Stampin’ Up Floral Essence Birthday Card

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was your weekend?  Did anyone do anything exciting?

For today’s card I used a few different stamp sets, a couple punches and dies.  Take a look.

The colors for my card were inspired by The Color Throwdown Challenge #552.  Here are their colors.

I also joined in with the Flower Challenge #34.  Here is their theme.

I started by adhering a panel of Neutrals 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper in Smoky Slate to a Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped 6 of the flower images from the Stampin’ Up Floral Essence Photopolymer Stamp Set in Smoky Slate Ink on a panel of Blushing Bride cardstock.  I punched the flowers out using my Perennial Flower Punch and adhered 2 of the punched flowers together to make a total of 3 flowers.  I added a little Wink of Stella in the center of each flower.  I punched 3 leaves out of Silver Foil Sheet using my Leaf Punch.

I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Stampin’ Up New Wonders Cling Stamp Set in Smoky Slate in on the largest circle I cut from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I adhered the circle to the largest scalloped circle which I cut from the Layering Circles Dies in Smoky Slate cardstock.  I arranged the flowers the way I wanted them on the circle and adhered the 2 end ones using Glue Dots and the center one using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the Silver Foil Leaves under the flowers using Glue Dots.  I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and added a few Pearls Basic Jewels.

On the inside I stamped another one of the flower images from the Floral Essence stamp set on a panel of Whisper White cardstock in Smoky Slate Ink.  I stamped one of the flowers off once and the other 2 full strength.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Itty Bitty Birthdays Cling Stamp Set in Smoky Slate Ink in the center of the Whisper White panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Blushing Bride 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 flower image from the Floral Essence stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink on the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of the Neutrals 6X6 DSP in Smoky Slate to the envelope front.

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

Stampin’ Up Friend Like You Tropical Chic For Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to Fun Fold Friday.  I hope you all have had a great week and are looking forward to the weekend.

Today I have a pretty quick fun fold for you.  I combined the Stampin’ Up Tropical Chic Cling Stamp Set and the Stampin’ Up Friend Like You Photopolymer Stamp Set.   Here’s my card.

My colors for my card were inspired by  CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge #330.  Here are their colors.

I started with a Night of Navy card base and scored it at 4 1/4″ and 1″.  I folded the card base in half and then folded the 1″ side back.  I took the 1/2″ strip of Whisper White cardstock and adhered it with Snail under the 1″ folded piece.

I cut out a couple of the leaves from the Tropical Dies in Bermuda Bay cardstock and adhered them on top of the 1″ folded edge.  On the small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Friend Like You stamp set in Night of Navy Ink.  I stamped a couple of the Hibiscus flowers from the Tropical Chic stamp set on the side of the sentiment in Mango Melody Ink.  I stamped a couple more of the flowers from the Tropical Chic stamp set in Mango Melody Ink on a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock and cut them out using them Tropical Dies.  I adhered the cut flowers to the sentiment using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals hanging off the right side.

I took a piece of the Gold Metallic Edged Ribbon and colored it using my Dark Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends Marker.  I wrapped the ribbon around the card front and tied a knot just above the sentiment.

I took the strip of Mango Melody cardstock and embossed it using the Layered Leaves 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the strip to the right side of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I stamped a couple more of the hibiscus flowers from the Tropical Chic stamp set in Mango Melody Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I stamped a couple of the leaves from the Tropical Chic stamp set in Bermuda Bay Ink on the Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the Friend Like You stamp set in Night of Navy Ink in the center of the Whisper White panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Night of Navy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the hibiscus flowers from the Tropical Chic stamp set in Mango Melody Ink on the card front.  I stamped a couple of the leaves from Tropical Chic stamp set behind the flowers on the envelope front in Bermuda Bay Ink.  I stamped a couple more of the leaves from the Tropical Chic stamp set in Bermuda Bay Ink on 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 Abstract Impressions Thank You Card

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  Hope you are all doing well today and your are having a good week.

Sometimes we get so hung up on the new items in the new 2019-2020 catalog that we forget about carry over sets.  For today’s card I used one of the carry over sets,  the Stampin’ Up Abstract Impressions Photopolymer Stamp Set.  Take a look.

I started by adhering a panel of Flirty Flamingo Brights 6 X 6 Designer Series to a Granny Apple Green card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered a strip of Soft Sea Foam cardstock across the center of the card.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the stem images from the Abstract Impressions stamp set in Granny Apple Green and Soft Sea Foam Inks.  I stamped the first part of the flower image from the Abstract Impressions stamp set in Flirty Flamingo Ink stamping off once.  I stamped the second step of the flower image from the Abstract Impressions stamp set in Flirty Flamingo Ink.  I cut the artwork out using the largest circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies.

I curved the sentiment from the Abstract Impressions stamp set on one of my blocks and stamped it in Granny Apple Green Ink on the top of the circle.  One of the great things about Photopolymer stamps is that you can change the shape of them very easily.  I stamped the small butterfly from the Stampin’ Up Butterfly Gala Photopolymer Stamp Set in Granny Apple Green Ink on a scrap of Soft Sea Foam card stock and punched it out using the Butterfly Duet Punch.  I stamped the butterfly body from the Butterfly Gala stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the punched butterfly. I stamped the butterfly antenna from the Butterfly Gala stamp set on the artwork in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink then adhered the butterfly to the artwork using a Glue Dot.   I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the stems and flowers from the Abstract Impressions stamp set, across the bottom of a Whisper White panel, the same as I did for the artwork on the card front.  I stamped the sentiment from the Abstract Impressions stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink above the flowers on the Whisper White panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Soft Sea Foam mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Granny Apple Green card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the stems and flowers from the Abstract Impressions stamp set on the envelope front the same as I did for the card.  I adhered a panel of Granny Apple Green Brights 6 X 6 DSP to the envelope flap.

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

Stampin’ Up Free As A Bird Thank You Card

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  How has everyone’s week started off?  Before I get started, don’t forget to check out my ordering special down below.  There’s less than a week to take advantage of it.

For today’s card I used a few different techniques, Embossing, Masking, Layering, Coloring, you get the drift.  Here’s my card.

I started by stamping the larger bird from the Stampin’ Up Free As A Bird Cling Stamp Set on a Whisper White panel in Early Espresso Ink.  I stamped the flowers and the leaves from the Free As A Bird stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on top of the panel using the Masking Technique.  I stamped the sentiment from the Free As A Bird stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on an angle on the top of the Whisper White panel.  I colored the bird, flowers and leaves in using my Calypso Coral, Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, Petal Pink and Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the artwork to a Pool Party mat using Snail.

I adhered 2 panels of Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper onto Pool Party Mats using Snail.  I embossed my Pool Party card front using the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder to give a little background texture.

I adhered the 2 matted DSP panels to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the matted artwork on top of the DSP using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the card front to a Pool Party card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the bird from the Free As A Bird stamp set in Early Espresso Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel stamping off 4 times.  I stamped the sentiment from the Free As A Bird stamp set over the top of the bird.  I stamped the flowers and leaves from the Free As A Bird stamp set in Early Espresso Ink in the corners of the Whisper White panel.  I colored the flowers and leaves in using my Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, Petal Pink and Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel 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 bird, flowers and leaves from the Free As A Bird stamp set on the envelope front in Early Espresso Ink and colored them in the same as I did for the card.  I adhered a panel of  Bird Ballad 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 Beautiful You Birthday Card

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s weekend?  I had to work all weekend, but Saturday night we went to a Somerset Patriots baseball game and had a bonus since it was a fireworks night.  I haven’t been to a game in a while and it was a lot of fun.  The ball field is only about 10 minutes from my house.  The fireworks afterwards were a lot better than I expected

For today’s card I made a pretty quick one for you using one of my all time favorite sets.  Here’s my card.

I absolutely love these colors together.  These are the colors from Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge #318 which I played along with.

My design came from the Fab Friday Challenge #167 which I also played along with.  Here is their sketch.

I started with a Petal Pink card front and embossed it using my Eyelet Lace Embossing Folder.  I adhered the card front to a Petal Pink card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the image from the Stampin’ Up Beautiful You Cling Stamp Set in Crumb Cake Ink.  I stamped the water mark image from the Beautiful You stamp set on top of the image of the woman in Mint Macaron Ink.  I took a strip of Calypso Coral cardstock and cut it out using my Stitched Lace Dies and then adhered it to the back of the Whisper White panel using Snail.  I adhered the artwork to the embossed card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue

On a panel of Calypso Coral cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Beautiful You stamp set in VersaMark Ink.  I immediately sprinkled it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I cut the sentiment out using the
Stitched Nested Label Dies and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added 3 Pearl Basic Jewels to the top of the artwork.

