Stampin’ Up! Nothing’s Better Than Warm Hugs

Good Saturday morning my fellow stampers. Hope your weekend is starting off great. I was finally able to sleep in my own bed last night and we are now able to walk on our floors. They came out gorgeous. I can’t wait to put furniture back and pictures back on the walls to make it nice and homey again.

For today’s card I combined a couple stamp sets to make another non-traditional colored Christmas card. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up Nothing’s Better Thank Bundle and the Stampin’ Up! Warm Hugs Photopolymer Stamp Set. My colors are from CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge #397. Here are their colors.

I also played along with Global Design Project #267. Here is their theme.

I started by adhering a panel of Peony Garden Designer Series Paper to a Blackberry Bliss card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I cut a panel of Whisper White cardstock using the Curvy Dies twice. The Curvy Dies are available as part of a bundle with the Stampin’ Up! Quite Curvy Photopolymer Stamp Set. There are no measurements for how I cut the curves, I just cut them the way I liked them.

On each of the cut pieces I stamped the sentiments from the Warm Hugs stamp set in Basic Gray Ink. On a panel of Purple Posy cardstock I stamped the cup image from the Stampin’ Up! Nothing’s Better Than Photopolymer Stamp Set in Blackberry Bliss Ink 6 times. I cut the images out using the Love You More Than Dies. I colored the insides of the cup and saucer using my Blackberry Bliss Stampin’ Blends Markers.

On the top Whisper White panel, I stamped the steam image from the Nothing’s Better Than stamp set in Basic Gray Ink. I adhered the cups to the Whisper White panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered both Whisper White panels to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals trying to keep the same amount on the top and bottom.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Warm Hugs stamp set in Basic Gray Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel. I stamped the steam image from the Nothing’s Better Than stamp set in Basic Gray Ink 3 times along the bottom of the panel. I adhered 3 more of the cups that I stamped, colored and cut from the Purple Posy cardstock along the bottom of the panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Purple Posy 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 cup image from the Nothing’s Better Than stamp set in Blackberry Bliss Ink. I stamped the steam image from the Nothing’s Better Than stamp set in Basic Gray Ink above the cups. I colored the cups using my Purple Posy Stampin’ Blends Markers and the insides of the cup and saucer using my Blackberry Bliss Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of the 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! Enjoy The Moment Sneak Peek for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s week? The weekend is upon us, does anyone have any plans? Besides trying to get my house back in order, I’ll be at work all weekend. We will finally be able to walk on our new floors today, but only with socks, no shoes. I’ll be happy to be able to sleep in my own bed tonight. The hotel was fine, but it’s not home. We probably won’t move our furniture back into the house until next week. My husband has a lot of painting to do now and he has to replace a lot of the molding. We figured it would be a lot easier to do without any furniture in place. I can’t wait till it’s all done and everything can be put back in place.

Today’s card I made on my Facebook Live video on Wednesday. If you were able to join me or watched the replay, thank you very much. If you’d like to watch my video and stamp along, the measurements are below along with the links to my Facebook page and my YouTube channel. You won’t be able to make the exact card unless you were able to purchase this set already. The stamp set will be available in the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog and the DSP I used is a free item from the Sale-A-Bration Catalog. Here’s my card that I made.

For my Fun Fold card I used the Stampin’ Up! Enjoy The Moment Cling Stamp Set that will be available in the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog on January 5, 2021. I also used the Flower & Field Designer Series Paper that can be earned free with a qualifying order from Sale-A-Bration starting January 5, 2021.

This is the template for cutting your Drapery Fold card.

