Stampin Up Cute Animal Outing Card

Throwing in one of the cards we had made at Card Class recently. Its a cute and colorful, thank you card. This set is adorable and there are matching framelits too!

I also used other products from the Animal Outing Suite, like the Animal Expedition designer paper and the Leaf Ribbon.

The Animal Friends coordinating framelits cut the images that appear on the designer paper as well.


The colors I used for this card are granny apple green, balmy blue and whisper white. The designer paper is the Animal Expedition paper, as I mentioned above. The Balmy Blue cardstock is cut at 4 x 3 and the alligators are 4 x 2 1/4". The stip in the middle is 4 x 1/2" attached over the balmy blue.


I punched a circle in the balmy blue with the 2 1/4 circle punch, then popped it up with dimensionals onto the card. The dimensionals also hold the Leaf ribbon in place, behind the card. The leaves were held in place on the front of the card with glue dots.


I colored the frog with the Stampin Blends alcohol markers in old olive and the branch in call me clover and crumb cake. I popped the branch on with mini dimensionals and added some Metallic Pearls and Glitter Dots.


It was a big hit at Card Class. How could you not love the super cute jungle animals? *SEE PRODUCT LIST BELOW

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.


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.


Hope you liked my cute little rhino! There's so many amazing stamps and accesories in the New Stampin Up Catalog, that I am having a ball playing with them all! Can't wait to get my next order!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Until the next time...

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.


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!


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.


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.


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!


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.


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.



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.


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!

Until the next time...

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.


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.


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


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


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."


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

Until the next time...

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.


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!


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.


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.


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.


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.


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!
