Stampin’ Up! Treasured Kindness 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. Today is my daughter’s 24th birthday. I can’t believe that 24 years have gone by that quickly. She’s not only my daughter but my friend. We do most everything together. Unfortunately for the first time in years she has class today. Being a Memorial Day baby, she would almost always have her birthday off. Our plans are to celebrate it on Saturday with her friend and Monday with a small picnic.

If you are hopping over from Akiko Sudano’s blog, thank you for stopping by. This week we have a Sketch Challenge. Here is my card using this week’s Sketch.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Treasured Kindness Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Flowering Fields Designer Series Paper for my card today.

This is our sketch for this week.

I started by adhering a panel of Flowering Fields DSP to a Pear Pizzazz card base.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sun image from the Treasured Kindness stamp set in So Saffron Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper, in the center of the panel. I stamped the tree image from the Treasured Kindness stamp set. I stamped the tree trunk in Soft Suede Ink stamping the detailed full strength and the fill image stamped off once on scrap paper. I stamped the treetop stamping the detailed image in Pear Pizzazz Ink and the fill image in Soft Sea Foam Ink. I stamped the ground image from the Treasured Kindness stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink below the tree. I cut the panel using my Deckled Rectangle Dies (which have become my new favorite dies) and adhered it to the card base.

On a strip of So Saffron cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Treasured Kindness stamp set in Soft Suede Ink. I adhered the sentiment strip to a strip of Pear Pizzazz cardstock using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sun image from the Treasured Kindness stamp set in So Saffron Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the sentiment from the Treasured Kindness stamp set in Soft Suede Ink over the sun. I stamped the tree image from the Treasured Kindness stamp set on the bottom of the panel the same as I did for the card front. I adhered the Basic White panel to a So Saffron mat and then to the inside of the Pear Pizzazz card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the tree image from the Treasured Kindness stamp set on the envelope front the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of Flowering Fields DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for visiting my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Now that you’ve seen my card, take a minute to hop through and see everyone’s projects today.

Stampin’ Up! Ranunculus Romance 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 Sudano’s blog, thank you for stopping by. This week we have a Sketch Challenge. Here is my card using this week’s Sketch.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Ranunculus Romance Bundle from the January-June 2022 Mini Catalog for my card today.

Here’s our sketch for this week.

My colors are from the TGIF Challenge #367.

I started by adhering a panel of Heart & Home Designer Series Paper to a Soft Succulent card base. I cut a panel of Soft Succulent and Artfully Composed Designer Series Paper using the 4th largest Stitched Rectangle Dies. I adhered the 2 rectangles together using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered die cuts to the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the rose image from the Stampin’ Up! Ranunculus Romance Cling Stamp Set in Smoky Slate Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper. I colored the image using my Fresh Freesia and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image out using the coordinating die from the Ranunculus Dies and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. From panels of Fresh Freesia, Shimmery White and Vellum Paper, I cut 2 of the small floral dies using the Ranunculus Dies from each panel. I adhered them behind the rose die using small amounts of Multipurpose Liquid Glue and Glue Dots.

On a panel of Soft Succulent cardstock, I stamped the script image from the Ranunculus Romance stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink. I stamped the sentiment from the Ranunculus Romance stamp set in Versamark Ink on top of the script image. I sprinkled it with my White Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I cut the sentiment out using the narrowest die from the Stitched Rectangle Dies and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few 2021-2023 In- Color Opal Rounds to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Ranunculus Romance stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the rose image from the Ranunculus Romance stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper, next to the sentiment. I colored the image using my Fresh Freesia and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Fresh Freesia mat and then to the inside of the Soft Succulent card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the rose image from the Ranunculus Romance stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper, on the envelope front and colored it using my Fresh Freesia and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of Heart & Home DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Cactus Cuties for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. It’s Cinco de Mayo, who’s having Mexican tonight for dinner? Maybe tacos or burritos or maybe just nachos. I’ll be at work all day, so I’m not quite sure what we will be having. I hope everyone is doing well today. If you are hopping over from Akiko Sudano’s blog, thank you for stopping by. This week we have a Color Challenge. Here is my card using this week’s Colors.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Cactus Cuties Bundle along with the Brick and Mortar 3D Embossing Folder for my card today

These are our colors for this week.

