Stampin’ Up! A Good Man

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. We’re halfway through the week and on the downhill to the weekend. Is anyone starting to make plans?

It’s time for another inspiration challenge for The Card Concept. For the next 2 weeks we have a Vacation Time challenge. Here is my card that was inspired from the challenge photo.

I used the Stampin’ Up! A Good Man Cling Stamp Set for my card today. I was inspired by the trees in the photo and the woodgrain in the inspiration photo for my Clean and Layered card. I decided to make a card of a man vacationing and relaxing.

I hope you will take a moment to visit The Card Concept and join us this week to play along with our challenge #157. How are you inspired by this photo?

I joined in with Always Fun Challenges #217, “Layers”.

I started by adhering a panel of the Beauty of The Earth DSP to an Early Espresso card base using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered 2 more panels of the Beauty of The Earth DSP to Early Espresso mats using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the smaller panel to the card front using Stampin’ Seal and the ‘tree’ panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the image from A Good Man stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image in using my Bermuda Bay, Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Ivory, Pool Party and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image out using my Hippo & Friends Dies. From a panel of Early Espresso cardstock I cut the next size larger Hippo & Friends Dies and adhered the artwork using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the matted artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from A Good Man stamp set in Night of Navy Ink. I cut the sentiment out using my Stitched Rectangle Dies. I wrapped a piece of Linen Thread around the sentiment twice and tied a knot. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from A Good Man stamp set in Night of Navy Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I adhered a panel of Beauty of The Earth DSP to the bottom of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the Basic White panel to an Early Espresso mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Early Espresso card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the image from A Good Man stamp set on the envelope front in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image in the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of Beauty of The Earth 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! Hats Off Father’s Day

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone doing today? Hope you all enjoy your shortened week if you have one.

Today’s card is the last card we made at my Stamp Camp card class last night. Everyone seemed to have a good time and left with some very handsome cards. For the last one I got a little harder, by not too hard. When my daughter saw this card she asked if it could be hers to give my husband for Father’s Day. I told her yes and she picked the inside sentiment. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Hats Off Bundle for my card today along with the retiring Well Suited Designer Series Paper.

I played along with The Spot challenge #164Let’s Hear It For The Boys.

I started by adhering a panel of the Well Suited DSP to a Basic Gray card front on an angle using Stampin’ Seal. Using my Paper Snips, I trimmed off the DSP that was hanging over the card front. I adhered the card front to a Merry Merlot card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Merry Merlot cardstock I stamped the hat image from the Stampin’ Up! Hats Off Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I cut the hat out using my Hat Builder Dies. On a scrap of Basic White cardstock I stamped the #1 image from the Hats Off stamp set in Basic Gray Ink and cut it out using my Hat Builder Dies. I adhered it to the hat using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered the hat to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few silver Metallic Pearls to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! A Good Man Cling Stamp Set in Basic Gray Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I cut the small hat out from the Hat Builder Dies from the panel of Merry Merlot cardstock and adhered it by the sentiment using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Basic Gray mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Merry Merlot card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I stamped the hat image from the Hats Off stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White Medium Envelope front. I stamped the ‘DAD’ sentiment from the Hats Off stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the hat. I adhered a panel of Well Suited 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! Beauty of Friendship Masculine Card

Good Monday morning my stamping friends and Happy Memorial Day!!! Please remember the reason we celebrate today. For all those that gave their lives for us, that never made it back home to their families.

Hard to believe another month gone. Is anyone going to or having a picnic today? I’ll be having a small picnic like I do every year. My daughter’s birthday falls near Memorial Day every year, so we always celebrate her birthday with a picnic. Hopefully all this rain we’ve been having will clear up to be an ok day. I think we’ve had all the rain we were suppose to have in April and May in these past 4 days. Today’s card is another one we will be making at our Stamp Camp card class tomorrow night. My design is from my team leader Amy Koenders. She made cards with this design, but different DSP a while back and I asked her if I could CASE it for my class. Here’s my card for today.

I used the new Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Friendship Bundle for my card today along with the Well Suited Designer Series Paper. This DSP will be retiring at the end of June. If it’s paper that you like, get it before it’s gone. I think it’s the perfect masculine paper.

I started by cutting a panel of Well Suited DSP using my Stitched Rectangle Dies. I adhered the panel to a Basic Black mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to a Pacific Point card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

From another panel of the Well Suited DSP I cut the largest tag from the Tailored Tags Dies. I cut the small tag topper from a scrap of Pacific Point cardstock using the Tailored Tags Dies and adhered it to the top using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I threaded a piece of Gray Granite 1/4″ Shimmer Ribbon through the top and looped it so it would hold. I adhered the tag to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Friendship Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I cut the sentiment out using the label die from the Beautiful Trees Dies. I cut another label out from a strip of Pacific Point cardstock. I adhered the Pacific Point label to the tag using Stampin’ Seal then the sentiment label above using Stampin’ Seal. I added a few Matte Black Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! A Good Man Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I adhered a strip of Well Suited DSP to the bottom 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 Pacific Point card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I added a strip of the Well Suited DSP to the front of a Basic White Medium Envelope and a panel to the envelope flap.

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

Stampin’ Up! Soar Confidently Father’s Day CAS

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends. Most of you have a nice long weekend (which I personally think we should have all the time). Hope you have some fun things planned.

Next week I’m having another Stamp Camp card making class and I have another new stamper coming. I’m really trying to think clean and simple, but I always have to add that little extra. Here’s one of the cards we will be making. It’s similar to one I made a couple months ago.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Soar Confidently Cling Stamp Set for my card. This set will be retiring at the end of June, so if it’s one that you really like, I’d grab it now before it’s gone.

I started by stamping the hot air balloon image from the Soar Confidently stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink on a Basic White card front.

I stamped the sentiment from the Soar Confidently stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink on the opposite side of the card front. I embossed the card front using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder. On of my new stampers that came to my class last month just loved the whole embossing technique, so I thought I’d do it again just for her.

I adhered the card front to a Crumb Cake mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and then to a Misty Moonlight card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from Soar Confidently stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the hot air balloon image from the Soar Confidently stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink, stamping off 3 times on scrap paper, over the sentiment. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Crumb Cake mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Misty Moonlight card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the hot air balloon image from the Soar Confidently stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the 2020-2022 In-Color Designer Series Paper to the envelope flap.

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

Stampin’ Up! Hats Off 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 Amy Koenders’ blog, welcome to my blog and thank you for stopping by. The theme this month is “For the Men/Boys”.  We can interpret this however we want.  Here’s my card for today.

I used the new Stampin’ Up! Hats Off Bundle for my card today.

I started by embossing a panel of Night of Navy cardstock using the new Bark 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the embossed panel to a Crumb Cake card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Crumb Cake cardstock I stamped the hat image from the Stampin’ Up! Hats Off Photopolymer Stamp Set in Crumb Cake Ink. I cut the image out using the Hat Builder Dies. On a small panel of Coastal Cabana cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Hats Off stamp set in Night of Navy Ink. I cut the sentiment out using the Hat Builder Dies and adhered it to the hat using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered the hat to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the card front to a Night of Navy card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Metallic Pearls to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the 2 sentiments from the Hats Off stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on a Basic White panel. I adhered the Basic White 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. I cut the small hat from the Hat Builder Dies out of the Crumb Cake panel and adhered it next to the sentiment using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the hat image from the Hats Off stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink on the envelope front. I colored the hat in using my Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of In Good Taste Designer Series Paper to the envelope flap.

Thank you for visiting by my blog today, I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Now that you’ve seen my card, be sure to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects.

Stampin’ Up! Friends Are Like Seashells Sailing Home for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends! Welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. I hope everyone is doing well today. If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we have a Sketch Challenge. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s amazing projects. Here is my card using this weeks sketch.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Friends Are Like Seashells Bundle and the Stampin’ Up! Sailing Home Bundle.

I started by adhering a panel of Sea & Sand Designer Series Paper to a Misty Moonlight card base, only around the edges, with Stampin’ Seal. Using my Layering Circles Dies, I cut a circle out of the center of the card front.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the lighthouse image from the Stampin’ Up! Sailing Home Cling Stamp Set in Sahara Sand Ink. I stamped the starfish image from the Stampin’ Up! Friends Are Like Seashells Photopolymer Stamp Set in Cinnamon Cider Ink and colored it in using my Cinnamon Cider Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the images out using my Smooth Sailing Dies and my Seaside Shells Dies. I stamped the seaweed images from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set, Just Jade on Just Jade card stock and Soft Sea Foam on Soft Sea Foam cardstock and cut the images out using my Seaside Shells Dies. I cut the larger seaweed image from a panel of Pear Pizzazz cardstock using my Smooth Sailing Dies. I stamped a couple of the small seashells from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set on scraps of Sand & Sea DSP and cut them out using the Seaside Shells Dies.

