Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers Card

Wednesday I shared a card that I made as part of my October Team Mystery Stamping.

This was the original card that I worked off of, so you’ll see the general same layout, but different product which makes a whole new feel.

My card starts off with So Saffron cardstock which I embossed using the Timber Embossing Folder.

I then added a Pumpkin Pie pattern from the Regals Designer Series Paper to the card front. I then matted a pattern from the Beauty of the Earth Designer Series Paper on Basic White cardstock.

I stamped the sunflower from the Celebrate Sunflowers Stamp Set in Memento Black ink and colored it in using So Saffron, Pumpkin Pie, and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends.

I cut it out using the Sunflowers Dies, as well as a few sprigs from Soft Suede cardstock.

I stamped the sentiment from the Celebrate Sunflowers Stamp Set in Pumpkin Pie ink and cut it out using the Tasteful Labels Dies.

Lastly, I added a ribbon and some sequins next to the sunflower.

Be sure to CASE (copy and selectively edit) this very simple, yet full of texture and layers, card!

Stampin’ Up! Prized Peony Card

Each month I do a Mystery Stamping Evening with my team.

These are super fun because although all the cards look similar, they’re all completely unique.
Friday I’ll be sharing my other card (and those from the team), but I thought I’d share this card today.

It uses some favorites of mine from the Annual Catalog that haven’t gotten much love since I’ve been knee deep in Christmas cards.

The stamp is the Prized Peony, the embossing folder is the Macrame EF, and the paper is the In Good Taste DSP.

To make the flower a little special I did a little two tone stamping, which I will show you exactly how to do in my live tonight.

I made this card as part of my Wednesday night live tutorial over on Facebook.

In fact, it’s a super quick, simple, and easy card to make.

Stampin’ Up! Thanks & Hello Card

The sketch for this week’s Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop was a simple one, so I decided to follow suit.

May be an image of text that says 'Happy Inkin Thursday Blog Hop Dctober 14 Sketch Challenge'

My card starts off with Calyspo Coral cardstock.

I adhered a pattern from the Harvest Meadows Designer Series Paper to the card front.

Stampin’ Up! Joyful Life Card

The Joyful Life Stamp Set has just the cutest images!!

I’ve used it a couple of times already (here, here, here, here).

Stampin’ Up! Joyful Life Card

I decided to use it again for this week’s Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop theme: Leaves.

My card starts off with Cajun Craze cardstock. I then took a smaller panel and embossed it using the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder.

I really like to do this color on color with one panel embossed. It’s a simple detail but adds nice texture to the card. I did the same thing a couple of days ago with the Timber Embossing Folder.

Stampin’ Up! Joyful Life Card

I then used one die from the Seasonal Labels Dies and another from the Tasteful Labels Dies and cut out pieces from the Cork paper.

Stampin’ Up! Joyful Life Card

I stamped the images from the Joyful Life in Memento Black Ink and colored it in using Crumb Cake (bear), Old Olive (shirt, leaves), Smoky Slate (basic), Petal Pink (rabbit), Cajun Craze, Pumpkin Pie (leaves) Stampin’ Blends. I then fussy cut it all out and adhered down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin’ Up! Joyful Life Card

I stamped the sentiment from the In Symmetry Stamp Set in Cajun Craze ink, fussy cut out, and adhered it over the banner.

Lastly, I added a couple of Gilded Gems next to the sentiment.

Stampin’ Up! Christmas Season Just Because Card

I love taking Christmas elements and using them for a general winter greetings card.

I used two of my favorite colors together for this card, Evening Evergreen and Soft Succulent. They’re like peanut butter and jelly – just made for each other.

Stampin’ Up! Christmas Season Card

My card starts off with Soft Succulent cardstock. I took a smaller panel of Soft Succulent cardstock and embossed it using the Timber Embossing Folder.

Stampin’ Up! Christmas Season Card

I used the Layering Circle Dies to cut out a circle from the Tidings of Christmas Designer Series Paper and Basic White cardstock.

Stampin’ Up! Christmas Season Card

I used the Christmas Season Stamp Set and stamped the outline leaf in Soft Succulent ink and the detail over it in Evening Evergreen ink, and the outline pinecone is Soft Suede ink and the detail over it in Early Espresso ink I cut them out with the Seasonal Labels Dies.

Stampin’ Up! Christmas Season Card

I stamped the sentiment from the After the Storm Stamp Set in Versamark ink, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder and heat set it. I cut it out with the same Seasonal Labels Dies.

Lastly, I wound around some Evening Evergreen ribbon and secured it with a Linen Thread bow, and also added a few pearls around.

Stampin’ Up! Sweets & Treats Thank You Card

I am all for taking one item and using it for occasions and holidays outside of maybe what it was originally designed for.

Last Friday I shared a card I made for my team’s Mystery Stamping night.

The card I shared was the sample I made (though I didn’t show anyone until we were all done).
Today’s card is the one I made alongside my team Tuesday night.

My card starts off with Cajun Craze cardstock.

I then took a panel of Pumpkin Pie cardstock and embossed it using the Timber Embossing Folder. I matted it on a panel of Basic White cardstock alongside a pattern from the Pattern Party Designer Series Paper.

I stamped the sentiment from the Joyful Life Stamp Set in Cajun Craze ink and cut it out with the Seasonal Labels Dies, adhering it down with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the piggie from Joyful Life Stamp Set in Memento Black ink. I colored it in with Cajun Craze, Pumpkin Pie, Petal Pink, and Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends Markers. I then fussy cut it out and adhered it over the label.
