Stampin’ Up! Apple Harvest for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Has anyone made any plans for the long weekend yet? I’ll be working all day tomorrow, but only half day Sunday, so I’ll get most of the day to do something.

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

Stampin' Up! Apple Harvest Fun Fold 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Apple Harvest Bundle along with the Gingham Cottage Designer Series Paper for my card today. This bundle will only be available until September 30, 2022. The stamp set is in the July -December 2022 Mini Catalog, but you will really want the dies to go with it. There are 25 dies in the pack and it’s an awesome pack of dies that you will absolutely love to have with the stamp set. Grab it while it’s available as a bundle and save yourself 10%.

I played along with the Creative Creases Challenge #41.

Stampin' Up! Apple Harvest Fun Fold 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by stamping the apples on the branch image from the Apple Harvest stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Basic Whtie cardstock. I cut the image using the Apple Blossoms Dies. I cut 7 of the small flowers dies from the Apple Blossoms Dies from the same panel of Basic White cardstock. I colored the image in using my Grann Apple Green, Poppy Parade, Soft Suede and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers. Using the Apple Blossom Dies I cut 8 of the flower centers from a panel of Flirty Flamingo cardstock, 10 leaves from a panel of Granny Apple Green cardstock and 2 branches from a panel of Soft Suede Cardstock.

Stampin' Up! Apple Harvest Fun Fold 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

Using the 3rd largest Deckled Rectangle Die I cut a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the small background image from the Apple Harvest stamp set in Poppy Parade Ink a few times where I was going to adhere the dies. I adhered the large colored die using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the leaves to the branches using tiny drops of Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the branches just under the apple branch image using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the flower centers to the flowers using tiny amounts of Multipurpose Liquid Glue and adhered the flowers to the branches using Glue Dots. I adhered the artwork to a Poppy Parade mat.

Stampin' Up! Apple Harvest Fun Fold 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

I adhered a panel of Gingham Cottage DSP to a Poppy Parade Mat. I adhered the layered panel to the Basic Whtie card front. I adhered the layered artwork to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I stamped the sentiment from the Apple Harvest stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I cut the sentiment out using the Apple Blossoms Dies and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

Stampin' Up! Apple Harvest Fun Fold 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

I scored the Basic White Thick card base at 1 3/8″ & 2 3/4″ flipped the panel over and scored at 1 3/8″ & 2 3/4″ on the other end. I folded the 2 3/4″ score lines in and folded the 1 3/8″ score lines out. I adhered a panel of Gingham Cottage DSP to a Poppy Parade mat. I adhered the layered panel to the right folded panel. I adhered the layered card front to the left folded panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On the inside, I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Through It Together Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the apple image from the Apple Harvest stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom of the panel. I colored the image using the Granny Apple Green, Poppy Parade, Soft Suede and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Poppy Parade mat, 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 apple on the branch image from the Apple Harvest stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I colored the image using my Flirty Flamingo, Granny Apple Green, Poppy Parade, Soft Suede and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of Gingham Cottage DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Willow Tree Get Well Card

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends. I hope you all had a wonderful Labor Day weekend and were able to do something fun.

I played with a new set to me today from the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog. As most of you know, I do not like the color yellow and I especially do not like Crushed Curry. That’s what I used today. Even though I don’t like it, I do like it for fall cards. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Willow Tree Get Well 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Willow Tree Bundle along with the Stampin’ Up! Through It Together Cling Stamp Set and Butterfly Kisses 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my card today.

Stampin' Up! Willow Tree Get Well 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by adhering a panel of Butterfly Kisses DSP to a Garden Green mat. I adhered the layered panel to a Crushed Curry card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Willow Tree Get Well 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the tree trunk image from the Stampin’ Up! Willow Tree Photopolymer Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink. I stamped the tree top image from the Willow Tree stamp set in Crushed Curry Ink on the tree trunk. On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the smaller tree top image from the Willow Tree stamp set in Crushed Curry Ink and cut the image out using my Willow Dies. Using my Willow Dies, I cut the leaf dies from a panel of Crushed Curry cardstock. I adhered the leaf dies to the stamped image using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the die cut tree top image to the stamped image using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Willow Tree Get Well 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the bottom of the panel, I stamped the solid grass image from the Willow Tree stamp set in Garden Green Ink below the tree. I stamped the detailed grass image from the Willow Tree stamp set in Garden Green Ink around the solid image. I stamped the bunny image from the Willow Tree stamp set in Gray Granite Ink. I adhered the panel to a Garden Green mat. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Through It Together stamp set in Soft Suede Ink. I cut the sentiment out using the Stylish Shapes Dies and adhered it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I added a few Brushed Brass Butterflies to the card front.

I adhered the Basic White panel to a Garden Green mat and then to the inside of the Crushed Curry card base.

