Stampin’ Up Incredible Like You Birthday Card

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers.  It’s Friday and we made it through another week.  Did everyone have a nice Valentine’s Day?

For today’s card I used the Stampin’ Up Incredible Like You Stamp Set and the Celebrate You Thinlits Dies to create a birthday card for you.  Take a look.

I started with a panel of the beautiful All My Love Designer Series Paper and adhered it to a Lovely Lipstick card base.  On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I first stamped the leaf images from the Incredible Like You stamp set in Call Me Clover and Soft Sea Foam Inks.  I then stamped the tiny flowers in Highland Heather Ink.  I stamped the larger 2-step flower image first in Flirty Flamingo Ink for the detailed image then in Flirty Flamingo Ink again stamping off once for the inside color.

Using my Big Shot I cut the Celebrate and You out from the Celebrate You Thinlits Dies in Lovely Lipstick cardstock.  Before I cut them I adhered a piece of Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets to the back of the paper so that I just had to peel and stick after cutting.

I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Lovely Lipstick mat using Snail and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a Lovely Lipstick knot from the All My Love Ribbon Combo Pack, to the top of the Whisper White panel using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the flower stems from the Incredible Like You stamp set in Call Me Clover Ink along the bottom of a Whisper White Panel.  I stamped the tiny flowers in Lovely Lipstick Ink on the stems.  I stamped the larger 2-step flower the same as I did on the card front in Flirty Flamingo Ink in the center of the Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from  the same stamp set in Lovely Lipstick Ink over the flower.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Flirty Flamingo mat using Snail then to the inside of the Lovely Lipstick card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the stems from the Incredible Like You stamp set along the bottom of the envelope front in Call Me Clover Ink.  I stamped the tiny flowers alternating, in Lovely Lipstick and Highland Heather Inks on the stems.  I adhered a piece of All My Love 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 Butterfly Gala for CAS(E) This Sketch and Fab Friday Challenges

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers and Happy Valentine’s Day.  Does anyone have plans for tonight?   Date night with your significant others maybe.  What ever you do, enjoy your evening.  I’ll be staying in since mine still has a broken leg and broken ribs.

For today’s card I used the Stampin’ Up Butterfly Gala Stamp Set for a clean and simple card and since it is Valentine’s Day I figured I’d use some pinks for my card.  It seemed appropriate for the occasion.  Take a look.

I joined in with 2 challenges today also.  First I played along with CAS(E) This Sketch challenge #308.

Second I played along with Fab Friday Color challenge #156.  Be sure to stop by both to see all the beautiful projects made and to play along.

I started with a Blushing Bride card front and stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Butterfly Gala Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the right side.

I took a small panel of Lovely Lipstick cardstock and ran it through my Big Shot with the Petal Pair Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  I adhered the embossed panel to the right side of the card front, up against the edge, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped one of the small butterflies from the Butterfly Gala stamp set 3 times on a piece of Whisper White cardstock in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I then stamped the inside of each of the butterflies in Grapefruit Grove Ink.  I punched the butterflies out using my Butterfly Duet Punch (which unfortunately is currently on backorder) and adhered them to the embossed panel using Glue Dots.  I added a Black Faceted Dots to each of the butterflies and bent their wings up a little.  I adhered the card front to a Blushing Bride card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Bright Wishes Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped 3 more butterflies from the Butterfly Gala stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a piece of Whisper White cardstock.  I stamped the top portion of 2 of the butterflies and bottom portion of 1 butterfly in Lovely Lipstick Ink.  I stamped the top portion of 1 butterfly and bottom portion of 2 butterflies in Grapefruit Grove Ink then punched all 3 butterflies out using the Butterfly Duet Punch.  I adhered the butterflies around the sentiment using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card off I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the butterfly image from the Butterfly Gala stamp set on the front and back flap of the envelope.  I stamped the colors Grapefruit Grove and Lovely Lipstick on the inside of the butterflies.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my Clean & Simple, Quick & Easy card and will give it a try.  Happy Stamping!

