Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Friendship Thank You

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. I hope you are having a great weekend. I will only be working a half day today, so I’ll have the afternoon to do something. A couple of my cashiers needed off so I’m splitting the day with another cashier that worked with me yesterday.

Today’s card is very similar to one that I made on Thursday except I changed the direction, DSP and embellishments. I also used my least favorite color, but for some reason I really like it for fall cards. I never make 2 cards identical, but I will make them similar by changing direction and some of the components a bit. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Beauty of Friendship Thank You 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Friendship Photopolymer Stamp Set, the Stampin’ Up! Charming Sentiments Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Butterfly Kisses 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my card today.

Stampin' Up! Beauty of Friendship Thank You 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by adhering a panel of Butterfly Kisses DSP to a Soft Suede mat. I adhered the layered panel to a Crushed Curry card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Beauty of Friendship Thank You 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the tree trunk image from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set in Soft Suede Ink. I stamped the solid treetop image from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set in Crushed Curry Ink over the branches. I stamped the detailed treetop image from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set in Pumpkin Pie Ink over the Crushed Curry image. I cut the image our using the largest die from the Seasonal Labels Dies. I adhered the die cut image to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the panel of Basic White cardstock. I cut the sentiment out with the smaller die from the Seasonal Labels Dies. Using the same die, I cut a panel of Soft Suede cardstock. I cut the Soft Suede die cut in half and adhered it to the back of the sentiment making a small mat. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using a Stampin’ Dimensionals and Glue Dot. I tied a knot with a piece of the Natural Finish 7/8″ Ribbon and adhered it to the card front using Glue Dots.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Charming Sentiments in Soft Suede Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock.

I stamped the solid treetop image from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set in Crushed Curry Ink over the branches. I stamped the detailed treetop image in Pumpkin Pie Ink over the Crushed Curry image. I stamped the splotch image in Crushed Curry and Pumpkin Pie Inks below the tree. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Soft Suede mat, then to the inside of the Crushed Curry card base.

Stampin’ Up! Willow Tree Get Well Card

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends. I hope you all had a wonderful Labor Day weekend and were able to do something fun.

I played with a new set to me today from the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog. As most of you know, I do not like the color yellow and I especially do not like Crushed Curry. That’s what I used today. Even though I don’t like it, I do like it for fall cards. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Willow Tree Get Well 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Willow Tree Bundle along with the Stampin’ Up! Through It Together Cling Stamp Set and Butterfly Kisses 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my card today.

Stampin' Up! Willow Tree Get Well 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by adhering a panel of Butterfly Kisses DSP to a Garden Green mat. I adhered the layered panel to a Crushed Curry card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped the tree top image from the Willow Tree stamp set in Crushed Curry Ink on the tree trunk. On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the smaller tree top image from the Willow Tree stamp set in Crushed Curry Ink and cut the image out using my Willow Dies. Using my Willow Dies, I cut the leaf dies from a panel of Crushed Curry cardstock. I adhered the leaf dies to the stamped image using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the die cut tree top image to the stamped image using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Willow Tree Get Well 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the bottom of the panel, I stamped the solid grass image from the Willow Tree stamp set in Garden Green Ink below the tree. I stamped the detailed grass image from the Willow Tree stamp set in Garden Green Ink around the solid image. I stamped the bunny image from the Willow Tree stamp set in Gray Granite Ink. I adhered the panel to a Garden Green mat. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

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 is my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Charming Sentiments Bundle along with the Stampin’ Up! Quiet Meadow Cling Stamp Set and the Butterfly Kisses 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper.

I started by scoring and folding the Fresh Freesia card base as listed below. I adhered a panel of Butterfly Kisses DSP to a Night of Navy mat. I adhered the layered panels to the Fresh Freesia card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Charming Sentiments Photopolymer Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink. I cut the sentiment out using the coordinating die from the Sentiment Silhouettes Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Rhinestones Basic Jewels to the card front.

I adhered 2 more panels of the Butterfly Kisses DSP to the inside of the card base. I scored & folded 3 strips of Night of Navy cardstock. I adhered the 6 square panels of Butterfly Kisses DSP to the inner 2 sections of the strips using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the strips to the inside of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue on the 2 outside sections of the Night of Navy strips lining the center fold up with the fold line of the card base. I fussy cut multiple butterflies from the Butterfly Kisses DSP using my Paper Snips. I adhered the butterflies to the inside of the card base using Glue Dots.

I stamped the sentiment from the Charming Sentiments stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on the top of a Basic White Panel. I stamped the tall floral image from the Quiet Meadow stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom of the panel. I colored the image using my Fresh Freesia and Parakeet Party Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the splatter image from the Quiet Meadow stamp set in Fresh Freesia Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper, around the floral image. I adhered 2 of the fussy cut butterflies from the Butterfly Kisses DSP to the panel using Glue Dots. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Night of Navy mat and then to the back of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the floral image from the Quiet Meadow stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I colored the image using my Fresh Freesia and Parakeet Party Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of Butterfly Kisses DSP to the envelope flap.
