Stampin’ Up Free As A Bird Friendship Card

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  Hope your week is progressing well.  We’re half way through the week and on the downhill to the weekend.

For today’s card I used the Stampin’ Up Free As A Bird Bundle.  When you purchase the Free As A Bird Cling Stamp Set and the Stitched Nested Labels Dies as a bundle you can save 10%.  Who else likes to save money?  Here’s my card.

I love layers and when I saw this sketch on Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge #317 I knew exactly what I wanted to do.  Here is their sketch.

I started by stamping the larger bird image from the Stampin’ Up Free As A Bird Cling Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I stamped the flowers from the Free As A Bird stamp set around the bird image.  I colored the bird and flowers in using my Crumb Cake, Old Olive, Petal Pink, Pool Party and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the image out using the 4th from the smallest Stitched Nested Labels Dies.  I adhered the artwork to a Soft Suede mat, which I had cut out of the 5th Stitched Nested Labels Die, using Snail.

I took a Soft Suede card front and embossed it using the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered a larger piece of the Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper to a Pool Party mat using Snail then adhered it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered a smaller piece of the Bird Ballad DSP to a Petal Pink mat using Snail.  I wrapped a piece of the Mossy Meadow Linen Thread around the smaller matted DSP and tied a knot. I adhered a bow made from the Mossy Meadow Linen Thread using a Glue Dot.

I adhered the smaller matted DSP to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the matted artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added 3 Pearl Basic Jewels to the bottom right of the larger matted DSP.  I adhered the card front to a Soft Suede card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the flowers and leaves from the Free As A Bird stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the top and bottom corner of a Whisper White panel.  I colored the flowers and leaves in using my Old Olive, Petal Pink, Pool Party and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the sentiment from the Free As A Bird stamp set in the center of the Whisper White panel in Soft Suede Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Soft Suede card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the larger bird image from the Free As A Bird stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the front of the envelope and colored it in using my Crumb Cake and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of the Bird Ballad 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 Daisy Lane Quick and Easy Card

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  We’re halfway through the week and on our way to the weekend.

For today I have a Clean and Simple, Quick and Easy card for you.  This is one of the very few times that I only used one color, not counting white.  I’m trying out some ideas do use for my next class that I’d like to feature the Stampin’ Up Daisy Lane Bundle.  Here’s my card.

I started by coloring a piece of the Silver Metallic-Edged Ribbon using my Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers.  While that was drying, I stamped a Whisper White card front  with the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Daisy Lane Cling Stamp Set in Seaside Spray Ink.  I embossed the stamped card front with my Layering Leaves 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered it to a Seaside Spray mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Once the ribbon was dry, which was pretty quick, I wrapped it around the matted card front and tied a bow.  I adhered it to a Thick Whisper White card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped 2 of the smaller daisies from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Seaside Spray Ink and punched them out using the Medium Daisy Punch.  I adhered the 2 daisies together using a Glue Dot and then adhered it to the card front using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a large Seaside Spray 2019-2021 In-Color Faceted Dot to the center of the daisy.

On the inside I stamped another one of the daisy images from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Seaside Spray Ink on the top and bottom corner of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the Daisy Lane stamp set in the center of the Whisper White panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Seaside Spray mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I stamped the smaller daisy image from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Seaside Spray Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped the medium daisy from the Daisy Lane stamp set on the envelope flap.

Thank you for visiting my blog today.  I hope you liked my CAS, QAE card and will give it a try.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up Lovely Is The Day

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers.  How was your week?  The weekend is upon us again, have you got any plans?  I’m working Saturday, but Sunday, Father’s Day, I have off.  The past couple years I’ve made my husband a Father’s Day brunch, but I’m not sure what we will be doing this year.

For today’s card I used another new bundle from the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.  It’s the Lovely Is The Day Bundle.  The images in this stamp set to me are very whimsical and the Dies that goes with it are so pretty.  The one I used only partially cuts out the image.  Here’s my card.

I joined in with Freshly Made Sketches challenge #392.  Here is their sketch.

I also played along with Stamp Ink Paper challenge #201.  Here are their colors.

I started by adhering a panel of Sahara Sand Neutrals 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Sahara Sand card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the floral image from the Stampin’ Up Lovely Is The Day Photopolymer Stamp Set in Sahara Sand Ink.  I stamped the leaves from Lovely Is The Day stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink and colored the flowers in using my Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blends Markers.  Using the Lovely Leaves Die I cut the image out, which you can see only partially cuts the image.

I stamped the sentiment from the Lovely Is The Day stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink above the floral image.  I adhered the artwork to a Calypso Coral mat using Snail.

On the left side of the artwork I adhered 3 thin strips of cardstock, one Pretty Peacock, one Calypso Coral and one Sahara Sand, using a Glue Dot.  I added a Rhinestone Basic Jewel on each one.  I adhered the matted artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the floral image from Lovely Is The Day stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink on the bottom of a Whisper White panel.  I colored the leaves in using my Pretty Peacock Stampin’ Blends Markers and the flowers in using my Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the sentiment from the Lovely Is The Day stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink above the floral image.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Calypso Coral mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Sahara Sand card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the floral image from the Lovely Is The Day stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink.  I colored it in the same as I did for the card.  I adhered a panel of Sahara Sand Neutrals 6 X 6 DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for visiting my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try.   I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and Happy Father’s Day to any fathers out there.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up Daisy Lane Smile

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers.  How has you week been going?  The weekend is right around the corner.

