Stampin’ Up! Animal Outings Under My Umbrella Baby Shower for Fun Fold Friday

Happy Valentine’s Day my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday.  How was everyone’s week? Is anyone doing anything special today or tonight?

A co-worker of mine asked me to make her a baby shower card for her daughter who is having her first baby.  The only thing she told me was to make it blue since they are having a boy.  So I pulled out something old and something new.  I used some of the new Designer Series Paper from the Coordination products.  Here’s what I came up with.

I joined in with Inspire. Create Challenge #062.  Here is their challenge for the week.

I started by adhering a panel of the Coordination Pleased As Punch Designer Series Paper to a Soft Seafoam mat using Snail.  I adhered the matted panel to a Whisper White mat using Snail and then to a Balmy Blue card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the Kangaroo image from the Stampin’ Up! Animal Outings Cling Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink.  I colored the image in using my Crumb Cake, Ivory and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the image out using the Animal Friends Dies.  I stamped the umbrella image on a panel of Subtle 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper in Soft Suede Ink.  I stamped the umbrella handle on a scrap of Soft Seafoam cardstock in Soft Suede Ink.  I punched the umbrella and the handle out using the Umbrella Builder Punch.

I used the 2nd largest circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies to cut a circle from Whisper White cardstock.  I adhered the stitched circle to a scallop circle which I cut using the Layering Circle Dies in Soft Seafoam cardstock using Snail.  I adhered the kangaroo to the circle using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the umbrella handle to the umbrella using a Glue Dot and adhered it to the kangaroos hand using a Glue Dot.  I adhered the artwork to the center of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and added a few Basic Adhesive-Backed Sequins.  On a thin strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Under My Umbrella Photopolymer Stamp Set in Balmy Blue Ink and made it into a banner.  I adhered it to a Soft Seafoam banner mat using Snail and then to the left side of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a Heart Epoxy Droplet which I colored using my Dark Balmy Blue Stampin’ Blends Marker.

Next I made the card base.  I scored a 4 1/4″ X 11″ panel of Balmy Blue cardstock at 1 3/8″, 2 3/4″, 8 1/4″ and 9 5/8″.  I folded the sides in and then back so that it would look like this:

It’s kind of like a Z-Fold on both sides.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Animal Outings stamp set in Balmy Blue Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the kangaroo image from the Animal Outings stamp set over the sentiment in Crumb Cake Ink stamping off once.  I stamped the umbrella and handle images from the Under My Umbrella stamp set in Soft Seafoam Ink in the kangaroos hand.  I colored the umbrella in using my Soft Seafoam Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Soft Seafoam mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Balmy Blue card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  On the right side panel of the card base, I adhered a panel of Coordination Pleased As Punch DSP which I matted on a Soft Seafoam panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the card front to the left side of the card base using Tear & Tape Adhesive.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the kangaroo image from the Animal Outings stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped the umbrella image from the Under My Umbrella stamp set in Soft Seafoam Ink attached to the kangaroo.  I colored the images in using my Crumb Cake, Ivory, Smoky Slate and Soft Seafoam Stampin’ Blends Makers.  I adhered a panel of the Pleased As Punch 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! Band Together Birthday Card 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 my card using the sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of 2019-2021 In-Color 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Pretty Peacock card base using Snail.  On a Whisper White panel I stamped the flower image from the Stampin’ Up! Band Together Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the image in using my Blackberry Bliss, Old Olive, Pretty Peacock and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the image out using my Rectangle Stitched Dies.  I adhered the artwork to a So Saffron mat using Snail.

On a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped just the large flower from the Band Together stamp set in tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the flower in using my Blackberry Bliss Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the image out using my Detailed Bands Dies and adhered it over the stamped flower using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the matted artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Blackberry Bliss cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Band Together stamp set in Versamark Ink.  I immediately sprinkled it with my White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I adhered it to the card front using a Stampin’ Dimensional and a Glue Dot.  I added a Candle Embellishment to the left of the sentiment and some Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the artwork.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Band Together stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I stamped the flower image from the Band Together  stamp set in So Saffron Ink, stamping of once, over the sentiment.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a So Saffron mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Pretty Peacock card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the flower image from the Band Together stamp set on the bottom front of the envelope and colored it in using my Blackberry Bliss, Old Olive, Pretty Peacock and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of the 2019-2021 In-Color 6X6 DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Day Pressed Petals CAS

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends.  How is everyone’s week going?  This Friday is Valentine’s Day, is anyone doing anything fun?  It’ll be a stay at home night for me.  Maybe make a nice dinner, but I definitely will not be going out to dinner.  I did make cute little valentines for all my cashiers and co-workers.  I love giving them little treats every now and then just to let them know how much I appreciate them.