I started by stamping the sprig image from the Stampin’ Up! Cactus Cuties Photopolymer Stamp Set in Crumb Cake Ink on a Crumb Cake card base. I embossed a Basic White card front using the Brick & Mortar 3d Embossing Folder. I gently brushed my Crumb Cake stamp pad across the embossed panel letting the ink catch on just some of the bricks.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the 3 flowerpot images from the Cactus Cuties stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink. 2 of the flowerpots I fussy cut using my Paper Snips and the other I punched out using the Cactus Builder Punch. I stamped the 3 cactus images from the Cactus Cuties stamp set in Evening Evergreen and Soft Succulent Inks. I stamped the tiny flower image from the Cactus Cuties stamp set in Calypso Coral Ink 4 times, twice full-strength ink and twice stamped off once on scrap paper. I punched out the oval cactus images that I stamped in Soft Succulent Ink and the tiny flower images using the Cactus Builder Punch. I fussy cut all the other images using my Paper Snips. I adhered the flowerpots and the cactus images to the embossed panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I wrapped a piece of Evening Evergreen baker’s twine from the Fan Baker’s Twine Pack, around the top of the panel and tied a small bow. On a small strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Cactus Cuties stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink. I cut the end of the strip into a banner using the Banner Pick A Punch. I adhered the sentiment to the card front, over the baker’s twine, using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the card front to the Crumb Cake card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Calypso Coral Polished Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Cactus Cuties in Evening Evergreen Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the flowerpot image from the Cactus Cuties stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink, stamped off once, on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the cactus image on the flowerpot in Evening Evergreen Ink, stamped off once on scrap paper. I stamped the tiny flower image from the Cactus Cuties stamp set in Calypso Coral Ink on either side of the sentiment. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Crumb Cake mat and then to the inside of the Crumb Cake card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the flowerpot image from the Cactus Cuties stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink on the envelope front. I stamped the larger cactus image from the Cactus Cuties stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink and the flowers in Calypso Coral Ink. I stamped the sentiment on the flowerpot in Crumb Cake Ink. On the envelope flap I stamped the flower and sprig images from the Cactus Cuties stamp set in Calypso Coral and Crumb Cake Inks.

Stampin’ Up! Wisteria Wishes Fun Fold Video Tutorial

Good Friday morning my stamping friends welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How are you all doing today? Are you ready for the weekend? I hope you are making some fun plans. I’ll be working both days this weekend in the office at Ace. It’s the end of the month, so I have to close out the books on Saturday and Sunday I have to print and send my monthly bills.

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 new Stampin’ Up! Wisteria Wishes Photopolymer Stamp Set (available May 3rd) along with the 2022-2024 In-Color 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper (available May 3rd) for my Double Z-Fold card today.

I started by stamping the branch image from the Wisteria Wishes stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink on a Basic White card front. I stamped the wisteria image from the Wisteria Wishes stamp set in Orchid Oasis Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper, on the branch. I stamped the detail wisteria image in Orchid Oasis Ink over the image. On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the branch image again in Soft Succulent Ink and the wisteria image the same as I did of the card front on the Basic White panel. I cut the images out using my Wisteria Dies.

I adhered the branch to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the die cut wisteria to the branch using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I cut the detailed branch from the Wisteria Dies from a panel of Soft Succulent cardstock. I cut the larger wisteria die from the Wisteria Dies from a panel of Basic White cardstock that I colored using my Blending Brush and Orchid Oasis Ink. I cut the detailed wisteria die from the Wisteria Dies from a panel of Orchid Oasis cardstock. I adhered the branch to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the wisteria dies together using Glue Dots and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few 2022-2024 In-Color Matte Decorative
Dots
to the card front.

