Stampin’ Up Rooted In Nature Masculine Card

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers.  Is anyone making any fun plans for the weekend?  One more work day left in the week and then 2 off, for most.   I usually work on weekends, so I get 1 day off and I’m usually off Friday’s too.

For today’s card I made a masculine card using the Stampin’ Up Rooted In Nature bundle. I’m one who always struggles with masculine cards, they are a challenge for me.  Since I did come up with one, I played along with the Watercolor Wednesday Challenge #204.

Be sure to stop by Watercolor Wednesday and see what everyone had created.  Here is my card for the challenge.  Take a look.

I started with a Sahara Sand card front and adhered a panel of Nature’s Poem Designer Series Paper using Snail.  I then adhered it to a Soft Suede card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
Using my Triple Banner Punch, I made a banner from a smaller piece of Sahara Sand cardstock.  I also cut a banner from another piece of the Nature’s Poem DSP and adhered it to the Sahara Sand banner using Snail.  I wrapped a piece of the Crumb Cake Nature’s Twine around the top and tied a bow.

I adhered the banner to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals lining it up with the DSP on the card front.  I cut a couple small and large leaves out using my Big Shot and the Nature’s Roots Framelits Dies in Tranquil Tide cardstock.  I adhered them to the top of the banner by the bow using Snail and Stampin’ Dimensionals.  On a small piece of Sahara Sand cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Rooted In Nature stamp set in Tranquil Tide Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using my Big Shot and the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies Circle.  I adhered the sentiment to the banner using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
On the inside on a Very Vanilla panel I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Enjoy Life Photopolymer stamp set in Tranquil Tide Ink.  I stamped the Happy Birthday from the Stampin’ Up Hand Delivered Host stamp set below in Tranquil Tide Ink.  I stamped the larger leaf from Rooted In Nature stamp set, stamping off 3 times, over the sentiment.  I then adhered the Very Vanilla panel to the inside of the Soft Suede card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card, I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I stamped the leaf from Rooted In Nature stamp set in Tranquil Tide Ink, stamping off once, on the envelope front.  I adhered a piece of the Nature’s Poem DSP to the envelope flap.

By purchasing the Rooted In Nature Bundle did you know you can save 10%.  The bundle includes the Stampin’ Up Rooted In Nature Stamp Set and the Natures Roots Framelits Dies.  I don’t know about you, but I’m all about saving money.

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

Stampin’ Up Lemon Zest

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  How is your week going?

For today’s card I used another one of my favorites, Stampin’ Up Lemon Zest stamp set.  I did the masking technique for my card today.  Take a look.

I started with a Lemon Lime Twist card front and adhered a strip of the Gingham Gala 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper on the bottom portion.  I wrapped a piece of Lemon Lime Twist 1/4″ Organdy Ribbon (free Sale-A-Bration item with $50 purchase) around the bottom and tied a knot.  I adhered the card front to a Basic Black mat using Snail.

On a piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the cut fruit pieces from the Stampin’ Up Lemon Zest stamp set in Grapefruit Grove, Lemon Lime Twist, Mango Melody and Pineapple Punch.   I cut all the images out using the Layering Circles Framelits Dies that matched up with the image size.  I adhered the 4 slices to a Whisper White cardstock using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I stamped the whole lemon image on a piece of Whisper White cardstock in Pineapple Punch Ink and the leaf image in Lemon Lime Twist, stamping them both off once. I punched the lemon and leaves out using the Lemon Builder Punch.  I stamped the sentiment from the Lemon Zest stamp set in the center of the lemon in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.

I adhered the leaves to the back of the lemon using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Using Stampin’ Dimensionals I adhered the lemon to the center of the sliced images.  I adhered the artwork to the top portion of the Lemon Lime Twist card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue then adhered the card front to a Grapefruit Grove card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The inside of the card is where I used the masking technique.  I stamped the 1st fruit slice from the Lemon Zest stamp set in Pineapple Punch Ink in the top left corner.  I covered the image with a cut out Post-It note and stamped the Grapefruit Grove and Lemon Lime Twist images.  I then covered the Lemon Lime Twist image and stamped the Mango Melody image.  I stamped the sentiments from the same stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of the Whisper White panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Basic Black mat using Snail then to the Grapefruit Grove card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the front of the envelope with the Lemon Zest stamp set using the masking technique.  I adhered a piece of Gingham Gala 6 X 6 DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for checking out my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try.  The masking technique is a very easy and fun technique.  Happy stamping.

