Brand New In-Colors 2020-2022 with Celebrate Sunflowers Stamp Set

Hello and welcome to my blog! I am happy you are here and taking a look at what I have created for you today. Today I am pairing all 5 brand new In-Colors for 2020-2022 with the Celebrate Sunflowers Stamp Set for my customer thank you cards this month.

I started with the basic card base which is 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" scored at 4 1/4".  I then added a piece of the coordinating In-Color DSP in each of the base colors alternating patterns.  These are cut at 2 1/2" x 6" and then trimmed once adhered for accurate measurement.

I then cut a piece of Whisper White Cardstock at 3 1/2" x 3 1/2" and stamped the big sunflower image from the Celebrate Sunflowers set in each of the 5 new In-Colors. I then adhered that to the card using Tombow glue.

For the Sentiment I used the Celebrate Sunflowers set and used "Thanks a Bunch" as these are easy to duplicate and are my customer thank you cards for June.  I used the triple banner punch to flag the end and stamped in Memento Black Ink! I know this is on back order right now so you could easily stamp it in the In-Color colors as well on Whisper White.

For embellishments I used each fo the new In-Color ribbons and enamel dots.

I hope you enjoy my cards. If you don't have a current Stampin' Up! demonstrator and love this cards and supplies I would love to help you.

Paper Crafting Blog Hop June 2020- Happy Birthday Theme

Hello and Welcome to our June Monthly Paper Crafting Blog Hop!  Thank you for hopping with us; we are glad to have you here.  Our theme for this month is Happy Birthday! We all need birthday cards to send all year long so what a perfect theme for this month!  We have talented Independent Stampin' Up! ® Demonstrators from around the world that are all participating this month.  You will see wonderful projects all from the brand new Annual Catalog.  You may have arrived from Sandra's blog and her project was amazing or you may be starting here with me.  Either way we are glad you are here and be sure to complete the whole hop! 

I have chosen the brand new stamp set called Celebrate Sunflowers from the new Annual Catalog that went live this month!  It is a stunning set, and has some great sentiments in it as well.  I will be featuring the dies that coordinate with this set as well and they are named Sunflower Dies.  I will also be using a few of the new In-Colors as well to make this card. 

My card base is 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", scored at 4 1/4" and is the new in-color Just Jade.  My first layer is going to Cinnamon Cider, another new in-color and it is 4" x 5 1/4" from the 6x6 Designer Series Paper Pack. I also cut a strip of 1/2" left over to put inside to complete my inside and will trim off the end once layered on the whisper white.  My final layer is Whisper White, cut at 3 3/4" x 5" for the front and then 4" x 5 1/4" for the inside layer. You will also need scraps of whisper white to stamp and cut your sunflowers for the card as well.

For the sunflower and the leaves, I decided to use VersaMark ink and White embossing powder and then I cut them out with the coordinating dies.  I colored them using my sponges and ink pads.  For the sunflower I used Cinnamon Cider for the inside, and Bumblebee, Daffodil Delight and Mango Melody to color the flower. For my leaves I used Pear Pizzazz and Granny Apple Green.  This is called the emboss resist technique and I love the result.

To assemble the card I used tombow glue for all the layers to adhere them together, and then I added some of the new Just Jade ribbon from the Flowers for Every Season ribbon combo pack.  I used dimensionals to adhere my sunflower to the front, and stamped my sentiment in Cinnamon Cider.  To finish it off I added some of the new in color enamel dots and added some wink of stella by flicking it on to the card. For the inside I simply used a strip of the cinnamon cider DSP and left the rest blank.

Thank you so much for hopping with us today and each month. We love for you join us and gain creativity.  Now click below to hop to the next spot in the hop which is Sandy Ward. I am sure she has an amazing project to share with us all. See you all next month.

Ornate Garden Suite-Mother's Day Card

Hello and thank you for stopping by my blog! I have made a swap for a group I am part of in Facebook and it was for a Mother's Day Card!

I have decided to use Ornate Garden Suite, paired with sentiments from Strong & Beautiful! I love this Ornate Garden Suite! I partially cased this card from another demonstrator, Jessica Brigden but I didn't add any of the die cut pieces as I was on a deadline and needed to produce 11 cards!

My measurements are as follows:

1. Blushing Bride Card Base- 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", scored at 4 1/4".
2. Terracotta Tile cut at 4" x 5 1/4".
3. Whisper White cut at 3 3/4" x 5". Inside piece is 4" x 5 1/4".
4. Ornate Garden Specialty DSP cut at 3 3/4" x 3 3/4".
5. Terracotta Tile Ribbon from suite at about 4 1/4".

I stamped all images in Terracotta Tile ink, and then added Champagne Rhinestones for some bling!

Enjoy! If you need any of these supplies to make this card, visit my shop now button on the main page of my blog!!

Happy Stampin' Everyone!

Saturday Night Spotlight- Using up Scraps of Designer Series Paper!!!

Tonight I did my Saturday Night Spotlight Facebook live and I featured using up scraps of DSP to make simple cards! I was inspired by a fellow demo Connie Stewart, and she is simply amazing at what she does! I used her ideas for a few cards changing colors but then made a few of my own as well! Sharing what we love, and loving what we do, it is okay to use others as your inspiration, simply give them credit.

All 4 of my cards featured Whisper White Thick for my card bases, cut at either 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", scored at 4 1/4" or they were 4 1/4" x 11", scored at 5 1/2".  I featured the Brights 6x6 DSP, which is now sold out, but you can use whatever DSP you have laying around that you have scraps of!! It does not matter!

Two of my cards had layers, which were 4" x 5 1/4", and then one had a layer of whisper white that was 3 3/4" x 5".

All of my scraps of DSP were 1" x 6" to start and then cut to fit each individual card!

I hope you enjoy! I used different sentiments from stamp sets in the annual or mini catalogs that are current, and some scraps and punches!!

Thanks for stopping by my blog today! I hope you enjoyed these cards and if you need any supplies and don't have a demo, simply click my Shop Now button on my blog and happy shopping and stamping!!!

Paper Crafting Blog Hop April 2020- Thinking of You

Thank you so much for joining our April Blog hop this month, featuring a theme of Thinking of you Girls!  We have talented Independent Stampin' Up! ® Demonstrators from around the world taking part in this special monthly blog hop.  You will see great projects from either the annual or mini current catalogs featured this month.  You may have arrived from Annette's  blog and her project was stunning and amazing!

I am featuring a stamp set from the Annual Catalog for you this month called Modern Heart! It is a stamp set designed by a Million Dollar Achiever Steffi Helmschrott. I knew I wanted this stamp set as soon as I saw it in the Annual Catalog as I love the geometric design and it has such beautiful sentiments in it as well.

I am also choosing to pair with with the soon to be retiring In-Color collection from 2018-2020 that will be retiring this June.  Those colors include Lovely Lipstick, Pineapple Punch, Call Me Clover, Blueberry Bushel and Grapefruit Grove! I am really going to miss these colors as they are so vibrant and beautiful. I am featuring Lovely Lipstick and Pineapple Punch, two of my favorites out of the 5.

My card base is in Lovely Lipstick, cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", scored at 4 1/4".  For my first layer I am using Pineapple Punch that is cut at 4" x 5 1/4".  My basic black layer is cut at 3 1/8" x 4 5/8" and my shimmery whisper white layer is cut at 3" x 4 1/2".

For the Pineapple Punch layer I took the small heart from the stamp set and stamped it with Pineapple Punch ink along the bottom edge for a tone on tone look. I used Vellum and Versamark ink to stamp my large heart and heat embossed it with the shimmer black embossing powder and used my heat tool to emboss it. I then fussy cut that heart out which is very easy to do.  I used the big watercolor image for the background of the heart and stamped it off first for a lighter effect using Lovely Lipstick ink.

For my sentiment I chose to use the one from this set and place it in the lower right side of my whisper white.  To finish off the front of the card I used my the In-color enamel dots to bling it out a bit. I used dimensionals to adhere the black layer to the Pineapple Punch layer, and tombow glue for all other layers.

For the inside of the card I simply stamped that small heart again along the bottom alternating with Pineapple Punch and Lovely Lipstick inks.  I wanted plenty of space to write a message to a friend during this time. I used a piece of Shimmery Whisper White Cardstock inside that measures 4" x 5 1/4".

Saturday Night Spotlight March 7, 2020 Modern Heart Stamp Set

Hello crafters! I am happy to bring you the Modern Heart Stamp Set from the Annual Catalog for this Saturday Night Spotlight Facebook live.  This stamp set was designed by a $1 Million achiever, Steffi Helmschrott and I have had my eye on it since the catalog went live.

I have created 3 beautiful cards, all Thank you cards, but for the beginner, casual and avid crafter in mind.  I hope you enjoy my cards and if you need to purchase this stamp set, please visit my shop now link on my blog main page or visit My Store HERE. All supplies I used tonight can be purchased through my store online. All measurements will be listed at end of this blog to make each card.

Look for more projects coming from me using this stamp set, paired with others, as it is such a versatile set. I only used 2 card colors tonight, Lovely Lipstick and Pineapple Punch, both In-Colors that will be retiring this June. So stock up now if you need them and love them like me.

For the beginner card I simply stamped the Thank you Sentiment in Lovely Lipstick all over the whisper white layer, and added in the small heart in Pineapple Punch to fill it in.  I layered that on Pineapple Punch and adhered to the Lovely Lipstick card base.

For the casual card, I stamped the large heart image in Lovely Lipstick, and then took the single watercolor image and stamped it in Pineapple Punch all the way up the heart without re-inking for the Ombre affect.  I added a piece of Black Satin Ribbon and punched the Thank you sentiment using a 1 1/2" circle punch.  I added a few Basic Rhinestones for some bling as well. 

For the avid crafter card, I decided to do a watercolor wash so I used the glimmer whisper white cardstock for this as it handles the water a bit better.  I used Pineapple Punch and Lovely Lipstick starting with Pineapple punch and going back if need be.  I then used the small solid heart in each color and added a few of each color.  For the big heart, I used Vellum cardstock, and heat embossed with the black glitter embossing powder and fussy cut it.  For the sentiment, I used the Stitched Nested Label dies on the glimmer cardstock and heat embossed that as well and  colored the heart with the Dark Pineapple Punch Stampin' Blend, as well as the basic rhinestones for bling. I again used the satin ribbon to tie a knot around both layers.
All the insides of the cards are the same and simply three of the small hearts in the same ink colors or cardstock used. 

Here are the measurements of the cards: 
1. Lovely Lipstick card base cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", scored at 4 1/4" for all 3 cards. 
2. Pineapple Punch layer is 4" x 5 1/4" for all three cards. 
3. Whisper White is 3 3/4" x 5" on all 3 cards (avid is glimmer). 
4. Whisper white inside is 4" x 5 1/4" on all 3 cards. 
5. About 4 1/2" ribbon for casual card, about 14" for avid card. 
6. A soap of whisper white for casual card, a scrap of glimmer white for avid card, and vellum for big heart for avid card. 

I hop you enjoyed these cards, and I look forward to seeing you again next week for another Saturday Night Spotlight.
