Stampin’ Up! By The Dock Birthday Card

This past weekend I reached out on Facebook for advice on how to color in the By The Dock images for today’s card.

There wasn’t a clear winner, so I decided to go in a different direction…
Directly stamp on watercolor paper and use an Aqua Painter to color them in.

My card starts off with Crumb Cake cardstock.  Next I took a panel of Balmy Blue cardstock and embossed it using the Corrugated Embossing Folder.

I then took a panel of Watercolor Paper and stamped the images from the By The Dock Stamp Set in Stazon Black ink.  I used an Aqua Painter to color in the images – Soft Suede for the dock, Crumb Cake for the boat, and very subtle Balmy Blue around them.

I then matted this on Soft Suede cardstock.

I stamped the sentiment from the By The Dock Stamp Set in Versamark ink on Soft Suede cardstock, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it.  I cut it out using the Stitched Rectangles Dies.  I adhered this down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!


Today’s card was inspired by this week’s FabFriday Challenge.

Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Poppies Congratulations Card

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

As you’ll see in my card below I had no trouble with the Poppy Parade and Old Olive, but struggled with the Blackberry Bliss, so I sorta tucked that color in 😉

My card starts off with Poppy Parade cardstock.  I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the outline of the flower and leaves in Memento Black ink.

I took the flower “fill” image and stamped that in Poppy Parade ink over the flowers.  For the leaf, I inked it up in Old Olive ink but only stamped down a side of the stamp so as to keep the ink inside the leaf (as the image is much bigger than the leaf).  I then matted this on Basic Black cardstock.

I stamped the sentiment from the Peaceful Moments Stamp Set in Versamark ink on Basic Black cardstock.  I sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder and heat set it.  I cut it out using the coordinating Painted Labels Dies.

Underneath the sentiment I adhered a Blackberry Bliss banner and tied a Blackberry Bliss bow next to it.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tropical Friendship Card

How’s everyone holding up?

Things seem a bit crazy right now and I pray you find peace in it all.  As we move forward with little to no social contact, I’m grateful for stamping as a great way to pass time.

My card today starts with Daffodil Delight cardstock.  I took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the flower from the Timeless Tropical Stamp Set in Mango Melody ink and then matted it on Soft Suede cardstock.

I used the Stitched Shapes Dies to cut out a larger circle from Mango Melody cardstock and a smaller one from Daffodil Delight cardstock.  Under them I adhered a pattern from the Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper.

I stamped the flower and leaves from the Timeless Tropical Stamp Set in Memento Black ink.  I colored them in using Mango Melody and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends for the flower and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends for the leaves.  I cut these out using the coordinating In The Tropics Dies.

Lastly I stamped the sentiment from the Timeless Tropical Stamp Set in Mango Melody ink.

Enjoy!


Today’s card is part of this week’s new Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge.  It’s a great design and I sure hope you’ll play along!

Stampin’ Up! My Meadow Thinking of You Card

Today’s card is very personal for me.

It’s created with my grandparents in mind, and which I’ll be sending to my Grandma.

It reminds me of them because my grandparents had a gazebo on the side of their house.  My Grandpa always loved his purple irises (which my Grandma hated) and there was always this playful banter back and forth about them.

My card starts off with Thick Whisper White cardstock.

I  put a panel of Whisper White cardstock (4-1/2×5-1/2″) about 1/4 of the way into the Brick & Mortar Embossing Folder.  When I put it through the die cutting machine, I didn’t wind it all the way through.  I then took a piece of sponge and Gray Granite ink and very lighthandedly wiped the embossed bricks to add some color.

Underneath the bricks I stamped the sentiment from the Colorful Seasons Stamp Set in Highland Heather ink.

Next I used the My Meadow Stamp Set to create my scene using Gray Granite (gazebo), Old Olive (grass, leaves, stems), Soft Suede (tree trunk), and Highland Heather (flowers) ink.  I used the Stitched Shapes Dies to cut it out.

I used the Layering Circles Dies to cut out a Purple Posy circle and Highland Heather scalloped circle to layer underneath the scene.

Enjoy!


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

Stampin’ Up! Under My Umbrella Video Tutorial

A couple of weeks ago I created this card using the Under My Umbrella and it was definitely one of my all time favorites to make.

So for my live tutorial last week, I decided to take inspiration from it and create a version of it.

It uses the same colors and the Under My Umbrella Bundle, but arranges the images differently and adds more flowers.

I’ll be back tonight at 7:30 pm EST for another live tutorial.  I hope you’ll join me.  If you catch it live and leave a comment, you may just receive the card for free!

If you ever miss a tutorial, you can check them out on my YouTube channel.

Stampin’ Up! Parisian Beauty Off To Places Card

I love when two stamp sets from different catalogs work great together!!

I’m using the Parisian Beauty (from the Jan-June Mini Catalog) and the Above the Clouds (from the Annual Catalog) Stamp Sets for today’s card.

My card starts off with Pool Party cardstock.  On this I adhered a pattern from the Parisian Blossoms Designer Series Paper.

Next I stamped the Eiffel Tower from the Parisian Beauty Stamp Set in Petal Pink ink on a 2″ panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I cut the end in a banner and adhered it down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the stamp from the Parisian Beauty Stamp Set in Petal Pink ink and fussy cut it out.  I used the Layering Circles Dies to cut out a small circle from Petal Pink cardstock.  I adhered the stamp on the circle using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Lastly, I stamped the sentiment from the Above the Clouds Stamp Set in Pool Party ink.  I then snipped it in half and adhered it down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! By The Dock Watercolor Card

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

My card starts off with Coastal Cabana cardstock.

I took a panel of Watercolor Paper and generously applied water using an Aqua Painter.  I added one layer of Coastal Cabana ink to it using the Aqua Painter, dried it with the Heat Tool, wet the paper again, and added more color.

By adding color, drying it, and adding more color, you get a nice layered look of color.

I then offset a panel of Soft Suede cardstock underneath it.

I then stamped the dock and birds in Soft Suede ink and boat in Early Espresso ink on Watercolor Paper.  I used my Aqua Painter, not too wet, to pull color out from the stamped image.  I cut these out using the coordinating Dockside Dies.

I also added a little Daffodil Delight ink to the bellies of the birds.

I then stamped the sentiment from the By The Dock Stamp Set in Early Espresso ink on a Crumb Cake banner.  I adhered all the images down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!
