Stampin’ Up Seasoned With Kindness for CAS(E) This Sketch #303 and Fab Friday # 154

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  How is your week going?

For today’s card I used a Host Exclusive Stamp Set called Seasoned With Kindness.  I played along with 2 different challenges today.  Fab Friday color challenge # 154 and CAS(E) This Sketch challenge #303.  Please be sure to stop by the Fab Friday blog to see all the beautiful projects made and to play along.  Also, be sure to stop by the CAS(E) This Sketch challenge to see what everyone has made and to play along with them too.

Here is the Fab Friday Color Challenge # 154.  I have to admit, this was a real challenge for me.  These colors were a little difficult for me.

Here is the CAS(E) This Sketch Challenge # 303.

Here is what I came up with for the 2 challenges.  Take a look.

I started with a Highland Heather card front and adhered a panel of Tranquil Textures Designer Series Paper to it using Snail.  I adhered the card front to a Tranquil Tide card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped 2 of the plant images from the Stampin’ Up Seasoned With Kindness Host Exclusive stamp set.  I first stamped the outlines in Tranquil Tide Ink.  I then stamped the inside of the leaves in Lemon Lime Twist Ink and the inside of the flower in Highland Heather Ink.  I stamped the inside of the flower-pot in Pear Pizzazz Ink.  I did all the stamping using my Stamparatus.  It made lining everything up very easy. Using my Big Shot I cut the artwork out using the circle from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.

I adhered the circle to a small piece of Mint Macaron cardstock using Snail.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Easter Beauty stamp set in Tranquil Tide Ink around the bottom of the circle.  I stamped another plant image from the Seasoned With Kindness stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink along the bottom of the Mint Macaron panel.  I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I then took a piece of Whisper White Bakers Twine and colored it using my Pear Pizzazz Ink.  I tied a small bow and attached it to the flower pot using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the plant images from the Seasoned With Kindness stamp set along the bottom of a Whisper White panel the same way I stamped them on the card front.  I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set in Tranquil Tide Ink in the center of the panel and adhered it to a Highland Heather mat using Snail.  I then adhered it to the Tranquil Tide card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the plant images from the Seasoned With Kindness stamp set on the bottom front of the envelope.  I adhered a piece of Tranquil Textures 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.  To get this host exclusive stamp set you either must have a qualifying party  to earn this set or if you purchase $150 in product you can earn it.  Happy stamping!

Stampin’ Up Heartland for Freshly Made Sketches #369 and Sunday Stamps #195

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers. Hope you all had a great weekend and are ready for your 1st full week of 2019. . I’m hoping to be done with all the rain for a while. I don’t know about you, but things are real soggy around me.

For today’s card I played along with 2 different challenges again.  Have you ever had crafters block?  I have and when I do I look to challenges to help me.  I played along with the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge # 369 and the Sunday Stamps  Winter Solitude Challenge #195.  Be sure to stop by Freshly Made Sketches to see what everyone has made and to play along. Then be sure to stop by Sunday Stamps and see all the projects made and play along with them too.

Here is the sketch challenge from Freshly Made Sketches.

Here is the color challenge from  Sunday Stamps Winter Solitude.  I just love the softness of these colors.

Here is what I came up with for the combined challenge.  Sometimes we get so hung up with the new catalogs that come out that we forget about the Annual Catalog that still has some beautiful stamp sets.  I thought this would make a perfect Father’s Day card.  Take a look.

I started with a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock.  I stamped the barn image from the Stampin’ Up Heartland stamp set in Early Espresso Ink.  Using my Aqua Painter I water colored the sky in Balmy Blue Ink. I lightly colored the trees and bushes in with Calypso Coral and So Saffron Inks and the windmill in with Smoky Slate Ink, all using my Aqua Painter.  I adhered the artwork panel to an Early Espresso mat using Snail.

On a small panel of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the little boy and the ducks from the Heartland stamp set in Early Espresso Ink.  Again using my Aqua Painter, I colored the ducks in So Saffron and Calypso Coral Inks.  I colored the little boy in with my Balmy Blue and Ivory Stampin’ Blends Markers and I colored the stick in with my Early Espresso Stampin’ Write Marker.  Using my Big Shot I cut the image out using my Layering Circles Framelits Dies. I edged the circle using my Early Espresso Stampin’ Write Marker.

I adhered 2 small strips of cardstock to the card front.  One is a piece of Calypso Coral cardstock which I embossed with the Basket Weave Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (to give it a little texture) and the other is a piece of So Saffron cardstock.  I then adhered the artwork circle on top of the colored strips using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I then adhered the card front to a Smoky Slate card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the barn image from the Heartland stamp set in Early Espresso Ink, stamping off twice, in the center of a Very Vanilla panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Colorful Seasons stamp set in Early Espresso Ink.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to an Early Espresso mat using Snail.  I then adhered it to the Smoky Slate card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I stamped the little boy with the ducks from the Heartland stamp set on the front of the envelope in Early Espresso Ink.  I stamped the barn image from the same stamp set 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.

