Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Friendship for The Card Concepts

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. We’re halfway through the week already and on our way to the weekend. I hope you are starting to make some plans. I actually have today off since I worked both Monday and Tuesday for the end and beginning of the month’s bills. I’m so used to having Tuesday’s off and working on Wednesday’s that I lose track of what day it is. I’m still trying to wrap my head around March being here already. Before you know it, Spring and Summer will be here, my favorite seasons of the year.

Before I get started, today is a very special day. It’s my little fur baby, Jasmine’s 14th birthday. She’s been my side kick for the last 13 3/4 years following me everywhere I go and always happy to see me, I can’t imagine life without her. The best part is she doesn’t talk back and no student loans to pay. Happy Birthday my sweet baby.

When we got her in May of 2008
One of her favorite places to lay down
She loves our new patio as much as us
Her new favorite spot now

It’s time for another inspiration challenge for The Card Concepts. The inspiration photo this week is Wearing O’ The Green.  Here is my card that was inspired from the challenge photo.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Friendship Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Beauty of The Earth Designer Series Paper for my Clean and Layered card today. I was inspired by the tree and colors in the photo for my card.

I hope you will take a moment to visit The Card Concepts and join us for our challenge #170.  How are you inspired by this photo?

I started by embossing a Bumblebee card front using the Timber 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered a panel of Beauty of The Earth DSP to the left side of the panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered a panel of Beauty of The Earth DSP to an Early Espresso mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to the card front and a strip of Beauty of The Earth DSP over the panel towards the bottom of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the card front to an Early Espresso card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the tree trunk image from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set in Early Espresso Ink. I stamped the leaf image from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set in Old Olive Ink on the branches. I stamped the detail leaf image from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink over the other leaf image. I stamped the splatter image from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set in Bumblebee Ink around the tree image. I cut the image out using the 2nd largest circle from the Layering Circles Dies. I stamped the sentiment from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set in Old Olive Ink next to the tree image. I adhered the artwork to a coordinating scalloped circle that I cut from a panel of Early Espresso cardstock using my Layering Circles Dies. I adhered the layered artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Brushed Metallic Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set in Old Olive Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the tree, leaf and splatter images from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set the same as I did for the card front on the bottom left of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Bumblebee mat and then to the inside of the Early Espresso card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic Whtie Medium Envelope. I stamped the tree, leaf and splatter images from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set on the envelope front the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of Beauty of The Earth 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!!

Paper Pumpkin Price Increases Beginning March 1

On March 1, 2022, Paper Pumpkin kits will see a slight increase in price for both month-to-month orders and prepaid subscriptions. Despite Covid’s continued strain on the global economy, Stampin’ Up! has been working diligently to maintain the lowest possible price for our Paper Pumpkin kits–including absorbing costs to prevent price increases. However, as we continue to see greater cost increases to raw materials, shipping, and overhead, we have made the decision to increase pricing in order to maintain the high quality and value of the monthly kit.

Here are the details:

You will begin to see the price change on paper pumpkin.com

beginning February 11, with the start of the March subscription period.

Shipping added based on order total at time of check out. 

Prepaid codes–both redeemed and unredeemed–purchased before the 1 March price change will maintain their full value. No additional payment will be required. 

Prices for past kits and refills released before March 1, 2022 will remain unchanged.

Let me know if you have any questions about the price changes.  ***If you purchase Prepaid Paper Pumpkin Kits during February, you’ll save a few $$ and possibly earn some free Sale-a-bration items too!
