Stampin’ Up! Birds & Branches for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Morning and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! I used the pretty Stampin’ Up! Birds & Branches bundle to make a smile card for today’s Hop. 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 theme challenge this week and our theme is:

Seeing new birds flying in the backyard always makes me feel excited for Spring, and it’s always exciting to see a nest with eggs! So I started by embossing a Pool Party panel with the Subtle 3D embossing folder and adhering it to the front of a Pool Party card base. I cut a Basic White panel with the second largest scalloped rectangle die from the Stitched So Sweetly dies and lightly brushed it with Pool Party ink using my Blending Brush.

I stamped the bird from the Stampin’ Up! Birds & Branches photopolymer stamp set in Misty Moonlight ink and stamped the wing in Misty Moonlight on top. I colored the breast with the Light Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blend and used the color Lifter to blend the edge. I cut the bird out with the coordinating die. I stamped the eggs in Balmy Blue on Basic White and cut them out with the coordinating die. I stamped the nest in Sahara Sand ink on Sahara Sand card stock and cut it out with the coordinating die.

I cut the branch from Soft Suede card stock and cut the leaves from Old Olive. I placed the die on the Old Olive card stock to cut the leaves, avoiding the branches as much as possible and had to run it through the die cutting machine a couple of times to get all the leaves. Then I fussy cut the leaves to clean them up and adhered them to the branches. I cut the flowers from the Always dies and adhered them to the branch. I added a champagne rhinestone to each flower center.

I adhered the eggs and nest to the scalloped rectangle with liquid glue. Then popped the bird on the edge of the nest with dimensionals. I adhered the panel to the card front with liquid glue and adhered the branch on top with tiny dots of liquid glue. I stamped the sentiment from the Lovely You cling stamp set on Basic White and cut it out with the smallest scalloped rectangle from the Stitched So Sweetly dies. I folded a length of Pool Party ribbon and adhered it to the card and popped the label on top with dimensionals. I finished the label with another champagne rhinestone.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the branches from the Stampin’ Up! Birds & Branches stamp set in stamped off Soft Suede ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the leaves in stamped off Old Olive and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Birds & Branches stamp bundle is so cute and so versatile! I hope this card reminds you of Spring and makes you smile!

Stampin’ Up! Hydrangea Haven Card

Good Morning! Today I have a sweet friendship note card made with the pretty Stampin’ Up! Hydrangea Haven stamp set and the beautiful Hydrangea Hill designer series paper. I also added a special touch – the Hydrangea Hill Mercury Glass acetate as a label mat! You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I embossed a Purple Posy panel with the Ornate Floral 3D embossing folder and adhered it to the front of a Purple Posy card base with liquid glue. I cut a panel of Hydrangea Hill designer series paper with the Stitched Rectangles Dies and adhered it to a Highland Heather mat before popping it on the card front with dimensionals.

I stamped the sweet sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Hydrangea Haven photopolymer stamp set in Gorgeous Grape ink on a small Purple Posy panel and cut it out with the smallest Stitched Rectangles Die. I cut a panel of the Highland Heather Mercury Glass acetate with the next largest Stitched Rectangle die and adhered it to the back of the Purple Posy label with glue dots. Don’t forget to pull off the protective plastic!

I ran some Stampin’ Seal across the lower right corner of the Hydrangea Hill Die cut and folded a length of Gorgeous Grape ribbon across it. I adhered the layered label on top of the ribbon with dimensionals and finished the ribbon with a Highland Heather Pastel Pearl.

For the inside of the card, I adhered a strip of the Hydrangea Hill DSP to the bottom of a Basic White panel. I adhered the panel to a Highland Heather mat and then adhered it all to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Hydrangea Haven bundle is just beautiful with the Hydrangea Hill DSP. And it goes with so many colors – purple, blue and pink!

Stampin’ Up! Daisy Lane Fall Card Video Tutorial

Good Morning! Today I’m sharing a fall card made with the Stampin’ Up! Daisy Lane stamp set accented with leaves from the Gathered Leaves Dies. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

Here is the Facebook Live video showing how I made the card:

I will post an edited version of how I made the card in my YouTube channel later this week so you can view a quickie version.

