Thinking of you

Stampin’ Up! Season of Chic Bundle Thinking of You

Welcome to Tuesday! I’ve a fun card for you today that is pretty quick & easy – and we all like quick & easy, especially now. We had a Team Meeting Sunday afternoon and this card was demonstrated by Tara Carpenter. I’ve used different colors, but the idea is the same.

Stampin' Up! Season of Chic Thinking of You.1

I like that the colors are rather soft for the die cut. And I’m calling this particular die cut ‘mesh’ or ‘netting’, cuz that’s what I think of when I see it :O) – using the Chic Dies of course And I die cut it from Textured Chic 12 x 12 DSP. I set that aside and die cut a few of the outline flowers from the Chic Dies from 12 x 12 Foil Sheets – in Gold. Next I ran a 3 3/4 x 5 piece of Very Vanilla card stock through the Timeworn Type 3D embossing Folder and began assembling. Thick Very Vanilla for the tent card base, layer of Mango Melody card stock, then the embossed panel. Just a few dabs of liquid glue to hold the ‘mesh’ to the embossed panel. Stamp the sentiment from Season of Chic stamp set in Petal Pink ink and die cut with the smallest of the Deckled Rectangle Dies and adhere with dimensionals. I again used dabs of liquid glue to attach the two outline floral dies to the sentiment banner. For a final touch, three Brushed Metallic Adhesive-Backed dots in Rose Gold were added. And the card front was done!

Stampin'n Up! Season of Chic Thinking of you.inside

I kept the inside very simple – another of the floral outline die cuts from the Chic Dies was added to a panel of Very Vanilla card stock, and that was added to the inside of the card. Done. This card is going to a friend whose husband had a stroke recently, son lots of support needed for both of them!

Stampin' Up! Season of Chic Thinking of you.3

See the Textured Chic 12 x 12 DSP on the envelope flap? That is the very same DSP I used to die cut the ‘mesh’ on the card front! Remember, Season of Chic and Chic Dies – a great bundle!!!

Stampin’ Up! Painted Posies Embossing Folder

Good morning, good morning. Thinking of all those who have been or are in the path of Hurricane Ian. My heart goes out to you and praying for your safety. It’s so very scary.

Today is the day prior to WCMD – WORLD CARD MAKING DAY – and it’s going to be fun! We invite you to join us during our Inkin’ Krew Facebook Live events during the day for some fun card sharing demonstrations AND some give- aways as well. More info is below but you can find the page right here:  https://www.facebook.com/groups/inkinkrewworldcardmakingday2022 – click & ask to join 😁

Today’s card is another pretty simple but elegant card that could so easily have a different sentiment: birthday, anniversary… we could almost call this an ‘all occasion card’. :O)

Stampin' Up! Painted Posies EF & Framed Occasions.1

Gosh, the light isn’t so good on this… it’s difficult to see the embossing :O( This starts with a Thick Basic White A2 card base with the fold at the left. I then took a Basic White panel & ran it through the Painted Posies embossing folder and adhered it to a Basic Black piece. I wrapped this fun Black & White 1/4″ Gingham Ribbon around and tied a knot. The sentiment was stamped in Polished Pink ink and comes from Framed Occasions stamp set. I die cut with a banner die from Hydrangea Dies. I put dimensionals on it & added it right over the ribbon. Solid Faceted Gems seemed to be the perfect addition for the sentiment banner. I added black dimensionals to the back of these panels and attached it to the card base.

Stampin' Up! Painted Posies & Framed Occasions.2

For the inside… another Basic White panel and stamped it in Polished Pink using this fun flower stem from Framed Occasions stamp set. It seems so similar to the long flower stem in the embossed front – like a perfect match. This is adhered to a Basic Black and then added to the inside of the card – and done.

Stampin' Up! Pretty Posies EF and Framed Occasions.3

For the envelope, a bit of black & white from the Perfectly Penciled DSP. On the front I stamped the same flower from Framed Occasions twice, re-inking in between, then stamped final time without re-inking. It creates some depth and makes it appear as though in the background. And yes, this was Polished Pink ink.

This Painted Posies embossing folder is in the Annual 2022-2023 Catalog – as are the Hydrangea Dies AND the Framed Occasions stamp set & Gingham Ribbon. The entire list of supplies is below. When ordering, please also use my current host code: KJ3MEDQ9 and remember I offer Star-Studded Rewards.

