Stampin’ Up! Affectionately Yours DSP for the Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Logo for Amy's Inkin' Krew Team Blog Hop

It’s that time again! Time for another Inkin’ Krew blog hop. This month we are creating projects for Mother’s Day or a feminine card. I’ve chosen to feature the specialty designer series paper Affectionately Yours. This DSP is truly magnificent but, sadly, will not be available from Stampin’ Up! after May 31st, 2017.

Completed greeting card with a Night of Navy card stock base trimmed with a piece of colorful flowers from the Affectionately Yours specialty designer series paper.

The specialty designer series paper Affectionately Yours is truly magnificent and, sadly, will not be available from Stampin’ Up! after May 31st, 2017. The sentiment is the only “stamping” on this particular card, making this a very quick and easy creation. The sentiment, “Hoping Your Day IS Perfect,” is versatile and the hand written interior message can pin point the occasion—birthday, thank-you, etc., or can easily be used to send a simple note.

As usual, I started my project by cutting out the card stock (please see measurements near the end of this post.

Night of Navy card stock, card base, torn.

The base of the card is Night of Navy with a landscape orientation. Beginning about one-third of the way from the top, I tore the paper to produce the ragged look.

gold ribbon on card with Affectionately Yours specialty designer series paper adhered below the tear line on the base card.Next I wrapped the 1/8″ On-Trend Gold Ribbon and tied a bow on the top part of the Night of Navy card front. The piece of Affectionately Yours specialty designer series paper was then adhered with SNAIL to the front of the card beneath the Night of Navy.

 

Sentiment, "Hopping Your Day is Perfect embossed in gold with circular die placed on the Daffodil Delight card stock for cutting

 

I stamped the sentiment from the Suite Sentiments stamp set in VersaMark Ink on a scrap of Daffodil Delight card stock, sprinkled it with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder, and heat embossed it. The sentiment was then cut our with a circle from the Stitched Frames framelits dies.

 

The sentiment was adhered to the front of the card using dimensionals.

A piece of the dark Affectionately Yours Washi Tape was placed near the bottom of the interior message panel of the card.

You’ll find a complete list of supplies for this project, including card stock cuts, at the very bottom of this post.

Stampin’ up! Penned & Painted for the Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Logo for Amy's Inkin' Krew Team Blog Hop

The Penned & Pained stamp set by Stampin’ Up! is just perfect for a spring card. The card I designed for this blog hop contains a very generic sentiment on the card front so that the card is ready for just about any occasion.

Flower stamped in Wisteria Wonder on a white oval that is adhered to the card. The bottom of the card front is layered with a green and white polk-a-dot paper and adorned with a pice of white satin ribbon. The sentiment on the card reads, "Hoping Your Day Is Perfect."

My modus operandi when working on a stamping project is to, first, cut out my card stock and collect scraps of the needed colors from my scrap bin. Secondly, I stamp as much as I can before assembly.

In this instance, the sentiment is stamped directly on the upper forth of the Whisper White panel for the front of the card and the flower is stamped on a scrap of Whisper White that will accommodate the largest Stitched Oval die.

Let’s look at the stamping of the flower (also discussed in an earlier blog post last week).

 

 

 

 

 

 

The images immediately above demonstrate the two step stamping process that is used with the Penned & Painted stamps.Fortunately the stamp has an arrow at the top of each of these stamps that is used to assist you in lining up the second stamp (outline) for a cleaner image. The stem and leaves also use two steps for stamping in the same manner (the green background is used only to set off the piece of Whisper White for photographing, it has nothing to do with the project). After stamping the flower and its stem and leaves, use the largest Stitched Oval die to cut out the image.

Assembly

  1. Adhere the Serene Scenery DSP panel to the bottom (long side) of the Whisper White panel.
  2. Adhere the ribbon across the front of the card just below the top of the DSP panel.
  3. Adhere the Whisper White Stitched Oval with flower to the scalloped Pear Pizzazz oval.
  4. Use dimensionals to adhere the oval layers to the card front.
  5. On the interior Whisper White message panel lie a coordinating piece of designer washi tape across the bottom (long edge) and adhere this message panel to the inside of the card.

A list of Stampin’ Up! supplies and the card stock cuts are found later in this blog post.

This lovely card can be used for almost any occasion.

Penned & Painted

 

It is hard to believe that two months of 2017 have already passed. Soon it will be SPRING and I can’t wait. I’m a big fan of the two (or more) step stamps that have been developed by Stampin’ Up! The two step stamps give added interest and dynamics to any stamping project. For this project I’m using the delightful Penned and Painted photopolymer stamp set.

