Stampin’ Up! Cheerful Basket

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends. Welcome to the weekend. Does anyone have any plans this weekend? I have the weekend off, YAY! Tonight, I will be attending virtually our Creativity Now Event. All the cards we will be making will be featuring the Stampin’ Up! Splendid Thoughts Bundle. I’m looking forward to just having fun stamping online with other demonstrators. I’ll be showing the cards we will be making over the next week.

Today’s card is one that we made at our Mystery Stamping this past Tuesday at our Team Stamping Studio. Mystery stamping is always a lot of fun. Our Upline Jaimie give us cardstock and DSP measurements and talks us through putting it together. All of our cards are similar, but different. Here’s what I came up with for my card.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Cheerful Basket Bundle along with the Tea Boutique 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my card.

I started by embossing a panel of Basic White cardstock using the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered it to a Basic White Thick card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered a panel of Tea Boutique DSP to a Sweet Sorbet mat. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment form the Stampin’ Up! Cheerful Basket Photopolymer Stamp Set in Sweet Sorbet Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Sweet Sorbet mat. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the basket, butterfly, cat and craft supply image from the Cheerful Basket stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the images in using my Daffodil Delight, Flirty Flamingo, Fresh Freesia, Orchid Oasis, Pale Papaya, Parakeet Party, Polished Pink, Smoky Slate, Soft Suede, Starry Sky, Sweet Sorbet and Tahitian Tide Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut all the images out using my Full Basket Dies. I adhered the images on the sentiment panel the way I wanted them using Glue dots and Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few 2022-2024 In-Color Matte Decorative Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Cheerful Basket stamp set in Sweet Sorbet Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the cat image from the Cheerful Basket stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom of the panel and colored it using my Pale Papaya Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Sweet Sorbet mat and then to the inside of the Basic White Thick card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the butterfly and cat images from the Cheerful Basket stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I colored the images in using my Daffodil Delight and Pale Papaya Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of the Tea Boutique 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! Oceanfront Sympathy

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. Happy June!! Here we go starting another month and I feel like I’ve missed most of May. We’re halfway through the week and on our way to the weekend. It’s supposed to cool off a little here over the next few days. When I got in my car yesterday to fun some errands, the temp said it was 101. That was with my card in the shade. I believe today is only supposed to hit 75 out.

Today’s card is one of those cards you don’t really like to make, but at times have to. Someone very dear and close to me passed over the weekend. I have so many wonderful memories from my childhood. My uncle was a wonderful man, caring and generous. Our families used to go on vacation together every summer for 2-3weeks. We’d laugh till our sides hurt. He will be missed but will always be in my heart. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Oceanfront Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Harvest Cling Stamp Set for my card today.

I started by stamping the wheat grass and sand images from the Oceanfront stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink on a Sahara Sand card front. I embossed the card front using the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to a Sahara Sand card base.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, using the Oceanfront stamp set, I stamped the top of the panel with Balmy Blue Ink. I stamped the center image with Coastal Cabana Ink and the bottom image in Sahara Sand Ink. I stamped the sand image from the Oceanfront stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink. I stamped the wheat grass image from the Oceanfront stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink and the small grass image in Garden Green Ink. I stamped the bird image from the Stampin’ Up! Let’s Set Sail Photopolymer Stamp Set on the top of the panel in Smoky Slate Ink. I cut the panel using the 3rd largest Stitched Rectangle Die. I adhered the stamped panel to a Balmy Blue mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Nature’s Harvest Stamp Set in Sahara Sand Ink. Using my Banner Pick A Punch I cut the end of the strip. I adhered the sentiment to the bottom of the panel using Stampin’ Seal and Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Faux Sea Glass Shapes along the water edge.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Inspired Thoughts Cling Stamp Set in Sahara Sand Ink. I stamped the sand image from the Oceanfront stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink along the bottom of the panel. I stamped the wheat grass image from the Oceanfront stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink. I stamped the bird image from the Let’s Set Sail stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink on the top of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Balmy Blue mat and then to the inside of the Sahara Sand card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the sand image from the Oceanfront stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink on the envelope front. I stamped the wheat grass image from the Oceanfront stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink on the bottom of the envelope front. I adhered a panel of Neutrals 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!!

Stampin’ Up! Lovely You Butterflies 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. This week we have a Theme Challenge. Here is my card using this week’s Theme.

I used the Butterflies & Flowers Layering Decorative Masks along with the Stampin’ Up! Lovely You Cling Stamp Set and Brights 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my card today.

This is our theme for this week.

My colors are from Hand Stamped Sentiments Color Challenge #387.

I started with a Basic White card front and using my Blending Brushes and the Butterflies & Flowers Masks I added Bermuda Bay Ink with the open butterfly mask on the top and bottom of the panel. I placed the detail butterfly mask over the inked image and added Pacific Point Ink. I embossed the panel using my Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder.

I adhered a panel of the Brights DSP to a Coastal Cabana card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On a strip of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from Lovey You stamp set in Pacific Point Ink. I cut the sentiment out using my Label Me Fancy Punch. I threaded a length of White 3/8″ Glittered Organdy Ribbon through the 2 ends and adhered it to the back of the card front using Tear & Tape.

I adhered the card front to the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I added a few Coastal Cabana Playing with Patterns Resin Dots to the artwork and a couple Brushed Brass Butterflies to the punched sentiment.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Through It Together stamp set in Pacific Point Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the flower image from the Lovely You stamp set in Bermuda Bay Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper, on either side of the sentiment. I adhered a strip of the Brights DSP to the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Bermuda Bay mat and then to the inside of the Coastal Cabana card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of the Brights DSP to the envelope front and a panel to the envelope flap.

Thank you for visiting my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Now that you’ve seen my card, take a minute to hop through and see everyone’s projects today.

Stampin’ Up! Art Gallery for The Card Concepts Challenge

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. We’re halfway through the week already and on our way to the weekend. It’s supposed to be a beautiful spring day here in NJ. We’ll have to see what happens 😉

It’s time for another inspiration challenge for The Card Concepts. The inspiration photo is Vintage Style. Here is my card that was inspired from the challenge photo.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Art Gallery Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the 2022-2024 In-Color 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper (available May 3) and the Brushstroke Specialty Paper (available May 3) for my Clean and Layered card. I was inspired by the flowers on the pillow and the colors from the photo.

I hope you will take a moment to visit The Card Concepts and join us for our challenge #173.  How are you inspired by this photo?

I started by embossing a Soft Suede card front using the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered a panel of the new 2022-2024 In-Color DSP to the card front. I adhered the card front to a Soft Suede card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered a panel of the new Brushstroke Specialty Paper to a Soft Suede mat and then to the card front. On a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock, I stamped the stem image from the Art Gallery stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink. I stamped the solid flower image from the Art Gallery stamp set in Blushing Bride Ink on the stem. I stamped the detailed flower image from the Art Gallery stamp set in Sweet Sorbet Ink over the solid image. I cut the panel using the largest circle from the new Stylish Shapes Dies (available May 3) and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the panel of Very Vanilla cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Art Gallery stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink and cut it out using the Stylish Shapes Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I tied a double bow using the Very Vanilla Bakers Twine from the Baker’s Twine Essential Pack and adhered it to the stem using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Celebrating You Cling Stamp Set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on a Very Vanilla panel. I stamped the smaller flower image from the Art Gallery stamp set in Blushing Bride Ink above and below the sentiment. I tore the edges of the panel and sponged them with some Soft Suede Ink. I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Blushing Bride mat and then to the inside of the Soft Suede card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Very Vanilla Medium Envelope. I stamped the flower image from the Art Gallery stamp set on the envelope front the same as I did for the card front. I adhered a panel of the 2022-2024 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. Some of the products used for my card today won’t be available until May 3 from the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Celebrating You Mother’s Day

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend? I hope you were able to do something fun.

Today’s card is one that we are going to make at my Stamp Camp card class tomorrow night. I thought I’d focus on using some designer series paper with the ladies. I know I always used to struggle with how and when to use it. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Celebrating you Cling Stamp Set along with the Expressions in Ink Designer Series Paper for my card today. Tomorrow night the ladies are all going to be making this card, but they will all have different designs of the DSP and different color card stock for their cards. I can’t wait to see how different they all come out.

I started by embossing a Basic White card front using the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the card front to a Polished Pink mat and then to a Thick Basic White card base.

I cut 4 panels of the Expressions in Ink DSP using my Stitched Rectangle Dies. I adhered the 4 cut panels of DSP to 4 Polished Pink mats and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Celebrating You stamp set in Polished Pink Ink. I cut the sentiment out using the same side Stitched Rectangle Die and adhered it to a Polished Pink mat. I adhered the layered sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Polished Pink 2021-2023 In-Color Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Celebrating You stamp set in Polished Pink Ink on a Basic White panel. I adhered a strip of the Expressions in Ink DSP to the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Polished Pink mat and then to the inside of the Thick Basic White card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of the Expressions in Ink DSP on 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! Back On Your Feet Giraffe

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend? Did anyone do anything fun? The cold weather is back here for us. It’s only supposed to get up to 36 today and drop to 23 tonight. We even had a snow squall go through yesterday while I was at work. We may skip spring this year and go right to summer like we have in the past.

Today’s card is a special one. Some of you know that I was a Girl Scout when I was younger, and I was Girl Scout Leader for 13 years for my daughter. I had girls from kindergarten all the way up to graduation from high school. I bridged them to adult Girl Scouts in June of 2016. One of my girl scouts that I had for the full 13 years, I always called her the wild child, was in a car accident a few weeks ago. She got banged up pretty bad was in the hospital for a week and had to have knee surgery along with some others. I thought I’d make her a card letting her know that we were thinking of her and hoping that she has a speedy recovery. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Back On Your Feet Cling Stamp Set along with the In The Wild Designer Series Paper and the Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by adhering a panel of Pansy Petals DSP to a Bumblebee card base. I embossed a panel of Evening Evergreen cardstock using the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered a panel of In The Wild DSP to a Bumblebee mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to the embossed panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and set aside.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the giraffe image from the Back On Your Feet stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I stamped just the leaf from the sloth image on the top of the panel in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the images using my Cinnamon Cider, Flirty Flamingo, So Saffron and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image out using my Stitched Rectangle Dies and adhered it to a Bumblebee mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered artwork to the layered panels using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I wrapped a piece of the Bumblebee 1/4″ Gingham Trim around the layered panels and tied a bow. On a small piece of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment out from the Back On Your Feet stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink and cut it our using my Layering Circles Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the left of the artwork using Glue Dots and Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the layered panels to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Cinnamon Cider 2020-2022 In-Color Square Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment form the Back On Your Feet stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the giraffe image to the right of the sentiment in Tuxedo Black Ink and colored it using my Cinnamon Cider, Flirty Flamingo and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to an Evening Evergreen mat and then to the inside of the Bumblebee card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the giraffe image from the Back On Your Feet stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and colored it using my Cinnamon Cider, Flirty Flamingo and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of In The Wild 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. Don’t forget that this stamp set, and both of the DSP’s will be retiring soon on May 2nd. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Art Gallery Birthday

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends and welcome to the weekend, YAY!!! What’s everyone doing this weekend? Hope you have something fun planned. I’m not sure what I’ll be doing today, but I have to work all day tomorrow.

This past Tuesday I had a card class and we focused on using the 2020-2022 In-Colors. These colors will be retiring come April making room for 5 new In-Colors in May. It’s always sad to see colors go, but also exciting for the new ones. If you love these colors like I do, you might want to grab some Cardstock, DSP, Ink Pads, Markers, Blends or even the Square Gems before they are gone. Here’s one of my cards we made Tuesday night.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Art Gallery Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the 2020-2022 In-Color Designer Series Paper and the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper. This stamp set is one of the sets that is on sale as a bundle during the month of March for 20% off.

I started by adhering a panel of In Good Taste DSP to a Misty Moonlight card base.

I adhered a panel of the 2020-2022 In Color DSP to a Misty Moonlight mat and then to the card front using Stampin’ Seal.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the stem/leaf image from the Art Gallery stamp set in Just Jade Ink. I stamped the solid flower image from the Art Gallery stamp set in Magenta Madness Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper. I stamped the detailed flower image from the Art Gallery stamp set in Magenta Madness Ink over the stamped off image. I cut the panel using the 4th smallest Stitched Rectangle Die. I stamped the sentiment from the Art Gallery stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink on the top of the panel. I embossed the panel using my Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the artwork to a Misty Moonlight mat and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few 2020-2022 In-Color Square Gems to the artwork

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Moments Cling Stamp Set in Misty Moonlight Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the stem/leaf image from the Art Gallery in Just Jade Ink on the side of the panel. I stamped the solid Flower image from the Art Gallery stamp set in Magenta Madness Ink, stamped off once on scrap paper, on the stem. I stamped the detailed flower image from the Art Gallery stamp set in Magenta Madness Ink over the stamped off image. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Magenta Madness mat and then to the inside of the Misty Moonlight card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the flower image from the Art Gallery stamp set on the envelope front the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of In Good Taste 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! Calming Camellia CAS

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. Hope your weekend is going well. Who will be watching the Superbowl tonight? I might watch bits and pieces just to catch the commercials. Neither of the teams are the ones my husband roots for, so he really doesn’t care who wins.

Sale-a-bration has some awesome items this time around. I’m loving playing with all of them, but especially one set. I’ve made a few cards for this week using it. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Calming Camellia Cling Stamp Set for my card today.

I played along with Cardz 4 Galz Challenge #166, Use Kraft Card.

I started by stamping the floral image from the Calming Camellia stamp set on a panel of Basic White cardstock in Crumb Cake Ink. I cut the image out using my Scalloped Contour Dies.

I stamped the sentiment from the Calming Camellia stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink on the bottom of the panel. I wrapped a piece of the Crumb Cake Bakers Twine from the Bakers Twine Essential Pack, around the panel and tied a bow.

I embossed a Crumb Cake card front using the Painted Textures 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to a Crumb Cake card base. I adhered the stamped panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Brushed Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Calming Camellia stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the floral image from the Calming Camellia stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink, stamping off once, in the center of the panel over the sentiment. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Crumb Cake mat and then to the inside of the Crumb Cake card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the floral image from the Calming Camellia stamp set on the envelope front in Crumb Cake Ink. I adhered a panel of Neutrals 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. This set is available until February 28 as a Sale-a-bration Host item. If you are interested in receiving this set, I’d be happy to set up a Host Code for you and your friends so that maybe you can earn it.

Stampin’ Up! Christmas Season Birthday Card

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. Happy Halloween!!!! Are you ready for your trick or treaters? We don’t usually get many, last year we got 5. Maybe we’ll be surprised this year and get a few more. My husband loves Halloween and decorates the outside music and all.

Today’s card is one that we made back in August during one of our Mystery Stamping meetings. My upline Jaimie designed the card and we had to pick the colors and stamp set we wanted to use. I liked this design so much I had to make it again using a different stamp set, DSP and colors. I think I may even have the ladies make this card at my next class. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Christmas Season Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Moments Cling Stamp Set for my card today.

My colors are from Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge #375.

I started by randomly stamping the images from the Christmas Season stamp set in Misty Moonlight, Rich Razzleberry and Smoky Slate Inks, stamping off once, on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I embossed the panel using my Painted Textures 3D Embossing Folder.

I cut the artwork into 1″ strips using my Paper Trimmer and adhered them to the Basic White mat, leaving a tiny space between the strips, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the layered panel to a Rich Razzleberry mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered a panel of Pattern Party Host Designer Series Paper to a Basic White mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to a Misty Moonlight card base. I adhered the layered artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Rich Razzleberry cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the  Peaceful Moments stamp set in Versamark Ink. I immediately sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I cut the sentiment out using my Stitched So Sweetly Dies. I colored a length of  3/8″ Glittered Organdy Ribbon using my Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Marker and adhered it to the top of the artwork using a tiny amount of Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the sentiment over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Peaceful Moments stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the images from the Christmas Season stamp set in Misty Moonlight, Rich Razzleberry and Smoky Slate Inks, stamping off once, on the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Rich Razzleberry mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Misty Moonlight card base.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope . I stamped the images from the Christmas Season stamp set on the envelope front in Misty Moonlight, Rich Razzleberry and Smoky Slate Inks, stamping off once. I adhered a panel of the Pattern Party Host 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! Delicate Dahlias Birthday Triple Time Card

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends. Welcome to the weekend, I hope you have something fun planned.

I have my alternative version of the Triple Time Card for you today that I made on Wednesday. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Sale-a-bration Delicate Dahlias Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Stampin’ Up! Sale-a-bration Host In Your Words Cling Stamp Set for my card today.

I started by taking 3 panels of Basic White cardstock and lightly adhering them together with the tiniest amount of Stampin’ Seal just to hold them in place while stamping. I stamped the sentiment from the In Your Words SAB Host stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on the smallest Basic White panel. I then randomly stamped the 3 images from the Delicate Dahlias stamp set in Bumblebee, Calypso Coral and Just Jade Ink on the layered panels. I embossed all 3 panels using my Painted Textures 3D Embossing Folder.

I gently took the panels apart and adhered the smallest and middle Basic White panels to Just Jade mats using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the smallest layered panel to the middle panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue being sure to match up the flower and leaf images.

I adhered the layered panel to the large Basic White Stamped panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, making sure to match up the flowers and leaf images. I colored a length of the new White 3/8″ Glittered Organdy Ribbon using my Night of Navy Stampin’ Blends Markers. I wrapped the ribbon around the layered card front and tied a bow. I adhered the layered card front to a Just Jade card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Night of Navy Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the In Your Words SAB Host stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the large dahlia image from the Delicate Dahlias SAB stamp set in Bumblebee Ink, stamped off once, over the sentiment. I stamped the leaf image from the Delicate Dahlias SAB stamp set in Just Jade Ink, stamped off twice, by the dahlia image. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Bumblebee mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Just Jade card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the large dahlia image from the Delicate Dahlias SAB stamp set in Bumblebee Ink on the envelope flap. I stamped the leaf image from the Delicate Dahlias SAB stamp set in Just Jade Ink on the envelope front and the envelope flap. I stamped the small flower image from the Delicate Dahlias stamp set in Calypso Coral Ink on the envelope front.

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