Stampin’ Up! Catch You Later Childs Birthday Card

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends and welcome to the weekend. I hope you have some fun plans in the works. I’ll be prepping all day for our Easter brunch tomorrow. I’m looking forward to getting together with my niece and her daughter. Yesterday I made my Easter Egg bread. I started around 7am and didn’t take the last one out of the oven until 7pm. I made 8 loaves that I’ll be sharing with others. My family couldn’t wait to cut into the 1st one out of the oven and I have to admit neither could I. Here’s a picture of the 1st one out which is about 13″-14″ in diameter. They all came out perfect this year, YAY!!!

Today’s card is one that one of my cashiers asked me to make for her. Her grandson is turning 2 and loves monkeys, so I knew exactly what I wanted to make for her. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Catch You Later Cling Stamp Set along with the 2021-2023 In-Color Designer Series Paper, In the Wild Designer Series Paper, Playful Alphabet Dies and the Hippo & Friends Dies. All these items will be retiring, so if these are products you like grab them while you still can.

I started by adhering a panel of 2021-2023 In-Color DSP to a Soft Succulent card base. I stamped the monkey image from the Catch You Later stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock and colored it using my Crumb Cake, Evening Evergreen, Flirty Flamingo & Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image out using my Hippo & Friends Dies. I cut a panel of In the Wild DSP using the size larger die from the Hippo & Friends Dies and adhered the artwork to it using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered a piece of Evening Evergreen Bakers Twine from the Fan Baker’s Twine Pack on the card front and adhered the layered panel over it using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

From a panel of Evening Evergreen cardstock that I had adhered to a Foam Adhesive Sheet, I cut the letters and number using the Playful Alphabet Dies. I adhered the letters down the side of the card front.

I adhered the #2 on the monkey’s foot on the artwork. I added a few Playing With Patterns Resin Dots to the card front.

I adhered a panel of In the Wild DSP to the inside of the Soft Succulent card base. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the monkey image from the Catch You Later stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink and colored it the same as the card front with my Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the 2 sentiments from the Catch You Later stamp set by the monkey image. From the panel of Evening Evergreen cardstock I cut 2 of the string dies from the Hippo & Friends Dies. I cut 2 of the balloons from the Hippo & Friends Dies from scraps of Daffodil Delight and Real Red cardstock. I adhered the strings to the monkeys hands using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and the balloons to the strings using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the monkey image from the Catch You Later stamp set on the envelope front in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image the same as I did for the card using my Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of the 2021-2023 In-Color 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! Catch You Later Birthday

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends and Happy March!!! How is everyone doing today? I’m normally off today, but it’s the 1st of the month and that means I have statements to print and send out. The good thing is I have off tomorrow, YAY!!!

Today’s card is one that I made for my little nephew who loves monkeys. His birthday was last week, he’s getting so big. Not sure where the time has gone. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Catch You Later Cling Stamp Set along with the In the Wild Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by adhering a panel of In the Wild DSP to an Evening Evergreen mat. I wrapped a piece of the Evening Evergreen 3/8″ Chevron Weave Ribbon around the layered panel and adhered it on the back using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered a smaller panel of In the Wild DSP to an Evening Evergreen mat and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the layered panel to a Soft Succulent card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the monkey image from the Catch You Later stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image in using my Crumb Cake, Flirty Flamingo and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image our using my Hippo & Friends Dies and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and Glue Dots.

On a piece of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Catch You Later stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink and fussy cut it using my Paper Snips. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Playing With Patterns Resin Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Catch You Later stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink on a Basic White panel. I adhered 2 strips of In the Wild DSP on the top and bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to an Evening Evergreen mat and then to the inside of the Soft Succulent card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of the In the Wild DSP to the envelope front 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! Driving By Birthday

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone’s weekend going? I worked yesterday and I’m planning on staying in today. It’s cold here in NJ. I don’t mind it a little cold, but not when it makes my bones cold lol.

