Stampin’ Up! Botanical Prints Terracotta Tile Thank You

Good Monday Morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Is everyone staying healthy?  I went to our quarterly team meeting yesterday. Enjoyed lunch and stamping with my team leader Amy.  Unfortunately I was the only one who was able to make it due to the virus.  I did get to see everyone via Zoom meeting.  We made a couple cards and talked.  It was a very enjoyable afternoon.  Here  is one of the cards we made at the meeting.

We used the beautiful Stampin’ Up! Botanical Prints Product Medley that is in the 2020 January – June Mini Catalog on page 61.  Everything is included in this product medley except the cardstock and ink.  Amy always comes up with the most beautiful cards.  I embossed a panel of Whisper White cardstock using the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to an Old Olive mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Using my Light Old Olive and Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends Markers, I colored the leaves and flower centers in on a panel of the Botanical Prints Designer Series Paper.  I adhered the DSP to an Old Olive mat using Snail and then to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a scrap of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the flower image from the Botanical Prints stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the leaves and flower centers in using my Dark Daffodil Delight and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the images out using the Botanical Prints Dies.  I adhered the die cut images to the card front using Glue Dots.  I stamped the sentiment from the Botanical Prints stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of one of the labels that comes with the product medley.  I adhered the label to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few die cut leaves, that were cut from Old Olive cardstock using the Botanical Prints Dies, under the label using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.  I adhered the card front to a Terracotta Tile card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the floral image from the Botanical Prints stamp set on the top and bottom corner of a Whisper White panel in Terracotta Tile Ink and adhered the panel to the inside of the Terracotta Tile card base using Snail.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the flower image from the Botanical Prints stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the bottom of the envelope front.  I colored the images in using my Daffodil Delight and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of the 2019-2021 In-Colors 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper 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! Forever Blossoms Happy Easter

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  We’re halfway through the week already.  Hope you are having a productive week.

I have another card from our card class last week that we made.  My card was CASEd from my team leader Amy Koenders.  You can see her card here.  I thought I would change it by using a different color.  Here’s my card.

I started by stamping the large floral image from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Blossoms Cling Stamp Set in Versamark Ink on a panel of Purple Posy cardstock.  I immediately sprinkled it with my White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  Using my Purple Posy and Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Write Markers I added a little color inside the embossed flowers.  I adhered the Purple Posy panel to a Gorgeous Grape mat using Snail.

I adhered a panel of the New Sale-A-Bration item, So Very Vellum Specialty Designer Series Paper which is available free with a qualifying purchase, to a Purple Posy card base using Snail.  I adhered the matted artwork to the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut the sentiment out of a panel of Soft Sea Foam cardstock using my Word Wishes Dies.  I brushed the sentiment using Clear Wink of Stella to give is a little shimmer.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I added a few Pearl Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! A Wish For Everything Cling Stamp Set in Gorgeous Grape Ink.  Using my Purple Posy and Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Write Markers, I colored the large floral image from the Forever Blossoms stamp set and stamped it on the top of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Gorgeous Grape mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Purple Posy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the large floral image from the Forever Blossoms stamp set, which I colored using my Purple Posy and Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Write Markers, on the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of the 2019-2021 In-Colors 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper 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! Under My Umbrella for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday.  How was everyone’s week?  Hopefully your work week is over and you are ready to start the weekend.  I’m actually only working 1 day this weekend for a change.

For today’s card I used another one of my favorite stamp sets from the 2020 January-June Mini Catalog.  I played along with a few challenges and made it into a fun fold.  Here’s my card.

My colors are from Inspire. Create Challenge #064.  Here are their colors.

My sketch is from Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #358.  Here is their sketch.

I also played along with Paper Craft Crew Tic Tac Toe Challenge # 373. I went diagonally down from the top left to bottom right.

I started by stamping a Crumb Cake panel using the flower images from the Stampin’ Up! Under My Umbrella Photopolymer Stamp Set in Crumb Cake Ink randomly around.  I adhered a panel of 2019-2021 In- Color 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Night of Navy card base using Snail.  I adhered the stamped crumb cake panel on top of the DSP using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped a strip of Whisper White cardstock using the rain drop image from the Under My Umbrella stamp set in Seaside Spray Ink.  I made a banner using my Banner Triple Punch.  I made another banner slightly larger in Night of Navy cardstock using my Banner Triple Punch.  I adhered the Whisper White banner to the Night of Navy banner leaving equal amounts on the 3 sides.  On a small piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the umbrella and boots image from the Under My Umbrella stamp set in Night of Navy Ink.  I colored the umbrella in using my Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I colored the boots in using my Night of Navy Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I punched the umbrella top out using my Umbrella Builder Punch and I fussy cut the boots using my Paper Snips.  On a scrap piece of Crumb Cake cardstock I stamped the umbrella handle image from the Under My Umbrella stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink and punched it out using my Umbrella Builder Punch.  I adhered the umbrella handle to the umbrella top using a Glue Dot.  I adhered the umbrella and boots to the matted banner using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Under My Umbrella stamp set in Night of Navy Ink.  I stamped the raindrop image from the Under My Umbrella stamp set in Seaside Spray Ink  I adhered the Whisper White strip to a Night of Navy mat using Snail and added a piece of Seaside Spray Scalloped Lined Ribbon which I tied in a knot to the end using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Under My Umbrella stamp set in Night of Navy Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the flower images from the Under My Umbrella stamp set in Seaside Spray Ink around the sentiment.  I stamped the closed umbrella image from the Under My Umbrella stamp set in Night of Navy Ink and colored it in using my Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the handle image from the Under My Umbrella stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink on the umbrella.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Seaside Spray mat using Snail.  I adhered the banner to the top back of the mat so that it folded over the front using Tear & Tape Adhesive.  I adhered the sentiment strip to the right back of the mat so that it folded across over the banner using Tear & Tape Adhesive.  I adhered the matted panel to the inside of the Night of Navy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the closed umbrella image from the Under My Umbrella stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on the envelope front and colored it in using my Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the umbrella handle image in Crumb Cake Ink on the umbrella.  I stamped the flower images from the Under My Umbrella stamp set in Seaside Spray Ink to the right of the umbrella.  I adhered a panel of 2019-2021 In-Color 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!!

Stampin’ Up! Band Together Birthday Card for Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends. Welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by. This week we had a Sketch Challenge. Be sure to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects.
Here is the sketch we had to work from.

Here’s my card using the sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of 2019-2021 In-Color 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Pretty Peacock card base using Snail.  On a Whisper White panel I stamped the flower image from the Stampin’ Up! Band Together Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the image in using my Blackberry Bliss, Old Olive, Pretty Peacock and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the image out using my Rectangle Stitched Dies.  I adhered the artwork to a So Saffron mat using Snail.

On a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped just the large flower from the Band Together stamp set in tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the flower in using my Blackberry Bliss Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the image out using my Detailed Bands Dies and adhered it over the stamped flower using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the matted artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Blackberry Bliss cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Band Together stamp set in Versamark Ink.  I immediately sprinkled it with my White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I adhered it to the card front using a Stampin’ Dimensional and a Glue Dot.  I added a Candle Embellishment to the left of the sentiment and some Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the artwork.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Band Together stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I stamped the flower image from the Band Together  stamp set in So Saffron Ink, stamping of once, over the sentiment.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a So Saffron mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Pretty Peacock card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the flower image from the Band Together stamp set on the bottom front of the envelope and colored it in using my Blackberry Bliss, Old Olive, Pretty Peacock and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of the 2019-2021 In-Color 6X6 DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Forever Blossoms Wedding Sneak Peek

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  How has everyone’s week started off?  One week from today is Christmas Eve, yikes!!  Have you gotten you shopping done, baking done, cards mailed.  You all know I got my baking done.  My cards just went in the mail (here’s hoping they get to everyone on time).  Shopping??? Well, I haven’t really gotten any done.  I’ve sent my husband out to pick things up, guess that’s next on my list of things to do.  I’m really running out of time here.

For today I have another sneak peek for you using the Stampin’ Up! Forever Blossoms Bundle.  When I saw this set in the New 2020 Mini Catalog, I just knew I had to have it.  My son needs a wedding card for New Years Day, so I thought I’d play around with this bundle.  Here’s my card.

I started by embossing a Whisper White card front using the new Parisian Flourish 3D Embossing Folder.  I stamped the large floral image from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Blossoms Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink twice on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I colored the image in using my Purple Posy and Soft Seafoam Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the images out using the Cherry Blossoms Dies.

I adhered the cut images to the embossed Whisper White panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue letting them hang off on either side.  I cut the pieces that were hanging off the card front to make them even.  I adhered the card front to a Soft Seafoam mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I stamped the sentiment from the Forever Blossoms stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a thin strip of Whisper White cardstock.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered the matted card front to a Purple Posy card base using Stampin’ Dimensional.  I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the large floral image from the Forever Blossoms stamp set in Soft Seafoam Ink on a panel of Whisper White.  I stamped the sentiment from the Forever Blossoms stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink over the floral image in the center of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Soft Seafoam mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Purple Posy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I added a couple more Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the inside.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the large floral image from the Forever Blossoms stamp set in Soft Seafoam Ink on the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of Purple Posy 2019-2021 In-Color 6″ X 6″ Designer Series Paper to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card.  Stamp Set, Dies and Embossing Folder used for today’s card will be available in just 2 1/2 short weeks. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Country Home CAS Thank You

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  We’re already half way through the week.  I finally have a day off, my 1st day off in about 3 weeks.  I’m so looking forward to spending some time at my craft table after I’m done with my errands.  I’m also going to decide if I’m going to join my team in doing a Facebook Live video this Saturday for World Card Making Day.  Part of me wants to  and the other part is so nervous.  There’s a link below to join in and watch everyone do their card making on Facebook.

For today’s card I pulled out an older set to make you a clean and simple thank you card.  I will apologize now for my photos.  For some reason Smoky Slate doesn’t photograph well.  Here’s my card.

I played along with a couple challenges today.  I joined in with the CAS Colours & Sketch Challenge #341.  Here are their colors this week.

I also joined in with Sunday Stamps Sketch Challenge #214.  Here is their sketch.

I started by stamping the pitcher image from the Stampin’ Up! Country Home Photopolymer Stamp Set in Smoky Slate Ink on a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the floral image from the Country Home stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink above the pitcher.  I colored the image in using my Mint Macaron, Rococo Rose and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I adhered the artwork to a panel of Rococo Rose 2019-2021 In-Color Designer Series Paper using Snail.  I then adhered it to the card base using Snail.

I cut out the ‘thanks’ from a scrap of Rococo Rose cardstock using the Well Written Dies.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the floral image from the Country Home stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink, stamping off twice, in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the Country Home stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink over the floral image.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Rococo Rose mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Smoky Slate card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the floral image from the Country Home stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink on the envelope front and colored it in the same as I did for the card front.  I adhered a panel of the Rococo Rose 2019-2021 In-Colors DSP to the 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! Painted Harvest Card

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  We made it half way through the week already.  Hope your week is going well.

For today’s card I used one of my favorite stamp sets to create a different sunflower.  I’m not quite sure what I was thinking when I decided to fussy cut the whole sunflower out, but I did it.   Here’s my card.

My colors were inspired by Just Add Ink Challenge #474.  Here are their colors.

My design was inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge #323.  Here is their sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of Come To Gather Designer Series Paper to a Blackberry Bliss card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I cut 2 of the Stitched Nested Labels Dies out, one in Rococo Rose cardstock and the other a size smaller in the Rococo Rose 2019-2021 In-Colors 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper.  I adhered the DSP label to the Rococo Rose label using Snail and then to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small Whisper White panel I stamped the 1st part of the sunflower image from the Stampin’ Up! Painted Harvest Photopolymer Stamp Set in Rococo Rose Ink.  I stamped the 2nd step of the sunflower from the Painted Harvest stamp set in Blackberry Bliss Ink over the 1st image.  I stamped the sunflower center image from the Painted Harvest stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink.  I stamped the sunflower seed image from the Painted Harvest stamp set in Soft Suede Ink.  I then fussy cut the sunflower out using my Paper Snips.  I adhered Stampin’ Dimensionals. to the back of the sunflower and added some of the Rose Metallic Thread to it so that it was sneaking out all around the sunflower.  I adhered the sunflower to the card front.  I stamped 3 of the leaf images from the Painted Harvest stamp set on a small panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I stamped the detailed leaf image in Mossy Meadow Ink and the fill in leaf image in Mossy Meadow Ink stamping off once.  I punched the leaves out using my Leaf Punch.  I adhered the leaves under the sunflower using Glue Dots.

On a strip of Blackberry Bliss cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! A Little Lace Cling Stamp Set in Versamark Ink.  I immediately sprinkled it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I made a banner of the sentiment strip.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added some Pearl Basic Jewels that I had colored in using my Dark Blackberry Bliss Stampin’ Blend Marker.

On the inside I stamped the sunflower image from the Painted Harvest stamp set, the same as I did for the card front, on the bottom corner of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the Painted Harvest stamp set in the center of the Whisper White panel in Blackberry Bliss Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Blackberry Bliss card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the sunflower image from the Painted Harvest stamp set on the front of the envelope the same as I did for the card front.  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!!
