Stampin’ Up! Sparkle of The Season for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers. Welcome to Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop. It’s the 2nd Tuesday of the month so that means Blog Hop Day!! If you are starting with me, be sure to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects. If you’ve hopped over from Shirley Gentry’s blog, welcome to my blog and thank you for stopping by. The theme this month is “Giving Thanks”.  We can interpret this however we want.  Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Sparkle of The Season Bundle along with the Bloom Where You’re Planted Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by adhering a panel of Bloom Where You’re Planted DSP to a Cinnamon Cider mat.

From a panel of Cinnamon Cider cardstock, I cut the leafy wreath using my Seasonal Swirls Dies. I adhered the wreath to the card front. I stamped the trio leaf image from the Stampin’ Up! Sparkle of The Season Photopolymer Stamp Set in Bumblebee and Real Red Inks inside the wreath on the DSP. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the leaf image from the Sparkle of The Season stamp set 2 times in Bumblebee Ink and 2 times in Real Red Ink. I stamped the other leafy image from the Sparkle of The Season stamp set in Just Jade Ink twice. I cut all the images out, along with the small floral die from a panel of Vellum Paper, using my Seasonal Swirls Dies.

I tied a bow using the Just Jade 3/8″ Gingham Ribbon from Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack and adhered it to the bottom of the wreath. I adhered the die cut leaf images under the bow. On the Basic White panel I stamped the sentiment from the Sparkle of The Season stamp set in Cinnamon Cider Ink and cut it out using my Hippo & Friends Dies and adhered it to the bottom of the card front. I adhered the card front to a Cinnamon Cider card base. I added a few Bumblebee 2020-2022 In-Color Square Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Sparkle of The Season stamp set in Cinnamon Cider Ink. I stamped the trio leaf image on either side of the sentiment in Bumblebee and Real Red Inks. I stamped the leaf images from the Sparkle of the Season stamp set in Bumblebee, Just Jade and Real Red Inks on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Cinnamon Cider mat and then to the inside of the Cinnamon Cider card base.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the leaf images from the Sparkle of The Season stamp set in Bumblebee, Just Jade and Real Red Inks on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of Bloom Where You’re Planted DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Gorgeous Leaves

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone doing today? We’re halfway through the week and the weekend is right around the corner.

It’s time for another inspiration challenge for The Card Concepts. After taking a summer break, we’re back. Our 1st inspiration photo is Colorful Fall. Here is my card that I was inspired by the photo.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Gorgeous Leaves Bundle and the Stampin’ Up! Love of Leaves Photopolymer Stamp Set for my card today. I was inspired by the beautiful colors of the leaves for my clean and layered card.

I hope you will take a moment to visit The Card Concept and join us for our challenge #159. How are you inspired by this photo.

I started by randomly stamping the leaf images from the Stampin’ Up! Gorgeous Leaves Cling Stamp Set in Bumblebee, Cherry Cobbler and Fresh Freesia Inks on a Basic White panel. I stamped the splotch image from the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink randomly on the panel.

I embossed the panel using my Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the panel to a Thick Basic White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. Using my Intricate Leaves Dies I cut 1 branch from a panel of Soft Suede cardstock and 3 leaves from panels of Bumblebee, Cherry Cobbler and Fresh Freesia cardstock. I stamped the sentiment from the Love of Leaves stamp set on a panel of Basic White cardstock in soft Succulent Ink. I cut the sentiment out using my Hippo & Friends Dies.

I arranges the branch and leaves on the sentiment die cut and adhered them using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and Glue Dots. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I tied a small knot using the 3/8″ Soft Succulent Open Weave Ribbon and adhered it to the stems using a Glue Dot. I added a few Brushed Metallic Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Love of Leaves stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the leaves from the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set in Bumblebee, Cherry Cobbler and Fresh Freesia Ink around the top of the panel. I stamped the splotch image from the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink, stamping off once, around the sentiment. I adhered the Basic White panel to the inside of the Thick Basic White card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To finish my card I stamped the leaves and splotch images from the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set in Bumblebee, Cherry Cobbler, Fresh Freesia and Soft Succulent Inks on the envelope front and 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! Sweet As A Peach Birthday 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 Color Challenge. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects. Here is my card using this weeks Colors.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Sweet As A Peach Bundle along with the You’re A Peach Designer Series Paper for my card today.

These are our colors for this week.

My design is from Sunday Stamps Getting Sketchy #262.

