Stampin’ Up Meant To Be

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  Happy 1st Day Of Spring!!!

There are less than 2 weeks left for Sale-A-Bration, yikes!  If there are still items you wanted to get, don’t wait.  Things are selling out.  They’ve added a 3rd release, you can see it below.

For today’s card I have a real quick and easy card for you.  Take a look.

I started by cutting the rectangles.  I used the 3 middle Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies along with my Big Shot and cut the largest in Lovely Lipstick cardstock, the middle one in Flirty Flamingo cardstock and the smallest one in All My Love Designer Series Paper.  Once I cut them out I layered them inside one another.

As you can see, this is a very flat card since they are inside and not layered on top of one another.  I adhered the rectangles to a Whisper White card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I just love how the stitching looks on all the rectangles.

On a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Meant To Be Stamp Set in Versamark Ink and immediately sprinkled it with my Lovely Lipstick Embossing Powder.  I heat set it using my Heat Tool then cut the circle out using my Big Shot and the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.  I also cut a scalloped circle from the Layering Circles Framelits Dies and adhered the stitched circle to it using Snail.  I adhered the circle to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and adhered a small Flirty Flamingo bow made from the All My Love Ribbon Combo Pack.  I adhered the card front to a Thick Whisper White card base.

On the inside I stamped the single flower from Stampin’ Up Forever Lovely Stamp Set in Flirty Flamingo Ink.  I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set in Lovely Lipstick Ink in the center.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the flower from the Forever Lovely stamp set on the envelope front.  I adhered a piece of All My Love DSP to the envelope flap.

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

Stampin’ Up Hello Cupcake

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s weekend?  We’re back to the cool weather here after the tease last Thursday and Friday.  That really gave me spring fever.  I’m ready for the warm weather.

For today’s card I used one of the cute Sale-A-Brations sets, Hello Cupcake Photopolymer Distinktive Stamp Set.

The colors for my card today went along with the ‘Just Us Girls‘ color challenge #479. Be sure to stop by to play along. Here are their colors.

The sketch I used went along with the Paper Craft Crew challenge #329.  Be sure to stop by to see what everyone has made and to play along.  Here is their sketch.

I started by stamping the cupcake image from the Hello Cupcake stamp set (FREE Sale-A-Bration item), using my Stamparatus, in Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight and Gorgeous Grape Inks on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I then fussy cut the image out using my Paper Snips and set it aside.

On a Whisper White card front I stamped the watermark image from the Stampin’ Up Love What You Do Stamp Set in Daffodil Delight Ink, stamping off once, a couple of times.  I adhered a piece of the Brights 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper, that I had cut out using my Big Shot and the largest oval from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies, over the watermark image.  I stamped the sentiment from the Hello Cupcake stamp set in Gorgeous Grape Ink on a scrap of Whisper White cardstock.  Again using my Big Shot, I cut the sentiment out with the second largest oval from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies making sure the sentiment was to the right of the oval.  I took a strip of Bermuda Bay cardstock, which I had made a banner from and ran it through my Big Shot using the Scattered Sequins Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (FREE Sale-A-Bration item), and adhered it under the sentiment oval using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the sentiment oval to the card front on top of the DSP oval, off centering it,  using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added some of the Silver Metallic Thread behind the cupcake image and adhered the cupcake to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a Glimmer Enamel Dot to the sentiment.  I adhered the card front to a Gorgeous Grape card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the cupcake image from the Hello Cupcake stamp set on a Whisper White panel stamping it the same as I did for the card front except I stamped it off twice to get a very light image.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Itty Bitty Birthday Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink over the cupcake image.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Gorgeous Grape card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the cupcake image from the Hello Cupcake stamp set the same as I did for the card front on the front of the envelope.  I adhered a piece of the Brights 6 X 6 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. Don’t forget, you have less than 2 weeks before Sale-A-Bration ends.   If you have your eye on one of the gorgeous stamp sets or something from the additional items, grab it before it’s too late.  Happy stamping!!

Stampin’ Up Vertical Greetings Z-Fold Card

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers.  How was your week?  Is anyone doing anything fun this weekend?

For today’s card I made a Z-Fold card.  I just love doing this type of card.  I used the Stampin’ Up Vertical Greetings Stamp Set.  I also used some of the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper that is a FREE item with Sale-A-Bration.   Just a little reminder, Sale-A-Bration will be ending on March 31, 2019.  If you haven’t gotten the free items that you would like, now’s the time to get that order placed.  Don’t miss out on getting all the free goodies you want.  Here is today’s card.

I started with a Thick Very Vanilla card base scored at 4 1/4″ and 2 1/8″.  I stamped one of the potted plant images from the Vertical Greetings stamp set on the front of the card base.  I colored the image in using my Balmy Blue, Early Espresso, Grapefruit Grove and Lemon Lime Twist Stampin’ Write Markers.  This is a great way to stamp an image using multiple colors on the same stamp.  I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set next to the image in Early Espresso Ink.