On the inside I stamped the dancing woman image from the Beautiful You stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink, stamping off twice, in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the Beautiful You stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink on top of the dancing woman image.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a  Mint Macaron mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Petal Pink card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card off I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the woman image from the Beautiful You stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped over the woman image with the water mark image from the Beautiful You stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink.  I adhered a panel of petal pink Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper in petal pink 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 Everything Amazing Birthday Card

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers.  How are you doing today?  The weekend is almost here again, hope you are starting to make some fun plans.

For today’s card a friend of mine asked me to make a card for a 50th birthday.  Here’s what I came up with.

I joined in with Sunday Stamps Challenge #208.  Here is their sketch.

I also played along with TGIF Challenge #219.  Here are their colors.

I started by embossing a panel of Purple Posy card stock using the Scripty 3D Embossing Folder.  I then took a piece of the Seaside Spray Scalloped Lined Ribbon and cut it in half length wise.  I adhered a piece to the top and bottom of the embossed panel using Snail.  I adhered the embossed panel to a 2019-2021 In-Color 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper Rococo Rose card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered the DSP card front to a Rococo Rose card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the large sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Everything Amazing Photopolymer Stamp Set in VersaMark Ink.  I immediately sprinkled it with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I cut the sentiment out using the Stitched Rectangle Dies.

I stamped the 2 smaller sentiment from the Everything Amazing stamp set in Rococo Rose Ink on the lines from the large sentiment.  I stamped the floral image from Stampin’ Up Pocketful of Happiness Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the top corner of the rectangle.  I colored the floral image in using my Rococo Rose and Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and added 3 gold Metallic Pearls.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Itty Bitty Birthdays Cling Stamp Set in VersaMark Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I immediately sprinkled it with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I stamped the floral images from the Pocketful of Happiness stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the top and bottom 2 corners and colored them in using my Purple Posy,  Rococo Rose and Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Rococo Rose card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card, I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the floral image from the Pocketful of Happiness stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored them in the same as I did for the card.  I adhered a panel of the 2019-2021 In-Color 6 X 6 DSP to the envelope flap.

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

Stampin’ Up Daisy Lane Birthday Card and Buying Special

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and that some of you were lucky enough to have a 4 day weekend. At the end of my post today I have a little special going on, so don’t forget to scroll down.

For today’s card I used the Stampin’ Up Daisy Lane Bundle for my card.  Here’s my card.

My design was inspired by the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #395.  Here is their sketch.

I also joined in with Watercooler Wednesday Challenge #228.  Here is their theme.

I started by adhering a panel of the gorgeous Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper to a Petal Pink card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered another strip of the Perennial Essence DSP across the center of the card front using Snail.

I cut a circle out or Whisper White cardstock using the largest circle from the Layering Circle Dies.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Beauty Abounds Cling Stamp Set in Blackberry Bliss Ink on the top of the circle.  I stamped the fern image from the Stampin’ Up Daisy Lane Cling Stamp Set 3 times in Old Olive Ink, stamping off once, below the sentiment on the circle.  On a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the smaller daisy from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Blackberry Bliss Ink twice and punched them out using the Medium Daisy Punch.  I adhered the daisies together using a Glue Dot and then adhered it to the center of the stamped circle using a Stampin’ Dimensional.

Using the Leaf Punch, I punched out 3 leaves from Old Olive Vellum paper from the Perennial Essence 12X12 Vellum Cardstock.  I adhered the leaves using Glue Dots under the punched daisy.  I adhered a Perennial Essence Floral Center in the center of the daisy.

On the inside I stamped the stem from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Old Olive Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock, stamping off 3 times.  I stamped the daisy image from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Blackberry Bliss Ink on the stem stamping off 4 times.  I stamped the sentiment from the Daisy Lane stamp set over the stamped image in Blackberry Bliss Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Blackberry Bliss mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Petal Pink card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card, I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the fern image from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Old Olive Ink on the bottom front stamping once in full strength and then stamped off once.  I stamped the daisy image from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Blackberry Bliss Ink between the fern.  On the envelope flap I adhered a panel of the Perennial Essence DSP.

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