Stampin’ Up! Seaside Notions Birthday for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers. 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 beautiful projects. If you’ve hopped over from Karen Finkle’s blog, welcome to my blog and thank you for stopping by. The theme this month is “Celebrate Summer”.  We can interpret this however we want.  I chose to make a birthday care since I have a lot of summer birthdays.  Here’s my card.

I played along with Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge #343.  Here is their Inspiration.  I’d like to be at any of these places right now.  I love spending time on the beach, it’s so peaceful and relaxing to me listening to the waves and seagulls.

I started by stamping the coral, seahorse and seashell images from the Stampin’ Up! Seaside Notions Cling Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I colored the images in using my Calypso Coral, Crumb Cake, Petal Pink and Purple Posy Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the images out using my Stitched Rectangle Dies.  I adhered them each to a Crumb Cake mat using Stampin’ Seal.

I stamped the sentiment from Seaside Notions stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the bottom of a Petal Pink card front and embossed the panel using my Dainty Diamonds 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the embossed panel to a Crumb Cake mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the artwork to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I wrapped a piece of Linen Thread around the matted panel and tied a bow.  I adhered the card front to a Calypso Coral card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals and added a few Elegant Faceted Gems.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Best Year Cling Stamp Set in the center of a Whisper White panel in Soft Suede Ink.  I stamped the coral image from the Seaside Notions stamp set in Soft Suede Ink and colored it in using my Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Crumb Cake mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Calypso Coral card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the seahorse and coral images from the Seaside Notions stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the envelope front and the seashell image on the envelope flap.  I colored the images in using my Calypso Coral, Crumb Cake, Petal Pink and Purple Posy Stampin’ Blends Markers.

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! Forever Fern Friendship

Good Monday morning my stamping friends.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Did anyone do anything fun?  It was a pretty quiet weekend other than work.  Mu husband got out taxes done finally, nothing like waiting till the last minute.

For today’s card I have a bit of a collage card for you.  I was playing around with the Forever Flourish Dies and here’s what I came up with.

My card played along with Festive Friday Challenge # FF0063.  Here is their Inspo List. I have the Friendship Sentiment (on the inside), Green, Ribbon, Die Cuts and Embossing.

I started by cutting the different flourishes from the Forever Flourishing Dies from panels of Just Jade, Pear Pizzazz, Pretty Peacock and Soft Seafoam.  Some I cut 1 of, some 2 and some 4.

I stamped some of the leaf images from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern Cling Stamp Set on a panel of Whisper White cardstock in Garden Green, Pear Pizzazz, Pretty Peacock and Shaded Spruce.  I cut all those images out using the Forever Flourishing Dies.  I arranged all the greenery the way I liked it on my E Clear Acrylic Block.  I place the F Clear Acrylic Block on top of them and flipped it over, removed the E Block and adhered Stampin’ Dimensionals and Glue Dots around holding the pieces together.  I knew I wouldn’t be able to remember how I arranged them that’s why I did it that way.

I embossed a Shaded Spruce card  front using the Greenery Embossing Folder.  I embossed 1/2 the cardstock and then lined it up and embossed the other 1/2.  I adhered 2 of the Forever Gold Laser-Cut Specialty Paper to the card front using Glue Dots.  I adhered the collage of greenery on top of the laser-cut pieces using the Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I wrapped a piece of the Whisper White 1/2″ Faux Linen Ribbon, from the Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack, around the card front and tied a bow.  I adhered the card front to a Soft Sea Foam card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Forever Fern stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped one of the leafy images from Forever Fern stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on the bottom right of the panel and the eucalyptus image in Pretty Peacock Ink on the other side.  I stamped the splatter image from the Forever Fern stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink around the leaves and sentiment.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Shaded Spruce mat using Stampin’ Seal 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 leaf images from the Forever Fern stamp set in Garden Green, Pear Pizzazz, Pretty Peacock and Shaded Spruce Inks on the envelope front and envelope flap.  I stamped the splatter image from the Forever Fern stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink around the leaf images.

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

Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Thanks CAS

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends.  How is everyone’s weekend going?  Does anyone have any fun activities planned for today?  What ever you do, I hope you have an enjoyable day.

For today’s card I went outside my comfort zone.  I tried a monochromatic card.  I’m usually all about different colors, not today.  I love this technique and wanted to try it out with some blues.  Here is my card.

I’m playing along with Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge #402.  Here is their theme.

I started by inking up my D Clear Acrylic Block starting with Balmy Blue Ink on the top 1/3.  I then inked the center with Seaside Spray Ink and the bottom 1/3 with Misty Moonlight Ink.  Using my Stampin’ Spritzer filled with water, I spritzed the block from about 8″-10″ away 3-4 times.  I stamped a panel of Thick Whisper White cardstock with the block.  Each time you do this technique you get different results, that’s what makes it really awesome.  I let the panel dry for a bit.