Stampin' Up! Daisy Garden Thinking of You.1

You can clearly see the challenge & my creation right next to each other. That works, right? This card is already designated for a friend of mine who underwent surgery today. It begins with a Daffodil Delight A2 card base with the fold at top. The next layer is Basic White just a smidge smaller, run through the Stitched Greenery Die. LOVE this die & I use it lots… The next step was to use the Daisy Garden stamp in my Stamparatus. This allows me to re-ink as needed with the stamp stamping in the same place :O) After stamping, I used the Daffodil Delight Blends to color the flowers: dark near the center of the flower and the light blend for the rest of the flower. I wanted the focus to be only on these and I think that worked well. I adhered this to a Basic Black panel, put dimensionals on the back (and yes, I used the Black Dimensionals 😁) and added it to the card front. The sentiment comes from Framed Occasions stamp set stamped with Memento ink on a Basic White scrap. I die cut it with a banner die from Harvest Dies. I wanted a bit of background for the sentiment so used the same banner die from Harvest Dies to create a Basic Black piece. These were adhered together and added to the card front with more dimensionals. Finally, the Brushed Brass Butterflies were a perfect addition to the card.

For the inside… I used Stepping Stones stamp set and Memento Ink to stamp the sentiment. This is a great set and has some wonderful quoted sentiments. And yes- stamped on a Basic White panel. At the bottom of this I stamped a bit more of the Daisy Garden stamp and colored it with Daffodil Delight Blends. I adhered this to a Basic Black piece, then into the Daffodil Delight card base. And the card was done.

Stampin’ Up! Perfectly Penciled for the Happy Inkin’ ay Blog Hop!

Welcome to our blog hop! Love these hops – so much creativity with a different theme for each week. You may have come from the talented Tara or simply jumped in. Enjoy either way 😀

Stampin' Up! Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop
Stampin' Up! Perfectly Penciled DSP.1

So you see the extra color, right? It’s the colored flowers in Cherry Cobbler Blends and the small Red Adhesive-Backed Pearls. I’ve used this layout before and really like it, but this is more modern than what I usually do. The DSP is Perfectly Penciled DSP which is all black & white papers. The background is a dry embossed Basic White panel using the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder and adhered to a slightly larger piece of Basic Black. That is attached to a Thick Basic White A2 card base.

Stampin' Up! Perfectly Penciled DSP.2

The inside is super simple but I love the flair of this font. It comes from the Go To Greetings stamp set, stamped in Memento Black ink on a Basic White panel. I adhered this directly to the inside of the card.

Stampin' Up! Perfectly Penciled DSP.3

For the envelope, more of the same Perfectly Penciled DSP adhered to the flap and no stamping on the front. Again, the card has a modern look to it – simplicity follows that. Now – follow the hop by clicking on the ‘next’ button or clicking on a name. Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy the hop!

Stampin’ UP! Seasons of Chic Leaves

Except for yesterdays Blog Hop in which I participated, I have focused on the Seasons of Chic Bundle for my cards this week. I am enamored with the versatility of this stamp set & dies. Today’s card is no exception. And I’ve certainly let you know how I gravitate toward monochromatic cards.

Seasons of Chic.1

The card base is thick Basic White. The next two layers are Shimmery White Paper. It’s a cross between Basic White and Very Vanilla, just not so creamy as the VV. Here’s what I did…

  • Die cut the front panel of Shimmery White card stock with Stitched Rectangles Dies. I used the smallest of the large set of dies.
  • Use Foam adhesive strips to line the rectangle and portions of the card to layer on another panel of Shimmery White card stock. SEE PHOTO.
Foam adhesive strips
  • Remove backing on strips and adhere to the slightly larger Shimmery White Paper.
  • Stamp the two-step leaf from Seasons of Chic stamp set in Petal Pink ink and Sahara Sand ink (both second generations), then die cut with the Chic Dies. It’s nearly impossible to see in this photo, but the vein stamp is in Sahara Sand ink, the other leaf stamp was stamped first in second generation Petal Pink ink.
  • Die cut two more leaves in Shimmery White.Layer the three leaves together adhering with liquid glue along the stems.
  • Tie a bow with strands of Linen Thread & Simply Elegant Trim in Gold, together and around the stems. Add a touch of liquid glue to the knot so it stays in place.
  • Put dimensionals on the stamped leaf and adhere to the die cut frame cutout.
  • Add three Iridescent Pearls Basic Jewels too the card.
  • Adhere the two Shimmery White Paper panels to the Thick Basic White card base.
Seasons of Chic. Leaves.1

