Stampin’ Up! Garden Birdhouses for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends. Welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Does anyone have plans for the weekend? I’ll be working all day Saturday depending on the amount of snow we get. Once we sell out of shovels and salt sometimes, they will close the store so that everyone can get home safely. Fortunately, I walk to work, so I don’t have to worry too much about travel.

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! Garden Birdhouses Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the New Horizons 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by scoring and folding the Pale Papaya card base as listed below. I adhered the card base together using Tear & Tape between the 5 1/8″ & 5 1/2″ score lines. I cut the panel of New Horizons DSP keeping them in order, at 1 5/8″, then 1 3/8″, then 1 5/8″ that left a 1 3/8″ panel. I placed the panels together on my Grid Paper and stamped the birdhouse pole from the Garden Birdhouses stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the right 1 5/8″ panel. I colored the pole in using my Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Marker. I stamped the tree image from the Stampin’ Up! On The Horizon Cling Stamp Set in Evening Evergreen Ink along one of the hills on the DSP. Starting with the left panel, I adhered the panels to the Pale Papaya card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered a scrap of In Good Taste DSP to a scrap of Basic Whtie cardstock and stamped the birdhouse image from the Garden Birdhouses stamp set on the DSP in Early Espresso Ink. I fussy cut the birdhouse using my Paper Snips. I adhered the birdhouse to the right panel of DSP on the card base in the center on the stamped pole image using Stampin’ Dimensionals on the right side of the birdhouse. I adhered the 2 – 1/4″ strips of Soft Succulent cardstock to the thin edges of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I added a few Pebbles Enamel Shapes to the card front along the path.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Garden Birdhouses stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink. I cut the sentiment out using my Ornate Frames Dies and adhered it to the center card front panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a Brushed Brass Butterfly to the sentiment.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Garden Birdhouses stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink on the Basic White panel. I stamped the flower images from the Garden Birdhouses stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to the Soft Succulent mat and then to the inside of the Pale Papaya card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the birdhouse image and pole from the Garden Birdhouses stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the envelope front. I stamped the grass and flower images from the Garden Birdhouses stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink below the birdhouse. I adhered a panel of the New Horizon 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. I hope you will CASE this card and please feel free to post it in the comments of my Facebook page under the post. I’d love to see your take on the card. 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! Calming Camellia Whitewashed CAS

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends. I hope you week has started out productive. We’re back to a full week again, no holidays for a bit.

Today’s card one of my team members Mary Deatherage made on a Facebook live video on Saturday. I forgot how much I like this technique and haven’t done it in a while. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Calming Camellia Cling Stamp Set for my card today. You can earn this set free by hosting a qualifying party or placing a qualifying order. I’d be happy to set up a host code for you and your friends. Interested? Ask me how. Contact me at creativestampingdesigns@gmail.com.

I played along with Double “D” Challenge ‘Blue & White’

I also played along with Aud Sentiments Challenge #290 ‘Anything Goes + A Sentiment

I started by stamping the large floral image from the Calming Camellia stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on a Misty Moonlight card front. I stamped the swirl image from the Calming Camellia stamp set in Night of Navy Ink below the floral image where I planned on putting the sentiment.

Using my Blender Pen, I added White Craft Ink just to the flower image making sure not to color the leaves. I adhered the card front to a Misty Moonlight card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Calming Camellia stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink and fussy cut it using my Paper Snips. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Calming Camellia stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the large floral image from the Calming Camellia stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink, stamping off on scrap paper twice, over the sentiment. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Misty Moonlight mat and then to the inside of the Misty Moonlight card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the large floral image from the Calming Camellia stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink on the envelope front and the swirl image 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!!

Stampin’ Up! Paradise Palms Special Moments CAS

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends. Hope your week has started out productive.

