Stampin’ Up! Island Vibes Special Moments

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends and welcome to the weekend. I hope you have some fun plans. It’s going to be a chilly one here. My walk to work will be a very quick one, I tend to walk faster when it’s cold outside.

Today and tomorrow’s cards use some Sale-a-bration items again. I can’t believe that Sale-a-bration will be ending in just a little over 3 weeks. Make sure you get those orders in so that you get all the free items you were hoping for. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Sale-a-bration Island Vibes Cling Stamp Set along with the Stampin’ Up! Sale-a-bration Special Moments Photopolymer Stamp Set for my card today.

I started by stamping the leaf image from the Island Vibes stamp set in Just Jade Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the sentiment from the Special Moments stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the top of the panel. I embossed the panel using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder.

I adhered the Basic White panel to a Cinnamon Cider mat and then to a Just Jade mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to a Basic White Thick card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the potted plant image from the Island Vibes stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image using my Cinnamon Cider, Crumb Cake and Just Jade Stampin’ Blends Markers. I fussy cut the image using my Paper Snips and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Eden’s Garden Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the leaf image from the Island Vibes stamp set in Just Jade Ink on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Just Jade mat and 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 leaf image from the Island Vibes stamp set in Just Jade Ink on the envelope front and flap. I stamped the potted plant image from the Island Vibes stamp set in Tuxedo Black and colored it the same as for the card.

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

Stampin’ Up! Eden’s Garden Paneled Hello

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. We’re halfway through the week and on our way to a New Year!!! How does everyone celebrate bringing in the New Year? It’ll be a quiet one at my house again I believe.

Today’s card features the gorgeous Ever Eden Specialty Designer Series Paper that will be going away on Monday January 3,2022, that’s in just 5 more days. You might want to grab a pack or 2 (or 3) if you haven’t gotten yours yet. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Eden’s Garden Cling Stamp Set along with the Ever Eden DSP for my card today.

I started by cutting and adhering 3 equal strips of the Ever Eden DSP and adhering them to an Evening Evergreen card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, so I had a little wiggle room. I adhered the panel to a gold mat from the Brushed Metallic Paper.

I wrapped a piece of Evening Evergreen 3/8″ Open Weave Ribbon around the layered panel and tied a small bow. I adhered the layered panel to an Evening Evergreen card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the floral image from the Eden’s Garden stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink. I stamped the sentiment from the Eden’s Garden stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink over the floral image. I cut the image our using my Layering Circle Dies and adhered it over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Garden Gems, which will also be going away January 3, 2022, to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the floral image from the Eden’s Garden stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the sentiment from the Eden’s Garden stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink on top of the floral image. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Soft Succulent mat and then to the inside of the Evening Evergreen card base.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the floral image from the Eden’s Garden stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the Ever Eden 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! Eden’s Garden 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 my blog. This week we have a Sketch Challenge. I can’t wait to see what everyone has created this week. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects. Here is my card using this weeks Sketch.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Eden’s Garden Cling Stamp Set along with the Ever Eden Specialty Designer Series Paper for my card today.

This is our sketch for this week.

I started by adhering a panel of the Ever Eden DSP to an Evening Evergreen card base. I adhered a smaller panel of the Ever Eden DSP to a Gold Foil mat and then to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I made my own background paper by stamping the leaf images from the Eden’s Garden stamp set in Evening Evergreen and Soft Succulent Inks randomly on the panel. I adhered the panel to a Gold Foil mat which I cut using my Stitched Rectangle Dies. I wrapped a piece of Evening Evergreen 3/8″ Open Weave Ribbon around the panel and tied a bow. I adhered the panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Soft Succulent cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Eden’s Garden stamp set and cut it our using my Stitched So Sweetly Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Garden Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Biggest Wish Photopolymer Stamp Set in Evening Evergreen and Soft Succulent Inks on a Basic White panel. I randomly stamped the leaf images from the Eden’s Garden stamp set in Evening Evergreen and Soft Succulent Inks around the sentiment. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Soft Succulent mat and then to the inside of the Evening Evergreen card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the leaf images from the Eden’s Garden stamp set in Evening Evergreen & Soft Succulent Inks on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of Ever Eden DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for visiting 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 all our projects today.

Stampin’ Up! Eden’s Garden Hello

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone’s weekend going? I’m actually getting more rest than I’ve probably gotten in over 20 years. Not being able to breathe will do that to you. Fingers crossed I’m better by tomorrow. We have our in-person team meeting today and I’m so looking forward to it. I just love getting to see all my team members in person even if it’s through zoom.

I have a fairly quick card for you today using a set that will be available in the January-June 2022 Mini Catalog, but you can purchase it now. Before I forget, if you are a customer of mine, your catalogs went out in the mail yesterday. Keep a watch out for them!! Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Eden’s Garden Cling Stamp Set along with the Ever Eden Specialty Designer Series Paper for my card today.

My colors are from Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge #378.

I started by adhering a panel of Ever Eden DSP to a Merry Merlot card base. The Ever Eden DSP is only available while supplies last. It will not be in the new Mini Catalog, so grab it while it’s still available.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the large floral image from the Eden’s Garden stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink. I stamped the sentiment from the Eden’s Garden stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink next to the floral image. I embossed the panel using the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder.

From a panel of Merry Merlot cardstock I cut a mat using the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. I adhered the artwork to the mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Garden Gems to the artwork. The Garden Gems are also only while supplies last and will not be in the new Mini Catalog.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Eden’s Garden stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the large floral image from the Eden’s Garden stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Merry Merlot mat and then to the inside of the Merry Merlot card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the large floral image from the Eden’s Garden stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of Ever Eden 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. If you are loving this Ever Eden DSP as much as I am, you might want to grab it before it sells out along with the beautiful Garden Gems. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Eden’s Garden Fun Fold 2

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends. How has your weekend started off? I hope you have something fun planned.

Those of you that know me, know that I never make 2 cards exactly the same. It’s just how I roll. On my live video Wednesday I was letting everyone decide what color to emboss the sentiment on the front. Most said gold, but I really wanted to see it in white also. So, today’s card is the exact same card I made for my Facebook Live on Wednesday afternoon except I used some different DSP and I embossed it in White. I posted the card yesterday with all the directions and measurements. You can see it Here. Since everything is listed, I’m not giving the directions again. I’ve also attached the links for my videos on the bottom so you can stamp along with it. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Eden’s Garden Cling Stamp Set along with the Ever Eden Specialty Designer Series Paper and Ever Eden Cotton Paper for my card today.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. If you do CASE this card, please feel free to post it in the comments of my Facebook page under the post. I’d love to see your take on the card. The list of measurements are below if you’d like to stamp along while watching the video. You can watch my video on my Facebook page Here.

You can also view the video on my YouTube channel Here. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Eden’s Garden for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends. Welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Does anyone have plans for the weekend? I’ll be working all day tomorrow at the dog bakery and all day Sunday at the hardware store.

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’s my card for today.

I used the new Stampin’ Up! Eden’s Garden Cling Stamp Set for my fun fold today. This suite will be available to customers on November 2nd. The DSP will be while supplies last.

I started by scoring and folding 2 card bases. I scored a Soft Succulent 8 1/2″ x 4 1/4″ card base at 5 1/2″. I scored an Evening Evergreen 8″ X 3″ card base at 4″. I adhered panels of Ever Eden Specialty Designer Series Paper to Evening Evergreen mats. I adhered the larger layered panel to the inside of the Soft Succulent card base.

I adhered the smaller layered panel to the Soft Succulent card base front.

I embossed a panel of the Ever Eden Cotton Paper using the Meadow Moments Embossing Folder. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Eden’s Garden stamp set in Versamark Ink on the embossed panel. I immediately sprinkled it with Gold Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I adhered the embossed panel to a Soft Succulent mat and then to the front of the Evening Evergreen card base. I added a few Brushed Metallic Dots to the embossed panel.

On the inside I stamped the large floral image from the Eden’s Garden stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink, stamping off once, on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the sentiment from the Eden’s Garden stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink over the floral image. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Soft Succulent mat then to the inside of the Evening Evergreen card base. I adhered the Evening Evergreen card base to the center of the inside of the Soft Succulent card base, facing the opposite direction.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the sprig image from the Eden’s Garden stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of Ever Eden Specialty 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. If you do CASE this card, please feel free to post it in the comments of my Facebook page under the post. I’d love to see your take on the card. The list of measurements are below if you’d like to stamp along while watching the video. You can watch my video on my Facebook page Here.
