Stampin’ Up! Wishing You Well Sneak Peek for the Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Good mornin’, y’all – welcome to another edition of Amy’s Inkin’ Krew team blog hop!  Each month we make projects centered around a theme – and this month we’re calling it Fall Frenzy!  We can interpret that any way we want – so…be sure to check and see everyone’s projects – we’ve got a bunch of talented ladies hopping with us this month!

I decided to ink up a new set from the 2018 Holiday catalog, called Wishing You Well.  It is absolutely gorgeous – and fits our theme perfectly – especially when added to some wood grain paper from the new Country Lane DSP.  Take a look-see:

My color scheme is from The Paper Players this week – pretty “Fall-y”, wouldn’t you say? 🙂

I started with the aforementioned paper in wood-grained Early Espresso from the new Country Lane DSP (coming on 5 Sept!) and matted it on Mango Melody card stock for the card front.

For the art piece – I used my Stamparatus (I made four of these beauties!) – and first stamped the Wishing You Well flower bunch in So Saffron on a small panel of Whisper White.  Next is the flowers image in Pumpkin Pie.

Finally, I stamped the bow.

The bow!!  SO darned gorgeous – you don’t even have to stamp it off.  You get that wonderful gauzy/net look with straight-up full-strength Pumpkin Pie ink.  Thank you, Stampin’ Up!

I added the little sentiment in Early Espresso and that was it!

I matted the panel on Mango Melody and adhered it to the card-front with Liquid Glue.  With my Mango Melody Stampin’ Blend Marker (in the 2018 Holiday Catalog!), I colored some Pearl Basic Jewels and add them to the card front.  And…the card front was done!

On the inside, I added the flower bunch, flowers and bow to the bottom of a Whisper White panel.

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got a reprise of the Wishing You Well flowers and bow on the front…

…and I put a little more Country Lane DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I LOVE this Wishing You Well stamp set – it would be gorgeous with nothing more than the flowers – but…the BOW!  Wow – it just blows me away!  I hope you like!

Now that you’ve seen my card, I hope you’ll take a little time to jump thru all the other projects we have to share. Click any name below, or you can use the Previous Blog button to jump to Julie’s page or the Next Blog button to see what Nanette’s been up to!

Stampin’ Up! Festive Farmhouse Country Home Sneak Peek

Good Monday, my peeps!  And welcome to the beginning of the end of Mary’s time in SoCal!  Just two weeks left and only a couple of days of the hard stuff.  Looking forward to my alarm not going off at 4am on Wednesday!  Might even do something crazy and not get to work at 7….might slow-roll-in around 8!

gasp…. 🙂

So my card today is a study in sneak peeks of the new 2018 Holiday Catalog (okay – yea – been doing that for a minute, I know!).  This one uses some gorgeous new Festive Farmhouse DSP and a great sentiment from the Country Home stamp set.  These are both available to customers on 5 Sept (and you could also get a sample of the paper in one of my DSP or I Want It All catalog shares!).  Take a look-see:

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

I started with some wonderful plaid paper from the new Festive Farmhouse DSP and matted it on Mossy Meadow card stock for the card front.

I used my Stamparatus to ensure a good image and stamped the sentiment from Country Home in Mossy Meadow on a strip of Very Vanilla card stock.  On the left end of the strip, I added some of the small “tile” images in Cherry Cobbler.  Than I matted the strip on Mossy Meadow and added it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I pulled out my Pretty Pines Thinlits and cut a couple of Mossy Meadow pine boughs.  Then I added them – along with a Copper star from the new Snowflakes & Stars Wire Elements (also in the 2018 Holiday Catalog and available on 5 Sept) – with a few Glue Dots.  Finally, I tied a bow with some Cherry Cobbler Festive Farmhouse Cotton Twine and adhered it with a final Glue Dot.  And that was it for the card front!

On the inside, I added a second sentiment from Country Home in Mossy Meadow on a Very Vanilla panel.  Then I stamped the Cherry Cobbler tile image randomly around the panel.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Mossy Meadow mat and into a Thick Very Vanilla card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got another few Country Home tiles in Cherry Cobbler on the front…

…and more of the Festive Farmhouse DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila! Love this Festive Farmhouse paper so much!  And the whole pack is similarly gorgeous!  I believe that Country Home is going to be one of your go-to favorites for the Fall season, too!  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! A Joyous Merry Christmas To All!

