Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Friendship Thinking of You Card

All week we’ve been talking about the new 2021-2023 In Colors.

If you missed them, you can find them here Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.

Today’s card uses the new Evening Evergreen and I paired it with the gorgeous Beauty of the Earth Suite, which will be available May 4th.

My card starts off with Soft Suede cardstock which I covered with a pattern from the Beauty of Earth Designer Series Paper.

**This paper is really amazing and is included in my Product Share. Want a sampling of it? Check out my Product Share and get lots of new product for a fraction of the price!!

Stampin Up Beauty Of Friendship Thinking of You Card

I then took a panel of Evening Evergreen cardstock and embossed it with the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder and then matted it on a panel of Basic White cardstock.

Next, I took a panel of Basic White cardstock and stamped the bigger tree image in Evening Evergreen ink, stamping off first. I then stamped the more detailed image in Evening Evergreen ink over it, stamping off first again. I then stamped the trunk in Soft Suede ink, yes, you guessed it, stamping off first. I then matted this on Soft Suede cardstock.

For the other tree, I stamped the bigger tree image in Soft Succulent ink (stamping off first) and then the more detailed tree image in Evening Evergreen ink over it. I stamped the trunk in Soft Suede ink and cut them both out using the Beautiful Trees Dies, adhering them down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Beauty of Friendship Card

I used the same dies to cut out two birds from Bumblebee cardstock. I stamped the sentiment from the Beauty of Friendship Stamp Set in Evening Evergreen ink on Crumb Cake cardstock and cut it out with the Beautiful Trees Dies. Underneath I wound around some Crumb Cake Twine.

*By the way, this twine comes in a variety pack of 5 colors, and is also included in my Product Share!

Stampin’ Up! SNEAK PEEK Simply Succulents Thank You Card

First off – Happy Thanksgiving!!!

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

I am using a brand new bundle for today’s card…The Simply Succulents Bundle…from the 2021 Jan-June Mini Catalog. This will be available to customers beginning Jan 5, 2021.

My card starts off with Sahara Sand cardstock which I embossed using the Dainty Diamonds Embossing Folder.

I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and cut out a rectangle using the Stitched Rectangles Dies. I stamped the pot from the Simply Succulents Stamp Set in Memento Black ink. I colored it in using the Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends Markers.

Underneath it I adhered a Mint Macaron pattern from the Subtles Designer Series Paper.

On a separate piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the succulent image. I had a lot of fun coloring it in using Balmy Blue, Mint Macaron, and Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blends. I adhered this over the post usng Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Simply Succulents Stamp Set in Mint Macaron ink, cutting it out with one of the dies in the bundle. Underneath it, I adhered a piece of Mint Macaron ribbon.

Stampin’ Up! *NEW Press On Card

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

I decided to use the brand new Press On Stamp Set for today’s card.  It’s in the Aug-Dec Mini Catalog and will be available beginning Aug 4th.

My card starts off with Pool Party cardstock which I embossed using the Dainty Diamonds Embossing Folder.

I next took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the coffee beans from the Press On Stamp Set across it in Pool Party cardstock.  I stamped the sentiment in the corner in Just Jade ink and matted this on Crumb Cake cardstock.

I stamped the coffee cup in Memento Black ink and colored it in using Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the coffee cup again on a pattern of Just Jade DSP and fussy cut it out to adhere over the cup.

I stamped the heart in Pacific Point ink and fussy cut it out to adhere over the cup.  I then adhered the cup down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Lastly I added a few Just Jade Enamel Dots to the card.

Stampin’ Up! NEW Celebrate Sunflowers Celebrate You Card

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

This past weekend I went to Facebook to get help for today’s card.  I knew I wanted to use the NEW In Good Taste Designer Series Paper but I wasn’t sure whether to go with the light or dark shade wood.

Well, here’s the final product:

My card starts off with So Saffron cardstock.  I then took a pattern from the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper and matted it on Mango Melody cardstock.

This Designer Series Paper is included in my Product Share, so be sure to check out all the details here.

I then stamped the sunflower from the Celebrate Sunflowers Stamp Set in Mango Melody ink on So Saffron cardstock.  I cut it out and a Mango Melody sunflower outline using the Sunflowers Dies.

