Stampin’ Up! Heartfelt Sympathy for Happy Inkin’ Thursday

Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

Welcome once again to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop.  I’m using the Heartfelt Sympathy stamp set from Stampin’ Up! to create the card I’m sharing today.  I decided to use this as an encouragement card rather than a sympathy card by featuring just one of the sentiments.  Take a look….

And, here is our sketch:
Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

I stepped out of my comfort zone a little with this card today!  I wasn’t sure about the new In-Color, Fresh Fig, but decided to try it paired with Old Olive, and I really do like it.  Hope you like it, too! 

First, I stamped the sentiment from Heartfelt Sympathy in Versa Mark ink onto a panel of Whisper White card stock. Then, I sprinkled it with Copper Emboss Powder and heat embossed it.  Once cooled, I used my Blender Pen with a small amount of Old Olive ink and colored over and around the leaf images.

Next, I stamped four small flowers from Birthday Blooms in Fresh Fig ink, fussy cut them with my Paper Snips, and colored in the centers with my Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Write Marker.  My sentiment panel was die cut with the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies and then matted with a little larger scalloped oval in Copper Foil card stock.

I layered a panel of the new Color Theory Designer Series Paper (available June 1st) onto a panel of Old Olive, then adhered them to my Fresh Fig card stock base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

A little creative license was then taken with the sketch, as I decided to use the curvy Swirly Scribbles Thinlets die behind my sentiment panel.  I die cut a piece of Fresh Fig card stock and trimmed it to fit the front of the card.  It was adhered with little dabs of Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Finally, the flowers were adhered and the sentiment panel was popped on with dimensionals.

My inside sentiment was chosen from You’ve Got This, and was also heat embossed with Copper Emboss Powder. The leaves were another image from Heartfelt Sympathy, and I used the same technique with my Blender Pen.  The fourth flower I stamped earlier was then adhered with some liquid glue.  For the bottom of my sentiment panel, I added a left over strip of the Color Theory DSP used on the front of my card.  

A complete list of Stampin’ Up! supplies and card stock cuts for creating my card will be at the end of the post.

Hey, Chick for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Occasions & Sale-A-Bration Blog Hop

Amy's Inkin' Krew Hey Chick

 

This month, Amy’s Inkin’ Krew is bringing you projects from the new Occasions and Sale-A-Bration catalogs.  Don’t you just love all of the new products?  I hope you’ll make sure and hop around to see what is new!  I’m sharing Hey, Chick, one of the FREE stamp sets you can earn during Sale-A-Bration.  

 

Chick

I started out using a scrap piece of paper to stamp all sorts of possibilities for these three images, and the umbrella from the Weather Together stamp set.  Once I decided on how I wanted it to look, I stamped each of the Hey, Chick images in Basic Gray onto a panel of Shimmery White Card Stock.  Then, I stamped the raindrops, also from Weather Together, in Basic Gray ink.  I wanted the umbrella to appear to be under the rooster’s wing, so, I made a mask of his wing with a post-it note.  Once I cut out the wing part, I adhered it over his real wing and then stamped the handle of the umbrella.  

Chick

 

Next, I stamped the canopy of the umbrella in Basic Gray right above the handle onto my Shimmery White card stock. I also stamped the canopy onto a panel of Watermelon Wonder polka dot paper from the 2015-2017 In Color Paper Stacks and used the coordinating die to cut it out. This is called Paper Piecing.  Adds some interest, doesn’t it?  

My next step was to begin the coloring process on the rooster, the egg and the hen.  So, I pulled out my new Watercolor Pencils (SO FUN), and began to lightly blend each image.   I used Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight, Early Expresso and Basic Gray.  

 

Chick

 

The sentiment, also from Hey Chick, was stamped with Versa Mark ink onto a panel of Basic Gray, sprinkled with White Emboss Powder and heat embossed.  I then cut it out with the small oval from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.  

My card base is Watermelon Wonder. The next layer, from Carried Away DSP (also free during Sale-A-Bration), was adhered with glue.  The art panel was framed with Basic Gray card stock and then popped onto the front with dimensionals.  

 

Hey Chick

 

So, for the inside, I could not leave out this crazy image!  I am told by a team member that he is a Silkie breed rooster.  I looked it up on a website she suggested and found this picture of one called a Top Hat Special.  Crazy fun!!

 

A complete list of supplies and card stock cuts will be at the end of my post.

