Stampin’ Up! Celebration Tidings Haunted Birthday

Good Sunday morning my fellow stampers.  How is everyone’s weekend going?  It was a gorgeous 55 degrees when I awoke this morning, but it was still dark out 😦  I have the windows open, the attic fan on and it is absolutely beautiful sunny day outside.   Yesterday I went to the farm to pick sunflowers, they neglected to tell us that there were no more to pick when we asked.  Instead I picked some Cockscomb, Zinnias and tomatoes.  I also came home with  a big bag full of basil that I spent a couple hours making pesto and freezing the containers.  I think I’m set for just a little while now.  Whatever basil grows now in my pots I will make pesto and use it, seems my family really likes it.

For today’s card it might look like a Halloween card, but it’s actually a birthday card.  My nieces husband loves Halloween and she wanted me to make him a birthday card.  They go all out with decorating for Halloween like I do for Christmas.  Here’s today’s card.

I had a lot of scraps of my Plaid Tidings 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper so I decided to put it on a card.  I cut 1/2″ strips of the DSP, Blackberry Bliss cardstock and Pumpkin Pie cardstock.  I adhered the strips to a Basic Black panel using Stamp[in’ Seal.  Once all the strips were adhered, I cut the panel down to a 3 3/4″ X 5″ panel.

I stamped the large pumpkin image from the Stampin’ Up! Harvest Hellos Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a panel of Pumpkin Pie cardstock.  I stamped the face in the center of the pumpkin and punched it out using my Apple Builder Punch.  I cut the stem out of a scrap of Crumb Cake cardstock.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the spider web image from the Stampn’ Up! Celebration Tidings Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I cut the image out using the Celebration Labels Dies.  On the same panel, I stamped multiple of the spider image from the Celebration Tidings stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and cut them out using the Celebration Labels Dies.  I drew lines coming down from the spider web using my Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker then adhered the label to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the pumpkin to the label using Stampin’ Dimensionals and all the spiders using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I embossed a panel of the Copper Brushed Metallic cardstock using the  Tasteful Textiles 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to a Basic Black card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue on an angle.  I adhered the card front to the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Iridescent Pearls to the card front and brushed the spiders with some Clear Wink of Stella.

On the inside, in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, I stamped  the spider web from the Celebration Tidings stamp set on the top of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the Celebration Tidings stamp set in the center of the panel and the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Well Said Cling Stamp Set below the 1st sentiment.  I stamped the spider image from the Celebration Tidings stamp set around the sentiment and drew lines using my Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker from the web to the spiders.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Blackberry Bliss mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Basic Black card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  In Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, I stamped the spider web and spiders from the Celebration Tidings stamp set on the envelope front and drew lines from the web to the spiders using my Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker.  I adhered the leftover scraps of Plaid Tidings 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! Beautiful Autumn for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends and welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop.  How is everyone doing today?  If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we have color challenge with some beautiful fall colors. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects .
Here are our colors for this week.

Here is my card using these colors.

My design is from Fusion Card Challenge.  I chose to use just the sketch.  Here is their challenge.

I also played along with Daisy Chain Challenge #44.  Their Theme is ‘For Boys/Men’.

I joined in with Global Design Project #255.  They have a Theme Challenge this week. Here’s their theme.

I started by embossing an Early Espresso panel using the Old World Paper 3D Embossing Folder. 

