Stampin’ Up! Pansy Patch Birthday

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends. How has everyone’s week started off. I hope you are having a productive one. Today is not going to go as planned. I can’t work on my garden like I wanted to. Looks like I might be putting it off to the fall when some of the bugs go away. I got eaten up so bad on Saturday when I was only out there for a couple hours, my legs look like someone tortured me with pins. I was going to spray my lawn and garden, but it’s harmful to my fur baby.

Today I have a quick card for you showcasing another one of the DSP’s that’s on sale. I let the DSP do all the work and there’s very little stamping today. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Pansy Patch Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper for my card today.

My design is from the Paper Craft Crew Challenge #435.

I started by adhering a panel of Pansy Petals DSP to a Soft Sea Foam card based using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered another panel of the Pansy Petals DSP to an Evening Evergreen mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to a Soft Sea Foam mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Soft Sea Foam cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Pansy Patch stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink. I cut the strip into a banner using my Banners Pick A Punch. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a Bumblebee Trinket using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Pansy Patch stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink on a Basic White panel. I adhered a panel of the Pansy Petals DSP to the bottom of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the Basic White panel to an Evening Evergreen 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 Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of the Pansy Petals 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! Nothing’s Better Than Cocktails

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend. Did anyone do anything fun or exciting? Looks like we’ll be cooling down a bit her for the next week. Only in the mid to upper 80’s, just in time for me to redo another one of my gardens. I’m planning on digging out a tree tomorrow and prettying up that garden. I bought a few hydrangea bushes a couple months ago and haven’t gotten them in the ground yet. Luckily I’ve kept them very alive and healthy in their pots.

I have a fun card for today using another older set from the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog. My neighbors birthday is next weekend and she loves her cocktails. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Nothing’s Better Than Photopolymer Stamp Set along with a little of the Bloom Where You’re Planted Designer Series Paper for my card today.

My colors are from the Color Throwdown Challenge #651.

I started by stamping the cocktail glass image from the Nothing’s Better Than stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped 2 of the glasses with Bermuda Bay and 2 with Magenta Madness Inks. I stamped the limes in Granny Apple Green Ink. I stamped 2 of the umbrellas in Bermuda Bay Ink, stamped off once, and 2 in Magenta Madness Ink, stamped off once. I cut all the images out using my Love You More Than Dies.

On a panel of Night of Navy cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Nothing’s Better Than stamp set in Versamark Ink. I immediately sprinkled it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder from the Basic Emboss Powder pack. I set it using my Heat Tool. Using my Love You More Than Dies, I cut a Basic White panel and a Rainbow Glimmer paper panel with the cocktails dies.

I adhered a panel of Bloom Where You’re Planted DSP to the bottom of the Night of Navy card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the cocktail glassed on top of the DSP using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I wrapped a piece of Linen Thread around the panel below the glasses but at the top of the DSP panel and tied a knot in the back. I adhered the die cut sentiments to the top of the panel off setting them a bit, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the card front to a Night of Navy card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few 2020-2022 In-Color Square Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped 2 of the sentiments from the Nothing’s Better Than stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Moments Cling Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink below the other 2. I stamped the cocktail glass image from the Nothing’s Better Than stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom of the panel and stamped the fill images the same as I did for the card front. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Magenta Madness 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 Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the cocktail images from the Nothing’s Better Than stamp set on the envelope front the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of Bloom Where You’re Planted DSP 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! Lovely You In The Wild

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone’s weekend going? I got a lot of weeding and trimming done yesterday before the heat and humidity got really bad. I was outside before 7am so all I had to deal with were the gnats. I got my bushes and trees trimmed and a lot of weeds pulled. If only my flowers grew as easily as the weeds my gardens would look beautiful. Today I’ll be at work all day in the A/C.

Today’s card is made with another one of the sale DSP’s and an older stamp set. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Lovely You Cling Stamp Set along with the In The Wild Designer Series Paper for my card today.

My design is from Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #494.

