Stampin’ Up Pocketful of Happiness Thank You

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers.  How is everyone doing today?  I got to spend a couple hours in my craft room last night during the storm we had.  I love when I get some quality time stamping and what better time than when it’s storming outside.

For today’s card I did very little stamping and mostly die cutting.  Here’s my card.

I joined in with a couple challenges today.  First off is CAS(E) This Sketch challenge #330.  Here is their sketch.

Next I played along with Color My Heart Color Dare #351  Theirs is a TicTacToe challenge. I went diagonally from the bottom left up to top right. Here is their challenge.

I also joined in with Just Us Girls Challenge #496.  Their challenge is a Trend Week.  Here is their challenge.

I started by die cutting the Thank You Die out of Whisper White cardstock and Basic Black cardstock.  I adhered the Whisper White to the top of the Basic Black off setting it a little for a shadow effect.  I die cut a piece of Pacific Point cardstock using the Petal Labels Dies and then using my Paper Snips I cut the die cut pieces off. I embossed the Pacific Point cardstock using the Scripty 3D Embossing Folder.  Using the Petal Labels Dies again, I cut another out of a piece of Silver Foil Sheet.   I adhered the Pacific Point panel to the top of the Silver Foil panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a Highland Heather card base I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Pocketful of Happiness Cling Stamp Set in VersaMark Ink.  I immediately sprinkled it with Shimmer White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I adhered the layered card front to the Highland Heather card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the die cut Thank You to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the floral image from the Pocketful of Happiness stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the top and bottom corners of a Whisper White panel.  I colored the image in using my Highland Heather Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I chose not to add a sentiment on the inside so that I could write my own note.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pacific Point mat using Snail and then adhered it to the inside of the Highland Heather card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the floral images from the Pocketful of Happiness stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front and flap.  I colored the flowers in using my Highland Heather Stampin’ Blends Markers.

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

Stampin’ Up Abstract Impressions Thank You Card

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  Hope you are all doing well today and your are having a good week.

Sometimes we get so hung up on the new items in the new 2019-2020 catalog that we forget about carry over sets.  For today’s card I used one of the carry over sets,  the Stampin’ Up Abstract Impressions Photopolymer Stamp Set.  Take a look.

I started by adhering a panel of Flirty Flamingo Brights 6 X 6 Designer Series to a Granny Apple Green card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered a strip of Soft Sea Foam cardstock across the center of the card.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the stem images from the Abstract Impressions stamp set in Granny Apple Green and Soft Sea Foam Inks.  I stamped the first part of the flower image from the Abstract Impressions stamp set in Flirty Flamingo Ink stamping off once.  I stamped the second step of the flower image from the Abstract Impressions stamp set in Flirty Flamingo Ink.  I cut the artwork out using the largest circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies.

I curved the sentiment from the Abstract Impressions stamp set on one of my blocks and stamped it in Granny Apple Green Ink on the top of the circle.  One of the great things about Photopolymer stamps is that you can change the shape of them very easily.  I stamped the small butterfly from the Stampin’ Up Butterfly Gala Photopolymer Stamp Set in Granny Apple Green Ink on a scrap of Soft Sea Foam card stock and punched it out using the Butterfly Duet Punch.  I stamped the butterfly body from the Butterfly Gala stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the punched butterfly. I stamped the butterfly antenna from the Butterfly Gala stamp set on the artwork in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink then adhered the butterfly to the artwork using a Glue Dot.   I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the stems and flowers from the Abstract Impressions stamp set, across the bottom of a Whisper White panel, the same as I did for the artwork on the card front.  I stamped the sentiment from the Abstract Impressions stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink above the flowers on the Whisper White panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Soft Sea Foam mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Granny Apple Green card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the stems and flowers from the Abstract Impressions stamp set on the envelope front the same as I did for the card.  I adhered a panel of Granny Apple Green Brights 6 X 6 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 Free As A Bird Thank You Card

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  How has everyone’s week started off?  Before I get started, don’t forget to check out my ordering special down below.  There’s less than a week to take advantage of it.