I cut a panel of the Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper using my Stitched Nested Labels Dies.  I adhered the die to the side of the embossed panel, hanging over the edge a bit, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, leaving a spot to insert the sentiment under the die.  I trimmed the edge of the DSP using my Paper Trimmer.  I adhered the card front to a Crumb Cake card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Autumn Photopolymer Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink on a strip of Very Vanilla cardstock.  I adhered the sentiment just under the die cut using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  On a small panel of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the leaf images from the Beautiful Autumn stamp set 2 times each.  I stamped the outline of the maple leaves in Cajun Craze Ink and the outline of the oak leaves in Mint Macaron Ink.  I then stamped the fill image from the maple leaf in Cajun Craze Ink, stamping off once over the outline images.  I stamped the fill image from the oak leaf in Mint Macaron Ink, stamping off once over the outline images.  I stamped the outline image of the acorn from the Beautiful Autumn stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the Very Vanilla panel.  I stamped the top of the acorn fill image in Early Espresso Ink, stamping off once over the outline image.  I stamped the bottom section of the acorn in Crumb Cake Ink, stamping off once over the outline image.  I cut the leaves and the acorn out using my Autumn Punch Pack.  I adhered the maple leaves to the right side of the sentiment using Multipurpose Liquid Glue for the bottom one and a Stampin’ Dimensional for the top leaf.  I adhered the oak leaves and the acorn to the left side of the sentiment using Multipurpose Liquid Glue for the bottom leaf, a Stampin’ Dimensional for the acorn and a Glue Dot for the top leaf.  I made a double loop bow using Linen Thread and adhered it to the top of the acorn using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Beautiful Autumn stamp set in Early Espresso Ink in the center of a Very Vanilla panel.  I stamped the outline of the maple leaf from the Beautiful Autumn stamp set in Cajun Craze Ink next to the sentiment.  I stamped the fill image of the maple leaf in Cajun Craze Ink, stamping off once, over the outline image.  I stamped the outline of the oak leaf from the Beautiful Autumn stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink.  I stamped the fill image of the oak leaf in Mint Macaron Ink, stamping off once, over the outlined image.  I stamped the acorn image from the Beautiful Autumn stamp set in Early Espresso Ink below the oak leaf.  I stamped the top of the acorn fill image in Early Espresso Ink, stamping off once, over the outline image.  I stamped the bottom fill image of the acorn in Crumb Cake Ink, stamping off once, over the outlined image.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to an Early Espresso mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Crumb Cake card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card, I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I stamped the leaf and acorn images from the Beautiful Autumn stamp set along the bottom front of the envelope the same as I did for the card.  I adhered a panel of the Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for visiting my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Now that you’ve seen my card, take a minute to hop through all our projects today.

Stampin’ Up! Beautiful World

Good Monday morning my stamping friends.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Are you all ready to tackle another week?  Tomorrow is a very exciting day for me.  It’s the day we demonstrators get to register for our OnStage event and I’m suppose to be heading to the beach for the day.  One of the greatest perks of being a demonstrator is that we get to attend these conventions, see new items coming, get the catalog early,  have a wonderful prize patrol and best of all get to spend time with our fellow demonstrators. This year will be a little different since they are doing everything virtually.  It will still be fun I’m sure.  I wish I had a larger house, I’d have my local team members over and we could all attend virtually together.  I’m going to miss getting together with my team, it’s such an awesome group of people.

For today I’ve made you a masculine card using the set from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.  Here’s my card for today.

My design is from Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #447.  Here is their sketch.

I started by embossing a Mossy Meadow card front using the Old World Paper 3D Embossing Folder.

I adhered a panel of the World of Good Specialty Designer Series Paper to a Very Vanilla mat using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered the matted panel to the embossed card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Beautiful World Cling Stamp Set in Mossy Meadow Ink. I cut the sentiment out using one of the squares from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I adhered it to a Brass Foil Sheet mat using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered a piece of the Early Espresso 1/4″ Faux Suede Trim to the card front using a couple Glue Dots.  I adhered the matted sentiment over the trim using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the card front to a Mossy Meadow card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Beautiful World stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink in the center of a Very Vanilla panel.  I stamped the quill image from the Beautiful World stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink above the sentiment.  I stamped the ink pot image from the Beautiful World stamp set on the bottom of the panel in Mossy Meadow Ink.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Mossy Meadow mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Mossy Meadow card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I stamped the quill and ink pot images from the Beautiful World stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink on the front of the envelope.  I adhered a panel of the World of Good 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! A Good Man Father’s Day

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends and Happy Father’s Day!!  How is everyone’s weekend going?  By the time you read this, my daughter and I will be elbow deep in cooking brunch for my husband.  Little does he know he’s got another surprise coming to him this morning.  I bought him an outside pizza oven for Father’s Day and he’s making his own dinner, LOL.  He loves making home made pizza and he usually makes it on our grill.  I thought I would treat him to a wood burning pizza oven and I’m sure he will be loving it.  He makes his own dough and all.  I told all my cashiers once he tries it I will have them all over for him to cook for them and there’s enough room to social distance in my backyard.

Since it’s Father’s Day I thought it was only appropriate to make a Father’s Day card.  My daughter needed one, so here’s what I made for her to give.  I don’t know about you, but I am loving the 2020-2022 In-Colors, so that’s what I used today.

My design is from Try Stamping on Tuesday Challenge #462.  Here is their sketch.

I played along with Fab Friday Color Challenge #192 since I had used all the 2020-2022 In-Colors.  Here are their colors.

I started by adhering a panel of Cinnamon Cider 2020-2022 In-Color 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Cinnamon Cider card base using Stampin’ Seal.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the father/daughter image from the Stampin’ Up! A Good Man Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the image in using my Cinnamon Cider, Ivory, Just Jade, Magenta Madness and Misty Moonlight Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the artwork to a Just Jade mat using Stampin’ Seal.

I embossed a Bumble Bee panel using the Tasteful Textiles 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the matted artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.   On a strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! By The Dock Cling Stamp Set in Cinnamon Cider Ink.  I cut the sentiment into a banner using the Banner Triple Punch and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a piece of Misty Moonlight 1/4″ Ribbon, that I tied into a knot, to the sentiment using a Glue Dot.  I added a few Just Jade 2020-2022 In-Color Enamel Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from A Good Man stamp set in Cinnamon Cider Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Best Year Cling Stamp Set in Cinnamon Cider Ink below the 1st one.  I stamped the father/daughter image from A Good Man stamp set in Cinnamon Cider Ink, stamping off twice, over the sentiments.  I adhered a strip of the 2020-2022 In-Color 6 X 6 DSP to the bottom of the panel using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Just Jade mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Cinnamon Cider card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the father/daughter image from A Good Man stamp set in Cinnamon Cider Ink on the envelope front and colored it in using my Cinnamon Cider, Ivory, Just Jade, Magenta Madness and Misty Moonlight Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of the 2020-2022 In-Color 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. I hope you all enjoy the rest of the weekend and are able to spend some time with friends and family or just enjoy a relaxing day. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! A Good Man and Some Blog Candy

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends.  How is everyone doing today?  We are having one of the most gorgeous weekends here.  It’s been in the 70’s with only around 30% humidity.  I’m talking windows open, ceiling fans on all day and night.  Today is our ‘in person team meeting’, I’m really looking forward to stamping online with everyone.  I just have to go into work for an hour to relieve my cashiers and I have the rest of the day off.

For today’s card my niece asked me to make a Father’s Day card for my little nephews to give their dad, so I pulled out what I thought was the perfect set.  Here’s my card.

My design is from the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #439.  Here is their sketch.

I also played along with Cardz 4 Guyz Challenge #246.  Their Theme is ‘Father’s Day‘.

I started by adhering a panel of In Good Taste Designer Series Paper to an Early Espresso card base using Stampin’ Seal.

On a Whisper White panel, which I cut using the largest square from the Layering Squares Die, I stamped the father and son image from the Stampin’ Up! A Good Man Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. I colored the image in using my Balmy Blue, Crumb Cake, Ivory, Misty Moonlight and Real Red Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut a panel of Misty Moonlight cardstock with the largest square from the Layering Squares Die and embossed it using the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the Misty Moonlight panel on an angle to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the artwork to the top of the Misty Moonlight panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! By The Dock Cling Stamp Set in Misty Moonlight Ink.  I cut both ends of the strip using the Lovely Labels Pick a  Punch.  I wrapped a piece of Linen Thread around the sentiment 3 times and tied a knot.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few silver Metallic Pearls to the artwork and sentiment .

On the inside I stamped the father/son image from the A Good Man stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, stamping off twice, in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I cut the sentiment out of a panel of Misty Moonlight cardstock using the Word Wishes Dies and adhered it to the center of the panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Misty Moonlight mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Early Espresso card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the father/son image from the A Good Man stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front.  I colored the image in using my Crumb Cake, Ivory, Misty Moonlight and Real Red Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of In Good Taste 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!!  Now onto the Blog Candy

Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Journey

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends.  How is everyone’s week going?  Hope you are all having a productive one.  We’re already half way through the week and the weekend is right around the corner.

I have a masculine card for you today.  I’m really loving this set more than I thought I would.  Here’s my card for today.

My colors were inspired by TGIF Color Challenge #267.  Here are their colors.

My design is from Fab Friday Challenge #191.  Here is their sketch.

