Stampin’ Up! Easter Friends for The Card Concepts

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. We’re halfway through the week already and on our way to the weekend. I hope you are starting to make some plans. It’s warming up here a little, hopefully to stay this time.

It’s time for another inspiration challenge for The Card Concepts. The inspiration photo is Easter Blessings.  Here is my card that was inspired from the challenge photo.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Easter Friends Cling Stamp Set along with the You’re A Peach Designer Series Paper for my clean and simple card today. The Bunnies and colors were my inspiration from the photo.

I hope you will take a moment to visit The Card Concepts and join us for our challenge #172.  How are you inspired by this photo?

I started by adhering a panel of You’re A Peach DSP to a Balmy Blue card base. I stamped the bunny image from Easter Friends stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper, on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the gras image from the Easter Friends stamp set below the bunny in Pear Pizzazz Ink.

I cut the 3rd largest Scalloped Contours Die from a panel of Balmy Blue cardstock. I adhered the bunny image to the center using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. From a strip of You’re A Peach DSP I cut the eggs using the Birds & More Dies(retiring May 2). I adhered 1 using a Glue Dot and the others using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Balmy Blue cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Easter Friends stamp set in Versamark Ink. I immediately sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I cut the end of the sentiment strip using my Banner Pick A Punch. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Calypso Coral Artistry Blooms Adhesive Backed Sequins to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from Easter Friends stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink on a Basic Whtie panel. I stamped the grass image from Easter Friends stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink along the bottom of the panel. I adhered the eggs cut from the panel of You’re A Peach DSP using the Birds & More Dies along the bottom of the panel using Glue Dots. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Balmy Blue mat and then to the inside of the Balmy Blue card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of You’re A Peach DSP to the envelope front and a panel to the envelope flap.

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

Stampin’ Up! Easter Friends for Fun Fold Friday with Video Tutorial

Good Friday morning my stamping friends, welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Are you looking forward to the weekend? I have off on Saturday and have to work all day on Sunday.

Today’s card I made on my Facebook Live video on Wednesday. If you were able to join me or watched the replay, thank you. If you’d like to watch my video and stamp along, the measurements are below along with the links to my Facebook page and my YouTube channel. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Easter Friends Cling Stamp Set along with the Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper and the Heart & Home Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by adhering a panel of Pansy Petals DSP to a Fresh Freesia card base. I stamped the bunny image from the Easter Friends stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink, stamping off once, on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I fussy cut the bunny using my Paper Snips. I adhered the bunny to the center of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I cut out the smallest 2 dies from the Flowers of Home Dies from a panel of Soft Succulent cardstock. I adhered the 2 stems to the bunny’s hands using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered a few Loose Flower Flourishes to the stems using Glue Dots and Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

For the shadowbox frame I started by adhering a panel of Heart & Home DSP to a panel of Fresh Freesia cardstock. You do not have to adhere the DSP to the cardstock, I just wanted to make sure it was going to be very stable. I scored it on the 5 1/2″ side at 1/2″, 1″, 4 1/2″ & 5″. I cut the center out using the 2nd largest die from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. I folded on the score lines making the 1″ & 4 1/2″ mountain folds and the 1/2″ & 5″ valley folds. I adhered the frame to the card front using Tear & Tape adhesive.

Here is a view from the top. The cardstock helped to make it pop out a bit.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Easter Friends stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink. I cut the sentiment out using my Stitched So Sweetly Dies and adhered it to the bottom of the frame using Glue Dots. I added a few more of the Loose Flower Flourishes to the sentiment.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Easter Friends stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the bunny image from the Easter Friends stamp set to the side of the sentiment in Smoky Slate Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper. I stamped the grass image below the bunny in Pear Pizzazz Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Fresh Freesia mat and then to the inside of the Fresh Freesia card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the bunny image from the Easter Friends stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink on the envelope front stamping off once. I stamped the grass image in Pear Pizzazz Ink below the bunny. I adhered a panel of Pansy Petals 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. I hope you will CASE this card and please feel free to post it in the comments of my Facebook page under my post. I’d love to see your take on the card. The list of measurements are below if you’d like to stamp along while watching the video. You can watch my video on my Facebook page Here.

