Stampin’ Up Life Is Grand Quick and Easy Card

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers.  Only one more day till the weekend.  Is anyone making any plans?

For today’s card I have a very quick and easy card for you.  I let the Designer Series Paper do most of the work for me.  Take a look.

I started with a Pineapple Punch card front and adhered a piece of How Sweet It Is Designer Series Paper to it using Snail.  I wrapped a piece of Coastal Cabana/Granny Apple Green 3/8″ Reversible Ribbon around the card front and tied a knot on the side.  I adhered the card front to a Thick Whisper White card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
On a piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from Stampin’ Up Life Is Grand Cling Stamp Set in Granny Apple Green Ink.  Using my Big Shot I cut the sentiment out with the largest oval from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I added a couple Granny Apple Green Glitter Enamel Dots to the stitched oval.

On the inside on a Whisper White cardstock panel I stamped the birthday sentiment from the Life Is Grand stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink in the center.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  To decorate the inside a little I added a panel of How Sweet It Is DSP.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the lollipops from the Stampin’ Up Sweetest Thing Stamp Set in Granny Apple Green ink on the envelope front.  I colored them in using my Coastal Cabana, Gorgeous Grape, Granny Apple Green, Melon Mambo and Pineapple Punch Stampin’ Write Markers.  I adhered a piece of How Sweet It Is DSP to the envelope flap.

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

Stampin’ Up Incredible Like You

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

For today’s card I used the Stampin’ Up Incredible Like You Photopolymer Stamp Set.  I love the sentiments in this set and the floral image  is so pretty.  Take a look.

For my card I also played along with 3 challenges.  The first is Just Add Ink Challenge #445.  Be sure to stop by to see what everyone had made.  Their challenge was Just Add Embossing, which I did.  I heat embossed and I used an embossing folder.

Next I played along with Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge # 309.  Be sure to stop by and play along with their challenge and see what everyone has made.  Theirs is a color challenge, and the colors are beautiful together.
Last is What Will You Stamp challenge #208.  Theirs is a specific stamp set you must use.  Be sure to stop by and play along with them too.

I started by stamping the sentiment from Incredible Like You stamp set in Pool Party Ink on a small piece of Whisper White cardstock.  I immediately sprinkled it with Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat set it with my Heat Tool.  You can emboss in any color when you use clear embossing powder.  I then stamped the stems from the same stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink around the bottom of the sentiment, then stamped the flowers, from the same stamp set, on the stems in Highland Heather Ink.  Using my Big Shot and the oval from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies, I cut the sentiment out and set it aside.
On a panel of Pool Party cardstock I stamped the flowers from the Incredible Like You stamp set in Pool Party Ink.  I stamped the inside of the flower stamping off once then stamped the second part of the flower full strength Pool Party Ink.  I stamped the leaf image from the same stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink randomly around.  I ran the Pool Party panel through my Big Shot using the Subtle Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder to give it a little more texture.

I adhered the card front to a Highland Heather mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I wrapped a piece of 3/8″ Silver Metallic Edge Ribbon around the center of the card front. I adhered the stitched oval with the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and adhered the card front to a Soft Sea Foam card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Clear Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the stems and flowers from the Incredible Like You stamp set in Soft Sea Foam and Highland Heather Inks on the bottom of a Whisper White cardstock panel.  I stamped the larger flower in the center of the Whisper White panel in Pool Party Ink, stamping the inside colored part off twice and the second part of the flower stamping off once.  I stamped the sentiment from Stampin’ Up Itty Bitty Birthday Stamp Set in Highland Heather Ink over the top of the flower.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Highland Heather mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Soft Sea Foam card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the stems and flowers from the Incredible Like You stamp set on the bottom of the envelope front the same as I did on my card.  I stamped the larger flower image in Pool Party Ink on the envelope flap.

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 Animal Outing Kids Birthday

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  How is everyone doing?  How’s the weather by you? VERY windy here yesterday.  We had trees down and branches flying.

For today’s card I made a Z-Fold Kids birthday card using the Stampin’ Up Animal Outing Bundle.  I love fun fold cards, I really need to make more for you.

I started with a Lemon Lime Twist card base and scored and folded it at 4 1/4″  and 2 1/8″.  Here’s what it looks like folded.

