Stampin’ Up! Tasteful Touches CAS

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. We’re halfway through the week and heading towards the weekend.

It’s time for another inspiration challenge for The Card Concept. For the next 2 weeks we have a Loads of Lavender challenge. Here is my card that was inspired from the challenge photo.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Tasteful Touches Cling Stamp Set . I was inspired by the colors in the photo along with the gingham bow (even though mine isn’t black) for my clean and layered card today.

I hope you will take a moment to visit The Card Concept and join us this week to play along with our challenge #153. How are you inspired by this photo?

I started by adhering a panel of In Good Taste Designer Series Paper to a Gray Granite card base using Stampin’ Seal.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the pitcher image from the Stampin’ Up! Country Home Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. If this is a set that you like, it will be retiring as of May 3rd. I colored the image in using my Gray Granite Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the leafy image from the Tasteful Touches stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink above the pitcher and colored the leaves in using my Highland Heather Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I cut the image out using my Scalloped Contours Dies. These are my absolute new favorite dies in case you can’t tell. I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I tied a small bow using the gingham ribbon from the Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack and adhered it to the pitcher using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Tasteful Touches stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the leafy image from the Tasteful Touches stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink on the corners of the panel and colored the leaves in using my Highland Heather Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Soft Succulent mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Gray Granite card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the leafy image from the Tasteful Touches stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink on the envelope front and colored the leaves in using my Highland Heather Stampin’ Blends Markers. 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! Dragonfly Garden Wishes

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend? I hope you had enjoyable one and were able to find some time for yourself.

Today’s card is one that we’re making at my card class tonight. This is the 1st class in over a year that I’m having. I’m really hoping this will be the 1st of many monthly classes again. I used the Stampin’ Up! Dragonfly Garden Cling Stamp Set and the Stampin’ Up! Garden Wishes Cling Stamp Set for my card. My card is similar to one a did a while back, one of the ladies coming asked about making it. Here’s my card for today.

My colors are from CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge #414.

I started by adhering a Dandy Garden Designer Series Paper card front to a Bumblebee card base using Stampin’ Seal.

I embossed a panel of Mossy Meadow cardstock using the Dandelion 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the dragonfly image from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I stamped the wing fill image in Merry Merlot Ink and I punched the dragonfly out using the Dragonflies Punch. I stamped the sentiment from the Garden Wishes stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink on the same panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the small dragonfly image from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set in Bumblebee Ink over the sentiment and punched it out using the Double Oval Punch. I punched the scalloped oval from the panel of Basic White cardstock using the Double Oval Punch. I adhered the sentiment oval to the scalloped oval using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered a length of 1/4″ Bumblebee Ribbon to the card front adhering it with a small amount of Stampin’ Seal in a ‘Z’ form and adhered the sentiment over the top using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a Ladybug Trinket to the sentiment using a Glue Dot. I brushed the wings of the dragonfly with some Clear Wink of Stella and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Garden Wishes stamp set in the center of a Basic White panel using Mossy Meadow Ink. I stamped the dragonfly image from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set in Bumblebee Ink on the top and bottom corners of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Mossy Meadow mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Bumblebee card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the dragonfly from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set on the envelope front and adhered a panel of the Dandy Garden 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! Quiet Meadow Sneak Peek for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Are you ready for the weekend? I will not be working this weekend YAY!!! I have a virtual Stampin’ Up! On Tour on Saturday, which is like a mini convention. Sunday we have our team meeting so since it’s in the middle of the afternoon I couldn’t work, so I have the whole weekend off.

Before I get started I just wanted to remind you that my 2021-2022 Annual Catalogs will be in on Monday. If you are a customer of mine, I will be sending one out to you ASAP. If you’d like a copy of the catalog, send me a note at creativestampingdesigns@gmail.com and I will get one in the mail to you. Also, I am offering a Designer Series Paper share from the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog. If you are interested or want to know what a product share is, visit my blog from yesterday morning HERE.

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’s my card for today.

