Stampin’ Up! Part Of My Story Card

This week my projects will all  feature product from the Sale-A-Bration catalog.

This is free product with a qualified order that range from Designer Series Paper, stamp sets, ribbon, and much more!

Sale-A-Bration runs from January through the end of March.  It’s the perfect time to earn free product while getting the items on your wish list!

Also, there’ll be more items coming February 15th!

Today’s card focuses on the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper and Part Of My Story Stamp Set.

My card starts off with Balmy Blue cardstock which (although it’s hard to tell) I embossed using the Subtle Embossing Folder.

I then used the Layering Circles Framelits to cut out a scalloped circle from the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper.  I adhered another pattern from the same DSP underneath it in a banner.

I then stamped the sentiment from the Part Of My Story Stamp Set in Versamark ink on Basic Black cardstock.  I sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder and heat set it.

I added a piece of Flax Ribbon underneath it.

I used a pair of Paper Snips to fussy cut out a butterfly from the same DSP and adhered it with Stampin’ Dimensionals next to the sentiment and added a few Rhinestones.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Bloom By Bloom Card

Happy Friday everyone!!

I am constantly mailing out cards.  I keep my mailman pretty busy.

So when I receive one in the mail, it really makes my day!

My card today was inspired by a card that I received from one of my downlines, Karen.  I loved the overall design of it and decided to CASE it.  You can check out her blog here.

My card starts off with Call Me Clover cardstock.  I trimmed down the right side of the front flap of the card and adhered a pattern from the Happiness Blooms Designer Series Paper to the right inside of the card.

I used the Bloom By Bloom Stamp Set and stamped the flowers in Versamark ink over the Call Me Clover card front.

Next I took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the stem from the Bloom By Bloom Stamp Set in Call Me Clover ink and the petal in Petal Pink ink, matting this on Petal Pink cardstock.

I then stamped the sentiment from the Flourishing Phrases Stamp Set in the bottom corner.

What I love about this card is when you open the card front, the beautiful floral pattern of Happiness Blooms DSP is still there.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Beach Happy Card

This week’s Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop is a combined hop with the Happy Stampers Blog Hop.  Happy hopping!!

 

 

 

My card starts off with Flirty Flamingo cardstock which I embossed using the Seaside Embossing Folder.

Next I took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and used the Beach Happy Stamp Set to create my scene.  I stamped the outline of the chair, umbrella, and palm tree trunks in Memento Black ink.

You’ll notice that the palm tree trunk is shaped to go one way.  But because it’s a photopolymer stamp, you can just maneuver it on your block to bend any which way, like I did today.

I stamped the umbrella in Mango Melody and the chair in Flirty Flamingo ink.  I stamped the sand in Crumb Cake ink (stamping off first).

I stamped the palm branches in Old Olive ink.  I stamped the one on a separate piece of Whisper White cardstock, fussy cut it out, and adhered it using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I then snuck a piece of Vellum cardstock underneath the Whisper White and stamped the sentiment in Memento Black ink on Crumb Cake cardstock, adhering it down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Wonderful Romance – Thinking Of You

Today’s card features this week’s Hand Stamped Sentiments color challenge.  Be sure to swing by and play along!!  These colors are gorgeous together!!

The new Floral Romance Suite in the Occasions Catalog immediately caught my eye.  Beautiful, soft colors mixed with feminine touches and details.  It was a must have.

The best part – The Wonderful Romance Bundle earns you a free item from the Sale-A-Bration Catalog!!  That’s a win-win!

My card today starts off with Petal Pink cardstock.  I then used the vine die cut from the Wonderful Floral Thinlits to create the gorgeous lattice.

When cutting out the lattice, I put the top of the thinlit at the top of the card fold (this will mean some of the thinlit will “spill over” to the other side of the card).  Just made sure not to wind it all the way through the Big Shot – just until the top of the lattice is cut out.  (Hope that makes sense.)

