Stampin’ Up! Happiness Abounds CAS

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. I hope you have the day off and have some picnic plans or maybe just taking some time to relax. My plan was to try to get ahead at my card table today. We’ll see what happens, my husband decided to invite a bunch of people over for a barbeque which I am NOT prepared for.

I have a quick and easy card for you today that I was able to make so quickly it scared me. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Happiness Abounds 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Happiness Abounds Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Designer Tags Dies for my card today.

Stampin' Up! Happiness Abounds 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by stamping the sentiment from Happiness Abounds stamp set in Versamark Ink on a panel of Night of Navy cardstock. I sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder from the Basic Embossing Powders and set it using the Heat Tool.

Stampin' Up! Happiness Abounds 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

Using the Designer Tags Dies, I cut the flower image on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Night of Navy panel to a Basic White Thick card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Happiness Abounds 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

I cut the butterfly die from the Designer Tags Dies from a panel of 2022-2024 In-Color Glimmer Paper. I adhered the butterfly to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I tied a small bow using the Parakeet Party 1/8″ Metallic Woven Ribbon and adhered it using a Glue Dot. I added a few Rhinestones Basic Jewels by the flower and Classic Matte Dots on the butterfly.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Happiness Abounds stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the rose image from the Happiness Abounds stamp set in Orchid Oasis Ink on the bottom of the panel. I masked the rose using a Post-It Note, which I cut the rose out of, and stamped the leaf image from the Happiness Abounds stamp set in Parakeet Party Ink. I colored the leaves using my Parakeet Party Stampin’ Blends Markers. I colored parts of the rose using my Orchid Oasis Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic Whtie panel to a Night of Navy mat and then to the inside of the Basic White Thick card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the rose image from the Happiness Abounds stamp set in Orchid Oasis Ink on the envelope front and flap. I masked the rose with a Post-It Note and stamped the leaf image from the Happiness Abounds around the rose in Parakeet Party Ink. I colored part of the rose and the leaves in using my Orchid Oasis and Parakeet Party Stampin’ Blends Markers.

Stampin’ Up! Apple Harvest Blossoms

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. I hope you weekend is going as planned. I’ll be at work all day today, but when I get home, we’ll be making homemade pizza in our pizza oven. My husband is making the pizza dough this morning and my daughter will be getting all the toppings cut up and ready for tonight. We love using our pizza oven, it’s the best. The longest part is preparing the pizza to go in with my fresh basil and mozzarella. Once it’s put in the oven, it’s a matter of seconds that it’s done.

Today’s card I used some of the new dies that will be available starting September 1st. These dies are awesome. If you are interested in getting them early, I’d love to talk with you. Here’s my card for today.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the pumpkin image from the Hello Harvest stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the pumpkin in using my Cajun Craze and Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the leaf image from the Hello Harvest stamp set in Crushed Curry Ink 6 times. I cut all the images out using the Rustic Pumpkin Dies. Using the Rustic Pumpkin Dies, I cut out 2 of the detailed pumpkins from a panel of Cajun Craze and Pumpkin Pie cardstock. I cut the pumpkin tops and vines from a panel of Mossy Meadow cardstock. I adhered the detailed pumpkin pieces and the pumpkin tops and vines together using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I colored just the banner part using my Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Write Marker. I stamped the sentiment from the Hello Harvest stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink inside the banner. I cut the banner out using my Rustic Pumpkins Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the top of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Brushed Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dots to the card front.

Stampin’ Up! Brightest Beauty CAS

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend. It’s HOT here. We’re supposed to be in the 100’s today. The ‘feel like’ temp for the past week has been over 100 every day. My son has been coming home from work exhausted. He’s a soccer coach and has been outside in the sun for the past week at camps. He brings gallons of water with him and picks up Gatorade or Powerade drinks too. The good thing about the heat we’re having, my tomatoes are ripening, I was able to have my 1st tomato sandwich of the season yesterday and it was delicious.

Today I have a really quick CAS card for you using a new set I just received from the July-December Mini Catalog. I looked over this set at first, but I have to admit, I LOVE it. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Brightest Beauty Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Stampin’ Up! Go To Greetings Cling Stamp Set for my card today.

My colors are from Color Throwdown Challenge #702.

I got my CAS design from Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #545.

Stampin' Up! Brightest Beauty CAS2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by stamping the leaf image from the Brightest Beauty stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the flower image from the Brightest Beauty stamp set in So Saffron Ink over the leaf image. I randomly stamped the geometric image from the Brightest Beauty stamp set in Pool Party Ink around the outside of the panel.

Stampin' Up! Brightest Beauty CAS3 creativestampingdesigns.com

I cut the stamped panel into 1 1/2″ strips and adhered them to a Basic White Thick card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Brightest Beauty CAS4 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a strip of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Go To Greetings in Crumb Cake Ink. I fussy cut the sentiment using my Paper Snips. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Brightest Beauty CAS5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Brightest Beauty stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the floral image from the Brightest Beauty stamp set on the side of the panel in Pear Pizzazz and So Saffron Inks. I stamped the geometric image from the Brightest Beauty stamp set in Pool Party Ink on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Pool Party mat and then to the inside of the Basic White Thick card base.

Stampin' Up! Brightest Beauty CAS6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the floral image from the Brightest Beauty stamp set on the envelope front in Pear Pizzazz and So Saffron Inks. I stamped the geometric design from the Brightest Beauty stamp set in Pool Party Ink on the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Perched In A Tree

Good Monday morning my stamping friends and welcome to a new week. How was everyone’s weekend?

I played with a new set from the July-December Mini Catalog. This set I wasn’t sure about, but once I started playing with it, I really like it. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Perched In A Tree Bundle along with the Texture Chic Specialty Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by adhering a panel of Texture Chic DSP to a Soft Succulent card base. On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the branch image and sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Perched In A Tree Cling Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink. I stamped the bird image in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the branch using my Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends Markers. I colored the bird image using my Crumb Cake, Pale Papaya and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers. I used my Stampin’ Blends Color Lifter to remove some of the Smoky Slate In from the bird.

I cut the images out using my Aspen Tree Dies and the smallest Deckled Rectangle Die for the sentiment. I cut the leaf dies from the Aspen Tree Dies from panels of Mango Melody, Petal Pink and Pool Party cardstock. I cut the detailed leaf dies from the Chic Dies from a panel of Texture Chic DSP.

I adhered the branch using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the bird on the branch using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the large leaf and the details leaves using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and the smaller leaves using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the sentiment using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Perched In A Tree stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the bird image from the Perched In A Tree stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom of the panel. I colored the bird the same as I did for the card front. I adhered the Basic Whtie panel to a Soft Succulent mat and then to the inside of the Soft Succulent card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the bird image from the Perched In A Tree stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I colored the bird the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of Texture Chic 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! Lovely You for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. I hope everyone is doing well today. If you are hopping over from Karen Finkel’s blog, thank you for stopping by. This week we have a Color Challenge. Here is my card using this week’s Colors.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Lovely You Cling Stamp Set along with the Perfectly Penciled Designer Series Paper for my book fold card today.

These are our colors this week. I chose Polished Pink for my mystery color.

I started by coloring some of the flowers on a panel of the Perfectly Penciled DSP using my Polished Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the card front and strip to Polished Pink mats using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the binding side of the card front together using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Lovely You stamp set in Versmark Ink and sprinkled it with my Black Embossing Powder. I set it using my Heat Tool. I punched the sentiment out with my Double Oval Punch. I punched out a scalloped oval from a panel of Basic Black cardstock using the Double Oval Punch. I adhered the sentiment to the scalloped oval using Stampin’ Seal.

I adhered a piece of Polished Pink 3/8″ Open Weave Ribbon to the card front with a small amount of Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered sentiment over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Polished Pink 2021-2023 In-Color Opal Rounds to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Lovely You stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I adhered a strip of the Perfectly Penciled DSP to the side of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Polished Pink mat and then to the inside of the Basic Black card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of the Perfectly Penciled DSP to the envelope front and a panel to the envelope flap. I stamped the small flower from the Lovely You stamp set in Polished Pink Ink on the envelope front.

