Stampin’ Up! Birds of a Feather Sneak Peek for the Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop!

Good morning, 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 our theme is 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!

First off – it’s hard to think about Fall when it’s 100 outside.  Just sayin’… 😉

I decided another sneak peek from the 2019 Holiday Catalog was the way to go here – and I figured….why not go with Thanksgiving?  So…I pulled out the new Birds of a Feather stamp set (which covers Thanksgiving, Halloween, Christmas and Valentine’s Day!) and paired the little turkey with some Come To Gather DSP.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one comes from this week’s TGIF Sketch Challenge.

And the colors are from… Sunday Stamps! 🙂

I started with some feather-y Pretty Peacock paper from the Come To Gather DSP (coming in the new 2019 Holiday Catalog on 4 Sept) and matted it on Crushed Curry for the card front.

On a smaller rectangle of Very Vanilla, I stamped the little turkey from Birds of a Feather (avail 4 Sept) in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored – her (she’s my turkey and she can be a she if I want to her to be, so… 😉 ) – with my Light and Dark Crumb Cake, Pretty Peacock and Rococo Rose Stampin’ Blends.  Plus my Crushed Curry, Cajun Craze, Early Espresso and Pretty Posy Stampin’ Write Markers.

I stamped the gobbler again on a second Pretty Peacock design from the Come To Gather DSP and fussy cut just the apron.  Did the same on a Pretty Posy checkered piece of 2019-2021 In Color 6″ x 6″ DSP and cut out the apron pocket.  I adhered both with Liquid Glue.

I stamped the Birds of a Feather sentiment in Pretty Peacock in the bottom corner.  Then I matted it on Crushed Curry and adhered it to the card front.

I pulled out a Tags & Feathers Elements and colored the middle stripe of one with my Pretty Peacock Blend.  Then I adhered it to the panel with Liquid Glue.

A tiny Linen Thread bow and some Pretty Posy 2019-2021 Faceted Dots finished off the card front!

On the inside, I added the Birds of a Feather gobbler in the bottom corner of a Very Vanilla panel and colored her as I’d done on the front.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Crushed Curry mat and into my Cajun Craze card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got another gobbler on the front…

…and some more feathery Come To Gather DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I love this little image from Birds of a Feather – and it’s so cool that the single set covers so many occasions, don’t you think?  And the Come To Gather DSP is going to be a mainstay for all your Fall projects!  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 Terry Lynns’s page or the Next Blog button to see what Akiko’s been up to!

Stampin’ Up! Country Home on a Country Lane for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Happy Thursday, y’all – and welcome to another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!! Today’s a color challenge (and it’s very Fall-y!).  With the arrival yesterday of the 2018 Holiday Catalog, I can’t wait for you to see everyone’s projects today!

When I saw our colors for this week, I right away pulled out the new Country Home stamp set and paired it up with the coordinating Country Lane DSP.  Take a look-see:

Uhm…can you guess the colors? 😉

And – since I’ll always take a little extra help…I also pulled some inspiration from this week’s CAS(E) This Sketch challenge.

I started with some wood-grain paper from the Country Lane DSP and embossed it in the new Subtle Dynamic TIEF.  Then I cut a second strip of cotton-y paper in Crushed Curry.  I matted both pieces on Mint Macaron using Liquid Glue, then used more Liquid Glue to adhere the matted strip to the card front.

I wrapped some new 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim around the diagonal strip, securing it in the back with a couple of Glue Dots.

For the art work, I used Early Espresso to stamp the floral arrangement and the milk can from the Coutnry Home set on a piece of Whisper White.  I colored the floral art with my Mint Macaron, Crushed Curry and (yes, I cheated a smidge!) my Cajun Craze Stampin’ Write Marker.

For the milk can, I used a Blender Pen and my Early Espresso Watercolor Pencil – I scribbled some of the Watercolor Pencil on a piece of scrap paper and then used the Blender Pen to pick up the color.

Once I had all the shading that I wanted, I added the sentiment in Early Espresso.  Finally, I used a little tiny paint brush to add some Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint to the can.

I matted the panel on Mint Macaron and popped it over the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Once it was on the card front, it looked a little plain to me, so I added some faux stitches with my Early Espresso Stampin’ Write Marker.

I adhered a Galvanized Button next to the panel with a Glue Dot, then added a double-length bow of 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim with another Glue Dot and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a second sentiment from Country Home in Early Espresso to a Whisper White panel.  Across the bottom, I stamped the floral image a few times in Early Espresso and colored them like I’d done on the front.  The faux stitches finished it off!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Mint Macaron mat and into my Crushed Curry card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Country Home florals and faux stitches across the front…

…and then I added a little more cotton-y Country Lane DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  How sweet is this Coutnry Home stamp set and the gorgeous Country Lane DSP?!  It’s flat-out perfect for all sorts of wonderful, Fall-y, projects!  I hope you like!
