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!!

Stampin’ Up! Special Someone Valentine

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone’s weekend starting off? I actually have the day off, which is very unusual for a weekend with me. I was able to get my entire house undecorated yesterday except for my tree. My husband will be taking that down today, I can’t touch it since I’m allergic to it. I always hate undecorating and having to pack everything away. The good part is, I’ll be bringing out all my snowmen and winter decorations soon, once I give the house a good cleaning.

For today’s card the owner of where I get my hair done asked me to make her a few Valentine’s cards. She wants one for each of her grandchildren and one for her husband. Here’s the 1st one I made for her granddaughter.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Special Someone Photopolymer Stamp Set for my card.

I started by embossing a panel of Magenta Madness using the Lace 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered a panel of Flowers For Every Season 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to the panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I wrapped a piece of Magenta Madness 1/4″ 2020-2022 In-Color Ribbon around the panel and tied a bow. I adhered the card front to a Magenta Madness card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the outline raccoon image from the Special Someone stamp set in Early Espresso Ink. I stamped the fill image in Sahara Sand Ink over the outline image. I stamped a couple of the butterflies from the Special Someone stamp set in Early Espresso Ink by the raccoon and colored them in using my Bumblebee Stampin’ Write Marker. I cut the racoon out using the Stitched Shapes Dies. On the same panel I stamped the heart balloon outline image from the Special Someone stamp set in Poppy Parade Ink. I stamped the heart balloon fill image over the outline image in Poppy Parade Ink, stamping off once. I stamped the string image in Early Espresso Ink. I cut the balloon and string out using the Special Day Dies. Using the Layering Ovals Dies I cut the scalloped oval from a panel of Poppy Parade cardstock. I adhered the raccoon image to the scalloped oval using Stampin’ Seal and adhered it to the card front over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the balloon to the string using a Glue Dot and adhered it to the raccoon using a Glue Dot. I had cut a tiny bow from a scrap of Poppy Parade using the Special Day Dies and adhered it to the string by the raccoons paws using a Glue Dot.

On a strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Special Someone stamp set in Magenta Madness Ink. I cut the sentiment out using the Tasteful Labels Dies and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Family Party Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Stampin’ Up! A Wish For Everything Cling Stamp Set in Magenta Madness Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the outline balloon image from the Special Someone stamp set in Poppy Parade Ink in 2 of the corners. I stamped the balloon fill image over the outline image in Poppy Parade Ink, stamped off once. I stamped a couple of the butterfly images from the Special Someone stamp set in Early Espresso Ink by the sentiment. I colored the butterflies in using my Bumblebee Stampin’ Write Marker. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Poppy Parade mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Magenta Madness card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the outline raccoon image from the Special Someone stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the envelope front. I stamped the raccoon fill image over the outline image in Sahara Sand Ink. I adhered a panel of the Flowers For Every Season 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! Celebration Tidings Valentine

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  We’re halfway through the week already and on the downhill to the weekend.  It’s been gorgeous weather here.  I’ve had my windows open all day and night.  After being without A/C all summer this is most welcoming.

Before I get to my card, I just wanted to let everyone know about World Card Making Day, Saturday October 3rd.  Our Inkin’ Krew Team will be doing videos all day, every hour.  I will actually be doing 2 Facebook Live videos that day.  I will post a schedule when we get closer.

Today’s card is the last card that we made on Sunday at our virtual in person team meeting.  The Stampin’ Up! Celebration Tidings Bundle has all different occasions in it.  This is such an awesome bundle to have that can be used over and over again.  It covers Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and Valentine’s Day.  What’s not to love about a bundle like this.  Here’s my card which was a design by my team member Sue.  Sue only used the stamp set for her design, I did have to adjust it a little since I didn’t have some of the items she was using.

I started by embossing a Whisper White panel using the Scripty 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the embossed panel to a Melon Mambo card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered a panel of Plaid Tidings 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Seaside Spray mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

From another panel of the Plaid Tidings DSP I cut the stitched heart from the Stitched Be Mine Dies.  I then cut a scalloped stitched heart from the Stitched Be Mine Dies.  I adhered the 2 hearts together using Stampin’ Dimensionals around the edges on the back and adhered it to the card front.  On a piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Celebration Tidings Photopolymer Stamp Set in Melon Mambo Ink.

Using my Paper Snips, I cut the words out separately and adhered them to the heart using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added some Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the heart and the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Meant To Be Cling Stamp Set in Melon Mambo Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the heart with the scroll from the Celebration Tidings stamp set on the top of the panel and the small hearts from the Celebration Tidings stamp set randomly around in Melon Mambo Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Seaside Spray mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Melon Mambo card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the heart with the scroll and the small heart from the Celebration Tidings stamp set in Melon Mambo Ink on the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of Plaid Tidings DSP to the envelope flap.

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

Stampin’ Up! Heart To Heart Poppies

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  We’ve made it half way through the week already.  How is everyone doing today?  It’s been like spring here the past couple days.  I know this is just a tease before the freezing weather starts, but it’s been nice.

Today’s card is another one we did at our Stamp Camp class last night.  I wanted to do all pretty easy cards and wanted at least one where the designer paper did all the work.  Here’s my card.

I started by cutting the Rich Razzleberry card front using the largest Stitched Rectangle Die.  I cut the Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper using the 3rd from the largest Stitched Rectangle Die.  I adhered the DSP to the Rich Razzleberry mat using Snail and adhered it to the Old Olive card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Heart To Heart Photopolymer Stamp Set in Rich Razzleberry Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using the Stitched Rectangle Dies.  I cut the scallop edge piece from the Painted Labels Dies out of a scrap of Rich Razzleberry cardstock.  I adhered the scallop edge to the bottom of the sentiment using Snail.

I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I colored 2 of the Heart Epoxy Droplets using my Dark Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends Marker and adhered them to the sentiment.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Heart To Heart stamp set in Rich Razzleberry Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the small heart below the sentiment from the Heart To Heart stamp set colored with my Old Olive and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Write Markers.  I stamped the small Heart from the Heart To Heart stamp set around the sentiment in Poppy Parade Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Rich Razzleberry mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Old Olive card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the tiny heat image from the Heart To Heart stamp set colored with my Old Olive and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Write Markers, on the bottom of the envelope front.  I stamped the small heart from the Heart To Heart stamp set twice in Poppy Parade Ink on either side of the tiny heart image.  I adhered a panel of the Peaceful Poppies 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! Meant To Be Poppies

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Did you all watch the Super Bowl last night?  I watched bits and pieces and the half time show.  I have to admit, I really only watch for the commercials.

I have a pretty easy card for you today.  I’m having a Stamp Camp class tomorrow night and I have a couple new people joining me.  I’m not sure what kind of stampers they are, so I thought I’d keep it pretty simple.  Here’s one of the cards we’re going to make.

I played along with TGIF Challenge #249.  Here is their theme.

I started with a small panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the 2 different poppy images from the Stampin’ Up! Painted Poppies Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I stamped the leaf image from the Painted Poppies stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink by the flower images.  I colored the flowers and leaves in using my Mint Macaron and Rococo Rose Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Meant To Be Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the bottom right of a Whisper White card front.  I stamped the splatter image from the Painted Poppies stamp set in Rococo Rose Ink over the stamped sentiment.  I embossed the Whisper White card front using the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder.

I adhered the artwork to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I wrapped a piece of Mint Macaron 1/8″ Sheer Linen Ribbon around the card front and tied a bow.  I adhered the card front to a Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Meant To Be stamp set in the center of a Whisper White panel in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I stamped the poppy and leaf images from the Painted Poppies stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the top and bottom corners of the Whisper White panel.  I colored the images in using my Mint Macaron and Rococo Rose Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Rococo Rose mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card, I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the poppy image from the Painted Poppies stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the bottom front of the envelope.  I colored the images in using the color fill image stamp from the Painted Poppies stamp set.  I adhered a panel of Pressed Petals Specialty 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!!
