Stampin’ Up! Cottage Rose Sympathy

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends. I hope everyone’s week has started off good. I finally have a day off today and I have a few errands to run. I have to take Coraline for the last of her puppy shots and she’ll finally be allowed to play with other puppies if she wishes.

I have a clean and simple card today for you using sets from the Annual Catalog. The one set is going to be used on Saturday for World Card Making Day for the Stampin’ Up! event, details, below. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Cottage Rose Sympathy 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Cottage Rose Cling Stamp Set, Stampin’ Up! Go To Greetings Cling Stamp Set, Stampin’ Up! Inspired Thoughts Cling Stamp Set and the Abigail Rose Designer Series Paper for my CAS card today.

My sketch today is from Sunday Stamps Challenge #292.

Stampin' Up! Cottage Rose Sympathy 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by adhering a panel of Abigail Rose DSP to a Basic White Thick card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Cottage Rose Sympathy 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the large rose image from the Cottage Rose stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink. I adhered the stamped panel to a Smoky Slate mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Go To Greetings stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink. I adhered the sentiment to a Smoky Slate mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Inspired Thoughts stamp set in Smoky slate Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the leaf image from the Cottage Rose stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink on either side of the sentiments. I adhered a strip of Abigail Rose DSP to the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Smoky Slate mat then to the inside of the Basic White Thick card base.

Stampin’ Up! Ranunculus Romance for The Card Concepts

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. We’re halfway through and on our way to the weekend. I hope everyone’s week is going well. I had 1 day off this week, and it was yesterday. I made the most of it for sure. By 9am I had brought my daughter to the train station, started laundry, did a sink full of dishes from a mess I made, and I had 20 containers of homemade pesto made. My basil was unbelievable this year, I had leaves the size of my hand, and the smell was amazing. The rest of the day was spent doing my normal chores around the house, running errands, taking the puppy out multiple times, appointments a little bit of gardening and finding time to catch up on emails. I’m really looking forward to my next day off, next Tuesday, already lol.

It’s time for an inspiration challenge for The Card Concepts. This week we have 2 inspiration photos. The inspiration is Travel Abroad or Stay At Home. You can pick something from the photo, or you can go with the colors. Here is my card that was inspired from the 1st challenge photo.

Stampin' Up! Ranunculus Romance Hello 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Ranunculus Romance Cling Stamp Set along with the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Moments Cling Stamp Set, Rectangle Postage Stamp Punch and the Vellum Layering Designs Paper for my Clean and Layered card this week.

I hope you will take a moment to visit The Card Concepts and join us for our challenge #180a or 180b.  Which of the photos are your inspired by?

Stampin' Up! Ranunculus Romance Hello 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by adhering a panel of the Vellum Layering Designs Paper to a Basic Black card base. I only put the adhesive behind where I was going to put the artwork since you can see it through the vellum.

Stampin' Up! Ranunculus Romance Hello 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

From a panel of Basic White cardstock, using my Rectangle Postage Stamp Punch, I punched out 5 rectangles. On 2 of the rectangles, I stamped the floral images from the Ranunculus Romance stamp set in Balmy Blue Ink. On 2 of the rectangles, I first stamped the script image in So Saffron Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper. I then stamped the sentiments in Tuxedo Black Ink over the script. On the last rectangle, I stamped the Eiffel Tower image from the Ranunculus Romance stamp set in Poppy Parade Ink.

Stampin' Up! Ranunculus Romance Hello 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

I adhered the punched rectangle stamps to So Saffron mats using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the layered panels to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

Stampin' Up! Ranunculus Romance Hello 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Peaceful Moments stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the rose image from the Ranunculus Romance stamp set in Balmy Blue Ink on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a So Saffron mat then to the inside of the Basic Black card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the images from the Ranunculus Romance stamp set in Balmy Blue, Poppy Parade, So Saffron and Tuxedo Black on the envelope front and flap.

Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Brilliance 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. I’m not sure if I’ll be able to go live today on my Facebook page since today’s the first day I’m back in the office since last Thursday. I will post something on my Facebook page if I will be going live at 4pm ET.

It’s time for an inspiration challenge for The Card Concepts after a few weeks off for the summer. The inspiration photo is Change of Seasons. Here is my card that was inspired from the challenge photo.