I adhered the lighthouse to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue just on the bottom. On a strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink. I adhered the sentiment to a Misty Moonlight mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the card front across the circle, using Glue Dots. I arranged the seaweed and shells on the side of the circle and adhered them down using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink on the top of a panel of Sand & Sea DSP and adhered it to the inside of the Misty Moonlight card base using Stampin’ Seal. On the panel of Basic white cardstock I stamped the larger sailboat from the Sailing Home stamp set in Misty Moonlight and the smaller sailboat in Basic Gray Inks and cut them out using my Smooth Sailing Dies. I cut another circle from a panel of Basic White cardstock using my Layering Circles Dies. I stamped the cloud image from the Stampin’ Up! Mountain Air Photopolymer Stamp Set in Misty Moonlight Ink, stamping off twice, on the top of the circle. I stamped the bird image from the Sailing Home stamp set in Basic Gray Ink. I adhered the circle to the center of the inside of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the sailboats to the bottom of the circle using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, making sure to be able to see them through the card front.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the lighthouse image from the Sailing Home stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the Sand & Sea 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.

We normally have a family dinner on Palm Sunday, but because of work and Covid we didn’t last year and are not this year again. Hopefully next year things will be back to our normal.

I have a gate card for you today. This is not the one I was going to do on my Facebook live this past Wednesday, I’m saving that one for next Wednesday. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Hot Dog Photopolymer Stamp Set for my card along with the Playful Pets Designer Series Paper.

I started by cutting a panel of Basic white cardstock using the Stitched Rectangle Dies. I stamped the sentiment from the Hot Dog stamp set on the top left of the panel in Tuxedo Black Ink. I stamped the dog, the birthday hat and the bow tie images from the Hot Dog stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink below the sentiment and colored them in using my Just Jade, Seaside Spray and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I adhered 2 panels of Playful Pets DSP to Basic White mats using Stampin’ Seal and then to both sides of the Basic Black card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered the artwork to a Seaside Spray mat, which I cut using the Stitched Rectangle Dies, using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the layered panel to the left side of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I added a Playful Pets Trinket by the sentiment using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Pampered Pets Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the dog image from the Hot Dog stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink and colored it in using my Just Jade, Seaside Spray and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image out using my Stitched Rectangle Dies and adhered it to the center of a Playful Pets DSP panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the panel to the inside of the Basic Black card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the dog and hat images from the Hot Dog stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the front of the envelope and colored them in using my Just Jade, Seaside Spray and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of the Playful Pets 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! Soar Confidently CAS

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends and Happy Valentine’s Day. Hope you will be spending the day doing something you enjoy. I’ll be at working being visited by all the little furry friends and their owners getting them Valentines.

Once again I have something a little different for you today. I thought I would show you how to step up a card from a Beginner Stamper to a Casual Stamper and finally an Avid Stamper. I used the Stampin’ Up! Soar Confidently Cling Stamp Set for all my cards. Here are my cards.

I played along with the Cardz For Guys CAS Clean and Simple Challenge #264.

My first card is for the Beginner Stamper just using Stamp, Ink and Paper. I stamped the hot air balloon image from the Soar Confidently stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock off centered towards the top of the panel.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! By The Dock Cling Stamp Set on the bottom of the panel in Early Espresso Ink. I adhered the card front to an Early Espresso card base using Stampin’ Seal.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Beautiful World Cling Stamp Set in the center of a Very Vanilla panel in Early Espresso Ink. I stamped the hot air balloon image from the Soar Confidently stamp set in Early Espresso Ink, stamping off 3 times, over the sentiment. I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to the inside of the Early Espresso card base using Stampin’ Seal.

I stamped the hot air balloon image from the Soar Confidently on the front of a Very Vanilla Medium Envelope in Early Espresso Ink and adhered a panel of In Good Taste Designer Series Paper to the envelope flap.

For my Casual Stamper you might want to add just a little something extra, but not too much. I stamped the airplane image from the Soar Confidently stamp set in Early Espresso Ink towards the top of a Very Vanilla card front.

I stamped the sentiment from the Soar Confidently stamp set on the bottom of the card front in Early Espresso Ink. I embossed the panel using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to an Early Espresso card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Soar Confidently stamp set in Early Espresso Ink in the center of a Very Vanilla panel. I stamped the airplane image from the Soar Confidently stamp set in Early Espresso Ink, stamping off 3 times, over the sentiment. I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to the inside of the Early Espresso card base using Stampin’ Seal.

