Stampin’ Up! Snowman for the Happy Inkin ‘ Thursday Blog Hop

Welcome to the Thursday Happy Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop! The theme challenge is snow/ winter, as you see below and here’s what I created using the Snowman Season stamp set.

Snowman Season stamp set. 1

This fun little snowman just puts a smile on my faced every time… how about you? He looks as though a dance is in the making :O).

To make this card I’ve used some scraps from the Painted Christmas 12 x 12 DSP, adhered them to a Basic White panel, then stamped the snowman on the lightest color panel with Memento ink. I colored the scarf with Real Red marker for the hat & scarf, Pumpkin Pie marker for the nose. I wrapped a length of double-stitched Real Red ribbon to the Basic White panel. I stamped the sentiment in Memento ink on a Basic White strip, fussy cut it and attached it over the ribbon with dimensionals. I took another length to create a 1/2 knotn after looping it under the existing ribbon. This was adhered to an Evening Evergreen panel then added to the Mint Macaron card base and the card front was done.

For the inside, I stamped the sentiment from Snowman Season stamp set in Real Red ink on the Basic White panel. I then took the snowman hat from the same stamp set and stamped it in Memento ink, then colored it with Garden Green marker for the holly and Real Red marker for the berries. I adhered this to an Evening Evergreen piece, then attached it to the inside of the card. DONE!

For the envelope, more of the Painted Christmas 12 x 12 DSP with a narrow strip of Evening Evergreen card stock for contrast was added to the flap. And another of the snowmen from the Snowman Season stamp set went on the front of the envelope.

Fun, light card with ‘snow in the air.’

Stampin’ Up! Anniversary with Beauty of the Earth

Hi Folks! Happy POST Thanksgiving… We are still celebrating in our home – family arrived yesterday and we had our feast today. Needless to say, I have been preoccupied with our being able to be together, and cooking. :O) I enjoy cooking, but mostly I appreciate that we can be together. There’s nothing better!

Here’s a card for you that was super fun to do. A friend of mine wanted a card in blues for an anniversary and I came up with this.

Anniversary with Beauty of the Earth

This card also had a belly band and for some reason a missed taking a picture of it. 😦 And you can see I used the Eden Dies for special trim on the edges. This IS a fun fold and opens like this…

Anniversary with Beauty of the Earth, inside

You can see I also used the Heart Punch Pack (Night of Navy & Basic White) over the Gold Fine Art Ribbon & Beauty of the Earth DSP. Gilded Gems were added to the heart to bring it all together. On the large Basic White panel I stamped leaves in second generation Misty Moonlight ink. The sentiment on this panel & the heart come from an ALL NEW stamp set that will be in the Jan-Jun 2022 Mini Catalog called Love and Happiness. I love the sentiments AND the fonts! This stamp set will be available Jan 3 for customers. Of course… if you JOIN MY TEAM NOW you can order this set right away :O) How’s THAT for incentive? AND… joining as a demonstrator through the end of November is just $75 and the bonus is $125 worth of product. It just doesn’t get any better than that.

Stampin’ Up! Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Happy, happy, happy Thanksgiving! We have so MUCH for which to be thankful 🙏. Whatever you are doing or going, may you be safe and may you enjoy ❤️. Wishing you many blessings…

Today’s card is a sneak peek of one of the Designer Series Papers in the Jan-Jun 2022 Mini Catalog. 😁 And it’s called Daffodil Afternoon 12 x 12 DSP. And yes, full of daffodils. I chose, however, to showcase this… It will be available to order Jan 3, 2022…. unless of course you JOIN with me as a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator. If you did that, you could order it right away ☺️. More info on joining later in this post.

Daffodil Afternoon 12 x 12 DSP

The adorable butterfly is from the coordinating Daffodil Daydream stamp set and the daisy is stamped using the Daisy Lane stamp set and Medium Daisy Punch. Back to this DSP… isn’t that stripe wonderful? It’s Pale Papaya and Flirty Flamingo… and the black with daisies, is from this same Daffodil Afternoon 12 x 12 DSP pack. These are two of my favorites in this particular pack of papers. The daisy & butterfly are on a Label Me Fancy punched paper. I colored the center of the daisy with Flirty Flamingo Blends, then the butterfly in Pale Papaya & Flirty Flamingo Blends. Both were stamped with Memento ink.

