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!!

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.

Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Prints Panel Card

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends and welcome to the weekend. I hope you have some fun plans in the works for the weekend.

Today’s card we made at our last Stamping Studio Meeting. After we’re done with the business part of the meeting, we do some Mystery Stamping. My upline Jaimie gives us very vague information, the measurements of the paper we need. She talks us through the process, and we put the card together. The cards all come out differently, but the same. Here’s my card from Mystery Stamping.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Prints Cling Stamp Set for my card today.

I joined in with The Male Room Monochrome Challenge #164.

I started by embossing a Night of Navy card front using the Fern 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the card front to a Night of Navy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On 3 panels of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the fern image from the Nature’s Prints stamp set in Night of Navy Ink randomly on the panels. I adhered the Basic White panels to Smoky Slate mats using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panels to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Night of Navy cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Nature’s Print stamp set in Versamark Ink. I sprinkled it with my White Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I fussy cut the sentiment using my Paper Snips and adhered it to the card front using Glue Dots. I tied a small bow using the Simply Elegant Trim and adhered it by the sentiment using a Glue Dot. I added a few Rhinestones Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Nature’s Prints stamp set in Night of Navy Ink. I stamped the fern image from the Nature’s Prints stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on the sides of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Smoky Slate mat and then to the inside of the Night of Navy card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the fern image from the Nature’s Prints stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of Sun Prints Designer Series Paper 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! Happy Hedgehogs for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

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

I used the Stampin’ Up! Happy Hedgehogs Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Design A Daydream Designer Series Paper and the 2022-2024 In-Color 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my card today.

Here is our theme for this week.

I started by adhering a panel of Design A Daydream DSP to a Mint Macaron card base. I adhered a strip of the 2022-2024 In-Color DSP to the card front.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the hedgehog image from the Happy Hedgehogs stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I masked the image using the Stampin’ Up! Masking Paper and stamped the tree image from the Happy Hedgehogs stamp set over the hedgehog image in tuxedo Black Ink. I stamped the butterfly image from the Happy Hedgehogs stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the hedgehogs’ nose. I colored the images using my Crumb Cake, Flirty Flamingo, Ivory, Mint Macaron, Pale Papaya, Soft Suede, Soft Succulent, So Saffron and Sweet Sorbet Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image our using the 4th largest Deckled Rectangle Dies. I adhered the image to a Pale Papaya mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Happy Hedgehogs stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I cut the sentiment out using the smallest Deckled Rectangle Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the top of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Fine Sparkle Adhesive-Backed Gems (available July 1st) to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Happy Hedgehogs stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the mushroom and bird images from the Happy Hedgehogs stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom of the panel. I colored the images in using my Calypso Coral, Crumb Cake, Pale Papaya, Soft Succulent, Soft Suede, So Saffron and Sweet Sorbet Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Mint Macaron mat and then to the inside of the Mint Macaron card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the hedgehog and butterfly images from the Happy Hedgehogs stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I colored the images in using my Crumb Cake, Flirty Flamingo, Ivory and Sweet Sorbet Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of Design A Daydream DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Simply Fabulous Hello

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend? It was gorgeous here and of course I was inside both days working.

Today’s card is one that we’re going to make at my class on Tuesday night. I wanted to try something a little different but easy. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Simply Fabulous Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Lovely In Linen Designer Series Paper and the Stripes & Splatter 3D Embossing Folder for my card today.

This is my template for my DSP. I took a 6 X 6 panel of the Lovely In Linen DSP and marked 1″ from each corner. I lightly drew lines from my little pencil marks. I then cut the paper in 4 pieces using my Paper Trimmer. This will give you 4 panels to make 4 cards.

I adhered a panel of the Lovely In Linen DSP to a Very Vanilla card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I embossed the small panel of Sweet Sorbet cardstock using the Splatter embossing folder from the Stripes & Splatter 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the panel to the bottom of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue lining it up with the DSP

I stamped the sentiment from the Simply Fabulous stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink on the Very Vanilla card front panel above the DSP and embossed panel. I adhered the layered panel to an Evening Evergreen card base. I added a few 2021-2023 In-Color Opal Rounds to the card front.

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Simply Fabulous stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink on a Very Vanilla panel. I stamped the leaf image from the Simply Fabulous stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink on either side of the panel stamped full strength and stamped off once. I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Sweet Sorbet mat and then to the inside of the Evening Evergreen card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Very Vanilla Medium Envelope. I stamped the leaf image from the Simply Fabulous stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink full strength and stamped off on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of Lovely In Linen 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! Treasured Kindness 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. Today is my daughter’s 24th birthday. I can’t believe that 24 years have gone by that quickly. She’s not only my daughter but my friend. We do most everything together. Unfortunately for the first time in years she has class today. Being a Memorial Day baby, she would almost always have her birthday off. Our plans are to celebrate it on Saturday with her friend and Monday with a small picnic.

If you are hopping over from Akiko Sudano’s blog, thank you for stopping by. This week we have a Sketch Challenge. Here is my card using this week’s Sketch.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Treasured Kindness Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Flowering Fields Designer Series Paper for my card today.

This is our sketch for this week.

I started by adhering a panel of Flowering Fields DSP to a Pear Pizzazz card base.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sun image from the Treasured Kindness stamp set in So Saffron Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper, in the center of the panel. I stamped the tree image from the Treasured Kindness stamp set. I stamped the tree trunk in Soft Suede Ink stamping the detailed full strength and the fill image stamped off once on scrap paper. I stamped the treetop stamping the detailed image in Pear Pizzazz Ink and the fill image in Soft Sea Foam Ink. I stamped the ground image from the Treasured Kindness stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink below the tree. I cut the panel using my Deckled Rectangle Dies (which have become my new favorite dies) and adhered it to the card base.

On a strip of So Saffron cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Treasured Kindness stamp set in Soft Suede Ink. I adhered the sentiment strip to a strip of Pear Pizzazz cardstock using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sun image from the Treasured Kindness stamp set in So Saffron Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the sentiment from the Treasured Kindness stamp set in Soft Suede Ink over the sun. I stamped the tree image from the Treasured Kindness stamp set on the bottom of the panel the same as I did for the card front. I adhered the Basic White panel to a So Saffron mat and then to the inside of the Pear Pizzazz card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the tree image from the Treasured Kindness stamp set on the envelope front the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of Flowering Fields DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for visiting my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Now that you’ve seen my card, take a minute to hop through and see everyone’s projects today.

Stampin’ Up! Bottled Happiness Sneak Peek CAS

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends and welcome to the weekend. I hope you have something fun planned. I’ll be at work both today and tomorrow, and of course it’s supposed to be a beautiful weekend. Yesterday I was able to pull all my flowerpots from last summer out. I have an overhang in the back of my house where I slide all my plants under hoping they will make it through the winter. My rose bushes have green leaves on them already and my foxgloves are starting to sprout. Hopefully the weather will stay on the warmer side, so I don’t have to cover them up again.

Today’s card is a really simple one. I asked my daughter to pick colors for me to use for this one. I told her to pick 2 of the 2022-2024 In-Colors. After I was stamping with them for a minute, I realized the last card I did with In-Colors were the exact same colors. She is definitely my daughter. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Bottled Happiness Photopolymer Stamp Set (available May 3rd) along with the Stampin’ Up! Flowering Tulips Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Tea Boutique 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper (available May 3rd) for my card today.

I started by adhering a panel of the Tea Boutique DSP to an Orchis Oasis card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the outline detailed bottle image form the Bottled Happiness stamp set in Parakeet Party Ink. I stamped the bottle image from the Bottled Happiness stamp set in Parakeet Party Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper, over the outlined image. I stamped the fern image from the Bottled Happiness stamp set in Orchid Oasis Ink on top of the bottle.

I stamped the sentiment from the Bottled Happiness stamp set in Orchid Oasis Ink next to the bottle. I adhered the Basic White panel to an Orchid Oasis mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Flowering Tulips stamp set in Orchid Oasis Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the fern image from the Bottled Happiness stamp set in Orchid Oasis Ink on the bottom of the panel. I adhered a strip of the Tea Boutique DSP to the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Parakeet Party mat and then to the inside of the Orchid Oasis card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the fern image from the Bottled Happiness stamp set in Orchid Oasis on the envelope front in full strength and stamped off once. I adhered a panel of the Tea Boutique DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my CAS card and will give it a try. Items I used today will be available for purchase on May 3rd which is in just 10 days. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Art Gallery for The Card Concepts Challenge

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. We’re halfway through the week already and on our way to the weekend. It’s supposed to be a beautiful spring day here in NJ. We’ll have to see what happens 😉

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

I used the Stampin’ Up! Art Gallery Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the 2022-2024 In-Color 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper (available May 3) and the Brushstroke Specialty Paper (available May 3) for my Clean and Layered card. I was inspired by the flowers on the pillow and the colors from the photo.

I hope you will take a moment to visit The Card Concepts and join us for our challenge #173.  How are you inspired by this photo?

I started by embossing a Soft Suede card front using the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered a panel of the new 2022-2024 In-Color DSP to the card front. I adhered the card front to a Soft Suede card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered a panel of the new Brushstroke Specialty Paper to a Soft Suede mat and then to the card front. On a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock, I stamped the stem image from the Art Gallery stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink. I stamped the solid flower image from the Art Gallery stamp set in Blushing Bride Ink on the stem. I stamped the detailed flower image from the Art Gallery stamp set in Sweet Sorbet Ink over the solid image. I cut the panel using the largest circle from the new Stylish Shapes Dies (available May 3) and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the panel of Very Vanilla cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Art Gallery stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink and cut it out using the Stylish Shapes Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I tied a double bow using the Very Vanilla Bakers Twine from the Baker’s Twine Essential Pack and adhered it to the stem using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Celebrating You Cling Stamp Set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on a Very Vanilla panel. I stamped the smaller flower image from the Art Gallery stamp set in Blushing Bride Ink above and below the sentiment. I tore the edges of the panel and sponged them with some Soft Suede Ink. I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Blushing Bride mat and then to the inside of the Soft Suede card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Very Vanilla Medium Envelope. I stamped the flower image from the Art Gallery stamp set on the envelope front the same as I did for the card front. I adhered a panel of the 2022-2024 In-Color DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Some of the products used for my card today won’t be available until May 3 from the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Through It Together

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone doing today? We’re halfway through the week and on our way to the weekend already.

Today’s card is another one we made last night at our Stamp Camp. My card design is from a friend and team member Terry Lynn Bright. My main focus at this month’s class was using designer series paper. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Through It Together Cling Stamp Set along with the Pattern Party Host Designer Series Paper and the Brilliant Wings Dies for my card today.

I started by adhering a Pattern Party DSP card front to a Basic White Thick card base.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from Through It Together stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink down the center of the panel. I embossed the panel using the Stripes & Splatters 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to a Granny Apple Green mat. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Using my Brilliant Wings Dies, I cut the solid butterfly from a panel of Rainbow Glimmer Paper. I cut the detailed butterfly from a panel of Vellum Paper. I adhered the Vellum butterfly to the Rainbow Glimmer butterfly just on the body. I adhered the butterfly to the layered panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I added a few Black Classic Matte Dots to the body.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from Through It Together stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I adhered a strip of Pattern Party DSP to the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Granny Apple Green 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 adhered a strip of Pattern Party DSP to the envelope front and a panel 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! New Shipping Fees Beginning April 1

I want to let you know about a change to Stampin’ Up!’s shipping and handling pricing.  Starting April 1, the minimum shipping charge will increase by $1.00, from $6.95 to $7.95—or by one percentage point, from 10% to 11% of the total order amount—whichever is greater.

If you ever use the expedited shipping options, those fees are going up a bit too.  Here are the new fees for expedited shipping:

  • Next Day Upgrade: $38.00 USD ($3.00 USD increase from the previous rate)
  • 2nd Day Upgrade: $23.00 USD ($3.00 USD increase from the previous rate)
  • 3 Day Shipping Upgrade: $15.00 USD ($5.00 USD increase from the previous rate)
  • The expedited shipping option rates above are calculated in addition to the standard shipping rate (e.g., the next day shipping option would cost $7.95 USD or 11%—whichever is greater—plus $38.00 USD)

I want to make sure you’re aware of this change, as it impacts both you and me.  Stampin’ Up! has worked to keep the increase as minimal as possible so they can continue bringing you the unique, high-quality, and coordinated paper crafting products that you love.
