Stampin’ Up! Pressed Petals Hello CAS

Good Sunday morning my fellow stampers.  How is everyone doing today?  I hope you are all enjoying your long weekend.  I’ll be at work all day today, but I have off tomorrow and Tuesday, YAY!!

I have another Clean and Simple card for you today using up some more of the Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper.  I love when the paper does the work for you.  Here’s my card.

Isn’t this paper just gorgeous!!  If you are liking this paper, grab it while you can.  It’ll be retiring June 2nd.  It’s on the retiring list and once it’s gone that’s it.

I started by stamping the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Grace’s Garden Photopolymer Stamp Set in Merry Merlot Ink on the top of the Pressed Petals Specialty DSP panel.  I cut the panel out using the largest rectangle from the Stitched Rectangle Dies.

I adhered the DSP panel to a Merry Merlot mat using Snail and then to a Merry Merlot card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Nobel Peacock Rhinestones to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from Grace’s Garden stamp set in the center of a Very Vanilla panel in Merry Merlot Ink.  I adhered 2 strips of Pressed Petals Specialty DSP to either side of the sentiment using Snail.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to the inside of the Merry Merlot card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I adhered a strip of Pressed Petals Specialty DSP to the front of the envelope and 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! Come Sail Away Memories and More Card Pack

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends.  How is everyone doing today?  I had the day off yesterday and I was going through some items that will be retiring and I came across some things that I hardly used. One of the items was the Stampin’ Up! Come Sail Away Memories and More Card Pack.  There are so many different things in this card pack, I couldn’t believe I didn’t used it more.  So I sat and made a whole set of masculine cards for you today using all different elements from this set that are retiring.  The only thing not retiring is the Stampin’ Up! Sailing Home Cling Stamp Set, YAY!!  I don’t have measurements since this is a card pack.  All my cards are either 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″ scored and folded at 4 1/4″ or 4 1/4″ X 11″ scored and folded at 5 1/2″.   My cards can be used as Birthday, Father’s Day, Encouragement or Anniversary cards.  Here are my cards for you.

This set makes great cards and can be used for scrapbook pages too.  I cut a 4 X6 panels down to fit my card base, added a sticker that came in the card pack and I was done.

There are 4″ X 6″ panels and 3″ X 4″ panels that I mixed and matched.  I added a little twine and the card was done. That easy.

Some I left the 3″ X 4″ panels and just added an embossed layer using the new Old World Paper 3D Embossing Folder (available June 3).

Some I cut down using some of my Stitched Rectangle Dies.  This one uses some of the Come Sail Away DSP also, along with stickers that come with the pack.

This card I added some of the Come Sail Away DSP which coordinates perfectly with the panels, added a sticker and done.

This one I used the Stitched Nested Labels Dies and the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder, I added some of the Night of Navy/Sahara Sand Bakers Twine and  the Sail Away Trinkets.

I embossed a panel using the Old World Paper 3D Embossing Folder to add some extra texture to this antique looking panel along with some of the Come Sail Away DSP.  I added some Linen Thread and a Sail Away Trinket and I was done.

This card I used the Stitched So Sweetly Dies along with the Come Sail Away DSP and some stickers that came with the pack.  I added a few Metallic Pearls and my card was done. The possibilities are endless with this card pack.

The Come Sail Away Memories & More Card Pack, Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper, Night of Navy/Sahara Sand Bakers Twine and Sail Away Trinkets will all be retiring from the catalog.  Once they are gone that’s it.  If this is something that you love, grab them now.  The best part is they are ALL on CLEARANCE at a discounted price.  Don’t wait!!

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked all the cards I made using this card pack.  This is really an awesome set and there’s much more than I showed.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Touched My Heart Sympathy CAS

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends.  Happy Mother’s Day to all mothers, grandmothers, God mothers, mothers to be, step mothers, aunts, animal mothers and all our angle mothers.  I hope you all have a very enjoyable day. I’m hoping to get in some crafting time since we really can’t go anywhere.  This will be my first without my mom, so it’s going to be a little tough for me.

Today’s card is one of those we don’t like to make, but we have to.  I received my preorder last week and one of the sets I received was a Host exclusive set which just happen to have a Sympathy sentiment in it.  Here’s my card for today.

My design was inspired by Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #434.  They had the perfect clean and simple design for my sympathy card.  Here is their sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of the Old Olive Regals 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to an Old Olive card base using Snail.

