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!!

So, for today’s card I have a quick and easy knid of a fun fold for you along with a sneak peek of  some new 2019-2021 In-Colors.  Here’s my card.

I started by adhering a panel of the new Pretty Peacock 2019-2021 In-Colors Designer Series Paper to a Rococo Rose card base.  On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Enjoy Life Stamp Set in Pretty Peacock.  I stamped one of the butterflies from the Enjoy Life stamp set in Rococo Rose Ink above the sentiment.  I cut the sentiment out using the 2nd largest square from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I cut the matching scalloped square from the Layering Squares Dies from Rococo Rose cardstock.

I adhered the sentiment panel to the scalloped mat using Snail and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a couple of the new Rococo Rose 2019-2021 Faceted Dots to the artwork.

This is where it is kind of a fun fold.   The edges of the card do not meet, and I did this on purpose.  I added a strip of the Pretty Peacock 2019-2021 In-Color DSP to the inside edge of the card.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Enjoy Life stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped one of the butterflies from the Enjoy Life stamp set in Pretty Peacock above the sentiment.  I stamped the tall floral image from the Enjoy Life stamp set on the bottom of the Whisper White panel.  I stamped the 2 end ones off once and the center one I stamped off twice.  I stamped the small flower image and the butterflies, both from the Enjoy Life stamp set, in Rococo Rose Ink between the tall flowers and above.  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 tall flowers from the Enjoy Life stamp set in  Pretty Peacock Ink on the envelope front, the same as I did for the card.  I stamped the small flowers and the butterflies from the Enjoy Life stamp set in Rococo Rose Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped a couple butterflies from the Enjoy Life stamp set on the envelope back in Pretty Peacock Ink.  I stamped a couple of the small flowers from the Enjoy Life stamp set on the envelope back in Rococo Rose Ink.  I adhered a piece of the Pretty Peacock 2019-2021 In-Color 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!!
