Stampin’ Up! Rooted In Nature Peekaboo For Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday.  How was everyone’s week?  Is anyone doing anything fun this weekend?  Tomorrow is World Card Making Day and our team has a whole day planned out with videos from 9am-9pm, information below about it.

Today’s card is one that I made on Wednesday afternoon on my Facebook Live video.  If you were able to join me or you watched the replay, thank you very much.  If you’d like to view my video either on Facebook or YouTube, the link is below.   My card is actually a peekaboo card and not a folded one today.  Here’s my card.

I started by lightly adhering a panel of In Good Taste Designer Series Paper to a Gray Granite card base using the tiniest amount of Stampin’ Seal.  Using the largest tree die from the Nature’s Roots Dies, I cut the center of the card front.

I removed the DSP from the card base, very carefully not to tear the cardstock.  I stamped the large tree image from the Stampin’ Up! Rooted In Nature Cling Stamp Set in Gray Granite Ink, stamping off once.   I stamped the tree image through the card front so that it was aligned perfectly..

I adhered the DSP back to the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I cut and embossed the smallest leaf from the Nature’s Roots Dies in Bumblebee, Misty Moonlight and Seaside Spray cardstock.  I adhered the leaves to the card front using Glue Dots for the bottom 2 and Stampin’ Dimensionals for the top leaf.  I added a multi-looped bow I made using Linen Thread and Misty Moonlight/Silver Bakers Twine from the Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Comb Pack, with a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Autumn Goodness Photopolymer Stamp Set in Misty Moonlight Ink in the center of the tree.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Many Mates Cling Stamp Set in Misty Moonlight Ink on the bottom of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Misty Moonlight mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Gray Granite card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, making sure the tree lined up with the die cut card front.  I added a couple Bumblebee 2020-2022 In-Color Enamel Dots to the tree and the card front.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the largest leaf image from the Rooted In Nature stamp set on the bottom front of the envelope in Misty Moonlight, Bumblebee and Seaside Spray Inks.  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.  The list of supplies are below along with the measurements if you’d like to stamp along while watching the video.  You can watch it on my Facebook page Here.

You can also view the video on my YouTube channel Here.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Hand-Drawn Blooms Birthday

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends.  Hope your weekend is starting out good.  I have the day off, but have to go in tomorrow.  We had a great time yesterday at Crystal Cave.  My nephews loved it, especially the older one.  He loves collecting rocks and looking at that kind of stuff.  After the cave tour we went on a little hike, it was a little sticky out but it was still early enough that it hadn’t gotten too hot yet.  There were 8 of us that went and it was such a fun day.  I love spending time with my older nephew, niece and her boys along with my daughter and husband.

For today I used another new stamp from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.  One of my customers/friend let me borrow it since I wasn’t sure if I wanted to purchase it yet.  It comes in a bundle, but I only used the stamp for today.  I don’t know about you, but I have the sets that I know I have to have immediately and then the ones that I’m not positive about.  Here’s my card for today.

My design is from Global Design Project #250.  Here is their sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of Artistry Blooms Designer Series Paper to a Night of Navy mat using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered the matted panel to a Bermuda Bay card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Crumb Cake cardstock I stamped the large floral and the stem images from the Stampin’ Up! Hand-Drawn Blooms Cling Stamp Set in Versamark Ink.   I immediately sprinkled it with my White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I colored only a couple of the flowers in using my Coastal Cabana Stampin’ Write Marker.  I adhered the artwork to a Night of Navy mat using Stampin’ Seal.

I adhered the matted artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I tied a small bow using the 1/4″ Coastal Cabana Ribbon from the Playing With Patterns Ribbon Combo Pack and adhered it to the artwork using glue Dots.  On a strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Many Mates Cling Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink.  I cut the strip into a banner using my Paper Snips and edged the strip using my Night of Navy Stampin’ Write Marker.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and Glue Dots.  I added a few Coastal Cabana Artistry Blooms Adhesive-Backed Sequins to the artwork.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment and one of the small flower images from the Hand-Drawn Blooms stamp set in Night of Navy Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I colored the flowers in using my Bermuda Bay Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Night of Navy mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Bermuda Bay card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the large floral image from the Hand-Drawn Blooms stamp set in Night of Navy Ink partially on both sides of the envelope front.  I colored only a couple of the flowers in using my Coastal Cabana Stampin’ Write Marker.  I adhered a panel of the Artistry Blooms 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! Love and Laughter CAS

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends.  How is everyone’s week going?  I’ve been working Monday, Tuesday and today.  One of my full time cashiers was out and they needed someone to fill in, but I do have tomorrow and Friday off (so far).  We’re already halfway through the week and before you know it the weekend will be here.

