Stampin’ Up! Dainty Delight with Dainty Flowers for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Today is Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop and the theme is LOVE. I’ve chosen to pair Dainty Delight stamp set and the Dainty Flowers DSP to make a slimline card.

And here’s my fun card…

Stampin' Up! Dainty Delight w/ Dainty Flowers DSP Slimline.hop

As I mentioned earlier, this is a slimline card… 7 x 8 1/2, scored at 3 1/2. It’s tall and long 😀I’ve used Dainty Flowers DSP as the focus and the scallop is from Scalloped Contour Dies with Basic White. I used the backside of one of the DSP pieces for the sentiments, stamped with Dainty Delight stamp set and Starry Sky ink. I wrapped a length of Metallic Woven Ribbon in Starry Sky around one end of the sentiments.And remember, products to make this card are from the Jan- Apr 2023 Mini Catalog & the Jan-Feb Sale-a-bration Catalog. The DSP is FREE with an order of $50 – and the papers are wonderful! Love, love, love. The card base is Basic White and the background papers on the sentiments are Starry Sky – as is the ink for stamping the sentiment.

For the inside, a panel of Dainty Flowers DSP stamped in Starry Sky ink using the Dainty Delight stamp set, then adhered in place on the inside of the card.

The envelope is from the Envelopes Slimline, stamped in Memento ink using the Dainty Flowers stamp set. I colored the stamped bouquet with Daffodil Delight for the flowers and Old Olive for the leaves. And that was it… super simple, super easy and super fun ~ and perfectly wonderful.

Stampin’ Up! Favored Flowers and Something Fancy Bundle

Good Wednesday morning! Thank you to those who placed orders for the Paper Share! There are some beautiful ones AGAIN! And I’m showcasing a FREEBIE with a $50 order during Sale-a-bration which begins…n TOMORROW, wheee. I happen to have a thing about notebooks. I like to carry one in my purse to make notes about, well, anything 😀 And I like to have them available to give away. So today I’m featuring these beauties.

Stampin' Up! Favored Flowers DSP.1

Aren’t these stunning papers? The colors here are Calypso Coral, Basic Black and Evening Evergreen & Petal Pink. I used various ribbons to use as a page marker: Open Weave Ribbon in Evening Evergreen, White Glittered Organdy, &White 3/4″ Frayed Ribbon. I’ve also used Something Fancy stamp set for the sentiments stamped in Evening Evergreen on a Basic White scrap and die cut with the coordinating Something Fancy Dies. I really like how these dies have a ‘nesting’ capability – meaning same shape but slightly larger. To create the background for the sentiment I used the larger die and cut from the same paper, just the reverse side. On the far right notebook, that background was die cut from Calypso Coral. Embellishments used on the sentiments were Gold Adhesive-Backed Swirls (soon to retire – like end of day TODAY – and the Iridescent Pastel Gems from the new Jan-Apr 2023 Mini Catalog.

And here’s one more, this time in Blackberry Bliss. The ribbon here is Evening Evergreen Windowpane.

I love that we can mixc products from the various catalogs… and I really like the elegance of these notebooks. Remember a couple of things today: LAST CHANCE PRODUCTS sale ends at end of day today AND the new January-April 2023 Mini Catalog goes live to customers tomorrow. Also tomorrow begins a new joining the Stampin’ Up! community special.

Stampin’ Up! Decorated with Happiness for the Happy inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hello and happy Thursday! It’s another Happy Inkin’ Blog Hop and we have a color challenge. And… I have a confession to make.. I made this card two weeks ago but when I went to post I realized it was wrong for that weeks challenge! Ha… I thought that was funny… and I saved the card to post for today’s challenge. Win, win 😀

Stampin' Up! Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop
Stampin' Up! Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop Challenge
Stampin' Up! Decorated w/ Happiness.1

The colors I chose are Granny Apple Green, Mossy Meadow & Merry Merlot – not colors I would normally put together, but I really, really like it. And of course the background is Sahara Sand from Subtles 6×6 DSP – and that really softens everything. The real fun is the sparkle from the Gold Foil Sheets, the Simply Elegant Trim and the Brushed Metallic Adhesive Backed Dots. The Granny Apple Green pine boughs just jump out – from Decorated Pine Dies. Another fun element is the Stylish Shapes Dies circle. This may be one of my Christmas card favorites. :O)

How to do this card..

  • Die cut three pine boughs from Granny Apple Green card stock – Decorated Pine Dies.
  • Die cut three ornaments from Gold Foil Sheets – Decorated Pine Dies from the Decorated w/ Happiness bundle
  • Die cut two circles: one from Subtles, Neutrals 6×6 DSP & one from Thick Basic White – Stylish shapes Dies. Adhere the two together for stability
  • Cut two panels: one from Subtles 6×6 DSP in Sahara Sand and one from Thick Basic White, 4 x 5 1/4. Adhere these together for strength.
  • Card base is is Sahara Sand 4 1/4 x 11, scored at 5 1/2
  • Stamp sentiment using Sahara Sand and Merry Merlot Markers on Thick Basic White piece – Hope & Peace stamp set. Die cut with _____________________
  • Now put together:
    • The 4 x 5 1/4 panels are adhered to card base with dimensionals
    • Place two pine boughs as shown using liquid glue to adhere
    • Add top left ornament adhering with liquid adhesive
    • Add Stylish Shapes Circles with dimensionals – add last spray of pine boughs on this
    • Add the lower left ornament with liquid glue, slipping a portion under the circle
    • Add last ornament to circle
    • Add sentiment panel with more dimensionals
    • Add Brushed Metallic Adhesive Backed Dots as shown
    • Fray two ends of a length of Simply Elegant Trim – add with folded glue dots.
Stampin' Up! Decorated with Happiness, inside

For the inside I stamped the pine bough in Mossy Meadow ink on a Basic White piece 4 x 5 1/4. Then stamped the sentiment – both from Decorated with Happiness stamp set – in Merry Merlot ink. At the bottom I added a strip of the Subtles 6×6 DSP in Sahara Sand. This was adhered to the inside of the card – and done!

Stampin' Up! Decorated with Happiness. completed card/ envelope

The envelope got more of the Subtles 6×6 DSP in Sahara Sand for the flap – and a pine bough from Decorated with Happiness stamp set in Mossy Meadow ink. I love everything about this card – hope you do as well!

Stampin’ Up! Decorated with Happiness Bundle for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Welcome, welcome ~ to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday blog Hop! We have a color challenge today that’s really fun – see below – and some fabulous crafters. If you came from the talented Tara, so happy to have you stop by.

I have to share a funny… I created a card yesterday and took photos, the day continued. I started putting this hop stuff together and realized I had THE WRONG COLOR CHALLENGE! I was dumbfounded… yep – that card you will see in December :O) Today’s final card is made with the Decorated with Happiness stamp set & coordinating Decorated Pine Dies. I love the pine fronds AND the ornaments – so fun. I’ve used Red & White 6×6 Glimmer paper; 2022-2024 In Color 6×6 Glimmer Paper in Sweet Sorbet; Pool Party card stock to die cut the ornaments & hangers – all using the Decorated with Pine Dies. The card base is Sweet Sorbet and the white layer is White Glimmer Paper from the Red & White 6×6 Glimmer pack :O) The pine boughs are die cut with the with Garden Green card stock. To create the snow I used the Snowfall Accent Puff Paint & my Heat Tool.

Stampin' Up Decorated Pine Dies.Inkin' hop.11/17

The sentiment was stamped on a Basic White scrap with Sweet Sorbet ink using the Decorated with Happiness stamp set. I fussy cut it and attached it with dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Decorated with Happiness

For the inside of the card I stamped the sentiment on a Basic White panel in Sweet Sorbet ink using the Decorated with Happiness stamp set. I stamped the ornaments in Pool Party ink using the same stamp set. The panel was added to the inside of the Sweet Sorbet card base.

