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!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

What I learned from this Friday Fun Fold Pop Up Box Birthday Card

Hello my stamping friends! I hope all has been well with you this week. Today I have a Friday Fun Fold Pop Up Box Birthday Card for you. I learned this fold from Rachel Tessman who made it as a Paper Pumpkin alternative. You can see her card HERE. The first go around I made several mistakes. There will be tips for you so that you will be able to avoid the same mistakes I made.

The New Horizons Designer Series Paper (DSP) is so awesome, I am in love with it! This paper is super great for scenic watercolor backgrounds. I will be using the New Horizons DSP for today’s card along with the Sailing Home stamp set.

This is a photo of the second Friday Fun Fold Pop Up Box Birthday Card card I made. I will give you tips so that your first card comes out right.

Measurements

Friday Fun Fold Pop Up Box Birthday Card

Misty Moonlight Card Stock (CS) card base: 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches.

New Horizons Designer Series Paper (DSP): The scene will be portrait orientation. Cut the 6 x 6 inch scene at 4 1/4 inches first. Then cut the resulting strip to be 1 5/8 x 5 1/2 inches. Cut the scene to be 3 1/4 x 4 1/4 inches. You will need to use 2 sheets to get both scenes. One scene for the front and one for the back of the card.

Basic White CS: 2 1/2 x 1 inch (for sentiment) and 2 x 4 inch to stamp the larger sailboats on.

Night of Navy CS: 2 3/4 x 1 inch (for sentiment)

Ink: Night of Navy

Scoring the Card Base

Score at 1/2, 2 1/8, 2 5/8, 4 1/4, 5 7/8, 6 7/8 and 8 inches.

Preparing the Card Base

First Tip: Do not burnish the score lines until after you make the slot. Make the slot as thin as you can. The slot on the left is too wide. This made the finished card unstable. Use the Stampin’ Up! Trimmer to get a thin slot. Set the left edge of the card base at 4 5/16 inches and make a cut from 1 1/8 to 4 3/8 inches. Then turn the card base 180° and cut again. Use your paper snips to cut the extra piece off to make the slot.

Second Tip: Adhere the 1 5/8 x 5 1/2 inch strips of the New Horizons DSP close to the 4 1/4 inch score line, but do not cover the score line. The card should be easy to fold.

Stamping

Stamp the large sailboat twice in Night of Navy Ink onto a scrap of Basic White CS. Use a scrap of the News Horizons to stamp the small sailboat twice. You may fussy cut the sailboats or use the Smooth Sailing Dies.

Stamp the desired sentiment onto the 1 x 2 1/2 inch Basic White CS with Night of Navy Ink. I used the “Happy Birthday” from the Celebrating You stamp set.

Assembling the Fun Fold

One difference between my card and Rachel’s is that I wanted an image on both the front and the back of the card. That way there is something to look at forward and backward. Adhere the top of the two sailboat scenes together. Apply a Tear-n-Tape strip to the bottom of the back one.

Insert the sailboat scene through the slot in the card base. Align the bottom of the sailboat scene with the 1/2 inch score line. Take the protective layer off of the Tear-n-Tape on the scene. Fold the base at the 1/2 inch score line so that it sticks to the sail boat scene. Apply a strip of the Tear-n-Tape to the Misty Moonlight bottom.

Peel the protective layer off of the Tear-n-Tape. Adhere the two sailboat scene pieces together. Press down. Apply more Tear-n-Tape over the bottom of the sail boat scene. Remove the protective covering.

Fold the card base at the 4 1/4 inch score line to adhere the sides together.

Here is how the Pop Up Box looks from the side and all the way folded down. Cool right?!

Decorating the Pop Up Box

Tip: The first go around I put the small sailboat on the left and the sentiment on the right. The second time I was able to add the larger sailboat if I put the small sailboat to the right. Note: I forgot to stamp the birds on the sail boat scene for the first card. I really like the scene much better with the birds added.

On the backside, I placed the small sailboat on the left and the larger sailboat on the right as shown.

Be sure to adhere the sail boats and sentiment to the small strip under the DSP piece so that they pop up!

Finished Product

Here are the forward and backward views of the first card.

Here are the forward and backward views of the second card.

Voila! I hope you are successful with this. I really felt a sense of accomplishment after figuring this Fun Fold Pop Up Box Birthday card out.

Stampin’ Up!® Angels of Peace Christmas Card

Today’s card is the Stampin’ Up!® Angels of Peace Christmas Card for Day 3 of the “12 Days of Christmas Card Making Challenge”!

Peace on Earth! I would really like to see more of that. As I said above, I am on Day 3 of the “12 Days of Christmas Card Making Challenge” with my stamping buddy Christy. I will be blogging a new holiday card each day until December 10, 2021. I plan to showcase a different stamp set with each card. This will allow you plenty of time to see the great products that are available in the 2021 Stampin’ Up! July to December Catalog and order it in time to make your own Christmas cards! You can order HERE when you have your list ready!

Disclaimer: This is a somewhat advanced card as there are several steps before you can put the card together. I used the Silver Emboss Powder, the Blending Brushes, Watercolor Pencils, the Wink of Stella, and the Metallic Mesh Ribbon in creating this fabulous card! I went through many different versions of this card before deciding on the final one.

This card will be submitted to The Paper Players PP569 Sketch Challenge.

Here is what you need to emboss: Silver Emboss Powder-Metallics, Versamark and the Heat Tool.

Measurements

  • Basic White Card Stock (CS) card base: 4 1/4 x 11 inches with a score line at 5 1/2 inches.
  • Basic White CS: 3 x 5 inches and a 3/8 x 3 7/8 inch strip.
  • Peaceful Place Designer Series Paper (DSP): one 1 7/8 x 12 inch piece of the trees and night sky design. First cut a 5 1/8 inch piece with the tree on it. Then cut the remaining DSP into a 5 inch piece. Cut that piece at 2 1/2 inches to make two small rectangles. Trim 1/8 inch off the length on each piece. You will also need a 1/2 x 4 1/2 inch piece of the night sky.
  • Disregard the white and silver design as I ended up not using it in the final version.
  • Silver Foil: 4 x 5 1/4 inches.

Stamping

Start out by making the sentiment. Use the Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker to ink up the “Peace on Earth” only. Stamp onto the 3/8 x 3 7/8 inch Basic White CS. Set aside.

Blending with the Blending Brushes

Use medium pressure as you put the Blending Brush to the Pacific Point Ink Pad. Move in small circles until you have some ink on the Blending Brush. Practice on a scrap piece of paper, moving the Blending Brush in circles. Try different amounts of pressure. Learn which pressure is needed to lightly apply the color to the paper. Blend the Pacific Point Ink onto the top and right side of one of the night sky pieces. Next, blend the ink onto the bottom and right side of the other night sky piece.

Apply the Pacific Point Ink to the top and left side of the tree piece. Blend ink onto the ends of the 1/2 x 3 7/8 inch night sky piece.

Here is how the Peaceful Place DSP pieces will fit together when they are adhered to the Silver Foil. The strip will be used on the inside of the card.

More Stamping

Create the inside of the card by stamping in Memento ink the sentiment “Blessings to you and yours this season and in the coming year” onto the inside of the 4 1/4 x 11 inch Basic White CS card base. Stamp the snowflakes in Pacific Point ink. Adhere the 3/8 x 3 7/8 inch night sky piece to the bottom of the inside panel.

Heat Embossing the Angel

Steps for Heat Embossing:

  1. Apply an Anti-Static powder to the 3 x 5 inch Basic White CS.
  2. Use Versamark to stamp the angel onto the CS.
  3. Sprinkle the Silver Emboss Powder over the Versamark until it sticks to it evenly.
  4. Tap the paper to remove the Emboss Powder that is not stuck to the Versamark TIP: If you see some Silver Emboss Powder stuck in a place where it should not be, you can use the tip of a fine tip paint brush to remove the powder before heating.
  5. Heat the Heat Tool for about 10 seconds, then wave the heat over the Silver Emboss Powder until it is all melted. Let it cool.

Coloring the Angel

To create the angel the same way I did, you will need the Pacific Point Watercolor Pencil. First apply an even but light layer on the dress. Then darken certain areas to make shadows. I am not great at the shadows. Just do what seems right for you. The hair is a light layer of the Daffodil Delight Watercolor Pencil. The face and hand are done in a very light layer of Calypso Coral. I did color the wings and the dove, but later wished I had left it alone. To finish the angel, use the Wink of Stella on the dress and wings.

