But – if you DO NOT use the Host code for your orders of less than $150 (this is the RETAIL total before Shipping & Handling), then you’ll have two options:

  1. You’ll need to call Stampin’ Up! (1-800-Stamp-Up) and ask them to add it for you. They’re very helpful and will get it done quickly!  OR….
  2. If your order was over the $50 threshold but under $150, then…you’ll forfeit that $10 ordering gift and rewards – this is the Bummer Option – and I REALLY don’t want to do this, SO please remember to add my Current Host Code.

Stampin’ Up! Kind & Sincere for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Does anyone have any plans yet for the weekend? I was supposed to have off the entire weekend to do my baking, but unfortunately, they were shorthanded at the dog bakery and me being a softy said I could help. So, plans have changed a bit, I’ll be mixing my cookies today and baking what I could on Sunday. The rest will have to get baked off during the week. I thought about not baking anything this year, but that’s not going over well at all. I’ve been doing this since I was a little girl with my mom and as she got older, I just took over. I can’t break a tradition.

Today’s card I made on my Facebook Live video on Wednesday. If you were able to join me or watched the replay, thank you. If you’d like to watch my video and stamp along, the measurements are below along with the links to my Facebook page and my YouTube channel. Here is my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Kind & Sincere Fun Fold 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the new Stampin’ Up! Kind & Sincere Cling Stamp Set (available starting January 5, 2023) along with the Stampin’ Up! Cottage Rose Cling Stamp Set and Abigail Rose Designer Series Paper for my card today.

Stampin' Up! Kind & Sincere Fun Fold 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by adhering a panel of Abigail Rose DSP to a Smoky Slate card back. I scored & folded a Pool Party card base as listed below. Adhered the card base to the center of the card back. Fussy cut one of the large flower images from the Abigail Rose DSP using Paper Snips. Color the image using Highland Heatherm Petal Pink, Pool Party, Shaded Spruce and Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blends Markers.

Stampin' Up! Kind & Sincere Fun Fold 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

I embossed a Smoky Slate card front using the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the embossed panel to a Pool Party mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. Adhere the layered panel to the 1 1/2″ left side only of the card base. Adhere the large fussy cut floral image to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Kind & Sincere Fun Fold 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

Adhere a panel of Abigail Rose DSP to the 1 1/2″ right side of the card base. On a panel of Basic White cardstock stamp the sentiment from the Kind & Sincere stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink. Cut the sentiment out using the 2nd largest narrow rectangle die from the Stitched Rectangle Dies. Adhere the sentiment over the floral image using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Kind & Sincere Fun Fold 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the thin panel of Basic White cardstock, stamp the sentiment from Kind & Sincere stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink. Cut the sentiment out using the largest narrow banner die from the Stylish Shapes Dies. Adhere the banner sentiment to the right panel using Glue Dots. Add a few Elegant Faceted Gems to the card front.

Stampin' Up! Kind & Sincere Fun Fold 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

Adhere the 2 panels of Abigail Rose DSP to the inside of the card base. Stamp the small flower image from the Cottage Rose stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink on the bottom of the Basic White panel. Color the image using the Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Markers. Adhered the Basic White panel to a Smoky Slate mat then to the inside of the Pool Party card base.

Stampin' Up! Kind & Sincere Fun Fold 7 creativestampingdesigns.com

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the smaller rose image from the Cottage Rose stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink on the envelope front. I colored the image using my Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of Abigail Rose DSP to the envelope flap which I had colored the same as the card front image.

In response to changing policies at Stampin’ Up – I’m adjusting my Ordering Gift policy as well.  I’m having to get a little more tough on the adding of Host codes when you place your order thru my Online Store.

Not to worry – you’re still going to get that $10 ordering gift for orders of $50 (before shipping & tax) or greater.  And the gift is still any 1 SU! product (excluding cardstock) up to that $10 value – which includes some of our fun Host Sets!

But – if you DO NOT use the Host code for your orders of less than $150 (this is the RETAIL total before Shipping & Handling), then you’ll have two options:

  1. You’ll need to call Stampin’ Up! (1-800-Stamp-Up) and ask them to add it for you. They’re very helpful and will get it done quickly!  OR….
  2. If your order was over the $50 threshold but under $150, then…you’ll forfeit that $10 ordering gift and rewards – this is the Bummer Option – and I REALLY don’t want to do this, SO please remember to add my Current Host Code.