I used the new Stampin’ Up! Quiet Meadow Bundle for my card along with the Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper.

I started by adhering 4 panels of Pansy Petals DSP to 4 Basic White mats using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the matted panels to the 2 front side panels and the 2 back side panels of the Evening Evergreen card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the flower image from the Stampin’ Up! Quiet Meadow Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image in using my Fresh Freesia and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the sentiment from the Quiet Meadow stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink on the top of the panel. I stamped the newspaper print image from the Quiet Meadow stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink, stamped off once, across the stem of the flower image. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Soft Succulent mat using Stampin’ Seal. On a scrap of Pale Papaya cardstock I stamped the newspaper print image in Soft Succulent Ink, stamping off once. I cut 2 butterflies using my Meadow Dies from the stamped newsprint and 2 from a solid piece. I adhered the printed butterflies on top of the solid butterflies, just on the bodies, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered the butterflies to the side panels using Multipurpose Liquid Glue just on the bottom butterfly. I added a Bumblebee Trinket to the artwork using a Glue Dot.

On the inside (or back), I stamped the sentiment from the Quiet Meadow stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the flower image from the Quiet Meadow stamp set in the 2 corners of the panel in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the flowers in using my Fresh Freesia and Pale Papaya Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Soft Succulent mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the back of the Evening Evergreen card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the flower image from the Quiet Meadow stamp set twice on the envelope front in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the flowers in using my Fresh Freesia and Pale Papaya Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of the Pansy Petals 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. The list of measurements are below if you’d like to stamp along while watching the video. You can watch my video on my Facebook page Here.

You can also view the video on my YouTube channel Here. Products I used for my card today will be available on May 4th. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Very Versailles

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends. How has everyone’s week started off? Hope you will be having a productive one.

For today I made a simple stamping card for you. My card uses Stamps, Ink and Paper. I used the Stampin’ Up! Very Versailles Cling Stamp Set for my card. I’ve been wanting to use it for a while, so here’s my card for today.

My colors are from Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge #360.

I started with a Basic White card front and stamped the script image from the Very Versailles stamp set in So Saffron Ink, stamping off once. I stamped the leaf image from the Very Versailles stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on the card front overlapping the script.

I adhered a panel of Hydrangea Hill Designer Series Paper to the bottom of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the card front to a Highland Heather mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to a Basic White card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Very Versailles stamp set in Highland Heather Ink and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the script image from the Very Versailles stamp set in So Saffron Ink, stamping off twice, in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the leaf from the Very Versailles stamp set image on the side of the panel in Pear Pizzazz Ink. I stamped the sentiment from the Very Versailles stamp set in Highland Heather Ink in the center of the panel over the script image. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Highland Heather mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Basic White card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the leaf image from the Very Versailles stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the Hydrangea Hill 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! Garden Wishes Hello

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend? Saturday was an absolutely gorgeous spring day here. Sunday, well, lets just say it was a good day to stay in. Unfortunately I had to go out to work, it was just a very rainy gloomy day.

I have another quick and easy card for you today using the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Garden Wishes Cling Stamp Set. The main part of my card uses the Dandelion 3D Embossing Folder. Here’s my card for today.

My colors are from Fab Friday Challenge #210.

I started by embossing a Smoky Slate card front using the Dandelion 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the embossed panel to a Smoky Slate mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and then to a Smoky Slate card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Garden Wishes stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock in Pear Pizzazz Ink. I cut the sentiment out using the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. I cut a mat from a panel of Pear Pizzazz cardstock using the larger die from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I punched one of the dragonflies out of a panel of the Dandy Garden Designer Series Paper using my Dragonflies Punch and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a few 2020-2022 In-Color Enamel Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Garden Wishes stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the dandelion image from the Garden Wishes stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Pear Pizzazz mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Smoky Slate card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the dandelion image from the Garden Wishes stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the Subtle 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper 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 Brilliance Gala

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends and Happy St. Patrick’s Day to you. Even if you are not Irish, today everyone has just a bit in them. I don’t have any Irish in me (just Italian), but growing up my mom always made corn beef and cabbage on St. Patrick’s Day. Don’t forget to wear your Green today!! We’re halfway through the week and heading towards the weekend, hope you are making some fun plans.

