Stampin’ Up! Tasteful Touches CAS

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 Loads of Lavender challenge. Here is my card that was inspired from the challenge photo.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Tasteful Touches Cling Stamp Set . I was inspired by the colors in the photo along with the gingham bow (even though mine isn’t black) 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 #153. How are you inspired by this photo?

I started by adhering a panel of In Good Taste Designer Series Paper to a Gray Granite card base using Stampin’ Seal.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the pitcher image from the Stampin’ Up! Country Home Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. If this is a set that you like, it will be retiring as of May 3rd. I colored the image in using my Gray Granite Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the leafy image from the Tasteful Touches stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink above the pitcher and colored the leaves in using my Highland Heather Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I cut the image out using my Scalloped Contours Dies. These are my absolute new favorite dies in case you can’t tell. I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I tied a small bow using the gingham ribbon from the Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack and adhered it to the pitcher using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Tasteful Touches stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the leafy image from the Tasteful Touches stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink on the corners of the panel and colored the leaves in using my Highland Heather Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Soft Succulent mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Gray Granite card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the leafy image from the Tasteful Touches stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink on the envelope front and colored the leaves in using my Highland Heather Stampin’ Blends Markers. 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! Very Versailles

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends. How has everyone’s week started off? Hope you will be having a productive one.

For today I made a simple stamping card for you. My card uses Stamps, Ink and Paper. I used the Stampin’ Up! Very Versailles Cling Stamp Set for my card. I’ve been wanting to use it for a while, so here’s my card for today.

My colors are from Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge #360.

I started with a Basic White card front and stamped the script image from the Very Versailles stamp set in So Saffron Ink, stamping off once. I stamped the leaf image from the Very Versailles stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on the card front overlapping the script.

I adhered a panel of Hydrangea Hill Designer Series Paper to the bottom of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the card front to a Highland Heather mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to a Basic White card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Very Versailles stamp set in Highland Heather Ink and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the script image from the Very Versailles stamp set in So Saffron Ink, stamping off twice, in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the leaf from the Very Versailles stamp set image on the side of the panel in Pear Pizzazz Ink. I stamped the sentiment from the Very Versailles stamp set in Highland Heather Ink in the center of the panel over the script image. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Highland Heather 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 leaf image from the Very Versailles stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the Hydrangea Hill DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Garden Wishes Hello

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend? Saturday was an absolutely gorgeous spring day here. Sunday, well, lets just say it was a good day to stay in. Unfortunately I had to go out to work, it was just a very rainy gloomy day.

I have another quick and easy card for you today using the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Garden Wishes Cling Stamp Set. The main part of my card uses the Dandelion 3D Embossing Folder. Here’s my card for today.

My colors are from Fab Friday Challenge #210.

I started by embossing a Smoky Slate card front using the Dandelion 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the embossed panel to a Smoky Slate mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and then to a Smoky Slate card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Garden Wishes stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock in Pear Pizzazz Ink. I cut the sentiment out using the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. I cut a mat from a panel of Pear Pizzazz cardstock using the larger die from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I punched one of the dragonflies out of a panel of the Dandy Garden Designer Series Paper using my Dragonflies Punch and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a few 2020-2022 In-Color Enamel Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Garden Wishes stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the dandelion image from the Garden Wishes stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Pear Pizzazz mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Smoky Slate card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the dandelion image from the Garden Wishes stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the Subtle 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Brilliance Gala

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends and Happy St. Patrick’s Day to you. Even if you are not Irish, today everyone has just a bit in them. I don’t have any Irish in me (just Italian), but growing up my mom always made corn beef and cabbage on St. Patrick’s Day. Don’t forget to wear your Green today!! We’re halfway through the week and heading towards the weekend, hope you are making some fun plans.

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

I used the Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Brilliance Bundle and the Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Gala Photopolymer Stamp Set. The butterfly was my main inspiration 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 #151. How are you inspired by this photo?

I started by cutting a Shimmery White card front using the Potted Succulents Dies and adhered it to a panel of Butterfly Bijou Designer Series Paper using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the card front to a Mint Macaron card base using Stampin’ Seal.

I stamped the largest butterfly from the Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Brilliance Cling Stamp in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I cut the butterfly out using my Brilliant Wings Dies. I colored the butterfly in using my Bermuda Bay, Highland Heather and Magenta Madness Stampin’ Blends Markers. From a panel of Basic Black cardstock I cut the largest detailed butterfly using the Brilliant Wings Dies and adhered it to the colored butterfly using Multipurpose Liquid Glue just on the butterfly body and fluffed the wings out. I adhered the butterfly to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Shimmery White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Gala Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I immediately sprinkled it with my Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I cut the sentiment out using the Potted Succulents Dies and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Butterfly Gala stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I adhered 2 strips of Butterfly Bijou DSP to either side of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Basic Black mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Mint Macaron card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I adhered a strip of Butterfly Bijou DSP to the envelope front and a panel to the envelope flap.

