Stampin’ Up! Brightest Glow CAS

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. I hope you weekend is going as planned. I’ll be at the dog bakery most of the day today.

I have a CAS card today using some of the new DSP from the July-December Mini Catalog and a new stamp set from the catalog. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Brightest Glow CAS 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Brightest Glow Cling Stamp Set along with the Lights Aglow 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my card today.

Stampin' Up! Brightest Glow CAS 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by adhering a panel of Lights Aglow DSP to a Brushed Metallic cardstock mat using Stampin’ Seal.

Stampin' Up! Brightest Glow CAS 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

I adhered the layered panel to an Evening Evergreen card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Brightest Glow stamp set in Versamark Ink. I sprinkled it with my Gold Embossing Powder from the Metallic Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.

Stampin' Up! Brightest Glow CAS 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

I cut the sentiment out using the Seasonal Labels Dies. I adhered a length of the Gold 3/8″ Shimmer Ribbon to the card front using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the sentiment over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Brightest Glow stamp set in Versamark Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I sprinkled it with my Gold Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I adhered 2 strips of the Brushed Metallic cardstock on the top and bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to the inside of the Evening Evergreen card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the sentiment from the Brightest Glow stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of Lights Aglow DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Friends Are Like Seashells Thank You

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend. It’s been hot and humid here still and I have no desire to be outside. I’ll be at the dog bakery today and since it’s been so hot, not many dogs have been coming in.

I had fun playing and building today’s card. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Friends Are Like Seashells Thank You 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Friends Are Like Seashells Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Rustic Harvest Designer Series Paper for my card today.

My design is from Try Stampin’ On Tuesday Challenge #567.

My colors are from Color Throwdown challenge #704. Although the colors don’t scream beachy, I made it work, I think.

Stampin' Up! Friends Are Like Seashells Thank You 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by adhering a panel of Rustic Harvest DSP to a Crumb Cake card base. I cut 9 of the smallest circles from the Layering Circle Dies from a panel of Basic White cardstock. I cut 9 of the smallest scalloped circles from the Layering Circle Dies from a panel of Basic Black cardstock. On the 5 Basic White circles I stamped the seaweed images from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Mossy meadow Ink, one stamped full strength and one stamped off once on scrap paper. On the remaining 4 circles I stamped the 2 smallest seashell images from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink.

Stampin' Up! Friends Are Like Seashells Thank You 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

I adhered the 9 Basic White circles to the 9 Basic Black scalloped circles using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the layered circles to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Friends Are Like Seashells Thank You 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I cut the sentiment out using my Seasonal Labels Dies. I adhered a piece of Black Baker’s Twine from the Baker’s Twine Essential Pack to the card front using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the sentiment over the twine using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Classic Matte Dots by the sentiment and a couple Pearl Basic Jewels on 2 of the seashell circles.

Stampin' Up! Friends Are Like Seashells Thank You 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the seaweed images from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink on the bottom of the panel, one stamped in full strength and the others stamped off once on scrap paper. I stamped the seashell image next to the seaweed in Crumb Cake Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Mossy Meadow mat and then to the inside of the Crumb Cake card base.

Stampin' Up! Friends Are Like Seashells Thank You 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the seaweed image from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Mossy Meadow ink on the bottom front of the envelope. I stamped the seashell image from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink next to the seaweed. I adhered a panel of the Rustic Harvest DSP to the envelope flap.

Today’s card is similar to one I did a while back at our monthly mystery stamping. One of the ladies that comes to my Stamp Camp Card Class asked if we could make that card, but since I’m doing a Christmas in July theme, I adjusted it to that. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin’ Up! Dahlia Days with Butterflies & Flowers Masks

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone’s weekend going? It’s been a wet one so far here and unfortunately, we got a bit of water inside this time. I’m done with the rain now, we need a long dry spell to happen. Our backyard is a sponge and when you walk the water splashes up. I worked all day yesterday and I have off today. I wasn’t sure why they gave me off Sunday again. Turns out I got a reminder that I have a team meeting and I must have requested off.

Today’s card I played with some retiring items again. Sometimes I just wish some of the things I like could stay on much longer. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Dahlia Days Cling Stamp Set along with the Butterflies & Flowers Layering Decorative Masks for my card today.

I started by placing the thin lined Butterflies & Flowers Layering Decorative Mask on a Basic White panel and securing it with Post-It tape. I added Fresh Freesia Ink using my Blending Brush. I turned the mask and lining up the thick lined flower on top and added Fresh Freesia Ink using my Blending Brush. I did this twice on the panel moving my mask.

