Stampin’ Up! Ornate Hello

Good Saturday morning my fellow stampers.  Does anyone have any plans for this weekend?  Maybe some gardening, spring cleaning, crafting, binge watching?  I’ll be working today, but I do have off tomorrow.  I’m hoping to start re-organizing my craft area to get ready for some of the new things that will be coming in the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.  We got a sneak peek at it this week, I can’t wait till I can place my order.  That’s one of the best parts of being a demonstrator, you get to order early.  If anyone is interested in joining our team, drop me a line and I would be happy to help you sign up.

For today I have one more card using the Ornate Garden Suite.  This was another one I was playing around with doing for my video last Saturday, but decided on a different one.  I made it to use for an Anniversary, but it could easily be used for a birthday too.  Here’s my card for today.

I started by coloring a panel of the Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper using my Light Mint Macaron, Light Night of Navy, Light Pineapple Punch and Light So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers.  One of the great things about 2 of the designs from this DSP pack is that you can color them any colors and any way you want.

Using the beautiful Ornate Borders Dies, I cut a panel of Night of Navy cardstock using the flower border.  I adhered the colored DSP to the edge of the die cut border using Snail and then adhered it to a So Saffron card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I added 3 Pearl Basic Jewels in the center of the die cut flowers down the side.  I love the way the Night of Navy looks on top of the So Saffron.

To pick up the gold from the DSP, using the Ornate Layers Dies, I cut a Gold Foil Sheet using the small frame.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips Photopolymer Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink on a small panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I stamped the small flower image from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Style Cling Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink above and below the sentiment.  I colored the images in using my Light Mint Macaron and Light Pineapple Punch Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the Gold Foil frame using Stampin’ Dimensionals and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Well Said Cling Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel .  I stamped the large floral image from the Ornate Style stamp set in So Saffron Ink over the sentiment, stamping off once.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Night of Navy mat using Snail and then to the inside of the So Saffron card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the small flower image from the Ornate Style stamp set across the bottom of the envelope front in Soft Suede Ink.  I colored the images in using my Light Mint Macaron and Light Pineapple Punch Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of the Ornate Garden Specialty DSP, which I had colored using my Light Mint Macaron, Light Night of Navy, Light Pineapple Punch and Light So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers,  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! Ornate From All Of Us for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday.  How was everyone’s week?

Today’s card is one that I demonstrated on our Facebook Live Event last Saturday.  Here is the link if you’d like to watch it.  https://creativestampingdesigns.com/…/stampin-up-ornate-ho…/    These cards are the same, but just a little different.  One I made as a book fold and the other a tent fold.  I have both cards here that I  will explain.  The card cuts and products used are below for both cards.  Here are my cards.

With both cards I started by lightly adhering the Early Espresso card front to the Early Espresso card base and the Old Olive card front to the Old Olive card base using a tiny bit of Snail right in the middle.  I cut the Early Espresso card using the Layering Ovals Dies and the Old Olive card using the Stitched Rectangle Dies.  I embossed both card fronts using my Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the Early Espresso card front to the Early Espresso card base and the Old Olive card front to the Old Olive card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Using my Layering Ovals Dies, I cut a panel of Blushing Bride cardstock using the scalloped oval that was larger that the cut oval.  I cut the center of the oval the same size as the  one cut through the card front.  I adhered the frame to the Early Espresso card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I wrapped a piece of Old Olive Ornate Garden 1/4″ Ribbon around the right side of the oval and tied a bow.  On a thin piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Thanks Photopolymer Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink.  I adhered the sentiment to a Blushing Bride mat using Snail and then to the Early Espresso card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a couple Gilded Gems to the card front.

Using my Ornate Layers Dies, I cut a panel of Terracotta Tile cardstock using the frame that was larger than the rectangle on the Old Olive card front.  I cut the center of the Terracotta Tile frame using the same size Stitched Rectangle Die that I used to cut through the card front.

I adhered the frame to the Old Olive card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I added a Gilded Gem to the card front.

For the inner card I adhered a panel of Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper to a Blushing Bride card base using Snail.  I adhered the inner card inside the Early Espresso card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue making sure it was centered and opened to the right (opposite of the Early Espresso card).   It will look like photo below.

I added another Gilded Gem to one of the flowers you can see through the card front.

For the inner card I adhered a panel of the Ornate Garden Specialty DSP to a Terracotta Tile card base using Snail.  I adhered the inner card to the inside of the Old Olive card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue making sure it was centered and opened to the right (opposite of a book fold card).  I stamped the sentiment from the Ornate Thanks stamp set in Terracotta Tile Ink on a strip of Whisper White cardstock.  I adhered the sentiment to an Old Olive mat using Snail.  I adhered the matted sentiment to the inner card front using Glue Dots, lining is up through the rectangle card front.  I tied a small bow from the Terracotta Tile Ornate Garden 1/4″ Ribbon and adhered it with a Glue Dot.  I added a couple Gilded Gems to the inner card front and sentiment.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips Photopolymer Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  Using the Ornate Borders Dies, I cut out the flourish on either side of the sentiment.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the smaller Blushing Bride card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  There were 2 heart shapes that cut out of each side from the flourish die, so I added them in the top inside corners of the small and large card bases using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Terracotta Tile Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the daisy image from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Style Cling Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink on the bottom of the panel.  I colored the images in using my Light Mango Melody and Light Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the small Terracotta Tile card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the scroll image from the Ornate Style stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the 4 corners of the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of the Ornate Garden Specialty DSP to the envelope flap.

