Stampin’ Up! Amazing Birthday For The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. How is everyone doing today? Hope you are all staying healthy.  If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by my blog. 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’s what I came up with for these colors.

My design is from Try Stampin’ On Tuesday Challenge #454.  Here is their sketch.

I started by embossing a Bermuda Bay card front using the Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered a panel of Birthday Bonanza Designer Series Paper to the embossed panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and adhered the panel to a Bermuda Bay card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the large image from the Stampin’ Up! Everything Amazing Photopolymer Stamp Set in Bermuda Bay Ink.  I stamped the insert words from the Everything Amazing stamp set in Grapefruit Grove Ink.  I adhered the artwork to a Daffodil Delight mat using Snail.

Using the Ornate Borders Dies, I cut a strip of Whisper White cardstock.  I adhered a thin strip of the Birthday Bonanza DSP above the cut border using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and the border just below the artwork using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Gingham Gala Adhesive-Backed Sequins to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Birthdays Cling Stamp Set in Bermuda Bay Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the balloon image from the Everything Amazing stamp set in Daffodil Delight Ink on either side of the sentiment.  I stamped the streamer image from the Everything Amazing stamp set randomly in Bermuda Bay and Grapefruit Grove Ink on the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Daffodil Delight mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Bermuda Bay card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I adhered a strip of the Birthday Bonanza DSP to the envelope front and a panel on the envelope flap.  I stamped the balloon and streamer images from the Everything Amazing stamp set in Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight and Grapefruit Grove Inks on the bottom front of the envelope.

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! Grateful We Are Friends

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends.  How is everyone’s week going?  We’re halfway through and almost to the weekend again.  We are still quarantined here in NJ, so I won’t be going anywhere except to work.

I’ve been making a lot of Mother’s Day cards lately, in case you haven’t noticed.  I like to send them out to my family and friends. Today I have another one for you using a set that will be carrying over to the new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.  Here’s my card for today.

My colors were inspired by Sunday Stamps Color Challenge #229.  Here are their colors.

My design is from Paper Players Sketch Challenge #488.  Here is their sketch.

I started by cutting a panel of Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper using the largest Stitched Rectangle Die.  I adhered it to a Pretty Peacock mat using Snail and adhered it to a Pool Party card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the large flower image from the Stampin’ Up! Band Together Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the image in using my Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green and Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends Markers.  The top flower is the Daffodil Delight and the bottom is the Mango Melody, but you can’t really see the difference in the photo.  I cut the image out using the 4th largest Stitched Rectangle Die and adhered it to a Pretty Peacock mat using Snail.  I adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock, I stamped the butterfly image from the Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Gala Photopolymer Stamp Set, in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I stamped the fill images from the Butterfly Gala stamp set in using Mango Melody Ink.  I punched the image out using my Butterfly Duet Punch.  I brushed the butterfly with my Clear Wink of Stella to give it a little shimmer.  I stamped the butterflies antenna on the flower in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and adhered the butterfly to the artwork using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I stamped the sentiment from the Band Together stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a Whisper White panel and cut it out using the smallest oval from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I adhered the sentiment to the bottom of the artwork using Glue Dots.  I tied a small bow using the Pretty Peacock/Old Olive 3/8″ Reversible Ribbon and adhered it to the sentiment using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the large flower image from the Band Together stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink on a Whisper White panel, stamping off 3 times to get a very light image.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Strong & Beautiful Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pretty Peacock 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 the large flower image from the Band Together stamp set on either side of the envelope front.  I colored the images in using my Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green and Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of 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! Tropical Hello

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  How has everyone’s week started off?  I’ve got a busy week ahead.  Today is my only day off 😦  Normally I only work on Monday’s and Wednesday’s, but it’s the end of the month and the 1st of May on Friday, so I have to work.  I don’t know about you, but April was a big blur to me.  When I was sitting at my desk yesterday I looked at the calendar and didn’t even realize that the month was just about over.  All my days are just blending together lately.

Today I used some more of the retiring items for my card.  I want to use them as much as possible because once they are gone, I won’t use them.  Here’s my card for today.

My colors were inspired by Fab Friday Color Challenge # 188.  Here are their colors.

My sketch is from Just Add Ink Challenge #502.  Here is their sketch.

I joined in with Always Fun Challenge #160 also.  There theme challenge is to use ‘Embossing Folders’.

I started by embossing a Pool Party card front using the Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder.  I embossed the top 1/3 then turned the cardstock around leaving about 3/4″ and embossed the bottom section.   I wrapped a piece of the 5/16″ Braided Burlap Trim around the un-embossed section and secured it on the back of the panel using Snail.  I adhered a strip of Grapefruit Grove cardstock just under the trim using Snail.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tropical Cling Stamp Set in Crumb Cake Ink.  I cut the panel using the 2nd largest square from the Stitched Shapes Dies, making sure the sentiment was in the top right corner.  I cut a scalloped square from a panel of Whisper White cardstock using my Layering Squares Dies.  I adhered the stitched square to the scalloped square using Snail.

On a panel of Blushing Bride cardstock I stamped the hibiscus flower from the Timeless Tropical stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink.  I highlighted the center of the flower using my Blushing Bride Stampin’ Write Marker and added some Clear Wink of Stella to the center of the flower.  I cut the image out using my In The Tropics Dies.  On a panel of Pool Party cardstock I stamped the leaf image from the Timeless Tropical stamp set in Bermuda Bay Ink 3 times.  I cut the images out using my In The Tropics Dies.  I adhered the leaves to the back of the flower using Glue Dots and adhered the flower to the sentiment square using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a Tropical Oasis Trinket just under the sentiment using a Glue Dot.  I adhered the card front to a Pool Party card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Grapefruit Grove Gingham Gala Adhesive-Backed Sequins to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Strong & Beautiful Cling Stamp Set in Crumb Cake Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the hibiscus image from the Timeless Tropical stamp set in Blushing Bride Ink on the bottom of the panel.  Using the masking technique, I stamped the leaves from the Timeless Tropical stamp set around the flower in Pool Party Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Blushing Bride 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 the hibiscus from the Timeless Tropical stamp set in Blushing Bride Ink on the bottom front of the envelope.  I stamped the leaf image from the Timeless Tropical stamp set in Pool Party Ink around the flower and on the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Although the stamp set and dies will be carrying over to the new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog, the bundle pricing will not.  You can still save 10% by purchasing this bundle before June 2nd. Don’t forget, the Grapefruit Grove cardstock, Tropical Oasis Trinkets, Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder, the Braided Burlap Trim and the Gingham Gala Adhesive-Backed Sequins are all retiring.  Now’s the time to grab them before they’re gone.  Happy Stamping!!

Updated Retired List

Hello fellow stampers.  This is my 2nd post today.  If you want to see my card click here.

I just wanted to let you know that I have updated my Retirement Sale List.  I have not added items that are just retiring now (those will be added in June).  If you’ve been looking for an older stamp set, I might just have the one you are looking for.  I have a lot of older DSP and ribbon that I have not listed, so if you are looking for anything specific drop me a line.  I also have some older punches that I will hopefully be adding in the next few days.  Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions or are looking for something specific.

I’ll take PayPal (you can pay by credit card through PayPal without having an account) or Bank Checks (must be a previous customer of mine and check must received within 5 days) for payment. Shipping will be in addition to the prices noted. Shipping charges will be calculated based on weight and distance and I’ll find the most economical way to ship to you. You’ll only pay the actual shipping costs. Thanks for looking. Please feel free to contact me with any questions @ creativestampingdesigns@gmail.com.
Happy Shopping!!!

****************************************************************************************************

I also wanted to give everyone a recent update from Stampin’ Up! Paper Pumpkin.  The May kit was such a hit it already sold out.

Stampin’ Up! Friends Like You

Good Monday morning my stamping friends.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Saturday was a beautiful day here, but Sunday was rainy and chilly.  Sorry I missed yesterday posting.  I got a call at 6am from one of my cashiers telling me she was at the vet with her dog and wouldn’t be able to get in to work on time.  Of course I had to go in and cover for her, so I didn’t have time to get my post done for you.

Today’s card uses some of the 2018-2020 retiring colors, one of them is not my favorite.  My team leader, Amy, thinks she is going to get me to start liking yellow.  I don’t think it is going to happen, though I do like it in my card.  Here’s what I made for today.

My sketch is from Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #432.  Here is their sketch.

My colors are from CAS Colours & Sketch Challenge #367.  Here are their colors.

I started by stamping the rose bud image from the Stampin’ Up! Tea Together Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink across a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I am definitely going to miss this stamp set.  I colored the images in using my Call Me Clover and Pineapple Punch Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Positive Thoughts Cling Stamp Set in Blueberry Bushel Ink below the row of rose buds.  I adhered the Whisper White card front to a Pineapple Punch mat using Snail.

I cut a scalloped oval using my Layering Ovals Dies out of a panel of Blueberry Bushel cardstock.  I then cut the center out using a solid oval from the Layering Ovals Dies that was 2 sizes smaller.  I adhered the oval to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the large rose image from the Tea Together stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the image in using my Call Me Clover and Pineapple Punch Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the image out using my Tea Time Dies and adhered it to the oval using Glue Dots.  I adhered the card front to a Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I added a few Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Tea Together stamp set in Blueberry Bushel Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I adhered a strip of Call Me Clover cardstock to the bottom of the panel using Snail.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pineapple Punch mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the rose bud image from the Tea Together stamp set 5 times.  I colored the images in using my Call Me Clover and Pineapple Punch Stampin’ Blends Markers  and cut all the images out using my Tea Time Dies.  I adhered the rose buds to the bottom of the Whisper White panel just under the Call Me Clover strip Using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the large rose image from the Tea Together stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the bottom front and the envelope flap.  I colored the images in using my Call Me Clover and Pineapple Punch Stampin’ Blends Markers.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try.  The Tea Together stamp set, 2018-2020 In-Color cardstock, Ink, Stampin’ Blends Markers and the Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots are all retiring soon.  If you like these items, don’t wait. Grab them while they are still available.  These items are going fast.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Ornate Hello

Good Saturday morning my fellow stampers.  Does anyone have any plans for this weekend?  Maybe some gardening, spring cleaning, crafting, binge watching?  I’ll be working today, but I do have off tomorrow.  I’m hoping to start re-organizing my craft area to get ready for some of the new things that will be coming in the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.  We got a sneak peek at it this week, I can’t wait till I can place my order.  That’s one of the best parts of being a demonstrator, you get to order early.  If anyone is interested in joining our team, drop me a line and I would be happy to help you sign up.

For today I have one more card using the Ornate Garden Suite.  This was another one I was playing around with doing for my video last Saturday, but decided on a different one.  I made it to use for an Anniversary, but it could easily be used for a birthday too.  Here’s my card for today.

I started by coloring a panel of the Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper using my Light Mint Macaron, Light Night of Navy, Light Pineapple Punch and Light So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers.  One of the great things about 2 of the designs from this DSP pack is that you can color them any colors and any way you want.

Using the beautiful Ornate Borders Dies, I cut a panel of Night of Navy cardstock using the flower border.  I adhered the colored DSP to the edge of the die cut border using Snail and then adhered it to a So Saffron card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I added 3 Pearl Basic Jewels in the center of the die cut flowers down the side.  I love the way the Night of Navy looks on top of the So Saffron.

To pick up the gold from the DSP, using the Ornate Layers Dies, I cut a Gold Foil Sheet using the small frame.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips Photopolymer Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink on a small panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I stamped the small flower image from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Style Cling Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink above and below the sentiment.  I colored the images in using my Light Mint Macaron and Light Pineapple Punch Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the Gold Foil frame using Stampin’ Dimensionals and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Well Said Cling Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel .  I stamped the large floral image from the Ornate Style stamp set in So Saffron Ink over the sentiment, stamping off once.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Night of Navy 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 small flower image from the Ornate Style stamp set across the bottom of the envelope front in Soft Suede Ink.  I colored the images in using my Light Mint Macaron and Light Pineapple Punch Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of the Ornate Garden Specialty DSP, which I had colored using my Light Mint Macaron, Light Night of Navy, Light Pineapple Punch and Light So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers,  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! Ornate From All Of Us for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday.  How was everyone’s week?

Today’s card is one that I demonstrated on our Facebook Live Event last Saturday.  Here is the link if you’d like to watch it.  https://creativestampingdesigns.com/…/stampin-up-ornate-ho…/    These cards are the same, but just a little different.  One I made as a book fold and the other a tent fold.  I have both cards here that I  will explain.  The card cuts and products used are below for both cards.  Here are my cards.

With both cards I started by lightly adhering the Early Espresso card front to the Early Espresso card base and the Old Olive card front to the Old Olive card base using a tiny bit of Snail right in the middle.  I cut the Early Espresso card using the Layering Ovals Dies and the Old Olive card using the Stitched Rectangle Dies.  I embossed both card fronts using my Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the Early Espresso card front to the Early Espresso card base and the Old Olive card front to the Old Olive card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Using my Layering Ovals Dies, I cut a panel of Blushing Bride cardstock using the scalloped oval that was larger that the cut oval.  I cut the center of the oval the same size as the  one cut through the card front.  I adhered the frame to the Early Espresso card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I wrapped a piece of Old Olive Ornate Garden 1/4″ Ribbon around the right side of the oval and tied a bow.  On a thin piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Thanks Photopolymer Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink.  I adhered the sentiment to a Blushing Bride mat using Snail and then to the Early Espresso card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a couple Gilded Gems to the card front.

Using my Ornate Layers Dies, I cut a panel of Terracotta Tile cardstock using the frame that was larger than the rectangle on the Old Olive card front.  I cut the center of the Terracotta Tile frame using the same size Stitched Rectangle Die that I used to cut through the card front.

I adhered the frame to the Old Olive card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I added a Gilded Gem to the card front.

For the inner card I adhered a panel of Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper to a Blushing Bride card base using Snail.  I adhered the inner card inside the Early Espresso card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue making sure it was centered and opened to the right (opposite of the Early Espresso card).   It will look like photo below.

I added another Gilded Gem to one of the flowers you can see through the card front.

For the inner card I adhered a panel of the Ornate Garden Specialty DSP to a Terracotta Tile card base using Snail.  I adhered the inner card to the inside of the Old Olive card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue making sure it was centered and opened to the right (opposite of a book fold card).  I stamped the sentiment from the Ornate Thanks stamp set in Terracotta Tile Ink on a strip of Whisper White cardstock.  I adhered the sentiment to an Old Olive mat using Snail.  I adhered the matted sentiment to the inner card front using Glue Dots, lining is up through the rectangle card front.  I tied a small bow from the Terracotta Tile Ornate Garden 1/4″ Ribbon and adhered it with a Glue Dot.  I added a couple Gilded Gems to the inner card front and sentiment.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips Photopolymer Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  Using the Ornate Borders Dies, I cut out the flourish on either side of the sentiment.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the smaller Blushing Bride card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  There were 2 heart shapes that cut out of each side from the flourish die, so I added them in the top inside corners of the small and large card bases using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Terracotta Tile Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the daisy image from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Style Cling Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink on the bottom of the panel.  I colored the images in using my Light Mango Melody and Light Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the small Terracotta Tile card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the scroll image from the Ornate Style stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the 4 corners of the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of the Ornate Garden Specialty DSP to the envelope flap.

To finish my 2nd card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the daisy image from the Ornate Style stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the bottom of the envelope front 3 times.  I colored the images in using my Light Mango Melody and Light Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of the Ornate Garden Specialty DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my cards and will give it a try.  If you want to watch the video on the Old Olive card, just click the link above.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Special Someone for Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends.  How is everyone doing today?  Welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by my blog. 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 this sketch.

My colors were inspired by Global Design Project Challenge #237.  Here are their colors.

I also played along with Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge #337.  Here is their Inspiration.

I started by adhering a panel of Mint Macaron Subtle 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Mint Macaron card base using Snail.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the racoon image from the Stampin’ Up! Special Someone Photopolymer Stamp Set first in Early Espresso for the outline then in Soft Suede for the fill color.  I stamped 2 round balloons and one heart balloon from the Special Someone stamp set on the same panel.  I stamped the round balloons first in Mint Macaron and Night of Navy for the outlines.  I then stamped the fill color in Mint Macaron and Night of Navy, stamping off once.  I did the same for the heart balloon, stamped the outline in Melon Mambo and the fill color in Melon Mambo stamping off once.  I cut the images out using the Special Day Dies and I also cut out the balloon strings and the bow.

I embossed a Melon Mambo panel using the Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the embossed panel to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the racoon to the embossed panel using Stampin Dimensionals.  I adhered the balloon strings to the racoon using a Glue Dot and the bow to the strings using a tiny drop of Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the balloons to the top of the strings on the embossed panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  On a strip of Night of Navy cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Special Someone stamp set in Versamark Ink.  I immediately sprinkled it with my White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I adhered the sentiment strip to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a couple Melon Mango Glitter Enamel Dots to the sentiment strip.  I added a couple Night of Navy Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots to the card front and one to the center of the bow.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Special Someone stamp set in Night of Navy Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the racoon image from the Special Someone stamp set on the bottom of the panel, first in Early Espresso Ink for the outline then in Soft Suede Ink for the fill color.  I stamped the mouse image from the Special Someone stamp set on the bottom of the panel.  I stamped the outline image in Basic Gray Ink and the fill image in Smoky Slate Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Night of Navy mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Mint Macaron card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the racoon image from the Special Someone stamp set on the bottom front of the envelope.  I stamped the outline image in Early Espresso Ink and the fill image in Soft Suede Ink.  I stamped the balloon string image from the Special Someone stamp set in Night of Navy Ink.  I stamped the balloon image from the Special Someone stamp set first the outline image in Mint Macaron Ink and the fill image in Mint Macaron Ink, stamping off once.  I adhered a panel of the Melon Mambo Brights 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to the envelope flap.
