Stampin’ Up! Sail Away on LilyPad Lake for the Stamp Ink Paper #155

Happy Tuesday, y’all!  Since it’s Tuesday, that means we’ve got another Stamp Ink Paper challenge to give your creative mojo a bump!  AND – it’s a give away challenge so…Hope you’ll play along with us! 🙂

The theme this week is Summer Fun and the little sailboats in the Lilypad Lake bundle really say summer to me.  I added the perfect sentiment from the Detailed With Love set.  Take a look-see:

And here’s the challenge badge for the SIP #155!  When you’re done here, be sure to head over and check out the giveaway this week!

In addition to our own challenge, I got the inspiration for my layout from the sketch challenge at CAS(E) This Sketch.

And…cuz I’m always willing to take any extra help…my colors are from the Just Us Girls Color Week.

I pulled out my journaling pens and did a little doodling – as suggested by the TGIF Challenge!

So – to begin, I stamped the water image from the Lilypad Lake stamp set in Coastal Cabana on a panel of Whisper White, then double-matted the panel on Coastal Cabana and Lovely Lipstick card stock.

Over the top, I borrowed a sentiment from the Detailed With Love stamp set and added it with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink – using my Stamparatus.

On some scrap Whisper White, I stamped several sailboat images in Tuxedo Black and cut them all out with their matching die in the bundled Lakeside Framelits.  Then I got busy with my Lovely Lipstick and Coastal Cabana Stampin’ Write Markers.  I used my Journaling Pen to fun-i-size the sails with some doodles!

I used Liquid Glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals to add the sailboats oh-so-artistically around the sentiment.  

My Journaling Pen came in handy to add some sea birds and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added the Lilypad Lake sailboats again in Tuxedo Black, Lovely Lipstick and Coastal Cabana to a Whisper White panel.  I hand-drew some Coastal Cabana waves and doodled a few more sea birds.

I double matted the panel on Coastal Cabana and Lovely Lipstick, then added it to my Basic Black card base with Liquid Glue.  Then I popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got a reprise of the Lilypad Lake sailboats on the front…

…and I added more Coastal Cabana water and some sea birds to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I can almost hear the sea gulls crying and the slap of the waves against my Lilypad Lake sailboats, can’t you?  And the Detailed With Love sentiment fits perfectly.  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! Love You To Pieces!

Good morning and Happy Saturday! 🙂  Hope you’ve got a fun day ahead of you – or a quiet and relaxing day, whichever makes your heart happier!

My card today uses the new Love You To Pieces bundle – and this is a fun set indeed!  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one hails from this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

And the color scheme comes from the Color Throwdown.

I started with a piece of Whisper White card stock and embossed it with the large die in the new Puzzle Pieces Thinlits using the new Big Shot Embossing Mats.  I adhered a piece of Grapefruit Grove DSP from the 2018-2020 In Color DSP to a second mat of Pool Party card stock with Liquid Glue, then popped the embossed Whisper White panel over top with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I wrapped a piece of Granny Apple Green 1/2″ Textured Weave Ribbon around the front of a Whisper White card base, securing it with a couple of Glue Dots on the front.  Then I popped my embossed and matted square over top with Dimensionals.

I stamped the two puzzle pieces from the Love You To Pieces stamp set – one in Pineapple Punch and one in Grapefruit Grove – on Whisper White, then cut them with their dies in the Puzzle Pieces Thinlits.

The Love You To Pieces sentiment is stamped in Granny Apple Green on a strip of Whisper White with banner ends snipped.  I edged the banner with my Pool Party Stampin’ Write Marker.

I adhered the Pineapple Punch puzzle piece to the card front with Liquid Glue, then added the sentiment banner with a couple of Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added the second puzzle piece with Stampin’ Dimensionals and a little dab of Liquid Glue.  And that was it for the card front.

On the inside, I added some Love You To Pieces hearts in Pineapple Punch and Granny Apple Green across the bottom of my Whisper White panel.

I matted the panel on Grapefruit Grove 2018-2020 In Color DSP and Pool Party and then adhered it into the Whisper White card base with Liquid Glue and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Pineapple Punch and Granny Apple Green hearts across the front…

 

…and a little more 2018-2010 In Color DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I love these colors – I think Granny Apple Green is going to be the new Lemon Lime Twist, don’t you?  And this fun – and punny! – Love You To Pieces bundle is really going to be a hoot to use!  Hope you like!

TTFN

Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Animal Outing Sneak Peek

Happy Sunday, y’all, from sunny SoCal!  Hope your weekend is going well.

So – I got in to Palmdale around 3pm yesterday.  All was going pretty well, until I was about half way here.  And then I started to have some…inconveniently located itching.

I figured it was my skin rebelling early and vocally against returning to the land-of-needing-a-zillion-gallons-of-lotion-a-day.

And then I got into the room and discovered the error of my figuring.

My first day of my trip – normally spent setting up my craft area, doing some grocery shopping and generally getting settled and nested up….was, instead, spent in the local ER discovering I have full-blown hives.

Say what now!?
