Stampin’ Up! Go To Greetings

Good Monday morning my stamping friends welcome to another work week. How was everyone’s weekend? Did anyone do anything fun? After work yesterday, my neighbor was having an 80th birthday party for her husband, so I stopped over for a bit before going home to make pizza.

For today’s card, I wanted to use some Sale-a-bration items since we are getting close to the end. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Go To Greetings 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Go To Greetings Cling Stamp Set along with the Stampin’ Up! Sale-a-bration Wonderful World Bundle for my card today.

Stampin' Up! Go To Greetings 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by embossing a Basic White card front using the Twigs & Sprigs Embossing Folder. I adhered the embossed panel to an Orchid Oasis mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the layered panel to a Basic White Thick card base.

Stampin' Up! Go To Greetings 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

I adhered a panel of Wonderful World DSP to an Orchid Oasis mat. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Go To Greetings 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Go To Greetings stamp set in Orchid Oasis Ink on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to an Orchid Oasis mat. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I fussy cut one of the larger flower images from the Wonderful World DSP using my Paper Snips. I adhered the flower to the sentiment panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few 2022-2024 In-Color Matte Decorative Dots to the card front.

Stampin' Up! Go To Greetings 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from Go To Greetings stamp set in Orchid Oasis Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the flower image from the Wonderful World stamp set on the bottom of the panel. I colored the stamp using the marker to stamp technique using my Orchid Oasis and Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Write Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to an Orchid Oasis mat and then to the inside of the Basic White Thick card base.

Stampin' Up! Go To Greetings 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the flower image from Wonderful World stamp set on the envelope front coloring it the same as the inside of the card. I adhered a panel of Wonderful World DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin' Up! Go To Greetings 7 creativestampingdesigns.com

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Don’t forget this Wonderful World Bundle will only be available until August 31 or while supplies last. This is a free Sale-a-bration item available with a qualifying order of $100.00. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Ringed With Nature Layered Anniversary

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends and welcome to the weekend. Does anyone have any fun plans? I have off today, and we have a couple visitors coming over to meet Coraline. My plans other than that is to hopefully get to my card table for a bit.

My card today I made while I was virtually attending my Open Stamp Night with my team members. Every month we have an open stamp night where we can get together virtually and stamp or just chat with each other. It’s always a lot of fun getting together from all over the United States. We have members that live on the east coast, west coast and center US. Since everyone lives all over, this is the best way we could get together every month. I’d love for you to join in with us, it’s a lot of fun. Interested? Ask me how. Here’s today’s card.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Ringed With Nature Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Rings of Love Sale-a-bration Designer Series Paper for my card today.

Stampin’ Up! Amazing Phrasing CAS

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. We’re halfway through the week and on our way to the weekend. I hope you are all having a great week. By the time you read this I will already be at work. I had to go in early today to get done what I have to. My husband, daughter and I will be catching the 11am train to New York City to go see a play. The play is at 2pm which means, I will not be going live today on my Facebook page. Last week when I said I’d be back this week, I completely forgot about the play. I will plan on being back next Wednesday at 4pm. If I’m able to go live another day, I’ll let you know on my Facebook page.

Today’s card is a clean and simple one using only Stamps, Ink and Paper. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Amazing Phrasing CAS 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Sale-a-bration Amazing Phrasing Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Stampin’ Up! Go To Greetings Cling Stamp Set and the Artistic Mix Decorative Masks for my card today.

I played along with Just Us Girls Trend Week Challenge #645, Use A Stencil.

My colors are from the Cupcake Inspiration Color Challenge #550.

Stampin' Up! Amazing Phrasing CAS 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by placing the Artistic Mix Decorative Mask over a Basic White card front. I adhered a strip of Post-It Tape through the middle of the mask and panel. Using my Blending Brush, I added Blushing Bride Ink on the top and bottom of the tape.

Stampin' Up! Amazing Phrasing CAS 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

I stamped the sentiments from the Amazing Phrasing stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink in the un-inked area.

Stampin' Up! Amazing Phrasing CAS 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

I adhered the stenciled card front to a Smoky Slate mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to a Blushing Bride card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Amazing Phrasing CAS 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside, I used my Artistic Mix Mask and added Blushing Bride Ink with my Blending Brush on the top of a Basic White panel. I stamped the sentiment from the Go To Greetings stamp set in smoky Slate Ink below the stenciling. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Smoky Slate mat and then to the inside of the Blushing Bride card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. Using the Artistic Mix Mask, I used my Blending Brush and added Blushing Bride Ink to the bottom front of the envelope and the envelope flap. I stamped the sentiment from the Amazing Phrasing stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink on the envelope front.

