Stampin’ Up All Adorned

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers.  So how was everyone’s week?  Have we made any plans for the weekend?  This is your LAST weekend to get any Sale-A-Bration items.  I’m really going to miss some of the stamp sets.

For today’s card, I’m finishing out the week as promised, with another Sale-A-Bration stamp set.  I have to admit, I didn’t jump at this set, until I first saw it used and then I had to have it.  It’s the Stampin’ Up All Adorned Stamp Set and I paired it up with the Painted Seasons Designer Series Paper.  Take a look.

I was able to include my card in 2 challenges also.  First is the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #309.  Be sure to stop by their blog to play along and see what everyone has made.  Here’s their sketch for the week.

Next up is Sunday Stamps Easter Hues Color Challenge #201.  They have some gorgeous projects on their blog, be sure to stop by.  Here are their colors.

I started with a Pool Party card base and adhered a panel of Painted Seasons Designer Series Paper (Sale-A-Bration item) to the front using Snail.  I adhered a strip of Highland Heather cardstock using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped the sentiment from the All Adorned stamp set (Sale-A-Bration item) in Highland Heather Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  Using my Big Shot, I cut the sentiment out using the 2nd largest square from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.  Using the Layering Squares Framelits Dies, I cut the Balmy Blue cardstock one size larger than the stitched square and I cut the So Saffron scalloped square one size larger than the Balmy Blue.  I adhered the 3 squares together using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and adhered them to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a small Mint Macaron bow made from the Nature’s Twine and I added a couple Mint Macaron Faceted Dots to the artwork.

On the inside I stamped the corner image from the All Adorned stamp set in the corners of a Whisper White panel with Pool Party Ink.  My Stamparatus really helped with this.  I just lined the cardstock up with the Small Grid Paper for my Stamparatus and turned it and lined it up with the same lines stamping all 4 corners perfectly.  It took me a while to get the hang of the Stamparatus, but once I did, I love it.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Part Of My Story Stamp Set (Sale-A-Bration item) in the center with Highland Heather Ink. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Highland Heather mat using Snail and then adhered it to the inside of the Pool Party card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I was having so much un with my All Adorned stamp set I decided to use another one of the stamps on the envelope front.  It’s 2-steps so I stamped the first step in Highland Heather Ink across the bottom of the envelope front, then I stamped the second step in Mint Macaron Ink.  I adhered a panel of the Painted Seasons 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 Home To Roost

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  Hope everyone is having a wonderful week.

For the card I made for today I went out of my comfort zone.  I was actually pretty pleased with how it turned out.  I’m not really into chickens or farming, but I said I was going to feature a different Sal-A-Bration item each day this week.  We’re getting down to the wire for getting free items.  Here is my card for today.

After I was done, I saw the Hand Stamped Sentiments sketch challenge #311 and thought that this might qualify.  Here is their sketch.

I started with a piece of the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper (FREE Sale-A-Bration item) and cut it into 1″ strips.  I adhered the DSP onto a Poppy Parade card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue so that I would have a little wiggle room to line the strips up.

I stamped the rooster from the Stampin’ Up Home To Roost Stamp Set (FREE Sale-A-Bration item) in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a small piece of Whisper White cardstock. I colored the rooster in using my Cajun Craze, Mango Melody, Poppy Parade, Pumpkin Pie and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers.  Then using my Big Shot, I cut the image out with my Layering Ovals Framelits Dies.  I also cut out the scalloped oval that was just a little larger in Poppy Parade cardstock.  I adhered the artwork to the scalloped oval using Multipurpose Liquid Glue then to my card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the flower from the Stampin’ Up Colorful Seasons Stamp Set in Poppy Parade Ink.  I stamped the flowers 4 times without reinking to get the Ombre effect.  I cut the flowers out with my Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies and my Big Shot.  I adhered the flowers to the right side of the artwork using Glue Dots and Mini Stampn’ Dimensionals.  I stamped the sentiment from the Home To Roost stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a strip of Vellum paper and adhered it over the artwork using Glue Dots.  I adhered the card front to a Poppy Parade card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the grassy image from the Home To Roost stamp set in Old Olive Ink, stamping off twice, to a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink above the grass.  I adhered some more of the flowers I had stamped and cut out using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Poppy Parade card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the grass and the rooster from the Home To Roost stamp set on the front of the envelope in Old Olive and Tuxedo Black Memento Inks.  I adhered a piece of the Botanical Butterfly DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for taking the time to stop by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try.  This card used 2 of the FREE Sale-A-Bration items that are available with a $50 order.  Sale-A-Bration ends on Sunday, so don’t delay.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up Lovely Lattice

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  How has your week started off?

For today’s card I used 4 Sale-A-Bration items that will only be around for less than a week now.  Here’s my card.

I was able to join in with a few challenges with my card today.  First is Just Add Ink Colour Challenge #449.  Here are their beautiful vibrant colors

Next we have Stampin’ Up Only Coloring Challenge # 219

Next I played along with TGIF Product Spotlight Challenge #204

I started with a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the large image from the Stampin’ Up Lovely Lattice Stamp Set (FREE Sale-A-Bration item) in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center.  I colored the image in using my Bermuda Bay and Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I adhered the artwork with Multipurpose Liquid Glue to a Gorgeous Grape card front, which I had run through my Big Shot using the Country Floral Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (FREE Sale-A-Bration item). I adhered the card front to a Bermuda Bay card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I made a bow using the Pearlized Thread from the Share What You Love Embellishment Kit (FREE Sale-A-Bration Item). I adhered it to the artwork using a Glue Dot.  I added a Silver Adhesive Backed Rose from the same embellishment kit.

On the inside I stamped the smaller flower from the Lovely Lattice stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the 2 corners of a Whisper White panel and colored them in with my Bermuda Bay and Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Part Of My Story Stamp Set (FREE Sale-A-Bration item) in Bermuda Bay Ink on a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock.  I cut the sentiment out using my Big Shot and the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies.  Using the Story Label Punch I punched out a label in Lovely Lipstick cardstock.  I adhered the oval to the center of the label using Snail and then to the Whisper White panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Gorgeous Grape mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Bermuda Bay card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped part of the large floral image from the Lovely Lattice stamp set on the envelope front and the envelope flap in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored them in the same as I did for the card front.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. I was able to use 4 of the Sale-A-Bration items for this card.  The Lovely Lattice stamp set (1st release), Country Floral Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (2nd release), Part Of My Story stamp set (1st release) and the Share What You Love Embellishment Kit (3rd release).  You only have 6 days left to get your free items. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up Meant To Be

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  Happy 1st Day Of Spring!!!

There are less than 2 weeks left for Sale-A-Bration, yikes!  If there are still items you wanted to get, don’t wait.  Things are selling out.  They’ve added a 3rd release, you can see it below.

For today’s card I have a real quick and easy card for you.  Take a look.

I started by cutting the rectangles.  I used the 3 middle Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies along with my Big Shot and cut the largest in Lovely Lipstick cardstock, the middle one in Flirty Flamingo cardstock and the smallest one in All My Love Designer Series Paper.  Once I cut them out I layered them inside one another.

As you can see, this is a very flat card since they are inside and not layered on top of one another.  I adhered the rectangles to a Whisper White card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I just love how the stitching looks on all the rectangles.

On a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Meant To Be Stamp Set in Versamark Ink and immediately sprinkled it with my Lovely Lipstick Embossing Powder.  I heat set it using my Heat Tool then cut the circle out using my Big Shot and the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.  I also cut a scalloped circle from the Layering Circles Framelits Dies and adhered the stitched circle to it using Snail.  I adhered the circle to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and adhered a small Flirty Flamingo bow made from the All My Love Ribbon Combo Pack.  I adhered the card front to a Thick Whisper White card base.

On the inside I stamped the single flower from Stampin’ Up Forever Lovely Stamp Set in Flirty Flamingo Ink.  I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set in Lovely Lipstick Ink in the center.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the flower from the Forever Lovely stamp set on the envelope front.  I adhered a piece of All My Love DSP to the envelope flap.

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

Stampin’ Up Flowering Desert for SUO Challenge

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  How is your week going?  We’re half way through already.  Did you have a chance to hop around our Blog Hop yesterday?  If not, try to take the time to go back and see all the beautiful projects.

For today’s card I used the Stampin’ Up Flowering Desert Stamp Set.  I’ve done the Masking and Sponging Techniques on it.  I love doing both techniques.  Here’s my card.

My card was able to join in with the Stampin’ Up Only Challenge color challenge #218.  Be sure to stop by to play along and see what everyone else has made.  Here is their challenge. We are doing a fun spring color palette challenge of Granny Apple Green, Lovely Lipstick, and Pool Party, with a bonus color of Mango Melody. All neutrals are allowed.

I started with a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the cactus from the Flowering Desert stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink in the center.  I covered the image with a mask I had made from a Post-It note and fussy cut.

I stamped the mountain image from the Stampin’ Up Waterfront Stamp Set behind the cactus in Basic Gray Ink.  I then began my sponging.  I started with the bottom and sponged Crumb Cake Ink using my Stamping Sponges, up to the mountains.  I stamped the sand image from the Waterfront stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink over the sponged area.

I next sponged Pool Party Ink above the mountains followed by Mango Melody Ink, Lovely Lipstick Ink and along the top I added some Smoky Slate Ink.  As I sponged up I blended the colors together.  I stamped the flowers on the cactus in Lovely Lipstick Ink and the aloe plants in the sand in Granny Apple Green Ink.  Using my Big Shot,  I cut the artwork out using the 2nd largest Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies.  I cut a Pool Party frame out using the largest and 2nd largest Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies.  I adhered the artwork and frame to a Mango Melody card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  On a small strip of Pool Party cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Flowering Desert stamp set in Versamark Ink.  I immediately sprinkled it with my Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat set it with my Heat Tool.  I made it into a banner and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside on a Whisper White panel I stamped the cactus from the Flowering Desert stamp set in the center using Granny Apple Green Ink stamping off twice.  I stamped the flowers from the same stamp set in Lovely Lipstick Ink stamping off 3 times and the aloe plants in Granny Apple Green Ink some stamping off once and some full strength ink.  I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set in Lovely Lipstick Ink over the cactus.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Lovely Lipstick mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Mango Melody card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the front and back of the envelope with the images from the Flowering Desert stamp set.

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

The 2nd Tuesday of every month this amazing group of ladies put together a blog hop and you are guaranteed to see some gorgeous projects.  This month our theme is ‘CELEBRATE SPRING’.  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.  I’ve used the FREE with Sale-A-Bration , Painted Seasons Bundle and the Four Seasons Famelits Dies for my card today.  Here is my card for today.

I love doing Fancy Fold cards, it’s one of my favorites.  Whenever I see a different fold, I keep practicing until I get it right.  I just love the challenge of different folds.  My card has a lot of pieces to it.  All the measurements are listed below.  I started with a Pool Party panel and scored it at 5 1/4″.  Putting the short side on the edge of my Stampin’ Trimmer, I lined up the long edge at the 1″ mark.  I cut from 3″ to 7 1/2″.  I then put the long edge with the 3″ side on the edge of my Stampin’ Trimmer and the 5 1/4″ score mark to the right and scored at the 3″ mark.  Keeping the cardstock the same, I scored the 1″ piece at 7 1/2″.  I hope this makes sense to you.

Here is what it will look like once you fold on the score lines.

I adhered my Wood Textures Designer Series Paper on Petal Pink mats using Snail. I adhered my Painted Seasons Designer Series Paper on the smaller Petal Pink mats using Snail.  I adhered all the matted pieces to the scored Pool Party panel where they all fit using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the Pool Party card front to a Petal Pink card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Using my Big Shot I cut the word ‘friend’ out from the Well Written Framelit Dies in the Wood Textures DSP.  It did not photograph well, but it show up much better in person.  I adhered it to the bottom front section using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock, using my Stamparatus,  I stamped the succulent flower image from the Stampin’ Up Painted Seasons Stamp Set (FREE Sale-A-Bration item) 3 times.  I stamped 2 in Pool Party Ink and 1 in Petal Pink Ink. On the Petal Pink flower I used my Sponge Dauber and lightly went around the edges with Pool Party Ink and then stamped over the 1st image.  I did the same with the Pool Party flowers except I used Petal Pink Ink.  I stamped the leaf image from the same stamp set in Lemon Lime Twist Ink 3 times.  Using my Big Shot, I cut all the images out with my Four Seasons Framelits Dies (available for a limited time during the month of March).  I adhered 2 of the flowers and the 3 leaf images to the front section of the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals and Glue Dots.  I adhered the 3rd flower to the back section of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I wrapped a piece of Silver and Petal Pink Bakers Twine around the front section of the card front and tied a bow.  I added some Clear Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the succulent flower from the Painted Seasons stamp set in Petal Pink Ink on a small panel of Whisper White cardstock stamping it off once.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Well Said Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink over the flower.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the card using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the succulent flower from the Painted Seasons stamp set on the front of the envelope once in Petal Pink Ink and twice in Pool Party Ink.  I adhered a piece of Painted Seasons DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today, I hope you liked my card today.

Stampin’ Up Painted Seasons for Just Us Girls and TGIF

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  Hope your week has started out well.

For today’s card I used the Stampin’ Up Painted Seasons Stamp Set again.  I’m loving this set.  You can get this set as a bundle with Designer Series Paper FREE with a $100.00 order.  I absolutely love the images in this set.  My card today is very similar to yesterday’s card in style, measurements are a little different and of course different colors.  Take a look.

I joined in with the ‘Just Us Girls’ color challenge # 475.  Be sure to stop by to see what everyone has made and to play along.  Here is their colors.

I also joined in with the TGIF Sale-A-Bration Inspiration challenge #199. Be sure to stop by to see what everyone has made for their challenge too and to play along.  Here is their challenge.

I started with a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the succulent flower image from the Painted Seasons stamp set in Blushing Bride Ink randomly around the paper.  I stamped the star clusters from the same stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink around filling in empty spaces.  I adhered the artwork panel to a Blushing Bride mat using Snail.  I adhered the matted artwork to a Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up By The Bay Stamp Set, FREE Sale-A-Bration item with a $50.00 order, in Cherry Cobbler Ink on the bottom right of the card front.  I added 3 Rhinestone Basic Jewels that I had colored in with my Dark Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blend Marker, to the top corner of the card front.

On the inside I stamped the succulent flower image from the Painted Seasons stamp set in Blushing Bride Ink on the two corners of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the star clusters from the same stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink by the flowers.  I stamped the sentiment from the By The Bay stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink in the center of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the succulent flower image from the Painted Seasons stamp set on the envelope front and the envelope flap in Blushing Bride Ink.  I stamped the star cluster in Cherry Cobbler Ink by the flowers.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try.  Yesterday and today’s card were the same layout, but using different colors, different measurements and the different flower making the cards look a little different.  Happy Stamping.
