Stampin’ Up! Wisteria Wishes Fun Fold Video Tutorial

Good Friday morning my stamping friends welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How are you all doing today? Are you ready for the weekend? I hope you are making some fun plans. I’ll be working both days this weekend in the office at Ace. It’s the end of the month, so I have to close out the books on Saturday and Sunday I have to print and send my monthly bills.

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 new Stampin’ Up! Wisteria Wishes Photopolymer Stamp Set (available May 3rd) along with the 2022-2024 In-Color 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper (available May 3rd) for my Double Z-Fold card today.

I started by stamping the branch image from the Wisteria Wishes stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink on a Basic White card front. I stamped the wisteria image from the Wisteria Wishes stamp set in Orchid Oasis Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper, on the branch. I stamped the detail wisteria image in Orchid Oasis Ink over the image. On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the branch image again in Soft Succulent Ink and the wisteria image the same as I did of the card front on the Basic White panel. I cut the images out using my Wisteria Dies.

I adhered the branch to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the die cut wisteria to the branch using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I cut the detailed branch from the Wisteria Dies from a panel of Soft Succulent cardstock. I cut the larger wisteria die from the Wisteria Dies from a panel of Basic White cardstock that I colored using my Blending Brush and Orchid Oasis Ink. I cut the detailed wisteria die from the Wisteria Dies from a panel of Orchid Oasis cardstock. I adhered the branch to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the wisteria dies together using Glue Dots and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few 2022-2024 In-Color Matte Decorative
Dots
to the card front.

I adhered the 3 panel of 2022-2024 In-Color DSP to Basic White mats using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to the small Z-Fold panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Wisteria Wishes stamp set in Orchid Oasis Ink on a Basic White panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to the inside of the Soft Succulent card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the small Z-Fold panel to the larger card base using Tear & Tape. I adhered the card front to the front of the Soft Succulent card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the stem image from the Wisteria Wishes stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink. I stamped the wisteria image from the Wisteria Wishes stamp set first in Petal Pink Ink, then using my Sponge Dauber I added Sweet Sorbet Ink to the bottom of the flowers and stamped them on the Basic White panel. I cut the images out using my Wisteria Dies. I adhered the flower image to the stems using Glue Dots and then to the back card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added my last Bumblebee Trinket by the flowers using a Glue Dot.

Here is the view from the top.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the stem image from the Wisteria Wishes stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink on the envelope front. I stamped the flower image from the Wisteria Wishes stamp set, colored the same as for the card, on the stems. I adhered a panel of the 2022-2024 In-Color 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. The items used for today’s card will be available May 3rd. I hope you will CASE this card and please feel free to post it in the comments of my Facebook page under my post. I’d love to see your take on the card.

Stampin’ Up! Honeybee Home for The Card Concepts

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. We’re halfway through the week already and on our way to the weekend. I hope everyone is having a wonderful week.

It’s time for another inspiration challenge for The Card Concepts. The inspiration photo is How Does Your Garden Grow. Here is my card that was inspired from the challenge photo.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Honeybee Bundle along with the Stampin’ Up! Dragonfly Garden Cling Stamp Set and Heart & Home Designer Series paper for my Free Style Collage Card. I was inspired by the beautiful flowers and colors from the inspiration photo.

I hope you will take a moment to visit The Card Concepts and join us for our challenge #174.  How are you inspired by this photo?

I started by adhering a panel of Heart & Home DSP to a Basic White Thick card base. I stamped the daisy image from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. Using my Blending Brush, I added Tahitian Tide Ink (available May 3rd) on the Basic White panel around the stamped image. I colored the image using my Daffodil Delight and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the panel using my Stitched Rectangle Dies.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the foxglove flower and bumblebee images from the Stampin’ Up! Honeybee Home Stamp Set 3 times in Tuxedo Black Ink. I cut the images out with the coordinating from the Honeybee Blooms Dies. I colored the images in using my Basic Black, Daffodil Delight, Flirty Flamingo, Melon Mambo and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers. On the panel of Basic White cardstock, using my Blending Brush I added Orchid Oasis Ink (available May 3rd). I cut one of the stand alone dies from the Honeybee Blooms Dies twice from the inked area. I cut the other stand alone die from the Honeybee Blooms Dies from a panel of Orchid Oasis cardstock (available may 3rd) twice. I cut 3 of the grass dies from the Honeybee Blooms Dies from a panel of Old Olive cardstock.

