Stampin’ Up! Tropical Chic New Home Card

You might see today’s card and think – tropical theme and a new home card?!

They don’t go together.

And you’d probably be right, but this card was designed with someone very special in mind.  My aunt is moving from the New England area to Florida, and they’re looking forward to the warm, ocean-y, palm tree atmosphere that this brings.

My card starts off with Soft Sea Foam cardstock.  I then adhered over it a pattern from the Tropical Escape Designer Series Paper.  I loved how Karren, from the Global Design Project’s design team, did her sentiment along the side and thought I would follow her lead.  I stamped the sentiment from the At Home With You stamp set in Shaded Spruce ink on a small panel of Whisper White cardstock.

I then stamped the leaves from the Tropical Chi stamp set in Granny Apple Green and Soft Sea Foam ink on Whisper White cardstock and cut them out using the coordinating Tropical Thinlits.

I tied a Granny Apple Green ribbon to go over the leaves and added a few Granny Apple Green Glittery Enamel Shapes.

Enjoy!


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

Stampin’ Up! Blended Seasons Congrats

A few of my blog posts this past week featured this beautiful Blended Seasons Bundle.

It’s an exclusive bundle available only in the month of August – while supplies last!

You can see these other posts here and here.

Today I’m using the soft flower image from the Blended Seasons Bundle to make a congrats card.

My card starts off with Lovely Lipstick cardstock.  I then took a panel of Powder Pink cardstock and cut a stitched frame out of it using the Stitched Seasons Framelits.  I matted this on Whisper White cardstock.

Next I cut the same stitched frame out of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the flower image from the Blended Seasons Stamp Set in Memento Black ink on it.

I used Lovely Lipstick and Flirty Flamingo Stampin Blends Markers for the flowers and Granny Apple Green Stampin Blends Markers to color in the leaves.

Lastly, I stamped the sentiment in Versamark ink on Granny Apple Green cardstock, sprinkled it with white embossing powder, and heat set it.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Best Route Congrats Card

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

My card today starts off with Blueberry Bushel cardstock which I embossed using the Simples Stripes Embossing Folder.

I then created some layering.  First I cut a square from a pattern from the Best Route Designer Series Paper.  Next I cut out a stitched circle from Mango Melody cardstock using the Stitched Shapes Framelits.  Then I wound around some Gray Granite and Blueberry Bushel ribbon.

I then cut a banner from a pattern from the Best Route DSP.  Over that I cut out the “congrats” from Whisper White cardstock using the Sunshine Wishes framelits.

Lastly I spelled out the “you’re going places” using Mango Melody ink and the Labeler Alphabet Stamp Set.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Fabulous Flamingo – HSS294

This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments we have an inspiration challenge.  It’s a really fun one and I hope you participate!

My card today starts off with Coastal Cabana cardstock.  I stamped the palm leaves from the Fabulous Flamingo stamp set in Coastal Cabana ink to the right of the cardstock and then wrapped around some Powder Pink ribbon into a bow.

I took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and used the Stamparatus to create my flamingo.  I used Flirty Flamingo and Powder Pink ink and Memento Black ink.

I matted this on Flirty Flamingo cardstock and adhered it to the card.

I stamped the sentiment from the Fabulous Flamingo Stamp Set in Versamark ink, sprinkled it with white embossing powder, and heat set it.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Artisan Textures Congratulations

Back in the day Gorgeous Grunge was my go-to stamp for an “artistic flare.”

So when I saw the new Artisan Textures Stamp Set in the Annual Catalog – I didn’t want it – I needed it!

My card starts off with Fresh Fig cardstock which I embossed using the Subtle embossing folder.  I next matted a piece of Whisper White cardstock on Mint Macaron cardstock.

I used the Artisan Textures Stamp Set to first stamp the larger “splotch” in Mint Macaron ink.  Then I stamped the “sponged” image in Grapefruit Grove ink.  Lastly I stamped the “dotted” image in Versamark ink, which I sprinkled with Gold Embossing Powder, and heat set.

Next I stamped the sentiment from the Flourishing Phrases Stamp Set in Fresh Fig ink on Whisper White cardstock and tucked a trimmed Grapefruit Grove colored doily behind it.

