Stampin’ Up Shimmer Tea Together

Good Sunday morning my fellow stampers.  How is everyone doing today?  Is anyone doing anything this weekend?  I’m going to work and if today is like the past couple weekends, it’s going to be crazy busy.

I have another clean and simple card for you today using one of my favorite stamp sets that’ll be retiring soon.  Here’s my card for today.

My design is from Inspire. Create. Challenge #068.  Here is their sketch.

I also joined in with Shopping Our Stash Challenge #419.  Their theme is ‘Mother’s Day’

I started by embossing a panel of Soft Sea Foam cardstock using the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder.  Using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, I adhered it to a Noble Peacock Specialty Designer Series Paper card front.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the tea cup from the Stampin’ Up! Tea Together Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I stamped the rose bud image from the Tea Together stamp set on the tea cup in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the rose bud images in using my Old Olive and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends markers.  I colored the edges of the tea cup in using my Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the image out using my Tea Time Dies.

I wrapped a piece of the Gold 1/4″ Shimmer Ribbon around the card front and tied a bow.  I adhered the teacup to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Greetings Cling Stamp Set in Old Olive Ink on a thin strip of Whisper White cardstock.  I adhered the sentiment to the tea cup using Snail.  I adhered the card front to a Soft Sea Foam card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Gold Glitter Enamel Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the tea pot image from the Tea Together stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Friend Like You Photopolymer Stamp Set in the center of the tea pot in Old Olive Ink.  I added a little shading to the tea pot using my Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to an Old Olive mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Soft Sea Foam card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the tea cup image from the Tea Together stamp set on the envelope front.  I stamped the sentiment from the Tea Together stamp set in Old Olive Ink in the center of the tea cup.  I colored the tea cup using my Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the rose bud image from the Tea Together stamp set on the corners of the envelope flap and the larger rose image from the Tea Together stamp set in the center of the envelope flap all in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the images in using my Old Olive and So Saffron 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! All Dressed To Impress CAS

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends.  How has everyone’s weekend started off?  We are having a beautiful spring day here.  They actually did open the parks today, but not the playgrounds.  I’m thinking since I have the day off and it’s so nice out, I may take my little fur baby and head out for a nice long walk.

For today I have a very quick and easy card for you using some retiring DSP and a stamp set and dies that are carrying over to the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.  Here’s my card.

My design is from CAS Colour & Sketch Challenge #368.  Here is their sketch.

I adhered a 2 panels of Best Dressed Designer Series Paper to a panel of Whisper White cardstock using Snail.

I wrapped a piece of the Mint macaron 1/8″ Sheer Linen Ribbon around where the DSP meets in the middle and tied a bow.  I adhered the panel to a Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Dressed To Impress Photopolymer Stamp Set in Pretty Peacock Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using the All Dressed Up Dies and adhered it over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Just a reminder that although this set is carrying over to the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog, the bundle price is not.  If you purchase this set now as a bundle you can save yourself 10%.   I added a couple Purple Posy 2019-2021 In-Color Faceted Dots on either side of the sentiment.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Moments Cling Stamp Set in Pretty Peacock Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the flower images from the Dressed To Impress stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on 2 of the corners of the panel.  I colored the flowers in using my Mint Macaron and Purple Posy Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Mint Macaron mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the flower image from the Dressed To Impress stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the bottom front of the envelope.  I colored the images in using my Mint Macaron and Purple Posy Stampin ‘ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of Best Dressed 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! Grateful We Are Friends

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends.  How is everyone’s week going?  We’re halfway through and almost to the weekend again.  We are still quarantined here in NJ, so I won’t be going anywhere except to work.

I’ve been making a lot of Mother’s Day cards lately, in case you haven’t noticed.  I like to send them out to my family and friends. Today I have another one for you using a set that will be carrying over to the new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.  Here’s my card for today.

My colors were inspired by Sunday Stamps Color Challenge #229.  Here are their colors.

My design is from Paper Players Sketch Challenge #488.  Here is their sketch.

I started by cutting a panel of Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper using the largest Stitched Rectangle Die.  I adhered it to a Pretty Peacock mat using Snail and adhered it to a Pool Party card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the large flower image from the Stampin’ Up! Band Together Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the image in using my Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green and Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends Markers.  The top flower is the Daffodil Delight and the bottom is the Mango Melody, but you can’t really see the difference in the photo.  I cut the image out using the 4th largest Stitched Rectangle Die and adhered it to a Pretty Peacock mat using Snail.  I adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock, I stamped the butterfly image from the Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Gala Photopolymer Stamp Set, in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I stamped the fill images from the Butterfly Gala stamp set in using Mango Melody Ink.  I punched the image out using my Butterfly Duet Punch.  I brushed the butterfly with my Clear Wink of Stella to give it a little shimmer.  I stamped the butterflies antenna on the flower in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and adhered the butterfly to the artwork using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I stamped the sentiment from the Band Together stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a Whisper White panel and cut it out using the smallest oval from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I adhered the sentiment to the bottom of the artwork using Glue Dots.  I tied a small bow using the Pretty Peacock/Old Olive 3/8″ Reversible Ribbon and adhered it to the sentiment using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the large flower image from the Band Together stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink on a Whisper White panel, stamping off 3 times to get a very light image.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Strong & Beautiful Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pretty Peacock mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Pool Party card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the large flower image from the Band Together stamp set on either side of the envelope front.  I colored the images in using my Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green and Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of Peaceful Poppies 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! Tropical Hello

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  How has everyone’s week started off?  I’ve got a busy week ahead.  Today is my only day off 😦  Normally I only work on Monday’s and Wednesday’s, but it’s the end of the month and the 1st of May on Friday, so I have to work.  I don’t know about you, but April was a big blur to me.  When I was sitting at my desk yesterday I looked at the calendar and didn’t even realize that the month was just about over.  All my days are just blending together lately.

Today I used some more of the retiring items for my card.  I want to use them as much as possible because once they are gone, I won’t use them.  Here’s my card for today.

My colors were inspired by Fab Friday Color Challenge # 188.  Here are their colors.

My sketch is from Just Add Ink Challenge #502.  Here is their sketch.

I joined in with Always Fun Challenge #160 also.  There theme challenge is to use ‘Embossing Folders’.

I started by embossing a Pool Party card front using the Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder.  I embossed the top 1/3 then turned the cardstock around leaving about 3/4″ and embossed the bottom section.   I wrapped a piece of the 5/16″ Braided Burlap Trim around the un-embossed section and secured it on the back of the panel using Snail.  I adhered a strip of Grapefruit Grove cardstock just under the trim using Snail.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tropical Cling Stamp Set in Crumb Cake Ink.  I cut the panel using the 2nd largest square from the Stitched Shapes Dies, making sure the sentiment was in the top right corner.  I cut a scalloped square from a panel of Whisper White cardstock using my Layering Squares Dies.  I adhered the stitched square to the scalloped square using Snail.

On a panel of Blushing Bride cardstock I stamped the hibiscus flower from the Timeless Tropical stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink.  I highlighted the center of the flower using my Blushing Bride Stampin’ Write Marker and added some Clear Wink of Stella to the center of the flower.  I cut the image out using my In The Tropics Dies.  On a panel of Pool Party cardstock I stamped the leaf image from the Timeless Tropical stamp set in Bermuda Bay Ink 3 times.  I cut the images out using my In The Tropics Dies.  I adhered the leaves to the back of the flower using Glue Dots and adhered the flower to the sentiment square using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a Tropical Oasis Trinket just under the sentiment using a Glue Dot.  I adhered the card front to a Pool Party card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Grapefruit Grove Gingham Gala Adhesive-Backed Sequins to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Strong & Beautiful Cling Stamp Set in Crumb Cake Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the hibiscus image from the Timeless Tropical stamp set in Blushing Bride Ink on the bottom of the panel.  Using the masking technique, I stamped the leaves from the Timeless Tropical stamp set around the flower in Pool Party Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Blushing Bride mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Pool Party card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the hibiscus from the Timeless Tropical stamp set in Blushing Bride Ink on the bottom front of the envelope.  I stamped the leaf image from the Timeless Tropical stamp set in Pool Party Ink around the flower and on the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Although the stamp set and dies will be carrying over to the new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog, the bundle pricing will not.  You can still save 10% by purchasing this bundle before June 2nd. Don’t forget, the Grapefruit Grove cardstock, Tropical Oasis Trinkets, Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder, the Braided Burlap Trim and the Gingham Gala Adhesive-Backed Sequins are all retiring.  Now’s the time to grab them before they’re gone.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Friends Like You

Good Monday morning my stamping friends.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Saturday was a beautiful day here, but Sunday was rainy and chilly.  Sorry I missed yesterday posting.  I got a call at 6am from one of my cashiers telling me she was at the vet with her dog and wouldn’t be able to get in to work on time.  Of course I had to go in and cover for her, so I didn’t have time to get my post done for you.

