Stampin’ Up! Botanical Layers Paneled Card

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. I hope you are all doing well this weekend and doing something fun. I’m off to the races to watch my husband drive. I’m sure it’s going to be a blast.

Today and tomorrow’s cards are similar with a twist. I just love this design. My upline Jaimie had us make this a year ago at a mystery stamping. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Botanical Layers Paneled 1 creativestampingdesign.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Botanical Layers Cling Stamp Set along with the Sun Prints Designer Series Paper for my card today.

Stampin' Up! Botanical Layers Paneled 2 creativestampingdesign.com

I started by adhering a panel of Sun Prints DSP to a Basic White mat. I adhered the layered panel to a Starry Sky card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Botanical Layers Paneled 3 creativestampingdesign.com

On the 3″ X 4″ panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the images from the Botanical Layers stamp set in Blushing Bride, Gray Granite, Merry Merlot and Starry Sky Inks randomly. I embossed the panel using the Fern 3D Embossing Folder. I then cut the panel into 4 – 1″ strips. I adhered the strips to the 3 1/8″ X 4 1/4″ panel of Basic White cardstock. I adhered the layered panel to a Merry Merlot mat and then to the Starry Sky card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered a piece of Gray Granite 1/4″ Shimmer Ribbon to the layered panel using Stampin’ Seal. On a panel of Merry Merlot cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Botanical Layers stamp set in Versamark Ink. I sprinkled it with my White Embossing Powder from the Basic Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I cut the sentiment out using my Natural Prints Dies. I adhered the sentiment over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Heart Pearls to the card front.

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Botanical Layers stamp set in Starry Sky Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the images from the Botanical Layers stamp set on the panel in Blushing Bride, Gray Granite, Merry Merlot and Starry Sky Inks. I adhered the Basic Whtie panel to a Merry Merlot mat and then to the inside of the Starry Sky card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the images from the Botanical Layers stamp set on the envelope front, the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of Sun Prints DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Prints Panel Card

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends and welcome to the weekend. I hope you have some fun plans in the works for the weekend.

Today’s card we made at our last Stamping Studio Meeting. After we’re done with the business part of the meeting, we do some Mystery Stamping. My upline Jaimie gives us very vague information, the measurements of the paper we need. She talks us through the process, and we put the card together. The cards all come out differently, but the same. Here’s my card from Mystery Stamping.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Prints Cling Stamp Set for my card today.

I joined in with The Male Room Monochrome Challenge #164.

I started by embossing a Night of Navy card front using the Fern 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the card front to a Night of Navy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On 3 panels of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the fern image from the Nature’s Prints stamp set in Night of Navy Ink randomly on the panels. I adhered the Basic White panels to Smoky Slate mats using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panels to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Night of Navy cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Nature’s Print stamp set in Versamark Ink. I sprinkled it with my White Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I fussy cut the sentiment using my Paper Snips and adhered it to the card front using Glue Dots. I tied a small bow using the Simply Elegant Trim and adhered it by the sentiment using a Glue Dot. I added a few Rhinestones Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Nature’s Prints stamp set in Night of Navy Ink. I stamped the fern image from the Nature’s Prints stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on the sides of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Smoky Slate mat and then to the inside of the Night of Navy card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the fern image from the Nature’s Prints stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of Sun Prints Designer Series Paper 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! Splendid Thoughts Birthday Sneak Peek

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends and welcome to the weekend. Does anyone have any plans? I’ll be at work all day today, but they gave me off tomorrow so I can stay home with my fur baby. She still can’t stay alone since we have to keep her off the stairs.

Today’s card is another one that we made last Saturday night at our Creativity Now Event. Today and tomorrow’s cards actually go together, you’ll see why tomorrow. They are both outside of my comfort zone, but it’s ok to do that and try new things. I’m actually happy with how they turned out. I did tweak the cards a little from how they designed them. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Splendid Thoughts Bundle along with the Splendid Day Specialty Designer Series Paper and the Stampin’ Up! Go To Greetings Cling Stamp Set for my card today.

I started by randomly stamping the large leaf image from the Stampin’ Up! Splendid Thoughts Cling Stamp Set in Petal Pink Ink on a Petal Pink card front. I embossed the panel using the Fern 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the card front to a Petal Pink card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I cut 4 panels of the Splendid Day DSP using the 1/2 moon shape die from the Splendid Stems Dies. Using my Paper Snips, I distressed the edge of a panel of Basic White cardstock. I adhered the 4 die cut pieces to the Basic White panel unevenly leaving a space for the sentiment. I wrapped a piece of the Soft Sea Foam 3/8″ Seam Binding Ribbon around the panel and tied a knot. I adhered the panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Soft Sea Foam cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Splendid Thoughts stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I cut the sentiment out using my Stylish Shapes Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added an Open Leaf Trinket to the card front using a Glue Dot.

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Go To Greetings stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the large leaf image from the Splendid Thoughts stamp set around the panel in Petal Pink Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Petal Pink mat and then to the inside of the Petal Pink card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the leaf image from the Splendid Thoughts stamp set in Petal Pink Ink around the front of the envelope. I adhered a panel of the Splendid Day DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. The Bundle and DSP used for today’s card will be available starting Friday July 1st. If you don’t have a demonstrator and would like a copy of the Annual and Mini Catalog, please contact me and I’ll get one out to you right away. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Botanical Layers Sympathy

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How is everyone doing today? Are you ready for the weekend? I’ll be working both days this weekend.