Stampin’ Up By The Bay For TGIF and ‘Just Us Girls’ Challenges

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  How is your week going?  Were you able to hop around yesterday with our team Blog Hop? If not, go back and check out everyone’s beautiful projects.

For today’s card I used a FREE Sale-A-Bration stamp set called By The Bay.  I joined in with the TGIF Challenge #198 and ‘Just Us Girls’ Challenge #474. Be sure to stop by both challenges to see what everyone has made and to play along.  Here is my card that I came up with for the challenges.

Here is the TGIF Sketch Challenge

and here is ‘Just Us Girls’ Challenge

I started with a panel of Wood Textures Designer Series Paper and adhered it to a Crumb Cake card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the house image from the Stampin’ Up By The Bay Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  This beautiful stamp set is a FREE item with a $50 order during Sale-A-Bration.  I just love this image and would absolutely love to be in that house looking out at the bay right now.  On a smaller piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the seagull image in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  Using my Aqua Painter filled with Alcohol, I water colored the images in using Balmy Blue, Cajun Craze, Crumb Cake, Gray Granite, Pacific Point, Pear Pizzazz, Sahara Sand, Smoky Slate and Soft Suede Inks.  To get the ink I squeezed the stamp pad before opening it so that ink goes on the inside of the lid.  I used my Aqua Painter to pick up the ink to color my picture with.  When I was done with each color, I wiped the lid with paper towel to make sure ALL alcohol was off the lid before closing it.  You do not want to get alcohol in your ink.  Once I was done watercoloring my pictures I cut them out using the Layering Oval Framelits Dies and my Big Shot.  I adhered the house and bay image to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and I adhered the seagull image using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the By The Bay stamp set in Soft Suede Ink.  I stamped the seashell from the same stamp set to the right of the sentiment in Crumb Cake Ink.  I edged the strip using my Crumb Cake Stampin’ Write Marker to give it a little dimension.  I then adhered the sentiment to the card front, sliding it under the seagull image, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I attached a small bow made of Linen Thread to the sentiment strip using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the house image from By The Bay stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink, stamping it off once, in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set in Soft Suede Ink over the house image.

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

Stampin’ Up Botanical Butterfly for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

 

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog  Hop.  If you are starting with me, welcome and be sure to hop around and see all the beautiful projects that everyone has made.  If you are hopping over from Amy Koenders blog, welcome to my blog. The 2nd Tuesday of every month this amazing group of ladies puts together a blog hop and you are guaranteed to see a lot of gorgeousness.  This months theme is ‘Birthday’.  I made a fun fold card for today’s blog hop.  I saw this design on Pinterest, but can not remember who made it.  Here is my card.

There are a lot of pieces to my card and all the measurements are found below.  I started with a Highland Heather panel of Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper and adhered it to a Basic Black mat using Snail.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Humming Along Stamp Set in Highland Heather Ink on a scrap of Whisper White cardstock.  I punched the sentiment out using the Pretty Label Punch.  I punched out 2 more of the labels from my Basic Black cardstock.

I adhered the 2 Basic Black labels using Snail behind the  sentiment so they were peeking out on the top and bottom.  I adhered a piece of 5/8″ Burlap Ribbon to the card front using Snail then  I adhered the matted sentiment on top of the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Using the Butterfly Duet Punch, I punched out some butterflies from a couple different Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper (Sale-A-Bration item).  The great thing about this punch is it not only punches out the butterflies from the Butterfly Gala stamp set it also fits the butterflies on the Botanical Butterfly DSP which is a FREE item with a $50  during Sale-A-Bration.  I adhered 2 small and 1 large butterfly to the card front and 1 small butterfly to the sentiment using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I added one of the Butterfly Elements (another Sale-A-Bration item) behind the sentiment using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I also added one of the Gingham Gala Adhesive-Backed Sequins to the sentiment.  I adhered the card front to a Highland Heather card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I adhered 2 panels of the Botanical Butterfly DSP to Basic Black mats using Snail and I adhered them both to either side of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Using my Big Shot I cut out 4 stitched squares from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies in the Highland Heather Gingham Gala DSP.  I adhered all 4 of them to a Basic Black mat and a Highland Heather mat both cut from my Layering Squared Framelits Dies, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered a butterfly punched out from the Botanical Butterfly DSP, to each of the squares using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I added a Gingham Gala Adhesive-Backed Sequins to each of the squares.  I adhered a Basic Black strip of paper, which had been scored, to the inside only adhering it on the 2 end sections.  I adhered each of the squares to a section of the Basic Black strip using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Here is a top view of the inside.

