Happy Easter Wreaths & FF0080

I’m LOVING my Easter Wreaths! The card above I added butterflies (retired stamp set) to the tag label so I could participate with the Festive Friday #FF0080 Challenge! I chose BRIGHT COLORS, RIBBON, & BUTTERFLIES from the INSPO LIST. I basically CASEd (copy and share everything) this wreath from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog from page 127. I tweaked it and made it my own! There is A LOT of inspiration in the Stampin’ Up! catalogs! I used the Arrange A Wreath Bundle to create my cards. By the way, this bundle is on the Last Chance List and WILL NOT be in the NEW 2021-2022 Annual Catalog. You’ll be able to still purchase this bundle through May 3 or while supplies last! Also be sure to check out the Festive Friday Challenge #FF0080 to see all the wonderful cards created by others!

Here are my first two cards (below) that I created using the Arrange A Wreath Bundle. The one with the grass on the bottom is for my granddaughter, Theä! She is going to LOVE her card! I also added Bumblebee Enamel Dots to the Daffodil Delight flowers on the wreath on her card. For all the other flower centers, I punched out Flirty Flamingo little circles using a retired punch. This is where I definitely use my Take Your Pick tool for picking up those itty bitty circles and then putting them into place in the middle of those little flowers! I placed of drop of glue, using the Fine-Tip Glue Pen, in the center of the flowers first. I used a retired die set, Basket Builder Framelits Dies, for the grass. I primarily used TomBow Multipurpose Glue to adhere everything except the little flowers and centers. For that I used the Fine-Tip Glue Pen. LOVE THAT STUFF! By the way, you can use the Clear Block B or the Stamparatus for stamping all the images.

NOTE: The 1-1/2″ Circle Punch & Arrange A Wreath Bundle is on the Last Chance List!

CARD DETAILS

  • Card Base: Basic White Thick | 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ | Scored at 4-1/4″
  • Cardstock: Basic White, Daffodil Delight, Pear Pizzazz, Flirty Flamingo for punches/die cuts
  • Ink Pads: Highland Heather, Flirty Flamingo
  • Stamp all images then punch/die cut them
  • Ribbon: Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon & Ruched Ribbon (I used a retired ribbon) & Linen Thread
  • Embellishments: 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dots (Optional)
  • Use Multipurpose Glue and Fine-Tip Glue Pen to adhere items to card base.
  • Use a small hole punch to punch a hole for Linen Thread for sentiment label.
  • Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop up punched tag.
  • Use Mini Glue Dots to attach ribbons.

Hey There, Pumpkin!

It was really fun creating this Halloween card for our granddaughter, Theä! She is six years old and I’ve always called her my little “Pumpkin”. Hopefully she’ll get a smile when she opens her Halloween card, which also has a little SWEET TREAT that’s hidden inside! She is our one and only grandchild and she makes us smile! Which the inside sentiment says just that, “You make me smile!”

Creating the plaid background panel was a real treat because I’ve not done this little technique until now. I enjoyed the process and it’ll take me another time to get it just right. I’ll explain further in the card making details.

My card colors were inspired by a card challenge that I didn’t participate in due to lack of time. My card was done but I just didn’t have enough time to get it posted and linked before the deadline. I’ll still share the Color Challenge 397 image; which is also a link to that particular challenge so you can view the other wonderful cards over at the Paper Craft Crew.

CARD MAKING DETAILS

  • Stamp Sets: Harvest Hellos & Buffalo Check Cling Stamp Sets
  • Cardstock:
    • Base – Pumpkin Pie 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″; Scored at 4-1/4″
    • Front Panel – Highland Heather 3-3/4″ x 5″
    • Plaid Panel – Whisper White – 3-1/2″ x 4-3/4″ to make plaid background panel
    • Inside panel – Whisper White – 4″ x 5-1/4″
    • WW (2″ x 5/8″) & Highland Heather (2-5/8″ x 3/4″) for punch/die pieces for sentiment.
    • Pumpkin Pie & Just Jade pieces for punched pumpkin face/stem and leaf (stamp & fussy cut)
  • Ink Pads: Bumblebee & Just Jade & Pumpkin Pie & Jet Black Stazon
  • Stampin’ Write Markers:  Highland Heather & Just Jade
  • Tools: Lovely Labels Pick a Punch, Apple Builder Punch, Stamparatus (or use blocks A, B, D & F), Adhesives – Stampin’ Seal/Tombow Glue/Mini Glue Dots/ Temporary, Bone Folder, Stampin’ Trimmer, Ruler (for adding the plaid lines in the buffalo check).

Using the Stamparatus & Small Grid Paper: Stamp the background stamp onto the grid. Position the WW panel (to create plaid background) with buffalo checks lined up behind it, then place down with a small portion of temporary adhesive to keep in place. Ink up background stamp and stamp image, may need to repeat. 

Using Ruler: Create lines with Stampin’ Write Markers using the ruler to make vertical lines and horizontal lines within the buffalo check to create the plaid panel. My vertical lines are Just Jade and my horizontal lines are Highland Heather. I love how it turned out that I have more Highland Heather lines to coordinate with the Highland Heather panel. NOTE: If you don’t have the Stampin’ Write Marker Highland Heather or Just Jade, use Stampin’ Blends which will be in the product table as well. I have the single Stampin’ Write Marker but you have to buy the Stampin’ Write Markers in the color families to get the one marker or better yet, buy the entire set of markers, Many Marvelous Markers and then you’ll also get the case! Refer to my image to see where I’ve placed the lines.

TIP: Be careful not to drag the ink with your ruler as I found out the hard way! Wipe ink from the ruler before using second color then wipe clean when finished.

Assemble: From here just refer back to my card and assemble!

