Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Harvest CAS Sneak Peek

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone doing today? We’re halfway through the week and on our way to the weekend. I hope you are starting to make some fun plans.

Today I have a Clean and Simple card with a sneak peek for you. Here’s my card for today.

I used the new Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Harvest Cling Stamp Set for my card today. This set will be available on Tuesday August 3rd.

My design is from the CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge #428.

My colors are from The Paper Players challenge #549.

I started by adhering a small panel of Basic White cardstock on a Basic White cardstock with the tiniest amount of Stampin’ Seal just to hold it in place. I stamped the large cone flower image from the Nature’s Harvest stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I carefully removed the small panel so that it wouldn’t stick to the card front. I colored the image in on the small panel and the card front using my Just Jade & Misty Moonlight Stampin’ Blends Markers. I colored the flower center in using my Bumblebee Stampin’ Write Marker.

I adhered the Basic White card front to a Bumblebee card base using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the small panel to a Bumblebee mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to the card front, matching up the images, using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Nature’s Harvest stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the top of the panel. I adhered a Bumblebee Trinket to the small panel with a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Thanks Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the cone flower image on the bottom of the panel in Tuxedo Black Ink and colored the image in using my Just Jade & Misty Moonlight Stampin’ Blends Markers and my Bumblebee Stampin’ Write Marker. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Bumblebee mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Bumblebee card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the cone flower image from the Nature’s Harvest stamp set on the envelope front in Tuxedo Black Ink and colored it in the same as on the card. I adhered a panel of the 2020-2022 In-Color 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. Products will be available on Tuesday August 3rd when the July-December 2021 Mini Catalog goes live. This is really a beautiful set and you will want to put this on your list. Happy Stamping!!

July-December 2021 Mini Catalog Designer Series Paper

I’m offering a Designer Series Paper share from the Stampin’ Up! July-December 2021 Mini Catalog and I’d love to have you join!!  I’m placing my share order early on August 3 and I’m going to use the expedited shipping option so I should be able to have the shares cut, bundled and back out to you during the week of August 9.

How my shares work:  I order full packs of all of the Designer Series Papers listed below, I cut them into 6″ x 6″ pieces (or 6″ x 12″ pieces for double shares) and give you one panel of each design from each pack on the list.  I pack up the paper in a cellophane bag and mail it back out to you just as quickly as I can!  Shares give you a good working sample of all of the papers so that you can decide which ones to order in full packs!

Here are the Designer Series Paper Shares that I am offering from the new Mini Catalog!

New Designer Series Paper Share – $25.00 plus $5.00 for 1st Class Mail shipping

You will receive one 6×6 sheet of each design from the following new DSP packs (the number behind the name indicates how many 6×6 sheets of that paper pack you will receive):

  • Painted Christmas – 6

Double DSP Share – $50 + $7.75 Shipping by Priority Mail – if you’d like double shares of the designer paper, that’s fine too.  I’ll cut the designer paper sheets into 6×12 so that you’ll be able to get 3 full A2 size card fronts from each sheet (except for the Gingerbread & Peppermint, Cute Halloween and Kraft 6″ × 6″, you’ll get double sheets of those since they’re already precut).

Stampin’ Up! Ornate Thanks

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend? I hope you were able to do some fun activities. This was not the weekend I planned at all. Saturday night we spent at the animal hospital with my 13 yr old puppy Jasmine. They had to admit her for the night so they could monitor her. By the time I got home and to sleep it was time to get up for work on Sunday, so I only got maybe 3 hours of sleep. Sunday afternoon Jasmine was able to come home and we just have to watch her for the next couple days, but she seems to be doing much better and is more like herself. She’s just a little more tired than normal, which is to be expected after what she went through.

Today’s card has very little stamping. I let the DSP and Embossing Folder do all the work for me. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Thanks Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Sweet Symmetry Designer Series Paper and the Thanks & Hello Embossing Folder.

My colors were inspired by TGIF Challenge #319.

I started by adhering a panel of the Sweet Symmetry DSP to a Basic White mat using Stampin’ Seal.

I embossed a panel of Basic White cardstock using the Thanks & Hello Embossing Folder. I adhered the panel to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue on an angle. I trimmed the excess off using my Paper Snips. I adhered the card front to a Basic Gray card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Basic Gray cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Ornate Thanks stamp set in Versamark Ink. I immediately sprinkled it with my White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I cut each end on an angle using my Paper Snips and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Silver & Clear Epoxy Essentials to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Ornate Thanks stamp set in Night of Navy Ink towards the top of a Basic White panel. I adhered a strip of the Sweet Symmetry DSP to the bottom of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Night of Navy mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Basic Gray card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of the Sweet Symmetry DSP to the envelope front 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! Hand-Penned Petals Thank You

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend? Did everyone have a nice Mother’s Day? I ended up not working on Sunday, which was kind of nice.

