Stampin’ Up Just Because Sneak Peek

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  Hope you all had a wonderful weekend and have made some fun plans for tonight.  My plans usually involve staying home and trying to stay up till midnight.  I may just have to work at my craft table to stay awake.  What every your plans are, stay safe ringing the New Year in.  I can’t believe the year is over and we start a new one tomorrow.

For today’s card I used a Host exclusive set called Just Because.  You can earn this set by having a qualifying party or spending $150.00 yourself on products.  Here’s my card for today.

I started with a panel of Floral Romance Specialty Designer Series Paper, (available January 3, 2019, just 3 days away), as my card front.  I adhered another piece of the same paper to the bottom portion of the card front using Glue Dots.  The bottom is a beautiful Vellum piece so you have to be careful when adhering it or you may be able to see the adhesive used.  I then wrapped a piece of Linen Thread around the card front twice just at the vellum piece.

On a small piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped one of the images from the Just Because Host Exclusive stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored it in using my Mossy Meadow, (available January 3, 2019), and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the artwork to a Petal Pink Mat using Snail then to a Fresh Fig mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the matted artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the card front to a Fresh Fig card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the Happy Anniversary sentiment from Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set in Fresh Fig Ink.  Using my Big Shot and Bunch Of Banners Framelits I cut the sentiment out and adhered it under the artwork using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Clear Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the image from Just Because Host Exclusive stamp set on a Whisper White panel.  I colored the stamp in using my Mossy Meadow and Petal Pink Stampin’ Write Markers stamping it off once.  I stamped the sentiment from Forever Lovely stamp set (available January 3, 2019) over the stamped image in Mossy Meadow Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Sahara Sand mat using Snail then adhered it to the Fresh Fig card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the vase image from Just Because stamp set on the front of the envelope colored the same as I did for the inner liner.  I adhered a piece of Floral Romance Specialty DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. I hope you all have a Happy Healthy and Safe New Year.  I will see you next year!Happy Stamping.

Stampin’ Up Animal Expeditions Birthday

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers.  Well, we’re up to another weekend already and for some of you it’s another 4 day weekend.  I just love these short weeks.  Is anyone making some fun plans for the weekend or New Year’s yet?  2019 is just 4 days away and that means that in just 6 days the 2019 Occasions Catalog and Sale-A-Bration Catalog start.  I’m making up my wish list and I hope you are too.

For today’s card I pulled out some of the Animal Expeditions Designer Series Paper and let that do all the work for me.  I have a nephew’s birthday coming up and he loves alligators.  I don’t know about you, but I always have trouble with masculine cards and boys cards.  I’m always afraid I’m going to make them too girly looking.  Here’s what I came up with for an 8 year old boy. Take a look.

I started with a Basic Black card front and adhered a piece of the Animal Expeditions Designer Series Paper using Snail.  I then adhered it to a Lemon Lime Twist card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Using my Big Shot and my Happy Birthday Thinlits Dies, I cut it out twice.  Once in Lemon Lime Twist cardstock and once in Basic Black cardstock.  I adhered the Lemon Lime Twist Happy Birthday to the Basic Black Happy Birthday using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I then adhered the Happy Birthday dies to the card front using Glue Dots.

On the inside Whisper White panel I stamped the sentiment from Postcard Pals stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink in the center.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Shaded Spruce mat using Snail.  I then fussy cut some of the alligators from the Animal Expeditions DSP and adhered them to the Whisper White panel using Snail.  I adhered the matted panel to the Lemon Lime Twist card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish up my card I adhered a piece of the Animal Expeditions DSP to a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  There you go a super simple little boy’s birthday card and not too girly looking.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up Humming Along Sneak Peek

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers.  This week is just flying by, isn’t it?  I just love long weekends and short weeks.

I’ve got another sneak peek for you.  Only 1 week and you can order from the new 2019 Occasions Catalog and Sale-A-Bration Catalog, YAY!  I used the Stampin’ Up Humming Along Cling Stamp Set. Take a look.

I started with a Sahara Sand card front and using my Big Shot I ran it through with the new Lace Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  I adhered it to a Whisper White mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I then adhered it to a Mint Macaron card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the Hibiscus image from the Humming Along stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored it in using my Mint Macaron, Petal Pink, Pineapple Punch and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I fussy cut it using my Paper Snips then adhered it to a panel of Poppy Parade cardstock using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered the artwork to a Whisper White mat using Snail then adhered it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I attached a bow made from the Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon, with a glue dot to the Hibiscus stem.  I added a few Mint Macaron Faceted Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the hibiscus image from the Humming Along stamp set in Petal Pink Ink, stamping off once, in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink over the flower.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the Mint Macaron card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the Hibiscus in Petal Pink Ink on the envelope front and the leaf in Mint Macaron Ink on the envelope flap.  Both stamps are from the Humming Along stamp set.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it at try once you can purchase these items.  Happy Stamping!