I arranged all the die-cut pieces on the stamped panel of Basic White cardstock. I adhered the flowers and grass die cuts with Stampin’ Dimensionals, Glue Dots and Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I wrapped a piece of the 2022-2024 In-Color Baker’s Twine (available May 3rd) around the panel twice and tied a bow. I adhered the panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Pebbles Enamel Shapes along the bottom of the panel.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the flower and bumblebee images from the Honeybee Home stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the panel and colored them using my Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic Whtie panel to the inside of the Basic White Thick card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the flower image from the Honeybee Home stamp set on the envelope front and colored it using my Melon Mambo and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of Heart & Home 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! Flowering Rain Boots

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend? I worked all weekend but found a little time to get outside for a bit. It was cool and beautiful here in NJ.

I played with one of my favorite sets for today’s card. I’m going to be sorry to see this one go at the end of June. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Flowering Rain Boots Bundle along with the Flowering Fields Designer Series Paper and the new Stampin’ Up! Cup of Tea Photopolymer Stamp Set (available May 3rd) for my card today.

I used the sketch and photo from the Fusion Tulips Challenge for my card today.

I started by cutting the top of a Basic Whtie card front using the small square die from the Tulip Dies. I adhered a strip of the Flowering Fields DSP along the right side of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered another strip of the Flowering Fields DSP on the bottom of the panel using Stampin’ Seal.

On a panel of Basic Whtie cardstock I stamped the watering can image from the Stampin’ Up! Flowering Rain Boots Photopolymer Stamp Set in Gray Granite Ink. I stamped the stem/leaves image in Pear Pizzazz Ink and the tulip head image in Highland Heather and Petal Pink Inks on the Basic White panel. I cut all the images out using my Rain Boots Dies. I cut apart the stem/leaves die cut image using my Paper Snips. I cut apart the tulip head die cuts using my Paper Snips. I adhered the watering can to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the stem/leaves die cuts behind the watering can using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the tulip heads to the stems using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Cup of Tea stamp set in Highland Heather Ink. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I added a few Elegant Faceted Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Flowering Rain Boots stamp set in Highland Heather Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the sentiment form the Stampin’ Up! Flowering Tulips Photopolymer Stamp Set in Highland Heather Ink below the sentiment. I stamped the stem/leaves image from the Flowering Rain Boots stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the tulip heads image from the Flowering Rain Boots stamp set in Highland Heather Ink on the stems. I adhered a couple of the tulip heads that I cut apart on the stems. I adhered a strip of the Flowering Fields DSP to the side of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Petal Pink mat and then to the inside of the Petal Pink card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the stems and flower images from the Flowering Rain Boots on the envelope front in Pear Pizzazz and Petal Pink Inks. I adhered a panel of Flowering Fields 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! Flowering Tulips Fun Fold with Video Tutorial

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and it really is Good Friday. Welcome to my fun fold Friday. How are you all doing today? Are you ready for the weekend? I’m off this weekend, both places are closed on Easter Sunday, and I took off Saturday to prep for my Easter Sunday brunch. I’ll be in my kitchen most of the day today making Easter Egg bread. It’s been a tradition for years in my family, my mom used to make it then I took over. I’m hoping with any luck my daughter will someday take over from me. It’s an all-day thing, mixing, rising, mixing more ingredients in, rising, shaping, rising and finally baking. I believe it takes 5 hours of rising total. In the end it is well worth it. I have an antique cookbook that the recipe is from that I’ve had to modify a little.

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! Flowering Tulips Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Flowering Fields Designer Series Paper and the Stampin’ Up! Celebrating You Cling Stamp Set for my card today.

I played along with Creative Creases Challenge Anything Goes with a Fun Fold.

I also played along with Cardz 4 Galz Challenge #170 Fun Folds.

Here is the template I promised from my video.

I started by scoring a panel of Rich Razzleberry cardstock in half both directions as in the photo above. I cut the top right quarter of the panel off and cut the top right and bottom left quarters on a diagonal.

I cut a panel of Flowering Fields DSP on a diagonal and adhered it to the card base. Be careful if you have a directional pattern, you want to cut it the correct way.

On a panel of Basic Whtie cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Celebrating You stamp set in Rich Razzleberry Ink. I stamped the medium tulip image from the Flowering Tulips stamp set in Fresh Freesia Ink and the stem & leaves in Soft Succulent Ink. I cut the sentiment and image our using the Stylish Shapes Dies (available May 3). I adhered the tulip to the top fold down panel of the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the sentiment to the square die cut using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I tied a small bow using the Fresh Freesia 3/8″ Open Weave Ribbon and adhered it to the stem using a Glue Dot. I added a few 2021-2023 In-Color Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Flowering Tulips stamp set in Rich Razzleberry Ink on a Basic White panel. I adhered a strip of the Flowering Fields DSP to the side of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Fresh Freesia mat and then to the inside of the Rich Razzleberry card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the medium tulip image from the Flowering Tulips stamp set in Fresh Freesia Ink on the envelope front. I stamped the stem and leaves in Soft Succulent Ink. I adhered a panel of the Flowering Fields DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. I hope you will CASE this card and please feel free to post it in the comments of my Facebook page under my 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

You can also view the video on my YouTube channel Here. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Fresh Cut Flowers Sneak Peek 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 amazing 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 Ladies/Girls”.  We can interpret this however we want.  Here’s my card for today.

I used the new Stampin’ Up! Fresh Cut Flowers Cling Stamp Set along with the new Fabulous Frames Dies from the upcoming 2022-2023 Annual Catalog for my card today.

I started by adhering a panel of Mint Macaron Subtle 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Mint Macaron card base. I stamped the large floral image from the Fresh Cut Flowers stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I colored the image in using my Mint Macaron and Pale Papaya Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I cut the image out using the largest frame from the Fabulous Frames Dies. This die cuts out the image and cuts a frame at the same time. I adhered the cut floral image to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the frame to the card front, lining it up with the artwork, using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a few Mint Macaron Genial Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Inspired Thoughts Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the floral image from the Fresh Cut Flowers stamp set on the bottom of the panel in Tuxedo Black Ink and colored it using my Mint Macaron and Pale Papaya Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Mint Macaron mat and then to the inside of the Mint Macaron card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic Whtie Medium Envelope. I stamped the floral image from the Fresh Cut Flowers stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and colored it using my Mint Macaron and Pale Papaya Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of the Subtle DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Dahlia Days with Butterflies & Flowers Masks

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone’s weekend going? It’s been a wet one so far here and unfortunately, we got a bit of water inside this time. I’m done with the rain now, we need a long dry spell to happen. Our backyard is a sponge and when you walk the water splashes up. I worked all day yesterday and I have off today. I wasn’t sure why they gave me off Sunday again. Turns out I got a reminder that I have a team meeting and I must have requested off.

Today’s card I played with some retiring items again. Sometimes I just wish some of the things I like could stay on much longer. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Dahlia Days Cling Stamp Set along with the Butterflies & Flowers Layering Decorative Masks for my card today.

I started by placing the thin lined Butterflies & Flowers Layering Decorative Mask on a Basic White panel and securing it with Post-It tape. I added Fresh Freesia Ink using my Blending Brush. I turned the mask and lining up the thick lined flower on top and added Fresh Freesia Ink using my Blending Brush. I did this twice on the panel moving my mask.

I stamped the leaves and sprig images from the Dahlia Days stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink around the flowers. I embossed the panel using my Tasteful Textures 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered it to a Soft Succulent mat and then to the front of a Baic White Thick card base.

