Stampin’ Up! Season of Chic Thinking of You

Good Monday morning my stamping friends welcome to a new week. How was everyone’s weekend? It was a hot muggy one here in NJ. I was actually happy to be inside working.

Today’s card is a quick one that I think came out pretty nice. It’s a simple one and one that you can easily duplicate. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Season Of Chic 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Season of Chic Bundle for my card today.

Stampin' Up! Season Of Chic 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by stamping the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Season of Chic Photopolymer Stamp Set in Versamark Ink on the bottom of a Very Vanilla card front. I sprinkled it with my Gold Embossing Powder from the Metallic Embossing Powders and set it using my Heat Tool.

Stampin' Up! Season Of Chic 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

I embossed the card front using the Leaf Fall 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the card front to a Very Vanilla mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I wrapped a piece of the Gold & Very Vanilla 3/8″ Satin Edged Ribbon around the layered panel and tied a knot. I adhered the layered panel to a Very Vanilla Thick card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a Brushed Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dot by the sentiment.

On a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the detailed leaf image from the Season of Chic stamp set in Versamark Ink. I sprinkled it with my Gold Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I cut the image out using the Chic Dies. I cut 3 of the detailed leaf dies from the Chic Dies from a panel of Distressed Gold Specialty Paper. I adhered the embossed leaf and 2 of the die cut gold leaves to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment and detailed leaf image from the Season of Chic stamp set in Versamark Ink on a Very Vanilla panel. I sprinkled it with my Gold Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to the inside of the Very Vanilla Thick card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Very Vanilla Medium Envelope. I stamped the detailed leaf image from the Season of Chic stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the envelope front and 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! 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. I stamped the pine bough images from the Merriest Moments stamp set in Garden Green Ink first full strength, then again without reinking and the smaller image in Soft Sea Foam Ink. I adhered the Basic Whtie panel to a Garden Green mat and then to the inside of the Garden Green card base.

Stampin' Up! Merriest Moments Panel 6 creativestampiungdesigns.com

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the pine bough images from the Merriest Moments stamp set in Garden Green Ink on the envelope front first full strength, then again without reinking. I stamped the smaller pine bough image from the Merriest Moments stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink below the larger pine bough image. I adhered a panel of Painted Christmas DSP 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

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.

I stamped the sentiment from the Jingle Jingle Jingle on the bottom of the panel in Tuxedo Black Ink.

Stampin’ Up! Snow Crystal Fun Fold with Video Tutorial

Good Friday morning my stamping friends welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Has anyone made any plans for the weekend yet? I’m off tomorrow and Sunday is the last of the month, so I have to go into the office. The good thing about the last of the month being on a Sunday, I can go in whenever I want, get my work done and go home. Plus, since no one is usually in the office on the weekend, I get to put my own music on or watch my team members videos while I work.

Today’s card I made on my Facebook Live video on Wednesday. If you were able to join me or watched the replay, thank you. If you’d like to watch my video and stamp along, the measurements are below along with the links to my Facebook page and my YouTube channel. Here is my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Snow Crystal Fun Fold 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by folding my Basic White Thick card base at 4 1/4″ & 2 1/8″. I adhered the smaller panel of Silver & Gold DSP to a Pacific Point mat. I adhered the layered panel to the front of the Basic White Thick card base. On a panel of Vellum, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampiun’ Up! Joyful Flurry Cling Stamp Set in Pacific Point Ink and set it aside to dry.

Stampin' Up! Snow Crystal Fun Fold 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the large snowflake image from the Snow Crystal stamp set in Versamark Ink. I sprinkled it with my Silver Embossing Powder from the Metallic Embossing Powders and set it using my Heat Tool. I fussy cut the snowflake using my Paper Snips. I adhered the snowflake to the card front, using Stampin’ Dimensionals only on one half of the snowflake.

Stampin' Up! Snow Crystal Fun Fold 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

I cut the sentiment out using the larger die from the Frosted Flurry Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the snowflake using Glue Dots. I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

Stampin' Up! Snow Crystal Fun Fold 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside, I adhered the larger panel of Silver & Gold DSP to a Pacific Point mat. I adhered the layered panel to the inside of the Basic White Thick card base.

I adhered the Basic White panel to a Pacific Point mat and then to the inside of the Basic White Thick card base.

Stampin' Up! Snow Crystal Fun Fold 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the dotted image from the Joyful Flurry stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper, along the bottom front of the envelope. I stamped the small snowflake image from the Joyful Flurry stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink above the dots. I adhered a panel of Silver & Gold DSP to the envelope flap.

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.

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! Brightest Beauty CAS

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend. It’s HOT here. We’re supposed to be in the 100’s today. The ‘feel like’ temp for the past week has been over 100 every day. My son has been coming home from work exhausted. He’s a soccer coach and has been outside in the sun for the past week at camps. He brings gallons of water with him and picks up Gatorade or Powerade drinks too. The good thing about the heat we’re having, my tomatoes are ripening, I was able to have my 1st tomato sandwich of the season yesterday and it was delicious.

Today I have a really quick CAS card for you using a new set I just received from the July-December Mini Catalog. I looked over this set at first, but I have to admit, I LOVE it. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Brightest Beauty Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Stampin’ Up! Go To Greetings Cling Stamp Set for my card today.

My colors are from Color Throwdown Challenge #702.

I got my CAS design from Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #545.

Stampin' Up! Brightest Beauty CAS2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by stamping the leaf image from the Brightest Beauty stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the flower image from the Brightest Beauty stamp set in So Saffron Ink over the leaf image. I randomly stamped the geometric image from the Brightest Beauty stamp set in Pool Party Ink around the outside of the panel.

I cut the stamped panel into 1 1/2″ strips and adhered them to a Basic White Thick card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Brightest Beauty CAS4 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a strip of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Go To Greetings in Crumb Cake Ink. I fussy cut the sentiment using my Paper Snips. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered the Basic White panel to a Pool Party mat and then to the inside of the Basic White Thick card base.

Stampin’ Up! Kindest Gnomes Birthday

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends and welcome to the weekend. Does anyone have plans? I’ll be at work all day today, but it turns out I have off tomorrow. I’m sure I’ll be staying inside no matter what. We’re supposed to be in the 100’s Sunday. My tomato plants are thriving with this heat, and I’m only supposed to water on odd days. I am giving them just a little water on even days and really soaking them on the odd days. We’re in a bit of a drought here so the water company has asked for us to conserve water and only water on odd days. We haven’t had any rain here for almost a month now and with the heat everything is drying out, it actually looks like fall on some of my neighbors’ lawns. They are covered with leaves that have fallen from the trees because of lack of rain.

Today’s card is for my neighbor, co-worker and friend. I hired her at the hardware store over 20 years ago, then I just happen to buy the house next to where she was living 29 years ago. We’ve been through a lot together. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Kindest Gnomes Birthday 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Kindest Gnomes Bundle along with the Happy Forest Friends Designer Series Paper and the Stampin’ Up! Very Best Occasions Cling Stamp Set for my card today.

Stampin' Up! Kindest Gnomes Birthday 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by adhering a panel of Happy Forest Friends DSP to a Sahara Sand card base. I adhered another panel of Happy Forest Friends DSP to a Sahara Sand mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Kindest Gnomes Birthday 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the images from the Stampin’ Up! Kindest Gnomes Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the images using my Calypso Coral, Crumb Cake, Ivory, Night of Navy, Pale papaya, Petal Pink, Soft Suede, Sweet Sorbet and Tahitian Tide Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image out using the Gnome Dies. I adhered the die cut images to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Kindest Gnomes Birthday 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Calypso Coral cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Kindest Gnomes stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I cut the sentiment out using the smallest die from the Tailored Made Tags Dies. I threaded a piece of White Baker’s Twine from the Baker’s Twine Essential Pack, through the tag and tied a bow. I adhered the tag to the card front in the gnome’s hand using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Fine Sparkle Adhesive-Backed Gems and Brushed Brass Butterflies to the card front.

Stampin' Up! Kindest Gnomes Birthday 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Very Best Occasions stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the gnome image from the Kindest Gnomes stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom of the panel. I colored the image using my Crumb Cake, Ivory, Petal Pink, Soft Suede, Sweet Sorbet and Tahitian Tide Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Sweet Sorbet mat and the to the inside of the Sahara Sand card base.

Stampin' Up! Kindest Gnomes Birthday 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the images from the Kindest Gnomes stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and colored them the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of Happy Forest Friends DSP to the envelope flap.
