Stampin’ Up! Hand-Penned Petals 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. This week we have a Sketch Challenge. Here is my card using this week’s Sketch.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Hand-Penned Petals Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper for my card today.

Here is our sketch for this week.

I started by adhering a panel of Hand Penned DSP to a Garden Green card base. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the outline floral image from the Hand-Penned Petals stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I adhered a Post-It note to the panel and stamped the floral image once. I flipped the panel over and adhered the Post-It note again and stamped the floral image a second time. I stamped the leaves in Garden Green Ink. I stamped the flowers in Daffodil Delight, Highland Heather and Pool Party Inks.

I embossed the panel using my Timeworn Type 3d Embossing Folder. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Cactus Cuties Photopolymer Stamp Set in Versamark Ink on a panel of Garden Green cardstock. I immediately sprinkled it with my White Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I cut the sentiment out using my Waves Dies.

I threaded White Bakers Twine through the sentiment and adhered it to the back with Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a couple Brushed Brass Butterflies and a Bumblebee Trinket to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Hand-Penned Petals stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the outlined floral image from the Hand-Penned Petals stamp set on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the leaves in Gaden Green Ink and the flowers in Daffodil Delight, Highland Heather and Pool Party Inks. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Garden Green mat and then to the inside of the Garden Green card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the outlined floral image from the Hand Penned Petals stamp set on the envelope front in Tuxedo Black Ink. I stamped the leaves and flowers the same as i did for the card front. I adhered a panel of Hand Penned 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 and see everyone’s projects today.

Stampin’ Up! Blessings of Home Mother’s Day

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends. I hope you are all having a wonderful week so far.

Today’s card has very little stamping and is focusing on designer series paper. We will be making this card tonight at my Stamp Camp card class and just like yesterday’s, everyone will be making the same card, but just a little different. I’ve cut all different DSP and cardstock colors for each of the ladies. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Blessings of Home Cling Stamp Set along with the Stampin’ Up! Happy & Heartfelt Cling Stamp Set and the Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by embossing a Basic White card front using the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder.

I adhered 3 panels of Hand Penned DSP to 3 Highland Heather mats. I adhered the 2 larger layered panels to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and the smaller panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I wrapped a piece of White Bakers Twine from the Bakers Twine Essential Pack around the card front twice and tied a bow.

On a panel of Highland Heather cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Blessings of Home stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I sponged the edges of the panel with Highland Heather Ink using my Sponge Dauber. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the card front to a Highland Heather card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Bumblebee Trinkets to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Happy & Heartfelt stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I adhered a strip of the Hand Penned DSP to the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Highland Heather mat and then to the inside of the Highland Heather card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of the Hand Penned 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! New Shipping Fees Beginning April 1

I want to let you know about a change to Stampin’ Up!’s shipping and handling pricing.  Starting April 1, the minimum shipping charge will increase by $1.00, from $6.95 to $7.95—or by one percentage point, from 10% to 11% of the total order amount—whichever is greater.

If you ever use the expedited shipping options, those fees are going up a bit too.  Here are the new fees for expedited shipping:

  • Next Day Upgrade: $38.00 USD ($3.00 USD increase from the previous rate)
  • 2nd Day Upgrade: $23.00 USD ($3.00 USD increase from the previous rate)
  • 3 Day Shipping Upgrade: $15.00 USD ($5.00 USD increase from the previous rate)
  • The expedited shipping option rates above are calculated in addition to the standard shipping rate (e.g., the next day shipping option would cost $7.95 USD or 11%—whichever is greater—plus $38.00 USD)

I want to make sure you’re aware of this change, as it impacts both you and me.  Stampin’ Up! has worked to keep the increase as minimal as possible so they can continue bringing you the unique, high-quality, and coordinated paper crafting products that you love.

Stampin’ Up! Every Chapter CAS

Good Monday morning my stamping friends and Happy First Day of SPRING!!! How was everyone’s weekend? The birds are singing my tulips have sprouted, my crocus have bloomed, my daffodils are blooming, and I think I may have even seen some buds on my Bradford Pear tree. Sound like spring to me.

I have a nice simple card for you today using just Stamp, Ink, Paper and an Embellishment. I went back to Simple Stamping for a day. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Every Chapter Cling Stamp Set along with the Hand Penned Designer Series Paper and the Stampin’ Up! Bragworthy Cling Stamp Set for my card.

My colors are from Color Throwdown Challenge #684.

My design and theme is from the Fusion Card Challenge – Bookshelf.

I also joined in with the TGIF Technique Challenge #360 – Simple Stamping.

I started by stamping the book image from Every Chapter stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic Whtie card front. I stamped the 2 middle books from Every Chapter stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Hand Penned DSP.

