Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Poppy Moments

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  How is your week starting off?  Tonight is my Stamp Camp Class so I have another pretty easy card since I’m not sure what kind of stampers the new ladies are.  Here’s my card.

I started by using the splatter image from the Stampin’ Up! Painted Poppies Cling Stamp Set and stamped the Pool Party card front using Pool Party Ink.  I stamped the 2 poppy images and the leaf image from the Painted Poppies stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a small panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I colored the images in using my Old Olive and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the images out using my Painted Labels Dies.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Moments Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using the 2nd smallest circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies making sure that the sentiment was near the top of the circle.  I cut the swirly circle  out of Sahara Sand cardstock using the Painted Labels Dies.

I adhered the sentiment to the center of the swirly circle using Snail.  I adhered the flowers and leaves to the bottom of the sentiment using Glue Dots.  I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and I adhered the card front to the Sahara Sand card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Love What You Do Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the poppy  and leaf image from the Painted Poppies stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the bottom of the panel.  I colored the image in using my Old Olive and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the splatter image from the Painted Poppies stamp set in Pool Party Ink all around the edges of the Whisper White panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pool Party mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Sahara Sand card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the splatter image from the Painted Poppies stamp set in Pool Party Ink all around the front of the envelope.  I stamped the poppy and leaf images from the Painted Poppies stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope flap.  I colored the images in using my Old Olive and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends Markers.

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

Stampin’ Up Love What You Do

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers.  How is everyone’s week going?  We finally have a couple days without rain.  As of Tuesday my husband was telling me it rained 27 of the past 29 days.  We really need to dry up a little around here.

For today’s card I’ve made a pretty quick and easy one.  I used the soon to retire How Sweet It Is Designer Series Paper.  Here’s my card.

I joined in with a couple challenges with my card today.  First off is Atlantic Hearts Sketch challenge #316.  Here’s their sketch.

Next is the Global Design Project Color Challenge #189.  Here are their colors.

I started with a Gorgeous Grape card front and adhered a panel of How Sweet It Is Designer Series Paper, which will be retired as of June 3rd, to it using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered a strip of Pineapple Punch cardstock to a mat of Gorgeous Grape cardstock using Snail.  I adhered the matted strip to the center of the card front using Snail.  I wrapped a piece of Coastal Cabana/Granny Apple Green 3/8″ Reversible Ribbon (retiring as of June 3rd) around the matted strip and the card front and secured it in the back using Snail.  I adhered the card front to a Coastal Cabana card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the image from the Stampin’ Up Love What You Do Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the flowers in using my Pineapple Punch Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the image out using my Big Shot and the circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I cut a scalloped circle out of Gorgeous Grape card stock using the Layering Circles Dies.  I adhered the stitched circle to the scalloped circle using Snail and then adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up A Big Thank You Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I made a banner of the sentiment strip and adhered it to the circle using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a couple of the Glitter Enamel Dots to the banner.

On the inside I stamped the flower image from the Love What You Do stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the bottom corners of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped them with the small watermark stamp from the same stamp set in Pineapple Punch Ink.  I stamped the large watermark image from the same stamp set in Pineapple Punch Ink in the center of the panel stamping off once.  I stamped the sentiment from the A Big Thank You stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink over the watermark.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Gorgeous Grape mat using Snail, then adhered it 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 flowers from the Love What You Do stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front and back.  I used the small watermark stamp from the same stamp set to color them in with Pineapple Punch Ink.  I adhered a panel of the How Sweet It Is 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! has posted their retiring lists for the 2018-19 Annual Catalog and 2019 Occasions Catalog.  Head over to my online store to pick up those retiring items now!  They’re only available while supplies last from now through June 3!

A few notes about the lists:

  • Due to high demand for retiring stamp sets, these items will have guaranteed availability until May 24; all other products are not guaranteed and are available while supplies last only.
  • Order deadline to get the retiring products:  June 3, 2019; 11:50 PM (MT)

Please note, some of the bundle items may be carrying over into the new 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.  However, the bundle pricing will go away, so get them while you can at the discounted price!!

Stampin’ Up! Retirement List Clarification

It looks like every single stamp set from the 2018-19 Annual Catalog is being retired and that isn’t the case, the carryover sets are being transitioned to Cling Mount.

The stamp sets offered in clear-mount or wood-mount in the 2018–2019 annual catalog that are carrying over into the 2019–2020 annual catalog will be offered in clear-mount and/or wood-mount until existing inventory has been depleted or until June 4, 2019 (whichever comes first).

If the inventory is depleted, you will be notified of the automatic switch to cling when placing an order for that stamp set. This means that you may end up purchasing select cling stamp sets (in carryover artwork) before they can be ordered from the catalog!  All carryover rubber stamp sets will be available in cling medium only (with the exception of background stamps in North America) beginning June 4, 2019.

Stampin’ Up Hello Cupcake

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s weekend?  We’re back to the cool weather here after the tease last Thursday and Friday.  That really gave me spring fever.  I’m ready for the warm weather.

For today’s card I used one of the cute Sale-A-Brations sets, Hello Cupcake Photopolymer Distinktive Stamp Set.

The colors for my card today went along with the ‘Just Us Girls‘ color challenge #479. Be sure to stop by to play along. Here are their colors.

The sketch I used went along with the Paper Craft Crew challenge #329.  Be sure to stop by to see what everyone has made and to play along.  Here is their sketch.

I started by stamping the cupcake image from the Hello Cupcake stamp set (FREE Sale-A-Bration item), using my Stamparatus, in Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight and Gorgeous Grape Inks on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I then fussy cut the image out using my Paper Snips and set it aside.

On a Whisper White card front I stamped the watermark image from the Stampin’ Up Love What You Do Stamp Set in Daffodil Delight Ink, stamping off once, a couple of times.  I adhered a piece of the Brights 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper, that I had cut out using my Big Shot and the largest oval from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies, over the watermark image.  I stamped the sentiment from the Hello Cupcake stamp set in Gorgeous Grape Ink on a scrap of Whisper White cardstock.  Again using my Big Shot, I cut the sentiment out with the second largest oval from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies making sure the sentiment was to the right of the oval.  I took a strip of Bermuda Bay cardstock, which I had made a banner from and ran it through my Big Shot using the Scattered Sequins Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (FREE Sale-A-Bration item), and adhered it under the sentiment oval using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the sentiment oval to the card front on top of the DSP oval, off centering it,  using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added some of the Silver Metallic Thread behind the cupcake image and adhered the cupcake to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a Glimmer Enamel Dot to the sentiment.  I adhered the card front to a Gorgeous Grape card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the cupcake image from the Hello Cupcake stamp set on a Whisper White panel stamping it the same as I did for the card front except I stamped it off twice to get a very light image.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Itty Bitty Birthday Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink over the cupcake image.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Gorgeous Grape card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the cupcake image from the Hello Cupcake stamp set the same as I did for the card front on the front of the envelope.  I adhered a piece of the Brights 6 X 6 DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Don’t forget, you have less than 2 weeks before Sale-A-Bration ends.   If you have your eye on one of the gorgeous stamp sets or something from the additional items, grab it before it’s too late.  Happy stamping!!
