My Cards!

I decided to stamp all three sentiments best wishes, Thinking of YOU, and Congratulations on my cards that have the So Saffron patterned card base. You can also use other sentiment stamps as the possibilities are endless when it comes to stamping on the provided die cuts! Once you use up your supplies in the kit, you’ll still have your stamp set and ink spot to use to make other cards. FYI: You can purchase a Gray Granite Classic Stampin’ Ink Refill for your Classic Stampin’ Spot!

Stamparatus™

Although you get an acrylic stamp block in your kit, I am SPOILED using Stampin’ Up!’s Stamparatus™! It allows me to stamp with precision. If my image didn’t stamp just right, I can re-ink my stamp and stamp once more to get my image or sentiment just right. You can stamp just using the acrylic stamp block provided in the kit if you’d like, but I’m telling you . . . you cannot go wrong investing in this stamping tool. I’ll include just two pics below that kind of give you an idea of what it looks like and how I use it. I think I should do a whole other post just on this WONDERFUL tool! By the way, the Stamparatus™ comes with TWO plates and MORE!

Once I stamp the sentiment, I clean the stamp before moving it in place onto the next sentiment die cut label. Then I re-ink the stamp, close the hinged plate, and press down. When you gently raise the plate up, you will see the stamp releasing itself from the die cut cardstock. Viola! PERFECT STAMPING! Another very HELPFUL TOOL is the Take Your Pick™! Be sure to check it out! It’s a multipurpose pickup and precision tool which simplifies meticulous tasks when crafting! See both the Stamparatus™ and Take Your Pick™ in my product table.

Days To Remember!

I love creating SIMPLE cards y’all! I would consider this card as SIMPLE if I had not added embellishments, yet it’s STILL SIMPLE! I could step this card up by adding a layer of Bumblebee cardstock underneath the wood textured DSP (In Good Taste 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper). I hate to point out that I was barely able to fit my calendar onto my die cut from Tasteful Labels Die Set. I will be creating this card again so I will try a different die from my Stitched Rectangles or Stitched So Sweetly Die Sets.

Some people say they aren’t creative, which includes me! Ha! When I want to create a card, I usually know what stamp set and/or DSP I want to use and then I go from there. That’s what I did here. I wanted to use the Days To Remember Photopolymer Stamp Set. Plus with the person in mind that is receiving this card, I knew that I wanted to pull out the ‘barn wood design’ from the In Good Taste DSP. I used a basic layout that I’ve used before for another card.

Using Bumblebee Gingham Ribbon was a no brainer! Then I stamped a flower on top of the 31 in the calendar with Bumblebee Ink Pad (In Color 2020-2022). I hesitated about adding an embellishment in the middle of the flower as it would rather hide the 31 but I threw caution to the wind! LOL! Then I decided to add more embellishments from the Metallic Pearls, which has both Gold and Silver Metallic Pearls. I’ll add two more pictures that I took. I struggle getting good pictures!

Depending on my lighting, it changes the look of the woodgrain when I take pictures. I truly want you to see the beauty of the woodgrain! This DSP pack has other woodgrain as well. Be sure to check out ALL the designs by clicking on this product in the table below! Here are some other project examples from the current 2021-2022 Annual Catalog. I can’t wait to create more cards with the Days To Remember stamp set or other projects using calendars!

CARD DETAILS:

  • Basic White Thick | 8-1/2” X 5-1/2” Base – Scored at 4-1/4”
  • Basic White 4” x 2-1/4” | Sentiment Die Cut 
  • DSP | 5-3/8″ x 4-1/8″ | Attach to card base | I use Multipurpose Liquid Glue (SEE TIP!)
  • Cut ribbon at 6-1/4″ and 3″ for the knotted bow
  • Add longer ribbon to front panel. (SEE TIP!)
  • Die cut label
  • Stamp the calendar using Momento Tuxedo Black onto to label | Use Acrylic Blocks | Create Mask (SEE TIP!)
  • Stamp the flower or select a different image from stamp set.
  • Using Stampin’ Dimensionals, pop up the die cut label
  • Add knotted ribbon with Mini Glue Dot
  • Add embellishments
  • Your done accept placing into an envelope! Click HERE for envelopes! (NOT in product table)

TIPS:

Tom Bow Multipurpose Liquid Glue is my favorite adhesive! It’s more forgiving when adding layers to a card. I also use Stampin’ Seal but I prefer the liquid glue, especially when my border around the panel is so tiny. It allows me to maneuver my panel exactly where it needs to be on my card base.

