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

Good Morning! Welcome to another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! I just put out some purple mums by my front door and I wanted to pull out the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Style bundle so I could color it to match my mums. Then I saw that the our theme for this week is ‘Plaid’ and I thought that the plaid and flowers would be perfect together! This is what I came up with.

We have a theme challenge this week, and here is the theme we are using for our projects:

Emboss a Rich Razzleberry panel with the Ornate Floral 3D embossing folder and adhere it to the front of a Rich Razzleberry card base. Cut a Terracotta Tile panel with the Ornate Layers Die and adhere a panel of Plaid Tidings designer series paper to the front. Adhere the layered die cut to the front of the card. Cut and embossed three leaves from the Nature’s Roots dies in Bumblebee and adhere them to the bottom of the panel. Cut some branches from the Forever Gold Laser Cut specialty paper and adhere them to the top of the leaves.

Stamp the bouquet from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Style cling stamp set in Early Espresso ink on a Whisper White panel. Color it with Rich Razzleberry, Mossy Meadow, Mango Melody, Granny Apple Green, Calypso Coral and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends. Fussy cut the image and brush clear Wink of Stella on the flowers.

Adhere the flowers to the card front with dimensionals. Stamp the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Blossoms in Bloom stamp set in Early Espresso ink on a strip of Terracotta Tile and cut it out with the long small die from the Stitched Rectangles Dies. Adhere it to the bottom of the card with liquid glue and dimensionals. Accent the card front with Gilded Gems and a Terracotta Tile bow.

Stamp the sentiment from the Sending Sunshine stamp set in Rich Razzleberry ink on a Whisper White panel. Stamp the flower from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Style Stamp set in Early Espresso ink next to the sentiment and color it with Mango Melody, Granny Apple Green and Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blends. Cut a strip of Terracotta Tile with the Ornate Borders die and adhere a strip of Plaid Tidings DSP to the bottom. Adhere it to the bottom of the Whisper White panel and adhere the panel to the inside of the card.

The rich fall colors and the plaid give a different look to the beautiful flowers from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Style stamp set, that is perfect for this time of year. So if you’ve got this bundle, pull it out and have fun creating a fall card! Oh, and the pretty Plaid Tidings designer series paper is on sale for 15% off!

Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Morning! Welcome to another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! The beautiful leaf cluster stamps and dies in the Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern bundle are wonderful in all the different shades of green. But I have been impressed by the Fall take on these leaves and have wanted to use them in different colors. We have a color challenge in our Blog Hop today and its the perfect occasion to use these stamps in different colors. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

Like I said we have a color challenge this week, and here is the color palette we are using. Be sure to check out all the pretty projects in the Blog Hop!

I started by stamping six leaves in the Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern cling stamp set in Pretty Peacock, Cajun Craze and Blackberry Bliss ink on Whisper White after stamping off once. I cut them out with the coordinating die. I embossed a Whisper White panel with the Tasteful Textile embossing folder and adhered it to a Whisper White mat.

I punched three small leaf clusters from the Forever Gold Laser Cut specialty designer series paper and cut two Forever Flourishing dies from Cajun Craze card stock. I arranged them with the stamped and die cut leaves on the embossed panel. I adhered them with liquid glue and added a piece of dimensional behind the tops of the small Blackberry Bliss leaves in the front to add dimension. I wrapped a length of Vanilla ribbon around the bottom of the arrangement securing it in the back and tied a piece of gold cord around the ribbon making a bow on the side.

I stamped the birthday sentiment from the Best Year stamp set in Versamark Ink on a Whisper White panel and sprinkled it with gold embossing powder. I heat set the powder until it was shiny and cut it out with the Tasteful Labels die. I popped it on the panel with dimensionals and adhered the panel to the front of a Pretty Peacock card base with dimensionals. I finished the card front with three clear Wonderful Gems.

I stamped the sentiment from the Best Year stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a Whisper White panel. I stamped some leaves in Pretty Peacock and Cajun Craze on the top and bottom of the panel and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

So I got all five Challenge colors in the card along with some touches of gold. I’m really impressed that these leaves are also so beautiful in these colors!

Stampin’ Up! Ornate Style Note Tote

Good Morning! Today I have another project using products from the beautiful new Ornate Garden Suite in combination with the Dressed to Impress Suite. It’s a note tote! I made the sweet little tote bag from the All Dressed Up Dies out of Ornate Garden specialty designer series paper and stuffed it with four 3×3 note cards and envelopes from the Best Dressed Note Cards and Envelopes. The colors go well together and it is way too cute! You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I made the All Dressed Up tote in a Sunday afternoon Facebook Live video tutorial and you can see the post here. I made today’s tote in the same way using the Ornate Garden specialty designer series paper – and this sheet has gold foil flowers on the inside – but used Terracotta Tile buttons instead of buckles. I used Early Espresso for the handles and So Saffron for the pocket which I decorated with the small flower cluster from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Style cling stamp set and a fussy cut single flower. The single flower is stamped in Early Espresso on Whisper White and colored with Calypso Coral, Flirty Flamingo and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends. It is finished with a Metallic Gold pearl to match the gold foil flowers inside the tote.

The Daffodil Delight note cards from the Best Dressed 3×3 Note Cards and Envelopes are perfect to go in the tote and they match the Ornate Garden DSP pretty well. I stamped the daisy flower from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Style stamp set on four note cards in Early Espresso ink. I also stamped the daisy on the pretty coordinating printed envelopes in Early Espresso ink. I colored each note card flower center with Calypso Coral Stampin’ Write marker and the leaves with the Old Olive Stampin’ Write marker. I did not use Stampin’ Blends because they would have bled through the back and I wanted to keep the cards to a single layer. Do you like how the printed watercolor splash makes the petals look yellow?

