Stampin’ Up! Hydrangea Haven Tower Easter Card

Good Easter Sunday morning my stamping friends. Happy Easter!!! Hope you all have a wonderful day with family, friends or maybe just your fur babies. I’ll be spending part of the day with my family. We are also celebrating my nieces 40th birthday today, so we have a double celebration.

I have another version of my tower card for today. I thought it was appropriate to post an Easter card. For details and instructions, visit my blog from Friday April 2nd Here. The measurements are all the same I just used different colors.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Hydrangea Haven Bundle for this card.

I also used the Hydrangea Hill Designer Series Paper for this card.

My card base is Old Olive

The center stitched squares from the Stitched Shapes Dies are Highland Heather and Purple Posy

I used Highland Heather, Gorgeous Grape and Old Olive Inks. I also used Highland Heather, Old Olive and Purple Posy Stampin’ Blends Markers along with some Clear Wink of Stella

I added a few Pastel Pearls to the card front

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you all have a wonderful Easter.

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.

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.

Stampin’ Up! Perennial Easter Promise

Good Sunday morning and Happy Easter to all my stamping friends.  How is everyone doing this morning?

I have another Easter card for you today that my son’s girlfriend asked me to make for her.  It seemed appropriate for today.  Here’s today’s card.

My card was inspired by Global Design Project Theme Challenge #235.  Here is their theme.

I also played along with Watercooler Wednesday Challenge #266. Here is their challenge.

I started by cutting the edge of a Calypso Coral card front mat using the new Ornate Borders Dies.

On a panel of Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Easter Promise Cling Stamp Set in Versamark Ink.  I immediately sprinkled it with my White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I adhered the DSP to the die cut mat using Snail and then to a Whisper White card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the crocus image from the Easter Promise stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the image in using my Light Calypso Coral, Granny Apple Green and Highland Heather Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the image out using my Stitched So Sweetly Dies.  I wrapped a piece of Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon around the artwork and tied a bow.  I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Pearl Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Easter Promise stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the cross image from the Easter Promise stamp set in Highland Heather Ink above the sentiment.  I colored the leaves on the vine with my Light Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends Marker.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Calypso Coral mat using Snail 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 crocus image from the Easter Promise stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the bottom front of the envelope and colored it in using my Light Calypso Coral, Granny Apple Green and Highland Heather Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of the Perennial Essence 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 all have a wonderful Easter, despite the circumstances.  Enjoy the rest of your weekend and I’ll see you tomorrow.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips Easter

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends.  How has everyone’s weekend started off?  Yesterday was such a strange day weather wise here.  It was sunny, then it snowed, sunny again, then the hail came down strong, sunny again, then rain.  All this with heavy gusts of wind all day.  It did not feel like spring at all.  I was able to get one of our traditional Easter dishes made and my niece and nephew stopped by for some.  I handed it out the door to them, keeping a distance.  I can’t wait till this Social Distancing is over, but until then I do what I have to do.

I was all done with Easter cards, mailed all that I had out on Tuesday.  My son’s girlfriend asked me Thursday night if I could make her 3 Easter cards, of course I couldn’t say no.  Here’s one of the cards I made for her.

My colors were inspired by the Color Throwdown Challenge #588.  Here are their colors.

I also played along with Just Add Ink Challenge #500.

I joined in with Inspire. Create Challenge #066.  Here is their Theme.

I started by adhering a panel of the Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper to a Daffodil Delight mat using Snail.  I adhered the matted panel to a Granny Apple Green card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the stem image from the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips Photopolymer Stamp Set in Granny Apple Green Ink 3 times.  I stamped the leaf image from the Timeless Tulips stamp set on either side of the stems in Granny Apple Green Ink.  I stamped the largest tulip image from the Timeless Tulips stamp set 3 times on the Whisper White panel.  I stamped the 1st tulip in Daffodil Delight Ink and sponged the edge using my Sponge Dauber with Melon Mambo Ink.  The 2nd tulip I stamped in Melon Mambo Ink, stamped it off once, then sponged the edge with my Sponge Dauber in Melon Mambo Ink.  The last tulip I stamped in Pumpkin Pie Ink and sponged the edge in Melon Mambo Ink using my Sponge Dauber.  I cut all the tulips out using my Tulip Builder Punch and cut the stem images out using my Stitched Nested Labels Dies.