I started by cutting and folding the Flower & Field DSP as in the template above. I added a couple Glue Dots in between the folds to hold them in place.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Enjoy The Moment stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink. I immediately sprinkled it with my Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I trimmed the folded DSP to 5 1/4″ and adhered it to the Whisper White panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I wrapped a piece of the Just Jade 1/4″ 2020-2022 In-Color Ribbon around the card front and tied a bow. I adhered the card front to a Just Jade card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Misty Moonlight 2020-2022 In-Color Enamel Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Enjoy The Moment stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel. I stamped the flourish image from Enjoy The Moment stamp set in Just Jade Ink, stamping off once, on either side of the sentiment. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Shaded Spruce mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Just Jade card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the flourish image from the Enjoy The Moment stamp set in Just Jade Ink, stamping off once, across the bottom front of the envelope. I adhered a panel of the Flower & Field 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 measurements are below if you’d like to stamp along while watching the video. The stamp set for my card today will be available in the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog on January 5, 2021. The DSP can be earned free with a qualifying order from Sale-A-Bration starting January 5, 2021. If you are one of my customers and have placed an order this past year, I will be sending you a catalog as soon as they are available. If you need a catalog and would like me to be your demonstrator, please drop me a line and I will be more that happy to get one out to you as soon as I can.

Stampin’ Up! Plaid Gnome For The Holidays for 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.  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 awesome projects.
Here are our colors for this week.

Here’s my card using these colors.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Gnome For The Holidays Cling Stamp Set for today’s card. Can you tell this is my favorite set in the catalog? My design is from TGIF Challenge #290. Here is their sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of ‘Tis The Season 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Cherry Cobbler card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the gnome image from the Gnome For The Holidays stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. I masked the gnome image with a Post-It Note and stamped the tree house image from the Gnome For The Holidays stamp set behind the gnome in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. To do the masking, you stamp an image on a Post-It Note and fussy cut it using your Paper Snips. You place the cut image over the stamped image and stamp the next image you want and it will appear to be behind the 1st image. I colored the images in using my Bronze, Cherry Cobbler, Cinnamon Cider, Crumb Cake, Gray Granite, Ivory, Just Jade, Petal Pink, Real Red and Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends Markers. One of the colors in the color challenge is Garden Green, but they haven’t made a Garden Green Blends Marker yet, so I used Just Jade. I cut the image out using the largest oval from the Stitched Shapes Dies. I cut a scalloped oval from the Layering Ovals Dies from a panel of Cherry Cobbler cardstock and adhered the artwork to it using Stampin’ Seal.

I stamped the sentiment from Gnome For The Holidays stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock and cut it out using the smallest rectangle from the Stitched Rectangle Dies. I adhered the sentiment to a strip of Cherry Cobbler cardstock using Stampin’ Seal. On the back of the matted artwork I added some of the Gold Trim from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack using Glue Dots then adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the sentiment over the artwork using Stampin’ Dimensionals and Glue Dots. I added some Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the Christmas Tree. On the ornaments/lights that I didn’t add rhinestones and the star I used Clear Wink of Stella.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Gnome For The Holidays stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel. I stamped another one of the gnome images from Gnome For The Holidays stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the bottom of the panel. I colored the image in using my Cherry Cobbler, Gray Granite, Ivory, Just Jade and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered thin strips of the ‘Tis The Season DSP on the bottom and top of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Cherry Cobbler card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the 2 gnome images from the Gnome For The Holidays stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front. I colored the images in using my Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, Gray Granite, Ivory, Just Jade, Petal Pink, Real Red and Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of ‘Tis The Season 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! Snow Wonder Christmas

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers. Happy midweek! We’re on the down hill to the weekend already. Yesterday was one very loud day at my house. I knew it was going to be loud, I just didn’t know how loud. On the bright side, my floors are starting to look amazing. They were able to sand the stains out with no problems. We have 3 more days of staying off them, then we can walk with socks only.

I have a Christmas card for you today using non-traditional colors. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Snow Wonder Bundle for my card along with the Plaid Tidings 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper. My Colors were inspired by As You Like It Challenge #238. Here are their colors.

My design is from Fab Friday Challenge #201. Here is their sketch.

I also played along with Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge #352. Here is their theme.

