Stampin’ Up! Sentimental Park for The Card Concepts

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. I hope everyone’s week is going well. We’re halfway through and on our way to the weekend.

It’s time for an inspiration challenge from The Card Concepts. The inspiration photo #187a is Winter Cocoa and inspiration photo #187b is Winter Snow.  Here is my card that was inspired from the challenge photo.

Stampin' Up! Sentimental Park 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Sentimental Park Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Stampin’ Up! Ringed With Nature Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the By The Bay 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my card today. I was inspired by the colors from inspiration photo #187a for my clean & layered card.

I hope you will take a moment to visit The Card Concepts and join us for our challenge #187a or #187b.  How are you inspired by the photos?

My design is from Sunday Stamps Challenge #300.

Stampin' Up! Sentimental Park 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by embossing a panel of Cherry Cobbler cardstock using the Tree Rings Hybrid Embossing Folder. I cut a panel of By The Bay DSP using the Deckled Rectangle Dies. I adhered the die cut panel of By The Bay DSP to an Early Espresso mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to the Cherry Cobbler card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I stamped the sentiment from Sentimental Park stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the bottom of the DSP panel. I wrapped a piece of Crumb Cake Bakers Twine from the Baker’s Twine Essential Pack, around the card front 3 times and tied a knot.

Using the Tree Rings Dies with the Tree Rings Hybrid Embossing Folder, I cut a panel of Crumb Cake and Early Espresso cardstock. I cut the center out from the Crumb Cake panel using the Tree Rings Dies. I adhered the Crumb Cake center to the Early Espresso panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the layered tree ring to the card front, over the bakers twine, using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Sentimental Park 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

Using the Christmas Pinecone Dies I cut the detailed die from a panel of Early Espresso cardstock and the solid image from a panel of Crumb Cake cardstock, 3 times each. I adhered the detailed pinecones to the solid pinecones using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the layered pinecones to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the card front to an Early Espresso card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Enamel Dot Essentials to the card front.

Stampin' Up! Sentimental Park 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside, I stamped the tree ring image from the Ringed With Nature stamp set on a panel of Basic White cardstock in Crumb Cake Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper. I stamped the sentiments from the Sentimental Park stamp set in Early Espresso Ink over the tree ring image. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat then to the inside of the Early Espresso card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic Whtie Medium Envelope. I stamped the tree ring image from the Ringed With Nature stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink on the envelope front, stamping off once on scrap paper. I stamped the sentiment from the Ringed With Nature stamp set in Early Espresso Ink over the tree ring image. I adhered a panel of By The Bay DSP to the envelope flap.

In response to changing policies at Stampin’ Up – I’m adjusting my Ordering Gift policy as well.  I’m having to get a little more tough on the adding of Host codes when you place your order thru my Online Store.

Not to worry – you’re still going to get that $10 ordering gift for orders of $50 (before shipping & tax) or greater.  And the gift is still any 1 SU! product up to that $10 value – which includes some of our fun Host Sets!

But – if you DO NOT use the Host code for your orders of less than $150 (this is the RETAIL total before Shipping & Handling), then you’ll have two options:

  1. You’ll need to call Stampin’ Up! (1-800-Stamp-Up) and ask them to add it for you. They’re very helpful and will get it done quickly!  OR….
  2. If your order was over the $50 threshold but under $150, then…you’ll forfeit that $10 ordering gift and rewards – this is the Bummer Option – and I REALLY don’t want to do this, SO please remember to add my Current Host Code.

Stampin’ Up! Seaside Bay for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? What are you all doing this weekend? I’ll be at work tomorrow all day and I’m not sure about Sunday yet. I have the day off again, YAY!!!

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.

Stampin' Up! Seaside Bay Fun Fold 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Seaside Bay Bundle along with the By The Bay 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my card today.

Stampin' Up! Seaside Bay Fun Fold 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by cutting 2 3/4″ off the 4 1/4″ X 11″ Sahara Sand Card front using my Paper Trimmer. I adhered a panel of By The Bay DSP to the front of the Sahara Sand card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the Sahara Sand Panel, horizontally, to the card front using Stampin’ Seal only on the left side.

Stampin' Up! Seaside Bay Fun Fold 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the bird image from the Seaside Bay stamp set in Basic Gray Ink. I stamped the sentiment from the Seaside Bay stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on the top of the panel. On a panel of Sahara Sand cardstock, I stamped the shell/sand image from the Seaside Bay stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink. After letting it dry for a bit, I stamped the sand image from the Seaside Bay stamp set in Versamark Ink. I sprinkled it with my Clear Embossing Powder and set it with my Heat Tool. I cut the panel using the sand border die from the Seaside Bay Dies. I adhered the panel to the bottom of the Basic White panel using Stampin’ Seal. From a panel of Mint Macaron cardstock I cut the sea grass using my Seaside Bay Dies. I added a little Mint Macaron Ink to the grass using my Sponge Dauber. From a panel of Sahara Sand and Pearlescent Specialty Paper I cut the shell image using the Seaside Bay Dies.

Stampin' Up! Seaside Bay Fun Fold 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

I cut the Pearlescent shell in half and adhered it to the inside of the Sahara Sand die cut shell. I brushed a little Petal Pink Ink on top of the shell using my Small Blending Brush. I adhered the sea grass die cut pieces to the Basic White panel using Glue Dots. I adhered the shell on top of the grass using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the Basic White panel the Sahara Sand card front using Stampin’ Seal. I added a Flat Adhesive-Backed Pearl inside the shell and Iridescent Pearls to the card front.

Stampin' Up! Seaside Bay Fun Fold 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside, I adhered a panel of By The Bay DSP to the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Seaside Bay stamp set in Starry Sky Ink. I stamped the shell and sand image from the Seaside Bay stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to the inside left of the card base.

Stampin' Up! Seaside Bay Fun Fold 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the larger shell image from the Seaside Bay stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of By The Bay DSP to the envelope flap.