Morning y’all!  It’s Sunday – and I’m probably at work by the time you read this – for our last working Sunday!  Almost there.  Just a couple more days and it’s the downhill slide to homeward bound!

My card today is a pretty little Christmas number, using some more Joyous Noel Specialty DSP, the new Tin Tile Dynamic TIEF and a very cool wooden sentiment from the Festive Farmhouse Elements.  On the inside, I added a sentiment and some holly from the Merry Christmas To All stamp set.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from this week’s Global Design Project challenge.

I started with a panel of Whisper White that I embossed in the new (and oh-so-wondefufl!) Tin Tile Dynamic TIEF (coming on 5 Sept).  I embossed it and then cut it down to size before matting it on Merry Merlot for the card front.

I cut three strips of Joyous Noel Specialty DSP and matted them on Merry Merlot.  Then I added them to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I wrapped a piece of new Merry Merlot & Copper 5/8″ Reversible Ribbon around the card front, securing it in the back with a couple of Glue Dots.

For the sentiment, I used one of the new Festive Farmhouse Elements and sponged it with new Bright Copper Shimmer Paint.  I gave it a couple of coats, sort of “pouncing” it to create a “hammered copper” look.  Then I adhered it to the ribbon with Liquid Glue.

I pulled out my Pretty Pines Thinlits and cut some pieces from Shaded Spruce and Vellum card stock.  For the Vellum leaves, I sponged them with the same Bright Copper Shimmer Paint.  Then I adhered all the leaves and boughs under the ribbon with Liquid Glue.

To finish off, I used a short length of the Merry Merlot & Copper ribbon and tied it snugly around the first piece, creating a “faux bow”.

On the inside, I stamped a Merry Christmas To All sentiment in Versamark, sprinkled it with Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heated it with my Heat Tool.  Around the sentiment I added some Shaded Spruce holly from the same set.  I added some tiny dots around the holly leaves with my Merry Merlot Stampin’ Write Marker.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Merry Merlot mat and then into my Shaded Spruce card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Merry Christmas To All holly in Shaded Spruce, with Merry Merlot dots added for a little interest…

…and then I added a little more Joyous Noel Specialty DSP to the envelope flap (adding some Merry Merlot dots here and there, too).

Et Voila!  How fun are those Festive Farmhouse Elements? Especially colored with Shimmer Paint.  And – the Tin Tile Dynamic TIEF – oh boy!  I love it so much!  I’m also tickled with how nicely the sentiment from the Merry Christmas To All fit so well with the overall look of the card.  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Cruise News from Skagway….

Mornin’, y’all!  When this posts – we’ll be waking up for the last time aboard the Explorer! 🙁  It’s been so much fun – and I can’t believe it’s almost over!  Yesterday was Victoria, B.C. and the Butchart Gardens.  Beautiful!

But – I wanted to share Skagway with you – it was so wildly beautiful – and we got to see a tiny sliver of The Yukon, too!

Upon arrival, it was instantly obvious that Skagway itself is tiny – and, in fact, we learned that its only industry is tourism.  And that’s about a 5 month season.

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:

Stampin’ Up! Artistically Asian There for Me

Happy three-day weekend, my peeps!  Hope you’ve got some fun plans – and that you won’t get washed out.  It’s looking like we’re going to get the “wet” version of Sprummer here in the south!

I was so tickled when I discovered that the Artistically Asian stamp set was carrying over!  It’s got such pretty flower and foliage images, plus wonderful sentiments.  I used some of the new Brights colors and a Stitched Labels Frameltis die to make a clean-and-simple card.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Rooted in Nature Easel Fun Fold

If you were able to join us for my Facebook Live video last night, thanks so much for spending part of your weekend with me!  If not, but you’d like to see how to make this easy fun-fold card with the new Rooted in Nature stamp set and bundled Nature’s Roots Framelits, then you can check out the Memorex (google that if you’re too young to know what Memorex means….) version right here:

This new set, which you’re going to be able to get for yourself in like…LESS THAN TWO WEEKS!!…is so pretty and cool!  And – when you add it to some Wood Textures DSP – take a look-see:
