Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Thanks CAS

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends.  How is everyone’s weekend going?  Does anyone have any fun activities planned for today?  What ever you do, I hope you have an enjoyable day.

For today’s card I went outside my comfort zone.  I tried a monochromatic card.  I’m usually all about different colors, not today.  I love this technique and wanted to try it out with some blues.  Here is my card.

I’m playing along with Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge #402.  Here is their theme.

I started by inking up my D Clear Acrylic Block starting with Balmy Blue Ink on the top 1/3.  I then inked the center with Seaside Spray Ink and the bottom 1/3 with Misty Moonlight Ink.  Using my Stampin’ Spritzer filled with water, I spritzed the block from about 8″-10″ away 3-4 times.  I stamped a panel of Thick Whisper White cardstock with the block.  Each time you do this technique you get different results, that’s what makes it really awesome.  I let the panel dry for a bit.

I stamped the floral image from the Stampin’ Up! Beauty Abounds Cling Stamp Set in Seaside Spray Ink in the center of the ink block.  I stamped the butterfly images from the Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Wishes Cling Stamp Set in Misty Moonlight Ink on either side of the floral image and stamping outside of the ink block.

I stamped the sentiment from the Beauty Abounds stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink below the ink block.  I adhered the artwork to a Thick Whisper White card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Thanks Photopolymer Stamp Set in Misty Moonlight Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the floral image from the Beauty Abounds stamp set in Seaside Spray Ink on the side of the panel.  I stamped the butterfly from the Butterfly Wishes stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink above the floral image and sentiment.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Seaside Spray 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 floral image from the Beauty Abounds stamp set in Seaside Spray Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped the butterfly images from the Butterfly Wishes stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink by the floral image and on 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! Prized Peony Thanks

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends  How is everyone doing today?  We’re halfway through the week already and before you know it the weekend will be here.

For today’s card I used the beautiful Stampin’ Up! Prized Peony Cling Stamp Set.  Here is my card for today.

My design is from Fab Friday Challenge #193.  Here is their sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of Peony Garden Designer Series Paper to a Petal Pink mat using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered it to a Basic Gray card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered a panel of Peony Garden DSP to a panel of Petal Pink cardstock which I cut using the 2nd largest die from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.  I cut the left side of the matted panel even with the DSP panel.  I adhered a piece of a Square Vellum Doilie to the bottom of the artwork using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Prized Peony stamp set in Gray Granite Ink.  I stamped the small peony image from the Prized Peony stamp set in Petal Pink Ink on the end of the strip.  I cut the strip into a banner using my Banner Triple Punch and adhered it to the artwork using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I added a few Elegant Faceted Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Prized Peony stamp set in Gray Granite Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the small peony image from the Prized Peony stamp set in Petal Pink Ink on the bottom of the panel.  I adhered a strip of Peony Garden DSP to the left side of the panel using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Petal Pink mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Basic Gray card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the small peony image from the Prized Peony stamp set on the bottom front of the envelope in Petal Pink Ink.  I adhered a panel of Peony Garden DSP to the envelope Flap.

Stampin’ Up! Cute Fruit Thanks

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends.  How was everyone’s 4th?  Anyone have a picnic or go to one?  It was a very quiet day for us, we kind of just relaxed around the house.  Definitely was not our normal 4th.

For today’s card I used the super adorable set from the beginner catalog again.  I really love this set.  Here’s my card for today.

My sketch is from CAS(E) This Sketch Challenge #379.  Here is their sketch.

My colors are from Color Throwdown Challenge #600.  Here are their colors.

I started by stamping the watermelon image from the Stampin’ Up! Cute Fruit Photopolymer Stamp Set on an extra long strip of Whisper White cardstock.  I stamped the rind first in Granny Apple Green Ink, then the fruit  in Poppy Parade Ink.  I colored the seeds in using my Basic Black Stampin’ Blends Marker.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Basic Black mat using Stampin’ Seal.

I embossed a panel of Poppy Parade cardstock using the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the matted strip of watermelons to the card front on an angle, hanging over on both corners, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I cut off the excess using my Paper Snips.  I adhered the card front to a Poppy Parade card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small panel of Basic Black cardstock, I cut the sentiment from the Well Written Dies and adhered it to the strip of fruit using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Cute Fruit stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the watermelon image from the Cute Fruit stamp set on the bottom of the panel stamping the rind first in Granny Apple Green Ink, then the fruit in Poppy Parade Ink.  I colored the seeds using my Basic Black Stampin’ Blends markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Basic Black mat using Stampin’ Seal 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 watermelon image from the Cute Fruit stamp set on the envelope front and flap.  I stamped the rind first in Granny Apple Green Ink and then the fruit in Poppy Parade Ink.  I stamped the adorable face from the Cute Fruit stamp set on the watermelon in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I stamped the sentiment from the Cute Fruit stamp set (because I thought it needed it), under the watermelon image on the envelope front in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.

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!!  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Wildly Grateful

Good Monday morning my stamping friends.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Did anyone do anything fun?  We had our brunch yesterday then gave my husband his Outside Pizza Oven.  It was a big hit.  He loved it.  We have so much pizza right now, I think we might be eating it all week.  He had a lot of fun cooking in it.  I think next time I might have to invite a lot of people over if he’s going to make this much, LOL.

For today I have a quick and easy card for you.  Here’s my card for today.

My colors are from The Color Throwdown Challenge #598.  Here are their colors.

My design is from Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #440.  Here is their sketch.

I also played along with TGIF Technique Challenge #269.  Here is their theme.

I started by making my own designer series paper by randomly stamping 4 of the images from the Stampin’ Up! Lovely You Cling Stamp Set  on a panel of Whisper White cardstock using Coastal Cabana and Flirty Flamingo Inks.  Some images I stamped full strength ink and some were stamped off once to give the paper different shades of the colors.

I adhered my card front to a Coastal Cabana card base using Stampin’ Seal.  I stamped the sentiment from the Lovely You stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a small panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I cut the image out using my Stitched Rectangle Dies.  There wasn’t a die the size I needed, so I had to make my own size.  I did this by cutting the panel part way with the die.  I then turned the panel and moved the die to the size I wanted my rectangle, making sure the stitches were lined up.  I then cut the panel part way through again.

I adhered the sentiment to a Forever Gold Laser-Cut Specialty Designer Series Paper using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the framed sentiment to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue just in the center section of the die cut.  I added a few Coastal Cabana Playing With Patterns Resin Dots to the card front and sentiment.

On the inside I stamped the 4 images from the Lovely You stamp set in Coastal Cabana and Flirty Flamingo Ink randomly around the edges of a Whisper White panel.  Some were stamped full strength ink and some were stamped off once.  I didn’t put a sentiment on today’s card because I wanted to write my own thank you.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the 4 images from the Lovely You stamp set in full strength ink on the envelope front and stamped off once on 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! Forever Fern Birthday and Thanks

Good Monday morning my stamping friends.  How was everyone’s weekend?  We had our ‘In Person’ team meeting yesterday and even though we couldn’t be together, it was a lot of fun.

I have 2 of the 4 cards for you that we made yesterday.  My team members did such an awesome job of designing and demonstrating how to make them.  Today’s are the same technique, but just turning the card and changing the sentiment can make a difference.  These cards were designed by Sue Prather.  Here are the cards for today.

For both cards we did the same thing, just a larger acrylic block for the landscape card.  To get the strip on the card front, we inked up blocks H & I starting at one end and working our way to the other.  We inked about 1″-1 1/2″ with the following inks, Soft Sea Foam, Pear Pizzazz, Garden Green, Shaded Spruce and Pretty Peacock (in that order).  Lightly spritz it with my Stampin’ Spritzer filled with water.  Stamp it on a panel of Thick Whisper White cardstock and let it dry.  Every time you do this technique it will come out differently as you can see in my 2 cards, that’s the best part.

Once it was dry, I stamped the leafy image from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern Cling Stamp Set in Pretty Peacock Ink over the color strip.  I then stamped the splatter image from the Forever Fern stamp set around the leaves in Pretty Peacock Ink.

On the bottom or the top card I stamped the sentiment from the Forever Fern stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink.  On the top of the bottom card I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Thanks Photopolymer Stamp Set in Pretty Peacock Ink.  I adhered the card fronts to a Thick Whisper White card base using Stampin’ Seal.

On the inside of the top card I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Best Year Cling Stamp Set in the center of a Whisper White panel in Pretty Peacock Ink.  I stamped the leaf image from the Forever Fern stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink on the bottom of the panel.  On the bottom card I stamped the sentiment from the Ornate Thanks stamp set in the center of a Whisper White panel in Pretty Peacock Ink.  I stamped 3 of the leaf images from the Forever Fern stamp set in Pear Pizzazz, Garden Green and Pretty Peacock Inks.  I stamped the splatter image from the Forever Fern stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink around the leaf images.  For both cards, I adhered the Whisper White panels to Pretty Peacock mats using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Thick Whisper White card bases using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

 

To finish my cards I decorated Medium Whisper White Envelopes.  I stamped the leaf images from the Forever Fern stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink on the top envelope and Pear Pizzazz, Garden Green and Pretty Peacock Inks on the bottom envelopes.  The bottom one I stamped the splatter image from the Forever Fern stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink around the leaves.  I adhered panels of Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper to the envelope flaps.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked the cards we made at our meeting and will give them a try. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Flowering Blooms

Good Saturday morning my fellow stampers.  How has everyone’s weekend started off?  I was able to tackle another one of my gardens yesterday that needed a lot of TLC.  This one wraps around my house and is lined with these large boulders.  I was doing great at the beginning, but after 4 hours of lifting them and raking the dirt, I was exhausted.  My daughter was helping me and was doing great until she dropped one on her foot.  These boulders have to be at least 20-30lbs each, which moving 1 or 2 isn’t bad, but after moving around 40 we were done.  It does look much nicer now, so it was well worth the pain.

For today’s card I played with another new bundle I purchased from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.  Here’s my card for today.

My colors were inspired by  Color Throwdown Challenge #597.  Here are their colors.

My sketch is from CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge #374.  Here is their sketch.

I started by stamping the large flower image from the Stampin’ Up! Flowering Blooms Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a Whisper White panel.  I colored the image in using my Granny Apple Green and Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the image out using my Flowering Dies.

I cut another panel of Whisper White cardstock using the 2nd largest scalloped rectangle from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies and embossed it using the Dainty Diamonds 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the flower to the embossed panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  On the Thick Whisper White card base I stamped the Bokeh Dots image from the Stampin’ Up! Beauty Abounds Cling Stamp Set in Balmy Blue Ink on the top and bottom of where I was putting the artwork.

I stamped the sentiment from the Flowering Blooms stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the bottom of the card front.  I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a Rich Razzleberry sequins from the Artistry Blooms Adhesive-Backed Sequins.  I tied a small bow using the 1/8″ Night of Navy Ribbon from the Playing With Patterns Ribbon Combo Pack and adhered it to the bottom of the flower using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Flowering Blooms stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the large flower image from the Flowering Blooms stamp set on the bottom of the panel in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored it in using my Granny Apple Green and Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Rich Razzleberry 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 flower image from the Flowering Blooms stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the bottom front of the envelope.  I colored the image in using my Granny Apple Green and Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the Bokeh Dots images from the Beauty Abounds stamp set in Balmy Blue and Rich Razzleberry Inks on 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! Ornate Thank You

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Yesterday turned out to be such a beautiful day here.  Upper 70’s with only 50% humidity.  I’d take a whole summer of that weather.

For today’s card I used another one of the Suites from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog that I just had to buy the whole thing, the beautiful Ornate Garden Suite.  Here’s my card for today.

I started by adhering a panel of the Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper to a Bumble Bee card base using Stampin’ Seal.

Using the Ornate Layers Dies I cut a panel of Bumble Bee cardstock .  On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Thanks Photopolymer Stamp Set in Bumble Bee Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using the Ornate Layers Dies and adhered it to the Bumble Bee frame using Stampin’ Seal.

I adhered a piece of 1/4″ Old Olive ribbon from the Ornate Garden Ribbon Combo Pack to the card front using Glue Dots.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front, on top of the ribbon, using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Gilded Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Ornate Thanks stamp set in Bumble Bee Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the daisy image from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Style Cling Stamp Set twice in Early Espresso Ink on the bottom of the panel.  I colored the images in using my Crumb Cake and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to an Old Olive mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the Bumble Bee card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the daisy image from the Ornate Style stamp set in Early Espresso Ink twice on the envelope front and colored the images in using my Crumb Cake and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of the Ornate Garden Specialty DSP to the envelope flap.

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

Stampin’ Up! Inspiring Iris Thanks

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends.  How has everyone’s weekend started off.  I’ll be at work all day today.  It’s suppose to be stormy here, so it might not be as busy as it has been.

Today’s card was inspired by one of my 8 gardens in my yard.  I have an Iris garden and it is now in full bloom.  When I took these pictured there were still a lot of buds.  I look forward every spring for these to bloom.

Here is my card for today.

My sketch is from the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #438.  Here is their sketch.

I started by embossing a Pear Pizzazz card front using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder.

I adhered a panel of the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper to the left side of the panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Using my Light Highland Heather Stampin’ Blends Marker, I colored a piece of the Open Weave Vanilla 1/2″ Ribbon from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack.  I wrapped the piece around the DSP and adhered it to the back of the card front using Glue Dots.  I adhered the card front to a Pear Pizzazz card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the stem image from the Stampin’ Up! Inspiring Iris Photopolymer Stamp Set in Pear Pizzazz Ink.  I stamped the iris image from the Inspiring Iris stamp set in Highland Heather Ink on top of the stems.  I cut the image out using the 4th largest Stitched Nested Labels Dies.  I stamped the sentiment from the Inspiring Iris stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on the top of the panel and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Pearl Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Inspiring Iris stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the stem image from the Inspiring Iris stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on the bottom of the panel.  I stamped the iris image from the Inspiring Iris stamp set in Highland Heather Ink on top of the stem image.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Highland Heather mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Pear Pizzazz card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the stem image from the Inspiring Iris stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped the iris image from the Inspiring Iris stamp set in Highland Heather Ink on top of the stem image.  I adhered a panel of In Good Taste DSP to the envelope flap.

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

Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern Friendship

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends.  How has everyone’s week started off?  Yesterday was such a beautiful spring day here, cool in the morning and 70 in the afternoon with very low humidity, but a lot of pollen.  Don’t forget, today is the last day to sign up for my 2020-2021 Annual Catalog Paper Shares and the last day to purchase retiring items from the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog and the January – June Mini Catalog.

Today’s card is filled with new items for you from cardstock, to DSP to Stamp Set.  Here’s my card for today.

I started by adhering a panel of the Flowers For Every Season 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Magenta Madness card front using Snail.

I wrapped a piece of the Misty Moonlight/Silver Bakers Twine, from the Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Pack, around the card front 3 times and tacked it with Glue Dots on the back.  I adhered the card front to a Misty Moonlight card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern Cling Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink, stamping off once.  I cut the sentiment out using the 2nd smallest circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I cut a panel of Misty Moonlight cardstock using the scalloped circle that was just a bit larger that the stitched circle from the Layering Circle Dies.  I adhered the sentiment to the scalloped circle mat using Snail and then adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a couple Magenta Madness 2020-2022 In-Color Enamel Dots to the sentiment.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Thanks Photopolymer Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink stamping off once, in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped one of the fern images from the Forever Fern stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink on either side of the sentiment, stamping off twice.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Magenta Madness mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Misty Moonlight card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the fern image from the Forever Fern stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink, stamping off once then continuing to stamp without reinking, on the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of the Flowers for Every Season 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! Tropical Thank You for Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

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

Here’s what I came up with for these colors.

I started by adhering a panel of the Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper to a So Saffron mat using Snail.  I adhered the matted DSP to an Old Olive card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I cut a panel of So Saffron cardstock using the larges scalloped rectangle from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.  I adhered a panel of Tropical Oasis DSP to the scalloped rectangle using Snail.  I adhered a piece of the Braided Burlap Trim to the card front using Glue Dots and adhered the matted DSP to the card front, on top of the Burlap Trim, using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tropical Cling Stamp Set in Mango Melody  Ink.  I cut the image out using the Stitched So Sweetly Dies and adhered it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I added a Tropical Oasis Trinket to the sentiment die.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Timeless Tropical stamp set in Mango Melody Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the pineapple image from the Timeless Tropical stamp set on the bottom of the panel.  To get the 2-tone color, I stamped just the bottom portion of the pineapple in my So Saffron Ink and colored the top leaves using my Pear Pizzazz Stampin’ Write Marker.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a So Saffron 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 pineapple image from the Timeless Tropical stamp set on the front of the envelope getting the 2-tone by stamping the bottom in my So Saffron Ink and coloring the top using my Pear Pizzazz Stampin’ Write Marker.  I adhered a panel of Tropical Oasis 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.
