Stampin’ Up! Simply Succulents Card

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

My card starts off with Pool Party cardstock, which I embossed using the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder.

I guess I must really like this embossing folder as I’ve used it in 3 out of the 4 cards this week. What can I say – if it ain’t broke, no need to fix it. 😉

Next I took a panel of Soft Sea Foam cardstock and matted it on Basic White cardstock. I used a Soft Succulent pattern from the Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper that I adhered over the Soft Sea Foam cardstock.

Next I created my pot of succulents using the Simple Succulents Bundle. I stamped the pot using the Gray Granite Stampin’ Blends Markers and the succulent using the (new and available May 4th) Soft Succulent and Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I cut out an aloe plant from Soft Succulent cardstock and a the other elements from Pool Party cardstock. The single succulent I stamped in Soft Succulent ink on Basic White cardstock. I cut them out using the Potted Succulents Dies, adhering them down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Next I wound around a piece of Soft Succulent ribbon to go under the sentiment. The sentiment from the Simply Succulents Stamp Set I stamped in Soft Succulent ink. I cut it out along with the succulent details using the Potted Succulents Dies.

Stampin’ Up! Hydrangea Haven Mother’s Day Card

This week we’re talking about showing gratitude and for today I have a Mother’s Day card using the Hydrangea Haven Bundle.

The card may not come straight out and say thank you, but I think you’d agree that Mother’s Day is like 24 hours dedicated to saying thank you to mom.

Now, let’s be clear, I say mom, but it can be a mother figure, step-mom, grandma, or a friend who happens to be a mom.

Let’s take some time today to think about what mom in your life could use a thank you – you know, that mom who gives and gives and deserves some acknowledgment and gratitude for all they do!

Now on to the card details…

My card starts off with Highland Heather cardstock, on which I adhered two patterns from the Hydrangea Hill Designer Series Paper. I covered the seam with a piece of Gorgeous Grape ribbon.

Next, I took a panel of Basic White cardstock and stamped the “splotch” from the Hydrangea Haven Stamp Set (from the top down) in Gorgeous Grape, Highland Heather, Pear Pizzazz, and Old Olive ink. Over that I stamped the hydrangea image in Versamark ink, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it.

I stamped the sentiment from the Hydrangea Haven Stamp Set in Gorgeous Grape ink and matted it, as well as the other Basic White panel, on Gorgeous Grape cardstock.

I then added a couple of Pastel Pearls and a Rhinestone around the sentiment and added a Gorgeous Grape bow.

*Tip: I always tie the bow separate and just adhere it over. Firstly because I always do a fork bow and secondly because it’s just easier!

Stampin’ Up! Epic Celebrations

Happy Friday!!

Today’s card took me a bit out of my comfort zone.  I normally would never put these colors together, but I think they’re great for a boy’s card or a teenager’s card.

The Epic Celebrations stamp set from the Sale-a-bration catalog is one of a kind and there’s nothing like it in any of the current catalogs.  It’s a must for young kids!  I can’t wait to scrapbook my son’s pictures with it!

I featured today’s card on my Wednesday Facebook Live Tutorial that I do weekly at 7:30 pm EST.  If you ever miss it live, I post all my videos on YouTube.

Check out this past week’s video to see how I made this card.

Enjoy!
