Relaxing with Paradise Palms for the Ink and Inspiration Blog Hop-January 2023

Hello fellow stampers! You are visiting with Theresa McEntee-author of Theresa’s Treasures Paper Crafts. I am hopping with the Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop today. There are several of us- you will find the list to follow the hop at the end of my blog post.

The Ink & Inspiration Challenge is both an image and a color challenge. I was inspired by the feeling of warmth and peace in the image. I could picture myself relaxing on the beach with the waves rolling in. The colors were also very inspirational and add to the feeling of peace and warmth.

I had the idea of using the Window Sheets to stamp some palms on in black to be in the shade. This created a feeling of depth to my card. I had never used the Window Sheets in this way. It was very fun to create something different! The images are from the Paradise Palms stamp set.

Here is how the card looks with the Window Sheet layer opened up. Several colors were used to create the scene. These included Tahitian Tide, Bermuda Bay, Coastal Cabana, Old Olive, Crumb Cake and Mango Melody. The colors were applied with the Blending Brushes.

Kylie’s International Blog Highlights Gallery-January 2023: Two-Tone Flora & Something Fancy Thank You

I am so excited to be participating in Kylie Bertucci’s International Blog Highlight Gallery with my Two-Tone & Something Fancy Thank You card, along with Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from around the world! The theme for this Gallery is “Thank You”.

We often forget those simple words – “Thank you”. However, it really is important to show your appreciation to the people in your life who have helped you or inspired you in some way. And don’t forget those who have supported you. Be sure to send a handmade thank you card to express your appreciation often. Spread joy! We really need more joy in the world today!

This thank you card spotlights the Two-Tone Flora stamp set, Two-Tone Flora Dies, Something Fancy stamp set & Something Fancy Dies, The Embossing Folder is the new Cane Weave 3D. The cool geometric paper is the Dandy Designs 12 x 12 inch Designer Series Paper (DSP), FREE during Sale-a-bration with a qualifying order. The current Host Code is MBR2U6TN.

Measurements

  • Basic White card stock (cs) card base: 4 1/4 x 11 inches with a score line at 5 1/2 inches

    3 x 3 inches (to die-cut the stitched circle) and enough scrap to stamp all of the images on

    2 1/4 x 5 1/8 inches

Supplies

Instructions

  • I recommend using the Stamparatus for Two-Step Stamping. I find it is much easier to line up the second stamp. Each flower is a Two-Step Stamp. Stamp the larger part of the flower in Petal Pink Ink first. Then stamp the detailed stamp in Calypso Coral. The small bunch of flowers is stamped in Fresh Freesia Ink first. Then stamped in Blackberry Bliss Ink. Use the Blackberry Bliss Stampin’ Write Marker to draw the center of each of the Petal Pink flowers.
  • Next, stamp the “Thank You” sentiment in Blackberry Bliss Ink. Die cut the sentiment using the Something Fancy Dies.
  • Use the Stylish Shapes Dies to die cut the 2 1/2 inch stitched circle and the banner.
  • Use the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine to emboss the 4 x 5 1/4 inch Calypso Coral cs with the Cane Weave Embossing Folder
  • Adhere the Cane Weave card piece to the front of the Basic White cs card base.
  • Adhere the Dandy Designs DSP to the 2 1/4 x 5 1/8 inch Petal Pink cs. Then adhere this to the left side of the card front.
  • Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the sentiment.
  • Adhere the Petal Pink cs banner. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the Basic White cs stitched circle.
  • Place the flowers as desired. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals on some flowers. Add the leaves.
  • Color the White Seam Binding Ribbon with the Dark Fresh Freesia Stampin’ Blend Alcohol Marker. Tie into a bow. Adhere to the card front with a Mini Glue Dot.

Bling! Use the Adhesive-Backed Milky Dots in Petal Pink to add Bling! to the card front.

Voila!

Experiment with different colors to see which one you like best!

I am so excited to be in Kylie Bertucci’s International Blog Highlight Gallery along with Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from around the world! The theme for the Gallery is “Thank You”.

We often forget those simple words – “Thank you”. However, it really is important to show your appreciation to the people in your life who have helped you or inspired you in some way, as well as those who have supported you, by sending a handmade thank you card.

