Stampin’ Up! Daisy Lane Simply Thankful Card for the Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Good Morning! Welcome to The October Inkin’ Krew Monthly Blog Hop!

Our theme for this month is Giving Thanks and I’ve made a card using the Stampin’ Up! Daisy Lane stamp set and the wonderful sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Country Home stamp set. These daisies remind me of the purple mums that are all over the place at this time of year and make me feel like Fall. 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 die cutting two pieces of Sahara Sand card stock using the second largest of the Stitched Rectangles dies. On one of them, I took the third largest of the Stitched Rectangle dies and cut out the middle to make a frame. Then I cut a panel of green leafy paper from the Magnolia Lane designer series paper using the same die. Then I adhered the frame to the second Sahara Sand die cut and adhered the green leaf DST to the inside.

Then I used the middle of the Sahara Sand frame to cut the label die from the Wild Rose dies. I stamped the sentiment from the Country Home stamp set in Versamark ink and sprinkled it with gold embossing powder. I heat set it and then adhered it to the background panel with liquid glue.

I stamped the large maple leaf from the Gather Together stamp set in Early Espresso ink on a panel of Very Vanilla. I then colored it with the Old Olive and Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blends and cut it out with the coordinating die. I also cut two maple leaves from Old Olive cardstock and one maple leaf from Cajun Craze cardstock using the smaller maple leaf die from the Gathered Leaves dies. Then I cut three berry branches in Gold Glimmer paper using the berry die from the Frosted Bouquet dies.

I stamped six small daisies from the Stampin’ Up! Daisy Lane stamp set in Rich Razzleberry ink on Rich Razzleberry card stock. Using a bone folder, I gently rounded the ends of the petals and glued three petal clusters together for each flower. I accented the centers with the gold Designer Elements. I arranged the leaves and berries on the panel and adhered them with liquid glue. I adhered the flowers with glue dots. I then used dimensionals to attach the decorated panel to a Cajun Craze card base.

I decided that I had to give the inside of the card the same frame treatment as the card front. So I cut another frame in Sahara Sand just like the front and attached it to the inside of the card with liquid glue. I then adhered a strip of the Magnolia Lane DSP to the bottom of a Very Vanilla panel and cut it out with the third largest die from the Stitched Rectangles dies. I adhered this to the inside of the card with liquid glue.

There you have it – a pretty fall card with flowers from the Stampin’ Up! Daisy Lane stamp set, turning maple leaves and touches of gold to express the thankful sentiments that abound at this time of year. Thanks for visiting!

Stampin’ Up! To Every Season Holiday Cards

Good Morning! Saturday was World Card Making Day and the Inkin Krew had a celebration on Facebook. Our leader, Amy, created a group for customers and friends and we had several Facebook Live presentations on card making throughout the day. It was an inspirational and fun day and thank you to everyone who participated!

For this celebration, I made a Thankful for You card using the Stampin’ Up! To Every Season bundle on Facebook Live. I was so nervous since I have only done a few videos and the audience was so much bigger than the handful of supporters I usually have watching! Here is the Facebook Live video:

You can also view this video on YouTube here.

And then on Sunday afternoon, I did my normally scheduled Live session on my Stampin’ In The Meadows Facebook page and I made a Halloween card using the same stamp set.

Here is that video:

And I also uploaded it to YouTube for watching here.

The Stampin’ Up! To Every Season stamp bundle is very versatile and will take you a long way. It has bat stamps for Halloween, leaf stamps for Fall or Thanksgiving, snowflake stamps for Christmas or Winter and heart stamps for Valentines day. And in the bundle, you also get the Every Season punch pack, consisting of 4 mini punches – a bat, a leaf, a snowflake and a heart. And it has lots of sentiments in a nice simple font.

My video adventure continues to evolve. I’m taking baby steps and learning A LOT. I still have a ways to go, but I did get my Stampin’ In The Meadows YouTube channel started and a couple of videos posted. YAY!! I still need to learn about customizing it so it’s pretty, but I’ll get there eventually. You can take a look at it here, and all suggestions are welcome. Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!

