Stampin’ Up! Tropical Oasis Birthday

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  How has everyone’s week started off?  Hope it’s going good so far.

I have a quick and easy masculine card for you today using some of the new Designer Series Paper from the January-June 2020 Mini Catalog.  Here’s my card.

I started by stamping the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Birthdays Cling Stamp Set in Versamark Ink on the bottom of an Early Espresso card front.  I immediately sprinkled it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I adhered a panel of Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper to the card front using Snail.

I wrapped a piece of 5/16″ Braided Burlap Trim around the bottom of the DSP on the card front and tied a knot.  I adhered the card front to an Early Espresso card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a Tropical Oasis Trinket to the left of the sentiment using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tropical Cling Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Early Espresso mat using Snail.  I adhered a panel of Tropical Oasis DSP to the inside of the Early Espresso card base using Snail.  I adhered the matted panel to the inside of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  On a small piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the palm tree image from the Timeless Tropical stamp set using Pear Pizzazz and Soft Suede Stampin’ Write Markers.  I cut the image out using the In The Tropic Dies.  I adhered the palm tree to the side of the sentiment 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 twice on the envelope front colored  with my Pear Pizzazz and Soft Suede Stampin’ Write Markers.  I adhered a panel of 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. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Best Dressed Peaceful Moments

Good Monday morning my stamping friends.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Did anyone do anything fun?  We had a little bit of snow here, but by Sunday afternoon it was gone.  Every winter I ask for one big snow storm, not these little ones that the snow disappears in a day.  I like to get one storm with about 1-2 feet of snow, enough that I just have to stay in for a day and craft.  Last year we never got one, just extremely cold.

For today’s card I used some of the new Designer Series Paper from the 2020 January-June Mini Catalog and an embellishment from the Sale-A-Bration Catalog.  Here’s my card.

I joined in with TGIF Challenge #247.  Here is their theme.

I started by adhering a panel of the Best Dressed 6X6 Designer Series Paper to a Petal Pink mat using Snail.  I then adhered it to a Lovely Lipstick mat using Snail.

I embossed a panel of Whisper White cardstock using the Parisian Flourish 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the embossed panel to a Petal Pink mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I then adhered it to a Lovely Lipstick mat using Snail.  I wrapped a piece of Bermuda Bay Bakers Twine from the Sale-A-Bration Metallic Baker’s Twine & Sequins Combo Pack around the matted card front twice and tied a bow.  I adhered the card front to a Whisper White card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Moments Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using the Painted Labels Dies.  I edged the die cut sentiment using my Bermuda Bay Stampin’ Write Marker.  I adhered the sentiment to the artwork using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and added a Lovely Lipstick Happiness Blooms Enamel Dot to the sentiment.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Peaceful Moments stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I fussy cut some of the shoes from the Best Dressed 6 X 6 DSP and adhered them to the panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Lovely Lipstick mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I adhered a strip of the Best Dressed 6 X 6 DSP to the bottom of the envelope front and a panel to the envelope flap.

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

Stampin’ Up! Purple Painted Poppies

Good Monday morning my stamping friends.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Did anyone do anything fun?  We spent Saturday at Hollywood Studios again and Sunday we went to Animal Kingdom.  Today we are heading to Magic Kingdom once again and will be leaving for home late tonight.  My husband booked an early morning flight coming so that we would get a full day in and a late night flight leaving so we would get another full day in.  I have gone on more rides this past week than I’ve gone on my entire life.  I don’t normally go on rides, but we were all having such a great time, I figured why not.  Like my niece told me “You only live once”.   I’m gong to need a vacation after this.  We will be arriving home early tomorrow morning (2am early) and 3 of the 4 of us have gotten sick.  I know where we’ll be heading tomorrow 😦  I don’t know about you, but the last place I want to be when I’m sick is on a plane.

I have a Clean and Simple card for you today,  Here’s my card.

I started by adhering a panel of the Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper to a Blackberry Bliss mat using Snail.  I just love the color variations in this paper.  I adhered the matted DSP to a Blackberry Bliss card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the small poppy image from the Stampin’ Up! Painted Poppies Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the image in using my Blackberry Bliss, Purple Posy and Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the dragonfly image from the Stampin’ Up! Friend Like You Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink above the poppies.  I cut the image out using the 2nd largest circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies.

