Stampin’ Up! Back to School Harvest Hellos Cards

My kiddos go back to school Thursday.

It’s always bitter-sweet, but I know both them and I are ready to get back in the swing of things.

I’m not sure exactly when the tradition started, but I always hide a card in their lunch box the first day of school.  My kiddos make their own lunches, so it’s getting harder and harder to “sneak” them in, but I know they look forward to them.

This year I made their cards using the Harvest Hellos and Buffalo Check Stamp Sets.  The cards are all a similar design, but with different details depending on their personality.

For my son, going into 6th grade, also my picky eater, he’ll only eat Granny Smith Apples, so of course his card had green apples using Granny Apple Green colors.

For my youngest daughter, going into 4th grade, she’s going through an “I love red and black” phase, so I kept a Basic Black card base and added some sparkly black ribbon.

For my oldest daughter, going into 8th grade, she’s obsessed with apples (yes, I even have to limit her to two apples a day), I kept things different than her sister’s (because heaven forbid I did the same) and added some extra details with the seeds.

Overall, I think they’ll like their cards and I can’t wait to hear all about their first day of school.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! You Always Deliver Sunshine Card

Happy Labor Day!

If you’re in the U.S. celebrating, I hope you enjoy a restful day off from work with your family.

My family and I will be getting together with my parents for a BBQ celebrating the last of summer right before the kids go back to school Thursday.  Enjoy your day!!!

My card today starts off with Pool Party cardstock.  I next layered a Mango Melody pattern from the Brights Designer Series Paper pack over a some Whisper White cardstock.

I next took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the mailman and flowers from the You Always Deliver Stamp Set on it in Memento Black.  I colored it in using Soft Suede (clothes, shoes, hat), Pool Party (vase), Mango Melody (flowers), Old Olive (leaves), Smoky Slate (bag), Ivory (skin), and Bronze (hair) Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I then matted it on Daffodil Delight cardstock.

Lastly I stamped the sentiment from the You Always Deliver Stamp Set in Soft Suede ink on Daffodil Delight cardstock.

Enjoy!


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

Stampin’ Up! Congratulations Card for Team Member

Today’s card was designed for one of my team members who recently promoted in her Stampin’ Up! business.

Right now is a great time to join my team as Stampin’ Up! has an amazing deal going on and tomorrow is the last day!!  For just $99 get $155 work of product and it ships for free!

My card starts off with Petal Pink cardstock which I embossed with the Pinewood Planks Embossing Folder.

I then took a panel of Shimmer White cardstock and stamped the flower from the Good Morning Magnolia Stamp Set in Versamark ink.  I sprinkled it with Gold Embossing Powder and heat set it.

I colored it in using an Aqua Painter and Petal Pink and Grapefruit Grove (flower) and Call Me Clover (leaves) inks.  I stamped the sentiment from the Special Celebrations Stamp Set in Versamark ink and embossed it in gold also.  Lastly I added a Petal Pink ribbon.

Enjoy!


Today’s card was loosely inspired by this week’s Fab Friday Challenge.  I say “loosely” because I had every intention of using the Blueberry Bushel color and it just didn’t happen.

Stampin’ Up! NEW Still Scenes Christmas Card

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

My card starts off with Night of Navy cardstock.  On that I adhered a pattern from the Brightly Gleaming Specialty DSP.

Next I took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the sentiment from the Still Scenes Stamp Set in Night of Navy ink and then matted it on Night of Navy cardstock.

I stamped the top of the snow globe over another pattern in Versamark ink, sprinkled it with Copper Embossing Powder, and heat set it.

I used the Snow Globe Scenes Dies to cut out the top piece and the layered bottom piece, as well as the polar bears from Whisper White cardstock.  Behind them I adhered two banners of Copper foil.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! To a Wild Rose Card HSS #322

If you haven’t noticed yet which embossing folder is my favorite, this week will definitely let you know.

Without realizing it, I used the Subtle Embossing Folder both yesterday and today.

My card today starts off with Blackberry Bliss cardstock.  I then adhered over it a Whisper White panel which I embossed using the Subtle Embossing Folder.

The colors for my card today were inspired by this week’s Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge.  Be sure to play along as it’s a very colorful one.

Next I used the To A Wild Rose Stamp Set to create my flowers.  I stamped the outline in Memento Black ink.  I stamped one flower in Rich Razzleberry and one in Rococo Rose ink, stamping off first for the more solid image.  I stamped the leaf outline in Memento Black ink and the inside in Smoky Slate ink.

I cut these out using the Wild Rose Dies.  I also used the dies to cut out Blackberry Bliss and Rococo Rose flowers and the leaves from Gray Granite cardstock.

I stamped the sentiment from the To A Wild Rose Stamp Set in Versamark ink, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it.

Lastly, I added a Rococo Rose Faceted Dot next to the flowers and a few Rhinestones.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! NEW Christmas Gleaming Card FMS#300

These days that we’re having in Upstate New York are my favorite!

Warm days, cool nights, the sun going down earlier, shorts and a sweatshirt, the smell of a cozy candle lit, and the perfect time for crafting.

So although it’s still summer, I am definitely in the mood for fall and winter crafting.

My card today starts off with Cherry Cobbler cardstock.  I next embossed a panel of Whisper White cardstock using the Subtle Embossing Folder and matted this on Old Olive cardstock.

I stamped the two ornaments from the Christmas Gleaming Stamp Set in Versamark ink on Cherry Cobbler cardstock.  I sprinkled it with Gold Embossing Powder and heat set it.  I cut it out using the coordinating Gleaming Christmas Punch Pack.

I stamped the berries and holly leaves image from the Christmas Gleaming Stamp Set in Versamark ink, sprinkled it with Gold Embossing Powder, and heat set it.  I colored it in using the Old Olive and Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I fussy cut them out.

I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set in Old Olive ink and adhered it over the ornaments using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! CAS Above the Clouds Graduation Card

Today’s card is a CAS (clean and simple) card that we made at my last stamp class.

If you’re local and interested in attending a stamp class, I have the September classes posted on my Facebook page.

My card starts off with Balmy Blue cardstock.  I next took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the clouds from the Above the Clouds Stamp Set on it multiple times in Balmy Blue ink.  I then matted this on Night of Navy cardstock.

Next I stamped the outline of the hot air balloon and basket in Flirty Flamingo ink on a separate piece of Whisper White cardstock.  I stamped the “filler” of each also in Flirty Flamingo, but this time I stamped off first.  I cut these out using the Hot Air Balloon Punch and adhered them down with Stampin’ dimensionals.

Next I stamped the outline of the banner in Night of Navy ink and the “filler” in the same, but stamping off first.  I fussy cut it out and adhered it over the balloon.  I stamped the sentiment from the Above the Clouds Stamp Set in Night of Navy ink on Flirty Flamingo cardstock.

Enjoy!