Image of the completed card front displaying a pink flower with green stem and leaves; pink ribbon and three layers of card stock, as well as the sentiment, "wishing you a beautiful day."

Instructions

Image displaying card stock and ribbon for the project: Sweet Sugarplum card stock and ribbon; Whisper White card stock; and Succulent Garden designer series paper

The checkered pattern in Whisper White and Sweet Sugar plum is refreshing and makes a nice layering panel for the lovely flower in the Penned & Painted stamp set.

At the beginning of a project I like to get my card stock trimmed to size first (card stock cutting dimensions are located later in this blog).

For this card all of the stamping is done using the three Whisper White pieces of Card stock. The sentiment is stamped on a scrap of Whisper White and cut out using the Classic Label punch. One of the border stamps from the Delicate Details photopolymer stamp set (a free Sale-A-Bration item) was used to stamp a border at the base of the interior message panel. The flower and leaves are stamped on the Whisper White layering panel.

 

The image immediately above demonstrates the two step stamping process that is used with the Penned & Painted stamps. The stem and leaves also use two steps for stamping.

Adhere the stamped front panel to the Sweet Sugarplum layering panel, and add the ribbon tied in a bow. Dimensionals are used to adhere this top layer to the card base layered with the DSP.

This lovely card can be used for almost any occasion.

Hey Chick for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Something New Blog Hop

Branding image stating, "Amy's Inkin' Krew Celebrate Themed Blog Hop, January 10, 2016.

The moment I saw Hey Chick in the new 2017 Sale-A-Bration catalogue, I just knew I had to have it. The stamp set is humorous and extremely versatile. Today I’m showcasing an interactive waterfall birthday card.

Front of completed waterfall card with an image of a "funky" chicken.

 

A hidden message is revealed when the waterfall panel is put into action by pulling gently on the twine at its base.

Card stock cuts are displayed at the bottom of this post.

 Image of the four square panels that will be attached to the waterfall action panel of the card.Use Basic Black ink to stamp the “Chick” on each of the four squares of Very Vanilla (1-7/8”) in various poses (see sample to the right)
Note: On three of the square take care not to stamp on the bottom ¾” of the card stock – that space will be carrying the sentiment.Stamp the Sentiments in Tip Top Taupe Ink within the bottom ¾” of the square.Use Calypso Coral ink to same the small flower (Best Birds stamp set) to the remaining white space of the upper portion of the square.Use the blender pen to give color to the chicks. I’ve used Calypso Coral, So Saffron, and accents of Watermelon Wonder.When the four squares are complete adhere each to a Tip Top Taupe 2″ square.
 Image showing the placement of the scoring marks for the waterfall panel.Score the Very Vanilla 2″ x 9¼” panel as indicated in the diagram immediately above. This panel will be referred to as the “waterfall” panel.

Use Basic Black ink to stamp the “funky chick” on the long end of the “waterfall” panel. Also stamp the “Happy Birthday” sentiment and the little flowers (both from the Best Birds stamp set) in Calypso Corel.
Note: this image will be hidden once the panel is fully constructed. The inked numerals are to indicate placement of the square panels on the “waterfall” panel.

 Image showing the waterfall panel with markings for the placement of the four square panels that will be attached.Adhere the ¾” x 5½” Calypso Coral panel to the bottom underside of the square marked “1” of the “waterfall” panel.

Next construct the top (visible) portion of the “waterfall” panel per the following images.

 Waterfall panel with one of the four squares attached.  Waterfall panel with two of the four squares attached.
 Waterfall panel with three of the four squares attached.  Waterfall panel ready to attach to the front panel of the card.
Place the “Waterfall” panel to the Tip Top Taupe front panel by carefully placing the piece in the center. Wrap the excess Calypso Coral piece around the front panel and secure with fast fuse adhesive to the back.  Waterfall panel being attached to the front panel of stamped hardwood.

Now attach this unit to the black card base and tie a piece ofVery Vanilla thick baker’s twine to the base of the “waterfall” panel.

Halloween Scenes Edgelits for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Fall/Halloween Blog Hop

Sign stating, "Amy's Inkin' Krew Fall/Halloween Blog Hop, September 13, 2016."

Today the theme for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop is “Fall/Halloween.” To honor the occasion, I have chosen to feature the Halloween Night Specialty Designer Series Paper and the Halloween Scenes Edgelits by Stampin’ Up!

Image of a small Halloween treat box cut from Halloween specialty paper by Stampin' Up! with a black bat and black dead tree cut from black card stock.

The completed little treat box measures 2-3/8″ wide, 1-1/2″ deep, and 3-3/8″ tall.