It’s time for another inspiration challenge for The Card Concept. For the next 2 weeks we have a Butterfly Brilliance challenge. Here is my card that was inspired from the challenge photo.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Brilliance Bundle and the Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Gala Photopolymer Stamp Set. The butterfly was my main inspiration for my clean and layered card today.

I hope you will take a moment to visit The Card Concept and join us this week to play along with our challenge #151. How are you inspired by this photo?

I started by cutting a Shimmery White card front using the Potted Succulents Dies and adhered it to a panel of Butterfly Bijou Designer Series Paper using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the card front to a Mint Macaron card base using Stampin’ Seal.

I stamped the largest butterfly from the Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Brilliance Cling Stamp in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I cut the butterfly out using my Brilliant Wings Dies. I colored the butterfly in using my Bermuda Bay, Highland Heather and Magenta Madness Stampin’ Blends Markers. From a panel of Basic Black cardstock I cut the largest detailed butterfly using the Brilliant Wings Dies and adhered it to the colored butterfly using Multipurpose Liquid Glue just on the butterfly body and fluffed the wings out. I adhered the butterfly to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Shimmery White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Gala Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I immediately sprinkled it with my Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I cut the sentiment out using the Potted Succulents Dies and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Butterfly Gala stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I adhered 2 strips of Butterfly Bijou DSP to either side of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Basic Black mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Mint Macaron card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I adhered a strip of Butterfly Bijou DSP to the envelope front and a panel to the envelope flap.

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

Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Birthdays Brilliant Wings

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend? I was able to attend our quarterly meeting in person. It was only my team leader and myself along with everyone else virtually, but I really enjoyed myself. It was great getting out for a bit with someone other than my co-workers.

Today’s card is one that we made at our team meeting and it was designed by one of my team members and upline Jaimie Babarczy. She always designs simple yet elegant cards. All the cards we made yesterday used the Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Brilliance Collection in one way or another. I’ll be showing my cards throughout the week. Here’s my card for today.

I’m playing along with the Inspire. Create. Challenge #086.

I started by embossing a Terracotta Tile card front using the Tasteful Textiles 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered a panel of True Love Designer Series Paper to a Basic White mat using Stampin’ Seal then adhered the matted panel to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the card front to a Terracotta Tile card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Using my Brilliant Wings Dies, I cut the largest butterfly out of a panel of Butterfly Bijou Designer Series Paper. I adhered the cut DSP to a Basic White mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I cut another one of the same detailed butterflies out of a panel of Basic Black cardstock. I adhered the butterfly over the Butterfly Bijou DSP using Multipurpose Liquid Glue just on the body of the butterfly. I adhered the matted panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Basic Black cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Birthdays Cling Stamp Set in Versamark Ink. I immediately sprinkled it with my White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I cut the sentiment using my Tasteful Labels Dies and adhered it to the card front using a Stampin’ Dimensionals and Glue Dot. I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Moments Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. Remember that butterfly I cut out of the Butterfly Bijou DSP panel? I adhered it below the sentiments using Multipurpose Liquid Glue just on the body. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Basic Black mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Terracotta Tile card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of the Butterfly Bijou DSP to the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the True Love 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. Don’t forget, Terracotta Tile is one of the 2019-2021 In-Colors that will be retiring May 3rd. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Happy Thoughts Dragonfly

Good Sunday morning my fellow stampers. How is everyone’s weekend going? Did you all remember to turn your clocks ahead? I made sure I did all of mine before retiring last night. I love this time of year, getting up in the daylight and it staying light out later at night. How about you, which time of year do you prefer?

I have a quick card for you today using the Stampin’ Up! Happy Thoughts Cling Stamp Set and the Stampin’ Up! Dragonfly Garden. Here’s my card for today.

My colors are from Color Throwdown Challenge #633. These colors give me that summer feeling.

