Stampin’ Up! Sweet Citrus

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend and Christmas? Is anyone lucky enough to the day off today? I’m heading into work shortly, but I have to go to PT first. I don’t think I’ve ever had the 26th of December off for as long as I can reemeber.

I played with some new product for today’s card. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Sweet Citrus 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Sweet Citrus Bundle, available Jan 5, 2023, for my card today. This is such a fun set to play with. You can make lemons, limes, oranges and grapefruits out of the images.

Stampin' Up! Sweet Citrus 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by embossing a panel of Basic White cardstock using the Sweet Citrus Hybrid 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the embossed panel to a Pale Papaya mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered a Basic White panel to a Pale Papaya mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to a Basic White Thick card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I decided to make my fruit into a grapefruit. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the outline of the fruit image from the Sweet Citrus stamp set in Pale Papaya Ink. I stamped the inside fruit image from the Sweet Citrus stamp set in Flirty Flamingo Ink. I stamped the leaf image in Granny Apple Green Ink. I cut the images out using my Sweet Citrus Dies.

Stampin' Up! Sweet Citrus 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

I adhered the images to the embossed panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the leaves behind the fruit using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On a strip of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Sweet Citrus stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink. I adhered the sentiment below the fruit using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Pale Papaya 2021-2023 In-Color Opal Rounds to the card front. I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Sweet Citrus 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Sweet Citrus stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the fruit outline image from the Sweet Citrus stamp set on the bottom of the panel in Pale Papaya Ink. I stamped the fruit fill image in Flirty Flamingo Ink. I stamped the leaf image in Granny Apple Green Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Pale Papaya mat then to the inside of the Basic Whtie Thick card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the whole and half grapefruit images from the Sweet Citrus stamp set on the envelope front and flap in Flirty Flamingo and Pale Papaya Inks.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you like the card and have this bundle on your wish list. I don’t know what it is about fruits and vegetables that makes them so cute. Happy Stamping!!

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.

Designer Series Paper Shares Do Not earn my Creative Stamping Designs Rewards.

New Designer Series Paper Share – $27.00 plus $8.00 for Priority Mail shipping

FREE Gift From Me! – As a bonus for joining my share, you’ll also get a sampler of the Sale-a-bration Designer Series Paper Packs!  I’ll send each participant in my share a sampler of papers from the Dainty Flowers, Day At The Farm, Favored Flowers and Dandy Designs Sale-a-bration DSP packs!

I started by cutting a panel of Blushing Bride Brushstroke Specialty Paper using the lattice die from the Organic Beauty Dies. I adhered the die cut to a Merry Merlot card base.

Using the Organic Beauty Dies, I cut panels of Granny Apple Green, Mossy Meadow and Shimmer White cardstock.

I adhered the fussy cut floral image using Stampin’ Dimensionals over the sprigs.

I stamped the flower image from the True Beauty stamp set in Blushing Bride Ink on the stem. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Blushing Bride mat then to the inside of the Merry Merlot card base.

We created six new dies that coordinate with stamp sets in the 2022–2023 Annual Catalog and the July–December 2022 Mini Catalog. These coordinating dies will only be available during this promotion and will not be offered in any catalog.

Stampin’ Up! Gathered Wheat 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 Theme Challenge. Here is my card using this week’s Theme.

Stampin' Up! Gathered Wheat 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Gathered Wheat Bundle along with the Gingham Cottage Designer Series Paper for my card today.

Here is our theme for this week.

Stampin' Up! Gathered Wheat 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by stamping the small wheat image from the Stampin’ Up! Gathered Wheat Cling Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink on a Soft Suede card base. I adhered a panel of the Gingham Cottage DSP to the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Gathered Wheat 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the large wheat image from the Gathered Wheat stamp set in Soft Suede Ink. I stamped the splatter image from the Gathered Wheat stamp set in Crushed Curry Ink on the top of the wheat image. I stamped the sentiment from the Gathered Wheat stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the top of Basic Whtie panel. I cut the image out using the Wheat Dies. From a panel of Crushed Curry cardstock, I cut the small wheat dies and the border die from the Wheat Dies. I stamped the sentiment from the Gathered Wheat stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the Basic Whtie panel.

Stampin' Up! Gathered Wheat 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

I adhered the border wheat die to the bottom of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the large wheat image to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the small wheat die cuts behind the large image using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I tied a multi loop bow from Linen Thread and adhered it to the wheat using a Glue Dot. I adhered the die cut sentiment to the top of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Brushed Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dots to the top of the card front.

Stampin' Up! Gathered Wheat 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

I stamped the sentiment from the Gathered Wheat stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the small wheat image from the Gathered Wheat stamp set in Crushed Curry Ink on either side of the panel, stamping some full strength and some stamped off once on scrap paper. I adhered the Basic Whtie panel to a Real Red mat and then to the inside of the Soft Suede card base.

Stampin' Up! Gathered Wheat 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the smaller wheat image from the Gathered Wheat stamp set in Crushed Curry Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of Gingham Cottage DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin' Up! Hello Harvest 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 just the banner part using my Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Write Marker. I stamped the sentiment from the Hello Harvest stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink inside the banner. I cut the banner out using my Rustic Pumpkins Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the top of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Brushed Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dots to the card front.

Stampin’ Up! Season of Chic Thinking of You

Good Monday morning my stamping friends welcome to a new week. How was everyone’s weekend? It was a hot muggy one here in NJ. I was actually happy to be inside working.

Today’s card is a quick one that I think came out pretty nice. It’s a simple one and one that you can easily duplicate. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Season Of Chic 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Season of Chic Bundle for my card today.

Stampin' Up! Season Of Chic 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by stamping the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Season of Chic Photopolymer Stamp Set in Versamark Ink on the bottom of a Very Vanilla card front. I sprinkled it with my Gold Embossing Powder from the Metallic Embossing Powders and set it using my Heat Tool.

Stampin' Up! Season Of Chic 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

I embossed the card front using the Leaf Fall 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the card front to a Very Vanilla mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I wrapped a piece of the Gold & Very Vanilla 3/8″ Satin Edged Ribbon around the layered panel and tied a knot. I adhered the layered panel to a Very Vanilla Thick card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a Brushed Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dot by the sentiment.

Stampin' Up! Season Of Chic 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the detailed leaf image from the Season of Chic stamp set in Versamark Ink. I sprinkled it with my Gold Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I cut the image out using the Chic Dies. I cut 3 of the detailed leaf dies from the Chic Dies from a panel of Distressed Gold Specialty Paper. I adhered the embossed leaf and 2 of the die cut gold leaves to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Season Of Chic 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment and detailed leaf image from the Season of Chic stamp set in Versamark Ink on a Very Vanilla panel. I sprinkled it with my Gold Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to the inside of the Very Vanilla Thick card base.

Stampin’ Up! Brightest Beauty CAS

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend. It’s HOT here. We’re supposed to be in the 100’s today. The ‘feel like’ temp for the past week has been over 100 every day. My son has been coming home from work exhausted. He’s a soccer coach and has been outside in the sun for the past week at camps. He brings gallons of water with him and picks up Gatorade or Powerade drinks too. The good thing about the heat we’re having, my tomatoes are ripening, I was able to have my 1st tomato sandwich of the season yesterday and it was delicious.

Today I have a really quick CAS card for you using a new set I just received from the July-December Mini Catalog. I looked over this set at first, but I have to admit, I LOVE it. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Brightest Beauty Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Stampin’ Up! Go To Greetings Cling Stamp Set for my card today.

My colors are from Color Throwdown Challenge #702.

I got my CAS design from Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #545.

Stampin' Up! Brightest Beauty CAS2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by stamping the leaf image from the Brightest Beauty stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the flower image from the Brightest Beauty stamp set in So Saffron Ink over the leaf image. I randomly stamped the geometric image from the Brightest Beauty stamp set in Pool Party Ink around the outside of the panel.

Stampin' Up! Brightest Beauty CAS3 creativestampingdesigns.com

I cut the stamped panel into 1 1/2″ strips and adhered them to a Basic White Thick card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Brightest Beauty CAS4 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a strip of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Go To Greetings in Crumb Cake Ink. I fussy cut the sentiment using my Paper Snips. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Brightest Beauty CAS5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Brightest Beauty stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the floral image from the Brightest Beauty stamp set on the side of the panel in Pear Pizzazz and So Saffron Inks. I stamped the geometric image from the Brightest Beauty stamp set in Pool Party Ink on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Pool Party mat and then to the inside of the Basic White Thick card base.

Stampin’ Up! Soft Seedlings CAS Thinking of You

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. I hope your weekend is going well. I’ll be at the dog bakery all day today, hopefully getting to give visiting puppies treats.

For today’s card I did the Baby Wipe Technique. For me, fall cards are perfect for this technique. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Soft Seedlings Cling Stamp Set along with the Stampin’ Up! Very Best Occasions Cling Stamp Set for my card today.

I started by taking a baby wipe and folding it in half and placing it in one of my stamp cases. I added drops of Crushed Curry, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, Rich Razzleberry and Sweet Sorbet Ink Refills, making sure to fill in most of the open spaces. The ink drops will run into each other once you press you stamp into it.

I stamped the leaf image from the Soft Seedlings stamp set on the top of a Basic White card front. I stamped the sentiment from the Soft Seedlings stamp set on the bottom of the panel in Tuxedo Black Ink.

I adhered the Basic White card front to a Pumpkin Pie mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to a Basic White Thick card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I tied a small bow using the Black Baker’s Twine from the Baker’s Twine Essential Pack and adhered it to the leaf stem using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Very Best Occasions stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I reinked the leaf image from the Soft Seedlings stamp set using the same inked baby wipe and stamped the leaf image on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Pumpkin Pie mat and then to the inside of the Basic White Thick card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the leaf image from the Soft Seedlings stamp set using the same inked baby wipe that I used for the card. you can see that you can stamp over and over and get different images each time.

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

Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers CAS

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends and welcome to the weekend. I hope you have something fun planned for the weekend.

Today I have a CAS card for you. I pulled out an older set to play with along with my Blending Brushes. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers Cling Stamp Set along with the Stampin’ Up! Go To Greetings Cling Stamp Set for my card today.

My colors today are from Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge #393.

I started by masking off half of a Basic White card front using Post-It Note Tape. Using my Blending Brushes, I added Highland Heather Ink to the top of the panel. I added Coastal Cabana Ink below the Highland Heather and Orchid Oasis on the bottom of the panel. Once I had the depth of color that I wanted I removed the Post-It Note Tape.

I stamped the large sunflower image from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I covered the sunflower with a sticky note mask I had cut out and stamped the leaf image from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set around the sunflower in Tuxedo Black Ink. I stamped the sentiment from the Go To Greetings stamp set on the bottom of the card front in Tuxedo Black Ink.

I adhered the card front to a Coastal Cabana mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to an Orchis Oasis card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a small bow using the Orchid Oasis 1/8″ Metallic Woven Ribbon using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the large sunflower image from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink in 2 of the corners. I added some Highland Heather and Coastal Cabana ink using my Blending Brushes. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Coastal Cabana mat and then to the inside of the Orchid Oasis card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the large sunflower image from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and flap. Using my Blending Brushes, I added color to each of the sunflowers.

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

Stampin’ Up! Hello Harvest 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 Theme Challenge. Here is my card using this week’s Theme.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Hello Harvest Bundle, along with the Stampin’ Up! Very Best Occasions Cling Stamp Set and the Rustic Harvest Designer Series Paper for my card today.

Out Theme this week is Designer Series Paper.

I started by adhering a panel of Rustic Harvest DSP to a Cajun Craze card base. I adhered a strip of the Rustic Harvest DSP to a Cajun Craze mat and then to the bottom of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the banner from the Stampin’ Up! Hello Harvest Cling Stamp Set. I inked just the banner using my Cajun Craze Stampin’ Write Marker. I then stamped the sentiment from the Hello Harvest stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink inside the banner. I cut the banner out using my Rustic Pumpkin Dies.

I adhered the banner to the bottom of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Amber Gems from the Leaf Label & Amber Gems Combo Pack.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Very Best Occasions stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the pumpkin image from the Hello Harvest stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom of the panel and colored it using my Cajun Craze and Mossy meadow Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a strip of the Rustic Harvest DSP to the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Basic Black mat and then to the inside of the Cajun Craze card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the pumpkin image from the Hello Harvest stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and colored it using my Cajun Craze and Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of Rustic Harvest 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. Now that you’ve seen my card, take a minute to hop through and see everyone’s projects today.