I wound some Gold Thread behind the sentiment and adhered it using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I then added a Grapefruit Grove pearl from the Share What You Love Artisan Pearls and a sequin from the Basic Adhesive-Backed Sequins.

Enjoy!


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

Stampin’ Up! Friendly Expressions Card

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

My card today starts off with Grapefruit Grove cardstock which I embossed using the Basket Weave embossing folder.

Next I matted a panel of Petal Pink cardstock on Whisper White cardstock and then a pattern from the Share What You Love Designer Series Paper on Basic Black cardstock.

Next I covered the “you make me” from the sentiment from the Friendly Expressions stamp set with washi tape, inked it up with Memento Black ink, removed the washi tape, and stamped it on Whisper White cardstock.  I then cut this out using the Stitched Shapes Framelits.

Then I reversed it and this time covered the “proud” from the sentiment with washi tape, inked it up with Memento Black ink, removed the washi tape, and stamped it on Petal Pink cardstock.  I adhered this over the oval and adhered it down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a few Grapefruit Grove Share What You Love Artisan Pearls to finish it off.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Floral Frames Congrats Card

For my friends in the United States – Happy 4th of July!

Hope you have a great day and stay safe!

My card today is all about the layers!

I. Love. Layers.

My card starts off with Berry Burst cardstock.  I then matted a panel of Whisper White cardstock on Soft Sea Foam cardstock.

I then stamped the frame from the Floral Frames Stamp Set in Stazon Black Ink on Whisper White cardstock.  I then used a Blender Pen and Berry Burst, Granny Apple Green, and Soft Sea Foam Inks to color it in.

Note:  When using a Blender Pen, ideally you would use watercolor paper.  However, I goofed and stamped on Whisper White cardstock so I just made sure to lightly color in the images and not go over the paper too much.

I then created the layering using Berry Burst Ribbon, Mini Gold Sequins, a banner I cut out from Vellum cardstock using the Bunch of Banners Framelits.  I also cut out images using the coordinating Foliage Frame Framlits and Granny Apple Green and Soft Sea Foam cardstock.  I added some Pearls around the frame.

Lastly I used the Sunshine Wishes Framelits and Gold Foil Paper to cut out the sentiment.  I adhered it down using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!

Fabulous Flamingo Stampin’ Up!

My card today was inspired by three challenges this week, Hand Stamped Sentiments, Paper Craft Crew, and Stamp, Ink, Paper.

My card starts off with Tempting Turquoise cardstock.  I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and the Fabulous Flamingo stamp set to create my scene.  I stamped the water image in Soft Sky ink and Tempting Turquoise ink on the bottom and stamped the palm leaf image in Bermuda Bay and Lemon Lime Twist ink at the top.

Next I took a 3″x3″ square of Tempting Turquoise cardstock and embossed it using the Seaside embossing folder.

I stamped the solid flamingo image in Memento Black ink on Whisper White cardstock and fussy cut it out using Paper Snips.  Then I stamped the sentiment in Tempting Turquoise ink on Soft Sky cardstock.

Enjoy!

Yesterday I finally (after having set the goal months ago to do so) did my first Facebook Live Video making this card.

You can check it out here on my Facebook page.  Of course something was going to go wrong because it was my first one and I was, well, live, so just be aware that the camera is upside down for the first 5 minutes.  (Face in hand.)  Oh well.

In my video I switched around the sentiment to “Thanks.”  Here are the two cards below.

Oh So Eclectic & Embossing Paste

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

My card today starts off with Bermuda Bay cardstock.  I’ve been wanting to try the Embossing Paste for a while now and finally got the goodies to do so!!  I took a panel of Lemon Lime cardstock and placed one of the Pattern Party Decorative Masks over it.  Using one of the Palette Knives I smeared the embossing paste over it, pulled it off, and then let it dry.  This was my first time using the embossing paste and I’m in love!!!

I then used the Oh So Eclectic Bundle to create my focal point.  I stamped in Versmark the various images on a variety of cardstock colors, sprinkled them with White Embossing Powder, and heat embossed them.  I cut them out with the coordinating Eclectic Layers from the bundle.  I adhered them over the embossing paste (now dry).

I stamped the sentiment from the Special Celebrations in Versamark ink on Berry Burst cardstock, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat embossed it.  I layered underneath it a strip of Bermuda Bay ribbon and added a few enamel circles.

Enjoy!
