Stampin’ Up Bloom and Grow Quick and Easy Card

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  How is everyone doing today?  I got a sneak peek at the upcoming Holiday catalog yesterday.  I’m definitely in trouble.  One of the best benefits of being a demonstrator is that you get to see the catalogs early.  Right now is the perfect time to join.  You get to purchase $155.00 worth of Stampin’ Up supplies for only $99.00 AND you receive a $10.00 coupon code to use next month for an order.  See more details below.  If you are interested in joining, please contact me for more information.

For today’s card I have a Quick and Easy card for you.  I used just the basics for my card, Stamp, Ink and Paper.  Here’s my card.

I started with a Thick Whisper White card base and adhered a panel of Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Bloom & Grow Photopolymer Stamp Set in Pretty Peacock Ink.  I edged the strip using my Blackberry Bliss Stampin’ Write Marker.

I adhered the sentiment strip to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the floral image from the Bloom & Grow stamp set in Pretty Peacock, stamping off 3 times, in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the Bloom & Grow stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink over the floral image.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the floral image from the Bloom & Grow stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink on the envelope front stamping off once.  I adhered a panel of Perennial Essence DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my Quick & Easy card and will give it a try.

Happy Stamping!!

Stampin Up Beautiful You Birthday Card

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s weekend?  I had to work all weekend, but Saturday night we went to a Somerset Patriots baseball game and had a bonus since it was a fireworks night.  I haven’t been to a game in a while and it was a lot of fun.  The ball field is only about 10 minutes from my house.  The fireworks afterwards were a lot better than I expected

For today’s card I made a pretty quick one for you using one of my all time favorite sets.  Here’s my card.

I absolutely love these colors together.  These are the colors from Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge #318 which I played along with.

My design came from the Fab Friday Challenge #167 which I also played along with.  Here is their sketch.

I started with a Petal Pink card front and embossed it using my Eyelet Lace Embossing Folder.  I adhered the card front to a Petal Pink card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the image from the Stampin’ Up Beautiful You Cling Stamp Set in Crumb Cake Ink.  I stamped the water mark image from the Beautiful You stamp set on top of the image of the woman in Mint Macaron Ink.  I took a strip of Calypso Coral cardstock and cut it out using my Stitched Lace Dies and then adhered it to the back of the Whisper White panel using Snail.  I adhered the artwork to the embossed card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue

On a panel of Calypso Coral cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Beautiful You stamp set in VersaMark Ink.  I immediately sprinkled it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I cut the sentiment out using the
Stitched Nested Label Dies and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added 3 Pearl Basic Jewels to the top of the artwork.

On the inside I stamped the dancing woman image from the Beautiful You stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink, stamping off twice, in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the Beautiful You stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink on top of the dancing woman image.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a  Mint Macaron mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Petal Pink card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card off I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the woman image from the Beautiful You stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped over the woman image with the water mark image from the Beautiful You stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink.  I adhered a panel of petal pink Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper in petal pink 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 Daisy Lane Birthday Card and Buying Special

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and that some of you were lucky enough to have a 4 day weekend. At the end of my post today I have a little special going on, so don’t forget to scroll down.

For today’s card I used the Stampin’ Up Daisy Lane Bundle for my card.  Here’s my card.

My design was inspired by the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #395.  Here is their sketch.

I also joined in with Watercooler Wednesday Challenge #228.  Here is their theme.

I started by adhering a panel of the gorgeous Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper to a Petal Pink card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered another strip of the Perennial Essence DSP across the center of the card front using Snail.

I cut a circle out or Whisper White cardstock using the largest circle from the Layering Circle Dies.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Beauty Abounds Cling Stamp Set in Blackberry Bliss Ink on the top of the circle.  I stamped the fern image from the Stampin’ Up Daisy Lane Cling Stamp Set 3 times in Old Olive Ink, stamping off once, below the sentiment on the circle.  On a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the smaller daisy from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Blackberry Bliss Ink twice and punched them out using the Medium Daisy Punch.  I adhered the daisies together using a Glue Dot and then adhered it to the center of the stamped circle using a Stampin’ Dimensional.

