Stampin’ Up Over The Moon Sneak Peek Fun Fold Card

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s week?  Hopefully you all have a long weekend to look forward to.

For today’s card I have a sneak peek for you from the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog and it’s a fun fold card.  I’ve used the soon to be available Stampin’ Up Over The Moon Cling Stamp Set.  I’ve never been a huge cow fan, but I absolutely love this set.  I think it is just the cutest set and I just love the puns.  I can’t help but smile when I look at the cow images in the set.  Here’s my card.

I’ve joined in with 3 challenges for today’s card.  1st is the Festive Friday Challenge #034.  Here is their challenge.

Next I played along with Global Design Project #190.  Here is their sketch challenge.

I’ve also joined in with Sunday Stamps Challenge #205.  Here are their colors.

I started by adhering a piece of Sahara Sand Neutrals 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper, which will be retiring June 3rd, to the inside and front panel of a Sahara Sand card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped one of the cow images from the Over The Moon stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I colored the cow in using my Light Basic Black, Real Red and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers.    I stamped the sentiment from Over The Moon stamp set on a diagonal in the top left corner of the Whisper White panel in Smoky Slate Ink.  I adhered a strip of Real Red cardstock along the bottom of the Whisper White panel using Snail.  I adhered a thin strip of Basic Black cardstock along the bottom edge of the Real Red strip using Snail.  I stamped the moon image from the Over The Moon stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a scrap of Whisper White cardstock and fussy cut it using my Paper Snips.  I applied Wink Of Stella on the moon to make it shimmer then adhered it on the bottom of the Whisper White panel using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Crumb Cake mat using Snail then to a Basic Black mat using Snail.  I adhered the matted artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals, only on the left half of the artwork.

I adhered another piece of the Sahara Sand Neutrals 6 X 6 DSP to the inside smaller side of the Sahara Sand card base.  I stamped another one of the cow images from the Over The Moon stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink, stamping off 3 times to get a very light image, on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I stamped the sentiment from the Over The Moon stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink over the cow image, in the center of the Whisper White panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Basic Black mat using Snail and then to the inside of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, making sure it was under the front panel.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Wisper White Envelope.  I stamped the cow image from the Over The Moon stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the front of the envelope.  I colored it in the same as I did for the card.  I also stamped the thought bubble from the Over The Moon stamp set above the cow image and colored the heart in with my Real Red Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of Sahara Sand Neutrals 6 X 6 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.  The Stampin’ Up Over The Moon Stamp Set will be available on June 4th for purchase, that’s in just 11 short days.  I hope everyone has a wonderful long Holiday Weekend and you have fun with whatever plans you have.  Happy stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Retirement List Clarification

It looks like every single stamp set from the 2018-19 Annual Catalog is being retired and that isn’t the case, the carryover sets are being transitioned to Cling Mount.

The stamp sets offered in clear-mount or wood-mount in the 2018–2019 annual catalog that are carrying over into the 2019–2020 annual catalog will be offered in clear-mount and/or wood-mount until existing inventory has been depleted or until June 4, 2019 (whichever comes first).

If the inventory is depleted, you will be notified of the automatic switch to cling when placing an order for that stamp set. This means that you may end up purchasing select cling stamp sets (in carryover artwork) before they can be ordered from the catalog!  All carryover rubber stamp sets will be available in cling medium only (with the exception of background stamps in North America) beginning June 4, 2019.

Stampin’ Up Butterfly Wishes Friendship Card Sneak Peek

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to today’s blog.  How is everyone doing?  We’re past the halfway mark for the week and on our way to a long holiday weekend.  Is anyone making any plans? Anyone going to or having a picnic?  I have a picnic every year celebrating my daughter’s birthday.  She was a Memorial Weekend baby.  This year she will be 21!  I don’t where the years have gone.

For today I have another sneak peek for you.  In case anyone is interested, we only have 12 days till the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog goes live, YAY!!  Is everyone’s wish list as long as mine?  I used the new Stampin’ Up Butterfly Wishes Cling Stamp Set for my card today.  It’s such a beautiful set.  Here’s my card.

I’ve joined in with the CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge #322.  Here are their colors.

I started with a Thick Whisper White card base and stamped the branch image from the Butterfly Wishes stamp set in the top right .  I used my Coastal Cabana, Pumpkin Pie and Soft Suede Stampin’ Write Markers to color the stamp in.  This is a great way to get multiple colors on your stamp without having to color the image in.

