Creative Inking Blog Hop: Easter Fun with Sale-a-bration Coordination

Blog Hop Title

Welcome to our blog hop! I'm excited to share my cute Easter project with you that uses the Sale-a-bration Coordination stamp set "More Than Words". This is a limited edition stamp set and is ONLY available this month or while supplies last!

Easter Chick Sweet Cup with More Than Words - 4

Yay - so cute!  This Chubby Chick decorates a Sweet Cup full of sweets! Now you might be wondering - where is the stamp set?!  Well...

...the stamp set is inside the lid with a fun Easter message!

More Than Words

The "More Than Words" stamp set is SO versatile!!  The two step "Wishes" stamp can be paired with Easter, New Year's, Christmas, or Birthday and the other greetings coordinate with other Sale-a-bration stamp sets!

I really love the "two tone" option on the Wishes image.  Here is how I lined up the two images perfectly:

More Than Words Two Step - 1

First I stamped the Wishes "lower half" stamp in the Mango Melody ink - which is the darker of the two inks I am using.More Than Words Two Step - 1

Then I inked up the image that says "Wishes" in Daffodil Delight ink.  Because the Mango ink is darker then the Daffodil ink that is on my stamp, I am able to see through the stamp and can perfectly line up with the first stamped image.

Here is a close up showing how well they match up.
More Than Words Two Step - 1

And here is what the finished image looks like.  With the two separate stamps you can create a really fun ombre look with very little effort - love it!

The chick on the lid of my Sweet Cup is super easy!

I used the largest smooth sided Layering Circle framelit die for the body, the "wings" are made with one of the narrow layering hearts in the Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies, and the feet and hair tuft are made with the Bitty Blooms Punch Pack.

For the beak I scored a small rectangle of Pumpkin Pie cardstock and folded it in half.  Then I just used scissors to trim off each side to form the beak shape.  The eyes are the Basic Pearls colored black with the Dark Basic Black Stampin' Blend marker.

I wrapped the sweet cup in Designer Series Paper - this one is the 6" x 6" Gingham Gala paper and the other version uses the Polka Dot Pineapple Punch pattern from the In Color 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper 2018-2020 in the main catalog. To use the 6" by 6" paper I cut it in half so that I had two pieces that were 3" x 6".  Then I adhered them together with Tear & Tape.

Creative Inking Blog Hop: Celebrating Sale-a-bration!

Blog Hop Title

I'm so excited today to share this gorgeous new embossing folder with an easy but special technique to make it double gorgeous!!! And the best part?!  This stunning embossing folder is a new FREE Sale-a-bration option while supplies last!!  These are going to go FAST though so don't wait and miss the boat!

Country Floral Dear Doily Ink the Embossing Folder - 9

Super in Soft Sea Foam....

...and pretty in Petal Pink! This is the new Country Floral Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder!

Country Floral Dear Doily Ink the Embossing Folder - 9

To get this look take any embossing folder, open it up, and ink up the side with the Stampin' Up! logo just like it is a really big stamp! If you are using a newer style foam pad, don't swipe it on, just tap it on like you would on a stamp image.

I also discovered a fun new partnership with the Dear Doily stamp set and the Pretty Label Punch!

Stamp the larger doily on a piece of cardstock.

Don't worry that it hangs over.

Then slide in the Pretty Label punch for a perfect match!

On the Petal Pink version I added one of the small doily dies from the Doily Builder Thinlits Dies.

I also added one of the Doily Builder dies on the inside of the card!  The Dear Doily stamp set and the Doily Builder Thinlits Dies are available as a bundle for 10% savings!

I kept the Soft Sea Foam card a bit simpler - no extra die cuts.  I just love this soft color!!

Both cards use the beautiful Basic Adhesive Backed Sequins from the regular catalog.  The adhesive backed sequins are now my favorite "go to" to add pizazz to a card!  Thanks for joining me!  Time to hop along....

Creative Inking Blog Hop: Sharing The Love

Blog Hop Title

I have a pretty-in-Petal-Pink Valentine (or wedding, or anniversary, or other "love" related theme) card to share with you today on our Sharing The Love themed Blog Hop!