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

Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Birthdays Brilliant Wings

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend? I was able to attend our quarterly meeting in person. It was only my team leader and myself along with everyone else virtually, but I really enjoyed myself. It was great getting out for a bit with someone other than my co-workers.

Today’s card is one that we made at our team meeting and it was designed by one of my team members and upline Jaimie Babarczy. She always designs simple yet elegant cards. All the cards we made yesterday used the Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Brilliance Collection in one way or another. I’ll be showing my cards throughout the week. Here’s my card for today.

I’m playing along with the Inspire. Create. Challenge #086.

I started by embossing a Terracotta Tile card front using the Tasteful Textiles 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered a panel of True Love Designer Series Paper to a Basic White mat using Stampin’ Seal then adhered the matted panel to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the card front to a Terracotta Tile card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Using my Brilliant Wings Dies, I cut the largest butterfly out of a panel of Butterfly Bijou Designer Series Paper. I adhered the cut DSP to a Basic White mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I cut another one of the same detailed butterflies out of a panel of Basic Black cardstock. I adhered the butterfly over the Butterfly Bijou DSP using Multipurpose Liquid Glue just on the body of the butterfly. I adhered the matted panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Basic Black cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Birthdays Cling Stamp Set in Versamark Ink. I immediately sprinkled it with my White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I cut the sentiment using my Tasteful Labels Dies and adhered it to the card front using a Stampin’ Dimensionals and Glue Dot. I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Moments Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. Remember that butterfly I cut out of the Butterfly Bijou DSP panel? I adhered it below the sentiments using Multipurpose Liquid Glue just on the body. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Basic Black mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Terracotta Tile card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of the Butterfly Bijou DSP to the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the True Love 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. Don’t forget, Terracotta Tile is one of the 2019-2021 In-Colors that will be retiring May 3rd. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Happy Thoughts Dragonfly

Good Sunday morning my fellow stampers. How is everyone’s weekend going? Did you all remember to turn your clocks ahead? I made sure I did all of mine before retiring last night. I love this time of year, getting up in the daylight and it staying light out later at night. How about you, which time of year do you prefer?

I have a quick card for you today using the Stampin’ Up! Happy Thoughts Cling Stamp Set and the Stampin’ Up! Dragonfly Garden. Here’s my card for today.

My colors are from Color Throwdown Challenge #633. These colors give me that summer feeling.

I played along with Just Us Girls Trend Week Challenge #575. Use and Embossing Folder.

I also played along with Stampin’ Up! Only Challenges #270. Their Theme is Sky High – anything That Flies.

I started by embossing a Crumb Cake card front using the Dandelion 3D Embossing Folder. On an panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Happy Thoughts stamp set in Basic Gray Ink. I punched the sentiment out using my Label Me Fancy Punch. I punched both sides of the sentiment using the Label Me Fancy Punch again and threaded a length of Seaside Spray 1/2″ Scalloped Linen Ribbon through.

I wrapped the ribbon around the card front securing it on the back of the card front using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the card front to a Seaside Spray card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the dragonfly image from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set in Basic Gray Ink twice. I punched both dragonflies out using my Dragonfly Punch. I colored one of the dragonfly’s wings using my Clear Wink of Stella brush and Seaside Spray Ink (which I put on a clear block). Using my Bone Folder, I fluffed the wings of the colored dragonfly and adhered just the bodies of the dragonflies together using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the dragonfly to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to my card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Happy Thoughts stamp set in Basic Gray Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the dragonfly image from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set on the panel in Basic Gray Ink, stamping off once. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Crumb Cake mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Seaside Spray card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the dragonfly image from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set in Basic Gray Ink on the envelope front and 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! Dragonfly Garden Hello 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 Color Challenge. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects. I used the new Stampin’ Up! Dragonfly Garden Cling Stamp and the Stampin’ Up! Garden Wishes Bundle along with the Dandy Garden 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper. Here’s my card using this weeks colors.

I played along with the Paper Players Theme Challenge #531 this week.

Here are the colors we had for our challenge this week.

I started by adhering a Dandy Garden DSP card front to a Mossy Meadow card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered another panel of Dandy Garden DSP down the center of the card front using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered a panel of Dandy Garden DSP to a Mossy Meadow mat using Stampin’ Seal and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the wildflower image from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I colored the flowers and leaves in using my Blackberry Bliss and Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blends Markers. I colored the flower centers in using my Bumblebee Stampin’ Write Marker. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Garden Wishes Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the panel. I cut the panel using my Stitched Rectangle Dies and embossed it using my Subtle 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the artwork to a Mossy Meadow mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Seal.

