Sending Sunshine Stampin’ Up!®

The card for today will be a #simplestamping card because I will use only stamps, ink and paper (and a punch). There is a set of stamps made by Stampin’ Up! to help you easily create your own scenes. Sending Sunshine is the one I will use today. The other similar stamp sets are My Meadow and Snow Front. All of these sets are in the 2020-21 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog.

This really is a very simple card to create. You will be surprised.

Measurements: Whisper White Card Stock (CS): 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches with a score line at 4 1/4 inches (card base), 2 3/4 x 3 3/4 inches and 2 1/4 x 3 1/2 inches; Balmy Blue CS: 4 x 5 1/4 inches.

Use the Memento Black Ink to stamp the sentiment “Hoping Your Day is Perfect” onto the 2 1/4 x 3 1/2 inch Whisper White CS. Take care to position the stamped sentiment so that you can punch it out with the 2 inch Circle Punch.

Lay the layers of the card on the card front and position the sentiment. Move it slightly downward and trace the edge. This will help make sure that the scene is positioned properly.

Place the 2 3/4 x 3 2/4 inch Whisper White CS on the Stampin’ Pierce Mat. When using the Photopolymer stamps (the see-through ones) you need a slight cushion. You could also use your catalog. I cover my Pierce Mat with white scrap paper to avoid getting ink on it. I put the black paper down so you could see the card piece better. Stamp the smaller water onto the Whisper White CS. I placed mine slightly to the right so that it would not be covered by the sentiment later.

Apply the Daffodil Delight ink to the bottom portion of the setting sun stamp. Apply the Calypso Coral ink only to the upper portion by placing the stamp on the edge of the ink pad.

Carefully line up the setting sun and the horizon of the water. Mine is a little too high, but I opted to just let it be. (It’s the little imperfections that make a handmade card special!)

Use the Granny Apple Green ink to stamp the larger branch of leaves. Add some of the smaller branches to make the trees more full.

I added some faint clouds with the Balmy Blue ink by first stamping onto my scrap paper, then stamping onto the card piece. This is called Stamping Off.

To help the sentiment stand out a little, I used a Sponge Dauber with Balmy Blue ink to sponge the edge.

Adhere the 4 x 5 1/4 inch Balmy Blue CS to the Whisper White CS card base, then adhere your stamped card piece. I prefer to use the Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue because when I first put the card piece down, I can wiggle it a little to make sure it is straight.

Add Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the sentiment and put it in place on the card front being sure to cover the pencil marks.

The card is finished. However, if you would like to add a little Bling! you could use the Wink of Stella Glitter Brush on the water to make it sparkle.

Viola! See how quick and simple that was! Experiment with different colors and combinations of the stamps from the Sending Sunshine stamp set, or combine it with the My Meadow or Snow Front. There are endless possibilities to the scenes you can create!

Friday Fun-fold: Playful Pampered Pets sending loving thoughts

This funtastic Pampered Pets stamp set is perfect for the dog or cat lover! This card is for my daughter who has both a dog and three cats.

This is a very common and easy fun-fold with a slight variation to make it more interesting. I turned the Real Red Card Stock (CS) that goes behind the stamped puppy card piece to make it diamond-shaped.

Measurements: Real Red CS card base is 4 1/4 x 11 inches with score lines at 2 3/4 and 5 1/2 inches; Real Red CS: 2 3/4 x 2 3/4 inches; Whisper White CS: 2 3/4 x 2 3/4 inches and 4 x 5 1/4 inches; Playful Pets Designer Series Paper (DSP): 2 1/2 x 4 inches.

With Memento Black ink stamp the puppy onto the 2 3/4 x 2 3/4 inch Whisper White CS. Tip: We will be coloring with the Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers and the Memento ink will not bleed.

Stamp the sentiment “I hope your day is a real treat” in Memento ink onto the lower right hand corner of the 4 x 5 1/4 inch Whisper White CS. Add the little pet food bowl and then the hearts.

The Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Marker colors are: Light Basic Black and Light and Dark: Smoky Slate, Flirty Flamingo and Real Red. I also used the Real Red Stampin’ Write marker that is part of the Regals Assortment for the collar and dog’s mouth.

First color with the Stampin’ Blends Light Basic Black to accentuate the edges and shadows. Add the Dark Smoky Slate and blend it into the Light Basic Black.

Blend in the Light Smoky Slate. Tip: When blending the light color into the darker colors, use a small circular motion. I added a little Light Flirty Flamingo to the belly, ear and nose.

Color the mouth and collar with the Stampin’ Write Real Red Marker. The tip is finer so it is easier to put the ink just where you want it. Add a little Basic Black ink to the nose.

Color in the hearts with the Light Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blend and add a slight shadow on the right hand side of each heart with the Dark Flirty Flamingo. The pet food bowl is colored with the Light Real Red Stampin’ Blend on one half, and the Dark Real Red on the other half.

Take the Real Red CS card base and use your Bone Folder to make a Z-fold as shown.

Adhere the 2 3/4 x 2 3/4 inch Playful Pets DSP to the front panel of the Z-fold. Adhere the sentiment card piece to the inside.

Apply adhesive to half of the 2 3/4 x 2 3/4 inch Real Red “diamond-shape” and apply to the front panel over the Playful Pets DSP. Be mindful of the placement so that the sentiment shows completely when the card is closed.

Apply adhesive to the colored puppy card piece and adhere it to the Real Red diamond-shaped card piece. Be mindful of the lower right corner so that it does not cover the sentiment.

Viola! This card is a playful fun-fold that was pretty quick to make! I hope my daughter gets hers in the mail before this blog posts!

Stamping on Designer Series Paper with Forever Fern Wishing You Happiness

These beautiful colorful cards are so easy to make! The leaves come from the Forever Fern stamp set and the sentiments are from So Sentimental. Both of these sets are so versatile. The So Sentimental has several great sentiments in addition to those in the photo, including “hello baby”, “healing hugs”, “for you”, and “this calls for confetti”.

Here is the card I will demonstrate today. The colors are Magenta Madness, Rich Razzleberry, Blackberry Bliss and Balmy Blue.

Measurements: Rich Razzleberry Card Stock (CS) card base: 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches with a score line at 4 1/4 inches: Whisper White CS: 4 x 5 1/4 inches and 2 1/2 x 3 inches; Artistry Blooms Designer Series Paper (DSP): 4 x 5 1/4 inches; and Balmy Blue CS: 2 5/8 x 3 1/8 inches.

Stamp the sentiment “Wishing you much happiness today and always” from the So Sentimental stamp set in Blackberry Bliss ink onto the 2 1/2 x 3 inch Whisper White CS. Then use the Blackberry Bliss ink and the largest bunch of leaves from the Forever Fern stamp set and stamp the leaves to frame the sentiment. Be sure to use a scrap paper underneath so you don’t stamp on your table! Our nickname for Blackberry Bliss is Blackberry Mess!

Next use the Balmy Blue ink to stamp a smaller bunch of flowers on the upper left corner, and the Magenta Madness ink to stamp the berry design on the lower right corner of the sentiment. This creates a little frame around the sentiment.

Use the Blackberry Bliss ink and the larger bunch of leaves to stamp onto the Artistry Blooms DSP. I tried to visualize where the sentiment will be and use that as a focal point for the end of the stems.

Next use the Magenta Madness ink to stamp the berry design, and the Balmy Blue ink to stamp the smaller bunch of leaves. I continued to use the focal point for the ends of the stems. On some I turned the stamp around and stamped with the stem off the edge of the paper to fill in the blank spots.

I wanted to make the inside a little more fancy. I started on the top of the 4 x 5 1/4 inch Whisper White CS with the Blackberry Bliss ink and the large bunch of leaves, and worked down the right side. I used the Balmy Blue ink with the small bunch of leaves and then the Magenta Madness with the berry design on the bottom.

Adhere the stamped Whisper White CS panel to the inside of the 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 inch Rich Razzleberry CS card base. Use you Bone Folder to fold the card base at the 4 1/4 inch score line so you get a nice crisp fold.

Adhere the stamped sentiment card piece to the 2 5/8 x 3 1/8 inch Balmy Blue CS. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals or the new Foam Adhesive Sheets on the back. Tip: If you have arthritis in you fingers, I have found that cutting the Adhesive Sheets into 1/4 inch strips is much easier to use than the little hexagonal Stampin’ Dimensionals. I just have a hard time peeling of the backs of those hexagons!

