Stampin’ Up! Heron Habitat for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good morning and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! I’m using the beautiful Stampin’ Up! Heron Habitat bundle to make a Good Day note card. 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’s the pretty sketch we are using:

I adhered a panel of Design a Daydream designer series paper to the front of a Mint Macaron card base with liquid glue. I embossed a panel of Crumb Cake with the Fern 3D embossing folder.

I stamped the water from the Stampin’ Up! Heron Habitat cling stamp set in Pool Party on a Basic White panel and used the light Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blend to color the grass. I applied Pear Pizzazz ink to the bottom and Pool Party ink to the top of the panel with Blending Brushes. I stamped the cattails and birds in Soft Suede. I adhered the panel to the embossed Crumb Cake panel and adhered the layered panels to the card front with liquid glue.

I cut the grass dies from the Heron dies and adhered all but two of the small grasses with liquid glue. I stamped the standing heron from the Stampin’ Up! Heron Habitat stamp set in Soft Suede ink on Basic White and cut it out with the coordinating die. I adhered it to the card front with pieces of dimensionals and adhered the last two grasses with dimensionals next to the bird. I stamped the sentiment in Pear Pizzazz on Basic White and used the small label die to cut it out. I made a loopy bow from linen thread and adhered it to the back of the label with a glue dot before adhering it to the card front with dimensionals. I finished the label with a rustic metallic dot.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the cattails and birds from the Stampin’ Up! Heron Habitat stamp set in Soft Suede ink on Basic White. I trimmed the bottom with a strip of Design a Daydream DSP and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

I love the way the stamped cattails and water look with the die cut grasses in the Stampin’ Up! Heron Habitat bundle. And the label dies in the set are so cute with the heart cutouts!

Stampin’ Up! Season Of Chic Thinking of You Card

Good Morning! The new Texture Chic Suite in the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog is so beautiful and unique. It has the Stampin’ Up! Season of Chic bundle with an eclectic set of stamps and dies with sea shell, flower, leaf and snowflake motifs along with different spatter and brushstroke stamps that encourages creativity. It also has the beautiful Texture Chic specialty designer series paper with touches of gold foil and the gorgeous Distressed Gold specialty paper. I used all three for today’s shell motif thinking of you card and 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 Texture Chic specialty designer series paper to a Gray Granite mat. I used a blending brushes to apply Gray Granite ink and Petal Pink ink to two spots on a Basic White panel. I stamped the shell from the Stampin’ Up! Season of Chic photopolymer stamp set to stamp over the blended spots, using Petal Pink over the Gray Granite spot and Mango Melody over the Petal Pink spot. I cut the shells out with the coordinating die.

I stamped another Pink shell on plain Basic White and cut it out with the coordinating die and cut a panel of Distressed Gold specialty paper with the large detailed shell die. I adhered the gold shell to the Petal Pink stamped shell with liquid glue. I die cut the two small detailed shells from Petal Pink card stock and traced the long shell outline on a Basic White scrap. I used a blending Brush to apply Petal Pink ink to the shell and stamped over it with the spatter stamp from the Stampin’ Up! Season of Chic stamp set and Mango Melody ink. I fussy cut the shell and adhered it to the back of my die cut Petal Pink shell.

I cut a vellum panel with the screen die from the Chic dies and colored the back with Gray Granite and Light Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends. I adhered the screen to the DSP panel with Stampin’ Seal across the middle and along the side. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Season of Chic stamp set in Gray Granite ink on Basic White and cut it out with the Stylish Shapes banner die. I adhered some gold shimmer ribbon to the DSP panel with Stampin’ Seal and adhered the label on top with glue dots. I used glue dots to adhere the two smaller shells and the plain larger shells. I adhered the layered distress gold shell with dimensionals and adhered the DSP panel to the front of a Petal Pink card base with dimensionals. I finished the card front with Polished Dots.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the shell from the Stampin’ Up! Season of Chic stamp set in Petal Pink and Gray Granite in the corners of a Basic White panel. I stamped the Spatter in Mango Melody and trimmed the bottom with a strip of Texture Chic specialty DSP. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card with Stampin’ Seal.

