Stampin’ Up! Four Season Floral CAS

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends.  How has everyone’s week started off?  Hope you are having a productive one.

For today I have a CAS card for you using a set that is  in the 2020-2021 Beginner Brochure. Here’s my card for today.

I started by embossing a panel of Whisper White cardstock using the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered a panel of In Good Taste Designer Series Paper across the middle of the panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the rose image from the Stampin’ Up! Four Seasons Floral Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the image in using my Just Jade and Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the image out using the 4th largest circle from the Layering Circles Dies and adhered it to a scallop mat, which I cut from a panel of Seaside Spray cardstock from the same dies, using Stampin’ Seal.

I wrapped a piece of Seaside Spray 1/4″ Metallic Ribbon around the card front and tied a bow.  I adhered the matted artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the card front to a Thick Whisper White card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Elegant Faceted Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Four Seasons Floral stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the rose image from the Four Seasons Floral stamp set in both corners of the panel in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored them in using my Just Jade and Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Seaside Spray mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the rose image from the Four Seasons Floral stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored it in using my Just Jade and Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of In Good Taste 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! Forever Fern Friendship

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends.  How has everyone’s week started off?  Yesterday was such a beautiful spring day here, cool in the morning and 70 in the afternoon with very low humidity, but a lot of pollen.  Don’t forget, today is the last day to sign up for my 2020-2021 Annual Catalog Paper Shares and the last day to purchase retiring items from the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog and the January – June Mini Catalog.

Today’s card is filled with new items for you from cardstock, to DSP to Stamp Set.  Here’s my card for today.

I started by adhering a panel of the Flowers For Every Season 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Magenta Madness card front using Snail.

I wrapped a piece of the Misty Moonlight/Silver Bakers Twine, from the Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Pack, around the card front 3 times and tacked it with Glue Dots on the back.  I adhered the card front to a Misty Moonlight card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern Cling Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink, stamping off once.  I cut the sentiment out using the 2nd smallest circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I cut a panel of Misty Moonlight cardstock using the scalloped circle that was just a bit larger that the stitched circle from the Layering Circle Dies.  I adhered the sentiment to the scalloped circle mat using Snail and then adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a couple Magenta Madness 2020-2022 In-Color Enamel Dots to the sentiment.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Thanks Photopolymer Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink stamping off once, in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped one of the fern images from the Forever Fern stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink on either side of the sentiment, stamping off twice.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Magenta Madness mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Misty Moonlight card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the fern image from the Forever Fern stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink, stamping off once then continuing to stamp without reinking, on the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of the Flowers for Every Season 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! Many Mates Jar of Flowers for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday.  How was everyone’s week?  We’re upon a holiday weekend, which normally I would have a lot going on.  I do have to work Sunday and I told my boss I would come in on Saturday for a couple hours to relieve the cashiers so they could take breaks.  These past few weekends no one was able to take a break it was so busy.  Plus, if I go in on Saturday and do some of my work in the office, I won’t have to go in on Tuesday (which is my daughter’s birthday).  Luckily we are closed on Monday, the store has been closed for  60 years on Memorial Day and they are not about to start opening now.

Onto my card for today.  I mixed up some retiring items along with some new items for today’s card.  I’m really determined to use up some more of my DSP that’s retiring.  Here’s my card for today.

My colors were inspired by Sunday Stamps Challenge #231.  I thought the 1st color of the pallet was Navy, but the more I look at it I believe it’s Black. Here are their colors.

My design is from Try Stampin’ On Tuesday Challenge #457.  Here is their sketch.

