Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tropical

Good morning Tuesday my stamping friends.  How is everyone doing today?

Yesterday I was telling you about cleaning my craft table off and finding lots of bits and pieces of cards that I started, but never did anything with.  Well today’s card uses some more of the pieces I found lying around, so I thought I’d put them together to make another card for you.  Here’s what I came up with.

I had the frame I had made using the Stampin’ Up! Swirly Frames Photopolymer Stamp Set which I stamped in Early Espresso Ink on a Soft Suede panel and cut out using the Rectangle Stitched Dies.  I also had a beach scene which was created on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I had stamped the sand from the Stampin’ Up! High Tide Photopolymer Stamp Set in Crumb Cake Ink.  I stamped the water from the High Tide stamp set in Bermuda Bay and Coastal Cabana Inks.  I sponged the sky using my Stamping Sponge, in Pool Party Ink.  The birds from the Sailing Home Cling Stamp Set were stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the sky.  I adhered the beach scene to the back of the frame using Snail.  On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the palm tree image from the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tropical Cling Stamp Set which I colored using my Pear Pizzazz and Soft Suede Stampin’ Write Markers.  I cut the image out using my In The Tropics Dies.

I adhered the palm trees to the artwork using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, letting the palms hang over the frame a little.  I adhered a panel of Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper to a Thick Whisper White card base using Snail.  I adhered the framed artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the top of the sentiment from the Timeless Tropical stamp set in Early Espresso Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using my Classic Label Punch and adhered it to the artwork using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a pineapple from the Tropical Oasis Trinkets to the artwork using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the bottom of the sentiment from the Timeless Tropical stamp set in Early Espresso Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the palm tree image from the Timeless Tropical stamp set, which I colored using my Pear Pizzazz and Soft Suede Stampin’ Write Markers, on the bottom of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Soft Suede mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the palm tree image from the Timeless Tropical stamp set, which I colored using my Pear Pizzazz and Soft Suede Stampin’ Write Markers, on the envelope front.   I adhered a panel of the Tropical Oasis 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 to look around your craft table for card pieces that you started and never finished.  You’d be surprised what you can come up with from pieces just sitting around. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Lacey Wild Rose

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s weekend?  I sure hope everyone staying healthy.  Last week I got a new light for my crafting table, which meant I had to rearrange and clean my table.  While doing so, I came across bits and pieces of cards that I had lying around and never did anything with.  I decided to put some of them to good use and create a card from what I had lying around.  Here’s what I came up with using some of the pieces.

I had an Old Olive panel which I had embossed using the new Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered a Whisper White panel which I had cut using the Stitched Lace Die, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I wrapped a piece of Seaside Spray 1/4″ Metallic Ribbon around the card front and tied a bow.  I adhered the card front to an Old Olive card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! To A Wild Rose Photopolymer Stamp Set in Seaside Spray Ink.  I cut the panel out using the Stitched Nested Labels Dies and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I had a rose image from To A Wild Rose stamp set which I had stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored using my Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I also had some leaves from To A Wild Rose stamp set which I had stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored using my Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers.  The images were all cut using the Wild Rose Dies.  I adhered the die cut rose to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added the leaves under my rose using Glue Dots.  I added a few  Seaside Spray 2019-2021 In- Color Faceted Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from To A Wild Rose stamp set in Seaside Spray Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the rose image from To A Wild Rose stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the bottom of the panel.   I stamped the leaf image from To A Wild Rose stamp set by the rose and on the top of the panel.  I colored the images in using my Old Olive and Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to an Old Olive mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Old Olive card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the rose and leaf images from To A Wild Rose stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink to the envelope front and envelope flap.  I colored the images in using my Old Olive and Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try.  Check your craft area, I bet you may have bits and pieces of cards you started and didn’t do anything with.  See what you can come up with.  We all have a lot of extra time since we’re not supposed to be going out, so it’s the perfect time to clean up our area.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Forever Blossoms

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends.  How has everyone’s weekend been so far?  I had to work yesterday, which was supposed to be a partial day ended up being all day.  So much for people having to stay home.  It was just a crazy busy day.  I’m home today and hoping to finish up some of my spring cleaning.

Today’s card can be used for a lot of different occasions.  I left the sentiment pretty general so I can use it for whatever I need.  Here’s today’s card.

My design today is from Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #429.  Here is their sketch.

My colors are from Color Throwdown Challenge #587.  Here is their color pallet.

