Stampin’ Up! Tea Room Botanical Bliss for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Happy Thursday, y’all – and welcome to another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!! This is our second month of the Joint Blog Hop between the Happy Inkin’ Thursday and Happy Stampers Blog Hop ladies!  I hope you really enjoy all the inspiration you can get from our talented folks!

I pulled out another new bundle – the Botanical Bliss stamp set, bundled with the gorgeous Botanical Tags Thinlits – and put it over some Tea Room Specialty DSP.  Take a look-see:

For each joint hop, we’re planning to have both a sketch and a color scheme to play with.  We can use the sketch or the color scheme or…both!  Here’s what we worked with this week.

I used the sketch – although I sort of up-ended it.  And I used the color scheme – but had to sub Coastal Cabana for Bermuda Bay…

I also played along with The Paper Players challenge! 🙂

I started by embossing a piece of Tea Room Specialty DSP in the wonderful new Subtle Dynamic TIEF, then I matted it on a panel of Pear Pizzazz card stock for the card front.  I added a piece of Wood Textures DSP, also matted on Pear Pizzazz.

I wrapped some Linen Thread a few times around the card front, securing it in the back with a couple of Glue Dots.

For the tag, I cut a 2″ wide strip of Crumb Cake card stock.  I placed the pretty Botanical Tags Thinlit die at the top of the strip.  Tip – place the top acrylic cutting pad such that it does NOT cover the bottom (straight) edge of the die.  I did that – and got a perfect cut – with no extra “impressions” where the straight part of the die sits.

I used some Crumb Cake ink and stamped the leaves image from the Botanical Bliss stamp set across the bottom of the tag, then I adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I stamped the bird in Fresh Fig on Whisper White and fussy cut him, then cut some leaves from Pear Pizzazz with the dies in the Botanical Tags Thinlits.  They’re all adhered with Liquid Glue.

I stamped the Botanical Bliss sentiment in Coastal Cabana on another piece of the Wooden Textures DSP and cut it with an oval Stitched Shapes Framelits die.  It’s popped on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and I added a leftover Gold heart Metallic Enamel Shape from my stash.

A few embellishments – a length of new Gold 1/8″ Cord, a True Gentleman Button and a double-loop Billie Moan Bow in Linen Thread – all adhered with Glue Dots – finished it off.

On the inside, I added a second Botanical Bliss sentiment in Coastal Cabana to a Whisper White panel.  Across the bottom are some Crumb Cake leaves.

I matted the panel on Pear Pizzaz and into my Crumb Cake card base with Liquid Glue, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Crumb Cake Botanical Bliss leaves across the front…

…and the envelope flap got more Tea Room Specialty DSP.

Et Voila!  I love love love this Botanical Bliss bundle – the Botanical Tags Thinlits are so beautiful.  I can’t wait to use the rest of them on new projects!  And the Tea Room Specialty DSP is very elegant and…it’s lightweight – so would be perfect for making envelopes!  Hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Floral Foliage Frames Hello

Good Monday.

You know what I mean, okay? 😉

Hope you had a great weekend and are ready to git the work week done!

If you spent a little of your Sunday with me, I surely do appreciate it! If you couldn’t join us, but would like to see the Memorex-version on YouTube – here ’tis!

 

I used the fun new Floral Frames stamp set and bundled (saving you a cool 10% right off the top!) Foliage Frame Framelits.  I put it on top of some gorgeous Petal Promenade DSP.  Take a look-see:

Although I didn’t use the sketch, I was inspired by the photo in this week’s Fusion Challenge.

And, it’s just feminine enough to work with this week’s Watercolor Wednesday Challenge!

This is an easy and quick card – the beautiful DSP and fun dies in the Foliage Frame Framelits do all the work – so…buckle up!

I started by heat embossing the large floral frame image from the Floral Frames stamp set.  I inked it with Versamark ink and stamped it on my Petal Promenade DSP panel.  Then I sprinkled it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heated it up with my Heat Tool.  I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Blushing Bride mat to create the card front.

Then I pulled out the matching Foliage Frame Framelits and cut two large frames – one each in Shaded Spruce and Soft Sea Foam.  I also cut four leaves from Whisper White card stock.

I adhered the white leaves to the card front with Liquid Glue, then added the Soft Sea Foam framelit die cut – also with Liquid Glue.  I popped the Shaded Spruce die cut on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

For the Floral Frames sentiment, I stamped it in Blushing Bride on Whisper White and cut it with a Stitched Shapes Framelits circle die.  I adhered it with Liquid Glue to a Blushing Bride mat that I’d cut with the Starburst Punch.

I added some Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the matted sentiment and used them to wind several loops of Gold Metallic Thread.  Then I popped it onto the card.

I finished up by adding some Petal Pink Rhinestone Gems and a few pink Share What You Love Artisan Pearls and the card front was done!

On the inside, I used Blushing Bride, Shaded Spruce and Soft Sea Foam to add some flowers and leaves from the Floral Frames set to a Whisper White panel.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Blsuhgin Bride mat and into my Thick Whisper White card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Floral Frames flowers and leaves on the front…

…and I added some more Petal Promenade DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This Floral Frames stamp set and Foliage Frame Framelits was another set that captured my eye – and my “want”!! – as soon as I saw it!  And – I can’t say enough about the beautious-ness of the Petal Promenade DSP!  Hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Magical Mermaid Tranquil Textures Fun Fold Card

Good morning, y’all!  And – even though it’s Monday, it’s REALLY still the weekend – so….it really is a HAPPY MONDAY!

If you were able to join me last night on my Facebook Live video, I sure appreciate you spending part of your holiday weekend with me.  If not – but would like to see how to make this fun-fold card – here’s the video for you on YouTube!

Fair warning – my directions in this blog post aren’t going to be terribly detailed – it’s a heckuva lot easier to show this kind of card than to tell you how to do it!

Which makes you think it’s hard.

But it isn’t.

Just doesn’t lend itself too efficiently to the written directions format! 🙂

So – this is a bridge card that I made with the Magical Mermaid stamp set (carrying over) and the goodies in the new Tranquil Textures Suite – specifically the Sea of Textures stamp set and bundled Under the Sea Framelits, plus the gorgeous Tranquil Textures DSP.  Take a look-see:
