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.
This is the challenge photo. What does it inspire you to make?
The Ink & Inspiration Challenge is both an image and a color challenge. I was inspired by the image because the flowers in the Ranunculus Romance stamp set are very similar to the photo. The colors were also very pretty and inspirational.
I had really wanted to use the Split Card Textures Dies. I got into my zone and just started stamping. Before I knew it, this card was created!
The Stampin’ Write Markers are great for applying ink to this red rubber stamp. The images of the flowers were easy to do by using the Stamparatus. That way if I missed a spot, I could reapply the ink and stamp a second time.
One of my favorite ribbons in the whole catalog is the White 1/4″ Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon. This ribbon can be colored to coordinate with your card. Soft Suede Ink was applied with a Blending Brush until I had the off white color.
I have an exciting new stamp set to give you a sneak peak of today- Honeybee Home. The 2022 January-June Stampin’ Up! Mini Catalog premieres on January 4, 2022! There are so many great stamp sets, Designer Series Papers, Dies and Embossing Folders in this catalog! If you would like me to be your Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator and are in need of a catalog, drop me an email with your name and address. I will send you a Catalog and a free gift! My email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Now for the card!
The elements that come together to make this “Miss You” Honeybee Home card are in the Heart & Home Suite. The Heart & Home Designer Series Paper (DSP) is just gorgeous!
Honeybee Home Miss You Card
Cinnamon Cider Card Stock (CS) card base: 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches with a score line at 4 1/4 inches ( We will cut this to get the other Cinnamon Cider CS card pieces).
Very Vanilla CS: 4 x 5 1/4 inches, 2 1/2 x 3 3/4 inches and 3/4 x 1 3/4 inches (not pictured).
Heart & Home DSP: 2 1/2 x 5 1/4 inches.
Cutting the Card Base
Cut 1 1/2 inches off the left side of the Cinnamon Cider CS card base. This creates the card base and a 1 1/2 x 5 1/2 inch Cinnamon Cider CS piece. Cut 1 1/2 inches off the end of this piece. Now you have all of the card pieces needed.
Start out by stamping the inside of the card. Use Cinnamon Cider Ink to stamp the largest Honeybee onto the top of the 4 x 5 1/4 inch Very Vanilla CS. Then stamp the group of flowers along the side.
Now stamp the flower with the stem onto the center of the 2 1/2 x 3 3/4 inch Very Vanilla CS. Next stamp the two bees in profile. Stamp close to the flowers so it looks like the bees are attending to the flowers.
To finish up the stamping, stamp the sentiment “Miss You” onto the 3/4 x 1 3/4 inch Very Vanilla CS.
Putting the Honeybee Home card together
Use the Paper Snips to cut the right side of the flower with the honeybees. Next adhere this piece to the 1 1/2 x 4 inch Cinnamon Cider CS. The cut portion of the flowers will hang over the edge of the Cinnamon Cider CS.
Adhere the stamped 4 x 5 1/4 inch Very Vanilla CS to the inside of the Cinnamon Cider CS card base.
Fold the left-hand flap forward and adhere the Heart & Home DSP to the front panel. (Sorry-forgot to make a photo!)
Adhere the “Miss You” sentiment to the left over Cinnamon Cider CS piece. Trim to about 1/4 inch on either side.
Apply Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the flower and honeybee piece. Also apply a Stampin’ Dimensional on the back of the sentiment on the right. Apply two Dimensionals to the back of the sentiment on the left. You’ll see why you need two in a minute.
Remove the protective covering for the Stampin’ Dimensionals and adhere the flower and honeybee piece first. The edge of the Cinnamon Cider CS should line up with the right-sided edge of the front flap. Follow by adhering the sentiment. As you will see, you need two Dimensionals on the left because the right side is elevated by two.
Voila! You have lovely Honeybee Home “Miss You” card!
I loved making this card. I initially did not have any idea how it would turn out. Sometimes I just start out by cutting the card base and stamping some images. Then I start to see how I want them to come together.
It is very subtle, but you can add Bling!. I added the Champagne Rhinestone Jewels to the center of some of the flowers on the card to the right. In person, the rhinestones really sparkle!
The Honeybee Home stamp set and the Heart & Home DSP will be available to order starting January 4, 2022.
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.

