Stampin’ Up! Ornate Thanks for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Morning! Welcome to another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! I am using the beautiful new Stampin’ Up! Ornate Thanks stamp bundle for my card share today, but in a new color palette.

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

I started by cutting the bottom of a Blackberry Bliss panel with the rose die cut border from the Ornate Borders Dies. The Ornate Borders Dies are part of the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Thanks bundle along with the Ornate Thanks stamp set (and at a 10% discount). I adhered the panel of Perennial Essence designer series paper on top with multipurpose liquid glue.

I colored a 10″ length of Whisper White crinkle ribbon with the Dark Purple Posy Stampin’ Blend and tied a knot. I snipped the ribbon so that the knot would be to one side and wrapped it around the layered panel securing it in the back with snail. I added a glue dot just behind the knot to keep it in place and adhered it to a Purple Posy card base with multipurpose liquid glue.

I cut a panel of Old Olive vellum from the Perennial Essence Vellum card stock with the long fancy die from the Ornate Layers Dies. I wiped the embossing buddy on a panel of Purple Posy and stamped the long Thank You sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Thanks cling stamp set with VersaMark Ink. I sprinkled it with silver embossing powder and heat set until it was shiny. I stamped the for everything sentiment in Blackberry Bliss ink. I adhered the fancy green vellum label backing behind the label with multipurpose liquid glue and adhered the layered label to the card front.

I stamped one of the flowers from the Dressed To Impress stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Whisper White and cut it out with the coordinating die. I colored it with the Dark Daffodil Delight, Dark & Light Purple Posy and Dark Old Olive Stampin Blends and adhered it to the top corner of a Whisper White panel. I adhered a strip of Perennial Essence DSP to the bottom. I adhered the panel to a Blackberry Bliss panel and then to the inside of the card with multipurpose liquid glue.

The Ornate Garden Suite is wonderful, and I was so pleased to see how pretty is is with the Perennial Essence designer series paper in a different color palette.

Stampin’ Up! Ornate Garden with Love What You Do

Good Morning! Today I have a thank you card made with several products from the new Stampin’ Up! Ornate Garden Suite paired with the thank you sentiment from the Love What You Do 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.

Emboss a panel of Whisper White with the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder and adhere the panel of the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Garden specialty designer series paper to the right side. Cut a strip of Old Olive card stock with the skinny eyelet border from the Ornate Borders Dies and adhere it to the seam with liquid glue. Adhere the layered embossed panel to an Old Olive mat with liquid glue and pop it on a Rococo Rose card base with dimensionals.

Cut a panel of Old Olive card stock with the large fancy label from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. Stamp the thank you sentiment from the Love What You Do photopolymer stamp set in Rococo Rose ink on a Whisper White panel.

Cut out the sentiment with the die from the Stitched So Sweetly dies and adhere it to the larger Old Olive die cut label with liquid glue. Adhere the label to the card with dimensionals.

Cut out the two smallest flower dies from the Ornate Borders Dies using Blushing Bride card stock. Adhere the smaller flower on top of the larger flower with liquid glue, offsetting the petals to fill in the gaps. Add a Rococo Rose faceted gem to the center. Cut a leaf cluster out of Old Olive with the Leaf Punch. Adhere the leaf cluster to the label with a glue dot. Adhere the flower on top with a dimensional. Make a bow with the Whisper White crinkle ribbon and tuck it under the flower with a glue dot.

Stampin’ Up! Botanical Prints Product Medley Cards

Good Morning! Today I’m sharing a pair of sweet cards designed for our Inkin’ Krew Team Meeting last month using the Stampin’ Up! Botanical Prints Product Medley. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

The Stampin’ Up! Botanical Prints Product Medley is the latest in the series and it includes stamps, dies, designer series paper, embellishments and die cut and laser cut accent sheets. Stampin’ Up! provides the list of coordinating colors so you can use the cardstock and ink that is already in your stash to express your creativity with all the coordinating items.

Adhere the Whisper White panel to the Old Olive panel and pop it on a Terracotta Tile card base with dimensionals. Color the leaves in the Terracotta Tile DSP with Light Old Olive Stampin’ Blend and the flower centers with Dark Daffodil Delight. Adhere it to the Old Olive mat and then to the card front with liquid glue. Stamp the flower cluster from the Stampin’ Up! Botanical Prints Product Medley stamp set twice with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Whisper White and cut them out with the coordinating die. Color the leaves with Light Old Olive and the flower centers with Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin Blends.

Stamp the sentiment on one of the fancy laser cut labels in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Cut out 3 sets of leaf clusters from Old Olive card stock. Arrange the die cut flowers and leaves and adhere them with liquid glue. Adhere the label with dimensionals and finish the front with clear rhinestone gems.

Stamp the berry cluster from the Stampin’ Up! Botanical Prints Product Medley in Highland Heather ink on the top of a Highland Heather card base. Adhere the tile patterned DSP from Botanical Prints DSP to the Old Olive mat and then to the Highland Heather card base with liquid glue. Stamp the sentiment on a Whisper White panel and cut it out with the largest oval from the Stitched Shapes Dies.

