Stampin’ Up! All Bundled Up

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend? Saturday was beautiful here, then Sunday was overcast, and we had downpours at night. Our backyard was flooded for a bit.

I played with another new set for me from the July – December Mini Catalog for today’s card and kept it very simple. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! All Bundled Up 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! All Bundled Up Cling Stamp Set along with the Storybook Gnome Designer Series Paper for my card today.

My sketch is from the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge # 554.

Stampin' Up! All Bundled Up 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by adhering a panel of Storybook Gnome DSP to a Pool Party card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the adorable racoon image from the All Bundled Up stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image using my Bermuda Bay, Crumb Cake, Ivory, Pool Party and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the panel using the Deckled Rectangle Dies.

I stamped the sentiment from the All Bundled Up stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom of a Bermuda Bay panel. I adhered the sentiment panel to a Pool Party mat and then to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered the die cut racoon image to a Pool Party mat then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Adhesive-Backed Stars to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the All Bundled Up stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the snowflake image around the sentiment in Pool Party Ink. I adhered a strip of Storybook Gnomes DSP to the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Bermuda Bay mat then to the inside of the Pool Party card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the racoon image from the All Bundled Up stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and colored it the same as for the card. I stamped the snowflake image from the All Bundled Up stamp set in Pool Party Ink around the racoon. I adhered a panel of Storybook Gnome DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Ranunculus Romance for The Card Concepts

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. We’re halfway through and on our way to the weekend. I hope everyone’s week is going well. I had 1 day off this week, and it was yesterday. I made the most of it for sure. By 9am I had brought my daughter to the train station, started laundry, did a sink full of dishes from a mess I made, and I had 20 containers of homemade pesto made. My basil was unbelievable this year, I had leaves the size of my hand, and the smell was amazing. The rest of the day was spent doing my normal chores around the house, running errands, taking the puppy out multiple times, appointments a little bit of gardening and finding time to catch up on emails. I’m really looking forward to my next day off, next Tuesday, already lol.

It’s time for an inspiration challenge for The Card Concepts. This week we have 2 inspiration photos. The inspiration is Travel Abroad or Stay At Home. You can pick something from the photo, or you can go with the colors. Here is my card that was inspired from the 1st challenge photo.

Stampin' Up! Ranunculus Romance Hello 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Ranunculus Romance Cling Stamp Set along with the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Moments Cling Stamp Set, Rectangle Postage Stamp Punch and the Vellum Layering Designs Paper for my Clean and Layered card this week.

I hope you will take a moment to visit The Card Concepts and join us for our challenge #180a or 180b.  Which of the photos are your inspired by?

Stampin' Up! Ranunculus Romance Hello 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by adhering a panel of the Vellum Layering Designs Paper to a Basic Black card base. I only put the adhesive behind where I was going to put the artwork since you can see it through the vellum.

Stampin' Up! Ranunculus Romance Hello 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

From a panel of Basic White cardstock, using my Rectangle Postage Stamp Punch, I punched out 5 rectangles. On 2 of the rectangles, I stamped the floral images from the Ranunculus Romance stamp set in Balmy Blue Ink. On 2 of the rectangles, I first stamped the script image in So Saffron Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper. I then stamped the sentiments in Tuxedo Black Ink over the script. On the last rectangle, I stamped the Eiffel Tower image from the Ranunculus Romance stamp set in Poppy Parade Ink.

Stampin' Up! Ranunculus Romance Hello 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

I adhered the punched rectangle stamps to So Saffron mats using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the layered panels to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

Stampin' Up! Ranunculus Romance Hello 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Peaceful Moments stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the rose image from the Ranunculus Romance stamp set in Balmy Blue Ink on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a So Saffron mat then to the inside of the Basic Black card base.

Stampin' Up! Ranunculus Romance Hello 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the images from the Ranunculus Romance stamp set in Balmy Blue, Poppy Parade, So Saffron and Tuxedo Black on the envelope front and flap.

I will post a note on my Facebook page this afternoon if I am able to go live. We have a celebration for my boss at work today and I’m not sure if I will be out early enough to go live. They are having a luncheon for him and his wife for their new baby that will be arriving in less than a month. I’m hoping to get out on time.

Stampin’ Up! Apple Harvest Friendship

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends, welcome to the weekend. I hope you have something fun planned. I’ll be working all day today.

This past Tuesday was our team meeting. After we finish with the business part of the meeting, we do some mystery stamping. Our upline Jaimie gives us measurements of cardstock and DSP and lets us know what other products we may need. The rest is up to us. She talks up through what to do and at the end our cards are all similar, but also very different. Here’s what I came up with.

Stampin' Up! Apple Harvest Friendship 1 creativestanpingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Apple Harvest Bundle along with the Gingham Cottage Designer Series Paper for my card today. This bundle is only available until September 30, 2022. The stamp set is in the July-December 2022 Mini Catalog.

