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.

Stampin’ Up! Friends Are Like Seashells Fun Fold

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 just about everything from the Stampin’ Up! Sea & Sand Suite for my card. I will explain everything the best I can, but it’s much easier if you watch the video. This card also used the most colors I’ve ever used on a card. To me, there are a lot of colors in the ocean.

I started by adhering a panel of Sea & Sand Designer Series Paper to a Seaside Spray card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I cut a panel of Pearlescent Specialty Paper using the largest die from the Seaside Shells Dies. I stamped all the coordinating shells from the Stampin’ Up! Friends Are Like Seashells Photopolymer Stamp Set in Blushing Bride, Highland Heather, Petal Pink, Seaside Spray and So Saffron Inks right on the die cut piece. I embossed the die cut piece using the Seashells 3D Embossing Folder then snipped the shells away from the seaweed using my Paper Snips.

Using the largest die from the Seaside Shells Dies again, I cut a panel of Soft Seafoam cardstock and embossed it using the Seashells 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the Soft Seafoam die cut/embossed panel to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the stamped shells, that I snipped, to the Soft Seafoam die cut panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink and cut the panel using the oval from the Stitched Shapes Dies. This part was a little different from my video. On my video I stamped the sentiment on a panel of the Pearlescent Specialty Paper, but the sentiment didn’t show up dark enough so I re- stamped it on Basic White. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Opal Rounds to the card front.

The inside is where the fun fold comes in. I took a piece of Sea & Sand DSP and folded it like an accordion. I adhered the front 2 1/4″ panel to the front inside of the card base using Tear & Tape. I added Tear & Tape to the back 2 1/4″ panel, folded the DSP into the accordion and folded the back of the card base on top of it.

It will look like the above photo from the top.

I took a panel of Sahara Sand cardstock and cut 3 squares from the Stitched Shapes Dies. I embossed them using the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder. Using the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set and scraps of cardstock I stamped the smallest shell in Pool Party Ink on Pool Party cardstock. I stamped the starfish in Cinnamon Cider Ink on Cinnamon Cider cardstock. I stamped one of the seaweed images in Pear Pizzazz Ink on Pear Pizzazz cardstock and the other seaweed image in Mint Macaron Ink on Mint Macaron cardstock. I stamped the sand dollar image in Sahara Sand Ink on Basic White cardstock. I cut all the images out using the Seaside Shells Dies. I adhered the dies to the squares the way I wanted using Glue Dots then adhered the squares to the folds on the DSP using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, only on half of the square. I stamped the sentiment from Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in the center of a Basic White panel in Sahara Sand Ink. Using the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set I stamped the sand image in Sahara Sand Ink on the bottom of the Basic White panel. I stamped one of the shells in Blushing Bride Ink and the other in Seaside Spray Ink on top of the sand. I adhered the Basic White panel to the back inside of the card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. Using the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set, I stamped the sand image in Sahara Sand across the bottom front of the envelope. I stamped the seaweed image in Pear Pizzazz Ink, one of the shells in Blushing Bride Ink, the other shell in Seaside Spray Ink and the starfish in Cinnamon Cider Ink. I adhered a panel of Sea & Sand 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! Back On Your Feet 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. 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 awesome projects. Here is my card for today.

I needed to make a card for a coworker that has suffered from a heart attach this past weekend. I immediately thought about the Stampin’ Up! Back On Your Feet Cling Stamp Set to go with our sketch. Here is our sketch for this weeks challenge.

I started by adhering a panel of Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper to a Pretty Peacock card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I cut another panel of Forever Greenery DSP using my Stitched Rectangle Dies and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Seal.

I stamped the turtle image from the Back On Your Feet stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I colored the image in using my Just Jade, Mint Macaron, Pretty Peacock and Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image using my Stitched Shapes Dies. I cut a scalloped square from a panel of Pretty Peacock cardstock using my Layering Squares Dies and adhered the artwork to it using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the matted artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Back On Your Feet stamp set on a panel of Basic White cardstock in Pretty Peacock Ink. I cut the sentiment out using my Hippo & Friends Dies and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Matte Black Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Back On Your Feet stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the sloth image from the Back On Your Feet stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the side of the panel and colored it in using my Crumb Cake, Ivory, Shaded Spruce and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Mint Macaron mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Pretty Peacock card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of Forever Greenery DSP to the envelope front and a panel to the envelope flap. I stamped the turtle image from the Back On Your Feet stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and colored it using my Just Jade, Mint Macaron, Pretty Peacock and Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends Markers.

