Stampin’ Up! Badges & Banners

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

My card starts off with Thick Whisper White cardstock.  I took a pattern from the Fresh Florals DSP and adhered it on the card

I took a banner of Watercolor Paper and stamped the birdcage image from the Badges & Banners stamp set in Versamark ink.  I sprinkled it with white embossing powder and heat embossed it.  I then took an Aqua Painter and wet the paper and added Berry Burst ink to it.  In order to dry it faster, I used the Heat Tool to dry the paper which made the ink run, which I actually really liked.

I stamped the sentiment in Versamark ink on Berry Burst cardstock, sprinkled it with white embossing powder, and set it with the heat tool.  I used the Duet Banner punch to cut it out.  Lastly, I matted the banner on a bigger Berry Burst banner.

Enjoy!

Cool Treats Blue Goo Card

Today’s Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop is a sketch challenge.  Happy hopping.

Today’s card is one that I made for my son’s 9th birthday this past Tuesday.  When we get soft ice cream in the summer, he always gets blue goo ice cream so I thought I’d create it on his card.

My card starts off with Pacific Point cardstock.  I then took a panel of Sahara Sand and a smaller panel of Whisper White cardstock and lined them up to each other.  To make sure they stayed in place, I adhered a small piece of cardstock overlapping them.  I then dry embossed them using the new Oh My Stars embossing folder.  I removed the cardstock that was holding them together and adhered the embossed cardstock to the card.

I created my ice cream using the Cool Treats stamp set and matching Frozen Treats framelits.  I stamped just the swirl on some Whisper White cardstock for the ice cream in Pacific Point ink and used Sahara Sand cardstock for the cone.  I then cut out a Pacific Point circle using the Layering Circles Framelits to adhere my ice cream to.

Before adhering the circle to the card, I adhered a small rectangle of Pacific Point cardstock on the Sahara Sand embossed cardstock.  I stamped my sentiment in Pacific Point ink and adhered it using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Stylized Birthday

Today’s blog hop is a color challenge.  Happy hopping!

My card today starts off with Rich Razzleberry cardstock.  I then took the two presents from the Weather Together stamp set and stamped them across a panel of Whisper White cardstock in Old Olive, Rich Razzleberry, and Pool Party ink.

Next I cut out three squares using the Stitched Framelits.  On the largest one, Pool Party, I stamped in Versamark the Happy Birthday from the Stylized Birthday stamp.  I sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder and heat embossed it.

Lastly, I stamped two more presents (Pool Party, Old Olive) on a separate piece of Whisper White and fussy cut them out.  I adhered the one with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

NEW Fresh Florals DSP

Today’s card was inspired by this week’s challenge over at The Paper Players.

My card today features the NEW Powder Pink In-Color.  It starts off with Powder Pink cardstock as its base.  I took two patterns from the Fresh Florals DSP and matted them on Whisper White cardstock and layered them on my card.

I used the Swirly Bird Bundle to punch out the Sahara Sand cutout “swirl.”  I stamped the bird, eggs, and nest using Sahara Sand, Smoky Slate, and Soft Sky ink.

I stamped the sentiment in Sahara Sand ink from the Better Together stamp set and matted it on Powder Pink cardstock.

Enjoy!

Seasonal Bells – Wedding Card

Today’s card was inspired by the sketch challenge this week at Fab Friday:

Normally when I make a wedding card, I like to make it in the colors of the wedding.  However, with wedding season upon us, I thought it’d be a good idea to have a general wedding card ready to go.

My card today starts off with Basic Black cardstock.  I took a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock and matted it on Smoky Slate cardstock and adhered it to the card.  Over that I adhered a banner of Silver Foil cardstock and a panel of Basic Gray cardstock.

I then cut out a circle of Smoky Slate cardstock using the Layering Circles Framelits and stamped the sentiment in Basic Gray ink using the Seasonal Bells stamp set at the bottom.

I stamped the bells from the Seasonal Bells Bundle in Versamark ink and heat embossed them using the Heat Tool and silver embossing powder.  I cut them out using the Bell Punch.  After adhering them to the card, I then wound around some Silver Thread and adhered a Silver Enamel Circle over it.

Enjoy!

Thank You Card with NEW In-Colors

As you might’ve read in an earlier post, I was in Peru this past week with my husband and two other couples.  We were there scouting out the possibility of bringing a missions team from our church.

My husband is from Peru and we lived there for a little over three years (pre-kids) doing work with a local church.  I always love going back.  It’s refreshing and always brings me peace.

I didn’t take many pictures, but here are a few…

On our way, readying ourselves for a 10 hr travel time.

The ministry we were going down to meet is called Hearts in Action and they’re doing a fabulous work in a poor area called Cieneguilla.

