Stampin’ Up! AMY’S INKIN’ KREW Blog Hop

The theme for this month’s Blog Hop is all about “For the boys/ men…” and we could interpret that any way we wanted. Hubby’s birthday is in June and he is a sailing man. The new blue in the 2020-2021 In Colors for Stampin’ Up! is titled Misty Midnight. I love that! And it’s perfect to work with for a man – my man. And the Sailing Home carrying over stamp set is a perfect match in many ways. I also used the NEW Tasteful Labels Dies (eek! – fun!) and the Many Mates stamp set (love this too!)

You may be joining me today from the talented Julie Johnston. Thanks for following the blog hop!

The card is a take-off of a Gate Fold card – modified version. I actually followed the really good directions of my upline Mary Deatherage, who created a card using this fun fold. It’s easy!

For the boys/ men #1
  • Cut your card base 4 1/4 x 11, score at 5 1/2. I used Whisper White
  • Cut another piece of card stock (I used Night of Navy 5 1/4 x 8, score at 2″ and 6″
  • Mark the center of each of the short panels( 2 5/8). Cut to the center of each short panel (or gates) creating a V – see photo… I apologize… should have taken a photo PRIOR to completing the card – grrr
For the boys/ men #2
  • Cut a piece of  In Good Taste DSP 1 7/8 x 5 (2 of these) Follow the same procedure for cutting.  Adhere DSP panels to the card front “gates” using liquid glue. (This DSP is available to customers June 3!)
  • Cut apiece of the 2020-2021 6 x 6 DSP  Misty Midnight 3 7/8 x 5 1/8 and adhere using liquid glue to the inside of the Night of Navy panel (This DSP is available to customers June 3!)
  • Using the Stitched so Sweetly Dies, cut a panel for the sentiment and the sailboat. The sentiment, sailboat and birds are from Sailing Home stamp set.  I used Night of Navy ink. Adhere to the inside front panel with liquid glue.
  • Adhere this modified gate-fold to your card base with liquid glue.
  • Cut a strip 1 x 10 for the belly band. I used the new 2020-2021 IN COLOR Bumblebee. Don’t you love that name? It is so descriptive.
  • Cut another panel using a smaller Stitched So Sweetly Dies and Bumblebee card stock. Adhere to the belly band with dimensionals.
  • * Using two of the Tasteful Labels Dies (available to customers June 3!), cut panels, one in Night of Navy and one in Whisper White. Adhere with liquid glue to the Bumblebee diecut.
  • Stamp your sentiment using the new Many Mates stamp set. I added three of the new 2020-2021 In Color Enamel Dots. They are so cute! (Both of these are also available to customers June 3)

The front of your card is complete! Yay! And it’s gorgeous already. 😏 Now for the inside…

For the boys/ men… #3
  • Cut a piece of Night of Navy 5 3/8 x 4 1/8. Adhere using liquid glue.
  • Cut a Whisper White 5 x 3 7/8. Stamp with your sentiment and the anchor from the Sailing Home stamp set and Night of Navy ink. Adhere using liquid glue. Done!

Remember your envelope…Cover the envelope flap with the new 2020-2021 6 x 6 In Color DSP, adhering with liquid glue. Trim. Done, done, done…

For the boys/ men #

Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Moments and Coordinating DSP

Double Z Fold with Peaceful Poppies DSP #1Hi Everyone! Yesterday was so delightful, I played in the yard ALL DAY. Today is a wonderful light rain to help with all the transplanting I did 🥵 It was hard work, but I enjoyed every moment of it. Speaking of moment… good segue into today’s card made with the Peaceful Moments  stamp set and the Coordinating Peaceful Poppies DSP. Here it is…

Double Z Fold with Peaceful Poppies DSP #1

And here’s how to create this fun double z-fold card…

  • Thick Whisper White 4 1/4 x 11, scored at 5 1/2 & 2 3/4
  • Old Olive 2 1/2 x 4 for the front panel
  • Blackberry Bliss 2 1/2 x 4, 4 x 5 1/4
  • Peaceful Poppies DSP 2 3/8 x 3 7/8 (cut 2) 3 7/8 x 5 1/8; for the panel…1 1/8 x 5 3/8, 1 1/8 x 2 1/8 (cut 2)
  • Whisper White 1 1/8 x 5 1/4, 1/2 x 2 5/81 1/8  x 2 5/8
Double Z Fold with Peaceful Poppies DSP
  • Adhere appropriate panels to your Thick Whisper White cs using liquid glue. Refer to the photo for guidance.
  • Adhere the DSP to the smaller z fold piece using liquid glue
  • Stamp your sentiments in Black Memento ink on the appropriate Whisper White strips
  • Adhere the longest Whisper White with sentiment with liquid glue to the longest z fold panel – add the Peaceful Poppies element with liquid glue
  • Color the Peaceful Poppies element with Light Blackberry Bliss Blends. Cover with the coordinating vellum, attaching jsut at the base with snail. Adhere to the middle panel with liquid glue. Adhere the narrow stamped piece over this with liquid glue.
  • For the last portion of the narrow z-fold panel, stamp your sentiment and adhere with liquid glue.
  • Tricky part… adhering the narrow z fold to the card… adhere the longest panel first, remembering to just adhere to the front left panel of the card. Close the card and adhere the far right panel. Using your grid paper to. line up this panel helps to keep it straight. Card is done!

For the envelope, simply adhere a 2 1/4 x 6 panel of coordinating DSP to the envelope flap; trim and your card is complete – YAY!

Stampin’ Up! Good Morning Magnolia

Today’s card uses the Stampin’ Up! Good Morning Magnolia stamp set, heat embossing and sponge daubers. I’ve created this as a birthday card, but it could so easily be sympathy, wedding, anniversary, or just a note. It is soft and it is feminine. Let’s look….

Good Morning Magnolia #1

Here are the details:

  • Thick Whisper White card stock 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″, another piece 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″ for the card front.
  • Rub the smaller cs with your embossing buddy, making certain to cover the entire area.
  • Using Versamark ink, stamp the Good Morning Magnolia stamp on the right hand corner, stamping as much of the magnolia as you desire. Ink a portion of the stamp again and stamp in the upper left corner.
  • Sprinkle with white embossing powder and heat emboss. Set aside to cool.
  • On a scrap, of vellum, rub with your embossing buddy and with Versamark ink stamp the flower bud. Sprinkle with white embossing powder then heat emboss until all the powder has melted. Set aside to cool. Once cool, use the Magnolia Memory Dies to cut out the flower bud.
  • On another scrap of vellum approximately 1/2″ x 3″, rub with the embossing buddy, ink your sentiment and stamp. Sprinkle with the white embossing powder and heat emboss until all powder has melted. Set aside to cool.
  • Using Blushing Bride and sponge daubers, lightly rub the color exactly where you want it. I made it darker in the center and lighter toward the outside. For the leaves, do exactly the same with Old Olive ink. Do the same on the vellum flower bud but color on the backside of the vellum.
  • Attach the flower bud with a mini dimensional at the base of the bud.
  • Attach the vellum sentiment in the same spot using a glue dot. I used a second glue dot, placing it just under the word happy, so it wouldn’t show through.
  • Now you are ready to adhere this directly to your card base, using liquid glue or snail.

For the inside… I’ve kept this very simple.

Timeless Tulips sentiment – inside
  • Choose your sentiment… this is from the Timeless Tulip stamp set (available during Sale-a-bration), and using Stazon Jet Black ink..

Thanks for stopping by today. 

May you have a beautiful day.

Stampin’ Ip! Ornate Garden Specialty DSP, Ornate Borders Dies

Todays Card is a fun use of the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Garden Specialty DSP and the Ornate Borders Dies. It’s a panel card, at least that’s what I’m calling it, meaning it doesn’t open 🙂 It simply has a panel that fits inside the folded DSP. Let’s take a look….

This Ornate Garden Specialty DSP is so sweet and I wanted to emphasize this particular pattern for as much of the card as possible. This is what I did…

  • Mint Macaron card base cut to 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″; also cut 3 1/2″ x 4 1/2″ for the inside panel
  • Ornate Garden SDSP cut to 4″ x 5 1/4″; another with same dimension but score this at 4″
  • Adhere the 4 “x 5 1/4” SDSP to the card base using liquid glue
  • Cut a panel 1/2″ x 4″ from Gold foil. Using a die from the Ornate Borders Dies, run it through your embossing/ diecut machine. Adhere this diecut to the fold-over piece of SDSP. Cut about a 20″ length of Mint Macaron 1/4″ ribbon, run over it with your snail adhesive and adhere evenly around the back and front, covering slightly where the Gold Foil diecut was attached.Tie a bow. TIP: use your grid paper to make certain the ribbon is attached evenly. 
  • Using tear ‘n tape, adhere to the sides and bottom of this panel and attach to the card base.
  • Cut three flowers from Gold Foil scrap using the Ornate Border Dies. Adhere Glitter Enamel Dots to the center of each flower. Put on dimensionals and attach accordingly.

Now for the inside…

  • Whisper White cut to 2 is 7/8″ x 4 1/4″. Stamp your sentiment (I used the Peaceful Moments stamp set) with Stazon Jet Black ink. I like how clear this ink stamps! I also added a sweet flower from the Special Someone stamp set. This was colored using Flirty Flamingo and Daffodil Delight markers. TIP: When using Stazon Jet Black ink, DO NOT USE BLENDS TO COLOR! It simply smears the ink instead of adding color.
  • Using the Ornate Borders Dies once more, cut the same border die from Blushing Bride cs (approx. 1/2″ x 4″). Adhere to the Whisper White panel using liquid glue.
  • Adhere this Whisper White panel to the 3 1/2″ x 4 1/2″ Mint Macaron piece. Cute, cute!

The envelope…

  • Cut a piece of matching SDSP from the Ornate Garden SDSP pack 2 1/4″ x 6″. Adhere with liquid glue and trim.
  • Stamp the adorable flower used on the card panel insert on the envelope front (I did it five times!) Color using Flirty Flamingo marker for the petals and Daffodil Delight marker for the flower center.

Isn’t this card sweet?!

Timeless Tulips

Hello! The birds are singing wildly this morning. Isn’t it amazing how bulbs popping out of the ground can get us all enthused? It happens to me for sure. So today’s card is a hint of Spring – Pool Party is the lead color with just a hint of Petal Pink and Soft Seafoam. Here it is…

  • Card base is 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″ – Pool Party
  • Layer 4″ x 4 1/4″ Pool Party dry embossed with the beautiful Parisian Flourish 3D embossing folder. Adhere with liquid glue directly to the card base
  • Layer #2: 3 1/4″ x 4 1/4″ Pool Party. Cut 3″ x 4″  Parisian Blossoms Specialty DSP and adhere with liquid glue to the smaller Pool Party. Put dimesnionals on the back and adhere to the card base by centering it on the card.
  • Layer #3: Using the Stitched So Sweetly dies and second from largest scalloped edge, cut a piece of Whisper White. Stamp the sentiment in Tuxedo Black Memento ink, the stamp the smaller tulip in Petal Pink, followed by the stem and leaves in Soft Seafoam.
  • Adhere pearls from Share What You Love OR color pearls using Stampin Blends markers.

Love the simplicity of this primarily monochromatic look. The sentiment chose lends itself to being used as a birthday, sympathy, congratulations or just a note card.

February Paper Pumpkin from SU!

Extra short post today but I wanted to share with you my current creations with the February PP kit. PP is such a treat to receive with all the embellishments, glue dots, dimensionals, card stock AND directions. I usually create one or two per directions that come with the kit, but not always. Here’s what I’ve done thinking “outside the box” …

Questions about PP? Please contact me for more details… now is a great time to invest in this monthly subscription. If you are interested in the March subscription you may order until Mar 10. One of the ideas SU! is using is coordinating the PP with current stamp sets. WOW, does this make it even more valuable for future use.

For now – ta ta. Enjoy your day… make it better by creating and sharing what you love to do!

Coordination Product Release

These items are so great to have to use with the coordinating stamp sets. Check them out!

Here’s a picture of a card we are making in my Mar 9 and 10 classes. It uses the Budding Blooms dies that coordinate with the Happy Birthday To You stamp set.These items are available now.

Bloom and Grow with coordinating Budding Blooms dies

Oh my goodness… I think I have shared with you how much I enjoy coloring. If not, well now you know 😏 The weather here was gray, overcast and rainy – a bit on the dreary side to say the least. Hubby was home and wanted a fire in the fireplace so I brought my crafty stuff to that cozy spot and had a “jolly good” time.

The night before I had taught a class and demonstrated coloring with blends. I had stamped and cut some extra pieces so I could demo a different color than what we were making in class. I only did one the night of the class and this set was calling me to do more. With this delightful, cozy setting of the fireplace ablaze, our Springer Spaniel lying close to the fire and my hubby reading, I couldn’t resist staying close by.

Here are the cards… card 1 is the one created in class. The others are what I completed yesterday afternoon. n

Blends used varied with each card… the first is Poppy Parade and coordinating blends with Petal Pink both light and dark blends for the back ground; and Call Me Clover light and dark for the leaves, Poppy Parade dark for the berries. The next card shows Granny Apple Green light & dark blends for the back ground, Petal Pink light & dark for the flowers, Mint Macaron light & dark blends for the leaves, and light Flirty Flamingo for the berries. The next card was kept very simple – no card stock background and I love it! Highland Heather light & dark blends for the flowers, Granny Apple Green light & dark blends for the leaves, dark Flirty Flamingo for the berries and Soft Seafoam light and dark blends for the back ground. Card four: light Poppy Parade + dark Petal Pink for the flowers, Granny Apple Green light & dark blends for the leaves, soft Seafoam light and dark blends for the background and oh yes, dark Poppy Parade for the berries. Last but not least: the yellow card is affixed to Daffodil Delight card stock but is colored using both light and dark Mango Melody blends, Old Olive light and dark for the leaves and dark Flirty Flamingo for the berries, Mint Macaron light and dark blends for the back ground. Whew – a whole lot of fun!

Remember when using the blends, it’s better to start with the darker shade first and only do a small area then sweep in with the lighter blend to do what – blend together. 😁 The reason for doing small areas is to keep the blend moist so it easily “moves” for the blending process.

I hope you enjoyed todays post. Would you share with me which card you like the most… I’m leaning toward the Highland Heather but I also really like the yellow card. I also liked putting the card stock on an angle as opposed to straight on. Do you have thoughts on that?

May you have a beautiful day – share what you love!
