Stampin’ Up! Stitched All Around Birthday Card

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

Tomorrow is my baby girl’s birthday.  She’s turning 9!

I always decorate the house with balloons and streamers the night before while they’re sleeping so they wake up to it.  I always do it in “their colors” and make a coordinating card.

Well, this year my daughter has announced she likes black and purple.

Be sure to head over and like my Facebook page as I’ll post pictures tomorrow of the decorations.

My card for her 9th birthday starts off with Highland Heather cardstock.  I then took a panel of Gorgeous Grape cardstock and embossed it with the Dot To Dot embossing folder.  I matted it on Basic Black cardstock.

Next I used the Stitched All Around Bundle to cut out the beautifully stitched die cut from Whisper White cardstock and stamped the sentiment in Gorgeous Grape ink.

I wound some Black Trim behind the sentiment and adhered everything down using Stampin Dimensionals.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! CAS Birthday Card

Happy New Year’s Eve everyone!!!

I hope 2019 brings you lots of fun memories and love and, of course, lots of stamping.
Be safe tonight!

My card today is a super simple birthday card.  The best part of the Occasions Catalog is that it easily coordinates with product from the Annual Catalog.

My card starts off with Basic Black cardstock.  I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and matted it on Lemon Lime Twist cardstock.

Next I took two patterns from the Broadway Bound Designer Series Paper and matted the one on Melon Mambo cardstock and the other on Basic Black cardstock.

I stamped the sentiment from the Amazing Life Stamp Set (available Jan 3) in Versamark ink on Melon Mambo cardstock, sprinkled it with Black Embossing Powder, and heat set it.  I fussy cut out the cupcake and adhered it with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!


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

Stampin’ Up! – Hearts Come Home Card

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

Today I decided to make a winter card.
Just because Christmas is over doesn’t mean winter cards are and the Hearts Come Home Stamp Set has such a cozy feel to it.

My card starts off with Blackberry Bliss cardstock.

Next I took a pattern from the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper.  I used the Hearts Come Home Stamp Set and stamped the sentiment in Versamark ink.  I sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder and heat set it.

I then matted this on Whisper White cardstock and adhered it to the card front.

Next I used the Hearts Come Home Stamp Set and stamped the houses in Blackberry Bliss, trees in Pear Pizzazz (stamping off for some), and Gray Granite for the smoke.  I matted this on Gray Granite cardstock and adhered it just below the sentiment.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! First Frost Best Wishes

Getting time to stamp is very important to me.
It’s a stress reliever and also a way to have some “me time.”

So when life gets super busy especially a week out from Christmas, it can be challenging for anyone to find time to stamp.

So in order to get stamping time, I keep cards and projects a little on the simpler side…

My card today starts off with Crumb Cake cardstock which I embossed using the Pinewood Planks embossing folder.

Next I took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the image from the First Frost stamp set in Soft Sea Foam ink and then matted it on Soft Sea Foam cardstock.

Lastly I stamped the sentiment from the Petal Palette stamp set in Versamark ink on Basic Black cardstock, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it.

Enjoy and I hope you find time to stamp today, even if it’s a super simple something.   🙂

Stampin’ Up! Stitched All Around Card

This week’s Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop is a color sketched.  For the color of choice I used Petal Pink.  Happy hopping!

My card today starts off with Petal Pink cardstock which I embossed using the Tin Tile Embossing Folder.

Next I put a panel of Gold Foil to the left of the card and added two Petal Pink sequins over it.

Next I stamped the sentiment from the Stitched All Around Stamp Set in Versamark ink, sprinkled it with Gold Embossing Powder, and heat set it.  I cut it out using the gorgeous Stitched Labels Framelits.

Under the sentiment I adhered a piece of Whisper White Tulle Ribbon and Gold Cord.  The Petal Pink/Whisper White Baker’s Twine came from the Petal Pink/Silver Baker’s Twine and I just pulled out the Silver thread.  I adhered the frame down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Blog Hop

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

I decided to make a card celebrating friendship during the holidays.

My card starts off with Mossy Meadow cardstock.  I then took a panel of Cherry Cobbler cardstock and stamped the Buffalo Check Stamp Set in Memento Black ink over it.  I then matted it on Whisper White cardstock.

Next I used the Foliage Frame Framelits to cut out a frame (Soft Suede) and other floral details to go behind it (Mossy Meadow, Shaded Spruce, Pool Party).  I also added some Burlap Ribbon behind it all.

Next I cut out a circle using the Layering Circle Framelits from Whisper White cardstock.  I stamped the sentiment from the Winter Woods Stamp Set in Mossy Meadow ink and the pinecone in Soft Suede ink (stamping off twice first).

Lastly, I added a Cherry Cobbler bow to finish it off and adhered everything down with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Floral Frames – Best Wishes

Happy Friday everyone!

Any fun plans this weekend?!

I’m in Orlando right now for Stampin’ Up!s OnStage with a whole slew of other demonstrators.  Head over to my Facebook page to check out pictures of our travels and some sneak peeks of things to come.

For today’s card I started  off with Night of Navy cardstock.  I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock, embossed it using the Subtle Embossing Folder, and matted it on Soft Sea Foam cardstock.

Next I adhered down a pattern from the Twinkle, Twinkle Designer Series Paper.

Next I used the Foliage Frames Thinlits to cut out a floral frame from Night of Navy cardstock.  I cut out a few different leaves using the same thinlits and Silver Foil, Petal Pink, and Soft Sea Foam cardstock to adhere behind the Night of Navy frame.

Lastly I stamped the sentiment in Petal Pink ink and cut it out using the Layering Circles Framelits.

Enjoy!

I then cut out three patterns from the Best Route Designer Series Paper to go over the Whisper White.

Lastly I stamped the sentiment from the Special Celebrations Stamp Set in Versamark ink on a panel of Blueberry Bushel cardstock, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it.  I then matted this on Whisper White cardstock.
