Stampin’ Up! Hello Field Flowers

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends.  How is everyone doing today?  We’re already halfway through the week.  I just love these short weeks.

For today, I kind of have a triple time card, but not really if that makes sense.    I used some new items coming in the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog, some retiring colors and some items carrying over.  Here’s my card for today.

My colors were inspired by Fab Friday Color Challenge #190.  Here are their colors.

I started by embossing a Whisper White panel using the Parisian Flourish 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the panel to a Blushing Bride card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered a panel of the gorgeous new In Good Taste Designer Series Paper to a panel of Blushing Bride cardstock using Snail.  This DSP is just so pretty and looks so real.  Every time I pull it out I have to touch it because it looks almost 3D.  I adhered the matted DSP to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the stem image from the Stampin’ Up! Field of Flowers Photopolymer Stamp Set, (available June 3rd), in Call Me Clover Ink (retiring June 2nd).  I stamped the flower image from the Field of Flowers stamp set in Flirty Flamingo Ink on top of the stems.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips Photopolymer Stamp Set in Call Me Clover Ink on the bottom of the panel.  I adhered the artwork to a Blushing Bride mat using Snail.  I adhered the matted artwork to the DSP panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a scrap of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the small butterfly from the Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Gala Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink twice.  I stamped the fill color image from the Butterfly Gala stamp set in Pineapple Punch Ink on top of the outlined butterfly image.  I punched the butterflies out using the Butterfly Duet Punch, bent the wings forward and adhered them to the artwork using Glue Dots.  I added a few Melon Mambo Rhinestones from the Noble Peacock Rhinestones pack to my artwork.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Call Me Clover Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the stem image from the Field of Flowers stamp set in Call Me Clover Ink on the bottom of the panel.  I stamped the flower image from the Field of Flowers stamp set in Flirty Flamingo Ink on top of the stems.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Whisper White mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Blushing Bride card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the stem image from the Field of Flowers stamp set in Call Me Clover Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped the flower image from the Field of Flowers stamp set in Flirty Flamingo Ink on top of the stems.   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! Best Dressed Peaceful Moments

Good Monday morning my stamping friends.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Did anyone do anything fun?  We had a little bit of snow here, but by Sunday afternoon it was gone.  Every winter I ask for one big snow storm, not these little ones that the snow disappears in a day.  I like to get one storm with about 1-2 feet of snow, enough that I just have to stay in for a day and craft.  Last year we never got one, just extremely cold.

For today’s card I used some of the new Designer Series Paper from the 2020 January-June Mini Catalog and an embellishment from the Sale-A-Bration Catalog.  Here’s my card.

I joined in with TGIF Challenge #247.  Here is their theme.

I started by adhering a panel of the Best Dressed 6X6 Designer Series Paper to a Petal Pink mat using Snail.  I then adhered it to a Lovely Lipstick mat using Snail.

I embossed a panel of Whisper White cardstock using the Parisian Flourish 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the embossed panel to a Petal Pink mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I then adhered it to a Lovely Lipstick mat using Snail.  I wrapped a piece of Bermuda Bay Bakers Twine from the Sale-A-Bration Metallic Baker’s Twine & Sequins Combo Pack around the matted card front twice and tied a bow.  I adhered the card front to a Whisper White card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Moments Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using the Painted Labels Dies.  I edged the die cut sentiment using my Bermuda Bay Stampin’ Write Marker.  I adhered the sentiment to the artwork using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and added a Lovely Lipstick Happiness Blooms Enamel Dot to the sentiment.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Peaceful Moments stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I fussy cut some of the shoes from the Best Dressed 6 X 6 DSP and adhered them to the panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Lovely Lipstick 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 Best Dressed 6 X 6 DSP to the bottom of 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! Forever Lovely Blossoms for Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends. Welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by. 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 what I came up with for the sketch.

I started by embossing a Pool Party card front using the Parisian Flourish 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the embossed panel to a Pool Party  card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered 2 panels of Parisian Blossoms Specialty Designer Series Paper to Petal Pink mats using Snail.  I adhered the bottom panel to the card front on an angle using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the top panel straight on the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut a stitched heart using the Stitched Be Mine Dies out of a Pool Party panel.  I cut the Petal Pink scallop heart out of the Stitched Be Mine Dies.  I put the hearts together and flipped them over.  I added Stampin’ Dimensionals between the seams to hold the hearts together and adhered it to the card front.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Lovely Photopolymer Stamp Set in Pool Party Ink on a thin strip of Whisper White cardstock.  I adhered the sentiment strip on a Petal Pink mat using Snail and then to the card front overlapping the heart using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the heart and sentiment.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Forever Lovely stamp set in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the small flower image from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Blossoms Cling Stamp Set around the sentiment in Petal Pink Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Petal Pink mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Pool Party card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped a cluster of the small flower image from the Forever Blossoms stamp set in Petal Pink Ink on the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of the Parisian Blossoms Specialty 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! Forever Blossoms Wedding Sneak Peek

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  How has everyone’s week started off?  One week from today is Christmas Eve, yikes!!  Have you gotten you shopping done, baking done, cards mailed.  You all know I got my baking done.  My cards just went in the mail (here’s hoping they get to everyone on time).  Shopping??? Well, I haven’t really gotten any done.  I’ve sent my husband out to pick things up, guess that’s next on my list of things to do.  I’m really running out of time here.

