Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend.
For today’s card, I asked my daughter to pick a stamp set and give me a color to work with. Sometimes (well a lot of times), I get crafters block. It especially happens when a new catalog comes out and I don’t know what to play with first. Sometimes I’ll go for a walk for some inspiration and other times I’ll just flip through my catalog. This time I thought I’d let her pick for me. I left it wide open telling her it could be a set or a bundle and whatever color she picked I’d work with. Here’s what I came up with from her choices.
She picked the Stampin’ Up! Sit Stay Relax Host Cling Stamp Set. This set is one of our Host sets that could be free with an order or a party over $150. I also used the new pattern Subtle 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my card today.
I started by adhering a panel of Subtle DSP to a Soft Suede mat. I adhered the layered panel to a Balmy Blue card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the 2 images from the Sit Stay Relax stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the images in using my Balmy Blue, Bronze Crumb Cake and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the images out using my Stylish Shapes Dies. Using my Stylish Shapes Dies, I cut 2 of the size smaller circles from a panel of Soft Suede cardstock. I adhered the 2 Soft Suede die cut circles to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the 2 stamped die cut circles over the Soft Suede die cut circles using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
On the panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Sit Stay Relax stamp set in Soft Suede Ink. I cut the sentiment out using my Stylish Shapes Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Solid Faceted Gems to the card front.
On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Sit Stay Relax stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the other cat on chair image from the Sit Stay Relax stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom of the panel. I colored the image using my Balmy Blue, Bronze Stampin’ Blends Markers and SU500 from the Natural Tones Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a strip of the Subtle DSP to the side of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Soft Suede mat and then to the inside of the Balmy Blue card base.
To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the dog on the chair image from the Sit Stay Relax stamp set on the envelope front and colored it the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of the Subtle 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!!
