Stampin’ Up! Kindest Gnomes Thank You

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend? It was a gorgeous one here in NJ, a perfect sunny and not too hot weekend. I was able to enjoy a bit of my Sunday since I only had to work half day.

Today’s card is similar to one that I made at our mystery stamping last Tuesday. I made another one with the same idea using a different stamp set, DSP and dies. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Kindest Gnomes Thank You 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Kindest Gnomes Bundle along with the Storybook Gnomes Designer Series Paper, Design A Daydream Host Designer Series Paper and the Basic Borders Dies for my card today.

Stampin' Up! Kindest Gnomes Thank You 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by cutting the front of a Pool Party card base using the Basic Borders Dies. I cut a panel of Pool Party cardstock the same way with the Basic Borders Dies. I embossed the panel using the Into The Clouds Embossing Folder. I adhered the embossed panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I cut the mushroom house from a panel of Storybook Gnomes DSP using the Gnomes Dies. I adhered the die cut piece to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Kindest Gnomes Thank You 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the gnome image from the Stampin’ Up! Kindest Gnomes Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I cut the image our using my Gnomes Dies. I colored the image using my Calypso Coral, Crumb Cake, Highland Heather, Ivory, Petal Pink and Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the gnome to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment from the Kindest Gnomes stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I adhered the sentiment to the top of the panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Fine Sparkle Adhesive-Backed Gems to the card front.

Stampin' Up! Kindest Gnomes Thank You 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside of the card base, I adhered a panel of Design A Daydream DSP to the bottom portion. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Inspired Thoughts Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Calypso Coral mat then to the top inside of the Pool Party card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the gnome image from the Kindest Gnomes stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I colored the image the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of Design A Daydream DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Friendship Thank You

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. I hope you are having a great weekend. I will only be working a half day today, so I’ll have the afternoon to do something. A couple of my cashiers needed off so I’m splitting the day with another cashier that worked with me yesterday.

Today’s card is very similar to one that I made on Thursday except I changed the direction, DSP and embellishments. I also used my least favorite color, but for some reason I really like it for fall cards. I never make 2 cards identical, but I will make them similar by changing direction and some of the components a bit. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Beauty of Friendship Thank You 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Friendship Photopolymer Stamp Set, the Stampin’ Up! Charming Sentiments Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Butterfly Kisses 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my card today.

Stampin' Up! Beauty of Friendship Thank You 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by adhering a panel of Butterfly Kisses DSP to a Soft Suede mat. I adhered the layered panel to a Crushed Curry card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Beauty of Friendship Thank You 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the tree trunk image from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set in Soft Suede Ink. I stamped the solid treetop image from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set in Crushed Curry Ink over the branches. I stamped the detailed treetop image from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set in Pumpkin Pie Ink over the Crushed Curry image. I cut the image our using the largest die from the Seasonal Labels Dies. I adhered the die cut image to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Beauty of Friendship Thank You 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

I stamped the sentiment from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the panel of Basic White cardstock. I cut the sentiment out with the smaller die from the Seasonal Labels Dies. Using the same die, I cut a panel of Soft Suede cardstock. I cut the Soft Suede die cut in half and adhered it to the back of the sentiment making a small mat. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using a Stampin’ Dimensionals and Glue Dot. I tied a knot with a piece of the Natural Finish 7/8″ Ribbon and adhered it to the card front using Glue Dots.

Stampin' Up! Beauty of Friendship Thank You 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Charming Sentiments in Soft Suede Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the tree trunk image from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the solid treetop image from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set in Crushed Curry Ink over the branches. I stamped the detailed treetop image in Pumpkin Pie Ink over the Crushed Curry image. I stamped the splotch image in Crushed Curry and Pumpkin Pie Inks below the tree. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Soft Suede mat, then to the inside of the Crushed Curry card base.

Stampin' Up! Beauty of Friendship Thank You 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the tree images from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set in Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie and Soft Suede Inks on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of Butterfly Kisses DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Apple Harvest Friendship

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends, welcome to the weekend. I hope you have something fun planned. I’ll be working all day today.

This past Tuesday was our team meeting. After we finish with the business part of the meeting, we do some mystery stamping. Our upline Jaimie gives us measurements of cardstock and DSP and lets us know what other products we may need. The rest is up to us. She talks up through what to do and at the end our cards are all similar, but also very different. Here’s what I came up with.

Stampin' Up! Apple Harvest Friendship 1 creativestanpingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Apple Harvest Bundle along with the Gingham Cottage Designer Series Paper for my card today. This bundle is only available until September 30, 2022. The stamp set is in the July-December 2022 Mini Catalog.

Stampin' Up! Apple Harvest Friendship 2 creativestanpingdesigns.com

I started by making a small mark about 1 3/4″ up from the bottom left front of a So Saffron card base. I cut from that mark to the bottom right corner using my Paper Trimmer.

Stampin' Up! Apple Harvest Friendship 3 creativestanpingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the apple image from the Stampin’ Up! Apple Harvest Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image using my Flirty Flamingo, Granny Apple Green, Poppy Parade, Soft Suede and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image out using my Apple Blossoms Dies. I cut a panel of Granny Apple Green cardstock using the Stylish Shapes Dies. I embossed the die cut panel using the Stitched Greenery Die.

Stampin' Up! Apple Harvest Friendship 4 creativestanpingdesigns.com

I adhered the die cut apple image to the Granny Apple Green panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I tied a small bow with Linen Thread and adhered it to the apple stem using a Glue Dot. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment from the Apple Harvest stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the Basic White panel. I cut the sentiment out using the Harvest Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the card base along the bottom angled edge using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I colored a few of the Pearl Basic Jewels using my Dark Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends Marker. I adhered the pearls to the card front.

Stampin' Up! Apple Harvest Friendship 5 creativestanpingdesigns.com

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Apple Harvest stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Granny Apple Green mat then to the inside top of the So Saffron card base. I adhered a panel of Gingham Cottage DSP to the inside bottom of the So Saffron card base.

Stampin' Up! Apple Harvest Friendship 6 creativestanpingdesigns.com

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the apple image from the Apple Harvest stamp set on the envelope front and colored it the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of the Gingham Cottage DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Soft Seedlings Josephs Coat

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. I hope everyone’s weekend is going well. I hope you will all take a moment of silence today for all the lives that were lost over 20 years ago. I remember the day like it was yesterday with all our phone going dead and just glued to the tv watching. My children were both in school in lock down until school was over and I could pick them up. I was so scared of what was happening and what could happen. It was a very sad and scary time.

Today’s card is one that we made at our Stamp Camp Class this past Tuesday night. I thought I’d have fun with a couple techniques with the ladies. This one I saw one of my team members make, Mary Deatherage, and I thought it would be perfect with our fall theme. It’s called the Josephs Coat Technique. You can see Mary’s video making this card Here. Here is my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Soft Seedlings Josephs Coat 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

Today’s card once again uses the Stampin’ Up! Soft Seedlings Cling Stamp Set. This is such a perfect set for fall cards and all kinds of techniques.

Stampin' Up! Soft Seedlings Josephs Coat 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started with a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock and using my Blending Brushes I added Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry and Pumpkin Pie Inks completely covering the panel. I set the panel to the side to dry completely. You can also use your Heat Tool on the #1 setting to dry the panel. You want to make sure the ink is completely dry before stamping or the embossing powder will stick to the ink and this technique will not work.

Stampin' Up! Soft Seedlings Josephs Coat 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

Once the panel was completely dry, I stamped the large leaf image from the Soft Seedlings stamp set in Versamark Ink randomly around the panel. I sprinkled it with my Clear Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. Once the panel cooled, I used my Blending Brush again and brushed Early Espresso Ink all over the panel completely covering it again. Once I had the amount of ink I wanted, I took a paper towel and gently rubbed all over the panel wiping the ink off the embossed areas and letting the colors shine through. I adhered the panel to an Early Espresso mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to a Very Vanilla Thick card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Soft Seedlings Josephs Coat 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a small panel of Very Vanilla cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Soft Seedlings stamp set in Cajun Craze Ink. I cut the sentiment out using my Stylish Shapes Dies. I adhered a piece of Old Olive ribbon from the Old Olive & Sahara Sand Twill Ribbon Combo Pack to the card front. I adhered the sentiment over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a Textural Element to the card front just under the sentiment using a Glue Dot. I added a few Brushed Metallic Adhesive Backed Dots to the card front.

