Stampin’ Up! Framed Flowers for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday!!  How was everyone’s week?  The weekend is upon us, do you have any plans?  I had a wonderful day at the beach yesterday.  It looked a little iffy when we first got there with the fog and clouds, but it turned out to be an absolutely gorgeous day.  The sun was shining and the water was perfect.  By the afternoon we couldn’t even sit at our blanket the sun got so hot, so we went in the ocean for over an hour.  The waves were awesome, I’m guessing because of the storm we are supposed to get today.  I only came home with a little sunburn (ok, maybe a lot) and blistered feet because of the sand being so darn hot.  The beach is my happy place and now today it’s back to reality.

I have a corner flip fold card for you today.  Here’s my card.

I played along with The Paper Players Challenge #498.  Here is their Theme.

I started by adhering a panel of Flowers For Every Season 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Misty Moonlight card base using Stampin’ Seal.  I then cut my card front using my Paper Trimmer.  I placed the card front bottom edge down, at the 3″ mark on my trimmer and cut from the 2 1/2″ mark up to the 4 7/8″ mark.  I turned my card base a 1/4 turn (so the outside edge was down) and place it at the 3″ mark again on my trimmer.  I cut from the 3″ mark down to the 5/8″ mark.  I pushed the cut piece through from the bottom and flipped it around so the inside was now on the outside.

I stamped the frame image from the Stampin’ Up! Framed For You Cling Stamp Set in Cinnamon Cider Ink on a Cinnamon Cider panel.  I cut the frame out using the largest and 5th from largest squares from my Layering Squares Dies.  I adhered a small panel of Flowers For Every Season  DSP to the flipped corner using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the frame over the DSP using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added Antique Corners from the Antique Corners & Slides Elements to the 4 corners of the frame using Glue Dots.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers Cling Stamp Set in Misty Moonlight Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using my Hippo & Friends Dies.  I adhered a piece of Cinnamon Cider 2020-2022 In-Color 1/4″ Ribbon to the bottom of the card front using a Glue Dot.  I adhered the sentiment over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Just Jade 2020-2022 In-Color Enamel Dots to the sentiment  and the inner liner which shows through to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the leaf images from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Just Jade Ink around the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Cinnamon Cider mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Misty Moonlight card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the leaf images from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Just Jade Ink along the bottom front of the envelope.  I adhered a panel of the Flowers For Every Season 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! Birds and Branches Hello Baby

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  How has everyone’s week started off?  Can you believe June is over already and we have a holiday weekend coming up soon.  These months are a blur to me this year.

I have another baby card for you today using the Birds & Branches Bundle.  This one is for my aunt and uncle for their new Great Grandson.  I made a male and female bird for today’s card.  Did you ever wonder why the male bird is so much more vibrant than the female.  Something is definitely wrong with that.   Here’s my card for today.

Today’s card played along with Fusion Challenge – Relaxed Living.  Here is their inspiration and sketch.

I started by stamping a Balmy Blue card front using the Stampin’ Up! Buffalo Check Cling Stamp in Pacific Point Ink.  I adhered the card front to a Balmy Blue mat using Stampin’ Seal.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the nest image from the Stampin’ Up! Birds & Branches Photopolymer Stamp Set in Crumb Cake Ink.  I stamped the birds eggs image from the Birds & Branches stamp set in Balmy Blue Ink.  I stamped step 1 of one of the bird images from the Birds & Branches stamp set in Daffodil Delight Ink and step 2 of the bird image in Gray Granite Ink.  I cut all the images out using my Birds & More Dies.  On a small panel of Daffodil Delight cardstock I stamped the step 2 image of the bird facing the opposite way in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and cut the image out using my Birds & More Dies.  On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the large and small branch images from the Birds & Branches stamp set in Soft Suede Ink.  I stamped the leaf image from the Birds & Branches stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink.

I cut the Whisper White panel into a banner using my Banner Triple Punch.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! So Sentimental Cling Stamp Set in Balmy Blue Ink on the end of the banner.  I adhered the birds nest to the banner using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the eggs inside the nest using Glue Dots.  I adhered the birds on the nest using Glue Dots.  I adhered the banner to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the card front to a Whisper White card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Moments Cling Stamp Set in Balmy Blue Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the 2 branch images from the Birds & Branches stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the side of the panel.  I stamped the leaf image from the Birds & Branches stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink on the branches.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Balmy Blue mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the 2 branch images from the Birds & Branches stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped the leaf image from the Birds & Branches stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink on the branches.  I stamped the envelope flap using the Buffalo Check stamp in Balmy Blue Ink.

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

Stampin’ Up! Birds and Branches Congratulations

Good Monday morning my stamping friends.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Did anyone do anything fun?  I worked on Saturday and yesterday I worked around the house.  I thought about going for a nice long walk, but when I walked outside and couldn’t breath, I changed my mind.

For today I played along with another new bundle from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.  I just got the Birds & Branches Bundle last week and couldn’t wait to play with it.  My cousin’s son just had a baby boy so I thought I’d send her a congrats on being a  grandma card. Here’s my card for today.

My colors were inspired by the Color Throwdown Challenge #599.  Here are their colors.

My design is from Try Stamping On Tuesday Challenge #463.  Here is their sketch.

I also played along with Watercooler Wednesday Challenge #277.  Here is their theme.

I started by stamping the bird nest image from the Stampin’ Up! Birds & Branches Photopolymer Stamp Set in Crumb Cake Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I stamped the 1st step of the bird image from the Birds & Branches stamp set in Daffodil Delight Ink on the Whisper White panel.  I stamped the 2nd step of the bird image from the Birds & Branches stamp set in Gray Granite Ink on top of the first image.  I stamped the birds eggs image from the Birds & Branches stamp set in Balmy Blue on the Whisper White panel.  I cut the images out using the Birds & More Dies.  I cut a panel of Soft Sea Foam cardstock using the circular die from the Birds & More Dies.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the branch image from the Birds & Branches stamp set in Soft Suede Ink.  I stamped the leaf image from the Birds & Branches stamp set in Just Jade Ink, stamping off once, on the branches.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the back of the die cut Soft Sea Foam panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the Soft Sea Foam panel to a panel of In Good Taste Designer Series Paper using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the birds nest to the die cut panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.   I adhered the bird to the nest using a Glue Dot and Stampin’ Dimensional.  I adhered the birds eggs inside the nest using Glue Dots.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Moments Cling Stamp Set in Balmy Blue Ink on a strip of Whisper White cardstock and fussy cut it using my Paper Snips.  I adhered the sentiment to a strip of Soft Sea Foam cardstock using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I wrapped a piece of Linen Thread around the top of the panel and tied a small bow.  I adhered the card front to a Thick Whisper White card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Pearl Basic Jewels that I colored using my Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blends Markers.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Peaceful Moments stamp set in Balmy Blue Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped step 1 of the bird image from the Birds & Branches stamp set in Daffodil Delight Ink on the bottom of the panel.  I stamped step 2 of the bird image from the Birds & Branches stamp set in Gray Granite Ink on top of the 1st.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Soft Sea Foam 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 decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the branch image from the Birds & Branches stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped the leaf image from the Birds & Branches stamp set in Just Jade Ink, stamping off once, on the branch.  I stamped step 1 of the bird image from the Birds & Branches stamp set in Daffodil Delight Ink above the branch.  I stamped step 2 of the bird image from the Birds & Branches stamp set in Gray Granite Ink on top of the 1st image.  I stamped the birds legs in Gray Granite Ink.  I adhered a panel of In Good Taste 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! Hip Hip Hooray

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends.  How has everyone’s weekend started off?  Does anyone have plans for Father’s Day tomorrow?  My daughter and I are making my husband a big brunch. My niece, her husband and boys are coming over to join us.  We started doing this a couple years ago and he loves it.

If any of you saw my post on Thursday for our blog hop, you saw that I had an oops.  I used the wrong color.  I had made another card to use, but I was told it was ok the colors were close enough.  Here’s the other card I made using the right colors.  My older little nephew graduated from his elementary school and moved to the intermediate school, so I wanted to make him a card too.  He’s 9, so it’s a little harder since he’s too old for cutesy things, but not old enough for grown up things yet.

I played along with Watercooler Wednesday Challenge #276.  Here is their theme.

I started by cutting a panel of Just Jade and Pretty Peacock cardstock using the Best Plaid Builder Dies.  I adhered the Pretty Peacock panel first onto a Pear Pizzazz card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered the Just Jade cut panel on top of the Pretty Peacock panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I wrapped a piece of the Just Jade 1/4″ Ribbon around the panel tied a knot and adhered the card front to a Pear Pizzazz card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut a panel of Whisper White cardstock using the 2nd largest die from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.  I stamped the 2 sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Best Year Cling Stamp Set in Just Jade Ink  on the cut panel.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and added a few Just Jade 2020-2022 In-Color Enamel Dots to the sentiment.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! So Sentimental Cling Stamp Set in Just Jade Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  When you cut the cardstock using the Best Plaid Builder Dies you are left with a lot of squares.  I decorated the inside of the card using these squares adhering them down with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pretty Peacock mat using Stampin’ Seal and then 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 adhered a strip of the Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper 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! Whale Done! for Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends and welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop.  How is everyone doing today?  If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we had a Color Challenge. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects .
Here are the colors we had to work from. 

My little nephew moved up from Kindergarten and I wanted to make him a card.  Here is my card using these colors.  I read the 1st color wrong, so instead of Pretty Peacock I used Pacific Point.  At least I was kind of close, oops.

My design is from Inspire. Create. Challenge #071.  Here is their sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of Whale of a Time 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper to a Whisper White card base using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered a small panel of the Whale of a Time 6 X 6 DSP to a Just Jade mat using Stampin’ Seal.

I embossed a strip of Just Jade cardstock using the Seabed 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to the side of the small matted panel of DSP using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the whale image from the Stampin’ Up! Whale Done Cling Stamp Set in Smoky Slate Ink and the turtle image from the Whale Done stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink.  I punched the whale image out using the Whale Builder Punch and I fussy cut the turtle using my Paper Snips.  I adhered the Whale to the matted DSP using Stampin’ Dimensionals and the turtle using Glue Dots.

I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  On a thin strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Whale Done stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and a Glue Dot.  I added a few Clear Epoxy Droplets from the Frosted & Clear Epoxy Droplets.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Whale Done stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the whale image from the Whale Done stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink, stamping off once, over the sentiment.  I stamped the seaweed and turtle images from the Whale Done stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on the top and bottom of the panel, some in full strength and some stamped off.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pacific Point mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the whale image from the Whale Done stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped the seaweed image from the Whale Done stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of the Whale of a Time 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. 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 Amy’s page. Or you can just click on the names below to go directly to all the blogs! Happy Hopping!!

Stampin’ Up! Rainbow Thoughtful Blooms

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers. How was everyone’s weekend?  Did anyone do anything fun?  It was a nice sunny weekend here for a change.  Saturday was a little windy and chilly, but Sunday felt like a spring day.  It’s suppose to be even warmer here today, 69 I think.  Spring’s on it’s way.

For today’s card I used a FREE stamp set from Sale-A-Bration and a FREE punch from Sale-A- Bration, with qualifying orders.  I also used 4 of the 5 2018-2020 In-Colors which will be retiring in June.  If you are loving any of these colors, grab them while you still can.  I believe this is the most colors I’ve ever used on one card.   Here’s my card.

