Stampin’ Up! Pressed Petals Hello CAS

Good Sunday morning my fellow stampers.  How is everyone doing today?  I hope you are all enjoying your long weekend.  I’ll be at work all day today, but I have off tomorrow and Tuesday, YAY!!

I have another Clean and Simple card for you today using up some more of the Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper.  I love when the paper does the work for you.  Here’s my card.

Isn’t this paper just gorgeous!!  If you are liking this paper, grab it while you can.  It’ll be retiring June 2nd.  It’s on the retiring list and once it’s gone that’s it.

I started by stamping the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Grace’s Garden Photopolymer Stamp Set in Merry Merlot Ink on the top of the Pressed Petals Specialty DSP panel.  I cut the panel out using the largest rectangle from the Stitched Rectangle Dies.

I adhered the DSP panel to a Merry Merlot mat using Snail and then to a Merry Merlot card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Nobel Peacock Rhinestones to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from Grace’s Garden stamp set in the center of a Very Vanilla panel in Merry Merlot Ink.  I adhered 2 strips of Pressed Petals Specialty DSP to either side of the sentiment using Snail.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to the inside of the Merry Merlot card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I adhered a strip of Pressed Petals Specialty DSP to the front of the envelope and 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!!

Stampin’ Up! Sympathy Pressed Petals CAS

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends.  How has everyone’s weekend started off?  I’ve gotten 4 of my 7 gardens cleaned up and mulched.  My gardens are encircled with very large rocks and every couple years I have to lift all the rocks and rake the dirt under them and put them all back.  Since last year I had shoulder surgery and couldn’t do anything, this is the year to do it.  My other 3 gardens I will clean up and re-do the rocks and I’m planning on putting small rocks instead of mulch.  Does anyone have plans for today?  It’s suppose to be rainy here, so I won’t be working outside much.  I love crafting on rainy days, so I’m hoping to get some time in between work.

So for today I have a super easy Clean and Simple card for you.  As I said yesterday, I’m trying to use up some of my DSP before it retires for good.  Here’s my card.

Unfortunately I’ve used up the sympathy cards I keep on hand so I thought I’d make one to keep in my box. I like to keep a couple on hand, just in case.

I started by cutting a panel of the Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper that already had the encircled flowers on it.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Woven Heirlooms Cling Stamp Set in the center of the oval in Mossy Meadow Ink.

I adhered the DSP to a Mossy Meadow mat using Snail and then to a Mossy Meadow card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Well Said Cling Stamp Set in the center of a Very Vanilla panel in Mossy Meadow Ink.  I adhered 2 strips of the Pressed Petals Specialty DSP to the top and bottom of the panel using Snail.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to the inside of the Mossy Meadow card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I adhered a strip of the Pressed Petals Specialty DSP to the front of the envelope and a panel 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!!

Stampin’ Up! Many Mates Jar of Flowers for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday.  How was everyone’s week?  We’re upon a holiday weekend, which normally I would have a lot going on.  I do have to work Sunday and I told my boss I would come in on Saturday for a couple hours to relieve the cashiers so they could take breaks.  These past few weekends no one was able to take a break it was so busy.  Plus, if I go in on Saturday and do some of my work in the office, I won’t have to go in on Tuesday (which is my daughter’s birthday).  Luckily we are closed on Monday, the store has been closed for  60 years on Memorial Day and they are not about to start opening now.

Onto my card for today.  I mixed up some retiring items along with some new items for today’s card.  I’m really determined to use up some more of my DSP that’s retiring.  Here’s my card for today.

My colors were inspired by Sunday Stamps Challenge #231.  I thought the 1st color of the pallet was Navy, but the more I look at it I believe it’s Black. Here are their colors.

My design is from Try Stampin’ On Tuesday Challenge #457.  Here is their sketch.

