Stampin’ Up! Field Journal for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! For today’s hop, I used the cute little chipmunk from the Stampin’ Up Field Journal cling stamp set to make a rustic thank you card, pairing it with the Poinsettia Place designer series paper and the Beautiful Boughs Dies. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

We have a sketch challenge this week, and here is the pretty sketch we are using for our projects:

Adhere a panel of the wood grained Poinsettia Place designer series paper to the front of a Crumb Cake card base. Cut a panel of the pinecone paper from the Poinsettia Place designer series paper with the Stitched Rectangles Dies and adhere it to a Garden Green mat. Adhere the layered panel to the card front with dimensionals.

Cut out the medium bough from the Beautiful Boughs dies from Garden Green card stock. Cut out the pine cones – two detailed small pinecones from Soft Suede and two solid pinecones from Crumb Cake. Adhere the pinecones together and adhere the bough and layered pinecones to the lower corner of the panel. Stamp the chipmunk, plant and sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Field Journal stamp set in Early Espresso ink on a Whisper White panel. Cut it out with the large oval die from the Stitched Shapes Dies.

Color the images from the Stampin’ Up! Field Journal stamp set using Stampin Blends – Cinnamon Cider, Crumb Cake, Bronze, Old Olive, Rococo Rose, and Soft Suede. Cut out the largest scalloped oval die from the Layering Ovals Dies from Soft Suede card stock. Adhere the stamped image to the scalloped oval and adhere it to the card front with dimensionals. Finish the card front with a braided linen bow.

Stamp the plant and sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Field Journal stamp set in Early Espresso ink on a Whisper White panel. Adhere the panel to a Garden Green mat and adhere it to the inside of the card.

The nature images from the Stampin’ Up! Field Journal stamp set are great for making cards for many different occasions. And they are a perfect when paired with the Poinsettia Place rustic nature papers, which are currently on sale this month at a 15% discount!

Stampin’ Up! Field Journal Birthday Card

Good Morning! Today I have a simple masculine birthday card made with the Stampin’ Up! Field Journal Cling stamp set. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I stamped the duck from the Stampin’ Up! Field Journal stamp set in Early Espresso ink on a Whisper White panel. I cut it out with the largest stitched oval from the Stitched Shapes Dies. I colored it with Bermuda Bay, Cinnamon Cider, Soft Suede, Crumb Cake and Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends. I colored the ground with Old Olive Stampin’ Blends and the background with Pool Party Stampin’ Blends.

I embossed a panel of Mossy Meadow card stock with the Old World Paper 3D embossing folder. I adhered an antique corner to each corner with a glue dot. I adhered a panel of World of Good specialty designer series paper to an Early Espresso mat. I adhered a strip of In Good Taste designer series paper on top.

I adhered the embossed Mossy Meadow panel on the layered DSP panel and popped the art panel on top with dimensionals. I popped the panel on the front of a Crumb Cake card base.

I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Pallet Thoughts cling stamp set in Early Espresso ink on a Whisper White panel. I stamped the plant from the Stampin’ Up! Field Journal stamp set in Crumb Cake ink after stamping off twice. I trimmed the bottom with a strip of World of Good DSP to the bottom and adhered it to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Field Journal stamp set is like a walk in the woods. The pretty line drawn images are great for coloring and would make a great card for any nature lover.

Stampin’ Up! Sending Sunshine for the Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Good Morning! Welcome to the July Inkin’ Krew Monthly Blog Hop! The theme for this month’s hop is Celebrate Summer and I made an ocean sunrise card to share. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

And today’s card is also fits with the summer beach themes in Hand Stamped Sentiments Inspiration Challenge 343:

I embossed a panel of Bermuda Bay card stock with the Tasteful Textiles 3D embossing folder and adhered it to the front of a Bermuda Bay card base. I adhered a strip of Cinnamon Cider 2020-2022 In Color 6″ x 6″ designer series paper to the side. I wrapped a length of Bumblebee 2020-2021 In Color Twill ribbon around the card front and tied a knot on the left side.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Sending Sunshine photopolymer stamp set to create an ocean sunrise scene on a Whisper White panel. I started by stamping the deep water in Balmy Blue ink and stamped the shallow water over it in Balmy Blue ink after stamping off. I stamped the rising sun in Mango Melody ink and the rocky shore on the left side in Cinnamon Cider ink. I masked the sky and colored the sky with sponge daubers, starting with Calypso Coral on the horizon. Then I sponged some Mango Melody and Bumblebee to extend the light upward. I finished with Balmy Blue, making the sky darker as I went up. I finished the sky by stamping some whisky clouds in Gray Granite after stamping off twice.

I lightly sponged some sand in Crumb Cake and also stamped some sand. I stamped the foliage in Garden Green. I finished off the scene by stamping the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Sending Sunshine stamp set in Mango Melody in the sky and adding touches of Wink of Stella on the sun and the deep water. It’s hard to see the sparkle, but it’s beautiful I person. I adhered the scene to a Cinnamon cider mat and then popped it on the card front with dimensionals. I finished it off with a Just Jade enamel dot.

I stamped and sponged a mini version of the beach scene on the bottom of a Whisper White panel using the same colors and techniques as on the card front. I adhered a strip of the Cinnamon Cider DSP to the left side. I stamped the sentiment in Mango Melody ink and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

Are you planning to spend any time at the beach this summer? If so, I hope your time is perfect! 😊

Stampin’ Up! Special Someone Thank You Card for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Morning! Welcome to another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! I have made a whimsical thank you card using the Stampin’ Up! Special Someone stamp set along with the matching Special Day dies from the Coordination Release. Here’s my card:

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

I embossed a panel of the wood grain paper from the Pressed Petals specialty designer series paper with the Woodland embossing folder. I cut a strip of Pear Pizzazz card stock with the grass die from the Special Day dies. I embossed the grass strip with the Subtle embossing folder. I cut the tree from Mossy Meadow card stock using the tree die from the Sweet Silhouettes dies. I sponged the top of a Whisper White panel with Balmy Blue ink so that it would look like a sky. I adhered the grass to the bottom of the panel with multipurpose liquid glue. I adhered the tree to the right side of the panel with multipurpose liquid glue and trimmed the ends. I adhered the panel to the embossed wood grain paper with multipurpose liquid glue.

On a panel of Whisper White, I stamped the raccoon from the Stampin’ Up! Special Someone stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I stamped the squirrel in Early Espresso ink and the mouse in Gray Granite ink. I cut out all three critters using the coordinating dies from the Special Day dies. I colored the raccoon and squirrel with the Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends and the mouse with the Gray Granite Stampin’ Blends. I adhered them to the front with dimensionals. I stamped the butterflies from the Stampin’ Up! Special Someone stamp set with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I die cut the flowers with the 4-flower dies using Lovely Lipstick, Pineapple Punch, Petal Pink and Pool Party card stock scraps. I adhered them to the bottom with multipurpose liquid glue and added a pearl to the center of each.

I stamped the Thank You sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Special Someone stamp set in Early Espresso ink on a strip of Pear Pizzazz card stock. I cut it out with the smallest scalloped rectangle die from the Stitched So Sweetly dies. I wrapped it with linen thread and tied a bow to the left side. I adhered it to the panel with dimensionals and I adhered the decorated panel to a Pretty Peacock card base with dimensionals.

For the inside of the card, I cut a strip of Pear Pizzazz card stock with the grass die from the Special Day dies. I embossed it with the Subtle embossing folder and adhered it to the bottom of a Whisper White panel. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card with multipurpose liquid glue.

Stampin’ Up! Snow Front Autumn Cabin in the Woods Card

Good Morning! Yesterday was officially the first day of Fall, but with temperatures n the high 80’s here in Pennsylvania, it really doesn’t feel like it yet. So here’s a card to get us in the mood. It’s made with the new Stampin’ Up! Snow Front photopolymer stamp set. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I started by running a Cajun Craze panel through the Pinewood Planks embossing folder and mounting it on a Soft Suede card base with liquid glue. I randomly stamped the large maple leaf from the Gather Together stamp set in Delicata Celestial Copper ink on a panel of Crumb Cake cardstock.

I stamped the images from the Stampin’ Up Snow Front stamp set on a panel of Whisper white as follows:

  • Mountains – Smoky Slate
  • Pine Trees – Shaded Spruce
  • Cabin and Deer – Early Espresso
  • Tree Trunks – Soft Suede
  • Leaves – Old Olive, Crushed Curry, Cajun Crazw
  • Lake – Balmy Blue
  • Grass – Old Olive

I then lightly sponged the grass in Old Olive and the sky in Seaside Spray. I gave the cabin a red tin roof using the Dark Real Red Stampin’ Blend and colored the cabin with the Light Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blend. I added a touch of Wink of Stella to the lake to make the water sparkle and wrapped a piece of copper trim around the bottom.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Gathered Together set on a strip of Old Olive cardstock using Early Espresso ink and added a copper Designer element before adhering it to the bottom of the image. I layered the Crumb Cake panel and the image and adhered them to the card with liquid glue.

I decorated the inside of the card by stamping a few maple leaves from the Gather Together stamp set in Celestial Copper ink on a panel of Whisper White. I adhered it to a Cajun Craze mat and then to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up Snow Front stamp set is similar to the Waterfront stamp set for creating artistic landscape scenes. This puts me in the mood to visit the mountains and woods to see some great fall foliage. Thanks for visiting and have a great Fall day!
