Stampin’ Up Wrapped In Plaid Swirly Frames Sneak Peek Christmas Card

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  How is everyone doing today?  Hope your week has started off well.

I have a sneak peek for you today from the 2019 Holiday Catalog.  If you are a customer of mine you have seen this set in the catalog on page 13.  This is a pretty quick and easy card to make.  Here’s my card.

I started by stamping the large and small circles from the Stampin’ Up Swirly Frames Photopolymer Stamp Set in Versamark Ink on a Shaded Spruce card front.  I immediately sprinkled it with my Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I adhered the card front to a Shaded Spruce card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I punched 3 trees out from the new gorgeous Wrapped In Plaid Designer Series Paper (available Sept 4th) using the Pine Tree Punch (available Sept 4th).  I adhered 2 of the trees using Glue Dots and the center tree using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut the sentiment out from Cherry Cobbler cardstock using the  Word Wishes Dies and adhered it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Perfect Plaid Photopolymer Stamp Set (available Sept 4th) in Cherry Cobbler Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the plaid tree image from the Perfect Plaid stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink on the bottom of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Shaded Spruce card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card off I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the plaid tree from the Perfect Plaid stamp set in Shaded Spruce twice and Cherry Cobbler once on the bottom of the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of the Wrapped In Plaid DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card.  The Perfect Plaid Stamp Set, the Wrapped In Plaid Designer Series Paper and the Pine Tree Punch will be available for purchase on September 4th.

Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up Happy Tails Pet Sympathy Card

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Anyone do anything fun?  I worked, but not my normal job.  I got to work at the Hungry Hound Dog Bakery we have here in town.  It’s so much fun working there, the puppies come in to visit and spend their money on treats and toys.  We bake all our own treats on the premises and they are delicious, I’ve tried quite a few.  They are all made with human edible products that are animal safe.

My card for today is NOT one I like to make.  My daughter’s best friend’s dog died last week.  It was a sudden thing, she wasn’t even sick and so very sad.  Her dog was the only dog my dog would tolerate staying in the same room with.  My dog is petrified of other dogs since she was attached when by one when she was a little puppy.  She doesn’t mind them through a fence, that she likes.  We are all going to miss JJ tremendously.   Here’s my card for today.

My card played along with CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge #334.  Here is their sketch.

My colors were inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge #321.  Here are their colors.  Aren’t they gorgeous together.

I started by adhering a panel of the Come To Gather Designer Series Paper to a Pretty Peacock mat using Snail.  I adhered the card front to a Soft Suede card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the dog image from the Happy Tails Photopolymer Stamp Set on a scrap of Whisper White cardstock in Soft Suede Ink and colored her in using my Light Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Marker.  I punched the dog out using my Dog Builder Punch.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the outline image of the dog house from the Happy Tails stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink.  I stamped the 2nd step of the dog house from the Happy Tails stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink, stamping off once, on top of the 1st one.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pretty Peacock mat using Snail.  I adhered the punched out dog to the Whisper White panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I colored the heart, which punched out when I punched the dog out, with my Dark Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends Marker and adhered it to the dog using a Glue Dog.  I adhered the artwork to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I stamped the sentiment from the Happy Tails stamp set on a thin strip of Whisper White cardstock in Cherry Cobbler Ink.  I stamped the pawprints from the Happy Tails stamp set on either side of the sentiment in Soft Suede Ink.  I adhered the sentiment strip to a Pretty Peacock mat using Snail and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from Happy Tails stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink in the center of a Whisper Whist panel.  I stamped the paw print image from the Happy Tails stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the bottom left of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pretty Peacock mat using Snail and then to the inside of my Soft Suede card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the dog image from the Happy Tails stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the front of the envelope and colored it in the same as I did for the card.  I stamped the paw print image from the Happy Tails stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the envelope front too.  I adhered a panel of Come To Gather 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 Floral Essence Swirly Frames Birthday Card

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers.  How is everyone doing today? Hope everyone’s week is moving along smoothly.

I have a pretty easy card for you today, though it does look a little involved, it’s not.  I’ve used a few different stamp sets for you today.  Here’s my card.

To my surprise, my card played along with a few different challenges today.  First off is TGIF Sketch Challenge #224.  Here is their sketch.

Next is Inspire. Create Colour Challenge #049.  Here are their colors.

I was also able to join in with “Just Us Girls” Trend Week Challenge #500.  Here is their theme.

I started by adhering the small Whisper White panel to the Pool Party card front with the tiniest amount of Snail just to hold it in place.  I then randomly stamped the large and small circle images from the Stampin’ Up Swirly Frames Photopolymer Stamp Set in Basic Gray Ink on the 2 panels overlapping some of the circles.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Basic Gray mat using Snail.  I then adhered the matted panel to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid glue matching the circles.

On a scrap of Mango Melody cardstock I stamped the flower image from the Stampin’ Up Floral Essence Photopolymer Stamp Set in Mango Melody Ink twice.  I punched the flowers out using the Perennial Flower Punch.  I adhered the flowers together using a Glue Dot and adhered it to the artwork panel using a Stampin’ Dimensional.  I stamped the leaf image from the Floral Essence stamp set 3 times in Pool Party Ink on a scrap of Pool Party cardstock and punched them out using the Leaf Punch.  I adhered the leaves under the flower using Glue Dots.

On a small strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Itty Bitty Birthdays Stamp Set in Basic Gray Ink.  I adhered the sentiment strip to a Basic Gray mat using Snail.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the card front to a Basic Gray card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I colored a few Clear Rhinestone Basic Jewels using my Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the colored rhinestones to the card front.

On the inside I stamped another flower image from the Floral Essence stamp set in Basic Gray Ink on the top and bottom of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the leaf image from the Floral Essence stamp set in Pool Party Ink around the flowers.  I colored the flowers in using my Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the inside of the flowers with the flower center image from the Floral Essence stamp set in Basic Gray Ink stamping off once.  I stamped the sentiment from the Floral Essence stamp set in Basic Gray Ink in the center of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Basic Gray card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the flower image from the Floral Essence stamp set in Basic Gray Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped the leaves from the Floral Essence stamp set in Pool Party Ink around the flowers.  I colored the flowers in the same as I did for the card.  I stamped the small circle image from the Swirly Frames stamp set in Basic Gray 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 Seasonal Wreath Sneak Peek

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  How is your week going?  We’re halfway through already.  Were you able to hop around yesterday and see all the amazing projects that our team made.  If not, be sure to go back to yesterday’s post and check out everyone’s beautiful work.

For today I have another sneak peek for you.  Take a look.

My colors were inspired by Just Add Ink Challenge #469.  I just love this combination of colors.  Here are their colors.

I also joined in with  the Try Stampin’ – Or Not – On Tuesday Challenge #420.  Here is their sketch.

I also played along with Double Trouble Paper Crafting Challenge #35.
They have a 3-2-1 recipe to follow.

I started by adhering a Terracotta Tile panel of the 2019-2021 In-Color Designer Series Paper to a Terracotta Tile mat using Snail.  I then adhered it to a Grapefruit Grove card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I embossed a small panel of Grapefruit Grove cardstock using the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder and cut a Stitched Rectangle Die out of it.  I cut a larger Stitched Rectangle Die out of Terracotta Tile cardstock and adhered the Grapefruit Grove rectangle to it using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the rectangles to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Using my Triple Banner Punch, I made a banner out of a strip of Pretty Peacock cardstock.  I made another banner using the Triple Banner Punch out of a strip of Pretty Peacock 2019-2021 In-Color DSP.  I adhered the DSP banner to the cardstock banner using Snail and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Seasonal Wreath Photopolymer Stamp Set (available Sept 4th) in Grapefruit Grove Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using my Stitched Shapes Dies.  I stamped the flower image from the Seasonal Wreath stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink above the sentiment.  I colored the flower image in using my Grapefruit Grove, Pretty Peacock and Terracotta Tile Stampin’ Write Markers.  I cut out a scalloped circle mat using my Layering Circles Dies in Terracotta Tile cardstock and adhered the artwork to it using Snail.  I adhered the matted artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Pretty Peacock 2019-2021 In-Color Faceted Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Seasonal Wreath stamp set in Grapefruit Grove Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the flower image from the Seasonal Wreath stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink along the bottom of the panel and colored them in using my Grapefruit Grove, Pretty Peacock, and Terracotta Tile Stampin’ Write Makers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pretty Peacock mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Grapefruit Grove card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the flower image from the Seasonal Wreath stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink along the bottom front of the envelope and colored them in the same as I did for the card.  I adhered a panel of the 2019-2021 In-Color DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for visiting my blog today.  I hope you liked my card.  The stamp set I used for today’s card will be available September 4th.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up Gather Together for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop.

The 2nd Tuesday of every month this amazing group of ladies put together a blog hop and you are guaranteed to see some gorgeous projects. This month our theme is ‘Fall Frenzy’. We can interpret this any way we would like to.  I’m excited to see what everyone comes up with.  If you are starting with me, be sure to hop around to see everyone’s projects. If you’ve hopped over from Connie Troyer’s blog, welcome to my blog and thank you for stopping by.

For today’s card I have another sneak peek for you.  I used a new bundle coming in the Holiday Catalog called Gather Together.  Here’s my card.

My card played along with the Fab Friday Challenge #169.  Here is their sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of the new Come To Gather Designer Series Paper (available Sept 4) to a Blackberry Bliss mat using Snail.  I adhered the matted DSP to a Pretty Peacock card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the wheat image from the Stampin’ Up Gather Together Photopolymer Stamp Set (available Sept 4) in Pretty Peacock Ink 3 times.  I cut the image out using the 2nd largest circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I adhered it to a Blackberry Bliss scallop circle mat, which I had cut out using my Layering Circles Dies, using Snail and then adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Using the Gathered Leaves Dies (available Sept 4) I cut out 4 leaves, 1 each in Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry, Cherry Cobbler and Rich Razzleberry cardstock.  I stamped the single pumpkin image from the Gather Together stamp set on a piece of Pumpkin Pie cardstock in Pumpkin Pie Ink and cut it out using the Gathered Leaves Dies.  I arranged the leaves and pumpkin on the bottom of the stitched circle the way I liked them and adhered them using Glue Dots and Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Gather Together stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink and cut it out using the Rectangle Stitched Dies.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the large leaf image from the Gather Together stamp set in Crushed Curry Ink, stamping off twice, in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the Gather Together stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink in the center of the leaf. I stamped the double pumpkin image from the Gather Together stamp set in Pumpkin Pie Ink on a piece of Pumpkin Pie cardstock and cut them out using the Gathered Leaves Dies.  I adhered them to the bottom of the Whisper White panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Blackberry Bliss mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Pretty Peacock card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card off I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the wheat image from the Gather Together stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink on the front of the envelope.  I adhered a panel of the Come To Gather DSP on the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card.  Now be sure to hit Previous to hop back to Connie Troyer’s blog or hit Next to head over to Amy Koenders blog. You can also click on each of the names and hop around that way. Happy Hopping!!

Stampin’ Up Natures Beauty Sneak Peek

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Did anyone do anything fun or exciting?  It was a beautiful weekend here. I went for a couple walks on Sunday.  I took a walk into town in the morning and since it was still cool enough I was able to bring Jasmine for a walk.  I feel so bad not bringing her, but the pavement is just too hot for her paws.  She love walking into town, she always thinks we’re going to her store, the dog bakery.  She knows they always give her extra treats.  Unfortunately they weren’t open yet.  Then in the afternoon my family and I went over to Dukes Estate for a nice long walk.  We only walked about 3 miles this time compared to the 7 last time we went.  I can’t wait to go back there in the fall when all the leaves are changing, and it will be a little cooler then.

I have another sneak peek from the 2019 Holiday Catalog for you.  Here’s my card for you today.

I joined in with Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #400 with my card today.  Here is their sketch.

