Stampin’ Up! Arrange a Wreath Just Because Card

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

My card starts off with Night of Navy cardstock which I embossed using the Dainty Diamonds Embossing Folder.

I then took a pattern from the Playing with Patterns Designer Series Paper and matted it on Whisper White cardstock.

I used the Wreath Builder Dies to cut out a wreath from Night of Navy cardstock, sprigs from Coastal Cabana cardstock, and flowers from Whisper White cardstock.  Inside the flowers I added a small rhinestone.

To add a little touch I added a Purple Posy bow from the Playing with Patterns Ribbon Combo Pack.

Finally, I stamped the sentiment from the Lovely You Stamp Set in Night of Navy ink.

Stampin’ Up! Nothing’s Better Than Coffee Card

This year, believe it or not, we have decided to homeschool our kids…
Any homeschoolers out there?

I swore I’d never do it…and here I am in full on prep mode.

I have a dear friend who’s in the same boat so I decided to make her this card.  We’re both going to need lots of coffee…and Jesus!

My card starts off with Petal Pink cardstock.  I then took a pattern from the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper and matted it on Whisper White cardstock.

I used the Painted Labels Dies to cut out a label from Gray Granite and Whisper White cardstock.  On the Whisper White one, I stamped the sentiments from the Nothing’s Better Than Stamp Set in Gray Granite ink and adhered it over the other using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I used the coordinating Love You More Than Dies to cut out three “coffee” sentiments from Petal Pink cardstock and adhered them one over the other.

I stamped the coffee mugs in Gray Granite ink and the inside image in Petal Pink ink (stamping off first for a softer look) and cut them out with the same coordinating dies.  Lastly, I added a few Champagne Rhinestones.

Stampin’ Up! Birds & Branches Friendship Card

The Birds & Branches Bundle is so sweet and fun to play with.

Using this bundle I’ve made a card using the stamped images.  I’ve also made a card using the die images.  And today I’m using a combination of both.

My card starts off with Crumb Cake cardstock.  I then took a panel of Balmy Blue cardstock and embossed it using the Subtle Embossing Folder.  I matted this on Whisper White cardstock and offset some Soft Suede cardstock underneath it.

I first stamped the two birds from the Birds & Branches Stamp Set in Memento Black ink.  Over that I stamped the other bird image over it in Daffodil Delight.  I also stamped feet for each of the birds in Memento Black ink.  I cut these images out and a Soft Suede branch using the Birds & More Dies.

I wrapped some Linen Thread around this in a bow.  I then stamped the sentiment from the Free As a Bird Stamp Set in Soft Suede ink.  I cut it out using the Tasteful Labels Dies.  I adhered this and the birds down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin’ Up! Simple Square Birds & Branches Card

Sure hope everyone had a lovely weekend!

Mine was well spent and I even got some stamping time in to create this week’s projects for you.

First up is a square card using the Birds & Branches Bundle…

My card today starts off with Mint Macaron cardstock which I cut to 4-1/4 x 8-1/2, scored at 4-1/4.  I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and embossed it using the Pinewood Planks embossing folder and then matted it on another panel of Whisper White cardstock.

I then cut out a branch from Just Jade cardstock and two birds from Petal Pink cardstock using the Birds & More Dies.  I adhered the birds down using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Underneath the Whisper White panel, I adhered a small piece of Just Jade ribbon.

I stamped the sentiment from the Ornate Thanks Stamp Set in Just Jade ink, adhering it down with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Lastly, I added a few Pearls around.

Thanks for checking out today’s project!


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

Stampin’ Up! NEW Coming Home Welcome Card

First things first…

Today starts the beginning of an ordering promotion when you shop through my store…

Get a free $9  $15 item(s) with any order of $50+.  You’ll also earn a $5 coupon from Stampin’ Up! to spend on an order placed in August! That’s what I call a win-win!

Now, on to today’s card which uses a new bundle from the NEW Aug-Dec Mini Catalog, the Come Home Bundle.

My card starts off with Pear Pizzazz cardstock.

I embossed a panel of Pear Pizzazz cardstock for the front using the NEW Wrapped in Texture Embossing Folder (available Aug 4).

It’s a mini embossing folder so only measures 3-3/8x 6-1/4″.  If you want to emboss a bigger panel than that just run it through twice.  It’ll nearly look perfect, but if you want to cover the seam, just wrap some ribbon around.

I wrapped the Pear Pizzazz with some Old Olive ribbon.

I then stamped the house, trees, and car (my favorite) from the Come Home Stamp Set in Memento Black ink on Balmy Blue, Pear Pizzazz, and So Saffron cardstock.  I cut them out using the coordinating Home Together Dies.

**The Come Home stamp set/bundle is really special because $3 of each sale will go to charities devoted to adoption, foster care, and infertility and will be available beginning Aug 4th.

I then used the Well Written Dies to cut out three “welcomes” from Basic Black cardstock which I adhered over one another.

I matted this panel on Basic Black cardstock and adhered it down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Thanks for checking out my project today!!


Today’s card was loosely inspired by the FabFriday Challenge (loosely, because after I made it I realized I never did a scalloped detail, oops).

Stampin’ Up! Prized Peony Thinking of You Card

I am really enjoying the Stitched Triangles Dies.

I shared this card last week and wanted to pull them out again for today’s card.

My card starts off with Thick Whisper White cardstock.  I then cut out two triangles from the Flowers for Every Season Designer Series Paper, which I adhered down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the two peonies and leaves from the Prized Peony Stamp Set in Basic Gray ink.  I colored them in using the Daffodil Delight and Mango Melody (flowers) and Shaded Spruce (leaves) Stampin’ Blends Markers.

Under the peonies I adhered two gold leaves and adhered the flowers down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Around them I added some Pearls and Bumblebee Enamel Dots.

I stamped the sentiment from the brand new In The Pines Stamp Set in Bumblebee Ink and cut it out using Stitched Rectangles Dies.

The In The Pines Stamp Set is brand new to the Aug-Dec Mini Catalog and available beginning Aug 4th!!

Stampin’ Up! Super Quick and Simple Lovely You Card

You know me, I love a super clean and simple card.

Jazzed up cards are nice too, but there’s something beautiful about simplicity.

And the Lovely You Stamp Set is perfect for just that!

My card starts off with Just Jade cardstock.

I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I used a pencil to draw a diagonal line across it so I knew where to stamp.  I used the Lovely You Stamp Set and stamped the different images in Pretty Peacock, Jude Jade, Mint Macaron, and Petal Pink ink.

I then wound around some Gold thread and stamped the sentiment just above it in Just Jade ink.  I also added a few Gilded Gems next to the sentiment.

Lastly, I matted this on another panel of Whisper White cardstock and adhered it down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
