Stampin’ Up! Two-Tone Flora for the Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Good morning! Welcome to the January Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop! The theme for this month’s hop is “Love” and I used the cute Stampin’ Up! Two-Tone Flora bundle to make a CAS (Clean and Simple) Valentine! You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I stamped the large rose from the Stampin’ Up! Two-Tone Flora photopolymer stamp set in Polished Pink ink on Basic White. I stamped the detailed stamp first in full strength ink and then stamped the background stamp in stamped off ink. I cut it out with the coordinating die.

I stamped the double leaf stamp from the Stampin’ Up! Two-Tone Flora stamp set twice in Soft Succulent ink in the lower corner of a Basic White panel. I laid the die cut rose on the panel and stamped the sentiment from the Country Bouquet stamp set in Evening Evergreen ink to the side.

I adhered the stamped panel to an Evening Evergreen mat with liquid glue and adhered the die cut rose to the layered panel with dimensionals.

I adhered the panel to the front of a Thick Basic White card base with dimensionals. I finished the card with a Soft Succulent bow and three In Color Opal gems.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the the sentiment from the Country Bouquet stamp set in Evening Evergreen ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the open hearts next to the sentiment in Polished Pink ink and adhered the panel to an Evening Evergreen mat before adhering it to the inside of the card.

A simple pink rose from the pretty Stampin’ Up! Two-Tone Flora bundle to say I love you. Perfect for Valentine’s Day!

Stampin’ Up! Sweet Songbirds 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 “Celebrate!” and I used the cute Stampin’ Up! Sweet Songbirds bundle to share my Winter celebrations! 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 Pool Party card stock with the snowflakes in the Wintry 3D embossing folder and adhered it to a panel of Storybook Gnomes designer series paper. I adhered the layered panel to a Real Red mat and adhered it all to the front of a Pool Party card base with liquid glue. I cut a Basic White panel with the Scalloped Contours die and stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Sweet Songbirds cling stamp set in the corner using Soft Suede ink. I adhered it to the card front with dimensionals.

I cut the large branch die from the Decorated with Happiness bundle from Mossy Meadow and adhered it to the card with glue dots (including the lower branch on the DSP). I punched the bird from Real Red card stock with the Songbird Builder punch in the Stampin’ Up! Sweet Songbirds bundle and stamped the eyes in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I punched a beak from Crushed Curry and a breast from Basic White and adhered them to the bird with liquid glue, along with the little wing.

I cut the small pinecones from Crumb Cake and the small detailed pinecones from Soft Suede using the Christmas Pines dies and adhered them together. I adhered the pinecones to the card with glue dots and adhered the little bird with diensionals.

I made a bow from Linen Thread and adhered it to the card front with a glue dot. I finished the card front with Pool Party Fine Sparkle gems.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the little bird from the Stampin’ Up! Sweet Songbirds stamp set in Real Red on a Basic White panel. I stamped the eyes in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored the beak with the Crushed Curry Stampin’ Write marker. I made a mask to cover the bird and stamped the small pine branch from the Decorated with Happiness stamp set in Mossy Meadow around the bird and in the upper corner. I stamped the Sentiment in Soft Suede and trimmed the bottom with a strip of Storybook Gnomes DSP before adhering the panel to the inside of the card.

I’ve wanted to use the pretty Stampin’ Up! Sweet Songbirds bundle for a winter bird card since the weather got cold. And the pine branch from the Decorated Pine dies makes the perfect perch!

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! Scary Cute for the Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Good morning! Welcome to the September Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop! The theme for this month’s hop is “Halloween Fun” and I am using the wonderful Stampin’ Up! Scary Cute bundle for my Halloween Card. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I cut a fishtail bottom on a panel of Celebrate Everything designer series paper to make a banner and adhered it to the front of a Rich Razzleberry card base.

I used blending brushes to create the background for the haunted house. I applied Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, Rich Razzleberry and Night of Navy in layers building up the sky. I cut a mask for the hills and used it to cover the sky and applied Mossy Meadow ink with a blending brush to the bottom for the ground. I cut it out with the outline frame die from the Stampin’ Up! Scary Cute bundle. I cut out the haunted house from Basic Black and the moon from So Saffron and adhered them to the blended background die cut with liquid glue. I cut the frame from Basic Black and adhered it to the background with black dimensionals.

I adhered the little scene to the card front with liquid glue. I cut the bats from the Stampin’ Up! Scary Cute bundle from Basic Black and adhered three of them to the card front.

I wrapped the card front twice with black baker’s twine and made a bow. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Scary Cute cling stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Basic White and adhered it over the baker’s twine with black dimensionals.

