Stampin’ Up! Queen Bee Birthday

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend? I hope you were able to do something fun. It was a gloomy one here in NJ.

Today’s card I played with one of my favorite sets from the new January-April 2023 Mini Catalog. I used it last Wednesday for my live and I think I had mentioned that I wasn’t sure I was going to like it alot. I do and I’ve been playing with it a lot. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Queen Bee Birthday 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Queen Bee Bundle, the Stampin’ Up! Inspired Thoughts Cling Stamp Set, Perfectly Penciled Designer Series Paper and Subtle 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my card today.

Stampin' Up! Queen Bee Birthday 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by adhering a panel of Perfectly Penciled DSP to a Basic White Thick card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered a panel of Subtle DSP to the card front on an angle using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I cut a panel of Basic White cardstock using the 2nd largest Deckled Rectangle Dies. I embossed the panel using the Hive 3D Embossing Folder. Using my Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker and the flicking technique, I added black ink on the embossed panel.

I stamped the flower and small bee images from the Stampin’ Up! Queen Bee Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I cut the images using the Queen Bee Dies. I colored the flowers only using my So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers. Using the Queen Bee Dies, I cut the hives from a panel of Basic Black cardstock and the leaves and flowers from a panel of So Saffron cardstock. I adhered the floral image and small bee to the embossed panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiments from the Queen Bee stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I cut the sentiment out using the Queen Bee Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the embossed panel overlapping the flowers a little using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the die cut leaves under the sentiment using Glue Dots. I adhered the hives around the sentiment using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the flowers using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added Classic Matte Dots to the flower centers. I tied a small bow using the Black & White 1/4″ Gingham Ribbon and adhered it to the sentiment using a Glue Dot. I adhered the embossed panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Inspired Thoughts stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the floral and bee images from the Queen Bee stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the flowers using my So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers. I randomly stamped the newsprint image from the Queen Bee stamp set in So Saffron Ink on the Basic White panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a So Saffron mat then to the inside of the Basic White Thick card base.

Stampin’ Up! Queen Bee for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Any plans for the weekend yet? I have off of work tomorrow, but I’ll be working all day on Sunday. Tomorrow would have been a very special day if my dad were still here. It’s his 100th birthday. I’m sure he’ll be enjoying it up in heaven with my mom and all his siblings and family members.

Stampin’ Up! Sentimental Park for The Card Concepts

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. I hope everyone’s week is going well. We’re halfway through and on our way to the weekend.

It’s time for an inspiration challenge from The Card Concepts. The inspiration photo #187a is Winter Cocoa and inspiration photo #187b is Winter Snow.  Here is my card that was inspired from the challenge photo.

Stampin' Up! Sentimental Park 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Sentimental Park Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Stampin’ Up! Ringed With Nature Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the By The Bay 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my card today. I was inspired by the colors from inspiration photo #187a for my clean & layered card.

I hope you will take a moment to visit The Card Concepts and join us for our challenge #187a or #187b.  How are you inspired by the photos?

My design is from Sunday Stamps Challenge #300.

Stampin' Up! Sentimental Park 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by embossing a panel of Cherry Cobbler cardstock using the Tree Rings Hybrid Embossing Folder. I cut a panel of By The Bay DSP using the Deckled Rectangle Dies. I adhered the die cut panel of By The Bay DSP to an Early Espresso mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to the Cherry Cobbler card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I stamped the sentiment from Sentimental Park stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the bottom of the DSP panel. I wrapped a piece of Crumb Cake Bakers Twine from the Baker’s Twine Essential Pack, around the card front 3 times and tied a knot.

Stampin' Up! Sentimental Park 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

Using the Tree Rings Dies with the Tree Rings Hybrid Embossing Folder, I cut a panel of Crumb Cake and Early Espresso cardstock. I cut the center out from the Crumb Cake panel using the Tree Rings Dies. I adhered the Crumb Cake center to the Early Espresso panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the layered tree ring to the card front, over the bakers twine, using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Sentimental Park 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

Using the Christmas Pinecone Dies I cut the detailed die from a panel of Early Espresso cardstock and the solid image from a panel of Crumb Cake cardstock, 3 times each. I adhered the detailed pinecones to the solid pinecones using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the layered pinecones to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the card front to an Early Espresso card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Enamel Dot Essentials to the card front.