I started by cutting part of my card front off so that I had a half panel.  I took an 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″ card base and scored it at 4 1/4″.  From the top center I cut down to the 3″ mark.  I then turned my card base and cut from the center at that 3″ mark to the outside of the panel leaving just the bottom portion.  I adhered a panel of Old Olive Regals 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to the bottom portion of the card front.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the flower and jar images from the Stampin’ Up! Jar of Flowers Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.   I colored the flowers in using my Flirty Flamingo, Old Olive, Poppy Parade and Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the stem image from the Jar of Flowers stamp set in Old Olive Ink in the jar and punched it out using the Jar Punch.  I colored the stems in using my Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers, fussy cut the flowers using my Paper Snips and adhered them to the top of the jar using Glue Dots.  I cut the largest circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies  from a panel of Night of Navy cardstock.  I cut the largest scalloped circle from the Layering Circles Dies out of a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I took a 1″ strip of Whisper White cardstock and embossed it using my Lace 3D Embossing Folder.  On a thin strip of Poppy Parade cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Many Mates Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.

I adhered the embossed Whisper White strip to the top of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the Night of Navy stitched circle to the Whisper White scalloped circle using Snail and adhered it to the card front, hanging off the right side, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I cut the circle straight with the side of the card front.  I adhered the jar of flowers to the circle using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the Poppy Parade sentiment strip across the card front over lapping the embossed strip and the jar using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Noble Peacock Rhinestones to the card front.

On the inside I adhered a Rich Razzleberry Regals 6 X 6 DSP panel to the card base using Snail.  I stamped the sentiment from the Many Mates stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of the Whisper White panel.  I stamped the flower image from the Jar of Flowers stamp set in Night of Navy Ink over the sentiment, stamping off 4 times to get a very light image.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Night of Navy mat using Snail and then to the inside of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the flower image from the Jar of Flowers stamp set on the envelope front.  I colored the image in using my Flirty Flamingo, Old Olive, Poppy Parade and Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of the Regals 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.  I hope you all have a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend.  Stay Safe!!  Happy Stamping.

Stampin’ Up! Field Of Flowers Sneak Peek for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday.  How was everyone’s week?  Hope you had a productive one.  Is anyone doing anything this weekend?  A friend of mine was going to a nursery and I asked her to pick up a flat of flowers for me.  I’m hoping to get them planted around my gardens and in some of my flower pots.

For today’s card I have a fun fold that uses a whole sheet of cardstock along with giving you a sneak peek of a new bundle coming in the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.  Here’s my card for today.

My colors were inspired by Paper Players Color Challenge #490.  Here are their colors.

My design is from the CAS Colours & Sketch Challenge #370.  Here is their sketch.

I also joined in with Just Add Ink Challenge #505. Their theme is ‘Thinking of You!’

I started with an 8 1/2″ X 11″ panel of Pool Party cardstock.  I scored it in half at 5 1/2″.  I turned the panel the long way and scored it at 2 1/8″ & 6 3/8″.  It should look like the photo below.

I cut the top right and left side panels off at the score lines, it will look like the photos below.  After cutting the side panels off, I cut another 1/16″ off the gate folds so that the top would fold down flat.  The bottom portion will be a gate fold card and the top portion will fold down.

The bottom portion will be a gate fold card and the top portion will fold down.

I adhered a panel of Parisian Blossoms Specialty Designer Series Paper to a Pool Party mat using Snail.  On a Whisper White strip I stamped the foliage image from the Stampin’ Up! Field of Flowers Photopolymer Stamp Set in Granny Apple Green Ink.  I adhered the panel to a Pool Party mat using Snail.  On a scrap of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the tiny flower image from the Field of Flowers stamp set in Melon Mambo Ink a couple times.  I cut the images out using the Confetti Flowers Border Punch.  I also cut some of the flowers out of a scrap of Melon Mambo cardstock.  I randomly adhered the flowers to the stems using tiny dots of Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the matted panel to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On another small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Field of Flowers stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I stamped the larger stem image from the Field of Flowers stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink over the sentiment.  I stamped the single flower image from the Field of Flowers stamp set in Melon Mambo Ink on the stems.  I stamped the dragonfly image from the Field of Flowers stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink  below the sentiment and a couple times on the DSP.  I cut the sentiment out using the 2nd smallest circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I cut a scalloped circle out of Pool Party cardstock using the Layering Circles Dies that was a size larger than the stitched circle.  I adhered the stitched circle to the scalloped circle using Snail and then on top of the artwork strip using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Melon Mambo Noble Peacock Rhinestones to the artwork.