I adhered the strip of DSP to my card front lining up the image. I trimmed the sides using my Paper Snips. I colored the cup and glasses in using my Crumb Cake, So Saffron and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I adhered the card front to a Smoky Slate mat and then to a So Saffron card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Classic Matte Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Bragworthy stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the cup and glasses from Every Chapter stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom of the panel. I colored the image in using my Crumb Cake, So Saffron and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic Whtie panel to a Smoky Slate mat and then to the inside of the So Saffron card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the cup and glasses from Every Chapter stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and colored it using my Crumb Cake, So Saffron and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of Hand Penned DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my Simple Stamping card and will give it a try. I’m not normally a simple stamper, but every once in a while, I give it a try. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Flowering Rain Boots for The Card Concepts

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. We’re halfway through the week already and on our way to the weekend. I hope you are starting to make some plans. It’s warming up here a little, hopefully to stay this time.

It’s time for another inspiration challenge for The Card Concepts. The inspiration photo is Spring Garden.  Here is my card that was inspired from the challenge photo.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Flowering Rain Boots Bundle along with the Hand Penned Designer Series Paper for my Freestyle Collage card today. I was inspired by the colors, the rain boots and the flowers.

I hope you will take a moment to visit The Card Concepts and join us for our challenge #171.  How are you inspired by this photo?

I started by adhering a panel of Hand Penned DSP to a Basic White card base. I adhered a smaller panel of Hand Penned DSP to a Garden Green mat. I adhered the layered panel the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock using the Stampin’ Up! Flowering Rain Boots Photopolymer Stamp Set, I stamped the rain boots, seed packet and flowerpot in Sahara Sand Ink. I stamped the daisy image in Balmy Blue Ink. I cut the images out using my Rain Boots Dies. I colored the bottom and strip on top of the boots using my Polished Pink Stampin’ Blend Markers. I colored the daisy centers in using my Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blend Markers. I colored the seed packet using my Balmy Blue and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blend Markers. Using my Rain Boots Dies I cut 2 of the garden mini rake from panels of Balmy Blue and Silver Foil paper. Using my Paper Snips, I snipped off the handle of the Balmy Blue die cut mini rake and adhered it to the handle of the Silver Foil mini rake.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, using my Blending Brush, I added Sahara Sand Ink to the bottom of the panel. I adhered 2 strips of Balmy Blue cardstock on the top and bottom of the panel. I stamped the sentiment from the Flowering Rain Boots stamp set in Garden Green Ink on the top of the panel. I stamped the tulip stem image from the Flowering Rain Boots stamp set in Garden Green Ink 3 times. I stamped the tulip image from the Flowering Rain Boots stamp set in Polished Pink Ink on the stems. I adhered the daisy die to the top of the flowerpot die using Glue Dots. I then adhered it to the Basic White panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the rain boots and seed packet to the panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the mini garden rake to the flowerpot using a tiny amount of Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Pebbles Enamel Shapes on the bottom of the panel. I added a Bumblebee Trinket and a couple of the Brushed Brass Butterflies by the flowers.

I kept the inside simple. I stamped the sentiments from the Flowering Rain Boots stamp set in Garden Green Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the tulip stems image from the Flowering Rain Boots on the bottom of the panel and the tulips on top of the stems in Polished Pink Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Garden Green mat and then to the inside of the Basic White card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the tulip stems from the Flowering Rain Boots stamp set in Garden Green Ink. I stamped the tulips from the Flowering Rain Boots stamp set on top of the stems in Polished Pink Ink. I adhered a panel of the Hand Penned 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! All For Baby

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. Have you started shopping the new July-December 2021 Mini Catalog and earned some FREE Sale-a-bration items yet? What are you waiting for? Shop now through Monday August 9th and earn my Double Creative Stamping Designs Rewards. I got my order in first thing yesterday morning, YAY!!! I should have my goodies by tomorrow and can’t wait to start playing with them all.

Today’s card is another one we made at my class last night. I had a couple of the ladies request a baby card. A couple wanted baby boy cards and others wanted gender neutral. Here’s the card we made.

I used the Stampin’ Up! All For Baby Bundle for my cute card today.

I started by using my Blending Brush and added Pool Party Ink to a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the clothesline image from the Stampin’ Up! All For Baby Photopolymer Stamp Set in Gray Granite Ink on the inked panel. I cut the top of the panel using my Basic Borders Dies. I adhered the card front to a Thick Basic White card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the romper outfit from the All For Baby stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink and the teddy bear image from the All For Baby stamp set in Gray Granite Ink. I cut the stamped images out using my Baby Clothes Dies. Using my Baby Clothes Dies I cut 2 of the hangers from a panel of Basic White cardstock, 4 of the clothespins from a panel of Crumb Cake cardstock, the onesie outfit from a panel of Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper and the bib from a panel of Pattern Party Hose Designer Series Paper.

