Stampin’ Up! Calming Camellia Biggest Wish

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend? I actually impressed myself yesterday. Since my husband had started undecorating and packing up Christmas while I was at work on Saturday, I finished most of it Saturday night. Sunday morning, I got up and finished packing up anything else I had to do. By 10:30am I was completely finished packing up Christmas, had everything back in my attic and I rearranged my furniture and vacuumed. I had the rest of the day for me, well kind of.

Today I have a mix of Sale-a-bration, 2021-2022 Annual Catalog and January-June 2022 Mini Catalog for you. I was using a little of everything to make a CAS card. Here’s my card for today.

I used the gorgeous Stampin’ Up! Calming Camellia Cling Stamp Set along with the Stampin’ Up! Biggest Wish Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Artfully Composed Designer Series Paper for my card today.

My Theme is from the Inspire. Create. Birthday Challenge #107.

My colors are from the Paper Players Challenge #573. I used White as my neutral color.

My design is from Sunday Stamps Challenge #273.

I started by adhering a panel of the Artfully Composed DSP to a Pale Papaya card base. Using my Stamparatus, I stamped the large sentiment from the Biggest Wish stamp set in Calypso Coral Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the 1st 2 sentiments then moved the sentiment to the bottom and stamped the bottom 2.

I stamped the large floral image and the swirl image from the Calming Camellia stamp set in Pale Papaya Ink over the sentiments. I cut the panel in half at 2 3/8″. I adhered both panels to a Just Jade mat using Stampin’ Seal. I stamped the script sentiment from the Biggest Wish stamp set in Just Jade Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock and fussy cut it using my Paper Snips.

I adhered the script sentiment using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Calming Camellia stamp set in Just Jade Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the large floral image from the Calming Camellia stamp set in Pale Papaya Ink on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic Whtie panel to a Just Jade mat and then to the inside of the Pale Papaya card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the large floral image from the Calming Camellia stamp set on the envelope front in Pale Papaya Ink. I stamped the sentiment from the Calming Camellia stamp set in Just Jade Ink over the image. I adhered a panel of 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. Just a reminder that today is the last day to take advantage of my Double Creative Stamping Designs Rewards. It ends tonight at 11:00pm ET. If you haven’t gotten your order in yet, there’s still time. This is a great time to get those rewards built up. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Catching Butterflies

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends. Welcome to the weekend. Hope you have something fun planned.

Before I get started on my card today, I want to remind you about my Double Creative Stamping Designs Rewards going on right now. You can only qualify for my double rewards until Monday January 10th at 11:00pm ET. Click Here to see my Rewards program. Today I used all Sale-a-bration items for my card. I love getting free products. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Catching Butterflies Cling Stamp Set along with the Simply Marbleous Designer Series Paper and the Sunshine & Rainbows Designer Series Paper for my card today. All these items are Sale-a-bration items and can be earned FREE with a qualifying order.

I started by stamping the girl and butterfly images from the Catching Butterflies stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I cut the image our using my Encircled in Beauty Dies. I colored the image in using my Bermuda Bay, Bronze, Ivory, Pool Party and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the grass image below the girl’s foot in Soft Succulent Ink. As much as I dislike fussy cutting, I love Paper Piecing. On a small panel of Sunshine & Rainbow DSP I stamped the dress image of the girl in Tuxedo Black Ink and fussy cut it using my Paper Snips. I adhered it to the girl image using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped the collage of butterflies from the Catching Butterflies stamp set on a panel of Simply Marbleous DSP in Tuxedo Black Ink. I adhered the die cut girl image to the panel of DSP letting it hang over the edge a bit. I trimmed the die cut even with the DSP using my Paper Trimmer. I adhered the layered panel to a Basic Black mat using Stampin’ Seal.

On a strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Catching Butterflies stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I adhered a piece of Pool Party 3/8″ Sheer Ribbon to the card front. I adhered the sentiment over the ribbon using Glue Dots. I adhered the layered card front to a Basic White Thick card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Catching Butterflies stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the butterfly images from the Catching Butterflies stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the panel around the sentiment. I adhered a strip of the Simply Marbleous DSP to the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic Whtie panel to a Basic Black 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 butterfly image from the Catching Butterflies stamp set in Tuxedo Black on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of Simply Marbleous 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! Friendly Hello 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. If you are hopping over from Akiko Sudano’s blog, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we have a Sketch Challenge and it’s my favorite kind!!! I can’t wait to see what everyone has created this week. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects. Here is my card using this week’s Sketch.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Sale-a-bration Friendly Hello Bundle for my card today.

Here is our sketch for this week.

I started by adhering a panel of the Friendly Hello Designer Series Paper to a Fresh Freesia card base.

I cut another panel of the Friendly Hello DSP using the 4th largest rectangle from the Stitched Rectangle Dies. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Friendly Hello Photopolymer Stamp Set in Shaded Spruce Ink. I cut the sentiment out using the 2nd largest long Stitched Rectangle Die. I adhered the sentiment to a Fresh Freesia mat using Stampin’ Seal.