I adhered 2 panels of Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper to the 2 inside fold panels.  To keep with the colors, I colored the leaves and flowers on the DSP using my Granny Apple Green and Melon Mambo Stampin’ Write Markers.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Field of Flowers stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the stem image from the Field of Flowers stamp set on the side and bottom of the panel in Granny Apple Green Ink.  I stamped the double flower image from the Field of Flowers stamp set in Melon Mambo Ink on top of the stems.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pool Party mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Pool Party card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the stem image from the Field of Flowers stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped the flower images from the Field of Flowers stamp set in Melon Mambo Ink on top of the stems.  I stamped the dragonfly image from the Field of Flowers stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink near the flowers.  I adhered a panel of the Parisian Blossoms Specialty 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.  The stamp set/bundle I used will be available for purchase June 3rd.  The DSP and Noble Peacock Rhinestones I used will be retiring June 2nd or while supplies last.  Happy Stamping.

Stampin’ Up! Rooted In Nature 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 beautiful projects. If you’ve hopped over from Mary Deatherage’s blog, welcome to my blog and thank you for stopping by. The theme this month is “For The Boys/Men”. We can interpret this any way that we’d like.  I made a Father’s Day Card for you.  Here’s my card.

I started by adhering a panel of the Country Club Designer Series Paper to a Garden Green Mat using Snail.  I embossed a Whisper White strip of cardstock using the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I wrapped a Garden Green and Night of Navy piece of Twine  from the Country Club Twine Combo Pack around the card front and tied a knot.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the tall tree image from the Stampin’ Up! Rooted In Nature Cling Stamp Set which I colored using my Garden Green and Soft Suede Stampin’ Write Markers.  I cut the image out using the largest oval from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I cut the next size oval out from the Layering Ovals Dies from Garden Green cardstock. I adhered the artwork to the Garden Green mat using Snail and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the leaf image from the Rooted In Nature stamp set in Garden Green Ink, stamping off twice.  I stamped the sentiment from the Rooted In Nature stamp set in Garden Green Ink over the leaf image.  I cut the sentiment out using the smallest circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I cut the next size larger circle from the Layering Circles Dies from Garden Green cardstock.  I adhered the sentiment to the Garden Green mat using Snail and then to the card front, overlapping the artwork using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the card front to a Night of Navy card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Silver Metallic Pearls to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! A Wish For Everything Cling Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the tall tree image from the Rooted In Nature stamp set on the left side of the panel, which I colored using my Garden Green and Soft Suede Stampin’ Write Markers.  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 tall tree image from the Rooted In Nature stamp set which I colored using my Garden Green and Soft Suede Stampin’ Write Markers, on the front of the envelope.  I adhered a panel of the Country Club DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Mountain Air Birthday

Good Saturday morning my fellow stampers.  The weekend is upon us and we are back to chilly weather here.  I covered all my plants last night to save them from the frost.  I’ve got to work today, but I have off tomorrow for Mother’s Day.  How about all of you, what is everyone up to this weekend?

I’ve got a masculine card for you today using some of the new DSP from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.  Here’s my card for today.

My card today played along with the Aud Sentiments Challenge #250.  Their theme is ‘Masculine + A Sentiment’.

I also played along with Festive Friday Challenge #0058.  Here is their Inspo List.  I used copper, green and circles.  There’s also stripes from the wood.