Here in the Northeast, it’s a big beach weekend with gorgeous weather, so the shells in the Stampin’ Up! Season of Chic stamp set make a perfect card for the times. The light woodgrain DSP with the shells make the perfect background for a sun bleached look. This was a fun card to make and I hope it inspires you for summertime fun.

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

Good morning and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! The Stampin’ Up! Celebrating You cling stamp set is a sentiments only stamp set that has a pretty set of fonts and covers lots of special occasions. I need a graduation card for a friend’s son who enjoys the outdoors, both winter and summer, so I pulled out the On The Horizon 6″ x 6″ designer series paper and Horizon dies to create an outdoors scene. You can find the 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 pretty sketch we are using:

I embossed a Soft Succulent panel with the Timber 3D embossing folder and adhered it to the front of a Soft Succulent card base. I wanted to use the mountains in the Horizon dies, so I cut a 1″ strip of purple New Horizons 6″ x 6″ DSP for the background mountain and a 1″ strip of whitish DSP for the snow detail. I wanted to use the curvy ground die in green, so I cut a 1″ strip of green DSP for the ground. Once I had my strips for these elements, I used them to select the background panel that coordinated with the strips I chose.

I cut the background panel with the third largest Stitched Rectangle Die. I cut the purple strip with the mountain background die and the whitish strip with the detailed mountain die. I adhered the whitish die cut to the purple die cut so that it looks like a snowy mountain. I cut the green strip with the curvy ground die and adhered the layered mountain and ground die cuts to the background. I stamped the birds from the On the Horizon cling stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black and adhered the die cut panel to a Basic Gray mat.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! On Celebrating You stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black on Smoky Slate and cut it out with the small long skinny stitched rectangle die. I cut a Basic Gray panel with the same die and adhered it to the back of the label with glue dots. I looped Evening Evergreen Baker’s twine three times around the scene and tied a bow. I adhered the labels to the scene with dimensionals and popped the scene on the card front with dimensionals. I finished the label with two rustic metallic dots.

For the inside, I cut a 3/4″ strip of the background DSP and cut a bit more of the mountain, ground and snow die cuts using the leftovers from the card front. I adhered them to the background strip and stamped some birds over the mountain. I trimmed the excess with my paper snips and adhered the strip to a Basic White panel. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Celebrating You stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

It was so fun to play with the On The Horizon bundle for mountain card and it goes perfectly with the Stampin’ Up! Celebrating You stamp set for graduating Senior!

Stampin’ Up! On The Horizon for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good morning and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! The Stampin’ Up! On the Horizon bundle and the New Horizons 6″ x 6″ designer series paper are some of the prettiest items in the current Mini Catalog. One of the biggest reasons is that when you combine the pretty watercolor design paper with the unique stamps and dies, it’s so easy to make beautiful cards featuring natural landscapes. And these products work great with other stamp sets, so I combined them with the trees from the Grassy Grove bundle for today’s card. 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 about creating a scene, so of course I selected the Stampin’ Up! On the Horizon bundle to make my card:

I embossed a Basic White panel with the Timeworn Text 3D embossing folder and adhered it to the front of a Basic White card base with liquid glue. I selected my panel of New Horizons 6″ x 6″ designer series paper and cut 1″ off the bottom and 1-1/2″ off the top. Then I cut 1-1/2″ off the side. I saved the bottom and side panels to use for this card.

I cut the remaining DSP panel with the 3rd largest Stitched Rectangles die. I stamped the trees from the Stampin’ Up! On The Horizon cling stamp set in Evening Evergreen ink on the side of the die cut panel and the grass in Evening Evergreen across the bottom. I stamped the birds in Basic Gray in the sky and adhered the panel to an Evening Evergreen mat. I popped the panel on the card front with dimensionals.

