Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern Sympathy

Good Monday morning my stamping friends and welcome to August. I can’t believe I’m saying that. This means that this is the last month of Sale-a-bration and things are selling out. How was everyone’s weekend? I hope you were able to do something fun.

Today’s card is one of those cards you don’t want to make, but sometimes you just have to. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! forever Fern Sympathy 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern Cling Stamp Set along with the Stampin’ Up! Go To Greetings Cling Stamp Set and the Stampin’ Up! Inspired Thoughts Cling Stamp Set for my card today.

My colors are from the Color Throwdown Challenge #703.

My design is from Freshly Made Sketches #546 – A Sketch by Amy.

I started by using a Post-It note that I cut a circle using the Layered Circles Dies and adhered it to a Very Vanilla card front. Using my Blending Brush, I added Crumb Cake Ink inside the circle. Before removing the mask, I stamped the leaf image from the Forever Fern stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink.

Using another Post-It note and a smaller die from the Layering Circles Dies, I adhered it on the bottom and added Balmy Blue Ink using my Blending Brush. I moved the Post-It note to the top and added Balmy Blue Ink again using my Blending Brush.

I stamped the sentiment from the Go To Greetings stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink on the top of the panel. I added a small bow with a Glue Dot using Crumb Cake Baker’s Twine from the Baker’s Twine Essential Pack. I adhered the card front to a Very Vanilla Thick card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside, I stamped the sentiments from the Inspired Thoughts stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink on a Very Vanilla panel. I stamped the leaf image from the Forever Fern stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink on both sides of the panel. I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Crumb Cake mat and then to the inside of the Very Vanilla Thick card base.

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend? It was definitely a hot one here. It’s supposed to cool down to the 90’s this week. How is it by all or you?

Today’s card I played with another new set that I just got last week. I thought I had ordered it with my 1st order and when I went to use it, I realized I forgot to order it. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin’ Up! Brightest Beauty CAS

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend. It’s HOT here. We’re supposed to be in the 100’s today. The ‘feel like’ temp for the past week has been over 100 every day. My son has been coming home from work exhausted. He’s a soccer coach and has been outside in the sun for the past week at camps. He brings gallons of water with him and picks up Gatorade or Powerade drinks too. The good thing about the heat we’re having, my tomatoes are ripening, I was able to have my 1st tomato sandwich of the season yesterday and it was delicious.

Today I have a really quick CAS card for you using a new set I just received from the July-December Mini Catalog. I looked over this set at first, but I have to admit, I LOVE it. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Brightest Beauty Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Stampin’ Up! Go To Greetings Cling Stamp Set for my card today.

My colors are from Color Throwdown Challenge #702.

I got my CAS design from Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #545.

Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers CAS

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends and welcome to the weekend. I hope you have something fun planned for the weekend.

Today I have a CAS card for you. I pulled out an older set to play with along with my Blending Brushes. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers Cling Stamp Set along with the Stampin’ Up! Go To Greetings Cling Stamp Set for my card today.

My colors today are from Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge #393.

I started by masking off half of a Basic White card front using Post-It Note Tape. Using my Blending Brushes, I added Highland Heather Ink to the top of the panel. I added Coastal Cabana Ink below the Highland Heather and Orchid Oasis on the bottom of the panel. Once I had the depth of color that I wanted I removed the Post-It Note Tape.

I stamped the large sunflower image from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I covered the sunflower with a sticky note mask I had cut out and stamped the leaf image from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set around the sunflower in Tuxedo Black Ink. I stamped the sentiment from the Go To Greetings stamp set on the bottom of the card front in Tuxedo Black Ink.

I adhered the card front to a Coastal Cabana mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to an Orchis Oasis card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a small bow using the Orchid Oasis 1/8″ Metallic Woven Ribbon using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the large sunflower image from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink in 2 of the corners. I added some Highland Heather and Coastal Cabana ink using my Blending Brushes. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Coastal Cabana mat and then to the inside of the Orchid Oasis card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the large sunflower image from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and flap. Using my Blending Brushes, I added color to each of the sunflowers.

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 Thank You Sneak Peek

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend.

Today’s card is part 2 of yesterday’s card. This one is also out of my comfort zone, but I had fun making it and was happy how it turned out. This was another one we made last Saturday at our Creativity Now Event and I tweaked it a little from the way they made it. Here’s my card for today.

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

I started by embossing a Basic White card front using the Painted Posies 3D Embossing Folder. I lightly brushed Soft Sea Foam Ink over the embossed panel using my Blending Brush. I adhered the card front to a Basic White Thick card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Soft Sea Foam cardstock, I blended some Soft Sea Foam Ink to the bottom corner of the panel using my Blending Brush. I stamped the solid eucalyptus leaf image from the Stampin’ Up! Splendid Thoughts Cling Stamp Set in VersaMark Ink. I sprinkled it with my White Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I adhered the panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I took the 4 negative die cut panels from yesterday’s card and adhered them to the Soft Sea Foam panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. Using my Splendid Stems Dies, I cut 3 pieces of Splendid Day DSP using the leaf die. I adhered the 3 die cut leaves inside 3 of the negative half-moon dies using Glue Dots.

On a panel of Calypso Coral cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Go To Greetings stamp set in Versamark Ink. I sprinkled it with my White Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I cut the sentiment using my Stylish Shapes Dies and adhered it to the 4th negative half-moon die using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Fine Sparkle Adhesive-Backed Gems to the card front.

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Inspired Thoughts stamp set in Calypso Coral Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the solid eucalyptus leaf image from the Splendid Thoughts stamp set around the panel in Soft Sea Foam Ink. I adhered the Basic Whtie panel to a Soft Sea Foam 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 eucalyptus leaf image from the Splendid Thoughts stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink around the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the Splendid Day DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked the card and will give it a try. Some of the products that were used in today’s card will be available on Friday July 1st. 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! Go To Greeting Tag Fun Fold

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend? Did anyone do anything special for Father’s Day? We surprised my husband with an unexpected gift yesterday. My husband is a big Formula 1 fan. He loves watching the races. He’s not an oval or round track fan, he likes all the turns. There’s a place in south Jersey that he can go and drive a racecar on a racetrack. I booked a full package for him. He will get to drive with an experienced driver at high speeds, then he gets to drive a Farari with a passenger around the track. I’ll be in the pit watching lol. I did get the video and picture package too so I can see it later. I think he’s a bit excited about it. We’ll be going the end of August.

Before I get started with my card, I just wanted to remind everyone that TOMORROW is the day for Stampin’ Up! Free Shipping.

Today’s card is a quick one even though it’s a fun fold. There’s not much stamping going on today. I played with some new dies that I’ve had but haven’t played with yet. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Go To Greetings Cling Stamp Set along with the Designer Tags Dies and Tea Boutique 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by adhering a panel of Tea Boutique DSP to the front of the Orchid Oasis card base. Using the largest Designer Tags Die and the detailed flower die, I cut a panel of Orchid Oasis cardstock. Using the same large tag die, I cut a panel of Basic White cardstock. I adhered the White tag to the back of the detailed Orchid Oasis tag. I trimmed the bottom of the tag using my Paper Trimmer.

I colored a piece of the 3/8″ Metallic Edge Cotton Ribbon using my Sweet Sorbet Stampin’ Blends Markers. Once it was dried, I threaded the ribbon through the top of the tag and tied it off. I adhered the tag to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Sweet Sorbet cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Go To Greetings stamp set in Versamark Ink. I sprinkled it with my White Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I snipped the one end into a banner using my Paper Snips. I adhered the sentiment to the tag using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Iridescent Rhinestones Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Go To Greetings stamp set in Orchid Oasis Ink on a Basic White panel. I cut the sprig using the Designer Tags Dies from a panel of Garden Green cardstock and adhered it to the bottom of the panel. I adhered a panel of Tea Boutique DSP to the inside of the Orchid Oasis card base. I adhered the Basic Whtie panel to the left of the inside of the card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of the Tea Boutique DSP to the envelope front and a panel 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! Wonderful World Sneak Peek Fun Fold Video Tutorial

Good Friday morning my stamping friends welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Are you ready for the weekend? I hope you are making some fun plans. I have off from both jobs this weekend. I was originally scheduled for Saturday, but one of my cashiers asked if she could work since she needed next weekend off, and I requested Sunday off since it’s my son’s birthday and Father’s Day.

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. I actually have 2 versions of the card to show you. Here are my cards for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Sale-a-bration Wonderful World Bundle (available July 1st) along with the Stampin’ Up! Go To Greetings Cling Stamp Set for my cards today.

I started by cutting the Rich Razzleberry card base front. I lined up the 8 1/2″ edge at the 3″ mark on my Paper Trimmer. I cut from the 3″ mark to the 3/4″ mark. I turned the paper so the 5 1/2″ side was lined up at the 3″ mark on my Paper Trimmer. I cut from the 4 3/4″ mark to the 2 1/2″ mark. Gently push the cut panel towards the inside of the card so that the bottom corner becomes the top corner.

I cut a panel of the Wonderful World DSP (Sale-a-bration item available July 1st). Line up the 5 3/8″ side at the 2 15/16″ mark on the Paper Trimmer and cut from top down to the 2 1/2″ mark. Turn paper so the 4 1/8″ side is lined up on the Paper Trimmer at the 2 15/16″ mark and cut from the 3″ mark down. Adhered the Wonderful World DSP to the front of the card base lining the cut edge up with the cut edge of the card base. You will have to trim the small corners with Paper Snips that fold down under the flipped portion of the card.

Using the largest square from the Stylish Shapes Dies, cut a panel of Mossy Meadow cardstock. Stamp the small leaf image from the Stampin’ Up! Wonderful World Cling Stamp Set (available July 1st from Sale-a-bration), in Mossy Meadow Ink multiple times on the Mossy Meadow panel. Adhere the die cut square to the flipped corner using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the rose image from the Wonderful World stamp set using the Marker to stamp technique. I colored the rose using my Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Write Marker and the stem using my Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Write Marker. Huff on the stamp a couple times and stamp on the Basic White panel. I cut the image using the 3rd largest circle from the Stylish Shapes Dies. I adhered the stamped image to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few 2021-2023 In-Color Opal Rounds to the card front.

For this card I stamped the flower image from the Wonderful World stamp set using my Orchid Oasis and Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Write Markers on a panel of Basic White cardstock and cut the image out using the largest square from the Stylish Shapes Dies.

I adhered a panel of Wonderful World DSP to the inside of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I stamped the sentiment from the Go To Greetings stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink on a Basic White panel. I huffed on the already inked stamped to reactivate the ink and stamped the image on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to the inside of the Rich Razzleberry card base making sure it is under the folded panel.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the flower image from the Wonderful World stamp set on the envelope front the same as I did for the card front.

I adhered a panel of the Wonderful World DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Simply Fabulous Fun Fold Video Tutorial

Good Friday morning my stamping friends welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Are you ready for the weekend? I hope you are making some fun plans. I have to work on Saturday and Sunday is our quarterly in person team meeting.

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! Simply Fabulous Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Stampin’ Up! Go To Greetings Cling Stamp Set and the Butterfly Kisses 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my card today.

This is the template for the card as promised.

Once I cut and folded the Basic White cardstock as in the above picture, I adhered panels of Butterfly Kisses DSP to Fresh Freesia mats. I adhered the layered panel to the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the stem/leaf image from the Simply Fabulous stamp set in Parakeet Party Ink. I stamped the sentiment from the Go To Greetings stamp set in Parakeet Party Ink on the top of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Fresh Freesia mat and then to the Basic White card base. I added Fun Flower Resin Shapes to the top of the stamped stem image.

I fussy cut multiple butterflies from the Butterfly Kisses DSP using my Paper Snips. I adhered the butterflies to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the Basic White panel for the inside, I stamped the stem/leaf image from the Simply Fabulous stamp set in Parakeet Party Ink. I stamped the sentiment from the Go To Greetings stamp set in Parakeet Party Ink on the top of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Fresh Freesia mat and then to the inside of the Basic White card base. I adhered the fussy cut butterflies on the inside using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the stems and leaves from the Simply Fabulous stamp set in Parakeet Party Ink. I stamped the hearts on the stems in Calypso Coral Ink. I adhered a panel of Butterfly Kisses 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. 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.

Stampin’ Up! Fresh Cut Flowers CAS Thinking of You

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends. How has everyone’s week started off? Tonight, is my Stamp Camp Card Class. I look forward to this every month with getting together with the ladies. We have 2 new ladies joining us tonight and I’m looking forward to meeting them and learning their style of stamping.

Today’s CAS card is one that we will be making tonight. I’m trying to keep it fairly simple tonight since I have 6 ladies coming and don’t know what level they are all at. Everyone will be making this card, but they will color the flowers in whatever color they would like to. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Fresh Cut Flowers Cling Stamp Set along with the Stampin’ Up! Go To Greetings Cling Stamp Set and the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Moments Cling Stamp Set for my card today.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the large flower image from the Fresh Cut Flowers stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image using my Daffodil Delight, Orchid Oasis, Soft Succulent and Sweet Sorbet Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I stamped the sentiment from the Go To Greetings stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the top of the panel.

I embossed the panel using the Into The Clouds Embossing Folder. I adhered the embossed panel to a Orchid Oasis card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Peaceful Moments stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the smaller floral image from the Fresh Cut Flowers stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom of the panel. I colored the image using my Daffodil Delight, Orchid Oasis, Soft Succulent and Sweet Sorbet Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to an Orchid Oasis mat and then to the inside of the Orchid Oasis card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the floral image from the Fresh Cut Flowers stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I colored the image using my Daffodil Delight, Orchid Oasis, Soft Succulent and Sweet Sorbet Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of 2022-2024 6 X 6 In-Color Designer Series Paper to the envelope flap.

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