Stampin’ Up! Hand-Penned Petals Mother’s Day Card

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. We’re halfway through the week and heading towards the weekend. I actually have the day off today. Since I have to work all day Friday for the last of the month I decided not to go in today. Instead, I’m planning on going to the nursery to buy myself some more Hydrangea bushes. I have a garden that seems to get an excessive amount of water and I thought they would do perfectly there. I’ll buy them and plant them and I’ve asked my son and husband to dig up the garden so I can get it prepped.

It’s time for another inspiration challenge for The Card Concept. For the next 2 weeks we have a Happy Mother’s Day challenge. Here is my card that was inspired from the challenge photo.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Hand-Penned Petals Bundle (available May 4th). I was inspired by the beautiful spring flowers and colors in the bouquet for my Clean and Layered card. My design is from Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge #362.

I hope you will take a moment to visit The Card Concept and join us this week to play along with our challenge #154. How are you inspired by this photo?

I started by adhering a panel of the retiring Brights 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Thick Basic White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I cut a panel of Basic White cardstock using the Stitched Rectangle Dies then embossed is using the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the panel to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the large flower image from the Stampin’ Up! Hand-Penned Petals Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I stamped the individual flower and leaf images from the Hand-Penned Petals stamp set in Daffodil Delight, Mint Macaron, Pacific Point and Polished Pink. I cut the image out using my Penned Flowers Dies (available May 4th).

Using the Penned Flowers Dies, I cut some of the leaves out of a panel of Garden Green cardstock and adhered them to the back of the bouquet using Glue Dots. I adhered a length of the Silver trim from the Simply Elegant Trim (available May 4th) using a little Stampin’ Seal to hold it in place. I adhered the bouquet to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to some of the flower centers. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Dressed To Impress Photopolymer Stamp Set in Pacific Point Ink and adhered it to the floral image using a Glue Dot and Stampin’ Dimensional.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Simply Succulent Cling Stamp Set in Pacific Point in the center of Basic White panel. I had stamped the floral image from the Hand-Penned Petals stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock and colored it in, but decided not to use it. I cut the image out using the detailed floral die from the Penned Flowers Dies and adhered it to the bottom of the panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Pacific Point mat using Stampin’ Seal then adhered it to the inside of the Thick Basic White card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the floral image from the Hand-Penned Petals stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I stamped the solid flower and leaf images in Daffodil Delight, Mint Maccaron, Pacific Point and Polished Pink Inks. I adhered a panel of the Brights 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! Tranquil Thoughts Mother’s Day

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

Today’s card is another we made at our class last Monday. This one was a little different. I didn’t show the ladies the card. I handed them an envelope with all the card pieces cut out and gave them 2 stamp sets to choose from to work with and told them to create. One of them had Poppy Parade cardstock and ink and the other had Melon Mambo cardstock and ink. I used Flirty Flamingo for mine. Everyone had the same pieces of True Love Designer Series Paper to use. Unfortunately I forgot to take pictures of the card designs they came up with. None were like mine. Here’s my card for today.

My card used the Stampin’ Up! Tranquil Thoughts Bundle. This bundle will be retiring soon, so if it’s one that you like now’s the time to grab it.

I started by embossing a Basic White card front using the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder. Everyone had the same embossed panel to start with. I adhered s strip of Flirty Flamingo cardstock to the back of the strip of True Love DSP using Stampin’ Seal and adhered it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the flower image from the Tranquil Thoughts stamp set in Flirty Flamingo Ink and cut it our using my Tranquil Dies.

I stamped the sentiment from the Tranquil Thoughts stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the Basic White panel and cut it out using the Layering Circle Dies. I cut a panel of Flirty Flamingo cardstock using the next size up Layering Circle Dies and adhered the sentiment to the mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the flowers to the side of the sentiment using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the card front to a Flirty Flamingo card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Strong & Beautiful Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the flower image from the Tranquil Thoughts stamp set in Flirty Flamingo Ink on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Flirty Flamingo mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Flirty Flamingo card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the flower image from the Tranquil Thoughts stamp set in Flirty Flamingo Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the True Love 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!!

I colored the image in using my Fresh Freesia, Pale Papaya, Polished Pink and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image out using my new Scalloped Contour Dies. I think these might just be my new favorite dies.

I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I tied a small bow using the new Evening Evergreen 3/8″ Open Weave Ribbon and adhered it to the flower stem using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Flowers of Friendship stamp set in the center of a Basic White panel.