Stampin' Up! Apple Harvest Friendship 2 creativestanpingdesigns.com

I started by making a small mark about 1 3/4″ up from the bottom left front of a So Saffron card base. I cut from that mark to the bottom right corner using my Paper Trimmer.

Stampin' Up! Apple Harvest Friendship 3 creativestanpingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the apple image from the Stampin’ Up! Apple Harvest Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image using my Flirty Flamingo, Granny Apple Green, Poppy Parade, Soft Suede and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image out using my Apple Blossoms Dies. I cut a panel of Granny Apple Green cardstock using the Stylish Shapes Dies. I embossed the die cut panel using the Stitched Greenery Die.

Stampin' Up! Apple Harvest Friendship 4 creativestanpingdesigns.com

I adhered the die cut apple image to the Granny Apple Green panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I tied a small bow with Linen Thread and adhered it to the apple stem using a Glue Dot. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment from the Apple Harvest stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the Basic White panel. I cut the sentiment out using the Harvest Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the card base along the bottom angled edge using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I colored a few of the Pearl Basic Jewels using my Dark Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends Marker. I adhered the pearls to the card front.

Stampin' Up! Apple Harvest Friendship 5 creativestanpingdesigns.com

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Apple Harvest stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Granny Apple Green mat then to the inside top of the So Saffron card base. I adhered a panel of Gingham Cottage DSP to the inside bottom of the So Saffron card base.

Stampin' Up! Apple Harvest Friendship 6 creativestanpingdesigns.com

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the apple image from the Apple Harvest stamp set on the envelope front and colored it the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of the Gingham Cottage DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern Triple Time

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends and welcome to the weekend. I hope you have something fun planned or maybe relaxing is the plan. It’s supposed to be a beautiful weekend here in NJ. I’m hoping to get in a walk or 2 with Coraline to get some of her energy out. Tomorrow, I get to visit my team leader Amy for our meeting and see her dog, Ginny. Ginny always knows I’m coming, and I bring her some kind of treat from the bakery.

Today’s card I used a set from the Annual Catalog doing one of my favorite techniques. This card used Stamps, Ink and Paper all layered together. I added a couple embellishment to dress it up a bit. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Forever Fern Triple Time 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern Cling Stamp Set for my Triple Time card today.

Stampin' Up! Forever Fern Triple Time 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by stamping the sentiment from the Forever Fern stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink on the smallest panel of Basic White cardstock. I took the 3 panels of Basic White cardstock and lightly adhered them together using a tiny amount of Stampin’ Seal.

Stampin' Up! Forever Fern Triple Time 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

I randomly stamped the leaf and splatter images from the Forever Fern stamp set in Cajun Craze, Mossy Meadow, Pumpkin Pie and Rich Razzleberry Inks on the layered panels.

Stampin' Up! Forever Fern Triple Time 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

I adhered the 2 smaller stamped panels to Rich Razzleberry mats using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the larger Basic White panel to the Rich Razzleberry card base using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the other 2 panels to the card front matching up the leaf images. I added a few Brushed Metallic Adhesive Backed Dots to the card front.

Stampin' Up! Forever Fern Triple Time 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Forever Fern stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the leaf and splatter images from the Forever Fern stamp set in Cajun Craze, Mossy Meadow, Pumpkin Pie and Rich Razzleberry Inks on the top and bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Mossy Meadow mat and then to the inside of the Rich Razzleberry card base.

Stampin’ Up! Soft Seedlings 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 Akiko’s blog, thank you for stopping by. This week we have Theme Challenge. Here is my card using this week’s Theme.

Stampin' Up! Soft Seedlings Pink 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Soft Seedlings Cling Stamp Set for my card today.

Here is our Theme for this week.

Stampin' Up! Soft Seedlings Pink 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by embossing a panel of Blushing Bride cardstock using the Timber 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the embossed panel to a Blushing Bride card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue

Stampin' Up! Soft Seedlings Pink 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the large leaf image from the Soft Seedlings stamp set. I inked up the stamp with Blushing Bride Ink then using my Sponge Dauber, I added some Soft Suede Ink along the edges. I cut the image out using my Deckled Rectangle Dies. I stamped the sentiment from the Soft Seedlings stamp set along the bottom in Soft Suede Ink.

Stampin' Up! Soft Seedlings Pink 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

I adhered the artwork to a Soft Suede mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to the Blushing Bride card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I tied a small bow with Linen Thread and added it to the leaf stem using a Glue Dot. I added a few Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

Stampin' Up! Soft Seedlings Pink 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Soft Seedlings stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the seedling image from the Soft Seedlings stamp set on the top of the panel. I inked the stamp first with Blushing Bride Ink then using my Sponge Dauber I added Soft Suede Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Blushing Bride mat and then to the inside of the Blushing Bride card base.