And here’s the inside of the card.

Daffodil Daydreams stamp set, inside

This little butterfly has been picking up pollen from all the flowers and is losing some of it as it flies around :O). The butterfly was stamped in Memento ink and not colored at all. The ‘pollen’ is stamped in Pale Papaya ink ~ both of these are from the Daffodil Daydream stamp set. And I used more of this same stripy Daffodil Afternoon 12 x 12 DSP on the envelope flap.

Daffodil Afternoon 12 x 12 DSP

Stampin’n Up! November ’21 Paper Pumpkin

OK… I wrote this early Sunday morning, then things got a bit crazy and I didn’t finish it… :

Good mornin’! It’s Sunday… and I’m headed to a crafty fair today, my first time participating. It doesn’t feel like I made enough, but I’ll be there none the less. Excited & nervous at the same time… My November Paper Pumpkin arrived and I quickly made these fun treat holders. I added some retired and current Stampin’ Up! embellishments, some Hersey Kisses in the gift bags and voila – fun item to give kids at Christmas.

It’s clear here I added the Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the front of the tree and decided I didn’t want the tag covering those sparkles, so I added it to the back side with dimensionals. Pretty durn cute.

Fun snowman or woman :O) Here I added some retired SU! products: Black faceted gems and the tiny balls for the ear muffs. Since I ran out of the red, for the next snow person I added what looks like Flirty Flamingo tiny puffs. OOPS! I didn’t take a photo off that one! Grrr. Next is the stack of packages.

I tied a triple bow with the twine included in the kit and adhered it with liquid glue. To make sure it was very secure, I placed an acrylic block on it while I added the Rhinestones to the centers of the other bows. And – yes, I did all the embellishing before attaching the treat boxes!

Here are a couple of side views. so you can see the cute tags included in the kit and the treat bags too!

Aren’t these cute? Here I am on Monday evening finishing this post – aaargh… So let me say – these all sold ~ YAY! I was so pleased ‘cuz they are cute – at least to me.

Staqmpin’ Up! Birthday w/ Christmas Cheer

Hello to Saturday! It’s the weekend and I hope you have some fun plans included in your day. Hubby & I got our Moderna booster yesterday and so far, no side effects. A bit of a sore arm, but that’s common with just about any injection. My card for today is for a friend of ours turning 90! He still drives to work. Yes, I did say work. He thrives on people and has a very sharp mind.

Isn’t this fun? I love the colors :O) And since he’s very Irish, the green is perfect. This is also a bit of a fun fold, ‘cuz of the way the top folds in to rest on the sentiment (which is raised on dimensionals). The DSP is Expressions in Ink SDSP (it has gold!)

Supplies:

  • Christmas Cheer Dies (to die cut the word ‘happy’)
  • Biggest Wish stamp set (BIRTHDAY, friend,& happy on inside)
  • Playful Alphabet Dies (# & 90)
  • Artistically Inked stamp set
  • Gilded Gems
  • Foam Adhesive Sheets (adhered to panel of DSP then die cut)
  • Evening Evergreen card stock 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 scored on the long side @ 2 1/8 & 4 1/4. Burnish both inward.
  • Mint Macaron card stock 1 7/8 x 5 3/8; 4 1/8 x 5 3/8

  • Gold Foil Sheets (die cuts for # & 90)
  • Evening Evergreen ink (BIRTHDAY)
  • Mint Macaron ink (background for sentiments)
  • Just Jade ink (inside happy)

Directions:

  • Adhere Adhesive Backed Sheets to Expressions in Ink SDSP
  • With the Christmas Cheer Die, die cut the word ‘happy’. HINT… runt the die through once, turn it over and die cut again. This makes certain the die goes through the layers cleanly.
  • With the Stitched Rectangle Dies, die cut the rectangle in Basic White.
  • Remove the backing on the sentiment ‘happy’ and adhere to the stitched rectangle.
  • Adhere the two front panels of Expressions in Ink SDSP to the card base.

For the inside…

  • Adhere the smaller Mint Macaron panel & the similar size Basic White panels together. Attach these to the inside of the card – top
  • Adhere the largest Mint Macaron panel to the lower portion of the inside of the card.
  • With the Basic White inside panel, stamp the ‘splotch’ with Mint Macaron ink using the Artistically Inked stamp set.

