Stampin’ Up! Desert Details

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends. How has everyone’s week started off? We woke up to a blanket of snow this morning. Sadly, it will be gone by this afternoon. As much as I love a good snowstorm that I am stuck in the house and all I can do is craft, my 2nd favorite kind of snow is what we woke up to. It snowed on the grass and trees, but not the sidewalk or street, so no shoveling. Tonight, is my monthly Stamp Camp Card Class, so I’ll be prepping this morning and getting everything ready for the ladies.

Today’s card is one that could be used for anything. I made it with nothing specific in mind, which I love having on hand so I can add my own note inside. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Desert Details 1

I used the Stampin’ Up! Desert Details Bundle along with the Delicate Desert Designer Series Paper and the Dry Brushed Metallic Specialty Paper for my card today.

I started by adhering a panel of Delicate Desert DSP to a Soft Succulent card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. Ustin the Desert Details Dies, I cut a panel of Gray Granite cardstock with the larger frame die and a panel of Basic White cardstock with the smaller frame die. I adhered the Basic Whtie to the Gray Granite using Stampin’ Seal. I threaded a piece of Gray Granite Bakers Twine from the Bakers Twine Essential Pack through the frame twice and tied a bow.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the 2 flower images from the Stampin’ Up! Desert Details Cling Stamp Set in Gray Granite Ink. I cut the images out with the Desert Details Dies. I brushed the inside of the flowers using the Small Blending Brush and Pale Papaya Ink. Using the aloe leaf die from the Desert Details Dies, I cut 1 from a panel of Soft Succulent cardstock and 2 from a panel of Dry Brushed Metallic Paper. I adhered the flowers to the layered panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the aloe die cut pieces under the flowers using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a strip of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Desert Details stamp set in Gray Granite Ink. I cut the words apart using my Paper Snips. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added Gold Faceted Adhesive-Backed Sequins to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Desert Details stamp set in Gray Granite Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the large flower image from the Desert Details stamp set in Gray Granite Ink on the bottom of the panel. I brushed Pale Papaya Ink in the center using the Small Blending Brush. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Gray Granite mat then to the inside of the Soft Succulent card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the large flower image from the Desert Details stamp set on the envelope front in Gray Granite Ink. I brushed color on the inside using my Small Blending Brush with Pale Papaya Ink. I adhered a panel of Delicate Desert DSP to the envelope flap.

In response to changing policies at Stampin’ Up – I’m adjusting my Ordering Gift policy as well.  I’m having to get a little more tough on the adding of Host codes when you place your order thru my Online Store.

Not to worry – you’re still going to get that $10 ordering gift for orders of $50 (before shipping & tax) or greater.  And the gift is still any 1 SU! product up to that $10 value – which includes some of our fun Host Sets!

But – if you DO NOT use the Host code for your orders of less than $150 (this is the RETAIL total before Shipping & Handling), then you’ll have two options:

  1. You’ll need to call Stampin’ Up! (1-800-Stamp-Up) and ask them to add it for you. They’re very helpful and will get it done quickly!  OR….
  2. If your order was over the $50 threshold but under $150, then…you’ll forfeit that $10 ordering gift and rewards – this is the Bummer Option – and I REALLY don’t want to do this, SO please remember to add my Current Host Code.
