Stampin’ Up! Forever Blossoms Happy Easter

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  We’re halfway through the week already.  Hope you are having a productive week.

I have another card from our card class last week that we made.  My card was CASEd from my team leader Amy Koenders.  You can see her card here.  I thought I would change it by using a different color.  Here’s my card.

I started by stamping the large floral image from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Blossoms Cling Stamp Set in Versamark Ink on a panel of Purple Posy cardstock.  I immediately sprinkled it with my White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  Using my Purple Posy and Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Write Markers I added a little color inside the embossed flowers.  I adhered the Purple Posy panel to a Gorgeous Grape mat using Snail.

I adhered a panel of the New Sale-A-Bration item, So Very Vellum Specialty Designer Series Paper which is available free with a qualifying purchase, to a Purple Posy card base using Snail.  I adhered the matted artwork to the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut the sentiment out of a panel of Soft Sea Foam cardstock using my Word Wishes Dies.  I brushed the sentiment using Clear Wink of Stella to give is a little shimmer.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I added a few Pearl Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! A Wish For Everything Cling Stamp Set in Gorgeous Grape Ink.  Using my Purple Posy and Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Write Markers, I colored the large floral image from the Forever Blossoms stamp set and stamped it on the top of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Gorgeous Grape mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Purple Posy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the large floral image from the Forever Blossoms stamp set, which I colored using my Purple Posy and Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Write Markers, on the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of the 2019-2021 In-Colors 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! Forever Blossoms Easter for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew 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 and you know what that means, Blog Hop Day!! If you are starting with me, be sure to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects. If you’ve hopped over from Karen Finkle’s blog, welcome to my blog and thank you for stopping by. The theme this month is “Spring”. We can interpret this any way that we’d like.

For my card today I combined 2 stamp sets.  One from the 2020 January-June Mini Catalog and the other from the Annual Catalog along with a new Sale-A-Bration item. Here’s my card.

I started by adhering a panel of Soft Sea Foam So Very Vellum Specialty Designer Series Paper to a Soft Sea Foam card base using Snail.  I put the Snail under my artwork so that you couldn’t see the lines.  Using the Cherry Blossoms Dies, I cut all the flowers from a panel of Petal Pink cardstock.  I cut all the leaves from a panel of Soft Sea Foam cardstock.  I cut the branch and flower centers from a panel of Soft Suede cardstock.  I sponged the edges of all the flowers using my Stamping Sponges and Petal Pink Ink.  I sponged all the leaves using my Stamping Sponges and Soft Sea Foam Ink.  I adhered all the leaves to the back of the flowers using Snail.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Easter Promise Cling Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using my Stitched So Sweetly Dies making sure the sentiment was towards the bottom right of the die.

I arranged the branch and the flowers on the top left corner of the die cut sentiment.  I adhered them, once I had them where I wanted them, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, Stampin’ Dimensionals and Glue Dots.  I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Easter Promise stamp set in Soft Suede Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the large floral branch image from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Blossoms Cling Stamp Set, which I colored using my Petal Pink and Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Write Markers, on the top of the panel.  I stamped 2 small flower images from the Forever Blossoms stamp set in Petal Pink Ink on the bottom of the panel and stamped a double leaf image from the Forever Blossoms stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Soft Suede mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Soft Sea Foam card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the large floral branch image from the Forever Blossoms stamp set, which I colored using my Petal Pink and Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Write Markers, on the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of Parisian Blossoms Specialty Designer Series Paper to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Easter Promise for Happy Inkin Thursday Blog Hop

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

Here’s what I came up with for these colors.

