Stampin’ Up! Sending You Thoughts for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Morning! Welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! My share for today’s hop is a tag card made with the Stampin’ Up! Sending You Thoughts stamp set and the Sending Flowers Dies.

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

Today’s card was also inspired by the Sunday Stamps Sketch Challenge SSC224 Tag You’re it.

I cut a panel of Best Dressed floral designer series paper and a strip of a matching striped Best Dressed designer series paper and adhered them together. I adhered them to a Lovely Lipstick mat and attached them to a Mint Macaron card base with dimensionals. I used the tag die from the Bonanza dies to cut a tag from the striped Best Dressed designer series paper. I used the Bonanza dies tag die to cut tags from Pool Party and Lovely Lipstick card stock. I cut a rectangle out of the Lovely Lipstick tag using one of the rectangles from the Stitched Rectangles dies.

I used the large Sending Flowers die to cut some flowers from a panel of Mint Macaron. I colored the stems with the Dark Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blend. I adhered the stems to the Pool Party tag with multipurpose liquid glue and trimmed off the excess. I cut three sets of the Sending Flowers flower dies from a strip of Petal Pink card stock and adhered them to the stems with multipurpose liquid glue (Note: I saved one of the large petal flower centers for the inside of the card). I adhered the Lovely Lipstick tag on top with multipurpose liquid glue. I stamped the thanks greeting from the Stampin’ Up! Sending You Thoughts stamp set on a little scrap of Mint Macaron, trimmed it up and adhered it to the bottom of the tag with glue dots.

I die cut the little butterfly from the Well Written dies on a scrap of Lovely Lipstick and adhered it to the tag with multipurpose liquid glue. I adhered the floral tag to the Best Dressed striped designer series paper tag with snail and adhered it to the card front with dimensionals. I finished it off by adding yellow rhinestones to the flower centers and topping the tags with a Mint Macaron bow.

On the inside of the card, I adhered the strip of Best Dressed floral DSP to the bottom of a Whisper White Panel. I die cut two more stems with he Sending Flowers dies in Mint Macaron and adhered them to the panel with multipurpose liquid glue. I adhered the Petal Pink flowers on top, including the large flower center. I cut another large petal flower in Whisper White and colored the center with Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blend before adhering it to the center of the large flower. I adhered the panel to a Lovely Lipstick mat before adhering to the inside of the card with snail.

The Stampin’ Up! Sending You Thoughts stamp set is a Sale-A-Bration stamp set that is FREE with a $50 order and it has a great selection of sentiments in a great font. The Sending Flowers dies are part of the new Coordination Product Release. Both of these products are available now while supplies last.

Stampin’ Up! Kerchief Card Kit

Good Morning! Today I have a set of cards that I made with the FREE Sale-A-Bration Stampin’ Up! Kerchief Card Kit and they are so adorable! I made most of the cards using the examples in the kit, but did made some modifications to two of them to give you a small taste of the possibilities. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

The Stampin’ Up! Kerchief Card Kit is a Sale-A-Bration item that is FREE with a $50 purchase. It has all the supplies needed to make 8 4 1/4″ x 5″ cards in two designs. It is inspired by pretty bandana prints and reminds me of my free-spirited youth – tying a bandana around my head to keep my hair out of my face.

The Stampin’ Up! Kerchief Card Kit comes with:

  • 8 printed card bases and envelopes, 4 in blue and 4 in red
  • Printed die-cut accents including printed labels
  • Gold foil accents
  • Vellum accents
  • Twine
  • Adhesive (glue dots and dimensionals)
  • Instruction sheet

The labels have the sentiments printed on them, so there is no need for stamp and ink, and there are sentiments in English, French and German included (I only used the English sentiments).

The colors are Balmy Blue, Coastal Cabana, Early Espresso, gold, Mossy Meadow, Night of Navy, Petal Pink, Pear Pizzazz, Poppy Parade, and white.

