Stampin’ Up! Tropical Oasis Birthday

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  How has everyone’s week started off?  Hope it’s going good so far.

I have a quick and easy masculine card for you today using some of the new Designer Series Paper from the January-June 2020 Mini Catalog.  Here’s my card.

I started by stamping the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Birthdays Cling Stamp Set in Versamark Ink on the bottom of an Early Espresso card front.  I immediately sprinkled it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I adhered a panel of Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper to the card front using Snail.

I wrapped a piece of 5/16″ Braided Burlap Trim around the bottom of the DSP on the card front and tied a knot.  I adhered the card front to an Early Espresso card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a Tropical Oasis Trinket to the left of the sentiment using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tropical Cling Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Early Espresso mat using Snail.  I adhered a panel of Tropical Oasis DSP to the inside of the Early Espresso card base using Snail.  I adhered the matted panel to the inside of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  On a small piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the palm tree image from the Timeless Tropical stamp set using Pear Pizzazz and Soft Suede Stampin’ Write Markers.  I cut the image out using the In The Tropic Dies.  I adhered the palm tree to the side of the sentiment using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the palm tree image from the Timeless Tropical stamp set twice on the envelope front colored  with my Pear Pizzazz and Soft Suede Stampin’ Write Markers.  I adhered a panel of Tropical Oasis 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! Best Dressed Peaceful Moments

Good Monday morning my stamping friends.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Did anyone do anything fun?  We had a little bit of snow here, but by Sunday afternoon it was gone.  Every winter I ask for one big snow storm, not these little ones that the snow disappears in a day.  I like to get one storm with about 1-2 feet of snow, enough that I just have to stay in for a day and craft.  Last year we never got one, just extremely cold.

For today’s card I used some of the new Designer Series Paper from the 2020 January-June Mini Catalog and an embellishment from the Sale-A-Bration Catalog.  Here’s my card.

I joined in with TGIF Challenge #247.  Here is their theme.

I started by adhering a panel of the Best Dressed 6X6 Designer Series Paper to a Petal Pink mat using Snail.  I then adhered it to a Lovely Lipstick mat using Snail.

I embossed a panel of Whisper White cardstock using the Parisian Flourish 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the embossed panel to a Petal Pink mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I then adhered it to a Lovely Lipstick mat using Snail.  I wrapped a piece of Bermuda Bay Bakers Twine from the Sale-A-Bration Metallic Baker’s Twine & Sequins Combo Pack around the matted card front twice and tied a bow.  I adhered the card front to a Whisper White card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Moments Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using the Painted Labels Dies.  I edged the die cut sentiment using my Bermuda Bay Stampin’ Write Marker.  I adhered the sentiment to the artwork using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and added a Lovely Lipstick Happiness Blooms Enamel Dot to the sentiment.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Peaceful Moments stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I fussy cut some of the shoes from the Best Dressed 6 X 6 DSP and adhered them to the panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Lovely Lipstick mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I adhered a strip of the Best Dressed 6 X 6 DSP to the bottom of 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! Make A Splash for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday.  How was everyone’s week?  Are you ready for the weekend?  I’ll be working all weekend, but I’m hoping to find time to do a little crafting.  I’m hearing of a bit of snow coming this weekend and that’s the perfect time to craft for me.  What do you have plans on doing?

We are 2 weeks into the new January-June 2020 Mini Catalog and I thought I’d offer you an extra bonus for 1 week only.

I will send you FREE the Peaceful Poppies Elements with the purchase of the Stampin’ Up! Painted Poppies Cling Stamp Set or Painted Poppies Bundle.  This is only available from me starting today, Friday January 17, 2020 through Friday January 24, 2020.  This is in addition to my other rewards you can find here.  If you purchase the Painted Poppies Bundle you not only receive the free gifts from me, you also get 10% off the bundle and qualify for a Sale-A-Bration item.   You might not want to pass this offer up!!

For today I have another pretty easy fun fold for you.  While I was on vacation my Stampin’ Up! order arrived.  I couldn’t wait to dig in to see what I got.  I used one of my new sets for today’s card that is available only to Hosts.  Take a look.

My colors were inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge #330.  Here are their colors.

