Stampin’ Up Over The Moon Birthday Card

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Did anyone do anything exciting?  Hope all the dads out there enjoyed the day.

For today’s card I used the adorable new Stampin’ Up Over The Moon Cling Stamp Set from the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.  My son’s birthday is this week.  My little preemie will be turning 24 and he’s over 6′ now.  He definitely takes after me with the height (not really).  Well, he hates puns, so that means I have to find stamp sets that have some kind of pun in them and this one fit perfectly.  Here’s my card.

My card for today also played along with a few challenges.  First off is Fab Friday challenge #165.  Here is their sketch.

Next I played along with Paper Craft Crew challenge #340.  Here is their theme.  I’ve known people that have had cows for pets.

I also played along with Color My Heart Color Dare #347.  Here are their colors.

I started with a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped one of the cow images from the Over The Moon stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the cow in using my Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers.

Using the Masking Technique, I masked the cow with a Post-It note that I had stamped and fussy cut the cow image from.  I then stamped the mountains from the Stampin’ Up Waterfront Photopolymer Stamp Set in Sahara Sand Ink.  I stamped the sand image and dirt image from the Waterfront stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink also.  I stamped the clouds from the Stampin’ Up Above The Clouds Photopolymer Stamp Set in Seaside Spray Ink above the mountain image.  I stamped the sentiment from the Over The Moon stamp set in Blueberry Bushel Ink on the card front.

I adhered the artwork to a Blueberry Bushel mat using Snail.  I adhered the matted artwork to another mat of Seaside Spray cardstock using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered a strip of Burlap Ribbon to the bottom of the Thick Whisper White card base using Snail.  I adhered the double matted artwork to the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped another one of the cow images from the Over The Moon stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, stamping off 4 times so that I got a very light image.  I stamped the clouds from the Above The Clouds stamp set in Seaside Spray Ink stamping off once.  I stamped the sentiment from the Over The Moon stamp set in Blueberry Bushel Ink.  I stamped the Happy Birthday from the Stampin’ Up Itty Bitty Birthday’s Cling Stamp Set in Blueberry Bushel just below the cow image.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Blueberry Bushel mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped one of the cow images from the Over The Moon stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the front of the envelope.  I colored the cow in the same as I did for the card.  I stamped the clouds from the Above The Clouds stamp set in Seaside Spray Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped another one of the cow images from the Over The Moon stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope flap and colored it in the same as I did for the card.

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

Stampin’ Up Sea Of Textures Birthday Card

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How is your holiday weekend going?  I love these 3 day weekends.  Is anyone going to or having a picnic today?  It’s a beautiful day here for a picnic.

For today’s card I used the Stampin’ Up Sea Of Textures Bundle.  This bundle will only be available at the discounted price for 1 more week.  It will be carrying ove to the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog, but not with the discount.  My daughter saw this stamp set and informed me I never made her a birthday card using it, so I made her a card. Here’s my card.

I joined in with a couple challenges with my card.  First is the Freshly Made Sketches challenge #389.  Here is their sketch.

I also joined in with the Color Throwdown challenge #544.  Here are their colors.  Their colors seemed very appropriate to use for today.

I started by adhering a panel of Tranquil Textures Designer Series Paper to a Night of Navy card base using Multipurpose. Liquid Glue.  I then used my Layering Circle Framelit Dies and cut through the 2 layers.  Starting from the largest circle and counting down to the smallest, I used #5.

Using #2 and #3 Layering Circle Framelit Dies I cut 2 circles out of the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper.  I layered them on top of one another using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and used the #5 Layering Circle Framelit Die to cut the circle in the center.  I adhered the circle frame to the cut circle on the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I added Metallic Pearls around the circle so it looks like a porthole.  I cut the net out using the Under The Sea Framelits from a panel of Tranquil Textures DSP and adhered it behind the porthole on the inside of the card.  I stamped the octopus from the Sea of Textures stamp set in Poppy Parade Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I cut the octopus out using the Under The Sea Framelits and adhered it partially outside the porthole and partially inside.

