Stampin’ Up! Harvest Meadow 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 Akiko Sudano’s blog, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we have a Sketch Challenge. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects. Here is my card using this weeks Sketch.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Harvest Bundle along with the Harvest Meadow Designer Series Paper for my card today.

Here’s our sketch for this week.

I started by adhering a panel of Harvest Meadow DSP to a Cinnamon Cider mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered card front to a Misty Moonlight card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the large cone flower image from the Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Harvest Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image in using my Cinnamon Cider, Fresh Freesia and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image out using my Harvest Dies. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Quiet Meadow Cling Stamp Set in Misty Moonlight Ink on the Basic White panel and punched it our using the Tailored Tag Punch. After I punched the sentiment, I stamped the small flower image from the Nature’s Harvest stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink, stamping off 3 times, over the sentiment. I cut the branch die from the Harvest Dies from a panel of Cinnamon Cider cardstock.

I adhered a panel of the Cork Specialty Paper to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the branch die to the Cork using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the cone flower and sentiment over the branch using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few 2020-2022 In-Color Square Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! In Your Words Host Cling Stamp Set in Misty Moonlight Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the small floral image from the Nature’s Harvest stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink, stamping off once, on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Cinnamon Cider mat using Stampn’ Seal and then to the inside of the Misty Moonlight card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the cone flower image from the Nature’s Harvest stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I colored the image the same as I did for my card. I adhered a panel of Harvest Meadow 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! Quiet Meadow part 2

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends. Welcome to the long holiday weekend, if you live in the US. This weekend is usually the close to the summer even though there’s 3 weeks left. I hope you have something fun planned for the weekend even if it’s to just take the day off and relax. We had a wonderful time yesterday at the Sunflower maze. Thousands of sunflowers and 2 mazes of them to walk through.. I’ll share some pictures shortly with you. I was even able to bring a few home with me along with a bag full of seeds that I can plant next summer and the following one. I can’t wait to see my own growing.

Today’s card is the 2nd part to the card I showed on Wednesday. You can see that card Here. The card from Wednesday and today’s shows how to used both the positive and negative of a die cut. This is another card we’ll be making at my class on Tuesday night. Here’s my card.

I used the Stampin Up! Quiet Meadow Bundle for my card today.

I started by randomly stamping the type image from the Quiet Meadow stamp set in Cinnamon Cider Ink on a Cinnamon Cider card front. I adhered the card front to a petal Pink card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I had the leaf die cut that I cut our for Wednesday’s card still. From a panel of Basic White cardstock I cut 2 of the dies from the Meadow Dies. I adhered the 3 die cut pieces to the Cinnamon Cider card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small piece of Petal Pink cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Quiet Meadow stamp set in Cinnamon Cider Ink. I cut the sentiment out using the Meadow Dies. I threaded a piece of Linen Thread through the sentiment tag and tied a bow. I adhered the sentiment to the bouquet using a Stampin’ Dimensional. I added a few Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Quiet Meadow stamp set in Cinnamon Cider Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the floral image from the Quiet Meadow stamp set in Cinnamon Cider Ink, stamping off once, on the side of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Petal Pink mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Petal Pink card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the typed image from the Quiet Meadow stamp set in Cinnamon Cider Ink along the bottom of the envelope. I adhered a panel of Subtle 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper 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! Quiet Meadow

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends. How are you all doing today? Hope your week has started out to be a productive one. I normally have Tuesday’s off, but today is the last day of the month so that means I have to go in. First I have to take my son for a follow up appointment for his broken leg. Fingers crossed that he can come off his crutches that he’s been on since June 10th. It’s been a long summer of transporting him around and it’s still going to be a while before he can drive.

I have a card class coming up next week, so I have to start designing cards for it. That’s the hardest part of having classes, coming up with new ideas. Luckily demonstrators have some resources to find new ideas. Here’s my card for today that we’ll be making next Tuesday night.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Quiet Meadow Bundle for my card today.

I started by adhering a Petal Pink card front to a Cinnamon Cider card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I colored a panel of Basic White cardstock using my Mossy Meadow and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends Markers in the center of the panel. Using my Meadow Dies, I cut the leafy die out of the colored section of the panel.

I adhered the Basic White panel to a Petal Pink card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. On a small panel of Cinnamon Cider cardstock I stamped the splotch image from the Stampin’ Up! Quiet Meadow Cling Stamp Set in Cinnamon Cider Ink. I cut the 2 butterfly dies from the Meadow Dies out of the stamped panel and adhered them to the Basic White panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Quiet Meadow stamp set in Cinnamon Cider Ink. I cut the sentiment out using my Meadow Dies and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Inspired Thoughts Cling Stamp Set in Cinnamon Cider Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the small flower images from the Quiet Meadow stamp set in Cinnamon Cider Ink around the sentiment. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Petal Pink mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Cinnamon Cider card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the tiny flower images from the Quiet Moment stamp set in Cinnamon Cider Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of 2020-2022 In-Color 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to the envelope flap.

