Stampin’ Up! Swirly Frames Card

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

I have had the concept for today’s card in my head since I bought the Swirly Frames Stamp Set back in June.  I was so happy to finally put it together.

My card starts off with Night of Navy cardstock.  I then rubbed it with the Embossing Buddy to get all the static off.  I stamped the large and small circle from the Swirly Frames Stamp Set multiple times in Versamark ink.  I sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder and heat set it.

I then stamped the daisy from the Daisy Delight Stamp Set in Balmy Blue ink and the center in Night of Navy ink.  I cut them out using the Daisy Punch.

Next I stamped the sentiment from the Another Wonderful Year Stamp Set in Night of Navy ink and matted it on Balmy Blue cardstock, adhering it down with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Beauty Abounds – Just a Note

When life gets busy, busy…I tend to stick to clean and simple cards.

After working hard since October, my oldest daughter (12) and her team this past weekend participated in an Odyssey of the Mind competition!  Any fellow OOTM’ers out there?!

Needless to say, we’re all consumed with this right now as they took 1st place and will continue competing.

So quick and simple it was…

My card starts off with Mint Macaron cardstock.  I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and matted it on Soft Sea Foam cardstock.

I used the Beauty Abounds Stamp Set to stamp the small and larger bokeh images in Mossy Meadow, Mint Macaron, and Soft Sea Foam ink a few times in the corner.

I stamped the sentiment from the Butterfly Gala Stamp Set in Versamark ink on Basic Black cardstock, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it.

Lastly I used the Butterfly Beauty Framelits to cut out two butterflies, one from Soft Sea Foam cardstock and the other from Mint Macaron cardstock.

Enjoy!


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

Stampin’ Up! So Hoppy Together Friends

Ready for some cuteness…

Today’s card is all about celebrating friendship.

My card starts off with Pool Party cardstock which I covered using a Pool Party pattern from the Subtles Designer Series Paper.

Next I took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the images from the So Hoppy Together Stamp Set across it in Memento Black ink.  I colored them in using Granny Apple Green, Pool Party, and Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I did a little word surgery using the word “friend” and “miss” from the Well Written Framelits.  I layered the “s” from miss at the end of friend and snipped it off (that way they’d have the same edge) and then glued it down.  I also cut out a few flowers from Flirty Flamingo cardstock and added a few pearls.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! You’re Inspiring Card – Kind Thoughts

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

My card starts off with Old Olive cardstock which I embossed using the Subtle Embossing Folder.

I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the daffodils from the You’re Inspiring Stamp Set on it in Memento Black ink.  I colored them in using Granny Apple Green, Pineapple Punch, and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I then took a sponge and rubbed the edge of the Whisper White cardstock in Pineapple Punch ink.

I mounted the Whisper White cardstock on Pineapple Punch cardstock.  I then adhered a pattern from the 2018-2020 Designer Series Paper pack below the daffodils.

I stamped the sentiment from the You’re Inspiring Stamp Set in Memento Black ink on Pineapple Punch cardstock and tucked underneath it a Pearlized Doily, adhering it down with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Lastly, I added a few Pearls around the daffodils.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Let It Ride Card

Happy Monday everyone!

Thanks so much for checking out my cards this week.
You’re in for a treat – 4 out of my 5 cards use Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I guess saying I really like using them to color is an understatement.

My card today starts off with Very Vanilla cardstock.  Over that I adhered a pattern from the Wood Textures Designer Series paper. and just above that I adhered a bow using Linen Thread.

Next I used the Let It Ride Stamp Set and stamped the horse in Memento Black Ink.  I used Pumpkin Pie and Cajun Craze Stampin’ Blends Markers to color it in.  I used the masking technique to cover the horse and stamp the trees around it in Mossy Meadow ink.

Lastly I stamped the sentiment in Mossy Meadow ink on Crumb Cake cardstock and adhered it using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!

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