Stampin’ Up! Pansy Patch Birthday

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends. How has everyone’s week started off. I hope you are having a productive one. Today is not going to go as planned. I can’t work on my garden like I wanted to. Looks like I might be putting it off to the fall when some of the bugs go away. I got eaten up so bad on Saturday when I was only out there for a couple hours, my legs look like someone tortured me with pins. I was going to spray my lawn and garden, but it’s harmful to my fur baby.

Today I have a quick card for you showcasing another one of the DSP’s that’s on sale. I let the DSP do all the work and there’s very little stamping today. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Pansy Patch Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper for my card today.

My design is from the Paper Craft Crew Challenge #435.

I started by adhering a panel of Pansy Petals DSP to a Soft Sea Foam card based using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered another panel of the Pansy Petals DSP to an Evening Evergreen mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to a Soft Sea Foam mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Soft Sea Foam cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Pansy Patch stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink. I cut the strip into a banner using my Banners Pick A Punch. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a Bumblebee Trinket using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Pansy Patch stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink on a Basic White panel. I adhered a panel of the Pansy Petals DSP to the bottom of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the Basic White panel to an Evening Evergreen mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Soft Sea Foam card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of the Pansy Petals DSP to the envelope front and a panel 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!!

July-December 2021 Mini Catalog Designer Series Paper

I’m offering a Designer Series Paper share from the Stampin’ Up! July-December 2021 Mini Catalog and I’d love to have you join!!  I’m placing my share order early on August 3 and I’m going to use the expedited shipping option so I should be able to have the shares cut, bundled and back out to you during the week of August 9.

How my shares work:  I order full packs of all of the Designer Series Papers listed below, I cut them into 6″ x 6″ pieces (or 6″ x 12″ pieces for double shares) and give you one panel of each design from each pack on the list.  I pack up the paper in a cellophane bag and mail it back out to you just as quickly as I can!  Shares give you a good working sample of all of the papers so that you can decide which ones to order in full packs!

Here are the Designer Series Paper Shares that I am offering from the new Mini Catalog!

New Designer Series Paper Share – $25.00 plus $5.00 for 1st Class Mail shipping

You will receive one 6×6 sheet of each design from the following new DSP packs (the number behind the name indicates how many 6×6 sheets of that paper pack you will receive):

  • Gingerbread & Peppermint 6″ x 6″ – 12
  • Painted Christmas – 6
  • Whimsy & Wonder Specialty – 6
  • Sweet Stockings – 6
  • Peaceful Place Specialty – 6
  • Blackberry Beauty Specialty – 6
  • Cute Halloween 6″ x 6″ – 8
  • Harvest Meadow – 6
  • Heartwarming Hugs – 6 (returning)

  • Cork Specialty Paper – 1 ***please note that Cork paper will be approximately 6″ x 6″ as the sizes of the original papers may vary slightly.

In all, you’ll receive 75 – 6” x 6” sheets of new designer or speciality paper!

Double DSP Share – $50 + $7.75 Shipping by Priority Mail – if you’d like double shares of the designer paper, that’s fine too.  I’ll cut the designer paper sheets into 6×12 so that you’ll be able to get 3 full A2 size card fronts from each sheet (except for the Gingerbread & Peppermint, Cute Halloween and Kraft 6″ × 6″, you’ll get double sheets of those since they’re already precut).

Anyone is welcome to join in my share (please note, I can only ship to addresses within the US).  If you’d like to join, either complete the form below or email the following information to creativestampingdesigns@gmail.com

  • Your first and last name

Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals for Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends and welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop.  Hope you are all doing well and staying healthy.  If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we have a color challenge. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects.
Here are our colors for this week.

Here’s my card using this weeks colors.

My sketch for my card is from Sunday Stamps Challenge #242. Here is their sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of Poinsettia Place Designer Series Paper to a Bumblebee mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to an Old Olive card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered a small panel of the Poinsettia Place DSP to an Old Olive mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut 2 of the poinsettias out from a panel of Poinsettia Place DSP using my Poinsettia Dies I adhered 1 to the small DSP panel using Glue Dots and the other overlapping the 1st one using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals Photopolymer Stamp Set in Garden Green Ink on a strip of Whisper White cardstock. I cut both ends of the strip using my Banners Pick A Punch. I adhered a piece of the 3/8″ Real Red Sheer Ribbon to the card front in a ‘Z’ pattern securing it with Glue Dots and adhered the sentiment over the top using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the branch/berry image from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock. I stamped the berry fill image from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Real Red Ink over the branch image. I cut the images out using the Poinsettia Dies and adhered them under the flower image using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I added a few Real Red Wonderful Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Garden Green Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel. I stamped the poinsettia image from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set on the bottom of the panel in Real Red Ink and colored it in using my Real Red Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the bough image from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Old Olive Ink around the flower. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Bumblebee mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Old Olive card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the poinsettia image from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Real Red Ink on the envelope front and colored it in using my Real Red Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the bough image from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Old Olive Ink around the flower.

I adhered a panel of the Poinsettia Place DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Dragonfly Garden Sneak Peek

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend? Are you ready for a new week? I’ve got another busy working week ahead.

I have a sneak peek for you today. Are you ready? I’ve told you about our OnStage events that we go to twice a year. Well this years is going to be a little different because of Covid. We’ll be attending it virtually. Since I was registered for OnStage I got to order a bundle that won’t be available until the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog. It’s called the Dandy Garden Project Collection. I ordered mine last week and got to play with it this weekend. Here’s my 1st card I made with it.

I’ll try to give you a few more sneak peeks this week.

I started by adhering a panel of the Dandy Garden 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper (available January 5, 2021) to a Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On a panel of Bumblebee cardstock I stamped the tiny dragonfly image from the Stampin’ Up Dragonfly Garden Cling Stamp Set in Bumblebee Ink multiple times.

I adhered the Bumblebee panel to a Blackberry Bliss mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered a Mossy Meadow panel to the center of the Bumblebee panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I embossed a small panel of Whisper White cardstock using my Dandelion 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to a Dandy Garden DSP mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered it to the top of the Mossy Meadow panel on an angle using Stampin’ Dimensionals. On a panel of Smoky Slate cardstock I stamped one of the dragonfly images from the
Dragonfly Garden stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink and cut the image out using my Dragonflies Punch. I brushed the wings of the dragonfly using Clear Wink of Stella and adhered it to the embossed panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the artwork to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink. I cut the strip into a banner using my Banner Pick A Punch and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a Ladybug Trinket to the banner using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel. I stamped the tiny dragonfly image from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set in Bumblebee Ink above and below the sentiment. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Bumblebee mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the tiny dragonfly image from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set in Bumblebee Ink across the bottom front of the envelope.

I adhered a panel of the Dandy Garden 6 X 6 DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card. All items used for today’s card will be available starting January 5, 2021 from the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog. I’ll try to have a few more sneak peeks for you in the next couple weeks. Happy Stamping!!