To finish my 2nd card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the daisy image from the Ornate Style stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the bottom of the envelope front 3 times.  I colored the images in using my Light Mango Melody and Light Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of the Ornate Garden Specialty DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my cards and will give it a try.  If you want to watch the video on the Old Olive card, just click the link above.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Ornate Thanks Ever So Much

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends.  How has everyone’s week started off?  All good here.  The good thing about being home more is I seem to be getting more things around the house done along with having extra time to craft and watch my team members Facebook Live videos along with some others.  I really enjoy watching everyone’s videos.  Eventually I am going to figure out a schedule and start doing a Facebook Live myself.  Tomorrow we should be getting the list of items that will be retiring from the January-June 2020 Mini Catalog and the Annual Catalog.  I will share it with you as soon as I can.

I have another card for you today using the Ornate Garden Suite.  Here’s my card for today.

I started by adhering a panel of Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper to an Old Olive Mat using Snail.  I adhered the matted DSP to a Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered 3 panels of Ornate Garden Specialty DSP to 3 Old Olive mats using Snail. I adhered the 3 matted panel to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Thanks Photopolymer Stamp Set in Old Olive Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using my Ornate Layers Dies and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added 2 Gilded Gems to the framed sentiment.

On the inside I stamped the small flower image from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Style Cling Stamp Set in Old Olive Ink on the 4 corners of a Whisper White panel.  I colored the flowers in using my Light Mango Melody, Light Old Olive and Dark Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I didn’t add a sentiment so that I could write my own.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to an Old Olive mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I adhered a strip of the Ornate Garden Specialty DSP to the bottom front of the envelope and a panel 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! Ornate My Friend

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Are you ready for another week of working from home and social distancing?   I’m ready for this to all be over.  I’m ready to socialize and spend time with friends and family sitting together again.  It’s been pretty cool here in NJ, so wearing the mask hasn’t been too bad. Once it starts getting warm though, I will not be going out if we still have to wear them.

Most of my cards this week are using the Ornate Garden Suite.  Last week I was trying to decide which design I wanted to use for my video on Saturday so I made a few extra.  Here’s my card for today.

I played along with the Joy of Sets Tick Tac Toe April 2020 Challenge #JOSTTT016.  I went right across the top and down the left side.  Here are their sets.

I started by embossing a Terracotta Tile card front using the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder. 

Using my Ornate Borders Dies, I cut both sides of a Whisper White panel using the thinnest die.  I adhered a panel of Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper to the die cut Whisper White panel using Snail then I adhered it to the embossed card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. 

On a small Whisper White panel I stamped the daisy image from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Style Cling Stamp Set twice in Early Espresso Ink. I colored the images in using my Light Mango Melody and Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the image out using my Stitched So Sweetly Dies making sure to leave room at the top for a sentiment.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Thanks Photopolymer Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink.  I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the card front to a Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I added a few Gilded Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Strong & Beautiful Cling Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the daisy image from the Ornate Style stamp set twice on the bottom of the panel in Early Espresso Ink and colored the image in using my Light Mango Melody and Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Terracotta Tile mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the daisy image from the Ornate Style stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the bottom front of the envelope 3 times.  I colored the images in using my Light Mango Melody and Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of the Ornate Garden 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! Ornate Horizontal Thanks

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends.  How is your weekend going?  I had off all day yesterday, but I have to go in today to work.  Were any of you able to watch our Ornate Garden Facebook Live Event yesterday?  We had so much fun creating the cards.  If you were able to watch, I appreciate you,  if you weren’t able to watch, you can still go over and watch all the replays.  I think we gave everyone a lot of inspiration.

Here is one of the cards I made yesterday on my Facebook Live.  If you’d like to watch the video, here is the link https://www.facebook.com/515622098864089/videos/240690183743889/

The colors in my card were from Inspire. Create Color Challenge #067.  Here is their color pallet.

I also joined in with the Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #491.  Here is their theme.

I started by coloring a panel of Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper using my Blackberry Bliss, Old Olive Pool Party and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends Markers.

