Stampin’ Up! Floral Essence Mother’s Day Card

I just love me a good sketch challenge.

I find participating in challenges helps spring on creativity and this week’s Hand Stamped Sentiments sketch challenge is a good one.  I can’t wait to see what you create with it.

My card starts off with Mango Melody cardstock which I covered with a pattern from the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper (retiring and available while supplies last).  To the right I adhered a Mango Melody pattern from the Brights Designer Series Paper (also retiring).

I then made two flowers using the Floral Essence Stamp Set and coordinating Perennial Flower Punch (available June 4th).  I stamped the flowers, one in Mango Melody ink and the other in the same, but this time stamped off first for a softer look.

To see how I made these flowers bigger and fluffier, check out my Instagram page.

I stamped the leaves from the same Floral Essence stamp set in Old Olive ink and cut them out with the coordinating Leaf Punch.  In the middle of the flowers I adhered the new Perennial Essence Floral Centers which are so fun and add lots of texture to the card.

Lastly I stamped the sentiment from the Forever Lovely Stamp Set in Old Olive ink.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Lots of Pink Mother’s Day Card

Today’s card was very specifically made with someone in mind…
My grandma.

My grandma loves pink…always has and she loves flowers…always has, so I made this Mother’s Day card for her.

My card starts off with Thick Whisper White cardstock which I layered with a Flirty Flamingo pattern from the Brights Designer Series Paper.

I took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the floral image from the All That You Are Stamp Set in Memento Black Ink.  I colored it in using Flirty Flamingo and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I then used the Be Mine Dies to cut out a heart from the flower image.  I adhered underneath it two hearts which I cut out from Whisper White cardstock so it would be lifted.

I then used the Well Written Dies and cut out two Whisper White and one Flirty Flamingo “happy” sentiments which I adhered right over each other.  I stamped the “Mother’s Day” from the Well Said Stamp Set which I stamped in Flirty Flamingo ink on Whisper White cardstock.  I used the same Be Mine Dies again to cut out a scalloped stitched piece of Flirty Flamingo cardstock.

Lastly I added some rhinestones and a few Share What You Love Artisan Pearls.  I also wound around some Flirty Flamingo ribbon to go next to the sentiment.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Daisy Lane Smile Card

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

My card today starts off with Sahara Sand cardstock.  I used the new Daisy Lane Stamp Set and stamped the fern image in Sahara Sand ink over it.

I used the Stitched Rectangle Dies and cut a larger one out of Highland Heather cardstock and a smaller one out of Whisper White cardstock.  On the Whisper White one, I stamped the “Smile” in Highland Heather ink and then adhered some burlap under it.

I used the Daisy Lane Stamp Set and stamped the stem in Pear Pizzazz ink and fussy cut it out.  I stamped the petals in Highland Heather ink and cut them out using the Daisy Punch.  I used a Sahara Sand Write Marker to color in the center of the flower.

I fluffed the petals using a bone folder and adhered it down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Free As A Bird Congratulations Card

I recently had to make a congratulations card for a team member and decided to use the gorgeous new Bird Ballad Suite from the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.

It includes the Free As A Bird Stamp Set, Stitched Nested Labels Dies, and Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper.

The Bird Ballad DSP is gorgeous!!  It’s included, along with all the other new DSP, in my Product Share.  For more details on my Product Share, check below.

My card starts off with Coastal Cabana Cardstock.  I then matted a pattern from the Bird Ballad DSP on Whisper White cardstock.

Next I stamped the bird image from the Free As A Bird Stamp Set in Memento Black ink on Whisper White cardstock.  I colored it in using Petal Pink (birds), Pool Party (leaves), Poppy Parade (flowers), and Crumb Cake (branch) Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut it out using the new (and in my opinion, must-have) Stitched Nested Labels Dies.

I stamped the sentiment from the Little Elephant Stamp Set in Versamark ink on Poppy Parade cardstock.  I sprinkled it with white embossing powder and heat set it.

Enjoy!


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

Stampin’ Up! Best Catch Father’s Day Card

I’ve said it lots of times…and I’ll keep saying it…
I love the Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I am not a huge watercolor-er, but I find the blends to be very forgiving and user-friendly.  And when you’re unsure how to color something – just check the catalog!

That’s what I used to color my fish today.

My card starts off with Crumb Cake cardstock.  I then stamped the “Father’s Day” from the Well Said Stamp Set and the fisherman image from the Best Catch Stamp Set in Crumb Cake ink on the card front.

I then cut a panel of Mossy Meadow cardstock and embossed it using the Pinewood Planks embossing folder.  I adhered a piece of Burlap across the front of it.

I then stamped the fish from the Best Catch Stamp Set in Memento Black ink and colored it in using Stampin’ Blends Markers (Crumb Cake, Pool Party, Granny Apple Green, Calypso Coral).  I cut it out using the coordinating Catch of the Day Dies.

Lastly I stamped the “Happy Father’s Day” from the Well Said Stamp Set in Mossy Meadow ink on Whisper White cardstock.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Bloom By Bloom Birthday Card

The Bloom By Bloom Stamp Set and the Dot to Dot Embossing Folder are a match made in heaven.

They both are retiring, so you’re going to want to grab them while you can!

My card starts off with Mint Macaron cardstock which I embossed using the Dot to Dot Embossing Folder.

I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the dot image from the Bloom By Bloom Stamp Set on it in Balmy Blue, Mint Macaron, and Blushing Bride ink.  I then matted this on Whisper White cardstock.

I stamped the flower image from the Bloom By Bloom Stamp Set on a separate piece of Whisper White cardstock, the petal in Blushing Bride ink and stem in Mint Macaron.  I fussy cut this out and adhered it down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Lastly I stamped the sentiment from the Itty Bitty Birthdays Stamp Set in Mint Macaron ink and adhered it down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! *NEW Good Morning Magnolia Video Tutorial

When I tell you the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog is amazing, I kid you not.

The Magnolia Lane Suite caught my eye right away in the catalog, but when I got my hands on it, I was even more impressed!

This is a suite that you NEED, trust me!

My card today uses the Good Morning Magnolia Stamp Set and coordinating dies.  It will be available beginning June 4th.  Even better yet, join as a demonstrator and be able to preorder it May 2nd!

This is the card that I made for my last week’s Facebook Live Tutorial.  I had so much fun showing how I made it (and three other cards I made using the suite).

Please note that I am away on vacation with my family right now so will not be live tonight!  I will be back next week at 7:30 pm Wednesday night.

To watch the Facebook Live Tutorial and see how I created this card and get a peek at the other cards I made, check out the video below:
