Stampin’ Up! All For Baby

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. Have you started shopping the new July-December 2021 Mini Catalog and earned some FREE Sale-a-bration items yet? What are you waiting for? Shop now through Monday August 9th and earn my Double Creative Stamping Designs Rewards. I got my order in first thing yesterday morning, YAY!!! I should have my goodies by tomorrow and can’t wait to start playing with them all.

Today’s card is another one we made at my class last night. I had a couple of the ladies request a baby card. A couple wanted baby boy cards and others wanted gender neutral. Here’s the card we made.

I used the Stampin’ Up! All For Baby Bundle for my cute card today.

I started by using my Blending Brush and added Pool Party Ink to a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the clothesline image from the Stampin’ Up! All For Baby Photopolymer Stamp Set in Gray Granite Ink on the inked panel. I cut the top of the panel using my Basic Borders Dies. I adhered the card front to a Thick Basic White card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the romper outfit from the All For Baby stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink and the teddy bear image from the All For Baby stamp set in Gray Granite Ink. I cut the stamped images out using my Baby Clothes Dies. Using my Baby Clothes Dies I cut 2 of the hangers from a panel of Basic White cardstock, 4 of the clothespins from a panel of Crumb Cake cardstock, the onesie outfit from a panel of Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper and the bib from a panel of Pattern Party Hose Designer Series Paper.

I stamped the sentiment from the All For Baby stamp set in Gray Granite Ink on the top of the inked panel. I adhered the outfits to the hangers using Stampin’ Seal and the clothespins to the die cut images using a tiny amount of Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the die cut images to the clothesline using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the All For Baby stamp set in Gray Granite Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the teddy bear image from the All For Baby stamp set in Gray Granite Ink on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Pool Party mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Thick Basic White card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the bear image from the All For Baby stamp set in Gray Granite Ink on the envelope front. I stamped the little striped romper outfit from the All For Baby stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of Pattern Party Host 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! Sweet As A Peach for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? It’s been crazy here this week with the weather, hot, cool, smoldering, stormy then cool again. It’s supposed to drop to the 50’s this weekend. Dose anyone have any plans? I’ll be working all day tomorrow and since the last day of the month is Monday, Memorial Day and the store is closed, I have to go into the office to work on Sunday.

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! Sweet As A Peach Bundle along with the You’re A Peach Designer Series Paper for my card.

I started by cutting the outside edge of the card base using the Basic Borders Dies. I cut a panel of Ombre Specialty Paper using the same Basic Borders Dies and adhered it to the front or the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Using the Scalloped Contours Dies I cut a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the stem/leaves image from the Stampin’ Up! Sweet As A Peach Photopolymer Stamp Set in Granny Apple Green Ink. I stamped the small peach image from the Sweet As A Peach stamp set in Petal Pink Ink on the stems. I stamped the small peach image again on a small panel of Basic White cardstock and cut them out using the Peach Dies. I stamped the sentiments from the Sweet As A Peach stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink on the bottom of the scalloped panel. I adhered one of the cut peaches to the stem using a Glue Dot and the other 2 using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered the scalloped frame to the front of the card base on top of the Ombre Specialty Paper using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Blue Adhesive-Backed Gems to the card front.

On the inside I adhered a panel of You’re A Peach DSP to the inside of the Petal Pink card base using Stampin’ Seal. On a small panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the larger peach image from, the Sweet As A Peach stamp set in Petal Pink Ink. I stamped the stem/leaves on the peach in Granny Apple Green Ink. I stamped the sentiment from the Sweet As A Peach stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink on the Basic White panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to the inside of the Petal Pink card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the large peach image from the Sweet As A Peach stamp set twice on the envelope front in Petal Pink Ink. I stamped the stem/leaves image in Granny Apple Green Ink. I adhered a panel of You’re A Peach 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 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.

Stampin’ Up! Prince and Princess for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends! Welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. I hope everyone is doing well today. If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we have a Theme Challenge. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s amazing projects. Here is my card using this weeks theme.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Prince & Princess Photopolymer Host Stamp Set for my card today along with the new Basic Borders Dies.

Our theme is Things With Wings. Swans have wings, right?

I started by embossing a panel of Pool Party cardstock using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the swan image from the Prince & Princess host stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the beak using my Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends Markers and added a little color to the feathers using my Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the water image below the swan in Pool Party Ink. I stamped the leaf image from the Prince & Princess stamp set in Just Jade Ink on either side of the swan image and colored them in using my Just Jade Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the cattails image on the leaves in Soft Suede Ink and colored them in using my Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers.