I cut 2 rectangles out using the Stitched Rectangles Dies from a panel of Crumb Cake cardstock.  I embossed the rectangles using the new Tasteful Textiles 3D Embossing Folder (available June 3rd).  I adhered the rectangles to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a Whisper White panel I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Touched My Heart Host Cling Stamp Set (available June 3rd) in Old Olive Ink.  I stamped the leaf image from the Touched My Heart stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink below the sentiment, stamping off twice.  I cut the image out using the Stitched Rectangle Dies and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Path of Petals Photopolymer Stamp Set in Old Olive Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the leaf images from the Touched My Heart stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink on either side of the sentiment stamping off once.  I adhered a strip of the Old Olive Regals 6 X 6 DSP to the bottom of the panel using Snail.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Crumb Cake 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 leaf images from the Touched My Heart stamp set in Old Olive Ink on the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of the Old Olive Regals 6 X 6 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. Enjoy the rest of your weekend and have a wonderful day.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Dandelion Wishes for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends.  How is everyone doing today?  Welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we had a Sketch Challenge. Be sure to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects .
Here is the sketch we had to work from.

Here’s my card using this sketch.

My colors were inspired by  CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge #369.  Here are their colors.

I started by adhering a panel of Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper to a Terracotta Tile card base using Snail.

On a panel of Pretty Peacock cardstock I stamped the image from the Stampin’ Up! Dandelion Wishes Cling Stamp Set in Versamaark Ink.  I immediately sprinkled it with my White Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I cut the image out using my Stitched Rectangle Dies.  I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and added 3 Purple Posy 2019-2021 In-Color Faceted Dots to the flower centers.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Moments Cling Stamp Set in Versamark Ink on a Terracotta Tile strip of cardstock.  I immediately sprinkled it with my White Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I adhered a piece of Terracotta Tile 1/2″ Scallop Linen Ribbon using a tiny amount of Snail to hold it in place.  I adhered the sentiment strip on top of the ribbon using Glue Dots.  I added a Pretty Peacock 2019-2021 In-Color Faceted Dot to the end of the sentiment.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Peaceful Moments stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the flower image from the Dandelion Wishes stamp set, which I colored using my Purple Posy Stampin’ Write Marker, over the sentiment.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pretty Peacock mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Terracotta Tile card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the flower image from the Dandelion Wishes stamp set, which I colored using my Purple Posy Stampin’ Write Marker, on the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of Pressed Petals Specialty DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for visiting my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Now that you’ve seen my card, take a minute to hop through all our projects today.

Stampin’ Up! A Good Man Sailing Home

Good Tuesday Cinco De Mayo morning my stamping friends.  How has everyone’s week started off?  Today’s an extra special day for us demonstrators, we get to place our preorder for the new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.  That means that I will be ordering my catalogs and if you are one of my customers, you will be getting yours in the mail real soon.

For today’s card I made you a masculine card.  I figured you were getting tired of Mother’s Day cards, so I moved on to Father’s Day.  I don’t make nearly as many Father’s Day cards though.  Here’s my card for today.

I started by adhering a panel of the retiring Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper to a Night of Navy card base using Snail.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the lighthouse image from the Stampin’ Up! Sailing Home Cling Stamp Set in Sahara Sand Ink.  I cut the image out using my Stitched Rectangle Dies.  I cut a panel of Sahara Sand cardstock an 1/8″ larger that the rectangle I used for a mat and adhered it to the center of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I added some Night of Navy/Sahara Sand Bakers Twine to the Sahara Sand using a little Snail.

I adhered the artwork to the Sahara Sand mat on top of the bakers twine using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added one of the Sail Away Trinkets to the end of the bakers twine using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! A Good Man Cling Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink.  I stamped the lighthouse image from the Sailing Home stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink, stamping off once, over the sentiment.  I stamped the bird image from the Sailing Home stamp set in Night of Navy Ink above the lighthouse.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Sahara Sand 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 lighthouse image from the Sailing Home stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink on the envelope flap.  I adhered a panel of Come Sail Away 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! Grateful We Are Friends

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends.  How is everyone’s week going?  We’re halfway through and almost to the weekend again.  We are still quarantined here in NJ, so I won’t be going anywhere except to work.

I’ve been making a lot of Mother’s Day cards lately, in case you haven’t noticed.  I like to send them out to my family and friends. Today I have another one for you using a set that will be carrying over to the new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.  Here’s my card for today.

My colors were inspired by Sunday Stamps Color Challenge #229.  Here are their colors.

My design is from Paper Players Sketch Challenge #488.  Here is their sketch.

