Stampin’ Up! Happy Birthday To You

Good Monday morning my stamping friends.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Did anyone do anything fun?  I worked both days.  Saturday would have been a perfect day to stay in and craft here, it rained and rained all day.

For today’s card I used some of the Sale-A-Bration goodies that you can get for free with qualifying orders.  Here’s my card.

My colors were inspired by CAS Colour & Sketch Challenge #354.  Here are their colors.

My design was from Freshly Made Sketches #419.  Here is their sketch.

I started by embossing a Rococo Rose card front using the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder and a Seaside Spray card front using the Stone 3D Embossing Folder.  The Stone 3D Embossing folder is part of the Power of Hope Bundle you can earn  from Sale-A-Bration for FREE.  I adhered the Seaside Spray panel to the Rococo Rose panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, on an angle.  I cut the excess off using my Paper Trimmer.  I then adhered it to a Rococo Rose card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the cake image from the Stampin’ Up! Happy Birthday To You Cling Stamp Set (FREE Sals-A-Bration item) in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the image in using my Granny Apple Green, Rococo Rose and Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I brushed over the cake part of the image using my Clear Wink of Stella to give it a little shimmer. I fussy cut the image our using my Paper Snips.  I adhered the cake image to the Seaside Spray card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a thin strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Happy Birthday To You stamp set in Rococo Rose Ink.  I adhered the strip to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and a Glue Dot.  On a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped just the top of the cake image from the Happy Birthday To You stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink to get the flower image.  I colored the flower in using  my Granny Apple Green and Rococo Rose Stampin’ Blends Markers and fussy cut it using my Paper Snips.  I adhered the flower to the end of the sentiment using a Glue Dot and a Stampin’ Dimensional.  I added some Clear Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the flower centers on the cake and the fussy cut flower.  I added a few Granny Apple Green Glitter Enamel Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Happy Birthday To You stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I stamped the cake image from the Happy Birthday To You stamp set in Seaside Spray Ink, stamping off once, to the center of the Whisper White panel over the sentiment.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Seaside Spray mat using Snail and then 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 top of the cake image from the Happy Birthday To You stamp set on and angle  on the bottom of the envelope front.  I colored the image in using my Granny Apple Green and Rococo Rose Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a Rococo Rose panel of the 2019-2021 In-Color 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper 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! Tropical Oasis Birthday

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  How has everyone’s week started off?  Hope it’s going good so far.

I have a quick and easy masculine card for you today using some of the new Designer Series Paper from the January-June 2020 Mini Catalog.  Here’s my card.

I started by stamping the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Birthdays Cling Stamp Set in Versamark Ink on the bottom of an Early Espresso card front.  I immediately sprinkled it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I adhered a panel of Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper to the card front using Snail.

I wrapped a piece of 5/16″ Braided Burlap Trim around the bottom of the DSP on the card front and tied a knot.  I adhered the card front to an Early Espresso card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a Tropical Oasis Trinket to the left of the sentiment using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tropical Cling Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Early Espresso mat using Snail.  I adhered a panel of Tropical Oasis DSP to the inside of the Early Espresso card base using Snail.  I adhered the matted panel to the inside of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  On a small piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the palm tree image from the Timeless Tropical stamp set using Pear Pizzazz and Soft Suede Stampin’ Write Markers.  I cut the image out using the In The Tropic Dies.  I adhered the palm tree to the side of the sentiment using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the palm tree image from the Timeless Tropical stamp set twice on the envelope front colored  with my Pear Pizzazz and Soft Suede Stampin’ Write Markers.  I adhered a panel of Tropical Oasis 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! Best Dressed Peaceful Moments

Good Monday morning my stamping friends.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Did anyone do anything fun?  We had a little bit of snow here, but by Sunday afternoon it was gone.  Every winter I ask for one big snow storm, not these little ones that the snow disappears in a day.  I like to get one storm with about 1-2 feet of snow, enough that I just have to stay in for a day and craft.  Last year we never got one, just extremely cold.

For today’s card I used some of the new Designer Series Paper from the 2020 January-June Mini Catalog and an embellishment from the Sale-A-Bration Catalog.  Here’s my card.

I joined in with TGIF Challenge #247.  Here is their theme.

I started by adhering a panel of the Best Dressed 6X6 Designer Series Paper to a Petal Pink mat using Snail.  I then adhered it to a Lovely Lipstick mat using Snail.

I embossed a panel of Whisper White cardstock using the Parisian Flourish 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the embossed panel to a Petal Pink mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I then adhered it to a Lovely Lipstick mat using Snail.  I wrapped a piece of Bermuda Bay Bakers Twine from the Sale-A-Bration Metallic Baker’s Twine & Sequins Combo Pack around the matted card front twice and tied a bow.  I adhered the card front to a Whisper White card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Moments Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using the Painted Labels Dies.  I edged the die cut sentiment using my Bermuda Bay Stampin’ Write Marker.  I adhered the sentiment to the artwork using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and added a Lovely Lipstick Happiness Blooms Enamel Dot to the sentiment.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Peaceful Moments stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I fussy cut some of the shoes from the Best Dressed 6 X 6 DSP and adhered them to the panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Lovely Lipstick mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I adhered a strip of the Best Dressed 6 X 6 DSP to the bottom of 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! Make A Splash for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday.  How was everyone’s week?  Are you ready for the weekend?  I’ll be working all weekend, but I’m hoping to find time to do a little crafting.  I’m hearing of a bit of snow coming this weekend and that’s the perfect time to craft for me.  What do you have plans on doing?

We are 2 weeks into the new January-June 2020 Mini Catalog and I thought I’d offer you an extra bonus for 1 week only.

I will send you FREE the Peaceful Poppies Elements with the purchase of the Stampin’ Up! Painted Poppies Cling Stamp Set or Painted Poppies Bundle.  This is only available from me starting today, Friday January 17, 2020 through Friday January 24, 2020.  This is in addition to my other rewards you can find here.  If you purchase the Painted Poppies Bundle you not only receive the free gifts from me, you also get 10% off the bundle and qualify for a Sale-A-Bration item.   You might not want to pass this offer up!!

For today I have another pretty easy fun fold for you.  While I was on vacation my Stampin’ Up! order arrived.  I couldn’t wait to dig in to see what I got.  I used one of my new sets for today’s card that is available only to Hosts.  Take a look.

My colors were inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge #330.  Here are their colors.

I started with a Whisper White card base scored and folded at 4 1/4″.  I scored from the top left corner (by the fold) to the half way mark (2 3/4″) on the right edge and folded the corner to the front of the card.  I embossed a Pretty Peacock card front using the High Seas 3D Embossing Folder.  I then cut the panel on an angle starting at the top left corner and cut to the center (2 3/4″) of the right side.  I adhered the embossed panel to the front of the Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small panel of Thick Whisper White cardstock I stamped the fishbowl image from the Stampin’ Up! Make A Splash Host Photopolymer Stamp Set in Pretty Peacock Ink.  I stamped the water edge image from the Make A Splash stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink along the top of the fishbowl.  I stamped the sand/gravel image from the Make A Splash stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink along the bottom of the fishbowl.  I stamped the 3 greenery images from the Make A Splash stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink.  The center one I stamped full strength, the one on the left I stamped off once and the one on the right I stamped off twice.  I stamped 2 of the fish images from the Make A Splash stamp set in Flirty Flamingo Ink.  I stamped the bubbles from the Make A Splash stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink, stamping off twice, by each of the fish.  I fussy cut the fish bow using my Paper Snips.

I adhered the fishbowl to the corner overlapping piece using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added 3 Rhinestone Basic Jewels which I colored using my Dark Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blends Marker, above the fishbowl.

I adhered a panel of Pretty Peacock cardstock to the inside of the Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On a thin strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Make A Splash stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink and adhered it to the top right.  For the inner liner I cut a panel of Whisper White cardstock on an angle.  I stamped the sentiment from the Make A Splash stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink in the center of the panel.  I stamped the 2 fish images from the Make A Splash stamp set on either side of the sentiment in Flirty Flamingo Ink.  I stamped the 3 greenery images from the Make A Splash stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink along the bottom of the panel.  I stamped a tiny bit of the sand/gravel image from the Make A Splash stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink along the bottom of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the Pretty Peacock panel using Snail.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the fish images from the Make A Splash stamp set on the envelope front and flap in Flirty Flamingo Ink.  I stamped the greenery images from the Make A Splash stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink along the bottom of the envelope front.  I stamped part of the sand/gravel image from the Make A Splash stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink along the bottom front of the envelope.  I stamped the bubble and water edge images from Make A Splash stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink on the envelope front and flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try.  This stamp set is available when you host a qualifying party or you place an order of $150 or more.  You earn Stampin’ Rewards that can be used for free and discounted products.  If you are interested in more information, please feel free to contact me.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Tropical Oasis Chic Thank You Card