I started by stamping the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Easter Promise Cling Stamp Set in Versamark Ink on the bottom right of a panel of Lily Impressions Designer Series Paper (which is a Sale-A-Bration item).  I immediately sprinkled it with my Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I adhered the Lily Impressions DSP to a Basic Black mat using Snail and then to a Lovely Lipstick card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut 2 strips of cardstock, one in Bermuda Bay and the other in Granny Apple Green, into banners using the Banner Triple Punch.  I adhered the banners to the left side of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock, I stamped the large flower image from the Easter Promise stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the image in using my Granny Apple Green and Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the image out using the 2nd largest square from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  Using the Layering Squares Dies, I cut the scallop square that was slightly larger that the stitched square in Basic Black cardstock.  I adhered the artwork to the Basic Black scalloped mat using Snail and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Granny Apple Green Glitter Enamel Dots 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 small flower image from the Easter Promise stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the bottom of the panel.  I colored the image in using my Granny Apple Green and Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Basic Black mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Lovely Lipstick 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 Easter Promise stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the front of the envelope.  I colored the image in using my Granny Apple Green and Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of the Lily Impressions DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Winds of Change Easter Card

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends.  How has everyone’s week started off.  It’s starting to feel a lot like spring here.  This is one of the mildest winters I remember in a long time.  I blame it on my Team Leader moving to NJ from GA.  I think she brought the mild winter with her.

Today’s card is another one we are doing tonight at our card class.  My design was inspired by one of my team members Akiko Sudano.  You can see her card here. Here is my take on her card.

I started by embossing a panel of Petal Pink cardstock using the Scripty 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the embossed panel to a Soft Suede mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the matted panel to a Petal Pink card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the tulip image from the Stampin’ Up! Winds of Change Cling Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink.  I colored the image in using my Mint Macaron and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the image out using my Painted Labels Dies.  I adhered the artwork to the Petal Pink card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a thin strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips Photopolymer Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink.  I made the strip into a banner using my Paper Snips.  I adhered the sentiment to a  strip of Soft Suede cardstock, which I made into a banner using my Paper Snips, using Snail.  I adhered the matted banner to the card front using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Soft Suede Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the tulip image from the Winds of Change stamp set in Petal Pink Ink over the sentiment.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Soft Suede mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Petal Pink card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the tulip image from the Winds of Change stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the envelope front.  I colored the image in using my Mint Macaron and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a Petal Pink panel of the Subtle 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! Inspiring Iris

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s weekend?  I had to work both days, but I have today off, YAY!!  Today is my fur babies birthday, she turned 12.  I thought I’d share a couple pictures of her with you.  She was my mother’s day gift 12 years ago, and the best gift I ever received.  Her name is Jasmine. The 1st one is the day I got her, she was about 10 weeks old and the last one is recent.  She’s gotten a little grey, but still acts like a puppy at times.  She is definitely a mommy’s girl.  Thanks for letting me share.

Onto today’s card.  Tomorrow night we’re having our monthly card class.  We’re planning on making 4 Easter/Spring cards.  Here is one of the cards we’re going to make.

The colors in my card were inspired by Just Add Ink Challenge #494.  Here are their color.  I absolutely love these colors together, so soft and springy.

I also played along with Watercooler Wednesday Challenge #260.  Here is their theme.

I started by embossing a panel of Soft Sea Foam cardstock using the Stone 3D Embossing Folder which you can earn as a bundle with a qualifying order from Sale-A-Bration.   This embossing folder is one I’m really hoping carries over to the next Annual Catalog, it’s one of my favorites.  I took my Soft Sea Foam stamp pad and gently wiped it across the embossed panel shading the raised parts.  I then took my Smoky Slate stamp pad and gently wiped that across the panel.  I adhered the embossed panel to a Smoky Slate mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and adhered it to a Soft Sea Foam card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the large outline flower image from the Stampin’ Up! Inspiring Iris Photopolymer Stamp Set in Smoky Slate Ink.  I stamped the flower fill image from the Inspiring Iris stamp set in Petal Pink Ink over the outlined image.  I stamped the leaf fill image from the Inspiring Iris stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink over the outlined image.  I was able to get everything lined up so perfectly using my Stamparatus.  I cut the image out using my Stitched Rectangle Dies.  I cut a small panel of Smoky Slate cardstock using the Stitched So Sweetly Dies that was the same size as my rectangle.  I adhered the artwork to the Smoky Slate mat on an angle using Glue Dots and adhered it to my card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a small piece of Petal Pink 1/4″ Metallic Edge Ribbon which I tied in a knot to the artwork using a Glue Dot.  I added a few Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the artwork.