Stampin’ Up! Ringed With Nature for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. I hope everyone is doing well today. If you are hopping over from Akiko’s blog, thank you for stopping by. This week we have a Sketch Challenge. Here is my card using this week’s Sketch.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Ringed With Nature Bundle along with the Sale-a-bration Rings of Love Designer Series Paper for my card today.

This is this week’s sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of Rings of Love DSP to an Evening Evergreen card bases. I embossed a panel of Vellum paper using the Leaf Fall 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to the card front. On a strip of Parakeet Party cardstock, I stamped the leaf image from the Stampin’ Up! Ringed With Nature Photopolymer Stamp Set in Parakeet Party Ink. I adhered the strip to the card front on the Vellum panel.

Using the tree Rings Dies and Tree Rings Hybrid Embossing Folder, I cut a panel of Crumb Cake cardstock. I took the largest tree ring die and brushed Soft Suede Ink around the edge using my Spong Dauber. I adhered the die to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. On a strip of Evening Evergreen cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Ringed With Nature stamp set in Versamark Ink. I sprinkled it with my White Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I cut the sentiment out using the smallest die from the Stitched Rectangle Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut 2 of the thinner leaf dies from the Tree Rings Dies from a panel of Parakeet Party cardstock, I cut one of the larger leaf dies from a panel of Evening Evergreen cardstock. I adhered the leaf dies just under the sentiment using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I colored the berries on one of the sprig Textural Elements using my Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the sprig on top of the leaves just under the sentiment using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the tree ring image from the Ringed With Nature stamp set in Soft Suede Ink, stamping off twice on scrap paper, on a Basic White panel. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Happiness Abounds Photopolymer Stamp Set in Evening Evergreen Ink over the tree rings. I stamped the heart image from the Ringed With Nature stamp set in Poppy Parade Ink on top of the sentiment. I stamped the leaf image from the Ringed With Nature stamp set in Parakeet Party Ink on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Soft Suede mat and then to the inside of the Evening Evergreen card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the tree ring image from the Ringed With Nature stamp set in soft Suede Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper, on the envelope front. I stamped the heart image from the Ringed With Nature stamp set in Poppy Parade Ink on top of the tree ring image. I stamped the leaf image in Parakeet Party next to the tree ring. I adhered a panel of Rings of Love DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Hippest Hippos for Amy’s Inkin Krew Team Blog Hop

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends. Welcome to Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop. It’s the 2nd Tuesday of the month so that means Blog Hop Day!! If you are starting with me, be sure to hop around to see everyone’s handsome projects. If you’ve hopped over from Amy’s blog, welcome to my blog and thank you for stopping by. The theme this month is “Celebrate Summer”.  We can interpret this however we want.  Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Sale-a-bration Hippest Hippos Cling Stamp Set along with the Sale-a-bration Hippo Dies for my card today.

I started by stamping the sentiment from the Hippest Hippos stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink on the top of a Basic White panel. I embossed a Basic White card front using the Into the Clouds Embossing Folder. I lightly brushed the panel using my Blending Brush and Pool Party Ink, to give it a little color. On a strip of Sahara Sand cardstock, I stamped the sand image from the Stampin’ Up! Friends Are Like Seashells Photopolymer Stamp Set in Sahara Sand Ink. I tore the top of the strip of card stock all the way across. I adhered the ‘sand’ image to the bottom of the card front using a small amount of Multipurpose Liquid Glue just along the bottom edge. I cut 3 strips of the Celebrate Everything Host Designer Series Paper. Using my Paper Snips, I cut 2 of the strips along the ‘wave’ edge. I adhered the 3 strips together using Glue Dots. I adhered the layered waves to the card front just under the ‘sand’ strip using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I trimmed the edges using my Paper Snips.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the 2 hippo images from the Hippest Hippos stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the images in using my Flirty Flamingo, Polished Pink and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the images out using my Hippo Dies. Using the Hippo Dies, I cut the goggles and snorkel from a panel of Sweet Sorbet cardstock, I cut the sunglasses and umbrella from a panel of Polished Pink and Basic Black cardstock. I cut the water drops from a panel of Pool Party cardstock. I adhered the goggles and snorkel to the one hippo and the sunglasses to the ballerina hippo using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered the hippos and umbrella to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the water drops to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the card front to a Pool Party card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Hippest Hippos stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the hippo image from the Hippest Hippos stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom of the panel. I colored the image using my Flirty Flamingo, Parakeet Party, Polished Pink and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Sahara Sand mat and then to the inside of the Pool Party card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the hippo image from the Hippest Hippos stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink and colored it using my Flirty Flamingo, Parakeet Party, Polished Pink and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of Celebrate Everything DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Fond of Autumn for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. I hope everyone is doing well today. If you are hopping over from Karen Finkel’s blog, thank you for stopping by. This week we have a Sketch Challenge. Here is my card using this week’s Sketch.

