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!
