Stampin’ Up! Forever Blossoms for The Card Concepts

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. We’re halfway through the week already and on our way to the weekend. I hope you are starting to make some plans.

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

I used the Stampin’ Up! Forever Blossoms Cling Stamp Set for my clean and layered card. I was inspired by the Heart Wreath and Colors from the photo.

I hope you will take a moment to visit The Card Concepts and join us for our challenge #168.  How are you inspired by this photo?

I started by embossing a Basic White card front using the Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to a Basic White Thick card base.

I cut the heart from a panel of Basic White cardstock using the Bouquet of Love Dies. This heart was used as my template for making the wreath. I cut 4 of the largest leaf dies from the Forever Flourishing Dies from a panel of Garden Green cardstock. I cut the leaves apart from the stem using my Paper Snips. I cut the larger flowers from panels of Flirty Flamingo and Petal Pink using my Cherry Blossoms Dies. I cut the tiny flowers from the panel of Petal Pink using my Bouquet of Love Dies.

I stamped the center of the heart with the sentiment from the Forever Blossoms stamp set in Flirty Flamingo Ink. I arranged the leaf dies around the heart the way I wanted them using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I arranged the larger flowers in a cluster on one side of the heart adhering some of them with Glue Dots and some with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered a few small flowers on the wreath using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the wreath to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the wreath.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Love & Happiness Cling Stamp Set in Flirty Flamingo Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the leaf images from the Forever Blossoms stamp set on the bottom of the panel in Garden Green Ink. I adhered the extra die cut flowers using Glue Dots on top of the leaves. I adhered the Basic White panel to the inside of the Basic White Thick card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the flower images from the Forever Blossoms stamp set on the envelope front and flap in Flirty Flamingo and Petal Pink Inks. I masked the flowers and stamped the leaf images from the Forever Blossoms stamp set around the flowers in Garden Green Ink.

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

Stampin’ Up! Special Moments Sweet Little Box

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend? I was able to have a fairly relaxing day yesterday, which was nice. I had time to sit at my craft table and get things ready for my next class on Tuesday along with getting a couple cards made.

I don’t have a card for you today. I have something different. I have a project this time that is so easy to make, I was able to get 6 of them done in no time at all. Here’s my project.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Special Moments Sale-a-bration Photopolymer Stamp Set for my sentiment on my little box today.

I adhered 2 panels of the Sweet Talk Designer Series Paper to the front and back of the cute little Sweet Little Boxes.

Once I adhered the DSP, I put the Sweet Little Boxes together. They come with adhesive on the sides so all you have to do is fold all the score lines and put them together.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Special Moments stamp set in Highland Heather Ink. I cut the sentiment out using the heart from the Give It A Whirl Dies. I adhered the heart to the front of the box using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the sentiment.

The box will hold 2 of the Ghirardelli Heart candies without bulging. I closed the box and wrapped a piece of Highland Heather 1/2″ Grosgrain Ribbon around the box and tied a bow on the top.

Stampin’ Up! Love & Happiness Valentine

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone’s weekend going? I ended up working all day yesterday and it was like watching paint dry. There were customers, but it seemed like 1 would come in and check out then the next one would come in. Everyone buying salt, shovels and things to fix their snow blower. I have off today though YAY!!

I played with one of the DSP’s from the January-June 2022 Mini Catalog for today’s card. I don’t usually make Valentine cards, but I’ve made a few this year. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Love & Happiness Bundle along with the Sweet Talk Designer Series Paper or my card today.

I started by adhering a panel of Sweet Talk DSP to a Gorgeous Grape card base. I adhered 1 long panel of the Sweet Talk DSP to a Gorgeous Grape mat and adhered it to the left side of the card front.

I adhered 2 smaller panel of the Sweet Talk DSP to Gorgeous Grape mats and adhered them to the right side of the card front.

I cut and embossed a panel of Basic White cardstock using the Bouquet of Love Hybrid Embossing Folder. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Love & Happiness Cling Stamp Set on the panel of Basic White cardstock in Gorgeous Grape ink. I cut the sentiment out using my Bouquet of Love Dies and adhered it to the center of the heart. I adhered the heart to the center of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Iridescent Rhinestones Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Encircled In Friendship Cling Stamp Set in Gorgeous Grape ink. I adhered a strip of the Sweet Talk DSP to the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Gorgeous Grape mat and then to the inside of the Gorgeous Grape card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of the Sweet Talk DSP on the envelope front and a panel on 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! Meant To Be Valentine

Good Sunday morning my fellow stampers. Happy Super Bowl Sunday!! I hope if your team is playing tonight, it’s a good game. It was a busy day at work yesterday, almost 200 shovels were sold. I don’t know what everyone does with the ones they bought last weekend. We’re back to snowing here!! Last I heard we’re expecting another 8″. I’ll be sending everyone else out to shovel this time. The mounds are too high for me to throw the snow over, plus I’m planning on staying in today and stamping.

I have another quick and easy Valentine card for you today. I have to admit, when I first got this Acetate Paper, I wasn’t sure what to do with it. Now I have so many ideas running through my head, I can’t keep up. I did use multiple stamp set for my card, since I couldn’t make up my mind. Here’s my simple card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Meant To Be Cling Stamp Set for my card along with the Fine Art Floral Designer Series Paper and the Golden Garden Designer Specialty Acetate Paper. I played along with Just Us Girls challenge #570. They have a Word Week and it’s Valentine.

I started by adhering the Golden Garden paper to a panel of Fine Art Floral DSP using Glue Dots in spots that were not going to be noticeable. I adhered the card front to a Soft Suede mat using Stampin’ Seal.

I wrapped a piece of the 3/8″ Fine Art Ribbon around the top of the panel and tied a bow. I adhered the matted card front to a Petal Pink card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Petal Pink card stock I stamped the sentiment from the Meant To Be stamp set in Soft Suede Ink. I stamped the small flower from the Stampin’ Up! Art Gallery Photopolymer Stamp Set in Petal Pink Ink over the bottom of the sentiment. I cut the sentiment out using the Many Hearts Dies. I adhered the heart to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and added a few Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Moments Cling Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the small flower from the Art Gallery stamp set in Petal Pink Ink on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Soft Suede mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Petal Pink card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the small flower from the Art Gallery stamp set in Petal Pink Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of Fine Art Floral 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! Lots Of Heart Valentine

Good Saturday morning my fellow stampers. How has everyone’s weekend started off? Is anyone doing anything fun? I have work all day today, but I’m off tomorrow, YAY!!! We’re expecting it to be a really busy day at the store due to more snow coming tomorrow. 2 1/2 feet wasn’t enough for us to get this week and of course nobody has shovels or salt, so they will be in. Will anyone be watching the Super Bowl? My husband will have it on, but his team isn’t playing so it’ll probably be more background noise. He’s a huge Pittsburg Steelers fan, me I’m not a big football fan at all. Growing up my father liked all sports, but never was a fan of specific teams. He just liked to watch the games.

I have another quick and easy Valentine card for you today using one of the new sets from the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Lots Of Heart Bundle for my card today. This is a sketch from my Upline Jaimie along with colors she gave us to work with.

I started by embossing a Real Red card front using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the embossed panel to a Basic Black mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the matted panel to a Real Red card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On 3 strips of Pool Party cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Lots Of Heart Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I used washi tape to cover the words I wasn’t stamping on each strip. I adhered the strips on the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue so that I had a little wiggle room to get them lined up.

On a strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the row of hearts image from the Lots Of Heart stamp set in Real Red Ink. I cut the strip into a banner using my Banners Pick A Punch. I adhered the banner to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Resin Hearts to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from Lots Of Heart stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the small flower image from the Lots Of Heart stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on either side of the sentiment and colored them in using my Pool Party and Real Red Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut a heart out under the sentiment using the Many Hearts Dies. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Basic Black mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Real Red card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the small flower image from Lots Of Heart stamp set on the envelope front and flap. I colored the flowers in using my Pool Party and Real Red Stampin’ Blends Markers.

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

Stampin’ Up! Lovely You Valentine

Happy February my fellow stampers. How was everyone’s weekend? Did anyone do anything fun? Plans changed for me very quickly yesterday morning. I was only supposed to go into work for a couple hours in the office to close out the month, I ended up there all day. One of my cashiers got her 2nd Covid shot and had a reaction, so that left us short handed. I got my main work done, then I was out running a register for the remainder of the day because it was so busy. We’re getting hit with a snow storm and suddenly no one has shovels or salt. Yesterday was my husbands birthday so those plans changed too. My daughter did still baked him a yummy chocolate cake with 7 minute frosting though.

I have a really quick and easy Valentine card for you today. Take a look.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Lovely You Cling Stamp Set for my card along with the gorgeous Love You Always Specialty Designer Series Paper.

I started by adhering a panel of the Love You Always Specialty DSP to a Sahara Sand mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the matted panel to a Blushing Bride card base using Stampin’ Seal.

I stamped the sentiment from the Lovely You stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the small flower image from the Lovely You stamp set in Blushing Bride Ink in the corners of the panel. I cut a panel of Love You Always Foil Sheet using the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. I adhered the artwork to the foil mat using Stampin’ Seal.

I adhered a piece of the Blushing Bride 3/8″ Metallic Ribbon to the card front using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the matted sentiment over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the sentiment panel.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Heart To Heart Photopolymer Stamp Set in Sahara Sand Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the small flower image from the Lovely You stamp set in Blushing Bride Ink on either side of the sentiment. I adhered a strip of the Love You Always Specialty DSP to the bottom of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Sahara Sand mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Blushing Bride card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the small flower image from the Lovely You stamp set in Blushing Bride Ink in the corners of the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the Love You Always Specialty DSP to the envelope flap.

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

Stampin’ UP! Snailed It for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Is anyone doing anything for the weekend? I’ll be at work all weekend, as usual.

Today’s card I made on my Facebook Live video on Wednesday. If you were able to join me or watched the replay, thank you very much. If you’d like to watch my video and stamp along, the measurements are below along with the links to my Facebook page and my YouTube channel. Here’s my card that I made.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Snailed It Bundle and Snail Mail Designer Series Paper for my card today. It’s such a fun bundle to play with.

I started by adhering a panel of Snail Mail DSP to a Real Red card base using Stampin’ Seal. Using my Paper Trimmer I lined the outside edge of the card at the 3″ mark. I placed the blade at the 3″ mark on the ruler and cut down to the 5/8″ mark. I turned the card base so the bottom is lined up on the trimmer and the side is at the 3″ mark. I place the blade at the 3 5/8″ mark and cut down to the 1 1/4″ mark. I carefully flipped the cut panel around.

I adhered a small panel of Snail Mail DSP to a Bermuda Bay mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the flipped corner using Stampin’ Seal. On a small panel of Bermuda Bay cardstock I stamped the image from the Stampin’ Up! Snailed It Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I cut the image out using the Rectangle Postage Stamp Punch and adhered it the the corner section using Stampin Dimensionals. I added a Resin Heart Embellishment to the punched image.

I fussy cut the snail from another panel of the Snail Mail DSP and adhered it to the corner of the flip fold using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Punch Party Sale-A-Bration Host Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Stampin’ Up! Family Party Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped one of the snail images from the Snailed It stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image in using my Bermuda Bay, Petal Pink and Real Red Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of the Snail Mail DSP to the inside of the Real Red card base using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the Basic White panel to the DSP a little off centered so you can’t see it when the card is closed. I cut out 2 mushrooms using the Snail dies, one in Bermuda Bay and one in Real Red cardstocks. I switched the dots on each mushroom and adhered them to the inside panel using Glue Dots.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the snail image from the Snailed It stamp set on the envelope front in Tuxedo Black Ink and colored it in using my Bermuda Bay, Petal Pink and Real Red Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of Snail Mail 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. The list of measurements are below if you’d like to stamp along while watching the video. You can watch my video on my Facebook page Here.

You can also view the video on my YouTube channel Here. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Meant To Be Valentine

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers. How was everyone’s weekend? Hope you were able to enjoy it. Are you ready to face another full week? I’m so happy to be back to my normal work schedule. I’m a very schedule oriented person and I like when I can plan my days in advance.

For today I’m using a mix of old and new for my card. I’m using a stamp set from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog and some DSP from the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Meant To Be Cling Stamp Set and the Stampin’ Up! Touched My Heart Host Cling Stamp Set for my card today.

I started by adhering a panel of the Love You Always Specialty Designer Series Paper to a Sahara Sand mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the card front to a Blushing Bride card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Using the Stitched Be Mine Dies I cut the strip of hearts from a panel of Love You Always Foil Sheet in Blushing Bride. I adhered it to the card front using tiny amounts of Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I added a few of the hearts back in the cut out and on the card front using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped one of the heart images from the Meant To Be stamp set in Blushing Bride Ink. I stamped the sentiment from the Touched My Heart Host stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink, overlapping the heart. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Blushing Bride mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a small bow made from the new Blushing Bride 3/8″ Metallic Ribbon using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Meant To Be stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. Using the Stitched Be Mine Dies, I cut both sides of the panel with the scalloped edge. I adhered some of the foil hearts from the die cut on the card front using Glue Dots down the one side of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Sahara Sand mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Blushing Bride card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped another one of the heart images from the Meant To Be stamp set in Blushing Bride Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the Love You Always Specialty 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! Posted For You Love CAS

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. Is everyone having a good weekend? I’m going into work today. It seemed very odd having yesterday off, I’m definitely not complaining. I usually work every Saturday so it was nice not having to get up and out of the house early.

I have a pretty Clean and Simple card for you today, at least I think it is. I used the Stampin’ Up! Posted For You Bundle along with the Peony Garden Designer Series Paper. Here’s my card for today.

My colors are from the Global Design Project #273.

I started by stamping the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Posted For You Cling Stamp Set on the bottom of a panel of the Peony Garden DSP in Night of Navy Ink. I adhered the panel to a Night of Navy card base using Stampin’ Seal.

I embossed a strip of Soft Seafoam cardstock using the Parisian Flourish 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the image from the Posted For You stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink and colored it in using my Petal Pink and Soft Seafoam Stampin’ Blends Markers. I punched the image out using the Rectangle Postage Stamp Punch and adhered it to a Night of Navy mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Night of Navy Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Prized Peony Cling Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the small flower from the Prized Peony stamp set on the bottom of the panel in Tuxedo Black Ink and colored it in using my Petal Pink and Soft Seafoam Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Petal Pink mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Night of Navy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the small flower from the Prized Peony stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom front of the envelope and colored them in using my Petal Pink and Soft Seafoam Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of Peony Garden 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!!
