Stampin’ Up! Fond of Autumn for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good morning and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! I used the beautiful Stampin’ Up! Fond Of Autumn bundle for an autumn wishes card, coloring the pretty floral fie cuts with Stampin’ Blends. You can find the supplies I used along with card stock cuts at the bottom of my post.

We have a pretty sketch challenge this week and sketch we are using:

I adhered a panel of the new Fitted Florets designer series paper to the front of a Soft Succulent card base. I used the largest stitched circle die from the Stylish Shapes dies to cut a panel of Rustic Harvest designer series paper and adhered it to the card front with liquid glue.

I partially stamped the two ends of the large bouquet stamp from the Stampin’ Up! Fond Of Autumn photopolymer stamp set on two panels of Basic White card stock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and cut them out with the coordinating die that makes 4 separate die cuts. I colored pieces with Stampin’ Blends, using Dark So Saffron for the flower centers, light Soft Suede for the flower leaves, light Soft Succulent for the rounded leaves, Rich Razzleberry for the flowers, light Real Red for the berries and light Daffodil Delight for the berry leaves.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Fond Of Autumn stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Rich Razzleberry and cut it out with the long skinny banner die from the Stylish Shapes dies. I adhered the label to the card with glue dots. I adhered the die cut berries to the card with glue dots and the flowers with dimensionals. I finished the card front with a Soft Succulent bow and opal gems.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the single flower from the Stampin’ Up! Fond Of Autumn stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Basic White. I cut it out with the coordinating die and colored it with Rich Razzleberry, So Saffron and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends like the flowers on the card front. I trimmed the bottom of a Basic White panel with a strip of Fitted Florets DSP and adhered the flower on top with glue dots. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card with Stampin’ Seal.

The Stampin’ Up! Fond Of Autumn bundle is really pretty and with wonderful floral images that are fun to color. It also comes with great fall sentiments and fun dies.

Stampin’ Up! Mistletoe Magic for the Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Good morning! Welcome to the November Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop! The theme for this month’s hop is “Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays” and I am sharing a Christmas card made with the pretty Stampin’ Up! Mistletoe Magic bundle. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I adhered a panel of Lights Aglow specialty designer series paper to a Cherry Cobbler mat with liquid glue and adhered the panel to the front of a Cherry Cobbler card base with Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Mistletoe Magic cling stamp set in Versamark ink on Cherry Cobbler card stock. I sprinkled it with white embossing powder and shook off the excess. I heated the powder with my heat tool until it was bright and shiny and cut it out with the label die from the Potted Succulents dies.

I cut a Pear Pizzazz panel with the mistletoe sprig die from the Stampin’ Up! Mistletoe Magic bundle. I cut several of the berry dies from white glimmer paper using the larger berry dies twice and smallest berry die once. I adhered the berries to the mistletoe sprig with liquid glue (I had several berries left over). There are spots on the sprig die cut where the berries go, and it’s pretty easy to tell.

I adhered the label to the card front with glue dots and adhered the layered mistletoe sprig on top with glue dots. I colored a length of linen thread with the dark Real Red Stampin’ Blend and made a bow. I adhered the bow to the sprig with a rolled up glue dot and finished the label with an iridescent pearl.

For the inside of the card, I stamped little mistletoe sprig from the Stampin’ Up! Mistletoe Magic stamp set in Pear Pizzazz ink in the corner of a Basic White panel. I colored the leaves and stem with the light Old Olive Stampin’ blend and the color lifter. I stamped the sentiment in Cherry Cobbler and trimmed the bottom with a strip of Lights Aglow specialty DSP. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card with Stampin’ Seal.

The Stampin’ Up! Mistletoe Magic bundle is a sweet and simple bundle with pretty images and dies and wonderful Christmas sentiments. The die cut mistletoe sprig came together easily and is really impressive with the white glimmer paper berries.

Stampin’ Up! Hello Harvest Thinking of You Card

Good Morning! We returned to PA last week, just in time for the Fall Foliage to peak, so I was inspired to use the Stampin’ Up! Hello Harvest stamp set to capture the beauty. I finally finished my card and used the pretty sentiments from the Very Best Occasion cling stamp set with it. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I stamped the oak leaf from the Stampin’ Up! Hello Harvest stamp set several times on a Very Vanilla panel. I used a technique where I inked the stamp in one color and used a sponge dauber to apply a second color to parts of the leaf before stamping the image on the card stock. I used Crumb Cake with Parakeet Party, Calypso Coral with Parakeet Party and Crushed Curry with Calypso Coral. I cleaned the stamp after each leaf and rubbed out the excess color from my sponge daubers to keep my ink pad colors from mixing.

