Stampin’ Up! Card Using Lemon Zest Stamp

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

My card starts off with Old Olive cardstock.  I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and matted it on Crushed Curry cardstock.

Then I did some fun layering using the Lemon Zest Stamp Set and matching Lemon Builder Punch.

TIP: Whenever you want to do some layering and are not quite sure how you want it to look.  Play around with the different images on your grid paper.  Then when you have it perfect – take a picture of it on your phone.  That way when you go to adhere everything down, you know exactly where to put it.

I stamped the whole lemon in Crushed Curry Ink and cut it out using the Lemon Builder Punch, as well as the leaves from Old Olive cardstock.

For the sliced lemons, I stamped off first for a lighter shade of Crushed Curry.  I fussy cut them out (although a circle framelit would’ve done the trick).  I adhered the one with a Stampin’ Dimensional.

I stamped the sentiments on Berry Burst cardstock in Versamark ink.  I sprinkled them with white embossing powder and heat set them.  The one I cut out using a circle stitched framelit.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Colorful Seasons – Spring Hello

This month’s Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop theme is “Celebrate Spring.”  Enjoy hopping around and seeing how everyone incorporated spring into their card.

My card starts off with Coastal Cabana cardstock which I embossed using the Tin Tile embossing folder.

I then took a panel of Watercolor Paper and very sparingly did a watercolor wash using Coastal Cabana ink and an Aqua Painter.  I then matted this on Flirty Flamingo cardstock.

I stamped the sentiment from the Flourishing Phrases Stamp Set in Bermuda Bay ink in the left upper corner.

I tucked a banner of Silver Foil underneath it and adhered it down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I used the Colorful Seasons Stamp Set to stamp the flowers in Flirty Flamingo ink and then the Seasonal Layers Framelits to cut them out, as well as a branch from Early Espresso cardstock.  I added little rhinestones to the center of the flowers.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Tropical Chic – FMS378

For today’s card I’m using a set I haven’t picked up in a while.  It’s the Tropical Chic Bundle.

The bundle mixed with the Tropical Escape Designer Series Paper is so tropical and makes me dream of hot days on the beach with a fun drink.

My card starts off with Blushing Bride cardstock.  I then matted a panel of Whisper White cardstock on Shaded Spruce cardstock.

I then adhered a pattern from the Tropical Escape Designer Series Paper to the card front.

I used the Tropical Thinlits Dies to cut out three leaves from Soft Sea Foam, Granny Apple Green, and Shaded Spruce cardstock. I cut Mini Dimensionals in half in order to adhere down the middle one.

Lastly I stamped the sentiment in Versamark ink, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it.  I adhered it down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!


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

Stampin’ Up! Swirly Frames Card

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

I have had the concept for today’s card in my head since I bought the Swirly Frames Stamp Set back in June.  I was so happy to finally put it together.

My card starts off with Night of Navy cardstock.  I then rubbed it with the Embossing Buddy to get all the static off.  I stamped the large and small circle from the Swirly Frames Stamp Set multiple times in Versamark ink.  I sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder and heat set it.

I then stamped the daisy from the Daisy Delight Stamp Set in Balmy Blue ink and the center in Night of Navy ink.  I cut them out using the Daisy Punch.

Next I stamped the sentiment from the Another Wonderful Year Stamp Set in Night of Navy ink and matted it on Balmy Blue cardstock, adhering it down with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

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!
