Stampin’ Up Sure Do Love You

Good Morning Everyone! Today is our Inkin’ Krew monthly Blog Hop. Welcome aboard. Please continue the hop to see what our other creative team members have done.

It has certainly been cold here in the heart of the country. We do have some snow, but nothing like the northeast and east coast has had. Actually, we are so dry, I wouldn’t mind a foot of wet snow. I decided many years ago that it is a good thing we humans are NOT in control of the weather, or it would be a REAL mess.

Today’s card is from the Sure Do Love You Bundle.

I began by cutting a stencil from a Post-It Note with the 3 small hearts in the Lots to Love Box Framelits, part of the Sure Do Love You Bundle. You save 10% when you order the bundle as opposed to ordering dies and stamps separately. I digress.

Using the stencils and 3 shades of pink (Berry Burst, Melon Mambo and Powder Pink) I sponged little hearts at random over a Whisper White Thick card stock panel. Over this I adhered with Liquid Glue a strip of Silver Foil Sheets. Taking a piece of Berry Burst Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon, I taped it to the back and over the Silver Foil strip.

Use the Embossing Buddy to go over the card stock before stamping in Versamark. The large outline heart was stamped in Versamark on Berry Burst. The same procedure was followed for the ‘You Are My Valentine’ heart. Both were then heat embossed with Silver Emboss Powder and die cut with their coordinating dies.

The outline heart was then adhered at an angle to the heart-stamped Whisper White panel with Liquid Glue. The ‘valentine’ heart was placed inside this outline and adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

A Berry Burst Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon bow was attached at the base of the heart with a Glue Dot and three rhinestones finish the front.

On the inside, a single outline heart was stamped in Berry Burst on Whisper White card stock. Over this, the sentiment banner, also from Sure Do Love You, was stamped in Powder Pink. This panel was adhered with Liquid Glue to a mat of Berry Burst and into the card base.

Easy-Peasy!

The envelope flap received more random stenciled hearts. The small leaf stamp from Sure Do Love You was stamped in the corner of the envelope front in Powder Pink as well as a single small heart in Berry Burst.

Stampin’ Up! Heartfelt Blooms Sympathy

Today is Thursday, the 4th day of 2018. How did it get to be the 4th? Before we know it, it will be summer and this winter season of frigid record-setting temperatures will be one for the history books. Life is passing quickly, so make the most of every day!

Today’s card is another sympathy, which is why I guess I am brought to the realization once again of how brief (in the big picture) is our time here on earth.

The Sale-A-Bration catalog has some wonderful items you can choose, for FREE, with a purchase of $50. One of those is the stamp set I chose to use today, Heartfelt Blooms.

This stamp is one of Stampin’ Up!s new Distinctive stamps, that is to say, photorealistic. I love this one.

I began by stamping the image in Smoky Slate on Smoky Slate card stock. This panel was mounted on a mat of Berry Burst. A piece of Berry Burst Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon was wrapped around and taped on the back. This panel was then adhered to the card base with Liquid Glue.

For the sentiment, I again stamped the design in Smoky Slate, this time on Whisper White card stock, and cut it with a Layering Ovals Framelits die. Using Berry Burst and the sentiment from Heartfelt blooms, I stamped the sentiment over the flower image. To give the oval more definition, I simply rubbed the Smoky Slate Classic Stampin’ Pad around the edge, making a nice, even, narrow band of gray. This was adhered to a Berry Burst scalloped Layering Ovals die-cut. Using Stampin’ Dimensionals I adhered this layered oval to the card front.

For the inside, I again stamped the floral image in Smoky Slate on Smoky Slate card stock, this time placing it more in the corner. Then, leaving room for my sentiment, I stamped the corners of my panel with the floral image.

The sentiment is from Heartfelt Sympathy and is stamped in Berry Burst. This panel was adhered to a Berry Burst mat and into the card base.

For the Whisper White Medium Envelope, I stamped the floral image in Smoky Slate twice on the flap and just in the corner on the front.

I need to state here that, while it is not so obvious on the gray, the imperfections of this stamp took on Huge Proportions when it was stamped on white. I kept trying to get a good image, and finally realized that the stamp had holes in it. This prevented a clear image no matter what I did. The more I stamped, the worse it got!

Stampin’ Up! stands behind their products, and, while it doesn’t often happen (this is the first problem I have had), there are times when an imperfect product is shipped. Before I got off the phone with their support team, a new stamp was on its way to replace the faulty one.

I debated about showing the envelope on this blog, but I think you all need to know that this company does indeed stand behind their products and will replace a bad one. I think this is the third envelope I did, and I am not proud of it. The recipient of this card may get a naked envelope!

Stampin’ Up! Hold on to Hope Sympathy

The new Hold on to Hope Bundle (Occasions Catalog page 27, available tomorrow) was the basis for this card inspired by Mary over at Stamps ‘n’ Lingers. You can see her card here.

This is a beautiful stamp set and has excellent dies as well. It will become a staple for me. And, it is very versatile, could be used for Baptisms, confirmations, encouragement, Easter….the list goes on.

wild wing creations-4

I began with a panel of Whisper White card stock and So Saffron, Melon Mambo, Pool Party, and Night of Navy inks, sponging the colors randomly for my background.

The card base is Pool Party and the mat is Night of Navy.

Using the dies from the Hold on to Hope Bundle I die cut a Night of Navy cross and an openwork cross in Whisper White, adhering them together with Liquid Glue. Behind the cross is a die cut from Flourish Thinlits, also in Whisper White, and adhered to the sponged panel with Liquid Glue. The layered cross is adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The sentiment is from Thoughts and Prayers stamp set, stamped in Night of Navy on Whisper White. It is punched with the Everyday Label Punch, with the outer long edges trimmed off with my Paper Snips Scissors. It was just too wide for this card. Using the Melon Mambo and Night of Navy sponges, I sponged the edges of the sentiment label. I used whatever ink remained in the sponge and did not re-ink.

This, too, was attached with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The Hold on to Hope butterfly is stamped in Pacific Point (I thought the Pool Party would be too pale) and cut with the die from the bundle. Liquid Glue adheres the art panel to the mat and into the card base.

On the inside, a stamped-off-once flower spray, also from Hold on to Hope, in Pacific Point serves as a backdrop for the Heartfelt Sympathy sentiment in Night of Navy. I inked the flower spray, stamped it off, then wiped off the three flowers and inked them with my light Rich Razzleberry Blends, then stamped my Whisper White panel.

I like this little added touch of color. You could use a Melon Mambo Stampin’ Write Marker, and I probably would have, if I had had my markers available at the time.

Using the little corner stamp in Hold on to Hope, I stamped the corners of the inside of the card base in Night of Navy, wishing I had the Stamp-A-Ratus to get the placement perfect. But, I don’t, so they are not exactly where I wanted them.

For the Whisper White Medium Envelope, I stamped the little butterfly several times in Night of Navy on the front

and a pair of the same flower spray as on the inside, only in Night of Navy, on the flap.

I know you will get a lot of good from this Bundle, a must have, in my opinion.