  • Adhere three Gilded Gems and the inside is complete!

For the envelope…

And here’s my note card…

Blessings of Home Note Card

I’ve used the beautiful Heart & Home 12 x 12 DSP (new in the J-J 2022 Mini Catalog). I also used the sentiment for the outside and inside from the Blessings of Home stamp set that coordinates with the DSP – yep, from the J-J 2022 Mini catalog. I also used Garden Gems for a bit of bling. Dimensions may be found at the end of this post.

Directions:

  • Cut floral Heart & Home 12 x 12 DSP 2 3/4 x 4 1/4 and adhere to Garden Green card stock 2 7/8 x 4 3/8
  • Adhere 1″ Pale Papaya strip
  • Cut another strip of the Heart & Home 12 x 12 DSP 1 x 4 3/4 and adhere to note card as shown
  • Adhere larger panel as shown.
  • Stamp the sentiment from Blessings of Home stamp set in Garden Green ink on a Basic White piece and die cut with the Encircled in Beauty Dies. Adhere with dimensionals.

Stampin’ Up! Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

May be an image of cosmetics and text that says 'Happy Inkin Thursday Blog Hop november 18 Color Challenge Pick At Least 3 Early Espresso Cinnamon Cider OldOlive RealRed Basic White'

And my card for today is a slimline card and sort of a fun fold. I was inspired by team mate Jaimie B. I loved the fold, it was a win-win kind of card that could be used for MANY occasions. For today’s challenge, I used it as a fall “appreciate you” kind of card. At the end of this post, because I really like the fold & the slim line, I will share three more that I created. As I mentioned already, this card can be used for just about anything ~ up & down or sideways. Here’s the card for the hop. And… I’m entering this card in the Just Us Girls challenge.

Slimline Gorgeous Leaves + Love of Leaves ~ Fun Fold

What do you think? Like? I LOVE it! I like the fold, I like the leaves, I like the DSP on this card. And the layers are fun, simple and yet, they add a really nice element to the card.

Basic elements of this card:

  • Early Espresso card stock, cut 7 1’2 x 8 1’2, scored on the short side at 1 3/4 & 5 1/4
  • Create layers:
    • Basic White or layer 1: 1 5/8 x 8 3/8; 2 x 8 3/8; overlay ~ 3 1/4 x 5 3/8
    • DSP – here I used Bloom Where You’re Planted 12 x 12 DSP: 1 1/2 x 8 1/4; 2 x 8 1/4
    • Adhere these together & attach to appropriate panel of card base.
  • Overlay: Real Red card stock 2 1/4 x 5 1/2 + Basic White 2 1/8 x 5 3/8 (emboss the Basic White piece – for this card I used Bark 3D Embossing Folder.
    • Adhere embossed Basic White panel to the Real Red piece then decorate

To decorate the Overlay:

  • On a Basic White piece, with Blending Brushes & Real Red ink, Old Olive ink and Early Espresso ink, color a Basic White piece.
  • Die cut this colored panel with the Intricate Leaves Dies., then color again using the same color inks and the Blending Brushes. It might be necessary to add Early Espresso ink at the edges ~ I did. Die cut with the Intricate Leaves Dies.
  • Stamp the smaller Maple leaf in Old Olive ink, second generation. With a blend Brush, add Real Red ink. Die cut with the Intricate Leaves dies.
  • Die cut the longer leaf from Brushed metallic card stock.
  • Run the Basic White panel for the Overlay through the Bark 3D Embossing Folder. Adhere to the Real Red panel.
  • Add leaves to this panel with liquid glue and the middle leaf on dimensionals.
  • Add the Overlay to the narrow panel of the card with Stampin’ Seal on only the left side of the overlay. Center on panel
Slimline Fun Fold

For the inside…Stamp the sentiment in Real Red ink using the Pretty Pumpkins stamp set on the Basic White panel (3 1/8 x 8 1/4). Stamp the fun decoration at the bottom in Old Olive ink and color with Old Olive and Cinnamon Cider Stampin’ Blends. Run panel through the cut & emboss machine with the Stitched Leaves Dies (coordinates with Love of Leaves stamp set). Adhere to a Real Red panel 3 1/4 x 8 3/8. Adhere to the center inside panel & voila!

