Stampin’ Up! Best Day

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends and welcome to the weekend. I hope you have some fun plans even if it’s taking time for you to relax and craft.

I have a quick card today with an adorable fat cat. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Best Day Cling Stamp Set and the Dandy Designs Sale-a-bration Designer Series Paper for my card today. You can earn this paper FREE with a qualifying order of $100 or more. Ask me how!!

I started by adhering a panel of Dandy Designs DSP to a Fresh Freesia mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to a Gorgeous Grape card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the cupcake cat image from Best Day stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I cut the image using the 5th largest Stitched Rectangle Dies. I colored the image using my Fresh Freesia, Pale Papaya and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the sentiment from the Best Day stamp set on the top of the panel in Tuxedo Black Ink. I stamped the streamer image from the Best Day stamp set in Fresh Freesia Ink.

I adhered the artwork to a Fresh Freesia mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to a Gorgeous Grape mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Glossy Dots Assortment to the card front.

On the inside, I stamped the cake image from the Best Day stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image using my fresh Freesia and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Fresh Freesia mat then to the inside of the Gorgeous Grape card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the sparklers image from the Best Day stamp set across the bottom front of the envelope in Tuxedo Black Ink and the streamers on the top in Fresh Freesia Ink. I adhered a panel of Dandy Designs DSP to the envelope flap.

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

Stampin’ Up! Adorable Owls Baby Card

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends and welcome to the weekend. Hope you have some fun plans and are staying warm. I’ll be at work all day today. I didn’t get much de-Christmasing done yesterday, after Coraline’s training I think I was more tired than her LOL. We were practicing on and off all day with things I learned. I asked the trainer who was being trained, Coraline or me, she laughed and said me.

I have some babies coming this year and one that has already been born, so I thought I should get to work with making baby cards. I don’t have a baby set, so I used one of the Sale-a-brations sets. This set is available for free with a qualifying order of $50 during Sale-a-bration. My card used just Stamps, Ink and Paper today. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Adorable Owls Baby 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Adorable Owls Sale-a-bration Cling Stamp Set, the Stampin’ Up! Charming Sentiments Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Dandy Designs Sale-a-bration Designer Series Paper for my card today.

My design is from my upline, Jaimie, that is giving us sketch challenges each week.

Stampin' Up! Adorable Owls Baby 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by adhering a panel of Dandy Designs DSP to a Night of Navy mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to a Balmy Blue card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Adorable Owls Baby 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the owl image from the Adorable Owls stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image using my Balmy Blue, Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Flirty Flamingo and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Night of Navy mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Adorable Owls Baby 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a strip of Night of Navy cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Charming Sentiments stamp set in Versamark Ink. I sprinkled the sentiment with White Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using a Stampin’ Dimensional and Stampin’ Seal. I added a few Opaque Adhesive-Backed Gems to the card front.

Stampin' Up! Adorable Owls Baby 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside, I stamped the sentiments from the Charming Sentiments stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on a Basic Whtie panel. I adhered a strip of Dandy Designs DSP to the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic Whtie panel to a Night of Navy mat then to the inside of the Balmy Blue card base.

Stampin' Up! Adorable Owls Baby 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the owl image from the Adorable Owls stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and colored the image the same as I did for the card. I stamped the sentiment from the Adorable Owls stamp set in Night of Navy Ink above the owl. I adhered a panel of Dandy Designs DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Adorable Owls for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my last Fun Fold Friday for 2022. Another year gone (and I won’t miss this one), and a new one starting on Sunday. Has anyone made plans yet for New Year’s Eve? I’m pretty sure we’ll be spending it at home. I’m not sure if we’re having company or not yet.

Today’s card is one that I haven’t done in a while, and I really like doing. Sorry I missed doing my live on Wednesday again. I’m usually out of work by noon on Wednesday’s and when 2pm came around and I was still there, I just knew there was no way I was going to be able to go live. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Adorable Owls Fun Fold 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Adorable Owls Sale-a-bration Cling Stamp Set and the Dandy Design Sale-a-bration Designer Series Paper for my card today. Both items will be available starting January 5, FREE, with qualifying order.

Stampin' Up! Adorable Owls Fun Fold 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by cutting my card base by putting the short edge of the cardstock on the bottom of the Paper Trimmer lined up at the 3″ mark on my Paper Trimmer. I placed the blade at the 3″ mark and cut to 3/4″. I turned the cardstock in the Paper Trimmer, so the long edge was on the bottom lined up at the 3″ mark. I cut from the cut line (which is at 2 1/2″) up to the 5″ mark. I carefully flipped the cut panel around and folded it down.

Stampin' Up! Adorable Owls Fun Fold 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

I cut a panel of Coastal Cabana cardstock by lining up the long-left side of the paper at the 3/4″ mark on my Paper Trimmer. I cut down 3″. I turned the cardstock so the long edge was on the bottom of the Paper Trimmer lined up at the 3″ mark and I cut down to cut the panel off. I cheated for the Dandy Design DSP since no one can see it. I lined up the DSP on the Coastal Cabana mat and using my pencil I drew a line where it needed to be cut and cut the panel off. I adhered the Dandy Design DSP to the Coastal Cabana mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue making sure there was equal mat around the 3 sides. I adhered the layered panel to the card front, under the cut panel, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I used a couple Stampin’ Dimensionals to hold the flipped panel in place.

Stampin' Up! Adorable Owls Fun Fold 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the flying owl image from the Adorable Owls stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image using my Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Flirty Flamingo, Pool Party and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the sentiment from the Adorable Owls stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the corner of the panel. I adhered the artwork to a Coastal Cabana mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few of the new Opaque Adhesive-Backed Gems, which will be available January 5, to the card front.

Stampin' Up! Adorable Owls Fun Fold 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Adorable Owl stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I blocked off the bottom of the sentiment, so I just got the top portion using washi tape. I adhered a strip of the Dandy Design DSP to the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic Whtie panel to a Coastal Cabana mat then to the inside of the Pool Party card base.

Stampin' Up! Adorable Owls Fun Fold 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the owl image from the Adorable Owls stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and colored it the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of Dancy Design DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin' Up! Adorable Owls Fun Fold 7 creativestampingdesigns.com

Stampin’ Up! Thanks A Bunch Pocket Card

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. We’re halfway through the week and on our way to the weekend. Can you believe there are only 11 days until Christmas. I guess I should get moving with getting my Christmas cards mailed, do some shopping and get my cookie trays put together.

Today’s card is one that we made last night for Mystery Stamping during our team meeting. We were given measurements of cardstock and DSP to pre-cut and then we were talked through putting it together. Everyone’s cards were similar, but at the same time different. I always look forward to out Mystery Stamping. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Thanks A Bunch Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Dandy Designs Designer Series Paper. Both items will be available January 5 FREE with a qualifying order during Sale-a-bration. The stamp set is free with a $50 order and the huge pack of Dandy Designs DSP is free with a $100 order.

I started by adhering a panel of Dandy Designs DSP to a Basic White mat. I adhered layered panel to a Calypso Coral card base using a very thin bead of Multipurpose Liquid Glue only on the 2 sides and bottom of the panel.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the large carrot image from the Thanks A Bunch stamp set. I stamped the detail image in Calypso Coral Ink 3 times. I stamped the full carrot image in Calypso Coral Ink, stamping off on scrap paper once, over the detailed image. I stamped the carrot top leaf image from the Thanks A Bunch stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink 3 times. I fussy cut the images using my Paper Snips. I adhered the leafy image to the top of the carrots using Glue Dots. I adhered the carrots to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment from the Thanks A Bunch stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink on the Basic White panel. I cut the sentiment out using the Stylish Shapes Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

For the inside panel, I stamped the sentiments from the Thanks A Bunch stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink on a Basic White Thick panel. I stamped the smallest bunch of carrot image from the Thanks A Bunch stamp set in Calypso Coral Ink on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the leafy carrot top in Granny Apple Green Ink on top of the carrots. I folded the small panel of Dandy Designs DSP in half and adhered it to the top of the panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I added Iridescent Pastel Gems to the card front and the pull tab.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the carrot image from the Thanks A Bunch stamp set in Calypso Coral Ink on the envelope front the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of Dandy Designs DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you like my card and might have this on your free shopping list for January 5th. Happy Stamping!!

If you need any stamping supplies, I’d love to be your Demonstrator. Just click HERE to go directly to my online store or drop me an email if you have any questions. 

MY CURRENT HOST CODE IS:   7PTW7A3H

Use this host code when placing an order with me. When you order $50 or greater you will receive a free gift from me! If your order is over $150, please do not use this code, but you’ll still get the free gift. The free gift is your choice of any 1 item valued up to $10.00 from the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog or the July – December 2022 Mini Catalog!  Unfortunately packs of cardstock are no longer an option for a free gift. Shipping has become too expensive to ship and it’s costing me as much to ship as the cardstock costs. For any orders $50 or more I will also send you my monthly class tutorials.  Click HERE or go to my Customer Rewards for more details and to see what this month’s tutorials are.

Please remember to use my current Host Code and make sure that you can see my name on the final checkout page listed as your Demonstrator when you order so that you know that you’re ordering with me and you’ll get my rewards! 

Happy Stamping, Karen

*********************************************************************************************************

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.
