Stampin’ Up! Happy Labels Patchwork

Good Tuesday morning stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend and Memorial Day? It was a gorgeous weekend and Memorial Day here. We couldn’t have asked for better weather. Perfect day to be outside for a picnic and for the bike races, although it was a bit breezy.

Those that know me know that I like layers on my cards. I have a lot of trouble doing simple 1 layer cards. Today’s card is no different, there’s a lot of layers. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Happy Labels Patchwork1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Happy Labels Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Stampin’ Up! Petal Park Photopolymer Stamp Set, Countryside Inn Designer Series Paper, Stylish Shapes Dies and Basics 3 D Embossing Folder for my card today.

Stampin' Up! Happy Labels Patchwork2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by stamping the sentiment from the Happy Labels stamp set in Boho Blue Ink on the bottom of a panel of Basic White. I embossed the panel using the Basics 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the embossed panel to a Night of Navy mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Happy Labels Patchwork3 creativestampingdesigns.com

Using the Stylish Shapes Dies, I cut 9 of the smallest squares from panels of Countryside Inn DSP. I adhered the die cut squares to a panel of Basic White using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the patchwork panel to a Night of Navy mat using Stampin’ Seal.

Stampin' Up! Happy Labels Patchwork4 creativestampingdesigns.com

I adhered the layered panel to a Boho Blue mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the matted panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the layered card front to a Boho Blue card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I added a few 2023-2025 In-Color Dots to the card front.

Stampin' Up! Happy Labels Patchwork5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Happy Labels stamp set in Boho Blue Ink on a panel of Basic White. I stamped the small flower image from the Petal Park stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on either side of the sentiment. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Night of Navy mat then to the inside of the Boho Blue card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the small flower image from the Petal Park stamp set in Boho Blue Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of Countryside Inn DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Sending Smiles Daisy Hello

Good Monday morning my stamping friends and Happy Memorial Day. I hope you can enjoy your day with family and friends getting together for a picnic or some fun activities. Please take a moment to remember all those who have served for us. We’ll be having a small picnic today with some friends and family. We’ll be celebrating my daughter and puppy’s birthday. My husband and a few of his friends will be walking into town to watch some of the Tour de Somerville bike races. This is a big thing here on Memorial Day in my town, hundreds of people come from all over the world to race in this. They start closing the streets in town at 3am to get set up. For 13 years I walked with my girl scouts in the parade at 8am that kicked everything off. They now start all the races at 8am starting with the family fun races. The big pro womans race starts at 2:15, having to ride 25 miles, and the pro men’s race starts at 3:45, having to ride 50 miles. It’s very exciting watching hundreds of riders starting the races and then how many are left at the end. From what I’ve heard there is a waiting list of contenders to get in on this. They have the award ceremony around 6pm that wraps everything up, with winners from both the pro womans and pro men’s races.

Today’s card is a sketch challenge from my Upline Jaimie. She’s been giving us a sketch a week to work with. I’m really liking this quick and easy one. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Sending Smiles Panel 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Sending Smiles Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Fresh As A Daisy Designer Series Paper and Designer Tags Dies for my card today.

This is our sketch for this week.

Stampin' Up! Sending Smiles Panel 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by adhering a panel of Fresh As A Daisy DSP to a Lemon Lolly mat using Stampin’ Seal. I stamped the sentiment from Sending Smiles stamp set in Versamark Ink on the bottom of the panel. I sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder and set it using the Heat Tool.

Stampin' Up! Sending Smiles Panel 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

I adhered 3 panels of Fresh As A Daisy DSP to 3 Lemon Lolly mats using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the 3 layered panels to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I wrapped a piece of Lemon Lolly 3/8″ Sheer Ribbon from the Sheer Ribbon Combo Pack around the layered panel and tied a bow.

