Stampin Up Wondrous Wreath & Cable Knit Embossing Folder Happy Stampers Blog Hop

Hi Stampers, Here we go with another Happy Stampers Blog Hop.  This week we had a color challenge. It was inspired by the colors is the new holiday catalog and the Petal and Paisley Designer Series Paper.  Now my question?  What do you do when you did not order the suite of products and need to use the colors in the  challenge?  The colors are Mint Macaroon, Rich Razzleberry and Delightful Dijon?  I put on my thinking cap and went to work.

Mat: Rich Razzleberry 4 x 5-1/4

The Details:

Stampin Up Wondrous Wreath & Cable Knit Embossing Folder card by Kristi @ www.stampingwithkristi.com

The Embossed Piece:  I put the piece of Whisper White card stock through the Cable Knit Embossing Folder to give it that warm textured look for the backdrop for the wreath.

The Wreath:  The wreath was stamped with the Wondrous Wreath stamp set using a fun technique with baby wipes.  Layer about 5 folded  baby wipes on a paper plate.  Take your reinkers  of  Rich Razzleberry, Mint Macaroon and Delightful Dijon.  Put droplets of the ink in a random pattern onto the baby wipe letting the colors touch and spread out a bit.  I then used this as a stamp pad and inked my wreath.  After I had my image I used the coordinating die to cut it out.  This technique gave me a variegated fun look and blended the colors beautifully.

Flowers:  I used the tiny die in the Botanical Builders set and cut out Delightful Dijon and Rich Razzleberry flowers and adhered them to the wreath with some tiny pearls added to the center of the flowers.

More Details:

Metallic Thread: Before adhering the bow I added some copper metallic thread to the wreath.

Ribbon:  The striped Delightful Dijon ribbon made a fun bow to add to the design.

The Tag: I cut a tiny tag out of Whisper White card stock and added a Rich Razzleberry sentiment from the Balloon Celebration stamp set.

Mini Pine Cones: The final detail were the darling NEW  mini pine cones from the Holiday Catalog.

Stampin Up Jars of Love & Happy Fishes Happy Stampers Blog Hop

Hi Stampers, Here we go with another hop for you today. Today we have a sketch challenge. When I decide what I am going to design, sometimes what seems to be a tough sketch goes together so quickly. Then there are days when the sketch which seem so simple and easy presents me with more design roadblocks. Today was one of those days. In the end, it was a fun card and one that I hope helps you design your own card from our sketch or heck, borrow my idea and CASE this one just the way it is. Either way, have fun and make some cards.

Stampin Up “Jars of Love” and “Happy Fishes” card:

I am such a “rebel”  I turned the sketch again.  It seemed to work best for the idea of using the Jars of Love stamp set.

Here is the recipe:

Card base:  Very Vanilla 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 scored at 4-1/4

Mat:  Dapper Denim: 4 x 5-1/4

DSP: By the Shore 3-7/8 x 5-1/8

The Details:

Stampin Up Jars of Love and Birthday Fishes card by Kristi @ www.stampingwithkristi.com

The Jar:  I stamped the medium sized jar onto a piece of Very Vanilla card stock with Dapper Denim ink.  The water in “stamped off” twice in Dapper Denim ink to give it a more translucent look of real water. I then used the Everyday Jars Framelits to cut the jar out.

The flowers:  using the little flower from the Jars of Love stamp set I stamped two sets of flowers in “stamped off” Calypso Coral ink.  The centers were then applied with regular strength Calypso Coral ink to give you contrast between the two steps.  Again I used the matching die to cut them out.

The leaves:  Mint Macaroon ink was used to stamp the leaves and then cut with the coordinating die

The fish:  Calypso Coral ink stamped the cute little fish and once again the die cut him out too.

All of these components were attached with glue dots to the front of the card.

Pearls were added for bubbles by the fish and around the cluster of flowers.