Stampin’ Up Dandelion Wishes Humming Along

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers.  We’re almost through the week.  After having 2 short weeks this one feels extra long to me.  I really think we should have 3 day work weeks and 4 day weekends all the time.

For today’s card I pulled out another set from the Annual Catalog called Dandelion Wishes.  Take a look

I started with  Thick Very Vanilla card base and adhered a panel of Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper to the front using Snail.  I took a small piece of Very Vanilla cardstock and stamped the triple dandelion image and the flying dandelion pieces image from the Stampin’ Up Dandelion Wishes stamp set in Pacific Point Ink.  I immediately sprinkled it with Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat set it using my Heat Tool.

I adhered the artwork to a Pacific Point panel using Snail.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Humming Along stamp set in Versamark Ink below the artwork.  I sprinkled it with my White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat set it using my Heat Tool.  I wrapped a piece of Very Vanilla 5/8″ Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon around the artwork and tied a bow.

I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I then added a couple Clear Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the dandelion image from the Dandelion Wishes stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink in the center of a Very Vanilla panel.  I stamped the sentiment with the Stampin’ Up Seasoned With Kindness stamp set over the dandelion image in Pacific Point Ink.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Pacific Point mat using Snail then to the Thick Very Vanilla card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I stamped the dandelion image from Dandelion Wishes stamp set on the envelope front.  I adhered a piece of Garden Impressions DSP to the envelope flap.

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

Stampin’ Up Seasoned With Kindness for CAS(E) This Sketch #303 and Fab Friday # 154

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  How is your week going?

For today’s card I used a Host Exclusive Stamp Set called Seasoned With Kindness.  I played along with 2 different challenges today.  Fab Friday color challenge # 154 and CAS(E) This Sketch challenge #303.  Please be sure to stop by the Fab Friday blog to see all the beautiful projects made and to play along.  Also, be sure to stop by the CAS(E) This Sketch challenge to see what everyone has made and to play along with them too.

Here is the Fab Friday Color Challenge # 154.  I have to admit, this was a real challenge for me.  These colors were a little difficult for me.

Here is the CAS(E) This Sketch Challenge # 303.

Here is what I came up with for the 2 challenges.  Take a look.

I started with a Highland Heather card front and adhered a panel of Tranquil Textures Designer Series Paper to it using Snail.  I adhered the card front to a Tranquil Tide card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped 2 of the plant images from the Stampin’ Up Seasoned With Kindness Host Exclusive stamp set.  I first stamped the outlines in Tranquil Tide Ink.  I then stamped the inside of the leaves in Lemon Lime Twist Ink and the inside of the flower in Highland Heather Ink.  I stamped the inside of the flower-pot in Pear Pizzazz Ink.  I did all the stamping using my Stamparatus.  It made lining everything up very easy. Using my Big Shot I cut the artwork out using the circle from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.

I adhered the circle to a small piece of Mint Macaron cardstock using Snail.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Easter Beauty stamp set in Tranquil Tide Ink around the bottom of the circle.  I stamped another plant image from the Seasoned With Kindness stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink along the bottom of the Mint Macaron panel.  I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I then took a piece of Whisper White Bakers Twine and colored it using my Pear Pizzazz Ink.  I tied a small bow and attached it to the flower pot using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the plant images from the Seasoned With Kindness stamp set along the bottom of a Whisper White panel the same way I stamped them on the card front.  I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set in Tranquil Tide Ink in the center of the panel and adhered it to a Highland Heather mat using Snail.  I then adhered it to the Tranquil Tide card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the plant images from the Seasoned With Kindness stamp set on the bottom front of the envelope.  I adhered a piece of Tranquil Textures 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.  To get this host exclusive stamp set you either must have a qualifying party  to earn this set or if you purchase $150 in product you can earn it.  Happy stamping!

I started with a piece of Grapefruit Grove Gingham Gala 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper.  Using my Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blends Marker I drew lines between the checks to make it look like plaid.  I adhered a small piece of the DSP to the left side of a Whisper White card front using Snail.  I wrapped a piece of the Grapefruit Grove 1/4″ Organdy Ribbon around the card front on the seem.  I adhered the card front to a Call Me Clover mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  In the upper right corner of the Whisper White panel, I stamped the flies from the So Hoppy Together stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored them in using my Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Marker.