Stampin' Up! Sentimental Park 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside, I stamped the tree ring image from the Ringed With Nature stamp set on a panel of Basic White cardstock in Crumb Cake Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper. I stamped the sentiments from the Sentimental Park stamp set in Early Espresso Ink over the tree ring image. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat then to the inside of the Early Espresso card base.

Stampin' Up! Sentimental Park 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic Whtie Medium Envelope. I stamped the tree ring image from the Ringed With Nature stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink on the envelope front, stamping off once on scrap paper. I stamped the sentiment from the Ringed With Nature stamp set in Early Espresso Ink over the tree ring image. I adhered a panel of By The Bay DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Decorative Borders CAS Birthday

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend? Did anyone do anything fun or maybe just took time to relax? I worked all day on Saturday and Sunday I took some time in my craft area.

Today’s card is a super simple Clean and Simple card. My design is from my upline Jaimie. She’s giving us a new sketch challenge each week. Having a sketch sometimes in front of you can make the card process go so much faster. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Decorative Borders CAS 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Decorative Borders Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Stampin’ Up! Inspired Thoughts Cling Stamp Set for my card today.

This is our sketch for the week to work with.

Stampin' Up! Decorative Borders CAS 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by cutting the largest circle from the Layering Circles Dies out of a panel of Masking Paper. I placed the Masking Paper on a Basic White card front. Using my Blending Brush, I added Fresh Freesia Ink only on the inside of the circle. I removed the Masking Paper.

Stampin' Up! Decorative Borders CAS 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

I stamped the floral image from the Decorative Borders stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink around the inked circle image.

Stampin' Up! Decorative Borders CAS 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

I stamped the sentiment from the Inspired Thoughts stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink next to the floral image. I adhered the card front to a Basic Black mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to a Fresh Freesia card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Brushed Brass Butterflies to the card front.

Stampin' Up! Decorative Borders CAS 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Inspired Thoughts stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the loral image from the Decorative Borders stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink next to the sentiment. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Basic Black mat then to the inside of the Fresh Freesia card base.

Stampin' Up! Decorative Borders CAS 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the floral image from the Decorative Borders stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of Butterfly Kisses 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to the envelope flap.

  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.

Product List

Stampin’ Up! Sweet Citrus for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Does anyone have any plans yet for the weekend? I’ll be at work tomorrow all day. I’m hoping to de-Christmas my house this weekend too, it’s time to take the decorations down. I was going to start today, but I’m not sure how much I’ll get done. Coraline starts her training classes today. I’m really looking forward to these. As good of a puppy she is, she needs that discipline, and she is one stubborn little girl.

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! Sweet Citrus Fun Fold 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Sweet Citrus Bundle and the Subtle 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my card today.

Stampin' Up! Sweet Citrus Fun Fold 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by adhering a panel of the Subtle DSP to a So Saffron card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the layered panel to the bottom triangle only of the card base. I adhered a strip of the Subtle DSP to the side panel of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Sweet Citrus Fun Fold 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the outline lemon image from the Sweet Citrus stamp set in Daffodil Delight Ink. I stamped the inside pulp image from the Sweet Citrus stamp set in So Saffron Ink over the outline image. Using the Sweet Citrus Dies and Sweet Citrus Hybrid Embossing Folder, I cut and embossed the images. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the leaf image multiple times in Granny Apple Green Ink. I cut the leaves out using the Sweet Citrus Dies. I adhered cut lemon pieces to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the leaves under the lemons using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I added Faux Sea Glass Shapes to the lemon pieces as seeds.

Stampin' Up! Sweet Citrus Fun Fold 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a strip of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Sweet Citrus stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink. I cut the ends of the sentiment using my Paper Snips on an angle. I adhered the sentiment to the top of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a couple 2021-2023 In-Color Opal Rounds to the sentiment.

