Stampin’ Up! Twigs & Sprigs Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hello there! It’s our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop and I’ve a fun card to share with you today. We have a sketch challenge and I’m using three of the new In Colors and a couple of embossing folders to share with you.

And here’s our sketch challenge for this week.

And here’s what I created for the challenge… embossing folders to create texture and share in new product!

Twigs & Sprigs EF.1

Super fun – so out of my ordinary with color combo, but I love it! I started with a Tahitian Tide card base, and cut another of the same card stock in 4 1/4 x 5 12, embossed that piece with the Stripes & Splatters Embossing Folder (EF) using the splatters EF and adhered directly to the front of the card.

I cut a panel of Starry Sky 2 7/8 x 3 7/8 and put dimensionals on the back. Next I ran a panel of Parakeet Party cut to the same size through the Cut & Emboss machine with the Twigs & Sprigs EF, layered it off-center on the Starry Sky panel and adhered the two together with liquid glue, then with dimensionals on the back of the Starry Sky piece, added them both to the card front. I cut a strip of Starry Sky 5/8 x about 2 1/2, stamped the sentiment from Charming Sentiments in VersaMark ink. I then sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder and heat set it with the Heat Tool. I added two 2022-2024 In Color Matte Decorative Dots in Parakeet Party to the banner, put dimensionals on the back and added it to the card. DONE!

Twigs & Sprigs, inside

For the inside, I again used the Charming Sentiments stamp set to stamp the sentiment directly on the inside of the card in Starry Sky ink. I did this using the Stamparatus… cuz I needed the next layer, the Basic White panel to be in the perfect spot.

With the Basic White panel in place, I stamped it with Starry Sky without re-inking, removed the Basic White panel and die cut the words with the new & fabulous Sentiment Silhouette Dies (coordinates with the Charming Sentiments stamp set and as a bundle is 10% off!). I then adhered the Basic White panel to the inside of the card & voila. :O) I hadn’t done this before and am really pleased with the way it turned out. Isn’t that fun?

OK, card was complete, time to do the envelope…remember the words die cut from the Basic White inside panel? I adhered them with liquid glue to the envelope front. For the flap, I ran a piece of Starry Sky card stock through the Stripes & Splatters EF, using the stripes EF, adhered it to the flap & trimmed to fit. Bingo.

Let me tell you about the Twigs & Sprigs Embossing Fold & Die – it’s two parts… the die cuts all the twigs & sprigs from the EF so they can be used in a fun way on another card. I was playing you see, wanted to know what it would do… and it’s run through together, at the same time. To create this card front, I didn’t use the die, just the EF. You understood that, right? Good! Just wanted to be sure. 😏

Stampin’ Up! Sweet Hearts Dies for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

WooHoo ~ it’s Thursday and time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. You’re going to see some wonderful ideas from this group, so let’s get on with it.

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is 18034290_10213018857694437_1570318010991291595_n.jpg

And we have a sketch challenge this week that is kinda fun – and you will see many ideas for making this sketch shine.

May be an image of text that says 'Happy Inkin Thursday Blog Hop January 20- Sketch Challenge'

My card is a Note card and I’v e chosen to work with the Abstract Beauty 4 x 6 SDSP and the Sweet Hearts Dies. Let’s take a peak.

Sweet Hearts Dies.1

Are these tiny hearts sweet or what?! The die I used cuts four of these at a time which makes it really easily to die cut multiples. As I look at this, I’m wondering why I didn’t add another strip of color to the inside of the Abstract Beauty 4×6 SDSP… Hmmm. A bit of ribbon maybe. Well, another card another day 🙂 These note cards are 3 1/2 x 5, so I cut a panel of Basic White card stock just that size, stamped the sentiment (from Rainbow of Happiness stamp set) in Magenta Madness ink, then ran this through the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder. I added the two narrow strips of the Abstract Beauty 4×6 SDSP to each side. I die cut the hearts from the same SDSP. The top gold heart is on a mini dimensional cut down to fit. The other hearts are added with dabs of liquid glue, and I put the dot of glue right on the card front in lieu of the heart.

For the inside of the card….

Sweet Heart Dies.2

I added another strip of the Abstract Beauty 4×6 SDSP to the right inside of the card and final heart die cut. Sweet, simple.

