Stampin’ Up! Leaves of Holly Slimline

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends. I hope your week has started well. I’ve got a busy one ahead of me. Today is my only day off and I’ll be working the next 6 days straight. Maybe I’ll be surprised, and they won’t schedule me for Sunday.

Today’s card is another one that we made at our quarterly team meeting a couple weeks ago. This one was designed by another one of our team members Darryl Robbins. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Leaves of Holly Slimline 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Leaves of Holly Bundle along with the Boughs of Holly Designer Series Paper for my card today. This was the first time I’ve made a Slimline card and I think it came out pretty good since I didn’t know what I was doing.

Stampin' Up! Leaves of Holly Slimline 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by adhering a panel of Boughs of Holly DSP to a Cherry Cobbler mat. I adhered the layered panel to the panel of Mossy Meadow cardstock using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the layered panels to the 1 7/8″ section of the Mossy Meadow card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Using the Holly Berry Dies, I cut the holly frame die from a panel of Cherry Cobbler cardstock. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Leaves of Holly Photopolymer Stamp Set in Cherry Cobbler Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I cut the sentiment out using the Holly Berry Dies. I adhered the holly frame to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the sentiment inside the frame using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the panel of Mossy Meadow cardstock, I stamped the smaller holly leaf image from the Leaves of Holly stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink. I cut the leaves out using the Holly Berry Dies. On the panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the berry image from the Leaves of Holly stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink and cut them out with the Holly Berry Dies. I adhered the leaves to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the berries over the leaves using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

For the inside. I stamped the holly leaf images from the Leaves of Holly stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink on the top of a Basic White panel. I stamped the berry image by the holly leaves in Cherry Cobbler Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat and then to the inside of the Mossy Meadow card base. I stamped the sentiment from the Leaves of Holly stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I cut the 2 ends on an angle using my Paper Snips. I adhered a piece of the Natural 1/2″ Woven Ribbon on the bottom of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the sentiment over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I colored 2 of the Textural Elements using the Cherry Cobbler and Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Textural Elements on either side of the panel where I wanted the easel to stand using Glue Dots on the berry parts.

To finish my card, I decorated a Slimline Envelope. I stamped the holly leaf images from the Leaves of Holly stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink and the berry image in Cherry Cobbler Ink on the envelope front.

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

Stampin’ Up! Apple Harvest Friendship

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends, welcome to the weekend. I hope you have something fun planned. I’ll be working all day today.

This past Tuesday was our team meeting. After we finish with the business part of the meeting, we do some mystery stamping. Our upline Jaimie gives us measurements of cardstock and DSP and lets us know what other products we may need. The rest is up to us. She talks up through what to do and at the end our cards are all similar, but also very different. Here’s what I came up with.

Stampin' Up! Apple Harvest Friendship 1 creativestanpingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Apple Harvest Bundle along with the Gingham Cottage Designer Series Paper for my card today. This bundle is only available until September 30, 2022. The stamp set is in the July-December 2022 Mini Catalog.

Stampin' Up! Apple Harvest Friendship 2 creativestanpingdesigns.com

I started by making a small mark about 1 3/4″ up from the bottom left front of a So Saffron card base. I cut from that mark to the bottom right corner using my Paper Trimmer.

Stampin' Up! Apple Harvest Friendship 3 creativestanpingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the apple image from the Stampin’ Up! Apple Harvest Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image using my Flirty Flamingo, Granny Apple Green, Poppy Parade, Soft Suede and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image out using my Apple Blossoms Dies. I cut a panel of Granny Apple Green cardstock using the Stylish Shapes Dies. I embossed the die cut panel using the Stitched Greenery Die.

Stampin' Up! Apple Harvest Friendship 4 creativestanpingdesigns.com

I adhered the die cut apple image to the Granny Apple Green panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I tied a small bow with Linen Thread and adhered it to the apple stem using a Glue Dot. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment from the Apple Harvest stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the Basic White panel. I cut the sentiment out using the Harvest Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the card base along the bottom angled edge using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I colored a few of the Pearl Basic Jewels using my Dark Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends Marker. I adhered the pearls to the card front.

Stampin' Up! Apple Harvest Friendship 5 creativestanpingdesigns.com

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Apple Harvest stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Granny Apple Green mat then to the inside top of the So Saffron card base. I adhered a panel of Gingham Cottage DSP to the inside bottom of the So Saffron card base.

Stampin' Up! Apple Harvest Friendship 6 creativestanpingdesigns.com

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the apple image from the Apple Harvest stamp set on the envelope front and colored it the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of the Gingham Cottage DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Soft Seedlings Josephs Coat

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. I hope everyone’s weekend is going well. I hope you will all take a moment of silence today for all the lives that were lost over 20 years ago. I remember the day like it was yesterday with all our phone going dead and just glued to the tv watching. My children were both in school in lock down until school was over and I could pick them up. I was so scared of what was happening and what could happen. It was a very sad and scary time.

