Stampin’ Up! Paradise Palms Special Moments CAS

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends. Hope your week has started out productive.

I was so happy with my card for today and surprisingly I only used Stamps, Ink and Paper. Back to the basics. I just love playing with the Blending Brushes and mixing colors. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Paradise Palms Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Stampin’ Up! Sale-a-bration Special Moments Photopolymer Stamp Set for my card today.

I started with a Basic White card front. I used Post-It Note Tape and taped off the sides of the panel to make a border. Starting at the bottom using my Blending Brushes I started adding color. I used Daffodil Delight, Mango Melody, Flirty Flamingo, Highland Heather and Misty Moonlight Inks, blending them all as I moved up the panel.

Once I had the colors the way I wanted them I started stamping the palm tree images and the grass image from the Paradise Palms stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I removed the tape from the 4 sides and adhered the card front to a Basic Black mat and then to a Basic White Thick card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Special Moments stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I adhered the sentiment to a Basic Black mat and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Paradise Palms stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the palm tree and grass images from the Paradise Palm stamp set on the bottom of the panel in Tuxedo Black Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Basic Black mat and then to the inside of the Basic White Thick card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic Whtie Medium Envelope. I stamped the grass and palm tree images from the Paradise Palms stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the Sunshine & Rainbows Sale-a-bration Designer Series Paper to the envelope flap.

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

Stampin’ Up! Ranunculus Romance Hello for The Card Concepts

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. We’re halfway through the week already and on our way to the weekend. I hope you are starting to make some plans.

It’s time for another inspiration challenge for The Card Concepts. The inspiration photo is Fresh New Year.  Here is my card that was inspired from the challenge photo.

I used the new Stampin’ Up! Ranunculus Romance Bundle along with the Pattern Party Host Designer Series Paper for my Clean & Layered card today. I was inspired by the beautiful roses in the photo along with the colors.

I hope you will take a moment to visit The Card Concepts and join us for our challenge #166.  How are you inspired by this photo?

I started by adhering a panel of the Pattern Party DSP to a Basic White Thick card base.

From a panel of Flirty Flamingo and Petal Pink cardstock, I cut a detailed and solid flower using my Ranunculus Dies. I adhered them together using a tiny amount of Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the flower to the card front.

From a panel of Basic White cardstock I cut the largest circle from my Layering Circles Dies. I stamped the rose image and sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Ranunculus Romance Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I cut the images using my Ranunculus Dies. I colored the rose image in using my Flirty Flamingo and Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends Markers. I embossed the large circle using my Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder. I cut the largest scalloped circle using my Layering Circles Dies from a panel of the Brushed Metallic cardstock. I adhered the embossed circle to the gold circle using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered a piece of the Petal Pink 5/8″ Organdy Striped Ribbon to the circle then the flower over it using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the layered circle to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the sentiment to the bottom of the circle using a Glue Dot and Stampin’ Dimensional. I added a few Iridescent Rhinestones Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Special Moments Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. This set is a Sale-a-bration item and can be earned FREE with a qualifying order. I stamped the rose image from the Ranunculus Romance stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the side of the panel and colored it in using my Flirty Flamingo, Granny Apple Green and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic Whtie panel to a Petal Pink mat and then to the inside of the Basic White Thick card base.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the rose image from the Ranunculus Romance stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I colored the image in using my Flirty Flamingo, Granny Apple Green and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of the Pattern Party 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! Amazing Silhouettes CAS Birthday

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. I hope you all had a wonderful long weekend and are ready to take on a new year.

Today I have a sneak peek of a couple new sets for you using just Stamp, Ink and Paper. One you can buy and one you can earn for FREE. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Amazing Silhouettes Cling Stamp Set, which will be available for purchase starting tomorrow January 4th. I also used the Stampin’ Up! Special Moments Photopolymer Stamp Set, which is a FREE Sale-a-bration item you can earn starting tomorrow January 4th.

I started by using my Simply Scored Scoring Tool to make the background panel of Misty Moonlight cardstock. I put the cardstock in on an angle and using my Stylus, I scored the panel of cardstock every 1/2″. I turned the cardstock and scored again to make the diamond embossed panel, scoring every 1/2″. I flipped the cardstock so the raised side was up and adhered it to a Misty Moonlight card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the butterfly silhouette image from the Amazing Silhouettes stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink. I stamped the sentiment from the Special Moments stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink on the bottom of the panel.

I adhered the artwork to a Misty Moonlight mat and then to a Basic White mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Special Moments stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the butterfly silhouette image from the Amazing Silhouettes stamp set next to the sentiment. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Misty Moonlight mat and then to the inside of the Misty Moonlight card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the butterfly silhouette image from the Amazing Silhouettes stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the 2020-2022 In-Color 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! Special Moment CAS Sneak Peek

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend? Was everyone able to visit with family and friends for Christmas. I worked yesterday and it was like watching paint dry. It always amazes me with retail how it’s busy, busy, busy then it just dies.

I have a clean and simple card today using all Sale-a-bration items. Do you know that Sale-a-bration starts in just 8 days? I’m so excited!!! I can’t wait to get my hands on more of the free items. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Special Moments Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Daffodil Afternoon Designer Series Paper for my card today. Both of these items are free with a qualifying order during Sale-a-bration

I started by stamping the sentiment from the Special Moments stamp set in Versamark Ink on a panel of Evening Evergreen cardstock. I immediately sprinkled it with my White Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I punched the sentiment out using my Label Me Fancy Punch and punched the slits on either side of the punched sentiment.

I threaded a piece of the Evening Evergreen 3/8″ Chevron Ribbon through the punch and wrapped it around a panel of Daffodil Afternoon DSP adhering it on the back using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the panel to a Flirty Flaming card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added some Garden Gems (only available for 1 more week) to the sentiment and the flower centers.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Special Moments stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I adhered a strip of the Daffodil Daydream 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 Flirty Flamingo card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic Whtie Medium Envelope. I stamped the daffodil image from the Stampin’ Up! Daffodil Daydream Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I colored the throat of the flower using my Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of the Daffodil Afternoon DSP to the envelope flap. I realized after I adhered it, that I used the wrong DSP oops.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my CAS card. Items will be available with a qualifying order starting on January 4, 2022. Get those shopping lists ready! Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Daffodil Daydream for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends, Merry Christmas Eve, Eve! Is everyone just about ready for the big day? I’m not. I have to work all day today and I don’t have 1 gift wrapped. I still have to pick up a gift or 2, which may end up having to wait. The lines in the store were crazy the other day. Now if it’s something I can buy at the dog bakery or the hardware store, then I will get it.

Welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. If you are hopping over from Akiko Sudano’s blog, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we have a Sketch Challenge. I can’t wait to see what everyone has created this week. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s awesome projects. Here is my card using this weeks Sketch.

I used the new Stampin’ Up! Daffodil Daydream Cling Stamp Set along with Sale-a-bration items, the Stampin’ Up! Special Moments Photopolymer Stamp Set and Daffodil Afternoon Designer Series Paper for my card today.

Here is our sketch for this week.

I started by cutting the center of a panel of the Daffodil Afternoon DSP using the 3rd largest Stitched Rectangle Die.

I adhered the larger piece of the DSP to a Pale Papaya card base. I took the center piece that I cut out and flipped it over and adhered it to the center of the adhered piece on the card base. Can we just take a moment to look at this gorgeous DSP!!!

On a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the daffodil image from the Daffodil Daydream stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink, stamping off 3 times on a piece of scrap paper. I colored just the throat of the daffodil using my Pale Papaya Stampin’ Blends Markers. I went over what I colored using the Color Lifter Stampin’ Blend Marker so there was just a very light color. I stamped the sentiment from the Special Moments stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink over the stamped image. I cut the image our using the 4th largest Layering Circle Dies. I adhered a piece of the Pale Papaya 3/8″ Open Weave Ribbon to the card front and adhered the circle over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Special Moments stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Very Vanilla panel. I stamped the daffodil image from the Daffodil Daydream stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink, stamping off 3 times on scrap paper, and colored it the same as I did for the card front. I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Basic Black mat and then to the inside of the Pale Papaya card base.

To complete my card I decorated a Very Vanilla Medium Envelope. I stamped the daffodil image from the Daffodil Daydream stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and colored it using my Pale Papaya Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of the Daffodil Afternoon DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for visiting my blog today. Items used for my card today will be available starting January 4, 2022, from the January-June 2022 Mini Catalog and the Sale-a-bration catalog.

Stampin’ Up! Amazing Silhouettes Sneak Peek

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. We’re halfway through the week and on our way to the weekend. I’m scheduled to work both days at both jobs. I’m just taking it really easy since I’m still not doing well.

I have a sneak peek for you today of some goodies coming in the new January-June 2022 Mini Catalog. When I first saw this set, I was not going to get it. This was a set that we all received at our OnStage event in November. Even when I received it, I just stood and stared at it wondering what to do. Well, here’s what I did with it for today.

I used the new Stampin’ Up! Amazing Silhouettes Bundle, the Stampin’ Up! Special Moments Photopolymer Stamp Set (a free Sale-a-bration item) along with the Simply Marbleous 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper (a free Sale-a-bration item), for my card today.

My design is from Inspire. Create. Challenge #105.

My colors are from TGIF Challenge #345. I really love these colors together.

I started by cutting a Basic White card front on an angle. I cut 1″ down on the right side to 2″ down on the left side. I stamped the larger image from the Stampin’ Up! Amazing Silhouettes Cling Stamp Set in Misty Moonlight Ink on the Basic White card front. I embossed the panel using the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder.

I adhered the card front to a panel of the new Marbleous 6 X 6 DSP. I wrapped a piece of the new Misty Moonlight 1/8″ Cotton Ribbon from the Cotton Ribbon Combo Pack, around the panel adhering it in the back. I adhered the card front to a Pool Party card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue

Using the new Amazing Thanks Dies, I cut the bubble letters from a panel of Just Jade cardstock and the detailed letters from a panel of Pool Party cardstock. I adhered the 2 together using tiny amounts of Multipurpose Liquid Glue and adhered them to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Brushed Brass Butterflies to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Special Moments stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the butterfly image from the Amazing Silhouettes stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink, stamping off once, to the side of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Just Jade mat and then to the inside of the Pool Party card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the butterfly image from the Amazing Silhouettes stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a strip of the Marbleous DSP to the envelope front and a panel to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. The items I used for my card will be available starting January 4, 2022 from the January-June 2022 Mini Catalog. This might be a set you want to consider getting. It’s a lot prettier in person than I thought it would be and I love the dies. Happy Stamping!!!
