Stampin’ Up! Cactus Cuties Hello

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends and welcome to the weekend. I hope you have some fun plans in store. I’m working all day today, which is fine since it’s supposed to rain again. I do have off tomorrow though YAY!!!

I was busy yesterday getting everything ready to send out the new 2022-2023 Annual Catalogs to my customers and lost track of time. I was focused on getting them to the post office and shipped out. With that being said, I have a quick card for you today using retiring items. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Cactus Cuties Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Bloom Where You’re Planted Designer Series Paper. Not only both of these items will be retiring, but 2 of the colors I used, Bumblebee and Cinnamon Cider, will be retiring too.

I started by adhering a panel of Bloom Where You’re Planted DSP to a Cinnamon Cider card base.

I cut a panel of Basic White cardstock using the new Stylish Shapes Dies (available May 3rd). I stamped the flowerpot image from the Cactus Cuties stamp set in Cinnamon Cider Ink on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the cactus image from the Cactus Cuties stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink on the flowerpot. I stamped the flower image from the Cactus Cuties stamp set in Bumblebee Ink on the cactus image. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Cinnamon Cider mat on an angel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Cactus Cuties stamp set in Cinnamon Cider Ink. I cut the sentiment out using the Stylish Shapes Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a couple 2020-2022 In-Color Square Gems to the sentiment and a Bumblebee Trinket to the artwork.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Cactus Cuties stamp set in Cinnamon Cider Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the flowerpot, cactus and flower images from the Cactus Cuties stamp set the same as I did for the card front on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Cinnamon Cider mat and then to the inside of the Cinnamon Cider card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the cactus, flower and flowerpot images from the Cactus Cuties stamp set them same as I did for the card on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of Bloom Where You’re Planted 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! Cactus Cuties For Fun Fold Friday with Video Tutorial

Good Friday morning my stamping friends, welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s St. Patrick’s Day? Did everyone have a good week and looking forward to the weekend? I have to work all day Saturday and 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! Cactus Cuties Bundle along with the Bloom Where You’re Planted Designer Series Paper for my card today.

Here is the template for scoring and cutting the cardstock for the card base.

I started by scoring, cutting and folding the cardstock as in the photo above. I adhered panels of Bloom Where You’re Planted DSP to the coordinating Mossy Meadow mats. I adhered the layered panels to the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the cactus and cactus branch from the Stampin’ Up! Cactus Cuties Photopolymer Stamp Set that does not go with the punch in Mossy Meadow Ink and fussy cut them using my Paper Snips. I stamped the flowerpot with the diamonds from the Cactus Cuties stamp set in Cinnamon Cider Ink and fussy cut it using my Paper Snips. I stamped the cactus and cactus branch from the Cactus Cuties that go with the Cactus Builder Punch in Pear Pizzazz Ink and punched them out. I stamped the lined flowerpot from the Cactus Cuties stamp set in Cinnamon Cider Ink and punched it out using my Cactus Builder Punch. I stamped the flower image from the Cactus Cuties stamp set in Mango Melody and Polished Pink Ink on a strip of Basic White cardstock and punched them out using the Cactus Builder Punch. I adhered the Mossy Meadow cactus branch to the Mossy Meadow cactus and then to the diamond flowerpot and adhered it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the 3 Mango Melody flowers to the cactus. I adhered the Pear Pizzazz cactus branches to the Pear Pizzazz cactus and then to the lined flowerpot. I adhered this cactus to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the Polished Pink flowers to the branches.

I stamped the sentiment from the Cactus Cuties stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink to the Basic White strip of cardstock. I adhered the Basic White cardstock to a Mossy Meadow mat and then to the bottom of the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few 2020-2022 In-Color Square Gems to the sentiment and a Bumblebee Trinket by the flowers.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Cactus Cuties stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the lined flowerpot from the Cactus Cuties stamp set in Cinnamon Cider Ink on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the cactus and cactus branch from the Cactus Cuties stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink in the flowerpot and the flowers in Polished Pink Ink on the cactus. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Mossy Meadow mat and then to the inside of the Pear Pizzazz card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the cactus, flowerpot and flowers from the Cactus Cuties stamp set on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of Bloom Where You’re Planted 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 will CASE this card and please feel free to post it in the comments of my Facebook page under my post. I’d love to see your take on the card. 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! Sparkle of The Season for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers. Welcome to Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop. It’s the 2nd Tuesday of the month so that means Blog Hop Day!! If you are starting with me, be sure to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects. If you’ve hopped over from Shirley Gentry’s blog, welcome to my blog and thank you for stopping by. The theme this month is “Giving Thanks”.  We can interpret this however we want.  Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Sparkle of The Season Bundle along with the Bloom Where You’re Planted Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by adhering a panel of Bloom Where You’re Planted DSP to a Cinnamon Cider mat.

