Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Does anyone have any plans for the weekend yet? I’ll be working all weekend between both jobs. Today I’m finally going to get to work in my garden. My yard has been sprayed for those annoying bugs, so hopefully I won’t get eaten alive again. I’m very excited about redoing my garden in case you can’t tell.

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 Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers Cling Stamp Set along with In Good Taste and Hand-Penned Designer Series Papers for my card today.

My inspiration for today’s card came from my sunflower plants I have growing in my backyard.

I started by stamping the large sunflower image from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Basic White Cardstock. I colored the image in using my Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image out using my Sunflower Dies. From a panel of Basic White cardstock I cut the middle Scalloped Contour Die. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Through It Together Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom corner of the die. I stamped the larger leaf image from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink 3 times. I colored the leaves in using my Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blends Markers and cut them out using my Sunflower Dies.

I adhered a panel of In Good Taste DSP to the front panel of the Smoky Slate card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the sunflower to the scalloped die using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals only on the left side of the panel. I adhered the leaves under the sunflower using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I scored and folded a smaller Highland Heather card base and adhered a panel of Hand-Penned DSP using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Through It Together stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the small sunflower image from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image in using my Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Mint Macaron and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Highland Heather mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the 3/4″ fold of the small card base behind the layered panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the layered panel to the inside of the Smoky Slate card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. The Highland Heather will tuck behind the scalloped die to hold the card closed. I added a couple Bumblebee Trinkets to my card using Glue Dots.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the small sunflower image from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I colored the image in using my Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Mint Macaron and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of Hand-Penned 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. If you do CASE this card, please feel free to post it in the comments of my Facebook page under this post. I’d love to see your take on the card. 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.

July-December 2021 Mini Catalog Designer Series Paper

I’m offering a Designer Series Paper share from the Stampin’ Up! July-December 2021 Mini Catalog and I’d love to have you join!!  I’m placing my share order early on August 3 and I’m going to use the expedited shipping option so I should be able to have the shares cut, bundled and back out to you during the week of August 9.

How my shares work:  I order full packs of all of the Designer Series Papers listed below, I cut them into 6″ x 6″ pieces (or 6″ x 12″ pieces for double shares) and give you one panel of each design from each pack on the list.  I pack up the paper in a cellophane bag and mail it back out to you just as quickly as I can!  Shares give you a good working sample of all of the papers so that you can decide which ones to order in full packs!

Here are the Designer Series Paper Shares that I am offering from the new Mini Catalog!

New Designer Series Paper Share – $25.00 plus $5.00 for 1st Class Mail shipping

You will receive one 6×6 sheet of each design from the following new DSP packs (the number behind the name indicates how many 6×6 sheets of that paper pack you will receive):

  • Painted Christmas – 6

Double DSP Share – $50 + $7.75 Shipping by Priority Mail – if you’d like double shares of the designer paper, that’s fine too.  I’ll cut the designer paper sheets into 6×12 so that you’ll be able to get 3 full A2 size card fronts from each sheet (except for the Gingerbread & Peppermint, Cute Halloween and Kraft 6″ × 6″, you’ll get double sheets of those since they’re already precut).

Anyone is welcome to join in my share (please note, I can only ship to addresses within the US).  If you’d like to join, either complete the form below or email the following information to creativestampingdesigns@gmail.com

Stampin’ Up! Create With Friends for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Does anyone have any plans for the long 4th of July weekend yet? I will be at Ace all day Saturday working and both places are closed for the 4th on Sunday so I have off, YAY!!!

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 Stampin’ Up! Create With Friends Photopolymer Stamp Set, the Stampin’ Up! Hand-Penned Petals Bundle and the Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper.

I started by scoring the card base at 4 1/4″ & 5 1/2″. I then scored from the bottom of the 4 1/4″ score line to the top right corner and folded the panel in. I adhered the left binder side together using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered a strip of the Hand-Penned DSP to the left side of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I cut a panel of Basic White cardstock using the largest die from the Scalloped Contours Dies. I moved the die down 3 scallops and cut again to make a square. I adhered a panel of Hand-Penned DSP to the scallop square using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the layered panel to a Mint Macaron mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the panel just to the bottom triangle of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Create With Friends stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink. I edged the sentiment using my Blushing Bride Stampin’ Write Marker. On a thin scrap of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Create With Friends stamp set in Blushing Bride Ink and adhered it to the top of the larger sentiment using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Genial Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Hand-Penned Petals Photopolymer Stamp Set in Mint Macaron Ink on a Basic White panel. I adhered the panel to a Mint Macaron mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Mint Macaron card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I cut the detailed floral die from from a panel of Blushing Bride cardstock using the Penned Flowers Dies. I adhered the die cut to the inside panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals, placing it on the corner to hold the easel open.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the large floral image from the Hand-Penned Petals stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the Hand-Penned DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Color and Contour Pastels

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. We’re halfway through the week and halfway through the month already. Days are just flying by.

Today I have another card that we made at our Inkin’ Krew team meeting on Sunday. This card used the daisy type flower image from the Stampin’ Up! Color & Contour Bundle. Here’s my card for today.

This card was designed by another one of my talented team members Tara Beth. Another gorgeous design. For this one we got to play with the new Soft Pastels Assortment on page 126 of the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog.

I started by cutting a panel of the Beauty of The Earth Designer Series Paper using the largest die from the Scalloped Contour Dies and adhering it to a Night of Navy mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to a Soft Saffron card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I cut a panel of So Saffron cardstock using the 3rd largest die from the Scalloped Contour Dies. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Color & Contour Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink in the center of the die. I adhered the scalloped die to the center of the card front using Stampin’ Seal.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the flower image from the Color & Contour stamp set 4 times in Basic Gray Ink. I cut the images out using the Scalloped Contour Dies. I colored each of the flowers using a different color from the Soft Pastels Assortment and I blended them using my Blending Brushes. I adhered 2 of the flowers using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and 1 using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few gems Silver & Clear Epoxy Essentials.

On the inside I cut a panel of the Beauty of The Earth DSP and Night of Navy cardstock using the scallop edge die from the Scalloped Contour Dies. I adhered the 2 together using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the scalloped edge to a panel of Basic White cardstock using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I stamped the sentiment from the Color & Contour stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on the Basic White panel. I adhered the 4th flower to the top of the panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the Basic White panel to the inside of the So Saffron card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the flower image from the Color & Contour stamp set 3 times on the envelope front in Basic Gray Ink. I adhered a panel of the Beauty of The Earth DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you like the card we made at our team meeting. It was fun playing with the Soft Pastels Assortment, it was a different way to color images. Stampin’ Up! has so many options for coloring, pick your favorite and get started. Happy Stamping!!

Changes To The Upcoming July-December Mini Catalog And Second Sale-a-bration


Stampin’ Up! has shared the following update with us related to the upcoming July-December Mini Catalog and second Sale-a-bration this year.  With the global shipping delays, they will be moving the start dates for those two publications back by one month.  Here are the details from Stampin’ Up!:

We’ve recently been made aware that, due to the current global shipping crisis tied to the COVID pandemic, we are not likely to receive the majority of product inventory for the upcoming July–December 2021 Mini Catalog or July–August 2021 Sale-A-Bration in time for the catalog launches. After careful consideration we have decided to push the launches of both publications back by one month to allow time for inventory to be received.
 
Change Details

  • The July–December 2021 Mini Catalog will in effect become the August–December 2021 Mini Catalog (though the title of the publication will not change).
    • Demonstrator Preorder: July 1, 2021 – August 2, 2021
    • Customer Sales Period: August 3, 2021– January 3, 2022
  • July–August 2021 Sale-A-Bration will in effect become August–September 2021 Sale-A-Bration.
    • Demonstrator Pre-earn: July 1, 2021 – August 2, 2021
    • Customer Earning Period: August 3, 2021 – September 30, 2021

I’m so happy that Stampin’ Up! made the decision to move the catalog timing back by a month in order to minimize those frustrating backorders and unavailable items!  Let me know if you have questions about this.  Can’t wait to see the upcoming Mini and Sale-a-bration Catalogs this summer!  And as always, I’ll get those catalogs mailed out to you just as quickly as I can once I get them in early July!