For the inside… Stamp the sentiment in Sahara Sand ink from the Seasons of Chic stamp set. Add two more of the die cut leaves (these are smaller & different from those on front, but die cut from Shimmery White Paper) to the Basic White panel. Adhere panel to the inside of the card. DONE!

Seasons of Chic. Leaves. inside

For the envelope, I stamped this stunning leaf (w/ veins) to the front and on the flap ~ second generation Sahara Sand ink. Oh boy… I really, really like this card! What can I say… this Season of Chic Bundle is a MUST HAVE!

Seasons of Chic. Leaves. 4

Stampin’ Up! Painted Posies

Happy day after the 4th! I hope you had a fun day and stayed safe while doing it :O) My card today is a focus on the Painted Posies Embossing Folder. And trust me when I say – this embossing folder does all the work for you. It’s gorgeous! And silly me wasn’t going to get it. As I said, silly me. 🥴

Painted Posies EF.1

After embossing e Basic White panel with the Painted Posies embossing folder, I adhered it to an piece of Soft Succulent just slightly larger. I put dimensionals on the back and added it to the Evening Evergreen card base. I stamped the sentiment in Evening Evergreen ink on a Basic White strip – the sentiment comes from the Go To Greetings stamp set.I adhered this to a strip of Soft Succulent, put dimensionals on the back and added it to the card front. The last step was to add three Adhesive-Backed Seasonal Sequins in white – and the card front was done!

Painted Posies EF

I had trimmed the embossed front panel and saved the trimmed piece to add to the Basic White panel for the inside of the card. This was was adhered to Soft Succulent and then to the card inside. Again… done!

Painted Posies EF.3

For the envelope, I embossed a piece of Basic White and added it to the flap with liquid glue. And that was it. Quick. Easy. And gorgeous.

Stampin’ Up! Wonderful World Take 2

Happy 4th folks! Lots to be thankful for in this country of ours. Yes, there is room for improvement, but I’m proud of the freedoms we have and wish others could have more of it. Revel in our county’s glory, just be safe about it! OK?

Today’s card is another sharing of the Wonderful World Bundle – FREE during Sale-a-bration with a $100 purchase from any SU! catalog.

Wonderful World Take 2.1

The Rectangle Postage Stamp Punch is perfect for these images on the Wonderful World 12 x 12 DSP, so I did just that & punched out three floral images. I mounted them on Pear Pizzazz card stock to bring out that soft green on the stems & leaves. Next I pulled out some Garden Green card stock… notice how the stems & leaves have a darker edging? I added 3/4″ Frayed ribbon in white then the framed floral images on dimensionals. For the card base… Thick Basic White in a standard A2 size. I covered it with a Basic White panel run through the Stitched Greenery die. I love this die and use it fairly often for background texture. Before attaching the Garden Green panel, I stamped the sentiment from Soft Seedlings stamp set in Garden Green ink – love this font! The final touch for the card front was attaching the Adhesive-Backed Sequins & Gems in Fresh Freesia. They bring out the iris for me :O)

Wonderful World take 2, inside

On a Basic White panel, I stamped the iris in Rich Razzleberry ink – it follows the iris from the front of the card! This piece was adhered to a Pear Pizzazz base then to the inside of the card.

Wonderful World take 2.3

For the envelope, more iris from the Wonderful World stamp set in Rich Razzleberry – both on the front and the flap. The distinctive stamps in this set are really quite wonderful – love, love. And you can get this bundle (DSP + stamp set) when you purchase $100 of SU! product – you kn ow, from me :O) And… I’ve begun this rewards program and doubled the rewards through July 7th. So don’t wait, don’t hesitate – shop now :O)

Stampin’ Up! Wonderful World Sale-a-bration

Good Sunday morning! I have a quick & fun card for you this morning using a FREEBIE from the Sale-a-bration Catalog when placing an order of $100 before taxes & shipping. And remember I have this special of double rewards going on right now too :O) See below for more information about that.

