Stampin’ Up! Daisy Garden Thinking of You

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. Happy Friendship Day and Happy August. I can’t believe it’s August already. I’m not ready to be winding down the summer yet, I need at least 3 more months. How is everyone’s weekend going? I had to go back to work twice yesterday since the mail was so late. The good thing was, I was all by myself in the office so I brought my dog with me to hang out. She wasn’t sure about the situation and was just sniffing and pacing all around the office. She did get some visitors and a lot of pets though.

Today’s card is similar to yesterday’s card, another CAS one. You have to let me know in the comments which card you like better. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Daisy Garden Cling Stamp Set along with the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper for my card today. This is such an awesome pack of DSP and you can get it until Tuesday on sale for 15% off, I may just have to order another pack. It’s one of my favorites.

I started by stamping the Daisy Garden image on a panel of In Good Taste DSP in Bumblebee Ink. I immediately sprinkled it with my Clear Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. Did you know that you can make any color embossing powder just by using our inks and the Clear Embossing Powder.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Quiet Meadow Cling Stamp Set on the top of the card front panel in Just Jade Ink. I adhered the card front to a Just Jade mat using Stampin’ Seal.

I wrapped a piece of the Just Jade 3/8″ Gingham Ribbon from the Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack around the panel and tied a bow. I adhered the card front to a Bumblebee card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Just Jade 2020-2022 In-Color Square Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the Daisy Garden image on a panel of Basic White cardstock in Bumblebee Ink, stamping off on scrap paper once. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Inspired Thoughts Cling Stamp Set in Just Jade Ink over the daisy image. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Just Jade mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Bumblebee card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I stamped the Daisy Garden image on the front of a Basic White Medium Envelope in Bumblebee Ink. I adhered a panel of In Good Taste 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! Daisy Garden Anniversary

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends. Welcome to the weekend and Happy End of July. Hope you have something fun planned. Looks like it’s going to be a beauty here, upper 70’s and sunny. It was beautiful sleeping last night, it was in the low 50’s. I shut off the A/C, opened the windows and turned on my attic fan. I got to fall asleep listening to the crickets, lol.

Today’s card is a quick and easy one that I think we will be making at our class on Tuesday night. Actually today and tomorrow’s card are very similar, you have to let me know which one you like better. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Daisy Garden Cling Stamp Set along with the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper for my card. This DSP is one of the 9 that are on sale until Tuesday for 15% off. Now’s the perfect time to stock up and save.

I started by stamping the Daisy Garden image in Versamark Ink on a panel of In Good Taste DSP. I immediately sprinkled it with my White Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. For a little stability, I adhered the card front to a panel of Bumblebee cardstock using Stampin’ Seal.

I wrapped a piece of the Bumblebee 1/4″ Gingham Ribbon around the panel and tied a bow. I adhered the card front to a Bumblebee card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a scrap of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Many Messages Cling Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink and cut it out using my Messages Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the card front over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the Daisy Garden image in Early Espresso Ink, stamping off 3 times on scrap paper, on a Basic White panel. I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern Cling Stamp Set and the Stampin’ Up! Elegantly Said Cling Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink over the daisy image. I adhered the Basic White panel to an Early Espresso mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Bumblebee card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I stamped part of the Daisy Garden stamp on the front of a Basic White Medium Envelope in Early Espresso Ink, stamping off once. I adhered a panel of In Good Taste 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.

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

Stampin’ Up! Plentiful Plants Dear Friend

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends. Hope your weekend is starting off with some fun activities planned. I have off today and I’ll be at work tomorrow. I don’t have plans for today yet except to do a little trimming of some plants in my gardens. That will be done first thing this morning since we are expected to be in the mid 90’s today.

Today’s card uses one of the beautiful packs of DSP that is on sale right now. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Plentiful Plants Bundle form my card along with In Good Taste Designer Series Paper today.

My design is from Just Add Ink Challenge #563.

I started by embossing a Gray Granite card front using the Macramé 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered a panel of In Good Taste DSP to the top of the panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I wrapped a piece of Evening Evergreen 3/8″ Open Weave Ribbon around the panel and tied a knot.

Using the Stampin’ Up! Plentiful Plants Photopolymer Stamp Set, I stamped the flower pot in Pale Papaya Ink, the leafy plant in Soft Succulent Ink and the berry plant in Fresh Freesia Ink. I cut the images out using my Perfect Plants Dies. I cut the macramé plant holder from a panel of Evening Evergreen cardstock. I arranged the flowerpot and plants the way I wanted them in the plant holder and adhered them with Multipurpose Liquid Glue and Glue Dots. I threaded a piece of Gray Granite bakers twine from the Bakers Twine Essential Pack through the holder and adhered it to the back of the card front with Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the card front to a Gray Granite card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Plentiful Plants stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink. I adhered the sentiment to the bottom of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Evening Evergreen 2021-2023 In-Color Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Plentiful Plants stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the flowerpot image from the Plentiful Plants stamp set on the bottom in Pale Papaya Ink and the leafy plane in the flowerpot in Soft Succulent Ink. I adhered a strip of In Good Taste DSP to the bottom of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the Basic White panel to an Evening Evergreen mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Gray Granite card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the flowerpot image from the Plentiful Plants stamp set in Pale Papaya Ink on the bottom front of the envelope. I stamped the plant image in Soft Succulent in the pot. I adhered a panel of In Good Taste 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! Sailing Home Sympathy

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends and Happy Independence Day!! Hope you have some fun plans for today. I’m having a relaxing day at home, no plans here.

Today’s card is a similar design that I did this past week, I just change the image and paper a little. This is one we will probably be making at my class on Tuesday night. I had one person ask for a nautical card, one ask for a sympathy and one ask to use a specific stamp set. So I used all 3 suggestions in 1 card. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Sailing Home Cling Stamp Set along with the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by adhering a panel of In Good Taste DSP to a Night of Navy mat using Stampin’ Seal.

On a panel of Night of Navy cardstock I stamped the sentiment form the Sailing Home stamp set in Versamark Ink. I immediately sprinkled it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I cut the sentiment out using the 3rd from the smallest Stitched Rectangle Dies, with the sentiment on the very bottom. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Seal.

I cut a panel of Basic White cardstock using the 3rd from the smallest Stitched Rectangle Die. I stamped the lighthouse image from the Sailing Home stamp set in Night of Navy Ink, stamping off once, on the bottom of the panel. Using my Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Markers, I added a little color around the lighthouse image. I added a little color for the sand on the bottom of the image using my Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the panel to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I stamped the anchor image from the Sailing Home stamp set on a panel of Basic White cardstock in Gray Granite Ink and cut the image out using my Smooth Sailing Dies. I cut the helm die from the Smooth Sailing Dies, from a scrap of In Good Taste DSP and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a silver Metallic Pearl to the center of the helm. I threaded a piece of Gray Granite Bakers Twine, from the Bakers Twine Essential Pack, through the top of the anchor and wrapped it around the card front and tied a knot in the back. I adhered the card front to a Night of Navy card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Through It Together Cling Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the compass image from the Sailing Home stamp set in Gray Granite Ink, stamping off once, on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the anchor image from the Sailing Home stamp set in Gray Granite Ink on top of the compass image. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Gray Granite mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Night of Navy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the lighthouse image from the Sailing Home stamp set in Night of Navy Ink, stamping off once. I stamped the compass image from the Sailing Home stamp set in Gray Granite Ink, stamping off once on the envelope front and the anchor image in Gray Granite Ink on top of the compass. I adhered a panel of In Good Taste DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you like my card and will give it a try. Hope you all enjoy your 4th of July festivities and if you have off tomorrow, enjoy your day off. Happy Stamping!!

I stamped the tree top image from the Beauty Of Friendship stamp set in Old Olive Ink on top of the branches. I stamped the ground image in Soft Suede Ink, stamping off once, on either side of the bottom of the tree trunk. I adhered the panel to the card front overlapping the Soft Suede panel, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I wrapped a piece of Linen Thread around the card front twice and tied a knot.

Stampin’ Up! Seascape Thank You

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. We’re halfway through the week and on the downhill to the weekend. Is anyone starting to make plans?

