Stampin’ Up! Cottage Rose Sympathy

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends. I hope everyone’s week has started off good. I finally have a day off today and I have a few errands to run. I have to take Coraline for the last of her puppy shots and she’ll finally be allowed to play with other puppies if she wishes.

I have a clean and simple card today for you using sets from the Annual Catalog. The one set is going to be used on Saturday for World Card Making Day for the Stampin’ Up! event, details, below. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Cottage Rose Sympathy 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Cottage Rose Cling Stamp Set, Stampin’ Up! Go To Greetings Cling Stamp Set, Stampin’ Up! Inspired Thoughts Cling Stamp Set and the Abigail Rose Designer Series Paper for my CAS card today.

My sketch today is from Sunday Stamps Challenge #292.

I started by adhering a panel of Abigail Rose DSP to a Basic White Thick card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Cottage Rose Sympathy 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the large rose image from the Cottage Rose stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink. I adhered the stamped panel to a Smoky Slate mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Go To Greetings stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink. I adhered the sentiment to a Smoky Slate mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Inspired Thoughts stamp set in Smoky slate Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the leaf image from the Cottage Rose stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink on either side of the sentiments. I adhered a strip of Abigail Rose DSP to the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Smoky Slate mat then to the inside of the Basic White Thick card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the large rose image from the Cottage Rose stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of Abigail Rose DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Kindest Gnomes Thank You

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend? It was a gorgeous one here in NJ, a perfect sunny and not too hot weekend. I was able to enjoy a bit of my Sunday since I only had to work half day.

Today’s card is similar to one that I made at our mystery stamping last Tuesday. I made another one with the same idea using a different stamp set, DSP and dies. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Kindest Gnomes Thank You 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Kindest Gnomes Bundle along with the Storybook Gnomes Designer Series Paper, Design A Daydream Host Designer Series Paper and the Basic Borders Dies for my card today.

Stampin' Up! Kindest Gnomes Thank You 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by cutting the front of a Pool Party card base using the Basic Borders Dies. I cut a panel of Pool Party cardstock the same way with the Basic Borders Dies. I embossed the panel using the Into The Clouds Embossing Folder. I adhered the embossed panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Kindest Gnomes Thank You 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the gnome image from the Stampin’ Up! Kindest Gnomes Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I cut the image our using my Gnomes Dies. I colored the image using my Calypso Coral, Crumb Cake, Highland Heather, Ivory, Petal Pink and Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the gnome to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment from the Kindest Gnomes stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I adhered the sentiment to the top of the panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Fine Sparkle Adhesive-Backed Gems to the card front.

Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern Sympathy

Good Monday morning my stamping friends and welcome to August. I can’t believe I’m saying that. This means that this is the last month of Sale-a-bration and things are selling out. How was everyone’s weekend? I hope you were able to do something fun.

Today’s card is one of those cards you don’t want to make, but sometimes you just have to. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! forever Fern Sympathy 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern Cling Stamp Set along with the Stampin’ Up! Go To Greetings Cling Stamp Set and the Stampin’ Up! Inspired Thoughts Cling Stamp Set for my card today.

My colors are from the Color Throwdown Challenge #703.

My design is from Freshly Made Sketches #546 – A Sketch by Amy.

Stampin' Up! forever Fern Sympathy 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by using a Post-It note that I cut a circle using the Layered Circles Dies and adhered it to a Very Vanilla card front. Using my Blending Brush, I added Crumb Cake Ink inside the circle. Before removing the mask, I stamped the leaf image from the Forever Fern stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink.

Stampin' Up! forever Fern Sympathy 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

Using another Post-It note and a smaller die from the Layering Circles Dies, I adhered it on the bottom and added Balmy Blue Ink using my Blending Brush. I moved the Post-It note to the top and added Balmy Blue Ink again using my Blending Brush.

Stampin' Up! forever Fern Sympathy 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

I stamped the sentiment from the Go To Greetings stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink on the top of the panel. I added a small bow with a Glue Dot using Crumb Cake Baker’s Twine from the Baker’s Twine Essential Pack. I adhered the card front to a Very Vanilla Thick card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! forever Fern Sympathy 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside, I stamped the sentiments from the Inspired Thoughts stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink on a Very Vanilla panel. I stamped the leaf image from the Forever Fern stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink on both sides of the panel. I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Crumb Cake mat and then to the inside of the Very Vanilla Thick card base.