It’s a Panda Easter & Festive Friday Challenge #FF0003!

 

It's a Panda Easter, Party Pandas, #soinkingsweet, #thesweetinker, #tonyadenton, hand stamped card, Happy Easter

Easter is just around the corner so I needed to create a cute card for my granddaughter, Theä. She is four years old and loves receiving cards from her Grammie, which is me! I created a unique Easter card using the Panda Party Stamp Set from our Sale-A-Bration brochure. I knew what I had in mind with the Easter Egg in place of the balloon but I struggled with the rest. It takes me a while to create from my own imagination but that’s okay. I always like a challenge.

UPDATE!! I was chosen as one of three Festive Friday Faves in #FF0003 challenge!! WooHoo!!

#soinkingsweet, #thesweetinker, #handstamped, #festivefridaychallenge, #festivefridayfaves, #ff0003

Speaking of a challenge, check out Festive Friday Challenge to see not only my card but other cards as well! It’s a new challenge site for card makers such as myself. This Festive Friday Challenge is . . .

You too can make this card! I used the following: (Use retired stamp set Basket Bunch #143186 for the egg.)

Happy Halloween to My Little Pumpkin, Theä!

It’s been a while since I’ve posted! Shame on me!! But I’m posting today! On a personal note, I’ve been having a few health problems which has landed me in the ER four times in the past four months, including this month (along with an Urgent Care visit). I’m doing okay for now but hoping that someone can fix me at some point! LOL! I still have another procedure to get through and then go from there. Moving on to a much happier topic . . . (BE SURE TO SEE SPECIAL AT BOTTOM OF POST!)

I made the cutest Halloween Card for my “Little Pumpkin”! Theä is my granddaughter who is 2 1/2 years old. She is in Texas and I’m in Illinois! I’m from Texas as well as my entire family of many generations. My husband (who is from Illinois) and I moved to IL on May 12, 2008. We haven’t got to spend a lot of time with Theä since she was born but I’m so thankful for Face Book and FaceTime! I’ll include some pictures of her in her Wonder Woman costume for Halloween. But first let me share my card I made for her. I usually refer to her as my “Little Pumpkin” when I’m talking to her so I just loved how my card turned out.

2016-10-31-theas-halloween-card

I also made Halloween Tags for treat bags that my daughter, Tenaya, bought for Halloween goodies. These treat bags were for Theä’s classmates at her school she attends two days a week. These tags were so much fun to make!! I used Jar of Haunts Stamp Set from the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog as well as the Jar of Love Stamp Set from the Annual Catalog. I used the large jar from the Jar of Love. There is SO MUCH you can do with these two stamp set including the coordinating framlits!

For the tags I used Pumpkin Pie & Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Write Markers for Candy Corn in the jar. I also used Pumpkin Pie marker for the “dripping goo”.  I used Stampin’ Dimensionals under the front jar with the pumpkin face on it.

Every Blessing Christmas Card

2016.8.29 Every Blessing Christmas Card

Yes, it’s that time when we card makers need to be thinking ahead about our Christmas cards. This Christmas card design is for my MIL. I’m thrilled with how it turned out and better yet, she LOVES it as well. Yeah! I used her stamp set, Every Blessing, which is retired from the last Annual Catalog 2015-2016. I used Gold Vellum card stock from Hobby Lobby since Stampin’ Up! doesn’t carry that item. I embossed it using the Lucky Stars Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I love how it turned out! I also used Gold Glitz Dazzling Details in the middle of the star. Believe me, it looks stunning in person! (If you are interested in the stamp set, you could check on eBay for availability.)

“Wild Animal” Theme at the Paper Players Card Challenge #PP295!

Deer are WILD animals! I couldn’t resist this challenge. I used a RETIRED stamp set, Remembering Christmas from the 2014 Holiday Catalog! I love this stamp! We live on 100+ acres bumped up to the Shawnee National Forest in Southern Illinois. My huge expansion of a front yard serves as a refuge for the deer as I have a “No Porch Shooting” policy! I love watching them feel at home and safe especially when they have little ones! Several years ago you could see nearly a dozen bucks from upstairs off to one side of our place bedded down. I had never seen that many bucks together! It was really special. I hope you like my card!

The Paper Players Clean-and-Simple Challenge #295

2016.5.20_pp295

If you REALLY like this stamp perhaps you might find one on eBay or I could search for one on your behalf. It’s called Remembering Christmas – Wood Mount #131760 &  Clear Mount #131763 – It has a sentiment that says “Remembering you at Christmas and wishing you the best in the new year” to be stamped on the inside and a sentiment “Warm Wishes” for the front of the card. Both are in a beautiful cursive font. I just found this image to share with you!

2016.5.20 Remembering Christmas Stamp Set

I used the Wondrous Wreath Photopolymer Stamp Set to make the color. I did some tracing to fussy cut and fit it around the neck. I LOVE the way it turned out! The sweet little Merry Christmas sentiment is from The Petite Pairs Stamp Set which will NO LONGER be available when the NEW CATALOG goes live on June 1st! I truly love this stamp set and I hate to see it go!

Happy Easter with FMS Challenge!

This will be a really quick post due to a tragic loss in my husband’s family! I had meant to upload this yesterday and call it THROW BACK THURSDAY as I used retired items. We received tragic news of the loss of a loved yesterday and I just realized that I needed to get my card posted and uploaded to Freshly Made Sketches before being with Roy’s family for several days.

I love Cindy Hall’s sketch not to mention her beautiful card that she created! You really need to check her card out along with the other talented designers over at FMS! See the link below!

I made this cute Easter card for my one and only granddaughter, Theä Sage. She is a little over two years old and our pride and joy! I hope she loves the little bunnies!
