Stampin’ Up! Sunshine Wishes Valentine for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew

Amy's Inkin' Krew Share the Love Blog Hop

 

Happy Valentine’s Day and welcome to our Share the Love Blog Hop, compliments of Amy’s Inkin’ Krew!  I made a Sunshine Wishes Valentine to share today, with some help from Thoughtful Banners and the Love Notes Framelits Dies.  
Sunshine Wishes Valentine

I used the Falling Petals Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and dry embossed a panel of Whisper White, and set it aside.  Then, I made a banner with my Banner Triple Punch and some Pop of Pink DSP.  Next, I cut out some hearts with more of the Pop of Pink, Melon Mambo and Basic Black.  I pulled out the Love from Sunshine Wishes and die cut it in Melon Mambo three times.  The arrow is from the Love Notes Framelits Dies.

 

Sunshine Wishes Valentine

 

 

Before stamping the You sentiment, I arranged all of the hearts and the banner on top of the Whisper White embossed panel to make sure of placement.  Then, it was stamped in Basic Black Archival ink.  The banner was adhered first, then, I adhered Love onto the largest heart with liquid glue.  All of the larger hearts were popped onto the front with dimensionals, and the smaller ones glued on.  

 

Sunshine Wishes Valentine

 

For the inside of my card, I added a strip of the dotted Pop of Pink DSP to the bottom of a Whisper White panel, then also added some left over small hearts.  Finally, I adhered the inside panel to the Whisper White card base with liquid glue.  There you have it, my Sunshine Wishes Valentine!  When you put different stamp sets and framelits together, you can come up with some amazingly different types of cards! 

A complete list of Stampin’ Up! products used to create this Sunshine Wishes Valentine as well as card stock cuts will be at the end of my post.

Stampin’ Up! Valentine Sweet Treat Box

I made Valentine Sweet Treat Boxes from the Stampin’ Up! Popcorn Box Thinlets Dies for my share today.  

Valentine Treat

 

These Popcorn Boxes are so versatile, and they come together quickly.  I used them at Christmas time for little candy treat boxes and really, they can be decorated for any special holiday treats. 

 

Valentine Treat

I started by creating the Popcorn Boxes with the Popcorn Box Thinlets Dies and the Brights Designer Series Paper Stacks Real Red paper.  For the box on the left, I die cut the large heart from the Sunshine Wishes Thinlets Dies and a panel of Sending Love DSP.  I used Gold Foil, Dazzling Diamonds, and Real Red card stock to die cut the medium sized hearts from the Love Notes Framelits Dies.  Next I stamped From Me to You, one of the sentiments from Ready to Pop,  in Versa Mark ink and sprinkled it with Gold Emboss Powder and heat embossed it.  

For the Valentine Sweet Treat box on the right, I used another sentiment from Ready to Pop, and embossed it in Gold also. The Gold Foil arrow was die cut with the Love Notes Framelits.  The Whisper White sentiment heart and the Real Red Heart were also die cut with the Love Notes Framelits and the banner is a panel of the Sending Love DSP cut with the Banner Triple Punch.  

Valentine Sweet

I know I have used quite a few different products today, but I hope I have shown you that if you look carefully at your stamp sets and framelits, you may find many ways to use them!   Now, do I give away these chocolate covered truffle hearts inside the carefully packaged Valentine Sweet Treat boxes (with 6 x 8 Celophane bags), or do I just unwrap them and save them for myself?!!

A complete list of products used for these boxes will be at the end of my post.

Stampin’ Up! Sealed With Love Valentine Gift Bags

I used several different stamp sets from Stampin’ Up! to create my Valentine Gift Bags for today.  These bags were actually used at my Open House for my guests to take their goodies home in, you may remember this picture from my post. 

I forgot to show you the close ups and more information on how to make them in case you’d like to make some of your own Valentine Gift Bags

 

Valentine Gift Bags

 

For these two bags, I used the Sealed With Love Bundle, using Real Red and Soft Sky card stock for my heart cut outs and some Sending Love Designer Series Paper for the scalloped die cut.  I fussy cut out a heart on the bag on the right, from one of the Sending Love DSP pages.  I also added a pretty Lace Doily to the bag on the left.  Both bags are stamped with Real Red ink. 

 

Valentine Gift Bags

 

For these two bags, I pulled out my Bloomin’ Heart Thinlets and my Sunshine Wishes Thinlets and some Gold Glimmer Paper.  I used the sentiment and lips stamp from Sealed With Love and stamped them in Real Red.  For the bag on the left, I die cut the open heart from Love Notes Framelits and threaded the arrow, also from the Love Note Framelite, through it.  The large Gold Glimmer heart was die cut with one of the heart dies from the Sweet & Sassy Framelits and the small hearts were from one of the Mini Treat Bag Thinlets Dies.  

 

Valentine Treat Bag

 

 

For this bag, I die cut another Bloomin’ Heart in Real Red and added some Rhinestones to the flower centers.  Then, I made a little envelope with a Sending Love Glassine Sheet and the Love Notes Framelits Die.  The small note on the inside was stamped on Whisper White and then die cut.  The small heart on the envelope flap was stamped with a stamp from Sealed With Love and also die cut.  

