Stampin’ Up! SNEAK PEEK Gorgeous Leaves Thank You Card

There’s nothing like new product.

The only hard part is deciding what to use first. But leaves and pumpkins are my favorite so the new Gorgeous Leaves Bundle was one of the first I pulled out.

It will be available beginning Aug 3rd when the 2021 July-Dec Mini Catalog goes live!

Stampin’ Up! SNEAK PEEK Gorgeous Leaves Card

I thought it was perfect for this week’s “Outdoors” theme. The card starts off with Early Espresso cardstock, on which I adhered an Early Espresso pattern from the Neutrals Designer Series Paper.

May be an image of outdoors, tree and text that says 'Happy Inkin Thursday Blog Hop July 15 Theme Challenge Outdoors Outdo'

Next I used the Stitched Rectangles Dies to cut out a panel from Very Vanilla cardstock. I stamped the wood grain from the Gorgeous Leaves on it in Early Espresso ink, stamping off first.

Next I used the Intricate Leaves Dies and cut out three leaves from the Brushed Metallic Cardstock. At the bottom I wound around some Gold Fine Art Ribbon.

Around the leaves I adhered a couple of Gold Dots from the Brushed Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dots, which will also be available beginning Aug 3rd.

Lastly, I stamped the sentiment from the Inspired Thoughts Stamp Set in Early Espresso ink and cut it out with the same Stitched Rectangles Dies.

Stampin’ Up! Create with Friends Card

Summer to means bright, fun colors and time with amazing friends!

For this month’s Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop, I used the Create with Friends and Butterfly Brilliance Stamps to “celebrate summer.”

Stampin’ Up! Create with Friends Card

I pulled inspiration for the colors from the Pattern Party Designer Series Paper.

This is a HUGE pack of designer paper that you can get for free when you buy/or host a party of $180.

Stampin’ Up! Create with Friends Card

I did a really fun shadow technique with the sentiment which was so easy but I’m a bit obsessed with how it looks! It’s a really easy technique that I learned from Alisa Tilsner.

Stampin’ Up! Create with Friends Card

I made this card today on my YouTube Channel showing you exactly how to do the shadow technique with other tips and tricks.

Stampin’ Up! All Things Fabulous Amazing Card

If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.

That’s how the phrase goes.
So when I pulled out the All Things Fabulous Stamp Set I remembered this card that I made here, which I absolutely loved.

I decided to just flip things around a bit, keep with the same basic colors, and swap out some of the paper.

Stampin’ Up! All Things Fabulous Card

My card starts out with Fresh Freesia cardstock, which I covered with a Fresh Freesia pattern from the 2021-2023 In Color Designer Series Paper.

Stampin’ Up! All Things Fabulous Card

I then took the beautiful lattice die (that’s what I’m calling it) from the Fabulous Florals Dies and cut out a Fresh Freesia detail from the 2021-2023 In Color Shimmer Velum. I then adhered this over a panel of Basic White cardstock.

Next I created my flowers using the All Things Fabulous Stamp Set and Fresh Freesia and Soft Succulent ink. This stamp uses multistep stamping to create multiple layers of color.

You can see some tricks and tips for using this stamp in this video here.

Stampin’ Up! All Things Fabulous Card

I stamped the amazing from the Create with Friends Stamp Set in Memento Black ink and fussy cut a bubble around it. I shared how I did this in my weekly Tips & Tricks email. If you missed it, you can sign up for it here and I’ll include it in this coming week’s email too.

Stampin' Up! Sweet Ice Cream You Card

I tied a Silver Trim bow underneath the sentiment and added a few rhinestones and epoxy elements around.

Stampin’ Up! Patriotic Thank You Card

This week’s Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop is a theme challenge: Punch It. Have fun hopping through and seeing what everyone’s created this week!

I decided to do a patriotic thank you card.

This card and I struggled a bit. There was a moment of – This just isn’t working (or looking good). Did you see this post?

Well, the card and I made up and worked through our differences, and I really like how it came out.

4 of 9 Stampin’ Up! Sweet Ice Cream Patriotic Card

My card starts off with Thick Basic White cardstock.

4 of 9 Stampin’ Up! Sweet Ice Cream Patriotic Card

I then took a panel of Vellum and embossed it using the Checks & Dots Embossing folder. It’s a mini embossing folder, so it didn’t cover the complete piece of Vellum.

I couldn’t done a technique that I shared here (fast forward to minute 11), but was feeling lazy and left it as is.

4 of 9 Stampin’ Up! Sweet Ice Cream Patriotic Card

I then used the Ice Cream Builder Punch and cut out scoops from Poppy Parade, Misty Moonlight, and Basic White cardstock. I cut the cone out of Crumb Cake cardstock. I adhered one over the other and adhered them down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

4 of 9 Stampin’ Up! Sweet Ice Cream Patriotic Card

I stamped the sentiment from the Sweet Ice Cream Stamp Set in Misty Moonlight ink on a Basic White panel and cut it out with the Stitched Rectangles Dies.

Stampin' Up! Sweet Ice Cream You Card

Underneath it I wound around some Silver Trim, which I am currently obsessed with and keep using over and over, and also added a couple of Red Rhinestones over the white scoop.

Stampin’ Up! Sweet as a Peach Birthday Card

Birthday cards are probably the most sent cards. There are always plenty of birthdays coming up that need a card.

This month’s Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop theme is “birthday.” Have fun hopping through the blogs getting lots of inspiration!!

Stampin’ Up! Sweet as a Peach Birthday Card

My card starts off with Polished Pink cardstock which I cut 8-1/2 x 4-1/4 and scored at 4-1/4 for a square card. I embossed the front using the Pretty Flowers Embossing Folder.

Stampin’ Up! Sweet as a Peach Birthday Card

I then used the Hippo & Friends Dies and cut out a Basic White label. I stamped the sentiment from the Sweet as a Peach Stamp Set in Polished Pink ink.

Stampin’ Up! Sweet as a Peach Birthday Card

I stamped the branch from the Sweet as a Peach Stamp Set in Evening Evergreen ink, the flowers in Polished Pink ink (including the little centers), and then cut it out with the Peach Dies. I adhered it down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
