Stampin’ Up Wishing You Well

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Did anyone do anything fun?  I don’t usually rush weeks, but the end of this week is OnStage.  I’ll get to see the new 2019-2020 Annual catalog and all the new goodies coming out.  Hopefully next Monday I’ll be able to share some things with you.

For today’s card I really went outside of my comfort zone.  It’s not straight, and I meant to do this, it’s just not my normal.  I used the Stampin’ Up Wishing You Well Stamp Set, which was carried over from the holiday catalog.  This set has the most realistic bow ever.  I think that is one of the reasons I bought it.  Here’s my card.

I also joined in with CAS Colours and Sketches #315.  Here are their colors for the week.

I started with a card front of the Brights 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper in Gorgeous Grape and adhered it to a Gorgeous Grape card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the bouquet from the Wishing You Well stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink.  I added the flowers to the bouquet in Gorgeous Grape Ink.  I cut the image out using my Big Shot and the Square Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.  I stamped the bow from the same stamp set in Grapefruit Grove Ink and fussy cut it using my Paper Snips.  I cut a scalloped square frame from the Layering Squares Framelits Dies out of Grapefruit Grove cardstock.  I did this by picking the scalloped square I wanted to use and took a solid square 2 sizes smaller and cut them out together with my Big Shot.  On a strip of Granny Apple Green cardstock I stamped the sentiment from Stampin’ Up Itty Bitty Greetings in Versamark Ink.  I sprinkled it with my Grapefruit Grove Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat set it using my Heat Tool.

It took me a while to arrange this to my liking, but once I got it I secured the frame in the corners using Glue Dots.  I adhered the artwork over the frame using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the bow to the bottom of the bouquet using a Mini Stampin’ Dimensional.  I adhered the sentiment to the bottom of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I added a few Grapefruit Grove Share What You Love Artisan Pearls to the artwork and the sentiment.

On the inside I stamped the bouquet from the Wishing You Well stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink, stamping off twice, in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the flowers in the bouquet in Gorgeous Grape Ink stamping off 3 times.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Strong and Beautiful Stamp Set in Gorgeous Grape Ink over the bouquet.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Grapefruit Grove 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 bouquet from the Wishing You Well stamp set the same as I did for the card on the envelope front.  I adhered a piece 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!!

Stampin’ Up Dragonfly Dreams

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers.  Has anyone made any fun plans for the weekend?  It’s supposed to be a nice weekend here by me.  More like spring weather.

For today’s card I pulled out a set I haven’t used in a while, the Stampin’ Up Dragonfly Dreams Stamp Set.  Take a look.

I’ve combined 2 different challenges with my card today.  The Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #310.  Here is their sketch.

I also joined in with the Fab Friday #160 color challenge.  Here are their beautiful color combo.

I started with a Highland Heather card front and stamped 2 dragonflies from the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set in Versamark Ink.  I sprinkled them with Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat set them with my Heat Tool.  I adhered the card front to a Highland Heather card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Using my Big Shot, I cut out 2 of the largest dies from the Flourish Thinlits from a piece of Lemon Lime Twist cardstock.  I stamped the sentiment from the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set on a strip of Whisper White cardstock in Bermuda Bay ink.

I adhered a panel of Flirty Flamingo Brights 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Flirty Flamingo mat using Snail.   I adhered 2 pieces of the die cut to the sentiment strip using Snail, then adhered it to the matted DSP using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the matted DSP  to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Clear Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.  I colored one Clear Rhinestone Basic Jewel in using my Dark Bermuda Bay Stampin’ Blend Marker and adhered it to the sentiment strip.

On the inside on a Whisper White panel I stamped the dragonfly from the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set in Highland Heather Ink in the center.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Itty Bitty Birthdays Stamp Set in Bermuda Bay Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Highland Heather card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped a couple of dragonflies from the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set in Highland Heather Ink on the envelope front.  I adhered a piece of Flirty Flamingo Brights 6 X 6 DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for visiting my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try.  Hope everyone has a fantastic weekend.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up You’re Inspiring

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers.  How is everyone doing today?  Are you just about ready for the weekend?

