Stampin’ Up Meant To Be For Paper Craft Crew and Sunday Stamps

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  How has your week started off?  We are having a couple very cold days here.  It’s been in the negative digits with the wind chill.

For today’s card I played along with 2 challenges.

The first was the Paper Craft Crew Valentine Color Challenge #322.  Be sure to stop by to see what everyone has made and to play along. Here is their challenge.

The next one is Sunday Stamps Sketch Challenge #196.  Be sure to stop by to see what they have made and to play along with them. Here is their sketch.

I started with a Whisper White card front and adhered a piece of How Sweet It Is Designer Series Paper using Snail.  I took a strip of Whisper White cardstock and using my Big Shot, I embossed it with the Lace Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  I adhered it to the left side of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I wrapped a piece of the 3/8″ Berry Burst Metallic Edge Ribbon around the embossed strip and the card front.

On a small piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Meant To Be Cling Stamp Set in Cherry Cobbler Ink.  Using the 5th from the largest Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies I cut the sentiment out with my Big Shot.  I adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and added a Coastal Cabana Glitter Enamel Dot to the corner.

On a panel of Petal Pink Cardstock I stamped the floral heart image from the Meant To Be stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink twice.  I then cut the 2 hearts out using the Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies.  I also cut 2 of the same size hearts out in Cherry Cobbler cardstock for the frame around the stamped hearts.  I adhered the hearts to the sentiment using Stampin’ Dimensionals and Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the card front to a Berry Burst card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside on a Whisper White panel I stamped the sentiment from the Meant To Be stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink.  I stamped one more of the floral hearts in Cherry Cobbler Ink on a piece of Coastal Cabana cardstock and cut it out using the Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies.  I adhered the heart to the left side of the Whisper White panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Coastal Cabana mat using Snail then adhered it to the Berry Burst card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the floral heart from the Meant To Be stamp set on the front of the envelope.  I adhered a piece of the How Sweet It Is DSP to the envelope flap.

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

Stampin’ Up Hello Cupcake For Inspire Create Colour Challenge #304

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  Hope you all had a nice weekend.  Did you get any snow?  We were suppose to and ended up with nothing but rain.

For today’s card I played along with Inspire. Create Colour Challenge #304.

Be sure to stop by Inspire. Create to see all the projects and to play along. Here are their fun colors for this challenge.

I used the Stampin’ Up Hello Cupcake stamp set.  It’s one of the FREE products from Sale-A-Bration with a $50 order.  I started with a Pineapple Punch card front.  Using my Stamparatus I stamped the Sprinkled with Love sentiment from the Hello Cupcake in Pineapple Punch Ink.  I adhered the card front to a Lovely Lipstick mat using Snail.

On a small piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the cupcake wrapper in Call Me Clover Ink on the bottom.  I then stamped the icing on the cupcake in Calypso Coral Ink above the wrapper and the sprinkles in Night Of Navy Ink on the icing.  I colored the sprinkles in using my Night of Navy Stampin’ Write Marker.  I adhered the artwork to a Lovely Lipstick mat using Snail.  I adhered the matted artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Pineapple Punch cardstock I stamped the Sprinkled with Love sentiment in Lovely Lipstick and made a banner.  I adhered the banner using Stampin’ Dimensionals to the left of the artwork.  I added a couple of the Candle Embellishments to the cupcake and a Happiness Blooms Enamel Dot in Call Me Clover on the artwork.  I adhered the card front to a Pineapple Punch card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
On the inside I stamped the cupcake from the Hello Cupcake stamp set the same as I did for the artwork, but I stamped off twice to get a light image on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set in Night of Navy Ink over the top of the cupcake.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Night of Navy mat using Snail then adhered it to the Pineapple Punch card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the cupcake from the Hello Cupcake stamp set on the envelope front the same as I did for the artwork.  I stamped the sprinkles from the same stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on the envelope flap.

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

Stampin’ Up One For All Around The Corner

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers.  Have you all had a good week?  Any fun plans for the weekend?  I’m hoping to spend some time at my craft table.  I’ve seen a lot of great challenges that I’d like to try.

For today’s card I have a very quick and easy card even though there are many layers.  This is one of the cards we made at my workshop.  I had different levels of stampers and they all did a fabulous job.  Take a look.

I started with a Tranquil Tide card front and adhered a panel of Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper to it using Snail.  I wrapped a piece of 3/8″ Gold Metallic-Edge Ribbon around the bottom section of the card front.  I then adhered the card front to a Mint Macaron card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  If you really like the Tranquil Tide, now is the time to grab it.  It will be going away in June, so it would be best to get it now before it hits the retiring list.  It’s such a beautiful rich teal color.  I’m surely going to miss it.

Using my Stamparatus, I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Stampin’ Up One For All stamp set in Tranquil Tide Ink.  By using the Stamparatus if the image wasn’t dark enough I was able to re-stamp it perfectly.  I then stamped the streamer and the birthday hat from the Stampin’ Up Around The Corner stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink.  I adhered the artwork to a Tranquil Tide Mat using Snail then adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a few Gold Metallic Pearls to the artwork to add a little bling.

For the inside I used my Tranquil Tide and Mint Macaron Stampin’ Write Markers to color just the sentiment part of one of the other images from the One For All stamp set.  I stamped the sentiment in the center of a Very Vanilla panel then adhered it to the Mint Macaron card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card, I adhered a piece of the Share What You Love Specialty DSP to a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope flap.  There you have it a very quick and easy card that looks like it took you hours to make.

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

Stampin’ Up Rooted In Nature Masculine Card

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers.  Is anyone making any fun plans for the weekend?  One more work day left in the week and then 2 off, for most.   I usually work on weekends, so I get 1 day off and I’m usually off Friday’s too.

For today’s card I made a masculine card using the Stampin’ Up Rooted In Nature bundle.

I’m one who always struggles with masculine cards, they are a challenge for me.  Since I did come up with one, I played along with Watercolor Wednesday Challenge #204.  Be sure to stop by and see what everyone had created.   Here is their challenge.

I started with a Sahara Sand card front and adhered a panel of Nature’s Poem Designer Series Paper using Snail.  I then adhered it to a Soft Suede card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Using my Triple Banner Punch, I made a banner from a smaller piece of Sahara Sand cardstock.  I also cut a banner from another piece of the Nature’s Poem DSP and adhered it to the Sahara Sand banner using Snail.  I wrapped a piece of the Crumb Cake Nature’s Twine around the top and tied a bow.

I adhered the banner to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals lining it up with the DSP on the card front.  I cut a couple small and large leaves out using my Big Shot and the Nature’s Roots Framelits Dies in Tranquil Tide cardstock.  I adhered them to the top of the banner by the bow using Snail and Stampin’ Dimensionals.  On a small piece of Sahara Sand cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Rooted In Nature stamp set in Tranquil Tide Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using my Big Shot and the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies Circle.  I adhered the sentiment to the banner using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside on a Very Vanilla panel I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Enjoy Life Photopolymer stamp set in Tranquil Tide Ink.  I stamped the Happy Birthday from the Stampin’ Up Hand Delivered Host stamp set below in Tranquil Tide Ink.  I stamped the larger leaf from Rooted In Nature stamp set, stamping off 3 times, over the sentiment.  I then adhered the Very Vanilla panel to the inside of the Soft Suede card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card, I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I stamped the leaf from Rooted In Nature stamp set in Tranquil Tide Ink, stamping off once, on the envelope front.  I adhered a piece of the Nature’s Poem DSP to the envelope flap.

By purchasing the Rooted In Nature Bundle did you know you can save 10%.  The bundle includes the Stampin’ Up Rooted In Nature Stamp Set and the Natures Roots Framelits Dies.  I don’t know about you, but I’m all about saving money.

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

Stampin’ Up Abstract Impressions Thank You

Good Wednesday morning all my fellow stampers.  We’re half way through the week already.  Hope you are all having a great one.

For today’s card I used the Stampin’ Up Abstract Impressions Bundle.  Did you know if you purchase the Bundle (Stamp Set and Thinlits Dies) you get 10% off?  Who doesn’t like to save some money?  I know I sure do.  Purchasing this bundle you are just about to your $50 to earn a free Sale-A-Bration item and who doesn’t like FREE?

Here’s my card for today.  Take a look.

For this card, the measurements are a little different then my normal cards.  The measurements are below.  Using my Big Shot, I started by cutting out the beautiful corner floral piece from the Springtime Impressions Thinlits Dies in So Saffron cardstock.  I adhered the die cut to a So Saffron card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a Whisper White panel, using my Stamparatus, I stamped the Thank You sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Abstract Impressions stamp set in Shaded Spruce, Melon Mambo and Mango Melody Inks.  I then stamped the watermark behind each sentiment in Soft Sea Foam, Powder Pink and So Saffron Inks.  I was able to get everything lined up perfectly by using the Stamparatus and hinging down to repeat each sentiment, (hope that made sense).  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Night Of Navy mat using Snail.

