Stampin’ Up! Ranunculus Romance Hello for The Card Concepts

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. We’re halfway through the week already and on our way to the weekend. I hope you are starting to make some plans.

It’s time for another inspiration challenge for The Card Concepts. The inspiration photo is Fresh New Year.  Here is my card that was inspired from the challenge photo.

I used the new Stampin’ Up! Ranunculus Romance Bundle along with the Pattern Party Host Designer Series Paper for my Clean & Layered card today. I was inspired by the beautiful roses in the photo along with the colors.

I hope you will take a moment to visit The Card Concepts and join us for our challenge #166.  How are you inspired by this photo?

I started by adhering a panel of the Pattern Party DSP to a Basic White Thick card base.

From a panel of Flirty Flamingo and Petal Pink cardstock, I cut a detailed and solid flower using my Ranunculus Dies. I adhered them together using a tiny amount of Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the flower to the card front.

From a panel of Basic White cardstock I cut the largest circle from my Layering Circles Dies. I stamped the rose image and sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Ranunculus Romance Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I cut the images using my Ranunculus Dies. I colored the rose image in using my Flirty Flamingo and Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends Markers. I embossed the large circle using my Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder. I cut the largest scalloped circle using my Layering Circles Dies from a panel of the Brushed Metallic cardstock. I adhered the embossed circle to the gold circle using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered a piece of the Petal Pink 5/8″ Organdy Striped Ribbon to the circle then the flower over it using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the layered circle to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the sentiment to the bottom of the circle using a Glue Dot and Stampin’ Dimensional. I added a few Iridescent Rhinestones Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Special Moments Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. This set is a Sale-a-bration item and can be earned FREE with a qualifying order. I stamped the rose image from the Ranunculus Romance stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the side of the panel and colored it in using my Flirty Flamingo, Granny Apple Green and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic Whtie panel to a Petal Pink mat and then to the inside of the Basic White Thick card base.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the rose image from the Ranunculus Romance stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I colored the image in using my Flirty Flamingo, Granny Apple Green and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of the Pattern Party 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! Daffodil Daydream for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends, Merry Christmas Eve, Eve! Is everyone just about ready for the big day? I’m not. I have to work all day today and I don’t have 1 gift wrapped. I still have to pick up a gift or 2, which may end up having to wait. The lines in the store were crazy the other day. Now if it’s something I can buy at the dog bakery or the hardware store, then I will get it.

Welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. If you are hopping over from Akiko Sudano’s blog, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we have a Sketch Challenge. I can’t wait to see what everyone has created this week. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s awesome projects. Here is my card using this weeks Sketch.

I used the new Stampin’ Up! Daffodil Daydream Cling Stamp Set along with Sale-a-bration items, the Stampin’ Up! Special Moments Photopolymer Stamp Set and Daffodil Afternoon Designer Series Paper for my card today.

Here is our sketch for this week.

I started by cutting the center of a panel of the Daffodil Afternoon DSP using the 3rd largest Stitched Rectangle Die.

I adhered the larger piece of the DSP to a Pale Papaya card base. I took the center piece that I cut out and flipped it over and adhered it to the center of the adhered piece on the card base. Can we just take a moment to look at this gorgeous DSP!!!

On a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the daffodil image from the Daffodil Daydream stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink, stamping off 3 times on a piece of scrap paper. I colored just the throat of the daffodil using my Pale Papaya Stampin’ Blends Markers. I went over what I colored using the Color Lifter Stampin’ Blend Marker so there was just a very light color. I stamped the sentiment from the Special Moments stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink over the stamped image. I cut the image our using the 4th largest Layering Circle Dies. I adhered a piece of the Pale Papaya 3/8″ Open Weave Ribbon to the card front and adhered the circle over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Special Moments stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Very Vanilla panel. I stamped the daffodil image from the Daffodil Daydream stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink, stamping off 3 times on scrap paper, and colored it the same as I did for the card front. I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Basic Black mat and then to the inside of the Pale Papaya card base.