I cut a strip of Purple Posy cardstock using the Banner Triple Punch. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips Cling Stamp Set in Blackberry Bliss Ink on the bottom of the banner.  I adhered the banner to the card front using Snail.  I adhered the artwork to the top of the banner using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a Purple Posy 2019-2021 In-Color Faceted Dot to the artwork.  I tied a small bow using the Blackberry Bliss Nature’s Twine and adhered it to the card front using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Blackberry Bliss Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the stemmed flower image from the Painted Poppies stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink to the left side of the panel.  I colored the image in using my Old Olive and Purple Posy Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Purple Posy mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Blackberry Bliss card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the small poppy image from the Painted Poppies stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink 3 times across the bottom of the envelope front.  I colored the image in using my Blackberry Bliss, Purple Posy and Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of the Peaceful Poppies 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 Blue Wild Rose for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday.  How was everyone’s week?  The weekend is upon us, have you made any plans yet?  Today we’re off to Epcot after a quick stop at Hollywood Studios again. The new Star Wars – Rise of the Resistance ride broke right when we got on yesterday (after waiting 9 hours for our que and over an hour on line).  We were rushed on to a ship, flown into space and taken by the Storm Troopers and it broke 😦   They gave us a ticket to go back to Hollywood Studios today and Fast Pass to go back on that ride.  I thought it was going to be a laid back day walking around Epcot, but plans have changed.  I’m sure I’ll be getting another 10 miles+ of walking in again.  My son wants to bring my daughter drinking around the world at Epcot,  guess I’m going to be the designated one to get everyone back to the hotel safely.  My daughter turned 21 last May and does not drink, this should be interesting.  I know we have Mission Space and Test Track on the agenda at Epcot for today.  My husband hasn’t mentioned Soaring yet.  That one got me a little nauseous last time we were here.  We’ll see what happens, just give me the Dramamine.

I have another new to me Overlay Fun Fold for you today using the beautiful Stampin’ Up To A Wild Rose Bundle.  I saw this card done by Lisa Curcio and thought I would CASE it. Here’s my card.

I started by scoring and folding a Seaside Spray card base.  The card base is 5 1/4″ X 5 1/2″  You need to score it so that you have a 4 1/4″ X 5 1/2″ card base.  I embossed a panel of Crumb Cake cardstock using the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the 4″ X 4″ Seaside Spray panel under the fold of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, lining up the bottom edges.  I adhered the embossed Crumb Cake panel to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a 5″ X 4 1/2″ panel of Shimmery White cardstock I stamped the outlined rose image once and the outlined leaf image3 times from the Stampin’ Up! To A Wild Rose Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the rose image in using my Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I colored the leaf images in using my Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the images out using my Wild Rose Dies.

I adhered the rose to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the leaves under the rose using Glue Dots.  I wrapped a piece of Seaside Spray 1/2″ Scalloped Linen Ribbon around the top of the card front and tied a square knot.  I’m not sure if I am going to use this card for Birthday, Mother’s Day, or any other occasion, so I didn’t put a sentiment on the front panel yet.  Once I decide I will stamp and punch a sentiment and adhere it with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the outlined rose image from To A Wild Rose stamp set in Seaside Spray Ink, stamping off once, to the center of a Shimmery White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Strong & Beautiful Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink over the rose image.  I adhered the Shimmery White panel to a Crumb Cake mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Seaside Spray card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the outlined rose image from the To A Wild Rose stamp set on the envelope front.  I stamped the fill image from To A Wild Rose stamp set over the outlined image in Seaside Spray Ink, stamping off once.  I stamped the detail fill image from To A Wild Rose stamp set in Seaside Spray Ink over the other image.  I adhered a panel of the Seaside Spray 2019-2021 In-Color Designer Series Paper to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my fun fold card and will give it a try.  I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.  we’ll be spending it at Animal Kingdom and Hollywood Studios again.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Honey Bee Hello

Good Wednesday morning from Disney World my fellow stampers.  How is everyone’s week going?  We made it here safely and we’re out and running already.  Yesterday we had a pretty laid back day, only a little over 14,000 steps and 6 1/2 miles walked.  We’re heading over to Magic Kingdom today, so I’m sure there will be more miles covered.  My 24 year old son is so excited to go on the Buzz Light Year Space Ranger Spin (so he can beat all of us), Pirates of the Caribbean and Haunted Mansion.  There’s something about Disney that brings the child back out of you.

I have an adorable card for you today, at least I think it is.  I used the new Stampin’ Up! Honey Bee Bundle from page 30 of the new 2020 January-June Mini Catalog with the coordinating Designer Series Paper from the Sale-A-Bration Catalog.  I actually CASEd the card from the Sale-A-Bration catalog.  Here’s my card.

I started by adhering a panel of the Golden Honey Specialty Designer Series Paper to a Thick Very Vanilla card base using Snail.  Using the Detailed Bee Dies I cut the honeycomb out of a Gold Foil Sheet.  I adhered some of the honey pieces to the card front using Glue Dots.

On a small strip of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped 3 large bees from the Stampin’ Up! Honey Bee Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I cut the bees out using the Detailed Bee Dies.  I colored the stripes on the bees in using my Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends Marker.  I went over the wings of the bees using my Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush.  I adhered the honeycomb to a Very Vanilla panel, which I embossed using the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder, using a tiny amount of Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the top and bottom bee to the panel using Glue Dots and the bee on the honeycomb using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  On a very thin strip of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Honey Bee stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I adhered the sentiment to the very vanilla panel using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added one of the honey pieces to the end of the strip using a Glue Dot.