Hello fellow crafters! I hope you are all doing well this week. Today’s card is made with Stampin’ Up!® Soar Confidently. This is a set that looks very vintage to me. Today’s card is a Simple Stamping card, perfect for the beginner stamper!
I love the simplicity of this card. This is definitely a very quick and simple card to make. I think this card with the words of encouragement would make a great Graduation wish.
Measurements: Night Of Navy Card Stock (CS) card base: 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 with a score line at 4 1/4 inches; Whisper White CS: 2 1/4 x 4 3/4 inches and 4 x 5 1/4 inches (not pictured); Neutrals 6 x 6 inch Designer Series Paper (DSP) in Night Of Navy: 4 x 5 1/4 inches.
Start stamping with Night Of Navy ink and stamp the sentiment “Soar Confidently In Your Own Sky” onto the bottom of the 2 1/4 x 4 3/4 inch Whisper White CS. Next stamp the hot air balloon image above the sentiment. Note: This is a red rubber stamp which can be stamped upon a firm surface. I have a scrap paper underneath in preparation of the next step. The black paper is just to allow you to see the card piece better.
The next step is to add a few more balloons, but to use the Stamping Off Technique. This means that after applying ink to the stamp, you first stamp onto a scrap paper, then onto the card piece. This is a great way to add dimension to the images on your card.
To conclude the stamping, stamp a hot air balloon on the right-hand side of the 4 x 5 1/4 inch Whisper White CS. Finish up using the Stamping Off Technique for the next 2 balloon images. This will be the inside panel of your card.
Putting the Card Together
Use your Bone Folder in order to make a crisp fold on the Night Of Navy CS card base. Begin to put the card together by adhering the inside panel onto the inside of the Night Of Navy card base.
Similarly, adhere the 4 x 5 1/4 inch Night Of Navy 6 x 6 inch Designer Series Paper to the front of the card base.
Complete the card by first adding Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the sentiment card piece. Finish by adhering the sentiment card piece to the card front slightly to the left-hand side.
Viola! You have made a quick and simple card that would be a great masculine Graduation card or just a card with words of encouragement. Also, you could use the image and stamp a different sentiment to make a nice masculine birthday card or thank you card if you wish.
Thank you for stopping by today. I have a new plan for the New Year. On Tuesdays I will be publishing a #simplestamping post, starting a Technique blog for a Wacky Wednesday post, and will continue the Fun Fold Friday posts. I hope you will enjoy all of them!

I am so honored and excited to be participating in today’s Top 10 Winners Hop! I won a spot in the Top Ten from Kylie’s International Blog Highlight. I thank everyone who voted for my card in that hop. I was feeling very creative for this card and I hope you like it. I can’t wait to see everyone’s projects!
I used a number of stamp sets for this card. I really like to mix and match! Country Home is where you will find the milk can and flowers. The “Thank You” sentiment and the script pattern are from Very Versailles. The remainder of the stamps are from: Gathered Together, Comfort & Hope and Forever Fern. Stampin’ Up!® ink colors include: Misty Moonlight, Bumblebee, Cinnamon Cider, and Early Espresso.
I have been really enjoying the versatility you get with the Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers. From the outside in on the milk can, I blended Dark Smoky Slate, Light Smokey Slate and Light Gray Granite. The flower arrangement has Cinnamon Cider, Just Jade and Calypso Coral.
I continued some of the design from the front to the inside of the card. The tiles from Country Home are stamped in Misty Moonlight. The grid pattern from Comfort & Hope is in Cinnamon Cider. The Forever Fern leaves are in Just Jade. The little splatter pattern stamped in Early Espresso (most are Stamped Off) is also from Forever Fern.
Techniques used to make this card include: Masking, Sponging, and Stamping Off.
Thank you so much for visiting today! You are at Theresa McEntee/Theresa’s Treasures. Have a very creative day!

I can’t believe the Stampin’ Up!® August-December 2020 Mini Catalog is live already! I chose the Poinsettia Place Suite for my card today. So much loveliness!
I made a lot of different poinsettia cards by placing the Poinsettia Petals stamps on my Stamparatus and stamping a bunch of them onto 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 inch Very Vanilla Card Stock (CS). I colored each one in a different color scheme using the Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers then ran them through my cutting machine. I’ve made about 4 different poinsettia cards so far. This was a really quick way to stamp a bunch of poinsettia pieces.
I stamped the poinsettia and leaves for this card in Soft Suede ink. I used a blender pen for shadowing, then sponged the edges of the poinsettia in Soft Suede ink. The leaves were sponged with Garden Green ink, then Soft Suede ink on the edges. I crinkled the paper a little before laying it out on the card for added dimension.
For the “Merry Christmas” sentiment I stamped it in Early Espresso ink then cut it out with the Stitched Rectangle Dies by extending the rectangle to fit the sentiment with partial die cutting. The edges of the sentiment as well as the edges of the 1st layer of Very Vanilla CS were also sponged in Soft Suede ink.

