Stampin’ Up! Love & Happiness 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 Finkle’s blog, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we have a Theme Challenge. I decided to make an Anniversary card using our theme.  Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s awesome projects. Here is my card using this week’s Theme.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Love & Happiness Cling Stamp Set along with the Stampin’ Up! Sale-a-bration Friendly Hello Bundle for my card today.

Our theme is LOVE this week.

I started by adhering a panel of Friendly Hello DSP to a Basic Gray card base. I adhered 2 more panels of the Friendly Hello DSP to Basic Gray mats using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the longer panel to the card front first, then the shorter panel on top using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a Heart & Home Doily I masked off the circle by cutting a circle in the center of a Post-It Note and placing it over the doily. I stamped the bird image from the from the Friendly Hello stamp set in Versamark Ink on the doily. I removed the mask and immediately sprinkled it with my White Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I adhered the doily to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Love & Happiness stamp set in Basic Gray Ink. I stamped the tiny berry image from the Friendly Hello stamp set in Petal Pink Ink around the sentiment. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Love & Happiness stamp set in Basic Gray Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the flower image from the Friendly Hello stamp set in Petal Pink Ink on the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Petal Pink mat and then to the inside of the Basic Gray card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic Whtie Medium Envelope. I stamped the flower image from the Friendly Hello stamp set in Petal Pink Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the Friendly Hello 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! Special Moments CAS

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. We’re halfway through the week and on the downhill to the weekend and the end of the month.

I have a CAS card for you today using Sale-a-bration 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 these items are Sale-a-bration items and can be earned free with a qualifying order.

My design is from The Paper Players Sketch Challenge #575.

I started by embossing a panel of Pear Pizzazz cardstock using the Gingham Embossing Folder. I adhered a panel of the Daffodil Afternoon DSP to the embossed panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I wrapped a piece of the Blushing Bride 3/8″ Frayed Grosgrain Ribbon around the layered panel and tied a bow. I adhered the card front to a Pear Pizzazz card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Special Moments stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink. I cut the sentiment out using my Ornate Frames Dies and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a Brushed Brass Butterfly to the sentiment.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Special Moments stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on a Basic Whtie panel. I adhered a strip of the Daffodil Afternoon DSP to the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Pear Pizzazz mat and then to the inside of the Pear Pizzazz card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic Whtie Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of the Daffodil Afternoon DSP on the envelope front and a panel on the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Calming Camellia Whitewashed CAS

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends. I hope you week has started out productive. We’re back to a full week again, no holidays for a bit.

Today’s card one of my team members Mary Deatherage made on a Facebook live video on Saturday. I forgot how much I like this technique and haven’t done it in a while. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Calming Camellia Cling Stamp Set for my card today. You can earn this set free by hosting a qualifying party or placing a qualifying order. I’d be happy to set up a host code for you and your friends. Interested? Ask me how. Contact me at creativestampingdesigns@gmail.com.

I played along with Double “D” Challenge ‘Blue & White’

I also played along with Aud Sentiments Challenge #290 ‘Anything Goes + A Sentiment

I started by stamping the large floral image from the Calming Camellia stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on a Misty Moonlight card front. I stamped the swirl image from the Calming Camellia stamp set in Night of Navy Ink below the floral image where I planned on putting the sentiment.

Using my Blender Pen, I added White Craft Ink just to the flower image making sure not to color the leaves. I adhered the card front to a Misty Moonlight card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Calming Camellia stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink and fussy cut it using my Paper Snips. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Calming Camellia stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the large floral image from the Calming Camellia stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink, stamping off on scrap paper twice, over 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 large floral image from the Calming Camellia stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink on the envelope front and the swirl image on 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! Paradise Palms Special Moments CAS

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends. Hope your week has started out productive.

I was so happy with my card for today and surprisingly I only used Stamps, Ink and Paper. Back to the basics. I just love playing with the Blending Brushes and mixing colors. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Paradise Palms Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Stampin’ Up! Sale-a-bration Special Moments Photopolymer Stamp Set for my card today.

I started with a Basic White card front. I used Post-It Note Tape and taped off the sides of the panel to make a border. Starting at the bottom using my Blending Brushes I started adding color. I used Daffodil Delight, Mango Melody, Flirty Flamingo, Highland Heather and Misty Moonlight Inks, blending them all as I moved up the panel.

Once I had the colors the way I wanted them I started stamping the palm tree images and the grass image from the Paradise Palms stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I removed the tape from the 4 sides and adhered the card front to a Basic Black mat and then to a Basic White Thick card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Special Moments stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I adhered the sentiment to a Basic Black mat and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Paradise Palms stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the palm tree and grass images from the Paradise Palm stamp set on the bottom of the panel in Tuxedo Black Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Basic Black mat and then to the inside of the Basic White Thick card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic Whtie Medium Envelope. I stamped the grass and palm tree images from the Paradise Palms stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the Sunshine & Rainbows Sale-a-bration Designer Series Paper to the envelope flap.

