Stampin’ Up! Quiet Meadow Wedding

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone doing today. We’re halfway through the week and on our way to the weekend already. These days are just flying by.

Today’s card I made for someone very special. One of the girls that I used to babysit for many years ago is getting married and her shower is this month. Unfortunately I can’t go, it’s in Tennessee and on the 31st of the month. I only have 2 mandatory days I have to be at work in the office, the last day and the 1st day. I did send a gift to her mother, my friend, for her along with wishing well gifts and this card. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Quiet Meadow Bundle for my card today along with the Bloom Where You’re Planted Designer Series Paper. This paper is one of the beautiful patterns on sale right now for 15% off. The colors I used for my card are actually the brides theme colors, olive and deep burgundy.

I started by adhering a panel of the Bloom Where You’re Planted DSP to an Old Olive card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the flower image from the Stampin’ Up! Quiet Meadow Cling Stamp Set. I colored the stamp using my Merry Merlot and Old Olive Stampin’ Write Markers. I stamped the flower twice full strength and then the center one is stamped off once. I cut the image out using my Stitched Rectangle Dies. I adhered the artwork to a Merry Merlot mat using Stampin’ Seal. I wrapped a piece of White Bakers Twine from the Bakers Twine Essential Pack around the layered panel twice and tied a knot. On a piece of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Quiet Meadow stamp set in Merry Merlot Ink and cut it out using my Meadow Dies. I threaded the sentiment onto the bakers twine and tied a bow. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut the half butterfly die from the Meadow Dies twice, once from a piece of White Vellum paper and once from a piece of Gold Glimmer Vellum paper (available in the July-August 2021 Mini Catalog on August 3rd). I adhered the 2 butterflies together at the body using Multipurpose Liquid Glue then adhered them to the card front using a Glue Dot. I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Many Happenings Cling Stamp in Merry Merlot Ink on a Basic White panel. I did this by placing my stamp on the Stamparatus and just inking the 1 sentiment using my Merry Merlot Stampin’ Write Marker and stamping it on the panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the flower image from the Quiet Meadow stamp set on the side of the panel, inking it up with my Merry Merlot and Old Olive Stampin’ Write Markers and stamping off once. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Merry Merlot mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Old Olive card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the flower image from the Quiet Meadow stamp set on the envelope front the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of Bloom Where You’re Planted 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 Shaded Summer for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Does anyone have any plans for the weekend yet? I’ll be working all weekend between both jobs. I had requested Sunday off, but I guess they didn’t see it when they made up the schedule.

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. 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 for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Shaded Summer Cling Stamp Set for my card along with the Summer Shadow Dies (available August 3rd as a Sale-a-bration item).

This is the template for making my card. I started by cutting a panel of Calypso Coral cardstock as in the diagram above.

I adhered 2 panels of the Petal Pink Subtle 6 X 6 Designer Series paper to the card front panels using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered 2 more panels of the Subtle DSP to the inside card front panels using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I made the belly band using a strip of Calypso Coral cardstock and wrapped it around the finished card. I adhered Tear & Tape to the ends of the belly band to adhere them together. I cut a panel of Petal Pink cardstock using the largest die from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. I stamped it with the floral image from the Shaded Summer stamp set in Petal Pink Ink. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Many Happenings Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink and cut it out using the Messages Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the top of the die cut panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals and then adhered it to the belly band using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I added a few Champagne Rhinestones to the belly band.

For the inside panel I stamped the 2 floral images from the Shaded Summer stamp set in Petal Pink Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Elegantly Said Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink over the floral image. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Calypso Coral mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to only the bottom portion of the easel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered a Basic White panel to a Petal Pink mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Calypso Coral card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue

Using the Summer Shadow Dies (Sale-a-bration item available August 3rd). I adhered a panel of Calypso Coral and Shaded Spruce cardstocks to an Adhesive Sheet. I cut the detailed flowers from a panel of Calypso Coral cardstock. I cut the solid flowers from a panel of Petal Pink cardstock. I cut the detailed leaves from a panel of Shaded Spruce cardstock and the solid leaves from a panel of Soft Succulent cardstock. I adhered the detailed flowers and leaves to the solid flowers and leaves using the Adhesive Sheet. I adhered the flowers to the bottom of the inner liner using Stampin’ Dimensionals and adhered the leaves using a Glue Dot. I added a Champagne Rhinestone to the center of the larger flower. I didn’t stamp a sentiment on the inside. I need to write a special message for the recipient of the card.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the floral images from the Shaded Summer stamp set in Petal Pink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of Petal Pink Subtle 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. If you do CASE this card, please feel free to post it in the comments of my Facebook page under this post. I’d love to see your take on the card. 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.

Stampin’ Up Forever Fern Wedding

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends. Welcome to the weekend. Hope you have something fun planned for the weekend. Today’s my son’s 26th birthday. I can’t believe he’s 26 already, not sure when he got older, but I haven’t. He gets to celebrate with a broken fibula and a ruptured ankle, not much of a celebration. I have to work today, but to my surprise I have off tomorrow, YAY!!! Unfortunately my husband has to work. My intentions now are to get one of my gardens redone. We’ll see how that goes.

Today’s card is something different than my normal. No color. Years ago when my children were little, I did child care. A friend of mine and I both needed to work part-time so we decided to swap kids a couple days a week. It was an even swap till she had a 3rd child and needed me twice a week. I ended up watching her girls along with a couple others 2-3 times a week. I loved the girls that I watched and loved watching them grow up with mine. I was sad when the last one went off to Kindergarten and I only had them in the summer. Well, her middle child is getting marries and I’m going to make a few different wedding cards till I decide which one I want to give her. So here’s my first card for her.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern Cling Stamp Set for my White on White card.

My design and color is from the Try Stamping On Tuesday Challenge #510.

I started by cutting a panel of Shimmery White cardstock using the Potted Succulents Dies and adhered it to a Thick Basic White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I embossed a panel of Basic White cardstock using the Dotty Hearts Embossing Folder and adhered it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On a small panel of Shimmery White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Forever Fern stamp set in Versamark Ink. I immediately sprinkled it with my Silver Embossing Folder and set it using my Heat Tool.

I adhered a piece of 1/2″ White Faux Lined Ribbon from the Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Pack to the back of the sentiment panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Forever Fern stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I cut 3 flowers from a panel of Shimmery White cardstock using the Potted Succulent Dies and adhered them on either side of the sentiment using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Shimmery White mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Thick Basic White card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of In Good Taste Designer Series Paper to the envelope front and a panel 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!!

Changes To The Upcoming July-December Mini Catalog And Second Sale-a-bration


Stampin’ Up! has shared the following update with us related to the upcoming July-December Mini Catalog and second Sale-a-bration this year.  With the global shipping delays, they will be moving the start dates for those two publications back by one month.  Here are the details from Stampin’ Up!:

We’ve recently been made aware that, due to the current global shipping crisis tied to the COVID pandemic, we are not likely to receive the majority of product inventory for the upcoming July–December 2021 Mini Catalog or July–August 2021 Sale-A-Bration in time for the catalog launches. After careful consideration we have decided to push the launches of both publications back by one month to allow time for inventory to be received.
 
Change Details

  • The July–December 2021 Mini Catalog will in effect become the August–December 2021 Mini Catalog (though the title of the publication will not change).
    • Demonstrator Preorder: July 1, 2021 – August 2, 2021
    • Customer Sales Period: August 3, 2021– January 3, 2022
  • July–August 2021 Sale-A-Bration will in effect become August–September 2021 Sale-A-Bration.
    • Demonstrator Pre-earn: July 1, 2021 – August 2, 2021
    • Customer Earning Period: August 3, 2021 – September 30, 2021

I’m so happy that Stampin’ Up! made the decision to move the catalog timing back by a month in order to minimize those frustrating backorders and unavailable items!  Let me know if you have questions about this.  Can’t wait to see the upcoming Mini and Sale-a-bration Catalogs this summer!  And as always, I’ll get those catalogs mailed out to you just as quickly as I can once I get them in early July!

The first Stampin’ Up! value statement is this: we care about people first. What does that look like? Caring about people first means treating others with kindness, respect, and equal consideration. It means working together towards a common goal, helping each other through life’s challenges, and celebrating one another’s accomplishments. It means including others, even when we disagree, have contrasting life experiences, or simply see things differently. Caring about people first is our greatest strength!

Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern Wedding for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday.  How was everyone’s week?  We’re upon the weekend and it’s supposed to be another beautiful one here. Love these cool mornings and warmer afternoons.

Today’s fun fold card is one that I made on Wednesday afternoon on my Facebook Live video.  If you were able to join me or you watched the replay, thank you very much.  If you’d like to view my video either on Facebook or YouTube, the link is below.  I needed another wedding card for my boss from my family, here’s what I came up with.   I’m calling it a folded gate fold with a belly band.

I started by scoring and folding my Thick Whisper White card base at 1 1/4″, 3 3/8″, 7 5/8″ & 9 3/4″.  I adhered 4 panels of Peony Garden Designer Series Paper to 4 Gray Granite mats using Stampin’ Seal.

I adhered 2 of the matted panels to the outside panels of the card base and 2 to the inside panels of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid glue.

I embossed 2 panels of Gray Granite cardstock using the Dainty Diamonds 3D Embossing Folder and adhered them to the narrow front panels of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

For the belly band, I adhered a panel of Petal Pink cardstock to a panel of Gray Granite cardstock using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I wrapped the belly band around the card and adhered it using Tear & Tape. I wrapped a piece of 1/4″ Gray Granite Shimmer Ribbon around the belly band securing it down with Glue Dots.  On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern Cling Stamp Set in Gray Granite Ink.  I stamped one of the leaf images from the Forever Fern stamp set in Soft Seafoam Ink, stamping off once,  on either side of the sentiment.  I cut the sentiment out using the frame die from the Wild Rose Dies.  I cut 2 of the largest fern dies from the Forever Flourishing Dies from a panel of Vellum cardstock and adhered them to the belly band using Glue Dots.  I adhered the die cut sentiment to the belly band using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Elegant Faceted Gems to the sentiment die.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Path of Petals Photopolymer Stamp Set in Gray Granite Ink in the center of a Whisper White Panel.  I stamped the leaf image from the Forever Fern stamp set in Soft Seafoam Ink on the bottom of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Gray Granite mat using Stampin’ Seal 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 leaf image from the Forever Fern stamp set in Soft Seafoam on the envelope front once full strength and once stamped off.  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.  The list of supplies are below along with the measurements if you’d like to stamp along while watching the video.  You can watch it on my Facebook page Here.

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

Stampin’ Up! Well Said Wedding

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends.  How is everyone doing today?  We’re halfway through the week already and on our way to the weekend.

TODAY ONLY!!!

Stock up on stamp sets at a stellar price! For one day only, you can purchase select cling and photopolymer stamp sets at a 15% discount. This short, stamp-tacular sale only happens once a year—you won’t want to miss out on these super savings!

My boss is getting married this weekend and I was volunteered to collect from all of our part timers for a gift for him and his future wife.  All I said is that I would put together a card for them, I’m always getting volunteered for something.  Here is the wedding card I made for them.  Now I need to come up with one more design for a card from my family and I.

I started by cutting the outline of the floral die from the Many Layered Blossoms Dies out of a pane of Whisper White cardstock which was adhered to an Adhesive Sheet.  I cut the 2nd die cut from the Many Layered Blossoms Dies from a panel of Shimmery White cardstock.  I cut a panel of Soft Seafoam cardstock into pieces and cut just the leaves out of the 2 dies from the Many Layered Blossoms Dies to fill in on the white pieces.  I cut the small flower outlines from the Many Layered Blossoms Dies out of a panel of Shimmery White cardstock and the small  2nd die cut of the small flowers from a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock, which was adhered to an Adhesive Foam Sheet.

I adhered the Shimmer White die to the front of a Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the Soft Seafoam leaves using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the Whisper White outline die to the top of the Shimmery White flower with the Adhesive Sheet.  I adhered the small outlined flowers to the Very Vanilla flowers and then to the card front with the Adhesive Foam Sheet attached.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Well Said Cling Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using the smallest die from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies and edged it using my Soft Seafoam Stampin’ Write Marker.  I adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I cut the ‘bride  groom’ out of a panel of Champagne Foil Sheet using the Well Written Dies and adhered them to the card front, over the flowers, using my Fine Tip Glue Pen.  I added a few of the clear Elegant Faceted Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Well Said stamp set in Soft Suede Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I didn’t decorate the inside like I normally do since so many people have to sign the card.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Champagne Foil mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped one of the leaf images from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern Cling Stamp Set in Soft Seafoam Ink, stamping off once, on the envelope front.  I stamped the splatter image from the Forever Fern stamp set in Soft Seafoam Ink around the leaf image.  I adhered a panel of Peony Garden 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!!

Stampin’ Up! Scripty Happy Birthday To You

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends.  How has everyone’s week started off?  Are you all still working from home and keeping Social Distancing?  I have to work today, but I’m all by myself in the office so I feel pretty safe.  Can you believe it’s the last day of March already?  I feel like I lost a whole month.

I made a Wedding/Anniversary/Birthday card for you today.  I left the sentiment wide open so I can use it for anything I need.  Here’s today’s card.

I played along with Paper Craft Crew Challenge #375.  They had a Horizontal Sketch Challenge this week.  Here is their sketch.

I also joined in with The Paper Players Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge #484.  Here is their board.  I covered 3 different directions starting at the top left corner.

I started by embossing a Soft Seafoam card front using the Scripty 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the card front to a Soft Seafoam card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I cut a panel of Parisian Blossoms Specialty Designer Series Paper using the Stitched So Sweetly Die and adhered it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Shimmery White cardstock I stamped the cake image from the Stampin’ Up! Happy Birthday To You Cling Stamp Set, which is a Sale-A-Bration item, in Smoky Slate Ink.  I colored the image in using my Petal Pink, Purple Posy, Light Smoky Slate and Soft Seafoam Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I fussy cut the image out using my Paper Snips.  I adhered the cake image to the die cut DSP using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Shimmery White cardstock I stamped the cake image from the Happy Birthday To You stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink making sure to get mainly the one flower.  I colored the flower in using my Petal Pink and Soft Seafoam Stampin’ Blends Markers and fussy cut it using my Paper Snips.  I adhered a piece of Petal Pink 1/4″ Metallic Edge Ribbon to the card front using Glue Dots.  I adhered the fussy cut flower over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Blossoms Cling Stamp Set in Smoky Slate Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the cake image from the Happy Birthday To You stamp set in Soft Seafoam Ink, stamping off once, over the sentiment.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Soft Seafoam mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Soft Seafoam card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the cake image from the Happy Birthday To You stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink on the envelope front.  I colored the image in using my Petal Pink, Purple Posy and Soft Seafoam Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of the Parisian Blossoms 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. Don’t forget, today’s the last day to order Coordination Products and to earn free Sale-A-Bration items.  If there is something you wanted, you need to get your order in now.   Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Parisian Blossom Wedding for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday.  How was everyone’s week?  The weekend is upon us, is anyone making plans?  I only have to work one day this weekend, YAY!!  I’m finally going to get to go to one of my nephews basketball games.  I’m not a basketball fan, but I do love watching the little ones play.

For today’s card I was inspired by a card one of my team members, Barbara Morrison Ross, posted on our team Facebook page yesterday.  Here’s my card.

My card played along with Sunday Stamps Challenge #223 From The Heart.  Here are their colors.

I started by embossing a Pool Party card front using the Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the Pool Party panel to a Cherry Cobbler card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I scored and folded a Petal Pink card base at 1 1/2″, 3″, 5 1/2″ and 8″ and adhered it to a Cherry Cobbler mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the smaller card base to the larger one using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the large cake image from the Stampin’ Up! Sale-A-Bration  Happy Birthday To You Cling Stamp Set in Versamark Ink.  I immediately sprinkled it with my Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I carefully colored the image using my Cherry Cobbler, Petal Pink and Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Markers making sure not to touch the embossed areas.  The Stampin’ Blends Markers will lift the embossed area if you color over them.  I fussy cut the image out using my Paper Snips. There are dies available for cutting the image out.  They are Coordination Products that you can find in my Online Store.

I adhered the 3 panels of Parisian Blossom Specialty Designer Series Paper to the card base using Snail.  I adhered the cake image to the front panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals  only putting them on 1/2 of the cake.  I added Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the flower centers on the cake.

On the middle  panel I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Blossom Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Forever Blossom stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a Whisper White Panel.  I stamped the small flower image from the Forever Blossom stamp set in Petal Pink Ink in the corners of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel the inside of the Petal Pink card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped a cluster of the small flower image from the Forever Blossom stamp set in Petal Pink Ink on the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of the Parisian Blossom 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! Path of Petals Heirloom for Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers.  I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and enjoyed your time with family and friends.  We celebrate on Christmas Eve, so our Christmas Day was a very quiet relaxing day.  Welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by. This week we had a Color Challenge.  Be sure to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects. Here’s my card using our colors.

Here is my card using these colors.

I started by adhering a panel of Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper to a Soft Suede card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I cut a panel of Rococo Rose cardstock using the Heirlooms Frame Dies and 3D Embossing Folder.  On a small panel of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Woven Heirlooms Cling Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using the largest die from the Layering Ovals Dies.  I stamped the stem image from the Stampin’ Up! Path of Petals Photopolymer Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink, stamping off once, over the sentiment on the oval.  I stamped the flower image from the Path of Petals stamp set in Rococo Rose Ink, stamping off once, on the stem.

I adhered the sentiment oval to the back of the Rococo Rose frame using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the frame to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Path of Petals stamp set in Soft Suede Ink in the center of a Very Vanilla panel.  I stamped the stem image from the Path of Petals stamp set in Soft Suede Ink, stamping off once, to the bottom of the Very Vanilla panel twice.  I stamped the flower image from the Path of Petals stamp set in Rococo Rose Ink, stamping off once, on the stem image.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Rococo Rose mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Soft Suede card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I stamped the stem image from the Path of Petals stamp set in Soft Suede Ink, stamping off once, on the front of the envelope.  I stamped the flower image from the Path of Petals stamp set in Rococo Rose Ink on the stem image on the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of the Pressed Petals Specialty 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! Forever Blossoms Wedding Sneak Peek

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  How has everyone’s week started off?  One week from today is Christmas Eve, yikes!!  Have you gotten you shopping done, baking done, cards mailed.  You all know I got my baking done.  My cards just went in the mail (here’s hoping they get to everyone on time).  Shopping??? Well, I haven’t really gotten any done.  I’ve sent my husband out to pick things up, guess that’s next on my list of things to do.  I’m really running out of time here.

For today I have another sneak peek for you using the Stampin’ Up! Forever Blossoms Bundle.  When I saw this set in the New 2020 Mini Catalog, I just knew I had to have it.  My son needs a wedding card for New Years Day, so I thought I’d play around with this bundle.  Here’s my card.

I started by embossing a Whisper White card front using the new Parisian Flourish 3D Embossing Folder.  I stamped the large floral image from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Blossoms Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink twice on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I colored the image in using my Purple Posy and Soft Seafoam Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the images out using the Cherry Blossoms Dies.

I adhered the cut images to the embossed Whisper White panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue letting them hang off on either side.  I cut the pieces that were hanging off the card front to make them even.  I adhered the card front to a Soft Seafoam mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I stamped the sentiment from the Forever Blossoms stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a thin strip of Whisper White cardstock.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered the matted card front to a Purple Posy card base using Stampin’ Dimensional.  I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the large floral image from the Forever Blossoms stamp set in Soft Seafoam Ink on a panel of Whisper White.  I stamped the sentiment from the Forever Blossoms stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink over the floral image in the center of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Soft Seafoam mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Purple Posy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I added a couple more Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the inside.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the large floral image from the Forever Blossoms stamp set in Soft Seafoam Ink on the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of Purple Posy 2019-2021 In-Color 6″ X 6″ Designer Series Paper to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card.  Stamp Set, Dies and Embossing Folder used for today’s card will be available in just 2 1/2 short weeks. Happy Stamping!!

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!!
