Stampin’ Up! Friends Are Like Seashells for The Card Concepts

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends.  I hope everyone is having a productive week. We’re halfway through and on our way to the weekend. It’s been gorgeous here for the past week, sunny and perfect temp.

It’s time for another inspiration challenge for The Card Concepts. The inspiration photo is By The Sea. Here is my card that was inspired from the challenge photo.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Friends Are Like Seashells Photopolymer Stamp Set for my clean and layered card today.

I hope you will take a moment to visit The Card Concepts and join us for our challenge #178.  How are you inspired by this photo?

I played along with the Alphabet Challenge ‘F is for Friendship’.

I started by stamping the shell images from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink on a Shimmery White panel. I cut the image out using the largest die from the Seaside Seashells Dies. I them embossed the panel using the Seashells 3D Embossing Folder.

I lined up a panel of Pool Party cardstock with the front of a Basic White Thick card base and using the 2nd largest die from the Deckled Rectangle Dies, I cut both panels together. I put a think bead of Multipurpose Liquid Glue along the edge of the front of the Basic Whtie Thick card base and adhered the die cut shells. I adhered the Pool Party frame over the die cut panel, making sure it lined up with the card base, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. Using my Blending Brush and Balmy Blue Ink, I added color to a panel of Vellum Paper. I adhered the panel of inked Vellum to the inside front of the Basic White Thick card base with the inked side against the die cut image.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sand dollar image from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper. I stamped the sentiment from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set over the sand dollar image in Sahara Sand Ink. I cut the image out using the coordinating die from the Seaside Seashells Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I tied a small double bow using the Crumb Cake bakers twine from the Bakers Twine Essential Pack and adhered it to the card front using a Glue Dot. I added a few Solid Faceted Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the star fish image from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper, on the top of the panel. I stamped the seaweed images form the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Pool Party Ink along the bottom of the panel, some stamped full strength and some stamped off once. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Pool Party mat and then to the inside of the Basic White Thick card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the sand, shells and seaweed images from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set on the bottom front of the envelope and the envelope flap in Crumb Cake, Pool Party and Sahara Sand Inks.

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

Stampin’ Up! Brewed For You For The Card Concepts

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends.  I hope everyone is having a wonderful week. We’ve had a beautiful one here so far.

It’s time for another inspiration challenge for The Card Concepts. The inspiration photo is Make It Masculine. We all know the struggle with masculine cards. Here is my card that was inspired from the challenge photo.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Brewed For You Bundle along with the He’s The Man Designer Series Paper for my Clean and Layered Card. I was inspired by the Colors from the Inspiration Photo.

I hope you will take a moment to visit The Card Concepts and join us for our challenge #177.  How are you inspired by this photo?

My design is from Inspire. Create Challenge #118.

I started by adhering a panel of He’s The Man DSP to an Early Espresso card base. I adhered another strip of He’s The Man DSP to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered one of the die cut pieces from He’s The Man DSP to the card front. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Brewed For You Photopolymer Stamp Set on the bottom of the die in Early Espresso Ink. I cut a panel of Crushed Curry cardstock using the largest circle from Beautiful Shapes Dies. I adhered the circle to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the beer mug image from the Brewed For You stamp set in Early Espresso Ink. I stamped the fill image in Crushed Curry Ink. I stamped the foam image from the Brewed For You stamp set in Soft Suede Ink. I cut the beer mug and foam image out using the Brewed Dies. I adhered the foam and mug to the Crushed Curry circle using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Brewed For You stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the bubble image from the Brewed For You stamp set in Soft Suede Ink around the sentiment. I adhered a strip of He’s The Man DSP to the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Crushed Curry mat and then to the inside of the Early Espresso card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the beer mug from Brewed For You stamp set on the envelope front the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of He’s The Man 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! Bottled Happiness

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends and welcome to the weekend. I hope you have something fun in the works this weekend.

I played with a few different things for today’s card, stamps, ink, paper, dies, punch, embossing. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Bottled Happiness Bundle along with the Fabulous Frames Dies and the Timeworn Type 3e Embossing Folder for my card today.

My colors are from the Color Throwdown Challenge #695.

I started by stamped the leaf image from the Stampin’ Up! Bottled Happiness Photopolymer Stamp Set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock. I stamped the floral image from the Bottled Happiness stamp set in Highland Heather Ink over the leaf image. I cut the image out using the largest die from the Fabulous Frames Dies making sure the floral image was towards the top. I embossed the floral image panel using the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the embossed panel to a Very Vanilla Thick card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

From a panel of Brushed Metallic cardstock, I cut the corner die from the Fabulous Frames Dies. I adhered the corners to the Very Vanilla frame using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the frame to the Very Vanilla Thick card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the outline bottle image from the Bottled Happiness stamp set in Balmy Blue Ink. I stamped the bottle fill image from the Bottled Happiness stamp set in Balmy Blue Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper. I cut the bottle out using the Vintage Bottle Punch. I adhered the bottle to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Brushed Brass Butterflies to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! go To Greetings Cling Stamp Set in Highland Heather Ink on a Very Vanilla panel. I stamped the floral image from the Bottled Happiness stamp set on the bottom of the panel the same as I did for the card front. I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to the inside of the Very Vanilla Thick card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Very Vanilla Medium Envelope. I stamped the floral image from the Bottled Happiness stamp set on the envelope front the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of Subtle 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. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Lighthouse Point for The Card Concepts

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends.  I hope everyone is having a wonderful week. Did you ever have one of those days where you can’t get out of your own way? That was my day yesterday. Because of that, I had a very productive day. I had a hair appointment in the morning. I followed that by going grocery shopping (which I hate to do anymore). When I got home, I had no crafting mojo, so I went outside to weed 1 of my flower gardens. That led to weeding 3 of them, cutting some tree branches and cleaning up around my yard. Before I knew it my son was leaving for work, which was 3pm. I finished up outside and went in to do laundry. I finally was able to sit down to work on my blog when I got a text that my daughter was on the train on her way home from school. I picked her up and then it was off to Costco. Needless to say, I never got to my craft table, but I got a lot done and by the end of the day I was content that I did something on my day off.

It’s time for another inspiration challenge for The Card Concepts. The inspiration photo is Red, White & Blue. Here is my card that was inspired from the challenge photo.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Lighthouse Point Bundle along with the Stampin’ Up! Ocean Front Photopolymer Stamp Set, the Stampin’ Up! On The Horizon Cling Stamp Set and the Stamin’ Up! Gentle Waves Cling Stamp Set for my Clean Graphic Card. I was inspired by the colors from the inspiration photo.

I hope you will take a moment to visit The Card Concepts and join us for our challenge #176.  How are you inspired by this photo?

I started by using my Water Painter with Tahitian Tide Ink and coloring the top of a Basic White panel. I stamped the bottom of the panel using the Gentle Waves stamp with Starry Sky Ink. I stamped a strip of Sahara Sand cardstock using the sand image from the Ocean Front stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink. I tore the panel to give it the sand image. I adhered the strip of Sahara Sand cardstock to the bottom of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I cut the panel using my Deckled Rectangle Die. I adhered the panel to a Starry Sky card base. I stamped the bird image from the On The Horizon stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the top of the panel.

Using my Lighthouse Dies, I cut the solid lighthouse from a panel of Sweet Sorbet cardstock. I cut the detailed lighthouse from a panel of Basic White cardstock. I cut the lighthouse top from a panel of Basic Black cardstock and the rail from a scrap of Silver Foil Paper. I cut the top of the solid Sweet Sorbet lighthouse with my Paper Snips. I adhered the lighthouse top to the solid panel. I adhered the detailed lighthouse over the Sweet Sorbet lighthouse using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the Silver Foil rail to the top of the detailed panel. I adhered the lighthouse to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Lighthouse Point Photopolymer Stamp Set in Starry Sky Ink. I cut the sentiment out using my Lighthouse Dies. I tied a Carrick Bend Knot using my Crumb Cake Bakers Twine from the Baker’s Twine Essential Pack. I adhered the knot to the sentiment and adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Pebbles Enamel Shapes around the lighthouse and Faux Sea Glass Shapes along the sand.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Lighthouse Point stamp set in Starry Sky Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the lighthouse image from the Lighthouse Point stamp set in Sweet Sorbet Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper, on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the detailed lighthouse image over the solid image in Sweet Sorbet Ink. I stamped the splotch image from the Lighthouse Point stamp set in Tahitian Tide Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper, over the sentiment. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Sweet Sorbet mat and then to the inside of the Starry Sky card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the lighthouse image from the Lighthouse Point stamp set in Sweet Sorbet Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper, on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the 2022-2024 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Cup Of Tea Thanks

Good Monday morning my stamping friends and Happy National World Turtle Day. My daughter LOVES turtles so I know this day LOL. How was everyone’s weekend? I enjoyed my day off yesterday. After doing a little cleaning and weeding I got to spend some time at my craft table. I could weed every day and those weeds just don’t go away. My neighbors probably think I’m crazy out there weeding at 6am. I bring my dog out to the backyard and while I’m waiting for her, I pull some weeds. I have multiple flower gardens in my backyard and there always seems to be weeds in them no matter how much I try. Once everything really starts to bloom, I’m hoping you won’t really be able to see the weeds.

I have a quick card today using one of my favorite sets from the new 2022-2023 Annual Catalog. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Cup Of Tea Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Tea Boutique 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper and the Amazing Thanks Dies for my card today.

My design is from the Hand Stamped Sentiments Sketch Challenge #389.

I started by adhering a panel of the Tea Boutique DSP to a Petal Pink card base. I adhered a panel of Calypso Coral cardstock to the card front using Stampin’ Seal

I cut a panel of Basic White cardstock into a banner using my Paper Snips. I stamped the teacup image from the Cup of Tea stamp set in Gray Granite Ink on the banner. I stamped the leaf image from the Cup of Tea stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink on the top of the cup. I colored the teacup using my Petal Pink and Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the banner to the card front. I added a few Fun Flowers Resin Shapes to the stamped leaf image.

Using my Amazing Thanks Dies I cut the sentiment from a panel of Calypso Coral cardstock. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Cup of Tea stamp set in Gray Granite Ink on a Basic White Panel. I stamped the teacup image from the Cup of Tea stamp set on the bottom of the panel in Gray Granite Ink. I stamped the leaf image on top of the teacup in Soft Sea Foam Ink. I colored the image using my Petal Pink and Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a strip of the Tea Boutique DSP to the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Calypso Coral mat and then to the inside of the Petal Pink card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the teacup image from the Cup of Tea stamp set in Gray Granite Ink on the envelope front. I stamped the leaf image from the Cup of Tea stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink on the cup. I colored the image using my Petal Pink and Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of the Tea Boutique 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! Mischievous Mice Thanks

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend? It was a rainy one here Saturday but turned out to be pretty nice on Sunday. Yesterday after our team meeting, I finally got some of my Paper Pumpkin kits finished. I’m determined to get myself caught up with all the kits I have and then maybe I can get them done as they come in each month. I was able to finish 3 kits, which was 27 cards. I have one kit sitting on my table all taken apart to finish after work today.

Today’s card uses the basics, Stamps, Ink and Paper. I thought I’d do something simple for a change, lol. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Mischievous Mice Cling Host Stamp Set for my card today.

My design is from Inspire. Create. Challenge #116.

I started by stamping the mouse image from the Mischievous Mice stamp set on a panel of Basic White cardstock in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image in using my Crumb Cake, Flirty Flamingo, Gray Granite, Smoky Slate and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I stamped the splatter image from the Stampin’ Up! Color & Contour Photopolymer Stamp Set in So Saffron Ink on the 2 corners of the panel.

I stamped the sentiment from the Mischievous Mice stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink next to the mouse image on the card front. I adhered the card front to a Basic White Thick card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Mischievous Mice stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the splatter image from the Color & Contour stamp set in So Saffron Ink on the 2 corners of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to the inside of the Basic White Thick card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the mouse image and the sentiment from the Mischievous Mice stamp set on the envelope front in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of Subtle 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to the envelope flap.

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

Stampin’ Up! Ranunculus Romance for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. I hope everyone is doing well today. If you are hopping over from Akiko Sudano’s blog, thank you for stopping by. This week we have a Sketch Challenge. Here is my card using this week’s Sketch.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Ranunculus Romance Bundle from the January-June 2022 Mini Catalog for my card today.

Here’s our sketch for this week.

My colors are from the TGIF Challenge #367.

I started by adhering a panel of Heart & Home Designer Series Paper to a Soft Succulent card base. I cut a panel of Soft Succulent and Artfully Composed Designer Series Paper using the 4th largest Stitched Rectangle Dies. I adhered the 2 rectangles together using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered die cuts to the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the rose image from the Stampin’ Up! Ranunculus Romance Cling Stamp Set in Smoky Slate Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper. I colored the image using my Fresh Freesia and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image out using the coordinating die from the Ranunculus Dies and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. From panels of Fresh Freesia, Shimmery White and Vellum Paper, I cut 2 of the small floral dies using the Ranunculus Dies from each panel. I adhered them behind the rose die using small amounts of Multipurpose Liquid Glue and Glue Dots.

On a panel of Soft Succulent cardstock, I stamped the script image from the Ranunculus Romance stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink. I stamped the sentiment from the Ranunculus Romance stamp set in Versamark Ink on top of the script image. I sprinkled it with my White Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I cut the sentiment out using the narrowest die from the Stitched Rectangle Dies and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few 2021-2023 In- Color Opal Rounds to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Ranunculus Romance stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the rose image from the Ranunculus Romance stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper, next to the sentiment. I colored the image using my Fresh Freesia and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Fresh Freesia mat and then to the inside of the Soft Succulent card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the rose image from the Ranunculus Romance stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper, on the envelope front and colored it using my Fresh Freesia and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of Heart & Home DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Shaded Summer Tea for The Card Concepts

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. We’re halfway through the week already and on our way to the weekend. I hope everyone is having a wonderful week.

It’s time for another inspiration challenge for The Card Concepts. The inspiration photo is May Flowers. Here is my card that was inspired from the challenge photo.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Shaded Summer Cling Stamp Set along with the Stampin’ Up! Cup of Tea Photopolymer Stamp Set and Tea Boutique 6X 6 Designer Series Paper for my Clean and Layered Card. I was inspired by the beautiful flowers and colors from the inspiration photo.

I hope you will take a moment to visit The Card Concepts and join us for our challenge #175.  How are you inspired by this photo?

I started by embossing a panel of Basic White cardstock using the Pretty Flowers Embossing Folder. I marked the panel on the right side down 2 1/4″. I cut from the bottom left corner to the 2 1/4″ mark using my Paper Trimmer. I adhered the embossed panel to a Calypso Coral card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the layered panel to a Calypso Coral card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered a panel of Tea Boutique DSP to the center of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I colored the smaller floral stamp from the Shaded Summer stamp set using my Calypso Coral, Petal Pink and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Write Markers and stamped the image on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I cut the image out using the coordinating die from the Summer Shadow Dies. I cut the solid teacup from the Teacup Dies from a panel of Tea Boutique DSP. I adhered the flower image to the back of the teacup using a Glue Dot and then to the card front on the DSP using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the tea tag image from the Cup of Tea stamp set in Pale Papaya Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the sentiment from the Cup of Tea stamp set inside the tag in Calypso Coral Ink. I cut the tag out using the Teacup Dies. Using my Label Me Fancy Punch, I punched the small hole in the top of the tag. I colored a piece of White Baker’s Twine, from the Baker’s Twine Essential Pack, using my Pale Papaya Stampin’ Blends Markers and threaded it through the hole on the tag. I adhered the Baker’s Twine behind the tag and behind the cut with a small piece of Tear & Tape. I added a few Calypso Coral Polished Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Shaded Summer stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink on a Basic White panel. I colored the small floral image from the Shaded Summer stamp set using my Calypso Coral, Petal Pink and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends Markers and stamped it on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Petal Pink mat and then to the inside of the Calypso Coral card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the floral image from the Shaded Summer stamp set on the envelope front colored the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of Tea Boutique 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 for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. I hope everyone is doing well today. If you are hopping over from Akiko Sudano’s blog, thank you for stopping by. This week we have a Sketch Challenge. Here is my card using this week’s Sketch.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Pansy Patch Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Brilliance Bundle (bundle price only available until May 2nd), and the Tea Boutique 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my card today.

Here’s our sketch for this week.

My colors are from the Cupcake Inspiration Challenge #542.

I started by adhering a panel of Tea Boutique DSP to a Basic Black mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered layer to a Parakeet Party card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I embossed a panel of Fresh Freesia 2021-2023 In-Color Shimmer Vellum using the Pretty Flowers Embossing Folder. I adhered the Shimmer Vellum to the card front using Stampin’ Seal only under where the sentiment and butterfly were placed.

Using my Brilliant Wings Dies, I cut a solid butterfly from a panel of Daffodil Delight cardstock. I cut the coordinating detailed butterfly from a panel of Basic Black cardstock. I adhered the detailed butterfly to the solid butterfly just on the body using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the butterfly to the vellum panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added black Adhesive-Backed Hexagons to the butterfly body.

On a strip of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Pansy Patch stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I adhered the sentiment to the vellum panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Brushed Brass Butterflies to the card front.

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Pansy Patch stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the butterfly image from the Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Brillance Cling Stamp Set in Daffodil Delight Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper, next to the sentiment. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Basic Black mat and then to the inside of the Parakeet Party card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the butterfly image from the Butterfly Brilliance stamp set in Daffodil Delight Ink, stamping off once, on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of Tea Boutique DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for visiting my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Now that you’ve seen my card, take a minute to hop through and see everyone’s projects today.

Stampin’ Up! Honeybee Home for The Card Concepts

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. We’re halfway through the week already and on our way to the weekend. I hope everyone is having a wonderful week.

It’s time for another inspiration challenge for The Card Concepts. The inspiration photo is How Does Your Garden Grow. Here is my card that was inspired from the challenge photo.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Honeybee Bundle along with the Stampin’ Up! Dragonfly Garden Cling Stamp Set and Heart & Home Designer Series paper for my Free Style Collage Card. I was inspired by the beautiful flowers and colors from the inspiration photo.

I hope you will take a moment to visit The Card Concepts and join us for our challenge #174.  How are you inspired by this photo?

I started by adhering a panel of Heart & Home DSP to a Basic White Thick card base. I stamped the daisy image from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. Using my Blending Brush, I added Tahitian Tide Ink (available May 3rd) on the Basic White panel around the stamped image. I colored the image using my Daffodil Delight and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the panel using my Stitched Rectangle Dies.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the foxglove flower and bumblebee images from the Stampin’ Up! Honeybee Home Stamp Set 3 times in Tuxedo Black Ink. I cut the images out with the coordinating from the Honeybee Blooms Dies. I colored the images in using my Basic Black, Daffodil Delight, Flirty Flamingo, Melon Mambo and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers. On the panel of Basic White cardstock, using my Blending Brush I added Orchid Oasis Ink (available May 3rd). I cut one of the stand alone dies from the Honeybee Blooms Dies twice from the inked area. I cut the other stand alone die from the Honeybee Blooms Dies from a panel of Orchid Oasis cardstock (available may 3rd) twice. I cut 3 of the grass dies from the Honeybee Blooms Dies from a panel of Old Olive cardstock.

I arranged all the die-cut pieces on the stamped panel of Basic White cardstock. I adhered the flowers and grass die cuts with Stampin’ Dimensionals, Glue Dots and Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I wrapped a piece of the 2022-2024 In-Color Baker’s Twine (available May 3rd) around the panel twice and tied a bow. I adhered the panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Pebbles Enamel Shapes along the bottom of the panel.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the flower and bumblebee images from the Honeybee Home stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the panel and colored them using my Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic Whtie panel to the inside of the Basic White Thick card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the flower image from the Honeybee Home stamp set on the envelope front and colored it using my Melon Mambo and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of Heart & Home 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!!
