Stampin Up Wedding Card with the Cake Soiree stamp set

As you read this post, I am currently at the Stampin Up On Stage (mini convention) Event in Las Vegas, Nevada!

I won't be gone long and I'll be sure to share some fun pictures when I return. Check out my instagram and facebook pages in the meantime. (stampin with kjoyink) for some real time photos of the event.

Today I'm sharing another Cake Soiree stamp set card with matching Sweet Cake dies. This is such a pretty set with beautiful Sweet Soiree designer paper to match.

I matched the colors to the designer paper. I used flirty flamingo and powder pink cardstock as well as silver glimmer paper and a delicate white doily.

IMG_1124

I colored the flowers with a blender pen, dipped in the lids of inkpads. The colors are flirty flamingo, sweet sugarplum and old olive. Can you see the shimmer on the flowers? Its the Wink of Stella brush. I brushed over the flowers with it, once I had them colored.

 I stamped "Best Wishes" in sweet sugarplum ink onto a piece of flirty flamingo cardstock, then punched it out with the Classic Label Punch.

IMG_1118

I added a rich razzleberry Glitter Enamel Dot to the sweet flower topper. I think I use these dots on everything. They are just so pretty!

And there you have it. Another beautiful wedding card (or birthday card) for all those upcoming summer celebrations.

Thanks again for stopping by!

Until the next time...

Stampin Up "In The Trees" stamp set with Watercolor Pencils

This is such a cool stamp set. I love that it has a hammock and cute little pennants and  lights to hang from the trees. It even has a tiny squirrel!

This card was very basic. I simply stamped the images in basic black archival ink, and used Stampin Up Watercolor Pencils and an Aqua-Painter to color them in.

IMG_1183

I used watercolor paper to stamp and color on. The other cardstocks are soft sky and crumb cake.

For the trees, I just randomly colored the entire top of the tree with the old olive and bermuda bay pencils. I kind of just scribbled the colors in. Then I used the aqua painter to wash over the leaves and blend the colors together.

IMG_1184

For the clouds and tree trunk, I outlined the image and washed over it with the aqua painter. The flowers and grass are lightly colored before I used the aqua painter to give them a water colored look.

IMG_1187

I love my embellishments, and here you can see that I've added a few Glitter and Clear Epoxy dots.

The sun is from the "Let the Good Times Roll" roller coaster stamp set. I stamped it in daffodil delight and then used the pumpkin pie watercolor pencil to highlight. I washed over it with my aqua painter as well.

Here's a close up of the sun. I needed to add some "shine" so I used the Wink of Stella brush to make it sparkle.

IMG_1188

I cut out the clouds and popped them on with mini dimensionals.

IMG_1186

I used the Congratulations greeting from the set because I thought it would make a great Gradution card. Especially for a young man. Its a great masculine set as well as any age or gender.

We've never had a stamp set quit like this. I think its pretty awesome. What do you think?

Thanks for taking the time to take a look!

Until the next time...

Stampin' Up Cake Soiree Wedding Card

I'm sharing the gorgeous Cake Soiree stamp set and framelit bundle with you today. I am using this set for my next Card Class and I wanted to play around with it a little.

I came up with this beautiful wedding card. I also designed the card we will make at class, and I will share that next week.

The Sweet Soiree designer paper is simply stunning. The colors are amazing and the paper has outlines of shimmery silver all through it.

IMG_1041

I coordinated the inks and cardstock to match the Sweet Soiree designer paper. The cardstock colors are rich razzleberry and sweet sugarplum as well as whisper white. To color the flower on the cake I used the ink from the inkpads and dipped a blender pen in the ink that I squeezed onto the lid of the inkpad. I colored in the flowers with the blender pen. The leaves were colored with old olive and the flowers are sweet sugarplum and flirty flamingo.

IMG_1040

I added some shimmer to the flowers with the Wink of Stella brush. It really shimmers in the light.

IMG_1045

IMG_1050

Its just so, so pretty in person. All the colors and shimmer are stunning. I left the greeting off of the front of the card and used the wedding wishes for inside. I used pink pirouette cardstock and rich razzleberry as well as old olive ink on the inside.

IMG_1042

Its the perfect Wedding Card.

IMG_1044

Another peek at the inside...

IMG_1046

I'm excited about this set and coordinating framelits as well as the amazing Sweet Soiree designer paper. I just can't stop looking at it!

I added the beautiful berry burst metalic edge ribbon and an ombre Glitter enamel dot for texture and dimension.

IMG_1048

I can't wait for the ladies at Card Class to use this set. I hope they love it as much as I do!

Thanks for visiting.

Until the next time..

Stampin Up "A Good Day" stamp set

Oh this stamp set is so adorable! I also bought the cute little mini embroidery hoops that go with this darling stamp set. Oh my gosh, so stinkin' cute!

