Stampin’ Up! Stylish Sketches Part II

Yahoo – it’s Friday… What exactly does that mean for you? The weather here in NJ is supposed to be ‘nice’. I’m hoping that means in the 80’s not the 100’s :O) Stylish Sketches is such a wonderful stamp set – the images really do look like sketches, free lines to create the image. I really like it. And it stamps beautifully!

Stampin' Up! Stylish Sketches Part II

So, for this card I used a similar layout, added some color, and of course a different image from the stamp set. My color of choice for this was Calypso Coral. Yes, I did add color on the stamped image ( Shaded Spruce & Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends), but I kept it pretty simple, but with layers.

  • Card base is Thick Basic White, layered with Calypso Coral then a Timeworn Type 3D Basic White embossed panel each adhered with liquid glue.
  • The plaid panel is Calypso Coral, then a layer of Gingham Cottage plaid in Calypso Coral. These were adhered together and added to the card front with dimensionals.
  • The stamped layer:
    • Stamp the image from Stylish Sketches in Memento black ink. Color with Stampin’ Blends: Shaded Spruce and Pumpkin Pie, using both light & dark for both.
    • Stamp sentiment in Memento Black in using the True Beauty stamp set. I like the font!
    • Add two Classic Matte Dots in Black nest to sentiment
    • Adhere to a slightly larger piece of Calypso Coral and add to card front with dimensionals on the right and liquid glue on the left. Card front ~ done!
Stampin' Up! Stylish Sketches Part II, inside

For the inside…Stamp the same image from Stylish Sketches, just not the entire image, in Memento Black on a Basic White panel; adhere this to another piece of Calypso Coral just slightly larger, then to the inside of the card base.

Stampin' Up! Stylish Sketches Part II + envelope

For the envelope, more of the same Gingham Cottage plaid in Calypso Coral to the the flap and the same image stamped in Memento Black on the front – yep, Stylish Sketches stamp set.

Stampin’ Up! More Heart & Home Mem’ries & More

Hello Everyone! Things have been a bit on the rough side here at home: hubby has been in severe pain w/ back issues and finally had surgery a week ago today. Whew! He is in recovery mode and we are very hopeful!!! For those of you who knew what was going on, thank you for your prayers. We could feel the Power of God’s Presence and are so grateful. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Keeping cards still pretty simple, I’m again using the Heart & Home Mem’ries & More Card Pack + the coordinating Cards & Envelopes. This is one of the smaller notecards in the set ~ take a look-see.

More Heart & Home Mem’ries & More

The card base is the smaller notecard in the Cards & Envelopes, the woodgrain. The bumblebee portion is 1/2 a small card in the Card Pack, trimmed a bit. That card is adhered to Cinnamon Cider card stock cut 1/4″ larger and put on dimensionals, I added a length of the shimmer ribbon in Gray Granite for accent with Tear n’ Tape and attached to the notecard. I stamped the sentiment from Honeybee Home in Basic Gray ink on a scrap of Basic White and fussy cut it, put mini dimensionals on the back and added it. Three Metallic Pearls in Silver were the final touch. LOVE…

More Heart & Home Mem’ries & More

For the inside, another panel of Cinnamon Cider with Basic White card stock. A sticker was added to bring in the gray :O) Another easy card that can easily be birthday, sympathy or thank you. Versatility once more – YAY! And here’s the envelope with it.

Stampin’ Up! Heart & Home Part 2

Good morning! I’ve created another super easy card for you using the Heart & Home Memories & More Card Pack + Cards & Envelopes. I DID add some die cutting elements to the card using the Pierced Bloom Dies. Abstract Beauty 4 x 6 Specialty DSP is also a part of the mini card front. Let’s take a look…

Heart & Home Part 2.1

The large card base is from the Heart & Home Mem’ries & More Cards & Envelopes, as is the wood grain piece :O) – so this is two cards in one. And the lovely die cuts add a nice element of dimension and pull in the colors of the flowers in the Abstract Beauty SDSP. The flower & flower center were die cut from Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper that I had created earlier. You can see that post here. Below is the colored panel. The leaf die cut is from Just Jade card stock. The background panel for the SDSP is Crushed Curry.

Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper

The inside of the front card is two of the stickers from the Heart & Home Mem’ries & More Card Pack.

Heart & Home Part 2, front inside

And the inside of the card… another panel of the Heart & Home Mem’ries & More Card Pack trimmed down just a bit & adhered to a slightly larger panel of Crushed Curry, then attached to the card base.

Heart & Home Part 2, inside

The envelope got another couple of die cuts using the Pierced Bloom Dies plus one of the stickers from Heart & Home Mem’ries & More Card Pack.