Today’s card uses some of the 2018-2020 retiring colors, one of them is not my favorite.  My team leader, Amy, thinks she is going to get me to start liking yellow.  I don’t think it is going to happen, though I do like it in my card.  Here’s what I made for today.

My sketch is from Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #432.  Here is their sketch.

My colors are from CAS Colours & Sketch Challenge #367.  Here are their colors.

I started by stamping the rose bud image from the Stampin’ Up! Tea Together Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink across a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I am definitely going to miss this stamp set.  I colored the images in using my Call Me Clover and Pineapple Punch Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Positive Thoughts Cling Stamp Set in Blueberry Bushel Ink below the row of rose buds.  I adhered the Whisper White card front to a Pineapple Punch mat using Snail.

I cut a scalloped oval using my Layering Ovals Dies out of a panel of Blueberry Bushel cardstock.  I then cut the center out using a solid oval from the Layering Ovals Dies that was 2 sizes smaller.  I adhered the oval to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the large rose image from the Tea Together stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the image in using my Call Me Clover and Pineapple Punch Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the image out using my Tea Time Dies and adhered it to the oval using Glue Dots.  I adhered the card front to a Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I added a few Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Tea Together stamp set in Blueberry Bushel Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I adhered a strip of Call Me Clover cardstock to the bottom of the panel using Snail.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pineapple Punch mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the rose bud image from the Tea Together stamp set 5 times.  I colored the images in using my Call Me Clover and Pineapple Punch Stampin’ Blends Markers  and cut all the images out using my Tea Time Dies.  I adhered the rose buds to the bottom of the Whisper White panel just under the Call Me Clover strip Using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the large rose image from the Tea Together stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the bottom front and the envelope flap.  I colored the images in using my Call Me Clover and Pineapple Punch Stampin’ Blends Markers.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try.  The Tea Together stamp set, 2018-2020 In-Color cardstock, Ink, Stampin’ Blends Markers and the Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots are all retiring soon.  If you like these items, don’t wait. Grab them while they are still available.  These items are going fast.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Ornate From All Of Us for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday.  How was everyone’s week?

Today’s card is one that I demonstrated on our Facebook Live Event last Saturday.  Here is the link if you’d like to watch it.  https://creativestampingdesigns.com/…/stampin-up-ornate-ho…/    These cards are the same, but just a little different.  One I made as a book fold and the other a tent fold.  I have both cards here that I  will explain.  The card cuts and products used are below for both cards.  Here are my cards.

With both cards I started by lightly adhering the Early Espresso card front to the Early Espresso card base and the Old Olive card front to the Old Olive card base using a tiny bit of Snail right in the middle.  I cut the Early Espresso card using the Layering Ovals Dies and the Old Olive card using the Stitched Rectangle Dies.  I embossed both card fronts using my Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the Early Espresso card front to the Early Espresso card base and the Old Olive card front to the Old Olive card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Using my Layering Ovals Dies, I cut a panel of Blushing Bride cardstock using the scalloped oval that was larger that the cut oval.  I cut the center of the oval the same size as the  one cut through the card front.  I adhered the frame to the Early Espresso card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I wrapped a piece of Old Olive Ornate Garden 1/4″ Ribbon around the right side of the oval and tied a bow.  On a thin piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Thanks Photopolymer Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink.  I adhered the sentiment to a Blushing Bride mat using Snail and then to the Early Espresso card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a couple Gilded Gems to the card front.

Using my Ornate Layers Dies, I cut a panel of Terracotta Tile cardstock using the frame that was larger than the rectangle on the Old Olive card front.  I cut the center of the Terracotta Tile frame using the same size Stitched Rectangle Die that I used to cut through the card front.

I adhered the frame to the Old Olive card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I added a Gilded Gem to the card front.

For the inner card I adhered a panel of Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper to a Blushing Bride card base using Snail.  I adhered the inner card inside the Early Espresso card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue making sure it was centered and opened to the right (opposite of the Early Espresso card).   It will look like photo below.

I added another Gilded Gem to one of the flowers you can see through the card front.