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  How is everyone’s week going?  Well it’s back to work for me today.  After getting home early Tuesday morning (2am), and spending the day unpacking, doing laundry and running for groceries, it’s time to get back into the normal routine and relax.  Vacations are great, but I love my daily routine days.

For today’s card I made you a really quick one featuring the beautiful Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper.  I think this paper is absolutely gorgeous.  Really makes me want to go to Hawaii.  Here’s my card.

I started by adhering a panel of the Tropical Oasis DSP to a Pear Pizzazz mat using Snail.  I adhered the matted DSP to a So Saffron card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Tropical Chic Cling Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink.  I stamped one of the leaf images from the Tropical Chic stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink over the sentiment stamping off once.  I cut the sentiment out using the Stitched Nested Labels Dies.  I adhered a piece of the Whisper White 5/8″ Flax Ribbon across the center of the card front using Snail.  I adhered the sentiment over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the hibiscus image from the Tropical Chic stamp set in Lovely Lipstick Ink.  I cut the image out using the Tropical Dies.  I adhered the hibiscus to the end of the sentiment using a Glue Dot.  I added a couple Lovely Lipstick Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots to the sentiment.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Tropical Chic stamp set in Early Espresso Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the leaf image from the Tropical Chic stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on the left side of the panel once in full strength and twice stamped off.  I adhered another hibiscus flower that I had stamped from the Tropical Chic stamp set in Lovely Lipstick and cut out using the Tropical Dies using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.   I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pear Pizzazz mat using Snail and then to the inside of the So Saffron card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the leaf image from the Tropical Chic stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on the side and bottom of the envelope front, some stamped full strength and some stamped off.  I adhered a panel of the Tropical Oasis 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! Purple Painted Poppies

Good Monday morning my stamping friends.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Did anyone do anything fun?  We spent Saturday at Hollywood Studios again and Sunday we went to Animal Kingdom.  Today we are heading to Magic Kingdom once again and will be leaving for home late tonight.  My husband booked an early morning flight coming so that we would get a full day in and a late night flight leaving so we would get another full day in.  I have gone on more rides this past week than I’ve gone on my entire life.  I don’t normally go on rides, but we were all having such a great time, I figured why not.  Like my niece told me “You only live once”.   I’m gong to need a vacation after this.  We will be arriving home early tomorrow morning (2am early) and 3 of the 4 of us have gotten sick.  I know where we’ll be heading tomorrow 😦  I don’t know about you, but the last place I want to be when I’m sick is on a plane.

I have a Clean and Simple card for you today,  Here’s my card.

I started by adhering a panel of the Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper to a Blackberry Bliss mat using Snail.  I just love the color variations in this paper.  I adhered the matted DSP to a Blackberry Bliss card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the small poppy image from the Stampin’ Up! Painted Poppies Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the image in using my Blackberry Bliss, Purple Posy and Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the dragonfly image from the Stampin’ Up! Friend Like You Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink above the poppies.  I cut the image out using the 2nd largest circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies.

I cut a strip of Purple Posy cardstock using the Banner Triple Punch. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips Cling Stamp Set in Blackberry Bliss Ink on the bottom of the banner.  I adhered the banner to the card front using Snail.  I adhered the artwork to the top of the banner using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a Purple Posy 2019-2021 In-Color Faceted Dot to the artwork.  I tied a small bow using the Blackberry Bliss Nature’s Twine and adhered it to the card front using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Blackberry Bliss Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the stemmed flower image from the Painted Poppies stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink to the left side of the panel.  I colored the image in using my Old Olive and Purple Posy Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Purple Posy mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Blackberry Bliss card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the small poppy image from the Painted Poppies stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink 3 times across the bottom of the envelope front.  I colored the image in using my Blackberry Bliss, Purple Posy and Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of the Peaceful Poppies 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!!