I played along with Just Us Girls Trend Week Challenge #575. Use and Embossing Folder.

I also played along with Stampin’ Up! Only Challenges #270. Their Theme is Sky High – anything That Flies.

I started by embossing a Crumb Cake card front using the Dandelion 3D Embossing Folder. On an panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Happy Thoughts stamp set in Basic Gray Ink. I punched the sentiment out using my Label Me Fancy Punch. I punched both sides of the sentiment using the Label Me Fancy Punch again and threaded a length of Seaside Spray 1/2″ Scalloped Linen Ribbon through.

I wrapped the ribbon around the card front securing it on the back of the card front using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the card front to a Seaside Spray card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the dragonfly image from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set in Basic Gray Ink twice. I punched both dragonflies out using my Dragonfly Punch. I colored one of the dragonfly’s wings using my Clear Wink of Stella brush and Seaside Spray Ink (which I put on a clear block). Using my Bone Folder, I fluffed the wings of the colored dragonfly and adhered just the bodies of the dragonflies together using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the dragonfly to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to my card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Happy Thoughts stamp set in Basic Gray Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the dragonfly image from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set on the panel in Basic Gray Ink, stamping off once. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Crumb Cake mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Seaside Spray card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the dragonfly image from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set in Basic Gray Ink on the envelope front and the envelope flap.

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

Stampin’ Up! Friends Are Like Seashells for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Are you ready for the weekend? I’m actually off this weekend from both my jobs. We do have our ‘In Person’ team meeting virtually this Sunday. I always look forward to the meeting even if we can’t meet up with everyone in person.

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’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Friends Are Like Seashells Bundle along with the Sand & Sea Designer Series Paper.

I started by scoring and folded my 5 1/2″ X 11″ card base at 4 1/4″, 7 1/2″ & 10 3/4″. I placed the 1/4″ scored line to the bottom of my Paper Trimmer and the left side of the card base at the 5/8″ mark. I cut from the 4 1/4″ scored line (which is now at the 6 3/4″ mark on your trimmer) all the way down. I cut at the 4 1/4″ scored line down the 5/8″ and removed the strip. On the 1/4″ fold line, using my Paper Snips, I trimmed the small piece off the top so that the 1/4″ fold line measures 4 1/4″. I adhered a strip of Tear & Tape Adhesive on the 1/4″ fold line and adhered the 2 3/4″ X 4 1/4″ panel of Seaside Spray cardstock.

For the front of the card I embossed a panel of Pearlescent Specialty Paper using the Seabed 3D Embossing Folder and I adhered it using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Friends Are Like Seashells Photopolymer Stamp Set in Sahara Sand Ink and cut it out using the Tasteful Labels Dies. I adhered it to the top of the panel using Glue Dots. I stamped the shells and starfish on scraps of the Sand & Sea DSP and cut them out using my Seaside Shells Dies. I stamped the sand dollar on a panel of Basic White cardstock in Sahara Sand Ink and immediately sprinkled it with my Clear Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.

I adhered panels of the Sea & Sand DSP to the inside of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I embossed a panel of the Sand & Sea DSP using the Seabed 3D Embossing Folder for the inside front panel and adhered it using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I stamped the sentiment from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped one of the scallop shells in Blushing Bride Ink on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to the inside panel using Stampin’ Seal.

On the other 2 Basic White panels I stamped the sentiments from the Seaside View stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink. On the larger panel I stamped the sand dollar and starfish images from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink on the bottom. On the center panel I stamped the scallop shell from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Seaside Spray Ink on the bottom. I adhered the panels to the inside of the card base using Stampin’ Seal. I added a few Opal Rounds to the card front and the inside panels.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the sand dollar & star fish from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink. I stamped the scalloped shells in Blushing Bride and Seaside Spray Ink. I adhered a panel of Sand & Sea DSP, which I embossed using the Seabed 3D Embossing Folder, to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. The list of measurements are below if you’d like to stamp along while watching the video. You can watch my video on my Facebook page Here.
