Stampin’ Up! Dainty Delight for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Does anyone have any plans yet for the weekend? I’ll be at work tomorrow, but I have Sunday off so I can attend our quarterly in person meeting. I always look forward to attending the meetings and getting together with team members.

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 is my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Dainty Delight Fun Fold 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Dainty Delight Bundle (available January 5, 2023) along with the Sale-a-bration Dainty Flowers Designer Series Paper (available free with a qualifying order starting January 5, 2023) for my card today. Something awesome about the new bundles coming in the January – April 2023 Mini Catalog, is that the stamp set and dies are the same name!!! If you like this bundle and purchase it, you will be able to earn the DSP for FREE. I don’t know about you, but free is my favorite price.

Stampin' Up! Dainty Delight Fun Fold 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by cutting all the die cut pieces of flowers, stems and leaves using the Dainty Delight Dies from panels of Crushed Curry, Fresh Freesia, Old Olive and Orchid Oasis cardstock. I adhered the stems, flowers and leaves to a panel of Dainty Flowers DSP using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, Stampin’ Dimensionals and Glue Dots. I trimmed off any excess using my Paper Snips. I adhered the panel to a small Orchid Oasis card front panel. I adhered the artwork panel to the inside back of the card base so that it overlapped the front of the card.

Stampin' Up! Dainty Delight Fun Fold 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

I adhered a panel of Dainty Flowers DSP to a Fresh Freesia mat. I adhered the layered panel to the front of an Orchid Oasis card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Dainty Delight Fun Fold 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Dainty Delight Cling Stamp Set in Orchid Oasis Ink. I stamped the floral images on the bottom of the panel in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the flowers in using my Fresh Freesia, Old Olive, Orchid Oasis and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Fresh Freesia mat. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue under the card front flap.

Stampin' Up! Dainty Delight Fun Fold 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside I stamped the small floral/grass image from the Dainty Delight stamp set in Old Olive Ink along the bottom of a Basic White panel. I stamped the floral images from the Dainty Delight stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on either side of the panel. I colored the floral images in using my Fresh Freesia, Old Olive, Orchid Oasis and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Fresh Freesia mat then to the inside of the Orchid Oasis card base.

Stampin' Up! Dainty Delight Fun Fold 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the floral images from the Dainty Delight stamp set on the envelope front and colored the flowers in the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of Dainty Flowers DSP to the envelope flap.

MY CURRENT HOST CODE IS:   7PTW7A3H

Use this host code when placing an order with me. When you order $50 or greater you will receive a free gift from me! If your order is over $150, please do not use this code, but you’ll still get the free gift. The free gift is your choice of any 1 item valued up to $10.00 from the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog or the July – December 2022 Mini Catalog!  Unfortunately packs of cardstock are no longer an option for a free gift. Shipping has become too expensive to ship and it’s costing me as much to ship as the cardstock costs. For any orders $50 or more I will also send you my monthly class tutorials.  Click HERE or go to my Customer Rewards for more details and to see what this month’s tutorials are.

Please remember to use my current Host Code and make sure that you can see my name on the final checkout page listed as your Demonstrator when you order so that you know that you’re ordering with me and you’ll get my rewards! 

Happy Stamping, Karen

*********************************************************************************************************

In response to changing policies at Stampin’ Up – I’m adjusting my Ordering Gift policy as well.  I’m having to get a little more tough on the adding of Host codes when you place your order thru my Online Store.

Not to worry – you’re still going to get that $10 ordering gift for orders of $50 (before shipping & tax) or greater.  And the gift is still any 1 SU! product (excluding cardstock) up to that $10 value – which includes some of our fun Host Sets!

But – if you DO NOT use the Host code for your orders of less than $150 (this is the RETAIL total before Shipping & Handling), then you’ll have two options:

  1. You’ll need to call Stampin’ Up! (1-800-Stamp-Up) and ask them to add it for you. They’re very helpful and will get it done quickly!  OR….
  2. If your order was over the $50 threshold but under $150, then…you’ll forfeit that $10 ordering gift and rewards – this is the Bummer Option – and I REALLY don’t want to do this, SO please remember to add my Current Host Code.

Stampin’ Up! OnStage Sneak Peeks

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend. Today I’ll be spending reading and rereading the new catalog and getting my order ready to place. Our Onstage Convention is in the books. It was so great being with everyone in person. The energy is so much higher than when it was virtual. I have a few sneak peeks for you. Do you want to see them? If not just skip my blog for today, but I know you do. Here we go!!

So it all starts with our Swag Box of goodies. We got an Evening Evergreen Cross Body Bag, which is beautiful. We got a notebook and pen so we could take notes and some swap pins.

Here’s a closer look at the 2 stamp sets we received. The top one, Beautifully Happy, is a Sale-a-bration set and the bottom one, Hand-Drawn Dots, is a background stamp.

A couple of my team members made little treats. Paula made the little box and Mary made the little cracker box for us.

Of course, the best part is when they hand out the new catalogs and say it’s time to take a break. I can’t show you the inside, but if you’re one of my customers you’ll be getting one as soon as I can order them. If you’d like to be a customer of mine and would like a catalog, send me an email and I’ll get you on my list.

Here’s the Sale-a-bration catalog. See anything you might like.

Next up is the Fancy Flora Suite that has 2 bundles, DSP, Specialty Paper, Ribbon and Embellishments.

These images are just gorgeous stamped.

And look at the matching dies.

Then there’s a beautiful sentiment set. I LOVE new sentiment sets.

They have awesome label dies.

Here’s a peek at the Fancy Flora Designer Series Paper. Sorry the pictures might not be the greatest.

Colors in the DSP are Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight, Soft Succulent, Balmy Blue, Orchid Oasis and Fresh Freesia.

There are Iridescent Pastel Gems in Calypso Coral, Balmy Blue and Gold. Then there’s gorgeous Fine Shimmer Paper in Soft Succulent, Gold and Fresh Freesia.

Last there’s Pool Party Grosgrain Ribbon to finish off the suite.

This is the Country Floral Lane Suite. The stamp set, Country Bouquet, is bundled with the Country Bouquet Punch. It comes with 2 different DSP packs, 1 which is shown, Country Floral Lane and the other is a 6 X 6 Country Gingham DSP (you’ll have to wait to see it in the catalog). Colors in the DSP’s are Balmy Blue, Mint Macaron, Mossy Meadow, Petal Pink and Sweet Sorbet. Beautiful Real Red and Burlap Ribbon Combo Pack and Pastel Adhesive-Backed Sequins that come in Balmy Blue, Gold and Petal Pink.

This pack of DSP was the first Prize Patrol given out. It’s called Like An Animal Specialty Paper and the colors in it are Basic Gray, Early Espresso, God, Sahara Sand, Silver and Soft Suede.

Here’s another pack of DSP that we received as a Prize Patro. It’s part of the Delicate Desert Suite. It’s the Drybrush Metallic Specialty Paper and the colors are Cajun Craze, Rose Gold, Petal Pink and Soft Succulent.

I’ll be back tomorrow with some more sneak peeks for you. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Framed Florets for Fun Folds Blog Hop

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends, welcome to a fun new blog hop!  It’s the Fun Folds Blog Hop for Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators!  We’ve got a talented line-up of demonstrators from all over. This is going to be a once-a-month hop and all our cards will be fun folds!!  Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Framed Florets Drapery 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the new upcoming Stampin’ Up! Framed Florets Bundle and the Fitting Florets Designer Series Paper for my card today.

Stampin' Up! Framed Florets Drapery 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by adhering a panel of Fitting Florets DSP to the top of a Polished Pink mat. I scored, cut & folded the panel of Fitting Florets DSP (as in diagram below) and adhered it to the bottom of the Polished Pink mat. I wrapped a piece of Balmy Blue 3/8″ Double Stitched Ribbon around the card front on the seams of the DSP and adhered it to the back using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the card front to a Soft Succulent card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Here is my template for the drapery fold.

Stampin' Up! Framed Florets Drapery 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a small panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Framed Florets Photopolymer Stamp Set in Polished Pink Ink. I fussy cut the sentiment using my Paper Snips. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Framed Florets Drapery 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the floral image from the Framed Florets stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image using my Balmy Blue, Polished Pink and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image out using the Framed Florets Dies. I adhered the floral image to the card front over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few of the new Gold Adhesive-Backed Swirls to the card front.

Stampin' Up! Framed Florets Drapery 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Framed Florets stamp set in Polished Pink Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the floral image from the Framed Florets stamp set on the bottom of the panel in Tuxedo Black Ink and colored it using my Balmy Blue, Polished Pink and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Polished Pink mat then to the inside of the Soft Succulent card base.

Stampin’ Up! Framed & Festive Fun Fold

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. By the time you are reading this blog I will be just about to Georgia for the retreat. I will still be able to get your emails and answer any questions, it just might take me a bit longer.

Today I have a sneak peek for you of a bundle coming November 1st. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Framed & Festive Fun Fold 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the new Stampin’ Up! Framed Florets Bundle, the Stampin’ Up! Framed & Festive Cling Stamp Set and the Fitting Florets Designer Series Paper for my card today. All items will be available starting November 1st. The Framed & Festive stamp set, and the Fitting Florets DSP are available only while supplies last.

Stampin' Up! Framed & Festive Fun Fold 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by folding the Basic White Thick card base in half at the 5 1/2″ score line and folding it back at the 4 1/2″ score line. I adhered the 1″ binder together using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I colored the berries on the Fitting Florets DSP using my Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the sentiment from the Framed & Festive stamp set in Versamark Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I sprinkled the panel with my Gold Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.

Stampin' Up! Framed & Festive Fun Fold 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

I cut the sentiment using the Framed Florets Dies. I cut the Cherry Cobbler panel using the same Framed Florets Die. I cut 2 of the sprigs from a Gold Foil Sheet using the Framed Florets Dies. I adhered the panels of Fitting Florets DSP to the Cherry Cobbler mats. I adhered the layered panel to a Basic White Thick card base.

Stampin' Up! Framed & Festive Fun Fold 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

I adhered the Cherry Cobbler frame to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the sentiment to the center of the frame using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the Gold Foil sprigs to the frame using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I added a few Gold Adhesive-Backed Swirls to the card front.

Stampin' Up! Framed & Festive Fun Fold 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Framed & Festive stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the leaf image from the Stampin’ Up! Framed Florets Photopolymer Stamp Set in Evening Evergreen Ink on either side of the sentiment. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat then to the inside of the Basic White Thick card base.

Stampin' Up! Framed & Festive Fun Fold 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the leaf image from the Framed Florets stamp set on the envelope front in Evening Evergreen Ink. I adhered a panel of Fitting Florets DSP to the envelope flap.

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. I hope you are all doing well today. Can you believe August is over? This has been the hottest August I remember in a long time. We’re still in the 90’s here in NJ. Today is the absolute LAST DAY to earn free Sale-a-bration items. If there is anything you’ve been wanting, today is the day to get it!!

Today’s card I used a new item that you will be able to purchase starting tomorrow, YAY!!! Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Fresh Cut Flowers Note 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Fresh Cut Flowers Cling Stamp Set along with the Stampin’ Up! Go To Greetings Cling Stamp Set and the new Fresh Cut Stems Dies for my card today.

Stampin' Up! Fresh Cut Flowers Note 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by stamping the large flower image from the Fresh Cut Flowers stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I colored the image in using my Fresh Freesia and Parakeet Party Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image out using my new Fresh Cut Stems Dies (available starting Sept 1- Sept 30). Using my Fresh Cut Stems Dies I cut 2 of the larger sprigs from a panel of Basic White cardstock and 3 of the small sprigs from a panel of Sahara Sand cardstock.

Stampin' Up! Fresh Cut Flowers Note 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

I cut the edge of a Basic White card front using the Fresh Cut Stems Dies. Using my Blending Brush, I added a little Tahitian Tide Ink to the center of the Basic White card front. I stamped the sentiment from the Go To Greetings stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom of the panel.

Stampin' Up! Fresh Cut Flowers Note 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

I wrapped a piece of Parakeet Party 1/8″ Metallic Ribbon around the card front and tied a bow. I adhered the card front to a Parakeet Party card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the large flower image to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the sprigs under the floral image using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I added a few Fresh Freesia 2021-2023 In-Color Opal Rounds to the card front.

Stampin' Up! Fresh Cut Flowers Note 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Go To Greetings stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the floral image from the Fresh Cut Flowers stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom of the panel. I colored the image in using my Fresh Freesia and Parakeet Party Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Parakeet Party mat and then to the inside of the Parakeet Party card base.

Stampin' Up! Fresh Cut Flowers Note 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the floral images from the Fresh Cut Flowers stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and flap. I colored the images in using my Fresh Freesia and Parakeet Party Stampin’ Blends Markers.

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. I hope you weekend is going as planned. I’ll be at work all day today, but when I get home, we’ll be making homemade pizza in our pizza oven. My husband is making the pizza dough this morning and my daughter will be getting all the toppings cut up and ready for tonight. We love using our pizza oven, it’s the best. The longest part is preparing the pizza to go in with my fresh basil and mozzarella. Once it’s put in the oven, it’s a matter of seconds that it’s done.

Today’s card I used some of the new dies that will be available starting September 1st. These dies are awesome. If you are interested in getting them early, I’d love to talk with you. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Apple Harvest Blossoms 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Apple Harvest Cling Stamp Set along with the Gingham Cottage Designer Series Paper and the new Apple Blossoms Dies (available Sept 1) for my card today.

Stampin' Up! Apple Harvest Blossoms 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by adhering a panel of Gingham Cottage DSP to a So Saffron card base. I embossed a panel of Granny Apple Green cardstock using the Stitched Greenery Dies. I adhered the panel to a So Saffron mat and then to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the apple image from the Apple Harvest stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image using my Granny Apple Green and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers. Using my Apple Blossoms Dies, I cut the apple and small flowers from the panel of Basic White, the flower center from a panel of Flirty Flamingo, the leave from a panel of Grany Apple Green and the branch from a panel of Soft Suede cardstock. I adhered the leaves to the branch using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the flower center to the flowers using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the flowers to the branch using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered the branch to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the apple to the branch using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered a couple of the flowers to the bottom of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment from the Apple Harvest stamp set on the panel of Basic White cardstock in Tuxedo Black Ink and cut it out using my Apple Blossoms Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added Pearl Basic Jewels to the flower centers.

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Apple Harvest stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the apples on the branch image from the Apple Harvest stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the top of the panel. I colored the image in using my Flirty Flamingo, Granny Apple Green, So Saffron and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic Whtie panel to a Granny Apple Green mat and then to the inside of the So Saffron card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the branch with the apple image from the Apple Harvest stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I colored the image using my Granny Apple Green and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of Gingham Cottage DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Splendid Thoughts Thank You Sneak Peek

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend.

Today’s card is part 2 of yesterday’s card. This one is also out of my comfort zone, but I had fun making it and was happy how it turned out. This was another one we made last Saturday at our Creativity Now Event and I tweaked it a little from the way they made it. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Splendid Thoughts Bundle along with the Splendid Day Specialty Designer Series Paper, the Stampin’ Up! Go To Greetings Cling Stamp Set and the Stampin’ Up! Inspired Thoughts Cling Stamp Set for my card today.

I started by embossing a Basic White card front using the Painted Posies 3D Embossing Folder. I lightly brushed Soft Sea Foam Ink over the embossed panel using my Blending Brush. I adhered the card front to a Basic White Thick card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Soft Sea Foam cardstock, I blended some Soft Sea Foam Ink to the bottom corner of the panel using my Blending Brush. I stamped the solid eucalyptus leaf image from the Stampin’ Up! Splendid Thoughts Cling Stamp Set in VersaMark Ink. I sprinkled it with my White Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I adhered the panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I took the 4 negative die cut panels from yesterday’s card and adhered them to the Soft Sea Foam panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. Using my Splendid Stems Dies, I cut 3 pieces of Splendid Day DSP using the leaf die. I adhered the 3 die cut leaves inside 3 of the negative half-moon dies using Glue Dots.

On a panel of Calypso Coral cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Go To Greetings stamp set in Versamark Ink. I sprinkled it with my White Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I cut the sentiment using my Stylish Shapes Dies and adhered it to the 4th negative half-moon die using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Fine Sparkle Adhesive-Backed Gems to the card front.

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Inspired Thoughts stamp set in Calypso Coral Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the solid eucalyptus leaf image from the Splendid Thoughts stamp set around the panel in Soft Sea Foam Ink. I adhered the Basic Whtie panel to a Soft Sea Foam 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 eucalyptus leaf image from the Splendid Thoughts stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink around the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the Splendid Day DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked the card and will give it a try. Some of the products that were used in today’s card will be available on Friday July 1st. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Splendid Thoughts Birthday Sneak Peek

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends and welcome to the weekend. Does anyone have any plans? I’ll be at work all day today, but they gave me off tomorrow so I can stay home with my fur baby. She still can’t stay alone since we have to keep her off the stairs.

Today’s card is another one that we made last Saturday night at our Creativity Now Event. Today and tomorrow’s cards actually go together, you’ll see why tomorrow. They are both outside of my comfort zone, but it’s ok to do that and try new things. I’m actually happy with how they turned out. I did tweak the cards a little from how they designed them. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Splendid Thoughts Bundle along with the Splendid Day Specialty Designer Series Paper and the Stampin’ Up! Go To Greetings Cling Stamp Set for my card today.

I started by randomly stamping the large leaf image from the Stampin’ Up! Splendid Thoughts Cling Stamp Set in Petal Pink Ink on a Petal Pink card front. I embossed the panel using the Fern 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the card front to a Petal Pink card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I cut 4 panels of the Splendid Day DSP using the 1/2 moon shape die from the Splendid Stems Dies. Using my Paper Snips, I distressed the edge of a panel of Basic White cardstock. I adhered the 4 die cut pieces to the Basic White panel unevenly leaving a space for the sentiment. I wrapped a piece of the Soft Sea Foam 3/8″ Seam Binding Ribbon around the panel and tied a knot. I adhered the panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Soft Sea Foam cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Splendid Thoughts stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I cut the sentiment out using my Stylish Shapes Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added an Open Leaf Trinket to the card front using a Glue Dot.

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Go To Greetings stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the large leaf image from the Splendid Thoughts stamp set around the panel in Petal Pink Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Petal Pink mat and then to the inside of the Petal Pink card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the leaf image from the Splendid Thoughts stamp set in Petal Pink Ink around the front of the envelope. I adhered a panel of the Splendid Day DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. The Bundle and DSP used for today’s card will be available starting Friday July 1st. If you don’t have a demonstrator and would like a copy of the Annual and Mini Catalog, please contact me and I’ll get one out to you right away. Happy Stamping!!

Today I have a card that we made at our Creativity Now event from Saturday night. The designers from Stampin’ Up! came up with 4 different cards that we made. Some of them were not exactly my style, but I made them anyway. They adhered DSP and dies crooked on the card fronts. Those that know me, know that I like things straight. These cards were out of my comfort zone, and I liked them lol. I’ll be showing the others over the next week. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Splendid Thoughts Bundle (available July 1st) along with the Stampin’ Up! Pansy Patch Photopolymer Stamp Set and Splendid Day Specialty Designer Series Paper (available July 1st) for my card today.

I started by embossing a Fresh Freesia card front using the Hive 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the embossed panel to a Fresh Freesia card base. I adhered a panel of the Splendid Day DSP to the card front on an angle using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I colored a panel of Basic White cardstock using my Fresh Freesia and Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Markers. I colored the top half with my Light Pool Party and the bottom half with my Light Fresh Freesia Stampin’ Blends Marker. I colored of the center of the panel with Dark Pool Party and Dark Fresh Freesia Stampin’ Blends Marker (I hope this makes sense). I stamped the bumblebee image from the Stampin’ Up! Splendid Thoughts Cling Stamp Set in Pool Party and Fresh Freesia Inks on their respective colors. I adhered the panel to the card front at the opposite angle of the DSP using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Pansy Patch stamp set in Fresh Freesia Ink. Using my Paper Snips, I cut the ends into a banner. I cut 2 of the leaf dies from the Splendid Stems Dies from a panel of Soft Sea Foam cardstock. I adhered the dies to the back of the sentiment using Glue Dots. I adhered a piece of the beautiful Soft Sea Foam 3/8″ Seam Binding Ribbon (available July 1st) behind the sentiment using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few 2021-2023 In-Color Opal Rounds to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Pansy Patch stamp set in Fresh Freesia Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the eucalyptus and bumblebee images from the Splendid Thoughts stamp set in Pool Party Ink on the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Soft Sea Foam mat and then to the inside of the Fresh Freesia card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the eucalyptus and image from the Splendid Thoughts stamp set in Pool Party Ink on the envelope front and the bee image in Fresh Freesia Ink. I adhered a panel of the Splendid Day DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card. The bundle and DSP used for my card today will be available for purchase starting on Friday July 1st. I hope that you are getting those shopping lists ready. I have mine ready to go first thing in the morning. Happy Stamping!!