Stampin’ Up! Brightest Beauty CAS

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend. It’s HOT here. We’re supposed to be in the 100’s today. The ‘feel like’ temp for the past week has been over 100 every day. My son has been coming home from work exhausted. He’s a soccer coach and has been outside in the sun for the past week at camps. He brings gallons of water with him and picks up Gatorade or Powerade drinks too. The good thing about the heat we’re having, my tomatoes are ripening, I was able to have my 1st tomato sandwich of the season yesterday and it was delicious.

Today I have a really quick CAS card for you using a new set I just received from the July-December Mini Catalog. I looked over this set at first, but I have to admit, I LOVE it. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Brightest Beauty Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Stampin’ Up! Go To Greetings Cling Stamp Set for my card today.

My colors are from Color Throwdown Challenge #702.

I got my CAS design from Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #545.

Stampin' Up! Brightest Beauty CAS2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by stamping the leaf image from the Brightest Beauty stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the flower image from the Brightest Beauty stamp set in So Saffron Ink over the leaf image. I randomly stamped the geometric image from the Brightest Beauty stamp set in Pool Party Ink around the outside of the panel.

Stampin' Up! Brightest Beauty CAS3 creativestampingdesigns.com

I cut the stamped panel into 1 1/2″ strips and adhered them to a Basic White Thick card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Brightest Beauty CAS4 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a strip of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Go To Greetings in Crumb Cake Ink. I fussy cut the sentiment using my Paper Snips. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Brightest Beauty CAS5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Brightest Beauty stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the floral image from the Brightest Beauty stamp set on the side of the panel in Pear Pizzazz and So Saffron Inks. I stamped the geometric image from the Brightest Beauty stamp set in Pool Party Ink on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Pool Party mat and then to the inside of the Basic White Thick card base.

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! Back On Your Feet Giraffe

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend? Did anyone do anything fun? The cold weather is back here for us. It’s only supposed to get up to 36 today and drop to 23 tonight. We even had a snow squall go through yesterday while I was at work. We may skip spring this year and go right to summer like we have in the past.

Today’s card is a special one. Some of you know that I was a Girl Scout when I was younger, and I was Girl Scout Leader for 13 years for my daughter. I had girls from kindergarten all the way up to graduation from high school. I bridged them to adult Girl Scouts in June of 2016. One of my girl scouts that I had for the full 13 years, I always called her the wild child, was in a car accident a few weeks ago. She got banged up pretty bad was in the hospital for a week and had to have knee surgery along with some others. I thought I’d make her a card letting her know that we were thinking of her and hoping that she has a speedy recovery. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Back On Your Feet Cling Stamp Set along with the In The Wild Designer Series Paper and the Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by adhering a panel of Pansy Petals DSP to a Bumblebee card base. I embossed a panel of Evening Evergreen cardstock using the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered a panel of In The Wild DSP to a Bumblebee mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to the embossed panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and set aside.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the giraffe image from the Back On Your Feet stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I stamped just the leaf from the sloth image on the top of the panel in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the images using my Cinnamon Cider, Flirty Flamingo, So Saffron and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image out using my Stitched Rectangle Dies and adhered it to a Bumblebee mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered artwork to the layered panels using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I wrapped a piece of the Bumblebee 1/4″ Gingham Trim around the layered panels and tied a bow. On a small piece of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment out from the Back On Your Feet stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink and cut it our using my Layering Circles Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the left of the artwork using Glue Dots and Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the layered panels to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Cinnamon Cider 2020-2022 In-Color Square Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment form the Back On Your Feet stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the giraffe image to the right of the sentiment in Tuxedo Black Ink and colored it using my Cinnamon Cider, Flirty Flamingo and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to an Evening Evergreen mat and then to the inside of the Bumblebee card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the giraffe image from the Back On Your Feet stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and colored it using my Cinnamon Cider, Flirty Flamingo and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of In The Wild 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. Don’t forget that this stamp set, and both of the DSP’s will be retiring soon on May 2nd. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Back On Your Feet CAS

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. We’re halfway through the week and only 3 days till Christmas. I haven’t wrapped a thing, let alone shopped. My husband has done a lot of the shopping for us this year, I’m just not feeling up to it.

I have a quick fun card today using product from the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog. Every once in a while, I like to pull things out I haven’t played with in a bit. Here’s my card today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Back on Your Feet Cling Stamp Set along with the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper for my card today.

My design is from Sunday Stamps Sketch Challenge #272.

My colors are from Inspire. Create. Color Challenge #106.

I started by embossing a Very Vanilla card front using the Timber 3D Embossing Folder and adhering it to a Very Vanilla card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of In Good Taste DSP I stamped the sentiment from the Back on Your Feet stamp set in Versamark Ink on the bottom. I immediately sprinkled it with my white embossing powder from the Embossing Powder Basics and set it using my Heat Tool. I adhered the panel to a Cinnamon Cider mat using Stampin’ Seal. I colored a piece of White Bakers Twine using my Cinnamon Cider Stampin’ Blends Marker. Once it was dry, I wrapped it around the layered panel and tied a small bow. I adhered the panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the sloth image from the Back on Your Feet stamp set in Early Espresso Ink. I colored the image in using my Cinnamon Cider and Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends Markers. I fussy cut the image using my Paper Snips and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and Glue Dots. I added a couple Cinnamon Cider 2020-2022 In-Color Square Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Back on Your Feet stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on a Very Vanilla panel. I stamped the turtle image from the Back on Your Feet stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Cinnamon Cider mat and then to the inside of the Very Vanilla card base.

To finish my card I decorated a Very Vanilla Medium Envelope. I stamped the sloth image from the Back on Your Feet stamp set in Early Espresso Ink and colored it using my Cinnamon Cider and Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends Markers.

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

Stampin’ Up! Eden’s Garden Fun Fold 2

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends. How has your weekend started off? I hope you have something fun planned.

Those of you that know me, know that I never make 2 cards exactly the same. It’s just how I roll. On my live video Wednesday I was letting everyone decide what color to emboss the sentiment on the front. Most said gold, but I really wanted to see it in white also. So, today’s card is the exact same card I made for my Facebook Live on Wednesday afternoon except I used some different DSP and I embossed it in White. I posted the card yesterday with all the directions and measurements. You can see it Here. Since everything is listed, I’m not giving the directions again. I’ve also attached the links for my videos on the bottom so you can stamp along with it. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Eden’s Garden Cling Stamp Set along with the Ever Eden Specialty Designer Series Paper and Ever Eden Cotton Paper for my card today.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. If you do CASE this card, please feel free to post it in the comments of my Facebook page under the post. I’d love to see your take on the card. 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.

You can also view the video on my YouTube channel Here. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Positive Thoughts Get Well

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. We’re halfway through the week already and on our way to the weekend. It’s really turned to summer here this week and I’m loving it.

For today I used an older set from the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog that carried over. I used the Stampin’ Up! Positive Thoughts Cling Stamp Set for my card along with the new Pattern Party Host Designer Series Paper. This DSP can be earned with Stampin’ Rewards from placing an order of $150 or more. I used a pretty simple layout that’s really easy to recreate. Here’s my card for today.

My design and colors are from my Team Challenge that my upline Jaimie gives us each week.

I started by adhering a panel of the Pattern Party DSP to a Granny Apple Green card base using Stampin’ Seal.

I embossed a panel of Petal Pink cardstock using the new Pretty Flowers Embossing Folder and adhered it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Positive Thoughts stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock and cut it out using my Ornate Layers Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Balmy Blue cardstock I stamped the butterfly image from the Positive Thoughts stamp set in Soft Suede Ink and cut them out using my Nature’s Thoughts Dies. I adhered the butterflies to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I colored a few Pearl Basic Jewels using my Balmy Blue Stampin’ Blends Markers and adhered them to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Positive Thoughts stamp set in Soft Suede Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I adhered the tiny Balmy Blue butterfly I had cut using the Nature’s Thoughts Dies, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Petal Pink mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Granny Apple Green card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I adhered a strip of Pattern Party DSP to the front of a Basic White Medium Envelope and a panel 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! Back On Your Feet for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends and welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. I hope everyone is doing well. If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we have a sketch challenge. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s awesome projects. Here is my card for today.

I needed to make a card for a coworker that has suffered from a heart attach this past weekend. I immediately thought about the Stampin’ Up! Back On Your Feet Cling Stamp Set to go with our sketch. Here is our sketch for this weeks challenge.

I started by adhering a panel of Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper to a Pretty Peacock card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I cut another panel of Forever Greenery DSP using my Stitched Rectangle Dies and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Seal.

I stamped the turtle image from the Back On Your Feet stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I colored the image in using my Just Jade, Mint Macaron, Pretty Peacock and Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image using my Stitched Shapes Dies. I cut a scalloped square from a panel of Pretty Peacock cardstock using my Layering Squares Dies and adhered the artwork to it using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the matted artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Back On Your Feet stamp set on a panel of Basic White cardstock in Pretty Peacock Ink. I cut the sentiment out using my Hippo & Friends Dies and adhered it 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 Back On Your Feet stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the sloth image from the Back On Your Feet stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the side of the panel and colored it in using my Crumb Cake, Ivory, Shaded Spruce and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Mint Macaron mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Pretty Peacock card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of Forever Greenery DSP to the envelope front and a panel to the envelope flap. I stamped the turtle image from the Back On Your Feet stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and colored it using my Just Jade, Mint Macaron, Pretty Peacock and Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends Markers.
