Stampin’ Up! Your Biggest Fan for the Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Good morning! Welcome to the May Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop! The theme for this month’s hop is “For the Men/Boys” so I made a Father’s Day card with the Stampin’ Up! Your Biggest Fan bundle and the fun Hey Sports Fan designer series paper. The Sports Event dies in the bundle can be used to cut out some of the images in the DSP, so can have fun mixing and matching the images in the stamp set and the DSP. 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 balls and bats Hey Sports Fan designer series paper to the front of an Evening Evergreen card base with liquid glue. I adhered a strip of the baseball field DSP across the card front.

I cut a panel of Night of Navy wood grain Hey Sports Fan DSP with the large ticket die from the Stampin’ Up! Your Biggest Fan bundle and adhered it to the card front with liquid glue. I cut a Poppy Parade strip of the DSP with the small ticket strip die and adhered it with glue dots.

I stamped the double ticket stamp from the Stampin’ Up! Your Biggest Fan photopolymer stamp set with in Poppy Parade on Vary Vanilla. I stamped the Most Valuable Dad sentiment in Night of Navy and the Happy Father’s Day sentiment in Evening Evergreen.

I cut out the stamped image with the coordinating die and adhered it to the card front with glue dots. I finished with resin stars and a Poppy Parade striped baker’s twine bow.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Your Biggest Fan stamp set in Poppy Parade on a Very Vanilla panel. I stamped Night of Navy stars and trimmed the bottom with a strip of baseball field DSP. I cut a Best Day Ever ticket from the Hey Sports Fan DSP and adhered it to the bottom of the panel and adhered it to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Your Biggest Fan bundle is perfect for masculine cards for the sports enthusiast, especially the baseball fan. And watching a Sunday afternoon baseball game is a perfect way to spend Father’s Day!

Stampin’ Up! Flowing Flowers Mother’s Day Card for the Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Good morning! Welcome to the April Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop! The theme for this month’s hop is “For the Ladies/Girls” so I made a Mother’s Day card with the pretty flowers from the Stampin’ Up! Flowing Flowers cling stamp set and the sentiments from the retiring Timeless Tulips photopolymer stamp set! You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I embossed a panel of Pale Papaya shimmer vellum with the Pretty Flowers embossing folder and adhered it to the front of a Thick Basic White card Base. I applied liquid glue just to the middle section that would be covered by the scalloped rectangle.

I cut a panel of Basic White with the largest scalloped rectangle from the retiring Stitched So Sweetly dies. I stamped the smallest flower cluster from the Stampin’ Up! Flowing Flowers stamp set three times in Pale Papaya in the lower corner of the scalloped rectangle. I stamped the largest flower in Polished Pink on a Basic White panel and fussy cut it out.

I used the new In Color Parakeet Party (available May 3) to stamp the leaves from the medium flower in the Stampin’ Up! Flowing Flowers stamp set twice on Basic White. I fussy cut the leaves and adhered them to the scalloped rectangle. I adhered the fussy cut flower over the leaves with dimensionals and adhered the panel to the card front with liquid glue. I tucked a white crinkle ribbon bow under the flower, adhering it with a glue dot.

I stamped the pretty Mother’s day sentiment from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Polished Pink on Basic White and cut it out with the smallest scalloped rectangle from the Stitched So Sweetly dies. I adhered it to the card front with glue dots and dimensionals and finished the card front with iridescent rhinestones – the glints of pink and yellow are perfect with this card!

For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Polished Pink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the medium flower from the Stampin’ Up! Flowing Flowers stamp set in Pale Papaya in the corner of the panel and adhered the panel to a Pale Papaya mat. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The sentiments from the retiring Timeless Tulips stamp set are so sweet and pretty and the retiring Stitched So Sweetly dies are pretty as well. I have used them a lot, so check them out before they’re gone for good!

Stampin’ Up! Flowering Tulips for the Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Good morning! Welcome to the March Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop! The theme for this month’s hop is “Celebrate Spring” and I used the Stampin’ Up! Flowering Tulips bundle to make a colorful card with a Highland Heather Spring tulip! You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I cut two panels of the Flowering Fields designer series paper and adhered them to Pear Pizzazz mats. I adhered the polka dot panel to the front of a Mango Melody card base with liquid glue and the tulip field panel on top with dimensionals.

