Stampin’ Up! Birthday Cards

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers. How was everyone’s weekend? Hope you were able to do something fun. It warmed up here and I noticed a lot of people already put their Christmas lights up and they lit them already. We always wait until after Thanksgiving and my husband always chooses the coldest day to put them up.

For today I wanted to share some beautiful birthday cards that I received last week from some of my team members. I am part of the best Stampin’ Up! team. Everyone on it is always so warm and welcoming, it’s such an awesome group.

I received this gorgeous card from my Team Leader Amy Koenders. I love these Curvy Dies and the cut out leaves are my favorite.

This beautiful card is from my Upline Jaimie Babarczy. I just love her design and the elegant simplicity of her cards.

This beautiful cheery card is from one of my team members Susan Kuenzel. I just love the jar of sunflowers and the background DSP she used.

This colorful Wild Rose card is from my team member Lori Callies. Aren’t those roses beautiful and I love how she colored them.

This beautiful fun card is from my team member Rosie Kean. I just love her design and the DSP that she used for it. It’s all brought together in the center with the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.

My last card was this fun card from my team member Karen Finkle. I just love the seabed background and her design.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you enjoyed seeing some of my team members beautiful work. This is a very talented team that I am on. If you are interested in joining us, I’d be more that happy to talk to you about it. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Winter Dressed To Impress

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone’s weekend going? It warmed up here this weekend a bit. I thought with the weather last week that we were going to get an early winter.

For today’s card I pulled out one of my favorite sets from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog. A coworker asked me to make a good friend of hers a birthday card with shoes on it and she said her favorite colors were blues and purples. Here’s what I came up with.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Dressed To Impress Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Snowflake Splendor Designer Series Paper.

My design is from the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #462. Here is their sketch.

I also played along with the Double ‘D’ Challenge. Their theme is Winter Blues. Here is their mood board.

I started by adhering a panel of Snowflake Splendor DSP to a Misty Moonlight card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I cut a stitched square out using the Stitched Shapes Dies. I stamped the smudge image from the Dressed To Impress stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink, stamped off twice, in the center of the square. On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the shoe image from the Dressed To Impress stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink twice. I colored the shoes in using my Misty Moonlight Stampin’ Blends Markers and cut the images out using my All Dressed Up Dies. I brushed Clear Wink of Stella on the shoes to give them a shimmer. I adhered the bottom shoe to the stitched square using Glue Dots and the top shoe using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut another stitched square out of a panel of Misty Moonlight cardstock using my Stitched Shapes Dies. I stamped the sentiment from Dressed To Impress stamp set in Versamark Ink on the top of the square. I immediately sprinkled it with my White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.

I cut one last stitched square out of a panel of Purple Posy cardstock using my Stitched Shapes Dies. I embossed the panel using my Winter Snow Embossing Folder. I adhered the Purple Posy Square down first using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the Misty Moonlight square next using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the square with the shoes on the top of the other 2 using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped 2 sentiments in the center of a Whisper White Panel in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. One of the sentiments is from the Stampin’ Up! Strong & Beautiful Cling Stamp Set and the other is from the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Moments Cling Stamp Set. I stamped the shoe image from the Dressed To Impress stamp set twice on the bottom of the panel. I colored the shoes in using my Misty Moonlight Stampin’ Blends Markers and brushed them with Clear Wink of Stella. I stamped the flower image from the Dressed To Impress stamp set on the top of the panel in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored it in using my Just Jade and Purple Posy Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Purple Posy mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Misty Moonlight card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the shoe and flower image from the Dressed To Impress stamp set on the bottom front of the envelope in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. I colored the images in using my Just Jade, Misty Moonlight and Purple Posy Stampin’ Blends Markers. I brushed Clear Wink of Stella on the shoes. I adhered a panel of Snowflake Splendor 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! Enjoy The Moment Sneak Peek for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s week? The weekend is upon us, does anyone have any plans? Besides trying to get my house back in order, I’ll be at work all weekend. We will finally be able to walk on our new floors today, but only with socks, no shoes. I’ll be happy to be able to sleep in my own bed tonight. The hotel was fine, but it’s not home. We probably won’t move our furniture back into the house until next week. My husband has a lot of painting to do now and he has to replace a lot of the molding. We figured it would be a lot easier to do without any furniture in place. I can’t wait till it’s all done and everything can be put back in place.

