Stampin’ Up Mosaic Mood Bloom and Grow Birthday

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  We’re halfway through the week already.  Yesterday was a vey exciting day, we got to register for OnStatge in November.  I can’t wait to go and meet up with my team members and see what’s new..

For today’s card I didn’t do any stamping, except for the inside.  I really put my fussy cutting to the test with this one.  This was also one of the cards we made at my Stamp Camp last night.  I had the ladies doing a lot of fussy cutting too.  Here’s my card.

I joined in today with Seize The Birthday Challenge #172.  Their Theme is Butterflies.

I also played along with Cardz 4 Galz Challenge #103. Their Theme is ‘WINGS’.

I played along with The Flower Challenge #35.  Here is their theme. My favorite flower is a rose.

I started out by fussy cutting a butterfly, humming bird and rose from the Mosaic Mood Specialty Designer Series Paper using my Paper Snips.   I cut the larges circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies in Terracotta Tile cardstock.  I adhered the fussy cut rose to the circle using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the stitched circle to a the panel of Mosaic Mood Specialty DSP using Multipurpose Liquid Glue hanging off the right edge a bit.  I cut the circle even with the DSP.  I adhered the DSP to a Terracotta Tile mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered the humming bird and butterfly to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals having them both touch the rose.

I cut the ‘birthday wishes’ sentiment out of Shimmery White cardstock using the Well Written Dies.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using my Fine Tip Glue Pen.  I adhered the card front to a Petal Pink card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Bloom & Grow Photopolymer Stamp Set in Terracotta Tile Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the rose image from the Bloom & Grow stamp set in Terracotta Tile Ink on the bottom of the panel and colored only part of it in using my Mint Macaron and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Petal Pink card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the rose image from the Bloom & Grow stamp set in Terracotta Tile Ink on the front corner of the envelope.  I adhered a piece of the Mosaic Mood 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 Bloom and Grow Quick and Easy Card

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  How is everyone doing today?  I got a sneak peek at the upcoming Holiday catalog yesterday.  I’m definitely in trouble.  One of the best benefits of being a demonstrator is that you get to see the catalogs early.  Right now is the perfect time to join.  You get to purchase $155.00 worth of Stampin’ Up supplies for only $99.00 AND you receive a $10.00 coupon code to use next month for an order.  See more details below.  If you are interested in joining, please contact me for more information.

For today’s card I have a Quick and Easy card for you.  I used just the basics for my card, Stamp, Ink and Paper.  Here’s my card.

I started with a Thick Whisper White card base and adhered a panel of Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Bloom & Grow Photopolymer Stamp Set in Pretty Peacock Ink.  I edged the strip using my Blackberry Bliss Stampin’ Write Marker.

I adhered the sentiment strip to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the floral image from the Bloom & Grow stamp set in Pretty Peacock, stamping off 3 times, in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the Bloom & Grow stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink over the floral image.  I adhered the Whisper White panel 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 floral image from the Bloom & Grow stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink on the envelope front stamping off once.  I adhered a panel of Perennial Essence DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my Quick & Easy card and will give it a try.

Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up Bloom and Grow Birthday Card

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  Hope you all had a wonderful weekend.  Did anyone do anything fun?  We had our team meeting and this was the first one I was able to attend in person.  We had lunch together and had a lot of fun stamping and talking.  I got to meet some new team members, which is always fun.

For today’s card I used another one of the new stamp sets from the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.  It’s the Stampin’ Up Bloom & Grow Photopolymer Stamp Set.  It comes as a bundle, but I only used the stamp set today.  Here’s my card.

My card joined in with the Freshly Made Sketches challenge #391.  Here is their sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of the beautiful Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper to a Petal Pink card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped one of the floral images from the Bloom & Grow stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I colored the image in using my Balmy Blue, Flirty Flamingo, Old Olive, Petal Pink and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the sentiment from the Bloom & Grow stamp set in Blueberry Bushel Ink above the floral image.

I adhered the artwork to a panel of Petal Pink cardstock using Snail then I adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the floral image from the Bloom & Grow stamp set in Petal Pink Ink on the bottom of a Whisper White panel.  I only colored in a few of the flowers and leaves on the inside using my Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the sentiment from the Bloom & Grow stamp set in Blueberry Bushel Ink in the center of the Whisper White panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Petal Pink card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card off I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the floral image from the Bloom & Grow stamp set in Petal Pink Ink on the envelope front and colored it in the same way I did for the inside of the card.  I adhered a panel of Perennial Essence DSP to the Envelope Flap.

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