Stampin’ Up! Nothing’s Better Than Cocktails

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend. Did anyone do anything fun or exciting? Looks like we’ll be cooling down a bit her for the next week. Only in the mid to upper 80’s, just in time for me to redo another one of my gardens. I’m planning on digging out a tree tomorrow and prettying up that garden. I bought a few hydrangea bushes a couple months ago and haven’t gotten them in the ground yet. Luckily I’ve kept them very alive and healthy in their pots.

I have a fun card for today using another older set from the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog. My neighbors birthday is next weekend and she loves her cocktails. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Nothing’s Better Than Photopolymer Stamp Set along with a little of the Bloom Where You’re Planted Designer Series Paper for my card today.

My colors are from the Color Throwdown Challenge #651.

I started by stamping the cocktail glass image from the Nothing’s Better Than stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped 2 of the glasses with Bermuda Bay and 2 with Magenta Madness Inks. I stamped the limes in Granny Apple Green Ink. I stamped 2 of the umbrellas in Bermuda Bay Ink, stamped off once, and 2 in Magenta Madness Ink, stamped off once. I cut all the images out using my Love You More Than Dies.

On a panel of Night of Navy cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Nothing’s Better Than stamp set in Versamark Ink. I immediately sprinkled it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder from the Basic Emboss Powder pack. I set it using my Heat Tool. Using my Love You More Than Dies, I cut a Basic White panel and a Rainbow Glimmer paper panel with the cocktails dies.

I adhered a panel of Bloom Where You’re Planted DSP to the bottom of the Night of Navy card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the cocktail glassed on top of the DSP using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I wrapped a piece of Linen Thread around the panel below the glasses but at the top of the DSP panel and tied a knot in the back. I adhered the die cut sentiments to the top of the panel off setting them a bit, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the card front to a Night of Navy card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few 2020-2022 In-Color Square Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped 2 of the sentiments from the Nothing’s Better Than stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Moments Cling Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink below the other 2. I stamped the cocktail glass image from the Nothing’s Better Than stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom of the panel and stamped the fill images the same as I did for the card front. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Magenta Madness mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Night of Navy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the cocktail images from the Nothing’s Better Than stamp set on the envelope front the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of Bloom Where You’re Planted DSP on 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!!

July-December 2021 Mini Catalog Designer Series Paper

I’m offering a Designer Series Paper share from the Stampin’ Up! July-December 2021 Mini Catalog and I’d love to have you join!!  I’m placing my share order early on August 3 and I’m going to use the expedited shipping option so I should be able to have the shares cut, bundled and back out to you during the week of August 9.

How my shares work:  I order full packs of all of the Designer Series Papers listed below, I cut them into 6″ x 6″ pieces (or 6″ x 12″ pieces for double shares) and give you one panel of each design from each pack on the list.  I pack up the paper in a cellophane bag and mail it back out to you just as quickly as I can!  Shares give you a good working sample of all of the papers so that you can decide which ones to order in full packs!

Here are the Designer Series Paper Shares that I am offering from the new Mini Catalog!

New Designer Series Paper Share – $25.00 plus $5.00 for 1st Class Mail shipping

You will receive one 6×6 sheet of each design from the following new DSP packs (the number behind the name indicates how many 6×6 sheets of that paper pack you will receive):

  • Gingerbread & Peppermint 6″ x 6″ – 12
  • Painted Christmas – 6
  • Whimsy & Wonder Specialty – 6
  • Sweet Stockings – 6
  • Peaceful Place Specialty – 6

In all, you’ll receive 75 – 6” x 6” sheets of new designer or speciality paper!

Double DSP Share – $50 + $7.75 Shipping by Priority Mail – if you’d like double shares of the designer paper, that’s fine too.  I’ll cut the designer paper sheets into 6×12 so that you’ll be able to get 3 full A2 size card fronts from each sheet (except for the Gingerbread & Peppermint, Cute Halloween and Kraft 6″ × 6″, you’ll get double sheets of those since they’re already precut).

Anyone is welcome to join in my share (please note, I can only ship to addresses within the US).  If you’d like to join, either complete the form below or email the following information to creativestampingdesigns@gmail.com