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 very much. 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. You won’t be able to make the exact card unless you were able to purchase this set already. The stamp set will be available in the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog and the DSP I used is a free item from the Sale-A-Bration Catalog. Here’s my card that I made.

For my Fun Fold card I used the Stampin’ Up! Enjoy The Moment Cling Stamp Set that will be available in the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog on January 5, 2021. I also used the Flower & Field Designer Series Paper that can be earned free with a qualifying order from Sale-A-Bration starting January 5, 2021.

This is the template for cutting your Drapery Fold card.

I started by cutting and folding the Flower & Field DSP as in the template above. I added a couple Glue Dots in between the folds to hold them in place.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Enjoy The Moment stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink. I immediately sprinkled it with my Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I trimmed the folded DSP to 5 1/4″ and adhered it to the Whisper White panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I wrapped a piece of the Just Jade 1/4″ 2020-2022 In-Color Ribbon around the card front and tied a bow. I adhered the card front to a Just Jade card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Misty Moonlight 2020-2022 In-Color Enamel Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Enjoy The Moment stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel. I stamped the flourish image from Enjoy The Moment stamp set in Just Jade Ink, stamping off once, on either side of the sentiment. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Shaded Spruce mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Just Jade card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the flourish image from the Enjoy The Moment stamp set in Just Jade Ink, stamping off once, across the bottom front of the envelope. I adhered a panel of the Flower & Field 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. The list of measurements are below if you’d like to stamp along while watching the video. The stamp set for my card today will be available in the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog on January 5, 2021. The DSP can be earned free with a qualifying order from Sale-A-Bration starting January 5, 2021. If you are one of my customers and have placed an order this past year, I will be sending you a catalog as soon as they are available. If you need a catalog and would like me to be your demonstrator, please drop me a line and I will be more that happy to get one out to you as soon as I can.

Stampin’ Up! Simply Succulents Sneak Peek

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers. How was everyone’s weekend? Did anyone do anything fun. Other than working, I packed up my living room and took all my pictures down from the hallways and staircases. All my furniture got moved into a POD for a couple weeks now. We’re having our floors refinished, so that means everything had to get packed and we’re moving out for a couple days. I’ll actually be coming home in the mornings to let the workers in and I’ll be staying in my basement for the day with my dog. She gets to come to the hotel to stay with us at night, I just don’t want to leave her there by herself during the day.

For today I have another sneak peek for you of a bundle coming in the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog. Here’s my card for today.

I used the new Stampin’ Up! Simply Succulents Bundle for my card. My son’s girlfriends birthday is tomorrow and she love her succulents, so when I saw this set I knew I had to buy it to make her a card. I used quite a few colors for my card along with a sneak peek of a Sale-A-Bration item coming soon.

I started by adhering a panel of In Good Taste Designer Series Paper to a Just Jade card base using Stampin’ Seal. I embossed a panel of the Oh So Ombre 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper using the Scripty 3D Embossing Folder. The Oh So Ombre DSP will be a Sale-A-Bration item available in January/February 2021. I adhered the panel to the Just Jade card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Whisper White Cardstock I stamped 3 of the small succulent images, 1 of the larger succulent image, the flower pot image and the sentiment from the Simply Succulents stamp set (available January 5,2021) in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. I colored the images in using my Gray Granite, Just Jade, Rococo Rose and Soft Seafoam Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the images out using the Potted Succulents Dies (available January 5, 2021). Using the Potted Succulents Dies, I cut one die from a panel of Pear Pizzazz cardstock and two from a panel of Pretty Peacock cardstock.

I adhered the flower pot to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I arranged the succulents the way I wanted them and adhered them using Glue Dots and Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the sentiment below the flowerpot using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few of the Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels to my card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Best Year Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel. I stamped the largest succulent image from the Simply Succulents stamp set in Just Jade Ink, stamping off twice, over the sentiment. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Rococo Rose mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Just Jade card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the succulent image from the Simply Succulents stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front and colored them in using my Just Jade and Rococo Rose Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of In Good Taste DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today, I hope you liked my card. The Simply Succulent Bundle and Oh So Ombre DSP will be available for you to purchase January 5, 2021 from the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog and the Sale-A-Bration Catalog. If you are one of my customers and have made a purchase this year, I will be sending a catalog out to you as soon as they become available. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Zany Zebras Birthday

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone’s weekend going? I’m heading into work again today. I was hoping to have the day off, but they put me on the schedule. It’s a short day at the dog bakery though, I don’t go in until noon and I’m done by 5pm.