More Details:

 www.stampingwithkristi.com

The Banner:  I inked the banner in Dapper Denim ink using the Wetlands stamp for the Birthday and the word fishes came from the stamp out of the Jars of Love stamp set.  I added a enamel shape Calypso Coral heart to complete the sentiment.

The Ribbon: Dapper Denim ribbon was used for the loop and tied with a piece of Calypso Coral thick bakers twine.  This was  attached with a glue dot for the finishing details.

Stampin Up Botanical Blooms and Circles Happy Stampers Blog Hop

Hi Stampers, another Thursday, another share and another blog hop you for.  Today we had a sketch challenge and I must admit when I first saw the sketch I thought, “oh my, what am I going to do with this one?”  Well at first it was going to be balloons in place of the circles and then an idea came to me, sponged  circles made with a stencil.  I was so excited at how the card came out,  I hope you like it.

Stampin Up Botanical Blooms and Circles:

I turned the sketch from horizontal to vertical, but this card could go either way.  Maybe I will try that and see what happens.

Stampin Up Botanical Blooms card by Kristi @ www.stampingwithkristi.com

Here is the card recipe:

Inks used: Flirty Flamingo, Pumpkin Pie, Wild Wasabi and Daffodil Delight

Card base:  Heavy Whisper White 5-1/2 x 8-1/2, scored at 4-1/4

Mat: Wild Wasabi 4 x 5-1/4

Mat: Flirty Flamingo 3-7/8 x 5-1/8

Art Piece: Whisper White 3-3/4 x 5

The Details:

Stampin Up Botanical Blooms card by Kristi @ www.stampingwithkristi.com

The circles:

I started off by making some stencils with my Circle Framelits, I used the 3 small ones in the pack.  I then placed the first stencil on my art piece and with my sponge dauber inked the circle. I repeated this process for all of the circles, even over lapping some for interest.  After the circles were stenciled I used memento black ink and put the sentiment on the card.  I thought a big bold statement was necessary for this design.

The flowers:

Using the Botanical Builder Framlits I cut out several flowers and leaves.  The large flowers are Flirty Flamingo sponged with Flirty Flamingo ink.  The small flowers were cut from Daffodil Delight card stock.  I added a thick Whisper White Bakers Twine bow for more detail.

The leaves:

Again, using the Botanical Builder Framelits I cut out some Wild Wasabi leaves and stamped them with the coordinating stamp in Wild Wasabi ink.

The Bling:

A card would not be a “Kristi” card without some bling

Stampin Up Botanical Blooms card by Kristi @ www.stampingwithkristi.com

The Bling: 

I added a few Flirty Flamingo round enamel shapes along with some basic pearls to the card.  Oh, and don’t forget the pearls in the center of the flowers for the final detail.

While you have all your inks out don’t forget to add a surprise to the inside and your envelope.  All the colors and stamps were the same as the art piece on the front of the card.

Did you notice?

I am not sure if you noticed but the full card in picture one is slightly different that the close up picture.  Can you tell the difference.  After my blog was completed and I sat and looked at my card I was want not 100% happy, something was off.  Then it hit me…the ribbon was supposed to be behind the art piece, not in front of the art piece.  I retook the photo of the full image card and thought, good, I fixed it.  I then looked at my blog and realized I did not re shoot the close up.  Time limitations prevented be from re shooting and having my blog ready to link with my team so I just left it as is.  I am sorry that I overlooked this detail.  I am curious…which card to you like best?  The ribbon in front or behind the art piece?

Stampin Up More “Seaside Shore”

Hi Stampers, last week during our blog hop I used the Seaside Shore stamp set for our sketch challenge.  When I am doing cards for the hop and designing, I never really know what I want, so I make lots of different designs.  After I am done I  pick the one I like the best to showcase in the hop. I really liked all of then this week  so it was a hard choice to pick my favorite.  It is your lucky day,  Yippee, you get to see all of the cards I did starting with this one.  Enjoy.