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

Stampin’ Up! Driving By Birthday

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone’s weekend going? I worked yesterday and I’m planning on staying in today. It’s cold here in NJ. I don’t mind it a little cold, but not when it makes my bones cold lol.

I played with one of the Sale-a-bration sets for my card today. It’s a set that I looked at when I first got the brochure and said “what am I going to do with that”. After playing a little with it, I like it, I have many other ideas I just have to get on a card now. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Driving By Cling Stamp Set along with the Brights 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my card today.

My colors were inspired by the Color Throwdown Challenge #675.

I started by adhering Granny Apple Green and Pacific Point panels of the Brights DSP to a Smoky Slate card base. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the car image from the Driving By stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image in using my Light Basic Black, Daffodil Delight and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers. I colored the balloons in using my Wink of Stella brush and my Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green and Pacific Point stamp pads.

I stamped the sentiment from the Driving By stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink above the card image. I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Nut About Squirrels Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink behind the card.

I adhered the Basic White panel to a Smoky Slate mat and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Driving By stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the car image from the Driving By stamp set on the bottom of the panel in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image in using my Basic Black, Granny Apple Green and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers. I colored the balloons the same as I did for the card front. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Smoky Slate mat and then to the inside of the Smoky Slate card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of the Brights DSP to the envelope front and a panel to the envelope flap. I stamped just the balloons from the Driving By stamp set up the one side of the envelope and colored them the same as I did on the card.

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

Stampin’ Up! Happy Hedgehogs Fun Fold with Video Tutorial

Good Friday morning my stamping friends. Welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Does anyone have plans for the weekend? I’ll be working all day Saturday and have Sunday off.

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. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Happy Hedgehogs Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Sunshine & Rainbows 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my card today. This DSP is a FREE Sale-a-bration item with a qualifying $50.

I started by adhering 2 panels of the Sunshine & Rainbows DSP to Bermuda Bay Mats. I adhered the layered panels to the Pool Party card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment, mushroom, bird & hedgehog images from the Happy Hedgehogs stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the images in using my Crumb Cake, Flirty Flamingo, Granny Apple Green, Petal Pink, So Saffron & Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers and my Mango Melody Stampin’ Write Marker. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Bermuda Bay mat and then to the front of the small Pool Party card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I added a few of the Brushed Brass Butterflies to the artwork.

On another panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment, butterfly and hedgehog images from the Happy Hedgehogs stamp set in Tuxedo Balck Ink. I colored the images in using my Bermuda Bay, Crumb Cake, Petal Pink, Pool Party and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Bermuda Bay mat and then to the inside of the small Pool Party card base. I wrapped a piece of Pool Party 3/8″ Sheer Ribbon around the large card base and tied a bow. I adhered the small card base to the small right panel of the large card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the tree image from the Happy Hedgehogs stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I colored the image in using my Flirty Flamingo, Granny Apple Green and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic Whtie panel to a Bermuda Bay mat and then to the inside of the Pool Party card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the 2 hedgehog images from the Happy Hedgehogs stamp set on the envelope front and colored them using my Crumb Cake, Petal Pink and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of Sunshine & Rainbows DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Blessings of Home Birthday

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. We’re halfway through the week already and almost halfway through the month. Another month flying by.

I have a quick card for you today. When I saw the colors for this challenge, I knew exactly what I wanted to do. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Blessings of Home Cling Stamp Set along with the Stampin’ Up! Calming Camellia Cling Sale-a-bration Host Stamp Set and the Heart & Home Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I joined in with Seize the Birthday color Challenge #229.

I started by adhering a panel of the Heart & Home DSP to a Basic Gray card base.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the large floral image from the Blessings of Home stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink. I colored just the larger flowers in using my Balmy Blue Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Balmy Blue mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Balmy Blue cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Calming Camellia stamp set in Versamark Ink. I immediately sprinkled it with my Silver Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I adhered a piece of Silver Simply Elegant Trim to the card front using Stampin’ Seal and then the sentiment over the trim using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Rhinestones Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Calming Camellia stamp set in Basic Gray Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the smaller floral image from the Blessings of Home stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink on the bottom of the panel. I colored just the larger flower using my Balmy Blue Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Balmy Blue mat and then to the inside if the Basic Gray card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the smaller floral image from the Blessings of Home stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink on the envelope front and colored it using my Balmy Blue Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of the Heart & Home DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Calming Camellia Biggest Wish

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend? I actually impressed myself yesterday. Since my husband had started undecorating and packing up Christmas while I was at work on Saturday, I finished most of it Saturday night. Sunday morning, I got up and finished packing up anything else I had to do. By 10:30am I was completely finished packing up Christmas, had everything back in my attic and I rearranged my furniture and vacuumed. I had the rest of the day for me, well kind of.

Today I have a mix of Sale-a-bration, 2021-2022 Annual Catalog and January-June 2022 Mini Catalog for you. I was using a little of everything to make a CAS card. Here’s my card for today.

I used the gorgeous Stampin’ Up! Calming Camellia Cling Stamp Set along with the Stampin’ Up! Biggest Wish Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Artfully Composed Designer Series Paper for my card today.

My Theme is from the Inspire. Create. Birthday Challenge #107.

My colors are from the Paper Players Challenge #573. I used White as my neutral color.

My design is from Sunday Stamps Challenge #273.

I started by adhering a panel of the Artfully Composed DSP to a Pale Papaya card base. Using my Stamparatus, I stamped the large sentiment from the Biggest Wish stamp set in Calypso Coral Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the 1st 2 sentiments then moved the sentiment to the bottom and stamped the bottom 2.

I stamped the large floral image and the swirl image from the Calming Camellia stamp set in Pale Papaya Ink over the sentiments. I cut the panel in half at 2 3/8″. I adhered both panels to a Just Jade mat using Stampin’ Seal. I stamped the script sentiment from the Biggest Wish stamp set in Just Jade Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock and fussy cut it using my Paper Snips.

I adhered the script sentiment using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Calming Camellia stamp set in Just Jade Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the large floral image from the Calming Camellia stamp set in Pale Papaya Ink on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic Whtie panel to a Just Jade mat and then to the inside of the Pale Papaya card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the large floral image from the Calming Camellia stamp set on the envelope front in Pale Papaya Ink. I stamped the sentiment from the Calming Camellia stamp set in Just Jade Ink over the image. I adhered a panel of Artfully Composed 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. Just a reminder that today is the last day to take advantage of my Double Creative Stamping Designs Rewards. It ends tonight at 11:00pm ET. If you haven’t gotten your order in yet, there’s still time. This is a great time to get those rewards built up. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Catching Butterflies

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends. Welcome to the weekend. Hope you have something fun planned.

Before I get started on my card today, I want to remind you about my Double Creative Stamping Designs Rewards going on right now. You can only qualify for my double rewards until Monday January 10th at 11:00pm ET. Click Here to see my Rewards program. Today I used all Sale-a-bration items for my card. I love getting free products. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Catching Butterflies Cling Stamp Set along with the Simply Marbleous Designer Series Paper and the Sunshine & Rainbows Designer Series Paper for my card today. All these items are Sale-a-bration items and can be earned FREE with a qualifying order.

I started by stamping the girl and butterfly images from the Catching Butterflies stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I cut the image our using my Encircled in Beauty Dies. I colored the image in using my Bermuda Bay, Bronze, Ivory, Pool Party and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the grass image below the girl’s foot in Soft Succulent Ink. As much as I dislike fussy cutting, I love Paper Piecing. On a small panel of Sunshine & Rainbow DSP I stamped the dress image of the girl in Tuxedo Black Ink and fussy cut it using my Paper Snips. I adhered it to the girl image using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped the collage of butterflies from the Catching Butterflies stamp set on a panel of Simply Marbleous DSP in Tuxedo Black Ink. I adhered the die cut girl image to the panel of DSP letting it hang over the edge a bit. I trimmed the die cut even with the DSP using my Paper Trimmer. I adhered the layered panel to a Basic Black mat using Stampin’ Seal.

On a strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Catching Butterflies stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I adhered a piece of Pool Party 3/8″ Sheer Ribbon to the card front. I adhered the sentiment over the ribbon using Glue Dots. I adhered the layered card front to a Basic White Thick card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Catching Butterflies stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the butterfly images from the Catching Butterflies stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the panel around the sentiment. I adhered a strip of the Simply Marbleous DSP to the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic Whtie panel to a Basic Black mat and then to the inside of the Basic White Thick card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the butterfly image from the Catching Butterflies stamp set in Tuxedo Black on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of Simply Marbleous 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! Friendly Hello 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 Sudano’s blog, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we have a Sketch Challenge and it’s my favorite kind!!! 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 beautiful projects. Here is my card using this week’s Sketch.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Sale-a-bration Friendly Hello Bundle for my card today.

Here is our sketch for this week.

I started by adhering a panel of the Friendly Hello Designer Series Paper to a Fresh Freesia card base.

I cut another panel of the Friendly Hello DSP using the 4th largest rectangle from the Stitched Rectangle Dies. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Friendly Hello Photopolymer Stamp Set in Shaded Spruce Ink. I cut the sentiment out using the 2nd largest long Stitched Rectangle Die. I adhered the sentiment to a Fresh Freesia mat using Stampin’ Seal.

I adhered the Silver Trim from the Simply Elegant Trim to the panel of DSP using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered sentiment over the trim using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and added a few Iridescent Rhinestones Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Celebrating You Cling Stamp Set in Shaded Spruce Ink on a Basic White panel. I adhered 2 strips of the Friendly Hello DSP to either side of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Fresh Freesia mat and then to the inside of the Fresh Freesia card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the small flower from the Friendly Hello stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink on the bottom front of the envelope. I adhered a panel of the Friendly Hello 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.