For the envelope I stamped the same ornament as used on the inside of the card from Decorated with Happiness stamp set in Pool Party ink, then added the pine fronds in Garden Green ink. The flap is covered in Sweetest Christmas 12 x 12 DSP. And the card et all was complete! YAY…

Stampin’ Up! Trimming the Tree for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hello again – blog hop time 😁 and we have a sketch challenge – Christmas! Woohoo! Who doesn’t love the shiny, glittery, bright colors of the holidays? (It’s all the advertising that drives me crazy!)

I’ve chosen to work with the Trimming the Tree bundle. I love what happens with the tree dies in this set of dies ~ it creates all the elements of the tree (branches?) After die cutting, they can be poked out (which I did!).

Stampin' Up! Trimming the Tree Thu hop 11/3.1

I began by die cutting the tree outline using the Tree Trimming Dies (the dies retired in September but you can use them if you have them) on the Regals 6×6 DSP in Shaded Spruce and set that aside. I die cut the detailed tree using the Tree Trimming Dies on a smaller panel of Basic White, then again in Shaded Spruce and layered them together with liquid glue then adhered that to a Basic White panel with liquid glue. I put dimensionals on the back of the Regals 6×6 DSP and adhered it over the detailed tree die cut. This allows the tree branches to stick up/ out to give the tree some depth ~ and I love this look!. I then used the Shimmery Crystal Effects to add to many of the branch tips. See photo below for a better ‘look see’. I die cut a star from the Tree Trimmings Dies using the Real Red & White Glimmer 6×6 paper. I put a mini dimensional on it and attached it to the tree top.

Stampin' Up! Trimming the Tree Thu hop 11/3.2

I stamped the sentiment from Trimming the Tree stamp set in Cherry Cobbler ink on a Basic White piece, then die cut that with the banner die in the Tree Trimmings Dies. I adhered this with dimensionals then added a couple of Iridescent Rhinestone Basic Jewels.

Stampin' Up! Trimming the Tree Thu hop 11/3.3

For the inside… I took the leftover die cut of the outline tree, turned it over to use the opposite side :O), adhered it to the inside Basic White panel. I stamped the sentiment from the Trimming the Tree stamp set in Shaded Spruce, added this panel to the inside of the card and… done!

Stampin' Up! Trimming the Tree Thu hop 11/3.4

I kept the envelope simple… added a strip of the Regals 6×6 DSP in Shaded Spruce to the flap, trimmed it to fit and called it completed. I like it and hope you do too :O) The DSP is 3 3/4 x 5; the larger Basic White panel is 4 x 5 1/4; the card base is 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 scored at 4 1/4.

Stampin’ Up! Sweet Candy Canes for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! We have a sketch challenge for you today that lends itself to a realm of ideas.

Stampin' Up! Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop
Stampin' Up! Hop sketch challenge

And here’s my card for this week. It uses the Sweet Candy Canes stamp set & Candy Canes Dies + Sweetest Christmas 12 x 12 DSP as primary elements for the card.

This card began with the wonderful diagonal die cut from Candy Canes Dies, die cut from Basic White. I love this die!!! I then die cut the candy canes from the Sweetest Christmas DSP; stamped the sentiment in Sweet Sorbet ink on a Basic White scrap & die cut it; stamped the leaf bunch several times in Garden Green ink on another Basic White scrap and die cut- all using the Sweet Candy Canes Bundle. I cut a length of the Real Red Ribbon from the Ribbon Combo Pack and slipped it through the sentiment banner, adhering on the back with glue dots. I adhered the diagonal die cut to a panel of Sweetest Christmas DSP with dabs of liquid glue around the edges. I added the candy canes with liquid glue just on the end where I would eventually place the sentiment banner & dimensionals (a couple of them under the ‘hook’ of each candy cane.) I wrapped the Baker’s Twine around three fingers, twisted it and added it to the back of the sentiment banner, adhering with Stampin’ Seal on the backside of the banner. The twine is from the 2022-2024 In Color Baker’s Twine Pack in Sweet Sorbert. The banner was adhered with several dimensionals to give it stability. A couple of the stamped leaf branches were added with liquid glue.