Assembling the Card

Begin by adhering the Peaceful Place DSP pieces to the 4 x 5 1/4 inch Silver Foil as shown. Next tie a bow with the 1 1/2 inch metallic Mesh Ribbon leaving long tails. Use glue dots to adhere to the card front. Then use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the angel. Wrap the tails of the bow around her. Finish by adhering the sentiment.

Complete the card by adhering the Silver Foil panel to the front of the Basic White CS card base. Take care to know which panel has the inside sentiment on it so you adhere the Silver Foil to the correct side.

Add some Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the sky. Voila! You have made a beautiful, shining angel Christmas card.

Thanks for joining me for Day 3 of the “12 Days of Christmas Card Making Challenge”. I have a great 3D card for tomorrow!

Happy crafting!

Theresa

Stampin’ Up! Eden’s Garden Fun Fold Friday Birthday Card

Hello and Happy Friday! I am so happy to be so close to the weekend! Today I am sharing my Stampin’ Up! Eden’s Garden Fun Fold Friday Birthday Card! Yes, Fun Fold Friday is back!

Disclaimer: Today’s card is a little challenging. I am using few techniques. Let me know if you have any comments or questions about the instructions.

Today I have a very special card to share. My neighbor, who I have know for about 23 years, is turning 98! I am so excited for her! I am giving her this card to help her celebrate! Happy Birthday Jane!

The Card Base

Using the Stampin’ Up! Paper Trimmer I created the card base in Soft Succulent Card Stock (CS) with the measurements as shown above. All of the lines are scored except the two vertical lines at 1 1/4 inches and 4 1/4 inches which run from 1 inch to 5 1/4 inches in length. You will need to cut the paper along those lines. Fold as shown above.

Measurements

The first layer is Evening Evergreen CS. You will need two 1 x 3 inch pieces, a 3 x 2 3/4 inch piece and a
5 1/4 x 3/4 inch piece. The patterned paper is some of the Ever Eden Cotton Paper that I embossed with Gold Emboss Powder. You can see how to make your own patterned paper HERE. Each measurement is 1/8 inch smaller than the Evening Evergreen CS. You will need two 7/8 x 2 7/8 inch pieces, a 2 7/8 x 2 5/8 inch piece and a 5 1/8 x 5/8 inch piece. If 1/8 inches drives you nuts, you could decrease the Evening Evergreen CS measurements by 1/4 inch instead. The border would be a bit thicker.

The Gold Foil circle is from the Tasteful Labels Dies. The square is made using Partial Die Cutting with a die from the Scalloped Contours Dies. The small flower sprigs are in the Eden Dies. The center photo shows the “Happy Birthday” sentiment from the Peaceful Moments stamp set die cut with the Layered Circle Dies. The leaves and berries image is from the Eden’s Garden stamp set. This is fussy cut.

Putting the Card Base Together

The first step is to adhere the Gold Embossed Ever Eden Cotton Paper to the Evening Evergreen CS. I used a thin layer of the Multipurpose Liquid Glue spread with my finger on the back of the Embossed Cotton Paper. Then adhere these card pieces to the corresponding spot on the card base.

Adhere the 2 7/8 x 2 5/8 inch Gold Embossed Ever Eden Cotton Paper to the 3 x 2 3/4 inch Evening Evergreen CS. Follow by using Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the Gold Foil scalloped piece. Adhere this card piece to the center of the card base.

Adding The Decor

Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the stamped leaves and berries card piece to the center of the Gold Foil scalloped square. Adhere the “Happy Birthday” sentiment to the Gold Foil circle. Then use Stampin’ Dimensionals on the bottom half to adhere it to the front of the card base. Note: I put the Stampin’ Dimensionals only in the center of the stamped leaves and berries piece so that I can insert the flower sprigs around the edges.

Insert several of the Evening Evergreen CS flower sprigs around the sentiment and around the leaves and berries image. Add the Gold Foil flower sprigs.