I adhered a double bow using Night Of Navy Medium Bakers Twine below the sentiments.  I adhered the artwork to the So Saffron card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I adhered a piece of Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper to the right side of the card base.  I stamped the flowers from the Abstract Impressions stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink, stamped off once, Soft Sea Foam Ink, Petal Pink Ink and Calypso Coral Ink along the bottom of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set in Night of Navy Ink in the center.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the So Saffron card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered a panel of the Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper to the inside left of the card base using Snail.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the flowers from the Abstract Impressions stamp set along the bottom front of the envelope the same way I did for the inner liner.  I adhered a piece of Garden Impressions DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for visiting my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Happy stamping.

Stampin’ Up Lemon Zest

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  How is your week going?

For today’s card I used another one of my favorites, Stampin’ Up Lemon Zest stamp set.  I did the masking technique for my card today.  Take a look.

I started with a Lemon Lime Twist card front and adhered a strip of the Gingham Gala 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper on the bottom portion.  I wrapped a piece of Lemon Lime Twist 1/4″ Organdy Ribbon (free Sale-A-Bration item with $50 purchase) around the bottom and tied a knot.  I adhered the card front to a Basic Black mat using Snail.

On a piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the cut fruit pieces from the Stampin’ Up Lemon Zest stamp set in Grapefruit Grove, Lemon Lime Twist, Mango Melody and Pineapple Punch.   I cut all the images out using the Layering Circles Framelits Dies that matched up with the image size.  I adhered the 4 slices to a Whisper White cardstock using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I stamped the whole lemon image on a piece of Whisper White cardstock in Pineapple Punch Ink and the leaf image in Lemon Lime Twist, stamping them both off once. I punched the lemon and leaves out using the Lemon Builder Punch.  I stamped the sentiment from the Lemon Zest stamp set in the center of the lemon in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.

I adhered the leaves to the back of the lemon using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Using Stampin’ Dimensionals I adhered the lemon to the center of the sliced images.  I adhered the artwork to the top portion of the Lemon Lime Twist card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue then adhered the card front to a Grapefruit Grove card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The inside of the card is where I used the masking technique.  I stamped the 1st fruit slice from the Lemon Zest stamp set in Pineapple Punch Ink in the top left corner.  I covered the image with a cut out Post-It note and stamped the Grapefruit Grove and Lemon Lime Twist images.  I then covered the Lemon Lime Twist image and stamped the Mango Melody image.  I stamped the sentiments from the same stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of the Whisper White panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Basic Black mat using Snail then to the Grapefruit Grove card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the front of the envelope with the Lemon Zest stamp set using the masking technique.  I adhered a piece of Gingham Gala 6 X 6 DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for checking out my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try.  The masking technique is a very easy and fun technique.  Happy stamping.

Stampin’ Up Lasting Lily Sympathy

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  Hope you all had a great weekend.

For today’s card I made a Sympathy card using a Sale-A-Bration stamp set that is available free with a $100 order.  There are a couple of items from the Sale-A-Bration catalog that require a $100 order, but most of the products are free with a $50 order.  I used the beautiful Stampin’ Up Lasting Lily Photopolymer Distinktive stamp set. Take a look

I started with a Wood Textures Designer Series Paper card front and adhered it to a Mint Macaron card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a Whisper White panel, using my Stamparatus,  I stamped the stems from the Stampin’ Up Lasting Lily stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink. I stamped the leaf in Mint Macaron Ink on the stem on the right.  I then stamped the Lily’s from the same set in Powder Pink Ink onto the stems.  All the stamping of these flowers I used my Stamparatus,  it made it much easier to line everything up.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Powder Pink mat using Snail.  I wrapped a Mint Macaron piece of Nature’s Twine around the bottom of the artwork.

I adhered the matted artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  On a small piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Lasting Lily stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink.  I cut the oval out using my Big Shot and my Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.  Using the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies and my Big Shot again, I cut the Powder Pink scalloped oval mat.  I adhered the Stitched oval to the Powder Pink mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue then adhered it to the artwork and card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a Pearl Basic Jewel to the sentiment oval.

On the inside Whisper White panel I stamped the Lily image again from the Lasting Lily stamp set the same as I did for the card front, but stamping off once.  I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set over the lilies in Mint Macaron Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Powder Pink mat using Snail and then to the Mint Macaron card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the lilies from the Lasting Lily stamp set on the front of the envelope the same way I did for the card.  I adhered a piece of Wood Textured 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. Happy Stamping.