Stampin' Up! Sending Smiles Panel 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

I adhered the layered panel to a Pebbled Path card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. Using the Designer Tags Dies, I cut a butterfly from a panel of Lemon Lolly cardstock. I adhered the butterfly to the card front using Glue Dots. I added a couple 2023-2025 In-Color Dots to the butterfly. I added a few Adhesive-Backed Solid Gems to the card front.

Stampin' Up! Sending Smiles Panel 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside, I stamped the sentiments from the Sending Smiles stamp set in Pebbled Path Ink on a panel of Basic White. I stamped the larger stem from the Sending Smiles stamp set in Garden Green Ink on the side of the panel. I stamped the daisy image from the Sending Smiles stamp set in Lemon Lolly Ink on the stem. I stamped the flower center in Wild Wheat Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Lemon Lolly mat then to the inside of the Pebbled Path card base.

Stampin' Up! Sending Smiles Panel 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the stem image from the Sending Smiles stamp set in Garden Green Ink on the envelop front. I stamped the daisy on the stem in Lemon Lolly Ink and the flower center in Wild Wheat Ink. I adhered a panel of Fresh As A Daisy DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Inked & Tiled for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends welcome to my fun fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? I hope you are ready for a long weekend. I’ll be at work, but I do have off on Monday and we’re planning on having a picnic/birthday all day. Today is my daughter’s birthday and every year we celebrate on Memorial Day. This year she has to share her celebration with Coraline, my puppy. Coraline turned 1 today.

Today’s card I made on my Facebook Live video on Wednesday. I was a little bit of a hot mess, but I made it through. It just wasn’t my day for a live starting with having technical difficulties. 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 is my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Inked & Tiled Fun Fold 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Inked & Tiled Cling Stamp Set along with the Inked Botanicals 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper and Nested Essentials Dies for my card today.

Stampin' Up! Inked & Tiled Fun Fold 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by cutting the 3″ X 5 1/4″ panel of Petal Pink cardstock using the largest Nested Essentials Dies. I folded the panel on the 1″ score line, placed the die above the fold line so that it wouldn’t cut the fold and ran it through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine. I adhered the die cut panel to the back of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, so that it would fold over the Z-Fold.

On a panel of Basic White, I stamped the leaf image from the Inked & Tiled stamp set in Lost Lagoon Ink 3 time, stamping off twice on scrap paper before stamping on the panel each time. I stamped the flower image from the Inked & Tiled stamp set over the leaf images. I inked the flower image using Lost Lagoon Stampin’ Write Marker for the stem and leaves, Petal Pink Stampin’ Write Marker for the flowers and I used Calypso Coral Stampin’ Write Markers for highlights on the flowers. I gave it a couple huffs to reactivate the ink before stamping. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Calypso Coral mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to the Petal Pink card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I tied a small bow with the1/4″ Petal Pink Ribbon from the Ribbon Duo Combo Pack and adhered it to the stem using a Glue Dot. I added a couple Rhinestone Basic Jewels on the top of the panel.

I used Lost Lagoon Stampin’ Write Markers for the stems and Calypso Coral & Petal Pink Stampin’ Write Markers for the flowers.

Stampin’ Up! Circle Sayings for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. If you are starting with me, thank you. I hope you will stop by everyone’s blog to see what they have created this week. If you are hopping over from Akiko’s blog, thank you for stopping by. This week we have Sketch Challenge. Here is my card using this week’s sketch.

Stampin' Up! Circle Sayings Smile 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Circle Sayings Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Stampin’ Up! Irresistible Blooms Cling Stamp Set, Hello Irresistible 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper and the 2″ Circle Punch for my card today.

This is our sketch for this week.