My card layout uses Freshly Made Sketches 457 – this is a good one, check it out.

Adhere a panel of Plaid Tidings 6″ x 6″ designer series paper to the front of an Early Espresso Card base (don’t forget that the Plaid Tidings DSP is on sale this month! 😊). Stamp the Birch cling background stamp in Early Espresso ink on a Bumblebee panel and emboss it with the Tasteful Textile 3D embossing folder. Adhere it to an Early Espresso mat and pop it on the card front with dimensionals.

Adhere a berry branch from the Forever Gold Laser cut specialty paper to the embossed panel. Cut the Gathered Leaves dies from Cajun Craze, Pumpkin Pie and Pear Pizzazz card stock. Adhere the leaves to the card front. Stamp three small daisies from the Stampin’ Up! Daisy Lane stamp set in Bumblebee ink on Bumblebee card stock. Sponge the centers with Cajun Craze ink and sponge Pumpkin Pie ink around the petals, leaving just the tips. Punch out the three petal clusters with the medium daisy punch. Gently bend the petals back on one cluster, back and forward on the second and all forward on the last cluster. Adhere the clusters together with liquid glue.

Cut the center from gold foil using the flower center die from the Poinsettias Dies and adhere it to the middle of the flower. Pop the flower on the card front with a dimensional. Adhere a gold trim bow under the flower. Stamp the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Daisy Lane stamp set in Early Espresso ink on a strip of Pumpkin Pie and trim the ends. Adhere it to a strip of early Espresso and pop it on the card front with dimensionals. Finish the card front with three Gilded Gems.

Stamp and emboss a strip of Bumblebee card stock to match the front panel and adhere it to the bottom of a Whisper White panel. Cut a small Gathered Leaves Die leaf from Pumpkin Pie and adhere it to the top corner of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Daisy Lane stamp set and the coordinating punches are perfect for creating fall floral cards – just change up the colors to coordinate with your favorite fall designer series paper. This is perfect for birthdays and other occasions when a pumpkin just won’t do.

Stampin’ Up! Birds and Branches Smile Car Video Tutorial

Good Morning! Today I’m sharing a Smile card made with the Stampin’ Up! Birds and Branches bundle that I made during my Facebook Live video tutorial Saturday afternoon. I used the sweet stamped birds with the nest and the smile sentiment from the Lovely You 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.

Here is the Facebook Live video showing how I made the card:

I also posted the video to my YouTube Channel and you can view it here if you prefer.

I made a sample card with a Sahara Sand card base and a distressed background, but I felt it was a bit dark, so the card I made in the video and pictured here is a brighter color palette. I embossed a Soft Sea Foam Panel with the Woodland embossing folder and adhered it to the front of a Thick Whisper White card base. I stamped and die cut the eggs in Balmy Blue and nest in crumb cake. I also die cut two branches in Garden Green and a background panel in Pool Party using the Stitched Nested Labels Dies.

I wanted the birds to be bluebirds like the ones in my back yard, so I stamped the male in Pacific Point and the female in Gray Granite and stamped off Pacific Point. I used the Light Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blend and Color Lifter to color the birds’ breasts and then cut them out with the coordinating dies.

I adhered the die cut branches and Pool Party die cut with liquid glue. I popped the nest on with dimensionals and filled it with the eggs. I tucked the female bird on the side with liquid glue and popped the male bird on with dimensionals. I adhered the Pool Party panel on the card front with dimensionals. I stamped the smile sentiment from the Lovely You stamp set in Soft Suede ink on a strip of Sahara Sand card stock and cut it out with the Tasteful Labels die. I adhered some linen ribbon behind it and popped it on the card front with dimensionals.

I stamped a male blue bird on a Whisper White panel using the Stampin’ Up! Birds and Branches stamp set and added another Garden Green die cut branch. I gave him some legs and adhered the panel to a Soft Sea Foam mat and then to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Birds and Branches bundle is so versatile! There is a leafy circle die cut for a window along with a leafy border. It also has a funky pair of die cut birds that would go very well with an abstract modern card and the 3-step birds allow you to combine them to create color combinations! We’ll explore these throughout the summer as we enjoy our feathered friends in our back yards!

