Stampin’ Up! Forever Blossoms 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 Love is in The Air.  Here is my card that was inspired from the challenge photo.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Forever Blossoms Cling Stamp Set for my clean and layered card. I was inspired by the Heart Wreath and Colors from the photo.

I hope you will take a moment to visit The Card Concepts and join us for our challenge #168.  How are you inspired by this photo?

I started by embossing a Basic White card front using the Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to a Basic White Thick card base.

I cut the heart from a panel of Basic White cardstock using the Bouquet of Love Dies. This heart was used as my template for making the wreath. I cut 4 of the largest leaf dies from the Forever Flourishing Dies from a panel of Garden Green cardstock. I cut the leaves apart from the stem using my Paper Snips. I cut the larger flowers from panels of Flirty Flamingo and Petal Pink using my Cherry Blossoms Dies. I cut the tiny flowers from the panel of Petal Pink using my Bouquet of Love Dies.

I stamped the center of the heart with the sentiment from the Forever Blossoms stamp set in Flirty Flamingo Ink. I arranged the leaf dies around the heart the way I wanted them using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I arranged the larger flowers in a cluster on one side of the heart adhering some of them with Glue Dots and some with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered a few small flowers on the wreath using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the wreath to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the wreath.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Love & Happiness Cling Stamp Set in Flirty Flamingo Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the leaf images from the Forever Blossoms stamp set on the bottom of the panel in Garden Green Ink. I adhered the extra die cut flowers using Glue Dots on top of the leaves. I adhered the Basic White panel to the inside of the Basic White Thick card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the flower images from the Forever Blossoms stamp set on the envelope front and flap in Flirty Flamingo and Petal Pink Inks. I masked the flowers and stamped the leaf images from the Forever Blossoms stamp set around the flowers in Garden Green Ink.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Happy stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Love & Happiness Valentine

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone’s weekend going? I ended up working all day yesterday and it was like watching paint dry. There were customers, but it seemed like 1 would come in and check out then the next one would come in. Everyone buying salt, shovels and things to fix their snow blower. I have off today though YAY!!

I played with one of the DSP’s from the January-June 2022 Mini Catalog for today’s card. I don’t usually make Valentine cards, but I’ve made a few this year. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Love & Happiness Bundle along with the Sweet Talk Designer Series Paper or my card today.

I started by adhering a panel of Sweet Talk DSP to a Gorgeous Grape card base. I adhered 1 long panel of the Sweet Talk DSP to a Gorgeous Grape mat and adhered it to the left side of the card front.

I adhered 2 smaller panel of the Sweet Talk DSP to Gorgeous Grape mats and adhered them to the right side of the card front.

I cut and embossed a panel of Basic White cardstock using the Bouquet of Love Hybrid Embossing Folder. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Love & Happiness Cling Stamp Set on the panel of Basic White cardstock in Gorgeous Grape ink. I cut the sentiment out using my Bouquet of Love Dies and adhered it to the center of the heart. I adhered the heart to the center of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Iridescent Rhinestones Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Encircled In Friendship Cling Stamp Set in Gorgeous Grape ink. I adhered a strip of the Sweet Talk DSP to the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Gorgeous Grape mat and then to the inside of the Gorgeous Grape card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of the Sweet Talk DSP on the envelope front and a panel 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! Love & Happiness 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 Theme Challenge. I decided to make an Anniversary card using our theme.  Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s awesome projects. Here is my card using this week’s Theme.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Love & Happiness Cling Stamp Set along with the Stampin’ Up! Sale-a-bration Friendly Hello Bundle for my card today.

Our theme is LOVE this week.

I started by adhering a panel of Friendly Hello DSP to a Basic Gray card base. I adhered 2 more panels of the Friendly Hello DSP to Basic Gray mats using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the longer panel to the card front first, then the shorter panel on top using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a Heart & Home Doily I masked off the circle by cutting a circle in the center of a Post-It Note and placing it over the doily. I stamped the bird image from the from the Friendly Hello stamp set in Versamark Ink on the doily. I removed the mask and immediately sprinkled it with my White Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I adhered the doily to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Love & Happiness stamp set in Basic Gray Ink. I stamped the tiny berry image from the Friendly Hello stamp set in Petal Pink Ink around the sentiment. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Love & Happiness stamp set in Basic Gray Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the flower image from the Friendly Hello stamp set in Petal Pink Ink on the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Petal Pink mat and then to the inside of the Basic Gray card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic Whtie Medium Envelope. I stamped the flower image from the Friendly Hello stamp set in Petal Pink Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the Friendly Hello 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! Love & Happiness 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.  Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects. Here is my card using this week’s Colors.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Love & Happiness Bundle along with the Sweet Talk Designer Series Paper for my card today.

Here are this week’s colors.

I started by adhering a Sweet Talk DSP card front to a panel of Petal Pink cardstock to give is a little more stability. I adhered a small panel of Sweet Talk DSP to a Petal Pink mat. I adhered the layered panel to a Sweet Talk DSP card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I wrapped a piece of the Petal Pink 1/8″ Cotton Ribbon from the 1/8″ Cotton Ribbon Combo Pack around the card front and tied a bow. I adhered the card front to a Petal Pink card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Using my Bouquet of Love Hybrid Embossing Folder, I cut and embossed a panel of Basic Whtie cardstock. I adhered the embossed heart over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals. On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Love & Happiness Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I cut the sentiment out using my Bouquet of Love Dies and adhered it to the heart using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the sentiment and heart.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Love & Happiness stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I adhered 2 thin strips of the Sweet Talk DSP to either side of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Petal Pink mat and then to the inside of the Petal Pink card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of the Sweet Talk DSP to the envelope front and a panel 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! Love & Happiness 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 amazing projects. If you’ve hopped over from Jaimie Babarczy’s blog, welcome to my blog and thank you for stopping by. The theme this month is “Love”.  We can interpret this however we want.  Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Love & Happiness Bundle along with the Sweet Talk Designer Series Paper for my Valentine card today.

I started by adhering a panel of the Sweet Talk DSP to a Highland Heather card base.

Using my Bouquet of Love Hybrid Embossing Folder, I embossed and cut a panel of Basic White cardstock. I adhered a panel of Sweet Talk DSP to the back of the panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and adhered it to the card front using Stampin Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic Whtie cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Love & Happiness Cling Stamp Set in Gorgeous Grape Ink. I cut the sentiment out using my Bouquet of Love Dies. I adhered the sentiment across the heart using Stampin’ Dimensionals. 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 Photopolymer Stamp Set in Gorgeous Grape Ink on a Basic White panel. I adhered a strip of the Sweet Talk DSP to the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Basic White mat and then to the inside of the Highland Heather card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of the Sweet Talk DSP to the envelope front and a panel 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. Now that you’ve seen my card, be sure to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects. Hit Previous to hop back to Jaimie Babarczy’s blog or hit Next to head over to Tara Carpenter’s blog.
