Colour Combo June Blog Hop

Welcome to the Colour Combo June Blog Hop as we showcase projects created with this month's color challenge of Polished Pink, Soft Sea Foam and Poppy Parade. You will be visiting with amazing Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from around the world as they share their ideas and projects to help inspire you. 
I love color combinations with bright, vibrant colors so I decided to create a clean and simple card with a black and white theme with a pop of color. For this card, I chose the Forever & Always stamp set, which is retiring from the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog, to create the background design and colored the images with Poppy Parade, Polished Pink and Soft Sea Foam Stampin' Blends Markers. To step up the design, I chose to heat emboss the sentiment with Gold embossing powder, for an elegant touch.
Products Used:
Forever & Always stamp set (item #154343) Retiring
Happy Thoughts stamp set (item #154507) Retiring
Painted Labels Dies (item #151605)
Basic Black Cardstock (item #121045)
Basic White Cardstock (item #159276)
Memento Tuxedo Black Pad (item #132708)
Versamark Pad (item #102283)
Poppy Parade Stampin' Blends Combo Pack (item #154958)
Polished Pink Stampin' Blends Combo Pack (item #155520)
Soft Sea Foam Stampin' Blends Combo Pack (item #154902)
Metallics Embossing Powders (item #155555)
Measurements:
Basic Black Cardstock 
8 1/2" x 5 1/2" (Scored at 4 1/4")
Sentiment Label die cut with Painted Labels Dies 
Basic White Cardstock
Card Front - 4" x 5 1/4"
For this clean and simple card design, I stamped the flowers and leaves images onto the Basic White cardstock layer with Memento Tuxedo Black ink to create the background design. I colored the large flowers with Light and Dark Poppy Parade Stampin' Blends Markers and the small flowers were colored with Light Polished Pink and Dark Poppy Parade Stampin' Blends Markers. I love how bold and vibrant these colors look with the black and white background. For the leaves and the centers of the flowers, I colored them with Light and Dark Soft Sea Foam Stampin' Blends. For the sentiment, I die cut the label from Basic Black cardstock and heat embossed the sentiment from the Happy Thoughts stamp set with Gold embossing powder. I love the sentiments in this stamp set and I am so sad that it is retiring. I attached the sentiment label to the center of the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals to pop it up.
Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog. I hope that my card design will help inspire you to explore this wonderful color combination to create your own projects. Combining bold colors with black and white is a wonderful way to showcase them.

Stamping Inkspirations June Blog Hop Splish Splash

Welcome to the Stamping Inkspirations June Blog Hop as we showcase projects with the theme "Splish Splash". You will have the opportunity to visit with talented crafters as they share their projects and ideas to help inspire you to create your own wonderful creations. 
When I think of Splish Splash, it reminds me of days at the beach, playing in the waves and searching for seashells. So I just had to use the beautiful Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set and the coordinating Seashells 3D Embossing Folder to create my card design. To create the background, I sponged Sahara Sand, Coastal Cabana and Bermuda Bay Classic ink onto a piece of Basic White cardstock to create the feel of the ocean. The embossing is actually debossed so that the design sinks down into the card rather than be raised. 
Products Used:
Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set (item #154368) 
Seashells 3D Embossing Folder (item #154309)
Stitched So Sweetly Dies (item #151690)
Bermuda Bay Cardstock (item #115317)
Sahara Sand Cardstock (item #121043)
Basic White Cardstock (item #159276)
Coastal Cabana Classic Ink Pad (item #147097)
Bermuda Bay Classic Ink Pad (item #147096)
Sahara Sand Classic Ink Pad (item #147117)
Versamark Pad (item #102283)
Bermuda Bay Stampin' Blends Combo Pack (item #154878)
Metallics Embossing Powder (Copper, Gold, Silver - item #155555)
Baker's Twine Essentials Pack (item #155475)
Basic Rhinestone Jewels (item #144220)
Measurements:
Bermuda Bay Cardstock
Card Base - 8 1/2" x 51/2" (scored at 4 1.4")
Basic White Cardstock
Layer 1 - 5 1/4" x 4"
Layer 2 - 5" x 3 3/4" sponged with Bermuda Bay, Coastal Cabana and Sahara Sand Classic inks
Sentiment Label heat embossed with Copper embossing powder
Sahara Sand Cardstock
Label die cut with Stitched So Sweetly Dies
This card is easy to create and the embossing adds wonderful texture to the background of this design. I love the way these colors work together to create the look and feel of the ocean and the Sahara Sand label adds a nice contrast to the design. I colored the Basic Rhinestones with Dark Bermuda Bay Stampin' Blends to coordinate with the card and added them to the sentiment label. 
Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog. I hope that my card design helps inspire you to explore creating your own wonderful projects using this theme. Embossing folders are a great way to add texture to your designs without a lot of extra work.

