Stampin’ Up! NEW Daisy Lane Monochromatic Card

I really enjoy making monochromatic cards.
They’re usually a CAS (clean and simple) card and come together quick and easy.

And if you stamp off the inked image multiple times, you’ll get lighter variations of the same color.

My card today starts off with Shaded Spruce cardstock which I embossed using the Simple Stripes embossing folder.

Next I took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the leaf image from the NEW Daisy Lane Stamp Set (available June 4) across it in Shaded Spruce ink (only inking it up for the darkest shade).  I then matted this on Soft Sea Foam cardstock.

I stamped the sentiment from the Daisy Lane Stamp Set in Shaded Spruce ink on Soft Sea Foam cardstock.  Underneath it I wound around some Shaded Spruce ribbon (from the Metallic Ribbon combo) and a piece of White Flax Ribbon.  I adhered this down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Beauty Abounds Card – HSS#315

Hello stampers!!

Today’s card uses the Beauty Abounds Bundle.

Being a bundle means you save 10%.
However, when the new Annual Catalog begins (June 4), although the product will carry  over, it will no longer be offered as a bundle anymore.

So be sure to snag the Beauty Abounds Bundle now while you can still save the 10%.

Now on to today’s card…

My card today starts off with Gorgeous Grape cardstock which I covered with a Gorgeous Grape pattern from the Brights Designer Series Paper.  I then matted a panel of Whisper White cardstock on Coastal Cabana cardstock.

I used the large and small bokeh images from the Beauty Abounds Stamp Set and stamped the bubbles in Gorgeous Grape, Coastal Cabana, and Melon Mambo ink.

I used the Butterfly Beauty Dies to cut out a butterfly in Coastal Cabana and Basic Black.  The dies cut out one continuous butterfly image with a bunch of butterflies connected, but I took my Paper Snips and just snipped the one off.

I stamped the sentiment from the Another Wonderful Year Stamp Set (retiring) in Versamark ink on Gorgeous Grape cardstock, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it.

This is one of my all time favorite sentiments and I’m sad to see it going.

Lastly I added some Glitter Enamel Dots around the bokeh and a few black sequins.

Enjoy!


Today’s card features the new Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge.  It’s a great color challenge.  The Design Team and I sure hope you’ll play along.

Stampin’ Up! Rooted in Nature Bundle Card

Today my card uses the Rooted in Nature Bundle.

Something that’s very important to keep in mind as we head into the new Annual Catalog is that although the Rooted in Nature Stamp Set and Nature’s Roots Dies WILL be in the Annual Catalog, they WILL NOT be sold as a bundle anymore.

Stampin’ Up! can carry over product from one catalog to the next, but anything sold currently as a bundle will only be offered individually.

Why is this important?!
Because buying a bundle saves you 10%!

In my opinion, this is definitely a must-have bundle as it is so unbelievably versatile, so be sure to get it by June 3rd and save the 10%.

My card starts off with the brand new and beautiful Terracotta Tile cardstock which I embossed using the Pinewood Planks Embossing Folder.  This color is one of the new 2019-2021 In-Colors that will be available June 4th.  It is such a warm color, perfect for more earthy cards.

Next I matted a panel of Whisper White cardstock on Cajun Craze cardstock.  Cajun Craze is a great accent color for Terracotta Tile.  I stamped the sentiment from the Rooted in Nature Stamp Set in Terracotta Tile ink on the top of my card.

I used the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper to create my inverted banners.  I cut them in 3/4″ strips and slid them over the top of the Tailored Tag Punch and through the slit to cut them (see below) and trimmed them down to 1-1/2″.

Next I used the Rooted in Nature Bundle to stamp and die cut, as well as emboss and die cut out two leaves, in Terracotta Tile.

Lastly I added a Linen Thread bow over the leaves and stamped the rest of the sentiment on the inside.

Enjoy!


My card today was inspired by the fun sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches. I stayed pretty true to the sketch as I just had to make those inverted banners.  So fun!

I took it pretty literal as I had never made banners like this before…sort of inverted banners… and I definitely wanted to go for it.

Stampin’ Up! Floral Essence Mother’s Day Card

I just love me a good sketch challenge.

I find participating in challenges helps spring on creativity and this week’s Hand Stamped Sentiments sketch challenge is a good one.  I can’t wait to see what you create with it.

My card starts off with Mango Melody cardstock which I covered with a pattern from the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper (retiring and available while supplies last).  To the right I adhered a Mango Melody pattern from the Brights Designer Series Paper (also retiring).

I then made two flowers using the Floral Essence Stamp Set and coordinating Perennial Flower Punch (available June 4th).  I stamped the flowers, one in Mango Melody ink and the other in the same, but this time stamped off first for a softer look.

To see how I made these flowers bigger and fluffier, check out my Instagram page.