The first Stampin’ Up! value statement is this: we care about people first. What does that look like? Caring about people first means treating others with kindness, respect, and equal consideration. It means working together towards a common goal, helping each other through life’s challenges, and celebrating one another’s accomplishments. It means including others, even when we disagree, have contrasting life experiences, or simply see things differently. Caring about people first is our greatest strength!

In honor of this value—and in the spirit of World Diversity Day—we’d like to celebrate what makes us unique through what brings us together: creativity! The United Through Creativity Digital Download features inclusive, multicultural, and multilingual sentiments and illustrations that represent the multiple markets Stampin’ Up! engages with. And, it’s FREE for all!

Stampin’ Up! Color and Contour Blending

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends. How has everyone’s week started off? I hope you are all having a productive one.

Today’s card is one that we made at our Inkin’ Krew Team Meeting on Sunday. We made 3 cards all using the Stampin’ Up! Color & Contour Bundle. Here’s the first card we made.

This card was designed and demonstrated by Linda, one of my team members. Isn’t it gorgeous.

We started by adhering a panel of Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper to a Highland Heather card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock we used our Blending Brushes and added Highland Heather Ink on the top, Blushing Bride Ink in the middle and Mint Macaron Ink on the bottom. We stamped the flower image from the Stampin’ Up! Color & Contour Photopolymer Stamp Set in Versamark Ink on top of the blended colors and immediately sprinkled it with Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder. I set it using my Heat Tool. I cut the image out using the middle scalloped rectangle from the Scalloped Contours Dies. I cut another one of the same scalloped rectangles out of a panel of Highland Heather cardstock. I adhered the artwork to the top of the Highland Heather rectangle using Stampin’ Seal and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Color & Contour stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I cut the sentiment out using the Stitched Rectangle Dies. I adhered the sentiment to a Highland Heather mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel just under the artwork on the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I added a few Pearl Basic Jewels to the card front. I tied a double bow using the White Twine from the Bakers Twine Essential Pack and adhered it to the stem of the flower with a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from Color & Contour stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the flower image from the Color & Contour stamp set in Highland Heather Ink, stamped off once, on either side of the sentiment . I adhered the Basic White panel to a Highland Heather mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Highland Heather card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the flower image from the Color & Contour stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the Hand-Penned DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you like the card that Linda designed and will give it a try. If you are interested in joining us at our next team meeting, I’d love to have you on my team. We have an awesome team and it’s a great group of people.

Stampin’ Up! Sweet As A Peach for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? It’s been crazy here this week with the weather, hot, cool, smoldering, stormy then cool again. It’s supposed to drop to the 50’s this weekend. Dose anyone have any plans? I’ll be working all day tomorrow and since the last day of the month is Monday, Memorial Day and the store is closed, I have to go into the office to work on Sunday.

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 Stampin’ Up! Sweet As A Peach Bundle along with the You’re A Peach Designer Series Paper for my card.

I started by cutting the outside edge of the card base using the Basic Borders Dies. I cut a panel of Ombre Specialty Paper using the same Basic Borders Dies and adhered it to the front or the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Using the Scalloped Contours Dies I cut a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the stem/leaves image from the Stampin’ Up! Sweet As A Peach Photopolymer Stamp Set in Granny Apple Green Ink. I stamped the small peach image from the Sweet As A Peach stamp set in Petal Pink Ink on the stems. I stamped the small peach image again on a small panel of Basic White cardstock and cut them out using the Peach Dies. I stamped the sentiments from the Sweet As A Peach stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink on the bottom of the scalloped panel. I adhered one of the cut peaches to the stem using a Glue Dot and the other 2 using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered the scalloped frame to the front of the card base on top of the Ombre Specialty Paper using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Blue Adhesive-Backed Gems to the card front.