It’s time for another inspiration challenge for The Card Concept.  The inspiration photo is Long Summer Days. Here is my card that was inspired from the challenge photo.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Bundle for my Clean and Layered card. The first thing that caught my eye when I looked at this photo was the blue seahorses then the wooden tray and other beach themed items.

I hope you will take a moment to visit The Card Concept and join us for our challenge #158. This will be our last challenge before our summer break and we will be keeping the link open until Monday, August 23rd, so be sure to stop by and play along. How are you inspired by this photo.

I started by adhering a panel of In Good Taste Designer Series Paper to a Gray Granite mat using Stampin’ Seal. I cut a panel of Basic White cardstock using my Nature’s Thoughts Dies and using my Blending Brush, I brushed Balmy Blue Ink on it.

I cut a seahorse from a panel of Ombre Specialty Paper using my Sea Life Dies. Using the same dies, I cut the coral from a panel of Just Jade cardstock. I also cut the fish out of a scrap of Rainbow Glimmer Paper.

On the Basic White panel which I brushed with Balmy Blue Ink, I stamped the sand image from the Stampin’ Up! Seascape Cling Stamp Set in Sahara Sand Ink. I stamped the seaweed image from the Seascape stamp set in Just Jade Ink, stamping off once. I stamped the sentiment from the Seascape stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on the top of the panel. I adhered the panel to the card front using Stampin’ Seal and wrapped a piece of Gray Granite bakers twine from the Bakers Twine Essential Pack around the bottom of the panel. I adhered the coral to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I wrapped the seahorses tail around the coral and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added one of the little fish I had cut from the Rainbow Glimmer Paper to the artwork using a Glue Dot. I added a few of the Clear Epoxies from the Silver & Clear Epoxy Essentials to the artwork.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Seascape stamp set in Night of Navy Ink towards the top of a Basic White panel. I stamped the sand image from the Seascape stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink along the bottom of the panel. I stamped the seaweed image from the Seascape stamp set in Just Jade Ink on either side of the panel. I added the other fish to the inside using a Glue Dot. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Gray Granite mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Gray Granite card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the sand image from the Seascape stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink along the bottom front of the envelope. I stamped the seaweed image from the Seascape stamp set in Just Jade Ink on either side of the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the In Good Taste 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 Forever Fern Wedding

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends. Welcome to the weekend. Hope you have something fun planned for the weekend. Today’s my son’s 26th birthday. I can’t believe he’s 26 already, not sure when he got older, but I haven’t. He gets to celebrate with a broken fibula and a ruptured ankle, not much of a celebration. I have to work today, but to my surprise I have off tomorrow, YAY!!! Unfortunately my husband has to work. My intentions now are to get one of my gardens redone. We’ll see how that goes.

Today’s card is something different than my normal. No color. Years ago when my children were little, I did child care. A friend of mine and I both needed to work part-time so we decided to swap kids a couple days a week. It was an even swap till she had a 3rd child and needed me twice a week. I ended up watching her girls along with a couple others 2-3 times a week. I loved the girls that I watched and loved watching them grow up with mine. I was sad when the last one went off to Kindergarten and I only had them in the summer. Well, her middle child is getting marries and I’m going to make a few different wedding cards till I decide which one I want to give her. So here’s my first card for her.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern Cling Stamp Set for my White on White card.

My design and color is from the Try Stamping On Tuesday Challenge #510.

I started by cutting a panel of Shimmery White cardstock using the Potted Succulents Dies and adhered it to a Thick Basic White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I embossed a panel of Basic White cardstock using the Dotty Hearts Embossing Folder and adhered it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On a small panel of Shimmery White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Forever Fern stamp set in Versamark Ink. I immediately sprinkled it with my Silver Embossing Folder and set it using my Heat Tool.

I adhered a piece of 1/2″ White Faux Lined Ribbon from the Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Pack to the back of the sentiment panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Forever Fern stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I cut 3 flowers from a panel of Shimmery White cardstock using the Potted Succulent Dies and adhered them on either side of the sentiment using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Shimmery White mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Thick Basic White card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of In Good Taste Designer Series Paper 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!!

Changes To The Upcoming July-December Mini Catalog And Second Sale-a-bration


Stampin’ Up! has shared the following update with us related to the upcoming July-December Mini Catalog and second Sale-a-bration this year.  With the global shipping delays, they will be moving the start dates for those two publications back by one month.  Here are the details from Stampin’ Up!:

We’ve recently been made aware that, due to the current global shipping crisis tied to the COVID pandemic, we are not likely to receive the majority of product inventory for the upcoming July–December 2021 Mini Catalog or July–August 2021 Sale-A-Bration in time for the catalog launches. After careful consideration we have decided to push the launches of both publications back by one month to allow time for inventory to be received.
 
Change Details

  • The July–December 2021 Mini Catalog will in effect become the August–December 2021 Mini Catalog (though the title of the publication will not change).
    • Demonstrator Preorder: July 1, 2021 – August 2, 2021
    • Customer Sales Period: August 3, 2021– January 3, 2022
  • July–August 2021 Sale-A-Bration will in effect become August–September 2021 Sale-A-Bration.
    • Demonstrator Pre-earn: July 1, 2021 – August 2, 2021
    • Customer Earning Period: August 3, 2021 – September 30, 2021

I’m so happy that Stampin’ Up! made the decision to move the catalog timing back by a month in order to minimize those frustrating backorders and unavailable items!  Let me know if you have questions about this.  Can’t wait to see the upcoming Mini and Sale-a-bration Catalogs this summer!  And as always, I’ll get those catalogs mailed out to you just as quickly as I can once I get them in early July!

Stampin’ Up! Tasteful Touches CAS

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. We’re halfway through the week and heading towards the weekend.

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

I used the Stampin’ Up! Tasteful Touches Cling Stamp Set . I was inspired by the colors in the photo along with the gingham bow (even though mine isn’t black) for my clean and layered card today.

I hope you will take a moment to visit The Card Concept and join us this week to play along with our challenge #153. How are you inspired by this photo?

I started by adhering a panel of In Good Taste Designer Series Paper to a Gray Granite card base using Stampin’ Seal.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the pitcher image from the Stampin’ Up! Country Home Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. If this is a set that you like, it will be retiring as of May 3rd. I colored the image in using my Gray Granite Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the leafy image from the Tasteful Touches stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink above the pitcher and colored the leaves in using my Highland Heather Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I cut the image out using my Scalloped Contours Dies. These are my absolute new favorite dies in case you can’t tell. I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I tied a small bow using the gingham ribbon from the Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack and adhered it to the pitcher using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Tasteful Touches stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the leafy image from the Tasteful Touches stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink on the corners of the panel and colored the leaves in using my Highland Heather Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Soft Succulent mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Gray Granite card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the leafy image from the Tasteful Touches stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink on the envelope front and colored the leaves in using my Highland Heather Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of In Good Taste 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! Butterfly Brilliance Birthday

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers. How has everyone’s week started off? Hope you are all having a productive one.

Today’s card is another card we made at our team meeting on Sunday. This one was designed by our amazing team leader Amy Koenders, I just love her designs. Here is today’s card.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Brilliance Bundle along with the Stampin’ Up! Welcoming Window Photopolymer Stamp Set.

I started by adhering a Butterfly Bijou Designer Series Paper card front to a Basic Black mat using Stampin’ Seal. On a panel of In Good Taste Designer Series Paper I stamped the butterfly images from the Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Brilliance Cling Stamp in Sahara Sand Ink. I adhered the stamped DSP panel to a Basic Black mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the matted panel to the card front using Stampin’ Seal.

I stamped the largest butterfly image from the Butterfly Brilliance stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I cut the image out using my Brilliant Wings Dies. I colored the image in using my Mango Melody and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the butterfly to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Welcoming Window stamp set in Bermuda Bay Ink and cut it out using the Tasteful Labels Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I added a few Blue Adhesive Backed Gems to the card front. I adhered the card front to a Bermuda Bay card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Gala Photopolymer Stamp Set in Bermuda Bay Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I adhered another one of the butterflies from the Butterfly Brilliance stamp that I had cut and colored using my Bermuda Bay and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Basic Black mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Bermuda Bay card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped one of the butterfly images from the Butterfly Brilliance stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the Butterfly Bijou 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!!