Stampin’ Up! Beautiful You Encouragement Card

My share today is from Beautiful You, one of the new stamp sets found in the 2017 Stampin’ Up! Occasions Catalog.  I really think this set is appropriately named.  It is beautiful!  You can find this stamp set on page 24.  It lends itself to the new Watercolor Pencils, the Blender Pens, Aqua Painters, or you might just want to try your hand at paper piecing!  

 

Beautiful

 

The design for my card was inspired by Freshly Made Sketches 269.

FMS#269 Beautiful

And the color inspiration from Sunday Stamps SSC#143

SSC143 Beautiful

I hope you’ll check out both of these challenge blogs and all of the beautiful creations there!  You may even decide to play along!

I started by layering a panel of Falling in Love Designer Series Paper, new for the 2017 Occasions Catalog, onto a panel of Tip Top Taupe.  Then, I secured a length of Very Vanilla Lace Trim and Very Vanilla 1/4″ Satin Ribbon to the front with a little Tear and Tape adhesive.  I also used some clear tape to hold it in place on the back.  I made sure the front adhesive was going to be covered by the art panel.  

Beautiful

 

I chose some Shimmery White card stock for my art panel and stamped the image and sentiment from Beautiful You in Tip Top Taupe ink. Then, I pulled out my blender pen and began to color in the dress and umbrella using my Pink Pirouette and Sweet Sugarplum ink pads.  I pushed on the tops while closed, then opened the ink pad and dipped my blender pen into the puddle of ink there.  I used some Soft Sky ink on the wet ground.  The art panel was layered onto a Pink Pirouette panel, then to a Tip Top Taupe panel.  One heart shaped Enamel Shapes Embellishment was added for extra interest.

Beautiful

 

To keep with the encouragement theme, I chose the inside sentiment from the You’ve Got This stamp set.  First I stamped the squiggle image onto a scrap piece of paper and stamped in the center of the Shimmery White card stock.  Then, I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to position my sentiment where I wanted it and to be able to stamp it twice to make the color stand out.  

Beautiful You is such a fun stamp set because it is really unique to most of the stamps Stampin’ Up! currently offers. Have you decided to add it to your wish list, or have you already ordered it?  

A complete list of supplies and card stock cuts are at the end of my post.

I mentioned above the benefits of joining Stampin’ Up! during Sale-a-Bration, but I am going to repeat, this is the best time of the year to join.  I joined during Sale-a-Bration two years ago and was able to enjoy the extra benefits.  I joined because the first time I stamped my first card, I was hooked!  I loved the products and excitement of trying new techniquies and finding all of the awesome cards and projects on Pinterest and Splitcoast Stampers.

As a demonstrator you get at least a 20% discount, early access to new catalog products, get to attend OnStage events, make wonderful new friends, and the list goes on and on!  I first joined as a hobby stamper, then decided to try my wings at blogging!  I guess another great advantage I forgot to mention is there are no strings attached, if it’s not right for you, you can drop at any with no penalty and you get to keep all of the items in your starter kit.

Stampin’ Up! Designer Tee Sneak Peek

I have another sneak peek for you today from the 2017 Sale-a-Bration Flyer!!  I am sharing one of the images from the Designer Tee stamp set. This stamp set is FREE with any $50 order beginning on January 4, 2017.  

 

Designer Tee

 

I started with a Whisper White note card and adhered a panel from the Carried Away Designer Series Paper.  This DSP is also available for FREE during Sale-a-Bration.  Next, I punched either end of my Tasty Treats Specialty DSP (the Pear Pizzaz piece) with my Banner Triple Punch.  I adhered it to the front with liquid glue.  The sentiment is from the Designer Tee stamp set and was stamped with Watermelon Wonder and Basic Black Archival Inks.  I used one of my Stitched Shapes Framelits to cut it out. Then, I looped some Linen Thread, adhering it to the back with dimensionals. 

 

Designer Tee

I just love the little train!  First, I stamped the sentiment in Watermelon Wonder with the help of my Stamp-a-ma-jig. Then, I inked up the train only using my Basic Black Archival ink and stamped it in front of the sentiment.  

 

Designer Tee

 

Finally, for the finishing touches, I added some Pear Pizzaz Enamel Shapes to the front of the card.   The Designer Tee stamp set coordinates with Custom Tee stamp set and the T-shirt Builder Framelits Dies in the upcoming 2017 Occasions catalog. Fun!! 

Here is a peek at the whole stamp set:

Seaside Shore for the Happy Stampers Blog Hop

Happy Stampers Blog Hop

 

It’s Thursday, and we’re back for the Happy Stampers Blog Hop!  Welcome to another color challenge. I’m sharing Seaside Shore from Stampin’ Up! this week.   Here are the colors we’re all using, aren’t they lovely together?

