Stampin’ Up! Kind & Sincere At The Farm

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. We’re halfway through the week and on our way to the weekend.

Today’s card is another one I made playing with the Sale-a-bration DSP. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Kind & Sincere 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Kind & Sincere Cling Stamp Set along with the Day At The Farm Designer Series Paper for my card today.

Stampin' Up! Kind & Sincere 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by adhering a panel of Day At The Farm DSP to a Balmy Blue card bae using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Kind & Sincere 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

I cut a panel of Day At The Farm DSP using the Stitched Rectangle Dies. I adhered the die cut panel to a Basic Black mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the larger sentiment from the Kind & Sincere stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I fussy cut the sentiment using my Paper Snips. On a thin strip of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Kind & Sincere stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I adhered the larger sentiment to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the strip sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Pastel Adhesive-Backed Sequins to the card front.

I adhered a strip of the Day At The Farm DSP to the side of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Basic Black mat then to the inside of the Balmy Blue card base.

Stampin’ Up! Thanks A Bunch Day At The Farm

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends. I hope everyone’s week has started out well.

I finally got a little time yesterday after work to sit down and create a little. I had gotten a pack of DSP from Sale-a-bration and I wasn’t sure what to do with it. Ideas finally started coming to me yesterday and I put together a few cards using it. Here is one of the cards I made.

Stampin' Up! Thanks A Bunch 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Thanks A Bunch Photopolymer Stamp Set and Day At The Farm Designer Series Paper for my card today. Both of these items are free with qualifying orders of $50 or more. Spend $100 and you can get both.

My design is from my upline Jaimie. She has been giving us a new sketch every week to work with. I’ve been having fun creating with her sketches.

Stampin' Up! Thanks A Bunch 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by adhering a panel of Day At The Farm DSP to a Garden Green card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered a small panel of Day At The Farm DSP to a Basic White mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Thanks A Bunch 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

I stamped a strip of Daffodil Delight cardstock with the splatter image from the Thanks A Bunch stamp set in Daffodil Delight Ink. I cut both ends using the Banner Pick A Punch. I adhered the banner to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Thanks A Bunch 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a thin strip of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Thanks A Bunch stamp set in Garden Green Ink. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Daffodil Delight Glossy Dots Assortment to the card front.

Stampin' Up! Thanks A Bunch 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from Thanks A Bunch stamp set in Garden Green Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the small carrot image from the Thanks A Bunch stamp set in Pumpkin Pie and Garden Green Inks on either side of the sentiment . I adhered the Basic White panel to a Garden Green mat then to the inside of the Garden Green card base.

Stampin’ Up! Seaside Bay for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? What are you all doing this weekend? I’ll be at work tomorrow all day and I’m not sure about Sunday yet. I have the day off again, YAY!!!

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 is my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Seaside Bay Fun Fold 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Seaside Bay Bundle along with the By The Bay 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my card today.

Stampin' Up! Seaside Bay Fun Fold 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by cutting 2 3/4″ off the 4 1/4″ X 11″ Sahara Sand Card front using my Paper Trimmer. I adhered a panel of By The Bay DSP to the front of the Sahara Sand card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the Sahara Sand Panel, horizontally, to the card front using Stampin’ Seal only on the left side.

Stampin' Up! Seaside Bay Fun Fold 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the bird image from the Seaside Bay stamp set in Basic Gray Ink. I stamped the sentiment from the Seaside Bay stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on the top of the panel. On a panel of Sahara Sand cardstock, I stamped the shell/sand image from the Seaside Bay stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink. After letting it dry for a bit, I stamped the sand image from the Seaside Bay stamp set in Versamark Ink. I sprinkled it with my Clear Embossing Powder and set it with my Heat Tool. I cut the panel using the sand border die from the Seaside Bay Dies. I adhered the panel to the bottom of the Basic White panel using Stampin’ Seal. From a panel of Mint Macaron cardstock I cut the sea grass using my Seaside Bay Dies. I added a little Mint Macaron Ink to the grass using my Sponge Dauber. From a panel of Sahara Sand and Pearlescent Specialty Paper I cut the shell image using the Seaside Bay Dies.

Stampin' Up! Seaside Bay Fun Fold 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

I cut the Pearlescent shell in half and adhered it to the inside of the Sahara Sand die cut shell. I brushed a little Petal Pink Ink on top of the shell using my Small Blending Brush. I adhered the sea grass die cut pieces to the Basic White panel using Glue Dots. I adhered the shell on top of the grass using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the Basic White panel the Sahara Sand card front using Stampin’ Seal. I added a Flat Adhesive-Backed Pearl inside the shell and Iridescent Pearls to the card front.

Stampin' Up! Seaside Bay Fun Fold 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside, I adhered a panel of By The Bay DSP to the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Seaside Bay stamp set in Starry Sky Ink. I stamped the shell and sand image from the Seaside Bay stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to the inside left of the card base.

Stampin' Up! Seaside Bay Fun Fold 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the larger shell image from the Seaside Bay stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of By The Bay DSP to the envelope flap.

I hope you will stop by everyone’s blog to see what they have created this week. If you are hopping over from Akiko’s blog, thank you for stopping by. This week we have Color Challenge. Here is my card using this week’s colors.

Stampin' Up! Marigold Moments Thanks 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Marigold Moments Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Country Gingham 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my card today.

These are our colors for this week.

Stampin' Up! Marigold Moments Thanks 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by adhering a panel of Country Gingham DSP to a Balmy Blue card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Marigold Moments Thanks 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the larger stem image from the Marigold Moments stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink. I stamped the leaf detail image in Mossy Meadow Ink over the leaf image. I stamped the large solid flower image from the Marigold Moments stamp set in Petal Pink Ink on top of the stems. I stamped the large detail flower image from the Marigold Moments stamp set over the solid flower image in Sweet Sorbet Ink. I cut the image out using my Stitched Rectangle Dies. I stamped the sentiment from the Marigold Moments stamp set on the top of the die cut panel in Mossy Meadow Ink.

Stampin' Up! Marigold Moments Thanks 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

I adhered the artwork to a Petal Pink mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Adhesive-Backed Milky Dots to the card front. I tied a double bow using Linen Thread and adhered it to the stem using a Glue Dot.

Stampin' Up! Marigold Moments Thanks 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Marigold Moments stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the small stem image from the Marigold Moments stamp set on the bottom of the panel in Mint Macaron Ink. I stamped the solid flower image from the Marigold Moments stamp set in Petal Pink Ink on the stem. I stamped the details flower image from the Marigold Moments stamp set in Sweet Sorbet Ink over the solid image. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Petal Pink mat then to the inside of the Balmy Blue card base.

Stampin' Up! Marigold Moments Thanks 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the small marigold image from the Marigold Moments stamp set on the envelope front the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of Country Gingham DSP to the envelope flap.

But – if you DO NOT use the Host code for your orders of less than $150 (this is the RETAIL total before Shipping & Handling), then you’ll have two options:

  1. You’ll need to call Stampin’ Up! (1-800-Stamp-Up) and ask them to add it for you. They’re very helpful and will get it done quickly!  OR….
  2. If your order was over the $50 threshold but under $150, then…you’ll forfeit that $10 ordering gift and rewards – this is the Bummer Option – and I REALLY don’t want to do this, SO please remember to add my Current Host Code.

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s New Year’s? It’s always such a lazy day for us even if we don’t do anything.

Today I used a Sale-a-bration set that you will be able to earn in just 3 short days, YAY!!! Here’s my card for today.

I started by embossing the 3″ X 4 1/2″ panel of Basic White cardstock using the splatter folder from the Stripes & Splatters 3 D Embossing Folder. I cut the embossed panel into 3 1″ strips. I adhered the strips to the 3 1/2″ x 4 3/4″ panel of Basic White cardstock.

In response to changing policies at Stampin’ Up – I’m adjusting my Ordering Gift policy as well.  I’m having to get a little more tough on the adding of Host codes when you place your order thru my Online Store.