Heart & Home Part 2

As yesterdays card (you can see that here), there is no sentiment added, making this super versatile: thank you, birthday, just a note, hello ~ you name it. I appreciate having versatility in a card and, this will be part of a gift set for someone special.

Products to make this card are listed below so feel free to order away :O) If you do not have a demonstrator and need an Annual Catalog please reach out to me – happy to send one to you. AND… I have the Jan-Jun 2022 Mini Catalog and can send that as well! When ordering, please also use current host code: Y4NW3AK.

Stampin’ Up! Daffodils for the Happy Inkin’ Blog Hop

Hello Friends… it’s happy Thursday.

Welcome to the Blog Hop! There will be some gorgeous creations on the hop today – enjoy – and be sure to go through everyone’s blog. I’m using one of the springy Designer Series Papers for my card today – Daffodil Afternoon 12×12 that is FREE during Sale-a-bration. This is only available through Feb 28, 2022 with any order of $50 – get yours before it ends! Here’s my card.

Daffodils for the Blog Hop 2/24.1

And here’s our sketch challenge.

This is a very feminine card – and I love the combination of Designer Papers. Daffodils are one of the first signs of Spring and this just feels so ‘right.’ Here are the details…

  • Cut card base 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, score at 4 1/4. This is Pear Pizzazz
  • Cut DSP 4 x 5 1/4 and adhere w/ liquid glue
  • Cut coordinating DSP 2 5/8 x 3 7/8. Adhere to card stock panel (Crushed Curry here) 2 3/4 x 4. Adhere these to a Very Vanilla panel 3 x 4 1/4. Add dimensionals to the back and center on card front.
  • Stamp sentiment in Mossy Meadow ink using the Art Gallery stamp set on a Very Vanilla scrap. Die cut with the Tailor Made Tag Dies.
  • Add ribbon to tag: Bumblebee Gingham ribbon, securing together with a glue dot
  • Put dimensionals on back of tag & attach to card front. Done!
Daffodils for Blog Hop 2/24.2 (inside)

For the inside…

  • Cut DSP 4 x 5 1/4 and adhere to the inside of the card.
  • Cut Very Vanilla panel 3 1/8 x 4 1/8.
  • Stamp with butterfly from the Daffodil Daydream stamp set in Memento ink and color with Daffodil Delight Blends & Black Blends.
  • Stamp the ‘pollen’ from the Daffodil Daydream stamp set in Crushed Curry ink ~ the butterfly is scattering pollen from his legs ass he flies from flower to flower. :O)
  • Add this panel to a piece of Crushed Curry 3 3/8 x 4 3/8, then to the inside of the card. Finis!

For the Very Vanilla envelope…

Daffodils for Blog Hop 2/24.3
  • More DSP added to the envelope flap
  • Stamp the daffodil from the Daffodil Daydream stamp set in Memento black ink.
  • Color leaves with both Old Olive Stampin’ Blends
  • Color the daffodil with both Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends

I love how ‘fresh’ this looks. It’s cheerful too. Hope you like it as well. Remember the Daffodil Afternoon DSP is only available to the end of Sale-a-bration, 28 Feb., with any $50 order. Dont’ wait, don’t hesitate ~ get it now :O)

Stampin’ Up! Daffodil Afternoon DSP B’day

Hello everyone! It’s c-o-l-d here on the Jersey coast – 9 degrees yesterday, 19 today (wow – a heat wave!). I have two cards for you today, both of which are birthday cards using Daffodil Afternoon DSP from Sale-a-bration. It’s a FREE DSP pack when ordering $50 or more.

Daffodil Afternoon DSP.card 1

Notice how on this card more of the daisies show their glory even though there are daffodils in the lower half. Begin by creating the card base: Flirty Flamingo and covering the front with a panel of Daffodil Afternoon DSP that would coordinate with the main front. Then cut a piece of the DSP, cut it in half lengthwise, then take the right piece and cut it in two pieces. You can vary the cuts to suit the design. Adhere this DSP to a panel of Flirty Flamingo, put dimensionals on the back and center it on the card front. For the sentiment panel, I stamped in Memento Black ink on Pale Papaya card stock using the brandy newy Waves of Inspiration stamp set ‘happy birthday’. It is a perfect size for this card. Then I die cut it with one of the Waves Dies and put dimensionals on the back. I slipped a length of the fun Glittered Organdy Ribbon behind the front panel and then through each side of the sentiment banner, securing the ribbon in place with a glue dot on each end. I added three Iridescent Rhinestone Basic Jewels… and the card front was complete.

Daffodil Afternoon DSP.card 2

Card 2 was begun the same as the first. The difference is the front panel was off-set to the top in lieu of center. Also – no ribbon. And the sentiment banner is stamped on Very Vanilla card stock and die cut with Tropical Layers Dies. I’ll be honest, I like the front panel better when it’s centered, but I thought this looks ok. I still included the Iridescent Rhinestone Basic Jewels and like the added sparkle.

