Stampin’ Up! Plentiful Plants Dear Friend

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends. Hope your weekend is starting off with some fun activities planned. I have off today and I’ll be at work tomorrow. I don’t have plans for today yet except to do a little trimming of some plants in my gardens. That will be done first thing this morning since we are expected to be in the mid 90’s today.

Today’s card uses one of the beautiful packs of DSP that is on sale right now. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Plentiful Plants Bundle form my card along with In Good Taste Designer Series Paper today.

My design is from Just Add Ink Challenge #563.

I started by embossing a Gray Granite card front using the Macramé 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered a panel of In Good Taste DSP to the top of the panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I wrapped a piece of Evening Evergreen 3/8″ Open Weave Ribbon around the panel and tied a knot.

Using the Stampin’ Up! Plentiful Plants Photopolymer Stamp Set, I stamped the flower pot in Pale Papaya Ink, the leafy plant in Soft Succulent Ink and the berry plant in Fresh Freesia Ink. I cut the images out using my Perfect Plants Dies. I cut the macramé plant holder from a panel of Evening Evergreen cardstock. I arranged the flowerpot and plants the way I wanted them in the plant holder and adhered them with Multipurpose Liquid Glue and Glue Dots. I threaded a piece of Gray Granite bakers twine from the Bakers Twine Essential Pack through the holder and adhered it to the back of the card front with Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the card front to a Gray Granite card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Plentiful Plants stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink. I adhered the sentiment to the bottom of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Evening Evergreen 2021-2023 In-Color Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Plentiful Plants stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the flowerpot image from the Plentiful Plants stamp set on the bottom in Pale Papaya Ink and the leafy plane in the flowerpot in Soft Succulent Ink. I adhered a strip of In Good Taste DSP to the bottom of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the Basic White panel to an Evening Evergreen mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Gray Granite card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the flowerpot image from the Plentiful Plants stamp set in Pale Papaya Ink on the bottom front of the envelope. I stamped the plant image in Soft Succulent in the pot. I adhered a panel of In Good Taste 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! Party Puffins 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 Sunday, but I have Saturday off. Not sure what I’ll be doing yet. I may attempt to dig out a tree I’ve been wanting to get rid of that’s half dead.

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! Party Puffins Cling Stamp Set along with the Pattern Party Host Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by cutting a Coastal Cabana card base. I scored it at 5 1/2″, then lined the right front edge at the 2 1/8″ mark on my trimmer and cut down from the 5 1/2″ score line. I turned the card base a 1/4 turn and cut along the 5 1/2″ scored line down from the 2 1/8″ cut line.

I adhered a panel of the Pattern Party DSP to a Flirty Flamingo mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I wrapped a piece of Pool Party 3/8″ Sheer Ribbon around the layered panel and tied a bow. I adhered the panel to the Coastal Cabana card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the puffin image from the Party Puffins stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image in using my Bermuda Bay, Flirty Flamingo, Pumpkin Pie & Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image out using the middle Hippo & Friends Dies. I cut the larger Hippo & Friends Die from a panel of Flirty Flamingo cardstock. I adhered the artwork to the Flirty Flamingo mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Party Puffins stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the puffin and birthday cake from the Party Puffins stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom of the panel. I colored the images in using my Flirty Flamingo, Pool Party, Pumpkin Pie & Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers. I colored the candles in using my Bermuda Bay Stampin’ Write Marker. On a scrap of Basic White cardstock I stamped the fish image from the Party Puffins stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the fish in using my Mango Melody Stampin’ Write Marker. I didn’t really like the color so I colored over it with my Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blends Marker. I colored the bow with my Bermuda Bay Stampin’ Blends Markers. I fussy cut the fish using my Paper Snips and adhered it to the puffin using a Glue Dot. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Flirty Flamingo mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Coastal Cabana card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped 2 of the puffin images from the Party Puffins stamp set on the envelope front and colored them the same as on the card. I adhered a panel of the Pattern Party 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! Love of Leaves 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. If you are hopping over from Akiko Sudano’s blog, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we have a Theme Challenge. 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! Love of Leaves Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Pattern Party Host Designer Series Paper for my card this week.

I went with leave for my Outdoors theme.

I started by coloring a panel of the Pattern Party DSP using my Stampin’ Blends Markers. I just used all different colors and it’s too many to list so you’ll have to use your imagination and pick your favorite colors to use 😉 I adhered the DSP card front to a Bumblebee card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue

I stamped the sentiment from the Love of Leaves stamp set in Old Olive Ink on a Basic White panel and cut it our using my Hippo & Friends Dies. I adhered some Linen Thread to the card front with a small amount of Stampin’ Seal then adhered the sentiment over the top using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut 4 of the leaves from the Stitched Leaves Dies in Blackberry Bliss, Bumblebee, Pumpkin Pie and Real Red cardstock. I arranged the leaves on the bottom of the sentiment and adhered them using Stampin’ Dimensionals and Glue Dots. I made a bow using the Linen Thread and adhered it to the leaf stems using a Glue Dot. I added a few 2019-2022 In-Color Square Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Moments Cling Stamp Set in Old Olive Ink on a Basic White panel. I adhered a strip of the Pattern Party DSP to the bottom of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the Basic White panel to an Old Olive mat using Stampin’ Seal then embossed the top using my Stitched Leaves Dies. I added a couple more leaves that I cut using my Stitched Leaves Dies from Cherry Cobbler and Misty Moonlight cardstock using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to the inside of my Bumblebee card base using Stampin’ Seal.

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

Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Harvest CAS Sneak Peek

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone doing today? We’re halfway through the week and on our way to the weekend. I hope you are starting to make some fun plans.

Today I have a Clean and Simple card with a sneak peek for you. Here’s my card for today.

I used the new Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Harvest Cling Stamp Set for my card today. This set will be available on Tuesday August 3rd.

My design is from the CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge #428.

My colors are from The Paper Players challenge #549.

I started by adhering a small panel of Basic White cardstock on a Basic White cardstock with the tiniest amount of Stampin’ Seal just to hold it in place. I stamped the large cone flower image from the Nature’s Harvest stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I carefully removed the small panel so that it wouldn’t stick to the card front. I colored the image in on the small panel and the card front using my Just Jade & Misty Moonlight Stampin’ Blends Markers. I colored the flower center in using my Bumblebee Stampin’ Write Marker.

I adhered the Basic White card front to a Bumblebee card base using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the small panel to a Bumblebee mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to the card front, matching up the images, using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Nature’s Harvest stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the top of the panel. I adhered a Bumblebee Trinket to the small panel with a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Thanks Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the cone flower image on the bottom of the panel in Tuxedo Black Ink and colored the image in using my Just Jade & Misty Moonlight Stampin’ Blends Markers and my Bumblebee Stampin’ Write Marker. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Bumblebee mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Bumblebee card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the cone flower image from the Nature’s Harvest stamp set on the envelope front in Tuxedo Black Ink and colored it in the same as on the card. I adhered a panel of the 2020-2022 In-Color 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Friends Are Like Seashells Sailing Home for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers. Welcome to Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop. It’s the 2nd Tuesday of the month so that means Blog Hop Day!! If you are starting with me, be sure to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects. If you’ve hopped over from Mary Deatherage’s blog, welcome to my blog and thank you for stopping by. The theme this month is “Celebrate Summer”.  We can interpret this however we want.  Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Friends Are Like Seashells Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Stampin’ Up! Sailing Home Cling Stamp Set. Nothing says summer to me like the beach.

My colors are from Sunday Stamps Challenge #261.

I started by embossing a Smoky Slate card front using the new Timber 3D Embossing Folder (available August 3rd). I adhered the embossed panel to a Night of Navy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the lighthouse image from the Sailing Home stamp set in Night of Navy Ink. I masked the lighthouse with a sticky note and added color to the backgrounds using my Blending Brushes. I added Coastal Cabana Ink on the top of the panel and Smoky Slate Ink on the bottom of the image. I stamped the bird image from the Sailing Home stamp set on the top of the panel in Night of Navy Ink. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Through It Together Cling Stamp Set next to the lighthouse image in Night of Navy Ink. I cut the image out using my Stitched Rectangle Dies. I adhered the artwork to a Night of Navy mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sand dollar image from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink and the seashells in Calypso Coral Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I cut the images out using the Seaside Shells Dies. I adhered the sand dollar and shells using Stampin’ Dimensionals and Glue Dots. I added a few Opal Rounds to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Sailing Home stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the sand dollar image from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the other seashells in Calypso Coral Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Smoky Slate mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Night of Navy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the sand dollar and seashell images from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Calypso Coral, Coastal Cabana and Smoky Slate Inks on the envelope front and envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Tidings and Trimmings Note Card and Box

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend? We had a beautiful, warm weekend here in NJ. I worked both days, but I get out by 5pm so there’s plenty of time left to enjoy part of it.

Today’s card was a surprise that we made at my Stamp Camp Class last Tuesday. I wasn’t sure what we were going to make then I remembered I had purchased these adorable boxes and thought a note card would go perfectly with it. Here’s my card and box.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Tidings & Trimmings Bundle for both items, keeping it very simple. The box is the Scalloped Kraft Treat Box and it’s really a great size for a little gift.

I assembled the Scalloped Craft Treat Box and adhered a piece of the Evening Evergreen 3/8″ Chevron Weave Ribbon using a small amount of Stampin’ Seal on the top of the box. I cut a solid Merry Merlot star using my Christmas Trimmings Dies. I cut a detailed star from a panel of Gold Foil paper which was adhered to a piece of an Adhesive Sheet, and adhered it to the solid star. I adhered the star to the box top over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the leaf image from the Stampin’ Up! Tidings & Trimmings Photopolymer Stamp Set in Evening Evergreen Ink. I stamped the berry image in Merry Merlot Ink on the panel of cardstock. I cut the images out using my Christmas Trimmings Dies. I cut another leaf die from a scrap of Evening Evergreen cardstock and the berry die from a scrap of Merry Merlot cardstock. I adhered the leaves and berries under the star using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On a strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Tidings & Trimmings stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink and adhered it to the star using Glue Dots.

For the Basic White Note Card I randomly stamped the outline leaf images from the Tidings & Trimmings stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink on the card front. I stamped the leaf fill images in Evening Evergreen Ink, stamping off once. I stamped the berry image from the Tidings & Trimmings stamp set in Merry Merlot Ink between the leaf images. I stamped the sentiment from the Tidings & Trimmings stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink in the center of the card front. I added a few Cherry Cobbler Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I randomly stamped the leaf and berry images from the Tidings & Trimmings stamp set in Evening Evergreen and Merry Merlot Inks on the top and bottom of the Basic White Note Card. I stamped the sentiment from the Tidings & Trimmings stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink in the center of the card base.

To complete my Basic White Note Card a decorated a matching Basic White Note Card Envelope. I randomly stamped the leaves and berry images from the Tidings & Trimmings stamp set in Evening Evergreen and Merry Merlot Ink the same as I did for the card.

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

Stampin’ Up! Delivering Cheer Celebrate Together CAS

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone’s weekend going? Our weather man got it wrong again. Yesterday turned out to be a beautiful day here.

Today’s card is a step up from yesterday’s. I’m really loving this new set. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Delivering Cheer Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper for my card.

I started by adhering a panel of the Hand-Penned DSP 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 colored the image in using my Cinnamon Cider, Ivory, Mint Macaron and Pale Papaya Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Create With Friends Photopolymer Stamp Set in Pale Papaya and Mint Macaron Inks on the top of the Basic White panel. On a small panel of Hand-Penned DSP I stamped the skirt from the bottom image Delivering Cheer stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I fussy cut the skirt using my Paper Snips and adhered it to the stamped image using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I embossed a small panel of Pale Papaya cardstock using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the panel to the back of the artwork using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Genial Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Moments Cling Stamp Set in Mint Macaron Ink on a Basic White panel. I adhered a strip of the Hand-Penned DSP to the bottom of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Pale Papaya mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Mint Macaron card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of the Hand-Penned DSP 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. This stamp set will be available starting August 3rd from the July-December 2021 Mini Catalog. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Delivering Cheer Birthday CAS

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends. Welcome to the weekend. I hope you are planning some fun activities this weekend. I’m kind of happy I have to work, the forecast is thunderstorms and rain, but living in NJ that could change in an hour.

For today and tomorrow’s cards I have a sneak peek for you using a new set coming in the July – December 2021 Mini Catalog. Today’s is a CAS card using the basics Stamp, Ink & Paper. Here’s my card for today.

I used the new Stampin’ Up! Delivering Cheer Photopolymer Stamp Set for my card today.

I stamped 2 of the images from the Delivering Cheer stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock, making sure to line up the top with the bottom.

I colored the image in using my Flirty Flamingo, Fresh Freesia, Ivory, Pale Papaya, So Saffron & Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Biggest Wish Photopolymer Stamp Set in Pale Papaya and Soft Succulent Inks on the top of the Basic White panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Thick Basic White card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Sunny Sentiments Cling Stamp Set in Soft Succulent Ink on a Basic White panel. I adhered a strip of the 2021-2023 In-Color Designer Series Paper to the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to the inside of the Thick Basic White card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of the 2021-2023 In-Color DSP to the envelope front and a panel to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you like my CAS 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.

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