Stampin’ Up! Splendid Thoughts Birthday Sneak Peek

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends and welcome to the weekend. Does anyone have any plans? I’ll be at work all day today, but they gave me off tomorrow so I can stay home with my fur baby. She still can’t stay alone since we have to keep her off the stairs.

Today’s card is another one that we made last Saturday night at our Creativity Now Event. Today and tomorrow’s cards actually go together, you’ll see why tomorrow. They are both outside of my comfort zone, but it’s ok to do that and try new things. I’m actually happy with how they turned out. I did tweak the cards a little from how they designed them. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Splendid Thoughts Bundle along with the Splendid Day Specialty Designer Series Paper and the Stampin’ Up! Go To Greetings Cling Stamp Set for my card today.

I started by randomly stamping the large leaf image from the Stampin’ Up! Splendid Thoughts Cling Stamp Set in Petal Pink Ink on a Petal Pink card front. I embossed the panel using the Fern 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the card front to a Petal Pink card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I cut 4 panels of the Splendid Day DSP using the 1/2 moon shape die from the Splendid Stems Dies. Using my Paper Snips, I distressed the edge of a panel of Basic White cardstock. I adhered the 4 die cut pieces to the Basic White panel unevenly leaving a space for the sentiment. I wrapped a piece of the Soft Sea Foam 3/8″ Seam Binding Ribbon around the panel and tied a knot. I adhered the panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Soft Sea Foam cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Splendid Thoughts stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I cut the sentiment out using my Stylish Shapes Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added an Open Leaf Trinket to the card front using a Glue Dot.

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Go To Greetings stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the large leaf image from the Splendid Thoughts stamp set around the panel in Petal Pink Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Petal Pink mat and then to the inside of the Petal Pink card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the leaf image from the Splendid Thoughts stamp set in Petal Pink Ink around the front of the envelope. I adhered a panel of the Splendid Day DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. The Bundle and DSP used for today’s card will be available starting Friday July 1st. If you don’t have a demonstrator and would like a copy of the Annual and Mini Catalog, please contact me and I’ll get one out to you right away. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Splendid Thoughts CAS Blended

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. We’re halfway through the week and on our way to the weekend. Is anyone planning anything special for Father’s Day?

Today’s card is another one that we made on Sunday at our in-person team meeting. This card was designed by one of my team member Tara who lives in Missouri. I fell in love with this design the second I saw it. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Splendid Thoughts Bundle for my card today.

I started by putting 2 strips of Post-It Tape on a panel of Shimmery White cardstock leaving about 1 3/4″ opening between them. Starting with Pale Papaya Ink, using my Blending Brush, I added color to the top section of the panel. I then added Soft Succulent Ink using my Blending Brush in the center section. Last I used Orchid Oasis Ink on the bottom section with my Blending Brush.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Splendid Thoughts Cling Stamp Set in Evening Evergreen Ink on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Shimmer White panel to a Soft Succulent mat using Stampin’ Seal. I cut the leaf die using my Splendid Stems Dies from a panel of Soft Succulent cardstock. I adhered the leaf die to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I wrapped a piece of Evening Evergreen bakers’ twine, from the Fan Bakers Twine pack (retiring June 30), around the layered panel 3 times and tied a bow. I adhered the layered panel to an Evening Evergreen card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Iridescent Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Charming Sentiments Photopolymer Stamp Set in Evening Evergreen Ink on a Shimmery White panel. I stamped the large leaf image from the Splendid Thoughts stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Shimmery 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 large leaf image from the Splendid Thoughts stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink on the envelope front and flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked this card as much as I did. The products used will be available starting July 1 from the July-December 2022 Mini Catalog. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Season of Chic for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends. Welcome to Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop. It’s the 2nd Tuesday of the month so that means Blog Hop Day!! If you are starting with me, be sure to hop around to see everyone’s handsome projects. If you’ve hopped over from Carol Buckalew’s blog, welcome to my blog and thank you for stopping by. The theme this month is “Birthday”.  We can interpret this however we want.  Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Season of Chic Suite for my card today.

I started by adhering a panel of Texture Chic Specialty Designer Series Paper to a Sahara Sand card base. I adhered a strip of the Texture Chic DSP to a strip of Petal Pink cardstock using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered strip to the side of the card front using Stampin’ Seal.

Using my Chic Dies, I cut the net and 2 shell dies from a panel of Distressed Gold Specialty Paper. I adhered the net die to the card front. I cut the detailed shell die from the Chic Die from a panel of Sahara Sand cardstock and adhered it to the card front over the net die. On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the detailed seashell image from the Stampin’ Up! Season Of Chic Photopolymer Stamp Set in Petal Pink Ink. I stamped the seashell fill image in Petal Pink Ink over the detailed image stamping off once on scrap paper. I cut the image out using my Chic Die. I adhered the seashell to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered one of the die cut shells from the Distressed Gold paper tucked under the stamped shell image.

On the panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the fill seashell image from the Season of Chic stamp set in Petal Pink Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper. I stamped the sentiment from the Season of Chic stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink over the shell image. I cut the sentiment out using the solid shell die from the Chic Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I tied a double bow using Linen Thread and adhered it to the bottom of the shell using a Glue dot. I added a few Pearl Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Season of Chic stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the detailed shell image from the Season of Chic stamp set in Petal Pink Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper, on either side of the sentiment. I adhered a strip of Texture Chic DSP to the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Petal Pink mat and then to the inside of the Sahara Sand card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the shell image from the Season of Chic stamp set in Petal Pink Ink on the envelope front. I added a shell I cut out from the Distressed Gold paper using the Chic Dies. I adhered a panel of Texture Chic DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for visiting by my blog today, I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Now that you’ve seen my card, be sure to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects.

Stampin’ Up Splendid Thoughts Sneak Peek

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone’s weekend going?

Today’s card is one that we will be making at our in person quarterly team meeting today. I’ll be presenting this one to the rest of my team members via zoom. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Splendid Thoughts Bundle along with the Splendid Day Specialty Designer Series Paper and the Stampin’ Up! Charming Sentiments Photopolymer Stamp Set for my card today.

I started by stamping the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Splendid Thoughts Cling Stamp Set in Evening Evergreen Ink on the top of a panel of Splendid Day DSP. I adhered the panel of DSP to a Pear Pizzazz mat. I adhered the layered panel to a Soft Sea Foam card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Using my Splendid Stems Dies, I cut the leaf dies from the panels of Evening Evergreen, Pear Pizzazz, Rich Razzleberry and Soft Sea Foam cardstock. I cut the half circle die from the strip of Splendid Day DSP.

I adhered the leaf dies to the back of the half circle die using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the collage to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I tied a small bow using the Soft Sea Foam Seam Binding Ribbon and adhered it to the garden dish using a Glue Dot.

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Charming Sentiments stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the leaf images from the Splendid Thoughts stamp set in Evening Evergreen and Pear Pizzazz Ink on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Pear Pizzazz mat and then to the inside of the Soft Sea Foam card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped 2 of the leaf images from the Splendid Thoughts stamp set on the envelope front in Evening Evergreen and Pear Pizzazz once full strength and once stamped off. I adhered a panel of the Splendid Day DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card. This bundle will be available for purchase July 1st from the July-December 2022 Mini Catalog. If you are interested in joining and getting this set early, contact me. I’d be happy to talk to you. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Simply Fabulous Fun Fold Video Tutorial

Good Friday morning my stamping friends welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Are you ready for the weekend? I hope you are making some fun plans. I have to work on Saturday and Sunday is our quarterly in person team meeting.

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! Simply Fabulous Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Stampin’ Up! Go To Greetings Cling Stamp Set and the Butterfly Kisses 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my card today.

This is the template for the card as promised.

Once I cut and folded the Basic White cardstock as in the above picture, I adhered panels of Butterfly Kisses DSP to Fresh Freesia mats. I adhered the layered panel to the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the stem/leaf image from the Simply Fabulous stamp set in Parakeet Party Ink. I stamped the sentiment from the Go To Greetings stamp set in Parakeet Party Ink on the top of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Fresh Freesia mat and then to the Basic White card base. I added Fun Flower Resin Shapes to the top of the stamped stem image.

I fussy cut multiple butterflies from the Butterfly Kisses DSP using my Paper Snips. I adhered the butterflies to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the Basic White panel for the inside, I stamped the stem/leaf image from the Simply Fabulous stamp set in Parakeet Party Ink. I stamped the sentiment from the Go To Greetings stamp set in Parakeet Party Ink on the top of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Fresh Freesia mat and then to the inside of the Basic White card base. I adhered the fussy cut butterflies on the inside using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the stems and leaves from the Simply Fabulous stamp set in Parakeet Party Ink. I stamped the hearts on the stems in Calypso Coral Ink. I adhered a panel of Butterfly Kisses 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 my 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.