I cut three flowers from a Highland Heather panel of the Flowering Fields designer series paper using the Tulips dies from the Stampin’ Up! Flowering Tulips bundle. I adhered the die cuts with dimensionals and glue dots to make the pretty 3D tulip flower and adhered the flower to the card front with glue dots. I used the leaves and small stem dies to cut a Pear Pizzazz panel of the Flowering Fields DSP and adhered them to the card with glue dots and dimensionals. I tied a knot in a length of Highland Heather ribbon and adhered it to the stem with a glue dot.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Flowering Tulips photopolymer stamp set in Poppy Parade on a Basic White panel. I cut it out with the Stitched So Sweetly die and adhered it to the cards with glue dots. I finished the label with a Highland Heather pearl.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the tulip from the Stampin’ Up! Flowering Tulips stamp set in Highland Heather on the side of a Basic White panel. I inked up the accent flower stamp and stamped it off before stamping over the tulip to give it dimension. I stamped the leaf and stem in Pear Pizzazz and adhered a strip of DSP to the bottom before adhering the panel to the inside of the card.

I love the dimensional tulips that the Stampin’ Up! Flowering Tulips bundle makes. There are three styles, and I need to use them all. I also think the stamped tulips and sentiments are great too! It’s good that I’m ready for Spring tulips!!

Stampin’ Up! All Squared Away for the Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Good morning! Welcome to the February Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop! The theme for this month’s hop is “Birthday” and I used the Stampin’ Up! All Squared Away bundle to make a colorful floral Birthday 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 striped Pattern Party Host special designer series paper to a Granny Apple Green mat with liquid glue and wrapped it with white crinkle ribbon and made a bow on the side. I adhered it to the front of a Flirty Flamingo card base with dimensionals.

I cut a small Flirty Flamingo panel with the two flower dies from the Floral Squares dies that come in the Stampin’ Up! All Squared Away bundle. I cut a small Granny Apple Green Panel with the square die and adhered the two Flirty Flamingo floral die cuts to the square die cut to make the pink flowers on green stems.

I cut small slivers of dimensionals to put around the Granny Apple Green die cut frame and behind the flowers and leaves and adhered the die cut to the card front. I finished the card with three Pool Party iridescent sequins.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! All Squared Away stamp set in Granny Apple Green on a Basic White panel. I cut the small flowers from Bumblebee and adhered them next to the sentiment and trimmed the bottom of the panel with a strip of the striped Pattern Party DSP. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card with Stampin’ Seal.

The Stampin’ Up! All Squared Away bundle is really sweet with the graphic floral die cuts, and so easy to use. I didn’t used the background stamps, but they would be awesome to add additional texture when stamped on the die cuts or as a background for the die cuts. And popping these cute little squares on dimensionals makes any card special!

Stampin’ Up! Eden’s Garden for the Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Good morning! Welcome to the December Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop! The theme for this month’s hop is “Celebrate” and I used the Stampin’ Up! Eden’s Garden bundle for my card. This bundle is an early release from the January-June 2022 Mini Catalog that will go live on January 4, 2022, but you can purchase this pretty bundle now! You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I embossed a panel of the pretty Ombre Ever Eden specialty designer series paper with the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing folder and adhered it to the front of an Evening Evergreen card base.

I stamped the large greenery from the Stampin’ Up! Eden’s Garden cling stamp set on a Basic White panel using Soft Succulent ink. I stamped the little leaf and berry sprig stamp in soft succulent across the top. I cut the bottom of the Evening Evergreen panel with the border die from the Eden dies and adhered the stamped panel to the top. I trimmed the excess Evening Evergreen from the top with my paper snips so that the edges would line up and wrapped the layered panel with Soft Succulent ribbon, making a bow. I adhered the panel to the card front with dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Eden’s Garden stamp set in Versamark ink on Evening Evergreen. I sprinkled it with white embossing powder and shook off the excess. I heated it with my heat tool until it was shiny. I trimmed the sentiment with my paper snips and adhered it to the card front with glue dots. I added some iridescent rhinestones (available in the new January – June 2022 Mini Catalog on January 4) to finish off the greenery.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the the leaf and berry sprig across the top of a Basic White panel in Soft Succulent ink. I stamped the larger leaf cluster a couple of times in the bottom corner and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Eden’s Garden and Ever Eden specialty designer series paper are available now as part of the Eden’s Garden special Early Release and will be featured in the new Jan-Jun 2022 Mini Catalog. The Ever Eden specialty designer series paper is only available until January 3, 2022, or while supplies last.

Stampin’ Up! Sweet Little Stockings 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 “Christmas” and I’m using the Stampin’ Up! Sweet Little Stockings bundle to make my Christmas Card. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

My card was also inspired by the sketch challenge in Try Stampin’ On Tuesday Challenge #531:

I cut a Bumblebee panel with the long simple lacy border from the Ornate Layers dies and adhered a panel of Sweet Stockings designer series paper across the center. I adhered it to a panel of Sweet Stockings designer series paper and then adhered it to an Evening Evergreen mat. I popped the layered DSP panel to the front of a Cherry Cobbler card base. I die cut another circle of Sweet Stockings DSP and adhered it to the card front.