For the inner card I adhered a panel of the Ornate Garden Specialty DSP to a Terracotta Tile card base using Snail.  I adhered the inner card to the inside of the Old Olive card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue making sure it was centered and opened to the right (opposite of a book fold card).  I stamped the sentiment from the Ornate Thanks stamp set in Terracotta Tile Ink on a strip of Whisper White cardstock.  I adhered the sentiment to an Old Olive mat using Snail.  I adhered the matted sentiment to the inner card front using Glue Dots, lining is up through the rectangle card front.  I tied a small bow from the Terracotta Tile Ornate Garden 1/4″ Ribbon and adhered it with a Glue Dot.  I added a couple Gilded Gems to the inner card front and sentiment.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips Photopolymer Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  Using the Ornate Borders Dies, I cut out the flourish on either side of the sentiment.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the smaller Blushing Bride card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  There were 2 heart shapes that cut out of each side from the flourish die, so I added them in the top inside corners of the small and large card bases using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Terracotta Tile Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the daisy image from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Style Cling Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink on the bottom of the panel.  I colored the images in using my Light Mango Melody and Light Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the small Terracotta Tile card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the scroll image from the Ornate Style stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the 4 corners of the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of the Ornate Garden Specialty DSP to the envelope flap.

To finish my 2nd card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the daisy image from the Ornate Style stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the bottom of the envelope front 3 times.  I colored the images in using my Light Mango Melody and Light Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of the Ornate Garden Specialty DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my cards and will give it a try.  If you want to watch the video on the Old Olive card, just click the link above.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Kindness is Always in Style

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends.  How is everyone doing today?  Has anyone been able to start gardening or getting yard work done with all this time being home?  It’s still a little early here to plant flowers, but we did have to start cutting our lawn already and I’ve done some clean up.  We had a couple nights that we got frost again and that damaged some of my plants.  I’m hoping they come back when it warms up.

Today’s card is another version of a card I did last Thursday.  You can see that card here.  That card was a portrait card and I had 2 pieces of DSP left over so I thought I’d use it up making a landscape card.  Here’s my card for today.

I started by very lightly tacking the 2 panels of Best Dressed Designer Series Paper to the Pretty Peacock cardstock with Snail.  Using my Paper Trimmer, I cut all the panels at the same time on a slight angle.  I adhered the 2 pieces of Best Dressed DSP that I wanted, to the Pretty Peacock mat using Snail.  I adhered the matted panels to a Petal Pink card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and then to a Thick Whisper White card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the perfume bottle image from the Stampin’ Up! Dressed To Impress Photopolymer Stamp Set, which I colored just the outline using my Pretty Peacock Stampin’ Write Marker.  I stamped the sentiment from the Dressed To Impress stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink in the center of the bottle image.  I cut the image out using my All Dressed Up Dies.

I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I tied a bow using the Old Olive/Pretty Peacock 3/8″ Reversible Ribbon and adhered it to the bottle using a Glue Dot.  I added a few Pearl Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Dressed To Impress stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the perfume bottle image from the Dressed To Impress stamp set, which I colored just the outline using my Pretty Peacock Stampin’ Write Marker, on the bottom of the panel.  I stamped the flower image from the Dressed To Impress stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink inside the bottle image.  I stamped the color fill image from the Dressed To Impress stamp set in Petal Pink Ink over the flower image.  I stamped the small dot image from the Dressed To Impress stamp set on either side of the sentiment in Petal Pink Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Petal Pink mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the perfume bottle image from the Dressed To Impress stamp set, which I colored just the outline using my Pretty Peacock Stampin’ Write Marker, on the envelope front.  I stamped the flower image from the Dressed To Impress stamp set inside the bottle image in Pretty Peacock Ink.  I stamped the color fill image from the Dressed To Impress stamp set in Petal Pink Ink on top of the flower.  I adhered a panel of Best Dressed 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.  Enjoy the rest of your weekend.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Ornate My Friend

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Are you ready for another week of working from home and social distancing?   I’m ready for this to all be over.  I’m ready to socialize and spend time with friends and family sitting together again.  It’s been pretty cool here in NJ, so wearing the mask hasn’t been too bad. Once it starts getting warm though, I will not be going out if we still have to wear them.

Most of my cards this week are using the Ornate Garden Suite.  Last week I was trying to decide which design I wanted to use for my video on Saturday so I made a few extra.  Here’s my card for today.