Not to worry – you’re still going to get that $10 ordering gift for orders of $50 (before shipping & tax) or greater.  And the gift is still any 1 SU! product up to that $10 value – which includes some of our fun Host Sets!

But – if you DO NOT use the Host code for your orders of less than $150 (this is the RETAIL total before Shipping & Handling), then you’ll have two options:

  1. You’ll need to call Stampin’ Up! (1-800-Stamp-Up) and ask them to add it for you. They’re very helpful and will get it done quickly!  OR….
  2. If your order was over the $50 threshold but under $150, then…you’ll forfeit that $10 ordering gift and rewards – this is the Bummer Option – and I REALLY don’t want to do this, SO please remember to add my Current Host Code.

Stampin' Up! Country Bouquet Thanks 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by adhering a panel of Country Gingham DSP to a Mint Macaron card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered a panel of Country Flora Lane DSP to a Sweet Sorbet mat. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Country Bouquet Thanks 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

I cut the sentiment out using the largest narrow banner die from the Stylish Shaped Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin’ Up! Cup of Tea Thank You

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends, welcome to the weekend and Merry Christmas Eve. We’re down to the final countdown till Santa arrives. I’ll be at work today waiting on those crazy people (like me) that waited till the last minute to go shopping. The good thing is, we’re closing the store at 2pm. In all the years I’ve worked here (38 to be exact) I’ve NEVER worked on Christmas Eve. I’m usually home prepping our 7 fish dinner. Things have changed a bit over the past couple years.

I have a fairly quick card for you today using items from the Annual Catalog. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Cup of Tea Thanks 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Cup of Tea Bundle along with the Tea Boutique 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my card today.

My sketch is from Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge #404.

Stampin' Up! Cup of Tea Thanks 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by adhering 3 panels of Tea Boutique DSP to a Garden Green card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. ON a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the teacup image from the Cup of Tea stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I stamped the lemon slice from the Cup of Tea stamp set in Daffodil Delight Ink and the sentiment in Garden Green Ink. I cut the images out using the Teacup Dies. I colored the teacup using the Fresh Freesia and Parakeet Party Stampin’ Blends Markers.

Stampin' Up! Cup of Tea Thanks 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

I cut a panel of Basic White cardstock using the Deckled Rectangle Dies. I embossed the die cut panel using the Hive 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the panel to a Garden Green mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I wrapped a piece of Garden Green 3/8″ Ribbon from the Real Red and Garden Green Ribbon Combo Pack, around the layered panel and tied a bow.

Stampin' Up! Cup of Tea Thanks 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

I adhered a piece of White Bakers Twine from the Bakers Twine Essential Pack to the back of the teacup. I threaded it through the handle and adhered it to the back of the tag using a Glue Dot. I adhered the teacup to the layered panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the lemon slice using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Glossy Dots Assortment to the card front.

Stampin' Up! Cup of Tea Thanks 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Cup of Tea stamp set in Garden Green Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the teacup image from the Cup of Tea stamp set on the bottom of the panel in Tuxedo Black Ink and colored it using the Fresh Freesia and Parakeet Party Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the lemon slice next to the cup in Daffodil Delight Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Garden Green mat then to the inside of the Garden Green card base.

Stampin' Up! Cup of Tea Thanks 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the teacup image from the Cup of Tea stamp set on the envelope front in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image using my Fresh Freesia and Parakeet Party Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the lemon slice from the Cup of Tea stamp set next to the cup in Daffodil Delight Ink. I adhered a panel of Tea Boutique DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin' Up! Cup of Tea Thanks 7 creativestampingdesigns.com

I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas tomorrow and are able to spend some time with family and friends.

Stampin’ Up! Beautifully Happy for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. If you are starting with me, thank you. I hope you will stop by everyone’s blog to see what they have created this week. If you are hopping over from Akiko’s blog, thank you for stopping by. This week we have Sketch Challenge. Here is my card using this week’s sketch.

Stampin' Up! Beautifully Happy 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Beautifully Happy Sale-a-bration Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Design A Daydream Host Designer Series Paper for my card today.