I started by adhering a panel of In The Wild DSP to an Evening Evergreen card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered a smaller panel of In The Wild DSP to an Evening Evergreen mat using Stampin’ seal and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Lovely You stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink. I adhered the sentiment to an Evening Evergreen mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Inspired Thoughts Cling Stamp Set in Evening Evergreen Ink on a Basic White panel. I fussy cut one of the cheetah images from the In The Wild DSP using my Paper Snips and adhered it to the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Soft Succulent mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Evening Evergreen card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of the In The Wild 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. Don’t forget that the DSP sale is going on right now and you can save 15% on select packs. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Plentiful Plants Dear Friend

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends. Hope your weekend is starting off with some fun activities planned. I have off today and I’ll be at work tomorrow. I don’t have plans for today yet except to do a little trimming of some plants in my gardens. That will be done first thing this morning since we are expected to be in the mid 90’s today.

Today’s card uses one of the beautiful packs of DSP that is on sale right now. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Plentiful Plants Bundle form my card along with In Good Taste Designer Series Paper today.

My design is from Just Add Ink Challenge #563.

I started by embossing a Gray Granite card front using the Macramé 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered a panel of In Good Taste DSP to the top of the panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I wrapped a piece of Evening Evergreen 3/8″ Open Weave Ribbon around the panel and tied a knot.

Using the Stampin’ Up! Plentiful Plants Photopolymer Stamp Set, I stamped the flower pot in Pale Papaya Ink, the leafy plant in Soft Succulent Ink and the berry plant in Fresh Freesia Ink. I cut the images out using my Perfect Plants Dies. I cut the macramé plant holder from a panel of Evening Evergreen cardstock. I arranged the flowerpot and plants the way I wanted them in the plant holder and adhered them with Multipurpose Liquid Glue and Glue Dots. I threaded a piece of Gray Granite bakers twine from the Bakers Twine Essential Pack through the holder and adhered it to the back of the card front with Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the card front to a Gray Granite card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Plentiful Plants stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink. I adhered the sentiment to the bottom of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Evening Evergreen 2021-2023 In-Color Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Plentiful Plants stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the flowerpot image from the Plentiful Plants stamp set on the bottom in Pale Papaya Ink and the leafy plane in the flowerpot in Soft Succulent Ink. I adhered a strip of In Good Taste DSP to the bottom of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the Basic White panel to an Evening Evergreen mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Gray Granite card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the flowerpot image from the Plentiful Plants stamp set in Pale Papaya Ink on the bottom front of the envelope. I stamped the plant image in Soft Succulent in the pot. 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! Nature’s Harvest CAS Sneak Peek

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone doing today? We’re halfway through the week and on our way to the weekend. I hope you are starting to make some fun plans.

Today I have a Clean and Simple card with a sneak peek for you. Here’s my card for today.

I used the new Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Harvest Cling Stamp Set for my card today. This set will be available on Tuesday August 3rd.

My design is from the CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge #428.

My colors are from The Paper Players challenge #549.

I started by adhering a small panel of Basic White cardstock on a Basic White cardstock with the tiniest amount of Stampin’ Seal just to hold it in place. I stamped the large cone flower image from the Nature’s Harvest stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I carefully removed the small panel so that it wouldn’t stick to the card front. I colored the image in on the small panel and the card front using my Just Jade & Misty Moonlight Stampin’ Blends Markers. I colored the flower center in using my Bumblebee Stampin’ Write Marker.

I adhered the Basic White card front to a Bumblebee card base using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the small panel to a Bumblebee mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to the card front, matching up the images, using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Nature’s Harvest stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the top of the panel. I adhered a Bumblebee Trinket to the small panel with a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Thanks Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the cone flower image on the bottom of the panel in Tuxedo Black Ink and colored the image in using my Just Jade & Misty Moonlight Stampin’ Blends Markers and my Bumblebee Stampin’ Write Marker. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Bumblebee 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 Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the cone flower image from the Nature’s Harvest stamp set on the envelope front in Tuxedo Black Ink and colored it in the same as on the card. I adhered a panel of the 2020-2022 In-Color 6 X 6 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. Products will be available on Tuesday August 3rd when the July-December 2021 Mini Catalog goes live. This is really a beautiful set and you will want to put this on your list. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ UP! Plentiful Plants Thank You

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend? Did anyone go to see fireworks yesterday?

