Stampin’ Up! Arrange A Fall Wreath for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends and welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop.  Hope you are all doing well today.  If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we have a color challenge. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects .
Here are our colors for this week.

Here’s my card using this weeks colors.

I played along with TGIF Inspiration Challenge #282.  Here is their inspiration.

I started by stamping the Wreath image from the Stampin’ Up! Arrange A Wreath Photopolymer Stamp Set in Pretty Peacock Ink in the center of a Whisper White card front.  I stamped the sentiment from the Arrange A Wreath stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of the wreath.  I embossed the panel using the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the card front to a Blackberry Bliss mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and then to a Blackberry Bliss card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I cut 1 of the wreaths from the Wreath Builder Dies out of a panel of Whisper White cardstock and 1 from a panel of Pretty Peacock cardstock.  I adhered the wreaths to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I cut 3 flowers from the Wreath Builder Dies out of a panel of Cajun Craze cardstock.  I cut the flower centers from a scrap of Basic Black cardstock.  I cut 9 sprigs from the Wreath Builder Dies out of a panel of Blackberry Bliss cardstock.  I adhered the flower centers to the back of the flowers using a tiny amount of Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the flowers to the wreath using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the sprigs around the flowers using Glue Dots.

From the Blackberry Bliss panel I cut the bow from the Wreath Builder Dies and adhered it to the wreath using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Iridescent Pearls to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Country Home Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the leaf image from the Arrange A Wreath stamp set in Cajun Craze Ink around the sentiment.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pretty Peacock mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Blackberry Bliss card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card, I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the leaf image from the Arrange A Wreath stamp set in Cajun Craze Ink on the envelope front and 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! Well Said Wedding

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends.  How is everyone doing today?  We’re halfway through the week already and on our way to the weekend.

TODAY ONLY!!!

Stock up on stamp sets at a stellar price! For one day only, you can purchase select cling and photopolymer stamp sets at a 15% discount. This short, stamp-tacular sale only happens once a year—you won’t want to miss out on these super savings!

My boss is getting married this weekend and I was volunteered to collect from all of our part timers for a gift for him and his future wife.  All I said is that I would put together a card for them, I’m always getting volunteered for something.  Here is the wedding card I made for them.  Now I need to come up with one more design for a card from my family and I.

I started by cutting the outline of the floral die from the Many Layered Blossoms Dies out of a pane of Whisper White cardstock which was adhered to an Adhesive Sheet.  I cut the 2nd die cut from the Many Layered Blossoms Dies from a panel of Shimmery White cardstock.  I cut a panel of Soft Seafoam cardstock into pieces and cut just the leaves out of the 2 dies from the Many Layered Blossoms Dies to fill in on the white pieces.  I cut the small flower outlines from the Many Layered Blossoms Dies out of a panel of Shimmery White cardstock and the small  2nd die cut of the small flowers from a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock, which was adhered to an Adhesive Foam Sheet.

I adhered the Shimmer White die to the front of a Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the Soft Seafoam leaves using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the Whisper White outline die to the top of the Shimmery White flower with the Adhesive Sheet.  I adhered the small outlined flowers to the Very Vanilla flowers and then to the card front with the Adhesive Foam Sheet attached.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Well Said Cling Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using the smallest die from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies and edged it using my Soft Seafoam Stampin’ Write Marker.  I adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I cut the ‘bride  groom’ out of a panel of Champagne Foil Sheet using the Well Written Dies and adhered them to the card front, over the flowers, using my Fine Tip Glue Pen.  I added a few of the clear Elegant Faceted Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Well Said stamp set in Soft Suede Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I didn’t decorate the inside like I normally do since so many people have to sign the card.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Champagne Foil mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped one of the leaf images from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern Cling Stamp Set in Soft Seafoam Ink, stamping off once, on the envelope front.  I stamped the splatter image from the Forever Fern stamp set in Soft Seafoam Ink around the leaf image.  I adhered a panel of Peony Garden 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!!

Stampin’ Up! Celebration Tidings Christmas Gift Bag Topper

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  Happy Autumn everyone!!!  How is everyone’s week going?  I hope everyone is having a productive one.

I have one more project that we made at our last virtual in person team meeting a week ago Sunday.  My awesome team leader Amy designed a Christmas Gift Bag Topper.  I was hoping to have a bag full of goodies to display it in.  Here is the project.