I started by adhering a panel of the Neutrals 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to the front of a Thick Whisper White card base using Snail.  Using my Stitched Shapes Dies, I cut 3 circles, one in Mint Macaron, one in Rococo Rose and one in Smoky Slate.  I embossed the circles using my Scripty 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the circles to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue overlapping the DSP halfway.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the large floral image from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Blossoms Cling Stamp Set in Smoky Slate Ink.  I colored the image in using my Mint Macaron and Rococo Rose Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the image out using the matching Cherry Blossoms Dies.  Using Stampin’ Dimensionals, I adhered the floral image to the card front on top of the circles.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Honey Bee Cling Stamp Set in Smoky Slate Ink to the left of the artwork.  I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Honey Bee stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink in the center of a  Whisper White panel.  I stamped the flower, leaves and flower bud images from the Forever Blossoms stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink on the panel.  I colored the images in using my Mint Macaron and Rococo Rose Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Rococo Rose mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the flower, leaves and flower bud images from the Forever Blossoms stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink on the envelope front.  I colored the images in using my Mint Macaron and Rococo Rose Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of the Neutrals 6 X 6 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! Ornate Smile Daisy Lane for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday.  How was everyone’s week?  Is anyone planning anything for the weekend?  I’m working a partial day tomorrow and getting my spring cleaning done.

For today’s card I made a fold I haven’t done in a while and forgot how much I like it.  I do have detailed pictures and instructions for you since it is a little hard to explain.  Here’s today’s card.

I’ve combined the Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper with the Stampin’ Up! Daisy Lane Cling Stamp Set for my card.  Click HERE for a  template which I got from Lisa Curcio, to do the braid on the edge.

I lined the template up with the edge of my card and cut carefully on the lines all the way down the edge so it looks like photo above.  When you open your card base it looks like the 2nd picture above.

Starting at the bottom, you want to fold down the bottom  cut piece and carefully cut it off using your Paper Snips as shown above and set it aside (you will need it later).  Fold the next cut piece down and tuck it behind the point below it.  Continue doing this all the way to the top cut piece.

When you finish folding and tucking all the pieces down it will look like the 1st picture above.  Take the small piece that you cut off and adhere it to the top of the card, using Glue Dots, lining it up and tucking it under the top point so it looks like the middle photo above.  When you fold your card back in half it will look like the end photo.

I adhered a panel of the Ornate Garden Specialty DSP to the card front using Snail.  On a small panel of Whisper White card stock I stamped the stem image from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Old Olive Ink.  I stamped the sentiment from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Early Espresso Ink across the stem.  I cut the image out using my Rectangle Stitched Dies.

On a small piece of Vellum card stock I stamped the medium daisy image from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Terracotta Tile Ink twice.  I cut the images out using the Medium Daisy Punch.  I adhered the 2 cut daisies together using a Glue dot and adhered it to the stem image using a Glue Dot.  I added a Perennial Essence Floral Center to the daisy.  I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I tied a small bow made from the Terracotta Tile 1/4″ Ornate Garden Ribbon and adhered it to the bottom of the stem using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Early Espresso Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the stem image from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Old Olive Ink, stamping off once, on the side of the panel.  I stamped the small daisy image from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Terracotta Tile Ink, stamping off once, to the top of the stem.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Terracotta Tile mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Old Olive card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the stem image from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Old Olive Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped the small daisy image from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Terracotta Tile Ink on the top of the stem.  I adhered a panel of the Ornate Garden 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!!

Stampin’ Up! Ornate Style Garden

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends and Happy April Fools Day!!  How is everyone doing today?  Today is the day we’ve been waiting for.  The Ornate Garden Suite is available starting today!! YAY!!

For today’s card I decided to show off some of the products from the suite.  Ok, my whole card is made with products from the suite.  Here’s today’s card.

My design is from Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #362.  Here is their sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of the gorgeous Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper to a Mint Macaron mat using Snail.  I adhered the matted DSP to a Terracotta Tile card base using Snail.  I cut the edge of a small Terracotta Tile panel using the Ornate Borders Dies and then embossed it using the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder.

I adhered the embossed panel to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  On a small Whisper White panel I stamped the daisy image from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Style Cling Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink.  I cut the image out using the Stitched Rectangle Dies.  I colored the image in using my Mint Macaron and Light Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the artwork to the embossed panel using Stampn’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Mint Macaron cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Thanks Photopolymer Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink.  I cut the image out using my Stitched Rectangle Dies.  There isn’t a die long enough for the sentiment so I had to make my own.  I cut the sentiment out only going part way through using my die cutting machine.  I then moved the die over matching up the stitches and cut from the other side making sure to only go part way through again.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Gilded Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Ornate Thanks stamp set in Early Espresso Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the daisy from the Ornate Style stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the bottom of the panel and colored it in using my Mint Macaron and Light Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the scroll image from the Ornate Style stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the  top corner of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Mint Macaron mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Terracotta Tile card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the daisy image from the Ornate Style stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the bottom front of the envelope and colored it in using my Mint Macaron and Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the scroll from the Ornate Style stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the top corner of the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of Ornate Garden 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!!