Using my new Basic Borders Dies, I cut the Basic White panel on an angle using the cloud looking die. I adhered the artwork to the embossed panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Prince & Princess stamp set in Just Jade Ink and adhered it to a strip of Just Jade cardstock using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the sentiment stamp set to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front. I adhered the card front to a Pool Party card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Prince & Princess stamp set in the center of a Basic White panel in Just Jade Ink. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Dressed To Impress Photopolymer Stamp Set below the sentiment in Just Jade Ink. I stamped the leaf image from the Prince & Princess stamp set in Just Jade Ink on the bottom of the panel and colored it using my Just Jade Stampin’ Blends Markers. I added the cattails to the leaf image stamping them in Soft Suede Ink and coloring them with my Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Pool Party mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Pool Party card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the swan image from the Prince & Princess stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I stamped the water image below the swan in Pool Party Ink. I colored the beak using my Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends Markers and added a little color to the swans feathers using my Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped and colored the envelope flap using the leaf and cattails images from the Prince & Princess stamp set.

Stampin’ Up! Party Puffins Pop-Up for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Does anyone have any plans for the weekend?

Before I get started I just wanted to remind you that my 2021-2022 Annual Catalogs have arrived. If you are a customer of mine, I have sent one out to you and you should be receiving it very soon. If you’d like a copy of the catalog, send me a note at creativestampingdesigns@gmail.com and I will get one in the mail to you. Also, I am offering a Designer Series Paper share from the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog. If you are interested or want to know what a product share is, click HERE.

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! Party Puffins Cling Stamp Set from the upcoming 2021-2022 Annual Catalog along with the Ice Cream Corner Designer Series Paper from the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog.

I started by placing a panel of Ice Cream Corner DSP on the front of a Blackberry Bliss card base lining up the bottom and sides with a slight border, and cutting it using my Basic Border Dies. I adhered the Ice Cream Corner DSP to the Blackberry Bliss card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped one of the puffin images from the Party Puffins stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White circle I cut using my Layering Circle Dies and colored the image in using my Bermuda Bay, Pool Party, Pumpkin Pie and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment from the Party Puffins stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a strip of Basic White cardstock and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Artistry Blooms Adhesive-Backed Sequins to the card front.

I adhered a panel of Ice Cream Corner DSP to the bottom inside of the Blackberry Bliss card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I stamped the sentiment on a panel of Basic White cardstock and adhered it above the DSP panel using Stampin’ Seal.

I took a small panel of Blackberry Bliss cardstock and scored it at 1″, 2″ & 3″. I folded on the score lines. I folded the panel in half and adhered Stampin’ Seal to the edge of the folded panel and adhered it to the top center of the Basic White panel. Keeping the panel folded in half, I added some Stampin’ Seal to the top edge of the small panel and folded the top of the card base down on it to make my little pop-up. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the puffin, birthday cake and fish images from the Party Puffins stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the images in using my Bermuda Bay, Blackberry Bliss, Petal Pink, Pool Party, Pumpkin Pie and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers. I fussy cut the images and adhered them to the pop-up using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped one of the puffins from the Party Puffins stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the Ice Cream Corner 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 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. Products I used for my card today will be available on May 4th. Happy Stamping!!

Step up to the plate, take a swing, and knock it out of the park! With the Batter Up! Paper Pumpkin Kit, it’s your turn to go to bat for all the people who’ve gone to bat for you. This month’s timeless kit with a “throwback” theme contains enough grand slam supplies to create nine cards—and coordinating envelopes—featuring classic colors, pinwheel and pinstripe patterns, and vintage-washed paper pieces. There’s no “batter” way to root, root, root for your home team and honor the all-stars in your life!

A beloved baseball-themed kit would be incomplete without the sport’s signature, sticky snack—the official bubble gum of the MLB! A favorite in the field, the Batter Up! Paper Pumpkin Kit contains a couple sticks of the chewy staple; chew while you craft, slide a piece into a card, or save it for later.

Send a seventh-inning stretch in a classic card with all-star stripes, a nostalgic nod, and a stamp set fit for an MVP! But, before you give it all you’ve got, give this month’s promotional video a watch. See what the Batter Up! kit is all about! Play ball!
