Stampin’ Up! Gorgeous Leaves for Fun Fold Friday.

Good Friday morning my stamping friends. Welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Does anyone have plans for the weekend? I’ll be working all day tomorrow and I believe Sunday too.

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. 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 for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Gorgeous Leaves Bundle and the Stampin’ Up! Love of Leaves Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the SAB Peaceful Prints Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I played along with the Double D Challenge this week. Their theme is ‘LEAVES’.

I started by scoring and folding a Sahara Sand card base at 5 1/2″ & 2 3/4″ to make a Z-Fold card. I adhered 2 smaller panels of the Peaceful Prints DSP to the smaller panels of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I put torn Post-It Notes on the top and bottom of the panel to leave a framed area. I stamped the leaf images from the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink multiple times. Using my Blending Brushes I added some Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie and Cherry Cobbler Ink to the stamped area until I got the color that I wanted. I stamped the small leaves image from the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set in Old Olive Ink randomly around. I removed the sticky notes frame and stamped the sentiment from the Love of Leaves stamp set on the top of the panel in Old Olive Ink. I adhered the stamped panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered artwork to the front panel of the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals only on the left half.

I cut 2 leaves from a panel of Gold & Rose Gold 6 X 6 Metallic Specialty Paper using my Intricate Leaves Dies. I adhered the leaves to the stamped panel using Glue Dots. I tied a triple bow using Linen Thread and adhered it to the leaves using a Glue Dot. I added a few Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the artwork.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Love of Leaves stamp set in Old Olive Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the leaf images from the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink on the 2 corners. I stamped the small leaf image from the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set in Crushed Curry Ink around the larger leaves. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue making sure it’s lined up behind the front panel.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the leaves from the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set in Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive Inks on the envelope front along with the splotch image in Crushed Curry. I adhered a panel of Peaceful Prints 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. If you do CASE this card, please feel free to post it in the comments of my Facebook page under the post. I’d love to see your take on the card. The list of measurements are below if you’d like to stamp along while watching the video. You can watch my video on my Facebook page Here.

Stampin’ Up! Delicate Dahlias

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. Happy September!!! I can’t believe another month is gone. My daughter starts in person school today again, YAY!!! That means I get to start running her to the train station 3 mornings a week to catch a 7:30am train. She’s happy to be going back in person and to meet up with the friends she’s met online from her classes from the last couple semesters.

For today’s card I used one of my favorite Sale-a-bration sets that’s available right now. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Delicate Dahlias Sale-a-bration Photopolymer Stamp Set along with Bloom Where You’re Planted Designer Series Paper for today’s card.

My design is from Sunday Stamps Challenge #264.

I started by randomly stamping the large dahlia image from the Delicate Dahlias SAB stamp set in Pale Papaya Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the leaf image from the Delicate Dahlia stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink around the dahlia images using the Masking Technique. I cut the image out using my Stitched Rectangle Dies. I adhered the artwork to a Soft Succulent mat using Stampin’ Seal.

I adhered 2 panels of Bloom Where You’re Planted DSP to a panel of Soft Succulent cardstock using Stampin’ Seal. I wrapped a piece of 1/2″ Pale Papaya Woven Ribbon around the panel, adhering it to the back using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to a Soft Succulent card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the matted artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Delicate Dahlias stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink. On a small panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the small flower image from the Delicate Dahlias stamp set in Pale Papaya Ink and fussy cut the image using my Paper Snips. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the flower to the end of the sentiment using a Stampin’ Dimensional. I added a few 2021-2023 In-Color Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Delicate Dahlias stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the dahlia image from the Delicate Dahlias stamp set in Pale Papaya Ink on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the leaf image from the Delicate Dahlias stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink by the dahlia image. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Pale Papaya mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Soft Succulent card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basie White Medium Envelope. I stamped the dahlia image from the Delicate Dahlias stamp set in Pale Papaya Ink on the envelope front and the leaf image in Soft Succulent Ink. I adhered a panel of Bloom Where You’re Planted 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! 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! Delicate Dahlias Thank You

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend? I hope you were able to do something fun. We’re in the middle of August already, I feel like it just started.

I have another quick and easy card for you today using the basics, just Stamps, Ink and Paper. Every once in a while I like to make it simple. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Delicate Dahlias Sale-a-bration Photopolymer Stamp Set for my card today.

My colors are from the Color Throwdown Challenge #655.

