Stampin’ Up! Whale Done for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Are you ready for the weekend? Some of you may have already started your weekend. I’m actually off today and I’ll be making Easter egg bread all day. Except for last year, I always take Good Friday to spend making my bread since it’s an all day affair with all the risings and shaping and baking. If I’m lucky in between risings I’ll get to run to my craft area and play for a bit. Is anyone having Easter dinner at their house? I’ll be having Easter brunch with my family, my niece and her family and my nephew. Nice quiet early afternoon.

Before I forget, yesterday I was able to order the new 2021-2022 Annual Catalogs. Are you a customer of mine? If so, you will be getting one in the mail as soon as I get them. If you’d like to be a customer of mine and would like a copy of the catalog, send me an email at creativestampingdesigns@gmail.com and I will get one in the mail to you. I was also able to order some new goodies from the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog. I can’t wait to share what I got and wait till you see the new 2021-2023 In-Colors. They are gorgeous!!!

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! Whale Done Photopolymer Stamp Set for my card today.

I started by scoring and folding a Night of Navy card base. On the 8 1/4″ side I scored at 1″, 2″, 3″, 5 1/4″, 6 1/4″ & 7 1/4″. I turned the card a 1/4 turn and placed the edge on the 1″ mark of my Paper Trimmer and cut from the 1″ score line to the 3″ score line, then from the 5 1/4″ score line to the 7 1/4′ score line. I moved the edge to the 2″ mark on my trimmer and made the same cuts. I put the opposite edge on the 1″ mark on my trimmer and made the same cuts, moved it to the 2″ mark and made the same cuts again. I folded the card as pictured in the template below.

Here is a view of how it looks from the top.

I adhered strips of the Whale of a Time Designer Series Paper to the 2 long side panels and the top and bottom of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I cut a panel of the Whale of a Time DSP using the largest square from the Stitched Shapes Dies and adhered it to the center using Stampin’ Seal.

I cut a panel of Basic White cardstock using the largest square from the Stitched Shapes Dies. I stamped the jellyfish image from the Whale Done stamp set in Versamark Ink on the top of the square. I immediately sprinkled it with my Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. Using my Blending Brush, I added some Pool Party Ink on the panel. The embossed jellyfish resisted the ink. I stamped the seaweed image from the Whale Done stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the coral image from the Whale Done stamp set in Calypso Coral Ink on the bottom center of the panel. I adhered the stitched square to the card base using a little Multipurpose Liquid Glue in the center and Glue Dots on the corners. On a separate panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the turtle image from the Whale Done stamp set 3 times in Soft Suede Ink. I colored the turtles in using my Granny Apple Green, Just Jade and Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers. I fussy cut all the turtles using my Paper Snips. I adhered the turtles to the stitched square using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Clear Epoxy Droplets from the Frosted & Clear Epoxy Droplets (I forgot to add these on my video)

On the back of the card base I adhered strips of Whale of a Time DSP to either side of the card base. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Whale Done stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink. I stamped the fish image twice from the Whale Done stamp set in Calypso Coral Ink, stamping off once, over the sentiment. I stamped the seahorse image from the Whale Done stamp set in Soft Suede Ink to the side of the sentiment. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Pool Party mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the back of the Night of Navy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the seaweed image from the Whale Done stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink on the front of the envelope. I stamped the coral and fish images from the Whale Done stamp set in Calypso Coral Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of Whale of a Time 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. 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! Flowering Cactus for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends Happy April!!! Welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. I hope everyone is doing well today. If you are hopping over from Akiko, 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 amazing projects. Here is my card using this weeks sketch.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Flowering Cactus Product Medley for my card. This is such a great group of products, I’m going to be sorry to see it retire.

I started by embossing a Mossy Meadow card front using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the card front to Calypso Coral card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut 2 panel of the Flowering Cactus Designer Series Paper using my Stitched Rectangle Dies. I adhered the 2 panels together on an angle using Stampin’ Seal then adhered them to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I cut a panel of Basic White cardstock using the Stitched Shapes Dies. I stamped the sentiment from the Flowering Cactus stamp set on the stitched circle in Mossy Meadow Ink. From a panel of Mossy Meadow cardstock I cut a coordinating scalloped circle from the Layering Circles Dies and adhered the stitched circle to it using Stampin’ Seal. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the small cactus image from the Flowering Cactus stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink. I stamped the small double flower image in Calypso Coral Ink 3 times. I cut the images out using my Flowering Cactus Dies. I adhered the flowers to the cactus using Glue Dots. I adhered the cactus to the bottom of the stitched circle using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I tied a multi loop bow using the Calypso Coral twine from the Product Medley, and adhered it to the bottom of the stitched circle using a Glue Dot. I adhered the circle 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 Flowering Cactus stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink in the center of the Basic White panel. I stamped the small cactus from the Flowering Cactus stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on the bottom of the panel twice. I stamped 1 set of the flowers on each cactus in Calypso Coral Ink and adhered another flower which I had cut out using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Mossy Meadow mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Calypso Coral card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of the Flowering Cactus DSP to the envelope front and a panel to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Flowering Cactus for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Are you ready for the weekend? I’ll be working both days again.

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! Flowering Cactus Product Medley for my card today.

I started by adhering a panel of the Flowering Cactus Designer Series Paper to the front of a Mint Macaron card base using Stampin’ Seal.

I adhered a strip of the Flowering Cactus DSP to the inside edge of the Mint Macaron card base using Stampin’ Seal.

I cut a panel of Basic White cardstock using the largest square from the Stitched Shapes Dies. I stamped the sand image from the Flowering Cactus Photopolymer Stamp Set in Sahara Sand Ink on the Basic White square. I stamped the smallest cactus from the Flowering Cactus stamp set on the top of the panel in Mossy Meadow Ink twice. I stamped the flower image on each of the cactus in Calypso Coral Ink. I cut the tall thin cactus image using my Cactus Dies from a panel of Pear Pizzazz cardstock and adhered it to the panel using Glue Dots. From a panel of the Flowering Cactus DSP I cut the other cactus and flower images out using the Cactus Dies. I adhered the smaller cactus to the Basic White panel using Glue Dots. I adhered the larger cactus image to the panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the flower to the larger cactus using Glue Dots. On a strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Flowering Cactus stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink and adhered it to the top of the cactus using Glue Dots. I adhered the artwork to a Mint Macaron mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the matted panel to a Basic White mat using Stampin’ Seal. I wrapped a piece of the Linen Thread around the 1 1/4″ fold twice and tied a knot. I adhered the matted artwork on the 1 1 4/” panel over the knot using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Flowering Cactus stamp set in the center of a Basic White panel in Mossy Meadow Ink. I stamped the medium cactus from the Flowering Cactus stamp set on the bottom of the panel in Mint Macaron Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to the inside of the Mint Macaron card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the cactus images from the Flowering Cactus stamp set on the front of the envelope in Mint Macaron and Mossy Meadow. I stamped the flowers on the cactus in Calypso Coral. I adhered a panel of the Flowering Cactus DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! A Touch Of Ink Thank You

Good Saturday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to the weekend. Does anyone have any plans? I’ll be at work all day today and tomorrow. Tomorrow is the last day of the month so I have to close out the books. Hopefully it will be a short day. Speaking of the last day of the month, Sale-A-Bration ends tomorrow. Don’t miss out on those awesome stamp sets and Designer Series Paper.

For today I used one more of the Sale-A-Bration stamp sets and DSP for my card. Even though Sale-A-Bration was 2 months, I feel like I didn’t have enough time to play with everything. Here’s my card for today.

I used the beautiful Stampin’ Up! A Touch Of Ink Photopolymer Stamp Set for my card along with the gorgeous Oh So Ombre 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper.

I started by adhering a panel of the Oh So Ombre DSP to a Basic White mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the matted panel to a Blackberry Bliss card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On another strip of the Oh So Ombre DSP I stamped the sentiment from A Touch Of Ink stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the lightest end of the paper. I cut the strip into a banner using my Banner Triple Punch and adhered it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the outline flower, outline leaves and the outline hummingbird images from A Touch Of Ink stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the images in using my Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green, Just Jade, Poppy Parade, Purple Posy and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image out using largest circle from my Stitched Shapes Dies. I cut the largest scalloped circle from the Layering Circle Dies from a panel of Basic White cardstock and adhered the artwork to the scalloped circle using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the matted artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Purple Posy Playing With Patterns Resin Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Thanks Photopolymer Stamp Set in tuxedo Black Ink towards the top of a Basic White panel. I stamped the leaves image from A Touch Of Ink stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink in the corner of the panel and colored them in using my Just Jade Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to an Oh So Ombre mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Blackberry Bliss card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the outlined flower and outlined leaves images from A Touch Of Ink stamp set on the envelope front. I colored the images in using my Daffodil Delight, Just Jade and Purple Posy Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of the Oh So Ombre 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! A Touch Of Ink for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Are you ready for the weekend? I’ll be working both days this weekend. It’s the end of the month so I have to work in the office for a bit on Sunday.

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. I used the Stampin’ Up! A Touch Of Ink Sale-A-Bration Photopolymer Stamp Set and Paper Blooms Designer Series Paper for my card. These 2 items will only be available for 2 more days. Sale-A-Bration ends on Sunday February 28, 2021. Here’s my card for today.

I played along with Festive Friday Challenge #0078. I have Flower, Glitter (the gems), it’s for Girls/Women, there’s a Fun Fold and Female Sentiment.

I started by adhering a Petal Pink panel to the front of my Night of Navy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered a Paper Blooms DSP card front to a Rococo Rose mat using Stampin’ Seal.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the outline butterfly image from A Touch Of Ink stamp set in Night of Navy Ink. I stamped over the outline with the fill image in Petal Pink Ink. I cut the image out using my Stitched Shapes Dies. I adhered it to a Night of Navy square mat, that I cut using my Layering Squares Dies, using Stampin’ Seal.

I stamped the sentiment from A Touch Of Ink stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock and cut it out using my Stitched Shapes Dies. I adhered it to a Night of Navy mat which I also cut using my Stitched Shapes Dies. I took a 2″ X 6″ strip of Night of Navy card stock and scored it at 2″ & 2 1/4″. I punched the longer end using my Scalloped Tag Topper Punch. I adhered the sentiment to the shorter end, before the 1st score line of the Night of Navy strip, only putting adhesive on the left side of the sentiment. I folded on the 2 score lines and adhered the matted butterfly image on the edge of the 2nd score line using Tear & Tape Adhesive. Using my Classic Label Punch, I centered it from side to side on the card front and pushed the card front in as far as it would go and punched the label. I inserted the Night of Navy strip from the front to the back of the card front, inserting the scalloped end in first. I added Tear & Tape Adhesive just to the outside edge of the sentiment and adhered it to the card front about 1/2″ from the right side. I adhered the card front to the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Blue Adhesive-Backed Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Happy Thoughts Cling
Stamp Set
in the center of a Basic White panel in Night of Navy Ink. I stamped the outline butterfly image from A Touch Of Ink stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the butterfly fill image over the outlined image in Petal Pink Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Petal Pink mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Night of Navy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the butterfly image from A Touch Of Ink stamp set on the envelope front the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of Paper Blooms 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. 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.

You can also view the video on my YouTube channel Here. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Zany Zebras Baby Card

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. We’re halfway through the week and heading towards the weekend. How is your week going?

It’s time for another inspiration challenge for The Card Concept. For the next 2 weeks we have a Welcome Wee One challenge. Here is my card that was inspired from the challenge photo.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Zany Zebras Cling Stamp Set for my card today. I was inspired by the colors in the photo and the zebra rug under the ottoman.

I hope you will take a moment to visit The Card Concept and join use this week to play along with our challenge #149. How are you inspired by this photo?

I started by adhering a panel of Playing With Patterns 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Cinnamon Cider mat using Stampin’ Seal.

I embossed a panel of Petal Pink using the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I wrapped a piece of 1/4″ Coastal Cabana ribbon from the Playing With Patterns Ribbon Combo Pack around the card front and tied a bow. I adhered the card front to a Cinnamon Cider card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! So Sentimental Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I cut the strip into a banner using the Banner Triple Punch and adhered it to the top of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On another panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the adorable zebra image from the Zany Zebras stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink and cut the image out using my Stitched Shapes Dies. I colored the zebras ear, nose and mouth using my Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the image to the card front overlapping the Petal Pink panel and the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Coastal Cabana Playing With Patterns Resin Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Oval Occasions Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the zebra image from the Zany Zebras stamp set on the bottom of the panel in Tuxedo Black Ink and colored the inside of the ears, nose and mouth with my Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Petal Pink mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Cinnamon Cider card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the zebra image from the Zany Zebras stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and colored the ear, nose and mouth using my Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of the Playing With Patterns 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! Art Gallery Quick and Easy Card Pack

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends. How has everyone’s weekend started off? I’ll be at work all day today and tomorrow. Last I heard, we will not be getting snow this weekend, but it’s still early to tell.

Today I have something a little different for you. I don’t have step by step instructions for you since I made a pack of cards. This would make a great gift for someone tied up with some ribbon or put in one of our Acetate Card Boxes and decorated. If you have any questions about any of the cards, please message me and I will explain how I made them. Here are the cards.

I used 1 sheet of the Fine Art Floral Designer Series Paper and 1 sheet of the Golden Garden Designer Series Acetate to make all 6 cards. I placed the acetate over the DSP, tacked it in a couple places using Glue Dots and cut 4″ X 5 1/4″ panels.

This card I used So Saffron and Poppy Parade cardstock and just did a simple layering. I stamped the sentiment from Stampin’ Up! Many Messages Cling Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink and cut it our with the Messages Dies. Adhered it to Hippo and Friends die cut mat and adhered it to the card front.

This card I used Petal Pink and Terracotta Tile cardstock and just did a simple layering. I stamped the sentiment from Stampin’ Up! Dressed To Impress Photopolymer Stamp Set in Old Olive Ink and cut it our with the Label Me Fancy Punch and adhered it to the card front. Stamped the large flower from the Stampin’ Up! Art Gallery Photopolymer Stamp Set in Petal Pink & Terracotta Tile, stem in Old Olive and cut images out with Floral Gallery Dies.

This card I used Bumblebee and Old Olive cardstock and just did a simple layering. I stamped the sentiment from Stampin’ Up! Strong & Beautiful Cling Stamp Set in Old Olive Ink, cut it our with the Stitched Nested Labels Dies and adhered it to the card front. Stamped the flower from the Stampin’ Up! Art Gallery Photopolymer Stamp Set using my Bumblebee and Old Olive Stampin’ Write Markers and cut image out with Floral Gallery Dies.

This card I used Pool Party and Night of Navy cardstock and just did an angle layering. I stamped the sentiment from Stampin’ Up! Art Gallery Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink, cut it out with the Floral Gallery Dies and the large sentiment out of Night of Navy cardstock and adhered them to the card front.

This card I used Blushing Bride and Merry Merlot cardstock and just did a simple layering. I stamped the sentiment from Stampin’ Up! Strong & Beautiful Cling Stamp Set in Merry Merlot Ink, cut it our with the Stitched Shapes Dies. I cut a scalloped mat from Merry Merlot cardstock using the Layering Ovals Dies, adhered the sentiment and adhered it to the card front.

This card I used Flirty Flamingo and Mossy Meadow cardstock and just did a simple layering. I stamped the sentiment from Stampin’ Up!

Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Brilliance Birthday for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Is anyone doing anything for the weekend? I’ll be working all weekend 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 very much. 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 that I made.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Brilliance Bundle, coming March 2nd, and the Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Wishes Cling Stamp Set for my fun fold card. I played along with the Aud Sentiments Challenge #268, ‘Anything Goes + A Sentiment’. I also played along with Watercooler Wednesday Challenge #308.

I started by scoring and cutting a Misty Moonlight card base at 1 3/4″, 3 1/2″, 5 1/4″ & 7″. I lined the long edge of the card base at the 1 1/4″ mark on my trimmer and cut from the 1 3/4″ score line up to the 5 1/4″ score line. I slid the card base so the opposite long edge was lined up at the 1 1/4″ mark on my trimmer and again cut from the 1 3/4″ score line up to the 5 1/4″ score line. I folded the card like an accordion having the cut portion popping out. I stamped the butterflies from the Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Brilliance Cling Stamp (coming March 2nd) in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I cut the butterflies out using the Brilliant Wings Dies (coming March 2nd). I colored the butterflies in using my Bermuda Bay, Mint Macaron, Misty Moonlight and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers.

Above is a top view of how the card base should look.

I adhered a panel of the new Butterfly Bijou 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper (coming March 2nd) to the front of the card base using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered a panel of the Natural Touch Specialty Paper (coming March 2nd) to the pop out portion overlapping the front DSP panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Butterfly Wishes stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink and cut the panel out using the 2nd largest square from the Stitched Shapes Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the card front panel using Stampin’ Seal and adhered a butterfly to it using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered 4 small panels of Butterfly Bijou DSP to the card base using Multipurpose Liquid glue.

I adhered a panel of the Butterfly Bijou DSP to the inside of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered a panel of the Natural Touch Specialty Paper to the pop out panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I stamped the sentiment from the Butterfly Wishes stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock and adhered it to the pop out panel using Stampin’ Seal. I cut a small butterfly from another panel of Butterfly Bijou DSP using my Paper Snips and adhered it to the sentiment using Glue Dots. I adhered a panel of Natural Touch Specialty Designer Paper to the front of a small Basic White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I cut a panel of Basic White cardstock using the Hippo & Friends Dies. I stamped the sentiment from the Butterfly Wishes stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink in the center of the die cut panel and adhered it to the 2nd card front using Stampin’ Seal.

On the inside of the small card base I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Punch Party Photopolymer Sale-a-bration Host Stamp Set in Misty Moonlight Ink in the center. I colored the flowers and leaves in on the sentiment using my Magenta Madness and Just Jade Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a butterfly to the inside using Glue Dots. I adhered the small card base to the back of the larger card base using Stampin’ Seal. I added a few 2020-2022 In-Color Enamel Dots to the card fronts.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped one of the butterflies from the Butterfly Brilliance stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and colored it in using my Bermuda Bay, Mint Macaron and Misty Moonlight Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of Butterfly Bijou to the envelope flap.

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

You can also view the video on my YouTube channel Here. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! A Good Man Masculine

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers. How has everyone’s week started off? Ours has started with a HUGE snow storm. I’ve learned not to believe weather forecasts until they happen, I guess they were right this time. I went into work yesterday, even though the store was closed, to get my bills done and caught up on my work. The walk in was bad, but the walk home was horrible. I couldn’t see the snow was coming down so hard and nothing was plowed or shoveled. That was the best workout I’ve ever gotten just walking to and from work. The snow was at my knees at 1pm yesterday when I walked home and it’s still coming down this morning. This makes up for not having any snow last year. I’ll be heading back into work this morning to finish everything up since I had to leave early yesterday.

I have a masculine card for you today. I always seem to struggle with masculine cards, but every once in a while something will pop in my head and I run with it. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! A Good Man Cling Stamp Set for today’s card.

I started by adhering a panel of the Neutrals 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Thick Basic White card base using Stampin’ Seal.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the image from A Good Man stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink and colored it in using my Ivory and Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image out using the oval from the Stitched Shapes Dies. I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Seal.

On the Basic White panel I stamped the sentiment from A Good Man stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink and cut it out using my Tasteful Labels Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I cut the smallest circle from the Layering Circles Dies from a scrap of Crushed Curry cardstock and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I stamped the bird image from the Stampin’ Up! By The Dock Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink and colored it in using my Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the bird out using my Dockside Dies and adhered it to the circle using a Stampin’ Dimensional.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from A Good Man stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I adhered a strip of Neutrals DSP to the bottom of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Night of Navy mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Thick Basic White card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the image from A Good Man stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and colored it in using my Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of Neutrals 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! Berry Blessings for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends and welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. I hope everyone is doing well today and staying healthy. If you are hopping over from Akiko, 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 awesome projects. Here is my card for today.

I used the Free Stampin’ Up! Berry Blessings Bundle from the Sale-A-Bration! Catalog. This bundle is free with a qualifying order of $100. You get the stamp set and a full pack of Berry Delightful Designer Series Paper. Our challenge this week was to use anything from the Sale-A-Bration! Catalog

I started by adhering a panel of the Berry Delightful Designer Series Paper to a Pacific Point card base using Stampin’ Seal. I cut a panel of Pacific Point cardstock using the Ornate Borders Dies on both sides. I adhered a panel of Berry Delightful DSP to the center of the die cut panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the matted panel to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I embossed a panel of Granny Apple Green cardstock using the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to a Pacific Point mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the matted panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the outline leaf image from the Stampin’ Up! Berry Blessings Photopolymer Stamp Set in Shaded Spruce Ink. I stamped the leaf fill image in Granny Apple Green Ink over the outlined image. I stamped the blueberry outline image from the Berry Blessings stamp set in Pacific Point Ink on the leaf and the fill image in Pacific Point Ink, stamped off once, over the outline image. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Sweet Strawberry Photopolymer Stamp Set in Pacific Point Ink above the blueberries. I cut the panel out using the Stitched Shapes Dies. I cut a scalloped square from a panel of Pacific Point cardstock using the Layering Squares Dies. I adhered the artwork to the scalloped square using Stampin’ Seal and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals on the top half and Glue Dots on the bottom half.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Berry Blessings stamp set in Pacific Point in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the outlined leaf image from the Berry Blessings stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the leaf fill image over the outlined image in Granny Apple Green Ink. I stamped the outline blueberry image from the Berry Blessings stamp set in Pacific Point Ink and the blueberry fill image in Pacific Point Ink, stamping off once, over the outlined image. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Granny Apple Green mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Pacific Point card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the leaf and blueberry images from the Berry Blessings stamp set on the envelope front the same as I did for the card front and inner liner. I adhered a panel of Berry Delightful 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.