I started by cutting out the large, medium and small layering poinsettia flowers from a panel of Cherry Cobbler cardstock using the Poinsettia Dies.  I cut 3 of the leaves out using the Poinsettia Dies from a panel of Shaded Spruce cardstock.  I adhered the flowers together using Multipurpose Liquid Glue in the centers.  I adhered the leaves behind the flower using Glue Dots.  I added a Beaded Pearl to the center of the flower using a Glue Dot.  I cut a sprig die from the Poinsettia Dies out of a panel of Brushed Metallic cardstock and adhered it to the back of the poinsettia using a Glue Dot.

I cut the largest die from the Celebrations Labels Dies out of a panel of the Plaid Tidings 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper.  I scored and folded the die cut in half.  I adhered the poinsettia to the front of the label using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! 
Celebration Tidings Photopolymer Stamp Set in Cherry Cobbler Ink.  Using the Banner Triple Punch, I punched the end to make a banner.  Using the Banner Triple Punch I made a banner out of a strip of Plaid Tidings DSP.  I adhered the 2 banners together with Stampin’ Seal and adhered the banner to the bag topper using Glue Dots.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked this project and will try it. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Fireside Trimmings Fall

Good Monday morning my stamping friends.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Did anyone do anything fun?  I got some cleaning done and still had time for some crafting.  Hope you are all starting the week off well.

For today I have a card using the Stampin’ Up! Fireside Trimmings Bundle and the Stampin’ Up! Autumn Goodness Bundle to make a fall card.  Since it’s cooled off so much here I was thinking how nice it would be to sit in front of a fire.  Unfortunately I don’t have a fireplace, but I can dream.  Here’s my card.

My colors are from Color Throwdown Challenge #611.  Here are their colors.

I started by adhering a panel of In Good Taste Designer Series Paper to a Basic Gray mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to a Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped the fireplace image from the Stampin’ Up! Fireside Trimmings Photopolymer Stamp Set in Basic Gray Ink on a panel of Peony Garden Designer Series Paper.  There is a panel of DSP that looks like marble in this pack of paper, so that’s the one I used.  I added a little color on the fireplace using my Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the image out using the Fireside Dies.  Using the same dies and the same DSP I also cut out the center piece to the framed die.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Autumn Goodness Photopolymer Stamp Set in Basic Gray Ink in the center of the die cut piece.  On a small scrap of Crumb Cake cardstock I stamped the log image from the Fireside Trimmings stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink.  I cut the log image out using the Fireside Dies and I cut the log holder piece out of a small scrap of Basic Gray cardstock.  I adhered the fireplace to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the log holder inside the fireplace opening using my Fine Tip Glue Pen.  I adhered the logs using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Using the Fireside Dies, I cut a panel of Pear Pizzazz cardstock using the frame die and adhered it to the sentiment using my Fine Tip Glue Pen.  I adhered the sentiment to the top of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the floral image from the Autumn Goodness stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink.  I colored the image in using my Ivory, Old Olive and Soft Seafoam Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the image out using my Autumn Wheel Barrow Dies and adhered it to the top of the fireplace using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Autumn Goodness stamp set in Basic Gray Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the floral image from the Autumn Goodness stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink, stamping off once, over the sentiment.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pear Pizzazz mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I stamped the fireplace from the Fireside Trimmings stamp set in Basic Gray Ink on the envelope front and the log image in Crumb Cake Ink inside the fireplace. I colored the logs in using my Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends Markers and added some shading to the fireplace using my Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of Peony Garden 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! Poinsettia Petals CAS

Good Sunday morning my fellow stampers.  How is everyone’s weekend going?  I have off today, but I will be doing some work around my house.  Time for some fall cleaning to get done.  I have to take down summer decorations and put up the fall.  It was chilly here this morning.  When I got up this morning it was only 40 degrees outside.  A definite sign that fall is here.

I have a Clean And Simple card for you today using the Masking Technique.  I went back to the basics using Stamps, Ink and Paper.  I tend to forget about simple when I’m making cards sometimes.  The very first workshop I went to years ago, we did not do simple cards.  Here’s my card for today.

I’m playing along with Fab Friday Challenge #197.  Here is their sketch.

