Stampin’ Up! Sending Smiles Daisy Hello

Good Monday morning my stamping friends and Happy Memorial Day. I hope you can enjoy your day with family and friends getting together for a picnic or some fun activities. Please take a moment to remember all those who have served for us. We’ll be having a small picnic today with some friends and family. We’ll be celebrating my daughter and puppy’s birthday. My husband and a few of his friends will be walking into town to watch some of the Tour de Somerville bike races. This is a big thing here on Memorial Day in my town, hundreds of people come from all over the world to race in this. They start closing the streets in town at 3am to get set up. For 13 years I walked with my girl scouts in the parade at 8am that kicked everything off. They now start all the races at 8am starting with the family fun races. The big pro womans race starts at 2:15, having to ride 25 miles, and the pro men’s race starts at 3:45, having to ride 50 miles. It’s very exciting watching hundreds of riders starting the races and then how many are left at the end. From what I’ve heard there is a waiting list of contenders to get in on this. They have the award ceremony around 6pm that wraps everything up, with winners from both the pro womans and pro men’s races.

Today’s card is a sketch challenge from my Upline Jaimie. She’s been giving us a sketch a week to work with. I’m really liking this quick and easy one. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Sending Smiles Panel 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Sending Smiles Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Fresh As A Daisy Designer Series Paper and Designer Tags Dies for my card today.

This is our sketch for this week.

Stampin' Up! Sending Smiles Panel 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by adhering a panel of Fresh As A Daisy DSP to a Lemon Lolly mat using Stampin’ Seal. I stamped the sentiment from Sending Smiles stamp set in Versamark Ink on the bottom of the panel. I sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder and set it using the Heat Tool.

Stampin' Up! Sending Smiles Panel 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

I adhered 3 panels of Fresh As A Daisy DSP to 3 Lemon Lolly mats using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the 3 layered panels to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I wrapped a piece of Lemon Lolly 3/8″ Sheer Ribbon from the Sheer Ribbon Combo Pack around the layered panel and tied a bow.

Stampin' Up! Sending Smiles Panel 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

I adhered the layered panel to a Pebbled Path card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. Using the Designer Tags Dies, I cut a butterfly from a panel of Lemon Lolly cardstock. I adhered the butterfly to the card front using Glue Dots. I added a couple 2023-2025 In-Color Dots to the butterfly. I added a few Adhesive-Backed Solid Gems to the card front.

Stampin' Up! Sending Smiles Panel 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside, I stamped the sentiments from the Sending Smiles stamp set in Pebbled Path Ink on a panel of Basic White. I stamped the larger stem from the Sending Smiles stamp set in Garden Green Ink on the side of the panel. I stamped the daisy image from the Sending Smiles stamp set in Lemon Lolly Ink on the stem. I stamped the flower center in Wild Wheat Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Lemon Lolly mat then to the inside of the Pebbled Path card base.

Stampin' Up! Sending Smiles Panel 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the stem image from the Sending Smiles stamp set in Garden Green Ink on the envelop front. I stamped the daisy on the stem in Lemon Lolly Ink and the flower center in Wild Wheat Ink. I adhered a panel of Fresh As A Daisy DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Circle Sayings for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. If you are starting with me, thank you. I hope you will stop by everyone’s blog to see what they have created this week. If you are hopping over from Akiko’s blog, thank you for stopping by. This week we have Sketch Challenge. Here is my card using this week’s sketch.

Stampin' Up! Circle Sayings Smile 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Circle Sayings Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Stampin’ Up! Irresistible Blooms Cling Stamp Set, Hello Irresistible 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper and the 2″ Circle Punch for my card today.

This is our sketch for this week.

