Stampin’ Up! Jar of Flowers for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Morning! Welcome to another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! I decided to use the Stampin’ Up! Jar of Flowers stamp set and the new Flowers for Every Season designer series paper to make today’s card. My layout was inspired by a similar card by one of my teammates Leslie Larkin, but her card is a unique fun fold card, so be sure to check it out here after you finish the hop.

We have a color challenge this week, and here is the color palette we are using:

Isn’t it great to use the new 2020-2022 In Colors? I used them all starting with a Magenta Madness card base. I cut a panel of the pretty Flowers for Every Season designer series paper with a Stitched Rectangle Die and adhered it to a Misty Moonlight panel cut out with the next largest die. I popped the layered panels on the card base with dimensionals.

I used the largest scalloped rectangle from the Stitched So Sweetly dies to cut out a Whisper White Panel. I stamped the flowers from the Stampin’ Up! Jar of Flowers photopolymer stamp set at the top of the panel in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I covered them with a mask and stamped the jar below. I stamped the water using the back of the half jar stamp in Pool Party ink stamped off once. Then I stamped the stems in the jar and colored the arrangement with Magenta Madness, Mango Melody, Misty Moonlight, Just Jade, Cinnamon Cider, Soft Sea Foam, Poppy Parade and the Color Lifter Stampin’ Blends. I stamped the flowers on another Whisper White Panel and colored them with Mango Melody, Magenta Madness, Misty Moonlight and the Color Lifter Stampin’ Blends. I fussy cut the flowers with my paper snips and popped it on top of the arrangement.

I wrapped some Misty Moonlight, silver and Whisper White Twine around the scalloped panel and made a bow. I used the Welcome die from the Well Written dies to cut out the welcome word 3 times using Misty Moonlight card stock. I adhered them together with the Fine-Tip Glue pen and adhered it to the scalloped panel. I popped the floral panel on the card front with dimensionals.

I stamped the flowers again in the middle of a Whisper White panel using Misty Moonlight ink after stamping off 4 times. I trimmed the bottom of the panel with a strip of the Flowers for Every Season DSP and adhered it to the inside of the card with Stampin’ Seal.

The Flowers for Every Season DSP is so pretty and colorful – it makes it easy to create beautiful cards.

Stampin’ Up! So Sentimental with Many Medallions Thank You

Good Morning! Today I have fun Thank You card made with the Stampin’ So Sentimental bundle along with the Many Medallions dies. The Stampin’ Up! So Sentimental stamp set is bundled with the Stitched So Sweetly dies and was introduced in the January Mini Catalog. But Yay for us!! -because the set is still bundled in the new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog with the 10% discount! You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I cut the large medallion die from the Many Medallions dies using Pool Party card stock and adhered it to the front of a Bermuda Bay card base with multipurpose liquid glue.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! So Sentimental cling stamp set in Bermuda Bay ink on a Pool Party Panel and cut it out with the Stitched So Sweetly die. I cut the larger die from the Stitched So Sweetly dies using Bermuda Bay card stock and adhered the Pool Party Label to it. I popped it on the card front with dimensionals.

I made a bow with the Polka Dot Tulle ribbon and adhered it with a glue dot. I finished the card front off with three Pool Party Rhinestones.

I cut another medallion strip from Pool Party card stock using the Many Medallions dies. I adhered it to the bottom of a Whisper White panel and then to the inside of the card with multipurpose liquid glue.

This was a quick and simple thank you card but it looks really fancy! Its because the Many Medallions dies steps up the design – and it goes really well with the angles and curves in the Stitched So Sweetly label.

Stampin’ Up! Tasteful Touches Hello Card

Good Morning! Today I made a sweet Hello card with the new Stampin’ Up! Tasteful Touches bundle. This cling stamp set has an eclectic set of images that are great for creating both masculine and feminine cards. It has some great texture stamps and wonderful sentiments in an easy flowing font that really let you express your creativity. And every label die in the Tasteful Labels dies has a special stitched or embossed edge that makes it extra special and a definite must have. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I started by stamping the leaf branch from the Stampin’ Up! Tasteful Touches stamp set in Misty Moonlight ink on a panel of In Good Taste designer series paper. I adhered the panel to a Misty Moonlight mat and then popped it on the front of a Gray Granite Card Base with dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment in Misty Moonlight on a panel of Petal Pink card stock and cut it out with the Tasteful Labels dies. I stamped the flower from the Stampin’ Up! Tasteful Touches in Misty Moonlight ink on Whisper White and fussy cut it out. I colored it with Petal Pink and Mango Melody Stampin Blends. I cut a fern branch from vellum using the Forever Flourishing dies.

I adhered the vellum fern and label to the card front with Stampin’ Seal. I applied more Stampin’ Seal and wound some Misty Moonlight and silver twine a couple of times on the left side of the label and popped the flower on top with dimensionals. I finished the front off with three champagne rhinestones.

I stamped the branches from the Stampin’ Up! Tasteful Touches stamp set in Misty Moonlight ink on a Whisper White panel. I adhered a strip of the In Good Taste DSP to the bottom and adhered it to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Tasteful Touches bundle is part of the new In Good Taste suite along with the In Good Taste DSP. The products in this suite are full of neutral colors and natural textures and make very elegant cards!

Stampin’ Up! Birds and Branches Smile Car Video Tutorial

Good Morning! Today I’m sharing a Smile card made with the Stampin’ Up! Birds and Branches bundle that I made during my Facebook Live video tutorial Saturday afternoon. I used the sweet stamped birds with the nest and the smile sentiment from the Lovely You stamp set. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

Here is the Facebook Live video showing how I made the card:

I also posted the video to my YouTube Channel and you can view it here if you prefer.

I made a sample card with a Sahara Sand card base and a distressed background, but I felt it was a bit dark, so the card I made in the video and pictured here is a brighter color palette. I embossed a Soft Sea Foam Panel with the Woodland embossing folder and adhered it to the front of a Thick Whisper White card base. I stamped and die cut the eggs in Balmy Blue and nest in crumb cake. I also die cut two branches in Garden Green and a background panel in Pool Party using the Stitched Nested Labels Dies.

I wanted the birds to be bluebirds like the ones in my back yard, so I stamped the male in Pacific Point and the female in Gray Granite and stamped off Pacific Point. I used the Light Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blend and Color Lifter to color the birds’ breasts and then cut them out with the coordinating dies.

I adhered the die cut branches and Pool Party die cut with liquid glue. I popped the nest on with dimensionals and filled it with the eggs. I tucked the female bird on the side with liquid glue and popped the male bird on with dimensionals. I adhered the Pool Party panel on the card front with dimensionals. I stamped the smile sentiment from the Lovely You stamp set in Soft Suede ink on a strip of Sahara Sand card stock and cut it out with the Tasteful Labels die. I adhered some linen ribbon behind it and popped it on the card front with dimensionals.

I stamped a male blue bird on a Whisper White panel using the Stampin’ Up! Birds and Branches stamp set and added another Garden Green die cut branch. I gave him some legs and adhered the panel to a Soft Sea Foam mat and then to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Birds and Branches bundle is so versatile! There is a leafy circle die cut for a window along with a leafy border. It also has a funky pair of die cut birds that would go very well with an abstract modern card and the 3-step birds allow you to combine them to create color combinations! We’ll explore these throughout the summer as we enjoy our feathered friends in our back yards!
