Stampin’ Up! Sweet As A Peach Birthday for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends! Welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. I hope everyone is doing well today. If you are hopping over from Akiko Sudano’s blog, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we have a Color Challenge. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects. Here is my card using this weeks Colors.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Sweet As A Peach Bundle along with the You’re A Peach Designer Series Paper for my card today.

These are our colors for this week.

My design is from Sunday Stamps Getting Sketchy #262.

I started by adhering a panel of You’re A Peach DSP to a Balmy Blue card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I cut 2 panels of You’re A Peach DSP using the Ornate Layers Dies. I cut the 2 panels in half and adhered them to a Calypso Coral mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. This was how I was able to make the strips long enough for my card front. I adhered the 2 layered panel to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the stem/leaf image from the Stampin’ Up! Sweet As A Peach Photopolymer Stamp Set in Pear Pizzazz Ink. I stamped the trio of peach image from the Sweet As A Peach stamp set on the stem image in Pale Papaya Ink, sponged with my Dauber in Calypso Coral Ink. I cut the image out using my Hippo & Friends Dies. I stamped the trio peach image from the Sweet As A Peach stamp set in Pale Papaya Ink, sponged with Calypso Coral Ink, on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I cut the peach trio out using my Peach Dies. I cut 2 of the leaf dies from the Peach Dies out of a panel of Pear Pizzazz cardstock. I adhered the leaves to the back of 2 of the die cut peaches using a Glue Dot then adhered them to the artwork using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the artwork to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from Sweet As A Peach stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink. I adhered the sentiment to a Calypso Coral mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Mango Melody Artistry Blooms Adhesive-Backed Sequins to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the stem/leaf image from the Sweet As A Peach stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on the top of a Basic White panel. I stamped the peach trio image from the Sweet As A Peach stamp set in Pale Papaya Ink, sponged with Calypso Coral Ink, on the stems. I stamped the sentiments from the Sweet As A Peach stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on the Basic White panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Pear Pizzazz mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Balmy Blue card base using Stampin’ Seal. I added a couple Mango Melody Artistry Blooms Adhesive- Backed Sequins to the Basic White panel.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the large peach image from the Sweet As A Peach stamp set in Pale Papaya Ink, sponged with Calypso Coral Ink, on the envelope front. I stamped the stem/leaves in Pear Pizzazz Ink on the peach. I adhered a panel of You’re A Peach DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Positive Thoughts Get Well

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. We’re halfway through the week already and on our way to the weekend. It’s really turned to summer here this week and I’m loving it.

For today I used an older set from the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog that carried over. I used the Stampin’ Up! Positive Thoughts Cling Stamp Set for my card along with the new Pattern Party Host Designer Series Paper. This DSP can be earned with Stampin’ Rewards from placing an order of $150 or more. I used a pretty simple layout that’s really easy to recreate. Here’s my card for today.

My design and colors are from my Team Challenge that my upline Jaimie gives us each week.

I started by adhering a panel of the Pattern Party DSP to a Granny Apple Green card base using Stampin’ Seal.

I embossed a panel of Petal Pink cardstock using the new Pretty Flowers Embossing Folder and adhered it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Positive Thoughts stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock and cut it out using my Ornate Layers Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Balmy Blue cardstock I stamped the butterfly image from the Positive Thoughts stamp set in Soft Suede Ink and cut them out using my Nature’s Thoughts Dies. I adhered the butterflies to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I colored a few Pearl Basic Jewels using my Balmy Blue Stampin’ Blends Markers and adhered them to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Positive Thoughts stamp set in Soft Suede Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I adhered the tiny Balmy Blue butterfly I had cut using the Nature’s Thoughts Dies, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Petal Pink mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Granny Apple Green card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I adhered a strip of Pattern Party DSP to the front of a Basic White Medium 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! Prized Peony Mother’s Day CAS

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone’s weekend going? Hope you are doing some fun things, hiking, gardening or maybe just relaxing. I’ll be at work all day today, but yesterday I had a very productive day. I did a little of everything, inside and out. I’m still trying to get my house back in order since all the workers are done. That’s not going to happen in 1 or 2 days though. I was able to spend a little time outside cutting the grass and gardening a little.

For today’s card I used a set that is going to be carrying over to the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog. The Stampin’ Up! Prized Peony Cling Stamp Set and the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips Photopolymer Stamp Set. Here’s my card for today.

My design is from The Spot Challenge #158.

I started by adhering a panel of the Peony Garden Designer Series Paper to a Petal Pink card base using Stampin’ Seal. I cut a panel of Petal Pink cardstock using the Ornate Layers Dies. I stamped the smallest peony from the Prized Peony stamp set in Petal Pink Ink and adhered the die cut to my card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Gray Granite Ink. I adhered the strip to a Gray Granite mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I tied a small bow using the 5/8″ Petal Pink Organdy Striped Ribbon and adhered it to the sentiment using a Glue Dot. I added a few Elegant Faceted Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Gray Granite Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the small peony from the Prized Peony stamp set on either side of the sentiment in Petal Pink Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Gray Granite mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Petal Pink card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the small peony from the Prized Peony stamp set in Petal Pink Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the Peony Garden 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! Christmas Means More Elf

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends. How has everyone’s week started off? I’ve got a busy couple days with work then I start my yearly Christmas baking on Wednesday night. Perfect time to be baking since we are expecting a pretty big snow storm. Last I heard they are predicting 12″-18″ of snow, but I always wait since they are seldom correct. Guess we’ll have a white Christmas this year. I normally have off today, but I felt bad that I couldn’t work this Thursday or Friday and I know how busy the dog bakery is right now, so I told them I could work today.

I have one final super fun Christmas card for you today. All my cards have now been mailed and I think I’m done for the season. I’ve been wanting to make this one and I have someone special in mind that I want to send it to. I forgot how much fun these cards are to make. Here’s my final Christmas card for the season (I hope).

I used the retiring Stampin’ Up! Christmas Means More Photopolymer Stamp Set for the inside of my card. The outside is all cut and punched pieces. I’ve seen a card similar made by Rachel Tessman, I added my own twist to it.

I started by embossing a Granny Apple Green card front using the Tasteful Textiles 3D Embossing Folder. I cut a panel of the Brushed Metallic cardstock using the Ornate Layers Dies. I sponged the edges of a panel of Granny Apple Green cardstock using Granny Apple Green Ink and my Stamping Sponge. I scored the center of the panel, folded it in half and sponged the inside edges with the Granny Apple Green Ink. I adhered the sponged panel to the center of the Brushed Metallic die using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and adhered it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I took a strip of Basic Black cardstock and adhered a rectangle of Brushed Metallic cardstock in the center using Stampin’ Seal. I cut a smaller rectangle of Basic Black cardstock and adhered it in the center of the Brushed Metallic using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the belt to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut 2 trees from a panel of Whisper White cardstock using the Pine Tree Punch and embossed them using the Wrapped In Texture Embossing Folder. I adhered the trees to the top of the card front using Glue Dots, having them over lap on the score line of the center Granny Apple Green piece. I adhered the card front to a Granny Apple Green card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Christmas Means More stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Brushed Metallic mat using Stampin’ Seal then to a Basic Black mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the matted panel to the inside of the Granny Apple Green card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the feather image from the Stampin’ Up! Tasteful Touches Cling Stamp Set in Real Red Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a strip of Daffodil Delight cardstock to the bottom of the envelope front. If you know the movie Elf he wears a green hat with a yellow rim and red feather. I adhered a panel of Artistry Blooms Designer Series Paper to the envelope flap.

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! Ornate Thank You

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Yesterday turned out to be such a beautiful day here.  Upper 70’s with only 50% humidity.  I’d take a whole summer of that weather.

For today’s card I used another one of the Suites from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog that I just had to buy the whole thing, the beautiful Ornate Garden Suite.  Here’s my card for today.

I started by adhering a panel of the Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper to a Bumble Bee card base using Stampin’ Seal.

Using the Ornate Layers Dies I cut a panel of Bumble Bee cardstock .  On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Thanks Photopolymer Stamp Set in Bumble Bee Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using the Ornate Layers Dies and adhered it to the Bumble Bee frame using Stampin’ Seal.