I adhered a length of Fresh Freesia 3/8″ Open Weave Ribbon on the card front. I stamped the sentiment from the Dahlia Days stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I cut the sentiment out using my Seasonal Labels Dies. I adhered the sentiment over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Fresh Freesia Loose Flower Flourishes to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Dahlia Days stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink on a Basic White panel. I adhered the Mask using Post-It tape and added Fresh Freesia Ink using my Blending Brush. I stamped the leaves and sprig images from the Dahlia Days stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink around the flowers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Soft Succulent mat and then to the inside of the Basic White thick card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I colored the flowers the same as I did for the card front on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of 2021-2023 In-Color 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper on the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. The Masks, Stamp Set and Embossing Folder will all be retiring and are only while supplies last. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Cup Of Tea Sneak Peek Video Tutorial for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends welcome to my fun fold Friday. How are you all doing today? Are you ready for the weekend? I’ll be working just Saturday this weekend, they gave me off Sunday, YAY!!! My catalogs should be here today, YAY!! I will get them packed up and shipped out just as soon as I can. Luckily my post office is open until 7pm, so I should be able to get them out today. If you are a customer of mine, be watching your mail in the next week.

Today’s card I made on my Facebook Live video on Wednesday using all new products from the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog. 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 new Stampin’ Up! Cup of Tea Bundle along with the Tea Boutique 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my card today. All the items used are in the new 2022-2023 Annual Catalog and will be available on May 3, 2022.

I started by scoring and folding a panel of Orchis Oasis cardstock as listed below. I adhered 2 panels of the teapot design from the Tea Boutique DSP to Parakeet Party mats and then to the Orchid Oasis card front.

Using my Teacup Dies, I cut the solid teacup from a panel of Orchid Oasis cardstock. I cut the details teacup from a panel of Parakeet Party cardstock. I stamped the teabag tag image from the Stampin’ Up! Cup Of Tea Photopolymer Stamp Set on a panel of Basic White cardstock in Parakeet Party Ink and the sentiment in Orchis Oasis Ink. I cut the tag out using my Teacup Dies. I adhered a small piece of the Orchid Oasis 1/8″ Metallic Woven Ribbon to the back of the teacup and to the tag using a Glue Dot. You can’t see it until the last picture, but I stamped the teabag tag twice and adhered them together so it would have a back and front. I added a 2021-2023 In-Color Jewel to the teabag tag.

I adhered 2 smaller panels of Tea Boutique DSP to the sides of a Parakeet Party card base. I adhered the folded card base to the Parakeet Party card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I adhered 2 panels of the Tea Boutique DSP to Parakeet Party mats and then to the inside side panels of the card base. I stamped the sentiment from the Cup of Tea stamp set in Orchid Oasis Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the teacup image from the Cup of Tea stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom of the panel and colored it using my Orchid Oasis and Parakeet Party Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Parakeet Party mat and then to the inside of the Orchis Oasis card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the teacup image from the Cup of Tea stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I stamped the teabag tag in Parakeet Party Ink and the sentiment on the tag in Orchid Oasis Ink. I colored the teacup in using my Orchid Oasis and Parakeet Party Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of the Tea Boutique 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. Maybe this suite or bundle is on your shopping list? How about the new cardstock colors? I’d be more than happy to help you out with getting them. If you need a catalog, please contact me and I will get one in the mail to you ASAP.

Stampin’ Up! Blessings of Home Mother’s Day

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends. I hope you are all having a wonderful week so far.

Today’s card has very little stamping and is focusing on designer series paper. We will be making this card tonight at my Stamp Camp card class and just like yesterday’s, everyone will be making the same card, but just a little different. I’ve cut all different DSP and cardstock colors for each of the ladies. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Blessings of Home Cling Stamp Set along with the Stampin’ Up! Happy & Heartfelt Cling Stamp Set and the Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by embossing a Basic White card front using the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder.

I adhered 3 panels of Hand Penned DSP to 3 Highland Heather mats. I adhered the 2 larger layered panels to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and the smaller panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I wrapped a piece of White Bakers Twine from the Bakers Twine Essential Pack around the card front twice and tied a bow.

On a panel of Highland Heather cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Blessings of Home stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I sponged the edges of the panel with Highland Heather Ink using my Sponge Dauber. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the card front to a Highland Heather card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Bumblebee Trinkets to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Happy & Heartfelt stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I adhered a strip of the Hand Penned DSP to the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Highland Heather mat and then to the inside of the Highland Heather card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of the Hand Penned DSP to the envelope front and a panel 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! Celebrating You Mother’s Day

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend? I hope you were able to do something fun.

Today’s card is one that we are going to make at my Stamp Camp card class tomorrow night. I thought I’d focus on using some designer series paper with the ladies. I know I always used to struggle with how and when to use it. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Celebrating you Cling Stamp Set along with the Expressions in Ink Designer Series Paper for my card today. Tomorrow night the ladies are all going to be making this card, but they will all have different designs of the DSP and different color card stock for their cards. I can’t wait to see how different they all come out.

I started by embossing a Basic White card front using the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the card front to a Polished Pink mat and then to a Thick Basic White card base.

I cut 4 panels of the Expressions in Ink DSP using my Stitched Rectangle Dies. I adhered the 4 cut panels of DSP to 4 Polished Pink mats and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Celebrating You stamp set in Polished Pink Ink. I cut the sentiment out using the same side Stitched Rectangle Die and adhered it to a Polished Pink mat. I adhered the layered sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Polished Pink 2021-2023 In-Color Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Celebrating You stamp set in Polished Pink Ink on a Basic White panel. I adhered a strip of the Expressions in Ink DSP to the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Polished Pink mat and then to the inside of the Thick Basic White card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of the Expressions in Ink DSP on the envelope front and a panel 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! Pansy Patch Hello

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends and welcome to the weekend. Does anyone have plans? Yesterday we had a gorgeous spring day. It was 60 out and my daughter and I were running errands without coats on. Today, well a little different. It’s cold with a mix of rain and snow. I really wish spring would get here and stay.

Today’s card is one that we made at our team meeting on Tuesday night. Every month we have a virtual team meeting and so Mystery Stamping at the end. It’s a lot of fun. Our upline emails us measurements and then at the end of the meeting she tells us how to put the card together. All of our cards are similar but different. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Pansy Patch Bundle along with the Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper for my card today.

My colors are from Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge #384.

I started by adhering a panel of Pansy Petals DSP to a Basic White card front. I wrapped a piece of the Fresh Freesia 3/8″ Open Weave Ribbon around the side of the panel and tied a bow.

On the bottom of the panel, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Pansy Patch Photopolymer Stamp Set in Mint Macaron Ink. I cut a panel of Fresh Freesia cardstock into a banner using my Paper Snips and embossed it using the Checks & Dots Embossing Folder. I adhered the banner to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Using my Pansy Dies, I cut the flower and the flower bud from a panel of So Saffron cardstock. I cut the detailed flower outline from a panel of Fresh Freesia cardstock. I cut the stem, 2 leaves and detailed leaves from a panel of Mint Macaron cardstock. I sponged some Mint Macaron Ink on the detailed leave die using my Sponge Dauber. I adhered the detailed flower dies to the solid flower pieces using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the flower pieces together using Glue Dots. I adhered the leaves behind the flower using Glue Dots. I adhered the flower to the banner panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a Pearl Basic Jewel that I colored with my So Saffron Stampin’ Blend Marker in the center of the flower. I added a couple Bumblebee Trinkets to the card front using Glue Dots. I adhered the card front to a Basic Whtie card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Pansy Patch stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the smallest pansy image from the Pansy Patch stamp set in So Saffron Ink on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the pansy outline and center images from the Pansy Patch stamp set in Fresh Freesia Ink over the solid image. I stamped the leaf images from the Pansy Patch stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink on the pansy. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Fresh Freesia mat and then to the inside of the Basic White card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of the Pansy Petals DSP to the envelope front and a panel 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!!