I started each card by adhering the vellum to the centers. On the blue cards, I adhered a few glue dots behind the gold dots. On the red cards, I just ran snail down the middle since it will be covered by the label. I punched out all the die cuts and trimmed the excess, including the gold foil accents. On the blue cards, I adhered the labels and then adhered the die cuts and foil accents on the Night of Navy disks. I adhered the flowers with dimensionals and the rest with glue dots. I adhered the disks on the card front with dimensionals and then made the bows and adhered them with glue dots.

On the red cards, I adhered the gold foil accents with glue dots and then adhered the labels with dimensionals. I finally made the bows and adhered them with glue dots.

On these cards, I just changed up the labels so that I had thank you cards. On the blue card, I die cut the thanks sentiment from the Well Written dies in Night of Navy card stock and adhered it to the card in place of the label. On the red card I needed to use a label to cover the center, so I stamped thank you sentiment from the Peaceful Moments stamp set in Poppy Parade ink on a small Whisper White panel and cut it out with the Small Label die from the Painted Labels dies. I applied it in place of the provided label with dimensionals.

The Stampin’ Up! Kerchief Card kit is a pretty and sweet Sale-A-Bration (free with $50 purchase) set that makes pretty and quick any occasion cards. And since it’s Stampin’ Up!, you can also mix the up with other items in your stash to make perfectly matched alternative designs if you want.

Stampin’ Up! Painted Poppies You are the Best Card

Good Morning and Happy Valentine’s Day! Today’s card is made with the beautiful and versatile Stampin’ Up! Painted Poppies 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.

I stamped the small poppy field stamp from the Stampin’ Up! Painted Poppies stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on thick Whisper White card stock. I stamped twice so that the flowers would go across the panel. I cut out the panel with the largest scalloped rectangle from the Stitched So Sweetly dies. I colored the flowers with the light Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blend.

I cut a panel of Gray Granite card stock with the third largest Stitched Rectangle die and ran it through the Stone embossing folder. The Stone embossing folder is a Sale-A-Bration item that comes in the Power of Hope bundle that is FREE with a $100 purchase. I adhered the stamped thick Whisper White panel over the embossed panel with dimensionals. I adhered the embossed panel over a Poppy Parade card base with dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Varied Vases stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a strip of Poppy Parade card stock. I cut out the label using the long thin Stitched Rectangle die using the two-step partial die cutting method so that it would be long enough for the entire sentiment. I adhered it to the poppy panel with glue dots. I colored some basic pearls with my dark Basic Black Stampin’ Blend and added them to the panel to finish it off.

I stamped the middle section of the small poppy field stamp from the Stampin’ Up! Painted Poppies stamp set across a strip of Whisper White. I colored the flowers with the Light Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blend and adhered it to the bottom of a Whisper White panel. I adhered the panel to a Gray Granite mat and then to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Painted Poppies stamp set is so versatile because it has so many different poppy images that can be used to make pretty cards. I hope you try this simple design.

Stampin’ Up! Breathtaking Bouquet Wedding Card for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Morning! Welcome to another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! I made an elegant wedding card with the new Stampin’ Up! Breathtaking Bouquet stamp set to share today.

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

I started by stamping the Stampin’ Up! Breathtaking Bouquet background stamp set on a panel of Basic Black card stock using VersaMark Ink. I sprinkled it with Gold embossing powder and heat set. I cut it out with the third largest of the Stitched Rectangles dies. I cut a panel of Gold Foil and ran it through the Subtle embossing folder and adhered it to a Basic Black mat. I popped the embossed gold foil on a Thick Whisper White card base with dimensionals. I popped the floral embossed basic black die cut panel on the card front with dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Forever Blossoms stamp set in VersaMark Ink on a panel of Whisper White. I sprinkled Gold embossing powder on it and heat set. I cut it out with a Stitched Nested Label die. I stamped the top of the birthday cake from the Happy Birthday to You Sale-A-Bration stamp set twice on a panel of Basic Black card stock in VersaMark Ink. I sprinkled them with Gold embossing powder and heat set. I cut each cluster with the coordinating die from the Birthday Dies and I fussy cut the top flower in each cluster. I put one aside for the inside of the card.

I cut the leaf spray from the Birthday dies on a panel of Gold foil giving me two dies. I adhered the dies and label to the card front with glue dots. I adhered the Happy Birthday to You flower to the card front with dimensionals. I finished the card front with a gold glitter enamel dot.

