I Just Love You Card

I’m pretty excited about tonight’s Facebook Live Tutorial.

I’m going to be making 5 CAS cards using the 5 2018-2020 In-Colors.  I’ll also show you the new ink pads and use them live for you to see!

Swing by 7:00 pm EST, leave a comment live, and I’ll draw a name at the end for someone to receive tonight’s card!

Now on to today’s card…

My card today starts off with Calypso Coral cardstock.  I then tinted some Embossing Paste with Soft Sky ink and shmeered (yes, that’s a word) over a decorative mask using a palette knife onto a panel of Whisper White cardstock.

I’m unbelievably excited about the color revamp coming in the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog, but I’m really going to miss Soft Sky.  ::sniff, sniff::

I matted the Whisper White cardstock on some Soft Sky cardstock and then wrapped a Calypso Coral ribbon over the edge before adhering it all down.  I stamped the flower from the Petal Palette Stamp Set in Memento Ink on Whisper White cardstock and colored it in using Calypso Coral, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers.

Did you know there are currently 12 Stampin’ Blends Combo Markers available?  Better yet, did you know Stampin’ Up! is adding 11 NEW COLOR COMBOS in the Annual Catalog!!!  So exciting.

I cut out the flowers using the Petals & More Thinlits and wound around some Linen Thread which I adhered next to the flowers.  Lastly, I stamped the sentiment in Memento Black Ink on a piece of Vellum paper and cut it out using one of the thinlits from the Petals & More Thinlits Dies.  I added two Calypso Coral Enamel Circles on either side of the sentiment (to hide the adhesive underneath).

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! – Mother’s Day – Petal Palette

This month’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop’s theme is “Feminine.”

I figured with Mother’s Day sort of around the corner, I would take advantage and make a card for the occasion.

My card today starts off with Pink Pirouette cardstock.  I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and matted it on Rich Razzlebery cardstock and adhered it to the card.  Then I took a long pattern from the Tutti-Frutti DSP and adhered it over everything.

I stamped the flower from the Petal Palette Stamp Set in Memento Black ink.  I then used Pink Pirouette, Rich Razzleberry, and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers to color them in.  I cut it out using the coordinating Petals & More Thinlits.  I used the largest circle from the Stitched Shapes Framelits to cut out a stitched circle and then the next smallest circle to cut a hole out of it.  I adhered this first and then the flowers over using Stampin’ Dimensionlas.

I stamped the sentiment from the You’re Inspiring Stamp Set (using the Washi Tape Technique to cover part of the sentiment) in Rich Razzleberry ink.  I adhered this down with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Finally, I added some pearls and a Rich Razzleberry and Pink Pirouette heart around everything.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Petal Palette Card

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

Starting today Stampin’ Up! has added 14 more items to Sale-a-bration.  These are items either in the Occasions and Annual Catalogs and you can see this list here.

I’m using one in my card today – The Petal Pair embossing folder!

My card starts off with another Sale-a-bration item, the Tutti Frutti Cards & Envelopes.  I took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the leaf over it in Pool Party ink (stamping off first).  I matted this on Bermuda Bay cardstock and adhered it to the card.

I took a 2″ panel of Bermuda Bay cardstock and embossed it using the Petal Pair embossing folder.  I stamped the flower image from the Petal Palette Stamp Set in Memento Ink on some Whisper White cardstock and colored it in using Bermuda Bay, Pool Party, and Daffodil Delight Stampin Blends Markers.  I cut it out using the coordinating Petals & More Thinlits.

Before adhering the flowers down with Stampin Dimensionals, I wound some Silver Thread behind it.  I stamped the sentiment in Bermuda Bay ink on Whisper White cardstock to finish it off.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Petal Palette Card

Wednesdays are such a fun day for me.

I have an in-house Stamp Party tomorrow so I’m finalizing things for that…

I send my newsletter out on Wednesdays and there are some fun and important updates in today’s.  If you’d like to receive it, head over here.  I send it out weekly with important updates, offers, news and projects….

And later on tonight I have my Facebook Live Tutorial at 7:30 pm EST and I am really excited about the card.  Watch live and leave a comment of any kind and I’ll draw a name at the end for someone to receive tonight’s card.

To check out past tutorials head over to my YouTube channel.

On to today’s cards…

I created two cards using the same product but with just a few variations.