Stampin’ Up! Easter Friends for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers. Welcome to Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop. It’s the 2nd Tuesday of the month so that means Blog Hop Day!! If you are starting with me, be sure to hop around to see everyone’s amazing projects. If you’ve hopped over from Akiko
Sudano’s blog, welcome to my blog and thank you for stopping by. The theme this month is “Celebrate Spring”.  We can interpret this however we want.  Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Easter Friends Cling Stamp Set along with the Flowering Fields Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by adhering a panel of the Flowering Fields DSP to a So Saffron card base. I adhered a smaller panel of the Flowering Fields DSP to a So Saffron mat and adhered it in the center of the card front.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the duck image from the Easter Friends stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the left and right sides of the panel. Along the bottom of the panel, I stamped the grass image from the Easter Friends stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink. On a small panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the duck image from the Easter Friends stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image using my Pumpkin Pie and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers. I fussy cut the image using my Paper Snips. I adhered the Basic White panel to a So Saffron mat and then to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the fussy cut duck in the center of the 2 ducks using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of So Saffron cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Easter Friends stamp set in Versamark Ink. I immediately sprinkled it with Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I fussy cut the sentiment using my Paper Snips and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Iridescent Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Easter Friends stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the duck image from the Easter Friends stamp set on the bottom of the panel and colored it using my Pumpkin Pie and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the grass image from the Easter Friends stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a So Saffron mat and then to the So Saffron card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the duck image from the Easter Friends on the envelope front and colored it the same as I did for the card. I stamped the grass image from the Easter Friends stamp set below the duck image. I adhered a panel of Flowering Fields DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Beauty Peek-A-Boo Card

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. We’re halfway through the week and heading towards the weekend.

It’s time for another inspiration challenge for The Card Concept. For the next 2 weeks we have a Celebrate Easter challenge. Here is my card that was inspired from the challenge photo.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Beauty Cling Stamp Set . I was inspired by the colors in the photo along with the little bunnies on the bottom for my clean and layered card today.

I hope you will take a moment to visit The Card Concept and join us this week to play along with our challenge #152. How are you inspired by this photo?

I started by adhering a panel of Peony Garden Designer Series Paper to a Just Jade card base using Stampin’ Seal. I placed a Petal Pink card front on the card base and using my Layering Circle Dies I ran it through my Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine. I cut another panel of Petal Pink cardstock using my Layering Circle Dies and made a scalloped frame for the card front.

I embossed the card front using the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the scalloped frame on the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! A Wish For Everything Cling Stamp Set in Gray Granite Ink and cut it out using my Stitched So Sweetly Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered the card front to the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I made a bow using the Just Jade Gingham Ribbon from the Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack and adhered it the the scalloped frame using Glue Dots. I added a few Just Jade 2020-2022 In-Color Enamel Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the bunny image from the Nature’s Beauty stamp set in Gray Granite Ink making sure it would be seen through the circle on the card front. I stamped the grass image from the Nature’s Beauty stamp set around the bunny in Just Jade Ink, some full strength and some stamped off. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Greetings Cling Stamp Set in Gray Granite Ink towards the top of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Gray Granite mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Just Jade card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the bunny image from the Nature’s Beauty stamp set in Gray Granite Ink on the envelope front. I stamped the grass image around the bunny in Just Jade Ink. I adhered a panel of the Peony Garden 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! Arrange A Wreath for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends and welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. I hope everyone is doing well today. If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we have a Theme Challenge. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects. I used the Stampin’ Up! Arrange A Wreath Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Greetings Cling Stamp Set for my card. Here is my card using this weeks theme.

I played along with the Tic Tac Toe Challenge #105. I went across the middle

I also played along with As You See It Challenge #246.

Here is our theme this week.

I started by embossing a Just Jade card front using the Brick and Mortar 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the embossed panel to a Basic White mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and then to the front of a Soft Sea Foam card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Using the Wreath Builder Dies, I cut one of the wreaths out of a panel of Soft Sea Foam cardstock and one from a panel of Shaded Spruce cardstock. I adhered the 2 wreaths together using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On a strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set in Just Jade Ink. I adhered the sentiment to the back of the wreath using Glue Dots. I adhered the wreath to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the egg image from the Arrange A Wreath stamp set in Balmy Blue, Highland Heather, Petal Pink, Pool Party and So Saffron Inks. I cut all the eggs out using the Wreath Builder Dies. I adhered the eggs to the wreath using Glue Dots. I tied a bow using the Just Jade Gingham Ribbon from the Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack and adhered it to the wreath using Glue dots.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! A Wish For Everything Cling Stamp Set in Just Jade Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the egg image from the Arrange A Wreath stamp set along the bottom of the panel in Petal Pink, Highland Heather and Pool Party Inks. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Just Jade mat using Stampn’ Seal and then to the inside of the Soft Sea Foam card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the egg image from the Arrange A Wreath stamp set in Balmy Blue, Highland Heather and Pool Party Inks across the bottom front of the envelope. I adhered a panel of Soft Sea Foam Subtle 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper 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! Timeless Tulips CAS Easter Card

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends. How has everyone’s week started off? I went from one job to the other yesterday. The dog bakery is a little short staffed and we’re running out of time to get all the Easter treats out. So I went in yesterday for a few hours and I told them I’d help out and come in today. I’m not sure about tomorrow yet.

