PPP February Blog Hop Bouquet Of Hope

 

It's time to hop along with the Paper Pumpkin Possibilities (aka PPP) February Blog Hop as we share alternative projects featuring the Bouquet of Hope Kit. You will be visiting with talented Stampin' Up! Demonstrators as they share their ideas to help you think outside the box with this beautiful Paper Pumpkin Kit.
Today I have two different card designs to share with you. One uses products from the kit, including the floral image and sentiments from the exclusive stamp set while the other combines one of the designs from the Flower & Field Designer Series Paper (item #155223) with the Healing Hugs stamp set (item #148223) from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog. This beautiful paper is a Level 1 Reward you can earn Free with a qualifying order during Sale-a-bration, which ends February 28th. It coordinates beautifully with this kit and offers a variety of designs to choose from. 
Products Used:
Paper Pumpkin February 2021 Kit Bouquet Of Hope
Flower & Field Designer Series Paper (item #155223) 
Level 1 Sale-a-bration Reward
Healing Hugs stamp set (item #148223)
Layering Ovals Dies (item #151771)
Just Jade Cardstock (item #153079)
Merry Merlot Cardstock (item #146979)
Versamark Pad (item #102283)
Gold Embossing Powder (item #109129)
Measurements:
Card 1
Merry Merlot Floral Card Base from kit
Gold Foil Doily
Merry Merlot Cardstock for Oval die cut with Layering Ovals Dies
Sentiment Label from kit
Small Floral die cut from kit
Card 2
Just Jade Cardstock Card Base - 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" (Scored at 4 1/4")
Flower & Field Designer Series Paper Layer - 5 1/4" x 4"
Large Floral die cut from kit
Sentiment Label from kit
Both of these cards are simple to create and I added heat embossing to both to step up the designs. For the first card, I heat embossed the floral image from the stamp set with Gold Embossing Powder onto a piece of Merry Merlot cardstock and die cut it with the Layering Ovals Dies. I attached it to the Gold Foil doily from the kit and added it to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals. I heat embossed the sentiment onto the label with Gold Embossing Powder and added it across the bottom of the oval with Stampin' Dimensionals. To embellish the card I added one of the small floral die cuts to the sentiment label and two of the small Black sequins. For the second card, I used a piece of Just Jade cardstock for the card base and added a layer of the Flower & Field Designer Series Paper for the card front. I added the large floral die cut from the kit to the top of the card front, at an angle, using Stampin' Dimensionals. For the sentiment, I used one of the images from the Healing Hugs stamp set, heat embossing it with Gold Embossing Powder onto the sentiment label from the kit. I added the Mossy Meadow Bakers twine to the back of the sentiment label, creating two big loops. I added it to the card front towards the bottom with Stampin' Dimensionals. To finish off the design, I added three of the Black sequins for a touch of bling. I love that the designer series paper gives this card design a more cheerful feel that is perfect for a Get Well card. 
Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog today. I hope that my card designs will help inspire you to explore creating your own alternative projects using this wonderful kit. These beautiful cards can be used for a variety of occasions to help brighten someone's day.

Colour Combo February Blog Hop

 

Welcome to the Colour Combo February Blog Hop as we share creative projects using Flirty Flamingo, Pacific Point and Soft Sea Foam. You will be visiting with talented Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from around the world as they share their ideas to help inspire you. 
For my card design, I chose to use the Sale-a-bration stamp set, A Touch Of Ink, which is a Level 2 Reward that you can earn Free with a qualifying order. I just love the images in this stamp set and it has beautiful sentiments that make it perfect for creating wonderful cards. It's also a great stamp set for coloring and I used both the Stampin' Blends Markers and Classic ink with a Blender Pen to color the images. 
Products Used:
A Touch Of Ink stamp set (item #155233) 
Level 2 Sale-a-bration Reward
Stitched So Sweetly Dies (item #151690)
Stitched Shapes Dies (item #152323)
Layering Squares Dies (item #151772)
Pacific Point Cardstock (item #111350)
Soft Sea Foam Cardstock (item #146988)
Basic White Cardstock (item #159276)
Pacific Point Classic Ink Pad (item #147098)
Flirty Flamingo Classic Ink Pad (item #147052)
Soft Sea Foam Classic Ink Pad (item #147102)
Memento Tuxedo Black Ink Pad (item #132708)
Flirty Flamingo Stampin' Blends Combo Pack (item #154884)
Soft Sea Foam Stampin' Blends Combo Pack (item #154902)
Blender Pens (item #102845)
Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush (item #141897)
Basic Pearl Jewels (item #144219)
Measurements:
Pacific Point Cardstock
Card Base - 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" (scored at 4 1/4")
Scalloped Square die cut with the Layering Squares Dies
Soft Sea Foam Cardstock
Card Front Layer - 5 1/4" x 4"
Basic White Cardstock
Stitched Square die cut with the Stitched Shapes Dies
Sentiment Label die cut with Stitched So Sweetly Dies
Small piece for stamped butterfly from the A Touch Of Ink stamp set, fussy cut
This card used the outline images for the flowers, leaves and the butterfly to create the card design. I stamped the background of the Soft Sea Foam cardstock with the leaves image using Soft Sea Foam Classic ink for a tone on tone look. For the square, I stamped the flowers and leaves with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored them with Flirty Flamingo and Soft Sea Foam Stampin' Blends Markers and then stamped the small dots image with Soft Sea Foam Classic ink to create a soft background. I layered the Basic White square onto the scalloped Pacific Point square to create a small border. For the butterfly image, I stamped it onto Basic White cardstock with Tuxedo Black ink and colored it with Pacific Point Classic ink and Flirty Flamingo Classic ink with a Blender Pen. I chose this method of coloring as there is no Pacific Point Stampin' Blends Markers and I wanted to try and create the same intensity of color by layering the ink with the Blender Pen. For the sentiment, I stamped the image with Pacific Point Classic ink onto a Basic White label die cut with one of the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. I added two small Basic Pearls that I colored with the Dark Flirty Flamingo Stampin' Blends Marker, for a touch of bling. Using the Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush, I colored over the flowers, leaves and the butterfly image to add a soft shimmer. I used Stampin' Dimensionals to add the sentiment label and the butterfly to the card front, with the butterfly's legs overlapping on top of the sentiment label. 
Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog. I hope that my card design helps inspire you to explore this wonderful color combination when creating your own beautiful projects.

