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 Hold On To Hope

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers.  How is your week going?   Today’s our first full day of spring.  I’ve got a lot of crocus and daffodils blooming at my house, so that’s a sure sign of warmer weather coming.

For today’s card I made another quick and easy card for you using the Painted Seasons Bundle which is a FREE Sale-A-Bration item with a $100 order.  Only 10 days left to get your Sale-A-Bration items!!   Here’s my card.

I started with a Whisper White card front and adhered it to a Petal Pink mat and then to a Poppy Parade mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I wrapped a piece of the beautiful Petal Pink/Whisper White 5/8″ Variegated Ribbon around it and tied a knot.  I adhered the matted card front to a Thick Whisper White card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I took a piece of the gorgeous Painted Seasons Designer Series Paper and adhered it to a Petal Pink mat and then to a Poppy Parade mat using Snail.  I adhered the matted DSP to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the ‘God Is Love’ sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Hold On To Hope Stamp Set in Poppy Parade Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using my Big Shot and the Cross Of Hope Framelits Dies.  I adhered the sentiment to the center of the DSP using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the flower image from the Stampin’ Up Painted Seasons Stamp Set in Petal Pink Ink on the corners of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the leaf image from the same stamp set in Call Me Clover Ink by the flowers and I stamped the center of the flowers in Early Espresso Ink.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up You’re Inspiring Stamp Set in Poppy Parade Ink in the center of the Whisper White panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel 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 flower image from the Painted Seasons stamp set in Petal Pink Ink on the envelope front.  I adhered a piece of Painted Seasons DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try.  We made this card at my last workshop and everyone was able to put it together really quick.

Don’t forget Sale-A-Bration is only here for another 10 days.  So don’t wait any longer if there is something you’ve had your eye on.  Get it while it’s still available because after the 31st Sale-A-Bration items will be gone for good.  

Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up Meant To Be

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  Happy 1st Day Of Spring!!!

There are less than 2 weeks left for Sale-A-Bration, yikes!  If there are still items you wanted to get, don’t wait.  Things are selling out.  They’ve added a 3rd release, you can see it below.

For today’s card I have a real quick and easy card for you.  Take a look.

I started by cutting the rectangles.  I used the 3 middle Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies along with my Big Shot and cut the largest in Lovely Lipstick cardstock, the middle one in Flirty Flamingo cardstock and the smallest one in All My Love Designer Series Paper.  Once I cut them out I layered them inside one another.

As you can see, this is a very flat card since they are inside and not layered on top of one another.  I adhered the rectangles to a Whisper White card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I just love how the stitching looks on all the rectangles.

On a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Meant To Be Stamp Set in Versamark Ink and immediately sprinkled it with my Lovely Lipstick Embossing Powder.  I heat set it using my Heat Tool then cut the circle out using my Big Shot and the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.  I also cut a scalloped circle from the Layering Circles Framelits Dies and adhered the stitched circle to it using Snail.  I adhered the circle to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and adhered a small Flirty Flamingo bow made from the All My Love Ribbon Combo Pack.  I adhered the card front to a Thick Whisper White card base.

On the inside I stamped the single flower from Stampin’ Up Forever Lovely Stamp Set in Flirty Flamingo Ink.  I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set in Lovely Lipstick Ink in the center.  I adhered the Whisper White panel 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 flower from the Forever Lovely stamp set on the envelope front.  I adhered a piece of All My Love DSP to the envelope flap.

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

Stampin’ Up Flowering Desert for SUO Challenge

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  How is your week going?  We’re half way through already.  Did you have a chance to hop around our Blog Hop yesterday?  If not, try to take the time to go back and see all the beautiful projects.

For today’s card I used the Stampin’ Up Flowering Desert Stamp Set.  I’ve done the Masking and Sponging Techniques on it.  I love doing both techniques.  Here’s my card.

My card was able to join in with the Stampin’ Up Only Challenge color challenge #218.  Be sure to stop by to play along and see what everyone else has made.  Here is their challenge. We are doing a fun spring color palette challenge of Granny Apple Green, Lovely Lipstick, and Pool Party, with a bonus color of Mango Melody. All neutrals are allowed.

I started with a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the cactus from the Flowering Desert stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink in the center.  I covered the image with a mask I had made from a Post-It note and fussy cut.

I stamped the mountain image from the Stampin’ Up Waterfront Stamp Set behind the cactus in Basic Gray Ink.  I then began my sponging.  I started with the bottom and sponged Crumb Cake Ink using my Stamping Sponges, up to the mountains.  I stamped the sand image from the Waterfront stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink over the sponged area.

