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! Watercolor Wings for the Happy Stampers Hop

HappyStampersBlogPostBanner

 

 My share for  today is a Playful Palette Watercolor Wings card, with lots of help from some other favorites from Stampin’ Up!  

 

Playful Palette Watercolor Wings

 

 

We’re working with a color challenge with a couple of the new In Colors thrown into the mix:

 

June 16

 

As you can see, I am using the Swirly Scribbles Thinlets again!  They are so versatile, and I am so glad I purchased the bundle!

 

Playful Palette Watercolor Wings

 

I used Sweet Sugarplum and Blushing Bride on my butterfly from Watercolor Wings.  My swirly circles are die cut in those same colors of card stock.  I used my Botanical Builder Framelits to cut out Emerald Envy leaves and a Sweet Sugarplum flower and 2 Blushing Bride flowers.  I sponged the edges of my flowers with Sweet Sugarplum and Blushing Bride inks.  

 

Playful Palette Watercolor Wings

 

My Sweet Sugarplum banner is punched with the new Duet Banner punch and stamped with a sentiment from Thoughtful Banners, also a new stamp set.  

 

 

Stampin' Up! Watercolor Wings by Cardiology by Jari 010

 

For the inside of my Playful Palette Watercolor Wings card, I chose a sentiment from another favorite stamp set, Suite Sayings.  It is stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  The bottom has a strip of the Playful Palette DSP that is also on the front of the card.  Card stock cuts are at the end of my post.

Stampin’ Up! Love & Affection Hello

I am using the new Love &  Affection stamp set from Stampin’ Up! for my share today, along with Affectionately Yours Designer Series Paper.

 

Love & Affection

 

 

The sketch from Freshly Made Sketches #239 was the inspiration for my card layout,  and I used a little liberty with the “any shape”  designation.  

FMS Final 239-001

 

 

 

Love & Affection

 

For the art piece, I used the new Floral Affection TIEF to emboss a panel of Crumb Cake card stock. Then I used a Night of Navy marker to color the raised edges of the design.  I got the idea to color it from a card I saw on Pinterest. See it HERE.  Once colored, I used the Project Life Corner punch to round the edges, then attached it to a panel of Night of Navy with rounded corners.  Basic Pearl Jewels were added to the flower centers.

The sentiment is from Thoughtful Banners, stamped in Night of Navy, then die cut with the smallest die from the Banners Framelits. I framed it with another banner of the same size in Night of Navy.  It is cut in half and attached at either end of the Crumb Cake banner with glue.  I added a small flower from the Love & Affection set as well as a bow of Linen Thread.  

 

Love & Affection

 

 

For the inside, I stamped some of the flower images from Love & Affection in Night of Navy onto a panel of Crumb Cake and attached it to the Crumb Cake card base with glue.  I love how crisp and clean these flower images look when stamped!  Here is the card with it’s embellished Crumb Cake envelope:

 

 

Love & Affection

 

Love & Affection, as well as the Floral Affection TIEF, would be a wonderful addition to your stamp collection!  If you are like me, I have a long list of “have to have” stamp sets on my to order soon list 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Swirly Bird Missing You

Hi Stampers!  This has been a crazy week for me and I have not posted since last Saturday, but I’m caught up (is anyone ever caught up?) at least for the next few days!  HA-HA.  Anyway, you’re here to see a card, not hear about my busyness…….

My share for you today uses 3 new stamp sets, but the featured set is Swirly Bird.  What a fun new bunch of stamps and it bundles with the new Swirly Scribbles Thinlets Dies.  You can find them on pages 152 and 194 in the new Annual Catalog.

 

Stampin' Up! Swirly Bird

 

The inspiration for the sketch is from Stamp, Ink, Paper SIP#50.  Head over and check out all of the great cards featured there.

SIP-Sketch-Challenge-50-800-768x994

 

There are so many possibilities with the Swirly Bird stamp set.  The more I see it, the more I love these stamps!  The Whisper White panel is stamped with swirls in Mint Macaron, Island Indigo and Crumb Cake inks and framed with a little larger panel of Mint Macaron card stock.  One of the swirly scribbles was die cut from Crumb Cake cardstock and attached to the art piece with multipurpose liquid glue.  

 

Stampin' Up! Swirly Bird

 

The bird, in Island Indigo, was stamped onto a panel of Whisper White Thick card stock and fussy cut.  The eggs are in Mint Macaron and the nest in Soft Suede, also stamped onto the Thick paper and fussy cut.  They are attached with dimensionals.

My banner is from Thoughtful Banners, found on page 73, and can also be bundled with the new Duet Banner Punch found on page 186. It is stamped in Island Indigo onto Whisper White and framed with another banner punched in Island Indigo card stock.  

I added some rhinestones to the front to add a little bling.

 

Swirly Bird

 

I stamped a few more swirls on the inside Whisper White panel and stamped a sentiment from the other new stamp set,  Love and Affection.  It is found on page 45.  

There are so many wonderful new stamp sets in the 2016-2017 Annual Catalog!  I hope you have enjoyed my take on the new Swirly Birds, Thoughtful Banners and Love and Affection stamp sets!  Stay tuned for more samples of these great stamps and bundles!  

 

If for some reason you have not received the new catalog and would like one, please contact me.