I adhered a piece of 3/8″ Gold Metallic Edge Ribbon to the card front using Snail.  I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the bee hive from the Honey Bee stamp set in So Saffron Ink in the center of a Very Vanilla panel.  I stamped the smaller bee image from the Honey Bee stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink next to the hive.  I stamped the sentiment from the Honey Bee stamp set above the hive in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the stripes on the bee in using my Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends Marker.  I used my Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush on the bees wings.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Basic Black mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Thick Very Vanilla card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I stamped the large bee image from the Honey Bee stamp set twice in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front.  I colored the stripes on the bees in using my Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends Marker and the wings on the bee using my Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush.  I adhered a panel of Golden Honey 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! Timeless Tulips

Good Monday morning my stamping friends.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Have you all recovered from the holidays?  I’m still trying, but it’s hard with not having much down time.  I’ve been running around all weekend in between working to pick things up and pack for vacation.  We are finally going on vacation as a family for the 1st time in 18 years.  We leave tomorrow morning for my favorite place, Disney World.  I feel like such a kid all excited.  I think it will be a lot of fun going with 4 adults.  Last time we were there, my son was 6 and my daughter was 3.  I’m not a big ride person, but my husband has booked me with quite a few fast passes on rides.  We’ll see what happens.

For today’s card I used one of the new sets from the 2020 January-June Mini Catalog from page 43, the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips Bundle.  Here’s my card.

I started by embossing a Seaside Spray card front using the Layered Leaves 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the card front to a Seaside Spray card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered a strip of Silver Foil Sheet down the middle of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped 3 stems from the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips Photopolymer Stamp Set in Pear Pizzazz Ink.  I stamped 2 of the leaf image from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on the stems.  On a strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the large tulip image from the Timeless Tulips stamp set twice in Calypso Coral Ink and once in Petal Pink Ink.  I stamped one of the leaf images from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on the strip of cardstock also.  I punched the tulips out and the leaf out using the Tulip Builder Punch.

I adhered the punched out tulips to the stems on the Whisper White panel.  I adhered the Calypso Coral tulips using Glue Dots and the Petal Pink tulip using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I tied a small bow using the 1/4″ Seaside Spray Metallic Ribbon and adhered it to the stems using a Glue Dot.  I added a few Clear Epoxy Droplets to the artwork.  I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Well Said Cling Stamp Set in Pear Pizzazz Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the stem image and 2 leaf images from the Timeless Tulips stamp set on the side of the panel in Pear Pizzazz Ink.  I stamped the large tulip image from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Petal Pink Ink on the stem.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Seaside Spray mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Seaside Spray card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped 3 stems and leaves from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped the smallest tulip image from the Timeless Tulips stamp set on the stems, 2 in Calypso Coral Ink and one in Petal Pink Ink.  I adhered a panel of the 2019-2021 In-Color Designer Series Paper to the envelope flap.

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

Stampin’ Up Tropical Oasis Pocketful of Happiness for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to the first Fun Fold Friday of 2020.  Well, today is the day everyone has been waiting for, the New January-June 2020 Mini Catalog is live.  I hope you all have your shopping lists ready, I know I do.  I can’t wait to get my hands on some of the new items.  Don’t forget for every $50 order you get to pick a free item from the Sale-A-Bration Catalog too.  I just love this time of year.  Who doesn’t like FREE!!  Along with the free Sale-A-Bration item you get to pick one free item from me worth up to $10 from any current catalog and you receive one Sand Dollar Reward.

For today I have a really quick fun fold for you.  I used a little new and a little old.  Here’s my card.

I started by folding my Soft Seafoam card base at 4 1/4″ and I folded the 1″ side back.  I adhered a thin strip of Pear Pizzazz cardstock to the back of the 1″ edge using Snail.  I adhered the 1″ folded piece down using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered one of the 1″ strips of Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper just a smidge over from left folded edge of the card front using Snail.  I absolutely love this DSP.  This piece especially reminds me of my Tiger Lily Garden that blooms beautifully in the summer.

I adhered the other 1″ strip of Tropical Oasis DSP to the right edge of the inside of the card base using Snail.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Birthdays Cling Stamp Set in Pear Pizzazz Ink to the right of the panel.  I stamped the flower from the Stampin’ Up! Pocketful of Happiness Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink to the left of the sentiment twice, stamping them both off the paper.  I colored the flowers in using my Lovely Lipstick, Mango Melody and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the sentiment to the right folded edge using Multipurpose Liquid Glue so that it hung over the edge.  I wrapped a piece of 3/8″ Silver Metallic Edge Ribbon around the card front and tied a knot.  On a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the flower from the Pocketful of Happiness stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored it in using my Lovely Lipstick, Mango Melody and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I fussy cut the flower using my Paper Snips and adhered it to the left edge of the sentiment using a Stampin’ Dimensional.  I added a few Melon Mambo Glitter Enamel Dots to the flowers and card front.

On the inside I stamped the smaller flower image from the Pocketful of Happiness stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the top and bottom of a Whisper White panel.  I colored the images in using my So Saffron and Soft Seafoam Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the sentiment from the Pocketful of Happiness stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink in the center of the Whisper White panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pear Pizzazz mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Soft Seafoam card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the small flower image from the Pocketful of Happiness stamp set on the envelope front twice.  I colored the images in using my So Saffron and Soft Seafoam Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of Tropical Oasis DSP to the envelope flap.