I adhered the Silver Trim from the Simply Elegant Trim to the panel of DSP using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered sentiment over the trim using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and added a few Iridescent Rhinestones Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Celebrating You Cling Stamp Set in Shaded Spruce Ink on a Basic White panel. I adhered 2 strips of the Friendly Hello DSP to either side of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Fresh Freesia mat and then to the inside of the Fresh Freesia card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the small flower from the Friendly Hello stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink on the bottom front of the envelope. I adhered a panel of the Friendly Hello 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.

I used the new Stampin’ Up! Ranunculus Romance Bundle along with the Pattern Party Host Designer Series Paper for my Clean & Layered card today. I was inspired by the beautiful roses in the photo along with the colors.

I hope you will take a moment to visit The Card Concepts and join us for our challenge #166.  How are you inspired by this photo?

I started by adhering a panel of the Pattern Party DSP to a Basic White Thick card base.

From a panel of Flirty Flamingo and Petal Pink cardstock, I cut a detailed and solid flower using my Ranunculus Dies. I adhered them together using a tiny amount of Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the flower to the card front.

From a panel of Basic White cardstock I cut the largest circle from my Layering Circles Dies. I stamped the rose image and sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Ranunculus Romance Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I cut the images using my Ranunculus Dies. I colored the rose image in using my Flirty Flamingo and Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends Markers. I embossed the large circle using my Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder. I cut the largest scalloped circle using my Layering Circles Dies from a panel of the Brushed Metallic cardstock. I adhered the embossed circle to the gold circle using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered a piece of the Petal Pink 5/8″ Organdy Striped Ribbon to the circle then the flower over it using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the layered circle to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the sentiment to the bottom of the circle using a Glue Dot and Stampin’ Dimensional. I added a few Iridescent Rhinestones Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Special Moments Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. This set is a Sale-a-bration item and can be earned FREE with a qualifying order. I stamped the rose image from the Ranunculus Romance stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the side of the panel and colored it in using my Flirty Flamingo, Granny Apple Green and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic Whtie panel to a Petal Pink mat and then to the inside of the Basic White Thick card base.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the rose image from the Ranunculus Romance stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I colored the image in using my Flirty Flamingo, Granny Apple Green and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of the Pattern Party 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 Silhouettes CAS Birthday

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. I hope you all had a wonderful long weekend and are ready to take on a new year.

Today I have a sneak peek of a couple new sets for you using just Stamp, Ink and Paper. One you can buy and one you can earn for FREE. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Amazing Silhouettes Cling Stamp Set, which will be available for purchase starting tomorrow January 4th. I also used the Stampin’ Up! Special Moments Photopolymer Stamp Set, which is a FREE Sale-a-bration item you can earn starting tomorrow January 4th.

I started by using my Simply Scored Scoring Tool to make the background panel of Misty Moonlight cardstock. I put the cardstock in on an angle and using my Stylus, I scored the panel of cardstock every 1/2″. I turned the cardstock and scored again to make the diamond embossed panel, scoring every 1/2″. I flipped the cardstock so the raised side was up and adhered it to a Misty Moonlight card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the butterfly silhouette image from the Amazing Silhouettes stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink. I stamped the sentiment from the Special Moments stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink on the bottom of the panel.

I adhered the artwork to a Misty Moonlight mat and then to a Basic White mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Special Moments stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the butterfly silhouette image from the Amazing Silhouettes stamp set next to the sentiment. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Misty Moonlight mat and then to the inside of the Misty Moonlight card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the butterfly silhouette image from the Amazing Silhouettes stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the 2020-2022 In-Color 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! Queen Anne’s Lace Thank You

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone doing today? Hope you are enjoying your long weekend. For me, it’s the beginning of the month which means I have to go into work to do the bills. Not sure if I’m going to have to work at the register in between or not. We’re having a bit of a Covid outbreak in the store this past week, so I’ve been scrambling to get all the time filled in so that we have all the cashiers we need.

Today I have a mix of old and new for my card. I used a set from the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog and an Embossing Folder from the January-June 2022 Mini Catalog. Here’s my card for today.

I used the gorgeous Stampin’ Up! Queen Anne’s Lace Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the new Gingham Embossing Folder (available January 4, 2022), for my card today.

I started by stamping the stem image from the Queen Anne’s Lace stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink on a Basic White card front. I stamped the floral image from the Queen Anne’s Lace stamp set in Petal Pink Ink on the stem. I stamped the sentiment from the Queen Anne’s Lace stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink next to the floral image.

I adhered the card front to a Soft Sea Foam mat and then to a Basic White mat. I wrapped a piece of the new Petal Pink 1/8″ Cotton Ribbon from the Cotton Ribbon Combo Pack (available January 4, 2022) and tied a bow.

I embossed a panel of Soft Sea Foam cardstock using the new Gingham Embossing Folder and adhered it to a Soft Sea Foam card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Champagne Rhinestones Basic Jewels to the artwork.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Queen Anne’s Lace stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink on a Basic Whtie panel. I stamped the floral image from the Queen Anne’s Lace stamp set on the side of the panel the same as I did for the card front. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Soft Sea Foam mat and then to the inside of the Soft Sea Foam card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the floral image from the Queen Anne’s Lace stamp set on the envelope front the same as I did for the card. I embossed a panel of Soft Sea Foam cardstock using the Gingham Embossing Folder and adhered it to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Bamboo Beauty Thank You

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends, Happy New Year!!! Welcome to 2022. How was everyone’s New Year’s Eve? Hope you were able to celebrate in a fun way. I went to work for a couple hours to get my end of the month/year stuff done came home and was able to reorganize my craft table (which is something I do every year on New Year’s Day). My husband and daughter made some appetizers, we watched a movie, which I fell asleep halfway through, but woke up at 11:54 just in time to welcome the new year and go back to sleep. Another exciting New Year’s Eve at our house. Today I have the day off, YAY!!!

I used another set from the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog today to make a clean and simple card using just Stamps, Ink and Paper. I thought I’d start the new year nice and simple. I did use Evening Evergreen, but for some reason in all the pictures it looks like Basic Black. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Bamboo Beauty Cling Stamp Set for my card today.

I started by adhering a sticky note that I had cut a circle out of on a Basic Whtie card front. Using my Blending Brushes, I started with So Saffron Ink, then Daffodil Delight Ink and Calypso Coral Ink around the edges. Once I had the color that I wanted I lifted the sticky note off my card front.

I stamped the bamboo images from the Bamboo Beauty stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink over the sun image. I stamped the leaf images from the Bamboo Beauty stamp set on the bamboo in Evening Evergreen Ink.

I stamped the sentiment from the Bamboo Beauty stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink next to the bamboo images. I adhered the card front to a Basic Whtie mat and then to an Evening Evergreen card base.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Bamboo Beauty stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the bamboo and leaf images from the Bamboo Beauty stamp set on the side of the panel in Evening Evergreen Ink, stamping off on scrap paper 3 times. I adhered the Basic Whtie panel to an Evening Evergreen mat and then to the inside of the Evening Evergreen card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the bamboo and leaf images from the Bamboo Beauty stamp set on the envelope front and flap in Evening Evergreen Ink.

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! Artistically Inked for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. Happy New Year’s Eve!!! Does anyone have any plans for tonight or tomorrow? It’ll be a quiet night at my house.

I used a set today from the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog. Sometimes I forget about the annual catalog when the new catalogs are available. Here’s my card for today,

I used the Stampin’ Up! Artistically Inked Cling Stamp Set along with the Expressions In Ink Specialty Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by stamping the sentiment from the Artistically Inked stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the bottom of a Pale Papaya card front. I stamped the small floral image from the Artistically Inked stamp set in Pale Papaya Ink around the sentiment. I embossed the panel using the new Stripes & Splatters 3D Embossing Folder (available January 4, 2022).

I took a panel of Expressions In Ink DSP and scored, cut & folded it as in the diagram below. I adhered the cut & folded panel to the Pale Papaya card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue along the top edge, left side and the small right side.

I wrapped a piece of the Old Olive/Pretty Peacock 3/8″ Reversible Ribbon around the top of the panel and tied a small bow. I adhered the card front to a Pale Papaya card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Gilded Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Artistically Inked stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the small flower image from the Artistically Inked stamp set in Pale Papaya Ink on either side of the sentiment. I stamped the leaf images in Old Olive Ink on the flowers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Pale Papaya mat and then to the inside of the Pale Papaya card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic Whtie Medium Envelope. I stamped the small flower image from the Artistically Inked stamp set in Pale Papaya Ink on the envelope front and the leaves in Old Olive Ink. I adhered a panel of Expressions In Ink 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! Eden’s Garden Paneled Hello

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. We’re halfway through the week and on our way to a New Year!!! How does everyone celebrate bringing in the New Year? It’ll be a quiet one at my house again I believe.

Today’s card features the gorgeous Ever Eden Specialty Designer Series Paper that will be going away on Monday January 3,2022, that’s in just 5 more days. You might want to grab a pack or 2 (or 3) if you haven’t gotten yours yet. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Eden’s Garden Cling Stamp Set along with the Ever Eden DSP for my card today.

I started by cutting and adhering 3 equal strips of the Ever Eden DSP and adhering them to an Evening Evergreen card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, so I had a little wiggle room. I adhered the panel to a gold mat from the Brushed Metallic Paper.

I wrapped a piece of Evening Evergreen 3/8″ Open Weave Ribbon around the layered panel and tied a small bow. I adhered the layered panel to an Evening Evergreen card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the floral image from the Eden’s Garden stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink. I stamped the sentiment from the Eden’s Garden stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink over the floral image. I cut the image our using my Layering Circle Dies and adhered it over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Garden Gems, which will also be going away January 3, 2022, to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the floral image from the Eden’s Garden stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the sentiment from the Eden’s Garden stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink on top of the floral image. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Soft Succulent mat and then to the inside of the Evening Evergreen card base.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the floral image from the Eden’s Garden stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the Ever Eden 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!!