I started by adhering a panel of You’re A Peach DSP to a Balmy Blue card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I cut 2 panels of You’re A Peach DSP using the Ornate Layers Dies. I cut the 2 panels in half and adhered them to a Calypso Coral mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. This was how I was able to make the strips long enough for my card front. I adhered the 2 layered panel to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the stem/leaf image from the Stampin’ Up! Sweet As A Peach Photopolymer Stamp Set in Pear Pizzazz Ink. I stamped the trio of peach image from the Sweet As A Peach stamp set on the stem image in Pale Papaya Ink, sponged with my Dauber in Calypso Coral Ink. I cut the image out using my Hippo & Friends Dies. I stamped the trio peach image from the Sweet As A Peach stamp set in Pale Papaya Ink, sponged with Calypso Coral Ink, on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I cut the peach trio out using my Peach Dies. I cut 2 of the leaf dies from the Peach Dies out of a panel of Pear Pizzazz cardstock. I adhered the leaves to the back of 2 of the die cut peaches using a Glue Dot then adhered them to the artwork using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the artwork to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from Sweet As A Peach stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink. I adhered the sentiment to a Calypso Coral mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Mango Melody Artistry Blooms Adhesive-Backed Sequins to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the stem/leaf image from the Sweet As A Peach stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on the top of a Basic White panel. I stamped the peach trio image from the Sweet As A Peach stamp set in Pale Papaya Ink, sponged with Calypso Coral Ink, on the stems. I stamped the sentiments from the Sweet As A Peach stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on the Basic White panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Pear Pizzazz mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Balmy Blue card base using Stampin’ Seal. I added a couple Mango Melody Artistry Blooms Adhesive- Backed Sequins to the Basic White panel.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the large peach image from the Sweet As A Peach stamp set in Pale Papaya Ink, sponged with Calypso Coral Ink, on the envelope front. I stamped the stem/leaves in Pear Pizzazz Ink on the peach. I adhered a panel of You’re A Peach DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Love of Leaves 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 Theme Challenge. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects. Here is my card using this weeks Theme.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Love of Leaves Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Pattern Party Host Designer Series Paper for my card this week.

I went with leave for my Outdoors theme.

I started by coloring a panel of the Pattern Party DSP using my Stampin’ Blends Markers. I just used all different colors and it’s too many to list so you’ll have to use your imagination and pick your favorite colors to use 😉 I adhered the DSP card front to a Bumblebee card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue

I stamped the sentiment from the Love of Leaves stamp set in Old Olive Ink on a Basic White panel and cut it our using my Hippo & Friends Dies. I adhered some Linen Thread to the card front with a small amount of Stampin’ Seal then adhered the sentiment over the top using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut 4 of the leaves from the Stitched Leaves Dies in Blackberry Bliss, Bumblebee, Pumpkin Pie and Real Red cardstock. I arranged the leaves on the bottom of the sentiment and adhered them using Stampin’ Dimensionals and Glue Dots. I made a bow using the Linen Thread and adhered it to the leaf stems using a Glue Dot. I added a few 2019-2022 In-Color Square Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Moments Cling Stamp Set in Old Olive Ink on a Basic White panel. I adhered a strip of the Pattern Party DSP to the bottom of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the Basic White panel to an Old Olive mat using Stampin’ Seal then embossed the top using my Stitched Leaves Dies. I added a couple more leaves that I cut using my Stitched Leaves Dies from Cherry Cobbler and Misty Moonlight cardstock using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to the inside of my Bumblebee card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of the Pattern Party DSP to the envelope front and a panel to the envelope flap.

It’s time for another inspiration challenge for The Card Concept. For the next 2 weeks we have a Vacation Time challenge. Here is my card that was inspired from the challenge photo.

I used the Stampin’ Up! A Good Man Cling Stamp Set for my card today. I was inspired by the trees in the photo and the woodgrain in the inspiration photo for my Clean and Layered card. I decided to make a card of a man vacationing and relaxing.

I hope you will take a moment to visit The Card Concept and join us this week to play along with our challenge #157. How are you inspired by this photo?

I joined in with Always Fun Challenges #217, “Layers”.