 

Happy Stampers Color Challenge

Here is my Seaside Shore card:

Seaside Shore

I pulled out my By the Shore Designer Series Paper and found all of the colors for our challenge this week, so I got busy deciding just which of the papers to use!  I love all of them in this grouping, so it took a while.  I also pulled out the Seaside Textured Impressions Embossing Folder(TIEF for short) and did some dry embossing on the two patterned pieces.  

 

Seaside Shore

My anchor and sentiment banner from Seaside Shore, were stamped in Dapper Denim onto Very Vanilla card stock and both fussy cut with Paper Snips  The fish is also from Seaside Shore and stamped in Calypso Coral on Very Vanilla and fussy cut.  Behind the banner I added some 5/8″ Mini Striped Mint Macaron ribbon, and also used the Calypso Coral Thick Baker’s Twine for the anchor line.
Seaside Shore

 

 

For the inside, I chose the other sentiment from Seaside Shore and then stamped a few of the starfish in Mint Macaron and Calypso Coral inks. 

A list of the products used in making my card today will be at the end of my post.

Stampin’ Up! Weather Together

My share for today is from Weather Together, one of the new Stampin’ Up! stamp sets/bundles.  I am loving all of the new bundles, not only because there is a 10% discount when you bundle, but because of all of the awesome thinlets, framelets and punches that help make your card extra special and, easy to put together!

 

Weather Together

 

First, I added a strip of Sof Sky Subtles DSP to the top of a Whisper White panel with glue, then I stamped the raindrop images from Weather Together in Soft Sky onto the Whisper White.  I framed this panel with a panel of Calypso Coral using liquid glue to attach them.

 

 

Weather Together

 

Next, I stamped the umbrella top in Calypso Coral and the handle in Early Expresso ink onto a panel of Whisper White thick card stock and die cut them using the Umbrella Weather Framelits.  I used a little glue to adhere the handle to the back of the umbrella top, then attached the whole piece to the front of the card with dimensionals.

I stamped some clouds in Soft Sky and used the matching Framelits die to cut them out.  They are added to the front with dimensionals.

 

Weather Together

 

The sentiment is also found in the Weather Together set and is stamped in Early Expresso onto a panel of Soft Sky, then die cut with the banner from the Large Numbers Framelits die set.  To finish off the front, I added a small bow using the Calypso Coral baker’s twine and the silver heart from my Metallic Enamel Shapes.  

 

Weather Together

 

For the inside, I added more of the Soft Sky DSP to the top and bottom of the Whisper White panel, then stamped another umbrella  in Calypso Coral and Early Expresso inks. ( I used a different image from the set for the handle). The sentiment is  also stamped in Early Expresso.

 

Don’t you love Weather Together?  Lots of fun images and sentiments plus die cuts!!  Check it out on page 55 of the Annual catalog.

Stampin’ Up! Watercolor Words and Rose Wonder

Today’s card uses Stampin’ Up! Watercolor Words and Rose Wonder stamps as well as my Botanical Builder Framelits Dies to deliver an inspirational card for someone special.  

 

Watercolor Words & Rose Wonder

 

The beauty of the Botanical Builder Dies is that you can do flower colors and leaf shapes for any season!  I chose some spring colors with the Botanical Gardens DSP (retiring), Mint Macaron and  Daffodil Delight.  
Watercolor Words & Rose Wonder

 

I started by cutting a panel of Whisper White and the floral DSP the same size (3 7/8 x 5 1/8), then used the long leaf die to die cut the Whisper White panel.  Next, I stamped the sentiment from Watercolor Words in Basic Black ink onto the bottom of the white panel.  Then, I adhered the two panels together with liquid glue.  I really like using this glue when you need to position something to very carefully line it up!

Then, I pulled out the flower dies and cut them out using Mint Macaron,  Daffodil Delight and Basic Black card stocks. 

 

Watercolor Words & Rose Wonder

 

I framed the art panel with a little larger panel of Mint Macaron, using liquid glue, then popped it onto the Daffodil Delight card base with dimensionals.  

For the inside of the card, I stamped one of the sentiments from the Rose Wonder stamp set in Basic Black ink and added a few stamped flowers to match the DSP.  The flowers were from the Sale-a-Bration Botanicals for You stamp set.

Watercolor Words & Rose Wonder

 

 

Watercolor Words and Rose Wonder stamps will not be retiring this year, so you have another year to use these great stamp sets!  The Envelope Liners Framelits are retiring, so snatch them up soon!

