Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern Friendship

Good Monday morning my stamping friends.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Did anyone do anything fun?  It was a pretty quiet weekend other than work.  Mu husband got out taxes done finally, nothing like waiting till the last minute.

For today’s card I have a bit of a collage card for you.  I was playing around with the Forever Flourish Dies and here’s what I came up with.

My card played along with Festive Friday Challenge # FF0063.  Here is their Inspo List. I have the Friendship Sentiment (on the inside), Green, Ribbon, Die Cuts and Embossing.

I started by cutting the different flourishes from the Forever Flourishing Dies from panels of Just Jade, Pear Pizzazz, Pretty Peacock and Soft Seafoam.  Some I cut 1 of, some 2 and some 4.

I stamped some of the leaf images from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern Cling Stamp Set on a panel of Whisper White cardstock in Garden Green, Pear Pizzazz, Pretty Peacock and Shaded Spruce.  I cut all those images out using the Forever Flourishing Dies.  I arranged all the greenery the way I liked it on my E Clear Acrylic Block.  I place the F Clear Acrylic Block on top of them and flipped it over, removed the E Block and adhered Stampin’ Dimensionals and Glue Dots around holding the pieces together.  I knew I wouldn’t be able to remember how I arranged them that’s why I did it that way.

I embossed a Shaded Spruce card  front using the Greenery Embossing Folder.  I embossed 1/2 the cardstock and then lined it up and embossed the other 1/2.  I adhered 2 of the Forever Gold Laser-Cut Specialty Paper to the card front using Glue Dots.  I adhered the collage of greenery on top of the laser-cut pieces using the Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I wrapped a piece of the Whisper White 1/2″ Faux Linen Ribbon, from the Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack, around the card front and tied a bow.  I adhered the card front to a Soft Sea Foam card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Forever Fern stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped one of the leafy images from Forever Fern stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on the bottom right of the panel and the eucalyptus image in Pretty Peacock Ink on the other side.  I stamped the splatter image from the Forever Fern stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink around the leaves and sentiment.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Shaded Spruce mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Soft Sea Foam card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the leaf images from the Forever Fern stamp set in Garden Green, Pear Pizzazz, Pretty Peacock and Shaded Spruce Inks on the envelope front and envelope flap.  I stamped the splatter image from the Forever Fern stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink around the leaf images.

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

Stampin’ Up! Framed Flowers for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday!!  How was everyone’s week?  The weekend is upon us, do you have any plans?  I had a wonderful day at the beach yesterday.  It looked a little iffy when we first got there with the fog and clouds, but it turned out to be an absolutely gorgeous day.  The sun was shining and the water was perfect.  By the afternoon we couldn’t even sit at our blanket the sun got so hot, so we went in the ocean for over an hour.  The waves were awesome, I’m guessing because of the storm we are supposed to get today.  I only came home with a little sunburn (ok, maybe a lot) and blistered feet because of the sand being so darn hot.  The beach is my happy place and now today it’s back to reality.

I have a corner flip fold card for you today.  Here’s my card.

I played along with The Paper Players Challenge #498.  Here is their Theme.

I started by adhering a panel of Flowers For Every Season 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Misty Moonlight card base using Stampin’ Seal.  I then cut my card front using my Paper Trimmer.  I placed the card front bottom edge down, at the 3″ mark on my trimmer and cut from the 2 1/2″ mark up to the 4 7/8″ mark.  I turned my card base a 1/4 turn (so the outside edge was down) and place it at the 3″ mark again on my trimmer.  I cut from the 3″ mark down to the 5/8″ mark.  I pushed the cut piece through from the bottom and flipped it around so the inside was now on the outside.

I stamped the frame image from the Stampin’ Up! Framed For You Cling Stamp Set in Cinnamon Cider Ink on a Cinnamon Cider panel.  I cut the frame out using the largest and 5th from largest squares from my Layering Squares Dies.  I adhered a small panel of Flowers For Every Season  DSP to the flipped corner using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the frame over the DSP using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added Antique Corners from the Antique Corners & Slides Elements to the 4 corners of the frame using Glue Dots.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers Cling Stamp Set in Misty Moonlight Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using my Hippo & Friends Dies.  I adhered a piece of Cinnamon Cider 2020-2022 In-Color 1/4″ Ribbon to the bottom of the card front using a Glue Dot.  I adhered the sentiment over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Just Jade 2020-2022 In-Color Enamel Dots to the sentiment  and the inner liner which shows through to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the leaf images from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Just Jade Ink around the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Cinnamon Cider mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Misty Moonlight card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the leaf images from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Just Jade Ink along the bottom front of the envelope.  I adhered a panel of the Flowers For Every Season 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! Seaside View Hello for Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends and welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop.  How is everyone doing today?  With any luck, by the time you are reading this, I’ll be at the Jersey Shore for the day.  If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we had a Sketch Challenge. Be sure to take a moment 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.

