Stampin’ Up! Birds & Branches Thinking of You Card

Hi everyone (still from Peru)!!

Hope everyone is staying well and healthy!!

Today’s card starts off with Crumb Cake cardstock, on which I adhered a pattern from the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper.

I then cut out a circle from Pool Party cardstock using the Layering Circles Dies and then embossed it using the Subtle Embossing Folder.

I used the Birds & More Dies to cut out a bird from Bumblebee cardstock and branch from Soft Suede cardstock.

I stamped the sentiment from the Art Gallery Stamp Set and cut it out with the coordinating Floral Gallery Dies (both available Jan 5th). I added a Linen Thread bow next to the sentiment.

Thanks for checking out my project today!

Stampin’ Up! In the Pines Thinking of You Card

This week’s Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop theme is “leaves or trees.”  Have fun hopping!

My card starts off with Soft Sea Foam cardstock.

I took a pattern from the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper and matted it on Crumb Cake cardstock.

I’ve been using the In Good Taste DSP a lot lately – it’s an absolute must!!!

I used the Pine Woods Dies to cut out trees from Just Jade and Mint Macaron cardstock.

I stamped the sentiment from the In The Pines Stamp Set in Just Jade ink and cut it out using the Painted Labels Dies, adhering it down with Stampin’ Up! Dimensionals.

Lastly, I wound around some Whisper White ribbon, securing it with a Linen Thread bow.

Stampin’ Up! Prized Peony Thinking of You Card

I am really enjoying the Stitched Triangles Dies.

I shared this card last week and wanted to pull them out again for today’s card.

My card starts off with Thick Whisper White cardstock.  I then cut out two triangles from the Flowers for Every Season Designer Series Paper, which I adhered down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the two peonies and leaves from the Prized Peony Stamp Set in Basic Gray ink.  I colored them in using the Daffodil Delight and Mango Melody (flowers) and Shaded Spruce (leaves) Stampin’ Blends Markers.

Under the peonies I adhered two gold leaves and adhered the flowers down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Around them I added some Pearls and Bumblebee Enamel Dots.

I stamped the sentiment from the brand new In The Pines Stamp Set in Bumblebee Ink and cut it out using Stitched Rectangles Dies.

The In The Pines Stamp Set is brand new to the Aug-Dec Mini Catalog and available beginning Aug 4th!!

Thanks for checking out my project today!


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

Stampin’ Up! My Meadow Thinking of You Card

Today’s card is very personal for me.

It’s created with my grandparents in mind, and which I’ll be sending to my Grandma.

It reminds me of them because my grandparents had a gazebo on the side of their house.  My Grandpa always loved his purple irises (which my Grandma hated) and there was always this playful banter back and forth about them.

My card starts off with Thick Whisper White cardstock.

I  put a panel of Whisper White cardstock (4-1/2×5-1/2″) about 1/4 of the way into the Brick & Mortar Embossing Folder.  When I put it through the die cutting machine, I didn’t wind it all the way through.  I then took a piece of sponge and Gray Granite ink and very lighthandedly wiped the embossed bricks to add some color.

Underneath the bricks I stamped the sentiment from the Colorful Seasons Stamp Set in Highland Heather ink.

Next I used the My Meadow Stamp Set to create my scene using Gray Granite (gazebo), Old Olive (grass, leaves, stems), Soft Suede (tree trunk), and Highland Heather (flowers) ink.  I used the Stitched Shapes Dies to cut it out.

I used the Layering Circles Dies to cut out a Purple Posy circle and Highland Heather scalloped circle to layer underneath the scene.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Lilypad Lake Thinking of You Card

I love simple cards.
They’re probably my go-to.

And as much as I love a decked out card, simple is still my first love.

My card today starts off with Flirty Flamingo cardstock.  I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and used a sponge dauber to add a hint of Flirty Flamingo ink as a background.  I then matted this on another panel of Flirty Flamingo cardstock.

I stamped the bird and lily pad from the Lilypad Lake Stamp Set in Memento Black ink on Whisper White cardstock.  I colored them in using Flirty Flamingo (lilies), Light Lovely Lipstick (lilies), Granny Apple Green (lily pad), Pineapple Punch (bird) Stampin’ Blends Markers.

Next I stamped the sentiment from the Lovely Lilypad Stamp Set in Lovely Lipstick ink and cut it out with the coordinating Lakeside Lily Dies.  I covered part of the sentiment with washi tape, inked it up, removed the tape, and stamped it down.  That way only the “thinking of you” gets stamped.

Enjoy!!

Today’s card is part of our newest challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments.  It’s a great, colorful one with great inspiring images.  Be sure to play along with us this week!

Stampin’ Up! Colorful Seasons HSS 331 Card

I really stretched myself for today’s card.

I have to admit it’s not one I would normally make.
But I was really inspired by one of the pictures in the new Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge (the upper left corner).

This is a fun winter challenge, so be sure to play along!

My card starts off with Night of Navy cardstock.

I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and used a brayer to color over it.  I used Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo, Blueberry Bushel, and Night of Navy ink.  I then matted this on Whisper White cardstock.

Next I used the Seasonal Layers Dies and cut out snowflakes from Whisper White cardstock.  I stamped the sentiment from the Colorful Seasons Stamp Set in Melon Mambo ink and cut it out using the Stitched Rectangles Dies.  I added some rhinestones around to finish it off.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Quick and Easy Honey Bee Card

Happy Friday everyone!!

Today I have a quick and easy card for you.  I hope you like it!

My card today starts off with Basic Black cardstock.  I then cut a pattern from the Golden Honey Designer Series Paper.

This is beautiful specialty paper with gold detail in some of the patterns that is FREE with a qualifying purchase from Jan 3-March 31.  It is featured in the 2020 Sale-A-Bration catalog.

I used two Stitched Rectangle Dies to cut out a center from the DSP.  I adhered down the outer piece using Stampin’ Dimensionals on a panel of Whisper White cardstock and the inside piece with SNAIL.

I then stamped the sentiment from the Honey Bee Stamp Set (available Jan 3) in Versamark ink on Basic Black cardstock, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it.

Enjoy!


Today’s card was inspired by this week’s FabFriday Challenge.

Stampin’ Up! Good Morning Magnolia Fun Fold

I was so inspired by yesterday’s color challenge that I decided to make another card inspired by them.

You can see yesterday’s card here.

My card today starts off with Pool Party cardstock.  See picture below for measurements.

I then separately stamped the flower from the Good Morning Magnolia Stamp in Memento Black ink on Whisper White cardstock.  I colored it in using Daffodil Delight, Mango Melody, and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers and cut it out using the Magnolia Memory Dies.

I cut panels of Whisper White cardstock to adhere on the outside flap and inside panel of the card.

Before adhering the flower down, I stamped the other flower bud and leaves on two of the corners and colored them in the same way.  I then adhered the large cut out magnolia to the card front edge using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Lastly I stamped the sentiment in Daffodil Delight ink.

Enjoy!
