Stampin’ Up Garden Shed Thank You Card

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  How has your week started out? Can you believe we are already at the last week of June?

For today I have a very clean and simple card for you.  This is as simple as I can get,  Paper, Ink and Stamp, perfect for the beginner stamper.  Here’s my card.

My card played along with the Fab Friday Challenge #166.  Their challenge was to use the 2019-2021 In-Colors.

I started with a Whisper White card front and stamped the largest image from the Stampin’ Up Garden Shed Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I also stamped the small flower pot image from the Garden Shed stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the card front.

I colored the images in using my Pretty Peacock, Purple Posy, Rococo Rose and Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers.  Since we don’t have a Terracotta Tile Stampin’ Blend Marker yet, I used the Terracotta Tile Re-inker and my Aqua Painter filled with alcohol.

I stamped the sentiment from the Garden Shed stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the top of the card front.  I adhered the card front to a Pretty Peacock card base using Snail.

On the inside I stamped the flower pot and watering can image from the Garden Shed stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a Whisper White panel stamping off 3 times.  I stamped the sentiment from the Garden Shed stamp set over the top of the lightly stamped image in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Pretty Peacock card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the flower pot image from the Garden Shed stamp set in Tuxedo blac Memento Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped the flowerpot and watering can image from the Garden Shed stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope flap.  I colored the images in the same as I did for the card front using my Stampin’ Blends Markers.

Thank you for visiting my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try.  This is the perfect card for a beginner stamper using just a Stamp Set, Ink and Paper.   Happy Stamping!!****************************************************************************************************

Stampin’ Up Floral Essence Thank You Card

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Did anyone do anything fun?  I went for a ‘walk’ with my husband and daughter to Duke Foundation which is right near where I live.  There are beautiful gardens, landscaping and waterfalls throughout the foundation.  There are bridges that go over different lakes on the property, one in particular leads to a meditation garden which is simply gorgeous.  Our walk ended up being over 3 hours and 7 1/2 miles long.

For today’s card I used a few different stamp sets.  I picked one for my focal image, one for the stripes and 2 different ones for the sentiments.  I like mixing stamps set on cards to give it a different look sometimes.  I was pretty happy how my card came out and all I used was Stamp, Ink and Paper, the basics to card making.   Here’s my card.

My card was inspired by 2 challenges.  First was the Colour & Sketch Challenge #326.  Here are their colors.

The other one that inspired me was the Just Add Ink Challenge #462.  Here is their sketch.

I started by stamping the sketched flower from the Stampin’ Up Floral Essence Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I stamped the solid flowers from the Floral Essence stamp set on either side of the sketched flower in Gorgeous Grape Ink using the masking technique.  I stamped the leaves from the Floral Essence stamp set around the flowers in Mossy Meadow Ink.  I stamped the center of the flowers in Sahara Sand Ink stamping off once.  I colored the sketched flower in using my Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blends Markers and my Light Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blends Marker to color the leaves.  I adhered the artwork to a Gorgeous Grape mat using Snail.

On a Whisper White card front I stamped the distressed filigree image from the Stampin’ Up Woven Heirlooms Cling Stamp Set using Calypso Coral and Mossy Meadow Inks.  I adhered the card front to a Gorgeous Grape card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the top corner of the artwork, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up New Wonders Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on an angle.  I adhered the matted artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the larger solid flower image from the Floral Essence stamp set in Calypso Coral Ink on the bottom corner of a Whisper White panel. I stamped the smaller solid flower image from the Floral Essence stamp set in Gorgeous Grape Ink, stamping off once, on either side of the Calypso Coral flower.  I stamped the leaves from the Floral Essence stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink around the flowers.  I stamped the flower centers in Sahara Sand Ink stamping off once.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Well Said Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of the Whisper White panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Gorgeous Grape card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the flowers from the Floral Essence stamp set on the envelope front the same way I did on the inner liner.  I stamped the distressed filigree image from the Woven Heirlooms stamp set on the envelope flap the same way I did on the card front.

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

Stampin’ Up Free As A Bird Thank You Card

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to Fun Fold Friday.  I’m going to try to start making some kind of a Fun Fold card on Friday’s.  I’d love your input if you would like to see this or not.  The weekend is just a few hours away.  Has anyone made plans?  I’ll be working and I’m hoping to get in some craft time.

For my first Fun Fold Friday I have a gate fold card for you using the new Stampin’ Up Free As A Bird Cling Stamp Set.  Here’s my card.

My card played along with a couple challenges.  First is Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #393.  Here is their sketch.

Next I joined in with Color Throwdown Challenge #548. Here are their beautiful colors.