Stampin' Up! Circle Sayings Smile 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by adhering a panel of Hello Irresistible DSP to a Lost Lagoon mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to a Soft Sea Foam card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Circle Sayings Smile 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

I adhered a smaller panel of the Hello Irresistible DSP to a Lost Lagoon mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Circle Sayings Smile 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White, I stamped the banner sentiment from the Circle Sayings stamp set in Lost Lagoon Ink. I wanted the sentiment to fit the smaller punch, so I bent it a little to fit before stamping. I stamped the flower image from the Irresistible Blooms stamp set in Flirty Flamingo Ink, stamping off on scrap paper, under the sentiment. I stamped the smile sentiment from the Circle Sayings stamp set over the flower in Lost Lagoon Ink. I punched the sentiment out using the 2″ Circle Punch. I adhered 2 pieces of Lost Lagoon 1/4″ Bordered Ribbon to the card front using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the circle sentiment over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Loose Frosted Dots using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Circle Sayings Smile 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Circle Sayings stamp set in Lost Lagoon Ink on a panel of Basic White. I stamped the sun burst image from the Circle Sayings stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink above the sentiment. I stamped the flower image from the Irresistible Blooms stamp set in Flirty Flamingo Ink on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the leaf images from the Irresistible Blooms stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink around the flower. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Lost lagoon mat then to the inside of the Soft Sea Foam card base.

Stampin' Up! Circle Sayings Smile 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

Stampin’ Up! Quiet Meadow for The Card Concepts

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. We’re halfway through the week already. I hope you are all having a good week.

It’s time for an inspiration challenge from The Card Concepts. We have a new fun challenge this week.  The inspiration photo #196 is Patriotic Picnic. Here is my card that was inspired from the challenge photo.

Stampin' Up! Quiet Meadow 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Quiet Meadow Cling Stamp Set along with the Stripes and Splatters 3D Embossing Folder and Bright & Beautiful 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my Clean and Layered Card. I was inspired by the stars and stripes in the photo along with the Colors and Flowers.

I hope you will take a moment to visit The Card Concepts and join us for our challenge 196.  How are you inspired by the photos?

Stampin' Up! Quiet Meadow 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by inking up the Stripes Embossing Folder, from the Stripes and Splatters 3D Embossing Folder, with Real Red Ink. I ran it through my Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine on a Basic White card front. I did this twice to get the top and bottom of the panel. I adhered the embossed panel to a Blueberry Bushel card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered a panel of Bright & Beautiful DSP to the center of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Quiet Meadow 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the flower image from the Quiet Meadow stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the flowers using Real Red Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the script image from the Quiet Meadow stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink multiple times on the panel over the flower, stamping off on scrap paper twice before stamping on the panel.

Stampin' Up! Quiet Meadow 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

Using the scalloped die from the Zany Zoo Dies, I cut a panel of Crumb Cake cardstock. I adhered the scalloped strip behind the artwork using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. On a strip of Blueberry Bushel cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Quiet Meadow stamp set in Versamark Ink. I sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder and set it using the Heat Tool. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Adhesive-Backed Sparkle Gems to the card front.

Stampin' Up! Quiet Meadow 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Quiet Meadow stamp set in Blueberry Bushel Ink on a panel of Basic White. I stamped the flower image from the Quiet Meadow stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the side of the panel. I colored the flowers with the Real Red Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the splatter image from the Quiet Meadow stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink over the flowers, stamping off on scrap paper first. I adhered a strip of Bright & Beautiful DSP to the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Real Red mat then to the inside of the Blueberry Bushel card base.

Stampin' Up! Quiet Meadow 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the flower image from the Quiet Meadow stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I colored the flowers with the Real Red Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the splatter image from the Quiet Meadow stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink over the flowers.

Stampin’ Up! Cheerful Daisies CAS

Good Monday morning my stamping friends welcome to a new week. What did everyone do this weekend? I can’t believe it’s nearing the end of May already. The end of this week my puppy Coraline will be 1. I have something special for her on Friday, but we will be celebrating her birthday on Memorial Day with my daughter’s birthday.

I have a CAS card for you today. My upline Jaimie has been giving us sketch challenges each week to do. I went a little out of order so I did #2 this week and I believe I did #3 last week. This is my take on the sketch, I turned it for a different look.

