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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Stampin’ Up! Apple Harvest for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Has anyone made any plans for the long weekend yet? I’ll be working all day tomorrow, but only half day Sunday, so I’ll get most of the day to do something.

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.

Stampin' Up! Apple Harvest Fun Fold 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Apple Harvest Bundle along with the Gingham Cottage Designer Series Paper for my card today. This bundle will only be available until September 30, 2022. The stamp set is in the July -December 2022 Mini Catalog, but you will really want the dies to go with it. There are 25 dies in the pack and it’s an awesome pack of dies that you will absolutely love to have with the stamp set. Grab it while it’s available as a bundle and save yourself 10%.

I played along with the Creative Creases Challenge #41.

Stampin' Up! Apple Harvest Fun Fold 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by stamping the apples on the branch image from the Apple Harvest stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Basic Whtie cardstock. I cut the image using the Apple Blossoms Dies. I cut 7 of the small flowers dies from the Apple Blossoms Dies from the same panel of Basic White cardstock. I colored the image in using my Grann Apple Green, Poppy Parade, Soft Suede and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers. Using the Apple Blossom Dies I cut 8 of the flower centers from a panel of Flirty Flamingo cardstock, 10 leaves from a panel of Granny Apple Green cardstock and 2 branches from a panel of Soft Suede Cardstock.

Stampin' Up! Apple Harvest Fun Fold 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

Using the 3rd largest Deckled Rectangle Die I cut a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the small background image from the Apple Harvest stamp set in Poppy Parade Ink a few times where I was going to adhere the dies. I adhered the large colored die using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the leaves to the branches using tiny drops of Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the branches just under the apple branch image using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the flower centers to the flowers using tiny amounts of Multipurpose Liquid Glue and adhered the flowers to the branches using Glue Dots. I adhered the artwork to a Poppy Parade mat.

Stampin' Up! Apple Harvest Fun Fold 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

I adhered a panel of Gingham Cottage DSP to a Poppy Parade Mat. I adhered the layered panel to the Basic Whtie card front. I adhered the layered artwork to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I stamped the sentiment from the Apple Harvest stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I cut the sentiment out using the Apple Blossoms Dies and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

Stampin' Up! Apple Harvest Fun Fold 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

I scored the Basic White Thick card base at 1 3/8″ & 2 3/4″ flipped the panel over and scored at 1 3/8″ & 2 3/4″ on the other end. I folded the 2 3/4″ score lines in and folded the 1 3/8″ score lines out. I adhered a panel of Gingham Cottage DSP to a Poppy Parade mat. I adhered the layered panel to the right folded panel. I adhered the layered card front to the left folded panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On the inside, I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Through It Together Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the apple image from the Apple Harvest stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom of the panel. I colored the image using the Granny Apple Green, Poppy Parade, Soft Suede and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Poppy Parade mat, then to the inside of the Basic White Thick card base.

Stampin' Up! Soft Seedlings Pink 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Soft Seedlings Cling Stamp Set for my card today.

Here is our Theme for this week.

Stampin' Up! Soft Seedlings Pink 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by embossing a panel of Blushing Bride cardstock using the Timber 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the embossed panel to a Blushing Bride card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue

Stampin' Up! Soft Seedlings Pink 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the large leaf image from the Soft Seedlings stamp set. I inked up the stamp with Blushing Bride Ink then using my Sponge Dauber, I added some Soft Suede Ink along the edges. I cut the image out using my Deckled Rectangle Dies. I stamped the sentiment from the Soft Seedlings stamp set along the bottom in Soft Suede Ink.

Stampin' Up! Soft Seedlings Pink 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

I adhered the artwork to a Soft Suede mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to the Blushing Bride card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I tied a small bow with Linen Thread and added it to the leaf stem using a Glue Dot. I added a few Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

Stampin' Up! Soft Seedlings Pink 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Soft Seedlings stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the seedling image from the Soft Seedlings stamp set on the top of the panel. I inked the stamp first with Blushing Bride Ink then using my Sponge Dauber I added Soft Suede Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Blushing Bride mat and then to the inside of the Blushing Bride card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the large leaf image from the Soft Seedlings stamp set on the envelope front inking it up the same as for the card. I stamped the seedling image from the Soft Seedlings stamp set on the envelope flap inking the stamp the same as for the card.

Stampin’ Up! Merriest Moments

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. I hope you are all having a great weekend and I hope you have tomorrow off too.

Today I made a fairly quick Christmas card using a set that was returned from last year’s July-December Mini Catalog. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Merriest Moments 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Merriest Moments Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Painted Christmas Designer Series Paper for my card today.

Stampin' Up! Merriest Moments 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by adhering a panel of Painted Christmas DSP to a Basic White Thick card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Merriest Moments 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the flower image from the Merriest Moments stamp set in Blushing Bride Ink, the sentiment and holly leaf image in Shaded Spruce Ink, and the splatter and flower center images in Soft Sea Foam Ink. I cut the flower and holly leaf images out using the Merriest Frames Dies and the sentiment using the Deckled Rectangle Die.

Stampin' Up! Merriest Moments 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

I adhered a piece of the Rose Gold & White 5/8″ Striped Ribbon to the card front using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the sentiment to a Shaded Spruce mat and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the flowers and holly leaves using Glue Dots, Stampin’ Dimensionals and Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I added a few Adhesive-Backed Sequins & Gems to the card front.

On the inside, I adhered a panel of Painted Christmas DSP to the inside of the Basic White Thick card base. On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Merriest Moments stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink. I cut the panel using the Deckled Rectangle Dies. I stamped the flower, holly leaf and splatter images on the panel in Blushing Bride, Shaded Spruce and Soft Sea Foam Inks. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the flower, holly leaves and splatter images from the Merriest Moments stamp set in Blushing Bride, Shaded Spruce and Soft Sea Foam Inks on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of Painted Christmas DSP to the envelope flap.

I cut the panel stamped with the Garden Green image using my Deckled Rectangle Dies. I stamped the sentiment from the Lovely & Lasting stamp set on the top of the panel in Garden Green Ink.

Stampin’ Up! Perched In A Tree

Good Monday morning my stamping friends and welcome to a new week. How was everyone’s weekend?

I played with a new set from the July-December Mini Catalog. This set I wasn’t sure about, but once I started playing with it, I really like it. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Perched In A Tree Bundle along with the Texture Chic Specialty Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by adhering a panel of Texture Chic DSP to a Soft Succulent card base. On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the branch image and sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Perched In A Tree Cling Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink. I stamped the bird image in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the branch using my Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends Markers. I colored the bird image using my Crumb Cake, Pale Papaya and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers. I used my Stampin’ Blends Color Lifter to remove some of the Smoky Slate In from the bird.

I cut the images out using my Aspen Tree Dies and the smallest Deckled Rectangle Die for the sentiment. I cut the leaf dies from the Aspen Tree Dies from panels of Mango Melody, Petal Pink and Pool Party cardstock. I cut the detailed leaf dies from the Chic Dies from a panel of Texture Chic DSP.

I adhered the branch using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the bird on the branch using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the large leaf and the details leaves using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and the smaller leaves using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the sentiment using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Perched In A Tree stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the bird image from the Perched In A Tree stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom of the panel. I colored the bird the same as I did for the card front. I adhered the Basic Whtie panel to a Soft Succulent mat and then to the inside of the Soft Succulent card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the bird image from the Perched In A Tree stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I colored the bird the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of Texture Chic 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! Sweetest Cherries 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 Sketch Challenge. Here is my card using this week’s Sketch.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Sweetest Cherries Bundle along with the Stampin’ Up! Biggest Wish Photopolymer Stamp Set for my card today.

This is our sketch for this week.

I started by stamping the basket weave image from the Stampin’ Up! Sweetest Cherries Photopolymer Stamp Set on a Crumb Cake card base in Crumb Cake Ink. I cut a panel of Basic White cardstock using the 2nd largest Deckled Rectangle Die. I stamped the sentiments from the Sweetest Cherries stamp set in Blushing Bride and Merry Merlot Inks on the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Mint Macaron panel, which I cut using the 2nd largest Deckled Rectangle Die, on an angle using Stampin’ Seal.

On a strip of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the cherry image from the Sweetest Cherries stamp set in Merry Merlot Ink 3 times. On another strip of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the leaf image from the Sweetest Cherries stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink 6 times. On a thin strip of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the stem image from the Sweetest Cherries stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink 3 times. I punched all the images our using my Cherry Builder Punch. I adhered the stems to the back of the cherries using Glue Dots. I adhered the 1st cherry to the layered panel using Glue Dots and adhered the leaves to the stem using Glue Dots. I adhered the other 2 cherries to the layered panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals and the leaves using Stampin’ Dimensionals or Glue Dots.

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 Biggest Wish stamp set in Blushing Bride and Merry Merlot Inks on a Basic White panel. I stamped the cherry image from the Sweetest Cherries stamp set on the bottom of the panel in Merry Merlot Ink. I stamped the stem in Crumb Cake Ink and the leaves in Mint Macaron Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Mint Macaron mat and then to the inside of the Crumb Cake card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the cherry images from the Sweetest Cherries stamp set on the envelope front the same as I did for the card. I stamped the basket weave image from the Sweetest Cherries stamp set on the envelope flap in Crumb Cake Ink.

Thank you for stopping by 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! Friends Are Like Seashells for The Card Concepts

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends.  I hope everyone is having a productive week. We’re halfway through and on our way to the weekend. It’s been gorgeous here for the past week, sunny and perfect temp.

It’s time for another inspiration challenge for The Card Concepts. The inspiration photo is By The Sea. Here is my card that was inspired from the challenge photo.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Friends Are Like Seashells Photopolymer Stamp Set for my clean and layered card today.

I hope you will take a moment to visit The Card Concepts and join us for our challenge #178.  How are you inspired by this photo?

I played along with the Alphabet Challenge ‘F is for Friendship’.

I started by stamping the shell images from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink on a Shimmery White panel. I cut the image out using the largest die from the Seaside Seashells Dies. I them embossed the panel using the Seashells 3D Embossing Folder.

I lined up a panel of Pool Party cardstock with the front of a Basic White Thick card base and using the 2nd largest die from the Deckled Rectangle Dies, I cut both panels together. I put a think bead of Multipurpose Liquid Glue along the edge of the front of the Basic Whtie Thick card base and adhered the die cut shells. I adhered the Pool Party frame over the die cut panel, making sure it lined up with the card base, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. Using my Blending Brush and Balmy Blue Ink, I added color to a panel of Vellum Paper. I adhered the panel of inked Vellum to the inside front of the Basic White Thick card base with the inked side against the die cut image.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sand dollar image from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper. I stamped the sentiment from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set over the sand dollar image in Sahara Sand Ink. I cut the image out using the coordinating die from the Seaside Seashells Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I tied a small double bow using the Crumb Cake bakers twine from the Bakers Twine Essential Pack and adhered it to the card front using a Glue Dot. I added a few Solid Faceted Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the star fish image from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper, on the top of the panel. I stamped the seaweed images form the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Pool Party Ink along the bottom of the panel, some stamped full strength and some stamped off once. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Pool Party mat and then to the inside of the Basic White Thick card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the sand, shells and seaweed images from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set on the bottom front of the envelope and the envelope flap in Crumb Cake, Pool Party and Sahara Sand Inks.

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

Stampin’ Up! Happy Hedgehogs 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 Theme Challenge. Here is my card using this week’s Theme.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Happy Hedgehogs Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Design A Daydream Designer Series Paper and the 2022-2024 In-Color 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my card today.

Here is our theme for this week.

I started by adhering a panel of Design A Daydream DSP to a Mint Macaron card base. I adhered a strip of the 2022-2024 In-Color DSP to the card front.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the hedgehog image from the Happy Hedgehogs stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I masked the image using the Stampin’ Up! Masking Paper and stamped the tree image from the Happy Hedgehogs stamp set over the hedgehog image in tuxedo Black Ink. I stamped the butterfly image from the Happy Hedgehogs stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the hedgehogs’ nose. I colored the images using my Crumb Cake, Flirty Flamingo, Ivory, Mint Macaron, Pale Papaya, Soft Suede, Soft Succulent, So Saffron and Sweet Sorbet Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image our using the 4th largest Deckled Rectangle Dies. I adhered the image to a Pale Papaya mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Happy Hedgehogs stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I cut the sentiment out using the smallest Deckled Rectangle Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the top of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Fine Sparkle Adhesive-Backed Gems (available July 1st) to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Happy Hedgehogs stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the mushroom and bird images from the Happy Hedgehogs stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom of the panel. I colored the images in using my Calypso Coral, Crumb Cake, Pale Papaya, Soft Succulent, Soft Suede, So Saffron and Sweet Sorbet Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Mint Macaron mat and then to the inside of the Mint Macaron card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the hedgehog and butterfly images from the Happy Hedgehogs stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I colored the images in using my Crumb Cake, Flirty Flamingo, Ivory and Sweet Sorbet Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of Design A Daydream DSP to the envelope flap.
