Stampin’ Up! Flowering Cactus for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends Happy April!!! Welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. I hope everyone is doing well today. If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we have a Sketch Challenge. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s amazing projects. Here is my card using this weeks sketch.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Flowering Cactus Product Medley for my card. This is such a great group of products, I’m going to be sorry to see it retire.

I started by embossing a Mossy Meadow card front using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the card front to Calypso Coral card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut 2 panel of the Flowering Cactus Designer Series Paper using my Stitched Rectangle Dies. I adhered the 2 panels together on an angle using Stampin’ Seal then adhered them to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I cut a panel of Basic White cardstock using the Stitched Shapes Dies. I stamped the sentiment from the Flowering Cactus stamp set on the stitched circle in Mossy Meadow Ink. From a panel of Mossy Meadow cardstock I cut a coordinating scalloped circle from the Layering Circles Dies and adhered the stitched circle to it using Stampin’ Seal. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the small cactus image from the Flowering Cactus stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink. I stamped the small double flower image in Calypso Coral Ink 3 times. I cut the images out using my Flowering Cactus Dies. I adhered the flowers to the cactus using Glue Dots. I adhered the cactus to the bottom of the stitched circle using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I tied a multi loop bow using the Calypso Coral twine from the Product Medley, and adhered it to the bottom of the stitched circle using a Glue Dot. I adhered the circle 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 Flowering Cactus stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink in the center of the Basic White panel. I stamped the small cactus from the Flowering Cactus stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on the bottom of the panel twice. I stamped 1 set of the flowers on each cactus in Calypso Coral Ink and adhered another flower which I had cut out using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Mossy Meadow mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Calypso Coral card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of the Flowering Cactus DSP to the envelope front and a panel to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Flowering Cactus for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Are you ready for the weekend? I’ll be working both days again.

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! Flowering Cactus Product Medley for my card today.

I started by adhering a panel of the Flowering Cactus Designer Series Paper to the front of a Mint Macaron card base using Stampin’ Seal.

I adhered a strip of the Flowering Cactus DSP to the inside edge of the Mint Macaron card base using Stampin’ Seal.

I cut a panel of Basic White cardstock using the largest square from the Stitched Shapes Dies. I stamped the sand image from the Flowering Cactus Photopolymer Stamp Set in Sahara Sand Ink on the Basic White square. I stamped the smallest cactus from the Flowering Cactus stamp set on the top of the panel in Mossy Meadow Ink twice. I stamped the flower image on each of the cactus in Calypso Coral Ink. I cut the tall thin cactus image using my Cactus Dies from a panel of Pear Pizzazz cardstock and adhered it to the panel using Glue Dots. From a panel of the Flowering Cactus DSP I cut the other cactus and flower images out using the Cactus Dies. I adhered the smaller cactus to the Basic White panel using Glue Dots. I adhered the larger cactus image to the panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the flower to the larger cactus using Glue Dots. On a strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Flowering Cactus stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink and adhered it to the top of the cactus using Glue Dots. I adhered the artwork to a Mint Macaron mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the matted panel to a Basic White mat using Stampin’ Seal. I wrapped a piece of the Linen Thread around the 1 1/4″ fold twice and tied a knot. I adhered the matted artwork on the 1 1 4/” panel over the knot using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Flowering Cactus stamp set in the center of a Basic White panel in Mossy Meadow Ink. I stamped the medium cactus from the Flowering Cactus stamp set on the bottom of the panel in Mint Macaron Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to the inside of the Mint Macaron card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the cactus images from the Flowering Cactus stamp set on the front of the envelope in Mint Macaron and Mossy Meadow. I stamped the flowers on the cactus in Calypso Coral. I adhered a panel of the Flowering Cactus 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 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.

