Stampin’ Up! Well Written Wedding Card

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers.  How has everyone’s week been going?  The weekend is right around the corner again and that means only 2 day’s till World Card Making Day.  Our team will be doing Facebook Live videos all day on Saturday starting at 9am and going until 9pm.  I hope you can join us, the link is listed below.  I will be doing my live video at 4pm, this will be my 1st Facebook Live.

For today’s card a friend asked me to make her a wedding card for this weekend.  I’ve seen cards made with the Puzzle Pieces Dies and I thought I’d put my own spin on it.  Here’s my card.

I played along with the Fab Friday Sketch Challenge #173.  Here is their sketch.

I started by embossing a Whisper White panel using the Scripty 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to a Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I cut out 2 of the puzzle pieces using the Puzzle Pieces Die from a scrap of Thick Whisper White cardstock.  I wanted to make sure the puzzle pieces were a little sturdier, that’s why I used the thick cardstock.  I colored one of the pieces in using my Dark Basic Black Stampin’ Blends Marker.  I colored 3 Rhinestone Basic Jewels using my Dark Basic Black Stampin’ Blends Marker and added them to the puzzle piece, so it looked like buttons.  The other puzzle piece I left white and added Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the top to look like a necklace.

I cut the heart out of Sparkle Glimmer Paper using the Stitched Be Mine Dies.  I cut the ‘bride and groom’ sentiments out of Silver Foil Sheets using the Well Written Dies.  I adhered the puzzle pieces to the center of the heart using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the bride on the top of the heart and groom on the bottom of the heart using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered a piece of Silver 3/8″ Metallic-Edge Ribbon to the back of the heart using a Glue Dot.  I adhered the heart to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Dandelion Wishes Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the heart image from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Lovely Photopolymer Stamp Set in Petal Pink Ink on either side of the sentiment.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Basic Black mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the heart image from the Forever Lovely stamp set on the envelope front and envelope flap in Petal Pink 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 Well Written for CAS On Friday Challenge

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Were all  mothers treated like queens?

For today’s card I’ve made a wedding card. I joined in with a challenge that was a real challenge for me.  I think this was one of the hardest ones for me to do, but I was determined to come up with a design that would work.  Here’s my card.

The challenge was from CAS On Friday challenge #157.  Their challenge was White on White.  I don’t usually do cards like this, but I was pretty happy with the results.  I started with a panel of Shimmery White cardstock and ran it through my Big Shot using the Pinewood Planks Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  From another piece of Shimmer White cardstock I cut out the butterflies, floral design and words using the Well Written Framelits Dies.

I started by adhering the words to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the 2 butterflies on the top right and the floral cut out on the bottom all using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I added some Pearl Basic Jewels to the butterflies and the flowers.

I adhered the card front to a Shimmery White card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the large floral image from the Stampin’ Up Wonderful Romance Stamp Set, (which will be retiring as of June 3rd), in Soft Sea Foam Ink stamping off twice to get a real light image.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Well Said Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink over the floral image in the center of the Shimmery White panel.  I adhered the Shimmer White panel to the inside of the Shimmery White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the floral image from the Wonderful Romance stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink on the envelope front.  I adhered a piece of Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper to the envelope flap.

The Well Said Bundle has so many great sayings and dies.  If you are considering getting this set, purchase it before June 3rd to receive the 10% discount.  It will be carried over to the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog, but will have to be purchased individually and you will not receive the discount.  The Wonderful Romance stamp set used and the Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper used will be retired as of June 3rd, so if these are something you have been wanting, get them while you still can.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. 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 Well Written Wedding Card for Watercooler Wednesday

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was your weekend?  Were you able to get any crafting done?  I was Saturday after work and most of Sunday.  I may even get some in today on this nice snowy day.  This weather really needs to get its times straight.  It’s almost spring.  We shouldn’t be having this much snow now.

For today’s card I made a really quick and easy, Clean and Simple card for you.  Take a look.

I played along with the Watercooler Wednesday challenge.  This was a really open challenge this week and I loved it. Be sure to stop by to play along and see what everyone has made. Here is their challenge..

I started with a panel of Whisper White cardstock and ran it through my Big Shot using the Country Floral Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  Again using my Big Shot I cut the ‘bride & groom’ out using the Well Written Framelits Dies and Champagne Foil Sheets.

I adhered the sentiment to a piece of Vellum paper using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the Vellum to the card front using Glue Dots.

I wrapped a piece of Silver Metallic Edged Ribbon around the card front and tied a bow.  I adhered the card front to a Thick Whisper White card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Clear Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Well Said Stamp Set in Smoky Slate ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the flowers from the Stampin’ Up Forever Lovely Stamp  Set in Powder Pink Ink in the 2 corners.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the flowers from the Forever Lovely stamp set in Powder Pink Ink on the bottom front of the envelope and the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my quick and easy card and will give it a try.  The Country Floral DTIEF is a FREE item with a $50.00 order during Sale-A-Bration.  This is truely a beautiful embossing folder.  I’m really hoping it carries over to the Annual Catalog.  Happy Stamping!!