I started with a piece of Grapefruit Grove Gingham Gala 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper.  Using my Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blends Marker I drew lines between the checks to make it look like plaid.  I adhered a small piece of the DSP to the left side of a Whisper White card front using Snail.  I wrapped a piece of the Grapefruit Grove 1/4″ Organdy Ribbon around the card front on the seem.  I adhered the card front to a Call Me Clover mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  In the upper right corner of the Whisper White panel, I stamped the flies from the So Hoppy Together stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored them in using my Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Marker.

On a small piece of Whisper White cardstock, I stamped the Frog riding the unicycle from Stampin’ Up So Hoppy Together stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set in Call Me Clover Ink below the wheel.  I colored the frog and unicycle in using my Basic Black, Call Me Clover, Pineapple Punch, Smoky Slate and Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blends Markers and my Grapefruit Grove Stampin’ Write Marker.  I adhered the artwork to a Call Me Clover mat using Snail and then to a Soft Sea Foam mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered the matted artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card front to a Soft Sea Foam card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added 1 Grapefruit Grove Share What You Love Artisan Pearl next to the sentiment.

On the inside Whisper White panel I stamped the frog from So Hoppy Together stamp set on the bottom portion of the panel and the flies from the same set by the frog.  I colored it in the same as I did for the front of the card.  I adhered a small strip of the Gingham Gala 6 X 6 DSP to the bottom of the panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the Postcard Pals stamp set in Call Me Clover in the center of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Call Me Clover mat using Snail, then adhered it to the Soft Sea Foam card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card, I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the frog from the So Happy Together stamp set on both sides of the envelope front and colored them in the same as I did on the card.  I adhered a piece of the Gingham Gala 6 X 6 DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  This was really a fun card to make and I hope you will give it a try.  Happy Stamping.

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  Did you all have a nice Christmas?  Was Santa good to you?  Did anyone get some fun new stamping products?  Hope you all had an enjoyable day with your loved ones.

For today’s card I have a little sneak peek for you.  I played along with the Fab Friday sketch challenge #153.  Please be sure to stop by Fab Friday to play along and see what everyone has made.  Here is their sketch.

Here is what I came up with for the sketch.  Take a look.

I started with a Crumb Cake card base and using Snail I adhered a panel of the beautiful All My Love Designer Series Paper, which will be available January 3, 2019.  I adhered a smaller strip of the same DSP about 2/3 of the way down the card front.

On a small piece of Whisper White cardstock, I stamped the teacup image from the Stampin’ Up Time For Tea Photopolymer Stamp Set in Lovely Lipstick Ink.  Using my Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Write Marker I colored part of the sentiment in and stamped it above and below the teacup.  I colored the teacup in using my Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blends Markers.  Using my Big Shot and my Stitched Shaped Framelits Dies, I cut out the teacup with my second largest stitched circle.  I adhered the artwork to a Pearlized Doilie using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Using my Big Shot, I cut a circle out from Balmy Blue cardstock using my Layering Circles Framelits Dies.  I adhered the Balmy Blue circle just under the Doilie.  I adhered the layered artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside on a Whisper White panel I stamped the bottom section of the sentiment from the Time For Tea stamp set in Lovely Lipstick Ink.  I stamped the teacup in Flirty Flamingo Ink, stamping off twice, on top of the sentiment.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Balmy Blue mat using Snail then adhered it to the Crumb Cake card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card, I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the teacup from the Time For Tea stamp set in Flirty Flamingo Ink on the front of the envelope.  I adhered a piece of the All My Love DSP on the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up Beauty Abounds Sneak Peak

Good Tuesday morning everyone.  Hope your week is starting off great.

I’ve got a sneak peak for you today from the up coming 2019 Occasions Catalog.  I’ve used the Stampin’ Up Beauty Abound Bundle for my card. Take a look.

I started with a Granny Apple Green card front and ran it through my Big Shot using the Layering Leaves Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  Again using my Big Shot, I cut the Butterflies from the upcoming Butterfly Beauty Thinlits Dies, available January 3, 2019, from Basic Black cardstock.  I adhered the butterflies to the embossed panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the Hello from the Beauty Abounds stamp set in Highland Heather Ink.  I bannered the sentiment and adhered it to the right side of the butterflies using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered the card front to a Basic Black mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I then adhered it to a Highland Heather card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I added some Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the butterfly.

On the inside I stamped the splatter image from the Beauty Abounds stamp set multiple times in the center of a Whisper White panel in Highland Heather Ink, stamping off once each time.  I then stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink over the splatter image.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Basic Black mat using Snail.  I adhered it to the Highland Heather card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the flower image from the Beauty Abounds stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink on the front left of the envelope.  I stamped the butterfly image from the same set in Highland Heather Ink by the flowers and on the back envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked the sneak peak.  This bundle will be available January 3, 2019.  Purchasing this bundle will also allow you to pick a free product from the Sale-A-Bration catalog which starts on January 3, 2019 and runs until March 31, 2019.  Who doesn’t like free products???  I’ll be posting more sneak peaks of the products coming in the new Occasions Catalog in the next few weeks.  Happy Stamping!

Stampin’ Up Beauty Abounds Sneak Peek for Freshly Made Sketches and Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenges

Good Monday morning everyone.  Hope you all had a wonderful weekend and are ready to start a short work week.  If you were able to stop by my booth at the Holiday Craft Show, thank you very much I really appreciate it.  I can’t believe that Thanksgiving is just 3 days away.  I’ve got a lot of baking and cooking to get done before Thursday.  How about you?

For today’s card I played along with 2 different challenges.  The first one is Freshly Made Sketches #363.  Be sure to stop by the Freshly Made Sketches blog to see all the amazing projects made.  Here is their sketch challenge.

The other challenge I played along with is Hand Stamped Sentiments #302.  Be sure to stop by Hand Stamped Sentiments blog to see all the beautiful projects made.  Here is their color challenge.

Here is what I came up with for the 2 challenges.  I’m giving you a sneak peek of a new Stampin’ Up stamp set called Beauty Abounds that will be available January 3, 2019.  Take a look.

I started with a Thick Very Vanilla card front and stamped it with the Hardwood stamp in Crushed Curry Ink.  I adhered a strip of Merry Merlot on the right side then ran it through my Big Shot using the Pinewood Planks Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.

I adhered the stamped panel to a Thick Very Vanilla card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small panel of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the image from the Stampin’ Up Beauty Abounds stamp set, available January 3, 2019, in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I stamped the sentiment on the side in Merry Merlot Ink.  I colored the image in using my Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the artwork to a Pumpkin Pie mat using Snail then adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I stamped the butterfly from the stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a scrap piece of Crushed Curry cardstock and fussy cut it using my Paper Snips.  I adhered it to the artwork using a Glue Dot.  I added 3 Clear Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside, on a Very Vanilla panel, I stamped the Bokeh dots from the Beauty Abounds stamp set in Pumpkin Pie Ink.  I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink over the Bokeh dots.  I adhered the panel to a Merry Merlot mat using Snail then adhered it to the Thick Very Vanilla card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I stamped the Bokeh Dots in Pumpkin Pie Ink on the bottom front of the envelope and the envelope flap.  I stamped the image from the Beauty Abounds stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the bottom left of the envelope.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked the sneak peek of what’s coming in January.  I’ll have more sneak peaks in the next couple weeks.  Happy Stamping!

Stampin’ Up Rooted In Nature

Good Monday morning everyone.  Hope your week is starting off good so far.

For today’s card I used the Rooted In Nature Bundle again.  This is such a great set, I’m really loving it.  The Nature’s Poem Designer Paper is just beautiful too.

I started with a piece of Cajun Craze cardstock for the card base.  I stamped the small leaf image from Rooted in Nature in Cajun Craze Ink on the card front.  I then adhered a piece of Nature’s Poem Designer Series Paper to the right side of the card front using Snail.

On a piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the image of one of the trees.  To get the 2 colors I colored the stamp using my Soft Suede and Mint Macaron Stampin’ Write Markers. I then sponged a little Mint Macaron on the bottom of the white paper to make it look like grass.  Using Snail I adhered it to a Grapefruit Grove mat.  I attached it to the center of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a scrap of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the smaller leaf image 3 times, once each in Cajun Craze, Grapefruit Grove and Mint Macaron Inks.  I then cut the leaf images out using the Nature’s Roots Framelit Dies with my Big Shot.  I attached them to the top left of my center piece using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered a bow made from Linen Thread to the bottom of my 3 leaves using a Glue Dot.

On the inside Whisper White panel, I stamped the small leaf image multiple times using Cajun Craze, Grapefruit Grove and Mint Macaron Inks.  Some of the images are full strength and some are stamped off.  No sentiment was added so that the card could be used for any occasion.  I adhered the panel using Snail to a Grapefruit Grove mat.  Using Liquid Glue I adhered it to the card base.

To complete my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope by stamping the small leaf image in Cajun Craze, Grapefruit Grove and Mint Macaron Inks, stamping off once, around the edges of the envelope.
