Stampin Up “Lemon Zest” Happy Inkin Thursday Blog Hop

Hi Stampers, today I am sharing a card made with one of the product bundles from the new catalog.  My order arrived and then we went out of town and I had to wait a whole week to play with my new stuff!  I am in love with the Lemon Zest stamp set and punch.  I am a punch gal verses a die cut gal so when Stampin’ Up! come out with a punch I am all over it.  Today was a sketch challenge and this set fit perfectly with my design ideas.

Can you believe that I didn’t change the sketch this week?  That must be first! LOL

Stampin’ Up! Lemon Zest:

Stampin' Up! Lemon Zest card by Kristi @ www.stampingwithkristi.com

Card base: Lemon Lime Twist 4-1/4 x 11, scored at 5-1/2

Mat: Whisper White 4 x 5-1/4 (this will make our background paper)

Banner: Easter Palace DSP 2-5/8 x 4-3/4 (cut a tale on the end with your snips)

Top banner: Whisper White embossed with the new Layered Leaves EF ( cut a tail with your snips)

Sentiment: Whisper White 5/8 x 3-1/2 punched with the Triple Banner Punch

The Details:

I made the background paper using the slice stamp from the Lemon Zest stamp set

  • Ink up your slice with Daffodil Delight ink and with a sponge dauber ink the edges in Lemon Lime Twist
  • Stamp this on your Whisper White mat until the paper has several slices inked (I washed my stamp in between each image)
  • Wrap a piece of Lemon Lime Twist Ribbon around the art piece and adhere this to the card base with Fast Fuse
  • Mount your embossed banner to the DSP banner and adhere to the front of the card with dimensionals

More Details:

Stampin' Up! Lemon Zest card by Kristi @ www.stampingwithkristi.com

  • Using Whisper White card stock, ink up your lemon stamp with Daffodil Delight ink and with your sponge dauber ink one side of the lemon with Lemon Lime Twist Ink. Then stamp your image
  • Punch your lemons out with the matching lemon punch
  • Ink your leaves with Lemon Lime Twist Ink using the stamp off technique to lighten the image.  Before you stamp the second time,  dab the top part of the leaf with a sponge dauber in more Lemon Lime Twist ink.  This give the leaf more dimension and shading
  • Punch the leaves with the matching punch
  • Adhere the bottom lemon with glue dots and adhere the top lemon with dimensionals onto your banner
  • Add your leaves with glue dots
  • Make a bow with the Lemon Lime Twist ribbon and attach with a glue dot to the left of the lemons and on top of the wrapped ribbon

The Finishing Touches:

  • Stamp your sentiment in Tuxedo Black ink and adhere to the skinny banner
  • Add some Daffodil Delight Enamel shapes and a few rhinestones and pearls to complete the card

The Inside:

I stamped the lemon slices on the inside just like I did on the background paper on the front of the card

The Envelope:

I stamped the lemon just like I did on the ones I punched out on the front of the card.  It adds so much to decorate the envelope, I think this is my favorite part!

Hi Stampers,  The new catalog is up and we can start ordering all the wonderful new products to make beautiful cards.  My order has been placed but the ordering center must be swamped because I am still waiting for all the new “stuff” I ordered.  Today I am working with just one new item and that is the Fresh Floral Designers Series Paper.  I wanted to use something new so this is what I have to work with today.  We had a sketch today and I think the design worked beautifully with the new paper.

Stampin’ Up! “Affectionately Yours” meets “Eastern Beauty” Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hi Stampers, The end of May is the closing of the current catalog at Stampin Up.  That means just a few more cards using some of my old favorites before I welcome in some wonderful new products in June.  Today I am playing with the Affectionately Yours Designers Series Paper one last time before it retires.  My share today also has a small sneak peek of what is coming in the new catalog, the new stamp set Eastern Beauty.

Header for blog hop

Here is the sketch:

I turned my card from vertical to horizontal today and added ribbon in place of the two strips of paper.  That is what I love about a sketch, you can literally copy the sketch or use it as a jumping off point to create your design.

Stampin’ Up Something For Baby Thank You Card

Hi Stampers:  Today I am sharing a thank you card that I make for a wonderful group of friends.  These wonderful ladies all made generous contributions to a local charity called “Boxes of Love”.  This group puts together boxes with clothes and supplies for foster babies in the Portland Oregon area.  It is a way to show these precious little ones they are loved and wanted.  I wanted to let these dear friends know how much I appreciated their contributions by making a very special thank you card for each of them.  The box they generously gave to was for a baby girl.  My promise was to match their contributions,  so my donation was to fill a baby boy box.  My heart was overflowing with gratitude for all these friends who  did so much  to  help this cause.    Together we can make a difference.

Stampin’ Up! More “Big on Birthdays” Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hi Stampers, Another Thursday and that means more hopping with our Happy Inkin’ Thursday team.  Today we had a sketch challenge and I took some liberties (again).   The “Big On Birthdays” stamp set is moving to the annual catalog and I am very happy about that.  Today’s share is using that set and some of the retiring Party Animal DSP.  Now if you don’t have this paper the great thing about this card is you can use any paper you have, just change the ink colors to match the paper you choose, Easy Peasy!

 

Oh and do you notice our new banner?  Same great group and same wonderful team. We just changed out look.  I hope you like it, I sure do!

Here is the sketch:

I turned my card orientation to vertical and switched my art piece to the left.  For some reason they always seem backward to me when the art piece is on the right.  (I am such a rebel, lol)
