Fall Frenzy Blog Hop

This month’s Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop theme is Fall Frenzy.

I love fall, it’s in fact my favorite season, so I was excited for the theme!

My card starts off with Very Vanilla cardstock which I layered with a pattern from the NEW (to the 2017 Holiday Catalog) Painted Autumn DSP.

Next I cut out the letters “Fall” from Tangerine Tango cardstock using the Large Letters Framelits.  I adhered them to a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock and matted it on Tangerine Tango cardstock.  Underneath it I wound some Burlap Ribbon around the card front and tied a bow using Linen Thread.

Next I used the Bike Ride Bundle to create a few images around the card.  Here in Upstate New York, fall means back to school, apple picking, and bright sunflowers.  I couldn’t decide which one I wanted to focus on, so I used all three!  I stamped the images in Memento Black and then used Real Red and Old Olive inks for the apples, Crushed Curry and Old Olive inks for the sunflowers, and Tangerine Tango and Crumb Cake inks for the books.  I stamped the “Hello” from the Sunshine Sayings stamp set.

Enjoy!

SNEAK PEEK Painted Autumn Stamp Set

I am so excited to introduce a few NEW products from this year’s Holiday Catalog!!

The Holiday Catalog is available to order from starting September 1st.  If you’d like to receive a catalog, let me know and I’d be happy to mail you one – stampinjaimie@gmail.com

My card today starts off with Early Espresso cardstock.  I then took a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock and used the NEW Painted Autumn Bundle to create my scene.  I first stamped the sunflower in Daffodil Delight ink and then the more detailed image in Crushed Curry ink.  I stamped the center part in Early Espresso ink.

I created my sentiment using the Labels to Love stamp set which coordinates with the NEW Everyday Label Punch.  I stamped the “Give Thanks” in Early Espresso ink on Crushed Curry cardstock and punched it out.  I cut out another label in Early Espresso cardstock, cut it in half, and slightly layered it behind the Crushed Curry.

I wound around some Crushed Curry Baker’s Twine before adhering the sentiment with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I stamped the leaf three times in Garden Green ink (stamping off the less detailed image first) and cut it out with the Leaf Punch which comes in the Painted Autumn Bundle (saving you 10%).  Lastly, I matted the Very Vanilla cardstock on Garden Green cardstock and added a few enamel circles to finish it off.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper

Today’s card starts off with Old Olive cardstock.  I took a pattern from the Delightful Daisy DSP and matted it on Whisper White cardstock and adhered it to the card.

I then took another pattern, cut it at 2′, and used the Triple Banner Punch to cut the end.  I took a 1-1/2″ strip of Whisper White cardstock and cut the end of that.  Lastly I cut a 1″ strip of Daffodil Delight cardstock and cut the end of that.  On the Whisper White banner I stamped the sentiment from the Sunshine Sayings stamp set in Old Olive ink.

I wound around some Old Olive Chevron Ribbon and then tied a Linen Thread bow around it and around a piece of Burlap Ribbon.

Enjoy!

Today’s card was inspired by this week’s challenge at Global Design Project.

Christmas in July – Watts of Occasions

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

My card today starts off with Whisper White cardstock which I layered with a pattern from the Be Merry Designer Series Paper.

I took a panel of Garden Green cardstock and embossed it using the Holly embossing folder and then matted it on Whisper White cardstock.

I took another panel of Whisper White cardstock and using the Watts of Occasions stamp set created my design.  I stamped the sentiment and light bulb in Archival Black ink. and used the Garden Green marker to color in the tree in the light bulb.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Celebration Time Birthday

Today’s card is inspired by this week’s Sunday Stamps challenge.

My card starts off with Fresh Fig cardstock.  About midway down the card, I wound around a piece of Gold Thread.

I took a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock and used the Celebration Time stamp set to create the banner.  I stamped it in Versamark ink, sprinkled it with Gold Embossing Powder, and heat embossed it.  I then stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set in Fresh Fig ink on Very Vanilla cardstock.  When I cut it out using the Celebration Thinlits, I put a piece of Gold cardstock behind it.  I snipped off the top and bottom of the cake and adhered them over the Very Vanilla cut out image.

I made a bow using the Celebration Thinlits and Gold cardstock and added a few Gold Enamel Dots.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Happy Birthday

Today’s card was inspired by the tic-tac-toe challenge at The Paper Players this week.  I went straight across the top.

My card today starts off with Pear Pizzazz cardstock.  I then took a pattern from the A Whole Lot of Lovely DSP and matted it on Basic Black cardstock.  I took another pattern and cut a 2′ strip and the end in a banner.

