Stampin’ Up! Grand, Bitty, Bloomin’ Birthday 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 our theme is Birthdays!  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 pulled out a few goodies for this one – including the big Life Is Grand set for the sentiment.  I also used the Bloom By Bloom Bundle and a fun little sentiment from Itty Bitty Birthdays.  Take a look-see:

I pulled the layout from the Paper Craft Crew sketch – you’ll see I turned it on its side!

I started by matting a piece of Whisper White on Call Me Clover card stock for the card front.

On the middle panel, also Whisper White, I first stamped the Itty Bitty Birthdays sentiment in Pineapple Punch ink several times on the right side of the panel.  Then I adhered a strip of Happiness Blooms DSP to the left side with Liquid Glue and matted it on Call Me Clover.  Then I adhered the whole thing to the card front with more Liquid Glue.

I doubled up a length of Calypso Coral 3/8″ Satin Ribbon and adhered it with a couple of Glue Dots.  Then I wrapped a piece of Grapefruit Grove Nature’s Twine around the top and tied a simple bow.

For the sentiment, I used my Stamparatus to stamp the Life Is Grand sentiment in Call Me Clover on Whisper White, then I cut it out with a Rectangle Stitched Framelits die.  I popped it over the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

With the punches in the Bitty Bloom Punch Pack, I made some Whisper White and Lovely Lipstick flowers that I adhered together with Liquid Glue.  Then I curled them slightly and stuck them to the card front.  I gave each one a Grapefruit Grove Happiness Blooms Enamel Dot and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a second sentiment from the Life Is Grand set in Call Me Clover.  I added some Lovely Lipstick flowers from the Bloom By Bloom stamp set.  Each flower got another Happiness Blooms Enamel Dot.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Call Me Clover mat and into my Blueberry Bushel card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got some Bloom By Bloom flowers in Lovely Lipstick across the front.  I used my Calypso Coral Stampin’ Write Marker to give them each a center…

…then I added some Happiness Blooms DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Gotta love the bold Life Is Grand sentiments, huh?  They surely make a statement.  And I like how Itty Bitty Birthday adds a little extra sumpin’ sumpin’ in the background, too!  Hope you like!

Just a note: the Bloom By Bloom bundle is a lot of fun – and if you don’t already have the Bitty Blooms Punch Pack – now would be a great time to get them on order.  You’ll see they’re backordered for a minute – but…at least you’ll get your name in the queue before they run out forever!

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 Sue’s page or the Next Blog button to see what Shirley’s been up to!

Stampin’ Up! Stacked Detailed Birthday Cheer!

Morning, guys!  It’s that time of the week again – time to go back to work.

Might I just say…bleh.

If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video, I appreciate you spending part of your weekend with me!  If not, but would like to watch the replay – here ’tis!

I made a fun little card that, with the right inside sentiment, could be for a birthday, or a graduation, or….really anything that is a cause for a celebration!  And it’s courtesy of the Birthday Cheer stamp set and bundled Detailed Birthday Edgelits!  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from this week’s CAS(E) This Sketch challenge.

And the color scheme is courtesy of the CAS Colours & Sketches challenge.

I started with a piece of Whisper White card stock and, using my Stamparatus and the plastic sheet from my dearly-departed Stamp-A-Ma-Jig, I lined up and stamped the large sentiment from the Birthday Cheer stamp set in Lovely Lipstick.  Then I matted the panel on Gray Granite for the card front.

I embossed a piece of Whisper White in the new Dot to Dot TIEF.  Then I matted it on Gray Granite and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

To make the cupcakes, I used the die – twice! – in the fun Detailed Birthday Edgelits to cut one from Lovely Lipstick and one from Powder Pink card stock. Then I trimmed out the cupcakes.

I adhered each die cut cupcake to a piece of the same-color card stock with Liquid Glue – then fussy cut around the outline.

I cut one more cupcake edgelit from Sparkle Glimmer Paper.  Using the pieces, I added “frosting”  – I colored the paper with my Powder Pink or Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Write Markers and then adhered them in their matching negative spaces with Liquid Glue.

I did the same with the die cut Lovely Lipstick cherry and heart!

Finally, I used Liquid Glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the cupcakes to the embossed panel and the card front was done!

On the inside, I didn’t add a sentiment (so I could pick what to use this one for later!).  Instead, I simply added some confetti in Lovely Lipstick and Powder Pink up the side of a Whisper White panel.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Gray Granite mat and into my Lovely Lipstick card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Birthday Cheer confetti up the side of the front…

…and I used some Lovely Lipstick paper from the 2018 – 2020 In Color 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I love these Detailed Birthday Edgelit die cut shapes, don’t you?  And the fun sentiments from the bundled Birthday Cheer stamp set are really great – and give you tons of options for birthday and celebration cards!  Hope you like!

