Stampin’ Up! Framed & Festive CAS

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends and welcome to the weekend. I made it to Jacksonville yesterday. We had a wonderful dinner meeting up with all my team members. This morning I’m off to OnStage. By the time you read this I’ll be heading over to OnStage to check in and start the event. I can’t wait to see the new catalog.

Today I have the quickest and easiest card I think I’ve ever made. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Framed & festive CAS 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Framed & Festive Cling Stamp Set and the Whimsical Woodland 3D Embossing Folder for my card today.

Stampin' Up! Framed & festive CAS 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by embossing a Basic White card front using the Whimsical Woodland 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the embossed panel to a Basic White Thick card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Framed & Festive stamp set in Tahitian Tide Ink. I cut the sentiment out using the Deckled Rectangle Dies.

Stampin' Up! Framed & festive CAS 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

I adhered a piece of the Balmy Blue 5/8″ Double Stitched Ribbon to the card front using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the sentiment over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Fine Sparkle Adhesive Backed Gems to the card front.

On the inside, I stamped the sentiments from the Framed & Festive stamp set in Tahitian Tide Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I adhered a strip of the 2022-2024 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to the inside of the Basic White Thick card base.

Stampin’ Up! In The Moment Thank You Card

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends and welcome to the weekend. Does anyone have any fun plans? I’ll be working all day today, but I do have off tomorrow. Thursday was my first day out working all day and I was exhausted through Friday. I’m hoping the same doesn’t happen again. I was told it might take at least a month before I feel more like myself. I’m really hoping it doesn’t take that long.

Today’s card has lots of layers. I love cards with layers, the only problem with them is it’s always more postage to mail them. I also wanted to play with the 2022-2024 In-colors. I haven’t used them in a while, and I thought it was time. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! In The Moments 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! In The Moment Cling Stamp Set the Stampin’ Up! Very Best Occasions Cling Stamp Set along with the 2022-2024 6 X 6 In-Color Designer Series Paper for my card today.

Stampin' Up! In The Moments 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by adhering the 4 panels of 2022-2024 In-Color DSP to a Basic White panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the layered panel to a Parakeet Party mat. I adhered the layered panel to a Starry Sky card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! In The Moments 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the image from the In The Moment stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image using my Crumb Cake, Ivory, Parakeet Party, Soft Suede, Starry Sky and Sweet Sorbet Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image out using my Stylish Shapes Dies. I adhered the artwork to a Starry Sky mat. I adhered the layered panel to a Parakeet Party mat. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! In The Moments 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Very Best Occasions stamp set in Starry Sky Ink. I cut the sentiment out using my Stylish Shapes Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few 2022-2024 In-Color Matte Decorative Dots to the card front.

Stampin' Up! In The Moments 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Very Best Occasions stamp set in Starry Sky Ink on a panel of Basic White. I adhered a strip of the 2022-2024 In-Color DSP to the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Parakeet Party mat then to the inside of the Starry Sky card base.

Stampin' Up! In The Moments 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of the 2022-2024 In-Color DSP to the envelope front and a panel to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Fresh Cut Flowers CAS Thinking of You

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends. How has everyone’s week started off? Tonight, is my Stamp Camp Card Class. I look forward to this every month with getting together with the ladies. We have 2 new ladies joining us tonight and I’m looking forward to meeting them and learning their style of stamping.

Today’s CAS card is one that we will be making tonight. I’m trying to keep it fairly simple tonight since I have 6 ladies coming and don’t know what level they are all at. Everyone will be making this card, but they will color the flowers in whatever color they would like to. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Fresh Cut Flowers Cling Stamp Set along with the Stampin’ Up! Go To Greetings Cling Stamp Set and the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Moments Cling Stamp Set for my card today.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the large flower image from the Fresh Cut Flowers stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image using my Daffodil Delight, Orchid Oasis, Soft Succulent and Sweet Sorbet Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I stamped the sentiment from the Go To Greetings stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the top of the panel.

I embossed the panel using the Into The Clouds Embossing Folder. I adhered the embossed panel to a Orchid Oasis card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Peaceful Moments stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the smaller floral image from the Fresh Cut Flowers stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom of the panel. I colored the image using my Daffodil Delight, Orchid Oasis, Soft Succulent and Sweet Sorbet Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to an Orchid Oasis mat and then to the inside of the Orchid Oasis card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the floral image from the Fresh Cut Flowers stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I colored the image using my Daffodil Delight, Orchid Oasis, Soft Succulent and Sweet Sorbet Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of 2022-2024 6 X 6 In-Color Designer Series Paper to the envelope flap.

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

Stampin’ Up! Bouquet of Thanks for Fun Fold Friday with Video Tutorial

Good Friday morning my stamping friends welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How are you all doing today? Are you ready for the weekend? I hope you are making some fun plans. It’s supposed to be a hot one here, last I heard was the upper 90’s.

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! Bouquet of Thanks Cling Stamp Set along with the Stampin’ Up! Charming Sentiments Photopolymer Stamp Set and the 2022-2024 In-Color 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my easel card today.

I started by adhering a panel of the 2022-2024 In-Color DSP to a Sweet Sorbet mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I scored & folded the Crumb Cake card base as listed below. I adhered the smaller panel of Sweet Sorbet cardstock to the top section of the card base front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the layered panel to the bottom section of the card base front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped the floral image from the Bouquet of Thanks stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on a panel of Crumb Cake cardstock. I stamped the sentiment banner from the floral image on a panel of Shimmery White cardstock in Soft Suede Ink. I fussy cut the banner using my Paper Snips. I adhered the fussy cut banner to the stamped panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the artwork to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small panel of Shimmer White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Charming Sentiments stamp set in Soft Suede Ink. I adhered the sentiment to a Sweet Sorbet mat using Stampin’ Seal.

On the inside I stamped the top of the floral image from the Bouquet of Thanks stamp set in Soft Suede Ink, stamping off twice on scrap paper, on the side of the Shimmery White panel. I adhered the Shimmery White panel to a Sweet Sorbet mat and then to the inside of the Crumb Cake card base. I figured out where I wanted to put the small sentiment and adhered it using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the flowers from the Bouquet of Thanks stamp set on the envelope front in Soft Suede Ink. I adhered a panel of the 2022-2024 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. I hope you will CASE this card and please feel free to post it in the comments of my Facebook page under my 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!!

Stampin’ Up! Art Gallery for The Card Concepts Challenge

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. We’re halfway through the week already and on our way to the weekend. It’s supposed to be a beautiful spring day here in NJ. We’ll have to see what happens 😉

It’s time for another inspiration challenge for The Card Concepts. The inspiration photo is Vintage Style. Here is my card that was inspired from the challenge photo.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Art Gallery Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the 2022-2024 In-Color 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper (available May 3) and the Brushstroke Specialty Paper (available May 3) for my Clean and Layered card. I was inspired by the flowers on the pillow and the colors from the photo.

I hope you will take a moment to visit The Card Concepts and join us for our challenge #173.  How are you inspired by this photo?

I started by embossing a Soft Suede card front using the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered a panel of the new 2022-2024 In-Color DSP to the card front. I adhered the card front to a Soft Suede card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered a panel of the new Brushstroke Specialty Paper to a Soft Suede mat and then to the card front. On a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock, I stamped the stem image from the Art Gallery stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink. I stamped the solid flower image from the Art Gallery stamp set in Blushing Bride Ink on the stem. I stamped the detailed flower image from the Art Gallery stamp set in Sweet Sorbet Ink over the solid image. I cut the panel using the largest circle from the new Stylish Shapes Dies (available May 3) and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the panel of Very Vanilla cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Art Gallery stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink and cut it out using the Stylish Shapes Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I tied a double bow using the Very Vanilla Bakers Twine from the Baker’s Twine Essential Pack and adhered it to the stem using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Celebrating You Cling Stamp Set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on a Very Vanilla panel. I stamped the smaller flower image from the Art Gallery stamp set in Blushing Bride Ink above and below the sentiment. I tore the edges of the panel and sponged them with some Soft Suede Ink. I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Blushing Bride mat and then to the inside of the Soft Suede card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Very Vanilla Medium Envelope. I stamped the flower image from the Art Gallery stamp set on the envelope front the same as I did for the card front. I adhered a panel of the 2022-2024 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. Some of the products used for my card today won’t be available until May 3 from the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog. Happy Stamping!!