I started by cutting part of my card front off so that I had a half panel.  I took an 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″ card base and scored it at 4 1/4″.  From the top center I cut down to the 3″ mark.  I then turned my card base and cut from the center at that 3″ mark to the outside of the panel leaving just the bottom portion.  I adhered a panel of Old Olive Regals 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to the bottom portion of the card front.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the flower and jar images from the Stampin’ Up! Jar of Flowers Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.   I colored the flowers in using my Flirty Flamingo, Old Olive, Poppy Parade and Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the stem image from the Jar of Flowers stamp set in Old Olive Ink in the jar and punched it out using the Jar Punch.  I colored the stems in using my Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers, fussy cut the flowers using my Paper Snips and adhered them to the top of the jar using Glue Dots.  I cut the largest circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies  from a panel of Night of Navy cardstock.  I cut the largest scalloped circle from the Layering Circles Dies out of a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I took a 1″ strip of Whisper White cardstock and embossed it using my Lace 3D Embossing Folder.  On a thin strip of Poppy Parade cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Many Mates Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.

I adhered the embossed Whisper White strip to the top of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the Night of Navy stitched circle to the Whisper White scalloped circle using Snail and adhered it to the card front, hanging off the right side, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I cut the circle straight with the side of the card front.  I adhered the jar of flowers to the circle using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the Poppy Parade sentiment strip across the card front over lapping the embossed strip and the jar using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Noble Peacock Rhinestones to the card front.

On the inside I adhered a Rich Razzleberry Regals 6 X 6 DSP panel to the card base using Snail.  I stamped the sentiment from the Many Mates stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of the Whisper White panel.  I stamped the flower image from the Jar of Flowers stamp set in Night of Navy Ink over the sentiment, stamping off 4 times to get a very light image.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Night of Navy mat using Snail and then to the inside of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the flower image from the Jar of Flowers stamp set on the envelope front.  I colored the image in using my Flirty Flamingo, Old Olive, Poppy Parade and Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of the Regals 6 X 6 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.  I hope you all have a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend.  Stay Safe!!  Happy Stamping.

Stampin’ Up! Pastel Ornate Style for Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends.  How is everyone doing today?  Welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we had a Sketch Challenge. Be sure to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects .
Here is the sketch we had to work from.

Here’s my card using this sketch.

My colors for my card today were inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge #339.  Here are their colors.

I started by stamping the large flower image from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Style Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a Whisper White panel.  I colored the image in using my Light Crumb Cake, Mint Macaron, Rococo Rose and Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the image out using the largest die from the Ornate Layers Dies.

I adhered the panel to a Mint Macaron card front using Snail.  I adhered a thin strip of Mint Macaron across the top of the panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I wrapped a piece of Rococo Rose 1/2″ Scalloped Linen Ribbon around the top of the panel securing it in the back using Glue Dots.

I adhered the card front to a Mint Macaron card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few retiring  Seaside Spray 2019-2021 In-Color Faceted Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped  the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Moments Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  Using one of the Ornate Layers Dies I cut out on either side of the sentiment.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Rococo Rose mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Mint Macaron card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the small flower cluster from the Ornate Style stamp set on the envelope front in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the images in using my Mint Macaron, Rococo Rose and  Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the small flower image from the Ornate Style stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope flap and colored them in with my Mint Macaron and Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers.

Thank you for visiting my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Now that you’ve seen my card, take a minute to hop through all our projects today.

Stampin’ Up! Forever Inspiring Iris

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends.  How is everyone doing today?  We’re halfway through the week already and a little over halfway through the month.   These past few months have been a blur.  I got a wonderful phone call yesterday.  My hair dresser called me to tell me they should be opening up June 1st.  I was so excited.  Just like many of you, I am in desperate need of a hair cut.  I’m not sure how this whole thing is going to work.  I’m assuming we have to wear masks and stay covered while there.   I’m sure I’ll find out.

For today’s card I pulled out a stamp set from the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog and paired it with some of the new DSP and Embossing Folder from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.  Here is my card for today.

My colors were inspired by Global Design Project #241.  Here are their colors.

My design is from Crazy 4 Challenges #535.  Here is their sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of the new Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper to a Pretty Peacock card base using Snail.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the outline iris image and the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Inspiring Iris Photopolymer Stamp Set in Pretty Peacock Ink.  I stamped the leaf fill image from the Inspiring Iris stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink and I stamped the flower fill image from the Inspiring Iris stamp set in Blushing Bride Ink.  I adhered the artwork to a Pretty Peacock mat using Snail.   I adhered some of the retiring Rose Metallic Thread to the back of the matted artwork using Snail.

I cut 3 of the 2nd smallest scalloped squares from the Layering Squares Dies out of a panel of Blushing Bride cardstock.  I cut 3 of the smallest squares from the Stitched Shapes Dies out in Soft Sea Foam cardstock.  I embossed all 3 squares using the new Greenery Embossing Folder and adhered them to the scalloped squares using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the 3 matted squares to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the matted artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I made a small bow using the Old Olive/Pretty Peacock 3/8″ Reversible Ribbon and adhered it to the bottom of the flowers using a Glue dot.  I added a few of the retiring Pretty Peacock Noble Peacock Rhinestones to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Inspiring Iris stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped just the leaf and flower fill images from the Inspiring Iris stamp set in Soft Seafoam and Blushing Bride Ink on the bottom of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Soft Sea Foam mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Pretty Peacock card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the leaf and flower fill images from the Inspiring Iris stamp set in Soft Sea Foam and Blushing Bride Ink on the front of the envelope.  I adhered a panel of the Forever Greenery 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!!

Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Birthday

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends.  How has everyone’s week started off?

For today’s card I went out of my comfort zone.  I usually make cards with lots of colors or at least 3, today I made a monochromatic card.  This was really hard for me, but I wanted to try it.  I used some items from the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog and mixed it with some new items from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.  Here’s my card for today.

My colors are from Seize The Birthday Challenge #190.

I also joined in with Joy of Sets Tic Tac Toe Challenge #017.  I went across the top.

I started by cutting the butterflies out using the Butterfly Beauty Dies in Soft Sea Foam cardstock.  I adhered the butterflies to a Soft Sea Foam card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Using some of the gorgeous new ribbon from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog I used the Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack and the Just Jade 2020-2022 In-Color 1/4″ Ribbon.  I started by wrapping a piece of the Whisper White 1/2″ Faux Linen Ribbon around the right corner on an angle and adhered it on the back of the card front using Snail.  I wrapped a piece of the Just Jade 3/8″ Gingham Ribbon around the bottom of the card front, overlapping the Faux Linen Ribbon, adhering it on the back with Snail.  I then wrapped a piece of the Just Jade 2020-2022 In-Color 1/4″ Ribbon over the top of the Faux Linen Ribbon and the Just Jade Gingham Ribbon adhering it on the back of the card front with Snail.

I cut the sentiment out of a small panel of Just Jade cardstock using the Well Written Dies and adhered it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I added a few Just Jade 2020-2022 In-Color Enamel Dots to the card front.  I adhered the card front to a Just Jade card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Well Said Cling Stamp Set in Shaded Spruce Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the Bokeh dots image from the Stampin’ Up! Beauty Abound Cling Stamp Set in Soft Sea Foam Ink around the sentiment.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Soft Sea Foam mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Just Jade card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the butterfly image from the Beauty Abounds stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped the bokeh dots image from the Beauty Abounds stamp set on the envelope flap in Soft Sea Foam Ink.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Hello Sunflower Sneak Peek

Good Monday morning my stamping friends.  How was everyone’s weekend?

I have another sneak peek for you today.  I don’t know which is my favorite so far.  I just love all the new sets I’ve gotten.  Here’s my card for today.

I started by embossing a Cinnamon Cider card front using the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered a panel of the new 2020-2022 In-Color Designer Series Paper in Bumble Bee on top of the panel.  I wrapped a piece of the new Cinnamon Cider 1/4″ In-Color Ribbon around the center of the panel.  I adhered the card front to a Cinnamon Cider card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the small sunflower and small leaf images from the Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers Cling Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink.  I colored the image in using my Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, Granny Apple Green and Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the images out using my Sunflower Dies.  I cut the 2nd largest circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies from a Whisper White panel.  I adhered the sunflower to the panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added the leaves under the sunflower using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a very thin strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips Photopolymer Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink.  I sponged the edges lightly using my Sponge Dauber and the Early Espresso Ink.  I adhered the sentiment to the artwork using a Glue Dot and Mini Stampin’ Dimensional.  I added a few Bumble Bee 2020-2022 In-Color Enamel Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Early Espresso Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the large sunflower image from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Mango Melody Ink over the sentiment, stamping off twice.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Bumble Bee mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Cinnamon Cider card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the small sunflower image from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the front of the envelope.  I colored the image in using my Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, Granny Apple Green and Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of the 2020-2022 In-Color 6 X 6 DSP in Bumble Bee to the envelope flap.

Thank you for visiting my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try.  Happy Stamping!!