  • Paper for table to blend ink onto
  • Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • Adhesive (glue or tape runner)
  • Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine

Instructions

Blending the Card Front

Please see my blog HERE for another look at the technique to make a mountain and valley with the Blending Brushes.

  1. Stamp the sentiment in Blackberry Bliss Ink onto the 1 inch strip of Shimmery White cs. Use the label die in the Fabulous Frames Dies to cut it out. Set aside

2. Use the sticky note tape to secure one of the 4 1/8 x 5 3/8 inch Shimmery White cs to the paper covering your table. Tear the copy paper into strips to create the mountains and valleys. Tip: I had a torn strip for each color I used to avoid having the colors mix into an ugly brown when blending.

3. Secure the torn copy paper to start at the top of the Shimmery White cs. Blend on the Rich Razzleberry Ink on the right side. Then blend in the Fresh Freesia Ink. Remove the paper, move it down a bit and secure. Then blend on more Fresh Freesia Ink.

4. Use a different strip to blend in the Starry Sky Ink. Then another strip for the Evening Evergreen. Leave the strip for the Evening Evergreen Ink in place. Stamp Off some of the small pine trees from the Peaceful Deer stamp set in the Evening Evergreen Ink then stamp onto the Shimmery White cs. Move the strip of torn copy paper down. Then blend in another layer of the Evening Evergreen Ink. Stamp Off a few more of the small pine trees and stamp onto the card piece with the torn copy paper in place.

5. Remove the strip after the 2nd layer of Evening Evergreen Ink. Stamp the medium and large pine trees in Evening Evergreen Ink. Reapply the strip and blend a 3rd layer. Stamp some medium pine trees around the larger trees.

6. Apply one layer of Daffodil Delight Ink. Finish up with Pumpkin Pie Ink in the lower left-hand corner.

Blending the Inside of the Card

1. Use the second 4 1/8 x 5 3/8 inch Shimmery White cs for the inside of the card. Apply the sticky tape to mask all but a 1/2 inch strip on the right. Apply the ink as described above. Remove the mask.

Assembling the card

  1. Adhere the inside card piece to the inside of the Blackberry Bliss cs card base.

2. Adhere the Sun Print DSP to the front of the card base.

3. Cut the first Shimmery White cs card piece to 3 x 4 1/4 inches. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere it at an angle to the front of the card base. Adhere the ornate Blackberry Bliss cs photo corners.

4. Add the sentiment. You can add some Bling if you like. (I actually forgot! I made this card as I was headed out to Nashville to see my 1st grand baby, so I hope you can forgive me this one time! Lol!)

Voila! You have a very artistic mountain scene for a special handmade thank you card!

Thank you for visiting today. I hope you try this technique. It is very fun and rewarding.

Framed Florets Mountain Scene for the Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop – November 2022

Hello and welcome to the Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop! You are currently visiting Theresa’s Treasures written by Theresa McEntee- USA. I hope you enjoy my Framed Florets Mountain Scene card.

In order to make this card, I used Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Deer and Season of Chic stamp sets. The frames are part of the Framed Florets Dies.

Today everyone is sharing their inspiration from this colorful Scene & Color Challenge. There are several of us hopping today. My Framed Florets Mountain Scene card is just one idea. You will find a list of participants for you to follow along at the end of my blog post. Visit each blog for awesome ideas!

I was very inspired by the gorgeous, colorful mountain scene! The Stampin’ Up! colors match perfectly. Today I am using all of the colors!

I was able to achieve the mountain scene by using the Blending Brushes and a torn piece of copy paper.

Create the Mountain Scene

Trace the inner border of the larger frame from the Framed Florets Dies onto a 3 1/2 x 4 1/2 inch Basic White card stock(cs). Tear some copy paper strips. Secure the Basic White cs with repositionable tape. Secure the strip of copy paper as well. Start on top with the Fresh Freesia Ink and a Blending Brush. Apply the ink lightly at first. Darken to your liking. Add a small amount of the Orchid Oasis Ink in the upper right corner. Remove the copy paper mask.