Using the Leaf Punch, I punched out 3 leaves from Old Olive Vellum paper from the Perennial Essence 12X12 Vellum Cardstock.  I adhered the leaves using Glue Dots under the punched daisy.  I adhered a Perennial Essence Floral Center in the center of the daisy.

On the inside I stamped the stem from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Old Olive Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock, stamping off 3 times.  I stamped the daisy image from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Blackberry Bliss Ink on the stem stamping off 4 times.  I stamped the sentiment from the Daisy Lane stamp set over the stamped image in Blackberry Bliss Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Blackberry Bliss mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Petal Pink card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card, I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the fern image from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Old Olive Ink on the bottom front stamping once in full strength and then stamped off once.  I stamped the daisy image from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Blackberry Bliss Ink between the fern.  On the envelope flap I adhered a panel of the Perennial Essence DSP.

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

Stampin’ Up Daisy Lane Delight Thank You Card

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  How is you week going?  I spent over 6 hours on the beach yesterday and it was simply wonderful.  The air was in the 90’s and the water was a chilly 70.  I found lots of sea glass, which seems to be a lot harder to find these days.  The only bad thing was the sand was so hot It burned our feet, other than that, it was a perfect day.  I can’t wait to go back again real soon.  Is anyone making plans for the 4th of July?

I have another quick and easy card for you today where I let the Designer Series Paper do most of the work for me.  Here’s my card.

I have combined the Stampin’ Up Daisy Lane Cling Stamp Set and the Stampin’ Up  Daisy Delight Cling Stamp Set on my card today.  I started by adhering a panel of Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper to a Mossy Meadow card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped the sentiment from the Daisy Delight stamp set in VersaMark Ink on the bottom of the Mossy Meadow panel. I immediately sprinkled it with Shimmer White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I wrapped a piece of the Mossy Meadow Linen Thread from the Magnolia Lane Ribbon Combo Pack around the card front twice.  I adhered the card front to a Mossy Meadow card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the smaller daisy from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Flirty Flamingo Ink 3 times.  I punched the daisies out using the Medium Daisy Punch.  I adhered the daisies together using Glue Dots and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a Perennial Essence Floral Center to the daisy.

On the inside I stamped the stem from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink, stamping off 3 times, on a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the daisy from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Flirty Flamingo Ink on the stem stamping it off twice.  I stamped the sentiment from the Daisy Delight stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink in the center of the Whisper White panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Mossy Meadow card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the stem from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped the daisy from the Daisy Lane on the stem in Flirty Flamingo Ink  I adhered a panel of the Perennial Essence 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 Bloom and Grow Birthday Card

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  Hope you all had a wonderful weekend.  Did anyone do anything fun?  We had our team meeting and this was the first one I was able to attend in person.  We had lunch together and had a lot of fun stamping and talking.  I got to meet some new team members, which is always fun.

For today’s card I used another one of the new stamp sets from the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.  It’s the Stampin’ Up Bloom & Grow Photopolymer Stamp Set.  It comes as a bundle, but I only used the stamp set today.  Here’s my card.

My card joined in with the Freshly Made Sketches challenge #391.  Here is their sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of the beautiful Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper to a Petal Pink card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped one of the floral images from the Bloom & Grow stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I colored the image in using my Balmy Blue, Flirty Flamingo, Old Olive, Petal Pink and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the sentiment from the Bloom & Grow stamp set in Blueberry Bushel Ink above the floral image.

I adhered the artwork to a panel of Petal Pink cardstock using Snail then I adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the floral image from the Bloom & Grow stamp set in Petal Pink Ink on the bottom of a Whisper White panel.  I only colored in a few of the flowers and leaves on the inside using my Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the sentiment from the Bloom & Grow stamp set in Blueberry Bushel Ink in the center of the Whisper White panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Petal Pink card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card off I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the floral image from the Bloom & Grow stamp set in Petal Pink Ink on the envelope front and colored it in the same way I did for the inside of the card.  I adhered a panel of Perennial Essence 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!!

Stampin’ Up Floral Essence Sneak Peek

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers.  Well the weekend is here ready or not.  Has anyone made any fun plans?  I’m really hoping, in between working, to supervise getting some of my flowers in the ground.  I’m still with 1 arm and can’t seem to get the digging down properly yet.  I’ve mastered quite a bit 1 handed, most importantly card making.

So I have a little sneak peek for you today.  I’ve used a new stamp set coming in the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.  If you don’t have a demonstrator and would like a catalog, drop me a line and I’d be happy to send one out to you.  Here’s my card for today.

I’ve used a tiny bit of old and a whole lot of new on my card.  I’ve also played along with Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge #314.  Here’s their sketch.

I started with a panel of the soon to retire Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper and adhered it to a Blueberry Bushel card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered a panel of the gorgeous new Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper to a mat of Blueberry Bushel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the matted DSP to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Itty Bitty Birthdays Cling Stamp Set in Blueberry Bushel Ink to the left of the matted DSP.

On a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the flower from the new Stampin’ Up Floral Essence Photopolymer Stamp Set in Blueberry Bushel Ink.  I stamped the inside of the flowers in Crushed Curry Ink.  I stamped the leaf images from the same stamp set in Mossy Meadow and Old Olive Inks.  I colored the flowers in using my Balmy Blue Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I colored the leaf image in using my Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I fussy cut the flowers and the smaller leaf image out using my Paper Snips.  I punched the larger leaf image out using my Leaf Punch.  I arranged the flowers and leaves how I liked them on the card front and adhered them with Glue Dots and Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped a couple flowers from the Floral Essence stamp set on the bottom corner of a Whisper White panel in Blueberry Bushel Ink using the masking technique.  I stamped the leaves from the same stamp set in Old Olive Ink and the flower centers in Crushed Curry Ink.  I colored the flowers in using my Balmy Blue Stampin’ Blends Markers and the leaves in using my Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set in Blueberry Bushel Ink in the center of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Blueberry Bushel card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the flowers from the Floral Essence stamp set on the envelope front and colored them in the same as I did for the card.  I adhered a panel of the Perennial Essence DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card.  These products will be available on June 4th if you are interested in them.  It’s truly a beautiful suite.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! has posted their retiring lists for the 2018-19 Annual Catalog and 2019 Occasions Catalog.  Head over to my online store to pick up those retiring items now!  They’re only available while supplies last from now through June 3!

A few notes about the lists:

  • Due to high demand for retiring stamp sets, these items will have guaranteed availability until May 24; all other products are not guaranteed and are available while supplies last only.
  • Order deadline to get the retiring products:  June 3, 2019; 11:50 PM (MT)

Please note, some of the bundle items may be carrying over into the new 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.  However, the bundle pricing will go away, so get them while you can at the discounted price!!

Stampin’ Up! Retirement List Clarification

It looks like every single stamp set from the 2018-19 Annual Catalog is being retired and that isn’t the case, the carryover sets are being transitioned to Cling Mount.

The stamp sets offered in clear-mount or wood-mount in the 2018–2019 annual catalog that are carrying over into the 2019–2020 annual catalog will be offered in clear-mount and/or wood-mount until existing inventory has been depleted or until June 4, 2019 (whichever comes first).

If the inventory is depleted, you will be notified of the automatic switch to cling when placing an order for that stamp set. This means that you may end up purchasing select cling stamp sets (in carryover artwork) before they can be ordered from the catalog!  All carryover rubber stamp sets will be available in cling medium only (with the exception of background stamps in North America) beginning June 4, 2019.

You can download copies of the full retiring lists in PDF Form here:
