Stampin’ Up! Season of Chic for the Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Good morning! Welcome to the August Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop! The theme for this month’s hop is “Fall Frenzy” and I am using the pretty Stampin’ Up! Season of Chic bundle with the sweet Sale-A-Bration Rings of Love designer series paper for a Fall Thinking of You card. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I adhered a panel of the pretty fall leaves Rings of Love designer series paper to a Poppy Parade mat with liquid glue and adhered it to the front of a Crushed Curry card base with dimensionals.

I inked up the leaf from the Stampin’ Up! Season of Chic photopolymer stamp set in Poppy Parade, stamped off on scratch paper and stamped it on a Basic White panel. I cut it out with the background leaf die from the Chic dies that come in the bundle and adhered a detailed Poppy Parade die cut leaf on top with liquid glue. I used the detailed leaf die to cut leaves from Soft Succulent and So Saffron and adhered all three leaves to the card front with glue dots.

I used the acorn and acorn cap dies from the Tree Rings Dies Hybrid Embossing folder set to cut the acorns from Crumb Cake and Soft Suede card stock and adhered them to the card front with glue dots.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Season of Chic stamp set in Soft Suede ink on Crushed Curry card stock. I cut it out with the die from the Painted Labels dies and adhered it to the card with dimensionals. I tied a short length of window pane check ribbon in a knot and adhered it with a glue dot. I finished the card with rustic metallic dots.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the leaves from the Stampin’ Up! Season of Chic Stamp set in stamped off Evening Evergreen and Crushed Curry in the corner of a Basic White panel. I trimmed the bottom with a strip of the pretty Rings of Love DSP before adhering it to the inside of the card.

The Sale-A-Bration Rings of Love designer series paper is so pretty with gorgeous colors and designs that go with so many stamp sets, such as today’s Stampin’ Up! Season of Chic. And you can get it free with a $50 order (before shipping and taxes) through the end of the month during Sale-A-Bration.

Stampin’ Up! Ringed With Nature Get Well Card

Good Morning! The Rings Of Love designer series paper is a pretty pack of patterned paper that you can get for FREE with an order of $50 (before shipping and taxes) during Sale-A-Bration! It goes well with the awesome new Stampin’ Up! Ringed With Nature bundle from the new Mini Catalog and I used them both for today’s card. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I adhered a panel of the pretty Rings of Love designer series paper to a Poppy Parade mat, wrapped it with a length of Evening Evergreen ribbon and made a bow. I adhered it to the front of a Soft Suede card base. The Stampin’ Up! Ringed With Nature bundle comes with the awesome Tree Rings Hybrid embossing folder which combines embossing and die cutting. You have the embossing folder with the branch cross sections (wood rings) and the dies which fit into the folder and it cuts out the rings at the same time! So I cut/embossed Soft Suede and Crumb Cake panels and adhered them together to make a cross section of a sawed tree branch, with the wood rings in the center and bark on the outside! It’s so cool!!

I used the largest cut on the Tree Rings Hybrid Embossing folder to make my wood ring and adhered it to the card front with glue dots next to the bow. I die cut mushroom stems from Crumb Cake and sponged Crumb Cake ink on them to darken them and I cut mushroom Caps from Crushed Curry, Parakeet Party and Poppy Parade. I adhered two mushrooms with glue dots and the last one with dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Ringed With Nature photopolymer stamp set in Poppy Parade ink on a Basic White panel. I cut the sentiment out with the small Seasonal Labels die and adhered it to the card with dimensionals. I finished the card with three rustic metallic dots.

For the inside of the card, I trimmed the bottom of a Basic White panel with a strip of the Rings of Love DSP and adhered a Poppy Parade and Crumb Cake mushroom with the Stampin’ Up! Ringed With Nature bundle. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card with Stampin’ Seal.

The Stampin’ Up! Ringed With Nature bundle is really neat with lots of different images and wonderful sentiments and especially the awesome Tree Rings Hybrid embossing folder.

Stampin’ Up! Potted Geraniums Thank You Card

Good Morning! I love geraniums and when I saw the Stampin’ Up! Potted Geraniums bundle in the annual catalog, I knew I wanted it. I finally pulled it out for today’s card, pairing it with the pretty Sale-A-Bration Rings of Love designer series paper and I hope you like it as much as I do! You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I adhered a panel of Rings of Love designer series paper to the front of a Crumb cake card base with liquid glue. I embossed a panel of Balmy Blue with the Pretty Posies 3D embossing folder and adhered it to a Crumb Cake mat.

I wanted to make my flowers Poppy Parade and my stems Old Olive, but I wanted different shades of each color. So I decided to try something different – I colored a Basic White panel with Stampin’ Blends, making blotches large enough to get my die cuts as pictured above. This gave me a mottled texture look in different shades of the colors I wanted.

After coloring my blotches, I cut the background flower die from the light Poppy Parade blotch and the detailed flower die from the dark Poppy Parade blotch. I cut the large stem from the dark Old Olive blotch and the background leaves from the light Old Olive blotch. I adhered the die cuts together with dots of liquid glue and adhered the stems to the embossed panel with liquid glue.

I wrapped a length of white Baker’s Twine around the panel and tied a bow. I adhered the flowers with dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Potted Geraniums stamp set in Soft Suede on a Basic White panel and cut it out with the small Stylish Shapes banner die. I adhered it to the panel with dimensionals and adhered the embossed panel to the card front with dimensionals. I finished it with brass butterflies.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the flower label pick from the Stampin’ Up! Potted Geraniums in Crumb Cake in the corner of a Basic White panel. I stamped a dirt mound in Soft Suede and the sentiment in Poppy Parade. I trimmed the bottom with a strip of Rings of Love DSP and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

I plant geraniums by my mailbox every spring and they do well whether or not we get much rain. And I always plant the traditional red-orange ones, that’s why I had to use Poppy Parade for today’s card. They bring a cheerful and colorful welcome to my driveway! If you also like geraniums, you have to check out the Stampin’ Up! Potted Geraniums bundle!
