Stampin’ Up Everything Amazing Birthday Card

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers.  How are you doing today?  The weekend is almost here again, hope you are starting to make some fun plans.

For today’s card a friend of mine asked me to make a card for a 50th birthday.  Here’s what I came up with.

I joined in with Sunday Stamps Challenge #208.  Here is their sketch.

I also played along with TGIF Challenge #219.  Here are their colors.

I started by embossing a panel of Purple Posy card stock using the Scripty 3D Embossing Folder.  I then took a piece of the Seaside Spray Scalloped Lined Ribbon and cut it in half length wise.  I adhered a piece to the top and bottom of the embossed panel using Snail.  I adhered the embossed panel to a 2019-2021 In-Color 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper Rococo Rose card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered the DSP card front to a Rococo Rose card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the large sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Everything Amazing Photopolymer Stamp Set in VersaMark Ink.  I immediately sprinkled it with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I cut the sentiment out using the Stitched Rectangle Dies.

I stamped the 2 smaller sentiment from the Everything Amazing stamp set in Rococo Rose Ink on the lines from the large sentiment.  I stamped the floral image from Stampin’ Up Pocketful of Happiness Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the top corner of the rectangle.  I colored the floral image in using my Rococo Rose and Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and added 3 gold Metallic Pearls.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Itty Bitty Birthdays Cling Stamp Set in VersaMark Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I immediately sprinkled it with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I stamped the floral images from the Pocketful of Happiness stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the top and bottom 2 corners and colored them in using my Purple Posy,  Rococo Rose and Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Rococo Rose card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card, I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the floral image from the Pocketful of Happiness stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored them in the same as I did for the card.  I adhered a panel of the 2019-2021 In-Color 6 X 6 DSP to the envelope flap.

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

Stampin’ Up Path of Petals Sympathy Card

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  How is everyone’s week progressing?

Today’s card is one that we all need at one time or another unfortunately.  A co-worker lost his wife last week at way too young of an age.  I spent many times with her since her daughter was one of my Girl Scouts  when she was in elementary school.  She was a fun woman to be around and I’m happy I had the opportunity to get to know her.  Here’s today’s card.

My card was inspired by CAS(E) This Sketch Challenge #329.  Here is their sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of the gorgeous Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper to a Blueberry Bushel card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered 2 smaller panels of the Pressed Petals Specialty DSP to 2 Blueberry Bushel mats using Snail.  I adhered the matted panels to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered a smaller panel of Blueberry Bushel cardstock to the right side of the card front under the 2 matted panels.  On a small piece of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Path of Petals Photopolymer Stamp Set in Blueberry Bushel Ink.

On the inside I stamped the 3 step floral image from the Path of Petals stamp set in Daffodil Delight, Mossy Meadow and Rococo Rose Inks on the left side of a Very Vanilla panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the Path of Petals stamp set in Blueberry Bushel Ink to the right of the floral image.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to the inside of the Blueberry Bushel card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I stamped the 3 step floral image from the Path of Petals stamp set the same as I did for inside of the card.  I adhered a panel of Pressed Petals 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 Seaside Notions For Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers. It’s the 2nd Tuesday of the month and you know what that means, it’s time for another Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop. The 2nd Tuesday of every month this amazing group of ladies put together a blog hop and you are guaranteed to see some awesome projects. This month our theme is ‘CELEBRATE SUMMER’. We can interpret this any way we would like to.  I’m excited to see what everyone comes up with.  If you are starting with me, be sure to hop around to see everyone’s projects. If you’ve hopped over from Amy Koenders , welcome to my blog and thank you for stopping by.

For today’s card I chose the Stampin’ Up Seaside Notions Cling Stamp Set to use.  Nothing says summer to me more than seashells and waves.  Here’s my card.

I played along with the Paper Craft Crew Challenge #342.  They had a Tic Tac Toe Challenge.  I went right across the top.   Here’s their challenge.

I started by stamping the seahorse from the Seaside Notions stamp set in VersaMark Ink on a panel of So Saffron Vellum from the Perennial Essence Vellum Cardstock.  I immediately sprinkled it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I then fussy cut the seahorse using my Paper Snips.  I stamped the 3 different seashells from the Seaside Notions stamp set in VersaMark Ink on scraps of Petal Pink, Pool Party and Purple Posy cardstock.  I sprinkled them with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set them using my Heat Tool.  I fussy cut all the shells out using my Paper Snips.  I cut the seaweed out from the Smooth Sailing Dies in Pear Pizzazz cardstock and Old Olive Vellum cardstock.  I cut the coral out in Petal Pink Vellum cardstock from the Under The Sea Dies.  I cut the sand dollar out of Whisper White cardstock using the Under The Seas Dies.  Last I cut the school of fish out from the Under The Sea Dies in Calypso Coral cardstock.

Using the 3rd largest Layering Circle Dies, I cut the circle out of the card front and the card base.  I embossed the card front using the High Seas 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the card front to the Seaside Spray card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered all the elements to the card front using Glue Dots, Multipurpose Liquid Glue, Fine Tip Glue Pen or Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Doing the collage part on the bottom was fun, but when it came to the school of fish on the top, I don’t know what I was thinking.  The Fine Tip Glue Pen really came in handy for them along with my craft tweezers. I added a few Clear Epoxy Droplets above the seahorse.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Seaside Notions stamp set in Seaside Spray Ink on a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sand image from the Seaside Notions stamp set on the bottom of the Whisper White panel in Sahara Sand Ink stamping off once.  I took the negative piece where I cut the school of fish and used that as a stencil and sponged the fish on top of the sentiment in Calypso Coral Ink using a Sponge Dauber.  I added a couple more shells that I had embossed and fussy cut on the bottom of the panel using Snail.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Seaside Spray card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the sand image from the Seaside Notions stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink across the bottom front of the envelope and the bottom of the envelope flap.  I stamped the seahorse from the Seaside Notions stamp set on the side of the envelope front.  I stamped the shells from the Seaside Notions stamp set on the bottom front of the envelope and the envelope flap in Petal Pink, Pool Party and Purple Posy Inks.

Stampin’ Up Daisy Lane Birthday Card and Buying Special

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and that some of you were lucky enough to have a 4 day weekend. At the end of my post today I have a little special going on, so don’t forget to scroll down.

For today’s card I used the Stampin’ Up Daisy Lane Bundle for my card.  Here’s my card.

My design was inspired by the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #395.  Here is their sketch.

I also joined in with Watercooler Wednesday Challenge #228.  Here is their theme.

I started by adhering a panel of the gorgeous Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper to a Petal Pink card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered another strip of the Perennial Essence DSP across the center of the card front using Snail.

I cut a circle out or Whisper White cardstock using the largest circle from the Layering Circle Dies.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Beauty Abounds Cling Stamp Set in Blackberry Bliss Ink on the top of the circle.  I stamped the fern image from the Stampin’ Up Daisy Lane Cling Stamp Set 3 times in Old Olive Ink, stamping off once, below the sentiment on the circle.  On a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the smaller daisy from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Blackberry Bliss Ink twice and punched them out using the Medium Daisy Punch.  I adhered the daisies together using a Glue Dot and then adhered it to the center of the stamped circle using a Stampin’ Dimensional.

Using the Leaf Punch, I punched out 3 leaves from Old Olive Vellum paper from the Perennial Essence 12X12 Vellum Cardstock.  I adhered the leaves using Glue Dots under the punched daisy.  I adhered a Perennial Essence Floral Center in the center of the daisy.

On the inside I stamped the stem from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Old Olive Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock, stamping off 3 times.  I stamped the daisy image from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Blackberry Bliss Ink on the stem stamping off 4 times.  I stamped the sentiment from the Daisy Lane stamp set over the stamped image in Blackberry Bliss Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Blackberry Bliss mat using Snail and then to 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 the fern image from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Old Olive Ink on the bottom front stamping once in full strength and then stamped off once.  I stamped the daisy image from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Blackberry Bliss Ink between the fern.  On the envelope flap I adhered a panel of the Perennial Essence DSP.

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

Stampin’ Up Sailing Home Z-Fold Birthday Card

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to Fun Fold Friday.  I hope you all had a wonderful 4th of July.  Some of you may be lucky enough to have today off making this a 4 day weekend for you.

I have a masculine Z-Fold card for you today using one of my absolute favorite suites, Come Sail Away.  Here’s my card.

I joined in with Sisterhood of Crafters Challenge.  Their challenge is ‘Any Occasion’.

I also played along with Seize The Birthday Challenge#169.  Their challenge is ‘Sunshine’.

My card also joined in with Stampin’ Up Only Challenge #226.  Their theme is ‘Birthdays’.

I started by scoring and folding my Night of Navy card base at 4 1/4″ and 2 1/8″.  I folded my card base in half and then I folded the front back.

I adhered a panel of Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper to the 2 1/8″ piece of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I wrapped a piece of the Night of Navy/Sahara Sand Bakers Twine around the front folded piece and tied a square knot (it seemed appropriate).

I adhered a laser cut panel from the Come Sail Away Memories & More Card Pack to a panel of Night of Navy cardstock using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the artwork to the 2 1/8″ side using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  On a small strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Itty Bitty Greetings Cling Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using the banner die from the Smooth Sailing Dies.  I edged the banner using my Night of Navy Stampin’ Write Marker then adhered it to the artwork using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I adhered a panel of the Come Sail Away DSP to the inside of the Night of Navy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock, I stamped the larger sailboat image from the Stampin’ Up Sailing Home Cling Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink stamping off 3 times.  I stamped the sentiment from the Sailing Home stamp set in Night of Navy Ink over the sailboat.  I stamped the birds from the Sailing Home stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on the top of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I added a little Sail Away Trinket to the bottom corner using a Glue Dot so that you could see in when the card is opened or closed.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the lighthouse and sailboat from the Sailing Home stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of the Come Sail Away 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.  Z-Fold cards are one of the easiest Fun Fold card and you can do so many different things with it.  Stampin’ Up has made it very easy to order entire suites now.  I used everything that comes in the Come Sail Away Suite except for the 3D Embossing Folder.  One number now can order everything in the suite.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up Very Versailles CAS Card

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers and HAPPY 4TH OF JULY!! I hope you have something fun planned for today.  Maybe a picnic or 2 or just going to watch fireworks tonight.  Whatever you do, have fun and be safe.

For today I have a really clean and simple card for you.   I used just Stamps, Ink and Paper, the basics of card making.  Here’s my card.

The colors for my card were inspired by CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge #328.  Here is their color scheme.

I started with a Whisper White card front and stamped the script image from the Stampn’ Up Very Versailles Cling Stamp Set in Petal Pink Ink on the top and bottom of opposite sides.  I stamped the leaf image from the Very Versailles stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink on the opposite sides on the top and bottom of the Whisper White panel.

I then tore the edges all around the stamped panel and sponged them, using my Stamping Sponge, in Crumb Cake Ink to give my card an antique look.  I stamped the sentiment from the Very Versailles stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink over the leaves and script images.

I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Flirty Flamingo card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the leaf image from the Very Versailles stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink on both sides of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the Very Versailles stamp set in the center of the panel.  I tore the edges of the Whisper White panel and sponged them the same as I did for the card front.  I adhered the panel to the inside of the Flirty Flamingo card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the scripty image from the Very Versailles stamp set on the front of the envelope and the envelope flap in Petal Pink Ink.  I stamped the leaf image from the Very Versailles stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink over the script image on the front and back of the envelope.  I sponged all around the envelope front and the envelope flap using my Stamping Sponge in Crumb Cake Ink.

Thank you for visiting my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. This is a great card for a beginner with just a tiny technique added in.

Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up Daisy Lane Delight Thank You Card

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  How is you week going?  I spent over 6 hours on the beach yesterday and it was simply wonderful.  The air was in the 90’s and the water was a chilly 70.  I found lots of sea glass, which seems to be a lot harder to find these days.  The only bad thing was the sand was so hot It burned our feet, other than that, it was a perfect day.  I can’t wait to go back again real soon.  Is anyone making plans for the 4th of July?

I have another quick and easy card for you today where I let the Designer Series Paper do most of the work for me.  Here’s my card.

I have combined the Stampin’ Up Daisy Lane Cling Stamp Set and the Stampin’ Up  Daisy Delight Cling Stamp Set on my card today.  I started by adhering a panel of Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper to a Mossy Meadow card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped the sentiment from the Daisy Delight stamp set in VersaMark Ink on the bottom of the Mossy Meadow panel. I immediately sprinkled it with Shimmer White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I wrapped a piece of the Mossy Meadow Linen Thread from the Magnolia Lane Ribbon Combo Pack around the card front twice.  I adhered the card front to a Mossy Meadow card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the smaller daisy from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Flirty Flamingo Ink 3 times.  I punched the daisies out using the Medium Daisy Punch.  I adhered the daisies together using Glue Dots and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a Perennial Essence Floral Center to the daisy.

On the inside I stamped the stem from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink, stamping off 3 times, on a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the daisy from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Flirty Flamingo Ink on the stem stamping it off twice.  I stamped the sentiment from the Daisy Delight stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink in the center of the Whisper White panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Mossy Meadow card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the stem from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped the daisy from the Daisy Lane on the stem in Flirty Flamingo Ink  I adhered a panel of the Perennial Essence 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!!
