Stampin’ Up Hold On To Hope Easter Card

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  How is your week going?  Was everyone able to hop around our Blog Hop yesterday?  There were some pretty amazing projects there.

For today’s card I made one last Easter card.  I really need to get these in the mail.  I used the Stampin’ Up Hold On To Hope Stamp Set and the Cross Of Hope Framelit Dies.  Take a look.

I started by adhereing a panel of the Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper to a Fresh Fig mat using Snail.  –  Just a little side note.  The annual catalog will be coming to an end the beginning of June.  The 2017-2019 In-Colors will be leaving.  These include Berry Burst, Fresh Fig, Lemon Lime Twist, Powder Pink and Tranquil Tide.  If you are wanting any of these colors in the cardstock, inks, Stampin’ write markers or ink refills get them fast.  These are the first items to usually sell out.

I adhered the matted DSP to a Sahara Sand card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Using my Big Shot, I cut a solid cross from the Cross Of Hope Framelits Dies out of Wood Textures Designer Series Paper.  I then cut the detailed cross from the same die set out of the Champagne Foil Sheet.  I adhered the detailed cross to the solid cross using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the cross to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Hold On To Hope stamp set in Fresh Fig Ink.  I cut the banner out  using my Cross of Hope Framelit Dies.  I adhered the banner over the cross using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the solid cross from the Hold On To Hope stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink stamping off once in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the foliage from the same stamp set around the corners in Tranquil Tide Ink.  I stamped the butterfly by the cross in Fresh Fig Ink stamping off once.  I stamped the sentiment from the  Stampin’ Up Itty Bitty Greetings Stamp Set in Fresh Fig Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Fresh Fig mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Sahara Sand card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the foliage from the Hold On To Hope stamp set in Tranquil Tide Ink on the envelope front.  I adhered a piece 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!!

Stampin’ Up Wishing You Well

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Did anyone do anything fun?  I don’t usually rush weeks, but the end of this week is OnStage.  I’ll get to see the new 2019-2020 Annual catalog and all the new goodies coming out.  Hopefully next Monday I’ll be able to share some things with you.

For today’s card I really went outside of my comfort zone.  It’s not straight, and I meant to do this, it’s just not my normal.  I used the Stampin’ Up Wishing You Well Stamp Set, which was carried over from the holiday catalog.  This set has the most realistic bow ever.  I think that is one of the reasons I bought it.  Here’s my card.

I also joined in with CAS Colours and Sketches #315.  Here are their colors for the week.

I started with a card front of the Brights 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper in Gorgeous Grape and adhered it to a Gorgeous Grape card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the bouquet from the Wishing You Well stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink.  I added the flowers to the bouquet in Gorgeous Grape Ink.  I cut the image out using my Big Shot and the Square Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.  I stamped the bow from the same stamp set in Grapefruit Grove Ink and fussy cut it using my Paper Snips.  I cut a scalloped square frame from the Layering Squares Framelits Dies out of Grapefruit Grove cardstock.  I did this by picking the scalloped square I wanted to use and took a solid square 2 sizes smaller and cut them out together with my Big Shot.  On a strip of Granny Apple Green cardstock I stamped the sentiment from Stampin’ Up Itty Bitty Greetings in Versamark Ink.  I sprinkled it with my Grapefruit Grove Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat set it using my Heat Tool.

It took me a while to arrange this to my liking, but once I got it I secured the frame in the corners using Glue Dots.  I adhered the artwork over the frame using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the bow to the bottom of the bouquet using a Mini Stampin’ Dimensional.  I adhered the sentiment to the bottom of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I added a few Grapefruit Grove Share What You Love Artisan Pearls to the artwork and the sentiment.

On the inside I stamped the bouquet from the Wishing You Well stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink, stamping off twice, in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the flowers in the bouquet in Gorgeous Grape Ink stamping off 3 times.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Strong and Beautiful Stamp Set in Gorgeous Grape Ink over the bouquet.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Grapefruit Grove mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Gorgeous Grape card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the bouquet from the Wishing You Well stamp set the same as I did for the card on the envelope front.  I adhered a piece of the Brights 6 X 6 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 All That You Are for Sunday Stamps

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  How has your week started off?  Spring officially starts tomorrow, now we just need the temperatures to go with it.