Stampin’ Up! Flowering Cactus Friendship Card

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends. How has everyone’s week started off? Before I get to my card for today, I want to wish my very special fur baby a Happy 13th Birthday. I ordered her a special birthday cupcake from the Hungry Hound (one of my other jobs). She’ll be getting that later tonight after she eats her dinner 😉

This was 2008 when we first got Jasmine. Little girl with big paws.
She used to love laying on the last step watching everything/everyone go by
One of her favorite places to lay during the spring/summer
Her most recent picture in her new bed. She never liked beds till this year

Ok, on to my card for today. I used one of my favorite sets from the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog for today’s card the Stampin’ Up! Flowering Cactus Product Medley. I don’t usually purchase the kits, but when I saw this one I just knew I needed it. Here’s my card for today.

My colors are from Fab Friday Challenge #208.

My design is from Just Add Ink Challenge #543.

I also joined in with Hand Stamped Sentiments Inspiration Challenge #358.

I started by cutting 9 rectangles from 2 different panels of the Flowering Cactus Designer Series Paper using my Stitched Rectangle Dies and adhering them to a Mossy Meadow card front using Multipurpose Liquid glue. I adhered the card front to a Mint Macaron card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

In the Flowering Cactus DSP there is a panel that has all of the cactus and flowers to match up with the Flowering Cactus Dies. I cut everything out since I wasn’t sure what I was planning on using . I cut a panel of Vellum using my Stitched Shapes Dies and adhered it to the center of the card front using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered one of the die cut cactus to the Vellum using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the Highland Heather cactus flowers to the cactus using Glue Dots.

On a strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Flowering Cactus Photopolymer Stamp Set in Mossy Meadow Ink. I adhered the sentiment to the bottom of the cactus using Glue Dots and Stampin’ Dimensionals. I tied a double bow using the Calypso Coral Linen Thread, that comes in the Flowering Cactus Product Medley, and adhered it using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Flowering Cactus stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the smallest cactus from the Flowering Cactus stamp set next to the sentiment in Mossy Meadow Ink and the flowers in Calypso Coral Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Mossy Meadow mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Mint Macaron card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic white Medium Envelope. I stamped the smallest cactus from the Flowering Cactus stamp set across the bottom front of the envelope in Mossy Meadow and Calypso Coral Inks. I adhered a panel of the Flowering Cactus 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! Flowering Cactus Celebrate Sneak Peek

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers. How was everyone’s weekend? Did you get all your shopping done and everything wrapped? I finished my baking, I’ll be putting trays together tonight. I think I’ve picked up everything I have to gift wise, now I just have to wrap. I’ve got Christmas dinner all planned out. I’m as ready as I’m going to be.

For today’s card I played with a Product Medley from the upcoming January-June 2021 Mini Catalog. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Flowering Cactus Product Medley for my card today. I’m really loving this medley. It’s such a fun group of products.

I started by cutting a panel of the Flowering Cactus Designer Series Paper in to 3 strips and adhered them using Multipurpose Liquid Glue to a panel of Highland Heather cardstock. I adhered the artwork to a Highland Heather mat using Stampin’ Seal.

I wrapped a piece of the Calypso Coral Twine around the panel and tied a small bow. I adhered a panel of Flowering Cactus DSP to a Highland Heather card base using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Many Mates Cling Stamp Set in Mossy Meadow Ink. I cut the sentiment out using my Stitched So Sweetly Dies and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Artistry Blooms Adhesive-Backed Sequins to the sentiment and card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Flowering Cactus Photopolymer Stamp Set in Mossy Meadow Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel. I stamped the cactus image from the Flowering Cactus stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink, stamping off once, on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Highland Heather mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Highland Heather card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the cactus image from the Flowering Cactus stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the Flowering Cactus DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today, I hope you liked my card. This Product Medley will be available January 5, 2021. It’s such a great group of products, you might just want to grab it for your card making. Happy Stamping!!

WHISPER WHITE CARDSTOCK PRODUCTS- AVAILABLE WHILE SUPPLIES LAST

Stampin’ Up! announced this information related to the Whisper White paper products late last evening:

Whisper White has been a Stampin’ Up! staple for so long. We love it and we know you love it, too. We are sad to announce that the supplier’s mill producing our Whisper White cardstock has permanently closed due to impacts from the COVID-19 pandemic. Unfortunately, we weren’t given much notice on this closure. This means that the technology unique to this particular supplier is now unavailable to us and we can no longer offer our Whisper White cardstock and related products, such as Whisper White Note Cards & Envelopes. Please note that this won’t affect any of our other cardstocks, this only affects Whisper White.

We know Whisper White has a huge fan base; we’re big fans, too! And we are crushed that it’s going away. Even though this decision was out of our hands, rest assured that we jumped right into action to find the best replacement paper possible. We have dedicated many hours to source and test alternative cardstock options from several suppliers to find the perfect fit that still maintains the Stampin’ Up! quality you know and trust. We are happy to share that we have found a winner for our new cardstock, Basic White!

The quality of our new Basic White was thoroughly tested by our quality assurance and product teams. It also tested very well with demonstrators and concept artists who gave it a huge thumbs up. We believe in the quality of the new Basic White cardstock and we know it will become your new crafting staple!

What does this mean for you?

With Whisper White going out of production, this means a number of Whisper White products will be affected. Below is a list of all products that will be replaced with our new Basic White cardstock. These items are now available while supplies last with an order limit of 2 per item per order.

  • Whisper White 12″ x 12″ (30.5 x 30.5 cm) Cardstock (124302)
  • Assorted Memories & More Cards & Envelopes (149710)

Stampin’ Up! Flowering Cactus Sneak Peek

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers. Welcome to Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop. It’s the 2nd Tuesday of the month so that means Blog Hop Day!! If you are starting with me, be sure to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects. If you’ve hopped over from Karen Finkle’s blog, welcome to my blog and thank you for stopping by. The theme this month is “Celebrate”.  We can interpret this however we want.  I decided to do a birthday celebrate card using the Stampin’ Up! Flowering Cactus Product Medley from the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog. Here’s my card.

I started with a panel of Whisper White cardstock and using my Sponge Brayers, I started on the bottom of the panel with Daffodil Delight Ink. I then blended Mango Melody Ink with the Daffodil Delight in the center of the panel. Last I blended Calypso Coral Ink from the center to the top. Once I had the coverage I wanted I cut the panel using the 3rd largest rectangle from the Stitched Rectangles Dies. I then stamped the 2 cactus from the Stampin’ Up! Flowering Cactus Photopolymer Stamp Set (that’s only available from the Flowering Cactus Product Medley), in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the bottom of the panel.

On another panel of Whisper White cardstock, I stamped the small cactus image from the Flowering Cactus stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink 3 times. I stamped the larger cactus image from the Flowering Cactus stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on the Whisper White panel. I stamped the flower images from the Flowering Cactus stamp set, one in Highland Heather Ink and one in Poppy Parade Ink. I cut all the images out using my Flowering Cactus Dies (part of the Flowering Cactus Product Medley). I also cut the tall cactus from the Flowering Cactus Dies from a panel of Mossy Meadow cardstock. I adhered the cactus on the card front using Glue Dots and Stampin’ Dimensionals. The Product Medley also comes with sheets of adorable stitched felt flowers. I adhered the stamped and felt flowers to the cactus using Glue Dots. I adhered the artwork to a Basic Black Mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to a Whisper White mat using Stampin’ Seal.

I stamped the sentiment from the Flowering Cactus stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the panel of Whisper White cardstock and cut it out using the smallest rectangle from the Stitched Rectangle Dies. I adhered a panel of the Flowering Cactus 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper (from the Product Medley), to a Calypso Coral card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the matted artwork to the center of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the sentiment to the top of the card front overlapping the artwork. I tied a multiloop bow with the Calypso Coral Linen Thread (from the Product Medley) and adhered it to the bottom of the sentiment using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Best Year Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel. I stamped the cactus image from the Flowering Cactus stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink, stamping off once, over the sentiment. I adhered a strip of the Flowering Cactus DSP to the bottom of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Mossy Meadow mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Calypso Coral card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the cactus and flower images from the Flowering Cactus Stamp Set in Pear Pizzazz and Poppy Parade Inks on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the Flowering Cactus DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for visiting by my blog today, I hope you liked my card. I don’t usually buy the card kits or product medley’s from the catalog, but when I saw this one I just knew I had to have it. It is such an awesome medley and will be available January 5, 2021. Now that you’ve seen my card, be sure to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects.
