Stampin’ Up! Dressed To Impress Hello

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone’s weekend going? Is anyone doing anything fun? I’ve got today off for my team meeting, YAY!!!

For today’s card I pulled out an older set from the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Dressed To Impress Photopolymer Stamp Set for my card today.

My design is from CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge #423.

My colors are from the Color Throwdown Challenge #646.

I started by embossing a panel of Smoky Slate card stock using the Pretty Flowers Embossing Folder. I adhered a panel of the Night of Navy Ombre Specialty Paper to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and adhered the card front to a Smoky Slate card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White Cardstock I stamped the perfume bottle and the shoe image from the Dressed To Impress stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the images in using my Pool Party and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers. I brushed Wink of Stella on the shoe images to give it a little shimmer. I cut the images out using my All Dressed Up Dies. I adhered the die cut pieces to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, Glue Dots and Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Dressed To Impress stamp set in Night of Navy Ink. I stamped the splotch image from the Dressed To Impress stamp set in Pool Party Ink around the sentiment. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Dressed To Impress stamp set in Night of navy Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the splotch image around the sentiment in Pool Party Ink. I stamped the perfume bottle and shoe image from the Dressed To Impress stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom of the panel. I colored the images in using my Pool Party and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Pool Party mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Smoky Slate card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the perfume bottle on the envelope front and the shoe image from the Dressed To Impress stamp set on the envelope flap in Tuxedo Black Ink. I stamped the splotch image in Pool Party Ink on the envelope flap. I colored the images in using my Night of Navy, Pool Party and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers.

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

Stampin’ Up! A Good Man

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. We’re halfway through the week and on the downhill to the weekend. Is anyone starting to make plans?

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

I used the Stampin’ Up! A Good Man Cling Stamp Set for my card today. I was inspired by the trees in the photo and the woodgrain in the inspiration photo for my Clean and Layered card. I decided to make a card of a man vacationing and relaxing.

I hope you will take a moment to visit The Card Concept and join us this week to play along with our challenge #157. How are you inspired by this photo?

I joined in with Always Fun Challenges #217, “Layers”.

I started by adhering a panel of the Beauty of The Earth DSP to an Early Espresso card base using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered 2 more panels of the Beauty of The Earth DSP to Early Espresso mats using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the smaller panel to the card front using Stampin’ Seal and the ‘tree’ panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the image from A Good Man stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image in using my Bermuda Bay, Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Ivory, Pool Party and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image out using my Hippo & Friends Dies. From a panel of Early Espresso cardstock I cut the next size larger Hippo & Friends Dies and adhered the artwork using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the matted artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from A Good Man stamp set in Night of Navy Ink. I cut the sentiment out using my Stitched Rectangle Dies. I wrapped a piece of Linen Thread around the sentiment twice and tied a knot. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from A Good Man stamp set in Night of Navy Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I adhered a panel of Beauty of The Earth DSP to the bottom of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the Basic 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 complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the image from A Good Man stamp set on the envelope front in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image in the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of Beauty of The Earth 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!!

I’m planning to go live on my Facebook page with a project today at 4pm ET.  Please join me to see what card I will be making today.

Stampin’ Up! Encircled In Friendship for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? I think most of us may have had a short week, which I love. I’ll be working only on Sunday this weekend, so it’s really a short week for me. Does anyone have any plans yet?

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! Encircled In Friendship Bundle along with the Checks & Dots Embossing Folder.

My design is from Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge #365.

My colors are from CAS Colours & Sketch Challenge #422.

I started by embossing both sides of a Soft Succulent card base using the Checks & Dots Embossing Folder. I adhered the panel to a Thick Basic White mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered a panel of the Gorgeous Grape Ombre Specialty Paper to a small Thick Basic White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered a panel of the Fresh Freesia 2021-2023 In-Color Shimmer Vellum Paper to a Basic White mat using Stampin’ Seal just on the center of the panel. I adhered the matted panel to the Ombre card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut a panel of Soft Succulent cardstock using the middle Encircled In Beauty Dies. Using my Layering Circle Dies I cut a Basic White circle that would fit in the center of the detailed die. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Encircled In Friendship Cling Stamp Set in Soft Succulent Ink in the center of the circle. I stamped the single flower image from the Encircled In Friendship stamp set in Fresh Freesia Ink, stamping off once, over the sentiment. I adhered the sentiment to the center of the detailed die using Stampin’ Seal and then to the front of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Pastel Pearls to the card front.

