Stampin’ Up! Pick a Pumpkin & Count My Blessings

Today’s card was inspired by challenges this week at Sunday Stamps and Fab Friday.

Today’s card starts off with Rich Razzleberry cardstock.  I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and matted it on Tranquil Tide cardstock and adhered it to the card.

I cut out two (almost) squares.  I cut out two Whisper White panels and stamped the sentiment from the Count My Blessings stamp set in Rich Razzleberry ink on the smaller one.  I matted that one on Rich Razzleberry cardstock and the other on Tranquil Tide cardstock.

I cut out the pumpkin and leaves using the Patterned Pumpkins Framelits and Rich Razzleberry, Tranquil Tide, and Cajun Crazy cardstock.  I adhered the leaves behind the sentiment with a piece of Burlap ribbon and then the pumpkin towards the bottom.  I added a few gold sequins and enamel shapes to finish it off.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Pick a Pumpkin

My card today starts off with Tangerine Tango cardstock.  I then took two panels of a pattern from the Painted Autumn DSP, mounted them on Tangerine Tango cardstock, and adhered them over a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock.

I took another panel of Very Vanilla cardstock and mounted it on Gold cardstock.  I then stamped the sentiment from the Better Together stamp set in Old Olive ink on the Very Vanilla cardstock.  I added a Tangerine Tango and Gold enamel dot in the upper left hand corner.

I then used the Pick a Pumpkin Bundle to create my focal point.  I stamped the pumpkins/gourd/leaves in Peekaboo Peach, Tangerine Tango, Crushed Curry, and Old Olive inks.  Hands down my favorite piece to this bundle is the die cut pumpkin (Gold cardstock) and curly stems (Old Olive).

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Class Thank You

I try to give a little something extra to say thank you for my stamp party attendees.  It’s not always a card, sometimes it’s a treat or a special ordering deal.

When I do a card, I write my message on a Post-It so the recipient can reuse it.

If you are in the Upstate New York area, I’d love to have you attend one of my parties.  You can check them out on my Facebook page.  I am SO excited for my Holiday Catalog Party next Friday – can we say ladies night out!!

Back to my card for today…

My card starts with Tangerine Tango cardstock.  I then took a panel of Tranquil Tide cardstock which I clipped the end to be a banner.  I then dry embossed it using the Petal Burst embossing folder.  I then took a pattern from the Whole Lot of Lovely DSP and clipped the end to be a banner and layered it over the Tranquil Tide.

I stamped the sentiment from the Label Me Pretty stamp set in Tranquil Tide ink on Pool Party cardstock.  I cut it out and the scalloped circles (Tangerine Tango and Basic Black cardstock) using the Layering Circles framelits.

I doubled up a piece of Pool Party Baker’s Twine and tied a bow to finish it off.

Enjoy!

My cards were inspired by this week’s Fusion challenge.

Stampin’ Up! Back to School

My card today is inspired by the Freshly Made Sketches challenge this week.

This past Thursday my kiddos started back to school.  I always like to make a card for their lunch box telling them how proud I am of them and encouraging them in the new year ahead.  If you go down a bit on my Facebook page, you can see this years’ cards.

I created today’s card with the idea of slipping them in their lunches maybe in about a month or so, you know when homework is in full swing, the novelty of a new year is wearing off, and the reality of tests and quizzes is setting in.

Today’s card’s base is Thick Whisper White cardstock which I covered with a pattern from the Pick a Pattern DSP.  I then matted a panel of Whisper White cardstock on Flirty Flamingo cardstock and adhered that to the card.

Using the Layering Circles Framelits, I cut out another pattern from the Pick a Pattern DSP and matted it on a scalloped Flirty Flamingo circle.

I then used the Bunch of Banners Framelits to cut out yet another pattern from the Pick a Pattern DSP.  My sentiment comes from the Watts of Occasions stamp set and I thought it fit my card perfectly.  I stamped the sentiment in Memento Black ink and cut them apart and adhered them to the card.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Lemon Zest – Two Ways

Before we get to today’s card, just a reminder that you have until noon today (September 1st) to order one of my 2017 Holiday Catalog product shares.  You can see all the details here.