Stampin’ Up! Corner Bouquet Anniversary

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend? Did anyone do anything exciting or fun? This time of year with the cold weather, other than work, I stay in and sometimes relax.

For today I have another Sale-A-Bration card for you. This is our last week to earn FREE product. There’s still time to place your orders and get your free items. For today I used the Stampin’ Up! Corner Bouquet Cling Stamp Set. Here’s today’s card.

My colors are from Color Throwdown #630. I just love these colors together.

I started by embossing a Mint Macaron card front using the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to a Blushing Bride card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the image from the Corner Bouquet stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink. I cut the image out using the Stitched Rectangle Dies and adhered it to a Gold Foil mat using Stampin’ Seal. Using the Confetti Flowers Border Punch I punched out some tiny flowers from a panel of Blushing Bride cardstock. I cut some other flowers out of the Blushing Bride cardstock using the Wreath Builder Dies. I adhered the flowers to the artwork using tiny amounts of Multipurpose Liquid Glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the matted panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I made a tiny bow using the Gold Trim from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack and adhered it to the bottom of the flowers using a Glue Dot. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Many Messages Cling Stamp in Soft Suede Ink and cut it out using my Messages Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the top of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added some Gold Glitter Enamel Dots to the flower centers.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Hearty To Heart Photopolymer Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the image from the Corner Bouquet stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink on the bottom of the panel and added some more of the Blushing Bride flowers I cut out using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Mint Macaron mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Blushing Bride card base using Stampin’ Seal. I added a few more Gold Glitter Enamel Dots to the flowers.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the image from the Corner Bouquet stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of Blushing Bride Subtle 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper on 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! Many Messages Hello

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers. How was everyone’s weekend? Did everyone enjoy the Super Bowl?

I played with a couple bundles for today’s card. Once again, I couldn’t make up my mind what to use. I used the Stampin’ Up! Many Messages Bundle and the Stampin’ Up! Blossoms In Bloom Bundle for my card. Here’s my card for today.

I played along with Watercooler Wednesday Challenge #307.

I started by embossing a Basic White card front using the Painted Textured 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the card front to a Basic White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Using the Many Layered Blooms Die, I cut a panel of Petal Pink card stock and a panel of Mint Macaron cardstock. I adhered the Mint Macaron to the top of the Petal Pink using tiny amounts of Multipurpose Liquid Glue in the thicker spots. I adhered the die cut to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Many Messages Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I cut the sentiment out using the Messages Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. The Many Messages set is such an awesome set. It’s 1 stamp that you stamp all these sentiments and 1 die that cuts them all at once. I added a few Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Heal Your Heart Cling Stamp Set (Sale-a-bration item), in Tuxedo Black Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I just love the fonts and sentiments from this stamp set. I stamped the small flower image from the Stampin’ Up! Blossoms In Bloom Photopolymer Stamp Set in Petal Pink Ink on either side of the sentiment. I stamped the leaf image from the Blossoms In Bloom stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink next to the flowers. I stamped the flower center in Coastal Cabana Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Mint Macaron mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Basic White card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. Using the Blossoms In Bloom stamp set I stamped the small flower on the envelope front and flap in Petal Pink Ink. I stamped the leaf image near the flowers in Mint Macaron Ink and the flower centers in Coastal Cabana Ink.

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

Stampin’ Up! Art Gallery for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Are you all ready for the weekend? It’s the last weekend of January already. Does anyone have plans? I have to go into work for a couple hours on Sunday since it’s the last of the month, but I have off tomorrow. It’s my husbands birthday this weekend, so I thought I’d be nice and be home to make him a birthday dinner. Turns out he wants pizza made in his pizza oven, which means he’s cooking.

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

I used the Stampin’ Up! Art Gallery Bundle for my card today along with the Fine Art Floral Designer Series Paper.

I started by doing all the cutting and folding on a Terracotta Tile card base. I started with a panel of 4 1/4″ X 11″ card base. I scored it at the 5 1/2″ mark from the top to 1″ from the bottom. I scored at 6″ from the bottom up 1″. I scored at 3 1/4″ from the bottom up to 1″. I scored at 8 1/4″ from the top down to 1″. I turned the card base and lined the edge up at the 1″ mark on my Trimmer and cut from the 3 1/4″ score line to the 8 1/4″ score line. I valley folded on the 5 1/2″ score line and mountain folded on the 6″ score line. The other score lines kind of just fall into place. It’s explained much better on the video if you are able to watch it.

This is the top view of the card base and how it should look.

I adhered the panels of Fine Art Floral DSP to Basic White mats using Stampin’ Seal and then to the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Art Gallery Photopolymer Stamp Set on a panel of Basic White cardstock in Mossy Meadow Ink and cut it out using the smallest label die from the Floral Gallery Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the bottom cut panel of the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I embossed a panel of Basic White cardstock using the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to the back panel of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the large flower image from the Art Gallery stamp set in Terracotta Tile Ink, stamping off once. I stamped the detail flower image from the Art Gallery stamp set in Terracotta Tile Ink over the stamped off image. I stamped the stem image from the Art Gallery stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink on the panel of Basic White cardstock. I cut the images out using the Floral Gallery Dies. I adhered the stem image to the embossed panel using Glue Dots. I adhered the flower on the stem using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

For the inside I stamped the bouquet of flowers image from the Art Gallery stamp set by coloring the stems with my Old Olive Stampin’ Write Marker and the tiny buds with my Bumblebee Stampin’ Write Marker, on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the image again, just inking up the flowers with Night Of Navy Ink, I stamped off on a piece of scrap paper 2 times to get a very light shade. I stamped the small detail flower in Night of Navy Ink over 3 of the stamped flowers. I fussy cut the flowers using my Paper Snips. I adhered the flowers to the bouquet using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, then adhered the bouquet to the card base using Glue Dots. On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Simply Succulents Cling Stamp Set in Mossy Meadow Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Mossy Meadow mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Terracotta Tile card base using Stampin’ Seal. I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the stem image from the Art Gallery stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink on the envelope front. I stamped the flower image from the Art Gallery stamp set in Terracotta Tile Ink, stamping off once, on the stem. I stamped the detailed flower image over the stamped image in Terracotta Tile Ink. I adhered a panel of the Fine Art Floral DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. The list of measurements are below if you’d like to stamp along while watching the video. You can watch my video on my Facebook page Here.

Stampin’ Up! Berry Blessings 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 theme challenge. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s awesome projects. Here is my card for today.

I used the Free Stampin’ Up! Berry Blessings Bundle from the Sale-A-Bration! Catalog. This bundle is free with a qualifying order of $100. You get the stamp set and a full pack of Berry Delightful Designer Series Paper. Our challenge this week was to use anything from the Sale-A-Bration! Catalog

I started by adhering a panel of the Berry Delightful Designer Series Paper to a Pacific Point card base using Stampin’ Seal. I cut a panel of Pacific Point cardstock using the Ornate Borders Dies on both sides. I adhered a panel of Berry Delightful DSP to the center of the die cut panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the matted panel to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I embossed a panel of Granny Apple Green cardstock using the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to a Pacific Point mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the matted panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the outline leaf image from the Stampin’ Up! Berry Blessings Photopolymer Stamp Set in Shaded Spruce Ink. I stamped the leaf fill image in Granny Apple Green Ink over the outlined image. I stamped the blueberry outline image from the Berry Blessings stamp set in Pacific Point Ink on the leaf and the fill image in Pacific Point Ink, stamped off once, over the outline image. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Sweet Strawberry Photopolymer Stamp Set in Pacific Point Ink above the blueberries. I cut the panel out using the Stitched Shapes Dies. I cut a scalloped square from a panel of Pacific Point cardstock using the Layering Squares Dies. I adhered the artwork to the scalloped square using Stampin’ Seal and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals on the top half and Glue Dots on the bottom half.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Berry Blessings stamp set in Pacific Point in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the outlined leaf image from the Berry Blessings stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the leaf fill image over the outlined image in Granny Apple Green Ink. I stamped the outline blueberry image from the Berry Blessings stamp set in Pacific Point Ink and the blueberry fill image in Pacific Point Ink, stamping off once, over the outlined image. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Granny Apple Green mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Pacific Point card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the leaf and blueberry images from the Berry Blessings stamp set on the envelope front the same as I did for the card front and inner liner. I adhered a panel of Berry Delightful DSP 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 all our projects today.

Stampin’ Up! Sweet Strawberry Sneak Peek

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers. How has everyone’s week started off? I’m working again today, but I do have off tomorrow. Is anyone starting to make any plans for New Year’s Eve? We’ll be staying home.

I have another sneak peek for you today from the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog. Here’s my card for today.

I used the new Stampin’ Up! Sweet Strawberry Photopolymer Stamp Set for my card along with the Berry Delight Designer Series Paper that is bunded with another stamp set in the Sale-A-Bration catalog.

I started by embossing a Garden Green card front using the new Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered a panel of the Berry Delight DSP to a Blackberry Bliss mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the matted DSP to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I wrapped a piece of Blackberry Bliss 3/8″ Striped Ribbon around the panel and tied a bow.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Sweet Strawberry stamp set in Blackberry Bliss Ink. I stamped the outline of the flowers from the Sweet Strawberry stamp set in Blackberry Bliss Ink above and below the sentiment. I stamped the flower fill images in Blackberry Bliss Ink, stamped off twice, over the outline image. I stamped the outline leaf image from the Sweet Strawberry stamp set in Garden Green Ink by the flowers. I stamped the leaf fill image from the Sweet Strawberry stamp set in Garden Green Ink, stamped off once, over the outline image. I cut the stamped panel out using the Stitched Shapes Dies. I adhered it to a scallop square mat, which I cut from a panel of Blackberry Bliss cardstock using my Layering Squares Dies, using Stampin’ Seal.

I adhered the square to the card front over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the card front to a Blackberry Bliss card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Pastel Pearls to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Sweet Strawberry stamp set in Blackberry Bliss Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel. I stamped the outline flower images from the Sweet Strawberry stamp set in Blackberry Bliss Ink on the panel corners. I stamped the fill images in Blackberry Bliss Ink, some stamped off once and some twice. I stamped the leaf outline image from the Sweet Strawberry stamp set around the flowers in Garden Green Ink. I stamped the leaf fill image in Garden Green Ink, stamping off once, over the outlined image. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Garden Green mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Blackberry Bliss card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the flower and leaf images from the Sweet Strawberry stamp set on the envelope front the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of the Berry Delight DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today, I hope you liked my card. Items I used for my card today will be available January 5, 2021 from the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog. Happy Stamping!!

WHISPER WHITE CARDSTOCK PRODUCTS- AVAILABLE WHILE SUPPLIES LAST

Stampin’ Up! announced this information related to the Whisper White paper products late last evening:

Whisper White has been a Stampin’ Up! staple for so long. We love it and we know you love it, too. We are sad to announce that the supplier’s mill producing our Whisper White cardstock has permanently closed due to impacts from the COVID-19 pandemic. Unfortunately, we weren’t given much notice on this closure. This means that the technology unique to this particular supplier is now unavailable to us and we can no longer offer our Whisper White cardstock and related products, such as Whisper White Note Cards & Envelopes. Please note that this won’t affect any of our other cardstocks, this only affects Whisper White.

We know Whisper White has a huge fan base; we’re big fans, too! And we are crushed that it’s going away. Even though this decision was out of our hands, rest assured that we jumped right into action to find the best replacement paper possible. We have dedicated many hours to source and test alternative cardstock options from several suppliers to find the perfect fit that still maintains the Stampin’ Up! quality you know and trust. We are happy to share that we have found a winner for our new cardstock, Basic White!

The quality of our new Basic White was thoroughly tested by our quality assurance and product teams. It also tested very well with demonstrators and concept artists who gave it a huge thumbs up. We believe in the quality of the new Basic White cardstock and we know it will become your new crafting staple!

What does this mean for you?

With Whisper White going out of production, this means a number of Whisper White products will be affected. Below is a list of all products that will be replaced with our new Basic White cardstock. These items are now available while supplies last with an order limit of 2 per item per order.

  • Whisper White 12″ x 12″ (30.5 x 30.5 cm) Cardstock (124302)
  • Assorted Memories & More Cards & Envelopes (149710)
  • Whisper White Note Cards & Envelopes (131527)
  • Whisper White 3″ x 3″ (7.6 x 7.6 cm) Envelopes (145829)
  • Whisper White 8-1/2″ x 11″ Cardstock (100730)
  • Whisper White 8-1/2″ x 11″ Thick Cardstock (140272)
  • Whisper White Medium Envelopes (107301)

Our new Basic White products will become available to purchase as soon as we have them in stock. This means that some Whisper White and Basic White products may be available at the same time. Additionally, due to the nature of sourcing, some Basic White products may not be available before the Whisper White products sell out. Please know that we are working on getting these products available to you as fast as possible.
