Stampin’ Up! Love and Laughter CAS

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends.  How is everyone’s week going?  I’ve been working Monday, Tuesday and today.  One of my full time cashiers was out and they needed someone to fill in, but I do have tomorrow and Friday off (so far).  We’re already halfway through the week and before you know it the weekend will be here.

For today I have a really quick and easy card for you.  I think this one may have taken me all of 10-15 minutes.  Here’s my card for today.

I started by adhering a Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper card front to a Pear Pizzazz mat using Stampin’ Seal.

I adhered one of the Forever Gold Laser-Cut Specialty Paper panels to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, just in the center.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern Cling Stamp Set in Garden Green Ink on a small panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I cut the sentiment out using my Stitched Rectangle Dies.  There wasn’t a die that cut it narrow enough so I had to make my own.  I lined the rectangle up with the top half of the sentiment and cut part way, making sure not to go all the way through.  I moved the rectangle up and lined it up with the bottom half of the sentiment and lined up the stitches on the cardstock with the stitches on the die and cut part way through again.  I adhered the sentiment to the gold laser-cut panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered the matted card front to a Garden Green card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Elegant Faceted Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Many Mates Cling Stamp Set in Garden Green Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the leaf image from the Forever Fern stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink multiple times on the bottom of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pear Pizzazz mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Garden Green card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the leaf image from the Forever Fern stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink multiple times on the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of the Forever Greenery 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! Wildly Grateful

Good Monday morning my stamping friends.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Did anyone do anything fun?  We had our brunch yesterday then gave my husband his Outside Pizza Oven.  It was a big hit.  He loved it.  We have so much pizza right now, I think we might be eating it all week.  He had a lot of fun cooking in it.  I think next time I might have to invite a lot of people over if he’s going to make this much, LOL.

For today I have a quick and easy card for you.  Here’s my card for today.

My colors are from The Color Throwdown Challenge #598.  Here are their colors.

My design is from Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #440.  Here is their sketch.

I also played along with TGIF Technique Challenge #269.  Here is their theme.

I started by making my own designer series paper by randomly stamping 4 of the images from the Stampin’ Up! Lovely You Cling Stamp Set  on a panel of Whisper White cardstock using Coastal Cabana and Flirty Flamingo Inks.  Some images I stamped full strength ink and some were stamped off once to give the paper different shades of the colors.

I adhered my card front to a Coastal Cabana card base using Stampin’ Seal.  I stamped the sentiment from the Lovely You stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a small panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I cut the image out using my Stitched Rectangle Dies.  There wasn’t a die the size I needed, so I had to make my own size.  I did this by cutting the panel part way with the die.  I then turned the panel and moved the die to the size I wanted my rectangle, making sure the stitches were lined up.  I then cut the panel part way through again.

I adhered the sentiment to a Forever Gold Laser-Cut Specialty Designer Series Paper using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the framed sentiment to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue just in the center section of the die cut.  I added a few Coastal Cabana Playing With Patterns Resin Dots to the card front and sentiment.

On the inside I stamped the 4 images from the Lovely You stamp set in Coastal Cabana and Flirty Flamingo Ink randomly around the edges of a Whisper White panel.  Some were stamped full strength ink and some were stamped off once.  I didn’t put a sentiment on today’s card because I wanted to write my own thank you.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the 4 images from the Lovely You stamp set in full strength ink on the envelope front and stamped off once on 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! Forever Fern Hello

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends.  How has everyone’s week started off?  Things are starting to open up here in NJ.  From what I’ve heard, there are a lot of people not being responsible with keeping their distance.  I will not be going out to any other stores than the one’s I’ve been going to for the past few months.  Because things opened it doesn’t mean it’s over.  People need to be responsible.  Ok, I’m done ranting.

For today’s card I have another one we made at our team meeting on Sunday.  this one was designed by another team member, Mary Deatherage and she made such a beauty.  Here is my card for today.

I started by adhering a panel of Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper to a Soft Sea Foam mat using Stampin’ Seal.  I embossed a panel of Shaded Spruce cardstock using the Greenery Embossing Folder then adhered it to a Soft Sea Foam mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the matted embossed panel to the center of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered one of the Forever Gold Laser-Cut Specialty  Paper to the center of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  On a small panel of Soft Sea Foam cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern Cling Stamp Set in Shaded Spruce Ink.  I stamped the small leaf image from the Forever Fern stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink over the sentiment a couple times.  I stamped the splatter image from the Forever Fern stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink, stamping off once, around the sentiment and leaves.  I cut the sentiment out using the 2nd smallest circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies and adhered it to the center of the gold laser-cut paper using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered the card front to a Basic Black card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals and added a few Elegant Faceted Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Free As A Bird Cling Stamp Set in Shaded Spruce Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the leaf images from the Forever Fern stamp set in Shaded Spruce and Soft Sea Foam Inks on the side of the panel.  I stamped the splatter image from the Forever Fern stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink, stamping off once, around the leaf images.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Soft Sea Foam mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Basic Black card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the leaf images from the Forever Fern stamp set in Shaded Spruce and Soft Sea Foam Inks on the envelope front.  I stamped the splatter image from the Forever Fern stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink, stamping off once, around the leaf images.  I adhered a panel of the Forever Greenery DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked the card we made at our team meeting and will give it a try.  We do our team meetings in person every quarter and have a great time.  If you’d like to join our team, drop me a line and I’d be happy to talk to you about joining.  Now is the perfect time to join with the awesome joining special Stampin’ Up! has.  See details below.  Happy Stamping!!