Stampin' Up! Cheerful Daisies CAS 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Cheerful Daisies Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Fresh As A Daisy Designer Series Paper for my card today.

This was our week 2 sketch.

Stampin' Up! Cheerful Daisies CAS 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by adhering a panel of Fresh As A Daisy DSP to a Copper Clay mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered a strip of the Fresh As A Daisy DSP to the left side of the layered panel. I adhered the layered panel to the Boho Blue card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Cheerful Daisies CAS 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a strip of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Cheerful Daisies stamp set in Copper Clay Ink.

Stampin' Up! Cheerful Daisies CAS 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

I folded a strip of Vellum Basics Paper into a banner and cut the ends using my Paper Snips. I adhered the vellum banner to the card front using Glue Dots. I adhered the sentiment over the banner using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Cheerful Daisies CAS 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Cheerful Daisies stamp set in Copper Clay Ink on a panel of Basic White. I stamped the stem, leaf and medium daisy image from the Cheerful Daisies stamp set in Versamark Ink next to the sentiment. It is very hard to see in the photo. I sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder and set it using the Heat Tool. I stamped the daisy center in Copper Clay Ink on the embossed daisy. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Copper Clay mat then to the inside of the Boho Blue card base.

Stampin' Up! Cheerful Daisies CAS 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the small cluster of daisies from the Cheerful Daisies stamp set in Versamark Ink on the envelope front. I sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder and set it using the Heat Tool. I adhered a panel of Fresh As A Daisy DSP to the envelope flap.

In response to changing policies at Stampin’ Up – I’m adjusting my Ordering Gift policy as well.  I’m having to get a little more tough on the adding of Host codes when you place your order thru my Online Store.

Not to worry – you’re still going to get that $10 ordering gift for orders of $50 (before shipping & tax) or greater.  And the gift is still any 1 SU! product up to that $10 value – which includes some of our fun Host Sets!

But – if you DO NOT use the Host code for your orders of less than $150 (this is the RETAIL total before Shipping & Handling), then you’ll have two options:

  1. You’ll need to call Stampin’ Up! (1-800-Stamp-Up) and ask them to add it for you. They’re very helpful and will get it done quickly!  OR….
  2. If your order was over the $50 threshold but under $150, then…you’ll forfeit that $10 ordering gift and rewards – this is the Bummer Option – and I REALLY don’t want to do this, SO please remember to add my Current Host Code.

Stampin’ Up! Inked & Tiled for The Card Concepts

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. Here we are halfway through the week already. I hope everyone is having a good week.

It’s time for an inspiration challenge from The Card Concepts We have 2 inspiration photos this week and you can choose whichever photo you prefer, or you could create two separate cards, one for each photo! The inspiration photo 195a is Floral Spring and photo 195b is Garden Birds. Here is my card inspired by the photo.

Stampin' Up! Inked & Tiled Friendship 1 creativestampiungdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Inked & Tiled Cling Stamp Set along with the Inked Botanical 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper, Basic Borders Dies and Stylish Shapes Dies for my Clean and Layered Card. I was inspired by photo 195a, Floral Spring. I just love spring flowers.

I hope you will take a moment to visit The Card Concepts and join us for our challenge 195a or 195b.  How are you inspired by the photos?

Stampin' Up! Inked & Tiled Friendship 2 creativestampiungdesigns.com

I started by cutting a panel of Basic Whtie and Calypso Coral cardstock using the Basic Borders Dies. On the panel of Basic White, I stamped the leaf image from the Inked & Tiled stamp set in Lost Lagoon Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper. I stamped the large flower image from the Inked & Tiled stamp set over the leaf image. I inked up the stamp using my Calypso Coral and Lost Lagoon Stampin’ Write Markers. I stamped the small flower image from the Inked & Tiled stamp set on the stem of the large flower image. I inked up the stamp using the Calypso Coral and Lost Lagoon Stampin’ Write Markers.