On the inside of the small card base I stamped the sentiment from the Encircled In Friendship stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink. I stamped the floral image from the Encircled In Friendship stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom of the panel and colored it in using my Fresh Freesia and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the small card base to the matted panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I stamped the floral image from the Encircled In Friendship stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom front of a Basic White Medium Envelope. I colored the image in using my Fresh Freesia and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of the 2021- 2023 In-Color 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. 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.

Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Friendship Masculine Card

Good Monday morning my stamping friends and Happy Memorial Day!!! Please remember the reason we celebrate today. For all those that gave their lives for us, that never made it back home to their families.

Hard to believe another month gone. Is anyone going to or having a picnic today? I’ll be having a small picnic like I do every year. My daughter’s birthday falls near Memorial Day every year, so we always celebrate her birthday with a picnic. Hopefully all this rain we’ve been having will clear up to be an ok day. I think we’ve had all the rain we were suppose to have in April and May in these past 4 days. Today’s card is another one we will be making at our Stamp Camp card class tomorrow night. My design is from my team leader Amy Koenders. She made cards with this design, but different DSP a while back and I asked her if I could CASE it for my class. Here’s my card for today.

I used the new Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Friendship Bundle for my card today along with the Well Suited Designer Series Paper. This DSP will be retiring at the end of June. If it’s paper that you like, get it before it’s gone. I think it’s the perfect masculine paper.

I started by cutting a panel of Well Suited DSP using my Stitched Rectangle Dies. I adhered the panel to a Basic Black mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to a Pacific Point card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

From another panel of the Well Suited DSP I cut the largest tag from the Tailored Tags Dies. I cut the small tag topper from a scrap of Pacific Point cardstock using the Tailored Tags Dies and adhered it to the top using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I threaded a piece of Gray Granite 1/4″ Shimmer Ribbon through the top and looped it so it would hold. I adhered the tag to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Friendship Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I cut the sentiment out using the label die from the Beautiful Trees Dies. I cut another label out from a strip of Pacific Point cardstock. I adhered the Pacific Point label to the tag using Stampin’ Seal then the sentiment label above using Stampin’ Seal. I added a few Matte Black Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! A Good Man Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I adhered a strip of Well Suited DSP to the bottom 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 Pacific Point card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I added a strip of the Well Suited DSP to the front of a Basic White Medium Envelope and a panel to 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! Sweet As A Peach for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? It’s been crazy here this week with the weather, hot, cool, smoldering, stormy then cool again. It’s supposed to drop to the 50’s this weekend. Dose anyone have any plans? I’ll be working all day tomorrow and since the last day of the month is Monday, Memorial Day and the store is closed, I have to go into the office to work on Sunday.

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! Sweet As A Peach Bundle along with the You’re A Peach Designer Series Paper for my card.

I started by cutting the outside edge of the card base using the Basic Borders Dies. I cut a panel of Ombre Specialty Paper using the same Basic Borders Dies and adhered it to the front or the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Using the Scalloped Contours Dies I cut a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the stem/leaves image from the Stampin’ Up! Sweet As A Peach Photopolymer Stamp Set in Granny Apple Green Ink. I stamped the small peach image from the Sweet As A Peach stamp set in Petal Pink Ink on the stems. I stamped the small peach image again on a small panel of Basic White cardstock and cut them out using the Peach Dies. I stamped the sentiments from the Sweet As A Peach stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink on the bottom of the scalloped panel. I adhered one of the cut peaches to the stem using a Glue Dot and the other 2 using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered the scalloped frame to the front of the card base on top of the Ombre Specialty Paper using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Blue Adhesive-Backed Gems to the card front.