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

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the palm tree and Adirondack chair images from the Stampin’ Up! Seaside View Cling Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink.  I stamped the sand image from the Stampin’ Up! High Tide Photopolymer Stamp Set in Sahara Sand Ink multiple times on the bottom of the panel.  I stamped the grass image from the High Tide stamp set in Just Jade Ink around the palm tree.  I colored the sky using my Balmy Blue and Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the birds from the Seaside View stamp set in Soft Suede Ink.  I colored all the images in using my Cinnamon Cider, Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Just Jade, Misty Moonlight and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I adhered the artwork to a Pool Party mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips Photopolymer Stamp Set in Just Jade Ink on a small panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I cut the image out using the smallest die from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies and adhered it to the artwork using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Seaside View stamp set in Just Jade Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the palm tree and bird images from the Seaside View stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the bottom of the panel and either side of the sentiment.  I colored the images in using my Crumb Cake, Just Jade and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pool Party mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Pool Party card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the palm tree and bird images from the Seaside View stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the envelope front.  I colored the images in using my Crumb Cake, Just Jade and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of In Good Taste DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Positive Thoughts for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

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

Here is my card using the new 2020-2022 In- Colors.

My design is from Sunday Stamps Challenge #234 Going In Circles.  Here is their sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of In Good Taste Designer Series Paper to a Cinnamon Cider mat using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered the card front to a Cinnamon Cider card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Using the Stampin’ Up! Positive Thoughts Cling Stamp Set I stamped the butterfly image in Bumblebee Ink, the feather image in Misty Moonlight Ink, the flower in Magenta Madness Ink and the leafy images in Just Jade Ink.  I cut all the images out using the Nature’s Thoughts Dies.  I adhered the leafy images to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I added some Misty Moonlight/Silver Bakers Twine from the Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack to the card front using Glue Dots.  I added the butterfly, feather and flower to the card front using Stampn’ Dimensionals.

On a thin strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Thanks Photopolymer Stamp Set in Cinnamon Cider Ink.  I made the strip into a banner using my Paper Snips and adhered it to the card front using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Cinnamon Cider 2020-2022 In-Color Enamel Dots to the card front.   I cut a small butterfly using the Nature’s Thoughts Dies from a Silver Foil Sheet and adhered it to the twine using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Positive Thoughts stamp set in Cinnamon Cider Ink.  I stamped the feather from the Positive Thoughts stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink on the side of the sentiment.  I stamped the leafy image from the Positive Thoughts stamp set in Just Jade Ink on the other side of the sentiment.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Cinnamon Cider mat using Stampin’ Seal 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.  Using my Positive Thoughts stamp set, I stamped the butterfly in Bumblebee Ink, the feather in Misty Moonlight Ink and the leafy image in Just Jade Ink on the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of In Good Taste DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Cute Fruit for Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends and welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop.  How is everyone doing today?  If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we had a Sketch Challenge. Be sure to take a moment 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.

I started by adhering a panel of Artistry Bloom Designer Series Paper to a Whisper White card base using Stampin’ Seal.

I adhered 3 panels of Basic Black cardstock to a Granny Apple Green panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I embossed the panel using my Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder.  On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the banana and pineapple bottom images from the Stampin’ Up! Cute Fruit Photopolymer Stamp Set in Daffodil Delight Ink.  I stamped the pineapple top and the watermelon rind images from the Cute Fruit stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink.  I stamped the watermelon image from the Cute Fruit stamp set inside the rind image in Melon Mambo Ink.  I stamped all the face images from the Cute Fruit stamp set on the fruit in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I fussy cut all the fruit using my Paper Snips.

I adhered all the cut fruit image to the Basic Black panels using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the artwork panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  On a thin strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Cute Fruit stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I adhered the sentiment across the fruit images using Stampin’ Dimensionals and Glue Dots.  I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Cute Fruit stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the watermelon rind image from the Cute Fruit stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink on the panel.  I stamped the watermelon image from the Cute Fruit stamp set inside the rind in Melon Mambo Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Granny Apple Green mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the pineapple bottom and banana images from the Cute Fruit stamp set in Daffodil Delight Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped the pineapple top image from the Cute Fruit stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink.  I stamped the face images from the Cute Fruit stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the fruit.  I adhered a panel of the Artistry Blooms 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! Just Saying Hello

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends.  Hope you are all having a wonderful week.    For today’s card my colors were inspired by some of my beautiful Hydrangea’s in one of my gardens.  I have so many beautiful blooms this year and multiple colors on one plant.  I think this is the best year ever with them. When I saw them blooming I immediately thought Balmy Blue and Purple Posy.

Here is my card for today.

My design is from Global Design Project Challenge #246.  Here is their sketch.

I started by stamping a Very Vanilla card front with the flower image from the Stampin’ Up! Tasteful Touches Cling Stamp Set with Balmy Blue Ink.  I stamped 2 of the flowers full strength and 2 stamped off once.  I stamped the feather image from the Tasteful Touches stamp set 3 times colored with my Purple Posy Stampin’ Write Marker.

I stamped the top part of the sentiment from the Tasteful Touches stamp set in Early Espresso Ink.  I stamped the ‘hello’ from the sentiment on a strip of Very Vanilla card stock in Early Espresso Ink.  I adhered the ‘hello’ below the stamped sentiment using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered a strip of In Good Taste Designer Series Paper to the edge of a Thick Very Vanilla card base using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered the card front to the Thick Very Vanilla card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I added a few Pearl Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Tasteful Touches stamp set in Early Espresso Ink in the center of a Very Vanilla panel.  I stamped the feather image from the Tasteful Touches stamp set, colored with my Purple Posy Stampin’ Write Marker, on either side of the sentiment.  I stamped the flower image from the Tasteful Touches stamp set in Balmy Blue Ink on the bottom of the panel.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to the inside of the Thick Very Vanilla card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I stamped the flower image from the Tasteful Touches stamp set in Balmy Blue Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped the feather image from the Tasteful Touches stamp set, colored with my Purple Posy Stampin’ Write Marker, 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!!

Forever Fern Hello Friendship

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends.  We’re halfway through the week already and more that halfway through the month.  Time is really flying by lately.

I have one more card for you today that we made at our team meeting on Sunday.  This one was designed by our fabulous team leader Amy Koenders.  She designs the most beautiful cards and loves to use woodgrain paper.  Here’s my card for today.

I started by adhering a panel of In Good Taste Designer Series Paper to an Early Espresso mat using Stampin’ Seal.

From the Just Jade panel I used the largest die from the Forever Flourishing Dies.  I cut 2 of the eucalyptus dies from the Forever Flourishing Dies out of the Pretty Peacock panel.  I stamped 2 of the leaf images from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern Cling Stamp Set in Shaded Spruce Ink on a small panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I stamped the medium and small leaf images from the Forever Fern stamp set in Just Jade Ink on the Whisper White panel.  I cut all the images out using the Forever Flourishing Dies.  Amy used the Gold Hoops Embellishments for her card which I didn’t have, so I decided to use the Gold 1/16″ trim from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack.  I adhered a piece of the gold trim on the card front using Glue Dots and then started layering all the greenery the way I wanted on top of it adhering everything down with Glue Dots or Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the Whisper White panel I stamped the sentiment from the Forever Fern stamp set in Cinnamon Cider Ink and cut it out using the smallest rectangle from the Stitched Rectangle Dies.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the card front to an Early Espresso card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals and added a few Gold Glitter Enamel Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Forever Fern stamp set in Cinnamon Cider Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the leaf images from the Forever Fern stamp set around the edges in Just Jade and Shaded Spruce Inks.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to an Early Espresso mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Early Espresso card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the leaf images from the Forever Fern stamp set in Just Jade and Shaded Spruce Inks on the front of the envelope. 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 the card we made from our team meeting and will give it a try.  We’d love to have you join us at our meeting.  If you’re interested in joining our team, I’d be happy to talk to you about it, just drop me a line.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern Hello

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends.  How has everyone’s week started off?  Things are starting to open up here in NJ.  From what I’ve heard, there are a lot of people not being responsible with keeping their distance.  I will not be going out to any other stores than the one’s I’ve been going to for the past few months.  Because things opened it doesn’t mean it’s over.  People need to be responsible.  Ok, I’m done ranting.

For today’s card I have another one we made at our team meeting on Sunday.  this one was designed by another team member, Mary Deatherage and she made such a beauty.  Here is my card for today.

I started by adhering a panel of Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper to a Soft Sea Foam mat using Stampin’ Seal.  I embossed a panel of Shaded Spruce cardstock using the Greenery Embossing Folder then adhered it to a Soft Sea Foam mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the matted embossed panel to the center of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered one of the Forever Gold Laser-Cut Specialty  Paper to the center of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  On a small panel of Soft Sea Foam cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern Cling Stamp Set in Shaded Spruce Ink.  I stamped the small leaf image from the Forever Fern stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink over the sentiment a couple times.  I stamped the splatter image from the Forever Fern stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink, stamping off once, around the sentiment and leaves.  I cut the sentiment out using the 2nd smallest circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies and adhered it to the center of the gold laser-cut paper using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered the card front to a Basic Black card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals and added a few Elegant Faceted Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Free As A Bird Cling Stamp Set in Shaded Spruce Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the leaf images from the Forever Fern stamp set in Shaded Spruce and Soft Sea Foam Inks on the side of the panel.  I stamped the splatter image from the Forever Fern stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink, stamping off once, around the leaf images.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Soft Sea Foam mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Basic Black card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the leaf images from the Forever Fern stamp set in Shaded Spruce and Soft Sea Foam Inks on the envelope front.  I stamped the splatter image from the Forever Fern stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink, stamping off once, around the leaf images.  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 the card we made at our team meeting and will give it a try.  We do our team meetings in person every quarter and have a great time.  If you’d like to join our team, drop me a line and I’d be happy to talk to you about joining.  Now is the perfect time to join with the awesome joining special Stampin’ Up! has.  See details below.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Turtle Love for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

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

As soon as my daughter saw this stamp set she asked me to make a card for her using the Turtle.  She has a whole turtle collection.  Here’s my card using this sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of the Whale of a Time 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Balmy Blue card base using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered another panel of the Whale of a Time 6 X 6 DSP to a Balmy Blue mat using Stampin’ Seal and then adhered it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the turtle image from the Stampin’ Up! Whale Done Photopolymer Stamp Set in Just Jade Ink.  I stamped the sentiment from the Whale Done stamp set in Blackberry Bliss Ink below the turtle image.  I cut the image out using the 2nd largest oval from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I cut a scalloped mat out of Balmy Blue cardstock using the Layering Ovals Dies.  I adhered the artwork to the mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added some of the Whale of a Time Sequins to the card front using my Fine Tip Glue Pen.

On the inside I adhered 2 strips of the Whale of a Time DSP to either side of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Many Mates Cling Stamp Set in Blackberry Bliss Ink in the center of the panel.  I stamped the seaweed image from the Whale Done stamp set in Shaded Spruce ink on the bottom of the panel, stamping off once.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Balmy Blue mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Balmy Blue card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the turtle image from the Whale Done stamp set on the envelope front in Just Jade Ink.  I adhered a panel of the Whale of a Time 6 X 6 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! Beautiful Journey

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends.  How is everyone’s week going?  Hope you are all having a productive one.  We’re already half way through the week and the weekend is right around the corner.

I have a masculine card for you today.  I’m really loving this set more than I thought I would.  Here’s my card for today.

My colors were inspired by TGIF Color Challenge #267.  Here are their colors.

My design is from Fab Friday Challenge #191.  Here is their sketch.

I started by embossing a Crumb Cake card front using the Old World Paper 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the panel to a Night of Navy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered 2 different panels of the World of Good Specialty Designer Series Paper to Night of Navy mats using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered the bottom matted DSP to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the top one using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Crum Cake cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Beautiful World Cling Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink.  I stamped the quill image from the Beautiful World stamp set in Night of Navy Ink next to the sentiment.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  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 Beautiful World stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on a Very Vanilla panel.  I stamped the quill image from the Beautiful World stamp set above the sentiment and the ink pot image from the Beautiful World stamp set on the bottom of the panel.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Crumb Cake mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Night of Navy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I stamped the ink pot and quill images from the Beautiful World stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on the bottom of the envelope.  I adhered a panel of the World of Good 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!!
