Stampin’ Up! Birds and Branches Congratulations

Good Monday morning my stamping friends.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Did anyone do anything fun?  I worked on Saturday and yesterday I worked around the house.  I thought about going for a nice long walk, but when I walked outside and couldn’t breath, I changed my mind.

For today I played along with another new bundle from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.  I just got the Birds & Branches Bundle last week and couldn’t wait to play with it.  My cousin’s son just had a baby boy so I thought I’d send her a congrats on being a  grandma card. Here’s my card for today.

My colors were inspired by the Color Throwdown Challenge #599.  Here are their colors.

My design is from Try Stamping On Tuesday Challenge #463.  Here is their sketch.

I also played along with Watercooler Wednesday Challenge #277.  Here is their theme.

I started by stamping the bird nest image from the Stampin’ Up! Birds & Branches Photopolymer Stamp Set in Crumb Cake Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I stamped the 1st step of the bird image from the Birds & Branches stamp set in Daffodil Delight Ink on the Whisper White panel.  I stamped the 2nd step of the bird image from the Birds & Branches stamp set in Gray Granite Ink on top of the first image.  I stamped the birds eggs image from the Birds & Branches stamp set in Balmy Blue on the Whisper White panel.  I cut the images out using the Birds & More Dies.  I cut a panel of Soft Sea Foam cardstock using the circular die from the Birds & More Dies.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the branch image from the Birds & Branches stamp set in Soft Suede Ink.  I stamped the leaf image from the Birds & Branches stamp set in Just Jade Ink, stamping off once, on the branches.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the back of the die cut Soft Sea Foam panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the Soft Sea Foam panel to a panel of In Good Taste Designer Series Paper using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the birds nest to the die cut panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.   I adhered the bird to the nest using a Glue Dot and Stampin’ Dimensional.  I adhered the birds eggs inside the nest using Glue Dots.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Moments Cling Stamp Set in Balmy Blue Ink on a strip of Whisper White cardstock and fussy cut it using my Paper Snips.  I adhered the sentiment to a strip of Soft Sea Foam cardstock using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I wrapped a piece of Linen Thread around the top of the panel and tied a small bow.  I adhered the card front to a Thick Whisper White card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Pearl Basic Jewels that I colored using my Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blends Markers.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Peaceful Moments stamp set in Balmy Blue Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped step 1 of the bird image from the Birds & Branches stamp set in Daffodil Delight Ink on the bottom of the panel.  I stamped step 2 of the bird image from the Birds & Branches stamp set in Gray Granite Ink on top of the 1st.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Soft Sea Foam mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the branch image from the Birds & Branches stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped the leaf image from the Birds & Branches stamp set in Just Jade Ink, stamping off once, on the branch.  I stamped step 1 of the bird image from the Birds & Branches stamp set in Daffodil Delight Ink above the branch.  I stamped step 2 of the bird image from the Birds & Branches stamp set in Gray Granite Ink on top of the 1st image.  I stamped the birds legs in Gray Granite 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! Bloom and Grow Hello

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends.  How is everyone doing today?  It is not supposed to be a nice day here.  Severe thunder storms are expected, we’ll see what happens.

My colors for today’s card were inspired by more flowers around my house in my gardens and flower pots and of course these are not my favorites, but the flowers all look so pretty.  The marigolds, I had seeds from last years plants so I threw them in a pot to see what would happen, they are growing like weeds.  The tiny orange flowers attract butterflies and I have them in 3 different gardens.

Here is my card using these colors.

I started by adhering a panel of In Good Taste Designer Series Paper to a Mango Melody mat using Stampin’ Seal then adhering it to a Poppy Parade card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I embossed a small panel of Daffodil Delight card stock using the Greenery Embossing Folder and adhered it to a Mango Melody mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the floral image from the Stampin’ Up! Bloom & Grow Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I stamped the sentiment from the Bloom & Grow stamp set above the image in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the image in using my Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green, Mango Melody, Poppy Parade and Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the artwork to a Mango Melody mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Pumpkin Pie Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I adhered a strip of the In Good Taste DSP to the edge of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the Bloom & Grow stamp set in the center of the panel in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I stamped 3 of the small floral images from the Bloom & Grow stamp set on the bottom of the panel and colored them in using my Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green, Mango Melody, Poppy Parade and Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Mango Melody mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Poppy Parade card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped 3 of the small floral images from the Bloom & Grow stamp set across the bottom of the envelope front.  I colored the images in using my Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green, Mango Melody, Poppy Parade and Pumpkin Pie 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! Just Saying Hello

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends.  Hope you are all having a wonderful week.    For today’s card my colors were inspired by some of my beautiful Hydrangea’s in one of my gardens.  I have so many beautiful blooms this year and multiple colors on one plant.  I think this is the best year ever with them. When I saw them blooming I immediately thought Balmy Blue and Purple Posy.