I then took a panel of Pumpkin Pie cardstock and cut it on a diagonal.  I stamped the bottom with the sentiment from the Butterfly Wishes stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I adhered the Pumpkin Pie panel to the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a piece of Daffodil Delight cardstock I stamped 2 large and 1 small butterflies from the Butterfly Wishes stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I punched the butterflies out using the Butterfly Duet Punch.  I adhered the butterflies to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and bent their wings up a little.  I added a few Coastal Cabana Glitter Enamel Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped another one of the butterfly images from the Butterfly Wishes stamp set in Pumpkin Pie Ink, stamping off 3 times to get a light image, on a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the Butterfly Wishes stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink over the butterfly image.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pumpkin Pie mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped a couple of the butterfly images from the Butterfly Wishes stamp set on the envelope front in Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie Inks.  I adhered a piece of Daffodil Delight Brights     6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to the envelope flap.  There was no DSP used on the card, but I figured since this paper will be retiring as of June 3rd, why not use it.  I also stamped a butterfly from the Butterfly Wishes stamp set on a scrap of Pumpkin Pie cardstock in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, punched it out using the Butterfly Duet Punch and adhered it below the envelope flap using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try.  The Butterfly Wishes stamp set will be available June 4th for purchase.  It’s truely a beautiful set.  I just love the sentiments from it and the fonts.  The Butterfly Duet Punch is available now as part of a bundle with the Stampin’ Up Butterfly Gala Stamp Set or you can purchase it individually.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up Just Because CAS Thinking of You Card

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  How is your week going?  We’re halfway through and the weekend is right around the corner.

For today I have a quick and easy card for you using the soon to retire Stampin’ Up Just Because Host Stamp Set.  Here’s my card for today.

I joined in with the Fab Friday sketch challenge #163.  Here is their sketch.

I also played along with Inspire. Create color challenge #043.  Here are their colors.

I started by adhering a panel of the soon to retire Wood Textures Designer Series Paper to a Poppy Parade card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped the one of the images from the Stampin’ Up Just Because Host Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I colored the image in using my Granny Apple Green and Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the artwork to a Granny Apple Green mat uisng Snail.  Host stamp sets can be earned with Stampin’ Rewards which you earn with qualifying parties of orders of $150 or more.  Each catalog has a select few sets that are only available with Stampin’ Rewards.  If you have any questions on how to earn them, please feel free to contact me.

I adhered a strip of Pumpkin Pie cardstock to the back of a banner made from the soon to retire Brights 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper using Snail.  I adhered the banner to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the matted artwork over the banner using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the top of the leafy image from the Just Because Host stamp set on the bottom of a Whisper White panel in Granny Apple Green Ink, stamping off twice.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Well Said Stamp Set in Granny Apple Green Ink in the center of the Whisper White panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Granny Apple Green mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Poppy Parade card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the plant from the Just Because Host stamp set on the envelope front and colored it in the same as I did for the card.  I adhered a piece of the Wood Textures 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 Beautiful You, Strong and Beautiful Graduation Card

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  How is everyone doing today?

For today I used one of my all time favorite stamp sets for a graduation card for you.  My niece has graduated earning her Masters Degree and I wanted to send her a special card letting her know how proud I am of her.  I used a few items that will be retiring as of June 3rd for my card.  Take a look.

I’ve played along with a couple challenges today.  First off is the CAS(E) This Sketch challenge #322.  Here is their sketch.

Next I played along with the Paper Craft Crew challenge #337.  Here is their challenge.

I joined in with the Stampin’ Up Only Challenges #223.  Their challenge is ‘Anything Spring’. This includes spring holidays, birthdays, graduations, babies!

I also joined in with the CAS on Friday Challenge #158.  Their challenge is ‘Use Polkadots’.

I started by adhering a panel of the soon to retire Brights 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Basic Black card bae using Snail.  I stamped the dancing woman image from the Stampin’ Up Beautiful You Clear Stamp Set on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I colored her in using my Light Basic Black, Ivory and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the artwork to a panel of Whisper White cardstock to give it a little color on color edge using Snail.  I then adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I cut a tiny square to look like a graduation cap out of Basic Black cardstock.  I took a small piece of Whisper White Bakers Twine and pulled it apart to get very thin strands to make a tassel on the cap, tied it in a knot and adhered it using a Glue Dot. I adhered a Metallic Pearl in the center of the tassel.  I adhered the graduation cap to the top of the woman’s head using a Stampin’ Dimensional.