So, I made up some cards for my directs on my team. Directs are the people who signed up with Stampin Up directly under me. I love these girls to the moon and back. I wanted to send them a "just because" card with a little surprise inside, and this is the set that I chose to use to make all their cards.

I didn't stop there tho, I had to make more and more cards with this set. The new tiny scallop punches go perfectly with this set as well.

First I will show you the card I made for my team. I used the little bunny from the set, because its so sweet, just like the girls that I sent these cards to. :)

IMG_0881

I used pink pirouette and sweet sugar plum cardstocks as well as whisper white. The sweet sugar plum products as well as all the 2016-2018 In Colors,  will retire in May, so get them now, before they are sold out!

For the background, I used the new "Scattered Sequins" emboss folder in the Occasions Catalog 2018.

IMG_0880

The Mini Embroidery Hoops come in two sizes- this is the smaller of the two. I also used the two new scallop punches to layer under the bunny, as well as a gold foil doily. I added the In Color enamel shapes and the new silver twine for a small bow at the top of the hoop. The shimmery strips are the new Myths and Magic washi tape from the Occasions Catalog.

IMG_0879

Here's a bunch of them, ready to be mailed.

IMG_0886

IMG_E0868

So, after I made those, I made this one...

IMG_0876

I basically used the same supplies, but this one has the larger of the two hoops and the Wood Textures designer paper for the background.

IMG_0874

The bunny is colored with the Stampin Blends alcohol markers in ivory, crumb cake, pink pirouette and rich razzleberry.

I also used the Triple Banner punch to cut the tails on the sweet sugar plum banners.

IMG_0877

I attached the bow with a glue dot and the hoops were attached with Multi purpose liquid glue. Glue dots could be used to attach the hoop as well.

IMG_0873

I love how they turned out. This would even make a sweet Easter Card too!

Wait until you see the other cards I made with this set- I will be featuring them this week. They are even cuter- if that's possible!

Thanks for stopping by today.

Until the next time...

Stampin' Up Barn Door Stamps and Dies

I have some fun cards to share with you today, made with the new Stampin' Up Barn Door Bundle.

Its such a fun set to play with. I've created 3 different designs and one of them we will make at Card Class this week. Yay!

The first card is also made with the " This Little Piggy" stamp set. I thought it would be fun to put the piggy in the barn. It works perfectly with this set. I will post a Stampin' Up video below, showing just how to make a barn door card with the Barn Door Bundle. So scroll to the bottom of this post to see it.

The cardstock that I used is whisper white and basic black and also the Woodgrain Designer Series paper. The inks are smoky slate, crumb cake, pink pirouette, and the memento black pad.

IMG_0714

I colored in the pig with the Stampin' Blends alcohol markers. I used both the smoky slate and pink pirouette sets of markers.

If you watch the video below, you will also get a list of the "behind the scenes" items that were used to put this card together. I will also post the supply list below.

IMG_0715

I used the Stampin Write water based markers to color directly on the wreath stamp in crumb cake, pink pirouette and basic black.

How cool is this? The door slides back and forth to reveal the message. The whisper white piece that has the pig/message stamped on it is 41/4" x 2 1/2". The card base is 5 1/2 x 4 1/4.  The door is cut out with a framelit from the barn door set.

IMG_0716

IMG_0719

This is the card that we will be making at Card Class this week:

IMG_0710

I hope the card class girls like it!

IMG_0709

The colors are whisper white, crumb cake and basic black- same for the inks as well as cherry cobbler. I also used the Hardwood Background stamp for the card base. Same measurements as above.

IMG_0713

I colored the wreath, the same way as above... using the early espresso and cherry cobbler Stampin' Write markers.

IMG_0707

IMG_0712

It's so fun to slide the door back and forth!

IMG_0708

Here are both cards:

IMG_0720

And slide...

IMG_0721

One last quick card that I made while I had extra pieces to use up...

IMG_E0802

The inks on the sign, greeting and flowers are dapper denim, calyso coral and marina mist.

Simple Mermaid Card using Magical Day

I love, love, love the new Myths and Magic designer paper. Its so sparkly, colorful and magical!

I put together a quick card using the mermaid paper and the Magical Day stamp set. Who can resist a beautiful mermaid card?

IMG_E0296

The mermaid in the circle was stamped with the black memento ink pad and colored with the Stampin' Blends alcohol markers. I used the pool party and bermuda bay markers as well as the ivory, pumpkin pie and daffordil delight colors.

To pick up on the sparkle from the Myths and Magic designer paper, I added a strip of the new Myths and Magic glimmer paper in bermuda bay.

IMG_0297

Can you see the sparkle on the mermaids? I also added a few Glitter dots in pink, blue and green, randomly on the bubbles of the paper. Can you spot them?

IMG_E0298

A small knotted lemon lime twist ribbon is attached with a glue dot, beneath the little mermaid.

IMG_E0296

This was one of the cards we made at Card Class. I hope you liked it. :)