I have an Easter card for you today using the Stampin’ Up You’re Inspiring Stamp Set.  One of my favorite flowers this time of year is the Daffodil.  I have different colors blooming in my gardens.  I actually colored my card in today to look just like the ones in my front garden.  Here’s my card.

I joined in with Just Us Girls #481 Wild Card Week Challenge.  Here is their challenge.

I started with a Crumb Cake card front and ran it through my Big Shot using the Basket Weave Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  I adhered the card front to a Pear Pizzazz card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the larger daffodil image from the You’re Inspiring stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the image in using my Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers for the throat of the daffodil.  I colored the leaves in using my Pear Pizzazz Stampin’ Write Marker.  I adhered the artwork to a Pear Pizzazz mat using Snail.

I wrapped a piece of the Petal Pink/Whisper White 5/8″ Variegated Ribbon around the artwork and tied a bow.  I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the smaller daffodil image from the You’re Inspiring stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink along the bottom of a Whisper White panel.  I colored the daffodils in the same as I did for the card front.  I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set in the center of the Whisper White panel in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Pear Pizzazz card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the larger daffodil image from the You’re Inspiring stamp set on the envelope front and the envelope flap in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored them in the same as I did for the card front.

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

Stampin’ Up Postcard Pals

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  How is everyone’s week going?  We’re halfway through already.

For today’s card I played with one of my favorite sets, Stampin’ Up Postcard Pals Stamp Set.  I just love the little critters in this set, it’s such a fun set.  Here’s my card.

I was also able to join in with the CAS(E) This Sketch challenge #315.  Here is their sketch.

For my card I started with a Wood Textures Designer Series Paper card front and ran it through my Big Shot using the Pinewood Planks Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  It’s very hard to see in the picture, but the wood background has texture to it.  I adhered the card front to a Highland Heather card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I ran a strip of Highland Heather cardstock through my Big Shot using the Subtle Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and adhered it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the Otter image from the Postcard Pals stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the image in using my Balmy Blue, Call Me Clover, Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Highland Heather, Poppy Parade and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the image out using oval from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.  I cut out the scalloped oval in Balmy Blue Cardstock from the Layering Oval Framelits Dies  I adhered the stitched oval to the scalloped oval using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and then adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small piece of Glossy White cardstock I did the Shaving Cream Technique using Balmy Blue, Daffodil Delight and Highland Heather Classic Stampin’ Ink Refills.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Itty Bitty Birthdays Stamp Set in Versamark Ink on the marbled paper.  I sprinkled it with my Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat set it using my Heat Tool.  I cut the sentiment out using the smallest oval from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies and I cut the Balmy Blue scalloped oval from the Layering Oval Framelits Dies.  I adhered the stitched oval to the scalloped oval using Multipurpose Liquid Glue then adhered it to the bottom of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up Life Is Grand Stamp Set in Balmy Blue Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Highland Heather card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the otter image from the Postcard Pals stamp set on the front of the envelope and colored it in using my Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of Wood Textures 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 Half Full Birthday Card

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers and Happy April Fools Day!!.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Did anyone do anything fun?  It was the end of the month, so I had to work.

For today’s card I made a pretty quick and easy card for you using the Stampin’ Up Half Full Stamp Set.  Here’s my card.

I started with an Old Olive card front and ran it through my Big Shot with the Layered Leaves Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.

On a strip of Wood Textures Designer Series Paper I stamped the sentiment from the Half Full stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the grapes and the leaves in with my Blackberry Bliss and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I made it into a banner using the Banner Triple Punch.  I made a smaller banner from a piece of Floral Romance Specialty Designer Series Paper.

I adhered both banners to the Old Olive card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I wrapped a piece of Blackberry Bliss Nature’s Twine around the card front and tied a bow.  I adhered the card front to a Blackberry Bliss card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  To add a little bling, I added a few Clear Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped two wine glasses from the Half Full stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the bottom of a Whisper White panel.  I masked the one wine glass and stamped the wine bottle from the same stamp set next to them.  I colored the wine in the glass in using my Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers. It’s very hard to see, but I added a few Heart Epoxy Droplets above the wine glasses.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the wine glasses from the Half Full stamp set along the bottom of the envelope front and colored them in using my Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a piece of the Floral Romance 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 Painted Seasons Double Time Technique

Good Saturday morning my fellow stampers. I don’t usually do posts on the weekends, but I wanted to show you one last Sale-A-Bration card.  Tomorrow is your last day to order any Sale-A-Bration items.

