Stampin’ Up! Desert Details for The Card Concepts

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. I hope everyone’s week is going well. We’re halfway through and on our way to the weekend.

It’s time for an inspiration challenge from The Card Concepts. The inspiration photo #186 is Holiday Gatherings.  Here is my card that was inspired from the challenge photo.

Stampin' Up! Desert Details 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Desert Details Bundle along with the Delicate Desert Designer Series Paper for my card today. I was inspired by the colors for my clean & layered card.

I hope you will take a moment to visit The Card Concepts and join us for our challenge #186.  How are you inspired by the photos?

Stampin' Up! Desert Details 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by adhering a panel of Delicate Desert DSP to a Cajun Craze card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I cut a panel of Evening Evergreen cardstock into a banner using my Paper Snips. I adhered the banner to the card front using Stampin’ Seal.

I embossed a panel of Basic White cardstock using the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the panel to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered a panel of Dry Brushed Metallic Specialty Designer Series Paper across the layers using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Desert Details 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the large flower image from the Stampin’ Up! Desert Details Cling Stamp Set in Cajun Craze Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper. I stamped the sentiment from the Desert Details stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink over the flower image. I cut the image out using the Desert Details Dies. Using the Desert Details Dies, I cut 2 of the aloe die from a panel of Evening Evergreen cardstock. I adhered the aloe to the card front using Glue Dots. I adhered the flower over the aloe using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Gold Faceted Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Desert Details stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the small flower image from the Desert Details stamp set on either side of the sentiment in Cajun Craze Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper. I adhered a strip of Delicate Desert DSP on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to an Evening Evergreen mat then to the inside of the Cajun Craze card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the large flower image from the Desert Details stamp set on the envelope front in Cajun Craze Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper. I stamped the sentiment from the Desert Details stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink over the flower image. I adhered a panel of Delicate Desert DSP to the envelope flap.

In response to changing policies at Stampin’ Up – I’m adjusting my Ordering Gift policy as well.  I’m having to get a little more tough on the adding of Host codes when you place your order thru my Online Store.

Not to worry – you’re still going to get that $10 ordering gift for orders of $50 (before shipping & tax) or greater.  And the gift is still any 1 SU! product up to that $10 value – which includes some of our fun Host Sets!

But – if you DO NOT use the Host code for your orders of less than $150 (this is the RETAIL total before Shipping & Handling), then you’ll have two options:

  1. You’ll need to call Stampin’ Up! (1-800-Stamp-Up) and ask them to add it for you. They’re very helpful and will get it done quickly!  OR….
  2. If your order was over the $50 threshold but under $150, then…you’ll forfeit that $10 ordering gift and rewards – this is the Bummer Option – and I REALLY don’t want to do this, SO please remember to add my Current Host Code.

Stampin’ Up! Adorable Owls for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my last Fun Fold Friday for 2022. Another year gone (and I won’t miss this one), and a new one starting on Sunday. Has anyone made plans yet for New Year’s Eve? I’m pretty sure we’ll be spending it at home. I’m not sure if we’re having company or not yet.

Today’s card is one that I haven’t done in a while, and I really like doing. Sorry I missed doing my live on Wednesday again. I’m usually out of work by noon on Wednesday’s and when 2pm came around and I was still there, I just knew there was no way I was going to be able to go live. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Adorable Owls Fun Fold 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Adorable Owls Sale-a-bration Cling Stamp Set and the Dandy Design Sale-a-bration Designer Series Paper for my card today. Both items will be available starting January 5, FREE, with qualifying order.

Stampin' Up! Adorable Owls Fun Fold 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by cutting my card base by putting the short edge of the cardstock on the bottom of the Paper Trimmer lined up at the 3″ mark on my Paper Trimmer. I placed the blade at the 3″ mark and cut to 3/4″. I turned the cardstock in the Paper Trimmer, so the long edge was on the bottom lined up at the 3″ mark. I cut from the cut line (which is at 2 1/2″) up to the 5″ mark. I carefully flipped the cut panel around and folded it down.