I stamped the trees from the Grassy Grove photopolymer stamp set in Garden Green on the small panel of New Horizons 6″ x 6″ DSP that I put aside and cut it out with the coordinating die. I cut a panel of Evening Evergreen with the same die and adhered it to the back of the stamped trees to make it stiffer. I adhered the trees to the card front with dimensionals so that the horizon in the trees almost lined up with the background.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! On The Horizon stamp set in Versamark ink on Evening Evergreen. I sprinkled it with white embossing powder, shook off the excess and heated it with my heat tool until the powder was shiny. I cut the sentiment with the long label die from the Harvest dies so that the side was straight. I adhered the label to the card front with glue dots and finished the card front with pebble enamel shapes.

For the inside, I stamped the the trees from the Grassy Grove stamp set in Garden Green on the side of a Basic White panel. I stamped the grass from the Stampin’ Up! On The Horizon stamp set in Evening Evergreen ink on the other side. I used the grass die from the Horizon Dies to cut the 1″ wide strip of New Horizons DSP and stamped it with the grass stamp using Evening Evergreen. I adhered it to the inside panel with liquid glue and adhered the inside panel to an Evening Evergreen mat. I adhered the layered panel to the inside of the card.

So simple and so different! The Stampin’ Up! On the Horizon bundle is perfect when paired with the New Horizons 6″ x 6″ DSP for making landscapes – an easy way to feel like an artist!

Stampin’ Up! Grassy Grove Card

Good Morning! The Stampin’ Up! Grassy Grove bundle is a fun bundle with a wonderful woodsy frame die cut and pretty scenic stamps. I paired it with the pretty Beauty of the Earth designer series paper to make this little wooded scene inspirational 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 Pear Pizzazz card stock to the back of a greenery panel of Beauty of the Earth DSP with liquid glue and cut it out with the left side of the wooded frame die cut from the Stampin’ Up! Grassy Grove Bundle. I wanted to pop up the die cut frame with dimensionals and needed a double layer to make it stiffer.

I stamped the long ground stamp with shrubs from the Stampin’ Up! Grassy Grove cling stamp set in Mossy Meadow on a blue sky panel of the Beauty of the Earth DSP. I sponged Cinnamon Cider ink on the ground with a sponge dauber, and it nicely covered the blue sky, so my ground looked realistic. I stamped the deer in Crumb Cake on Basic White and fussy cut it out. There is a die that works nicely, but I didn’t want the white edge for such a small focal piece. I adhered the deer to the stamped panel with liquid glue and adhered the die cut wooded frame with dimensionals. I adhered the layered panel to an Early Espresso mat.

I adhered a strip of wood grained Beauty of the Earth DSP to the front of a Crumb Cake card base and adhered the little scene with liquid glue. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Grassy Grove stamp set in Mossy Meadow on Pear Pizzazz and cut it out with the Messages die. I adhered the label to the frame with glue dots and finished the card front with adhesive pebbles.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the trees from the Stampin’ Up! Grassy Grove stamp set in Mossy Meadow on a Basic White panel. I trimmed the bottom of the panel with a strip of wood grained Beauty of the Earth DSP and adhered it to the inside of the card.

The wooded frame die from the Stampin’ Up! Grassy Grove bundle is so neat! But the other scenic stamps are also pretty and the sentiments are sweet. And it goes beautifully with the Beauty of the Earth DSP! The different prints give your project texture and interest and are perfect for the natural woods theme of the bundle!

Stampin’ Up! Waves Of Inspiration Birthday Card

Good Morning! The Stampin’ Up! Waves Of Inspiration bundle is an early release from the upcoming 2022-2023 Annual Catalog and boy is is gorgeous! I made this simple birthday card to introduce you to the bundle and you can check out all the details of the promotion because this bundle is available today! You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I used sponge daubers to apply Pacific Point and Night of Navy inks to the large wave stamp in the Stampin’ Up! Waves Of Inspiration cling stamp set. I applied Pacific Point to the entire stamp and Night of Navy to the bottom and stamped the image on a Basic White panel. I used sponge daubers to apply additional ink to the wave, Bermuda Bay to the top part of the wave, blending into Pacific Point and Night of Navy towards the bottom.