I played along with Just Add Ink Challenge #495.  Their colors are Add A Rainbow.  I believe I have a rainbow with this card for sure.

I also played along with Watercooler Wednesday Challenge #261.  Here is their theme.

I started by stamping the large flower image from the Stampin’ Up! Thoughtful Blooms Photopolymer Stamp Set, which is a FREE item with a qualifying purchase from Sale-A-Bration, in Poppy Parade, Grapefruit Grove, Pineapple Punch and Gorgeous Grape Inks on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I cut the rainbow of flowers out using my Small Blooms Punch which is another FREE item with a qualifying purchase from Sale-A- Bration.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the large leafy image from the Thoughtful Blooms stamp set in Call Me Clover Ink across the panel.  I stamped the small leaf image from the Thoughtful Blooms stamp set in Call Me Clover Ink randomly around.  I randomly stamped the medium and small flower images from the Thoughtful Blooms stamp set in Blueberry Bushel, Gorgeous Grape, Grapefruit Grove, Pineapple Punch and Poppy Parade Inks around the leafy image.

I stamped the sentiment from the Thoughtful Blooms stamp set in Blueberry Bushel Ink on the bottom right corner of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Blueberry Bushel mat using Snail and then to a Thick Whisper White card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the large punched flowers to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added Blueberry Bushel Rhinestones from the Noble Peacock Rhinestones to the large flower centers.  I added Pineapple Punch Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots to the medium flower centers.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Band Together Cling Stamp Set in Blueberry Bushel Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the large flower image from the Thoughtful Blooms stamp set in Gorgeous Grape and Poppy Parade Inks on either side of the sentiment.  I stamped the greens and leaf image from the Thoughtful Blooms stamp set in Call Me Clover Ink around the flowers.  I stamped the small dot flower image from the Thoughtful Blooms stamp set in Grapefruit Grove and Pineapple Punch Inks on the greens.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Blueberry Bushel mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.   I stamped the large flower image from the Thoughtful Blooms stamp set in Poppy Parade Ink on the bottom front of the envelope.  I stamped the greens and leaves image from the Thoughtful Blooms stamp set around the flower in Call Me Clover Ink.  I stamped the dot flower image from the Thoughtful Blooms stamp set in Gorgeous Grape, Grapefruit Grove and Pineapple Punch Inks on the greens.  I adhered a panel of Poppy Parade Brights 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! Little Ladybug For Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends. Welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by. This week we had a Sketch Challenge. Be sure to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects. I’m continuing with my quick and easy cards for this week.  My card today is for my daughter who was just accepted to the Forensic Chemistry Program at Kean University.  I am so proud of her and I wanted to make a card to let her know and congratulate her.   Here’s what I came up with for the sketch.

Here is our sketch for this week.

My colors were inspired by Inspire. Create Challenge #058.  Here are their colors.

I started by adhering a panel of Cherry Cobbler Regals 6″ X 6″ Designer Series Paper to a Whisper White card base.

I stamped the flower and butterfly image from the Stampin’ Up! Little Ladybug Host Cling Stamp Set In Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a small panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I colored the ladybug image in using my Light Basic Black, Cherry Cobbler and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I colored the leaves and stem of the flower in using my Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I colored the flower in using my Aqua Painter and Blushing Bride Ink.  On a scrap of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the same ladybug image from the Little Ladybug stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. I only colored in the left wing using my Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blend Markers. I fussy cut the wing out using my Paper Snips. I adhered the wing to the artwork using a Stampin’ Dimensional to give a little extra dimension to the ladybug.  I added a little Clear Wink of Stella to the flower center to give a little sparkle.  I adhered the artwork to a panel of Blushing Bride cardstock using Snail.

On a strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Little Ladybug stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I sponged the edges of the strip using my Cherry Cobbler Ink and a Sponge Dauber.  I adhered the sentiment to the bottom of the artwork using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Cherry Cobbler Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the artwork.

