Stampin’ Up! Decorative Borders CAS Birthday

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend? Did anyone do anything fun or maybe just took time to relax? I worked all day on Saturday and Sunday I took some time in my craft area.

Today’s card is a super simple Clean and Simple card. My design is from my upline Jaimie. She’s giving us a new sketch challenge each week. Having a sketch sometimes in front of you can make the card process go so much faster. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Decorative Borders CAS 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Decorative Borders Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Stampin’ Up! Inspired Thoughts Cling Stamp Set for my card today.

This is our sketch for the week to work with.

Stampin' Up! Decorative Borders CAS 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by cutting the largest circle from the Layering Circles Dies out of a panel of Masking Paper. I placed the Masking Paper on a Basic White card front. Using my Blending Brush, I added Fresh Freesia Ink only on the inside of the circle. I removed the Masking Paper.

I stamped the floral image from the Decorative Borders stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink around the inked circle image.

I stamped the sentiment from the Inspired Thoughts stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink next to the floral image. I adhered the card front to a Basic Black mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to a Fresh Freesia card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Brushed Brass Butterflies to the card front.

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Inspired Thoughts stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the loral image from the Decorative Borders stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink next to the sentiment. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Basic Black mat then to the inside of the Fresh Freesia card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the floral image from the Decorative Borders stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of Butterfly Kisses 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper 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 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! Decorative Borders Biggest Wish for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday afternoon my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. I’m a little late today, but better late than never. We are 2 days away from Christmas, are you all ready. I have a couple dinner/dessert preps to take care of later today. If I haven’t bought it yet, it’s not getting bought. Between my husband and daughter, they are taking card of most of the wrapping. I’m having a lot of trouble with my shoulder again and I can’t lift my arm at all. 3rd time the rotator cuff has torn, and they don’t know if they can fix it yet. Luckily that doesn’t affect my card making LOL. Making cards I only really move the bottom of my arm and don’t really have to do much lifting and if I do that’s what my left arm is for.

I have a super simple fun fold today using products from the Annual Catalog and a set coming in the January – April 2023 Mini Catalog. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Decorative Borders Biggest Wish 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Biggest Wish Photopolymer Stamp Set, the Stampin’ Up! Decorative Borders Photopolymer Stamp Set (available Jan 5, 2023) and the Stampin’ Up! Charming Sentiments Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Design A Daydream Host Designer Series Paper for my card today.

Stampin' Up! Decorative Borders Biggest Wish 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by adhering a panel of Design A Daydream DSP to the front panel of the Mint Macaron card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Decorative Borders Biggest Wish 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

I cut a panel of Basic White cardstock using the 3rd largest Scallop Contours Dies. I stamped the flower image from the Decorative Borders stamp set along the bottom of the die cut panel in Tuxedo Black Ink. I stamped the Happy from the Biggest Wish stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink. I stamped the birthday sentiment from the Biggest Wish stamp set in Calypso Coral Ink over the Happy. I colored the flower image using my Calypso Coral, Mint Macaron and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers.

Stampin' Up! Decorative Borders Biggest Wish 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

I adhered the die cut panel to the left side of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals only of the left side of the panel. I added a few Iridescent Pastel Gems (available Jan 5, 2023) to the card front.

Stampin' Up! Decorative Borders Biggest Wish 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside, I adhered a panel of Design A Daydream DSP to the right side of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I stamped the sentiment from the Charming Sentiments stamp set in Calypso Coral Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the flower image from the Decorative Borders stamp set on the bottom of the panel in Tuxedo Black Ink on an angle. I colored the image using my Calypso Coral, Mint Macaron & So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to the inside of the Mint Macaron card base using Stampin’ Seal.

Stampin' Up! Decorative Borders Biggest Wish 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the border flower image from the Decorative Borders stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and colored it the same as for the card. I adhered a panel of Design A Daydream DSP to the envelope flap.
