Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Friendship 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’s blog, thank you for stopping by. This week we have Sketch Challenge. Here is my card using this week’s Sketch.

Stampin' Up! Beauty of Friendship Birthday 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Friendship Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Neutrals 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper, Stampin’ Up! Charming Sentiments Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Seasonal Labels Dies for my card today.

Here’s our sketch for this week.

Stampin' Up! Beauty of Friendship Birthday 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by adhering a panel of the Neutrals DSP to a Soft Suede card base.

Stampin' Up! Beauty of Friendship Birthday 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the tree trunk image from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set in Soft Suede Ink. I stamped the solid image of the treetop from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set in Crushed Curry Ink and the detailed treetop image in Pumpkin Pie Ink over the Crushed Curry image. I cut the image out using the largest die from the Seasonal Labels Dies.

Stampin' Up! Beauty of Friendship Birthday 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

I adhered the die cut image to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I cut the sentiment out using the smaller die from the Seasonal Labels Dies. I adhered a piece of Crumb Cake Bakers Twine from the Bakers Twine Essential Pack to the artwork using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the sentiment over the twine using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Rustic Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dots to the card front.

Stampin’ Up! Cottage Rose for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. I hope everyone had a great week and you are looking forward to an even better weekend. I’ll be at work both days this weekend.

I’m sorry I missed my Facebook live this past Wednesday. Something came up last minute and we had to leave the house by 4:30, nothing bad though. So since I couldn’t go live this week, I decided to hold onto the card I was going to make and come up with something else quick. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Cottage Rose Fun Fold 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Cottage Rose Bundle along with the Abigail Rose Designer Series Paper for my card today.

Here is a template of my card.

Stampin' Up! Cottage Rose Fun Fold 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

Once I made all my score and cut lines and folded the card, I adhered panels of Abigail Rose DSP to the front and sides of the card base. On a panel of Crumb Cake cardstock, I stamped the large rose image form the Stampin’ Up! Cottage Rose Cling Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink. I colored the rose using my Watercolor Pencils. I colored the leaves using the Old Olive Watercolor Pencil. For the rose, I first colored it with my White Watercolor Pencil then I went over the highlighted areas with my Flirty Flaming Watercolor Pencil. I cut the rose out using my Cottage Flowers Dies, I also cut the detailed flowers from a panel of Petal Pink cardstock and the detailed leaves from a panel of Old Olive cardstock.

Stampin' Up! Cottage Rose Fun Fold 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

I adhered the detailed flowers and leaves to the back of the large rose image using Glue Dots. I did leave some of the solid pieces in the detailed flowers. I adhered the rose collage to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Cottage Rose Fun Fold 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Cottage Rose stamp set in Soft Suede Ink. I cut the sentiment out using the 2nd smallest die from the Stitched Rectangle Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the bottom of the panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

Stampin' Up! Cottage Rose Fun Fold 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside, I stamped the sentiments from the Cottage Rose stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on a panel of Abigail Rose DSP. I adhered the stamped panel to a Petal Pink mat and then to the inside of the Pear Pizzazz card base.

Stampin' Up! Cottage Rose Fun Fold 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To finish my card, I decorated a Very Vanilla Medium Envelope. I stamped the leaf image from the Cottage Rose stamp set in Old Olive Ink along the bottom front of the envelope. I adhered a panel of Abigail Rose DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Kindest Gnomes Birthday

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends and welcome to the weekend. Does anyone have plans? I’ll be at work all day today, but it turns out I have off tomorrow. I’m sure I’ll be staying inside no matter what. We’re supposed to be in the 100’s Sunday. My tomato plants are thriving with this heat, and I’m only supposed to water on odd days. I am giving them just a little water on even days and really soaking them on the odd days. We’re in a bit of a drought here so the water company has asked for us to conserve water and only water on odd days. We haven’t had any rain here for almost a month now and with the heat everything is drying out, it actually looks like fall on some of my neighbors’ lawns. They are covered with leaves that have fallen from the trees because of lack of rain.

Today’s card is for my neighbor, co-worker and friend. I hired her at the hardware store over 20 years ago, then I just happen to buy the house next to where she was living 29 years ago. We’ve been through a lot together. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Kindest Gnomes Birthday 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Kindest Gnomes Bundle along with the Happy Forest Friends Designer Series Paper and the Stampin’ Up! Very Best Occasions Cling Stamp Set for my card today.

Stampin' Up! Kindest Gnomes Birthday 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by adhering a panel of Happy Forest Friends DSP to a Sahara Sand card base. I adhered another panel of Happy Forest Friends DSP to a Sahara Sand mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Kindest Gnomes Birthday 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the images from the Stampin’ Up! Kindest Gnomes Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the images using my Calypso Coral, Crumb Cake, Ivory, Night of Navy, Pale papaya, Petal Pink, Soft Suede, Sweet Sorbet and Tahitian Tide Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image out using the Gnome Dies. I adhered the die cut images to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Kindest Gnomes Birthday 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Calypso Coral cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Kindest Gnomes stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I cut the sentiment out using the smallest die from the Tailored Made Tags Dies. I threaded a piece of White Baker’s Twine from the Baker’s Twine Essential Pack, through the tag and tied a bow. I adhered the tag to the card front in the gnome’s hand using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Fine Sparkle Adhesive-Backed Gems and Brushed Brass Butterflies to the card front.

Stampin' Up! Kindest Gnomes Birthday 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Very Best Occasions stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the gnome image from the Kindest Gnomes stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom of the panel. I colored the image using my Crumb Cake, Ivory, Petal Pink, Soft Suede, Sweet Sorbet and Tahitian Tide Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Sweet Sorbet mat and the to the inside of the Sahara Sand card base.

Stampin' Up! Kindest Gnomes Birthday 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the images from the Kindest Gnomes stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and colored them the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of Happy Forest Friends DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Hippest Hippos Fun Fold with Video Tutorial

Good Friday morning my stamping friends welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Has anyone made any plans for the weekend yet? I’ll be working all day tomorrow and Sunday again.

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! Hippest Hippos 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Sale-a-bration Hippest Hippos Cling Stamp Set along with the Sale-a-bration Hippo Dies, Stampin’ Up! Alphabest Bundle and the Subtle 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my card today.

Solid lines are score lines, dashed lines are cut lines

I started by scoring a Petal Pink card base at 1″, 2″, 3″, 5 1/4″, 6 1/4″ & 7 1/4″ along the 8 1/4″ side. I turned the panel so the 5 1/2″ side was along the edge of my trimmer and set the 8 1/4″ edge at the 1″ mark. I cut from the 1″ score line to the 3″ score line and then from the 5 1/4″ score line to the 7 1/4″ score line. I moved the card base to the 2″ line on my trimmer and repeated the cuts. I turned the cardstock around so the other 8 1/4″ edge was at the 1″ mark on my trimmer and cut the same on that side at the 1′ & 2″ marks. I folded the card base as above with the mountain and valley folds.

Stampin' Up! Hippest Hippos 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I adhered the Subtle DSP panels to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I cut a panel of Pool Party cardstock using the largest square from the Stylish Shapes Dies and embossed it using the Into The Clouds Embossing Folder. From a panel of Rose Gold Specialty Paper I cut the bucket die from the Hippo Dies. I cut the top of the umbrella and hat die from the Hippo Dies from scraps of the Soft Sea Foam Subtle DSP.

Stampin' Up! Hippest Hippos 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the ballerina hippo image from the Hippest Hippos stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image using my Flirty Flamingo, Gray Granite and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image out using the Hippo Dies. I also cut out the umbrella die from the panel of Basic White cardstock. I adhered the umbrella top to the Basic White umbrella using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On a scrap of Petal Pink Subtle DSP, I stamped the tutu part of the hippo image and fussy cut it using my Paper Snips. I adhered the tutu to the hippo image using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the hippo to the Pool Party panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the bucket below the hippo using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the hat to the hippo using a Stampin’ Dimensional. I adhered the Pool Party panel to the center of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the umbrella to the card front using a Stampin’ Dimensional.

Stampin' Up! Hippest Hippos 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the background image from the Stampin’ Up! Alphabest Photopolymer Stamp Set in Soft Sea Foam Ink. I stamped the letters and #1 from the Alphabest stamp set on the background images in Gray Granite Ink. I punched the letters out using the Best Label Punch. I adhered the letters to the side panel of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the #1 to the hippos hand using a Stampin’ Dimensional. I added a few Adhesive-Backed Seasonal Sequins to the card front.

Stampin' Up! Hippest Hippos 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the back of the card base, I adhered the panels of Subtle DSP to the sides and top of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Hippest Hippos on the top of the panel in Gray Granite Ink. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Nuts About Squirrels Photopolymer Stamp Set in Gray Granite Ink below the 1st sentiment. I stamped the hippo image from the Hippest Hippos stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom of the panel. I colored the image in using my Flirty Flamingo, Gray Granite and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Soft Sea Foam mat and then to the back of the card base. I added a few more of the Adhesive-Backed Seasonal Sequins to the card back.

Stampin' Up! Hippest Hippos 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the ballerina hippo image from the Hippest Hippos stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I colored the image the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of Subtle DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Soft Seedlings CAS Thinking of You

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. I hope your weekend is going well. I’ll be at the dog bakery all day today, hopefully getting to give visiting puppies treats.

For today’s card I did the Baby Wipe Technique. For me, fall cards are perfect for this technique. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Soft Seedlings Cling Stamp Set along with the Stampin’ Up! Very Best Occasions Cling Stamp Set for my card today.

I started by taking a baby wipe and folding it in half and placing it in one of my stamp cases. I added drops of Crushed Curry, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, Rich Razzleberry and Sweet Sorbet Ink Refills, making sure to fill in most of the open spaces. The ink drops will run into each other once you press you stamp into it.