On a piece of Vellum paper I stamped the sentiment from the Sea of Textures stamp set in Night of Navy Ink.  I cut one end of the vellum into a banner.  I cut a sand dollar out of Sahara Sand cardstock using the Under The Sea Framelits and adhered it to the left of the sentiment using a Stampin’ Dimensional.  I adhered the sentiment strip to the card front using a Glue Dot under the sand dollar.

On the inside I adhered a panel of the Tranquil Textures DSP to the inside of the card base.  I stamped some of the coral and seaweed images from the Sea Of Textures stamp set in Soft Suede and Poppy Parade Inks.  I stamped the coral image from the Sea Of Textures stamp set on a panel of Whisper White cardstock in Poppy Parade Ink and cut it out using the Under The Sea Framelits.  I cut out some of the coral from the Under The Sea Framelits in Real Red cardstock.  I cut out some of the seaweed  from the Under The Sea Framelits in Balmy Blue cardstock.  I cut a sand dollar out from the Under The Sea Framelits in Sahara Sand cardstock.  I stamped the anchor from the Stampin’ Up Sailing Home Stamp Set in Sahara Sand Ink on a panel of Sahara Sand cardstock.  I cut the anchor out using the Smooth Sailing Dies.  I arranged the pieces on the bottom of the inside DSP panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, Glue Dots and Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I attached a piece of Night of Navy/Sahara Sand Bakers Twine to the anchor.  On a panel of Whisper White I stamped the coral images from the Sea Of Textures stamp set in Balmy Blue and Poppy Parade Inks stamping them off 3 times to get a very light image.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Itty Bitty Birthdays Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink on angles on the Whisper White panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the left side of the inside of the card under the porthole.  I cut another piece of the netting from the Under The Sea Framelits from a panel of Tranquil Textures DSP and adhered it over the 1st piece behind the porthole.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the coral from the Sea Of Textures stamp set in Balmy Blue and Poppy Parade Inks on the bottom of the envelope front.  I stamped the netting image from the Sea Of Textures stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink over the coral image and I stamped the octopus image from the Sea Of Textures stamp set in Poppy Parade Ink over the netting.  I adhered a panel of the Tranquil Textures DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try.  Don’t forget, if you are interested in purchasing the Sea Of Textures Bundle, now is the time to get it when you can still get a 10% discount on it.  It will be available in the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog, but you will have to purchase them individually.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Retirement List Clarification

It looks like every single stamp set from the 2018-19 Annual Catalog is being retired and that isn’t the case, the carryover sets are being transitioned to Cling Mount.

The stamp sets offered in clear-mount or wood-mount in the 2018–2019 annual catalog that are carrying over into the 2019–2020 annual catalog will be offered in clear-mount and/or wood-mount until existing inventory has been depleted or until June 4, 2019 (whichever comes first).

If the inventory is depleted, you will be notified of the automatic switch to cling when placing an order for that stamp set. This means that you may end up purchasing select cling stamp sets (in carryover artwork) before they can be ordered from the catalog!  All carryover rubber stamp sets will be available in cling medium only (with the exception of background stamps in North America) beginning June 4, 2019.

Stampin’ Up Floral Essence Sneak Peek

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers.  Well the weekend is here ready or not.  Has anyone made any fun plans?  I’m really hoping, in between working, to supervise getting some of my flowers in the ground.  I’m still with 1 arm and can’t seem to get the digging down properly yet.  I’ve mastered quite a bit 1 handed, most importantly card making.

So I have a little sneak peek for you today.  I’ve used a new stamp set coming in the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.  If you don’t have a demonstrator and would like a catalog, drop me a line and I’d be happy to send one out to you.  Here’s my card for today.

I’ve used a tiny bit of old and a whole lot of new on my card.  I’ve also played along with Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge #314.  Here’s their sketch.

I started with a panel of the soon to retire Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper and adhered it to a Blueberry Bushel card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered a panel of the gorgeous new Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper to a mat of Blueberry Bushel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the matted DSP to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Itty Bitty Birthdays Cling Stamp Set in Blueberry Bushel Ink to the left of the matted DSP.

