New At SU May Blog Hop 2021-2023 In Colors Fun Fold

Welcome to the New At SU May Blog Hop as we showcase the new 2021-2023 In Colors with a variety of Fun Fold ideas. You will be visiting with talented Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from around the world as they share their projects to help inspire you. 
I love clean and simple card designs, so I chose to create a simple fun fold today to showcase the beautiful Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper (item #155807) which features several of the wonderful new 2021-2023 In Colors. Fresh Freesia is one of these amazing new colors and I chose to use it as my main color for this card design. For the focal image, I chose the large detailed butterfly die from the Butterfly Brilliance Bundle (item #155821). This fun fold is perfect as a Spring birthday card to help celebrate someone's special day.

Around The World On Wednesday May Blog Hop Fancy Folds


Welcome to the Around the World On Wednesday May Blog Hop as we showcase Fancy Fold card designs. You will be visiting with talented Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from around the world as we share our ideas and projects to help inspire you. 
Today I am showcasing a Gate Fold card with a difference. I found this version on You Tube, shared by fellow Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, Connie Stewart. The measurements for this Gate Fold gives it an asymmetrical look. I used the Art Gallery Bundle (item #156227) with the coordinating Fine Art Floral Designer Series Paper (item #154558) from the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog to create this bold design. I love this beautiful combination of Poppy Parade, Flirty Flamingo, Old Olive and Basic White with just a touch of Gold embossing to step up the design. 
Products Used:
Art Gallery Bundle (item #156227)
Fine Art Floral Designer Series Paper (item #154558)
Stitched So Sweetly Dies (item #151690)
Stitched Rectangles Dies (item #151820)
Poppy Parade Cardstock (item #119793)
Flirty Flamingo Cardstock (item #141416)
Basic White Cardstock (item #159276)
Poppy Parade Classic Ink Pad (item #147050)
Flirty Flamingo Classic Ink Pad (item #147052)
Old Olive Classic Ink Pad (item #147090)
Versamark Pad (item #102283)
Metallic Embossing Powder (Copper, Gold, Silver - item #155555) 
Basic Rhinestone Jewels (item #144220)
White 1/4" Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon (item #151326)
Measurements:
Poppy Parade Cardstock
Card Base - 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" (Scored at 2 1/2" & 6 3/4")
Layer 1 - 2 3/4" x 3 7/8"
Basic White Cardstock
Scrap for flower image stamped and die cut with 
the Art Gallery Bundle
Focal Panel - die cut with Stitched So Sweetly Dies
Inside Panel - 5 1/4" x 4"
Fine Art Floral Designer Series Paper 
Front Panels - 2 1/4" x 5 1/4" & 1 1/2" x 5 1/4"
Inside Strip - 1/4" x 5 1/4"
Flirty Flamingo Cardstock
Sentiment Label - die cut with Stitched Rectangles Dies
The bold colors in the designer series paper really bring this card to life and I used these colors to choose the coordinating cardstock to create the design. The Poppy Parade card base makes the designer series paper panels pop and I used Old Olive to stamp the stem of the flower onto the Basic White focal panel to coordinate with the background pattern. To create the flower, I stamped the base image with Flirty Flamingo Classic ink and the second layer with Poppy Parade Classic ink to add depth and contrast. I die cut the flower and added it to the focal panel with Stampin' Dimensionals. Using Clear Wink of Stella, I added some shimmer to the flower image. I embossed the sentiment with Gold embossing powder and added the Flirty Flamingo label to the bottom of the focal panel with Mini Stampin' Dimensionals. For a touch of bling, I added Basic Rhinestones to the sentiment label and I added a small white bow to the stem of the flower with a Mini Glue Dot. To add the focal panel to the card front, I centered the panel and added glue to the left side of the back of the panel and attached it to the left flap of the card front. This way the card can still open and close. For the inside panel, I added the small strip of designer series paper along the bottom of the Basic White cardstock layer to dress it up. 
Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog. I hope that my card design will help inspire you to try creating your own fancy fold card and explore the wonderful possibilities out there.

ICS May Blog Hop It's A Guy Thing

Welcome to the ICS May Blog Hop with our theme this month of "It's A Guy Thing". Masculine projects are something that we often struggle to create. 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. With Father's Day coming up soon, we hope that our projects will help to spark your creativity to create your own wonderful masculine projects. 
With all the wonderful new products in the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog, you may be surprised to see that I have chosen to use two products that have carried over from the last catalog. I have had the Campology stamp set (item #152553) for a couple of months but this is the first chance I have had to ink it up. I paired it with the wonderful In Good Taste Designer Series Paper (item #152494) and I am so happy that we still have the amazing designs in this beautiful paper pack to create our projects. My favorite designs just happen to be the woodgrain patterns and I chose one of them for the background for my card design today. This clean and simple design has a rustic feel to it that works well in a masculine card and I think this would work well for a Father's Day card or a masculine birthday card. 
Products Used:
Campology stamp set (item #152553)
In Good Taste Designer Series Paper (item #152494)
Tailor Made Tags Dies (item #155563) New
Stitched So Sweetly Dies (item #151690)
Early Espresso Cardstock (item #119686)
Very Vanilla Thick Cardstock (item #144237)
Early Espresso Classic Ink Pad (item #147114)
Versamark Pad (item #102283)
Crumb Cake Stampin' Blends Combo Pack (item #154882)
Daffodil Delight Stampin' Blends Combo Pack (item #154883)
Linen Thread (item #104199)
Metallics Stampin' Embossing Powders 
(Copper, Gold, Silver - item #155555) New
Measurements:
Early Espresso Cardstock
Card Base - 8 1.2" x 5 1/2" (Scored at 4 1/4")
Reinforcement tag die cut with Tailor Made Tag Dies
Very Vanilla Thick Cardstock
Focal label die cut with Stitched So Sweetly Dies 
Sentiment Tag die cut with Tailor Made Tag Dies 
In Good Taste Designer Series Paper
Background Layer - 5 1/4" x 4"
This card design is simple to create and I love that the designer series paper background provides that Wow factor without being too over the top. For the focal image, I stamped the lantern onto the Very Vanilla Thick cardstock label with Early Espresso Classic ink and I colored it with Crumb Cake and Daffodil Delight Stampin' Blends Markers. A note of caution, make sure to allow the stamped image to dry before trying to color it, otherwise you will risk the ink bleeding, which is a problem I encountered with Daffodil Delight when I oversaturated the area. I would recommend adding a light layer of color and minimal blending to avoid this from happening to you. For sentiment, I heat embossed the image onto the tag label with Gold embossing powder and I added the Early Espresso Reinforcer tab to the tag so that it lined up around the hole of the tag. Using Linen Thread, I wrapped it around the designer series paper layer twice and then tied a knot towards the center of the card front. I added the focal image with Stampin' Dimensionals to the left side over the top of the thread. For the sentiment tag, I threaded one of the ends of the Linen Thread (from the knot) through the hole and tied another knot to secure the tag. I added Mini Stampin' Dimensionals to the back of the tag and attached it to the card front over the top of the Linen Thread that is wrapped around the card. The last step is to attach the card front to the card base with adhesive and you have a wonderful masculine card ready to give to someone special. As you can see, I kept the design very simple to avoid having the design be too busy. 
Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog today. I hope that my card design will help inspire you to create your own beautiful masculine projects with the amazing products in the Stampin' Up! Catalogs. There are so many wonderful options in the new 2021-2022 Annual Catalog to choose from.

Stamping Inkspirations May Blog Hop All Things Floral

Welcome to the Stamping Inkspirations May Blog Hop as we showcase all things floral as our theme. You will be visiting with talented stampers from around the world as they share their ideas and projects to help inspire you. 
When I saw this month's floral theme, I knew that I had to use the beautiful True Love Designer Series Paper (item #154281). The designs in this paper pack are stunning and perfect for coloring with Stampin' Blends Markers. I chose to use three of the new 2021-2023 In Colors for this elegant card design and paired it with the Happy Thoughts stamp set (item #154507) which has amazing sentiments for a variety of occasions. For the sentiment tag, I used the Tailor Made Tags Dies (item #155563), a new favorite of mine that works well with this stamp set. This clean and simple card design is all about the beautiful designer series paper and if you love coloring, then you will love creating cards with this pretty paper.

Card Front - 5 1/4" x 4"
Basic White Cardstock
Sentiment Tag die cut with Tailor Made Tags Dies
This beautiful card design is simple to create and requires just a few supplies to create. I wanted to showcase some of the new 2021-2023 In Colors, so I chose to use Soft Succulent, Pale Papaya and Polished Pink Stampin' Blends Markers to color the designer series paper and I added Clear Wink of Stella to the colored images for a touch of shimmer. For the sentiment, I heat embossed the Thank You with Gold embossing powder onto a Basic White cardstock tag that I die cut using one of the Tailor Made Tags Dies. These new tags have become my go to dies for creating sentiment tags and I love that there are two different styles to choose from. I die cut one of the small circle enforcers from Soft Succulent cardstock to add to the tag hole and threaded a piece of Soft Succulent Open Weave Ribbon through the hole. I tied a bow with White Baker's Twine around the Soft Succulent Ribbon to create a pretty embellishment that coordinated with the card design. For a touch of bling, I added three small Basic Rhinestone Jewels to the background to finish off the design. This card would work well for a variety of occasions including birthdays and Thinking of You. Coloring with Stampin' Blends Markers can be so relaxing and therapeutic and by changing the color combinations, you could create a beautiful set of cards as a gift. 
Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog. I hope that my card design inspires you to create your own beautiful floral cards. There are so many wonderful options and combinations to try with the amazing products in the Stampin' Up! catalogs.