Today’s card is one that we made at our Stamp Camp Class this past Tuesday night. I thought I’d have fun with a couple techniques with the ladies. This one I saw one of my team members make, Mary Deatherage, and I thought it would be perfect with our fall theme. It’s called the Josephs Coat Technique. You can see Mary’s video making this card Here. Here is my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Soft Seedlings Josephs Coat 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

Today’s card once again uses the Stampin’ Up! Soft Seedlings Cling Stamp Set. This is such a perfect set for fall cards and all kinds of techniques.

Stampin' Up! Soft Seedlings Josephs Coat 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started with a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock and using my Blending Brushes I added Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry and Pumpkin Pie Inks completely covering the panel. I set the panel to the side to dry completely. You can also use your Heat Tool on the #1 setting to dry the panel. You want to make sure the ink is completely dry before stamping or the embossing powder will stick to the ink and this technique will not work.

Stampin' Up! Soft Seedlings Josephs Coat 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

Once the panel was completely dry, I stamped the large leaf image from the Soft Seedlings stamp set in Versamark Ink randomly around the panel. I sprinkled it with my Clear Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. Once the panel cooled, I used my Blending Brush again and brushed Early Espresso Ink all over the panel completely covering it again. Once I had the amount of ink I wanted, I took a paper towel and gently rubbed all over the panel wiping the ink off the embossed areas and letting the colors shine through. I adhered the panel to an Early Espresso mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to a Very Vanilla Thick card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Soft Seedlings Josephs Coat 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a small panel of Very Vanilla cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Soft Seedlings stamp set in Cajun Craze Ink. I cut the sentiment out using my Stylish Shapes Dies. I adhered a piece of Old Olive ribbon from the Old Olive & Sahara Sand Twill Ribbon Combo Pack to the card front. I adhered the sentiment over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a Textural Element to the card front just under the sentiment using a Glue Dot. I added a few Brushed Metallic Adhesive Backed Dots to the card front.

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Soft Seedlings stamp set in Cajun Craze Ink on a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock. I used my Blending Brushes and added color to the large leaf image from the Soft Seedlings stamp set and stamped the leaves on the panel. I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to an Early Espresso mat and then to the inside of the Very Vanilla Thick card base

To finish my card, I decorated a Very Vanilla Medium Envelope. I stamped the large leaf image from the Soft Seedlings stamp set on the envelope front and flap in Cajun Craze and Pumpkin Pie Inks.

Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Prints Paneled Card

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend? Did anyone do anything fun? Our Sunday started out to be fun, going to watch my husband drive the racecar. It didn’t end up as much fun though. It started raining then pouring on our way there. There were bad thunderstorms, and everything got delayed for hours. They told us that there were 570 lightening strikes so we had to stay inside a garage for a bit. Even when we got the ok to go out, it was still raining. He had to reschedule, so now we’ll be going again May 14, 2023 (Mother’s Day). This was the last weekend they were going to be in NJ. With all the rain and thunderstorms there, it was dry as a bone at my house.

Today’s card is similar to yesterday’s but switched around a little. A change of direction, stamp set and one color. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Nature's Prints Paneled 1  creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Sun Prints Suite for my card today.

Stampin' Up! Nature's Prints Paneled 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by stamping the fern image from the Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Prints Cling Stamp Set in Blushing Bride Ink randomly on the Blushing Bride card base. I adhered a panel of Sun Prints Designer Series Paper to a Basic White mat and then to the Blushing Bride card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Nature's Prints Paneled 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the 3″ X 4″ panel of Basic White cardstock I randomly stamped the images from the Nature’s Prints stamp set in Blushing Bride, Gray Granite, Merry Merlot and Night of Navy Inks. I embossed the panel using the Fern 3D Embossing Folder. I cut the panel into 3 – 1″ strips using my Paper Trimmer. I adhered the strips to the 3 1/4″ X 4 1/8″ panel of Basic White cardstock. I adhered the layered panel to a Night of Navy mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Nature's Prints Paneled 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Gray Granite cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Nature’s Prints stamp set in Night of Navy Ink. I cut the sentiment out using the Natural Prints Dies. I cut 2 of the sprigs from the panel of Gray Granite cardstock. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the sprigs behind the artwork using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I added a few Elegant Faceted Gems to the card front.

Stampin' Up! Nature's Prints Paneled 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

I stamped the sentiment from the Nature’s Prints stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the images from the Nature’s Prints stamp set in Blushing Bride, Gray Granite, Merry Merlot and Night of Navy Inks on the side of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Night of Navy mat and then to the inside of the Blushing Bride card base.

Stampin' Up! Nature's Prints Paneled 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the images from the Nature’s Prints stamp set on the envelope front in Blushing Bride, Gray Granite, Merry Merlot and Night of Navy Inks. I adhered a panel of Sun Prints DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Botanical Layers Paneled Card

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. I hope you are all doing well this weekend and doing something fun. I’m off to the races to watch my husband drive. I’m sure it’s going to be a blast.

