Stampin’ Up Seasoned With Kindness for CAS(E) This Sketch #303 and Fab Friday # 154

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  How is your week going?

For today’s card I used a Host Exclusive Stamp Set called Seasoned With Kindness.  I played along with 2 different challenges today.  Fab Friday color challenge # 154 and CAS(E) This Sketch challenge #303.  Please be sure to stop by the Fab Friday blog to see all the beautiful projects made and to play along.  Also, be sure to stop by the CAS(E) This Sketch challenge to see what everyone has made and to play along with them too.

Here is the Fab Friday Color Challenge # 154.  I have to admit, this was a real challenge for me.  These colors were a little difficult for me.

Here is the CAS(E) This Sketch Challenge # 303.

Here is what I came up with for the 2 challenges.  Take a look.

I started with a Highland Heather card front and adhered a panel of Tranquil Textures Designer Series Paper to it using Snail.  I adhered the card front to a Tranquil Tide card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped 2 of the plant images from the Stampin’ Up Seasoned With Kindness Host Exclusive stamp set.  I first stamped the outlines in Tranquil Tide Ink.  I then stamped the inside of the leaves in Lemon Lime Twist Ink and the inside of the flower in Highland Heather Ink.  I stamped the inside of the flower-pot in Pear Pizzazz Ink.  I did all the stamping using my Stamparatus.  It made lining everything up very easy. Using my Big Shot I cut the artwork out using the circle from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.

I adhered the circle to a small piece of Mint Macaron cardstock using Snail.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Easter Beauty stamp set in Tranquil Tide Ink around the bottom of the circle.  I stamped another plant image from the Seasoned With Kindness stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink along the bottom of the Mint Macaron panel.  I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I then took a piece of Whisper White Bakers Twine and colored it using my Pear Pizzazz Ink.  I tied a small bow and attached it to the flower pot using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the plant images from the Seasoned With Kindness stamp set along the bottom of a Whisper White panel the same way I stamped them on the card front.  I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set in Tranquil Tide Ink in the center of the panel and adhered it to a Highland Heather mat using Snail.  I then adhered it to the Tranquil Tide card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the plant images from the Seasoned With Kindness stamp set on the bottom front of the envelope.  I adhered a piece of Tranquil Textures 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.  To get this host exclusive stamp set you either must have a qualifying party  to earn this set or if you purchase $150 in product you can earn it.  Happy stamping!

Stampin’ Up Just Because Sneak Peek

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  Hope you all had a wonderful weekend and have made some fun plans for tonight.  My plans usually involve staying home and trying to stay up till midnight.  I may just have to work at my craft table to stay awake.  What every your plans are, stay safe ringing the New Year in.  I can’t believe the year is over and we start a new one tomorrow.

For today’s card I used a Host exclusive set called Just Because.  You can earn this set by having a qualifying party or spending $150.00 yourself on products.  Here’s my card for today.

I started with a panel of Floral Romance Specialty Designer Series Paper, (available January 3, 2019, just 3 days away), as my card front.  I adhered another piece of the same paper to the bottom portion of the card front using Glue Dots.  The bottom is a beautiful Vellum piece so you have to be careful when adhering it or you may be able to see the adhesive used.  I then wrapped a piece of Linen Thread around the card front twice just at the vellum piece.

On a small piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped one of the images from the Just Because Host Exclusive stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored it in using my Mossy Meadow, (available January 3, 2019), and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the artwork to a Petal Pink Mat using Snail then to a Fresh Fig mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the matted artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the card front to a Fresh Fig card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the Happy Anniversary sentiment from Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set in Fresh Fig Ink.  Using my Big Shot and Bunch Of Banners Framelits I cut the sentiment out and adhered it under the artwork using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Clear Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the image from Just Because Host Exclusive stamp set on a Whisper White panel.  I colored the stamp in using my Mossy Meadow and Petal Pink Stampin’ Write Markers stamping it off once.  I stamped the sentiment from Forever Lovely stamp set (available January 3, 2019) over the stamped image in Mossy Meadow Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Sahara Sand mat using Snail then adhered it to the Fresh Fig card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the vase image from Just Because stamp set on the front of the envelope colored the same as I did for the inner liner.  I adhered a piece of Floral Romance Specialty 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. I hope you all have a Happy Healthy and Safe New Year.  I will see you next year!Happy Stamping.