For today’s card I used the Stampin’ Up All That You Are Stamp Set.  This is another beautiful set that is great for coloring with your favorite coloring instrument. I decided to use a few of the soon to retire colors for my card.   Here’s my card.

My design was inspired by Sunday Stamps Sketch Challenge #200.  Be sure to stop by and play along with their challenge.  Here is their sketch.

I started with a Powder Pink card front and ran it through my Big Shot using the Pinewood Planks Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  I adhered the card front to a Sahara Sand card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of the Floral Romance Specialty Designer Series Paper I stamped the floral image from the All That You Are stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the leaves of the image in using my Daffodil Delight, Mossy Meadow and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I colored the flowers in using my Aqua Painter, filled with alcohol, and my Berry Burst, Fresh Fig and Powder Pink Inks.  I adhered the artwork to a Fresh Fig mat using Snail.  I added some Rose Metallic Thread to the back of the matted artwork then adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the ‘God Is Love’ sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Hold On To Hope Stamp Set in Fresh Fig Ink on a scrap piece of Powder Pink cardstock and cut it out using my Big Shot and the Cross Of Hope Framelits Dies.  I adhered the banner to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and a Glue Dot.  I added a few Pearl Basic Jewels to the artwork.

On the inside I stamped the floral image from the All That You Are stamp set in Powder Pink Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I stamped the ‘Easter Blessings’ sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Itty Bitty Greetings Stamp Set in Fresh Fig Ink on top of the floral image.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Fresh Fig mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Sahara Sand card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the floral image from the All That You Are stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front and colored it in using my Stampin’ Write Markers.  I adhered a piece of the Floral Romance Specialty DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you like my card and will give it a try.  If you really like any of the soon to retire 2017-2019 In-Colors, now is the time to get them.  Get them before the hit the retired list and sell out.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up Beautiful Detailed Anniversary Card for Fab Friday

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers.  Well the weekend is upon us already.  Have you made any plans?  Don’t forget to move your clocks ahead Saturday before you go to bed or Sunday morning as soon as you get up.

For today’s card I used the absolutely gorgeous Beautiful Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper.  This paper has a Petal Pink side and a Whisper White side.  I chose to use the Petal Pink side for my card.  Take a look.

I played along with the Fab Friday color challenge #158 for my card today.  Their colors are just beautiful together.  Here’s their color challenge.

I started with a panel of Calypso Coral cardstock and adhered a panel of the Beautiful Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper using Multipurpose Liquid Glue to it.  I adhered the card front to a Mossy Meadow card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Using my Big Shot I cut out 2 hearts from the Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies.  I cut one in Petal Pink card stock and one in Calypso Coral cardstock.  On the Petal Pink heart I stamped the Happy Anniversary from the Stampin’ Up Itty Bitty Greetings Stamp Set in Mossy Meadow Ink.  I connected the Petal Pink heart to the scalloped Calypso Coral heart using Stampin’ Dimensionals then adhered it to the card front.  I cut out a few embellishments from the Lovely Flowers Edgelits Dies in Mossy Meadow cardstock.  I adhered them under the hearts using Stampin’ Dimensionals or Glue Dots.  I added a couple Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the embellishments.  I colored a Heart Epoxy Droplet using my Dark Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blend Marker and adhered it to the Petal Pink heart.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Well Said Stamp Set in Mossy Meadow Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the heart cluster from the Stampin’ Up Forever Lovely Stamp Set in Calypso Coral Ink on either side of the sentiment.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Petal Pink mat using Snail then adhered it to the inside of the Mossy Meadow card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the heart cluster image from the Forever Lovely stamp set in Calypso Coral Ink on both sides of the envelope front and around the envelope flap.

Thank you for visiting my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try.  I love when I can let the paper do most of the work for me.  Hope you all have a wonderful weekend.  Happy Stamping!!