 

Cieneguille is a county which by definition is poor, but even within itself the level of poverty varies. Some towns had running water and electricity. Other homes were just little shacks barely held together.

 

The main plaza cathedral in Lima, Peru.

The cathedral holds a tomb with the great conquistador Pizarro’s remains.

The coast of Lima Peru.  What you don’t see is that although it is right on the coast, Lima is desert land.  This is because of a cold current of water flowing from the Artic.

Peru is known for its culinary cuisine.  There is nothing like it in the world!  For lunch, I had Choros a la Chalaca – hmmmm!!!

Blurry, but you get the idea.  Traffic is horrific and drivers make NYC taxi drivers look like amateurs.

Lastly, a little shopping for some souvenirs for friends and family.

Now on to my card (and yes, it ties into my travels).

While we were away my parents held down the fort with our three children (10, 9, 7).  My parents help us out time and time again and the least I can do is send a thank you card…

My card today starts with the NEW Tranquil Tide cardstock.  I took regular copy paper and cut out a square using the Layering Square Framelits.  I placed the copy paper with the square cut out of it over a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I then took the Brayer and rolled over the square hole in Lemon Lime Twist ink.  I matted it on some Pool Party cardstock and adhered it to the card.

I used the One Big Meaning stamp set and stamped the sentiment in Tranquil Tide ink in the box.  I took the Flourishing Phrases stamp set and stamped the leaves in the bottom left hand corner in Tranquil Tide ink.

I stamped the flower (from the Flourishing Phrases stamp set) in Pool Party ink, fussy cut it out, and adhered it using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Rhinestones in the opposite corner.

Enjoy!

Today’s card was inspired by the challenges over at Freshly Made Sketches and Sunday Stamps.

Banners For You – Happy Anniversary

Today’s card was inspired by the challenge this week at The Paper Players.

My card today starts off with Tempting Turquoise as its base color.

I took the Banners For You stamp set and stamped some leaves (Pear Pizzazz) and flowers (Real Red and Tangerine Tango) on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I matted it on some Tangerine Tango cardstock and adhered it to the card.

I stamped the banner in Tempting Turquoise and the sentiment in Tangerine Tango and cut it out using the coordinating Bunch of Banners framelits.  I adhered the banner using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!

Celebrate Good Times

Today’s card was inspired by the challenge this week at Fab Friday.

My card today starts with Rich Razzleberry cardstock.  I took some Dapper Denim Ruched Ribbon and wrapped around it a few times.

I took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and used the Celebrations Duo embossing folder to make the “celebrate” impression in it.  I then used Calypso Coral, Dapper Denim, and Rich Razzleberry ink to stamp circles around the “celebrate.”

I stamped the “Good Times” from the Happy Celebrations stamp set in Dapper Denim ink and then matted the Whisper White on Dapper Denim cardstock.

Enjoy!

Happy Birthday – Two Ways

This past week we celebrated both my husband’s birthday and mom’s birthday, which happen to fall the same day.

For their birthdays I thought I’d create one birthday card and make it two ways, one feminine and one masculine (or neutral).

Here are the two birthday cards:

For my mom’s card, I used Emerald Envy as the base.  I specifically picked this color because Emerald is the birthstone in May.  I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped flowers in two corners.  I used the Penned & Painted stamp set and Watermelon Wonder (full strength and stamped off for lighter color) and Mint Macaron (full strength and stamped off for lighter color).

Next I used the Large Letters framelits to cut out the “B-Day” in Watermelon Wonder cardstock.  I straightened out the “Happy” from the Banners for You stamp set and stamped it in Emerald Envy ink.  I added a few rhinestones to finish off the card.

For my husband’s card, I started out with Basic Gray cardstock.  I used the Balloon Adventures stamp set and Old Olive and Smoky Slate ink to stamp the balloons in either corner.

The “B-Day” was cut out using Old Olive cardstock this time and the “Happy” this time was stamped in Smoky Slate ink.

Enjoy!

Monochromatic Sunshine Card

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

Today’s card starts off with Crushed Curry cardstock.  Using an Aqua Painter, I picked up some So Saffron ink and painted over the center of a panel of Watercolor Paper and adhered it to the Crushed Curry.

Next I added some layering first using the Stitched Shapes Framelits and Delightful Dijon cardstock (the square).  Then I cut a panel of Daffodil Delight cardstock and dry embossed it using the Sparkle embossing folder.  For the next layer I used the Archival Black ink and stamped the sun stamp from the Day at the Beach stamp set on some watercolor paper and cut it out using the Stitched Shapes Framelits.  I colored it in using Delightful Dijon ink and the Aqua Painter.

Lastly I stamped the “Sending” from the Sunshine Sayings Bundle in Archival Black ink and then cut out the “sunshine” from So Saffron cardstock using the cutout from the bundle.