Stampin' Up! Sweet Citrus Fun Fold 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Sweet Citrus stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the flower images from the Sweet Citrus stamp set on either side of the sentiment in Smoky Slate Ink and the centers in Daffodil Delight Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Blushing Bride mat then to the inside of the So Saffron card base. I adhered the solid lemon image to the bottom corner of the inner liner using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the leaves under the lemon using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Sweet Citrus Fun Fold 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the lemon wedge image from the Sweet Citrus stamp set on the envelope front in Daffodil Delight and So Saffron Inks. I adhered a panel of the Subtle DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin' Up! Sweet Citrus Fun Fold 7 creativestampingdesigns.com

Stampin’ Up! Brewed For You Celebrate

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! I hope you all had a fun New Year’s Eve. Did anyone go out to celebrate? A couple of my husband’s friends came over last night and I got to spend some time in my crafting area. My husband and daughter picked up all kinds of appetizers, so it was a very relaxed evening.

I pulled out some product from the Annual Catalog for my card today. I felt it was appropriate, LOL. In only 4 short days the new January-April 2023 Mini Catalog will be live and you can finally order things that are on your shopping list. I know my list is very long. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Brewed For You Celebrate 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Brewed For You Bundle along with the Stampin’ Up! Simply Fabulous Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Awash In Beauty Designer Series Paper for my card today.

Stampin' Up! Brewed For You Celebrate 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by adhering a panel of Awash In Beauty DSP to another panel of Awash In Beauty DSP using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to a Merry Merlot mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to a Mossy Meadow card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Brewed For You Celebrate 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

I cut a small panel of Awash Ink Beauty DSP using the large narrow banner die from the Stylish Shapes Dies. I embossed a panel of Merry Merlot cardstock using the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the banner to the embossed panel using Glue Dots. On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Simply Fabulous stamp set in Merry Merlot Ink. I cut the sentiment out using the smallest narrow Stitched Rectangle Die. I adhered the sentiment to the top of the layered panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the sentiment layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Brewed For You Celebrate 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the goblet image from the Stampin’ Up! Brewed For You Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink 2 times. I stamped the solid image from the Brewed For You stamp set in Blushing Bride Ink over the goblet image. I cut the 2 images out using the Brewed Dies. I adhered the goblets to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Mossy Meadow Solid Faceted Gems to the card front.

Stampin' Up! Brewed For You Celebrate 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Brewed For You stamp set in Merry Merlot Ink on a panel of Basic White Cardstock. I stamped the goblet image from the Brewed For You stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on either side of the sentiment. I stamped the solid image in Blushing Bride Ink inside the glass. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Merry Merlot mat then to the inside of the Mossy Meadow card base.

Stampin' Up! Brewed For You Celebrate 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the goblet image from the Brewed For You stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the front of the envelope twice. I stamped the solid image in the glass in Blushing Bride Ink. I adhered a panel of Awash In Beauty DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Two-Tone Flora 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 Karen’s blog, thank you for stopping by. This week we have Theme Challenge. Here is my card using this week’s Theme.

Stampin' Up! Two-Tone Flora Drapery Fold 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Two-Tone Flora Bundle and the Stampin’ Up! Something Fancy Cling Stamp Set along with the Fancy Flora 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my Drapery Fold card today.

Our theme this week is a Fun Fold YAY!!!

Stampin' Up! Two-Tone Flora Drapery Fold 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by scoring, cutting and folding a panel of Fancy Flora DSP as in the diagram below.

This is my template for the drapery fold.

Stampin' Up! Two-Tone Flora Drapery Fold 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Something Fancy stamp set in Orchid Oasis Ink on the top of the panel. I stamped the tall leaf image from the Stampin’ Up! Two-Tone Flora Photopolymer Stamp Set in Pool Party Ink along the bottom of the panel. Adhere the Basic White panel to the top of a Fresh Freesia mat using Stampin’ Seal. Adhere the drapery folded panel of Fancy Floral DSP to the bottom of the mat using Tear & Tape on the top of the panel and Multipurpose Liquid Glue along the larger side of the panel. On a panel of Basic White cardstock, stamp 3 of the flower images from the Two-Tone Flora stamp set. Stamp the detail images in Orchid Oasis Ink and the solid images in Fresh Freesia Ink. Stamp the leaf image from the Two-Tone Flora stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink 4 times. Cut all the images out using the Two-Tone Flora Dies.

