Stampin’ Up Harvest Hellos Sneak Peek for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to Fun Fold Friday.  How has everyone’s week gone?  Are you ready for the 3 day weekend?  Do you have some fun picnic plans for Monday?

Today I have a Joy Fold card for you featuring one of the new bundles in the upcoming 2019 Holiday Catalog called Harvest Hellos.  Here’s my card.

I started by embossing a Whisper White panel with my Subtle 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Poppy Parade card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the Pacific Point card base in the center of the Whisper White panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue with the opening to the left.

I stamped the apple seed image from the Stampin’ Up Harvest Hellos Cling Stamp Set along the bottom of a Poppy Parade Brights 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored them in using my Dark Basic Black Stampin’ Blends Marker.  On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the apple slice image from the Harvest Hellos stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink twice.  I colored the image in using my Poppy Parade and Dark Basic Black Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I fussy cut the images using my Paper Snips.  I adhered the apple slices above the stamped seeds on the Brights 6 X 6 DSP using Glue Dots on the bottom one and Stampin’ Dimensionals. on the top one.  I stamped the sentiment from the Harvest Hellos stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the top of the DSP panel. I adhered the DSP panel to a Whisper White mat using Snail and then to the front left side of the card base.

I stamped the apple image from the Harvest Hellos stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink twice on a Whisper White panel.  I colored the images in using my Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I punched the apples out using my Apple Builder Punch.  I stamped the stem and leaf images from the Harvest Hellos stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the Whisper White panel.  I colored them in using my Crumb Cake and Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I punched the stems and leaves out using my Apple Builder Punch and adhered them to the apple using Glue Dots.  Using my Gathered Leaves Dies I cut out a Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry, Old Olive, Rich Razzleberry and Shaded Spruce leaves.  I adhered a woodgrain panel of Come To Gather Designer Series Paper to the front of the Pacific Point card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the leaves along the bottom of the card front, avoiding the right folded edge, using Glue Dots.  I adhered the apples on top of the leaves using Glue Dots and Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the apple seed and apple slice images from the Harvest Hellos stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink along the bottom of a Whisper White panel.  I colored the images in using my Dark Basic Black and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Country Home Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of the Whisper White panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Pacific Point card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the apple image from the Harvest Hellos stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front.  I colored it in the same as I did for the card.  I adhered a Poppy Parade panel of the Brights 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. The stamp set used for today’s card will be available on September 4th for purchase. Hope you all have a wonderful 3 day weekend and have some fun plans.

Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up New Wonders Birthday Card

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers.  Are you almost ready for the weekend?  It’s coming up really quick now.  I never made it to the 4-H Fair yesterday.  We had bad thunder storms and a lot of rain.  I feel bad for all those kids that worked so hard on their projects and with their animals to have the 1st day be rained out.  Today and tomorrow are suppose to be beautiful so hopefully they will have a good turn out.

For today’s card I used a Host Exclusive set.  There are a few sets in the catalogs that are set aside just for hosts to earn.  I used one of my favorites, the Stampin’ Up New Wonders Cling Stamp Set.  I just love the fairy images in this set.  Here’s my card.

I joined in with Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge #320 today.  Here’s their sketch.

I also played along with TGIF Challenge #223.  Here are their colors.

I started by adhering a Coastal Cabana panel of the Brights 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Melon Mambo mat using Snail.  I adhered the matted panel to a Gorgeous Grape card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped one of the fairy images from the New Wonders stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I only colored the hair and skin of the fairy in using my Crumb Cake and Ivory Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the image out using the 2nd largest circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I adhered it to a Melon Mambo scalloped circle mat, which I cut out using my Layering Circles Dies, using Snail.  I adhered the artwork just under the DSP strip using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped the sentiment from the New Wonders stamp set on a strip of Melon Mambo cardstock in VersaMark Ink.  I immediately sprinkled it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I punched the top of the strip using the  Delightful Tag Topper Punch.  I adhered the tag to the card front using a Glue Dot and Stampin’ Dimensional.  I added a small bow that I had made from my Whisper White Solid Bakers Twine and adhered it using a Glue Dot.  I added a few Glitter Enamel Dots to the tag and the card front.

On the inside I stamped another one of the fairy images from the New Wonders stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, stamping off twice, on a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the leaf image from the New Wonders stamp set in all 4 corners in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I stamped the sentiment from the New Wonders stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on top of the fairy image.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Melon Mambo mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Gorgeous Grape card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the fairy image from the New Wonders stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of the Brights 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 Abstract Impressions Thank You Card

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  Hope you are all doing well today and your are having a good week.

