I cut a panel of Calypso Coral Dandy Garden designer series paper and adhered it to a Whisper White mat and then to the front of a Mossy Meadow card base.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Dragonfly Garden stamp set in Mossy Meadow on a Whisper White panel and stamped the wildflower image twice in Memento Tuxedo Black. I colored the flowers with Calypso Coral, Mossy Meadow, Purple Posy, Mango Melody, Soft Suede and Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends. I adhered the panel to a Calypso Coral mat.

I wrapped some of the new Mossy Meadow braided linen trim around the panel and tied a knot. I popped the panel on the card front with dimensionals and accented the image with three adhesive sequins.

I stamped the small dragonflies from the Stampin’ Up! Dragonfly Garden stamp set in Calypso Coral in the top corner and stamped the wildflower image on the side of a Whisper White panel. I colored the flowers the same as the flowers on the card front and trimmed the bottom of the panel with the same Dandy Garden DSP as the card front.

Stampin’ Up! Life Is Beautiful Thinking of You

Good Morning! Today I have another card made with the pretty Stampin’ Up! Life Is Beautiful photopolymer stamp set. Today’s card is a Thinking Of You card and is set in a night scene with Snowflake Splendor designer series paper and accented with white embossing. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

Stamp the tree from the Stampin’ Up! Life Is Beautiful stamp set in Gray Granite ink on a panel of Snowflake Splendor designer series paper. This is one of the sheets in the pack that has few snowflakes, but it does have pretty watercolor shading in Misty Moonlight and Balmy Blue, so I thought it would make a nice nighttime background. Mask off the birds and stamp the birdhouse in Gray Granite.

Stamp the snowflakes from the Stampin’ Up! Life Is Beautiful stamp set in Versamark ink across the tree top, sprinkle it with white embossing powder and heat set. Stamp the ground in Versamark ink and heat emboss it in white as well. Adhere the panel to a Whisper White mat and wrap a length of Snowflake Splendor ribbon around the panel and secure it in the back. Adhere the panel to the front of a Misty Moonlight card base with dimensionals.

Stamp the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Life Is Beautiful stamp set in Misty Moonlight ink on a Whisper White panel. Stamp the snowflakes on the label after stamping off. Cut it out with the die from the Tasteful Labels Dies and adhere it to the card front with dimensionals. Finish the card front with Blue Adhesive-Backed gems.

Mask off the birds and stamp the birdhouse in Gray Granite ink on a Whisper White panel. Stamp more snowflakes in the corner after stamping off. Trim the bottom with a strip of Snowflake Splendor DSP and adhere the panel to the inside of the card.

The tree in the Stampin’ Up! Life Is Beautiful stamp set is really pretty with it’s gentle curves. And the stamp set comes with different images that you can stamp the tree tops with, so it’s great for making trees for any season. And the sentiments are great too.

Stampin’ Up! Press On Good Day Card

Good Morning! Today I’m sharing a card that I made for World Card Making Day with the Stampin’ Up! Press On stamp set. This is a cute stamp set and is perfect for making coffee themed cards for coffee lovers with sentiments expressing thanks, encouragement and sending well wishes. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

Make the cup using paper piecing techniques, stamping the In Good Taste designer series papers with the Stampin’ Up! Press On coffee cup in Early Espresso ink. Cut the pieces out with paper snips and adhere them to a coffee cup stamped on Whisper White and fussy cut. Top the cup with a lid fussy cut from Whisper White.

Cut a Whisper White panel with the third largest Stitched So Sweetly scalloped rectangle die and stamp the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Press On cling stamp set in Crumb Cake ink. Adhere the cup with dimensionals. Add a silver metallic pearl.

Adhere the strip of wood grained In Good Taste DSP to the panel of stone tile DSP and adhere it to the front of an Early Espresso card base. Wrap Linen thread around the seam twice and make a bow near the bottom of the card. Stamp the coffee beans from the Stampin’ Up! Press On stamp set in Early Espresso on the stone tiles and Pop the coffee cup panel on the card front with dimensionals.

