Thank You Card with Expressions in Ink Suite

Blog Hop KB

Have you checked out the beautiful Expressions in Ink Suite from the new Annual Catalog? Oh my gosh this is a beautiful suite that helps you make the most artistic cards with ease. 

The stamp images give you the watercolor look that feels like you put layers of ink, but is just how the image comes when stamping.  So it is super easy to use and to play with. 

But before we start, please know that this post is part of an amazing blog hop, where fellow demonstrators around the world will feature thank you cards!

So make sure you hop around with us as you will get lots of great ideas and inspirations for your next crafting project!

Let’s get started!

Expressions in Ink Suite 

Below you can see the products in this suite. The designer series paper in this suite is just amazing! It has beautiful backgrounds of a alcohol ink patterns with hints of gold foil. There are other patterns with flowers and details in gold foil as well that pop up nicely in the sheets.

The bundle included in the Expressions in Ink Suite is called Artistically Inked, which like I mentioned before, helps you create beautiful flowers and backgrounds that look artistic.  

Not to mention the sentiments in the stamp set are great for multiple occasions, so this is one of those sets that I am sure you can use for lots of cards. 

Easy Thank You Card

As mentioned above this suite helps you make really artistic cards in an easy way.  You can see on my card below that the layout is simple but the paper makes the work.. 

I just added a flower stamped in Pale Papaya and the leaves in Pear Pizzas. I added also a few of the element from the Expressions in Ink Ephemera pack to bring the gold foil of the paper. 

To finish off the card I added a few gilded gems and that was it!

Color Combination

As far as the color combination, I just used the colors from the designer series paper (DSP). I selected the sheets I wanted to use and called the colors from those pieces. 

That always helps me get color combination in an easy way.  

Not to mention that when you use Stampin’ Up! products everything color coordinate. The DSP, the embellishments, the inks, the cardstock, everything! Making it is super easy to make your cards.  Believe me! Give it a try and you will see!

Art in Bloom Bundle card ideas

blog hop banner

Have you checked out the new Art in Bloom Bundle from Stampin’ Up? If you haven’t then keep reading as today I will share with you an easy card that you can make using this amazing bundle. 

But before we start, please know that this post is part of a blog hop that is showcasing pressing embossing or dry embossing cards, and this means that you will get lots of ideas when you hop along with us.

So let’s get started! 

Art in Bloom Bundle 

When I found out about the theme of our blog hop, I immediately thought about the “Art in Bloom” Bundle as it has a unique feature.  Not only does the stamp set has a coordinating die set, but it also has a coordinating 3D embossing folder!  You can see below all the products included in this special bundle. 

One thing to note is that the 3D embossing folder comes with the die set, so you don’t have to get it separately. And you save 10% when you purchase the stamp set and the die set together.. so you get all three items in the bundle (Item 158368) 

Check in more details the items included in the Art in Bloom bundle from Stampin Up!

This bundle helps you cut out the images and give them dimension so when you use all these products together, you get an instant WOW factor in your cards.

Another thing to mention is that the die set has pairs of the leaf dies which makes it even faster to cut out the images as you can cut two at a time, which is what I typically use per flower. 

Plus it has two label/banner dies that you can use for your sentiments.. Like I said this die set is just great for so many cards.. 

Below you can see the cards I am featuring with this bundle.

This type of bundle is kind of new with Stampin’ Up!, we started with the “Sand and Sea” Suite collection, where the “Friends are like Seashells bundle” coordinated with the Seashells 3D embossing folder. I know this has been very popular in the crafting community as it keeps getting on backorder every single time.. And it really is that you can make easy embellishments for your cards in an easy way. Not to mention the level of coordination in your projects is even higher. 

If you are curious and want to see the projects using the Sand & Sea Suite you can go to this post.. 

Color Combination 

Because I wanted to feature the flowers in this bundle using the 2021-2023 in colors, I decided to use the Polished Pink.

I went for an easy color combo for my cards as the leaves would go in green, in this case in Old Olive, and the background would be in white and black! 

This color combo is one of my go to color combos for Polished Pink or with Pinks for that matter, as the cards always turn out really cute. As a prove you can see this post using the very same color combo, or this other post but now with the now-retired Rococo Rose. 

I am telling you, this color combo works every single time 😉

Friendship Card Details 

Learn how to make easy cards when using the Art in Bloom bundle.For these cards, I stamped the flowers in colored cardstock and only did some highlights using the stamping blends 

Because I was making multiple of this card, this helped me speed up the process. 

You could however stamp the image in Basic White Cardstock and color it with either the blends or watercolor pencils or any other coloring technique. 

Then I went ahead and did exactly the same for the leaves. I used Old Olive cardstock and then added highlights with the blends. 

And then I cut all the images with the die set. For the flowers then I lined them up to the embossing folder and run them try the cut & emboss machine, which added the texture. You can see a bit of this on the picture in the left. 

To finish off the flower I added a large gem from the Gilded Gems. I love doing this as it always makes the flowers pop.. and you can use any type of gem you have. If you have smaller gems, then you can add three of them in the center and these would look equally nice. 

And for the background I used the images of the stamp set and created an easy pattern using the Stamparatus. You can watch the video tutorial below to see step by step instructions as well as the measurements. 

The Video Tutorial 

As mentioned, here is the video tutorial for you to see exactly how this card is put together step by step. I also share some tips to help you line up the flowers to the embossing folder so you have a better impression and I provided some tips on how to use the stamparatus to stamp the pattern in the background of the card. 

As mentioned, I was making several of these cards, so using the stamparatus helped me a lot in getting them done faster. 

Below I have included the complete supply list so that if you want to get any of the items I am using you can click on the images to take you to my online store where you can purchase any of these items! As always I truly appreciate your support!

Beautiful Birthday Cards using the Sand & Sea Bundle

Blog Hop Banner - Share it Sunday

Looking for beautiful Birthday card ideas to make? If so, today I am sharing with you birthday cards using the Sand & Sea Suite from Stampin’ Up! 

But before we start, let me tell you that this post is part of an amazing blog post! so make sure you check all the participating blogs as you will get tons of ideas and inspiration for your next crafting project!

So let’s get started! 

Introducing the Sand & Sea Suite Collection 

As you can see the Sand & Sea Suite Collection is beautiful by itself. It has a beautiful stamp set with great sentiments that can go for multiple occasions. 

But what stands out even more is that the stamp set, the die cutting and the embossing folder coordinates beautifully. I think that Stampin’ Up! did amazing with the coordination of this whole suite as everything mesh really well. 

I love that you not only can die cut the stamped images, but you can also give them dimension.  And this feature will really change your cards from a normal card to a WOW card! believe me.. You got to try it out and see for yourself how beautiful these get.

Meet the Sand & Sea Suite Collection

 

This suite also contains cute little stickers which coordinate really nice with the designer series paper, so if you are looking for a quick project this would go really fast and still make a super cute card. 

The designer series paper (DSP) has amazing patterns. One side is more of a generic pattern that not only is good for beach related cards, but other themes as wells. And the other side has a cute pattern that definitely goes well with beach theme related cards.  So if you ask me this is a DSP that you want to get, and stock on, as it goes really well with this whole suite!  

And finally, the Opal rounds are just the perfect little embellishment to compliment your cards! These look like little sea bubbles (is that even a thing? or did I just made it up? ha! 🤣), so they finish up your cards so beautifully.

Quick Reminder

One thing I am forgetting to tell is that this whole collection is part of the Jan-June Mini Catalog. Which means that some of these products will for sure retire by end the of June..

The good new is that the “Friends are like Seashells” Bundle (stamp + die set), and the Seashells 3D embossing folder made it to the new Annual Catalog as well as the Opal rounds. However, the DSP and the Stickers did not! So these will be on a while supplies last during June.. 

So don’t delay, if you like these items get them right away! 

Beautiful Birthday Cards

As I mentioned the stamp set has amazing sentiments for several occasions, however since I wanted to make three beautiful birthday cards for my friends, I only used the Birthday sentiments. 

Below you can see the Birthday Cards. What do you think? Do you like them? 

Beautiful Birthday cards using the Sand & Sea Bundle from Stampin' Up!

I definitely love how they turned out!  And when you see how easy these are to make, you will love them even more!  So make sure to watch the video tutorial below to catch all the tips on how to put these cards together. 

But lets talk a bit about the details in these Beautiful Birthday Cards. 

