Stampin’ Up! Lighthouse Point for The Card Concepts

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends.  I hope everyone is having a wonderful week. Did you ever have one of those days where you can’t get out of your own way? That was my day yesterday. Because of that, I had a very productive day. I had a hair appointment in the morning. I followed that by going grocery shopping (which I hate to do anymore). When I got home, I had no crafting mojo, so I went outside to weed 1 of my flower gardens. That led to weeding 3 of them, cutting some tree branches and cleaning up around my yard. Before I knew it my son was leaving for work, which was 3pm. I finished up outside and went in to do laundry. I finally was able to sit down to work on my blog when I got a text that my daughter was on the train on her way home from school. I picked her up and then it was off to Costco. Needless to say, I never got to my craft table, but I got a lot done and by the end of the day I was content that I did something on my day off.

It’s time for another inspiration challenge for The Card Concepts. The inspiration photo is Red, White & Blue. Here is my card that was inspired from the challenge photo.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Lighthouse Point Bundle along with the Stampin’ Up! Ocean Front Photopolymer Stamp Set, the Stampin’ Up! On The Horizon Cling Stamp Set and the Stamin’ Up! Gentle Waves Cling Stamp Set for my Clean Graphic Card. I was inspired by the colors from the inspiration photo.

I hope you will take a moment to visit The Card Concepts and join us for our challenge #176.  How are you inspired by this photo?

I started by using my Water Painter with Tahitian Tide Ink and coloring the top of a Basic White panel. I stamped the bottom of the panel using the Gentle Waves stamp with Starry Sky Ink. I stamped a strip of Sahara Sand cardstock using the sand image from the Ocean Front stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink. I tore the panel to give it the sand image. I adhered the strip of Sahara Sand cardstock to the bottom of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I cut the panel using my Deckled Rectangle Die. I adhered the panel to a Starry Sky card base. I stamped the bird image from the On The Horizon stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the top of the panel.

Using my Lighthouse Dies, I cut the solid lighthouse from a panel of Sweet Sorbet cardstock. I cut the detailed lighthouse from a panel of Basic White cardstock. I cut the lighthouse top from a panel of Basic Black cardstock and the rail from a scrap of Silver Foil Paper. I cut the top of the solid Sweet Sorbet lighthouse with my Paper Snips. I adhered the lighthouse top to the solid panel. I adhered the detailed lighthouse over the Sweet Sorbet lighthouse using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the Silver Foil rail to the top of the detailed panel. I adhered the lighthouse to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Lighthouse Point Photopolymer Stamp Set in Starry Sky Ink. I cut the sentiment out using my Lighthouse Dies. I tied a Carrick Bend Knot using my Crumb Cake Bakers Twine from the Baker’s Twine Essential Pack. I adhered the knot to the sentiment and adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Pebbles Enamel Shapes around the lighthouse and Faux Sea Glass Shapes along the sand.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Lighthouse Point stamp set in Starry Sky Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the lighthouse image from the Lighthouse Point stamp set in Sweet Sorbet Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper, on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the detailed lighthouse image over the solid image in Sweet Sorbet Ink. I stamped the splotch image from the Lighthouse Point stamp set in Tahitian Tide Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper, over the sentiment. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Sweet Sorbet mat and then to the inside of the Starry Sky card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the lighthouse image from the Lighthouse Point stamp set in Sweet Sorbet Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper, on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the 2022-2024 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Cup Of Tea Thanks

Good Monday morning my stamping friends and Happy National World Turtle Day. My daughter LOVES turtles so I know this day LOL. How was everyone’s weekend? I enjoyed my day off yesterday. After doing a little cleaning and weeding I got to spend some time at my craft table. I could weed every day and those weeds just don’t go away. My neighbors probably think I’m crazy out there weeding at 6am. I bring my dog out to the backyard and while I’m waiting for her, I pull some weeds. I have multiple flower gardens in my backyard and there always seems to be weeds in them no matter how much I try. Once everything really starts to bloom, I’m hoping you won’t really be able to see the weeds.

I have a quick card today using one of my favorite sets from the new 2022-2023 Annual Catalog. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Cup Of Tea Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Tea Boutique 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper and the Amazing Thanks Dies for my card today.

My design is from the Hand Stamped Sentiments Sketch Challenge #389.

I started by adhering a panel of the Tea Boutique DSP to a Petal Pink card base. I adhered a panel of Calypso Coral cardstock to the card front using Stampin’ Seal

I cut a panel of Basic White cardstock into a banner using my Paper Snips. I stamped the teacup image from the Cup of Tea stamp set in Gray Granite Ink on the banner. I stamped the leaf image from the Cup of Tea stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink on the top of the cup. I colored the teacup using my Petal Pink and Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the banner to the card front. I added a few Fun Flowers Resin Shapes to the stamped leaf image.

Using my Amazing Thanks Dies I cut the sentiment from a panel of Calypso Coral cardstock. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Cup of Tea stamp set in Gray Granite Ink on a Basic White Panel. I stamped the teacup image from the Cup of Tea stamp set on the bottom of the panel in Gray Granite Ink. I stamped the leaf image on top of the teacup in Soft Sea Foam Ink. I colored the image using my Petal Pink and Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a strip of the Tea Boutique DSP to the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Calypso Coral mat and then to the inside of the Petal Pink card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the teacup image from the Cup of Tea stamp set in Gray Granite Ink on the envelope front. I stamped the leaf image from the Cup of Tea stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink on the cup. I colored the image using my Petal Pink and Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of the Tea Boutique 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! Cottage Rose Thank You

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends and welcome to the weekend. I hope you’ll be staying cool today. It’s supposed to hit near 100 here in central NJ today, but it’ll cool down Sunday to the mid 90’s. What happen to spring?

For today’s card I let the Designer Series Paper and Embossing Folder do all the work for me. I added a sentiment, and it was done. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Cottage Rose Cling Stamp Set along with the Pretty Prints Designer Series Paper and the Stampin’ Up! Go To Greetings Cling Stamp Set for my card today.

I started by embossing a panel of Pretty Prints DSP using the Painted Posies 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the embossed panel to a Basic White mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the layered panel to a Blackberry Bliss card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the large rose image from the Cottage Rose stamp set in Rich Razzleberry Ink, stamping off 3 times on scrap paper. I stamped the sentiment from the Cottage Rose stamp set in Rich Razzleberry Ink over the rose image. I cut the sentiment out using my Designer Tags Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

using my Designer Tags Dies, I cut out 2 of the sprigs and the butterfly from a panel of Rose Gold Specialty Paper. I adhered the sprigs behind the tag using a tiny amount of Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the die-cut butterfly to the top of the panel using Glue Dots.

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Go To Greetings stamp set in Rich Razzleberry Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the large rose image from the Cottage Rose stamp set in Rich Razzleberry Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper, on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Blackberry Bliss mat and then to the inside of the Blackberry Bliss card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the large rose image from the Cottage Rose stamp set in Rich Razzleberry Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the Pretty Prints 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! Bouquet of Thanks for Fun Fold Friday with Video Tutorial

Good Friday morning my stamping friends welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How are you all doing today? Are you ready for the weekend? I hope you are making some fun plans. It’s supposed to be a hot one here, last I heard was the upper 90’s.

Today’s card I made on my Facebook Live video on Wednesday. If you were able to join me or watched the replay, thank you. If you’d like to watch my video and stamp along, the measurements are below along with the links to my Facebook page and my YouTube channel. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Bouquet of Thanks Cling Stamp Set along with the Stampin’ Up! Charming Sentiments Photopolymer Stamp Set and the 2022-2024 In-Color 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my easel card today.

I started by adhering a panel of the 2022-2024 In-Color DSP to a Sweet Sorbet mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I scored & folded the Crumb Cake card base as listed below. I adhered the smaller panel of Sweet Sorbet cardstock to the top section of the card base front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the layered panel to the bottom section of the card base front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped the floral image from the Bouquet of Thanks stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on a panel of Crumb Cake cardstock. I stamped the sentiment banner from the floral image on a panel of Shimmery White cardstock in Soft Suede Ink. I fussy cut the banner using my Paper Snips. I adhered the fussy cut banner to the stamped panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the artwork to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small panel of Shimmer White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Charming Sentiments stamp set in Soft Suede Ink. I adhered the sentiment to a Sweet Sorbet mat using Stampin’ Seal.

On the inside I stamped the top of the floral image from the Bouquet of Thanks stamp set in Soft Suede Ink, stamping off twice on scrap paper, on the side of the Shimmery White panel. I adhered the Shimmery White panel to a Sweet Sorbet mat and then to the inside of the Crumb Cake card base. I figured out where I wanted to put the small sentiment and adhered it using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the flowers from the Bouquet of Thanks stamp set on the envelope front in Soft Suede Ink. I adhered a panel of the 2022-2024 In-Color 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.

