Stampin’ Up! Verdant Garden Card

I sure hope you all are well and holding up!!

I hope this week’s cards bring a smile to your face.

My card today starts off with Soft Sea Foam cardstock.  I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the one image from the Verdant Garden Stamp Set on it in Soft Sea Foam ink (stamped off first for a lighter shade).  It’s hard to notice, but I matted this on Mossy Meadow cardstock.

I then used the Stitched Shapes Dies and cut out a circle from the Garden Lane Designer Series Paper.  I used a smaller circle and cut out two circles from Mossy Meadow cardstock.  I used the same die that I used to cut out the DSP and cut into each of the Mossy Meadow circles.  I then embossed these using the Subtle Embossing Folder.

I adhered the circles down using Stampin’ Dimensionals and then stamped the sentiment from the Beauty Abounds Stamp Set in Mossy Meadow ink.

Enjoy!


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

Stampin’ Up! Two Cards Using Love You To Pieces Stamp

What color do you struggle using?

You know, that color that you avoid almost at all cost.
For me it’s yellow…and then orange (unless it’s fall).

But when I saw the FabFriday challenge (see below), I wanted to challenge myself.

I took inspiration from Tami White’s card

My card starts off with Mango Melody cardstock.  I then took a Daffodil Delight pattern from the Brights Designer Series Paper and matted it on Whisper White cardstock.

I took a piece of Whisper White cardstock and used the Puzzle Pieces Dies to cut out a big puzzle.  I stamped the “love you” in Mango Melody ink and “to pieces” in Terracotta Tile ink from the Love You To Pieces Stamp Set.  I adhered these down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Lastly I added a Daffodil Delight bow.

Because the first card used so much yellow and orange…I then decided to make a card using the same stamps and dies and still using the challenge colors, but just a little less of them.

Here they are together.  Which one is your favorite?

My card today starts off with Pool Party cardstock.  I then took a pattern from the Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper and matted it on Whisper White cardstock.

I stamped the outline of the hot air balloon and basket in Calypso Coral on Whisper White cardstock and the inside in the same, only stamped off for a lighter shade.  I cut them out using the coordinating Hot Air Balloon Punch.

I stamped the outside of the flag in Pool Party ink and the inside in the same, stamped off.  I fussy cut this out to adhere over the balloon.

I stamped the sentiment from the Above the Clouds in Calypso Coral ink.  I cut it out using the Stitched Rectangles Dies.  I shortened the size to make it fit better.

Stampin’ Up! Bird Ballad Card

How’s everyone holding up!?

We’re making the most of it here and adapting to the new norm.

If nothing else, I’m getting crafting in.

My card today starts off with Thick Whisper White cardstock.  I then layered a pattern from the Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper on Whisper White cardstock.

Next I took another pattern from the Bird Ballad DSP and fussy cut it out.  These images are beautiful and although take some patience and time to cut them, I LOVE the end result!!  I adhered this image down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Next I stamped the sentiment from the Varied Vases Stamp Set in Versamark ink on Basic Black cardstock.  I sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder and heat set it.  I then added a few champagne rhinestones around.

Enjoy and stay healthy everyone!!

Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tropical Friendship Card

How’s everyone holding up?

Things seem a bit crazy right now and I pray you find peace in it all.  As we move forward with little to no social contact, I’m grateful for stamping as a great way to pass time.

My card today starts with Daffodil Delight cardstock.  I took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the flower from the Timeless Tropical Stamp Set in Mango Melody ink and then matted it on Soft Suede cardstock.

I used the Stitched Shapes Dies to cut out a larger circle from Mango Melody cardstock and a smaller one from Daffodil Delight cardstock.  Under them I adhered a pattern from the Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper.

I stamped the flower and leaves from the Timeless Tropical Stamp Set in Memento Black ink.  I colored them in using Mango Melody and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends for the flower and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends for the leaves.  I cut these out using the coordinating In The Tropics Dies.

Lastly I stamped the sentiment from the Timeless Tropical Stamp Set in Mango Melody ink.

Enjoy!


Today’s card is part of this week’s new Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge.  It’s a great design and I sure hope you’ll play along!

Stampin’ Up! By The Dock Watercolor Card

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

My card starts off with Coastal Cabana cardstock.

I took a panel of Watercolor Paper and generously applied water using an Aqua Painter.  I added one layer of Coastal Cabana ink to it using the Aqua Painter, dried it with the Heat Tool, wet the paper again, and added more color.

By adding color, drying it, and adding more color, you get a nice layered look of color.

I then offset a panel of Soft Suede cardstock underneath it.

I then stamped the dock and birds in Soft Suede ink and boat in Early Espresso ink on Watercolor Paper.  I used my Aqua Painter, not too wet, to pull color out from the stamped image.  I cut these out using the coordinating Dockside Dies.

I also added a little Daffodil Delight ink to the bellies of the birds.

I then stamped the sentiment from the By The Dock Stamp Set in Early Espresso ink on a Crumb Cake banner.  I adhered all the images down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Honey Bee Card Video Tutorial

I just love the Honey Bee Bundle and since seeing it had the idea of stamping the sentiment opposite each other.

So I decided to give it a try last week in my Live Tutorial.
I started off with the one with a Basic Black cardstock base, but for the live wanted to try the same design with a Daffodil Delight cardstock base.

To give a little background to the bee I used a Sponge Dauber to add a little Daffodil Delight coloring.  So be sure to let me know which one you like more, the Basic Black or Daffodil Delight.

I’ll be back tonight on my Facebook page at 7:30 pm EST with a new live card tutorial, this time using the Timeless Tropical Bundle.  Be sure to join me live as you might just receive tonight’s card.