Today’s card I did very little stamping. I let the DSP to all the work for me. That’s one of the great things about Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Paper, it makes cards all on it’s own.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Hand-Penned Petals Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper. Here is my card for today.

My team leader, Jaimie, is giving us weekly challenges to do. There’s a color challenge and sketch challenge. We could use either of both. This was last weeks challenge and I used both.

I started by adhering a panel of the Hand-Penned DSP to a Highland Heather card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped the sentiment from the Hand-Penned Petals stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Hand-Penned DSP. I adhered the DSP to 2 strips of Mint Macaron cardstock using Stampin’ Seal.

I cut a panel of Highland Heather cardstock using one of the Tasteful Labels Dies. I adhered the Highland Heather banner to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the DSP panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I tied a small bow using the Fresh Freesia 3/8″ Open Weave Ribbon and adhered it using a Glue Dot. I added a few Fresh Freesia 2021-2023 In-Color Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Thanks Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I adhered a strip of the Hand-Penned DSP to the bottom of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Mint Macaron 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 adhered a strip of the Hand-Penned DSP to the envelope front 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! Quiet Meadow 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, 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 amazing projects. Here is my card using this weeks sketch.

I used the new Stampin’ Up! Quiet Meadow Cling Stamp Set (available May 4th) for my card today. My colors are from the Fab Friday Challenge #212.

Here is our sketch for this week.

I started by adhering a panel of the 2019-2021 In-Color Designer Series Paper (retiring May 3rd) to a Terracotta Tile card base (retiring may 3rd) using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the flower image from the Quiet Meadow stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image in using my Flirty Flamingo and Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the news print image from the Quiet Meadow stamp set across the stem in Soft Sea Foam Ink. I adhered the artwork to a Basic White mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Quiet Meadow stamp set in Old Olive Ink and adhered it to an Old Olive mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using a Stampin’ Dimensional and a Glue Dot. I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Thanks Photopolymer Stamp Set in Old Olive Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the flower image from the Quiet Meadow stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink, stamping off once. I colored the image in using my Flirty Flamingo and Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the splotch image from the Quiet Meadow stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink around the flower. I adhered the Basic White panel to an Old Olive mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Terracotta Tile card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the flower image from the Quiet Meadow stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and colored it using my Flirty Flamingo and Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the splotch image from the Quiet Meadow stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink around the flowers. I adhered a panel of 2019-2021 In-Color DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! A Touch Of Ink Thank You

Good Saturday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to the weekend. Does anyone have any plans? I’ll be at work all day today and tomorrow. Tomorrow is the last day of the month so I have to close out the books. Hopefully it will be a short day. Speaking of the last day of the month, Sale-A-Bration ends tomorrow. Don’t miss out on those awesome stamp sets and Designer Series Paper.

For today I used one more of the Sale-A-Bration stamp sets and DSP for my card. Even though Sale-A-Bration was 2 months, I feel like I didn’t have enough time to play with everything. Here’s my card for today.

I used the beautiful Stampin’ Up! A Touch Of Ink Photopolymer Stamp Set for my card along with the gorgeous Oh So Ombre 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper.

I started by adhering a panel of the Oh So Ombre DSP to a Basic White mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the matted panel to a Blackberry Bliss card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On another strip of the Oh So Ombre DSP I stamped the sentiment from A Touch Of Ink stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the lightest end of the paper. I cut the strip into a banner using my Banner Triple Punch and adhered it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the outline flower, outline leaves and the outline hummingbird images from A Touch Of Ink stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the images in using my Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green, Just Jade, Poppy Parade, Purple Posy and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image out using largest circle from my Stitched Shapes Dies. I cut the largest scalloped circle from the Layering Circle Dies from a panel of Basic White cardstock and adhered the artwork to the scalloped circle using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the matted artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Purple Posy Playing With Patterns Resin Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Thanks Photopolymer Stamp Set in tuxedo Black Ink towards the top of a Basic White panel. I stamped the leaves image from A Touch Of Ink stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink in the corner of the panel and colored them in using my Just Jade Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to an Oh So Ombre mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Blackberry Bliss card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the outlined flower and outlined leaves images from A Touch Of Ink stamp set on the envelope front. I colored the images in using my Daffodil Delight, Just Jade and Purple Posy Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of the Oh So Ombre 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 Thanks

Good Saturday morning my fellow stampers. Is anyone doing anything this weekend? I’ll be working all day today and tomorrow.

For today’s card I used one of the FREE stamp sets available from Sale-A-Bration. The Stampin’ Up! A Touch Of Ink Photopolymer Stamp Set. There are lots of beautiful images and sentiments in this set. This set is available with a qualifying order of $100 or more. Here’s my card for today.

My upline Jaimie Babarczy is doing a challenge for our team this month. Each week she is giving us a sketch and color challenge. I used the colors, but switched the side of the sketch. This was a bit of a challenge for me since those that know me, know Crushed Curry is my least favorite color. Here’s this weeks challenge.

I started by adhering a panel of Playing With Patterns 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Night of Navy mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to a Night of Navy card base using Stampin’ Seal.

I stamped the outline floral image from A Touch Of Ink stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I cut the image out using my Stitched Shapes Dies. I colored the flower in using my Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers and my Crushed Curry Stampin’ Write Marker. I adhered the image to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped the butterfly image from A Touch Of Ink stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on a panel of Crushed Curry cardstock. I fussy cut the butterfly using my Paper Snips. I colored the butterflies body in and a part of the wing using my Night of Navy Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the butterfly to the card front, overlapping the stitched circle, using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment from A Touch Of Ink stamp set on a strip of Basic White cardstock in Night of Navy Ink and cut the sentiment out using my Tasteful Labels Dies. I colored a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels using my Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Marker and added them to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Thanks Photopolymer Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the butterfly image from A Touch Of Ink stamp set in Crushed Curry Ink, stamping off once, over the sentiment. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Crushed Curry mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Night of Navy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the floral image from A Touch Of Ink stamp set on the envelope front in Night of Navy Ink. I colored the image in using my Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers and Crushed Curry Stampin’ Write Marker. I adhered a panel of Playing With Patterns DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Dragonfly Garden Thanks for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends and welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. I hope everyone is doing well today and staying healthy. If you are hopping over from Akiko, 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 awesome projects. Here is my card for today.

This week we have a color challenge for our blog hop. Here are the colors. I chose Pool Party as the color of my choice. I’m really starting to like black and white cards lately.

I started by stamping the wild flower image from the Stampin’ Up! Dragonfly Garden Cling Stamp Set on a panel of Basic White cardstock twice in Tuxedo Black Ink. I stamped the butterfly image from the Stampin’ Up! Beauty Abounds Cling Stamp Set above the flowers in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the butterfly in using my Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I stamped the sentiment from the Beauty Abounds stamp set on the top of the panel in Tuxedo Black Ink. I embossed the panel using my Subtle 3D Embossing Folder and adhered the panel to a Pool Party mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I wrapped a piece of the 3/8″ Pool Party Sheer Ribbon around the matted panel and tied a bow. I adhered the card front to a Basic Black card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Thanks Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the butterfly image from the Beauty Abounds stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink above the sentiment and colored it in using my Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Pool Party mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Basic Black card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the wild flower image from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I stamped the butterfly image from the Beauty Abounds stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink by the flowers and colored it in using my Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of the Sale-A-Bration Oh So Ombre 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! So Sentimental for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning and Merry Christmas Eve my stamping friends, welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. Is everyone ready for the big day? I’m as ready as I’m going to be this year. 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 the sketch.

I used the Stampin’ Up! So Sentimental Bundle for my card today.

I started by coloring a panel of the new True Love Designer Series Paper (coming in the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog) using my Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the panel using my Stitched Rectangle Dies.

I adhered a panel of the True Love DSP to a Cherry Cobbler card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the stitched rectangle panel to the top of the card front using Stampin’ Seal.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! So Sentimental Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and cut it out using my Stitched So Sweetly Dies. I adhered a piece of 1/4″ Old Olive Ribbon from the Ornate Garden Ribbon Combo Pack with Glue Dots. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Cherry Cobbler Rhinestones from the Holiday Rhinestones Basic Jewels.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Onate Thanks Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel. I stamped the flower from the Stampin’ Up! Painted Poppies Cling Stamp Set on the bottom of the panel and colored them in using my Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a strip of the True Love DSP to the bottom 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 Cherry Cobbler card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I adhered a panel of the colored True Love DSP to the envelope front and 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.

