Stampin’ Up! Lacey Wild Rose

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s weekend?  I sure hope everyone staying healthy.  Last week I got a new light for my crafting table, which meant I had to rearrange and clean my table.  While doing so, I came across bits and pieces of cards that I had lying around and never did anything with.  I decided to put some of them to good use and create a card from what I had lying around.  Here’s what I came up with using some of the pieces.

I had an Old Olive panel which I had embossed using the new Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered a Whisper White panel which I had cut using the Stitched Lace Die, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I wrapped a piece of Seaside Spray 1/4″ Metallic Ribbon around the card front and tied a bow.  I adhered the card front to an Old Olive card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! To A Wild Rose Photopolymer Stamp Set in Seaside Spray Ink.  I cut the panel out using the Stitched Nested Labels Dies and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I had a rose image from To A Wild Rose stamp set which I had stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored using my Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I also had some leaves from To A Wild Rose stamp set which I had stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored using my Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers.  The images were all cut using the Wild Rose Dies.  I adhered the die cut rose to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added the leaves under my rose using Glue Dots.  I added a few  Seaside Spray 2019-2021 In- Color Faceted Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from To A Wild Rose stamp set in Seaside Spray Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the rose image from To A Wild Rose stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the bottom of the panel.   I stamped the leaf image from To A Wild Rose stamp set by the rose and on the top of the panel.  I colored the images in using my Old Olive and Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to an Old Olive mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Old Olive card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the rose and leaf images from To A Wild Rose stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink to the envelope front and envelope flap.  I colored the images in using my Old Olive and Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try.  Check your craft area, I bet you may have bits and pieces of cards you started and didn’t do anything with.  See what you can come up with.  We all have a lot of extra time since we’re not supposed to be going out, so it’s the perfect time to clean up our area.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Positive Thoughts Masculine Birthday

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends.  How is everyone doing today?   We’re half way through the week already and heading to the weekend.  We’re expecting another rainy day here.  I’m not sure if Mother Nature knows it or not, but it’s winter.  We’re supposed to get snow in the winter not rain.  I really need a snow day to be able to craft all day while my family is shoveling the snow.

Onto my card for today.  I’ve got a masculine card for you using one of my favorite sets from the 2020 January-June Mini Catalog.  Here’s my card.

My colors are from the Global Design Project Challenge #229.  Here are their colors.

My design is from the As You See It Challenge #219.  Here is their sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of Country Club Designer Series Paper to a Night of Navy card base using Snail.  I absolutely love these plaids in this DSP pack.  Perfect for masculine cards.

I stamped the fern image from the Stampin’ Up! Positive Thoughts Cling Stamp Set in Garden Green Ink on a panel of Crushed Curry Regals 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper.  I cut the image out using my Stitched Nested Dies.  I adhered the die cut to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered a strip of Garden Green cardstock across the artwork using Stampin’ Dimensionals I adhered the strip of Night of Navy cardstock along the bottom of the Garden Green strip using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Greetings Cling Stamp Set in Garden Green Ink.  I adhered the sentiment strip below the Night of Navy strip using Glue Dots.  Using the Coordination Nature’s Thoughts Dies I cut the feather  out of a scrap of Crushed Curry cardstock and adhered it to the card front using a Stampin’ Dimensional and Glue Dot.  I added a few gold Metallic Pearls to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! A Good Man Cling Stamp Set in Garden Green Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel. I stamped the fern image from the Positive Thoughts stamp set in Garden Green Ink, stamping off 3 times, across the sentiment.  I adhered a strip of the Country Club DSP to the side of the panel using Snail.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Garden Green mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Night of Navy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the fern image from the Positive Thoughts stamp set in Garden Green Ink on the envelope front 3 times without re-inking.  I adhered a panel of the Country Club 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! Hello Honey Bee for Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. How is everyone doing today? If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects today. This week we had a Color Challenge, here are the colors we got to work with.

Here is my card using the colors. I’ll admit, I had to think for a moment what to make.

My card played along with the ‘Just Us Girls’ Challenge #521.  Here is their theme.

I started by adhering a panel of Golden Honey Specialty Designer Series Paper, (Free Sale-A-Bration item), to a Whisper White card front using Snail. Using my Dark Basic Black Stampin’ Blends Marker, I colored a piece of the 3/8″ Gold Metallic Edge Ribbon.  Once it was dry, I wrapped it around the card front.  With a smaller piece of the colored ribbon I tied a small bow and adhered it to the top of the ribbon using a Glue Dot.  I adhered the card front to a Basic Black card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut a panel of Whisper White cardstock using the largest Stitched Nested Labels Dies and adhered it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Using my Detailed Bees Dies, I cut a panel of the Golden Honey Specialty DSP using the bee hive die.  I cut out 2 honey combs from a Gold Foil Sheet using the Detailed Bees Dies.  I adhered the honey combs to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and adhered the bee hive on top of the honey comb using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few of the ‘honey’ pieces to the honey comb using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.  On a scrap of Whisper White cardstock I stamped 2 of the small bees from the Stampin’ Up! Honey Bee Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I cut the bees out using the Detailed Bees Dies.  I colored the stripes on the bees in using my Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends Markers and I added some Clear Wink of Stella to the bees wings.  I adhered the bees to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a thin strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Honey Bee stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I adhered the sentiment to a Basic Black mat using Snail and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I cut another one of the bee hives using the Detailed Bees Dies and the Golden Honey Specialty DSP.  I adhered the bee hive to the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the Honey Bee stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink above the bee hive.  I stamped 2 more bees of the small bees from the Honey Bee stamp set on a scrap of Whisper White cardstock.  I cut the bees out using the Detailed Bees Dies.  I colored the bees stripes in using my Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends Marker and added some Clear Wink of Stella to the bees wings..  I adhered the bees to the bee hive using Glue Dots.  I adhered the Whisper  White panel to the inside of the Basic Black card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the small bee image from the Honey Bee stamp set across the bottom of the envelope front.  I colored the bees stripes using my Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of the Golden Honey Specialty DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Bird Ballad Pinwheel for Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop.  How is everyone doing today?  If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects today. This week we had a Color Challenge, here are the colors we got to work with.

Here is my card using these beautiful colors.  I just love Petal Pink and Pool Party together.

I thought I would pull out some scraps of DSP from the Annual Catalog.  I’ve been wanting to try this card and it’s a perfect way to use up some of your scraps.  I started by embossing a Petal Pink card front using the Eyelet Lace Embossing Folder.  I adhered the  embossed panel to a Petal Pink card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I took 2 Whisper White panels and adhered them to 2 Pool Party mats using Snail.  Using my Grid Paper for a guide, I adhered one on top of the other so that all sides and points were equal, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue so I had a little wiggle room.

I started at the top and only putting Snail on one side of the Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper square, I adhered it to the Whisper White panel making sure there was an equal edge around the top.  I continued around the squares adhering every other design of DSP overlapping the left corner of the square on the previous piece and making sure there was an equal edge around the tops.  Each square I put Snail on 2 of the sides.  When I got to the last piece I adhered the left side on the previous piece and tucked the right side under the 1st piece I put down (that is why you only put Snail on one side of the 1st piece).  I then added a little Snail to the 1st piece on the edge overlapping.  I hope this makes sense.  I adhered my pinwheel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I tied a small bow using the Petal Pink Metallic Edge Ribbon and adhered it to the center of the pinwheel using a Glue Dot.

On a small piece of Whisper White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Free As A Bird Cling Stamp Set in Pool Party Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using the smallest Stitched Nested Labels Dies.  I cut a piece of Pool Party cardstock using the next size Stitched Nested Labels Dies.  I adhered the sentiment to the Pool Party mat using Snail and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a Petal Pink Frosted Flower Embellishment to the side of the sentiment.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Friend Like You Photopolymer Stamp Set in Pool Party Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the large and small flowers from the Free As A Bird stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the sides of the sentiment.  I colored the flowers in using my Petal Pink and Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pool Party mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Petal Pink card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped a cluster of flowers from the Free As A Bird stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the envelope front.  I colored the flowers in using my Petal Pink and Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of the Bird Ballad DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for visiting my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try.  As always, if you have any questions or can’t understand my directions, drop me a message and I will try to explain it better.  Now that you’ve seen my card you can hit the next button to hop over to Amy Koenders blog or you can just click on the names below. Happy Hopping!!

Stampin’ Up! Tropical Oasis Chic Thank You Card

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  How is everyone’s week going?  Well it’s back to work for me today.  After getting home early Tuesday morning (2am), and spending the day unpacking, doing laundry and running for groceries, it’s time to get back into the normal routine and relax.  Vacations are great, but I love my daily routine days.

For today’s card I made you a really quick one featuring the beautiful Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper.  I think this paper is absolutely gorgeous.  Really makes me want to go to Hawaii.  Here’s my card.

I started by adhering a panel of the Tropical Oasis DSP to a Pear Pizzazz mat using Snail.  I adhered the matted DSP to a So Saffron card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Tropical Chic Cling Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink.  I stamped one of the leaf images from the Tropical Chic stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink over the sentiment stamping off once.  I cut the sentiment out using the Stitched Nested Labels Dies.  I adhered a piece of the Whisper White 5/8″ Flax Ribbon across the center of the card front using Snail.  I adhered the sentiment over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the hibiscus image from the Tropical Chic stamp set in Lovely Lipstick Ink.  I cut the image out using the Tropical Dies.  I adhered the hibiscus to the end of the sentiment using a Glue Dot.  I added a couple Lovely Lipstick Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots to the sentiment.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Tropical Chic stamp set in Early Espresso Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the leaf image from the Tropical Chic stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on the left side of the panel once in full strength and twice stamped off.  I adhered another hibiscus flower that I had stamped from the Tropical Chic stamp set in Lovely Lipstick and cut out using the Tropical Dies using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.   I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pear Pizzazz mat using Snail and then to the inside of the So Saffron card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the leaf image from the Tropical Chic stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on the side and bottom of the envelope front, some stamped full strength and some stamped off.  I adhered a panel of the Tropical Oasis 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! Free As A Bird Ballad

Good Monday morning my stamping friends.  How was everyone’s weekend?  I had my family over again for an after Christmas dinner.  It was much more relaxed and unplanned.   Well, 2019 is coming to an end tomorrow and I don’t know about you, but I sure am happy this year is ending.  This has not been the best year for me other than meeting up with my team members at OnStage twice, so I’m ready for 2020.  Is anyone  a  New Year’s resolution person of do you just go with the flow?  I’m coming up with some new ideas for the new year, but I stopped making resolutions since they never happen and I would just get angry with myself.  My moto is what will be, will be and I go with the flow.

For today’s card I used some items from the Annual Catalog.  Sometimes we get so caught up in the new catalogs starting that we forget about our Annual Catalog.  Here’s my card.

I started by adhering a panel of Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper to a Calypso Coral card front using Snail.  I stamped the large bird image from the Stampin’ Up! Free As A Bird Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a small panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I colored the image in using my Calypso Coral, Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive and Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I cut the image out using the Stitched Nested Labels Dies.  I cut a mat out using the larger Stitched Nested Labels Dies from a panel of Calypso Coral cardstock  I adhered the artwork to the mat using Snail.

I adhered the matted artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the card front to a Calypso Coral card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I chose not to put a sentiment on the front of my card today.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from Free As A Bird stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the small and medium flower image and the leaf image from the Free As A Bird stamp set multiple times in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the corners of the Whisper White panel.  I colored the flowers and leaves in using my Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, Petal Pink and Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Calypso Coral mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Calypso Coral card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the large bird image from the Free As A Bird stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front.  I colored the image in using my Calypso Coral, Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, Petal Pink and Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of the Bird Ballad DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Wrapped in Plaid Winter Woods

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  Happy half way through  the work week day!!  Hope everyone’s week is moving right along.  Other than my surgery getting delayed for 3 hours yesterday, everything went well.  I got to be awake for the whole thing and was able to ask the doctor questions as he was performing the surgery.    The first hand wasn’t too bad, but by the time he started the second the numbness was wearing off.  He did numb it up again though.  Having a bit of trouble using my finger now, but I’ll figure out how and keep moving right along.

For today’s card I used a stamp set from the Annual Catalog which I absolutely love.    Here’s my card.

My colors were inspired by CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge #350.  Here are their colors.

I started by adhering a panel of Wrapped In Plaid Specialty Designer Series Paper to a Shaded Spruce card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the tree image from the Stampin’ Up Winter Woods Cling Stamp Set in Shaded Spruce Ink.  I cut the image out using the largest Stitched Nested Labels Dies and cut the top section off.  I adhered the artwork to the top of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I needed a star for the top of the tree, so I grabbed the Stitched Stars Dies and cut a small star out of a scrap of Gold Foil Sheet.  I adhered the star to the top of the tree using a Glue dot.  I added Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels all over the tree.

On a strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Winter Woods stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink.  I made a banner out of the strip using my Banner Triple Punch.  I adhered a small strip of a Gold Foil Sheet to the bottom of the banner using Snail and adhered it to the bottom of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I tied a small bow from the Shaded Spruce/Gold 3/8″ Striped Ribbon and adhered it to the end of the banner using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Merry Christmas To All Photopolymer Stamp Set in Shaded Spruce Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the pine bough image from the Winter Woods stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink on either side of the sentiment.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Shaded Spruce card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the tree image from the Winter Woods stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink on the envelope front. I stamped one in full strength and another stamped off.  I adhered a panel of the Wrapped In Plaid Specialty 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!!