I’ve used a few new items for today’s card.  I received my Stampin’ Up order from the new 2019-2020 Annual Catalog yesterday and I couldn’t wait to play with my new items.  Here’s my card.

I joined in with  couple challenges today.  First off I played along with Paper Craft Crew Sketch Challenge #339.  Here is their sketch.

Next I played along with Color Throwdown Challenge #546.  Here are their colors.

I started by embossing a Very Vanilla card front using the new Scripty 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the card front to a Calypso Coral card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a smaller panel of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Daisy Lane Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink.  I immediately sprinkled it with Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I stamped the fern image from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink, stamping off once, on the bottom of the panel.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Calypso Coral mat using Snail.

I adhered a strip of the new Pretty Peacock Noble Peacock Foil Sheet to the right side of the matted artwork using Snail.  I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  On a scrap piece of Very Vanilla cardstock, I stamped the medium daisy from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Calypso Coral 3 times.  I punched the daisies out using the new Medium Daisy Punch.  I adhered the daisies together using Multipurpose Liquid glue, then adhered them to the artwork using a Stampin’ Dimensional.  I added a few Night of Navy Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots to the top of the artwork and the center of the daisy.

On the inside I stamped the stem from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink, stamping off twice, on the left side of a Very Vanilla panel.  I stamped the smaller daisy image from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Calypso Coral Ink, stamping off once, on top of the stem.  I stamped the sentiment from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Night of Navy Ink  over the top of the daisy.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to the inside of the Calypso Coral cad base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I stamped the stem from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped the daisy from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Calypso Coral Ink on top of the stem.  I stamped the fern image from the Daisy Lane stamp set along the envelope flap, stamping off once.

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

Stampin’ Up Beauty Abounds Thinking of You Card

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  TODAY’S THE DAY!!!  The 2019-2020 Annual Catalog goes live at 2:00 Eastern Time today!!  I’m so excited, I can’t wait to place my order.  I have to work this morning, but I should be out just in time to be able to order.  Now of course we can order anytime after 2pm, but I just can’t wait.

In the meantime, I have a card for you today.  My Upline is doing a daily challenge for the month of June.  I’m always up for a challenge.  Today’s challenge was Take A Walk and Be Inspired By Nature.  Sometimes I just have to walk away from my craft table to find inspiration somewhere.  So, I took a walk outside.  I saw butterflies on the bushes where I was walking, so that inspired my card today.  They were little white butterflies on the green bushes with pink flowers.  I used the  Butterfly Beauty Dies as the focal part of my card.  I have to be honest with you, this looked a lot easier than it was.  I thought for sure cutting out and putting it right back in place was going to be a breeze, nope, I was wrong.   Take a look.

For my card today I joined in with Fab Friday challenge #164.  Here are their colors.

I also played along with Aud Sentiments challenge #228.   Their challenge is Nature + A Sentiment.

I started with a panel of Shimmery White cardstock and did the shaving cream technique using Soft Sea Foam and Pear Pizzazz Ink Refills.  Once my panel dried I ran it through my die cutting machine using the Butterfly Beauty Dies.  I ran a panel of Soft Sea Foam cardstock through the die cutting machine using the Butterfly Beauty Dies also.

The tricky part came when I had to fit the Shimmery butterflies into the Soft Sea Foam cardstock and adhere it to the Pear Pizzazz card base.  I’ll admit, it took me a couple of tries.  Once I was able to get everything in place, I carefully adhered all the pieces using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I ran a panel of Flirty Flamingo cardstock through my die cutting machine using the more detailed Butterfly Beauty Dies.  I carefully fussy cut the largest butterfly away from the others using my Paper Snips.

I adhered the large butterfly die to the matching one on the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue in just a few spots so that the wings were raised.  On a small strip of Pear Pizzazz cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Beauty Abounds Cling Stamp Set in Versamark Ink.  I immediately sprinkled it with my White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat set it using my Heat Tool.  I made the strip into a banner and adhered it to the right side of my card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added some Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the bokeh dots from the Beauty Abounds stamp set in Flirty Flamingo Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped one of the butterflies from the Beauty Abounds stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink above the dots.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Butterfly Gala Photopolymer Stamp Set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on top of the bokeh dots.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Flirty Flamingo mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Pear Pizzazz card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Since I had the other butterflies cut out from the larger one, I adhered them to the left inside of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the wandering flower image from the Beauty Abounds stamp set on the envelope front in Pear Pizzazz Ink.  I stamped the butterfly from the Beauty Abounds stamp set in Flirty Flamingo Ink  by the flower image.  I stamped the bokeh dots from the Beauty Abounds stamp set in Flirty Flamingo Ink on the envelope flap.