After I was all finished with the inside I realized that I didn’t leave a spot to put a sentiment or write, So I added another panel to the back.

I adhered a panel of the Highland Heather Gingham Gala DSP to a Basic Black mat using Snail.  On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Forever Lovely Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I added a couple more of the butterflies punched out from the Botanical Butterfly DSP and adhered them to the Whisper White panel and cut off what over hung using my Paper Snips.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the card back using Snail and adhered it to the back of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I adhered a couple of the large butterflies from the Botanical Butterfly DSP to the front of the envelope and a panel of the same DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card.

Stampin’ Up Happy Tails Triple Time Technique

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was your weekend?  Hope you were able to do something fun.

For today’s card I did the Triple Time Technique for you and used the new Stampin’ Up Happy Tails Bundle.  Did you know that when you purchase the bundle, Happy Tails stamp set and Dog Builder Punch, you get 10% off.  I love being able to save money any time I can. I just love this dog in the set, you can make many different kinds with it. I decided to make a Dalmatian for today. Take a look.

All the measurements for the layers are listed below.  I started with a small piece of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the dog from the Happy Tails stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on it.  I stamped the spots on top of the dog in Tuxedo Black Ink also.  I punched the dog out using the Dog Builder Punch and set it aside.

I then layered the 3 pieces of Whisper White cardstock, using the tiniest spot of Snail just to hold them in place while I was stamping.  I first stamped the sentiment from the Happy Tails stamp set on the top panel in Tuxedo Black Ink.  I then stamped the dog house from the same stamp set in Soft Suede Ink to the right of the sentiment stamping partially on the second layer, stamping off once.  I stamped the second part of the dog house on top of the first in Soft Suede Ink.  I randomly stamped the paw prints from the same stamp set all around in Tuxedo Black Ink.  Again, I randomly stamped the dog bones in Crumb Cake Ink all around the card front.  I finished the stamping with the Real Red hearts randomly stamped on the 3 layers.

I took the 3 layers apart and matted the top two layers on Basic Black cardstock using Snail.  The largest layer I adhered to a Basic Black card base using Snail.  I lined up each layer, matching the dog house,  paw prints, bones and hearts and adhered them using Snail.

Once all the layers were lined up and adhered together I added the punched dog to the top panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the paw prints from the Happy Tails stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink along the bottom of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up Itty Bitty Birthdays Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Basic Black card base using Snail.

To complete my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the dog from the Happy Tails stamp set on the front of the envelope.  I covered the envelope flap with the Dalmatian spots.

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

Stampin’ Up Life Is Grand Masculine Card

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers. WOW! It’s Friday already.  Does anyone have fun plans for the weekend?

For today I have another masculine card for you.   I’ve told you before how much I struggle with them.  I’ve actually come up with a few in the past couple weeks.  I used the Stampin’ Up Life Is Grand Stamp Set.  I love how t does the shading for you when you stamp.  Here’s my card for you.

I started with an Old Olive card front and ran it through my Big Shot using the Pinewood Planks Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  I stamped the ‘Make A Wish’ from the Life Is Grand stamp set in Old Olive Ink on a small piece of Whisper White cardstock.  I stamped the streamers from the Stampin’ Up Around The Corner Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink around the sentiment.

I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Smoky Slate mat using Snail.  I adhered the matted sentiment to the card front, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, on an angle so that it over hung on both sides of the card front.  I cut off the excess from each side using my Paper Snips.