Sorry I missed my Facebook Live on Wednesday, I ended up at work until after 4pm. Everything was cleaned up and all the work got done as planned, but whatever could go wrong did. Today’s card is not the one I was going to make on Wednesday, I just made a real quick one for today. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Botanical Layers Cling Stamp Set along with the Pretty Prints Designer Series Paper and the Stampin’ Up! Splendid Thoughts Cling Stamp Set (available July 1) for my card today.

I started by scoring and folding an Evening Evergreen card base. I folded the card base in half and then folded the front half back to make a Z-fold card.

I adhered a panel of Pretty Prints DSP to a Soft Sea Foam mat. I adhered the layered panel to the Evening Evergreen card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Soft Sea Foam cardstock, I stamped the fern image from the Botanical Layers stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink on the bottom of the panel. I cut the panel using the 5rh largest Deckled Rectangle Dies. I stamped the sentiment from the Splendid Thoughts stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink overlapping the fern. I embossed the panel using my Fern 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the embossed panel to an Evening Evergreen mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals, only on the left half. I added a few Brushed Metallic Adhesive Backed Dots to the card front.

On the inside I adhered a panel of Pretty Prints DSP to a Soft Sea Foam mat and then to the inside of the Evening Evergreen card base. I cut a panel of Soft Sea Foam cardstock using the 5th largest Deckled Rectangle Dies. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Through It Together Cling Stamp Set in Evening Evergreen Ink. I stamped the fern image from the Botanical Layers stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink, stamping off on scrap paper once, on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card base, lining it up with the card front so that you can’t see it when the card is closed.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the fern image from the Botanical Layers stamp set in Soft Sea Form Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of Pretty Prints DSP to the envelope flap.

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

Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Prints Fun Fold Video Tutorial

Good Friday morning my stamping friends welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. 14 years ago today we brought home my little fur baby Jasmine. She was so small, loved to be held and would curl up in my lap. She’s much bigger now and can’t do that, but she still loves to lay her head on my lap. She has brought us so much joy over the past 14 years, I can’t imagine not having her around. She has been the most loyal companion I’ve ever had, sticking by my side if I’m inside making cards, blogging or outside gardening. She was my Mother’s Day gift 14 years ago. Happy Gotch Day Jasmine.

Are you ready for the weekend? I hope you are making some fun plans. I’ll be working Sunday this weekend. Yes, I have to work on Mother’s Day. I make up the schedule for all the cashiers a month in advance. For some reason I thought next Sunday was Mother’s Day. It’s ok though, I’m working with a friend of mine and we always have a lot of fun together.

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 Stampin’ Up! Sun Prints Suite Collection for my card today.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Prints Cling Stamp Set in VersaMark Ink on a panel of Night of Navy cardstock. I immediately sprinkled it with my White Embossing Powder from the Basic Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I cut the sentiment out using the Natural Prints Dies. On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the wheat grass image from the Nature’s Prints stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink. I cut the images out using my Natural Prints Dies. Using my Natural Prints Dies, I cut 4 of the larger sprigs from a panel of Sahara Sand cardstock and 2 of the small sprigs from a panel of Pacific Point cardstock.

Here is my template of how to score and fold the card base. I suggest not using Basic White Thick cardstock like I did. It’s harder to fold on the score lines properly. When I tried this on regular cardstock, all my score lines folded perfectly. I scored and folded my Basic White Thick cardstock as listed in the above photo.

For the front Sun Prints DSP panel, I measured down from the top right 1 7/8″. I cut from the 1 7/8″ mark to the top left corner using my Paper Trimmer. I adhered the panels to the front of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. For the back Sun Prints DSP panel, I measured up from the bottom left 1 7/8″. I cut from the 1 7/8″ mark to the bottom right corner using my Paper Trimmer. I adhered the panels to the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. For the center Basic White panel, I measured down from the top left 1 7/8″ and made a small mark. I measured up from the bottom right 1 7/8″ and made a little mark. I stamped the sentiment from the Nature’s Prints stamp set below where I would be cutting the panel in Pacific Point Ink. I stamped the floral images from the Nature’s Prints stamp set in Pacific Point Ink, stamping off twice on scrap paper, on the top and bottom of the panel. I stamped the wheat grass image from the Nature’s Print stamp set in Saraha Sand Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper, on the side and bottom of the panel. I cut from the pencil marks on the Basic White panel to the opposite corners using my Paper Trimmer. I adhered the 3 pieces of Basic White cardstock to the inside of the Basic Whtie Thick card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

For the belly band, I embossed the strip of Basic White cardstock using the Fern 3E Embossing Folder. To do this, I put the strip in the folder on an angle and ran it through my Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine. I loosely wrapped the belly band around the card base and adhered it using Tear & Tape. I arranged the die cut pieces the way I wanted them and adhered them together using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the sentiment over the top of the small collage using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the collage to the belly band, over the seam where I adhered it together, using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Iridescent Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the sentiment panel.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the floral image from the Nature’s Prints stamp set in Pacific Point Ink, stamping off twice on scrap paper, on the envelope front. I stamped the wheat grass image from the Nature’s Prints stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper, next to the floral image. I adhered a panel of the Sun Prints 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. The items used for today’s card will be available May 3rd. I hope you will CASE this card and please feel free to post it in the comments of my Facebook page under my 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.
