Stampin’ Up! Ranunculus Romance for The Card Concepts

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. We’re halfway through and on our way to the weekend. I hope everyone’s week is going well. I had 1 day off this week, and it was yesterday. I made the most of it for sure. By 9am I had brought my daughter to the train station, started laundry, did a sink full of dishes from a mess I made, and I had 20 containers of homemade pesto made. My basil was unbelievable this year, I had leaves the size of my hand, and the smell was amazing. The rest of the day was spent doing my normal chores around the house, running errands, taking the puppy out multiple times, appointments a little bit of gardening and finding time to catch up on emails. I’m really looking forward to my next day off, next Tuesday, already lol.

It’s time for an inspiration challenge for The Card Concepts. This week we have 2 inspiration photos. The inspiration is Travel Abroad or Stay At Home. You can pick something from the photo, or you can go with the colors. Here is my card that was inspired from the 1st challenge photo.

Stampin' Up! Ranunculus Romance Hello 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Ranunculus Romance Cling Stamp Set along with the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Moments Cling Stamp Set, Rectangle Postage Stamp Punch and the Vellum Layering Designs Paper for my Clean and Layered card this week.

I hope you will take a moment to visit The Card Concepts and join us for our challenge #180a or 180b.  Which of the photos are your inspired by?

Stampin' Up! Ranunculus Romance Hello 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by adhering a panel of the Vellum Layering Designs Paper to a Basic Black card base. I only put the adhesive behind where I was going to put the artwork since you can see it through the vellum.

Stampin' Up! Ranunculus Romance Hello 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

From a panel of Basic White cardstock, using my Rectangle Postage Stamp Punch, I punched out 5 rectangles. On 2 of the rectangles, I stamped the floral images from the Ranunculus Romance stamp set in Balmy Blue Ink. On 2 of the rectangles, I first stamped the script image in So Saffron Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper. I then stamped the sentiments in Tuxedo Black Ink over the script. On the last rectangle, I stamped the Eiffel Tower image from the Ranunculus Romance stamp set in Poppy Parade Ink.

Stampin' Up! Ranunculus Romance Hello 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

I adhered the punched rectangle stamps to So Saffron mats using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the layered panels to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Peaceful Moments stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the rose image from the Ranunculus Romance stamp set in Balmy Blue Ink on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a So Saffron mat then to the inside of the Basic Black card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the images from the Ranunculus Romance stamp set in Balmy Blue, Poppy Parade, So Saffron and Tuxedo Black on the envelope front and flap.

Stampin’ Up! Leaves of Holly Slimline

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends. I hope your week has started well. I’ve got a busy one ahead of me. Today is my only day off and I’ll be working the next 6 days straight. Maybe I’ll be surprised, and they won’t schedule me for Sunday.

Today’s card is another one that we made at our quarterly team meeting a couple weeks ago. This one was designed by another one of our team members Darryl Robbins. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Leaves of Holly Slimline 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Leaves of Holly Bundle along with the Boughs of Holly Designer Series Paper for my card today. This was the first time I’ve made a Slimline card and I think it came out pretty good since I didn’t know what I was doing.

Stampin' Up! Leaves of Holly Slimline 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by adhering a panel of Boughs of Holly DSP to a Cherry Cobbler mat. I adhered the layered panel to the panel of Mossy Meadow cardstock using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the layered panels to the 1 7/8″ section of the Mossy Meadow card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Leaves of Holly Slimline 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

Using the Holly Berry Dies, I cut the holly frame die from a panel of Cherry Cobbler cardstock. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Leaves of Holly Photopolymer Stamp Set in Cherry Cobbler Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I cut the sentiment out using the Holly Berry Dies. I adhered the holly frame to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the sentiment inside the frame using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Leaves of Holly Slimline 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the panel of Mossy Meadow cardstock, I stamped the smaller holly leaf image from the Leaves of Holly stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink. I cut the leaves out using the Holly Berry Dies. On the panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the berry image from the Leaves of Holly stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink and cut them out with the Holly Berry Dies. I adhered the leaves to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the berries over the leaves using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

Stampin' Up! Leaves of Holly Slimline 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

For the inside. I stamped the holly leaf images from the Leaves of Holly stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink on the top of a Basic White panel. I stamped the berry image by the holly leaves in Cherry Cobbler Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat and then to the inside of the Mossy Meadow card base. I stamped the sentiment from the Leaves of Holly stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I cut the 2 ends on an angle using my Paper Snips. I adhered a piece of the Natural 1/2″ Woven Ribbon on the bottom of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the sentiment over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I colored 2 of the Textural Elements using the Cherry Cobbler and Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Textural Elements on either side of the panel where I wanted the easel to stand using Glue Dots on the berry parts.

Stampin' Up! Leaves of Holly Slimline 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To finish my card, I decorated a Slimline Envelope. I stamped the holly leaf images from the Leaves of Holly stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink and the berry image in Cherry Cobbler Ink on the envelope front.

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

Stampin’ Up! Kindest Gnomes Thank You

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend? It was a gorgeous one here in NJ, a perfect sunny and not too hot weekend. I was able to enjoy a bit of my Sunday since I only had to work half day.

Today’s card is similar to one that I made at our mystery stamping last Tuesday. I made another one with the same idea using a different stamp set, DSP and dies. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Kindest Gnomes Thank You 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Kindest Gnomes Bundle along with the Storybook Gnomes Designer Series Paper, Design A Daydream Host Designer Series Paper and the Basic Borders Dies for my card today.

Stampin' Up! Kindest Gnomes Thank You 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by cutting the front of a Pool Party card base using the Basic Borders Dies. I cut a panel of Pool Party cardstock the same way with the Basic Borders Dies. I embossed the panel using the Into The Clouds Embossing Folder. I adhered the embossed panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I colored the image using my Calypso Coral, Crumb Cake, Highland Heather, Ivory, Petal Pink and Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the gnome to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment from the Kindest Gnomes stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I adhered the sentiment to the top of the panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Fine Sparkle Adhesive-Backed Gems to the card front.

Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Friendship Thank You

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. I hope you are having a great weekend. I will only be working a half day today, so I’ll have the afternoon to do something. A couple of my cashiers needed off so I’m splitting the day with another cashier that worked with me yesterday.

Today’s card is very similar to one that I made on Thursday except I changed the direction, DSP and embellishments. I also used my least favorite color, but for some reason I really like it for fall cards. I never make 2 cards identical, but I will make them similar by changing direction and some of the components a bit. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Beauty of Friendship Thank You 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Friendship Photopolymer Stamp Set, the Stampin’ Up! Charming Sentiments Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Butterfly Kisses 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my card today.

Stampin' Up! Beauty of Friendship Thank You 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by adhering a panel of Butterfly Kisses DSP to a Soft Suede mat. I adhered the layered panel to a Crushed Curry card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Beauty of Friendship Thank You 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the tree trunk image from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set in Soft Suede Ink. I stamped the solid treetop image from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set in Crushed Curry Ink over the branches. I stamped the detailed treetop image from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set in Pumpkin Pie Ink over the Crushed Curry image. I cut the image our using the largest die from the Seasonal Labels Dies. I adhered the die cut image to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Beauty of Friendship Thank You 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

I stamped the sentiment from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the panel of Basic White cardstock. I cut the sentiment out with the smaller die from the Seasonal Labels Dies. Using the same die, I cut a panel of Soft Suede cardstock. I cut the Soft Suede die cut in half and adhered it to the back of the sentiment making a small mat. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using a Stampin’ Dimensionals and Glue Dot. I tied a knot with a piece of the Natural Finish 7/8″ Ribbon and adhered it to the card front using Glue Dots.

Stampin' Up! Beauty of Friendship Thank You 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Charming Sentiments in Soft Suede Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the tree trunk image from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the solid treetop image from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set in Crushed Curry Ink over the branches. I stamped the detailed treetop image in Pumpkin Pie Ink over the Crushed Curry image. I stamped the splotch image in Crushed Curry and Pumpkin Pie Inks below the tree. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Soft Suede mat, then to the inside of the Crushed Curry card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the tree images from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set in Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie and Soft Suede Inks on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of Butterfly Kisses DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Apple Harvest Friendship

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends, welcome to the weekend. I hope you have something fun planned. I’ll be working all day today.

This past Tuesday was our team meeting. After we finish with the business part of the meeting, we do some mystery stamping. Our upline Jaimie gives us measurements of cardstock and DSP and lets us know what other products we may need. The rest is up to us. She talks up through what to do and at the end our cards are all similar, but also very different. Here’s what I came up with.

Stampin' Up! Apple Harvest Friendship 1 creativestanpingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Apple Harvest Bundle along with the Gingham Cottage Designer Series Paper for my card today. This bundle is only available until September 30, 2022. The stamp set is in the July-December 2022 Mini Catalog.

Stampin' Up! Apple Harvest Friendship 2 creativestanpingdesigns.com

I started by making a small mark about 1 3/4″ up from the bottom left front of a So Saffron card base. I cut from that mark to the bottom right corner using my Paper Trimmer.

Stampin' Up! Apple Harvest Friendship 3 creativestanpingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the apple image from the Stampin’ Up! Apple Harvest Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image using my Flirty Flamingo, Granny Apple Green, Poppy Parade, Soft Suede and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image out using my Apple Blossoms Dies. I cut a panel of Granny Apple Green cardstock using the Stylish Shapes Dies. I embossed the die cut panel using the Stitched Greenery Die.

Stampin' Up! Apple Harvest Friendship 4 creativestanpingdesigns.com

I adhered the die cut apple image to the Granny Apple Green panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I tied a small bow with Linen Thread and adhered it to the apple stem using a Glue Dot. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment from the Apple Harvest stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the Basic White panel. I cut the sentiment out using the Harvest Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the card base along the bottom angled edge using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I colored a few of the Pearl Basic Jewels using my Dark Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends Marker. I adhered the pearls to the card front.

Stampin' Up! Apple Harvest Friendship 5 creativestanpingdesigns.com

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Apple Harvest stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Granny Apple Green mat then to the inside top of the So Saffron card base. I adhered a panel of Gingham Cottage DSP to the inside bottom of the So Saffron card base.

Stampin' Up! Apple Harvest Friendship 6 creativestanpingdesigns.com

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the apple image from the Apple Harvest stamp set on the envelope front and colored it the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of the Gingham Cottage DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin' Up! Apple Harvest Friendship 7 creativestanpingdesigns.com

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

Stampin’ Up! Apple Harvest for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Has anyone made any plans for the long weekend yet? I’ll be working all day tomorrow, but only half day Sunday, so I’ll get most of the day to do something.

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 is my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Apple Harvest Fun Fold 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Apple Harvest Bundle along with the Gingham Cottage Designer Series Paper for my card today. This bundle will only be available until September 30, 2022. The stamp set is in the July -December 2022 Mini Catalog, but you will really want the dies to go with it. There are 25 dies in the pack and it’s an awesome pack of dies that you will absolutely love to have with the stamp set. Grab it while it’s available as a bundle and save yourself 10%.

I played along with the Creative Creases Challenge #41.

Stampin' Up! Apple Harvest Fun Fold 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by stamping the apples on the branch image from the Apple Harvest stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Basic Whtie cardstock. I cut the image using the Apple Blossoms Dies. I cut 7 of the small flowers dies from the Apple Blossoms Dies from the same panel of Basic White cardstock. I colored the image in using my Grann Apple Green, Poppy Parade, Soft Suede and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers. Using the Apple Blossom Dies I cut 8 of the flower centers from a panel of Flirty Flamingo cardstock, 10 leaves from a panel of Granny Apple Green cardstock and 2 branches from a panel of Soft Suede Cardstock.

Stampin' Up! Apple Harvest Fun Fold 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

Using the 3rd largest Deckled Rectangle Die I cut a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the small background image from the Apple Harvest stamp set in Poppy Parade Ink a few times where I was going to adhere the dies. I adhered the large colored die using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the leaves to the branches using tiny drops of Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the branches just under the apple branch image using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the flower centers to the flowers using tiny amounts of Multipurpose Liquid Glue and adhered the flowers to the branches using Glue Dots. I adhered the artwork to a Poppy Parade mat.

Stampin' Up! Apple Harvest Fun Fold 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

I adhered a panel of Gingham Cottage DSP to a Poppy Parade Mat. I adhered the layered panel to the Basic Whtie card front. I adhered the layered artwork to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I stamped the sentiment from the Apple Harvest stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I cut the sentiment out using the Apple Blossoms Dies and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

Stampin' Up! Apple Harvest Fun Fold 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

I scored the Basic White Thick card base at 1 3/8″ & 2 3/4″ flipped the panel over and scored at 1 3/8″ & 2 3/4″ on the other end. I folded the 2 3/4″ score lines in and folded the 1 3/8″ score lines out. I adhered a panel of Gingham Cottage DSP to a Poppy Parade mat. I adhered the layered panel to the right folded panel. I adhered the layered card front to the left folded panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On the inside, I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Through It Together Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the apple image from the Apple Harvest stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom of the panel. I colored the image using the Granny Apple Green, Poppy Parade, Soft Suede and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Poppy Parade mat, then to the inside of the Basic White Thick card base.

Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Friendship 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’s blog, thank you for stopping by. This week we have Sketch Challenge. Here is my card using this week’s Sketch.

Stampin' Up! Beauty of Friendship Birthday 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Friendship Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Neutrals 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper, Stampin’ Up! Charming Sentiments Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Seasonal Labels Dies for my card today.

Here’s our sketch for this week.

Stampin' Up! Beauty of Friendship Birthday 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by adhering a panel of the Neutrals DSP to a Soft Suede card base.

Stampin' Up! Beauty of Friendship Birthday 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the tree trunk image from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set in Soft Suede Ink. I stamped the solid image of the treetop from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set in Crushed Curry Ink and the detailed treetop image in Pumpkin Pie Ink over the Crushed Curry image. I cut the image out using the largest die from the Seasonal Labels Dies.

Stampin' Up! Beauty of Friendship Birthday 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

I adhered the die cut image to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I cut the sentiment out using the smaller die from the Seasonal Labels Dies. I adhered a piece of Crumb Cake Bakers Twine from the Bakers Twine Essential Pack to the artwork using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the sentiment over the twine using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Rustic Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dots to the card front.

Stampin' Up! Beauty of Friendship Birthday 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Charming Sentiments stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the tree trunk image from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set in Soft Suede Ink. I stamped the treetop images from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set in Crushed Curry and Pumpkin Pie Inks. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Pumpkin Pie mat and then to the inside of the Soft Suede card base.

Stampin' Up! Beauty of Friendship Birthday 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the tree images from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set in Soft Suede, Crushed Curry and Pumpkin Pie on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the Neutrals DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Leaves of Holly Z-Fold

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

Today’s card is another one that we made at our in-person quarterly meeting this past Sunday. This one was designed by Carol Buckalew who is from Delaware. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Leaves of Holly Z-Fold 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Leaves of Holly Bundle along with the Boughs of Holly Designer Series Paper for my card today.

Stampin' Up! Leaves of Holly Z-Fold 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by adhering 2 panels of Boughs of Holly DSP to the first 2 sections of the Cherry Cobbler card base.

Stampin' Up! Leaves of Holly Z-Fold 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

Using the Holly Berry Dies I cut 2 solid leaves and 2 detailed leave from panels of Brushed Metallic Paper. I cut the solid berries from a panel of Poppy Parade and the detailed berries from a panel of Cherry Cobbler cardstock. I cut the pine boughs from panels of Basic White and Soft Succulent cardstock. I adhered a panel of Boughs of Holly DSP to an Evening Evergreen mat. I adhered a piece of Gold 3/8″ Shimmer Ribbon to the layered panel using Stampin’ Seal.

Stampin' Up! Leaves of Holly Z-Fold 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

I adhered the detailed holly leaves to the solid holly leaves using tiny amounts of Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the detailed berries to the solid berries using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the Holly leaves to the panel over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the berries to the bottom of the leaves using Glue Dots. I snuck the pine boughs under the holly leaves adhering them using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I stamped the sentiment from the Leaves of Holly stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I cut the sentiment using the Holly Berry Dies. I adhered the sentiment using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Festive Pearls to the panel. I adhered the collage panel to the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals only on the left half.

Stampin' Up! Leaves of Holly Z-Fold 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside, I stamped the sentiments from the Leaves of Holly stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I adhered a panel of Boughs of Holly DSP to the Basic White panel. I adhered the layered panel to the inside of the Cherry Cobbler card base.

Stampin' Up! Leaves of Holly Z-Fold 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of the Boughs of Holly DSP to the envelope front and a panel to the envelope flap.