Stampin' Up! Adorable Owls Fun Fold 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

I cut a panel of Coastal Cabana cardstock by lining up the long-left side of the paper at the 3/4″ mark on my Paper Trimmer. I cut down 3″. I turned the cardstock so the long edge was on the bottom of the Paper Trimmer lined up at the 3″ mark and I cut down to cut the panel off. I cheated for the Dandy Design DSP since no one can see it. I lined up the DSP on the Coastal Cabana mat and using my pencil I drew a line where it needed to be cut and cut the panel off. I adhered the Dandy Design DSP to the Coastal Cabana mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue making sure there was equal mat around the 3 sides. I adhered the layered panel to the card front, under the cut panel, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I used a couple Stampin’ Dimensionals to hold the flipped panel in place.

Stampin' Up! Adorable Owls Fun Fold 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the flying owl image from the Adorable Owls stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image using my Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Flirty Flamingo, Pool Party and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the sentiment from the Adorable Owls stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the corner of the panel. I adhered the artwork to a Coastal Cabana mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few of the new Opaque Adhesive-Backed Gems, which will be available January 5, to the card front.

Stampin' Up! Adorable Owls Fun Fold 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Adorable Owl stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I blocked off the bottom of the sentiment, so I just got the top portion using washi tape. I adhered a strip of the Dandy Design DSP to the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic Whtie panel to a Coastal Cabana mat then to the inside of the Pool Party card base.

Stampin' Up! Adorable Owls Fun Fold 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the owl image from the Adorable Owls stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and colored it the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of Dancy Design DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Sweet Citrus

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend and Christmas? Is anyone lucky enough to the day off today? I’m heading into work shortly, but I have to go to PT first. I don’t think I’ve ever had the 26th of December off for as long as I can reemeber.

I played with some new product for today’s card. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Sweet Citrus 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Sweet Citrus Bundle, available Jan 5, 2023, for my card today. This is such a fun set to play with. You can make lemons, limes, oranges and grapefruits out of the images.

Stampin' Up! Sweet Citrus 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by embossing a panel of Basic White cardstock using the Sweet Citrus Hybrid 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the embossed panel to a Pale Papaya mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered a Basic White panel to a Pale Papaya mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to a Basic White Thick card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Sweet Citrus 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

I decided to make my fruit into a grapefruit. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the outline of the fruit image from the Sweet Citrus stamp set in Pale Papaya Ink. I stamped the inside fruit image from the Sweet Citrus stamp set in Flirty Flamingo Ink. I stamped the leaf image in Granny Apple Green Ink. I cut the images out using my Sweet Citrus Dies.

Stampin' Up! Sweet Citrus 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

I adhered the images to the embossed panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the leaves behind the fruit using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On a strip of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Sweet Citrus stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink. I adhered the sentiment below the fruit using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Pale Papaya 2021-2023 In-Color Opal Rounds to the card front. I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Sweet Citrus 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Sweet Citrus stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the fruit outline image from the Sweet Citrus stamp set on the bottom of the panel in Pale Papaya Ink. I stamped the fruit fill image in Flirty Flamingo Ink. I stamped the leaf image in Granny Apple Green Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Pale Papaya mat then to the inside of the Basic Whtie Thick card base.

In response to changing policies at Stampin’ Up – I’m adjusting my Ordering Gift policy as well.  I’m having to get a little more tough on the adding of Host codes when you place your order thru my Online Store.

Not to worry – you’re still going to get that $10 ordering gift for orders of $50 (before shipping & tax) or greater.  And the gift is still any 1 SU! product up to that $10 value – which includes some of our fun Host Sets!

But – if you DO NOT use the Host code for your orders of less than $150 (this is the RETAIL total before Shipping & Handling), then you’ll have two options:

  1. You’ll need to call Stampin’ Up! (1-800-Stamp-Up) and ask them to add it for you. They’re very helpful and will get it done quickly!  OR….
  2. If your order was over the $50 threshold but under $150, then…you’ll forfeit that $10 ordering gift and rewards – this is the Bummer Option – and I REALLY don’t want to do this, SO please remember to add my Current Host Code.

If you are a customer of mine, you should have received your catalogs. If you are not a customer yet and would like to be, please send me an email with your name and address stating that you would like a copy of the new January-April 2023 Mini Catalog.

I’m offering a Designer Series Paper share from the January-April 2023 Mini Catalog, and I’d love to have you join!!  I’m placing my share order early on January 5 and I’m going to use the expedited shipping option so I should be able to have the shares cut, bundled and back out to you during the week of January 9.

How shares work:  I order full packs of all of the Designer Series Papers listed below, I cut them into 6″ x 6″ pieces (or 6″ x 12″ pieces for double shares) and give you one panel of each design from each pack on the list.  I pack up the paper in a cellophane bag and mail it back out to you just as quickly as I can!  Shares give you a good working sample of all of the papers so that you can decide which ones to order in full packs! Designer Series Paper Shares Do Not earn my Creative Stamping Designs Rewards.

Here are the Designer Series Paper Shares that I am offering from the new Mini Catalog:

New Designer Series Paper Share – $27.00 plus $8.00 for Priority Mail shipping

You will receive one 6×6 sheet of each design from the following DSP and specialty paper packs (the number behind the name indicates how many 6×6 sheets of that paper pack you will receive):

In all, you’ll receive 89 – 6” x 6” sheets of designer or speciality paper!

Double DSP Share – $54.00 + $8.00 Shipping by Priority Mail – I’ll cut the designer paper sheets into 6×12 so that you’ll be able to get three A2 size card fronts from each sheet (except for the By The Bay, Country Gingham, Fancy Flora and Regency Park, you’ll get double sheets of those since they’re already precut).

FREE Gift From Me! – As a bonus for joining my share, you’ll also get a sampler of the Sale-a-bration Designer Series Paper Packs!  I’ll send each participant in my share a sampler of papers from the Dainty Flowers, Day At The Farm, Favored Flowers and Dandy Designs Sale-a-bration DSP packs!

Anyone is welcome to join in my share (please note, I can only ship to addresses within the US).  If you’d like to join, email the following information to creativestampingdesigns@gmail.com.

  • Your first and last name
  • Your address for Paper Shares to be shipped to
  • The email address that is connected to your Paypal account. I only accept Paypal for payment unless you are a customer of mine.  If you are a customer, I will accept payment by check.  ***You do not need to have a Paypal account to pay the invoice, you can choose to pay by credit card without having a Paypal account.

Stampin’ Up! True Beauty for The Happy Ikin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. If you are starting with me, thank you. I hope you will stop by everyone’s blog to see what they have created this week. If you are hopping over from Karen’s blog, thank you for stopping by. This week we have Color Challenge. Here is my card using this week’s colors.

Stampin' Up! True Beauty Just Because 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Awash In Beauty Suite for my card today.

These are our colors for this week.

Stampin' Up! True Beauty Just Because 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by cutting a panel of Blushing Bride Brushstroke Specialty Paper using the lattice die from the Organic Beauty Dies. I adhered the die cut to a Merry Merlot card base.

Stampin' Up! True Beauty Just Because 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

Using the Organic Beauty Dies, I cut panels of Granny Apple Green, Mossy Meadow and Shimmer White cardstock. I cut one of the larger floral images from a panel of Awash In Beauty Designer Series Paper using my Paper Snips. I adhered the sprigs to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the fussy cut floral image using Stampin’ Dimensionals over the sprigs.

Stampin' Up! True Beauty Just Because 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! True Beauty Cling Stamp Set in Merry Merlot Ink. I cut the sentiment out using the Stylish Shapes Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using a Stampin’ Dimensional and Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I added a few Iridescent Pearl Basic Jewels to the card front.

Stampin' Up! True Beauty Just Because 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the True Beauty stamp set in Merry Merlot Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the flower stem image from the True Beauty stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper, on the side of the panel. I stamped the flower image from the True Beauty stamp set in Blushing Bride Ink on the stem. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Blushing Bride mat then to the inside of the Merry Merlot card base.

Stampin' Up! True Beauty Just Because 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the stem and flower images from the True Beauty stamp set in Granny Apple Green and Blushing Bride Inks on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of Awash In Beauty DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Prints Triple Time Stamping

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. I hope your weekend is going well. By the time you read this hopefully I’ll be a few batches in on my baking.

Last week was my Stamp Camp Card Class and I decided to do a little technique with the ladies, one of my favorites to be exact. We did the Triple Time Stamping Technique. Today’s card is the one that we made, and I believe all the ladies loved it. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Nature's Prints 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Prints Cling Stamp Set from the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog for my card today.

Stampin' Up! Nature's Prints 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by lightly adhering the 2 smaller panels of Basic White cardstock to the larger panel using a tiny amount of Stampin’ Seal. You don’t want to add a lot because you really don’t want it to stick permanently. I put the seal on the back and blot it on my pants to get most of the stickiness off. I stamped the sentiment from the Nature’s Prints stamp set first in Gray Granite Ink on the smallest panel. I then randomly stamped the foliage image around the panel in Gray Granite, Orchid Oasis and Soft Succulent Inks. I stamped the splotch image from the Nature’s Prints stamp set in Pale Papaya Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper, around the foliage images.

Stampin' Up! Nature's Prints 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

I took the Basic White panels apart and adhered the smaller panels to Orchid Oasis mats. I adhered the layered panels to the Basic White panel using Stampin’ Seal, making sure the images matched up.

Stampin' Up! Nature's Prints 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

I wrapped a piece of Orchid Oasis 1/8″ Woven Metallic Ribbon around the layered panel and tied a bow. I adhered the card front panel to an Orchid Oasis card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few 2021-2023 In-Color Opal Rounds to the card front.

Stampin' Up! Nature's Prints 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from Nature’s Prints stamp set in Gray Granite Ink on a panel of Basic White. I stamped the images from the Nature’s Prints stamp set around the panel in Gray Granite, Orchid Oasis, Pale Papaya and Soft Succulent Inks. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Gray Granite mat then to the inside of the Orchid Oasis card base.

Stampin' Up! Nature's Prints 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the images from the Nature’s Prints stamp set on the envelope front and flap in Gray Granite, Orchid Oasis, Pale Papaya and Soft Succulent Inke.

January – April 2023 Mini Catalog Designer Series Paper Share

I’m offering a Designer Series Paper share from the January-April 2023 Mini Catalog and I’d love to have you join!!  I’m placing my share order early on January 5 and I’m going to use the expedited shipping option so I should be able to have the shares cut, bundled and back out to you during the week of January 9.

How shares work:  I order full packs of all of the Designer Series Papers listed below, I cut them into 6″ x 6″ pieces (or 6″ x 12″ pieces for double shares) and give you one panel of each design from each pack on the list.  I pack up the paper in a cellophane bag and mail it back out to you just as quickly as I can!  Shares give you a good working sample of all of the papers so that you can decide which ones to order in full packs! Designer Series Paper Shares Do Not earn my Creative Stamping Designs Rewards.

Here are the Designer Series Paper Shares that I am offering from the new Mini Catalog:

New Designer Series Paper Share – $27.00 plus $8.00 for Priority Mail shipping

You will receive one 6×6 sheet of each design from the following DSP and specialty paper packs (the number behind the name indicates how many 6×6 sheets of that paper pack you will receive):

  • By The Bay 6″ x 6″ Specialty – 12
  • Country Floral – 6
  • Country Gingham 6″ x 6″ – 6
  • Delicate Desert – 6
  • Dry Brush Metallic – 2
  • Enjoy The Journey – 6
  • Fancy Flora 6″ x 6″ – 12

  • Vellum Basics Specialty – 3

In all, you’ll receive 89 – 6” x 6” sheets of designer or speciality paper!

Double DSP Share – $54.00 + $8.00 Shipping by Priority Mail – I’ll cut the designer paper sheets into 6×12 so that you’ll be able to get three A2 size card fronts from each sheet (except for the By The Bay, Country Gingham, Fancy Flora and Regency Park, you’ll get double sheets of those since they’re already precut).

FREE Gift From Me! – As a bonus for joining my share, you’ll also get a sampler of the Sale-a-bration Designer Series Paper Packs!  I’ll send each participant in my share a sampler of papers from the Dainty Flowers, Day At The Farm, Favored Flowers and Dandy Designs Sale-a-bration DSP packs!

Stampin’ Up! Desert Details for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. If you are starting with me, thank you. I hope you will stop by everyone’s blog to see what they have created this week. If you are hopping over from Akiko’s blog, thank you for stopping by. This week we have Sketch Challenge. Here is my card using this week’s sketch.

Stampin' Up! Desert Details 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the New Stampin’ Up! Desert Details Bundle along with the Delicate Desert Designer Series Paper for my card today. These products will be available in the upcoming January – April 2023 Mini Catalog starting January 5, 2023.

This is our sketch for this week.