I made a really quick and easy card for you today.  I used one of my favorite 2018-2020 In-Colors, Blueberry Bushel.  This is one of my favorite shades of blue, it’s such a rich color.  The 2018-2020 In-Colors will be retiring at the beginning of June.  If there is one or all the colors that you like, don’t wait to get them.  The paper and ink are the first things to sell out.  Here’s my card for today.

I started by cutting a band for the card front in Blueberry Bushel cardstock using the Detailed Bands Dies.  I adhered it to a Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper card front using Glue Dots.  I folded the ends of the band around the back of the DSP and adhered them with Glue Dots.  I just love when the Designer Series Paper does most of the work for you.  This paper is so gorgeous and realistic looking.

I adhered the card front to a Blueberry Bushel card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  On a scrap of Shimmer White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Very Versailles Cling Stamp Set in Blueberry Bushel Ink.

I cut the sentiment out using the oval die from the Detailed Bands Dies.  I adhered the sentiment to the center of the band on the card front using Snail.

On the inside I stamped the script image from the Very Versailles stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink on the top left of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the cascading leaves image from the Very Versailles stamp set on top of the script image in Pear Pizzazz Ink.  I stamped the sentiment from the Very Versailles 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 script image from the Very Versailles stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped the cascading leaf image from the Very Versailles stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on top of the script.  I adhered a panel of the Pressed Petals Specialty 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! Beautiful Moments Birthday for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers. 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 Mary Deatherage’s blog, welcome to my blog and thank you for stopping by. The theme this month is “Birthday”. We can interpret this any way that we’d like.

For my card today I used one of my absolute favorite sets from the 2020 January-June Mini Catalog.  Here’s my card.

My card played along with Hand Stamped Sentiments Sketch Challenge #332.  Here is their sketch.

I started by embossing a Purple Posy card front using the Country Floral 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the card front to a Purple Posy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered the 2 pieces of  Best Dressed Designer Series Paper to a Mint Macaron mat using Snail.  I embossed a Mint Macaron banner using the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to the back of the Mint Macaron mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.   On a small piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the image from the Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Moments Cling Stamp Set in Basic Grey Ink.  I colored the image in using my Crumb Cake, Ivory, Mint Macaron and Purple Posy Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the image out using my Stitched Rectangle Dies.  I adhered the artwork to a Mint Macaron mat using Snail.  I threaded a piece of Whisper White Bakers Twine through a  2018-2020 In-Color Button and tied a bow.  I adhered a piece of Mint Macaron 1/8″ Sheer Linen Ribbon to the back of the button using a Glue Dot and then to the artwork using another Glue Dot.

I adhered the artwork to the small card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I then adhered the small card front to the large card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  On a small strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips Photopolymer Stamp Set in Basic Grey Ink.  I sponged the edges using my Stamping Sponges and Mint Macaron Ink.  I adhered the sentiment using a Stampin’ Dimensional to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Basic Grey Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the image from the Beautiful Moments stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink, stamping off once, on top of the sentiment.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Mint Macaron mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Purple Posy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the images from the Beautiful Moments stamp set in Basic Grey Ink on the envelope front.  I colored the images in using my Crumb Cake, Ivory, Mint Macaron and Purple Posy Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of the Best Dressed DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Power of Hope

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s weekend?  It ended up being a beautiful weekend here. Did  anyone do anything fun?

For today’s card I used one of the Sale-A-Bration bundle that you can earn  with a $100 order.  I wasn’t sure I was gong to like it, but once I started playing with it I love it.  Here’s my card.

I played along with Fab Friday Color Challenge #182.   Here are their colors.

I also joined in with Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #421.  Here is their sketch.

I started by embossing a Coastal Cabana card front using the Stone 3D Embossing Folder.  This folder is only available with the stamp set as a bundle FREE with a qualifying order of $100 from Sale-A-Bration.  Using my Stamping Sponges I sponged Bermuda Bay Ink over the embossed panel to add some darker shading.  I adhered the embossed panel to a Coastal Cabana card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the image from the Stampin’ Up! Power Of Hope Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I cut the image out using the Stitched Shapes Dies.  Using the Layering Squares Dies, I cut the scallop square that fit the stitched square in Merry Merlot cardstock.  I adhered the stitched square to the Merry Merlot scalloped square using Snail and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the same panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Power of Hope stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using the Layering Ovals Dies.  I stamped the lantern image from the Power of Hope stamp set in Melon Mambo Ink, stamping off 3 times, over the sentiment.  Using my Layering Ovals Dies, I cut the scallop oval that matched the sentiment oval out of Merry Merlot cardstock.  I adhered the sentiment oval to the scallop oval using Snail and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a Melon Mambo Glitter Enamel Dot to the sentiment.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Power of Hope stamp set in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the tree image from the Power of Hope stamp set over the sentiment in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, stamping off 4 times.  I stamped the bottom image from the Power of Hope stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored the image in using my Melon Mambo and Merry Merlot Stampin’ Write Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Bermuda Bay mat using Snail and then 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 images from the Power of Hope stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front and colored the one image in using my Melon Mambo and Merry Merlot Stampin’ Write Markers.  I stamped the lantern image from the Power of Hope stamp set across the envelope flap in Bermuda Bay and Melon Mambo Ink stamping twice before reinking the stamp.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card.  Don’t forget, this Power of Hope Bundle is available as a Sale-A-Bration item FREE with a qualifying order of $100 or more.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Parisian Blossom Wedding for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday.  How was everyone’s week?  The weekend is upon us, is anyone making plans?  I only have to work one day this weekend, YAY!!  I’m finally going to get to go to one of my nephews basketball games.  I’m not a basketball fan, but I do love watching the little ones play.

For today’s card I was inspired by a card one of my team members, Barbara Morrison Ross, posted on our team Facebook page yesterday.  Here’s my card.

My card played along with Sunday Stamps Challenge #223 From The Heart.  Here are their colors.

I started by embossing a Pool Party card front using the Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the Pool Party panel to a Cherry Cobbler card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I scored and folded a Petal Pink card base at 1 1/2″, 3″, 5 1/2″ and 8″ and adhered it to a Cherry Cobbler mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the smaller card base to the larger one using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the large cake image from the Stampin’ Up! Sale-A-Bration  Happy Birthday To You Cling Stamp Set in Versamark Ink.  I immediately sprinkled it with my Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I carefully colored the image using my Cherry Cobbler, Petal Pink and Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Markers making sure not to touch the embossed areas.  The Stampin’ Blends Markers will lift the embossed area if you color over them.  I fussy cut the image out using my Paper Snips. There are dies available for cutting the image out.  They are Coordination Products that you can find in my Online Store.

I adhered the 3 panels of Parisian Blossom Specialty Designer Series Paper to the card base using Snail.  I adhered the cake image to the front panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals  only putting them on 1/2 of the cake.  I added Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the flower centers on the cake.

On the middle  panel I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Blossom Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Forever Blossom stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a Whisper White Panel.  I stamped the small flower image from the Forever Blossom stamp set in Petal Pink Ink in the corners of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel the inside of the Petal Pink 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 Blossom stamp set in Petal Pink Ink on the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of the Parisian Blossom Specialty 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! Hello Honey Bee for Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. How is everyone doing today? If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects today. This week we had a Color Challenge, here are the colors we got to work with.

Here is my card using the colors. I’ll admit, I had to think for a moment what to make.

My card played along with the ‘Just Us Girls’ Challenge #521.  Here is their theme.

I started by adhering a panel of Golden Honey Specialty Designer Series Paper, (Free Sale-A-Bration item), to a Whisper White card front using Snail. Using my Dark Basic Black Stampin’ Blends Marker, I colored a piece of the 3/8″ Gold Metallic Edge Ribbon.  Once it was dry, I wrapped it around the card front.  With a smaller piece of the colored ribbon I tied a small bow and adhered it to the top of the ribbon using a Glue Dot.  I adhered the card front to a Basic Black card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut a panel of Whisper White cardstock using the largest Stitched Nested Labels Dies and adhered it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Using my Detailed Bees Dies, I cut a panel of the Golden Honey Specialty DSP using the bee hive die.  I cut out 2 honey combs from a Gold Foil Sheet using the Detailed Bees Dies.  I adhered the honey combs to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and adhered the bee hive on top of the honey comb using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few of the ‘honey’ pieces to the honey comb using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.  On a scrap of Whisper White cardstock I stamped 2 of the small bees from the Stampin’ Up! Honey Bee Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I cut the bees out using the Detailed Bees Dies.  I colored the stripes on the bees in using my Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends Markers and I added some Clear Wink of Stella to the bees wings.  I adhered the bees to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a thin strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Honey Bee stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I adhered the sentiment to a Basic Black mat using Snail and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I cut another one of the bee hives using the Detailed Bees Dies and the Golden Honey Specialty DSP.  I adhered the bee hive to the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the Honey Bee stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink above the bee hive.  I stamped 2 more bees of the small bees from the Honey Bee stamp set on a scrap of Whisper White cardstock.  I cut the bees out using the Detailed Bees Dies.  I colored the bees stripes in using my Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends Marker and added some Clear Wink of Stella to the bees wings..  I adhered the bees to the bee hive using Glue Dots.  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 small bee image from the Honey Bee stamp set across the bottom of the envelope front.  I colored the bees stripes using my Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of the Golden Honey Specialty DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Heart To Heart Poppies

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  We’ve made it half way through the week already.  How is everyone doing today?  It’s been like spring here the past couple days.  I know this is just a tease before the freezing weather starts, but it’s been nice.