Adhere the stamped DSP to the front of the Rich Razzleberry card base, then add the sentiment card piece to the middle of the front.

And now for some Bling! I am so in love with the Artistry Blooms Self Adhesive Sequins Pack because there are 4 colors with 2 different sizes! They go with just about everything! To easily transfer the sequin I use the Take Your Pick tool. I slide the pointed end under the adhesive on the back of the sequin and than just set it down where I want it, apply a little pressure, and it sticks in place.

Viola! You have stamped on Designer Series Paper to make a wonderful, colorful card to wish some happiness to someone!

I really appreciate that you stopped by today. I hope you enjoyed the card and will give it a try. Experiment with different papers and stamps to see what you like. There are so many possiblities!

Dove of Hope to wish Peace, Joy, and Love

Recent events can sometimes make it hard to have hope for a good future. Nonetheless I am hopeful that Peace, Joy, and Love as stated on today’s card will prevail. This is a wonderful message to send out for the holidays. This card could also be sent for a Confirmation or First Communion, or just encouragement during these hard times.

Stampin’ Up!’s Dove of Hope stamp set also comes with Detailed Dove Dies in a Bundle saving you 10%. I made this card with the Beginner Stamper in mind, so I did not use the dies.

Measurements: Whisper White Card Stock (CS): 4 1/4 x 1 inches with a score line at 5 1/2 inches (this is the card base), 4 x 5 1/4 inches, 2 3/4 x 3 1/2 inches and a 1/2 x 4 1/8 inch strip; Night of Navy CS: 4 1/8 x 5 3/8 inches; Artistry Blooms Designer Series Paper (DSP).

Use Memento ink to stamp the dove in the upper left hand corner of the 2 3/4 x 3 1/2 inch Whisper White CS.

Stamp the berry branch under the dove with the Memento ink.

Use the Night of Navy ink to stamp the sentiment “Peace Joy Love” onto the 1/2 x 4 1/8 inch Whisper White CS strip. Tip: When stamping the sentiment, line up the capital letters to get the sentiment on straight.

Use Balmy Blue and Highland Heather ink to stamp a flurry of snowflakes on the 4 x 5 1/4 inch Whisper White CS. This will be the inside of the card.

Adhere the Whisper White CS with the flurry of snowflakes to the inside of the 4 1/4 x 11 inch Whisper White CS card base.

Adhere the 4 x 5 1/4 inch Artistry Blooms DSP to the 4 1/8 x 5 3/8 inch Night of Navy CS, then adhere the piece to the front of the Whisper White CS card Base.

To color the berry branch and dove I used the Stampin’ Write Markers in Real Red, Shaded Spruce and Smoky Slate.

Adhere the colored dove card piece and the sentiment strip to the card front.

And now for the Bling! I just love adding sparkle to a card! The Artistry Blooms Sequins have many different colors to add a little sparkle to just about any card!

I added a little bit of the sequins here and there until I felt satisfied with the overall look. Tip: Transferring the sequins is a breeze with the Take Your Pick tool.

Viola! You now have another fabulous Christmas or Holiday card ready to send out!

Thanks so much for visiting today. I really appreciate you! Please let me hear your thoughts by commenting. Thanks again!

Have a relaxing and creative day!

Inspiring Iris for Appreciating Somebody Who Makes Everybody Feel Like Somebody #simplestamping

I believe you can always add some sunshine to your day by thanking somebody. Gratitude has a way of not only making the recipient feel good, but also the well-wisher. Today’s card is a super simple and beautiful card to send out a word of thanks.

The Inspiring Iris is a Two Step Stamp. I love the beautiful script font the sentiments are written in. This card is a Simple Stamping card because it uses primarily ink, stamps and paper.

Measurements: Whisper White Card Stock (CS): 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 inch card base with a score line at 4 1/4 inches, two 4 x 5 1/4 inches and 2 1/4 x 3 1/2 inches; Gorgeous Grape CS: 2 3/4 x 4 1/2 inches; and 6 x 6 inch Designer Series Paper Assortments-Brights-Gorgeous Grape: 2 x 4 inches.