Stampin’ Up! A Touch Of Ink Thanks

Good Saturday morning my fellow stampers. Is anyone doing anything this weekend? I’ll be working all day today and tomorrow.

For today’s card I used one of the FREE stamp sets available from Sale-A-Bration. The Stampin’ Up! A Touch Of Ink Photopolymer Stamp Set. There are lots of beautiful images and sentiments in this set. This set is available with a qualifying order of $100 or more. Here’s my card for today.

My upline Jaimie Babarczy is doing a challenge for our team this month. Each week she is giving us a sketch and color challenge. I used the colors, but switched the side of the sketch. This was a bit of a challenge for me since those that know me, know Crushed Curry is my least favorite color. Here’s this weeks challenge.

I started by adhering a panel of Playing With Patterns 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Night of Navy mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to a Night of Navy card base using Stampin’ Seal.

I stamped the outline floral image from A Touch Of Ink stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I cut the image out using my Stitched Shapes Dies. I colored the flower in using my Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers and my Crushed Curry Stampin’ Write Marker. I adhered the image to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped the butterfly image from A Touch Of Ink stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on a panel of Crushed Curry cardstock. I fussy cut the butterfly using my Paper Snips. I colored the butterflies body in and a part of the wing using my Night of Navy Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the butterfly to the card front, overlapping the stitched circle, using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment from A Touch Of Ink stamp set on a strip of Basic White cardstock in Night of Navy Ink and cut the sentiment out using my Tasteful Labels Dies. I colored a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels using my Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Marker and added them to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Thanks Photopolymer Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the butterfly image from A Touch Of Ink stamp set in Crushed Curry Ink, stamping off once, over the sentiment. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Crushed Curry 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 floral image from A Touch Of Ink stamp set on the envelope front in Night of Navy Ink. I colored the image in using my Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers and Crushed Curry Stampin’ Write Marker. I adhered a panel of 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!!

I was able to get my entire house undecorated yesterday except for my tree. My husband will be taking that down today, I can’t touch it since I’m allergic to it. I always hate undecorating and having to pack everything away. The good part is, I’ll be bringing out all my snowmen and winter decorations soon, once I give the house a good cleaning.

For today’s card the owner of where I get my hair done asked me to make her a few Valentine’s cards. She wants one for each of her grandchildren and one for her husband. Here’s the 1st one I made for her granddaughter.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Special Someone Photopolymer Stamp Set for my card.

I started by embossing a panel of Magenta Madness using the Lace 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered a panel of Flowers For Every Season 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to the panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I wrapped a piece of Magenta Madness 1/4″ 2020-2022 In-Color Ribbon around the panel and tied a bow. I adhered the card front to a Magenta Madness card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the outline raccoon image from the Special Someone stamp set in Early Espresso Ink. I stamped the fill image in Sahara Sand Ink over the outline image. I stamped a couple of the butterflies from the Special Someone stamp set in Early Espresso Ink by the raccoon and colored them in using my Bumblebee Stampin’ Write Marker. I cut the racoon out using the Stitched Shapes Dies. On the same panel I stamped the heart balloon outline image from the Special Someone stamp set in Poppy Parade Ink. I stamped the heart balloon fill image over the outline image in Poppy Parade Ink, stamping off once. I stamped the string image in Early Espresso Ink. I cut the balloon and string out using the Special Day Dies. Using the Layering Ovals Dies I cut the scalloped oval from a panel of Poppy Parade cardstock. I adhered the raccoon image to the scalloped oval using Stampin’ Seal and adhered it to the card front over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the balloon to the string using a Glue Dot and adhered it to the raccoon using a Glue Dot. I had cut a tiny bow from a scrap of Poppy Parade using the Special Day Dies and adhered it to the string by the raccoons paws using a Glue Dot.

On a strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Special Someone stamp set in Magenta Madness Ink. I cut the sentiment out using the Tasteful Labels Dies and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Family Party Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Stampin’ Up! A Wish For Everything Cling Stamp Set in Magenta Madness Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the outline balloon image from the Special Someone stamp set in Poppy Parade Ink in 2 of the corners. I stamped the balloon fill image over the outline image in Poppy Parade Ink, stamped off once. I stamped a couple of the butterfly images from the Special Someone stamp set in Early Espresso Ink by the sentiment. I colored the butterflies in using my Bumblebee Stampin’ Write Marker. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Poppy Parade mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Magenta Madness card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the outline raccoon image from the Special Someone stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the envelope front. I stamped the raccoon fill image over the outline image in Sahara Sand Ink. I adhered a panel of the Flowers For Every Season 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! Sweet Strawberry Sneak Peek

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers. How has everyone’s week started off? I’m working again today, but I do have off tomorrow. Is anyone starting to make any plans for New Year’s Eve? We’ll be staying home.