Next I used Fresh Fig cardstock and cut out the beautiful oval.  I brushed it with the Embossing Buddy, stamped the sentiment in Versamark ink, and sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder.

Underneath the sentiment I added a few Mossy Meadow leaves (which I cut out with the Wonderful Floral Thinlits) and I also wound around some Silver Thread and added some Fresh Fig ribbon.

I took one of the vellum patterns from the Floral Romance Designer Series Paper and fussy cut it out a floral image, adhering it to the right of the sentiment.

I then added a few Frosted Flower Embellishments over that and adhered everything down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Let It Ride Watercolor Card

Happy Monday everyone!

I’ve always said watercoloring is not really “my thing.”
However, my daughter is obsessed with horses and I knew I NEEDED the Let It Ride Stamp Set.

So I opened up the Occasions Catalog and really tried to follow how Stampin’ Up! colored their horse.

My card starts off with Mango Melody cardstock.  I took a panel of Crumb Cake cardstock and embossed it using the Pinewood Planks embossing folder and then matted it on Whisper White cardstock.

Next I stamped the horse from the Let It Ride Stamp Set in Stazon Black Ink on Watercolor Paper.

I used an Aqua Painter and Soft Suede, Pumpkin Pie, and Mango Melody inks to color in the horse.  I used Crumb Cake, Coastal Cabana, and Granny Apple Green ink to color in the grass.

I then stamped the sentiment from the Let It Ride Stamp Set in Versamark ink on a pattern from the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper.  I sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder and set it with the Heat Tool.  I adhered this down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Humming Along Card

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

So these colors scream Valentine’s Day; however, being that yesterday’s card and the one the day before were both Valentine’s Day cards and used only Lovely Lipstick, I decided to make a thank you.

My card today starts off with Soft Sea Foam cardstock.  I then matted a pattern from the Brights Designer Series Paper (the flirty flamingo one) on Whisper White cardstock.

I stamped the hibiscus from the Humming Along Stamp Set in Memento Black ink on Whisper White cardstock.  I colored it in using Lovely Lipstick, Flirty Flamingo, and Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blends Markers and the fussy cut it out.

I cut out a stitched square using the Stitched Shapes Framelits and stamped the sentiment in Memento Black ink.  I adhered the hibiscus using Stampin’ Dimensionals and added a pearl next to the sentiment.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Quick and Simple Valentine’s Day Cards

This month’s Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop theme is “Love.”

I decided to make super simple Valentine’s Day cards.

Stampin’ Up! has started a social media campaign using the hashtag #simplestamping.  I love this idea, as really clean and simple cards can be very classy…and easy to whip up.

The cards start off with Lovely Lipstick cardstock.

I then matted a pattern from the All My Love Designer Series Paper on Whisper White cardstock.

I then stamped the sentiment from the Forever Lovely Stamp Set in Lovely Lipstick ink on a diagonal.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Lasting Lily Card

Shout out to my 12-year-old daughter for being my photographer for today’s card!!

I woke up early yesterday to go to work and it was still dark out.  I realized by the time I got home it would be dark again so I texted her to photograph today’s card while there was still sunlight.

I think she did a fabulous job!!

My card today starts off with Balmy Blue cardstock (although you can’t see it).  I adhered over it a pattern from the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper.

Next I matted a panel of Whisper White cardstock on Balmy Blue cardstock.

Then I inked up the lilies from the Lasting Lily Stamp Set using a dauber and Balmy Blue ink.  With the Distinktive stamps (like this one), less ink is definitely better.  A dauber gives you more control as to how much ink is being put on.

I did the same thing this time with Old Olive ink for the leaves and stems.  I then fussy cut the lilies out.

Under the lilies I adhered a pattern from the Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper.  I stamped the sentiment from the Lasting Lily Stamp Set in Versamark ink on Balmy Blue Cardstock, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it, adhering it down using Stampin Dimensionals.

Finally I added an Old Olive Linen Thread bow around the one lily.

Enjoy!


Today’s card was inspired by this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge.
