Stampin Up Floral Phrases Happy Stampers Blog Hop

Hi Stampers, Welcome to another Happy Stampers Blog Hop! Today we had a sketch challenge.   As soon as I saw the sketch I knew I needed to use the Detailed Floral Thinlits Die to start my design.  I also used the Botanical Blooms stamp set and matching die for the flowers in my sketch.  The colors you could use are endless.  Replace the pink with yellow or reds for a fun new version.

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 “Seaside Shore” Happy Stampers Blog Hop

Hi Stampers, today we have a sketch challenge.  I decided to get out and ink up my new Seaside Shore stamp set and use the matching Designer Series Paper for my hop share today.  This stamp set suite is one of my new favorites from the catalog.  Maybe it is the colors in the paper or the darling fish that remind me of my aquarium when I was a child. At any rate, it was so fun to use.  Enjoy my share today and Happy Stamping.

Stampin Up Drapery Fold, Fruit Stand, Fresh Fruit Happy Stampers Blog Hop

Hi Stampers, Well, my title for this blog is a mouth full, LOL.  I used so many products, I wanted to include them all in my heading.  I must say, I love the new catalog and all the products that are offered.  Over the weekend I played with several and again used the Fruit Stand paper along with the Fresh Fruit stamp set. I have already tried out the fruit stamps, so this week I used the flower image in the same set, Oh what pretty images……

1424388_1316812531678652_7544545586417585175_n

Today we had a color challenge.  How gorgeous, they all worked together beautifully.  Cucumber Crush, Flirty Flamingo and Daffodil Delight, are the bright shades of summer.

Here is the color challenge:

Stampin Up “Fruit Stand” and Fresh Fruit:

Stampin Up Drapery Fold Fruit Stand card by Kristi @ www.stampingwithkristi.com

Here is the recipe:

Card Base: Flirty Flamingo 4-1/4 x 11 scored at 5-1/2

Mat:  Daffodil Delight  4 x 5-1/4

Mat: Whisper White 3-7/8 x 5-1/8

DSP Mat: 3 x 7-1/4 scored at 3,  3-1/2,  4-1/2 ,  5,  6,  6-1/2

After the card was all folded  I dry fit it onto my card and cut any additional overage from the left hand side of the paper to make it fit.  I cut off about a 1/4.  It was easier for me to measure my score lines this way than to have lots of tiny measurements.

I watched several tutorials on the drapery fold card and then adapted the technique to my card. I did use my own measurements to get the size of pleats that I wanted.

More Details:

The Ribbon:  Flirty Flamingo Ruched Ribbon was used for the bow and band and adhered with glue dots.

The Flowers:  I stamped two flowers from the Fresh Fruit stamp set on Whisper White card stock.   One was stamped full strength with Watermelon Wonder and the other was stamped off once to get a light version for more variation.

The Leaves: I used the leaf stamp from the same set “Fresh Fruit”  The outline was Cucumber Crush ink and the solid image to fill it in was Pear Pizazz ink.

I fussy cut the flowers, then placed  them on the card with a glue dot and one with a  dimensionals.  The leaves were also fussy cut and adhered  with glue dots.

The Sentiment:  “Better Together” stamp set is where I found the saying for this card.  It was inked in Black Memento Tuxedo ink.

The Bling:  Daffodil Delight Enamel shapes and Pearls finish off the card with an added touch of elegance.

 

The Inside:

The inside always needs a bit of a surprise, so while your inks and stamps are out, add bit of color and design to the inside.

Stampin Up Fresh Fruit card by Kristi @ www.stampingwithkristi.com

Here is the card recipe:

Card Base:  Whisper White 4-1/4 x 11 scored at 5-1/2

Mat:  Pear Pizazz 4 x 5-1/4

Designer Series Paper (DSP): Fruit Stand 3-7/8 x 5-1/8

Cut both pieces of your DSP and then cut them apart on the diagonal with your Stampin Trimmer.  You will end up with extra pieces of paper cut on the diagonal, just flip them over and make another card using the extra paper. ( I will be showing my next card on Monday on how this will look, so stay tuned!)

After you adhere your DSP to the Pear Pizazz mat, cover the seam with a piece of the Peekaboo Peach ruched ribbon.

The Art Piece:

Cut a Pear Pizazz mat using the Lots of Labels Framelits.  Also cut a Whisper White art piece from the Lots of Labels Framelits in the next size down from your mat.

Using the Fresh Fruit stamp set, ink the peach stamp in Peekaboo peach ink.  Before I stamped it off, I used a sponge dauber and added a little Watermelon Wonder ink to the image to give the peach more color and depth.   Ink this image onto the art piece,then adding Pear Pizzazz leaves.  For a little background noise, some Pear Pizazz ink was used with the Timeless Texture stamp.  I adhered this to my mat and glued it to the card front with some dimensionals to make it pop a bit more.  Adding a Peekaboo Peach ruched bow completes the art piece.

The Sentiment: 1/2 x 2-1/2 Whisper White card stock, punched with  the triple banner punch and inked with Black Tuxedo ink using the Fresh Fruit stamp set.

The Flowers:  I die cut three tiny Peekaboo Peach flowers from the Botanical Builders Framelits and sponged the edges with a bit of Watermelon Wonder ink to make the flowers a bit more dimensional.  Little pearls complete the card.