I adhered the tulips to the stamped stem images using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I cut the sentiment out in Daffodil Delight cardstock using my Word Wishes Dies and adhered it on the artwork using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Melon Mambo Glitter Enamel Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! A Wish For Everything Cling Stamp Set in Granny Apple Green Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the stem image from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink 3 times on the bottom of the panel.  I stamped the leaf image from the Timeless Tulips stamp set twice on the stems in Granny Apple Green Ink.  I stamped the medium tulip image from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo and Pumpkin Pie Inks on the stems.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Daffodil Delight mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Granny Apple Green card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the stem image from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink 3 times on the bottom front of the envelope.  I stamped the medium tulip image from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo and Pumpkin Pie Inks on the stem images.  I adhered a panel of Perennial Essence 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! Timeless Tulips Easter

Good Sunday morning my fellow stampers.  Hope you are having a great weekend.  It’s been raining here all weekend, so it kind of makes staying home easy.  I did have to work for a few hours yesterday and everyone that came to the store was very understanding and patient.

For today’s card I made you an Easter card using the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips Bundle and some pretty pastel colors.  Here’s my card for today.

My sketch is from Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #428.  Here is their sketch.

I played along with Just Add Ink Theme Challenge #498.  Here is their challenge. My “E” is Easter.

I was inspired by “Just Us Girls” Photo Challenge #529.  Here is their photo. Nothing says spring more that a pasture of tulips.

I started by adhering a panel of the Pleased As Punch Designer Series Paper to a Mint Macaron card base using Snail.

I cut a panel of Whisper White cardstock using the largest circle from the Layering Circles Dies.  I stamped the stem image from the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips Photopolymer Stamp Set 3 times in Mint Macaron Ink.  Using the largest scallop circle die from the Layering Circles Dies, I cut a panel of Mint Macaron cardstock.  I adhered the Whisper White circle to the scalloped circle using Snail.  I cut a small portion of the circle off to make a straight edge.  On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the largest tulip image from the Timeless Tulips stamp set 3 times in So Saffron Ink which I edged in Petal Pink Ink using my Sponge Dauber.  I punched all 3 tulips out using my Tulip Builder Punch.  I adhered the 2 end tulips to the circle using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and the center tulip using Glue Dots.  I adhered the artwork to the edge of the DSP on the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a small bow, which I made from the Mint Macaron 1/8″ Sheer Linen Ribbon, using a Glue Dot.

On a strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Mint macaron Ink.  I adhered the sentiment to a Mint Macaron mat using Snail and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the artwork.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! A Wish For Everything Cling Stamp Set in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the stem image from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink on the bottom of the panel.  I stamped the leaf image from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink a couple times on the stems.  I stamped the medium tulip image from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in So Saffron Ink and edged it using my Sponge Dauber in Petal Pink Ink on the stems.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Petal Pink mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Mint Macaron card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the front of the envelope with the stem and leaf images from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink 3 times.  I stamped the medium tulip image from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in So Saffron Ink edged with Petal Pink Ink, using my Sponge Dauber, 3 times on the stem images.  I adhered a panel of the Pleased As Punch 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, the Pleased as Punch Designer Series Paper which is part of the Coordination Products, will only be available until March 31st.  If you are liking this DSP, don’t wait to order it.  I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend and are making the best of the social distancing and quarantined situations by doing some fun crafting.   Happy Stamping!!

APRIL 2020 PAPER PUMPKIN:  MY WONDERFUL FAMILY

SUBSCRIBE MARCH 11-APRIL 10

At Paper Pumpkin, we believe in making a difference—especially when it comes to helping you build relationships through papercrafting. For April, we created a fun, family appreciation themed card kit that would make it easy for you to share your hearts with those you love most: mom, dad, daughter, son, sister, and brother. April’s kit even includes Mother’s Day and Father’s Day sentiments, giving you the perfect way to show your appreciation for beloved parents on their special days with a beautiful, handmade card.
One more thing about this “fam-tastic” kit: The Paper Pumpkin team knows that everyone’s clan is unique. With that in mind, we provided sentiments that would include anyone in your life who feels like family; for instance, “brothers” and “sisters” who have helped you along the journey of life.