I stamped the leaves from the same Floral Essence stamp set in Old Olive ink and cut them out with the coordinating Leaf Punch.  In the middle of the flowers I adhered the new Perennial Essence Floral Centers which are so fun and add lots of texture to the card.

Lastly I stamped the sentiment from the Forever Lovely Stamp Set in Old Olive ink.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Daisy Lane Smile Card

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

My card today starts off with Sahara Sand cardstock.  I used the new Daisy Lane Stamp Set and stamped the fern image in Sahara Sand ink over it.

I used the Stitched Rectangle Dies and cut a larger one out of Highland Heather cardstock and a smaller one out of Whisper White cardstock.  On the Whisper White one, I stamped the “Smile” in Highland Heather ink and then adhered some burlap under it.

I used the Daisy Lane Stamp Set and stamped the stem in Pear Pizzazz ink and fussy cut it out.  I stamped the petals in Highland Heather ink and cut them out using the Daisy Punch.  I used a Sahara Sand Write Marker to color in the center of the flower.

I fluffed the petals using a bone folder and adhered it down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! First Frost Friend Card – HSS#313

Hello everyone!!

I’mpretty excited to bring you the next Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge.

What I love about the inspirational challenges is you can interpret them in so many different ways.  Can’t wait to see what you come up with.

My card starts off with Crumb Cake cardstock which I embossed using the Basket Weave Embossing Folder.

I then matted a panel of Whisper White cardstock on Bermuda Bay cardstock.  I adhered a panel of Flirty Flamingo cardstock over that and cut out the “friend” from the Well Written Dies.

Next I used the First Frost Stamp Set and coordinating Frosted Bouquet Dies to create my floral design.  I used Flirty Flamingo ink and Bermuda Bay, Coastal Cabana, Sahara Sand, and Crumb Cake cardstock.

Lastly I added a few Rhinestones and tied around a Linen Thread bow.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Tribute to Retiring In-Colors

As exciting as the new Annual Catalog is…

It means that the 2017-2019 In-Colors will be retiring, as well as a slew of other product, including one of my all time favorites – the Floral Frames Bundle.
Sniff…Sniff…

In an effort to pay tribute to them (and use up lots of product to make room for all the new In-Colors and other goodies coming), I created five cards using the same layout and the 2017-2019 In-Colors.

I started off with a standard cardstock panel and layered over it a pattern from the 2017-2019 Designer Series Paper.

I then cut two strips of ribbon from a coordinating color of Mini Ruffled Ribbon.

Next I adhered down a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I used the Foliage Frame Dies to cut out the larger floral frame and more leaves to adhere over it from other coordinating colors.

I then used the Layering Circles Dies to cut out a Whisper White circle and I stamped the sentiment from the Floral Frames Stamp Set in a coordinating color.

Lastly, I took a 2017-2019 In-Color Button and tied a Whisper White Baker’s Twine bow through it.

And there you have it!  A tribute to the beautiful colors that will be leaving us, as well as the beloved Floral Frames Bundle.

All the product in the 2017-2019 In-Colors will be retiring, so be sure to stock up while they’re available because once they’re gone, they’re gone for good.
Sniff…Sniff…


Today’s cards were inspired by this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

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

I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the floral image from the Forever Lovely Stamp Set on it.  I inked up the stamp set using daubers – the flowers in Calypso Coral and the petals in Call Me Clover.

I then matted this on Whisper White cardstock and adhered it to the card front.

Next I stamped the sentiment from the Detailed With Love Stamp Set in Versamark ink on Call Me Clover cardstock.  I sprinkled it with white embossing powder and heat set it.  I stamped the leaves to the side of the sentiment in Call Me Clover ink.

Lastly I added a few Pineapple Punch enamel shapes next to the leaves.

OnStage was amazing this weekend!

If you missed it, you’re definitely going to want to check out yesterday’s blog post filled with tons of sneak peeks of the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.

For today’s card I’m using the BRAND NEW Free As a Bird Stamp Set, which is part of the Bird Ballad Suite which I LOVE!!!  It will be available beginning June 4th!

My card starts off with Old Olive cardstock.  I then used the leaf image and stamped it in the corners in Old Olive ink.

I then cut two banners, one from a Crumb Cake pattern from the Subtles Designer Series Paper and the other from Calypso Coral cardstock.

Next I stamped the bird and leaf images from the Free As A Bird Stamp Set in Memento Black ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock that was cut out using the Stitched Rectangles Dies.  I used Crumb Cake, Calypso Coral, and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers to color it in.

I stamped the sentiment in Calypso Coral ink and added a few Pearls around the images.

Enjoy!

Be sure to grab this stamp set on June 4th when it goes live for customers to order!!  In the meantime – make sure you reserve a 2019-2020 Annual Catalog from me today (link below).
