Stampin’ Up Heartland Father’s Day Card

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  How is your week going?  We’ve made it to the half way mark.  Before you know it the weekend will be here.

For today’s card I have a Father’s Day card for you.  I don’t know about you, but Father’s Day kind of snuck up on me.  Here’s my card.

I started with a panel of Soft Suede cardstock and using the 2nd largest oval from the Layering Ovals Dies, I cut an oval out in the center.  I then embossed it using my Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered it using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, to a Sahara Sand card base which I had cut using the 3rd largest oval from the Layering Ovals Dies.

On a small panel of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the tractor image from the Stampin’ Up Heartland Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink.  I cut the image out using the 2nd largest oval from the Stitched Shapes Dies and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut out the work ‘happy’ using the Well Written Dies in Sahara Sand cardstock.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Well Said Cling Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink on a strip of Sahara Sand cardstock.  I adhered the ‘happy’ using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and the sentiment using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals to the right top of the card front.  I wrapped a piece of Linen Thread around the card front through the oval and tied  knot.

On the inside I stamped the barn image from the Heartland stamp set in Soft Suede Ink in the center of a Very Vanilla panel making sure it would show through the oval.  I added a tiny bit of color using my Aqua Painter to the grass and trees.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to the inside of the Sahara Sand card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I stamped the barn image from the Heartland stamp set on the envelope front in Soft Suede Ink.  I stamped the little boy walking with the ducks from the Heartland stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on 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 A Good Man Father’s Day Card

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Did you do anything funb?

TOMORROW IS THE BIG DAY!!!  The new 2019-2020 Annual Catalog goes live. Is anyone as excited as I am???  You can order anything and everything tomorrow.  I can’t wait.  I’m hoping to be able to hop on before I have to head into work to get my order placed.  My list is so long it may send my credit card into shock.  If anyone has a list as long as mine and you are interested in an online host club, click here for more information.  Now, if there is anything you have been wanting that is retiring, today is the last day to get it.

I have a quick Father’s Day card for you today.  I used the new Stampin’ Up A Good Man Stamp Set and paired it up with some of the Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper.  I absolutely love stamp sets that have that sketched look.  Here’s my card.

My card was able to join in with a few challenges.  First is the  Festive Friday challenge #0035.  Here is their challenge.

I joined in with the Stampin’ Up! Only challenge #224.  Their challenge it Masculine

I also joined in with the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge #223.  Here is their challenge.

I started by adhering a panel of the Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper to a Balmy Blue panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the image of the man carrying the little boy from the Stampin’ Up A Good Man Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink.  I colored the image in using my Balmy Blue, Crumb Cake, Ivory and Night of Navy Stampin’ Blends Markers.  Using my Triple Banner Punch I punched the bottom into a banner.  I adhered the banner to the matted DSP using Snail.  I wrapped a piece of Night of Navy/Sahara Sand Bakers Twine around the top and tied a knot.

 

I adhered the panel to the front of a Night of Navy card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  On a thins strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the A Good Man stamp set in Night of Navy Ink.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using a Stampin’ Dimensional and a Glue Dot.  I colored one of the Heart Epoxy Droplets in using my Night of Navy Stampin’ Blends Marker then adhered it to the right of the sentiment.

On the inside I stamped the man carrying the little boy image from A Good Man stamp set in Night of Navy Ink, stamping off 4 times, in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from A Good Man stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on top of the stamped image.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Balmy Blue mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Night of Navy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the man carrying the little boy image from the A God Man stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on the envelope front.  I colored it in the same as I did for the card.  I adhered a piece of Come Sail Away 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 Over The Moon Sneak Peek Fun Fold Card

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s week?  Hopefully you all have a long weekend to look forward to.

For today’s card I have a sneak peek for you from the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog and it’s a fun fold card.  I’ve used the soon to be available Stampin’ Up Over The Moon Cling Stamp Set.  I’ve never been a huge cow fan, but I absolutely love this set.  I think it is just the cutest set and I just love the puns.  I can’t help but smile when I look at the cow images in the set.  Here’s my card.

I’ve joined in with 3 challenges for today’s card.  1st is the Festive Friday Challenge #034.  Here is their challenge.

Next I played along with Global Design Project #190.  Here is their sketch challenge.

I’ve also joined in with Sunday Stamps Challenge #205.  Here are their colors.

I started by adhering a piece of Sahara Sand Neutrals 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper, which will be retiring June 3rd, to the inside and front panel of a Sahara Sand card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped one of the cow images from the Over The Moon stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I colored the cow in using my Light Basic Black, Real Red and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers.    I stamped the sentiment from Over The Moon stamp set on a diagonal in the top left corner of the Whisper White panel in Smoky Slate Ink.  I adhered a strip of Real Red cardstock along the bottom of the Whisper White panel using Snail.  I adhered a thin strip of Basic Black cardstock along the bottom edge of the Real Red strip using Snail.  I stamped the moon image from the Over The Moon stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a scrap of Whisper White cardstock and fussy cut it using my Paper Snips.  I applied Wink Of Stella on the moon to make it shimmer then adhered it on the bottom of the Whisper White panel using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Crumb Cake mat using Snail then to a Basic Black mat using Snail.  I adhered the matted artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals, only on the left half of the artwork.

