Stampin’ Up! Gather Together Thank You Card

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Did anyone get to go apple picking or pumpkin picking?  The extent of my apple picking was going to Costco.  It’s not looking too promising for me going this year.

For today, I made another thank you card.  I need to send quite a few out in the next week or so, so I figured I’d better get busy making extra.  My card design and colors were a challenge given to us by my upline.  She’s doing a weekly challenge for our group.  Here’s my card.

Here are the sketch and colors for our challenge.

I started by embossing a panel of Crumb Cake cardstock using the Layered Leaves 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the embossed panel to a Crumb Cake card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Shaded Spruce cardstock I stamped the large leaf image from the Stampin’ Up! Gather Together Photopolymer Stamp Set in Versamark Ink.  I immediately sprinkled it with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I cut the image out using the Gathered Leaves Dies and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the larger pumpkin image from the Gather Together stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink.  I colored the pumpkin in using my Crumb Cake and Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blends Markers and cut it out using my Gathered Leaves Dies.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! New Wonders Cling Stamp Set in Shaded Spruce inside the pumpkin.  I adhered the pumpkin to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added 2 large and 2 small Pearl Basic Jewels that I had colored using my Dark Shaded Spruce and Dark Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blends Markers.

On the inside I stamped the smaller pumpkin image from the Gather Together stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink on the bottom of a Whisper White panel.  I masked the smaller pumpkins and stamped the larger pumpkin image from the Gather Together stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink next to them.  I colored all the pumpkins in using my Crumb Cake and Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! A Big Thank You Photopolymer Stamp Set in Shaded Spruce Ink in the center of the Whisper White panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Shaded Spruce mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Crumb Cake card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped and colored the pumpkin images from the Gather Together stamp set on the envelope front the same as I did for the inside of the card.  I stamped the large leaf image from the Gather Together stamp set in Shaded Spruce 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!!

Stampin’ Up! Path of Petals for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to Fun Fold Friday.  How was everyone’s week?  Hope it was a productive one.  I had off yesterday and I went non stop from early morning till late at night getting things done.  I did some of my fall cleaning and decorating, washed windows and changed curtains.  I even had some time to make a card for today.

I have a really quick and easy fun fold card for you today.  I’m not quite sure what the name of today’s fun fold card is.  I want to call it a corner fold card.  Take a look.

I started with a Rococo Rose card base which is 4 1/4″ X 11″.  I scored at the 5 1/2″ and then made a little mark 1 1/4″ from the score line on the front of the card.  I scored from that mark to the bottom right corner and folded the corner to the front.  To give it a little texture, I embossed the card front using my Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder.

Using the largest scallop square from my Layering Squares Dies, I cut the Pear Pizzazz panel.  I took the 2nd largest square from the Layering Squares Dies and cut my Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper out.  Using my Stampin’ Sponge, I sponged the edges of the Pear Pizzazz scallop square with Pear Pizzazz Ink.  I adhered the Pressed Petals Specialty DSP panel to the scallop square using Snail.  Using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, I adhered the Mossy Meadow panel to the card base lining up the corners of the square with the fold line.  I adhered the matted DSP to the Mossy Meadow panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Path of Petals Photopolymer Stamp Set in Mossy Meadow Ink.  I made the strip into a banner and sponged the edges with Pear Pizzazz Ink.  I adhered the banner under the scallop square using Glue Dots.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Path of Petals stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink in the center of a Very Vanilla panel.  I stamped the leaf image from the Path of Petals stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on the side of the panel.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to the inside of the Rococo Rose card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I stamped the leaf image from the Path of Petals stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink.  I stamped the flower image from the Path of Petals stamp set in Rococo Rose Ink on the leaf image.  I adhered a panel of Pressed Petals Specialty 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 Harvest Thank You

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers.  We’re on the down slide to the weekend, has anyone made any plans?  I’m hoping one weekend soon I can go apple picking.  Fall seems to be in full swing here and with fall comes apple picking for me.

For today I have, what I believe to be, a real country looking thank you card.  Here’s my card.

My colors were inspired by Color Throwdown Challenge #564.  Here are their colors.

My design is from Mojo Monday Sketch #524.  Here is their sketch.

I started by stamping the 1st part of the sunflower image from the Stampin’ Up! Painted Harvest Photopolymer Stamp Set in Crushed Curry Ink.  I stamped the 2nd part of the sunflower image from the Painted Harvest stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink.  I stamped the inside of the sunflower in Crumb Cake Ink.  I then fussy cut the sunflower using my Paper Snips.  Using my Layering Circles Dies, I cut out the scalloped circle that fit best around my sunflower in Soft Suede cardstock.  I adhered the sunflower to the scalloped circle using Glue Dots.

I adhered 2 pieces of the gingham Regals 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper, one in Cherry Cobbler and one in Crushed Curry,  to Soft Suede mats using Snail.  I adhered the Cherry Cobbler matted DSP to a Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the top of the Crushed Curry DSP I stamped the sentiment from the Painted Harvest stamp set in Versamark Ink on an angle.  I immediately sprinkled it with my Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I adhered the matted DSP to the Pressed Petals Specialty DSP card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I wrapped 2 pieces of the 1/4″ Copper Trim Ribbon around the card front and adhered it using a small amount of Snail on the back.  I adhered the card front to a Soft Suede card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the matted sunflower to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Painted Harvest stamp set in Soft Suede Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I adhered a strip of the Pressed Petals Specialty DSP to the left side of the panel using Snail.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Soft Suede card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the sunflower image from the Painted Harvest stamp set on the envelope front the same as I did for the card.  I adhered a panel of the Crushed Curry Gingham Regals 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. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Beauty and Joy For Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

 

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop. It’s the 2nd Tuesday of the month and you know what that means, Blog Hop Day!!  If you are starting with me, be sure to hop around to see everyone’s awesome projects. If you’ve hopped over from Amy Koenders blog, welcome to my blog and thank you for stopping by.  The theme this month is “Giving Thanks”. We can interpret this any way that we’d like.

For today’s card I used the Stampin’ Up! Beauty & Joy Photopolymer Stamp Set to create a Thanksgiving card.  Here’s my card.

I joined in with the Inspire. Create Challenge #053.  Here is their sketch.

I also played along with Just Us Girls Word Week #508.  Here is their theme.

I started by adhering a panel of Come To Gather Designer Series Paper to a Cajun Craze card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the flowerpot image from the Beauty & Joy stamp set in Cajun Craze Ink.  I stamped the tree trunk image from the Beauty & Joy stamp set in Early Espresso Ink above the flowerpot stamping off once.  I stamped the leaves image from the Beauty & Joy stamp set in Merry Merlot Ink on the tree trunk.  I cut the image out using the Stitched Nested Labels Dies.

I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  For the banner I had to get a little creative.  I stamped the banner from the Stampin’ Up! Toile Christmas Cling Stamp Set on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I used my Merry Merlot Stampin’ Write Marker to color just the banner part of the stamp in.  I then stamped the sentiment from the Beauty & Joy stamp set in Cajun Craze Ink inside the banner.  I cut the banner out using the Christmas Cardinal Dies.  I adhered the banner to the top of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut out some leaves using the Nature’s Roots Dies in Merry Merlot cardstock.  I adhered 3 of the leaves under the artwork using Glue Dots.  I adhered the cluster of leaves under the sentiment using Glue Dots.  I tied a small bow using the Mossy Meadow Linen Thread that comes in the Magnolia Lane Ribbon Combo Pack, and adhered it to the cluster of leaves using a Glue Dot.  I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the artwork.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampn’ Up! A wish for Everything Cling Stamp Set in Cajun Craze Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the leaves from the Stampin’ Up! Rooted In Nature Cling Stamp Set in Merry Merlot Ink, stamping off once, around the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Cajun Craze card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered another one of the die cut leaves by the sentiment using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the tree image from the Beauty & Joy stamp set on the envelope front the same as I did for the card front.  I adhered a panel of Come To Gather DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Cup of Christmas Cards

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Were you able to join us for our Facebook live videos?  We all had a lot of fun making them.  I did my first ever video and I have to admit, I had fun with it.  If you were able to watch, thank you very much.

For today I have the 2 cards from the video for you.  Both cards are the same style just different color bases and Designer Series Paper.  My directions are the same for both cards just the different colors.  Here are my cards.

My card played along with the Just Add Ink Challenge #477.  Here is their sketch.

I started by embossing the Cherry Cobbler and Shaded Spruce card fronts using the Winter Knit 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the Let It Snow Specialty Designer Series Paper on the Coastal Cabana mat and the Wrapped In Plaid Designer Series Paper on the Gold Foil Sheet using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the matted DSP to each of the card fronts using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I cut out Flirty Flamingo, Night of Navy, Real Red and Shaded Spruce cups using the Cup of Cheer Dies.  On the Night of Navy mug I cut out the stripes from the Cup of Cheer Dies in Shaded Spruce cardstock and adhered them to the cup using Fine Tip Glue Pen.  For the Flirty Flamingo cup I cut out a snowflake from the Seasonal Layers Dies in Sparkle Glimmer Paper and adhered it to the cup using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

