Stampin’ Up Shimmer Tea Together

Good Sunday morning my fellow stampers.  How is everyone doing today?  Is anyone doing anything this weekend?  I’m going to work and if today is like the past couple weekends, it’s going to be crazy busy.

I have another clean and simple card for you today using one of my favorite stamp sets that’ll be retiring soon.  Here’s my card for today.

My design is from Inspire. Create. Challenge #068.  Here is their sketch.

I also joined in with Shopping Our Stash Challenge #419.  Their theme is ‘Mother’s Day’

I started by embossing a panel of Soft Sea Foam cardstock using the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder.  Using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, I adhered it to a Noble Peacock Specialty Designer Series Paper card front.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the tea cup from the Stampin’ Up! Tea Together Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I stamped the rose bud image from the Tea Together stamp set on the tea cup in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the rose bud images in using my Old Olive and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends markers.  I colored the edges of the tea cup in using my Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the image out using my Tea Time Dies.

I wrapped a piece of the Gold 1/4″ Shimmer Ribbon around the card front and tied a bow.  I adhered the teacup to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Greetings Cling Stamp Set in Old Olive Ink on a thin strip of Whisper White cardstock.  I adhered the sentiment to the tea cup using Snail.  I adhered the card front to a Soft Sea Foam card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Gold Glitter Enamel Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the tea pot image from the Tea Together stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Friend Like You Photopolymer Stamp Set in the center of the tea pot in Old Olive Ink.  I added a little shading to the tea pot using my Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to an Old Olive mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Soft Sea Foam card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the tea cup image from the Tea Together stamp set on the envelope front.  I stamped the sentiment from the Tea Together stamp set in Old Olive Ink in the center of the tea cup.  I colored the tea cup using my Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the rose bud image from the Tea Together stamp set on the corners of the envelope flap and the larger rose image from the Tea Together stamp set in the center of the envelope flap all in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the images in using my Old Olive and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers.

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

Stampin’ Up! Inspiring Iris

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s weekend?  I had to work both days, but I have today off, YAY!!  Today is my fur babies birthday, she turned 12.  I thought I’d share a couple pictures of her with you.  She was my mother’s day gift 12 years ago, and the best gift I ever received.  Her name is Jasmine. The 1st one is the day I got her, she was about 10 weeks old and the last one is recent.  She’s gotten a little grey, but still acts like a puppy at times.  She is definitely a mommy’s girl.  Thanks for letting me share.

Onto today’s card.  Tomorrow night we’re having our monthly card class.  We’re planning on making 4 Easter/Spring cards.  Here is one of the cards we’re going to make.

The colors in my card were inspired by Just Add Ink Challenge #494.  Here are their color.  I absolutely love these colors together, so soft and springy.

I also played along with Watercooler Wednesday Challenge #260.  Here is their theme.

I started by embossing a panel of Soft Sea Foam cardstock using the Stone 3D Embossing Folder which you can earn as a bundle with a qualifying order from Sale-A-Bration.   This embossing folder is one I’m really hoping carries over to the next Annual Catalog, it’s one of my favorites.  I took my Soft Sea Foam stamp pad and gently wiped it across the embossed panel shading the raised parts.  I then took my Smoky Slate stamp pad and gently wiped that across the panel.  I adhered the embossed panel to a Smoky Slate mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and adhered it to a Soft Sea Foam card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the large outline flower image from the Stampin’ Up! Inspiring Iris Photopolymer Stamp Set in Smoky Slate Ink.  I stamped the flower fill image from the Inspiring Iris stamp set in Petal Pink Ink over the outlined image.  I stamped the leaf fill image from the Inspiring Iris stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink over the outlined image.  I was able to get everything lined up so perfectly using my Stamparatus.  I cut the image out using my Stitched Rectangle Dies.  I cut a small panel of Smoky Slate cardstock using the Stitched So Sweetly Dies that was the same size as my rectangle.  I adhered the artwork to the Smoky Slate mat on an angle using Glue Dots and adhered it to my card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a small piece of Petal Pink 1/4″ Metallic Edge Ribbon which I tied in a knot to the artwork using a Glue Dot.  I added a few Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the artwork.

On a thin strip of Petal Pink cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Greetings Cling Stamp Set in Smoky Slate Ink.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! A Wish For Everything Cling Stamp Set in Smoky Slate Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the flower fill image from the Inspiring Iris stamp set in Petal Pink Ink over the sentiment.  I stamped the leaf fill image from the Inspiring Iris stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink below the flower image.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Smoky Slate mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Soft Sea Foam card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the outline flower image from the Inspiring Iris stamp set on the envelope front in Smoky Slate Ink.  I stamped the flower fill image from the Inspiring Iris stamp set in Petal Pink Ink over the outlined image.  I stamped the leaf fill image from the Inspiring Iris stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink over the outlined image.  I adhered a Soft Sea Foam panel of Subtle 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! Positive Thoughts Masculine Birthday

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends.  How is everyone doing today?   We’re half way through the week already and heading to the weekend.  We’re expecting another rainy day here.  I’m not sure if Mother Nature knows it or not, but it’s winter.  We’re supposed to get snow in the winter not rain.  I really need a snow day to be able to craft all day while my family is shoveling the snow.

Onto my card for today.  I’ve got a masculine card for you using one of my favorite sets from the 2020 January-June Mini Catalog.  Here’s my card.

My colors are from the Global Design Project Challenge #229.  Here are their colors.

My design is from the As You See It Challenge #219.  Here is their sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of Country Club Designer Series Paper to a Night of Navy card base using Snail.  I absolutely love these plaids in this DSP pack.  Perfect for masculine cards.

I stamped the fern image from the Stampin’ Up! Positive Thoughts Cling Stamp Set in Garden Green Ink on a panel of Crushed Curry Regals 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper.  I cut the image out using my Stitched Nested Dies.  I adhered the die cut to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered a strip of Garden Green cardstock across the artwork using Stampin’ Dimensionals I adhered the strip of Night of Navy cardstock along the bottom of the Garden Green strip using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Greetings Cling Stamp Set in Garden Green Ink.  I adhered the sentiment strip below the Night of Navy strip using Glue Dots.  Using the Coordination Nature’s Thoughts Dies I cut the feather  out of a scrap of Crushed Curry cardstock and adhered it to the card front using a Stampin’ Dimensional and Glue Dot.  I added a few gold Metallic Pearls to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! A Good Man Cling Stamp Set in Garden Green Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel. I stamped the fern image from the Positive Thoughts stamp set in Garden Green Ink, stamping off 3 times, across the sentiment.  I adhered a strip of the Country Club DSP to the side of the panel using Snail.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Garden Green mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Night of Navy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the fern image from the Positive Thoughts stamp set in Garden Green Ink on the envelope front 3 times without re-inking.  I adhered a panel of the Country Club 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!!
