Stampin’ Up! Lacey Wild Rose

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s weekend?  I sure hope everyone staying healthy.  Last week I got a new light for my crafting table, which meant I had to rearrange and clean my table.  While doing so, I came across bits and pieces of cards that I had lying around and never did anything with.  I decided to put some of them to good use and create a card from what I had lying around.  Here’s what I came up with using some of the pieces.

I had an Old Olive panel which I had embossed using the new Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered a Whisper White panel which I had cut using the Stitched Lace Die, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I wrapped a piece of Seaside Spray 1/4″ Metallic Ribbon around the card front and tied a bow.  I adhered the card front to an Old Olive card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! To A Wild Rose Photopolymer Stamp Set in Seaside Spray Ink.  I cut the panel out using the Stitched Nested Labels Dies and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I had a rose image from To A Wild Rose stamp set which I had stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored using my Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I also had some leaves from To A Wild Rose stamp set which I had stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored using my Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers.  The images were all cut using the Wild Rose Dies.  I adhered the die cut rose to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added the leaves under my rose using Glue Dots.  I added a few  Seaside Spray 2019-2021 In- Color Faceted Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from To A Wild Rose stamp set in Seaside Spray Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the rose image from To A Wild Rose stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the bottom of the panel.   I stamped the leaf image from To A Wild Rose stamp set by the rose and on the top of the panel.  I colored the images in using my Old Olive and Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to an Old Olive mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Old Olive card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the rose and leaf images from To A Wild Rose stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink to the envelope front and envelope flap.  I colored the images in using my Old Olive and Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try.  Check your craft area, I bet you may have bits and pieces of cards you started and didn’t do anything with.  See what you can come up with.  We all have a lot of extra time since we’re not supposed to be going out, so it’s the perfect time to clean up our area.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Forever Blossoms

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends.  How has everyone’s weekend been so far?  I had to work yesterday, which was supposed to be a partial day ended up being all day.  So much for people having to stay home.  It was just a crazy busy day.  I’m home today and hoping to finish up some of my spring cleaning.

Today’s card can be used for a lot of different occasions.  I left the sentiment pretty general so I can use it for whatever I need.  Here’s today’s card.

My design today is from Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #429.  Here is their sketch.

My colors are from Color Throwdown Challenge #587.  Here is their color pallet.

I started by adhering a panel of the Neutrals 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to the front of a Thick Whisper White card base using Snail.  Using my Stitched Shapes Dies, I cut 3 circles, one in Mint Macaron, one in Rococo Rose and one in Smoky Slate.  I embossed the circles using my Scripty 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the circles to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue overlapping the DSP halfway.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the large floral image from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Blossoms Cling Stamp Set in Smoky Slate Ink.  I colored the image in using my Mint Macaron and Rococo Rose Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the image out using the matching Cherry Blossoms Dies.  Using Stampin’ Dimensionals, I adhered the floral image to the card front on top of the circles.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Honey Bee Cling Stamp Set in Smoky Slate Ink to the left of the artwork.  I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Honey Bee stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink in the center of a  Whisper White panel.  I stamped the flower, leaves and flower bud images from the Forever Blossoms stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink on the panel.  I colored the images in using my Mint Macaron and Rococo Rose Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Rococo Rose mat using Snail and then 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, leaves and flower bud images from the Forever Blossoms stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink on the envelope front.  I colored the images in using my Mint Macaron and Rococo Rose Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of the Neutrals 6 X 6 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! Positive Thoughts

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Did you get a lot of things done that you’ve been putting off?

For today’s card I used a couple items from Sale-A-Bration that will be gone after tomorrow.  Here’s my card for today.

My design is from Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge #335.  Here is their sketch.

I started by embossing a Smoky Slate card front using the Stone 3D Embossing Folder.  This folder comes as a bundle with the Power of Hope stamp set and is available as a Sale-A-Bration item with a qualifying order.  I adhered a panel of Night of Navy cardstock to the edge of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I colored a small panel of the Sale-A-Bration Flowering Foils Specialty Designer Series Paper using my Light Night of Navy, Old Olive and Real Red Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut a flower out using the 2nd largest circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I adhered the artwork to the embossed card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, letting it over hang a little and trimmed off the edge using my Paper Snips.  Using the next size smaller circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies, I cut a panel of Whisper White cardstock and embossed it using the Layering Leaves 3D Embossing Folder.  I added some Silver Metallic Thread to the back of the stitched circle and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I stamped the butterfly image from the Stampin’ Up! Positive Thoughts Cling Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock and colored it in using my Light Daffodil Delight and Light Real Red Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the butterfly image out using the Nature Thoughts Dies, I also cut the tiny butterfly out from the Nature Thoughts Dies from a Silver Foil Sheet.  I adhered the butterfly to the embossed circle using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the top portion of the sentiment from the Positive Thoughts stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on a strip of Whisper White cardstock.  I made the sentiment into a banner using my Paper Snips and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and a Glue Dot.  I adhered the silver foil butterfly below the sentiment using Multipurpose Liquid  Glue.  I adhered the card front to a Night of Navy card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the bottom portion of the sentiment from the Positive Thoughts stamp set in Night of Navy Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the decorative image from the Positive Thoughts stamp set on the top and bottom of the panel in Night of Navy Ink.  I adhered 2 strips of the Flowering Foils Specialty DSP to either side of the panel using Snail.  I adhered 2 foil butterflies by the sentiment using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Smoky Slate mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Night of Navy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope .  I stamped the butterfly image from the Positive Thoughts stamp set across the bottom of the envelope front in Night of Navy Ink.  I adhered a panel of the Flowering Foils Specialty DSP to the envelope flap which I had colored using my Light Night of Navy, Old Olive and Real Red Stampin’ Blends Markers.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Don’t forget, tomorrow is the last day to earn FREE Sale-A-Bration items.  If there is anything you wanted, don’t wait any longer because they will be gone tomorrow night. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Little Ladybug for Fun Fold Friday