On the inside I adhered a panel of You’re A Peach DSP to the inside of the Petal Pink card base using Stampin’ Seal. On a small panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the larger peach image from, the Sweet As A Peach stamp set in Petal Pink Ink. I stamped the stem/leaves on the peach in Granny Apple Green Ink. I stamped the sentiment from the Sweet As A Peach stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink on the Basic White panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to the inside of the Petal Pink card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the large peach image from the Sweet As A Peach stamp set twice on the envelope front in Petal Pink Ink. I stamped the stem/leaves image in Granny Apple Green Ink. I adhered a panel of You’re A Peach 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. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Fresh Freesia Color and Contour

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone’s weekend going? Hope you are all making the best of it and having some fun.

Today’s card uses some of the 2021-2023 In-Colors. I’m really loving these new colors this year. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Color & Contour Bundle for my card along with the beautiful 2021-2023 In-Color Shimmer Vellum Paper.

I played along with Festive Friday Challenge #084. I have Green, Die Cuts & Flowers.

I started by stamping the outline flower image from the Stampin’ Up! Color & Contour Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the flower fill image in Fresh Freesia Ink over the outline image. I cut the flower out using the Scalloped Contours Dies. I cut the middle scallop frame from Scalloped Contours Dies from the Basic White panel. Using my Blending Brushes, I added some Soft Succulent Ink on the scalloped frame. I stamped the sentiment from the Color & Contour stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom of the frame. I adhered the flower to the frame using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I embossed a panel of the 2021-2023 In-Color Shimmer Vellum Paper using the Pretty Flowers Embossing Folder. I adhered the Vellum panel to a Soft Succulent mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue just behind where I was putting the frame. I adhered the matted card front to a Fresh Freesia card base using Stampin’ Seal.

I adhered a length of Soft Succulent 3/8″ Open Weave Ribbon to the card front using Glue Dots. I adhered the artwork over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few 2021-2023 In-Color Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Love What You Do Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I stamped the flower image from the Color & Contour stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink to the side of the sentiment. I stamped the flower fill color in Fresh Freesia Ink over the outline image. I adhered a strip of the 2021-2023 In-Color Shimmer Vellum Paper to the bottom of the panel using Stampin’ Seal only on the sides. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Soft Succulent mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Fresh Freesia card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the outline flower image from the Color & Contour stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I stamped the flower fill image in Fresh Freesia Ink. I adhered a panel of the 2021-2023 In-Color 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! True Love Pansy Patch CAS

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends. How has everyone’s week started off? We’re going to have a warm week here. I looked ahead and we’re in the upper 80’s all week, YAY!!! Looks like summer might be here.

I have a CAS card for you today using the Stampin’ Up! Pansy Patch Photopolymer Stamp Set and the True Love Designer Series Paper. Here’s my card for today.

My design is from Fab Friday Challenge #213.

I started by adhering a panel of the True Love DSP to a Thick Basic White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I fussy card a flower from another panel of the True Love DSP using my Paper Snips. I colored the image in using my Fresh Freesia, Pale Papaya and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I adhered the flower image to the center of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Pansy Patch stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. Using my Pale Papaya Stampin’ Write Markers I edged the strip to give it a little color. I adhered the sentiment over the flower image on the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Fresh Freesia 2021-2023 In-Color Jewels.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Pansy Patch stamp set in the center of a Basic White panel in Tuxedo Black Ink. I fussy cut another flower from the True Love DSP using my Paper Snips and colored it in using my Fresh Freesia, Pale Papaya and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the flower to the bottom of the panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the Basie White panel to a Fresh Freesia mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Thick Basic White card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of the True Love DSP to the envelope front and a panel 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 Sunny Sentiment

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends. I hope you have some fun plans for the weekend.

I have a quick card for you today using the new Stampin’ Up! Daisy Garden Cling Stamp Set and the Stampin’ Up! Sunny Sentiments Cling Stamp Set. Here’s my card for today.

My colors are from The Spot Challenge #161.

I started by stamping the large daisy image from the Daisy Garden stamp set on a panel of Basic White cardstock in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image in using my Granny Apple Green, Magenta Madness and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the panel using my Stitched Rectangle Dies.

