Stampin’ Up! Pines and Large Numbers for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop



Happy Thursday, y’all – and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!  It’s a color week for the last week – and last Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!! – of 2017! Can you even believe it!?  Be sure to check out all the ladies’ projects before we slide into 2018, won’t you?  

Here’s the color scheme we’re working with today:

I went pretty obvious for the week of the year we’re in.  Yup!  New Years.  I used some Large Number Framelits and a few Christmas Happiness/Pretty Pines to celebrate the arrival of 2018!  And…there’s another little sneak peek of the Celebrate You Thinlits – a free goody when Sale-A-Bration starts next week!  Take a look-see:

I started with a panel of Copper Foil and cut the four numbers from the Large Numbers Framelits – making sure to hang on to the cut out pieces.

I laid the cut panel into my Pinewood Planks Dynamic TIEF – and added the little cut out pieces, too – and then embossed the whole thing.  I used Fast Fuse and Liquid Glue to adhere the cut and embossed panel to a Whisper White mat.

I cut more numbers from some Thick Whisper White card stock – three more of each number, to be exact.  Then I made stacks with Liquid Glue and glued the stacked numbers back into their spots.  Then I used more Liquid Glue to add the little cut out pieces back into their spaces.

Using the Celebrate die from the Celebrate You Thinlits (available on 3 Jan), I cut the sentiment from some Silver Foil and adhered it over the numbers with little bits of Liquid Glue.

To decorate the card, I pulled out my Pretty Pines Thinlits and cut some pine boughs, a pine cone and some berries from Silver Glimmer Paper and Whisper White card stock.  For the Silver Glimmer pine cone, I adhered it to a scrap of Whisper White with Liquid Glue and fussy cut it.  

I looped a short length of Silver Mini Sequin Trim around, sticking it on with Liquid Glue, then I added the Pretty Pines die cuts over top.

I made a Billie Moan bow with some new Silver Baker’s Twine (get it on 3 Jan) and stuck it on with a Glue Dot.  And – that was it for the card front!

On the inside, I used Smoky Slate ink – stamped off once – to add a Christmas Happiness pine bough in the center of a Whisper White panel.  Over that, I used my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to stamp a sentiment from the Season of Whimsy Host stamp set (available right now – but…only for a few more days!) in Versamark.  I sprinkled it with Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed it with my Heat Tool.

I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Whisper White mat and into my Thick Whisper White card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

The front of my Whisper White Medium Envelope got a few stamped off once or twice Smoky Slate pine boughs from Christmas Happiness…

…and I embossed the envelope flap in the Pinewood Planks Dynamic TIEF.

Et Voila!  Large Numbers Framelits and Pretty Pines in mixed metals to welcome the new year!  Hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Color Me Happy Watercolor Christmas

Good mornin’, y’all!  It’s Friday-Lite!  Which is a new term I just made up meaning…the calendar says it’s Friday, but the fact that I’ll be here working tomorrow, means…it really isn’t!  But – I do hope it’s a full-up Friday for all y’all and that you have some fun plans for the weekend!

Before we get going – let me make a quick plug for the Stampin’ Blends special bundles and Double Peppermint Ordering Special (for folks who order one of my bundles) going on now thru the 14th.  Folks are snapping these up – don’t miss out, okay?

For today’s card, I borrowed the pretty little flower image from the Color Me Happy stamp set (part of the Stampin’ Blends release and bundles) and added in a couple sentiments from Watercolor Christmas.  Take a look-see:


My layout comes from the challenge at Freshly Made Sketches this week.

And the colors and several elements were inspired by the photo at The Card Concept.  I’d call my card style Clean and Layered.

I started with a piece of Whisper White card stock that I embossed in the Pinewood Planks Dynamic TIEF.  I toyed with a few designs from the Wood Textures DSP but just couldn’t make any of them appeal to me with the color scheme. 🙂

I matted the panel on Cherry Cobbler as the card front.

My sentiment, from the Watercolor Christmas stamp set, is stamped in Versamark Ink on Whisper White card stock, sprinkled with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed.  Then I matted it on Cherry Cobbler and adhered it to the card front with Fast Fuse.

To make my decoration, I stamped the flower from Color Me Happy in Versamark on a piece of scrap Whisper White, sprinkled it with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat set it.  Then I colored it with the Light and Dark Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends and fussy cut it.

I stamped the detailed leaf image from the Painted Harvest stamp set in Versamark on Garden Green and heat embossed them in Gold.  Then I punched them out with my Leaf Punch.  I also cut a few extra berries with the Pretty Pines Thinlits – in Gold Foil and Whisper White.  

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the leaves and berries to the card front and popped the Color Me Happy flower on top with a couple of Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a gold Metallic Enamel Shapes dot to the middle of the flower and a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels around the sentiment.  To finish it all off, I tied a double-strand bow from Gold Metallic Thread and adhered it with a tiny dab of Liquid Glue.

On the inside, I stamped the solid leaf image from Painted Harvest in Garden Green up the side of a Whisper White panel. When it was dry, I stamped the second, detailed, leaf image over the top in Versamark and heat embossed that image in Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  Then I added a second sentiment from Watercolor Christmas in Cherry Cobbler, using my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to get it where it needed to be.

I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Cherry Cobbler 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 a repeat of the Garden Green/Gold Embossed leaves from Painted Harvest up the side…

…and I embossed the envelope flap in the Pinewood Planks Dynamic TIEF.

Et Voila!  This is such a pretty little flower from Color Me Happy – and when it’s colored with the new Stampin’ Blends (need to getcha some!), I think it notches up to gorgeous!  And I love the fonts in the beautiful Watercolor Christmas stamp set.  Hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Painted Harvest Vintage Leaves

Well, it’s Friday, y’all!  We made it!  Hope you’re ready for a fun weekend.  I’ve got my traditional pre-trip hair cut for tomorrow and then….if nothing changes….I head to the airport on Sunday.  

Bleh.

Let me repeat….B. L. E. H.

But – for now…let’s take a look at the card I made on Thursday as my end-of-day stress reliever!  I used one of my all-time favorite sets – the Vintage Leaves and added a Painted Harvest sentiment.  Take a look-see:

This layout was inspired by the sketch challenge at the Paper Craft Crew.  

It also plays nicely with the challenge from The Paper Players.

I made the card front from a piece of Very Vanilla card stock.  Using the little splotches image from the Timeless Textures stamp set, I stamped around in the top corner with Crumb Cake ink.  Then I ran the panel thru the Big Shot in my Pinewood Planks Dynamic TIEF.

With my sponge, I lightly burnished the raised wood grain with Cajun Craze.  Tip – use your – previously inked – dry sponge.  Don’t add any more ink.  It makes it easier to stay on top of the grain.  I also flicked the edges of the panel.

The panel is matted on a piece of Pumpkin Pie card stock.

I adhered a length of 5/8″ Burlap Ribbon down the side with some liquid Glue.  Then I made leaves!

This is the stained glass technique.  First I stamped two smaller flowers on a piece of Vellum card stock in Early Espresso.

And let them dry.  It takes a while, folks.  Be patient.  Or…give them a little hit with your Heat Tool!

While those dried, I rubbed another piece of Vellum card stock with my Embossing Buddy and stamped the large leaf in Versamark, sprinkled it with Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heated it up.

I colored the leaves by turning them over – and coloring the back! – with my Pumpkin Pie, Crushed Curry and Cajun Craze Stampin’ Write Markers.  I used the darker colors to highlight the veins in the leaves and then filled them in with the lighter colors.  When that was dry…I cut them out with the matching dies in the Leaflets Frameltis.

I curled the leaves lightly with a stylus then used Dimensionals behind the large leaf (and a little Liquid Glue on the stem) to adhere it to the card front.  Then I added the smaller leaves over top – with just a small line of Liquid Glue down the center and the stem.

The sentiment, from Painted Harvest, is stamped on Very Vanilla in Cajun Craze ink.  Then I tore around the sentiment and flicked the torn edges with a Crumb Cake sponge.  I also crumpled up the sentiment a couple of times to vintage-ize it a little and then popped it over the leaves with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The final pieces are a Linen Thread bow (make multiple loops and tie a thread around the middle) and a few Pumpkin Pie Enamel Shapes.

On the inside, I added a couple of the smaller leaves in Early Espresso and colored them with my Crushed Curry and Pumpkin Pie markers.  I also added some Timeless Textures Crumb Cake spotches and flicked the edges with the Cajun Craze sponge.

I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Pumpkin Pie mat and into my Early Espresso card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got more Vintage Leaves and Timeless Textures on the front…

…and I embossed the flap in the Pinewood Planks Dynamic TIEF and burnished it with the Cajun Craze sponge.

Et Voila!  Some Vintage Leaves with an assist from Painted Harvest.  And, of course, the wonderful Pinewood Planks Dynamic TIEF!  All with some subtle color from the stained glass technique on Vellum.  Hope you like! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! A Little Christmas Happiness for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop



Happy Thursday, y’all – and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! We’ve got a full roster for today’s color challenge, so be sure to check ’em all out when you get done here!  

Here’s the color scheme we had for the challenge.

And I also played along with a sketch challenge over at the Paper Craft Crew

So… the colors sort of scream Fall and the Autumn Harvest suite, which means that I used the Christmas Happiness stamp set and threw in a few “helpers” from the Pretty Pines Thinlits.  Take a look-see:

I started with a piece of Whisper White card stock and, using the pine bough image in Christmas Happiness, I stamped it all over the panel in Garden Green.  I stamped the image twice without re-inking to add depth.  Then I added Christmas lights – I love Christmas lights (I’d keep a tree in my living room all year round with nothing but clear white lights on it if I could!).  These little lights are three-step.  Step 1 – I stamped the outline of the light in Early Espresso.  Step 2 – stamped the “light” in Crushed Curry.  And Step 3 – stamped the fill-in of the socket in stamped-off-once Garden Green.

Finally, I added the small pinecone a few times – the outline image in Early Espresso and the fill-in image in stamped-off-once Early Espresso.  I gently flicked the edges of the panel with a sponge in Early Espresso and matted the panel to an Early Espresso mat (sheesh – now I need a cup of coffee!! 😉 ).  I ran a length of Garden Green 3/8″ Stitched Satin ribbon around the panel, securing it in the back with scotch tape.

The center panel is another piece of Whisper White to which I adhered a piece of Wood Textures DSP.  Then I ran the whole thing thru the Big Shot in the Pinewood Planks Dynamic TIEF and popped it over the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Using some Liquid Glue, I adhered a length of 5/8″ Burlap Ribbon across the middle panel.

I stamped my sentiment from Christmas Happiness in Early Espresso on Whisper White and cut it out with a Stitched Shapes Framelits circle die – then I matted it on a scalloped Early Espresso mat.

I cut some Garden Green pine boughs and Crushed Curry berries with the Pretty Pines Thinlits dies.  The pine cone is stamped in Early Espresso (just like on the card front) and fussy cut.

I adhered a berry sprig and pine bough under the center panel with Liquid Glue and added another pair on top of the panel.  Then I used Liquid Glue and a Dimensional to add the sentiment.

My embellishment is the fussy cut pine cone and a berry/bough combo, with a looped Linen Thread Bow.  To finish it all off, I added three Crushed Curry Enamel Shapes to the side of the panel and that was it for the card front.

On the inside, I added some more Christmas Happiness pine boughs, lights and cones to a Whisper White panel and added the second sentiment in Early Espresso.

I Fast Fuse’d the panel to an Early Espresso 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 another treatment of pine boughs, lights and cones on the front…

…and some more of the Wooden Textures DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Love love love Christmas Happiness – boughs…pine cones…. lights.  It’s the trifecta of good!!  And it works so nicely to add some Pretty Pines die cuts along with it!  Hope you like! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! At Home With You in the City!

Happy post-Eclipse Day!  I hope you enjoyed the event yesterday, wherever you were.  We pretty much watched it on television – cuz they were showing some pretty spectacular images!  Pretty cool.

My card today is the one that I gave to Matt on Sunday – with a couple of gift cards in it – Home Depot and Bed, Bath and Beyond.  Both seemed appropriate for setting up a new house!  I used the In the City host-exclusive set, and a bunch of elements from the At Home With You bundle.  On the inside is a sentiment from the Home Life stamp set.  Take a look-see:

Congrats on Your New Home - Stamps-N-Lingers 7

I designed the card based on the FabFriday challenge – making a pocket for the gift cards.

If you look – the gift cards are the “embellishment” on the right side. 🙂

I started with a Crumb Cake card base, and stamped a couple of the images from the In The City stamp set in Crumb Cake across the front.

The angled panel is a piece of Crushed Curry that I embossed in the Pinewood Planks Dynamic TIEF and then added some faux stitches with my Cajun Craze Stampin’ Write Marker.

Congrats on Your New Home - Stamps-N-Lingers 3

I stamped the door from the At Home With You set in Early Espresso onto a piece of Wood Textures DSP and cut it out with the die in the matching At Home Framelits.  

I popped the Crushed Curry panel onto the card base with Foam Adhesive Strips (I only used the foam on the top, bottom and left side – leaving the right side open for my gift cards) and then adhered the cut door with Liquid Glue.

Congrats on Your New Home - Stamps-N-Lingers 2

Then I got busy decorating my front door.  I stamped all the images from the At Home With You set in Early Espresso on Very Vanilla.  I pulled out a plethora of Stampin’ Write Markers to color everything:  Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive, Pear Wild Wasabi, and Tangerine Tango.

Once everything was colored and cut out with their matching dies in the At Home Framelits, I adhered everything with Liquid Glue and some Stampin’ Dimensionals.

For my sentiment, I cut the word using the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits – cutting three of them from Cajun Craze and stacking them with Liquid Glue.  I brushed it with my Clear Wink of Stella and adhered it to the front with Liquid Glue.

Congrats on Your New Home - Stamps-N-Lingers 7

I added a little Linen Thread Bow and a Touches of Nature Element with Liquid Glue.  Sticking my gift cards in completed the card!  

On the inside, I stamped a sentiment from the Home Life stamp set in Cajun Craze on a Very Vanilla mat.  Over the sentiment, I added more images from In the City in Crumb Cake.

Congrats on Your New Home - Stamps-N-Lingers 4

I added some more faux stitches in Cajun Craze, Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Crushed Curry mat and then into the card base, and that was it for the card.

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got more In the City Crumb Cake images across the front.

Congrats on Your New Home - Stamps-N-Lingers 5

…and then I added some more Wood Textures DSP to the envelope flap.

Congrats on Your New Home - Stamps-N-Lingers 6

Et Voila!  There’s more than one way to give someone some gift cards, yes?  And it seemed awfully appropriate to use the At Home With You bundle, Home Life and the In the City host-set.  I know Matt liked the card – it even got a spot on the refrigerator in his new house!  Hope you like, too!

Finn-Fan Fix  

So, today, while Wayne and I were looking thru a double-filtered welding helmet watching the not-to-be-seen-again-for-7-years eclipse, Finn was…bored.

I mean – nothing was happening.  It wasn’t particularly dark.

No aliens showed up.

No angels sang – no power went out.

Pretty nondescript kind of day.  

This is how his sister dealt with the event.

IMG_9517

Wishful thinking.  We were hoping to see this…

IMG_9515

What we really saw was….dim.

Just…dimness everywhere for about 2 minutes.  Even looking at the sun – we saw no corona.  No “diamond ring”.  Just a sliver of sun.

Kind of a let-down.

Finn’s response?

Let’s pull something out of the garden and see if anyone notices…

Stampin’ Up! Delightful Daisy Delight in the Round!

Happy weekend, y’all!  Hope yours is going well so far. 🙂  I thought I had to work today, but…my guys worked extra long last night and at 6:30 we realized we’d get the whole, entire, beautiful two weekend days off!!  Whoo-hoo-hoo-hoo-HOO!!! 🙂  I’m ready – and I know they sure are, too!

My card today is so quick and easy to put together – thanks to some beautiful Wood Textures DSP and Delightful Daisy DSP, a couple of stamped images from the matching Daisy Delight stamp set and some Circle Dies.  Take a look-see:

 

This unusual layout was inspired by the sketch challenge at Freshly Made Sketches this week.

And many of the elements were inspired by the inspiration photo from the Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge.

I had an Old Olive card base from a previous effort (that I ended up not using!) and it already had the front of the card base embossed in the new Pinewood Planks Dynamic TIEF.  It seemed sort of perfect for this one, so I just pulled it back out to use!  Sometimes it’s good to be a pack-rat!! 🙂

I started with a piece of Wood Textures DSP and ran it thru the Big Shot in the Pinewood Planks Dynamic TIEF, then I matted it on some Daffodil Delight card stock.  

After that, it was just a matter of cutting the Daffodil Delight scalloped circle mats and picking and cutting my favorite papers from the Delightful Daisy DSP.  I used the Circles Layering Framelits – making this a quick task.

Well…all but picking my favorite papers from the Delightful Daisy DSP pack.  That took a minute – too many to choose from! 🙂

I adhered everything together and then to the card front with Liquid Glue.

