Stampin’ Up! Power of Hope

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s weekend?  It ended up being a beautiful weekend here. Did  anyone do anything fun?

For today’s card I used one of the Sale-A-Bration bundle that you can earn  with a $100 order.  I wasn’t sure I was gong to like it, but once I started playing with it I love it.  Here’s my card.

I played along with Fab Friday Color Challenge #182.   Here are their colors.

I also joined in with Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #421.  Here is their sketch.

I started by embossing a Coastal Cabana card front using the Stone 3D Embossing Folder.  This folder is only available with the stamp set as a bundle FREE with a qualifying order of $100 from Sale-A-Bration.  Using my Stamping Sponges I sponged Bermuda Bay Ink over the embossed panel to add some darker shading.  I adhered the embossed panel to a Coastal Cabana card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the image from the Stampin’ Up! Power Of Hope Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I cut the image out using the Stitched Shapes Dies.  Using the Layering Squares Dies, I cut the scallop square that fit the stitched square in Merry Merlot cardstock.  I adhered the stitched square to the Merry Merlot scalloped square using Snail and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the same panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Power of Hope stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using the Layering Ovals Dies.  I stamped the lantern image from the Power of Hope stamp set in Melon Mambo Ink, stamping off 3 times, over the sentiment.  Using my Layering Ovals Dies, I cut the scallop oval that matched the sentiment oval out of Merry Merlot cardstock.  I adhered the sentiment oval to the scallop oval using Snail and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a Melon Mambo Glitter Enamel Dot to the sentiment.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Power of Hope stamp set in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the tree image from the Power of Hope stamp set over the sentiment in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, stamping off 4 times.  I stamped the bottom image from the Power of Hope stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored the image in using my Melon Mambo and Merry Merlot Stampin’ Write Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Bermuda Bay mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Coastal Cabana card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the images from the Power of Hope stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front and colored the one image in using my Melon Mambo and Merry Merlot Stampin’ Write Markers.  I stamped the lantern image from the Power of Hope stamp set across the envelope flap in Bermuda Bay and Melon Mambo Ink stamping twice before reinking the stamp.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card.  Don’t forget, this Power of Hope Bundle is available as a Sale-A-Bration item FREE with a qualifying order of $100 or more.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Christmas Birds of A Feather

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  I’d like to take a moment to honor and thank all our Veterans.  I for one had 2 in my family.  My dad was in World War II serving in the Army and my brother was in Vietnam serving in the Navy.  My brother got out on medical discharge, but he still served shortly.  So Thank You to all those who have served for us.   How was everyone’s weekend?  Did anyone do anything fun and exciting?  After a fun cold time at the zoo on Friday, I had to work both Saturday and Sunday.  It was a bit colder than I expected this weekend.  I’m not quite ready for temps in the 40’s yet.  Fall is in full bloom here.  The leaves have changed and fallen from the trees (except for my tree in the front yard which always forgets that it’s fall).  My husband got to rake the leaves all day Saturday and of course my fur baby helped.  She supervised making sure he was doing it right.

For today I have a fun card for you using the Stampin’ Up! Birds of a Feather Cling Stamp Set.  I almost forgot that this set has a Christmas bird.  Here’s my card.

My colors were inspired by the CAS Colour & Sketch Challenge #346.  I was determined to make these colors work for a Christmas card.  Here are their colors.

My design came from the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #410.  Here is their sketch.

I started by embossing a Poppy Parade card front using the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder.  I wrapped a piece of the Silver 3/8″ Metallic Edge Ribbon around the card front and tied a bow.  I adhered the card front to a Poppy Parade card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the Christmas bird from the Birds of a Feather stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a Whisper White panel.  I cut the image out using the 3rd largest Layering Square Die.  I colored the image in using my Mango Melody and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I used some of the new Snowfall Accents Puff Paint on the fur part of the hat and the pompom.  I adhered the artwork to a Highland Heather scallop square cut from the 4th largest Layering Squares Dies.  I adhered the artwork to the scallop square using Snail and added a Star Designer Elements to the artwork.

