Stampin’ Up! Harvest Hellos Halloween Card

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

My card starts off with Basic Black cardstock.

Next I took a square panel of Pumpkin Pie cardstock and stamped the pumpkin, stem, and curl images from the Harvest Hellos Stamp Set in Pumpkin Pie ink.  Underneath it I offset a panel of Whisper White cardstock.

Next I took a small piece of Basic Black cardstock and stamped the sentiment from the Harvest Hellos Stamp Set on it in Versamark ink, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it.

I stamped the pumpkin image in Pumpkin Pie ink and colored it in using the Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends.  I did the same for the stem and leaf, this time using Crumb Cake.  The pumpkin and stem I cut out using the Apple Builder Punch and the leaf I fussy cut out.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Harvest Hellos Halloween Card

This month’s Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop theme is Halloween Fun.  Enjoy hopping around all the blogs to see what everyone created!

As I sat down to create today’s card, I realized I didn’t get any new stamps specifically for Halloween.  So I pulled out the Harvest Hellos Bundle and created a jack-o-lantern, which although doesn’t scream Halloween, are still carved for the occasion.

My card starts off with Thick Whisper White cardstock.  I then adhered a Pumpkin Pie pattern from the Regals Designer Series Paper to the right.

Next I created the pumpkin first by stamping the pumpkin image from the Harvest Hellos Stamp Set in Pumpkin Pie ink on Whisper White cardstock.  I colored it in using the Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the face over it in Memento Black ink and cut it out with the Apple Builder Punch.

I stamped the curls in Soft Suede ink.  On a separate piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the leaves in Mossy Meadow ink and colored them in with Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the stem in Soft Suede ink and colored it in using Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I fussy cut the leaves out using Paper Snips.

I stamped the sentiment from the Harvest Hellos Stamp Set in Versamark ink on Basic Black cardstock, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it.  I cut it out using the Stitched Nested Labels Dies.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Gather Together Fall Card

I usually have a lot of layers and matted cardstock on my cards, but both today and last Thursday I’ve kept things more simple…

and I really like how they came out!

Today’s card starts off with Pumpkin Pie cardstock.  I then took the Swirly Frames Stamp Set and stamped the circle twice in Cajun Craze ink.

I used the new Gather Together Bundle to create my leaf.  I first stamped it in Memento Black ink on Whisper White cardstock and then used Granny Apple Green, Mango Melody, Pumpkin Pie, and Cajun Craze Stampin’ Blends Markers to color it in.

I used the Seasonal Layers Dies and Mango Melody and Cajun Craze cardstock to cut out two leaves.  I stamped the sentiment from the Gather Together Stamp Set in Memento Black ink in the corner.

Lastly I wound some Cajun Craze Linen Thread to add over the leaf.

Enjoy!


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

Stampin’ Up! NEW Merry Moose Bundle

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

My card today is a fairly simple one, but I think the Merry Moose stamp set is so sweet and perfect for a clean design.

My card starts off with Pretty Peacock cardstock.  I stamped the trees from the Merry Moose Stamp Set on it in Pretty Peacock ink.

Next I wrapped some Cajun Craze ribbon around the base of the card in a bow.  I stamped the Buffalo Check Stamp Set in Cajun Craze ink on Whisper White cardstock, trimmed it down, and adhered it over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Itty Bitty Christmas Stamp Set in Versamark ink on Early Espresso cardstock, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it.

Lastly I stamped the moose from the Merry Moose Stamp Set in Early Espresso ink on Crumb Cake cardstock and cut it out using the Moose Punch.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Back to School Harvest Hellos Cards

My kiddos go back to school Thursday.

It’s always bitter-sweet, but I know both them and I are ready to get back in the swing of things.

I’m not sure exactly when the tradition started, but I always hide a card in their lunch box the first day of school.  My kiddos make their own lunches, so it’s getting harder and harder to “sneak” them in, but I know they look forward to them.

This year I made their cards using the Harvest Hellos and Buffalo Check Stamp Sets.  The cards are all a similar design, but with different details depending on their personality.

For my son, going into 6th grade, also my picky eater, he’ll only eat Granny Smith Apples, so of course his card had green apples using Granny Apple Green colors.

For my youngest daughter, going into 4th grade, she’s going through an “I love red and black” phase, so I kept a Basic Black card base and added some sparkly black ribbon.

For my oldest daughter, going into 8th grade, she’s obsessed with apples (yes, I even have to limit her to two apples a day), I kept things different than her sister’s (because heaven forbid I did the same) and added some extra details with the seeds.

Overall, I think they’ll like their cards and I can’t wait to hear all about their first day of school.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! To a Wild Rose Card HSS #322

If you haven’t noticed yet which embossing folder is my favorite, this week will definitely let you know.

Without realizing it, I used the Subtle Embossing Folder both yesterday and today.

My card today starts off with Blackberry Bliss cardstock.  I then adhered over it a Whisper White panel which I embossed using the Subtle Embossing Folder.

The colors for my card today were inspired by this week’s Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge.  Be sure to play along as it’s a very colorful one.

Next I used the To A Wild Rose Stamp Set to create my flowers.  I stamped the outline in Memento Black ink.  I stamped one flower in Rich Razzleberry and one in Rococo Rose ink, stamping off first for the more solid image.  I stamped the leaf outline in Memento Black ink and the inside in Smoky Slate ink.

I cut these out using the Wild Rose Dies.  I also used the dies to cut out Blackberry Bliss and Rococo Rose flowers and the leaves from Gray Granite cardstock.

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

Lastly, I added a Rococo Rose Faceted Dot next to the flowers and a few Rhinestones.

Enjoy!

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.
