Stampin’ Up! Special Tasteful Touches Sneak Peek

Good Monday morning my stamping friends.  How was everyone’s weekend?  It ended up being a beautiful day here yesterday.  I took my fur baby and went for a nice walk and enjoyed the sunshine.

For today’s card I mixed a little retiring DSP with some new DSP.  Some of the new DSP coming is so realistic looking, it’s beautiful.  Here’s my card for today.

My colors were inspired by Just Add Ink Colour Challenge #504.  Here are their colors.

My design is from Fab Friday Sketch Challenge #189.  Here is their sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of the beautiful In Good Taste Designer Series Paper to a Smoky Slate card base using Snail.

I adhered a panel of Rococo Rose 2019-2021 In-Color 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Basic Gray mat using Snail.  I adhered the matted DSP to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Smoky Slate cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the new Stampin’ Up! Tasteful Touches Cling Stamp Set in Basic Gray Ink.  I stamped the feather image from the Tasteful Touches stamp set in Rococo Rose Ink above and below the sentiment.  I cut the sentiment out using the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I made a small bow from the Silver 3/8″ Metallic Edge Ribbon and adhered it to the sentiment with a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Tasteful Touches stamp set in Basic Gray Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the feather image from the Tasteful Touches stamp set on the left side of the panel in Rococo Rose Ink, stamping in full strength and then continuing to stamp until the stamp ran out of ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Basic Gray mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Smoky Slate card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the feather image from the Tasteful Touches in Rococo Rose Ink on both sides of the envelope front.  I stamped in full strength and continued stamping until the ink ran out.  I adhered a panel of the Rococo Rose 2019-2021 In-Color 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. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Touched My Heart Sympathy CAS

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends.  Happy Mother’s Day to all mothers, grandmothers, God mothers, mothers to be, step mothers, aunts, animal mothers and all our angle mothers.  I hope you all have a very enjoyable day. I’m hoping to get in some crafting time since we really can’t go anywhere.  This will be my first without my mom, so it’s going to be a little tough for me.

Today’s card is one of those we don’t like to make, but we have to.  I received my preorder last week and one of the sets I received was a Host exclusive set which just happen to have a Sympathy sentiment in it.  Here’s my card for today.

My design was inspired by Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #434.  They had the perfect clean and simple design for my sympathy card.  Here is their sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of the Old Olive Regals 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to an Old Olive card base using Snail.

I cut 2 rectangles out using the Stitched Rectangles Dies from a panel of Crumb Cake cardstock.  I embossed the rectangles using the new Tasteful Textiles 3D Embossing Folder (available June 3rd).  I adhered the rectangles to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a Whisper White panel I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Touched My Heart Host Cling Stamp Set (available June 3rd) in Old Olive Ink.  I stamped the leaf image from the Touched My Heart stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink below the sentiment, stamping off twice.  I cut the image out using the Stitched Rectangle Dies and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Path of Petals Photopolymer Stamp Set in Old Olive Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the leaf images from the Touched My Heart stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink on either side of the sentiment stamping off once.  I adhered a strip of the Old Olive Regals 6 X 6 DSP to the bottom of the panel using Snail.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Crumb Cake mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Old Olive card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the leaf images from the Touched My Heart stamp set in Old Olive Ink on the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of the Old Olive 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. Enjoy the rest of your weekend and have a wonderful day.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Mountain Air Birthday

Good Saturday morning my fellow stampers.  The weekend is upon us and we are back to chilly weather here.  I covered all my plants last night to save them from the frost.  I’ve got to work today, but I have off tomorrow for Mother’s Day.  How about all of you, what is everyone up to this weekend?

I’ve got a masculine card for you today using some of the new DSP from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.  Here’s my card for today.

My card today played along with the Aud Sentiments Challenge #250.  Their theme is ‘Masculine + A Sentiment’.

I also played along with Festive Friday Challenge #0058.  Here is their Inspo List.  I used copper, green and circles.  There’s also stripes from the wood.

I started by adhering a panel of the gorgeous new In Good Taste Designer Series Paper to a Shaded Spruce card base using Snail.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the detailed mountain image from the Stampin’ Up! Mountain Air Photopolymer Stamp Set in Crumb Cake Ink.  I flipped the stamp over and stamped the reverse image in Crumb Cake Ink, stamping off once, behind the detailed mountain.  I stamped the tree image from the Mountain Air stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink below the mountain image.  I stamped the cloud/moon image from the Mountain Air stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink above the mountain.  I colored the moon in using my So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the bird image from the Mountain Air stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink above the mountains 3 times.  I cut the image out using the largest circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I cut a scalloped mat out of a Copper Foil Sheet using the largest scallop circle from the Layering Circles Dies.  I adhered the artwork to the copper mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! By The Dock Cling Stamp Set in Shaded Spruce Ink on a Whisper White panel.  I cut the image out using the smallest circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I cut a scalloped circle from a Copper Foil Sheet using the Layering Circles Dies.  I adhered the sentiment to the Copper mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and then adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I tied a small bow from the Linen Thread and adhered it to the sentiment using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Birthdays Cling Stamp Set in Shaded Spruce Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the detailed mountain image from the Mountain Air stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink on the bottom of the panel.  I reversed the stamp and stamped the image behind the mountains in Crumb Cake Ink, stamping off once.  I stamped the tree image from the Mountain Air stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink below the mountain image.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Crumb Cake mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Shaded Spruce card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the detailed mountain image from the Mountain Air stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink on the envelope front.  I reversed the stamp and stamped the image behind the mountain in Crumb Cake Ink, stamping off once.  I adhered a panel of the In Good Taste DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Tasteful Touches Sneak Peek for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday.  How was everyone’s week?  Hope it was a productive one.  Is anyone doing anything for the weekend?  Sunday is Mother’s Day and I’m hoping to enjoy some crafting time.  It’s suppose to be cold here this weekend.  They are talking about getting snow tonight (which I’m actually not happy about).  I have to make some kind of tents tonight to try to protect my plants.  The last frost we had damaged a couple of them so I want to be prepared.

I’ve have a sneak peek for you today on some items from the new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.  I’ve made a peek-a-boo slider card for you using a new stamp set and the beautiful Just Jade cardstock.  I’m not a green fan, but I absolutely love this color.  Items for my card will be available June 3rd.  If you want to get the items early, you might want to consider joining as a demonstrator.  I’d be happy to help you do that, just drop me a line and I will help you.  We have an awesome team and I’d love to have you join us.   Here’s my card for today.

I started with the card front by stamping the leafy image from the Stampin’ Up! Tasteful Touches Cling Stamp Set in Shaded Spruce Ink on the Just Jade panel.  I stamped some in full strength ink and some stamped off twice. I set the panel aside.

I then worked on the inside of the card.  I folded the card center and cut a circle using the 4th from largest (2 1/4″) from the Layering Circles Dies and cut through both front and back.  I adhered a panel of the gorgeous new In Good Taste Designer Series Paper to the inside of the center card using Snail.  I opened the card center and lined up the 2 1/4″ circle die from the Layering Circles Dies with the already cut circle and cut through the DSP.  I scored and folded the card back and  adhered the card center using Tear &Tape Adhesive on the 1/4″ scored piece.  It should look like the photo below.

I adhered the card front to the card center using Snail on the front of the card center (hope this makes sense).  It will look like the photo below.

I opened all the panels so that I could cut the circle out of the card front.  I lined up the 2 1/4″ circle die from the Layering Circles Dies, with the circle from the card center and cut through the card front.

I stamped the sentiment from the Tasteful Touches stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink on the top of the card front. I added a couple Rhinestone Basic Jewels on either side of the sentiment.

I cut a scallop circle from a panel of Rococo Rose cardstock using the 3rd largest (2 1/2″) scallop circle from the Layering Circles Dies.  I cut the center out using the same circle (2 1/4″) I used to cut the card panels.  I adhered the scalloped circle frame to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I tied a small bow using the new Just Jade Gingham Ribbon from the Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack and adhered it to the card front using a Glue Dot.

I stamped the beautiful flower image from the Tasteful Touches stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a Whisper White panel.  I colored the image in using my Rococo Rose Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the image out using the 3rd largest circle (2 1/2″) from the Layering Circles Dies.  I added some Snail to the back of the image and lined it up behind the center card so that you could see it is centered in the circle.  I closed the card back onto the circle so that it was adhered to the card back.  You see the flower when the card is closed.

When you open the card you see a sentiment.  I stamped the sentiment  from the new Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers Cling Stamp Set in Shaded Spruce Ink in the center of the circle (which is actually on the small folded panel from the card front).  I stamped the feather image from the Tasteful Touches stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink around the sentiment, stamping off once.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the leafy image from the Tasteful Touches stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink on the envelope front.  Some are stamped in full strength and some are stamped off twice.  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 fun fold and will give it a try.  This is one of those fun folds that is easier to show than explain.  I may considering starting to do Facebook live videos when I do some of these fun folds.  They are much easier to show in person.  Hope you all have a wonderful Mother’s Day and you all get pampered the way we should for all the work we do.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Little Ladybug Thinking of You Sneak Peek

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers and HAPPY NEW YEAR’S EVE!!  Does anyone have any fun plans for this evening?  What does everyone do?  Go out or stay in?  I’m a stay in person.  I grew up having New Year’s Eve parties at our house and inviting family and friends over.  Tonight will be the 1st time, since I’ve gotten married 31 years ago, that we are having people over.  My husband never did anything on New Years, so he never wanted to after we were married.  Now I just have to make sure I can stay awake, that’s always a challenge for me lately.

For my last card of 2019 I made you a Clean and Simple one.  I used one of my favorite sets from the Sale-A-Bration Catalog, which by the way starts in just 3 short days.  I love stamping large images that I can color with my Stampin’ Blends Markers.   Here’s my last card of the year for you.

My colors were inspired by Global Design Project Challenge #221.   Here are their colors.

I played along with Inspire. Create. Challenge # 059 for my design with today’s card.  Here is their sketch.

I started by embossing a Cherry Cobbler card front using the Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing Folder.  I took my Stamping Sponge and lightly sponged over the card front using Early Espresso Ink to give it a little shading.

I stamped the large flower from the Stampin’ Up! Little Lady Bug Host Cling Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink on a small panel of Whisper White Cardstock.  I colored the image in using my Cherry Cobbler and Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the image out using the largest circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I stamped the sentiment from the Little Ladybug stamp set in Early Espresso Ink below the flower.

I adhered the artwork to the embossed card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, letting it hang off the left side just a smidge and cut it even with the card front.  I adhered the card front to a Cherry Cobbler card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few of the Shaded Spruce Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the artwork and card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Well Said Cling Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the large flower image from the Little Ladybug stamp set in Early Espresso Ink, stamping off 5 times to get a real light image, on both sides of the panel. I adhered the Whisper White panel to an Early Espresso mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Cherry Cobbler card base using Multipurpose Liquid glue.  I added a couple more Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels on either side of the sentiment to give a little extra bling.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the large flower image from the Little Ladybug stamp set once on the front of the envelope and twice on the envelope flap in Early Espresso Ink.  I colored the flowers in using my Cherry Cobbler and Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends Markers.

Stampin’ Up! To A Wild Rose for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday.  How was everyone’s short week?  We’ve got another short week coming up after this weekend.  Other than a tiny bit of running around yesterday, I was able to have a relaxing day off.  My main work place told me not to come in since there really wasn’t going to be any work and the dog bakery that I work at was closed for the day.  I can’t complain about a couple days off since I have been working 7 days a week for the past month or so.

For today’s fun fold card I used some of the new DSP in the Sale-A-Bration Catalog available on January 3, 2020.  Sale-A-Bration is where you get free merchandise with a qualifying order.  Here’s my card for today.

I started by stamping the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! To A Wild Rose Photopolymer Stamp Set in the center of a panel of Whisper White cardstock in Garden Green Ink.  On either side of the sentiment I stamped the 1st rose image from To a Wild Rose stamp set in Lovely Lipstick Ink stamping off once.  I stamped the 2nd rose image from To a Wild Rose stamp set in Lovely Lipstick Ink over the 1st image.  I stamped the 3rd rose image from To a Wild Rose stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink over the colored rose image.  I adhered the artwork to a Granny Apple Green Mat using Snail.

I folded a Granny Apple Green card base in half and then the front piece back and adhered a panel of the Lily Impressions Designer Series Paper (Sale-A-Bration item) to the top panel using Snail.  I wrapped a piece of the 3/8″ Linen Ribbon w/ White Edge from the Magnolia Lane Ribbon Combo Pack around the left side and tied a knot.  I adhered matted artwork to the card front half way across using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Glitter Enamel Dots to the artwork.

I adhered a panel of the Lily Impressions DSP to the inside of the card base using Snail.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from To a Wild Rose stamp set in the center of a Whisper White panel in Garden Green Ink.  I stamped the rose image from To a Wild Rose stamp set on either side of the sentiment the same as I did for the artwork on the front of the card.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Granny Apple Green mat using Snail and then adhered it 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 rose image from To a Wild Rose stamp set on the envelope front the same as I did for the card.  I adhered a panel of Lily Impressions 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 weekend.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Honey Bee Sneak Peek

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  Merry Christmas Eve.  I hope you have all your shopping done, gifts wrapped, decorating done and meals planned.  Believe it or not, I got it all done.  This was a little more last minute that I’m used to, I’m usually much more organized with this kind of stuff.  Time got the best of me this year.  By the time you read this I will already be starting our Christmas Eve Dinner.  My family does the feast of the 7 fishes.  I took over doing it many years ago and I have my whole family over tonight for dinner and to start the celebration of Christmas.  I haven’t gotten anyone to help me out with cleaning all the fish, but  I do get help with the cooking.  Everyone starts coming over at 2pm and we get started with our celebration.  Tomorrow will be a nice quiet, relaxing day spent with just my family opening some gifts, watching some Christmas movies, having a nice Christmas meal, playing games and maybe I’ll even get some craft time in.  A good day to just unwind after all the Hussle and bustle.

For today’s card I have a sneak peek from the upcoming January-June 2020 Mini Catalog and the Sale-A-Bration Catalog.  Only 10 days left till the catalogs go live.  I hope you are getting your shopping lists ready, I know I have mine ready to go.  Here’s my card.

My design was inspired by the Fab Friday Challenge #179.  Here is their sketch.

I started by cutting a panel of the Golden Honey Specialty Designer Series Paper using the largest Rectangle Stitched Dies.  I cut the inside out to make a frame of the panel using the 3rd largest Rectangle Stitched Die.  I adhered the frame to the front of a Basic Black card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  You can get this Golden Honey Specialty DSP FREE with a qualifying purchase from the Sale-A-Bration catalog starting January 3, 2020.  With the purchase of the Stampin’ Up! Honey Bee Bundle and something else small you can earn this beautiful paper.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the bee hive image from the Stampin’ Up! Honey Bee Cling Stamp Set.  I inked the stamp up with Daffodil Delight Ink and using my Sponge Dauber I edged the stamp with Calypso Coral Ink before stamping.  I stamped the sentiment from the Honey Bee stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink around the bee hive image.  I stamped the small bee image from the Honey Bee stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink above the bee hive.  On a small panel of  Whisper White cardstock I stamped each of the flower images from the Honey Bee stamp set.  I colored the stamps in using my Calypso Coral and Garden Green Stampin’ Write Markers.  I cut the images out using the Detailed Bee Dies.  I stamped the large bee image from the Honey Bee stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink on a small panel of Vellum cardstock.  I cut the bee out using my Detailed Bee Dies.  I colored the small bee image and the vellum  bee image in using my Basic Black and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I cut the artowrk out using the Rectangle Stitched Dies.  I adhered the vellum bee to the artwork using a Glue Dot.  I adhered the flowers on the bottom of the artwork using Glue Dots.  I adhered the artwork to the center of the frame using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels.

On the inside of a Whisper White panel I stamped the sentiment from the Honey Bee stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center.  I stamped the flower images from the Honey Bee stamp set  on either side of the sentiment.  I colored them in the same as I did for the artwork.  I stamped a couple of the small bees from the Honey Bee stamp set on the panel in Smoky Slate Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Daffodil Delight mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Basic Black card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the bee hive image from the Honey Bee stamp set on the envelope front colored the same as I did for the card front.  I stamped a small bee from the Honey Bee stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink next to the hive.  I adhered a panel of the Golden Honey Specialty DSP to the envelope flap.  I stamped a couple of the small bee images from the Honey Bee stamp set on the DSP on the envelope flap.  If you look at them close up, they look like they are behind the honey comb.  I stamped the flower images from the Honey Bee stamp set on the bottom of the envelope back colored the same as I did for the card front.

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

Stampin’ Up! Best Dressed Beautiful You CAS Card

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  It’s 1 week until Christmas.  If you haven’t gotten things done, today’s a great day to get going.   I have a half day off this week to try to get anything else done that I have to do. I don’t know how Christmas got here so quickly, but it did and I just have to go with it.

For today I have a quick and easy card for you showcasing one of the new Designer Series Papers from the New 2020 Mini Catalog.  Here’s my card.

I started by adhering a panel of the new Best Dressed 6″ X 6″ Designer Series Paper to a Blackberry Bliss mat using Snail.  I adhered the matted panel to a Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped the 2 sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Beautiful You Cling Stamp Set in Blackberry Bliss Ink below the matted panel.

I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels which I colored using my Dark Blackberry Bliss Stampin’ Blends Marker.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Beautiful You stamp set in Blackberry Bliss Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the dancing woman image from the Beautiful You stamp set in Blackberry Bliss Ink, stamping off 4 times, over the sentiment.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Blackberry Bliss mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the dancing woman image from the Beautiful You stamp set on the envelope front in Blackberry Bliss Ink, stamping off once.  I adhered a panel of the Best Dressed 6″X6″ DSP to the envelope flap.

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

Stampin’ Up! Forever Blossoms Wedding Sneak Peek

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  How has everyone’s week started off?  One week from today is Christmas Eve, yikes!!  Have you gotten you shopping done, baking done, cards mailed.  You all know I got my baking done.  My cards just went in the mail (here’s hoping they get to everyone on time).  Shopping??? Well, I haven’t really gotten any done.  I’ve sent my husband out to pick things up, guess that’s next on my list of things to do.  I’m really running out of time here.

For today I have another sneak peek for you using the Stampin’ Up! Forever Blossoms Bundle.  When I saw this set in the New 2020 Mini Catalog, I just knew I had to have it.  My son needs a wedding card for New Years Day, so I thought I’d play around with this bundle.  Here’s my card.

I started by embossing a Whisper White card front using the new Parisian Flourish 3D Embossing Folder.  I stamped the large floral image from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Blossoms Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink twice on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I colored the image in using my Purple Posy and Soft Seafoam Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the images out using the Cherry Blossoms Dies.

I adhered the cut images to the embossed Whisper White panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue letting them hang off on either side.  I cut the pieces that were hanging off the card front to make them even.  I adhered the card front to a Soft Seafoam mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I stamped the sentiment from the Forever Blossoms stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a thin strip of Whisper White cardstock.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered the matted card front to a Purple Posy card base using Stampin’ Dimensional.  I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the large floral image from the Forever Blossoms stamp set in Soft Seafoam Ink on a panel of Whisper White.  I stamped the sentiment from the Forever Blossoms stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink over the floral image in the center of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Soft Seafoam mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Purple Posy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I added a couple more Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the inside.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the large floral image from the Forever Blossoms stamp set in Soft Seafoam Ink on the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of Purple Posy 2019-2021 In-Color 6″ X 6″ Designer Series Paper to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card.  Stamp Set, Dies and Embossing Folder used for today’s card will be available in just 2 1/2 short weeks. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up Timeless Tulips Sneak Peek for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday the 13th morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday.  How was everyone’s week?  I’ve got all my cookie doughs mixed, some of my bar cookies made and today and tomorrow I bake everything off.  My house will have the wonderful aroma of freshly baked cookies for the next couple days.  Now to have the willpower not to eat them.

For today’s I made a card for you doing Simple Stamping .  I never do simple, but I thought I’d give it a try.  All I used was Stamp, Ink and Paper.  There are no layers, except for the sentiment and one thin strip.  Here’s my card.

My colors were inspired by the Color Throwdown Challenge #573.  Here are their colors.

I played along with the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #415.  Here is their sketch.

I started by folding my Thick Whisper White card base at 4 1/4″ & 2″ (a little different than a regular Z-Fold).

I adhered a thin strip of Lovely Lipstick cardstock to the left edge of the card base, on the fold, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  On the 2″ card front I stamped the script image from the Stampin’ Up! Very Versailles Cling Stamp Set twice in Granny Apple Green Ink stamping off once.  I stamped the sentiment from the Very Versailles stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink on a strip of Whisper White cardstock.  I adhered the sentiment strip to a Lovely Lipstick mat using Snail.

I stamped the tulip stems and leaves from the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips Photopolymer Stamp Set in Granny Apple Green Ink on the right of the card base.  I stamped the medium and small tulip images from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Lovely Lipstick Ink on the stems.  I adhered the sentiment, so that it went across the stems, on the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Very Versailles stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink behind the fold.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the tulip stems and leaves from the Timeless Tulips stamp set on the envelope front.  I stamped the medium and small tulip image from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Lovely Lipstick Ink on the stems.  I stamped the script image from the Very Versailles stamp set on the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card.  The Timeless Tulips Stamp Set will be available for purchase on January 3, 2020 from the New January-June Mini Catalog.  Happy Stamping.
