Stampin’ Up! Happy & Heartfelt Thank You for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Does anyone have plans for the weekend? I’ll be at work tomorrow, but I have off on Sunday, YAY!!!

I have another quick fun fold card for you today with a little twist using some new product. Here’s my card for today.

I used the new Stampin’ Up! Happy & Heartfelt Cling Stamp Set along with the Sweet Talk Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by scoring and folding a Pool Party card base at 3 1/4″ & 4 1/4″, this is a book fold card. I then cut 1″ off the right side of the card front. I adhered the 1″ scored left side of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered a 7/8″ strip of Sweet Talk DSP to the adhered side of the card front using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered a panel of the Sweet Talk DSP to the card front using Stampin’ Seal. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Happy & Heartfelt stamp set in Pool Party Ink. I fussy cut the sentiment using my Paper Snips.

I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I wrapped a piece of White Bakers Twine from the Bakers Twine Essential Pack around the left side of the card base and tied a bow. I added a few Iridescent Rhinestones Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Happy & Heartfelt stamp set in Pool Party Ink on a Basic White panel. I adhered a small strip of the Sweet Talk DSP to the bottom of the Basic White panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to the inside of the Pool Party card base using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered a strip of Sweet Talk DSP to the right inside of the card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of Sweet Talk DSP to 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! Amazing Silhouettes CAS Birthday

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. I hope you all had a wonderful long weekend and are ready to take on a new year.

Today I have a sneak peek of a couple new sets for you using just Stamp, Ink and Paper. One you can buy and one you can earn for FREE. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Amazing Silhouettes Cling Stamp Set, which will be available for purchase starting tomorrow January 4th. I also used the Stampin’ Up! Special Moments Photopolymer Stamp Set, which is a FREE Sale-a-bration item you can earn starting tomorrow January 4th.

I started by using my Simply Scored Scoring Tool to make the background panel of Misty Moonlight cardstock. I put the cardstock in on an angle and using my Stylus, I scored the panel of cardstock every 1/2″. I turned the cardstock and scored again to make the diamond embossed panel, scoring every 1/2″. I flipped the cardstock so the raised side was up and adhered it to a Misty Moonlight card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the butterfly silhouette image from the Amazing Silhouettes stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink. I stamped the sentiment from the Special Moments stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink on the bottom of the panel.

I adhered the artwork to a Misty Moonlight mat and then to a Basic White mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Special Moments stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the butterfly silhouette image from the Amazing Silhouettes stamp set next to the sentiment. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Misty Moonlight mat and then to the inside of the Misty Moonlight card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the butterfly silhouette image from the Amazing Silhouettes stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the 2020-2022 In-Color 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! Queen Anne’s Lace Thank You

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone doing today? Hope you are enjoying your long weekend. For me, it’s the beginning of the month which means I have to go into work to do the bills. Not sure if I’m going to have to work at the register in between or not. We’re having a bit of a Covid outbreak in the store this past week, so I’ve been scrambling to get all the time filled in so that we have all the cashiers we need.

Today I have a mix of old and new for my card. I used a set from the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog and an Embossing Folder from the January-June 2022 Mini Catalog. Here’s my card for today.

I used the gorgeous Stampin’ Up! Queen Anne’s Lace Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the new Gingham Embossing Folder (available January 4, 2022), for my card today.

I started by stamping the stem image from the Queen Anne’s Lace stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink on a Basic White card front. I stamped the floral image from the Queen Anne’s Lace stamp set in Petal Pink Ink on the stem. I stamped the sentiment from the Queen Anne’s Lace stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink next to the floral image.

I adhered the card front to a Soft Sea Foam mat and then to a Basic White mat. I wrapped a piece of the new Petal Pink 1/8″ Cotton Ribbon from the Cotton Ribbon Combo Pack (available January 4, 2022) and tied a bow.

I embossed a panel of Soft Sea Foam cardstock using the new Gingham Embossing Folder and adhered it to a Soft Sea Foam card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Champagne Rhinestones Basic Jewels to the artwork.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Queen Anne’s Lace stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink on a Basic Whtie panel. I stamped the floral image from the Queen Anne’s Lace stamp set on the side of the panel the same as I did for the card front. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Soft Sea Foam mat and then to the inside of the Soft Sea Foam card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the floral image from the Queen Anne’s Lace stamp set on the envelope front the same as I did for the card. I embossed a panel of Soft Sea Foam cardstock using the Gingham Embossing Folder and adhered it 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! Bamboo Beauty Thank You

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends, Happy New Year!!! Welcome to 2022. How was everyone’s New Year’s Eve? Hope you were able to celebrate in a fun way. I went to work for a couple hours to get my end of the month/year stuff done came home and was able to reorganize my craft table (which is something I do every year on New Year’s Day). My husband and daughter made some appetizers, we watched a movie, which I fell asleep halfway through, but woke up at 11:54 just in time to welcome the new year and go back to sleep. Another exciting New Year’s Eve at our house. Today I have the day off, YAY!!!

I used another set from the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog today to make a clean and simple card using just Stamps, Ink and Paper. I thought I’d start the new year nice and simple. I did use Evening Evergreen, but for some reason in all the pictures it looks like Basic Black. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Bamboo Beauty Cling Stamp Set for my card today.

I started by adhering a sticky note that I had cut a circle out of on a Basic Whtie card front. Using my Blending Brushes, I started with So Saffron Ink, then Daffodil Delight Ink and Calypso Coral Ink around the edges. Once I had the color that I wanted I lifted the sticky note off my card front.

I stamped the bamboo images from the Bamboo Beauty stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink over the sun image. I stamped the leaf images from the Bamboo Beauty stamp set on the bamboo in Evening Evergreen Ink.

I stamped the sentiment from the Bamboo Beauty stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink next to the bamboo images. I adhered the card front to a Basic Whtie mat and then to an Evening Evergreen card base.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Bamboo Beauty stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the bamboo and leaf images from the Bamboo Beauty stamp set on the side of the panel in Evening Evergreen Ink, stamping off on scrap paper 3 times. I adhered the Basic Whtie panel to an Evening Evergreen mat and then to the inside of the Evening Evergreen card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the bamboo and leaf images from the Bamboo Beauty stamp set on the envelope front and flap in Evening Evergreen Ink.

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

I used the Stampin’ Up! Eden’s Garden Cling Stamp Set along with the Ever Eden DSP for my card today.

I started by cutting and adhering 3 equal strips of the Ever Eden DSP and adhering them to an Evening Evergreen card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, so I had a little wiggle room. I adhered the panel to a gold mat from the Brushed Metallic Paper.

I wrapped a piece of Evening Evergreen 3/8″ Open Weave Ribbon around the layered panel and tied a small bow. I adhered the layered panel to an Evening Evergreen card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the floral image from the Eden’s Garden stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink. I stamped the sentiment from the Eden’s Garden stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink over the floral image. I cut the image our using my Layering Circle Dies and adhered it over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Garden Gems, which will also be going away January 3, 2022, to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the floral image from the Eden’s Garden stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the sentiment from the Eden’s Garden stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink on top of the floral image. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Soft Succulent mat and then to the inside of the Evening Evergreen card base.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the floral image from the Eden’s Garden stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the Ever Eden 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! Special Moment CAS Sneak Peek

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend? Was everyone able to visit with family and friends for Christmas. I worked yesterday and it was like watching paint dry. It always amazes me with retail how it’s busy, busy, busy then it just dies.

I have a clean and simple card today using all Sale-a-bration items. Do you know that Sale-a-bration starts in just 8 days? I’m so excited!!! I can’t wait to get my hands on more of the free items. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Special Moments Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Daffodil Afternoon Designer Series Paper for my card today. Both of these items are free with a qualifying order during Sale-a-bration

I started by stamping the sentiment from the Special Moments stamp set in Versamark Ink on a panel of Evening Evergreen cardstock. I immediately sprinkled it with my White Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I punched the sentiment out using my Label Me Fancy Punch and punched the slits on either side of the punched sentiment.

I threaded a piece of the Evening Evergreen 3/8″ Chevron Ribbon through the punch and wrapped it around a panel of Daffodil Afternoon DSP adhering it on the back using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the panel to a Flirty Flaming card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added some Garden Gems (only available for 1 more week) to the sentiment and the flower centers.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Special Moments stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I adhered a strip of the Daffodil Daydream DSP to the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to an Evening Evergreen mat and then to the inside of the Flirty Flamingo card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic Whtie Medium Envelope. I stamped the daffodil image from the Stampin’ Up! Daffodil Daydream Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I colored the throat of the flower using my Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of the Daffodil Afternoon DSP to the envelope flap. I realized after I adhered it, that I used the wrong DSP oops.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my CAS card. Items will be available with a qualifying order starting on January 4, 2022. Get those shopping lists ready! Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Awesome Otter for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends Merry Christmas Eve and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Will you be spending time with friends or family tomorrow? We’ll be spending the day relaxing just my husband, daughter and me. My son and his girlfriend will be going to her family’s house. My niece and her family will be going to her husband’s family like they always do. So, our plan is to relax, watch Christmas movies, maybe stamp a little and just enjoy the day.

Today I have my simple go to fun fold card, another Z fold using some new product coming in the January-February Sale-a-bration catalog. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Awesome Otter Cling Stamp Set along with the Simply Marbleous Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by scoring and folding a Misty Moonlight card base at 2 3/4″ & 5 1/2″. I folded the card base in half first and then folded the front back along the 2 3/4″ score line.

I adhered a panel of the Simply Marbleous DSP to a Balmy Blue mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the Misty Moonlight card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the otter image from the Awesome Otter stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image in using my Balmy Blue, Calypso Coral and Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image our using my Layering Diorama Dies. I cut the next size larger Layering Diorama Die from a panel of Balmy Blue cardstock and adhered the artwork to it using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals only on the left half of the panel. I added a few of the new Pebbles Enamel Shapes on the bottom of the artwork.

On the inside I adhered a panel of the Simply Marbleous DSP to a Balmy Blue mat and then to the inside of the Misty Moonlight card base. I stamped the sentiment from the Awesome Otter stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped another otter image from the Awesome Otter stamp set on the bottom of the panel and colored it in using my Balmy Blue and Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic Whtie panel to a Balmy Blue mat and then to the inside left of the card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the otter image from the Awesome Otter stamp set on the envelope front in Tuxedo Black Ink and colored it using my Balmy Blue and Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of the Simply Marbleous DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. The items I used for my card today will be available starting January 4, 2022. Both the DSP and the stamp set are free with qualifying orders. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Daffodil Daydream for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends, Merry Christmas Eve, Eve! Is everyone just about ready for the big day? I’m not. I have to work all day today and I don’t have 1 gift wrapped. I still have to pick up a gift or 2, which may end up having to wait. The lines in the store were crazy the other day. Now if it’s something I can buy at the dog bakery or the hardware store, then I will get it.

Welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. If you are hopping over from Akiko Sudano’s blog, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we have a Sketch Challenge. I can’t wait to see what everyone has created this week. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s awesome projects. Here is my card using this weeks Sketch.

I used the new Stampin’ Up! Daffodil Daydream Cling Stamp Set along with Sale-a-bration items, the Stampin’ Up! Special Moments Photopolymer Stamp Set and Daffodil Afternoon Designer Series Paper for my card today.

Here is our sketch for this week.

I started by cutting the center of a panel of the Daffodil Afternoon DSP using the 3rd largest Stitched Rectangle Die.

I adhered the larger piece of the DSP to a Pale Papaya card base. I took the center piece that I cut out and flipped it over and adhered it to the center of the adhered piece on the card base. Can we just take a moment to look at this gorgeous DSP!!!