New At SU June Blog Hop Favorite New Suite

 

Welcome to the New At SU June Blog Hop as we showcase the amazing new Suites in the new 2021-2022 Annual Catalog. Suites are such a wonderful way to help you get creative as they provide you with coordinating products to help take the stress out of creating your own projects. You will be visiting with talented Stampin' Up! Demonstrators as they share their ideas and projects to help inspire you. 
The Beauty of The Earth Suite is a wonderful suite for all occasions all through the year. For my card  today, I chose to use all the products in this suite to show how well they work together. This design works well as a masculine card and I chose the colors for this design from the Beauty of the Earth Designer Series Paper. 
Products Used:
Beauty of the Earth Suite Collection (item #155843) New
Includes:
- Beauty of Friendship Bundle (item #155834)
- Beauty of the Earth Designer Series Paper (item #155841)
- Bark 3D Embossing Folder (item #155431)
Mossy Meadow Cardstock (item #133676)
Cinnamon Cider Cardstock (item #153078)
Basic White Cardstock (item #159276)
Early Espresso Cardstock (item #119686)
Old Olive Classic Ink Pad (item #147090)
Mossy Meadow Classic Ink Pad (item #147111)
Early Espresso Classic Ink Pad (item #147114)
Cinnamon Cider Stampin' Blends Combo Pack (item #153105)
Baker's Twine Essentials Pack (item #155475)
Basic Pearl Jewels (item #144219)
Measurements:
Mossy Meadow Cardstock 
Card Base - 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" (scored at 4 1/4")
Matte Layer - 3 5/8" x 1 5/8"
Cinnamon Cider Cardstock
Card Front - 5 1/4" x 4" Embossed with the Bark 3D Embossing Folder
Beauty of the Earth Designer Series Paper
Focal Layer - 1 3/8" x 3 3/8"
Basic White Cardstock
Sentiment Label die cut with Beautiful Trees Dies
Tree trunk and leaves images stamped and die cut with Beauty of Friendship Bundle 
Early Espresso Cardstock
Rectangle die cut with Beautiful Trees Dies
I love the way that these products combine to create this beautiful card design. The Bark 3D Embossing Folder adds wonderful texture to the background layer and helps make the focal design pop. I cut the focal image from one of the sheets from the Beauty of the Earth Designer Series Paper and layered it onto a Mossy Meadow cardstock matte. For the tree, I stamped the trunk with Early Espresso Classic ink and the leaves with Mossy Meadow and Old Olive Classic inks and then die cut them out with the coordinating dies. The sentiment was stamped on the Basic White label with Mossy Meadow Classic ink and layered onto the Early Espresso cardstock die cut. I colored two of the small Basic Pearls with the Dark Cinnamon Cider Stampin' Blends Marker and added them to the sentiment label. The Crumb Cake Baker's Twine (from the Baker's Twine Essentials Pack) has been wrapped around the card front twice and tied in a knot of the right side of the card. I added the focal image over the top of the baker's twine with Stampin' Dimensionals and added the tree to the left side of the focal image. To complete the card design, I attached the sentiment below the focal image, offsetting it to the right, with Stampin' Dimensionals.  The products in the Beauty of the Earth Suite made it simple to create this card and the coordination of products took the stress out of my creative experience.
Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog. I hope that my card design will help encourage you to explore the products in the Beauty of the Earth Suite and inspire you to create your own wonderful projects.

Around The World On Wednesday June Blog Hop Step it Up Fun

Welcome to the Around The World On Wednesday June Blog Hop as we share projects with the theme "Step It Up Fun". You will be visiting with amazing Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from around the world as they share their ideas to help you step up your projects to take your creativity to the next level.
As you all know, my style is more clean and simple than fancy, so when it came to creating my designs, I chose to do a simple design and a stepped up version that is still fairly simple to create. For both cards, I chose to use the Color & Contour Bundle and Fresh Freesia, one of the beautiful new 2021-2023 In Colors that were released last month. Both of these cards have a soft, pretty feel to them which make them perfect for Spring and Summer occasions.
Products Used:
Color & Contour Bundle (item #158356) New
Fresh Freesia Cardstock (item #155613) New
Basic White Cardstock (item #159276)
2021-2023 In Colors 6"x6" Designer Series Paper 
(item #155641) New
Fresh Freesia Classic Ink Pad (item #155611) New
Soft Succulent Classic Ink Pad (item #155778) New
Fresh Freesia Stampin' Blends Combo Pack (item #155518) New
Soft Succulent Stampin' Blends Combo Pack (item #155521) New
Memento Tuxedo Black Pad (item #132708)
Versamark Pad (item #102283)
Metallics Stampin' Emboss Powders 
(Copper, Gold, Silver - item #155555) New
Fresh Freesia 3/8" Open Weave Ribbon (item #155615) New
Basic Rhinestone Jewels (item #144220)
Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush (item #141897)
 Card #1 Measurements:
Fresh Freesia Cardstock
Card Base 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" (scored at 4 1/4")
Basic White Cardstock
Label die cut with Scalloped Contours Dies
Card #2 Measurements:
Fresh Freesia Cardstock
Card Base - 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" (scored at 4 1/4")
Basic White Cardstock
Label die cut with Scalloped Contours Dies
1/2" x 5 1/2" Strip - die cut with Scalloped Contours Dies
Inside layer - 5 3/8" x 4 1/8" 
Fresh Freesia Designer Series Paper
1/2" x 5 1/2" strip
Card #1 is a simple card to create with the main focus on stamping to decorate the card. I stamped the sentiment and splatter image with Fresh Freesia Classic ink on to the card base. For the label, I stamped the floral outline image with Soft Succulent Classic ink and then stamped the flower solid image with Fresh Freesia Classic ink. I attached the label to the card base with Stampin' Dimensionals to complete the design. For a touch of shimmer, I added Clear Wink of Stella To the flowers to complete the card. 

For Card #2, I die cut the edge of the card base on the right side with the scalloped edge die and repeated the process on the Basic White cardstock strip. I attached the strip to the card base on the left side of the card and attached the Fresh Freesia Designer Series Paper layer so that the scallops were visible. Using a piece of the Fresh Freesia Open Weave Ribbon, I wrapped it around the card base along the seam of the designer series paper and tied a knot towards the top. For the label, I stamped the sentiment with Versamark ink and heat embossed with Silver embossing powder. To create the floral image, I stamped it with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto a piece of Basic White cardstock and colored the image with the Fresh Freesia and Soft Succulent Stampin' Blends Markers. I then die cut the image with the coordinating die. I attached the label to the card base so that it overlapped the ribbon and designer series paper. I attached the die cut flower to the label on the left side and added Basic Rhinestones for a touch of bling. To finish off the card, I added Clear Wink of Stella to the flowers and leaves for a touch of shimmer. The inside White cardstock layer helps to make the scalloped edge on the front of the card pop. 
Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog. I hope that my cards will help inspire you to try stepping up your own designs and experimenting with the different options that Stampin' Up!'s products have to offer.

ICS June Blog Hop 2021-2023 In Colors

Welcome to the ICS June Blog Hop as we showcase projects using the new 2021-2023 In Colors. You will be visiting with talented Stampin' Up! Demonstrators as they share their ideas and projects to help inspire you to create your own beautiful projects.
The 2021-2023 In Colors are beautiful vibrant colors and I love how they combine together to create wonderful combinations for projects. For my card design today, I chose to use Evening Evergreen and Soft Succulent, one of my favorite combinations. I think these two greens will be perfect for the holidays and I see Evening Evergreen as a beautiful Christmas green.  
For this Christmas card design, I chose to use the new Tidings of Christmas 6"x6" Designer Series Paper (item #155718) with the Perfectly Plaid stamp set. I love the designs in this paper pack and the sentiment I chose has a beautifully elegant font that looks great when heat embossed. The sentiment tag was created using one of the Tailor Made Tags Dies, one of my new favorite die sets from the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog. While it may be too early for some people to be thinking about Christmas, I can't wait to explore more possibilities with these beautiful colors and this festive new designer series paper.
Products Used:
Perfectly Plaid stamp set (item #158335)
Tidings Of Christmas 6"x6" Designer Series Paper 
(item #155718) New
Tailor Made Tags Dies (item #155563) New
Evening Evergreen Cardstock (item #155574) New
Soft Succulent Cardstock (item #155776) New
Sahara Sand Cardstock (item #121043)
Evening Evergreen Stampin' Blends Combo Pack 
(item #155517) New
Versamark Pad (item #102283)
Metallics Stampin' Emboss Powder 
(Copper, Gold. Silver - item #155555) New
Evening Evergreen 3/8" Open Weave Ribbon (item #155573) New
Soft Succulent 3/8" Open Weave Ribbon (item #155780) New
Baker's Twine Essentials Pack (item #155475) New
Basic Rhinestone Jewels (item #144220)
Measurements:
Evening Evergreen Cardstock
Card Base - 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" (Scored at 4 1/4")
Soft Succulent Cardstock
Layer 1 - 5 1/4" x 4"
Tidings of Christmas Designer Series Paper
Card Front - 5" x 3 3/4"
Sahara Sand Cardstock
Sentiment Label die cut with Tailor Made Tags Dies
This clean and simple Christmas card design is easy to duplicate and would be perfect for creating multiples. I love creating Christmas cards at this time of the year because you don't have the stress of the holidays to deal with and it's always fun to play with new products. For the sentiment, I used Copper embossing powder on the Sahara Sand cardstock tag to coordinate with the colors in the designer series paper. I colored three of the Basic Rhinestones with the Light Evening Evergreen Stampin' Blends Marker to add a touch of bling without being over the top. The combination of the Evening Evergreen and Soft Succulent Ribbons helps finish off the design and I used the Gray Granite Baker's Twine from the Baker's Twine Essentials Pack to tie a knot at the base of the ribbons. This design would also work well as a masculine card for the holidays.
Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog. I hope that my card design helps inspire you to explore the beautiful new 2021-2023 In Colors and the wonderful coordinating products that Stampin' Up! has to offer. There are so many great options to choose from.