Using my Big Shot and the soon to retire Celebrate You Thinlits, I cut out the celebrate in Basic Black and Poppy Parade cardstocks.  I adhered the Basic Black on top or the Poppy Parade, so that it had the shadow look, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the sentiment to the top of the artwork using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and thin strips of Stampin’ Dimensionals on the 2 ends.

On the inside I stamped the flowers from the new Stampin’ Up A Little Lace Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in 3 of the corners of a Whisper White panel.  I colored them in using my Granny Apple Green and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends Markers and added a little Rhinestone Basic Jewel in each flower.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Strong & Beautiful Cling Stamp Set in the center of the Whisper White panel in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  Using my Big Shot I cut out the amazing and you from the Celebrate You Thinlits in Poppy Parade cardstock using a piece of the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet behind it.  The Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets are great when you have very thin images to be glued down and don’t want to take a chance of making a mess with other adhesives.  I adhered the 2 sentiments above the stamped sentiment on the Whisper White panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Basic Black card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the flowers from the A Little Lace stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front.  I colored them in using my Granny Apple Green and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a piece of the Brights 6 X 6 DSP to the envelope flap.  I had to use a different pattern of DSP on the flap.  For the 1st time in all the years I’ve been making cards, I ran out of a DSP.  This has never happen to me.  The DSP usually retires before I have a chance to use it up.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try.  The Stampin’ Up Beautiful You Stamp Set and the Stampin’ Up Strong & Beautiful Stamp Set will be carrying over into the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog, but the Celebrate You Thinlits and the Brights 6 X 6 DSP will be retiring as of June 3rd.  The Stampin’ Up A Little Lace Stamp Set will be available June 4th for purchase.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Retirement List Clarification

It looks like every single stamp set from the 2018-19 Annual Catalog is being retired and that isn’t the case, the carryover sets are being transitioned to Cling Mount.

The stamp sets offered in clear-mount or wood-mount in the 2018–2019 annual catalog that are carrying over into the 2019–2020 annual catalog will be offered in clear-mount and/or wood-mount until existing inventory has been depleted or until June 4, 2019 (whichever comes first).

If the inventory is depleted, you will be notified of the automatic switch to cling when placing an order for that stamp set. This means that you may end up purchasing select cling stamp sets (in carryover artwork) before they can be ordered from the catalog!  All carryover rubber stamp sets will be available in cling medium only (with the exception of background stamps in North America) beginning June 4, 2019.

Stampin’ Up Daisy Lane Sneak Peek

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s weekend?  We ended up having a beautiful weekend here.  No rain, except for when we were sleeping, YAY.  Looks like spring might finally be here.

For today’s card I’m giving you a little sneak peek of a new stamp set coming in the new 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.  It’s the Stampin’ Up Daisy Lane Cling Stamp Set.  It coordinates with the Stampin’ Up Daisy Delight Stamp Set that we already have and uses the same Daisy Punch for both.  Here’s my card.

I’ve joined in with the Color Throwdown Color Challenge #543.  Here are their colors.

I’ve also joined in with the CAS Colours & Sketches Sketch Challenge #321.  I have to admit, this sketch was a real challenge for me.  Here is their sketch.

I started with a Basic Gray card front and ran it through my Big Shot using the Subtles Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder to give the background a little texture.  I adhered it to a Pool Party card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I took a piece of Neutrals 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper and cut it on a diagonal from corner to corner and then turned it slightly in my Paper Trimmer and cut it again from corner to corner.  I did the same thing with a piece of Pool Party cardstock.  I adhered the long triangular cuts of DSP to the same Pool Party mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue so that I would have a little wiggle room to center it properly.  I adhered the 2 matted triangles to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue having the smallest part of the triangles meet.

On a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped 3 of the larger daisies from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Pool Party Ink.  I punched them out using the Daisy Punch.  I arranged the daisies on top of one another meeting in the center and adhered them using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the daisy to the center of the triangles using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Old Olive Ink and immediately sprinkled it with Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder then I heat set it using my Heat Tool.  I cut the sentiment out using my Big Shot and the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies.  I edged the oval using my Old Olive Stampin’ Write Marker and adhered it just under the daisy on the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I colored a few Pearl Basic Jewels using my Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Marker and then adhered them to the center of the daisy.