I stamped the bottom of each note card with a different saying from the Ornate Thanks photopolymer stamp set in Early Espresso ink. This way you have a coordinating set of note cards that can be used for different occasions! Actually, I stamped the sentiments first so that I could position the flower appropriately relative to the sentiment.

This project really shows off the versatility of all the different sentiments in the Ornate Thanks stamp set and how well this suite can be combines with other Stampin’ Up! products. And I can think of at least one bag in my closet that looks like this one. Unfortunately, it doesn’t have gold foil in the lining.

Stampin’ Up! Ornate Style Friendship Card Video Tutorial

Good Morning! On Saturday we had our Inkin’ Krew Ornate Garden Facebook Event where we shared lots of projects made with the new Stampin’ Up! Ornate Garden Suite. Did you get a chance to tune in? We had several Facebook Live video tutorials and I shared the tutorial for this card. I used the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Style bundle along with the Ornate Garden specialty designer series paper and the Grace’s Garden and Daisy Lane stamp sets. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

Unfortunately I can’t link to the Facebook video ☹️, but it is on my YouTube Channel and you can view it here.

I stamped the sentiment from the Grace’s Garden photopolymer stamp set in Early Espresso ink on a small panel of So Saffron vellum. Be careful because the ink will take longer to dry on the vellum and will be easy to smear if you handle it too early, so I put it aside to let it dry. Using the Leaf Punch, I punched a leaf cluster from Old Olive card stock. I stamped three of the small petal clusters from the Daisy Lane cling stamp set with So Saffron ink after stamping off. I cut them out with the Medium Daisy Punch. I gently curved the petals on the daisies with my fingers, curving the bottom layer up, the top layer down and the middle layer alternating up and down. I adhered the layers with a dot of multipurpose liquid in the center and topped it off with a large gold faceted gem.

I cut the fancy frame from the Ornate Layers Dies from Terracotta Tile card stock. After cleaning the gazillion little pieces that were cut out – this is such an ornate frame and I love it! – I aligned the 3rd smallest of the Stitched Rectangles Dies in the center and cut out the center. I love how these dies leave a stitched edge on both the inside and outside! With the frame ready, I began to assemble my card base.

I adhered a panel of the Ornate Garden specialty designer series paper to a Terracotta Tile card base with multipurpose liquid glue. I adhered the frame to the vellum with pieces of dimensionals. The dimensionals on the side will extend beyond the vellum to adhere it to the card base, but the top and bottom won’t, so I added a strip of multipurpose liquid glue to the back of the vellum that is hidden by the frame. I adhered it to the card base. I adhered the leaf with multipurpose liquid glue and the flower with glue dots. I finished it off with a Terracotta Tile bow.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the little flourish from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Style cling stamp set in Early Espresso ink at the top of a Whisper White panel. I added a strip of the Ornate Garden specialty DSP to the bottom and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

Now, I have to admit that I did some surgery to my card after the video ended. In realtime, I stamped the sentiment too hight and crooked as you can see in the picture here. So I snipped the dimensionals behind the frame and trimmed the vellum (luckily it was just stuck down behind the frame. I then re-stamped the sentiment properly and re-attached the frame to the vellum and then adhered it to the card base. It looks much better and from the pictures above, I don’t think you can tell that it needed to be fixed!

I hope that you enjoyed the Inkin’ Krew Ornate Garden event if you got a chance to join it Saturday afternoon. And I hope you got a lot of inspiration and ideas on how you will use the products in the Ornate Garden Suite. If you didn’t, the group will still be there and you can check out the postings and watch the videos on replay. Here is the link to the group where you can join and we will get you approved as soon as we can: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1833741716756137/. Now to end my post with a better picture…

Stampin’ Up! Ornate Style Get Well Card

Good Morning! In preparation for tomorrow’s Inkin Krew Ornate Garden Facebook Event, I have a card today using the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Style stamp bundle in combination with the get well sentiment from the Timeless Tulips 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 cut an panel of the Mint Macaron background Ornate Garden specialty designer series paper with the large frame die from the Ornate Layers Dies and sponged the edge with Sahara Sand ink to give it a distressed look. I adhered it to a Mint Macaron card base with multipurpose liquid glue. I stamped the large floral bouquet from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Style stamp set in Early Espresso ink on a Whisper White panel. I colored it with Rococo Rose, So Saffron, Old Olive, Dark Mango Melody and Bronze Stampin’ Blends. I colored the background with the light Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blend using a circular motion to give it a mottled look and cut out the panel with a Stitched Rectangle Die.

I adhered the floral panel to an Early Espresso mat with multipurpose liquid glue and then to the card front with dimensionals. I stamped the get well soon sentiment from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in VersaMark Ink on a strip of Early Espresso card stock. I sprinkled it with gold embossing powder and heat set until it was shiny. I trimmed the end and trimmed the end of a strip of the gold foil Mint Macaron paper from the Ornate Garden DSP. I adhered the two strips together with multipurpose liquid glue and adhered them to the card front.

I made a bow with the new Mint Macaron ribbon and adhered it with glue dots and finished the card front with three gold faceted gems.

I decorated the inside by stamping the little flower from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Style stamp set in Early Espresso ink in the corner of a Whisper White panel. I colored it with So Saffron, Old Olive and Dark Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends. I added a strip of the Ornate Garden specialty designer series paper on the bottom and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Ornate Style cling stamp set comes bundled with the Ornate Layers Dies at a 10% discount. This bundle is one of the items in the Ornate Garden Early Release and will be in the new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.