I used the Sunday through Monday stamp for the week days. This stamp set gives you two choices. You’ll have to create a mask using post it notes or even scotch tape. You can also use vellum, which I used first, but then I created a template from a Window Sheet so I could use it over and over! I will either create a video or better instructions to post this week! Fingers crossed!

Once you decide about where you want your long piece of ribbon to be placed, place the DSP face down on top of the ribbon. Add Stampin’ Seal to the side edges of the back side and fold the ribbon ends over onto the back. I also use my Take A Pick Tool and place two glue dots underneath the ribbon on the front side. One is underneath the label and the other one is on the other side of the bow.

Special Offering! Hope Box available for EVERYONE!

Stampin’ Up! is offering Shelli’s Hope Box to EVERYONE!

Due to a glitch, there were some customers that were unable to subscribe to Paper Pumpkin’s Hope Box between July 31 to August 5. As always, Stampin’ Up! has a way of making things right! So between August 24 until August 31, the Hope Box is AVAILABLE TO ALL North American customers, regardless of subscription (while supplies last).

I had my FIRST Creating with Kits! event this past Thursday and we all made Shelli’s Hope Box. A little back history, Shelli Gardner cofounded Stampin’ Up back in 1988. She was the CEO but her daughter, Sara, took over as CEO a few years ago . . . which by the way, she is doing a great job! I love Sara! Shelli is still a Board Member and we love seeing her still involved with her company!

Back to the Hope Box . . I LOVE IT! It’s so cute but more than that is the message that each card conveys to the receiver. I don’t know about you but I feel that we all need FAITH and HOPE in life to be able to live it in JOY! At my event, I shared my kit with Cindy D. who came to see what my Creating with Kits! was all about. As I made one of each card, I had her make two of each card. I call that hands on learning and she was thrilled with her cards! She had NEVER made a card. I demonstrated each card along with tips and tricks on how to do things. I do believe that I have a new card maker in the making! WooHoo!

NOTE: Hope Box Refills will continue to be available to subscribers only. After this limited offering, the Hope Box FULL KIT will only be available on the regular past kit schedule for subscribers only.

Before attending my Creating with Kits! event, Judy W. told me this was one of her favorite Paper Pumpkin Kits. My pictures don’t do my cards justices! I forgot to pop the words Hope and Tomorrow on the second card with the dimensionals provided. It’s handmade so it doesn’t have to be perfect! I had plenty of embellishments left to add more to my cards but sometimes less is more. Be sure to watch the YouTube video that I’ll include later in this post.

NOTE: When you are a Paper Pumpkin Subscriber, you’ll receive an email with a YouTube Video and other very useful information for that month’s kit. Plus you can join our Facebook group for Paper Pumpkin Subscribers and see alternate ideas that others come up with for their kits.

Kit Details:

This kit contains enough supplies to create nine cards and coordinating envelopes plus extra components to turn the box into a Hope Box!

Luvin’ the Pattern Party Designer Series Paper!

I mentioned in my last post that I would create another card using that same layout and here it is! Don’t you just LOVE this Pattern Party 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper (DSP)?! Honestly there are so many different designs in this 48 sheet DSP pack of papers! You get 4 each of 12 double-sided designs and they are acid free/lignin free so you can use them if you scrapbook. I made this birthday card for Leigh Ann. She’s been my BFF for nearly 4 decades! Don’t worry, she received her card in the mail yesterday so she has seen it already! She subscribes to my blog so I purposely waited to post her card. Happy Birthday Leigh Ann!

The Pattern Party DSP is one of four products that you can EARN! Spend $150.00 in products (before tax/shipping) and earn 10% in Stampin’ Rewards, which would be $15.00 that you can then apply towards the Pattern Party DSP. You could also HOST A PARTY, which then your guest would help you EARN Stampin’ Rewards. There are four levels of EARNING POWER! You can spend your Stampin’ Rewards on any product(s)! For further details about Stampin’ Rewards, click HERE!

To see ALL the different patterns in the Pattern Party DSP, click the link above or in the product table below! Here is the one sheet that I just fell in LOVE with to make my card using a butterfly die from the Brilliant Wings Die set! By the way, you can get this die and coordinating stamp set as a bundle and SAVE 10%! It’s called the Butterfly Brilliance Bundle.