On a scrap piece of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the squirrel and bird images from the Stampin’ Up Sitting Pretty Stamp Set in Basic Gray, Smoky Slate and Balmy Blue Inks.  Using my Big Shot I cut the squirrel, bird and park bench out with my Pretty Park Framelits Dies.  I cut the park bench out using Wood Textures Designer Series Paper so that it had the wooden look.

I adhered the squirrel and bird to the park bench using Glue Dots and adhered the park bench to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Using my Butterfly Duet Punch I punched out some of the butterflies from the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper.  I adhered a couple to the card front using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I adhered a panel of the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On a small panel of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up Itty Bitty Birthday Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to the left of the inside so that it wouldn’t show when the card was closed.  I adhered some more butterflies to the card base using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals, Glue Dots and Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I stamped the potted plant image from the Vertical Greetings stamp set on the envelope front the same as I did for the card front.  I adhered a piece of Botanical Butterfly 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 and have a great weekend!!

Stampin’ Up Lovely Lattice White Wash Technique

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  How has your week started out?

For today’s card I’ve done the White Wash Technique for you.  I haven’t done this in a while and I just love how it turns out.  Here’s my card.

I’ve played along with a few challenges for today’s card.  1st is ‘Just Us Girls‘ word week challenge # 477.  Be sure to stop by to play along and see what everyone has made.  Here is their challenge.  This one was pretty easy and left a wide variety.

The next one is Paper Craft Crew Simple Stamping Theme Challenge #328.  I don’t do simple that often, but I really enjoyed it with this card.  This one was a little harder since I’m so used to using multiple layers.  Here’s their challenge.

Last was the Sunday Stamps Natures Hues challenge #199.  They had a some gorgeous colors to work with.  Be sure to stop by and see what everyone has made and play along with their challenge.  Here are their colors.

I started by stamping the large image from the  Stampin’ Up Lovely Lattice Stamp Set, (Free Sale-A-Bration item), in Versamark Ink on a panel of Crumb Cake cardstock.  I immediately sprinkled it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat set it using my Heat Tool.  Using my Aqua Painter I colored the flowers with Craft Whisper White Ink and let it dry throughly.  I actually let it go overnight to make sure it was good and dry.

Once it was dry, using my Blender Pens I added color to the flowers starting darker in the middle and blending it out to the edges.  I used Flirty Flamingo, Gorgeous Grape and Pacific Point Inks for my flowers and Coastal Cabana Ink for my leaves.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Well Said Stamp Set in Gorgeous Grape Ink on a strip of Whisper White cardstock and made a banner out of it.  I adhered the banner to the left side if the card front using Snail.  I adhered the card front to a Flirty Flamingo card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered a Gorgeous Grape Glitter Enamel Dot to the sentiment banner and a few Clear Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Well Said stamp set in Gorgeous Grape Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the smaller flowers from the Lovely Lattice stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the corners and colored them in using my Blender Pen with the same colors as I did on the card front.

I finished my card by decorating a Medium Craft Envelope.  Unfortunately these envelopes are no longer available, but it seemed to go beautifully with my card.  I stamped the large flower image from the Lovely Lattice stamp set on the front of the envelope and colored it in the same as I did for the card front with my Blender Pen.  I stamped the smaller flowers from the same stamp set on the envelope flap and colored them in the same as I did for the inner liner.

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

Stampin’ Up Birthday Statements for Inspire.Create

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers.  How was your week?  Are you ready for the weekend?  Is anyone going to do anything fun?  I’m hoping to get some craft time in after working today and Saturday.

For today’s card I used the Stampin’ Up Birthday Statements Stamp Set.  I love the large image that makes the whole card.  I don’t know about you, but I’m ready for spring and I seem to be using more springy colors lately.  Here’s my card for today.

I joined in with the Inspire. Create. colour challenge #037.  Be sure to stop by to see the projects and to play along.  Here are their beautiful pastel colors.

I started with a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the image from Birthday Statements in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the image in using my Daffodil Delight, Mint Macaron and Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Markers.  Using my Big Shot I cut the image out with the 3rd largest Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies.  Then using the 2nd largest Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies I cut out a Daffodil Delight mat.  I adhered the artwork to the Daffodil Delight mat using Snail.

I adhered Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the matted artwork and swirled Silver Metallic Thread so that it was just overlapping the sides and peeking out.  I then adhered the artwork to a Pool Party card base.  I stamped the small sentiment from the Birthday Statements stamp set on a scrap of Whisper White cardstock in Mint Macaron Ink and punched it out using the Classic Label Punch.  I adhered the punched sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added some Daffodil Delight Gingham Gala Adhesive Back Sequins to the artwork and 2 Mint Macaron Faceted Dots to the punched sentiment.

On the inside I wanted to match the flowers the best I could to the card front image.  I found similar flowers in the Stampin’ Up Lovely Latice Stamp Set (FREE Sale-A-Bration item).  I stamped 3 flowers in each corner of a Whisper White panel in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored them in with my Daffodil Delight, Mint Macaron and Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Itty Bitty Birthday Stamp Set in Mint Macaron Ink in the center of the Whisper White panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Pool Party card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped 3 of the small flower images from the Lovely Lattice stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front and the envelope flap.  I colored them in the same as I did on the card.