Use Memento Black ink to stamp the outline of the irises onto the 2 1/4 x 3 1/2 inch Whisper White CS. Be sure to use the Stampin’ Pierce Mat or a catalog. Stamp the leaves in Granny Apple Green ink. Do not worry that the leaves do not exactly line up. Being offset a little is part of the design. i think this looked best when I tried lining up the top of the stems.

Stamp the body of the irises in Gorgeous Grape ink.

Stamp the sentiment “Thanks” in Gorgeous Grape ink onto the card piece with the irises. Then stamp the sentiment “You are somebody who makes everybody feel like somebody” in Gorgeous Grape ink onto one of the 4 x 5 1/4 inch Whisper White CS.

To fancy up the inside of the card, stamp the little flowers in Gorgeous Grape ink. The two darker flowers are stamped at full strength and the lighter one is Stamped Off. The center of the flower is Stamped Off for the darker flowers, and at full strength for the lighter Stamped Off flower. The body of the leaves is stamped in Granny Apple Green without using an outline.

Adhere the 2 3/4 x 4 1/2 inch Gorgeous Grape CS to the left side of the second 4 x 5 1/4 inch Whisper White CS, keeping the distance from the edge of the Whisper White equal on 3 sides, about 1/4 inch. Adhere the 2 x 4 inch Gorgeous Grape Designer Series Paper to the right side, about 1/4 inch from the right edge.

Apply Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the irises. Alternatively, the iris piece can be adhered flat to the card front.

Fold the 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 inch Whisper White CS card base at the 4 1/4 inch score line and use the Bone Folder to get a crisp fold. Adhere the iris card piece to the front of the card, then adhere the whole piece to the front of the card base.

Adhere the card piece with the sentiment to the inside of the card base.

Viola! That is all there is to making this wonderful card! You can stop here or….

You can add a little Bling! The Pearl Basic Jewels are great for this card.

I used the Take Your Pick tool to transfer 3 Pearl Basic Jewels in decreasing size to the lower left corner of the Gorgeous Grape CS.

Viola! Same wonderful card now with a little Bling! Either way, this is a nice card to send to someone to thank them for being a great person!

Thank you so much for coming by today and learning how to put together this beautiful card. Please leave a comment below letting me know what you think.

Little Lambs Eat Ivy- Hippo Happiness

“Mairzy doats and dozy doats and liddle lamzy divey, a kiddle divey too, wouldn’t you?” I am really showing my age here. My Grandma used to sing that little ditty to us. For some reason, this little lamb reminded me of it. Have you any songs that your Grandma or Mom sang to you? It is fun to make a card as a reminder.

Measurements: Whisper White Card Stock (CS): 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inch card base with a score line at 4 1/4 inches, 5 1/4 x 4 inches and 4 x 2 inches; Gorgeous Grape CS: 5 3/8 x 4 1/8 inches.

Ink Colors: Memento, Gorgeous Grape, Calypso Coral, Balmy Blue, Flirty Flamingo, Daffodil Delight and Granny Apple Green.

On the 4 x 2 inch Whisper White CS, stamp the sentiment “fluttering by just to say hi!” in Gorgeous Grape ink on to the right side. Allow space around the sentiment to be able to use the Label Me Fancy Punch. Use Calypso Coral ink to stamp the outline of the butterfly on the left side.

The main images on this card require Two Step Stamping. (Hover over underlined words for definition). I also used the Stamping Off Technique for this butterfly. Ink up your stamp and stamp it lightly but evenly onto a scrap paper, then stamp it onto your card piece without adding any ink. This way you get a lighter shade of the same ink color.

I added the little face for the butterfly in Memento ink. Punch the sentiment out with the Label Me Fancy Punch.

Lay the sentiment and butterfly pieces onto the 5 1/4 x 4 inch Whisper White CS. Use the Memento ink and the dotted swirl stamp to stamp the path of the butterfly just over the sentiment.

Now for the fun part! I found it easier to line up the second stamp if I stamped the full strength part of the image first. For the second stamp of the Two Step Stamping I first Stamped Off onto a scrap paper, then lined up the scallops on the head and body, and stamped over the full strength image. The first lambs are in Balmy Blue ink.

