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.

Here is the sketch:

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!

Stampin’ Up! Fresh Floral Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

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! Blooms and Wishes Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hi Stampers, Today I decided to use the Blooms and Wishes stamp set.  This is a carry over from the 2016-2017 catalog.  Even though the stamp set is an old one, it is new to me!  I just received this set a few weeks ago and was excited to create with it.  I am placing my order for all my new products this week and then I will start sharing them with you.  Today we had a color challenge of Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive and Pool Party.    I was not sure about the color combo and to my surprise I really like it.  (I did add a touch of yellow, I just couldn’t help myself.  LOL)

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.

Here is another card.  It is exactly the same except for the sentiment. I made over half a dozen different sentiment designs and just could not settle on just one.  For the blog I decided to keep it simple because the paper is so busy. The card below is one of the other designs. Which one do you like best? Simple or more detailed?
