Stampin’ Up Natures Beauty Sneak Peek

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Did anyone do anything fun or exciting?  It was a beautiful weekend here. I went for a couple walks on Sunday.  I took a walk into town in the morning and since it was still cool enough I was able to bring Jasmine for a walk.  I feel so bad not bringing her, but the pavement is just too hot for her paws.  She love walking into town, she always thinks we’re going to her store, the dog bakery.  She knows they always give her extra treats.  Unfortunately they weren’t open yet.  Then in the afternoon my family and I went over to Dukes Estate for a nice long walk.  We only walked about 3 miles this time compared to the 7 last time we went.  I can’t wait to go back there in the fall when all the leaves are changing, and it will be a little cooler then.

I have another sneak peek from the 2019 Holiday Catalog for you.  Here’s my card for you today.

I joined in with Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #400 with my card today.  Here is their sketch.

My colors were inspired by CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge #333.  Here are their colors.

I started by stamping the sentiment from Stampin’ Up A Little Lace Cling Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink on the bottom of an Old Olive card front. I embossed the card front using the Woodland Embossing Folder and added 3 Gold Metallic Pearls to the top.

I embossed a small panel of Grapefruit Grove card stock using the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder and then adhered it to a Cajun Craze mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the matted panel to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I wrapped a piece of the Old Olive/Pretty Peacock 3/8″ Reversible Ribbon around the card front and using Multipurpose Liquid Glue I adhered the card front to an Old Olive card base.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the tree image from the Stampin’ Up Natures Beauty Cling Stamp Set (available Sept 4) in Soft Suede Ink a couple of times.  Using my Stamping Sponges I sponged the Whisper White panel using my Grapefruit Grove Ink on the top and Old Olive Ink on the bottom.   Using the grass image from the Natures Beauty stamp set I stamped some grass around the bottom sponged area in Old Olive Ink.  I adhered the sponged panel to a Cajun Craze mat using Snail.  On a small piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the fox image from the Natures Beauty stamp set in Cajun Craze Ink and fussy cut the image out using my Paper Snips.  I adhered the fox to the sponged panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals and adhered the panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I cut a leaf out of Cajun Craze cardstock using the Gathered Leaves Dies (available Sept 4).  I adhered the leaf to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the fox image from the Natures Beauty stamp set in Cajun Craze Ink, stamping off once, on the bottom of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the tree image from the Natures Beauty stamp set in Soft Suede Ink, stamping off twice, 3 times across the middle of the Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up A Big Thank You Photopolymer Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink in the center of the Whisper White panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Cajun Craze mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Old Olive card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the fox image from the Natures Beauty stamp set in Cajun Craze Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped the tree images from the Natures Beauty stamp set in Soft Suede Ink, some full strength and some stamped off, across the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you like my card.  This set will be available for purchase on September 4th.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up A Little Lace Free As A Bird

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers.  Well the weekend is upon us, so hopefully some of you will have some time to relax and have fun.  I’m looking forward to getting together with some of my team members for a meeting and stamping time.

For today’s card I used another new bundle available NOW in the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.  It’s the Stampin’ Up A Little Lace Bundle.  This new die is so elegant.  Take a look.

My card for today played along with the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge #224.  Here’s their challenge.

I started with a panel of Whisper White cardstock and ran it through my die cutting machine using the Stitched Lace Die.  I ran it through again using the edging die from the Stitched Lace Die to cut off about an inch from the bottom.

On the bottom of the Crumb Cake card base I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up A Little Lace Cling Stamp Set in Versamark Ink.  I immediately sprinkled it with my White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I stamped the small flower image from the A Little Lace stamp set in Versamark Ink on the bottom left of the card front and immediately sprinkled it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.

I wanted to do a little of the White Wash Technique on the small flower, so using my Aqua Painter I colored the flower in with the Whisper White Pigment Ink and let it dry completely.  Once it dried, using my Blender Pen, I colored the flower in with Purple Posy Ink.  I stamped the single bird from the Stampin’ Up Free As A Bird Cling Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink on a small panel of Whisper White cardstock.  Using my Crumb Cake and Purple Posy Stampin’ Blends Markers, I colored the bird in.  I cut the bird out using the Stitched Nested Labels Dies. I adhered the lace panel to the Crumb Cake card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the artwork on the edge of the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Free As A Bird stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the edge image from the A Little Lace stamp set on either side of the Whisper White panel in Purple Posy Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Purple Posy mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Crumb Cake card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the small flower image from the A Little Lace stamp set in Purple Posy Ink along the bottom edge of the envelope front and on the envelope flap.  The flowers on the envelope flap I colored in using my Purple Posy Stampin’ Blends Markers.

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

Stampin’ Up Beautiful You, Strong and Beautiful Graduation Card

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  How is everyone doing today?

For today I used one of my all time favorite stamp sets for a graduation card for you.  My niece has graduated earning her Masters Degree and I wanted to send her a special card letting her know how proud I am of her.  I used a few items that will be retiring as of June 3rd for my card.  Take a look.

I’ve played along with a couple challenges today.  First off is the CAS(E) This Sketch challenge #322.  Here is their sketch.

Next I played along with the Paper Craft Crew challenge #337.  Here is their challenge.

I joined in with the Stampin’ Up Only Challenges #223.  Their challenge is ‘Anything Spring’. This includes spring holidays, birthdays, graduations, babies!

I also joined in with the CAS on Friday Challenge #158.  Their challenge is ‘Use Polkadots’.

I started by adhering a panel of the soon to retire Brights 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Basic Black card bae using Snail.  I stamped the dancing woman image from the Stampin’ Up Beautiful You Clear Stamp Set on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I colored her in using my Light Basic Black, Ivory and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the artwork to a panel of Whisper White cardstock to give it a little color on color edge using Snail.  I then adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I cut a tiny square to look like a graduation cap out of Basic Black cardstock.  I took a small piece of Whisper White Bakers Twine and pulled it apart to get very thin strands to make a tassel on the cap, tied it in a knot and adhered it using a Glue Dot. I adhered a Metallic Pearl in the center of the tassel.  I adhered the graduation cap to the top of the woman’s head using a Stampin’ Dimensional.

Using my Big Shot and the soon to retire Celebrate You Thinlits, I cut out the celebrate in Basic Black and Poppy Parade cardstocks.  I adhered the Basic Black on top or the Poppy Parade, so that it had the shadow look, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the sentiment to the top of the artwork using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and thin strips of Stampin’ Dimensionals on the 2 ends.

On the inside I stamped the flowers from the new Stampin’ Up A Little Lace Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in 3 of the corners of a Whisper White panel.  I colored them in using my Granny Apple Green and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends Markers and added a little Rhinestone Basic Jewel in each flower.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Strong & Beautiful Cling Stamp Set in the center of the Whisper White panel in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  Using my Big Shot I cut out the amazing and you from the Celebrate You Thinlits in Poppy Parade cardstock using a piece of the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet behind it.  The Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets are great when you have very thin images to be glued down and don’t want to take a chance of making a mess with other adhesives.  I adhered the 2 sentiments above the stamped sentiment on the Whisper White panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Basic Black card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the flowers from the A Little Lace stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front.  I colored them in using my Granny Apple Green and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a piece of the Brights 6 X 6 DSP to the envelope flap.  I had to use a different pattern of DSP on the flap.  For the 1st time in all the years I’ve been making cards, I ran out of a DSP.  This has never happen to me.  The DSP usually retires before I have a chance to use it up.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try.  The Stampin’ Up Beautiful You Stamp Set and the Stampin’ Up Strong & Beautiful Stamp Set will be carrying over into the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog, but the Celebrate You Thinlits and the Brights 6 X 6 DSP will be retiring as of June 3rd.  The Stampin’ Up A Little Lace Stamp Set will be available June 4th for purchase.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! has posted their retiring lists for the 2018-19 Annual Catalog and 2019 Occasions Catalog.  Head over to my online store to pick up those retiring items now!  They’re only available while supplies last from now through June 3!

A few notes about the lists:

  • Due to high demand for retiring stamp sets, these items will have guaranteed availability until May 24; all other products are not guaranteed and are available while supplies last only.
  • Order deadline to get the retiring products:  June 3, 2019; 11:50 PM (MT)

Please note, some of the bundle items may be carrying over into the new 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.  However, the bundle pricing will go away, so get them while you can at the discounted price!!

Stampin’ Up! Retirement List Clarification

It looks like every single stamp set from the 2018-19 Annual Catalog is being retired and that isn’t the case, the carryover sets are being transitioned to Cling Mount.

The stamp sets offered in clear-mount or wood-mount in the 2018–2019 annual catalog that are carrying over into the 2019–2020 annual catalog will be offered in clear-mount and/or wood-mount until existing inventory has been depleted or until June 4, 2019 (whichever comes first).

If the inventory is depleted, you will be notified of the automatic switch to cling when placing an order for that stamp set. This means that you may end up purchasing select cling stamp sets (in carryover artwork) before they can be ordered from the catalog!  All carryover rubber stamp sets will be available in cling medium only (with the exception of background stamps in North America) beginning June 4, 2019.
