Stampin’ Up! Heart To Heart for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Morning and welcome to another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! I have a Valentine’s Day card made with the Stampin’ Up Heart To Heart stamp set and the beautiful Love You Always specialty designer series paper and matching foil sheets. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

We have a sketch challenge this week, and here is the pretty sketch we are using. I think it’s a Valentine’s Day sketch!

I embossed a panel of Blushing Bride card stock with the Scripty 3D embossing folder and adhered it to the front of a Blushing Bride card base. I cut a Blushing Bride foil sheet and a Blushing Bride Love You Always specialty designer series paper with the two different scalloped rectangle dies from the Stitched So Sweetly diesI adhered these together with liquid glue and adhered them to the card front.

I stamped the lattice heart from the Heartfelt stamp set in Blushing Bride on Basic White and cut it out with the plain heart punch from the Heart Punch Pack. I used the scalloped heart punch to punch out a heart from the Blushing Bride Foil and adhered the stamped heart to the front. I cut a little heart from the remaining foil using the heart die from the Lasting Elegance dies and adhered it to the center of the heart and popped the heart on the card front with dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Heart To Heart stamp set in Rococo Rose and cut it out with the label die from the Always dies using the two step cutting method to make the label fit the sentiment. I cut another label with the same die from the Blushing Bride foil using the same method, but making it a little longer. I adhered the two labels together and adhered it to the card front with dimensionals and glue dots.

On a Basic White panel, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Heart To Heart stamp set in Rococo Rose. I stamped the flower in Blushing Bride, the stem in Pear Pizzazz and heart in Rococo Rose. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Heart To Heart stamp set has pretty sentiments and images for traditional Valentines – hearts and flowers. The beautiful new Love You Always specialty designer series paper and matching foil sheets are also perfect for fancy Valentines, but they are also great for Weddings, Anniversaries and even extra special Birthdays.

Stampin’ Up! Boho Indigo Thank You Card

Good Morning! Today I have a fun fold thank you card made with the pretty Stampin’ Up! Boho Indigo Product Medley. You can find the supplies at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I adhered a panel of the embossed Very Vanilla card stock from the Stampin’ Up! Boho Indigo product medley to a Misty Moonlight panel with liquid Glue. I adhered the card base to the panel with liquid glue and adhered the panel of floral Stampin’ Up! Boho Indigo DSP to the front.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Boho Indigo stamp set in Misty Moonlight on a strip of Very Vanilla and trimmed the ends with the Banner Pick A Punch. I adhered it to the card front with glue dots. I cut out two large leaves from Pear Pizzazz and one leaf from Mossy Meadow using the Stampin’ Up! Boho Indigo leaf dies. I stamped the large basket in Cinnamon Cider ink on Very Vanilla and cut it out with the coordinating die.

I arranged the leaves on the card front and adhered them to the card with glue dots. I adhered the basket with dimensionals and added an enamel dot to finish the label.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the flower trio from the Stampin’ Up! Boho Indigo stamp set in the corners of a Very Vanilla panel with Misty Moonlight ink. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

This fun fold card was pretty easy to make and it was fun to change things up a bit. The Stampin’ Up! Boho Indigo product medley has tons of coordinating products and there’s a refill kit too. The product medley includes:

  • 11-piece photopolymer stamp set
  • 48 sheets of 6″ x 6″ DSP
  • 6 sheets of Very Vanilla 6″ x 6″ dry embossed card stock
  • die cuts with gold foil accents 
  • 10 yards of Night of Navy ribbon
  • 10 yards of Very Vanilla/gold ribbon 
  • paper flowers, 20 each in 2 sizes; 
  • 12-piece Boho Indigo Dies

Like other kits, the product medley has die cuts with gold foil accents and coordinating embellishments to make your cards pretty. But unlike other kits, the product medley has full size DSP packs, ribbons, stamps & dies! And there are no pre-made card instructions, so you can really unleash your creativity. And of course, everything is in Stampin’ Up! colors, so you can coordinate with other things in your stampin’ stash!

Stampin’ Up! Well Written Thank You Cards

Good Morning! Today I want to share a set of thank you cards using the Stampin’ Up! Well Written Dies with the Sale A Bration Flower & Field designer series paper. You can find the supplies at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I used the Basic White Note Cards and Envelopes as my card bases. These are nice, thick card bases that don’t need a liner and meet the minimum size requirement to be mailed by the US Postal Service, so they are perfect for a quick thank you or for a little set of cards. They are pre-scored, so you just need to fold it and burnish the edge well with your bone folder.

I embossed a panel of Basic White with the Little Details embossing folder. I adhered the striped paper to the floral paper from the Flower & Field designer series paper and adhered them both to the bottom of the embossed panel. I adhered the panel to the front of the note card.

I adhered a strip of adhesive sheets to the back of a Basic White strip and cut out the thanks sentiment die from the Stampin’ Up! Well Written dies. I peeled the backing off and adhered the word to the floral designer series paper and finished off the card front with a Black Matte dot.

I love the Stampin’ Up! Well Written dies for making die cut words. The font is sweet and casual and there are words for lots of occasions. And I love the Little Details embossing folders with all the different stitches – it adds wonderful texture to the white background.

Stampin’ Up! Approaching Perfection for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! Today I used the Stampin’ Up! Approaching Perfection Sale A Bration stamp set with the Sale A Bration Field & Flower designer series paper to make a cute birthday card. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

We have a sketch challenge this week, and here is the cute sketch we are using:

I adhered a panel of the So Saffron Subtles 6″ x 6″ designer series paper to the front of a So Saffron card base. I used the Detailed Trio punch to round the corners of a Just Jade panel and adhered a panel of Flower & Field designer series paper cut from the Stitched Rectangle Dies to the center. I popped it on the card front with dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Approaching Perfection cling stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a Just Jade panel and cut it out with the Stitched Rectangle Die. I adhered it to the floral panel with glue dots. I stamped the small daisy from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Bumblebee ink three times on a white panel. I cut them out with the medium daisy punch and adhered them together with liquid glue.

I used the small flower center die from the Wreath Builder Dies to cut a Just Jade circle. I embossed it with the Tasteful Textile embossing folder and covered it with shimmery crystal effects for sparkle and shine and let it dry. I adhered it to the flower center with a dimensional and adhered the flower to the card front with dimensionals. I added a Bumblebee gingham bow and a Rococo Rose butterfly gem to finish the card.

I stamped the sentiment and balloons from the Stampin’ Up! Approaching Perfection stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a white panel and colored the balloons with the Real Red and Rococo Rose Stampin’ Blends. I added a strip of Flowers & Field DSP to the bottom before adhering it to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Approaching Perfection stamp set has fun, witty birthday sentiments that make it a wonderful Sale A Bration selection. It is FREE with a $50 purchase (before shipping and taxes). And the Field & Flowers designer series paper is another pretty Sale A Bration option. Sale A Bration is going on now and runs through February 28.