Sweet Heart Dies.3

For the envelope I stamped the front with the same sentiment from Rainbows of Happiness stamp set buty used Blushing Bride ink. And for envelope flap, a piece of Simply Marbelous 6×6 DSP (FREE during Sale-a-bration!) adhered with liquid glue and trimmed to fit.

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???

Stampin’ Up! Artfully Layered Fun Fold Thank You

Hello again! It’s Saturday… and I hope you have a day to relax a bit from the stresses of everyday obligations, AND an opportunity to play in your crafty place. :O) I’m sharing a fun fold today, an uneven gate fold card that is super easy to do. But first I want to share some snow photos of yesterday’s storm. We got about 6-8″ (it was hard to tell because it compacted ‘cuz it was a bit wet, not fluffy) and it was like waking in a wintry wonderland ~ and it kept coming for several more hours. ❄️

Charlie Brown tree on patio table
Kousa Dogwood in our back yard
Spruce in our front yard

Luckily our neighbor has a snowblower & cleared our driveway – so grateful ‘cuz the snow was heavy!

OK, the card… this goes out today to hubby’s sister who lives in Hawaii. She sent us homemade Baklava! This new DSP and coordinating stamp/ dies seemed perfect for her.

Artfully Layered Thank You.1

It’s obvious this is a lopsided, or perhaps we should say, uneven gate fold card. By scoring the 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 card base at 2 3/4 & 7, this makes it uneven and just a bit different. Aren’t these fun dies too? The larger almost looks like the top of a pineapple :O) (IDEA!) It was die cut from Pear Pizzazz card stock using the Tropical Layers dies (10% off when purchasing the bundle!), then sponged on the edges with a sponge dauber and Old Olive ink. The front frond was die cut with Old Olive card stock and the veining was die cut with Just Jade card stock. Great color combination, don’t you think? The DSP layers are… Artfully Composed DSP – all of these products are new in the Jan-Jun 2022 Mini Catalog. And what about that fun edge die! Yep – it’s from the same Tropical Layers die set. That was die cut in Basic Black card stock, same as the card base. I also used the Tailored Tag Punch to create the end for the thank you banner. I’ve also used Pale Papaya card stock for the backing of the Artfully Composed DSP. And the sentiment – yep, from the same Artfully Layered stamp set. I used the Classic Matte Dots in White to accent the sentiment on the front.

Let’s take a peek at the inside…

Artfully Layered thank you.2, inside

Do you see the fun hash marks? That’s from the Tropical Layers Dies! While it cut through the paper, it doesn’t have an edge to make a cutout. It’s perfect for adding texture and a little fun to a card. The sentiment is stamped in Memento Black ink and comes from the Artfully Layered stamp set.

Here’s what I did with the envelope…

Artfully Layered thank you.3

Here I used more of the Artfully Composed DSP for the envelope flap. For the front of the envelope I stamped this fun frond in Just Jade ink using the Artfully Layered stamp set. It adds to the tropical look of the other leaves on the DSP :O)

I can’t wait to see what you do with this fun stamp & die set AND the gorgeous DSP – and how you use this uneven gate fold idea to make it your own. Please do share with me!

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. AND… I have the Jan-Jun 2022 Mini Catalog and the 4 January to 28 February 2022 Sale-a-bration catalogs and can send those as well! When ordering, please also use current host code: R6D2 7PHD.

Stampin’ Up! Flowers of Friendship Mini PP

Guess what today is… the day before the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog goes LIVE! Excitement!!! I’m sharing with you today one of the bundles: Flowers of Friendship, which includes a punch, Flowers & Leaves Punch – and I’ve used it and one of the Mini Paper Pumpkin boxes.

Flowers of Friendship Mini PP

Isn’t this fun? I began by adhering the various papers to the box top: Pool Party for the foundation layer, then a panel of Pattern Party DSP and another layer of the same DSP but a different pattern, obviously. I then stamped the various flowers, leaves in Memento Black ink – but oh wait – I created a template for that!

Flowers & Leaves Punch template

To create the template… punch, then use that to place the stamps on the acrylic block. This allows you to stamp those four, then punch all four. So… stamp (I used memento Black ink), color each (I’ll explain), then punch. Neat, huh?! You can see I did that several times.

