Stampin’ Up! Friends Are Like Seashells Shimmery Card

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. Happy Mother’s Day!!! I hope you all have a relaxing day and maybe get some ‘YOU’ time in with some stamping or whatever you enjoy doing. I’m hoping not to work and get some stamping time in.

Today’s card is another version of yesterday’s card. We made this card at my card class last week. I gave everyone the option of either using DSP or the embossing folder. Here’s the alternative card.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Friends Are Like Seashells Photopolymer Stamp Set for this card along with the Seashells 3D Embossing Folder.

I started by embossing a panel of the Shimmer White paper using the Seashells 3D Embossing Folder and adhering it to a Blushing Bride card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On a small panel of Sand & Sea DSP I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Friends Are Like Seashells Photopolymer Stamp Set in Sahara Sand Ink on the bottom of the panel. Using my Delightful Tag Topper Punch, I cut the top of the panel. I stamped the starfish image from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink on either side of the sentiment. On a small panel of Blushing Bride cardstock I stamped the starfish and seashell images from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Blushing Bride Ink. Using my Delightful Tag Topper Punch I cut the top of the Blushing Bride panel.

I threaded a length of Blushing Bride 3/8″ Metallic Ribbon through the 2 tags and tied a bow with a piece of Linen Thread around the ribbon. I adhered the tags to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a few Opal Rounds to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the sand image from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the shell images from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Blushing Bride Ink on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Sahara Sand mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Blushing Bride card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I stamped the sand image from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set along the bottom front of a Basic White Medium Envelope in Sahara Sand Ink. I stamped the seashell images on the envelope front in Blushing Bride Ink. I adhered a panel of the Sand & Sea 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! Painted Poppies CAS

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend. Today is the last day to get your hands on the retiring items. If there are things that you have been wanting, grab them while you still can. Then, tomorrow the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog goes LIVE YAY!!! I’ve got my list ready to go, how about you?

Today’s card is another one we will be making at my class tomorrow night. All the cards we will be making tomorrow are Mother’s Day/Female cards. This card is stepped up a little, but if they don’t want to add the extra they don’t have to, it looks just a pretty without. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Painted Poppies Cling Stamp Set for my card along with the Tasteful Textile 3d Embossing Folder.

I started by stamped the single poppy image from the Painted Poppies stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White card front. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Moments Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink next to the poppy image. I stamped the small splotch image from the Painted Poppies stamp set in Real Red Ink on the flower.

I embossed the card front using my Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to a Basic Black mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I wrapped a piece of Real Red 3/8″ Double-Stitched Satin Ribbon around the matted panel and tied a bow.

I adhered the card front to a Real Red card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Matte Black Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Peaceful Moments stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the single poppy image from the Painted Poppies stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the small splotch image from the Painted Poppies stamp set in Real Red Ink on the flower. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Basic Black mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Real Red card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the single poppy image from the Painted Poppies stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I stamped the small splotch image from the Painted Poppies stamp set in Real Red Ink on the flower. I adhered a panel of the Regals 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper (retiring today) 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!!

Today’s card is one that we are going to be making at my next card class. I have 2 brand new stampers coming, so I had to think simple. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Very Versailles Cling Stamp Set for my card. This one is just the basics, Stamp, Ink and Paper.

I started by stamping the script image from the Very Versailles stamp set in Petal Pink Ink on a Basic White card front.

I stamped the vine image from the Very Versailles stamp set in Just Jade Ink down the side of the Basic White panel.

I stamped the sentiment from the Very Versailles stamp set in Just Jade Ink on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Just Jade Mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to a Thick Basic White card base using Stampin’ Seal.

On the inside I stamped the script image from the Very Versailles stamp set in Petal Pink Ink, stamping off once, towards the top of a Basic White panel. I stamped the vine image from the Very Versailles stamp set in Just Jade Ink over the script image, stamping off twice. I stamped the sentiment from the Very Versailles stamp set in Just Jade Ink in the center of the panel over the script. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Just Jade mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Thick Basic White card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the vine image from the Very Versailles stamp set in Just Jade Ink on the front of the envelope. I adhered a panel of the Flowers For Every Season 6X6 Designer Series Paper (retiring May 3rd) 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! Tranquil Thoughts Mother’s Day

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone doing today? We’re halfway through the week and on our way to the weekend. Hope you are starting to make plans.

Today’s card is another we made at our class last Monday. This one was a little different. I didn’t show the ladies the card. I handed them an envelope with all the card pieces cut out and gave them 2 stamp sets to choose from to work with and told them to create. One of them had Poppy Parade cardstock and ink and the other had Melon Mambo cardstock and ink. I used Flirty Flamingo for mine. Everyone had the same pieces of True Love Designer Series Paper to use. Unfortunately I forgot to take pictures of the card designs they came up with. None were like mine. Here’s my card for today.

My card used the Stampin’ Up! Tranquil Thoughts Bundle. This bundle will be retiring soon, so if it’s one that you like now’s the time to grab it.

I started by embossing a Basic White card front using the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder. Everyone had the same embossed panel to start with. I adhered s strip of Flirty Flamingo cardstock to the back of the strip of True Love DSP using Stampin’ Seal and adhered it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the flower image from the Tranquil Thoughts stamp set in Flirty Flamingo Ink and cut it our using my Tranquil Dies.

I stamped the sentiment from the Tranquil Thoughts stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the Basic White panel and cut it out using the Layering Circle Dies. I cut a panel of Flirty Flamingo cardstock using the next size up Layering Circle Dies and adhered the sentiment to the mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the flowers to the side of the sentiment using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the card front to a Flirty Flamingo card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Strong & Beautiful Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the flower image from the Tranquil Thoughts stamp set in Flirty Flamingo Ink on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Flirty Flamingo mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Flirty Flamingo card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the flower image from the Tranquil Thoughts stamp set in Flirty Flamingo Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the True Love 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! Dragonfly Garden Wishes

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend? I hope you had enjoyable one and were able to find some time for yourself.

Today’s card is one that we’re making at my card class tonight. This is the 1st class in over a year that I’m having. I’m really hoping this will be the 1st of many monthly classes again. I used the Stampin’ Up! Dragonfly Garden Cling Stamp Set and the Stampin’ Up! Garden Wishes Cling Stamp Set for my card. My card is similar to one a did a while back, one of the ladies coming asked about making it. Here’s my card for today.

My colors are from CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge #414.

I started by adhering a Dandy Garden Designer Series Paper card front to a Bumblebee card base using Stampin’ Seal.

I embossed a panel of Mossy Meadow cardstock using the Dandelion 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the dragonfly image from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I stamped the wing fill image in Merry Merlot Ink and I punched the dragonfly out using the Dragonflies Punch. I stamped the sentiment from the Garden Wishes stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink on the same panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the small dragonfly image from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set in Bumblebee Ink over the sentiment and punched it out using the Double Oval Punch. I punched the scalloped oval from the panel of Basic White cardstock using the Double Oval Punch. I adhered the sentiment oval to the scalloped oval using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered a length of 1/4″ Bumblebee Ribbon to the card front adhering it with a small amount of Stampin’ Seal in a ‘Z’ form and adhered the sentiment over the top using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a Ladybug Trinket to the sentiment using a Glue Dot. I brushed the wings of the dragonfly with some Clear Wink of Stella and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Garden Wishes stamp set in the center of a Basic White panel using Mossy Meadow Ink. I stamped the dragonfly image from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set in Bumblebee Ink on the top and bottom corners of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Mossy Meadow mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Bumblebee card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the dragonfly from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set on the envelope front and adhered a panel of the Dandy Garden 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! Hydrangea Haven CAS

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone’s weekend going? Hope you are able to enjoy some nice weather where ever you are. We’re expecting thunderstorms here today. I just love a good thunderstorm, as long as I’m not driving in it.

I have a clean and simple card for you today focusing on some Designer Series Paper that will be retiring soon. I’m going to be starting my card classes again and I wanted to make something really easy since the ladies haven’t stamped in quite some time. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Hydrangea Haven Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Hydrangea Hill Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by adhering a panel of the Hydrangea Hill DSP to a Seaside Spray card base using Stampin’ Seal. Unfortunately when I made the card Seaside Spray was available. This card will look beautiful in Misty Moonlight too.

I stamped the sentiment from the Hydrangea Haven stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink on the top of the DSP panel.

I added a few Pearl Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Hydrangea Haven stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the small cluster of hydrangea flowers from the Hydrangea Haven stamp set on either side of the sentiment in Highland Heather and Rococo Rose Inks. I adhered a strip of the Hydrangea Hill DSP to the bottom of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Rococo Rose mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Seaside Spray card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the small hydrangea flower clusters from the Hydrangea Haven stamp set across the bottom or the envelope front in Rococo Rose, Misty Moonlight (stamped off twice) and Highland Heather Inks. I adhered a panel of Hydrangea Hill DSP 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! Timeless Tulips CAS Easter Card

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends. How has everyone’s week started off? I went from one job to the other yesterday. The dog bakery is a little short staffed and we’re running out of time to get all the Easter treats out. So I went in yesterday for a few hours and I told them I’d help out and come in today. I’m not sure about tomorrow yet.

For today I have a simple stamping card for you. This is a perfect card for a beginner stamper that doesn’t have a lot of product. I used a stamp set, some ink and paper. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips Photopolymer Stamp Set for my card. Nothing screams spring and Easter like some tulips.

I started by stamping the stems and leaves images from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Garden Green Ink on a panel of Fine Art Floral Designer Series Paper. I stamped the tulip images from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Poppy Parade Ink on the stems.

I adhered the card front to a Poppy Parade mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the matted panel to a Petal Pink card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Timeless Tulips stamp set and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Seal.

On the inside I stamped a single tulip in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the stems and leaves from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Garden Green Ink, stamping off once. I stamped the tulip image from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Poppy Parade Ink, stamping off once. I stamped the sentiment from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Garden Green Ink over the tulip stem. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Poppy Parade mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Petal Pink card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the tulip images from the Timeless Tulips stamp set on the envelope front the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of Fine Art Floral DSP 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!!
