Stampin’ Up! Ranunculus Romance Hello for The Card Concepts

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. We’re halfway through the week already and on our way to the weekend. I hope you are starting to make some plans.

It’s time for another inspiration challenge for The Card Concepts. The inspiration photo is Fresh New Year.  Here is my card that was inspired from the challenge photo.

I used the new Stampin’ Up! Ranunculus Romance Bundle along with the Pattern Party Host Designer Series Paper for my Clean & Layered card today. I was inspired by the beautiful roses in the photo along with the colors.

I hope you will take a moment to visit The Card Concepts and join us for our challenge #166.  How are you inspired by this photo?

I started by adhering a panel of the Pattern Party DSP to a Basic White Thick card base.

From a panel of Flirty Flamingo and Petal Pink cardstock, I cut a detailed and solid flower using my Ranunculus Dies. I adhered them together using a tiny amount of Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the flower to the card front.

From a panel of Basic White cardstock I cut the largest circle from my Layering Circles Dies. I stamped the rose image and sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Ranunculus Romance Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I cut the images using my Ranunculus Dies. I colored the rose image in using my Flirty Flamingo and Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends Markers. I embossed the large circle using my Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder. I cut the largest scalloped circle using my Layering Circles Dies from a panel of the Brushed Metallic cardstock. I adhered the embossed circle to the gold circle using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered a piece of the Petal Pink 5/8″ Organdy Striped Ribbon to the circle then the flower over it using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the layered circle to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the sentiment to the bottom of the circle using a Glue Dot and Stampin’ Dimensional. I added a few Iridescent Rhinestones Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Special Moments Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. This set is a Sale-a-bration item and can be earned FREE with a qualifying order. I stamped the rose image from the Ranunculus Romance stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the side of the panel and colored it in using my Flirty Flamingo, Granny Apple Green and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic Whtie panel to a Petal Pink mat and then to the inside of the Basic White Thick card base.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the rose image from the Ranunculus Romance stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I colored the image in using my Flirty Flamingo, Granny Apple Green and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of the Pattern Party 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! Amazing Silhouettes CAS Birthday

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the butterfly silhouette image from the Amazing Silhouettes stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the 2020-2022 In-Color DSP to the envelope flap.

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

Stampin’ Up! Queen Anne’s Lace Thank You

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Stampin’ Up! Artistically Inked for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. Happy New Year’s Eve!!! Does anyone have any plans for tonight or tomorrow? It’ll be a quiet night at my house.

I used a set today from the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog. Sometimes I forget about the annual catalog when the new catalogs are available. Here’s my card for today,

I used the Stampin’ Up! Artistically Inked Cling Stamp Set along with the Expressions In Ink Specialty Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by stamping the sentiment from the Artistically Inked stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the bottom of a Pale Papaya card front. I stamped the small floral image from the Artistically Inked stamp set in Pale Papaya Ink around the sentiment. I embossed the panel using the new Stripes & Splatters 3D Embossing Folder (available January 4, 2022).

I took a panel of Expressions In Ink DSP and scored, cut & folded it as in the diagram below. I adhered the cut & folded panel to the Pale Papaya card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue along the top edge, left side and the small right side.

I wrapped a piece of the Old Olive/Pretty Peacock 3/8″ Reversible Ribbon around the top of the panel and tied a small bow. I adhered the card front to a Pale Papaya card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Gilded Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Artistically Inked stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the small flower image from the Artistically Inked stamp set in Pale Papaya Ink on either side of the sentiment. I stamped the leaf images in Old Olive Ink on the flowers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Pale Papaya mat and then to the inside of the Pale Papaya card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic Whtie Medium Envelope. I stamped the small flower image from the Artistically Inked stamp set in Pale Papaya Ink on the envelope front and the leaves in Old Olive Ink. I adhered a panel of Expressions In Ink 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! Ranunculus Romance for the January-June 2022 Mini Catalog Blog Hop

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends. Welcome to our January-June 2022 Mini Catalog Blog Hop. If you’ve hopped over from Akiko Sudano’s blog, thank you for stopping by. We thought this would be a great way for you to see some of the beautiful products that will be available coming up Mini Catalog starting on January 4, 2022. We each got to pick a stamp set, bundle or suite that we wanted to feature. I hope you enjoy seeing everyone’s beautiful projects. Here’s mine using a new bundle from the Mini Catalog along with some of the gorgeous new Designer Series Paper.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Ranunculus Romance Bundle along with the Heart and Home Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by stamping the rose image and the small floral image from the Ranunculus Romance stamp set. I colored the stamps using my Fresh Freesia, Just Jade and Misty Moonlight Stampin’ Write Markers. I cut the images out using my Ranunculus Dies. I also cut a flower using one of the Ranunculus Dies from a panel of Pale Papaya cardstock. I adhered the die cut images on a Heart & Home Doilie using Glue Dots and Stampin’ Dimensionals

I adhered a panel of the Heart & Home DSP to a Basic Gray card base. On a strip of Fresh Freesia 2021-2023 In-Color Shimmer Vellum I stamped the postage image in Basic Gray Ink, stamping off once. I stamped the sentiment from the Ranunculus Romance stamp set in Basic Gray Ink on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the shimmer vellum using Stampin’ Seal just where the doily was going to be adhered.