Today’s card is another one we did at our Stamp Camp class last night.  I wanted to do all pretty easy cards and wanted at least one where the designer paper did all the work.  Here’s my card.

I started by cutting the Rich Razzleberry card front using the largest Stitched Rectangle Die.  I cut the Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper using the 3rd from the largest Stitched Rectangle Die.  I adhered the DSP to the Rich Razzleberry mat using Snail and adhered it to the Old Olive card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Heart To Heart Photopolymer Stamp Set in Rich Razzleberry Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using the Stitched Rectangle Dies.  I cut the scallop edge piece from the Painted Labels Dies out of a scrap of Rich Razzleberry cardstock.  I adhered the scallop edge to the bottom of the sentiment using Snail.

I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I colored 2 of the Heart Epoxy Droplets using my Dark Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends Marker and adhered them to the sentiment.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Heart To Heart stamp set in Rich Razzleberry Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the small heart below the sentiment from the Heart To Heart stamp set colored with my Old Olive and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Write Markers.  I stamped the small Heart from the Heart To Heart stamp set around the sentiment in Poppy Parade Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Rich Razzleberry mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Old Olive card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the tiny heat image from the Heart To Heart stamp set colored with my Old Olive and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Write Markers, on the bottom of the envelope front.  I stamped the small heart from the Heart To Heart stamp set twice in Poppy Parade Ink on either side of the tiny heart image.  I adhered a panel of the Peaceful Poppies 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! Beautiful Poppy Moments

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  How is your week starting off?  Tonight is my Stamp Camp Class so I have another pretty easy card since I’m not sure what kind of stampers the new ladies are.  Here’s my card.

I started by using the splatter image from the Stampin’ Up! Painted Poppies Cling Stamp Set and stamped the Pool Party card front using Pool Party Ink.  I stamped the 2 poppy images and the leaf image from the Painted Poppies stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a small panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I colored the images in using my Old Olive and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the images out using my Painted Labels Dies.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Moments Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using the 2nd smallest circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies making sure that the sentiment was near the top of the circle.  I cut the swirly circle  out of Sahara Sand cardstock using the Painted Labels Dies.

I adhered the sentiment to the center of the swirly circle using Snail.  I adhered the flowers and leaves to the bottom of the sentiment using Glue Dots.  I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and I adhered the card front to the Sahara Sand card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Love What You Do Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the poppy  and leaf image from the Painted Poppies stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the bottom of the panel.  I colored the image in using my Old Olive and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the splatter image from the Painted Poppies stamp set in Pool Party Ink all around the edges of the Whisper White panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pool Party mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Sahara Sand card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the splatter image from the Painted Poppies stamp set in Pool Party Ink all around the front of the envelope.  I stamped the poppy and leaf images from the Painted Poppies stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope flap.  I colored the images in using my Old Olive and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends Markers.

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

Stampin’ Up! Meant To Be Poppies

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Did you all watch the Super Bowl last night?  I watched bits and pieces and the half time show.  I have to admit, I really only watch for the commercials.

I have a pretty easy card for you today.  I’m having a Stamp Camp class tomorrow night and I have a couple new people joining me.  I’m not sure what kind of stampers they are, so I thought I’d keep it pretty simple.  Here’s one of the cards we’re going to make.

I played along with TGIF Challenge #249.  Here is their theme.

I started with a small panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the 2 different poppy images from the Stampin’ Up! Painted Poppies Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I stamped the leaf image from the Painted Poppies stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink by the flower images.  I colored the flowers and leaves in using my Mint Macaron and Rococo Rose Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Meant To Be Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the bottom right of a Whisper White card front.  I stamped the splatter image from the Painted Poppies stamp set in Rococo Rose Ink over the stamped sentiment.  I embossed the Whisper White card front using the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder.

I adhered the artwork to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I wrapped a piece of Mint Macaron 1/8″ Sheer Linen Ribbon around the card front and tied a bow.  I adhered the card front to a Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Meant To Be stamp set in the center of a Whisper White panel in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I stamped the poppy and leaf images from the Painted Poppies stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the top and bottom corners of the Whisper White panel.  I colored the images in using my Mint Macaron and Rococo Rose Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Rococo Rose 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 stamped the poppy image from the Painted Poppies stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the bottom front of the envelope.  I colored the images in using the color fill image stamp from the Painted Poppies stamp set.  I adhered a panel of Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper 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!!
