Stampin’ Up! Season of Thanks

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  How has everyone’s week started off?

I’ve got a fall card for you today using the Basic Pattern Decorative Masks and the sponging technique.  Here’s my card.

My colors were inspired by the Sunday Stamps Fall Harvest Challenge #215.  Here are there colors.

I started by placing one of the Basic Pattern Decorative Masks over a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock.  I sponged the middle of the mask using my Stamping Sponges with Cajun Craze Ink.  I then went around the Cajun Craze with Pumpkin Pie Ink and finished the edges with So Saffron Ink.  I wrapped a piece of the Cajun Craze Lined Thread from the Come To Gather Ribbon Combo Pack around the Very Vanilla panel.

I stamped the large leaf image from the Stampin’ Up Gather Together Photopolymer Stamp Set in Versamark Ink on a panel of So Saffron Vellum from the Perennial Essence 12″ X 12″ Vellum Cardstock.  I immediately sprinkled it with my Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I cut the leaf out using the Gathered Leaves Dies.  I cut out Cajun Craze, Pumpkin Pie and So Saffron leaves using the Gathered Leaves Dies.  I cut out a Cajun Craze/Pumpkin Pie leaf using the Seasonal Layers Dies.   I arranged the leaves how I wanted them and adhered them to the card front using Glue Dots and Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a Cajun Craze Linen Thread Bow from the Come To Gather Ribbon Combo Pack under the leaves using a Glue Dot.

I stamped the sentiment from the Gather Together stamp set in Basic Gray Ink on the bottom of the Very Vanilla panel.  I added a few silver  Metallic Pearls around the leaves.  I adhered the card front to a Basic Gray card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Gather Together stamp set in Basic Gray Ink to the center of a Very Vanilla panel.  I stamped the small leaf image from the Stampin’ Up Colorful Seasons Photopolymer Stamp Set in Cajun Craze, Pumpkin Pie and So Saffron Ink to the bottom of the panel.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to the inside of a Basic Gray card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I stamped the small leaf image from the Colorful Seasons stamp set across the bottom front of the envelope in Cajun Craze, Pumpkin Pie and So Saffron Inks.   I used the Basic Pattern Decorative Masks on the envelope flap and colored it the same as I did for the card front.

Thank you for visiting my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping !!

Stampin’ Up! Everything Amazing for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to Fun Fold Friday.  How was everyone’s week?  Are you ready for the weekend?  It’s here ready or not.  Is anyone making any plans?  Tomorrow is World Card Making Day, I hope you will be able to join my team in watching our Facebook Live videos.  They will be starting at 9am and continue until 9pm.  The link is below how to join or find us.

For today’s card I have a gate fold that I turned.  Here’s my card.

My colors were inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge #324.  Here are their colors.

I started by adhering 2 panels of Come To Gather Designer Series Paper to Pretty Peacock mats using Snail.  I adhered both panels to the Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the large image from the Stampin’ Up! Everything Amazing Photopolymer Stamp Set in Terracotta Tile Ink.  I stamped the 2 smaller sentiment from the Everything Amazing stamp set in Grapefruit Grove Ink on the larger image.  I adhered the artwork panel to a Pretty Peacock mat using Snail.  I cut leaves out using the Seasonal Layers Dies in Grapefruit Grove, Mint Macaron, Pretty Peacock and Terracotta Tile cardstocks.  I adhered the leaves to the artwork back and front using Glue Dots.  I added a couple 2019-2021 In-Color Faceted Dots to the artwork.

I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals only to the left half of the panel.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Colorful Seasons Photopolymer Stamp Set in Terracotta Tile Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the leaf image from the Colorful Seasons stamp set in Grapefruit Grove Ink, stamping off once, on either side of the sentient and over the sentiment.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pretty Peacock mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I finished my card by decorating a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the leaf image from the Colorful Seasons stamp set in Grapefruit Grove and Terracotta Tile Ink across the bottom of the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of Come To Gather 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.  Please don’t forget to hop on and watch us on our Facebook Lives videos tomorrow.  I will be going live at 4pm.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Seasonal Wreaths

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Did anyone do anything fun or exciting?  I worked all day on Saturday, but Sunday was our in person Team Meeting.  I had fun catching up with friends and crafting together.

For today’s card I made a pretty quick and easy one for you.  Here’s my card.

I played along with a couple challenges again.  I joined in with the CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge #338.  There’s is a sketch challenge and here’s their sketch.

Next I played along with The Color Throwdown Color Challenge #560.  Here are their colors.

I started by embossing a Soft Suede card front using the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the card front to a Soft Suede card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped the wreath image from the Stampin’ Up! Seasonal Wreaths Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a small panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I colored the image in using my Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive, Soft Suede and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the sentiment from the Seasonal Wreaths stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink in the center of the wreath.  I fussy cut the wreath out using my Paper Snips and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a strip of So Saffron and Old Olive card stock below the wreath using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered a small bow made from the Linen Thread to the bottom of the wreath using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Seasonal Wreaths stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink to the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the detailed leaf image from the Stampin’ Up! Colorful Seasons Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in 2 of the corners of the Whisper White panel.  I colored the leaves in using my Old Olive and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat using Snail and then adhered it to the inside of the Soft Suede card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the detailed leaf image from the Colorful Seasons stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front and flap.  I colored the leaves in using my Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up Harvest Hellos Fall Birthday Card for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday blog.  It’s Friday the 13th, there’s a full moon and it’s a harvest moon tonight.  I love watching the full moon rise at night, I’m hoping it will be a nice clear night to see it.  How was everyone’s week?  The weekend is here already, I hope you have some fun plans.  We’re at apple picking season here, that’s always a lot of fun.

For today’s card I made a Dutch Door Card using multiple fall related stamp sets.  Here’s my card.

I played along with the Paper Players Color Challenge #458.  Here are their colors.

I started by putting together my card base.  I scored the 4 1/8″ X 8 3/4″ panel of Pretty Peacock cardstock at 5 1/2″ and folded it.  I scored the 8 1/2″ X 2 1/4″ panel of Pretty Peacock cardstock at 2 1/8″ and 6 3/8″ and folded it on the score lines.  I adhered the larger card base to the smaller card base so that the 2 folded  sides would close over the bottom of the larger card base using Tear & Tape Adhesive.  I adhered a panel of Come To Gather Designer Series Paper to the top portion of the card base using Snail.  I then adhered the 2 smaller panels of Come To Gather DSP to the outside  bottom portion of the card base to the edges so that they met in the middle and there was no border using Snail..

I cut out 3 Merry Merlot leaves using the Seasonal Layers Dies.  I cut out 2 more leaves, one in Cajun Craze and the other in Pretty Peacock using the Gathered Leaves Dies.  I stamped the pumpkin image from the Stampn’ Up Harvest Hellos Cling Stamp Set in Cajun Craze Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I colored the image in using my Cajun Craze Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I punched the pumpkin out using the Apple Builder Punch.  I also punched the stem out of a tiny scrap of Early Espresso cardstock and adhered it to the pumpkin using a Glue Dot.  I cut out the ‘Birthday Wishes’ sentiment from the Well Written Dies in Merry Merlot cardstock.

I adhered a Whisper White panel to a Cajun Craze mat using Snail.  I adhered the pumpkin to the Whisper White panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added the leaves under the pumpkin using Glue Dots.  I adhered the sentiment to the top of the Whisper White panel using my Fine Tip Glue Pen.  I adhered the artwork to the top portion of the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered 2 of the Merry Merlot leaves to the bottom ‘Doors’ of the card base using Glue Dots.  You can also see in the picture above how I adhered the DSP to the ‘doors’ of the card, with only leaving a border on 3 sides.

On the inside I stamped the leaf image from the Stampin’ Up Gather Together Photopolymer Stamp Set in Pretty Peacock Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel stamping off twice.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Colorful Seasons Photopolymer Stamp Set in Cajun Craze Ink on top of the leaf.  I stamped the 2 pumpkin images from the Gather Together stamp set in Cajun Craze Ink on a small Whisper White panel.  I colored the pumpkins in using my Cajun Craze Stampin’ Blends Markers and cut them out using the Gathered Leaves Dies.  I adhered the to the bottom of the Whisper White panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Pretty Peacock card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the small leaf image from the Colorful Seasons stamp set across the bottom of the envelope front in Cajun Craze, Pretty Peacock and Merry Merlot Inks.  I adhered a panel of the Come To Gather DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today for Fun Fold Friday.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up Home To Roost

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  Hope everyone is having a wonderful week.

For the card I made for today I went out of my comfort zone.  I was actually pretty pleased with how it turned out.  I’m not really into chickens or farming, but I said I was going to feature a different Sal-A-Bration item each day this week.  We’re getting down to the wire for getting free items.  Here is my card for today.

After I was done, I saw the Hand Stamped Sentiments sketch challenge #311 and thought that this might qualify.  Here is their sketch.

I started with a piece of the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper (FREE Sale-A-Bration item) and cut it into 1″ strips.  I adhered the DSP onto a Poppy Parade card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue so that I would have a little wiggle room to line the strips up.

I stamped the rooster from the Stampin’ Up Home To Roost Stamp Set (FREE Sale-A-Bration item) in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a small piece of Whisper White cardstock. I colored the rooster in using my Cajun Craze, Mango Melody, Poppy Parade, Pumpkin Pie and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers.  Then using my Big Shot, I cut the image out with my Layering Ovals Framelits Dies.  I also cut out the scalloped oval that was just a little larger in Poppy Parade cardstock.  I adhered the artwork to the scalloped oval using Multipurpose Liquid Glue then to my card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the flower from the Stampin’ Up Colorful Seasons Stamp Set in Poppy Parade Ink.  I stamped the flowers 4 times without reinking to get the Ombre effect.  I cut the flowers out with my Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies and my Big Shot.  I adhered the flowers to the right side of the artwork using Glue Dots and Mini Stampn’ Dimensionals.  I stamped the sentiment from the Home To Roost stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a strip of Vellum paper and adhered it over the artwork using Glue Dots.  I adhered the card front to a Poppy Parade card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the grassy image from the Home To Roost stamp set in Old Olive Ink, stamping off twice, to a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink above the grass.  I adhered some more of the flowers I had stamped and cut out using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Poppy Parade card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the grass and the rooster from the Home To Roost stamp set on the front of the envelope in Old Olive and Tuxedo Black Memento Inks.  I adhered a piece of the Botanical Butterfly DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for taking the time to stop by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try.  This card used 2 of the FREE Sale-A-Bration items that are available with a $50 order.  Sale-A-Bration ends on Sunday, so don’t delay.  Happy Stamping!!