I used the new Stampin’ Up! Fond of Autumn Bundle along with the Sale-a-bration Ring of Love Designer Series Paper for my card today.

This is our sketch for this week.

I started by embossing a Mint Macaron card front using the Elegant Eucalyptus 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the embossed panel to a Mint Macaron card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered a panel of Rings of Love DSP to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the top of the large floral image from the Fond of Autumn stamp set twice in Tuxedo Black Ink. I stamped the small flower from the Fond of Autumn stamp set twice on the Basic White panel in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the images in using my Calypso Coral, Mint Macaron, Pale papaya and Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the images out using my Autumn Bouquet Dies. I adhered the larger flower images to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the Basic White panel, I stamped the banner from the Fond of Autumn stamp set in Night of Navy Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper. I stamped the sentiment from the Fond of Autumn stamp set in Night of Navy Ink inside the banner. I cut the banner out using the Autumn Bouquet Dies. I adhered the banner between the flower images using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the 2 smaller flowers to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Solid Faceted Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Fond of Autumn stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the small flower image from the Fond of Autumn stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on either side of the sentiment. I colored the flowers using my Calypso Coral, Pale Papaya and Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Night of Navy mat and then to the inside of the Mint Macron card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the small flower image from the Fond of Autumn stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and colored it the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of Ring of Love DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Wonderful World Sneak Peek Fun Fold Video Tutorial

Good Friday morning my stamping friends welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Are you ready for the weekend? I hope you are making some fun plans. I have off from both jobs this weekend. I was originally scheduled for Saturday, but one of my cashiers asked if she could work since she needed next weekend off, and I requested Sunday off since it’s my son’s birthday and Father’s Day.

Today’s card I made on my Facebook Live video on Wednesday. If you were able to join me or watched the replay, thank you. If you’d like to watch my video and stamp along, the measurements are below along with the links to my Facebook page and my YouTube channel. I actually have 2 versions of the card to show you. Here are my cards for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Sale-a-bration Wonderful World Bundle (available July 1st) along with the Stampin’ Up! Go To Greetings Cling Stamp Set for my cards today.

I started by cutting the Rich Razzleberry card base front. I lined up the 8 1/2″ edge at the 3″ mark on my Paper Trimmer. I cut from the 3″ mark to the 3/4″ mark. I turned the paper so the 5 1/2″ side was lined up at the 3″ mark on my Paper Trimmer. I cut from the 4 3/4″ mark to the 2 1/2″ mark. Gently push the cut panel towards the inside of the card so that the bottom corner becomes the top corner.

I cut a panel of the Wonderful World DSP (Sale-a-bration item available July 1st). Line up the 5 3/8″ side at the 2 15/16″ mark on the Paper Trimmer and cut from top down to the 2 1/2″ mark. Turn paper so the 4 1/8″ side is lined up on the Paper Trimmer at the 2 15/16″ mark and cut from the 3″ mark down. Adhered the Wonderful World DSP to the front of the card base lining the cut edge up with the cut edge of the card base. You will have to trim the small corners with Paper Snips that fold down under the flipped portion of the card.

Using the largest square from the Stylish Shapes Dies, cut a panel of Mossy Meadow cardstock. Stamp the small leaf image from the Stampin’ Up! Wonderful World Cling Stamp Set (available July 1st from Sale-a-bration), in Mossy Meadow Ink multiple times on the Mossy Meadow panel. Adhere the die cut square to the flipped corner using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the rose image from the Wonderful World stamp set using the Marker to stamp technique. I colored the rose using my Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Write Marker and the stem using my Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Write Marker. Huff on the stamp a couple times and stamp on the Basic White panel. I cut the image using the 3rd largest circle from the Stylish Shapes Dies. I adhered the stamped image to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few 2021-2023 In-Color Opal Rounds to the card front.

For this card I stamped the flower image from the Wonderful World stamp set using my Orchid Oasis and Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Write Markers on a panel of Basic White cardstock and cut the image out using the largest square from the Stylish Shapes Dies.

I adhered a panel of Wonderful World DSP to the inside of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I stamped the sentiment from the Go To Greetings stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink on a Basic White panel. I huffed on the already inked stamped to reactivate the ink and stamped the image on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to the inside of the Rich Razzleberry card base making sure it is under the folded panel.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the flower image from the Wonderful World stamp set on the envelope front the same as I did for the card front.

I adhered a panel of the Wonderful World 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. I hope you will CASE this card and please feel free to post it in the comments of my Facebook page under my post. I’d love to see your take on the card. The list of measurements are below if you’d like to stamp along while watching the video. You can watch my video on my Facebook page Here.

You can also view the video on my YouTube channel Here. If you watch this on my YouTube channel, please remember to subscribe so that you will get notified when a new video goes live. Happy Stamping!!

Here are the Designer Series Paper Shares that I am offering from the new Mini Catalog:
