Stampin’ Up! Sweet Strawberry Hello Card

Who’s ready for tomorrow?!

The 2021-2022 Annual Catalog goes live!!! I have my list written out and ready to go!

My card today starts off with Poppy Parade cardstock. I then took a panel of Basic White cardstock and splattered Poppy Parade ink on it using the Stampin’ Blends markers.

I then stamped the leaf image from the Sweet Strawberry Stamp Set in Memento Black ink on the panel of Basic White cardstock. I colored it in using the Granny Apple Green and a little Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I cut out a circle of Basic Black cardstock using the Layering Circles Dies. I stamped the sentiment from the Sweet Strawberry Stamp Set in Memento Black ink on Basic White cardstock. I cut it out using the Tasteful Labels Dies.

I stamped the strawberries, leaf, and flower in Memento Black ink. I colored it in with Poppy Parade, Granny Apple Green, and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends. I cut it out using the Strawberry Builder Punch.

Stampin’ Up! Oh Snap Birthday Card

All this week I’ve been sharing cards using the 2021-2023 In Colors. Today, I’m sharing a card that uses Pale Papaya.

This week’s Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop is a theme challenge, “Things with Wings.” I decided to use a not to obvious option – the Oh Snap Stamp Set. Have fun hopping through the blogs!

My card starts off with Thick Basic White cardstock.

I then adhered a pattern from the True Love Designer Series Paper to the left of the card.

Using the Stitched So Sweetly, I cut out a panel from Pale Papaya cardstock and another panel from the NEW Ombre Specialty Paper. It’s actually not that long, but I snipped it in half and adhered it so it looks like it’s a long panel.

I then stamped the crocodile, bird, and fish in Memento Black ink. I colored them in using Granny Apple Green (croc), a tad of Daffodil Delight (bird), and Pale Papaya (fish) Stampin’ Blends Markers. I fussy cut them out and adhered them down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Lastly, I stamped part of a sentiment from the Oh Snap Stamp Set in Memento Black ink and snipped the end in a banner.

My card starts off with Crumb Cake cardstock, which I covered with a pattern from the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper.

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!

Stampin Up hydrangea haven

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.

Stampin Up hydrangea haven

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.

Stampin Up hydrangea haven

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!
