Stampin’ Up! Amazing Birthday For The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. How is everyone doing today? Hope you are all staying healthy.  If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by my blog. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects today. This week we had a Color Challenge, here are the colors we got to work with.

Here’s what I came up with for these colors.

My design is from Try Stampin’ On Tuesday Challenge #454.  Here is their sketch.

I started by embossing a Bermuda Bay card front using the Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered a panel of Birthday Bonanza Designer Series Paper to the embossed panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and adhered the panel to a Bermuda Bay card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the large image from the Stampin’ Up! Everything Amazing Photopolymer Stamp Set in Bermuda Bay Ink.  I stamped the insert words from the Everything Amazing stamp set in Grapefruit Grove Ink.  I adhered the artwork to a Daffodil Delight mat using Snail.

Using the Ornate Borders Dies, I cut a strip of Whisper White cardstock.  I adhered a thin strip of the Birthday Bonanza DSP above the cut border using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and the border just below the artwork using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Gingham Gala Adhesive-Backed Sequins to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Birthdays Cling Stamp Set in Bermuda Bay Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the balloon image from the Everything Amazing stamp set in Daffodil Delight Ink on either side of the sentiment.  I stamped the streamer image from the Everything Amazing stamp set randomly in Bermuda Bay and Grapefruit Grove Ink on the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Daffodil Delight mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Bermuda Bay card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I adhered a strip of the Birthday Bonanza DSP to the envelope front and a panel on the envelope flap.  I stamped the balloon and streamer images from the Everything Amazing stamp set in Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight and Grapefruit Grove Inks on the bottom front of the envelope.

Stampin’ Up! Special Someone for Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends.  How is everyone doing today?  Welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we had a Sketch Challenge. Be sure to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects .
Here is the sketch we had to work from.

Here’s my card using this sketch.

My colors were inspired by Global Design Project Challenge #237.  Here are their colors.

I also played along with Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge #337.  Here is their Inspiration.

I started by adhering a panel of Mint Macaron Subtle 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Mint Macaron card base using Snail.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the racoon image from the Stampin’ Up! Special Someone Photopolymer Stamp Set first in Early Espresso for the outline then in Soft Suede for the fill color.  I stamped 2 round balloons and one heart balloon from the Special Someone stamp set on the same panel.  I stamped the round balloons first in Mint Macaron and Night of Navy for the outlines.  I then stamped the fill color in Mint Macaron and Night of Navy, stamping off once.  I did the same for the heart balloon, stamped the outline in Melon Mambo and the fill color in Melon Mambo stamping off once.  I cut the images out using the Special Day Dies and I also cut out the balloon strings and the bow.

I embossed a Melon Mambo panel using the Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the embossed panel to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the racoon to the embossed panel using Stampin Dimensionals.  I adhered the balloon strings to the racoon using a Glue Dot and the bow to the strings using a tiny drop of Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the balloons to the top of the strings on the embossed panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  On a strip of Night of Navy cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Special Someone stamp set in Versamark Ink.  I immediately sprinkled it with my White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I adhered the sentiment strip to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a couple Melon Mango Glitter Enamel Dots to the sentiment strip.  I added a couple Night of Navy Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots to the card front and one to the center of the bow.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Special Someone stamp set in Night of Navy Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the racoon image from the Special Someone stamp set on the bottom of the panel, first in Early Espresso Ink for the outline then in Soft Suede Ink for the fill color.  I stamped the mouse image from the Special Someone stamp set on the bottom of the panel.  I stamped the outline image in Basic Gray Ink and the fill image in Smoky Slate Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Night of Navy mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Mint Macaron card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the racoon image from the Special Someone stamp set on the bottom front of the envelope.  I stamped the outline image in Early Espresso Ink and the fill image in Soft Suede Ink.  I stamped the balloon string image from the Special Someone stamp set in Night of Navy Ink.  I stamped the balloon image from the Special Someone stamp set first the outline image in Mint Macaron Ink and the fill image in Mint Macaron Ink, stamping off once.  I adhered a panel of the Melon Mambo Brights 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Birthday Bonanza for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday.  How was everyone’s week?  Are you all ready for the weekend?

For today’s I needed a card for my little nephew who is turning 6.  I was back and forth with what I was going to do and I decided to use some of the new Designer Series Paper from the 2020 January – June Mini Catalog called Birthday Bonanza.  I wasn’t real sure about the Daffodil Delight for a boy, but I thought it would be fun.  I do not have the Bonanza Buddies Bundle, but sure could have used it for this card, so I had to improvise.   Here’s my card.

My colors were inspired by CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge #358.  Here are their colors.

My design is from the Fab Friday Challenge #183.  Here is their sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of the Birthday Bonanza Designer Series Paper to a Pear Pizzazz card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Birthdays Cling Stamp Set on a panel of Whisper White cardstock in Pear Pizzazz Ink.  I stamped the splatter image from the Stampin’ Up! Delightful Day Photopolymer Stamp Set in Daffodil Delight and Grapefruit Grove Inks all around and over the sentiment.  I cut the sentiment out using my Layering Circles Dies.  I cut a circle out of Pear Pizzazz cardstock using the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I adhered the sentiment circle to the Pear Pizzazz circle using Snail.

I cut a panel of Daffodil Delight cardstock using the Rectangle Stitched Dies and then embossed it using my Subtle 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the rectangle to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I cut a thin strip of Pear Pizzazz cardstock into a banner using my Paper Snips and adhered it across the rectangle using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I made banner ends on a piece of 5/8″ Whisper White Flax Ribbon and adhered it over the Pear Pizzazz using Snail.  I adhered the sentiment circle on top of the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a Candle Embellishment above the sentiment.

The inside is where the fun fold comes in.  I took a 5 3/8″ X 10 1/2″ piece of the Birthday Bonanza DSP and scored it at 2 1/4″, 3 1/4″, 4 1/4″, 5 1/4″, 6 1/4″, 7 1/4″ & 8 1/4″ and folded it like an accordion.  It should look like the picture above.

I adhered first one side to the inside of the Pear Pizzazz card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and then adhered the other side the same.  You only want to put the Multipurpose Liquid Glue on the 2 1/4″ piece on either side of the accordion.  I cut 3 squares out of Pear Pizzazz cardstock using the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I fussy cut the 3 images from the Birthday Bonanza DSP using my Paper Snips and adhered one to each square using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I arranged the squares the way I wanted them and adhered them using Multipurpose Liquid Glue only on 1/2 of each square.  I stamped the sentiments from the Itty Bitty Birthdays stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I adhered the panel to the inside right of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I adhered a strip of Birthday Bonanza DSP to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I fussy cut another one of the images from the Birthday Bonanza DSP and adhered it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  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!!  Hope you all have a great creative weekend!!

Stampin’ Up! The Gang’s All Meer Birthday

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  How has everyone’s week started out?  Can you believe we are at the end of January already?  It’s hard to believe that we’re almost a third of the way through Sale-A-Bration already.

I needed a card for a 9 year old boys birthday.  Anyone that has boys knows that it’s not easy.  9 is one of the ages that they are not quite old enough, yet they are not babies anymore.  You can’t make them a card that’s too childish or too grown up.  So, with that being said, I used some of the goodies from the Sale-A-Bration Catalog for today’s card.  Here’s my card.

My colors were inspired by Just Add Ink Challenge #489.  Here are their colors.

I got the idea for my background from my Team Leader Amy Koenders.  You can see her card here.