CARD DETALS:

  • Basic White Thick | 8-1/2” X 5-1/2” Base – Scored at 4-1/4”
  • Basic White 4” x 2-1/4” | Sentiment Die Cut 
  • Flirty Flamingo | 5” x 3-3/4” – Front Panel
  • Pattern Party DSP | 3 pieces @ 1-1/2” x 3-1/2” SEE TIP before cutting!
  • Adhere front panel to the card base
  • Adhere the 3 pieces of DSP
  • Die cut the Basic White cardstock for Thank You sentiment using Tasteful Label Dies
  • Use B Clear Block or Stamparatus to stamp the sentiment onto the die cut panel using Flirty Flamingo ink pad.
  • Die cut the butterfly and adhere to die cut panel. Use Mini Glue Dots or Multipurpose Glue.
  • Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to POP UP the sentiment die cut.
  • Add embellishment to the butterfly’s body.

TIPS:

  • Cut the DSP at 4-1/2” x 3-1/2”, then cut it at 1-1/2” along the long side to get your 3 strips.
  • Place die cut cardstock for Thank You sentiment on Stamparatus. Position magnets. Place your stamp where you need it, close your hinged plate so that it picks up the stamp. Then ink up your sentiment stamp, close hinged plate and press . . . now it is stamped!
  • Using the Stamparatus allows you to reink your stamp if you need to add more ink to get better coverage! I highly suggest investing in this awesome tool!

Thank You To Those Who STILL Follow Me!

If you have been following me for sometime, THANK YOU for hanging in there with me as a Hobbyist Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator! I’ve been a SU DEMO for over 10 years. A month after my hubby and I moved from my home state of Texas to his home state of Illinois was when I was first introduced to Stampin’ Up! in June 2008. My husband’s cousin took me to a ‘card party’, which I had no idea what it was all about. Let’s just say that I was hooked from the get go! Honestly, I looked forward to each and every card club as I was able to join the card club group. It allowed me to meet new people and we always had so much fun creating cards or whatever project was on that month’s agenda. I finally signed up as a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator in March 28, 2011. I wanted the 20% discount on all the FABULOUS Stampin’ Up! products! Enough of the back story so fast forward to today! Ha!

I created my So Inking Sweet blog years ago, which for the most part has worked for me. Then I had issues with my web host plus I found out that my blog has been unresponsive across mobile devices the entire time. Sigh! SO I have decided to get professional help from Amy at WebsByAmy, which is now my NEW web host! My blog will be getting a new face lift as well as I’ll have a NEW Crafty Woman Theme that Amy is creating for Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators! I don’t have the exact date as of yet as to when that will take place so stay tune! PLUS I’ll be getting NEW graphics! I’m SUPER EXCITED y’all!

NOW let me talk about the card you see with the little birdie! I created this card for Stampin’ Up!’s OnTour that took place back in April. The stamp set was sent to SU Demo’s that signed up for the OnTour plus it’s a new stamp set in the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog. There were quality issues with the stamp set and as always, Stampin’ Up! takes care of their demonstrators as well as their customers! We were able to choose a replacement stamp set! Due to the quality issue, this stamp set in NOT AVAILABLE! So those of you that received a catalog from me, make a note that Etched In Nature Stamp Set on page 101 is a NON-ORDERABLE item.

NEW JULY-DECEMBER 2021 MINI CATALOG

Stress less this season! With the perfect paper crafting products for Halloween, Christmas, and every celebration in between, the July–December 2021 Mini Catalog has got your creativity covered.

Stampin’ Up! offers decades of industry experience, perfect product and color coordination, unique themes, and original designs. No matter the project, Stampin’ Up!’s one-of-a-kind products stand out among the rest!

Although the catalog states JULY, it launches AUG 3 TODAY! Stampin’ Up! made the decision to delay the launch due to product delays which is tied to COVID-19 issues in manufacturing and shipping delays. Stampin’ Up! is doing their VERY BEST in this area and realizes this issue makes it hard for their demonstrators to plan in advance at times. Please practice kindness and understanding during this ongoing ‘pandemic’ that we’ve ALL been affected by since the onslaught of COVID-19.

IT’S SALE-A-BRATION TIME!