I played with one of the Sale-a-bration sets for my card today. It’s a set that I looked at when I first got the brochure and said “what am I going to do with that”. After playing a little with it, I like it, I have many other ideas I just have to get on a card now. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Driving By Cling Stamp Set along with the Brights 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my card today.

My colors were inspired by the Color Throwdown Challenge #675.

I started by adhering Granny Apple Green and Pacific Point panels of the Brights DSP to a Smoky Slate card base. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the car image from the Driving By stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image in using my Light Basic Black, Daffodil Delight and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers. I colored the balloons in using my Wink of Stella brush and my Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green and Pacific Point stamp pads.

I stamped the sentiment from the Driving By stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink above the card image. I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Nut About Squirrels Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink behind the card.

I adhered the Basic White panel to a Smoky Slate mat and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Driving By stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the car image from the Driving By stamp set on the bottom of the panel in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image in using my Basic Black, Granny Apple Green and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers. I colored the balloons the same as I did for the card front. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Smoky Slate mat and then to the inside of the Smoky Slate card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of the Brights DSP to the envelope front and a panel to the envelope flap. I stamped just the balloons from the Driving By stamp set up the one side of the envelope and colored them the same as I did on the card.

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

Stampin’ Up! Season of Fun for The Card Concepts

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. We’re halfway through the week and on our way to the weekend. I’m supposed to be starting and finishing my baking this weekend. As most of you know, it’s been a pretty long 3-4 weeks of me being sick. I’m hoping to feel up to getting my baking done or I may have a lot of disappointed people that wait for my cookies.

It’s time for another inspiration challenge for The Card Concepts. The inspiration photo is Christmas Tree, Decorations of Favorite Card.  I decided to use my favorite card that I’ve made this past year. My card is one that I made back in October at our team Mystery Stamping. My upline Jaimie started doing a Mystery Stamping night once a month with our team. She gives us the measurements of cardstock and DSP. We have to pick the colors, image(s), sentiment and DSP we want to use. This was one of my favorite Christmas cards that I made so I decided to share it again. I just love all the images of this stamp set, but especially this one.

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is stampinupseasonsoffunchristmas1creativestampingdesigns-1.jpg

I used the Stampin’ Up! Season’s of Fun Host Cling Stamp Set along with the Tidings of Christmas Designer Series Paper for my Clean and Layered card.

I hope you will take a moment to visit The Card Concepts and join us for our Challenge HOL21. How are you inspired by this photo? Share your tree, holiday decorations or your favorite card from this past year.

I started by embossing a Soft Succulent card front using the Wintry 3D Embossing Folder. This is a small embossing folder, so I had to emboss one side of the cardstock, then move the paper over and emboss the other side. I adhered a panel of the Tidings of Christmas DSP to the center of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the girl and dog images from the Season’s of Fun stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the images in using my Basic Black, Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Evening Evergreen, Ivory, Misty Moonlight, Petal Pink, Soft Succulent and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers. I fussy cut the images using my Paper Snips. I adhered another panel of the Tidings of Christmas DSP to a Basic White mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the fussy cut images to the bottom of the layered panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. In the layout that Jaimie was telling us to do, we were suppose to adhered the image to the top of the layered panel, mine just wasn’t going to work that way so I had to switch it around.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Snowflake Wishes Photopolymer Stamp Set in Evening Evergreen Ink on the Basic White panel and fussy cut it using my Paper Snips. I adhered the sentiment to the top of the layered panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I tied a small bow using the Evening Evergreen 3/8″ Open Weave Ribbon and adhered it toe the card front using a Glue Dot. I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Merry Snowflakes Cling Stamp Set in Evening Evergreen Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the girl and dog images from the Season’s of Fun stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom of the panel and colored the images in the same as I did for the card front. I stamped the snowflake image from the Season’s of Fun stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink around the girl and dog images, stamping off once. I adhered the Basic White panel to an Evening Evergreen mat and then to the inside of the Soft Succulent card base.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the little girl and dog images from the Season’s of Fun stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and colored them in the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of the Tidings of Christmas DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Seasons of Fun for Amy’s Inkin Krew Team Blog Hop