For the inside, I stamped the sentiment from Forever Blossoms on a Whisper White panel using VersaMark Ink. I sprinkled it with Gold embossing powder and heat set. I added a strip of Gold foil that was embossed with the Subtle embossing folder to the bottom and adhered the panel to a Basic Black mat. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card with snail. I finished the inside with the second Happy Birthday to You embossed flower.

It’s fun to use Foil in making cards, and it is so elegant and beautiful when embossed. Good thing there are Weddings to have an excuse to be so extravagant!

Stampin’ Up! Sending You Thoughts and Sending Flowers Congratulations Card

Good Morning! Today is Coordination Products Release Day!! And to celebrate, I have a special spring congratulations card made with a the Stampin’ Up! Sending Flowers die set that is part of the new items available today. 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 a panel of the striped Pleased as Punch designer series paper, which is also available today in the Coordination Product Release, and adhered it to a Granny Apple Green card base.

I cut the pretty circular floral die from the Stampin’ Up! Sending Flowers dies from Thick Whisper White Card Stock. I colored the stems and leaves on each flower with the Light Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blend. I cut two sets of flowers each from Highland Heather, Blushing Bride, Pool Party and Daffodil Delight card stock. I adhered the die cut flowers on each stem of the frame with tiny dots of multipurpose liquid glue. I adhered the die cut panel on the card front with dimensionals, carefully trimming and placing a piece of a dimensional behind each flower. I accented each of the petal flowers with a pearl.

I cut the scalloped label from Pool Party card stock using the scalloped label die from the Stampin’ Up! Sending Flowers dies. I stamped the Congratulation! sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Sending You Thoughts Sale-A-Bration stamp set in Granny Apple Green ink on a strip of Daffodil Delight card stock. I cut it out with the banner die from the Sending Flowers dies using the two step technique so that it would be shorter than normal. I adhered the labels together with snail and adhered it to the card with snail. I stamped the Whisper White crinkle ribbon with Pool Party ink and the small splotch stamp in the Painted Petals stamp set. I tied a bow and adhered it to the label with a glue dot. I finished the label with a pearl on the other end.

I decorated the inside by adhering some of the leftover die cut flowers on the bottom of a Whisper White panel. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card. A cheerful Spring themed congratulations card is great for many occasions – new baby, graduation, engagement, promotion – all wonderful causes for celebration!

The Stampin’ Up! Sending You Thoughts Sale-A-Bration stamp set is FREE with a $50 purchase during Sale-A-Bration which is going on now. It has lots of cute sentiments that can be used for many occasions. The Stampin’ Up! Sending Flowers die set and Pleased as Punch designer series paper are finally available today for the first time as part of the Coordination Release! This special release has products that coordinate with Sale-A-Bration items or items in the new Catalog.

Stampin’ Up! Little Ladybug Birthday Card for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Morning! Welcome to another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! One of my favorite sets from Sale-A-Bration is the Stampin’ Up! Little Ladybug stamp set, so I’m featuring it in this week’s blog hop:

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

I embossed a panel of Granny Apple Green card stock with the Layered Leaves embossing folder and adhered it to a Basic Black mat. Using the largest circle in the Stitched Shapes dies, I cut a circle with Pool Party card stock. I used the largest scalloped circle from the Layering Circles dies to cut a mat with Basic Black card stock.

I stamped the large flower from the Stampin’ Up! Little Ladybug stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Whisper White card stock. I colored it with So Saffron, Light Mango Melody, Light Granny Apple Green and Dark Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends. I cut it out with the coordinating die from the Ladybugs dies. I cut it again with the large stitched circle die so that it aligns with the Pool Party circle. I adhered the flower to the Pool Party circle and then to the Basic Black scalloped circle mat with multipurpose liquid glue. I adhered the layered circles to the Granny Apple Green embossed background with multipurpose liquid glue and popped them all on a So Saffron card base with dimensionals.

