Stampin’ Up! Charming Sentiments Birthday

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends and welcome to the weekend. I hope you have some fun plans in store. I’ll be at work all day today and not sure what I’ll be doing after work yet.

Today’s card someone asked me to make. There’s a little story behind it. She’s giving it to a friend that has 3 cats, Ivy, Maple and Willow. That will explain the designs on the images. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Charming Sentiments 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Charming Sentiments Bundle along with the Stampin’ Up! Willow Tree Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Stampin’ Up! Soft Seedlings Cling Stamp Set for my card today.

Stampin' Up! Charming Sentiments 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by adhering a panel of the Metallic & Shimmer Specialty Paper to a Basic White mat. I adhered the layered panel to a Cajun Craze card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Charming Sentiments Cling Stamp Set in Garden Green Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I cut the sentiment out using the Sentiment Silhouettes Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the top of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Charming Sentiments 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the maple leaf image form the Soft Seedlings stamp set in Real Red Ink. I stamped the willow leaf image from the Willow Tree stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink. Using the Full Basket Dies, I cut the maple leaf and willow leaves using the cat die. Using the Twigs & Sprigs Embossing Folder & Dies, I cut 2 panels of Garden Green cardstock. I adhered the ivy leaves to a panel of Garden Green cardstock using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I cut the Garden Green panel using the cat die from the Full Basket Dies. Using the Sentiments Silhouettes Dies, I cut out 4 details candles from a panel of Basic White cardstock. I cut 4 solid candles from scraps of Garden Green, Granny Apple Green, Pumpkin Pie and Real Red cardstock using the Sentiment Silhouettes Dies. I cut 4 flames from a scrap of Daffodil Delight cardstock.

Stampin' Up! Charming Sentiments 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

I adhered the solid candles to the back of the detailed candles and the flames to the top of the candles using small amounts of Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the candles to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the cats to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Brushed Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dots to the card front.

Stampin' Up! Charming Sentiments 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Charming Sentiments stamp set in Garden Green Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the willow leaf image from the Willow Tree stamp set on the top of the panel in Granny Apple Green Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Garden Green mat then to the inside of the Cajun Craze card base.

Stampin' Up! Charming Sentiments 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the maple leaf image from the Soft Seedlings stamp set in Real Red Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of Metallic & Shimmer Paper to the envelope flap.

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.

Stampin' Up! Beauty of Friendship Thank You 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

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.

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.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the tree images from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set in Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie and Soft Suede Inks on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of Butterfly Kisses DSP to the envelope flap.

I have a quick and easy card for you today using a bundle from the Annual Catalog. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin’ Up! Charming Sentiments Fun Fold Video Tutorial

Good Friday morning my stamping friends welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Can you believe it’s the middle of July already?? Has anyone made any plans for the weekend yet? I’ll be working all day tomorrow and Sunday.

Before I get started, today starts the Back To School Sales Tax Holiday. For those of you living in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Illinois, Massachusetts, Missouri, New Mexico, Ohio, Puerto Rico, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia and West Virginia…you’ve got sales tax holidays coming up!!

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.

Stampin’ Up! Splendid Thoughts CAS Blended

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. We’re halfway through the week and on our way to the weekend. Is anyone planning anything special for Father’s Day?

Today’s card is another one that we made on Sunday at our in-person team meeting. This card was designed by one of my team member Tara who lives in Missouri. I fell in love with this design the second I saw it. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Splendid Thoughts Bundle for my card today.

I started by putting 2 strips of Post-It Tape on a panel of Shimmery White cardstock leaving about 1 3/4″ opening between them. Starting with Pale Papaya Ink, using my Blending Brush, I added color to the top section of the panel. I then added Soft Succulent Ink using my Blending Brush in the center section. Last I used Orchid Oasis Ink on the bottom section with my Blending Brush.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Splendid Thoughts Cling Stamp Set in Evening Evergreen Ink on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Shimmer White panel to a Soft Succulent mat using Stampin’ Seal. I cut the leaf die using my Splendid Stems Dies from a panel of Soft Succulent cardstock. I adhered the leaf die to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I wrapped a piece of Evening Evergreen bakers’ twine, from the Fan Bakers Twine pack (retiring June 30), around the layered panel 3 times and tied a bow. I adhered the layered panel to an Evening Evergreen card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Iridescent Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Charming Sentiments Photopolymer Stamp Set in Evening Evergreen Ink on a Shimmery White panel. I stamped the large leaf image from the Splendid Thoughts stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Shimmery White panel to a Soft Succulent mat and then to the inside of the Evening Evergreen card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the large leaf image from the Splendid Thoughts stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink on the envelope front and flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked this card as much as I did. The products used will be available starting July 1 from the July-December 2022 Mini Catalog. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up Splendid Thoughts Sneak Peek

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone’s weekend going?

Today’s card is one that we will be making at our in person quarterly team meeting today. I’ll be presenting this one to the rest of my team members via zoom. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Splendid Thoughts Bundle along with the Splendid Day Specialty Designer Series Paper and the Stampin’ Up! Charming Sentiments Photopolymer Stamp Set for my card today.

I started by stamping the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Splendid Thoughts Cling Stamp Set in Evening Evergreen Ink on the top of a panel of Splendid Day DSP. I adhered the panel of DSP to a Pear Pizzazz mat. I adhered the layered panel to a Soft Sea Foam card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Using my Splendid Stems Dies, I cut the leaf dies from the panels of Evening Evergreen, Pear Pizzazz, Rich Razzleberry and Soft Sea Foam cardstock. I cut the half circle die from the strip of Splendid Day DSP.

I adhered the leaf dies to the back of the half circle die using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the collage to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I tied a small bow using the Soft Sea Foam Seam Binding Ribbon and adhered it to the garden dish using a Glue Dot.

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Charming Sentiments stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the leaf images from the Splendid Thoughts stamp set in Evening Evergreen and Pear Pizzazz Ink on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Pear Pizzazz mat and then to the inside of the Soft Sea Foam card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped 2 of the leaf images from the Splendid Thoughts stamp set on the envelope front in Evening Evergreen and Pear Pizzazz once full strength and once stamped off. I adhered a panel of the Splendid Day DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card. This bundle will be available for purchase July 1st from the July-December 2022 Mini Catalog. If you are interested in joining and getting this set early, contact me. I’d be happy to talk to you. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Sending Charming Smiles

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone’s weekend going? I worked all day yesterday and was it ever busy. I’m working at the dog bakery today and it’s supposed to be another beautiful day, so I’m guessing it’ll be a busy one. Hopefully lots of pups will come is so we can give them treats.

I have a clean and simple card today. I’m trying to come up with designs for my card class this week. I have a couple new ladies coming and I’m not sure of their style. I’m trying to keep things a little on the simpler side. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Sending Smiles Bundle along with the Stampin’ Up! Charming Sentiments Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Subtle 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by adhering a panel of Subtle DSP to a Petal Pink card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the stem images from the Sending Smiles stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink. I stamped the flower images from the Sending Smiles stamp set in Petal Pink Ink on the double stem. I stamped the flower centers in So Saffron Ink.

I cut the panel out using the 2nd largest Stitched Rectangle Dies. I stamped the sentiment from the Charming Sentiments stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink on the top of the panel. On a scrap of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the small flower image from the Sending Smiles stamp set in Orchid Oasis Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper. I cut the flower out using my Sending dies. I adhered the cut flower to the smaller stem using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the stamped panel to a panel of Mint Macaron cardstock on an angle using Stampin’ Seal.

I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Charming Sentiments stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the stem image from the Sending Smiles stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the flower images from the Sending Smiles stamp set in Petal Pink Ink and the flower centers in So Saffron Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Mint Macaron mat and then to the inside of the Petal Pink card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the stems from the Sending Smiles stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink on the envelope front. I stamped the flower images from the Sending Smiles stamp set in Orchid Oasis, stamped off once on scrap paper, and Petal Pink Ink on the stems. I stamped the flower centers in So Saffron Ink. I adhered a panel of Subtle 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! Cup of Tea for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. I hope everyone is doing well today. If you are hopping over from Akiko Sudano’s blog, thank you for stopping by. This week we have a Color Challenge. Here is my card using this week’s Colors.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Cup of Tea Bundle along with the Stampin’ Up! Charming Sentiments Bundle and the Tea Boutique 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my card today.

These are our colors for this week, the 2022-2024 In-Colors.

I started by adhering the largest panel of Tea Boutique DSP to a Starry Sky card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the longer thin panel of Tea Boutique DSP to the medium rectangle panel of Tea Boutique DSP using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the smaller rectangle panel of Tea Boutique DSP to the top of the layered panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I wrapped a piece of Starry Sky 1/8″ Metallic Woven Ribbon around the layered panel and tied a bow. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut the 4th largest Layering Circles Die from a panel of Basic White cardstock. I embossed the panel using my Hive 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the embossed panel to a scalloped circle which I cut with the coordinating Layering Circle Dies from a panel of Tahitian Tide cardstock. I adhered the layered circles to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Cup of Tea Photopolymer Stamp Set in Versamark Ink on a panel of Tahitian Tide cardstock. I sprinkled it with my White Embossing Powder from the Basic Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I cut the sentiment out using the Teacup Dies. I adhered the teacup to the center of the layered circles using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I cut the hearts using the Teacup Dies from a small panel of Sweet Sorbet cardstock. I adhered the hearts to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Charming Sentiments Photopolymer Stamp Set in Starry Sky Ink. I cut the sentiment out using my Sentiment Silhouettes Dies. I stamped the sentiment in the same place on a panel of Sweet Sorbet cardstock in Starry Sky Ink. On the bottom of the Basic White panel, I stamped the teacup image from the Cup of Tea stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image using my Parakeet Party and Tahitian Tide Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to the Sweet Sorbet mat, lining up the sentiment with the negative die cut area. I adhered the layered panel to the inside of the Starry Sky card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the teacup and teabag tag images from the Cup of Tea stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I colored the teacup in using my Parakeet Party and Tahitian Tide Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the sentiment from the Cup of Tea stamp set in the tag in Starry Sky Ink. I drew a line using my Starry Sky Stampin’ Write Marker from the cup to the tag. I adhered a panel of Tea Boutique DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for visiting my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Now that you’ve seen my card, take a minute to hop through and see everyone’s projects today.

Stampin’ Up! Sending Smiles Fun Fold Friday Video Tutorial

Good Friday morning my stamping friends welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Are you ready for the long Memorial Day weekend? I hope you are making some fun plans. We’re planning a small picnic for Monday afternoon.

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! Sending Smiles Bundle along with the Stampin’ Up! Charming Sentiment Photopolymer Stamp Set, the Vellum Layering Designs and Design A Daydream Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I cut a panel of Design A Daydream DSP using the largest square from the Stylish Shapes Dies. I adhered the panel to a Petal Pink mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to a Vellum Layering Designs card front using Stampin’ Seal.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the 2 stem images from the Stampin’ Up! Sending Smiles Photopolymer Stamp Set in Mint Macaron Ink. I stamped 3 of the flower images from Sending Smiles stamp set in Fresh Freesia and Petal Pink Inks and the flower centers in Daffodil Delight Ink. I cut the stem and flower images using my Sending Dies. I cut the detailed sentiment from the Sending Dies from a panel of Design A Daydream DSP. I cut the bubble die from a panel of Mint Macaron cardstock. I adhered the detailed sentiment to the bubble sentiment using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered the 2 stems to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the flowers on top of the stems using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the sentiment across the bottom of the stems using Stampin’ Dimensionals. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Sending Smiles stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink. I cut the sentiment out using the Sending Dies and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few 2021-2023 In-Color Opal Rounds to the card front.

Fo the inside, I scored a panel of Mint Macaron cardstock at 2 1/8″, 4 1/4′ & 6 3/8″. I centered the 4th largest Deckled Rectangle Die on the panel and cut it out. The center score line is a mountain fold, and the 2 side score lines are valley folds. I adhered 2 panels of Design A Daydream DSP to either side of the Mint Macaron panel. On the Basic White Thick card base, I stamped the sentiment from the Charming Sentiments stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink in the center of the panel. I stamped the 2 stem images from the Sending Smiles stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink on the bottom of the panel below the sentiment. I stamped the flower images from the Sending Smiles stamp set on the stems in Fresh Freesia and Petal Pink Inks and the flower centers in Daffodil Delight Ink. I then scored and folded the Basic White Thick card base. I adhered the Mint Macaron panel to the inside of the Basic White Thick card base using Stampin’ Seal +. I added a couple Brushed Brass Butterflies to the inside of the card.

Here is a photo of how the card will look from the top.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the flower and stem image from the Sending Smiles stamp set in Mint Macaron, Petal Pink and Fresh Freesia Inks. I adhered a panel of Design A Daydream 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.