I started by embossing a Crumb Cake card front using the Old World Paper 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the panel to a Night of Navy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered 2 different panels of the World of Good Specialty Designer Series Paper to Night of Navy mats using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered the bottom matted DSP to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the top one using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Crum Cake cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Beautiful World Cling Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink.  I stamped the quill image from the Beautiful World stamp set in Night of Navy Ink next to the sentiment.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Bumble Bee 2020 – 2022 In-Color Enamel Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Beautiful World stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on a Very Vanilla panel.  I stamped the quill image from the Beautiful World stamp set above the sentiment and the ink pot image from the Beautiful World stamp set on the bottom of the panel.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Crumb Cake mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Night of Navy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I stamped the ink pot and quill images from the Beautiful World stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on the bottom of the envelope.  I adhered a panel of the World of Good 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! Birthday Sailing Home

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends.  How is everyone doing today?  We’re halfway through the week already.  I’m not sure where all these weeks are going, but they are just flying by.

For today’s card, I’m using one of last years sets which is one of my favorites and has carried over.  Here’s my card.

My colors were inspired from Inspire. Create. Color Challenge #070.  Here are their colors.  I love these colors together, but it did take a bit for me to figure out what to do.

I played along with The Paper Players Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge #493.  Here is their board.  I went diagonally from the bottom left to the top right, but also added embossed layers.

My sketch is from Try Stamping On Tuesday Challenge #459.  Here is their sketch.

I started by embossing a Rich Razzleberry card front using the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the card front to a Night of Navy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I embossed a Coastal Cabana panel using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder and gently tore the bottom edge.  I adhered the panel to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue only on the top and 2 sides.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the lighthouse image from the Stampin’ Up! Sailing Home Cling Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink on the side of the panel.  I masked the lighthouse by stamping the image on a Post-It note and cutting it out using my Paper Snips.  I placed the Post-It on top of the stamped lighthouse image and stamped the water image from the Stampin’ Up! High Tide Photopolymer Stamp Set in Coastal Cabana Ink, some full strength and some stamped off.

On a scrap of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the small sailboat image from the Sailing Home stamp set in Rich Razzleberry Ink and cut it out using the Smooth Sailing Dies.  I colored just the boat part of the image in using my Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the bird image from the Sailing Home stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on the top of the panel then adhered the sailboat using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the artwork to a Night of Navy mat using Snail and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  On another scrap of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Greetings Cling Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using the Smooth Sailing Dies and adhered it just under the torn layer using Glue Dots.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Birthdays Cling Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the lighthouse image from the Sailing Home stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on the bottom of the panel, stamping off once.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Rich Razzleberry 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 lighthouse image from the Sailing Home stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on the envelope front. I stamped the larger sailboat image from the Sailing Home stamp set in Rich Razzleberry Ink on the envelope flap twice and the smaller sailboat image from the Sailing Home stamp set in Night of Navy Ink in the center of the other 2.

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

Stampin’ Up! Beautiful World

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends.  How is everyone doing today?  Does anyone have plans for the weekend?  I’ll be at work all day today.

I have a masculine card for you today using a new bundle coming in the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog starting this Wednesday June 3rd, YAY!!!  Here’s my card for today.

My design is from Global Design Project Challenge #242.  Here is their sketch.

I started by embossing a Cinnamon Cider card front using the new Old World Paper 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered 2 strips of the new World of Good Specialty Designer Series Paper to the top and bottom of a Cinnamon Cider card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered the embossed panel to the center of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I added the Antique Corners & Slides Embellishments to the 4 corners of the panel using Glue Dots.

I cut a panel of Misty Moonlight cardstock using the World Map Dies.  I also cut a panel of the new Brass Foil Sheet using the detailed globe from the World Map Dies.  I adhered the detailed globe to the Misty Moonlight die cut panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue then I adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Gather Together Photopolymer Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink on a thin strip of Whisper White cardstock.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front, across the globe, using Stampin’ Dimensionals on the ends only.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Beautiful World Cling Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the ink pot image from the Beautiful World stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the bottom of the panel, stamping off once.  I stamped the quill image from the Beautiful World stamp set in Early Espresso Ink, stamping off once, to the right of the sentiment.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Cinnamon Cider mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Cinnamon Cider card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the globe image from the Beautiful World stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the bottom front of the envelope.  I stamped the compass image from the Beautiful World stamp set in Early Espresso Ink, stamping off 2 times, next to the globe.  I adhered a panel of the World of Good Specialty DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card.  Products for my card will be available for purchase on Wednesday June 3rd.  Hope you are getting your shopping lists ready.  Enjoy your day.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Tropical Birthday