From a panel of Cinnamon Cider cardstock, I cut the leafy wreath using my Seasonal Swirls Dies. I adhered the wreath to the card front. I stamped the trio leaf image from the Stampin’ Up! Sparkle of The Season Photopolymer Stamp Set in Bumblebee and Real Red Inks inside the wreath on the DSP. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the leaf image from the Sparkle of The Season stamp set 2 times in Bumblebee Ink and 2 times in Real Red Ink. I stamped the other leafy image from the Sparkle of The Season stamp set in Just Jade Ink twice. I cut all the images out, along with the small floral die from a panel of Vellum Paper, using my Seasonal Swirls Dies.

I tied a bow using the Just Jade 3/8″ Gingham Ribbon from Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack and adhered it to the bottom of the wreath. I adhered the die cut leaf images under the bow. On the Basic White panel I stamped the sentiment from the Sparkle of The Season stamp set in Cinnamon Cider Ink and cut it out using my Hippo & Friends Dies and adhered it to the bottom of the card front. I adhered the card front to a Cinnamon Cider card base. I added a few Bumblebee 2020-2022 In-Color Square Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Sparkle of The Season stamp set in Cinnamon Cider Ink. I stamped the trio leaf image on either side of the sentiment in Bumblebee and Real Red Inks. I stamped the leaf images from the Sparkle of the Season stamp set in Bumblebee, Just Jade and Real Red Inks on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Cinnamon Cider mat and then to the inside of the Cinnamon Cider card base.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the leaf images from the Sparkle of The Season stamp set in Bumblebee, Just Jade and Real Red Inks on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of Bloom Where You’re Planted DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends. Welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Does anyone have plans for the weekend? By the time you are reading this I will be in the air flying to Georgia for our retreat (hopefully). I can’t wait to get there to stamp, eat and laugh with friends all weekend long.

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. A couple weeks ago I told you I was going to a Sunflower Maze. I did go and it was amazing. That is where some of my inspiration for my card today came from. I’ve shared a few pictures below of our day at the maze. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers Cling Stamp Set, the Stampin’ Up! Jar of Flowers Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Bloom Where You’re Planted Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by cutting my Night of Navy card base. I cut the front panel at the 2 3/4″ mark to the outside edge. I then cut on the 4 1/4″ score line up from the 2 3/4″ cut line. I adhered a panel of Bloom Where You’re Planted DSP to a Cinnamon Cider mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the layered panel to the bottom of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the small sunflower from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set and the bouquet from the Jar of Flowers stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I stamped the flowerpot image from the Stampin’ Up! Plentiful Plants Photopolymer Stamp Set in Cinnamon Cider Ink on the Basic White panel. I colored the images in using my Balmy Blue, Cherry Cobbler, Cinnamon Cider, Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green, Night of Navy, Pumpkin Pie and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the small sunflower image out using my Sunflower Dies and the flowerpot image using my Perfect Plants Dies. I fussy cut the sunflower bouquet using my Paper Snips. I cut a few sprigs from the Sunflower Dies from a panel of Soft Succulent cardstock.

I fussy cut one of the flowerpot images from a panel of the Bloom Where You’re Planted DSP using my Paper Snips. I adhered the Soft Succulent sprigs to the back of the flowerpot using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the sunflower bouquet to the front of the flowerpot using Glue Dots then adhered the arrangement to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside on a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the stem image from the Stampin’ Up! Daisy Lane Cling Stamp Set in Garden Green Ink. I cut the panel at 2 1/2″ and fussy cut around the stem using my Paper Snips. I adhered a panel of Bloom Where You’re Planted DSP to the top of a Cinnamon Cider mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the Basic White panel with the stem to the bottom of the Cinnamon Cider mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I stamped the sentiment from the Plentiful Plants stamp set in Garden Green Ink on the DSP panel. I adhered the small sunflower die to the top of the stem using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the die cut flowerpot to the bottom of the stem using Stampin’ Seal.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the small sunflower image from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom front of the envelope and colored it in the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of Bloom Where You’re Planted 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. If you do CASE this card, please feel free to post it in the comments of my Facebook page under the post. I’d love to see your take on the card. 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! Delicate Dahlias

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. Happy September!!! I can’t believe another month is gone. My daughter starts in person school today again, YAY!!! That means I get to start running her to the train station 3 mornings a week to catch a 7:30am train. She’s happy to be going back in person and to meet up with the friends she’s met online from her classes from the last couple semesters.

For today’s card I used one of my favorite Sale-a-bration sets that’s available right now. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Delicate Dahlias Sale-a-bration Photopolymer Stamp Set along with Bloom Where You’re Planted Designer Series Paper for today’s card.

My design is from Sunday Stamps Challenge #264.

I started by randomly stamping the large dahlia image from the Delicate Dahlias SAB stamp set in Pale Papaya Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the leaf image from the Delicate Dahlia stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink around the dahlia images using the Masking Technique. I cut the image out using my Stitched Rectangle Dies. I adhered the artwork to a Soft Succulent mat using Stampin’ Seal.

I adhered 2 panels of Bloom Where You’re Planted DSP to a panel of Soft Succulent cardstock using Stampin’ Seal. I wrapped a piece of 1/2″ Pale Papaya Woven Ribbon around the panel, adhering it to the back using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to a Soft Succulent card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the matted artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Delicate Dahlias stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink. On a small panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the small flower image from the Delicate Dahlias stamp set in Pale Papaya Ink and fussy cut the image using my Paper Snips. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the flower to the end of the sentiment using a Stampin’ Dimensional. I added a few 2021-2023 In-Color Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Delicate Dahlias stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the dahlia image from the Delicate Dahlias stamp set in Pale Papaya Ink on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the leaf image from the Delicate Dahlias stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink by the dahlia image. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Pale Papaya mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Soft Succulent card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basie White Medium Envelope. I stamped the dahlia image from the Delicate Dahlias stamp set in Pale Papaya Ink on the envelope front and the leaf image in Soft Succulent Ink. I adhered a panel of Bloom Where You’re Planted 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! Simply Succulents 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 yet? I’ll be working all weekend in the office and at the dog bakery.

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! Simply Succulents Bundle for my fun fold card today along with the Bloom Where You’re Planted Designer Series Paper.

I started by scoring a Gray Granite card base at 3 1/4″ & 4 1/4″. I folded the card base in half at the 4 1/4″ score line and folded the front back at the 3 1/4″ score line. I adhered the 1″ binder edge together using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered a panel of the Bloom Where You’re Planted DSP to a Polished Pink mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, using the Stampin’ Up! Simply Succulents Cling Stamp Set, I stamped the flowerpot and 2 succulents in Tuxedo Black Ink. I stamped the sentiment from the Simply Succulents stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink on the same panel. I colored the images in using my Gray Granite, Polished Pink and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends Markers. Using my Potted Succulents Dies, I cut the images and sentiment, I cut the aloe plant die from a panel of Evening Evergreen cardstock and the cascading die from a panel of Polished Pink cardstock. I adhered the dies to the flower pot using Stampin’ Seal and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered a strip of Polished Pink cardstock to the edge of the card bae using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. Using a punch, I snipped both ends to hold the ribbon in place. I wrapped a piece of Gray Granite 1/4″ Shimmer Ribbon around the end and tied a bow. I added a few Polished Pink 2021-2023 In-Color Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Simply Succulents stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink on a Basic White panel. I adhered a strip of the Bloom Where you’re Planted DSP to the bottom of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Polished Pink mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Gray Granite card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the flowerpot and succulent images from the Simply Succulents stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the images in using my Gray Granite, Polished Pink and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of Bloom Where You’re Planted 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. If you do CASE this card, please feel free to post it in the comments of my Facebook page under the post.

Stampin’ Up! Quiet Meadow Wedding

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone doing today. We’re halfway through the week and on our way to the weekend already. These days are just flying by.

Today’s card I made for someone very special. One of the girls that I used to babysit for many years ago is getting married and her shower is this month. Unfortunately I can’t go, it’s in Tennessee and on the 31st of the month. I only have 2 mandatory days I have to be at work in the office, the last day and the 1st day. I did send a gift to her mother, my friend, for her along with wishing well gifts and this card. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Quiet Meadow Bundle for my card today along with the Bloom Where You’re Planted Designer Series Paper. This paper is one of the beautiful patterns on sale right now for 15% off. The colors I used for my card are actually the brides theme colors, olive and deep burgundy.

I started by adhering a panel of the Bloom Where You’re Planted DSP to an Old Olive card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the flower image from the Stampin’ Up! Quiet Meadow Cling Stamp Set. I colored the stamp using my Merry Merlot and Old Olive Stampin’ Write Markers. I stamped the flower twice full strength and then the center one is stamped off once. I cut the image out using my Stitched Rectangle Dies. I adhered the artwork to a Merry Merlot mat using Stampin’ Seal. I wrapped a piece of White Bakers Twine from the Bakers Twine Essential Pack around the layered panel twice and tied a knot. On a piece of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Quiet Meadow stamp set in Merry Merlot Ink and cut it out using my Meadow Dies. I threaded the sentiment onto the bakers twine and tied a bow. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut the half butterfly die from the Meadow Dies twice, once from a piece of White Vellum paper and once from a piece of Gold Glimmer Vellum paper (available in the July-August 2021 Mini Catalog on August 3rd). I adhered the 2 butterflies together at the body using Multipurpose Liquid Glue then adhered them to the card front using a Glue Dot. I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Many Happenings Cling Stamp in Merry Merlot Ink on a Basic White panel. I did this by placing my stamp on the Stamparatus and just inking the 1 sentiment using my Merry Merlot Stampin’ Write Marker and stamping it on the panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the flower image from the Quiet Meadow stamp set on the side of the panel, inking it up with my Merry Merlot and Old Olive Stampin’ Write Markers and stamping off once. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Merry Merlot mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Old Olive card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the flower image from the Quiet Meadow stamp set on the envelope front the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of Bloom Where You’re Planted 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! Nothing’s Better Than Cocktails

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend. Did anyone do anything fun or exciting? Looks like we’ll be cooling down a bit her for the next week. Only in the mid to upper 80’s, just in time for me to redo another one of my gardens. I’m planning on digging out a tree tomorrow and prettying up that garden. I bought a few hydrangea bushes a couple months ago and haven’t gotten them in the ground yet. Luckily I’ve kept them very alive and healthy in their pots.

I have a fun card for today using another older set from the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog. My neighbors birthday is next weekend and she loves her cocktails. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Nothing’s Better Than Photopolymer Stamp Set along with a little of the Bloom Where You’re Planted Designer Series Paper for my card today.

My colors are from the Color Throwdown Challenge #651.

I started by stamping the cocktail glass image from the Nothing’s Better Than stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped 2 of the glasses with Bermuda Bay and 2 with Magenta Madness Inks. I stamped the limes in Granny Apple Green Ink. I stamped 2 of the umbrellas in Bermuda Bay Ink, stamped off once, and 2 in Magenta Madness Ink, stamped off once. I cut all the images out using my Love You More Than Dies.

On a panel of Night of Navy cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Nothing’s Better Than stamp set in Versamark Ink. I immediately sprinkled it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder from the Basic Emboss Powder pack. I set it using my Heat Tool. Using my Love You More Than Dies, I cut a Basic White panel and a Rainbow Glimmer paper panel with the cocktails dies.

I adhered a panel of Bloom Where You’re Planted DSP to the bottom of the Night of Navy card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the cocktail glassed on top of the DSP using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I wrapped a piece of Linen Thread around the panel below the glasses but at the top of the DSP panel and tied a knot in the back. I adhered the die cut sentiments to the top of the panel off setting them a bit, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the card front to a Night of Navy card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few 2020-2022 In-Color Square Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped 2 of the sentiments from the Nothing’s Better Than stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Moments Cling Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink below the other 2. I stamped the cocktail glass image from the Nothing’s Better Than stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom of the panel and stamped the fill images the same as I did for the card front. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Magenta Madness mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Night of Navy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the cocktail images from the Nothing’s Better Than stamp set on the envelope front the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of Bloom Where You’re Planted DSP on 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!!