Color Combination 

As usual, I followed the color combination on the DSP to give me inspiration for the color combo to use in these cards. 

This is the simplest way to get ideas, specially if you ever think that you cannot come up with color combinations! What I love even more about this, is that I get to use color combinations that I might have never thought of! 

So give it a try! I promise you’ll surprise yourself in a good way! 

Once you select the color combo, then just pool everything you have in those colors like Cardstock, ink, markers, embellishments, etc. You will then start playing with only those things and see what you want to use for your cards.  This always helps me get my creative mojo going.. 

And I honestly find this part really relaxing. 

Birthday Cards Details  

On this section I have a just a few details to share.. But you can watch the video tutorial to see the step by step on how to make these cards. I go over all the details as well as provide measurements, So make sure you watch it.

                    Beautiful Birthday cards using the Sand & Sea Bundle from Stampin' Up!            Beautiful Birthday cards using the Sand & Sea Bundle from Stampin' Up!

For my first card, I used seashells that were stamped in the colors from the color combo, and embossed using the coordinated products in the Sand & Sea suite collection.

One thing to note is that the die set in this suite is a bit different, I use it to cut the algae, but did not use it to cut the stamped images. The images are all connected in the die set but not in the stamp set, so in my case I thought it was easier to cut the images with scissors. You can see in the video tutorial more about this.

This second card, is very similar in the layout to the first card, however I used vellum, as well as the sentiment change, plus I embellish it with trim.. Little details link this can make your card look so much different.

And for this final card, I decided to play with a new Fun Fold! This is the first card I made using this Fun Fold, and I love it.. it looks more complex that what it is, but it is actually super easy! 

So make sure you watch the video tutorial to see exactly how to do this fun fold.. I know you will love it! 

Additional Information

Beautiful Birthday cards using the Sand & Sea Bundle from Stampin' Up!   One thing you are going to notice is that I decorated all the envelopes in of my cards. 

I almost never do this, as I love mailing my cards with the clear envelopes, so that everyone can see the card itself as it travels to its final destination.  However, for this time, I thought the cards were over the top and decided that these needed a special package, and so I decorated the envelopes to coordinate with these cards.

This though, IS NOT Shown in my video tutorial below, but in my Facebook group – https://www.facebook.com/groups/CreatingwithAllie

If you want to learn how to cover the flap on your card or the masking technique that I used to stamp the seashells in the envelopes, you can watch the tutorial here.  The link will not work unless you are part of my FB group.  So ask to join and I will happily add you.. It is open to anyone who loves making cards and sharing them with others.

NEW 2021-2023 In Color family from Stampin’ Up!

blog hop banner

Have you seen the brand NEW 2021-2023 In Color Family from Stampin’ Up? If not then make sure you hop with us along this blog hop as we share with you ideas and inspiration using these new colors. 

All participating blogs will be showcasing projects using the colors from the 2021-2023 In Color family. These projects could use only one color, or multiple colors from the new color family or even combined with other color families. So I know you will get lots of color combinations, not to mention ideas for your next crafting project!   

I am sure you will love them all! So let’s get started!

What is the In Color Family 

Let’s start with a brief explanation of what these colors are and how these come into our crafting world.

Every year Stampin’ Up! releases 5 new colors that will remain active for 2 years. Typically these colors are trending and these are added to compliment our regular color families. 

After the 2 year period, these colors are retired. So every year, with the release of a New Annual Catalog, we have an In Color family retiring with a new one being released!

You can imagine this is always a bitter sweet moment, as we say good bye to some of our favorite colors, but at the same time it is exciting as we get to see brand new colors. 

For me personally, I was super sad to see Purple Posy go from the 2019-2021 In Color Family..

As you know I love purples! and having this shade of purple was amazing, as it was soft, light and it coordinated really well with the Highland Heather as well as the Gorgeous Grape. Not to mention it went really nice with Soft Sea Foam and other colors as well!

However, as you will see from the chart of the new In Color family, there is again a Purple shade!

And I am super excited to be honest, as Purple is not a color that tends to go into the In Color family that frequently..  Shocking right? I mean purple is the BEST color ever!! LOL .. A new shade of Purple should be included in every new In Color family that gets released. Right? 🤣🤣🤣

Believe me, I have made my suggestions to Stampin’ Up! over the years and I guess this time they heard me LOL.. 😁

So without further ado, meet the NEW 2021-2023 In Color Family!! You can see the chart below with all the new colors!

