Stampin’ Up! Challenging Colors Abstract Impressions Card

This week’s Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop is a color challenge…and boy did I find it challenging.  Happy hopping!

My card starts off with Blushing Bride cardstock which I embossed using the Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing Folder.

Be sure to use the new 3D Embossing Folder Plate so that you get a good impression.

I cut out a Whisper White rectangle using the Rectangle Stitched Dies.  I used the Abstract Impressions Stamp to create my scene.  I stamped the flowers in Blushing Bride ink, stems in Garden Green ink, and butterfly in Crushed Curry ink.  I stamped off first for the lighter shade of each color.

I stamped the flowers agan on a separate piece of Whisper White cardstock and fussy cut out a few of them to adhere down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Abstract Impressions Stamp Set in Garden Green ink and added a Mini Library Clip on it.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Let it Ride Neutral Colors Card

For today’s card I pulled out a stamp set from the Occasions Catalog that carried over, the Let It Ride Stamp Set.

I thought the images paired well with the new Pressed Petals Designer Series Paper.

My card starts off with Mint Macaron cardstock.  I then matted a pattern from the Pressed Petals Designer Series Paper on Whisper White cardstock.

I used the Stitched Shapes Dies and cut out a Whisper White circle.  I used the Let It Ride Stamp Set and stamped the trees in Old Olive ink and horses in Soft Suede ink.  I colored the horses in using the Dark and Light Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends.

I stamped the sentiment from the Colorful Seasons Stamp Set in Soft Suede ink on Old Olive cardstock.

Next I tied a Linen Thread bow in a leaf trinket.

Enjoy!


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

Stampin’ Up! Label Me Pretty Card – HSS320

I can’t even begin to believe it’s almost August.
I’m holding onto summer tightly and still love playing with pretty flowers and sweet birds in my cards.

My card today starts off with Pool Party cardstock which I embossed using my FAVORITE embossing folder, the Subtle EF.

My card was inspired by the latest Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge.  You can get pretty creative with this sketch and I hope you’ll play along with us this week!

Next, I took the polka dot pattern from the Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper and matted a piece of it on Whisper White cardstock.

Underneath it I tucked a Whisper White circle which I cut out using the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I used our super sharp Paper Snips to fussy cut out a bird from the Bird Ballad DSP and adhered him down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Label Me Pretty Stamp Set in Versamark ink on a 2″ piece of Calypso Coral cardstock, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it.  I cut the top of it using the Delightful Tag Topper, wound a piece of White Flax Ribbon through it, and secured it with a staple.

Lastly, I added a few pearls around the card.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! One Design, Two Cards

I have two cards for you today.

The same design, but different colors.
Be sure to let me know which you like more in the comments.

My first card starts off with Calypso Coral cardstock.

I took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the Buffalo Check stamp on it in Calypso Coral ink.  I used a dauber to apply the ink to the stamp so that it only covered a section of the stamp.  I then matted this on So Saffron cardstock.

I cut out a bunch (probably 8) petals from the So Saffron Vellum using the Perennial Flower Punch and adhered them over one another.  I added a Perennial Essence Floral Center to it.

I stamped the sentiment from the Tropical Chic Stamp Set in Calypso Coral ink and adhered it using Stampin’ Dimensionals

The second card is the same design, but the flower is made from regular Vellum cardstock and the  Buffalo Check was stamped on Petal Pink cardstock.

This sentiment came from the Butterfly Gala stamp set.

Enjoy!