I started with a Whisper White card base scored and folded at 4 1/4″.  I scored from the top left corner (by the fold) to the half way mark (2 3/4″) on the right edge and folded the corner to the front of the card.  I embossed a Pretty Peacock card front using the High Seas 3D Embossing Folder.  I then cut the panel on an angle starting at the top left corner and cut to the center (2 3/4″) of the right side.  I adhered the embossed panel to the front of the Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small panel of Thick Whisper White cardstock I stamped the fishbowl image from the Stampin’ Up! Make A Splash Host Photopolymer Stamp Set in Pretty Peacock Ink.  I stamped the water edge image from the Make A Splash stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink along the top of the fishbowl.  I stamped the sand/gravel image from the Make A Splash stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink along the bottom of the fishbowl.  I stamped the 3 greenery images from the Make A Splash stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink.  The center one I stamped full strength, the one on the left I stamped off once and the one on the right I stamped off twice.  I stamped 2 of the fish images from the Make A Splash stamp set in Flirty Flamingo Ink.  I stamped the bubbles from the Make A Splash stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink, stamping off twice, by each of the fish.  I fussy cut the fish bow using my Paper Snips.

I adhered the fishbowl to the corner overlapping piece using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added 3 Rhinestone Basic Jewels which I colored using my Dark Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blends Marker, above the fishbowl.

I adhered a panel of Pretty Peacock cardstock to the inside of the Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On a thin strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Make A Splash stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink and adhered it to the top right.  For the inner liner I cut a panel of Whisper White cardstock on an angle.  I stamped the sentiment from the Make A Splash stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink in the center of the panel.  I stamped the 2 fish images from the Make A Splash stamp set on either side of the sentiment in Flirty Flamingo Ink.  I stamped the 3 greenery images from the Make A Splash stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink along the bottom of the panel.  I stamped a tiny bit of the sand/gravel image from the Make A Splash stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink along the bottom of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the Pretty Peacock panel using Snail.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the fish images from the Make A Splash stamp set on the envelope front and flap in Flirty Flamingo Ink.  I stamped the greenery images from the Make A Splash stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink along the bottom of the envelope front.  I stamped part of the sand/gravel image from the Make A Splash stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink along the bottom front of the envelope.  I stamped the bubble and water edge images from Make A Splash stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink on the envelope front and flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try.  This stamp set is available when you host a qualifying party or you place an order of $150 or more.  You earn Stampin’ Rewards that can be used for free and discounted products.  If you are interested in more information, please feel free to contact me.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Forever Lovely Blossoms 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.

Here is the sketch we had to work from.

Here’s what I came up with for the sketch.

I started by embossing a Pool Party card front using the Parisian Flourish 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the embossed panel to a Pool Party  card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered 2 panels of Parisian Blossoms Specialty Designer Series Paper to Petal Pink mats using Snail.  I adhered the bottom panel to the card front on an angle using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the top panel straight on the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut a stitched heart using the Stitched Be Mine Dies out of a Pool Party panel.  I cut the Petal Pink scallop heart out of the Stitched Be Mine Dies.  I put the hearts together and flipped them over.  I added Stampin’ Dimensionals between the seams to hold the hearts together and adhered it to the card front.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Lovely Photopolymer Stamp Set in Pool Party Ink on a thin strip of Whisper White cardstock.  I adhered the sentiment strip on a Petal Pink mat using Snail and then to the card front overlapping the heart using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the heart and sentiment.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Forever Lovely stamp set in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the small flower image from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Blossoms Cling Stamp Set around the sentiment in Petal Pink Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Petal Pink mat using Snail and then 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 a cluster of the small flower image from the Forever Blossoms stamp set in Petal Pink Ink on the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of the Parisian Blossoms Specialty 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.

Stampin’ Up! Tropical Oasis Chic Thank You Card

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  How is everyone’s week going?  Well it’s back to work for me today.  After getting home early Tuesday morning (2am), and spending the day unpacking, doing laundry and running for groceries, it’s time to get back into the normal routine and relax.  Vacations are great, but I love my daily routine days.

For today’s card I made you a really quick one featuring the beautiful Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper.  I think this paper is absolutely gorgeous.  Really makes me want to go to Hawaii.  Here’s my card.