My card starts off with Berry Burst cardstock.  I then took a small panel of Soft Sky cardstock and embossed it using the Petal Pair Embossing Folder and matted it on Whisper White cardstock.  This folder is really cool because there are two folders in the set, the one I used and then another flowery one.

I stamped the flower image from the Petal Palette Stamp Set in Berry Burst ink on a nearly square Whisper White cardstock.  I matted this on Soft Sky cardstock and wrapped around some Berry Burst ribbon in a bow before adhering it to the card.

I stamped the sentiment from the Petal Palette Stamp Set in Berry Burst ink, cut the end as a banner, and adhered it to the card.  Lastly, I added a few rhinestones around the flower.

For my second variation, I kept things a bit more simple.

But I really believe there’s beauty in simplicity.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Petal Palette

In my Facebook Live tutorial Wednesday night, I shared a thank you card using the NEW Petal Palette Bundle.

If this set isn’t on your wish list for the Occasions Catalog – it needs to be!  It’s a great mixture of beautiful images and sweet sentiments!

For a more inside look at how I made this card and some cute pictures of my (soon to be) 8-year-old copying me check out my Instagram page.

My card starts off with Basic Black cardstock.  I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock on which I stamped the rose image from the Petal Palette stamp set multiple times in Memento Black. ink

I took the Layering Circles Framelits to cut out a circle from the rose stamped paper.  I matted the cardstock with the hole in it on Cherry Cobbler cardstock.  I then used Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive Stampin’ Blend Markers to color the circle in and matted it on a Basic Black scalloped circle.  I cut out a piece of Burlap Ribbon and piece of Mini Gold Sequin to tuck behind the scalloped circle.  I adhered all this down over the hole using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment in Versamark ink on a thin panel of Cherry Cobbler cardstock, sprinkled it with white embossing powder, and heat embossed it.  I stamped the chickadee image on Whisper White cardstock in Memento Black ink.  I colored it in using the Bronze and Ivory Stampin Blend Markers and cut it out using the coordinating Petals & More Thinlits.  I adhered him down using Stampin Dimensionals.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Petal Palette Sympathy

No one ever wants to have to send a sympathy card, but when you do, it might as well be made with love.

Unfortunately I have had to make a sympathy, but my hope is that it brings some comfort to the recipient.

My card starts off with Night of Navy cardstock.  I took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and used the Petal Palette stamp set to stamp a leaf background on it.  I used Pool Party ink, stamping off first for a lighter shade.

I cut out a Pool Party circle from the Stitched Shapes Framelits and layered it with a Vellum leaf cut out from the Petals & More Thinlits.

I cut out a Night of Navy lattice from the Petals & More Thinlits and then stamped the sentiment from the Better Together stamp set in Night of Navy and cut it out using one of the framelits from the Petals & More Thinlits.  I adhered the sentiment using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

For the inside, I stamped the same leaf as the card front (stamping off first) in Pool Party ink and then stamped the sentiment from the Better Together Stamp Set in Night of Navy ink over it.

Enjoy!

My card was inspired by this week’s Sunday Stamps Challenge.

Stampin’ Up! Sneak Peek Petal Palette

All cards are special and made with love…

But every now and then you make a super special one…

You know, the kind that’s almost hard to give away.  That’s today card for me.

You are going to LOVE the new Petal Palette Suite from the 2018 Occasions Catalog!!

Speaking of new product…I’ll be using the brand new Picture Perfect Birthday Stamp Set in my Facebook Live tutorial tonight at 7:30 EST.  Swing by and check out this bright and cheerful birthday card that can work for either a girl or a guy – it’s a win-win!

So back to today’s card, which I…Am…In…Love…With…

I start out with a piece of Watercolor Paper.  I stamped the larger flower cluster in two of the corners and the smaller cluster in the other two corners in Archival Blank Ink.  I also stamped the little chickadee in Archival Black Ink over one of the flowers in Archival Black.

I first colored the images in using the Watercolor Pencils.  The roses were colored in using the Melon Mambo pencil, the leaves in using the Old Olive pencil, and the chickadee in using the Bermuda Bay and Early Espresso pencils.  I then went over the images with an Aqua Painter to smooth out the color.

Next I took an Aqua Painter and Soft Sky ink pad and very lightly colored around the flower images.  I stamped the sentiment from the Petal Pallet stamp set in Archival Blank ink in the center of the card and then matted the Watercolor Paper on Melon Mambo cardstock and then adhered everything to a Soft Sky card.

Enjoy!
