Stampin’ Up! Wonderful World Sneak Peek for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good morning and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! On July 1, Sale-A-Bration Part 2 will start and today’s card has a sneak peek of one of the prettiest items – the Stampin’ Up! Wonderful World bundle.  This bundle consists of a pretty floral cling stamp set and beautiful coordinating designer series paper. You can find the currently available supplies I used along with card stock cuts at the bottom of my post.

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

I adhered the two sheets of Stampin’ Up! Wonderful World designer series paper together with liquid glue so that they were on an angle.  I adhered the layered DSP to the front of a Pear Pizzazz card base with liquid glue. I used the Banners Pick A Punch to cut the ends of three additional strips of DSP and adhered them to the front with liquid glue.  I stamped the sentiment from the Ranunculus Romance stamp set in Rick Razzleberry on the right side of a thin strip of Basic White. I punched the end and adhered it to the card front with liquid glue.

I used my Stamparatus and Rick Razzleberry and Pear Pizzazz Stampin’ Write markers to stamp the pretty rose from the Stampin’ Up! Wonderful World stamp set on Basic White.  I mounted my stamp on the top and secured the card stock on the bottom of the Stamparatus.  I colored the flower with the brush tip of the Rich Razzleberry marker, huffed on the stamp and closed the lid.  I colored the stem and leaves with the brush tip of the Pear Pizzazz Stampin’ Write marker, huffed on the stamp and closed the lid.  I love how well the Stamparatus works with this technique to give me two colors on one stamp!

I fussy cut the flower with my paper snips and adhered it to the card front with bits of dimensional.  I finished the card front with a white crinkle ribbon bow and three beautiful iridescent pearls.

For the inside, I adhered a panel of the Wonderful World DSP to the side of a Basic White panel and adhered it to the inside of the card.

A simple floral card for any occasion! Here is the pretty Stampin’ Up! Wonderful World cling stamp set:

And here is the pretty designer series paper pack:

You get both of these as a bundle as a Sale-A-Bration free item. The pretty Stampin’ Up! Wonderful World stamp bundle will be available starting July 1 with Sale-A-Bration as a free item with a $100 order (before tax and shipping). Here is a picture of the upcoming July-December 2022 Mini Catalog and July-August Sale-A-Bration Brochure:

Stampin’ Up! Daffodil Daydream for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good morning and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! I am sharing a Hello card today made with the beautiful Stampin’ Up! Daffodil Daydream bundle and the Sale-A-Bration Special Moments stamp set. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

We have a Theme Challenge this week. We’re sharing Spring projects and for me daffodils are one of the first signs of spring!

I adhered a panel of the Sale-A-Bration Daffodil Afternoon designer series paper to a Very Vanilla mat and wrapped a length of Pale Papaya ribbon around it and tied a knot. I popped it on the front of a Pale Papaya card base with dimensionals. I cut a panel of Very Vanilla with the second largest circle from the Layering circle die and a panel of Pale Papaya with the second largest scalloped circle die. I embossed the Very Vanilla circle with the Meadow Moments embossing folder and adhered it to the scalloped circle. I adhered the layered circles to the card front with dimensionals over the ribbon.

I stamped stamped a Very Vanilla panel with the single daffodil from the Stampin’ Up! Daffodil Daydream cling stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I colored it with Pale Papaya and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends and I used a blender pen to apply craft white ink on the bottom petals. I cut it out with the coordinating die and adhered it to the embossed circle with glue dots.

I stamped the sentiment from the Sale-A-Bration Special Moments stamp set in Old Olive on a Very Vanilla panel. I cut it out with the small pinked circle from the Tasteful Labels dies and adhered it to the card front with glue dots. I finished the card front with the pretty little brushed brass butterflies.

For the inside, I inked up the small daffodil stamp from the Stampin’ Up! Daffodil Daydream stamp set in Pale Papaya ink and stamped it off twice before stamping in the center of a Very Vanilla panel. I trimmed the bottom with a strip of the Daffodil Afternoon DSP and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Daffodil Daydream bundle is really versatile with pretty stamped daffodils and awesome die cut daffodils, so be sure to check it out. And don’t forget that Sale-A-Bration is ending on Monday! There are only 5 days left to pick up Sale-A-Bration items, such as the Special Moments stamp set or the Daffodil Afternoon DSP, for Free with your qualifying orders, so don’t delay.

Friendly Hello bundle This is a beautiful set of coordinating stamps and designer series paper that you can get for FREE with a $100 purchase during Sale-A-Bration! You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I adhered the Stampin’ Up! Friendly Hello designer series paper panels to each scored section of the Basic Black panel, burnished the score lines, and adhered the folded Basic Black panel to the front of the Fresh Freesia card base. I cut a panel of the DSP with the second largest Scalloped Contours die and adhered it to the card front.

I traced the outline of the die from one of the Tasteful Labels dies on a Basic Black panel and fussy cut it out with my paper snips. I used the die to cut a panel of the Stampin’ Up! Friendly Hello DSP with the bird and flowers, and adhered it to the fussy cut Basic Black mat. I stamped the bird image from the Stampin’ Up! Friendly Hello stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored it with Pool Party, Fresh Freesia and Pale Papaya Stampin’ Blends. I fussy cut the bird and flowers and adhered them to the die cut with dimensionals. I adhered the die cut to the card front with Tear & Tape and finished the flowers with Pale Papaya rhinestones.

I stamped the double flower from the Stampin’ Up! Friendly Hello stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Basic White. I colored the flowers with Fresh Freesia and Pale Papaya Stampin’ Blends. I stamped the leaves in Granny Apple Green and fussy cut the leaves and flowers. I adhered the flowers and leaves to the scalloped rectangle die cut panel with liquid glue.

I stamped the sentiment from the Sale-A-Bration Special Moments photopolymer stamp set in Basic Black on Fresh Freesia and cut it out with the Ornate Labels die. I adhered it to the card front and finished the card with a glittered Black Organdy bow.

I stamped the sentiment from the Special Moments stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black on a Basic White panel. I stamped the large flowers from the Stampin’ Up! Friendly Hello stamp set in the corners in Basic Black and the leaves in Granny Apple Green. I colored the flowers with Fresh Freesia and Pale Papaya Stampin Blends and adhered the panel to the inside of the card. I also stamped a Basic White envelope with the flowers and leaves and colored it with Stampin’ Blends to match the inside panel.

Stampin’ Up! Sentimental Swirls for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good morning and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! For today card, I used the sweet hello sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Sentimental Swirls photopolymer stamp set with the pretty Sale-A-Bration Daffodil Afternoon designer series paper to make my card for today. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

We have a color challenge this week that is perfect with the Sale-A-Bration Daffodil Afternoon DSP:

I cut a panel of floral Daffodil Afternoon designer series paper into thirds and adhered each strip to a Mossy Meadow mat with liquid glue. I did the sides first and then the middle, and had a little time to move things around to get them spaced evenly. I adhered a Pale Papaya panel of the Daffodil Afternoon DSP to the front of a Thick Very Vanilla card base with liquid glue and adhered the floral panel to the card front with dimensionals.

I stamped the pretty sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Sentimental Swirls stamp set in Mossy Meadow ink on a Pale Papaya panel and cut it out with the Messages die.

I folded a strip of Pale Papaya ribbon and adhered it to the back of the label with glue dots. I adhered the label to the card front with dimensionals and finished the card with three iridescent jewels.

For the inside, I adhered a panel of Very Vanilla card stock to another panel of Pale Papaya Daffodil Afternoon DSP and adhered them both to the inside of the card. This leaves plenty of room to write a personal message!

The Sale-A-Bration Daffodil Afternoon designer series paper is so pretty that it makes a wonderful card on it’s own. And it goes great with the sweet sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Sentimental Swirls stamp set (I love, love, love this font!). But Sale-A-Bration ends in a couple of weeks, so be sure to pick up yours soon!

Stampin’ Up! Special Moments Thank You Card

Good Morning! Today I am sharing a simple card made with a couple of the wonderful FREE Sale-A-Bration items – the Stampin’ Up! Special Moments stamp set and the pretty Daffodil Afternoon designer series paper. 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 the pretty Daffodil Afternoon designer series paper to a Flirty Flamingo mat and then wrapped the layered panel with Flirty Flamingo and gold ribbon. I secured it in the back with Stampin’ Seal.

I adhered the layered panel to the front of an Evening Evergreen card base with dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Special Moments photopolymer stamp set in Evening Evergreen on a Crushed Curry panel. I cut it out with the Tasteful Labels die and adhered it to the card front with dimensionals over the ribbon – make sure the dimensionals adhere to the DSP as well as the ribbon to keep it secure. I finished the card front with three iridescent jewels.

I kept the inside card simple, by just adhering a strip of the Daffodil Afternoon DSP to the bottom of a Very Vanilla Panel and adhering the panel to the inside of the card. This leaves plenty of room to write a personal message!

Pretty DSP is wonderful for making simple cards! Adding a few shiny embellishments such as ribbon or jewels really steps it up. And the Stampin’ Up! Special Moments stamp set is full of wonderful sentiments that are great for many different occasions with so many different and beautiful fonts. It’s already one of my favorite Sale-A-Bration items!

It consists of a pretty photopolymer stamp set along with a set of coordinating designer series paper! I used it to make today’s pretty Hello Friend card. You can find the currently available supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Friendly Hello stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a panel of Friendly Hello designer series paper in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and adhered it to the front of a Pool Party card base. I cut a panel of Friendly Hello DSP with the bird and flowers centered on the panel. I cut two Shaded Spruce strips with the Ornate Layers die and adhered them to the top and bottom back of the bird panel and adhered the bird panel to the stamped DSP panel. I adhered the layered DSP panel to the front of a Pool Party card base.

I stamped the bird and flowers from the Stampin’ Up! Friendly Hello stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a Basic White panel. I colored the bird in Pool Party and the flowers in Fresh Freesia, Petal Pink and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends. I fussy cut the bird and flowers with my Paper Snips and adhered them over the bird and flowers in the DSP.

I adhered faux pearls around the bird and made a bow with Pool Party ribbon and adhered it to the front with a glue dot.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment from the Flowers of Friendship stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the flowers and leaves from the Stampin’ Up! Friendly Hello stamp set in Fresh Freesia and Granny Apple Green on the top corner of the panel. I trimmed the bottom of the panel with a strip of the Friendly Hello DSP and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The coordinating images in the Stampin’ Up! Friendly Hello Sale-A-Bration bundle are sweet and the stamp set has some pretty sentiments. Here’s a picture of the stamp set with some of the pretty papers:

The colors in the pretty Stampin’ Up! Friendly Hello designer series paper are Basic Black, Fresh Freesia, Granny Apple Green, Petal Pink, Pool Party and Shaded Spruce. These colors are so soft and fresh and perfect for spring.

Stampin’ Up! Awesome Otters Sneak Peek for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good morning and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! For today card, I have a sneak peek of a cute little Sale-A-Bration cling stamp set that will be available on January 4, 2022 called Awesome Otters. And there’s also a cute 6″ x 6″ designer series paper pack that will also be available during Sale-A-Bration with pretty monochrome swirls called Simply Marbleous. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

We have a sketch this week for our Blog Hop – here is the pretty sketch we are using:

I adhered a panel of dotted Pattern Play designer series paper to a Basic White panel and then adhered them both to the front of a Pool Party card base. I stamped the otter from the Stampin’ Up! Awesome Otters stamp set on a panel of pool party Sale-A-Bration Simply Marbleous 6″ x 6″ designer series paper in Early Espresso ink and cut it out with the Layering Circles die. I cut a scalloped circle and adhered the stamped circle on top with liquid glue.

I stamped the Stampin’ Up! Awesome Otters otter stamp again in Early Espresso on a panel of Basic White. I colored it with Crumb Cake and Ivory Stampin’ Blends and colored the fish with Light Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blend. I fussy cut the fish and adhered it to the die cut circle with dimensionals. I adhered the layered circle to the card front with dimensionals, leaving room for the label.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Awesome Otters stamp set in Early Espresso ink on a Pool Party panel and cut it out with the Stitched So Sweetly die. I adhered it to the card front with glue dots, tucking it under the otter. I finished the card front with three Pool Party rhinestones.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the little otter from the Stampin’ Up! Awesome Otters stamp set in Early Espresso ink on a Basic White panel and colored it with Crumb Cake and Ivory Stampin’ Blends. I used the Pool Party Stampin’ Blends to color the water and adhered a strip of Simply Marbleous 6″ x 6″ DSP to the bottom and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

Both the Stampin’ Up! Awesome Otters cling stamp set and the Simply Marbleous 6″ x 6″ designer series paper will be available as FREE Sale-A-Bration items with $50 purchases (before shipping and taxes) beginning January 4, 2021. Here’s a picture of the stamp set and the DSP with today’s card:

Don’t you love those colorful swirls?

Stampin’ Up! Rainbow Of Happiness Sneak Peek

Good Morning! Today is the first day of the Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator pre-order for the upcoming January – June 2022 Mini Catalog and I am excited to share a sneak peek of a wonderful new bundle – the Stampin’ Up! Rainbow of Happiness bundle. This bundle will be available January 4, 2022 when the new catalog goes live. 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 Sunshine & Rainbows 6″ x 6″ designer series paper to a Basic White mat. The Sunshine & Rainbows 6″ x 6″ DSP coordinates with the Stampin’ Up! Rainbow Of Happiness bundle and will be available as a Sale-A-Bration item that is FREE with a $50 purchase starting January 4, 2022.

I used the rainbow border die from the Brilliant Rainbow dies in the new Stampin’ Up! Rainbow Of Happiness bundle to cut a border from a strip of Basic White and adhered it to the DSP panel. I cut a strip of Petal Pink ribbon and additional strips of the Sunshine & Rainbows DSP, punching some of them with the Banners Pick-A-Punch and adhered them to the panel.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Rainbow Of Happiness photopolymer stamp set in Bermuda Bay on a strip of Pool Party and punched the bottom with the Banners Pick-A-Punch. I cut the rainbow bands from Magenta Madness, So Saffron, Granny Apple Green and Bermuda bay and adhered them to the back of the sentiment with Stampin’ Seal – save the extra rainbow bands for future rainbows! I adhered the banner to the panel with dimensionals, cutting skinny strips to go behind the rainbow. I adhered the panel to the front of a Crushed Curry card base with dimensionals and finished the card with a white baker’s twine bow.

For the inside of the card, I cut some extra strips of the pretty Sunshine & Rainbows DSP and punched the bottoms with the Banners Pick-A-Punch. I adhered them to the top corner of a Basic White panel and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Rainbow Of Happiness stamp bundle is so sweet, with uplifting sentiments and fun rainbow stamps and dies. Here’s a picture of the Rainbow of Happiness photopolymer stamp set and and Brilliant Rainbow dies in the bundle:

And the coordinating Sunshine & Rainbows 6″ x 6″ DSP is so colorful and fun with 4 sheets each of 12 different double sided patterns! This will be a great Sale-A-Bration freebie starting January 4, 2022! Here are all the different patterns that it will contain:

Both the Stampin’ Up! Rainbow Of Happiness bundle and the Sale-A-Bration Sunshine & Rainbows 6″ x 6″ DSP will be available on January 4, 2022 when the new January – June Mini Catalog and Sale-A-Bration brochure go live. I can’t wait!!