I stamped the floral image from the Stampin’ Up! Beauty Abounds Cling Stamp Set in Seaside Spray Ink in the center of the ink block.  I stamped the butterfly images from the Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Wishes Cling Stamp Set in Misty Moonlight Ink on either side of the floral image and stamping outside of the ink block.

I stamped the sentiment from the Beauty Abounds stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink below the ink block.  I adhered the artwork to a Thick Whisper White card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Thanks Photopolymer Stamp Set in Misty Moonlight Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the floral image from the Beauty Abounds stamp set in Seaside Spray Ink on the side of the panel.  I stamped the butterfly from the Butterfly Wishes stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink above the floral image and sentiment.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Seaside Spray mat using Stampin’ Seal and then 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 floral image from the Beauty Abounds stamp set in Seaside Spray Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped the butterfly images from the Butterfly Wishes stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink by the floral image and on 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! Flowering Blooms Sympathy CAS

Good Saturday morning my fellow stampers.  How has everyone’s weekend started off?  I have to work today, but I’m off tomorrow.  I’m not sure what we’re doing, if anything.  We always wait to see what the weather will bring.

For today I have a Clean and Simple card for you.  Here’s my card for today.

My colors are from Color Throwdown Challenge #601.  Here are their colors.

I started by stamping the rose image from the Stampin’ Up! Flowering Blooms Cling Stamp Set, colored using my Granny Apple Green and Merry Merlot Stampin’ Write Markers, on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I colored the roses in using my Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I stamped the butterfly image from the Stampin’ Up! Beauty Abounds Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink above the rose and colored it using my Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Moments Cling Stamp Set in Merry Merlot Ink next to the flower image on the bottom of the panel.  I adhered the card front to a Flirty Flamingo mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the front of a Merry Merlot card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Pumpkin Pie Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels on the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Peaceful Moments stamp set in Merry Merlot Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the rose image from the Flowering Blooms stamp set, colored with my Granny Apple Green and Merry Merlot Stampin’ Write Markers, on the bottom of the panel.  I colored the roses in using my Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Flirty Flamingo mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Merry Merlot card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the rose image from the Flowering  Blooms stamp set, colored with my Granny Apple Green and Merry Merlot Stampin’ Write Markers, on the envelope front.  I colored the roses in using my Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the butterfly image from the Beauty Abounds stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink above the rose and and on the envelope flap and colored them in using my Flirty Flamingo and Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends Markers.

Stampin’ Up! Framed Flowers for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday!!  How was everyone’s week?  The weekend is upon us, do you have any plans?  I had a wonderful day at the beach yesterday.  It looked a little iffy when we first got there with the fog and clouds, but it turned out to be an absolutely gorgeous day.  The sun was shining and the water was perfect.  By the afternoon we couldn’t even sit at our blanket the sun got so hot, so we went in the ocean for over an hour.  The waves were awesome, I’m guessing because of the storm we are supposed to get today.  I only came home with a little sunburn (ok, maybe a lot) and blistered feet because of the sand being so darn hot.  The beach is my happy place and now today it’s back to reality.

I have a corner flip fold card for you today.  Here’s my card.

I played along with The Paper Players Challenge #498.  Here is their Theme.

I started by adhering a panel of Flowers For Every Season 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Misty Moonlight card base using Stampin’ Seal.  I then cut my card front using my Paper Trimmer.  I placed the card front bottom edge down, at the 3″ mark on my trimmer and cut from the 2 1/2″ mark up to the 4 7/8″ mark.  I turned my card base a 1/4 turn (so the outside edge was down) and place it at the 3″ mark again on my trimmer.  I cut from the 3″ mark down to the 5/8″ mark.  I pushed the cut piece through from the bottom and flipped it around so the inside was now on the outside.

I stamped the frame image from the Stampin’ Up! Framed For You Cling Stamp Set in Cinnamon Cider Ink on a Cinnamon Cider panel.  I cut the frame out using the largest and 5th from largest squares from my Layering Squares Dies.  I adhered a small panel of Flowers For Every Season  DSP to the flipped corner using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the frame over the DSP using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added Antique Corners from the Antique Corners & Slides Elements to the 4 corners of the frame using Glue Dots.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers Cling Stamp Set in Misty Moonlight Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using my Hippo & Friends Dies.  I adhered a piece of Cinnamon Cider 2020-2022 In-Color 1/4″ Ribbon to the bottom of the card front using a Glue Dot.  I adhered the sentiment over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Just Jade 2020-2022 In-Color Enamel Dots to the sentiment  and the inner liner which shows through to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the leaf images from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Just Jade Ink around the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Cinnamon Cider 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 leaf images from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Just Jade Ink along the bottom front of the envelope.  I adhered a panel of the Flowers For Every Season DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Prized Peony Thanks

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends  How is everyone doing today?  We’re halfway through the week already and before you know it the weekend will be here.

