Stampin’ Up! Plaid Love of Leaves 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 theme/inspiration challenge – and I’m excited to see what everyone brings to the table!  I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop today!

So – the other day, I saw a card made by the Queen-of-Clean, Mary Fish.  And I absolutley fell in love with it – to the point where I simply had to make it for myself.  I thunked and I thunked on how to change it up – to make it more mine – but…there was no changing her perfectly perfect design.  So – I decided to use the same Love of Leaves with the amazeballs Stitched Leaves Dies and Plaid Tidings DSP – just like she did.  Take a look-see:

Can you tell what our theme is?

It would appear that I selected…leaves! 🙂

And this is the perfect card for this week’s Just Us Girls Trend challenge.

I decided that I’d use some Whisper White Note Cards & Envelopes for the bases of my card.  And…that I’d make a stack of them – I’m always needing thank you cards – so…that’s how I went.

I started with a piece of Plaid Tidings 6″ x 6″ DSP that I adhered directly to the front of the Note Card.

From a slightly smaller panel of Whisper White, I cut the large Stitched Leaves leaf die, using my new Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine.  I ran the card stock thru with the stitch-embossing die in the middle of the cutting die.

I adhered the panel to the card front with Liquid Glue.  In hindsight – and this is what YOU should consider when you make this for yourself – this would have been the perfect time to use the Adhesive Sheets.  As it was – I just made sure to get each little leaf point glued up. 🙂

I adhered the die cut leaf with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The sentiment, from the Love of Leaves set, is stamped in Whsiper White – in Cajun Craze, Bumble Bee or Misty Moonlight, depending on the card.  I used my Paper Snips to cut a just-the-right-size sentiment.

I tied a little Linen Bow and adhered it to the popped-up leaf with a Glue Dot.  Then I stuck another Glue Dot on top of the bow, and used it – and a Dimensional on the right side – I adhered the sentiment over the bow.

I used coordinating 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dots on the sentiment – and near the leaf cut out – and that finished off the cards.

On the inside – I didn’t add any more layers – I just stamped the large leaf image from Love of Leaves in the same color that I’d used on the sentiment…

You can see from the photos that I did the same leaf image on the front of my envelopes – and added the plaid to the envelope flaps.

So – I got six super-cute leafy-plaid thank you cards – and so can you!

And – if you need those six thank you notes for yourself, then you’re done!

BUT.

Maybe you need a sweet little gift?

If that’s the case, then you can decorate the front/top of a Mini Paper Pumpkin Box to coordinate with one of the cards!

I picked my fave color scheme – that plaid just gets me every time! – and decorated the top.  I added a second Love of Leaves sentiment in Misty Moonlight – and you can see that I used a Magenta Madness mat.  Other than that – the box is decorated in exactly the same way as the cards!

If I DO decide to gift this – I’ll stack the cards in the box with the “inspiration” card on top!

Et Voila!  I love love love this Love of Leaves Bundle…

…and I love how this design just shows off the Plaid Tidings 6″ x 6″ DSP to perfection. You could make gifts for all your friends and family – and use every gorgeous pattern!  You could even use the other small Love of Leaves sentiments on the front – mix and match!

What a fun gift, huh?

I hope you like – and will be thinking about all the cards you can make with the Love of Leaves bundle and Plaid Tidings 6″ x 6″DSP!

Good morning and happy Weekend!  Hope it’s looking like a good one for you – and for my friends on the east coast – I hope you’re safe AND have power back!  And…air conditioning! 🙁

It’s not my usual style – but…I like it anyway! And I think you will, too!  So – I hope you’ll join me.

Stampin’ Up! Press On Confidence and Coffee

Happy Happy HAWWWMP Day!!  Did y’all have fun ordering from the new catalog yestedray!?  It’s a darned good one – with so many cool new goodies it’s a little crazy.  How DO they keep coming up with such awesome stamp sets and papers and fun stuff?!?

I don’t know how they do it – but I’m SURE glad that they do.

And that I get a discount, cuzzzzzzz…. I NEED it!

My card today uses a new set for me – the fun Press On stamp set.  If you – or someone you know! – loves coffee, this is a stamp set you need in your tool box.  Take a look-see:

This one was built for the sketch side of the FUSION challenge this week but…I missed the deadline! 🙁

I started with some Very Vanilla card stock and I stamped the coffee cups from the Press On set in Early Espresso ink (seemed appropriate! ).  To make the “reversed” smaller mug – I stamped the image on a piece of acetate (from my old Stamp-A-Ma-Jig) then I quickly pressed the card stock on top.  When I picked it up – I had the reversed image!

I fussy cut the three cups with my Paper Snips.  I also stamped the images again on two different designs from the Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP – and snipped the coffee cup cozies.  These are adhered to “their” mugs with Liquid Glue.

I matted a piece of Very Vanilla on Cajun Craze for the card front, then matted a strip of Mint Macaron paper from Gilded Autumn, also on Cajun Craze.  I adhered the strip to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I used Glue Dots to wrap a length of 3/8″ Embroidered Ribbon around the strip.

On another piece of Very Vanilla, I stamped a sentiment from Press On in Cajun Craze and cut it with a Stitched So Sweetly rectangle die.  I adhered it over the ribbon with Liquid Glue.

I laid out my cups on the card front – tucking the smaller cups under the sentiment.  With all the cups in place, I stamped the “steam” sentiment from Press On in Early Espresso ink.

I adhered the small cups with Liquid Glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals – and the large middle cup with Dimensionals.

At that point, I decided I needed a “lid” – so I stamped the image again in Early Espresso on Very Vanilla and fussy cut just the lid.  I popped it onto the middle cup with Stampin’ Dimensionals – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a second sentiment from Press On in Cajun Craze on a Very Vanilla panel.  Across the bottom I adhered a Cajun Craze-matted stip of Gilded Autumn DSP.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Cajun Craze mat and into my Mint Macaron card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got some Cajun Craze hearts and Early Espresso coffee beans on the front…

…and more of the Gilded Autumn DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Now – Press On might have been another one of those “fly-over” sets for you – but it shouldn’t be!  It’s super cute (I LOVE the sentiment-in-steam image!!) and has some really great sentiments!

I hope you like – and will add this one to your list of gotta-get products!

Don’t forget about Double Peppermint Points – and to redeem your Bonus Days Coupons!! 🙂
