Stampin’ Up Just Because Sneak Peek

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  Hope you all had a wonderful weekend and have made some fun plans for tonight.  My plans usually involve staying home and trying to stay up till midnight.  I may just have to work at my craft table to stay awake.  What every your plans are, stay safe ringing the New Year in.  I can’t believe the year is over and we start a new one tomorrow.

For today’s card I used a Host exclusive set called Just Because.  You can earn this set by having a qualifying party or spending $150.00 yourself on products.  Here’s my card for today.

I started with a panel of Floral Romance Specialty Designer Series Paper, (available January 3, 2019, just 3 days away), as my card front.  I adhered another piece of the same paper to the bottom portion of the card front using Glue Dots.  The bottom is a beautiful Vellum piece so you have to be careful when adhering it or you may be able to see the adhesive used.  I then wrapped a piece of Linen Thread around the card front twice just at the vellum piece.

On a small piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped one of the images from the Just Because Host Exclusive stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored it in using my Mossy Meadow, (available January 3, 2019), and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the artwork to a Petal Pink Mat using Snail then to a Fresh Fig mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the matted artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the card front to a Fresh Fig card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the Happy Anniversary sentiment from Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set in Fresh Fig Ink.  Using my Big Shot and Bunch Of Banners Framelits I cut the sentiment out and adhered it under the artwork using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Clear Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the image from Just Because Host Exclusive stamp set on a Whisper White panel.  I colored the stamp in using my Mossy Meadow and Petal Pink Stampin’ Write Markers stamping it off once.  I stamped the sentiment from Forever Lovely stamp set (available January 3, 2019) over the stamped image in Mossy Meadow Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Sahara Sand mat using Snail then adhered it to the Fresh Fig card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the vase image from Just Because stamp set on the front of the envelope colored the same as I did for the inner liner.  I adhered a piece of Floral Romance 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. I hope you all have a Happy Healthy and Safe New Year.  I will see you next year!Happy Stamping.

Stampin’ Up Love You To Pieces Anniversary Card for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop

Good Tuesday morning everyone and welcome to another edition of Amy’s Inkin’ Krew team blog hop!  Each month we make projects centered around a theme – and this month we’re doing “Giving Thanks”.  We can interpret this any way we want – so be sure to check and see everyone’s projects – we’ve got a group of talented ladies hopping with us this month!

For my card today I used the Stampin’ Up Love You To Pieces Bundle.  It’s actually a puzzle that I had to put together after cutting it out.  Take a look.

I started with a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock.  I adhered a piece of Tranquil Textures Designer Series Paper to the card base using Snail.

I stamped a piece of Thick Very Vanilla cardstock, using the Stampin’ Up Marbled background stamp, in Fresh Fig Ink stamping it off once.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Love You To Pieces stamp set in the center in Fresh Fig Ink.  Then using the Puzzle Pieces Thinlits Dies, I centered the sentiment with the thinlits die and cut it out using my Big Shot.

Using Multipurpose Liquid Glue I put the puzzle back together on a piece of Pear Pizzazz cardstock.  I attached Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back of the Pear Pizzazz panel and weaved some Rose Metallic Thread around till I liked how it looked.  I then adhered it to the card base.  I added a few Clear Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the artwork.

On a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the Puzzle Pieces with the sentiments from the Love You To Pieces stamp set in Fresh Fig Ink.  I stamped the outlined puzzle pieces in the 4 corners with Fresh Fig Ink.  Using Snail I adhered the liner to a Pear Pizzazz cardstock mat.  I adhered it to the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I stamped a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope on the bottom front with the outlined puzzle pieces.  I adhered a piece of Tranquil Textures DSP to the envelope flap.  This is such a wonderful stamp set, especially if you like doing puzzles.

Now that you’ve seen my card, I hope you’ll take a little time to jump thru all the other projects we have to share. Click any name below, or you can use the Previous Blog button to jump to Karen’s page or the Next Blog button to jump to Jaimie’s’s page.