I used several Stampin’ Blends for coloring: Light Pool Party for the leaves, Pale Papaya, Highland Heather, Flirty Flamingo & one of the NEW In Colors, Polished Pink. When looking at the box, you’ll notice I also created a single flower stamped in Polished Pink then colored with Stampin’ Blends Flirty Flamingo & Polished Pink.. For the flower centers I used Playing with Patterns Resin Dots. Some of the flowers In layered together with dimensionals. The leaves were adhered with liquid glue to the backs of the flowers. I adhered everything to the Pool Party sentiment banner then stamped the sentiment in Memento Black ink. For the final touch, ‘cuz it needed something… I added a bit of Sheer Ribbon in Pool Party and attached it with a glue dot to the back of the flower. I adhered the sentiment banner with Seal +.

Love this! Now to fill it… maybe with candies or note cards or… a combination. Fun! Hope you like.

Thanks for stopping by.

May you have a beautiful day.

SU! Boho Indigo #2 on Notecard

Hi Everyone! It is b-e-a-u-t-i-f-u-l here in NJ, USA… Cool temps, low humidity – yes – I could accept this for a while 😁… Just perfect!

My card for today is another Boho Indigo on a Notecard. I had stamped three vases in Memento Black ink some time ago and they have been sitting on my workspace waiting patiently to be used. I swear a little gremlin kept pushing them forward saying “use me, use me”. Must be my imagination 🙂

Card…

Boho Indigo 2

What we have is three colors (a couple of shades of green but that’s ok): a Petal Pink from the Peony Garden DSP, solid Petal Pink cs , Whisper White cs (Postage Stamp Punch, sentiment banners and of course the Notecard, and Pear Pizzazz (+ Old Olive 1/4″ Ribbon from the Ornate Garden Ribbon Combo Pack).

Stamp the vase from the Boho Indigo stamp set in Memento Black ink. Add dimesnionals to it and adhere to a Whisper White piece that has been punched using the Postage Stamp Punch. (Love this punch – such a sweet border it creates…) Die cut the leaves (twice) from Pear Pizzazz cs using the Boho Indigo coordinating dies. Trim the extended stems and adhere with liquid glue to the Whisper White Postage Stamp Punch. Adhere this vase ‘decor’ to a panel of the Petal Pink from the Peony Garden DSP with liquid glue, then to a solid piece of Petal Pink cs. Add a 1/4 length of Pear Pizzazz cs to the Notecard front, then add the Petal Pink completed panel with dimensionals.Add the folded folded 1/4″ Old Olive Ribbon with a glue dot I wanted this to be a thank you card… so I pulled out Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set and stamped the sentiment on a 1/4″ Whisper White strip and cut it apart adding a banner end to the ‘thanks’ word. I adhered these with liquid glue.

For the envelope I adhered the same Peony Garden DSP to the envelope flap then stamped the ‘fleur’ across the bottom with Pear Pizzazz ink.

Thanks for stopping by.

May you have a beautiful day.

Card Cuts for this card…

  • Petal Pink 2 3/8 x 4 3/8
  • Peony Garden DSP 2 x 4
  • Whisper White for the Postage Stamp Punch – approximately 1 3/4 x 2 1/2 + 1/4″ strip for sentiment approximately 2″ in length

Stampin’ Up! Good Morning Magnolia

Today’s card is made with the amazing Stampin’ Up! Good Morning Magnolia stamp set from the 2019-2020 Annual Catalogue. This stamp set has additional options … first there are the two stamp sets, then matching dies and finally an embossing folder. Today we use just the one stamp set and the embossing folder. The card is elegant and depending on the sentiment used, could be for many purposes. This is a thank you card, for I’m grateful for a lot, and during this time especially it seems appropriate to give thanks. Let take a look…

And here are the details on how to make it:

  • Smokey Slate card stock 4 1/4″ x 11″
  • Night of Navy 4″ x 5 1/4″ (cut 2, one for the inside)
  • Silver Foil 4 1/8″ x5 1/8″, 2 7/8″ x 4 1/8″
  • Whisper White 3 7/9″ x 5 1/8″ (for the inside)

 

  • With your embossing buddy, rub one panel of the Night of Navy,. With Versamark ink, stamp the large flower from Good Morning Magnolia, sprinkle with silver embossing powder and heat set. Make certain all is glistening silver before setting aside to cool.