I adhered the card front to a Night of Navy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside Whisper White panel I stamped the sentiment from the Life Is Grand stamp set in Old Olive Ink.  I stamped the corner streamers from the Around The Corner stamp set in Night of Navy Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Night of Navy card base using Snail.  I adhered a strip of Smoky Slate cardstock to a Whisper White mat using Snail and adhered it to the bottom of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the corner streamers from the Around The Corner stamp set on the front of the envelope and 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 Enjoy Life Clean and Simple Card

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers.  The weekend is approaching us quickly.  Is anyone making any fun plans?

For today I have a Clean and Simple Sympathy card for you.  I used the Stampin’ Up Enjoy Life Stamp Set along with a couple others.  Take a look.

I started with a Whisper White card front.  I took a scrap piece of paper and cut a circle out for a stencil.  I put the stencil where I wanted it on my card front and sponged inside the circle using first my So Saffron Ink then my Daffodil Delight Ink.  Once I was happy with the results, I removed the paper.  I stamped the image from Enjoy Life stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink over the sun.  I stamped the butterfly from the same stamp set above the floral image in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.

I stamped the ‘With Love & Sympathy” sentiment from the Stampn’ Up Itty Bitty Greetings Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the bottom of the card front.  I wrapped a piece of 5/8″ Burlap Ribbon around the card front and tied a knot.

I adhered the card front to a Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside on a Whisper White panel I stamped the floral image from the Enjoy Life stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, stamping off 3 times, to the bottom left side.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Lasting Lily Stamp Set (Sale-A-Bration item), in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Whisper White card base using Snail.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the floral image and butterfly from the Enjoy Life stamp set on the card front and the envelope flap in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.

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

Stampin’ Up Sweetest Thing Birthday Card

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  We’re half way through another week, I hope yours is going well.

For today I used one of the fun new bundles called Sweetest Things.  When I saw this set I just knew I had to have it.  When you purchase the bundle you save 10%.  The bundle includes the stamp set and the framelits dies.  Here is my card.

I started with a Whisper White card front and using my Big Shot I ran it through with the Tufted Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder.  I adhered the embossed panel to a Gorgeous Grape mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Using my Square Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies and Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies I cut out one of each from the How Sweet It Is Designer Series Paper. I adhered both the stitched square and stitched rectangle to Gorgeous Grape mats using Snail.

I adhered the rectangle to the left side of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the square to the right of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  On a small piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the candy jar image from the Sweetest Thing stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I stamped the candies from the same stamp set inside the jar in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink also.
I colored the candies in using my Coastal Cabana, Gorgeous Grape, Granny Apple Green, Melon Mambo and Pineapple Punch Stampin’ Write Markers.  Using my Big Shot and the Jar Of Sweets Framelits Dies, I cut the candy jar out and adhered it to the center of my stitched square using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I stamped the sentiment from the Sweetest Thing stamp set in Gorgeous Grape Ink on a strip of Whisper White cardstock.  I made a banner, edged it with my Coastal Cabana Stampin’ Write Marker and adhered it across the jar using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I wrapped a piece of the Coastal Cabana/Granny Apple Green 3/8″ Reversible Ribbon around the card front and tied a knot.  I adhered the card front to a Coastal Cabana card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
On the inside I stamped the Happy Birthday from the Sweetest Thing stamp set in Gorgeous Grape Ink.  I stamped the frame from the same stamp set in Coastal Cabana Ink around the sentiment.  I adhered a piece of the How Sweet It Is DSP to the bottom of the Whisper White panel using Snail.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Gorgeous Grape mat using Snail then to the Coastal Cabana card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the candy jar and candies from the Sweetest Thing stamp set on the envelope front.  I colored them in the same as I did on the card front.  I adhered a piece of How Sweet It Is DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for taking the time to stop by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up Meant To Be Forever Lovely

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  How has your week started?  Is everyone warming up a little from that freezing weather we were having?

For today’s card I used the beautiful Stampin’ Up Forever Lovely and Meant To Be Stamp Sets for a clean and simple card. Take a look.

I joined in with Global Design Projects 175 Theme Challenge too.  Be sure to check out all the beautiful projects that were made and play along too.  Here is their challenge.