For the inside I adhered one of the die cut candy canes from Sweetest Christmas 12 x 12 DSP to the top of a Basic White panel, then stamped the sentiment from Sweet Candy Canes stamp set in Sweet Sorbet ink. The die cut candy cane used the Candy Canes Dies. I stamped the sentiment from Sweet Candy Canes stamp set in Sweet Sorbet ink near the candy cane. I adhered this Basic White panel to a piece of the Sweetest Christmas DSP – same as the card front – then into the Garden Green card base. I added two of the Sweet Sorbet Adhesive-Backed Seasonal Sequins to either side of the stamped sentiment.

For the envelope: more of the same Sweetest Christmas DSP on the flap and the sentiment on front is from Sweet Candy Canes stamp set stamped in Sweet Sorbet ink – going around the corner :O)

Stampin’ Up! Quatrefoil Tile Grateful

Hello Tuesday! We have another hop for you today… Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop Group. The theme is Giving Thanks with our own interpretation and you will see a wide variety of ideas from that.

Interesting… when I see this photo it looks as though the package is raised. It is NOT! It is the Quatrefoil Tile panel that is raised and the package is inset. How about that! There it is.. a conundrum of a photo… I;ll explain how I created this at least.

Stampin' Up! Quatrefoil Tile, Grateful.1

I took a Basic White panel and with the Stylish Shapes Die, cut the square. I then ran it through the Quatrefoil 3D Embossing Folder. To add color to the folder, I used the Balmy Blue ink pad and gently ‘pulled’ it over the embossed panel. It adds just a bit of color when done properly and I like the look! I die cut another square with the Stylish Shapes Dies from Subtles 6×6 DSP in Pool Party. Both the Basic White embossed panel and the Pool Party square were set aside. to stamp & die cut the bow. This uses the Country Wreaths Dies – but first a stamping of the ‘blotch’ in the Perched in a Tree stamp set with Pool Party ink on a Basic White scrap, then die cut the bow with the Country Wreaths Dies. I put dimesnionals on the upper portion of the bow & the bow center & adhered it to the Quatrefoil panel. I put lots of dimensionals on the back of the Quatrefoil panel and adhered it to a Pool Party card base. I added liquid glue to the Subtles square and slipped it in the opening. The sentiment was stamped in Balmy Blue ink on a Basic White strip using the Cottage Wreaths stamp set, then die cut with the appropriate banner in the Stylish Shapes dies. And the card front was done :O)

Stampin' Up! Quatrefoil Tile, Grateful.2

For the inside, I stamped the sentiment in Balmy Blue ink using the Country Wreaths stamp set, then used the ‘dot blotch’ and Balmy Blue ink to add the dots from Perched in a Tree stamp set. I did this just cuz. It seemed to need something and this is what I did. The Basic White panel was added to the inside of card base and voila – the card was done.

Stampin' Up! Quatrefoil Tile, Grateful.3

For the envelope, I cut a strip of Balmy Blue card stock and ran it through the Quatrefoil Tile embossing folder, then used the Balmy Blue ink pad to add more color: lightly sliding it over the embossed piece. I added this to the envelope flap and trimmed it to fit. With a bit of the same Balmy Blue embossed panel left, I cut it 1/2″ and added it to the bottom of the envelope. This could so easily be a baby card, a gift card, a birthday card – you name it. I’m using it to send a monetary gift to a favorite someone wanting to purchase a mandolin. Fun, huh?! I think they will love the card & the gift!

Next in line is the creative Jillian Good. I can’t wait to see what she & the others have done!! Click on the next or previous button or click on a name to continue the hop. Enjoy!!!