I stamped the leaves and sprig images from the Dahlia Days stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink around the flowers. I embossed the panel using my Tasteful Textures 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered it to a Soft Succulent mat and then to the front of a Baic White Thick card base.

I adhered a length of Fresh Freesia 3/8″ Open Weave Ribbon on the card front. I stamped the sentiment from the Dahlia Days stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I cut the sentiment out using my Seasonal Labels Dies. I adhered the sentiment over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Fresh Freesia Loose Flower Flourishes to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Dahlia Days stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink on a Basic White panel. I adhered the Mask using Post-It tape and added Fresh Freesia Ink using my Blending Brush. I stamped the leaves and sprig images from the Dahlia Days stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink around the flowers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Soft Succulent mat and then to the inside of the Basic White thick card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I colored the flowers the same as I did for the card front on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of 2021-2023 In-Color 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper on the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. The Masks, Stamp Set and Embossing Folder will all be retiring and are only while supplies last. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Christmas Season to Remember CAS

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone’s weekend going? Has anyone started decorating yet? Have you started your holiday shopping? I’ve got a little of my decorating done and I got my baking shopping done. I also have quite a few gifts already, but I still have more to do.

Today’s card is another one that I stamped via zoom with my upline Jaimie last week. She designed a couple cards and we stamped together. It was really a lot of fun and I love her designs. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Christmas Season Bundle and the Stampin’ Up! Christmas To Remember Cling Stamp Set along with the Tidings of Christmas 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by adhering a panel of the Tidings of Christmas DSP to an Evening Evergreen card base.

On a panel of Evening Evergreen cardstock I stamped the leaf image from the Stampin’ Up! Christmas Season Photopolymer Stamp Set in Evening Evergreen Ink. I embossed the panel using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to the card front.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the holly leaves from the Christmas Season stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink and the berries in Cherry Cobbler Ink. I cut the holly and berries out using my Seasonal Labels Dies. I stamped the sentiment from the Christmas to Remember stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock and cut it our using my Seasonal Labels Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the holly and berries above the sentiment using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Evening Evergreen 2021-2023 In-Color Jewels to the sentiment.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Christmas to Remember stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the leaf image from the Christmas Season stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink on the top of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat and then to the inside of the Evening Evergreen card base.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the leaf image from the Christmas Season stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink on the top of the envelope front. I adhered a strip of the Tidings of Christmas DSP to the bottom of the envelope front and a panel 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! Christmas to Remember Tidings

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone doing today? Only 2 more days until Turkey day and the official start of the Christmas season, YIKES!! Before you know it we’ll be saying Happy New Year.

Today’s card I made with my upline Jaimie on a zoom call last week. During our last Sale-a-bration in August she had a little challenge to ‘Go For The Gold’. Anyone who signed on a demonstrator, she was going to have a little celebration. I signed on someone new so we had zoom lunch together and stamped some cards together. I really had a lot of fun spending some time with her. The only thing that would have made it better was to be sitting with her in person and stamping. Today I’m sharing one of the cards we made together.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Christmas To Remember Cling Stamp Set along with the Tiding of Christmas 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by embossing a Sahara Sand card front using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to a Sahara Sand card base.

I adhered 4 strips of the Tidings of Christmas DSP to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I cut the solid star using the Christmas Trimmings Dies from a panel of Cherry Cobbler cardstock. I cut the detailed star die using the Christmas Trimmings Dies from a panel of Basic White cardstock. I adhered the detailed die to the Cherry Cobbler die using tiny amount of Multipurpose Liquid Glue and adhered the layered star to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Christmas To Remember stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink. I cut the sentiment out using the Seasonal Labels Dies and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I tied a small bow using the Evening Evergreen 3/8″ Open Weave Ribbon and adhered it to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Tidings & Trimmings Photopolymer Stamp Set in Cherry Cobbler Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the star image from the Tidings & Trimmings stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink by the sentiment. I adhered a strip of the Tidings of Christmas DSP to the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to an Evening Evergreen mat and then to the inside of the Sahara Sand card base.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of Tidings of Christmas DSP to the envelope front and a panel 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! Christmas Season Snow Wonder

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends. I hope your weekend is starting out fun. Mine is for sure. I’m so happy to be here in Blue Ridge Georgia with my stamping friends. The place we’re staying in is absolutely gorgeous out in the wilderness. The craft room is just wonderful. I’d love to have something like this at home, I’d be in heaven.

The craft room across from the cabin
Inside the craft room.
Ladies busy at crafting

Gifts from Amy and Mary

One of the best parts of this retreat, other than the company and crafting of course, is that I don’t have to do a thing for a couple days. No cleaning, cooking or driving anyone around YAY!!! James is doing it all for us and he is an amazing cook. Here’s our first meal here ending with an amazing dessert.

Beef Lasagna, Roasted Broccoli, Balsamic-Glazed Green Beans & Mushroom & Cinnamon-Maple Squash
Salad with all the fixings
Chocolate Lava Cake w/ Vanilla Ice Cream

Today’s card is another card we made last weekend at our quarterly in per team meeting. This one was designed by our wonderful team leader Amy Koenders. I always love her style. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Christmas Season Bundle along with the Stampin’ Up! Snow Wonder Cling Stamp Set for my card today. I didn’t have a chance to finish my card at the meeting and I didn’t have the stamp set everyone else used, so I picked my own sentiments from a set that I had.

I started by embossing a small panel of Basic White cardstock using the Merry Melody 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the embossed panel to a Basic White mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Snow Wonder stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Basic White mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered embossed panel next to the sentiment using Stampin’ Seal.

On another panel of Basic White cardstock using the Stampin’ Up! Christmas Season Photopolymer Stamp Set, I stamped the holly leaf image in Soft Succulent Ink, the pine bough and sprig images in Evening Evergreen Ink, the berry stem image in Soft Suede Ink and the berries in Cherry Cobbler Ink. I arranged the die cut pieces the way I wanted them on the embossed panel adhering them with Glue Dots. I tied a bow using the Cherry Cobbler & Gold Metallic Ribbon and adhered it on top of the small collage using a Glue Dot. I tucked a few of the Gold Holly Leaves under the bow using Glue Dots. I added a few Gold Gilded Gems to the card front. I adhered the card front to a Basic White Thick card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Snow Wonder stamp set on a Basic White panel. I stamped the holly leaves from the Christmas Season stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink and the berries in Cherry Cobbler Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to the inside of the Basic White Thick card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the holly leaves from the Christmas Season stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink and the berries in Cherry Cobbler Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the Painted Christmas Designer Series Paper to the envelope flap.

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

Stampin’ Up! Christmas Season To Remember

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone’s weekend going? I’ll be off to my quarterly team meeting this afternoon to meet up with some of my team members in person, finally!! I’m so looking forward to seeing them again.

Today’s card is one of the cards we will be making today at our meeting. I’m going to be presenting the card and making it with my team members in person and via Zoom meeting. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Christmas Season Photopolymer Stamp Set, the Stampin’ Up! Christmas To Remember Cling Stamp Set and the Painted Christmas Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by adhering a panel of the Painted Christmas DSP to a Cherry Cobbler mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to a Basic White Thick card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Soft Succulent cardstock I stamped the pine bough image from the Christmas Season stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink 6 times. I cut the images out using my Seasonal Labels Dies. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the large and small pinecone images from the Christmas Season stamp set. I stamped the solid pinecone image in Soft Suede Ink, stamping off once and the detailed pinecone image over the solid image in Soft Suede Ink full strength. I cut the images out using my Seasonal Labels Dies. I cut the largest label die from the Seasonal Labels Dies from a panel of Cherry Cobbler cardstock. On the bottom of the label, I stamped the sentiment from the Christmas To Remember stamp set in Versamark Ink. I immediately sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.

I adhered 2 sets of 3 of the pine bough dies together using Glue Dots. I adhered the pinecone dies to the top of the Cherry Cobbler label using Stampin’ Dimensionals, just on the top and bottom of the pinecones. I adhered the 2 sets of pine boughs dies under the pinecones using Glue Dots. I adhered the layered label to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I tied a small bow using the Cherry Cobbler & Gold 1/2″ Metallic Ribbon and adhered it to the top of the pinecones using a Glue Dot. I added a few gold Brushed Metallic Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Christmas To Remember stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I adhered a strip of the Painted Christmas DSP to the bottom of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Basic White Thick card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the 2 pine bough images from the Christmas Season stamp set on the top of the envelope front in Evening Evergreen Ink. I adhered a panel of the Painted Christmas 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!!