I have a CAS card for today using some of the Designer Series Paper that is on sale right not. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Plentiful Plants Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Bloom Where You’re Planted Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I played along with As You See It Challenge #253. My card took me 8 minutes and 45 seconds to make.

My design is from Fab Friday Challenge #217.

My colors are from Color Throwdown Challenge # 649.

I started by adhering a panel of Bloom Where You’re Planted DSP to a Garden Green mat using Stampin’ Seal.

I adhered strips of Gorgeous Grape and Pacific Point cardstock on the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I stamped the sentiment from the Plentiful Plants stamp set in Garden Green Ink on a strip of Basic White cardstock and adhered it above the strips of cardstock using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

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

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Plentiful Plants stamp set in Garden Green Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the flowerpot image from the Plentiful Plants stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the larger plant image in Garden Green Ink on the flowerpot, stamping off once. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Garden Green mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Basic White card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the flowerpot image from the Plentiful Plants stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink on the envelope front. I stamped the larger plant image from the Plentiful Plants stamp set in Garden Green Ink on the flowerpot. I adhered a panel of the Bloom Where You’re Planted DSP to the envelope flap.

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend? Saturday was sticky and rainy here and Sunday was hot and humid. Luckily I was inside with A/C all day working.

My colors are from Just Add Ink Challenge #560.

My design is from Sunday Stamps Challenge #260.

I started by adhering a panel of the Coastal Cabana Brights 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Gray Granite mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I embossed a panel of Blackberry Bliss cardstock using the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to the Gray Granite mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the layered panel to a Gray Granite card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped the sentiment from the Dressed To Impress stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I cut the sentiment out using the Stitched So Sweetly Dies and adhered it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the shoe, lipstick and perfume bottle images from the Dressed To Impress stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the images in using my Blackberry Bliss and Gray Granite Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the images out using my All Dressed Up Dies. I arranged the die cut images on the side of the sentiment using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Coastal Cabana Playing With Patterns Resin Dots to the card front. I brushed the lipstick and perfume bottle with Clear Wink of Stella.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Dressed To Impress stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the lipstick image on the bottom of the panel in Tuxedo Black Ink and colored it in using my Blackberry Bliss and Gray Granite Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the lipstick smudge image in Blackberry Bliss Ink, stamping off once, on the bottom of the panel. I brushed the lipstick with my Clear Wink of Stella.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the sentiment and lipstick image from the Dressed To Impress stamp set on the envelope front. I colored the image in using my Blackberry Bliss and Gray Granite Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the lipstick smudge in Blackberry Bliss Ink, stamping off once, on the envelope front. I adhered a panel 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. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Pansy Patch Step Card for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Does anyone have any plans for the weekend yet? I will only be at Ace all day Sunday working, I have off from the dog bakery this weekend.

Today’s card I made on my Facebook Live video on Wednesday. If you were able to join me or watched the replay, thank you. If you’d like to watch my video and stamp along, the measurements are below along with the links to my Facebook page and my YouTube channel. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Pansy Petals Suite Collection for my fun fold card today.

My colors are from the Global Design Project #297.

This is the template to reproduce this card. I really hope you will try it out.