On a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the flower from the new Stampin’ Up Floral Essence Photopolymer Stamp Set in Blueberry Bushel Ink.  I stamped the inside of the flowers in Crushed Curry Ink.  I stamped the leaf images from the same stamp set in Mossy Meadow and Old Olive Inks.  I colored the flowers in using my Balmy Blue Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I colored the leaf image in using my Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I fussy cut the flowers and the smaller leaf image out using my Paper Snips.  I punched the larger leaf image out using my Leaf Punch.  I arranged the flowers and leaves how I liked them on the card front and adhered them with Glue Dots and Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped a couple flowers from the Floral Essence stamp set on the bottom corner of a Whisper White panel in Blueberry Bushel Ink using the masking technique.  I stamped the leaves from the same stamp set in Old Olive Ink and the flower centers in Crushed Curry Ink.  I colored the flowers in using my Balmy Blue Stampin’ Blends Markers and the leaves in using my Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set in Blueberry Bushel Ink in the center of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Blueberry Bushel card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the flowers from the Floral Essence stamp set on the envelope front and colored them in the same as I did for the card.  I adhered a panel of the Perennial Essence DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card.  These products will be available on June 4th if you are interested in them.  It’s truly a beautiful suite.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up Soon To Retire Birthday Sentiments

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers.  The weekend is right around the corner, is anyone doing anything special for Easter?

For today’s card I used another soon to retire set,  Stampin’ Up Birthday Sentiments Stamp Set.  I am really going to miss this set.  I just love the large images, they are great for coloring. Here’s my card.

With the colors I chose for my card, I was able to play along with Hand Stamped Sentiments color challenge #312.  Here are their colors.

I started by stamping the large image from the Birthday Sentiments stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I colored it in using my Call Me Clover, Flirty Flamingo and Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the artwork to a Call Me Clover mat using Snail.

On a small strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the smaller sentiment from the same stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and made a banner out of it.  I edged the banner using my Call Me Clover Stampin’ Write Marker then adhered it to the artwork using Glue Dots.

Using my Big Shot, I ran a panel of Flirty Flamingo cardstock through using the Scattered Sequins Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  I wrapped a piece of the Lovely Lipstick Ribbon from the All My Love Ribbon Combo Pack around the card front and tied a knot.  I adhered the matted artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and then adhered the card front to a Flirty Flamingo card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few of the Call Me Clover and Lovely Lipstick Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots to the artwork.

On the inside I stamped the birthday cake image from the Stampin’ Up Amazing Life Stamp Set (retiring June 3rd), in Flirty Flamingo Ink stamping off once to a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up Itty Bitty Birthdays Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink over the birthday cake.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Flirty Flamingo card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the birthday cake on the envelope front and the scrolls on the envelope flap from the Amazing Life stamp set in Flirty Flamingo Ink.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. If you are really liking the stamp set I used, don’t wait to get it The retired items sell out pretty quickly.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! has posted their retiring lists for the 2018-19 Annual Catalog and 2019 Occasions Catalog.  Head over to my online store to pick up those retiring items now!  They’re only available while supplies last from now through June 3!

A few notes about the lists:

  • Due to high demand for retiring stamp sets, these items will have guaranteed availability until May 24; all other products are not guaranteed and are available while supplies last only.
  • Order deadline to get the retiring products:  June 3, 2019; 11:50 PM (MT)

Click the images below to head over to shop the specific retiring items:

Please note, some of the bundle items may be carrying over into the new 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.  However, the bundle pricing will go away, so get them while you can at the discounted price!!

Stampin’ Up! Retirement List Clarification

It looks like every single stamp set from the 2018-19 Annual Catalog is being retired and that isn’t the case, the carryover sets are being transitioned to Cling Mount.

The stamp sets offered in clear-mount or wood-mount in the 2018–2019 annual catalog that are carrying over into the 2019–2020 annual catalog will be offered in clear-mount and/or wood-mount until existing inventory has been depleted or until June 4, 2019 (whichever comes first).

If the inventory is depleted, you will be notified of the automatic switch to cling when placing an order for that stamp set. This means that you may end up purchasing select cling stamp sets (in carryover artwork) before they can be ordered from the catalog!  All carryover rubber stamp sets will be available in cling medium only (with the exception of background stamps in North America) beginning June 4, 2019.

Here is the list of stamp sets that WILL be in the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.  The stamp sets on this list will not be retiring, they will simply be transitioned to Cling Mount moving forward:

  • Accented Blooms
  • Animal Outing
  • Artisan Textures
  • Barn Door
  • Beautiful Day
  • Beautiful You
  • Bee Thankful
  • Birthday Backgrounds
  • Bokeh Dots
  • Botanical Bliss
  • Country Road
  • Crafting Forever
  • Dandelion Wishes
  • Dashing Deer

  • Sorry for Everything

  • This Little Piggy
  • Tropical Chic

Any other stamp sets in the 2018-19 Annual Catalog that are NOT on this list will be retired.  Sorry again for the confusion!  Stampin’ Up! is aware of the confusion and hopefully will be posting an updated list for us.

Stampin’ Up Dragonfly Dreams

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers.  Has anyone made any fun plans for the weekend?  It’s supposed to be a nice weekend here by me.  More like spring weather.

For today’s card I pulled out a set I haven’t used in a while, the Stampin’ Up Dragonfly Dreams Stamp Set.  Take a look.

I’ve combined 2 different challenges with my card today.  The Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #310.  Here is their sketch.

I also joined in with the Fab Friday #160 color challenge.  Here are their beautiful color combo.

I started with a Highland Heather card front and stamped 2 dragonflies from the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set in Versamark Ink.  I sprinkled them with Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat set them with my Heat Tool.  I adhered the card front to a Highland Heather card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Using my Big Shot, I cut out 2 of the largest dies from the Flourish Thinlits from a piece of Lemon Lime Twist cardstock.  I stamped the sentiment from the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set on a strip of Whisper White cardstock in Bermuda Bay ink.

I adhered a panel of Flirty Flamingo Brights 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Flirty Flamingo mat using Snail.   I adhered 2 pieces of the die cut to the sentiment strip using Snail, then adhered it to the matted DSP using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the matted DSP  to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Clear Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.  I colored one Clear Rhinestone Basic Jewel in using my Dark Bermuda Bay Stampin’ Blend Marker and adhered it to the sentiment strip.

On the inside on a Whisper White panel I stamped the dragonfly from the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set in Highland Heather Ink in the center.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Itty Bitty Birthdays Stamp Set in Bermuda Bay Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Highland Heather card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped a couple of dragonflies from the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set in Highland Heather Ink on the envelope front.  I adhered a piece of Flirty Flamingo Brights 6 X 6 DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for visiting my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try.  Hope everyone has a fantastic weekend.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up Postcard Pals

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  How is everyone’s week going?  We’re halfway through already.

For today’s card I played with one of my favorite sets, Stampin’ Up Postcard Pals Stamp Set.  I just love the little critters in this set, it’s such a fun set.  Here’s my card.

I was also able to join in with the CAS(E) This Sketch challenge #315.  Here is their sketch.

For my card I started with a Wood Textures Designer Series Paper card front and ran it through my Big Shot using the Pinewood Planks Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  It’s very hard to see in the picture, but the wood background has texture to it.  I adhered the card front to a Highland Heather card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I ran a strip of Highland Heather cardstock through my Big Shot using the Subtle Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and adhered it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the Otter image from the Postcard Pals stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the image in using my Balmy Blue, Call Me Clover, Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Highland Heather, Poppy Parade and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the image out using oval from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.  I cut out the scalloped oval in Balmy Blue Cardstock from the Layering Oval Framelits Dies  I adhered the stitched oval to the scalloped oval using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and then adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small piece of Glossy White cardstock I did the Shaving Cream Technique using Balmy Blue, Daffodil Delight and Highland Heather Classic Stampin’ Ink Refills.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Itty Bitty Birthdays Stamp Set in Versamark Ink on the marbled paper.  I sprinkled it with my Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat set it using my Heat Tool.  I cut the sentiment out using the smallest oval from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies and I cut the Balmy Blue scalloped oval from the Layering Oval Framelits Dies.  I adhered the stitched oval to the scalloped oval using Multipurpose Liquid Glue then adhered it to the bottom of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up Life Is Grand Stamp Set in Balmy Blue Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Highland Heather card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the otter image from the Postcard Pals stamp set on the front of the envelope and colored it in using my Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of Wood Textures 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!!
