Stampin’ Up! Warm Hugs for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends and welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. Hope you are all doing well today.  If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we have a Theme challenge. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects .
Here is our Theme for this week.

Here is my card using this Theme.

My design is from Try Stamping on Tuesday Challenge #477. Here is their sketch.

I also played along with “Just Us Girls” Word Week Challenge #556. Here is their word.

I started by adhering a panel of Plaid Tidings 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Shaded Spruce card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I embossed a panel of Shaded Spruce card stock using the Wrapped in Texture Embossing Folder and adhering it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I cut a panel of Cherry Cobbler cardstock using the largest square from the Layering Squares Dies. I cut a panel of Plaid Tidings DSP into a banner using my Paper Snips and adhered it to the Cherry Cobbler square using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the matted banner to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the outline mug image from the Stampin’ Up! Warm Hugs Photopolymer Stamp Set in Shaded Spruce Ink. I stamped the mug fill image in Shaded Spruce Ink, stamped off once. I colored the inside of the mug in using my Crumb Cake Stampn’ Blends Markers. I stamped the decorative round border image from the Warm Hugs stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink. I stamped the sentiment from the Warm Hugs stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink. I cut the images out using my Warm Wrapped Dies. I cut the other small panel of Whisper White cardstock using the 4th largest square from the Layering Square Dies and stamped the steam image from the Warm Hugs stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink. I adhered the die cut mug below the steam using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals and the sentiment using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the artwork to the banner using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I added a few Shaded Spruce Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Warm Hugs stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel. I stamped the outline mug image from the Warm Hugs stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the fill image in Shaded Spruce Ink, stamped off once, inside the outline. I stamped the steam image from the Warm Hugs stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink above the mugs. I colored the inside of the mugs in using my Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat using Stampin’ Seal 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 mug image from the Warm Hugs stamp set along the bottom of the envelope front the same as I did for the card.

I adhered a panel of Plaid Tidings DSP to 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! Country Home Harvest Blessings

Good Sunday morning my fellow stampers.  How is everyone’s weekend going?  I have our team meeting today, which will be virtual.  At least I’ll get to see all my team members.

I made a fall/Thanksgiving card for today.  I’m really starting to love the fall colors.  Here’s my card for today.

My colors were inspired by Sunday Stamps Autumn Awakenings Challenge #239.  Here are their colors.

I started by embossing a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the panel to a Cajun Craze mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I cut 2 panels of Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper using the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I adhered them to 2 Cajun Craze scalloped squares, I cut using the Layering Squares Die, using Stampn’ Seal.  I adhered them to the card front, overlapping in the center, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and trimmed off the pieces that were overhanging using my Paper Snips.  I adhered the card front to a Thick Very Vanilla card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Country Home Photopolymer Stamp Set in Cajun Craze Ink on a strip of Very Vanilla cardstock.  I adhered a thin strip of Cajun Craze cardstock to the back of the sentiment using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered a piece of Mint macaron Basket Weave ribbon, from the Basket Weave & Metallic Ribbon Combo Pack, to the card front using Glue Dots.  I adhered the sentiment over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Gilded Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Country Home stamp set in the center of a Very Vanilla panel using Cajun Craze Ink.  I adhered a strip of the Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP to t he bottom of the panel using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Cajun Craze mat using Stampin’ Seal 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 adhered the Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP to the envelope front and 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!!

The standard machine comes with all the plates you need to get started. The preorder will not include the replacement plates, but they will be available beginning with the customer launch on September 1.

Note that the Cutting Plates and Adhesive Sheets are already available to order. The optional Impression Mats are not be available; I’ll keep you updated on their availability.

So what sets our machines apart from the rest? Here are some of our favorite features:

  • Durable machines with high-quality results. The solid steel construction frame and rubber feet that securely grip the work surface produce crisp, clean, precise cutting and beautifully detailed embossing.
  • Easy to use. The machines and tools are designed for an intuitive die-cutting and embossing experience.

And just like the name suggests, our Magnetic Cutting Plates have fully-magnetic surfaces to make it easy to securely position your dies and keep them in place.
  • Simple to store. The platforms on both machines fold for space-saving storage and they look pretty too–the sleek, clean design suits any crafting space.

Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Autumn Hello for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends and welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop.  How is everyone doing today?  We have a couple new hoppers with our group. Welcome Julie Johnson and Nicole Bloxom, so excited that you joined us.  If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we have sketch challenge. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects .
Here is the fun sketch we had to work from.

Here is my card using this sketch.

I played along with the Paper Players Tic Tac Toe Challenge #506.  I went across the top. Here is their board.

I also joined in with Cardz 4 Galz Challenge #129. Their theme is ‘Just Saying Hello’.

I started by cutting 5 each of the smallest square from the Layering Squares Dies in Cajun Craze Cardstock, Crumb Cake Cardstock and Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper.  I embossed the Cajun Craze squares using the Meadow Moments Embossing Folder and I embossed the Crumb Cake squares using the Wrapped In Texture Embossing Folder.

I arranged the squares on a panel of Copper Brushed Metallic Paper and adhered them using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  On a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped 3 of the outline maple leaf image from the Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Autumn Photopolymer Stamp Set in Cajun Craze Ink and the fill image of the maple leaf in Cajun Craze Ink, stamped off once, over the outline image.  I stamped 2 of the outline oak leaf image from the Beautiful Autumn stamp set in Bumblebee Ink and the fill image of the oak leaf in Bumblebee Ink, stamped off once, over the outlined image.  I stamped 3 of the acorn outline image from the Beautiful Autumn stamp set in Early Espresso Ink.  I stamped the fill images of the acorn in Early Espresso Ink, stamped off once, for the top and Crumb Cake Ink, stamped off once, for the bottom.  I stamped 2 of the pinecone outline image from the Beautiful Autumn stamp set in Early Espresso Ink, stamped off once, and the fill image from the pinecone image in Early Espresso Ink, stamped off twice, over the outlined image.  Using the Autumn Punch Pack I punched out the acorns, maple leaves and oak leaves, I fussy cut the pinecones using my Paper Snips.

I adhered the acorns, leaves and pinecones on the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals in each cardstock square.  I wrapped a piece of Mint Macaron Basket Weave Ribbon from the Basket Weave & Metallic Ribbon Combo Pack, around the metallic card front adhering it in the back using Stampin’ Seal.  I wrapped a piece of the Metallic ribbon from the Basket Weave & Metallic Ribbon Combo Pack around the basket weave ribbon and tied a bow.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! To A Wild Rose Photopolymer Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink on a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock.  I cut the sentiment out using my Tasteful Labels Dies.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the card front to a Very Vanilla card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the sentiment and card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Beautiful Autumn stamp set in Early Espresso Ink in the center of a Very Vanilla panel.  I stamped the acorn, leaves and pinecone images from the Beautiful Autumn stamp set around the sentiment the same as I did for the card front.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Cajun Craze mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Very Vanilla card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I stamped the acorn, leaves and pinecone images from the Beautiful Autumn stamp set on the bottom front of the envelope the same as I did for the card front.  I adhered a panel of the Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper to 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! Framed Flowers for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday!!  How was everyone’s week?  The weekend is upon us, do you have any plans?  I had a wonderful day at the beach yesterday.  It looked a little iffy when we first got there with the fog and clouds, but it turned out to be an absolutely gorgeous day.  The sun was shining and the water was perfect.  By the afternoon we couldn’t even sit at our blanket the sun got so hot, so we went in the ocean for over an hour.  The waves were awesome, I’m guessing because of the storm we are supposed to get today.  I only came home with a little sunburn (ok, maybe a lot) and blistered feet because of the sand being so darn hot.  The beach is my happy place and now today it’s back to reality.

I have a corner flip fold card for you today.  Here’s my card.

I played along with The Paper Players Challenge #498.  Here is their Theme.

I started by adhering a panel of Flowers For Every Season 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Misty Moonlight card base using Stampin’ Seal.  I then cut my card front using my Paper Trimmer.  I placed the card front bottom edge down, at the 3″ mark on my trimmer and cut from the 2 1/2″ mark up to the 4 7/8″ mark.  I turned my card base a 1/4 turn (so the outside edge was down) and place it at the 3″ mark again on my trimmer.  I cut from the 3″ mark down to the 5/8″ mark.  I pushed the cut piece through from the bottom and flipped it around so the inside was now on the outside.

I stamped the frame image from the Stampin’ Up! Framed For You Cling Stamp Set in Cinnamon Cider Ink on a Cinnamon Cider panel.  I cut the frame out using the largest and 5th from largest squares from my Layering Squares Dies.  I adhered a small panel of Flowers For Every Season  DSP to the flipped corner using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the frame over the DSP using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added Antique Corners from the Antique Corners & Slides Elements to the 4 corners of the frame using Glue Dots.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers Cling Stamp Set in Misty Moonlight Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using my Hippo & Friends Dies.  I adhered a piece of Cinnamon Cider 2020-2022 In-Color 1/4″ Ribbon to the bottom of the card front using a Glue Dot.  I adhered the sentiment over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Just Jade 2020-2022 In-Color Enamel Dots to the sentiment  and the inner liner which shows through to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the leaf images from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Just Jade Ink around the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Cinnamon Cider mat using Stampin’ Seal 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 leaf images from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Just Jade Ink along the bottom front of the envelope.  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! Anniversary Rose for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday and a holiday weekend.  Hopefully most of you have today off for a nice long weekend and have some fun plans ahead.  I don’t normally work on Friday’s, so I’m off today and tomorrow.  This is one of the few holidays that our store is closed, and it’s been like this for 60+ years YAY!!

So, did you ever have one of those days you had all planned out and nothing went as planned.  That was yesterday for me.  I made a To Do List as soon as I got up at 5am (yes I’m an early bird).  I knew everything I had to get done and I knew I had plenty of time to get it all done.  Then vertigo hit followed by a panic attack.  I’ve never had an episode before so I didn’t know what was happening.  Long story short, I only got 1 thing done on my list and was not happy. Guess today’s another day to try.

For today’s fun fold I tried another one I’ve never done before.  I can’t remember what it’s called, so I’m calling it a flip card.  Here’s my card for today.

My colors, once again, were inspired by some roses I have.  I ordered plants a couple years ago and they sent me a free St. Patrick’s Day rose bush.  It looked dead when I got it, but I planted it anyway.  I had no clue what color, I thought it would be orange or green.  Here’s what I got.

This was the 1st rose of the season.

I went out yesterday to these 2 beauties.

I was amazed how the same plant could have 2 different color roses on it, 1st to the 2nd 2.

I started by cutting out the front of a Pear Pizzazz card base using the 2nd largest square from the Layering Squares Dies and set the square to the side.  I randomly stamped the outline leaf image from the Stampin’ Up! To A Wild Rose Photopolymer Stamp Set in Pear Pizzazz Ink around on the card front.

I stamped the rose image from To a Wild Rose stamp set in Daffodil Delight Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I colored the image in using my Daffodil Delight, Mango Melody and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the image out using my Wild Rose Dies.  I cut the 3rd largest square from the Layering Squares Dies out of the panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped it multiple times with the outline leaf image from the To a Wild Rose stamp set.  I colored the leaves in using my Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the 3rd largest scallop square out of a panel of Gray Granite cardstock using my Layering Squares Dies.

On the panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Many Mates Cling Stamp Set in Gray Granite Ink and cut the sentiment out using my Stitched So Sweetly Dies.  I adhered the sentiment to the bottom of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the Gray Granite scallop square to the Pear Pizzazz square I cut out from the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the stamped Whisper White panel on top of the Gray Granite square using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered the die cut rose to the Whisper White  square using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a couple Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front and 1 to the rose.

For the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern Cling Stamp Set in Gray Granite Ink on a Thick Whisper White panel.  I used Thick Whisper White because I knew this was the part that would be opened and closed and get a lot of wear.  I stamped the outlined leaf image from the To a Wild Rose stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink, some full strength and some stamped off.  I stamped the rose image from the To a Wild Rose stamp set in Daffodil Delight Ink, stamping off once, over the sentiment.  I adhered a Gray Granite panel to the inside of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I scored the Thick Whisper White panel at 2″ & 4″ and adhered it to the top left of the Gray Granite panel using Tear & Tape just on the right 2″ X 4 1/4″ part.  I accordion folded the Whisper White panel and closed the card front on top of it.  I adhered the artwork to the Whisper White panel through the square on the card front, fitting it back in where it came out of.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the outlined rose image from the To a Wild Rose stamp set in Daffodil Delight Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped the outlined leaf image from the To a Wild Rose stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink around the rose and on the envelope flap, some full strength and some stamped off.

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 very safe and fun 4th of July.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! A Good Man and Some Blog Candy

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends.  How is everyone doing today?  We are having one of the most gorgeous weekends here.  It’s been in the 70’s with only around 30% humidity.  I’m talking windows open, ceiling fans on all day and night.  Today is our ‘in person team meeting’, I’m really looking forward to stamping online with everyone.  I just have to go into work for an hour to relieve my cashiers and I have the rest of the day off.

For today’s card my niece asked me to make a Father’s Day card for my little nephews to give their dad, so I pulled out what I thought was the perfect set.  Here’s my card.

My design is from the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #439.  Here is their sketch.

I also played along with Cardz 4 Guyz Challenge #246.  Their Theme is ‘Father’s Day‘.

I started by adhering a panel of In Good Taste Designer Series Paper to an Early Espresso card base using Stampin’ Seal.

On a Whisper White panel, which I cut using the largest square from the Layering Squares Die, I stamped the father and son image from the Stampin’ Up! A Good Man Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. I colored the image in using my Balmy Blue, Crumb Cake, Ivory, Misty Moonlight and Real Red Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut a panel of Misty Moonlight cardstock with the largest square from the Layering Squares Die and embossed it using the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the Misty Moonlight panel on an angle to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the artwork to the top of the Misty Moonlight panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! By The Dock Cling Stamp Set in Misty Moonlight Ink.  I cut both ends of the strip using the Lovely Labels Pick a  Punch.  I wrapped a piece of Linen Thread around the sentiment 3 times and tied a knot.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few silver Metallic Pearls to the artwork and sentiment .

On the inside I stamped the father/son image from the A Good Man stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, stamping off twice, in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I cut the sentiment out of a panel of Misty Moonlight cardstock using the Word Wishes Dies and adhered it to the center of the panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Misty Moonlight mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Early Espresso card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the father/son image from the A Good Man stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front.  I colored the image in using my Crumb Cake, Ivory, Misty Moonlight and Real Red 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!!  Now onto the Blog Candy

Stampin’ Up! Forever Inspiring Iris

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends.  How is everyone doing today?  We’re halfway through the week already and a little over halfway through the month.   These past few months have been a blur.  I got a wonderful phone call yesterday.  My hair dresser called me to tell me they should be opening up June 1st.  I was so excited.  Just like many of you, I am in desperate need of a hair cut.  I’m not sure how this whole thing is going to work.  I’m assuming we have to wear masks and stay covered while there.   I’m sure I’ll find out.

For today’s card I pulled out a stamp set from the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog and paired it with some of the new DSP and Embossing Folder from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.  Here is my card for today.

My colors were inspired by Global Design Project #241.  Here are their colors.

My design is from Crazy 4 Challenges #535.  Here is their sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of the new Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper to a Pretty Peacock card base using Snail.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the outline iris image and the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Inspiring Iris Photopolymer Stamp Set in Pretty Peacock Ink.  I stamped the leaf fill image from the Inspiring Iris stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink and I stamped the flower fill image from the Inspiring Iris stamp set in Blushing Bride Ink.  I adhered the artwork to a Pretty Peacock mat using Snail.   I adhered some of the retiring Rose Metallic Thread to the back of the matted artwork using Snail.

I cut 3 of the 2nd smallest scalloped squares from the Layering Squares Dies out of a panel of Blushing Bride cardstock.  I cut 3 of the smallest squares from the Stitched Shapes Dies out in Soft Sea Foam cardstock.  I embossed all 3 squares using the new Greenery Embossing Folder and adhered them to the scalloped squares using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the 3 matted squares to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the matted artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I made a small bow using the Old Olive/Pretty Peacock 3/8″ Reversible Ribbon and adhered it to the bottom of the flowers using a Glue dot.  I added a few of the retiring Pretty Peacock Noble Peacock Rhinestones to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Inspiring Iris stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped just the leaf and flower fill images from the Inspiring Iris stamp set in Soft Seafoam and Blushing Bride Ink on the bottom of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Soft Sea Foam mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Pretty Peacock card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the leaf and flower fill images from the Inspiring Iris stamp set in Soft Sea Foam and Blushing Bride Ink on the front of the envelope.  I adhered a panel of the Forever Greenery 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! Tropical Hello

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  How has everyone’s week started off?  I’ve got a busy week ahead.  Today is my only day off 😦  Normally I only work on Monday’s and Wednesday’s, but it’s the end of the month and the 1st of May on Friday, so I have to work.  I don’t know about you, but April was a big blur to me.  When I was sitting at my desk yesterday I looked at the calendar and didn’t even realize that the month was just about over.  All my days are just blending together lately.

Today I used some more of the retiring items for my card.  I want to use them as much as possible because once they are gone, I won’t use them.  Here’s my card for today.

My colors were inspired by Fab Friday Color Challenge # 188.  Here are their colors.

My sketch is from Just Add Ink Challenge #502.  Here is their sketch.

I joined in with Always Fun Challenge #160 also.  There theme challenge is to use ‘Embossing Folders’.

I started by embossing a Pool Party card front using the Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder.  I embossed the top 1/3 then turned the cardstock around leaving about 3/4″ and embossed the bottom section.   I wrapped a piece of the 5/16″ Braided Burlap Trim around the un-embossed section and secured it on the back of the panel using Snail.  I adhered a strip of Grapefruit Grove cardstock just under the trim using Snail.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tropical Cling Stamp Set in Crumb Cake Ink.  I cut the panel using the 2nd largest square from the Stitched Shapes Dies, making sure the sentiment was in the top right corner.  I cut a scalloped square from a panel of Whisper White cardstock using my Layering Squares Dies.  I adhered the stitched square to the scalloped square using Snail.

On a panel of Blushing Bride cardstock I stamped the hibiscus flower from the Timeless Tropical stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink.  I highlighted the center of the flower using my Blushing Bride Stampin’ Write Marker and added some Clear Wink of Stella to the center of the flower.  I cut the image out using my In The Tropics Dies.  On a panel of Pool Party cardstock I stamped the leaf image from the Timeless Tropical stamp set in Bermuda Bay Ink 3 times.  I cut the images out using my In The Tropics Dies.  I adhered the leaves to the back of the flower using Glue Dots and adhered the flower to the sentiment square using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a Tropical Oasis Trinket just under the sentiment using a Glue Dot.  I adhered the card front to a Pool Party card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Grapefruit Grove Gingham Gala Adhesive-Backed Sequins to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Strong & Beautiful Cling Stamp Set in Crumb Cake Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the hibiscus image from the Timeless Tropical stamp set in Blushing Bride Ink on the bottom of the panel.  Using the masking technique, I stamped the leaves from the Timeless Tropical stamp set around the flower in Pool Party Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Blushing Bride 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 hibiscus from the Timeless Tropical stamp set in Blushing Bride Ink on the bottom front of the envelope.  I stamped the leaf image from the Timeless Tropical stamp set in Pool Party Ink around the flower and on the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Although the stamp set and dies will be carrying over to the new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog, the bundle pricing will not.  You can still save 10% by purchasing this bundle before June 2nd. Don’t forget, the Grapefruit Grove cardstock, Tropical Oasis Trinkets, Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder, the Braided Burlap Trim and the Gingham Gala Adhesive-Backed Sequins are all retiring.  Now’s the time to grab them before they’re gone.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Have A Beautiful Day

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends.  How has your week been going so far?