On the inside I adhered a panel of You’re A Peach DSP to the inside of the Petal Pink card base using Stampin’ Seal. On a small panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the larger peach image from, the Sweet As A Peach stamp set in Petal Pink Ink. I stamped the stem/leaves on the peach in Granny Apple Green Ink. I stamped the sentiment from the Sweet As A Peach stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink on the Basic White panel. I adhered the Basic White panel 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 large peach image from the Sweet As A Peach stamp set twice on the envelope front in Petal Pink Ink. I stamped the stem/leaves image in Granny Apple Green Ink. I adhered a panel of You’re A Peach 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. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up Shaded Summer Birthday

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends. How has everyone’s week started off? Hope you all have a productive one. We dropped from the mid 90’s Sunday to 70 yesterday. There was actually a little chill in the air.

I’m a little obsessed, I’ll admit it. I can’t stop using the 2021-2023 In-Colors and the Scalloped Contour Dies. I can’t get enough of them. Here’s my card for today.

I used another new set from the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog the Stampin’ Up! Shaded Summer Cling Stamp Set.

I joined in with the Fab Friday Color Challenge #214.

I started by stamping the floral image from the Shaded Summer stamp set on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I colored the stamp using my Pale Papaya and Soft Succulent markers from the 2021-2023 In-Color Stampin’ Write Markers. I cut the image out using my Scalloped Contours Dies. I stamped the sentiment from the Shaded Summer stamp set on the bottom of the panel in Soft Succulent Ink.

I adhered a panel of the Evening Evergreen 2021-2023 In-Color Shimmer Vellum to an Evening Evergreen card base using Stampin’ Seal. I cut 2 rectangles using my Stitched Rectangle Dies from a panel of Fresh Freesia cardstock. I adhered 2 panels of Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper to the Fresh Freesia mats using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the 2 panels to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a small bow I tied using the Soft Succulent 3/8″ Open Weave Ribbon to the artwork using a Glue Dot. I added a few Polished Pink 2021-2023 In-Color Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Shaded Summer stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the floral image from the Shaded Summer stamp set on the bottom of the panel which I colored using my Pale Papaya and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Write Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Soft Succulent mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Evening Evergreen card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the floral image from the Shaded Summer stamp set which I colored using my Pale Papaya and Soft Succulents Stampin’ Write Markers on the envelope front. 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. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Fresh Freesia Color and Contour

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone’s weekend going? Hope you are all making the best of it and having some fun.

Today’s card uses some of the 2021-2023 In-Colors. I’m really loving these new colors this year. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Color & Contour Bundle for my card along with the beautiful 2021-2023 In-Color Shimmer Vellum Paper.

I played along with Festive Friday Challenge #084. I have Green, Die Cuts & Flowers.

I started by stamping the outline flower image from the Stampin’ Up! Color & Contour Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the flower fill image in Fresh Freesia Ink over the outline image. I cut the flower out using the Scalloped Contours Dies. I cut the middle scallop frame from Scalloped Contours Dies from the Basic White panel. Using my Blending Brushes, I added some Soft Succulent Ink on the scalloped frame. I stamped the sentiment from the Color & Contour stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom of the frame. I adhered the flower to the frame using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I embossed a panel of the 2021-2023 In-Color Shimmer Vellum Paper using the Pretty Flowers Embossing Folder. I adhered the Vellum panel to a Soft Succulent mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue just behind where I was putting the frame. I adhered the matted card front to a Fresh Freesia card base using Stampin’ Seal.

