Stampin Up Animal Outing Stamp set.

What an exciting day! The NEW Stamping Up Annual Catalog 2018-2019 went LIVE today! I placed my first party order today as well as my own tiny little order. Just kidding.. it wasn't tiny AT ALL! lol

So anyway, I made this darling card yesterday and wanted to share it with you today. I think this stamp set is adorable! Its called Animal Outing. It also has coordinating framelits, but I don't have them yet..I did however, use the new Stitched Labels Framelits for one of the cool circle cut outs and the cute little heart on this card. Isn't this rhino ever so cute? And how about that little froggie?

I used the Stampin Blends to color in the rhino as well as all of the other images.

The designer paper is from the Share What You Love paper pack. I used Mossy Meadow, Pear Pizazz, Powder Pink, Whisper White and Watercolor Papers as well. The buttons are from the True Gentleman button pack which I attached with glue dots and I added some Linen Thread for some texture.

IMG_2701

I stamped a few branches inside the card too. The Stampin Blends colors that I used were the smoky slate pairs, old olive pairs, bermuda bay pairs, pumpkin pie and crumb cake pairs. I used an aqua painter dipped in the lid of the balmy blue ink to fill in the "sky."

I attached the greeting with dimensionals and the black ink is the Memento Tuxedo black pad.

Card Class and Company

Here's a little peek into my Card Class last week. We always have such fun when we get together and stamp the night away.

Deb, Liz and Sue- a few of the Card Class masters! They always are smiling and happy and make class so much fun.

IMG_E2296

This is the card Deb is holding. We used the Flying Home stamp set and the Stampin Blends to color it in. Be sure to get this set before it retires on May 31st!

IMG_2238

I used the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits for the vine and the Stitched Shapes framelits for the oval on this card. The Classic Label punch was used for the greeting. Old olive, whisper white and chocolate chip are the cardstock colors used. The Pinewood Planks emboss folder was used on the chocolate chip base.

IMG_E2241

To color the birds, I first used the pool party dark Stampin Blend alcohol marker all over, then shaded with the night of navy light marker. The nest is crumb cake dark and light and the leaves are old olive dark and light. A Glitter enamel dot add a bit of dimension to this cute little birdie card.

IMG_2240

Heather and Mackenzie are a great mother/daughter team. Aren't they just the cutest? It was Mackenzies first time attending card class and she stamped like a pro!

IMG_E2295

We also made some masculine cards as a nod to Fathers Day, coming soon. The Truly Tailored stamp set and coordinating Tailored Tag punch were perfect for these masculine themed cards.

IMG_2427

I love the True Gentleman designer paper. Its definitely very manly and cool. I used a True Gentleman button on the card below- just for fun.

IMG_2421

IMG_2425

The ink color is Tranquil Tide and the cardstock for this card is very vanilla. Two strips of the Night of Navy Corduroy ribbon were attached under the greeting.

IMG_2426

How cool is this card? Love the glasses and the greeting- looks pretty sharp, don't you think?

Raelene and Lorie are showing off their Brusho cards. I'll post details on these cards next time.

Hope you enjoyed a peek into my Card Class today. Thanks for visiting!

Share What You Love- Sweet and Simple

Time for another card made with this months pre order special bundle. The Share What You Love bundle is one that will provide many, many beautiful card making and scrapbooking opportunities.

For this card, I wanted to show how a simple card looks so elegant with just some Share What You Love designer paper and one color of ink and cardstock. I used the powder pink and very vanilla cardstock with gorgeous designer paper.

IMG_2226

I love the simplicity and soft subtle colors of this card. I colored the flowers by dipping a blender pen in a few drops of powder pink re-inker.

IMG_2222

I punched the powder pink circle with the 2 1/4" punch and the vanilla circle with the 2" circle punch.

IMG_2223

The designer paper has a pearlized shimmer to it. So pretty in the light.

IMG_2224

I used dimensionals to attach the circle and the new Alphabet set Make a Difference, (included in the Share What You Love, Gotta Have it All bundle) for the word "hi."

IMG_2225

I'll have more to share tomorrow. Come back and see!

Watercoloring : In The Trees stamp set

I have another In The Trees card to share with you today. I love using the watercolor pencils and aqua painters with this set. Especially on the trees. I used both the old olive and bermuda bay pencils to lightly color randomly to fill in the leaves. Then used the aqua painter to swoosh and blend it altogether.

IMG_1174

Naturally, I used the watercolor paper for this. It holds up to the aqua painter really well and I love the texture it brings to my projects.

I sprinkled a few Glitter epoxy shapes around the sky and background. I love these things, why do they have to be retiring? Got to stock up, before they sell out!

IMG_1175

I embossed the soft sky background with the Simply Stripes emboss folder. Kind of looks like ship lap, right? The other cardstock colors are whisper white and dapper denim.

IMG_1174

We made this at card class last week too. It was an easy coloring project for the ladies.

I hope you like it!

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.

IMG_1116

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.

IMG_1119

 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!

IMG_1123

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!
