Stampin’ Up! Silhouette Above The Clouds

Good morning!  We’re on the cusp of the weekend!  Hope you’ve got something fun planned.  Our friend is coming over tomorrow morning to get a refresher on feeding the ladies while we’re gone.

The list is pretty long for something so simple!

I might have some control issues…

I’ve been having a lot of fun with the new See A Silhouette DSP and today is no exception.  For this one, I pulled some swirly – blue – sky-like paper and added some hot air balloons from the Above The Clouds bundle.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one came from this week’s Paper Players sketch challenge.

And “Balloons” was the theme challenge over at the Global Design Project.

I started with the swirly blue paper from the See A Silhouette DSP and matted it on Mango Melody for the card front.

The vertical panel is a piece of Whisper White card stock.  Using the clouds image from Above The Clouds, I stamped the image three times in Balmy Blue.  I added Night of Navy bird silhouettes by the clouds.

On two more pieces of the See a Silhouette DSP, I stamped balloon images in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  Since I didn’t want colored borders (which I’d have gotten if I’d use the Hot Air Balloon Punch) – I fussy cut them – and then tidied up the lines with my Journaling Pen.

I adhered the balloons with Liquid Glue to the Whisper White panel.

I stamped the balloon basket in Balmy Blue (the “fill”) and Night of Navy (the wicker) on Whisper White and punched it with the Hot Air Balloon Punch – then adhered it under the bottom balloon with Liquid Glue.

The sentiment, from Above The Clouds, is stamped on a strip of Whisper White.  I bannerized it with my Paper Snips, edged it with my Balmy Blue Stampin’ Write Marker and adhered it with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added some more Night of Navy birds on the balloons themselves to give the card some depth.  Then I stamped more clouds in Balmy Blue on Whisper White and fussy cut them – and popped them over the balloons with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.  A few Frosted & Clear Epoxy Droplets finished off the card front.

On the inside, I stamped another balloon in Tuxedo Black on a Whisper White panel.  Inside it, I stamped a second Above The Clouds sentiment in Night of Navy.  Then I punched out a balloon from a Sticky Note using the Hot Air Balloon Punch and laid it over the balloon on the panel as a mask.  I stamped some more Balmy Blue clouds and Night of Navy birds.  When I picked up the sticky note mask, the balloon appeared to be floating in front of the clouds!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Mango Melody mat and into my Night of Navy card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another balloon, sentiment, clouds and birds on the front…

…and some more See A Silhouette DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I am really loving this See A Silhouette DSP, aren’t you?  And the Above The Clouds bundle – with its wonderful sentiments and coordinating Hot Air Balloon Punch, is really a good one!  I hope you like!

Sometimes it’s just too hot.

You gotta get close to the fan.

Really.  Close.

From the front – to cool the intake…

And from the rear to cool…well.

Stampin’ Up! A Well Written Daisy Lane 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 Hop is a color 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!

When I saw the color challenge, my brain screamed DAISY LANE!  Like most of us, when my brain screams – I listen.  So…Daisy Lane it was.  Take a look-see:

Guess – no really! – guess what the color challenge is??!

I started with a piece of Old Olive card stock and stamped the pretty ferny leaf from Daisy Lane all over it in Old Olive for a tone-on-tone “DSP”.  Then I embossed the panel in my Subtle 3D Embossing Folder and matted it on Daffodil Delight for the card front!

While I had the embossing folder handy, I embossed a piece of Whisper White and matted it on Daffodil Delight.  I adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I pulled out my Well Written Dies and cut “thanks” from some Pool Party card stock, then adhered it vertically on the embossed Whisper White panel. I made a bunch of ferny leaves with the new Lovely Leaves Die – cutting several from Old Olive card stock and Old Olive vellum from the Perennial Essence Vellum Card Stock pack.