I cut a couple of the bees from a panel of the Dandy Garden DSP using my Dandy Wishes Dies and adhered them to the artwork using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I tied a double bow using the Misty Moonlight/Silver Bakers Twine from the Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack and adhered it to the bottom of the artwork using a Glue Dot. I added a Ladybug Trinket by the sentiment using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Garden Wishes stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the wildflower image from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom of the panel and colored the flowers and leaves in using my Blackberry Bliss and Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered another bee that I had cut from the Dandy Garden DSP using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Mossy Meadow mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Mossy Meadow card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the wildflower image from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set on the envelope front and colored it in the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of the Dandy Garden DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. We’re halfway through the week and heading towards the weekend. How is your week going?

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

I used multiple stamp sets for today’s card, but mainly the Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern Bundle and the Stampin’ Up! Daisy Lane Cling Stamp Set. I was inspired by the colors and the bouquet of flowers for my collage card.

I hope you will take a moment to visit The Card Concept and join us this week to play along with our challenge #150. How are you inspired by this photo?

I started by adhering a panel of In Good Taste Designer Series Paper to a Thick Basic White Card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered another darker panel of In Good Taste DSP to the card front using Stampin’ Seal.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped multiple fern images from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern Cling Stamp Set in Garden Green, Just Jade and Pear Pizzazz Inks. I cut the images out using the Forever Flourishing Dies. I punched 9 daisies using the Medium Daisy Punch and adhered them together in sets of 3 using tiny amounts of Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I stamped the flower pot from the Stampin’ Up! Simply Succulents Cling Stamp Set and stamped the sentiment from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I cut the flower pot and sentiment out using the Potted Succulents Dies and colored the flower pot in using my Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends Markers. Using my Forever Flourishing Dies I cut other fern and leaf images from the Just Jade, Pear Pizzazz, Pretty Peacock, Shaded Spruce and Soft Seafoam panels of cardstock. Using the tiny flower dies from the Wreath Builder Dies I cut out 12 flowers from the panel of So Saffron cardstock. I cut the tiny flowers using the Confetti Flowers Border Punch from the panel of So Saffron cardstock.

I flipped the flower pot upside down and adhered a piece of the 1/4″ Early Espresso Faux Suede Trim with an Antique Slide from the Antique Corners & Slides Embellishments around the pot adhering it in the back with Glue Dots. I adhered the flower pot to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the pieces of fern and flowers to the card front arranging them how I liked using Glue Dots, Multipurpose Liquid Glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the sentiment to the bottom of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment and small daisy image from the Daisy Lane stamp set in the center of a Basic White panel in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the daisy centers in using my Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Pretty Peacock mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Thick Basic White card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped some of the fern images from the Forever Fern stamp set on the envelope front and 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! Berry Blessings

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers. How has everyone’s week started off? Yesterday I went to work and they said rain, so I brought my umbrella. My office is in the center of the store and I don’t have any windows. After a couple hours in the back, I came out and to my surprise there were about 3″ of snow covering the parking lot and sidewalks. I don’t think this snow is ever going to stop and go away. With the sun shining the other day, even though it was cold, it looked like spring was trying to make an appearance.

I used a Sale-A-Bration Bundle for today’s card that you can earn free with a qualifying order, but only until Sunday February 28th. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Berry Blessings Photopolymer Stamp Set that is bundled with the Berry Delightful Designer Series Paper as a Sale-A-Bration item. You can earn this bundle with a $100 order and it pairs up wonderfully with the Stampin’ Up! Sweet Strawberry Bundle.

I started by adhering a panel of the Berry Delightful DSP to a Balmy Blue mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to a Pacific Point card base using Stampin’ Seal.

Using the Berry Blessings stamp set, on a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the outline leaves image in Shaded Spruce Ink a few times. I stamped the leaves fill image in Granny Apple Green Ink over the outline image. I stamped the blueberry outline image in Pacific Point Ink matching up the berries and leaves. I stamped the berry fill image over the outline image in Balmy Blue Ink. I cut the panel out using my Stitched So Sweetly Dies. I adhered the artwork to a Pacific Point mat which I cut using the larger die from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies, using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the matted artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Berry Blessings stamp set in Pacific Point Ink and cut it into a banner using the Banner Pick A Punch. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I added a few Blue Adhesive-Backed Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Berry Blessings stamp set in Pacific Point Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the outline leaves image from the Berry Blessings stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink across the top of the panel. I stamped the leaves fill image in Granny Apple Green Ink over the outlined image. I stamped the outline blueberry image in Pacific Point Ink and the blueberry fill image in Balmy Blue Ink over the outlined image. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Balmy Blue mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Pacific Point card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the leaves and blueberry images the same as I did for the card on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the Berry Delightful 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!!
