Stampin’ Up Dandelion Wishes Humming Along

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers.  We’re almost through the week.  After having 2 short weeks this one feels extra long to me.  I really think we should have 3 day work weeks and 4 day weekends all the time.

For today’s card I pulled out another set from the Annual Catalog called Dandelion Wishes.  Take a look

I started with  Thick Very Vanilla card base and adhered a panel of Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper to the front using Snail.  I took a small piece of Very Vanilla cardstock and stamped the triple dandelion image and the flying dandelion pieces image from the Stampin’ Up Dandelion Wishes stamp set in Pacific Point Ink.  I immediately sprinkled it with Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat set it using my Heat Tool.

I adhered the artwork to a Pacific Point panel using Snail.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Humming Along stamp set in Versamark Ink below the artwork.  I sprinkled it with my White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat set it using my Heat Tool.  I wrapped a piece of Very Vanilla 5/8″ Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon around the artwork and tied a bow.

I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I then added a couple Clear Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the dandelion image from the Dandelion Wishes stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink in the center of a Very Vanilla panel.  I stamped the sentiment with the Stampin’ Up Seasoned With Kindness stamp set over the dandelion image in Pacific Point Ink.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Pacific Point mat using Snail then to the Thick Very Vanilla card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I stamped the dandelion image from Dandelion Wishes stamp set on the envelope front.  I adhered a piece of Garden Impressions DSP to the envelope flap.

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

Stampin’ Up Humming Along Sneak Peek

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers.  This week is just flying by, isn’t it?  I just love long weekends and short weeks.

I’ve got another sneak peek for you.  Only 1 week and you can order from the new 2019 Occasions Catalog and Sale-A-Bration Catalog, YAY!  I used the Stampin’ Up Humming Along Cling Stamp Set. Take a look.

I started with a Sahara Sand card front and using my Big Shot I ran it through with the new Lace Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  I adhered it to a Whisper White mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I then adhered it to a Mint Macaron card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the Hibiscus image from the Humming Along stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored it in using my Mint Macaron, Petal Pink, Pineapple Punch and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I fussy cut it using my Paper Snips then adhered it to a panel of Poppy Parade cardstock using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered the artwork to a Whisper White mat using Snail then adhered it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I attached a bow made from the Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon, with a glue dot to the Hibiscus stem.  I added a few Mint Macaron Faceted Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the hibiscus image from the Humming Along stamp set in Petal Pink Ink, stamping off once, in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink over the flower.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the Mint Macaron card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the Hibiscus in Petal Pink Ink on the envelope front and the leaf in Mint Macaron Ink on the envelope flap.  Both stamps are from the Humming Along stamp set.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it at try once you can purchase these items.  Happy Stamping!

Stampin’ Up Humming Along Sneak Peek for Freshly Made Sketches

Good Friday morning all my fellow stampers.  Well we’ve made it through another week and for some you may have a nice long weekend coming up with Christmas being only 4 days away, YIKES.  Is everyone ready?  I finally got my Christmas cards mailed out and hopefully they will arrive before Christmas.

For today I’ve got a sneak peek for you of a new stamp set and Designer Series Paper coming up in the new 2019 Occasions Catalog, which you will be able to order from in less than 2 weeks my friends, YAY.  I’ve also played along with the Freshly Made Sketches #368.  Please be sure to stop by Freshly Made Sketches to see the beautiful projects and to play along.  Here is their sketch.

This sketch really helped me out today, since I was having major crafters block.  Here is my take on the sketch.  Take a look.

I started with a card base of Sahara Sand cardstock.  I adhered a piece of the new BEAUTIFUL Floral Romance Designer Series Paper, available January 3, 2019, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I matted another piece of the DSP on a small piece of Sahara Sand cardstock using Snail.

I took a small piece of Pear Pizzazz cardstock and ran it through my Big Shot using the Lovely Floral Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  I then adhered it to a Sahara Sand mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the 2 matted pieces onto the card front.  The Pear Pizzazz one I used Multipurpose Liquid Glue and the DSP one I used Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the new Humming Along stamp set, available January 3, 2019, in Petal Pink Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using my Big Shot and the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies.  I edged the oval using my Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Write Marker to give a little dimension.  I cut the Sahara Sand mat out using the same framelits dies.  I adhered the sentiment to the Sahara Sand mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue then adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Clear Rhinestone Basic Jewels for a little bling.

On the inside I used the One For All stamp set, but only the sentiment part of one of the stamps.  I colored the stamp using my Mossy Meadow and Petal Pink Stampin’ Write Markers and stamped it in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I then stamped the leaf from the Humming Along stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink, stamping off twice, in the center of the sentiment.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the Sahara Sand card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card off I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the leaf from Humming Along stamp set on the bottom front of the envelope in Pear Pizzazz Ink.  I adhered a piece of Floral Romance DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card.  These items will all be available on January 3, 2019.  Happy Stamping!
