Stampin’ Up! Treasured Kindness for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. I hope everyone is doing well today. Today is my daughter’s 24th birthday. I can’t believe that 24 years have gone by that quickly. She’s not only my daughter but my friend. We do most everything together. Unfortunately for the first time in years she has class today. Being a Memorial Day baby, she would almost always have her birthday off. Our plans are to celebrate it on Saturday with her friend and Monday with a small picnic.

If you are hopping over from Akiko Sudano’s blog, thank you for stopping by. This week we have a Sketch Challenge. Here is my card using this week’s Sketch.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Treasured Kindness Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Flowering Fields Designer Series Paper for my card today.

This is our sketch for this week.

I started by adhering a panel of Flowering Fields DSP to a Pear Pizzazz card base.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sun image from the Treasured Kindness stamp set in So Saffron Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper, in the center of the panel. I stamped the tree image from the Treasured Kindness stamp set. I stamped the tree trunk in Soft Suede Ink stamping the detailed full strength and the fill image stamped off once on scrap paper. I stamped the treetop stamping the detailed image in Pear Pizzazz Ink and the fill image in Soft Sea Foam Ink. I stamped the ground image from the Treasured Kindness stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink below the tree. I cut the panel using my Deckled Rectangle Dies (which have become my new favorite dies) and adhered it to the card base.

On a strip of So Saffron cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Treasured Kindness stamp set in Soft Suede Ink. I adhered the sentiment strip to a strip of Pear Pizzazz cardstock using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sun image from the Treasured Kindness stamp set in So Saffron Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the sentiment from the Treasured Kindness stamp set in Soft Suede Ink over the sun. I stamped the tree image from the Treasured Kindness stamp set on the bottom of the panel the same as I did for the card front. I adhered the Basic White panel to a So Saffron mat and then to the inside of the Pear Pizzazz card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the tree image from the Treasured Kindness stamp set on the envelope front the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of Flowering Fields 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 and see everyone’s projects today.

Stampin’ Up! Cup Of Tea Thanks

Good Monday morning my stamping friends and Happy National World Turtle Day. My daughter LOVES turtles so I know this day LOL. How was everyone’s weekend? I enjoyed my day off yesterday. After doing a little cleaning and weeding I got to spend some time at my craft table. I could weed every day and those weeds just don’t go away. My neighbors probably think I’m crazy out there weeding at 6am. I bring my dog out to the backyard and while I’m waiting for her, I pull some weeds. I have multiple flower gardens in my backyard and there always seems to be weeds in them no matter how much I try. Once everything really starts to bloom, I’m hoping you won’t really be able to see the weeds.

I have a quick card today using one of my favorite sets from the new 2022-2023 Annual Catalog. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Cup Of Tea Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Tea Boutique 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper and the Amazing Thanks Dies for my card today.

My design is from the Hand Stamped Sentiments Sketch Challenge #389.

I started by adhering a panel of the Tea Boutique DSP to a Petal Pink card base. I adhered a panel of Calypso Coral cardstock to the card front using Stampin’ Seal

I cut a panel of Basic White cardstock into a banner using my Paper Snips. I stamped the teacup image from the Cup of Tea stamp set in Gray Granite Ink on the banner. I stamped the leaf image from the Cup of Tea stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink on the top of the cup. I colored the teacup using my Petal Pink and Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the banner to the card front. I added a few Fun Flowers Resin Shapes to the stamped leaf image.

Using my Amazing Thanks Dies I cut the sentiment from a panel of Calypso Coral cardstock. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Cup of Tea stamp set in Gray Granite Ink on a Basic White Panel. I stamped the teacup image from the Cup of Tea stamp set on the bottom of the panel in Gray Granite Ink. I stamped the leaf image on top of the teacup in Soft Sea Foam Ink. I colored the image using my Petal Pink and Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a strip of the Tea Boutique DSP to the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Calypso Coral mat and then to the inside of the Petal Pink card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the teacup image from the Cup of Tea stamp set in Gray Granite Ink on the envelope front. I stamped the leaf image from the Cup of Tea stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink on the cup. I colored the image using my Petal Pink and Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of the Tea Boutique 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! A Little Cheesy

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone’s weekend going? Hope you are doing something fun. I’ve got the day off, but I’m not sure what I will be doing yet. It’s supposed to be another warm one here. I believe yesterday hit 98 by me. I just love the warmer weather. I came home from a busy, crazy day at work and just sat outside on my patio for a while in the sun relaxing.

Today’s card doesn’t use any dies. Doesn’t use any punches. Doesn’t use any embellishments. What it does use is Stamps, Ink and Paper. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! A Little Cheesy Cling Stamp Set along with the Artistic Mix Decorative Masks and the Stampin’ Up! Through It Together Cling Stamp Set for today’s card.

I started with my Basic White card front and adhered the Artistic Mix Mask using Post-It note tape. Using my Blending Brush, I added Crumb Cake Ink a little at a time until I had the shade that I wanted.

I adhered a strip of Orchid Oasis and Starry Sky cardstock to the card front using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the card front to a Starry Sky card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment and cookie image from A Little Cheesy stamp set in Early Espresso Ink. I colored the image using my Crumb Cake and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Crumb Cake mat. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from Through It Together stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the cookie image from A Little Cheesy stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the bottom of the panel. I colored the image using my Crumb Cake and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to an Orchid Oasis mat and then to the inside of the Starry Sky card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the cookie image from A Little Cheesy stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the envelope front. I colored it using my Crumb Cake and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers. Using the Artistic Mix Masks and Blending Brush, I colored the envelope flap with Crumb Cake Ink.

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

Stampin’ Up! Bouquet of Thanks for Fun Fold Friday with Video Tutorial

Good Friday morning my stamping friends welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How are you all doing today? Are you ready for the weekend? I hope you are making some fun plans. It’s supposed to be a hot one here, last I heard was the upper 90’s.

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’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Bouquet of Thanks Cling Stamp Set along with the Stampin’ Up! Charming Sentiments Photopolymer Stamp Set and the 2022-2024 In-Color 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my easel card today.

I started by adhering a panel of the 2022-2024 In-Color DSP to a Sweet Sorbet mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I scored & folded the Crumb Cake card base as listed below. I adhered the smaller panel of Sweet Sorbet cardstock to the top section of the card base front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the layered panel to the bottom section of the card base front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped the floral image from the Bouquet of Thanks stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on a panel of Crumb Cake cardstock. I stamped the sentiment banner from the floral image on a panel of Shimmery White cardstock in Soft Suede Ink. I fussy cut the banner using my Paper Snips. I adhered the fussy cut banner to the stamped panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the artwork to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small panel of Shimmer White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Charming Sentiments stamp set in Soft Suede Ink. I adhered the sentiment to a Sweet Sorbet mat using Stampin’ Seal.

On the inside I stamped the top of the floral image from the Bouquet of Thanks stamp set in Soft Suede Ink, stamping off twice on scrap paper, on the side of the Shimmery White panel. I adhered the Shimmery White panel to a Sweet Sorbet mat and then to the inside of the Crumb Cake card base. I figured out where I wanted to put the small sentiment and adhered it using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the flowers from the Bouquet of Thanks stamp set on the envelope front in Soft Suede Ink. I adhered a panel of the 2022-2024 In-Color DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! He’s All That

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone doing today? I hope your week has started out productive.

I have another Father’s Day card for you today. You all know how I struggle with masculine cards, and when I get an idea, I try to run with it. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! He’s The Man Suite Collection along for my card today.

I started by cutting 2 panels of He’s The Man Designer Series Paper in half diagonally. I adhered the 2 triangles to a Soft Succulent mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered the layered panel to an Early Espresso card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered a piece of the Sahara Sand 3/8″ ribbon from the Old Olive & Sahara Sand Twill Ribbon Combo Pack on the card front in a ‘Z’ form with a small amount of Stampin’ Seal.

From a panel of Early Espresso cardstock, I cut out one of the framed dies from the All That Dies. I adhered one of the die-cut sentiments from the He’s All That DSP using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the matted sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few rustic Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! He’s All That Cling Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I adhered 2 strips of the He’s The Man DSP to either side of the Basic White panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Soft Succulent mat and then to the inside of the Early Espresso card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of He’s The Man DSP to the envelope front and a panel to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked today’s masculine card and will give it a try. This He’s The Man DSP makes masculine cards so quick and easy to make. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Mischievous Mice Thanks

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend? It was a rainy one here Saturday but turned out to be pretty nice on Sunday. Yesterday after our team meeting, I finally got some of my Paper Pumpkin kits finished. I’m determined to get myself caught up with all the kits I have and then maybe I can get them done as they come in each month. I was able to finish 3 kits, which was 27 cards. I have one kit sitting on my table all taken apart to finish after work today.

Today’s card uses the basics, Stamps, Ink and Paper. I thought I’d do something simple for a change, lol. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Mischievous Mice Cling Host Stamp Set for my card today.

My design is from Inspire. Create. Challenge #116.

I started by stamping the mouse image from the Mischievous Mice stamp set on a panel of Basic White cardstock in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image in using my Crumb Cake, Flirty Flamingo, Gray Granite, Smoky Slate and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I stamped the splatter image from the Stampin’ Up! Color & Contour Photopolymer Stamp Set in So Saffron Ink on the 2 corners of the panel.

I stamped the sentiment from the Mischievous Mice stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink next to the mouse image on the card front. I adhered the card front to a Basic White Thick card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Mischievous Mice stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the splatter image from the Color & Contour stamp set in So Saffron Ink on the 2 corners of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to the inside of the Basic White Thick card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the mouse image and the sentiment from the Mischievous Mice stamp set on the envelope front in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of Subtle 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper 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! Bottled Happiness

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. Happy Mother’s Day to all. I hope you get to have a relaxing, enjoyable day. I’ll be at work, and I have this feeling it’s going to be a slow day with all the rain we are having right now.

I have a quick card for you today using some of the new 2022-2024 In-Colors along with new products from the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Bottled Happiness Bundle along with the Stampin’ Up! Go To Greetings Cling Stamp Set and the Tea Boutique 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by stamping the floral image from the Stampin’ Up! Bottled Happiness Photopolymer Stamp Set on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I first stamped the leaf and flower center image in Parakeet Party Ink towards the top of the panel. I stamped the flower image over the leaf image in Sweet Sorbet Ink. On a small panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the outline bottle image from the Bottled Happiness stamp set in Orchid Oasis Ink. I stamped the bottle fill image over the outlined image in Orchid Oasis Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper. I punched the bottle out using the Vintage Bottle Punch

On the top of the Basic White panel, I stamped the sentiment from the Bottled Happiness stamp set in Orchid Oasis Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to an Orchid Oasis mat. I adhered a panel of Tea Boutique DSP to a Sweet Sorbet card base using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to the base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I tied a piece of Parakeet Party Baker’s Twine from the 2022-2024 In- Color Baker’s Twine Pack, around the neck of the bottle and tied a bow. I adhered the bottle below the stamped floral image using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Go To Greetings stamp set in Orchid Oasis Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the floral image from the Bottled Happiness stamp set in Parakeet Party and Sweet Sorbet Ink on the top of the panel. I adhered a strip of the Tea Boutique DSP to the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to an Orchid Oasis mat and then to the inside of the Sweet Sorbet card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the floral image from the Bottled Happiness stamp set in Parakeet Party and Sweet Sorbet Inks on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the Tea Boutique 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! Amazing Year Birthday

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends and welcome to the weekend. I hope you have something fun planned. It’s raining here and it’s not supposed to be nice tomorrow either. I’m hoping since I have to work tomorrow that I can spend some time doing my favorite thing, stamping.

Today I have an easy card using some new products from the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog. Here’s my card for today.

I used the new Stampin’ Up! Amazing Year Cling Stamp Set along with the Design A Daydream Designer Series Paper for my card today. This paper is available as a Stampin’ Reward either by hosting a party or placing an order of $150 or more. I’d be more than happy to talk to you more about it if you are interested.

I started by stamping the flower image from the Amazing Year stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I colored it in using my Mint Macaron and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image out using the new Deckled Rectangle Dies.

I adhered a panel of Design A Daydream DSP to a Mint Macaron card front. I wrapped a piece of the new Petal Pink 3/8″ Soft Polyester Ribbon around the layered panel and tied a knot. I adhered the layered panel to a Mint Macaron card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Brushed Brass Butterflies to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Amazing Year stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the gift image from the Amazing Year stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the top of the panel. I colored the image in using my Mint Macaron and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a strip of Design A Daydream DSP to the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Mint Macaron mat and then to the inside of the Mint Macaron card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the flower image from the Amazing Year stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and colored it using my Mint Macaron and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a strip of the Design a Daydream 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! Let’s Set Sail Father’s Day

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend. It was beautiful here, especially yesterday. I believe it was 78 and sunny most of the day. Now we’re back to rain and 50. Is anyone else watching the clock like I am? Less than 24 hours till the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog goes live, YAY!!!! I can’t wait. I’ve got my list all ready to go starting with my must haves right away, then my I want it now’s, followed by I’ll get it next week if I can wait that long and finally I want them, but I can wait a bit. I will be hitting that expedite button so I have my new goodies in a day or 2 so that I can get all the DSP cut up and shipped out to you ASAP.

Today’s card is one that we will be making at my monthly class tomorrow night. I thought I’d start the night off, and today’s post, with all the new 2022-2024 In-Colors. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Let’s Set Sail Bundle along with the Stampin’ Up! Gentle Waves Cling Stamp Set and the Stampin’ Up! Happy & Heartfelt Cling Stamp Set for my card today.

I started by embossing a panel of Basic White card front using the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder. On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the water image from the Gentle Waves stamp set first in Tahitian Tide Ink. I moved the panel up a little and stamped it again in Starry Sky Ink. I adhered the stamped panel to the embossed panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sailboat image from the Let’s Set Sail stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink. I colored the masts in Parakeet Party using my 2022-2024 In- Colors Stampin’ Write Markers. I stamped the sails images from the Let’s Set Sail stamp set in Orchid Oasis and Sweet Sorbet Inks. Using my Sailboat Builder Punch, I cut all the images out. Before punching them, I cut them apart using my Paper Snips to make it a little easier to punch. I adhered the sailboats to the stamped panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I stamped the shadow image from the Let’s Set Sail stamp set in Starry Sky Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper, below the boat image.

I adhered the Sweet Sorbet sails using Glue Dots and the Orchid Oasis sails using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I stamped the bird image from the Let’s Set Sail stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink on the top of the panel. On a small panel of Basic Whtie cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Let’s Set Sail stamp set in Starry Sky Ink. I cut the sentiment out using my Stylish Shapes Dies. I wrapped a piece of Starry Sky Baker’s Twine from the 2022-2024 In-Color Baker’s Twine Pack around the panel twice tying a knot on the back. I adhered the sentiment using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the card front to a Basic White Thick card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a Parakeet Party 2022-2024 matte Decorative Dots to the sentiment.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Happy & Heartfelt stamp set in Starry Sky Ink on a Basic Whtie panel. On the bottom of the panel, I stamped the water image from the Gentle Waves stamp set in Tahitian Tide Ink. I stamped the sailboat images from the Let’s Set Sail stamp set in Sahara Sand and Sweet Sorbet Inks on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the shadow image from the Let’s Set Sail stamp set in Starry Sky Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper, below the boat. I stamped the birds’ image around the sentiment. I adhered the Basic White panel to the inside of the Basic White Thick card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the water image from the Gentle Waves stamp set on the envelope front in Tahitian Tide Ink. I stamped the sailboat image from the Let’s Set Sail stamp set in Orchid Oasis and Sahara Sand on the bottom of the envelope. I stamped the birds in Smoky Slated Ink. I adhered a panel of Sahara Sand Neutrals 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! Amazing Artfully Layered

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends and welcome to the weekend. I hope you have something fun planned this weekend. It’s April 30th and tomorrow is May 1st, that means I work in the office both days. Well, I was supposed to. One of my cashiers called me last night sick, so I’ll be opening today and running a register until another one can get in. Today was going to be a nice easy day, I was going in around noon to get my work done and come home. I’ll now be in early, my cashier said she may not be in until 2-3pm, so I’ll be there till 5pm I guess. I’ll probably take Monday off, but I haven’t decided yet.

I can’t believe we’re at the end of the month again. That means we’re even closer to warmer weather, but better than that, we’re only 3 days away from the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog going live YAY!!! Are you getting those shopping lists ready? Mine is 2 pages long. If you have a long list, you might want to be reading the special going on starting May 3rd. All the details are below.

Today’s card was made for someone very special, my upline Jaimie. She just earned the Stampin’ Up! incentive trip and hit a big milestone, she is truly amazing. My card has very little stamping today. I used Designer Series Paper and dies. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Artfully Layered Cling Stamp Set along with the Artfully Composed Designer Series Paper and the Amazing Thanks Dies for my card today.

I started by adhering a panel of Artfully Composed DSP to a Basic White Thick card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I cut a panel of Basic White card stock using the 3rd largest die from the Scalloped Contour Dies. I adhered a panel of Artfully Composed DSP to the die cut panel. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

From a panel of Basic White cardstock I cut the smaller detailed sentiment dies from the Amazing Thanks Dies. From a panel of Just Jade cardstock I cut the bubble sentiment dies from the Amazing Thanks Dies. I adhered the Basic White detailed to the Just Jade bubble die using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered the sentiment to the scalloped panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few 2021-2023 In-Color Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Artfully Layered stamp set in Just Jade Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the small leaf image from the Artfully Layered stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink on the top of the panel. I stamped the script image from the Artfully Layered stamp set in Pale Papaya Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper, over the leaf image twice. I adhered the Basic White panel to an Artfully Composed DSP mat and then to the inside of the Basic White Thick card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the large leaf image from the Artfully Layered stamp set in Just Jade Ink. I stamped the script image from the Artfully Layered stamp set in Pale Papaya Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper, over the leaf image twice. I stamped the sentiment from the Artfully Layered stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink over the leaf and script. I adhered a panel of the Artfully Composed 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!!