I started by folding my Blushing Bride card base at 2 1/8″ and 6 3/8″ to make the gate fold card.  I then randomly stamped the 2 flower images from the Free As A Bird stamp set in Blushing Bride Ink on the card front.  I stamped the leaf image from the Free As A Bird stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink randomly on the card front.

I stamped the birds on the branch image from the Free As A Bird stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock. I colored the image in using my Crumb Cake, Highland Heather, Mint Macaron and Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered 2 thin strips of Highland Heather cardstock on the top and bottom of the artwork using Snail.  I adhered the artwork to a panel of Mint Macaron cardstock using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Putting Stampin’ Dimensionals only on one side of the matted artwork, I adhered it to my card front.  I also added a few Clear Epoxy Droplets to the artwork.

On the bottom right of my card front, below the artwork, I stamped the sentiment from the Free As A Bird stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.

On the inside I stamped the flowers from the Free As A Bird stamp set in Blushing Bride Ink on the top and bottom corners of a Whisper White panel.  Doing the masking technique, I stamped the leaf image from the Free As A Bird stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink around the flowers.  To do the masking technique, you stamp the flower image on a Post-It note and fussy cut it out.  After you stamp the flowers on the paper, you cover it with the fussy cut Post-It and stamp the leaf image over the top and it looks like it’s behind the flowers.  I stamped the sentiment from the Free As A Bird stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of the Whisper White panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Mint Macaron mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Blushing Bride card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the larger bird image from Free As A Bird stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front.  I colored it in using my Crumb Cake and Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the flowers from the Free As A Bird stamp set in Blushing Bride Ink on the envelope flap.  Doing the masking technique again, I stamped the leaf image from the Free As A Bird stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink.

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

Stampin’ Up Silhouette Scenes Fireworks Birthday Card

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers.  How has your week been?  Only 2 days to get through and the weekend will be here.

For today’s card I had to put my thinking cap on.  I wanted to make fireworks, but I didn’t have a firework stamp.  I also wanted to use the new Stampin’ Up Silhouette Scenes Cling Stamp Set. I’ll admit this card took me a couple tries before I got the ‘fireworks’ to look the way I wanted.  Here’s what I came up with. take a look.

My card played along with some challenges.  You know how much I like to join in with them.  First I played along with CAS On Friday challenge #160.  Their theme is People.

Next I joined in with Festive Friday Challenge #0036.  Here is their theme.  I think fireworks fits for 4th of July and Summer, don’t you?

I also played along with Sunday Stamps Challenge #207.  Here are their colors.

I started by stamped the dandelion cluster from the Stampin’ Up Dandelion Wishes Cling Stamp Set in VersaMark Ink on a panel of Seaside Spray cardstock.  I immediately sprinkled it with the Shimmer White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using the Heat Tool.

I then stamped 2 of the children images from the Silhouette Scenes stamp set in VersaMark Ink on the bottom of the Seaside Spray panel.  I immediately sprinkled them with Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  On a strip of Night of Navy cardstock I stamped part of one of the sentiments from the Silhouette Scenes stamp set in VersaMark Ink.  I immediately sprinkled it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I stamped the bottom part of the sentiment from Silhouette Scenes on the bottom of a Real Red card front in VersaMark Ink.  I immediately sprinkled it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.

I adhered the Seaside Spray artwork panel to the Real Red card front using Snail.  I made a banner out of the Night of Navy strip and adhered it to the left side of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I trimmed off any excess using my Paper Snips.  I adhered the card front to a Sahara Sand card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I added a Clear Rhinestone Basic Jewel to the center ‘firework’.  Using my Dark Night of Navy Stampin’ Blend Marker I colored one of the Clear Rhinestone Basic Jewels and adhered it to one of the ‘fireworks’.  I adhered a Red Rhinestone Basic Jewel to the last ‘firework’.

On the inside I stamped the dandelion cluster from the Dandelion Wishes stamp set in Seaside Spray Ink, stamping off once, on a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Itty Bitty Birthdays Cling Stamp Set over the top of the ‘fireworks’ in Night of Navy Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Night of Navy mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Sahara Sand card base using Multipurpose Liquid glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped 2 of the children images from the Silhouette Scenes stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped the cluster of dandelions from the Dandelion Wishes stamp set in Real Red Ink on the envelope flap.

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  How are you doing today?  I hope everyone’s week has started off well.

For today’s card I did some sponging and some embossing for you.  I have to admit, it took me a couple do-overs before I got this card to look like I wanted and didn’t have any mess ups.  Here’s my card.

