Stampin’ Up! Snailed It

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends. How has your weekend started off? I have off today, YAY!! I’ll be doing a lot of cleaning at home though. We’re finally done with all the work in my house, so it’s time to start putting things back together. Yesterday was very productive for me. I filled multiple bags and boxes for good will with coats and clothes and many other items. I figured now is the best time to really clean things out since we had to move and empty so many things.

For today, I played with a set that I kind of pushed to the side. I really like it too, so I don’t know why I haven’t used it. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Snailed It Suite for my card today.

I started by adhering a panel of the Snail Mail Designer Series Paper to a Real Red card base using Stampin’ Seal. From a panel of Blushing Bride cardstock I cut multiple envelopes using the Snail Dies. I adhered them to a Blushing Bride card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and cut the panel down to 3 5/8″ X 4 7/8″.

I adhered a panel of the Snail Mail DSP to a Real Red mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I cut a panel of Basic White cardstock using the stamp die from the Snail Dies. I embossed a panel of Real Red card stock using the Meadow Moments Embossing Folder and adhered it to the Basic White stamp die using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the mushroom image from the Stampin’ Up! Snailed It Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image in using my Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight, Pool Party and Real Red Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image out using the Snail Die and adhered it to the Real Red panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I cut a small panel of Real Red cardstock using the stitched rectangle from the Snail Dies. I stamped the sentiment from the Snailed It stamp set in Versamark Ink on the bottom of the rectangle. I immediately sprinkled it with my White Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I adhered it under the artwork using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the card front to the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Resin Hearts to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Happy Thoughts Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink in the center of a panel of the Snail Mail DSP. I stamped the mushroom image on a panel of Basic White cardstock in Tuxedo Black Ink and colored it using my Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight, Pool Party and Real Red Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image out using my Snail Dies and adhered it to the bottom of the panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the DSP panel to a Bermuda Bay mat using Stampin’ Seal and the to the inside of the Real Red card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the mushroom image from the Snailed It stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and colored it in using my Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight, Pool Party and Real Red Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of the Snail Mail 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! Hydrangea Haven Easter

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone’s weekend? We’re having a beautiful spring weekend here.

I have an Easter card for you today using the Floral Gallery Dies, the Stampin’ Up! Hydrangea Haven Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips Photopolymer Stamp Set. Here is my card for today.

My design is from Try Stampin’ On Tuesday Challenge #497.

I started by adhering a panel of the Hydrangea Hill Designer Series Paper to a Highland Heather card base using Stampin’ Seal.

I embossed a panel of Basic White cardstock and 2 strips of Gorgeous Grape cardstock using the Meadow Moments Embossing Folder. I cut the sentiment out of a panel of Gorgeous Grape cardstock using the Floral Gallery Dies. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Gorgeous Grape mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the sentiment to the Basic White panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the 2 strips of Gorgeous Grape cardstock to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I made a small bow using the Gorgeous Grape 3/8″ Sheer Ribbon and adhered it to the sentiment using Glue Dots.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Gorgeous Grape Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the small flower image from the Hydrangea Haven stamp set in Gorgeous Grape Ink in the 2 corners of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Gorgeous Grape mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Highland Heather card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the small flower image from the Hydrangea Haven stamp set across the bottom of the envelope front in Gorgeous Grape Ink. I adhered a panel of the Hydrangea Hill 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! CAS Sweet Ice Cream Thank You

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone’s weekend going? I have to go into work today, but only for a couple hours to close out the end of the month. Hard to believe that January is gone already.

For today’s card I made another clean and simple card using the Stampin’ Up! Sweet Ice Cream Photopolymer Stamp Set. Here’s my card for today.

My colors and design are from my Upline, Jaimie Babarczy. These were the colors and sketch she gave us to work from this week. I have to admit, I did have a little trouble putting the colors and sketch together. I had to think outside the box a bit.

I started by stamping the sentiment from the Sweet Ice Cream stamp set first in Pool Party Ink, then Real Red Ink and last in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White card front. I used my Stamparatus to like everything up perfectly.

I embossed the panel using my Subtle 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the card front to a Basic White mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and then adhered it to a Pool Party card base using Stampin’ Seal.

I embossed a thin strip of Basic White cardstock using the Meadow Moments Embossing Folder and cut it into a banner using my Paper Snips. I adhered the banner to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I colored 2 of the Pearl Basic Jewels using my Pool Party and Real Red Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the 2 colored pearls and a Matte Black Dot next to the coordinating color stamped sentiments.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Sweet Ice Cream stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the splatter image from the Sweet Ice Cream stamp set in Pool Party and Real Red Ink next to the sentiment. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Pool Party mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Pool Party card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the splatter image from the Sweet Ice Cream stamp set on 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. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Oval Occasions Birthday

Good Sunday morning my fellow stampers. How is everyone’s weekend going? Yesterday was a busier day than I expected at work. Now today I’m off to the dog boutique bakery. Hopefully we’ll get a lot of visits from our puppy friends.

For today’s card I CASED a card right from the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog from page 65 using the Stampin’ Up! Oval Occasions Bundle. I don’t usually do that, but I thought the card was just so adorable. Here’s my card for today.

Once again I used my Uplines color combo for my card for the challenge she is doing this week.

I started by punching a bunch of scalloped ovals using the new Double Oval Punch from a panel of Night of Navy cardstock. I embossed a panel of Seaside Spray cardstock using the Meadow Moments Embossing Folder and cut the panel into 1 1/2″ strips. I punched 4 embossed ovals out using the Double Oval Punch.

I arranged the scalloped ovals on a panel of Seaside Spray 2019-2021 In-Color 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper, some are hanging off the paper. I adhered them using Multipurpose Liquid Glue so I had a little wiggle room to move them around. Once they were all adhered, I trimmed the panel down to a 3 7/8″ X 5 1/8″ panel. I adhered the embossed Seaside Spray ovals on top of a few of the Night of Navy scalloped ovals using Stampin’ Dimensionals and trimmed them using my Paper Snips. I adhered the panel to a Basic White mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to a Seaside Spray card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Oval Occasions Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I stamped the floral image from the Oval Occasions stamp set below the sentiment and colored it in using my Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers and my Crushed Curry Stampin’ Write Marker. I cut the image out using the Double Oval Punch. I adhered a piece of the Seaside Spray 1/4″ Metallic Ribbon to the scallop oval using Stampin’ Seal and adhered the sentiment on top of the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Crushed Curry Playing With Patterns Resin Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Oval Occasions stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the floral image from the Oval Occasions stamp set below the sentiment in Tuxedo Black Ink and colored it in using my Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers and Crushed Curry Stampin’ Write Marker. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Night of Navy mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Seaside Spray card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the floral image from the Oval Occasions stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and colored it in using my Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers and my Crushed Curry Stampin’ Write Marker. I adhered a panel of the 2019-2021 In-Color 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! A Touch Of Ink Sneak Peek CAS

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. Happy New Year’s Eve Eve. Well, it’s almost time to say good bye to 2020. I have to admit, I’m not going to miss this year. There were a few highlights for me, one was after 14 years we finally went on a family vacation to Disney. I’m hoping 2021 will be a healthy year for all and we can get past this Covid and go back to our ‘normal’ lives. How about you, what are you all hoping for?

For today’s card I went out of my comfort zone a little bit, every once in a while I like to do that. Everyone knows I love my colors. Sometimes I use 2 or 3 and other times I used 5 or 6. Well, not today. Today is Black and White. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! A Touch of Ink Photopolymer Stamp Set for my card today. This set is a free Sale-A-Bration item with a qualifying purchase. I also used the True Love Designer Series Paper, but didn’t add color this time.

I started by embossing a panel of Whisper White cardstock using the Meadow Moments Embossing Folder. I adhered a panel of the True Love DSP to the right side of the embossed panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the card front to a Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the humming bird, butterfly and sentiment from the A Touch of Ink stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I cut the images out using the Stitched Rectangle Dies.

I adhered the die cut images to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Matte Black Dots to the artwork.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Happiest of Birthdays Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel. I adhered 2 strips of the True Love DSP to either side of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered The Whisper White panel to a Basic Black mat using Stampin’ Seal 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 butterfly and humming bird images from the A Touch of Ink stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of True Love DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today, I hope you liked my card. The items to make this card will be available January 5, 2021 from the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog and the Sale-A-Bration Catalog. 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! Monogram Messages for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s week? Are you ready for the weekend. I’m working tomorrow, but Sunday we have our ‘In Person, Virtually’ team meeting. Even virtually I love getting together with everyone and stamping. We have such a great team and the best team leader you’d ever want.

Today’s card I made on my Facebook Live video on Wednesday. If you were able to join me or watched the replay, thank you very much. If you’d like to watch my video and stamp along, the measurements are below along with the links to my Facebook page and my YouTube channel. Here’s my card that I made.

I pulled out a couple set from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog for my card today. The Stampin’ Up! Monogram Messages Cling Stamp Set and the Stampin’ Up! Happiest of Birthdays Cling Stamp Set.

I stamped the ‘C’ from the Monogram Messages stamp set in Versamark Ink on a small panel of Whisper White cardstock. I immediately sprinkled it with my Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I stamped the sentiment from the Monogram Messages stamp set right next to the ‘C’ in Gorgeous Grape Ink.

I stamped the sprig image from the Monogram Messages stamp set in Highland Heather Ink next to the ‘C’. I stamped the leaf image from the Monogram Messages stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink next to the sprig. I stamped the flower image from the Monogram Messages stamp set in Gorgeous Grape Ink on a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock and fussy cut it using my Paper Snips. I adhered the flower to the ‘C’ using a Glue Dot. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Silver Foil mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the front of a small Pear Pizzazz card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the artwork.

I embossed a small panel of Highland Heather cardstock using the Meadow Moments Embossing Folder and adhered it to the Soft Seafoam card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I adhered a panel of the Feels Like Frost 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to the inside of the Soft Seafoam card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I stamped the sentiment from the Happiest of Birthdays stamp set in Gorgeous Grape Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel. I stamped the leaf image from the Monogram Messages stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on either side of the sentiment. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Highland Heather mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Pear Pizzazz card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the Pear Pizzazz card base to the inside of the Soft Seafoam card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the sprig image from the Monogram Messages stamp set in Highland Heather Ink and the leaf image in Pear Pizzazz Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of Feels Like Frost 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 measurements are below if you’d like to stamp along while watching the video. You can watch my video on my Facebook page Here

Stampin’ Up! Autumn Gather Together

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone doing today? Does anyone have plans this weekend? I’m working today, but I have off tomorrow. The next 2 weeks are going to be work crazy for me, so I’m looking forward to tomorrow. I had to take my fur baby to the vet yesterday, annual check up. I got detoured all around to get there because of road work. I turned out to be such a gorgeous ride. It seems like over night the trees have all turned to yellows, oranges and reds. Such a beautiful time of year, until they all start falling and we have to start raking them all up. Of course my big tree in front of my house doesn’t even start to turn until November. There have been years that my husband decorates for Christmas with the leaves still on the tree.

Onto the reason you are here. Because of my drive yesterday I was very inspired. I have a fall card for you today using multiple bundles/sets from the August-December 2020 Mini Catalog. Here’s my card for today.

My colors are inspired by Global Design Project #261. Here are their colors.

I played along with Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge #349. Here is their Inspiration board.

I also played along with Always Fun Challenge #183. Their Theme is ‘Pumpkins’.

The sketch is from Mojo Monday #547.

I started by adhering a panel of Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper to a Mint Macaron card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered a panel of Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP to a Mint Macaron mat using Stampin’ Seal and adhered it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On a small panel of Mint Macaron cardstock I stamped the sentiment from Stampin’ Up! Autumn Goodness Photopolymer Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink and made it into a banner using my Banner Triple Punch. I adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I embossed a panel of the copper Brushed Metallic Paper using my Meadow Moments Embossing Folder and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. On a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the pumpkin images from the Stampin’ Up! Gather Together Photopolymer Stamp Set in Cajun Craze Ink and colored them in using my Mint Macaron, Pumpkin Pie and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the images out using my Gathered Leaves Dies. On the same panel of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the leaf images from the Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Autumn Photopolymer Stamp Set in Cajun Craze and Pumpkin Pie Inks, 3 times each. The fill images I stamped in the same colors stamping off once. I punched the leaves out using my Autumn Punch Pack. Using my Layering Circle Dies, I cut the 4th largest circle out of a small panel of Very Vanilla cardstock and the 4th largest scalloped circle out of a panel of Mint Macaron cardstock. On the Very Vanilla circle I stamped the wheat image from the Gather Together stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink twice. I adhered the Very Vanilla circle to the Mint Macaron scalloped circle using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the pumpkins to the circle using Glue Dots and Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the leaves under the pumpkins using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and Glue Dots.

On the inside I stamped the pumpkin images from the Gather Together stamp set in Cajun Craze Ink on the bottom of a Very Vanilla panel using the masking technique and colored them in using my Mint Macaron, Pumpkin Pie and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the wheat image from the Gather Together stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink by the pumpkins. I stamped the leaf image from the Beautiful Autumn stamp set in Pumpkin Pie Ink on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the sentiment from the Autumn Goodness stamp set in Early Espresso Ink in the center of the panel. I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Cajun Craze mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Mint Macaron card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope. I stamped the pumpkin images from the Gather Together stamp set in Cajun Craze Ink on the envelope front and colored them in using my Mint Macaron, Pumpkin Pie and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the wheat image from the Gather Together stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink by the pumpkins.

I adhered a panel of Gilded Autumn Specialty 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! 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.

Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Wishes for Fun Fold Friday

Goof Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday.  How was everyone’s week?  Does anyone have plans for the weekend?  I’m working tomorrow and Sunday dropping my daughter off for the week so she can house and animal sit while my niece is away.  She does this every year and it’s so hard since her and I do almost everything together.

For today I made a floating card for you.  I haven’t done one of these in a while and I forgot how much I like them.  Here’s my card for today.

My inspiration came from the Double D Challenge.  Here is their inspiration.

My colors are from the Paper Players Color Challenge #503.  As soon as I saw these colors I thought butterflies.  Here are their colors.

I started by scoring and cutting a Pool Party card base.  I cut the front panel, from the fold, at the 2 1/2″ mark.  I cut the bottom portion that I cut off to a 1 1/2″ panel.  I embossed 2 panels of Pool Party card stock using the Meadow Moments Embossing Folder.  Using Stampin’ Seal, I adhered a Window Sheet to the 1 1/2″ panel about 1/4″ in.  I lined the bottom of the panel up with the bottom of the back of the card base and adhered the top of the Window Sheet to the top of the card base using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered the 2 embossed panels over the top and the bottom panels of the Window Sheet using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Using the Butterfly Beauty Dies, I cut 1 from a panel of Night of Navy cardstock and 1 from a panel of Mango Melody cardstock.  I also cut just the top 2 butterflies out of a panel of Melon Mambo cardstock.  I adhered the Night of Navy die to the top of the Mango Melody die using tiny amounts of Multipurpose Liquid Glue just in the larger areas.  I adhered the Melon Mambo inner pieces of the butterflies to the back of one  butterfly and to the front of the other using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the butterflies to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals only on the top and bottom.  I didn’t want to use any on the center butterfly since I didn’t want them to show through the Window Sheet.

On a strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Wishes Cling Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink.  I cut both ends of the strip into a banner using my Banner Triple Punch.  I adhered a piece of 1/8″ Night of Navy Ribbon from the Playing With Patterns Ribbon Combo Pack to the butterflies using Glue Dots.  I adhered the sentiment over the ribbon using Stampn’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Butterfly Wishes stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the larger butterfly from the Butterfly Wishes stamp set in Mango Melody Ink on one side of the sentiment and the medium butterfly from the Butterfly Wishes stamp set in Melon Mambo Ink on the other side.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the top of a Pool Party mat using Stampin’ Seal.  I stamped the small butterfly from the Butterfly Wishes stamp set in Night of Navy in on a smaller panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I adhered the smaller panel to the bottom of the Pool Party mat using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered the matted panels 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 larger butterfly from the Butterfly Wishes stamp set in Mango Melody Ink, the medium butterfly in Melon Mambo and the small butterfly in Night of Navy Ink on the envelope front and flap.

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