Stampin’ Up! The Gang’s All Meer Card – Meerkats Rock!

I almost didn’t order the Gang’s All Meer Stamp Set, but I’m so glad I did. They are stinking’ cute all colored in – and sweet, too. Every time I finish stamping a card with them, I am smiling. I hope they make you smile, too!

I used the Stone 3D Embossing Folder in the Power of Hope Bundle from the first Sale-A-Bration Brochure. I inked the side with the logo with my open Gray Granite ink pad. I placed the 5 1/4″ x 4″ Whisper White Cardstock on the other side and, after carefully closing it, ran it through the Big Shot. Then I cut an oval from the center. I fitted it on top of a Whisper White Card Base and lightly traced the oval on the front with a pencil. I used this as a guide to stamp the Meerkat family and erased it afterward.

On a scrap of Whisper White I stamped the extra Meerkat, cactus and lizard. I used the Stampin’ Blends listed below to color the images and fussy cut them. (I know! But it wasn’t bad at all.)

I popped the stone layer on the card front with Dimensionals and added the separate Meerkat and the cactus with Mini Dimensionals. Be careful to either only get the dimensional on the stone layer or double layer where they hit inside the oval. I used the left over stone oval on the inside to cover the bleed through of the markers and added the cute lizard with Liquid Adhesive. The sentiment is stamped in Gray Granite. I like that there is lots of room for the “gang” to sign their wishes for the recipient.

If you place a $50 order you can get The Gang’s All Meer stamp set for free until March 31st or supply runs out. Just click the Online Store to the right and be sure to add the Host Code below for your Customer and Loyalty Rewards.

Stampin’ Up! Power of Hope Card

For this card, I used the Power of Hope Cling Stamp Set from the Bundle in the Sale-A-Bration Brochure. It is free with a $100 purchase through March 31st and includes a versatile Stone 3D Embossing Folder that I did not use here. Links to the products are included below that will take you to my online store.

I wish you could see the subtle, yet impactful, sparkle from the Wink of Stella on the lantern lights. So pretty!

The Cutting

  • Real Red Cardstock Base: 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″
  • Whisper White Cardstock: Two 5 1/4″ x 4″ one for the inside and one for the Stitched Rectangle Die (largest) for the card front.
  • Crushed Curry Cardstock layer: 3 7/8″ 5 3/8″

The Stamping and Embellishing

  • I began by drawing the lantern strings with the black Stampin’ Write Marker small end.
  • I stamped the lanterns, sentient and pagoda in Tuxedo Black Ink.
  • I used the following Stampin’ Blends to color the images: Real Read Combo, Dark Cherry Cobbler, Soft Suede Combo, So Saffron Combo, Seaside Spray Combo, and Gray Granite Stampin’ Write. On the lanterns I started with the dark on the outside and got lighter going to the center.
  • I added Wink of Stella to the yellow centers of the lanterns.
  • I used the Poppy Parade Stampin’ Write marker to add the ink spray in the background by flicking the tip against the cap toward the card front.
  • The inside and Crushed Curry layer are adhered with Snail Adhesive. The Stitched Rectangle is raised with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.