Using the Ornate Borders Dies, I cut the edge of a Blackberry Bliss card front.  Isn’t that die cut just beautiful.  I adhered the colored panel of Ornate Garden Specialty DSP to the Blackberry Bliss card front using Snail.  I wrapped a piece of the Old Olive 1/4″ Ornate Ribbon around the card front and tied a knot.  I added a Glue Dot under the knot to hold it in place.  I adhered the card front to a Pool Party card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Using my Ornate Layers Dies I cut a Gold Foil Sheet using one of the smaller frames.  On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock, which i cut using the smallest Stitched Rectangle Die, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Thanks Photopolymer Stamp Set in Blackberry Bliss Ink.  I adhered the sentiment to the Gold Foil frame using Snail and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Pearl Basic Jewels, which i colored using my Dark Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends Marker, to the center of the cut flowers.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Ornate Thanks stamp set in Blackberry Bliss Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the small flower image from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Style Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the 4 corners of the panel.  I colored the images in using my Old Olive, Pool Party and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Blackberry Bliss mat using Snail and then 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 small flower image from the Ornate Style stamps set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the bottom front of the envelope.  I colored the images in using my Old Olive, Pool Party and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a colored panel of the Ornate Garden 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! Ornate Smile Daisy Lane for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday.  How was everyone’s week?  Is anyone planning anything for the weekend?  I’m working a partial day tomorrow and getting my spring cleaning done.

For today’s card I made a fold I haven’t done in a while and forgot how much I like it.  I do have detailed pictures and instructions for you since it is a little hard to explain.  Here’s today’s card.

I’ve combined the Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper with the Stampin’ Up! Daisy Lane Cling Stamp Set for my card.  Click HERE for a  template which I got from Lisa Curcio, to do the braid on the edge.

I lined the template up with the edge of my card and cut carefully on the lines all the way down the edge so it looks like photo above.  When you open your card base it looks like the 2nd picture above.

Starting at the bottom, you want to fold down the bottom  cut piece and carefully cut it off using your Paper Snips as shown above and set it aside (you will need it later).  Fold the next cut piece down and tuck it behind the point below it.  Continue doing this all the way to the top cut piece.

When you finish folding and tucking all the pieces down it will look like the 1st picture above.  Take the small piece that you cut off and adhere it to the top of the card, using Glue Dots, lining it up and tucking it under the top point so it looks like the middle photo above.  When you fold your card back in half it will look like the end photo.

I adhered a panel of the Ornate Garden Specialty DSP to the card front using Snail.  On a small panel of Whisper White card stock I stamped the stem image from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Old Olive Ink.  I stamped the sentiment from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Early Espresso Ink across the stem.  I cut the image out using my Rectangle Stitched Dies.

On a small piece of Vellum card stock I stamped the medium daisy image from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Terracotta Tile Ink twice.  I cut the images out using the Medium Daisy Punch.  I adhered the 2 cut daisies together using a Glue dot and adhered it to the stem image using a Glue Dot.  I added a Perennial Essence Floral Center to the daisy.  I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I tied a small bow made from the Terracotta Tile 1/4″ Ornate Garden Ribbon and adhered it to the bottom of the stem using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Early Espresso Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the stem image from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Old Olive Ink, stamping off once, on the side of the panel.  I stamped the small daisy image from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Terracotta Tile Ink, stamping off once, to the top of the stem.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Terracotta Tile mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Old Olive card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the stem image from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Old Olive Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped the small daisy image from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Terracotta Tile Ink on the top of the stem.  I adhered a panel of the Ornate Garden 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! Ornate Style Garden

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends and Happy April Fools Day!!  How is everyone doing today?  Today is the day we’ve been waiting for.  The Ornate Garden Suite is available starting today!! YAY!!

For today’s card I decided to show off some of the products from the suite.  Ok, my whole card is made with products from the suite.  Here’s today’s card.

My design is from Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #362.  Here is their sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of the gorgeous Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper to a Mint Macaron mat using Snail.  I adhered the matted DSP to a Terracotta Tile card base using Snail.  I cut the edge of a small Terracotta Tile panel using the Ornate Borders Dies and then embossed it using the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder.

I adhered the embossed panel to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  On a small Whisper White panel I stamped the daisy image from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Style Cling Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink.  I cut the image out using the Stitched Rectangle Dies.  I colored the image in using my Mint Macaron and Light Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the artwork to the embossed panel using Stampn’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Mint Macaron cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Thanks Photopolymer Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink.  I cut the image out using my Stitched Rectangle Dies.  There isn’t a die long enough for the sentiment so I had to make my own.  I cut the sentiment out only going part way through using my die cutting machine.  I then moved the die over matching up the stitches and cut from the other side making sure to only go part way through again.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Gilded Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Ornate Thanks stamp set in Early Espresso Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the daisy from the Ornate Style stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the bottom of the panel and colored it in using my Mint Macaron and Light Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the scroll image from the Ornate Style stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the  top corner of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Mint Macaron mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Terracotta Tile card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the daisy image from the Ornate Style stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the bottom front of the envelope and colored it in using my Mint Macaron and Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the scroll from the Ornate Style stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the top corner of the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of Ornate Garden 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!!