I started by adhering a panel of the Beauty of The Earth DSP to an Early Espresso card base using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered 2 more panels of the Beauty of The Earth DSP to Early Espresso mats using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the smaller panel to the card front using Stampin’ Seal and the ‘tree’ panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the image from A Good Man stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image in using my Bermuda Bay, Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Ivory, Pool Party and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image out using my Hippo & Friends Dies. From a panel of Early Espresso cardstock I cut the next size larger Hippo & Friends Dies and adhered the artwork using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the matted artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from A Good Man stamp set in Night of Navy Ink. I cut the sentiment out using my Stitched Rectangle Dies. I wrapped a piece of Linen Thread around the sentiment twice and tied a knot. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from A Good Man stamp set in Night of Navy Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I adhered a panel of Beauty of The Earth DSP to the bottom of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the Basic White panel to an Early Espresso mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Early Espresso card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the image from A Good Man stamp set on the envelope front in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image in the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of Beauty of The Earth 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! Enjoy The Moment Masculine Fun Fold

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends. Happy June!!! How was everyone’s Memorial Day? I had my niece and her boys over for a picnic. It was nice getting together with family. I’ll be at work all day for my 1st of the month billing. I usually have off on Tuesday’s except on the last and first of the month. I do get off tomorrow though YAY!! Tonight we have our monthly Stamp Camp card class. I’m really looking forward to tonight’s class. Last month I gave everyone a stamp set and a pack of DSP and gave them homework to design and make a card to bring tonight to class. I can’t wait to see what everyone has created with the product I gave them.

Today’s card is one that we will be making tonight at my Stamp Camp card class. Even though it’s a fun fold, it’s a simple one. I’ve made all the scores for everyone, so they just have to adhere the paper and do a little stamping. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Enjoy The Moment Cling Stamp Set for my card today along with the Well Suited Designer Series Paper.

I started by adhering the end section of the card base together using Multipurpose Liquid Glue on the inside sealing front to back together.

I adhered the small panel of Well Suited DSP to a Basic White mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the sealed side of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I wrapped a piece of the Night of Navy Bakers Twine from the Well Suited Twine Combo Pack (this will be retiring at the end of June), around the end twice and tied a small bow.

I adhered a panel of the Well Suited DSP to a Basic White mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the Cajun Craze card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. On a panel of Basic White card stock I stamped the image from the Enjoy The Moment stamp set in Cajun Craze Ink, stamping off twice on scrap paper. I stamped the sentiment from the Enjoy The Moment stamp set in Night of Navy Ink over the floral image. I cut the image out using the smallest die from my Hippo & Friends Dies. I adhered the artwork to a Night of Navy mat which I cut from the next largest die from the Hippo & Friends Dies, using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the matted panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Better Places Host Cling Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink. I adhered a strip of Well Suited DSP to the side of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Night of Navy mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Cajun Craze card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I stamped the image from Enjoy The Moment stamp set in Cajun Craze Ink on the front of a Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a panel of the Well Suited 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! Sweet Ice Cream Birthday

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends. How has everyone’s week started off? I hope everyone has a productive week. Is everyone getting their shopping lists ready? ONE week before the new 2021-2022 Annual Catalog goes live. I can’t wait to get lots of new products.

For today I decided to play with a bundle from the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog. It’s a pretty quick card too. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Sweet Ice Cream Bundle for my card along with the Ice Cream Corner Designer Series Paper.

I started by cutting the center of a Ice Cream Corner DSP card front using my Hippo & Friends Dies. I adhered the card front to a Blackberry Bliss card base using Stampin’ Seal.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the ice cream cone from the Stampin’ Up! Sweet Ice Cream Photopolymer Stamp Set in Cinnamon Cider Ink, stamping off once. I stamped the detail cone image in Cinnamon Cider Ink on top of the solid image and punched the cone out using my Ice Cream Cone Builder Punch. I stamped the ice cream scoop image from the Sweet Ice Cream stamp set in Petal Pink and Pool Party Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock and punched them out using the Ice Cream Cone Builder Punch. I stamped the sentiment from the Sweet Ice Cream stamp set in Early Espresso Ink and fussy cut it using my Paper Snips.

I adhered the Pool Party ice cream to the cone using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I stamped the sprinkles from the Sweet Ice Cream stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the Petal Pink ice cream and adhered it on top of the Pool Party scoop using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the ice cream cone to the opening of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the sentiment across the bottom of the cone using Stampin’ Dimensionals only on the ends.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Sweet Ice Cream stamp set in Early Espresso Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I adhered a strip of the Ice Cream Corner DSP to the top of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the Basic White panel to the inside of the Blackberry Bliss card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of the Ice Cream Corner 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!!

Then again, we know that grass-stained pants and sliding into home aren’t just for the boys—this month’s kit is a triple threat! Designed with men, sport-lovin’ ladies, and baseball fanatics in mind, anyone would bounce from their spot in the bleachers if they received a classic card from the Batter Up! kit. After all, this month’s kit was made for celebrating the all-stars, MVPs, and the greats—no matter what team they play on!

Step up to the plate, take a swing, and knock it out of the park! With the Batter Up! Paper Pumpkin Kit, it’s your turn to go to bat for all the people who’ve gone to bat for you. This month’s timeless kit with a “throwback” theme contains enough grand slam supplies to create nine cards—and coordinating envelopes—featuring classic colors, pinwheel and pinstripe patterns, and vintage-washed paper pieces. There’s no “batter” way to root, root, root for your home team and honor the all-stars in your life!

A beloved baseball-themed kit would be incomplete without the sport’s signature, sticky snack—the official bubble gum of the MLB! A favorite in the field, the Batter Up! Paper Pumpkin Kit contains a couple sticks of the chewy staple; chew while you craft, slide a piece into a card, or save it for later.

Send a seventh-inning stretch in a classic card with all-star stripes, a nostalgic nod, and a stamp set fit for an MVP! But, before you give it all you’ve got, give this month’s promotional video a watch. See what the Batter Up! kit is all about! Play ball!

Stampin’ Up! Art Gallery Quick and Easy Card Pack

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends. How has everyone’s weekend started off? I’ll be at work all day today and tomorrow. Last I heard, we will not be getting snow this weekend, but it’s still early to tell.

Today I have something a little different for you. I don’t have step by step instructions for you since I made a pack of cards. This would make a great gift for someone tied up with some ribbon or put in one of our Acetate Card Boxes and decorated. If you have any questions about any of the cards, please message me and I will explain how I made them. Here are the cards.

I used 1 sheet of the Fine Art Floral Designer Series Paper and 1 sheet of the Golden Garden Designer Series Acetate to make all 6 cards. I placed the acetate over the DSP, tacked it in a couple places using Glue Dots and cut 4″ X 5 1/4″ panels.

This card I used So Saffron and Poppy Parade cardstock and just did a simple layering. I stamped the sentiment from Stampin’ Up! Many Messages Cling Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink and cut it our with the Messages Dies. Adhered it to Hippo and Friends die cut mat and adhered it to the card front.

This card I used Petal Pink and Terracotta Tile cardstock and just did a simple layering. I stamped the sentiment from Stampin’ Up! Dressed To Impress Photopolymer Stamp Set in Old Olive Ink and cut it our with the Label Me Fancy Punch and adhered it to the card front. Stamped the large flower from the Stampin’ Up! Art Gallery Photopolymer Stamp Set in Petal Pink & Terracotta Tile, stem in Old Olive and cut images out with Floral Gallery Dies.

This card I used Bumblebee and Old Olive cardstock and just did a simple layering. I stamped the sentiment from Stampin’ Up! Strong & Beautiful Cling Stamp Set in Old Olive Ink, cut it our with the Stitched Nested Labels Dies and adhered it to the card front. Stamped the flower from the Stampin’ Up! Art Gallery Photopolymer Stamp Set using my Bumblebee and Old Olive Stampin’ Write Markers and cut image out with Floral Gallery Dies.

This card I used Pool Party and Night of Navy cardstock and just did an angle layering. I stamped the sentiment from Stampin’ Up! Art Gallery Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink, cut it out with the Floral Gallery Dies and the large sentiment out of Night of Navy cardstock and adhered them to the card front.

This card I used Blushing Bride and Merry Merlot cardstock and just did a simple layering. I stamped the sentiment from Stampin’ Up! Strong & Beautiful Cling Stamp Set in Merry Merlot Ink, cut it our with the Stitched Shapes Dies. I cut a scalloped mat from Merry Merlot cardstock using the Layering Ovals Dies, adhered the sentiment and adhered it to the card front.

This card I used Flirty Flamingo and Mossy Meadow cardstock and just did a simple layering. I stamped the sentiment from Stampin’ Up! Art Gallery Photopolymer Stamp Set in Mossy Meadow Ink, cut it our with the Messages Dies. I cut an oval mat using the Layering Ovals Dies, adhered the sentiment and adhered it to the card front.

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

Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Brilliance Birthday for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Is anyone doing anything for the weekend? I’ll be working all weekend at 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 very much. 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 that I made.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Brilliance Bundle, coming March 2nd, and the Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Wishes Cling Stamp Set for my fun fold card. I played along with the Aud Sentiments Challenge #268, ‘Anything Goes + A Sentiment’. I also played along with Watercooler Wednesday Challenge #308.

I started by scoring and cutting a Misty Moonlight card base at 1 3/4″, 3 1/2″, 5 1/4″ & 7″. I lined the long edge of the card base at the 1 1/4″ mark on my trimmer and cut from the 1 3/4″ score line up to the 5 1/4″ score line. I slid the card base so the opposite long edge was lined up at the 1 1/4″ mark on my trimmer and again cut from the 1 3/4″ score line up to the 5 1/4″ score line. I folded the card like an accordion having the cut portion popping out. I stamped the butterflies from the Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Brilliance Cling Stamp (coming March 2nd) in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I cut the butterflies out using the Brilliant Wings Dies (coming March 2nd). I colored the butterflies in using my Bermuda Bay, Mint Macaron, Misty Moonlight and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers.

Above is a top view of how the card base should look.

I adhered a panel of the new Butterfly Bijou 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper (coming March 2nd) to the front of the card base using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered a panel of the Natural Touch Specialty Paper (coming March 2nd) to the pop out portion overlapping the front DSP panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Butterfly Wishes stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink and cut the panel out using the 2nd largest square from the Stitched Shapes Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the card front panel using Stampin’ Seal and adhered a butterfly to it using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered 4 small panels of Butterfly Bijou DSP to the card base using Multipurpose Liquid glue.

I adhered a panel of the Butterfly Bijou DSP to the inside of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered a panel of the Natural Touch Specialty Paper to the pop out panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I stamped the sentiment from the Butterfly Wishes stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock and adhered it to the pop out panel using Stampin’ Seal. I cut a small butterfly from another panel of Butterfly Bijou DSP using my Paper Snips and adhered it to the sentiment using Glue Dots. I adhered a panel of Natural Touch Specialty Designer Paper to the front of a small Basic White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I cut a panel of Basic White cardstock using the Hippo & Friends Dies. I stamped the sentiment from the Butterfly Wishes stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink in the center of the die cut panel and adhered it to the 2nd card front using Stampin’ Seal.

On the inside of the small card base I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Punch Party Photopolymer Sale-a-bration Host Stamp Set in Misty Moonlight Ink in the center. I colored the flowers and leaves in on the sentiment using my Magenta Madness and Just Jade Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a butterfly to the inside using Glue Dots. I adhered the small card base to the back of the larger card base using Stampin’ Seal. I added a few 2020-2022 In-Color Enamel Dots to the card fronts.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped one of the butterflies from the Butterfly Brilliance stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and colored it in using my Bermuda Bay, Mint Macaron and Misty Moonlight Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of Butterfly Bijou 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.

Stampin’ Up! Back On Your Feet for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends and welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. I hope everyone is doing well. If you are hopping over from Akiko, 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 awesome projects. Here is my card for today.

I needed to make a card for a coworker that has suffered from a heart attach this past weekend. I immediately thought about the Stampin’ Up! Back On Your Feet Cling Stamp Set to go with our sketch. Here is our sketch for this weeks challenge.

I started by adhering a panel of Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper to a Pretty Peacock card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I cut another panel of Forever Greenery DSP using my Stitched Rectangle Dies and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Seal.

I stamped the turtle image from the Back On Your Feet stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I colored the image in using my Just Jade, Mint Macaron, Pretty Peacock and Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image using my Stitched Shapes Dies. I cut a scalloped square from a panel of Pretty Peacock cardstock using my Layering Squares Dies and adhered the artwork to it using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the matted artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Back On Your Feet stamp set on a panel of Basic White cardstock in Pretty Peacock Ink. I cut the sentiment out using my Hippo & Friends Dies and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Matte Black Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Back On Your Feet stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the sloth image from the Back On Your Feet stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the side of the panel and colored it in using my Crumb Cake, Ivory, Shaded Spruce and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Mint Macaron mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Pretty Peacock card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of Forever Greenery DSP to the envelope front and a panel to the envelope flap. I stamped the turtle image from the Back On Your Feet stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and colored it using my Just Jade, Mint Macaron, Pretty Peacock and Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends Markers.