Let’s create the inside at this point and come back to the front later.

  • Adhere the second panel of Night of Navy to the inside, using liquid glue.
  • With your Whisper White cs, stamp the sentiment and leaves with Night of Navy ink. Adhere this panel to the inside Night of Navy.

Now back to the front..

  • With the Stitched Rectangles, cut the center of that magnificent magnolia.
  • Adhere the larger section of the magnolia to the larger silver foil using snail.
  • Adhere the smaller piece to the smaller Silver Foil with snail. Add dimensionals to this piece and adhere to the larger magnolia, matching all of the floral design.
  • TIP…Adhering  to foil with liquid glue is slippery and the paper often moves. I strongly encourage using snail or dimensionals when adhering to foil papers.

The envelope…

  • Cut a piece of Night of Navy 2 1/4″ x 6″, spritz with water to soften the paper fibers and run through the Magnolia Lane 3D embossing folder.
  • Adhere to the envelope flap with liquid glue and trim.
  • Stamp the leaf in the lower left corner of the envelope front with Night of Navy ink. (I might have taken my picture a bit early and didn’t capture this, but I did do it!)

Stampin’ Up! Scalloped Notecards and Tulip Builder Punch

Today’s card is made using the Stampin’ Up! Scalloped Notecards and Tulip Builder Punch AND the Pleased as Punch DSP that is a free item when purchasing at least $50 worth of product during the final days of Sale-a-bration.

Before we get to the card… how are you doing? With the health crisis everyone is experiencing, are you feeling closed in or is this a time to “get things done” or a time to meditate or a time to be outside? Before we see the card for today, I will share a picture of myself with our dear English Springer Spaniel Rusty. He is eight but thinks he is 2! We three, hubby was along too, visited a state park nearby and took a wonderful walk. Rusty loved every step and smell! Hubby took the picture so obviously isn’t in it… We live on the East Coast and the water in these photos  is leading to Barnegat Bay. Here they are…

Peaceful, right? It is definitely a great place to visit, walk around, feel connected to Mother Nature and our Almighty Maker.

Please follow the guidelines the CDC is recommending. May you and family be safe and stay well.

 

Now to the card of today…

Does this card shout Spring or what? Here are the details…

  • Using the Pleased as Punch DSP, use the Tulip Builder Punch to punch the desired tulips. I did three. What’s kind of fun is the reverse side of this paper is the wonderful green design you see used for the leaves on this card. Pretty neat, huh? Stampin’ Up! does it right!
  • Using the Timeless Tulips stamp set, stamp the stems in Granny Apple Green.
  • Adhere the Tulip punches… the bottom or tulip on the far right is adhered with liquid glue. The yellow tulip is adhered with one layer of dimensionals. The pink tulip is adhered using two layers of dimensionals.
  • Next I placed the leaves: far right is adhered with liquid glue; bottom left tulip is adhered with one layer of dimensionals; the middle leaf is adhered with a double layer of dimensionals.
  • Oh I love this bow… it is Petal Pink silver edge ribbon and just really adds a special touch to the card. It was adhered with a dimensional cut in half.
  • The sentiment was stamped with the Ornate Thanks stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento ink on a 1/2′ strip of Whisper White. Trim as shown and adhere with dimesnionals.
  • For the inside I adhered a 1/2″ x 5″ strip of the Pleased As Punch DSP to the far right edge. When the card is closed it shows beyond the scalloped edge 🙂 I also stamped the sentiment THANKS from the Ornate Thanks stamp set. CARD IS COMPLETE!!! So fun.
  • On the envelope front I stamped the word ‘seriously,’ from the Ornate Thanks stamp set. It helps the individual understand even before opening the card that there is a special note inside.

Thank you for stopping by. I hope you like… I wish I could see the person who is receiving this card when they open it – but it’s going in the mail. You know how that is…

May you have a beautiful day. Make someone happy by sending them a handmade card.

