Stampin’ Up! Queen Bee Birthday

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend? I hope you were able to do something fun. It was a gloomy one here in NJ.

Today’s card I played with one of my favorite sets from the new January-April 2023 Mini Catalog. I used it last Wednesday for my live and I think I had mentioned that I wasn’t sure I was going to like it alot. I do and I’ve been playing with it a lot. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Queen Bee Birthday 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Queen Bee Bundle, the Stampin’ Up! Inspired Thoughts Cling Stamp Set, Perfectly Penciled Designer Series Paper and Subtle 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my card today.

Stampin' Up! Queen Bee Birthday 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by adhering a panel of Perfectly Penciled DSP to a Basic White Thick card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered a panel of Subtle DSP to the card front on an angle using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I cut a panel of Basic White cardstock using the 2nd largest Deckled Rectangle Dies. I embossed the panel using the Hive 3D Embossing Folder. Using my Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker and the flicking technique, I added black ink on the embossed panel.

Stampin' Up! Queen Bee Birthday 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

I stamped the flower and small bee images from the Stampin’ Up! Queen Bee Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I cut the images using the Queen Bee Dies. I colored the flowers only using my So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers. Using the Queen Bee Dies, I cut the hives from a panel of Basic Black cardstock and the leaves and flowers from a panel of So Saffron cardstock. I adhered the floral image and small bee to the embossed panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Queen Bee Birthday 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiments from the Queen Bee stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I cut the sentiment out using the Queen Bee Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the embossed panel overlapping the flowers a little using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the die cut leaves under the sentiment using Glue Dots. I adhered the hives around the sentiment using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the flowers using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added Classic Matte Dots to the flower centers. I tied a small bow using the Black & White 1/4″ Gingham Ribbon and adhered it to the sentiment using a Glue Dot. I adhered the embossed panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Inspired Thoughts stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the floral and bee images from the Queen Bee stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the flowers using my So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers. I randomly stamped the newsprint image from the Queen Bee stamp set in So Saffron Ink on the Basic White panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a So Saffron mat then to the inside of the Basic White Thick card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the floral and bee images from the Queen Bee stamp set on the envelope front in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the flowers using my So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of Subtle DSP to the envelope flap.

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.

Stampin' Up! Sentimental Park 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

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.

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. We’re halfway through the week and on our way to the weekend already. Have you all gotten your orders place through the January-April 2023 Mini Catalog. My Double Creative Stamping Designs Rewards are ending tonight. If you haven’t gotten those order in, get them in while you can still earn my Double Rewards.

Today’s card I let the DSP do the work for me. This pack of DSP is just so gorgeous I wanted to let it shine. You can earn this pack of DSP FREE with a qualifying order of $50 or more during Sale-a-bration. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Dainty Delight Celebrate 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Dainty Delight Cling Stamp Set and the Dainty Flowers Sale-a-bration Designer Series Paper for my card today.

Stampin' Up! Dainty Delight Celebrate 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by adhering a panel of Dainty Flowers DSP to a Rich Razzleberry card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered a smaller piece of Dainty Flowers DSP to a Rich Razzleberry mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Dainty Delight Celebrate 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Dainty Delight Celebrate 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Rich Razzleberry cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Dainty Delight stamp set in Versamark Ink. I sprinkled it with my White Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I cut the sentiment using the smallest Deckled Rectangle Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I added a few Rhinestones Basic Jewels to the card front.

Stampin' Up! Dainty Delight Celebrate 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Dainty Delight stamp set in Rich Razzleberry Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I adhered a strip of the Dainty Flowers DSP to the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic Whtie panel to a Rich Razzleberry mat then to the inside of the Rich Razzleberry card base.

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! Cup of Tea Thank You

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends, welcome to the weekend and Merry Christmas Eve. We’re down to the final countdown till Santa arrives. I’ll be at work today waiting on those crazy people (like me) that waited till the last minute to go shopping. The good thing is, we’re closing the store at 2pm. In all the years I’ve worked here (38 to be exact) I’ve NEVER worked on Christmas Eve. I’m usually home prepping our 7 fish dinner. Things have changed a bit over the past couple years.

I have a fairly quick card for you today using items from the Annual Catalog. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Cup of Tea Thanks 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

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

My sketch is from Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge #404.