I hope you enjoyed my Valentine Treat Bags today!  I know I used a lot of different products, but you can see that there are many stamps and die sets that will work for this type of bag!  I purchased the handled bags at Hobby Lobby.

Stampin’ Up! Sunshine Wishes Valentine for Happy Inkin’ Thursday

Happy Inkin' Thursday

Happy Inkin’ Thursday, we are back with a new name, but, with the same players!  Today, I am sharing a card using the Sunshine Wishes Thinlets Dies, some help from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlets, the Sweet & Sassy Framelits and the Sealed With Love Bundle.  

Our color challenge this week is Real Red, Whisper White and Gold… 

 

Sunshine Wishes for Happy Inkin' thursday

….so, I made a Valentine:

 

Sunshine Wishes

My card front has no stamping, but with the help of the Sunshine Wishes Thinlets, I die cut the love sentiment in Gold Glimmer Paper. In fact, I cut out two just to give it a little more pop.  This paper is really thick, so you need to run it through the big shot several times for the die to cut it all out.  I die cut the heart from the Love Notes Framelits Dies in Real Red. I cut some of the letter “o” off before attaching the heart to the rest of the word with liquid glue. 

 

Sunshine Wishes

 

The large Whisper White heart was die cut with the Sweet & Sassy Framelits Dies and placed in the Happy Heart TIEF, then dry embossed.  Next, I die cut the arrow and “open” heart using my Love Notes Framelits Dies and more Gold Glimmer Paper.  I pulled out the die from my Mini Treat Bag Thinlets that creates a line of hearts for the banner.  Again, I had to run it through the Big Shot several times because that Glimmer Paper is so thick.  The small hearts were popped out so that I could use them on the front.  One end of the banner was notched using my Banner Triple Punch.

 

Sunshine Wishes

I pulled out a piece of my Pop of Pink DSP for the other banner and also used the Banner Triple Punch to notch one end.  To add just a little more interest, I cut a length of Gold Metallic Thread and wound it around, attaching it with dimensionals before popping the large heart on the front, also with dimensionals.  

 

sunshine Wishes

For my inside sentiment, I went back to my Sealed With Love stamp set, stamping two of the images in Real Red.   

A complete list of supplies for my Sunshine Wishes Valentine and card stock cuts in inches are at the end of my post.  


Now, on to the rest of the hop.  Kristi is next in line, so make sure to check out her creation for today!

Join my team during Sale-A-Bration!  This is the best time of the year to join Stampin’ Up!  Look at the benefits:

Joining Stampin’ Up! is one of the best things I have ever done.  I love the products and Demonstrator Support is excellent.  When I joined two years ago during Sale-A-Bration, I loved the fact that I got extra stamp sets and got $125 dollars worth of product for $99, and there was free shipping.  That is always a draw for me-I love free shipping!  Also, there was no pressure to sell anything, plus I got a discount on all of my purchases.  Yippee!! I have a super up-line, Amy Koenders, who has encouraged me since day one!  

I would love to add you to my team and you would then become part of our larger team, Amy’s Inkin’ Krew.  I would be happy to answer any questions you might have and you can learn more about joining HERE.

Love & Congrats for the Happy Stampers Blog Hop

Happy Stampers Blog Hop

 

Welcome to another Thursday and the Happy Stampers Blog Hop.  We’re here to share some of our ideas with you to get your creative juices flowing!  Today, I’m sharing a wedding card full of Love & Congrats, compliments of the Sunshine Sayings stamp set and Sunshine Wishes Thinlets Dies from Stampin’ Up!  (Bundle and save 10%-Yes!)

Here are the colors we had to work with.  Pretty, right?  Why not see what you can create with these….

 

Happy Stampers Blog Hop

 

Here is what I came up with:

 

Love & Congrats

 

First, I stamped some “grunge” from the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set onto a panel of Mint Macaron.  I inked up the stamp with Mint Macaron and stamped it off onto a piece of scrap paper before actually stamping it onto my card. Then, I adhered that panel onto a panel of Rich Razzleberry with liquid glue.  

 

Love & Congrats

 

My next task was to create the sentiment, so I die cut three Rich Razzleberry Congrats, using the die from the Sunshine Wishes Thinlets.  I like to die cut several so that the letters pack a little more punch on the card.  They were adhered with my Fine Tip Glue Pen (just small dots).  The hearts were also die cut with Sunshine Wishes Thinlets.  I cut four of them and created 2 hearts for the front, adhering again with the Fine Tip Glue Pen.  Once I decided where all of the die cuts would go, I adhered them to the front of the double layered panel.  Notice that the heart on the right is not glued totally down, it is only attached where the two hearts touch at the bottom.  

 

Love & Congrats

 

The flower images were created with the Jar of Love Bundle, and I used Rich Razzleberry, Mint Macaron and Delightful Dijon inks on a panel of Whisper White, then die cut them.  Also included in the Everyday Jars Framelits is a die that created those small white hearts I used as accents.  Some of the flowers are adhered directly to the front, while a few are popped on with dimensionals.  A length of Rich Razzleberry ribbon was adhered with Tear & Tape, and then the panel was popped onto the Whisper White Thick Cardstock base with dimensionals.

 

Now for the Love portion to my Love & Congrats card:

 

Love & Congrats

 

I searched and searched my stamps and finally found Wishing you on a stamp in the Suite Sayings set that was really meant as an Easter sentiment!  I just taped off the part I did not want to stamp, used my Stampin’ Write marker on the words I wanted, and stamped!  A Lifetime Of is from Sunshine Sayings, and the love part of Love & Congrats is another die from the Sunshine Wishes Thinlets.

Last Blast of Summer for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew

Amy's Inkin' Krew

 

 

Welcome to our Last Blast of Summer Blog Hop from Amy’s Inkin’ Krew!  If you live in the south, you know we have a while to go until summer is officially over, but if you have children in school already, then SUMMER IS OVER!!  I love the beach, so I had fun making this card and dreaming of my last blast of summer coming up soon….

 

 

Last Blast of Summer

 

I started by stamping the beach umbrella from Weather Together in Bay and Daffodil Delight onto a panel of Whisper White Thick card stock, then die cut them with the coordinating Umbrella Weather Framelits.  I also die cut the trim for the umbrella from that same set in Daffodil Delight and adhered it with liquid glue.  Next, I die cut Sunshine from the Sunshine Wishes Thinlets three times in Gold Foil and carefully glued them together with liquid glue. I die cut two of the Swirly shapes for my sun image from Swirly Scribbles

 

Last Blast of Summer

 

 

I just love the Serene Scenery DSP, especially the one I chose for the background for this Last Blast of Summer card!  I used the ground image from Sheltering Tree to stamp a little more sand in Crumb Cake ink for the umbrella to rest in.  So that it was not too dark, I stamped off once on scrap paper, then onto the DSP.   The Shell and Starfish images from Seaside Shore, are also stamped in Crumb Cake, but full strength and then fussy cut with my Paper Snips.

 

Last Blast of Summer

 

My swirly sun, the starfish, and Sunshine were adhered with liquid glue, the umbrella and shell with dimensionals. this panel is framed with a panel of Bermuda Bay, then popped onto the Crumb Cake card base with dimensionals.  

 

Last Blast of Summer

 

 

The sentiment for the inside of the card is from Sunshine Sayings and is stamped in Bermuda Bay.  For the bottom of the card, I created a little more beach sand with more Crumb Cake ink using the same ground image as from the front, and added more starfish and a shell.  The Very Vanilla panel is framed in Bermuda Bay.  

So, what will you do for your Last Blast of Summer?   I am headed to the beach in a few days, YEA!!

 

Card stock cuts in inches and Stampin’ Up! Products used will be at the end of my post.

Sharing Kindness for the Happy Stampers Blog Hop

HappyStampersBlogPostBanner

 

We’re here with another sketch challenge, so glad you are joining the hop!  My share today uses several Stampin’ Up! products and all of them combine to make the whole, so I could not give it a title with a stamp set name.  That is why I chose Sharing Kindness.  You’ll see what  I mean shortly!

Here is our sketch:

 

Happy Stampers Sketch 8/4/16

 

Sharing Kindness

 

Last week when Sandi shared her butterfly (see it here) made from the flower die from Sunshine Wishes, it made me think I could also use it for a larger flower head, and that’s just what I did!  I actually die cut 3 of the flower images and cut off the stems and played around until I had the shape I wanted.  

 

Sharing Kindness

 

I glued the three Daffodil Deight pieces together in the middle with liquid glue, then I used dies from the Botanical Builders Die set for the flower centers in Night of Navy and Watermelon Wonder.  I curled them a little so that they would have some dimension and then popped them onto the center with dimensionals.  

 

Sharing Kindness

 

I pulled out the flower image from Flower Shop that most resembled the larger flower and stamped 2 onto some Watermelon Wonder card stock, then punched them out with the Pansy Punch.  I also curled them a little and added a Daffodil Delight Enamel Shape to the centers.   The banner sentiment is from Thoughtful Branches (only available this month!).  I stamped it in Versa Mark ink and dusted it with Copper Embossing Powder, then heat embossed it.  I used the Banner Triple Punch to cut the one end of the Crumb Cake panel.
The layers are Affectionately Yours and Cucumber Crush and are popped onto the Night Of Navy base with dimensionals.

 

Sharing Kindness

I left the inside plain for plenty of room for writing, just added some of the Affectionately Yours DSP to the bottom of the Crumb Cake panel.

 

Stampin' Up! Sharing Kindness by Cardiology by Jari 016

 

The final touch was to decorate the envelope with some more of the Affectionately Yours DSP.

Card stock cuts and products used will be at the end of my post.

 

Now, time to hop on over to Kristi Gray’s blog to see what she has created for our sketch challenge today!
