Stampin’ Up! Under My Umbrella It’s Your Day Card

This week’s Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop is a color challenge.  Happy hopping!

My card today starts off with Lovely Lipstick cardstock.

I next took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the raindrops on it in Mint Macaron ink and then matted it on Basic Black cardstock.

I next stamped the umbrella and flowers in Memento Black ink on Whisper White cardstock.  I colored them in using Mint Macaron (umbrella, leaves), Pink Petal (flower), Lovely Lipstick (other flower) Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I cut the umbrella and handle out using the Umbrella Builder Punch and fussy cut out the flowers, cascading them down from the umbrella.

Lastly I stamped the sentiment from the Under My Umbrella Stamp Set in Versamark ink on Basic Black cardstock, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it.  I then cut it out with the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.

Enjoy!


Today’s card was inspired by this week’s Global Design Project challenge.

The colors are so fun and bright and we sure hope you’ll play along!!

My card starts off with Mint Macaron cardstock which I embossed using the Parisian Flourish Embossing Folder.

Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Friendship Birthday Card

I love creating cards with specific people in mind.
It means I can customize them specifically to that person’s likes and personality.

Today’s card is one I created for a dear friend’s birthday.  She loves bright pink, flowers, and bling…this is what I created…

My card starts off with Lovely Lipstick cardstock.  I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the flowers from the To A Wild Rose in Lovely Lipstick ink (stamping off for the lighter shade) and the leaves around it in Mossy Meadow ink (stamping off for the lighter shade).

I did the same on a separate piece of Whisper White cardstock and cut it out using the Wild Rose Dies.  I adhered it down using Stampin’ Dimensionals and then stamped the sentiment from the To A Wild Rose Stamp Set next to it in Lovely Lipstick ink.

I matted this on Vellum and tied a Lovely Lipstick ribbon next to the flowers.  Lastly, I added a few rhinestones.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tropical Birthday Card

This month’s Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop theme is “Birthday.”  Have fun hopping around and seeing what the team created!

My card starts off with Lovely Lipstick cardstock which I embossed using the Coastal Weave Embossing Folder.

I then matted this on Granny Apple Green cardstock.  I took a Flirty Flamingo Heart Doily and adhered the edge of it to the right of the Whisper White panel where the flowers will be.

I used the In The Tropics Dies and cut out leaves from Granny Apple Green and Pear Pizzazz cardstock.  I cut out flowers from Lovely Lipstick and Flirty Flamingo cardstock.

Lastly I added a few Lovely Lipstick Enamel Dots.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Clean and Simple Capture the Good Birthday Card

Ready for today’s card…
Super simple…
Super clean…

One word – Minimal.  As I created it and looked at it I debated on whether to add more, but in the end decided it was all about the camera and to leave it as such.

My card starts off with Balmy Blue cardstock.

I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the camera from the Capture the Good Stamp Set in Memento Black ink.  I colored it in using Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I then matted it on more Whisper White cardstock.

I stamped the camera three more times, colored in the lens, and used the Layering Circles Dies to cut out the different sizes of lens to layer using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the “oh snap” in Memento Black ink on Balmy Blue cardstock and cut it out with the same circles dies and added a Mini Library Clip to it.  Lastly, I stamped the “it’s your day” in Balmy Blue ink under the camera.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Free Kerchief Card Kit

I’m all for designing cards from scratch.  I love the creative process of starting with white cardstock and going from there.

But it’s also nice to have a kit that is all designed and ready for assembly…and is just as beautiful.

Can it get any better?  Yes of course…when the kit is FREE!!!

Today’s cards are from the Kerchief Card Kit from the Sale-A-Bration Catalog and are free with a qualifying order of $50+.

It has two designs of cards featuring beautiful designer paper, sweet sentiments, and fun embellishments.  The kit includes four of each of the two designs, so you get eight pre-designed cards ready for quick and easy assembly.

This is a great kit to get during Sale-A-Bration through March 31st or while supplies last.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Witty-Cisms Graduation Card

This week’s Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop is a color challenge.  Happy hopping!

My card today starts off with Basic Black cardstock.  I then cut another panel of Basic Black cardstock and embossed it using the Corrugated Embossing Folder.

Next I took panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the congratulations from the Delightful Day Stamp Set in Memento Black ink across the front, sometimes not re-inking in order to get a lighter shade.

I then matted this on Gold Foil and wrapped a Basic Black knot around it.

I stamped the “you did it” from the Witty-Cisms Stamp Set in Memento Black ink and cut it out using the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I then used the Layering Squares Dies to cut out a scalloped Basic Black square and Gold square to layer underneath it.

I then lastly added a few sequins from the Peaceful Poppies Sequins to the one corner.