 

Stampin’ Up! Ornate Thanks, Ornate Borders Dies, So Very Vellum Specialty DSP

Today’s card makes use of the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Thanks and Ornate Borders Dies, and So Very Vellum Specialty DSP and the Eyelet Lace embossing folder. It was inspired by TGIF Challenges #tgifc255. Here it is in all it’s glory – feminine and fresh, bringing a note of thanks to the receiver…

Here are the details for the card front:

  • Soft Seafoam 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″
  • So Very Vellum 3 3/4″ x 5 1/2″
  • Whisper White 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, 1/2″ x 3″ strip for the sentiment

 

  • Use the border die from the Ornate Borders dies to create this wonderful delicate edge. Adhere this to the left front of the So Very Vellum SDSP. This takes a very thin line of liquid glue. Adhere this, again with liquid glue, just along where the die edge is attached to the vellum. This is important – if glue is anywhere else on the vellum it will show. You don’t want that!
  • Stamp the sentiment from Ornate Thanks with Tuxedo Black Memento ink. Angle the one end. Put on dimesionals – I used three – and add to card front. Mine is placed 3/4″ up from the bottom. Add bling with the Noble Peacock Rhinestones. Front is complete!

Inside the card:

  • Whisper White 4″ x 5 1/4″ Stamp the sentiments from the Ornate Thanks stamp set using Tuxedo Black Memento ink and Soft Seafoam ink. Use a leftover strip from the embossed piece from the envelope flap and adhere to the bottom. This strip is  1/4″ x 5 1/4″

The envelope:

  • Nary a “neked” envelope to be found – right? Right! Cut a piece of Soft Seafoam 2 1/4″ x 6″, spritz lightly with water and run through the Eyelet Lace embossing folder. Adhere to the envelope flap using liquid glue. Trim. The leftover scrap was cut down and used on the inside of the card 🙂
  • Stamp the sentiment from Ornate Thanks in Tuxedo Black Memento ink.

I love this card! It is just so sweet. I hope you like it too. Remember that this stamp and die set can be yours beginning Apr 1- May 1. It is part of the Early Release Ornate Garden Suite of products.  While the items will be be available in the Annual 2020-2021 catalogue, they most likely will not be as a suite of products – and therefore will be more expensive.

I would love to have you shop with me. When you purchase product $50- $149 from me, you receive a free item of choice up to $10. A deal right? Use my current HOST CODE XYW2SYNV.

May you have a beautiful day. Make someone happy by sending them a handmade card.

 

Stampin’ Up! Ornate Garden Suite Masculine Card

I used the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Thanks stamp set and Ornate Layers dies from the upcoming 2020-2021 Annual Catalogue to create my masculine thank you card today. It was quick and it was easy!

  • Starting with Old Olive 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ card stock, score @ 4 1/4″
  • Cut a piece of Pear Pizzazz 4 ” x 5 1/4″. I appreciate how these two greens work together.
  • Cut a piece Ornate Garden Specialty DSP with the largest die in the Stitched Rectangle dies. Using liquid glue, adhere this to the Pear Pizzazz.
  • Cut a piece of Gold Foil from the Ornate Layers dies. Put dimensionals on the back and attach to the Pear Pizzazz and Ornate Garden SDSP.
  • Cut a strip of Basic Black 1/2″ x 5″. Adhere using snail to the center of the Gold Foil.
  • Cut a piece of Pear Pizzazz about 1 1/2″ x 4 1/2″. Run your embossing buddy across this to remove all static. Stamp the front sentiment with Versamark ink and sprinkle with Black embossing powder and heat set. Once cooled, cut this out with another of the Ornate Layers dies. Color six Rhinestone Basic jewels with Black Stampin’ Up! blends and adhere as shone. Adhere dimensionals to the back of this piece and attach, centering it, over the black strip.
  • Almost done with the front… Add dimensionals to the large Pear Pizzazz and attach, centering, to the Old Olive card base. This card now has three layers on dimensionals and shows such depth and beauty. I love it!

The inside…

  • Cut a piece of Pear Pizzazz 4′ x 5 1/4″ and adhere to the card base with liquid glue.
  • Cut a piece of Whisper White 3 3/4″ x 5″. Stamp the sentiment from the Ornate Thanks stamp set using Tuxedo Black Memento ink. Adhere a strip of the Ornate Garden SDSP 1/2″ x 5″ toward the bottom as shown. Adhere the Whisper White to the Pear Pizzazz already attached to the inside of the card and voila!

The envelope flap… adhere a piece of the Ornate Garden SDSP, cut to fit. Your card is ready to share, send, give.