I started with a panel of Golden Honey Specialty Designer Series Paper and colored the stripes using my Call Me Clover, Daffodil Delight and Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the colored DSP to a Basic Black mat using Snail and then to a Call Me Clover card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the meercat image from the Stampin’ Up! The Gang’s All Meer Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  If you look at the stamp, there are 5 meercats, but there are only 4 of us in my family, so I only wanted the first 4.  To get this, I used some washi tape and taped over the end meercat.  I inked up the stamp with the washi tape on, then removed the washi tape before stamping on my paper.  I stamped the cute little gecko image from The Gang’s All Meer stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink next to the meercats.  That is suppose to represent my dog.  I colored the image in using my Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight and Call Me Clover Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the image out using the largest oval from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I stamped the cactus image from The Gang’s All Meer stamp set in Call Me Clover Ink on the same piece of cardstock.  I colored the image in using my Light Call Me Clover and Light Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the image out using the smallest circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies.

From a panel of Basic Black cardstock I cut a mat using the largest oval from the Layering Ovals Dies.  I adhered the stitched oval artwork to the Basic Black oval using Snail.  I adhered the matted artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the cactus image to the right of the artwork using a Stampin’ Dimensional and a Glue Dot.  On a small panel of Call Me Clover cardstock I stamped the sentiment from The Gang’s All Meer stamp set in Versamark Ink.  I immediately sprinkled it with my White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I cut the sentiment out using the smallest oval from the Stitched Shapes Die.  I adhered the sentiment to the left of the artwork using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the cactus image from The Gang’s All Meer stamp set in Call Me Clover Ink and colored it in using my Light Call Me Clover and Light Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the meercat popping out of the hole image from The Gang’s All Meer stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink next to the cactus.  I colored the image in using my Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Birthdays Cling Stamp Set in Call Me Clover Ink 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 Call Me Clover card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the meercat and gecko images from The Gang’s All Meer stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the bottom front of the envelope.  I colored the images in using my Call Me Clover, Crumb Cake and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of the Golden Honey Specialty DSP, which I colored in using my Call Me Clover, Daffodil Delight and Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Blends Markers, 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 Ride With Me Birthday Card

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers and Happy Labor Day to you all.  Hope you are getting to enjoy a day off.

For today’s card I played with a new set to me called Ride With Me.  I had to make a card for a little boy turning 2 who loves trucks.  Here’s my card.

My card joined in with Cardz 4 Guys Challenge #227  Their theme is ‘CELEBRATE’

I started by cutting out the rainbow frame using my Stitched Rectangle Dies.  I cut  the Pumpkin Pie frame using the 3rd & 4th die (starting from the largest and counting down).  I cut the Pineapple Punch frame using the 4th & 5th die.  I cut the Granny Apple Green frame using the 5th & 6th die and I cut the Blueberry Bushel rectangle using the 6th die.  I arranged them all together and adhered them to a Real Red card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  On a small piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the truck image from the Stampin’ Up Ride With Me Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the truck in using my Light Basic Black, Gray Granite, Pineapple Punch and Real Red Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I fussy cut the truck out using my Paper Snips.  I stamped the balloon image from the Ride With Me stamp set on a small piece of Whisper White cardstock using my Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored them in using my Balmy Blue, Granny Apple Green, Pineapple Punch and Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut them out using the Truck Ride Dies.

I adhered the truck and the balloons to the bottom of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Using my Hand-Lettered Prose Dies, I cut out the letters in Whisper White cardstock.  I adhered them above the truck using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a thin strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the Happy Birthday from the Stampin’ Up Well Said Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I adhered to the top of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the truck image from the Ride With Me stamp set in Real Red Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel stamping off once.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Itty Bitty Birthdays Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink over the truck image.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Blueberry Bushel mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Real Red card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the truck image from the Ride With Me stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored it in the same as I did for the card front.  I stamped the balloon image from the Ride With Me stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink across the envelope flap and colored them in the same as I did for the card front.

Thank you for taking the time today to stop by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try.  Enjoy your day off.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up New Wonders for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to Fun Fold Friday.  Hope you are all ready for the weekend, it’s suppose to be beautiful weather this weekend here.

I needed a card for a sweet little girls birthday and I though I would try a new fun fold today that I’ve never made before.  I’m really having fun playing around with new folds for my cards.  I hope you are trying them along with me. I thought I would use one of my favorite Host sets for my card which I think is perfect for a little girl.  Here’s my card for today.

The colors for my card were inspired by Fab Friday Challenge #170.  Here are their colors.

I started by adhering a panel of the Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper to the folded side of my Grapefruit Grove card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I colored a piece of the Silver 3/8″ Metallic Edged Ribbon using my Light Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Marker.  I wrapped the ribbon around the left side of the card front and tied a bow.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the fairy image from the Stampin’ Up Host Exclusive New Wonders Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Magical Mermaid Cling Stamp Set in Blueberry Bushel Ink under the fairy image.  I colored the fairy image in using my Call Me Clover, Crumb Cake, Ivory and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the artwork to a Call Me Clover mat using Snail.  I then adhered the matted artwork to the small Grapefruit Grove card front panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered a few of the Blueberry Bushel Noble Peacock Rhinestones to the artwork along with a Clear Rhinestone Basic Jewel.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up Itty Bitty Birthdays Cling Stamp Set in Blueberry Bushel Ink to the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped another one of the fairy images from the New Wonders stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink above the sentiment on the Whisper White panel.  I colored the fairy image in using my Crumb Cake, Ivory and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers.  Now to assemble.  I adhered the 3/4″ folded edge to the back of the Whisper White panel so that the artwork folded over the inside of my card, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Call Me Clover mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Grapefruit Grove card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card off, I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped a fairy image from the New Wonders stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front and colored it in the same as I did for the card.  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 New Wonders Birthday Card

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers.  Are you almost ready for the weekend?  It’s coming up really quick now.  I never made it to the 4-H Fair yesterday.  We had bad thunder storms and a lot of rain.  I feel bad for all those kids that worked so hard on their projects and with their animals to have the 1st day be rained out.  Today and tomorrow are suppose to be beautiful so hopefully they will have a good turn out.

For today’s card I used a Host Exclusive set.  There are a few sets in the catalogs that are set aside just for hosts to earn.  I used one of my favorites, the Stampin’ Up New Wonders Cling Stamp Set.  I just love the fairy images in this set.  Here’s my card.

I joined in with Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge #320 today.  Here’s their sketch.

I also played along with TGIF Challenge #223.  Here are their colors.

I started by adhering a Coastal Cabana panel of the Brights 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Melon Mambo mat using Snail.  I adhered the matted panel to a Gorgeous Grape card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped one of the fairy images from the New Wonders stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I only colored the hair and skin of the fairy in using my Crumb Cake and Ivory Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the image out using the 2nd largest circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I adhered it to a Melon Mambo scalloped circle mat, which I cut out using my Layering Circles Dies, using Snail.  I adhered the artwork just under the DSP strip using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped the sentiment from the New Wonders stamp set on a strip of Melon Mambo cardstock in VersaMark Ink.  I immediately sprinkled it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I punched the top of the strip using the  Delightful Tag Topper Punch.  I adhered the tag to the card front using a Glue Dot and Stampin’ Dimensional.  I added a small bow that I had made from my Whisper White Solid Bakers Twine and adhered it using a Glue Dot.  I added a few Glitter Enamel Dots to the tag and the card front.

On the inside I stamped another one of the fairy images from the New Wonders stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, stamping off twice, on a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the leaf image from the New Wonders stamp set in all 4 corners in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I stamped the sentiment from the New Wonders stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on top of the fairy image.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Melon Mambo mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Gorgeous Grape card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the fairy image from the New Wonders stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of the Brights 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 We’ll Walrus Be Friends Birthday Card

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  How has everyone’s week started out? I can’t believe that August is here already.  This summer is flying by way too fast for me.

For today I have  a cute birthday card for you using the Stampin’ Up We’ll Walrus Be Friends Cling Stamp Set.  Here’s my card

My card played along with Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #399.  Here is their sketch.

I started by embossing a Seaside Spray card front using the High Seas 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the card front to a Seaside Spray card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped 3 different walrus images from the We’ll Walrus Be Friends stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on 3 squares of Whisper White cardstock.  I colored them all in using my Curmb Cake and Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the 3 pieces of artwork to 3 Seaside Spray mats using Snail.  I adhered the 3 matted artwork squares to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the We’ll Walrus Be Friends stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on a small strip of Whisper White cardstock.  I adhered the sentiment strip to a Seaside Spray mat using snail and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped another one of the walrus images from the We’ll Walrus Be Friends stamp set in the center of a Whisper White panel in Crumb Cake Ink stamping off twice.  I stamped the sentiment from Stampin’ Up Itty Bitty Birthday’s Cling Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink on top of the stamped off image.  I stamped a couple of the walrus images from We’ll Walrus Be Friends stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the top 2 corners of the Whisper White panel and colored them in using my Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Seaside Spray card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped one of the walrus images from the We’ll Walrus Be Friends stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the envelope front and colored it in the same as I did for the card.  I stamped 3 of the walrus images from the We’ll Walrus Be Friends stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the envelope flap and colored them in the same as I did for the card.

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

Stampin’ Up New Wonders for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers. It’s the 2nd Tuesday of the month and that means it’s time for another Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop. The 2nd Tuesday of every month this amazing group of ladies put together a blog hop and you are guaranteed to see some amazing projects. This month our theme is ‘BIRTHDAY’. We can interpret this any way we would like to. If you are starting with me, be sure to hop around to see everyone’s projects. If you’ve hopped over from Karen Finkle , welcome to my blog and thank you for stopping by.

For today’s card I used a new  Host Exclusive stamp set from the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.  Here’s my card.

I joined in with Sunday Stamps challenge #206  Here is their sketch.

I also played along with TGIF color challenge #215  Here are their colors.

I started by adhering a panel of Granny Apple Green Brights 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Night of Navy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the large image from the Stampin’ Up New Wonders Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the image in using my Crumb Cake, Ivory, Granny Apple Green and Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the sentiment from the New Wonders stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on the bottom left of the artwork panel.  I adhered the artwork to a Night of Navy mat using Snail.

On a panel of Pool Party cardstock, I stamped the small leaf image from the New Wonders stamp set in Pool Party Ink on the top and bottom.  I adhered the matted artwork to the Pool Party panel using Snail and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the small leaf image from the New Wonders stamp set in Granny Apple Green in across the top and bottom of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Itty Bitty Birthdays Cling Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink in the center of the Whisper White panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pool Party Mat using Snail.  I adhered the matted panel 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 girl image from the New Wonders stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front and colored it in using my Crumb Cake, Ivory and Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a Granny Apple Green panel of the Brights 6 X 6 DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up One For All Quick and Easy card

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  We’re half way through the week already.  Hope you are all having a good week.

For today’s card I have a quick and easy card for you.  I needed a card for a young girl and I think this fits.  Here’s my card.

I started with a Lemon Lime Twist card base and stamped the front using the Stampin’ Up Sheet Music Stamp in Lemon Lime Twist Ink.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the large sentiment from the Stampin’ Up One For All Stamp Set in Lemon Lime Twist Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Berry Burst mat using Snail.

I adhered the matted artwork to the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the silhouette image from the One For All stamp set in Berry Burst Ink on a Whisper White panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Berry Burst mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Lemon Lime Twist card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope using some of the Animal Expedition Designer Series Paper.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my quick and easy card and will give it a try.  If you liked the stamp sets I used for my card today and don’t have them, they will be retiring as of June 3rd.  So now’s the best time to grab them.      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.