I was so happy with my card for today and surprisingly I only used Stamps, Ink and Paper. Back to the basics. I just love playing with the Blending Brushes and mixing colors. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Paradise Palms Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Stampin’ Up! Sale-a-bration Special Moments Photopolymer Stamp Set for my card today.

I started with a Basic White card front. I used Post-It Note Tape and taped off the sides of the panel to make a border. Starting at the bottom using my Blending Brushes I started adding color. I used Daffodil Delight, Mango Melody, Flirty Flamingo, Highland Heather and Misty Moonlight Inks, blending them all as I moved up the panel.

Once I had the colors the way I wanted them I started stamping the palm tree images and the grass image from the Paradise Palms stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I removed the tape from the 4 sides and adhered the card front to a Basic Black mat and then to a Basic White Thick card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Special Moments stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I adhered the sentiment to a Basic Black mat and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Paradise Palms stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the palm tree and grass images from the Paradise Palm stamp set on the bottom of the panel in Tuxedo Black Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Basic Black mat and then to the inside of the Basic White Thick card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic Whtie Medium Envelope. I stamped the grass and palm tree images from the Paradise Palms stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the Sunshine & Rainbows Sale-a-bration Designer Series Paper 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! Driving By Birthday

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone’s weekend going? I worked yesterday and I’m planning on staying in today. It’s cold here in NJ. I don’t mind it a little cold, but not when it makes my bones cold lol.

I played with one of the Sale-a-bration sets for my card today. It’s a set that I looked at when I first got the brochure and said “what am I going to do with that”. After playing a little with it, I like it, I have many other ideas I just have to get on a card now. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Driving By Cling Stamp Set along with the Brights 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my card today.

My colors were inspired by the Color Throwdown Challenge #675.

I started by adhering Granny Apple Green and Pacific Point panels of the Brights DSP to a Smoky Slate card base. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the car image from the Driving By stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image in using my Light Basic Black, Daffodil Delight and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers. I colored the balloons in using my Wink of Stella brush and my Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green and Pacific Point stamp pads.

I stamped the sentiment from the Driving By stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink above the card image. I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Nut About Squirrels Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink behind the card.

I adhered the Basic White panel to a Smoky Slate mat and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Driving By stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the car image from the Driving By stamp set on the bottom of the panel in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image in using my Basic Black, Granny Apple Green and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers. I colored the balloons the same as I did for the card front. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Smoky Slate mat and then to the inside of the Smoky Slate card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of the Brights DSP to the envelope front and a panel to the envelope flap. I stamped just the balloons from the Driving By stamp set up the one side of the envelope and colored them the same as I did on the card.

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

Stampin’ Up! Blessings of Home Birthday

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. We’re halfway through the week already and almost halfway through the month. Another month flying by.

I have a quick card for you today. When I saw the colors for this challenge, I knew exactly what I wanted to do. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Blessings of Home Cling Stamp Set along with the Stampin’ Up! Calming Camellia Cling Sale-a-bration Host Stamp Set and the Heart & Home Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I joined in with Seize the Birthday color Challenge #229.

I started by adhering a panel of the Heart & Home DSP to a Basic Gray card base.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the large floral image from the Blessings of Home stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink. I colored just the larger flowers in using my Balmy Blue Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Balmy Blue mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Balmy Blue cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Calming Camellia stamp set in Versamark Ink. I immediately sprinkled it with my Silver Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I adhered a piece of Silver Simply Elegant Trim to the card front using Stampin’ Seal and then the sentiment over the trim using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Rhinestones Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Calming Camellia stamp set in Basic Gray Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the smaller floral image from the Blessings of Home stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink on the bottom of the panel. I colored just the larger flower using my Balmy Blue Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Balmy Blue mat and then to the inside if the Basic Gray card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the smaller floral image from the Blessings of Home stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink on the envelope front and colored it using my Balmy Blue Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of the Heart & Home 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! Calming Camellia Biggest Wish

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend? I actually impressed myself yesterday. Since my husband had started undecorating and packing up Christmas while I was at work on Saturday, I finished most of it Saturday night. Sunday morning, I got up and finished packing up anything else I had to do. By 10:30am I was completely finished packing up Christmas, had everything back in my attic and I rearranged my furniture and vacuumed. I had the rest of the day for me, well kind of.