I stamped the ladybug in Memento Tuxedo Black on Thick Whisper White and colored it with Light Real Red, Light Petal Pink and both Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends. I cut it out with the coordinating die from the Ladybugs dies and popped it on the Pool Party circle with dimensionals. I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Little Ladybug stamp set on a strip of So Saffron card stock in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I cut it out with the banner die from the Sending Flowers dies. I cut a backing from Granny Apple Green card stock using the scalloped label die from the Sending Flowers dies. I adhered these together with glue dots. I adhered a length of Whisper White Flax ribbon behind the labels with glue dots and adhered the layered label on the card with a glue dot behind the circle and dimensionals on the embossed background. I finished off the card front with a Daffodil Delight bow and three red gemstones.

On the inside of the card, I stamped a row of the little playful ladybugs from the Stampin’ Up! Little Ladybug stamp set on a Whisper White panel using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I colored them with the Light Petal Pink, Light Real Red and Light Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends. I embossed a strip of Granny Apple Green card stock with the Layered Leaves embossing folder and adhered it to the bottom of the panel. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card with snail.

The cute Stampin’ Up! Little Ladybug set is a Sale-A-Bration host item that is FREE when your party is over $300 in sales (or if you place an order over $300). The Ladybugs dies is a Coordination Release item that is currently available to demonstrators during Pre-Order and will be available to Customers starting February 4, 2020. The Sending Flowers dies is also a Coordination Release item that will be available on February 4th. Visit my Stampin’ Up! Promotions page for full details on Sale-A-Bration and the Coordination Products Release.

Stampin’ Up! Lovely Lily Pad Get Well Card

Good Morning! Today I have a get well card made with the Stampin’ Up! Lovely Lily Pad photopolymer stamp set. This stamp set is FREE during Sale-A-Bration with a $50 order! Many of the products used in today’s card are Sale-A-Bration items and I will point them out as I mention them. You can find all the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I cut a panel of the Lily Impressions designer series paper and adhered it to a Pretty Peacock mat with snail. The Lily Impressions designer series paper is another Sale-A-Bration item that is FREE with a $50 order and it’s so pretty! I stamped the large lily and two of the small lilies from the Stampin’ Up! Lovely Lily Pad stamp set in Petal Pink ink on a panel of shimmer white card stock. I used my aqua painter and Petal Pink ink to add color to the base of each petal, leaving the tips white. I did this by smooshing the ink pad to deposit ink on the lid (or you can smoosh it on an extra stamp block) and picked up the ink with the tip of the aqua painter brush and use it to color the image. The shimmer white paper is safe for water coloring, so I chose to use it instead of water color paper – plus you get the benefits of the sparkle!

After coloring the large lily and two small lilies, I cut them out with the Lily Pad dies. The Lily Pad Dies is another FREE Sale-A-Bration product with a $100 order. I stamped a large lily pad leaf from the Stampin’ Up! Lovely Lily Pad stamp set and two of the smaller leaves using Soft Sea Foam ink on Soft Sea Foam card stock. I cut the leaves out with the Lily Pad dies. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Sending You Thoughts stamp set – another Sale-A-Bration item that is available for FREE with a $50 order – using Pretty Peacock ink on a strip of vellum. Ink takes longer to dry on vellum, so I set it aside for a while. After it was dry, I wrapped it around the matted DSP panel and secured it in the back with snail.

I adhered the large lily pad leaf to the Lily Impressions panel with dimensionals and adhered the flower on top with dimensionals. I adhered a small lily leaf and flower with snail. I tied a short length of Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle and tucked it under the flower with a glue dot. I made a bow with Grapefruit Grove Twine and tucked it on top of the tulle with a glue dot. I adhered the panel to a Pool Party card base with dimensionals.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment from the Sending You Thoughts stamp set on a Whisper White panel using Pretty Peacock ink. I added the last small flower and leaf to the top corner and a strip of the Lily Impressions designer series paper to the bottom. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card with snail.

Sale-A-Bration is the best Stampin’ Up! promotion of the year and the items that are available this year are are incredible! The Stampin’ Up! Lovely Lily Pad stamp set is also special in that it is specially made to be reversible! You can flip the stamp over on the stamp pad and stamp the solid image on the reverse! Sale-A-Bration is going on now through March 31.