I started by embossing a panel of Petal Pink cardstock using the Winter Snow Embossing Folder. I adhered the embossed panel to a Petal Pink card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered a panel of the Plaid Tidings DSP to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped the snowman image from the Stampin’ Up! Snow Wonder Cling Stamp Set in Basic Gray Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock. I colored the hat and scarf in using my Flirty Flamingo and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image out using my Snow Time Dies. Using the Snow Time Dies I embossed the top of a Basic Gray panel with the snow flake die. I adhered the snowman image to the Basic Gray panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment from the Snow Wonder stamp set in Basic Gray Ink on a small Whisper White panel and cut it out using the Snow Time Dies.

I stamped a small panel of Petal Pink cardstock using the snowflake image from the Snow Wonder stamp set in Petal Pink Ink. I adhered the panel behind the Basic Gray panel using Stampin’ Seal and then adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the sentiment 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 Snow Wonder stamp set in Basic Gray Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel. I stamped the snowflake image from the Snow Wonder stamp set in Petal Pink Ink around the top of the panel. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Basic Gray mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Petal Pink card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the snowman image from the Snow Wonder stamp set in Basic Gray Ink on the envelope front. I stamped the snowflake image from the Snow Wonder stamp set in Petal Pink Ink around the snowman. I adhered a panel of Plaid Tidings 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! Perfectly Plaid Christmas CAS

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends. How has everyone’s week started off? By the time you read this my house will be full of workers and lots of noise being made. I wasn’t expecting them to come this early today, but I guess they want to get a jump on things. Last night we were running around getting the last of anything left around put away and we had to pack our suitcases and laptops to be out of the way first thing. I have my bag packed up with my Paper Pumpkin kits to work on in the hotel room at night. My kitchen is now full of furniture along with the POD outside and we borrowed my neighbors garage too. I’m sure it will all be worth it in the end, but after working later than usual yesterday and coming home and finding out how early they were showing up I’m ready for a nap already. The good news it I will have all brand new floors for the holidays.

With that being said, I have a really quick and easy card for you today. I couldn’t fuss too much with this one. Here’s my card.

I let the Feels Like Frost 6 X 6 Specialty Designer Series Paper do most of the work for me along with the Stampin’ Up! Perfectly Plaid Photopolymer Stamp Set.

I started by adhering a panel of the Feels Like Frost DSP to a Basic Gray mat using Stampin’ Seal and embossed it using the Winter Snow Embossing Folder.

I wrapped a piece of the 1/4″ Snowflake Splendor Ribbon around the card front, adhering it in the back with some Stampin’ Seal, then adhering it to a Basic Gray card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment from the Perfectly Plaid stamp set in Basic Gray Ink on a small panel of Whisper White cardstock and cut it out using the Tasteful Labels Dies.

I adhered the sentiment over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals and added a few Elegant Faceted Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Perfectly Plaid stamp set in Basic Gray Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel. I stamped the tree image from the Perfectly Plaid stamp set in Basic Gray Ink on the bottom of the panel, some stamped in full strength and some stamped off once. I adhered a strip of the Feels Like Frost DSP to the top of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Purple Posy mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Basic Gray card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the tree image from the Perfectly Plaid stamp set in Basic Gray Ink on the envelope front, some stamped full strength and some stamped off. I adhered a panel of the Feels Like Frost DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my quick and easy card and will give it a try. This Feels Like Frost DSP has beautiful life like images that do all the work. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Simply Succulents Sneak Peek

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers. How was everyone’s weekend? Did anyone do anything fun. Other than working, I packed up my living room and took all my pictures down from the hallways and staircases. All my furniture got moved into a POD for a couple weeks now. We’re having our floors refinished, so that means everything had to get packed and we’re moving out for a couple days. I’ll actually be coming home in the mornings to let the workers in and I’ll be staying in my basement for the day with my dog. She gets to come to the hotel to stay with us at night, I just don’t want to leave her there by herself during the day.

For today I have another sneak peek for you of a bundle coming in the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog. Here’s my card for today.

I used the new Stampin’ Up! Simply Succulents Bundle for my card. My son’s girlfriends birthday is tomorrow and she love her succulents, so when I saw this set I knew I had to buy it to make her a card. I used quite a few colors for my card along with a sneak peek of a Sale-A-Bration item coming soon.

I started by adhering a panel of In Good Taste Designer Series Paper to a Just Jade card base using Stampin’ Seal. I embossed a panel of the Oh So Ombre 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper using the Scripty 3D Embossing Folder. The Oh So Ombre DSP will be a Sale-A-Bration item available in January/February 2021. I adhered the panel to the Just Jade card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Whisper White Cardstock I stamped 3 of the small succulent images, 1 of the larger succulent image, the flower pot image and the sentiment from the Simply Succulents stamp set (available January 5,2021) in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. I colored the images in using my Gray Granite, Just Jade, Rococo Rose and Soft Seafoam Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the images out using the Potted Succulents Dies (available January 5, 2021). Using the Potted Succulents Dies, I cut one die from a panel of Pear Pizzazz cardstock and two from a panel of Pretty Peacock cardstock.

I adhered the flower pot to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I arranged the succulents the way I wanted them and adhered them using Glue Dots and Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the sentiment below the flowerpot using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few of the Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels to my card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Best Year Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel. I stamped the largest succulent image from the Simply Succulents stamp set in Just Jade Ink, stamping off twice, over the sentiment. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Rococo Rose mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Just Jade card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the succulent image from the Simply Succulents stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front and colored them in using my Just Jade and Rococo Rose Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of In Good Taste DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today, I hope you liked my card. The Simply Succulent Bundle and Oh So Ombre DSP will be available for you to purchase January 5, 2021 from the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog and the Sale-A-Bration Catalog. If you are one of my customers and have made a purchase this year, I will be sending a catalog out to you as soon as they become available. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Zany Zebras Birthday

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone’s weekend going? I’m heading into work again today. I was hoping to have the day off, but they put me on the schedule. It’s a short day at the dog bakery though, I don’t go in until noon and I’m done by 5pm.

For today’s card a co-worker asked me to make her nieces daughter a 1st birthday card. It took me a bit to come up with something, since I thought I didn’t have anything appropriate for a 1 year old. Then I remembered and here’s what I came up with.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Zany Zebras Cling Stamp Set for my card along with a sneak peek inside of a new set coming in the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog.

I started by cutting a panel of Whisper White cardstock using the largest Stitched Triangle Dies. I stamped the adorable little zebra image from the Zany Zebras stamp set in Magenta Madness Ink on the bottom of the triangle. I added a little color to her stripes, mane and tail using my Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends Markers. I then embossed the triangle using the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder. From that same panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the zebra image again in Magenta Madness Ink and I stamped the sentiment from the Zany Zebras stamp set in Magenta Madness Ink. I used some washi tape to cover the happy part of the sentiment so I would just get the birthday. I cut the sentiment out using the smallest die from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies and I fussy cut the zebra using my Paper Snips, not cutting the mane or the tail. I added some color to her stripes using my Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I adhered the fussy cut zebra on top of the stamped zebra on the triangle using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the triangle to a Whisper White card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I cut all the letters and the #1 from a panel of Rainbow Glimmer Paper, which I adhered to a Foam Adhesive Sheet, using the Playful Alphabets Dies.

I cut 3 of the small balloons out using the Happy Dies one in Granny Apple Green, one in Highland Heather and one in Mango Melody. I embossed the Granny Apple Green and Highland Heather balloons using the Wrapped In Texture Embossing Folder. I cut the 3 strings and 3 bows from a panel of Magenta Madness cardstock using the Happy Dies. I adhered the strings to the back of the balloons using Glue Dots and the bows to the bottom of the balloons using a tiny amount of Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the balloons to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the #1 to the Mango Melody balloon. I adhered the letters to the card front the way I wanted them and adhered the die cut birthday under the happy using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added some Artistry Blooms Adhesive-Backed Sequins to the card front. I adhered the card front to a Granny Apple Green mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to a Magenta Madness card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped a sentiment from a new set coming in the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog, the Stampin’ Up! Many Messages Cling Stamp Set. This is 1 large stamp with 19 sentiments on it. I used my Stamparatus to get just the one sentiment centered on a panel of Whisper White Cardstock. I used my Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Write Marker to ink up just the sentiment I wanted to use. I stamped the zebra image from the Zany Zebras stamp set to the side of the sentiment in Magenta Madness Ink and I stamped the party hat from the Zany Zebras stamp set in Magenta Madness Ink on the opposite side. I added color to the strips on the zebra and the pom-pom on the hat using my Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends Markers. I colored the dots on the hat in using my Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Write Marker. I stamped the grass image from the Zany Zebras stamp set under the zebra in Granny Apple Green Ink. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Granny Apple Green mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Magenta Madness card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the zebra image from the Zany Zebras stamp set in Magenta Madness Ink on the envelope front. I stamped the grass image from the Zany Zebras stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink below the zebra. I added some color to the zebras stripes, mane and tail using my Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of Artistry Blooms 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! Dragonfly Garden Friend Birthday Sneak Peek

Good Saturday morning my fellow stampers. How has everyone’s weekend started off? I’ll be at work all day today.

I have 1 more sneak peek card from last weekends OnStage@Home event for you. I can’t believe it’s already been a week since our OnStage@Home event. I’m loving these designs that the demonstrator came up with for these cards. They really showcase the whole suite. Here’s my take on the last design.

This card once again uses the Stampin’ Up! Dragonfly Garden Bundle. Everyone’s card is a little different depending on which pattern of DSP they chose.

I started by stamping the wildflower image from the Stampin’ Up! Dragonfly Garden Photopolymer Stamp Set in Mossy Meadow Ink in the center of a Smoky Slate card front. I stamped the sentiment from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink on the bottom of the panel.

I adhered the 3 panels of Dandy Garden 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper that I chose to the right of the flowers using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I wrapped a piece of the Mossy Meadow 3/16″ Braided Lined Trim (available January 5,2021) around the card front and tied a bow.

I cut 3 of the small dragonflies out of a panel of Whisper White cardstock using the Dragonflies Punch. I brushed them using my Clear Wink of Stella and adhered them to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the card front to a Blackberry Bliss card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel. I stamped the wildflower image from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink on either side of the panel. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Smoky Slate mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Blackberry Bliss card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the wildflower image from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the Dandy Garden DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today, I hope you liked my card. All items used for this card will be available from the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog on January 5th, 2021. If you are one of my customers and have placed an order in the past year I will be sending a catalog out to you as soon as I receive them. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Garden Wishes Sneak Peek for my Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? I hope you all had a productive one. Does anyone have plans for the weekend? I’ll be working all day tomorrow. It’s been a rainy few days here but of course it’s suppose to be sunny tomorrow.

Today’s card I made on my Facebook Live video on Wednesday. If you were able to join me or watched the replay, thank you very much. If you’d like to watch my video and stamp along, the measurements are below along with the links to my Facebook page and my YouTube channel. You won’t be able to make the exact card unless you were able to purchase these set already. Both stamp sets and the DSP will be available in the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog. Here’s the card that I made.

I used the new Stampin’ Up! Garden Wishes Cling Stamp Set and the Stampin’ Up! Dragonfly Garden Cling Stamp Set to make my card today.

I started by lightly adhering a panel of the Dandy Garden 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Bumblebee card base using a tiny amount of Stampin’ Seal just on 2 of the corners to hold it in place. I cut the center out using the 2nd largest die from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. I set the pieces to the side and adhered the Dandy Garden DSP to the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I tied a piece of the Misty Moonlight 2020-2022 In-Color 1/4″ Ribbon around the card front and tied a bow. I added a Glue Dot under the bow to hold it in place.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the dandelion image from the Garden Wishes stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. I stamped the flower center image from the Garden Wishes stamp set in Bumblebee Ink, stamping off once, in the center of the dandelion. I colored the stem and leave in using my Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image out using the 3rd largest die from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. I adhered the artwork to the Bumblebee mat (which I cut out from the card base earlier), using Stampin’ Seal.

I adhered a panel of Dandy Garden DSP to the inner card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue then adhered the matted artwork to it using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a couple of the Ladybug Trinkets to the artwork using Glue Dots.

On the inside Z-Fold card I stamped the wild flower image from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the sentiment from the Garden Wishes stamp set in the center of the Whisper White panel I stamped the dragonfly image from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set in Bumblebee Ink on the top and bottom corners of the panel, masking it with a Post-It note so that I didn’t get ink on the side panel. I colored the flowers in using my Calypso Coral and Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the inner card base to a Misty Moonlight mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Bumblebee card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the dandelion image from the Garden Wishes stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front. I stamped the flower center image from the Garden Wishes stamp set in bumblebee Ink, stamping off once, in the center of the dandelion. I colored the leaves and stem in using my Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the dragonfly image from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set in Bumblebee Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the Dandy 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. The list of measurements are below if you’d like to stamp along while watching the video. The stamp sets and DSP for my project today will be available in the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog on January 5, 2021.

Stampin’ Up! In The Pines 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.  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 used the Stampin’ Up! In The Pines Bundle for today’s card. I played along with the Double ‘D’ Challenge. Their theme is Pine Trees and/or Pine Cones. Here is their Mood Board.

I started by adhering a panel of Heartwarming Hugs Designer Series Paper to a Real Red card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped 2 of the largest tree and the group of 4 tree outlines from the Stampin’ Up! In The Pines Photopolymer Stamp Set in Old Olive Ink. I stamped the fill images for the same trees in Old Olive Ink, stamping off once. I stamped the tall tree outline from In The Pines stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink on the Whisper White panel and the fill image for the same tree in Mossy Meadow Ink, stamped off once. I cut all the trees out using my Pine Woods Dies.

I took another panel of Whisper White cardstock and using the Pine Woods Dies, I cut the 2 snow curve images starting from the bottom. On the remaining cut piece I stamped the group of 4 tree outlines from the In The Pines stamp set in Old Olive Ink, some stamped full and some stamped off, across the panel. I randomly stamped the snow dots image from In The Pines stamp set on the top of the panel in Pool Party Ink, stamped off once. I stamped all over the top of the panel with the same stamp in Versamark Ink. I immediately sprinkled it with my White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I adhered the 2 curves to the stamped piece, adhering the 1st one with Glue Dots just on the ends and the top one using Stamping Dimensionals. I lined these up on my Grid Paper so that it measured 3 1/4″ X 5 1/2″. I stamped the snow drift image from the In The Pines stamp set, where I was going to be placing the die cut trees, in Pool Party Ink on the front panel. I adhered the die cut trees on the panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals, some behind the drifts and some in front.

On a strip of Mossy Meadow cardstock I stamped the sentiment from In The Pines 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 few Real Red Wonderful Gems to the artwork panel. I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Wrapped In Christmas Cling Stamp Set in Mossy Meadow Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel. I stamped the group of 4 trees outline stamp from In The Pines stamp set in Old Olive Ink across the bottom of the panel stamped in full strength, then stamped again without re-inking. I stamped the snow drift image from In The Pines stamp set below the trees in Pool Party Ink. Using the Pine Woods Dies, I cut the bottom of the panel using the smallest curve die. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Mossy Meadow mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Real Red card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the small 4 tree outline image from In The Pines stamp set on the envelope front stamped full strength then again without re-inking. I also stamped the single small tree outline image from In The Pines stamp set in Old Olive Ink stamped full strength and again without re-inking. I stamped the snowdrift image from In The Pines stamp set in Pool Party Ink below the trees. I adhered a panel of Heartwarming Hugs DSP to the envelope flap.