I stamped the sentiment from the Season of Chic stamp set in Night of Navy Ink over the swish image. I stamped the outline flower image from the Season of Chic stamp set in Merry Merlot Ink on the corners of the panel. I stamped the solid flower image in Merry Merlot Ink, stamping off once, inside the outline image. I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Night of Navy mat then to the inside of the Merry Merlot card base.

Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. I hope everyone is doing well today. If you are hopping over from Akiko’s blog, thank you for stopping by. This week we have a beautiful fall Color Challenge. Here is my card using this week’s Colors.

Stampin' Up! Celebrate Sunflowers 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers Cling Stamp Set along with the Gingham Cottage Designer Series Paper for my card.

These are out colors for this week

Stampin' Up! Celebrate Sunflowers 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by adhering a panel of Gingham Cottage DSP to a Cajun Craze card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Celebrate Sunflowers 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

Using the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set, I stamped the large sunflower image in Crushed Curry Ink on a panel of Crushed Curry cardstock. I stamped the leaf image in Mossy Meadow Ink on a panel of Mossy Meadow cardstock. I cut the images out using the Sunflower Dies. I cut the detail leaf image from the panel of Mossy Meadow cardstock and the sprig and flower center dies from a panel of Cajun Craze cardstock.

Stampin' Up! Celebrate Sunflowers 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

I adhered the flower center using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the flower to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the detailed leaves to the stamped leaves using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the leaves and sprigs behind the sunflower using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I stamped the sentiment from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Versamark Ink on a panel of Cajun Craze cardstock. I sprinkled it with my White Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I cut the sentiment out using the Stitched Rectangle Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I tied a small bow using the Black & White 1/4″ Gingham Ribbon and adhered it to the sentiment using a Glue Dot. I added a few Iridescent Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

Stampin' Up! Celebrate Sunflowers 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Cajun Craze Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the small sunflower image from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom of the panel. I colored the image using my Cajun Craze and Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blends Markers. I colored the flower petals using my Crushed Curry Watercolor Pencil from the Watercolor Pencil Assortment #2. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Mossy Meadow mat and then to the inside of the Cajun Craze card base.

Stampin’ Up! Cottage Rose for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. I hope everyone had a great week and you are looking forward to an even better weekend. I’ll be at work both days this weekend.

I’m sorry I missed my Facebook live this past Wednesday. Something came up last minute and we had to leave the house by 4:30, nothing bad though. So since I couldn’t go live this week, I decided to hold onto the card I was going to make and come up with something else quick. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Cottage Rose Fun Fold 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Cottage Rose Bundle along with the Abigail Rose Designer Series Paper for my card today.

Here is a template of my card.

Stampin' Up! Cottage Rose Fun Fold 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

Once I made all my score and cut lines and folded the card, I adhered panels of Abigail Rose DSP to the front and sides of the card base. On a panel of Crumb Cake cardstock, I stamped the large rose image form the Stampin’ Up! Cottage Rose Cling Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink. I colored the rose using my Watercolor Pencils. I colored the leaves using the Old Olive Watercolor Pencil. For the rose, I first colored it with my White Watercolor Pencil then I went over the highlighted areas with my Flirty Flaming Watercolor Pencil. I cut the rose out using my Cottage Flowers Dies, I also cut the detailed flowers from a panel of Petal Pink cardstock and the detailed leaves from a panel of Old Olive cardstock.

Stampin' Up! Cottage Rose Fun Fold 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

I adhered the detailed flowers and leaves to the back of the large rose image using Glue Dots. I did leave some of the solid pieces in the detailed flowers. I adhered the rose collage to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Cottage Rose Fun Fold 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Cottage Rose stamp set in Soft Suede Ink. I cut the sentiment out using the 2nd smallest die from the Stitched Rectangle Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the bottom of the panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

Stampin' Up! Cottage Rose Fun Fold 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside, I stamped the sentiments from the Cottage Rose stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on a panel of Abigail Rose DSP. I adhered the stamped panel to a Petal Pink mat and then to the inside of the Pear Pizzazz card base.

Stampin' Up! Cottage Rose Fun Fold 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To finish my card, I decorated a Very Vanilla Medium Envelope. I stamped the leaf image from the Cottage Rose stamp set in Old Olive Ink along the bottom front of the envelope. I adhered a panel of Abigail Rose DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Ringed With Nature for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. I hope everyone is doing well today. If you are hopping over from Akiko’s blog, thank you for stopping by. This week we have a Sketch Challenge. Here is my card using this week’s Sketch.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Ringed With Nature Bundle along with the Sale-a-bration Rings of Love Designer Series Paper for my card today.

This is this week’s sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of Rings of Love DSP to an Evening Evergreen card bases. I embossed a panel of Vellum paper using the Leaf Fall 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to the card front. On a strip of Parakeet Party cardstock, I stamped the leaf image from the Stampin’ Up! Ringed With Nature Photopolymer Stamp Set in Parakeet Party Ink. I adhered the strip to the card front on the Vellum panel.

Using the tree Rings Dies and Tree Rings Hybrid Embossing Folder, I cut a panel of Crumb Cake cardstock. I took the largest tree ring die and brushed Soft Suede Ink around the edge using my Spong Dauber. I adhered the die to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. On a strip of Evening Evergreen cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Ringed With Nature stamp set in Versamark Ink. I sprinkled it with my White Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I cut the sentiment out using the smallest die from the Stitched Rectangle Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut 2 of the thinner leaf dies from the Tree Rings Dies from a panel of Parakeet Party cardstock, I cut one of the larger leaf dies from a panel of Evening Evergreen cardstock. I adhered the leaf dies just under the sentiment using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I colored the berries on one of the sprig Textural Elements using my Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the sprig on top of the leaves just under the sentiment using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the tree ring image from the Ringed With Nature stamp set in Soft Suede Ink, stamping off twice on scrap paper, on a Basic White panel. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Happiness Abounds Photopolymer Stamp Set in Evening Evergreen Ink over the tree rings. I stamped the heart image from the Ringed With Nature stamp set in Poppy Parade Ink on top of the sentiment. I stamped the leaf image from the Ringed With Nature stamp set in Parakeet Party Ink on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Soft Suede mat and then to the inside of the Evening Evergreen card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the tree ring image from the Ringed With Nature stamp set in soft Suede Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper, on the envelope front. I stamped the heart image from the Ringed With Nature stamp set in Poppy Parade Ink on top of the tree ring image. I stamped the leaf image in Parakeet Party next to the tree ring. I adhered a panel of Rings of Love DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Sending Charming Smiles

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone’s weekend going? I worked all day yesterday and was it ever busy. I’m working at the dog bakery today and it’s supposed to be another beautiful day, so I’m guessing it’ll be a busy one. Hopefully lots of pups will come is so we can give them treats.

I have a clean and simple card today. I’m trying to come up with designs for my card class this week. I have a couple new ladies coming and I’m not sure of their style. I’m trying to keep things a little on the simpler side. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Sending Smiles Bundle along with the Stampin’ Up! Charming Sentiments Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Subtle 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by adhering a panel of Subtle DSP to a Petal Pink card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the stem images from the Sending Smiles stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink. I stamped the flower images from the Sending Smiles stamp set in Petal Pink Ink on the double stem. I stamped the flower centers in So Saffron Ink.

I cut the panel out using the 2nd largest Stitched Rectangle Dies. I stamped the sentiment from the Charming Sentiments stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink on the top of the panel. On a scrap of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the small flower image from the Sending Smiles stamp set in Orchid Oasis Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper. I cut the flower out using my Sending dies. I adhered the cut flower to the smaller stem using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the stamped panel to a panel of Mint Macaron cardstock on an angle using Stampin’ Seal.

I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Charming Sentiments stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the stem image from the Sending Smiles stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the flower images from the Sending Smiles stamp set in Petal Pink Ink and the flower centers in So Saffron Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Mint Macaron mat and then to the inside of the Petal Pink card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the stems from the Sending Smiles stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink on the envelope front. I stamped the flower images from the Sending Smiles stamp set in Orchid Oasis, stamped off once on scrap paper, and Petal Pink Ink on the stems. I stamped the flower centers in So Saffron Ink. I adhered a panel of Subtle 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!!
