Stampin’ Up! A Little Lace Card

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

My card starts off with Thick Whisper White cardstock.  I then used the Stitched Lace Dies to cut out a beautiful piece of paper lace from Whisper White cardstock.

Next I took a panel of Terracotta Tile cardstock and stamped the image from the A Little Lace Stamp Set over it four times in Versamark ink.  I sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder and heat set it.  Under this I adhered down a piece of Gray Granite cardstock.

I cut out a Whisper White circle using the Stitched Shapes Framelits and stamped the sentiment from the Country Home Stamp Set on it in Terracotta Tile ink.

Underneath the sentiment I added a piece of Gray Granite ribbon and also added a Terracotta Tile Faceted Gem next to the sentiment.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Painted Harvest Wreath Card

This month’s Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop theme is “Fall Frenzy.”  Have fun hopping through the different blogs to see how everyone interpreted it.

The colors for today’s card were inspired by the new Hand Stamped Sentiment color challenge.  It’s a fun one so be sure to play along!

Just a heads up: I must’ve read the challenge quickly and used Sahara Sand instead of Soft Suede.  Oops.

My card starts off with Cherry Cobbler cardstock.  I then layered Whisper White cardstock on Sahara Sand cardstock.

Next I used the Leaf Punch and cut out a whole bunch of leaves from Pretty Peacock, Cherry Cobbler, and Sahara Sand cardstock and arranged them as a wreath.  I stamped the sentiment from the Painted Harvest Stamp Set in Pretty Peacock ink.

Lastly I added a few Pretty Peacock Faceted Dots and a Linen Thread bow.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! One Design, Two Cards

I have two cards for you today.

The same design, but different colors.
Be sure to let me know which you like more in the comments.

My first card starts off with Calypso Coral cardstock.

I took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the Buffalo Check stamp on it in Calypso Coral ink.  I used a dauber to apply the ink to the stamp so that it only covered a section of the stamp.  I then matted this on So Saffron cardstock.

I cut out a bunch (probably 8) petals from the So Saffron Vellum using the Perennial Flower Punch and adhered them over one another.  I added a Perennial Essence Floral Center to it.

I stamped the sentiment from the Tropical Chic Stamp Set in Calypso Coral ink and adhered it using Stampin’ Dimensionals

The second card is the same design, but the flower is made from regular Vellum cardstock and the  Buffalo Check was stamped on Petal Pink cardstock.

This sentiment came from the Butterfly Gala stamp set.

Enjoy!


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

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.

I stamped the sentiment from the Varied Vases stamp set directly underneath the vases in Mossy Meadow ink and tied a Linen Thread bow around the one vase.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Neutral Colors Sea of Textures Card

Today finishes up a series of cards that I created based on colors my three children picked for me.

My oldest daughter picked colors and I made this card, and then I made this card based on my youngest daughter’s colors.

My 11-year-old son picked Early Espresso, Basic Gray, and Smoky Slate.  Phew, these were hard for me as I never solely use neutral colors.  But I was up for the challenge.

My card starts off with Basic Gray cardstock.

I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the net from the Sea of Textures Stamp Set in Early Espresso ink on it.  I then matted it on Early Espresso cardstock.

I stamped the octopus from the Sea of Textures Stamp Set in Basic Gray ink.  I cut it out, as well as other images from Basic Gray, Smoky Slate, and Early Espresso cardstock using the Under the Sea Dies.

I then stamped the sentiment just below all the images in Early Espresso ink.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Tropical Chic Thank You Card

My kids this weekend decided to each come up with a set of colors for me to use in a card.
Ironically enough, they each picked colors that I wouldn’t normally put together, so it really was a challenge.

My (almost) 13-year-old daughter picked Grapefruit Grove and Coastal Cabana.

Just a reminder also that I have FREE SHIPPING going on right now when you order through my store!!! (more details at the end of the post)

As much as I love Coastal Cabana, I rarely use Grapefruit Grove, but I thought they looked really tropical together, so I used the Tropical Chic Stamp.

I started off with Thick Whisper White cardstock which I cut at 4″ x 8″ and scored at 4″.  I then took a panel of Coastal Cabana cardstock and embossed it using the Corrugated Embossing Folder.

Next I cut out a Grapefruit Grove stitched circle using the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I stamped the sentiment from the Tropical Chic Stamp Set in Versamark ink on it, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it.

I then stamped the leaf in Coastal Cabana ink and the flower in Grapefruit Grove ink and cut them out using the Tropical Dies.  I used the same dies to cut out two leaves from Coastal Cabana cardstock.

Under the flower I wound a piece of Grapefruit Grove ribbon and then added a few pearls around the circle.

Enjoy!


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

Stampin’ Up! Super Simple Free As A Bird Thank You

Everyone loves free shipping…
So I thought I’d kick off July with a free shipping offer.

For all the details (and a bunch of other specials going on now), check the bottom of this post.

Now on to today’s card…

For the month of June I did a challenge a day with my team.
Some days it was stamping-related, other days it was just something motivational or to get them thinking.

One of the challenges was to create a very simple card…
which can be tricky and challenging.

Here’s one of the cards I came up with…

My card starts off with Thick Whisper White cardstock.

I stamped the images from the Free As A Bird Stamp Set in Memento Black ink on the bottom of the page.  I used Daffodil Delight, Flirty Flamingo, Call Me Clover, and Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends Markers to color them in.

I then used Washi Tape to tape off an area around the stamped images.  Using Grid Paper for this makes it really easy to get a straight line.  I then used the Light Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Marker to color it in.

Lastly I stamped the sentiment in Call Me Clover ink and added a few pearls around the stamped images.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! 3D Floral Card Video Tutorial

It’s Wednesday!!!!

That means tonight I’ll be going live with my Facebook tutorial.

Today’s card was the one I made last week.  It was a lot of fun as I took a flat floral image and made it 3D.

The flower comes from the Floral Essence Stamp Set and the paper is the GORGEOUS Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper.  The sentiment comes from the Daisy Delight Stamp Set.

I’ll be back tonight at 7:30 pm EST with a card that was inspired by a walk in my neighborhood.  Catch it live on my Facebook page and leave a comment and I’ll draw a name for someone to receive tonight’s card.

Stampin’ Up! Tropical Chic Card

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

My card starts off with Thick Whisper White cardstock.  I then measured a top and bottom piece of Coastal Cabana cardstock which I embossed using the Corrugated Embossing Folder.

In the space I stamped the sentiment from the Tropical Chic Stamp Set in Coastal Cabana ink and added a few Granny Apple Green Enamel Dots.

I used the Tropical Chic Bundle to first cut out a Daffodil Delight leaf.  For another leaf I stamped the image in Versamark ink on Daffodil Delight cardstock, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it.  For the bigger leaf, I used the Stamparatus.  I first inked it up in Granny Apple Green ink and then dabbed the edges of it in Coastal Cabana ink.

I wound around some Silver Thread over the leaves.  I also folded over some Coastal Cabana/Granny Apple Green ribbon which I secured using Whisper White Baker’s Twine.  I added a Coastal Cabana enamel dot over the fold.

Enjoy!