Stamp part of the cups from the Stampin’ Up! Press On stamp set in Early Espresso ink on a Whisper White panel. Color the cups with Misty Moonlight, Crumb Cake and Gray Granite Stampin’ Blends.

Stampin’ Up! Tasteful Touches for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Morning! Welcome to another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! For today’s hop, I made a card with the elegant Stampin’ Up! Tasteful Touches bundle and the Gilded Autumn specialty designer series paper to share. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock.

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

I embossed a Cajun Craze panel with the Bricks & Mortar 3D embossing folder and adhered it to the front of a Cajun Craze card base. I cut a panel of the Mint Macaroon paper from the Subtles 6″ x 6″ designer series paper pack with a die from the Stitched Rectangles Dies and adhered it to an Early Espresso mat. I used the same die to cut a panel of Gilded Autumn specialty designer series paper and adhered it on top.

I cut a panel of the striped Gilded Autumn specialty designer series paper with the long curvy label die from the Tasteful Labels Dies in the Stampin’ Up! Tasteful Touches bundle and adhered two leaf sprigs from the Forever Gold laser cut specialty paper with dots of liquid glue. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Tasteful Touches cling stamp set in versamark ink and heat embossed it with gold embossing powder. I adhered the embossed label to the striped label and accented it with a Gilded gem and gold trim bow.

I applied Stampin’ Seal to the layered die cut DSP panel and wound a length of Mint Macaron Basketweave ribbon, making a Z and trimming the ends. I adhered the label over the ribbon with dimensionals and popped the layered panel to the embossed card front with dimensionals.

I stamped the leaf and grill images from the Stampin’ Up! Tasteful Touches stamp set in Cajun Craze and Mint Macaron inks on a Very Vanilla panel. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The rich colors of the Gilded Autumn specialty designer series paper make any fall card special. When paired with the beautiful images in the Stampin’ Up! Tasteful Touches stamp set and touches of gold, your card becomes extra special!

Stampin’ Up! Field of Flowers Thinking of You Card

Good Morning! Today I have a Thinking of You Card note card made with the Stampin’ Up! Field of Flowers stamp bundle. This bundle consists of the sweet Field of Flowers photopolymer stamp set and the Confetti Flowers Border Punch. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I used my sponge brayer to spread some Old Olive ink on the bottom of an Artistry Blooms designer series paper panel. I wanted to make the bottom look like grass – it was originally light blue and I thought the top looked like an evening sky, so I wanted it to fade to green. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Field of Flowers photopolymer stamp set in Versamark ink on the top of the DSP panel and sprinkled it with white embossing powder. I heat set it until it was shiny and adhered the panel to a Sahara Sand mat.

I stamped the grasses from the Stampin’ Up! Field of Flowers stamp set in Old Olive ink on a strip of Pool Party. I used the sponge brayer to add some Old Olive ink to the bottom of the grasses. I stamped the dragonflies in Misty Moonlight. I stamped the flowers in Rich Razzleberry ink on Rick Razzleberry card stock and punched them out with the Confetti Flowers Punch. I adhered them to the stamped panel.

I cut a panel of Old Olive card stock with the leafy border die from the Birds & More Dies. I adhered the stamped panel to the top and adhered it to the DSP panel. I wrapped it twice with Linen Thread and tied a bow. I stamped the thinking of you sentiment in Old Olive ink on a strip of Whisper White. I trimmed it close with my paper snips and adhered it to the DSP panel. I adhered the DSP panel to the front of a Misty Moonlight card base with dimensionals.

I stamped the grasses from the Stampin’ Up! Field of Flowers stamp set in Old Olive ink on the bottom of a Whisper White panel and bartered some Old Olive ink on the bottom. I stamped the dragonflies on the panel along with the my friend sentiment in Misty Moonlight ink. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Field of Flowers bundle is really sweet with it’s grassy stamp and little flowers, and wonderful sentiments. And I really love how the sponge brayer gently filled in the spaces between the grasses giving the stamped image depth! Click on the picture below to get the details in my Online Store.
