Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Mosaic Birthday for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday.  How was everyone’s week?  Has anyone had time to go out shopping this week?  I still haven’t had time and with all the crazy drivers out, I’m not sure I want to even go out.  I’m hoping to get to the store today at one point in between watching my little nephews and going to work.

For today’s fun fold this one might be a little tough to explain.  I’m going to do my best and if anyone has any questions, please contact me and I will try to explain a little better.  My niece wanted me to make her father-in-law a birthday card using the Stampin’ Up! Mosaic Mood Specialty Designer Series Paper.  I made this card, but told her it’s way to feminine to give to him.  Here’s my card.

I started with a panel of Garden Green cardstock and made the following scores on it.  I scored at 3 1/4″ down to 1″ from the bottom, 6″ down to 1″ from the bottom and 5 1/2″ up 1″ from the bottom.  I turned the cardstock in my Paper Trimmer and cut from 3 1/4″ to 8 1/4″, 1″ from the bottom.  I realized after I was finished with the card that I forgot to take a picture to show you how it should look.

I adhered a panel of the Mosaic Mood Specialty Designer Series Paper to the front of the card using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the smaller of the 2 strips to the front card strip using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I fussy cut 2 of the humming birds out of the Mosaic Mood Specialty DSP and adhered them to the card front.  I adhered the bottom one using Glue Dots and the top one using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Birthdays Cling Stamp Set in Garden Green Ink on a scrap of Very Vanilla cardstock.  I cut the sentiment out using the smallest Rectangle Stitched Die and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I fussy cut some yellow roses from the Mosaic Mood Specialty DSP and adhered it to the back panel of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and trimmed any extra that was hanging over.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Well Said Cling Stamp Set in the center of a Very Vanilla panel.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to the inside of the Garden Green card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I adhered a strip of the Mosaic Mood Specialty DSP to the envelope front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and a panel to the envelope flap using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you enjoyed my card and will give it a try.  Hope you all have a wonderful weekend  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Little Ladybug For Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends. Welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by. This week we had a Sketch Challenge. Be sure to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects. I’m continuing with my quick and easy cards for this week.  My card today is for my daughter who was just accepted to the Forensic Chemistry Program at Kean University.  I am so proud of her and I wanted to make a card to let her know and congratulate her.   Here’s what I came up with for the sketch.

Here is our sketch for this week.

My colors were inspired by Inspire. Create Challenge #058.  Here are their colors.

I started by adhering a panel of Cherry Cobbler Regals 6″ X 6″ Designer Series Paper to a Whisper White card base.

I stamped the flower and butterfly image from the Stampin’ Up! Little Ladybug Host Cling Stamp Set In Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a small panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I colored the ladybug image in using my Light Basic Black, Cherry Cobbler and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I colored the leaves and stem of the flower in using my Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I colored the flower in using my Aqua Painter and Blushing Bride Ink.  On a scrap of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the same ladybug image from the Little Ladybug stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. I only colored in the left wing using my Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blend Markers. I fussy cut the wing out using my Paper Snips. I adhered the wing to the artwork using a Stampin’ Dimensional to give a little extra dimension to the ladybug.  I added a little Clear Wink of Stella to the flower center to give a little sparkle.  I adhered the artwork to a panel of Blushing Bride cardstock using Snail.

On a strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Little Ladybug stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I sponged the edges of the strip using my Cherry Cobbler Ink and a Sponge Dauber.  I adhered the sentiment to the bottom of the artwork using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Cherry Cobbler Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the artwork.

On the inside I stamped the flower image from the Little Ladybug stamp set in Blushing Bride Ink, stamping off once, to the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the ladybug image from the Little Ladybug stamp set on the bottom of the panel  in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored it in using my Light Basic Black, Cherry Cobbler and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Strong & Beautiful Cling Stamp Set over the flower image in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Blushing Bride mat using Snail and then 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 flower and ladybug images from the Little Ladybug stamp set on the envelope front and colored them in using my Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of Cherry Cobbler Regals 6″ X 6″ DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Best Dressed Beautiful You CAS Card

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  It’s 1 week until Christmas.  If you haven’t gotten things done, today’s a great day to get going.   I have a half day off this week to try to get anything else done that I have to do. I don’t know how Christmas got here so quickly, but it did and I just have to go with it.

