Stampin’ Up! You’re Inspiring

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

With Mother’s Day coming up, it’s time to make beautiful feminine cards!  I think daffodils and Mother’s Day go hand-in-hand.  They usually start popping around that time here in Upstate New York.

My card starts off with Daffodil Delight cardstock which I embossed using the Basket Weave Embossing Folder (carried over from Sale-a-bration – yay!).

I then took a piece of watercolor paper and stamped the daffodils from the You’re Inspiring Stamp Set on it in Archival Black ink.  I colored it in using an Aqua Painter and Daffodil Delight, Crushed Curry, and NEW Call Me Clover inks.  I matted it on Daffodil Delight cardstock and adhered it to the card front.

I cut out the lattice from Silver cardstock using the Petals & More Thinlits.  I stamped the sentiment in Call Me Clover ink on a banner of Whisper White cardstock and adhered it with dimensionals.  I then added a few Silver Enamel circles around the daffodil.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! – Mother’s Day – Petal Palette

This month’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop’s theme is “Feminine.”

I figured with Mother’s Day sort of around the corner, I would take advantage and make a card for the occasion.

My card today starts off with Pink Pirouette cardstock.  I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and matted it on Rich Razzlebery cardstock and adhered it to the card.  Then I took a long pattern from the Tutti-Frutti DSP and adhered it over everything.

I stamped the flower from the Petal Palette Stamp Set in Memento Black ink.  I then used Pink Pirouette, Rich Razzleberry, and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers to color them in.  I cut it out using the coordinating Petals & More Thinlits.  I used the largest circle from the Stitched Shapes Framelits to cut out a stitched circle and then the next smallest circle to cut a hole out of it.  I adhered this first and then the flowers over using Stampin’ Dimensionlas.

I stamped the sentiment from the You’re Inspiring Stamp Set (using the Washi Tape Technique to cover part of the sentiment) in Rich Razzleberry ink.  I adhered this down with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Finally, I added some pearls and a Rich Razzleberry and Pink Pirouette heart around everything.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Blossoming Basket

Today’s card comes from my Wednesday Facebook Live Tutorial video.

I wanted to try something new and had the viewers make the card.  It was a “This or That” card.

If you catch it live and leave a comment, I draw a name at the end for someone to win that night’s card!  If you miss a night, you can always check out my videos on YouTube.

Lift Me Up – Father’s Day Card

My card today starts off with Pacific Point cardstock.  I took another panel of Pacific Point cardstock and dry embossed it using the Hexagon TIEF.  I took the brayer and Crumb Cake ink and lightly brushed over the top of the embossed paper, going over certain areas more than others so it was an uneven look.  I matted it on Basic Black cardstock and adhered it to the card.

Next I created a 2″ banner of Crumb Cake cardstock and using the same brayer with Crumb Cake ink on it, brushed around the edges of it.  I stamped the hot air balloon image from the Lift Me Up stamp set in Archival Black on Crumb Cake cardstock.  I cut it out using the Up & Away thinlits and highlighted the outside again using the brayer.

I cut out another smaller hot air balloon in Basic Black cardstock using the Up & Away thinlits and adhered the balloons to the card.  I stamped in Pacific Point ink the sentiment from the Thoughtful Banners stamp set and inked the edges again using the brayer.

Enjoy!

Mother’s Day – Thoughtful Banners

My card today is a simple but pretty Mother’s Day card.

It starts off with Perfect Plum cardstock layered with a panel of Whisper White cardstock.

Using the Number of Years stamp set, I stamped the leaves and stems stamp in Emerald Envy and the flowers in Melon Mambo, Pool Party, and Perfect Plum ink.

For my sentiment, I used the Thoughtful Banners stamp set and Perfect Plum ink and then I added a Perfect Plum enamel heart to finish it off.

Enjoy!

Happy Father’s Day

This month’s theme for the Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop is “Masculine Projects.”  Enjoy hopping around to see what everyone created.

My masculine card today is a monochromatic Father’s Day Card.  It starts off with Dapper Denim cardstock.  I then cut strips of Night of Navy, Dapper Denim, and Island Indigo cardstock and adhered them over a panel of Whisper White cardstock.

I used the Lift Me Up Bundle to cut out a few clouds in Whisper White cardstock and also cut out the smallest hot air balloon in Night of Navy cardstock.  I dabbed Night of Navy, Dapper Denim, and Island Indigo ink with a baby wipe over the larger of the two hot air balloons, cut it out, and adhered it to the card.  I covered the “Congratulations” part of the sentiment with some Washi Tape and inked it up with Night of Navy ink.  I removed the washi tape and stamped the sentiment on Whisper White cardstock.

Lastly, I created the “Happy Father’s Day” using the Thoughtful Banners Bundle and Island Indigo ink.

Enjoy!

Happy Mother’s Day

Today’s card starts off with Sweet Sugarplum cardstock.  Using the Layering Circles Framelits I cut out a circle from just regular printing paper.  I placed the printing paper (with the circle cut from it) over a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock and inked up the Hardwood stamp set in Sahara Sand ink and stamped over it.  Once I removed the printing paper, I was left with the Hardwood stamp image in a circle shape on my cardstock.

I matted this on some Pink Pirouette cardstock and then adhered them to the card.

Next using the Flourish Thinlits I cut out two leaves (Mint Macaron cardstock) and one flower (Pink Pirouette) cardstock and adhered them over the stamped Hardwood image.  I added a Pink Pirouette enamel circle to the center of my flower.

My sentiment comes from the Oh So Succulent stamp set which I stamped in Sahara Sand ink on Very Vanilla cardstock.  I layered underneath it a small banner of Pink Pirouette cardstock and some Very Vanilla ribbon.

Enjoy!

Today’s card was inspired by challenges at Stamp, Ink, Paper and The Paper Players.

Happy Father’s Day

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

For my card today, I wanted to make a Father’s Day card.  The Nailed It stamp set is perfect for any masculine card and especially Father’s Day and sad to say, it’s retiring.

My card starts off with Basic Black as its base.  I took a pattern from the Urban Underground DSP and adhered it to the bottom of my card.  For the top of the card, I stamped the tool images from the Nailed It Stamp Set in Delightful Dijon all around.

I then fussy cut the triangle-shaped pattern paper from the Urban Underground DSP to cover the seam between the cardstock and DSP.

Lastly I stamped the sentiment and cut it out using the trimmer.  I adhered it on a Basic Black square and added some Urban Underground embellishments.

Enjoy!

Daisies – FMS 284

So I’ve been seeing all the incredibly cute and adorable cards demos who attended OnStage are making (of which I did not attend) using the Delightful Daisy Bundle and, well, truth be known, it’s hard because I love daisies.  They’re so happy and cheerful.  Mine bloom in July and are a sign of summer and fun.  My mom always had daisies in her garden growing up and even transplanted some of hers to my current garden.

Then I remembered I thought I had seen “daily-like” die cuts in the Oh So Succulent Bundle and sure enough – I was right!

Yea – I have daisies on my card today!!

What’s great about this card is that it’s CAS (clean and simple) AND uses only a handful of items.  My card starts off with Calypso Coral cardstock.  I took a 2-1/4″ strip of a pattern from the Succulent Gardens DSP and matted it on Whisper White cardstock and adhered it to the center of the card.

Next I created my daisies using the three sized framelits in the Succulents Framelits.  I cut two out of each sized and then placed a Daffodil Delight enamel circle in the middle of them.  The largest daisy I adhered using a Stampin’ Dimensional.

Lastly, I stamped the sentiment from the Oh So Succulent Stamp Set in Crushed Curry on a Whisper White panel and placed a Daffodil Delight enamel heart to the right of it.

Enjoy!

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