Stampin’ Up! Lovely You with Wreath Builder Dies for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Morning! Welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! It’s been such a hectic and fun week with the new catalog opening and organizing my new products. But I just love the new In Colors and there are so many fantastic new bundles.

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

I started with a strip of the pretty Playing with Patterns 6×6 designer series paper and adhered it to a Night of Navy mat. I embossed a panel of the new In Color Just Jade card stock with the Ornate Floral 3D embossing folder and adhered it to the front of a Just Jade card base. I adhered the matted Playing with Patterns DSP to the center of the card front. The DSP has Coastal Cabana stripes, but it really goes well with the Just Jade – I was surprised!

I cut the leaf wreath from the Stampin’ Up! Wreath Builder Die set from Just Jade and Vellum card stocks. I used a die from the Layering Circles Dies to cut a circle from Whisper White card stock and stamped the smile sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Lovely You stamp set in Night of Navy ink in the center of the circle. I layered the Just Jade wreath on the Vellum wreath and adhered them with liquid glue. I adhered the circle to the back of the the wreaths with liquid glue on the inside leaves and then I adhered the layered wreath to the card front.

Next came the fun part – I cut sets of flowers using the flower dies from the Stampin’ Up! Wreath Builder dies from Calypso Coral, Crushed Curry and Magenta Madness card stock. I also cut the bow from Night of Navy card stock. I adhered a large rhinestone gem to the center of the bow and adhered the bow to the bottom of the wreath with a glue dot. I adhered rhinestone gems to the center of each flower using the medium gems for the large flower and small gems to the small flower. I arranged the flowers around the wreath, adhering them with glue dots.

The inside of the card is is plain, I just added a strip of the Playing with Patterns DSP to the bottom of a Whisper White panel and adhered it to the inside of the card. This leaves plenty of room for writing a cheerful note to brighten a friend’s day.

Stampin’ Up! Daisy Lane Smile Card

Good Morning! I hope you had a good weekend and are ready for the weekday grind. Today I have a card with a cheery Monday morning message, “Smile … It’s your time to shine!“. The card is made with the new Stampin’ Up! Daisy Lane cling bundle. You can find the products used at the bottom of the post.

The layout for today’s card is inspired by Freshly Made Sketches #395. This simple sketch gave me a great opportunity to showcase the wonderful large Stitched Label in vellum. And the striped paper is just enough to break up the patterned background.

And the colors are inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments Color Challenge #318. This combination is so fresh and summery and it gave me another opportunity to stamp patterned paper.

Be sure to check out the fantastic entries in these challenges for more card making inspiration.

I started today’s card by making another faux DSP – designer series paper or patterned paper. I used the daisy stamps from the Stampin’ Up! Daisy Lane and Stampin’ Up! Daisy Delight stamp sets and the leaf branch from the Stampin’ Up! Free as a Bird stamp set. On a sheet of Whisper White cardstock, I randomly stamped the large daisy in Petal Pink, the small daisy in Calypso Coral and the leaves in Mint Macaron. I lightly sponged each image in the respective colors and then I sponged the rest with So Saffron. Then I ran it through the Subtle embossing folder to add texture. The embossing really made it special!

I cut an extended piece of the striped paper from the Magnolia Lane DSP using the 1″ Stitched Rectangle die. I die cut the large fancy Stitched Label die from vellum and heat embossed the Smile sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Daisy Lane stamp set on Mink Macaron and die cut it using the smaller Stitched label Die.

I stamped three of the small daisies in Petal Pink on Whisper White and punched them out with the Medium Daisy Punch and curled the ends before attaching them together. I finished the daisy off with a non-SU clear enamel dot from my stash that I colored with the dark Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blends and finally a Mint Macaron leaf branch from the Flourish dies. I arranged all the elements on the card front, matted it in Mint Macaron and then popped it on a Thick Whisper White card base with dimensionals.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the shine sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Daisy Lane stamp set, added a strip of faux DSP and matted it in Mint Macaron.

Isn’t that a pretty and cheerful way to start a summer week? Thanks for visiting and I hope that you have a week where you do shine!