I started by stamping 3 of the poinsettia image from the Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals Photopolymer Stamp Set in Merry Merlot Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I also stamped the image once on 2 Post-It notes.  I fussy cut the Post-It note images using my Paper Snips to use for my Masking Technique.  If you ever look at a poinsettia, the leaves around the flower are identical to the flower petals.  This is why I wanted to used the same leaves under the flower images.

I placed the Post-It note masks over the center and one of the side images so that I wouldn’t stamp over them.   I stamped the largest poinsettia layering image from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Garden Green Ink over and around the masked images.  I move the side Post-It to the other side image and stamped the large poinsettia image again in Garden Green Ink.  I removed the Post-Its and colored the images in using my Cherry Cobbler, Daffodil Delight and Just Jade Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I stamped the sentiment from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set on a small panel of Whisper White cardstock In Merry Merlot Ink.  I adhered the sentiment to the top of a strip of Merry Merlot cardstock, which I cut into a banner using my Paper Snips, using Stampin’ Seal just on the bottom of the sentiment.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the card front to a Merry Merlot mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to a Merry Merlot card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Merry Merlot Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the poinsettia image from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Merry Merlot Ink on the bottom of the panel. Using the Masking Technique again, I stamped the largest layering poinsettia image from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Garden Green Ink over the image.  I colored the image in using my Cherry Cobbler, Daffodil Delight and Just Jade Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Merry Merlot mat using Stampn’ Seal and then to the inside of the Merry Merlot card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the poinsettia image from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Merry Merlot Ink on the envelope front and flap.  Using the Masking Technique once again, I stamped the largest layering poinsettia image from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Garden Green Ink over the image.  I colored the images in using my Cherry Cobbler, Daffodil Delight and Just Jade Stampin’ Blends Markers.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card using the Masking Technique and will give it a try.  If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to drop me a note at creativestampingdesigns@gmail.com. I’d be more that happy to help you. This is a great technique that only uses Stamp, Ink and Paper, but looks like you did so much more.  Happy Stamping!!

  • Durable machines with high-quality results. The solid steel construction frame and rubber feet that securely grip the work surface produce crisp, clean, precise cutting and beautifully detailed embossing.
  • Easy to use. The machines and tools are designed for an intuitive die-cutting and embossing experience. For example, all plates are labeled with a number and are color coded for easy reference and use when building your sandwich. And just like the name suggests, our Magnetic Cutting Plates have fully-magnetic surfaces to make it easy to securely position your dies and keep them in place.
  • Simple to store. The platforms on both machines fold for space-saving storage and they look pretty too–the sleek, clean design suits any crafting space.
  • Portable. You can use both machines at home or on the go with their folding platforms and ergonomic carrying handles.

Stampin’ Up! Seasons Greetings In The Pines

Good Saturday morning my fellow stampers.  How is everyone doing today?  The weekend is upon us, does anyone have any plans?  It’s suppose to be like a beautiful fall day here.  I’ll be at work all day, but I do have off tomorrow.

Today’s card is the one I made on Wednesday for my Facebook Live video.  If you were able to watch live or the replay, thank you.   You can also watch it on my YouTube channel.  Here is my card.

My design is from Atlantic Hearts Challenge #386.  Here is their sketch.

I started by embossing a panel of Shaded Spruce cardstock using the Evergreen Forest 3D Embossing Folder and adhering it to a Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I cut a panel of ‘Tis The Season 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper using the Stitched Rectangle Die.  There wasn’t a die the size I needed, so I ran the die partway through my Stampin’ Cut & Embossing Machine. I moved the die to the size I wanted it matching up the stitches, turned it around and ran it through again only partway.  I adhered the stitched rectangle to a Whisper White mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I cut a panel of Whisper White cardstock Using the Pine Woods Dies and adhered it to a Just Jade mat using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the matted panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! In The Pines Photopolymer Stamp Set in Just Jade Ink on a strip of Whisper White cardstock and went around the edges using my Just Jade Stampin’ Write Marker. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using a Stampin’ Dimensional and a Glue Dot.  I stamped the pinecone image from the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Boughs Cling Stamp Set in Crumb Cake Ink on a panel of Crumb Cake cardstock twice.  I cut the images out using the coordinating die from the Beautiful Boughs Dies along with the smallest bough die in Just Jade cardstock.  I adhered the pine bough and the pinecones to the Whisper White panel using Glue Dots.  I made a bow using Linen Thread and adhered it  to the pinecones using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Peaceful Boughs stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the pine bough image from the Peaceful Boughs stamp set in Just Jade Ink, stamping off twice, on the top of the panel.  I stamped the pinecone image from the Peaceful Boughs stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink, stamping off once, on the top of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Shaded Spruce mat using Stampin’ Seal 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 pine bough from the Peaceful Boughs stamp set in Just Jade Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped the pinecone image from the Peaceful Boughs stamp set in Crumb Cake in on the bough.  I adhered a panel of ‘Tis The Season DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try.  The list of supplies are below along with the measurements if you’d like to stamp along while watching the video.  You can watch it on my Facebook page Here.