Stampin' Up! Soft Seedlings Josephs Coat 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Soft Seedlings stamp set in Cajun Craze Ink on a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock. I used my Blending Brushes and added color to the large leaf image from the Soft Seedlings stamp set and stamped the leaves on the panel. I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to an Early Espresso mat and then to the inside of the Very Vanilla Thick card base

Stampin' Up! Soft Seedlings Josephs Coat 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To finish my card, I decorated a Very Vanilla Medium Envelope. I stamped the large leaf image from the Soft Seedlings stamp set on the envelope front and flap in Cajun Craze and Pumpkin Pie Inks.

Stampin’ Up! Soft Seedlings 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’s blog, thank you for stopping by. This week we have Theme Challenge. Here is my card using this week’s Theme.

Stampin' Up! Soft Seedlings Pink 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Soft Seedlings Cling Stamp Set for my card today.

Here is our Theme for this week.

Stampin' Up! Soft Seedlings Pink 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by embossing a panel of Blushing Bride cardstock using the Timber 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the embossed panel to a Blushing Bride card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue

Stampin' Up! Soft Seedlings Pink 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the large leaf image from the Soft Seedlings stamp set. I inked up the stamp with Blushing Bride Ink then using my Sponge Dauber, I added some Soft Suede Ink along the edges. I cut the image out using my Deckled Rectangle Dies. I stamped the sentiment from the Soft Seedlings stamp set along the bottom in Soft Suede Ink.

Stampin' Up! Soft Seedlings Pink 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

I adhered the artwork to a Soft Suede mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to the Blushing Bride card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I tied a small bow with Linen Thread and added it to the leaf stem using a Glue Dot. I added a few Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

Stampin' Up! Soft Seedlings Pink 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Soft Seedlings stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the seedling image from the Soft Seedlings stamp set on the top of the panel. I inked the stamp first with Blushing Bride Ink then using my Sponge Dauber I added Soft Suede Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Blushing Bride mat and then to the inside of the Blushing Bride card base.

Stampin' Up! Soft Seedlings pink 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the large leaf image from the Soft Seedlings stamp set on the envelope front inking it up the same as for the card. I stamped the seedling image from the Soft Seedlings stamp set on the envelope flap inking the stamp the same as for the card.

Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Brilliance for The Card Concepts

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends.  I hope everyone is having a productive week. We’re halfway through and on our way to the weekend. I’m not sure if I’ll be able to go live today on my Facebook page since today’s the first day I’m back in the office since last Thursday. I will post something on my Facebook page if I will be going live at 4pm ET.

It’s time for an inspiration challenge for The Card Concepts after a few weeks off for the summer. The inspiration photo is Change of Seasons. Here is my card that was inspired from the challenge photo.

Stampin' Up! Butterfly Brilliance 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Brilliance Cling Stamp Set along with the Stampin’ Up! Very Best Occasions Cling Stamp Set and the Tea Boutique 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my clean and simple card today.

I hope you will take a moment to visit The Card Concepts and join us for our challenge #179.  How are you inspired by this photo?

Stampin' Up! Butterfly Brilliance 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by adhering 2 strips of Tahitian Tide cardstock to a Tea Boutique DSP card front using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the panel to a Basic White Thick card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Butterfly Brilliance 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the largest butterfly image from the Butterfly Brilliance stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I cut the butterfly out using the Brilliant Wings Dies. I then colored the butterfly image using my So Saffron, Sweet Sorbet and Tahitian Tide Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the butterfly to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals just in the center bending the wings up a bit.

Stampin' Up! Butterfly Brilliance 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Very Best Occasions stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I cut the sentiment out using the Label Me Fancy Punch. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few 2022-2024 In-Color Matte Decorative Dots to the card front.

Stampin' Up! Butterfly Brilliance 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Very Best Occasions stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the butterfly image from the Butterfly Brilliance stamp set on either side of the panel in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the images in using my So Saffron, Sweet Sorbet and Tahitian Tide Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Tahitian Tide mat and then to the inside of the Basic White Thick card base.

Stampin' Up! Butterfly Brilliance 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the butterfly image from Butterfly Brilliance stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I colored the butterfly using my So Saffron, Sweet Sorbet and Tahitian Tide Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of Tea Boutique DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Happiness Abounds CAS

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. I hope you have the day off and have some picnic plans or maybe just taking some time to relax. My plan was to try to get ahead at my card table today. We’ll see what happens, my husband decided to invite a bunch of people over for a barbeque which I am NOT prepared for.

I have a quick and easy card for you today that I was able to make so quickly it scared me. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Happiness Abounds 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Happiness Abounds Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Designer Tags Dies for my card today.

Stampin' Up! Happiness Abounds 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by stamping the sentiment from Happiness Abounds stamp set in Versamark Ink on a panel of Night of Navy cardstock. I sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder from the Basic Embossing Powders and set it using the Heat Tool.

Stampin' Up! Happiness Abounds 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

Using the Designer Tags Dies, I cut the flower image on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Night of Navy panel to a Basic White Thick card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Happiness Abounds 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

I cut the butterfly die from the Designer Tags Dies from a panel of 2022-2024 In-Color Glimmer Paper. I adhered the butterfly to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I tied a small bow using the Parakeet Party 1/8″ Metallic Woven Ribbon and adhered it using a Glue Dot. I added a few Rhinestones Basic Jewels by the flower and Classic Matte Dots on the butterfly.

Stampin' Up! Happiness Abounds 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Happiness Abounds stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the rose image from the Happiness Abounds stamp set in Orchid Oasis Ink on the bottom of the panel. I masked the rose using a Post-It Note, which I cut the rose out of, and stamped the leaf image from the Happiness Abounds stamp set in Parakeet Party Ink. I colored the leaves using my Parakeet Party Stampin’ Blends Markers. I colored parts of the rose using my Orchid Oasis Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic Whtie panel to a Night of Navy mat and then to the inside of the Basic White Thick card base.

Stampin' Up! Happiness Abounds 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the rose image from the Happiness Abounds stamp set in Orchid Oasis Ink on the envelope front and flap. I masked the rose with a Post-It Note and stamped the leaf image from the Happiness Abounds around the rose in Parakeet Party Ink. I colored part of the rose and the leaves in using my Orchid Oasis and Parakeet Party Stampin’ Blends Markers.

Stampin’ Up! Hello Harvest Gnome 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’s blog, thank you for stopping by. This week we have a beautiful fall Sketch Challenge. Here is my card using this week’s Sketch.

Stampin' Up! Hello Harvest Gnome 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Hello Harvest Cling Stamp Set along with the Stampin’ Up! Kindest Gnomes Bundle and the Gingham Cottage Designer Series Paper for my card today.

This is our sketch for this week.

Stampin' Up! Hello Harvest Gnome 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by adhering a panel of Gingham Cottage DSP to a Pumpkin Pie card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered a panel of Rustic Harvest Designer Series Paper to the bottom of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Hello Harvest Gnome 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the pumpkin image from the Hello Harvest stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image using my Old Olive and Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends Markers. I embossed the panel with the Leaf Fall 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the panel to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Hello Harvest Gnome 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a small panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sitting gnome image from the Stampin’ Up! Kindest Gnomes Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image using my Crumb Cake, Ivory, Old Olive, Smoky Slate and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image out using the Gnome Dies. I adhered the gnome on top of the pumpkin using Stampin’ Dimensionals. On a panel of Mossy Meadow cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Hello Harvest 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 Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Brushed Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dots to the card front.

Stampin' Up! Hello Harvest Gnome 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Kindest Gnomes stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the floral image from the Hello Harvest stamp set on the bottom of the panel in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image using my Crumb Cake, Ivory, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Mossy Meadow mat and then to the inside of the Pumpkin Pie card base.

Stampin' Up! Hello Harvest Gnome 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the pumpkin image from Hello Harvest stamp set on the envelope front in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image using my Old Olive and Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of Gingham Cottage DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Fresh Cut Flowers Just A Note

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. I hope you are all doing well today. Can you believe August is over? This has been the hottest August I remember in a long time. We’re still in the 90’s here in NJ. Today is the absolute LAST DAY to earn free Sale-a-bration items. If there is anything you’ve been wanting, today is the day to get it!!

Today’s card I used a new item that you will be able to purchase starting tomorrow, YAY!!! Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Fresh Cut Flowers Note 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Fresh Cut Flowers Cling Stamp Set along with the Stampin’ Up! Go To Greetings Cling Stamp Set and the new Fresh Cut Stems Dies for my card today.

Stampin' Up! Fresh Cut Flowers Note 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by stamping the large flower image from the Fresh Cut Flowers stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I colored the image in using my Fresh Freesia and Parakeet Party Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image out using my new Fresh Cut Stems Dies (available starting Sept 1- Sept 30). Using my Fresh Cut Stems Dies I cut 2 of the larger sprigs from a panel of Basic White cardstock and 3 of the small sprigs from a panel of Sahara Sand cardstock.

Stampin' Up! Fresh Cut Flowers Note 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

I cut the edge of a Basic White card front using the Fresh Cut Stems Dies. Using my Blending Brush, I added a little Tahitian Tide Ink to the center of the Basic White card front. I stamped the sentiment from the Go To Greetings stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom of the panel.

Stampin' Up! Fresh Cut Flowers Note 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

I wrapped a piece of Parakeet Party 1/8″ Metallic Ribbon around the card front and tied a bow. I adhered the card front to a Parakeet Party card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the large flower image to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the sprigs under the floral image using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I added a few Fresh Freesia 2021-2023 In-Color Opal Rounds to the card front.

Stampin' Up! Fresh Cut Flowers Note 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Go To Greetings stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the floral image from the Fresh Cut Flowers stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom of the panel. I colored the image in using my Fresh Freesia and Parakeet Party Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Parakeet Party mat and then to the inside of the Parakeet Party card base.

Stampin' Up! Fresh Cut Flowers Note 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the floral images from the Fresh Cut Flowers stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and flap. I colored the images in using my Fresh Freesia and Parakeet Party Stampin’ Blends Markers.

Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Prints Paneled Card

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend? Did anyone do anything fun? Our Sunday started out to be fun, going to watch my husband drive the racecar. It didn’t end up as much fun though. It started raining then pouring on our way there. There were bad thunderstorms, and everything got delayed for hours. They told us that there were 570 lightening strikes so we had to stay inside a garage for a bit. Even when we got the ok to go out, it was still raining. He had to reschedule, so now we’ll be going again May 14, 2023 (Mother’s Day). This was the last weekend they were going to be in NJ. With all the rain and thunderstorms there, it was dry as a bone at my house.

Today’s card is similar to yesterday’s but switched around a little. A change of direction, stamp set and one color. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Nature's Prints Paneled 1  creativestampingdesigns.com

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

Stampin' Up! Nature's Prints Paneled 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by stamping the fern image from the Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Prints Cling Stamp Set in Blushing Bride Ink randomly on the Blushing Bride card base. I adhered a panel of Sun Prints Designer Series Paper to a Basic White mat and then to the Blushing Bride card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Nature's Prints Paneled 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the 3″ X 4″ panel of Basic White cardstock I randomly stamped the images from the Nature’s Prints stamp set in Blushing Bride, Gray Granite, Merry Merlot and Night of Navy Inks. I embossed the panel using the Fern 3D Embossing Folder. I cut the panel into 3 – 1″ strips using my Paper Trimmer. I adhered the strips to the 3 1/4″ X 4 1/8″ panel of Basic White cardstock. I adhered the layered panel to a Night of Navy mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Nature's Prints Paneled 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Gray Granite cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Nature’s Prints stamp set in Night of Navy Ink. I cut the sentiment out using the Natural Prints Dies. I cut 2 of the sprigs from the panel of Gray Granite cardstock. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the sprigs behind the artwork using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I added a few Elegant Faceted Gems to the card front.

Stampin' Up! Nature's Prints Paneled 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

I stamped the sentiment from the Nature’s Prints stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the images from the Nature’s Prints stamp set in Blushing Bride, Gray Granite, Merry Merlot and Night of Navy Inks on the side of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Night of Navy mat and then to the inside of the Blushing Bride card base.