Beautifully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper Meant To Be Rectangle Framelits - 6 (1)

I paired the Beautifully Detailed Laser-cut Specialty Paper with the Rectangle Framelits and the Meant To Be Bundle to create today's project.

Beautifully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper Meant To Be Rectangle Framelits - 4 (1)

When you order the Beautifully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper you get 8 12" x 12" sheets, 4 of each pattern.  This sheet is designed with 6 panels, 1 long border, and 4 narrow borders.  You just cut them apart to use on your projects!

Here is another card with the same layout, different panel (this was the panel with the oval).  

Beautifully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper Meant To Be Rectangle Framelits - 4 (1)

You also get 4 12" x 12" sheets with this pattern - so gorgeous!  You can cut this one apart and use it the same way or cut out individual scrolls to embellish your card.

Beautifully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper Meant To Be Rectangle Framelits - 4 (1)

I placed one of the awesome new Rectangle Stitched Dies on a piece of Basic Black cardstock cut 4" x 5 1/4" and cut out a frame with the Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine.

Beautifully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper Meant To Be Rectangle Framelits - 4 (1)

These great framelits not only stitch the inside piece but also cut stitching on the outside piece, which is the one I needed for this project.

I placed my Laser-Cut paper on the back of the frame (pink side down) and attached it with Dimensionals.  As you can see, the back of the paper is white in case you prefer that over the Petal Pink side.

Next I layered another piece of Basic Black cardstock behind my "frame". And I was all set to add my embellishments!

Here is a peek at the inside of the card - I used the leftover scrap of Petal Pink from cutting out the heart for a frame on the inside of the card.

Beautifully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper Meant To Be Rectangle Framelits - 4 (1)

The heart image is from the beautiful stamp set Meant To Be.  I stamped it in VersaMark Ink and then embossed it with Black Stampin' Emboss Powder and melted the powder with the Heat Tool. I used the coordinating framelit to cut out the heart and it also cuts out a "bonus" scalloped heart frame!  I used two glue dots, folded in half at the top and bottom of the heart frame to attach it to the card.  I popped the heart image up on Dimensionals.  The finishing touch was one of the Faceted Dots in black.  Scroll down to the bottom of this page for the full list of supplies.

Sweet Cups Valentine Panda Bear

Panda Bear Sweet Cup Valentine Treat Holder - 5

I had so much fun creating this cute Panda Bear with the Stampin' Up!® Sweet Cups and a few punches and dies! I have a short video below with the assembly details!

Panda Bear Sweet Cup Valentine Treat Holder - 5

These cute cups hold a LOT of candy!  I filled mine with paper shreddie to help fill the space.  The Sweet Cups are in the new Occasions Catalogs and can be simply decorated with designer paper as well.  You get 10 food safe cups in the package and they are reminiscent of take out soup containers.

Sweet Cups Panda Inside Lid
I also decorated the inside of the lid with a sentiment from the Meant to Be stamp set.

Panda Bear Sweet Cup Valentine Treat Holder - 5

In this close up of the face you can see I used 1", 3/4", and 1/2" circle punches to "build" the face and ears.  The nose is the heart from the new Dog Builder Punch.

Panda Bear Sweet Cup Valentine Treat Holder - 5
The lower portion of the cup (the Panda body) was were the Big Shot machine came in.  I used my Layering Ovals Dies for the arms and legs and the Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies for the sweet little heart. The heart is cut from the Lovely Lipstick Foil Sheets which are FREE with a $50 order right now as part of the Sale-a-bration event!

 

Here is the step by step video that I did as a Facebook Live on my Facebook Page.

I wonder what other cute critters you could make from these cups?!  A bunny, chick, dog..... the possibilities are endless!

Destructed Panda - 2

Speaking of dogs, my pups really seemed to enjoy this project - as you can see from this photo with the remnants of my original sample! 

Naughty Puppies - 2

This little gal was the counter surfer who swiped the project and then had a ball shredding it!

This guy was all about the candy - fortunately I was able to recover it (from his kennel where he was guarding it!) before he ate any.