Today and tomorrow’s cards are similar with a twist. I just love this design. My upline Jaimie had us make this a year ago at a mystery stamping. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Botanical Layers Paneled 1 creativestampingdesign.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Botanical Layers Cling Stamp Set along with the Sun Prints Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I sprinkled it with my White Embossing Powder from the Basic Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I cut the sentiment out using my Natural Prints Dies. I adhered the sentiment over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Heart Pearls to the card front.

Stampin’ Up! Merriest Moments Paneled Christmas

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends. I hope everyone’s week has started out good. Stampin’ Up! has added some additional items that you can earn for FREE with orders beginning at $50 during Sale-a-bration!  You can see the new items Here.

Today’s card is similar to one I did a while back at our monthly mystery stamping. One of the ladies that comes to my Stamp Camp Card Class asked if we could make that card, but since I’m doing a Christmas in July theme, I adjusted it to that. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Merriest Moments Panel 1 creativestampiungdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Merriest Moments Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Painted Christmas Designer Series Paper for my card today.

Stampin' Up! Merriest Moments Panel 2 creativestampiungdesigns.com

I started by adhering a panel of Painted Christmas DSP to a Garden Green card base. I stamped the pine boughs images from the Merriest Moments stamp set in Garden Green and Soft Sea Foam on 3 panels of Basic White cardstock.

Stampin' Up! Merriest Moments Panel 3 creativestampiungdesigns.com

I embossed the 3 panels using my Wintry 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the embossed panels to Garden Green mats using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the 3 layered panels to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Merriest Moments Panel 4 creativestampiungdesigns.com

I stamped the sentiment from the Merriest Moments stamp set on a panel of Basic White cardstock in Garden Green Ink. I cut the sentiment out using my Seasonal Labels Dies. I threaded a piece of Garden Green ribbon from the Real Red and Garden Green 3/8″ Ribbon Combo Pack through the ends of the die cut sentiment. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Iridescent Rhinestones Basic Jewels to the card front.

Stampin' Up! Merriest Moments Panel 5 creativestampiungdesigns.com

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Merriest Moments stamp set in Garden Green Ink on a Basic White panel.

Stampin’ Up! Jingle Jingle Jingle

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends and welcome to the weekend. I hope you made some fun plans. I’m not sure what I will be doing today yet, we’ll see what the weather brings.

Today’s card is one that we will be making at our Stamp Camp Card Class on Tuesday. I mentioned that we will be doing Christmas in July even though it’ll be August. I thought this would be a fun one to make. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Jingle Jingle Jingle 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the fun Stampin’ Up! Jingle Jingle Jingle Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Stampin’ Up! Christmas to Remember Cling Stamp Set and the Celebrate Everything Host Designer Series Paper for my card today.

Stampin' Up! Jingle Jingle Jingle 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by adhering a panel of Celebrate Everything DSP to a Pool Party card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Jingle Jingle Jingle 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

I stamped the jingle sentiment from the Jingle Jingle Jingle stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock using my Stamparatus, moving the plate down using the hinges. I stamped the jingle fill image from the Jingle Jingle Jingle stamp set in Pool Party Ink inside the outline image using my Stamparatus the same way. I stamped the sentiment from the Jingle Jingle Jingle on the bottom of the panel in Tuxedo Black Ink.

I stamped the hat fill image from the Jingle Jingle Jingle stamp set in Poppy Parade Ink over the outline image. I adhered a strip of Celebrate Everything 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 Pool Party card base.

Stampin’ Up! Sweet Candy Cane Christmas

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. Well, here we are halfway through another week. I can’t believe the end of July is this weekend. I feel like July just started.

I made my 1st Christmas card for today. It cooled off a bit here, so I decided that I would make one. I have to get started some time, right? Also, we have out Stamp Camp Card Class next week and since everyone couldn’t be here last month for Christmas in July, we’re doing Christmas in August theme. The ladies will be making a version of this card next week. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Sweetest Candy Canes Christmas 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Sweet Candy Canes Bundle along with the Stampin’ Up! Christmas Banners Bundle for my card today.

Stampin' Up! Sweetest Candy Canes Christmas 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by cutting panels of Basic White and Real Red cardstock using the striped die from the Candy Canes Dies. I adhered the 2 panels together using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the layered panel to a Real Red card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Sweetest Candy Canes Christmas 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the 2 candy cane images from the Stampin’ Up! Sweet Candy Cane Cling Stamp Set in Real Red Ink. I cut the candy canes out using my Candy Cane Dies. I adhered the candy canes together using a Glue Dot and adhered them to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. From a panel of Garden Green cardstock, I cut 5 of the pine boughs die from the Christmas Banners Dies. I adhered the pine boughs around the candy canes using Glue Dots. I tied a small bow using the Garden Green ribbon from the Real Red & Garden Green 3/8″ Ribbon Combo Pack. I adhered the bow to the candy canes using a Glue Dot.
