Stampin’ Up Dragonfly Dreams

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers.  Has anyone made any fun plans for the weekend?  It’s supposed to be a nice weekend here by me.  More like spring weather.

For today’s card I pulled out a set I haven’t used in a while, the Stampin’ Up Dragonfly Dreams Stamp Set.  Take a look.

I’ve combined 2 different challenges with my card today.  The Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #310.  Here is their sketch.

I also joined in with the Fab Friday #160 color challenge.  Here are their beautiful color combo.

I started with a Highland Heather card front and stamped 2 dragonflies from the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set in Versamark Ink.  I sprinkled them with Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat set them with my Heat Tool.  I adhered the card front to a Highland Heather card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Using my Big Shot, I cut out 2 of the largest dies from the Flourish Thinlits from a piece of Lemon Lime Twist cardstock.  I stamped the sentiment from the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set on a strip of Whisper White cardstock in Bermuda Bay ink.

I adhered a panel of Flirty Flamingo Brights 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Flirty Flamingo mat using Snail.   I adhered 2 pieces of the die cut to the sentiment strip using Snail, then adhered it to the matted DSP using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the matted DSP  to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Clear Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.  I colored one Clear Rhinestone Basic Jewel in using my Dark Bermuda Bay Stampin’ Blend Marker and adhered it to the sentiment strip.

On the inside on a Whisper White panel I stamped the dragonfly from the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set in Highland Heather Ink in the center.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Itty Bitty Birthdays Stamp Set in Bermuda Bay Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Highland Heather card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped a couple of dragonflies from the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set in Highland Heather Ink on the envelope front.  I adhered a piece of Flirty Flamingo 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.  Hope everyone has a fantastic weekend.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up You’re Inspiring

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers.  How is everyone doing today?  Are you just about ready for the weekend?

I have an Easter card for you today using the Stampin’ Up You’re Inspiring Stamp Set.  One of my favorite flowers this time of year is the Daffodil.  I have different colors blooming in my gardens.  I actually colored my card in today to look just like the ones in my front garden.  Here’s my card.

I joined in with Just Us Girls #481 Wild Card Week Challenge.  Here is their challenge.

I started with a Crumb Cake card front and ran it through my Big Shot using the Basket Weave Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  I adhered the card front to a Pear Pizzazz card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the larger daffodil image from the You’re Inspiring stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the image in using my Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers for the throat of the daffodil.  I colored the leaves in using my Pear Pizzazz Stampin’ Write Marker.  I adhered the artwork to a Pear Pizzazz mat using Snail.

I wrapped a piece of the Petal Pink/Whisper White 5/8″ Variegated Ribbon around the artwork and tied a bow.  I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the smaller daffodil image from the You’re Inspiring stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink along the bottom of a Whisper White panel.  I colored the daffodils in the same as I did for the card front.  I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set in the center of the Whisper White panel in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Pear Pizzazz card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the larger daffodil image from the You’re Inspiring stamp set on the envelope front and the envelope flap in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored them in the same as I did for the card front.

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

Stampin’ Up Half Full Birthday Card

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers and Happy April Fools Day!!.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Did anyone do anything fun?  It was the end of the month, so I had to work.

For today’s card I made a pretty quick and easy card for you using the Stampin’ Up Half Full Stamp Set.  Here’s my card.

I started with an Old Olive card front and ran it through my Big Shot with the Layered Leaves Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.

On a strip of Wood Textures Designer Series Paper I stamped the sentiment from the Half Full stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the grapes and the leaves in with my Blackberry Bliss and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I made it into a banner using the Banner Triple Punch.  I made a smaller banner from a piece of Floral Romance Specialty Designer Series Paper.

I adhered both banners to the Old Olive card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I wrapped a piece of Blackberry Bliss Nature’s Twine around the card front and tied a bow.  I adhered the card front to a Blackberry Bliss card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  To add a little bling, I added a few Clear Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped two wine glasses from the Half Full stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the bottom of a Whisper White panel.  I masked the one wine glass and stamped the wine bottle from the same stamp set next to them.  I colored the wine in the glass in using my Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers. It’s very hard to see, but I added a few Heart Epoxy Droplets above the wine glasses.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the wine glasses from the Half Full stamp set along the bottom of the envelope front and colored them in using my Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a piece of the Floral Romance Specialty 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 Painted Seasons Double Time Technique

Good Saturday morning my fellow stampers. I don’t usually do posts on the weekends, but I wanted to show you one last Sale-A-Bration card.  Tomorrow is your last day to order any Sale-A-Bration items.

