Stampin’ Up Beauty and Joy for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to Fun Fold Friday.  Is everyone ready for the weekend?  Are you making any fun plans?  I’m going to be heading to the shore for the day today.  I’m really looking forward to going and just relaxing for a few hours.  I’m hoping that the water won’t be as rough as it was last time I was there.

I have a sneak peek for you today along with a Fun Fold.  I received my Pre–Order on Tuesday.  I heard the UPS truck coming down my street and I just knew it was for me.  I ran to the door to meet him and got my package and just tore into it.  I was so excited to see my new items and the new Holiday Catalog.  If you’re on my mailing list you will be receiving one soon. This fun fold is another new one that I’ve never done before.  I really had a lot of fun making this one.  This actually might be my new favorite fun fold.  Here’s my card.

Aren’t these colors gorgeous together.  I was inspired by the Global Design Project #201.  Here are their colors.

I also played along with Watercooler Wednesday Challenge #233.  Here is their theme.

I started by adhering a panel of the new Come To Gather Designer Series Paper to the side card front panel using Snail.

I stamped the wicker pot image from the new Stampin’ Up Beauty & Joy Photopolymer Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I stamped the tree trunk image from the Beauty & Joy stamp set in Soft Suede Ink.  I stamped the leaves image from the Beauty & Joy stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink above the tree trunk.  I stamped the tiny flowers from the Beauty & Joy stamp set in Merry Merlot Ink on top of the leaves.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pretty Peacock mat using Snail and then to the side panel of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Beauty & Joy stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink in the center.  I stamped the tiny flowers from the Beauty & Joy stamp set in Merry Merlot Ink in the corners of the Whisper White panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pretty Peacock mat using Snail.  I adhered the matted sentiment to the inside card front right behind the card front artwork using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I added a few Noble Peacock Rhinestones to the bottom of the inside card front.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Strong & Beautiful Cling Stamp Set in the center of the inside of the Whisper White card base in Pretty Peacock Ink.  I stamped the tiny flowers from the Beauty & Joy stamp set in Merry Merlot Ink in the corners.  I adhered the Whisper White card base inside the Merry Merlot card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the tree trunk from the Beauty & Joy stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped the leaves from the Beauty & Joy stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink above the tree trunk on the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of the Come To Gather 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 New Wonders Birthday Card

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers.  Are you almost ready for the weekend?  It’s coming up really quick now.  I never made it to the 4-H Fair yesterday.  We had bad thunder storms and a lot of rain.  I feel bad for all those kids that worked so hard on their projects and with their animals to have the 1st day be rained out.  Today and tomorrow are suppose to be beautiful so hopefully they will have a good turn out.

For today’s card I used a Host Exclusive set.  There are a few sets in the catalogs that are set aside just for hosts to earn.  I used one of my favorites, the Stampin’ Up New Wonders Cling Stamp Set.  I just love the fairy images in this set.  Here’s my card.

I joined in with Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge #320 today.  Here’s their sketch.

I also played along with TGIF Challenge #223.  Here are their colors.

I started by adhering a Coastal Cabana panel of the Brights 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Melon Mambo mat using Snail.  I adhered the matted panel to a Gorgeous Grape card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped one of the fairy images from the New Wonders stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I only colored the hair and skin of the fairy in using my Crumb Cake and Ivory Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the image out using the 2nd largest circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I adhered it to a Melon Mambo scalloped circle mat, which I cut out using my Layering Circles Dies, using Snail.  I adhered the artwork just under the DSP strip using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped the sentiment from the New Wonders stamp set on a strip of Melon Mambo cardstock in VersaMark Ink.  I immediately sprinkled it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I punched the top of the strip using the  Delightful Tag Topper Punch.  I adhered the tag to the card front using a Glue Dot and Stampin’ Dimensional.  I added a small bow that I had made from my Whisper White Solid Bakers Twine and adhered it using a Glue Dot.  I added a few Glitter Enamel Dots to the tag and the card front.

On the inside I stamped another one of the fairy images from the New Wonders stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, stamping off twice, on a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the leaf image from the New Wonders stamp set in all 4 corners in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I stamped the sentiment from the New Wonders stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on top of the fairy image.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Melon Mambo mat using Snail and then 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 fairy image from the New Wonders stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink 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 Above The Clouds Birthday Card

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  How is everyone doing today?  We’re halfway through the week already.  I’ll be making my annual visit to the 4-H fair with my niece and 2 little nephews today.  She loves bringing the boys to see the animals and the train tent along with other tents.  Hopefully the weather will hold off, we’re expecting thunder storms today.  I always feel bad when it rains on the fair.  All the work those kids do and then to get stormed on is horrible.

Onto today’s card.  For today I made you a masculine card.  They are always cards I struggle with.  After the Balloon Festival here in NJ last week I was inspired to make a hot air balloon card.  Here’s my card.

My card joined in with Sunday Stamps Triple The Fun Challenge #210.  Here is their sketch.

I started with a Cajun Craze card front and embossed it using my Subtle 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the card front to a Thick Very Vanilla card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered a panel of Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper to a mat of Mossy Meadow cardstock using Snail and then adhered it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a scrap of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped 3 of the hot air balloons from the Stampin’ Up Above The Clouds Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I stamped 2 of the same and 1 of the other.  I colored the balloons in using my Cajun Craze, Mossy Meadow and Night of Navy Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I punched the balloons out using my Hot Air Balloon Punch.  On a scrap of Crumb Cake cardstock I stamped the balloon basket from the Above The Clouds stamp set 3 times in Crumb Cake Ink.  I punched the baskets out using the Hot Air Balloon Punch.  I cut out 2 of the same size rectangles from the Stitched Rectangles Dies in Crumb Cake cardstock and Very Vanilla cardstock.

On the bottom of the Very Vanilla stitched rectangle I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Itty Bitty Birthday’s Cling Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink.  I adhered the Crumb Cake stitched rectangle to the top of the Very Vanilla stitched rectangle using Snail.  I adhered the baskets to the bottom of the hot air balloons using Glue Dots.  I adhered the 2 similar hot air balloons to the Crumb Cake rectangle using Glue Dots.  I adhered the 3rd hot air balloon in front of the other 2 using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the artwork panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Itty Bitty Birthday’s stamp set in Night of Navy Ink in the center of a Very Vanilla panel.  I stamped the smaller balloon image from the Above The Clouds stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink around the sentiment.  I colored the balloons in using my Cajun Craze, Mossy Meadow and Night of Navy Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Cajun Craze mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Thick Very Vanilla card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card off I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I stamped the smaller balloon image from the Above The Clouds stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored them in the same as I did for the card.  I adhered a panel of Come Sail Away 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 We’ll Walrus Be Friends Birthday Card

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  How has everyone’s week started out? I can’t believe that August is here already.  This summer is flying by way too fast for me.

For today I have  a cute birthday card for you using the Stampin’ Up We’ll Walrus Be Friends Cling Stamp Set.  Here’s my card

My card played along with Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #399.  Here is their sketch.

I started by embossing a Seaside Spray card front using the High Seas 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the card front to a Seaside Spray card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped 3 different walrus images from the We’ll Walrus Be Friends stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on 3 squares of Whisper White cardstock.  I colored them all in using my Curmb Cake and Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the 3 pieces of artwork to 3 Seaside Spray mats using Snail.  I adhered the 3 matted artwork squares to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the We’ll Walrus Be Friends stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on a small strip of Whisper White cardstock.  I adhered the sentiment strip to a Seaside Spray mat using snail and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped another one of the walrus images from the We’ll Walrus Be Friends stamp set in the center of a Whisper White panel in Crumb Cake Ink stamping off twice.  I stamped the sentiment from Stampin’ Up Itty Bitty Birthday’s Cling Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink on top of the stamped off image.  I stamped a couple of the walrus images from We’ll Walrus Be Friends stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the top 2 corners of the Whisper White panel and colored them in using my Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Seaside Spray card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped one of the walrus images from the We’ll Walrus Be Friends stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the envelope front and colored it in the same as I did for the card.  I stamped 3 of the walrus images from the We’ll Walrus Be Friends stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the envelope flap and colored them in the same as I did for the card.

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

Stampin’ Up Painted Harvest Triple Time Thank You

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Did anyone do anything fun?  I actually had a really fun day at work Saturday.  The group that I work with are always a lot of fun.  As busy as it was with our bucket sale going on, we laughed and had a really good time which made the day fly by.  Sunday I was able to get some crafting time in, which is always relaxing for me.

For today’s card I used the Triple Time Technique for you  Here’s my card.

My card played along with the Color Throwdown Challenge #554.  Here are their colors.

I started by layering the 3 Whisper White panels of cardstock together with the tiniest amount of Snail just so that they would stay in place while I was stamping.  I first stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up New Wonders Host Exclusive Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of the smallest Whisper White panel.   I then stamped the 1st part of the sunflower from the Stampin’ Up Painted Harvest Photopolymer Stamp Set randomly around using Real Red Ink that I stamped off once.  I then stamped the 2nd part of the flower from the Painted Harvest stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink on top of the 1st part of the flower.

I stamped all the centers of the flowers from the Painted Harvest stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink.  I stamped the seed image from the Painted Harvest stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink in the center of each flower.  I stamped the 1st part of the leaf image from the Painted Harvest stamp set in Old Olive Ink randomly around the layered panels.  I stamped the 2nd part of the leaf image from the Painted Harvest stamp set in Old Olive Ink on top of the 1st image stamping off once.  I carefully took the panels apart and adhered the small and medium one to a Cherry Cobbler mat using Snail.  I adhered all the layered panels together, making sure to line up the flowers and leaves, using Snail.

I wrapped a piece of Linen Thread around the card front 3 times and tied a knot.  With another piece of Linen Thread I made a double bow and adhered it to the card front using a Glue Dot.  I colored a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels using my Dark Basic Black Stampin’ Blends Marker and adhered them to the smallest panel.  I adhered the card front to a Crumb Cake card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped a few more flowers and leaves from the Painted Harvest stamp set the same as I did for the card front on a Whisper White panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat using Snail and adhered it to the inside of the Crumb Cake card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I did not use a sentiment on the inside so that I could write my own thank you.

To finish my card off I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the flowers and leaves from the Painted Harvest stamp set on the front of the envelope and the envelope flap the same as I did for 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 Seaside Notions for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to Fun Fold Friday.  How was everyone’s week? Ready or not, which I’m assuming most of us are ready, the weekend is here.  Has anyone made any plans?  I’ll be at work this weekend, we’re having a bucket sale for the Children’s Miracle Network.  You make a donation by buying a bucket and almost everything you can fit in the bucket you get 20% off.   I’m sure it will be a busy weekend there.

For today’s card, I’ve seen this one done a few time using a circle.  I’ve decided to be a little different and use a square turned diamond.  Here’s my card.

My card was able to join in with a couple challenges.  First off is The Library Challenge

Next is the Stampin’ Up Only Challenge #228: New Catalog Favorites

I also played along with Watercooler Wednesday Challenge #232 “Anything Goes”

I started with a Pear Pizzazz card base and scored it at 4 1/4″ and 8 1/2″.    I adhered 2 panels of Petal Pink Subtle 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to the card front.  I opened my card base and placed the 2″ square die from the Layering Squares Dies on the shorter end score line having the 2 corners on the score line and cut it out.

I stamped the Coral, Seahorse and Shells from the Stampin’ Up Seaside Notions Cling Stamp Set in Crumb Cake Ink on scrap pieces of Thick Whisper White cardstock.  I colored everything in using my Calypso Coral, Crumb Cake, Mint Macaron, Old Olive, Petal Pink, Pool Party, Purple Posy, Seaside Spray, Smoky Slate and Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I fussy cut all the pieces out using my Paper Snips.

I wrapped a piece of Flax Ribbon around the top portion of the card front and tied a knot.  I adhered all the Coral, Shells and Seahorse where I wanted them on the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, Glue Dots and Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut a 2″ square out or Petal Pink cardstock using the Layering Squares Dies.  Using the layered square just smaller than the 2″ I cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock out and stamped it with the sentiment from the Seaside Notions stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink.  I cut the scalloped square out using the Layering Squares Dies that is a hair larger that the Whisper White square out of Pear Pizzazz cardstock.  I adhered the Whisper White square to the Pear Pizzazz scalloped square using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and then adhered it to the Petal Pink square using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I lined up the cut out square with the card base area that was cut out and adhered the square to the inside section of the card base using Glue Dots.  I added a few Pearl Basic Jewels to the sentiment panel.

On the inside I stamped the sand and seahorse from the Seaside Notions stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink.  I stamped the sand along the bottom of the Whisper White panel stamping off once and the seahorse on the side of the panel.  I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up Itty Bitty Birthdays Cling Stamp Set in Pear Pizzazz Ink in the center of the Whisper White panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Pear Pizzazz card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the front of the envelope with the sand and seahorse from the Seaside Notions stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink.  I adhered a panel of the Subtle 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!!  Hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

Stampin’ Up Sailing Home High Tide

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  How has your week started off?  I can’t believe we are at the end of July already.  Before you know if August will be here and the summer will almost be over.  Summer is my favorite time of the year.  It’s light out until after 8pm and it gets light earlier in the morning.  I just love the hot summer days.

For today’s card I’ve done a lot of sponging and a bit of the masking technique for you.  I’ve combined the Stampin’ Up High Tide Photopolymer Stamp Set  with the Stampin’ Up Sailing Home Cling Stamp Set.  Here’s my card.

I’ve played along with a couple challenges with my card today.  First off is the As You See It Challenge #205.  Here is their challenge.

Next I played along with the Festive Friday Challenge #0039.  Here is their challenge.

I started by stamping the sand image from the High Tide stamp set in Crumb Cake and Petal Pink Inks on the bottom of a Whisper White panel.  I added the seagrass image from the High Tide stamp set on the beach I created.  Next I stamped the lighthouse image from the Sailing Home stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink on top of the sand.  I stamped the lighthouse again on a small panel of Whisper White cardstock in Sahara Sand Ink and cut it out using the Smooth Sailing Dies and set it aside.

I stamped the light beam image from the High Tide stamp set in So Saffron Ink coming out from the top of the lighthouse.  I masked the lighthouse and light beam stamped images using a Post-It note that I fussy cut the images from.  I added the water image from the High Tide stamp set using Balmy Blue, Blueberry Bushel and Seaside Spray Inks.  I then started my sponging.  I started from the water and worked my way up.  I started with Daffodil Delight. Mango Melody and Pumpkin Pie Inks.  I then continued moving up using Flirty Flamingo, Highland Heather Inks and ended with Night of Navy Ink.  After I was all finished sponging the background I removed the masked images and adhered the cut out lighthouse on top of the stamped lighthouse using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I stamped the seagull image from the High Tide stamp set in Basic Gray Ink.

On a small piece of Vellum cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the High Tide stamp set in Blueberry Bushel Ink.  I immediately sprinkled the vellum with Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I adhered the vellum sentiment using Glue Dots.  I adhered the artwork to a Blueberry Bushel card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the lighthouse image from the Sailing Home stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink, stamping off once, in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Well Said Cling Stamp Set in Blueberry Bushel Ink over the top of the lighthouse.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Blueberry Bushel card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the lighthouse image from the Sailing Home stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped the walking seagulls image from the High Tide stamp set in Basic Gray Ink on the envelope front and added a little of the sand image from the High Tide stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink below the seagulls.  I stamped the flying seagulls from the High Tide stamp set in Basic Gray Ink 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!!