I started by cutting a panel of Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper using the largest Stitched Rectangle Die.  I adhered it to a Pretty Peacock mat using Snail and adhered it to a Pool Party card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the large flower image from the Stampin’ Up! Band Together Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the image in using my Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green and Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends Markers.  The top flower is the Daffodil Delight and the bottom is the Mango Melody, but you can’t really see the difference in the photo.  I cut the image out using the 4th largest Stitched Rectangle Die and adhered it to a Pretty Peacock mat using Snail.  I adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock, I stamped the butterfly image from the Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Gala Photopolymer Stamp Set, in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I stamped the fill images from the Butterfly Gala stamp set in using Mango Melody Ink.  I punched the image out using my Butterfly Duet Punch.  I brushed the butterfly with my Clear Wink of Stella to give it a little shimmer.  I stamped the butterflies antenna on the flower in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and adhered the butterfly to the artwork using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I stamped the sentiment from the Band Together stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a Whisper White panel and cut it out using the smallest oval from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I adhered the sentiment to the bottom of the artwork using Glue Dots.  I tied a small bow using the Pretty Peacock/Old Olive 3/8″ Reversible Ribbon and adhered it to the sentiment using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the large flower image from the Band Together stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink on a Whisper White panel, stamping off 3 times to get a very light image.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Strong & Beautiful Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pretty Peacock mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Pool Party card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the large flower image from the Band Together stamp set on either side of the envelope front.  I colored the images in using my Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green and Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of Peaceful Poppies 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! Ornate From All Of Us for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday.  How was everyone’s week?

Today’s card is one that I demonstrated on our Facebook Live Event last Saturday.  Here is the link if you’d like to watch it.  https://creativestampingdesigns.com/…/stampin-up-ornate-ho…/    These cards are the same, but just a little different.  One I made as a book fold and the other a tent fold.  I have both cards here that I  will explain.  The card cuts and products used are below for both cards.  Here are my cards.

With both cards I started by lightly adhering the Early Espresso card front to the Early Espresso card base and the Old Olive card front to the Old Olive card base using a tiny bit of Snail right in the middle.  I cut the Early Espresso card using the Layering Ovals Dies and the Old Olive card using the Stitched Rectangle Dies.  I embossed both card fronts using my Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the Early Espresso card front to the Early Espresso card base and the Old Olive card front to the Old Olive card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Using my Layering Ovals Dies, I cut a panel of Blushing Bride cardstock using the scalloped oval that was larger that the cut oval.  I cut the center of the oval the same size as the  one cut through the card front.  I adhered the frame to the Early Espresso card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I wrapped a piece of Old Olive Ornate Garden 1/4″ Ribbon around the right side of the oval and tied a bow.  On a thin piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Thanks Photopolymer Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink.  I adhered the sentiment to a Blushing Bride mat using Snail and then to the Early Espresso card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a couple Gilded Gems to the card front.

Using my Ornate Layers Dies, I cut a panel of Terracotta Tile cardstock using the frame that was larger than the rectangle on the Old Olive card front.  I cut the center of the Terracotta Tile frame using the same size Stitched Rectangle Die that I used to cut through the card front.

I adhered the frame to the Old Olive card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I added a Gilded Gem to the card front.

For the inner card I adhered a panel of Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper to a Blushing Bride card base using Snail.  I adhered the inner card inside the Early Espresso card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue making sure it was centered and opened to the right (opposite of the Early Espresso card).   It will look like photo below.

I added another Gilded Gem to one of the flowers you can see through the card front.

For the inner card I adhered a panel of the Ornate Garden Specialty DSP to a Terracotta Tile card base using Snail.  I adhered the inner card to the inside of the Old Olive card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue making sure it was centered and opened to the right (opposite of a book fold card).  I stamped the sentiment from the Ornate Thanks stamp set in Terracotta Tile Ink on a strip of Whisper White cardstock.  I adhered the sentiment to an Old Olive mat using Snail.  I adhered the matted sentiment to the inner card front using Glue Dots, lining is up through the rectangle card front.  I tied a small bow from the Terracotta Tile Ornate Garden 1/4″ Ribbon and adhered it with a Glue Dot.  I added a couple Gilded Gems to the inner card front and sentiment.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips Photopolymer Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  Using the Ornate Borders Dies, I cut out the flourish on either side of the sentiment.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the smaller Blushing Bride card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  There were 2 heart shapes that cut out of each side from the flourish die, so I added them in the top inside corners of the small and large card bases using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Terracotta Tile Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the daisy image from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Style Cling Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink on the bottom of the panel.  I colored the images in using my Light Mango Melody and Light Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the small Terracotta Tile card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the scroll image from the Ornate Style stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the 4 corners of the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of the Ornate Garden Specialty DSP to the envelope flap.

To finish my 2nd card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the daisy image from the Ornate Style stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the bottom of the envelope front 3 times.  I colored the images in using my Light Mango Melody and Light Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of the Ornate Garden Specialty DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my cards and will give it a try.  If you want to watch the video on the Old Olive card, just click the link above.  Happy Stamping!!