RUN DON’T WALK TO YOUR COMPUTERS TO PLACE YOUR ORDERS.

Today’s card I used the gorgeous Distinctive Stampin’ Up Painted Seasons Stamp Set and the Stampin’ Up Part Of My Story Stamp Set. I also tried the Double Time Technique for my card.  I am really going to miss this Distinctive set. Here’s my card.

The colors I used were part of The Color Throwdown Challenge #536.

I started by taking 2 panels of Very Vanilla cardstock and put the tiniest amount of Snail in the center to just hold them in place.  I stamped the sentiment from the Part Of My Story stamp set in Soft Suede Ink in the center of the top panel.  I stamped the flower image from the Painted Seasons stamp set randomly around on the cardstock in Blushing Bride Ink.  I stamped the fern image from the same stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink randomly between the flowers.  I stamped the leaf image from the same stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink stamping off once.

I adhered each of the Very Vanilla panels to a Blushing Bride mat using Snail.  I lined up the images and adhered the smaller matted panel to the larger matted panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I then adhered the artwork to a Pear Pizzazz card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the flowers, ferns and leaves from the Painted Seasons stamp set randomly on a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Strong And Beautiful Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink in the center of the Very Vanilla panel.  This stamp set has the most beautiful sentiments and font in it.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Blushing Bride mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Pear Pizzazz card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I stamped the flower, fern and leaf images from the Painted Seasons stamp set randomly on the envelope front and the envelope flap the same as I did for the card front.

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit my blog today.  I hope you liked my Double Time card and will give it a try.  Enjoy your weekend.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up All Adorned

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers.  So how was everyone’s week?  Have we made any plans for the weekend?  This is your LAST weekend to get any Sale-A-Bration items.  I’m really going to miss some of the stamp sets.

For today’s card, I’m finishing out the week as promised, with another Sale-A-Bration stamp set.  I have to admit, I didn’t jump at this set, until I first saw it used and then I had to have it.  It’s the Stampin’ Up All Adorned Stamp Set and I paired it up with the Painted Seasons Designer Series Paper.  Take a look.

I was able to include my card in 2 challenges also.  First is the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #309.  Be sure to stop by their blog to play along and see what everyone has made.  Here’s their sketch for the week.

Next up is Sunday Stamps Easter Hues Color Challenge #201.  They have some gorgeous projects on their blog, be sure to stop by.  Here are their colors.

I started with a Pool Party card base and adhered a panel of Painted Seasons Designer Series Paper (Sale-A-Bration item) to the front using Snail.  I adhered a strip of Highland Heather cardstock using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped the sentiment from the All Adorned stamp set (Sale-A-Bration item) in Highland Heather Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  Using my Big Shot, I cut the sentiment out using the 2nd largest square from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.  Using the Layering Squares Framelits Dies, I cut the Balmy Blue cardstock one size larger than the stitched square and I cut the So Saffron scalloped square one size larger than the Balmy Blue.  I adhered the 3 squares together using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and adhered them to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a small Mint Macaron bow made from the Nature’s Twine and I added a couple Mint Macaron Faceted Dots to the artwork.

On the inside I stamped the corner image from the All Adorned stamp set in the corners of a Whisper White panel with Pool Party Ink.  My Stamparatus really helped with this.  I just lined the cardstock up with the Small Grid Paper for my Stamparatus and turned it and lined it up with the same lines stamping all 4 corners perfectly.  It took me a while to get the hang of the Stamparatus, but once I did, I love it.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Part Of My Story Stamp Set (Sale-A-Bration item) in the center with Highland Heather Ink. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Highland Heather mat using Snail and then adhered it 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 was having so much un with my All Adorned stamp set I decided to use another one of the stamps on the envelope front.  It’s 2-steps so I stamped the first step in Highland Heather Ink across the bottom of the envelope front, then I stamped the second step in Mint Macaron Ink.  I adhered a panel of the Painted Seasons 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!!

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers.  The week is almost over, has anyone made plans for the weekend.

For today’s card I’ve used yet another Sale-A-Bration stamp set.  We’ve only got 4 days left till they are gone.  I used the Stampin’ Up So Hoppy Together Stamp Set.  I can’t help but smile every time I see these little frogs.  Here’s my card

My card also played along with 3 challenges today.  First is the Freshly Made Sketches #381.  Here is their sketch for the week.

I also joined in with Inspire. Create Theme: Pets Challenge # 039.

I played along with Paper Craft Crew Sketch Challenge #331.  This is the first time I’ve done a challenge like this and I had a lot of fun with it.  I went down the right side.  Here’s their sketch.

I started by stamping the frog on the unicycle image from the So Hoppy Together stamp set on a piece of Whisper White cardstock in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored it in using my Basic Black, Calypso Coral, Granny Apple Green and Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the image out using my Big Shot and my Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies.  I added a few Grapefruit Grove, Highland Heather and Lemon Lime Twist Gingham Gala Adhesive-Backed Sequins to the artwork so that it looked like the frog was juggling.

I adhered a piece of Lemon Lime Twist Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper to a Basic Black card front using Snail.  I adhered a strip of Grapefruit Grove cardstock along the seam of the DSP using Snail

I stamped the sentiment from the So Hoppy Together stamp set in Versamark Ink on the Gingham Gala DSP and sprinkled it with my Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  I heat set it using my Heat Tool.  I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the card front to a Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment and the top of the frog on the unicycle from the So Hoppy Together stamp set on a panel of Whisper White cardstock in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the frog in the same as I did on the card front.  I adhered a thin strip of Gingham Gala DSP on the left side of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Basic Black 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 frog from the So Hoppy Together stamp set on the envelope front and colored them in the same as I did for the card front.  I adhered a piece of Gingham Gala 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.  This stamp set is one of many that is FREE with a $50 order during Sale-A-Bration which will be ending on Sunday.  If you’ve been wanting any of the free items, don’t wait.  Grab them while you still can.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up Butterfly Gala Quick and Easy card

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was your weekend?  We had a beautiful one here. I took my 4 legged furry baby out and went for over a 5 mile walk yesterday.  It felt so good to be out walking and not cold.  Jasmine loved every minute of the walk too.

For today’s card I made another quick and easy card for you featuring a Sale-A-Bration item.  I’m going to try to feature a different Sale-A-Bration item each day this week.  This is your LAST WEEK OF SALE-A-BRATION.  This wonderful time of year ends Sunday, so if there are items that you would like to receive for free, now’s the time to get them.  Here is my card.

 I started with a Lemon Lime Twist card front and adhered a piece of the beautiful  Sale-A-Bration Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper to it using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Butterfly Gala Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the bottom portion of the cardstock.  I then ran it through my Big Shot using the Subtle Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder to give it a little texture.

I wrapped a piece of Grapefruit Grove Nature’s Twine around the bottom and tied a bow.  I adhered a large and small grapefruit grove butterfly and 2 small daffodil delight butterflies, that I had punched out from another sheet of the Botanical Butterfly DSP using my Butterfly Duet Punch, to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the card front to a Lemon Lime Twist card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a few Daffodil Delight and 1 Grapefruit Grove Gingham Gala Adhesive-Backed Sequins to the card front.

On the inside I adhered another piece of the Botanical Butterfly DSP to the inside of the Lemon Lime Twist card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I stamped the sentiment from the Butterfly Gala stamp set toward the top of a panel of Whisper White cardstock using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the Botanical Butterfly DSP on the inside of the card base using Snail.  I adhered a daffodil delight and lemon lime twist butterfly using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I adhered a Lemon Lime Twist butterfly to the envelope front and a panel of the Botanical Butterfly DSP to the envelope flap.  This was a very quick and easy card that the DSP did most of the work for you.

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