I played along with the Joy of Sets Tick Tac Toe April 2020 Challenge #JOSTTT016.  I went right across the top and down the left side.  Here are their sets.

I started by embossing a Terracotta Tile card front using the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder. 

Using my Ornate Borders Dies, I cut both sides of a Whisper White panel using the thinnest die.  I adhered a panel of Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper to the die cut Whisper White panel using Snail then I adhered it to the embossed card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. 

On a small Whisper White panel I stamped the daisy image from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Style Cling Stamp Set twice in Early Espresso Ink. I colored the images in using my Light Mango Melody and Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the image out using my Stitched So Sweetly Dies making sure to leave room at the top for a sentiment.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Thanks Photopolymer Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink.  I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the card front to a Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I added a few Gilded Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Strong & Beautiful Cling Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the daisy image from the Ornate Style stamp set twice on the bottom of the panel in Early Espresso Ink and colored the image in using my Light Mango Melody and Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Terracotta Tile mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the daisy image from the Ornate Style stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the bottom front of the envelope 3 times.  I colored the images in using my Light Mango Melody and Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of the Ornate Garden 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! Hello Fabulous! 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? Hope you are all staying heathly, we’re all good here. 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.  I just love this color combo.

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

My design is from Sunday Stamps Challenge #228.  Here is their sketch.

I started by very lightly tacking the 2 panels of Best Dressed Designer Series Paper to the Blackberry Bliss cardstock with Snail.  Using my Paper Trimmer, I cut all the panels at the same time on a slight angle.  I adhered the 2 pieces of Best Dressed DSP that I wanted, to the Blackberry Bliss mat using Snail.  I adhered the matted panels to a Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Dressed To Impress Photopolymer Stamp Set in Blackberry Bliss Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using the 2nd smallest oval from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  On the same panel of Whisper White cardstock, I stamped the perfume bottle and lipstick images from the Dressed To Impress stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the perfume bottle in using my Purple Posy Stampin’ Blends Markers.  To get the darker purple around the outside of the bottle, I colored it over multiple times.  I colored the lipstick image in using my Blackberry Bliss and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the images out using my All Dressed Up Dies.  I added some Clear Wink of Stella to the images to give it a little shimmer.

I adhered the cut images to the sentiment oval using Glue Dots.  It’s hard to see in the photo, but I adhered some Rose Metallic Thread to the back of the artwork then adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Purple Posy 2019-2021 Faceted Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Dressed To Impress stamp set in Blackberry Bliss Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the perfume bottle and lipstick images from the Dressed To Impress stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the bottom of the panel.  I stamped the lipstick smudge image, (not real sure that’s what it’s supposed to be but it fit), from the Dressed To Impress stamp set in Blackberry Bliss Ink.  I colored the images in using my Blackberry Bliss, Purple Posy and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers and added a little Clear Wink of Stella to the images.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Blackberry Bliss mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the perfume bottle and lipstick images from the Dressed To Impress stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped the lipstick smudge image from the Dressed to impress stamp set in Blackberry Bliss Ink on the envelope front.  I colored the images in using my Blackberry Bliss, Purple Posy and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of Best Dressed DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Have A Beautiful Day

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends.  How has your week been going so far?

Today I was asked to be a Guest Star Stamper for Color Throwdown Challenge #589.  I am beyond thrilled to be doing this.  Here is the card I designed for their challenge today.

Here are the Color Throwdown Challenge #589 colors.

I started by stamped the script image from the Stampin’ Up! Very Versailles Cling Stamp Set in Smoky Slate Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I stamped the leaf image from the Very Versailles stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink over the script image.  I embossed the panel using my Subtle 3D Embossing Folder.

I adhered the artwork to a Real Red mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and then to a Basic Black mat using Snail.  I adhered the matted artwork to a Smoky Slate card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Very Versailles stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink.  I cut the image out using the smallest square from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I cut a Real Red scalloped mat using the Layering Squares Dies.  I adhered the sentiment to the scalloped mat using Snail and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Strong & Beautiful Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the leaf image from the Very Versailles stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink over the sentiment, stamping off once.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Real Red mat using Snail and then to a Basic Black mat using Snail.  I adhered the matted panel to the inside of a Smoky Slate card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the script image from the Very Versailles stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink on the envelope front. I stamped the leaf image from the Very Versailles stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink over the script image on the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of Smoky Slate Neutrals 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!!