For today I have a simple stamping card for you. This is a perfect card for a beginner stamper that doesn’t have a lot of product. I used a stamp set, some ink and paper. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips Photopolymer Stamp Set for my card. Nothing screams spring and Easter like some tulips.

I started by stamping the stems and leaves images from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Garden Green Ink on a panel of Fine Art Floral Designer Series Paper. I stamped the tulip images from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Poppy Parade Ink on the stems.

I adhered the card front to a Poppy Parade mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the matted panel to a Petal Pink card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Timeless Tulips stamp set and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Seal.

On the inside I stamped a single tulip in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the stems and leaves from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Garden Green Ink, stamping off once. I stamped the tulip image from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Poppy Parade Ink, stamping off once. I stamped the sentiment from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Garden Green Ink over the tulip stem. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Poppy Parade mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Petal Pink card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the tulip images from the Timeless Tulips stamp set on the envelope front the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of Fine Art Floral DSP to the envelope flap.

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

Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Beauty CAS Easter Card

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend? It was beautiful here. Unfortunately I was inside both days working. Luckily it’s still light out when I get out of work so I was able to enjoy some of the beautiful sunshine.

I have a Clean and Simple card for you today using the Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Beauty Cling Stamp Set and the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips Photopolymer Stamp Set. Here’s my card for today.

My design is from the Fab Friday Challenge #209.

I also played along with The Paper Players Challenge #533.

I started by embossing a Basic White card front using the Stitched With Whimsy Dies. I adhered the card front to a Basic White card base using Stampin’ Seal.

On a small panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the bunny image from the Nature’s Beauty stamp set in Gray Granite Ink. I stamped the grass image from the Nature’s Beauty stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink, some in full strength and some stamped off. I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a thin strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Gray Granite Ink. I adhered the sentiment to a strip of Pear Pizzazz cardstock using a Glue Dot and adhered it to the artwork using Glue Dots.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Timeless Tulips in Gray Granite Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the bunny image from the Nature’s Beauty stamp set in Gray Granite Ink on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the grass image from the Nature’s Beauty stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink, some full strength and some stamped off. I used the Stitched With Whimsy Dies and embossed the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Pear Pizzazz mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Basic White card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the bunny and grass images from the Nature’s Garden stamp set on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the Neutrals 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to the envelope flap.

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

Stampin’ Up! Hydrangea Haven Easter

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone’s weekend? We’re having a beautiful spring weekend here.

I have an Easter card for you today using the Floral Gallery Dies, the Stampin’ Up! Hydrangea Haven Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips Photopolymer Stamp Set. Here is my card for today.

My design is from Try Stampin’ On Tuesday Challenge #497.

I started by adhering a panel of the Hydrangea Hill Designer Series Paper to a Highland Heather card base using Stampin’ Seal.

I embossed a panel of Basic White cardstock and 2 strips of Gorgeous Grape cardstock using the Meadow Moments Embossing Folder. I cut the sentiment out of a panel of Gorgeous Grape cardstock using the Floral Gallery Dies. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Gorgeous Grape mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the sentiment to the Basic White panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the 2 strips of Gorgeous Grape cardstock to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I made a small bow using the Gorgeous Grape 3/8″ Sheer Ribbon and adhered it to the sentiment using Glue Dots.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Gorgeous Grape Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the small flower image from the Hydrangea Haven stamp set in Gorgeous Grape Ink in the 2 corners of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Gorgeous Grape mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Highland Heather card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the small flower image from the Hydrangea Haven stamp set across the bottom of the envelope front in Gorgeous Grape Ink. I adhered a panel of the Hydrangea Hill 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! Forever Blossoms for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends and welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. I hope everyone is doing well today. If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we have a Sketch Challenge. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects. Here is my card using this weeks sketch.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Forever Blossoms Cling Stamp Set for my Spotlight Technique card today. Here is our sketch for this week.

I started by stamping just the top part of the largest floral die from the Forever Blossoms stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink on a Basic White card front twice.

Using my Layering Oval Dies I cut the center of the panel out. I colored just the flowers and leaves using my Mint Macaron and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers on the oval cut out. I adhered the card front to a Sahara Sand mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the oval back to the center of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the card front to a Petal Pink card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped part of the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips Photopolymer Stamp Set in Sahara Sand Ink. I adhered the strip to the card front using a Stampin’ Dimensional and Glue Dot. I added a few Elegant Faceted Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the bottom of the sentiment from the Timeless Tulips stamp set I used for the card front in Sahara Sand Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the floral image from the Forever Blossoms stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink on the side of the panel and colored it in using my Mint Macaron and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Sahara Sand mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Petal Pink card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the floral image from the Forever Blossoms stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink on the envelope front and colored it in using my Mint Macaron and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of Peony Garden Designer Series Paper 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.
