Stampin’ Up! Ranunculus Romance 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! Ranunculus Romance Bundle from the January-June 2022 Mini Catalog for my card today.

Here’s our sketch for this week.

My colors are from the TGIF Challenge #367.

I started by adhering a panel of Heart & Home Designer Series Paper to a Soft Succulent card base. I cut a panel of Soft Succulent and Artfully Composed Designer Series Paper using the 4th largest Stitched Rectangle Dies. I adhered the 2 rectangles together using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered die cuts to the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the rose image from the Stampin’ Up! Ranunculus Romance Cling Stamp Set in Smoky Slate Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper. I colored the image using my Fresh Freesia and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image out using the coordinating die from the Ranunculus Dies and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. From panels of Fresh Freesia, Shimmery White and Vellum Paper, I cut 2 of the small floral dies using the Ranunculus Dies from each panel. I adhered them behind the rose die using small amounts of Multipurpose Liquid Glue and Glue Dots.

On a panel of Soft Succulent cardstock, I stamped the script image from the Ranunculus Romance stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink. I stamped the sentiment from the Ranunculus Romance stamp set in Versamark Ink on top of the script image. I sprinkled it with my White Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I cut the sentiment out using the narrowest die from the Stitched Rectangle Dies and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few 2021-2023 In- Color Opal Rounds to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Ranunculus Romance stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the rose image from the Ranunculus Romance stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper, next to the sentiment. I colored the image using my Fresh Freesia and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Fresh Freesia mat and then to the inside of the Soft Succulent card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the rose image from the Ranunculus Romance stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper, on the envelope front and colored it using my Fresh Freesia and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of Heart & Home 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! Honeybee Home 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 everyone is having a wonderful week.

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

I used the Stampin’ Up! Honeybee Bundle along with the Stampin’ Up! Dragonfly Garden Cling Stamp Set and Heart & Home Designer Series paper for my Free Style Collage Card. I was inspired by the beautiful flowers and colors from the inspiration photo.

I hope you will take a moment to visit The Card Concepts and join us for our challenge #174.  How are you inspired by this photo?

I started by adhering a panel of Heart & Home DSP to a Basic White Thick card base. I stamped the daisy image from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. Using my Blending Brush, I added Tahitian Tide Ink (available May 3rd) on the Basic White panel around the stamped image. I colored the image using my Daffodil Delight and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the panel using my Stitched Rectangle Dies.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the foxglove flower and bumblebee images from the Stampin’ Up! Honeybee Home Stamp Set 3 times in Tuxedo Black Ink. I cut the images out with the coordinating from the Honeybee Blooms Dies. I colored the images in using my Basic Black, Daffodil Delight, Flirty Flamingo, Melon Mambo and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers. On the panel of Basic White cardstock, using my Blending Brush I added Orchid Oasis Ink (available May 3rd). I cut one of the stand alone dies from the Honeybee Blooms Dies twice from the inked area. I cut the other stand alone die from the Honeybee Blooms Dies from a panel of Orchid Oasis cardstock (available may 3rd) twice. I cut 3 of the grass dies from the Honeybee Blooms Dies from a panel of Old Olive cardstock.

I arranged all the die-cut pieces on the stamped panel of Basic White cardstock. I adhered the flowers and grass die cuts with Stampin’ Dimensionals, Glue Dots and Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I wrapped a piece of the 2022-2024 In-Color Baker’s Twine (available May 3rd) around the panel twice and tied a bow. I adhered the panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Pebbles Enamel Shapes along the bottom of the panel.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the flower and bumblebee images from the Honeybee Home stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the panel and colored them using my Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic Whtie panel to the inside of the Basic White Thick card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the flower image from the Honeybee Home stamp set on the envelope front and colored it using my Melon Mambo and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of Heart & Home 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! Wild & Sweet Koala Fun Fold for 2022-2023 Annual Catalog Blog Hop

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends and welcome to our 2022-2023 Annual Catalog Blog Hop. If you are hoping over from Akiko Sudano’s blog, thank you for stopping by. If you are starting with me, I hope you will hop through to see everyone’s projects and hopefully we will inspire you. We all used different sets from the upcoming catalog that goes live in just 7 days, next Tuesday YAY!!! Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Wild & Sweet Cling Stamp Set along with the Heart & Home Designer Series Paper for my fun fold card. This set doesn’t come with sentiments, so I paired it up with the Stampin’ Up! Shaded Summer Cling Stamp Set.

I started by scoring and folding the panel of Basic Gray cardstock as stated below for my Z-Fold card. I adhered a panel of Heart & Home DSP to a Smoky Slate mat and then to the card front using multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the koala image from the Wild & Sweet stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image using my Crumb Cake, Smoky Slate and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image out using the 3rd largest Scalloped Contours Dies. I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals only on the left side of the artwork.

On a small panel of Basic Gray cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Shaded Summer stamp set in Versamark Ink. I immediately sprinkled it with my White Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I adhered the sentiment to the left side of the artwork using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Classic Matte Dots to the card front.

On the inside I adhered a panel of Heart & Home DSP to the right side of a Smoky Slate mat using Stampin’ Seal. On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Shaded Summer stamp set in Basic Gray Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to the left side of the Smoky Slate mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to the inside of the Basic Gray card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium envelope. I adhered a strip of the Heart & Home DSP to the envelope front and a panel 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.

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and Happy Earth Day! I feel the need to plant a tree today. I’d love to plant another one in my backyard, but it must be a flowering one. Welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How are you all doing today? Are you ready for the weekend? I hope you are making some fun plans. I’ll be working all day tomorrow and I’m pretty sure all-day Sunday too.

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! Happiness Abounds Photopolymer Stamp Set (available May 3rd) along with the Heart & Home Designer Series Paper for my card today.

On a piece of Vellum Paper, I stamped the rose and leaf images from the Happiness Abounds stamp set in Versamark Ink. I immediately sprinkled it with my Silver Embossing Powder and set it with my Heat Tool. I flipped the Vellum Paper over to the non-embossed side and colored the images using my Parakeet Party and Sweet Sorbet Stampin’ Blends Markers (available May 3rd).

I folded my card base on the scored line. I adhered the smaller Basic Gray panel to the back of the top flap using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the panel of Blushing Bride cardstock to the front or the gray panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the Vellum panel to the Blushing Bride panel only where the sentiment will be adhered using Stampin’ Seal and a couple Glue Dots on the top under the ribbon.

On the strip of Basic Gray cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Happiness Abounds stamp set in Versamark Ink. I immediately sprinkled it with my White Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I adhered the sentiment to the Vellum panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I wrapped a piece of Sweet Sorbet 1/8″ Metallic Ribbon (available May 3rd) around the top card flap and tied a bow. I added a few Iridescent Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

I adhered a panel of Heart & Home DSP to the inside of the Basic Gray card base. On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Happiness Abounds stamp set in Basic Gray Ink. I stamped the rose images from the Happiness Abounds stamp set in Blushing Bride Ink. I adhered the Basic Whtie panel to the inside of the card base under the outer flap using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the rose images from the Happiness Abounds stamp set in tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I colored the images in using my Parakeet Party and Sweet Sorbet Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of Heart & Home DSP on the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Some of the items used for today’s card will be available May 3rd. 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! Shaded Summer CAS

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

Today’s card is a super simple quick card. I don’t do simple too often, but I wanted to try this and I was happy with the results so I made it into a card. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Shaded Summer Cling Stamp Set along with the Heart & Home Designer Series Paper for my CAS card today. I played along with the CAS on Friday Challenge #227 ‘Flowers’.

I started by stamping the larger floral image from the Shaded Summer stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Heart & Home DSP card front.

I colored just the leaves of the image in using my Just Jade Stampin’ Blends Marker.

I stamped the sentiment from the Shaded Summer stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink next to the floral image. I adhered the card front to a Basic Black card base. I added a few Silver & Clear Epoxy Essentials to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Shaded Summer stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the smaller floral image from the Shaded Summer stamp set on the bottom of the panel in Tuxedo Black Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to the inside of the Basic Black card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the floral image from the Shaded Summer stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of Heart & Home DSP 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!!

Stampin’ Up! Easter Friends for Fun Fold Friday with Video Tutorial

Good Friday morning my stamping friends, welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Are you looking forward to the weekend? I have off on Saturday and have to work all day on Sunday.

