Stampin’ Up! New Baby Welcome Card

So far this week I’ve mailed out 3 cards to expecting mamas.

It’s so exciting to know a new little one is on the way.

My card today starts off with Very Vanilla cardstock.  I took a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock, embossed it using the Softly Falling Embossing Folder, and matted it on Blushing Bride cardstock.

Next I cut out two patterns from the Bundle of Love Designer Series Paper.  I cut the ends in banners and adhered them to the card.

I cut the heart using the Sunshine Wishes Framelits Dies and Gold Foil paper.  I tied a Soft Sky ribbon to the one side.

The sentiment is from Special Celebrations Stamp Set which I stamped in Versamark ink, sprinkled with Gold Embossing Powder, and heat set with the Heat Tool.  I cut it out with the Bunch of Banners Framelits dies and adhered it using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Lift Me Up – GDP#137

I loved the Lift Me Up Stamp Set from the very beginning.

You know me I love punny sentiments and I just think you can do so much with this set!

I used the Lift Me Up Stamp to create this bright and encouraging card featured on this past Wednesday’s Facebook Live Tutorial.

I do a tutorial every week at 7:30 pm EST.  If you watch live and leave a comment, I’ll draw a name at the end for someone to receive that night’s card.

Here’s this week’s tutorial:

Stampin’ Up! Colorful Seasons Card

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

My card starts off with Thick Whisper White cardstock, on which I adhered a pattern from the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper.

Using the Layering Squares Framelits I cut out a Whisper White square and a Night of Navy frame.  I used the Colorful Seasons Stamp Set to stamp the branch (Soft Suede) and flowers (Lovely Lipstick) over the Whisper White square.

Next I used the Seasonal Layers Dies to cut out a branch from Soft Suede cardstock.  I first stamped the flowers in Lovely Lipstick ink and cut them out using the same dies.  I adhered the flowers using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Lastly I stamped the sentiment in Night of Navy ink on a piece of Vellum cardstock.

Enjoy!

Be sure to play along and link up your card to the challenge!

It’s just about wedding season and I actually had a special request come in to make a wedding card.  This is what I made…

I then cut out a 2″ Silver banner and adhered over it a Marina Mist scalloped square which I cut out using the Layering Squares Framelits.  I stamped in Powder Pink ink and cut out the cake using the Cake Soiree Bundle.

I cut out a silver rose using the Sweet Cake Framelits.  Next to it I wound around some Silver Thread and placed a Silver Enamel dot over it.

Lastly I stamped the sentiment from the Flourishing Phrases Stamp Set in Versamark ink on Whisper White cardstock, sprinkled it with silver embossing powder, and heat embossed it.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Waterfront Sympathy Card

There’s so much going on right now between the new Annual Catalog and all the retiring products.

It can be hard to stay on top of everything that’s going on.  I send a weekly newsletter for this exact reason!

Head over here to get my weekly newsletter to make sure you’re not missing out on anything!

Today’s card starts off with Sahara Sand cardstock.  I then took a pattern from the Myths & Magic Designer Paper and matted it on Whisper White cardstock.  I wound around it a Crushed Curry Baker’s Twine bow and adhered it to the card front. 

I cut out an oval using the Stitched Shapes Framelits and used the Waterfront Stamp Set to stamp my scene on it Sahara Sand (mountains), Dapper Denim (stamped off for a lighter shade for the water), Crushed Curry (sun).

I stamped the sentiment from the Better Together Stamp Set in Crushed Curry ink and adhered it over the oval.  Lastly I added a few Crushed Curry enamel shapes.

Enjoy!

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

Stampin’ Up! Watts of Occasions Card

Every Wednesday night at 7:30 pm EST I do a Facebook Live Tutorial.  This week I used the Watts of Occasions Stamp Set to create this “punny” card.

I always love creating my own background and wanted to create a (mostly) black and white color pallet, highlighting the one “heart” light bulb in yellow.

If you catch the live video and leave a comment, at the end I draw a name for someone to receive that night’s card!  If you ever miss a video, I always post them to YouTube.

Normally I replicate the example exactly the same, but this time I added a few changes to it.  Which one do you prefer?!

Stampin’ Up! – Sunshine Wishes Thinlits Hope

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

My card is 90% Calypso Coral and Old Olive, but I did manage to sneak a bit of Daffodil Delight in it 🙂

My card starts off with Calypso Coral cardstock.  I then took a panel of Watercolor Paper, matted it on Daffodil Delight cardstock, and adhered it to the card.

Next I stamped the flower from the Picnic With You Stamp Set in Versamark ink on the Watercolor Paper.  I sprinkled it with white embossing powder and heat set it.

I then used an Aqua Painter and Old Olive and Calypso Coral inks to color around the flowers.  This is called the heat resist technique.

Next I cut out the “hope” from Tutti-Frutti cardstock using the Sunshine Wishes framelits.  Underneath it I cut out a vellum banner using the Bunch of Banners Thinlits and I also wound around some Silver Thread.

Lastly, I added a few Calypso Coral and Silver Enamel Shapes around.

Stampin’ Up! At Home With You Bundle

I had a special request come in to create a card for a “new home.”

I was told the colors were Sahara Sand and Pool Party and this is the card I created…

I started off with Thick Whisper White cardstock.  I then took a panel of Sahara Sand cardstock and used the Pattern Party Decorative Mask, Palette Knife, and White Embossing Paste to create a brick wall.  I matted this on Pool Party cardstock and adhered it to the card.

I then stamped the door from the At Home With You Stamp Set (currently retiring) in Memento Black ink on Whisper White cardstock and colored it in using the Pool Party Stampin’ Blend Markers.  I cut it out using the coordinating At Home Framelits Dies.

I thought it needed just a bit more color than the Sahara Sand and Pool Party so I stamped the wreath and flower pot in the same process, coloring them in with Old Olive, Calypso Coral, and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blend Markers.  I stamped the sentiment in Memento Black ink and adhered them down with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Just Keep Swimming

If you’re ever stuck as far as what colors to use on a card, pull out a pack of Designer Series Paper that you like and look on the back.

Stampin’ Up! always marks what colors are in that pack and you can bank on those colors working nicely together.  I took my inspiration for today’s card colors from the Coffee Break Designer Series Paper, which is retiring (and while supplies last).

My card starts off with Soft Sky cardstock which I embossed using the Seaside embossing folder.  I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock, matted it on Pear Pizzazz cardstock, and adhered it to the card.  I took a pattern from the Coffee Break DSP, matted it on Whisper White cardstock, and adhered it to the card.

I stamped the smallest jar from the Jar of Love Stamp Set in Memento Black ink on Whisper White cardstock and stamped the water image in Soft Sky ink (stamping off first) inside the jar.  I stamped the goldfish in our new Grapefruit Grove color and cut it out (and the jar) using the Everyday Jar Framelits.  I created my sentiment using the Labeler Alphabet Stamp Set.


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