I stamped the leaf image from the Soft Seedlings stamp set on the top of a Basic White card front. I stamped the sentiment from the Soft Seedlings stamp set on the bottom of the panel in Tuxedo Black Ink.

I adhered the Basic White card front to a Pumpkin Pie mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to a Basic White Thick card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I tied a small bow using the Black Baker’s Twine from the Baker’s Twine Essential Pack and adhered it to the leaf stem using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Very Best Occasions stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I reinked the leaf image from the Soft Seedlings stamp set using the same inked baby wipe and stamped the leaf image on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Pumpkin Pie mat and then to the inside of the Basic White Thick card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the leaf image from the Soft Seedlings stamp set using the same inked baby wipe that I used for the card. you can see that you can stamp over and over and get different images each time.

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

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.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Charming Sentiments Bundle along with the Stampin’ Up! Quiet Meadow Cling Stamp Set and the Butterfly Kisses 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper.

I started by scoring and folding the Fresh Freesia card base as listed below. I adhered a panel of Butterfly Kisses DSP to a Night of Navy mat. I adhered the layered panels to the Fresh Freesia card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Charming Sentiments Photopolymer Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink. I cut the sentiment out using the coordinating die from the Sentiment Silhouettes Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Rhinestones Basic Jewels to the card front.

I adhered 2 more panels of the Butterfly Kisses DSP to the inside of the card base. I scored & folded 3 strips of Night of Navy cardstock. I adhered the 6 square panels of Butterfly Kisses DSP to the inner 2 sections of the strips using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the strips to the inside of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue on the 2 outside sections of the Night of Navy strips lining the center fold up with the fold line of the card base. I fussy cut multiple butterflies from the Butterfly Kisses DSP using my Paper Snips. I adhered the butterflies to the inside of the card base using Glue Dots.

I stamped the sentiment from the Charming Sentiments stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on the top of a Basic White Panel. I stamped the tall floral image from the Quiet Meadow stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom of the panel. I colored the image using my Fresh Freesia and Parakeet Party Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the splatter image from the Quiet Meadow stamp set in Fresh Freesia Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper, around the floral image. I adhered 2 of the fussy cut butterflies from the Butterfly Kisses DSP to the panel using Glue Dots. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Night of Navy mat and then to the back of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the floral image from the Quiet Meadow stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I colored the image using my Fresh Freesia and Parakeet Party Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of Butterfly Kisses DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! He’s All That Birthday

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend? Did anyone do anything fun?

A while back my neighbor asked me to make invitations for her husband’s 80th birthday party. I finally got around to making a sample to see if she liked it, but the sample is the birthday card that I’m going to give him. The invitations do not have ribbon or embellishments on them. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! He’s All That Bundle along with the He’s The Man Designer Series Paper and the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder for my card today.

I started by embossing a Sahara Sand card front using the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the embossed panel to a Sahara Sand card bae using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered 2 panels of He’s The Man DSP to Early Espresso mats. I adhered the smaller layered panel to the longer layered panel using Stampin’ Seal. I wrapped a piece of Early Espresso 1/4″ Faux Suede Trim around the layered panels and tied a knot. I adhered the layered panels to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the image from the Stampin’ Up! He’s All That Cling Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink. I cut the image out using the All That Dies. I sponged Sahara Sand Ink around the edges of the die cut image using a Sponge Dauber. I adhered the die cut image to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Rustic Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Celebrating you Cling Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink on a Basic White panel. I adhered a strip of He’s The Man DSP to the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to an Early Espresso mat and then to the inside of the Sahara Sand card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of He’s The Man DSP to 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! Nature’s Prints Panel Card

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends and welcome to the weekend. I hope you have some fun plans in the works for the weekend.

Today’s card we made at our last Stamping Studio Meeting. After we’re done with the business part of the meeting, we do some Mystery Stamping. My upline Jaimie gives us very vague information, the measurements of the paper we need. She talks us through the process, and we put the card together. The cards all come out differently, but the same. Here’s my card from Mystery Stamping.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Prints Cling Stamp Set for my card today.

I joined in with The Male Room Monochrome Challenge #164.

I started by embossing a Night of Navy card front using the Fern 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the card front to a Night of Navy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On 3 panels of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the fern image from the Nature’s Prints stamp set in Night of Navy Ink randomly on the panels. I adhered the Basic White panels to Smoky Slate mats using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panels to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Night of Navy cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Nature’s Print stamp set in Versamark Ink. I sprinkled it with my White Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I fussy cut the sentiment using my Paper Snips and adhered it to the card front using Glue Dots. I tied a small bow using the Simply Elegant Trim and adhered it by the sentiment using a Glue Dot. I added a few Rhinestones Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Nature’s Prints stamp set in Night of Navy Ink. I stamped the fern image from the Nature’s Prints stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on the sides of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Smoky Slate mat and then to the inside of the Night of Navy card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the fern image from the Nature’s Prints stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of Sun Prints 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!!