To complete my card I decorated a Very Vanilla Medium Envelope. I stamped the daffodil image from the Daffodil Daydream stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and colored it using my Pale Papaya Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of the Daffodil Afternoon DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for visiting my blog today. Items used for my card today will be available starting January 4, 2022, from the January-June 2022 Mini Catalog and the Sale-a-bration catalog.

Stampin’ Up! Snowflake Wishes for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends! Welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. I hope everyone is doing well today. If you are hopping over from Karen Finkle’s blog, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we have a Color Challenge. I can’t wait to see what everyone has created this week. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects. Here is my card using this weeks Colors.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Snowflake Wishes Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Tidings of Christmas 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper, both which are from the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog, for my card today.

These are our colors for this week.

As some of you know, my favorite cards have multiple layers. So, for today, I’ve made a card with a lot of layers. I started by adhering a panel of the Tidings of Christmas DSP to an Evening Evergreen card base using Stampin’ Seal.

I adhered all the Tidings of Christmas DSP panels to the coordinating mats using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panels to the card front using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered a strip of Evening Evergreen cardstock across the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and wrapped a piece of the Misty Moonlight/Silver Bakers Twine from the Flowers for Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack around the card front and tied a bow.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Snowflake Wishes stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink and cut it our using the 3 from the smallest Layering Circles Dies. I adhered a Wonderful Snowflake to the card front using a Stampin’ Dimensional. I adhered the sentiment to the center of the snowflake using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Snowflake Wishes stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the small cluster of snowflakes image from the Snowflake Wishes stamp set on either side of the sentiment in Misty Moonlight Ink, stamping off once. I adhered the Basic White panel to an Evening Evergreen mat and then to the inside of the Evening Evergreen card base.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of the Tidings of Christmas DSP to the envelope front and a panel on the envelope flap.

Thank you for visiting my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Now that you’ve seen my card, take a minute to hop through all our projects today.

Stampin’ Up! Friendly Hello Sneak Peek 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 amazing projects. If you’ve hopped over from Jillian Good’s blog, welcome to my blog and thank you for stopping by. The theme this month is “Celebrate”.  We can interpret this however we want.  Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Friendly Hello Sale-a-bration Bundle for my card today.

I started by adhering a panel of the Friendly Hello Designer Series Paper (which is part of the bundle), to a Pool Party card base.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the bird on the branch image from the Stampin’ Up! Friendly Hello Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image in using my Crumb Cake, Fresh Freesia and Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image out using my Layering Circles Dies. I adhered the artwork to a scalloped circle which I cut from a panel of Basic White cardstock using the coordinating die from the Layering Circles Dies and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Friendly Hello stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock and cut it our using the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added some of the new Iridescent Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the flower centers and sentiment.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Happiest of Birthdays Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I adhered 2 strips of the Friendly Hello DSP to either side of the panel. I adhered the Basic Whtie panel to a Pool Party mat and then to the inside of the Pool Party card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the flower image from the Friendly Hello stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and colored them using my Fresh Freesia Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of Friendly Hello DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for visiting by my blog today, I hope you liked my sneak peek card and will consider putting this set on your list.

Stampin’ Up! Holly Jolly Wishes Fun Fold

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends. I hope you are able to enjoy a 4 day weekend and have some fun plans. I have always had off the weekend after Thanksgiving to do all my Christmas decorating. I like to get it all done in one weekend so that I can enjoy it for over a month. We have so many decorations and it takes so long to put everything out I like to enjoy it for a while. Unfortunately we are short handed at work so I have to go in.

Today’s card is yet another version of the card I made last Friday on my Facebook live. You can change this card around so much by just changing the color and DSP that you use. If you’d like to stamp along with the video, I’ve posted the links to the videos along with the measurements below. Here’s my card for today.

For today’s version I used the Stampin’ Up! Holly Jolly Wishes Cling Stamp Set along with the Sweet Stockings Designer Series Paper.