On the inside I stamped the flower image from the Little Ladybug stamp set in Blushing Bride Ink, stamping off once, to the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the ladybug image from the Little Ladybug stamp set on the bottom of the panel  in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored it in using my Light Basic Black, Cherry Cobbler and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Strong & Beautiful Cling Stamp Set over the flower image in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Blushing Bride mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Whisper White card base using Snail.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the flower and ladybug images from the Little Ladybug stamp set on the envelope front and colored them in using my Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of Cherry Cobbler Regals 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. Now that you’ve seen my card, take a minute to hop through all our projects today.

Stampin’ Up! Come Sail Away to a New Adventure

Good Monday morning my stamping friends.  How was everyone’s weekend?  I got all my baking done and now I just have to make up all the platters that I give out.  I like to make up all the platters at once so that I’m not pulling containers in and out since there are so many.  The final count was 25 different kinds and 1820 cookies not including the bar cookies.  I have to admit, by Saturday night I was wiped.

For today’s card, my husband asked me to make a card for a co-worker of his that is leaving for a new job.  I decided to bring out some DSP from the Annual Catalog and came up with a really quick card that he loved.  I even let him help design the card, just a little though.  Here’s my card.

I started by adhering a panel of Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper to a Seaside Spray mat using Snail.  I wrapped a piece of Night of Navy/Sahara Sand Bakers Twine around the matted DSP twice and tie a square knot.

I cut the sentiment out of a scrap piece of Seaside Spray cardstock using the Sweet Silhouette Dies.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered the card front to a Sahara Sand card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I adhered another panel of the Come Sail Away DSP to the card base using Multipurpose Liquid glue.  I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Well Said Cling Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the DSP using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I adhered a strip of Come Sail Away 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 Beautiful You, Strong and Beautiful Graduation Card

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  How is everyone doing today?

For today I used one of my all time favorite stamp sets for a graduation card for you.  My niece has graduated earning her Masters Degree and I wanted to send her a special card letting her know how proud I am of her.  I used a few items that will be retiring as of June 3rd for my card.  Take a look.

I’ve played along with a couple challenges today.  First off is the CAS(E) This Sketch challenge #322.  Here is their sketch.

Next I played along with the Paper Craft Crew challenge #337.  Here is their challenge.

I joined in with the Stampin’ Up Only Challenges #223.  Their challenge is ‘Anything Spring’. This includes spring holidays, birthdays, graduations, babies!

I also joined in with the CAS on Friday Challenge #158.  Their challenge is ‘Use Polkadots’.

I started by adhering a panel of the soon to retire Brights 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Basic Black card bae using Snail.  I stamped the dancing woman image from the Stampin’ Up Beautiful You Clear Stamp Set on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I colored her in using my Light Basic Black, Ivory and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the artwork to a panel of Whisper White cardstock to give it a little color on color edge using Snail.  I then adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I cut a tiny square to look like a graduation cap out of Basic Black cardstock.  I took a small piece of Whisper White Bakers Twine and pulled it apart to get very thin strands to make a tassel on the cap, tied it in a knot and adhered it using a Glue Dot. I adhered a Metallic Pearl in the center of the tassel.  I adhered the graduation cap to the top of the woman’s head using a Stampin’ Dimensional.

Using my Big Shot and the soon to retire Celebrate You Thinlits, I cut out the celebrate in Basic Black and Poppy Parade cardstocks.  I adhered the Basic Black on top or the Poppy Parade, so that it had the shadow look, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the sentiment to the top of the artwork using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and thin strips of Stampin’ Dimensionals on the 2 ends.

