Stampin’ Up! Painted Harvest Thank You

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers.  We’re on the down slide to the weekend, has anyone made any plans?  I’m hoping one weekend soon I can go apple picking.  Fall seems to be in full swing here and with fall comes apple picking for me.

For today I have, what I believe to be, a real country looking thank you card.  Here’s my card.

My colors were inspired by Color Throwdown Challenge #564.  Here are their colors.

My design is from Mojo Monday Sketch #524.  Here is their sketch.

I started by stamping the 1st part of the sunflower image from the Stampin’ Up! Painted Harvest Photopolymer Stamp Set in Crushed Curry Ink.  I stamped the 2nd part of the sunflower image from the Painted Harvest stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink.  I stamped the inside of the sunflower in Crumb Cake Ink.  I then fussy cut the sunflower using my Paper Snips.  Using my Layering Circles Dies, I cut out the scalloped circle that fit best around my sunflower in Soft Suede cardstock.  I adhered the sunflower to the scalloped circle using Glue Dots.

I adhered 2 pieces of the gingham Regals 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper, one in Cherry Cobbler and one in Crushed Curry,  to Soft Suede mats using Snail.  I adhered the Cherry Cobbler matted DSP to a Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the top of the Crushed Curry DSP I stamped the sentiment from the Painted Harvest stamp set in Versamark Ink on an angle.  I immediately sprinkled it with my Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I adhered the matted DSP to the Pressed Petals Specialty DSP card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I wrapped 2 pieces of the 1/4″ Copper Trim Ribbon around the card front and adhered it using a small amount of Snail on the back.  I adhered the card front to a Soft Suede card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the matted sunflower to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Painted Harvest stamp set in Soft Suede Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I adhered a strip of the Pressed Petals Specialty DSP to the left side of the panel using Snail.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Soft Suede card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the sunflower image from the Painted Harvest stamp set on the envelope front the same as I did for the card.  I adhered a panel of the Crushed Curry Gingham Regals 6 X 6 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 Beauty and Joy Birthday Card

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  How has your week started off?  We have had beautiful weather here.  I hate going into work when it’s this nice.

Today’s card is another one that we made at my last Stamp Camp.  I just wasn’t ready to make any fall cards, but I wanted to share one of my new stamp sets with the ladies.  Here’s my card.

I started by adhering a panel of the Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper on a Smoky Slate mat using Snail.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the flower pot image from the  Stampin’ Up Beauty & Joy Photopolymer Stamp Set (available Sept 4th)in Smoky Slate Ink.  I stamped the tree trunk image from the Beauty & Joy stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink above the flower pot.  I stamped the leaves from the Beauty & Joy stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on the tree trunk.  I randomly stamped the tiny flower image from the Beauty & Joy stamp set in Rococo Rose Ink  on the leaves.

Using my Banner Triple Punch, I punched the bottom of the cardstock to make a banner.  I adhered the banner to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I wrapped a piece of Linen Thread around the top of the card front twice and tied a bow.  I adhered the card front to a Merry Merlot card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Beauty & Joy stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the tiny flower image from the Beauty & Joy stamp set in Rococo Rose Ink around the sentiment.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pear Pizzazz mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Merry Merlot card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the flower pot with tree images from the Beauty & Joy stamp set on the envelope front the same way that I did on the card front.  I adhered a panel of the Pressed Petals Specialty 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 stamp set I used will be available for purchase September 4th.                        Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up Path of Petals for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to Fun Fold Friday.  The weekend is upon us already.  Has anyone made any plans for the weekend?  I’m really hoping to get in a few hours of craft time, I’m in desperate need of it.  I spent all day yesterday at the shore, it was simply gorgeous.  The air temp was perfect, not too hot, the water was a beautiful 76 degrees and I was able to relax listening to the waves crashing and the seagulls squawking.  It was high tide most of the day so it was a bit difficult finding shells and sea glass.  The ocean was actually very rough, it knocked my daughter right off her feet and she went tumbling in the waves.  She’s fine, just a little bruised up and it knocked the wind out of her.

Onto today’s card.  I have another Z-Fold card for you, but this time it’s turned around.  Here’s my card.

I started by scoring an Old Olive card base at 5 1/2″ and 2 3/4″ to make the Z-Fold.  I adhered a panel of the gorgeous Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper the front of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Path of Petals Photopolymer Stamp Set on a Very Vanilla Panel in Crumb Cake Ink.  I stamped the leafy image from the Path of Petals stamp set in Old Olive Ink, stamping off once, around the sentiment.

I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Rococo Rose mat using Snail.  I adhered the matted panel to the folded card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals only on the left side of the panel.

I adhered a panel of the Pressed Petals Specialty DSP to the inside right of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  This is the panel that you see when the card is closed.  On a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Path of Petals stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink.  I stamped the leafy image from the Path of Petals stamp set around the sentiment in Old Olive Ink stamping off once.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to the inside left of the Old Olive card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I stamped the leafy image from the Path of Petals stamp set in Old Olive Ink on the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of the Pressed Petals Specialty 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!!  Have a great weekend everyone.

Stampin’ Up Path of Petals Sympathy Card

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  How is everyone’s week progressing?

Today’s card is one that we all need at one time or another unfortunately.  A co-worker lost his wife last week at way too young of an age.  I spent many times with her since her daughter was one of my Girl Scouts  when she was in elementary school.  She was a fun woman to be around and I’m happy I had the opportunity to get to know her.  Here’s today’s card.

My card was inspired by CAS(E) This Sketch Challenge #329.  Here is their sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of the gorgeous Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper to a Blueberry Bushel card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered 2 smaller panels of the Pressed Petals Specialty DSP to 2 Blueberry Bushel mats using Snail.  I adhered the matted panels to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered a smaller panel of Blueberry Bushel cardstock to the right side of the card front under the 2 matted panels.  On a small piece of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Path of Petals Photopolymer Stamp Set in Blueberry Bushel Ink.

On the inside I stamped the 3 step floral image from the Path of Petals stamp set in Daffodil Delight, Mossy Meadow and Rococo Rose Inks on the left side of a Very Vanilla panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the Path of Petals stamp set in Blueberry Bushel Ink to the right of the floral image.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to the inside of the Blueberry Bushel card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I stamped the 3 step floral image from the Path of Petals stamp set the same as I did for inside of the card.  I adhered a panel of Pressed Petals Specialty 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 Path of Petals Thank You Card

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers  How is everyone doing today?  I’m taking a day off.  I’m heading to the beach for the day and I can’t wait.  A whole day of relaxing in the sun and walking along the water looking for shells.  It’s suppose to be a gorgeous day here, fingers crossed.

For today I have a very quick and easy card for you.  I’ve used the Stampin’ Up Path of Petals Bundle and the Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper.  I’ve let the DSP do most of the work for me today.  Here’s my card.

I started by adhering a panel of the Pressed Petals Specialty DSP to a Thick Very Vanilla card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small piece of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Path of Petals Photopolymer Stamp Set in Rococo Rose Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using the Petal Labels Dies.  I cut the mat for the sentiment out of a piece of Rococo Rose cardstock using the Petal Labels Dies.

I adhered the Very Vanilla oval to the Rococo Rose mat using Snail and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Path of Petals stamp set in Rococo Rose Ink on a Very Vanilla panel.  I stamped the 3 part floral images from the Path of Petals stamp set in Daffodil Delight, Merry Merlot and Old Olive Inks on the side of the Very Vanilla panel.  I colored the flowers in using my Rococo Rose Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to the inside of the Thick Very Vanilla card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I adhered a strip of the Pressed Petals Specialty DSP to the front of the envelope and 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!!