Introducing the 202-2023 In Color Family 

 

2021-2023 In Color chart from Stampin' Up!

Don’t you agree, that this year Stampin’ Up! did amazing? Seriously!

All colors are just perfect and I can see how well these will coordinate with our other families. Don’t you think? 

The Polished Pink is a great shade of Pink, lighter than the Melon Mambo and goes really well with black and White! I’ve made several cards using this color combo and Oh my! it is just gorgeous!  See these Birthday Cards here if you don’t believe me! 

The Fresh Freesia is just beautiful! This shade of Purple goes well with the Blackberry Bliss as well as the Gorgeous Grape and the Highland Heather. 

Our new Pale Papaya, has grown on me already. It is like a light orange that will go really well with our subtle color family. I have made so many cards with this color, that I cannot even believe it!  As I am not a orange type of gal. ha!

And both of the new shades of green – Soft Succulent and the Evening Evergreen are just amazing!! We truly don’t have similar shades of green in our existing color families! So I know these will come really perfect! 

Green is one of the colors that goes so well with lots of colors, as you can use them for greenery, foliage and the like and so you can add any flower in any color making it look so good.. So I am super excited to have two more shaded of green. 

And I think the Evening Evergreen will be super handy for when we start making Christmas cards… This would be an awesome shade for the hollies, or pine trees. Mark my words, my friend!  😉

Color Coordination

One of the things that make Stampin’ Up! so especial is the fact that they color coordinate all their products! And this makes card making so much easier. Mainly, because you will not be wasting time trying to figure out it something works well with the project you have in mind. 

For instance, you can just pick a color combo and then pull out all the supplies in those colors. Cardstock, ribbon, gems, designer series paper, ink, markers, etc.  And then it is just matter of you playing with these items and make your cards.. Rather than seeing if that green ribbon goes with the green pattern paper that you have at home.. Only to find out that they didn’t when you put them together.. 

So below you can see exacltly, what I mean… 

Introducing the brand new 2021-2023 In Color family from Stampin' Up!

You can see how well the cardstock, the ribbon, the ink and the markers are all color coordinated. So when it is time to work in a paper crafting project, I know everything will color coordinate beautifully. 

And you will see this on my card today! 

Meet the Soft Succulent!

Because I wanted you to see how well the products color coordinate, I decided to go with only one of the In Colors for my card and just mix it with the basic white.  So my card is  “Semi-Monochromatic”, ha!

Showcasing an easy card using the brand new Soft Succulent in color using the Simply Succulents Bundle from Stampin' Up!

The card base is in Soft Succulent, but to add a bit of interest, I added two layers. This was because I wanted to use texture to my card, so I dry embossed a piece of Soft Succulent, using the new Bark embossing folder.  And then matted this piece with Basic White, but this mat was only 1/8″ larger to only see a teeny tiny border.  It made this layer pop up even more.. Don’t you think? 

The gingham pattern, came from the Pansy Petals designer series paper (DSP).  This paper pack actually features all the new colors in the In Color Family, so you might want to check it out! (below in the supply list you can see it)

The scallop rectangle is coming from the die set from the Color & Contour bundle. This is a must have my friend.  Not only the die set is perfect for decorative labels, but the stamp set is just perfect and easy to use with multiple coloring techniques. Not to mention that sentiments in this set are amazing. You can see a card sample using this bundle here, which by the way features the Pale Papaya from the new 2021-2023 In Color Family. 

I used the Simply Succulent Bundle, as I knew it would go perfect with the color I wanted to showcased. I embossed the succulent image with white embossing powder on Soft Succulent cardstock. And to finish off this piece I used the Soft Succulent stampin’ blend to add some highlights to the leaves. 

The sentiment came from the same stamp set and I die cutting using the die set from the bundle. And as you can see I used the Soft Succulent ink pad to stamp this image. 

And to finish off this card, I added the bow in the Soft Succulent Open Weave Ribbon! 

I am telling you, everything coordinated perfectly! And this is why I love using Stampin’ Up! Products!

Color & Contour Bundle from Stampin’ Up!

As mentioned at the beginning today project features the Color & Contour Bundle. This bundle is a brand new one in the new catalog.

As you can see below the stamp set has line images as well as bold images add color to the line images.  I definitely love this about this set as it gives lots of alternatives for techniques.  For instance today I will be coloring the images with alcohol markers, but you can choose to do water coloring as well .

Color & Contour Bundle

The other thing I want you to notice is the gorgeous coordinating die set! this is amazing to create labels! You know I love labels as these always helps me when following sketches! so I am excited to see these dies. 

Every single rectangle in this set, has a different embellishing mark, like dots or stitch marks or little holes.. They all look really nice. 

Plus this die set has as well a border die that will surely be a hit in cardmaking! 

All in all, I love this bundle! 

Easy Fun Fold

But as I was mentioning at the beginning, today I wanted to share an easy fun fold with you. See below how this one looks. 

Learn how to make an easy fun fold with the Color & Contour Bundle from Stampin' Up!

Below you can see the video tutorial so you can see step by step how to make this one.. the base on this card is a long card base of 4 1/4″ x 11″ and then cut a 3 1/4″ from one end.  You would need to score at 5 1/2′ and then from the 3 1/4″ left over piece, you can trim it to 2 1/4″.  These would be the pieces you need for the base, as well as a rectangle die cut from the bundle. 

The rest is just embellishing it. So make sure you watch the video tutorial to follow along how to make it. 

As far as the flower, I decided to color using the stampin’ blends a.k.a. alcohol markers.  And for the Designer Series Paper (DSP) I used a sheet from the Pansy Petals DSP. 

I wanted to feature one of the new in colors – Pale Papaya, and this DSP has a nice gingham patter with several of the in colors, so I knew it would be perfect. 

And for embellishments I used the open weave ribbon in Pale Papaya. 

As you can see everything looks so well coordinated. This is so easy, when you use Stampin’ Up! products as everything color coordinate beautifully, making your card making very easy when it comes to color.

Easy card with the Hand-Penned Suite from Stampin’ Up!

blog hop banner

Today I am going to share an easy card using the Hand-Penned Suite from Stampin’ Up!

If you haven’t hear yet, we have a brand new catalog and with that lots of brand new products! So it is a really excited time for us in the Stampin’ Up! world as we get to play with new suites. 

And with that being said, make sure you hop with us, as today’s blog hop is all about the brand new catalog, so I am sure you will see lots and lots of ideas with all the new products. 

So lets get started!

Meet the Hand-Penned Suite from Stampin’ Up! 

One of my favorite suites is the Hand-Penned Suite that Stampin’ Up! just released on May 4th.

Below you can see a picture of this gorgeous suite! 

Hand-Penned Suite from Stampin Up!

What I love the most of this suite is that the designer series paper (DSP) has lots of color combinations, so you can just pick whichever pattern you like and then take the color combo from there!!

The Hand-Penned Petals Stamp set is also a great stamp set. This set has line images so you can use it for several stamping techniques. You can water color the images or use the coordinating bold images to fill the bouquet of flowers, or use your alcohol markers to color the images as well. 

Like I mentioned, there are lots of options. 

For my card today, I decided to use the bold images to fill in the flowers in the flower bouquet. 

The Color Combination 

For the color combination, I picked a paper pattern and took a color combination from it.  You can see below the color combo I picked. 

This is always the easiest way to get color combinations that never fail! believe me! give it a try and you will see how easy this is. 

Easy Friendship Handmade Card

As you can see on my card the designer series paper really makes the card pop up.. It adds a lot of color and it makes every element of it flow better. 

For the focal point, I decided to use the image of the two flowers, and I colored them using the coordinating bold images from the same set. I loved how it looks and because the bold images do not cover every single area of the line image, it makes it look more artistic. 

One tip as you are stamping the image with the bold stamps, is to wait until the end.. you know when you put down the first stamp, it might feel like it’s not pretty, because of all the white area. But once you start adding the other images and color, you will notice the artistic look and I am sure you will love it.. so please don’t dismiss using those stamps!

The scallop border is part of the die set on the Hand-Penned Bundle. If you ask me, I think this is one of those dies you will want to use in a lot cards, as it cut the scallop, with the stitch marks along the border. Super cute! 

Below you will see the video tutorial with a step by step instructions on how to make this card.