Here is my card for today.

My design is from Global Design Project Challenge #246.  Here is their sketch.

I started by stamping a Very Vanilla card front with the flower image from the Stampin’ Up! Tasteful Touches Cling Stamp Set with Balmy Blue Ink.  I stamped 2 of the flowers full strength and 2 stamped off once.  I stamped the feather image from the Tasteful Touches stamp set 3 times colored with my Purple Posy Stampin’ Write Marker.

I stamped the top part of the sentiment from the Tasteful Touches stamp set in Early Espresso Ink.  I stamped the ‘hello’ from the sentiment on a strip of Very Vanilla card stock in Early Espresso Ink.  I adhered the ‘hello’ below the stamped sentiment using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered a strip of In Good Taste Designer Series Paper to the edge of a Thick Very Vanilla card base using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered the card front to the Thick Very Vanilla card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I added a few Pearl Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Tasteful Touches stamp set in Early Espresso Ink in the center of a Very Vanilla panel.  I stamped the feather image from the Tasteful Touches stamp set, colored with my Purple Posy Stampin’ Write Marker, on either side of the sentiment.  I stamped the flower image from the Tasteful Touches stamp set in Balmy Blue Ink on the bottom of the panel.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to the inside of the Thick Very Vanilla card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I stamped the flower image from the Tasteful Touches stamp set in Balmy Blue Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped the feather image from the Tasteful Touches stamp set, colored with my Purple Posy Stampin’ Write Marker, 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! Four Season Floral CAS

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

For today I have a CAS card for you using a set that is  in the 2020-2021 Beginner Brochure. Here’s my card for today.

I started by embossing a panel of Whisper White cardstock using the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered a panel of In Good Taste Designer Series Paper across the middle of the panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the rose image from the Stampin’ Up! Four Seasons Floral Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the image in using my Just Jade and Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the image out using the 4th largest circle from the Layering Circles Dies and adhered it to a scallop mat, which I cut from a panel of Seaside Spray cardstock from the same dies, using Stampin’ Seal.

I wrapped a piece of Seaside Spray 1/4″ Metallic Ribbon around the card front and tied a bow.  I adhered the matted artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the card front to a Thick Whisper White card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Elegant Faceted Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Four Seasons Floral stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the rose image from the Four Seasons Floral stamp set in both corners of the panel in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored them in using my Just Jade and Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Seaside Spray mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the rose image from the Four Seasons Floral stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored it in using my Just Jade and Seaside Spray 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!!

Forever Fern Hello Friendship

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends.  We’re halfway through the week already and more that halfway through the month.  Time is really flying by lately.

I have one more card for you today that we made at our team meeting on Sunday.  This one was designed by our fabulous team leader Amy Koenders.  She designs the most beautiful cards and loves to use woodgrain paper.  Here’s my card for today.

I started by adhering a panel of In Good Taste Designer Series Paper to an Early Espresso mat using Stampin’ Seal.

From the Just Jade panel I used the largest die from the Forever Flourishing Dies.  I cut 2 of the eucalyptus dies from the Forever Flourishing Dies out of the Pretty Peacock panel.  I stamped 2 of the leaf images from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern Cling Stamp Set in Shaded Spruce Ink on a small panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I stamped the medium and small leaf images from the Forever Fern stamp set in Just Jade Ink on the Whisper White panel.  I cut all the images out using the Forever Flourishing Dies.  Amy used the Gold Hoops Embellishments for her card which I didn’t have, so I decided to use the Gold 1/16″ trim from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack.  I adhered a piece of the gold trim on the card front using Glue Dots and then started layering all the greenery the way I wanted on top of it adhering everything down with Glue Dots or Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the Whisper White panel I stamped the sentiment from the Forever Fern stamp set in Cinnamon Cider Ink and cut it out using the smallest rectangle from the Stitched Rectangle Dies.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the card front to an Early Espresso card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals and added a few Gold Glitter Enamel Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Forever Fern stamp set in Cinnamon Cider Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the leaf images from the Forever Fern stamp set around the edges in Just Jade and Shaded Spruce Inks.  I adhered the Whisper 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 finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the leaf images from the Forever Fern stamp set in Just Jade and Shaded Spruce Inks on the front of the envelope. 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 the card we made from our team meeting and will give it a try.  We’d love to have you join us at our meeting.  If you’re interested in joining our team, I’d be happy to talk to you about it, just drop me a line.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! A Good Man and Some Blog Candy

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends.  How is everyone doing today?  We are having one of the most gorgeous weekends here.  It’s been in the 70’s with only around 30% humidity.  I’m talking windows open, ceiling fans on all day and night.  Today is our ‘in person team meeting’, I’m really looking forward to stamping online with everyone.  I just have to go into work for an hour to relieve my cashiers and I have the rest of the day off.

For today’s card my niece asked me to make a Father’s Day card for my little nephews to give their dad, so I pulled out what I thought was the perfect set.  Here’s my card.

My design is from the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #439.  Here is their sketch.

I also played along with Cardz 4 Guyz Challenge #246.  Their Theme is ‘Father’s Day‘.

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

On a Whisper White panel, which I cut using the largest square from the Layering Squares Die, I stamped the father and son image from the Stampin’ Up! A Good Man Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. I colored the image in using my Balmy Blue, Crumb Cake, Ivory, Misty Moonlight and Real Red Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut a panel of Misty Moonlight cardstock with the largest square from the Layering Squares Die and embossed it using the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the Misty Moonlight panel on an angle to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the artwork to the top of the Misty Moonlight panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! By The Dock Cling Stamp Set in Misty Moonlight Ink.  I cut both ends of the strip using the Lovely Labels Pick a  Punch.  I wrapped a piece of Linen Thread around the sentiment 3 times and tied a knot.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few silver Metallic Pearls to the artwork and sentiment .

On the inside I stamped the father/son image from the A Good Man stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, stamping off twice, in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I cut the sentiment out of a panel of Misty Moonlight cardstock using the Word Wishes Dies and adhered it to the center of the panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Misty Moonlight mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Early Espresso card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the father/son image from the A Good Man stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front.  I colored the image in using my Crumb Cake, Ivory, Misty Moonlight and Real Red 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!!  Now onto the Blog Candy

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday.  How was everyone’s week?  Is anyone doing anything fun this weekend?  Normally this is the weekend that we have our quarterly in person team meeting, but under the circumstances we will not be able to meet in person.  Hopefully we will for our next quarterly meeting.  Instead, we will be meeting up together virtually.  It should still be fun.  This was also the weekend I was finally going to be off from work.  Notice I said ‘was’.   Yup, my boss asked me to come in both days to relieve my cashiers so they could take a lunch break, so I’ll be working both days for a couple hours.

So for today’s card I have a super simple fun fold.  I finally got brave and tried making the layered peony.  It’s much easier that it appears when you first look at all the dies. Here’s my card for today.

My design is from Global Design Project Challenge #244.  Their theme is CASE = Copy And Selectively Edit.

I also played along with Watercooler Wednesday Challenge #275.  Here is their theme.

I started by cutting 1 1/2″ off the right side of the card front base.  I adhered a panel of In Good Taste Designer Series Paper to a Balmy Blue mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the front of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Using my Peony Dies for all the following, I cut all the layers of the peony out of a panel of Seaside Spray cardstock.  Using my Sponge Dauber I sponged all the edges of the pieces using Misty Moonlight Ink.  I embossed the pieces using my Subtle 3D Embossing Folder then using my Bone Folder I curled the edges of all the pieces.  I layered the pieces one inside the other and adhered them together using Glue Dots.  I cut the center of the peony from a scrap of So Saffron cardstock and brushed some Clear Wink of Stella over it.  I adhered it to the center of the flower using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.   I cut 3 large leaves from a panel of Just Jade cardstock and 3 leaf edges from a panel of Shaded Spruce cardstock.  I embossed the leaves using my Subtle 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the Shaded Spruce leaf pieces to the full leaves using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and adhered them to the back of the peony using Glue Dots.

I added some of the Misty Moonlight/Silver Bakers Twine, from the Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack, to the card front.  I adhered the peony over the twine using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  On a strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Special Someone Photopolymer Stamp Set in Misty Moonlight Ink.  I made it into a banner and adhered it to the peony using Glue Dots.  I added a few of the clear Elegant Faceted Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Special Someone stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink in the center of the Whisper White panel.  I stamped the medium peony from the Stampin’ Up! Prized Peony Cling Stamp Set on the bottom of the panel in Misty Moonlight Ink and colored it in using my Seaside Spray and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the left side of a Seaside Spray mat using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered a small panel of the Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper to the right side of the Seaside Spray mat using Stampin’ Seal.  I then adhered it to the inside of the Misty Moonlight card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the medium peony from the Prized Peony stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink on the envelope front and colored it in using my Seaside Spray and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers.  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! Inspiring Iris Thanks

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends.  How has everyone’s weekend started off.  I’ll be at work all day today.  It’s suppose to be stormy here, so it might not be as busy as it has been.

Today’s card was inspired by one of my 8 gardens in my yard.  I have an Iris garden and it is now in full bloom.  When I took these pictured there were still a lot of buds.  I look forward every spring for these to bloom.

Here is my card for today.

My sketch is from the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #438.  Here is their sketch.

I started by embossing a Pear Pizzazz card front using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder.

I adhered a panel of the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper to the left side of the panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Using my Light Highland Heather Stampin’ Blends Marker, I colored a piece of the Open Weave Vanilla 1/2″ Ribbon from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack.  I wrapped the piece around the DSP and adhered it to the back of the card front using Glue Dots.  I adhered the card front to a Pear Pizzazz card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the stem image from the Stampin’ Up! Inspiring Iris Photopolymer Stamp Set in Pear Pizzazz Ink.  I stamped the iris image from the Inspiring Iris stamp set in Highland Heather Ink on top of the stems.  I cut the image out using the 4th largest Stitched Nested Labels Dies.  I stamped the sentiment from the Inspiring Iris stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on the top of the panel and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Pearl Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Inspiring Iris stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the stem image from the Inspiring Iris stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on the bottom of the panel.  I stamped the iris image from the Inspiring Iris stamp set in Highland Heather Ink on top of the stem image.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Highland Heather mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Pear Pizzazz card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the stem image from the Inspiring Iris stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped the iris image from the Inspiring Iris stamp set in Highland Heather Ink on top of the stem image.  I adhered a panel of In Good Taste DSP to the envelope flap.

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

Stampin’ Up! Hello Field Flowers

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends.  How is everyone doing today?  We’re already halfway through the week.  I just love these short weeks.

For today, I kind of have a triple time card, but not really if that makes sense.    I used some new items coming in the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog, some retiring colors and some items carrying over.  Here’s my card for today.

My colors were inspired by Fab Friday Color Challenge #190.  Here are their colors.

I started by embossing a Whisper White panel using the Parisian Flourish 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the panel to a Blushing Bride card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered a panel of the gorgeous new In Good Taste Designer Series Paper to a panel of Blushing Bride cardstock using Snail.  This DSP is just so pretty and looks so real.  Every time I pull it out I have to touch it because it looks almost 3D.  I adhered the matted DSP to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the stem image from the Stampin’ Up! Field of Flowers Photopolymer Stamp Set, (available June 3rd), in Call Me Clover Ink (retiring June 2nd).  I stamped the flower image from the Field of Flowers stamp set in Flirty Flamingo Ink on top of the stems.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips Photopolymer Stamp Set in Call Me Clover Ink on the bottom of the panel.  I adhered the artwork to a Blushing Bride mat using Snail.  I adhered the matted artwork to the DSP panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a scrap of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the small butterfly from the Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Gala Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink twice.  I stamped the fill color image from the Butterfly Gala stamp set in Pineapple Punch Ink on top of the outlined butterfly image.  I punched the butterflies out using the Butterfly Duet Punch, bent the wings forward and adhered them to the artwork using Glue Dots.  I added a few Melon Mambo Rhinestones from the Noble Peacock Rhinestones pack to my artwork.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Call Me Clover Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the stem image from the Field of Flowers stamp set in Call Me Clover Ink on the bottom of the panel.  I stamped the flower image from the Field of Flowers stamp set in Flirty Flamingo Ink on top of the stems.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Whisper White mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Blushing Bride card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the stem image from the Field of Flowers stamp set in Call Me Clover Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped the flower image from the Field of Flowers stamp set in Flirty Flamingo Ink on top of the stems.   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 Sneak Peek

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends.  How has everyone’s weekend started off?  I have to work today, but I have all day tomorrow off.

For today’s card I have another sneak peek for you from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.  Speaking of catalogs, I finally got my catalogs yesterday.  If you are a customer of mine, you will be receiving yours shortly.  Here’s my card for today.

My design is from the Tuesday Morning Sketches #554.  Here is their sketch.

I also played along with the Cardz 4 Galz Challenge #121.  Their theme is ‘Birthday’.

I started by adhering a panel of the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper to a Just Jade mat using Snail.  I adhered the matted panel to a Bumble Bee card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Bumble Bee cardstock I stamped the large sunflower image from the Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers Cling Stamp Set in Crushed Curry Ink.  I cut the image out using the Sunflower Dies.  I cut the detailed sunflower die and the sunflower center die out of a panel of Cinnamon Cider cardstock using the Sunflower Dies.  I adhered the detailed die to the stamped image with tiny amounts of Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the center die using Multipurpose Liquid glue.  I stamped the larger leaf image from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink on a panel of Just Jade cardstock.  I cut the images out using the Sunflower Dies.  I cut the detailed leaf die out of a panel of Shaded Spruce cardstock.  I adhered a piece of the gorgeous new Bumble Bee 1/4″ Gingham Ribbon to the card front using a few Glue Dots.  I adhered the sunflower to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added the leaves under the sunflower with a dot of Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Early Espresso Ink.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Just Jade 2020-2022 In-Color Enamel Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the large sunflower image from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Crushed Curry Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel, stamping off once.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! So Sentimental Cling Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink over the sunflower image.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Just Jade mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Bumble Bee card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the large sunflower image from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set on the envelope front in Crushed Curry Ink.  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!!