My card for today played along with 3 challenges.  First is As You See It challenge #202.  Here are their colors.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Itty Bitty Birthdays Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the top of the panel.  I adhered the artwork to a thin Mossy Meadow mat using Snail.  I then adhered it to a Mossy Meadow card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin’ Up Over The Moon Birthday Card

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Did anyone do anything exciting?  Hope all the dads out there enjoyed the day.

For today’s card I used the adorable new Stampin’ Up Over The Moon Cling Stamp Set from the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.  My son’s birthday is this week.  My little preemie will be turning 24 and he’s over 6′ now.  He definitely takes after me with the height (not really).  Well, he hates puns, so that means I have to find stamp sets that have some kind of pun in them and this one fit perfectly.  Here’s my card.

My card for today also played along with a few challenges.  First off is Fab Friday challenge #165.  Here is their sketch.

Next I played along with Paper Craft Crew challenge #340.  Here is their theme.  I’ve known people that have had cows for pets.

I also played along with Color My Heart Color Dare #347.  Here are their colors.

I started with a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped one of the cow images from the Over The Moon stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the cow in using my Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers.

Using the Masking Technique, I masked the cow with a Post-It note that I had stamped and fussy cut the cow image from.  I then stamped the mountains from the Stampin’ Up Waterfront Photopolymer Stamp Set in Sahara Sand Ink.  I stamped the sand image and dirt image from the Waterfront stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink also.  I stamped the clouds from the Stampin’ Up Above The Clouds Photopolymer Stamp Set in Seaside Spray Ink above the mountain image.  I stamped the sentiment from the Over The Moon stamp set in Blueberry Bushel Ink on the card front.

I adhered the artwork to a Blueberry Bushel mat using Snail.  I adhered the matted artwork to another mat of Seaside Spray cardstock using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered a strip of Burlap Ribbon to the bottom of the Thick Whisper White card base using Snail.  I adhered the double matted artwork to the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped another one of the cow images from the Over The Moon stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, stamping off 4 times so that I got a very light image.  I stamped the clouds from the Above The Clouds stamp set in Seaside Spray Ink stamping off once.  I stamped the sentiment from the Over The Moon stamp set in Blueberry Bushel Ink.  I stamped the Happy Birthday from the Stampin’ Up Itty Bitty Birthday’s Cling Stamp Set in Blueberry Bushel just below the cow image.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Blueberry Bushel mat using Snail and then 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 one of the cow images from the Over The Moon stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the front of the envelope.  I colored the cow in the same as I did for the card.  I stamped the clouds from the Above The Clouds stamp set in Seaside Spray Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped another one of the cow images from the Over The Moon stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope flap and colored it in the same as I did for the card.

Stampin’ Up Lovely Is The Day

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers.  How was your week?  The weekend is upon us again, have you got any plans?  I’m working Saturday, but Sunday, Father’s Day, I have off.  The past couple years I’ve made my husband a Father’s Day brunch, but I’m not sure what we will be doing this year.

For today’s card I used another new bundle from the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.  It’s the Lovely Is The Day Bundle.  The images in this stamp set to me are very whimsical and the Dies that goes with it are so pretty.  The one I used only partially cuts out the image.  Here’s my card.

I joined in with Freshly Made Sketches challenge #392.  Here is their sketch.

I also played along with Stamp Ink Paper challenge #201.  Here are their colors.

I started by adhering a panel of Sahara Sand Neutrals 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Sahara Sand card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the floral image from the Stampin’ Up Lovely Is The Day Photopolymer Stamp Set in Sahara Sand Ink.  I stamped the leaves from Lovely Is The Day stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink and colored the flowers in using my Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blends Markers.  Using the Lovely Leaves Die I cut the image out, which you can see only partially cuts the image.

I stamped the sentiment from the Lovely Is The Day stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink above the floral image.  I adhered the artwork to a Calypso Coral mat using Snail.

On the left side of the artwork I adhered 3 thin strips of cardstock, one Pretty Peacock, one Calypso Coral and one Sahara Sand, using a Glue Dot.  I added a Rhinestone Basic Jewel on each one.  I adhered the matted artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the floral image from Lovely Is The Day stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink on the bottom of a Whisper White panel.  I colored the leaves in using my Pretty Peacock Stampin’ Blends Markers and the flowers in using my Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the sentiment from the Lovely Is The Day stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink above the floral image.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Calypso Coral mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Sahara Sand card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the floral image from the Lovely Is The Day stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink.  I colored it in the same as I did for the card.  I adhered a panel of Sahara Sand Neutrals 6 X 6 DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for visiting my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try.   I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and Happy Father’s Day to any fathers out there.  Happy Stamping!!