Slimline Fun Fold, inside

Love, love, love. Hope you do as well :O) Here are three additional cards that I created using this same layout. I used one as a sideways card, yes, intentionally! Take a peek.

Stampin’ Up! OnStage@Home Cards

Yesterday was the end of our virtual OnStage@Home event and we created three cards that I want to share with you today. It was a time of learning about new products and techniques and I’m sorry it’s over. All are made with the Blessings of Home suite of products that we were able to purchase as a bonus for attending convention. These products will be available to customers in the Jan-Jun 2022 Mini Catalog.

OnStage@Home Card 1

This is the first card we created and I love this paper. It was supposed to be a portrait style card and I had cut my paper in the landscape position – so there you have it… it still works. This is a beautiful stamp that shows all this detail and stamps so easily. It wass stamped in Garden Green ink on a basic white panel and colored with sponge daubers. Interesting way to color, right? Turn your sponge daub er kind of on it’s side, tap into the ink, scrub off just a bit, then color the leaves in Garden Green ink, sort of brushing the ink on the leaf. Then do the same with the flower in Misty Moonlight ink – changing sponge daubers of course. Then die cut the flower.

I chose to embellish the flower a bit and die cut some of the ‘sprays’ in the set in Vellum to adhere around the flower.

When adhering the large stamped image to the card, we added dimensionals to the top and the bottom and a strip of Stampin’ Seal across the middle. This allows for dimension in the flower yet also keeps the card from being too bulky – which I really like. I slipped in the vellum die cuts and adhered with dabs of liquid glue.

The banner was stamped in Garden Green ink on a Basic White strip, then adhered with liquid glue to the Denim Ribbon that is part of the suite. Add Stampin’ Seal to the back of the ribbon and attach in the middle part of the flower. Add Matte Dots that are also a part of the suite and the card front is done.

For the inside and the envelope, I stamped a partial flower of the smaller bouquet, both in Garden Green ink. Isn’t the image wonderful?

Card #2 is a notecard size using Cinnamon Cider card stock as the card base. A panel of the Heart & Home DSP was added, again with dimensionals at the top and bottom and a strip of Stampin’ Seal in the middle. We stamped the smaller floral bouquet in Cinnamon Cider ink on a panel of Shimmer Paper. (Love this paper and it’s available NOW in the 2021 Annual Catalog. Shimmer paper is good for watercoloring, using Stampin’ Blends and has as bit of shimmer to it – therefore the name :). We used a Water Painter to pull out some of the color on a couple of flowers. When doing this process, it’s important not to have squeezed too much water into the brush. Adhere this panel at an angle over the DSP.

OnStage@Home Card 2

We stamped the sentiment from the Blessings of Home stamp set in Misty Moonlight ink, to bring out the DSP in the background, also on Shimmer paper. We added dimensionals just to left side of the panel and adhered it to the card. We die cut several of the ‘sprays’ and adhered with liquid glue under the right side of the sentiment panel. We added the Cinnamon Cider flower tops with dabs of liquid glue.

For the inside of the card I stamped a partial image of the small floral bouquet in Cinnamon Cider ink.

OnStage@Home Card 3

This card is landscape intentionally but you can see clearly that I cut my paper in portrait – silly me. Yes, I WILL have to redo this card! The card base is Fresh Freesia with the added panel of Heart & Home DSP. And yes, to drive home the idea of not too much bulk, dimensionals were added to the far right and left sides of the DSP and a bit of Stampin’ Seal in the middle. Die pieces were cut in both Cinnamon Cider and Fresh Freesia, adding the longer sprays with liquid glue near the middle. The banner was stamped in Cinnamon Cider ink and this is a reverse side of this DSP – love it. The banner was added with dimensionals then the Fresh Freesia Flowers with dabs of liquid glue.

For the inside of the card I stamped the partial flower in Garden Green ink the colored it with Stampin’ Blends in Pale Papaya. And the envelope was stamped in Garden Green ink but not colored.

As you already know, the first & last cards must be re-done… so here’s a challenge for you… choose which of the cards you like the best and whichever card gets the most votes, will be sent to one of the responders. And yes, it will be going in the proper direction – promise.

Here are the items in this suite.
