Stampin’ Up! Abigail Rose for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hello stampers! Today is the always fun Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. You will see some fabulous creations along the hop, so I encourage you to ‘do the tour’. If you have come from Tara’s blog, welcome. If you have simply hopped in, thank you for joining us today.

And our sketch challenge is this…

And here’s the card I created for the challenge. It uses the Abigail Rose 12 x 12 DSP as the focal point. Don’t you just love this DSP? Gorgeous… I colored the one flower with Stampin’ Blends Calypso Coral and Daffodil Delight. For background interest I used the Timeworn 3D Embossing Folder on a Basic White panel and added it directly to the Thick Basic White card base. The next two layers are a piece of Early Espresso and the colored Abigail Rose DSP, adhered together then popped on dimensionals and added to the card front. The sentiment panel is stamped in Early Espresso ink on a Basic White scrap, then added to another strip of Calypso Coral adhered to the front on dimensionals. The sentiment is from the Go To Greetings stamp set. Finally, two Iridescent Pearl Basic Jewels were colored with the Dark Calypso Coral Blends and added beneath the sentiment.

For the inside of the card, I stamped one of the smaller flowers from the coordinating Cottage Rose stamp set in Early Espresso ink on a Basic White panel, then colored it with Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blends. This was adhered to a slightly larger panel of Early Espresso card stock, then added to the inside of the card. Voila!

Abigail Rose, inside

For the envelope, I used the medium rose from Cottage Rose stamp set and stamped the envelope front – Early Espresso ink of course and three more on the envelope flap. I chose not to color these – don’t ask me why, I don’t know. And that was it. Love the versatility of this layout and this DSP. Just change the sentiment and it could be sympathy, birthday, get well – you name it. It isn’t a masculine card, but change the DSP for that :O)

Stampin’ Up! Whitewash Technique Sympathy

Good Monday Morning! We have a glorious morning here today – the temp has dropped about 25 degrees. Yep, it was 88 yesterday, this mornin’ it is 63. Springtime is like that, isn’t it – variable temps.

Today’s card is yet another sympathy card, created using the Whitewash technique. There are two ways to do this: one is to use a water painter and white ink; the other is to use a white watercolor pencil (and sometimes a blender pen. I chose to use the watercolor pencil and no blender pen. I also confess, this is a CASE of a card by Julia Quinn. I changed the colors, sentiment and no ribbon, but the idea comes straight from Julia.

Whitewash Sympathy Card.1

This is a really ‘wow’ color combination, isn’t it? In person, this is absolutely stunning. The card stocks are Orchid Oasis and Fresh Freesia with Starry Sky inking for the stamps. The sparkle comes from the 6×6 In Color Glimmer Paper in Orchid Oasis. This glimmer paper has an ombre effect, light to dark, and that is evident in this die cut. Here’s what I did:

  • Stamp the image from Nature’s Harvest stamp set in Starry Sky ink on the Orchid Oasis panel.
  • With the White Watercolor pencil, color the appropriate flower petals.
  • Mount this panel on a Basic White piece just slightly larger
  • Die cut the ‘spray’ from the Harvest Dies using Orchid Oasis 6×6 In Color Glimmer Paper. Adhere to stamped panel with dabs of liquid glue, noting where NOT to put adhesive :O)
  • Put dimensionals on back of panel and adhere to Fresh Freesia card base
  • Stamp the sentiment from the Nature’s Harvest stamp set in Starry Sky ink onn a Basic White strip and die cut with the banner die in the Harvest Dies. Put dimensionals on the back and add to card front.
  • Final touch: two (2) Classic Matte Dots in White just under the sentiment panel.
Whitewash Sympathy, inside

I chose to use the same size panels for the inside as the front of the card. It adds to the dramatic effect. On the Basic White panel, stamp the smaller floral image from Nature’s Harvest stamp set in Starry sky ink, twice. Adhere the panel to an Orchid Oasis piece slightly larger and attach to the inside of the card. DONE!

Whitewash Sympathy Card.3

I used the same smaller floral for the envelope front, stamping twice in Starry Sky ink. For the flap, I ran an piece of Orchid Oasis through the Fern 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it, trimming to fit. In keeping with the nature theme of the card, this folder seemed perfect for this. Card stock cuts will be listed at the bottom of this post.