I started by adhering a panel of the gorgeous new In Good Taste Designer Series Paper to a Shaded Spruce card base using Snail.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the detailed mountain image from the Stampin’ Up! Mountain Air Photopolymer Stamp Set in Crumb Cake Ink.  I flipped the stamp over and stamped the reverse image in Crumb Cake Ink, stamping off once, behind the detailed mountain.  I stamped the tree image from the Mountain Air stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink below the mountain image.  I stamped the cloud/moon image from the Mountain Air stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink above the mountain.  I colored the moon in using my So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the bird image from the Mountain Air stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink above the mountains 3 times.  I cut the image out using the largest circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I cut a scalloped mat out of a Copper Foil Sheet using the largest scallop circle from the Layering Circles Dies.  I adhered the artwork to the copper mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! By The Dock Cling Stamp Set in Shaded Spruce Ink on a Whisper White panel.  I cut the image out using the smallest circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I cut a scalloped circle from a Copper Foil Sheet using the Layering Circles Dies.  I adhered the sentiment to the Copper mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and then adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I tied a small bow from the Linen Thread and adhered it to the sentiment using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Birthdays Cling Stamp Set in Shaded Spruce Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the detailed mountain image from the Mountain Air stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink on the bottom of the panel.  I reversed the stamp and stamped the image behind the mountains in Crumb Cake Ink, stamping off once.  I stamped the tree image from the Mountain Air stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink below the mountain image.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Crumb Cake mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Shaded Spruce card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the detailed mountain image from the Mountain Air stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink on the envelope front.  I reversed the stamp and stamped the image behind the mountain in Crumb Cake Ink, stamping off once.  I adhered a panel of the In Good Taste 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! Tasteful Touches Sneak Peek for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday.  How was everyone’s week?  Hope it was a productive one.  Is anyone doing anything for the weekend?  Sunday is Mother’s Day and I’m hoping to enjoy some crafting time.  It’s suppose to be cold here this weekend.  They are talking about getting snow tonight (which I’m actually not happy about).  I have to make some kind of tents tonight to try to protect my plants.  The last frost we had damaged a couple of them so I want to be prepared.

I’ve have a sneak peek for you today on some items from the new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.  I’ve made a peek-a-boo slider card for you using a new stamp set and the beautiful Just Jade cardstock.  I’m not a green fan, but I absolutely love this color.  Items for my card will be available June 3rd.  If you want to get the items early, you might want to consider joining as a demonstrator.  I’d be happy to help you do that, just drop me a line and I will help you.  We have an awesome team and I’d love to have you join us.   Here’s my card for today.

I started with the card front by stamping the leafy image from the Stampin’ Up! Tasteful Touches Cling Stamp Set in Shaded Spruce Ink on the Just Jade panel.  I stamped some in full strength ink and some stamped off twice. I set the panel aside.

I then worked on the inside of the card.  I folded the card center and cut a circle using the 4th from largest (2 1/4″) from the Layering Circles Dies and cut through both front and back.  I adhered a panel of the gorgeous new In Good Taste Designer Series Paper to the inside of the center card using Snail.  I opened the card center and lined up the 2 1/4″ circle die from the Layering Circles Dies with the already cut circle and cut through the DSP.  I scored and folded the card back and  adhered the card center using Tear &Tape Adhesive on the 1/4″ scored piece.  It should look like the photo below.

I adhered the card front to the card center using Snail on the front of the card center (hope this makes sense).  It will look like the photo below.

I opened all the panels so that I could cut the circle out of the card front.  I lined up the 2 1/4″ circle die from the Layering Circles Dies, with the circle from the card center and cut through the card front.

I stamped the sentiment from the Tasteful Touches stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink on the top of the card front. I added a couple Rhinestone Basic Jewels on either side of the sentiment.

I cut a scallop circle from a panel of Rococo Rose cardstock using the 3rd largest (2 1/2″) scallop circle from the Layering Circles Dies.  I cut the center out using the same circle (2 1/4″) I used to cut the card panels.  I adhered the scalloped circle frame to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I tied a small bow using the new Just Jade Gingham Ribbon from the Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack and adhered it to the card front using a Glue Dot.

I stamped the beautiful flower image from the Tasteful Touches stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a Whisper White panel.  I colored the image in using my Rococo Rose Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the image out using the 3rd largest circle (2 1/2″) from the Layering Circles Dies.  I added some Snail to the back of the image and lined it up behind the center card so that you could see it is centered in the circle.  I closed the card back onto the circle so that it was adhered to the card back.  You see the flower when the card is closed.

When you open the card you see a sentiment.  I stamped the sentiment  from the new Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers Cling Stamp Set in Shaded Spruce Ink in the center of the circle (which is actually on the small folded panel from the card front).  I stamped the feather image from the Tasteful Touches stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink around the sentiment, stamping off once.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the leafy image from the Tasteful Touches stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink on the envelope front.  Some are stamped in full strength and some are stamped off twice.  I adhered a panel of the In Good Taste DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my fun fold and will give it a try.  This is one of those fun folds that is easier to show than explain.  I may considering starting to do Facebook live videos when I do some of these fun folds.  They are much easier to show in person.  Hope you all have a wonderful Mother’s Day and you all get pampered the way we should for all the work we do.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Cow’s It Going

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends.  How was everyone’s Cinco De Mayo?  Did anyone have their own little celebration?  Yesterday I got to place my preorder for the new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.  My credit card is in a bit of shock.  I can’t wait to start giving you some sneak peeks.  There’s some awesome new things coming.

For today’s card I played around with another retiring set that always makes me smile when I make a card with it.  Here’s my card for today.

My design is from Sunday Stamps Getting Sketchy Challenge #230.

My colors are from Cardz 4 Galz Challenge #120.  Their colors are Black and Pink.

I also played along with Paper Players Theme Challenge #489.  Here is their theme.

I started by embossing a Flirty Flamingo card front using my Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the panel to a Basic Black card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped one of the cow images from the Stampin’ Up! Over The Moon Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the image in using my Light Basic Black, Flirty Flamingo and Dark Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the image out using the 2nd largest circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I cut a scalloped circle from a panel of Basic Black cardstock using my Layering Circles Dies.  I adhered the artwork to the scalloped circle using Snail and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a thin strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Over The Moon stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I colored a few Frosted Epoxy Droplets using my Dark Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blends Marker and adhered them to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Over The Moon stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I just love puns.  I stamped another one of the cow images from Over The Moon stamp set on the bottom of the panel in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored it in using my Light Basic Black and Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Flirty Flamingo mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Basic Black card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped 2 different cow images from the Over The Moon stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, one on the envelope front and one on the envelope flap.  I colored the images in using my Light Basic Black, Flirty Flamingo and Dark Granny Apple Green 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! Timeless Tulips Easter

Good Sunday morning my fellow stampers.  Hope you are having a great weekend.  It’s been raining here all weekend, so it kind of makes staying home easy.  I did have to work for a few hours yesterday and everyone that came to the store was very understanding and patient.

For today’s card I made you an Easter card using the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips Bundle and some pretty pastel colors.  Here’s my card for today.

My sketch is from Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #428.  Here is their sketch.

I played along with Just Add Ink Theme Challenge #498.  Here is their challenge. My “E” is Easter.

I was inspired by “Just Us Girls” Photo Challenge #529.  Here is their photo. Nothing says spring more that a pasture of tulips.

I started by adhering a panel of the Pleased As Punch Designer Series Paper to a Mint Macaron card base using Snail.

