Stampin’ Up! Happy Holly-Days for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends. Welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. Can you believe it’s the middle of October already? Another month flying by. Before you know it , it’ll be Halloween, then Thanksgiving and Christmas, YIKES! How was everyone’s week? Does anyone have plans for the weekend? I’ll be at work all weekend between both jobs.

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! Happy Holly-Days Cling Stamp Set along with the Whimsy & Wonder Specialty Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by adhering a panel of the Whimsy & Wonder DSP to the top of a Blushing Bride mat.

I scored a panel of Whimsy & Wonder DSP as shown in the template above. On the left side I made a little mark 1 1/2″ down from the top. I cut from the 2 1/4″ score line to the 1 1/2″ mark using my Paper Trimmer. I folded on the score lines as I marked on the template as Valley Folds and Mountain Folds to make the curtain.

I adhered the folded panel to the bottom of the Blushing Bride mat. I wrapped a piece of the Blushing Bride 3/8″ Frayed Grosgrain Ribbon around the layered panel over the seam. I adhered the card front to a Mossy Meadow card base.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the bird image from the Happy Holly-Days stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image in using my Crumb Cake and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the holly image from the Happy Holly-Days stamp set in Versamark Ink. I immediately sprinkled it with my Silver Embossing Powder from the Metallic Embossing Powder pack and set it using my Heat Tool. I colored the holly in using my Blushing Bride and Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Write Markers. I stamped the sentiment from the Happy Holly-Days stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink and cut it out using the Harvest Dies. I fussy cut the bird and holly using my Paper Snips. I adhered all the cut pieces to the card front. I added a few 2021-2023 In-Color Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Happy Holly-Days stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the holly image from the Happy Holly-Days stamp set on either side of the sentiment in Tuxedo Black Ink and colored the images in using my Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blends Markers and Blushing Bride Stampin’ Write Marker. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Blushing Bride mat and then to the inside of the Mossy Meadow card base. I added a couple of the 2021-2023 In-Color Jewels.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the bird image from the Happy Holly-Days stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and colored it the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of Whimsy & Wonder 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 the post.

Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Harvest CAS

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend? It was a gorgeous fall weekend here, unfortunately I spent most of it inside working.

I used another one of my favorite sets from the July-December 2021 Mini Catalog for my card today. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Harvest Bundle along with the Blackberry Beauty Specialty Designer Series Paper for my card today.

My colors are from TGIF Challenge #336.

My design today is from Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #505.

I started by adhering a panel of Blackberry Beauty DSP to a Thick Very Vanilla card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Using my Layering Circles Dies, I cut 2 circles the same size, 1 in Basic Black cardstock and 1 in Blackberry Bliss cardstock. I embossed the Basic Black circle using my Stitched Greenery Die and I embossed the Blackberry Bliss circle using my Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered them to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the small floral image from the Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Harvest Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink and cut the image out using my Harvest Dies. I adhered the floral image to the Blackberry Bliss circle using Stampin’ Dimensionals. On a strip of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Nature’s Harvest stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink and cut it out using my Harvest Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the card front over the circles 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! Through It Together Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Very Vanilla panel. I stamped the small floral image from the Nature’s Harvest stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom of the panel twice. I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Blackberry Bliss mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Thick Very Vanilla card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To finish my card I decorated a Very Vanilla Medium Envelope. I stamped the small floral image from the Nature’s Harvest stamp set on the envelope front twice in Tuxedo Black Ink. I adhered a panel of Blackberry Beauty 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! Harvest Meadow 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 my blog. This week we have a Sketch Challenge. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects. Here is my card using this weeks Sketch.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Harvest Bundle along with the Harvest Meadow Designer Series Paper for my card today.

Here’s our sketch for this week.

I started by adhering a panel of Harvest Meadow DSP to a Cinnamon Cider mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered card front to a Misty Moonlight card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the large cone flower image from the Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Harvest Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image in using my Cinnamon Cider, Fresh Freesia and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image out using my Harvest Dies. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Quiet Meadow Cling Stamp Set in Misty Moonlight Ink on the Basic White panel and punched it our using the Tailored Tag Punch. After I punched the sentiment, I stamped the small flower image from the Nature’s Harvest stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink, stamping off 3 times, over the sentiment. I cut the branch die from the Harvest Dies from a panel of Cinnamon Cider cardstock.

I adhered a panel of the Cork Specialty Paper to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the branch die to the Cork using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the cone flower and sentiment over the branch using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few 2020-2022 In-Color Square Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! In Your Words Host Cling Stamp Set in Misty Moonlight Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the small floral image from the Nature’s Harvest stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink, stamping off once, on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Cinnamon Cider mat using Stampn’ Seal and then to the inside of the Misty Moonlight card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the cone flower image from the Nature’s Harvest stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I colored the image the same as I did for my card. I adhered a panel of Harvest Meadow DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Harvest Twist and Turn 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 in the office, last day of the month and 1st day of the month. 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! Nature’s Harvest Bundle along with the Harvest Meadow Designer Series Paper for today’s card.

This is the template for my card.

I started by scoring a panel of Misty Moonlight cardstock. On the 8 1/2″ side I scored at 2 3/4″ & 4″. I turned the cardstock a 1/4 turn and scored on the 5 1/2″ side at 2 3/4″. With the longer part down I scored on a diagonal from the bottom center line to the top outside in the small scored section. See diagram above. I folded and burnished both ways on all the score lines. I folded the shorter side back and in half on the longer side. I carefully folded on the diagonal lines and pushed the bottom corner in. This is much easier to understand by watching the video since it’s very hard to explain.

I adhered a panel of Harvest Meadow DSP to a Basic White mat using Stampin’ Seal then adhered it to the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Harvest Cling Stamp Set in Misty Moonlight Ink. I cut the sentiment out using my Harvest Dies.

I adhered a panel of the Cork Specialty Paper to a Basic White mat using Stampin’ Seal then adhered it to the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the small flower image from the Nature’s Harvest stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image in using my Polished Pink and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image out using my Harvest Dies. I adhered the flower to the cork panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. Using my Meadow Dies I cut 2 of the 1/2 butterfly one from a panel of Fresh Freesia Shimmer Vellum Paper and one from a panel of Ombre Specialty Paper. I adhered the butterflies together using Multipurpose Liquid Glue just on the body part of the butterfly. I fluffed the wings and adhered the butterfly to the Cork Specialty Paper using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I added a few Brushed metallic Adhesive-Backed Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the flower image from the Nature’s Harvest stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I colored the image in using my Polished Pink and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the sentiment from the Nature’s Harvest stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink on the Basic White panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Misty Moonlight mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Misty Moonlight card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the small flower image from the Nature’s Harvest stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I colored the image in using my Polished Pink and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of Harvest Meadow 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. Products used for my card will be available Tuesday August 3rd from the new July-December 2021 Mini Catalog. If you would liked a copy of the catalog, drop me a line at creativestampingdesigns@gmail.com with your name and address and I will mail one to you.

I’m offering a Designer Series Paper share from the Stampin’ Up! July-December 2021 Mini Catalog and I’d love to have you join!!  I’m placing my share order early on August 3 and I’m going to use the expedited shipping option so I should be able to have the shares cut, bundled and back out to you during the week of August 9.

How my shares work:  I order full packs of all of the Designer Series Papers listed below, I cut them into 6″ x 6″ pieces (or 6″ x 12″ pieces for double shares) and give you one panel of each design from each pack on the list.  I pack up the paper in a cellophane bag and mail it back out to you just as quickly as I can!  Shares give you a good working sample of all of the papers so that you can decide which ones to order in full packs!

Here are the Designer Series Paper Shares that I am offering from the new Mini Catalog!

New Designer Series Paper Share – $25.00 plus $5.00 for 1st Class Mail shipping

Double DSP Share – $50 + $7.75 Shipping by Priority Mail – if you’d like double shares of the designer paper, that’s fine too.  I’ll cut the designer paper sheets into 6×12 so that you’ll be able to get 3 full A2 size card fronts from each sheet (except for the Gingerbread & Peppermint, Cute Halloween and Kraft 6″ × 6″, you’ll get double sheets of those since they’re already precut).

Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Harvest 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 my blog. This week we have a Sketch Challenge. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects. I have a sneak peek for you today from the July-December 2021 Mini Catalog. Here is my card using this weeks Sketch.

I used the new Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Harvest Bundle along with the Harvest Meadow Designer Series Paper and the Cork Specialty Paper for my card today. These items will all be available August 3rd from the July-December 2021 Mini Catalog.

This is our sketch we had to work with this week.

I started by adhering a panel of the Harvest Meadow DSP to a Bumblebee card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I cut a panel of the Cork Specialty Paper using the 3rd from largest Stitched Rectangle Dies and adhered it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the cone flower image from the Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Harvest Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image in using my Highland Heather and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers. I didn’t want the flowers so purple so I colored over the flower again using my Balmy Blue Stampin’ Blends Marker to get more of a periwinkle color. I colored the flower center in using my Bumblebee Stampin’ Write Marker. I cut the image out using my Harvest Dies. I adhered the flower to the Cork using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Biggest Wish Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I cut the sentiment out using the Harvest Dies. I adhered a length of the 3/8″ Diamond Weave Ribbon (available August 3rd) to the bottom of the cork using a tiny amount of Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the sentiment on top of the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Brushed Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dots (available August 3rd) to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Nature’s Harvest stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the cone flower image from the Nature’s Harvest stamp set on the bottom of the panel in Tuxedo Black Ink and colored it the same as I did for the card front. I adhered the Basic White panel to an Old Olive mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Bumblebee card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the cone flower image from the Nature’s Harvest stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and colored it the same as I did for the card front. I adhered a panel of Harvest Meadow 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 all our projects today.
