Stampin’ Up! Corner Bouquet Anniversary

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend? Did anyone do anything exciting or fun? This time of year with the cold weather, other than work, I stay in and sometimes relax.

For today I have another Sale-A-Bration card for you. This is our last week to earn FREE product. There’s still time to place your orders and get your free items. For today I used the Stampin’ Up! Corner Bouquet Cling Stamp Set. Here’s today’s card.

My colors are from Color Throwdown #630. I just love these colors together.

I started by embossing a Mint Macaron card front using the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to a Blushing Bride card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the image from the Corner Bouquet stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink. I cut the image out using the Stitched Rectangle Dies and adhered it to a Gold Foil mat using Stampin’ Seal. Using the Confetti Flowers Border Punch I punched out some tiny flowers from a panel of Blushing Bride cardstock. I cut some other flowers out of the Blushing Bride cardstock using the Wreath Builder Dies. I adhered the flowers to the artwork using tiny amounts of Multipurpose Liquid Glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the matted panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I made a tiny bow using the Gold Trim from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack and adhered it to the bottom of the flowers using a Glue Dot. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Many Messages Cling Stamp in Soft Suede Ink and cut it out using my Messages Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the top of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added some Gold Glitter Enamel Dots to the flower centers.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Hearty To Heart Photopolymer Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the image from the Corner Bouquet stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink on the bottom of the panel and added some more of the Blushing Bride flowers I cut out using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Mint Macaron mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Blushing Bride card base using Stampin’ Seal. I added a few more Gold Glitter Enamel Dots to the flowers.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the image from the Corner Bouquet stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of Blushing Bride Subtle 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper 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! Art Gallery Quick and Easy Card Pack

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends. How has everyone’s weekend started off? I’ll be at work all day today and tomorrow. Last I heard, we will not be getting snow this weekend, but it’s still early to tell.

Today I have something a little different for you. I don’t have step by step instructions for you since I made a pack of cards. This would make a great gift for someone tied up with some ribbon or put in one of our Acetate Card Boxes and decorated. If you have any questions about any of the cards, please message me and I will explain how I made them. Here are the cards.

I used 1 sheet of the Fine Art Floral Designer Series Paper and 1 sheet of the Golden Garden Designer Series Acetate to make all 6 cards. I placed the acetate over the DSP, tacked it in a couple places using Glue Dots and cut 4″ X 5 1/4″ panels.

This card I used So Saffron and Poppy Parade cardstock and just did a simple layering. I stamped the sentiment from Stampin’ Up! Many Messages Cling Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink and cut it our with the Messages Dies. Adhered it to Hippo and Friends die cut mat and adhered it to the card front.

This card I used Petal Pink and Terracotta Tile cardstock and just did a simple layering. I stamped the sentiment from Stampin’ Up! Dressed To Impress Photopolymer Stamp Set in Old Olive Ink and cut it our with the Label Me Fancy Punch and adhered it to the card front. Stamped the large flower from the Stampin’ Up! Art Gallery Photopolymer Stamp Set in Petal Pink & Terracotta Tile, stem in Old Olive and cut images out with Floral Gallery Dies.

This card I used Bumblebee and Old Olive cardstock and just did a simple layering. I stamped the sentiment from Stampin’ Up! Strong & Beautiful Cling Stamp Set in Old Olive Ink, cut it our with the Stitched Nested Labels Dies and adhered it to the card front. Stamped the flower from the Stampin’ Up! Art Gallery Photopolymer Stamp Set using my Bumblebee and Old Olive Stampin’ Write Markers and cut image out with Floral Gallery Dies.

This card I used Pool Party and Night of Navy cardstock and just did an angle layering. I stamped the sentiment from Stampin’ Up! Art Gallery Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink, cut it out with the Floral Gallery Dies and the large sentiment out of Night of Navy cardstock and adhered them to the card front.

This card I used Blushing Bride and Merry Merlot cardstock and just did a simple layering. I stamped the sentiment from Stampin’ Up! Strong & Beautiful Cling Stamp Set in Merry Merlot Ink, cut it our with the Stitched Shapes Dies. I cut a scalloped mat from Merry Merlot cardstock using the Layering Ovals Dies, adhered the sentiment and adhered it to the card front.

This card I used Flirty Flamingo and Mossy Meadow cardstock and just did a simple layering. I stamped the sentiment from Stampin’ Up! Art Gallery Photopolymer Stamp Set in Mossy Meadow Ink, cut it our with the Messages Dies. I cut an oval mat using the Layering Ovals Dies, adhered the sentiment and adhered it to the card front.

Stampin’ Up! Many Messages Hello

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers. How was everyone’s weekend? Did everyone enjoy the Super Bowl?

I played with a couple bundles for today’s card. Once again, I couldn’t make up my mind what to use. I used the Stampin’ Up! Many Messages Bundle and the Stampin’ Up! Blossoms In Bloom Bundle for my card. Here’s my card for today.

