Christmas Fridays in July: Warm Home

#stampinup   #faithfulinkspirations  Sometimes I go to sites like SplitCoastStampers or Pinterest to get inspiration for cards. And sometimes when I sit down to re-create the card I take that inspiration and put my own twist on it. More often than not, I have to put my own twist on a card because I don't have the same supplies the original artist used. When that happens, my card is "inspired by" another artist. Today's card was so perfect that I decided to CASE it--copy and share everything. And even though I used slightly different accessories, my card is more than merely "inspired by"--my card is an homage to this one made by Barbara Becker from Germany.
For my card, I started with a Thick Whisper White Card Stock card base, cut lengthwise. I cut a 4" by 5-1/4" Whisper White Card Stock panel, wrapped a length of Pool Party Shimmer Ribbon around it, and then used Stampin' Dimensionals to adhere it to the card base.

Next, I stamped the three houses from the "Hearts Come Home" stamp set in Crumb Cake and Pool Party Inks onto a 1/8 sheet of Whisper White Card Stock. I added the sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I cut this out with the largest oval from the Stitched Shapes Framelits. I cut a just-larger scalloped oval from Pool Party Card Stock with one of the Layering Ovals Framelits. I adhered this to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals.

I finished the card by adding several adorable Twinkle Adhesive-Backed Sequins. I'm so glad I found Barbara's card to CASE because it's gorgeous!

Grapefruit Love

#stampinup   #faithfulinkspirations   I hope you've been enjoying this week's series of cards made with Stampin' Up's "Detailed with Love" stamp set. And I hope you've liked seeing all five of the 2018-2020 In Colors: Lovely Lipstick, Pineapple Punch, Call Me Clover, Blueberry Bushel, and today's color, Grapefruit Grove.

For this card, we used the "Detailed with Love" stamp set and the coordinating Detailed Trio Punch. These two items come in a bundle (clear mount-item 148328; wood mount-item 148327), which saves you 10% over purchasing them separately. Here's the gorgeous card we made at the Proverbial Stampers & Friends event.
We started by punching the fleur de lis in the top two corners of a 3-3/4" by 5" Whisper White Card Stock  Panel. We adhered a 2" by 4-7/8" piece of Grapefruit Grove Designer Series Paper from the 2018-2020 In Color 6" by 6" DSP pack to the bottom of this piece. Then we stamped a sentiment from the "Detailed with Love" stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink on to the card and filled in the dots with a Grapefruit Grove Stampin' Write Marker.

We adhered this piece to a 3-7/8" by 5-1/8" Grapefruit Grove Card Stock mat. Then we wrapped a length of Whisper White Classic Weave Ribbon around before adhering everything to a Whisper White Card Stock card base.

So, now that you've seen all the 2018--2020 In Colors, which on is your favorite color?

Clover Love

#stampinup   #faithfulinkspirations   Whenever I hold a Stampin' Up workshop or stamp-a-stack or stamp camp or any other event, I design what I think are some cute cards for my guests to make. Most people want to copy the sample card exactly, but there are some who think outside the box. Some of my guests will rotate the card from portrait to landscape. Others are aren't as anal precise as I am in lining up the layers and purposefully adhere the layers so they're askew. And I LOVE that! I love it when someone puts their own creative spin on my design. I always say, "I give you the supplies. You can make whatever you want with them.

Well, I followed my own advice for this card that we made at the Proverbial Stampers & Friends new catalog event. The sample card had the Color Me Clover and Blueberry Bushel flowers lined up in a a nice two-by-three pattern, perfectly spaced. I knew that was going to be "too much tension" to try to do, so I just stamped my flowers randomly. Great idea--I like the random look, but then my piece of Color Me Clover  Designer Series Paper from the 2018-2020 In Color 6" by 6" DSP pack didn't fit. No problem, I cut my piece down to a 1/4" and flagged the end with my Paper Snips. And I had just enough room to stamp the sentiment from the "Detailed with Love" set in Blueberry Bushel Ink.

To finish the card, we adhered the stamped panel (3-3/4" by 5" Whisper White Card Stock) to a 3-7/8" by 5-1/8" Blueberry Bushel Card Stock mat and then onto a Whisper White Card Stock card base. And, finally, we added some Basic Rhinestone Jewels to the flower centers.

I have one more card made with the "Detailed with Love" stamp set that I'll be sharing tomorrow. Come on back to see it. In the meantime, keep reading for Stampin' Up's awesome specials for the month of July!

Pineapple Love

#stampinup   #faithfulinkspirations Goodness! Pineapple Punch is such a bright and fun color. It's one of Stampin' Up's new 2018-2020 In Colors. Today, I've paired it with Basic Black and two other new In Colors for some pop!

This is another card that we made at the Proverbial Stampers & Friends event using the "Detailed with Love" stamp set. We stamped one of the sentiments in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Whisper White Card Stock and cut it out with a Layering Oval Framelit. We cut a just-larger Basic Black scalloped oval with the same set of framelits. We adhered these two elements together with Snail Adhesive and filled in the dots with Blueberry Bushel, Call Me Clover, and Pineapple Punch Stampin' Write Markers.

We embossed a 3-3/4" by 5" Pineapple Punch Card Stock panel with the Polka Dot Basics Embossing Folder and adhered it to a 3-7/8" by 5-1/8" Basic Black Card Stock mat. We wrapped a length of Color Me Clover, Pineapple Punch, and Blueberry Bushel 1/8" Grosgrain Ribbon around this before using Stampin' Dimensionals to adhere it to a Whisper White Card Stock card base.

We adhered the sentiment oval to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals, too. Don't forget to come back tomorrow to see another card made with this great "Detailed with Love" stamp set and the new 2018-2020 In Colors! And keep on reading for Stampin' Up's awesome specials for the month of July!
