Stampin’ Up! Cottage Wreaths Hello

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends and welcome to the weekend. I hope you have something fun in the works for this weekend.

I got some new dies a few weeks ago and was finally able to play with them. I’m really liking them and may be using them a lot more often. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Cottage Wreaths Hello 1

I used the Stampin’ Up! Cottage Wreaths Bundle along with the Cup of Tea Bundle for my card today.

I started by cutting a Soft Sea Foam card front using the Split Card Texture Dies. I adhered the die cut panel to an Evening Evergreen card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic Whtie cardstock, I stamped the wreath image from the Stampin’ Up! Cottage Wreaths Photopolymer Stamp Set in Soft Succulent Ink. I stamped the small flower image from the Stampin’ Up! Cut of Tea Photopolymer Stamp Set in Calypso Coral and Petal Pink Inks. I cut the images out using my Country Wreaths Dies and Teacup Dies. Using my Country Wreaths Dies, I cut the detailed wreath from a panel of soft Succulent cardstock, the leaves from a panel of Soft Sea Foam cardstock and the bow from a panel of Rose Gold Specialty Paper.

I adhered the detailed wreath to the stamped wreath image using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the small leaves using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the flowers using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the bow using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the wreath to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment from the Cottage Wreaths stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink on the panel of Basic White cardstock. I cut the sentiment using the smallest die from the Stylish Shapes Dies and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Cottage Wreaths stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the small flower image from the Cup of Tea stamp set in Calypso Coral and Petal Pink Inks next to the sentiment. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Soft Sea Foam mat and then to the inside of the Evening Evergreen card base.

I stamped the flower image from the Cup of Tea stamp set in Calypso Coral and Petal Pink Inks on the envelope front and flap.

Stampin’ Up! Cheerful Basket Thank You with Video Tutorial

Good Friday morning my stamping friends welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? I had a bit of an exciting week starting off Monday. You’ll see below. Has anyone made any plans for the weekend yet? I’ll be working all day tomorrow and Sunday again.

So, before I get started with my card, last week I missed my live because we went to meet a puppy. It’s been a really sad house here since my Jasmine puppy passed. Unfortunately, the puppy was listed as a female lab/border collie mix and that was wrong. I was going to just wait until spring and this little cutie came to me. Meet Coraline. She’s a 10-week-old mix breed. I just ordered a DNA kit to find out what she is. She was listed as a lab/border collie mix, I think there might be more. I’ll let you know once I find out. She is such a good girl already. I’ve got her house broken, sleeping through the night and walking on a leash. She knows the sit command and touch already. She knows where my card making table is and runs ahead of me down the stairs to curl up while I make my cards.

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. 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. Here is my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Cheerful Basket Fun Fold 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Cheerful Basket Bundle along with the Stampin’ Up! Apple Harvest Cling Stamp Set and the Perfectly Penciled Designer Series Paper for my card today.

Stampin' Up! Cheerful Basket Fun Fold 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by coloring a panel of Perfectly Penciled DSP using my Flirty Flamingo and Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the panel to a Real Red mat and then to a Basic White Thick card base. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment, the apple, the cat and the butterfly images from the Stampin’ Up! Cheerful Basket Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the images in using my Daffodil Delight, Flirty Flamingo, Granny Apple Green, Real Red and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut all the images out using my Full Basket Dies.

Stampin' Up! Cheerful Basket Fun Fold 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

I cut the largest tag die from the Designer Tags Dies from a panel of Basic White cardstock. I cut one end of the tag off using my Paper Snips and embossed the tag using the Gingham Embossing Folder. Using my Full Basket Dies, I cut the detailed basket from a panel of Crumb Cake cardstock, the basket bands from Soft Suede cardstock, the leaves from Granny Apple Green Cardstock, the handle from Smoky Slate cardstock and the solid basket, napkin and apples from Real Red cardstock. I adhered the solid red basket behind the detailed basket using Stampin’ Dimensionals and trimmed the excess using my Paper Snips. I adhered the colored apples to the basket using Multipurpose Liquid Glue to the back of the basket. I adhered the basket to the embossed tag. I threaded a piece of Real Red ribbon from the Real Red & Garden Green 3/8″ Ribbon Combo Pack through the tag and tied it off. I adhered the tag to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Cheerful Basket Fun Fold 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

I adhered the cat next to the basket using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the butterfly to the top of the tag and the extra apples to the bottom of the card front. I cut the sentiment using my Stylish Shapes Dies and adhered it to the top of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Cheerful Basket Fun Fold 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

This next part is much easier to understand if you watch the video or my Instagram Reel. On the I folded the 5 1/8″ x 5 1/4″ panel of Real Red cardstock on the 1″ & 2″ score lines. I folded the 5 3/8″ X 5 1/4″ panel of Real Red cardstock on the 3 1/8″ score line. I adhered the 1″fold to the back of the 3 1/8″ fold using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the folded panel to the inside of the Basic White Thick card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Cheerful Basket Fun Fold 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

I adhered a colored panel of Perfectly Penciled DSP to the right inside of the card base. On a 2 3/8″ x 5 1/8″ panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the small apple branch from the Apple Harvest stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image using my Granny Apple Green, Real Red and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the panel to the center of the inner liner. On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the large apple branch image from the Apple Harvest stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image using my Flirty Flamingo, Granny Apple Green, Real Red and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers. I fussy cut the image using my Paper Snips (the dies for this stamp set will be available Sept 1st). I adhered the cut image to the center panel so that it would overhang. On the 3″ X 5 1/8″ panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment and the small flower image from the Apple Harvest stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the flower using my Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the panel to the left side of the inner liner.

Stampin' Up! Cheerful Basket Fun Fold 7 creativestampingdesigns.com

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the apple image from the Cheerful Basket stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I colored the image using my Granny Apple Green and Real Red Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a colored panel of Perfectly Penciled DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin' Up! Gathered Wheat 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Gathered Wheat Bundle along with the Gingham Cottage Designer Series Paper for my card today.

Here is our theme for this week.

Stampin' Up! Gathered Wheat 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by stamping the small wheat image from the Stampin’ Up! Gathered Wheat Cling Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink on a Soft Suede card base. I adhered a panel of the Gingham Cottage DSP to the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Gathered Wheat 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the large wheat image from the Gathered Wheat stamp set in Soft Suede Ink. I stamped the splatter image from the Gathered Wheat stamp set in Crushed Curry Ink on the top of the wheat image. I stamped the sentiment from the Gathered Wheat stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the top of Basic Whtie panel. I cut the image out using the Wheat Dies. From a panel of Crushed Curry cardstock, I cut the small wheat dies and the border die from the Wheat Dies. I stamped the sentiment from the Gathered Wheat stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the Basic Whtie panel.

Stampin' Up! Gathered Wheat 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

I adhered the border wheat die to the bottom of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the large wheat image to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the small wheat die cuts behind the large image using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I tied a multi loop bow from Linen Thread and adhered it to the wheat using a Glue Dot. I adhered the die cut sentiment to the top of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Brushed Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dots to the top of the card front.

Stampin' Up! Gathered Wheat 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

I stamped the sentiment from the Gathered Wheat stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the small wheat image from the Gathered Wheat stamp set in Crushed Curry Ink on either side of the panel, stamping some full strength and some stamped off once on scrap paper. I adhered the Basic Whtie panel to a Real Red mat and then to the inside of the Soft Suede card base.

Stampin' Up! Gathered Wheat 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the smaller wheat image from the Gathered Wheat stamp set in Crushed Curry Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of Gingham Cottage DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Lovely & Lasting Hello

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone’s week going? We’re halfway through and on our way to the weekend.

I have a fun, cheery card today using a set from the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Lovely & Lasting Hello 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Lovely & Lasting Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Tea Boutique 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my card today.

Stampin' Up! Lovely & Lasting Hello 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by adhering a panel of the Tea Boutique DSP to a Garden Green mat. I adhered the layered panel to a Fresh Freesia card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Lovely & Lasting Hello 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

On one panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the large flower image from the Lovely & Lasting stamp set in Garden Green Ink. On another panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the same image in Fresh Freesia Ink. I fussy cut the Fresh Freesia flowers using my Paper Snips. I cut the panel stamped with the Garden Green image using my Deckled Rectangle Dies. I stamped the sentiment from the Lovely & Lasting stamp set on the top of the panel in Garden Green Ink.

Stampin' Up! Lovely & Lasting Hello 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

I adhered the fussy cut flowers to the die cut panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Fresh Freesia 2021-2023 In-Color Opal Rounds to the card front.

Stampin' Up! Lovely & Lasting Hello 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Lovely & Lasting stamp set in Garden Green Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the small flower image from the Lovely & Lasting stamp set in Fresh Freesia Ink above the sentiment. I adhered a strip of the Tea Boutique DSP to the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Garden Green mat and then to the inside of the Fresh Freesia card base.

Stampin' Up! Lovely & Lasting Hello 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of the Tea Boutique DSP to the envelope front and a panel to the envelope flap. I also stamped the small flower image from the Lovely & Lasting stamp set in Fresh Freesia Ink on the envelope front.

Stampin’ Up! Season of Chic Thinking of You

Good Monday morning my stamping friends welcome to a new week. How was everyone’s weekend? It was a hot muggy one here in NJ. I was actually happy to be inside working.

Today’s card is a quick one that I think came out pretty nice. It’s a simple one and one that you can easily duplicate. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Season Of Chic 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Season of Chic Bundle for my card today.

Stampin' Up! Season Of Chic 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by stamping the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Season of Chic Photopolymer Stamp Set in Versamark Ink on the bottom of a Very Vanilla card front. I sprinkled it with my Gold Embossing Powder from the Metallic Embossing Powders and set it using my Heat Tool.

Stampin' Up! Season Of Chic 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

I embossed the card front using the Leaf Fall 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the card front to a Very Vanilla mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I wrapped a piece of the Gold & Very Vanilla 3/8″ Satin Edged Ribbon around the layered panel and tied a knot. I adhered the layered panel to a Very Vanilla Thick card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a Brushed Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dot by the sentiment.

Stampin' Up! Season Of Chic 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the detailed leaf image from the Season of Chic stamp set in Versamark Ink. I sprinkled it with my Gold Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I cut the image out using the Chic Dies. I cut 3 of the detailed leaf dies from the Chic Dies from a panel of Distressed Gold Specialty Paper. I adhered the embossed leaf and 2 of the die cut gold leaves to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Season Of Chic 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment and detailed leaf image from the Season of Chic stamp set in Versamark Ink on a Very Vanilla panel. I sprinkled it with my Gold Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to the inside of the Very Vanilla Thick card base.

Stampin' Up! Season Of Chic 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To finish my card, I decorated a Very Vanilla Medium Envelope. I stamped the detailed leaf image from the Season of Chic stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the envelope front and envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Friends Are Like Seashells Thank You

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend. It’s been hot and humid here still and I have no desire to be outside. I’ll be at the dog bakery today and since it’s been so hot, not many dogs have been coming in.

I had fun playing and building today’s card. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Friends Are Like Seashells Thank You 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Friends Are Like Seashells Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Rustic Harvest Designer Series Paper for my card today.

My design is from Try Stampin’ On Tuesday Challenge #567.

My colors are from Color Throwdown challenge #704. Although the colors don’t scream beachy, I made it work, I think.

Stampin' Up! Friends Are Like Seashells Thank You 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by adhering a panel of Rustic Harvest DSP to a Crumb Cake card base. I cut 9 of the smallest circles from the Layering Circle Dies from a panel of Basic White cardstock. I cut 9 of the smallest scalloped circles from the Layering Circle Dies from a panel of Basic Black cardstock. On the 5 Basic White circles I stamped the seaweed images from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Mossy meadow Ink, one stamped full strength and one stamped off once on scrap paper. On the remaining 4 circles I stamped the 2 smallest seashell images from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink.

Stampin' Up! Friends Are Like Seashells Thank You 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

I adhered the 9 Basic White circles to the 9 Basic Black scalloped circles using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the layered circles to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Friends Are Like Seashells Thank You 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I cut the sentiment out using my Seasonal Labels Dies. I adhered a piece of Black Baker’s Twine from the Baker’s Twine Essential Pack to the card front using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the sentiment over the twine using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Classic Matte Dots by the sentiment and a couple Pearl Basic Jewels on 2 of the seashell circles.

Stampin' Up! Friends Are Like Seashells Thank You 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the seaweed images from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink on the bottom of the panel, one stamped in full strength and the others stamped off once on scrap paper. I stamped the seashell image next to the seaweed in Crumb Cake Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Mossy Meadow mat and then to the inside of the Crumb Cake card base.

Stampin’ Up! Trimming The Tree CAS

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends and welcome to the weekend. I hope you are making some fun plans. I’ll be working all day today and I have this feeling that it is going to be busy. Today is our annual Children’s Miracle Network Promotion. Customers donate $5, get a 5-gallon bucket and almost anything they can fit into that bucket they get 20% off of. Good deal and a lot of people look forward to it.

I have a CAS Christmas card today using a set from the Annual Catalog along with some Sale-a-bration DSP that is still available. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Trimming The Tree CAS 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

My CAS card today features the Stampin’ Up! Trimming The Tree Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Lights Aglow 6 X 6 Specialty Designer Series Paper and the Silver & Gold 6 X 6 Sale-a-bration Specialty Paper.

My design is from Global Design Project Sketch Challenge #354.

My colors are from Cardz 4 Galz Challenge #178 Black+White +1 Other Colour. I used Gold for my additional color.

Stampin' Up! Trimming The Tree CAS 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by adhering a panel of the Silver & Gold DSP to a panel of Gold Foil Paper. I adhered the layered panel to a Basic White Thick card base.

Stampin' Up! Trimming The Tree CAS 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Trimming the Tree stamp set in Versamark Ink. I sprinkled it with my Gold Embossing Powder from my Metallic Embossing Powder. I set it using my Heat Tool.

Stampin' Up! Trimming The Tree CAS 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

I cut the sentiment out using the Designer Tags Dies. I cut a panel of Lights Aglow DSP using the same Designer Tags Dies. I cut the tag partially then moved the die down on the paper and cut it from the other side to make the tag longer. I threaded a piece of Gold Simply Elegant Trim through the tags and knotted them off. I adhered the tags to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a Brushed Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dot to the sentiment.

Stampin' Up! Trimming The Tree CAS 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment and bow image from the Trimming the Tree stamp set in Versamark Ink on a Basic White panel. I sprinkled it with my Gold Embossing Powder and set it with my Heat Tool. I adhered a strip of the Lights Aglow DSP to the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Basic Black mat and then to the inside of the Basic White Thick card base.

Stampin' Up! Trimming The Tree CAS 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of the Lights Aglow DSP to the envelope front and a panel to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Cottage Rose for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. I hope everyone had a great week and you are looking forward to an even better weekend. I’ll be at work both days this weekend.

I’m sorry I missed my Facebook live this past Wednesday. Something came up last minute and we had to leave the house by 4:30, nothing bad though. So since I couldn’t go live this week, I decided to hold onto the card I was going to make and come up with something else quick. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Cottage Rose Fun Fold 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Cottage Rose Bundle along with the Abigail Rose Designer Series Paper for my card today.

Here is a template of my card.

Stampin' Up! Cottage Rose Fun Fold 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

Once I made all my score and cut lines and folded the card, I adhered panels of Abigail Rose DSP to the front and sides of the card base. On a panel of Crumb Cake cardstock, I stamped the large rose image form the Stampin’ Up! Cottage Rose Cling Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink. I colored the rose using my Watercolor Pencils. I colored the leaves using the Old Olive Watercolor Pencil. For the rose, I first colored it with my White Watercolor Pencil then I went over the highlighted areas with my Flirty Flaming Watercolor Pencil. I cut the rose out using my Cottage Flowers Dies, I also cut the detailed flowers from a panel of Petal Pink cardstock and the detailed leaves from a panel of Old Olive cardstock.

Stampin' Up! Cottage Rose Fun Fold 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

I adhered the detailed flowers and leaves to the back of the large rose image using Glue Dots. I did leave some of the solid pieces in the detailed flowers. I adhered the rose collage to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Cottage Rose Fun Fold 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Cottage Rose stamp set in Soft Suede Ink. I cut the sentiment out using the 2nd smallest die from the Stitched Rectangle Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the bottom of the panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

Stampin' Up! Cottage Rose Fun Fold 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside, I stamped the sentiments from the Cottage Rose stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on a panel of Abigail Rose DSP. I adhered the stamped panel to a Petal Pink mat and then to the inside of the Pear Pizzazz card base.

Stampin' Up! Cottage Rose Fun Fold 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To finish my card, I decorated a Very Vanilla Medium Envelope. I stamped the leaf image from the Cottage Rose stamp set in Old Olive Ink along the bottom front of the envelope. I adhered a panel of Abigail Rose DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Very Best Occasions for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. I hope everyone is doing well today. If you are hopping over from Akiko’s blog, thank you for stopping by. This week we have a Sketch Challenge. Here is my card using this week’s Sketch.

Stampin' Up! Very Best Occasions 1 creativestampiungdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Very Best Occasions Cling Stamp Set along with the Stampin’ Up! Sale-a-bration Wonderful World Bundle for my card today.

Here is this week’s sketch.

Stampin' Up! Very Best Occasions 2 creativestampiungdesigns.com

I started by adhering a panel of Wonderful World Designer Series Paper to a Starry Sky card base.

Stampin' Up! Very Best Occasions 3 creativestampiungdesigns.com

I cut a panel of the Wonderful World DSP using my Deckled Rectangle Dies. I adhered the die cut panel of DSP to a Mossy Meadow mat. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered a piece of the Gold Simply Elegant Trim to the card front using Stampin’ Seal. I stamped the sentiment from the Very Best Occasions stamp set in Starry Sky Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I cut the sentiment out using my Double Oval Punch. I cut a scalloped oval from a panel of Starry Sky cardstock using the Double Oval Punch. I adhered the sentiment to the scalloped oval using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered sentiment on top of the trim using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added an Elegant Faceted Gem to the sentiment.

Stampin' Up! Very Best Occasions 5 creativestampiungdesigns.com

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Very Best Occasions stamp set in Stary Sky Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the leaf image from the Stampin’ Up! Sale-a-bration Wonderful World Cling Stamp Set in Mossy Meadow Ink by the sentiment. I stamped the iris image from the Wonderful World stamp set on the bottom of the panel. I inked the stamp using my Starry Sky and Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Write Markers, gave it a little huff and stamped on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Mossy Meadow mat and then to the inside of the Starry Sky card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the iris image from the Wonderful World stamp set on the bottom front of the envelope inking it up the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of Wonderful World DSP to the envelope flap.
