Stampin’ Up! Hearts Humming Along for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hey y’all – it’s Thursday, so it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!!  Today’s a sketch challenge – and I’m excited to see what everyone comes up with!  I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop.

I decided to play with the beautiful flower in the new Humming Along stamp set and added a delicate heart die cut from the Be Mine Stitched Framelits, then set it atop a little Botanical Butterfly DSP.  Take a look-see:

Here’s the sketch we had to play with!

And I decided to go pink-and-white for the Cupcake Inspiration Challenge!

I started with some black and white paper from the Sale-A-Bration freebie – Botanical Butterfly DSP and matted it on Flirty Flamingo for the card front.

For the art, I stamped the big, bold flower from the Humming Along stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a square of Whisper White.  I colored the flower – just the flower, not the leaves – with my Dark and Light Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blends.  I also used my Dark and Light Calypso Coral Blends – to add depth to the center of the flower.

I matted the panel on Flirty Flamingo and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

Next up is a pretty heart cut with the Be Mine Stitched Framelits from Petal Pink card stock.  I adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I stamped the sentiment from Humming Along in Flirty Flamingo on Whisper White and cut it with a Rectangle Stitched Framelits die.  I added a couple of Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and used them to wind some Rose Metallic Thread around several times.

I popped the sentiment over the heart and then added a Petal Pink Frosted Flower – to which I added a Share What You Love Artisan Pearl and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added several leaves from Humming Along in Tuxedo Black to a Whisper White panel.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Flirty Flamingo mat and into my Petal Pink card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got a few Humming Along leaves on the front…

…and more of the Botanical Butterfly DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I really really love the pink/white/black color scheme, don’t you!?  That beautiful Humming Along flower – pretty sure it’s a petunia? – is perfect for it, don’t you think?!  Perfectly paired with a pretty petite heart from the Be Mine Stitched Framelits!  I hope you like!

Select Sale-A-Bration Items Available While Supplies Last

Redemption numbers for the following Sale-A-Bration products have exceeded our forecast and are continuing strong. Our inventory for these popular items is not yet completely depleted, but we wanted you to be aware that they are going fast and may not be available through the entire Sale-A-Bration period.  That means – if you love these goodies, get a $50 order in (before shipping and tax) quick as you can and pick them now as your free SAB item!!

Grapefruit Grove & Lovely Lipstick Foil Sheets (item 149712)

Precious Parcel Card Kit (item 149750)

Reminder!  The Sale-A-Bration freebie – Organdy Ribbon Pack – is currently not available to order!

It was wildly popular and we depleted our supply WAY faster than anticipated – creating a lot of backorders!   We have a shipment coming in to fulfill backorders, but unfortunately, this initial shipment will help us fulfill only orders that have already been placed. Once backorders have been fulfilled, a second shipment will arrive at the beginning of March, which will allow us to turn on this item again; it will be available while supplies last only.

1/8″ Circle Punch Availability

Stampin’ Up! posted this update this morning.

We’ve been notified by the manufacturer of our 1/8″ Circle Punch (item 134365) that they will no longer be able to produce this item. As a result, this item will no longer be available for purchase after June 3, 2019, or once our inventory is depleted—whichever happens first.


Thank you for understanding.

  1. So pretty Mary! Love your flower and the lacy heart under your sentiment is perfect! 🙂

  2. Oh, yes…I like…a lot!

  3. Elisha Smith

    Gorgeous card! I just love the way Stampin Up’s colors and embellishments blend so beautifully! Well done!

    • stampsnlingers

      Yea – those Blends are wonderful! Thanks very much, Elisha! 🙂

  4. Ishani

    What a beautiful card! That hibiscus is colored so well and the inside of the card looks lovely too. Thank you for playing at Cupcake Inspirations Challenge. Hugs ~ Ishani

    • stampsnlingers

      Thanks so much, Ishani – appreciate you stopping by! 🙂

  5. Maryanne Willequer

    Very pretty card, Mary! But the large flower is a bouginvilla, not a petunia!

    • stampsnlingers

      Hmmm. Okay – I’ll have to take your word for that one! Thanks much, Maryanne! 🙂

  6. Susan K

    Love the way you colored the flower but not the leaves so that color popped out. Guess that flower can be whatever you want to call it–when it is that pertty, no one cares! (I’d vote for hibiscus 🌺)

    • stampsnlingers

      Hibiscus. Yep – could definitely be THAT, too! Hmmm. Thanks very much, Susan! 🙂

  7. Love how you used the heart die as the detail behind the sentiment. Love the black and white with pops of color.

  8. The lacy heart is beautiful and the flower is so pretty.
