Stampin’ Up Strong and Beautiful

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers.  The weekend is upon us.  Has anyone made any plans?  I’m hoping to get some craft time in after work tonight and tomorrow, but we’ll see what happens.

For today’s card I have a super quick and easy one for you.  My house is a bit under construction so I had to whip something up quick when I was done packing things up.  Here’s my card.

I started with a card front of the, FREE from Sale-A-Bration with a $50 order, Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Strong & Beautiful Stamp Set in the soon to be retired, Tranquil Tide Ink.   I adhered the DSP to a Tranquil Tide mat using Snail.

Using my Big Shot, I ran the matted card front through using the .Subtle Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  Since the card was so simple I wanted it to have a little texture.  I then adhered the embossed card front to a Blushing Bride card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I added a few Tranquil Tide Share What You Love Artisan Pearls to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Strong & Beautiful stamp set in Tranquil Tide Ink on a Whisper White panel.  I adhered a strip of the Petal Promenade DSP to the bottom of the panel using Snail.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Tranquil Tide mat using Snail then to the inside of the Blushing Bride card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I adhered Petal Promenade DSP to the envelope front and  the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. This has to be one of the quickest cards I’ve ever made.  I let the Designer Series Paper do most of the work for me.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up Tea Together Mother’s Day Card

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was your weekend?  Did everyone remember to change your clocks?   Spring is right around the corner, but not soon enough for me.  Daylight savings time is my favorite time of the year.  It stays light out later and I just have more energy.

Today’s card was CASE’d from a wonderful team member and friend Mary Deatherage.  You can see her card HERE.  She made her beautiful card on one of her Sunday night Facebook live videos.  Her videos are great, you should stop by to see her on a Sunday night.  Here is my card.

My card fit in with the Colour and Sketch colour challenge #311.  Be sure to stop by and play along with their challenge.  Here is their beautiful combination of colors.

I started with a Blackberry Bliss card front and ran it through my Big Shot using the Country Floral Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (FREE Sale-A-Bration item with a $50 order).  I then took my Whisper White Craft Stamp Pad and swiped it across the raised design and let it dry.  I adhered it on to a Highland Heather mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped the tea pot , flower and leaf images from the Stampin’ Up Tea Together Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink on a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock.  Using my Big Shot, I cut the images out with the Tea Time Framelits Dies (FREE Sale-A-Bration item with a $100 order).  I colored the flower, leaves and top of the tea pot in with my Highland Heather and Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I adhered the flower to the front of the tea pot using Stampin’ Dimensionals and the leaves under the flower using Glue Dots.  I took one of the Pearlized Doilies (2 – FREE Sale-A-Bration item with a $50 order) and colored it in using my Dark Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Marker.  I adhered the doily to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and adhered the tea pot on top of it using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Pearl Basic Jewels to the card front and added some Wink Of Stella to the flower on the tea pot.  I adhered the card front to a Thick Very Vanilla card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the tea cup from the Tea Together stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on a Very Vanilla panel and stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set inside the tea cup in Blackberry Bliss Ink.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Highland Heather mat using Snail and adhered it inside the Thick Very Vanilla card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I stamped the tea cup from the Tea Together stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the envelope front and stamped the sentiment from the same set inside the cup in Blackberry Bliss Ink.  I stamped the flower from the same stamp set on the envelope flap and colored it in the same as 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. As you can see, I used quite a few FREE Sale-A-Bration items for my card today.  There’s only  20 days left for Sal-A-Bration.  Don’t wait if there are items you’d like to get for free.  Head over to my online store now to see all the great items that are available. Happy Stamping!!