On a thin strip of Petal Pink cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Greetings Cling Stamp Set in Smoky Slate Ink.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! A Wish For Everything Cling Stamp Set in Smoky Slate Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the flower fill image from the Inspiring Iris stamp set in Petal Pink Ink over the sentiment.  I stamped the leaf fill image from the Inspiring Iris stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink below the flower image.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Smoky Slate mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Soft Sea Foam card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the outline flower image from the Inspiring Iris stamp set on the envelope front in Smoky Slate Ink.  I stamped the flower fill image from the Inspiring Iris stamp set in Petal Pink Ink over the outlined image.  I stamped the leaf fill image from the Inspiring Iris stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink over the outlined image.  I adhered a Soft Sea Foam panel of Subtle 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! Happy Easter, Happy Spring Sending Flowers

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s weekend?  We had a beautiful sunny weekend here, nice change from all the rain.

For today’s card I played with one of the Coordination items available now.  Here’s my card.

My design is from Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #423.  Here is their sketch.

My colors were inspired by the Color Throwdown Challenge #581.  Here are their colors.

I started by adhering a panel of Smoky Slate Neutrals 6″ X 6″ Designer Series Paper to a Smoky Slate card base using Snail.

I cut 2 of the Coordination Sending Flowers Dies, one from Granny Apple Green cardstock and one from Whisper White cardstock.  I cut 2 each of the flowers from the Sending Flowers Dies in Gorgeous Grape and Melon Mambo cardstock.  I adhered the flowers to the large dies using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I colored the stems on the Whisper White one using my Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends Markers. With the Whisper White die cut, I trimmed off the top and sides using my Paper Snips.  I adhered the Granny Apple Green die cut on top of the Whisper White one, off centering it so that you can see all the flowers, using Snail along the bottom.  I trimmed off the excess using my Paper Snips.

I adhered the die cut to my card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered a thin strip of Melon Mambo and Gorgeous Grape below the flowers.  I stamped the top portion only of the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips Photopolymer Stamp Set in Smoky Slate Ink on a thin strip of Whisper White cardstock.  I adhered the Whisper White strip under the Gorgeous Grape strip using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Glitter Enamel Dots to the strips.

On the inside I stamped the bottom portion of the sentiment from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the stems and leave from the Timeless Tulip stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink on both sides of the Whisper White panel.  I stamped the smallest tulip image from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Gorgeous Grape and Melon Mambo Inks on the stems.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Granny Apple Green mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Smoky Slate card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the stems and leave from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped the smallest tulip image from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Gorgeous Grape and Melon Mambo Ink on the stems.  I adhered a panel of the Smoky Slate Neutrals 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 Hold On To Hope Easter Card

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  How is your week going?  Was everyone able to hop around our Blog Hop yesterday?  There were some pretty amazing projects there.

For today’s card I made one last Easter card.  I really need to get these in the mail.  I used the Stampin’ Up Hold On To Hope Stamp Set and the Cross Of Hope Framelit Dies.  Take a look.

I started by adhereing a panel of the Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper to a Fresh Fig mat using Snail.  –  Just a little side note.  The annual catalog will be coming to an end the beginning of June.  The 2017-2019 In-Colors will be leaving.  These include Berry Burst, Fresh Fig, Lemon Lime Twist, Powder Pink and Tranquil Tide.  If you are wanting any of these colors in the cardstock, inks, Stampin’ write markers or ink refills get them fast.  These are the first items to usually sell out.

I adhered the matted DSP to a Sahara Sand card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Using my Big Shot, I cut a solid cross from the Cross Of Hope Framelits Dies out of Wood Textures Designer Series Paper.  I then cut the detailed cross from the same die set out of the Champagne Foil Sheet.  I adhered the detailed cross to the solid cross using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the cross to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Hold On To Hope stamp set in Fresh Fig Ink.  I cut the banner out  using my Cross of Hope Framelit Dies.  I adhered the banner over the cross using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the solid cross from the Hold On To Hope stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink stamping off once in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the foliage from the same stamp set around the corners in Tranquil Tide Ink.  I stamped the butterfly by the cross in Fresh Fig Ink stamping off once.  I stamped the sentiment from the  Stampin’ Up Itty Bitty Greetings Stamp Set in Fresh Fig Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Fresh Fig mat using Snail and then 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 foliage from the Hold On To Hope stamp set in Tranquil Tide Ink on the envelope front.  I adhered a piece 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 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 Hold On To Hope

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers.  How is your week going?   Today’s our first full day of spring.  I’ve got a lot of crocus and daffodils blooming at my house, so that’s a sure sign of warmer weather coming.

