Stampin’ Up! In Your Words Gift Card Holder

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends. I hope we all can take a moment of silence today to remember those that lost their lives and lost loved ones 20 years ago. I can remember exactly where I was and what I was doing before I was glued to the television watching what was happening to us. It’s truly something that will never be forgotten. For me it was less than an hour away from my home and I can admit about how really scared I was. I hope you have some fun plans for the weekend. It’s suppose to be a gorgeous one here in NJ. I’ll be working today, but I have tomorrow off, YAY!!

Today I have a gift card holder for you using some of the adorable Sale-a-bration Designer Series Paper and stamp set. Here’s my card for today.

I used 2 Sale-a-bration items for my card today. I used the Stampin’ Up! In Your Words Sale-a-bration Host Cling Stamp Set and the Penguin Playmates Designer Series Paper. The Designer Series Paper you can earn FREE with a qualifying order of $50. The stamp set you can earn FREE with either a qualifying order of $300 or if you have a workshop of $300 or more. If you are interested in getting some friends together to order, I’d be more than happy to set up a Host Code so that you can earn the stamp set along with other Stampin’ Rewards products. Just drop me a note at creativestampingdesigns@gmail.com and I’d be happy to talk to you about it.

I started by scoring and folding a 12″ X 5 1/4″ panel of the Penguin Playmates DSP at 4″ and 8″. On the first score line at 4″ I cut from the top of the score line to the bottom left outside corner creating the triangle. I added a very thin line of Multipurpose Liquid Glue along the bottom edge of the triangle and adhered it to the center.

I adhered the folded DSP to a Misty Moonlight panel using Multipurpose Liquid Gluemaking sure the triangle panel is in the front.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the In Your Words stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink. I cut the sentiment out using my Stitched Rectangle Dies. I adhered the sentiment to a Misty Moonlight mat using Stampin’ Seal.

I adhered a length of the Misty Moonlight & Silver Bakers Twine from the Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack to the card front using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered sentiment over the twine using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Opal Rounds to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the In Your Words stamp set to a panel of Basic White cardstock in Misty Moonlight Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Misty Moonlight mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of the Penguin Playmates 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 Gift Card Holder and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Seasons of Fun 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 Sudano’s blog, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we have a Theme Challenge. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects. Here is my card using this weeks Theme.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Seasons of Fun Host Cling Stamp Set along with the Beauty of The Earth Designer Series Paper for my card today.

Our Theme this week is Autumn/Harvest.

I started by adhering a panel of Beauty of The Earth DSP to a Cajun Craze mat using Stampin’ Seal then to a Mossy Meadow card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the fall image from the Seasons of Fun stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image using my Basic Black, Cajun Craze, Cherry Cobbler, Cinnamon Cider, Ivory, Misty Moonlight, Night of Navy and Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image out using the 5th largest Stitched Rectangle Dies. The die wasn’t the size that I wanted, so I cut the top half, moved the die to the size I wanted lining up the stitches, turned the image and cut the bottom half. I adhered the artwork to a Mossy Meadow mat using Stampin’ Seal then to a Cajun Craze mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Using my Playful Alphabet Dies, I cut the letters from a panel of Cajun Craze and Mossy Meadow cardstocks. I adhered the letters together making a shadow effect using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the letters to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Tomorrow Cling Stamp Set in Mossy Meadow Ink. I stamped the large splotch image from the Stampin’ Up! Gorgeous Leaves Cling Stamp Set in Cajun Craze Ink, stamping off once, over the sentiment . I stamped the small trio of leaves image from the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set in Cajun Craze Ink on the corners of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Cajun Craze mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Mossy Meadow card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the small leaf image from the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set in Cajun Craze Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of Beauty of The Earth 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! Penguin Place

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends. How was your long weekend? It’s back to work today, but it will be a nice short week.

For today’s card I used some of the Sale-a-bration Designer Series Paper that you can earn for FREE with a qualifying order. Here’s my card for today.

I used the adorable Stampin’ Up! Penguin Place Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Sale-a-bration Penguin Playmates Designer Series Paper for my card today. This DSP can be earned FREE with a qualifying order.

I started with 2 panels of Penguin Playmates DSP and cut them both on a diagonal using my Paper Trimmer. I adhered both panels to a Misty Moonlight card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered a strip of Basic White cardstock between the DSP panels using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and trimmed the excess using my Paper Snips.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiments from the Penguin Place stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink. I cut the sentiment out using my Stitched Rectangle Dies. I adhered the sentiment to a Fresh Freesia mat using Stampin’ Seal and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I tied a small bow using the White 3/8″ Glittered Organdy Ribbon and adhered it to the sentiment using a Glue Dot. I added a few Blue Adhesive Backed Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Penguin Place stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the penguin image from the Penguin Place stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the bow tie and hat images from the Penguin Place stamp set in Fresh Freesia Ink and the beak in Pumpkin Pie Ink.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the penguin image from the Penguin Place stamp set on the envelope front the same as I did for the inside of the card. I adhered a panel of the Penguin Playmates 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! Encircled In Warmth for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends. Welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Welcome to the long weekend. Does anyone have any plans? I believe I will be working both days, I’m not sure since I couldn’t go into the dog bakery yesterday. Unfortunately our town was under water from Ida and the businesses in town were closed. There was a lot of damage around our town, flooding, abandon cars, fires etc. Luckily I didn’t get any damage inside my house, but out property was flooded. If all goes as planned, I’ll be heading to the sunflower maze first thing this morning. From what we heard, where we’re going, they weren’t harmed by Ida, just the rain. I’ll share some pictures if we do get there.

I wasn’t able to go live on Wednesday because of my work schedule. I plan on being live again next Wednesday though. I made a Gift Card holder for today’s fun fold card.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Encircled In Warmth Cling Stamp Set along with the Peaceful Prints Designer Series Paper for my card today. This is one of the FREE DSP’s from the August-September Sale-a-bration catalog with a qualifying order.

I started by scoring and folding a panel of Peaceful Prints DSP at 4″ & 8″. I cut the left side of the panel from the top of the 4″ score line to the bottom left corner using my Paper Trimmer. I used a tiny bead of Multipurpose Liquid Glue along the bottom and adhered it to the center of the folded panel.

I stamped the sentiment from the Encircled In Warmth stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I cut the sentiment out using my Stitched Rectangle Dies. I adhered the sentiment to a Cherry Cobbler mat using Stampin’ Seal.

I adhered the layered panel to the front of the DSP panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Cherry Cobbler Matte Decorative Dots to the card front.

I cut a panel of Basic White cardstock on an angle and embossed it using my Wintry 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the embossed panel to the inside left of the DSP using a thin bead of Multipurpose Liquid Glue along the bottom and right side of the triangle. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Encircled In Warmth stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink. I cut the sentiment out using my Tailored made Tags Dies. I threaded a piece of Black Bakers Twine from the Bakers Twine Essential Pack through the top of the tag. I adhered the DSP to a Cherry Cobbler base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my gift card holder I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of the Peaceful Prints 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 fun fold and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Delicate Dahlias

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. Happy September!!! I can’t believe another month is gone. My daughter starts in person school today again, YAY!!! That means I get to start running her to the train station 3 mornings a week to catch a 7:30am train. She’s happy to be going back in person and to meet up with the friends she’s met online from her classes from the last couple semesters.

For today’s card I used one of my favorite Sale-a-bration sets that’s available right now. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Delicate Dahlias Sale-a-bration Photopolymer Stamp Set along with Bloom Where You’re Planted Designer Series Paper for today’s card.

My design is from Sunday Stamps Challenge #264.

I started by randomly stamping the large dahlia image from the Delicate Dahlias SAB stamp set in Pale Papaya Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the leaf image from the Delicate Dahlia stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink around the dahlia images using the Masking Technique. I cut the image out using my Stitched Rectangle Dies. I adhered the artwork to a Soft Succulent mat using Stampin’ Seal.

I adhered 2 panels of Bloom Where You’re Planted DSP to a panel of Soft Succulent cardstock using Stampin’ Seal. I wrapped a piece of 1/2″ Pale Papaya Woven Ribbon around the panel, adhering it to the back using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to a Soft Succulent card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the matted artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Delicate Dahlias stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink. On a small panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the small flower image from the Delicate Dahlias stamp set in Pale Papaya Ink and fussy cut the image using my Paper Snips. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the flower to the end of the sentiment using a Stampin’ Dimensional. I added a few 2021-2023 In-Color Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Delicate Dahlias stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the dahlia image from the Delicate Dahlias stamp set in Pale Papaya Ink on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the leaf image from the Delicate Dahlias stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink by the dahlia image. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Pale Papaya mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Soft Succulent card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basie White Medium Envelope. I stamped the dahlia image from the Delicate Dahlias stamp set in Pale Papaya Ink on the envelope front and the leaf image in Soft Succulent Ink. I adhered a panel of Bloom Where You’re Planted 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! Sparkle of The Season for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. Does anyone have any plans for the weekend yet? I’ll be working all day Saturday and Sunday at both jobs.

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’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Sparkle of The Season Bundle for my card today along with the Beauty of The Earth Designer Series Paper and the Cork Specialty Paper.

I started by adhering a panel of the Cork Specialty Paper to a Misty Moonlight card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I cut a panel of Cajun Craze cardstock using the Stitched Rectangle Dies and embossed it using the Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing Folder. I sponge some Cajun Craze Ink on the embossed panel using my Stamping Sponge. I adhered the embossed panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut out 2 of the swirly wreaths using the Seasonal Swirls Dies, 1 in Gold Metallic Specialty Paper and the other in Early Espresso cardstock. I cut multiple leaves from scraps of Bumblebee, Cherry Cobbler, Pumpkin Pie and Soft Succulent cardstocks. I cut the leaves and adhered them to the Early Espresso wreath using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the Gold wreath to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and the Early Espresso wreath over the Gold wreath using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I cut 3 of the pumpkins from the Seasonal Swirls Dies and adhered them to the wreath using Glue Dots.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Sparkle of The Season Photopolymer Stamp Set in Cajun Craze Ink. I cut the sentiment out using the Ornate Frames Dies. I made a multiloop bow from Linen Thread and tied it with a piece of White Bakers Twine, from the Bakers Twine Essential Pack, which I colored using my Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends Marker. I adhered the bow to the wreath using a Glue Dot and adhered the sentiment under the bow using a Glue Dot and Stampin’ Dimensional.

On the inside I adhered 2 panels of Cajun Craze cardstock using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. For the insert I used a panel of Beauty of The Earth DSP. I scored the panel first in half then diagonally from corner to corner both ways. The center half score line I folded as a mountain fold and the corner to corner score lines as valley folds. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card using Tear and Tape on the sides of the panel.

This is how the card will look from a top view. The top and bottom portion of the DSP will be the mountain folds.

I cut 2 of the largest triangles from the Stitched Triangle Dies from a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the sentiment from the Sparkle of The Season stamp set on the left triangle in Cajun Craze Ink. I stamped the branch/leaf image from the Sparkle of The Season stamp set in Bumblebee, Cherry Cobbler and Pumpkin Pie Inks, stamping off once on both of the triangles. I adhered the triangles to the 2 sides of the DSP using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of the Beauty of The Earth DSP to the bottom front of the envelope. I stamped the branch/leaves image from the Sparkle of The Season stamp set in Bumblebee and Cherry Cobbler Inks. I adhered a panel of the Beauty of The Earth 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. If you do CASE this card, please feel free to post it in the comments of my Facebook page under the post. I’d love to see your take on the card. The list of measurements are below if you’d like to stamp along while watching the video. You can watch my video on my Facebook page Here.

Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Tomorrow 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 Sudano’s blog, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we have a Sketch Challenge. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects. Here is my card using this weeks Sketch.

I used the new Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Tomorrow Bundle along with the Beauty of The Earth Designer Series Paper for my card today.

Here’s our sketch for this week.

I started by adhering a panel of Beauty of The Earth DSP to a Misty Moonlight card base using Stampin’ Seal.

I cut a panel of Basic White cardstock using my Stitched Rectangle Dies. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Tomorrow Cling Stamp Set in Misty Moonlight Ink on the bottom of the rectangle. I stamped the leafy image from the Beauty of Tomorrow stamp set in Bumblebee Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper, on the side of the sentiment. I stamped the floral leaf image from the Beauty of Tomorrow stamp set in Cajun Craze Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper, on the other side of the sentiment. On a scrap of Basic White cardstock I stamped the bird image from the Beauty of Tomorrow stamp set in Cinnamon Cider Ink and cut it out using the Beautiful Leaves Dies.

I adhered the stitched rectangle to a Misty Moonlight mat using Stampin’ Seal. I wrapped a piece of Misty Moonlight/Silver Bakers Twine from the Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack around the top of the layered panel twice and tied a bow. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the bird to the panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few 2020-2022 In-Color Square Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Beauty of Tomorrow stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the leafy image from the Beauty of Tomorrow stamp set in Bumblebee Ink, stamping off once, on the side of the panel. I adhered a strip of Beauty of The Earth DSP to the bottom of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Misty Moonlight mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Misty Moonlight card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the leafy image from the Beauty of Tomorrow stamp set in Bumblebee Ink on the envelope 3 times without reinking the stamp. I stamped the bird image from the Beauty of Tomorrow stamp set in Cinnamon Cider Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of Beauty of The Earth DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Elegantly Said Anniversary

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone doing today? We’re halfway through the week and on our way to the weekend and a new month. I can’t believe July is just about over

Today I have a card that could be used as either an Anniversary Card or a Wedding Card. I made mine into an Anniversary Card. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Elegantly Said Cling Stamp Set and the Simply Elegant Specialty Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by adhering a panel of the Simply Elegant Specialty DSP to a Copper Foil mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to a Very Vanilla card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered another panel of the Simply Elegant Spec. DSP to a Very Vanilla mat using Stampin’ Seal and adhered it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Elegantly Said stamp set in Versamark Ink. I immediately sprinkled it with my Copper Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I cut the sentiment out using my Stitched Rectangle Dies and adhered it to a Copper Foil mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the matted sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Brushed Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dots, (available Aug 3rd), to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the flourish image from the Elegantly Said stamp set in Versamark Ink on the top corner of a Very Vanilla panel. I immediately sprinkled it with my Copper Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I stamped the sentiment from the Elegantly Said stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the panel. I adhered a strip of the Simply Elegant Spec DSP to the bottom of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Basic Black mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Very Vanilla card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To finish my card I decorated a Very Vanilla Medium Envelope. I stamped the flower image from the Elegantly Said stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the Simply Elegant 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!!

Stampin’ Up! In Symmetry CAS

I used the Stampin’ Up! In Symmetry Photopolymer Stamp Set for my card along with the Sweet Symmetry Designer Series Paper.

I started by adhering a panel of the Sweet Symmetry DSP to a Calypso Coral mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the matted panel to a Just Jade card base using Stampin’
Dimensionals.

I cut a panel of Basic White cardstock using my Stitched Rectangle Dies. I stamped the sentiment from the In Symmetry stamp set in Just Jade Ink on the top of the panel. On the bottom of the panel I first stamped the stem for the flower in Just Jade Ink. I stamped the leaf image from the In Symmetry stamp set in Just Jade Ink on the stem. I stamped the large flower image from the In Symmetry stamp set in Calypso Coral Ink on top of the stem

I adhered the artwork to a panel of Calypso Coral cardstock using Stampin’ Seal on an angle. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a Bumblebee Matte Decorative Dot (available Aug 3rd), to the flower center.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Inspired Thoughts Cling Stamp Set in Just Jade Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the stem and leaf images from the In Symmetry stamp set in Just Jade Ink on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the large flower image from the In Symmetry stamp set on the stem in Calypso Coral Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Calypso Coral mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Just Jade card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the flower/stem/leaves images from the In Symmetry stamp set on the envelope front in Calypso Coral and Just Jade Inks. I adhered a panel of the Sweet Symmetry DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Harvest 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 Sudano’s blog, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we have a Sketch Challenge. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects. I have a sneak peek for you today from the July-December 2021 Mini Catalog. Here is my card using this weeks Sketch.

I used the new Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Harvest Bundle along with the Harvest Meadow Designer Series Paper and the Cork Specialty Paper for my card today. These items will all be available August 3rd from the July-December 2021 Mini Catalog.

This is our sketch we had to work with this week.

I started by adhering a panel of the Harvest Meadow DSP to a Bumblebee card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I cut a panel of the Cork Specialty Paper using the 3rd from largest Stitched Rectangle Dies and adhered it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the cone flower image from the Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Harvest Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image in using my Highland Heather and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers. I didn’t want the flowers so purple so I colored over the flower again using my Balmy Blue Stampin’ Blends Marker to get more of a periwinkle color. I colored the flower center in using my Bumblebee Stampin’ Write Marker. I cut the image out using my Harvest Dies. I adhered the flower to the Cork using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Biggest Wish Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I cut the sentiment out using the Harvest Dies. I adhered a length of the 3/8″ Diamond Weave Ribbon (available August 3rd) to the bottom of the cork using a tiny amount of Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the sentiment on top of the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Brushed Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dots (available August 3rd) to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Nature’s Harvest stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the cone flower image from the Nature’s Harvest stamp set on the bottom of the panel in Tuxedo Black Ink and colored it the same as I did for the card front. I adhered the Basic White panel to an Old Olive mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Bumblebee card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the cone flower image from the Nature’s Harvest stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and colored it the same as I did for the card front. I adhered a panel of Harvest Meadow 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.