Stampin’ Up! Gather Together Fall Leaves Card

Good Morning! Today I’m sharing another Facebook Live video that I made with a card that I CASEd ( copy and share everything) from a fellow Inkin’ Krew team member Leslie Larkin. I loved this card that Leslie made and shared on our Facebook Team page. You can see her original on her blog here. You can find the supplies used to create my card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

When I first made the sample I made a boo boo because I embossed the panel before stamping the sentiment. So I had to modify it, and then when I made the video I changed it up a little more. Here’s the video. I hope you enjoy it.

This is the first time I’ve used my phone camera for recording for FB Live and I figured out how to fix some technical difficulties, but some still exist, so thank you for bearing with me. I’m planning to start a You Tube Channel by the week’s end, and I’ll update this post with the link when its ready.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!

Akiko

Evening Update: I posted the video to YouTube and you can view it here. I also managed to clean up phone orientation issues in the first two minutes (Yay!) before posting. Thanks for being patient with me. 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Gather Together Fall Thank You Card

Good Morning! Boy, I’m really on a roll with the new Stampin’ Up! Gather Together bundle. I’ve made about 1/2 dozen different designs for classes and tutorials as well as this blog. I think it’s because we’re in the season and the bundle and papers are so pretty and versatile. This card is a Thank You card that combines the Gather Together bundle with the Well Written dies.

This is a card that I designed for my Cardmaking 101 video series on Facebook. It’s the first time I’ve introduced die cuts in the series and these are the perfect sets to introduce this wonderful technique. Here is the card. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

And here is a link to the how-to video that I shared earlier on Facebook Live. Instructions for creating the card are in the video. I apologize ahead of time for it being so long – my goal is to improve each video in both production and instructional quality.

I intend to set up a YouTube channel in the near future so you can view my videos there as well, but I’m still learning how to set this up, so for now I am only on Facebook and here.

Here’s a closeup of the card front details:

Thanks for visiting and watching. Have a great weekend!

Stampin’ Up! Floral Essence Thank You Card

Good Morning! I hope you had a great weekend! Today I have a Floral Thank You card made with the Stampin’ Up! Floral Essence Photopolymer stamp set. I was inspired by the colors and theme in the Hand Stamped Sentiments Inspiration Challenge #322.

I just love these colors – they are so elegant and kind of old fashioned! You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

So here’s my card. I started by running a panel of Rococo Rose cardstock through the Tin Tile embossing folder and adhering it to a Blackberry Bliss mat. I took a piece of Raspberry Ripple grosgrain ripple ribbon from my stash and wrapped it around the bottom, securing it in the back. I embossed the Thanks sentiment from the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set using silver embossing powder on a strip of the Petal Pink vellum from the Perennial Essence vellum cardstock and adhered it over the ribbon.

I then worked on the flower bouquet. I stamped two of the solid flowers from the Stampin’ Up! Floral Essence stamp set in Blackberry Bliss and one in Flirty Flamingo on Whisper White cardstock. I stamped one of the small solid flowers in Flirty Flamingo and one in Blackberry Bliss (for the inside of the card) on Whisper White cardstock. I then fussy cut all the flowers. I stamped four sets of the the leaves in Smoky Slate ink on Whisper White cardstock and punched them out with the leaf punch (much easier than fussy cutting!).

I stamped centers for the flowers in Versamark ink on Whisper White and embossed them in Silver. I fussy cut them and adhered them to the flowers using liquid glue. I then arranged the leaves and Flirty Flamingo flowers on the card front panel and adhered them with liquid glue. I adhered the two large Blackberry Bliss flowers together to make a larger flower and popped it on the card front with dimensionals. I finished the card front with three frosted epoxy drops and popped the panel on a Gray Granite card base with dimensionals.

I decorated the inside of the card by stamping another leaf branch in Smoky Slate ink on a panel of Whisper White and adhered the last Blackberry Bliss flower over it. I then added Rococo Rose and Blackberry Bliss mats and adhered it to the inside of the card with liquid glue.

I hope you liked my card for today. Thanks for visiting and have a great week!
