Stampin’ Up! Bloom By Bloom Card

Happy Friday everyone!!

I am constantly mailing out cards.  I keep my mailman pretty busy.

So when I receive one in the mail, it really makes my day!

My card today was inspired by a card that I received from one of my downlines, Karen.  I loved the overall design of it and decided to CASE it.  You can check out her blog here.

My card starts off with Call Me Clover cardstock.  I trimmed down the right side of the front flap of the card and adhered a pattern from the Happiness Blooms Designer Series Paper to the right inside of the card.

I used the Bloom By Bloom Stamp Set and stamped the flowers in Versamark ink over the Call Me Clover card front.

Next I took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the stem from the Bloom By Bloom Stamp Set in Call Me Clover ink and the petal in Petal Pink ink, matting this on Petal Pink cardstock.

I then stamped the sentiment from the Flourishing Phrases Stamp Set in the bottom corner.

What I love about this card is when you open the card front, the beautiful floral pattern of Happiness Blooms DSP is still there.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Beach Happy Card

This week’s Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop is a combined hop with the Happy Stampers Blog Hop.  Happy hopping!!

 

 

 

My card starts off with Flirty Flamingo cardstock which I embossed using the Seaside Embossing Folder.

Next I took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and used the Beach Happy Stamp Set to create my scene.  I stamped the outline of the chair, umbrella, and palm tree trunks in Memento Black ink.

You’ll notice that the palm tree trunk is shaped to go one way.  But because it’s a photopolymer stamp, you can just maneuver it on your block to bend any which way, like I did today.

I stamped the umbrella in Mango Melody and the chair in Flirty Flamingo ink.  I stamped the sand in Crumb Cake ink (stamping off first).

I stamped the palm branches in Old Olive ink.  I stamped the one on a separate piece of Whisper White cardstock, fussy cut it out, and adhered it using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I then snuck a piece of Vellum cardstock underneath the Whisper White and stamped the sentiment in Memento Black ink on Crumb Cake cardstock, adhering it down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Let It Ride Watercolor Card

Happy Monday everyone!

I’ve always said watercoloring is not really “my thing.”
However, my daughter is obsessed with horses and I knew I NEEDED the Let It Ride Stamp Set.

So I opened up the Occasions Catalog and really tried to follow how Stampin’ Up! colored their horse.

My card starts off with Mango Melody cardstock.  I took a panel of Crumb Cake cardstock and embossed it using the Pinewood Planks embossing folder and then matted it on Whisper White cardstock.

Next I stamped the horse from the Let It Ride Stamp Set in Stazon Black Ink on Watercolor Paper.

I used an Aqua Painter and Soft Suede, Pumpkin Pie, and Mango Melody inks to color in the horse.  I used Crumb Cake, Coastal Cabana, and Granny Apple Green ink to color in the grass.

I then stamped the sentiment from the Let It Ride Stamp Set in Versamark ink on a pattern from the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper.  I sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder and set it with the Heat Tool.  I adhered this down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Lasting Lily Card

Shout out to my 12-year-old daughter for being my photographer for today’s card!!

I woke up early yesterday to go to work and it was still dark out.  I realized by the time I got home it would be dark again so I texted her to photograph today’s card while there was still sunlight.

I think she did a fabulous job!!

My card today starts off with Balmy Blue cardstock (although you can’t see it).  I adhered over it a pattern from the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper.

Next I matted a panel of Whisper White cardstock on Balmy Blue cardstock.

Then I inked up the lilies from the Lasting Lily Stamp Set using a dauber and Balmy Blue ink.  With the Distinktive stamps (like this one), less ink is definitely better.  A dauber gives you more control as to how much ink is being put on.

I did the same thing this time with Old Olive ink for the leaves and stems.  I then fussy cut the lilies out.

Under the lilies I adhered a pattern from the Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper.  I stamped the sentiment from the Lasting Lily Stamp Set in Versamark ink on Balmy Blue Cardstock, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it, adhering it down using Stampin Dimensionals.

Finally I added an Old Olive Linen Thread bow around the one lily.

Enjoy!


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

Stampin’ Up! Incredible Like You Card

Happy New Year everyone!!!

Did you stay up to watch the ball drop last night?
My family and I did, but then went straight to bed.  New Year’s Eve is such a fun holiday.

I hope this year brings you lots of joy and laughter and, of course, lots of stamping and crafting!!!

My card today starts off with Lovely Lipstick cardstock which I embossed using the Sparkle embossing folder.

I then took a pattern from the 2018-2020 Designer Series Paper (the Pineapple Punch one), matted it on Whisper White cardstock, and adhered it to the card front.

Next I used the Incredible Like You stamp set (available Jan 3) and made a flower.  I stamped the inside in Pineapple Punch ink and then stamped the petal image multiple times all around it in Melon Mambo (stamping off for the lighter shade).  I fussy cut this out and adhered some Lovely Lipstick ribbon behind it.

Lastly, I stamped the sentiment in Lovely Lipstick ink, again, from the Incredible Like You stamp set.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! – Hearts Come Home Card

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

Today I decided to make a winter card.
Just because Christmas is over doesn’t mean winter cards are and the Hearts Come Home Stamp Set has such a cozy feel to it.

My card starts off with Blackberry Bliss cardstock.

Next I took a pattern from the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper.  I used the Hearts Come Home Stamp Set and stamped the sentiment in Versamark ink.  I sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder and heat set it.

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

Next I used the Hearts Come Home Stamp Set and stamped the houses in Blackberry Bliss, trees in Pear Pizzazz (stamping off for some), and Gray Granite for the smoke.  I matted this on Gray Granite cardstock and adhered it just below the sentiment.

Enjoy!