Sale-A-Bration (SAB) is one of Stampin’ Up!’s biggest promotions of the year. It’s packed with perks for demonstrators, overflowing with opportunities for customers, and filled with fun for everyone! During SAB, we can ALL EARN FREE, EXCLUSIVE PRODUCTS for every $50 USD and $100 USD we spend. PLUS you can enjoy unique, unbeatable benefits when you host a party or join the Stampin’ Up! family! During this period, you will be able to enjoy all the benefits of Sale-A-Bration!

Personally, I have to tell you that this is the VERY BEST Sale-A-Bration Brochure ever due to the amount and type of products you can earn for FREE!

Did you notice the pre-earn dates in the SAB image? That is one of the perks for demonstrators! We can pre-order SU products before our customers as well as pre-earn FREE products before SAB launches!

NOTE:

I’m creating this post the day before it goes LIVE. Therefore, when you are reading this my blog may not be updated with certain links or the new catalog images in the right hand panel. Remember that you can download ANY current catalog from my ONLINE STORE! They’ll be at the bottom of the home page. You can also purchase catalogs if you are not a current customers. BUT if you place a minimum of $75 in products (before tax/shipping), I can mail you a catalog(s)!

Although you cannot order the Etched in Nature Stamp Set, you can recreate this card layout using other stamp sets and dies. Perhaps I will do that myself and then share the layout measurements at that time!

Clear Block Stamping Technique

I was finally able to upload my video to YouTube! It only took me two days, 8 or 9 upload tries lasting hours and hours and hours just to get an ‘error occurred’ when it would almost be completely uploaded! I live in an area where I don’t have broadband and I even have to keep my cell phone in the kitchen window to have a signal. We are currently waiting on Starlink to be available in our area, which hopefully is only a few more months away! This will provide higher upload speeds and so that will definitely help when I do have videos to share.

Speaking of videos, here is the video that should have been with my previous post. Make sure to watch throughout for Tips & Tricks! I’ve been stamping and creating for 13 years (this month) and I have definitely learned a thing or two along the way! In fact, I just celebrated my 10th Anniversary as a Stampin’ Up! Independent Demonstrator this past March 28! WOW! I signed up as a Demo so I could take advantage of buying SU products at a discount not to mention that I LOVE Stampin’ Up! Products!

Visit my previous post HERE for card details and products used for the cards you see in my video!

As you can tell, I’m still new to doing videos! Plus I cringe every time I watch a replay! LOL! Hey . . . at least I’m trying and that is what counts in the end! Right?! BTW click HERE for The Absorber XL Drying Chamois (image below) you see me using in my video! It’s 29″ x 18″ and I cut quite a few 9″ x 7″ pieces from it! Yes, it will stain but I find that rinsing it and/or soaking it in cold water for just a bit keeps it looking better and smelling fresher! I have used the one in the video so many times yet it still looks decent and still smells just fine. It’s worth the extra little expense and it will last a long, long time. The Simply Shammy is also great product by Stampin’ Up! and I use it as well. It depends on what I’m doing as to which one I end up using and sometimes I’m using both!

Clear Block Stamping with Tasteful Touches!

As a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator I receive Weekly Updates on Tuesday’s from Stampin’ Up!, which also includes a Succeed Weekly section. This past Tuesday it spot lighted a technique that I had not done in ages called Clear Block Stamping. I’ll include the SU image below that I shared this past Wednesday (I think) on my So Inking Sweet Facebook page that I used for illustration. Clear Block Stamping is not only a FUN technique but SUPER EASY! I first created a card that wasn’t layered (see below), it was just the card base and I stamped on it. This is to show you that you don’t need a lot of supplies to do this technique. Then I stepped my card up by layering a front panel onto coordinating card stock (see above). Either way the recipient will LOVE receiving snail mail that is a specially crafted card just for them!

I’m not great at taking pictures and I do not have good natural lighting but believe me when I say that these cards look so much better in person! Did you notice the difference in the block stamping in the above picture? Notice how much better it looks on the left card? Watch my video as I not only explain but show you how to get better coverage when Clear Block Stamping. Perhaps NOT! My video has been unsuccessful uploading to my YouTube not once but three times now. UGH! It’s 11:58pm (June 24) so I’m throwing in the towel. With that being said, hopefully it will work out tomorrow so I can post it! It’s a disappointment that I’m posting without my video so you can see how to do this technique! Plus I struggle making myself do videos! Fingers crossed it will upload tomorrow, which is actually now today (June 25). So stay tuned!