The end of the Stampin’ Up! 2019-2020 Annual Catalog is fast approaching. The last day to order from this catalog is on June 2, 2020. Ride With Me is a really cute stamp set with an adorable old fashioned pickup truck that will be retiring. There are coordinating Truck Ride Dies with which you can put together a 3D truck. Today’s card will be simple and straightforward. My mother told me she once drove a Cherry Red pickup truck when she first learned to drive. I made this pickup red in her memory.
There are 2 of the retiring colors on this card – Lovely Lipstick and Blueberry Bushel. I have really enjoyed this set of In Colors and will be sad to see them go.
Measurements: Whisper White Card Stock (CS): the card base is 11 x 4 1/4 inches with a score line at 5 1/2, and you need a 3 3/4 x 3 inch piece for stamping; Blueberry Bushel CS: 4 x 3 1/4 inches; and the 2018-2020 In Color Designer Series Paper (DSP): 4 1/4 x 2 1/2 inches in Lovely Lipstick.
I initially stamped everything in Memento Black ink. I did not like how the “I ❤ STMPN” blended in with the door.
I decided to try stamping the pickup in Lovely Lipstick ink. The balloons are stamped in Memento Black ink.
I thought the “I ❤ STMPN” stood out a little better when it was stamped in Memento ink on the Lovely Lipstick pickup truck.
I used Stampin’ Blends Alcohol markers in Dark Basic Black, Light Smokey Slate and Dark Daffodil Delight to start coloring the pickup.
The body of the pickup is colored with Dark Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Blend alcohol marker. I went over the wheel covers twice to make them stand out. I also went along the edge of the door twice on either side of the “I ❤ STMPN”. I colored one of the balloons in Lovely Lipstick.
The Blueberry Bushel does not come in an alcohol marker so I used the Stampin’ Write marker which is water based to color two of the balloons.
I adhered the stamped pickup card piece to the 4 x 3 1/4 inch Blueberry Bushel CS. The card base was folded and burnished with the Bone Folder to create a crisp fold. The 2018-2020 In Color Lovely Lipstick DSP was adhered onto the center of the card front. The pickup card piece was then adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Now for some Bling! I used the Rhinestone Basic Jewels, the Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels and the Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels. Lots of color and sparkle!
Using the Take Your Pick tool to transfer the rhinestones to the card, I applied one rhinestone in the corresponding colors to each balloon.
Also added a trio of the Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the Lovely Lipstick DSP.
And Viola! there is your Old Fashioned pickup truck with lots of balloons and bling! If you leave off the “I ❤ STMPN” you could use this card for just about any celebration.
Make sure you take a last look at the Stampin’ Up! 2019-2020 Annual Catalog and order anything you have had on your wish list now. Time is running out! There is only 1 week left before many products retire!

Today’s card is a Father’s Day card in a Vintage style. I made this now because I know how Father’s Day sneaks up on me!
The card is made with the Stampin’ Up! A Good Man stamp set. The paper is Soft Suede, Early Espresso and Very Vanilla cardstock (CS). The printed paper is from the Stampin’ Up! Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper (DSP). The ink for the man is Soft Suede. I used a Blender Pen to slightly color the image. The sentiment is stamped in Early Espresso ink. I used Linen Thread as an embellishment.
The measurements are: Soft Suede CS: 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches with a score line at 4 1/4 inches for the card base; Early Espresso CS: 4 x 3 inches and 4 1/4 x 1/2 inches; Very Vanilla CS: 5 1/4 x 4 inches for the inside of the card, 4 x 3 inches and 3 x 3/4 inches; and the Come Sail Away DSP: 4 x 2 1/4 inches.
Fold the Soft Suede card base at the 4 1/4 inch score line.
Stamp the man in Soft Suede ink onto the 4 x 3 inch Very Vanilla CS. Use one of the Layering Ovals Dies in a cutting machine to cut out around the man.
Use the Blender Pen to blend some of the ink onto the shirt and pants. i made the pants slightly darker than the shirt.
Use the next size up on the Layering Ovals Dies to cut an oval from the 4 x 3 inch Early Espresso CS.
Adhere the two ovals together.
Stamp the sentiment “You do a great job of being a great guy” in Early Espresso ink onto the 3 x 3/4 inch Very Vanilla CS.
Tie a 22 inch piece of Linen Thread twice around the 4 1/2 x 1/2 inch strip of Early Espresso CS. Tie in place to one side.
Adhere the DSP to the front of the card base.
Adhere the Early Espresso CS wrapped with the Linen Thread onto the card with adhesive.
Use Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back of the oval piece stamped with the man, and the strip with the sentiment.
Adhere the man and sentiment.
Viola! And that is it! Now you are ready for Father’s Day too!