I adhered another piece of the Sahara Sand Neutrals 6 X 6 DSP to the inside smaller side of the Sahara Sand card base.  I stamped another one of the cow images from the Over The Moon stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink, stamping off 3 times to get a very light image, on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I stamped the sentiment from the Over The Moon stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink over the cow image, in the center of the Whisper White panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Basic Black mat using Snail and then to the inside of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, making sure it was under the front panel.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Wisper White Envelope.  I stamped the cow image from the Over The Moon stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the front of the envelope.  I colored it in the same as I did for the card.  I also stamped the thought bubble from the Over The Moon stamp set above the cow image and colored the heart in with my Real Red Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of Sahara Sand Neutrals 6 X 6 DSP on the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try.  The Stampin’ Up Over The Moon Stamp Set will be available on June 4th for purchase, that’s in just 11 short days.  I hope everyone has a wonderful long Holiday Weekend and you have fun with whatever plans you have.  Happy stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Retirement List Clarification

It looks like every single stamp set from the 2018-19 Annual Catalog is being retired and that isn’t the case, the carryover sets are being transitioned to Cling Mount.

The stamp sets offered in clear-mount or wood-mount in the 2018–2019 annual catalog that are carrying over into the 2019–2020 annual catalog will be offered in clear-mount and/or wood-mount until existing inventory has been depleted or until June 4, 2019 (whichever comes first).

If the inventory is depleted, you will be notified of the automatic switch to cling when placing an order for that stamp set. This means that you may end up purchasing select cling stamp sets (in carryover artwork) before they can be ordered from the catalog!  All carryover rubber stamp sets will be available in cling medium only (with the exception of background stamps in North America) beginning June 4, 2019.

Stampin’ Up Lift Me Up CAS

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  Were you able to hop around yesterday for the Blog Hop?  If not, be sure to go back and check out everyone’s awesome projects.

For today’s card I made a Father’s Day card with one of the retiring stamp set.  Here’s my card.

I played along with the Sunday Stamps challenge #204.  Here is their sketch.

I started with a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the large and small hot air balloons from the Stampin’ Up Lift Me Up Stamp Set in Blushing Bride, Coastal Cabana, Night of Navy and Poppy Parade Inks.  I did the Masking Technique when stamping the balloons so that it looked like some were in the background.

I stamped the sentiment from the Lift Me Up stamp set below the balloons in Night of Navy Ink.  I stamped a few of the clouds from the same stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink stamping off once around the balloons.

I adhered the artwork to a Silver Foil Sheet using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and then to a Night of Navy card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the large hot air balloon from the Lift Me Up stamp set in Night of Navy Ink stamping foo multiple times until I got the light image that I wanted.  I stamped the clouds from the same stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink again stamping off multiple times until I got the light shade that I wanted.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Well Said Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink inside the hot air balloon.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Poppy Parade mat using Snail then I adhered it to the inside of the Night of Navy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I stamped a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the larger hot air balloons from the Lift Me Up stamp set on the envelope front in Night of Navy and Poppy Parade Inks.  I stamped the smaller hot air balloons from the same stamp set on the envelope flap in the same color inks.  I used the masking technique the same as I did for the card.  I stamped a few clouds from the same stamp set on the envelope front and flap in Smoky Slate Ink.

The Lift Me Up stamp set along with the matching Up & Away Thinlits will be retiring as of June 3rd.  This is such a fun set, I’m sorry to see it go.

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

Stampin’ Up Sailing Home Sneak Peek for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  It’s the 2nd Tuesday of the month and that means it’s time for another Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop. The 2nd Tuesday of every month this amazing group of ladies put together a blog hop and you are guaranteed to see some awesome projects. This month our theme is ‘MASCULINE’. We can interpret this any way we would like to. If you are starting with me, be sure to hop around to see everyone’s projects. If you’ve hopped over from Amy Koenders, welcome to my blog and thank you for stopping by.

For today’s card I have a little sneak peek for you along with a Fun Fold card.  I used the Stampin’ Up Sailing Home Stamp Set, the Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper, the Come Sail Away Memories and More Card Pack and one of the new 2019-2021 In-Colors Seaside Spray, all which will be available June 4th.  I really struggle with masculine cards, but I had so much fun with this one.  The Sailing Home Suite makes it really easy to make a masculine card.  Here’s my card.

I started with the new 2019-2021 In-Color, Seaside Spray cardstock and scored it at 2 3/4″ and 8 1/4″ to make a gate fold card.

On the 2 sides I adhered a panel of the new Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I made a little collage for the overlapping panel.  I stamped 2 of the Whisper White panels with the sailboat image and sentiment from the new Sailing Home stamp set in Night Of Navy Ink.  I adhered the anchor and banner stickers, that come in the Come Sail Away Memories & More Card Pack, on the 2 smaller panels.  I sponged all the panels using my Stamping Sponge and Sahara Sand Ink.  I then adhered all the pieces to a panel of Night Of Navy cardstock using Multipurpose Liquid Glue so that I had a little wiggle room.  I adhered the collaged panel to one side of the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I tied a knot using the Night of Navy/Sahara Sand Bakers Twine and adhered it to the artwork using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up High Tide Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the water from the same set on the bottom of the panel in Seaside Spray Ink.  I stamped the lighthouse from the Sailing Home stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink and the birds from the same stamp set in Night of Navy Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Night of Navy mat using Snail and then adhered it to the inside of the Seaside Spray card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the front of the envelope similar to the inside of the card adding the sailboat from the Sailing Home stamp set in Night of Navy Ink.  I adhered a panel of Come Sail Away DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card, this was a lot of fun to make.  The Come Sail Away Suite made it so easy.  If you like the items I used, they will be available June 4th.  Happy Stamping!!

If the inventory is depleted, you will be notified of the automatic switch to cling when placing an order for that stamp set. This means that you may end up purchasing select cling stamp sets (in carryover artwork) before they can be ordered from the catalog!  All carryover rubber stamp sets will be available in cling medium only (with the exception of background stamps in North America) beginning June 4, 2019.

Stampin’ Up Sailing Home Sneak Peek

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers and Happy May Day everyone! .  We’re half way through the week and on our way to the weekend.  I can’t believe it’s May already. Before you know it, Memorial Day will be here.

For today’s card I have a little sneak peek for you from the up coming 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.  It’s the Stampin’ Up Sailing Home Bundle.  This was the first set that caught my eye and I just had to have it.  I’ve also made a fun fold card for you.  Here’s my card.

I joined in with the TGIF Inspiration Challenge #209 .  Here’s their challenge.

I started with a Soft Suede card base and scored it at 5 1/2″ and 2 3/4″.  I adhered a panel of the up coming Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper to the inside.  I just love news print paper on cards.

I took a small panel of the Soft Suede cardstock and ran it through my Big Shot using the Seaside Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  This folder will be retiring as of June 3rd, so now’s the time to grab it if it’s something you’ve been wanting.  I stamped the anchor, lighthouse, sailboat and sentiment images from the Sailing Home stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on a panel of Sahara Sand cardstock.  I then cut them out using the Smooth Sailing Dies.  I also cut a strip of Sahara Sand cardstock and sponged it with Soft Suede Ink using my Stamping Sponge.

I arranged the pieces the way I wanted to on the embossed panel.  I adhered them using Glue Dots and Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the card front to the front panel of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the small inside panel I adhered a piece of Sahara Sand cardstock using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up High Tide Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink.  I stamped the grass and birds from the same stamp set on the bottom of the panel in Sahara Sand Ink stamping off once.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I started by sponging all around the front and back of the envelope with Soft Suede Ink and my Stamping Sponge.  I stamped the lighthouse and sailboat from the Sailing Home stamp set in Soft Suede Ink.  I adhered a panel of the Come Sail Away DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope that you liked my card.  This stamp set, dies and DSP will all be available June 4th for purchase.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up Heartland Masculine card for Watercooler Wednesday and Colour and Sketch

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers.  How was your week?  Are you happy the weekend is finally here? Has anyone made fun plans?  I’m hoping to get a little crafting in myself, but we’ll see.

For today’s card I used the Stampin’ Up Heartland Stamp Set to make a masculine card for you.  This can be a Father’s Day card, Birthday, Thinking of you, or anything else you can think of.

I also joined in with a couple challenges today.  1st is the CAS Colour & Sketch Challenge # 309.  Be sure to stop by to see what everyone has made and to play along.  Here are their colors for the challenge.

The next is Watercooler Wednesday Challenge #209.   Be sure to stop by here too and see what everyone has made and to play along.  Here is their challenge.

I started by adhering a piece of Wood Textures Designer Series Paper to a panel of Pear Pizzazz cardstock using Snail.  On another smaller piece of Wood Textures DSP I stamped the little boy with the ducks from the Heartland stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the right side.  I colored the little boy in with my Pear Pizzazz Stampin’ Write Marker and my light Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends Marker.  I then adhered the panel to the bottom of the Pear Pizzazz card front using Snail.
I wrapped a piece of Linen Thread around the seam twice and tied a small bow.  I adhered the card front to a So Saffron card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the tractor with the dog from the Heartland stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the tractor in using my Pear Pizzazz Stampin’ Write Marker and my Dark Daffodil Delight Stampn’ Blends Marker.  Using my Big Shot, I cut the image out with my Square Stitched Shaped Framelits Dies and I adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the tractor image from the Heartland stamp set in Early Espresso Ink, stamping off twice, in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Part Of My Story Stamp Set in Pear Pizzazz Ink over the tractor.  This stamp set is a Sale-A-Bration item free with a $50 order.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the tractor image from the Heartland stamp set on the front of the envelope.  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. This was a pretty quick and easy card to make.  Happy Stamping!!