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! Easter Friends Cling Stamp Set along with the Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper and the Heart & Home Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by adhering a panel of Pansy Petals DSP to a Fresh Freesia card base. I stamped the bunny image from the Easter Friends stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink, stamping off once, on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I fussy cut the bunny using my Paper Snips. I adhered the bunny to the center of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I cut out the smallest 2 dies from the Flowers of Home Dies from a panel of Soft Succulent cardstock. I adhered the 2 stems to the bunny’s hands using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered a few Loose Flower Flourishes to the stems using Glue Dots and Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

For the shadowbox frame I started by adhering a panel of Heart & Home DSP to a panel of Fresh Freesia cardstock. You do not have to adhere the DSP to the cardstock, I just wanted to make sure it was going to be very stable. I scored it on the 5 1/2″ side at 1/2″, 1″, 4 1/2″ & 5″. I cut the center out using the 2nd largest die from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. I folded on the score lines making the 1″ & 4 1/2″ mountain folds and the 1/2″ & 5″ valley folds. I adhered the frame to the card front using Tear & Tape adhesive.

Here is a view from the top. The cardstock helped to make it pop out a bit.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Easter Friends stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink. I cut the sentiment out using my Stitched So Sweetly Dies and adhered it to the bottom of the frame using Glue Dots. I added a few more of the Loose Flower Flourishes to the sentiment.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Easter Friends stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the bunny image from the Easter Friends stamp set to the side of the sentiment in Smoky Slate Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper. I stamped the grass image below the bunny in Pear Pizzazz Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Fresh Freesia mat and then to the inside of the Fresh Freesia card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the bunny image from the Easter Friends stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink on the envelope front stamping off once. I stamped the grass image in Pear Pizzazz Ink below the bunny. I adhered a panel of Pansy Petals 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! 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! Honeybee Home for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good St. Patrick’s Day morning my stamping friends! Welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. I hope everyone is doing well today. Is anyone making corned beef and cabbage for dinner tonight? Even though I’m 100% Italian, my mom used to make it every year on St. Patrick’s Day. I don’t get it at all anymore unless my neighbor makes it and give me a bowl. My family does NOT like it at all and I’m not going to make it just for myself.

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 felt the need to make something using green today since it’s St. Patrick’s Day, so I used the Stampin’ Up! Honeybee Home Bundle along with the Heart & Home Designer Series Paper for my card today.

Here’s our sketch for this week.

I started by adhering a panel of Heart & Home DSP to the front of a Basic White Thick card base. I cut a panel of Garden Green cardstock using the 2nd largest die from the Scalloped Contours Dies. I adhered a panel of Heart & Home DSP to the center of the die. I adhered the layered die to the center of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I scored a strip of Basic White cardstock at 1″ & 1 1/4″ on both ends. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Honeybee Home Cling Stamp Set in Smoky Slate Ink in the center section of the strip. Using my Banner Pick A Punch, I cut both ends of the cardstock. I folded the Basic White strip on the score lines to make a raised banner. I adhered the banner to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Basic Whtie cardstock I stamped the 3 bumblebee images from the Honeybee Home stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the images using my So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the bumblebees out using my Honeybee Blooms Dies. From a panel of Garden Green cardstock I cut 5 the leafy dies using my Flowers of Home Dies. I adhered 4 of the leafy dies under the sentiment using Glue Dots. I adhered 2 of the bumblebees to the sentiment banner using Glue Dots. I added a few Basic Gray Classic Matte Dots to the banner.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! All For Baby Photopolymer Stamp Set in Smoky Slate Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the bumblebee image from the Honeybee Home stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on either side of the sentiment and colored them in using my So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the leafy die under the sentiment using a tiny amount of Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the bumblebee die on top of the leafy die using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Garden Green mat and then to the inside of the Thick Basic White card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the bumblebee image from Honeybee Home stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front where I will be writing the address. I colored the bees using my So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the floral image from the Honeybee Home stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper, on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of Heart & Home 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.

Stampin’ Up! Honeybee Home Paneled Thank You

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends. Hope your weekend is starting out super. I’ll be going to my nephew’s basketball game this morning and I might have some crafting time for me this afternoon.

Before I get started, I wanted to remind you that you only have a few days left for my Valentine special ‘STUCK ON YOU’. CLICK HERE for all the details. A $50 order gets you a triple WIN, Sale-a-bration Item, Free Item from me and a Free Adhesive from me.

Last Tuesday night was our Team Stamp Studio. It’s part meeting and part Mystery Stamping!! My upline Jaimie gives us measurements of cardstock and DSP and she gives us clues of what we have to do. It’s always a whole lot of fun and great to see how everyone’s cards turn out. Here is my card from Tuesday’s Mystery Stamping.

I used my Stampin’ Up! Honeybee Home Bundle along with my Stampin’ Up! Blessings of Home Cling Stamp Set and Heart & Home Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by embossing a Fresh Freesia card front using the Timber 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the card front to a Fresh Freesia card base. I adhered 2 panels of the Heart & Home DSP to Soft Succulent mats and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic Whtie cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Blessings of Home stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink. I adhered the sentiment to a Soft Succulent mat and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the Foxglove Flower image from the Stampin’ Up! Honeybee Home Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image using my Fresh Freesia and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image out using my Honeybee Blooms Dies and adhered it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I made a small bow using the Soft Succulent 3/8″ Open Weave Ribbon and adhered it to the flower using a Glue Dot. I added a few 2021-2023 In-Color Jewels and a Bumblebee Trinket to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Honeybee Home stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the Foxglove floral image from the Honeybee Home stamp set on the bottom of the panel in Tuxedo Black Ink and colored it with my Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Soft Succulent mat and then to the inside of the Fresh Freesia card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the small floral image from the Honeybee Home stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and colored it using my Fresh Freesia and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of the Heart & Home 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! Blessings of Home Birthday

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. We’re halfway through the week already and almost halfway through the month. Another month flying by.

I have a quick card for you today. When I saw the colors for this challenge, I knew exactly what I wanted to do. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Blessings of Home Cling Stamp Set along with the Stampin’ Up! Calming Camellia Cling Sale-a-bration Host Stamp Set and the Heart & Home Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I joined in with Seize the Birthday color Challenge #229.

I started by adhering a panel of the Heart & Home DSP to a Basic Gray card base.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the large floral image from the Blessings of Home stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink. I colored just the larger flowers in using my Balmy Blue Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Balmy Blue mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Balmy Blue cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Calming Camellia stamp set in Versamark Ink. I immediately sprinkled it with my Silver Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I adhered a piece of Silver Simply Elegant Trim to the card front using Stampin’ Seal and then the sentiment over the trim using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Rhinestones Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Calming Camellia stamp set in Basic Gray Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the smaller floral image from the Blessings of Home stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink on the bottom of the panel. I colored just the larger flower using my Balmy Blue Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Balmy Blue mat and then to the inside if the Basic Gray card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the smaller floral image from the Blessings of Home stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink on the envelope front and colored it using my Balmy Blue Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of the Heart & Home 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! Ranunculus Romance for the January-June 2022 Mini Catalog Blog Hop

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends. Welcome to our January-June 2022 Mini Catalog Blog Hop. If you’ve hopped over from Akiko Sudano’s blog, thank you for stopping by. We thought this would be a great way for you to see some of the beautiful products that will be available coming up Mini Catalog starting on January 4, 2022. We each got to pick a stamp set, bundle or suite that we wanted to feature. I hope you enjoy seeing everyone’s beautiful projects. Here’s mine using a new bundle from the Mini Catalog along with some of the gorgeous new Designer Series Paper.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Ranunculus Romance Bundle along with the Heart and Home Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by stamping the rose image and the small floral image from the Ranunculus Romance stamp set. I colored the stamps using my Fresh Freesia, Just Jade and Misty Moonlight Stampin’ Write Markers. I cut the images out using my Ranunculus Dies. I also cut a flower using one of the Ranunculus Dies from a panel of Pale Papaya cardstock. I adhered the die cut images on a Heart & Home Doilie using Glue Dots and Stampin’ Dimensionals

I adhered a panel of the Heart & Home DSP to a Basic Gray card base. On a strip of Fresh Freesia 2021-2023 In-Color Shimmer Vellum I stamped the postage image in Basic Gray Ink, stamping off once. I stamped the sentiment from the Ranunculus Romance stamp set in Basic Gray Ink on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the shimmer vellum using Stampin’ Seal just where the doily was going to be adhered.

I adhered the artwork to the shimmer vellum using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I tied a small bow using the Pale Papaya 3/8″ Open Weave Ribbon and adhered it with a Glue Dot to the bottom of the flowers. I added a few Iridescent Rhinestones Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Ranunculus Romance stamp set in Basic Gray Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the rose image from the Ranunculus Romance stamp set on the bottom of the panel coloring it in the same with my Stampin’ Write Markers, as I did for the card front. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Basic Gray mat and then to the inside of the Basic Gray card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the rose image from the Ranunculus Romance stamp set on the envelope front coloring it the same as I did for the card front. I adhered a panel of the Heart & Home 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.