I stamped the sentiment from the Birds of a Feather stamp set in Mango Melody Ink on the Whisper White panel.  I cut the sentiment out using the 4th largest Layering Squares Die.  I adhered the sentiment to a Highland Heather scallop square cut from the 5th largest Layering Squares Dies using Snail.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the artwork on top of the sentiment using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Birds of a Feather stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the Christmas bird image from the Birds of a Feather stamp set popping out on either side of the sentiment in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored them in using my Mango Melody and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Highland Heather mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Poppy Parade card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the bird image from the Birds of a Feather stamp set on the envelope front and colored it in the same as I did for the card.  I stamped the star image from the Birds of a Feather stamp set in Mango Melody Ink along the edges of the envelope flap.

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

Stampin’ Up! Path of Petals for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to Fun Fold Friday.  How was everyone’s week?  Hope it was a productive one.  I had off yesterday and I went non stop from early morning till late at night getting things done.  I did some of my fall cleaning and decorating, washed windows and changed curtains.  I even had some time to make a card for today.

I have a really quick and easy fun fold card for you today.  I’m not quite sure what the name of today’s fun fold card is.  I want to call it a corner fold card.  Take a look.

I started with a Rococo Rose card base which is 4 1/4″ X 11″.  I scored at the 5 1/2″ and then made a little mark 1 1/4″ from the score line on the front of the card.  I scored from that mark to the bottom right corner and folded the corner to the front.  To give it a little texture, I embossed the card front using my Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder.

Using the largest scallop square from my Layering Squares Dies, I cut the Pear Pizzazz panel.  I took the 2nd largest square from the Layering Squares Dies and cut my Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper out.  Using my Stampin’ Sponge, I sponged the edges of the Pear Pizzazz scallop square with Pear Pizzazz Ink.  I adhered the Pressed Petals Specialty DSP panel to the scallop square using Snail.  Using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, I adhered the Mossy Meadow panel to the card base lining up the corners of the square with the fold line.  I adhered the matted DSP to the Mossy Meadow panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Path of Petals Photopolymer Stamp Set in Mossy Meadow Ink.  I made the strip into a banner and sponged the edges with Pear Pizzazz Ink.  I adhered the banner under the scallop square using Glue Dots.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Path of Petals stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink in the center of a Very Vanilla panel.  I stamped the leaf image from the Path of Petals stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on the side of the panel.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to the inside of the Rococo Rose card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I stamped the leaf image from the Path of Petals stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink.  I stamped the flower image from the Path of Petals stamp set in Rococo Rose Ink on the leaf image.  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!!

Stampin’ Up Animal Outings for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday.  The weekend is here already, has anyone had a chance to make plans?  I feel like the weekend snuck up very quickly.  Gotta love these 4 day weeks.

For today’s card I was asked to make a baby shower card for a friend.  I had to put my thinking cap on for a bit to come up with an idea.  I don’t really have any ‘baby’ stamp sets, but then I remembered the one set that I have that would be perfect.  I made a ‘Z-Fold’ card for you, but my measurements are a little different than normal.  Here’s my card.

My card was able to join in with a few challenges today.  First off I played along with Global Design Project Color Challenge #205.  I thought these colors were perfect for a baby shower card (mom to be knows it’s a girl).  Here are their colors.

Next I played along with Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #332.  With a little work I made this work as a fun fold.  Here is their sketch.

I also joined in with Watercooler Wednesday Challenge #237.  They have a theme challenge and I thought how much more feminine could a baby shower card be.  Here is their challenge.

I started by stamping the momma kangaroo image from the Stampin’ Up Animal Outing Cling Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink on a small panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I colored the image in using my Rococo Rose and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the image out using my Animal Friends Dies.  I cut out a stitched square from Rococo Rose cardstock using the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I cut out a scalloped square from So Saffron cardstock using my Layering Squares Dies.  I adhered the stitched square to the scalloped square using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the kangaroo to the square using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered a strip of Rococo Rose card stock to the folded edge using Snail.  I adhered the artwork to the folded edge using Stampin’ Dimensionals only on one half.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Itty Bitty Greetings Cling Stamp Set in Rococo Rose Ink on a thin strip of Whisper White cardstock.  I punched the sentiment out using the Classic Label Punch and I cut the one edge straight using my Paper Snips.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using a Glue Dot and Mini Stampin’ Dimensional.  I attached a small bow made from Whisper White Solid Bakers Twine with a Glue Dot.

I wrapped a piece of the Rococo Rose 1/2″ Scalloped Linen Ribbon around the left side of the card.

On the inside I adhered a panel of the Mint Macaron Gingham from the Subtle 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper using Snail.  I adhered a Whisper White panel to a Rococo Rose mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Mint Macaron card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I did not stamp a sentiment on the inside because my friend wants to write something herself.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the kangaroo image from the Animal Outing stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the envelope front.  I colored the image in using my Rococo Rose and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of So Saffron Gingham from the Subtle 6 X 6 DSP 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!!

Stampin’ Up Rustic Retreat Waterfront Fun Fold Card

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to Fun Fold Friday.  How was everyone’s week?  Are you ready for the weekend?   I hope so because it’s here.

I have another fun fold card for you today that I’ve never done before.  I’ve seen this fold, but never attempted it.  I would love to hear from you if you’d like me to continue with my Fun Fold Fridays. Please leave a comment or you can email me at creativestampingdesigns@gmail.com.

Have you ever had one of those stamp sets that you just always seem to have trouble with?  Mine is the Stampin’ Up Waterfront Photopolymer Stamp Set.  I don’t know why I have so much trouble making cards with it.  Well I decided that today was the day to conquer that.  This artwork of my card took me 6 tries before I got it the way I liked it, but I refused to give up.  I was determined to make the scene on my card the way I pictured it.  You can be sure this card is going to someone special that saves my cards.  Here’s my card.

I joined in with Watercooler Wednesday Challenge #234.  Here is their theme.

I started with a Garden Green panel and scored it at 3/4″ along the 5 1/2″ side.  When you fold the panel you should have a 4 1/4″ X 5 1/2″ panel.  With the scored edge to the left and the paper lined up on my Grid Paper, I made tiny marks at the 2 3/4″ marks on the 3 sides.

I cut from the sides 2 3/4″ marks to the edge across from the scored edge 2 3/4″ mark as shown below.

Using my Layering Squares Dies I placed the die so that there was equal space from both edges to the die on my Garden Green panel and ran it through my die cutting machine.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Rustic Retreat Cling Stamp Set on the top of the Garden Green panel in Soft Suede Ink.  I stamped the bear image from the Rustic Retreat stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the bottom of the Garden Green panel.

I adhered the cut Garden Green panel to a Thick Very Vanilla card base, on the back of the opening edge, using Tear & Tape Adhesive.

I adhered a panel of the woodgrain paper from the Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper on the Thick Very Vanilla card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I closed the Garden Green panel over the card front and placed the smaller square die from the Layering Squares Dies centered inside the die cut making sure it was equal all the way around and used a Post-It not to hold it in place.  Opening the card up, I ran it through my die cutting machine to cut out the smaller square.  I made a tiny slit in the card front so that the corner of the Garden Green panel could slip in to stay closed.

This is where I had fun doing all the artwork that took me multiple tries because of my OCD.  I stamped the cabin image from the Rustic Retreat stamp set in Soft Suede Ink in the center of a Very Vanilla panel.  I colored the cabin in using my Cajun Craze, Crumb Cake, Gray Granite, Old Olive and Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the mountain images from the Waterfront stamp set behind the cabin in Gray Granite and Smoky Slate Inks stamping off once.  I stamped the small trees from the Rustic Retreat stamp set in Garden Green Ink in front of the mountains.  I stamped the water image from the Waterfront stamp set in Balmy Blue Ink below the cabin.  I stamped the sand image from the Waterfront stamp set between the water and cabin in Crumb Cake Ink.  I stamped the taller trees from the Waterfront stamp set on either side of the cabin in Shaded Spruce Ink.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Itty Bitty Birthday’s Cling Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink below the artwork.   I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Garden Green mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Thick Very Vanilla card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I stamped the cabin image from the Rustic Retreat stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped the tree image from the Rustic Retreat stamp set in Garden Green Ink on the envelope front also.  I adhered a panel of the Pressed Petals Specialty DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my Fun Fold card. I tried my best to explain what I did, please feel free to contact me if you have any questions. Happy Stamping!!