I adhered 2 different panels of Animal Expedition Designer Series Paper to a Call Me Clover mats using Snail.  I then adhered them both to the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the Giraffe image from the Animal Outing stamp set,  twice in Soft Suede Ink.  I colored both giraffes in with my Light Soft Suede and Light Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends Markers.  Using my Big Shot, I cut both images out using the Animal Friends Thinlits Dies.   I adhered the giraffes looking over the short panel at the 2 frogs on the branch on the larger panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
On another small piece of Whisper White cardstock, I stamped the birthday sentiment from Stampin’ Up Itty Bitty Birthday Stamp Set in Call Me Clover Ink.  Using my Big Shot again, I cut the sentiment out using the smallest Stitched Rectangle Framelit Die.  Then using the next size up, I cut another Stitched Rectangle out in Lemon Lime Twist cardstock.  I adhered the sentiment to the mat using Snail and then adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Call Me Clover Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots to the card front and the sentiment.  I also added 2 Candle Embellishments to the sentiment.  In case you can’t tell, the card was for a 2 year old.

On the inside I stamped a sentiment from the Itty Bitty Birthday stamp set in Call Me Clover on a rectangle a hair smaller than the Lemon Lime Twist mat on the card front.  I edged the rectangle with my Lemon Lime Twist Stampin’ Write Marker then adhered it to the inside, making sure it was under the rectangle on the card front, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card off, I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the giraffe and frog on a branch image from the Animal Outing stamp set in Soft Suede Ink.  I colored the giraffes in the same as I did for the card front and I colored the frog on the branch in with my Call Me Clover, Lemon Lime Twist and Soft Suede Stampin’ Write Markers.  I adhered a piece of Animal Expedition 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!

Stampin’ Up Sweetest Things for Hand Stamped Sentiments

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was your weekend? Did anyone get a lot of crafting done?

For today’s card I used the Stampin’ Up Sweetest Thing Bundle.  This is such a cheerful set with all the bright colors and fun designs.  Take a look.

I played along with Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge #308.  Be sure to stop by to play along and see what everyone has made.  Here is their sketch.


I started with a Melon Mambo card base and adhered a panel of How Sweet It Is Designer Series Paper using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I took a strip of Melon Mambo cardstock and wrapped a piece of the Coastal Cabana/Granny Apple Green 3/8″ Reversible Ribbon around it and tied a bow.  I adhered the strip to the left side of my card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped one of the candy jars from the Sweetest Thing stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock.  I then stamped the gummy bears, from the same stamp set, inside the jar in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored them in with my Coastal Cabana, Granny Apple Green and Melon Mambo Stampin’ Write Markers.  Using my Big Shot I cut the candy jar out with my Jar Of Sweets Framelits Dies.  I adhered the jar, using Stampin’ Dimensionals, to an oval which I cut out using the largest Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies in Granny Apple Green cardstock.  Using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, I adhered the oval just under the Melon Mambo strip.  I stamped the sentiment in Granny Apple Green on another scrap of Whisper White cardstock and cut it out using the smallest oval from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.  I cut the smallest scalloped oval from the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies in Melon Mambo cardstock.  I adhered the stitched oval to the center of the scalloped oval using Snail then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Glitter Enamel Dots to the card front in Coastal Cabana, Granny Apple Green and Melon Mambo.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Sweetest Thing stamp set in Granny Apple Green in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the gummy bears from the same stamp set along the bottom of the panel and colored them in the same as I did on the card front.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Granny Apple Green mat using Snail then adhered it to the inside of the Melon Mambo card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the candy jar and the gummy bears from the Sweetest Thing stamp set on the front of the envelope.  I adhered a piece of How Sweet It Is DSP to the envelope flap.

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

Stampin’ Up Heartland Masculine card for Watercooler Wednesday and Colour and Sketch

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers.  How was your week?  Are you happy the weekend is finally here? Has anyone made fun plans?  I’m hoping to get a little crafting in myself, but we’ll see.

For today’s card I used the Stampin’ Up Heartland Stamp Set to make a masculine card for you.  This can be a Father’s Day card, Birthday, Thinking of you, or anything else you can think of.

I also joined in with a couple challenges today.  1st is the CAS Colour & Sketch Challenge # 309.  Be sure to stop by to see what everyone has made and to play along.  Here are their colors for the challenge.

The next is Watercooler Wednesday Challenge #209.   Be sure to stop by here too and see what everyone has made and to play along.  Here is their challenge.