On a small piece of Whisper White cardstock, I stamped the Frog riding the unicycle from Stampin’ Up So Hoppy Together stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set in Call Me Clover Ink below the wheel.  I colored the frog and unicycle in using my Basic Black, Call Me Clover, Pineapple Punch, Smoky Slate and Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blends Markers and my Grapefruit Grove Stampin’ Write Marker.  I adhered the artwork to a Call Me Clover mat using Snail and then to a Soft Sea Foam mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered the matted artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card front to a Soft Sea Foam card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added 1 Grapefruit Grove Share What You Love Artisan Pearl next to the sentiment.

On the inside Whisper White panel I stamped the frog from So Hoppy Together stamp set on the bottom portion of the panel and the flies from the same set by the frog.  I colored it in the same as I did for the front of the card.  I adhered a small strip of the Gingham Gala 6 X 6 DSP to the bottom of the panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the Postcard Pals stamp set in Call Me Clover in the center of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Call Me Clover mat using Snail, then adhered it to the Soft Sea Foam card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card, I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the frog from the So Happy Together stamp set on both sides of the envelope front and colored them in the same as I did on the card.  I adhered a piece of the Gingham Gala 6 X 6 DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  This was really a fun card to make and I hope you will give it a try.  Happy Stamping.

Stampin’ Up Amazing Life for TGIF

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  Well, tomorrow’s the big day.  The new 2019 Occasions Catalog and Sale-A-Bration go live.  Does everyone have their wish lists ready?  Mine’s a mile long.

For today’s card I have a fun fold and I played along with the TGIF Challenge #192. Be sure to stop by TGIF to see all the beautiful projects made.  Here is their challenge.

Their challenge was to use Glossy Paper.  Here is what I came up with.  Take a look.

I started with 2 pieces of Glossy White cardstock and did the Shaving Cream Technique on them using Petal Pink, So Saffron and Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Ink Refills.  Once the paper was dry, I stamped the sentiment and the cake from Stampin’ Up Amazing Life stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on them and let the ink dry completely.  Once they were dry I adhered the panel with the sentiment onto the Petal Pink cardstock and the panel with the cake onto the Soft Sea Foam cardstock.

I adhered the So Saffron panel to the Soft Sea Foam panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I then adhered the Petal Pink cardstock to a So Saffron panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I wrapped a piece of Petal Pink Metallic Ribbon around the Soft Sea Foam side and tied a knot.  I secured the knot with a Glue Dot.  I added some Share What You Love Artisan Pearls and Clear Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the Glossy White artwork panels.

On the inside on a Whisper White panel I stamped the Happy Birthday from the Amazing Life stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center.  I stamped the scroll from the same stamp set above the sentiment in Soft Sea Foam Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Petal Pink using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the birthday cake image from Amazing Life stamp set on the front of the envelope.  I stamped the envelope flap with the Marble background stamp in Petal Pink Ink.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try.  All the card cuts and folds are listed below for you.  Happy Stamping.

Stampin’ Up Animal Expeditions Birthday

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers.  Well, we’re up to another weekend already and for some of you it’s another 4 day weekend.  I just love these short weeks.  Is anyone making some fun plans for the weekend or New Year’s yet?  2019 is just 4 days away and that means that in just 6 days the 2019 Occasions Catalog and Sale-A-Bration Catalog start.  I’m making up my wish list and I hope you are too.

For today’s card I pulled out some of the Animal Expeditions Designer Series Paper and let that do all the work for me.  I have a nephew’s birthday coming up and he loves alligators.  I don’t know about you, but I always have trouble with masculine cards and boys cards.  I’m always afraid I’m going to make them too girly looking.  Here’s what I came up with for an 8 year old boy. Take a look.

I started with a Basic Black card front and adhered a piece of the Animal Expeditions Designer Series Paper using Snail.  I then adhered it to a Lemon Lime Twist card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Using my Big Shot and my Happy Birthday Thinlits Dies, I cut it out twice.  Once in Lemon Lime Twist cardstock and once in Basic Black cardstock.  I adhered the Lemon Lime Twist Happy Birthday to the Basic Black Happy Birthday using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I then adhered the Happy Birthday dies to the card front using Glue Dots.

On the inside Whisper White panel I stamped the sentiment from Postcard Pals stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink in the center.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Shaded Spruce mat using Snail.  I then fussy cut some of the alligators from the Animal Expeditions DSP and adhered them to the Whisper White panel using Snail.  I adhered the matted panel to the Lemon Lime Twist card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish up my card I adhered a piece of the Animal Expeditions DSP to a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  There you go a super simple little boy’s birthday card and not too girly looking.

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