Stampin’ Up Time For Tea for Fab Friday #153

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  Did you all have a nice Christmas?  Was Santa good to you?  Did anyone get some fun new stamping products?  Hope you all had an enjoyable day with your loved ones.

For today’s card I have a little sneak peek for you.  I played along with the Fab Friday sketch challenge #153.  Please be sure to stop by Fab Friday to play along and see what everyone has made.  Here is their sketch.

Here is what I came up with for the sketch.  Take a look.

I started with a Crumb Cake card base and using Snail I adhered a panel of the beautiful All My Love Designer Series Paper, which will be available January 3, 2019.  I adhered a smaller strip of the same DSP about 2/3 of the way down the card front.

On a small piece of Whisper White cardstock, I stamped the teacup image from the Stampin’ Up Time For Tea Photopolymer Stamp Set in Lovely Lipstick Ink.  Using my Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Write Marker I colored part of the sentiment in and stamped it above and below the teacup.  I colored the teacup in using my Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blends Markers.  Using my Big Shot and my Stitched Shaped Framelits Dies, I cut out the teacup with my second largest stitched circle.  I adhered the artwork to a Pearlized Doilie using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Using my Big Shot, I cut a circle out from Balmy Blue cardstock using my Layering Circles Framelits Dies.  I adhered the Balmy Blue circle just under the Doilie.  I adhered the layered artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside on a Whisper White panel I stamped the bottom section of the sentiment from the Time For Tea stamp set in Lovely Lipstick Ink.  I stamped the teacup in Flirty Flamingo Ink, stamping off twice, on top of the sentiment.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Balmy Blue mat using Snail then adhered it to the Crumb Cake card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card, I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the teacup from the Time For Tea stamp set in Flirty Flamingo Ink on the front of the envelope.  I adhered a piece of the All My Love DSP on the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try.  Only 8 days till you can order from the new 2019 Occasions Catalog and earn FREE products from the Sale-A-Bration catalog.  Happy Stamping.

Stampin’ Up Humming Along Sneak Peek for Freshly Made Sketches

Good Friday morning all my fellow stampers.  Well we’ve made it through another week and for some you may have a nice long weekend coming up with Christmas being only 4 days away, YIKES.  Is everyone ready?  I finally got my Christmas cards mailed out and hopefully they will arrive before Christmas.

For today I’ve got a sneak peek for you of a new stamp set and Designer Series Paper coming up in the new 2019 Occasions Catalog, which you will be able to order from in less than 2 weeks my friends, YAY.  I’ve also played along with the Freshly Made Sketches #368.  Please be sure to stop by Freshly Made Sketches to see the beautiful projects and to play along.  Here is their sketch.

This sketch really helped me out today, since I was having major crafters block.  Here is my take on the sketch.  Take a look.

I started with a card base of Sahara Sand cardstock.  I adhered a piece of the new BEAUTIFUL Floral Romance Designer Series Paper, available January 3, 2019, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I matted another piece of the DSP on a small piece of Sahara Sand cardstock using Snail.

I took a small piece of Pear Pizzazz cardstock and ran it through my Big Shot using the Lovely Floral Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  I then adhered it to a Sahara Sand mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the 2 matted pieces onto the card front.  The Pear Pizzazz one I used Multipurpose Liquid Glue and the DSP one I used Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the new Humming Along stamp set, available January 3, 2019, in Petal Pink Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using my Big Shot and the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies.  I edged the oval using my Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Write Marker to give a little dimension.  I cut the Sahara Sand mat out using the same framelits dies.  I adhered the sentiment to the Sahara Sand mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue then adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Clear Rhinestone Basic Jewels for a little bling.

On the inside I used the One For All stamp set, but only the sentiment part of one of the stamps.  I colored the stamp using my Mossy Meadow and Petal Pink Stampin’ Write Markers and stamped it in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I then stamped the leaf from the Humming Along stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink, stamping off twice, in the center of the sentiment.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the Sahara Sand card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card off I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the leaf from Humming Along stamp set on the bottom front of the envelope in Pear Pizzazz Ink.  I adhered a piece of Floral Romance DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card.  These items will all be available on January 3, 2019.  Happy Stamping!