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

Stampin’ Up Life Is Grand Quick and Easy Card

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers.  Only one more day till the weekend.  Is anyone making any plans?

For today’s card I have a very quick and easy card for you.  I let the Designer Series Paper do most of the work for me.  Take a look.

I started with a Pineapple Punch card front and adhered a piece of How Sweet It Is Designer Series Paper to it using Snail.  I wrapped a piece of Coastal Cabana/Granny Apple Green 3/8″ Reversible Ribbon around the card front and tied a knot on the side.  I adhered the card front to a Thick Whisper White card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
On a piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from Stampin’ Up Life Is Grand Cling Stamp Set in Granny Apple Green Ink.  Using my Big Shot I cut the sentiment out with the largest oval from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I added a couple Granny Apple Green Glitter Enamel Dots to the stitched oval.

On the inside on a Whisper White cardstock panel I stamped the birthday sentiment from the Life Is Grand stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink in the center.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  To decorate the inside a little I added a panel of How Sweet It Is DSP.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the lollipops from the Stampin’ Up Sweetest Thing Stamp Set in Granny Apple Green ink on the envelope front.  I colored them in using my Coastal Cabana, Gorgeous Grape, Granny Apple Green, Melon Mambo and Pineapple Punch Stampin’ Write Markers.  I adhered a piece of How Sweet It Is DSP to the envelope flap.

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

Stampin’ Up Incredible Like You

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

For today’s card I used the Stampin’ Up Incredible Like You Photopolymer Stamp Set.  I love the sentiments in this set and the floral image  is so pretty.  Take a look.

For my card I also played along with 3 challenges.  The first is Just Add Ink Challenge #445.  Be sure to stop by to see what everyone had made.  Their challenge was Just Add Embossing, which I did.  I heat embossed and I used an embossing folder.

Next I played along with Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge # 309.  Be sure to stop by and play along with their challenge and see what everyone has made.  Theirs is a color challenge, and the colors are beautiful together.
Last is What Will You Stamp challenge #208.  Theirs is a specific stamp set you must use.  Be sure to stop by and play along with them too.

I started by stamping the sentiment from Incredible Like You stamp set in Pool Party Ink on a small piece of Whisper White cardstock.  I immediately sprinkled it with Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat set it with my Heat Tool.  You can emboss in any color when you use clear embossing powder.  I then stamped the stems from the same stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink around the bottom of the sentiment, then stamped the flowers, from the same stamp set, on the stems in Highland Heather Ink.  Using my Big Shot and the oval from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies, I cut the sentiment out and set it aside.
On a panel of Pool Party cardstock I stamped the flowers from the Incredible Like You stamp set in Pool Party Ink.  I stamped the inside of the flower stamping off once then stamped the second part of the flower full strength Pool Party Ink.  I stamped the leaf image from the same stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink randomly around.  I ran the Pool Party panel through my Big Shot using the Subtle Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder to give it a little more texture.

I adhered the card front to a Highland Heather mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I wrapped a piece of 3/8″ Silver Metallic Edge Ribbon around the center of the card front. I adhered the stitched oval with the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and adhered the card front to a Soft Sea Foam card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Clear Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the stems and flowers from the Incredible Like You stamp set in Soft Sea Foam and Highland Heather Inks on the bottom of a Whisper White cardstock panel.  I stamped the larger flower in the center of the Whisper White panel in Pool Party Ink, stamping the inside colored part off twice and the second part of the flower stamping off once.  I stamped the sentiment from Stampin’ Up Itty Bitty Birthday Stamp Set in Highland Heather Ink over the top of the flower.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Highland Heather mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Soft Sea Foam card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the stems and flowers from the Incredible Like You stamp set on the bottom of the envelope front the same as I did on my card.  I stamped the larger flower image in Pool Party Ink on the envelope flap.

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

Paper Pumpkin is turning six and we want to celebrate with you! After all, we could not have shared all these years of creativity if it weren’t for our subscribers.
To celebrate this fun occasion and to thank everyone who supports Paper Pumpkin month after month, we’re offering a specially-designed March kit and a FREE STAMP SET. Oh, yes. You read that right. In March, you will receive TWO stamp sets with your Paper Pumpkin kit.

There has never been a better time to give Paper Pumpkin a try. And because it’s our sixth birthday celebration, we’ll be pulling out all the stops. You’ll get an adorable kit, a special box, and most importantly, you’ll get TWO stamp sets instead of one.
$20 for a Paper Pumpkin kit is always a steal, but in March the deal is even better! There has never been a better time for you to join Paper Pumpkin.

Because it’s our birthday, we decided to create a kit that is perfect for making birthday cards!
The March kit features eight full-sized, mailable cards
Coordinating colors are Basic Black, Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight, Flirty Flamingo, and Poppy Parade
This kit has an element that is sure to “pop”!
The FREE stamp set is even bigger and better than your typical Paper Pumpkin stamp set and can be used on a variety of crafting projects.

A subscriber must have an active subscription by March 10, 2019 in order to receive the March kit.
The FREE stamp set coordinates with the March kit but it is not needed to complete the projects.
Supplies may be limited toward the end of the subscription period, so DON’T WAIT.