I started by stamping the dahlia image from the Delicate Dahlias SAB stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White card front. I masked the image by stamping the dahlia on a sticky note and fussy cutting it and placing it over the stamped image. I stamped the leaf image from the Delicate Dahlias SAB stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I stamped the leave fill image over the outline image in Mint Macaron Ink.

I stamped the dahlia image from the Delicate Dahlias SAB stamp set 2 more times on either side of the masked image. I removed the sticky not and stamped the dahlia fill image from the Delicate Dahlias SAB stamp set in Polished Pink Ink over the outline image.

I stamped the sentiment from the Delicate Dahlias SAB stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink on the top of the card front. I adhered the card front to a Polished Pink mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to a Smoky Slate card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Inspired Thoughts Cling Stamp Set in Smoky Slate Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the outline dahlia and leaf images from the Delicate Dahlias SAB stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the leaf fill image in Mint Macaron Ink and the dahlia fill image in Polished Pink Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Polished Pink mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Smoky Slate card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the dahlia and leaf image from the Delicate Dahlias SAB stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I stamped the leaf fill image in Mint Macaron Ink and the dahlia fill image in Polished Pink Ink. I adhered a panel of the 2021-2023 In-Color 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. This beautiful stamp set is another one of the free sets you can earn from Sale-a-bration with a qualifying order of $100.

Stampin’ Up! Friends Are Like Seashells Sailing Home 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 Mary Deatherage’s blog, welcome to my blog and thank you for stopping by. The theme this month is “Celebrate Summer”.  We can interpret this however we want.  Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Friends Are Like Seashells Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Stampin’ Up! Sailing Home Cling Stamp Set. Nothing says summer to me like the beach.

My colors are from Sunday Stamps Challenge #261.

I started by embossing a Smoky Slate card front using the new Timber 3D Embossing Folder (available August 3rd). I adhered the embossed panel to a Night of Navy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the lighthouse image from the Sailing Home stamp set in Night of Navy Ink. I masked the lighthouse with a sticky note and added color to the backgrounds using my Blending Brushes. I added Coastal Cabana Ink on the top of the panel and Smoky Slate Ink on the bottom of the image. I stamped the bird image from the Sailing Home stamp set on the top of the panel in Night of Navy Ink. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Through It Together Cling Stamp Set next to the lighthouse image in Night of Navy Ink. I cut the image out using my Stitched Rectangle Dies. I adhered the artwork to a Night of Navy mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sand dollar image from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink and the seashells in Calypso Coral Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I cut the images out using the Seaside Shells Dies. I adhered the sand dollar and shells using Stampin’ Dimensionals and Glue Dots. I added a few Opal Rounds to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Sailing Home stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the sand dollar image from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the other seashells in Calypso Coral Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Smoky Slate mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Night of Navy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the sand dollar and seashell images from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Calypso Coral, Coastal Cabana and Smoky Slate Inks on the envelope front and 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 Seascape Thanks

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends. How has everyone’s week started off? We’re going back to our heat advisory here again, real feel temps here are expected to be 104. Guess I’ll be doing any outside work early in the morning.

I played around with my blending brushes for today’s card along with the masking technique. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Seascape Bundle for my card along with a lot of colors.

I started by cutting the fish image using the Sea Life Dies from a Basic White card front. This image does not cut out the fish completely. If I wanted it cut out I needed to use my Paper Snips. I cut another fish from a sticky note using the Sea Life Dies. I adhered the sticky not on top of the cut fish on my Basic White panel and began my blending. I started on the bottom with Sahara Sand Ink and using my Blending Brush I added the amount of color I wanted. Using my Blending Brushes I added Pool Party Ink to the top of the panel, Coastal Cabana Ink below that and Bermuda Bay Ink on the bottom above the sand. Once I was done, I removed the sticky note and my fish was nice and clean. I added a panel of the darker end of the Mango Melody Ombre Specialty Paper behind the fish using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped the seaweed image from the Stampin’ Up! Seascape Cling Stamp Set in Just Jade Ink on either side of the panel. I stamped the sand image from the Seascape stamp set along the bottom of the panel in Sahara Sand Ink. Using my Sea Life Dies I cut out the coral image from a panel of Calypso Coral cardstock. I cut the die in half and adhered the 2 pieces on either side of the panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the card front to a Basic Black mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to a Coastal Cabana card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Silver Epoxy Essentials above the fish.