Stamp the berries on a Whisper White panel and color them with Highland Heather, Light So Saffron and Light Old Olive Stampin’ Blends. Cut them out with the coordinating die and pop them on the oval with dimensionals. Pop the oval on the card base with dimensionals and accent with three rhinestone gems.

For the inside of the Terracotta Tile card, stamp the floral image from the Stampin’ Up! Botanical Prints Product Medley in two corners of a Whisper White panel in Terracotta Tile ink and adhere it to the inside of the card. Stamp the floral image on the corner of a Whisper White Medium envelope to match.

For the inside of the Highland Heather card, stamp the berries from the Stampin’ Up! Botanical Prints Product Medley on the lower corner of a Whisper White panel. Adhere it to an Old Olive mat and then to the inside of the card with liquid glue.

The lifelike images of the flowers and fruits in the Stampin’ Up! Botanical Prints Product Medley are reminiscent of antique botanical prints and make elegant and pretty cards with an updated and modern feel.

Stampin’ Up! Painted Poppies Thank You Card for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Morning! Welcome to another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! I made a pretty thank you card for today’s hop using the beautiful Stampin’ Up! Painted Poppies bundle along with the Peaceful Poppies designer series paper.

We have a color challenge this week, and here is the pretty color palette we are using:

My card layout was inspired by the pretty sketch in the TGIF Challenges blog, #TGIFC255 Sketch Challenge. Here is their sketch:

I cut a strip of the striped Peaceful Poppies designer series paper and adhered it to the side of a Blackberry Bliss panel with snail. I cut three of the bubble border dies from the Painted Labels dies in Blackberry Bliss card stock and adhered them together. I adhered them to the back of the floral panel of Peaceful Poppies DSP and then trimmed the ends. I adhered the panel to the Blackberry bliss panel so that it overlapped the striped paper.

I stamped the Thank You sentiment from the Peaceful Moments stamp set on a strip of Old Olive in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I used the large label die from the Merry Christmas Dies to cut out the sentiment. I stamped the small poppy and three leaves from the Stampin’ Up! Painted Poppies stamp set on a Whisper White panel in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I colored them with the Poppy Parade and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends and cut them out with the coordinating dies from the Painted Labels dies.

I adhered the label and leaves to the floral background with multipurpose liquid glue and adhered the poppy with dimensionals. I adhered the decorated panel to a Pool Party card base and finished of the front with rhinestones colored with the dark Blackberry Bliss Stampin’ Blend.

I stamped the small poppy and two leaves from the Stampin’ Up! Painted Poppies cling stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a Whisper White panel. I used a mask to stamp the leaves after I stamped the flower. I colored the leaves with the Old Olive Stampin’ Blends and the flower with the Poppy Parade Stampin Blends. I trimmed the bottom with a strip of the floral Peaceful Poppies DSP and adhered it to the inside of the card.

Stampin’ Up! Witty-cisms for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Morning! Welcome to another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! Today I made a cheerful thank you card using the fun Stampin’ Up! Witty-cisms cling stamp set along with the bright Dinoroar designer series paper.

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

Who would have thought you could mix dinosaurs with strawberries? But this pretty paper in the Dinoroar designer series paper pack was so bright and cheerful and it reminded me of my old kitchen wallpaper, so I thought it would be perfect with strawberries! So I cut a panel and adhered it to a Lovely Lipstick card base with multipurpose liquid glue.

I stamped the strawberry thank you image from the Stampin’ Up! Witty-cisms cling stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a panel of Whisper White and colored it with the Lovely Lipstick and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends. I made a highlight in the center of the berry with the Stampin’ Blends Color Lifter. Then I cut it out with the second largest circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies. I cut a scalloped circle with the Layering Circles Dies from Pretty Peacock and adhered it to the back with snail. I punched four leaf clusters from Old Olive card stock with the Leaf Punch.

I stamped four little flowers from the Sale-A-Bration Thoughtful Blooms stamp set in stamped-off Smoky Slate ink on Whisper White. I punched them out with the Sale-A-Bration Small Bloom Punch. I curled the petals of three flowers with the large ball in the Take Your Pick tool and my mouse pad. I turned the flower upside down and rolled little circles in each petal until it puffed out. Then I turned it right side up and pressed in the center. I finished off the centers with a Pineapple Punch enamel dot. I arranged the leaf clusters and adhered them to the card front with multipurpose liquid glue. I adhered the layered circle with dimensionals and finally stuck on each flower with a glue dot.

For the inside of the card, I adhered the last leaf cluster to a Whisper White panel with multipurpose liquid glue. I added a strip of the colorful Dinoroar DSP to the bottom and added the last flower. I cut a small circle of Pineapple Punch card stock with the large flower die from the Sending Flowers Dies and adhered it to the center of the flower. I think if I had a 1/8″ or 1/4″ hole punch, I would have used it instead, but I made the best of what I had available. Finally I stamped and colored another strawberry from the Stampin’ Up! Witty-cisms stamp set and my Old Olive and Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Blends. I fussy cut the strawberry and adhered it next to the flower. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card with snail.

The Stampin’ Up! Witty-cisms cling stamp set has fun images mixed with punny sentiments to create light hearted cards for different occasions.
