Stampin’ Up! Needlepoint Flowers 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 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.

I decided to use the Needle & Thread stamp set with the bundled Needlepoint Elements Framelits for this one – it just made sense to me!  Take a look-see:

Our color challenge is probably pretty obvious…

And I used the CAS(E) This Sketch challenge for my layout!

I started with a piece of Crushed Curry paper from the Regals 6″ x6″ DSP and matted it on Old Olive for the card front.

The art began with a Whisper White panel, and I used the large floral “stitching” die to cut into each corner.  This die is cool – it creates what looks like “quilting”!

Then I matted it on Old Olive and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I used Old Olive to add some flowers from the Needle & Thread set to the panel – this is the double-ended stamp (I just used the one end!).

On a separate piece of Whisper White, I used my Stamparatus to stamp some Needle & Thread flowers in Crushed Curry and Berry Burst, then I cut them with their matching dies in the Needlepoint Elements Framelits.


I cut several leaves from Whisper White and Old Olive card stock with the Needlepoint Elements dies.  Then I used Liquid Glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals to create my collage with all my elements!

I stamped the Needle & Thread sentiment in Old Olive on Whisper White, then fussy cut each word.  They’re adhered with Liquid Glue.

I tied a simple bow with two lengths of Whisper White Medium Baker’s Twine and a length of Old Olive Linen Thread and adhered it to the card front with a Glue Dot.  The card front is finished with a few Berry Burst Glitter Enamel Dots.

On the inside, I stamped a second Needle & Thread sentiment in Old Olive on a Whisper White panel. Then I added some Berry Burst butterflies!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to an Old Olive mat and into my Berry Burst card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got some more Needle & Thread butterflies on the front…

…and I added some more Crushed Curry DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This Needle & Threads bundle is such fun to use to build floral collages – especially for folks that love needlepoint and embroidery!  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Botanical Butterfly Gala

Hello from Maryland!  Made it yesterday in decent-ish time (have to say – the traffic thru DC was ridiculous especially given that it was Saturday – I’ll never complain about Atlanta traffic again!). I was pretty whooped (I’m not as young as I was the last time I made this trip!) so only sort of unpacked the car – just enough to be able to go to bed.  Will finish that today and get my “nest” made!  Keep an eye on your FB notifications later this evening – I may hop on for a few minutes to give you a gander at my home-away-from-home for the next 5 – 6 weeks – if I can get it all together!

So my card for today is one that uses the gorgeous – and FREE during Sale-A-Bration! – Botanical Butterfly DSP and the Butterfly Gala stamp set.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Country Flowing Fountain

Happy Saturday, y’all!

Well – last night, at the end of a long and turbulent week, Wayne and I went to dinner with our friends in what has become a routine for us.  Not all routines are something to be eagerly anticipated – but this one…definitely is.  It’s a nice thing to look forward to each weekend!

Also – did you know that yesterday was – apparently – National Margarita Day?  I didn’t until my friend told me – which helped make the dinner decision easier.  Mexican it was.

But – they weren’t doing ANYthing special for National Margarita Day.

Mexican.  Food.  Restaurant.  National Margarita Day.  Hola?!?

Pero….Nada.

Huh.

Not saying this kept me from having the drink-of-the-day.  Cuz I totally did!

Now – my ramblings about my dinner aside, we’ve also got a card – which is, in fact, why you’re here, right? 😉

It’s a clean-and-simple little number, that I made with a sentiment from the Flowing Fountain stamp set with an assist from the new Country Floral Dynamic TIEF and some beautiful Painted Seasons DSP.  Take a look-see:
