Stamp Ink Paper: A Sketch

Today’s card is special not because it’s a sketch for the Stamp Ink Paper card challenge, but because it was a special order for an old friend I was once deployed with.  He saw a set of custom coffee mugs I made for my brother and his bride for their one year anniversary and asked if I could make a set of mugs for his brother and sister-in-law.

 These are the coffee mugs my friend ordered.

These are the one’s I made for my brother’s one year anniversary.  

Wow! I was very happy when I found out this week’s challenge was a sketch.  I really miss sketches a whole lot.  What kind of challenges do you prefer?  Sketch or Images as inspiration?  Join us this week at the Stamp Ink Paper challenge.

The Details:

  • Cut, Stamp, Punch:  It’s one of the quick methods to quickly make a card.
  • Less is more.  Seriously, I don’t know where to begin to describe how easy it is to make your own handmade card.
  • Designer Series Paper (DSP).  I used a retired piece of DSP as the background, but you can use our new designs or some of your own.
  • Heart Punch!  If you didn’t get the heart punch when it retired, don’t worry, you can use one of the smaller hearts from the Sweet & Sassy framelits dies.  If you want to add an embellishment put a rhinestone on the upper right side of the heart.

Stamp Ink Paper: A Wedding

What do you give a friend that is an artist and her groom is a painter….LOL?  Is it obvious!?  I collect little charms and make my own chains to boot!  I then the charms when making cards.  On this card I used two cute little kissing love birds.  They are perfect for this wedding card because it has something old and something new and you can see what they are in The Details below.

If you need some inspiration for wedding cards then come on down to the Stamp Ink Paper Challenge and you’ll be sure to be inspired by our team designers. 

The Details:

  • New Stamp Set.  The sentiment is embossed with white embossing power to make it standout on the dark wood paper.  Keep a look out for the Colorful Season Photopolymer stamp set (143726). You’re going to love it.
  • New Designer Series Paper.  It’s better than the previous wood textures they had last year.  Stampin’ Up! continues to one-up itself (LOL)…..so, keep an eye out for the Wood Textures Designer Series stack.
  • Spilled Paint.  I made the spilled paint spots with the soon to retire Gorgeous Grunge stamp set, so get it while you can still buy it on-line.  You’d be surprised how many people will want it after it’s no longer available. It happens with each catalog.
  • Love Birds Bracelet.  I collect charms from all over the place and also buy them on-line.  I use them to make gifts and put on cards (obviously).  These are two love birds because it’s a wedding card.  

Use Host Code above and receive a gift from me when you place an on-line order via my on-line store.  Do not use if your order is more than $150. You will receive additional Host Reward and you’ll automatically receive a gift from me.

Stamp Ink Paper Challenge: In Style

Welcome to the Stamp Ink Paper Challenge Tuesday style! This post is coming to you from the road.  Yes, being retired has it’s perks and I’ve been out of the country for the last four days.  What in the world would we do without WiFi?

Sometimes, it’s not difficult to create a card for a sketch challenge, but it sure is difficult to choose which set you’re going to use.  Close your eyes and just pick one! That’s exactly what I did and I couldn’t be happier because it’s already one of my favorites.

Stamp Ink Paper Challenge

The Details:

  • Stamp it.  Seriously!, that’s how easy it was to come up with this technique (LOL). It’s what I love about layouts.
  • Where to place the sequin!? I think this was the most difficult decision I had to make for this card.  Wherever you decide to place your sequin, just remember don’t adhere them down to the carsick until you know for sure where they  belong.  Embellishments should add a balance to the card.  But in reality, does it matter? LOL, probably not, just don’t place them on the very edge of the card.  You’ll feel off kilter.