I started by embossing a Pool Party card front using the Checks & Dots Embossing Folder. I cut a panel of Sweet Stocking DSP from the right center in 2″. I then scored from the center cut line to the 2 corners using my Paper Trimmer. I adhered the DSP to the Pool Party card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the layered card front to a Pool Party card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut the 3rd largest circle from the Layering Circles Dies from a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the sentiment from the Holly Jolly Wishes stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink on the circle. I adhered the sentiment circle to a Cherry Cobbler scalloped circle mat that I cut using the coordinating die from the Layering Circles Dies.

I adhered the layered circles to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the circle. I tied a small bow using the Pool Party 3/8″ Striped Grosgrain Ribbon and adhered it to the layered circle using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Holly Jolly Wishes stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink on a Basic White panel. I adhered a strip of the Sweet Stockings DSP to the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat and then to the inside of the Pool Party card base.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of the Sweet Stockings DSP to the envelope front and a panel to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you like my fun fold card and will give it a try. To see the video on how to make this fold from last Friday on my Facebook page, you can find it Here. To view the how to video on my YouTube channel, you can find it Here. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Sweet Little Stockings Fun Fold

Good Friday morning my stamping friends. How was your Thanksgiving? Were you overstuffed from eating too much? I didn’t have too much of an appetite, so I didn’t over eat this year, which is good, lol. My daughter still loves watching the Macy’s Day Parade and I was listening to it while I was making my pumpkin swirl cheesecake and starting my pumpkin crescent rolls. I always have to go in to watch the end of the parade when Santa arrives, that tells me it’s ok to start decorating. My plan today is to get as much decorating done as I can since I have to work tomorrow and Sunday. I had all these big plans that I was going to have all my decorating done between yesterday and today. Oh Well.

Today and tomorrow’s cards are similar to last Friday’s that I made on my Facebook Live. Unfortunately I could do a live this week due to having pneumonia and not being able to stop coughing. I’m hoping to be back next week, hopefully this coughing will subside a little. I did post links to the videos below along with the measurements so that you can stamp along with the video. Here is another version of the fun fold card from last Friday.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Sweet Little Stockings Bundle along with the Sweet Stockings Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started with a panel of Sweet Stocking DSP and cut from the right center in 2″. I then scored from the center cut line to the 2 corners using my Paper Trimmer. I folded the 2 sides back creating the 2 triangles.

I embossed an Evening Evergreen card front using the Merry Melody 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the cut DSP to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and adhered the layered panel to an Evening Evergreen card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I cut a panel of Basic White cardstock using the 3rd largest circle from the Layering Circle Dies and stamped it with the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Sweet Little Stockings Photopolymer Stamp Set in Evening Evergreen Ink. I adhered the sentiment circle to a coordinating Cherry Cobbler scalloped circle that I cut from the Layering Circles Dies.

I adhered some of the silver Simply Elegant Trim to the card front and adhered the artwork on top of it using Stampin’ Dimensionals. On a small panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the little dog image from the Sweet Little Stockings stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image in using my Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image out using my Stocking Dies and adhered it to the bottom of the circle using Stampin’ Dimensionals. Using my Stocking Dies I cut 2 of the holly leaves and 2 of the berries from scraps of Evening Evergreen and Cherry Cobbler and adhered them to the top of the circle.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Sweet Little Stockings stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the Santa hat image from the Sweet Little Stockings stamp set on the sentiment in Tuxedo Black Ink and colored it using my Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a strip of Sweet Stockings DSP to the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat and then to the inside of the Evening Evergreen card base.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of the Sweet Stockings DSP to the envelope front and a panel to the envelope flap. I stamped the Santa hat image from the Sweet Little Stockings stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front right where I would write the address, and colored it in using my Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends Markers.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you like my fun fold card and will give it a try. To see the video on how to make this fold from last Friday on my Facebook page, you can find it Here. To view the how to video on my YouTube channel, you can find it Here. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! In The Moment Sneak Peak Christmas

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone’s weekend going? I hope you are having a relaxing one.