I adhered a piece of 1/4″ Old Olive ribbon from the Ornate Garden Ribbon Combo Pack to the card front using Glue Dots.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front, on top of the ribbon, 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 Bumble Bee Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the daisy image from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Style Cling Stamp Set twice in Early Espresso Ink on the bottom of the panel.  I colored the images in using my Crumb Cake and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to an Old Olive mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the Bumble Bee 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 twice on the envelope front and colored the images in using my Crumb Cake and 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 card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Pastel Ornate Style for Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends.  How is everyone doing today?  Welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we had a Sketch Challenge. Be sure to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects .
Here is the sketch we had to work from.

Here’s my card using this sketch.

My colors for my card today were inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge #339.  Here are their colors.

I started by stamping the large flower image from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Style Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a Whisper White panel.  I colored the image in using my Light Crumb Cake, Mint Macaron, Rococo Rose and Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the image out using the largest die from the Ornate Layers Dies.

I adhered the panel to a Mint Macaron card front using Snail.  I adhered a thin strip of Mint Macaron across the top of the panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I wrapped a piece of Rococo Rose 1/2″ Scalloped Linen Ribbon around the top of the panel securing it in the back using Glue Dots.

I adhered the card front to a Mint Macaron card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few retiring  Seaside Spray 2019-2021 In-Color Faceted Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped  the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Moments Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  Using one of the Ornate Layers Dies I cut out on either side of the sentiment.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Rococo Rose mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Mint Macaron card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the small flower cluster from the Ornate Style stamp set on the envelope front in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the images in using my Mint Macaron, Rococo Rose and  Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the small flower image from the Ornate Style stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope flap and colored them in with my Mint Macaron and Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers.

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! 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 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 the video on the Old Olive card on my Facebook page Here.

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! Wild About You

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  How is everyone’s week going?  How are you all doing with your Social Distancing?  I don’t know about you, but this is getting tougher as the days go by.  I miss spending time with my niece, nephews and all my other family members and friends.  I know this is all for the best, but I’m ready to go back to normal.

For today’s card, I made a real challenging one for me.  I’m not a big fan of Orange or Yellow, but I was determined to make a card using these colors.  Here’s my card for today.

My colors are from the Fab Friday Color Challenge #186.  Here are their colors.

My design is from the CAS(E) This Sketch Challenge #366.  Here is their sketch.

I also played along with Paper Players Theme Challenge #485.  Here is their theme.

I started by stamping the giraffe image from the Stampin’ Up! Animal Outing Cling Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I colored the image in using my Daffodil Delight and Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I then cut the image out using the Animal Friends Dies.  On a panel of Whisper White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Animal Outing stamp set in Soft Suede Ink and cut the sentiment out using the 2nd largest square from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I cut the scalloped square mat using the Layering Squares Dies out of a panel of Terracotta Tile cardstock.  I adhered the stitched square to the scalloped square using Snail and adhered the giraffe image to the square using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Using the giraffe pattern die from the Animal Friends Dies, I cut a Daffodil Delight panel twice.  I adhered the die cut panel to a Mango Melody mat, which I cut using the Stitched So Sweetly Dies, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered a piece of Terracotta Tile 1/2″ Scalloped Linen Ribbon across the middle of the panel using Snail.  I cut a panel of Whisper White cardstock using the Ornate Layers Dies and then embossed it using the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered a panel of Pumpkin Pie Regals 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Thick Whisper White card base using Snail.  I adhered the Whisper White die cut panel to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the matted die cut panel on top of the Whisper White panel using Glue Dots and the artwork on top of the matted die cut panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Terracotta Tile 2019-2021 In-Color Faceted Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! A Big Thank You Photopolymer Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the giraffe image from the Animal Outing stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the bottom of the panel and colored it in using my Daffodil Delight and Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pumpkin Pie mat using Snail 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 giraffe image from the Animal Outing stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the bottom front of the envelope and colored it in using my Daffodil Delight and Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of the Mango Melody Brights 6 X 6 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!!