Today I have a mix of Sale-a-bration, 2021-2022 Annual Catalog and January-June 2022 Mini Catalog for you. I was using a little of everything to make a CAS card. Here’s my card for today.

I used the gorgeous Stampin’ Up! Calming Camellia Cling Stamp Set along with the Stampin’ Up! Biggest Wish Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Artfully Composed Designer Series Paper for my card today.

My Theme is from the Inspire. Create. Birthday Challenge #107.

My colors are from the Paper Players Challenge #573. I used White as my neutral color.

My design is from Sunday Stamps Challenge #273.

I started by adhering a panel of the Artfully Composed DSP to a Pale Papaya card base. Using my Stamparatus, I stamped the large sentiment from the Biggest Wish stamp set in Calypso Coral Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the 1st 2 sentiments then moved the sentiment to the bottom and stamped the bottom 2.

I stamped the large floral image and the swirl image from the Calming Camellia stamp set in Pale Papaya Ink over the sentiments. I cut the panel in half at 2 3/8″. I adhered both panels to a Just Jade mat using Stampin’ Seal. I stamped the script sentiment from the Biggest Wish stamp set in Just Jade Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock and fussy cut it using my Paper Snips.

I adhered the script sentiment using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Calming Camellia stamp set in Just Jade Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the large floral image from the Calming Camellia stamp set in Pale Papaya Ink on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic Whtie panel to a Just Jade mat and then to the inside of the Pale Papaya card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the large floral image from the Calming Camellia stamp set on the envelope front in Pale Papaya Ink. I stamped the sentiment from the Calming Camellia stamp set in Just Jade Ink over the image. I adhered a panel of Artfully Composed 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. Just a reminder that today is the last day to take advantage of my Double Creative Stamping Designs Rewards. It ends tonight at 11:00pm ET. If you haven’t gotten your order in yet, there’s still time. This is a great time to get those rewards built up. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Friendly Hello for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends! Welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. I hope everyone is doing well today. If you are hopping over from Akiko Sudano’s blog, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we have a Sketch Challenge and it’s my favorite kind!!! I can’t wait to see what everyone has created this week. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects. Here is my card using this week’s Sketch.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Sale-a-bration Friendly Hello Bundle for my card today.

Here is our sketch for this week.

I started by adhering a panel of the Friendly Hello Designer Series Paper to a Fresh Freesia card base.

I cut another panel of the Friendly Hello DSP using the 4th largest rectangle from the Stitched Rectangle Dies. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Friendly Hello Photopolymer Stamp Set in Shaded Spruce Ink. I cut the sentiment out using the 2nd largest long Stitched Rectangle Die. I adhered the sentiment to a Fresh Freesia mat using Stampin’ Seal.

I adhered the Silver Trim from the Simply Elegant Trim to the panel of DSP using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered sentiment over the trim using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and added a few Iridescent Rhinestones Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Celebrating You Cling Stamp Set in Shaded Spruce Ink on a Basic White panel. I adhered 2 strips of the Friendly Hello DSP to either side of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Fresh Freesia mat and then to the inside of the Fresh Freesia card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the small flower from the Friendly Hello stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink on the bottom front of the envelope. I adhered a panel of the Friendly Hello 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! Amazing Silhouettes CAS Birthday

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. I hope you all had a wonderful long weekend and are ready to take on a new year.

Today I have a sneak peek of a couple new sets for you using just Stamp, Ink and Paper. One you can buy and one you can earn for FREE. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Amazing Silhouettes Cling Stamp Set, which will be available for purchase starting tomorrow January 4th. I also used the Stampin’ Up! Special Moments Photopolymer Stamp Set, which is a FREE Sale-a-bration item you can earn starting tomorrow January 4th.