Today I was asked to be a Guest Star Stamper for Color Throwdown Challenge #589.  I am beyond thrilled to be doing this.  Here is the card I designed for their challenge today.

Here are the Color Throwdown Challenge #589 colors.

I started by stamped the script image from the Stampin’ Up! Very Versailles Cling Stamp Set in Smoky Slate Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I stamped the leaf image from the Very Versailles stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink over the script image.  I embossed the panel using my Subtle 3D Embossing Folder.

I adhered the artwork to a Real Red mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and then to a Basic Black mat using Snail.  I adhered the matted artwork to a Smoky Slate card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Very Versailles stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink.  I cut the image out using the smallest square from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I cut a Real Red scalloped mat using the Layering Squares Dies.  I adhered the sentiment to the scalloped mat using Snail and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Strong & Beautiful Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the leaf image from the Very Versailles stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink over the sentiment, stamping off once.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Real Red mat using Snail and then to a Basic Black mat using Snail.  I adhered the matted panel to the inside of a Smoky Slate card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the script image from the Very Versailles stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink on the envelope front. I stamped the leaf image from the Very Versailles stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink over the script image on the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of Smoky Slate Neutrals 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper 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! Wild About You

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  How is everyone’s week going?  How are you all doing with your Social Distancing?  I don’t know about you, but this is getting tougher as the days go by.  I miss spending time with my niece, nephews and all my other family members and friends.  I know this is all for the best, but I’m ready to go back to normal.

For today’s card, I made a real challenging one for me.  I’m not a big fan of Orange or Yellow, but I was determined to make a card using these colors.  Here’s my card for today.

My colors are from the Fab Friday Color Challenge #186.  Here are their colors.

My design is from the CAS(E) This Sketch Challenge #366.  Here is their sketch.

I also played along with Paper Players Theme Challenge #485.  Here is their theme.

I started by stamping the giraffe image from the Stampin’ Up! Animal Outing Cling Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I colored the image in using my Daffodil Delight and Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I then cut the image out using the Animal Friends Dies.  On a panel of Whisper White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Animal Outing stamp set in Soft Suede Ink and cut the sentiment out using the 2nd largest square from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I cut the scalloped square mat using the Layering Squares Dies out of a panel of Terracotta Tile cardstock.  I adhered the stitched square to the scalloped square using Snail and adhered the giraffe image to the square using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Using the giraffe pattern die from the Animal Friends Dies, I cut a Daffodil Delight panel twice.  I adhered the die cut panel to a Mango Melody mat, which I cut using the Stitched So Sweetly Dies, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered a piece of Terracotta Tile 1/2″ Scalloped Linen Ribbon across the middle of the panel using Snail.  I cut a panel of Whisper White cardstock using the Ornate Layers Dies and then embossed it using the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered a panel of Pumpkin Pie Regals 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Thick Whisper White card base using Snail.  I adhered the Whisper White die cut panel to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the matted die cut panel on top of the Whisper White panel using Glue Dots and the artwork on top of the matted die cut panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Terracotta Tile 2019-2021 In-Color Faceted Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! A Big Thank You Photopolymer Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the giraffe image from the Animal Outing stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the bottom of the panel and colored it in using my Daffodil Delight and Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pumpkin Pie 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 giraffe image from the Animal Outing stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the bottom front of the envelope and colored it in using my Daffodil Delight and Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of the Mango Melody Brights 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper 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!!
