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.

I’m also offering a 2021-2022 Annual Catalog Designer Series Paper Share, click HERE for information. Here’s my card for today.

I used the new Stampin’ Up! Hand-Penned Petals Photopolymer Stamp Set for my card today.

I started by adhering a panel of the Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper to a Pale Papaya card base using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered a strip of the Hand-Penned DSP to the center of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Hand-Penned Petals stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink. I stamped the floral image from the Hand-Penned Petals stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the panel and colored it in using my Flirty Flamingo, Pale Papaya and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image out using my Scalloped Contours Dies.

I adhered a piece of the 1/2″ Pale Papaya Woven Ribbon in a ‘Z’ form on the card front using a little Stampin’ Seal to hold it in place. I adhered the artwork over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a Pale Papaya Genial Gem to the artwork.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Inspired Thoughts Cling Stamp Set in Soft Succulent Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the floral image from the Hand-Penned Petals stamp set off to the side of the panel in Tuxedo Black Ink and colored it in using my Flirty Flamingo, Pale Papaya and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Soft Succulent mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Pale Papaya card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the floral image from the Hand-Penned Petals stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink and colored it in the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of the Hand-Penned DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. Items used for today’s card will be available to purchase on May 4th. Please drop me a line if you would like a copy of the new catalog. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Art Gallery 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 Color Challenge. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s amazing projects. Here is my card using this weeks colors.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Art Gallery Bundle along with the Fine Art Floral Designer Series Paper.

I started by adhering a Petal Pink card front from the Fine Art Floral DSP to a Pool Party card base using Stampin’ Seal.

I cut another panel of the Fine Art Floral DSP using the new Scalloped Contour Dies. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Dressed To Impress Photopolymer Stamp Set in Versamark Ink. I immediately sprinkled it with my Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I adhered the panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the flower image from the Stampin’ Up! Art Gallery Photopolymer Stamp Set in Flirty Flamingo, stamping off once. I stamped the detail flower image in Poppy Parade Ink over the Flirty Flamingo. I stamped the stem image from the Arty Gallery stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink. I cut the images out using the Floral Gallery Dies. I adhered the stem to the scalloped panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and the flower on top of the stem using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I tied a double bow using the gold trim from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack and adhered it to the stem using a Glue Dot. I added a few Gold Glitter Enamel Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Happy Thoughts Cling Stamp Set in Mossy Meadow Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the flower image from the Art Gallery stamp set in Flirty Flamingo Ink, stamping off twice, on the side of the panel. I stamped the detail flower image in Poppy Parade Ink, stamping off once, over the Flirty Flamingo. I stamped the stem image from the Art Gallery stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink, stamping off twice, under the flower. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Pool Party mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Pool Party card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the flower image from the Art Gallery stamp set in Flirty Flamingo Ink stamping off twice, on the envelope front. I stamped the detail flower image over the Flirty Flamingo in Poppy Parade Ink stamping off once. I stamped the stem image below the flower in Mossy Meadow Ink, stamping off twice. I adhered a panel of Fine Art Floral DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Flowers of Friendship Sneak Peek

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers. We’re halfway through the week and on our way to the weekend. We’re having a beautiful spring week here so far. I’m just loving this weather.

I have a sneak peek for you today of products that will be in the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog. If you are one of my customers, as soon as I get my catalogs in the mail I will be shipping them out. If you’d like to be a customers and would like a catalog, please send me an email at creativestampingdesigns@gmail.com and I will get one out to you. Here’s my card for today.

I used the new Stampin’ Up! Flowers of Friendship Cling Stamp Set and the new Scalloped Contours Dies. I also used all the new 2021-2023 In-Colors for my card.

I started by embossing a Basic White card front using the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to a Basic White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the flower image from the Flowers of Friendship stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image in using my Fresh Freesia, Pale Papaya, Polished Pink and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image out using my new Scalloped Contour Dies. I think these might just be my new favorite dies.

I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I tied a small bow using the new Evening Evergreen 3/8″ Open Weave Ribbon and adhered it to the flower stem using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Flowers of Friendship stamp set in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the row of flower image from the Flowers of Friendship stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink and colored them in using my Fresh Freesia, Pale Papaya and Polished Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Basic White 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 floral image from the Flowers of Friendship stamp set on the card front and the single flower image on the envelope flap in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the images in using my Fresh Freesia, Pale Papaya, Polished Pink and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends Markers.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card. Items I used for today’s card will be available to purchase on May 4th. Happy Stamping!!