RUN DON’T WALK TO YOUR COMPUTERS TO PLACE YOUR ORDERS.

Today’s card I used the gorgeous Distinctive Stampin’ Up Painted Seasons Stamp Set and the Stampin’ Up Part Of My Story Stamp Set. I also tried the Double Time Technique for my card.  I am really going to miss this Distinctive set. Here’s my card.

The colors I used were part of The Color Throwdown Challenge #536.

I started by taking 2 panels of Very Vanilla cardstock and put the tiniest amount of Snail in the center to just hold them in place.  I stamped the sentiment from the Part Of My Story stamp set in Soft Suede Ink in the center of the top panel.  I stamped the flower image from the Painted Seasons stamp set randomly around on the cardstock in Blushing Bride Ink.  I stamped the fern image from the same stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink randomly between the flowers.  I stamped the leaf image from the same stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink stamping off once.

I adhered each of the Very Vanilla panels to a Blushing Bride mat using Snail.  I lined up the images and adhered the smaller matted panel to the larger matted panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I then adhered the artwork to a Pear Pizzazz card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the flowers, ferns and leaves from the Painted Seasons stamp set randomly on a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Strong And Beautiful Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink in the center of the Very Vanilla panel.  This stamp set has the most beautiful sentiments and font in it.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Blushing Bride mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Pear Pizzazz card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I stamped the flower, fern and leaf images from the Painted Seasons stamp set randomly on the envelope front and the envelope flap the same as I did for the card front.

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit my blog today.  I hope you liked my Double Time card and will give it a try.  Enjoy your weekend.  Happy Stamping!!

Product List

Stampin’ Up All Adorned

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers.  So how was everyone’s week?  Have we made any plans for the weekend?  This is your LAST weekend to get any Sale-A-Bration items.  I’m really going to miss some of the stamp sets.

For today’s card, I’m finishing out the week as promised, with another Sale-A-Bration stamp set.  I have to admit, I didn’t jump at this set, until I first saw it used and then I had to have it.  It’s the Stampin’ Up All Adorned Stamp Set and I paired it up with the Painted Seasons Designer Series Paper.  Take a look.

I was able to include my card in 2 challenges also.  First is the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #309.  Be sure to stop by their blog to play along and see what everyone has made.  Here’s their sketch for the week.

Next up is Sunday Stamps Easter Hues Color Challenge #201.  They have some gorgeous projects on their blog, be sure to stop by.  Here are their colors.

I started with a Pool Party card base and adhered a panel of Painted Seasons Designer Series Paper (Sale-A-Bration item) to the front using Snail.  I adhered a strip of Highland Heather cardstock using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped the sentiment from the All Adorned stamp set (Sale-A-Bration item) in Highland Heather Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  Using my Big Shot, I cut the sentiment out using the 2nd largest square from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.  Using the Layering Squares Framelits Dies, I cut the Balmy Blue cardstock one size larger than the stitched square and I cut the So Saffron scalloped square one size larger than the Balmy Blue.  I adhered the 3 squares together using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and adhered them to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a small Mint Macaron bow made from the Nature’s Twine and I added a couple Mint Macaron Faceted Dots to the artwork.

On the inside I stamped the corner image from the All Adorned stamp set in the corners of a Whisper White panel with Pool Party Ink.  My Stamparatus really helped with this.  I just lined the cardstock up with the Small Grid Paper for my Stamparatus and turned it and lined it up with the same lines stamping all 4 corners perfectly.  It took me a while to get the hang of the Stamparatus, but once I did, I love it.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Part Of My Story Stamp Set (Sale-A-Bration item) in the center with Highland Heather Ink. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Highland Heather mat using Snail and then adhered it to the inside of the Pool Party card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I was having so much un with my All Adorned stamp set I decided to use another one of the stamps on the envelope front.  It’s 2-steps so I stamped the first step in Highland Heather Ink across the bottom of the envelope front, then I stamped the second step in Mint Macaron Ink.  I adhered a panel of the Painted Seasons 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!!