He cracks me up, my little Man does.

I’ll be sitting in the chair and he comes right up and pants at me.

So – I say…”what do you need?”

And he responds – Every.  Single.  Time…

The upside is that this is one of his cutest faces.

The downside is that I STILL don’t know what he wants.

Just…something, please, Mom?!

Finn Fan Fix

This is Finn’s favorite yoghurt.

He’s a bit of a health nut, so he prefers the benefits of Greek yoghurt.

Actually, in truth of matter, he’s not really awfully picky.  He also liked Raspberry Habanero from Noosa, if you recall.  Well – I mean, really.  Who doesn’t?

Regardless of the flavor or brand…he is VERY thorough.

He even gets all the edges.

Stampin’ Up! How Sweet It Is Cupcakes 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.

The color challenge this week shoved me right smack out of my comfort zone!  No Mossy Meadows.  No Blackberry Bliss, Cajun Craze or Crushed Curry.  Nope.  Quite the opposite.  The colors are bright and candy-sweet.  So…I used the Sweetest Thing stamp set and Hello Cupcake from the Sale-A-Bration flyer.  Take a look-see:

And – the colors (just in case you didn’t figure them out….)

Not colors you’re used to seeing from me, huh?  😉

I started with a striped piece of Coastal Cabana paper from the How Sweet It Is DSP and matted it on Melon Mambo card stock for the card front.

Next up, I matted a second piece of the DSP on Melon Mambo and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I used the big die in the new Doily Builder Thinlits to cut an ice-cream-shop-worthy doily from a piece of Sparkle Glimmer Paper and adhered it with Liquid Glue.

On a separate piece of Whisper White, I stamped the sentiment label outline image from the Sweetest Thing stamp set in Coastal Cabana.  Inside it, I added the sentiment in Melon Mambo.

I cut the sentiment with the matching die in the bundled Jar Of Sweets Framelits – and, while I was at the Big Shot, also cut a Melon Mambo label to use as my mat.

I adhered the sentiment to the Melon Mambo label with Liquid Glue – having it just peek out the top.  Then I popped the matted sentiment onto the doily with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped a Melon Mambo and Coastal Cabana lollipop on Whisper White and cut them with their die.  Then I colored the Melon Mambo sucker with my Coastal Cabana Stampin’ Write Marker.  I adhered them to the sentiment with Liquid Glue.

To finish off the card front, I tied a bow from Coastal Cabana/Granny Apple Green 3/8″ Reversible Ribbon and adhered it with a Glue Dot.

On the inside, I stamped Melon Mambo wrapped candies and Coastal Cabana lollipops from Sweetest Thing across the bottom of a Whisper White panel.  Then I added the perfect sentiment from the Hello Cupcake (SAB) stamp set in Melon Mambo.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Melon Mambo mat and into my Whisper White card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more of the candies across the front…

…and then I added some more of the How Sweet It Is DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Not my colors – but I do like how this one turned out!  The Sweetest Thing set is so cute and I love that the Jar of Sweets Framelits let you cut out the little candies!  Hello Cupcake is…FREE!  Oh – and coming on 1 March…will have matching dies!  Finally, let’s not forget that gorgeous Doily Builder doily in the Sparkle Glimmer Paper!  Makes me think of the Ghiradelli ice cream shop at Disney!  Yum!  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! All That You Are Birthday

Well – we did it again!  Made it to Friday – and (for some folks!) – the Friday of a three-day weekend!  If that’s YOU – hope you’ve got some fun plans!  If, like me, you’re working on Monday…well.  Bleh.

My card today is a springy little number (like the Season, not like a slinky!).  I used the very first stamp set in the 2019 Occasions Catalog – called All That You Are.  To that, I added a little Gingham Gala DSP and…take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from this week’s Sunday Stamps sketch challenge.

And the color palette hails from The Paper Players – I picked Granny Apple Green for my “free” color!

I started by adhering a piece of Grapefruit Grove paper from Gingham Gala to a Daffodil Delight panel for the card front.  Then I wrapped a piece of Whisper White 5/8″ Flax Ribbon and one of Grapefruit Grove 1/8″ Grosgrain Ribbon around the panel, securing them in the back with Glue Dots.

For the art, I used my Stamparatus and stamped the large flower from All That You Are in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.