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s Memorial Day?  I hope you all enjoyed your day.  It was a beautiful day here. We had a small picnic and enjoyed sitting around just talking and being with people.  My husband was busy with my nieces boys playing bean bag toss and laser tag.  Now it’s back to ‘normal’.  Today is my daughters actual birthday, so I’m hoping to do something with her even if it’s just watching a movie or going for a nice walk.

For today I thought I’d make a tropical card for you using some retiring items and items that are carrying over.  I did use multiple stamp sets for my card. Here’s my card for today.

My design is from CAS(E) This Sketch Challenge #373.  Here is their sketch.

I joined in with Seize The Birthday Totally Tropical Challenge #191.

I started by adhering a panel of Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper to a Pear Pizzazz card base using Snail. 

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the shoreline image from the Stampin’ Up! By The Dock Cling Stamp Set in Crumb Cake Ink.  I stamped the palm tree image from the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tropical Cling Stamp Set, which I colored using my Pear Pizzazz and Soft Suede Stampin’ Write Markers, on the shoreline.  I stamped the bird image from the By The Dock stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink above the palm trees 3 times.  I stamped the water image from the Stampin’ Up! High Tide Photopolymer Stamp Set first in Coastal Cabana then in Pacific Point Inks below the shoreline.  I stamped the small grass image from the High Tide stamp set in Garden Green Ink around the base of the palm trees.  I adhered the artwork to a Pear Pizzazz mat using Snail and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered a piece of the Braided Burlap Trim across the artwork using Glue Dots.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the By The Dock stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink and cut the image out using the smallest circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front, over the Burlap Trim, using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a Ukulele Tropical Oasis Trinket to the card front using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Timeless Tropical stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink in top center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the shoreline image from By The Dock stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink on the bottom of the panel.  I stamped the palm tree image from the Timeless Tropical stamp set, which I colored using my Pear Pizzazz and Soft Suede Stampin’ Write Markers, on the shoreline.  I stamped the bird image from the By The Dock stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink above the palm tree.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pear Pizzazz mat using Snail 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.  I stamped the shoreline image from the By The Dock stamp set on the bottom front of the envelope in Crumb Cake Ink.  I stamped the palm tree image from the Timeless Tropical stamp set, which I colored using my Pear Pizzazz and Soft Suede Stampin’ Write Markers, on the shoreline.  I stamped the small grass image from the High Tide stamp set in Garden Green Ink around the base of the palm trees.  I adhered a panel of 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! Thank You By The Dock for 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?  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.

I started by adhering a panel of the Country Club Designer Series Paper to a Whisper White mat using Snail.  I adhered the matted card front to a Night of Navy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! By The Dock Cling Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using the Stitched So Sweetly Dies, I then embossed the sentiment using the new Old World Paper 3D Embossing Folder (available June 3rd).  I cut a panel of Night of Navy cardstock using the larger die from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.  I adhered the sentiment to the larger die cut using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I stamped the fern image from the Stampin’ Up! Positive Thoughts Cling Stamp Set in Garden Green Ink 3 times on a panel of Vellum cardstock and twice on a panel of Garden Green cardstock.  I cut the images out using my Nature’s Thoughts Dies.

I adhered a piece of the Whisper White 5/8″ Flax Ribbon with a small amount of Snail to the card front.  I arranged the fern the way I liked it on the card front.  I added a little Snail to the back of the matted sentiment  and pressed it down on the fern.  I lifted it all up and added some Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the sentiment and fern and adhered it to the card front.  I added a few Night of Navy Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the By The Dock stamp set in Night of Navy Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the fern image from the Positive Thoughts stamp set below the sentiment.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Garden Green 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 fern image from the Positive Thoughts stamp set on the envelope front multiple times without reinking the stamp.  I adhered a panel of the Country Club DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for visiting my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Now that you’ve seen my card, take a minute to hop through all our projects today.