Stampin' Up! Circle Sayings Smile 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by adhering a panel of Hello Irresistible DSP to a Lost Lagoon mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to a Soft Sea Foam card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Circle Sayings Smile 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

I adhered a smaller panel of the Hello Irresistible DSP to a Lost Lagoon mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Circle Sayings Smile 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White, I stamped the banner sentiment from the Circle Sayings stamp set in Lost Lagoon Ink. I wanted the sentiment to fit the smaller punch, so I bent it a little to fit before stamping. I stamped the flower image from the Irresistible Blooms stamp set in Flirty Flamingo Ink, stamping off on scrap paper, under the sentiment. I stamped the smile sentiment from the Circle Sayings stamp set over the flower in Lost Lagoon Ink. I punched the sentiment out using the 2″ Circle Punch. I adhered 2 pieces of Lost Lagoon 1/4″ Bordered Ribbon to the card front using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the circle sentiment over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Loose Frosted Dots using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Circle Sayings Smile 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Circle Sayings stamp set in Lost Lagoon Ink on a panel of Basic White. I stamped the sun burst image from the Circle Sayings stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink above the sentiment. I stamped the flower image from the Irresistible Blooms stamp set in Flirty Flamingo Ink on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the leaf images from the Irresistible Blooms stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink around the flower. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Lost lagoon mat then to the inside of the Soft Sea Foam card base.

Stampin' Up! Circle Sayings Smile 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the large flower image from the Irresistible Blooms stamp set in Flirty Flamingo Ink on the envelope front. I stamped the leaf images from the Irresistible Blooms stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink around the flower. I adhered a panel of Hello Irresistible DSP to the envelolpe flap.

Stampin’ Up! Cheerful Daisies CAS

Good Monday morning my stamping friends welcome to a new week. What did everyone do this weekend? I can’t believe it’s nearing the end of May already. The end of this week my puppy Coraline will be 1. I have something special for her on Friday, but we will be celebrating her birthday on Memorial Day with my daughter’s birthday.

I have a CAS card for you today. My upline Jaimie has been giving us sketch challenges each week to do. I went a little out of order so I did #2 this week and I believe I did #3 last week. This is my take on the sketch, I turned it for a different look.

Stampin' Up! Cheerful Daisies CAS 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Cheerful Daisies Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Fresh As A Daisy Designer Series Paper for my card today.

This was our week 2 sketch.

Stampin' Up! Cheerful Daisies CAS 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by adhering a panel of Fresh As A Daisy DSP to a Copper Clay mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered a strip of the Fresh As A Daisy DSP to the left side of the layered panel. I adhered the layered panel to the Boho Blue card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Cheerful Daisies CAS 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a strip of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Cheerful Daisies stamp set in Copper Clay Ink.

Stampin' Up! Cheerful Daisies CAS 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

I folded a strip of Vellum Basics Paper into a banner and cut the ends using my Paper Snips. I adhered the vellum banner to the card front using Glue Dots. I adhered the sentiment over the banner using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Cheerful Daisies CAS 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Cheerful Daisies stamp set in Copper Clay Ink on a panel of Basic White. I stamped the stem, leaf and medium daisy image from the Cheerful Daisies stamp set in Versamark Ink next to the sentiment. It is very hard to see in the photo. I sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder and set it using the Heat Tool. I stamped the daisy center in Copper Clay Ink on the embossed daisy. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Copper Clay mat then to the inside of the Boho Blue card base.

Stampin' Up! Cheerful Daisies CAS 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the small cluster of daisies from the Cheerful Daisies stamp set in Versamark Ink on the envelope front. I sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder and set it using the Heat Tool. I adhered a panel of Fresh As A Daisy DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Crafting With You Thanks

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. Hope you are all enjoying your weekend. It’s supposed to be sunny and warm here today, a bit of a change from yesterday’s rain all day. We went to the fund raiser last night and for the 1st time in quite a few years, my daughter and I came home with 3 baskets we won. My nephew won 1 and my niece won 2. It was a good night for all or us.

I have a quick card for you today with one of the new sets from the annual catalog which happens to be one of my favorites. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! crafting With You Thanks 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Crafting With You Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Stampin’ Up! Vertical Blooms Photopolymer Stamp Set and Delightfully Eclectic Designer Series Paper for my card today.

My design is from Freshly Made Sketches #586.

My colors are from the Color Throwdown Challenge #743.

Stampin' Up! crafting With You Thanks 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by adhering a panel of the Delightfully Eclectic DSP to a Bubble Bath card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! crafting With You Thanks 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the easel image from the Crafting With You stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink to the right of the panel. I stamped the flower image from the Crafting With You stamp set on the easel. I inked the flower image with Bubble Bath Ink, then colored the leaves using the Parakeet Party Stampin’ Write Marker. I adhered the Basic Whtie panel the left side of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! crafting With You Thanks 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

I stamped the sentiment from the Vertical Blooms stamp set in Versamark Ink on a panel of Parakeet Party cardstock. I sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder and set it using the Heat Tool. I adhered the sentiment to the left side of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I added a few Iridescent Pearls Basic Jewels to the flower centers.

Stampin' Up! crafting With You Thanks 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Crafting With You stamp set in Parakeet Party Ink on a panel of Basic White. I stamped the flower image from the Crafting With You stamp set on the top of the panel, I inked the stamp using Bubble Bath Ink, then I colored the leaves using the Parakeet Party Stampin’ Write Marker. I adhered a strip of the Delightfully Eclectic DSP to the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Parakeet Party mat then to the inside of the Bubble Bath card base.

But – if you DO NOT use the Host code for your orders of less than $150 (this is the RETAIL total before Shipping & Handling), then you’ll have two options:

  1. You’ll need to call Stampin’ Up! (1-800-Stamp-Up) and ask them to add it for you. They’re very helpful and will get it done quickly!  OR….
  2. If your order was over the $50 threshold but under $150, then…you’ll forfeit that $10 ordering gift and rewards – this is the Bummer Option – and I REALLY don’t want to do this, SO please remember to add my Current Host Code.

Stampin’ Up! Earthen Textures Thank You

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends and welcome to the weekend. What kind of plans to you have in the works for the weekend? I’ll be working all day today and for the first time in a couple weeks it’s supposed to rain. We do need the rain; things are starting to dry up here. Tonight I’ll be going to the high school tricky tray to support the music department. Maybe I’ll get lucky this year and win something. I usually just donate and don’t come home with anything.

I played with a new bundle, DSP and 2023-2025 In-Colors for today’s card. This was one of those sets that I was on the fence about. Once I started playing with it I realized that I’m really loving it. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Earthen Textures Thank You 1 creativestampungdesigns.com

I used the new Stampin’ Up! Earthen Textures Bundle along with the Earthen Elegance Designer Series Paper for my card today.

Stampin' Up! Earthen Textures Thank You 2 creativestampungdesigns.com

I started by adhering a panel of Earthen Elegance DSP to a Pretty Peacock card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered 2 other panels of Earthen Elegance DSP to Pretty Peacock mats using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the 2 layered panels to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Earthen Textures Thank You 3 creativestampungdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the vase image from the Stampin’ Up! Earthen Textures Cling Stamp Set in Pecan Pie Ink. I stamped the feather image from the Earthen Textures stamp set in Moody Mauve Ink on the same panel. I cut the images out using the Earthen Textures Dies. Using the Earthen Textures Dies again, I cut the fern from a panel of Pretty Peacock and the grass die from a panel of Misty Moonlight. I adhered the die cut feather, fern and grass pieces to the card front using Glue Dots. I adhered the vase over the stems using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Earthen Textures Thank You 4 creativestampungdesigns.com

On a strip of Basic White, I stamped the sentiment from the Earthen Textures stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink. I stamped the feather image from the Earthen Textures stamp set in Moody Mauve Ink, stamping off twice on scrap paper, over the sentiment. I adhered the sentiment to a Pretty Peacock mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few 2023-2025 In-Color Dots to the card front.

Stampin' Up! Earthen Textures Thank You 5 creativestampungdesigns.com

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Earthen Textures stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink on a panel of Basic White. I stamped the feather image from the Earthen Textures stamp set in Moody Mauve on the bottom of the panel 3 times one after another without reinking the stamp. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Moody Mauve mat then to the inside of the Pretty Peacock card base.

Stampin' Up! Earthen Textures Thank You 6 creativestampungdesigns.com

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the vase image from the Earthen Textures stamp set on the envelope front in Pecan Pie Ink. I stamped the feather image in Moody Mauve Ink. I adhered a panel of Earthen Elegance DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Balloons for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. If you are starting with me, thank you. I hope you will stop by everyone’s blog to see what they have created this week. If you are hopping over from Akiko’s blog, thank you for stopping by. This week we have Theme Challenge which worked out perfectly for me since I needed a graduation card. Here is my card using this week’s theme.

Stampin' Up! Beautiful Balloons Graduation 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Balloons Bundle along with the Stampin’ Up! Charming Sentiments Photopolymer Stamp Set and Bright & Beautiful 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my card today.

Here is out theme for this week.

Stampin' Up! Beautiful Balloons Graduation 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by adhering 2 panels of Bright & Beautiful DSP to 2 Berry Burst mats. On 2 other panels of Berry Burst I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Balloons Photopolymer Stamp Set in Versamark Ink. I sprinkled the sentiments with White Embossing Powder and set them using my Heat Tool. I stamped the streamer image from the Beautiful Balloons stamp set in Berry Burst Ink on the longer sentiment panel.

Stampin' Up! Beautiful Balloons Graduation 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

I adhered the 2 DSP layered panels and the rectangle sentiment panel to a Lemon Lolly mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the square sentiment using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the layered panel to a Lemon Lime Twist card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Beautiful Balloons Graduation 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

Using the Beautiful Balloons Dies, I cut the streamer from a panel of Lemon Lime Twist cardstock. I adhered the streamer to the square sentiment as a tassel for a cap. I adhered an Iridescent Pearl Basic Jewel to the tassel. I tied a small bow using the 1/8″ Lemon Lime Twist Ribbon from the Ribbon Duo Combo Pack and adhered it to the card front. I added a few Adhesive-Backed Sequins Trios to the card front.

Stampin' Up! Beautiful Balloons Graduation 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Charming Sentiments stamp set in Berry Burst Ink on a panel of Basic White. I used the Beautiful Balloons Dies to cut out the stars and confetti along each side of the sentiment. I stamped the streamer image from the Beautiful Balloons stamp set in Lemon Lime Twist Ink on either side of the sentiment. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Lemon Lolly mat then to the inside of the Lemon Lime Twist card base.

Stampin' Up! Beautiful Balloons Graduation 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the streamer image from the Beautiful Balloons stamp set in Berry Burst, Lemon Lime Twist and Lemon Lolly Ink along the bottom front of the envelope. I stamped the sentiment from the Beautiful Balloons stamp set in Berry Burst Ink. I adhered a panel of the Bright & Beautiful DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Cheerful Daisies in Purples

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. We’re halfway through the week already. Time is just flying by. Yesterday they came to start the process of refinishing 2 of my bedroom floors. It was VERY loud. My poor Coraline was traumatized with all the noise. I’ve never seen her in hiding ALL DAY like that. At one point I was able to get her out from under my chair and I picked her up. She was shaking and trembling so bad I wanted to cry. Once I was able to pry her out of my arms, I took her outside for a walk. When we got home, I couldn’t get her back into the house she was so scared. I did finally get her in and she went back into hiding. Once my husband got home her was able to get her outside again, but she wouldn’t play, she just went to hide under a bush. I ran to the store and when I got home an hour later, he was still outside with her, he couldn’t get her in. Once we did, she was at my feet all night. I’m hoping today will be a little better when the guys get here. At least there won’t be much noise.

