Stampin’ Up! Eden’s Garden for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends. Welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Does anyone have plans for the weekend? I’ll be working all day tomorrow at the dog bakery and all day Sunday at the hardware store.

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 new Stampin’ Up! Eden’s Garden Cling Stamp Set for my fun fold today. This suite will be available to customers on November 2nd. The DSP will be while supplies last.

I started by scoring and folding 2 card bases. I scored a Soft Succulent 8 1/2″ x 4 1/4″ card base at 5 1/2″. I scored an Evening Evergreen 8″ X 3″ card base at 4″. I adhered panels of Ever Eden Specialty Designer Series Paper to Evening Evergreen mats. I adhered the larger layered panel to the inside of the Soft Succulent card base.

I adhered the smaller layered panel to the Soft Succulent card base front.

I embossed a panel of the Ever Eden Cotton Paper using the Meadow Moments Embossing Folder. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Eden’s Garden stamp set in Versamark Ink on the embossed panel. I immediately sprinkled it with Gold Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I adhered the embossed panel to a Soft Succulent mat and then to the front of the Evening Evergreen card base. I added a few Brushed Metallic Dots to the embossed panel.

On the inside I stamped the large floral image from the Eden’s Garden stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink, stamping off once, on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the sentiment from the Eden’s Garden stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink over the floral image. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Soft Succulent mat then to the inside of the Evening Evergreen card base. I adhered the Evening Evergreen card base to the center of the inside of the Soft Succulent card base, facing the opposite direction.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the sprig image from the Eden’s Garden stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of Ever Eden 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. If you do CASE this card, please feel free to post it in the comments of my Facebook page under the 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.

We have another new hopper with us starting this week Please help me welcome Terry Lynn Bright to our Thursday Blog Hop, YAY!! If you are hopping over from Karen Finkle’s blog, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we have a Theme Challenge. I can’t wait to see what everyone has created this week. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects. Here is my card using this weeks Theme.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Gorgeous Leaves Bundle, the Stampin’ Up! Love of Leaves Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Beauty of The Earth Designer Series Paper for my card today.

Here is our theme for this week.

I started by adhering a panel of Beauty of The Earth DSP to a Misty Moonlight card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered a small panel of Beauty of The Earth DSP to a Misty Moonlight mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the small matted panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped 3 of the leaf images from the Stampin’ Up! Gorgeous Leaves Cling Stamp Set, 1 in Bumblebee, 1 in Pumpkin Pie and 1 in Real Red Ink. I cut the leave out using my Intricate Leaves Dies. I cut the coordinating detailed leaves from panels of Bumblebee, Pumpkin Pie and Real Red cardstock using my Intricate Leaves Dies. I adhered the stamped leaves. to the top of the detailed leaves using Glue Dots. I adhered the leaves to the top of the small layered panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals. I tied a multi loop bow using the Misty Moonlight and Silver Bakers Twine from the Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack and adhered it to the top of the leaves using a Glue Dot.

On a small panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Love of Leaves stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink on the panel. I cut the sentiment out using my Stitched So Sweetly Dies and adhered it to the bottom of 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 Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Tomorrow Cling Stamp Set on a Basic White panel. I stamped the leaf images from the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set around the sentiment in Bumblebee, Pumpkin Pie and Real Red Inks. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Misty Moonlight mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Misty Moonlight card base using Multipurpose Liquid glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the leaf images from the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set on the envelope front in Bumblebee, Pumpkin Pie and Real Red Inks. I adhered a panel of Beauty of The Earth DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Pretty Pumpkins

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone doing today? We’re halfway through the week and the weekend is right around the corner.

It’s time for another inspiration challenge for The Card Concepts. The inspiration photo is Harvest Adventures.  This was one of the first layered designs I made when I first started making cards 16+ years ago and I still love it. Here is my card that was inspired from the challenge photo.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Pretty Pumpkins Cling Stamp Set along with the Harvest Meadow Designer Series Paper for my Clean and Layered card. I was inspired by the colors, pumpkins and the baskets for my card.

I hope you will take a moment to visit The Card Concepts and join us for our challenge #160.  How are you inspired by this photo?

I started by embossing an Old Olive card front using the Checks & Dots Embossing Folder. I adhered the panel to the front of an Old Olive card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered a panel of Harvest Meadow DSP to a Cajun Craze mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to a Sahara Sand mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the trio pumpkin image from the Pretty Pumpkins stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I stamped the sentiment from the Pretty Pumpkins stamp set above the image in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image in using my Cajun Craze, Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive and Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends Markers. I embossed the panel using my Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the artwork to a Cajun Craze mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and then to a Sahara Sand mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Pumpkin Pie Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Pretty Pumpkins stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the pumpkin vine image from the Pretty Pumpkins stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom of the panel and colored it in using my Daffodil Delight and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Cajun Craze mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to a Sahara Sand mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to the inside of the Old Olive card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the trio of pumpkins image from the Pretty Pumpkins stamp set on the envelope front in Tuxedo Black Ink and colored them in the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of Harvest Meadow 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! Updates and A Day Off

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends. How has everyone’s week started off? I had really good intentions yesterday. I went to work in the morning. I got out a little earlier than normal since Friday was the 1st of the month. My intentions were to come home and make some cards and craft for a bit. The plans changed when my daughter had to be put in a hard cast for her broken and sprained ankle. The past 2 weeks she was in a soft cast and able to get around a little easier. Yesterday they put her in a hard cast up to her knee. She normally takes the train back and forth from school, but since it was raining she asked if I could give her a ride. Her class was only an hour so I sat in the parking lot and read till she was done. I still have lots of time to make a card and get a blog together so I wasn’t concerned. Well, everything changed when our 45 minute ride home turned into over 3 hours. I figured the ride might be a little longer since it had down poured for the entire hour my daughter was in class, but I never expected 3 hours. We got on the highway no problem taking the “quickest” route home and came to a dead stop, I mean 0 miles an hour stopped. That lasted for at least 2 hours before we started moving slowly. Needless to say, I was too tired when I got home to do anything. I’ll be back tomorrow with a card for you.

Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Harvest CAS

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend? It was a gorgeous fall weekend here, unfortunately I spent most of it inside working.

I used another one of my favorite sets from the July-December 2021 Mini Catalog for my card today. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Harvest Bundle along with the Blackberry Beauty Specialty Designer Series Paper for my card today.

My colors are from TGIF Challenge #336.

My design today is from Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #505.

I started by adhering a panel of Blackberry Beauty DSP to a Thick Very Vanilla card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Using my Layering Circles Dies, I cut 2 circles the same size, 1 in Basic Black cardstock and 1 in Blackberry Bliss cardstock. I embossed the Basic Black circle using my Stitched Greenery Die and I embossed the Blackberry Bliss circle using my Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered them to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the small floral image from the Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Harvest Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink and cut the image out using my Harvest Dies. I adhered the floral image to the Blackberry Bliss circle using Stampin’ Dimensionals. On a strip of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Nature’s Harvest stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink and cut it out using my Harvest Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the card front over the circles using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Elegant Faceted Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Through It Together Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Very Vanilla panel. I stamped the small floral image from the Nature’s Harvest stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom of the panel twice. I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Blackberry Bliss mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Thick Very Vanilla card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To finish my card I decorated a Very Vanilla Medium Envelope. I stamped the small floral image from the Nature’s Harvest stamp set on the envelope front twice in Tuxedo Black Ink. I adhered a panel of Blackberry Beauty 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! Delivering Cheer Fun Fold with Video Tutorial

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone’s weekend going? I hope you were able to join us yesterday for our Inkin’ Krew World Card Making Day Facebook Event. There were 9 of us that did live videos making some beautiful cards, there were giveaways when you left comments on some of the posts and a lot of inspiration going on.

Today’s card I made on my Facebook Live video yesterday. 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! Delivering Cheer Cling Stamp Set and the Stampin’ Up! Holly Jolly Wishes Cling Stamp Set along with the Peaceful Place Specialty Designer Series Paper for my non-traditional Christmas card today.

I started by using the Delightful Tag Topper Punch on the Smoky Slate card base and cut the right and left side of the panel on the top by sliding the paper into the punch and lining up the edge of the cardstock with the punch. I trimmed the excess pieces using my Paper Trimmer and scored the punched tag on the right side. With the scored tag to the right, I scored the card base at 4 1/4″.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the bottom and top sections of the lady from the Delivering Cheer stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I stamped the sentiment from the Holly Jolly Wishes stamp set on the top of the panel in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image in using my Ivory, Pale Papaya, Smoky Slate and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Pale Papaya mat using Stampin’ seal and then to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiments from the Holly Jolly Wishes stamp set and the Stampin’ Up! Perfectly Plaid Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink to the left side of the panel. I stamped just the top part of the presents from the Delivering Cheer stamp set on the bottom right of the panel in Tuxedo Black Ink and colored them in the same as I did for the card front. I adhered the Basic White pane to a Pale Papaya mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Smoky Slate card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I threaded a piece of the Pale Papaya 3/8″ Open Weave Ribbon through the 2 punched tags and tied a bow. I added a few Pale Papaya Genial Gems to the card front.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the top of the presents from the Delivering Cheer stamp set on the envelope front in Tuxedo Black Ink and colored them in the same as for the card. I adhered a panel of Peaceful Place 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 the 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.

Stampin’ Up! Celebrate With Friends Gorgeous Leaves

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends. Welcome to the weekend. Happy World Card Making Day. Today’s the perfect day to make some cards and MAIL the cards. We don’t hoard cards, we mail them!!! I hope you can join our Facebook event today. There will be live videos starting at 9am until 5pm along with some giveaways. I’ll be going live at 4pm.

Here is the link to join our World Card Making Day Event. I hope you will join us.

This is the schedule of the Facebook Live Videos for our World Card Making Day Event.

I have a Clean and Simple card for you today. My upline Jaimie sent me a similar one last week and I just loved it so much I had to make it. I’m also using this design for my in person class this coming Tuesday. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Gorgeous Leaves Bundle along with the Stampin’ Up! Create With Friends Photopolymer Stamp Set for my card today. I just love Cherry Cobbler and Crumb Cake together, they give me such a warm feeling for the fall.

I started by stamping the woodgrain image from the Stampin’ Up! Gorgeous Leaves Cling Stamp Set in Crumb Cake Ink on a Crumb Cake card front.

I stamped the sentiment from the Create With Friends stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink below the woodgrain image. I adhered the card front to a Cherry Cobbler mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to a Crumb Cake card base using Stampin Dimensionals.

Using my Intricate Leaves Dies, I cut the maple leaf die from a panel of Cherry Cobbler cardstock and the branch die from a panel of Early Espresso cardstock. I adhered the branch to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I tied a piece of the Early Espresso 1/4′ Faux Suede Trim around the leaf die and adhered it to the card front using Glue Dots. I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Create With Friends stamp set in Cherry Cobbler and Crumb Cake Ink on a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock. I stamped the maple leaf image from the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink on either side of the panel. I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Crumb Cake card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Very Vanilla Medium Envelope. I stamped the maple leaf image from the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink on the envelope front. I stamped the woodgrain image from the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink across the envelope flap.

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

Stampin’ Up! Joyful Life for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends. Welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Does anyone have plans for the weekend? I’ll be working half day tomorrow and all day Sunday too. Tomorrow is our World Card Making Day Facebook event. Please join us if you can. There will be live videos starting at 9am and the last one is at 5pm.

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! Joyful Life Cling Stamp Set along with the 2020-2022 In-Color 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by adhering a panel of Bumblebee 2020-2022 In-Color DSP to the front of a Merry Merlot card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. Using my 3rd largest Layering Circle Dies, I cut the card base and card front together.

On a strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Joyful Life stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I adhered the sentiment strip to a Bumblebee mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the pig and leaf images from Joyful Life stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I cut the image out using the 4th largest Layered Circles Dies. I colored the image using my Crumb Cake and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers and my Bumblebee and Merry Merlot Stampin’ Write Markers. I adhered the artwork to a Bumblebee scalloped circle using Stampin’ Seal and then to the Merry Merlot circle that I cut from the card base, using Stampin ‘ Seal.

For the inside I scored a panel of Basic White cardstock at 2″, 4″ & 6″. The 2″ & 4″ score lines are folded at a mountain fold and the 6″ score line is a valley fold.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Brew Some Fun Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the back section of the folded panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to the inside of the Merry Merlot card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the front section of the Basic White panel to the front of the Merry Merlot card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue on the top, left side and the bottom of the 2″ front section. I adhered the layered artwork through the front opening of the card using Multipurpose Liquid Glue only on the back of the right side.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the pig and leaf images from the Joyful Life stamp set on the envelope front and colored it in the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of the Bumblebee 2020-2022 In-Color DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Delivering Christmas Cheer for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends! Welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. I hope everyone is doing well today. We have a new hopper with us starting this week, Tara Carpenter has joined us, YAY!! If you are hopping over from Akiko Sudano’s blog, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we have a Sketch Challenge. I can’t wait to see what everyone has created this week. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects. Here is my card using this weeks Sketch.

I used my favorite set for today’s blog hop, the Stampin’ Up! Delivering Cheer Photopolymer Set along with the Whimsy & Wonder Specialty Designer Series Paper.

Here is our sketch for this week.

I started by adhering a panel of Whimsy & Wonder DSP to a Polished Pink mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to a Mint Macaron card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the top and bottom images from the Delivering Cheer stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I stamped the legwarmer image in Polished Pink Ink. I colored the image in using my Crumb Cake, Mint Macaron, Mossy Meadow & Polished Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image out using the 3rd largest Stitched Rectangle Dies. I adhered the artwork to a Polished Pink mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Delivering Cheer stamp set in Polished Pink Ink. I cut the strip into a banner using my Banners Pick A Punch. I cut a strip of Polished Pink cardstock using the Banners Pick A Punch and adhered the sentiment to the mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and Glue Dots. I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Delivering Cheer stamp set in Polished Pink Ink on a Basic White panel. I adhered 2 strips of the Whimsy & Wonder DSP to either side of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Polished Pink mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Mint Macaron card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of the Whimsy & Wonder DSP to the envelope front and a panel to the envelope flap.