I am really loving my Stamparatus.  I used it for this card and envelope and was able to line everything up perfectly.  I started with a Whisper White card front and stamped the floral image from Forever Lovely stamp set.  I first stamped the leaf image in Soft Sea Foam Ink.  I then stamped the floral image, lining it up using my Stamparatus, in Petal Pink Ink.
I wrapped a piece of the gorgeous new Petal Pink/Whisper White Variegated Ribbon around the card front and tied a bow.  This ribbon is so wonderful to work with and makes bows so easy.  I added a Glue Dot under the bow to hold it in place.  I added a few clear Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front by the flowers.
I stamped the sentiment from the Meant To Be stamp set in Petal Pink on a small piece of Whisper White cardstock and punched it out with the Pretty Label Punch.  I adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the card front to a Whisper White card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
It is extremely hard to see, but I stamped the leaves and floral design, from the Forever Lovely stamp set, the same way I did on the card front, stamping off once, on the inside Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the Forever Lovely stamp set in Petal Pink Ink over the floral image.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Whisper White card base using Snail.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the leaves and floral image from the Forever Lovely stamp set on the envelope front and the envelope flap the same way that I did for the card front.

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

Stampin’ Up Bella and Friends Pretty Kitty for Watercooler Wednesday

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was your weekend?  Did anyone watch the Super Bowl? Did your team win or did you just watch for the commercials like I do?

For today’s card I have a little girls birthday card using the Stampin’ Up Bella and Friends Stamp Set and the Stampin’ Up Pretty Kitty Stamp Set.  I also used the beautiful Lovely Lipstick Foil Sheets that are free with a $50 order during Sale-A-Bration.  You get 8 sheets of this gorgeous paper, 4 Lovely Lipstick and 4 Grapefruit Grove.  Get it before supplies run out.

For my card today I joined Watercooler Wednesday challenge #206. Be sure to stop by to see everyone’s projects and to play along.  Here is their challenge.

I started by layering a panel of the Lovely Lipstick Foil Sheet and a panel of Animal Expedition Designer Series Paper on a Lemon Lime Twist card base.  I decided where I wanted the peek-a-boo circle and placed my Layering Circles Framelits Dies on top of the card front.  Using my Big Shot I ran it through all 3 layers, going through a couple of times to make sure it cut  all the way through.  I adhered the Lovely Lipstick Foil Sheet on the Lemon Lime Twist card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and the Animal Expedition DSP on the Foil Sheet using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Using my Big Shot again, I cut the scallop circle from the Layering Circles Framelits Dies that was larger than the card front circle out of Lovely Lipstick Foil Sheet.  I adhered the scallop circle over the card front circle using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the dog with balloon image from the Bella and Friends stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the image in using my Call Me Clover, Calypso Coral, Crumb Cake, Granny Apple Green, Mango Melody, Pool Party and Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I then fussy cut the image using my Paper Snips.

I adhered the dog to the right of the circle using Stampin’ Dimensionals and the bird just under the circle using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I stamped the sentiment from the Pretty Kitty stamp set in Berry Burst Ink on a strip of Whisper White cardstock and made a banner using my Triple Banner Punch.  I adhered the banner to the left side of the card front using Snail.

On the inside I stamped the kitty in the flower-pot image from the Pretty Kitty stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a Whisper White panel.  I lined it up and stamped it so that it would be peeking through the card front circle.  I colored the kitty in using my Call Me Clover, Calypso Coral, Mango Melody, Petal Pink, Pool Party, Rich Razzleberry and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Berry Burst mat using Snail and adhered it to the inside of the Lemon Lime Twist card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I stamped the sentiment from the Pretty Kitty stamp set on a scrap of Whisper White cardstock in Berry Burst Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using the oval from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.  I cut a scalloped oval from the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies, that was just larger than the stitched oval, out of the Lovely Lipstick Foil Sheet.  I adhered the stitched oval to the scalloped oval using Snail and adhered it to the inner liner using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the puppy and kitty image from the Bella and Friends and Pretty Kitty stamp sets on the front of the envelope.  I colored them in the same as I did for the card.  I adhered a piece of Animal Expedition 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.