I stamped the kitty from the Stampin’ Up! Sweet Little Stockings photopolymer stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black on Basic White. I colored it with Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends and cut it out with the coordinating die. I stamped the Santa’s hat and candy cane in Memento Tuxedo Black, colored them with Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends and cut them out with the coordinating dies. I stamped the sentiment in Cherry Cobbler and cut it out with the little label die. And finally, I cut one of the cute stockings from the Sweet Stockings DSP with the Stockings die. I adhered the cat, hat and stocking together with liquid glue and popped them on the card front with dimensionals. I tucked the candy cane and label under the stocking and adhered them with glue dots.

I cut the bow from Bumblebee, the holly leaves from Old Olive and the holly berries from Cherry Cobbler using the Stockings dies and adhered these to the stocking with liquid glue. I finished the stocking with a bumblebee Decorative Matte Dot on the bow.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Sweet Little Stockings stamp set in Cherry Cobbler on a Basic White panel. I fussy cut some of the other cute critter images from the Sweet Stockings DSP and adhered them to the panel with liquid glue and trimmed the bottom with a strip of the DSP. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Sweet Little Stockings bundle and the Sweet Stockings designer series paper are perfect for making Christmas cards for pet loving friends and relatives! The images are so cute, colorful and full of mischievous fun and joy.

Stampin’ Up! Gorgeous Leaves for the Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Good morning! Welcome to the Inkin’ Krew Monthly Blog Hop! The theme for this month’s hop is “Giving Thanks” and I’m using the Stampin’ Up! Gorgeous Leaves bundle to make a Thanksgiving card. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I embossed a panel of Very Vanilla with the Timber 3D embossing folder and adhered it to a Merry Merlot mat with liquid glue. I adhered the embossed pane to the front of a Merry Merlot card base with dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment from the Sparkle of the Season photopolymer stamp set in Early Espresso on Very Vanilla and cut it out with the label die from the Tasteful Labels dies. I cut the larger label from Merry Merlot and adhered them together with liquid glue.

I stamped the leaves from the Stampin’ Up! Gorgeous Leaves cling stamp set in Daffodil Delight, Cajun Craze and Cinnamon cider and cut them out with the coordinating dies. I used the Intricate Leaves dies from the bundle to cut out the remaining detailed leaves from Crumb Cake, Soft Succulent and Pear Pizzazz card stock and arranged them cascading down the side of the card.

I adhered the leaves to the card front with liquid glue, and adhered the layered label over the leaves with dimensionals. I made a triple bow with linen thread and adhered it under the label with a glue dot. I finished the card front with three brushed copper metallic dots.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the leaves from the Stampin’ Up! Gorgeous Leaves stamp set around the bottom and top of a Very Vanilla panel in Daffodil Delight, Cajun Craze and Cinnamon Cider. I stamped the sentiment from the Sparkle of the Season stamp set in Early Espresso next to the leaves and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

Every card I see made with the Stampin’ Up! Gorgeous Leaves bundle is beautiful, and the bundle is really easy to play with! There are no sentiments, but the combination of the artistic stamps and detailed dies is perfect for creating all kinds of fall masterpieces!

Stampin’ Up! Cutest Halloween for the Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Good morning! Welcome to the Inkin’ Krew Monthly Blog Hop! The theme for this month’s hop is “Halloween Fun” and I’m using the Stampin’ Up! Cutest Halloween bundle for my card today. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I cut the top front off of the card base by cutting down the score line 1-3/4″ and cutting straight across the top with my paper trimmer. This left the bottom 2-1/2″ on the card front. I adhered a panel of Old Olive haunted house Cute Halloween 6″ x 6″ designer series paper to the inside of the card.

I adhered a panel of the ‘boo’ Cute Halloween 6″ x 6″ DSP to the inside front flap and I colored the candy panel for the outside front flap. I colored the candies with the Bronze, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, Highland Heather and Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends and then adhered the panel to the front flap. I stamped six Jack-O-Lanterns using the Stampin’ Up! Cutest Halloween photopolymer stamp set – I stamped the outlines in Memento Tuxedo Black, the solid pumpkins in Pumpkin Pie and the Jack-O-Lantern faces in Memento Tuxedo Black. I colored the stems with the Granny Apple Green Stampin Blend and punched the Jack-O-Lanterns out with Halloween Punch.

I adhered the Jack-O-Lanterns across the top of the front flap with glue dots and dimensionals (the one in the middle and the two ends). I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Cutest Halloween stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black on Old Olive and cut it out with the Messages die. I adhered it to the card front with glue dots.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Cutest Halloween in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the little spider in the corner and adhered the panel to the bottom of the inside of the card. I adhered the last Jack-O-Lantern to the front flap next to the inside panel. I stamped the little ghost outline in Smoky Slate on Basic White and the face and arms in stamped off Highland Heather. I punched out the ghost with the Halloween Punch and adhered it to the top of the inside with dimensionals. I finished the card with iridescent stars.

I also used the Stampin’ Up! Cutest Halloween bundle to decorate a little Halloween treat box made with the Pretty Pillowbox dies. It’s so cute and really puts me in the trick-or-treatin’ mood!

Stampin’ Up! Pretty Pumpkins for the Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Good morning! Welcome to the Inkin’ Krew Monthly Blog Hop! The theme for this month’s hop is “Fall Frenzy” and I’m seeing so many pumpkin decor items around so I decided to use the beautiful Stampin’ Up! Pretty Pumpkins bundle for my card today. 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 Beauty of the Earth designer series paper to the front of a Cajun Craze card base. I made a horizontal stripe by layering strips of Cork, Harvest Meadow designer series paper, Cajun Craze and Granny Apple Green card stock and adhering it to the card front.

I stamped the pumpkins from the Stampin’ Up! Pretty Pumpkins cling stamp set in Early Espresso on Basic White and cut them out with the coordinating die. I colored them with Pumpkin Pie, Granny Apple Green and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends and adhered them to the stripe with dimensionals and glue dots.

I stamped the sentiment from the Forever Greenery stamp set in Early Espresso on a Crumb Cake panel and cut it out with the small Tailor Made Tags die. I cut another tag from the Beauty of the Earth designer series paper and adhered it to the back of the Crumb Cake label. I colored a length of white baker’s twine with Cajun Craze Stampin’ Blend and cut a length of Crumb Cake twine. I slipped the twine through the holes in the tags and tied a bow. I adhered the tag to the card front with glue dots and finished the card front with five green Decorative Matte Dots.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Pretty Pumpkins stamp set in Early Espresso ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the pumpkin vines on the bottom and colored them with Granny Apple Green, Ole Olive and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends. I adhered a strip of Beauty of the Earth DSP to the bottom of the panel and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

This is my first fall card of the year and it was hard to resist coloring these pumpkins with Stampin’ Blends. But the Stampin’ Up! Pretty Pumpkins bundle has other cute pumpkin images, wonderful sentiments and gorgeous artsy pumpkin dies that will be loads of fun to play with – such a versatile set.

Stampin’ Up! Hydrangea Haven for the Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Good morning! Welcome to the Inkin’ Krew Monthly Blog Hop! The theme for this month’s hop is “Celebrate Summer” and since I love flowers that bloom in the summer, I decided to use the beautiful Stampin’ Up! Hydrangea Haven bundle for my card today. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I cut out the large scalloped rectangle from the Scalloped Contours dies from Basic White and the second largest from Fresh Freesia. I adhered a panel of Fresh Freesia gingham from the Pansy Petals designer series paper to the Fresh Freesia scalloped die cut with liquid and then adhered them both to the Basic White die cut. I popped them onto the front of a Fresh Freesia card base.

I stamped the outline hydrangea from the Stampin’ Up! Hydrangea Haven stamp set in Basic Gray on a Basic White panel. I stamped the filler stem and leaves in Garden Green and the filler flower with Fresh Freesia. I cut out the flower with the coordinating die. I used the dark Fresh Freesia Stampin’ Blend to color the background to the flower, adding dimension and then I covered the flower with clear Wink of Stella for a touch of sparkle. I adhered the flower to the card front with dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Hydrangea Haven stamp set in Basic Gray on a Fresh Freesia panel. I cut it out with the little tag die and looped white crinkle ribbon through the loop and tied a bow. I trimmed the ends of the bow and popped the tag on the card front with dimensionals. I finished the card front with 5 clear elegant gems.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the little outline flowers from the Stampin’ Up! Hydrangea Haven stamp set in Basic Gray around the two corners. I used the filler stamp to add Fresh Freesia and then added some depth with the dark Fresh Freesia Stampin’ Blend. I stamped the sweet sentiment in Basic Gray and trimmed the bottom with the gingham from Pansy Petals DSP. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card with Stampin’ Seal.

I’m so glad that the Stampin’ Up! Hydrangea Haven bundle was carried over in the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog with the 10% savings. It’s such a pretty set and doesn’t the flower look great in Fresh Freesia? There are so many colors of hydrangea in bloom these days and and it makes the landscape so pretty!