For today’s card a co-worker asked me to make her nieces daughter a 1st birthday card. It took me a bit to come up with something, since I thought I didn’t have anything appropriate for a 1 year old. Then I remembered and here’s what I came up with.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Zany Zebras Cling Stamp Set for my card along with a sneak peek inside of a new set coming in the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog.

I started by cutting a panel of Whisper White cardstock using the largest Stitched Triangle Dies. I stamped the adorable little zebra image from the Zany Zebras stamp set in Magenta Madness Ink on the bottom of the triangle. I added a little color to her stripes, mane and tail using my Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends Markers. I then embossed the triangle using the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder. From that same panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the zebra image again in Magenta Madness Ink and I stamped the sentiment from the Zany Zebras stamp set in Magenta Madness Ink. I used some washi tape to cover the happy part of the sentiment so I would just get the birthday. I cut the sentiment out using the smallest die from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies and I fussy cut the zebra using my Paper Snips, not cutting the mane or the tail. I added some color to her stripes using my Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I adhered the fussy cut zebra on top of the stamped zebra on the triangle using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the triangle to a Whisper White card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I cut all the letters and the #1 from a panel of Rainbow Glimmer Paper, which I adhered to a Foam Adhesive Sheet, using the Playful Alphabets Dies.

I cut 3 of the small balloons out using the Happy Dies one in Granny Apple Green, one in Highland Heather and one in Mango Melody. I embossed the Granny Apple Green and Highland Heather balloons using the Wrapped In Texture Embossing Folder. I cut the 3 strings and 3 bows from a panel of Magenta Madness cardstock using the Happy Dies. I adhered the strings to the back of the balloons using Glue Dots and the bows to the bottom of the balloons using a tiny amount of Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the balloons to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the #1 to the Mango Melody balloon. I adhered the letters to the card front the way I wanted them and adhered the die cut birthday under the happy using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added some Artistry Blooms Adhesive-Backed Sequins to the card front. I adhered the card front to a Granny Apple Green mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to a Magenta Madness card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped a sentiment from a new set coming in the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog, the Stampin’ Up! Many Messages Cling Stamp Set. This is 1 large stamp with 19 sentiments on it. I used my Stamparatus to get just the one sentiment centered on a panel of Whisper White Cardstock. I used my Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Write Marker to ink up just the sentiment I wanted to use. I stamped the zebra image from the Zany Zebras stamp set to the side of the sentiment in Magenta Madness Ink and I stamped the party hat from the Zany Zebras stamp set in Magenta Madness Ink on the opposite side. I added color to the strips on the zebra and the pom-pom on the hat using my Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends Markers. I colored the dots on the hat in using my Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Write Marker. I stamped the grass image from the Zany Zebras stamp set under the zebra in Granny Apple Green Ink. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Granny Apple Green mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Magenta Madness card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the zebra image from the Zany Zebras stamp set in Magenta Madness Ink on the envelope front. I stamped the grass image from the Zany Zebras stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink below the zebra. I added some color to the zebras stripes, mane and tail using my Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of Artistry Blooms Designer Series Paper to the envelope flap.

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

Stampin’ Up! Dragonfly Garden Friend Birthday Sneak Peek

Good Saturday morning my fellow stampers. How has everyone’s weekend started off? I’ll be at work all day today.

I have 1 more sneak peek card from last weekends OnStage@Home event for you. I can’t believe it’s already been a week since our OnStage@Home event. I’m loving these designs that the demonstrator came up with for these cards. They really showcase the whole suite. Here’s my take on the last design.

This card once again uses the Stampin’ Up! Dragonfly Garden Bundle. Everyone’s card is a little different depending on which pattern of DSP they chose.

I started by stamping the wildflower image from the Stampin’ Up! Dragonfly Garden Photopolymer Stamp Set in Mossy Meadow Ink in the center of a Smoky Slate card front. I stamped the sentiment from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink on the bottom of the panel.