Stampin' Up! Soft Seedlings pink 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the large leaf image from the Soft Seedlings stamp set on the envelope front inking it up the same as for the card. I stamped the seedling image from the Soft Seedlings stamp set on the envelope flap inking the stamp the same as for the card.

Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Brilliance 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. I’m not sure if I’ll be able to go live today on my Facebook page since today’s the first day I’m back in the office since last Thursday. I will post something on my Facebook page if I will be going live at 4pm ET.

It’s time for an inspiration challenge for The Card Concepts after a few weeks off for the summer. The inspiration photo is Change of Seasons. Here is my card that was inspired from the challenge photo.

Stampin' Up! Butterfly Brilliance 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Brilliance Cling Stamp Set along with the Stampin’ Up! Very Best Occasions Cling Stamp Set and the Tea Boutique 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my clean and simple card today.

I hope you will take a moment to visit The Card Concepts and join us for our challenge #179.  How are you inspired by this photo?

Stampin' Up! Butterfly Brilliance 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by adhering 2 strips of Tahitian Tide cardstock to a Tea Boutique DSP card front using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the panel to a Basic White Thick card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Butterfly Brilliance 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the largest butterfly image from the Butterfly Brilliance stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I cut the butterfly out using the Brilliant Wings Dies. I then colored the butterfly image using my So Saffron, Sweet Sorbet and Tahitian Tide Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the butterfly to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals just in the center bending the wings up a bit.

Stampin' Up! Butterfly Brilliance 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Very Best Occasions stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I cut the sentiment out using the Label Me Fancy Punch. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few 2022-2024 In-Color Matte Decorative Dots to the card front.

Stampin' Up! Butterfly Brilliance 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Very Best Occasions stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the butterfly image from the Butterfly Brilliance stamp set on either side of the panel in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the images in using my So Saffron, Sweet Sorbet and Tahitian Tide Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Tahitian Tide mat and then to the inside of the Basic White Thick card base.

Stampin' Up! Butterfly Brilliance 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the butterfly image from Butterfly Brilliance stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I colored the butterfly using my So Saffron, Sweet Sorbet and Tahitian Tide Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of Tea Boutique DSP to the envelope flap.

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.

Stampin' Up! Happiness Abounds 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

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.

Stampin' Up! Happiness Abounds 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

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! Brightest Beauty Fun Fold Video Tutorial

Good Friday morning my stamping friends welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Has anyone made any plans for the long weekend yet? I’ll be working all day tomorrow, but I have Sunday and Monday off YAY!!!

Today’s card I made on my Facebook Live video on Wednesday. If you were able to join me or watched the replay, thank you. If you’d like to watch my video and stamp along, the measurements are below along with the links to my Facebook page and my YouTube channel. Here is my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Brightest Beauty Fun Fold 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Brightest Beauty Bundle along with the Pretty Prints Designer Series Paper for my card today.

Stampin' Up! Brightest Beauty Fun Fold 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by scoring a Petal Pink card base at 2 1/8″ & 4 1/4″. I measured from the top of the card front down 3″ and made a small pencil mark. I cut from the 3″ pencil mark to the top of the 4 1/4″ score line using my Paper Trimmer.

Stampin' Up! Brightest Beauty Fun Fold 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

I took 1 of the 4″ X 5 1/4″ panels of Pretty Prints DSP and on the left side I made a small pencil mark at 2 7/8″ down from the top. I cut from the 2 7/8″ mark to the top right corner. I cut the panel in half at 2″. I adhered the panels to the Petal Pink card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On the part of the card base that is showing, I stamped the geometric image from the Stampin’ Up! Brightest Beauty Photopolymer Stamp Set in Petal Pink Ink. On a small panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Brightest Beauty stamp set in Calypso Coral Ink. I cut the sentiment out using the Golden Beauty Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Festive Pearls to the sentiment.

Stampin' Up! Brightest Beauty Fun Fold 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the leaf image from the Brightest Beauty stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink. I stamped the flower fill image from the Brightest Beauty stamp set in Petal Pink Ink. I cut the image using my Golden Beauty Dies. I adhered the floral image to the front panel of the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I tied a small bow around the bottom of the floral image using my Simply Elegant Trim.

Stampin' Up! Brightest Beauty Fun Fold 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside, I adhered a panel of Pretty Prints DSP to a Calypso Coral mat and then to the inside of the Petal Pink card base. I cut a panel of Basic White cardstock from 1 1/4″down on right side up to top left corner. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Artistically Inked Cling Stamp Set in Calypso Coral Ink on the top of the panel. I stamped the geometric image from the Brightest Beauty stamp set in Petal Pink Ink around the sentiment. I adhered the Basic White panel to the inside of the card base.

Stampin' Up! Brightest Beauty Fun Fold 6 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 the same as I did for the card on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of Pretty Prints DSP to the envelope flap.
