Stampin’ Up! Springtime Impressions Card

This month’s Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop them is “birthdays!”  I can’t wait to see what everyone created as birthday cards are just one of those things I’m constantly sending out.

My card today starts off with Lovely Lipstick cardstock.  I then took a panel of Bermuda Bay cardstock and embossed it using the Pinewood Planks Embossing Folder.  I matted this on Whisper White cardstock and adhered it to the card.

Next I used the Spring Impressions Thinlits to cut out the intricate flower from Watercolor Paper.  I then used the Layering Circles Framelits to trim it down to a circle.  I used an Aqua Painter and Lovely Lipstick, Bermuda Bay, Rich Razzleberry, Call Me Clover, and Pineapple Punch inks to color in the flowers.

I cut out a Whisper White scalloped circle to go behind it.  Next I stamped the sentiment in Lovely Lipstick ink from the Perennial Birthday Stamp Set.  I wound behind it some Silver Thread.

I tucked behind the sentiment a small piece of Burlap Ribbon and adhered the sentiment down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!


Today’s card is inspired by this week’s Fab Friday challenge.

Stampin’ Up! Boy’s Birthday Card

Today my son turns 10!!!  … Double Digits!

It’s a big deal.  If you’ve followed my blog over the past couple of years, you’ll know that I go all out decorating for birthdays.  Balloons.  Streamers.  Beds decorated.

And I always try to think about their interests and what they’re into for both their decorating, as well as their birthday card.  My son is really into black and lime green right now, so that’s what I went with! 

Of course I had to match the card to the decorations.

My card starts off with Basic Black cardstock.  I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and matted it on Lemon Lime Twist cardstock.

I stamped the bike using the Bike Ride Stamp Set and cut it out using the Build A Bike Framelits Dies.  I used Memento Black and Lemon Lime Twist ink.  I also cut out the Lemon Lime Twist banners using the framelits.

I stamped the dots using the Balloon Celebration Stamp Set and cut the balloons out using the Balloon Banquet Punch.  I tied Black Baker’s Twine around them and tied a knot around the handlebars of the bike.  I adhered the balloons down with Stampin’ Dimensionals and adhered the bike (minus the tires) down in Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The sentiment comes from the Sunshine Wishes Stamp Set and was stamped in Memento Black ink.

Enjoy!

Next I created a starburst circle using the Layering Circles Framelits.  I was going to show this card tomorrow night in my Facebook Live Tutorial to show how I created the sunburst, but then I realized tomorrow night is an Interactive Video!!!  Needless to say, this card tutorial will have to wait.

Lastly, I cut out the “celebrate” using the Celebrate You Thinlits Dies from Bermuda Bay cardstock.  I squished it into Versamark ink and sprinkled it with clear embossing powder.  I heat set it with a heat tool.  It gives a very fun, shiny effect to it.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Rainbow Birthday Card

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

When I saw the new 2018-2019 In-Colors I knew they’d be perfect the Sunshine & Rainbows Bundle.

I started my card out with Blueberry Bushel cardstock.  I then took a panel of Lovely Lipstick and Grapefruit Grove cardstock and matted them on Whisper White cardstock.  I wrapped around it some Grapefruit Grove Twine from the Nature’s Twine Combo Pack (available June 1st).

This twine is GREAT!!!!  The only way I can describe it is it has a little “umf” in it…like it’s stiffer, so it makes a beautiful bow!  Get a sampling of this twine and all the new ribbon in my Annual Catalog Product Share!

Next I took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and used the Pattern Party Decorative Mask and Embossing Paste to create my clouds.  Embossing paste adds such great texture to the card and although I’ve left it white, you can dye it different colors.

Next I used the Sunshine & Rainbow Bundle to create my rainbow.  I cut the arcs in Lovely Lipstick, Grapefruit Grove, Pineapple Punch, Call Me Clover, Blueberry Bushel, and Rich Razzleberry cardstock.

*This bundle is set to retire, so get it while you can!

I put washi tape all along the back of the rainbow, first to hold the colors together, but also so I could adhered Stampin’ Dimensionals behind it!  I stamped a sun from the Sunshine & Rainbows stamp set in Pineapple Punch ink.

