Stampin’ Up! Under My Umbrella It’s Your Day Card

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

My card today starts off with Lovely Lipstick cardstock.

I next took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the raindrops on it in Mint Macaron ink and then matted it on Basic Black cardstock.

I next stamped the umbrella and flowers in Memento Black ink on Whisper White cardstock.  I colored them in using Mint Macaron (umbrella, leaves), Pink Petal (flower), Lovely Lipstick (other flower) Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I cut the umbrella and handle out using the Umbrella Builder Punch and fussy cut out the flowers, cascading them down from the umbrella.

Lastly I stamped the sentiment from the Under My Umbrella Stamp Set in Versamark ink on Basic Black cardstock, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it.  I then cut it out with the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.

Enjoy!


Today’s card was inspired by this week’s Global Design Project challenge.

Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Friendship Birthday Card

I love creating cards with specific people in mind.
It means I can customize them specifically to that person’s likes and personality.

Today’s card is one I created for a dear friend’s birthday.  She loves bright pink, flowers, and bling…this is what I created…

My card starts off with Lovely Lipstick cardstock.  I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the flowers from the To A Wild Rose in Lovely Lipstick ink (stamping off for the lighter shade) and the leaves around it in Mossy Meadow ink (stamping off for the lighter shade).

I did the same on a separate piece of Whisper White cardstock and cut it out using the Wild Rose Dies.  I adhered it down using Stampin’ Dimensionals and then stamped the sentiment from the To A Wild Rose Stamp Set next to it in Lovely Lipstick ink.

I matted this on Vellum and tied a Lovely Lipstick ribbon next to the flowers.  Lastly, I added a few rhinestones.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Free Kerchief Card Kit

I’m all for designing cards from scratch.  I love the creative process of starting with white cardstock and going from there.

But it’s also nice to have a kit that is all designed and ready for assembly…and is just as beautiful.

Can it get any better?  Yes of course…when the kit is FREE!!!

Today’s cards are from the Kerchief Card Kit from the Sale-A-Bration Catalog and are free with a qualifying order of $50+.

It has two designs of cards featuring beautiful designer paper, sweet sentiments, and fun embellishments.  The kit includes four of each of the two designs, so you get eight pre-designed cards ready for quick and easy assembly.

This is a great kit to get during Sale-A-Bration through March 31st or while supplies last.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Witty-Cisms Graduation Card

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

My card today starts off with Basic Black cardstock.  I then cut another panel of Basic Black cardstock and embossed it using the Corrugated Embossing Folder.

Next I took panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the congratulations from the Delightful Day Stamp Set in Memento Black ink across the front, sometimes not re-inking in order to get a lighter shade.

I then matted this on Gold Foil and wrapped a Basic Black knot around it.

I stamped the “you did it” from the Witty-Cisms Stamp Set in Memento Black ink and cut it out using the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I then used the Layering Squares Dies to cut out a scalloped Basic Black square and Gold square to layer underneath it.

I then lastly added a few sequins from the Peaceful Poppies Sequins to the one corner.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Painted Poppies A Little Something Card

Stampin’ Up!’s Designer Series Paper has always been a favorite of mine.

It makes card making really easy and let’s face it – the paper is beautiful!!

I put out a question on my Facebook page last weekend as to which combination of patterns to use from the Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper and the purple combination was the clear winner!

Today’s card starts off with Thick Whisper White cardstock.  I then took two patterns from the Peaceful Poppies DSP and matted it on Whisper White cardstock.

Next I used the Poppy Moments Dies to cut out a flower from Rich Razzleberry and Basic Black cardstock.  Next to it I used the Leaf Punch to cut out a few leaves from Old Olive cardstock.

I added a Rich Razzleberry banner underneath the DSP panel and stamped the sentiment form the Sending You Thoughts Stamp Set in Rich Razzleberry ink.

Enjoy!


Today’s card is part of this week’s new Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge.  It’s a great sketch with lots of layering, so be sure to play along with us this week!

Stampin’ Up! Honey Bee Quick and Simple Card

The Honey Bee Bundle was one that immediately caught my eye in the 2020 January-June Mini Catalog.

The bees are so cute and I think they can cover a wide range of occasions and work great for cards with lots of layers, as well as simple cards, such as today’s.

My card today starts off with Mango Melody cardstock which I cut 4-1/4″x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″.

I cut a 4″x 4″ Whisper White panel and used the honeycomb die from the Detailed Bee Dies and cut through the Whisper White panel and Mango Melody card front.   I stamped the honeycomb from the Honey Bee Stamp Set in Crushed Curry ink and cut it out using the same die, which I adhered on the inside of the card.

I stamped the bee and stamp set in Memento Black.  I colored the bee in using Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends Markers and cut it out using the same dies.  I also used the same dies to cut out a couple of hearts from Basic Black cardstock.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Under My Umbrella Hello Card

Happy Friday!!!

I don’t know about you, but I’m looking forward to a relaxing weekend (hopefully filled with some stamping) and a fun Super Bowl Sunday (for those in the US).

My card today starts off Balmy Blue cardstock, on which I adhered a Balmy Blue pattern from the Subtles Designer Series Paper.

Next I used the Stitched So Sweetly Dies to cut out a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the raindrops from the Under My Umbrella Stamp Set in Balmy Blue ink all around across the front.

In the bottom right hand corner I stamped the sentiment (using the Washi Tape technique so as only to stamp the “hello”) in Poppy Parade ink.

I stamped the boots, umbrella, flowers, and handle in Memento Black ink on a separate Whisper White cardstock.  I colored them in using Poppy Parade, Granny Apple Green, and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I cut the umbrella and handle out with the coordinating Umbrella Builder Punch and the flowers and boots I fussy cut out.

Lastly under the scalloped rectangle, I tied around a Poppy Parade Bow.

Enjoy!

I next used the Painted Labels Dies to cut out a Whisper White circle.  I fussy cut out a toucan from the Birthday Bonanza DSP and adhered it over the circle using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Itty Bitty Birthday Stamp Set in Versamark ink on Bermuda Bay cardstock, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it.  Underneath that I used the same dies to cut out a scalloped edge from Daffodil Delight cardstock.

Lastly I added a Daffodil Delight Ribbon next to the sentiment.