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

On a Whisper White panel, I stamped the 1st part of the flamingo from the Fabulous Flamingo stamp set in Blushing Bride Ink.  I then stamped the 2nd part of the flamingo from the Fabulous Flamingo stamp set in So Saffron Ink.  I stamped the last part of the flamingo from the Fabulous Flamingo stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  Using the new Stitched Nested Labels Dies, that will be in the new 2019-2020 Annual Catalog, I cut the flamingo image out.  I cut a mat out for my artwork using the next size larger of the Stitched Nested Labels Dies in another pattern of the Tropical Escapes DSP.  I adhered the artwork to the DSP mat using Snail.

I wrapped a piece of Black Bakers Twine around the mated artwork and tied a bow.  I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the artwork and card front.

On the inside I stamped the 3rd step of the flamingo image from the Fabulous Flamingo stamp set in Blushing Bride Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up One For All Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on top of the flamingo.  I sponged Shaded Spruce Ink around the edges of the Whisper White panel using my Sponge Dauber.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Tropical Escapes DSP mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Blushing Bride card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated  a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the flamingo from the Fabulous Flamingo stamp set on the envelope front the same as I did for the card.  I adhered a piece of Tropical Escapes DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for visiting my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try.  Don’t forget to check out all the discounted items at my online store. There are tons of great deals, get them while you still can.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up Over The Moon Sneak Peek Fun Fold Card

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s week?  Hopefully you all have a long weekend to look forward to.

For today’s card I have a sneak peek for you from the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog and it’s a fun fold card.  I’ve used the soon to be available Stampin’ Up Over The Moon Cling Stamp Set.  I’ve never been a huge cow fan, but I absolutely love this set.  I think it is just the cutest set and I just love the puns.  I can’t help but smile when I look at the cow images in the set.  Here’s my card.

I’ve joined in with 3 challenges for today’s card.  1st is the Festive Friday Challenge #034.  Here is their challenge.

Next I played along with Global Design Project #190.  Here is their sketch challenge.

I’ve also joined in with Sunday Stamps Challenge #205.  Here are their colors.

I started by adhering a piece of Sahara Sand Neutrals 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper, which will be retiring June 3rd, to the inside and front panel of a Sahara Sand card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped one of the cow images from the Over The Moon stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I colored the cow in using my Light Basic Black, Real Red and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers.    I stamped the sentiment from Over The Moon stamp set on a diagonal in the top left corner of the Whisper White panel in Smoky Slate Ink.  I adhered a strip of Real Red cardstock along the bottom of the Whisper White panel using Snail.  I adhered a thin strip of Basic Black cardstock along the bottom edge of the Real Red strip using Snail.  I stamped the moon image from the Over The Moon stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a scrap of Whisper White cardstock and fussy cut it using my Paper Snips.  I applied Wink Of Stella on the moon to make it shimmer then adhered it on the bottom of the Whisper White panel using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Crumb Cake mat using Snail then to a Basic Black mat using Snail.  I adhered the matted artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals, only on the left half of the artwork.

I adhered another piece of the Sahara Sand Neutrals 6 X 6 DSP to the inside smaller side of the Sahara Sand card base.  I stamped another one of the cow images from the Over The Moon stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink, stamping off 3 times to get a very light image, on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I stamped the sentiment from the Over The Moon stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink over the cow image, in the center of the Whisper White panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Basic Black mat using Snail and then to the inside of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, making sure it was under the front panel.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Wisper White Envelope.  I stamped the cow image from the Over The Moon stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the front of the envelope.  I colored it in the same as I did for the card.  I also stamped the thought bubble from the Over The Moon stamp set above the cow image and colored the heart in with my Real Red Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of Sahara Sand Neutrals 6 X 6 DSP on the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try.  The Stampin’ Up Over The Moon Stamp Set will be available on June 4th for purchase, that’s in just 11 short days.  I hope everyone has a wonderful long Holiday Weekend and you have fun with whatever plans you have.  Happy stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! has posted their retiring lists for the 2018-19 Annual Catalog and 2019 Occasions Catalog.  Head over to my online store to pick up those retiring items now!  They’re only available while supplies last from now through June 3!

A few notes about the lists:

  • Due to high demand for retiring stamp sets, these items will have guaranteed availability until May 24; all other products are not guaranteed and are available while supplies last only.
  • Order deadline to get the retiring products:  June 3, 2019; 11:50 PM (MT)

Please note, some of the bundle items may be carrying over into the new 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.  However, the bundle pricing will go away, so get them while you can at the discounted price!!

Stampin’ Up! Retirement List Clarification

It looks like every single stamp set from the 2018-19 Annual Catalog is being retired and that isn’t the case, the carryover sets are being transitioned to Cling Mount.

The stamp sets offered in clear-mount or wood-mount in the 2018–2019 annual catalog that are carrying over into the 2019–2020 annual catalog will be offered in clear-mount and/or wood-mount until existing inventory has been depleted or until June 4, 2019 (whichever comes first).

If the inventory is depleted, you will be notified of the automatic switch to cling when placing an order for that stamp set. This means that you may end up purchasing select cling stamp sets (in carryover artwork) before they can be ordered from the catalog!  All carryover rubber stamp sets will be available in cling medium only (with the exception of background stamps in North America) beginning June 4, 2019.