The inside of the cards are the same: a stamp from the Daffodil Daydream stamp set was stamped in Pale Papaya ink on the Very Vanilla panel and adhered to the inside of the card. For the envelope, I used the same stamp & ink for the front and more of the Daffodil Afternoon DSP for the flap.

And there you have it… two cards, same DSP, very similar layout/ design. Card cuts will be listed at the end of this post. I hope you like… these cards are definitely a breath of spring – which is right around the corner!

Sale-a-bration is from 4 Jan to 28 Feb ~ that means placing orders during this time can earn you some FREE PRODUCTS. What are you waiting for??? Products are listed below so feel free to order away :O) If you do not have a demonstrator and need an Annual Catalog please reach out to me – happy to send one to you.

Stampin’ Up! Calming Camellia for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Welcome! It’s Thursday and that means we have a special blog hop… love these hops and all the creativity that is shared.

We have a sketch challenge which you will see below – fun sketch. I kept thinking of all kinds of ideas to do for this, but settled on a favorite new (to me)technique called ‘whitewash’ and I did it a bit differently than I shared the other day. You can see that post here.

May be an image of text that says 'Happy Inkin Thursday Blog Hop February 3-Sketch Challenge aasasss'

And here’s my card for this sketch, using the fabulous Calming Camillia stamp set. This set comes when you do a $300 order. That means as a host, you can take orders from others to get to this amount. It’s a win-win. And don’t forget, Sale-a-bration is on until Feb 28 and lots more freebies come during this time when you place an order of $50 or more. But… on with how to make this card. 🙂

Calming Camillia.1

Stamp the flower from Calming Camillia on a Night of Navy panel with Night of Navy ink. Color the flowers only using an empty but damp water painter brush and Whisper White ink. In other words, the brush itself was still wet but the holder just had drops of water in it. I used an acrylic block and placed it on the white ink pad. covering it with ink. I took my brush and used the block as my ink pad. With this technique the ink went on more easily – and I colored only the flowers. These I wanted to stand out. I used just the very tip of my brush to create some highlights along various edges. Once that was good and dry, I ruffed the edges with the side of my paper snips. I cut another panel of New Horizons 6×6 DSP and ruffed the edges of it as well. This gives it kind of a vintage look, don’t you think so? I adhered the two together with liquid glue, offsetting the DSP panel.

I took another piece of the Night of Navy card stock and ran it through the Hive 3D embossing folder, then ran it through again with the Timeworn 3D embossing folder, then roughed the edges of that panel too. I laid a length of Flowers For every Season Ribbon Combo pack on the card base then adhered the embossed panel to the Night of Navy card base. I tied a bow on the side, put dimensionals on my square pieces and adhered this over the ribbon. At this point I felt the card needed a little more color to it, so I die cut the fun curved panel from the Brilliant Rainbow Dies and a scrap of the New horizons 6×6 DSP, slipped it under the ribbon and adhered it with dabs of liquid glue. For a final touch I added three Polished Dots to the floral panel and the card front was done.

Calming Camillia.2

For the inside…

Calming Camillia, inside.3

I stamped the leaf image from Calming Camillia in Night of Navy ink on a Basic White panel, then added a couple of the flourishes from the stamp set, also stamping in Night of Navy ink. The sentiment also comes from Calming Camillia stamp set and was stamped in Night of Navy ink. I added this stamped panel to the inside of the card with liquid glue.

For the envelope…

Calming Camillia.4

More of the New Horizons 6×6 DSP was adhered to the envelope flap. For the front of the envelope a beautiful leaf from Calming Camillia was stamped in Night of Navy ink.

This is a wonderfully versatile card: it could be used for a birthday, sympathy or simply just a note to someone special. I love that it can be used for several different occasions.

Stampin’ Up! Z Fold Window Card

Hello Friday! It’s been a busy week here and what we’ve got today is a fun fold for Valentines. And these are for our grand kids :O) I think they are going to like them. I’ve used Sunshine & Rainbows 6×6 DSP (FREE during Sale-a-bration with a $50 order – just sayin’) and some of the new stamp bundles from the Jan-Jun 2022 Mini Catalog.

For the card on the & far left I’ve used the Brilliant Rainbows Dies to get the rainbow, die cut directly from the Sunshine & Rainbows 6×6 DSP! And I used the Cloud Punch to create the clouds, again, directly punching them from the Sunshine & Rainbows DSP. The little heart is from the Sweet Hearts Dies.

For the middles card I taken the heart from the Love & Happiness bundle – using the Bouquet of Love dies and the smaller heart. The sentiment panel is a die from that same set, while the sentiment is from Love & Happiness stamp set.

For the far right cards: heart, flowers and sentiment banner are all from the Bouquet of Love Dies. The DSP is another of the Rainbows & Sunshine 6×6 DSP.

OK, I got theses in reverse order! But you can still see they are all different while still being the same fold. And here’s the full view of the inside when it’s pulled fully open.

Z Fold Valentines

Sweet conversations stamp set for the hearts & both sentiments.

Sweet Conversations stamp set for the sentiments on the center; Happy & heartfelt for the sentiment on the flap; and the tiny hearts are from Rainbows of Happiness stamp set.

Z Fold Window card, inside

The sentiment & hearts are from Rainbows of Happiness stamp set.

Directions for creating this fun fold are super easy.

  • Card base is 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 scored at 4 1/4
  • Basic White panel is 8 x 5 1/4, scored at 4″ & 6″
  • The Designer Series Paper is 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 (front panel); 1 3/4 x 5 (inside panel) and 1/2 x 4, all from the same DSP piece, just turned over to use the opposite side
  • Adhere the DSP to the card front and cut the window with the Layering Circles Dies. I found it helpful to run it through twice for a sure cut.
  • Stamp the Basic White panel as desired, then adhere to the inside of the card as shown.
  • You may at this point chose to die cut additional circles, just be certain to use the same size as the circle cut from the card front – so it covers the entire window opening. Adhere all pieces together.
  • Close the card and adhere the circles making certain to put adhesive only on the side that attaches to the fold :O). It’s best to adhere when the card is closed, so the circle fits the window perfectly.
  • Now finish decorating the circle as desired, making certain nothing interferes with the closure. Finis!

Stampin’ Up! Flowering Fields DSP Just a Note

Happy Monday! It’s bright & sunshiny here today, but brrrr cold. I hope you had a cozy weekend, a time to relax and a time to play with maybe just a little bit of work mixed in – balance. It’s all about balance, isn’t it?

Today’s card is another using this fabulous tulip pattern from the Flowering Fields 12 x 12 DSP pack. I really like this pattern and well, I just needed to create with it again. :O) This is such a fun layout and a post by Amy Koenders way back in November inspired me. Yesterday I posted a card made with this same pattern of DSP but bordered with Poppy Parade. Today I’ve used Pear Pizzazz and it gives the DSP a different look. The background paper is from this same pack, just not the flowery side 🙂 Here are the details…

Flowering Fields Just a note.1`
  • Prepare a card base (Pear Pizzazz) 4 1/4 x 11, scored at 5 1/2
  • Cut a panel of Flowering Fields DSP 3 1/2 x 4 3/4; cut in half lengthwise; cut right half 1 3/4 x 1 3/4, then 1 3/4 x 2 3/4
  • Adhere pieces to Pear Pizzazz: 1 7/8 x 4 7/8; 1 7/8 x 1 7/8; 1 7/8 x 2 7/8. Put dimensionals on back and adhere, large left panel first, the the right pieces.
  • Slip a length of Crinkled Seam Binding in White behind the lower panels and tie a bow, securing at the knot with a glue dot.
  • Stamp the sentiment from Flowing Flowers stamp set in Evening Evergreen ink on a Basic White strip; trim right end at an angle; put dimensionals on back and add over the ribbon.
  • For a final bit of bling, add three Opal Rounds ~ and the card front is done!
Flowering Fields w/ Flowering Rain Boots, inside

For the inside…

  • Stamp the leaves from Flowering Rain Boots in Pear Pizzazz ink on a post it note & fussy cut to create a mask – set aside
  • Stamp the leaves from Flowering Rain boots in Pear Pizzazz in on a Basic White panel 4 x 5 1/4
  • Lay the mask on top of the leaves and stamp the flower pot in Calypso Coral ink, again using the Flowering Rain Boots stamp set
  • Stamp the flower tops in Poppy Parade ink, making sure to only stamp the needed flower heads. And yes, these are from Flowering Rain Boots stamp set.
  • Using a Stamparatus for proper alignment, stamp the sentiment from Flowing Flowers stamp set in Evening Evergreen ink.
  • Add panel to the inside of the card with liquid glue.

For the envelope….

Flowering Fields Just a Note.3

All I did to the envelope is simply add the same Flowering Fields 12 x 12 DSP that I used for the background on the front of the card, to the envelope flap ~ and it’s ready for mailing! If the mailman hasn’t arrived yet, this will go to a friend who just had a knee replacement. She loves a handmade card!

So, what do you think? Like this card? Or do you prefer yesterday’s card? Here it is for a comparison.

Flowering Fields B’day

Interesting how similar and yet different these two cards are, just by using different coordinating card stock and some trimming. Would love to know if you have a preference between the two.