For my Avid Stamper I added more layers and embellishments. An Avid Stamper may want to add punches, die cuts, multiple layers and maybe even make a collage card. I did what I would call a basic Avid Card. I stamped the blimp image from the Soar Confidently stamp set in Early Espresso Ink towards the top of a Very Vanilla card front off centered. I stamped the sentiment from the Soar Confidently stamp set in Early Espresso Ink off centered towards the bottom of the card front in Early Espresso Ink. I embossed the card front using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to an Early Espresso mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I weaved one of the slides from the Antique Corners & Slides Elements on a piece of Early Espresso 1/4″ Faux Suede Trim and wrapped it around the matted panel, adhering it in the back with some Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the matted card front to a Crumb Cake card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a couple of the corners from the Antique Corners & Slides Elements to the top of the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Soar Confidently stamp set in Early Espresso Ink in the center of a Very Vanilla panel. I stamped the blimp image from the Soar Confidently stamp set in Early Espresso Ink, stamping off 3 times, over the sentiment. 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.

The envelopes for the Casual and Avid Stampers were done the same as the Beginner Stamper except using the airplane and blimp images.

I consider myself an Avid Stamper, but sometimes can pull off a Beginner & Casual Stamper cards. Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my cards and I was able to explain the different stampers to you. What kind of stamper are you? Enjoy your day. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! A Good Man Masculine

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers. How has everyone’s week started off? Ours has started with a HUGE snow storm. I’ve learned not to believe weather forecasts until they happen, I guess they were right this time. I went into work yesterday, even though the store was closed, to get my bills done and caught up on my work. The walk in was bad, but the walk home was horrible. I couldn’t see the snow was coming down so hard and nothing was plowed or shoveled. That was the best workout I’ve ever gotten just walking to and from work. The snow was at my knees at 1pm yesterday when I walked home and it’s still coming down this morning. This makes up for not having any snow last year. I’ll be heading back into work this morning to finish everything up since I had to leave early yesterday.

I have a masculine card for you today. I always seem to struggle with masculine cards, but every once in a while something will pop in my head and I run with it. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! A Good Man Cling Stamp Set for today’s card.

I started by adhering a panel of the Neutrals 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Thick Basic White card base using Stampin’ Seal.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the image from A Good Man stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink and colored it in using my Ivory and Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image out using the oval from the Stitched Shapes Dies. I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Seal.

On the Basic White panel I stamped the sentiment from A Good Man stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink and cut it out using my Tasteful Labels Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I cut the smallest circle from the Layering Circles Dies from a scrap of Crushed Curry cardstock and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I stamped the bird image from the Stampin’ Up! By The Dock Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink and colored it in using my Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the bird out using my Dockside Dies and adhered it to the circle using a Stampin’ Dimensional.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from A Good Man stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I adhered a strip of Neutrals DSP to the bottom of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Night of Navy mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Thick Basic White card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the image from A Good Man stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and colored it in using my Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of Neutrals 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! Back On Your Feet for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends and welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. I hope everyone is doing well. If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we have a sketch challenge. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s awesome projects. Here is my card for today.

I needed to make a card for a coworker that has suffered from a heart attach this past weekend. I immediately thought about the Stampin’ Up! Back On Your Feet Cling Stamp Set to go with our sketch. Here is our sketch for this weeks challenge.

I started by adhering a panel of Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper to a Pretty Peacock card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I cut another panel of Forever Greenery DSP using my Stitched Rectangle Dies and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Seal.

I stamped the turtle image from the Back On Your Feet stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I colored the image in using my Just Jade, Mint Macaron, Pretty Peacock and Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image using my Stitched Shapes Dies. I cut a scalloped square from a panel of Pretty Peacock cardstock using my Layering Squares Dies and adhered the artwork to it using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the matted artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Back On Your Feet stamp set on a panel of Basic White cardstock in Pretty Peacock Ink. I cut the sentiment out using my Hippo & Friends Dies and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Matte Black Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Back On Your Feet stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the sloth image from the Back On Your Feet stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the side of the panel and colored it in using my Crumb Cake, Ivory, Shaded Spruce and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Mint Macaron mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Pretty Peacock card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of Forever Greenery DSP to the envelope front and a panel to the envelope flap.