I adhered the artwork to the shimmer vellum using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I tied a small bow using the Pale Papaya 3/8″ Open Weave Ribbon and adhered it with a Glue Dot to the bottom of the flowers. I added a few Iridescent Rhinestones Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Ranunculus Romance stamp set in Basic Gray Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the rose image from the Ranunculus Romance stamp set on the bottom of the panel coloring it in the same with my Stampin’ Write Markers, as I did for the card front. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Basic Gray mat and then to the inside of the Basic Gray card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the rose image from the Ranunculus Romance stamp set on the envelope front coloring it the same as I did for the card front. I adhered a panel of the Heart & Home 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 Moment CAS Sneak Peek

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Stampin’ Up! Awesome Otter for Fun Fold Friday

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Here is our sketch for this week.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Stampin’ Up! Honeybee Home Sneak Peek

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends and welcome to the weekend. I hope you have some fun plans. Have you gotten your tree up yet? Shopping done? I’m doing all my Christmas cookie baking this weekend. I started Thursday and should be finished up by today. Tomorrow will be finishing touches and putting all my trays together that I hand out.

For today’s card we did a Mystery Stamping at our team meeting this past Tuesday night. It was a lot of fun. Jaimie gave us measurements and told us what to do putting the card together. I got my right and left a little mixed up, but I’m still happy with the results. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Honeybee Home Bundle along with the Heart & Home Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by embossing a Pale Papaya card front using the new Hive 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the card front to a Pale Papaya card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered 2 panels of the Heart & Home DSP to the card front. I cut a strip of the Heart & Home DSP into a banner and adhered it to the left side of the card front. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the foxglove floral image from the Stampin’ Up! Honeybee Home Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink and colored it in using my Pale Papaya Stampin’ Blends Markers and my Garden Green Stampin’ Write Marker. I cut the image our using the Honeybee Blooms Dies. Using the same dies, I also cut out the floral and leaf images from panels of Cinnamon Cider and Garden Green cardstock.

I arranged the die cut pieces the way I wanted them and adhered them to the card front. On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Honeybee Home stamp set in Cinnamon Cider Ink and cut it our using my Stitched So Sweetly Dies. I adhered a piece of the Pale Papaya 3/8″ Open Weave Ribbon to the card front and adhered the sentiment over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Pale Papaya Genial Gems to the sentiment and added a Bumblebee Trinket to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Honeybee Home stamp set in Cinnamon Cider Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the floral image from the Honeybee Home stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink and colored it the same as I did for the card front. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Pale Papaya 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 foxglove image from the Honeybee Home stamp set on the envelope front and colored it in the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of the Heart & Home DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card. The items I used will all be available starting January4, 2022. I just love this DSP with this bundle. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Ranunculus Romance Sneak Peek for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Do you have plans for the weekend yet? I spent all day yesterday mixing cookie batters and baking off my bar cookies. Today and tomorrow, I’ll be baking all day. I got a lot more done than I expected to.

Today I have my simple go to fun fold card, a Z fold. For me this is one of the easiest fun folds that you can make. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Ranunculus Romance Cling Stamp Set along with the Expressions in Ink Specialty Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by adhering panels of the Expressions In Ink DSP to Just Jade mats using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panels to a Mint Macaron card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the rose image from the Ranunculus Romance stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I stamped the sentiment from the Ranunculus Romance stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink next to the rose image and cut the image out using my Scalloped Contours Dies.

I adhered the artwork to the front folded panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals, only on the left side of the artwork. I tied a small knot using the Just Jade & Gold 3/8″ Braided Ribbon and adhered it to the flower stem using a Glue Dot. I added a few Garden Gems to the artwork.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Ranunculus Romance stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the small, metered image from the Ranunculus Romance stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink, stamped off twice on scrap paper, by the sentiment. I adhered the Basic Whtie panel to a Just Jade mat and then to the inside of the Mint Macaron card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the rose image from the Ranunculus Romance stamp set in Tuxedo Black ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the Expressions in Ink DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will consider purchasing this gorgeous set when it becomes available January 4, 2022. Happy Stamping!!