Stampin’ Up! Mischievous Mice Thanks

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend? It was a rainy one here Saturday but turned out to be pretty nice on Sunday. Yesterday after our team meeting, I finally got some of my Paper Pumpkin kits finished. I’m determined to get myself caught up with all the kits I have and then maybe I can get them done as they come in each month. I was able to finish 3 kits, which was 27 cards. I have one kit sitting on my table all taken apart to finish after work today.

Today’s card uses the basics, Stamps, Ink and Paper. I thought I’d do something simple for a change, lol. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Mischievous Mice Cling Host Stamp Set for my card today.

My design is from Inspire. Create. Challenge #116.

I started by stamping the mouse image from the Mischievous Mice stamp set on a panel of Basic White cardstock in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image in using my Crumb Cake, Flirty Flamingo, Gray Granite, Smoky Slate and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I stamped the splatter image from the Stampin’ Up! Color & Contour Photopolymer Stamp Set in So Saffron Ink on the 2 corners of the panel.

I stamped the sentiment from the Mischievous Mice stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink next to the mouse image on the card front. I adhered the card front to a Basic White Thick card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Mischievous Mice stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the splatter image from the Color & Contour stamp set in So Saffron Ink on the 2 corners of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to the inside of the Basic White Thick card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the mouse image and the sentiment from the Mischievous Mice stamp set on the envelope front in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of Subtle 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to the envelope flap.

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

Stampin’ Up! Shaded Summer Tea for The Card Concepts

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. We’re halfway through the week already and on our way to the weekend. I hope everyone is having a wonderful week.

It’s time for another inspiration challenge for The Card Concepts. The inspiration photo is May Flowers. Here is my card that was inspired from the challenge photo.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Shaded Summer Cling Stamp Set along with the Stampin’ Up! Cup of Tea Photopolymer Stamp Set and Tea Boutique 6X 6 Designer Series Paper for my Clean and Layered Card. I was inspired by the beautiful flowers and colors from the inspiration photo.

I hope you will take a moment to visit The Card Concepts and join us for our challenge #175.  How are you inspired by this photo?

I started by embossing a panel of Basic White cardstock using the Pretty Flowers Embossing Folder. I marked the panel on the right side down 2 1/4″. I cut from the bottom left corner to the 2 1/4″ mark using my Paper Trimmer. I adhered the embossed panel to a Calypso Coral card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the layered panel to a Calypso Coral card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered a panel of Tea Boutique DSP to the center of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I colored the smaller floral stamp from the Shaded Summer stamp set using my Calypso Coral, Petal Pink and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Write Markers and stamped the image on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I cut the image out using the coordinating die from the Summer Shadow Dies. I cut the solid teacup from the Teacup Dies from a panel of Tea Boutique DSP. I adhered the flower image to the back of the teacup using a Glue Dot and then to the card front on the DSP using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the tea tag image from the Cup of Tea stamp set in Pale Papaya Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the sentiment from the Cup of Tea stamp set inside the tag in Calypso Coral Ink. I cut the tag out using the Teacup Dies. Using my Label Me Fancy Punch, I punched the small hole in the top of the tag. I colored a piece of White Baker’s Twine, from the Baker’s Twine Essential Pack, using my Pale Papaya Stampin’ Blends Markers and threaded it through the hole on the tag. I adhered the Baker’s Twine behind the tag and behind the cut with a small piece of Tear & Tape. I added a few Calypso Coral Polished Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Shaded Summer stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink on a Basic White panel. I colored the small floral image from the Shaded Summer stamp set using my Calypso Coral, Petal Pink and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends Markers and stamped it on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Petal Pink mat and then to the inside of the Calypso Coral card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the floral image from the Shaded Summer stamp set on the envelope front colored the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of Tea Boutique 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! Bottled Happiness

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. Happy Mother’s Day to all. I hope you get to have a relaxing, enjoyable day. I’ll be at work, and I have this feeling it’s going to be a slow day with all the rain we are having right now.

I have a quick card for you today using some of the new 2022-2024 In-Colors along with new products from the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Bottled Happiness Bundle along with the Stampin’ Up! Go To Greetings Cling Stamp Set and the Tea Boutique 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by stamping the floral image from the Stampin’ Up! Bottled Happiness Photopolymer Stamp Set on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I first stamped the leaf and flower center image in Parakeet Party Ink towards the top of the panel. I stamped the flower image over the leaf image in Sweet Sorbet Ink. On a small panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the outline bottle image from the Bottled Happiness stamp set in Orchid Oasis Ink. I stamped the bottle fill image over the outlined image in Orchid Oasis Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper. I punched the bottle out using the Vintage Bottle Punch

On the top of the Basic White panel, I stamped the sentiment from the Bottled Happiness stamp set in Orchid Oasis Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to an Orchid Oasis mat. I adhered a panel of Tea Boutique DSP to a Sweet Sorbet card base using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to the base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I tied a piece of Parakeet Party Baker’s Twine from the 2022-2024 In- Color Baker’s Twine Pack, around the neck of the bottle and tied a bow. I adhered the bottle below the stamped floral image using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Go To Greetings stamp set in Orchid Oasis Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the floral image from the Bottled Happiness stamp set in Parakeet Party and Sweet Sorbet Ink on the top of the panel. I adhered a strip of the Tea Boutique DSP to the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to an Orchid Oasis mat and then to the inside of the Sweet Sorbet card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the floral image from the Bottled Happiness stamp set in Parakeet Party and Sweet Sorbet Inks on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the Tea Boutique 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! Nature’s Prints Fun Fold Video Tutorial

Good Friday morning my stamping friends welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. 14 years ago today we brought home my little fur baby Jasmine. She was so small, loved to be held and would curl up in my lap. She’s much bigger now and can’t do that, but she still loves to lay her head on my lap. She has brought us so much joy over the past 14 years, I can’t imagine not having her around. She has been the most loyal companion I’ve ever had, sticking by my side if I’m inside making cards, blogging or outside gardening. She was my Mother’s Day gift 14 years ago. Happy Gotch Day Jasmine.

Are you ready for the weekend? I hope you are making some fun plans. I’ll be working Sunday this weekend. Yes, I have to work on Mother’s Day. I make up the schedule for all the cashiers a month in advance. For some reason I thought next Sunday was Mother’s Day. It’s ok though, I’m working with a friend of mine and we always have a lot of fun together.

Today’s card I made on my Facebook Live video on Wednesday. If you were able to join me or watched the replay, thank you. If you’d like to watch my video and stamp along, the measurements are below along with the links to my Facebook page and my YouTube channel. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Sun Prints Suite Collection for my card today.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Prints Cling Stamp Set in VersaMark Ink on a panel of Night of Navy cardstock. I immediately sprinkled it with my White Embossing Powder from the Basic Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I cut the sentiment out using the Natural Prints Dies. On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the wheat grass image from the Nature’s Prints stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink. I cut the images out using my Natural Prints Dies. Using my Natural Prints Dies, I cut 4 of the larger sprigs from a panel of Sahara Sand cardstock and 2 of the small sprigs from a panel of Pacific Point cardstock.

Here is my template of how to score and fold the card base. I suggest not using Basic White Thick cardstock like I did. It’s harder to fold on the score lines properly. When I tried this on regular cardstock, all my score lines folded perfectly. I scored and folded my Basic White Thick cardstock as listed in the above photo.

For the front Sun Prints DSP panel, I measured down from the top right 1 7/8″. I cut from the 1 7/8″ mark to the top left corner using my Paper Trimmer. I adhered the panels to the front of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. For the back Sun Prints DSP panel, I measured up from the bottom left 1 7/8″. I cut from the 1 7/8″ mark to the bottom right corner using my Paper Trimmer. I adhered the panels to the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. For the center Basic White panel, I measured down from the top left 1 7/8″ and made a small mark. I measured up from the bottom right 1 7/8″ and made a little mark. I stamped the sentiment from the Nature’s Prints stamp set below where I would be cutting the panel in Pacific Point Ink. I stamped the floral images from the Nature’s Prints stamp set in Pacific Point Ink, stamping off twice on scrap paper, on the top and bottom of the panel. I stamped the wheat grass image from the Nature’s Print stamp set in Saraha Sand Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper, on the side and bottom of the panel. I cut from the pencil marks on the Basic White panel to the opposite corners using my Paper Trimmer. I adhered the 3 pieces of Basic White cardstock to the inside of the Basic Whtie Thick card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

For the belly band, I embossed the strip of Basic White cardstock using the Fern 3E Embossing Folder. To do this, I put the strip in the folder on an angle and ran it through my Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine. I loosely wrapped the belly band around the card base and adhered it using Tear & Tape. I arranged the die cut pieces the way I wanted them and adhered them together using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the sentiment over the top of the small collage using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the collage to the belly band, over the seam where I adhered it together, using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Iridescent Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the sentiment panel.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the floral image from the Nature’s Prints stamp set in Pacific Point Ink, stamping off twice on scrap paper, on the envelope front. I stamped the wheat grass image from the Nature’s Prints stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper, next to the floral image. I adhered a panel of the Sun Prints 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 items used for today’s card will be available May 3rd. I hope you will CASE this card and please feel free to post it in the comments of my Facebook page under my post. I’d love to see your take on the card. The list of measurements are below if you’d like to stamp along while watching the video. You can watch my video on my Facebook page Here.

You can also view the video on my YouTube channel Here. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Wild & Sweet Koala Fun Fold for 2022-2023 Annual Catalog Blog Hop

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends and welcome to our 2022-2023 Annual Catalog Blog Hop. If you are hoping over from Akiko Sudano’s blog, thank you for stopping by. If you are starting with me, I hope you will hop through to see everyone’s projects and hopefully we will inspire you. We all used different sets from the upcoming catalog that goes live in just 7 days, next Tuesday YAY!!! Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Wild & Sweet Cling Stamp Set along with the Heart & Home Designer Series Paper for my fun fold card. This set doesn’t come with sentiments, so I paired it up with the Stampin’ Up! Shaded Summer Cling Stamp Set.

I started by scoring and folding the panel of Basic Gray cardstock as stated below for my Z-Fold card. I adhered a panel of Heart & Home DSP to a Smoky Slate mat and then to the card front using multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the koala image from the Wild & Sweet stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image using my Crumb Cake, Smoky Slate and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image out using the 3rd largest Scalloped Contours Dies. I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals only on the left side of the artwork.

On a small panel of Basic Gray cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Shaded Summer stamp set in Versamark Ink. I immediately sprinkled it with my White Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I adhered the sentiment to the left side of the artwork using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Classic Matte Dots to the card front.

On the inside I adhered a panel of Heart & Home DSP to the right side of a Smoky Slate mat using Stampin’ Seal. On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Shaded Summer stamp set in Basic Gray Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to the left side of the Smoky Slate mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to the inside of the Basic Gray card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium envelope. I adhered a strip of the Heart & Home DSP to the envelope front and a panel 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 and see everyone’s projects today.

Stampin’ Up! Hand-Penned Petals for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. I hope everyone is doing well today. If you are hopping over from Akiko Sudano’s blog, thank you for stopping by. This week we have a Sketch Challenge. Here is my card using this week’s Sketch.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Hand-Penned Petals Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper for my card today.

Here is our sketch for this week.

I started by adhering a panel of Hand Penned DSP to a Garden Green card base. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the outline floral image from the Hand-Penned Petals stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I adhered a Post-It note to the panel and stamped the floral image once. I flipped the panel over and adhered the Post-It note again and stamped the floral image a second time. I stamped the leaves in Garden Green Ink. I stamped the flowers in Daffodil Delight, Highland Heather and Pool Party Inks.

I embossed the panel using my Timeworn Type 3d Embossing Folder. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Cactus Cuties Photopolymer Stamp Set in Versamark Ink on a panel of Garden Green cardstock. I immediately sprinkled it with my White Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I cut the sentiment out using my Waves Dies.

I threaded White Bakers Twine through the sentiment and adhered it to the back with Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a couple Brushed Brass Butterflies and a Bumblebee Trinket to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Hand-Penned Petals stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the outlined floral image from the Hand-Penned Petals stamp set on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the leaves in Gaden Green Ink and the flowers in Daffodil Delight, Highland Heather and Pool Party Inks. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Garden Green mat and then to the inside of the Garden Green card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the outlined floral image from the Hand Penned Petals stamp set on the envelope front in Tuxedo Black Ink. I stamped the leaves and flowers the same as i did for the card front. I adhered a panel of Hand Penned 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 and see everyone’s projects today. If you click on the Next Blog button, you’ll go to Tara’s page. Or you can just click on the names below to go directly to all their blogs! Happy Hopping!!
