Floral Thanks, SIP49


Hi friends! It's Tuesday and time for a new challenge at Stamp Ink Paper. This week it's a theme challenge: Flowers. Sign me up! Making floral cards is my absolute favorite, and I have quite a stash of floral stamp sets to prove it. 


Though I have plenty of floral stamps, I've really been wishing for a few of the gorgeous floral sets from Altenew. This is my newest addition, called Beautiful Day. The images layer up fabulously. Though I have the matching dies, for this card I wanted to stamp all on one layer so I did a bit of masking. I'm pretty pleased with my first attempt!


Products Used:
Stamp Sets: Beautiful Day, Super Script II (Altenew)
Card Stock: Blushing Bride, Basic Black (Stampin Up), Solar White (Neenah)
Ink Pads: Blushing Bride, Primrose Petals, Cherry Cobbler, Pear Pizzazz, Old Olive, Mossy Meadow (Stampin Up), Tuxedo Black (Memento)
Accessories: Sparkling Coral Sequins (Lucy's Cards)

Thanks for stopping by, and please leave a comment! Then, head over to see what the rest of the Design Team has created at Stamp Ink Paper!

Have a terrific Tuesday!

Thank You Teacher, PP296 & SSC127


Hi friends! Today at The Paper Players our sweet and wonderful Laurie is hostess, and she has a fabulous sketch for us. My first thought was that this would be the perfect layout for a shaker card, but I ran out of time to make one. I've been so busy between work and all my projects, including gardening, papercrafting and crocheting. I have too many hobbies! 


Since I was pressed for time I went with a CAS creation using my May Simon Says Stamp card kit. I love the selection of plaid papers. The little apple is so cute too, and perfect for a teacher card. 


This card just happens to work perfectly with today's challenge at Sunday Stamps. I love when that happens! 


Products Used:
Stamp Sets: Happy Days (Simon Says Stamp)
Card Stock: White (Simon Says Stamp)
Patterned Paper: Perfectly Plaid (Lawn Fawn)
Ink Pads: Tuxedo Black (Memento), Cornflower, Lime Green (Hero Arts)

Owl Punch Fridge Magnets, Part One


Hi friends! As I mentioned yesterday, I finally completed a project I have been working on for quite a while. I love the Stampin' Up Owl Builder Punch, and over the years have dressed it up for different occasions and holidays. Over the last few weeks I've made fridge magnets with it, one for each month. I used the Perpetual Birthday Calendar Stamp Set for the month names and some of the backgrounds. 

The actual magnets measure 2 1/2" x 3 1/2", and were purchased at Christmas Tree Shop, two for $1. I didn't photograph the panels inside the frames because of the reflection of the acrylic. Though not on my supply list, a Fine Tip Glue Pen and a good pair of craft tweezers are very helpful in assembling these tiny pieces. I also want to mention that I was inspired by many, many different creations on Pinterest and Splitcoast. Big thanks to those that shared their creations! 

To prevent this from being a ridiculously long post, I'm posting the first six months today and the second six months tomorrow. Enjoy!

Summer Vacation Owl, SIP48


Hi friends! It's Tuesday and time for a new challenge at Stamp Ink Paper. This week it's a color challenge, from me! 


I finally completed a project I have been working on for quite a while, and have been thinking about even longer. Though I'm not a big fan of punch art, I do really like the Stampin' Up Owl Builder Punch, and over the years have dressed it up for different occasions and holidays. I had an idea to make fridge magnets with it, one for each month. I used the Perpetual Birthday Calendar Stamp Set for the month names and some of the backgrounds. 

The actual magnets measure 2 1/2" x 3 1/2", and were purchased at Christmas Tree Shop, two for $1. I didn't photograph the panels inside the frames because of the reflection of the acrylic. I also want to mention that though not on my supply list, a Fine Tip Glue Pen and a good pair of craft tweezers are very helpful in assembling these tiny pieces. By changing out the month to a sentiment, each of these could easily be a fun card. 

So where are the other eleven months, you might ask? You'll have to come back tomorrow! Today is just a teaser :) I'll be posting the first six months tomorrow, and the next six months on Thursday with detailed supply lists for each month.

Products Used:  (All Stampin' Up)
Stamp Sets: Perpetual Birthday Calendar, Happy Hour, Hello Love
Card Stock: Whisper White, Basic Black, Baked Brown Sugar, Pool Party, Calypso Coral
Patterned Paper: Domestic Goddess
Ink Pads: Versamark, Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight
Punches: Owl Builder, Bird Builder, Itty Bitty Shapes

Foxy Wild Thing, PP295


Hi friends! It's Sunday and time for a new challenge at The Paper Players. This week it's a clean and simple challenge from our awesome LeAnne: "Wild Thing". Thanks LeAnne, for getting that song stuck in my head for over a week, lol! Would you like to get it stuck in your head, too? Click here! 


I thought I had lots of critter stamps, but after closer examination I found that quite a few of them were either kitties or birds. I did, however, find this cute little fox from the Charmed stamp set by Mama Elephant, though he doesn't look too ferocious. In case you haven't noticed I'm a bit into purple lately for some reason, and find my stash seriously lacking in purple products! 

Products Used:
Stamp Sets: Charmed (Mama Elephant)
Card Stock: Solar White (Neenah), Wisteria Wonder (Stampin' Up)
Ink Pads: Tuxedo Black (Memento)
Markers: Copic
Tools: Big Shot, Charmed Dies (Mama Elephant)


Another quick pic of my own little ferocious beast Ollie, posed in the same position as the fox :)

Thank for stopping by, and please visit the rest of the Design Team at The Paper Players! We hope you'll play along with our challenge this week, too!

Inky hugs!