You can also view the video on my YouTube channel Here. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Brewed For You For The Card Concepts

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends.  I hope everyone is having a wonderful week. We’ve had a beautiful one here so far.

It’s time for another inspiration challenge for The Card Concepts. The inspiration photo is Make It Masculine. We all know the struggle with masculine cards. Here is my card that was inspired from the challenge photo.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Brewed For You Bundle along with the He’s The Man Designer Series Paper for my Clean and Layered Card. I was inspired by the Colors from the Inspiration Photo.

I hope you will take a moment to visit The Card Concepts and join us for our challenge #177.  How are you inspired by this photo?

My design is from Inspire. Create Challenge #118.

I started by adhering a panel of He’s The Man DSP to an Early Espresso card base. I adhered another strip of He’s The Man DSP to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered one of the die cut pieces from He’s The Man DSP to the card front. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Brewed For You Photopolymer Stamp Set on the bottom of the die in Early Espresso Ink. I cut a panel of Crushed Curry cardstock using the largest circle from Beautiful Shapes Dies. I adhered the circle to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the beer mug image from the Brewed For You stamp set in Early Espresso Ink. I stamped the fill image in Crushed Curry Ink. I stamped the foam image from the Brewed For You stamp set in Soft Suede Ink. I cut the beer mug and foam image out using the Brewed Dies. I adhered the foam and mug to the Crushed Curry circle using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Brewed For You stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the bubble image from the Brewed For You stamp set in Soft Suede Ink around the sentiment. I adhered a strip of He’s The Man DSP to the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Crushed Curry mat and then to the inside of the Early Espresso card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the beer mug from Brewed For You stamp set on the envelope front the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of He’s The Man 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! Sending Charming Smiles

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone’s weekend going? I worked all day yesterday and was it ever busy. I’m working at the dog bakery today and it’s supposed to be another beautiful day, so I’m guessing it’ll be a busy one. Hopefully lots of pups will come is so we can give them treats.

I have a clean and simple card today. I’m trying to come up with designs for my card class this week. I have a couple new ladies coming and I’m not sure of their style. I’m trying to keep things a little on the simpler side. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Sending Smiles Bundle along with the Stampin’ Up! Charming Sentiments Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Subtle 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by adhering a panel of Subtle DSP to a Petal Pink card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the stem images from the Sending Smiles stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink. I stamped the flower images from the Sending Smiles stamp set in Petal Pink Ink on the double stem. I stamped the flower centers in So Saffron Ink.

I cut the panel out using the 2nd largest Stitched Rectangle Dies. I stamped the sentiment from the Charming Sentiments stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink on the top of the panel. On a scrap of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the small flower image from the Sending Smiles stamp set in Orchid Oasis Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper. I cut the flower out using my Sending dies. I adhered the cut flower to the smaller stem using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the stamped panel to a panel of Mint Macaron cardstock on an angle using Stampin’ Seal.

I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Charming Sentiments stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the stem image from the Sending Smiles stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the flower images from the Sending Smiles stamp set in Petal Pink Ink and the flower centers in So Saffron Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Mint Macaron mat and then to the inside of the Petal Pink card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the stems from the Sending Smiles stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink on the envelope front. I stamped the flower images from the Sending Smiles stamp set in Orchid Oasis, stamped off once on scrap paper, and Petal Pink Ink on the stems. I stamped the flower centers in So Saffron Ink. I adhered a panel of Subtle 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! Cottage Rose Birthday

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone’s weekend going? It’s been warm, humid and stormy here so far.

Today’s card is another version of yesterdays. I was playing around with colors for my rose, and I couldn’t decide which one I liked better, so I made 2 different cards that are similar in color. I personally think I like the Highland Heather a little better. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Cottage Rose Bundle along with the Stampin’ Up! Inspired Thoughts Cling Stamp Set, Flowering Fields Designer Series Paper and the Heart & Home Designer Series Paper for my card today.

This was the inspiration for my colors yesterday and today. This is one of my gardens in the front of my house.

I started by adhering a panel of Flowering Fields DSP to a Highland Heather card base. I adhered a panel of Heart & Home DSP to the center of the card front.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the large rose image from the Stampin’ Up! Cottage Rose Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image using my Highland Heather and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image out using my Cottage Flowers Dies. I adhered a piece of Soft Succulent 1/2″ Satin Shimmer Ribbon to the card front with a small amount of Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the rose over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Cottage Rose stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I cut the sentiment out using my Sending Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Elegant Faceted Gems to the card front.

