Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tropical CAS

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone’s weekend going? I worked all day yesterday and I’ll be working at the dog boutique today.

I have a quick and easy card with a simple layout for you today using a set that I haven’t pulled out in a while. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tropical Cling Stamp Set for my card today.

I started by stamping the large hibiscus flower from the Timeless Tropical stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I masked the image using a Post-It note and stamped the leaf image from the Timeless Tropical stamp set around the flower.

I colored the flower in using my Polished Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers and the leaves in using my Just Jade Stampin’ Blends Markers. I brushed the flower using my Clear Wink of Stella to give it a shimmer. I stamped the sentiment from the Timeless Tropical stamp set on the top of the panel in Tuxedo Black Ink. I adhered the artwork to a Just Jade mat using Stampin’ Seal.

I adhered the matted panel to a Basic White card front using Stampin’ Seal and then to the front of a Basic White card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Matte Black Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Timeless Tropical stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the leaf image from the Timeless Tropical stamp set on the sides of the panel and colored them in using my Just Jade Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Just Jade 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 hibiscus and the leaves from the Timeless Tropical stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I colored the images in using my Just Jade and Polished Pink Stampn’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of the Just Jade 2020-2022 6 X 6 In-Color 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! Tasteful Touches Black and White

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends. Hope you have a fun weekend planned. I’ll be at work both days this weekend.

Today’s card is another one that we made at my class last week. Everyone’s card came out a little different. Here’s my card for today.

We used the Stampin’ Up! Tasteful Touches Cling Stamp Set for our card along with some of the retiring True Love Designer Series Paper.

I started by embossing a Basic White card front using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered a panel of the True Love DSP to the side using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the card front to a Basic White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped the flower, sentiment and feather images from the Tasteful Touches stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I cut the images out using my Stitched Rectangle Dies.

I adhered the rectangles to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Matte Black Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Tasteful Touches stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the flower image from the Tasteful Touches stamp set on the bottom of the panel in Tuxedo Black Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Basic Black mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Basic White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the flower image from the Tasteful Touches stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the True Love DSP to the envelope flap.

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!!

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.

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

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 Friend Like You Inside Out card for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Are you ready for the weekend? I’ll be working both days this weekend again. Saturday at the hardware store and Sunday at the dog bakery. Of course it’s suppose to be a beautiful weekend so I’m sure both places will be crazy busy.

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’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Friend Like You Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Artistry Blooms Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by adhering a panel of Artistry Blooms DSP to a Night of Navy mat using Stampin’ Seal. I stamped the sentiment from the Friend Like You stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock which I cut using the Tasteful Labels Dies. I stamped the dragonfly image from the Friend Like You stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on the side of the sentiment. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Artistry Blooms Adhesive-Backed Sequins to the card front. I tied a small bow using the 1/8″ Night of Navy ribbon from the Playing With Patterns Ribbon Combo Pack and adhered it to the sentiment using a Glue Dot.

For the card base I scored a 9 1/2″ X 5 1/2″ panel of Thick Basic White cardstock at 4 1/4″, 4 3/4″ and 5 1/4″. I folded the card base in half on the 4 3/4″ score line. I folded the card base back on the 4 1/4″ & 5 1/4″ score lines. I adhered the center together using Tear & Tape.

On one side of the inside (which will be the outside), I adhered a panel of Artistry Blooms DSP using Multipurpose Liquid glue. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from Friend Like You stamp set in Night of Navy Ink in the center of the panel. I stamped the grass image from the Friend Like You stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the dragonfly mage from the Friend Like You stamp set in Night of Navy Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel on top of the Artistry Blooms DSP using Stampin’ Seal.

On the other side of the inside I adhered another panel of Artistry Blooms DSP using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Friend Like You stamp set in Night of Navy Ink. I stamped the palm tree image from the Friend Like You stamp set on the bottom of the panel using Soft Suede and Granny Apple Green Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel on top of the Artistry Blooms DSP using Stampin’ Seal.

Using my Friendly Silhouette Dies and cut 2 of the floral dies from a panel of Basic White cardstock and one of the cattail dies from a panel of Granny Apple Green cardstock. I colored the cattails in using my Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers. I colored the floral dies in using my Bermuda Bay, Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight, Flirty Flamingo, Granny Apple Green, Highland Heather, Poppy Parade and Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the cattail die behind one of the floral dies using Glue Dots. I adhered the floral die to one side of the raised cardstock using Multipurpose Liquid glue. I adhered the double die to the back side of the raised cardstock using Multipurpose Liquid Glue making sure it is facing forward. I added a couple Artistry Blooms Adhesive-Backed Sequins to both of the Basic White panels by the sentiments.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the palm trees and dragonflies images from the Friend Like You on the envelope front in Granny Apple Green, Night of Navy and Soft Suede Inks. I adhered a panel of the Artistry Blooms 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. The list of measurements are below if you’d like to stamp along while watching the video. You can watch my video on my Facebook page Here.

Stampin’ Up! Flowering Cactus Friendship Card

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends. How has everyone’s week started off? Before I get to my card for today, I want to wish my very special fur baby a Happy 13th Birthday. I ordered her a special birthday cupcake from the Hungry Hound (one of my other jobs). She’ll be getting that later tonight after she eats her dinner 😉

This was 2008 when we first got Jasmine. Little girl with big paws.
She used to love laying on the last step watching everything/everyone go by
One of her favorite places to lay during the spring/summer
Her most recent picture in her new bed. She never liked beds till this year

Ok, on to my card for today. I used one of my favorite sets from the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog for today’s card the Stampin’ Up! Flowering Cactus Product Medley. I don’t usually purchase the kits, but when I saw this one I just knew I needed it. Here’s my card for today.

My colors are from Fab Friday Challenge #208.

My design is from Just Add Ink Challenge #543.

I also joined in with Hand Stamped Sentiments Inspiration Challenge #358.

I started by cutting 9 rectangles from 2 different panels of the Flowering Cactus Designer Series Paper using my Stitched Rectangle Dies and adhering them to a Mossy Meadow card front using Multipurpose Liquid glue. I adhered the card front to a Mint Macaron card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

In the Flowering Cactus DSP there is a panel that has all of the cactus and flowers to match up with the Flowering Cactus Dies. I cut everything out since I wasn’t sure what I was planning on using . I cut a panel of Vellum using my Stitched Shapes Dies and adhered it to the center of the card front using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered one of the die cut cactus to the Vellum using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the Highland Heather cactus flowers to the cactus using Glue Dots.

On a strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Flowering Cactus Photopolymer Stamp Set in Mossy Meadow Ink. I adhered the sentiment to the bottom of the cactus using Glue Dots and Stampin’ Dimensionals. I tied a double bow using the Calypso Coral Linen Thread, that comes in the Flowering Cactus Product Medley, and adhered it using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Flowering Cactus stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the smallest cactus from the Flowering Cactus stamp set next to the sentiment in Mossy Meadow Ink and the flowers in Calypso Coral Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Mossy Meadow mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Mint Macaron card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic white Medium Envelope. I stamped the smallest cactus from the Flowering Cactus stamp set across the bottom front of the envelope in Mossy Meadow and Calypso Coral Inks. I adhered a panel of the Flowering Cactus 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!!