Stampin’ Up! Friendly Wishes

Happy Friday!  So glad you stopped by.  My share for you today is from the Friendly Wishes stamp set.

Friendly WishesThe inspiration for the card layout is from Fab Friday #85.  Make sure you head over there and check out all of the other cards and play along, too!

Fab Friday Logos-085

I started by layering a panel of Birthday Bouquet DSP onto my Mossy Meadow card base with MP liquid glue.  Then, I punched 2 banners in coordinating Birthday Bouquet DSP with my Banner Triple punch.

Friendly Wishes

Before adding the banners to the front, I cut a piece of Tea Lace Doily and glued it just below where I wanted to place the banners. The sentiment, from Friendly Wishes, was stamped in Blushing Bride onto Whisper White and cut out with the second to the smallest label from Deco Labels Collection Framelits.  I stamped that same sentiment in Mossy Meadow and fussy cut the word YOU and glued it over the Blushing Bride YOU. Both labels are popped up with dimensionals to give the card some depth. I punched a heart with the Itty Bitty Accents Heart punch and added an Iced Rhinestone for some bling!

 

Friendly Wishes

 

If you look closely, you will notice I used another stamp from Friendly Wishes to decorate the inside.  The heart image goes all along the bottom of the Whisper White panel and is stamped in Blushing Bride.  And the finished product with the envelope:

Friendly Wishes

Stampin’ Up! Pedal Pusher Encouragement Card

My share for today is from the Stampin’ Up! Pedal Pusher stamp set from the Sale-a Bration catalog.  Love, love, love  this stamp set!  

Pedal Pusher from Stampin' Up!

This stamp set, even if not free, would be one of my favorites.  If you haven’t ordered yours yet, remember the last day of Sale-a-Bration is March 31st.  Don’t wait till the last minute…..

I started by stamping the “ground”  with a stamp from the Sheltering Tree stamp set in Tip Top Taupe.  I stamped it off once before stamping it onto a panel of Very Vanilla card stock.  Next, the bicycle from Pedal Pusher was stamped in Basic Black archival ink and then colored in with Stampin’ Write markers.  The basket, flowers, and flag were also stamped first in Basic Black, then colored in with markers, too.

Then, I cut a panel of Sweet Li’l Things DSP (clouds) and attached it to the art piece with MP liquid glue.  This was then glued to a panel of Pool Party card stock and a length of Pool Party 1/4″ ribbon was attached with Tear and Tape adhesive, then the bow attached with a glue dot.  I added dimensionals and then popped it onto the So Saffron card base.

For the inside, I repeated part of the bicycle image from Pedal Pusher and added a cloud from the Sprinkles of Life stamp set.

Stampin’ Up! Remarkable You for the Happy Stampers Blog Hop

Happy Stampers March 10th Blog Hop

My share for today’s Happy Stampers Blog Hop goes out to a very special person.  I decided to use the Remarkable You stamp set because she is truly Remarkable!  Sandi, the original Happy Stamper, is having surgery today and we all want her to know how special she is and that we miss her.  She has been absent from the hop for a few weeks and we patiently await her return and wish her a speedy recovery.

Here is our color challenge:

Remarkable You is the perfect stamp set for trying out water coloring!  

Stampin' Up! Remarkable You for the Happy Stampers Blog Hop by Cardiology by Jari

We have had such beautiful weather in Georgia the last few days, that I wanted to try photographing my card outside.  I love the outdoor effect with the calla lilies.  As a little girl growing up in Florida, I remember these beautiful flowers growing wild out in the pastures and how much I loved them!

Remarkable You stamp set from Stampin' Up!

The Old Olive card base is stamped first with the leaf stamp from Remarkable You with Old Olive ink.   I used the stamping off technique. This is where you stamp first on a scrap of paper and then stamp onto your card without re-inking. It gives a softer effect. The calla lilies and the sentiment were stamped onto a panel of Water color paper with Versa Mark ink, then heat embossed with Black embossing powder.  I then used my Aqua Painter to “paint” the center of the flower with Hello Honey ink and a little Tangelo Twist for the stamen. The stems were done in Old Olive ink.  The water colored panel was then adhered to a panel of Basic Black with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  A strand of Old Olive Baker’s twine was then wrapped around the art panel 3 times and finished with a bow.  This panel was then popped onto the Old Olive base with dimensionals.

For the inside of the card, I chose a sentiment and butterfly from the Best Thoughts stamp set.

The sentiment and butterfly were stamped with Basic Black Archival ink, then the butterfly colored in with my Hello Honey Stampin’ Write Marker.
