Stampin’ Up! Queen Bee Birthday

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend? I hope you were able to do something fun. It was a gloomy one here in NJ.

Today’s card I played with one of my favorite sets from the new January-April 2023 Mini Catalog. I used it last Wednesday for my live and I think I had mentioned that I wasn’t sure I was going to like it alot. I do and I’ve been playing with it a lot. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Queen Bee Birthday 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Queen Bee Bundle, the Stampin’ Up! Inspired Thoughts Cling Stamp Set, Perfectly Penciled Designer Series Paper and Subtle 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my card today.

Stampin' Up! Queen Bee Birthday 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by adhering a panel of Perfectly Penciled DSP to a Basic White Thick card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered a panel of Subtle DSP to the card front on an angle using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I cut a panel of Basic White cardstock using the 2nd largest Deckled Rectangle Dies. I embossed the panel using the Hive 3D Embossing Folder. Using my Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker and the flicking technique, I added black ink on the embossed panel.

I stamped the flower and small bee images from the Stampin’ Up! Queen Bee Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I cut the images using the Queen Bee Dies. I colored the flowers only using my So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers. Using the Queen Bee Dies, I cut the hives from a panel of Basic Black cardstock and the leaves and flowers from a panel of So Saffron cardstock. I adhered the floral image and small bee to the embossed panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiments from the Queen Bee stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I cut the sentiment out using the Queen Bee Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the embossed panel overlapping the flowers a little using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the die cut leaves under the sentiment using Glue Dots. I adhered the hives around the sentiment using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the flowers using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added Classic Matte Dots to the flower centers. I tied a small bow using the Black & White 1/4″ Gingham Ribbon and adhered it to the sentiment using a Glue Dot. I adhered the embossed panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Inspired Thoughts stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the floral and bee images from the Queen Bee stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the flowers using my So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers. I randomly stamped the newsprint image from the Queen Bee stamp set in So Saffron Ink on the Basic White panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a So Saffron mat 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 floral and bee images from the Queen Bee stamp set on the envelope front in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the flowers using my So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of Subtle DSP to the envelope flap.

*********************************************************************************************************

In response to changing policies at Stampin’ Up – I’m adjusting my Ordering Gift policy as well.  I’m having to get a little more tough on the adding of Host codes when you place your order thru my Online Store.

Not to worry – you’re still going to get that $10 ordering gift for orders of $50 (before shipping & tax) or greater.  And the gift is still any 1 SU! product up to that $10 value – which includes some of our fun Host Sets!

But – if you DO NOT use the Host code for your orders of less than $150 (this is the RETAIL total before Shipping & Handling), then you’ll have two options:

  1. You’ll need to call Stampin’ Up! (1-800-Stamp-Up) and ask them to add it for you. They’re very helpful and will get it done quickly!  OR….
  2. If your order was over the $50 threshold but under $150, then…you’ll forfeit that $10 ordering gift and rewards – this is the Bummer Option – and I REALLY don’t want to do this, SO please remember to add my Current Host Code.

Stampin’ Up! Cheerful Basket Thank You with Video Tutorial

Good Friday morning my stamping friends welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? I had a bit of an exciting week starting off Monday. You’ll see below. Has anyone made any plans for the weekend yet? I’ll be working all day tomorrow and Sunday again.

So, before I get started with my card, last week I missed my live because we went to meet a puppy. It’s been a really sad house here since my Jasmine puppy passed. Unfortunately, the puppy was listed as a female lab/border collie mix and that was wrong. I was going to just wait until spring and this little cutie came to me. Meet Coraline. She’s a 10-week-old mix breed. I just ordered a DNA kit to find out what she is. She was listed as a lab/border collie mix, I think there might be more. I’ll let you know once I find out. She is such a good girl already. I’ve got her house broken, sleeping through the night and walking on a leash. She knows the sit command and touch already. She knows where my card making table is and runs ahead of me down the stairs to curl up while I make my cards.

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. 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 is my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Cheerful Basket Fun Fold 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Cheerful Basket Bundle along with the Stampin’ Up! Apple Harvest Cling Stamp Set and the Perfectly Penciled Designer Series Paper for my card today.

Stampin' Up! Cheerful Basket Fun Fold 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by coloring a panel of Perfectly Penciled DSP using my Flirty Flamingo and Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the panel to a Real Red mat and then to a Basic White Thick card base. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment, the apple, the cat and the butterfly images from the Stampin’ Up! Cheerful Basket Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the images in using my Daffodil Delight, Flirty Flamingo, Granny Apple Green, Real Red and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut all the images out using my Full Basket Dies.

Stampin' Up! Cheerful Basket Fun Fold 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

I cut the largest tag die from the Designer Tags Dies from a panel of Basic White cardstock. I cut one end of the tag off using my Paper Snips and embossed the tag using the Gingham Embossing Folder. Using my Full Basket Dies, I cut the detailed basket from a panel of Crumb Cake cardstock, the basket bands from Soft Suede cardstock, the leaves from Granny Apple Green Cardstock, the handle from Smoky Slate cardstock and the solid basket, napkin and apples from Real Red cardstock. I adhered the solid red basket behind the detailed basket using Stampin’ Dimensionals and trimmed the excess using my Paper Snips. I adhered the colored apples to the basket using Multipurpose Liquid Glue to the back of the basket. I adhered the basket to the embossed tag. I threaded a piece of Real Red ribbon from the Real Red & Garden Green 3/8″ Ribbon Combo Pack through the tag and tied it off. I adhered the tag to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Cheerful Basket Fun Fold 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

I adhered the cat next to the basket using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the butterfly to the top of the tag and the extra apples to the bottom of the card front. I cut the sentiment using my Stylish Shapes Dies and adhered it to the top of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Cheerful Basket Fun Fold 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

This next part is much easier to understand if you watch the video or my Instagram Reel. On the I folded the 5 1/8″ x 5 1/4″ panel of Real Red cardstock on the 1″ & 2″ score lines. I folded the 5 3/8″ X 5 1/4″ panel of Real Red cardstock on the 3 1/8″ score line. I adhered the 1″fold to the back of the 3 1/8″ fold using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the folded panel to the inside of the Basic White Thick card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Cheerful Basket Fun Fold 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

I adhered a colored panel of Perfectly Penciled DSP to the right inside of the card base. On a 2 3/8″ x 5 1/8″ panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the small apple branch from the Apple Harvest stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image using my Granny Apple Green, Real Red and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the panel to the center of the inner liner. On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the large apple branch image from the Apple Harvest stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image using my Flirty Flamingo, Granny Apple Green, Real Red and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers. I fussy cut the image using my Paper Snips (the dies for this stamp set will be available Sept 1st). I adhered the cut image to the center panel so that it would overhang. On the 3″ X 5 1/8″ panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment and the small flower image from the Apple Harvest stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the flower using my Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the panel to the left side of the inner liner.

Stampin’ Up! Lovely You 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 Karen Finkel’s blog, thank you for stopping by. This week we have a Color Challenge. Here is my card using this week’s Colors.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Lovely You Cling Stamp Set along with the Perfectly Penciled Designer Series Paper for my book fold card today.

These are our colors this week. I chose Polished Pink for my mystery color.

I started by coloring some of the flowers on a panel of the Perfectly Penciled DSP using my Polished Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the card front and strip to Polished Pink mats using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the binding side of the card front together using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Lovely You stamp set in Versmark Ink and sprinkled it with my Black Embossing Powder. I set it using my Heat Tool. I punched the sentiment out with my Double Oval Punch. I punched out a scalloped oval from a panel of Basic Black cardstock using the Double Oval Punch. I adhered the sentiment to the scalloped oval using Stampin’ Seal.

I adhered a piece of Polished Pink 3/8″ Open Weave Ribbon to the card front with a small amount of Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered sentiment over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Polished Pink 2021-2023 In-Color Opal Rounds to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Lovely You stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I adhered a strip of the Perfectly Penciled DSP to the side of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Polished Pink mat and then to the inside of the Basic Black card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of the Perfectly Penciled DSP to the envelope front and a panel to the envelope flap. I stamped the small flower from the Lovely You stamp set in Polished Pink 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. Now that you’ve seen my card, take a minute to hop through and see everyone’s projects today.
