Stampin’ Up! Harvest Meadow 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 Sketch Challenge. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects. Here is my card using this weeks Sketch.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Harvest Bundle along with the Harvest Meadow Designer Series Paper for my card today.

Here’s our sketch for this week.

I started by adhering a panel of Harvest Meadow DSP to a Cinnamon Cider mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered card front to a Misty Moonlight card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the large cone flower image from the Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Harvest Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image in using my Cinnamon Cider, Fresh Freesia and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image out using my Harvest Dies. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Quiet Meadow Cling Stamp Set in Misty Moonlight Ink on the Basic White panel and punched it our using the Tailored Tag Punch. After I punched the sentiment, I stamped the small flower image from the Nature’s Harvest stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink, stamping off 3 times, over the sentiment. I cut the branch die from the Harvest Dies from a panel of Cinnamon Cider cardstock.

I adhered a panel of the Cork Specialty Paper to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the branch die to the Cork using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the cone flower and sentiment over the branch using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few 2020-2022 In-Color Square Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! In Your Words Host Cling Stamp Set in Misty Moonlight Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the small floral image from the Nature’s Harvest stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink, stamping off once, on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Cinnamon Cider mat using Stampn’ Seal and then to the inside of the Misty Moonlight card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the cone flower image from the Nature’s Harvest stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I colored the image the same as I did for my card. I adhered a panel of Harvest Meadow DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for visiting my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Now that you’ve seen my card, take a minute to hop through all our projects today.

Stampin’ Up! In Your Words Gift Card Holder

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends. I hope we all can take a moment of silence today to remember those that lost their lives and lost loved ones 20 years ago. I can remember exactly where I was and what I was doing before I was glued to the television watching what was happening to us. It’s truly something that will never be forgotten. For me it was less than an hour away from my home and I can admit about how really scared I was. I hope you have some fun plans for the weekend. It’s suppose to be a gorgeous one here in NJ. I’ll be working today, but I have tomorrow off, YAY!!

Today I have a gift card holder for you using some of the adorable Sale-a-bration Designer Series Paper and stamp set. Here’s my card for today.

I used 2 Sale-a-bration items for my card today. I used the Stampin’ Up! In Your Words Sale-a-bration Host Cling Stamp Set and the Penguin Playmates Designer Series Paper. The Designer Series Paper you can earn FREE with a qualifying order of $50. The stamp set you can earn FREE with either a qualifying order of $300 or if you have a workshop of $300 or more. If you are interested in getting some friends together to order, I’d be more than happy to set up a Host Code so that you can earn the stamp set along with other Stampin’ Rewards products. Just drop me a note at creativestampingdesigns@gmail.com and I’d be happy to talk to you about it.

I started by scoring and folding a 12″ X 5 1/4″ panel of the Penguin Playmates DSP at 4″ and 8″. On the first score line at 4″ I cut from the top of the score line to the bottom left outside corner creating the triangle. I added a very thin line of Multipurpose Liquid Glue along the bottom edge of the triangle and adhered it to the center.

I adhered the folded DSP to a Misty Moonlight panel using Multipurpose Liquid Gluemaking sure the triangle panel is in the front.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the In Your Words stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink. I cut the sentiment out using my Stitched Rectangle Dies. I adhered the sentiment to a Misty Moonlight mat using Stampin’ Seal.

I adhered a length of the Misty Moonlight & Silver Bakers Twine from the Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack to the card front using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered sentiment over the twine using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Opal Rounds to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the In Your Words stamp set to a panel of Basic White cardstock in Misty Moonlight Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Misty Moonlight mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of the Penguin Playmates 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 Gift Card Holder and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Delicate Dahlias Birthday Triple Time Card

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends. Welcome to the weekend, I hope you have something fun planned.

I have my alternative version of the Triple Time Card for you today that I made on Wednesday. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Sale-a-bration Delicate Dahlias Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Stampin’ Up! Sale-a-bration Host In Your Words Cling Stamp Set for my card today.

I started by taking 3 panels of Basic White cardstock and lightly adhering them together with the tiniest amount of Stampin’ Seal just to hold them in place while stamping. I stamped the sentiment from the In Your Words SAB Host stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on the smallest Basic White panel. I then randomly stamped the 3 images from the Delicate Dahlias stamp set in Bumblebee, Calypso Coral and Just Jade Ink on the layered panels. I embossed all 3 panels using my Painted Textures 3D Embossing Folder.

I gently took the panels apart and adhered the smallest and middle Basic White panels to Just Jade mats using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the smallest layered panel to the middle panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue being sure to match up the flower and leaf images.

I adhered the layered panel to the large Basic White Stamped panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, making sure to match up the flowers and leaf images. I colored a length of the new White 3/8″ Glittered Organdy Ribbon using my Night of Navy Stampin’ Blends Markers. I wrapped the ribbon around the layered card front and tied a bow. I adhered the layered card front to a Just Jade card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Night of Navy Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the In Your Words SAB Host stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the large dahlia image from the Delicate Dahlias SAB stamp set in Bumblebee Ink, stamped off once, over the sentiment. I stamped the leaf image from the Delicate Dahlias SAB stamp set in Just Jade Ink, stamped off twice, by the dahlia image. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Bumblebee mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Just Jade card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the large dahlia image from the Delicate Dahlias SAB stamp set in Bumblebee Ink on the envelope flap. I stamped the leaf image from the Delicate Dahlias SAB stamp set in Just Jade Ink on the envelope front and the envelope flap. I stamped the small flower image from the Delicate Dahlias stamp set in Calypso Coral Ink on the envelope front.

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

Stampin’ Up! Delicate Dahlias Birthday

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. We’re halfway through the week and on our way to the weekend. We’re back to being really hot here again after our 3 days straight of rain.

I have a Triple Time Card for you today. I love doing this design and don’t do it often enough. I’ve made my card using only Stamps, Ink and Paper. Even though it’s an easy card there are lots of layers. I’ve made a similar card stepped up a bit, Watch for my stepped up version of this card on Saturday. See what extras I added. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Sale-a-bration Delicate Dahlias Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Stampin’ Up! Sale-a-bration Host In Your Words Cling Stamp Set for my card today.

My colors are from the Inspire. Create Challenge #097.

I started by taking 3 panels of Basic White cardstock and lightly adhering them together with the tiniest amount of Stampin’ Seal just to hold them in place while stamping. I stamped the sentiment from the In Your Words SAB Host stamp set in Night of Navy Ink in the center of the smallest Basic White panel. I then randomly stamped the 3 images from the Delicate Dahlias stamp set in Bumblebee, Calypso Coral and Just Jade Ink on the layered panels.

I gently took the panels apart and adhered the smallest and middle Basic White panels to Night of Navy mats using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the smallest layered panel to the middle panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue being sure to match up the flower and leaf images.

I adhered the layered panel to the large Basic White Stamped panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, making sure to match up the flowers and leaf images. I adhered the layered panel to a Night of Navy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the In Your Words SAB Host stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the large dahlia image from the Delicate Dahlias SAB stamp set in Bumblebee Ink on the side of the panel. I stamped the leaf image from the Delicate Dahlias SAB stamp set in Just Jade Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Night of Navy 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 large dahlia image from the Delicate Dahlias SAB stamp set in Bumblebee Ink on the envelope front. I stamped the leaf image from the Delicate Dahlias SAB stamp set in Just Jade Ink on the envelope front and the envelope flap. I stamped the small flower image from the Delicate Dahlias stamp set in Calypso Coral Ink on the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. The items I used today are from the August-September Sale-a-bration Catalog. These items can be earned FREE with a qualifying order of $100 for the Delicate Dahlias stamp set and a $300 host order for the In Your Words stamp set.

Stampin’ Up! Joyful Life CAS

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends. Hope your weekend is starting out fun. We’re suppose to have a wet one here. I’ll be at work all day today, but I actually have off tomorrow, YAY!! I was not expecting that, but I’ll take it.

I have a clean and simple card for you today. I thought I’d do one last summer card before I go full swing into fall and holiday cards. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Joyful Life Cling Stamp Set along with You’re A Peach Designer Series Paper for my card today.

My colors are from Global Design Project Challenge #305.

I played along with TGIF Challenge #330.

I started by adding Balmy Blue Ink using my Blending Brush, to the front of a Thick Basic White card base.

I cut a panel of You’re A Peach DSP using my Paper Snips and adhered it to the front of the Thick Basic White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I stamped the sentiment from the Joyful Life stamp set on the top of the card front in Tuxedo Black Ink.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the bear image from the Joyful Life stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image in using my Balmy Blue, Crumb Cake and Pale Papaya Stampin’ Blends Markers. I fussy cut the image using my Paper Snips and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few 2021-2023 In-Colors Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! In Your Words SAB Host Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I adhered a strip of You’re A Peach DSP to the bottom of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Pear Pizzazz mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Thick Basic White card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the bear image from the Joyful Life stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and colored it in the same as the card. I adhered a panel of You’re A Peach 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! In Your Words for The Happy Inkin’ Thursdy 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 Sketch Challenge. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects. Here is my card using this weeks Sketch.

I used the Stampin’ Up! In Your Words Cling Stamp Set along with the Blackberry Beauty Designer Series Paper and Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Tomorrow Cling Stamp Set for my card today.

This is our sketch for this week.

I started by adhering a panel of Blackberry Beauty DSP to a Rich Razzleberry mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered a smaller panel of Blackberry Beauty DSP to a Rich Razzleberry mat using Stampin’ Seal and adhered it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue

On a small panel of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the In Your Words SAB Host stamp set in Versamark Ink. I immediately sprinkled it with Gold Embossing Powder and set is using my Heat Tool. I cut the sentiment out with the Ornate Frames Dies. I cut the detailed frame from a panel of Rich Razzleberry cardstock using my Ornate Frames Dies and adhered the sentiment to the center using Stampin’ Seal.

I adhered a length of 3/8″ Gold Shimmer Ribbon to the card front with Stampin’ Seal and adhered the framed sentiment over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the card front to a Cinnamon Cider card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Beauty of Tomorrow stamp set in Rich Razzleberry Ink on a Very Vanilla panel. I stamped the floral image from the Beauty of Tomorrow stamp set in Rich Razzleberry Ink on the bottom of the panel. I adhered a strip of the Blackberry Beauty DSP to the side of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Rich Razzleberry mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Cinnamon Cider card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Very Vanilla Medium Envelope. I stamped the floral image from the Beauty of Tomorrow stamp set multiple times on the envelope front in Rich Razzleberry Ink without reinking. I adhered a panel of the Blackberry Beauty DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Counting Sheep Sliding Gate Fold for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday the 13th morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. Is anyone superstitious out there? I’m not. My daughter and I along with my nephew, niece and her 2 boys, spent all day yesterday on the beach. I took the day off from my daily life and went and sat, walked swam and jumped waves for 8 hours yesterday. It was AMAZING. We had such a beautiful HOT day, but on the beach you don’t even feel the heat, especially when your in the water as much as we were. The sunburn today is telling me a little different. How was everyone’s week? Does anyone have any plans for the weekend yet? I’ll be working all day Saturday and attending my virtual team meeting on Sunday. We have a lot of fun even at our virtual meetings.

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 were able to watch me, you were able to see what not to do when making this card. Luckily I was able to fix it without having to redo too 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 for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Counting Sheep Cling Stamp Set along with the Sheep Dies for my card today. I also used the Stampin’ Up! In Your Words Cling Stamp Set for the sentiments. All 3 of these items are from the August-September Sale-a-bration Catalog and are free with qualifying orders.

I started by adhering 2 panels of Pattern Party Host Designer Series Paper to Basic White mats using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered the 2 layered panels to the front of a Bermuda Bay card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

For the sliding mechanism I started by cutting a Bermuda Bay panel with the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. I adhered a small panel of the Basic White cardstock to the back of the scalloped rectangle using Stampin’ Seal. I scored 2 of the Basic White panels and folded them in half. I adhered the 2 folded panels folded edge in on the back of the scalloped rectangle. I adhered another one of the small Basic White panels on top of the folded panels using Stampn’ Seal. On the last small Basic White panel I stamped the grass image from the Counting Sheep stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the sentiment from the In Your Words stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the top of the panel. I cut a panel of In Good Taste Designer Series Paper using the fence die from the Sheep Dies and adhered it to the Basic White panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sheep image from the Counting Sheep stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image in using my Petal Pink and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers. I removed some of the ink using my Color Lifter to lighten the color. I cut the sheep out using my Sheep Dies and embossed the sheep using my Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder. I stamped the party hat image from the Counting Sheep stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink and cut the image out using my Sheep Die. I colored the hat in using my Bermuda Bay, Granny Apple Green, Poppy Parade and Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the hat to the sheep using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the sheep to the Basic White panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I cut the balloon from a scrap of Pumpkin Pie cardstock and adhered it to the sheep. I adhered the artwork to the scalloped rectangle using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I added a few Artistry Bloom Adhesive-Backed Sequins to the artwork

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the In Your Words stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the sheep image from the Counting Sheep stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink and colored the image in using my Petal Pink and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the grass image below the sheep in Granny Apple Green Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Pumpkin Pie 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 the sheep image from the Counting Sheep stamp set on the envelope front and colored it in using my Petal Pink and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the grass image from the Counting Sheep stamp set below the sheep in Granny Apple Green Ink. I adhered a panel of Pattern Party Hose 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 the 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!!