I embossed the stamped panel with the Leaf Fall 3D embossing folder and adhered the panel to a Crumb Cake mat. I adhered the layered panel to the front of a Calypso Coral card base with dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Very Best Occasions stamp set in Crumb Cake ink on a Crushed Curry strip and trimmed the end with my paper snips. I folded a length of natural ribbon, secured the middle with a glue dot and adhered it to the card front with Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the label over the ribbon with dimensionals and finished it with a rustic metallic dot.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment from the Very Best Occasions stamp set in Crumb Cake ink on a Very Vanilla panel. I inked up the leaf from the Stampin’ Up! Hello Harvest stamp set in Crushed Curry and Calypso coral and stamped it next to the sentiment. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card with Stampin’ Seal.

We had beautiful Fall Foliage this week, but after Halloween, half of the trees are bare – the peak passed so fast! Falling leaves are so peaceful, and these sentiments are so pretty, making a nice fall friendship card, encouragement card or even a get well card.

Stampin’ Up! Spruced Up for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good morning and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! Here is a CAS (clean and simple) card made with the fun Stampin’ Up! Spruced Up bundle with a pretty embossed background You can find the supplies I used along with card stock cuts at the bottom of my post.

We have a theme challenge this week and our theme is Christmas!

I embossed a panel of Basic White with the fun Whimsical Woodland 3D embossing folder and adhered it to a Basic White mat.

I used the ornament dies from the Stampin’ Up! Spruced Up bundle to cut outlines from Real Red, Tahitian Tide and Parakeet Party glimmer paper. I used a dark Shaded Spruce Stampin’ blend to color the Parakeet Party ornament darker. I adhered the ornaments to the embossed panel with dots of liquid glue. After they dried, I adhered the embossed panel to the front of a Thick Basic White card base.

I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Spruced Up photopolymer stamp set in Versamark ink on strips of Basic Black and sprinkled them with white embossing powder. I shook off the excess powder and heated them with my heat tool until they were bright and shiny. I trimmed the ends and adhered the sentiments to the card front with glue dots. I adhered some rhinestones around the card for a little more bling.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Spruced Up stamp set in Shaded Spruce ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the present in Real Red next to the sentiments and adhered the panel to the inside of the card with Stampin’ Seal.

The Stampin’ Up! Spruced Up bundle is pretty versatile and great for clean and simple Christmas cards. The outline dies for the trees and ornaments is really unique – it’s a fun set to play with!

Stampin’ Up! Sweet Candy Canes Christmas Wishes Card

Good Morning! The Stampin’ Up! Sweet Candy Canes bundle is so cute for holiday cards and crafts. I especially love that you have dies and stamps for two symmetrical candy canes. I used the dies to cut candy canes from the Sweetest Christmas designer series paper for today’s card. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I embossed a Basic White panel with the Whimsical Woodland 3D embossing folder and adhered a Garden Green strip of Sweetest Christmas designer series paper across the front with liquid glue. I adhered the layered panel to the front of a Real Red card base. I cut a real red panel with the second smallest Scalloped Contours rectangle die and adhered a Real Red panel of Sweetest Christmas DSP to the front before adhering it to the card with liquid glue.

I cut two candy canes from the Sweetest Christmas DSP using the dies from the Stampin’ Up! Sweet Candy Canes bundle. I cut two more candy canes from Basic White and adhered the DSP candy canes to the front with liquid glue. I adhered the candy canes to the card with liquid glue. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Sweet Candy Canes cling stamp set in Real Red on Basic White and cut it out with the Stylish Shapes banner die.

