Stampin’ Up! Pressed Path of Petals CAS

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers. How is everyone’s week going?  We’re halfway through the week already and before you know it the weekend will be here.

I have a quick and easy card for you today using the beautiful Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper.  Here’s my card.

I started by cutting a panel of Rococo Rose cardstock using the Stitched Lace Die.  I adhered it to the back right side of a panel of Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper using Snail.  On the back left side of the DSP I adhered a thin strip of Rococo Rose cardstock.  I adhered the panel to a Crumb Cake card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To the left of the artwork I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Beautiful You Cling Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink.  I added a piece of Rococo Rose 5/8″ Scalloped Trim Ribbon which I tied in a knot and adhered it to the artwork using a Glue Dot.

I adhered the card front to a Crumb Cake 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! A Big Thank You Photopolymer Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink in the center of a Very Vanilla panel.  I stamped the leaf image from the Stampin’ Up! Path of Petals Photopolymer Stamp Set in Mossy Meadow Ink on the bottom of the panel.  I stamped the flower image from the Path of Petals stamp set in Rococo Rose Ink on the leaf image.  I stamped the small flower image from the Path of Petals stamp set in Blueberry Bushel Ink on the leaf and flower image.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Rococo Rose mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Crumb Cake card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I stamped the leaf image from the Path of Petals stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink on the bottom front of the envelope.  I stamped the larger flower image from the Path of Petals stamp set in Rococo Rose Ink over the leaf image.  I stamped the smaller flower image from the Path of Petals stamp set in Blueberry Bushel Ink over the leaf and flower images.  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! Beautiful Day Pressed Petals CAS

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends.  How is everyone’s week going?  This Friday is Valentine’s Day, is anyone doing anything fun?  It’ll be a stay at home night for me.  Maybe make a nice dinner, but I definitely will not be going out to dinner.  I did make cute little valentines for all my cashiers and co-workers.  I love giving them little treats every now and then just to let them know how much I appreciate them.

I made a really quick and easy card for you today.  I used one of my favorite 2018-2020 In-Colors, Blueberry Bushel.  This is one of my favorite shades of blue, it’s such a rich color.  The 2018-2020 In-Colors will be retiring at the beginning of June.  If there is one or all the colors that you like, don’t wait to get them.  The paper and ink are the first things to sell out.  Here’s my card for today.

I started by cutting a band for the card front in Blueberry Bushel cardstock using the Detailed Bands Dies.  I adhered it to a Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper card front using Glue Dots.  I folded the ends of the band around the back of the DSP and adhered them with Glue Dots.  I just love when the Designer Series Paper does most of the work for you.  This paper is so gorgeous and realistic looking.

I adhered the card front to a Blueberry Bushel card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  On a scrap of Shimmer White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Very Versailles Cling Stamp Set in Blueberry Bushel Ink.

I cut the sentiment out using the oval die from the Detailed Bands Dies.  I adhered the sentiment to the center of the band on the card front using Snail.

On the inside I stamped the script image from the Very Versailles stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink on the top left of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the cascading leaves image from the Very Versailles stamp set on top of the script image in Pear Pizzazz Ink.  I stamped the sentiment from the Very Versailles 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 script image from the Very Versailles stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped the cascading leaf image from the Very Versailles stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on top of the script.  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!!

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers.  I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and enjoyed your time with family and friends.  We celebrate on Christmas Eve, so our Christmas Day was a very quiet relaxing day.  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 Color Challenge.  Be sure to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects. Here’s my card using our colors.

Here is my card using these colors.

I started by adhering a panel of Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper to a Soft Suede card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I cut a panel of Rococo Rose cardstock using the Heirlooms Frame Dies and 3D Embossing Folder.  On a small panel of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Woven Heirlooms Cling Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using the largest die from the Layering Ovals Dies.  I stamped the stem image from the Stampin’ Up! Path of Petals Photopolymer Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink, stamping off once, over the sentiment on the oval.  I stamped the flower image from the Path of Petals stamp set in Rococo Rose Ink, stamping off once, on the stem.