I have another sneak peek for you today from the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog. Here’s my card for today.

I used the new Stampin’ Up! Sweet Strawberry Photopolymer Stamp Set for my card along with the Berry Delight Designer Series Paper that is bunded with another stamp set in the Sale-A-Bration catalog.

I started by embossing a Garden Green card front using the new Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered a panel of the Berry Delight DSP to a Blackberry Bliss mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the matted DSP to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I wrapped a piece of Blackberry Bliss 3/8″ Striped Ribbon around the panel and tied a bow.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Sweet Strawberry stamp set in Blackberry Bliss Ink. I stamped the outline of the flowers from the Sweet Strawberry stamp set in Blackberry Bliss Ink above and below the sentiment. I stamped the flower fill images in Blackberry Bliss Ink, stamped off twice, over the outline image. I stamped the outline leaf image from the Sweet Strawberry stamp set in Garden Green Ink by the flowers. I stamped the leaf fill image from the Sweet Strawberry stamp set in Garden Green Ink, stamped off once, over the outline image. I cut the stamped panel out using the Stitched Shapes Dies. I adhered it to a scallop square mat, which I cut from a panel of Blackberry Bliss cardstock using my Layering Squares Dies, using Stampin’ Seal.

I adhered the square to the card front over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the card front to a Blackberry Bliss card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Pastel Pearls to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Sweet Strawberry stamp set in Blackberry Bliss Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel. I stamped the outline flower images from the Sweet Strawberry stamp set in Blackberry Bliss Ink on the panel corners. I stamped the fill images in Blackberry Bliss Ink, some stamped off once and some twice. I stamped the leaf outline image from the Sweet Strawberry stamp set around the flowers in Garden Green Ink. I stamped the leaf fill image in Garden Green Ink, stamping off once, over the outlined image. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Garden Green mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Blackberry Bliss card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the flower and leaf images from the Sweet Strawberry stamp set on the envelope front the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of the Berry Delight DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today, I hope you liked my card. Items I used for my card today will be available January 5, 2021 from the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog. Happy Stamping!!

WHISPER WHITE CARDSTOCK PRODUCTS- AVAILABLE WHILE SUPPLIES LAST

Stampin’ Up! announced this information related to the Whisper White paper products late last evening:

Whisper White has been a Stampin’ Up! staple for so long. We love it and we know you love it, too. We are sad to announce that the supplier’s mill producing our Whisper White cardstock has permanently closed due to impacts from the COVID-19 pandemic. Unfortunately, we weren’t given much notice on this closure. This means that the technology unique to this particular supplier is now unavailable to us and we can no longer offer our Whisper White cardstock and related products, such as Whisper White Note Cards & Envelopes. Please note that this won’t affect any of our other cardstocks, this only affects Whisper White.

We know Whisper White has a huge fan base; we’re big fans, too! And we are crushed that it’s going away. Even though this decision was out of our hands, rest assured that we jumped right into action to find the best replacement paper possible. We have dedicated many hours to source and test alternative cardstock options from several suppliers to find the perfect fit that still maintains the Stampin’ Up! quality you know and trust. We are happy to share that we have found a winner for our new cardstock, Basic White!

The quality of our new Basic White was thoroughly tested by our quality assurance and product teams. It also tested very well with demonstrators and concept artists who gave it a huge thumbs up. We believe in the quality of the new Basic White cardstock and we know it will become your new crafting staple!

What does this mean for you?

With Whisper White going out of production, this means a number of Whisper White products will be affected. Below is a list of all products that will be replaced with our new Basic White cardstock. These items are now available while supplies last with an order limit of 2 per item per order.

  • Whisper White 12″ x 12″ (30.5 x 30.5 cm) Cardstock (124302)
  • Assorted Memories & More Cards & Envelopes (149710)
  • Whisper White Note Cards & Envelopes (131527)
  • Whisper White 3″ x 3″ (7.6 x 7.6 cm) Envelopes (145829)
  • Whisper White 8-1/2″ x 11″ Cardstock (100730)
  • Whisper White 8-1/2″ x 11″ Thick Cardstock (140272)
  • Whisper White Medium Envelopes (107301)

Our new Basic White products will become available to purchase as soon as we have them in stock. This means that some Whisper White and Basic White products may be available at the same time. Additionally, due to the nature of sourcing, some Basic White products may not be available before the Whisper White products sell out. Please know that we are working on getting these products available to you as fast as possible.

Stampin’ Up! