Stampin’ Up! Well Written Wedding Card

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers.  How has everyone’s week been going?  The weekend is right around the corner again and that means only 2 day’s till World Card Making Day.  Our team will be doing Facebook Live videos all day on Saturday starting at 9am and going until 9pm.  I hope you can join us, the link is listed below.  I will be doing my live video at 4pm, this will be my 1st Facebook Live.

For today’s card a friend asked me to make her a wedding card for this weekend.  I’ve seen cards made with the Puzzle Pieces Dies and I thought I’d put my own spin on it.  Here’s my card.

I played along with the Fab Friday Sketch Challenge #173.  Here is their sketch.

I started by embossing a Whisper White panel using the Scripty 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to a Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I cut out 2 of the puzzle pieces using the Puzzle Pieces Die from a scrap of Thick Whisper White cardstock.  I wanted to make sure the puzzle pieces were a little sturdier, that’s why I used the thick cardstock.  I colored one of the pieces in using my Dark Basic Black Stampin’ Blends Marker.  I colored 3 Rhinestone Basic Jewels using my Dark Basic Black Stampin’ Blends Marker and added them to the puzzle piece, so it looked like buttons.  The other puzzle piece I left white and added Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the top to look like a necklace.

I cut the heart out of Sparkle Glimmer Paper using the Stitched Be Mine Dies.  I cut the ‘bride and groom’ sentiments out of Silver Foil Sheets using the Well Written Dies.  I adhered the puzzle pieces to the center of the heart using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the bride on the top of the heart and groom on the bottom of the heart using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered a piece of Silver 3/8″ Metallic-Edge Ribbon to the back of the heart using a Glue Dot.  I adhered the heart to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Dandelion Wishes Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the heart image from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Lovely Photopolymer Stamp Set in Petal Pink Ink on either side of the sentiment.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Basic Black mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the heart image from the Forever Lovely stamp set on the envelope front and envelope flap in Petal Pink Ink.

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

Stampin’ Up Everything Amazing Birthday Card

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers.  How are you doing today?  The weekend is almost here again, hope you are starting to make some fun plans.

For today’s card a friend of mine asked me to make a card for a 50th birthday.  Here’s what I came up with.

I joined in with Sunday Stamps Challenge #208.  Here is their sketch.

I also played along with TGIF Challenge #219.  Here are their colors.

I started by embossing a panel of Purple Posy card stock using the Scripty 3D Embossing Folder.  I then took a piece of the Seaside Spray Scalloped Lined Ribbon and cut it in half length wise.  I adhered a piece to the top and bottom of the embossed panel using Snail.  I adhered the embossed panel to a 2019-2021 In-Color 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper Rococo Rose card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered the DSP card front to a Rococo Rose card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the large sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Everything Amazing Photopolymer Stamp Set in VersaMark Ink.  I immediately sprinkled it with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I cut the sentiment out using the Stitched Rectangle Dies.

I stamped the 2 smaller sentiment from the Everything Amazing stamp set in Rococo Rose Ink on the lines from the large sentiment.  I stamped the floral image from Stampin’ Up Pocketful of Happiness Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the top corner of the rectangle.  I colored the floral image in using my Rococo Rose and Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and added 3 gold Metallic Pearls.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Itty Bitty Birthdays Cling Stamp Set in VersaMark Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I immediately sprinkled it with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I stamped the floral images from the Pocketful of Happiness stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the top and bottom 2 corners and colored them in using my Purple Posy,  Rococo Rose and Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Rococo Rose card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card, I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the floral image from the Pocketful of Happiness stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored them in the same as I did for the card.  I adhered a panel of the 2019-2021 In-Color 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 Daisy Lane Smile

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers.  How has you week been going?  The weekend is right around the corner.

I’ve used a few new items for today’s card.  I received my Stampin’ Up order from the new 2019-2020 Annual Catalog yesterday and I couldn’t wait to play with my new items.  Here’s my card.

I joined in with  couple challenges today.  First off I played along with Paper Craft Crew Sketch Challenge #339.  Here is their sketch.

Next I played along with Color Throwdown Challenge #546.  Here are their colors.

I started by embossing a Very Vanilla card front using the new Scripty 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the card front to a Calypso Coral card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a smaller panel of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Daisy Lane Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink.  I immediately sprinkled it with Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I stamped the fern image from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink, stamping off once, on the bottom of the panel.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Calypso Coral mat using Snail.

I adhered a strip of the new Pretty Peacock Noble Peacock Foil Sheet to the right side of the matted artwork using Snail.  I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  On a scrap piece of Very Vanilla cardstock, I stamped the medium daisy from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Calypso Coral 3 times.  I punched the daisies out using the new Medium Daisy Punch.  I adhered the daisies together using Multipurpose Liquid glue, then adhered them to the artwork using a Stampin’ Dimensional.  I added a few Night of Navy Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots to the top of the artwork and the center of the daisy.

On the inside I stamped the stem from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink, stamping off twice, on the left side of a Very Vanilla panel.  I stamped the smaller daisy image from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Calypso Coral Ink, stamping off once, on top of the stem.  I stamped the sentiment from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Night of Navy Ink  over the top of the daisy.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to the inside of the Calypso Coral cad base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I stamped the stem from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped the daisy from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Calypso Coral Ink on top of the stem.  I stamped the fern image from the Daisy Lane stamp set along the envelope flap, stamping off once.

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