I started by using my Simply Scored Scoring Tool to make the background panel of Misty Moonlight cardstock. I put the cardstock in on an angle and using my Stylus, I scored the panel of cardstock every 1/2″. I turned the cardstock and scored again to make the diamond embossed panel, scoring every 1/2″. I flipped the cardstock so the raised side was up and adhered it to a Misty Moonlight card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the butterfly silhouette image from the Amazing Silhouettes stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink. I stamped the sentiment from the Special Moments stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink on the bottom of the panel.

I adhered the artwork to a Misty Moonlight mat and then to a Basic White mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Special Moments stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the butterfly silhouette image from the Amazing Silhouettes stamp set next to the sentiment. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Misty Moonlight mat and then to the inside of the Misty Moonlight card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the butterfly silhouette image from the Amazing Silhouettes stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the 2020-2022 In-Color 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! Artistically Inked for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. Happy New Year’s Eve!!! Does anyone have any plans for tonight or tomorrow? It’ll be a quiet night at my house.

I used a set today from the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog. Sometimes I forget about the annual catalog when the new catalogs are available. Here’s my card for today,

I used the Stampin’ Up! Artistically Inked Cling Stamp Set along with the Expressions In Ink Specialty Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by stamping the sentiment from the Artistically Inked stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the bottom of a Pale Papaya card front. I stamped the small floral image from the Artistically Inked stamp set in Pale Papaya Ink around the sentiment. I embossed the panel using the new Stripes & Splatters 3D Embossing Folder (available January 4, 2022).

I took a panel of Expressions In Ink DSP and scored, cut & folded it as in the diagram below. I adhered the cut & folded panel to the Pale Papaya card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue along the top edge, left side and the small right side.

I wrapped a piece of the Old Olive/Pretty Peacock 3/8″ Reversible Ribbon around the top of the panel and tied a small bow. I adhered the card front to a Pale Papaya card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Gilded Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Artistically Inked stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the small flower image from the Artistically Inked stamp set in Pale Papaya Ink on either side of the sentiment. I stamped the leaf images in Old Olive Ink on the flowers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Pale Papaya mat and then to the inside of the Pale Papaya card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic Whtie Medium Envelope. I stamped the small flower image from the Artistically Inked stamp set in Pale Papaya Ink on the envelope front and the leaves in Old Olive Ink. I adhered a panel of Expressions In Ink 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! Eden’s Garden Paneled Hello

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. We’re halfway through the week and on our way to a New Year!!! How does everyone celebrate bringing in the New Year? It’ll be a quiet one at my house again I believe.

Today’s card features the gorgeous Ever Eden Specialty Designer Series Paper that will be going away on Monday January 3,2022, that’s in just 5 more days. You might want to grab a pack or 2 (or 3) if you haven’t gotten yours yet. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Eden’s Garden Cling Stamp Set along with the Ever Eden DSP for my card today.

I started by cutting and adhering 3 equal strips of the Ever Eden DSP and adhering them to an Evening Evergreen card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, so I had a little wiggle room. I adhered the panel to a gold mat from the Brushed Metallic Paper.

I wrapped a piece of Evening Evergreen 3/8″ Open Weave Ribbon around the layered panel and tied a small bow. I adhered the layered panel to an Evening Evergreen card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the floral image from the Eden’s Garden stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink. I stamped the sentiment from the Eden’s Garden stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink over the floral image. I cut the image our using my Layering Circle Dies and adhered it over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Garden Gems, which will also be going away January 3, 2022, to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the floral image from the Eden’s Garden stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the sentiment from the Eden’s Garden stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink on top of the floral image. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Soft Succulent mat and then to the inside of the Evening Evergreen card base.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the floral image from the Eden’s Garden stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the Ever Eden 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!!