This is our sketch for this week.

My colors are from Inspire. Create. Stamping Challenge #132.

Stampin' Up! Beautifully Happy 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by adhering a panel of Design A Daydream DSP to a Petal Pink card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Beautifully Happy 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the outline image of the large floral image from the Beautifully Happy stamp set in Early Espresso Ink. I stamped the flower fill image from the Beautifully Happy stamp set in Petal Pink Ink. I stamped the leaf fill image in Granny Apple Green Ink. I stamped the flower center and the splotch image around the flowers in Rich Razzleberry Ink. I adhered the stamped image to an Early Espresso mat. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Beautifully Happy 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a strip of Early Espresso cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Beautifully Happy stamp set in Versamark Ink. I sprinkled it with my White Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using a Stampin’ Dimensional and Stampin’ Seal. I added a few Rhinestones Basic Jewels to the card front.

Stampin' Up! Beautifully Happy 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

For the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Beautifully Happy stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the outline floral image from the Beautifully Happy stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the flower fill image in Petal Pink Ink and the leaf fill image in Granny Apple Green Ink. I stamped the flower center and the splotch image in Rish Razzleberry Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to an early Espresso mat then to the inside of the Petal Pink card base.

Stampin' Up! Beautifully Happy 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the flower image from the Beautifully Happy stamp set on the envelope front the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of Design A Daydream DSP to the envelope flap.

In response to changing policies at Stampin’ Up – I’m adjusting my Ordering Gift policy as well.  I’m having to get a little more tough on the adding of Host codes when you place your order thru my Online Store.

Not to worry – you’re still going to get that $10 ordering gift for orders of $50 (before shipping & tax) or greater.  And the gift is still any 1 SU! product up to that $10 value – which includes some of our fun Host Sets!

But – if you DO NOT use the Host code for your orders of less than $150 (this is the RETAIL total before Shipping & Handling), then you’ll have two options:

  1. You’ll need to call Stampin’ Up! (1-800-Stamp-Up) and ask them to add it for you. They’re very helpful and will get it done quickly!  OR….
  2. If your order was over the $50 threshold but under $150, then…you’ll forfeit that $10 ordering gift and rewards – this is the Bummer Option – and I REALLY don’t want to do this, SO please remember to add my Current Host Code.

Stampin’ Up! Something Fancy Quick and Easy Thank You

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend? This is the last week before Christmas. The pressure is on to get everything done. It would be much easier for me if I wasn’t working so much. That’s the disadvantage of working in retail this time of the year.

I have another sneak peek for you today, this time I let the DSP do all the work for me. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Something Fancy Thank You 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Something Fancy Bundle and the Stampin’ Up! Two-Tone Flora Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Fancy Flora 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my card today.

Stampin' Up! Something Fancy Thank You 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by adhering my favorite pattern of the Fandy Flora DSP to a Soft Succulent mat using Stampin’ Seal.

Stampin' Up! Something Fancy Thank You 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

I adhered the layered panel to a Soft Suede card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Something Fancy Thank You 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Something Fancy Cling Stamp Set in Soft Succulent Ink. I cut the sentiment out using my Something Fancy Dies. I threaded a piece of Soft Succulent 3/8″ Open Weave Ribbon through the top. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Brushed Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dots to the card front.

Stampin' Up! Something Fancy Thank You 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Something Fancy stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I adhered a strip of the Fancy Flora DSP to the side of the panel. I adhered the Basic Whtie panel to a Soft Succulent mat then to the inside of the Soft Suede card base.

Stampin' Up! Something Fancy Thank You 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the detail flower image from the Two-Tone Flora stamp set in Soft Suede Ink, stamped off once on scrap paper, on the envelope front. I stamped the solid flower image from the Two-Tone Flora stamp set in Soft Suede Ink, stamped off twice on scrap paper, over the detail image. I stamped the leaf image in Soft Succulent Ink, stamped off once on scrap paper. I adhered a panel of Fancy Flora DSP to the envelope flap.