I adhered the sentiment oval to the back of the Rococo Rose frame using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the frame to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Path of Petals stamp set in Soft Suede Ink in the center of a Very Vanilla panel.  I stamped the stem image from the Path of Petals stamp set in Soft Suede Ink, stamping off once, to the bottom of the Very Vanilla panel twice.  I stamped the flower image from the Path of Petals stamp set in Rococo Rose Ink, stamping off once, on the stem image.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Rococo Rose mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Soft Suede card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I stamped the stem image from the Path of Petals stamp set in Soft Suede Ink, stamping off once, on the front of the envelope.  I stamped the flower image from the Path of Petals stamp set in Rococo Rose Ink on the stem image on the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of the Pressed Petals Specialty DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Path of Petals for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to Fun Fold Friday.  How was everyone’s week?  Hope it was a productive one.  I had off yesterday and I went non stop from early morning till late at night getting things done.  I did some of my fall cleaning and decorating, washed windows and changed curtains.  I even had some time to make a card for today.

I have a really quick and easy fun fold card for you today.  I’m not quite sure what the name of today’s fun fold card is.  I want to call it a corner fold card.  Take a look.

I started with a Rococo Rose card base which is 4 1/4″ X 11″.  I scored at the 5 1/2″ and then made a little mark 1 1/4″ from the score line on the front of the card.  I scored from that mark to the bottom right corner and folded the corner to the front.  To give it a little texture, I embossed the card front using my Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder.

Using the largest scallop square from my Layering Squares Dies, I cut the Pear Pizzazz panel.  I took the 2nd largest square from the Layering Squares Dies and cut my Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper out.  Using my Stampin’ Sponge, I sponged the edges of the Pear Pizzazz scallop square with Pear Pizzazz Ink.  I adhered the Pressed Petals Specialty DSP panel to the scallop square using Snail.  Using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, I adhered the Mossy Meadow panel to the card base lining up the corners of the square with the fold line.  I adhered the matted DSP to the Mossy Meadow panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Path of Petals Photopolymer Stamp Set in Mossy Meadow Ink.  I made the strip into a banner and sponged the edges with Pear Pizzazz Ink.  I adhered the banner under the scallop square using Glue Dots.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Path of Petals stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink in the center of a Very Vanilla panel.  I stamped the leaf image from the Path of Petals stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on the side of the panel.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to the inside of the Rococo Rose card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I stamped the leaf image from the Path of Petals stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink.  I stamped the flower image from the Path of Petals stamp set in Rococo Rose Ink on the leaf image.  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 Pressed Petals Thank You

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Did anyone do anything fun?  I had to work, my usual, but it was a beautiful weekend here.  I was able to get a nice walk in and enjoy the weather.  Leaves are starting to fall here, and I have to admit, I’m not ready yet.

For today I have a pretty quick and easy card for you where I let the Designer Series Paper do all the work for me.  I was inspired by a team member of mine, Shirley G., who made this card and I thought it would be perfect for my Stamp Camp class.  You can see her card here.   Here is my card.

I started by adhering a panel of the Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper to a Rococo Rose mat using Snail.  I cut the sentiment out of Mossy Meadow card stock using my Well Written Dies and adhered it to the center of the matted panel using my Fine Tip Glue Pen.

I adhered a panel of Rococo Rose and Pressed Petals Specialty DSP to a Mossy Meadow card base, both on angles going opposite ways, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the matted artwork to the center of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I tied a knot using my Rococo Rose 1/2″ Scalloped Lined Ribbon and adhered it to the bottom of the artwork using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Well Said Cling Stamp Set in Mossy Meadow Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I adhered a strip of the Pressed Petals Specialty DSP to the bottom of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Mossy Meadow card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Tp finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the leafy image from the Stampin’ Up Path of Petals Photopolymer Stamp Set in Mossy Meadow 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. Tomorrow is Blog Hop Day, so try to stop by and hop around to see everyone’s projects. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up Path of Petals Thank You

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers.  How has everyone’s week been?  We’re almost to the weekend and for some you get a 3 day weekend (which I personally think it should always be that way).  Hope you are starting to make some fun plans.  I can’t believe that Sunday is the 1st of September, but you know what that means right.  September 4th the new 2019 Holiday Catalog goes live.  Does everyone have a mile long list like I do?

For today’s card I didn’t use anything from the upcoming catalog.  I let some Designer Series Paper do most of the work for me.  Here’s my card.

I started by embossing a Rococo Rose card front using the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered it to a Merry Merlot card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered a panel of the Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper to the center of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Using the Well Written Dies I cut out the ‘thank you’ in Rococo Rose cardstock.  The die actually said ‘thanks’, but I cut off the ‘s’ at the end.  I adhered the sentiment to the center of a panel of Pressed Petals Specialty DSP using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the DSP to a Pear Pizzazz mat using Snail.

I adhered the matted artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Pearl Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Path of Petals Photopolymer Stamp Set in Pear Pizzazz Ink in the center of a Very Vanilla panel.  I stamped the leafy stem image from the Path of Petals stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink  in the center of the Very Vanilla panel stamping off once.  I stamped the flower image from the Path of Petals stamp set in Rococo Rose Ink on the stems stamping off once.  I adhered the Very Vanilla 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 Very Vanilla Envelope.  I stamped the leafy stem image from the Path of Petals stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped the flower image from the Path of Petals stamp set in Rococo Rose Ink on the stems.  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.  Don’t forget to stop back tomorrow for Fun Fold Friday.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up Rustic Retreat Waterfront Fun Fold Card

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to Fun Fold Friday.  How was everyone’s week?  Are you ready for the weekend?   I hope so because it’s here.

I have another fun fold card for you today that I’ve never done before.  I’ve seen this fold, but never attempted it.  I would love to hear from you if you’d like me to continue with my Fun Fold Fridays. Please leave a comment or you can email me at creativestampingdesigns@gmail.com.

Have you ever had one of those stamp sets that you just always seem to have trouble with?  Mine is the Stampin’ Up Waterfront Photopolymer Stamp Set.  I don’t know why I have so much trouble making cards with it.  Well I decided that today was the day to conquer that.  This artwork of my card took me 6 tries before I got it the way I liked it, but I refused to give up.  I was determined to make the scene on my card the way I pictured it.  You can be sure this card is going to someone special that saves my cards.  Here’s my card.

I joined in with Watercooler Wednesday Challenge #234.  Here is their theme.

I started with a Garden Green panel and scored it at 3/4″ along the 5 1/2″ side.  When you fold the panel you should have a 4 1/4″ X 5 1/2″ panel.  With the scored edge to the left and the paper lined up on my Grid Paper, I made tiny marks at the 2 3/4″ marks on the 3 sides.

I cut from the sides 2 3/4″ marks to the edge across from the scored edge 2 3/4″ mark as shown below.

Using my Layering Squares Dies I placed the die so that there was equal space from both edges to the die on my Garden Green panel and ran it through my die cutting machine.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Rustic Retreat Cling Stamp Set on the top of the Garden Green panel in Soft Suede Ink.  I stamped the bear image from the Rustic Retreat stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the bottom of the Garden Green panel.

I adhered the cut Garden Green panel to a Thick Very Vanilla card base, on the back of the opening edge, using Tear & Tape Adhesive.

I adhered a panel of the woodgrain paper from the Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper on the Thick Very Vanilla card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I closed the Garden Green panel over the card front and placed the smaller square die from the Layering Squares Dies centered inside the die cut making sure it was equal all the way around and used a Post-It not to hold it in place.  Opening the card up, I ran it through my die cutting machine to cut out the smaller square.  I made a tiny slit in the card front so that the corner of the Garden Green panel could slip in to stay closed.

This is where I had fun doing all the artwork that took me multiple tries because of my OCD.  I stamped the cabin image from the Rustic Retreat stamp set in Soft Suede Ink in the center of a Very Vanilla panel.  I colored the cabin in using my Cajun Craze, Crumb Cake, Gray Granite, Old Olive and Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the mountain images from the Waterfront stamp set behind the cabin in Gray Granite and Smoky Slate Inks stamping off once.  I stamped the small trees from the Rustic Retreat stamp set in Garden Green Ink in front of the mountains.  I stamped the water image from the Waterfront stamp set in Balmy Blue Ink below the cabin.  I stamped the sand image from the Waterfront stamp set between the water and cabin in Crumb Cake Ink.  I stamped the taller trees from the Waterfront stamp set on either side of the cabin in Shaded Spruce Ink.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Itty Bitty Birthday’s Cling Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink below the artwork.   I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Garden Green mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Thick Very Vanilla card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I stamped the cabin image from the Rustic Retreat stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped the tree image from the Rustic Retreat stamp set in Garden Green Ink on the envelope front also.  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 Fun Fold card. I tried my best to explain what I did, please feel free to contact me if you have any questions. Happy Stamping!!