From a sheet of designer series paper cut a square 6″ by 6″ (one sheet of DSP that measures 12″ x 12″ will yield four treat boxes).

Image of Stampin' Up! designer series paper with white background and random dots in their colors: pumpkin pie, basic gray, and a gold shade.
Fig. 1

Envelope Punch Board directions

  1. Place the 6″ x 6″ square on the Stampin’ Up! Envelope Punch Board so that the left edge lines up with the 1-3/8″ mark. Now punch and score following the diagonal groove in the board.
  2. Slide the sheet to the left so that the left edge is lined up on the 4″ mark of the board. Punch and score.
  3. Rotate the paper counter clockwise 90°. Line up the first score line with the score guide (sometimes called the pointer) on the envelope punch board. Punch and score. See Fig. 3.
  4. Slide the paper to the left and line up the end of the second score line with the score guide. Punch and score.
  5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 two more times.
  6. Round each of the four corners of the square using the reverse punch (corner rounder) on the back side of the score guide. See Fig. 4.
  7. Fold and burnish all of the score lines.
    Your 6″ square should look like the image in Fig. 5.
  8. Snip along each of the score line next to the wide triangles (four score lines), stopping at the intersection of score lines that are perpendicular to the score line you are cutting. See Fig. 6.
  9. Use a paper punch to cut a hole at the top and bottom large triangles (these two holes to secure the box with baker’s twine). See Fig. 7.
  10. Place the tree and bat in the Halloween Scenes Edgelits Dies on the Basic Black card stock and run through the Big Shot. See Fig. 9 and 10.
  11. Stamp a sentiment, if you so desire, in Whisper White on the base of the tree cutout.

Box Assembly

  1. Apply a strong adhesive (such as Snail permanent adhesive) to the four flaps that will form the box structure. Two of the flaps are marked in Fig. 7  (turn the the project 180° and flaps 3 and 4 will be in the same position).
  2. Press the four flaps inward and secure. See Fig. 8.
  3. Press the remaining two small triangular flaps inward and secure using adhesive (press outward if you prefer to have a bit of contrast on your box).
  4. On one face of the box adhere the base of the tree (some branches of the tree will protrude from the edges), and adhere the bat.
  5. Place a treat or two in the box and secure the handle of the box using Halloween Night Baker’s Twine. Your final project will be similar to Fig. 11.

There a great many options for using this darling little treat box and, of course, the use is not limited to halloween. Simply change up the designer series paper and decorations for any occasion or season.

In the Meadow for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Last Blast of Summer Blog Hop

Sign stating, "Amy's Inkin' Krew Last Blast of Summer Blog Hop, August 9, 2016."

Today the theme for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop is “Last Blast of Summer.” To honor the occasion, I have chosen to feature In the Meadow stamp set by Stampin’ Up!

Note card sporting a doe and her fawn.

The last blasts of summer are upon us. The doe and her fawn in the Stampin’ Up! stamp set, In the Meadow, remind me that the speckled fawns will not be seen much longer as they are rapidly growing up.

After stamping the doe and fawn with Basic Blank ink, I used an aqua painter to color the pair with Tip Top Taupe. Old Olive was used for the grassy ground cover.

To add a bit of pizazz to the interior white panel, I stamped the clump of grass and flowers in Mint Macaron (from the same stamp set, In the Meadow).

Image of a bunch of wildflowers stamped with the mint macaron.

Falling Flowers for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Birthday Blog Hop

Banner stating, "Amy's Inkin' Krew Birthday Theme Blog Hop, July 12, 2016."

Today the theme for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop is birthday. I have chosen to feature Falling Flowers stamp set from Stampin’ up.

Nice cool watermelon. I’m not a fan of the heat and the very thought of watermelon helps me think cool, and is the inspiration for this birthday card.

Image of a spray of flowers stamped in Watermelon Wonder using the stamp set "Falling Flowers"

The flourish was stamped on both panels of whisper white at the same time.  I knew that I wanted the final placement of the smaller white panel to be one half inch from the top and and one half inch from the left side of the larger white panel, I used my rule and Stampin’ Up Grid paper to line up the panels. I then used a post-it note (placed on the lower left side of the smaller panel) to keep the two pieces in place while I stamped the flourish in Watermelon Wonder.

The sentiment was stamped on a scrap piece of whisper white using the Rose Wonder stamp set. Dimensionals were used to adhere the sentiment badge and rhinestones were added for a touch of bling.

Interior of the card stamped with three flowers in Watermelon Wonder color ink.

Two of the individual flower shapes in the Falling Flowers stamp set were used to add a bit of interest to the interior panel of the card.
