Stampin’ Up! Gather Together Thank You Card

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Did anyone get to go apple picking or pumpkin picking?  The extent of my apple picking was going to Costco.  It’s not looking too promising for me going this year.

For today, I made another thank you card.  I need to send quite a few out in the next week or so, so I figured I’d better get busy making extra.  My card design and colors were a challenge given to us by my upline.  She’s doing a weekly challenge for our group.  Here’s my card.

Here are the sketch and colors for our challenge.

I started by embossing a panel of Crumb Cake cardstock using the Layered Leaves 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the embossed panel to a Crumb Cake card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Shaded Spruce cardstock I stamped the large leaf image from the Stampin’ Up! Gather Together Photopolymer Stamp Set in Versamark Ink.  I immediately sprinkled it with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I cut the image out using the Gathered Leaves Dies and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the larger pumpkin image from the Gather Together stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink.  I colored the pumpkin in using my Crumb Cake and Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blends Markers and cut it out using my Gathered Leaves Dies.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! New Wonders Cling Stamp Set in Shaded Spruce inside the pumpkin.  I adhered the pumpkin to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added 2 large and 2 small Pearl Basic Jewels that I had colored using my Dark Shaded Spruce and Dark Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blends Markers.

On the inside I stamped the smaller pumpkin image from the Gather Together stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink on the bottom of a Whisper White panel.  I masked the smaller pumpkins and stamped the larger pumpkin image from the Gather Together stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink next to them.  I colored all the pumpkins in using my Crumb Cake and Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! A Big Thank You Photopolymer Stamp Set in Shaded Spruce Ink in the center of the Whisper White panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Shaded Spruce mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Crumb Cake card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped and colored the pumpkin images from the Gather Together stamp set on the envelope front the same as I did for the inside of the card.  I stamped the large leaf image from the Gather Together stamp set in Shaded Spruce 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. Happy Stamping!!

Stampn’ Up Daisy Lane Sneak Peek

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  How are you all doing?

I’ve got a little sneak peek for you of one of the new stamp sets coming in the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.  It’s the Stampin’ Up Daisy Lane Stamp Set.  If you like daisies, you’ll love this set.  Here’s my card.

I played along with 2 challenges with my card today.

CAS(E) This Sketch #318  Here is their sketch.

Just Us Girls color week #484.  Here are their colors

I started by running a panel of Granny Apple Green through my Big Shot using the Layered Leaves 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the embossed panel to a  Daffodil Delight card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Next on some scraps of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the daisy image from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Mango Melody Ink multiple times.  I punched the daisies out using my Daisy Punch.  I layered the daisies together using Glue Dots.

I adhered the daisies to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and added a Basic Black Faceted Dot in the center of each daisy.  On another scrap of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Banners For You Stamp Set (retiring in June).  I stamped the banner in Mango Melody Ink and the sentiment in Granny Apple Green Ink.  I cut the banner out using my Big Shot and the soon to retire Bunch Of Banners Framelits Dies.  I adhered the banner over the bottom daisy using double Stampin’ Dimensionals so that it wasn’t squashing the daisy.

On the inside I stamped the stem from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink stamping off once on a Whisper White panel.  I stamped another daisy blossom from the same stamp set in Mango Melody Ink stamping off once.  I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink over the daisy blossom.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Daffodil Delight card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the daisy blossom image from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Mango Melody Ink on the envelope front and the envelope flap.

Thank you for visiting my blog today.  I hope you liked my sneak peek of one of the up coming stamp sets that will be available June 4, 2019.  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.

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
  • First Frost

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.