I added one color at a time, always starting with the full strength part of the image. The next colors I used are Flirty Flamingo ink and Daffodil Delight ink.

After you have all the lambs in place, add the face with Memento ink. (Confession: I had to do this card 3 times in order to get it all looking good. The first card, I had it all good, then dropped the block with the inked stamp on top of it! After that, I had a hard time lining the two images up. I waited a day and tried again. If you can’t get it lined up, take a break and try again later.)

Use the tiny flower stamp to stamp flowers in the spaces with Gorgeous Grape ink.

I wanted the sentiment to stand out a little more. I used the Sponging Technique to add a little Gorgeous Grape to the edge.

I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the sentiment and the butterfly, then Multipurpose liquid glue to adhere the stamped card piece to the 5 3/8 x 4 1/8 inch Gorgeous Grape CS. The entire piece is then adhered to the front of the 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inch Whisper White CS card base.

And of course, now some Bling! I used the Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels and transferred them to the card with the Take Your Pick tool.

Viola! Plenty of colorful little lambs and a little fluttering butterfly to say “Hi!” and spread some joy!

I hope you found this card to be fun. I sure did! Thanks so much for stopping by and visiting my blog. Please leave a comment and let me know whether you like it or not.

Simple Stamping with Blossoms in Bloom for a Colorful Hello Card

Hello lovely crafty people. This lovely and colorful card is really very simple to make. There is some fussy cutting, but otherwise this card is made with just stamping.

The Blossoms in Bloom stamp set by Stampin’ Up! is in the 2020-2021 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog. This stamp set is so fun to create with! The sentiments in the set allow you to design a variety of cards ranging from Happy Birthday to Get Well, and Hello to Thank You. The Blossoms in Bloom would be a great stamp set for the beginning stamper.

So let’s get stamping!

Measurements: Pacific Point Card Stock (CS): 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches with a score line at 4 1/4 inches; Whisper White CS: two 5 1/4 x 4 inches and a scrap strip measuring a least 8 1/2 x 1 1/2 inches. Note: I also needed a 1/2 inch strip of Whisper White to fix a mistake.

First apply the sentiments “HELLO” and “I LIKE YOU A LOT” to a clear block. Stamp the sentiments in Night Of Navy ink at a diagonal onto one of the 5 1/4 x 4 inch Whisper White CS. Tip: Remember to use the Pierce Mat (or a Stampin’ Up Catalog) under the clear Photopolymer stamps.

For the large stamps, I find it easier to apply the ink evenly if I flip the stamp upside down on the table to apply the ink.

Stamp the bunch of blossoms in Pacific Point ink onto the lower right hand corner. Apply more ink and stamp in the upper left hand corner. These blossoms are just so beautiful!

There are two different medium sized five-petaled flowers. Apply them to a clear block. Stamp the flowers in Magenta Madness onto a scrap piece of Whisper White CS until you have 8 flowers. Fussy cut the flowers.

Stamp the center of the Pacific Point flowers in Early Espresso ink. Stamp the center of the Magenta Madness flowers in Bumble Bee ink. Adhere the Magenta Madness flowers to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stamp the tiny five-petaled flowers in Balmy Blue ink. I just stamped the tiny five-petaled flowers on randomly.

As I was happily stamping the tiny leaves in Granny Apple Green I dropped the block with the stamp onto my card! Ugh! Not to worry, there is almost always a way to fix a mistake.

I finished stamping the tiny leaves, then took a 1/2 inch strip of Whisper White CS and stamped the sentiments again. I cut the ends to be banner ends and applied the strip with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Mistake fixed! Whew!

Stamp the large blossoms in Pacific Point ink onto the other 5 1/4 x 4 inch Whisper White CS. Stamp onto the lower right hand corner. Add some of the Magenta Madness flowers with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Randomly stamp some tiny five-petaled flowers in Balmy Blue ink and some tiny leaves in Granny Apple Green ink. Apply the finished inside card piece to the inside of the 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inch Pacific Point CS card base. Be sure to use a Bone Folder after folding on the 4 1/4 inch score line to make the fold crisp.

Adhere the front card piece to the front of the Pacific Point CS card base.
