Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Autumn for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends and welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop.  How is everyone doing today?  If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we have color challenge with some beautiful fall colors. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects .
Here are our colors for this week.

Here is my card using these colors.

My design is from Fusion Card Challenge.  I chose to use just the sketch.  Here is their challenge.

I also played along with Daisy Chain Challenge #44.  Their Theme is ‘For Boys/Men’.

I joined in with Global Design Project #255.  They have a Theme Challenge this week. Here’s their theme.

I started by embossing an Early Espresso panel using the Old World Paper 3D Embossing Folder. 

I cut a panel of the Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper using my Stitched Nested Labels Dies.  I adhered the die to the side of the embossed panel, hanging over the edge a bit, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, leaving a spot to insert the sentiment under the die.  I trimmed the edge of the DSP using my Paper Trimmer.  I adhered the card front to a Crumb Cake card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Autumn Photopolymer Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink on a strip of Very Vanilla cardstock.  I adhered the sentiment just under the die cut using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  On a small panel of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the leaf images from the Beautiful Autumn stamp set 2 times each.  I stamped the outline of the maple leaves in Cajun Craze Ink and the outline of the oak leaves in Mint Macaron Ink.  I then stamped the fill image from the maple leaf in Cajun Craze Ink, stamping off once over the outline images.  I stamped the fill image from the oak leaf in Mint Macaron Ink, stamping off once over the outline images.  I stamped the outline image of the acorn from the Beautiful Autumn stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the Very Vanilla panel.  I stamped the top of the acorn fill image in Early Espresso Ink, stamping off once over the outline image.  I stamped the bottom section of the acorn in Crumb Cake Ink, stamping off once over the outline image.  I cut the leaves and the acorn out using my Autumn Punch Pack.  I adhered the maple leaves to the right side of the sentiment using Multipurpose Liquid Glue for the bottom one and a Stampin’ Dimensional for the top leaf.  I adhered the oak leaves and the acorn to the left side of the sentiment using Multipurpose Liquid Glue for the bottom leaf, a Stampin’ Dimensional for the acorn and a Glue Dot for the top leaf.  I made a double loop bow using Linen Thread and adhered it to the top of the acorn using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Beautiful Autumn stamp set in Early Espresso Ink in the center of a Very Vanilla panel.  I stamped the outline of the maple leaf from the Beautiful Autumn stamp set in Cajun Craze Ink next to the sentiment.  I stamped the fill image of the maple leaf in Cajun Craze Ink, stamping off once, over the outline image.  I stamped the outline of the oak leaf from the Beautiful Autumn stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink.  I stamped the fill image of the oak leaf in Mint Macaron Ink, stamping off once, over the outlined image.  I stamped the acorn image from the Beautiful Autumn stamp set in Early Espresso Ink below the oak leaf.  I stamped the top of the acorn fill image in Early Espresso Ink, stamping off once, over the outline image.  I stamped the bottom fill image of the acorn in Crumb Cake Ink, stamping off once, over the outlined image.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to an Early Espresso mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Crumb Cake card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card, I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I stamped the leaf and acorn images from the Beautiful Autumn stamp set along the bottom front of the envelope the same as I did for the card.  I adhered a panel of the Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for visiting my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Now that you’ve seen my card, take a minute to hop through all our projects today.

Stampin’ Up! Christmas Means More CAS

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  How has everyone’s week started off?  I hope everyone had a productive one.

For today I have a quick and easy card for you.  Here’s today’s card.

I started by adhering a Wonder of the Season Specialty Designer Series Paper card front to a Cherry Cobbler mat using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered the matted card front to an Old Olive card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Christmas Means More Photopolymer Stamp Set on a panel of Whisper White cardstock in Cherry Cobbler Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using the 2nd largest circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I colored the bells in using my Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the sentiment to a scalloped Cherry Cobbler mat that I had cut using my Layering Circle Dies.