Today’s card I played with a sketch my upline gave us. Jaimie is giving us a sketch each week to play with. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Cheerful Daisies in Purple 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Cheerful Daisies Bundle, the Stampin’ Up! Happy Labels Photopolymer Stamp Set, Glorious Gingham 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper along with Exposed Brick 3D Embossing Folder, Deckled Rectangle Dies and Banner Pick A Punch for my card today.

This is our sketch for this week.

I played along with the Hand Stamped Sentiments Inspiration Challenge #414. I was inspired by the purple African Daisies in the photo.

Stampin' Up! Cheerful Daisies in Purple 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by adhering a panel of Glorious Gingham DSP to a Lemon Lime Twist card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I cut a panel of Basic White using the 3rd largest Deckled Rectangle Dies. I randomly stamped the leaf image from the Stampin’ Up! Cheerful Daisies Photopolymer Stamp Set in Lemon Lime Twist Ink on the side of the panel. I embossed the panel using the Exposed Brich 3D Embossing Folder.

Stampin' Up! Cheerful Daisies in Purple 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the medium outline daisy image from the Cheerful Daisies stamp set in Blackberry Bliss, Fresh Freesia, Gorgeous Grape, Highland Heather and Moody Mauve Inks. I stamped the medium solid daisy image from the Cheerful Daisies stamp set in the same colors, stamping off once on scrap paper. I cut all the daisies out using the Cheerful Daisies Dies. I arranged the daisies on the side of the panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the panel to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Cheerful Daisies in Purple 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a strip of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Cheerful Daisies stamp set in Lemon Lime Twist Ink. I cut the ends of the strip using the Banner Pick A Punch. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added Daffodil Delight Glossy Dots Assortment to the flower centers.

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Happy Labels stamp set in Lemon Lime Twist on a panel of Basic White. I stamped the stem and leaf images from the Cheerful Daisies stamp set in Lemon Lime Twist Ink on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the daisy image from the Cheerful Daisies stamp set in Highland Heather Ink on the stem. I stamped the daisy center in Daffodil Delight Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Highland Heather mat then to the inside of the Lemon Lime Twist card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the stem and leaves from the Cheerful Daisies stamp set in Lemon Lime Twist Ink on the envelope front. I stamped the medium daisy images from the Cheerful Daisies stamp set in Fresh Freesia and Highland Heather Ink on the stems. I stamped the daisy centers in Daffodil Delight Ink. I adhered a panel of Glorious Gingham DSP to the envelope flap.

Use this host code when placing an order with me. When you order $50 or greater you will receive a free gift from me! If your order is over $150, please do not use this code, but you’ll still get the free gift. The free gift is your choice of any 1 item valued up to $10.00 from the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog or the January-April 2023 Mini Catalog!  Unfortunately, packs of cardstock are no longer an option for a free gift. Shipping has become too expensive to ship and it’s costing me as much to ship as the cardstock costs. For any orders $50 or more I will also send you my monthly class tutorials.  Click HERE or go to my Customer Rewards for more details and to see what this month’s tutorials are.

In response to changing policies at Stampin’ Up – I’m adjusting my Ordering Gift policy as well.  I’m having to get a little more tough on the adding of Host codes when you place your order thru my Online Store.

Not to worry – you’re still going to get that $10 ordering gift for orders of $50 (before shipping & tax) or greater.  And the gift is still any 1 SU! product up to that $10 value – which includes some of our fun Host Sets!

But – if you DO NOT use the Host code for your orders of less than $150 (this is the RETAIL total before Shipping & Handling), then you’ll have two options:

  1. You’ll need to call Stampin’ Up! (1-800-Stamp-Up) and ask them to add it for you. They’re very helpful and will get it done quickly!  OR….
  2. If your order was over the $50 threshold but under $150, then…you’ll forfeit that $10 ordering gift and rewards – this is the Bummer Option – and I REALLY don’t want to do this, SO please remember to add my Current Host Code.
