Stampin’ Up On The Horizon Fun Fold

Good Friday morning my stamping friends. Welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Does anyone have plans for the weekend? I have off tomorrow but have to work on Sunday.

Today’s card I was going to make on my Facebook Live Wednesday, but I wasn’t feeling well so I never went live. I’m hoping all is better next week. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! On The Horizon Bundle along with the New Horizon 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by scoring and folding my Misty Moonlight card base as listed below. I took a panel of the New Horizons DSP and cut it down to 5 3/8″. I cut 15/16″ off the right and left side of the DSP. I stamped the grass image from the Stampin’ Up! On The Horizon Cling Stamp Set in Garden Green Ink on the 2 small panels. I adhered the 2 panels on the 2 side folds of the card base. I stamped the bird image from the On The Horizon stamp set on the larger piece of DSP in Tuxedo Black Ink then adhered it in the center of the card base.

Using my Horizon Dies, I cut the 2 fence pieces out of a panel of In Good Taste Designer Series Paper. I adhered the 2 fences on each of the side panels using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I cut 2 of the grass dies from a panel of Soft Succulent cardstock and adhered them in front of the fence pieces.

On a panel of In Good Taste DSP I stamped the sentiment from the On The Horizon stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink and fussy cut it using my Paper Snips. I adhered the sentiment to the side panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On the panel I cut off the top of the DSP I stamped the bird image from the On The Horizon stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. My husband wanted to do some extreme fussy cutting (as he called it) of the birds, so I cut a couple and so did he. I adhered the cut birds to the side panels with a tiny amount of Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I added a few Pebbles Enamel Shapes to the card front.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the On The Horizon stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink. I stamped the grass image on the bottom of the panel in Garden Green Ink and the birds on the top of the panel in Tuxedo Black Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to the back of the Misty Moonlight card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the envelope front with the grass image from the On The Horizon stamp set in Garden Green Ink and the birds in Tuxedo Black Ink. I adhered a panel of New Horizon 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 the post. I’d love to see your take on the card. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Back On Your Feet CAS

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. We’re halfway through the week and only 3 days till Christmas. I haven’t wrapped a thing, let alone shopped. My husband has done a lot of the shopping for us this year, I’m just not feeling up to it.

I have a quick fun card today using product from the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog. Every once in a while, I like to pull things out I haven’t played with in a bit. Here’s my card today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Back on Your Feet Cling Stamp Set along with the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper for my card today.

My design is from Sunday Stamps Sketch Challenge #272.

My colors are from Inspire. Create. Color Challenge #106.

I started by embossing a Very Vanilla card front using the Timber 3D Embossing Folder and adhering it to a Very Vanilla card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of In Good Taste DSP I stamped the sentiment from the Back on Your Feet stamp set in Versamark Ink on the bottom. I immediately sprinkled it with my white embossing powder from the Embossing Powder Basics and set it using my Heat Tool. I adhered the panel to a Cinnamon Cider mat using Stampin’ Seal. I colored a piece of White Bakers Twine using my Cinnamon Cider Stampin’ Blends Marker. Once it was dry, I wrapped it around the layered panel and tied a small bow. I adhered the panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the sloth image from the Back on Your Feet stamp set in Early Espresso Ink. I colored the image in using my Cinnamon Cider and Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends Markers. I fussy cut the image using my Paper Snips and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and Glue Dots. I added a couple Cinnamon Cider 2020-2022 In-Color Square Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Back on Your Feet stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on a Very Vanilla panel. I stamped the turtle image from the Back on Your Feet stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Cinnamon Cider mat and then to the inside of the Very Vanilla card base.

To finish my card I decorated a Very Vanilla Medium Envelope. I stamped the sloth image from the Back on Your Feet stamp set in Early Espresso Ink and colored it using my Cinnamon Cider and Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends Markers.

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

Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Cabin Seasonal Wreath for The Card Concepts

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. We’re halfway through the week already and on our way to the weekend. I hope you are starting to make some plans.

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

I used the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Cabin ClingStamp Set along with the Stampin’ Up! Sparkle of The Season Bundle for my Clean and Simple card. I was inspired by the gorgeous wreath in the photo.

I hope you will take a moment to visit The Card Concepts and join us for our Challenge #165. How are you inspired by this photo?

I started by stamping the sentiment from the Peaceful Cabin stamp set in Versamark Ink on the bottom of an In Good Taste Designer Series Paper card front. I immediately sprinkled it with my Gold Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I adhered the card front to a Basic White Thick card base.

Using my Seasonal Swirls Dies, I cut 2 of the wreaths out, 1 in Evening Evergreen and 1 in Soft Succulent. On a panel of Crumb Cake cardstock I stamped the small pinecone image from the Stampin’ Up! Sparkle of The Season Photopolymer Stamp Set in Crumb Cake Ink multiple times. I cut the images out using my Seasonal Swirls Dies. I cut 3 sets of holly from a panel of Gold & Rose Gold Metallic Paper and multiple berries from a scrap of Real Red cardstock. I adhered the pinecones, holly and berries to the wreaths using Glue Dots and Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the wreath to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I tied a bow using the Real Red 3/8″ Sheer Ribbon and adhered it to the top of the wreath using a Glue Dot leaving long tails. I twisted the tails of the bow and tacked them in a couple places using Glue Dots. I added a few Wonderful Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Evergreen Elegance Cling Stamp Set in Crumb Cake Ink. I stamped the pine boughs image from the Evergreen Elegance stamp set above and below the sentiment in Evening Evergreen Ink. I adhered the pinecones and holly & berries I had cut to the boughs. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Real Red mat and then to the inside of the Basic White Thick card base.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic Whtie Medium Envelope. I stamped the pine boughs image from the Evergreen Elegance stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink above and below where I’d be writing the address on the envelope front and on 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! Poinsettia Petals for The Card Concepts.

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. We’re halfway through the week already and on our way to the weekend. I hope you are starting to make some plans.

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

I used the Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals Photopolymer Stamp Set for my Mixed Media card. I was inspired by the Poinsettias in the photo along with the colors.

I hope you will take a moment to visit The Card Concepts and join us for our Challenge #164. How are you inspired by this photo?

I started by embossing a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock using the Timber 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered a panel of In Good Taste Designer Series Paper to the panel and then adhered the layered panel to a Thick Very Vanilla card base.

On a panel on Cherry Cobbler cardstock I stamped the poinsettia images from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Versamark Ink. I stamped 1 large, 1 medium and 2 small. I immediately sprinkled them with my Gold Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I cut the images out using my Poinsettia Dies. On a panel of Garden Green cardstock I cut 2 of the largest poinsettias dies and embossing die using my Poinsettia Dies. I adhered the large and medium flowers together using a small amount of Multipurpose Liquid Glue making sure the petals alternated. I adhered the 2 small flowers together using a tiny amount of Multipurpose Liquid Glue making sure the petal alternated. I adhered the layered small flowers to the large layered petals using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered 1 of the large Garden Green flowers to the back of the layered Cherry Cobbler flower using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I cut apart the other Garden Green flower using my Paper Snips and adhered the leaves where I thought they should go using Glue Dots. I adhered the layered flowers to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Pearl Basic Jewels in the center of the flower.

I cut a few of the sprigs dies from the Poinsettia Dies out of a panel of Gold Metallic Paper. I adhered them under the flower. On a strip of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Cinnamon Cider Ink. I tied a small bow using the Gold Simply Elegant Trim and adhered it to the card front using a Glue Dot. I adhered the sentiment over the bow using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Cinnamon Cider Ink on a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock. I had cut 4 of the tiny poinsettias from the Poinsettia Dies from the panel of Cherry Cobbler cardstock. I adhered them together alternating petals using Glue Dots and adhered them on either side of the sentiment using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I added a Pearl Basic Jewel to the center. I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat and then to the inside of the Thick Very Vanilla card base.

To complete my card I decorated a Very Vanilla Medium Envelope. I stamped the poinsettia image from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of In Good Taste DSP to the envelope flap.

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.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Inspired Thoughts Cling Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock.

For this catalog’s Last Chance Products promotion, a Carryover List will not be provided; carryover products can be viewed in the 2021–2022 Annual Catalog.
  • Discounts are not always available with the Retiring List. When they are, they will vary from one market to another depending on product performance.
  • All products are available while supplies last, and there are no purchase limits.