I used another sponge dauber to lightly ink the sky with Balmy Blue ink. I stamped the bird from the Stampin’ Up! Waves of Inspiration stamp set in Basic Gray three times in the sky. I adhered the panel to a Night of Navy mat. I cut the clouds from Basic White using the Waves Dies and adhered them to the panel with dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Waves Of Inspiration stamp set in Night of Navy on a strip of Balmy Blue and cut it out with the label from the Waves Dies. I looped Linen thread through the ends of the label and adhered the label to the card front with dimensionals. I pulled the linen thread around to the back of the card and secured the ends in the back with tape. I accented the label with a rhinestone and adhered the panel to the front of a Balmy Blue card base with dimensionals.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the wave again in Pacific Point on a Basic White strip. I used sponge daubers to apply Bermuda Bay and Night of Navy inks to the strip so that it would resemble the ocean on the front of the card. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Waves Of Inspiration stamp set in Night of Navy ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the bird in Basic Gray and adhered the ocean strip to the bottom. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

This is just a simple example of using the pretty Stampin’ Up! Waves Of Inspiration bundle for a birthday card. Be on the lookout for more cards made with this gorgeous bundle and the other exclusive items in the Waves of the Ocean Collection.

Stampin’ Up! Oceanfront Happy Day Card

Good Morning! The Stampin’ Up! Oceanfront stamp set is another one of the photopolymer watercolor stamp sets that create wonderful landscapes. This one has some angled stamps that are wonderful for shore scenes. There are no sentiments in the set, so I used the Many Messages cling stamp and Messages die for my sentiment – the scene is perfect for a smaller sentiment. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I adhered three strips of In Good Taste rustic wood grained designer series paper to the front of a Coastal Cabana card base. I embossed a panel of Soft Suede with the Macrame embossing folder and adhered it to the card front.

I stamped the angled ocean stamp from the Stampin’ Up! Oceanfront stamp set in Pacific Point on a Basic White panel. I stamped the sky stamp from the stamp set in Balmy Blue on top of the ocean and the angled shoreline in Sahara Sand under the ocean. I stamped the spatter in Sahara Sand over the sand and I stamped the sea oats in Soft Suede. Finally, I stamped the birds from the Mountain Air photopolymer stamp set in Basic Gray in the sky. I adhered the panel to a Pacific Point mat and wrapped a length of linen thread around the panel and made a bow.

I popped the stamped panel onto the card front with dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment from the Many Messages stamp set in Soft Suede on Balmy Blue card stock and cut it out with the Messages die. I adhered it to the card front with dimensionals over the linen thread.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the sea oats from the Stampin’ Up! Oceanfront stamp set in Soft Suede on a Basic White panel. I adhered another strip of In Good Taste DSP to the bottom and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Oceanfront stamp set is fun for making artistic ocean landscapes. And I love the little sentiment from the Many Messages stamp because any day by the shore is a happy day!

Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern Hello Card

Good Morning! The Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern stamp set and the coordinating Forever Flourishing dies are some of the prettiest leaf sets with the beautiful Distinktive stamps, gorgeous sentiments and wonderfully detailed dies. And they go beautifully with the special Ever Eden specialty designer series paper that is available now as part of the Eden’s Garden Collection. So I paired these products for a simple hello card for 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 Ever Eden specialty designer series paper to the front of an Evening Evergreen card base with liquid glue. I cut two of the pretty Eden dies border from Brushed Gold foil and adhered them to the back of another panel of Ever Eden specialty DSP before adhering it to the card front.

I cut the large fern from the Forever Flourishing dies using Soft Succulent cotton paper and adhered it to the card front with liquid glue. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern cling stamp set in Versamark ink and sprinkled it with gold embossing powder. I shook off the excess and heat set the powder with my heat tool. I cut the sentiment out with the Messages die.

I adhered the label to the card front with dimensionals and decorated it with the beautiful Garden Gems and adhered a gold trim bow to the bottom of the fern stem with a glue dot.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the leaf clusters from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern stamp set in Evening Evergreen and Soft Succulent on the bottom corner of a Basic White panel I adhered a strip of Ever Eden specialty DSP to the bottom and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

Don’t you think the Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern stamp set goes well with the pretty Ever Eden specialty DSP? You have similar shading in the stamped images and gentle flowing movement in the leaf sprigs – I think they’re wonderful together! And the touches of gold are so elegant! So be sure to check it out!

Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Harvest Thank You Card

Good Morning! The Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Harvest is one of my favorites from the current July – December Mini Catalog, so I was happy to use it for another fall Thank You card. And I decided to combine it with the quaint Harvest Meadow and rustic In Good Taste designer series papers for a sweet country look. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

My card was inspired by the Nature’s Beauty Color Challenge at Sunday Stamps SSC269:

I adhered a panel of Harvest Meadows designer series paper to a Misty Moonlight mat and popped it on the front of a Gray Granite Card base with dimensionals. I cut a stitched rectangle using the rustic wood grain In Good Taste designer series paper, adhered it to a Basic Black mat and then adhered it to the card front with liquid glue.

I stamped the pretty coneflowers from the beautiful Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Harvest cling stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black on Basic White and colored it with Stampin’ Blends. I used Old Olive, Daffodil Delight, Cinnamon Cider and Soft Suede. Then I cut it out with the coordinating die and popped it on the card front with dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Harvest stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black on Old Olive and cut it out with the small label die. I adhered it to the card with dimensionals and glue dots. I made a triple loopy bow with Linen thread and adhered it with a glue dot and finished the card front with champagne rhinestone gems.

For the inside of the card, I inked up the coneflower stamp with Gray Granite ink and stamped off twice before stamping the image on a Basic White panel. I trimmed the bottom with the Harvest Meadow DSP and adhered the panel to the inside of the card with Stampin’ Seal.

The beautiful coneflowers from the Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Harvest stamp set are really fun to color and they always come out beautiful! Thanks for stopping by!

Stampin’ Up! Nuts About Squirrels Hello Card

Good Morning! Oh My Gosh – the Stampin’ Up! Nuts About Squirrels photopolymer stamp set is the cutest squirrel stamp set ever! For today’s card, I made a Fall hello card with one of the little guys and used and embossed Pumpkin Pie panel as the background and I just love how it came out. You can find the currently available supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I embossed a panel of Pumpkin Pie with the Bark 3D embossing folder (this embossing folder shrinks a little, so I embossed a panel 1/8″ wider and cut it to size after embossing). I adhered a strip of Beauty of the Earth designer series paper to the front and adhered the panel to an Early Espresso mat. I wrapped it with Crumb Cake baker’s Twine and made a bow, then adhered it to the front of a Sahara Sand card base.

I stamped the outline squirrel from the Stampin’ Up! Nuts About Squirrels stamp set in Early Espresso on a Basic White panel and stamped the filler in Sahara Sand. I am amazed at how wonderful this two step process turns out! I stamped the bottom of the acorn in stamped off Cinnamon Cider and the acorn top in Soft Suede. I stamped the tree branch in Soft Suede and inked the leaves in bumblebee and used a sponge dauber to add touches of Old Olive (I cleaned off the stamp each time to keep my Bumblebee ink pad green-free). After all the leaves were stamped, I stamped the leaf veins in Bumblebee. I cut the little guy out with the largest Layering Circle die and cut out a scalloped circle from Early Espresso to adhere to the back.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Nuts About Squirrels stamp set in Early Espresso on Sahara Sand and hand trimmed a banner flag end with my paper snips. I adhered it to an Early Espresso mat and trimmed the banner end before adhering it to the squirrel with glue dots. I adhered the little squirrel to the card front with dimensionals.

For the inside of the card, I stamped a couple of tree branches in Soft Suede and a bunch of falling leaves in Bumblebee and Old Olive on a Basic White panel, just like the front. And of course I had to stamp the cute little sentiment from the Banner Year photopolymer stamp set in Early Espresso! I trimmed the bottom with Beauty of the Earth DSP before adhering the panel to the inside of the card.

The little squirrel from the Stampin’ Up! Nuts About Squirrels stamp set is so cute and mischievous! It’s perfect for sending some cheerful Fall greetings to, well everyone! The two step stamping process works wonderfully for the images, but you can also color these little guys with markers or watercolors