Once I made all the card base cuts, I decorated the card base. I started by stamping the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Pansy Patch Photopolymer Stamp Set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on a strip of Basic White cardstock. I adhered the sentiment to a Fresh Freesia mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the bottom of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered 2 panels of the Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper to Fresh Freesia mats using Stampin’ Seal and then to either side of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the small pansy image from the Pansy Patch stamp set 3 times. Once in Blackberry Bliss full strength, once in Blackberry Bliss stamped off once and the 3rd in Blackberry Bliss full strength with Fresh Freesia over the top. I cut the 3 flowers out using the Pansy Dies. I cut 4 solid leaves, 4 detailed leaves and 2 stems from a panel of Pear Pizzazz cardstock using my Pansy Dies. Using my Sponge Dauber I added some Pear Pizzazz Ink to the detailed leaves. I adhered the detailed leaves to the solid leaves using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and adhered the 2 stems on top of one another using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the stems to a Basic White panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the leaves and flowers to the stem using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Fresh Freesia mat using Stampin’ Seal. I wrapped a piece of Fresh Freesia 3/8″ Open Weave Ribbon around the matted panel and tied a bow. I adhered the artwork to the middle panel of the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a little Bumblebee Trinket near the flowers.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Pansy Patch stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the small pansy image from the Pansy Patch stamp set on the bottom of the panel in Blackberry Bliss Ink using the Masking Technique. I stamped the solid leaf image in Pear Pizzazz Ink, stamped off once and the detailed leaf image in Pear Pizzazz Ink on top of the solid leaves. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Fresh Freesia mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Blackberry Bliss card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the small pansy image from the Pansy Patch stamp set 3 times on the bottom front corner of the envelope using the masking technique. I adhered a panel of the Pansy Petals 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. If you do CASE this card, please feel free to post it in the comments of my Facebook page under this post. I’d love to see your take on the card. The list of measurements are below if you’d like to stamp along while watching the video. You can watch my video on my Facebook page Here.

I stamped the sentiment from the Inspired Thoughts stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink next to the sunflower. I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Fresh Freesia 2021-2023 In-Color Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Inspired Thoughts stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink in the center of a Basic White panel.

Stampin’ Up! Seascape Thank You

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. We’re halfway through the week and on the downhill to the weekend. Is anyone starting to make plans?

It’s time for another inspiration challenge for The Card Concept.  The inspiration photo is Long Summer Days. Here is my card that was inspired from the challenge photo.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Bundle for my Clean and Layered card. The first thing that caught my eye when I looked at this photo was the blue seahorses then the wooden tray and other beach themed items.

I hope you will take a moment to visit The Card Concept and join us for our challenge #158. This will be our last challenge before our summer break and we will be keeping the link open until Monday, August 23rd, so be sure to stop by and play along. How are you inspired by this photo.

I started by adhering a panel of In Good Taste Designer Series Paper to a Gray Granite mat using Stampin’ Seal. I cut a panel of Basic White cardstock using my Nature’s Thoughts Dies and using my Blending Brush, I brushed Balmy Blue Ink on it.

I cut a seahorse from a panel of Ombre Specialty Paper using my Sea Life Dies. Using the same dies, I cut the coral from a panel of Just Jade cardstock. I also cut the fish out of a scrap of Rainbow Glimmer Paper.

On the Basic White panel which I brushed with Balmy Blue Ink, I stamped the sand image from the Stampin’ Up! Seascape Cling Stamp Set in Sahara Sand Ink. I stamped the seaweed image from the Seascape stamp set in Just Jade Ink, stamping off once. I stamped the sentiment from the Seascape stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on the top of the panel. I adhered the panel to the card front using Stampin’ Seal and wrapped a piece of Gray Granite bakers twine from the Bakers Twine Essential Pack around the bottom of the panel. I adhered the coral to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I wrapped the seahorses tail around the coral and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added one of the little fish I had cut from the Rainbow Glimmer Paper to the artwork using a Glue Dot. I added a few of the Clear Epoxies from the Silver & Clear Epoxy Essentials to the artwork.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Seascape stamp set in Night of Navy Ink towards the top of a Basic White panel. I stamped the sand image from the Seascape stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink along the bottom of the panel. I stamped the seaweed image from the Seascape stamp set in Just Jade Ink on either side of the panel. I added the other fish to the inside using a Glue Dot. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Gray Granite mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Gray Granite card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the sand image from the Seascape stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink along the bottom front of the envelope. I stamped the seaweed image from the Seascape stamp set in Just Jade Ink on either side of the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the 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!!
