Stampin’ Up! Small Bloom Punch Card

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

My card starts off with Thick Whisper White cardstock.

On the card front I stamped the small leaf multiple times from the Thoughtful Blooms Stamp Set in Versamark ink, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it.

I used the Thoughtful Blooms Stamp Set and stamped one of the flowers in Versamark ink on Vellum cardstock.  I sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder and heat set it.  I did this multiple times and then used the Small Bloom Punch to cut them out, as well as a bunch of other flowers from Pool Party and Petal Pink cardstock.

I adhered these down cascading down the card.

I used the Christmas Cardinal Dies and cut out little swirls from Vellum cardstock to add around the flowers and then added some rhinestones to finish it off.

I stamped the sentiment from the Thoughtful Blooms Stamp Set in Versamark ink on Pool Party ink, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Friendship Congrats Card

This week is Christmas.  I’ll be posting as normal (except for Wednesday).

I hope you have a great week ahead!  My kids are now home and it’s my favorite vacation of the year.

It’s freezing here which forces us to stay inside and relax.  Kids will play with new Christmas gifts.  There’ll be many PJ days and lots of board game playing and stamping for me.  It’s a super relaxed week and to tell you the truth – I’m more giddy about the week ahead than actual Christmas day (which can be a bit chaotic).

Christmas cards are done so I’m back to making regular every day cards (which are much needed as my stash is depleted.

My card today starts off with Pear Pizzazz cardstock.

I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the flowers from the Beautiful Friendship Stamp Set in So Saffron ink and the leaves in Pear Pizzazz ink in the corners.  I then tucked a Soft Sea Foam pattern from the Subtles Designer Series Paper pack behind it.

I then stamped the sentiment from the Beautiful Friendship in Pear Pizzazz ink on Soft Sea Foam cardstock and snipped the end in a banner.

I wound some Whisper White Baker’s Twine underneath and added a few pearls around it.

Enjoy!


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

Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Blog Hop

This month’s Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop theme is “Celebrate.”  Have fun hopping around to see how everyone interpreted “celebrate” this month.

I decided to make congratulations cards celebrating a new baby.

Yesterday I shared how much I love the Parisian Blossoms Suite in the 2020 Jan-June Mini Catalog.  Consider today’s card Part 2 to yesterday’s as I’m using the Parisian Flourish, Petal Pink Metallic-Edge Ribbon, and Champagne Rhinestones from the same suite.

My card starts off with Thick Whisper White cardstock.  I then took a panel of Petal Pink cardstock and embossed it using the Petal Flourish Embossing Folder.  I cut off 1″ from the bottom, and then another 1″ off.  I threw away the second cut and adhered the top and bottom using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

In the negative space I stamped the sentiment from the Beautiful Friendship Stamp Set in Petal Pink ink.   I wrapped around some Petal Pink ribbon and added a few Champagne Rhinestones.

I figured while I had everything out, I should go ahead and make another card for a new baby boy.  I used all the same product except used Pool Party, Whisper White Baker’s Twine, and regular Rhinestones.

Here they are together…

Stampin’ Up! Feels Like Frost Congrats Card

The Feels Like Frost Designer Series Paper is gorgeous!!!

One side has silver geometric patterns, but the other side has beautiful, photographed images.  This paper is worth getting all the attention of a card, so I kept it super simple today.

My card starts off with Purple Posy cardstock.  On it I adhered a pattern from the Feels Like Frost Designer Series Paper.

I stamped the sentiment from the Special Celebrations Stamp Set in Versamark ink on Highland Heather cardstock, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it.  I cut it out using the Stitched Rectangles Dies.

I used the Lovely Flowers Dies and cut out small flowers from Purple Posy and Highland Heather cardstock.  Lastly, I added Rhinestones on each of the flowers.

(You’ll notice one rhinestone had fallen off when I photographed the card; however, I realized this just in time before sending the card out 😉

I needed two of these cards, so I took another pattern from the Feels Like Frost Designer Series Paper and used Seaside Spray and Night of Navy cardstock.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! So Many Stars Congratulations Card

Today’s card is pretty simple…but the stars are SO MUCH FUN!

They’re in the Holiday Catalog and shown primarily used for holiday stamping, but I think they’re perfect for all occasion cards – the possibilities are endless!

My card starts off with Blackberry Bliss cardstock and then I adhered a Whisper White panel over it.

I then used the Stitched Stars Dies to cut out stars from Blackberry Bliss, Cajun Craze, Pretty Peacock, and Mint Macaron cardstock.  I also used the smallest star to cut out negative stars to let the Blackberry Bliss show through.

Lastly I stamped the sentiment from the Delightful Day Stamp Set in Pretty Peacock ink.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Congratulations Card for Team Member

Today’s card was designed for one of my team members who recently promoted in her Stampin’ Up! business.

Right now is a great time to join my team as Stampin’ Up! has an amazing deal going on and tomorrow is the last day!!  For just $99 get $155 work of product and it ships for free!

My card starts off with Petal Pink cardstock which I embossed with the Pinewood Planks Embossing Folder.

I then took a panel of Shimmer White cardstock and stamped the flower from the Good Morning Magnolia Stamp Set in Versamark ink.  I sprinkled it with Gold Embossing Powder and heat set it.

I colored it in using an Aqua Painter and Petal Pink and Grapefruit Grove (flower) and Call Me Clover (leaves) inks.  I stamped the sentiment from the Special Celebrations Stamp Set in Versamark ink and embossed it in gold also.  Lastly I added a Petal Pink ribbon.

Enjoy!


Today’s card was loosely inspired by this week’s Fab Friday Challenge.  I say “loosely” because I had every intention of using the Blueberry Bushel color and it just didn’t happen.

Stampin’ Up! CAS Above the Clouds Graduation Card

Today’s card is a CAS (clean and simple) card that we made at my last stamp class.

If you’re local and interested in attending a stamp class, I have the September classes posted on my Facebook page.

My card starts off with Balmy Blue cardstock.  I next took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the clouds from the Above the Clouds Stamp Set on it multiple times in Balmy Blue ink.  I then matted this on Night of Navy cardstock.

Next I stamped the outline of the hot air balloon and basket in Flirty Flamingo ink on a separate piece of Whisper White cardstock.  I stamped the “filler” of each also in Flirty Flamingo, but this time I stamped off first.  I cut these out using the Hot Air Balloon Punch and adhered them down with Stampin’ dimensionals.

Next I stamped the outline of the banner in Night of Navy ink and the “filler” in the same, but stamping off first.  I fussy cut it out and adhered it over the balloon.  I stamped the sentiment from the Above the Clouds Stamp Set in Night of Navy ink on Flirty Flamingo cardstock.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Masking Technique Above the Clouds Card

All bundles are great…
But a bundle with a punch is perfect for quick and easy cards, as well as ideal for beginner stampers.

Today’s card uses the Above the Clouds Bundle, which includes the Hot Air Balloon Punch.  Bundles also save you 10% off which makes it even sweeter.

My card starts off with Pacific Point cardstock.  I took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and first stamped the hot air balloons in Memento Black ink.  This will later get matted on another panel of Whisper White cardstock.

I used the Masking Technique which gives the allusion that one hot air balloon is behind the other.

All you do is first stamp one of the balloons.  Then punch out a hot air balloon from a Post-It Note.  Cover that first balloon with the punched out hot air balloon.  Make sure the paper is not too far over the edge or else you’ll get a white line around the balloon.  Then just stamp the second hot air balloon over the Whisper White/Post-It Note.

I used Pineapple Punch and Bermuda Bay ink to color in the balloons (stamping off first).  Keeping the mask over the balloons, I stamped the clouds around them in Pacific Point ink.  I stamped the banner in Memento Black and stamped the banner image in Lovely Lipstick ink (stamping off first).  I fussy cut it out and adhered it down with mini dimensionals (cutting them in half).

Lastly I stamped the sentiment from the Above the Clouds Stamp Set in Pacific Point ink on Pineapple Punch cardstock and adhered it down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! A Little Lace Seaside Spray Card

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

My card starts off with Seaside Spray cardstock.  Basically, my whole card is Seaside Spray.  I have come to really love this color!

Next I took a Seaside Spray pattern from the 2019-2021 Designer Series Paper pack and matted it on Whisper White cardstock.  I then wrapped around it some Seaside Spray Scalloped Linen Ribbon.

Using the Stitched Nested Dies, I cut out a Whisper White panel and trimmed the one end of it.  I stamped the image from the A Little Lace Stamp Set on it in Seaside Spray ink.

I stamped the sentiment from the A Little Lace Stamp Set in Versamark ink, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it.

Lastly I tied a Linen Thread bow through a Bird Ballad Trinket and adhered it next to the stamped image.

Enjoy!
