Stampin’ Up! Colorful Seasons – Spring Hello

This month’s Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop theme is “Celebrate Spring.”  Enjoy hopping around and seeing how everyone incorporated spring into their card.

My card starts off with Coastal Cabana cardstock which I embossed using the Tin Tile embossing folder.

I then took a panel of Watercolor Paper and very sparingly did a watercolor wash using Coastal Cabana ink and an Aqua Painter.  I then matted this on Flirty Flamingo cardstock.

I stamped the sentiment from the Flourishing Phrases Stamp Set in Bermuda Bay ink in the left upper corner.

I tucked a banner of Silver Foil underneath it and adhered it down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I used the Colorful Seasons Stamp Set to stamp the flowers in Flirty Flamingo ink and then the Seasonal Layers Framelits to cut them out, as well as a branch from Early Espresso cardstock.  I added little rhinestones to the center of the flowers.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Colorful Seasons Fall Card

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

My card today starts off with Crushed Curry cardstock.

I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock (to be matted on Merry Merlot cardstock) and used the Colorful Seasons Stamp Set to create my own background.  I stamped the two sizes of leaves in Merry Merlot, Crushed Curry, Mossy Meadow, and Mango Melody ink across it.

Next I cut out a leaf from Gold Foil using the Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies.  I tied a Merry Merlot bow to adhere just over the leaf.

Lastly, I stamped the sentiment from the Another Wonderful Year Stamp Set in Versamark ink on a panel of Mossy Meadow cardstock, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder and heat set it.  I adhered this down with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Colorful Seasons – SIP Challenge 155

There’s nothing like new Designer Series Paper to inspire you.

Someone recently asked me how do you decide what colors to use for a card.
Well, many times I pick colors that Stampin’ Up! has put together in Designer Series Paper.

The great thing is Stampin Up marks right on the bag of the packet of paper what colors are in it/coordinate with it.

For today’s card I was inspired by the Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper and in particular the one pattern in the upper right hand corner.

My card starts off with Mango Melody cardstock.  I then matted a piece of Whisper White cardstock on Melon Mambo cardstock.

I used the Seasonal Layers Thinlits to cut out a bunch of flowers to cascade down the card.  I used all the pinks and oranges from the Garden Impressions DSP:  Melon Mambo, Calypso Coral, Petal Pink, Powder Pink, So Saffron, and Mango Melody.

I cut out a circle using the Layering Circles Framelits from Melon Mambo cardstock.  The DSP also had a hint of Soft Sea Foam, so I used that cardstock to cut out an Adirondack chair.

Lastly I stamped the sentiment from the Colorful Seasons stamp set in Mango Melody.

Enjoy!


My card was inspired by this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper challenge.  I chose my design for this challenge because summers always mean hikes in nearby mountains which happen to be the Adirondack Mountains – it’s where the type of chair in the die cut got its name – “Adirondack chair.”  I also love all the bright, vibrant colors in the flowers in summer.

Stampin’ Up! Colorful Seasons

Today’s card is a quick, but sweet “Thinking of You” card which is really a thank you card.  Customers who placed orders this past week received this card in the mail with a message on a Post-It Note, leaving it blank for them to fill in and re-mail.

I recently bought the Colorful Seasons stamp set when it was on sale earlier this month, but didn’t have the coordinating thinlits….yet 😉

So I had to create a card that showcased the stamp set without the need to cut any leaves out.  Easier said than done and I, once again, have such an appreciation for thinlits/framelits.

My card starts off with Crushed Curry cardstock.  I took a panel of Whisper White cardstock (which will be layered on Pumpkin Pie cardstock) and created my falling leaves using the Colorful Seasons stamp set.  I took the smallest leaf and inked it up with Crushed Curry and then sort of tapped the edges on some Peekaboo Peach ink.

I did the same technique with the bigger leaf on a separate piece of Whisper White cardstock.  I inked up the outline leaf image in Versamark ink, sprinkled it with Gold embossing powder, and heat embossed it.  I cut this one out with the Stitched Shapes Framelits and then matted a Gold Foil Sheet square behind it.

I inked up the sentiment in Versamark ink, sprinkled it with Gold embossing powder, and heat embossed that as well.  I wound around some Gold Thread behind the square and adhered it to the card.

Enjoy!

Here’s the bunch of cards that went out in the mail.  It honestly brings me so much joy!  Remember what I always say – Don’t hoard the cards – mail them!