Stampin’ Up! Charming Sentiments Bundle w/ Pretty Prints and Sun Prints DSP

Happy Tuesday. I hope you have a day of fun planned. We take our English Springer to the groomer today – he’s looking a bit shaggy, and we just may pick up our boat from where we had it wintered over. The bottom needs to be scraped & painted every year. And well, with hubby’s back surgery just two months ago, we have to be extra careful. So wish us luck!

Today’s card is super easy – the DSP really does most of the work. The fun part is the sentiment. Charming Sentiments is a new bundle and the dies cut out every sentiment in the set, fairly closely and it’s cool – just sayin’ – this is a special bundle you want :O)

Charming Sentiments bundle w/ Pretty Prints & Sun Prints DSP.1

I used a Thick Basic White card base and covered the front with Pretty Prints DSP in Calypso Coral. I layered a panel of Sun Prints DSP 3 1/4 x 4 1/2 and adhered it directly to the front layer. I stamped this gorgeous font sentiment from Charming Sentiments stamp set in Starry Sky and die cut it with the Sentiment Silhouettes Dies. Love, love! Next I took my blending brush and Calypso Coral ink and added color to the die cut, then put dimensionals on the back. The ribbon is the 3/4″ Frayed Ribbon in White laid across the front for dimension, effect, texture – all those elements a card needs, and adhered it with several glue dots. Then I added the sentiment and finally for a bit of sparkle, three Solid Frosted Gems in Night of Navy – and the card front was done. Good masculine kind of card, right?

Charming Sentiments Bundle w/ Pretty Prints, etc.2

For the inside I added a strip of the Pretty Prints near the bottom of a Basic White panel. I stamped the sentiment – yep, from Charming Sentiments, in Night of Navy ink and once dry, used the Blending Brush to add some background color in Calypso Coral ink. The panel was added to the inside of the card with liquid glue and the card was done, done.

Charming Sentiments Bundle w/ DSP.3

Remember a woman asked for a couple of cards for folks moving to their first new home? Well, this is the second card. More of the Pretty Prints DSP for the envelope flap and a sentiment for the front from – guess where- Charming Sentiments stamp set! And… stamped in Starry Sky ink. What’s not to like?!

Stampin’ Up! Triple Stamping with Nature’s Prints

Happy Sunday. Today is concert day for us! WooHoo! OK, maybe that’s enough of that. I have another triple stamping card today – one we made in card class last week. This time it’s more masculine – or could be, inked with Starry Sky using Nature’s Prints. And the layers are off-set for a bit of change. I almost like this better than the one from the other day.

This post was written and saved – but in the wrong spot and so… didn’t get posted. Today is actually MONDAY, the day after our concert :O) – which was really fun. Hopefully this will come through properly today.

Triple Stamping w/ Naturte’s Prints.1

I did all the cutting prior to doing the stamping, it’s just easier that way.

  • Basic White card cuts: 4 x 5 1/4 (2); 3 1/4 x 3; 3 x 1 1/4. Place together using removable tape or glue dots. (as I mentioned the other day, glue dots work fine, but you do have to be ultra careful when taking the papers apart, due to tearing.) My key is putting these together was to have the second panel about 1/2″ from the left edge and the top panel 1/2″ from right edge. That way it looks balanced.
  • Starry Sky card cuts: 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/; 3 1/2 x 3 1/4; 3 1/4 x 2

Stamp the sentiment first: Nature’s Prints in Starry Sky ink. Stamp the Basic White panels (remember they are together) with this beautiful leaf from Nature’s Prints inked with Starry Sky ink. Press firmly but do not wiggle the stamp. Now take basic white stamped pieces apart and adhere to appropriate Starry Sky pieces.The second layer is on dimensionals, while the top layer is adhered with liquid glue. With all in place, add the three Solid Faceted Gems. I used Pool Party but the Night of Navy would look nice too.

Nature’s Prints, inside

This sentiment again comes from the Nature’s Prints stamp set using Starry Sky ink. I stamped the blotch after stamping off twice (and maybe should have stamped off one more time.) This card can so easily be used for ‘thinking of you’ or birthday, and masculine too. Adhere this panel to the inside and done!