Add a 5 1/4 x 3 inch Very Vanilla CS to the inside of the card. I stamped a few leaves at the edge in Evening Evergreen ink.

Bling!

Now for some Bling! The Garden Gems are really interesting. They appear to be Evening Evergreen with gold accents, but when photographed turn blue and red in places! Very cool!

Voila! You have a very special birthday card that is a little challenging but worth the effort!

It was so nice to have you drop by today. I hope you try this card out. This particular fun fold lends itself to many great cards!

Stampin’ Up!® Gorgeous Leaves Paper Lattice Thanksgiving Card

Stampin’ Up! Gorgeous Leaves Paper Lattice Thanksgiving Card. I have a very colorful Thanksgiving Card made using the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set and Intricate Leaves Dies.

I also found a fun trick with the Paper Lattice! This card was inspired by one made by Mary Knabe. Click on the photo below to get to her blog.

Here is Mary Knabe’s card that inspired me

I also got some inspiration from the current Theme Challenge from The Paper Players.

Measurements

Soft Suede Card Stock (CS) card base: 11 x 4 1/4 inches with a score line at 4 1/4 inches.

Very Vanilla CS: 5 1/4 x 4 inches and 5 1/4 x 3 1/2 inches.

Pumpkin Pie, Pear Pizzazz and Crushed Curry CS: 5 1/2 x 3 /8 inches
(one of each except the Pumpkin Pie CS cut two).

Paper Lattice: one.

Label Parts

Very Vanilla CS label from the Tasteful Labels Dies.

Pumpkin Pie, Pear Pizzazz and Crushed Curry CS leaves from the Intricate Leaves Dies.

Very Vanilla CS Stitched Rectangle from the Stitched Rectangle Dies (the sentiment is from the Banner Year stamp set and is in Early Espresso ink).

Early Espresso Faux Suede Trim: approx. 7 inches to make one bow.

Stamping

Start by stamping the 5 1/4 x 4 inch Very Vanilla CS which is the inside of the card. Stampin’ Up! inks for this card are: Pumpkin Pie, Pear Pizzazz and Crushed Curry. Decorate the inside by stamping a variety of leaf shapes from the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set in a variety of color.

Weaving

Now for the fun trick! Gently weave the color CS strips into the Paper Lattice. Flip the Paper Lattice over. I recommend using the Foam Adhesive Sheets cut into 1/4 inch strips to add dimension and hold the paper strips in place on the back of the Paper Lattice.

Assembling the card

Adhere the Paper Lattice to the 5 1/4 x 3 1/2 inch Very Vanilla CS. Follow by adhering the card piece to the front of the Soft Suede CS card Base.

Complete the inside of the card by adhering the stamped 5 1/4 x 4 inch Very Vanilla CS to the inside of the Soft Suede CS card base.

Assembling the Label

Arrange the Intricate Leaves as desired and adhere them to the Very Vanilla Tasteful Label. Use Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the “Happy Thanksgiving” sentiment over the leaves.

Adhere the label to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Adhere the Early Espresso Faux Suede bow just under the sentiment with a Mini Glue Dot.

Add some Champagne Rhinestone Jewels and Voila! you have a fun and colorful Thanksgiving card!

Bruno and Kylie Bertucci’s Top 10 International Blog Highlight Winners Hop August 2021- Gorgeous Leaves Thank You

I am so honored and excited to be participating in today’s Top 10 Winners Hop for Bruno and Kylie Bertucci’s International Blog Highlights! I thank everyone who voted for my card in that hop. I combined a lot of elements to make this Gorgeous Leaves Thank You card. Saying “Thank you” is so important! You can never have enough Thank You cards. I am so excited to see everyone else’s projects too!

I primarily used the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set and Intricate Leaves Dies. Additional stamp sets used for this card included: Very Versailles (the background script) and Pansy Patch (Thank You sentiment). The label for the sentiment is from the Harvest Dies.

I took full advantage on the many fall colors Stampin’ Up!® has. The colors I used for this card are: Bumblebee, Soft Suede, Early Espresso, Cinnamon Cider, Cajun Craze, Pumpkin Pie and Old Olive.

Although they are difficult to see in this photo, the Genial Gems add a little sparkle to the Gorgeous Leaves Thank You card.
