Stampin’ Up! Flowering Blooms Sympathy CAS

Good Saturday morning my fellow stampers.  How has everyone’s weekend started off?  I have to work today, but I’m off tomorrow.  I’m not sure what we’re doing, if anything.  We always wait to see what the weather will bring.

For today I have a Clean and Simple card for you.  Here’s my card for today.

My colors are from Color Throwdown Challenge #601.  Here are their colors.

I started by stamping the rose image from the Stampin’ Up! Flowering Blooms Cling Stamp Set, colored using my Granny Apple Green and Merry Merlot Stampin’ Write Markers, on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I colored the roses in using my Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I stamped the butterfly image from the Stampin’ Up! Beauty Abounds Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink above the rose and colored it using my Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Moments Cling Stamp Set in Merry Merlot Ink next to the flower image on the bottom of the panel.  I adhered the card front to a Flirty Flamingo mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the front of a Merry Merlot card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Pumpkin Pie Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels on the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Peaceful Moments stamp set in Merry Merlot Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the rose image from the Flowering Blooms stamp set, colored with my Granny Apple Green and Merry Merlot Stampin’ Write Markers, on the bottom of the panel.  I colored the roses in using my Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Flirty Flamingo mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Merry Merlot card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the rose image from the Flowering  Blooms stamp set, colored with my Granny Apple Green and Merry Merlot Stampin’ Write Markers, on the envelope front.  I colored the roses in using my Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the butterfly image from the Beauty Abounds stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink above the rose and and on the envelope flap and colored them in using my Flirty Flamingo and Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends Markers.

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

Stampin’ Up! CAS Framed For You

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends.  How is everyone’s weekend going?  Hope you are able to find time to do something fun.

Today I have a clean and simple card for you.  Clean and simple is very hard for me to do.  I almost always like to add something punched or die cut.  My Stamparatus got a bit of a workout for this card.  Here’s my card for today.

My design is from CAS Colour and Sketch Challenge #376.  Here is their sketch.

I started by stamping the flourish image from the Stampin’ Up! Framed For You Cling Stamp Set in Misty Moonlight Ink across the bottom of a Whisper White panel using my Stamparatus.

I stamped the leaf image from the Framed For You stamp set in Just Jade Ink up the side of the Whisper White panel using my Stamparatus.  I then stamped the tiny flower image from the Framed For You stamp set in Bumblebee Ink around the leaf image up the side.  On a strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Framed For You stamp set in Just Jade Ink

I adhered the artwork to a Misty Moonlight mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to a Thick Whisper White card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the sentiment to a Misty Moonlight mat using Stampin’ Seal and adhered it to the artwork using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Well Said Cling Stamp Set in the center of a Whisper White panel in Just Jade Ink.  I stamped the flourish image from the Framed For You stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink across the bottom of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Misty Moonlight mat using Stampin’ Seal  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 leaf image from the Framed For You stamp set across the bottom front of the envelope and the envelope flap in Just Jade Ink.  I stamped the small flower image from the Framed For You stamp set in Bumblebee Ink between the leaf image.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try.  Happy Stamping and enjoy the rest of your weekend!!

Stampin’ Up! Sympathy Pressed Petals CAS

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends.  How has everyone’s weekend started off?  I’ve gotten 4 of my 7 gardens cleaned up and mulched.  My gardens are encircled with very large rocks and every couple years I have to lift all the rocks and rake the dirt under them and put them all back.  Since last year I had shoulder surgery and couldn’t do anything, this is the year to do it.  My other 3 gardens I will clean up and re-do the rocks and I’m planning on putting small rocks instead of mulch.  Does anyone have plans for today?  It’s suppose to be rainy here, so I won’t be working outside much.  I love crafting on rainy days, so I’m hoping to get some time in between work.

So for today I have a super easy Clean and Simple card for you.  As I said yesterday, I’m trying to use up some of my DSP before it retires for good.  Here’s my card.

Unfortunately I’ve used up the sympathy cards I keep on hand so I thought I’d make one to keep in my box. I like to keep a couple on hand, just in case.

I started by cutting a panel of the Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper that already had the encircled flowers on it.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Woven Heirlooms Cling Stamp Set in the center of the oval in Mossy Meadow Ink.

I adhered the DSP to a Mossy Meadow mat using Snail and then to a Mossy Meadow card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Well Said Cling Stamp Set in the center of a Very Vanilla panel in Mossy Meadow Ink.  I adhered 2 strips of the Pressed Petals Specialty DSP to the top and bottom of the panel using Snail.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to the inside of the Mossy Meadow card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I adhered a strip of the Pressed Petals Specialty DSP to the front of the envelope and a panel 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! Happy Tails for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday.  Happy May!!  Not sure where March and April went, but it’s May, which to me, means the warm weather should be here.  Hopefully it will get here soon.   How was everyone’s week?  The weekend is here again and we still can’t go out to do anything.  Parks are still closed along with a lot of other things.  I’ll be working on Sunday and hopefully doing a lot of card making tomorrow.

I have a card for you today that I don’t like to make, I don’t think any of us do.  One of my co-workers and friend lost her best fur friend this week.  Poor thing made it through his major surgery, when he was waking up went into cardiac arrest.  It was a real shock to her and her family.  I used the retiring stamp set for her card.  Here’s my card for today.

I started with a 4 1/4″ X 11″ Crumb Cake card base scored at 5 1/2″.  I made a little mark at 4 1/4″ on the top of the card front and scored from that mark down to the bottom  front corner.  I made 1/4″ score lines on the side and bottom of the triangle piece that folds down.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the outline dog image from the Stampin’ Up! Happy Tails Photopolymer Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink.  I stamped the spot image from the Happy Tails stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink, stamping off once, on top of the outline image. I stamped the collar image from the Happy Tails stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I punched the dog out using my Dog Builder Punch.  The Dog Builder Punch, punches out a heart when you punch out the dog.  I colored the heart using my Dark Real Red Stampin’ Blends Marker and adhered it to the collar using a Glue Dot.  On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the outline of the dog house image from the Happy Tails stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink.  I stamped the fill dog house image from the Happy Tails stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink, stamping off once, on top of the outline.  I stamped the sentiment from the Happy Tails stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the top right corner of the panel. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Night of Navy mat using Snail.

I adhered the matted panel to the card front lining up the corners and centering it with the scored lines using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, only on the bottom left corner.  I adhered the punched out dog to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I stamped the dog bone image from the Happy Tails stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink on a scrap of Crumb Cake cardstock and fussy cut it using my Paper Snips.  I adhered a small panel of Real Red Regals 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to the left side of the card front using Snail.  I added the fussy cut bone using a Glue Dot.

You can see from the inside how I folded the card front panel down.  I adhered a panel of Real Red Regals 6 X 6 DSP to the inside back panel using Snail.  I stamped the sentiment from the Happy Tails stamp set in Early Espresso Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the heart image from the Happy Tails stamp set in Real Red Ink in the 4 corners.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Night of Navy mat using Snail. I adhered the matted panel to the inside of the Crumb Cake card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, making sure it’s behind the card front panel.  I stamped the paw print image from the Happy Tails stamp set in Early Espresso Ink where you can see it when the card is closed.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the dog image from the Happy Tails stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the bottom front of the envelope.  I stamped the spot image from the Happy Tails stamp set on the dog in Crumb Cake Ink, stamping off once.  I stamped the collar image from the Happy Tails stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the dog image.  I stamped the heart outline from the Happy Tails stamp set in Real Red Ink on the collar.  I stamped the pawprint image from the Happy Tails stamp set in Early Espresso Ink around the left side of the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of Real Red Regals 6 X 6 DSP to the envelope flap.

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

Stampin’ Up! Sailing Home for Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends.  How is everyone doing today?  Welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we had a Sketch Challenge. Be sure to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects .
Here is the sketch we had to work from.

Here’s my card using this weeks sketch.

My colors were inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge #336.  Here are their colors.

I also played along with Cardz 4 Guys Challenge #242.  Their theme is ‘ On, In of By The Sea’.

I started by adhering a panel of Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper to a Poppy Parade card base using Snail.  I stamped the bird image from the Stampin’ Up! Sailing Home Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink to the top of the panel.

I cut a panel of Peaceful Poppies DSP using the Stitched Rectangle Dies.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! High Tide Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the top of the panel.  On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the lighthouse image from the Sailing Home stamp set, which I colored with my Crumb Cake and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Write Markers.  I cut the image out using the Smooth Sailing Dies.  I adhered the lighthouse image to the DSP using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered a piece of the Braided Burlap Trim to the back of the artwork using Glue Dots and then adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Frosted Epoxy Droplets, which I colored using my Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends Marker.

On the inside I stamped the lighthouse image from the Sailing Home stamp set, which I colored using my Crumb Cake and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Write Markers, on the bottom of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the bird image from the Sailing Home stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink above the lighthouse.  I did not stamp a sentiment since I wasn’t sure what I wanted to use the card for yet.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Poppy Parade mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Poppy Parade card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the lighthouse image from the Sailing Home stamp set, which I colored using my Crumb Cake and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Write Markers, on the bottom front of the envelope.  I adhered a panel of the Peaceful Poppies DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for visiting my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Now that you’ve seen my card, take a minute to hop through all our projects today.

Stampin’ Up Woven Heirlooms Sympathy

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers.  How has everyone’s week been?  The weekend is right around the corner, I hope you are starting to make some fun plans.

For today I have a quick and easy card for you, despite the layers.  These cards unfortunately I always like to have on hand.  Here’s my card.

My card played along with a few challenges today.  I joined in with TGIF Color Challenge #228.  Here are their colors.

I played along with Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge #522.  Here is their sketch.

I also played along with Inspire. Create. Theme Challenge #051.  Here is their theme.

I started by embossing a panel of Merry Merlot cardstock with my Subtle 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the card front to a Merry Merlot card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered a panel of Merry Merlot Neutrals 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Very Vanilla mat using Snail.  I adhered the matted DSP to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small panel of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Woven Heirlooms Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I stamped the scroll image from the Woven Heirlooms stamp set in Merry Merlot Ink on the top and bottom of the panel.  I adhered the sentiment panel to a Very Vanilla mat using Snail.  I adhered the matted sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I colored 2 Rhinestone Basic Jewels using my Dark Basic Black Stampin’ Blend Marker and adhered them to the scroll image.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Woven Heirlooms stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink to the center of a Very Vanilla panel.  I stamped the scroll images from the Woven Heirlooms stamp set in Merry Merlot Ink around the Very Vanilla panel.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to the inside of the Merry Merlot card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I adhered a panel of the Merry Merlot Neutrals 6 X 6 DSP to the envelope flap and the front of the envelope.

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

Stampin’ Up Happy Tails Pet Sympathy Card

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Anyone do anything fun?  I worked, but not my normal job.  I got to work at the Hungry Hound Dog Bakery we have here in town.  It’s so much fun working there, the puppies come in to visit and spend their money on treats and toys.  We bake all our own treats on the premises and they are delicious, I’ve tried quite a few.  They are all made with human edible products that are animal safe.

My card for today is NOT one I like to make.  My daughter’s best friend’s dog died last week.  It was a sudden thing, she wasn’t even sick and so very sad.  Her dog was the only dog my dog would tolerate staying in the same room with.  My dog is petrified of other dogs since she was attached when by one when she was a little puppy.  She doesn’t mind them through a fence, that she likes.  We are all going to miss JJ tremendously.   Here’s my card for today.

My card played along with CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge #334.  Here is their sketch.

My colors were inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge #321.  Here are their colors.  Aren’t they gorgeous together.

I started by adhering a panel of the Come To Gather Designer Series Paper to a Pretty Peacock mat using Snail.  I adhered the card front to a Soft Suede card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the dog image from the Happy Tails Photopolymer Stamp Set on a scrap of Whisper White cardstock in Soft Suede Ink and colored her in using my Light Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Marker.  I punched the dog out using my Dog Builder Punch.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the outline image of the dog house from the Happy Tails stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink.  I stamped the 2nd step of the dog house from the Happy Tails stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink, stamping off once, on top of the 1st one.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pretty Peacock mat using Snail.  I adhered the punched out dog to the Whisper White panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I colored the heart, which punched out when I punched the dog out, with my Dark Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends Marker and adhered it to the dog using a Glue Dog.  I adhered the artwork to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I stamped the sentiment from the Happy Tails stamp set on a thin strip of Whisper White cardstock in Cherry Cobbler Ink.  I stamped the pawprints from the Happy Tails stamp set on either side of the sentiment in Soft Suede Ink.  I adhered the sentiment strip to a Pretty Peacock mat using Snail and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from Happy Tails stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink in the center of a Whisper Whist panel.  I stamped the paw print image from the Happy Tails stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the bottom left of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pretty Peacock mat using Snail and then to the inside of my Soft Suede card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the dog image from the Happy Tails stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the front of the envelope and colored it in the same as I did for the card.  I stamped the paw print image from the Happy Tails stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the envelope front too.  I adhered a panel of Come To Gather DSP 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 Path of Petals for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to Fun Fold Friday.  The weekend is upon us already.  Has anyone made any plans for the weekend?  I’m really hoping to get in a few hours of craft time, I’m in desperate need of it.  I spent all day yesterday at the shore, it was simply gorgeous.  The air temp was perfect, not too hot, the water was a beautiful 76 degrees and I was able to relax listening to the waves crashing and the seagulls squawking.  It was high tide most of the day so it was a bit difficult finding shells and sea glass.  The ocean was actually very rough, it knocked my daughter right off her feet and she went tumbling in the waves.  She’s fine, just a little bruised up and it knocked the wind out of her.

Onto today’s card.  I have another Z-Fold card for you, but this time it’s turned around.  Here’s my card.

I started by scoring an Old Olive card base at 5 1/2″ and 2 3/4″ to make the Z-Fold.  I adhered a panel of the gorgeous Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper the front of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Path of Petals Photopolymer Stamp Set on a Very Vanilla Panel in Crumb Cake Ink.  I stamped the leafy image from the Path of Petals stamp set in Old Olive Ink, stamping off once, around the sentiment.

I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Rococo Rose mat using Snail.  I adhered the matted panel to the folded card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals only on the left side of the panel.

I adhered a panel of the Pressed Petals Specialty DSP to the inside right of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  This is the panel that you see when the card is closed.  On a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Path of Petals stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink.  I stamped the leafy image from the Path of Petals stamp set around the sentiment in Old Olive Ink stamping off once.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to the inside left of the Old Olive card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I stamped the leafy image from the Path of Petals stamp set in Old Olive Ink on the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of the 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!!  Have a great weekend everyone.

Subscribe for the August kit from July 11–August 10

What’s the old saying? Variety is the spice of life? At Paper Pumpkin, we like to mix things up and keep our customer’s crafting experience fresh and fun. We plan each kit carefully, allowing them to check as many creative boxes as possible while keeping our projects simple—so they can explore the world of paper crafting with confidence. With this in mind, we are bringing an elegant fall gift packaging kit to Paper Pumpkin fans this August.
Now, it’s no secret that our subscribers love cardmaking. So when we offer treat or gift packaging, you generally like to make a few card alternates with the kit. That’s why THIS month we decided to bring you the best of both worlds with the Gift of Fall Add-On Bundle. This coordinating product will allow you to turn your Gift of Fall gift packaging into cards in an easy and inexpensive way.

  • The August kit includes 6 gift bags and 12 gift tags. To receive this kit you must subscribe by August 10.
  • The Gift of Fall Add-On Bundle is a separate purchase for those who would like to convert their August Paper Pumpkin kit into cards.
  • The Gift of Fall Add-On Bundle card designs offer a great sneak of the designs and elements to come in the August kit.
  • Once you have completed the August kit, you will have extra kit components so you can easily combine them with the add-on without having to purchase additional kits.
  • Just as you would with any other Stampin’ Up! product, you will need to purchase the add-on bundle via OEX or the online store. You will not be able to add it to a Paper Pumpkin subscription purchase.
  • The price for the add-on bundle is $10.00 usd/$13.00 cad and is available for Paper Pumpkin subscribers only. This add-on is available beginning August 1, while supplies last!
  • The add-on bundle is a cash and carry item
  • Click Here to subscribe. Supplies may be limited toward the end of the subscription period.

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!!