I adhered a piece of 1/8″ Old Olive/Gold Trim from the All The Trimmings Ribbon Combo Pack, to the card front using a small amount of Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered the matted sentiment over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Wrapped In Christmas Cling Stamp Set in Cherry Cobbler Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the bell image from the Christmas Means More stamp set on the top of the panel and by the sentiment.  I colored the bells in using my Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Old Olive card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the bell image from the Christmas Means More stamp set in Old Olive Ink on the envelope front and colored them in using my Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of Wonder of the Season 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! Arrange A Thanksgiving Wreath

Good Monday morning my stamping friends.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Did anyone do anything fun?  I hope you are all getting off to a great start of a new week.

For today I played with another new to me set from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.  Here’s my card for today.

I started by adhering a panel of Poinsettia Place Designer Series Paper to a Just Jade mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to a Soft Suede card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Using the Wreath Builder Dies, I cut one of the wreaths from a panel of Cinnamon Cider cardstock and one from a panel of Just Jade cardstock.  I cut 4 flowers from the same die set out of a panel of Bumblebee cardstock and 4 flower centers from the Cinnamon Cider cardstock.  I stamped the flower center image from the Stampin’ Up! Arrange A Wreath Photopolymer Stamp Set in Cinnamon Cider Ink on the flower center dies.  I adhered the centers to the Bumblebee flowers using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the Just Jade wreath on top of the Cinnamon Cider wreath using Multipurpose Liquid Glue then adhered it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the flowers on the bottom of the wreath using Stampin’ Dimensionals and Glue Dots.

I made a small bow using the 1/4″ Bumblebee Gingham Ribbon and adhered it to the top of the wreath using a Glue Dot.  I stamped the sentiment from the Arrange A Wreath stamp set in Cinnamon Cider Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I adhered a thin strip of Just Jade cardstock using Stampin’ Seal on the bottom back of the sentiment and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Bumblebee 2020-2022 In-Color Enamel Dots to the sentiment and card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Country Home Photopolymer Stamp Set in Cinnamon Cider Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I adhered the extra flower I die cut above the sentiment using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Just Jade mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Soft Suede card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I adhered a strip of Poinsettia Place DSP to the front of the envelope 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! Sweetest Time Christmas

Good Sunday morning my fellow stampers.  How is everyone’s weekend going?  My daughter is coming home today, YAY!!!  She’s great being away for the first few days, by mid week she’s ready to come home.  It’ll be great having her back.  For the first time in 36 years that I’ve been working at the store I messed up.  I got up, dressed and went into work yesterday, just like I do every weekend.  The difference was that I wasn’t scheduled to work until today.  I make the monthly schedule up for everyone and I couldn’t remember that I wasn’t working.  I felt so foolish, but at the same time, I had a nice early start to my day yesterday.  I’ll be at work all day today, we double checked the schedule to make sure 😉

For today I have a pretty quick and easy card for you using another new set from the August-December 2020 Mini Catalog.  Here’s my card for today.

My colors are from Just Add Ink Challenge #519.  Here are their colors.

My design is from Try Stamping on Tuesday Challenge #470.  Here is their sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of In Good Taste Designer Series Paper to a Seaside Spray card base using Stampin’ Seal.  On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the candle image from the Stampin’ Up! Sweetest Time Photopolymer Stamp Set in Seaside Spray Ink.  I stamped the flame image from the Sweetest Time stamp set on top of the candles in So Saffron Ink.  I colored 2 of the candles in using my Purple Posy Stampin’ Blends Marker and the center one in using my Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the images again on another panel of Whisper White cardstock, colored 2 of the candles in using my Purple Posy Stampin’ Blends Markers and fussy cut them using my Paper Snips.

I embossed a panel of Misty Moonlight cardstock using the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the artwork to the embossed panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the 2 fussy cut candles to the artwork using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I wrapped a piece of Misty Moonlight/Silver Bakers Twine from the Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack around the panel and tied a bow.  I adhered the matted panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Seaside Spray cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Christmas Cling Stamp Set in Misty Moonlight Ink.  I cut the image out using one of the dies from the Tasteful Labels Dies and adhered it to the card front, sneaking it just under the artwork, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Sweetest Time stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the candle image from the Sweetest Time stamp set in Seaside Spray Ink and colored it in using my Purple Posy Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the flame image from the Sweetest Time stamp set in So Saffron Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Misty Moonlight mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Seaside Spray card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the candle image from the Sweetest Time stamp set in Seaside Spray Ink on the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of In Good Taste 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! Celebrate Sunflowers Together

Good Saturday morning my fellow stampers.  How has everyone’s weekend started off?  I’m at work today, but I have off tomorrow.  My daughter will be coming home tomorrow from house, cat & dog sitting.  I’ll be happy to have her home again.

For today’s card I went a little out of my comfort zone a little and tried something a little different.  Here’s my card for today.

My design is from Freshly Made Sketches  Challenge #449.  Here is their sketch.

My colors are from As You See It Sunflower Skies Challenge #232.  Here are their colors.

I also joined in with Double “D” Challenge.  Their theme is Sunflowers.

I started by adhering a panel of Bermuda Bay from the Brights 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Bermuda Bay card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the small sunflower image from the Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers Cling Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink.  I colored the flower in using my Water Painter with Crushed Curry Ink and my Bermuda Bay, Cajun Craze and Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the image out using my Stitched Triangle Dies.  I cut another triangle the same size from a panel of Cajun Craze cardstock.  I stamped the Cajun Craze triangle using the splatter image from the Stampin’ Up! Gather Together Photopolymer Stamp Set in Cajun Craze Ink.  I stamped a small panel of Crushed Curry cardstock with the wheat image from the Gather Together stamp set in Crushed Curry Ink and cut it out using a smaller triangle from the Stitched Triangles Dies.  I adhered the Cajun Craze triangle to the card front using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered the sunflower triangle over the Cajun Craze triangle using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the small Crushed Curry triangle to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Gather Together stamp set in Cajun Craze Ink.  I sponged the edges using my Sponge Dauber with Crushed Curry Ink and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Crushed Curry Playing With Patterns Resin Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Gather Together stamp set in Cajun Craze Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the small sunflower image from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Crushed Curry Ink, stamping off twice, in the center of the panel.  I adhered a strip of the Brights 6 X 6 DSP to the bottom of the panel using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Crushed Curry mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Bermuda Bay card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated  a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the small sunflower image from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set on the envelope front and flap.  I colored the images in using my Water Painters with Crushed Curry Ink and my Bermuda Bay, Cajun Craze 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! Coming Home for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends and welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop.  How is everyone doing today?  If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we have sketch challenge. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects .
Here is the sketch we had to work from.

Here’s my card for today using this sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of Plaid Tidings 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Shaded Spruce card base using Stampin’ Seal.  I embossed a panel of Cherry Cobbler cardstock using the Wrapped in Texture Embossing Folder and adhered it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Using the  Stampin’ Up! Coming Home Photopolymer Stamp Set, I stamped the car, house, trees and wreath in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I colored all the images in using my Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, Shaded Spruce, Smoky Slate, So Saffron and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut all the images out using my Home Together Dies.

From the same panel of Whisper White cardstock, I cut the largest oval from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I adhered the 2 largest trees to the oval using Glue Dots.  I adhered the house, trees and car to the oval using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added the wreath to the house using a Stampin’ Dimensional.  I adhered the oval to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Christmas Cling Stamp Set in Shaded Spruce Ink on the Whisper White panel and fussy cut it using my Paper Snips and adhered it to the top of the embossed panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Wishes & Wonder Cling Stamp Set in Shaded Spruce Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the large and small trees from the Coming Home stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the bottom of the panel and colored them in using my Shaded Spruce and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Shaded Spruce card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the card and house images from the Coming Home stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front.  I colored the images in using my Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, Smoky Slate and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of the Plaid Tidings 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. Now that you’ve seen my card, take a minute to hop through all our projects today.

Stampin’ Up! Blossoms In Bloom

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  We’re halfway through the week and almost to the weekend.  Hope you are all having a productive week.  My day didn’t go exactly as planned yesterday.  I thought I was going to be alone all day and get so much done.  My sons girlfriend was at our house and didn’t leave till almost noon and my daughter called me because she forgot  things and needed me to either bring them to her or pick her up.  I ended up picking her up since I needed her to take my car so she could come home today to wait for a delivery while I’m at work.

For today’s card I decided to make something a little more summery, since it is still summer after all.  Here’s my card for today.

My design is from Global Design Project #254.  Here is their sketch

My colors are from CAS Colours & Sketch challenge #384.  Here are their colors.

I started by cutting the largest die from the Many Layered Blossoms Dies from a panel of Pool Party cardstock, adhered to an Adhesive Sheet, and adhered it to a Pool Party card base.  I cut the smaller flowers from the Many Layered Blossoms Dies from panels of Daffodil Delight and Highland Heather cardstock.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Blossoms In Bloom Photopolymer Stamp Set in Pool Party Ink.  I stamped the small flowers from the Blossoms In Bloom stamp set in Highland Heather Ink on either side of the sentiment and stamped the centers in Daffodil Delight Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a thin Pool Party mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered the small Highland Heather flowers to the small Daffodil Delight flowers using Multipurpose Liquid Glue just in the centers.  I adhered the die cut flowers to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the large floral image from the Blossoms In Bloom stamp set in Highland Heather Ink, stamping off once, on a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the flower center image from the Blossoms In Bloom stamp set in Daffodil Delight Ink, stamping off once, in the center of each flower.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Bloom & Grow Photopolymer Stamp Set in Pool Party Ink in the center of the Whisper White panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pool Party mat using Stampin’ Seal and then 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 small flower images from the Blossoms In Bloom stamp set in Highland Heather Ink on the envelope front and flap.  I stamped the flower centers in Daffodil Delight Ink.

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

Stampin’ Up! Sounds of The Season

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends.  How has everyone’s week started off?  Today is the first day in months that I am home alone.  My husband had to go into the office, my son is at work and my daughter is house sitting at my nieces.  It’s just me and my dog for the day.  I can have some peace and quiet.  I love being in the house alone in silence.  I am so looking forward to just doing my own thing today without being interrupted.

For today I played with a new set to me and made you a Christmas card.  Here’s my card for today.

My colors are from ‘Just Us Girls’ color challenge # 549.  As soon as I saw their colors I thought they would make a beautiful Christmas card. Here are their colors.

My design is from Mojo Monday Sketch #543.  Here is their sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of the returning Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer Series Paper to a Merry Merlot card front using Stampin’ Seal.  I cut a panel of Crumb Cake cardstock using my Stitched Rectangle Dies.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Perfectly Plaid Photopolymer Stamp Set on the top of the rectangle panel in Merry Merlot Ink and adhered it to the card front between the 2 panels using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I embossed another panel of Crumb Cake cardstock using my Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it near the bottom of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I cut 3 bells out of a Gold Foil Sheet using the Sounds of the Season Dies.  I cut the boughs from the Sounds of the Season Dies out of a panel of Pretty Peacock cardstock along with just the tops of the 2 bells with the holly leaves.  I cut the tops of the 2 bells with the holly leaves out of a panel of Merry Merlot cardstock also.  I wanted the holly from the Pretty Peacock panel and the berries from the Merry Merlot panel.  I inserted the holly and berries into the gold bells keeping them in place with Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back of the bells.  I adhered the center bell pieces which I had cut from  the Merry Merlot and Pretty Peacock card stock, in the center of the bells using a tiny drop of Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I cut the largest circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies out of a panel of Shimmery White cardstock.  I attached a piece of the gold trim from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack, around the top of the bells.  I adhered the bells to the Shimmery White stitched circle using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the Pretty Peacock pine boughs to the top of the circle using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered the gold trim to the back of the circle using Stampin’ Seal.  I tied a small bow using the Old Olive/Pretty Peacock 3/8″ Reversible Ribbon and adhered it to the top of the circle using Glue Dots.  I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the card front to a Crumb Cake card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Cherish The Season Cling Stamp Set to the center of a Very Vanilla panel using Merry Merlot Ink.  I stamped the pine boughs from the Cherish the Season stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink on the top of the panel.  I stamped the smallest bell from the Cherish the Season stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink on the boughs.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Pretty Peacock mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Crumb Cake card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I stamped the pine boughs from the Cherish the Season stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink on the front of the envelope.  I stamped the smallest bell from Cherish the Season stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink on the boughs.  I adhered a panel of Brightly Gleaming Specialty 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! Nothing’s Better Than Coffee

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s weekend?  I worked Saturday, but I had Sunday off.  It was a rainy cool day here.  It was almost like a touch of fall sneaking in.

For today I played around with one of the sets I just love from the new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.  I’m not really a coffee drinker, but I know a lot of people that are.  Here’s my card for today.

My colors are from Color Throwdown challenge #606.  Here are their colors.

My design is from Crazy 4 Challenges #548.  Here is their sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of In Good Taste Designer Series Paper to a Crumb Cake mat using Stampin’ Seal.  I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Nothing’s Better Than Cling Stamp Set in Crumb Cake Ink on the top of the panel in Crumb Cake Ink.  I cut the ‘coffee’ out of a small panel of Crumb Cake cardstock, which I adhered to a Foam Adhesive Sheet, using my Love You More Than Dies.  I adhered the sentiment between the 2 stamped sentiments.

I stamped 3 coffee cups from the Nothing’s Better Than stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I colored the images in using my Crumb Cake, Petal Pink and Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the images out using my Love You More Than Dies.  I stamped the steam image from the Nothing’s Better Than stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink on the bottom of the panel.  I adhered the 1st coffee cup using Glue Dots.  I adhered the other 2 coffee cups using Stampin’ Dimensionals, over lapping them a little.

I adhered the card front to a Crumb Cake card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Clear Wonderful Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Nothing’s Better Than stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped 3 coffee cups from the Nothing’s Better Than stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink on the bottom of the panel.  I stamped the steam image above the coffee cups in Crumb Cake Ink.  I colored the images in using my Crumb Cake, Petal Pink and Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Petal Pink mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Crumb Cake card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card, I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped 3 of the coffee cups from the Nothing’s Better Than stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink on the bottom of the envelope front.  I stamped the steam image from the Nothing’s Better Than stamp set above each cup.  I colored the images in using my Crumb Cake, Petal Pink and Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of In Good Taste DSP to the envelope flap.

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

Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Greetings CAS Sympathy

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends.  How is everyone’s weekend going?  We have a very rainy day here, great day to craft of just get inside things done. Temperatures here in NJ are dropping a bit, which I’m kind of happy about since we don’t have A/C.  We’re only supposed to be in the 80’s for the next week, YAY!!!  My daughter is heading over to my nieces today to animal and house sit for the week, I have to admit I’m going to be a little lost here without her.

I have a clean and simple card for you today using mainly Designer Series Paper.  Here’s my card for today.

My colors are from Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge #345.  I chose to use mostly Bumblebee with a touch of the Magenta Madness and Coastal Cabana.  Here are their colors.

My design is from Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #448.  Here is their sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of Flowers For Every Season 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a panel of Bumblebee cardstock using Stampin’ Seal.  I cut the panel of a diagonal using my Paper Trimmer.  I moved the cut line to the 1/2″ mark and cut again.

I adhered the cut panels to a Bumblebee card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a strip of Magenta Madness 1/4″ 2020-2022 In-Color Ribbon between the panels on the card base using Stampin’ Seal.  On a thin strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Greetings Cling Stamp Set in Cinnamon Cider Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using my Classic Label Punch.

I adhered the sentiment to the ribbon using Glue Dots.  I added a few Coastal Cabana Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Path of Petals Photopolymer Stamp Set in Cinnamon Cider Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I adhered a strip of Flowers for Every Season DSP to the bottom of the panel using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Bumblebee mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Bumblebee card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope keeping it very simple.  I adhered a panel of Flowers for Every Season DSP to the front of the envelope and the envelope flap.

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