I next sponged Pool Party Ink above the mountains followed by Mango Melody Ink, Lovely Lipstick Ink and along the top I added some Smoky Slate Ink.  As I sponged up I blended the colors together.  I stamped the flowers on the cactus in Lovely Lipstick Ink and the aloe plants in the sand in Granny Apple Green Ink.  Using my Big Shot,  I cut the artwork out using the 2nd largest Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies.  I cut a Pool Party frame out using the largest and 2nd largest Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies.  I adhered the artwork and frame to a Mango Melody card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  On a small strip of Pool Party cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Flowering Desert stamp set in Versamark Ink.  I immediately sprinkled it with my Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat set it with my Heat Tool.  I made it into a banner and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside on a Whisper White panel I stamped the cactus from the Flowering Desert stamp set in the center using Granny Apple Green Ink stamping off twice.  I stamped the flowers from the same stamp set in Lovely Lipstick Ink stamping off 3 times and the aloe plants in Granny Apple Green Ink some stamping off once and some full strength ink.  I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set in Lovely Lipstick Ink over the cactus.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Lovely Lipstick mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Mango Melody card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the front and back of the envelope with the images from the Flowering Desert stamp set.

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

Stampin’ Up You’re Inspiring for The Paper Players

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers.  How has your week been?

For today’s card I’ve made an Easter card using the Stampin’ Up You’re Inspiring Stamp Set.  With spring less then 2 weeks away I’m just waiting for the daffodils to start blooming.  Here is my card.

I’ve played along with The Paper Players Theme Challenge #431.  Be sure to stop by to play along and see the beautiful projects everyone has made.  Here is their challenge.

I started with a Mint Macaron card base and cut 3 1/4″ off the top of the front leaving 2 1/4″.  On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the small daffodil image from the You’re Inspiring stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink a couple times to fill the panel.  I colored the image in using my Daffodil Delight and Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the tiny background image from the same stamp set in Pool Party Ink above the daffodils.  I adhered the artwork to a Daffodil Delight mat using Snail then to the bottom of the front card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a larger panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the larger daffodil image from the You’re Inspiring stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink so that it would be coming up from behind the small card front panel.  I colored the image in using my Daffodil Delight and Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I adhered the larger Whisper White panel to a Daffodil Delight mat using Snail then to the inside of the Mint Macaron card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I added a butterfly from the Stampin’ Up Butterfly Gala Stamp Set that I had stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and Daffodil Delight Ink.  I punched the butterfly out using the Butterfly Duet Punch and adhered it by the daffodils using a Glue Dot.  I added a couple Pearl Basic Jewels that I had colored using my Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blend Marker.

On the inside I added the sentiment from the You’re Inspiring stamp set.  I stamped the Happy Easter in Mint Macaron Ink on a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock.  I stamped the tiny background image around the sentiment in Pool Party Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using my Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies and my Big Shot.  I edged the stitched rectangle using my Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blend Marker.  I adhered it under the daffodils using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the large daffodil image from the You’re Inspiring stamp set on the front of the envelope.  I stamped the smaller daffodil image from the same stamp set on the envelope flap.  I colored all the daffodils in the same as I did for the card.

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

Stampin’ Up Wishing You Well

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  We’re half way through the week, YAY!  ONLY 2 WEEKS TILL SPRING!!  I don’t know about you, but I am definitely getting spring fever.  I can’t wait till it warms up.  I’m done with winter now.

For today’s card I used the beautiful Stampin’ Up Wishing You Well Stamp Set from the Annual Catalog.  I  love this set and it just screams SPRING to me.  Here’s my card.

Today I also played along with 2 challenges.  First is CAS(E) This Sketch Challenge #311.  Be sure to stop by to see what everyone has made and to play along.  Here is their sketch.

Next I played along with TGIF Sweet Color Challenge #201.  Be sure to stop by their blog to play along and see everyone’s projects.  Here are their beautiful spring colors.

I started with a So Saffron card front and stamped it with the Stampin’ Up Hardwood Stamp in So Saffron Ink.  I then ran it through my Big Shot using the Pinewood Planks Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  I adhered it to a Highland Heather mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the bouquet image from the Wishing You Well stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink on an angle.  I then stamped the flowers from the same stamp set in Highland Heather Ink on top of the Soft Sea Foam.  I stamped the bow image from the same stamp set on a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock in Highland Heather Ink and fussy cut it.  I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set in Highland Heather Ink on the bottom left of the artwork.

I adhered the artwork to a Highland Heather mat using Snail and then adhered it to my card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the bow to the artwork using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the card front to a Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I added a few So Saffron Share What You Love Artisan Pearls to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the bouquet image from the Wishing You Well stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink on a Whisper White panel stamping it off once.  I stamped the flowers in Highland Heather Ink over the Soft Sea Foam stamping them off once.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up A Big Thank You Stamp Set in Highland Heather Ink over the lightly stamped image.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Soft Sea Foam mat using Snail then adhered it 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 bouquet from the Wishing You Well stamp set on the front of the envelope the same as I did for the card front.  I stamped the Hardwood stamp on the envelope flap in So Saffron Ink.

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

The FREE stamp set coordinates with the March kit but it is not needed to complete the projects.
Supplies may be limited toward the end of the subscription period, so DON’T WAIT.