My card today is inspired by the sketch challenge this week at Global Design Project.

My card today starts off with a Panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I used the Lemon Zest stamp set and Peekaboo Peach, Lemon Lime Twist, Daffodil Delight, and Pink Pirouette inks to create my pattern.  I then stamped the sentiment in Memento Black ink.

I matted the Whisper White cardstock on a panel of Lemon Lime Twist cardstock and then tied a bow around them using the Lemon Lime Twist Ombre Ribbon.  I then adhered that to a Peekaboo Peach card front.

And the inside…

Without thinking, I first cut the Whisper White cardstock too small to coordinate with the sketch challenge.  I had already stamped it out and didn’t want to just toss it, so I made another card and this time used Daffodil Delight ribbon and changed the sentiment.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! For You – Jar Of Love

Today’s Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop is a color challenge.

My card starts off with Emerald Envy cardstock which I adhered a panel of Whisper White cardstock over.  I took a pattern from the Pick A Pattern DSP.  I cut two 1″ banners of and adhered them unevenly on the card.

I stamped the middle sized jar from the Jar of Love stamp set in Versamark ink, sprinkled it with white embossing powder, and then heat embossed.  I cut it out using the Everday Jars framelits.  I wrapped around some Flirty Flamingo Baker’s Twine around the top of it.

I first stamped the two flowers, stamping off first, in Flirty Flamingo ink.  I stamped the inside of the flower in full strength Flirty Flamingo.  I added a strip of Flirty Flamingo Grosgrain Ribbon over the jar and stamped the sentiment in Memento Black ink.

My card was inspired by this week’s challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments.

Bike Ride – CAS Card

My card today was inspired by this week’s CAS(E) this Sketch and TGIF challenges.

My card today is a super simple CAS (clean and simple) card.  This card is great because it uses only three ink colors and (other than the gravel) does not use the Big Shot.  It’s great for a beginning stamper or someone looking for a quick cute card.

My card today starts off with Lemon Lime Twist cardstock.  I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock for my scene.  To the right side I used the Labeler Alphabet to stamp my sentiment in Crushed Curry and Lemon Lime Twist ink.

I used the Bike Ride Stamp Set to create my bike which I stamped using Pool Party and Crushed Curry ink.  I used the “gravel” embossing thinlit that comes in the Build a Bike framelits to create some texture under the bike.

I took the banner from the Build a Bike Framelits and cut out a banner (twice) in the corner.  I then matted the Whisper White cardstock on Crushed Curry cardstock.

Enjoy!

Oh So Eclectic Stampin’ Up!

For my card today, I’m prepping for my August Make & Take party.  For my party, we’ll be making four cards using the Oh So Eclectic Bundle.  If you’re in the Upper New York area, I’d love to have you join me!!  Check out the details on my Facebook page here.

My card starts with Night of Navy cardstock.  I then took a pattern from the Naturally Eclectic DSP, matted it on Soft Sky cardstock, and adhered it to the card.

Next I took some Berry Burst Crinkled Ribbon and sort of folded it on itself and adhered it down.  I cut out one flower in Soft Sky cardstock and one in Peekaboo Peach cardstock using the Eclectic Layers Framelits and adhered it over the ribbon.

Lastly, I stamped the petal stamp from the Oh So Eclectic Stamp on Peekaboo Peach cardstock in Peekaboo Peach ink and then stamped the sentiment in Night of Navy over it and cut it out.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Badges & Banners

Today’s card was inspired by this week’s Fab Friday challenge.

My card today starts off with Thick Whisper White cardstock.  I took another panel of Whisper White cardstock and used the Swirly Bird stamp set to stamp different sized swirls over it in Berry Burst, Melon Mambo, and Powder Pink ink.  I matted this on Melon Mambo cardstock and adhered it to the card.

I next stamped two badges.  The one badge I stamped in Versamark ink on Melon Mambo cardstock, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat embossed it.  I cut it out with the Best Badge punch and adhered two strips of Powder Pink ribbon behind it. The other I stamped in Powder Pink ink and cut it out using the Layering Circles Framelits.

Before adhering the banners, I added a banner of Powder Pink cardstock behind them.

Enjoy!
