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!


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

Stampin’ Up! Under My Umbrella Video Tutorial

A couple of weeks ago I created this card using the Under My Umbrella and it was definitely one of my all time favorites to make.

So for my live tutorial last week, I decided to take inspiration from it and create a version of it.

It uses the same colors and the Under My Umbrella Bundle, but arranges the images differently and adds more flowers.

I’ll be back tonight at 7:30 pm EST for another live tutorial.  I hope you’ll join me.  If you catch it live and leave a comment, you may just receive the card for free!

If you ever miss a tutorial, you can check them out on my YouTube channel.

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! 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!