For today’s card I made another quick and easy card for you using the Painted Seasons Bundle which is a FREE Sale-A-Bration item with a $100 order.  Only 10 days left to get your Sale-A-Bration items!!   Here’s my card.

I started with a Whisper White card front and adhered it to a Petal Pink mat and then to a Poppy Parade mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I wrapped a piece of the beautiful Petal Pink/Whisper White 5/8″ Variegated Ribbon around it and tied a knot.  I adhered the matted card front to a Thick Whisper White card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I took a piece of the gorgeous Painted Seasons Designer Series Paper and adhered it to a Petal Pink mat and then to a Poppy Parade mat using Snail.  I adhered the matted DSP to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the ‘God Is Love’ sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Hold On To Hope Stamp Set in Poppy Parade Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using my Big Shot and the Cross Of Hope Framelits Dies.  I adhered the sentiment to the center of the DSP using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the flower image from the Stampin’ Up Painted Seasons Stamp Set in Petal Pink Ink on the corners of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the leaf image from the same stamp set in Call Me Clover Ink by the flowers and I stamped the center of the flowers in Early Espresso Ink.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up You’re Inspiring Stamp Set in Poppy Parade Ink in the center of the Whisper White panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel 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 flower image from the Painted Seasons stamp set in Petal Pink Ink on the envelope front.  I adhered a piece of Painted Seasons DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try.  We made this card at my last workshop and everyone was able to put it together really quick.

Don’t forget Sale-A-Bration is only here for another 10 days.  So don’t wait any longer if there is something you’ve had your eye on.  Get it while it’s still available because after the 31st Sale-A-Bration items will be gone for good.  

Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up All That You Are for Sunday Stamps

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  How has your week started off?  Spring officially starts tomorrow, now we just need the temperatures to go with it.

For today’s card I used the Stampin’ Up All That You Are Stamp Set.  This is another beautiful set that is great for coloring with your favorite coloring instrument. I decided to use a few of the soon to retire colors for my card.   Here’s my card.

My design was inspired by Sunday Stamps Sketch Challenge #200.  Be sure to stop by and play along with their challenge.  Here is their sketch.

I started with a Powder Pink card front and ran it through my Big Shot using the Pinewood Planks Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  I adhered the card front to a Sahara Sand card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of the Floral Romance Specialty Designer Series Paper I stamped the floral image from the All That You Are stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the leaves of the image in using my Daffodil Delight, Mossy Meadow and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I colored the flowers in using my Aqua Painter, filled with alcohol, and my Berry Burst, Fresh Fig and Powder Pink Inks.  I adhered the artwork to a Fresh Fig mat using Snail.  I added some Rose Metallic Thread to the back of the matted artwork then adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the ‘God Is Love’ sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Hold On To Hope Stamp Set in Fresh Fig Ink on a scrap piece of Powder Pink cardstock and cut it out using my Big Shot and the Cross Of Hope Framelits Dies.  I adhered the banner to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and a Glue Dot.  I added a few Pearl Basic Jewels to the artwork.

On the inside I stamped the floral image from the All That You Are stamp set in Powder Pink Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I stamped the ‘Easter Blessings’ sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Itty Bitty Greetings Stamp Set in Fresh Fig Ink on top of the floral image.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Fresh Fig mat using Snail and then 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 floral image from the All That You Are stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front and colored it in using my Stampin’ Write 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 like my card and will give it a try.  If you really like any of the soon to retire 2017-2019 In-Colors, now is the time to get them.  Get them before the hit the retired list and sell out.  Happy Stamping!!