My colors were inspired by CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge #333.  Here are their colors.

I started by stamping the sentiment from Stampin’ Up A Little Lace Cling Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink on the bottom of an Old Olive card front. I embossed the card front using the Woodland Embossing Folder and added 3 Gold Metallic Pearls to the top.

I embossed a small panel of Grapefruit Grove card stock using the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder and then adhered it to a Cajun Craze mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the matted panel to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I wrapped a piece of the Old Olive/Pretty Peacock 3/8″ Reversible Ribbon around the card front and using Multipurpose Liquid Glue I adhered the card front to an Old Olive card base.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the tree image from the Stampin’ Up Natures Beauty Cling Stamp Set (available Sept 4) in Soft Suede Ink a couple of times.  Using my Stamping Sponges I sponged the Whisper White panel using my Grapefruit Grove Ink on the top and Old Olive Ink on the bottom.   Using the grass image from the Natures Beauty stamp set I stamped some grass around the bottom sponged area in Old Olive Ink.  I adhered the sponged panel to a Cajun Craze mat using Snail.  On a small piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the fox image from the Natures Beauty stamp set in Cajun Craze Ink and fussy cut the image out using my Paper Snips.  I adhered the fox to the sponged panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals and adhered the panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I cut a leaf out of Cajun Craze cardstock using the Gathered Leaves Dies (available Sept 4).  I adhered the leaf to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the fox image from the Natures Beauty stamp set in Cajun Craze Ink, stamping off once, on the bottom of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the tree image from the Natures Beauty stamp set in Soft Suede Ink, stamping off twice, 3 times across the middle of the Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up A Big Thank You Photopolymer Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink in the center of the Whisper White panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Cajun Craze mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Old Olive card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the fox image from the Natures Beauty stamp set in Cajun Craze Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped the tree images from the Natures Beauty stamp set in Soft Suede Ink, some full strength and some stamped off, across the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you like my card.  This set will be available for purchase on September 4th.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up New Wonders Birthday Card

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers.  Are you almost ready for the weekend?  It’s coming up really quick now.  I never made it to the 4-H Fair yesterday.  We had bad thunder storms and a lot of rain.  I feel bad for all those kids that worked so hard on their projects and with their animals to have the 1st day be rained out.  Today and tomorrow are suppose to be beautiful so hopefully they will have a good turn out.

For today’s card I used a Host Exclusive set.  There are a few sets in the catalogs that are set aside just for hosts to earn.  I used one of my favorites, the Stampin’ Up New Wonders Cling Stamp Set.  I just love the fairy images in this set.  Here’s my card.

I joined in with Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge #320 today.  Here’s their sketch.

I also played along with TGIF Challenge #223.  Here are their colors.

I started by adhering a Coastal Cabana panel of the Brights 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Melon Mambo mat using Snail.  I adhered the matted panel to a Gorgeous Grape card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped one of the fairy images from the New Wonders stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I only colored the hair and skin of the fairy in using my Crumb Cake and Ivory Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the image out using the 2nd largest circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I adhered it to a Melon Mambo scalloped circle mat, which I cut out using my Layering Circles Dies, using Snail.  I adhered the artwork just under the DSP strip using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped the sentiment from the New Wonders stamp set on a strip of Melon Mambo cardstock in VersaMark Ink.  I immediately sprinkled it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I punched the top of the strip using the  Delightful Tag Topper Punch.  I adhered the tag to the card front using a Glue Dot and Stampin’ Dimensional.  I added a small bow that I had made from my Whisper White Solid Bakers Twine and adhered it using a Glue Dot.  I added a few Glitter Enamel Dots to the tag and the card front.

On the inside I stamped another one of the fairy images from the New Wonders stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, stamping off twice, on a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the leaf image from the New Wonders stamp set in all 4 corners in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I stamped the sentiment from the New Wonders stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on top of the fairy image.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Melon Mambo mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Gorgeous Grape card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the fairy image from the New Wonders stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of the Brights 6 X 6 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!!