For the inside of the card, I stamped little trick or treaters from the Stampin’ Up! Scary Cute stamp set in Rick Razzleberry ink on the bottom of a Basic White panel. I stamped the moon in Daffodil Delight and the sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black. I adhered the rest of the bats with liquid glue and trimmed the bottom with a strip of Celebrate Everything DSP. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Scary Cute bundle is such a cute and versatile Halloween set. The dies are wonderful, the trick or treater stamps are so cute in their costumes and the sentiments are perfect! They’re great for cards, tags and treat bag decorations.

Stampin’ Up! Season of Chic for the Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Good morning! Welcome to the August Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop! The theme for this month’s hop is “Fall Frenzy” and I am using the pretty Stampin’ Up! Season of Chic bundle with the sweet Sale-A-Bration Rings of Love designer series paper for a Fall Thinking of You 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 the pretty fall leaves Rings of Love designer series paper to a Poppy Parade mat with liquid glue and adhered it to the front of a Crushed Curry card base with dimensionals.

I inked up the leaf from the Stampin’ Up! Season of Chic photopolymer stamp set in Poppy Parade, stamped off on scratch paper and stamped it on a Basic White panel. I cut it out with the background leaf die from the Chic dies that come in the bundle and adhered a detailed Poppy Parade die cut leaf on top with liquid glue. I used the detailed leaf die to cut leaves from Soft Succulent and So Saffron and adhered all three leaves to the card front with glue dots.

I used the acorn and acorn cap dies from the Tree Rings Dies Hybrid Embossing folder set to cut the acorns from Crumb Cake and Soft Suede card stock and adhered them to the card front with glue dots.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Season of Chic stamp set in Soft Suede ink on Crushed Curry card stock. I cut it out with the die from the Painted Labels dies and adhered it to the card with dimensionals. I tied a short length of window pane check ribbon in a knot and adhered it with a glue dot. I finished the card with rustic metallic dots.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the leaves from the Stampin’ Up! Season of Chic Stamp set in stamped off Evening Evergreen and Crushed Curry in the corner of a Basic White panel. I trimmed the bottom with a strip of the pretty Rings of Love DSP before adhering it to the inside of the card.

The Sale-A-Bration Rings of Love designer series paper is so pretty with gorgeous colors and designs that go with so many stamp sets, such as today’s Stampin’ Up! Season of Chic. And you can get it free with a $50 order (before shipping and taxes) through the end of the month during Sale-A-Bration.

Stampin’ Up! Elephant Parade for the Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Good morning! Welcome to the June Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop! The theme for this month’s hop is “Happy Birthday” and I have a baby birthday card made with the sweet Stampin’ Up! Elephant Parade bundle from the new Annual Catalog. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I was also inspired by the pretty sketch in the Inspire.Create.Challenges #188:

I adhered a strip of Petal Pink floral Design A Daydream designer series paper to a Petal Pink mat and adhered it to another Petal Pink Design A Daydream DSP with liquid glue. I adhered the layered DSP to the front of a Petal Pink card base. I adhered a panel of leafy swirl Tea Boutique DSP to a Parakeet Party mat and adhered it to the card front with liquid glue.

I cut a Petal Pink panel with the second largest scalloped circle from the Layering Circles dies and stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Elephant Parade cling stamp set in Garden Green on a Basic White panel. I cut it out with the second largest circle from the Stylish Shapes dies and I adhered the circles together with liquid glue.

I cut grass from Parakeet Party using the grass dies from the Elephant dies and adhered them to the layered circles. I stamped the sweet elephant from the Stampin’ Up! Elephant Parade stamp set on Basic White using Basic Gray ink and colored it with Petal Pink and Gray Granite Stampin’ Blends. I cut it out with the coordinating die and popped it on the layered circles with dimensionals.

I stamped the flower from the Stampin’ Up! Elephant Parade stamp set in Basic Gray ink and colored it with Tahitian Tide and Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends. I cut it out with the coordinating die and adhered it under the elephant’s trunk. I cut a Petal Pink bow and adhered it to the elephant’s head and adhered the layered circles to the card front with dimensionals. I finished it with three In Color matte dots.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiments from the A Grand Kid cling stamp set in Basic Gray on a Basic White panel. I stamped the balloons from the Stampin’ Up! Elephant Parade stamp set in Basic Gray on the side of the panel in Basic Gray and colored them with Petal Pink, Parakeet Party and Tahitian Tide Stampin’ Blends before adhering it to the inside of the card.

The elephants in the Stampin’ Up! Elephant Parade bundle are so cute and sweet!! They’re perfect for children’s cards and for any occasion where you want a cute critter to send your message!

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!
