Stampin’ Up Tropical Chic Triple Time Technique

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers.  How is everyone doing today?  Is anyone starting to make plans for the weekend?

For today’s card I’ve done a Triple Time Technique card for you.  Take a look.

I joined in with the CAS Colours & Sketches challenge #320.  Here are their colors.

I started by cutting all the panels needed for the triple time technique (measurements below).  I layered the Whisper White panels on top of one another making sure they were all centered with each other.

I then began stamping all the leaves from the Stampin’ Up Tropical Chic Stamp Set in Garden Green Ink.  Some I stamped full strength, some I stamped off once and some I stamped off twice.  I was able to get 3 different shades of green by doing this.  I stamped a few of the hibiscus flowers from the same stamp set in Melon Mambo Ink some on the panels and a few on a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock.  The ones on the scrap I cut out using my Tropical Thinlits Dies.  I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set in Melon Mambo Ink in the center of the smallest panel.

Once I was done stamping I began to adhered the Whisper White panels to the Mango Melody mats using Snail.  I then adhered the matted layers on top of one another lining up the stamped images using Snail.  I adhered the cut out hibiscus flowers using Stampin’ Dimensionals on the card front.  I added a few of the Melon Mambo Glitter Enamel Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the leaves from the Tropical Chic stamp set all around a Whisper White panel using Garden Green Ink the same as I did on the card front.  I stamped a few of the flowers from the same stamp set and the sentiment in Melon Mambo Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Mango Melody card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the leaves and flowers from the Tropical Chic stamp set the same as I did for the card on the envelope front.  I adhered a piece of the Tropical Escapes 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to the envelope front.

Thank you for visiting my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try.  This stamp set and dies will be in the upcoming 2019-2020 Annual Catalog, but if you want the bundle price with the 10% discount you must order it before June 3rd.  After that you will have to purchase them individually.  Happy Stamping!!

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).

Stampin’ Up One For All Quick and Easy card

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  We’re half way through the week already.  Hope you are all having a good week.

For today’s card I have a quick and easy card for you.  I needed a card for a young girl and I think this fits.  Here’s my card.

I started with a Lemon Lime Twist card base and stamped the front using the Stampin’ Up Sheet Music Stamp in Lemon Lime Twist Ink.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the large sentiment from the Stampin’ Up One For All Stamp Set in Lemon Lime Twist Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Berry Burst mat using Snail.

I adhered the matted artwork to the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the silhouette image from the One For All stamp set in Berry Burst Ink on a Whisper White panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Berry Burst mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Lemon Lime Twist card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope using some of the Animal Expedition Designer Series Paper.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my quick and easy card and will give it a try.  If you liked the stamp sets I used for my card today and don’t have them, they will be retiring as of June 3rd.  So now’s the best time to grab them.      Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up Tea Together

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  How has your week started off?

I have 1 last Mother’s Day card for you today.   Here’s my card.

I played along with the Stampin’ Up Only Challenge #222. Their theme was “Celebration”. I thought Mother’s Day fit in perfectly.

I also played along with Always Fun Challenge #109.  Their theme was “Female or Mom”.

I started with a Soft Sea Foam card front and ran it through my Big Shot using the Country Floral Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (available June 4th).   I adhered the embossed card front to a Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the Teapot and Tea Cup images from the Stampin’ Up Tea Together Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I stamped the large rose image on the teapot and the rosebud image on the teacup from the same stamp set.  I colored the images in using my Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green and Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the images out using my Tea Time Framelits Dies (available June 4th).  I cut an oval out from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies from Whisper White cardstock and stamped the sentiment from the Tea Together stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the top of the oval.  I cut out a scalloped oval from the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies in Daffodil Delight cardstock as mat to my stitched oval.

I adhered the stitched oval to the scalloped oval using Snail and adhered it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the Teapot and the Tea Cup to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Pearl Basic Jewels which I colored with my Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blend Marker to the stitched oval.

On the inside I did something a little different.  I made a frame using my Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies in Daffodil Delight cardstock.  On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the tea-cup image from the Tea Together stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink stamping off once.  I stamped the rosebuds from the same stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink also stamping off once.  I colored the image in using my light Daffodil Delight and Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of the tea-cup.  I adhered the Whisper White panel under the stitched frame using Snail and adhered the framed image 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 tea-cup image from the Tea Together stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped the rosebuds from the same stamp set on the tea-cup and I stamped the large rose image on the envelope flap.  I colored everything in the same as I did for the card.

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

Stampin’ Up All That You Are Strong and Beautiful

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Mine was very wet and soggy.  It rained all weekend.  Did anyone do anything fun?

For today I have another Mother’s Day card for you.  I really need to get all my cards in the mail, today!!  Here’s my card.

I’ve joined in with 3 challenges today.  First is the Fab Friday color challenge #162.  Here are their gorgeous colors I got to work with.

Next I joined in with Aud Sentiments Challenge #226.  Their challenge theme was to Make a Feminine Project and An Appropriate Sentiment.

I also joined in with Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.  Here’s their theme.

I started with a panel of Tropical Escape 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper (retiring June 3rd) and adhered it to a Blushing Bride card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I stamped the large image from the Stampin’ Up All That You Are Stamp Set on a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock in Soft Suede Ink.  This stamp set will be retiring on June 3rd.  I love this image, it’s perfect to color.  I colored the image in using my Petal Pink, Pool Party and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Strong and Beautiful Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink on a strip of the Tropical Escapes 6 X 6 DSP.

I adhered the artwork, with Snail, to a panel of Pool Party mat which I ran through my Big Shot with the Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies.  I adhered the matted artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered a bow made from the Coastal Cabana/Granny Apple Green 3/8″ Reversible Ribbon (also retiring June 3rd) to the stem of the stamped image with a Glue Dot.  I adhered the stamped strip of DSP to the top of the artwork using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the flower image from the All That You Are stamp set in Soft Suede Ink in the corners of a Very Vanilla Panel.  Masking the flowers I stamped the stem image from the same stamp set in Pool Party Ink around the flowers.  I colored the flowers in using my Petal Pink and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the sentiment from the Strong and Beautiful stamp set in Soft Suede Ink in the center of the Very Vanilla panel.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to the inside of the Blushing Bride card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I stamped the flowers from the All That You Are stamp set on the envelope front and colored them in the same as I did for the card.  I adhered a piece of Tropical Escapes 6 X 6 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!!

Don’t forget if you liked the stamp set, DSP or ribbon that I used for my card, they will all be retiring as of June 3rd.  Grab them while you can.

Stampin’ Up Life Is Grand

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers.  Well we made it through another week.  Is anyone doing anything fun this weekend?

For today’s card I’m using the soon to retire Stampin’ Up Life Is Grand Stamp Set and Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper.  I’m also giving you a sneak peek of one of the new dies in the up coming 2019-2020 Annual Catalog. I’ve got a really quick and easy card for you here.  Here’s my card.

I started with a panel of the Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper as a card front and wrapped a piece of the Rich Razzleberry 1/4″ Velvet Ribbon (retiring June 3rd) around it.  I adhered the card front to a Mint Macaron card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from Life Is Grand stamp set in Rich Razzleberry Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using my Big Shot and the NEW Stitched Nested Labels Dies (available June 4th).  I adhered the label to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a few Share What You Love Artisan Pearls (retiring June 3rd) to it along with a piece of the 1/4″ Velvet Ribbon tied into a knot.

On the inside I stamped a sentiment from the Life Is Grand stamp set in Rich Razzleberry Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I added a strip of the Share What You Love Specialty DSP to the bottom of the panel using Snail.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Mint Macaron card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I adhered a piece of the Share What You Love Specialty DSP to the envelope front and envelope flap.

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

Stampin’ Up Tea Together Easel Stand Up Card

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers.  How has your week been?  The weekend is right around the bend, are you making any plans?

For today I have a fun fold card for you.  I got the idea from Rachael Rife @ rachthestamper,  but it looks as if the original idea came from Pootles Papercraft aka Sam Hammond.  This was the last of 4 cards we made at my Stamp Camp Tuesday night.  It looks a lot harder than it is.  I had a brand new stamper there and she made it no problem.  Here’s my card.

I started with an 8″ X 8″ panel of Petal Pink cardstock for my card base.  I scored it at 4″ then turned it and scored at 4″ again.  I then cut from the center down one side only.  On the top portion that was not cut I scored from the outside edge to the center top edge for the angle fold.  Using my Bone Folder I gave it a good crease on all the score lines.  The 2 straight ones I folded in and the 2 angle ones I folded out.

I cut 2 pieces of Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper into 3 3/4″ squares.  One of the pieces of DSP I cut in half to make 2 triangles for the outside folds.  I adhered the marbled piece of DSP to the bottom part where the easel was going to sit using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the 2 triangle pieces of DSP to the outside folded pieces using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I took a 3″ X 6″ piece of Petal Pink cardstock and folded it in half.  Using the 3rd largest scalloped circle from the Layering Circle Framelits Dies, I cut it out not putting the full circle on my paper, letting it hang over the folded edge about 1/4″ so that it would open up like a card.  I folded the top of the scallop circle up and in half meeting the little scallops to make the easel.  I cut another of the same size scallop circle from a piece of the Petal Promenade DSP and adhered it to the top section of the scallop circle.  Using the 2nd smallest scallop circle from the Layering Circle Framelits Dies I cut a piece of Mossy Meadow cardstock to make the easel stopper.  On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the teacup image, the sentiment in the teacup and the large rose image from the Stampin’ Up Tea Together Stamp Set in Smoky Slate Ink.  I colored them in using the Petal Pink and Light Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the images using the Tea Time Framelits Dies and my Big Shot.  I adhered the teacup to the scalloped circle using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the rose to the small Mossy Meadow scalloped circle using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the Mossy Meadow scalloped circle to the Petal Pink scalloped circle using Stampin’ Dimensionals placing it where I wanted the easel to stand open.  I adhered the easel piece to the center of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the teacup image from the Tea Together stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink stamping off once.  I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set in the center of the teacup in Smoky Slate Ink.  I colored the teacup in using my Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the card base, under the easel panel, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the teacup and the rosebud from the Tea Together stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink on the envelope front and colored it in using my Petal Pink and Light Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a piece of the Petal Promenade DSP to the envelope flap.

Here you can see that the card folds up nicely to fit into the Medium Envelopes, but it will need extra postage.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try.  If you have any questions on how to make this card, please feel free to email me and I will try to explain it better.  I didn’t realize until I started typing how difficult it is to explain step by step what I did.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up Sailing Home Sneak Peek

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers and Happy May Day everyone! .  We’re half way through the week and on our way to the weekend.  I can’t believe it’s May already. Before you know it, Memorial Day will be here.

For today’s card I have a little sneak peek for you from the up coming 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.  It’s the Stampin’ Up Sailing Home Bundle.  This was the first set that caught my eye and I just had to have it.  I’ve also made a fun fold card for you.  Here’s my card.

I joined in with the TGIF Inspiration Challenge #209 .  Here’s their challenge.

I started with a Soft Suede card base and scored it at 5 1/2″ and 2 3/4″.  I adhered a panel of the up coming Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper to the inside.  I just love news print paper on cards.

I took a small panel of the Soft Suede cardstock and ran it through my Big Shot using the Seaside Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  This folder will be retiring as of June 3rd, so now’s the time to grab it if it’s something you’ve been wanting.  I stamped the anchor, lighthouse, sailboat and sentiment images from the Sailing Home stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on a panel of Sahara Sand cardstock.  I then cut them out using the Smooth Sailing Dies.  I also cut a strip of Sahara Sand cardstock and sponged it with Soft Suede Ink using my Stamping Sponge.

I arranged the pieces the way I wanted to on the embossed panel.  I adhered them using Glue Dots and Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the card front to the front panel of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the small inside panel I adhered a piece of Sahara Sand cardstock using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up High Tide Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink.  I stamped the grass and birds from the same stamp set on the bottom of the panel in Sahara Sand Ink stamping off once.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I started by sponging all around the front and back of the envelope with Soft Suede Ink and my Stamping Sponge.  I stamped the lighthouse and sailboat from the Sailing Home stamp set in Soft Suede Ink.  I adhered a panel of the Come Sail Away DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope that you liked my card.  This stamp set, dies and DSP will all be available June 4th for purchase.  Happy Stamping!!