For today I have a really quick and easy card for you.  I think this one may have taken me all of 10-15 minutes.  Here’s my card for today.

I started by adhering a Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper card front to a Pear Pizzazz mat using Stampin’ Seal.

I adhered one of the Forever Gold Laser-Cut Specialty Paper panels to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, just in the center.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern Cling Stamp Set in Garden Green Ink on a small panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I cut the sentiment out using my Stitched Rectangle Dies.  There wasn’t a die that cut it narrow enough so I had to make my own.  I lined the rectangle up with the top half of the sentiment and cut part way, making sure not to go all the way through.  I moved the rectangle up and lined it up with the bottom half of the sentiment and lined up the stitches on the cardstock with the stitches on the die and cut part way through again.  I adhered the sentiment to the gold laser-cut panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered the matted card front to a Garden Green card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Elegant Faceted Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Many Mates Cling Stamp Set in Garden Green Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the leaf image from the Forever Fern stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink multiple times on the bottom of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pear Pizzazz mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Garden Green card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the leaf image from the Forever Fern stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink multiple times on the envelope front.  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! Slice of Happiness

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends.  How has everyone’s week started off? Hope everyone is having a productive one.  I’m hoping the weather holds out and I can take a trip down the shore this week.  Where we go, we have to buy tickets in advance now with everything going on. Tickets go on sale at 7am and last week my niece and nephew tried to go and they were sold out before 7:10.  They are really limiting how many people can go on the beach, so fingers crossed that no one wants to go Thursday.

I have one more card for you today using the adorable Stampin’ Up! Cute Fruit Photopolymer Stamp Set from the beginner catalog and it’s a super simple one.  If you are new at stamping, this catalog is perfect for you.  It all starts with simple stamping, I just kind of added a little extra.  Here’s my card for you.

My colors were from TGIF Challenge #271.  Here are their colors.

I started by cutting 6 of the smallest square from the Stitched Shapes Dies out of Whisper White cardstock and 6 out of In Good Taste Designer Series Paper.  I adhered the squares to a Granny Apple Green card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the card front to a Flirty Flamingo mat using Stampin’ Seal.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the citrus fruit images from the Cute Fruit stamp set.  I stamped the outer lime image in Granny Apple Green and the inner lime image in Granny Apple Green stamped off once.  I stamped the outer orange image in Mango Melody Ink and the inner orange image in Mango Melody Ink stamped off once.  I stamped the outer grapefruit image in Mango Melody Ink stamped off once and the inner grapefruit image in Flirty Flamingo Ink stamped off once.  I stamped the smiley face image from the Cute Fruit stamp set on the limes in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.

I adhered all the fruit images to the stitched white squares using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I stamped the sentiment from the Cute Fruit stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a Mango Melody panel.  I cut the panel out using my Stitched Rectangle Dies.  There wasn’t one that fit perfectly so I had to make my own.  I did this by cutting part way through with the 2nd smallest Stitched Rectangle Die.  I moved the rectangle and made sure that the stitches were lined up, turned it around and ran it through my die cutting machine part way through again.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I tied a multi looped bow with Linen Thread and adhered it to the sentiment using a Glue Dot.  I adhered the matted card front to a Basic Black card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Rhinestones Basic Jewels to the fruit with out faces and the sentiment.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment form the Stampin’ Up! Many Mates Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the citrus fruit image from the Cute Fruit stamp set around the sentiment in Flirty Flamingo, Granny Apple Green and Mango Melody Inks.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Flirty Flamingo mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Basic Black card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the citrus fruit image from the Cute Fruit stamp set on the bottom of the envelope front in Flirty Flamingo, Granny Apple Green and Mango Melody Ink.  I stamped the face image from the Cute Fruit on the fruit in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  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!!

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! So Much Happy

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends.  We’re halfway through the week already and heading to a long holiday weekend.  I hope you all have Friday off for the 4th of July.

For today I used another new bundle from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.  Here’s my card for today.

I started by cutting the ‘HAPPY’ out of a panel of Playing With Patterns 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper using my Happy Dies.  I adhered it to a Night of Navy panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the sentiment on an angle on a panel of Purple Posy card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I cut out 2 strips of banners using my Happy Dies, one in Calypso Coral and one in Coastal Cabana.  I adhered one above and one below the sentiment using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Using my Paper Snips I trimmed all the excess that was hanging over the card front panel.  I stamped 1 large balloon and 2 small balloons from the Stampin’ Up! So Much Happy Cling Stamp Set in Calypso Coral and Coastal Cabana Inks on a Whisper White panel.  I cut the balloons, 3 strings and 3 bows out using my Happy Dies.  I adhered the strings to the back of the balloons using Glue Dots and the bows to the front of the balloons using a tiny dot of Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the balloons to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the So Much Happy stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on the Whisper White panel.  I fussy cut the sentiment using my Paper Snips and adhered it below the die cut sentiment using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the card front to a Purple Posy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Many Mates Cling Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the large & small balloons and strings from the So Much Happy stamp set in Calypso Coral and Coastal Cabana Inks.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Night of Navy mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Purple Posy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the large & small balloons and strings from the So Much Happy stamp set in Calypso Coral and Coastal Cabana Inks.  I adhered a panel of Playing With Patterns DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Turtle Love 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?  If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we had a Sketch Challenge. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects .
Here is the sketch we had to work from.

As soon as my daughter saw this stamp set she asked me to make a card for her using the Turtle.  She has a whole turtle collection.  Here’s my card using this sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of the Whale of a Time 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Balmy Blue card base using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered another panel of the Whale of a Time 6 X 6 DSP to a Balmy Blue mat using Stampin’ Seal and then adhered it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the turtle image from the Stampin’ Up! Whale Done Photopolymer Stamp Set in Just Jade Ink.  I stamped the sentiment from the Whale Done stamp set in Blackberry Bliss Ink below the turtle image.  I cut the image out using the 2nd largest oval from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I cut a scalloped mat out of Balmy Blue cardstock using the Layering Ovals Dies.  I adhered the artwork to the mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added some of the Whale of a Time Sequins to the card front using my Fine Tip Glue Pen.

On the inside I adhered 2 strips of the Whale of a Time DSP to either side of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Many Mates Cling Stamp Set in Blackberry Bliss Ink in the center of the panel.  I stamped the seaweed image from the Whale Done stamp set in Shaded Spruce ink on the bottom of the panel, stamping off once.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Balmy Blue mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Balmy Blue card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the turtle image from the Whale Done stamp set on the envelope front in Just Jade Ink.  I adhered a panel of the Whale of a Time 6 X 6 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! Just Because

Good Sunday morning my fellow stampers.  How is everyone’s weekend going?  We’re having an absolutely gorgeous weekend here, though I’ve been inside at work.  The humidity has been lower and the sun is shining, what more can you ask for.

I’ve used another new stamp set coming in the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog, coming this Wednesday June 3rd, for my card today.  My card has a LOT of stamping going on.  I’ve also used a couple of the 2018-2020 retiring colors, so if you like these colors, you only have 2 days left to get them.  Here’s today’s card.

My colors were inspired by As You See It Color Challenge #226.  Here are their colors.

My design is from CAS Colours & Sketch Challenge #372.  Here is their sketch.

I started with a Shimmery Whisper card front and randomly stamped the images from the Stampin’ Up! Lovely You Cling Stamp Set in Call Me Clover, Daffodil Delight and Lovely Lipstick Inks.  Some of the images are stamped full strength and some are stamped off to give different shades.

I embossed a panel of Call Me Clover cardstock using the new Greenery Embossing Folder.  I cut the smallest circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies out of Daffodil Delight cardstock and embossed it using the Tasteful Textiles 3D Embossing Folder.  On a panel of Lovely Lipstick cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Lovely You stamp set in Soft Suede Ink.  I cut the panel out using the 2nd smallest oval from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I adhered the Daffodil Delight circle and the Call Me Clover rectangle to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the Lovely Lipstick oval to the card front overlapping the Call Me Clover and Daffodil Delight panels using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered the card front to a Soft Suede card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and added a few Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots to the card front.

On the inside I randomly stamped the images from the Lovely You stamp set in Call Me Clover, Daffodil Delight and Lovely Lipstick Inks around the edges of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Many Mates Cling Stamp Set in the center of the panel in Soft Suede Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Call Me Clover mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Soft Suede card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I randomly stamped the images from the Lovely You stamp set in Call Me Clover, Daffodil Delight and Lovely Lipstick on the bottom of the envelope front and the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try.  Some of the items used today will be retiring as of Tuesday June 2nd and some will be available from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog starting Wednesday June 3rd.  I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend and are able to get out in some beautiful sunshine Happy Stamping!!
