Stampin’ Up! Calming Camellia for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Welcome! It’s Thursday and that means we have a special blog hop… love these hops and all the creativity that is shared.

We have a sketch challenge which you will see below – fun sketch. I kept thinking of all kinds of ideas to do for this, but settled on a favorite new (to me)technique called ‘whitewash’ and I did it a bit differently than I shared the other day. You can see that post here.

May be an image of text that says 'Happy Inkin Thursday Blog Hop February 3-Sketch Challenge aasasss'

And here’s my card for this sketch, using the fabulous Calming Camillia stamp set. This set comes when you do a $300 order. That means as a host, you can take orders from others to get to this amount. It’s a win-win. And don’t forget, Sale-a-bration is on until Feb 28 and lots more freebies come during this time when you place an order of $50 or more. But… on with how to make this card. 🙂

Calming Camillia.1

Stamp the flower from Calming Camillia on a Night of Navy panel with Night of Navy ink. Color the flowers only using an empty but damp water painter brush and Whisper White ink. In other words, the brush itself was still wet but the holder just had drops of water in it. I used an acrylic block and placed it on the white ink pad. covering it with ink. I took my brush and used the block as my ink pad. With this technique the ink went on more easily – and I colored only the flowers. These I wanted to stand out. I used just the very tip of my brush to create some highlights along various edges. Once that was good and dry, I ruffed the edges with the side of my paper snips. I cut another panel of New Horizons 6×6 DSP and ruffed the edges of it as well. This gives it kind of a vintage look, don’t you think so? I adhered the two together with liquid glue, offsetting the DSP panel.

I took another piece of the Night of Navy card stock and ran it through the Hive 3D embossing folder, then ran it through again with the Timeworn 3D embossing folder, then roughed the edges of that panel too. I laid a length of Flowers For every Season Ribbon Combo pack on the card base then adhered the embossed panel to the Night of Navy card base. I tied a bow on the side, put dimensionals on my square pieces and adhered this over the ribbon. At this point I felt the card needed a little more color to it, so I die cut the fun curved panel from the Brilliant Rainbow Dies and a scrap of the New horizons 6×6 DSP, slipped it under the ribbon and adhered it with dabs of liquid glue. For a final touch I added three Polished Dots to the floral panel and the card front was done.

Calming Camillia.2

For the inside…

Calming Camillia, inside.3

I stamped the leaf image from Calming Camillia in Night of Navy ink on a Basic White panel, then added a couple of the flourishes from the stamp set, also stamping in Night of Navy ink. The sentiment also comes from Calming Camillia stamp set and was stamped in Night of Navy ink. I added this stamped panel to the inside of the card with liquid glue.

For the envelope…

Calming Camillia.4

More of the New Horizons 6×6 DSP was adhered to the envelope flap. For the front of the envelope a beautiful leaf from Calming Camillia was stamped in Night of Navy ink.

This is a wonderfully versatile card: it could be used for a birthday, sympathy or simply just a note to someone special. I love that it can be used for several different occasions.

Stampin’ Up! Sympathy with Delicate Dahlias

Wow – it’s Friday! Hurricane Ida has left us a little soggier than usual, but otherwise in good form, thank goodness. Today is c-o-o-l, a mere 54 degrees ~ unusual for this time of year. But I’ll take it!

Today’s card is another sympathy card using the wonderful Delicate Dahlias stamp set and Merry Merlot ink. Before I go into detail about the card, let me remind you this stamp is available as a FREE product during Sale-a-bration (NOW!) when placing a $50 order.

Sympathy w/ Delicate Dahlias.1

This is a two-step stamp, meaning there is an outline stamp for the dahlia and leaves & a filler stamp for both as well – two step 🙂 One of the things that’s really helpful when receiving a two step stamp is to mark on the flat side of the stamp a ‘matching point’ – doing this on both the outline and filler stamp. This will save lots of frustration when trying to make stamps line up. My card panel is Very Vanilla and I stamped opposite corners, first with the outline stamp, then the filler stamp. I also stamped the outline stamp on a piece of sticky note and fussy cut it so as to use it as a mask for stamping the leaves. Once I had the mask in place I stamped the leaves in Pear Pizzazz ink. When doing the filler for the leaves, I stamped off once first. The sentiment is from this same stamp set – Delicate Dahlias, stamped on a Very vanilla panel and die cut with the Ornate Frames Dies. I then cut a length of the Fine Art Ribbon, used Stampin’ Seal across the back and adhered it on the card front. The sentiment panelm got dimensionals and attached over the ribbon. I added three Wonderful gems to tie it together.

This panel was adhered to a slightly larger piece of Merry Merlot then attached to the Pear Pizzazz card base with dimensionals.

Sympathy w/ Delicate Dahlias.2

For the inside I stamped another of the flowers from Delicate Dahlias with the same two-step method: outline stamp in Merry Merlot ink, then filler stamp in Merry merlot ink stamped off once. And the Vary Vanilla panel was added to a slightly larger Merry Merlot then into the inside of the card ~ all with liquid glue. You could certainly use Stampin’ Seal instead, I just prefer the liquid glue for wiggle room 🙂

For the very vanilla envelope, I covered the flap with Neutrals 6×6 DSP in Merry Merlot then trimmed it to fit. The front of the envelope got the same treatment of a two-step stamp: outline stamp first in Merry Merlot ink, tghen the filler stamp. And voila! I like the color combination and I love this flower! I think this stamp set would be lovely in Misty Moonlight too – an odd color for this flower, but I think I have to do one…

If you do not have a demonstrator and need an Annual 2021 Catalog OR Jul-Dec 2021 Mini Catalog, please reach out to me – happy to send one to you. And when I send it, there will be a Sale-a-bration catalog in with it! That means more FREE items to choose from with every order of $50, or $100 or multiples of that.

Stampin’ Up! Seasoned Swirls Sympathy

It’s Thursday and almost the weekend… what’s up? I hope you are safe… things have been so crazy lately. Today’s card is one of sympathy using the Seasoned Swirls Dies and Bloom Where You’re Planted DSP. Let’s take a look.

Seasoned Swirls Sympathy.1

The card base is Crumb Cake with a layer of Merry Merlot card stock then a layer of Bloom Where You’re Planted – all adhered with either liquid glue or Stampin’ Seal. I then die cut two wreaths from Kraft 6×6 DSP which can be found in the Jul-Dec 2021 Mini Catalog. I adhered these two together with dots of liquid glue then put mini dimensionals on the back in strategic places. I wanted to ‘dress it up’ a bit so die cut some small leaves from Be Dazzled 6×6 DSP (a FREE item during Sale-a-bration), also from the Seasoned Swirls Dies, and adhered those with dots of liquid glue. I trimmed down some Metallic Ribbon (Cherry Cobbler & Gold), made a bow and attached it with a glue dot.I then added some Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels for more sparkle – and really liked the look!

I stamped the sentiment from Inspired Thought stamp set in Merry Merlot ink on a Basic White strip and die cut it with the Messages Die. I cut another strip of Merry Merlot card stock and added the sentiment panel to it with dimensionals. The banner was added to the card front with liquid glue. Finally I added three more of the Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels and was done with the front.

Seasonal Swirls Sympathy.2

For the inside I kept it pretty simple – a sentiment from Inspired Thoughts stamped in Merry Merlot ink on a Basic White panel. This was attached to a Merry Merlot piece then added to the inside of the card. Finis!

Seasoned Swirls Sympathy.3

For the envelope I did nothing more than add Bloom Where You’re Planted DSP to the flap and trimmed it to fit. And that was it.

Stampin’ Up! Forever Greenery Sympathy

Sympathy cards can be really difficult to make, mostly because of the subject. Forever Greenery DSP helps to lighten that burden with beautiful papers. My first card/s use the Forever Gold Laser-Cut SDSP as embellishment and make this simple and elegant.

The layout for these two cards is exactly the same, I just used different papers from the DSP pack and a circular laser-cut piece vs a rectangular laser-cut. It’s wonderful how different these two are and yet so similar. The sentiment comes from Path of Petals stamp set for both cards. For the card on the left, I used a 2″ circle punch to create the circle and stamped leaves in Pretty Peacock ink using the Forever Fern stamp set. You also see Pear Pizzazz card stock outlining the DSP. On the card at right I used leaves from Touched My Heart stamp set and stamped in Soft Sea Foam ink, same as the card stock behind the DSP. I embellished both cards with Metallic Pearls.

And here are the insides for these two cards

The card on left is stamped in Pretty Peacock: the sentiment from Path of Petals stamp set, leaves from the Forever Fern stamp set. The card at right uses the stamps from Touched My Heart stamp set stamped in Pretty Peacock ink and the leaves stamped in Soft Sea Foam ink.

This is the second set of sympathy cards – again same layout, just different papers and embellishments.

Again – same layout for these two. The backing for the DSP and sentiment band on the left card is Very Vanilla card stock. The ribbon is Very Vanilla / Gold Pleated ribbon and again I used Metallic Pearls for embellishment. The card on the right uses Pear Pizzazz card stock for backing of the DSP and for the sentiment panel, and Pearl Basic Jewels for embellishment. The ribbon is Old Olive/ Pretty Peacock 3/8″ Ribbon – a pretty double-sided one. Both use the sentiment from Woven Heirlooms stamp set.

And here are the insides of each.

The card on the left shows Soft Sea Foam card stock for the backing of the Very Vanilla card stock. It was stamped with leaves from the Forever Fern stamp set in Soft Sea Foam ink. The card on the right is stamped in Pretty Peacock ink on Basic White card stock and uses the Woven Heirlooms stamp set.

Voila – four sympathy cards created in a flash. Here they are with the envelopes.

Below is a product list of items used in today’s projects. They come from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog ~ and those products are available now for purchase. You will find them in the product list below. As a reminder… I’ve made it easy for you to simply ‘add all to cart’. 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. When the order is over $150, you still receive that free gift from me, but SU! has Stampin’ Rewards that may be used for additional products, so don’t use the host code at that time. If you have questions just let me know.

Pretty Peacock is one of the 2019-2021 In Colors that is retiring soon. Get your while supplies last!

May you have a beautiful day.