Stampin' Up! Inked & Tiled Friendship 3 creativestampiungdesigns.com

I adhered a panel of Inked Botanical DSP to the Lost Lagoon card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the Basic Whtie die cut panel to the Calypso Coral die cut panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Inked & Tiled Friendship 4 creativestampiungdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic Whtie, I stamped the sentiment from the Inked & Tiled stamp set in Lost Lagoon Ink. I stamped the leaf image from the Inked & Tiled stamp set in Lost Lagoon Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper, over the sentiment. I cut the sentiment out using the Stylish Shapes Dies. I adhered a piece of Lost Lagoon 1/4″ Bordered Ribbon to the card front using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the sentiment over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Festive Pearls to the sentiment and Brushed Brass Butterflies to the card front.

Stampin' Up! Inked & Tiled Friendship 5 creativestampiungdesigns.com

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Inked & Tiled stamp set in Lost Lagoon Ink on a panel of Basic Whtie. I stamped the leaf image from the Inked & Tiled stamp set in Lost Lagoon Ink, stamping off once on a piece of scrap paper, on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the large and small flower images from the Inked & Tiled stamp set over the leaf image. I inked up the stamp using my Calypso Coral and Lost Lagoon Stampin’ Write Markers. I adhered the Basic Whtie panel to a Pool Party mat then to the inside of the Lost Lagoon card base.

Stampin' Up! Inked & Tiled Friendship 6 creativestampiungdesigns.com

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic Whtie Medium Envelope. I stamped the leaves and floral images from the Inked & Tiled stamp set on the envelope front the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of Inked Botanical DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin' Up! Fun On Wheels 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I couldn’t wait to use the new Stampin’ Up! Fun On Wheels Bundle along with the Stripes & Splatters 3D Embossing Folder for my card today. This one will be for my husband. He likes taking his bike and riding all around town with it.

Stampin' Up! Fun On Wheels 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by embossing a Boho Blue card front using the Stripes & Splatters 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the embossed panel to a Boho Blue card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Fun On Wheels 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the 3 panels of Basic White, I stamped the road map image from the Stampin’ Up! Fun On Wheels Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I adhered the 3 stamped panels to 3 Pecan Pie mats using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered 2 of the layered panel to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the 3rd layered panel in the center using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I cut the bike die cut from a panel of Real Red using the Fun On Wheels Dies.

I adhered the Basic Whtie panel to a Pecan Pie mat then to the inside of the Boho Blue card base.

Stampin’ Up! Vertical Blooms Petal Patterns

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend? It’s been a bit crazy here at my house. Between getting paper shares cut and shipped out, painting, moving furniture around and trying to find time to make some cards. The next couple weeks are going to be very hectic. We’re getting new windows in a couple rooms tomorrow, then we have to get everything out of the rooms for the floors to be refinished. My husband ripped the carpet out of a couple of the bedrooms and we have hardwood floors, so they are coming to sand and refinish them. It will all look beautiful when it’s done, but until then, my house is going to be upside down.

I played with some new items for today’s card. A new stamp set, new dies, new embossing folder and new colors. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Vertical Blooms 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Vertical Blooms Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Stampin’ Up! Go To Greetings Cling Stamp Set, Petal Patterns Dies and Exposed Brick 3D Embossing Folder for my card today.

Stampin' Up! Vertical Blooms 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by embossing a Pool Party card front using the Exposed Brick 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the embossed panel to a Pool Party card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Vertical Blooms 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

I cut panels of Azure Afternoon and Lemon Lolly cardstock using the Petal Patterns Dies. I adhered them together lining up the flowers. I cut 2 rows of flowers off using Paper Snips. I adhered the layered die to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Vertical Blooms 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a strip of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Vertical Blooms stamp set in Azure Afternoon Ink. I adhered the sentiment to the side of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Adhesive-Backed Solid Gems to the card front.