I stamped the leaves in Old Olive ink on Old Olive cardstock and then cut them out, as well as leaf outlines from Old Olive cardstock to adhere over them.  I adhered the leaves under the flower and then adhered everything down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Lastly I stamped the sentiment from the Celebrate Sunflowers in Old Olive ink.  I cut out the “let’s” and then fussy cut the “celebrate you.”  I wound around some Linen Thread under the sentiment and adhered them down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Flowers for Every Season Sunflower Card

If you’ve followed my blog for a bit now you’ll know I love simple cards.

I don’t think it takes much to make a pretty card and today all it took was Designer Series Paper, embossed cardstock, a sweet embellishment, and a fun sentiment.

My card starts off with Misty Moonlight cardstock (NEW 2020-2022 In Color) which I embossed with the NEW Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder.

I used the Stitched Rectangles Dies to cut out a pattern from the NEW Flowers for Every Season Designer Series Paper.

This DSP is included in my Product Share, along with all the new paper.  Check out all the details here on how you can get a sampling of all the new Designer Series Paper and more!

I matted the DSP on Bumblebee cardstock (another NEW 2020-2022 In Color) and then again on Whisper White cardstock.  I then added two Bumblebee Enamel Dots under the cardstock.

Lastly I stamped the sentiment from the Under My Umbrella Stamp Set in Versamark ink on Bumblebee cardstock, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it.  I cut it out using the Stitched Rectangles Dies and adhered it down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!


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

Stampin’ Up! Sneak Peek Forever Greenery Suite – Two Cards

Wednesday I shared with you a card I made using brand new product from the Forever Greenery Suite.

I made that card live the week before, but I also showed two other cards, which I wanted to share with you today.

Both cards use product from this gorgeous Forever Greenery Suite and will be available June 3rd.  The Designer Series Paper and ribbon are included in my Product Share, so be sure to check that out.

The first card starts off with Pretty Peacock cardstock.  I adhered a pattern from the Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper (which is gorgeous by the way) to the left of the card.

I then stamped one of the ferns in two corners of a Whisper White panel in Pear Pizzazz ink and the smaller one in Pretty Peacock ink and then matted this on Pear Pizzazz cardstock.  I adhered this down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I then stamped the sentiment from the Forever Fern Stamp Set in Pretty Peacock ink on Pear Pizzazz cardstock and adhered this down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Lastly, I added a Very Vanilla bow using ribbon from the Forever Greenery Trim Pack.

For my second card I wanted to show off the dies.

My card starts off with Thick Whisper White cardstock.  I then matted a pattern from the Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper on Pretty Peacock cardstock.

I used the Forever Flourishing Dies to cut out one fern from Pretty Peacock cardstock and the other from Just Jade (a new In Color) cardstock.  I also stamped one of the ferns in Pear Pizzazz ink and the other in Soft Sea Foam ink and cut them out using the same dies.

I stamped the sentiment from the Forever Fern Stamp Set in Pretty Peacock ink on Just Jade cardstock and cut it out using the Stitched Rectangles Dies.  Underneath I wound some gold thread from the Forever Greenery Trim Pack.

Lastly, I added a few Just Jade Enamel Dots over the Designer Series Paper.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! NEW Celebrate Sunflowers Thanks Card

Today I’m using another brand new bundle from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog…the Celebrate Sunflowers Bundle.

It will be available beginning June 3rd.

Be sure to head over to my Facebook page once you’ve received your catalog.  Look for my selfie with my catalog and post a selfie of you with yours in the comments.  I’ll do a random giveaway!

My card starts off with the new Cinnamon Cider cardstock.  This is a new 2020-2022 In Color and it’s beautiful!  I then wrapped around some Very Vanilla ribbon from the Forever Greenery pack in the corner.

I matted a Cinnamon Cider pattern from the 2020-2022 In Color Designer Series Paper on Whisper White cardstock.  I then layered over the Very Vanilla ribbon a piece of Cinnamon Cider ribbon.  Above the DSP, I stamped the sentiment from the Celebrate Sunflowers Stamp Set in Versamark ink, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it.

I stamped the sunflower and leaves from the Celebrate Sunflowers Stamp Set in Memento Black ink.  I colored them in using Daffodil Delight and Mango Melody (sunflower), Soft Suede (center of flower), and Old Olive (leaves) Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut them out, as well as a few leaf outlines using the coordinating Sunflowers Dies.

I adhered the flower down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!