For my sentiment, I stamped the pretty one from Daisy Delight in Old Olive onto a Whisper White strip, snipped a banner end and then edged the whole thing with my Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Write Marker.

I cut a piece of 5/8″ Burlap Ribbon, cut the ends to a banner and attached it to my sentiment with a handheld stapler.  It’s popped on the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

To finish off, I tied a small bow with Linen Thread and attached it with a little dab of Liquid Glue, then added some Old Olive Glitter Enamel Dots, and the card front was done!

On the inside, I used the pretty little flower stamp from the Daisy Delight stamp set and stamped it a couple of times on a piece of Whisper White.  They each got a quick stem with my Old Olive Stampin’ Write Marker.  Then I cut it with another Circle Layering Framelits die and matted it on a scalloped Daffodil Delight mat.

I matted the panel on a Daffodil Delight mat and into my Old Olive card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more of the Daisy Delight flowers on the front…

…and then I added a little more of the Delightful Daisy DSP to the envelope flap.

 

Et Voila!  Even without the Daisy Punch, this Delightful Daisy Suite is wonderful and gorgeous!  And it combines so nicely with the Wood Textures DSP to make a quick and easy card.  Hope you like! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Floral Statements and a Graceful Garden Thanks

Good mornin’, y’all!  It’s Friday!  I’d say…whooo-hoo!…but, I have to work tomorrow, so…kinda pointless!  I hope that you do not and that you’ve got something fun planned!

So, I saw a beautiful card over on Billie Moan’s Rambling Rose Studio blogsite (you can see that one right here) and I thought it was so beautiful that I wanted to give it a shot.  

Well.  I did.  Give it a shot.  Let’s just say I’m not even on the target with Billie’s beautiful card.  But I did some Watercolor Pencil coloring with the new Floral Statements and Graceful Gardens and it turned out okay.  Take a look-see:

My layout was loosely inspired by the sketch at TGIF Challenges.

I made a mat for my card by stamping the new Burlap Background image in Crumb Cake ink on a panel of Crumb Cake card stock.  Then I tore the edges and sponged them with more Crumb Cake.

The art is from the Floral Statements stamp set – this is another one that I wanted the second I saw it!  I stamped it in Crumb Cake ink on another piece of Crumb Cake card stock.  Then I used my Crumb Cake Stampin’ Write Marker to darken and emphasize the letters.

I colored the flowers with my Watercolor Pencils.  First, I colored them all in with the White pencil.  Then I added Calypso Coral or Melon Mambo, adding shading as I went along.  The leaves are done with the Old Olive Watercolor Pencil only – no first layer in white.  I touched up the flower outlines with my Soft Suede Marker.

Using my ruler and fine-tip end of the Soft Suede Marker, I added the “frame” around the flowers and sponged the edges with Crumb Cake.  Then I added a length of Old Olive 1/8″ Sheer Ribbon around the panel, securing it in the back with scotch tape.

I SNAILd the panel to the Burlap-stamped mat and adhered an Old Olive 1/8″ Sheer Ribbon bow to it with a Glue Dot and the card front was done!

On the inside, I made another Crumb Cake mat by stamping it with the Burlap image in Crumb Cake, tearing the edges and then sponging them with more Crumb Cake.  I stamped a few images from the Graceful Garden stamp set onto a second Crumb Cake panel, coloring them in the same manner as the flowers on the front.  I also added a Soft Suede “frame”.

My card base is Soft Suede – and I embossed the front of it in the Pinewood Planks Dynamic TIEF, just to add a little more texture to my card!  Then I SNAILd my mat and inner liner on the inside, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals, and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got another flower from the Graceful Garden stamp set, in Crumb Cake, on the front…

…and some Graceful Gardens leaves on the envelope flap.  I left all these images in Crumb Cake so the flowers on the inside would pop even more!

Et Voila!  I was right!  This Floral Statements stamp set is flat out gorgeous!  One stamp – huge impact!  And the Graceful Gardens set complements it beautifully!!  Hope you like!

Finn-Fan Fix…Wayne sent me a picture!

But it’s kinda sad. 😦

Appears Finn has a hot spot.  Wayne thinks it’s ringworm, but…I’m pretty sure it’s a hot spot.

Regardless – Wayne’s putting medicine on it.

And Finn wants it off.

But it has to stay on.

Thus…

Poor puppy!

Seriously.  He’s got “poor pitiful me” down to an art form!!  🙂