On a strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Seascape stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I cut the one end on an angle using my Paper Snips and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Seascape stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the sand image from the Seascape stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink along the bottom of the panel. I stamped the seaweed in Just Jade Ink on the side and the fish image from the Seascape stamp set in Calypso Coral Ink along the top of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Basic Black mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Coastal Cabana card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the sand image from the Seascape stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink along the bottom front of the envelope. I stamped the seaweed image in Just Jade Ink on the side and the fish image across the bottom in Calypso Coral Ink. On the envelope flap, I used my Blending Brushes like I did for the card front.

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

Stampin’ Up! Pansy Patch Step Card for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Does anyone have any plans for the weekend yet? I will only be at Ace all day Sunday working, I have off from the dog bakery this weekend.

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. 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 for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Pansy Petals Suite Collection for my fun fold card today.

My colors are from the Global Design Project #297.

This is the template to reproduce this card. I really hope you will try it out.

Once I made all the card base cuts, I decorated the card base. I started by stamping the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Pansy Patch Photopolymer Stamp Set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on a strip of Basic White cardstock. I adhered the sentiment to a Fresh Freesia mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the bottom of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered 2 panels of the Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper to Fresh Freesia mats using Stampin’ Seal and then to either side of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the small pansy image from the Pansy Patch stamp set 3 times. Once in Blackberry Bliss full strength, once in Blackberry Bliss stamped off once and the 3rd in Blackberry Bliss full strength with Fresh Freesia over the top. I cut the 3 flowers out using the Pansy Dies. I cut 4 solid leaves, 4 detailed leaves and 2 stems from a panel of Pear Pizzazz cardstock using my Pansy Dies. Using my Sponge Dauber I added some Pear Pizzazz Ink to the detailed leaves. I adhered the detailed leaves to the solid leaves using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and adhered the 2 stems on top of one another using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the stems to a Basic White panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the leaves and flowers to the stem using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Fresh Freesia mat using Stampin’ Seal. I wrapped a piece of Fresh Freesia 3/8″ Open Weave Ribbon around the matted panel and tied a bow. I adhered the artwork to the middle panel of the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a little Bumblebee Trinket near the flowers.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Pansy Patch stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the small pansy image from the Pansy Patch stamp set on the bottom of the panel in Blackberry Bliss Ink using the Masking Technique. I stamped the solid leaf image in Pear Pizzazz Ink, stamped off once and the detailed leaf image in Pear Pizzazz Ink on top of the solid leaves. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Fresh Freesia mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Blackberry Bliss card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the small pansy image from the Pansy Patch stamp set 3 times on the bottom front corner of the envelope using the masking technique. I adhered a panel of the Pansy Petals 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. If you do CASE this card, please feel free to post it in the comments of my Facebook page under this post. I’d love to see your take on the card. The list of measurements are below if you’d like to stamp along while watching the video. You can watch my video on my Facebook page Here.

Stampin’ Up! Back To Back Blooms CAS

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends. I’m very excited to be a Guest Designer for the month of January for the CAS Colours & Sketch Challenge. I used the new Stampin’ Up! Back To Back Blooms Photopolymer Stamp Set for my card. Here is my card for today.

Here are the Colours & Sketch Colors for Challenge #401 this week.

I started by stamping the flower and leaf images from the Back to Back Blooms stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock. I colored the images in using my Bermuda Bay and Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Markers. On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the largest flower from the Back to Back Blooms stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink and colored the image in using my Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends Markers. I fussy cut the image using my Paper Snips.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Lovely You Cling Stamp Set on the top of the Whisper White panel in Tuxedo Black Ink. I embossed the panel using my Subtle 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to a Cherry Cobbler mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the fussy cut flower to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered the matted card front to a Cherry Cobbler card base using Stampin’ Seal and added a few Cherry Cobbler Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the top by the sentiment.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Path of Petals Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel. I stamped the large flower image and the leaf image from the Back to Back Blooms stamp set on the bottom of the panel in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image in using my Bermuda Bay and Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Cherry Cobbler card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the large flower image and the leaf image from the Back to Back Blooms stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and the smaller flower images on the envelope flap. I colored the images in using my Bermuda Bay, Cherry Cobbler and Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Markers.

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

Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals CAS

Good Sunday morning my fellow stampers.  How is everyone’s weekend going?  I have off today, but I will be doing some work around my house.  Time for some fall cleaning to get done.  I have to take down summer decorations and put up the fall.  It was chilly here this morning.  When I got up this morning it was only 40 degrees outside.  A definite sign that fall is here.

