Stampin’ Up! Tropical Chic You Are The Greatest Card

I sort of stumbled on the colors in today’s card.

I started off with the Pool Party and then layered under it the Grapefruit Grove and I have to say I LOVE these colors together.  They look so “yummy” together.

My card starts off with Grapefruit Grove cardstock.  I then took a pattern from the Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper, cut it at an angle, and matted it on Pool Party cardstock.

I stamped the sentiment from the Tropical Chic Stamp Set in Grapefruit Grove ink and then stamped the palm leaf in Pool Party ink over it (stamping off first).

I cut it out using the Layering Circles and a Pool Party scalloped circle for behind it.  I added a Grapefruit Grove bow next to it.

Enjoy!


Today’s card was inspired by this week’s Sunday Stamps 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! Timeless Tulips Mother’s Day Card

This month’s Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop theme is “Celebrate Spring.”

In Upstate New York the weekend of Mother’s Day every year we have a local Tulip Fest, so I had to use the Timeless Tulips for today’s card.

My card starts off with Daffodil Delight cardstock.  I then adhered over it a Daffodil Delight pattern from the Brights Designer Series Paper.

I then stamped the stem and leaves from the Timeless Tulips Stamp Set in Pear Pizzazz ink on Whisper White cardstock.  I cut it out using the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.  I applied Daffodil Delight ink to the tulip stamps using a Dauber, fussy cut them out, and adhered them down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I then stamped the sentiment from the Timeless Tulips Stamp Set in Pear Pizzazz ink and underneath it adhered a Daffodil Delight bow.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Good Morning Magnolia Hello Card

Hi everyone!

Today’s project uses the Good Morning Magnolia Bundle.  It was a favorite for so long and I realized this weekend that I haven’t picked it up in a while, but I quickly remembered why I loved it so much.

My favorite part – the script of the sentiment – so delicate and pretty.

My card starts off with Petal Pink cardstock.  I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and matted it on Soft Sea Foam cardstock.

I first stamped the leaves from the Good Morning Magnolia Stamp Set in Memento Black ink and the flower on a separate Whisper White piece.  I colored them in using Soft Sea Foam (leaves) and Petal Pink (flower) Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the flower out using the coordinating Magnolia Memory Dies and adhered it down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Good Morning Magnolia Stamp Set right below the flower in Memento Black ink.  Lastly I added a Linen Thread bow and a few champagne rhinestones.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Super Quick and Easy Peaceful Poppies Elements Cards

Kits are great.

They have great designs, cards come together super fast with them, and they’re great for new stampers, as well as long-time stampers.

For today’s cards, I used the Peaceful Poppies Elements to pull together super quick and easy cards, one a full size card and one using a note card.

Although it’s not a kit, it sort of works like a kit.  It has great images that can be used for any project!

The regular sized card uses Basic Black and Real Red cardstock, as well as a sentiment from the Colorful Seasons Stamp Set, stamped in Real Red ink.

I tied a bow in Poppy Parade twine and adhered the different images from the Peaceful Poppies Elements using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

For the smaller card, I used a note card.  The banner was slightly too big, so I cut out a portion of the middle.  Because the circle is bigger, you’d never know that it was cut.

I stamped the same sentiment, but this time added a few Peaceful Poppies Sequins.

I love how quick and easy these cards came together using the Peaceful Poppies Elements!

Enjoy!