For the Daisy – which might not even be a daisy anymore….maybe a yellow dahlia?? – I stamped the large and small flowers from Daisy Lane twice each in Daffodil Delight on Whisper White.  Using a Blender Pen, I pulled ink around in the petals to color them.

I punched out all the flowers – using the carry-over Daisy Punch for the large flowers, and the Medium Daisy Punch (bundled with Daisy Lane for a 10% savings) for the smaller ones.

I also punched some flowers from So Saffron vellum from the Perennial Essence Vellum pack.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the leaves to the card front in an ever-so-artisic way.  I also adhered all the flowers in a stack to create my “daisy”.

I stuck a couple of Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of my flower and used them to wind some Silver Metallic Thread in several loops.  Then I stuck the flower onto the card front and “ruffled” the petals a little with my fingers to give it a little “boost”!

I added a new silver Designer Element to the middle of the flower and the card front was done!

On the inside, I used the smaller flower from Daisy Lane to add a Daffodil Delight flower in the corner of a Whisper White panel.  I added some Old Olive leaves and a second Daisy Lane sentiment in Pool Party.  And another Designer Element!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Daffodil Delight mat and into my Pool Party card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another flower and leaves on the front…

…and more of the Old Olive ferny leaves on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I do so love the new Daisy Lane stamp set and the bundled Medium Daisy Punch is just the bomb-diggety.  SUCH a perfect addition to our “stable” of punches.  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Tasteful Woven Textures Card

Happy Happy Hawwwmp Day, y’all!  Guess what?

What, Mary?

Well – one week and about 6 hours from that day’s blog post going live…we’ll be headed to the airport!  Whoo-hooo!

Gelato.  Baklave.  Tiramisu.  Dolmas.  Lasagna.  Spanakopita.  Spaghetti Carbonara!  Tiramisu – yes, I said it twice.  IT.  IS. THAT. GOOD!

See?  Been practicing my Greek and Italian! I think I’m ready!

My card today uses the new Tasteful Textures stamp set and bundled Tasteful Backgrounds Dies – paired up with some beautiful Woven Threads DSP.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from this week’s Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge.

And the color scheme – ALL the new 2019-2021 In Colors! – is from the Fab Friday challenge!

 

The Woven Threads DSP was a pretty obvious choice for this color challenge – so…I took the obvious route – and matted a piece on Pretty Peacock for the card front.

Next up is a piece in Rococo Rose – also matted on Pretty Peacock and adhered with Liquid Glue.

I cut a narrow strip of Terracotta Tile paper from the Woven Threads DSP and cut one of the pretty designs from it using the Tasteful Backgrounds Dies.  Then I matted it on Pretty Peacock with Liquid Glue.

I wrapped a piece of new Pretty Peacock 1/2″ Scalloped Linen Ribbon around that panel – securing it in the back with Glue Dots.  I tied a faux bow with a second short length of the same ribbon.  Then I popped the whole thing onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped a sentiment from the Tasteful Textures stamp set in Pretty Peacock on Whisper White and cut it with a Stitched Shapes Framelits oval.  I used Liquid Glue and a couple of Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the sentiment to the card front.

I added some 2019-2020 In Color Faceted Dots – in Pretty Peacock and Seaside Spray – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a flourish image from Tasteful Textures in stamped-off-once Balmy Blue in the center of a Whisper White panel.  Over the top of that, I added a second sentiment in Pretty Peacock.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Pretty Peacock mat and into my Balmy Blue card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another stamped-off-once Balmy Blue flourish – I put it under the address area! – on the front…

…and I picked one of my Woven Threads DSPs and added it to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Wow!  The Tasteful Textures stamp set and bundled Tasteful Background Dies seem to have just been made to coordinate with the Woven Threads DSP, don’t you think?  I love how this one turned out.  I hope you like!

Eggs.

They’re what’s for breakfast!

He starts off pretty delicately.

Well – as delicately as one Man can get with ginormous furry hands.

Then, though – He.  Gets.  Busy.

Just like I eat breakfast! 😉