Stampin' Up! Two-Tone Flora Drapery Fold 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

I wrapped a piece of the Pool Party 3/8″ Grosgrain Ribbon around the layered panel and adhered it to the back using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the die cut flowers to the top of the panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the leaves under the flowers using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and Glue Dots. I adhered the panel to the Orchid Oasis card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Iridescent Pastel Gems to the card front.

Stampin' Up! Two-Tone Flora Drapery Fold 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Something Fancy stamp set in Orchid Oasis Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped 2 of the flower images from the Two-Tone Flora stamp set on the top and bottom of the panel. I stamped the details images in Orchid Oasis Ink and the solid images in Fresh Freesia Ink. I stamped the leaf image from the Two-Tone Flora stamp set by the flowers in Soft Succulent Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Fresh Freesia mat then to the inside of the Orchid Oasis card base.

Stampin' Up! Two-Tone Flora Drapery Fold 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the small flower cluster image from the Two-Tone Flora stamp set in Orchid Oasis and Fresh Freesia Inks on the bottom front of the envelope. I adhered a panel of the Fancy Flora DSP to the envelope flap.

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 July – December 2022 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.

Stampin’ Up! Decorative Borders Biggest Wish for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday afternoon my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. I’m a little late today, but better late than never. We are 2 days away from Christmas, are you all ready. I have a couple dinner/dessert preps to take care of later today. If I haven’t bought it yet, it’s not getting bought. Between my husband and daughter, they are taking card of most of the wrapping. I’m having a lot of trouble with my shoulder again and I can’t lift my arm at all. 3rd time the rotator cuff has torn, and they don’t know if they can fix it yet. Luckily that doesn’t affect my card making LOL. Making cards I only really move the bottom of my arm and don’t really have to do much lifting and if I do that’s what my left arm is for.

I have a super simple fun fold today using products from the Annual Catalog and a set coming in the January – April 2023 Mini Catalog. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Decorative Borders Biggest Wish 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Biggest Wish Photopolymer Stamp Set, the Stampin’ Up! Decorative Borders Photopolymer Stamp Set (available Jan 5, 2023) and the Stampin’ Up! Charming Sentiments Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Design A Daydream Host Designer Series Paper for my card today.

Stampin' Up! Decorative Borders Biggest Wish 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by adhering a panel of Design A Daydream DSP to the front panel of the Mint Macaron card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Decorative Borders Biggest Wish 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

I cut a panel of Basic White cardstock using the 3rd largest Scallop Contours Dies. I stamped the flower image from the Decorative Borders stamp set along the bottom of the die cut panel in Tuxedo Black Ink. I stamped the Happy from the Biggest Wish stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink. I stamped the birthday sentiment from the Biggest Wish stamp set in Calypso Coral Ink over the Happy. I colored the flower image using my Calypso Coral, Mint Macaron and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers.

Stampin' Up! Decorative Borders Biggest Wish 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

I adhered the die cut panel to the left side of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals only of the left side of the panel. I added a few Iridescent Pastel Gems (available Jan 5, 2023) to the card front.

Stampin' Up! Decorative Borders Biggest Wish 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside, I adhered a panel of Design A Daydream DSP to the right side of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I stamped the sentiment from the Charming Sentiments stamp set in Calypso Coral Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the flower image from the Decorative Borders stamp set on the bottom of the panel in Tuxedo Black Ink on an angle. I colored the image using my Calypso Coral, Mint Macaron & So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to the inside of the Mint Macaron card base using Stampin’ Seal.

Stampin' Up! Decorative Borders Biggest Wish 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the border flower image from the Decorative Borders stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and colored it the same as for the card. I adhered a panel of Design A Daydream DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin' Up! Decorative Borders Biggest Wish 7 creativestampingdesigns.com