For today I have a quick and easy card for you showcasing one of the new Designer Series Papers from the New 2020 Mini Catalog.  Here’s my card.

I started by adhering a panel of the new Best Dressed 6″ X 6″ Designer Series Paper to a Blackberry Bliss mat using Snail.  I adhered the matted panel to a Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped the 2 sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Beautiful You Cling Stamp Set in Blackberry Bliss Ink below the matted panel.

I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels which I colored using my Dark Blackberry Bliss Stampin’ Blends Marker.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Beautiful You stamp set in Blackberry Bliss Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the dancing woman image from the Beautiful You stamp set in Blackberry Bliss Ink, stamping off 4 times, over the sentiment.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Blackberry Bliss 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 the dancing woman image from the Beautiful You stamp set on the envelope front in Blackberry Bliss Ink, stamping off once.  I adhered a panel of the Best Dressed 6″X6″ 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! Forever Blossoms Wedding Sneak Peek

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  How has everyone’s week started off?  One week from today is Christmas Eve, yikes!!  Have you gotten you shopping done, baking done, cards mailed.  You all know I got my baking done.  My cards just went in the mail (here’s hoping they get to everyone on time).  Shopping??? Well, I haven’t really gotten any done.  I’ve sent my husband out to pick things up, guess that’s next on my list of things to do.  I’m really running out of time here.

For today I have another sneak peek for you using the Stampin’ Up! Forever Blossoms Bundle.  When I saw this set in the New 2020 Mini Catalog, I just knew I had to have it.  My son needs a wedding card for New Years Day, so I thought I’d play around with this bundle.  Here’s my card.

I started by embossing a Whisper White card front using the new Parisian Flourish 3D Embossing Folder.  I stamped the large floral image from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Blossoms Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink twice on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I colored the image in using my Purple Posy and Soft Seafoam Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the images out using the Cherry Blossoms Dies.

I adhered the cut images to the embossed Whisper White panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue letting them hang off on either side.  I cut the pieces that were hanging off the card front to make them even.  I adhered the card front to a Soft Seafoam mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I stamped the sentiment from the Forever Blossoms stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a thin strip of Whisper White cardstock.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered the matted card front to a Purple Posy card base using Stampin’ Dimensional.  I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the large floral image from the Forever Blossoms stamp set in Soft Seafoam Ink on a panel of Whisper White.  I stamped the sentiment from the Forever Blossoms stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink over the floral image in the center of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Soft Seafoam mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Purple Posy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I added a couple more Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the inside.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the large floral image from the Forever Blossoms stamp set in Soft Seafoam Ink on the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of Purple Posy 2019-2021 In-Color 6″ X 6″ Designer Series Paper to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card.  Stamp Set, Dies and Embossing Folder used for today’s card will be available in just 2 1/2 short weeks. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Come Sail Away to a New Adventure

Good Monday morning my stamping friends.  How was everyone’s weekend?  I got all my baking done and now I just have to make up all the platters that I give out.  I like to make up all the platters at once so that I’m not pulling containers in and out since there are so many.  The final count was 25 different kinds and 1820 cookies not including the bar cookies.  I have to admit, by Saturday night I was wiped.

For today’s card, my husband asked me to make a card for a co-worker of his that is leaving for a new job.  I decided to bring out some DSP from the Annual Catalog and came up with a really quick card that he loved.  I even let him help design the card, just a little though.  Here’s my card.

I started by adhering a panel of Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper to a Seaside Spray mat using Snail.  I wrapped a piece of Night of Navy/Sahara Sand Bakers Twine around the matted DSP twice and tie a square knot.

I cut the sentiment out of a scrap piece of Seaside Spray cardstock using the Sweet Silhouette Dies.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered the card front to a Sahara Sand card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I adhered another panel of the Come Sail Away DSP to the card base using Multipurpose Liquid glue.  I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Well Said Cling Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the DSP using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I adhered a strip of Come Sail Away DSP to the envelope front and a panel 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 Timeless Tulips Sneak Peek for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday the 13th morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday.  How was everyone’s week?  I’ve got all my cookie doughs mixed, some of my bar cookies made and today and tomorrow I bake everything off.  My house will have the wonderful aroma of freshly baked cookies for the next couple days.  Now to have the willpower not to eat them.