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers. Welcome to Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop. It’s the 2nd Tuesday of the month so that means Blog Hop Day!! If you are starting with me, be sure to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects. If you’ve hopped over from Akiko Sudano’s blog, welcome to my blog and thank you for stopping by. The theme this month is “Halloween Fun”.  We can interpret this however we want.  Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Seasons of Fun Host Cling Stamp Set along with the Cute Halloween 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by adhering a panel of Cute Halloween DSP on a Basic Black mat using Stampin’ Seal. I wrapped a piece of 3/8″ Glittered Organdy Ribbon, which I colored using my Basic Black Stampin’ Blends Marker, around the layered panel and adhered it on the back with Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the card front to a Flirty Flamingo card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the Halloween image from the Season of Fun stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image in using my Crumb Cake, Flirty Flamingo, Highland Heather, Ivory, Old Olive and Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image out using my Layered Circles Dies. I cut a scalloped circle from a panel of Basic Black cardstock using the Layered Circles Dies and adhered the artwork to it using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! A Wish For Everything Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. Using my Double Oval Punch I punched out the sentiment. I punched out a Basic Black scalloped oval using the Double Oval Punch and adhered the sentiment to it using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Pumpkin Pie Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from A Wish For Everything stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I adhered a strip of the Cute Halloween DSP to the side of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Basic Black mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Flirty Flamingo card base using Multipurposed Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the Halloween image from the Season of Fun stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink and colored it in the same as on the card. I adhered a panel of Cute Halloween DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Counting Sheep CAS Birthday

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends. How has everyone’s week started off? I hope you are having a productive one.

I have a simple stamping card for you today using the masking technique. Masking is where you cover up a stamped image and stamp something over it to look like it is behind the 1st image. I used a sticky note to do my masking, which I stamp the image on and fussy cut it using my Paper Snips. Here is my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Counting Sheep Cling Stamp Set from the Sale-a-bration catalog for my card today

I played along with As You See It Challenge #236.

I also played along with CASology Challenge # 394 ‘MASK’

I started by stamping the 1st sheep from the Counting Sheep SAB stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White card front. I masked the image with my sticky note and stamped the 2nd sheep image from the Counting Sheep SAB stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I masked that sheep also using my stick note and stamped the 3rd sheep in Tuxedo Black Ink. I masked the last sheep with my sticky note and using my Blending Brush I added Balmy Blue Ink to the top of the panel. Once I had the amount of color that I wanted I used my Blending Brush and added Granny Apple Green Ink on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the grass image from the Counting Sheep SAB stamp set on the bottom of the panel in Granny Apple Green Ink, over the brushed Granny Apple Green.

I colored the sheep using my Petal Pink and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the sentiment from the Counting Sheep SAB stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the top of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Granny Apple Green mat using Stampin’ Seal.

I adhered the layered panels to a Basic White Thick card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Counting Sheep SAB stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I stamped 2 of the sheep images from the Counting Sheep SAB stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the grass image in Granny Apple Green Ink on the bottom of the panel. I colored the sheep in using my Petal Pink and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Granny Apple Green mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Basic White Thick card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the sheep images from the Counting Sheep stamp set on the envelope front in Tuxedo Black Ink and colored them the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of the Brights 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper 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! Snailed It for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Is anyone doing anything for the weekend? I’ll be at work all weekend, as usual.

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 very much. 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’s my card that I made.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Snailed It Bundle and Snail Mail Designer Series Paper for my card today. It’s such a fun bundle to play with.

I started by adhering a panel of Snail Mail DSP to a Real Red card base using Stampin’ Seal. Using my Paper Trimmer I lined the outside edge of the card at the 3″ mark. I placed the blade at the 3″ mark on the ruler and cut down to the 5/8″ mark. I turned the card base so the bottom is lined up on the trimmer and the side is at the 3″ mark. I place the blade at the 3 5/8″ mark and cut down to the 1 1/4″ mark. I carefully flipped the cut panel around.

