Stampin’ Up! Enjoy The Moment Sneak Peek

Good Friday Morning! Can you believe that it’s a week until Christmas!! I don’t think I’m ready, so I am going to share another sneak peek of the upcoming Stampin’ Up! Enjoy The Moment cling stamp set. This pretty set is in the new January – June 2021 Mini Catalog and will be available on January 5. You can find the currently available supplies used to create this card and the card stock cuts at the bottom of this post.

I adhered a panel of the dark wood grained paper from the In Good Taste designer series paper to the front of a Soft Suede card base. I stamped the seed pods from the Stampin’ Up! Enjoy the Moment stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a Whisper White panel and colored them with the Granny Apple Green, Soft Suede, Crumb Cake and Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blends. I used the new blending brushes from the upcoming January – June 2021 Mini Catalog to blend the background with Seaside Spray ink.

I trimmed the panel to 3″ x 3″ and adhered it to a Pretty Peacock mat. I popped the panel on the card front with dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Enjoy The Moment stamp set in Versamark ink on a Pretty Peacock strip. I sprinkled it with white embossing powder and heat set the powder until it was shiny. I cut the label out with the sentiment on the right side with the small stitched banner die from thee Tasteful Labels dies.

I wrapped a length of linen thread around the left side of the banner and made a bow. I adhered a branch from the In Good Taste Elements with glue dots and adhered the label over the branch with dimensionals.

For the inside of the card, I stamped more seed pods from the Stampin’ Up! Enjoy TheMoment stamp set in the corners of a Whisper White panel and colored them with Stampin Blends like the front. I trimmed the bottom with a strip of the dark wood grained In Good Taste DSP and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The seed pods from the Stampin’ Up! Enjoy The Moment stamp set are pretty colored with the Stampin Blends, and they are very realistic. And there are lots of really nice sentiments in the stamp set too! This was the first time that I used blending brushes and I was pretty happy with how they worked. They will all be available when the new January – June 2021 Mini Catalog opens on January 5, 2021.

Stampin’ Up! Enjoy The Moment Sneak Peek

Good Friday Morning! Today am sharing a sneak peek of a card that uses the new Stampin’ Up! Enjoy The Moment cling stamp set from the upcoming January – June 2021 Mini Catalog. My card is CASE’d from one that Melody Hyde presented at the Stampin’ Up! OnStage@Home event a few weeks back. While Melody used new designer series paper, I paired the stamp set with the In Good Taste DSP. You can find the currently available supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I embossed a panel of Pretty Peacock with the Tasteful Textile 3D embossing folder and adhered it to the front of a Pretty Peacock card base. I used two sizes of the Stitched Rectangles Dies to cut the wood grained and the gesso canvas papers from the In Good Taste designer series paper. I stamped the small seed pods from the upcoming Stampin’ Up! Enjoy The Moment cling stamp set in Crumb Cake ink randomly across the die cut wood grained paper.

I stamped the large seed pod from the Stampin’ Up! Enjoy The Moment stamp set in Crumb Cake ink on the die cut gesso canvas DSP panel. I colored it with Crumb Cake and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends. I brushed some Pool Party Stampin’ Blends on the right side of the pod like a shadow and used the Color Lifter to blend the line. I adhered the In Good Taste paper panels to the card front with liquid glue.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Enjoy The Moment stamp set in Crumb Cake ink on a Whisper White strip and cut it out with the Tasteful Labels die. I folded a length of sheer Pool Party ribbon and adhered it behind the label. I popped it on the card front with dimensionals. I finished off the card front with blue sequins.

I stamped the seed pod from the Stampin’ Up! Enjoy The Moment stamp set in Crumb Cake ink on a small panel of the gesso canvas DSP and colored it to match the front. I stamped the little seed pods on a small panel of the wood grained DSP. I adhered the little panels of the In Good Taste DSP to the lower corner of a Whisper white panel and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

A cute little nature themed note card! The In Good Taste designer series papers have so many different textures that coordinate beautifully with nature themed stamp sets like the new Stampin’ Up! Enjoy The Moment stamp set. With all the different images and sweet sentiments, this stamp set belongs on every wish list for the upcoming January – June 2021 Mini Catalog!

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! 😊