I played along with Watercooler Wednesday Challenge #307.

I started by embossing a Basic White card front using the Painted Textured 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the card front to a Basic White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Using the Many Layered Blooms Die, I cut a panel of Petal Pink card stock and a panel of Mint Macaron cardstock. I adhered the Mint Macaron to the top of the Petal Pink using tiny amounts of Multipurpose Liquid Glue in the thicker spots. I adhered the die cut to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Many Messages Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I cut the sentiment out using the Messages Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. The Many Messages set is such an awesome set. It’s 1 stamp that you stamp all these sentiments and 1 die that cuts them all at once. I added a few Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Heal Your Heart Cling Stamp Set (Sale-a-bration item), in Tuxedo Black Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I just love the fonts and sentiments from this stamp set. I stamped the small flower image from the Stampin’ Up! Blossoms In Bloom Photopolymer Stamp Set in Petal Pink Ink on either side of the sentiment. I stamped the leaf image from the Blossoms In Bloom stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink next to the flowers. I stamped the flower center in Coastal Cabana Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Mint Macaron mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Basic White card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. Using the Blossoms In Bloom stamp set I stamped the small flower on the envelope front and flap in Petal Pink Ink. I stamped the leaf image near the flowers in Mint Macaron Ink and the flower centers in Coastal Cabana 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! Many Messages Hydrangea for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

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

Here’s my card using this sketch.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Many Messages Bundle for my card along with the gorgeous new Hydrangea Hill Designer Series Paper.

I started by cutting a panel of the Hydrangea Hill Designer Series Paper using the Stitched Rectangle Dies. I adhered the DSP to a panel of Misty Moonlight cardstock using Stampin’ Seal and then to a panel of Rococo Rose cardstock using Stampin’ Seal.

I embossed a Seaside Spray card front using the Scripty 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to a Seaside Spray card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the matted artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Using the Many Messages stamp set, I stamped the sentiments in Misty Moonlight Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I cut the sentiments out using the Messages Dies. I adhered a piece of Misty Moonlight/Silver Bakers Twine from the Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack to the artwork using a tiny amount of Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the sentiment over the bakers twine using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Pastel Pearls to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! So Sentimental Cling Stamp Set in Misty Moonlight Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I adhered 2 strips of the Hydrangea Hill DSP to either side of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Misty Moonlight mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Seaside Spray card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of the Hydrangea Hill DSP to the front of the envelope 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! Pampered Pets

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone’s week starting out? The next 2 weeks will be short working weeks for most. I know I’m looking forward to having Thursday and Friday off this week. I’ve gotten most of my cookie trays done, so I’m going to deliver a few this morning before going in to work. I’ll deliver the rest tomorrow.

For today’s card I pulled out the Stampin’ Up! Pampered Pets Bundle from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog and mixed it with the Stampin’ Up! Many Messages Bundle from the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog. Here’s my card for today.

My design is from Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #466. Here is their sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of Playful Pets Designer Series Paper to a Real Red card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered a small panel of Playful Pets DSP using Stampin’ Seal over the 1st panel.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the dog bowl image from the Stampin’ Up! Pampered Pets Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. I added a tiny amount of color around the edges of the bowl using my Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Marker then used the Color Lifter to remove most of the color. I embossed the panel using my Subtle 3D Embossing Folder. On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the dog image from the Pampered Pets stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. I colored the dog in using my Flirty Flamingo, Real Red and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image out using my Pets Dies and adhered it to the embossed panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the panel to a Real Red mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue then adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Many Messages Cling Stamp in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. I cut the sentiment out using the Messages Die. This bundle is 1 stamp with many sentiments on it and 1 die that cuts out all the sentiments at once and will be available January 5, 2021. I adhered the sentiment to the bottom of the artwork using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a couple of the Playful Pets Trinkets, one to the sentiment and one on the dog.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Pampered Pets stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel. I stamped the dog and bowl images from the Pampered Pets stamp set on the bottom of the panel in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored the image in using my Flirty Flamingo, Real Red and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Real Red mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Real Red card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the dog and bowl images from the Pampered Pets stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the front of the envelope. I colored the image in using my Flirty Flamingo, Real Red and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of the Playful Pets 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!!

WHISPER WHITE CARDSTOCK PRODUCTS- AVAILABLE WHILE SUPPLIES LAST

Stampin’ Up! announced this information related to the Whisper White paper products late last evening:

Whisper White has been a Stampin’ Up! staple for so long. We love it and we know you love it, too. We are sad to announce that the supplier’s mill producing our Whisper White cardstock has permanently closed due to impacts from the COVID-19 pandemic. Unfortunately, we weren’t given much notice on this closure. This means that the technology unique to this particular supplier is now unavailable to us and we can no longer offer our Whisper White cardstock and related products, such as Whisper White Note Cards & Envelopes. Please note that this won’t affect any of our other cardstocks, this only affects Whisper White.

We know Whisper White has a huge fan base; we’re big fans, too! And we are crushed that it’s going away. Even though this decision was out of our hands, rest assured that we jumped right into action to find the best replacement paper possible. We have dedicated many hours to source and test alternative cardstock options from several suppliers to find the perfect fit that still maintains the Stampin’ Up! quality you know and trust. We are happy to share that we have found a winner for our new cardstock, Basic White!

The quality of our new Basic White was thoroughly tested by our quality assurance and product teams. It also tested very well with demonstrators and concept artists who gave it a huge thumbs up. We believe in the quality of the new Basic White cardstock and we know it will become your new crafting staple!

What does this mean for you?

With Whisper White going out of production, this means a number of Whisper White products will be affected. Below is a list of all products that will be replaced with our new Basic White cardstock. These items are now available while supplies last with an order limit of 2 per item per order.

  • Whisper White 12″ x 12″ (30.5 x 30.5 cm) Cardstock (124302)
  • Assorted Memories & More Cards & Envelopes (149710)
  • Whisper White Note Cards & Envelopes (131527)
  • Whisper White 3″ x 3″ (7.6 x 7.6 cm) Envelopes (145829)
  • Whisper White 8-1/2″ x 11″ Cardstock (100730)
  • Whisper White 8-1/2″ x 11″ Thick Cardstock (140272)
  • Whisper White Medium Envelopes (107301)

Our new Basic White products will become available to purchase as soon as we have them in stock. This means that some Whisper White and Basic White products may be available at the same time. Additionally, due to the nature of sourcing, some Basic White products may not be available before the Whisper White products sell out. Please know that we are working on getting these products available to you as fast as possible.

Stampin’ Up! Zany Zebras Birthday

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone’s weekend going? I’m heading into work again today. I was hoping to have the day off, but they put me on the schedule. It’s a short day at the dog bakery though, I don’t go in until noon and I’m done by 5pm.

For today’s card a co-worker asked me to make her nieces daughter a 1st birthday card. It took me a bit to come up with something, since I thought I didn’t have anything appropriate for a 1 year old. Then I remembered and here’s what I came up with.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Zany Zebras Cling Stamp Set for my card along with a sneak peek inside of a new set coming in the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog.

I started by cutting a panel of Whisper White cardstock using the largest Stitched Triangle Dies. I stamped the adorable little zebra image from the Zany Zebras stamp set in Magenta Madness Ink on the bottom of the triangle. I added a little color to her stripes, mane and tail using my Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends Markers. I then embossed the triangle using the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder. From that same panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the zebra image again in Magenta Madness Ink and I stamped the sentiment from the Zany Zebras stamp set in Magenta Madness Ink. I used some washi tape to cover the happy part of the sentiment so I would just get the birthday. I cut the sentiment out using the smallest die from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies and I fussy cut the zebra using my Paper Snips, not cutting the mane or the tail. I added some color to her stripes using my Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I adhered the fussy cut zebra on top of the stamped zebra on the triangle using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the triangle to a Whisper White card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I cut all the letters and the #1 from a panel of Rainbow Glimmer Paper, which I adhered to a Foam Adhesive Sheet, using the Playful Alphabets Dies.

I cut 3 of the small balloons out using the Happy Dies one in Granny Apple Green, one in Highland Heather and one in Mango Melody. I embossed the Granny Apple Green and Highland Heather balloons using the Wrapped In Texture Embossing Folder. I cut the 3 strings and 3 bows from a panel of Magenta Madness cardstock using the Happy Dies. I adhered the strings to the back of the balloons using Glue Dots and the bows to the bottom of the balloons using a tiny amount of Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the balloons to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the #1 to the Mango Melody balloon. I adhered the letters to the card front the way I wanted them and adhered the die cut birthday under the happy using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added some Artistry Blooms Adhesive-Backed Sequins to the card front. I adhered the card front to a Granny Apple Green mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to a Magenta Madness card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped a sentiment from a new set coming in the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog, the Stampin’ Up! Many Messages Cling Stamp Set. This is 1 large stamp with 19 sentiments on it. I used my Stamparatus to get just the one sentiment centered on a panel of Whisper White Cardstock. I used my Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Write Marker to ink up just the sentiment I wanted to use. I stamped the zebra image from the Zany Zebras stamp set to the side of the sentiment in Magenta Madness Ink and I stamped the party hat from the Zany Zebras stamp set in Magenta Madness Ink on the opposite side. I added color to the strips on the zebra and the pom-pom on the hat using my Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends Markers. I colored the dots on the hat in using my Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Write Marker. I stamped the grass image from the Zany Zebras stamp set under the zebra in Granny Apple Green Ink. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Granny Apple Green mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Magenta Madness card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the zebra image from the Zany Zebras stamp set in Magenta Madness Ink on the envelope front. I stamped the grass image from the Zany Zebras stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink below the zebra. I added some color to the zebras stripes, mane and tail using my Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of Artistry Blooms 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!!