I stamped the sentiment from the All For Baby stamp set in Gray Granite Ink on the top of the inked panel. I adhered the outfits to the hangers using Stampin’ Seal and the clothespins to the die cut images using a tiny amount of Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the die cut images to the clothesline using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the All For Baby stamp set in Gray Granite Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the teddy bear image from the All For Baby stamp set in Gray Granite Ink on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Pool Party mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Thick Basic White card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the bear image from the All For Baby stamp set in Gray Granite Ink on the envelope front. I stamped the little striped romper outfit from the All For Baby stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of Pattern Party Host 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! Celebrate Sunflowers for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Does anyone have any plans for the weekend yet? I’ll be working all weekend between both jobs. Today I’m finally going to get to work in my garden. My yard has been sprayed for those annoying bugs, so hopefully I won’t get eaten alive again. I’m very excited about redoing my garden in case you can’t tell.

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! Celebrate Sunflowers Cling Stamp Set along with In Good Taste and Hand-Penned Designer Series Papers for my card today.

My inspiration for today’s card came from my sunflower plants I have growing in my backyard.

I started by stamping the large sunflower image from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Basic White Cardstock. I colored the image in using my Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image out using my Sunflower Dies. From a panel of Basic White cardstock I cut the middle Scalloped Contour Die. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Through It Together Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom corner of the die. I stamped the larger leaf image from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink 3 times. I colored the leaves in using my Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blends Markers and cut them out using my Sunflower Dies.

I adhered a panel of In Good Taste DSP to the front panel of the Smoky Slate card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the sunflower to the scalloped die using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals only on the left side of the panel. I adhered the leaves under the sunflower using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I scored and folded a smaller Highland Heather card base and adhered a panel of Hand-Penned DSP using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Through It Together stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the small sunflower image from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image in using my Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Mint Macaron and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Highland Heather mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the 3/4″ fold of the small card base behind the layered panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the layered panel to the inside of the Smoky Slate card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. The Highland Heather will tuck behind the scalloped die to hold the card closed. I added a couple Bumblebee Trinkets to my card using Glue Dots.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the small sunflower image from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I colored the image in using my Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Mint Macaron and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of Hand-Penned 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 this 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! Delivering Cheer Celebrate Together CAS

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone’s weekend going? Our weather man got it wrong again. Yesterday turned out to be a beautiful day here.

Today’s card is a step up from yesterday’s. I’m really loving this new set. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Delivering Cheer Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper for my card.

I started by adhering a panel of the Hand-Penned DSP to a Mint Macaron card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the top and bottom images from the Delivering Cheer stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image in using my Cinnamon Cider, Ivory, Mint Macaron and Pale Papaya Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Create With Friends Photopolymer Stamp Set in Pale Papaya and Mint Macaron Inks on the top of the Basic White panel. On a small panel of Hand-Penned DSP I stamped the skirt from the bottom image Delivering Cheer stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I fussy cut the skirt using my Paper Snips and adhered it to the stamped image using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I embossed a small panel of Pale Papaya cardstock using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the panel to the back of the artwork using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Genial Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Moments Cling Stamp Set in Mint Macaron Ink on a Basic White panel. I adhered a strip of the Hand-Penned DSP to the bottom of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Pale Papaya 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 adhered a strip of the Hand-Penned 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. This stamp set will be available starting August 3rd from the July-December 2021 Mini Catalog. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Create With Friends for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Does anyone have any plans for the long 4th of July weekend yet? I will be at Ace all day Saturday working and both places are closed for the 4th on Sunday so I have off, YAY!!!

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! Create With Friends Photopolymer Stamp Set, the Stampin’ Up! Hand-Penned Petals Bundle and the Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper.

I started by scoring the card base at 4 1/4″ & 5 1/2″. I then scored from the bottom of the 4 1/4″ score line to the top right corner and folded the panel in. I adhered the left binder side together using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered a strip of the Hand-Penned DSP to the left side of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I cut a panel of Basic White cardstock using the largest die from the Scalloped Contours Dies. I moved the die down 3 scallops and cut again to make a square. I adhered a panel of Hand-Penned DSP to the scallop square using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the layered panel to a Mint Macaron mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the panel just to the bottom triangle of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Create With Friends stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink. I edged the sentiment using my Blushing Bride Stampin’ Write Marker. On a thin scrap of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Create With Friends stamp set in Blushing Bride Ink and adhered it to the top of the larger sentiment using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Genial Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Hand-Penned Petals Photopolymer Stamp Set in Mint Macaron Ink on a Basic White panel. I adhered the panel to a Mint Macaron mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Mint Macaron card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I cut the detailed floral die from from a panel of Blushing Bride cardstock using the Penned Flowers Dies. I adhered the die cut to the inside panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals, placing it on the corner to hold the easel open.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the large floral image from the Hand-Penned Petals stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the Hand-Penned 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 this 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! Color and Contour Blending

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends. How has everyone’s week started off? I hope you are all having a productive one.

Today’s card is one that we made at our Inkin’ Krew Team Meeting on Sunday. We made 3 cards all using the Stampin’ Up! Color & Contour Bundle. Here’s the first card we made.

This card was designed and demonstrated by Linda, one of my team members. Isn’t it gorgeous.

We started by adhering a panel of Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper to a Highland Heather card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock we used our Blending Brushes and added Highland Heather Ink on the top, Blushing Bride Ink in the middle and Mint Macaron Ink on the bottom. We stamped the flower image from the Stampin’ Up! Color & Contour Photopolymer Stamp Set in Versamark Ink on top of the blended colors and immediately sprinkled it with Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder. I set it using my Heat Tool. I cut the image out using the middle scalloped rectangle from the Scalloped Contours Dies. I cut another one of the same scalloped rectangles out of a panel of Highland Heather cardstock. I adhered the artwork to the top of the Highland Heather rectangle using Stampin’ Seal and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Color & Contour stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I cut the sentiment out using the Stitched Rectangle Dies. I adhered the sentiment to a Highland Heather mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel just under the artwork on the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I added a few Pearl Basic Jewels to the card front. I tied a double bow using the White Twine from the Bakers Twine Essential Pack and adhered it to the stem of the flower with a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from Color & Contour stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the flower image from the Color & Contour stamp set in Highland Heather Ink, stamped off once, on either side of the sentiment . I adhered the Basic White panel to a Highland Heather mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Highland Heather card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the flower image from the Color & Contour stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the Hand-Penned DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you like the card that Linda designed and will give it a try. If you are interested in joining us at our next team meeting, I’d love to have you on my team. We have an awesome team and it’s a great group of people. Contact me at creativestampingdesigns@gamil.com and I’d be happy to talk to you more about joining. There’s no obligation to sell, blog or have workshops. Join as a hobby demonstrator just to enjoy the 20% discount. The new mini catalog will be coming out soon, you’d get to see the catalog early and order early. Contact me for more information. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Hand-Penned Petals for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Does anyone have any plans yet for the weekend? I’ll be at work all day tomorrow. Sunday we have our quarterly in person meeting, and it will be in person for those that are close enough to attend, YAY!!!

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! Hand-Penned Suite for my corner fold card today. Stampin’ Up! has simplified purchasing for you. There is one number for the Hand-Penned Petals Bundle, Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper and the Genial Gems. These products can be found on page 104/105 of the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog.

I started by adhering a panel of the Hand-Penned DSP to the front of a Misty Moonlight card base using Stampin’ Seal. I placed the bottom edge of my card on the bottom edge of my Trimmer at the 3″ mark. I placed the cutting blade at the 2 1/2″ mark and cut up to the 4 7/8″ mark. I turned the card a 1/4 turn, placing the front right side of the card on the bottom edge of the trimmer at the 3″ mark. I cut from the 3″ mark down to the 5/8″ mark. Very gently and slowly push the bottom cut edge through the back to flip around to the top. The DSP side will now be on the inside.

I embossed a small panel of Pale Papaya cardstock using the Checks & Dots Embossing Folder and adhered it to the flipped panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the floral image from the Stampin’ Up! Hand-Penned Petals Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I stamped the fill images in Garden Green Ink, stamped off once, Misty Moonlight Ink, stamped off once and Pale Papaya Ink over the outlined image. I cut the image out using my Penned Flowers Dies. I cut a few of the detailed leaves from the Penned Flowers Dies from a panel of Mint Macaron cardstock and adhered them to the back of the die cut flowers using Glue Dots.

I adhered the bouquet to the embossed panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered a piece of the Pale Papaya 1/2″ Woven Ribbon to the bottom of the card front with a tiny amount of Stampin’ Seal. On a small panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Hand-Penned Petals stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink. I cut the sentiment out using my Stitched So Sweetly Dies and adhered it over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Genial Gems to the card front.

I adhered a panel of Hand-Penned DSP to the inside of the Misty Moonlight card base using Stampin’ Seal. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Inspired Thoughts Cling Stamp Set in Misty Moonlight Ink. I stamped a partial image of the flowers from the Hand-Penned Petals stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom corner of the panel. I stamped the fill images in Garden Green Ink, stamped off once, Misty Moonlight Ink, stamped off once and Pale Papaya Ink over the outlined image. I adhered the Basic White panel to the DSP panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, making sure it would be behind the card front.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped a partial flower image from the Hand-Penned Petals stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I stamped the fill images in the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of the Hand-Penned 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.

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