For today’s card I used the beautiful Stampin’ Up! Prized Peony Cling Stamp Set.  Here is my card for today.

My design is from Fab Friday Challenge #193.  Here is their sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of Peony Garden Designer Series Paper to a Petal Pink mat using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered it to a Basic Gray card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered a panel of Peony Garden DSP to a panel of Petal Pink cardstock which I cut using the 2nd largest die from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.  I cut the left side of the matted panel even with the DSP panel.  I adhered a piece of a Square Vellum Doilie to the bottom of the artwork using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Prized Peony stamp set in Gray Granite Ink.  I stamped the small peony image from the Prized Peony stamp set in Petal Pink Ink on the end of the strip.  I cut the strip into a banner using my Banner Triple Punch and adhered it to the artwork using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I added a few Elegant Faceted Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Prized Peony stamp set in Gray Granite Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the small peony image from the Prized Peony stamp set in Petal Pink Ink on the bottom of the panel.  I adhered a strip of Peony Garden DSP to the left side of the panel using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Petal Pink mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Basic Gray card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the small peony image from the Prized Peony stamp set on the bottom front of the envelope in Petal Pink Ink.  I adhered a panel of Peony 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. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Slice of Happiness

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends.  How has everyone’s week started off? Hope everyone is having a productive one.  I’m hoping the weather holds out and I can take a trip down the shore this week.  Where we go, we have to buy tickets in advance now with everything going on. Tickets go on sale at 7am and last week my niece and nephew tried to go and they were sold out before 7:10.  They are really limiting how many people can go on the beach, so fingers crossed that no one wants to go Thursday.

I have one more card for you today using the adorable Stampin’ Up! Cute Fruit Photopolymer Stamp Set from the beginner catalog and it’s a super simple one.  If you are new at stamping, this catalog is perfect for you.  It all starts with simple stamping, I just kind of added a little extra.  Here’s my card for you.

My colors were from TGIF Challenge #271.  Here are their colors.

I started by cutting 6 of the smallest square from the Stitched Shapes Dies out of Whisper White cardstock and 6 out of In Good Taste Designer Series Paper.  I adhered the squares to a Granny Apple Green card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the card front to a Flirty Flamingo mat using Stampin’ Seal.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the citrus fruit images from the Cute Fruit stamp set.  I stamped the outer lime image in Granny Apple Green and the inner lime image in Granny Apple Green stamped off once.  I stamped the outer orange image in Mango Melody Ink and the inner orange image in Mango Melody Ink stamped off once.  I stamped the outer grapefruit image in Mango Melody Ink stamped off once and the inner grapefruit image in Flirty Flamingo Ink stamped off once.  I stamped the smiley face image from the Cute Fruit stamp set on the limes in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.

I adhered all the fruit images to the stitched white squares using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I stamped the sentiment from the Cute Fruit stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a Mango Melody panel.  I cut the panel out using my Stitched Rectangle Dies.  There wasn’t one that fit perfectly so I had to make my own.  I did this by cutting part way through with the 2nd smallest Stitched Rectangle Die.  I moved the rectangle and made sure that the stitches were lined up, turned it around and ran it through my die cutting machine part way through again.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I tied a multi looped bow with Linen Thread and adhered it to the sentiment using a Glue Dot.  I adhered the matted card front to a Basic Black card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Rhinestones Basic Jewels to the fruit with out faces and the sentiment.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment form the Stampin’ Up! Many Mates Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the citrus fruit image from the Cute Fruit stamp set around the sentiment in Flirty Flamingo, Granny Apple Green and Mango Melody Inks.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Flirty Flamingo mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Basic Black card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the citrus fruit image from the Cute Fruit stamp set on the bottom of the envelope front in Flirty Flamingo, Granny Apple Green and Mango Melody Ink.  I stamped the face image from the Cute Fruit on the fruit in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  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 and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Cute Fruit Thanks

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends.  How was everyone’s 4th?  Anyone have a picnic or go to one?  It was a very quiet day for us, we kind of just relaxed around the house.  Definitely was not our normal 4th.

For today’s card I used the super adorable set from the beginner catalog again.  I really love this set.  Here’s my card for today.

My sketch is from CAS(E) This Sketch Challenge #379.  Here is their sketch.

My colors are from Color Throwdown Challenge #600.  Here are their colors.

I started by stamping the watermelon image from the Stampin’ Up! Cute Fruit Photopolymer Stamp Set on an extra long strip of Whisper White cardstock.  I stamped the rind first in Granny Apple Green Ink, then the fruit  in Poppy Parade Ink.  I colored the seeds in using my Basic Black Stampin’ Blends Marker.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Basic Black mat using Stampin’ Seal.