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

Stampin’ Up! Daisy Garden Thinking of You

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. Happy Friendship Day and Happy August. I can’t believe it’s August already. I’m not ready to be winding down the summer yet, I need at least 3 more months. How is everyone’s weekend going? I had to go back to work twice yesterday since the mail was so late. The good thing was, I was all by myself in the office so I brought my dog with me to hang out. She wasn’t sure about the situation and was just sniffing and pacing all around the office. She did get some visitors and a lot of pets though.

Today’s card is similar to yesterday’s card, another CAS one. You have to let me know in the comments which card you like better. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Daisy Garden Cling Stamp Set along with the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper for my card today. This is such an awesome pack of DSP and you can get it until Tuesday on sale for 15% off, I may just have to order another pack. It’s one of my favorites.

I started by stamping the Daisy Garden image on a panel of In Good Taste DSP in Bumblebee Ink. I immediately sprinkled it with my Clear Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. Did you know that you can make any color embossing powder just by using our inks and the Clear Embossing Powder.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Quiet Meadow Cling Stamp Set on the top of the card front panel in Just Jade Ink. I adhered the card front to a Just Jade mat using Stampin’ Seal.

I wrapped a piece of the Just Jade 3/8″ Gingham Ribbon from the Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack around the panel and tied a bow. I adhered the card front to a Bumblebee card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Just Jade 2020-2022 In-Color Square Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the Daisy Garden image on a panel of Basic White cardstock in Bumblebee Ink, stamping off on scrap paper once. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Inspired Thoughts Cling Stamp Set in Just Jade Ink over the daisy image. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Just Jade mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Bumblebee card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I stamped the Daisy Garden image on the front of a Basic White Medium Envelope in Bumblebee Ink. 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! Quiet Meadow Wedding

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone doing today. We’re halfway through the week and on our way to the weekend already. These days are just flying by.

Today’s card I made for someone very special. One of the girls that I used to babysit for many years ago is getting married and her shower is this month. Unfortunately I can’t go, it’s in Tennessee and on the 31st of the month. I only have 2 mandatory days I have to be at work in the office, the last day and the 1st day. I did send a gift to her mother, my friend, for her along with wishing well gifts and this card. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Quiet Meadow Bundle for my card today along with the Bloom Where You’re Planted Designer Series Paper. This paper is one of the beautiful patterns on sale right now for 15% off. The colors I used for my card are actually the brides theme colors, olive and deep burgundy.

I started by adhering a panel of the Bloom Where You’re Planted DSP to an Old Olive card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the flower image from the Stampin’ Up! Quiet Meadow Cling Stamp Set. I colored the stamp using my Merry Merlot and Old Olive Stampin’ Write Markers. I stamped the flower twice full strength and then the center one is stamped off once. I cut the image out using my Stitched Rectangle Dies. I adhered the artwork to a Merry Merlot mat using Stampin’ Seal. I wrapped a piece of White Bakers Twine from the Bakers Twine Essential Pack around the layered panel twice and tied a knot. On a piece of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Quiet Meadow stamp set in Merry Merlot Ink and cut it out using my Meadow Dies. I threaded the sentiment onto the bakers twine and tied a bow. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut the half butterfly die from the Meadow Dies twice, once from a piece of White Vellum paper and once from a piece of Gold Glimmer Vellum paper (available in the July-August 2021 Mini Catalog on August 3rd). I adhered the 2 butterflies together at the body using Multipurpose Liquid Glue then adhered them to the card front using a Glue Dot. I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Many Happenings Cling Stamp in Merry Merlot Ink on a Basic White panel. I did this by placing my stamp on the Stamparatus and just inking the 1 sentiment using my Merry Merlot Stampin’ Write Marker and stamping it on the panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the flower image from the Quiet Meadow stamp set on the side of the panel, inking it up with my Merry Merlot and Old Olive Stampin’ Write Markers and stamping off once. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Merry Merlot mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Old Olive card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the flower image from the Quiet Meadow stamp set on the envelope front the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of Bloom Where You’re Planted 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!!

So that means $50 = 2 rewards, $100 = 4 rewards, $150 = 6 rewards etc. Click Here for details about my reward program.

Today’s card is one we will be making at my card class last night. I had fun stamping with a couple beginners. It reminded me of when I first started and had no idea what I was doing. I’ve made another clean and simple card using some DSP. Here’s my card for today.

I used the new Stampin’ Up! Quiet Meadow Cling Stamp Set along with the Hydrangea Hill Designer Series Paper.