I adhered the 3 panels of Dandy Garden 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper that I chose to the right of the flowers using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I wrapped a piece of the Mossy Meadow 3/16″ Braided Lined Trim (available January 5,2021) around the card front and tied a bow.

I cut 3 of the small dragonflies out of a panel of Whisper White cardstock using the Dragonflies Punch. I brushed them using my Clear Wink of Stella and adhered them to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the card front to a Blackberry Bliss card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel. I stamped the wildflower image from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink on either side of the panel. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Smoky Slate mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Blackberry Bliss card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the wildflower image from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the Dandy Garden DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today, I hope you liked my card. All items used for this card will be available from the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog on January 5th, 2021. If you are one of my customers and have placed an order in the past year I will be sending a catalog out to you as soon as I receive them. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Garden Wishes Sneak Peek for my Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? I hope you all had a productive one. Does anyone have plans for the weekend? I’ll be working all day tomorrow. It’s been a rainy few days here but of course it’s suppose to be sunny tomorrow.

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 very much. 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. You won’t be able to make the exact card unless you were able to purchase these set already. Both stamp sets and the DSP will be available in the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog. Here’s the card that I made.

I used the new Stampin’ Up! Garden Wishes Cling Stamp Set and the Stampin’ Up! Dragonfly Garden Cling Stamp Set to make my card today.

I started by lightly adhering a panel of the Dandy Garden 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Bumblebee card base using a tiny amount of Stampin’ Seal just on 2 of the corners to hold it in place. I cut the center out using the 2nd largest die from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. I set the pieces to the side and adhered the Dandy Garden DSP to the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I tied a piece of the Misty Moonlight 2020-2022 In-Color 1/4″ Ribbon around the card front and tied a bow. I added a Glue Dot under the bow to hold it in place.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the dandelion image from the Garden Wishes stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. I stamped the flower center image from the Garden Wishes stamp set in Bumblebee Ink, stamping off once, in the center of the dandelion. I colored the stem and leave in using my Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image out using the 3rd largest die from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. I adhered the artwork to the Bumblebee mat (which I cut out from the card base earlier), using Stampin’ Seal.

I adhered a panel of Dandy Garden DSP to the inner card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue then adhered the matted artwork to it using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a couple of the Ladybug Trinkets to the artwork using Glue Dots.

On the inside Z-Fold card I stamped the wild flower image from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the sentiment from the Garden Wishes stamp set in the center of the Whisper White panel I stamped the dragonfly image from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set in Bumblebee Ink on the top and bottom corners of the panel, masking it with a Post-It note so that I didn’t get ink on the side panel. I colored the flowers in using my Calypso Coral and Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the inner card base to a Misty Moonlight mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Bumblebee card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the dandelion image from the Garden Wishes stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front. I stamped the flower center image from the Garden Wishes stamp set in bumblebee Ink, stamping off once, in the center of the dandelion. I colored the leaves and stem in using my Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the dragonfly image from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set in Bumblebee Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the Dandy Garden 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. The list of measurements are below if you’d like to stamp along while watching the video. The stamp sets and DSP for my project today will be available in the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog on January 5, 2021. If you are one of my customers and have placed an order this past year, I will be sending you a catalog as soon as they are available.

You can watch my video on my Facebook page Here.

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends. Hope your weekend has started off wonderful. I’m at my virtual OnStage event this weekend. Even though I’m home, I’m still having a lot of fun and learning a lot. I’ll share the projects we made next week with you.

I have a masculine Clean and Simple card for you today using just Stamps, Ink and Paper. Here’s my card for today.

My colors were inspired by the Color Throwdown Challenge #618. Here are their colors.

I played along with the Paper Craft Crew Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge #400. Here is their board. I went across the top.

I also played along with Cardz 4 Guyz Challenge #257. Their theme is ‘Birthday for an Adult Male’.

I also joined in with Just Add Ink Challenge #530. Their challenge is Stamps-Ink-Paper.

I stamped the tree image from the Stampin’ Up! Life Is Beautiful Photopolymer Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink on a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock. I stamped the leaves image from Life Is Beautiful stamp set in Terracotta Tile Ink. I stamped the birdhouse image from the Life Is Beautiful stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink hanging from the tree. I stamped the grass image from the Life Is Beautiful stamp set in Old Olive Ink, stamped off once, on the bottom of the panel.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Best Year Cling Stamp Set in Old Olive Ink on the top of the Very Vanilla panel.

