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

Good morning and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! Here is another card made with the beautiful Stampin’ Up! Season of Chic stamp bundle and the Texture Chic specialty designer series paper. Today I used the pretty floral motifs for a Thank You card. You can find the currently available supplies I used along with card stock cuts at the bottom of my post.

We have a fun theme challenge this week to use designer series paper! And I went all out with the gorgeous foils in the Texture Chic specialty DSP, the beautiful Distressed Gold paper and gold foil mats!

I adhered a panel of Texture Chic DSP to a gold foil mat and adhered it to the front of a Petal Pink card base with dimensionals. I adhered a strip of dotted Texture Chic DSP to a Gold Foil mat and adhered it to the card front with liquid glue and adhered a floral panel to a Soft Succulent mat that was popped on the card front with dimensionals.

I stamped the solid flower from the Stampin’ Up! Season of Chic stamp set in Mango Melody on Basic White and cut it out with the coordinating die. I cut the detailed large flower from Distressed Gold paper and adhered it to the stamped flower with liquid glue. I cut two small flowers from Blushing Bride and two leaves from Soft Succulent using the Chic dies.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Season of Chic stamp set in Soft Succulent on Basic White and cut it out with the large banner from the Stylish Shapes dies. I adhered the banner to the card front with glue dots and dimensionals. I adhered the leaves and die cut small flowers to the card front with glue dots and popped the large flower on with dimensionals, doubling one to get a smooth front. I finished with gold floral trinkets.

For the inside, I stamped the large detailed flower from the Stampin’ Up! Season of Chic stamp set in Mango Melody in the lower corner of a Basic White panel. I covered it with a mask and stamped the detailed leaves in Soft Succulent. I trimmed the bottom with a strip of Texture Chic specialty DSP and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Season of Chic bundle and Texture Chic specialty DSP are simply gorgeous and fun to play with. There are themes for all seasons, including shells, leaves and snowflakes in addition to the flowers I used, so it’s very versatile!

Stampin’ Up! Season Of Chic Thinking of You Card

Good Morning! The new Texture Chic Suite in the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog is so beautiful and unique. It has the Stampin’ Up! Season of Chic bundle with an eclectic set of stamps and dies with sea shell, flower, leaf and snowflake motifs along with different spatter and brushstroke stamps that encourages creativity. It also has the beautiful Texture Chic specialty designer series paper with touches of gold foil and the gorgeous Distressed Gold specialty paper. I used all three for today’s shell motif thinking of you card and 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 Texture Chic specialty designer series paper to a Gray Granite mat. I used a blending brushes to apply Gray Granite ink and Petal Pink ink to two spots on a Basic White panel. I stamped the shell from the Stampin’ Up! Season of Chic photopolymer stamp set to stamp over the blended spots, using Petal Pink over the Gray Granite spot and Mango Melody over the Petal Pink spot. I cut the shells out with the coordinating die.

I stamped another Pink shell on plain Basic White and cut it out with the coordinating die and cut a panel of Distressed Gold specialty paper with the large detailed shell die. I adhered the gold shell to the Petal Pink stamped shell with liquid glue. I die cut the two small detailed shells from Petal Pink card stock and traced the long shell outline on a Basic White scrap. I used a blending Brush to apply Petal Pink ink to the shell and stamped over it with the spatter stamp from the Stampin’ Up! Season of Chic stamp set and Mango Melody ink. I fussy cut the shell and adhered it to the back of my die cut Petal Pink shell.

I cut a vellum panel with the screen die from the Chic dies and colored the back with Gray Granite and Light Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends. I adhered the screen to the DSP panel with Stampin’ Seal across the middle and along the side. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Season of Chic stamp set in Gray Granite ink on Basic White and cut it out with the Stylish Shapes banner die. I adhered some gold shimmer ribbon to the DSP panel with Stampin’ Seal and adhered the label on top with glue dots. I used glue dots to adhere the two smaller shells and the plain larger shells. I adhered the layered distress gold shell with dimensionals and adhered the DSP panel to the front of a Petal Pink card base with dimensionals. I finished the card front with Polished Dots.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the shell from the Stampin’ Up! Season of Chic stamp set in Petal Pink and Gray Granite in the corners of a Basic White panel. I stamped the Spatter in Mango Melody and trimmed the bottom with a strip of Texture Chic specialty DSP. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card with Stampin’ Seal.

Here in the Northeast, it’s a big beach weekend with gorgeous weather, so the shells in the Stampin’ Up! Season of Chic stamp set make a perfect card for the times. The light woodgrain DSP with the shells make the perfect background for a sun bleached look. This was a fun card to make and I hope it inspires you for summertime fun.

Stampin’ Up! Vintage Tools Birthday Card

Good Morning! I love the new Stampin’ Up! Vintage Tools cling stamp set – it reminds me of the old tools that my Husband’s father left to him! It’s a great set for making masculine cards, especially for the handyman or wannabe handyman. I paired it with a rustic print in the pretty new Texture Chic specialty designer series paper 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 Texture Chic specialty designer series paper to a Basic Black mat with liquid glue and adhered it to the front of an Evening Evergreen card base with dimensionals.

I stamped the tools from the Stampin’ Up! Vintage Tools stamp set in Memento Tuxedo black ink on a Sahara Sand panel. I colored the tools with the light Gray Granite and light Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends and fussy cut the tools out with my paper snips. I stamped the sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on another Sahara Sand panel.

I adhered the fussy cut tools to the panel with liquid glue and stamped some vintage tacks over the screwdriver in Memento Tuxedo Black. I finished the panel with three rustic dots and adhered the panel to a Basic Black mat before adhering it to the card front.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Vintage Tools stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black on a Basic White panel. I stamped some more tacks in Memento Tuxedo Black and stamped the sentiment from the Cottage Rose stamp set in Evening Evergreen. I trimmed the bottom with a strip of Texture Chic specialty DSP and adhered the panel to the inside of the card with Stampin’ Seal.

I could also stamp the tools directly on the cardstock and color it, but it gives the card front a little dimension and texture. The panel of Texture Chic DSP reminded me antique boards, so I thought it would go well with the Stampin’ Up! Vintage Tools stamp set.