Happy Friday the 13th my stamping friends.  I hope you’re not superstitious about the date, I’m not.  How was everyone’s week?  The weekend is here, hope you are all ready for it, I know I am.  I get to work Saturday at the dog bakery.  We’re having a party for the owners dog for her 1st gotcha day.  They are making a big cake and dogs are invited to the party for some yummy cake (owners too).  Sunday  I’m looking forward to attending our quarterly Team Meeting.  It’s always so much fun to get together with fellow team members to enjoy lunch and stamping together.

For today’s card I made a pretty easy fun fold for you using the Sale-A-Bration Host exclusive stamp set.  Take a look.

My colors were inspired by The Paper Players Challenge #481.  Their colors just screamed spring/summer to me.  Here are their colors.

I also joined in with Global Design Project Challenge #231.  Here is their theme.

I started by embossing a small panel of Bermuda Bay cardstock using the Swirls & Curls Embossing Folder.  I adhered the panel to the front of the Z-Fold using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock, I stamped the flower image from the Stampin’ Up! Little Ladybug Cling Host Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I stamped the flying ladybug on the panel in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the images in using my Bermuda Bay, Calypso Coral and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers.  On a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the ladybug image again and just colored in the left wing with my dark Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blends Marker.  I fussy cut the wing and adhered it on top of the stamped ladybug using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I stamped the sentiment from the Little Ladybug stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the top of the panel.  I adhered the artwork to a Bermuda Bay mat using Snail and then to the embossed card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added 3 Rhinestone Basic Jewels which I colored using my dark Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blends Marker.  I added a Rhinestone Basic Jewel which I colored using my dark Bermuda Bay Stampin’ Blends Marker by the sentiment and a Coastal Cabana rhinestone from the Holiday Rhinestones on the other side of the sentiment.

On the inside I adhered a panel of Birthday Bonanza Designer Series Paper to a Bermuda Bay mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Coastal Cabana card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Little Ladybug stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I stamped another one of the ladybug images from the Little Ladybug stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the bottom of the panel.  I colored the image in using my Calypso Coral and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the panel to a Bermuda Bay mat using Snail and then to the inside of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue making sure it was hidden under the card front panel.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the flower image from the Little Ladybug stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped another one of the ladybug images from the Little Ladybug stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink next to the flower.  I colored the images in using my Bermuda Bay, Calypso Coral and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of the Birthday Bonanza 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! Hello Sunshine Inspiring Iris

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers. We’re halfway through the week already. Hope you are having a productive week.

I have another card from our card class last night that we made.  The ladies were busy making all the cards.  It was another fun night stamping with friends.  Here’s my card.

My colors were inspired by Fab Friday Challenge #184.  Here are their colors.

My design is from Global Design Project Challenge #230.  Here is their sketch.

I started by embossing a panel of Pretty Peacock cardstock using the Basket Weave 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the embossed panel to a panel of Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the matted panel to a Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the outlined flower image from the Stampin’ Up! Inspiring Iris Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink 3 times.  I stamped the stem fill image from the Inspiring Iris stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink on all 3 flower stems over the outlined image.  I stamped the flower fill image from the Inspiring Iris stamp set 2 times with Rococo Rose Ink and once with Petal Pink Ink over the outlined image.  I cut the flowers out using the 2nd largest circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  Using the Layering Circle Dies, I cut the scallop circle that fit the stitched circle from a panel of Pressed Petals Specialty DSP.  I adhered the artwork to the scalloped mat using Snail and I adhered the matted artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Under My Umbrella Photopolymer Stamp Set in Pretty Peacock Ink.  I punched the sentiment out using the Classic Label Punch.  I punched out another label  from Mint Macaron cardstock using the Classic Label Punch.  I cut the Mint Macaron label in half and adhered it to the sentiment label on each side using Snail  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a small piece of Petal Pink 1/4″ Metallic Edged Ribbon, which I tied into a knot, to the artwork using a Glue Dot.  I added a few Rococo Rose 2019-2021 In-Color Faceted Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Colorful Seasons Photopolymer Stamp Set in Pretty Peacock Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the flower fill images from the Inspiring Iris stamp set 3 times on the bottom of the panel, once in Petal Pink Ink and 2 times in Rococo Rose Ink.  I stamped the stem fill image from the Inspiring Iris stamp set 3 times in Mint Macaron Ink below the flower images.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pretty Peacock mat using Snail and then 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 outline image from the Inspiring Iris stamp set 3 times on the card front using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I stamped the stem fill image from the Inspiring Iris stamps set over the outlined images in Mint Macaron Ink and stamped the flower fill image from the Inspiring Iris stamp set twice in Petal Pink Ink and once in Rococo Rose Ink over the outlined images.  I adhered a panel of Pressed Petals 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. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tropical Oasis for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday.  How was everyone’s week? The weekend is here already, have you made any plans?  I’ll be at work all weekend, end of the month and 1st of the month.  The good news is I get to take Monday off, YAY!!

Today’s fun fold card is a pretty quick one.  My daughter has been asking me to make a card using the pineapple from the In The Tropics Dies. Here’s my card.

I started by cutting 2 of the pineapples out using the In The Tropics Dies from So Saffron cardstock.  One of them I poked all the little pieces out and sponged it using my Sponge Dauber and So Saffron Ink.  I focused on sponging only the pointy pieces of the pineapple.  I then adhered the cut out piece to the pineapple that I didn’t punch the little pieces out of using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I cut the pineapple top out of Pear Pizzazz cardstock using the In The Tropics Dies.  I sponged the edges and points of the leaves using Pear Pizzazz Ink and my Sponge Dauber.  I adhered the pineapple top to the pineapple base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I cut the largest oval from the Layering Ovals Dies out of a panel of Soft Suede cardstock.  I embossed it using my Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the pineapple to the embossed oval using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

For the card base I started with an 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″ piece of So Saffron scored and folded at 4 1/4″.  I then cut the front of the card base at 2 3/4″ to the center fold and then up to the top along the center fold.  I adhered a panel of So Saffron to the front piece using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered a panel of Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper to the card front using Snail.

I adhered a strip of the 5/16″ Braided Burlap Trim to the card front using Snail.  I adhered the matted pineapple to the card front over the trim using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  On a small piece of Lovely Lipstick cardstock I stamped the small flower from the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tropical Cling Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink.  I cut the image out using my In The Tropics Dies and adhered it to the left of the pineapple using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a leaf from the Tropical Oasis Trinkets using a Glue Dot, tucked just under the flower.  I added a Lovely Lipstick Happiness Blooms Enamel Dot to the center of the flower.  On a thin strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Timeless Tropical stamp set in Soft Suede Ink and made it into a banner using my Paper Snips.  I adhered the sentiment to the top of the pineapple using Glue Dots.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Timeless Tropical stamp set in Soft Suede Ink in the center of the Whisper White panel.  I stamped the small flower image from the Timeless Tropical stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the bottom corner of the panel.  I colored the flowers in using my Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the bottom of a So Saffron panel using Snail.   I adhered a panel of the Tropical Oasis DSP to the top of the So Saffron panel using Snail.  I adhered the panel to the inside of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated  Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the small flower image from the Timeless Tropical stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the bottom front of the envelope.  I stamped the pineapple image from the Timeless Tropical stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the bottom front of the envelope.  I colored the flowers in using my Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of the Tropical Oasis 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! Winds of Change

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  How has everyone’s week started out?  We’re back to rain here.

For today’s card I used a set from the Annual Catalog.  Take a look.

My colors were inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge #333.  Here are their colors.

My design was from Paper Craft Crew #371.  Here is their sketch.

I started by stamping the large windmill image from the Stampin’ Up! Winds Of Change Cling Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I cut the image out using my Layering Circle Dies.  I cut a scalloped mat from a panel of Lovely Lipstick cardstock using the Layering Circle Dies.  I adhered the artwork to the scalloped mat using Multipurpose Liquid glue.

I stamped the windmill image from Winds of Change stamp set again on a scrap of Whisper White cardstock in Soft Suede Ink.  I cut a small circle out of the image using the Layering Circle Dies.  I colored the small circle image in using my Lovely Lipstick and Mint macaron Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the small circle to the artwork using a Stampin’ Dimensional lining the images up.  On a Thick Whisper White card base I stamped the splatter image from the Stampin’ Up! Painted Poppies Cling Stamp Set in Gorgeous Grape, Lovely Lipstick and Mint Macaron all around the front of the card base.

I adhered the artwork to the center of the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I stamped the sentiment from the Winds of Change stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on a thin strip of Whisper White cardstock.  I adhered the sentiment strip to a Lovely Lipstick mat using Snail.  I adhered the 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 sentiment from the Winds of Change stamp set in Soft Suede Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the tulip image from the Winds of Change stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink, stamping off once, over the sentiment.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Lovely Lipstick mat using Snail and then 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 tulip image from the Winds of Change stamp set on either side of the envelope front.  I colored the images in using my Lovely Lipstick and Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the envelope flap with the splatter image from the Painted Poppies stamp set in Gorgeous Grape, Lovely Lipstick and Mint Macaron Inks.

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