Stampin’ Up! Monochromatic A Little Lace Card

As we speak, here in Upstate New York we are getting dumped with snow!!

I say bring it on – the more the better – as it’s the perfect excuse to sit and stamp.

My card today starts off with Pool Party cardstock.  Over the card front I adhered a pattern from the *NEW Parisian Blossoms Specialty Designer Series Paper (available Jan 3).

Next I took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and first stamped the larger image from the Artisan Textures Stamp Set in Pool Party ink (stamping off first).  Over that I stamped the flower image from the A Little Lace Stamp Set in Pool Party ink (full strength).

I matted this on Silver Foil and added a few rhinestones around it.  Lastly, I stamped the sentiment from the A Little Lace Stamp Set in Versamark ink, sprinkled it with Silver Embossing Powder, and heat set it.

Enjoy and stay safe to all my friends in Upstate New York!


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

In just a few hours I’ll be headed to Hartford, CT for Stampin’ Up!’s OnStage event.  Don’t forget to follow my Facebook and Instagram pages as I’ll be posting lots of pics (including sneak peeks).

I’m super excited as this is my first year attending CentreStage, an event on Friday night for demonstrators that hold the title Silver Elite or higher.

I would just like to take a moment to say thank you to all my customers and team for helping me achieve this milestone – it means the world to me!

My card today starts off with Bermuda Bay cardstock.  I took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the pens from the It Starts With Art Stamp Set on it in Bermuda Bay ink and then matted it on Night of Navy cardstock.

I stamped the ribbon image in Memento Black ink and colored it in using Highland Heather, Bermuda Bay, and Night of Navy Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered this down on a circle of Highland Heather cardstock cut out using the Layering Circles Dies.

I adhered across the bottom a Gorgeous Grape pattern from the Brights Designer Series Paper.  I then stamped the sentiment from the Beauty Abounds Stamp Set in Bermuda Bay ink, fussy cutting out the words and adhering them with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Lastly, I added a few Gorgeous Grape rhinestones in the corner.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Birthday Card Beautiful Friendship

Every week for the month of October I’ve been giving my team a sketch and color challenge.  They can use them individually or in the same project.

I took a break from Christmas cards today and used the challenges to make a birthday card.

My card starts off with Terracotta Tile cardstock, on which I adhered a Terracotta Tile pattern from the 2019-2021 In-Color Designer Series Paper.

I next took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the flowers from the Beautiful Friendship Stamp Set in Terracotta Tile ink and leaves in Mint Macaron.  I then matted this on Mint Macaron cardstock.

Lastly I stamped the sentiment in parts so that it would fit on a long banner in Versamark ink, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it.  In order to stamp the sentiment in parts, I covered the part I wasn’t stamping with washi tape, inked up the stamp, removed the tape, and stamped it down.  I did this until I had the full sentiment.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Hello Good Morning Magnolia Card

This week’s Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge is a color challenge.

I was really inspired by these colors together and I know you will be too, so be sure to play along with us.

My card starts off with Mint Macaron cardstock which I embossed using the Brick & Mortar Embossing Folder.

Next I took a panel of Watercolor Paper and stamped the flower from the Good Morning Magnolia image in Versamark ink.  I did this along the top and bottom of it, then sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it.  I colored it in using an Aqua Painter and Grapefruit Grove, Terracotta Tile, Mint Macaron, and Pretty Peacock ink.

I then matted this on Pretty Peacock cardstock.

I next stamped the sentiment in Versamark ink on Grapefruit Grove cardstock, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it.  I cut it out using the Stitched Nested Label Dies.  I adhered it down with two Stampin’ Dimensionals stacked on one another.

Next I wound around some Pretty Peacock Scalloped Linen Ribbon, poked a hole in it using Paper Snips, and secured it with a metallic brad.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Gather Together Fall Card

I usually have a lot of layers and matted cardstock on my cards, but both today and last Thursday I’ve kept things more simple…

and I really like how they came out!

Today’s card starts off with Pumpkin Pie cardstock.  I then took the Swirly Frames Stamp Set and stamped the circle twice in Cajun Craze ink.

I used the new Gather Together Bundle to create my leaf.  I first stamped it in Memento Black ink on Whisper White cardstock and then used Granny Apple Green, Mango Melody, Pumpkin Pie, and Cajun Craze Stampin’ Blends Markers to color it in.

I used the Seasonal Layers Dies and Mango Melody and Cajun Craze cardstock to cut out two leaves.  I stamped the sentiment from the Gather Together Stamp Set in Memento Black ink in the corner.

Lastly I wound some Cajun Craze Linen Thread to add over the leaf.

Enjoy!