Sometimes we get so hung up on the new items in the new 2019-2020 catalog that we forget about carry over sets.  For today’s card I used one of the carry over sets,  the Stampin’ Up Abstract Impressions Photopolymer Stamp Set.  Take a look.

I started by adhering a panel of Flirty Flamingo Brights 6 X 6 Designer Series to a Granny Apple Green card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered a strip of Soft Sea Foam cardstock across the center of the card.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the stem images from the Abstract Impressions stamp set in Granny Apple Green and Soft Sea Foam Inks.  I stamped the first part of the flower image from the Abstract Impressions stamp set in Flirty Flamingo Ink stamping off once.  I stamped the second step of the flower image from the Abstract Impressions stamp set in Flirty Flamingo Ink.  I cut the artwork out using the largest circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies.

I curved the sentiment from the Abstract Impressions stamp set on one of my blocks and stamped it in Granny Apple Green Ink on the top of the circle.  One of the great things about Photopolymer stamps is that you can change the shape of them very easily.  I stamped the small butterfly from the Stampin’ Up Butterfly Gala Photopolymer Stamp Set in Granny Apple Green Ink on a scrap of Soft Sea Foam card stock and punched it out using the Butterfly Duet Punch.  I stamped the butterfly body from the Butterfly Gala stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the punched butterfly. I stamped the butterfly antenna from the Butterfly Gala stamp set on the artwork in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink then adhered the butterfly to the artwork using a Glue Dot.   I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the stems and flowers from the Abstract Impressions stamp set, across the bottom of a Whisper White panel, the same as I did for the artwork on the card front.  I stamped the sentiment from the Abstract Impressions stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink above the flowers on the Whisper White panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Soft Sea Foam mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Granny Apple Green card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the stems and flowers from the Abstract Impressions stamp set on the envelope front the same as I did for the card.  I adhered a panel of Granny Apple Green Brights 6 X 6 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!!

Stampin’ Up Butterfly Wishes Friendship Card Sneak Peek

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to today’s blog.  How is everyone doing?  We’re past the halfway mark for the week and on our way to a long holiday weekend.  Is anyone making any plans? Anyone going to or having a picnic?  I have a picnic every year celebrating my daughter’s birthday.  She was a Memorial Weekend baby.  This year she will be 21!  I don’t where the years have gone.

For today I have another sneak peek for you.  In case anyone is interested, we only have 12 days till the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog goes live, YAY!!  Is everyone’s wish list as long as mine?  I used the new Stampin’ Up Butterfly Wishes Cling Stamp Set for my card today.  It’s such a beautiful set.  Here’s my card.

I’ve joined in with the CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge #322.  Here are their colors.

I started with a Thick Whisper White card base and stamped the branch image from the Butterfly Wishes stamp set in the top right .  I used my Coastal Cabana, Pumpkin Pie and Soft Suede Stampin’ Write Markers to color the stamp in.  This is a great way to get multiple colors on your stamp without having to color the image in.

I then took a panel of Pumpkin Pie cardstock and cut it on a diagonal.  I stamped the bottom with the sentiment from the Butterfly Wishes stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I adhered the Pumpkin Pie panel to the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a piece of Daffodil Delight cardstock I stamped 2 large and 1 small butterflies from the Butterfly Wishes stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I punched the butterflies out using the Butterfly Duet Punch.  I adhered the butterflies to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and bent their wings up a little.  I added a few Coastal Cabana Glitter Enamel Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped another one of the butterfly images from the Butterfly Wishes stamp set in Pumpkin Pie Ink, stamping off 3 times to get a light image, on a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the Butterfly Wishes stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink over the butterfly image.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pumpkin Pie mat using Snail 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 a couple of the butterfly images from the Butterfly Wishes stamp set on the envelope front in Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie Inks.  I adhered a piece of Daffodil Delight Brights     6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to the envelope flap.  There was no DSP used on the card, but I figured since this paper will be retiring as of June 3rd, why not use it.  I also stamped a butterfly from the Butterfly Wishes stamp set on a scrap of Pumpkin Pie cardstock in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, punched it out using the Butterfly Duet Punch and adhered it below the envelope flap using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try.  The Butterfly Wishes stamp set will be available June 4th for purchase.  It’s truely a beautiful set.  I just love the sentiments from it and the fonts.  The Butterfly Duet Punch is available now as part of a bundle with the Stampin’ Up Butterfly Gala Stamp Set or you can purchase it individually.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Retirement List Clarification

It looks like every single stamp set from the 2018-19 Annual Catalog is being retired and that isn’t the case, the carryover sets are being transitioned to Cling Mount.

The stamp sets offered in clear-mount or wood-mount in the 2018–2019 annual catalog that are carrying over into the 2019–2020 annual catalog will be offered in clear-mount and/or wood-mount until existing inventory has been depleted or until June 4, 2019 (whichever comes first).

If the inventory is depleted, you will be notified of the automatic switch to cling when placing an order for that stamp set. This means that you may end up purchasing select cling stamp sets (in carryover artwork) before they can be ordered from the catalog!  All carryover rubber stamp sets will be available in cling medium only (with the exception of background stamps in North America) beginning June 4, 2019.

Stampin’ Up Beautiful You, Strong and Beautiful Graduation Card

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  How is everyone doing today?

For today I used one of my all time favorite stamp sets for a graduation card for you.  My niece has graduated earning her Masters Degree and I wanted to send her a special card letting her know how proud I am of her.  I used a few items that will be retiring as of June 3rd for my card.  Take a look.

I’ve played along with a couple challenges today.  First off is the CAS(E) This Sketch challenge #322.  Here is their sketch.

Next I played along with the Paper Craft Crew challenge #337.  Here is their challenge.

I joined in with the Stampin’ Up Only Challenges #223.  Their challenge is ‘Anything Spring’. This includes spring holidays, birthdays, graduations, babies!

I also joined in with the CAS on Friday Challenge #158.  Their challenge is ‘Use Polkadots’.

I started by adhering a panel of the soon to retire Brights 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Basic Black card bae using Snail.  I stamped the dancing woman image from the Stampin’ Up Beautiful You Clear Stamp Set on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I colored her in using my Light Basic Black, Ivory and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the artwork to a panel of Whisper White cardstock to give it a little color on color edge using Snail.  I then adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I cut a tiny square to look like a graduation cap out of Basic Black cardstock.  I took a small piece of Whisper White Bakers Twine and pulled it apart to get very thin strands to make a tassel on the cap, tied it in a knot and adhered it using a Glue Dot. I adhered a Metallic Pearl in the center of the tassel.  I adhered the graduation cap to the top of the woman’s head using a Stampin’ Dimensional.

Using my Big Shot and the soon to retire Celebrate You Thinlits, I cut out the celebrate in Basic Black and Poppy Parade cardstocks.  I adhered the Basic Black on top or the Poppy Parade, so that it had the shadow look, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the sentiment to the top of the artwork using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and thin strips of Stampin’ Dimensionals on the 2 ends.

On the inside I stamped the flowers from the new Stampin’ Up A Little Lace Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in 3 of the corners of a Whisper White panel.  I colored them in using my Granny Apple Green and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends Markers and added a little Rhinestone Basic Jewel in each flower.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Strong & Beautiful Cling Stamp Set in the center of the Whisper White panel in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  Using my Big Shot I cut out the amazing and you from the Celebrate You Thinlits in Poppy Parade cardstock using a piece of the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet behind it.  The Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets are great when you have very thin images to be glued down and don’t want to take a chance of making a mess with other adhesives.  I adhered the 2 sentiments above the stamped sentiment on the Whisper White panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Basic Black card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the flowers from the A Little Lace stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front.  I colored them in using my Granny Apple Green and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a piece of the Brights 6 X 6 DSP to the envelope flap.  I had to use a different pattern of DSP on the flap.  For the 1st time in all the years I’ve been making cards, I ran out of a DSP.  This has never happen to me.  The DSP usually retires before I have a chance to use it up.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try.  The Stampin’ Up Beautiful You Stamp Set and the Stampin’ Up Strong & Beautiful Stamp Set will be carrying over into the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog, but the Celebrate You Thinlits and the Brights 6 X 6 DSP will be retiring as of June 3rd.  The Stampin’ Up A Little Lace Stamp Set will be available June 4th for purchase.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up Apron Of Love Soon To Be Retired Set

Happy Earth Day my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Did you have a nice Easter?  I was very thankful to have my daughter, niece and nephew over to help me with the cooking.  I’m finding it to be a bit of a nuisance to work with just one arm, especially when putting food in and out of the oven.  They were wonderful and so much help, I am so lucky to have them.

For today’s card I’m using another set that will be retiring on June 3rd.  It’s the Stampin’ Up Apron Of Love Stamp Set.    Here’s my card.

I was also able to join in with a couple challenges with my card.  I played along with Fab Friday sketch challenge #161.  Here’s their sketch

I also joined in with the Color Throwdown color challenge #539.  Here are their colors.

I started by doing all my cutting so that I would have everything ready.  Using my Big Shot I cut the apron, bow, flowers, pocket, ruffle and strings out from the Apron Builder Die out of Brights 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper, Daffodil Delight, Pacific Point and Whisper White cardstock.  I then cut the Mango Melody frame using the largest and 3rd largest or the Stitched Rectangles Dies.  I cut Daffodil Delight and Whisper White squares from the Stitched Shapes Dies using the smallest square.  Then it was time to start assembling.

I started by arranging the squares to look like a tile floor then adhered the Mango Melody Frame to the top of the squares using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered it to a Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid glue.  I adhered the strings to the back of the apron using Glue Dots, the flowers to the front of the apron using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the bow to the pocket using a Glue Dot and the pocket to the ruffle using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered the pocket to the apron using Stampin’ Dimensionals and the apron to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I stamped the sentiment from the Apron Of Love stamp set on a piece of Vellum cardstock in Pacific Point Ink and made a banner out of it.  I adhered the banner to the bottom of the card front using Glue Dots.

On the inside I stamped the apron from the Apron Of Love stamp set in Pacific Point Ink on a Whisper White panel stamping it off once.  I stamped the utensils from the same stamp set in Daffodil Delight and Mango Melody Inks on the bottom of the panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Well Said Stamp Set in Pacific Point Ink in the center of the apron.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Mango Melody mat using Snail 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 utensils from the Apron Of Love stamp set in Daffodil Delight and Mango Melody Inks across the bottom to the envelope front.  I adhered a piece of the Brights 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.  If you are liking this set, I’d grab it before it’s too late.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up Wishing You Well

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Did anyone do anything fun?  I don’t usually rush weeks, but the end of this week is OnStage.  I’ll get to see the new 2019-2020 Annual catalog and all the new goodies coming out.  Hopefully next Monday I’ll be able to share some things with you.

For today’s card I really went outside of my comfort zone.  It’s not straight, and I meant to do this, it’s just not my normal.  I used the Stampin’ Up Wishing You Well Stamp Set, which was carried over from the holiday catalog.  This set has the most realistic bow ever.  I think that is one of the reasons I bought it.  Here’s my card.

I also joined in with CAS Colours and Sketches #315.  Here are their colors for the week.

I started with a card front of the Brights 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper in Gorgeous Grape and adhered it to a Gorgeous Grape card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the bouquet from the Wishing You Well stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink.  I added the flowers to the bouquet in Gorgeous Grape Ink.  I cut the image out using my Big Shot and the Square Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.  I stamped the bow from the same stamp set in Grapefruit Grove Ink and fussy cut it using my Paper Snips.  I cut a scalloped square frame from the Layering Squares Framelits Dies out of Grapefruit Grove cardstock.  I did this by picking the scalloped square I wanted to use and took a solid square 2 sizes smaller and cut them out together with my Big Shot.  On a strip of Granny Apple Green cardstock I stamped the sentiment from Stampin’ Up Itty Bitty Greetings in Versamark Ink.  I sprinkled it with my Grapefruit Grove Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat set it using my Heat Tool.

It took me a while to arrange this to my liking, but once I got it I secured the frame in the corners using Glue Dots.  I adhered the artwork over the frame using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the bow to the bottom of the bouquet using a Mini Stampin’ Dimensional.  I adhered the sentiment to the bottom of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I added a few Grapefruit Grove Share What You Love Artisan Pearls to the artwork and the sentiment.

On the inside I stamped the bouquet from the Wishing You Well stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink, stamping off twice, in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the flowers in the bouquet in Gorgeous Grape Ink stamping off 3 times.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Strong and Beautiful Stamp Set in Gorgeous Grape Ink over the bouquet.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Grapefruit Grove mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Gorgeous Grape card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the bouquet from the Wishing You Well stamp set the same as I did for the card on the envelope front.  I adhered a piece of the Brights 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!!

In addition to providing everything you need to make a pre-designed, all-inclusive project, we also have another goal in mind: to help you unlock and explore your creativity by introducing you to exciting and innovative products from Stampin’ Up!
In April’s Paper Pumpkin kit, we’re pleased to announce that we’ll be treating you to something extra-special: Stampin’ Up!’s brand new Distinktive® stamp images.

About Distinktive Stamps
Distinktive stamps give you photo-realistic images with just one stamp. They have a special texture that gives added depth and dimension in a single step.
These stamps are available only from Stampin’ Up! and are made using a patent-pending process.
Distinktive stamps are available in red rubber and photopolymer; Paper Pumpkin’s April kit includes photopolymer stamps.
Shop Distinktive stamps in the online store by searching “Distinktive,” or look for the Distinktive icon in Stampin’ Up! catalogs.
