Stampin’ Up! Hello Sunflower Sneak Peek

Good Monday morning my stamping friends.  How was everyone’s weekend?

I have another sneak peek for you today.  I don’t know which is my favorite so far.  I just love all the new sets I’ve gotten.  Here’s my card for today.

I started by embossing a Cinnamon Cider card front using the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered a panel of the new 2020-2022 In-Color Designer Series Paper in Bumble Bee on top of the panel.  I wrapped a piece of the new Cinnamon Cider 1/4″ In-Color Ribbon around the center of the panel.  I adhered the card front to a Cinnamon Cider card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the small sunflower and small leaf images from the Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers Cling Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink.  I colored the image in using my Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, Granny Apple Green and Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the images out using my Sunflower Dies.  I cut the 2nd largest circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies from a Whisper White panel.  I adhered the sunflower to the panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added the leaves under the sunflower using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a very thin strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips Photopolymer Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink.  I sponged the edges lightly using my Sponge Dauber and the Early Espresso Ink.  I adhered the sentiment to the artwork using a Glue Dot and Mini Stampin’ Dimensional.  I added a few Bumble Bee 2020-2022 In-Color Enamel Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Early Espresso Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the large sunflower image from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Mango Melody Ink over the sentiment, stamping off twice.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Bumble Bee mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Cinnamon Cider card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the small sunflower image from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the front of the envelope.  I colored the image in using my Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, Granny Apple Green and Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of the 2020-2022 In-Color 6 X 6 DSP in Bumble Bee 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! Celebrate Sunflowers Sneak Peek

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends.  How has everyone’s weekend started off?  I have to work today, but I have all day tomorrow off.

For today’s card I have another sneak peek for you from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.  Speaking of catalogs, I finally got my catalogs yesterday.  If you are a customer of mine, you will be receiving yours shortly.  Here’s my card for today.

My design is from the Tuesday Morning Sketches #554.  Here is their sketch.

I also played along with the Cardz 4 Galz Challenge #121.  Their theme is ‘Birthday’.

I started by adhering a panel of the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper to a Just Jade mat using Snail.  I adhered the matted panel to a Bumble Bee card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Bumble Bee cardstock I stamped the large sunflower image from the Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers Cling Stamp Set in Crushed Curry Ink.  I cut the image out using the Sunflower Dies.  I cut the detailed sunflower die and the sunflower center die out of a panel of Cinnamon Cider cardstock using the Sunflower Dies.  I adhered the detailed die to the stamped image with tiny amounts of Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the center die using Multipurpose Liquid glue.  I stamped the larger leaf image from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink on a panel of Just Jade cardstock.  I cut the images out using the Sunflower Dies.  I cut the detailed leaf die out of a panel of Shaded Spruce cardstock.  I adhered a piece of the gorgeous new Bumble Bee 1/4″ Gingham Ribbon to the card front using a few Glue Dots.  I adhered the sunflower to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added the leaves under the sunflower with a dot of Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Early Espresso Ink.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Just Jade 2020-2022 In-Color Enamel Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the large sunflower image from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Crushed Curry Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel, stamping off once.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! So Sentimental Cling Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink over the sunflower image.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Just Jade mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Bumble Bee card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the large sunflower image from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set on the envelope front in Crushed Curry Ink.  I adhered a panel of the In Good Taste 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! Tasteful Touches Sneak Peek for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday.  How was everyone’s week?  Hope it was a productive one.  Is anyone doing anything for the weekend?  Sunday is Mother’s Day and I’m hoping to enjoy some crafting time.  It’s suppose to be cold here this weekend.  They are talking about getting snow tonight (which I’m actually not happy about).  I have to make some kind of tents tonight to try to protect my plants.  The last frost we had damaged a couple of them so I want to be prepared.

I’ve have a sneak peek for you today on some items from the new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.  I’ve made a peek-a-boo slider card for you using a new stamp set and the beautiful Just Jade cardstock.  I’m not a green fan, but I absolutely love this color.  Items for my card will be available June 3rd.  If you want to get the items early, you might want to consider joining as a demonstrator.  I’d be happy to help you do that, just drop me a line and I will help you.  We have an awesome team and I’d love to have you join us.   Here’s my card for today.

I started with the card front by stamping the leafy image from the Stampin’ Up! Tasteful Touches Cling Stamp Set in Shaded Spruce Ink on the Just Jade panel.  I stamped some in full strength ink and some stamped off twice. I set the panel aside.

I then worked on the inside of the card.  I folded the card center and cut a circle using the 4th from largest (2 1/4″) from the Layering Circles Dies and cut through both front and back.  I adhered a panel of the gorgeous new In Good Taste Designer Series Paper to the inside of the center card using Snail.  I opened the card center and lined up the 2 1/4″ circle die from the Layering Circles Dies with the already cut circle and cut through the DSP.  I scored and folded the card back and  adhered the card center using Tear &Tape Adhesive on the 1/4″ scored piece.  It should look like the photo below.

I adhered the card front to the card center using Snail on the front of the card center (hope this makes sense).  It will look like the photo below.

I opened all the panels so that I could cut the circle out of the card front.  I lined up the 2 1/4″ circle die from the Layering Circles Dies, with the circle from the card center and cut through the card front.

I stamped the sentiment from the Tasteful Touches stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink on the top of the card front. I added a couple Rhinestone Basic Jewels on either side of the sentiment.

I cut a scallop circle from a panel of Rococo Rose cardstock using the 3rd largest (2 1/2″) scallop circle from the Layering Circles Dies.  I cut the center out using the same circle (2 1/4″) I used to cut the card panels.  I adhered the scalloped circle frame to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I tied a small bow using the new Just Jade Gingham Ribbon from the Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack and adhered it to the card front using a Glue Dot.

I stamped the beautiful flower image from the Tasteful Touches stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a Whisper White panel.  I colored the image in using my Rococo Rose Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the image out using the 3rd largest circle (2 1/2″) from the Layering Circles Dies.  I added some Snail to the back of the image and lined it up behind the center card so that you could see it is centered in the circle.  I closed the card back onto the circle so that it was adhered to the card back.  You see the flower when the card is closed.

When you open the card you see a sentiment.  I stamped the sentiment  from the new Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers Cling Stamp Set in Shaded Spruce Ink in the center of the circle (which is actually on the small folded panel from the card front).  I stamped the feather image from the Tasteful Touches stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink around the sentiment, stamping off once.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the leafy image from the Tasteful Touches stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink on the envelope front.  Some are stamped in full strength and some are stamped off twice.  I adhered a panel of the In Good Taste DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my fun fold and will give it a try.  This is one of those fun folds that is easier to show than explain.  I may considering starting to do Facebook live videos when I do some of these fun folds.  They are much easier to show in person.  Hope you all have a wonderful Mother’s Day and you all get pampered the way we should for all the work we do.  Happy Stamping!!
