Stampin’ Up! Heartfelt Valentine’s Day Card

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

For my card today I decided to combine some items from the Annual Catalog, January-June Mini Catalog, and Sale-A-Bration Catalog.

My card starts off with Real Red cardstock.  I thought the Lily Pad Dies sort of looked like hearts, so I cut out three of them, one from Real Red, Flirty Flamingo, and Whisper White cardstock.

Next I stamped the sentiment from the Heartfelt Stamp Set in Real Red ink.  I cut it out using the Stitched Be Mine Dies.

The die separates a stitched scalloped heart from a regular heart, but I wanted to use both, so I placed Stampin’ Dimensionals along the seam where the two meet in order to get them to stay connected.

I then added a Real Red bow next to the sentiment.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Witty-Cisms Taco Birthday Card

My youngest daughter just turned 10 this past week.

With my kids’ birthdays, I always decorate the house (in whatever their favorite colors are at the time) and I also make their birthday card to coordinate with it.

My youngest’s favorite colors right now are black and red and she is obsessed with tacos!  So I knew the Witty-Cisms Stamp Set would be perfect for her card.

But I also knew I wanted to stamp the taco a bunch of times and in order to make it easier and quicker (as opposed to using the washi tape technique) I decided to cut up the solid stamp into three pieces.

My card starts off with Thick Whisper White cardstock.

Next I took a panel of Real Red cardstock and stamped the taco all over the front of it in Real Red ink.  I then matted this on Basic Black cardstock.

I stamped the taco three times in Memento Black ink on Whisper White cardstock and colored it in using Mango Melody, Light Soft Suede, and Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I used the Layering Circle Dies to cut out Basic Black scalloped circles and to cut out the tacos.

Lastly, I stamped the sentiments from the Witty-Cisms Stamp Set in Memento Black ink.

Enjoy!

Happy New Year’s Eve everyone!!!

2019 was a great year and I can’t wait to see what 2020 brings.  Have fun and stay safe!!

My card today starts off with Crumb Cake cardstock.  I then took another panel of Crumb Cake cardstock and embossed it using the Subtle Embossing Folder.

I then cut a panel of Whisper White cardstock using the Stitched Rectangles Dies.  I cut it out full size and then moved the die down a bit and ran it through again to make the rectangle smaller.  I then matted this on Basic Gray cardstock.

I stamped the You Always Deliver Images on Whisper White cardstock in Memento Black ink and colored them in using Light Soft Suede (clothes, hat), Dark Soft Suede (pant stripe, shoes, bag), Smokey Slate (packages), Ivory (skin), Bronze (hair, mustache), Light Crumb Cake (dog), Dark Crumb Cake (dog spot) Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I then fussy cut each image out and adhered them down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Lastly I stamped the sentiment in Memento Black ink, covering the bottom words with Washi Tape so I only stamped “thank you.”

Enjoy!


Today’s card was inspired by this week’s Sunday Stamps Challenge.  Although I didn’t necessary stick with the neutral colors they provided, I did stick to neutral colors.