I started by adhering a piece of Wood Textures Designer Series Paper to a panel of Pear Pizzazz cardstock using Snail.  On another smaller piece of Wood Textures DSP I stamped the little boy with the ducks from the Heartland stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the right side.  I colored the little boy in with my Pear Pizzazz Stampin’ Write Marker and my light Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends Marker.  I then adhered the panel to the bottom of the Pear Pizzazz card front using Snail.
I wrapped a piece of Linen Thread around the seam twice and tied a small bow.  I adhered the card front to a So Saffron card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the tractor with the dog from the Heartland stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the tractor in using my Pear Pizzazz Stampin’ Write Marker and my Dark Daffodil Delight Stampn’ Blends Marker.  Using my Big Shot, I cut the image out with my Square Stitched Shaped Framelits Dies and I adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the tractor image from the Heartland stamp set in Early Espresso Ink, stamping off twice, in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Part Of My Story Stamp Set in Pear Pizzazz Ink over the tractor.  This stamp set is a Sale-A-Bration item free with a $50 order.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the tractor image from the Heartland stamp set on the front of the envelope.  I adhered a piece of Wood Textures 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. This was a pretty quick and easy card to make.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up Rooted In Nature Masculine Card

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers. The weekend is coming up quickly.  Is anyone making plans.

For today’s card I made a masculine card that we made at my last workshop.  The ladies wanted to make masculine cards, so that’s what we did.

I started with a panel of Nature’s Poem Designer Series Paper and using my Big Shot, I ran it through with the Pinewood Planks Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  I adhered the card front to a Tranquil Tide card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Using my Big Shot again, I cut 2 panels of the Nature’s Poem DSP out using my Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies.  I adhered each of the rectangles to a Tranquil Tide mat using Snail then I adhered them to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
On a small piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the tree trunk image from the Stampin’ Up Rooted In Nature Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink, stamping off twice.  I stamped the sentiment from the Rooted In Nature stamp set in Soft Suede Ink in the center of the trunk then I fussy cut the trunk.  I adhered the trunk to the center of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I embossed and die cut a couple of the leaves from the Nature’s Roots Framelits Dies in Tranquil Tide cardstock.  I adhered the triple leaf under the top of the trunk using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and I adhered the other 2 leaves on the bottom of the trunk using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered a small Mint Macaron bow from the Nature’s Twine using a Glue Dot on top of the leaf stems.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Rooted In Nature stamp set in Soft Suede Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the leaf images from the same stamp set in Blackberry Bliss, Cajun Craze, Grapefruit Grove, Mint Macaron and Tranquil Tide Inks stamping off once or twice to get light images.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Tranquil Tide card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the front of the envelope the same as I did for the bottom of the inner liner of the card with the leaf images from the Rooted In Nature stamp set.  I adhered a piece of Nature’s Poem 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!

Stampin’ Up Lasting Lily Sympathy Card for WWYS

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  We made it half way through the week already.  Hope you are all having a good week.

For today’s card I used the Stampin’ Up Lasting Lily Stamp Set.   The images in this set are simply gorgeous.  Take a look.

I joined in with What Will You Stamp challenge #207. Be sure to stop by to see what everyone has made and to play along.  Here is their challenge.

I started with a Whisper White card front and stamped the lily image from the Lasting Lily stamp set in Blackberry Bliss Ink and the stems in Old Olive Ink.  Using my Big Shot and the 3rd largest Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies I cut the image out.  Using the 2nd largest Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies I cut an Old Olive mat.

I adhered the artwork to the Old Olive Stitched Rectangle mat using Snail.  I wrapped a piece of Blackberry Bliss Nature’s Twine around the matted artwork and adhered it to a Blackberry Bliss card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I stamped the sentiment from the Lasting Lily stamp set in Blackberry Bliss Ink on a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock.  I punched the sentiment out using the up coming Story Label Punch from the Sale-A-Bration Coordination collection available March 1st.  I edged the punch with my Blackberry Bliss Stampin’ Write Marker.  I adhered the label to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.I made a bow from the Old Olive Linen Thread and adhered it to the side of the label using a Glue Dot.  I added a few Pearl Basic Jewels to the card front.
On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Lasting Lily stamp set in Blackberry Bliss Ink on a Whisper White panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to an Old Olive mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Blackberry Bliss card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the lily’s from the Lasting Lily stamp set the same as I did for the card front on the front of the envelope.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  The Lasting Lily stamp set is a Sale-A-Bration item you can earn FREE with a $100.00 order.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping.