Stampin' Up! forever Fern Sympathy 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To finish my card, I decorated a Very Vanilla Medium Envelope. I stamped the leaf image from the Forever Fern stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink on the envelope front and flap.

Stampin’ Up! Splendid Thoughts Thank You Sneak Peek

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend.

Today’s card is part 2 of yesterday’s card. This one is also out of my comfort zone, but I had fun making it and was happy how it turned out. This was another one we made last Saturday at our Creativity Now Event and I tweaked it a little from the way they made it. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Splendid Thoughts Bundle along with the Splendid Day Specialty Designer Series Paper, the Stampin’ Up! Go To Greetings Cling Stamp Set and the Stampin’ Up! Inspired Thoughts Cling Stamp Set for my card today.

I started by embossing a Basic White card front using the Painted Posies 3D Embossing Folder. I lightly brushed Soft Sea Foam Ink over the embossed panel using my Blending Brush. I adhered the card front to a Basic White Thick card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Soft Sea Foam cardstock, I blended some Soft Sea Foam Ink to the bottom corner of the panel using my Blending Brush. I stamped the solid eucalyptus leaf image from the Stampin’ Up! Splendid Thoughts Cling Stamp Set in VersaMark Ink. I sprinkled it with my White Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I adhered the panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I took the 4 negative die cut panels from yesterday’s card and adhered them to the Soft Sea Foam panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. Using my Splendid Stems Dies, I cut 3 pieces of Splendid Day DSP using the leaf die. I adhered the 3 die cut leaves inside 3 of the negative half-moon dies using Glue Dots.

On a panel of Calypso Coral cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Go To Greetings stamp set in Versamark Ink. I sprinkled it with my White Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I cut the sentiment using my Stylish Shapes Dies and adhered it to the 4th negative half-moon die using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Fine Sparkle Adhesive-Backed Gems to the card front.

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Inspired Thoughts stamp set in Calypso Coral Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the solid eucalyptus leaf image from the Splendid Thoughts stamp set around the panel in Soft Sea Foam Ink. I adhered the Basic Whtie panel to a Soft Sea Foam mat and then to the inside of the Basic White Thick card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the eucalyptus leaf image from the Splendid Thoughts stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink around the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the Splendid Day DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked the card and will give it a try. Some of the products that were used in today’s card will be available on Friday July 1st. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Oceanfront Sympathy

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. Happy June!! Here we go starting another month and I feel like I’ve missed most of May. We’re halfway through the week and on our way to the weekend. It’s supposed to cool off a little here over the next few days. When I got in my car yesterday to fun some errands, the temp said it was 101. That was with my card in the shade. I believe today is only supposed to hit 75 out.

Today’s card is one of those cards you don’t really like to make, but at times have to. Someone very dear and close to me passed over the weekend. I have so many wonderful memories from my childhood. My uncle was a wonderful man, caring and generous. Our families used to go on vacation together every summer for 2-3weeks. We’d laugh till our sides hurt. He will be missed but will always be in my heart. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Oceanfront Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Harvest Cling Stamp Set for my card today.

I started by stamping the wheat grass and sand images from the Oceanfront stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink on a Sahara Sand card front. I embossed the card front using the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to a Sahara Sand card base.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, using the Oceanfront stamp set, I stamped the top of the panel with Balmy Blue Ink. I stamped the center image with Coastal Cabana Ink and the bottom image in Sahara Sand Ink. I stamped the sand image from the Oceanfront stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink. I stamped the wheat grass image from the Oceanfront stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink and the small grass image in Garden Green Ink. I stamped the bird image from the Stampin’ Up! Let’s Set Sail Photopolymer Stamp Set on the top of the panel in Smoky Slate Ink. I cut the panel using the 3rd largest Stitched Rectangle Die. I adhered the stamped panel to a Balmy Blue mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Nature’s Harvest Stamp Set in Sahara Sand Ink. Using my Banner Pick A Punch I cut the end of the strip. I adhered the sentiment to the bottom of the panel using Stampin’ Seal and Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Faux Sea Glass Shapes along the water edge.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Inspired Thoughts Cling Stamp Set in Sahara Sand Ink. I stamped the sand image from the Oceanfront stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink along the bottom of the panel. I stamped the wheat grass image from the Oceanfront stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink. I stamped the bird image from the Let’s Set Sail stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink on the top of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Balmy Blue mat and then to the inside of the Sahara Sand card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the sand image from the Oceanfront stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink on the envelope front. I stamped the wheat grass image from the Oceanfront stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink on the bottom of the envelope front. I adhered a panel of Neutrals 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper 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! Cottage Rose Birthday

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone’s weekend going? It’s been warm, humid and stormy here so far.

Today’s card is another version of yesterdays. I was playing around with colors for my rose, and I couldn’t decide which one I liked better, so I made 2 different cards that are similar in color. I personally think I like the Highland Heather a little better. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Cottage Rose Bundle along with the Stampin’ Up! Inspired Thoughts Cling Stamp Set, Flowering Fields Designer Series Paper and the Heart & Home Designer Series Paper for my card today.

This was the inspiration for my colors yesterday and today. This is one of my gardens in the front of my house.

I started by adhering a panel of Flowering Fields DSP to a Highland Heather card base. I adhered a panel of Heart & Home DSP to the center of the card front.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the large rose image from the Stampin’ Up! Cottage Rose Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image using my Highland Heather and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image out using my Cottage Flowers Dies. I adhered a piece of Soft Succulent 1/2″ Satin Shimmer Ribbon to the card front with a small amount of Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the rose over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Cottage Rose stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I cut the sentiment out using my Sending Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Elegant Faceted Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Inspired Thoughts stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the leaf image from the Cottage Rose stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on either side of the panel. I colored the leaves in using my Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Soft Succulent mat and then to the inside of the Highland Heather card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the rose image from the Cottage Rose stamp set in Tuxedo Black on the envelope front. I colored the image using my Highland Heather and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of Flowering Fields 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! Fresh Cut Flowers Sneak Peek for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop

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

I used the new Stampin’ Up! Fresh Cut Flowers Cling Stamp Set along with the new Fabulous Frames Dies from the upcoming 2022-2023 Annual Catalog for my card today.

I started by adhering a panel of Mint Macaron Subtle 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Mint Macaron card base. I stamped the large floral image from the Fresh Cut Flowers stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I colored the image in using my Mint Macaron and Pale Papaya Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I cut the image out using the largest frame from the Fabulous Frames Dies. This die cuts out the image and cuts a frame at the same time. I adhered the cut floral image to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the frame to the card front, lining it up with the artwork, using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a few Mint Macaron Genial Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Inspired Thoughts Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the floral image from the Fresh Cut Flowers stamp set on the bottom of the panel in Tuxedo Black Ink and colored it using my Mint Macaron and Pale Papaya Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Mint Macaron mat and then to the inside of the Mint Macaron card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic Whtie Medium Envelope. I stamped the floral image from the Fresh Cut Flowers stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and colored it using my Mint Macaron and Pale Papaya Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of the Subtle DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Friendship Thinking of You

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend? Has anyone gone to get their tree yet? My husband went on Saturday and it’s sitting outside until we’re ready to set it up. Unfortunately, my house isn’t fully decorated yet. At the rate I’m going, I’m not sure it’s going to get finished either.

Today’s card is one that we made at our team meeting yesterday. This card was designed by Tara Carpenter. There were 3 of us that presented and all 3 of us designed a fun fold card without knowing what the other was doing. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Friendship Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Beauty of The Earth Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by folded a 5 1/2″ X 6 1/2″ Mossy Meadow card base at 4 1/4″. I scored the 4 3/8″ X 4 1/4″ panel of Mossy Meadow cardstock at 1/4″.

I adhered a panel of the Beauty of The Earth DSP to the card front using Stampin’ Seal. I wrapped a piece of Gold 1/4″ Shimmer Ribbon around the card base and secured it with Tear & Tape on the back.

I adhered a panel of Beauty of The Earth DSP to the small Mossy Meadow panel using Stampin’ Seal. I folded the panel of the score line and adhered it to the inside of the Mossy Meadow card base using Tear & Tape. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the small tree image from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set in Soft Suede Ink. I stamped the tree top image from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink on top of the branches. I stamped the sentiment from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink across the bottom of the tree. I cut the image out using my Stitched So Sweetly Dies. I adhered the die cut to the small panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Gold Metallic Pearls to the artwork.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Inspired Thoughts Cling Stamp Set in Mossy Meadow Ink to the left of a Basic White panel. I adhered a panel of Beauty of The Earth DSP to the right side of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the Basic Whtie panel to the inside of the Mossy Meadow card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the tree image from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set on the envelope front the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of Beauty of The Earth DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card designed by Tara. This was a very easy fun fold that went together really quick, and you can do a lot with it. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Friendship Fun Fold Sympathy

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends. Welcome to the weekend. Sorry I missed yesterday, but I took a bit of a turn for the worst with whatever this is that I have. It started as pneumonia, then I got a sinus infection on top of that. The whole thing is really affecting my asthma so they are trying one more med before hospitalizing me. I’m really hoping this med works. So, since I’m down for the count I won’t be working this weekend. I really prefer to be healthy when I have a weekend off. I’m hoping to still be able to attend our in person team meeting Sunday, but we’ll see how I’m doing. If I can’t go in person, I’ll still be able to attend via zoom.

With that being said, I missed my Fun Fold Friday, so I thought I’d bring it to you today. This is actually the card I designed for our team meeting. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Friendship Bundle along with the Stampin’ Up! Inspired Thoughts Cling Stamp Set and the Beauty of The Earth Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by adhering a panel of Beauty of The Earth DSP to the small Misty Moonlight card base using Stampin’ Seal. From a panel of Basic White cardstock I cut the tree from the Beautiful Trees Dies and adhered it to the small card front using small amounts of Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I cut the 2 birds from a panel of Cherry Cobbler cardstock using my Beautiful Trees Dies and adhered them to the tree using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I cut the sentiment out using the Beautiful Trees Dies and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Inspired Thoughts stamp set in Night of Navy Ink. I stamped the tree image from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to the inside of the small Misty Moonlight card base.

I adhered a panel of Beauty of The Earth DSP to the front of the Night of Navy card base using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the small card front to the larger card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Inspired Thoughts stamp set in Night of Navy Ink. I stamped the tree image from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Misty Moonlight mat and then to the inside of the Night of Navy card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the tree image from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the Beauty of The Earth DSP to the envelope flap.

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

Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Tomorrow Inspired Thoughts for Fun Fold Friday Video Tutorial

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’ll be at work all weekend.

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! Beauty of Tomorrow Bundle, the Stampin’ Up! Inspired Thoughts Cling Stamp Set along with the Blackberry Beauty Specialty Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I joined in with Creative Creases #18

I started by adhering a Blackberry Beauty DSP card front to a Cinnamon Cider mat and then to the front of a Rich Razzleberry card front.

I stamped the sentiment from the Inspired Thoughts stamp set in Cinnamon Cider Ink on a panel of Very Vanilla card stock. I cut the sentiment out using my Tasteful Labels Dies.

I adhered a length of the Gold 3/8″ Shimmer Ribbon to the card front then adhered the sentiment over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I adhered 2 panels of the Blackberry Beauty DSP to Early Espresso mats and then to the inside of the Rich Razzleberry card base. I scored & cut a panel of Rich Razzleberry cardstock as follows. First score the panel at 2 1/8″, 4 1/4″ & 6 3/8″. Make a little tick mark on the short edge 1 1/2″ up from the bottom. Cut from the tick mark to the upper left corner on a diagonal. The 2 1/8″ & 6 3/8″ score lines are valley folds and the 4 1/4″ score line is a mountain fold. I cut a panel of Early Espresso cardstock by making a tick mark on the short edge 1 1/4″ up from the bottom. Cut from the tick mark to the upper left corner on a diagonal. Cut the panel in 2″ intervals. I cut a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock by making a tick mark 1 1/8″ up from the bottom of the short edge. I cut from the tick mark to the upper left corner on a diagonal. Cut the panel in 1 7/8″ intervals. Emboss the 2 center Very Vanilla panels using the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder. Adhere the Very Vanilla panels to the Early Espresso mats. Adhered the layered panels to the Rich Razzleberry panel

Adhered the layered panel to the inside of the card base using Tear & Tape on the ends. Once it’s adhered it will look like the above picture.

On a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock stamp the larger floral image from the Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Tomorrow Cling Stamp Set in Rich Razzleberry Ink, stamping off once. Stamp the smaller floral image from the Beauty of Tomorrow stamp set in Cinnamon Cider Ink, stamping off once. Stamp the bird image from the Beauty of Tomorrow stamp set in Early Espresso Ink, stamping off once. Cut all the images out using the Beautiful Leaves Dies. Adhered the die cut images to the center embossed panels using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. Stamp the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Friends Are Like Seashells Photopolymer Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink and cut the sentiment out using the Tasteful Labels Dies. Adhered the sentiment to the top of the inner panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

To finish my card I decorated a Very Vanilla Medium Envelope. I stamped the floral image from the Beauty of Tomorrow stamp set in Rich Razzleberry Ink, stamping off once, on the envelope front. I stamped the bird image from the Beauty of Tomorrow stamp set in Early Espresso Ink, stamping off once, on the opposite side of the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the Blackberry Beauty 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.