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 leaf image from the Cottage Rose stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on either side of the panel. I colored the leaves in using my Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Soft Succulent mat and then to the inside of the Highland Heather card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the rose image from the Cottage Rose stamp set in Tuxedo Black on the envelope front. I colored the image using my Highland Heather and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of Flowering Fields 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! Sending Smiles Fun Fold Friday Video Tutorial

Good Friday morning my stamping friends welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Are you ready for the long Memorial Day weekend? I hope you are making some fun plans. We’re planning a small picnic for Monday afternoon.

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! Sending Smiles Bundle along with the Stampin’ Up! Charming Sentiment Photopolymer Stamp Set, the Vellum Layering Designs and Design A Daydream Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I cut a panel of Design A Daydream DSP using the largest square from the Stylish Shapes Dies. I adhered the panel to a Petal Pink mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to a Vellum Layering Designs card front using Stampin’ Seal.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the 2 stem images from the Stampin’ Up! Sending Smiles Photopolymer Stamp Set in Mint Macaron Ink. I stamped 3 of the flower images from Sending Smiles stamp set in Fresh Freesia and Petal Pink Inks and the flower centers in Daffodil Delight Ink. I cut the stem and flower images using my Sending Dies. I cut the detailed sentiment from the Sending Dies from a panel of Design A Daydream DSP. I cut the bubble die from a panel of Mint Macaron cardstock. I adhered the detailed sentiment to the bubble sentiment using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered the 2 stems to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the flowers on top of the stems using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the sentiment across the bottom of the stems using Stampin’ Dimensionals. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Sending Smiles stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink. I cut the sentiment out using the Sending Dies and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few 2021-2023 In-Color Opal Rounds to the card front.

Fo the inside, I scored a panel of Mint Macaron cardstock at 2 1/8″, 4 1/4′ & 6 3/8″. I centered the 4th largest Deckled Rectangle Die on the panel and cut it out. The center score line is a mountain fold, and the 2 side score lines are valley folds. I adhered 2 panels of Design A Daydream DSP to either side of the Mint Macaron panel. On the Basic White Thick card base, I stamped the sentiment from the Charming Sentiments stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink in the center of the panel. I stamped the 2 stem images from the Sending Smiles stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink on the bottom of the panel below the sentiment. I stamped the flower images from the Sending Smiles stamp set on the stems in Fresh Freesia and Petal Pink Inks and the flower centers in Daffodil Delight Ink. I then scored and folded the Basic White Thick card base. I adhered the Mint Macaron panel to the inside of the Basic White Thick card base using Stampin’ Seal +. I added a couple Brushed Brass Butterflies to the inside of the card.

Here is a photo of how the card will look from the top.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the flower and stem image from the Sending Smiles stamp set in Mint Macaron, Petal Pink and Fresh Freesia Inks. I adhered a panel of Design A Daydream 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 my 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! Brewed For You for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends. Welcome to Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop. It’s the 2nd Tuesday of the month so that means Blog Hop Day!! If you are starting with me, be sure to hop around to see everyone’s handsome projects. If you’ve hopped over from Amy Koenders’ blog, welcome to my blog and thank you for stopping by. The theme this month is “For The Men/Boys”.  We can interpret this however we want.  My son’s birthday is next month so I made him a card. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Brewed For You Bundle along with the He’s The Man Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by embossing a Sahara Sand card front using the Timber 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered a strip of He’s The Man DSP to the side of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the card front to a Sahara Sand card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the beer mug and foam images from the Stampin’ Up! Brewed For you Photopolymer Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink twice. I stamped the fill image from the Brewed For You stamp set over the beer mug images in Crushed Curry Ink. I cur the images out using the Brewed Dies. I stamped the sentiment and bubble image from the Brewed For You stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the Basic White panel. I cut the sentiment out using the All That Dies.

I adhered the first beer mug and foam die cuts using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the second beer mug and foam die cuts overlapping the first one using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Brewed for You stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the beer mug, foam and bubble images from the Brewed for You stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the fill image in Crushed Curry Ink over the mug image. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Sahara Sand mat and then to the inside of the Sahara Sand card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the beer mug, foam and bubble images from Brewed for You stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the envelope front. I stamped the beer fill image in Crushed Curry Ink over the stamped mug image. I adhered a panel of He’s The Man DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for visiting by my blog today, I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Now that you’ve seen my card, be sure to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects.