I started by stamping the flower image from the Quiet Meadow stamp set in Gorgeous Grape Ink multiple times on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the splotch image from the Quiet Meadow stamp set in Gorgeous Grape Ink, stamping off once, randomly around the flowers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Gorgeous Grape mat using Stampin’ Seal.

On a panel of Hydrangea Hill DSP I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Sweet Strawberry Photopolymer Stamp Set in Gorgeous Grape Ink on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the DSP panel to a Basic White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered the matted artwork to the side of the sentiment using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Playing With Patterns Resin Dots to the top of the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Quiet Meadow stamp set in Gorgeous Grape Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the flower image from the Quiet Meadow stamp set in Gorgeous Grape Ink, stamping off once, on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the splotch image from the Quiet Meadow stamp set in Gorgeous Grape Ink, stamping off once, around the flower. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Gorgeous Grape mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Basic White card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the flower image from the Quiet Meadow stamp set in Gorgeous Grape Ink on the envelope front. I stamped the splotch image from the Quiet Meadow stamp set in Gorgeous Grape Ink, stamping off once, around the flowers. I adhered a panel of the Hydrangea Hill DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Quiet Meadow 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 Akiko, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we have a Sketch Challenge. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s amazing projects. Here is my card using this weeks sketch.

I used the new Stampin’ Up! Quiet Meadow Cling Stamp Set (available May 4th) for my card today. My colors are from the Fab Friday Challenge #212.

Here is our sketch for this week.

I started by adhering a panel of the 2019-2021 In-Color Designer Series Paper (retiring May 3rd) to a Terracotta Tile card base (retiring may 3rd) using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the flower image from the Quiet Meadow stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image in using my Flirty Flamingo and Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the news print image from the Quiet Meadow stamp set across the stem in Soft Sea Foam Ink. I adhered the artwork to a Basic White mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Quiet Meadow stamp set in Old Olive Ink and adhered it to an Old Olive mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using a Stampin’ Dimensional and a Glue Dot. I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Thanks Photopolymer Stamp Set in Old Olive Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the flower image from the Quiet Meadow stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink, stamping off once. I colored the image in using my Flirty Flamingo and Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the splotch image from the Quiet Meadow stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink around the flower. I adhered the Basic White panel to an Old Olive mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Terracotta Tile card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the flower image from the Quiet Meadow stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and colored it using my Flirty Flamingo and Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the splotch image from the Quiet Meadow stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink around the flowers. I adhered a panel of 2019-2021 In-Color DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Quiet Meadow Sneak Peek for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Are you ready for the weekend? I will not be working this weekend YAY!!! I have a virtual Stampin’ Up! On Tour on Saturday, which is like a mini convention. Sunday we have our team meeting so since it’s in the middle of the afternoon I couldn’t work, so I have the whole weekend off.

Before I get started I just wanted to remind you that my 2021-2022 Annual Catalogs will be in on Monday. If you are a customer of mine, I will be sending one out to you ASAP. If you’d like a copy of the catalog, send me a note at creativestampingdesigns@gmail.com and I will get one in the mail to you. Also, I am offering a Designer Series Paper share from the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog. If you are interested or want to know what a product share is, visit my blog from yesterday morning HERE.

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’s my card for today.

I used the new Stampin’ Up! Quiet Meadow Bundle for my card along with the Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper.

I started by adhering 4 panels of Pansy Petals DSP to 4 Basic White mats using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the matted panels to the 2 front side panels and the 2 back side panels of the Evening Evergreen card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the flower image from the Stampin’ Up! Quiet Meadow Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image in using my Fresh Freesia and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the sentiment from the Quiet Meadow stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink on the top of the panel. I stamped the newspaper print image from the Quiet Meadow stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink, stamped off once, across the stem of the flower image. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Soft Succulent mat using Stampin’ Seal. On a scrap of Pale Papaya cardstock I stamped the newspaper print image in Soft Succulent Ink, stamping off once. I cut 2 butterflies using my Meadow Dies from the stamped newsprint and 2 from a solid piece. I adhered the printed butterflies on top of the solid butterflies, just on the bodies, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered the butterflies to the side panels using Multipurpose Liquid Glue just on the bottom butterfly. I added a Bumblebee Trinket to the artwork using a Glue Dot.

On the inside (or back), I stamped the sentiment from the Quiet Meadow stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the flower image from the Quiet Meadow stamp set in the 2 corners of the panel in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the flowers in using my Fresh Freesia and Pale Papaya Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Soft Succulent mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the back of the Evening Evergreen card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the flower image from the Quiet Meadow stamp set twice on the envelope front in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the flowers in using my Fresh Freesia and Pale Papaya Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of the Pansy Petals 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 list of measurements are below if you’d like to stamp along while watching the video. You can watch my video on my Facebook page Here.

You can also view the video on my YouTube channel Here. Products I used for my card today will be available on May 4th. Happy Stamping!!