I cut a panel of Whisper White cardstock using the largest circle from the Layering Circles Dies.  I stamped the stem image from the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips Photopolymer Stamp Set 3 times in Mint Macaron Ink.  Using the largest scallop circle die from the Layering Circles Dies, I cut a panel of Mint Macaron cardstock.  I adhered the Whisper White circle to the scalloped circle using Snail.  I cut a small portion of the circle off to make a straight edge.  On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the largest tulip image from the Timeless Tulips stamp set 3 times in So Saffron Ink which I edged in Petal Pink Ink using my Sponge Dauber.  I punched all 3 tulips out using my Tulip Builder Punch.  I adhered the 2 end tulips to the circle using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and the center tulip using Glue Dots.  I adhered the artwork to the edge of the DSP on the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a small bow, which I made from the Mint Macaron 1/8″ Sheer Linen Ribbon, using a Glue Dot.

On a strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Mint macaron Ink.  I adhered the sentiment to a Mint Macaron mat using Snail and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the artwork.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! A Wish For Everything Cling Stamp Set in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the stem image from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink on the bottom of the panel.  I stamped the leaf image from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink a couple times on the stems.  I stamped the medium tulip image from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in So Saffron Ink and edged it using my Sponge Dauber in Petal Pink Ink on the stems.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Petal Pink mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Mint Macaron card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the front of the envelope with the stem and leaf images from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink 3 times.  I stamped the medium tulip image from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in So Saffron Ink edged with Petal Pink Ink, using my Sponge Dauber, 3 times on the stem images.  I adhered a panel of the Pleased As Punch 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.  Just a reminder, the Pleased as Punch Designer Series Paper which is part of the Coordination Products, will only be available until March 31st.  If you are liking this DSP, don’t wait to order it.  I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend and are making the best of the social distancing and quarantined situations by doing some fun crafting.   Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Hello Sunshine Inspiring Iris

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers. We’re halfway through the week already. Hope you are having a productive week.

I have another card from our card class last night that we made.  The ladies were busy making all the cards.  It was another fun night stamping with friends.  Here’s my card.

My colors were inspired by Fab Friday Challenge #184.  Here are their colors.

My design is from Global Design Project Challenge #230.  Here is their sketch.

I started by embossing a panel of Pretty Peacock cardstock using the Basket Weave 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the embossed panel to a panel of Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the matted panel to a Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the outlined flower image from the Stampin’ Up! Inspiring Iris Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink 3 times.  I stamped the stem fill image from the Inspiring Iris stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink on all 3 flower stems over the outlined image.  I stamped the flower fill image from the Inspiring Iris stamp set 2 times with Rococo Rose Ink and once with Petal Pink Ink over the outlined image.  I cut the flowers out using the 2nd largest circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  Using the Layering Circle Dies, I cut the scallop circle that fit the stitched circle from a panel of Pressed Petals Specialty DSP.  I adhered the artwork to the scalloped mat using Snail and I adhered the matted artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Under My Umbrella Photopolymer Stamp Set in Pretty Peacock Ink.  I punched the sentiment out using the Classic Label Punch.  I punched out another label  from Mint Macaron cardstock using the Classic Label Punch.  I cut the Mint Macaron label in half and adhered it to the sentiment label on each side using Snail  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a small piece of Petal Pink 1/4″ Metallic Edged Ribbon, which I tied into a knot, to the artwork using a Glue Dot.  I added a few Rococo Rose 2019-2021 In-Color Faceted Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Colorful Seasons Photopolymer Stamp Set in Pretty Peacock Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the flower fill images from the Inspiring Iris stamp set 3 times on the bottom of the panel, once in Petal Pink Ink and 2 times in Rococo Rose Ink.  I stamped the stem fill image from the Inspiring Iris stamp set 3 times in Mint Macaron Ink below the flower images.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pretty Peacock mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the flower outline image from the Inspiring Iris stamp set 3 times on the card front using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I stamped the stem fill image from the Inspiring Iris stamps set over the outlined images in Mint Macaron Ink and stamped the flower fill image from the Inspiring Iris stamp set twice in Petal Pink Ink and once in Rococo Rose Ink over the outlined images.  I adhered a panel of Pressed Petals Specialty 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!!