Triple Stamping w/ Nature’s Prints.3

For the envelope, I stamped the blotch stamp from Nature’s Prints in Starry Sky ink, stamping-off twice, on the front, and did the same all over the flap. I just forgot to take a picture of it – silly me! I hope you like this card – and this technique. This would also be a perfect sympathy card with the right sentiment; soothing and comforting.

Stampin’ Up! Pansy Petals.2

Hello folks – it’s Monday here and c-o-l-d: 21 degrees w/ winds gusting to 20 mph. what happened to our Spring? Right… Spring means variant weather, so there it is. My card today shouts Spring… and it’s reminiscent of my card for Thursday’s Blog Hop.

Pansy Petals 2.1

Can you see that fun background? It’s the Stitched Greenery Die used on a Basic White piece then adhered directly to the Thick Basic White card base, standard A2 size. The Pansy Petals 12 x 12 DSP is cut 1 x 45 1/4 and adhered directly to 3 1/4 x 4 3/8 Calypso Coral. I wrapped a length of the Cotton Ribbon in Petal Pink around the two, tied a bow & secured it with a glue dot. This was adhered to the card front with Dimensionals.

I stamped the wonderful image from Honeybee Home stamp set with Stazon ink on Shimmery paper. I used Stazon ink as I wanted to watercolor the image and this ink works best with watercoloring. :O) Using a water painter and Daffodil Delight ink, I pressed really hard on the ink pad to get ink onto the lid, and colored the flowers. I did the same process with Soft Succulent ink and a water painter for the leaves on this image. Using the coordinating Honeybee Bloom Dies, I die cut the image, put Mini Dimensionals on the back and adhered it over the ribbon. For a final touch I added three Bumblebee Trinkets.

Pansy Pets 2.2

Here’s a closer look at the sweet Bumblebee Trinkets.

Pansy Petal 2.3

For the inside I used another stamp from the Honeybee Home stamp set, stamped in Stazon ink again, this time on a Basic White panel. These flowers were colored with Calypso Coral ink and a watercolor painter, using the same process as above. Here’s a photo of the ink pad with ink squeezed onto ink pad and a water painter to color the flowers.

Ink pad lid w/ squeezed ink for watercoloring
Flowers watercolored

To the right is the completed inside: stamped & water colored. Notice how the flowers vary in shading – that’s intentional!! No two flowers are exactly the same in nature and shouldn’t be when we color them :O)

The panel was adhered to the inside of the card with liquid glue.

And the envelope… another piece of Pansy Petals DSP adhered to the flap & trimmed to fit. Perfectamundo.

Stampin’ Up! Easter Friends Fun Card

Hello again! It’s a cold Tuesday morning and I have a fun, quick and easy card for you today that just shouts SPRING. It’s made with the Easter Friends stamp set (the bunny) and it’s cute.

Easter Friends, front.1

I began by stamping the bunny in Crumb Cake ink on a Basic White panel 2 1/2 x 4 1/2 scored at the top 1/2″ I colored his nose with a Petal Pink marker. I adhered this to a Blushing Bride piece 2 3/4 x 4 1/4, wrapping the Basic White OVER the Blushing Bride. This was attached to a panel of Crumb Cake 4 1/4 x 5 1/2. I stamped the front sentiment in Crumb Cake ink on a Basic White scrap and die cut it with the Tailor Made Tags dies, then took a length of the Petal Pink Organdy Ribbon and slipped it through the opening, securing the ribbon together with a glue dot. With dimensionals on the back, this was adhered to the bunny. I added Adhesive-Backed Hexagons in Blushing Bride for a bit more pink.

Easter Friends, inside.2

I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set – Easter Friends, masking off a portion of the sentiment, in Crumb Cake ink. At the bottom of this Basic White panel I stamped several grasses in Granny Apple Green ink and layered them. Yep m- still Easter Friends stamp set. The white panel is 2 3/8 x 4. This was adhered to the Blushing Bride panel.

Easter Friends, back.3

Now turn the entire piece over… again with Granny Apple Green ink, I stamped the grasses, layering as I went, onto the Basic White panel (4 x 5 1/4). I then stamped the frolicking duck in Crumb Cake ink. Doesn’t it look as though the duck is dancing? I adhered this to the back of the Crumb Cake and the card was done.