For today I have another sneak peek for you using the Stampin’ Up! Forever Blossoms Bundle.  When I saw this set in the New 2020 Mini Catalog, I just knew I had to have it.  My son needs a wedding card for New Years Day, so I thought I’d play around with this bundle.  Here’s my card.

I started by embossing a Whisper White card front using the new Parisian Flourish 3D Embossing Folder.  I stamped the large floral image from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Blossoms Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink twice on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I colored the image in using my Purple Posy and Soft Seafoam Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the images out using the Cherry Blossoms Dies.

I adhered the cut images to the embossed Whisper White panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue letting them hang off on either side.  I cut the pieces that were hanging off the card front to make them even.  I adhered the card front to a Soft Seafoam mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I stamped the sentiment from the Forever Blossoms stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a thin strip of Whisper White cardstock.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered the matted card front to a Purple Posy card base using Stampin’ Dimensional.  I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the large floral image from the Forever Blossoms stamp set in Soft Seafoam Ink on a panel of Whisper White.  I stamped the sentiment from the Forever Blossoms stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink over the floral image in the center of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Soft Seafoam mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Purple Posy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I added a couple more Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the inside.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the large floral image from the Forever Blossoms stamp set in Soft Seafoam Ink on the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of Purple Posy 2019-2021 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.  Stamp Set, Dies and Embossing Folder used for today’s card will be available in just 2 1/2 short weeks. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Christmas Tidings With a Sneak Peek

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends.  How has everyone’s week started?  I hope everyone is doing well and finishing up all your cards to get in the mail early.  I’m having a class tonight and the ladies will be making a few more Christmas cards to add to their stash.  They may even be making this one.  Before my class though I will be gong in for surgery.  I’ve had trigger finger in both of my hands and I just couldn’t stand the pain anymore or the locking of my fingers.  I am having both hands operated on at the same time, I must be nuts.  I was told that I am to use my hands immediately, so I figured why not have a class.  The first thing my daughter said when I told her I was having surgery was ” so you’ll be ok to bake cookies this year then right?”.  You can see where her priorities are, lol.

So today I have a card that looks more involved than it really is.  Once you get the couple pieces cut out, it goes together really quick.  I was very hesitant about getting the Toile Tiding Designer Series Paper, I wasn’t sure I was going to like it.  It’s only 2 colors + Very Vanilla, Garden Green on one side and Real Red on the other.  I’m so happy I bought it, I really love the designs on this paper.  Once again I was inspired by one of my team members, Akiko, who made this card for our weekly blog hop a couple weeks ago.  Here is her card.  Here’s my take on it.

I started by cutting a circle in a Very Vanilla card front using the 2nd largest circle from the Layering Circles Dies.  As in my description, I have a little sneak peek of something coming January 3, 2020 in the new Mini Catalog (formally known as the occasions catalog).  I embossed the Very Vanilla panel using the new Parisian Flourish 3D Embossing Folder, isn’t it just gorgeous.  Using the largest scallop circle from the Layering Circles Dies, I cut a piece of Real Red cardstock.  I used the 2nd largest circle die from the Layering Circles Dies to cut the inside of the scallop circle to make a frame.  I adhered the scallop frame to the Very Vanilla card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I cut a panel of Toile Tidings DSP using the largest circle die from the Layering Circles Dies making sure to get the image I wanted in the circle.  I adhered the Toile Tidings DSP circle behind the Very Vanilla panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I wrapped a piece of Garden Green 3/8″ Double-Stitched Ribbon around the panel and tied a knot.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Garden Green card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a scrap of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Toile Christmas Cling Stamp Set in Garden Green Ink. I cut the sentiment out using the Christmas Cardinal Dies. I adhered the cut sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Real Red Toile Tidings Glitter Enamel Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Toile Christmas stamp set in Garden Green Ink in the center of a Very Vanilla panel.  I stamped the branch image from the Toile Christmas stamp set on either side of the panel in Garden Green Ink.  I colored the berries on the branches in using my Real Red Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Real Red mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Garden Green card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I stamped the branch image from the Toile Christmas stamp set in Garden Green Ink on the envelope front.  I colored the berries on the branch in using my Real Red Stampin’ Blends Marker.  I adhered a panel of the Toile Tidings DSP to the envelope flap.

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