I adhered the cut panel to a Fresh Freesia mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to a Basic Black mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the matted card front to a Fresh Freesia card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Sunny Sentiments stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I cut the image out using the Ornate Frames Dies and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few of the Magenta Madness 2020-2022 In-Color Square Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Sunny Sentiments stamp set in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the daisy image from the Daisy Garden stamp set on the bottom corner of the panel and colored it in using my Granny Apple Green, Magenta Madness and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Basic Black mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Fresh Freesia card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the daisy image from the Daisy Garden stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom front of the envelope and the envelope flap. I colored the images in using my Granny Apple Green, Magenta Madness and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers.

Stampin’ Up! Hats Off for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers. Welcome to Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop. It’s the 2nd Tuesday of the month so that means Blog Hop Day!! If you are starting with me, be sure to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects. If you’ve hopped over from Amy Koenders’ blog, welcome to my blog and thank you for stopping by. The theme this month is “For the Men/Boys”.  We can interpret this however we want.  Here’s my card for today.

I used the new Stampin’ Up! Hats Off Bundle for my card today.

I started by embossing a panel of Night of Navy cardstock using the new Bark 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the embossed panel to a Crumb Cake card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Crumb Cake cardstock I stamped the hat image from the Stampin’ Up! Hats Off Photopolymer Stamp Set in Crumb Cake Ink. I cut the image out using the Hat Builder Dies. On a small panel of Coastal Cabana cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Hats Off stamp set in Night of Navy Ink. I cut the sentiment out using the Hat Builder Dies and adhered it to the hat using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered the hat to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the card front to a Night of Navy card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Metallic Pearls to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the 2 sentiments from the Hats Off stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on a Basic White panel. I adhered the Basic White 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. I cut the small hat from the Hat Builder Dies out of the Crumb Cake panel and adhered it next to the sentiment using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the hat image from the Hats Off stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink on the envelope front. I colored the hat in using my Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of In Good Taste Designer Series Paper to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Quiet Meadow Hello CAS

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. Happy Cinco de Mayo!!! Does anyone have any kind of celebration today? We’re halfway through the week and on our way to the weekend already. I hope you are all starting to make some fun plans.

Don’t forget I have Double Creative Stamping Designs Rewards going on until Tuesday May 11th!! For orders $50 or more before tax and shipping I will give you double rewards, but please don’t for get to use my Current Host Code QH7JDXHB. So that means $50 = 2 rewards, $100 = 4 rewards, $150 = 6 rewards etc. Click Here for details about my reward program.

Today’s card is one we will be making at my card class last night. I had fun stamping with a couple beginners. It reminded me of when I first started and had no idea what I was doing. I’ve made another clean and simple card using some DSP. Here’s my card for today.

I used the new Stampin’ Up! Quiet Meadow Cling Stamp Set along with the Hydrangea Hill Designer Series Paper.

I started by stamping the flower image from the Quiet Meadow stamp set in Gorgeous Grape Ink multiple times on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the splotch image from the Quiet Meadow stamp set in Gorgeous Grape Ink, stamping off once, randomly around the flowers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Gorgeous Grape mat using Stampin’ Seal.

On a panel of Hydrangea Hill DSP I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Sweet Strawberry Photopolymer Stamp Set in Gorgeous Grape Ink on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the DSP panel to a Basic White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered the matted artwork to the side of the sentiment using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Playing With Patterns Resin Dots to the top of the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Quiet Meadow stamp set in Gorgeous Grape Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the flower image from the Quiet Meadow stamp set in Gorgeous Grape Ink, stamping off once, on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the splotch image from the Quiet Meadow stamp set in Gorgeous Grape Ink, stamping off once, around the flower. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Gorgeous Grape 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 flower image from the Quiet Meadow stamp set in Gorgeous Grape Ink on the envelope front. I stamped the splotch image from the Quiet Meadow stamp set in Gorgeous Grape Ink, stamping off once, around the flowers. 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. Don’t forget about my Double Creative Stamping Designs Rewards going on until Monday May 10th!! For orders $50 or more before tax and shipping I will give you double rewards. Happy Stamping!!
