Stampin’ Up! Hello Field Flowers

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends.  How is everyone doing today?  We’re already halfway through the week.  I just love these short weeks.

For today, I kind of have a triple time card, but not really if that makes sense.    I used some new items coming in the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog, some retiring colors and some items carrying over.  Here’s my card for today.

My colors were inspired by Fab Friday Color Challenge #190.  Here are their colors.

I started by embossing a Whisper White panel using the Parisian Flourish 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the panel to a Blushing Bride card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered a panel of the gorgeous new In Good Taste Designer Series Paper to a panel of Blushing Bride cardstock using Snail.  This DSP is just so pretty and looks so real.  Every time I pull it out I have to touch it because it looks almost 3D.  I adhered the matted DSP to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the stem image from the Stampin’ Up! Field of Flowers Photopolymer Stamp Set, (available June 3rd), in Call Me Clover Ink (retiring June 2nd).  I stamped the flower image from the Field of Flowers stamp set in Flirty Flamingo Ink on top of the stems.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips Photopolymer Stamp Set in Call Me Clover Ink on the bottom of the panel.  I adhered the artwork to a Blushing Bride mat using Snail.  I adhered the matted artwork to the DSP panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a scrap of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the small butterfly from the Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Gala Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink twice.  I stamped the fill color image from the Butterfly Gala stamp set in Pineapple Punch Ink on top of the outlined butterfly image.  I punched the butterflies out using the Butterfly Duet Punch, bent the wings forward and adhered them to the artwork using Glue Dots.  I added a few Melon Mambo Rhinestones from the Noble Peacock Rhinestones pack to my artwork.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Call Me Clover Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the stem image from the Field of Flowers stamp set in Call Me Clover Ink on the bottom of the panel.  I stamped the flower image from the Field of Flowers stamp set in Flirty Flamingo Ink on top of the stems.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Whisper White mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Blushing Bride card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the stem image from the Field of Flowers stamp set in Call Me Clover Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped the flower image from the Field of Flowers stamp set in Flirty Flamingo Ink on top of the stems.   I adhered a panel of In Good Taste 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! Breathtaking Bouquet Sneak Peek

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers. Welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop.  How has everyone’s week been?  The weekend is almost upon us, is anyone making plans.  By the time you read this I will probably be elbow deep in butter, sugar and flour.  I’m starting my cookie mixing today.  I’ll be mixing all day and tomorrow and Friday I’ll be baking all day.  I will actually be getting a little bit of help this year.  My daughter doesn’t have as many in person finals, so she will be by my side for part of the time helping with the mixing and shaping of cookie dough.

If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for taking the time to stop by. This week we had a Color Challenge. Be sure to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects.  I have another sneak peek for you today using another new stamp set from the New Mini Catalog.  This is the set I won with Prize Patrol at OnStage in November.  I’ve made a Triple Time Card for you using it.   Here’s my card using our colors.

Here are the colors we had for this week.  I chose Gorgeous Grape for my choice color.

I started by layering the 3 Whisper White panels on top of one another making sure to center them with one another.  Using my Stamparatus I stamped the image from the Stampin’ Up! Breathtaking Bouquet Cling Stamp Set (available Jan 3, 2020) in Smoky Slate Ink on all 3 panels at once.

I adhered each of the pieces of artwork to their matching Gorgeous Grape mats using Snail.  I adhered the smallest matted piece to the top of the medium matted piece using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I wrapped a piece of the Silver 3/8″ Metallic Edged Ribbon around the artwork and tied a bow.  I adhered the largest artwork panel to the Gorgeous Grape card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the other panels to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small piece of Vellum Cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the soon to retire Stampin’ Up! Beauty & Joy Photopolymer Stamp Set in Gorgeous Grape Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using the smallest rectangle from the Stitched Rectangle Dies.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using tiny dots of Multipurpose Liquid Glue in the corners of the rectangle.  I added a few Gorgeous Grape Noble Peacock Rhinestones to the sentiment and the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the new Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips Photopolymer Stamp Set (available Jan 3, 2020), in Gorgeous Grape Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the top part of the Breathtaking Bouquet stamp on the bottom of the panel in Smoky Slate Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Smoky Slate mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Gorgeous Grape card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I adhered a thin strip of the Brights 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to the bottom front of the envelope.  I adhered a panel of the Brights 6 X 6 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.

Stampin’ Up Painted Harvest Triple Time Thank You

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Did anyone do anything fun?  I actually had a really fun day at work Saturday.  The group that I work with are always a lot of fun.  As busy as it was with our bucket sale going on, we laughed and had a really good time which made the day fly by.  Sunday I was able to get some crafting time in, which is always relaxing for me.

For today’s card I used the Triple Time Technique for you  Here’s my card.

My card played along with the Color Throwdown Challenge #554.  Here are their colors.

I started by layering the 3 Whisper White panels of cardstock together with the tiniest amount of Snail just so that they would stay in place while I was stamping.  I first stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up New Wonders Host Exclusive Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of the smallest Whisper White panel.   I then stamped the 1st part of the sunflower from the Stampin’ Up Painted Harvest Photopolymer Stamp Set randomly around using Real Red Ink that I stamped off once.  I then stamped the 2nd part of the flower from the Painted Harvest stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink on top of the 1st part of the flower.

I stamped all the centers of the flowers from the Painted Harvest stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink.  I stamped the seed image from the Painted Harvest stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink in the center of each flower.  I stamped the 1st part of the leaf image from the Painted Harvest stamp set in Old Olive Ink randomly around the layered panels.  I stamped the 2nd part of the leaf image from the Painted Harvest stamp set in Old Olive Ink on top of the 1st image stamping off once.  I carefully took the panels apart and adhered the small and medium one to a Cherry Cobbler mat using Snail.  I adhered all the layered panels together, making sure to line up the flowers and leaves, using Snail.

I wrapped a piece of Linen Thread around the card front 3 times and tied a knot.  With another piece of Linen Thread I made a double bow and adhered it to the card front using a Glue Dot.  I colored a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels using my Dark Basic Black Stampin’ Blends Marker and adhered them to the smallest panel.  I adhered the card front to a Crumb Cake card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped a few more flowers and leaves from the Painted Harvest stamp set the same as I did for the card front on a Whisper White panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat using Snail and adhered it to the inside of the Crumb Cake card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I did not use a sentiment on the inside so that I could write my own thank you.

To finish my card off I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the flowers and leaves from the Painted Harvest stamp set on the front of the envelope and the envelope flap the same as I did for the card front.

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 Chic Triple Time Technique

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers.  How is everyone doing today?  Is anyone starting to make plans for the weekend?

For today’s card I’ve done a Triple Time Technique card for you.  Take a look.

I joined in with the CAS Colours & Sketches challenge #320.  Here are their colors.

I started by cutting all the panels needed for the triple time technique (measurements below).  I layered the Whisper White panels on top of one another making sure they were all centered with each other.

I then began stamping all the leaves from the Stampin’ Up Tropical Chic Stamp Set in Garden Green Ink.  Some I stamped full strength, some I stamped off once and some I stamped off twice.  I was able to get 3 different shades of green by doing this.  I stamped a few of the hibiscus flowers from the same stamp set in Melon Mambo Ink some on the panels and a few on a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock.  The ones on the scrap I cut out using my Tropical Thinlits Dies.  I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set in Melon Mambo Ink in the center of the smallest panel.

Once I was done stamping I began to adhered the Whisper White panels to the Mango Melody mats using Snail.  I then adhered the matted layers on top of one another lining up the stamped images using Snail.  I adhered the cut out hibiscus flowers using Stampin’ Dimensionals on the card front.  I added a few of the Melon Mambo Glitter Enamel Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the leaves from the Tropical Chic stamp set all around a Whisper White panel using Garden Green Ink the same as I did on the card front.  I stamped a few of the flowers from the same stamp set and the sentiment in Melon Mambo Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Mango Melody card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the leaves and flowers from the Tropical Chic stamp set the same as I did for the card on the envelope front.  I adhered a piece of the Tropical Escapes 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to the envelope front.

Thank you for visiting my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try.  This stamp set and dies will be in the upcoming 2019-2020 Annual Catalog, but if you want the bundle price with the 10% discount you must order it before June 3rd.  After that you will have to purchase them individually.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! has posted their retiring lists for the 2018-19 Annual Catalog and 2019 Occasions Catalog.  Head over to my online store to pick up those retiring items now!  They’re only available while supplies last from now through June 3!

A few notes about the lists:

  • Due to high demand for retiring stamp sets, these items will have guaranteed availability until May 24; all other products are not guaranteed and are available while supplies last only.
  • Order deadline to get the retiring products:  June 3, 2019; 11:50 PM (MT)

Please note, some of the bundle items may be carrying over into the new 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.  However, the bundle pricing will go away, so get them while you can at the discounted price!!

Stampin’ Up! Retirement List Clarification

It looks like every single stamp set from the 2018-19 Annual Catalog is being retired and that isn’t the case, the carryover sets are being transitioned to Cling Mount.

The stamp sets offered in clear-mount or wood-mount in the 2018–2019 annual catalog that are carrying over into the 2019–2020 annual catalog will be offered in clear-mount and/or wood-mount until existing inventory has been depleted or until June 4, 2019 (whichever comes first).

If the inventory is depleted, you will be notified of the automatic switch to cling when placing an order for that stamp set. This means that you may end up purchasing select cling stamp sets (in carryover artwork) before they can be ordered from the catalog!  All carryover rubber stamp sets will be available in cling medium only (with the exception of background stamps in North America) beginning June 4, 2019.

You can download copies of the full retiring lists in PDF Form here:

Stampin’ Up Happy Tails Triple Time Technique

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was your weekend?  Hope you were able to do something fun.

For today’s card I did the Triple Time Technique for you and used the new Stampin’ Up Happy Tails Bundle.  Did you know that when you purchase the bundle, Happy Tails stamp set and Dog Builder Punch, you get 10% off.  I love being able to save money any time I can. I just love this dog in the set, you can make many different kinds with it. I decided to make a Dalmatian for today. Take a look.

All the measurements for the layers are listed below.  I started with a small piece of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the dog from the Happy Tails stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on it.  I stamped the spots on top of the dog in Tuxedo Black Ink also.  I punched the dog out using the Dog Builder Punch and set it aside.

I then layered the 3 pieces of Whisper White cardstock, using the tiniest spot of Snail just to hold them in place while I was stamping.  I first stamped the sentiment from the Happy Tails stamp set on the top panel in Tuxedo Black Ink.  I then stamped the dog house from the same stamp set in Soft Suede Ink to the right of the sentiment stamping partially on the second layer, stamping off once.  I stamped the second part of the dog house on top of the first in Soft Suede Ink.  I randomly stamped the paw prints from the same stamp set all around in Tuxedo Black Ink.  Again, I randomly stamped the dog bones in Crumb Cake Ink all around the card front.  I finished the stamping with the Real Red hearts randomly stamped on the 3 layers.

I took the 3 layers apart and matted the top two layers on Basic Black cardstock using Snail.  The largest layer I adhered to a Basic Black card base using Snail.  I lined up each layer, matching the dog house,  paw prints, bones and hearts and adhered them using Snail.

Once all the layers were lined up and adhered together I added the punched dog to the top panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the paw prints from the Happy Tails stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink along the bottom of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up Itty Bitty Birthdays Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Basic Black card base using Snail.

To complete my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the dog from the Happy Tails stamp set on the front of the envelope.  I covered the envelope flap with the Dalmatian spots.

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