Stampin' Up! Vertical Blooms 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Go To Greetings set in Azure Afternoon Ink on a panel of Basic White. I stamped the stem/leave image from the Vertical Blooms stamp set on the bottom of the panel in Pool Party Ink. I stamped the flower image from the Vertical Blooms stamp set in Lemon Lolly Ink on the stems. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Pool Party mat then to the inside of the Pool Party card base.

Stampin' Up! Vertical Blooms 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the stem/leave images from the Vertical Blooms stamp set in Pool Party Ink on the envelope front and flap. I stamped the flower images from the Vertical Blooms stamp set in Azure Afternoon and Lemon Lolly Inks on the stems.

In response to changing policies at Stampin’ Up – I’m adjusting my Ordering Gift policy as well.  I’m having to get a little more tough on the adding of Host codes when you place your order thru my Online Store.

Not to worry – you’re still going to get that $10 ordering gift for orders of $50 (before shipping & tax) or greater.  And the gift is still any 1 SU! product up to that $10 value – which includes some of our fun Host Sets!

But – if you DO NOT use the Host code for your orders of less than $150 (this is the RETAIL total before Shipping & Handling), then you’ll have two options:

  1. You’ll need to call Stampin’ Up! (1-800-Stamp-Up) and ask them to add it for you. They’re very helpful and will get it done quickly!  OR….
  2. If your order was over the $50 threshold but under $150, then…you’ll forfeit that $10 ordering gift and rewards – this is the Bummer Option – and I REALLY don’t want to do this, SO please remember to add my Current Host Code.

Stampin’ Up! Crafting With You for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends it’s Cinco de Mayo!!! Welcome to my fun fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Is anyone making plans for the weekend 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 is my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Crafting With You Easel 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the new Stampin’ Up! Crafting With You Bundle along with the Stampin’ Up! Lasting Joy Photopolymer Stamp Set and Bright & Beautiful 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my easel card today.

I played along with The Paper Players Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge 638. I went right down the center with layers, die cuts and fun fold.

The design on the front of my card is from Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge 413.

Stampin' Up! Crafting With You Easel 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by scoring & folding the Pool Party card base as listed below. I adhered the 1 1/4″ top of the card base together using Multipurpose Liquid Glue to make a book fold card. The other fold will act as the easel. I adhered a panel of Bright & Beautiful DSP to a Lost Lagoon mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered a smaller panel of Bright & Beautiful DSP to a smaller Lost Lagoon mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the smaller layered panel to the top of the card base (that I adhered together) using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Crafting With You Easel 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

I cut a panel of Bubble Bath cardstock using the 2nd largest square from the Stylish Shapes Dies. I embossed the panel using the Basics 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the embossed panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the strip of Bubble Bath cardstock to the strip of Pool Party cardstock using Glue Dots. I adhered the strips just under the layered square using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Crafting With You Easel 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the basket image from the Stampin’ Up! Crafting With You Photopolymer Stamp Set in Crumb Cake Ink. I stamped the yarn image from the Crafting With You in Lost Lagoon and Pool Party Inks. I cut the images out using the Crafting With You Dies. I adhered the basket to the embossed panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered 1 of the yarn images behind the basket using Glue Dots and the other at the bottom of the basket using Stampin’ Dimensionals. Using the smallest die from the Countryside Corners Dies I cut the banner from the Basic White panel. I stamped the sentiment from the Lasting Joy stamp set in Lost Lagoon Ink on the banner. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using a Glue Dot and Stampin’ Dimensional. I cut the scissor die from the Crafting With You Dies from a panel of Silver Foil paper and Lost Lagoon. I cut the handles off the Lost Lagoon scissors and adhered them to the Silver Foil scissors. I adhered the scissors together with a Glue Dot and added a silver Festive Pearl in the center. I adhered the scissors to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the card front to the bottom of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Crafting With You Easel 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside, I stamped the large and small flower images from the Crafting With You in the corners of the Basic Whtie panel. I inked up the stamp with Bubble Bath Ink, then used my Lost Lagoon Stampin’ Write Marker to color the leaves. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Lost Lagoon mat then to the inside of the Pool Party card base. I stamped the sentiment from the Crafting With You stamp set in Lost Lagoon Ink on a panel of Basic Whtie. I cut the sentiment out using the hoop die from the Crafting With You Dies. I cut another hoop using the Crafting With You Dies from a panel of Lost Lagoon cardstock. I adhered Stampin’ Dimensionals.to the back to hold the 2 parts together. I sniped off the top of the hoop using my Paper Snips. I adhered the sentiment to the center using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the sentiment to the bottom of the panel. This will act as the easel stop. I added a few Festive Pearls to the sentiment.

