Stampin’ Up Path of Petals Sympathy Card

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  How is everyone’s week progressing?

Today’s card is one that we all need at one time or another unfortunately.  A co-worker lost his wife last week at way too young of an age.  I spent many times with her since her daughter was one of my Girl Scouts  when she was in elementary school.  She was a fun woman to be around and I’m happy I had the opportunity to get to know her.  Here’s today’s card.

My card was inspired by CAS(E) This Sketch Challenge #329.  Here is their sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of the gorgeous Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper to a Blueberry Bushel card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered 2 smaller panels of the Pressed Petals Specialty DSP to 2 Blueberry Bushel mats using Snail.  I adhered the matted panels to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered a smaller panel of Blueberry Bushel cardstock to the right side of the card front under the 2 matted panels.  On a small piece of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Path of Petals Photopolymer Stamp Set in Blueberry Bushel Ink.

On the inside I stamped the 3 step floral image from the Path of Petals stamp set in Daffodil Delight, Mossy Meadow and Rococo Rose Inks on the left side of a Very Vanilla panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the Path of Petals stamp set in Blueberry Bushel Ink to the right of the floral image.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to the inside of the Blueberry Bushel card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I stamped the 3 step floral image from the Path of Petals stamp set the same as I did for inside of the card.  I adhered a panel of Pressed Petals 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 Woven Heirlooms Sympathy Card

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers.  How is everyone doing today?

For today I have a really quick and easy card for you that showcases one of the new Designer Series Papers that just came out in the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.  Take a look.

I started with a panel of Mosaic Mood Specialty Designer Series Paper and adhered it to a Terracotta Tile card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Woven Heirlooms Cling Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink along the bottom section of the card base..

It always amazes me how one small panel of DSP can make such a beautiful card.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Woven Heirlooms stamp set in Early Espresso Ink in the center of a Very Vanilla panel.  I stamped the small filigree image from the Woven Heirlooms stamp set in the top two corners in Terracotta Tile Ink.  I stamped the border image from the Woven Heirlooms stamp set in Terracotta Tile Ink along the bottom of the Very Vanilla panel.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to the inside of the Terracotta Tile card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I stamped the border image from the Woven Heirlooms stamp set along the bottom front of the envelope in Terracotta Tile Ink.  I adhered a panel of the Mosaic Mood Specialty DSP to the envelope flap.  There you have it.  With a little DSP you can make the most beautiful cards ever.  You don’t need to add embellishments or anything.

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

Stampin’ Up Lasting Lily Sympathy Card for WWYS

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  We made it half way through the week already.  Hope you are all having a good week.

For today’s card I used the Stampin’ Up Lasting Lily Stamp Set.   The images in this set are simply gorgeous.  Take a look.

I joined in with What Will You Stamp challenge #207. Be sure to stop by to see what everyone has made and to play along.  Here is their challenge.

I started with a Whisper White card front and stamped the lily image from the Lasting Lily stamp set in Blackberry Bliss Ink and the stems in Old Olive Ink.  Using my Big Shot and the 3rd largest Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies I cut the image out.  Using the 2nd largest Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies I cut an Old Olive mat.

I adhered the artwork to the Old Olive Stitched Rectangle mat using Snail.  I wrapped a piece of Blackberry Bliss Nature’s Twine around the matted artwork and adhered it to a Blackberry Bliss card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I stamped the sentiment from the Lasting Lily stamp set in Blackberry Bliss Ink on a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock.  I punched the sentiment out using the up coming Story Label Punch from the Sale-A-Bration Coordination collection available March 1st.  I edged the punch with my Blackberry Bliss Stampin’ Write Marker.  I adhered the label to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.I made a bow from the Old Olive Linen Thread and adhered it to the side of the label using a Glue Dot.  I added a few Pearl Basic Jewels to the card front.
On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Lasting Lily stamp set in Blackberry Bliss Ink on a Whisper White panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to an Old Olive mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Blackberry Bliss card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the lily’s from the Lasting Lily stamp set the same as I did for the card front on the front of the envelope.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  The Lasting Lily stamp set is a Sale-A-Bration item you can earn FREE with a $100.00 order.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping.

Stampin’ Up Enjoy Life Clean and Simple Card

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers.  The weekend is approaching us quickly.  Is anyone making any fun plans?

For today I have a Clean and Simple Sympathy card for you.  I used the Stampin’ Up Enjoy Life Stamp Set along with a couple others.  Take a look.

I started with a Whisper White card front.  I took a scrap piece of paper and cut a circle out for a stencil.  I put the stencil where I wanted it on my card front and sponged inside the circle using first my So Saffron Ink then my Daffodil Delight Ink.  Once I was happy with the results, I removed the paper.  I stamped the image from Enjoy Life stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink over the sun.  I stamped the butterfly from the same stamp set above the floral image in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.

I stamped the ‘With Love & Sympathy” sentiment from the Stampn’ Up Itty Bitty Greetings Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the bottom of the card front.  I wrapped a piece of 5/8″ Burlap Ribbon around the card front and tied a knot.

I adhered the card front to a Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside on a Whisper White panel I stamped the floral image from the Enjoy Life stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, stamping off 3 times, to the bottom left side.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Lasting Lily Stamp Set (Sale-A-Bration item), in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Whisper White card base using Snail.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the floral image and butterfly from the Enjoy Life stamp set on the card front and the envelope flap in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.

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

Stampin’ Up Lasting Lily Sympathy

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  Hope you all had a great weekend.

For today’s card I made a Sympathy card using a Sale-A-Bration stamp set that is available free with a $100 order.  There are a couple of items from the Sale-A-Bration catalog that require a $100 order, but most of the products are free with a $50 order.  I used the beautiful Stampin’ Up Lasting Lily Photopolymer Distinktive stamp set. Take a look

I started with a Wood Textures Designer Series Paper card front and adhered it to a Mint Macaron card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a Whisper White panel, using my Stamparatus,  I stamped the stems from the Stampin’ Up Lasting Lily stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink. I stamped the leaf in Mint Macaron Ink on the stem on the right.  I then stamped the Lily’s from the same set in Powder Pink Ink onto the stems.  All the stamping of these flowers I used my Stamparatus,  it made it much easier to line everything up.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Powder Pink mat using Snail.  I wrapped a Mint Macaron piece of Nature’s Twine around the bottom of the artwork.

I adhered the matted artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  On a small piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Lasting Lily stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink.  I cut the oval out using my Big Shot and my Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.  Using the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies and my Big Shot again, I cut the Powder Pink scalloped oval mat.  I adhered the Stitched oval to the Powder Pink mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue then adhered it to the artwork and card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a Pearl Basic Jewel to the sentiment oval.

On the inside Whisper White panel I stamped the Lily image again from the Lasting Lily stamp set the same as I did for the card front, but stamping off once.  I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set over the lilies in Mint Macaron Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Powder Pink mat using Snail and then to the Mint Macaron card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the lilies from the Lasting Lily stamp set on the front of the envelope the same way I did for the card.  I adhered a piece of Wood Textured 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 Rooted In Nature

Good Monday morning everyone.  Hope your week is starting off good so far.

For today’s card I used the Rooted In Nature Bundle again.  This is such a great set, I’m really loving it.  The Nature’s Poem Designer Paper is just beautiful too.

I started with a piece of Cajun Craze cardstock for the card base.  I stamped the small leaf image from Rooted in Nature in Cajun Craze Ink on the card front.  I then adhered a piece of Nature’s Poem Designer Series Paper to the right side of the card front using Snail.

On a piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the image of one of the trees.  To get the 2 colors I colored the stamp using my Soft Suede and Mint Macaron Stampin’ Write Markers. I then sponged a little Mint Macaron on the bottom of the white paper to make it look like grass.  Using Snail I adhered it to a Grapefruit Grove mat.  I attached it to the center of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a scrap of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the smaller leaf image 3 times, once each in Cajun Craze, Grapefruit Grove and Mint Macaron Inks.  I then cut the leaf images out using the Nature’s Roots Framelit Dies with my Big Shot.  I attached them to the top left of my center piece using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered a bow made from Linen Thread to the bottom of my 3 leaves using a Glue Dot.

On the inside Whisper White panel, I stamped the small leaf image multiple times using Cajun Craze, Grapefruit Grove and Mint Macaron Inks.  Some of the images are full strength and some are stamped off.  No sentiment was added so that the card could be used for any occasion.  I adhered the panel using Snail to a Grapefruit Grove mat.  Using Liquid Glue I adhered it to the card base.

To complete my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope by stamping the small leaf image in Cajun Craze, Grapefruit Grove and Mint Macaron Inks, stamping off once, around the edges of the envelope.