I adhered the label to the card with dimensionals and glue dots. I stamped the leaf sprig from the Stampin’ Up! Sweet Candy Canes stamp set twice in Garden Green on Basic White and cut them out with the coordinating die. I adhered the leaf sprigs to the card with dimensionals and finished the label with three red rhinestones. I used the Real Red ruffled ribbon to make a bow and adhered it to the candy canes with a glue dot.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Sweet Candy Canes stamp set in Real Red on a Basic White panel. I stamped two of the leaf sprigs in Garden Green in the corner of the panel and trimmed the bottom with a strip of Garden Green Sweetest Christmas DSP before adhering it to the inside of the card with Stampin’ Seal.

The Stampin’ Up! Sweet Candy Canes bundle is so cute and makes for festive Christmas cards, tags or decorations.

Stampin’ Up! Splendid Thoughts Christmas Card

Good Morning! Today I made a Christmas card with the beautiful Stampin’ Up! Splendid Thoughts bundle and the Brightest Glow stamp set. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I adhered a panel of Soft Succulent Festive Foils specialty paper to a Real Red mat. I die cut some sprigs using the dies from the Stampin’ Up! Splendid Thoughts bundle from Evening Evergreen Glimmer paper, Silver Foil and Real Red card stock.

I stamped the large greenery outline from the Stampin’ Up! Splendid Thoughts cling stamp set in Pear Pizzazz on Basic White. I inked up the leaf stamp with Pear Pizzazz and stamped if off before stamping it over the leaves. I cut it out with the coordinating die. The leaf stamp doesn’t line up with the outline stamp giving the image an abstract textural look. I adhered the large Evening Evergreen die cut to the layered panel with dots of liquid glue and adhered the stamped greenery over it with glue dots. I adhered the Silver Foil and Real Red die cuts with dots of liquid glue.

I stamped the sentiment from the Brightest Glow stamp set in Versamark ink on a Soft Succulent panel. I sprinkled it with Silver embossing powder and shook off the excess. I heated it with my heat tool until it was bright and shiny and cut it out with the label die from the Stampin’ Up! Splendid Thoughts bundle. I adhered the die to the panel with dimensionals and popped the panel on the front of a Soft Succulent card base with dimensionals, covering the stems. I finished the card with silver pearls.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the pretty sentiment from the Brightest Glow stamp set in Real Red on a Basic White panel. I stamped the outline greenery from the Stampin’ Up! Splendid Thoughts stamp set in Pear Pizzazz in the corner and stamped the leaf over it in stamped off Pear Pizzazz. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card with Stampin’ Seal.

The Stampin’ Up! Splendid Thoughts bundle is so beautiful, so I thought I would try it in a Christmas palette. It’s an elegant twist on a Christmas greeting.

Stampin’ Up! Fond of Autumn Just A Note Card

Good Morning! The Stampin’ Up! Fond Of Autumn bundle is a beautiful set and today I paired it with the Fabulous Frames dies and metallic foil for a Fall floral note card. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I adhered a panel of Evening Evergreen Boughs of Holly designer series paper to the front of an Evening Evergreen card base with liquid glue. I cut a panel of copper Brushed Metallic foil with the small scalloped frame from the Fabulous Frames dies. I adhered a panel of Layering Designs Vellum to the back of the frame with dots of liquid glue and adhered the frame to the front of the card with glue dots.

I stamped one of the large floral bouquet stamp from the Stampin’ Up! Fond Of Autumn stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Basic White and I cut it out with the 4 section large die. I only needed two more berry sprigs, so I inked up the berry part of the stamp and stamped it on a smaller Basic White panel before cutting it out with the 4 section die. I colored the pieces with Stampin’ Blends. Cajun Craze for the berries, So Saffron for the berry leaves, Pale Papaya and Soft Suede for the flowers Soft Succulent and Old Olive for the flower leaves. I stamped the small single flower in Memento Tuxedo Black, cut it out with the coordinating die and colored it with Soft Suede, Pale Papaya and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends.

I arranged the berry clusters on the inside and outside of the frame and adhered them with glue dots. I adhered the large flower with dimensionals over the berries. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Fond Of Autumn stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black on the right end of a strip of Pale Papaya card stock. I used paper snips to trim the end and adhered it to the card with dimensionals and glue dots. I adhered the flower over the end of the label banner with glue dots and added three Pale Papaya Opal Gems around the bouquet.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the berry end of the large floral bouquet stamp from the Stampin’ Up! Fond Of Autumn stamp set using Memento Tuxedo Black ink in the corners of a Basic White panel and colored them with Cajun Craze and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card with Stampin’ Seal. I cut one of the picture corners from copper Brushed Metallic foil and adhered it to a lower corner with liquid glue.