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) – SOLD OUT
  • Assorted Memories & More Cards & Envelopes (149710)
  • Whisper White Note Cards & Envelopes (131527) – SOLD OUT
  • 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) – SOLD OUT
  • Whisper White Medium Envelopes (107301) – SOLD OUT

Stop by the online store to get the following Whisper White products that you love before they’re gone forever!  The Thick Whisper White card stock, Whisper White 12″ x 12″ Cardstock, Medium Envelopes and Note Cards & Envelopes have already sold out!

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! Dragonfly Garden Thank You Sneak Peek

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers. How is everyone’s week going? We’re halfway through and on our way to the weekend. Another month flying by. I was walking home from work the other day and noticed everyone’s leaves raked to the curb waiting to be picked up, except mine. Mine are still green on my tree. I have a purple plum tree in my backyard and it’s still purple full of leaves. Other that pine trees, I have the only trees with leaves that haven’t turned on our block. My trees are definitely laughing at me.

I have sneak peek for you today of another card that we ‘made’ at OnStage@Home this past weekend. This is another one that everyone’s will look different depending on which patterns of the paper everyone chose. Here’s my take on the card.

I played along with Always Fun Challenge #188. Their theme is ‘Thank You’.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Dragonfly Garden Bundle which will be available for purchase January 5, 2021 from the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog.

I started by stamping the small dragonfly cluster image from the Stampin’ Up! Dragonfly Garden Stamp Set in Bumblebee Ink along the side of a Whisper White panel. I adhered a panel of Dandy Garden 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper across the center of the panel using Stampin’ Seal.

I stamped the sentiment from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set on the bottom of the panel in Misty Moonlight Ink. On a panel of Bumblebee cardstock I stamped the wings fill image from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set in Bumblebee Ink twice. From a panel of the Dandy Garden DSP I punched one of the dragonflies out using my Dragonflies Punch and adhered it to the Bumblebee panel, above the stamped wings so that it looked like a shadow, using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered the 2 shorter panels of Dandy Garden DSP to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the Bumblebee panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the card front to a Misty Moonlight card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I added a Ladybug Trinkets to the corner of the Bumblebee panel using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Thanks Photopolymer Stamp Set in the center of a Whisper White panel in Misty Moonlight Ink. I stamped the dragonfly image from Dragonfly Garden stamp set twice on the panel. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Bumblebee mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Misty Moonlight card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the dragonfly image from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set in Bumblebee Ink twice on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of Dandy Garden DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today, I hope you liked my card. All items used for today’s card, except for the Ornate Thanks stamp set, will be available from the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog on January 5, 2021. If you are one of my customers and have placed an order in the past year, I will be sending you the catalog as soon as I get them. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Dragonfly Garden Sneak Peek Thank You

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends. How has everyone’s week started off? I hope you are all having a productive one. We’re having a rainy week here in NJ, Autumn is in full bloom here also. Leaves have changed and are starting to cover the ground. Most of the trees that is. We have one in our front yard and one in our backyard that haven’t even begun to show signs of changing color let alone drop their leaves. They usually wait till we get all the raking done and the leaves are picked up to drop their leaves. It’s almost like they are watching us and laughing at us.

I have another sneak peek for you to day at the stamp set coming in the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Dragonfly Garden Bundle for you again. I’m really loving this set. My colors were inspired by Fab Friday Challenge #200. Here are their colors. I know the colors probably scream Halloween to you, but I saw them as flowers and dragonflies.

I started by adhering a panel of In Good Taste Designer Series Paper to an Artistry Blooms Designer Series Paper card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I wrapped a piece of 1/2″ Whisper White Faux Linen Ribbon from the Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack around the card front and tied a bow. I adhered the card front to a Garden Green card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the wild flower image from the Stampin’ Up! Dragonfly Garden Cling Stamp Set (available January 5, 2021), in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. I colored the image in using my Granny Apple Green, Highland Heather and Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image out using the 2nd largest square from the Stitched Shapes Dies and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I stamped the dragonfly image from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock and colored the wings in using my Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image out using my Dragonflies Punch and brushed the wings using my Clear Wink of Stella. I adhered the dragonfly to the bottom of the floral image using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and cut it into a banner using my Banner Pick A Punch. I adhered the banner to the top of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Pumpkin Pie Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Thanks Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel. I stamped the dragonfly image from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on either side of the panel and colored them in using my Highland Heather and Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Granny Apple Green mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Garden Green card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the dragonfly image from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set twice on the envelope front and colored them in using my Highland Heather and Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I adhered a panel of the In Good Taste DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card. The stamp set and punch used will be available to you January 5, 2021 from the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog. The DSP used is available now at a discounted price, but only until Saturday October 31, 2020.