I have a sneak peek for you today using another stamp set that will be coming in the January-June 2022 Mini Catalog. I really love this set, it’s sketched images which are my favorite. I did a little paper piecing for my card today too. Here’s my card.

I used the Stampin’ Up! In The Moment Cling Stamp Set along with the Tidings of Christmas 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by embossing a Misty Moonlight card front using the Wintry 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered a panel of the Tidings of Christmas DSP to the bottom of the panel. I wrapped a piece of White 3/8″ Glittered Organdy Ribbon around the panel and tied a knot. I adhered the card front to a Misty Moonlight card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the image from the In The Moment stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image in using my Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, Evening Evergreen, Ivory, Misty Moonlight, Soft Succulent and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image out using the largest circle from the Layering Circles Dies. I stamped the sentiment from In The Moment stamp set on the same panel of Basic White cardstock in Misty Moonlight Ink and cut it out using my Layering Circles Dies.

I stamped the image again on a panel of Tidings of Christmas DSP in Tuxedo Black Ink. I fussy cut the pillow and blanket using my Paper Snips and adhered them to the artwork using a small amount of Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I cut the largest scalloped circle die from the Layering Circles Dies from a panel of Basic White cardstock. I adhered the artwork to the scalloped circle and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the sentiment to the card front tucked under the artwork. I added a few Cherry Cobbler Decorative Matte Dots to the sentiment.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Best Year Cling Stamp Set in Misty Moonlight Ink on a Basic White panel. I adhered a strip of the Tidings of Christmas DSP to the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat and then to the inside of the Misty Moonlight card base.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of the Tidings of Christmas DSP to the envelope front and a panel to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card and maybe have this set on your wish list for when the new catalog goes live. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Brew Some Fun CAS for Fun Fold Friday with Video Tutorial

Good Friday morning my stamping friends. Welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Does anyone have plans for the weekend? I’m actually off on Saturday, but will be at work all day Sunday.

Today’s card I made on my Facebook Live video on Wednesday. If you were able to join me or watched the replay, thank you. If you’d like to watch my video and stamp along, the measurements are below along with the links to my Facebook page and my YouTube channel. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Brew Some Fun Cling Stamp Set along with the Neutrals 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my simple fun fold card today.

I started by embossing a panel of Merry Merlot using the Hello & Thanks Embossing Folder. I then cut a panel of Neutrals DSP from the center of the 5 1/4″ side I cut in 2″. I scored from the center cut line to the 2 corners and folded them out. I adhered the DSP to the Merry Merlot card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and adhered it to a Crumb Cake card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut the 3rd largest circle from the Layering Circles Dies from a panel of Basic White cardstock. On the circle I stamped the trio of flowers image from the Brew Some Fun stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink and colored them in using my Night of Navy and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers. I colored the sentiment from the Brew Some Fun stamp set using my Merry Merlot and Night of Navy Stampin’ Write Markers and stamped it on the circle die. On the panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the coffee cup and the small bow from the Brew Some Fun stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the images in using my Crumb Cake and Night of Navy Stampin’ Blends Markers. I fussy cut the cup using my Paper Snips and cut the bow out using my Warm Wraps Dies. I adhered the bow to the cup using a Glue Dot and the cup to the bottom of the circle using a Stampin’ Dimensional.

I adhered the circle die to a scalloped circle which I cut from a panel of Night of Navy cardstock using the Layering Circle Dies. I adhered the layered dies to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Night of Navy Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Thanks Photopolymer Stamp Set in Merry Merlot Ink on a Basic White panel. I adhered a strip of the Neutrals DSP to the bottom of the panel. I stamped the coffee cup on the bottom of the panel and colored it in using my Crumb Cake and Night of Navy Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Night of Navy mat and then to the inside of the Crumb Cake card base.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the coffee cup and trio of flowers images from the Brew Some Fun stamp set on the envelope front and colored them in the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of Neutrals DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Happy Holly-Days for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew 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 Amy Koenders’ blog, welcome to my blog and thank you for stopping by. The theme this month is “Merry Christmas/Happy Holidays”.  We can interpret this however we want.  Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Happy Holly-Days Stamp Set along with the Whimsy & Wonder Specialty Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by embossing a Mint Macaron card front using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the embossed panel to a Mint Macaron card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered 2 panels of the Whimsy & Wonder DSP to Mint Macaron mats. I adhered one panel of the Whimsy & Wonder DSP to a Polished Pink mat. I adhered the longer layered panel to the top of the larger rectangle layered panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the Polished Pink layered panel to the top of the multi-layered panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the bird and holly images from the Happy Holly-Days stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the images in using my Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Mint Macaron, Pale Papaya and Polished Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers. I fussy cut the images using my Paper Snips. Using my Layering Circles Dies I cut a solid circle and coordinating scalloped circle from a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the sentiment from the Happy Holly-Days stamp set on the solid circle in Mint Macaron Ink and embossed the circle using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the circles together using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the bird image and holly image to the circle using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I wrapped a piece of the Silver Simply Elegant Trim around the multi-layered panel and tied a bow. I adhered the multi-layered panel to the embossed card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Happy Holly-Days stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the holly image from the Happy Holly-Days stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on either side of the sentiment and colored them in using my Mint Macaron and Polished Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Mint Macaron mat and then to the inside of the Mint Macaron card base.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the holly image from the Happy Holly-Days stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and colored it in the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of the Whimsy & Wonder DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for visiting by my blog today, I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Don’t forget to stop back tomorrow for my 3rd card using the Whimsy & Wonder DSP.

Stampin’ Up! Whimsical Trees

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend? It was a brisk sunny one here. Is everyone ready for another week? I have a very full week ahead planned out already.

My upline Jaimie has done weeks focusing on specific designer series paper. I thought I would give it a try. I have cards planned out for the entire week focusing on one of our beautiful DSP’s from the July-December 2021 Mini Catalog, which just happens to be my favorite DSP. Here’s my 1st one for the week which just happens to be a fun fold.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Whimsical Trees Cling Stamp Set along with the Whimsy & Wonder Specialty Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by scoring a full panel of Mint Macaron cardstock. With the 8 1/2″ side on the bottom of the trimmer I scored at 4 1/4″. I turned the cardstock so the 11″ side was on the bottom of the trimmer and I scored at 5 1/2″. I took my score blade out of my trimmer and lined up the corners with the cutting indent and cut the panel from corner to corner making sure to go through the center mark on the cardstock. This will give you 2 card bases. I folded the top triangle down and the side triangle over. I cut a panel of Whimsy & Wonder DSP from corner to corner so that I had 2 triangles. I adhered one of the triangles of the to the front of the Mint Macaron card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I cut a panel of Mint Macaron cardstock on an angle and embossed it using the Evergreen Forest 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered it to the bottom triangle card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I cut a panel of Silver foil from the Silver Foil Specialty Pack using the Encircled in Beauty Dies. Using my Layering Circles Dies I cut a circle from a panel of Basic White cardstock that would fit inside the Encircled in Beauty Die. I stamped the Basic White circle with the sentiment from the Whimsical Trees stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink. I adhered the sentiment to the center of the Encircled in Beauty Die. I adhered the layered sentiment to the right side triangle using Stampin’ Dimensionals only on the one side of the die cut image. I added a few Mint Macaron Genial Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Whimsical Trees stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the tree image from the Whimsical Trees stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the tree lights image from the Whimsical Trees stamp set in Versamark Ink over the tree image and immediately sprinkled it with my Silver Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Mint Macaron mat and then to the inside of the Mint Macaron card base.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the tree image from the Whimsical Trees stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink on the envelope front. I stamped the tree lights image from the Whimsical Trees stamp set over the tree in Versamark Ink and immediately sprinkled it with Silver Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I adhered a panel of the Whimsy & Wonder 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. Don’t forget to stop back tomorrow to see my 2nd card using the Whimsy & Wonder DSP. Happy Stamping!!