CARD DETALS:

  • Card Base: Basic White Thick | 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ | Scored at 4-1/4″ (or coordinating colored card base for layering)
  • Card Front Panel: Basic White Thick | 5-1/4″ x 4″
  • Ink Pads: Bumblebee, Misty Moonlight, and Just Jade
  • Stamp: Tasteful Touches Cling Stamp Set
  • Clear Block: Block D
  • Embellishments: Metallic Pearls (includes both silver/gold)
  • Stamp with Block D first then stamp image and sentiment 
  • If doing a layer, adhere panel to card base using Multipurpose Glue or Stampin’ Seal after stamping images
  • Add embellishments last.
  • EASY PEASY PEOPLE!

STAMPIN’ UP! ARTIST CREATED THESE CARDS:

Click on the product(s) below for details and shop my online store! There are some items added in the product table that you may prefer i.e. Multi pack of 8.5 x 11 In Color cardstock verses buying a whole pack of one color. You CAN just use the Block D for stamping your images from your stamp set but I included the Stamparatus. You don’t have to have the grid paper but I added it as well for the Stamparatus. The Stamparatus comes with a foam mat but perhaps you’d like to upgrade to the one in the table below. For more information on these items, just click it!

WooHoo! My Blog is Back!

YES! MY BLOG IS BACK! THANK YOU FOR BEING PATIENT!

I took a brief time away from social media and blogging during April. Honestly time got away from me as I did not intend on being absent the entire month. Come May, I updated my monthly Host Code for my blog (see in right panel) and the next morning when I was going to add the new widget for the NEW 2021-2022 Annual Catalog, as it was going LIVE the same day, my site was DOWN and had been until the morning of June 17! I’ve spent since the morning of May 4 going back and forth almost DAILY between my web host and the service that provides my daily backups. I am my own Web Developer, so to speak, as I created my blog through WordPress.org, chose a theme and customized it, created my blog and chose a web host to go LIVE. I’m not a professional Web Developer nor am I extremely proficient with WordPress but I know enough to do what I do, if that makes sense! LOL!

Please be assured at NO TIME was my website infected with malware as it was an internal server issue that caused my problems. Hopefully this matter has been permanently resolved! BTW, my site is a SECURE site! Notice the LOCK in the URL when you visit my blog! Also I’ve been working on my blog to get some links updated, rearranged and added some links as well in the main navigational menu bar! Be sure to check ’em out while you are here today!

FYI: If you look at my blog on a mobile device, it will look the same as if you were on your computer. The interface is the same. That’s called being NON RESPONSIVE on mobile devices. I’ve really not worried about that issue but hopefully at some point in the very near future that will be resolved!

Regarding My Thank You Card

CARD DETAILS

  • Card Base: Basic White Thick | 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ | Scored at 4-1/4″
  • Card stock: I used retired Designer Series Paper | Substitute any Designer Series Paper | 2″ x 5-1/2″
  • Card stock: Solid color to coordinate with DSP | 1/2″ x 5-1/2″
  • Card stock: Solid color to coordinate with DSP for Butterfly die cuts
  • Ink Pad: Memento Tuxedo Black
  • Stamp: Humming Along (Retired) | Numerous stamp sets to choose from in the new Annual Catalog or Jan-Jun Mini Catalog, which ends June 30
  • Dies: Butterfly Wings Dies | Coordinates with Butterfly Brilliance Stamp Set which you can BUNDLE!
  • Embellishments: Rhinestone Basic Jewels
  • Adhere panels to card base using Multipurpose Glue
  • Stamp sentiment image of your choice
  • Die cut butterflies and adhere using adhesive using Multipurpose Glue
  • Add embellishments last.

I may have used beautiful retired DSP for my cards but you can substitute other DSP in its place! A lot of DSP has coordinating prints on the backside that you can use for the bottom strip as I did in the one below . . . and yes, that DSP is retired as well. The strip on the bottom is the back side of the poppies DSP. I love how that turned out! You may be wondering why I’m not using something current for my DSP. These cards were special made for special people so therefore the prints were chosen with them in mind. *SMILE* With that being said, Stampin’ Up! has gorgeous Designer Series Paper that would work using this card layout!

Don’t you just LOVE the BUTTERFLIES on these cards!

BUTTERFLY BRILLIANCE BUNDLE DETAILS

Bundling a stamp set with a coordinating die set or punch will save you 10% on select bundles.

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.