I adhered a small panel of Snail Mail DSP to a Bermuda Bay mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the flipped corner using Stampin’ Seal. On a small panel of Bermuda Bay cardstock I stamped the image from the Stampin’ Up! Snailed It Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I cut the image out using the Rectangle Postage Stamp Punch and adhered it the the corner section using Stampin Dimensionals. I added a Resin Heart Embellishment to the punched image.

I fussy cut the snail from another panel of the Snail Mail DSP and adhered it to the corner of the flip fold using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Punch Party Sale-A-Bration Host Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Stampin’ Up! Family Party Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped one of the snail images from the Snailed It stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image in using my Bermuda Bay, Petal Pink and Real Red Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of the Snail Mail DSP to the inside of the Real Red card base using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the Basic White panel to the DSP a little off centered so you can’t see it when the card is closed. I cut out 2 mushrooms using the Snail dies, one in Bermuda Bay and one in Real Red cardstocks. I switched the dots on each mushroom and adhered them to the inside panel using Glue Dots.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the snail image from the Snailed It stamp set on the envelope front in Tuxedo Black Ink and colored it in using my Bermuda Bay, Petal Pink and Real Red Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of Snail Mail DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Special Someone Valentine

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone’s weekend starting off? I actually have the day off, which is very unusual for a weekend with me. I was able to get my entire house undecorated yesterday except for my tree. My husband will be taking that down today, I can’t touch it since I’m allergic to it. I always hate undecorating and having to pack everything away. The good part is, I’ll be bringing out all my snowmen and winter decorations soon, once I give the house a good cleaning.

For today’s card the owner of where I get my hair done asked me to make her a few Valentine’s cards. She wants one for each of her grandchildren and one for her husband. Here’s the 1st one I made for her granddaughter.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Special Someone Photopolymer Stamp Set for my card.

I started by embossing a panel of Magenta Madness using the Lace 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered a panel of Flowers For Every Season 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to the panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I wrapped a piece of Magenta Madness 1/4″ 2020-2022 In-Color Ribbon around the panel and tied a bow. I adhered the card front to a Magenta Madness card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the outline raccoon image from the Special Someone stamp set in Early Espresso Ink. I stamped the fill image in Sahara Sand Ink over the outline image. I stamped a couple of the butterflies from the Special Someone stamp set in Early Espresso Ink by the raccoon and colored them in using my Bumblebee Stampin’ Write Marker. I cut the racoon out using the Stitched Shapes Dies. On the same panel I stamped the heart balloon outline image from the Special Someone stamp set in Poppy Parade Ink. I stamped the heart balloon fill image over the outline image in Poppy Parade Ink, stamping off once. I stamped the string image in Early Espresso Ink. I cut the balloon and string out using the Special Day Dies. Using the Layering Ovals Dies I cut the scalloped oval from a panel of Poppy Parade cardstock. I adhered the raccoon image to the scalloped oval using Stampin’ Seal and adhered it to the card front over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the balloon to the string using a Glue Dot and adhered it to the raccoon using a Glue Dot. I had cut a tiny bow from a scrap of Poppy Parade using the Special Day Dies and adhered it to the string by the raccoons paws using a Glue Dot.

On a strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Special Someone stamp set in Magenta Madness Ink. I cut the sentiment out using the Tasteful Labels Dies and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Family Party Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Stampin’ Up! A Wish For Everything Cling Stamp Set in Magenta Madness Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the outline balloon image from the Special Someone stamp set in Poppy Parade Ink in 2 of the corners. I stamped the balloon fill image over the outline image in Poppy Parade Ink, stamped off once. I stamped a couple of the butterfly images from the Special Someone stamp set in Early Espresso Ink by the sentiment. I colored the butterflies in using my Bumblebee Stampin’ Write Marker. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Poppy Parade mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Magenta Madness card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the outline raccoon image from the Special Someone stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the envelope front. I stamped the raccoon fill image over the outline image in Sahara Sand Ink. I adhered a panel of the Flowers For Every Season DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Oh Snap Sneak Peek

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s Christmas? I had a very quiet one this year, it was just my husband, daughter and I at home. We usually have all the family over for Christmas Eve, but with everything going on right now, I felt better with no one coming over. I hope you were all able to spend some time with loved ones in one way or another. Was Santa good to all of you? Maybe some new stamp sets or DSP.

I have a sneak peek for you of an upcoming set from the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog. I saw this set and my little nephew loves alligators and crocodiles so I just had to get it. It’s the Stampin’ Up! Oh Snap Photopolymer Stamp Set. Here’s my card for today.

My colors are from the Fab Friday Challenge #204. Here are their colors.

I played along with Crazy 4 Challenges #565 using sketch #518. Here is their challenge.

I started by stamping the crocodile, fish and frog images from the Oh Snap stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock. I stamped the leaf image from the Oh Snap stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on the bottom of the panel. I colored the images in using my Poppy Parade & Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends Markers and my Blushing Bride and Pear Pizzazz Stampin’ Write Markers.

I stamped the sentiments from the Oh Snap stamp set in Seaside Spray Ink on the panel on top and center of the crocodile.

I adhered a panel of Pear Pizzazz Subtle 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Pear Pizzazz card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I cut the smallest circle from the Layering Circles Dies out of a scrap of Poppy Parade cardstock and adhered it in the top corner of the card front using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and added a piece of the Seaside Spray 1/4″ Metallic Ribbon to the right side using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the crocodile and fish images from the Oh Snap stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a Whisper White panel. I stamped the sentiments from the Oh Snap stamp set in Seaside Spray Ink on the panel. I colored the images in using my Poppy Parade and Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Poppy Parade mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Pear Pizzazz card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. Since I am hand delivering the card I stamped the whole crocodile image from the Oh Snap stamp set on the front of the envelope along with the fish image. I colored the images in using my Poppy Parade and Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of the Subtle DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today, I hope you like my card. The stamp set I used will be available on January 5, 2021 from the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog. If you need a demonstrator and would like a copy of the catalog, drop me a line at creativestampingdesigns@gmail.com and I will get one out to you. Happy Stamping!!

WHISPER WHITE CARDSTOCK PRODUCTS- AVAILABLE WHILE SUPPLIES LAST

Stampin’ Up! announced this information related to the Whisper White paper products late last evening:

Whisper White has been a Stampin’ Up! staple for so long. We love it and we know you love it, too. We are sad to announce that the supplier’s mill producing our Whisper White cardstock has permanently closed due to impacts from the COVID-19 pandemic. Unfortunately, we weren’t given much notice on this closure. This means that the technology unique to this particular supplier is now unavailable to us and we can no longer offer our Whisper White cardstock and related products, such as Whisper White Note Cards & Envelopes. Please note that this won’t affect any of our other cardstocks, this only affects Whisper White.

We know Whisper White has a huge fan base; we’re big fans, too! And we are crushed that it’s going away. Even though this decision was out of our hands, rest assured that we jumped right into action to find the best replacement paper possible. We have dedicated many hours to source and test alternative cardstock options from several suppliers to find the perfect fit that still maintains the Stampin’ Up! quality you know and trust. We are happy to share that we have found a winner for our new cardstock, Basic White!

The quality of our new Basic White was thoroughly tested by our quality assurance and product teams. It also tested very well with demonstrators and concept artists who gave it a huge thumbs up. We believe in the quality of the new Basic White cardstock and we know it will become your new crafting staple!

What does this mean for you?

With Whisper White going out of production, this means a number of Whisper White products will be affected. Below is a list of all products that will be replaced with our new Basic White cardstock. These items are now available while supplies last with an order limit of 2 per item per order.

  • Whisper White 12″ x 12″ (30.5 x 30.5 cm) Cardstock (124302)
  • Assorted Memories & More Cards & Envelopes (149710)
  • Whisper White Note Cards & Envelopes (131527)
  • Whisper White 3″ x 3″ (7.6 x 7.6 cm) Envelopes (145829)
  • Whisper White 8-1/2″ x 11″ Cardstock (100730)
  • Whisper White 8-1/2″ x 11″ Thick Cardstock (140272)
  • Whisper White Medium Envelopes (107301)

Our new Basic White products will become available to purchase as soon as we have them in stock. This means that some Whisper White and Basic White products may be available at the same time. Additionally, due to the nature of sourcing, some Basic White products may not be available before the Whisper White products sell out. Please know that we are working on getting these products available to you as fast as possible.

Stampin’ Up! Zany Zebras Birthday

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone’s weekend going? I’m heading into work again today. I was hoping to have the day off, but they put me on the schedule. It’s a short day at the dog bakery though, I don’t go in until noon and I’m done by 5pm.

For today’s card a co-worker asked me to make her nieces daughter a 1st birthday card. It took me a bit to come up with something, since I thought I didn’t have anything appropriate for a 1 year old. Then I remembered and here’s what I came up with.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Zany Zebras Cling Stamp Set for my card along with a sneak peek inside of a new set coming in the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog.

I started by cutting a panel of Whisper White cardstock using the largest Stitched Triangle Dies. I stamped the adorable little zebra image from the Zany Zebras stamp set in Magenta Madness Ink on the bottom of the triangle. I added a little color to her stripes, mane and tail using my Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends Markers. I then embossed the triangle using the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder. From that same panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the zebra image again in Magenta Madness Ink and I stamped the sentiment from the Zany Zebras stamp set in Magenta Madness Ink. I used some washi tape to cover the happy part of the sentiment so I would just get the birthday. I cut the sentiment out using the smallest die from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies and I fussy cut the zebra using my Paper Snips, not cutting the mane or the tail. I added some color to her stripes using my Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I adhered the fussy cut zebra on top of the stamped zebra on the triangle using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the triangle to a Whisper White card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I cut all the letters and the #1 from a panel of Rainbow Glimmer Paper, which I adhered to a Foam Adhesive Sheet, using the Playful Alphabets Dies.

I cut 3 of the small balloons out using the Happy Dies one in Granny Apple Green, one in Highland Heather and one in Mango Melody. I embossed the Granny Apple Green and Highland Heather balloons using the Wrapped In Texture Embossing Folder. I cut the 3 strings and 3 bows from a panel of Magenta Madness cardstock using the Happy Dies. I adhered the strings to the back of the balloons using Glue Dots and the bows to the bottom of the balloons using a tiny amount of Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the balloons to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the #1 to the Mango Melody balloon. I adhered the letters to the card front the way I wanted them and adhered the die cut birthday under the happy using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added some Artistry Blooms Adhesive-Backed Sequins to the card front. I adhered the card front to a Granny Apple Green mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to a Magenta Madness card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped a sentiment from a new set coming in the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog, the Stampin’ Up! Many Messages Cling Stamp Set. This is 1 large stamp with 19 sentiments on it. I used my Stamparatus to get just the one sentiment centered on a panel of Whisper White Cardstock. I used my Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Write Marker to ink up just the sentiment I wanted to use. I stamped the zebra image from the Zany Zebras stamp set to the side of the sentiment in Magenta Madness Ink and I stamped the party hat from the Zany Zebras stamp set in Magenta Madness Ink on the opposite side. I added color to the strips on the zebra and the pom-pom on the hat using my Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends Markers. I colored the dots on the hat in using my Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Write Marker. I stamped the grass image from the Zany Zebras stamp set under the zebra in Granny Apple Green Ink. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Granny Apple Green mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Magenta Madness card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the zebra image from the Zany Zebras stamp set in Magenta Madness Ink on the envelope front. I stamped the grass image from the Zany Zebras stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink below the zebra. I added some color to the zebras stripes, mane and tail using my Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of Artistry Blooms Designer Series Paper 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!!
