Stampin’ Up! Dressed To Impress CAS

Good Saturday morning mu stamping friends.  How is your weekend going so far?  I have to work for a couple hours this morning.  We’re taking shifts so that no one is exposed for too long a time to the public.  They have set up what looks like an Ice Hockey penalty box for us and have marked the floor where customers have to stand to wait to be checked out.  Our owner/manager is doing everything to protect us and stay open at the same time.

I have a quick and easy CAS card for you today using the Stampin’ Up! Dressed To Impress Bundle.   Here’s today’s card.

My sketch is from Inspire.Create. Challenge #065.  Here is their sketch.

My colors were inspired by Color Throwdown Challenge #586.  Here are their colors.

I started by adhering a panel of the Best Dressed 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Gorgeous Grape card base using Snail.  I adhered a strip of the Best Dressed 6 X 6 DSP to a Gorgeous Grape mat using Snail and then to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a thin strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Dressed To Impress Photopolymer Stamp Set in Gorgeous Grape Ink.  Using my Banner Triple Punch I made a banner out of the strip and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the lipstick image from the Dressed To Impress stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the image in using my Dark Lovely Lipstick, Dark Petal Pink and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I added some Clear Wink of Stella to give it a little shimmer.  I cut the image out using my All Dressed Up Dies and adhered the image to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and a Glue Dot.  I added a few Gorgeous Grape Glitter Enamel Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Strong & Beautiful Cling Stamp Set in Gorgeous Grape Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the lipstick image from the Dressed To Impress stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the bottom of the panel and colored it in using my Dark Lovely Lipstick, Dark Petal Pink and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the panel to the inside of the Gorgeous Grape card base using Snail.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the lipstick image from the Dressed To Impress stamp set on the bottom of the envelope front.  I colored the images in using my Dark Lovely Lipstick, Dark Petal Pink and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of the Best Dressed 6 X 6 DSP 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! Best Dressed To Impress Birthday

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  How has everyone’s week started off?  I was informed yesterday that the doors to the store will be locked to the public for a couple weeks.  Even though I don’t deal with the public daily, the work I do does.  So, I’ve got extra time on my hands to craft for a bit, do my spring cleaning and get things done that I’ve put off doing.  I hope everyone is staying healthy, staying home and crafting a lot!!

For today’s card I used a new to me bundle, the Stampin’ Up! Dressed To Impress Bundle.  When I first saw this one, I thought I’d never use it.  Once I got it, I LOVE it.  I can’t wait to play with all the other images.  Did you ever make a card and as you are creating it you just know exactly who it will be for?  That was today’s card.  I didn’t start off making it for anyone in mind, but as I was creating I just know who I want to send this one to.  I just have to wait for her birthday to get here.  Here’s my card for today.

My design was from Just Add Ink Challenge #497.  Here’s their sketch.

I also joined in with TGIF Challenge #256.  They have a Suite Inspiration Challenge.  Here’s their challenge.

I started by adhering a panel of the Best Dressed Designer Series Paper to a Blackberry Bliss mat using Snail. I then adhered it to a Purple Posy card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut a square panel of Whisper White cardstock using my Stitched Shapes Dies.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Dressed To Impress Photopolymer Stamp Set in Blackberry Bliss Ink on the top of the panel.  I stamped the watercolor image from the Dressed To Impress stamp set in Blackberry Bliss Ink, stamping off once, below the sentiment.  I adhered the panel to a Blackberry Bliss mat using Snail.  On a scrap panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped 2 of the shoe image from the Dressed To Impress stamp set in Basic Gray Ink.  I colored the shoes in using my Purple Posy Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the images out using my All Dressed Up Dies and brushed them with my Clear Wink of Stella to give them a little glimmer.  I adhered the shoes to the stitched square Whisper White panel using Glue Dots and Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Using my Stitched Rectangle Dies I cut a panel of the Best Dressed DSP and a small panel of Purple Posy cardstock.  I embossed the Purple Posy rectangle using my Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to a Blackberry Bliss mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the Best Dressed DSP rectangle to a Blackberry Bliss mat using Snail.

I started at the bottom and adhered the matted DSP first to the card front using Snail.  I then adhered the embossed panel using Glue Dots on top of the DSP panel.  Last I adhered the artwork to the top using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels, which I colored using my Dark Blackberry Bliss Stampin’ Blends Marker, to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Dressed To Impress stamp set in Blackberry Bliss Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Moments Cling Stamp Set in Blackberry Bliss Ink below the 1st sentiment.  I stamped another one of the watercolor images from the Dressed To Impress stamp set in Blackberry Bliss Ink, stamping off once, over the sentiments.  I stamped the shoe image from the Dressed To Impress stamp set twice on the bottom of the panel in Basic Gray Ink and colored them in using my Purple Pose Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I added  some Clear Wink of Stella to the shoes for some glimmer.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Blackberry Bliss 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 shoe image from the Dressed To Impress stamp set in Basic Gray Ink on the bottom of the envelope front twice and colored them in using my Purple Posy Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I added a little Clear Wink of Stella for some glimmer.  I adhered a panel of Best Dressed 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!!