On the inside I stamped the flowers from the new Stampin’ Up A Little Lace Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in 3 of the corners of a Whisper White panel.  I colored them in using my Granny Apple Green and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends Markers and added a little Rhinestone Basic Jewel in each flower.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Strong & Beautiful Cling Stamp Set in the center of the Whisper White panel in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  Using my Big Shot I cut out the amazing and you from the Celebrate You Thinlits in Poppy Parade cardstock using a piece of the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet behind it.  The Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets are great when you have very thin images to be glued down and don’t want to take a chance of making a mess with other adhesives.  I adhered the 2 sentiments above the stamped sentiment on the Whisper White panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Basic Black card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the flowers from the A Little Lace stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front.  I colored them in using my Granny Apple Green and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a piece of the Brights 6 X 6 DSP to the envelope flap.  I had to use a different pattern of DSP on the flap.  For the 1st time in all the years I’ve been making cards, I ran out of a DSP.  This has never happen to me.  The DSP usually retires before I have a chance to use it up.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try.  The Stampin’ Up Beautiful You Stamp Set and the Stampin’ Up Strong & Beautiful Stamp Set will be carrying over into the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog, but the Celebrate You Thinlits and the Brights 6 X 6 DSP will be retiring as of June 3rd.  The Stampin’ Up A Little Lace Stamp Set will be available June 4th for purchase.  Happy Stamping!!

A few notes about the lists:

  • Due to high demand for retiring stamp sets, these items will have guaranteed availability until May 24; all other products are not guaranteed and are available while supplies last only.
  • Order deadline to get the retiring products:  June 3, 2019; 11:50 PM (MT)

Stampin’ Up! Retirement List Clarification

It looks like every single stamp set from the 2018-19 Annual Catalog is being retired and that isn’t the case, the carryover sets are being transitioned to Cling Mount.

The stamp sets offered in clear-mount or wood-mount in the 2018–2019 annual catalog that are carrying over into the 2019–2020 annual catalog will be offered in clear-mount and/or wood-mount until existing inventory has been depleted or until June 4, 2019 (whichever comes first).

If the inventory is depleted, you will be notified of the automatic switch to cling when placing an order for that stamp set. This means that you may end up purchasing select cling stamp sets (in carryover artwork) before they can be ordered from the catalog!  All carryover rubber stamp sets will be available in cling medium only (with the exception of background stamps in North America) beginning June 4, 2019.

Stampin’ Up At Home With You

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  Hope everyone is having a wonderful week.

For today’s card I used another set that will soon be retiring from the catalog.  It’s the Stampin’ Up At Home With You Stamp Set.  This set will be retiring as of June 3rd.  This is another set that I am sure to miss.  A friend of mine asked me to make her a card for someone who just bought a new home and this set immediately came to mind.  Take a look.

I started with a Sahara Sand card front and using my Simply Scored Scoring Tool I scored it every inch horizontally so that it looked like vinyl siding.  I stamped the door image from the At Home With You stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on a panel of Wood Textures Designer Series Paper (retiring as of June 3rd).  I cut the door out using the At Home Framelits (retiring as of June 3rd) and my Big Shot.  I adhered the door to a piece of Whisper White cardstock using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped the inside of the door with the sentiment from the At Home With You stamp sett in Early Espresso Ink.  I adhered the door to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I stamped the Welcome Mat from the same stamp set on a scrap piece of Sahara Sand cardstock using Early Espresso Ink and cut it out using my Big Shot and the At Home Framelits Dies.  I adhered it under the door using Glue Dots.

I stamped the flower pots and the light from the At Home With You stamp set in Early Espresso Ink and cut them out using the At Home Framelits Dies.  I colored the pieces in using my Berry Burst, Daffodil Delight, Powder Pink and Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Write Markers and my Bronze and Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered them around the door using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the card front to a Sahara Sand card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Well Said Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink on the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the flower pots from the At Home With You stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the bottom of the Whisper White panel.  I colored them in the same as I did on the card front.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Sahara Sand card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the flower pots from the At Home With You stamp set on the envelope front in Early Espresso Ink and colored them in the same as I did on the card front.  I adhered a piece of Wood Textures 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!!