I used the Stitched Framelits to create a background to the diecut Happy Birthday.  I cut circles out in Whisper White, Powder Pink, Pool Party, and Basic Black.  I used the Balloon Adventures stamp set to create the stamped sentiments on two of the circles.  I used the washi tape technique so as to be able to break up the sentiment.  I stamped the first part in Memento Black ink and the second one in Versamark ink which I sprinkled with White Embossing Powder and heat embossed.

I cut out two birthdays, one in Whisper White and one in Pear Pizzazz.  I cut off the “happy” part of it and layered one over the other.  I wrapped around some Pool Party Baker’s Twine to finish it off.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! – Daisy Delight – Thank You

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

Today’s card is a super easy CAS (clean and simple) card.  What’s great about it is it uses only a punch, some paper, and a few stamps – very minimal supplies and doesn’t need the Big Shot.

My card today starts off with Wisteria Wonder cardstock.  Using the Daisy Delight Bundle, I cut out three daises (each requiring three punches of cardstock), two using Daffodil Delight cardstock and one using Whisper White cardstock.  On the Whisper White petals, I used a sponge to ink up the edges in Daffodil Delight ink.  I stamped the center of the Daffodil Delight daisies in Craft White ink and the center of the Whisper White daisy in Daffodil Delight ink.

Before adhering the flowers, I stamped some leaves around where I knew they’d go in Wisteria Wonder ink.  I also wound around some Silver Thread behind the white daisy.

Lastly I stamped the sentiment from the Daisy Delight stamp set in Wisteria Wonder ink and added a few rhinestones around.

Enjoy!

Fabulous Flamingo Stampin’ Up!

My card today was inspired by three challenges this week, Hand Stamped Sentiments, Paper Craft Crew, and Stamp, Ink, Paper.

My card starts off with Tempting Turquoise cardstock.  I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and the Fabulous Flamingo stamp set to create my scene.  I stamped the water image in Soft Sky ink and Tempting Turquoise ink on the bottom and stamped the palm leaf image in Bermuda Bay and Lemon Lime Twist ink at the top.

Next I took a 3″x3″ square of Tempting Turquoise cardstock and embossed it using the Seaside embossing folder.

I stamped the solid flamingo image in Memento Black ink on Whisper White cardstock and fussy cut it out using Paper Snips.  Then I stamped the sentiment in Tempting Turquoise ink on Soft Sky cardstock.

Enjoy!

Yesterday I finally (after having set the goal months ago to do so) did my first Facebook Live Video making this card.

You can check it out here on my Facebook page.  Of course something was going to go wrong because it was my first one and I was, well, live, so just be aware that the camera is upside down for the first 5 minutes.  (Face in hand.)  Oh well.

In my video I switched around the sentiment to “Thanks.”  Here are the two cards below.

Coffee Café Watercolor Background

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

Today’s card starts off with Soft Sky cardstock.  I then took a panel of Watercolor Paper and used the Coffee Cafe stamp set to stamp the coffee image with lid (Soft Suede and Pear Pizzazz), coffee beans (Soft Suede), and hearts (Soft Sky) randomly over it.  I then used a Stampin’ Spritzer and sprayed water over it (not too close) multiple times until I got the look I wanted (not too much or it will just run).  I then matted it on Soft Suede cardstock and adhered it to the card.

Then I created my coffee mug using the Coffee Café Bundle.  I stamped the mug image in Memento Black ink on Pear Pizzazz cardstock and the Thanks A Latte image in Soft Sky ink on Very Vanilla cardstock.  I cut them out (and the other images) using the Coffee Cups framelits.  I wrapped some Linen Thread around it before adhering it over a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock matted on Soft Suede cardstock.

Using the super sharp Paper Snips, I cut out four images from the Coffee Break DSP and adhered them around the coffee mug.

Oh So Eclectic Stampin’ Up!

For my card today, I’m prepping for my August Make & Take party.  For my party, we’ll be making four cards using the Oh So Eclectic Bundle.  If you’re in the Upper New York area, I’d love to have you join me!!  Check out the details on my Facebook page here.

My card starts with Night of Navy cardstock.  I then took a pattern from the Naturally Eclectic DSP, matted it on Soft Sky cardstock, and adhered it to the card.

Next I took some Berry Burst Crinkled Ribbon and sort of folded it on itself and adhered it down.  I cut out one flower in Soft Sky cardstock and one in Peekaboo Peach cardstock using the Eclectic Layers Framelits and adhered it over the ribbon.

Lastly, I stamped the petal stamp from the Oh So Eclectic Stamp on Peekaboo Peach cardstock in Peekaboo Peach ink and then stamped the sentiment in Night of Navy over it and cut it out.

Enjoy!