Stampin' Up! Crafting With You Easel 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the yarn and flower images from the Crafting With You stamp set on the envelope front using Bubble Bath, Lost Lagoon and Pool Party Inks. I adhered a panel of Bright & Beautiful DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Wild & Sweet Masculine Card

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. I hope you are all having a wonderful week. We’re halfway through the week already.

Today’s card was a last-minute card that I added to our Stamp Camp Card Class last night. We kicked off the new catalog with a scavenger hunt where the ladies won some prize patrol for finishing it. We then made some masculine cards. My upline Jaimie is doing a weekly sketch challenge with us again and her sketch came in just in time for an idea for a card. Here’s my card that was inspired from her sketch.

Stampin' Up! Wild & Sweet 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Wild & Sweet Cling Stamp Set, Stampin’ Up! Happy Labels Photopolymer Stamp Set, Stampin’ Up! In The Moment Cling Stamp Set along with the Timber 3D Embossing Folder and Stylish Shapes Dies for my card today.

This was her sketch for us this week.

Stampin' Up! Wild & Sweet 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by embossing a panel of Basic White using the Timber 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the embossed panel to a Basic Black mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the layered panel to a Basic White Thick card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Wild & Sweet 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White, I stamped the panda image from the Wild & Sweet stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I cut the image out using the largest circle from the Stylish Shapes Dies. I colored just the leaves of the image using the Lemon Lime Twist Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the image to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Wild & Sweet 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a strip of Basic Black cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Happy Labels stamp set in Versamark Ink. I sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder and set it using the Heat Tool. I cut the ends of using the Banner Pick A Punch. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Classic Matte Dots to the card front.

Stampin' Up! Wild & Sweet 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the In The Moment stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Basic White. I stamped part of the panda image from the Wild & Sweet stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom of the panel. I colored the leaves using Lemon Lime Twist Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Basic Black mat then to the inside of the Basic White Thick card base.

Stampin' Up! Wild & Sweet 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the panda image from the Wild & Sweet stamp set on the envelope front in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the leaves using my Lemon Lime Twist Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped part of the tree image from the Wild & Sweet stamp set on the envelope flap in Tuxedo Black Ink.

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

Use this host code when placing an order with me. When you order $50 or greater you will receive a free gift from me! If your order is over $150, please do not use this code, but you’ll still get the free gift. The free gift is your choice of any 1 item valued up to $10.00 from the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog or the January-April 2023 Mini Catalog!  Unfortunately, packs of cardstock are no longer an option for a free gift.

*********************************************************************************************************

In response to changing policies at Stampin’ Up – I’m adjusting my Ordering Gift policy as well.  I’m having to get a little more tough on the adding of Host codes when you place your order thru my Online Store.

Not to worry – you’re still going to get that $10 ordering gift for orders of $50 (before shipping & tax) or greater.  And the gift is still any 1 SU! product up to that $10 value – which includes some of our fun Host Sets!

But – if you DO NOT use the Host code for your orders of less than $150 (this is the RETAIL total before Shipping & Handling), then you’ll have two options:

  1. You’ll need to call Stampin’ Up! (1-800-Stamp-Up) and ask them to add it for you. They’re very helpful and will get it done quickly!  OR….
  2. If your order was over the $50 threshold but under $150, then…you’ll forfeit that $10 ordering gift and rewards – this is the Bummer Option – and I REALLY don’t want to do this, SO please remember to add my Current Host Code.