Stampin' Up! Desert Details 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by adhering 2 strips of the new Dry Brushed Metallic Specialty Designer Series Paper to the top and bottom of a Pale Papaya card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered a panel of the Delicate Desert DSP to the center of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I stamped the large flower image from the Stampin’ Up! Desert Details Cling Stamp Set on the DSP card front. I inked the flower image with Soft Succulent Ink and used my Sponge Dauber to add some Evening Evergreen Ink around the edges.

Stampin' Up! Desert Details 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the large flower image from the Desert Details stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink adding Evening Evergreen Ink to the edges using my Sponge Dauber. I cut the image out using my Desert Details Dies.

Stampin' Up! Desert Details 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

From a panel of Soft Succulent cardstock, I cut the aloe die from the Desert Details Dies. I adhered the die cut flower and aloe to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. On a strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Desert Details stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink. I adhered the sentiment to the card front over the die cut images using Glue Dots. I added a few of the new Gold Faceted Adhesive-Backed Sequins to the card front.

Stampin' Up! Desert Details 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Desert Details stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the large flower image from the Desert Details stamp set on the bottom of the panel in Soft Succulent Ink using my Sponge Dauber to edge the flower in Evening Evergreen Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Calypso Coral mat then to the inside of the Pale Papaya card base.

Stampin' Up! Desert Details 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the flower image from the Desert Details stamp set on the envelope front in Soft Succulent Ink. I adhered a panel of the Delicate Desert DSP to the envelope flap.

In response to changing policies at Stampin’ Up – I’m adjusting my Ordering Gift policy as well.  I’m having to get a little more tough on the adding of Host codes when you place your order thru my Online Store.

Not to worry – you’re still going to get that $10 ordering gift for orders of $50 (before shipping & tax) or greater.  And the gift is still any 1 SU! product up to that $10 value – which includes some of our fun Host Sets!

But – if you DO NOT use the Host code for your orders of less than $150 (this is the RETAIL total before Shipping & Handling), then you’ll have two options:

  1. You’ll need to call Stampin’ Up! (1-800-Stamp-Up) and ask them to add it for you. They’re very helpful and will get it done quickly!  OR….
  2. If your order was over the $50 threshold but under $150, then…you’ll forfeit that $10 ordering gift and rewards – this is the Bummer Option – and I REALLY don’t want to do this, SO please remember to add my Current Host Code.

Stampin’ Up! Framed Florets for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s Thanksgiving? Did everyone make sure to wear stretchy pants before sitting down for dinner? Ours was very nice and quiet and I didn’t overeat. Today is one of those days I DO NOT go out shopping. I pack up all my normal everyday decorations, move my furniture around for the holidays and start bringing my hundreds of boxes of Christmas decorations out of my attic. I used to take the weekend off from work to do all my decorating but being in retail it’s hard to take both days off, so I get just about everything done in 1 day.

I have a quick fun fold for you today using another one of my favorite sets. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Framed Florets Bundle along with the Fitting Florets Designer Series Paper. Don’t forget that this DSP is only available while supplies last. The beautiful Gold Swirls have already sold out.

I started scoring and folding a Balmy Blue card base at 1 1/4″ & 5 1/2″. I adhered a panel of Fitting Florets DSP to an Evening Evergreen mat. I adhered the layered panel to the left front panel of the Balmy Blue card base.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Framed Florets stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink. I cut the sentiment out using the Lasting Label Punch. From a panel of White Glimmer paper from the Red & White 6 X 6 Glimmer Paper, I cut out 2 sprigs using the Framed Florets Dies. Using my Blending Brush, I added some Evening Evergreen Ink. I cut 5 of the leave from the Framed Florets Dies from the colored panel. I adhered the sprigs to the card front. I adhered the sentiment over the sprigs using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the leaves under the sentiment. I added a few Festive Pearls to the card front.

I adhered a panel of Fitting Florets DSP to an Evening Evergreen mat. I adhered the layered panel to the narrow-folded right side of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Framed Florets stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the flower and leaf images from the Framed Florets stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink by the sentiment. I colored the images in using my Balmy Blue and Evening Evergreen Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to an Evening Evergreen mat then to the inside of the Balmy Blue card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the flower and leaf images from the Framed Florets stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the Envelope front and colored them with my Balmy Blue and Evening Evergreen Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of Fitting Florets DSP to the envelope flap.

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

Stampin’ Up! Framed Florets for Fun Folds Blog Hop

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends, welcome to a fun new blog hop!  It’s the Fun Folds Blog Hop for Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators!  We’ve got a talented line-up of demonstrators from all over. This is going to be a once-a-month hop and all our cards will be fun folds!!  Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Framed Florets Drapery 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the new upcoming Stampin’ Up! Framed Florets Bundle and the Fitting Florets Designer Series Paper for my card today.

Stampin' Up! Framed Florets Drapery 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by adhering a panel of Fitting Florets DSP to the top of a Polished Pink mat. I scored, cut & folded the panel of Fitting Florets DSP (as in diagram below) and adhered it to the bottom of the Polished Pink mat. I wrapped a piece of Balmy Blue 3/8″ Double Stitched Ribbon around the card front on the seams of the DSP and adhered it to the back using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the card front to a Soft Succulent card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Here is my template for the drapery fold.

Stampin' Up! Framed Florets Drapery 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a small panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Framed Florets Photopolymer Stamp Set in Polished Pink Ink. I fussy cut the sentiment using my Paper Snips. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Framed Florets Drapery 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the floral image from the Framed Florets stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image using my Balmy Blue, Polished Pink and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image out using the Framed Florets Dies. I adhered the floral image to the card front over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few of the new Gold Adhesive-Backed Swirls to the card front.

Stampin' Up! Framed Florets Drapery 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Framed Florets stamp set in Polished Pink Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the floral image from the Framed Florets stamp set on the bottom of the panel in Tuxedo Black Ink and colored it using my Balmy Blue, Polished Pink and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Polished Pink mat then to the inside of the Soft Succulent card base.

Stampin' Up! Framed Florets Drapery 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the floral image from the Framed Florets stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and colored it the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of Fitting Florets DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Fond of Autumn for 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. I hope you will stop by everyone’s blog to see what they have created this week. If you are hopping over from Akiko’s blog, thank you for stopping by. This week we have Sketch Challenge. Here is my card using this week’s Sketch.

Stampin' Up! Fond of Autumn 1 creativestmpingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Fond of Autumn Bundle along with the Rustic Harvest Designer Series Paper for my card today.

Here’s our sketch for this week.

Stampin' Up! Fond of Autumn 2 creativestmpingdesigns.com

I started by adhering a panel of Rustic Harvest DSP to a Pumpkin Pie mat. I adhered the layered panel to a Mossy Meadow card base using Multipurpose Liquid Gue.

Stampin' Up! Fond of Autumn 3 creativestmpingdesigns.com

On the large panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the large image from the Stampin’ Up! Fond of Autumn Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink twice. I stamped the small acorn image from the Fond of Autumn stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink 3 times and the small leaf image 2 times. I cut the images out using the Autumn Bouquet Dies. I colored just the leaf/acorn images using my Mossy Meadow, Pumpkin Pie, Real Red and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the large leaf/acorn images to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Fond of Autumn 4 creativestmpingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Fond of Autumn stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink. I cut the sentiment out using the Deckled Rectangle Dies. I embossed the panel using the Leaf Fall 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the sentiment to a Pumpkin Pie mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added the small acorns and leaves to the sentiment using Glue Dots. I added a Brushed Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dot to the sentiment.

Stampin' Up! Fond of Autumn 5 creativestmpingdesigns.com

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Fond of Autumn stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the small acorn and leaf image from the Fond of Autumn stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink in the corners of the panel. I colored the images in using my Pumpkin Pie and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Pumpkin Pie mat then to the inside of the Mossy Meadow card base.

Stampin' Up! Fond of Autumn 6 creativestmpingdesigns.com

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the small acorn and leaf images from the Fond of Autumn stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I colored the images using my Pumpkin Pie and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of Rustic Harvest DSP to the envelope flap.

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.

Stampin' Up! All Bundled Up 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

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.

Stampin' Up! All Bundled Up 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

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.

Stampin' Up! All Bundled Up 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

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.

Stampin' Up! All Bundled Up 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

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.

Available Now!!

Some things are great on their own but become epic when they are paired with something else: cereal and milk, toast and butter, Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. We may be biased, but our favorite combo is our stamp sets and dies—and that’s what the Perfect Partners promotion is all about! 

We created six new dies that coordinate with stamp sets in the 2022–2023 Annual Catalog and the July–December 2022 Mini Catalog. These coordinating dies will only be available during this promotion and will not be offered in any catalog.