I adhered a length of Soft Succulent 3/8″ Open Weave Ribbon to the card front using Glue Dots. I adhered the artwork over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few 2021-2023 In-Color Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Love What You Do Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I stamped the flower image from the Color & Contour stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink to the side of the sentiment. I stamped the flower fill color in Fresh Freesia Ink over the outline image. I adhered a strip of the 2021-2023 In-Color Shimmer Vellum Paper to the bottom of the panel using Stampin’ Seal only on the sides. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Soft Succulent mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Fresh Freesia card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the outline flower image from the Color & Contour stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I stamped the flower fill image in Fresh Freesia Ink. I adhered a panel of the 2021-2023 In-Color 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! Tasteful Touches CAS

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. We’re halfway through the week and heading towards the weekend.

It’s time for another inspiration challenge for The Card Concept. For the next 2 weeks we have a Loads of Lavender challenge. Here is my card that was inspired from the challenge photo.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Tasteful Touches Cling Stamp Set . I was inspired by the colors in the photo along with the gingham bow (even though mine isn’t black) for my clean and layered card today.

I hope you will take a moment to visit The Card Concept and join us this week to play along with our challenge #153. How are you inspired by this photo?

I started by adhering a panel of In Good Taste Designer Series Paper to a Gray Granite card base using Stampin’ Seal.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the pitcher image from the Stampin’ Up! Country Home Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. If this is a set that you like, it will be retiring as of May 3rd. I colored the image in using my Gray Granite Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the leafy image from the Tasteful Touches stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink above the pitcher and colored the leaves in using my Highland Heather Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I cut the image out using my Scalloped Contours Dies. These are my absolute new favorite dies in case you can’t tell. I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I tied a small bow using the gingham ribbon from the Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack and adhered it to the pitcher using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Tasteful Touches stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the leafy image from the Tasteful Touches stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink on the corners of the panel and colored the leaves in using my Highland Heather Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Soft Succulent mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Gray Granite card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the leafy image from the Tasteful Touches stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink on the envelope front and colored the leaves in using my Highland Heather Stampin’ Blends Markers. 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! Pansy Patch for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers. Welcome to Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop. It’s the 2nd Tuesday of the month so that means Blog Hop Day!! If you are starting with me, be sure to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects. If you’ve hopped over from Karen Finkle’s blog, welcome to my blog and thank you for stopping by. The theme this month is “For Girls/For Ladies”.  We can interpret this however we want.  I decided to make a Mother’s Day Card using a new bundle coming in the 2021-2020 Annual Catalog. Here’s my card for today.

I used the new Stampin’ Up! Pansy Petals Bundle for my card today.

I started by adhering a panel of the Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper to a Thick Basic White card base using Stampin’ Seal.

I cut a panel of Basic White cardstock using the new Scalloped Contours Dies and stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Pansy Patch Photopolymer Stamp Set in Gorgeous Grape Ink on the top of the die cut panel. Using my Pansy Dies, I cut a panel of Basic White, Gorgeous Grape, Highland Heather, Just Jade and Shaded Spruce cardstocks. I adhered the detailed Shaded Spruce Leaves to the solid Just Jade Leaves and the detailed Gorgeous Grape pansy pieces to the Basic White pansy using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. Using my Blending Brush, I added a little Highland Heather Ink to the edges of the Highland Heather petal pieces then adhered them to the back of the pansy using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the small Highland Heather pansy bud piece to the Basic White bud piece and the Shaded Spruce piece to the Just Jade stem using Multipurpose Liquid Glue then adhered the pansy bud to the back.

I adhered the assembled flower to the scalloped die using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added one of the adorable Bumblebee Trinkets by the pansy bud using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Strong & Beautiful Cling Stamp Set in Gorgeous Grape Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the small detailed pansy image from the Pansy Patch stamp set in Gorgeous Grape Ink on the bottom of the panel twice. I stamped the pansy center in Bumblebee Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Gorgeous Grape mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Thick Basic White card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the detailed pansy image from the Pansy Patch stamp set in Gorgeous Grape Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the Pansy Petals DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for visiting by my blog today, I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Now that you’ve seen my card, be sure to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects.