I colored the flowers with a Blender Pen, picking up Grapefruit Grove ink from the lid of the ink pad.  Then I used a Pool Party Stampin’ Write Marker for the small flowers and my Daffodil Delight Marker for the stamen.  The leaves were done with my Dark and Light Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends.

I matted the panel on Daffodil Delight and then adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a separate piece of Whisper White, I stamped the smaller flowers and several leaves in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the flowers and leaves just like I’d done on the larger version – and then cut them out. I used the dies in the Frosted Bouquet Framelits to cut the flowers and fussy cut the leaves.

I adhered the leaves with Liquid Glue, then popped the flowers over top with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the All That You Are sentiment in Pool Party on Whisper White and cut it with a new Rectangle Stitched Framelit die.

I used several Glue Dots to wind a few loops of the Grapefruit Grove ribbon, then popped the sentiment over it with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a Pool Party sentiment and a Tuxedo Black flower from All That You Are to a Whisper White panel.  I colored the flower in Grapefruit Grove, Granny Apple Green, and Daffodil Delight.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Daffodil Delight mat and into my Pool Party card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another All That You Are flower on the front…

…and some more of the Gingham Gala DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This All That You Are is such a pretty set – love those flowers!  And how handy that the smaller flowers fit the carrying-over Frosted Bouquet Framelits!  Hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix

The other day, we were playing a little chase-the-mushroom-ball and…Finn had a little accident.

He was leaping around waiting for me to throw the mushroom and in his bounding about – he bumped into the rock wall with his leg.

He sort of “oomph’d” and then trotted half-heartedly after the ball.

I called him back to me and told him I was so sorry.

And kissed it all better.

Figuratively.  I KNOW there that paw has been!

He bravely shook it off and with a toss of his ear-balls, galloomphed off to where he thought the ball had gone.

He was wrong – but…I got him close and he finally got it!

He’s a tough kid – but…sometimes, ya just need a little TLC from the Mom!

Stampin’ Up! Geared Up Birthday for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Happy Thursday, y’all – and welcome to another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!! This is another installment 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 decided to try out some more of the goodies from the Classic Garage suite – the Geared Up Garage stamp set with the bundled Garage Gears Thinlits and the Classic Garage DSP.  Did you know that the dies in the Thinlits will cut out the images on the DSP?  Well – take a look-see!

No cutting was fussy anywhere on this card!! 🙂

As usual, we had a sketch and a color challenge – and could use either or both.  I definitely used the sketch – and…sorta skirted the edges of the color palette!

             

I also think this dovetails perfectly with this week’s Watercoolor Wednesday Challenge!

I started with a piece of the Classic Garage DSP and embossed it using the large gear die in the Garage Gears Thinlits – using the Impressions Pad and thin silicone mat (the blue one) in the Big Shot Embossing Mats set.  Then I matted it on Pumpkin Pie with Liquid Glue for the card front.

The middle layer is another piece of the Classic Garage DSP, matted on Pumpkin Pie and adhered to the card front with Liquid Glue.

For the banner, I used a third design from the DSP pack, cut it into a banner with my Paper Snips, and then added some faux stitches with my Journaling Pen.  It, too, is adhered to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I cut the fun large image from the DSP using the large die from Garage Gears and adhered it with Liquid Glue.

The sentiment, from Geared Up Garage, is stamped in Crushed Curry on Very Vanilla and cut out with the Tailored Tag Punch,  I added the faux stitches with the Journaling Pen and popped it onto the card front wit Stampin’ Dimensionals.

For the embellishments – I cut another single gear from the DSP with a handy die.  Then I added two Classic Garage Metal Elements with Glue Dots, stuck the gear on with a little Liquid Glue, and adhered that bow tied with Black/Silver 1/4″ Striped Metallic Ribbon.  Yes, I DO think men CAN handle a bow now and then, especially when it’s all manly black and silver!  And that was it for the card front!

On the inside, I added a sentiment from the new Itty Bitty Birthdays stamp set in Crushed Curry to a Very Vanilla panel. Then I cut and adhered a couple more gear groups!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Pumpkin Pie mat and into my Real Red card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

On the front of my Very Vanilla Medium Envelope, I added a “cloud” from Geared Up Garage in Crushed Curry.  Over that, I adhered a couple more gears with Liquid Glue…

…and then I added another piece of the Classic Garage DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This was already a fun suite of goodies – but…that the dies in the Garage Gears Thinlits MATCH the images on the Classic Garage DSP – well…THAT’S amazeballs! It really notches up the awesomeness of the Geared Up Garage and all its friends in the suite!  And – I know you’re going to love all the birthday sentiment options from Itty Bitty Birthdays!  Hope you like!