Easter Friends.4

For the envelope I used Subtles 6×6 DSP for the flap, trimming it to fit and stamped the baby chick in Crumb Cake ink. I colored it with So Saffron Blends – not my best! And the card is ready to send!

Easter Friends.5

Stampin’ Up! All for Baby Welcome

Brrr. It’s 21 degrees this morning and our poor rhododendrons are desperate for warmth. We had a teaser of spring the other day – 70 degrees! But it was only for the day. And we are having what feels like arctic weather once again. As I said… Brrr.

My card today uses the All For Baby stamp set with its coordinating Baby Clothes Dies. I confess… this was my first play with this bundle ~ and I loved it. The individual requesting the card said it should be simple, for a new grandmother and the baby was a boy. Sounds easy enough, right? And it was!

All For Baby.1

How to:

  • Thick Basic White card base 8 1/2 x 5 12 scored at 4 1/4.
  • Regular Basic White 4 x 5 14 run through the Tasteful Textile embossing folder and adhered directly to the card front
  • Subtles 6×6 DSP in Balmy Blue was used for the next layer ~ die cut with the Stitched So Sweetly Dies and adhered to the card front with dimensionals, centering it.
  • I used a scrap of Basic White to die cut the onesy with the Baby Clothes Dies, put mini dimensionals on the back and adhered it
  • With Balmy Blue ink and this perfect sentiment from All For Baby, I stamped on a Basic White scrap. I die cut it with Bouquet of Love Dies ‘cuz I really like this banner die :O). I added a 1/4″ strip of Balmy Blue to it with dimensionals and adhered the strip directly to the Subtles 6×6 panel.
  • For a final touch, three Holiday Rhinestone Gems in dark blue were addded.
All For Baby.2
All For Baby.3

The inside:

  • I added a 1/4″ strip of the Subtles 6×6 DSP in Balmy Blue near the bottom of the Basic White panel 3 1/4 x 4 1/2
  • I stamped the bib from All For Baby stamp set in Balmy Blue, then took a Balmy Blue Marker and with the fine tip, made little stitch marks. They barely show but I know I did it!
  • Add the panel to the inside of the card and done…
All For Baby.4

The envelope:

A piece of Subtles 6×6 DSP in Balmy Blue was adhered to the flap and trimmed to fit ~ and that was it.

Love how cute this card is and seems to fit the need: simple, for a grandmother and baby boy :O) And just think… it could be done in so many colors ~ Highland Heather, So Saffron, Pale Papaya, the list goes on and on ~ and there are some really fun dies and stamps in this bundle. Find it in the Annual Catalog.

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.

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.

Stampin’ Up! On the Horizon with Sailing Home

The New Horizons 6×6 DSP can create a card all by itself. Today I have used the Sailing Home stamp set along with the coordinating Smooth Sailing Dies to make the card special for a friend who needs a ‘lift me up.’ It’s also a fun fold…

On the Horizon w/ Sailing Home.1

The card base is Basic White (thick) 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, scored at 4 1/4. Then fold the front piece back on itself to create the fold. Easy peasy! Next, I began by cutting the DSP to a 5 1/4 length, then twice at 1 7/8. That left one piece wider – 2 1/4. The birds are stamped using the On The Horizon stamp set in Misty Moonlight directly onto the New Horizons 6×6 DSP. I then mounted them on panels of Blackberry Bliss 2 x 5 3/8 (2) and 2 3/8 x 5 3/8 and added them to the card. I stamped the sailboat using the Sailing Home stamp set (this person is a sailor) in Misty Moonlight and die cut it using the Smooth Sailing Dies. I put dimensionals on the back and added it to the front panel. To the last panel I stamped the sentiment from On the Horizon stamp set in Blackberry Bliss, taping off the word ‘you’. That word was stamped on the white section left. I then stamped the word ‘breathe’ in Misty Moonlight – also from the On the Horizons stamp set. The three birds are stamped in Misty Moonlight using the Sailing Home stamp set. I underlined the word ‘breathe’ with the Blackberry Bliss marker. For a final touch I added the Rhinestone Waves Basic Jewels -(NEW ITEM) I’ll put my personal note on the back of this card.

On the Horizon w/ Sailing Home.2

For the envelope, I used more of the New Horizons 6×6 DSP to the flap and stamped the anchor from Sailing Home in Smoky Slate ink. Done. Love the simplicity of this.
