Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Gala Spotlight Technique

Lots of exciting things happening!!!

My 2019 Holiday Catalog Product Share is now available to order.

Also Holiday Catalogs have been ordered.  If you have placed an order from me in the last year, you will automatically be mailed one.

If you have not placed an order with me and do not currently have a demonstrator you order through, just fill out the form at the bottom and I’ll pop one in the mail for you!

Now on to today’s card…

My card starts off with Mango Melody cardstock.  I took a panel of Whisper White cardstock (later to be matted on Basic Black cardstock) and stamped the butterflies from the Butterfly Gala Stamp Set on it in Memento Black ink.

I used the Layering Squares Dies to cut out three squares from it and colored the them in using Daffodil Delight, Mango Melody, and Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut out three scalloped squares from Basic Black cardstock to mat them on and adhered them down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Beauty Abounds Stamp Set in Versamark ink on Basic Black cardstock, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it.

Enjoy!


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

Stampin’ Up! Label Me Pretty Card – HSS320

I can’t even begin to believe it’s almost August.
I’m holding onto summer tightly and still love playing with pretty flowers and sweet birds in my cards.

My card today starts off with Pool Party cardstock which I embossed using my FAVORITE embossing folder, the Subtle EF.

My card was inspired by the latest Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge.  You can get pretty creative with this sketch and I hope you’ll play along with us this week!

Next, I took the polka dot pattern from the Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper and matted a piece of it on Whisper White cardstock.

Underneath it I tucked a Whisper White circle which I cut out using the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I used our super sharp Paper Snips to fussy cut out a bird from the Bird Ballad DSP and adhered him down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Label Me Pretty Stamp Set in Versamark ink on a 2″ piece of Calypso Coral cardstock, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it.  I cut the top of it using the Delightful Tag Topper, wound a piece of White Flax Ribbon through it, and secured it with a staple.

Lastly, I added a few pearls around the card.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Monochromatic Varied Vases Card

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

My card starts off with Rococo Rose cardstock.  I then matted a panel of Whisper White cardstock on Vellum cardstock.

I then adhered a Rococo Rose pattern from the 2019-2021 In-Color Designer Series Paper to the left of the card.

Using Memento Black ink and the Varied Vases Stamp Set, I stamped the three vase outlines on Rococo Rose cardstock, the flower outline on Whisper White cardstock, and the stems directly on the Very Vanilla cardstock in Memento Black ink.  I stamped the solid flower image in Rococo Rose ink.

I cut the vases, flowers, and leaves (from Mossy Meadow cardstock) out using the Vase Builder Punch.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Masking Technique Above the Clouds Card

All bundles are great…
But a bundle with a punch is perfect for quick and easy cards, as well as ideal for beginner stampers.

Today’s card uses the Above the Clouds Bundle, which includes the Hot Air Balloon Punch.  Bundles also save you 10% off which makes it even sweeter.

My card starts off with Pacific Point cardstock.  I took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and first stamped the hot air balloons in Memento Black ink.  This will later get matted on another panel of Whisper White cardstock.

I used the Masking Technique which gives the allusion that one hot air balloon is behind the other.

All you do is first stamp one of the balloons.  Then punch out a hot air balloon from a Post-It Note.  Cover that first balloon with the punched out hot air balloon.  Make sure the paper is not too far over the edge or else you’ll get a white line around the balloon.  Then just stamp the second hot air balloon over the Whisper White/Post-It Note.

I used Pineapple Punch and Bermuda Bay ink to color in the balloons (stamping off first).  Keeping the mask over the balloons, I stamped the clouds around them in Pacific Point ink.  I stamped the banner in Memento Black and stamped the banner image in Lovely Lipstick ink (stamping off first).  I fussy cut it out and adhered it down with mini dimensionals (cutting them in half).

Lastly I stamped the sentiment from the Above the Clouds Stamp Set in Pacific Point ink on Pineapple Punch cardstock and adhered it down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Very Versailles Collage Card

Without even realizing it I’ve been making a lot of monochromatic cards lately…
And even more ironic, and unplanned, is I’ve been using the 2019-2021 In-Colors.

I used Seaside Spray here and Purple Posy here.

Today I feature Terracotta Tile, with neutral touches.

Terracotta Tile cardstock is my card base.

I then started off with a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I used the Very Versailles stamp set and stamped the images in Crumb Cake, Sahara Sand, and Terracotta Tile on it.  I then sponged Crumb Cake ink around the edge of the Whisper White cardstock and matted it on Crumb Cake cardstock.

I used the Butterfly Duet to cut out three butterflies from Terracotta Tile cardstock, adhering them down with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Lastly I stamped the sentiment from the Very Versailles Stamp in Versamark ink on Crumb Cake cardstock, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it.

Enjoy!

Yesterday’s card was monotone and featured one of the new In-Colors, Seaside Spray.

I decided to use the A Little Lace Stamp Set again, but this time feature it with another new In-Color, Purple Posy.

My card starts off with Purple Posy cardstock.  I then matted a Purple Posy pattern from the 2019-2021 In-Color Designer Series Paper on Whisper White cardstock.

I wrapped around it some Purple Posy Scalloped Linen Ribbon and tied a Linen Thread bow at the end of it.  I then stamped the floral image from the A Little Lace Stamp Set in Highland Heather ink on two corners of the DSP.

I stamped the sentiment from the A Little Lace Stamp Set in Highland Heather ink on Purple Posy cardstock and cut it out using the Stitched Rectangle Dies.  Lastly I added a few Purple Posy Faceted Dots.
