Stampin’ Up! Just Because

Good Sunday morning my fellow stampers.  How is everyone’s weekend going?  We’re having an absolutely gorgeous weekend here, though I’ve been inside at work.  The humidity has been lower and the sun is shining, what more can you ask for.

I’ve used another new stamp set coming in the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog, coming this Wednesday June 3rd, for my card today.  My card has a LOT of stamping going on.  I’ve also used a couple of the 2018-2020 retiring colors, so if you like these colors, you only have 2 days left to get them.  Here’s today’s card.

My colors were inspired by As You See It Color Challenge #226.  Here are their colors.

My design is from CAS Colours & Sketch Challenge #372.  Here is their sketch.

I started with a Shimmery Whisper card front and randomly stamped the images from the Stampin’ Up! Lovely You Cling Stamp Set in Call Me Clover, Daffodil Delight and Lovely Lipstick Inks.  Some of the images are stamped full strength and some are stamped off to give different shades.

I embossed a panel of Call Me Clover cardstock using the new Greenery Embossing Folder.  I cut the smallest circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies out of Daffodil Delight cardstock and embossed it using the Tasteful Textiles 3D Embossing Folder.  On a panel of Lovely Lipstick cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Lovely You stamp set in Soft Suede Ink.  I cut the panel out using the 2nd smallest oval from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I adhered the Daffodil Delight circle and the Call Me Clover rectangle to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the Lovely Lipstick oval to the card front overlapping the Call Me Clover and Daffodil Delight panels using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered the card front to a Soft Suede card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and added a few Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots to the card front.

On the inside I randomly stamped the images from the Lovely You stamp set in Call Me Clover, Daffodil Delight and Lovely Lipstick Inks around the edges of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Many Mates Cling Stamp Set in the center of the panel in Soft Suede Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Call Me Clover mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Soft Suede card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I randomly stamped the images from the Lovely You stamp set in Call Me Clover, Daffodil Delight and Lovely Lipstick on the bottom of the envelope front and the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try.  Some of the items used today will be retiring as of Tuesday June 2nd and some will be available from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog starting Wednesday June 3rd.  I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend and are able to get out in some beautiful sunshine Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Beautiful World

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends.  How is everyone doing today?  Does anyone have plans for the weekend?  I’ll be at work all day today.

I have a masculine card for you today using a new bundle coming in the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog starting this Wednesday June 3rd, YAY!!!  Here’s my card for today.

My design is from Global Design Project Challenge #242.  Here is their sketch.

I started by embossing a Cinnamon Cider card front using the new Old World Paper 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered 2 strips of the new World of Good Specialty Designer Series Paper to the top and bottom of a Cinnamon Cider card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered the embossed panel to the center of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I added the Antique Corners & Slides Embellishments to the 4 corners of the panel using Glue Dots.

I cut a panel of Misty Moonlight cardstock using the World Map Dies.  I also cut a panel of the new Brass Foil Sheet using the detailed globe from the World Map Dies.  I adhered the detailed globe to the Misty Moonlight die cut panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue then I adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Gather Together Photopolymer Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink on a thin strip of Whisper White cardstock.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front, across the globe, using Stampin’ Dimensionals on the ends only.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Beautiful World Cling Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the ink pot image from the Beautiful World stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the bottom of the panel, stamping off once.  I stamped the quill image from the Beautiful World stamp set in Early Espresso Ink, stamping off once, to the right of the sentiment.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Cinnamon Cider mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Cinnamon Cider card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the globe image from the Beautiful World stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the bottom front of the envelope.  I stamped the compass image from the Beautiful World stamp set in Early Espresso Ink, stamping off 2 times, next to the globe.  I adhered a panel of the World of Good Specialty DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card.  Products for my card will be available for purchase on Wednesday June 3rd.  Hope you are getting your shopping lists ready.  Enjoy your day.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Hello Field Flowers

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends.  How is everyone doing today?  We’re already halfway through the week.  I just love these short weeks.

For today, I kind of have a triple time card, but not really if that makes sense.    I used some new items coming in the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog, some retiring colors and some items carrying over.  Here’s my card for today.

My colors were inspired by Fab Friday Color Challenge #190.  Here are their colors.

I started by embossing a Whisper White panel using the Parisian Flourish 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the panel to a Blushing Bride card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered a panel of the gorgeous new In Good Taste Designer Series Paper to a panel of Blushing Bride cardstock using Snail.  This DSP is just so pretty and looks so real.  Every time I pull it out I have to touch it because it looks almost 3D.  I adhered the matted DSP to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the stem image from the Stampin’ Up! Field of Flowers Photopolymer Stamp Set, (available June 3rd), in Call Me Clover Ink (retiring June 2nd).  I stamped the flower image from the Field of Flowers stamp set in Flirty Flamingo Ink on top of the stems.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips Photopolymer Stamp Set in Call Me Clover Ink on the bottom of the panel.  I adhered the artwork to a Blushing Bride mat using Snail.  I adhered the matted artwork to the DSP panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a scrap of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the small butterfly from the Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Gala Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink twice.  I stamped the fill color image from the Butterfly Gala stamp set in Pineapple Punch Ink on top of the outlined butterfly image.  I punched the butterflies out using the Butterfly Duet Punch, bent the wings forward and adhered them to the artwork using Glue Dots.  I added a few Melon Mambo Rhinestones from the Noble Peacock Rhinestones pack to my artwork.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Call Me Clover Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the stem image from the Field of Flowers stamp set in Call Me Clover Ink on the bottom of the panel.  I stamped the flower image from the Field of Flowers stamp set in Flirty Flamingo Ink on top of the stems.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Whisper White mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Blushing Bride card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the stem image from the Field of Flowers stamp set in Call Me Clover Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped the flower image from the Field of Flowers stamp set in Flirty Flamingo Ink on top of the stems.   I adhered a panel of In Good Taste 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! Many Mates Jar of Flowers for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday.  How was everyone’s week?  We’re upon a holiday weekend, which normally I would have a lot going on.  I do have to work Sunday and I told my boss I would come in on Saturday for a couple hours to relieve the cashiers so they could take breaks.  These past few weekends no one was able to take a break it was so busy.  Plus, if I go in on Saturday and do some of my work in the office, I won’t have to go in on Tuesday (which is my daughter’s birthday).  Luckily we are closed on Monday, the store has been closed for  60 years on Memorial Day and they are not about to start opening now.

Onto my card for today.  I mixed up some retiring items along with some new items for today’s card.  I’m really determined to use up some more of my DSP that’s retiring.  Here’s my card for today.

My colors were inspired by Sunday Stamps Challenge #231.  I thought the 1st color of the pallet was Navy, but the more I look at it I believe it’s Black. Here are their colors.

My design is from Try Stampin’ On Tuesday Challenge #457.  Here is their sketch.

I started by cutting part of my card front off so that I had a half panel.  I took an 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″ card base and scored it at 4 1/4″.  From the top center I cut down to the 3″ mark.  I then turned my card base and cut from the center at that 3″ mark to the outside of the panel leaving just the bottom portion.  I adhered a panel of Old Olive Regals 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to the bottom portion of the card front.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the flower and jar images from the Stampin’ Up! Jar of Flowers Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.   I colored the flowers in using my Flirty Flamingo, Old Olive, Poppy Parade and Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the stem image from the Jar of Flowers stamp set in Old Olive Ink in the jar and punched it out using the Jar Punch.  I colored the stems in using my Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers, fussy cut the flowers using my Paper Snips and adhered them to the top of the jar using Glue Dots.  I cut the largest circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies  from a panel of Night of Navy cardstock.  I cut the largest scalloped circle from the Layering Circles Dies out of a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I took a 1″ strip of Whisper White cardstock and embossed it using my Lace 3D Embossing Folder.  On a thin strip of Poppy Parade cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Many Mates Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.

I adhered the embossed Whisper White strip to the top of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the Night of Navy stitched circle to the Whisper White scalloped circle using Snail and adhered it to the card front, hanging off the right side, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I cut the circle straight with the side of the card front.  I adhered the jar of flowers to the circle using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the Poppy Parade sentiment strip across the card front over lapping the embossed strip and the jar using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Noble Peacock Rhinestones to the card front.

On the inside I adhered a Rich Razzleberry Regals 6 X 6 DSP panel to the card base using Snail.  I stamped the sentiment from the Many Mates stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of the Whisper White panel.  I stamped the flower image from the Jar of Flowers stamp set in Night of Navy Ink over the sentiment, stamping off 4 times to get a very light image.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Night of Navy mat using Snail and then to the inside of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the flower image from the Jar of Flowers stamp set on the envelope front.  I colored the image in using my Flirty Flamingo, Old Olive, Poppy Parade and Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of the Regals 6 X 6 DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try.  I hope you all have a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend.  Stay Safe!!  Happy Stamping.

Stampin’ Up! Forever Inspiring Iris

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends.  How is everyone doing today?  We’re halfway through the week already and a little over halfway through the month.   These past few months have been a blur.  I got a wonderful phone call yesterday.  My hair dresser called me to tell me they should be opening up June 1st.  I was so excited.  Just like many of you, I am in desperate need of a hair cut.  I’m not sure how this whole thing is going to work.  I’m assuming we have to wear masks and stay covered while there.   I’m sure I’ll find out.

For today’s card I pulled out a stamp set from the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog and paired it with some of the new DSP and Embossing Folder from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.  Here is my card for today.

My colors were inspired by Global Design Project #241.  Here are their colors.

My design is from Crazy 4 Challenges #535.  Here is their sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of the new Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper to a Pretty Peacock card base using Snail.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the outline iris image and the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Inspiring Iris Photopolymer Stamp Set in Pretty Peacock Ink.  I stamped the leaf fill image from the Inspiring Iris stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink and I stamped the flower fill image from the Inspiring Iris stamp set in Blushing Bride Ink.  I adhered the artwork to a Pretty Peacock mat using Snail.   I adhered some of the retiring Rose Metallic Thread to the back of the matted artwork using Snail.

I cut 3 of the 2nd smallest scalloped squares from the Layering Squares Dies out of a panel of Blushing Bride cardstock.  I cut 3 of the smallest squares from the Stitched Shapes Dies out in Soft Sea Foam cardstock.  I embossed all 3 squares using the new Greenery Embossing Folder and adhered them to the scalloped squares using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the 3 matted squares to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the matted artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I made a small bow using the Old Olive/Pretty Peacock 3/8″ Reversible Ribbon and adhered it to the bottom of the flowers using a Glue dot.  I added a few of the retiring Pretty Peacock Noble Peacock Rhinestones to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Inspiring Iris stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped just the leaf and flower fill images from the Inspiring Iris stamp set in Soft Seafoam and Blushing Bride Ink on the bottom of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Soft Sea Foam mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Pretty Peacock card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the leaf and flower fill images from the Inspiring Iris stamp set in Soft Sea Foam and Blushing Bride Ink on the front of the envelope.  I adhered a panel of the Forever Greenery 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! Butterfly Birthday

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends.  How has everyone’s week started off?

For today’s card I went out of my comfort zone.  I usually make cards with lots of colors or at least 3, today I made a monochromatic card.  This was really hard for me, but I wanted to try it.  I used some items from the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog and mixed it with some new items from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.  Here’s my card for today.

My colors are from Seize The Birthday Challenge #190.

I also joined in with Joy of Sets Tic Tac Toe Challenge #017.  I went across the top.

I started by cutting the butterflies out using the Butterfly Beauty Dies in Soft Sea Foam cardstock.  I adhered the butterflies to a Soft Sea Foam card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Using some of the gorgeous new ribbon from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog I used the Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack and the Just Jade 2020-2022 In-Color 1/4″ Ribbon.  I started by wrapping a piece of the Whisper White 1/2″ Faux Linen Ribbon around the right corner on an angle and adhered it on the back of the card front using Snail.  I wrapped a piece of the Just Jade 3/8″ Gingham Ribbon around the bottom of the card front, overlapping the Faux Linen Ribbon, adhering it on the back with Snail.  I then wrapped a piece of the Just Jade 2020-2022 In-Color 1/4″ Ribbon over the top of the Faux Linen Ribbon and the Just Jade Gingham Ribbon adhering it on the back of the card front with Snail.

I cut the sentiment out of a small panel of Just Jade cardstock using the Well Written Dies and adhered it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I added a few Just Jade 2020-2022 In-Color Enamel Dots to the card front.  I adhered the card front to a Just Jade card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Well Said Cling Stamp Set in Shaded Spruce Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the Bokeh dots image from the Stampin’ Up! Beauty Abound Cling Stamp Set in Soft Sea Foam Ink around the sentiment.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Soft Sea Foam mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Just Jade card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the butterfly image from the Beauty Abounds stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped the bokeh dots image from the Beauty Abounds stamp set on the envelope flap in Soft Sea Foam Ink.

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

Stampin’ Up! Hello Sunflower Sneak Peek

Good Monday morning my stamping friends.  How was everyone’s weekend?

I have another sneak peek for you today.  I don’t know which is my favorite so far.  I just love all the new sets I’ve gotten.  Here’s my card for today.

I started by embossing a Cinnamon Cider card front using the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered a panel of the new 2020-2022 In-Color Designer Series Paper in Bumble Bee on top of the panel.  I wrapped a piece of the new Cinnamon Cider 1/4″ In-Color Ribbon around the center of the panel.  I adhered the card front to a Cinnamon Cider card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the small sunflower and small leaf images from the Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers Cling Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink.  I colored the image in using my Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, Granny Apple Green and Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the images out using my Sunflower Dies.  I cut the 2nd largest circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies from a Whisper White panel.  I adhered the sunflower to the panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added the leaves under the sunflower using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a very thin strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips Photopolymer Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink.  I sponged the edges lightly using my Sponge Dauber and the Early Espresso Ink.  I adhered the sentiment to the artwork using a Glue Dot and Mini Stampin’ Dimensional.  I added a few Bumble Bee 2020-2022 In-Color Enamel Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Early Espresso Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the large sunflower image from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Mango Melody Ink over the sentiment, stamping off twice.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Bumble Bee mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Cinnamon Cider card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the small sunflower image from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the front of the envelope.  I colored the image in using my Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, Granny Apple Green and Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of the 2020-2022 In-Color 6 X 6 DSP in Bumble Bee to the envelope flap.

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

Stampin’ Up! Jar of Flowers Sneak Peek

Good Sunday morning my fellow stampers.   Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend.  I have today off, so I’m not sure what I will be doing yet.  We’ll see how the day progresses.

I have another sneak peek for you today using part of the Stampin’ Up! Flowers For Every Season Suite coming June 3rd in the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.  Here’s my card for today.

I started by cutting a Night of Navy card front using the Ornate Borders Dies.  I adhered the card front to a Petal Pink card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Using the 5th largest Stitched Rectangle Die, I cut a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I cut partway through then moved the die down and flipped the paper and cut partway through again.  I stamped the spring flower image from the Stampin’ Up! Jar of Flowers Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the cut panel.  I colored the flowers in using my Daffodil Delight, Highland Heather, Night of Navy and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I colored the leaves using my Garden Green Stampin’ Write Marker.  On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the larger jar image from the Jar of Flowers stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I stamped the reverse side of the small jar image from the Jar of Flowers stamp set in Balmy Blue Ink.  I stamped the stem image from the Jar of Flowers stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink inside the jar and colored them in using my Garden Green Stampin’ Write Marker.  I cut the image out using my Jar Punch .  I wrapped a small piece of Petal Pink 1/4″ Metallic Edge Ribbon around the top of the jar and adhered it to the stamped image using Glue Dots.  I tied a knot using the Petal Pink 1/4″ Metallic Edge Ribbon around the wrapped ribbon.

I adhered the artwork to a panel of Parisian Blossoms Specialty Designer Series Paper using Snail.  I adhered the matted panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the centers of the die cut flowers on the edge.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! So Sentimental Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I adhered 2 strips of the Parisian Blossoms Specialty DSP to either side of the panel using Snail.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Night of Navy mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Petal Pink card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the flower image from the Jar of Flowers stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front.  I colored the image in using my Daffodil Delight, Highland Heather, Night of Navy and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers and my Garden Green Stampin’ Write Marker.  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. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers Sneak Peek

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends.  How has everyone’s weekend started off?  I have to work today, but I have all day tomorrow off.

For today’s card I have another sneak peek for you from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.  Speaking of catalogs, I finally got my catalogs yesterday.  If you are a customer of mine, you will be receiving yours shortly.  Here’s my card for today.

My design is from the Tuesday Morning Sketches #554.  Here is their sketch.

I also played along with the Cardz 4 Galz Challenge #121.  Their theme is ‘Birthday’.

I started by adhering a panel of the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper to a Just Jade mat using Snail.  I adhered the matted panel to a Bumble Bee card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Bumble Bee cardstock I stamped the large sunflower image from the Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers Cling Stamp Set in Crushed Curry Ink.  I cut the image out using the Sunflower Dies.  I cut the detailed sunflower die and the sunflower center die out of a panel of Cinnamon Cider cardstock using the Sunflower Dies.  I adhered the detailed die to the stamped image with tiny amounts of Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the center die using Multipurpose Liquid glue.  I stamped the larger leaf image from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink on a panel of Just Jade cardstock.  I cut the images out using the Sunflower Dies.  I cut the detailed leaf die out of a panel of Shaded Spruce cardstock.  I adhered a piece of the gorgeous new Bumble Bee 1/4″ Gingham Ribbon to the card front using a few Glue Dots.  I adhered the sunflower to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added the leaves under the sunflower with a dot of Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Early Espresso Ink.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Just Jade 2020-2022 In-Color Enamel Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the large sunflower image from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Crushed Curry Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel, stamping off once.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! So Sentimental Cling Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink over the sunflower image.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Just Jade mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Bumble Bee card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the large sunflower image from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set on the envelope front in Crushed Curry Ink.  I adhered a panel of the In Good Taste 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! Field Of Flowers Sneak Peek for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday.  How was everyone’s week?  Hope you had a productive one.  Is anyone doing anything this weekend?  A friend of mine was going to a nursery and I asked her to pick up a flat of flowers for me.  I’m hoping to get them planted around my gardens and in some of my flower pots.

For today’s card I have a fun fold that uses a whole sheet of cardstock along with giving you a sneak peek of a new bundle coming in the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.  Here’s my card for today.

My colors were inspired by Paper Players Color Challenge #490.  Here are their colors.

My design is from the CAS Colours & Sketch Challenge #370.  Here is their sketch.

I also joined in with Just Add Ink Challenge #505. Their theme is ‘Thinking of You!’

I started with an 8 1/2″ X 11″ panel of Pool Party cardstock.  I scored it in half at 5 1/2″.  I turned the panel the long way and scored it at 2 1/8″ & 6 3/8″.  It should look like the photo below.

I cut the top right and left side panels off at the score lines, it will look like the photos below.  After cutting the side panels off, I cut another 1/16″ off the gate folds so that the top would fold down flat.  The bottom portion will be a gate fold card and the top portion will fold down.

The bottom portion will be a gate fold card and the top portion will fold down.

I adhered a panel of Parisian Blossoms Specialty Designer Series Paper to a Pool Party mat using Snail.  On a Whisper White strip I stamped the foliage image from the Stampin’ Up! Field of Flowers Photopolymer Stamp Set in Granny Apple Green Ink.  I adhered the panel to a Pool Party mat using Snail.  On a scrap of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the tiny flower image from the Field of Flowers stamp set in Melon Mambo Ink a couple times.  I cut the images out using the Confetti Flowers Border Punch.  I also cut some of the flowers out of a scrap of Melon Mambo cardstock.  I randomly adhered the flowers to the stems using tiny dots of Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the matted panel to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On another small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Field of Flowers stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I stamped the larger stem image from the Field of Flowers stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink over the sentiment.  I stamped the single flower image from the Field of Flowers stamp set in Melon Mambo Ink on the stems.  I stamped the dragonfly image from the Field of Flowers stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink  below the sentiment and a couple times on the DSP.  I cut the sentiment out using the 2nd smallest circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I cut a scalloped circle out of Pool Party cardstock using the Layering Circles Dies that was a size larger than the stitched circle.  I adhered the stitched circle to the scalloped circle using Snail and then on top of the artwork strip using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Melon Mambo Noble Peacock Rhinestones to the artwork.

I adhered 2 panels of Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper to the 2 inside fold panels.  To keep with the colors, I colored the leaves and flowers on the DSP using my Granny Apple Green and Melon Mambo Stampin’ Write Markers.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Field of Flowers stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the stem image from the Field of Flowers stamp set on the side and bottom of the panel in Granny Apple Green Ink.  I stamped the double flower image from the Field of Flowers stamp set in Melon Mambo Ink on top of the stems.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pool Party mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Pool Party card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the stem image from the Field of Flowers stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped the flower images from the Field of Flowers stamp set in Melon Mambo Ink on top of the stems.  I stamped the dragonfly image from the Field of Flowers stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink near the flowers.  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.  The stamp set/bundle I used will be available for purchase June 3rd.  The DSP and Noble Peacock Rhinestones I used will be retiring June 2nd or while supplies last.  Happy Stamping.