I adhered the card front to a Cherry Cobbler mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to a Soft Suede card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Best Year stamp set in Old Olive Ink in the center of a Very Vanilla panel. I stamped the birdhouse image from the Life Is Beautiful stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink. I stamped the leaves image from the Life Is Beautiful stamp set in Terracotta Tile Ink on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Soft Suede card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope. I stamped the grass image from the Life Is Beautiful stamp set in Old Olive Ink, stamping off once, across the bottom of the envelope front. I stamped the leaves image from the Life Is Beautiful stamp set in Terracotta Tile Ink along the bottom front of the envelope. I stamped a partial tree image from the Life Is Beautiful stamp set on both sides of the envelope flap in Soft Suede Ink. I stamped the leaves in Terracotta Tile Ink on the branches.

Stampin’ Up! Hooray To You CAS

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend? Hope you are enjoying your extra hour of sleep.

For today I have a Clean and Simple, Quick and Easy card for you. I used the basics for this one, Stamps, Ink & Paper plus I added a little embellishment. Here’s my card for today.

My colors for today’s card were inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge #351. Here are their colors.

My design is from CAS(E) This Sketch Challenge #396. Here is their sketch.

I started by stamped the large image from the Stampin’ Up! Hooray To You Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel. I colored the flower in using my Blackberry Bliss Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I stamped the small sentiment from the Hooray To You stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a thin strip of Whisper White cardstock and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered the artwork to a Bumblebee mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to a Night of Navy card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Bumblebee 2020-2022 In-Colors Enamel Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Hooray To You stamp set in the center of a Whisper White panel in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. I stamped the flower images from the Hooray To You stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink around the sentiment. I colored the flowers in using my Blackberry Bliss Stampin’ Blends Markers and my Bumblebee Stampin’ Write Marker. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Bumblebee mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Night of Navy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the flower images from the Hooray To You stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink along the bottom front of the envelope and on the envelope flap. I colored the flowers in using my Blackberry Bliss Stampin’ Blends Markers and my Bumblebee Stampin’ Write Marker.

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

Stampin’ Up! Dragonfly Garden for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Is anyone doing anything fun this weekend? I’ll be working both days again. Ever since my daughter said that she wanted to go apple picking I have been working extra.

Today’s card I made Wednesday on my Facebook Live Video. If you were able to join me live or you watched the replay, thank you very much.  If you’d like to view my video either on Facebook or YouTube, the links are below. Here’s my card for today.

The Stampin’ Up! Dragonfly Garden Bundle will be available for purchase in the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog. The Stampin’ Up! Quite Curvy Bundle will be available November 3rd.

I started by scoring and folded a Misty Moonlight card base at 1 1/2″ & 4 1/4″. I folded the card base in half and then folded the 1 1/2″ fold back. I adhered the larger of the 3 Dandy Garden 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper panels to the front fold of the card base using Stampin’ Seal.

I adhered the other 2 panels of the Dandy Garden DSP to the inside of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On the inside Whisper White panel, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Dragonfly Garden Cling Stamp Set in Misty Moonlight Ink. I stamped the tiny dragonfly image from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set in Calypso Coral Ink above and below the sentiment. I adhered the Whisper White panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the floral image from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. I colored some of the image in using my Calypso Coral, Misty Moonlight and Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image out using the 2nd largest Stitched Nested Labels Dies and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals, hanging off the left side. On another panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the dragonfly image from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and stamped the wing fill color in Misty Moonlight Ink, stamping off once. I adhered the dragonfly to the artwork using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut a panel of Whisper White cardstock using my Curvy Dies then stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Quite Curvy Photopolymer Stamp Set in Misty Moonlight Ink. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals on the right side and a Glue Dot on the artwork. I added a couple of the adorable Ladybug Trinkets to the sentiment and the card base using Glue Dots.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the tiny dragonfly image from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set in Calypso Coral Ink along the bottom front of the envelope.

I adhered another design from the Dandy Garden 6 X 6 DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today, I hope you liked my card.  The list of measurements are below if you’d like to stamp along while watching the video. Items used won’t be available until January 5th, but you can use any DSP and stamp set to recreate this card.  You can watch it on my Facebook page Here.

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