Stamping Inkspirations February Blog Hop Love Is In The Air

It's time to hop along with the Stamping Inkspirations February Blog Hop as we celebrate the theme, "Love Is In The Air". With Valentine's Day just hours away, I hope that our projects and ideas help inspire you to create your own beautiful projects from the heart. 
Often when we think of Valentine's Day, we think of romantic love but today I wanted to share a card I designed that was inspired by my daughters. The Hearts & Kisses Bundle (item #156201) from the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog is perfect for creating fun card designs with a touch of "sassitude", a word that I would use to describe both of my girls and their approach to life. Watching them grow up into the beautiful young women that they have become, has been an emotional journey full of pride and I wanted this card to reflect that. I paired this bundle with one of the designs from the 2019-2021 In Color 6"x6" Designer Series Paper Pack (item #153071) and the Ornate Layers Dies (item #152726). I love Rococo Rose and while neither of my girls could be described as "pink lovers" I felt like this color added a modern feel to the design. 
Products Used:
Hearts & Kisses Bundle (item #156201)
Ornate Layers Dies (item #152726)
2019-2021 In Color 6"x6" Designer Series Paper (item #152726)
Rococo Rose Cardstock (item #150882)
Basic Black Cardstock (item #121045)
Blackberry Bliss Classic Ink Pad (item #147092)
Versamark Pad (item #102283)
Gold Embossing Powder (item #109129)
Black 3/8" Glittered Organdy Ribbon (item #147897)
Gold Glitter Enamel Dots (item #152155)
Stampin' Dimensionals (item #104430)
Measurements:
Rococo Rose Cardstock
Card Base - 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" (Scored at 4 1/4")
Piece for the stamped images from the Hearts & Kisses stamp set
Basic Black Cardstock
Matte Layer - 5 3/8" x 4 1/8" 
Sentiment Layer die cut with the Ornate Layers Dies
Rococo Rose Designer Series Paper Layer - 5 1/4" x 4"
This stepped up clean and simple card design is easy to create and can work for a variety of occasions. I love how the Gold embossing pops against the Basic Black cardstock for the sentiment and the way it adds detail to the background on the Rococo Rose Designer Series Paper. I stamped the lips and lipstick images from the Hearts & Kisses stamp set with Blackberry Bliss Classic ink onto Rococo Rose cardstock, fussy cutting the lipstick and punching out the lips with the coordinating Kiss Punch. I added the sentiment label to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals, positioning at an angle. I added the punched out lips to the bottom left corner of the sentiment label with adhesive and attached the lipstick to the bottom left corner of the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals. I colored both of these images with Clear Wink of Stella for a touch of shimmer. To embellish the card design, I added three small Gold Glitter Enamel Dots to the sentiment label and added a piece of the Black Glittered Organdy Ribbon, folded in half, underneath the label so that it peeks out from under the right bottom corner. 
Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog. I hope that my card design helps inspire you to create your own beautiful projects from the heart. There are so possibilities to choose from that are suitable for all ages and occasions.

 Welcome to the Ink. Stamp. Share. February Showcase Blog Hop as we share the projects we are currently working on. You will have the opportunity to visit with talented Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from around the world as they share their ideas and projects to help inspire you. 
Today I am sharing a sympathy card I created with products from the 2021 Sale-a-bration Catalog. I love the gorgeous Oh So Ombre 6"x6" Designer Series Paper (item #155225) and I paired a piece of the Blackberry Bliss paper with the images from the Corner Bouquet stamp set (item #155273) and the sentiment from the Heal Your Heart stamp set (item #155291). I love that you can earn each of these exclusive products free with a qualifying order during Sale-a-bration. They are so versatile and I have been having so much fun creating projects with them.

Scrap piece for small Dragonflies punched using the Dragonflies Punch
Sympathy cards are never easy to create and I love that the beautiful images in Corner Bouquet stamp set have a serene feel to them that works well for this type of card. The font for the sentiments in the Heal Your Heart are so elegant and work beautifully with the Corner Bouquet stamp set to create a classically beautiful design with the pretty Blackberry Bliss Ombre Designer Series Paper. I heat embossed the sentiment and floral image with White Embossing Powder to step up the design and I added two of the small dragonflies to the card front that I colored with Clear Wink Of Stella for a touch of shimmer. The small Basic Pearls finish off the card design beautifully as accents for the small dragonflies. I colored a piece of Whisper White 1/4" Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon with the Dark Blackberry Bliss Stampin' Blends Marker and added it to the bottom of the card front as a contrast to the White embossing. For the inside of the card, I stamped the floral image twice in the bottom left and top right of the Basic White layer using Blackberry Bliss Classic ink to coordinate with the card front. I love the simplicity of this card design and I feel like it has a peaceful feel to it that is comforting. 
Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog today. I hope that my card design helps inspire you to create your own beautiful cards. There are so many wonderful products to choose from in the 2021 Sale-a-bration Catalog.
