Stampin’ Up! Whale Done Just a Note Card

Stampin’ Up!’s Designer Series Paper was my first love.

I love the patterns, I love how easy they make designing a card, I love how they’re all color coordinated.

And I really like how you can mix and match patterns and even fussy cut out images to coordinate with them as I did with today’s card.

My card starts off with Thick Whisper White cardstock.

I then took two patterns from the Whale of a Time Designer Series Paper.  I matted one on Pretty Peacock cardstock and the other on Just Jade cardstock.

Next I took another pattern from the Whale of a Time DSP and fussy cut out the two whales, adhering them down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Butterfly Gala Stamp Set in Pretty Peacock ink and added a few Just Jade Enamel Dots next to it.

Enjoy!


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

Stampin’ Up! Ridiculously Quick and Easy Birthday Card

My son turned 12 last week.

Making a card for his birthday wasn’t easy.

He’s not young enough to want cutesy cards and he’s a boy so he doesn’t want frills but he still deserves a great card.  I also always decorate the house and use the same colors for his card so I worked with Granny Apple Green and Pacific Point.

I went with a ridiculously clean and simple card.

My card starts off with Pacific Point cardstock.

I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the circle from the Swirly Frames Stamp Set in Pacific Point ink and the square in Granny Apple Green ink.  I then matted this on Granny Apple Green cardstock.

I stamped the sentiment from the Many Mates Stamp Set in Versamark ink on Granny Apple Green cardstock.  I sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder and heat set it.  I adhered it down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

And there you have it.  Probably the quickest card I’ve ever designed, but he loved it and that’s all that matters.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Tasteful Touches Hello Card

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

My card starts off with Gray Granite cardstock.

I took a pattern from the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper and matted it on Whisper White cardstock.

I stamped the leaf from the Tasteful Touches Stamp Set in Crumb Cake ink (after stamping off twice) on Whisper White cardstock.  Over it I stamped the sentiment in Night of Navy ink.  I then cut it out using the Stitched Shapes Dies.

I adhered this down using Stampin’ Dimensionals and added a few Pearls around the sentiment.

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

This month’s Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop theme is “Birthday.”  Have fun seeing what everyone created this week.

I love the new 2020-2022 In Colors.

If you’re not familiar, every June Stampin’ Up! introduces five new colors that will be around for two years.

This year’s colors are Magenta Madness, Just Jade, Misty Moonlight, Bumblebee, and Cinnamon Cider.  I decided to use them together for my card today.

My card starts off with Thick Whisper White cardstock.  I then adhered a small pattern of Misty Moonlight from the 2020-2022 In Color Designer Series Paper and then a panel of Misty Moonlight cardstock to the left of the card.

I stamped the umbrella from the Under My Umbrella Stamp Set in Memento Black ink on Magenta Madness, Just Jade, Misty Moonlight, and Bumblebee cardstock.  I cut them out and the handles from Basic Black cardstock using the Umbrella Builder Punch.

I stamped the sentiment from the Under My Umbrella Stamp Set in Versamark ink on Basic Black cardstock.  I sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder and heat set it.  I cut it out using the Tasteful Labels Dies and adhered it down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Flowers for Every Season Note Card

With the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog now live, there are so many new goodies to play with!!

Today I’m playing with the Jar of Flowers Bundle and Flowers for Every Season Designer Series Paper.

My card starts off with Thick Whisper White cardstock.  To the left I adhered down two strips of patterns from the Flowers for Every Season Designer Series Paper and a strip of Bumblebee cardstock.  I adhered these down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I used the Stitched Nested Labels Dies to cut out a Just Jade piece.  I loved how Amy did it on her card the other day and wound around some Just Jade ribbon on it.

I stamped the jar from the Jar of Flowers Stamp Set in Bumblebee ink and cut it out using the Jar Punch.  I stamped the lid in Bumblebee ink and fussy cut it out.  I adhered the jar over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Butterfly Gala Stamp Set in Just Jade ink in the corner.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Birds & Branches Baby Card Video Tutorial

Maybe I have summer brain already or maybe I was so stinking excited for the new Annual Catalog, but today’s card should’ve been posted Wednesday.

It was last week’s Facebook live tutorial.  So please know, I will not be going live tonight.  This is simply the card from last week’s live video.

For today’s card, I used the sweet new Birds & Branches Bundle.  The lovely Lace Embossing Folder carried over and I thought it worked perfectly with the design.

In the video, I switched up the sentiment and made just a general “hello” card and I think either works nicely.  If you kept it as a baby card, you could easily swap out the Petal Pink for Balmy Blue for a boy.

If you ever miss any of my tutorials, you can check them out on my YouTube channel.

Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers Mini Cards

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

I’ve seen other demos use the new Celebrate Sunflowers Stamp Set and stamp on multiple colors at once.  I loved the look so decided to make a very simple square card doing the same.

My card starts off with Old Olive cardstock.

I then cut out 2″ squares from Bumblebee, Old Olive, and Early Espresso ink.  I matted them on a panel of Gold Foil and stamped the sunflower from the Celebrate Sunflowers Stamp Set on it in Early Espresso ink.

I used some Linen Thread to tie a bow around the card.

Lastly I stamped the sentiment from the To A Wild Rose Stamp Set in Early Espresso ink and fussy cut it out.  I adhered it down with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I wanted to keep with the same idea but cut up the cardstock panels a little differently.  This time I matted them on Whisper White cardstock and wound around the Linen Thread under the sentiment.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! A Kit in Color Paper Pumpkin

My family and I have really been enjoying the Paper Pumpkin monthly subscription lately.

We finally put it together and all three of my kids pitched in.  It’s a fun activity that we can do as a family…and it’s also a great way for the kids to give back as they enjoy picking who we mail the cards to.

The May kit, “A Kit in Color,” was very bright with super fun sentiments.

It came in a very bright, cheerful box…

…with all the makings for 12 cards in total, 4 each of 3 designs.  It included everything needed for the projects from paper to embellishments, ink, and even envelopes, all beautifully color coordinated.

Here’s the first card….

the second…

and the third was a notecard size.

June’s upcoming Paper Pumpkin kit is a “Box of Sunshine.”  It will have the makings for 8 cards and envelopes (2 cards of 4 designs).

Although the actual project is a surprise, we do know the coordinating colors are Basic Black, Bumblebee, Crushed Curry, Poppy Parade, Shaded Spruce, White, and Gold.

The “Box of Sunshine” includes extra pieces and stickers (including a sticker label) to help you create cards AND a Box of Sunshine filled with treats and goodies to send to a friend. (Treats not included.)

You have until June 10th to sign up for the June Paper Pumpkin kit.

You can cancel your subscription at any time, as well as opt out of a specific month.

Stampin’ Up! Quick and Easy Forever Fern Hello Card

This Wednesday you’ll finally be able to get your hands on this beautiful suite from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog, the Forever Greenery Suite.

My card today is a simple card that easily could be a #simplestamping card if you left off the embossed background.

It starts off with Mint Macaron cardstock which I embossed using the NEW Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder.

I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the various leaves from the Forever Fern Stamp Set in Pear Pizzazz, Mint Maracron, and Mossy Meadow ink.  I then matted this on another panel of Whisper White cardstock.

To be honest with you, I had originally stamped the “hello” straight onto the same panel above the leaves, but I stamped it crooked…oops.  So I stamped it separately in Mossy Meadow ink and adhered it over my oops using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!


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