For today’s I made a card for you doing Simple Stamping .  I never do simple, but I thought I’d give it a try.  All I used was Stamp, Ink and Paper.  There are no layers, except for the sentiment and one thin strip.  Here’s my card.

My colors were inspired by the Color Throwdown Challenge #573.  Here are their colors.

I played along with the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #415.  Here is their sketch.

I started by folding my Thick Whisper White card base at 4 1/4″ & 2″ (a little different than a regular Z-Fold).

I adhered a thin strip of Lovely Lipstick cardstock to the left edge of the card base, on the fold, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  On the 2″ card front I stamped the script image from the Stampin’ Up! Very Versailles Cling Stamp Set twice in Granny Apple Green Ink stamping off once.  I stamped the sentiment from the Very Versailles stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink on a strip of Whisper White cardstock.  I adhered the sentiment strip to a Lovely Lipstick mat using Snail.

I stamped the tulip stems and leaves from the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips Photopolymer Stamp Set in Granny Apple Green Ink on the right of the card base.  I stamped the medium and small tulip images from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Lovely Lipstick Ink on the stems.  I adhered the sentiment, so that it went across the stems, on the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Very Versailles stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink behind the fold.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the tulip stems and leaves from the Timeless Tulips stamp set on the envelope front.  I stamped the medium and small tulip image from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Lovely Lipstick Ink on the stems.  I stamped the script image from the Very Versailles stamp set on the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card.  The Timeless Tulips Stamp Set will be available for purchase on January 3, 2020 from the New January-June Mini Catalog.  Happy Stamping.

Stampin’ Up! Breathtaking Bouquet Sneak Peek

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers. Welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop.  How has everyone’s week been?  The weekend is almost upon us, is anyone making plans.  By the time you read this I will probably be elbow deep in butter, sugar and flour.  I’m starting my cookie mixing today.  I’ll be mixing all day and tomorrow and Friday I’ll be baking all day.  I will actually be getting a little bit of help this year.  My daughter doesn’t have as many in person finals, so she will be by my side for part of the time helping with the mixing and shaping of cookie dough.

If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for taking the time to stop by. This week we had a Color Challenge. Be sure to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects.  I have another sneak peek for you today using another new stamp set from the New Mini Catalog.  This is the set I won with Prize Patrol at OnStage in November.  I’ve made a Triple Time Card for you using it.   Here’s my card using our colors.

Here are the colors we had for this week.  I chose Gorgeous Grape for my choice color.

I started by layering the 3 Whisper White panels on top of one another making sure to center them with one another.  Using my Stamparatus I stamped the image from the Stampin’ Up! Breathtaking Bouquet Cling Stamp Set (available Jan 3, 2020) in Smoky Slate Ink on all 3 panels at once.

I adhered each of the pieces of artwork to their matching Gorgeous Grape mats using Snail.  I adhered the smallest matted piece to the top of the medium matted piece using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I wrapped a piece of the Silver 3/8″ Metallic Edged Ribbon around the artwork and tied a bow.  I adhered the largest artwork panel to the Gorgeous Grape card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the other panels to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small piece of Vellum Cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the soon to retire Stampin’ Up! Beauty & Joy Photopolymer Stamp Set in Gorgeous Grape Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using the smallest rectangle from the Stitched Rectangle Dies.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using tiny dots of Multipurpose Liquid Glue in the corners of the rectangle.  I added a few Gorgeous Grape Noble Peacock Rhinestones to the sentiment and the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the new Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips Photopolymer Stamp Set (available Jan 3, 2020), in Gorgeous Grape Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the top part of the Breathtaking Bouquet stamp on the bottom of the panel in Smoky Slate Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Smoky Slate mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Gorgeous Grape card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I adhered a thin strip of the Brights 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to the bottom front of the envelope.  I adhered a panel of the Brights 6 X 6 DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for visiting my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Now that you’ve seen my card, take a minute to hop through all our projects today.