I embossed a panel of Poppy Parade cardstock using the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the matted strip of watermelons to the card front on an angle, hanging over on both corners, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I cut off the excess using my Paper Snips.  I adhered the card front to a Poppy Parade card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small panel of Basic Black cardstock, I cut the sentiment from the Well Written Dies and adhered it to the strip of fruit using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Cute Fruit stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the watermelon image from the Cute Fruit stamp set on the bottom of the panel stamping the rind first in Granny Apple Green Ink, then the fruit in Poppy Parade Ink.  I colored the seeds using my Basic Black Stampin’ Blends markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Basic Black mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Poppy Parade card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the watermelon image from the Cute Fruit stamp set on the envelope front and flap.  I stamped the rind first in Granny Apple Green Ink and then the fruit in Poppy Parade Ink.  I stamped the adorable face from the Cute Fruit stamp set on the watermelon in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I stamped the sentiment from the Cute Fruit stamp set (because I thought it needed it), under the watermelon image on the envelope front in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!!  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Swirly Birthday CAS

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends and Happy Independence Day!! I hope you are all enjoying your weekend and you have some fun plans for today.  There aren’t any fireworks around here this year, but I’m sure I’ll hear them going off somewhere with people setting them off.  Luckily fireworks and thunder don’t bother my dog at all.

For today’s card I have a very clean and simple card for you.  For those of you that know me, you know clean and simple is not me, but I thought I’d give it a try again.  I thought it was appropriate to make it Red, White and Blue.  Here’s my card for today.

My sketch is from Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #442.  Here is their sketch.

My colors are from Cardz 4 Guyz Challenge #248, Red, White and Blue.

I played along with Seize The Birthday Challenge #194.  Here is their theme.

I joined in with Color My Heart Color Dare #401.  Here is their inspiration Board.

I started by stamping the small square from the Stampin’ Up! Swirly Frames Photopolymer Stamp Set in Misty Moonlight Ink on a Whisper White card front.  I stamped the small circle from the Swirly Frames stamp set in Real Red Ink over the square.  I stamped the small rectangle from the Swirly Frames stamp set in Real Red Ink overlapping the circle and square image.

On a strip of Misty Moonlight cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Birthdays Cling Stamp Set in Versamark Ink.  I immediately sprinkled it with my White Stampin’ Emboss Power and set it using my Heat Tool.  I adhered the sentiment over the shapes on the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered the Whisper White card front to a Misty Moonlight mat using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered a Real Red panel to the Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the matted card front to the 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 Itty Bitty Birthdays stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the circle and rectangle images from the Swirly Frames stamp set in Real Red on either side of the panel.  I stamped the small dot image from the Swirly Frames stamp set in Real Red Ink under the sentiment.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Misty Moonlight mat using Stampin’ Seal, then to a Real Red mat using Stampin’ Seal and finally to the inside of the Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the circle and rectangle image from the Swirly Frames stamp set in Real Red Ink on the envelope front and flap.  I stamped the square image from the Swirly Frames stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink on the envelope front and flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Enjoy your day with whatever you do and stay safe.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Positive Thoughts for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends and welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop.  How is everyone doing today?  If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we had a Color Challenge. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects .
Here are the colors we had to work from.

Here is my card using the new 2020-2022 In- Colors.

My design is from Sunday Stamps Challenge #234 Going In Circles.  Here is their sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of In Good Taste Designer Series Paper to a Cinnamon Cider mat using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered the card front to a Cinnamon Cider card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Using the Stampin’ Up! Positive Thoughts Cling Stamp Set I stamped the butterfly image in Bumblebee Ink, the feather image in Misty Moonlight Ink, the flower in Magenta Madness Ink and the leafy images in Just Jade Ink.  I cut all the images out using the Nature’s Thoughts Dies.  I adhered the leafy images to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I added some Misty Moonlight/Silver Bakers Twine from the Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack to the card front using Glue Dots.  I added the butterfly, feather and flower to the card front using Stampn’ Dimensionals.

On a thin strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Thanks Photopolymer Stamp Set in Cinnamon Cider Ink.  I made the strip into a banner using my Paper Snips and adhered it to the card front using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Cinnamon Cider 2020-2022 In-Color Enamel Dots to the card front.   I cut a small butterfly using the Nature’s Thoughts Dies from a Silver Foil Sheet and adhered it to the twine using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Positive Thoughts stamp set in Cinnamon Cider Ink.  I stamped the feather from the Positive Thoughts stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink on the side of the sentiment.  I stamped the leafy image from the Positive Thoughts stamp set in Just Jade Ink on the other side of the sentiment.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Cinnamon Cider mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Cinnamon Cider card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  Using my Positive Thoughts stamp set, I stamped the butterfly in Bumblebee Ink, the feather in Misty Moonlight Ink and the leafy image in Just Jade Ink on the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of In Good Taste DSP to the envelope flap.