Add the Trees

Move the copy paper down a bit and apply the Fresh Freesia Ink again. You may shift the copy paper strip, or even turn it over for variation. Continue moving down and use the Starry Sky Ink. After a couple of layers, use the Evening Evergreen Ink to stamp the trio of pine trees. The trees are in the Peaceful Deer stamp set. Re-apply the copy paper strip at the same level and stamp the smaller trees. Stamp off on some trees. This will give a 3D effect.

Continue to move the copy paper strip down. Switch to the Evening Evergreen Ink. Finish up with the Daffodil Delight Ink. Add a touch of Pumpkin Pie Ink on the bottom left. Tip: The Daffodil Delight Ink layer is in line with the hill under the stamped tree on the left.

Measurements

  • Basic White cs card base: 8 1/2 x 11 inches scored at 4 1/4 inches
  • Basic White cs: 1 x 3 1/4 inches for the sentiment
  • Evening Evergreen cs: 4 1/8 x 5 3/8 inches, 4 x 5 inches for the large frame and 3 1/2 x 4 1/2 inches for the inner frame.
  • Texture Chic 12×12 inch Designer Series Paper (DSP): 4 x 5 1/4 inches

Note: I Stamped Off with the Fresh Freesia Ink and the paint arch stamp in the Season of Chic stamp set to add a little color to the sentiment background. The sentiment is stamped in Evening Evergreen.

I hope this colorful card has inspired you and hopefully brightened your day.  There are other amazing inspirations for you to see as you hop along this blog hop. Please see the list below. You are at Theresa’s Treasures written by Theresa McEntee. Be sure not to miss anyone!

Thanks for visiting!

7. Add the Opal Rounds and Voila! you have a very elegant card!

Best Witches for a Happy Halloween

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. I used to love to sew costumes for my kids. Now I make Halloween cards to send out to everyone.

I had back surgery 4 days ago. For 3 weeks before the surgery I had been confined to my bed due to severe sciatic pain from a herniated disc. I did a lot of coloring during that time and ended up with a lot of witches and frogs from the Best Witches stamp set!

Here is one of the cards I came up with using my witch and frog.

Measurements

  • Parakeet Party cardstock (CS) card base: 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches with a score at 4 1/4 inches.
  • Parakeet Party cs: 1/2 x 5 inches for the stars.
  • Rustic Harvest 12 x 12 inch Designer Series Paper (DSP)-plaid design: 5 x 3 3/4 inches and 1/2 x 4 1/4 inches.
  • Basic Black cs: 1/4 x 3 inches for the sentiment.
  • Basic White cs: 3 1/2 x 4 inches for stamping the witch & frog and 4 x 5 1/4 inches for the inside of the card.

Supplies

  • Best Witches stamp set
  • Memento Ink
  • Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers in: Parakeet Party, Bermuda Bay, Rich Razzleberry, Fresh Freesia, SU800 (skin tone), Daffodil Delight, Poppy Parade, Pumpkin Pie and Basic Black.
  • Bermuda Bay Stampin’ Write Marker
  • Versamark Ink
  • White Emboss Powder
  • Heat Tool
  • Glitter Washi Tape
  • Witch Hat Builder Punch
  • Paper Snips
  • ruler
  • Blending Brushes
  • I also used the Scary Cute and Bottled Happiness stamp sets for the sentiments

Instructions

  1. Stamp the images onto the 3 1/2 x 4 inches Basic White cs. Color as desired with the Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers. Fussy cut the witch and frog.

Preparing the Paper

  1. Let’s start by preparing the paper with the Blending Brush and Parakeet Party Ink. Blend the ink onto the Rustic Harvest plaid design on the right hand side in an area where the witch will be. Make the circle large enough to surround the witch. Also blend some Parakeet Party Ink onto the 4 x 5 1/4 inch Basic White cs where you will be stamping the sentiment for the inside of the card. Blend some ink on the middle of the 1/2 x 4 1/4 inch plaid strip.
  2. Use the Bermuda Bay Stampin’ Write Marker and a ruler to draw the lines on the Rustic Harvest DSP plaid design. I did not draw the lines all the way through the area that was inked with the Parakeet Party Ink. Also draw some lines with the Bermuda Bay marker on the 1/2 x 4 1/4 inch strip of the plaid paper.

Using the Glitter Washi

  1. Use the Parakeet Party Glitter Washi to cover 2-3 inches of the end of the 1/2 x 5 inch Parakeet Party cs.
  2. Use the Basic Black Glitter Washi to make a box on the front of the Parakeet Party cs card base. The tape is placed 1/4 inch in from the edge.
  3. Use the Witch Builder Punch to cut out the stars.
  4. Complete the inside of the card by adhering the plaid strip to the left side of the 4 x 5 1/4 inch Basic White cs and adding a strip of the Parakeet Party Glitter Washi. (see photo of inside of card above).

Finishing Up

  1. Use the Versamark Ink to stamp the sentiment onto the 1/4 x 3 inch Basic Black cs. Sprinkle the White Emboss Powder on top and then shake off the excess. Use the Heat Tool to set the Emboss Powder.
  2. Adhere the 3 3/4 x 5 inch Rustic Harvest plaid onto the card front. The Basic Black Glitter Washi should show around the edges.
  3. Adhere the sentiment.
  4. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the witch and the frog.
  5. Add the stars.
  6. Stamp the inside sentiment in Memento Ink.
  7. Adhere the plaid strip with the Parakeet Party Glitter Washi.
  8. Adhere the inside card piece to the inside of the Parakeet Party cs card base.

Voila! You have a fun Halloween card!

Try other colors.

Try other designs and have fun!

I hope you have a safe and fun Halloween!

Let’s Set Sail for the Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop – July 2022- Scene and Color Inspiration

Hello everyone!  I’m so glad that you’re visiting today and hope you are having a wonderful day!  Today I am hopping with the Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop again this month! We are sharing inspiration from this lovely summer Scene & Color Challenge. There are several of us hopping today. You will find the list to follow along at the end of my blog post.

I was inspired mostly by the colors and used all of them! I really liked the idea of the sailboat too.

Creating the Card Yourself

Start by putting the Rays of Light stamp in the Stamparatus. Using a Sponge Dauber, apply the ink starting with Daffodil Delight Ink around the center of the rays. Next apply Mango Melody Ink in a circle around the Daffodil Delight Ink. Follow with Poppy Parade Ink. Finish up by applying Blackberry Bliss Ink on the edges of the stamp. Huff on the stamp to moisten the ink and stamp onto a 3 3/4 x 5 inch Basic White card stock. Repeat this process on a second 3 3/4 x 5 inch Basic White CS. You will use the second stamped Rays of Light card piece for the inside of the card.

In Smoky Slate Ink, stamp some birds around the center of the rays of light. Use the Smoky Slate Ink to stamp the sentiment “Adventure Awaits” onto a 1 1/2 x 2 1/2 inch strip of Basic White card stock. Use the Stylish Shapes Dies to cut out the sentiment.

Stamp the sailboat in Blackberry Bliss Ink onto a scrap of Basic White card stock. Use the Sailboat Builder Punch. Stamp each sail in Blackberry Bliss Ink and use the Sailboat Builder Punch. You will end up with 2 sails and a boat with a mast and flag.

Stamp the water in Pacific Point Ink onto a 2 x 6 inch Basic White card stock. Fussy cut.

Putting it all together

Adhere the Rays of Light card piece to a 4 x 5 1/4 inch Blackberry Bliss card stock. Then adhere the combo to the Pacific Point card stock card base (4 1/4 x 11 inches scored at 5 1/2 inches).

Trim a 1/2 inch strip off the right-hand edge of the second copy of the stamped Rays of Light. Adhere this to a 4 x 5 1/4 inch Basic White card stock. There will be a border around it. Adhere the card piece to the inside panel of the Pacific Point card stock card base.

Trim the stamped water to 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the water to the bottom of the card front.

Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the sentiment. Finish by adhering the boat followed by the sails-all on Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I hope this card has inspired you and hopefully brightened your day.  There are other amazing inspirations for you to see as you hop along this blog hop. Please see the list below. You are at Theresa’s Treasures written by Theresa McEntee-USA. Be sure not to miss anyone!