Stampin' Up! Cup of Tea Thanks 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by adhering 3 panels of Tea Boutique DSP to a Garden Green card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. ON a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the teacup image from the Cup of Tea stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I stamped the lemon slice from the Cup of Tea stamp set in Daffodil Delight Ink and the sentiment in Garden Green Ink. I cut the images out using the Teacup Dies. I colored the teacup using the Fresh Freesia and Parakeet Party Stampin’ Blends Markers.

Stampin' Up! Cup of Tea Thanks 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

I cut a panel of Basic White cardstock using the Deckled Rectangle Dies. I embossed the die cut panel using the Hive 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the panel to a Garden Green mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I wrapped a piece of Garden Green 3/8″ Ribbon from the Real Red and Garden Green Ribbon Combo Pack, around the layered panel and tied a bow.

Stampin' Up! Cup of Tea Thanks 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

I adhered a piece of White Bakers Twine from the Bakers Twine Essential Pack to the back of the teacup. I threaded it through the handle and adhered it to the back of the tag using a Glue Dot. I adhered the teacup to the layered panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the lemon slice using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Glossy Dots Assortment to the card front.

Stampin' Up! Cup of Tea Thanks 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Cup of Tea stamp set in Garden Green Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the teacup image from the Cup of Tea stamp set on the bottom of the panel in Tuxedo Black Ink and colored it using the Fresh Freesia and Parakeet Party Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the lemon slice next to the cup in Daffodil Delight Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Garden Green mat then to the inside of the Garden Green card base.

Stampin' Up! Cup of Tea Thanks 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the teacup image from the Cup of Tea stamp set on the envelope front in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image using my Fresh Freesia and Parakeet Party Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the lemon slice from the Cup of Tea stamp set next to the cup in Daffodil Delight Ink. I adhered a panel of Tea Boutique DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin' Up! Cup of Tea Thanks 7 creativestampingdesigns.com

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

I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas tomorrow and are able to spend some time with family and friends.

Stampin’ Up! Season of Chic Gift Card Holder

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends and welcome to the weekend. I hope you have some fun plans in the works. My plan was I had off all weekend and I was going to bake, bake, bake. As normal, plans change. I have to work at the dog bakery today, they were short staffed, and I don’t know how to say no. Yesterday I got most of my cookies mixed and 3 bar cookies baked off. If I’m not too tired when I get home from work today, I’ll mix the last couple batches and tomorrow morning I’ll be in the kitchen 7am baking. I need to get as much done as possible since my work schedule for the week is all over the place.

Today’s card was designed by one of my awesome team members Rosie Kean. We had our quarterly meeting last Sunday and Rosie was one of the presenters. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Season of Chic Gift Card Holder 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Season of Chic Bundle along with the Texture Chic Specialty Designer Series Paper for my card today.

Stampin' Up! Season of Chic Gift Card Holder 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started with the 5 1/4″ X 12″ panel of Texture Chic DSP and scored and folded it at 4″ & 8″. I cut the DSP panel from the top right corner to the bottom of the 2nd score line on an angle.

Stampin' Up! Season of Chic Gift Card Holder 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Season of Chic Photopolymer Stamp Set on a panel of Basic White cardstock in Evening Evergreen Ink. I cut the sentiment out using the Deckled Rectangle Die. I cut a panel of Soft Succulent cardstock using the next largest Deckled Rectangle Die. I adhered the Soft Succulent rectangle to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the sentiment rectangle to the Soft Succulent rectangle using Stampin’ Seal.

Stampin' Up! Season of Chic Gift Card Holder 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

I cut out multiple snowflakes from panels of Soft Succulent and White Glimmer Paper using the Chic Dies. I adhered the snowflakes to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and Glue Dots. I added Rhinestones Basic Jewels to the card front.

Stampin' Up! Season of Chic Gift Card Holder 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside, I folded and adhered the cut portion just on the left side using a small amount of Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I cut a panel of Basic White cardstock using the Deckled Rectangle Dies. I cut a panel of Soft Succulent cardstock using the next largest Deckled Rectangle Die. I stamped the sentiment from the Season of Chic stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink on the bottom of the Basic White rectangle. I stamped the snowflake image on the top of the panel in Soft Succulent Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to the Soft Succulent mat. I adhered the layered panel to the top of the inside of the card base. I added a few more of the die cut snowflakes to the inside using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the card base to a Basic White backing panel.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the snowflake image from the Season of Chic stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of Texture Chic 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 (excluding cardstock) 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.

I’m offering a Designer Series Paper share from the January-April 2023 Mini Catalog and I’d love to have you join!!  I’m placing my share order early on January 5 and I’m going to use the expedited shipping option so I should be able to have the shares cut, bundled and back out to you during the week of January 9.

How shares work:  I order full packs of all of the Designer Series Papers listed below, I cut them into 6″ x 6″ pieces (or 6″ x 12″ pieces for double shares) and give you one panel of each design from each pack on the list.  I pack up the paper in a cellophane bag and mail it back out to you just as quickly as I can!  Shares give you a good working sample of all of the papers so that you can decide which ones to order in full packs! Designer Series Paper Shares Do Not earn my Creative Stamping Designs Rewards.

Here are the Designer Series Paper Shares that I am offering from the new Mini Catalog:

New Designer Series Paper Share – $27.00 plus $8.00 for Priority Mail shipping

Double DSP Share – $54.00 + $8.00 Shipping by Priority Mail – I’ll cut the designer paper sheets into 6×12 so that you’ll be able to get three A2 size card fronts from each sheet (except for the By The Bay, Country Gingham, Fancy Flora and Regency Park, you’ll get double sheets of those since they’re already precut).

FREE Gift From Me! – As a bonus for joining my share, you’ll also get a sampler of the Sale-a-bration Designer Series Paper Packs!  I’ll send each participant in my share a sampler of papers from the Dainty Flowers, Day At The Farm, Favored Flowers and Dandy Designs Sale-a-bration DSP packs!

Stampin’ Up! Joyful Flurry for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends, HAPPY DECEMBER!!! Welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. If you are starting with me, thank you. I hope you will stop by everyone’s blog to see what they have created this week. If you are hopping over from Akiko’s blog, thank you for stopping by. This week we have Theme Challenge. Here is my card using this week’s Theme.

Stampin' Up! Joyful Flurry 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Joyful Flurry Bundle for my card today.

This is our theme for this week.

Stampin' Up! Joyful Flurry 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by randomly stamping the snowflake images from the Stampin’ Up! Joyful Flurry Cling Stamp Set in Versamark Ink all over the Starry Sky card front. I sprinkled the panel with Clear Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I adhered the card front to a Starry Sky card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Joyful Flurry 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Joyful Flurry stamp set in Starry Sky Ink. I used one of the snowflake dies that doesn’t completely cut out the image, from the Frosted Flurry Dies and cut above the sentiment. I cut the panel using my Deckled Rectangle Dies.

Stampin' Up! Joyful Flurry 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

I adhered the Basic White panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Iridescent Rhinestones Basic Jewels to the card front.

Stampin' Up! Joyful Flurry 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Joyful Flurry stamp set in Starry Sky Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the snowflake images from the Joyful Flurry stamp set in Starry Sky Ink, stamped off once or twice in the corners. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Starry Sky mat then to the inside of the Starry Sky card base.

Stampin' Up! Joyful Flurry 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic white Medium Envelope. I stamped the snowflake images from the Joyful Flurry stamp set in Starry Sky Ink on the envelope front and flap some stamped full strength and some stamped off.

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.

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! Framed & Festive CAS

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends and welcome to the weekend. I made it to Jacksonville yesterday. We had a wonderful dinner meeting up with all my team members. This morning I’m off to OnStage. By the time you read this I’ll be heading over to OnStage to check in and start the event. I can’t wait to see the new catalog.

Today I have the quickest and easiest card I think I’ve ever made. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Framed & festive CAS 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Framed & Festive Cling Stamp Set and the Whimsical Woodland 3D Embossing Folder for my card today.

Stampin' Up! Framed & festive CAS 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by embossing a Basic White card front using the Whimsical Woodland 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the embossed panel to a Basic White Thick card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Framed & festive CAS 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Framed & Festive stamp set in Tahitian Tide Ink. I cut the sentiment out using the Deckled Rectangle Dies.

Stampin' Up! Framed & festive CAS 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

I adhered a piece of the Balmy Blue 5/8″ Double Stitched Ribbon to the card front using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the sentiment over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Fine Sparkle Adhesive Backed Gems to the card front.

Stampin' Up! Framed & festive CAS 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside, I stamped the sentiments from the Framed & Festive stamp set in Tahitian Tide Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I adhered a strip of the 2022-2024 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to the inside of the Basic White Thick card base.

Stampin' Up! Framed & festive CAS 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

Stampin’ Up! Fond of Autumn for 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. I hope you will stop by everyone’s blog to see what they have created this week. If you are hopping over from Akiko’s blog, thank you for stopping by. This week we have Sketch Challenge. Here is my card using this week’s Sketch.

Stampin' Up! Fond of Autumn 1 creativestmpingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Fond of Autumn Bundle along with the Rustic Harvest Designer Series Paper for my card today.

Here’s our sketch for this week.

Stampin' Up! Fond of Autumn 2 creativestmpingdesigns.com

I started by adhering a panel of Rustic Harvest DSP to a Pumpkin Pie mat. I adhered the layered panel to a Mossy Meadow card base using Multipurpose Liquid Gue.

Stampin' Up! Fond of Autumn 3 creativestmpingdesigns.com

On the large panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the large image from the Stampin’ Up! Fond of Autumn Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink twice. I stamped the small acorn image from the Fond of Autumn stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink 3 times and the small leaf image 2 times. I cut the images out using the Autumn Bouquet Dies. I colored just the leaf/acorn images using my Mossy Meadow, Pumpkin Pie, Real Red and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the large leaf/acorn images to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Fond of Autumn 4 creativestmpingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Fond of Autumn stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink. I cut the sentiment out using the Deckled Rectangle Dies. I embossed the panel using the Leaf Fall 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the sentiment to a Pumpkin Pie mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added the small acorns and leaves to the sentiment using Glue Dots. I added a Brushed Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dot to the sentiment.

Stampin' Up! Fond of Autumn 5 creativestmpingdesigns.com

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Fond of Autumn stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the small acorn and leaf image from the Fond of Autumn stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink in the corners of the panel. I colored the images in using my Pumpkin Pie and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Pumpkin Pie mat then to the inside of the Mossy Meadow card base.

Stampin' Up! Fond of Autumn 6 creativestmpingdesigns.com

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the small acorn and leaf images from the Fond of Autumn stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I colored the images using my Pumpkin Pie and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of Rustic Harvest DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! All Bundled Up

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend? Saturday was beautiful here, then Sunday was overcast, and we had downpours at night. Our backyard was flooded for a bit.

I played with another new set for me from the July – December Mini Catalog for today’s card and kept it very simple. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! All Bundled Up 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! All Bundled Up Cling Stamp Set along with the Storybook Gnome Designer Series Paper for my card today.

My sketch is from the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge # 554.

Stampin' Up! All Bundled Up 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by adhering a panel of Storybook Gnome DSP to a Pool Party card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the adorable racoon image from the All Bundled Up stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image using my Bermuda Bay, Crumb Cake, Ivory, Pool Party and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the panel using the Deckled Rectangle Dies.

Stampin' Up! All Bundled Up 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

I stamped the sentiment from the All Bundled Up stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom of a Bermuda Bay panel. I adhered the sentiment panel to a Pool Party mat and then to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! All Bundled Up 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

I adhered the die cut racoon image to a Pool Party mat then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Adhesive-Backed Stars to the card front.

Stampin' Up! All Bundled Up 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the All Bundled Up stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the snowflake image around the sentiment in Pool Party Ink. I adhered a strip of Storybook Gnomes DSP to the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Bermuda Bay mat then to the inside of the Pool Party card base.

Stampin' Up! All Bundled Up 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the racoon image from the All Bundled Up stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and colored it the same as for the card. I stamped the snowflake image from the All Bundled Up stamp set in Pool Party Ink around the racoon. I adhered a panel of Storybook Gnome DSP to the envelope flap.

Available Now!!

Some things are great on their own but become epic when they are paired with something else: cereal and milk, toast and butter, Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. We may be biased, but our favorite combo is our stamp sets and dies—and that’s what the Perfect Partners promotion is all about! 

We created six new dies that coordinate with stamp sets in the 2022–2023 Annual Catalog and the July–December 2022 Mini Catalog. These coordinating dies will only be available during this promotion and will not be offered in any catalog.
