Stampin’ Up! Ringed With Nature Layered Anniversary

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends and welcome to the weekend. Does anyone have any fun plans? I have off today, and we have a couple visitors coming over to meet Coraline. My plans other than that is to hopefully get to my card table for a bit.

My card today I made while I was virtually attending my Open Stamp Night with my team members. Every month we have an open stamp night where we can get together virtually and stamp or just chat with each other. It’s always a lot of fun getting together from all over the United States. We have members that live on the east coast, west coast and center US. Since everyone lives all over, this is the best way we could get together every month. I’d love for you to join in with us, it’s a lot of fun. Interested? Ask me how. Here’s today’s card.

Stampin’ Up! Ringed With Nature 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.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Ringed With Nature Bundle along with the Sale-a-bration Rings of Love Designer Series Paper for my card today.

This is this week’s sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of Rings of Love DSP to an Evening Evergreen card bases. I embossed a panel of Vellum paper using the Leaf Fall 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to the card front. On a strip of Parakeet Party cardstock, I stamped the leaf image from the Stampin’ Up! Ringed With Nature Photopolymer Stamp Set in Parakeet Party Ink. I adhered the strip to the card front on the Vellum panel.

Using the tree Rings Dies and Tree Rings Hybrid Embossing Folder, I cut a panel of Crumb Cake cardstock. I took the largest tree ring die and brushed Soft Suede Ink around the edge using my Spong Dauber. I adhered the die to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. On a strip of Evening Evergreen cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Ringed With Nature stamp set in Versamark Ink. I sprinkled it with my White Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I cut the sentiment out using the smallest die from the Stitched Rectangle Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut 2 of the thinner leaf dies from the Tree Rings Dies from a panel of Parakeet Party cardstock, I cut one of the larger leaf dies from a panel of Evening Evergreen cardstock. I adhered the leaf dies just under the sentiment using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I colored the berries on one of the sprig Textural Elements using my Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the sprig on top of the leaves just under the sentiment using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the tree ring image from the Ringed With Nature stamp set in Soft Suede Ink, stamping off twice on scrap paper, on a Basic White panel. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Happiness Abounds Photopolymer Stamp Set in Evening Evergreen Ink over the tree rings. I stamped the heart image from the Ringed With Nature stamp set in Poppy Parade Ink on top of the sentiment. I stamped the leaf image from the Ringed With Nature stamp set in Parakeet Party Ink on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Soft Suede mat and then to the inside of the Evening Evergreen card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the tree ring image from the Ringed With Nature stamp set in soft Suede Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper, on the envelope front. I stamped the heart image from the Ringed With Nature stamp set in Poppy Parade Ink on top of the tree ring image. I stamped the leaf image in Parakeet Party next to the tree ring. I adhered a panel of Rings of Love DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Cottage Rose Wedding

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends, welcome to the weekend. Does anyone have any fun plans this weekend? I’m working all day today, but tomorrow is our in person quarterly meeting. Alway look forward to our meetings.

Today’s card is another one we made at my Stamp Camp card class this past Tuesday. One of the ladies requested a wedding card, so here’s what I came up with.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Cottage Rose Bundle along with the Abigail Rose Designer Series Paper and the Stampin’ Up! Celebrating You Cling Stamp Set for my card today.

I started by adhering a panel of Abigail Rose DSP to a Smoky Slate card base. I cut a panel of Basic White cardstock using the Basic Borders Dies.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Cottage Rose Cling Stamp Set in Smoky Slate Ink on the top of the panel. I embossed the panel using the Elegant Eucalyptus 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the panel to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the large rose image from the Cottage Rose stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink. I cut the image out using my Cottage Flowers Dies. I adhered the rose to the embossed panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. Using my Clear Wink of Stella, I brushed the entire rose to give it a shimmer. I adhered a Sprig Trinket just under the rose using Glue Dots.

On the inside, I stamped the rose image from the Cottage Rose stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper, on a Basic White panel. I stamped the sentiment from the Celebrating You stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink over the rose image. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Smoky Slate mat and then to the inside of the Smoky Slate card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the large rose image from the Cottage Rose stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of Abigail Rose 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! Elegantly Said Anniversary

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. Hope you are having a productive week and looking forward to the weekend.

Today’s card is another one we made at my class last week. I haven’t used this paper much and I thought it would make a pretty card for the ladies to make. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Elegantly Said Cling Stamp Set along with the Simply Elegant Specialty Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by adhering a panel of the Simply Elegant DSP to a Thick Very Vanilla card base.

I adhered the 4 squares of Simply Elegant DSP to the 4 Very Vanilla mats and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Elegantly Said stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I stamped the floral image from the Elegantly Said stamp Set in Basic Gray Ink, stamping off 3 times on scrap paper, over the sentiment. I cut the sentiment out using my Stitched So Sweetly Dies and adhered it to the center of the 4 squares using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the sentiment.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Elegantly Said stamp set in Basic Gray Ink on a Very Vanilla panel. I stamped the floral image from the Elegantly Said stamp set in Basic Gray Ink, stamping off on scrap paper twice, on either side of the sentiment. I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Basic Gray mat and then to the inside of the Thick Very Vanilla card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Very Vanilla Medium Envelope. I stamped the floral image from the Elegantly Said stamp set in Basic Gray Ink, stamping off once, on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the Simply Elegant DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Love & Happiness 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 Karen Finkle’s blog, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we have a Theme Challenge. I decided to make an Anniversary card using our theme.  Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s awesome projects. Here is my card using this week’s Theme.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Love & Happiness Cling Stamp Set along with the Stampin’ Up! Sale-a-bration Friendly Hello Bundle for my card today.

Our theme is LOVE this week.

I started by adhering a panel of Friendly Hello DSP to a Basic Gray card base. I adhered 2 more panels of the Friendly Hello DSP to Basic Gray mats using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the longer panel to the card front first, then the shorter panel on top using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a Heart & Home Doily I masked off the circle by cutting a circle in the center of a Post-It Note and placing it over the doily. I stamped the bird image from the from the Friendly Hello stamp set in Versamark Ink on the doily. I removed the mask and immediately sprinkled it with my White Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I adhered the doily to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Love & Happiness stamp set in Basic Gray Ink. I stamped the tiny berry image from the Friendly Hello stamp set in Petal Pink Ink around the sentiment. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Love & Happiness stamp set in Basic Gray Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the flower image from the Friendly Hello stamp set in Petal Pink Ink on the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Petal Pink mat and then to the inside of the Basic Gray card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic Whtie Medium Envelope. I stamped the flower image from the Friendly Hello stamp set in Petal Pink Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the Friendly Hello DSP to the envelope flap.

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! Daffodil Daydream Anniversary

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends and welcome to the weekend. Can you believe it’s the middle of the month already? January usually drags for me, but it seems to be flying by. Does anyone have plans? Other than working my only plan is to try to stay warm, it’s supposed to be a cold one here.

Today’s card we made at our team lounge this past Tuesday. My upline Jaimie has a small meeting and then we do some mystery stamping. I really do enjoy it, even if she makes me go out of my comfort zone. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Daffodil Daydream Bundle along with the Daffodil Afternoon Designer Series Paper for my card today.

My colors are from Global Design Project Color Challenge #325.

I started by embossing a Pool Party card front using the Gingham Embossing Folder and adhered it to a Pool Party card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the butterfly and 2 daffodil images from the Stampin’ Up! Daffodil Daydream Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I cut the images out using my Daffodil Dies. I colored the images using my Pale Papaya, Polished Pink and Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of the Daffodil Afternoon DSP to a Very Vanilla mat and then to the card front on an angle using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the daffodil and butterfly images to the layered panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I tied a bow with my Pale Papaya 3/8″ Open Weave Ribbon and adhered it next to the daffodils using a Glue Dot. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Love & Happiness Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink and cut it out using my Harvest Dies. I adhered the sentiment over the ribbon and daffodils using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Love & Happiness stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Very Vanilla panel. I stamped the butterfly and smaller daffodil images from the Daffodil Daydream stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the side of the panel. I colored the images in using my Pale Papaya, Polished Pink and Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Pool Party mat and then to the inside of the Pool Party card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Very Vanilla Medium Envelope. I stamped the single daffodil image from the Daffodil Daydream stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and colored it using my Pale Papaya and Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of the Daffodil Afternoon 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! Daisy Garden Anniversary

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends. Welcome to the weekend and Happy End of July. Hope you have something fun planned. Looks like it’s going to be a beauty here, upper 70’s and sunny. It was beautiful sleeping last night, it was in the low 50’s. I shut off the A/C, opened the windows and turned on my attic fan. I got to fall asleep listening to the crickets, lol.

Today’s card is a quick and easy one that I think we will be making at our class on Tuesday night. Actually today and tomorrow’s card are very similar, you have to let me know which one you like better. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Daisy Garden Cling Stamp Set along with the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper for my card. This DSP is one of the 9 that are on sale until Tuesday for 15% off. Now’s the perfect time to stock up and save.

I started by stamping the Daisy Garden image in Versamark Ink on a panel of In Good Taste DSP. I immediately sprinkled it with my White Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. For a little stability, I adhered the card front to a panel of Bumblebee cardstock using Stampin’ Seal.