For today’s card I used a few different techniques, Embossing, Masking, Layering, Coloring, you get the drift.  Here’s my card.

I started by stamping the larger bird from the Stampin’ Up Free As A Bird Cling Stamp Set on a Whisper White panel in Early Espresso Ink.  I stamped the flowers and the leaves from the Free As A Bird stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on top of the panel using the Masking Technique.  I stamped the sentiment from the Free As A Bird stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on an angle on the top of the Whisper White panel.  I colored the bird, flowers and leaves in using my Calypso Coral, Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, Petal Pink and Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the artwork to a Pool Party mat using Snail.

I adhered 2 panels of Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper onto Pool Party Mats using Snail.  I embossed my Pool Party card front using the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder to give a little background texture.

I adhered the 2 matted DSP panels to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the matted artwork on top of the DSP using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the card front to a Pool Party card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the bird from the Free As A Bird stamp set in Early Espresso Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel stamping off 4 times.  I stamped the sentiment from the Free As A Bird stamp set over the top of the bird.  I stamped the flowers and leaves from the Free As A Bird stamp set in Early Espresso Ink in the corners of the Whisper White panel.  I colored the flowers and leaves in using my Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, Petal Pink and Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel 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 bird, flowers and leaves from the Free As A Bird stamp set on the envelope front in Early Espresso Ink and colored them in the same as I did for the card.  I adhered a panel of  Bird Ballad 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 Daisy Lane Delight Thank You Card

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  How is you week going?  I spent over 6 hours on the beach yesterday and it was simply wonderful.  The air was in the 90’s and the water was a chilly 70.  I found lots of sea glass, which seems to be a lot harder to find these days.  The only bad thing was the sand was so hot It burned our feet, other than that, it was a perfect day.  I can’t wait to go back again real soon.  Is anyone making plans for the 4th of July?

I have another quick and easy card for you today where I let the Designer Series Paper do most of the work for me.  Here’s my card.

I have combined the Stampin’ Up Daisy Lane Cling Stamp Set and the Stampin’ Up  Daisy Delight Cling Stamp Set on my card today.  I started by adhering a panel of Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper to a Mossy Meadow card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped the sentiment from the Daisy Delight stamp set in VersaMark Ink on the bottom of the Mossy Meadow panel. I immediately sprinkled it with Shimmer White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I wrapped a piece of the Mossy Meadow Linen Thread from the Magnolia Lane Ribbon Combo Pack around the card front twice.  I adhered the card front to a Mossy Meadow card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the smaller daisy from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Flirty Flamingo Ink 3 times.  I punched the daisies out using the Medium Daisy Punch.  I adhered the daisies together using Glue Dots and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a Perennial Essence Floral Center to the daisy.

On the inside I stamped the stem from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink, stamping off 3 times, on a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the daisy from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Flirty Flamingo Ink on the stem stamping it off twice.  I stamped the sentiment from the Daisy Delight stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink in the center of the Whisper White panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Mossy Meadow card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the stem from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped the daisy from the Daisy Lane on the stem in Flirty Flamingo Ink  I adhered a panel of the Perennial Essence 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 Path of Petals Thank You Card

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers  How is everyone doing today?  I’m taking a day off.  I’m heading to the beach for the day and I can’t wait.  A whole day of relaxing in the sun and walking along the water looking for shells.  It’s suppose to be a gorgeous day here, fingers crossed.

For today I have a very quick and easy card for you.  I’ve used the Stampin’ Up Path of Petals Bundle and the Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper.  I’ve let the DSP do most of the work for me today.  Here’s my card.

I started by adhering a panel of the Pressed Petals Specialty DSP to a Thick Very Vanilla card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small piece of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Path of Petals Photopolymer Stamp Set in Rococo Rose Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using the Petal Labels Dies.  I cut the mat for the sentiment out of a piece of Rococo Rose cardstock using the Petal Labels Dies.

I adhered the Very Vanilla oval to the Rococo Rose mat using Snail and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Path of Petals stamp set in Rococo Rose Ink on a Very Vanilla panel.  I stamped the 3 part floral images from the Path of Petals stamp set in Daffodil Delight, Merry Merlot and Old Olive Inks on the side of the Very Vanilla panel.  I colored the flowers in using my Rococo Rose Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to the inside of the Thick Very Vanilla card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete 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 the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up Garden Shed Thank You Card

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  How has your week started out? Can you believe we are already at the last week of June?

For today I have a very clean and simple card for you.  This is as simple as I can get,  Paper, Ink and Stamp, perfect for the beginner stamper.  Here’s my card.

My card played along with the Fab Friday Challenge #166.  Their challenge was to use the 2019-2021 In-Colors.

I started with a Whisper White card front and stamped the largest image from the Stampin’ Up Garden Shed Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I also stamped the small flower pot image from the Garden Shed stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the card front.

I colored the images in using my Pretty Peacock, Purple Posy, Rococo Rose and Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers.  Since we don’t have a Terracotta Tile Stampin’ Blend Marker yet, I used the Terracotta Tile Re-inker and my Aqua Painter filled with alcohol.

I stamped the sentiment from the Garden Shed stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the top of the card front.  I adhered the card front to a Pretty Peacock card base using Snail.

On the inside I stamped the flower pot and watering can image from the Garden Shed stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a Whisper White panel stamping off 3 times.  I stamped the sentiment from the Garden Shed stamp set over the top of the lightly stamped image in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel 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 flower pot image from the Garden Shed stamp set in Tuxedo blac Memento Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped the flowerpot and watering can image from the Garden Shed stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope flap.  I colored the images in the same as I did for the card front using my Stampin’ Blends Markers.

Thank you for visiting my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try.  This is the perfect card for a beginner stamper using just a Stamp Set, Ink and Paper.   Happy Stamping!!****************************************************************************************************

Stampin’ Up Floral Essence Thank You Card

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Did anyone do anything fun?  I went for a ‘walk’ with my husband and daughter to Duke Foundation which is right near where I live.  There are beautiful gardens, landscaping and waterfalls throughout the foundation.  There are bridges that go over different lakes on the property, one in particular leads to a meditation garden which is simply gorgeous.  Our walk ended up being over 3 hours and 7 1/2 miles long.

For today’s card I used a few different stamp sets.  I picked one for my focal image, one for the stripes and 2 different ones for the sentiments.  I like mixing stamps set on cards to give it a different look sometimes.  I was pretty happy how my card came out and all I used was Stamp, Ink and Paper, the basics to card making.   Here’s my card.

My card was inspired by 2 challenges.  First was the Colour & Sketch Challenge #326.  Here are their colors.

The other one that inspired me was the Just Add Ink Challenge #462.  Here is their sketch.

I started by stamping the sketched flower from the Stampin’ Up Floral Essence Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I stamped the solid flowers from the Floral Essence stamp set on either side of the sketched flower in Gorgeous Grape Ink using the masking technique.  I stamped the leaves from the Floral Essence stamp set around the flowers in Mossy Meadow Ink.  I stamped the center of the flowers in Sahara Sand Ink stamping off once.  I colored the sketched flower in using my Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blends Markers and my Light Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blends Marker to color the leaves.  I adhered the artwork to a Gorgeous Grape mat using Snail.

On a Whisper White card front I stamped the distressed filigree image from the Stampin’ Up Woven Heirlooms Cling Stamp Set using Calypso Coral and Mossy Meadow Inks.  I adhered the card front to a Gorgeous Grape card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the top corner of the artwork, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up New Wonders Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on an angle.  I adhered the matted artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the larger solid flower image from the Floral Essence stamp set in Calypso Coral Ink on the bottom corner of a Whisper White panel. I stamped the smaller solid flower image from the Floral Essence stamp set in Gorgeous Grape Ink, stamping off once, on either side of the Calypso Coral flower.  I stamped the leaves from the Floral Essence stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink around the flowers.  I stamped the flower centers in Sahara Sand Ink stamping off once.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Well Said Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of the Whisper White panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Gorgeous Grape card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the flowers from the Floral Essence stamp set on the envelope front the same way I did on the inner liner.  I stamped the distressed filigree image from the Woven Heirlooms stamp set on the envelope flap the same way I did on the card front.

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