Stampin’ Up! Merry and Bright CAS

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  How has everyone’s week started off?

I have another CAS card for you today.  I’m slowly learning when it comes to holiday cards that’s the way to go.  I do make some extravagant ones.  Those go to special people that I know don’t toss them to the side right away and take a moment to look at the card.  Here’s my card for today.

I played along with Always Fun Challenge #182.  Their Theme is “Die Cutting”.

I started by adhering a Heartwarming Hugs Designer Series Paper card front to a Whisper White mat using Stampin’ Seal.

I wrapped a piece of the Real Red 3 16″ Braided Linen Trim around the card front and tied  a bow.  I adhered the card front to a Real Red card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Using my Joy Dies, I cut the 3 layers of the sentiment. The largest, background, in Real Red, the middle outline in Whisper White and the word in Mossy Meadow.  I adhered the 3 layers together using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a thin strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the ‘MERRY, AND’  sentiments from the Stampin’ UP! Peace & Joy Photopolymer Stamp Set in Mossy Meadow Ink.  I cut the words out using my Paper Snips and adhered them above the sentiment using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Wonderful Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Wishes & Wonder Cling Stamp Set in Mossy Meadow Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the pine boughs image from the Peace & Joy stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink, 1 full strength and 1 stamped off.  I adhered a thin strip of Heartwarming Hugs DSP to the bottom of the panel using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Mossy Meadow 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 Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the pine bough image from the Peace & Joy stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of Heartwarming Hugs 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! Wrapped In Christmas

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Are you all ready to tackle another week?  I’ve got a busy one ahead with the end of the month and the 1st of the month.  I’ll also be working at the dog bakery this week, so not much free time for me.

For today’s card I used some of the beautiful Holiday Designer Series Paper that will be on sale starting October 1st for 15% off.  Here’s my card for today.

I started by adhering a panel of Toile Tidings Designer Series Paper to a Thick Very Vanilla card base using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered a thin strip of Garden Green cardstock on the edge of the DSP using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Wrapped In Christmas Cling Stamp Set in Garden Green Ink.  I didn’t have a rectangle the size I needed, so I made one to fit.  I cut the sentiment out part way using my Stitched Rectangle Dies and cut partway through.  I moved the die to the size I wanted, matching up the stitches, turned the panel around and cut partway through again.  I adhered the sentiment, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, to a frame which I had cut using the Beautiful Boughs Dies from a panel of Brushed Metallic cardstock.  I adhered the framed sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut 2 of the small boughs from a panel of Garden Green cardstock using the Beautiful Boughs Dies and adhered them to the sentiment using Glue Dots.  From scraps of Crumb Cake and Soft Suede cardstock, I cut the pinecone from the Beautiful Boughs Dies and adhered it to the card front using Glue Dots.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Wrapped In Christmas stamp set in Garden Green Ink in the center of a Very Vanilla panel.  I adhered 2 strips of the Toile Tidings DSP on either side of the panel using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Garden Green mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Thick Very Vanilla card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I adhered a strip of Toil Tidings DSP to the envelope front and a panel 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! Sweetest Poinsettia Petals CAS

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends.  How is everyone’s weekend going?  I have to work today and I have a busy work week ahead of me.  I was able to get my house all decorated for fall yesterday.

I have another Clean & Simple card for you today that is also Quick & Easy.  Here’s my card for today.

My design is from CAS(E) This Sketch Challenge #391.  Here is their sketch.

My colors are from Just Add Ink Challenge #524.  Here are their colors.

I started by stamping the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals Photopolymer Stamp Set in Versamark Ink on a Merry Merlot card front.  I immediately sprinkled it with my White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.

I adhered 2 panels of Wonder of the Season Specialty Designer Series Paper to the Merry Merlot card front, above the sentiment, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the card front to a Rococo Rose card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I cut 2 holly leaves out of a panel of Mint Macaron cardstock using the Sweetest Borders Dies.  I stamped the berry image from the Stampin’ Up! Sweetest Time Photopolymer Stamp Set in Merry Merlot Ink on a scrap of Rococo Rose and cut them out using the Sweetest Borders Dies.  I adhered the holly leaves to the side of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and the berries on top of the leaves using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Merry Merlot Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the holly leaf image from the Sweetest Time stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink on either side of the sentiment.  I stamped the berries from the Sweetest Time stamp set in Merry Merlot Ink on the holly leaves.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Merry Merlot mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Rococo Rose card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the holly leaves and berries from the Sweetest Time stamp set on the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of Wonder of the Season 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! Beautiful Autumn Leaves CAS

Good Saturday morning my fellow stampers.  How has everyone’s weekend started off?  Does anyone have any plans?  I have off today, but I’m not sure yet what I will be doing.

I have a Clean & Simple, Quick & Easy fall card for you today.  Here’s my card.

My colors were inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge #348.  Here are their colors.

My design is from Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #454.  Here is their sketch.

I started by cutting a panel of Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper using the 2nd largest rectangle from my Stitched Rectangle Dies.  I adhered it to a Crumb Cake card base using Stampin’ Seal.

On a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Autumn Photopolymer Stamp Set in Crumb Cake Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using my Tasteful Labels Dies.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut 3 leaves out of a panel of Cinnamon Cider cardstock using the Gathered Leaves Dies.  I sponged some Mint Macaron Ink on the leaves and then crinkled them.  I adhered the leaves to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Cinnamon Cider 2020-2022 In-Color Enamel Dots to the sentiment label.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Gather Together Photopolymer Stamp Set in Crumb Cake Ink.  I stamped the wheat image from the Gather Together stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink, once full strength and once stamped off, on either side of the sentiment.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Mint Macaron mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Crumb Cake card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I stamped the wheat image from the Gather Together stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink, 1 full strength and 1 stamped off.  I adhered a panel of Gilded Autumn 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! Celebration Tidings Christmas Gift Bag Topper

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  Happy Autumn everyone!!!  How is everyone’s week going?  I hope everyone is having a productive one.

I have one more project that we made at our last virtual in person team meeting a week ago Sunday.  My awesome team leader Amy designed a Christmas Gift Bag Topper.  I was hoping to have a bag full of goodies to display it in.  Here is the project.

I started by cutting out the large, medium and small layering poinsettia flowers from a panel of Cherry Cobbler cardstock using the Poinsettia Dies.  I cut 3 of the leaves out using the Poinsettia Dies from a panel of Shaded Spruce cardstock.  I adhered the flowers together using Multipurpose Liquid Glue in the centers.  I adhered the leaves behind the flower using Glue Dots.  I added a Beaded Pearl to the center of the flower using a Glue Dot.  I cut a sprig die from the Poinsettia Dies out of a panel of Brushed Metallic cardstock and adhered it to the back of the poinsettia using a Glue Dot.

I cut the largest die from the Celebrations Labels Dies out of a panel of the Plaid Tidings 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper.  I scored and folded the die cut in half.  I adhered the poinsettia to the front of the label using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! 
Celebration Tidings Photopolymer Stamp Set in Cherry Cobbler Ink.  Using the Banner Triple Punch, I punched the end to make a banner.  Using the Banner Triple Punch I made a banner out of a strip of Plaid Tidings DSP.  I adhered the 2 banners together with Stampin’ Seal and adhered the banner to the bag topper using Glue Dots.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked this project and will try it. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Fireside Trimmings Fall

Good Monday morning my stamping friends.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Did anyone do anything fun?  I got some cleaning done and still had time for some crafting.  Hope you are all starting the week off well.

For today I have a card using the Stampin’ Up! Fireside Trimmings Bundle and the Stampin’ Up! Autumn Goodness Bundle to make a fall card.  Since it’s cooled off so much here I was thinking how nice it would be to sit in front of a fire.  Unfortunately I don’t have a fireplace, but I can dream.  Here’s my card.

My colors are from Color Throwdown Challenge #611.  Here are their colors.

I started by adhering a panel of In Good Taste Designer Series Paper to a Basic Gray mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to a Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped the fireplace image from the Stampin’ Up! Fireside Trimmings Photopolymer Stamp Set in Basic Gray Ink on a panel of Peony Garden Designer Series Paper.  There is a panel of DSP that looks like marble in this pack of paper, so that’s the one I used.  I added a little color on the fireplace using my Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the image out using the Fireside Dies.  Using the same dies and the same DSP I also cut out the center piece to the framed die.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Autumn Goodness Photopolymer Stamp Set in Basic Gray Ink in the center of the die cut piece.  On a small scrap of Crumb Cake cardstock I stamped the log image from the Fireside Trimmings stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink.  I cut the log image out using the Fireside Dies and I cut the log holder piece out of a small scrap of Basic Gray cardstock.  I adhered the fireplace to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the log holder inside the fireplace opening using my Fine Tip Glue Pen.  I adhered the logs using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Using the Fireside Dies, I cut a panel of Pear Pizzazz cardstock using the frame die and adhered it to the sentiment using my Fine Tip Glue Pen.  I adhered the sentiment to the top of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the floral image from the Autumn Goodness stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink.  I colored the image in using my Ivory, Old Olive and Soft Seafoam Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the image out using my Autumn Wheel Barrow Dies and adhered it to the top of the fireplace using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Autumn Goodness stamp set in Basic Gray Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the floral image from the Autumn Goodness stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink, stamping off once, over the sentiment.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pear Pizzazz mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I stamped the fireplace from the Fireside Trimmings stamp set in Basic Gray Ink on the envelope front and the log image in Crumb Cake Ink inside the fireplace. I colored the logs in using my Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends Markers and added some shading to the fireplace using my Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of Peony 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! Poinsettia Petals CAS

Good Sunday morning my fellow stampers.  How is everyone’s weekend going?  I have off today, but I will be doing some work around my house.  Time for some fall cleaning to get done.  I have to take down summer decorations and put up the fall.  It was chilly here this morning.  When I got up this morning it was only 40 degrees outside.  A definite sign that fall is here.

I have a Clean And Simple card for you today using the Masking Technique.  I went back to the basics using Stamps, Ink and Paper.  I tend to forget about simple when I’m making cards sometimes.  The very first workshop I went to years ago, we did not do simple cards.  Here’s my card for today.

I’m playing along with Fab Friday Challenge #197.  Here is their sketch.

I started by stamping 3 of the poinsettia image from the Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals Photopolymer Stamp Set in Merry Merlot Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I also stamped the image once on 2 Post-It notes.  I fussy cut the Post-It note images using my Paper Snips to use for my Masking Technique.  If you ever look at a poinsettia, the leaves around the flower are identical to the flower petals.  This is why I wanted to used the same leaves under the flower images.

I placed the Post-It note masks over the center and one of the side images so that I wouldn’t stamp over them.   I stamped the largest poinsettia layering image from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Garden Green Ink over and around the masked images.  I move the side Post-It to the other side image and stamped the large poinsettia image again in Garden Green Ink.  I removed the Post-Its and colored the images in using my Cherry Cobbler, Daffodil Delight and Just Jade Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I stamped the sentiment from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set on a small panel of Whisper White cardstock In Merry Merlot Ink.  I adhered the sentiment to the top of a strip of Merry Merlot cardstock, which I cut into a banner using my Paper Snips, using Stampin’ Seal just on the bottom of the sentiment.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the card front to a Merry Merlot mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to a Merry Merlot card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Merry Merlot Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the poinsettia image from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Merry Merlot Ink on the bottom of the panel. Using the Masking Technique again, I stamped the largest layering poinsettia image from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Garden Green Ink over the image.  I colored the image in using my Cherry Cobbler, Daffodil Delight and Just Jade Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Merry Merlot mat using Stampn’ Seal and then to the inside of the Merry Merlot card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the poinsettia image from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Merry Merlot Ink on the envelope front and flap.  Using the Masking Technique once again, I stamped the largest layering poinsettia image from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Garden Green Ink over the image.  I colored the images in using my Cherry Cobbler, Daffodil Delight and Just Jade Stampin’ Blends Markers.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card using the Masking Technique and will give it a try.  If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to drop me a note at creativestampingdesigns@gmail.com. I’d be more that happy to help you. This is a great technique that only uses Stamp, Ink and Paper, but looks like you did so much more.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflower Easel Birthday for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday.  How was everyone’s week?  Are you ready for the weekend? It’s starting to feel like fall here.  It’s been really cool at night and in the mid to upper 70’s during the day, perfect walking or yard work weather.

I’ve made another easel card for you today.  Now I know why my team member Mary loves these so much.  They are so much fun to design.  Here’s my card for today.

My colors were inspired by Paper Players Challenge #508.  Here are their colors.

I started by scoring and folding a Blackberry Bliss easel at 2 3/4″ and 5 1/2″ and adhering the 2 3/4″ section to a Blackberry Bliss card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I stamped the stem image from the Stampin’ Up! Daisy Lane Cling Stamp Set in Pretty Peacock Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I colored the leaves and the stem in using my Pretty Peacock Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Four Seasons Floral Photopolymer Stamp Set in Pretty Peacock Ink on the top of the Whisper White panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pretty Peacock mat using Stampin’ Seal.

I stamped the small sunflower image from the Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers Cling Stamp Set in Cajun Craze Ink on a small panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I colored the image in using my Cajun Craze Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I brushed some Clear Wink of Stella on the center of the sunflower go give it a little shimmer.  I fussy cut the sunflower out using my Paper Snips and adhered it to the stem using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut a couple of the leafy stems out from the Sunflower Dies in Pretty Peacock cardstock and adhered them to the stem using Glue Dots.  I tied a small bow using the 3/8″ Embroidered Ribbon and adhered it to the stems using a Glue Dot.

I adhered the artwork to the easel, just adding Multipurpose Liquid Glue to the bottom section of the easel.  I colored a few Pearl Basic Jewels with my Cajun Craze Stampin’ Blends Marker and adhered them to the card front and the card base.

For the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set towards the top of a Whisper White panel in Pretty Peacock Ink.  I stamped the small sunflower image from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Cajun Craze Ink, stamping off twice, over the sentiment.  I added some Clear Wink of Stella to the flower center.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pretty Peacock mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the Blackberry Bliss card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I stamped the sentiment from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink on a small panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I cut the image out using my Stitched Shapes Dies.  I cut a scalloped oval out of a panel of Pretty Peacock cardstock using the Layering Ovals Dies.  I adhered the sentiment to the Pretty Peacock scallop oval using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered the matted sentiment to the Whisper White panel, where I wanted the easel to set, using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the small sunflower from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Cajun Craze Ink on the envelope front and colored it in using my Cajun Craze and Pretty Peacock Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of Pretty Peacock 2019-2021 In-Color 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper 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! Snowflake Wishes for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends and welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop.  Hope you are all doing well today.  If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we have a sketch challenge. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects .
Here is our sketch for this week.

Here is my card using this sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of Snowflake Splendor Designer Series Paper to a Highland Heather card base using Stampin’ Seal.  I embossed a small Whisper White panel using the Winter Snow Embossing Folder and adhered it to a Silver Foil mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and then to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I cut a couple snowflakes from the So Many Snowflakes Dies out of a Silver Foil Sheet and adhered the larger one to the embossed panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the smaller snowflake on the opposite corner using Multipurpose Liquid Glue just on the center section.

On a strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Snowflake Wishes Photopolymer Stamp Set in Versamark Ink.  I immediately sprinkled it with my Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I adhered the sentiment to a Highland Heather mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Adhesive-Backed Snowflakes to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Snowflake Wishes stamp set in Highland Heather Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the snowflake images from the Snowflake Wishes stamp set in Highland Heather Ink, some full strength and some stamped off once.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Silver Foil mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Highland Heather card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the snowflake images from the Snowflake Wishes stamp set in Highland Heather Ink, some full strength and some stamped off, on the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of Snowflake Splendor DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for visiting my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Now that you’ve seen my card, take a minute to hop through all our projects today. If you click on the Next Blog button, you’ll go to Julie’s page. Or you can just click on the names below to go directly to all their blogs! Happy Hopping!!

Stampin’ Up! Celebration Tidings Valentine

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  We’re halfway through the week already and on the downhill to the weekend.  It’s been gorgeous weather here.  I’ve had my windows open all day and night.  After being without A/C all summer this is most welcoming.

Before I get to my card, I just wanted to let everyone know about World Card Making Day, Saturday October 3rd.  Our Inkin’ Krew Team will be doing videos all day, every hour.  I will actually be doing 2 Facebook Live videos that day.  I will post a schedule when we get closer.

Today’s card is the last card that we made on Sunday at our virtual in person team meeting.  The Stampin’ Up! Celebration Tidings Bundle has all different occasions in it.  This is such an awesome bundle to have that can be used over and over again.  It covers Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and Valentine’s Day.  What’s not to love about a bundle like this.  Here’s my card which was a design by my team member Sue.  Sue only used the stamp set for her design, I did have to adjust it a little since I didn’t have some of the items she was using.

I started by embossing a Whisper White panel using the Scripty 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the embossed panel to a Melon Mambo card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered a panel of Plaid Tidings 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Seaside Spray mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

From another panel of the Plaid Tidings DSP I cut the stitched heart from the Stitched Be Mine Dies.  I then cut a scalloped stitched heart from the Stitched Be Mine Dies.  I adhered the 2 hearts together using Stampin’ Dimensionals around the edges on the back and adhered it to the card front.  On a piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Celebration Tidings Photopolymer Stamp Set in Melon Mambo Ink.

Using my Paper Snips, I cut the words out separately and adhered them to the heart using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added some Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the heart and the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Meant To Be Cling Stamp Set in Melon Mambo Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the heart with the scroll from the Celebration Tidings stamp set on the top of the panel and the small hearts from the Celebration Tidings stamp set randomly around in Melon Mambo Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Seaside Spray mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Melon Mambo card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the heart with the scroll and the small heart from the Celebration Tidings stamp set in Melon Mambo Ink on the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of Plaid Tidings DSP to the envelope flap.

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