I have a Clean And Simple card for you today using the Masking Technique.  I went back to the basics using Stamps, Ink and Paper.  I tend to forget about simple when I’m making cards sometimes.  The very first workshop I went to years ago, we did not do simple cards.  Here’s my card for today.

I’m playing along with Fab Friday Challenge #197.  Here is their sketch.

I started by stamping 3 of the poinsettia image from the Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals Photopolymer Stamp Set in Merry Merlot Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I also stamped the image once on 2 Post-It notes.  I fussy cut the Post-It note images using my Paper Snips to use for my Masking Technique.  If you ever look at a poinsettia, the leaves around the flower are identical to the flower petals.  This is why I wanted to used the same leaves under the flower images.

I placed the Post-It note masks over the center and one of the side images so that I wouldn’t stamp over them.   I stamped the largest poinsettia layering image from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Garden Green Ink over and around the masked images.  I move the side Post-It to the other side image and stamped the large poinsettia image again in Garden Green Ink.  I removed the Post-Its and colored the images in using my Cherry Cobbler, Daffodil Delight and Just Jade Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I stamped the sentiment from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set on a small panel of Whisper White cardstock In Merry Merlot Ink.  I adhered the sentiment to the top of a strip of Merry Merlot cardstock, which I cut into a banner using my Paper Snips, using Stampin’ Seal just on the bottom of the sentiment.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the card front to a Merry Merlot mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to a Merry Merlot card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Merry Merlot Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the poinsettia image from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Merry Merlot Ink on the bottom of the panel. Using the Masking Technique again, I stamped the largest layering poinsettia image from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Garden Green Ink over the image.  I colored the image in using my Cherry Cobbler, Daffodil Delight and Just Jade Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Merry Merlot mat using Stampn’ Seal and then to the inside of the Merry Merlot card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the poinsettia image from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Merry Merlot Ink on the envelope front and flap.  Using the Masking Technique once again, I stamped the largest layering poinsettia image from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Garden Green Ink over the image.  I colored the images in using my Cherry Cobbler, Daffodil Delight and Just Jade Stampin’ Blends Markers.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card using the Masking Technique and will give it a try.  If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to drop me a note at creativestampingdesigns@gmail.com. I’d be more that happy to help you. This is a great technique that only uses Stamp, Ink and Paper, but looks like you did so much more.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Let’s Celebrate You 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?  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 had to work with.

Here is my card using these colors.

I played along with Global Design Project Challenge #243.  They have a Theme challenge this week.  Here is their Theme.

I started by adhering a panel of the Flower for Every Season Designer Series Paper to an Early Espresso card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Using the 5th largest Stitched Rectangle Die, I cut 2 out of a panel of Old Olive cardstock and adhered them to the card front overlapping them in center slightly, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Bumble Bee cardstock I stamped the large sunflower image from the Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers Cling Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink.  I cut the sunflower out using the Sunflower Dies.  I cut a detailed sunflower out of the Bumble Bee cardstock using the Sunflower Dies and adhered it to the stamped sunflower using Multipurpose Liquid Glue only in the center.  I cut the small sunflower center out of a panel of Early Espresso cardstock using the Sunflower Dies and adhered it to the center of the sunflower using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I stamped 3 leaves from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Old Olive Ink on a panel of Old Olive cardstock.  I cut the stamped images out using the leaf die from the Sunflower Dies.  I cut 3 of the detailed leaves out of the Old Olive cardstock using the Sunflower Dies.  I adhered the detailed leaves to the stamped leaves using Multipurpose Liquid Glue only down the center vein of the leaf.  I adhered the leaves to the back of the large sunflower using Glue Dots and adhered the sunflower to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Early Espresso Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using the 2nd smallest Stitched Rectangle Die.  The die was a little short so I cut partway through, removed the die and placed it at the end of the sentiment, turned the cardstock and cut the other side partway through.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front over the sunflower using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I tied a small bow using the new Bumble Bee 1/4″ 2020-2022 In-Color Ribbon and adhered it to the sentiment panel using a Glue Dot.  I added a few Bumble Bee 2020-2022 In-Color Enamel Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Many Mates Cling Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the large sunflower image from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Crushed Curry Ink, stamping off once, over the top of the sentiment.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to an Old Olive mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue 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 large sunflower image from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Crushed Curry Ink on the bottom front of the envelope and on the envelope flap.  I stamped the leaf image from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Old Olive Ink around the sunflower using the Masking Technique.

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.
