Stampin’ Up! Birds and Branches Hello Baby

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  How has everyone’s week started off?  Can you believe June is over already and we have a holiday weekend coming up soon.  These months are a blur to me this year.

I have another baby card for you today using the Birds & Branches Bundle.  This one is for my aunt and uncle for their new Great Grandson.  I made a male and female bird for today’s card.  Did you ever wonder why the male bird is so much more vibrant than the female.  Something is definitely wrong with that.   Here’s my card for today.

Today’s card played along with Fusion Challenge – Relaxed Living.  Here is their inspiration and sketch.

I started by stamping a Balmy Blue card front using the Stampin’ Up! Buffalo Check Cling Stamp in Pacific Point Ink.  I adhered the card front to a Balmy Blue mat using Stampin’ Seal.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the nest image from the Stampin’ Up! Birds & Branches Photopolymer Stamp Set in Crumb Cake Ink.  I stamped the birds eggs image from the Birds & Branches stamp set in Balmy Blue Ink.  I stamped step 1 of one of the bird images from the Birds & Branches stamp set in Daffodil Delight Ink and step 2 of the bird image in Gray Granite Ink.  I cut all the images out using my Birds & More Dies.  On a small panel of Daffodil Delight cardstock I stamped the step 2 image of the bird facing the opposite way in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and cut the image out using my Birds & More Dies.  On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the large and small branch images from the Birds & Branches stamp set in Soft Suede Ink.  I stamped the leaf image from the Birds & Branches stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink.

I cut the Whisper White panel into a banner using my Banner Triple Punch.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! So Sentimental Cling Stamp Set in Balmy Blue Ink on the end of the banner.  I adhered the birds nest to the banner using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the eggs inside the nest using Glue Dots.  I adhered the birds on the nest using Glue Dots.  I adhered the banner to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the card front to a Whisper White card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Moments Cling Stamp Set in Balmy Blue Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the 2 branch images from the Birds & Branches stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the side of the panel.  I stamped the leaf image from the Birds & Branches stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink on the branches.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Balmy Blue mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the 2 branch images from the Birds & Branches stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped the leaf image from the Birds & Branches stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink on the branches.  I stamped the envelope flap using the Buffalo Check stamp in Balmy Blue Ink.

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

Stampin’ Up! A Good Man Father’s Day

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends and Happy Father’s Day!!  How is everyone’s weekend going?  By the time you read this, my daughter and I will be elbow deep in cooking brunch for my husband.  Little does he know he’s got another surprise coming to him this morning.  I bought him an outside pizza oven for Father’s Day and he’s making his own dinner, LOL.  He loves making home made pizza and he usually makes it on our grill.  I thought I would treat him to a wood burning pizza oven and I’m sure he will be loving it.  He makes his own dough and all.  I told all my cashiers once he tries it I will have them all over for him to cook for them and there’s enough room to social distance in my backyard.

Since it’s Father’s Day I thought it was only appropriate to make a Father’s Day card.  My daughter needed one, so here’s what I made for her to give.  I don’t know about you, but I am loving the 2020-2022 In-Colors, so that’s what I used today.

My design is from Try Stamping on Tuesday Challenge #462.  Here is their sketch.

I played along with Fab Friday Color Challenge #192 since I had used all the 2020-2022 In-Colors.  Here are their colors.

I started by adhering a panel of Cinnamon Cider 2020-2022 In-Color 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Cinnamon Cider card base using Stampin’ Seal.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the father/daughter image from the Stampin’ Up! A Good Man Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the image in using my Cinnamon Cider, Ivory, Just Jade, Magenta Madness and Misty Moonlight Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the artwork to a Just Jade mat using Stampin’ Seal.

I embossed a Bumble Bee panel using the Tasteful Textiles 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the matted artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.   On a strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! By The Dock Cling Stamp Set in Cinnamon Cider Ink.  I cut the sentiment into a banner using the Banner Triple Punch and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a piece of Misty Moonlight 1/4″ Ribbon, that I tied into a knot, to the sentiment using a Glue Dot.  I added a few Just Jade 2020-2022 In-Color Enamel Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from A Good Man stamp set in Cinnamon Cider Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Best Year Cling Stamp Set in Cinnamon Cider Ink below the 1st one.  I stamped the father/daughter image from A Good Man stamp set in Cinnamon Cider Ink, stamping off twice, over the sentiments.  I adhered a strip of the 2020-2022 In-Color 6 X 6 DSP to the bottom of the panel using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Just Jade mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Cinnamon Cider card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the father/daughter image from A Good Man stamp set in Cinnamon Cider Ink on the envelope front and colored it in using my Cinnamon Cider, Ivory, Just Jade, Magenta Madness and Misty Moonlight Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of the 2020-2022 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. I hope you all enjoy the rest of the weekend and are able to spend some time with friends and family or just enjoy a relaxing day. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! By The Dock for Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. How is everyone doing today? Hope you are all staying heathly and safe. If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by my blog. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects today. This week we had a Color Challenge, here are the colors we got to work with.

Here’s what I came up with for these colors.

My design is from Global Design Projects Sketch Challenge #234.  Here is their sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper to a Soft Suede card base using Snail.

On a Whisper White cardstock panel I stamped the shoreline and bird images from the Stampin’ Up! By The Dock Cling Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink.  I cut the image out using the 2nd largest circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I stamped the boat and oars images from the By The Dock stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the Whisper White panel.  I colored the images in using my Dark Real Red and Light Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the frog image from the By The Dock stamp set in Old Olive Ink and colored it in using my Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the images out using the Dockside Dies.  From a small panel of Old Olive cardstock I cut the shoreline from the Dockside Dies out.  I cut the die cut in half using my Paper Snips.  I cut a banner using my Banner Triple Punch from a small panel of Real Red cardstock.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Birthday’s Cling Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink on the bottom of the banner.  I embossed the banner using my Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder.

I adhered the banner to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the boat, oars and frog to the stitched circle using Stampin’ Dimensionals and Glue Dots.  I adhered the artwork to the banner using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the shoreline die behind the artwork using Glue Dots.  I stamped a couple more of the birds from the By The Dock stamp set on the card front in Soft Suede Ink.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tropical Cling Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the boat image from the By The Dock stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the bottom of the panel and colored it in using my Dark Real Red and Light Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the bird image from the By The Dock stamp set 3 times above the sentiment in Soft Suede Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Real Red mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Soft Suede card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the boat and frog images from the By The Dock stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the bottom of the envelope front.  I colored the images in using my Old Olive, Dark Real Red and Light Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the bird image from the By The Dock stamp set in Soft Suede Ink, 3 times in the center of the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of the Tropical Oasis DSP to the envelope flap.

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!!

APRIL 2020 PAPER PUMPKIN:  MY WONDERFUL FAMILY

SUBSCRIBE MARCH 11-APRIL 10

At Paper Pumpkin, we believe in making a difference—especially when it comes to helping you build relationships through papercrafting. For April, we created a fun, family appreciation themed card kit that would make it easy for you to share your hearts with those you love most: mom, dad, daughter, son, sister, and brother.

One more thing about this “fam-tastic” kit: The Paper Pumpkin team knows that everyone’s clan is unique. With that in mind, we provided sentiments that would include anyone in your life who feels like family; for instance, “brothers” and “sisters” who have helped you along the journey of life.

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! Easter Promise for Happy Inkin Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. How is everyone doing today? If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects today. This week we had a Color Challenge, here are the colors we got to work with.

Here’s what I came up with for these colors.

I started by stamping the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Easter Promise Cling Stamp Set in Versamark Ink on the bottom right of a panel of Lily Impressions Designer Series Paper (which is a Sale-A-Bration item).  I immediately sprinkled it with my Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I adhered the Lily Impressions DSP to a Basic Black mat using Snail and then to a Lovely Lipstick card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut 2 strips of cardstock, one in Bermuda Bay and the other in Granny Apple Green, into banners using the Banner Triple Punch.  I adhered the banners to the left side of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock, I stamped the large flower image from the Easter Promise stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the image in using my Granny Apple Green and Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the image out using the 2nd largest square from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  Using the Layering Squares Dies, I cut the scallop square that was slightly larger that the stitched square in Basic Black cardstock.  I adhered the artwork to the Basic Black scalloped mat using Snail and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Granny Apple Green Glitter Enamel Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Easter Promise stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the small flower image from the Easter Promise stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the bottom of the panel.  I colored the image in using my Granny Apple Green and Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Basic Black mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Lovely Lipstick card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the large flower image from the Easter Promise stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the front of the envelope.  I colored the image in using my Granny Apple Green and Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of the Lily Impressions DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Purple Painted Poppies

Good Monday morning my stamping friends.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Did anyone do anything fun?  We spent Saturday at Hollywood Studios again and Sunday we went to Animal Kingdom.  Today we are heading to Magic Kingdom once again and will be leaving for home late tonight.  My husband booked an early morning flight coming so that we would get a full day in and a late night flight leaving so we would get another full day in.  I have gone on more rides this past week than I’ve gone on my entire life.  I don’t normally go on rides, but we were all having such a great time, I figured why not.  Like my niece told me “You only live once”.   I’m gong to need a vacation after this.  We will be arriving home early tomorrow morning (2am early) and 3 of the 4 of us have gotten sick.  I know where we’ll be heading tomorrow 😦  I don’t know about you, but the last place I want to be when I’m sick is on a plane.

I have a Clean and Simple card for you today,  Here’s my card.

I started by adhering a panel of the Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper to a Blackberry Bliss mat using Snail.  I just love the color variations in this paper.  I adhered the matted DSP to a Blackberry Bliss card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the small poppy image from the Stampin’ Up! Painted Poppies Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the image in using my Blackberry Bliss, Purple Posy and Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the dragonfly image from the Stampin’ Up! Friend Like You Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink above the poppies.  I cut the image out using the 2nd largest circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies.

I cut a strip of Purple Posy cardstock using the Banner Triple Punch. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips Cling Stamp Set in Blackberry Bliss Ink on the bottom of the banner.  I adhered the banner to the card front using Snail.  I adhered the artwork to the top of the banner using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a Purple Posy 2019-2021 In-Color Faceted Dot to the artwork.  I tied a small bow using the Blackberry Bliss Nature’s Twine and adhered it to the card front using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Blackberry Bliss Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the stemmed flower image from the Painted Poppies stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink to the left side of the panel.  I colored the image in using my Old Olive and Purple Posy Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Purple Posy mat using Snail and then 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 small poppy image from the Painted Poppies stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink 3 times across the bottom of the envelope front.  I colored the image in using my Blackberry Bliss, Purple Posy and Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of the Peaceful Poppies 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! Wrapped in Plaid Winter Woods

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  Happy half way through  the work week day!!  Hope everyone’s week is moving right along.  Other than my surgery getting delayed for 3 hours yesterday, everything went well.  I got to be awake for the whole thing and was able to ask the doctor questions as he was performing the surgery.    The first hand wasn’t too bad, but by the time he started the second the numbness was wearing off.  He did numb it up again though.  Having a bit of trouble using my finger now, but I’ll figure out how and keep moving right along.

For today’s card I used a stamp set from the Annual Catalog which I absolutely love.    Here’s my card.

My colors were inspired by CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge #350.  Here are their colors.

I started by adhering a panel of Wrapped In Plaid Specialty Designer Series Paper to a Shaded Spruce card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the tree image from the Stampin’ Up Winter Woods Cling Stamp Set in Shaded Spruce Ink.  I cut the image out using the largest Stitched Nested Labels Dies and cut the top section off.  I adhered the artwork to the top of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I needed a star for the top of the tree, so I grabbed the Stitched Stars Dies and cut a small star out of a scrap of Gold Foil Sheet.  I adhered the star to the top of the tree using a Glue dot.  I added Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels all over the tree.

On a strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Winter Woods stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink.  I made a banner out of the strip using my Banner Triple Punch.  I adhered a small strip of a Gold Foil Sheet to the bottom of the banner using Snail and adhered it to the bottom of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I tied a small bow from the Shaded Spruce/Gold 3/8″ Striped Ribbon and adhered it to the end of the banner using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Merry Christmas To All Photopolymer Stamp Set in Shaded Spruce Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the pine bough image from the Winter Woods stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink on either side of the sentiment.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Shaded Spruce card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the tree image from the Winter Woods stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink on the envelope front. I stamped one in full strength and another stamped off.  I adhered a panel of the Wrapped In Plaid Specialty 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 Beauty and Joy Birthday Card

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  How has your week started off?  We have had beautiful weather here.  I hate going into work when it’s this nice.

Today’s card is another one that we made at my last Stamp Camp.  I just wasn’t ready to make any fall cards, but I wanted to share one of my new stamp sets with the ladies.  Here’s my card.

I started by adhering a panel of the Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper on a Smoky Slate mat using Snail.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the flower pot image from the  Stampin’ Up Beauty & Joy Photopolymer Stamp Set (available Sept 4th)in Smoky Slate Ink.  I stamped the tree trunk image from the Beauty & Joy stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink above the flower pot.  I stamped the leaves from the Beauty & Joy stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on the tree trunk.  I randomly stamped the tiny flower image from the Beauty & Joy stamp set in Rococo Rose Ink  on the leaves.

Using my Banner Triple Punch, I punched the bottom of the cardstock to make a banner.  I adhered the banner to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I wrapped a piece of Linen Thread around the top of the card front twice and tied a bow.  I adhered the card front to a Merry Merlot card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Beauty & Joy stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the tiny flower image from the Beauty & Joy stamp set in Rococo Rose Ink around the sentiment.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pear Pizzazz mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Merry Merlot card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the flower pot with tree images from the Beauty & Joy stamp set on the envelope front the same way that I did on the card front.  I adhered a panel of the Pressed Petals Specialty 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.  The stamp set I used will be available for purchase September 4th.                        Happy Stamping!!

BONE APPETIT PAPER PUMPKIN

SUBSCRIBE TO PAPER PUMPKIN BY SEPTEMBER 10TH TO GET IN ON THE FUN

Halloween is nearly here, which means that Paper Pumpkin has been busy, busy, busy. We thought you might like “a hand” with their frightful festivities, so we designed September’s kit, Bone Appétit, with them in mind.

This kit includes 20 food-safe treat boxes, a unique and exclusive Halloween stamp set, and a spooky, special-edition box. September’s kit also gives new meaning to the word “handmade.” (Cue the scary laughter!)