On a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the daffodil image from the Daffodil Daydream stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink, stamping off 3 times on a piece of scrap paper. I colored just the throat of the daffodil using my Pale Papaya Stampin’ Blends Markers. I went over what I colored using the Color Lifter Stampin’ Blend Marker so there was just a very light color. I stamped the sentiment from the Special Moments stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink over the stamped image. I cut the image our using the 4th largest Layering Circle Dies. I adhered a piece of the Pale Papaya 3/8″ Open Weave Ribbon to the card front and adhered the circle over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Special Moments stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Very Vanilla panel. I stamped the daffodil image from the Daffodil Daydream stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink, stamping off 3 times on scrap paper, and colored it the same as I did for the card front. I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Basic Black mat and then to the inside of the Pale Papaya card base.

To complete my card I decorated a Very Vanilla Medium Envelope. I stamped the daffodil image from the Daffodil Daydream stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and colored it using my Pale Papaya Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of the Daffodil Afternoon DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for visiting my blog today. Items used for my card today will be available starting January 4, 2022, from the January-June 2022 Mini Catalog and the Sale-a-bration catalog. Now that you’ve seen my card, take a minute to hop through all our projects today. If you click on the Next Blog button, you’ll go to Tara’s page.

Stampin’ Up! Back On Your Feet CAS

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. We’re halfway through the week and only 3 days till Christmas. I haven’t wrapped a thing, let alone shopped. My husband has done a lot of the shopping for us this year, I’m just not feeling up to it.

I have a quick fun card today using product from the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog. Every once in a while, I like to pull things out I haven’t played with in a bit. Here’s my card today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Back on Your Feet Cling Stamp Set along with the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper for my card today.

My design is from Sunday Stamps Sketch Challenge #272.

My colors are from Inspire. Create. Color Challenge #106.

I started by embossing a Very Vanilla card front using the Timber 3D Embossing Folder and adhering it to a Very Vanilla card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of In Good Taste DSP I stamped the sentiment from the Back on Your Feet stamp set in Versamark Ink on the bottom. I immediately sprinkled it with my white embossing powder from the Embossing Powder Basics and set it using my Heat Tool. I adhered the panel to a Cinnamon Cider mat using Stampin’ Seal. I colored a piece of White Bakers Twine using my Cinnamon Cider Stampin’ Blends Marker. Once it was dry, I wrapped it around the layered panel and tied a small bow. I adhered the panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the sloth image from the Back on Your Feet stamp set in Early Espresso Ink. I colored the image in using my Cinnamon Cider and Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends Markers. I fussy cut the image using my Paper Snips and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and Glue Dots. I added a couple Cinnamon Cider 2020-2022 In-Color Square Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Back on Your Feet stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on a Very Vanilla panel. I stamped the turtle image from the Back on Your Feet stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Cinnamon Cider mat and then to the inside of the Very Vanilla card base.

To finish my card I decorated a Very Vanilla Medium Envelope. I stamped the sloth image from the Back on Your Feet stamp set in Early Espresso Ink and colored it using my Cinnamon Cider and Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends Markers.

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

Stampin’ Up! Happiest of Birthdays CAS

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone’s weekend going? Well, I finished my baking yesterday. There was another little hiccup in my day, but I got it done. I ended up having to go into work for a few hours, one of my cashiers was sick and I couldn’t get ahold of anyone else to go in 😦 So instead of finishing up all my baking by 4pm, I didn’t finish up until around 9pm. It’s all done, now just a few finishing touches and decorating, putting together all the trays I give out and I’m done for this year.

I have a super simple clean and simple card for you today using some product from the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Happiest of Birthdays Cling Stamp Set along with the Pattern Party Host Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by adhering a panel of the Pattern Party DSP to a Basic Black mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to a Poppy Parade card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Happiest of Birthdays stamp set in Tuxedo Black ink. I adhered the panel to a Basic Black mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a few of the Basic Black Classic Matte Dots to the sentiment.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Happiest of Birthdays stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I adhered a strip of the Pattern Party DSP to the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Basic Black mat and then to the inside of the Poppy Parade card base.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of the Pattern Party DSP to 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!!
