Stampin’ Up! Scripty Happy Birthday To You

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends.  How has everyone’s week started off?  Are you all still working from home and keeping Social Distancing?  I have to work today, but I’m all by myself in the office so I feel pretty safe.  Can you believe it’s the last day of March already?  I feel like I lost a whole month.

I made a Wedding/Anniversary/Birthday card for you today.  I left the sentiment wide open so I can use it for anything I need.  Here’s today’s card.

I played along with Paper Craft Crew Challenge #375.  They had a Horizontal Sketch Challenge this week.  Here is their sketch.

I also joined in with The Paper Players Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge #484.  Here is their board.  I covered 3 different directions starting at the top left corner.

I started by embossing a Soft Seafoam card front using the Scripty 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the card front to a Soft Seafoam card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I cut a panel of Parisian Blossoms Specialty Designer Series Paper using the Stitched So Sweetly Die and adhered it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Shimmery White cardstock I stamped the cake image from the Stampin’ Up! Happy Birthday To You Cling Stamp Set, which is a Sale-A-Bration item, in Smoky Slate Ink.  I colored the image in using my Petal Pink, Purple Posy, Light Smoky Slate and Soft Seafoam Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I fussy cut the image out using my Paper Snips.  I adhered the cake image to the die cut DSP using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Shimmery White cardstock I stamped the cake image from the Happy Birthday To You stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink making sure to get mainly the one flower.  I colored the flower in using my Petal Pink and Soft Seafoam Stampin’ Blends Markers and fussy cut it using my Paper Snips.  I adhered a piece of Petal Pink 1/4″ Metallic Edge Ribbon to the card front using Glue Dots.  I adhered the fussy cut flower 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 Stampin’ Up! Forever Blossoms Cling Stamp Set in Smoky Slate Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the cake image from the Happy Birthday To You stamp set in Soft Seafoam Ink, stamping off once, over the sentiment.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Soft Seafoam mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Soft Seafoam card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the cake image from the Happy Birthday To You stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink on the envelope front.  I colored the image in using my Petal Pink, Purple Posy and Soft Seafoam Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of the Parisian Blossoms 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. Don’t forget, today’s the last day to order Coordination Products and to earn free Sale-A-Bration items.  If there is something you wanted, you need to get your order in now.   Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Positive Thoughts

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Did you get a lot of things done that you’ve been putting off?

For today’s card I used a couple items from Sale-A-Bration that will be gone after tomorrow.  Here’s my card for today.

My design is from Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge #335.  Here is their sketch.

I started by embossing a Smoky Slate card front using the Stone 3D Embossing Folder.  This folder comes as a bundle with the Power of Hope stamp set and is available as a Sale-A-Bration item with a qualifying order.  I adhered a panel of Night of Navy cardstock to the edge of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I colored a small panel of the Sale-A-Bration Flowering Foils Specialty Designer Series Paper using my Light Night of Navy, Old Olive and Real Red Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut a flower out using the 2nd largest circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I adhered the artwork to the embossed card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, letting it over hang a little and trimmed off the edge using my Paper Snips.  Using the next size smaller circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies, I cut a panel of Whisper White cardstock and embossed it using the Layering Leaves 3D Embossing Folder.  I added some Silver Metallic Thread to the back of the stitched circle and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I stamped the butterfly image from the Stampin’ Up! Positive Thoughts Cling Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock and colored it in using my Light Daffodil Delight and Light Real Red Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the butterfly image out using the Nature Thoughts Dies, I also cut the tiny butterfly out from the Nature Thoughts Dies from a Silver Foil Sheet.  I adhered the butterfly to the embossed circle using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the top portion of the sentiment from the Positive Thoughts stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on a strip of Whisper White cardstock.  I made the sentiment into a banner using my Paper Snips and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and a Glue Dot.  I adhered the silver foil butterfly below the sentiment using Multipurpose Liquid  Glue.  I adhered the card front to a Night of Navy card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the bottom portion of the sentiment from the Positive Thoughts stamp set in Night of Navy Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the decorative image from the Positive Thoughts stamp set on the top and bottom of the panel in Night of Navy Ink.  I adhered 2 strips of the Flowering Foils Specialty DSP to either side of the panel using Snail.  I adhered 2 foil butterflies by the sentiment using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Smoky Slate mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Night of Navy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope .  I stamped the butterfly image from the Positive Thoughts stamp set across the bottom of the envelope front in Night of Navy Ink.  I adhered a panel of the Flowering Foils Specialty DSP to the envelope flap which I had colored using my Light Night of Navy, Old Olive and Real Red Stampin’ Blends Markers.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Don’t forget, tomorrow is the last day to earn FREE Sale-A-Bration items.  If there is anything you wanted, don’t wait any longer because they will be gone tomorrow night. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Flowering Ornate Thank You for Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. How is everyone doing today? Hope everyone is staying heathly.  If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by my blog. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects today. This week we had a Color Challenge, here are the colors we got to work with.

Here’s what I came up with for these colors.

My design is from Sunday Stamps Sketch Challenge #226.  Here is their sketch.

I started by coloring a panel of the gorgeous Flowering Foils Specialty Designer Series Paper, which is a Sale-A-Bration item, using my Blackberry Bliss, Old Olive and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the panel to a Copper Foil mat using Snail.

I wrapped a piece of the new Old Olive 1/4″ Ornate Garden Ribbon around the panel and tied a bow.  On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Thanks Photopolymer Stamp Set, (available April 1st), in Blackberry Bliss Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using my Ornate Layers Dies and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Poppy Parade cardstock I stamped the butterfly image from the Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Gala Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I cut the image out using my Butterfly Duet Punch.  I adhered the butterfly to the card front overlapping the sentiment using Stampin’ Dimensionals and a Glue Dot.  I added a few Gilded Gems to the card front and sentiment.  I adhered the card front to a Blackberry Bliss card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Ornate Thanks stamp set in Blackberry Bliss Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I adhered a thin strip of the Flowering Foils Specialty DSP, which I colored using my Blackberry Bliss and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers, to the top of the panel using Snail.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Poppy Parade 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 butterfly image from the Butterfly Gala stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the bottom of the envelope front twice.  I adhered a panel of the Flowering Foils Specialty DSP, which I had colored using my Blackberry Bliss, Old Olive and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends Markers, 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, hop around to see everyone else’s projects. You can hit the next button to hop over to Amy Koenders blog or you can just click on the names below. Happy Hopping!!

Stampin’ Up! Little Ladybug for Fun Fold Friday

Happy Friday the 13th my stamping friends.  I hope you’re not superstitious about the date, I’m not.  How was everyone’s week?  The weekend is here, hope you are all ready for it, I know I am.  I get to work Saturday at the dog bakery.  We’re having a party for the owners dog for her 1st gotcha day.  They are making a big cake and dogs are invited to the party for some yummy cake (owners too).  Sunday  I’m looking forward to attending our quarterly Team Meeting.  It’s always so much fun to get together with fellow team members to enjoy lunch and stamping together.

For today’s card I made a pretty easy fun fold for you using the Sale-A-Bration Host exclusive stamp set.  Take a look.

My colors were inspired by The Paper Players Challenge #481.  Their colors just screamed spring/summer to me.  Here are their colors.

I also joined in with Global Design Project Challenge #231.  Here is their theme.

I started by embossing a small panel of Bermuda Bay cardstock using the Swirls & Curls Embossing Folder.  I adhered the panel to the front of the Z-Fold using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock, I stamped the flower image from the Stampin’ Up! Little Ladybug Cling Host Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I stamped the flying ladybug on the panel in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the images in using my Bermuda Bay, Calypso Coral and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers.  On a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the ladybug image again and just colored in the left wing with my dark Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blends Marker.  I fussy cut the wing and adhered it on top of the stamped ladybug using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I stamped the sentiment from the Little Ladybug stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the top of the panel.  I adhered the artwork to a Bermuda Bay mat using Snail and then to the embossed card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added 3 Rhinestone Basic Jewels which I colored using my dark Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blends Marker.  I added a Rhinestone Basic Jewel which I colored using my dark Bermuda Bay Stampin’ Blends Marker by the sentiment and a Coastal Cabana rhinestone from the Holiday Rhinestones on the other side of the sentiment.

On the inside I adhered a panel of Birthday Bonanza Designer Series Paper to a Bermuda Bay mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Coastal Cabana card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Little Ladybug stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I stamped another one of the ladybug images from the Little Ladybug stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the bottom of the panel.  I colored the image in using my Calypso Coral and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the panel to a Bermuda Bay mat using Snail and then to the inside of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue making sure it was hidden under the card front panel.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the flower image from the Little Ladybug stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped another one of the ladybug images from the Little Ladybug stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink next to the flower.  I colored the images in using my Bermuda Bay, Calypso Coral and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of the Birthday Bonanza 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! Forever Blossoms Happy Easter

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  We’re halfway through the week already.  Hope you are having a productive week.

I have another card from our card class last week that we made.  My card was CASEd from my team leader Amy Koenders.  You can see her card here.  I thought I would change it by using a different color.  Here’s my card.

I started by stamping the large floral image from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Blossoms Cling Stamp Set in Versamark Ink on a panel of Purple Posy cardstock.  I immediately sprinkled it with my White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  Using my Purple Posy and Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Write Markers I added a little color inside the embossed flowers.  I adhered the Purple Posy panel to a Gorgeous Grape mat using Snail.

I adhered a panel of the New Sale-A-Bration item, So Very Vellum Specialty Designer Series Paper which is available free with a qualifying purchase, to a Purple Posy card base using Snail.  I adhered the matted artwork to the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut the sentiment out of a panel of Soft Sea Foam cardstock using my Word Wishes Dies.  I brushed the sentiment using Clear Wink of Stella to give is a little shimmer.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I added a few Pearl Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! A Wish For Everything Cling Stamp Set in Gorgeous Grape Ink.  Using my Purple Posy and Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Write Markers, I colored the large floral image from the Forever Blossoms stamp set and stamped it on the top of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Gorgeous Grape mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Purple Posy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the large floral image from the Forever Blossoms stamp set, which I colored using my Purple Posy and Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Write Markers, on the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of the 2019-2021 In-Colors 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!!

If you are starting with me, be sure to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects. If you’ve hopped over from Karen Finkle’s blog, welcome to my blog and thank you for stopping by. The theme this month is “Spring”. We can interpret this any way that we’d like.

For my card today I combined 2 stamp sets.  One from the 2020 January-June Mini Catalog and the other from the Annual Catalog along with a new Sale-A-Bration item. Here’s my card.

I started by adhering a panel of Soft Sea Foam So Very Vellum Specialty Designer Series Paper to a Soft Sea Foam card base using Snail.  I put the Snail under my artwork so that you couldn’t see the lines.  Using the Cherry Blossoms Dies, I cut all the flowers from a panel of Petal Pink cardstock.  I cut all the leaves from a panel of Soft Sea Foam cardstock.  I cut the branch and flower centers from a panel of Soft Suede cardstock.  I sponged the edges of all the flowers using my Stamping Sponges and Petal Pink Ink.  I sponged all the leaves using my Stamping Sponges and Soft Sea Foam Ink.  I adhered all the leaves to the back of the flowers using Snail.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Easter Promise Cling Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using my Stitched So Sweetly Dies making sure the sentiment was towards the bottom right of the die.

I arranged the branch and the flowers on the top left corner of the die cut sentiment.  I adhered them, once I had them where I wanted them, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, Stampin’ Dimensionals and Glue Dots.  I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Easter Promise stamp set in Soft Suede Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the large floral branch image from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Blossoms Cling Stamp Set, which I colored using my Petal Pink and Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Write Markers, on the top of the panel.  I stamped 2 small flower images from the Forever Blossoms stamp set in Petal Pink Ink on the bottom of the panel and stamped a double leaf image from the Forever Blossoms stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Soft Suede mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Soft Sea Foam card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the large floral branch image from the Forever Blossoms stamp set, which I colored using my Petal Pink and Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Write Markers, on the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of Parisian Blossoms Specialty Designer Series Paper to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Rainbow Thoughtful Blooms

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers. How was everyone’s weekend?  Did anyone do anything fun?  It was a nice sunny weekend here for a change.  Saturday was a little windy and chilly, but Sunday felt like a spring day.  It’s suppose to be even warmer here today, 69 I think.  Spring’s on it’s way.

For today’s card I used a FREE stamp set from Sale-A-Bration and a FREE punch from Sale-A- Bration, with qualifying orders.  I also used 4 of the 5 2018-2020 In-Colors which will be retiring in June.  If you are loving any of these colors, grab them while you still can.  I believe this is the most colors I’ve ever used on one card.   Here’s my card.

I played along with Just Add Ink Challenge #495.  Their colors are Add A Rainbow.  I believe I have a rainbow with this card for sure.

I also played along with Watercooler Wednesday Challenge #261.  Here is their theme.

I started by stamping the large flower image from the Stampin’ Up! Thoughtful Blooms Photopolymer Stamp Set, which is a FREE item with a qualifying purchase from Sale-A-Bration, in Poppy Parade, Grapefruit Grove, Pineapple Punch and Gorgeous Grape Inks on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I cut the rainbow of flowers out using my Small Blooms Punch which is another FREE item with a qualifying purchase from Sale-A- Bration.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the large leafy image from the Thoughtful Blooms stamp set in Call Me Clover Ink across the panel.  I stamped the small leaf image from the Thoughtful Blooms stamp set in Call Me Clover Ink randomly around.  I randomly stamped the medium and small flower images from the Thoughtful Blooms stamp set in Blueberry Bushel, Gorgeous Grape, Grapefruit Grove, Pineapple Punch and Poppy Parade Inks around the leafy image.

I stamped the sentiment from the Thoughtful Blooms stamp set in Blueberry Bushel Ink on the bottom right corner of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Blueberry Bushel mat using Snail and then to a Thick Whisper White card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the large punched flowers to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added Blueberry Bushel Rhinestones from the Noble Peacock Rhinestones to the large flower centers.  I added Pineapple Punch Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots to the medium flower centers.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Band Together Cling Stamp Set in Blueberry Bushel Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the large flower image from the Thoughtful Blooms stamp set in Gorgeous Grape and Poppy Parade Inks on either side of the sentiment.  I stamped the greens and leaf image from the Thoughtful Blooms stamp set in Call Me Clover Ink around the flowers.  I stamped the small dot flower image from the Thoughtful Blooms stamp set in Grapefruit Grove and Pineapple Punch Inks on the greens.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Blueberry Bushel mat using Snail and then 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 large flower image from the Thoughtful Blooms stamp set in Poppy Parade Ink on the bottom front of the envelope.  I stamped the greens and leaves image from the Thoughtful Blooms stamp set around the flower in Call Me Clover Ink.  I stamped the dot flower image from the Thoughtful Blooms stamp set in Gorgeous Grape, Grapefruit Grove and Pineapple Punch Inks on the greens.  I adhered a panel of Poppy Parade Brights 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!!
