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.

Using the Versamark Ink stamp the images onto the Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper.
Stamp two images, then cover them with the White Emboss Powder. Shake off the excess.
Use the Heat Tool to set.
Stamp two more images and repeat.
That way you can see where you stamped to avoid stamping on top of another image.

Prepare several layers of paper towels to work on.
Squeeze each of the colored ink pads to get ink on the inside of the lid. Open & set up in a line above the paper towels.
Use the Stampin’ Spritzer to spray water on the embossed Watercolor Paper. The water beads up on the paper.
Use the Water Painter to pick up ink from the lid.
Brush the ink onto the moist Watercolor Paper one color at a time.
TIP: In between colors, squeeze water from the Water Brush onto a paper towel until it runs clear.
Dry overnight. Or use the Heat Tool to speed up the drying process.
Step 3- Assembling the Card
Use the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine and the Seaside Bay Dies to cut one large & one small algae from the center of the Shaded Spruce Textured Shimmer Paper. C
Cut 2 small & one large seashell from the Crumb Cake cs.
Adhere the Basic White cs to the inside of the Balmy Blue cs card base.
Adhere the Shaded Spruce Textured Shimmer Paper to the card front.
Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the embossed & watercolored card piece to the card front.

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!
The New Horizons Designer Series Paper (DSP) available in the Stampin’ Up! 2022 Mini Catalog is just gorgeous on its own. Combine that with the On the Horizon stamp set and you can create some awesome scenes with the #SimpleStamping Technique. You end up with wonderfully beautiful scenes with very minimal work on your part!
The following cards were part of my last Zoom Card Making Class. Here is an example of a really quick and simple scene using Evening Evergreen and Blackberry Bliss Inks.
Measurements for above card
Night of Navy Card Stock (CS) card base: 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches with a score line at 4 1/4 inches.
New Horizons DSP: 4 x 5 1/4 inches. Cut a 1/2 x 5 1/4 inch strip for the inside.
Basic White CS: 4 x 5 1/4 inches (inside of card)
Use the Evening Evergreen Ink to stamp the sentiment “Relax & Enjoy Your Day” in the lower left corner.
Stamp the trio of trees three times across the horizon.
Finish by stamping the birds a few times in Blackberry Bliss Ink.
Voila! That’s it!
If you like to decorate the inside you can do some simple stamping. Add the 1/2 x 5 1/4 inch New Horizons DSP for something extra special. The sentiment is from the Peaceful Moments stamp set.
Here are a few more samples of the way I used the #SimpleStamping Technique to easily and quickly create a series of gorgeous cards! And some of the cards have a very masculine feel for your special guy.
I stamped on the New Horizons DSP, then cut it into 3 pieces to give this card a different look.
Thank you so much for visiting today. I hope you have a wonderful day and have some time to do some crafting! Join me for my next Zoom Card Making Class on April 9, 2022. For more information click HERE.
Here is the card I came up with using the Turtle Friends stamp set by Stampin’ Up! This is such a cute set. My Mom loved turtles. She collected little turtle figurines. When she passed away, each of her 16 grandchildren were allowed to select one of the turtle figurines to take with them. This card is a tribute to her.
The paper on the lower third of the card is from the Whale of a Time Designer Series Paper. The turtle is stamped in Shaded Spruce ink onto Just Jade Card Stock (CS). The bird is stamped in Pacific Point ink onto Balmy Blue CS. The card base is Balmy Blue CS and is embossed with the new Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder. The rhinestones are from the Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels.
Here is a peek at the inside. So adorable!
For more ideas from this sketch challenge visit The Paper Players to see how other crafters used the sketch for their cards.
The Stampin’ Up! colors are: Crumb Cake, Early Espresso and Very Vanilla for the Card Stock (CS). The ink is Memento in Rich Cocoa (not a Stampin’ Up! product). The stitched outline on the Early Espresso CS is made with the Stitched With Whimsy Dies. The Crumb Cake CS card base was embossed with the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder.
I also like to do some stamping on the inside of the card. I just continued the rope and anchor.
I used the Stampin’ Up! Smooth Sailing dies to easily cut out the images of the lighthouse and anchor. The twine is from the Baker’s Twine Essentials Pack. The sentiment is from the retired Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set.

Viola! That is all it takes!

This wonderful summer Birthday card was inspired by a swap I received. A swap is a card that you make multiple copies of and take to a stamping event with you. There you will meet others who have made swap and you swap cards with them. Unfortunately I have lost the name of who made the swap I was inspired by.
Measurements: Very Vanilla Card Stock (CS): 4 1/4 x 11 inch card base with a score line at 5 1/2 inches, two 4 x 5 1/4 inch, 2 x 4 1/2 inches and 1 x 3 3/4 inches.
I used Memento ink for the stamping and I colored with Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers. I used the light and dark Blend of each of the following colors: Pool Party, Purple Posy, Petal Pink, Crumb Cake and Soft Suede.
Using the Memento ink, stamp the sea horse onto the 2 x 4 1/2 inch Very Vanilla CS and the “Happy Birthday” sentiment onto the 1 x 3 3/4 inch strip of Very Vanilla CS.
On one of the 4 x 5 1/4 inch Very Vanilla CS pieces I stamped a row of the conch shell, then added the sand dollars.
Next I stamped the snail shell. I filled in the spaces with the clam shell. I added another conch shell on the very bottom left and top right. This is a slightly organized random pattern in my book! Ha, ha! 🙂
Don’t do this step because it turned out to be a mistake later on but i wanted to share this with you so you won’t make the same mistake. On the inside of the card base I stamped another sea horse and two sand dollars. I recommend that you stamp the sea horse and sand dollars onto the other 4 x 5 1/4 inch Very Vanilla CS piece.
Again do not do this step. Once I used the Stampin’ Blends to color the sea horse and sand dollars, I realized that the markers bled through to the back. Whoa! 😲 The way I fixed it is that I cut the inside panel to be 4 x 5 1/4 inches and made another 4 1/4 x 11 inch Very Vanilla CS card base.
On with the fun. Color the sea horse with the light and dark Soft Suede Blends.
For each of the shells, I decided to add a shadow to the lower right hand side. I did this by first coloring in the shell with the Light Crumb Cake Blend. I then went over the lower right with the Dark Crumb Cake Blend. Lastly I went over the area I wanted shadowed again with the Light Crumb Cake Blend to blend the light and dark together.
I repeated the process with all the shells. The conch shells are colored in Petal Pink. The snail shell is colored in Pool Party and the clam shell in Purple Posy.
Fussy cut the sea horse that is stamped on the 2 x 4 1/2 inch Very Vanilla CS. Place cut up Stampin’ Dimensionals and Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals on the tail and head, leaving the body without Dimensionals.
Adhere the body of the sea horse to the left side of the Happy Birthday sentiment. Cut a banner end on the right end of the sentiment strip.
Adhere the 4 x 5 1/4 inch Very Vanilla CS stamped with the sea horse to the inside of the 4 1/4 x 11 inch Very Vanilla CS card base. Use the Bone Folder on the 5 1/2 inch score line to make a crisp fold.
Adhere the other 4 1/4 x 5 inch Very Vanilla CS stamped with the shells to the card front. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back of the sentiment strip and adhere in place.
Now for some Bling! The Wink of Stella Glitter Brush is perfect for adding a little sparkle to the sea horse.
Viola! You have a fun end of summer Birthday card to send off to someone special. I just love the sparkle!
Thank you for visiting theresas-treasures.com today. I hope you enjoyed this end of summer card. I am looking forward to some cooler temperatures, but here in Arizona it may be quite awhile. Good thing I can craft inside!
