Stampin’ Up! Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hi folks! It’s time for our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. We have a sketch challenge that’s extra good…

This card has a background of Timber 3D Embossing Folder on a Basic White panel. It was adhered to the Thick Basic White card base. On top of that are a strip of Gingham Cottage DSP from the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog on a piece of So Saffron card stock adhered in place. The Pear Pizzazz strip is adhered with liquid glue, with the die cut pieces attached with dimensionals. The die cut pieces are Rings of Love DSP, a free item during Sale-a-bration die cut with the largest Layering Circles die. Isn’t this DSP gorgeous? As I mentioned, it’s FREE during Sale-a-bration with a $50 purchase as long as supplies last… ok, I divert. The DSP is adhered to a scalloped Night of Navy piece, die cut with the largest of the scalloped Layering Circles dies. The Basic White strip is stamped in Night of Navy ink using Happiness Abounds stamp set. I added three Night of Navy Solid Faceted Gems as a final touch.

What do we do with a sketch like this?it inspired me to create a couple of different cards… so totally different, yet both the same. Let’s take a peek at the first card.
Happy Inkin’ Thur Blog Hop 7/21.1

For the inside… I stamped the sentiment in Night of Navy ink using the Happiness Abounds stamp set. I also stamped the leaf image in second generation Pear Pizzazz ink right over it – of course on a Basic White panel. I found on my desk this ‘frame’ die cut using the Deckled Rectangles Dies, and added it to the edge of the Basic White panel, then attached it to the inside of the card.

And now… the second card.

Happy Inkin’ Thur Blog Hop, card 2.2

The card base is Melon Mambo card stock, layered with Wonderful World DSP on a Basic White strip, adhered to the card base. I used the Layering Circles Dies to cut yet another piece of the Wonderful World DSP. This is attached to a scalloped die cut with the largest of the Layering Circles Dies in scallop from Basic White. The same sentiment was used on the Basic White strip, but stamped in Mossy Meadow ink. I used three Melon Mambo Solid Faceted Gems for a bit of glam.

For the inside…

I first stamped the sentiment from Happiness Abounds stamp set in Melon Mambo ink. The rose is Melon Mambo ink – second generation, but should have been at least third generation, as it covers up the sentiment.

Both of these cards are beautiful ~ one is significantly softer while the other is more bold, but they tell the truth either way. Now, enjoy the hop as you move around the various blogs.

Stampin’ Up! Friends Are Like Seashells Welcome

We had quite a ‘show’ on our bird feeders yesterday: Baltimore Orioles (both male & female), Rose Breasted Grosbeak, Red-Bellied Woodpeckers, Downy Woodpeckers, Catbird and Cardinals. Oh my, we had trouble getting work done. God’s creations are just amazing and I rarely get my fill. But yesterday was amazing! The Orioles were around the day before, but only a couple. This time there were at least four males and two females. They rarely stay long, but we had put out grape jelly and an orange cut in half and they really were going for it. Such glorious creatures!

New neighbors are moving in later this month and I’m creating a list of who lives where on our street to help them get acquainted. Our street is a cul de sac and it’s ideal for kids and bicycles and basketball – and we all know one another. If we need anything, we can count on our neighbors. Along with the listing of who lives where, I’ve made a card (surprise!)

Friends Are Like Seashells Welcome – #1

This card begins with a Sahara Sand card base. Adhered to that is a panel of Sand & Sea DSP that has been run through the painted Texture 3D embossing folder. I had created some time ago, some of my own shimmer paper using Blushing Bride card stock and the Frost White, which is now retired. Using the die as a template, I stamped the various shell designs on the now shimmery Blushing Bride card stock with various inks: Blushing Bride, Mango Melody and Sahara Sand. I ran the Blushing Bride piece through the die cutting machine with the Seaside Seashells Dies and then through the Seashells 3D embossing folder, then fussy cut the various shells and used what I needed for this card – and saved the others for another project. I also ran a piece of the Shimmer paper through using only a portion of the same die (oops! I think that paper is retired! You could use the Pearlescent paper. It’s just a bit darker.) That looks a lot like a piece of coral to me and was a perfect contrast for this card.

I began layering the pieces: the largest shell was adhered with dimensionals; the small pink shell was adhered directly to the pale Shimmer paper; the ‘coral’ piece was adhered with both liquid glue at the base and a couple of mini dimensionals to add depth. I stamped the sentiment with Sahara Sand ink on Pearlescent Paper (see how it is just a bit darker?) and fussy cut it then added it to the card with dimensionals. And the card front was done!

Friends Are Like Seashells Welcome, inside – #2

For the inside I adhered a strip of the Sand & Sea DSP that had been run through the Painted Texture 3D embossing folder then stamped the sand dollar with Sahara Sand ink, adhered the panel to the inside of the card and voila!

Friends Are Like Seashells Welcome – #3

For the envelope I adhered two pieces of coordinating card stock to the envelope flap: Sand & Sea DSP + Sahara Sand and ran that through the Painted Texture 3D embossing folder. For the front of the envelope I adhered one of the fussy cut shells with liquid glue – and the card is ready to give to our new neighbors when they move in later this month. Nothing like being prepared!

Stampin’ Up! Friends Are Like Seashells

WOOHOO! Are you reveling in the the retirement list? It IS pretty amazing, isn’t it? Just remember some items are retiring AS A BUNDLE and will be carried over into the new catalog… so look carefully at the list. Bundles, of course, are always 10% less expensive than when separated into two individual items. Just sayin’. At the end of today’s post I will again share the retirement list and connections to my online store.

Today’s project(s) are two cards using the Friends Are Like Seashells bundle and the Seashells 3D Embossing Folder which coordinates with this et. I’ve used other products as well and will list those as I give directions.

Here are the two cards.

These two are so different but generally use the same ingredients. Directions for each card follows.

Card #1

  • Card base is Pool Party card stock 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2
  • Next layer is Pretty Peacock embossed with the Seabed 3D embossing folder (4 x 5 1/4) and adhered with Seal +
  • The top layer is Pearlescent Paper that has been die cut with the Seaside Seashells Dies, then a Blending Brush used to color the undersea leaves with Pear Pizzazz ink, then each shell stamped: Balmy Blue, Petal Pink, Crumb Cake, Gorgeous Grape and finally So Saffron ink. Allow to dry thoroughly then run through the Seashells 3D embossing folder. Oh what beautiful texture this gives! I put dimensionals all over trying to support even many of the broadest seaweed. Of course I had to trim some of the dimensionals into strips and I also used mini dimensionals too. Once I had the dimensionals where I wanted them I adhered it over the Pretty Peacock. This bold contrast really makes it pop.
  • I added three Opal Rounds.
  • On a 3/4″ strip of Very Vanilla card stock I stamped the sentiment in Balmy Blue using the A Wish for everything stamp set.. I adhered this to a 7/8″ layer of Pretty Peacock with liquid glue and punched the end with the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch. I wrapped Linen thread around the end of the banner a couple of times and tied a sweet bow. I added two more of the opal Rounds to the banner, attached dimensionals to the back and adhered it to the card. Voila!

For the inside of this card I adhered a Pretty Peacock panel 4 x 5 1/4 with liquid glue. I stamped the shell in Petal Pink then the sentiment in Balmy Blue ink – on a Very Vanilla piece 3 7/8 x 5 1/8. The sentiment comes from the Forever Fern stamp set. This was adhered with liquid glue and the card was done.

For the envelope I took a strip of Pretty Peacock and ran it through the Seabed 3D embossing folder then adhered it to the envelope flap with liquid glue. I took a couple of the underwater seaweed stamps and stamped them on the front of the envelope, one in full strength Pear Pizzazz, the other in stamped-off Pear Pizzazz.

Love this card! And here’s a HELPFUL HINT… the ink takes a bit of time to dry on the Pearlescent Paper. Use that time to do the inside of the card, the banner, the envelope.

Card #2

  • I began this card by first creating the pearl Blushing Bride card stock for the seashells. I did that by using my Blending Brush and the Frost White Shimmer Paint. I used my Blending Brush working in small sections of the paper and brushed it on in circles, trying not to touch the paper, just the edges. Touching the paper while the shimmer paint is wet leaves fingerprints and you don’t want that. Set it aside to dry and work on the rest of the card. By the way ~ this is beautiful when dry!
  • The card base is Basic Gray card stock 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 scored at 4 1/4. I embossed the front of the card with the Seabed Embossing Folder. It didn’t really show in the photo – not sure why…
  • I stamped my sentiment on a piece of Very Vanilla card stock with Crumb Cake ink and the Friends are like Seashells stamp set. I die cut it with the Painted Labels Dies.
  • While I was waiting for the pearlizing to dry I went ahead and did the envelope… I ran the flap through the Seashells Embossing Folder. How to do this? With the flap in the folder, fold the envelope around the folder and put it through your machine. 🙂 For the front of the envelope I stamped a starfish in Crumb Cake ink and the envelope was done.
  • With the Blushing Bride pearlized paper dry I die cut the paper with the Seaside Shells Die. I then stamped the Nautilus shell with more Blushing Bride ink and the conch shell with Balmy Blue ink and set them aside to dry.
  • While that was drying I did the inside of the card… I stamped the sentiment from the Friends are like Seashells in Crumb Cake ink then the starfish, also in Crumb Cake ink – on a panel of Very Vanilla card stock 3 3/4 x 5. I adhered this to a panel of Blushing Bride 4 x 5 1/4 with liquid glue. These were adhered to the inside of the card, again with liquid glue.
  • Back to the stamped & die cut shells… I ran them through the Seashells 3 D Embossing and oh my, they almost look real. I love how they turned out. I put the dimensionals on the back and adhered them where I wanted.
  • I added a large Opal Rounds to the banner then put dimensionals on the right side and Stampin’ Seal on the left and put in place. I added two more Opal Rounds to the card front and voila – all done!

Yep – got over zealous and wrote on the card before taking the photo… ugh! And it’s hard to see the embossed envelope flap or the embossing on the card front, but I did do it. Guess I didn’t have my lights set properly 😦

These two cards didn’t take that long to do ~ and it’s fun creating something so different with the same supplies. This makes gorgeous cards! Love the font of the sentiments and the sentiments themselves are nice too. Here they are again – side by side.

If I can help you in any way to order these items, or others, please give me a holler. As a thank you to my customers, when the order is between $50-$150 I offer a SU! item of your choice valued at $10. Remember to use MY CURRENT HOST CODE – XTK4JNGQ– good Mar 16 – 31.