The Stampin’ Up! Fond Of Autumn stamp bundle is such a pretty bundle and the images are great for coloring.

Stampin’ Up! Leaves of Holly for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good morning and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! Here is a rustic Christmas card made with the wonderful Stampin’ Up! Leaves of Holly bundle along with the pretty Painted Christmas designer series paper. You can find the supplies I used along with card stock cuts at the bottom of my post.

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

I stamped the sentiment from the Mistletoe Magic cling stamp set in Versamark ink on a strip of Boughs of Holly designer series paper. I sprinkled it with white embossing powder and shook off the excess. I heated the powder with my heat tool until it was bright and shiny. I adhered the panel to the bottom of a Painted Christmas designer series paper and then adhered the layered panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat. I adhered the layered DSP to the front of a Crumb Cake card base with dimensionals.

I stamped two of the small detailed holly leaves and one of the large detailed holly leaf from the Stampin’ Up! Leaves of Holly photopolymer stamp set using Mossy Meadow ink on Mossy Meadow card stock and cut them out with the coordinating dies. I cut two each of the pine sprigs from the Holly Berry dies from Garden Green. I cut the detailed berries from Real Red and the background berries from Poppy Parade and adhered them together with dots of liquid glue.

I arranged my die cuts on the card front to determine where to place them and started by adhering the pine sprigs with dots of liquid glue. I adhered the small holly leaves with liquid glue and the large leaf and berries with dimensionals. I made a bow with gold twine and adhered it under the berries with a glue dot.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment from the Mistletoe Magic stamp set in Cherry Cobbler on a Basic White panel. I inked up the small holly leaf stamp from the Stampin’ Up! Leaves Of Holly stamp set in Mossy Meadow and stamped it off twice before stamping it on the panel. I adhered a strip of Painted Christmas DSP to the bottom of the panel and adhered the panel to the inside of the card with Stampin’ Seal.

The Stampin’ Up! Leaves of Holly bundle is so versatile that it can create very elegant Christmas cards with foil and rustic ones against Crumb Cake. So many ways to express Holiday creativity.

I stamped the pretty sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Brightest Glow stamp set in Versamark ink on a Basic White panel. I sprinkled it with gold embossing powder and shook off the excess. I heated the powder with my heat tool until it was bright and shiny and cut it out with the second smallest Scalloped Contours dies.

I adhered the label to the card front with dimensionals and finished it with gold pearls. I tied a length of gold trim around the fold and made a loopy bow to finish the card.

Stampin’ Up! Spruced Up Embossed Tree Christmas Card

Good Morning! The Stampin’ Up! Spruced Up is a fun Christmas bundle with bold modern graphic Christmas Trees, ornaments and presents. I used one of the Christmas trees with the pretty Painted Christmas designer series paper for today’s card. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I adhered a panel of Painted Christmas DSP to a Pear Pizzazz mat with liquid glue and adhered it to the front of a Soft Sea Foam card base with dimensionals. I embossed a panel of vellum with the snowflake embossing folder from the Wintry 3D embossing folders and adhered it to the front with Stampin’ Seal.

I stamped the large tree from the Stampin’ Up! Spruced Up photopolymer stamp set in Versamark ink on Garden Green card stock. I sprinkled it with white embossing powder and shook off the excess. I heat set the powder with my heat tool until it was bright and shiny, then I cut it out with the coordinating die.

I adhered the embossed tree to the card front with dimensionals, covering the Stampin’ Seal adhesive under the vellum. I cut a little star with the Stampin’ Up! Spruced Up dies from white glimmer paper and adhered it to the tree top with a bit of dimensional. I finished the card by decorating the tree with pretty white Seasonal Adhesive Sequins.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Spruced Up stamp set on a Basic White panel in Garden Green ink. I trimmed the bottom with a strip of Painted Christmas DSP and adhered the panel to the inside of the card with Stampin’ Seal.

The bold designs in the Stampin’ Up! Spruced Up bundle make beautiful simple Christmas cards without fuss. And the dies are wonderfully designed to cut an outline design at the same time as you cut the stamped image. I saved the outline tree from this card for an upcoming card.
