Stampin Up Beautiful You Birthday Card

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s weekend?  I had to work all weekend, but Saturday night we went to a Somerset Patriots baseball game and had a bonus since it was a fireworks night.  I haven’t been to a game in a while and it was a lot of fun.  The ball field is only about 10 minutes from my house.  The fireworks afterwards were a lot better than I expected

For today’s card I made a pretty quick one for you using one of my all time favorite sets.  Here’s my card.

I absolutely love these colors together.  These are the colors from Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge #318 which I played along with.

My design came from the Fab Friday Challenge #167 which I also played along with.  Here is their sketch.

I started with a Petal Pink card front and embossed it using my Eyelet Lace Embossing Folder.  I adhered the card front to a Petal Pink card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the image from the Stampin’ Up Beautiful You Cling Stamp Set in Crumb Cake Ink.  I stamped the water mark image from the Beautiful You stamp set on top of the image of the woman in Mint Macaron Ink.  I took a strip of Calypso Coral cardstock and cut it out using my Stitched Lace Dies and then adhered it to the back of the Whisper White panel using Snail.  I adhered the artwork to the embossed card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue

On a panel of Calypso Coral cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Beautiful You stamp set in VersaMark Ink.  I immediately sprinkled it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I cut the sentiment out using the
Stitched Nested Label Dies and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added 3 Pearl Basic Jewels to the top of the artwork.

On the inside I stamped the dancing woman image from the Beautiful You stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink, stamping off twice, in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the Beautiful You stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink on top of the dancing woman image.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a  Mint Macaron mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Petal Pink card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card off I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the woman image from the Beautiful You stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped over the woman image with the water mark image from the Beautiful You stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink.  I adhered a panel of petal pink Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper in petal pink 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 Garden Shed Thank You Card

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  How has your week started out? Can you believe we are already at the last week of June?

For today I have a very clean and simple card for you.  This is as simple as I can get,  Paper, Ink and Stamp, perfect for the beginner stamper.  Here’s my card.

My card played along with the Fab Friday Challenge #166.  Their challenge was to use the 2019-2021 In-Colors.

I started with a Whisper White card front and stamped the largest image from the Stampin’ Up Garden Shed Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I also stamped the small flower pot image from the Garden Shed stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the card front.

I colored the images in using my Pretty Peacock, Purple Posy, Rococo Rose and Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers.  Since we don’t have a Terracotta Tile Stampin’ Blend Marker yet, I used the Terracotta Tile Re-inker and my Aqua Painter filled with alcohol.

I stamped the sentiment from the Garden Shed stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the top of the card front.  I adhered the card front to a Pretty Peacock card base using Snail.

On the inside I stamped the flower pot and watering can image from the Garden Shed stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a Whisper White panel stamping off 3 times.  I stamped the sentiment from the Garden Shed stamp set over the top of the lightly stamped image in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Pretty Peacock card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the flower pot image from the Garden Shed stamp set in Tuxedo blac Memento Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped the flowerpot and watering can image from the Garden Shed stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope flap.  I colored the images in the same as I did for the card front using my Stampin’ Blends Markers.

Thank you for visiting my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try.  This is the perfect card for a beginner stamper using just a Stamp Set, Ink and Paper.   Happy Stamping!!****************************************************************************************************

Stampin’ Up Strong and Beautiful

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers.  The weekend is upon us.  Has anyone made any plans?  I’m hoping to get some craft time in after work tonight and tomorrow, but we’ll see what happens.

For today’s card I have a super quick and easy one for you.  My house is a bit under construction so I had to whip something up quick when I was done packing things up.  Here’s my card.

I started with a card front of the, FREE from Sale-A-Bration with a $50 order, Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Strong & Beautiful Stamp Set in the soon to be retired, Tranquil Tide Ink.   I adhered the DSP to a Tranquil Tide mat using Snail.

Using my Big Shot, I ran the matted card front through using the .Subtle Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  Since the card was so simple I wanted it to have a little texture.  I then adhered the embossed card front to a Blushing Bride card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I added a few Tranquil Tide Share What You Love Artisan Pearls to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Strong & Beautiful stamp set in Tranquil Tide Ink on a Whisper White panel.  I adhered a strip of the Petal Promenade DSP to the bottom of the panel using Snail.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Tranquil Tide mat using Snail 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 adhered Petal Promenade DSP to the envelope front and  the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. This has to be one of the quickest cards I’ve ever made.  I let the Designer Series Paper do most of the work for me.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up Incredible Like You Birthday Card

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers.  It’s Friday and we made it through another week.  Did everyone have a nice Valentine’s Day?

For today’s card I used the Stampin’ Up Incredible Like You Stamp Set and the Celebrate You Thinlits Dies to create a birthday card for you.  Take a look.

I started with a panel of the beautiful All My Love Designer Series Paper and adhered it to a Lovely Lipstick card base.  On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I first stamped the leaf images from the Incredible Like You stamp set in Call Me Clover and Soft Sea Foam Inks.  I then stamped the tiny flowers in Highland Heather Ink.  I stamped the larger 2-step flower image first in Flirty Flamingo Ink for the detailed image then in Flirty Flamingo Ink again stamping off once for the inside color.

Using my Big Shot I cut the Celebrate and You out from the Celebrate You Thinlits Dies in Lovely Lipstick cardstock.  Before I cut them I adhered a piece of Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets to the back of the paper so that I just had to peel and stick after cutting.

I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Lovely Lipstick mat using Snail and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a Lovely Lipstick knot from the All My Love Ribbon Combo Pack, to the top of the Whisper White panel using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the flower stems from the Incredible Like You stamp set in Call Me Clover Ink along the bottom of a Whisper White Panel.  I stamped the tiny flowers in Lovely Lipstick Ink on the stems.  I stamped the larger 2-step flower the same as I did on the card front in Flirty Flamingo Ink in the center of the Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from  the same stamp set in Lovely Lipstick Ink over the flower.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Flirty Flamingo mat using Snail then to the inside of the Lovely Lipstick card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the stems from the Incredible Like You stamp set along the bottom of the envelope front in Call Me Clover Ink.  I stamped the tiny flowers alternating, in Lovely Lipstick and Highland Heather Inks on the stems.  I adhered a piece of All My Love 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 Vertical Greetings for Paper Craft Crew

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers and Happy New Year to you all.  Hope you had fun ringing in 2019.  Has anyone made any New Year’s resolutions?

For today’s card I played along with the Paper Craft Crew Challenge #319.  Be sure to stop by Paper Craft Crew to play along and see everyone’s projects.  Here is their sketch.

Here is what I came up with.  Take a look.

I started with a Balmy Blue card base and adhered a piece of the beautiful All My Love Designer Series Paper to the front using Snail.  I then adhered a piece 1/2″ Lovely Lipstick Ribbon from All My Love Ribbon Combo Pack (available in just 2 days).

On a small piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the image from the Stampin’ Up Vertical Greeting stamp set.  I colored the stamp in using my Balmy Blue, Lovely Lipstick and Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Write Markers.  I adhered the artwork to a Balmy Blue mat using Snail then adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Using my Big Shot I cut out 3 of the smallest hearts from the Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies in Lovely Lipstick cardstock.  I adhered the heats to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside on a Whisper White panel, I stamped the heart from the Vertical Greetings stamp set in Lovely Lipstick Ink stamping off 3 times to get a very light image.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Forever Lovely stamp set (available January 3, 2019), in Lovely Lipstick Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Lovely Lipstick mat using Snail then to the Balmy Blue card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the image from the Vertical Greetings stamp set on the envelope front the same way I stamped it on the card.  I adhered a piece of All My Love DSP on the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card.  The stamp set is available from the Annual Catalog and the DSP and Framelits Dies will be available on January 3, in just 2 days.   The new 2019 Occasions Catalog and the Sale-A-Bration Catalog start on January 3, in just 2 days, YAY!  You’re going to love all the new products.   Happy Stamping!