I wrapped a piece of the Bumblebee 1/4″ Gingham Ribbon around the panel and tied a bow. I adhered the card front to a Bumblebee card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a scrap of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Many Messages Cling Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink and cut it out using my Messages Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the card front over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the Daisy Garden image in Early Espresso Ink, stamping off 3 times on scrap paper, on a Basic White panel. I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern Cling Stamp Set and the Stampin’ Up! Elegantly Said Cling Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink over the daisy image. I adhered the Basic White panel to an Early Espresso mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Bumblebee card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I stamped part of the Daisy Garden stamp on the front of a Basic White Medium Envelope in Early Espresso Ink, stamping off once. I adhered a panel of In Good Taste 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! Elegantly Said Anniversary

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone doing today? We’re halfway through the week and on our way to the weekend and a new month. I can’t believe July is just about over

Today I have a card that could be used as either an Anniversary Card or a Wedding Card. I made mine into an Anniversary Card. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Elegantly Said Cling Stamp Set and the Simply Elegant Specialty Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by adhering a panel of the Simply Elegant Specialty DSP to a Copper Foil mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to a Very Vanilla card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered another panel of the Simply Elegant Spec. DSP to a Very Vanilla mat using Stampin’ Seal and adhered it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Elegantly Said stamp set in Versamark Ink. I immediately sprinkled it with my Copper Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I cut the sentiment out using my Stitched Rectangle Dies and adhered it to a Copper Foil mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the matted sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Brushed Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dots, (available Aug 3rd), to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the flourish image from the Elegantly Said stamp set in Versamark Ink on the top corner of a Very Vanilla panel. I immediately sprinkled it with my Copper Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I stamped the sentiment from the Elegantly Said stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the panel. I adhered a strip of the Simply Elegant Spec DSP to the bottom of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Basic Black mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Very Vanilla card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To finish my card I decorated a Very Vanilla Medium Envelope. I stamped the flower image from the Elegantly Said stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the Simply Elegant Specialty 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! Corner Bouquet Anniversary

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend? Did anyone do anything exciting or fun? This time of year with the cold weather, other than work, I stay in and sometimes relax.

For today I have another Sale-A-Bration card for you. This is our last week to earn FREE product. There’s still time to place your orders and get your free items. For today I used the Stampin’ Up! Corner Bouquet Cling Stamp Set. Here’s today’s card.

My colors are from Color Throwdown #630. I just love these colors together.

I started by embossing a Mint Macaron card front using the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to a Blushing Bride card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the image from the Corner Bouquet stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink. I cut the image out using the Stitched Rectangle Dies and adhered it to a Gold Foil mat using Stampin’ Seal. Using the Confetti Flowers Border Punch I punched out some tiny flowers from a panel of Blushing Bride cardstock. I cut some other flowers out of the Blushing Bride cardstock using the Wreath Builder Dies. I adhered the flowers to the artwork using tiny amounts of Multipurpose Liquid Glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the matted panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I made a tiny bow using the Gold Trim from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack and adhered it to the bottom of the flowers using a Glue Dot. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Many Messages Cling Stamp in Soft Suede Ink and cut it out using my Messages Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the top of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added some Gold Glitter Enamel Dots to the flower centers.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Hearty To Heart Photopolymer Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the image from the Corner Bouquet stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink on the bottom of the panel and added some more of the Blushing Bride flowers I cut out using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Mint Macaron mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Blushing Bride card base using Stampin’ Seal. I added a few more Gold Glitter Enamel Dots to the flowers.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the image from the Corner Bouquet stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of Blushing Bride Subtle 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper on 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! Beautiful World for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends and welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop.  Hope you are all doing well and staying healthy.  If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we have a sketch challenge. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects.
Here is our sketch for this week.

I decided to make a masculine card with this sketch. Here’s my card using this sketch.

I played along with The Card Concept Challenge #141 (Around The World). Here is their theme.

I also played along with Cardz 4 Guyz Challenge #255. Their challenge is CAS (Clean and Simple)

I started by adhering a panel of World of Good Specialty Designer Series Paper to a Basic Black card base using Multipurpose Liquid glue. I added 4 of the Antique Corners from the Antique Corners and Slides Elements using Glue Dots.

I cut a panel of the World of Good Specialty DSP using the 4th largest Stitched Rectangle Dies and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of World of Good Specialty DSP I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Beautiful World Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. I cut the sentiment out using the 2nd largest oval from the Stitched Shapes Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Beautiful World stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel. I stamped the quill image from the Beautiful World stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink above the sentiment. I adhered a strip of the World of Good Specialty DSP to the bottom of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Brass Foil mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Basic Black card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I adhered a strip of the World of Good Specialty DSP to the envelope front.

I adhered a panel of the World of Good Specialty DSP to the envelope flap.

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.