I adhered the 3 panel of 2022-2024 In-Color DSP to Basic White mats using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to the small Z-Fold panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Wisteria Wishes stamp set in Orchid Oasis Ink on a Basic White panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to the inside of the Soft Succulent card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the small Z-Fold panel to the larger card base using Tear & Tape. I adhered the card front to the front of the Soft Succulent card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the stem image from the Wisteria Wishes stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink. I stamped the wisteria image from the Wisteria Wishes stamp set first in Petal Pink Ink, then using my Sponge Dauber I added Sweet Sorbet Ink to the bottom of the flowers and stamped them on the Basic White panel. I cut the images out using my Wisteria Dies. I adhered the flower image to the stems using Glue Dots and then to the back card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added my last Bumblebee Trinket by the flowers using a Glue Dot.

Here is the view from the top.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the stem image from the Wisteria Wishes stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink on the envelope front. I stamped the flower image from the Wisteria Wishes stamp set, colored the same as for the card, on the stems. I adhered a panel of the 2022-2024 In-Color DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Pansy Patch 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 Sudano’s blog, thank you for stopping by. This week we have a Sketch Challenge. Here is my card using this week’s Sketch.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Pansy Patch Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Brilliance Bundle (bundle price only available until May 2nd), and the Tea Boutique 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my card today.

Here’s our sketch for this week.

My colors are from the Cupcake Inspiration Challenge #542.

I started by adhering a panel of Tea Boutique DSP to a Basic Black mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered layer to a Parakeet Party card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I embossed a panel of Fresh Freesia 2021-2023 In-Color Shimmer Vellum using the Pretty Flowers Embossing Folder. I adhered the Shimmer Vellum to the card front using Stampin’ Seal only under where the sentiment and butterfly were placed.

Using my Brilliant Wings Dies, I cut a solid butterfly from a panel of Daffodil Delight cardstock. I cut the coordinating detailed butterfly from a panel of Basic Black cardstock. I adhered the detailed butterfly to the solid butterfly just on the body using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the butterfly to the vellum panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added black Adhesive-Backed Hexagons to the butterfly body.

On a strip of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Pansy Patch stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I adhered the sentiment to the vellum panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Brushed Brass Butterflies to the card front.

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Pansy Patch stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the butterfly image from the Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Brillance Cling Stamp Set in Daffodil Delight Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper, next to the sentiment. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Basic Black mat and then to the inside of the Parakeet Party card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the butterfly image from the Butterfly Brilliance stamp set in Daffodil Delight Ink, stamping off once, on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of Tea Boutique DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for visiting my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Now that you’ve seen my card, take a minute to hop through and see everyone’s projects today.

Stampin’ Up! Bottled Happiness Sneak Peek CAS

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends and welcome to the weekend. I hope you have something fun planned. I’ll be at work both today and tomorrow, and of course it’s supposed to be a beautiful weekend. Yesterday I was able to pull all my flowerpots from last summer out. I have an overhang in the back of my house where I slide all my plants under hoping they will make it through the winter. My rose bushes have green leaves on them already and my foxgloves are starting to sprout. Hopefully the weather will stay on the warmer side, so I don’t have to cover them up again.

Today’s card is a really simple one. I asked my daughter to pick colors for me to use for this one. I told her to pick 2 of the 2022-2024 In-Colors. After I was stamping with them for a minute, I realized the last card I did with In-Colors were the exact same colors. She is definitely my daughter. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Bottled Happiness Photopolymer Stamp Set (available May 3rd) along with the Stampin’ Up! Flowering Tulips Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Tea Boutique 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper (available May 3rd) for my card today.

I started by adhering a panel of the Tea Boutique DSP to an Orchis Oasis card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the outline detailed bottle image form the Bottled Happiness stamp set in Parakeet Party Ink. I stamped the bottle image from the Bottled Happiness stamp set in Parakeet Party Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper, over the outlined image. I stamped the fern image from the Bottled Happiness stamp set in Orchid Oasis Ink on top of the bottle.

I stamped the sentiment from the Bottled Happiness stamp set in Orchid Oasis Ink next to the bottle. I adhered the Basic White panel to an Orchid Oasis mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Flowering Tulips stamp set in Orchid Oasis Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the fern image from the Bottled Happiness stamp set in Orchid Oasis Ink on the bottom of the panel. I adhered a strip of the Tea Boutique DSP to the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Parakeet Party mat and then to the inside of the Orchid Oasis card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the fern image from the Bottled Happiness stamp set in Orchid Oasis on the envelope front in full strength and stamped off once. I adhered a panel of the Tea Boutique DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my CAS card and will give it a try. Items I used today will be available for purchase on May 3rd which is in just 10 days. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Lovely You Butterflies 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 Sudano’s blog, thank you for stopping by. This week we have a Theme Challenge. Here is my card using this week’s Theme.

I used the Butterflies & Flowers Layering Decorative Masks along with the Stampin’ Up! Lovely You Cling Stamp Set and Brights 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my card today.

This is our theme for this week.

My colors are from Hand Stamped Sentiments Color Challenge #387.

I started with a Basic White card front and using my Blending Brushes and the Butterflies & Flowers Masks I added Bermuda Bay Ink with the open butterfly mask on the top and bottom of the panel. I placed the detail butterfly mask over the inked image and added Pacific Point Ink. I embossed the panel using my Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder.

I adhered a panel of the Brights DSP to a Coastal Cabana card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On a strip of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from Lovey You stamp set in Pacific Point Ink. I cut the sentiment out using my Label Me Fancy Punch. I threaded a length of White 3/8″ Glittered Organdy Ribbon through the 2 ends and adhered it to the back of the card front using Tear & Tape.

I adhered the card front to the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I added a few Coastal Cabana Playing with Patterns Resin Dots to the artwork and a couple Brushed Brass Butterflies to the punched sentiment.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Through It Together stamp set in Pacific Point Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the flower image from the Lovely You stamp set in Bermuda Bay Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper, on either side of the sentiment. I adhered a strip of the Brights DSP to the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Bermuda Bay mat and then to the inside of the Coastal Cabana card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of the Brights DSP to the envelope front and a panel to the envelope flap.

Thank you for visiting my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Now that you’ve seen my card, take a minute to hop through and see everyone’s projects today.

Stampin’ Up! Flowering Rain Boots

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. We’re halfway through the week and on the downhill to the weekend. Hope you are all having a wonderful week.

I was looking through my card stash yesterday and wanted to send a thinking of you card. I realized I don’t have many cards that are for ‘just because’. So, I decided to make one. Have you ever had one of those crafting days that everything goes wrong? It took me 5 tries to get this card right. I knew exactly what I wanted, but it just wouldn’t go on paper that way. Then when I thought I had it, the ink smudged. Tuesday is usually my day to get myself a little ahead, not yesterday. We’ll blame it on the weather. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin” Up! Flowering Rain Boots Bundle along with the Subtle 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my card today.

My colors are from Sunday Stamps Sweet Pastels Challenge #281.

I played along with The Paper Players Clean & Simple Challenge #587, April Showers.

I started by stamping the grass image from the Stampin’ Up! Paradise Palms Cling Stamp Set in Mint Macaron Ink along the bottom of a Basic White card front. On a panel of the Subtle DSP I stamped the rain boots image from the Stampin’ Up! Flowering Rain Boots Photopolymer Stamp Set in Blushing Bride Ink. I cut the boots out using my Rain Boots Dies.

I stamped the stem/leaves image from the Flowering Rain Boots stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink on the Basic Whtie card front. I stamped the tulip heads image from the Flowering Rain Boots stamp set on the stems in Highland Heather Ink on top of the stem. I adhered the rain boots to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Flowering Rain Boots stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink on the card front. From a strip of Basic White cardstock I cut the cloud looking die from the Basic Borders Dies and adhered it to the top of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the card front to a So Saffron mat and then to the front of a Basic White Thick card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I added Silver & Clear Epoxy Essentials that looked like rain drops to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Flowering Rain Boots stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the stem/leaves image from the Flowering Rain Boots stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the tulip heads in Highland Heather Ink on top of the stems. I adhered the Basic White panel to a So Saffron mat and then to the inside of the Basic White Thick card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the stems/leaves image from the Flowering Rain Boots stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink on the bottom of the envelope front and the tulips in Highland Heather Ink on the top of the stems. I adhered a panel of Subtle 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! Fresh Cut Flowers Sneak Peek for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers. Welcome to Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop. It’s the 2nd Tuesday of the month so that means Blog Hop Day!! If you are starting with me, be sure to hop around to see everyone’s amazing projects. If you’ve hopped over from Amy Koenders’ blog, welcome to my blog and thank you for stopping by. The theme this month is “For The Ladies/Girls”.  We can interpret this however we want.  Here’s my card for today.

I used the new Stampin’ Up! Fresh Cut Flowers Cling Stamp Set along with the new Fabulous Frames Dies from the upcoming 2022-2023 Annual Catalog for my card today.

I started by adhering a panel of Mint Macaron Subtle 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Mint Macaron card base. I stamped the large floral image from the Fresh Cut Flowers stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I colored the image in using my Mint Macaron and Pale Papaya Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I cut the image out using the largest frame from the Fabulous Frames Dies. This die cuts out the image and cuts a frame at the same time. I adhered the cut floral image to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the frame to the card front, lining it up with the artwork, using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a few Mint Macaron Genial Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Inspired Thoughts Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the floral image from the Fresh Cut Flowers stamp set on the bottom of the panel in Tuxedo Black Ink and colored it using my Mint Macaron and Pale Papaya Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Mint Macaron mat and then to the inside of the Mint Macaron card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic Whtie Medium Envelope. I stamped the floral image from the Fresh Cut Flowers stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and colored it using my Mint Macaron and Pale Papaya Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of the Subtle DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for visiting by my blog today, I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Now that you’ve seen my card, be sure to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects.

Stampin’ Up! Cactus Cuties Hello

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends and welcome to the weekend. I hope you have some fun plans in store. I’m working all day today, which is fine since it’s supposed to rain again. I do have off tomorrow though YAY!!!

I was busy yesterday getting everything ready to send out the new 2022-2023 Annual Catalogs to my customers and lost track of time. I was focused on getting them to the post office and shipped out. With that being said, I have a quick card for you today using retiring items. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Cactus Cuties Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Bloom Where You’re Planted Designer Series Paper. Not only both of these items will be retiring, but 2 of the colors I used, Bumblebee and Cinnamon Cider, will be retiring too.

I started by adhering a panel of Bloom Where You’re Planted DSP to a Cinnamon Cider card base.

I cut a panel of Basic White cardstock using the new Stylish Shapes Dies (available May 3rd). I stamped the flowerpot image from the Cactus Cuties stamp set in Cinnamon Cider Ink on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the cactus image from the Cactus Cuties stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink on the flowerpot. I stamped the flower image from the Cactus Cuties stamp set in Bumblebee Ink on the cactus image. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Cinnamon Cider mat on an angel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Cactus Cuties stamp set in Cinnamon Cider Ink. I cut the sentiment out using the Stylish Shapes Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a couple 2020-2022 In-Color Square Gems to the sentiment and a Bumblebee Trinket to the artwork.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Cactus Cuties stamp set in Cinnamon Cider Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the flowerpot, cactus and flower images from the Cactus Cuties stamp set the same as I did for the card front on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Cinnamon Cider mat and then to the inside of the Cinnamon Cider card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the cactus, flower and flowerpot images from the Cactus Cuties stamp set them same as I did for the card on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of Bloom Where You’re Planted 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!!