Lastly, I stamped the sentiment in Blueberry Bushel ink.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Bubble Over Masculine Card

This month’s Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop’s theme is “Masculine.”  I hope you’ll hop around to see what we’ve each created this month!

Masculine cards sure can be tricky.  No frills, fluff, or sweet details.  I tend to stick to clean and simple for masculine cards and that’s what I’ve created today.

I started off with Chocolate Chip cardstock.  I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock (which was matted on Real Red cardstock) and stamped on the front of it circles in Crushed Curry ink from the Bubble Over Stamp Set.

Next I cut out two bottles from Chocolate Chip cardstock using the Bottles & Bubbles Framelits.   I used a piece of a stamping sponge and Chocolate Chip ink to add extra color to the edge of the bottles.

*Note: Although the Bubble Over and matching framelits are carrying over into the Annual Catalog, it will NOT be carried over as a bundle.  Get the Bubble Over Bundle now while you can to receive the 10% discount!

I stamped the sentiment and the star in Real Red ink and cut them out using the same framelits as above.  Lastly, I cut out two silver bottle caps to add to the bottles.

Enjoy!

Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge #288

Happy Tuesday everyone!

I sure hope your week is going smoothly so far.  It seems as though we finally have spring here in Upstate New York.  Yesterday was filled with kids on their bikes, dirty feet, and ice cream.

I’m so excited to share with you the next Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge #288 as it screams spring!  I really hope you’ll hop over to see what the design team created for this challenge and I sure hope you’ll participate!

I first started off with Rich Razzleberry cardstock.  Next I took a pattern from the Wood Textures DSP and stamped the sentiment from the Perennial Birthday Stamp Set in Versamark ink.  I sprinkled it with white embossing powder and heat set it.

Next I took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and laid the Wood Textures panel over it.  I marked where it would get adhered with a pencil.  I then used the Perennial Birthday Stamp Set (which is carrying over into the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog – wahoo!) and stamped a variety of flowers in Memento Black ink all around that penciled line.  I colored the flowers in using Rich Razzleberry, Daffodil Delight, and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I adhered the Wood Textures DSP using Stampin’ Dimensionals and added Rich Razzleberry Pearls (from the Share What You Love Artisan – available June 1st) around the flowers.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Picture Perfect Birthday

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

I was REALLY inspired by this week’s colors!!  I love these colors together.  They just look so funky.

My card starts off with Basic Black cardstock.  I then took a pattern from the Petal Passion DSP and used a Sponge Dauber to stamp Lemon Lime Twist ink in two corners.  I matted this on Lemon Lime Twist cardstock and adhered it to the card.

Next I created my cluster in the center of the card.  First I adhered down a piece of Lemon Lime Twist ribbon.  Next I stamped the banner from the Banners for You Stamp Set and cut it out using the coordinating Bunch of Banners Framelits.  I trimmed off the one side (see below) of the banner and adhered it down.

I used the Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set to make my party blowers.  I alternated Lemon Lime Twist, Berry Burst, and Memento Black ink and then fussy cut them out.

Lastly, I stamped the sentiment in Versamark ink on Berry Burst cardstock, sprinkled it with white embossing powder, and heat set it.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! We Must Celebrate

I cannot say enough how much I love the Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I’m not usually one to color a lot, but they make coloring and shadowing so easy.

Although the Pink Pirouette markers (as used in today’s card) are retiring, 11 new colors are being added to the Stampin’ Blends collection.

My card today starts off with Thick Whisper White cardstock.  I then layered over it a pattern from the Petal Passion DSP and added a 1-1/2″ Pink Pirouette banner over that.

Next I stamped the animals from the We Must Celebrate Stamp Set in Memento Black ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I colored in the images using Crumb Cake, Smoky Slate, and Pink Pirouette Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I stamped the sentiment in Memento Black ink on a small panel of Pink Pirouette cardstock and added a few Pink Pirouette Enamel stars in the bottom corner.

Enjoy!


Today’s card was inspired by this week’s Fab Friday Challenge.
