Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Friendship Smile Card

Happy Tuesday everyone!

For today I made a (fairly) monochromatic card using Flirty Flamingo.  A great way to get different shades of the same color is to “stamp off.”  When you “stamp off,” you just literally…stamp off.

You ink up your stamp and then first stamp on a scrap piece of paper and then stamp on your desired space.  You can even stamp off a few times to get a very light shade of color.

My card today starts off with Flirty Flamingo cardstock.  I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the flowers in Flirty Flamingo ink and leaves in Pear Pizzazz ink from the Beautiful Friendship Stamp Set.

As mentioned above, I stamped off first to get the lighter shade of Flirty Flamingo.

I then embossed the cardstock using the Subtle Embossing Folder and matted it on Whisper White cardstock.

I then stamped the “make me smile” from the Well Said Stamp Set in Versamark ink on Flirty Flamingo cardstock.  I sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder and heat set it.

I then used the Well Written Dies and cut out three “you” words.  I adhered them over one another and added a single rhinestone next to the sentiment.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Flowers for Every Season Sunflower Card

If you’ve followed my blog for a bit now you’ll know I love simple cards.

I don’t think it takes much to make a pretty card and today all it took was Designer Series Paper, embossed cardstock, a sweet embellishment, and a fun sentiment.

My card starts off with Misty Moonlight cardstock (NEW 2020-2022 In Color) which I embossed with the NEW Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder.

I used the Stitched Rectangles Dies to cut out a pattern from the NEW Flowers for Every Season Designer Series Paper.

This DSP is included in my Product Share, along with all the new paper.  Check out all the details here on how you can get a sampling of all the new Designer Series Paper and more!

I matted the DSP on Bumblebee cardstock (another NEW 2020-2022 In Color) and then again on Whisper White cardstock.  I then added two Bumblebee Enamel Dots under the cardstock.

Lastly I stamped the sentiment from the Under My Umbrella Stamp Set in Versamark ink on Bumblebee cardstock, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it.  I cut it out using the Stitched Rectangles Dies and adhered it down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!


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

Stampin’ Up! *NEW Tasteful Touches Thanks Card

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

I made a simple card today that features three new products from the new Annual Catalog: the Many Mates Stamp Set (sentiment), the Tasteful Touches Stamp Set (flower), and one of the new In Colors, Misty Moonlight.

Did you catch my In Color comparison and unboxing video?  You can check it out here.

My card starts off with Sahara Sand cardstock which I embossed using the Pinewood Planks Embossing Folder.

Next I cut a panel of Misty Moonlight cardstock and Seaside Spray cardstock and matted them on Whisper White cardstock.  I stamped the flower from the Tasteful Touches Stamp Set in Versamark ink over the seam of the two.

In the bottom corner I stamped the “You’re So Nice” from the Many Mates Stamp Set in Versamark ink, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it.

I stamped the “thanks” from the Many Mates Stamp Set in Seaside Spray ink on Whisper White cardstock and cut it out using the Stitched Nested Labels Dies.  I snipped the end of it and adhered it down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Country Home Tile Background Card

A friend of mine posted a picture of her new breakfast nook and it immediately inspired today’s card!

She’s an amazing designer and is just one of those people that has a great eye for design.  Be sure to head over and check out her Etsy store.

I used the tile from the Country Home Stamp Set to create my own tile background.

My card starts off with Night of Navy cardstock.  I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the tile in Night of Navy ink on it.  I purposefully didn’t ink the stamp fully to get a rustic look on it.  I just lightly tapped the stamp on the ink.

I matted this on Whisper White cardstock and wrapped around some Gray Granite ribbon in a knot.  I then used the Stitched Shapes Dies to cut out a Whisper White square.  I matted this on Gray Granite cardstock and then on Night of Navy cardstock.

I stamped the pitcher from the Country Home Stamp Set in Gray Granite ink and colored it in using the Gray Granite Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I fussy cut it out and adhered it down with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment in Versamark ink on Night of Navy cardstock, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it.  I fussy cut it out and adhered it down using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!