I started by adhering a panel of the Tropical Oasis DSP to a Pear Pizzazz mat using Snail.  I adhered the matted DSP to a So Saffron card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Tropical Chic Cling Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink.  I stamped one of the leaf images from the Tropical Chic stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink over the sentiment stamping off once.  I cut the sentiment out using the Stitched Nested Labels Dies.  I adhered a piece of the Whisper White 5/8″ Flax Ribbon across the center of the card front using Snail.  I adhered the sentiment over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the hibiscus image from the Tropical Chic stamp set in Lovely Lipstick Ink.  I cut the image out using the Tropical Dies.  I adhered the hibiscus to the end of the sentiment using a Glue Dot.  I added a couple Lovely Lipstick Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots to the sentiment.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Tropical Chic stamp set in Early Espresso Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the leaf image from the Tropical Chic stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on the left side of the panel once in full strength and twice stamped off.  I adhered another hibiscus flower that I had stamped from the Tropical Chic stamp set in Lovely Lipstick and cut out using the Tropical Dies using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.   I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pear Pizzazz mat using Snail and then to the inside of the So Saffron card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the leaf image from the Tropical Chic stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on the side and bottom of the envelope front, some stamped full strength and some stamped off.  I adhered a panel of the Tropical Oasis 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! Nine Lives Happy Tails for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  Well, we’re all safe at home and ready for a vacation from our vacation.  It was a long flight having 3 of us sick.  I love going away, but I can’t wait to get home.  My furry four legged little girl really missed us.  She was wiggling so much I thought she was going to take off with the way her tail was going.  She spent her week home with one of my daughter’s friends getting spoiled, but it’s not the same as having mom home with her.

Welcome to Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop. It’s the 2nd Tuesday of the month and you know what that means, Blog Hop Day!! If you are starting with me, be sure to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects. If you’ve hopped over from Amy Koenders blog, welcome to my blog and thank you for stopping by. The theme this month is “Love”. We can interpret this any way that we’d like.

For my card today I chose to use 2 of our animal stamp sets.  Here’s my card.

I started by adhering a panel of the Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper to a Rococo Rose card front using Snail.  I adhered a small strip of the Merry Merlot Neutrals 6″ X 6″ Designer Series Paper to the top of the Pressed Petals Specialty DSP using Snail.  I adhered the card front to a Rococo Rose card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped the outlined dog image from the Stampin’ Up! Happy Tails Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a Basic Gray cardstock panel.  I punched the dog out using the Dog Builder Punch.  I stamped the  outlined cat image from the Stampin’ Up! Nine Lives Photopolymer Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink on a panel of Crumb Cake cardstock.  I stamped the detail cat image from the Nine Lives stamp set in Soft Suede Ink over the outline image.  I punched the cat out using the Cat Punch.  I cut the stitched heart out of Rococo Rose cardstock using the Stitched Be Mine Dies.  I cut the scalloped heart out of Merry Merlot cardstock using the Stitched Be Mine Dies.  I stamped the sentiment from the Nine Lives stamp set in Merry Merlot Ink on a Whisper White strip of cardstock.  I made the sentiment into a banner using the Banner Triple Punch.

I adhered the stitched heart to the center of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the scalloped heart around the stitched heart using tiny dots of Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I snipped the cats tail off and adhered the cat to the heart using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the cats tail so that it hung down using a Glue Dot.  I adhered the dog slightly over the cat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the sentiment banner centered with the Neutrals DSP strip using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a Rococo Rose 2019-2021 In-Color Faceted Dot to the end of the banner.  I tied a small knot using the Rococo Rose 1/2″ Scalloped Edge Linen Ribbon and adhered it to the sentiment strip using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Meant To Be Cling Stamp Set in Merry Merlot Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the outlined cat image from the Nine Lives stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the bottom left side of the panel.  I stamped the detailed cat image from the Nine Lives stamp set in Soft Suede Ink over the outlined image.  I colored the cat in using my Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the ‘meow!’ sentiment from the Nine Lives stamp set in Merry Merlot Ink by the cat image.  I stamped the outlined dog image from the Happy Tails stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the bottom right of the panel.  I colored the dog in using my Basic Black Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the ‘ruff! ruff!’ sentiment from the Happy Tails stamp set in Merry Merlot Ink by the dog image.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Merry Merlot mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Rococo Rose card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the dog image from the Happy Tails stamp set and the cat image from the Nine Lives stamp set on the envelope front the same as I did for the inner liner of the card.  I adhered a panel of the Pressed Petals Specialty DSP to the envelope flap.