Wonderful World.1

I’ve started with a standard card base of Starry Sky card stock and covered the front with one of the Wonderful World 12 x 12 DSP papers. I love this pattern! I then cut a 1″ strip of another pattern from the same DSP pack and added it with liquid glue. I then stamped this gorgeous distinctive flower from the Wonderful World stamp set in Starry Sky ink on a Basic White panel and die cut with one of the Deckled Rectangle Dies. I then took my Blending Brush and So Saffron ink and blended it on all the edges. It really makes the flower stand out and it also brings out the yellow from some of the other flowers. I mounted this in the center of the card with dimensionals. I tied a double bow with the 2022-2024 In Color Bakers Twine in Starry Sky and added it with a glue dot. The sentiment is from the Go To Greetings stamp set and added with liquid glue and a single dimensional on the right end. Two Opal Rounds were added for sparkle.

Wonderful World, inside

For the inside I cut another Basic White panel with the largest of the Deckled Rectangles Dies and added just a smidge of color (So Saffron) with my Blending Brush. I stamped another flower from this Wonderful World stamp set, a delicate iris, in Starry Sky ink full strength. This piece was added to the inside of the card and finis!

I stamped the same distinctive iris from the Wonderful World stamp set in Starry Sky ink on the envelope front – stamped off once. The flap got more of the Wonderful World 12 x 12 DSP.

Want to know how to get this bundle? And it’s a different kind of bundle… it’s stamp set & DSP! It’s one of the Sale-a-bration FREEBIES offered with a $100 order from any catalog – the 2022 Annual Catalog OR the Jul-Dec 2022 Mini Catalog.

Stampin’ Up! Season of Chic for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

It’s time… for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. You may have come from the fun & creative Tara or just dropping in. Whatever the case ~ here’s the sketch challenge.

And, drum role… here’s my card!

Season Of Chic. Happy Inkin’ Th. Blog hop.1

The focus is Texture Chic Specialty DSP (special as it has gold in the various papers – and BTW, it’s g-o-r-g-e-o-u-s. Some things I don’t like about this card 😩… I should have cut the DSP panels smaller, should also have put vellum (or something) behind the leaves so they stood out more. This was my first play with the Chic Dies – and they are so fab!!! Love, love. Just yesterday I learned that a friend’s step daughter lost her hubby, so this is going to my friend.

The ‘how to’…

  • Card stock base is Soft Succulent
  • next layer is Evening Evergreen adhered on a slant directly to the card base.(see the challenge :O)
  • Adhere two layers together of the Texture Chic Specialty DSP (HINT: I die cut several dies from the bottom DSP and since it doesn’t show, no one knows :O)
  • Die cut from Brushed Metallic Gold the ‘netting’ type die & adhere with liquid glue to the DSP
  • Adhere the two leaf die cuts from the Chic Dies & Texture Chic Sp. DSP, again with dabs of liquid glue
  • Tie a bow with the Simply Elegant Trim in Gold and adhere with a glue dot
  • Stamp the sentiment from Season of Chic Stamp set in Evening Evergreen ink on a Soft Succulent scrap and fussy cut. Adhere with Mini Dimensionals to the DSP panels
  • Put dimensionals on the completed DSP panels and adhere to the card.
Season of Chic. Happy Inkin’ Th. Blog Hop.inside

For the inside…

Use one of the die cuts from the Texture Chic Specialty DSP to the Basic White panel with dabs of liquid glue, then add to the inside of the card. No sentiment was added for flexibility of use, but since learning of a need for a sympathy card, I will have lots of room for comments, notes, something inspirational & hopefully comforting.

L-O-V-E this DSP… love the Season of Chic Bundle… can’t wait to play more. 😁

Season of Chic. Happy Inkin’ Th. Blog Hop.3

For the envelope… more Texture Chic Sp DSP for the flap, cut to fit. For the front, I used one of the leaf stamps, inked with Pool Party ink, then using a dauber added Evening Evergreen in various places. Perfect!

Now… on with the hop… Use the ‘next’ or ‘previous’ button to take you to whomever you wish to visit, OR, click on a name to visit their blog. Next is Amy Koenders who always has something great to share.