Stampin’ Up! Positive Thoughts

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Did you get a lot of things done that you’ve been putting off?

For today’s card I used a couple items from Sale-A-Bration that will be gone after tomorrow.  Here’s my card for today.

My design is from Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge #335.  Here is their sketch.

I started by embossing a Smoky Slate card front using the Stone 3D Embossing Folder.  This folder comes as a bundle with the Power of Hope stamp set and is available as a Sale-A-Bration item with a qualifying order.  I adhered a panel of Night of Navy cardstock to the edge of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I colored a small panel of the Sale-A-Bration Flowering Foils Specialty Designer Series Paper using my Light Night of Navy, Old Olive and Real Red Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut a flower out using the 2nd largest circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I adhered the artwork to the embossed card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, letting it over hang a little and trimmed off the edge using my Paper Snips.  Using the next size smaller circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies, I cut a panel of Whisper White cardstock and embossed it using the Layering Leaves 3D Embossing Folder.  I added some Silver Metallic Thread to the back of the stitched circle and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I stamped the butterfly image from the Stampin’ Up! Positive Thoughts Cling Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock and colored it in using my Light Daffodil Delight and Light Real Red Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the butterfly image out using the Nature Thoughts Dies, I also cut the tiny butterfly out from the Nature Thoughts Dies from a Silver Foil Sheet.  I adhered the butterfly to the embossed circle using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the top portion of the sentiment from the Positive Thoughts stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on a strip of Whisper White cardstock.  I made the sentiment into a banner using my Paper Snips and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and a Glue Dot.  I adhered the silver foil butterfly below the sentiment using Multipurpose Liquid  Glue.  I adhered the card front to a Night of Navy card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the bottom portion of the sentiment from the Positive Thoughts stamp set in Night of Navy Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the decorative image from the Positive Thoughts stamp set on the top and bottom of the panel in Night of Navy Ink.  I adhered 2 strips of the Flowering Foils Specialty DSP to either side of the panel using Snail.  I adhered 2 foil butterflies by the sentiment using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Smoky Slate mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Night of Navy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope .  I stamped the butterfly image from the Positive Thoughts stamp set across the bottom of the envelope front in Night of Navy Ink.  I adhered a panel of the Flowering Foils Specialty DSP to the envelope flap which I had colored using my Light Night of Navy, Old Olive and Real Red Stampin’ Blends Markers.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Don’t forget, tomorrow is the last day to earn FREE Sale-A-Bration items.  If there is anything you wanted, don’t wait any longer because they will be gone tomorrow night. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Dressed To Impress CAS

Good Saturday morning mu stamping friends.  How is your weekend going so far?  I have to work for a couple hours this morning.  We’re taking shifts so that no one is exposed for too long a time to the public.  They have set up what looks like an Ice Hockey penalty box for us and have marked the floor where customers have to stand to wait to be checked out.  Our owner/manager is doing everything to protect us and stay open at the same time.

I have a quick and easy CAS card for you today using the Stampin’ Up! Dressed To Impress Bundle.   Here’s today’s card.

My sketch is from Inspire.Create. Challenge #065.  Here is their sketch.

My colors were inspired by Color Throwdown Challenge #586.  Here are their colors.

I started by adhering a panel of the Best Dressed 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Gorgeous Grape card base using Snail.  I adhered a strip of the Best Dressed 6 X 6 DSP to a Gorgeous Grape mat using Snail and then to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a thin strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Dressed To Impress Photopolymer Stamp Set in Gorgeous Grape Ink.  Using my Banner Triple Punch I made a banner out of the strip and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the lipstick image from the Dressed To Impress stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the image in using my Dark Lovely Lipstick, Dark Petal Pink and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I added some Clear Wink of Stella to give it a little shimmer.  I cut the image out using my All Dressed Up Dies and adhered the image to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and a Glue Dot.  I added a few Gorgeous Grape Glitter Enamel Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Strong & Beautiful Cling Stamp Set in Gorgeous Grape Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the lipstick image from the Dressed To Impress stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the bottom of the panel and colored it in using my Dark Lovely Lipstick, Dark Petal Pink and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the panel to the inside of the Gorgeous Grape card base using Snail.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the lipstick image from the Dressed To Impress stamp set on the bottom of the envelope front.  I colored the images in using my Dark Lovely Lipstick, Dark Petal Pink and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of the Best Dressed 6 X 6 DSP 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!!