For the Real Red and Shaded Spruce cups I stamped them both using sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Cup of Christmas Photopolymer Stamp Set with Versamark Ink.  I sprinkled the Real Red one with Shimmer White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and the Shaded Spruce one with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  I immediately used my Heat Tool to set them.  I adhered the cups to the card fronts using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I cut out the steam with a scroll die from the Christmas Cardinal Dies in Smoky Slate cardstock.  I adhered them to the cups using my Fine Tip Glue Pen.  I adhered the Cherry Cobbler card front to the Cherry Cobbler card base and the Shaded Spruce card front to the Shaded Spruce card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the insides I stamped one of the Whisper White panels in the center with the sentiment from the Cup of Christmas stamp set in Night of Navy Ink.  I stamped the holly image from the Cup of Christmas stamp set on either side of the sentiment in Shaded Spruce Ink.  On the other Whisper White panel in the center I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Frosted Foliage Cling Stamp Set in Shaded Spruce Ink.  I stamped the snowflake image from the Frosted Foliage stamp set in Coastal Cabana Ink, stamping off once, on either side of the sentiment.  I adhered the one stamped with the Night of Navy sentiment to the Shaded Spruce mat and the one stamped with the Shaded Spruce sentiment to the Coastal Cabana mat using Snail.  I adhered the Shaded Spruce matted sentiment to the inside of the Cherry Cobbler card base and the Coastal Cabana matted sentiment to the inside of the Shaded Spruce card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my cards I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the polka dot cup image from the Cup of Christmas stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink on the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of the Wrapped in Plaid DSP to the envelope flap.

For the other Medium Whisper White Envelope I stamped the snowflake image from the Frosted Foliage stamp set in Coastal Cabana Ink on the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of Let it Snow Specialty DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my cards and will give them a try.  Let me know which one you like better.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Everything Amazing for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to Fun Fold Friday.  How was everyone’s week?  Are you ready for the weekend?  It’s here ready or not.  Is anyone making any plans?  Tomorrow is World Card Making Day, I hope you will be able to join my team in watching our Facebook Live videos.  They will be starting at 9am and continue until 9pm.  The link is below how to join or find us.

For today’s card I have a gate fold that I turned.  Here’s my card.

My colors were inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge #324.  Here are their colors.

I started by adhering 2 panels of Come To Gather Designer Series Paper to Pretty Peacock mats using Snail.  I adhered both panels to the Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the large image from the Stampin’ Up! Everything Amazing Photopolymer Stamp Set in Terracotta Tile Ink.  I stamped the 2 smaller sentiment from the Everything Amazing stamp set in Grapefruit Grove Ink on the larger image.  I adhered the artwork panel to a Pretty Peacock mat using Snail.  I cut leaves out using the Seasonal Layers Dies in Grapefruit Grove, Mint Macaron, Pretty Peacock and Terracotta Tile cardstocks.  I adhered the leaves to the artwork back and front using Glue Dots.  I added a couple 2019-2021 In-Color Faceted Dots to the artwork.

I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals only to the left half of the panel.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Colorful Seasons Photopolymer Stamp Set in Terracotta Tile Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the leaf image from the Colorful Seasons stamp set in Grapefruit Grove Ink, stamping off once, on either side of the sentient and over the sentiment.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pretty Peacock mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I finished my card by decorating a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the leaf image from the Colorful Seasons stamp set in Grapefruit Grove and Terracotta Tile Ink across the bottom of the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of 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.  Please don’t forget to hop on and watch us on our Facebook Lives videos tomorrow.  I will be going live at 4pm.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Well Written Wedding Card

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers.  How has everyone’s week been going?  The weekend is right around the corner again and that means only 2 day’s till World Card Making Day.  Our team will be doing Facebook Live videos all day on Saturday starting at 9am and going until 9pm.  I hope you can join us, the link is listed below.  I will be doing my live video at 4pm, this will be my 1st Facebook Live.

For today’s card a friend asked me to make her a wedding card for this weekend.  I’ve seen cards made with the Puzzle Pieces Dies and I thought I’d put my own spin on it.  Here’s my card.

I played along with the Fab Friday Sketch Challenge #173.  Here is their sketch.

I started by embossing a Whisper White panel using the Scripty 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to a Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I cut out 2 of the puzzle pieces using the Puzzle Pieces Die from a scrap of Thick Whisper White cardstock.  I wanted to make sure the puzzle pieces were a little sturdier, that’s why I used the thick cardstock.  I colored one of the pieces in using my Dark Basic Black Stampin’ Blends Marker.  I colored 3 Rhinestone Basic Jewels using my Dark Basic Black Stampin’ Blends Marker and added them to the puzzle piece, so it looked like buttons.  The other puzzle piece I left white and added Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the top to look like a necklace.

I cut the heart out of Sparkle Glimmer Paper using the Stitched Be Mine Dies.  I cut the ‘bride and groom’ sentiments out of Silver Foil Sheets using the Well Written Dies.  I adhered the puzzle pieces to the center of the heart using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the bride on the top of the heart and groom on the bottom of the heart using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered a piece of Silver 3/8″ Metallic-Edge Ribbon to the back of the heart using a Glue Dot.  I adhered the heart to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Dandelion Wishes Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the heart image from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Lovely Photopolymer Stamp Set in Petal Pink Ink on either side of the sentiment.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Basic Black mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the heart image from the Forever Lovely stamp set on the envelope front and envelope flap in Petal Pink Ink.

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