Stampin' Up! Butterfly Brilliance 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I hope you will take a moment to visit The Card Concepts and join us for our challenge #179.  How are you inspired by this photo?

Stampin' Up! Butterfly Brilliance 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by adhering 2 strips of Tahitian Tide cardstock to a Tea Boutique DSP card front using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the panel to a Basic White Thick card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Butterfly Brilliance 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the largest butterfly image from the Butterfly Brilliance stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I cut the butterfly out using the Brilliant Wings Dies. I then colored the butterfly image using my So Saffron, Sweet Sorbet and Tahitian Tide Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the butterfly to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals just in the center bending the wings up a bit.

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends. I hope your week has started out great. I’ll be taking Coraline today for her last puppy shots YAY!! Now she’ll be able to play with other dogs and socialize with everyone.

I have a Christmas card for you today. I’m trying to get at least 1 done a week for now. Once we get a little closer I’ll start getting more done. I just can’t get into making them yet with it being in the upper 80’s & 90’s I’m just not feeling it. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Christmas Season To Remember 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Christmas To Remember Cling Stamp Set along with the Stampin’ Up! Christmas Season Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Painted Christmas Designer Series Paper for my card today.

My design is from the Paper Craft Crew Sketch Challenge #482.

Stampin' Up! Christmas Season To Remember 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

Stampin’ Up! Soft Seedlings 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’s blog, thank you for stopping by. This week we have a Sketch Challenge. Here is my card using this week’s Sketch.

Stampin' Up! Soft Seedlings CAS 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Soft Seedlings Cling Stamp Set along with the Rustic Harvest Designer Series Paper for my card today.

This is our sketch for this week.

I played along with the Paper Players Color Challenge #604.

Stampin' Up! Soft Seedlings CAS 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by adhering a panel of Rustic Harvest DSP to a Basic White Thick card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Soft Seedlings CAS 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the large leaf image and the sentiment from the Soft Seedlings stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I embossed the panel using my Leaf Fall 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered 2 strips of Real Red Glimmer Paper from the Real Red and White 6 X 6 Glimmer Paper behind the stamped panel.

Stampin' Up! Soft Seedlings CAS 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

Stampin' Up! Soft Seedlings CAS 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside, I stamped the sentiments and the seedlings image from the Soft Seedlings stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Real Red mat and then to the inside of the Basic White Thick card base.

Stampin' Up! Soft Seedlings CAS 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the seedling image from the Soft Seedlings stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the Rustic Harvest DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Amazing Phrasing CAS

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. We’re halfway through the week and on our way to the weekend. I hope you are all having a great week. By the time you read this I will already be at work. I had to go in early today to get done what I have to. My husband, daughter and I will be catching the 11am train to New York City to go see a play. The play is at 2pm which means, I will not be going live today on my Facebook page. Last week when I said I’d be back this week, I completely forgot about the play. I will plan on being back next Wednesday at 4pm. If I’m able to go live another day, I’ll let you know on my Facebook page.

Today’s card is a clean and simple one using only Stamps, Ink and Paper. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Amazing Phrasing CAS 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Sale-a-bration Amazing Phrasing Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Stampin’ Up! Go To Greetings Cling Stamp Set and the Artistic Mix Decorative Masks for my card today.

I played along with Just Us Girls Trend Week Challenge #645, Use A Stencil.

My colors are from the Cupcake Inspiration Color Challenge #550.

Stampin' Up! Amazing Phrasing CAS 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by placing the Artistic Mix Decorative Mask over a Basic White card front. I adhered a strip of Post-It Tape through the middle of the mask and panel. Using my Blending Brush, I added Blushing Bride Ink on the top and bottom of the tape.

Stampin' Up! Amazing Phrasing CAS 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

I stamped the sentiments from the Amazing Phrasing stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink in the un-inked area.

Stampin' Up! Amazing Phrasing CAS 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

I adhered the stenciled card front to a Smoky Slate mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to a Blushing Bride card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Amazing Phrasing CAS 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside, I used my Artistic Mix Mask and added Blushing Bride Ink with my Blending Brush on the top of a Basic White panel. I stamped the sentiment from the Go To Greetings stamp set in smoky Slate Ink below the stenciling. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Smoky Slate mat and then to the inside of the Blushing Bride card base.

Stampin' Up! Amazing Phrasing CAS 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. Using the Artistic Mix Mask, I used my Blending Brush and added Blushing Bride Ink to the bottom front of the envelope and the envelope flap. I stamped the sentiment from the Amazing Phrasing stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink on the envelope front.

Stampin’ Up! Friends Are Like Seashells Thank You

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend. It’s been hot and humid here still and I have no desire to be outside. I’ll be at the dog bakery today and since it’s been so hot, not many dogs have been coming in.

I had fun playing and building today’s card. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Friends Are Like Seashells Thank You 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Friends Are Like Seashells Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Rustic Harvest Designer Series Paper for my card today.

My design is from Try Stampin’ On Tuesday Challenge #567.

My colors are from Color Throwdown challenge #704. Although the colors don’t scream beachy, I made it work, I think.

Stampin' Up! Friends Are Like Seashells Thank You 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by adhering a panel of Rustic Harvest DSP to a Crumb Cake card base. I cut 9 of the smallest circles from the Layering Circle Dies from a panel of Basic White cardstock. I cut 9 of the smallest scalloped circles from the Layering Circle Dies from a panel of Basic Black cardstock. On the 5 Basic White circles I stamped the seaweed images from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Mossy meadow Ink, one stamped full strength and one stamped off once on scrap paper. On the remaining 4 circles I stamped the 2 smallest seashell images from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink.

Stampin' Up! Friends Are Like Seashells Thank You 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

I adhered the 9 Basic White circles to the 9 Basic Black scalloped circles using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the layered circles to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Friends Are Like Seashells Thank You 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I cut the sentiment out using my Seasonal Labels Dies. I adhered a piece of Black Baker’s Twine from the Baker’s Twine Essential Pack to the card front using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the sentiment over the twine using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Classic Matte Dots by the sentiment and a couple Pearl Basic Jewels on 2 of the seashell circles.

Stampin' Up! Friends Are Like Seashells Thank You 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the seaweed images from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink on the bottom of the panel, one stamped in full strength and the others stamped off once on scrap paper. I stamped the seashell image next to the seaweed in Crumb Cake Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Mossy Meadow mat and then to the inside of the Crumb Cake card base.

Stampin' Up! Friends Are Like Seashells Thank You 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the seaweed image from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Mossy Meadow ink on the bottom front of the envelope. I stamped the seashell image from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink next to the seaweed. I adhered a panel of the Rustic Harvest DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Trimming The Tree CAS

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends and welcome to the weekend. I hope you are making some fun plans. I’ll be working all day today and I have this feeling that it is going to be busy. Today is our annual Children’s Miracle Network Promotion. Customers donate $5, get a 5-gallon bucket and almost anything they can fit into that bucket they get 20% off of. Good deal and a lot of people look forward to it.

I have a CAS Christmas card today using a set from the Annual Catalog along with some Sale-a-bration DSP that is still available. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Trimming The Tree CAS 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

My CAS card today features the Stampin’ Up! Trimming The Tree Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Lights Aglow 6 X 6 Specialty Designer Series Paper and the Silver & Gold 6 X 6 Sale-a-bration Specialty Paper.

My design is from Global Design Project Sketch Challenge #354.

My colors are from Cardz 4 Galz Challenge #178 Black+White +1 Other Colour. I used Gold for my additional color.

Stampin' Up! Trimming The Tree CAS 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by adhering a panel of the Silver & Gold DSP to a panel of Gold Foil Paper. I adhered the layered panel to a Basic White Thick card base.

Stampin' Up! Trimming The Tree CAS 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Trimming the Tree stamp set in Versamark Ink. I sprinkled it with my Gold Embossing Powder from my Metallic Embossing Powder. I set it using my Heat Tool.

Stampin' Up! Trimming The Tree CAS 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

I cut the sentiment out using the Designer Tags Dies. I cut a panel of Lights Aglow DSP using the same Designer Tags Dies. I cut the tag partially then moved the die down on the paper and cut it from the other side to make the tag longer. I threaded a piece of Gold Simply Elegant Trim through the tags and knotted them off. I adhered the tags to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a Brushed Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dot to the sentiment.

Stampin' Up! Trimming The Tree CAS 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment and bow image from the Trimming the Tree stamp set in Versamark Ink on a Basic White panel. I sprinkled it with my Gold Embossing Powder and set it with my Heat Tool. I adhered a strip of the Lights Aglow DSP to the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Basic Black mat and then to the inside of the Basic White Thick card base.

Stampin' Up! Trimming The Tree CAS 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of the Lights Aglow DSP to the envelope front and a panel to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern Sympathy

Good Monday morning my stamping friends and welcome to August. I can’t believe I’m saying that. This means that this is the last month of Sale-a-bration and things are selling out. How was everyone’s weekend? I hope you were able to do something fun.

Today’s card is one of those cards you don’t want to make, but sometimes you just have to. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! forever Fern Sympathy 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern Cling Stamp Set along with the Stampin’ Up! Go To Greetings Cling Stamp Set and the Stampin’ Up! Inspired Thoughts Cling Stamp Set for my card today.

My colors are from the Color Throwdown Challenge #703.

My design is from Freshly Made Sketches #546 – A Sketch by Amy.

Stampin' Up! forever Fern Sympathy 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by using a Post-It note that I cut a circle using the Layered Circles Dies and adhered it to a Very Vanilla card front. Using my Blending Brush, I added Crumb Cake Ink inside the circle. Before removing the mask, I stamped the leaf image from the Forever Fern stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink.

Stampin' Up! forever Fern Sympathy 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

Using another Post-It note and a smaller die from the Layering Circles Dies, I adhered it on the bottom and added Balmy Blue Ink using my Blending Brush. I moved the Post-It note to the top and added Balmy Blue Ink again using my Blending Brush.

Stampin' Up! forever Fern Sympathy 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

I stamped the sentiment from the Go To Greetings stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink on the top of the panel. I added a small bow with a Glue Dot using Crumb Cake Baker’s Twine from the Baker’s Twine Essential Pack. I adhered the card front to a Very Vanilla Thick card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! forever Fern Sympathy 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside, I stamped the sentiments from the Inspired Thoughts stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink on a Very Vanilla panel. I stamped the leaf image from the Forever Fern stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink on both sides of the panel. I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Crumb Cake mat and then to the inside of the Very Vanilla Thick card base.

Stampin’ Up! Gathered Wheat

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend? It was definitely a hot one here. It’s supposed to cool down to the 90’s this week. How is it by all or you?

Today’s card I played with another new set that I just got last week. I thought I had ordered it with my 1st order and when I went to use it, I realized I forgot to order it. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Gathered Wheat 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Gathered Wheat Bundle along with the Stampin’ Up! Go To Greetings Cling Stamp Set and the Gingham Cottage Designer Series Paper for my card today.

My colors are from CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge #479.

My design is from the Sunday Stamps X Marks The Spot Sketch Challenge #288.

Stampin' Up! Gathered Wheat 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by adhering a panel of Gingham Cottage DSP to a Blushing Bride card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On a panel of Soft Sea Foam cardstock, I stamped the smaller wheat image from the Stampin’ Up! Gathered Wheat Cling Stamp Set in Soft Sea Foam Ink. I cut the panel using my Stitched Rectangle Dies. I adhered the panel to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Gathered Wheat 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the wheat image from the Gathered Wheat stamp set in So Saffron Ink and the sentiment from the Go To Greetings stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink. I stamped the splatter image from the Gathered Wheat stamp set in So Saffron Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper, multiple times around the sentiment. I cut the image and sentiment out using my Stitched Rectangle Dies. I adhered the 2 panels to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Gathered Wheat 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

I cut 3 of the die cut wheat from the Wheat Dies from a panel of So Saffron cardstock. I adhered the die cut pieces to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I tied a multiple loop bow using Linen Thread and adhered it to the bottom of the wheat dies using a Glue Dot. I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

Stampin' Up! Gathered Wheat 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

I stamped the sentiment from the Gathered Wheat stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the smaller wheat image from the Gathered Wheat stamp set in So Saffron Ink on the side of the panel. I stamped the splatter image from the Gathered Wheat stamp set in So Saffron Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper, multiple times on the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Soft Sea Foam mat and then to the inside of the Blushing Bride card base.

Stampin' Up! Gathered Wheat 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the wheat and splatter images from the Gathered Wheat stamp set in So Saffron Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of Gingham Cottage DSP to the envelope flap.