On the inside I stamped the stem image from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Old Olive Ink, stamping off 3 times to get a very light image, on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I stamped another one of the daisy images from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Pool Party Ink, stamping off twice, on top of the stem.  I stamped the sentiment from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Old Olive Ink on top of the floral image.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Basic Gray mat using Snail and then adhered it to the inside of the Pool Party card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the stem from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Old Olive Ink and one of the daisy images from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Pool Party Ink on the envelope front.  I adhered a piece of the Neutrals 6 X 6 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.  The Daisy Lane Stamp Set will be available June 4th along with lots of other beautiful new stamp sets from the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up Floral Essence Sneak Peek

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers.  Well the weekend is here ready or not.  Has anyone made any fun plans?  I’m really hoping, in between working, to supervise getting some of my flowers in the ground.  I’m still with 1 arm and can’t seem to get the digging down properly yet.  I’ve mastered quite a bit 1 handed, most importantly card making.

So I have a little sneak peek for you today.  I’ve used a new stamp set coming in the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.  If you don’t have a demonstrator and would like a catalog, drop me a line and I’d be happy to send one out to you.  Here’s my card for today.

I’ve used a tiny bit of old and a whole lot of new on my card.  I’ve also played along with Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge #314.  Here’s their sketch.

I started with a panel of the soon to retire Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper and adhered it to a Blueberry Bushel card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered a panel of the gorgeous new Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper to a mat of Blueberry Bushel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the matted DSP to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Itty Bitty Birthdays Cling Stamp Set in Blueberry Bushel Ink to the left of the matted DSP.

On a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the flower from the new Stampin’ Up Floral Essence Photopolymer Stamp Set in Blueberry Bushel Ink.  I stamped the inside of the flowers in Crushed Curry Ink.  I stamped the leaf images from the same stamp set in Mossy Meadow and Old Olive Inks.  I colored the flowers in using my Balmy Blue Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I colored the leaf image in using my Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I fussy cut the flowers and the smaller leaf image out using my Paper Snips.  I punched the larger leaf image out using my Leaf Punch.  I arranged the flowers and leaves how I liked them on the card front and adhered them with Glue Dots and Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped a couple flowers from the Floral Essence stamp set on the bottom corner of a Whisper White panel in Blueberry Bushel Ink using the masking technique.  I stamped the leaves from the same stamp set in Old Olive Ink and the flower centers in Crushed Curry Ink.  I colored the flowers in using my Balmy Blue Stampin’ Blends Markers and the leaves in using my Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set in Blueberry Bushel Ink in the center of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Blueberry Bushel card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the flowers from the Floral Essence stamp set on the envelope front and colored them in the same as I did for the card.  I adhered a panel of the Perennial Essence DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card.  These products will be available on June 4th if you are interested in them.  It’s truly a beautiful suite.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up Love What You Do

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers.  How is everyone’s week going?  We finally have a couple days without rain.  As of Tuesday my husband was telling me it rained 27 of the past 29 days.  We really need to dry up a little around here.

For today’s card I’ve made a pretty quick and easy one.  I used the soon to retire How Sweet It Is Designer Series Paper.  Here’s my card.

I joined in with a couple challenges with my card today.  First off is Atlantic Hearts Sketch challenge #316.  Here’s their sketch.

Next is the Global Design Project Color Challenge #189.  Here are their colors.

I started with a Gorgeous Grape card front and adhered a panel of How Sweet It Is Designer Series Paper, which will be retired as of June 3rd, to it using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered a strip of Pineapple Punch cardstock to a mat of Gorgeous Grape cardstock using Snail.  I adhered the matted strip to the center of the card front using Snail.  I wrapped a piece of Coastal Cabana/Granny Apple Green 3/8″ Reversible Ribbon (retiring as of June 3rd) around the matted strip and the card front and secured it in the back using Snail.  I adhered the card front to a Coastal Cabana card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the image from the Stampin’ Up Love What You Do Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the flowers in using my Pineapple Punch Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the image out using my Big Shot and the circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I cut a scalloped circle out of Gorgeous Grape card stock using the Layering Circles Dies.  I adhered the stitched circle to the scalloped circle using Snail and then adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up A Big Thank You Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I made a banner of the sentiment strip and adhered it to the circle using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a couple of the Glitter Enamel Dots to the banner.

On the inside I stamped the flower image from the Love What You Do stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the bottom corners of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped them with the small watermark stamp from the same stamp set in Pineapple Punch Ink.  I stamped the large watermark image from the same stamp set in Pineapple Punch Ink in the center of the panel stamping off once.  I stamped the sentiment from the A Big Thank You stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink over the watermark.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Gorgeous Grape mat using Snail, then adhered it to the inside of the Coastal Cabana card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the flowers from the Love What You Do stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front and back.  I used the small watermark stamp from the same stamp set to color them in with Pineapple Punch Ink.  I adhered a panel of the How Sweet It Is 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!!