You can also view the video on my YouTube channel Here.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflower Easel Birthday 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? It’s starting to feel like fall here.  It’s been really cool at night and in the mid to upper 70’s during the day, perfect walking or yard work weather.

I’ve made another easel card for you today.  Now I know why my team member Mary loves these so much.  They are so much fun to design.  Here’s my card for today.

My colors were inspired by Paper Players Challenge #508.  Here are their colors.

I started by scoring and folding a Blackberry Bliss easel at 2 3/4″ and 5 1/2″ and adhering the 2 3/4″ section to a Blackberry Bliss card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I stamped the stem image from the Stampin’ Up! Daisy Lane Cling Stamp Set in Pretty Peacock Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I colored the leaves and the stem in using my Pretty Peacock Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Four Seasons Floral Photopolymer Stamp Set in Pretty Peacock Ink on the top of the Whisper White panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pretty Peacock mat using Stampin’ Seal.

I stamped the small sunflower image from the Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers Cling Stamp Set in Cajun Craze Ink on a small panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I colored the image in using my Cajun Craze Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I brushed some Clear Wink of Stella on the center of the sunflower go give it a little shimmer.  I fussy cut the sunflower out using my Paper Snips and adhered it to the stem using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut a couple of the leafy stems out from the Sunflower Dies in Pretty Peacock cardstock and adhered them to the stem using Glue Dots.  I tied a small bow using the 3/8″ Embroidered Ribbon and adhered it to the stems using a Glue Dot.

I adhered the artwork to the easel, just adding Multipurpose Liquid Glue to the bottom section of the easel.  I colored a few Pearl Basic Jewels with my Cajun Craze Stampin’ Blends Marker and adhered them to the card front and the card base.

For the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set towards the top of a Whisper White panel in Pretty Peacock Ink.  I stamped the small sunflower image from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Cajun Craze Ink, stamping off twice, over the sentiment.  I added some Clear Wink of Stella to the flower center.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pretty Peacock mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the Blackberry Bliss card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I stamped the sentiment from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink on a small panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I cut the image out using my Stitched Shapes Dies.  I cut a scalloped oval out of a panel of Pretty Peacock cardstock using the Layering Ovals Dies.  I adhered the sentiment to the Pretty Peacock scallop oval using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered the matted sentiment to the Whisper White panel, where I wanted the easel to set, using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the small sunflower from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Cajun Craze Ink on the envelope front and colored it in using my Cajun Craze and Pretty Peacock Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of Pretty Peacock 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 and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Snowflake Wishes for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends and welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop.  Hope you are all doing well today.  If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we have a sketch challenge. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects .
Here is our sketch for this week.

Here is my card using this sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of Snowflake Splendor Designer Series Paper to a Highland Heather card base using Stampin’ Seal.  I embossed a small Whisper White panel using the Winter Snow Embossing Folder and adhered it to a Silver Foil mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and then to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I cut a couple snowflakes from the So Many Snowflakes Dies out of a Silver Foil Sheet and adhered the larger one to the embossed panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the smaller snowflake on the opposite corner using Multipurpose Liquid Glue just on the center section.

On a strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Snowflake Wishes Photopolymer Stamp Set in Versamark Ink.  I immediately sprinkled it with my Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I adhered the sentiment to a Highland Heather mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Adhesive-Backed Snowflakes to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Snowflake Wishes stamp set in Highland Heather Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the snowflake images from the Snowflake Wishes stamp set in Highland Heather Ink, some full strength and some stamped off once.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Silver Foil mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Highland Heather card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the snowflake images from the Snowflake Wishes stamp set in Highland Heather Ink, some full strength and some stamped off, on the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of Snowflake Splendor 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. If you click on the Next Blog button, you’ll go to Julie’s page. Or you can just click on the names below to go directly to all their blogs! Happy Hopping!!