Stampin’ Up! Friends Are Like Seashells for The Card Concepts

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends.  I hope everyone is having a productive week. We’re halfway through and on our way to the weekend. It’s been gorgeous here for the past week, sunny and perfect temp.

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

I used the Stampin’ Up! Friends Are Like Seashells Photopolymer Stamp Set for my clean and layered card today.

I hope you will take a moment to visit The Card Concepts and join us for our challenge #178.  How are you inspired by this photo?

I played along with the Alphabet Challenge ‘F is for Friendship’.

I started by stamping the shell images from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink on a Shimmery White panel. I cut the image out using the largest die from the Seaside Seashells Dies. I them embossed the panel using the Seashells 3D Embossing Folder.

I lined up a panel of Pool Party cardstock with the front of a Basic White Thick card base and using the 2nd largest die from the Deckled Rectangle Dies, I cut both panels together. I put a think bead of Multipurpose Liquid Glue along the edge of the front of the Basic Whtie Thick card base and adhered the die cut shells. I adhered the Pool Party frame over the die cut panel, making sure it lined up with the card base, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. Using my Blending Brush and Balmy Blue Ink, I added color to a panel of Vellum Paper. I adhered the panel of inked Vellum to the inside front of the Basic White Thick card base with the inked side against the die cut image.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sand dollar image from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper. I stamped the sentiment from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set over the sand dollar image in Sahara Sand Ink. I cut the image out using the coordinating die from the Seaside Seashells Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I tied a small double bow using the Crumb Cake bakers twine from the Bakers Twine Essential Pack and adhered it to the card front using a Glue Dot. I added a few Solid Faceted Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the star fish image from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper, on the top of the panel. I stamped the seaweed images form the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Pool Party Ink along the bottom of the panel, some stamped full strength and some stamped off once. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Pool Party mat and then to the inside of the Basic White Thick card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the sand, shells and seaweed images from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set on the bottom front of the envelope and the envelope flap in Crumb Cake, Pool Party and Sahara Sand Inks.

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

Stampin’ Up! Cheerful Basket

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends. Welcome to the weekend. Does anyone have any plans this weekend? I have the weekend off, YAY! Tonight, I will be attending virtually our Creativity Now Event. All the cards we will be making will be featuring the Stampin’ Up! Splendid Thoughts Bundle. I’m looking forward to just having fun stamping online with other demonstrators. I’ll be showing the cards we will be making over the next week.

Today’s card is one that we made at our Mystery Stamping this past Tuesday at our Team Stamping Studio. Mystery stamping is always a lot of fun. Our Upline Jaimie give us cardstock and DSP measurements and talks us through putting it together. All of our cards are similar, but different. Here’s what I came up with for my card.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Cheerful Basket Bundle along with the Tea Boutique 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my card.

I started by embossing a panel of Basic White cardstock using the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered it to a Basic White Thick card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered a panel of Tea Boutique DSP to a Sweet Sorbet mat. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment form the Stampin’ Up! Cheerful Basket Photopolymer Stamp Set in Sweet Sorbet Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Sweet Sorbet mat. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the basket, butterfly, cat and craft supply image from the Cheerful Basket stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the images in using my Daffodil Delight, Flirty Flamingo, Fresh Freesia, Orchid Oasis, Pale Papaya, Parakeet Party, Polished Pink, Smoky Slate, Soft Suede, Starry Sky, Sweet Sorbet and Tahitian Tide Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut all the images out using my Full Basket Dies. I adhered the images on the sentiment panel the way I wanted them using Glue dots and Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few 2022-2024 In-Color Matte Decorative Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Cheerful Basket stamp set in Sweet Sorbet Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the cat image from the Cheerful Basket stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom of the panel and colored it using my Pale Papaya Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Sweet Sorbet mat and then to the inside of the Basic White Thick card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the butterfly and cat images from the Cheerful Basket stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I colored the images in using my Daffodil Delight and Pale Papaya Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of the Tea Boutique 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!!
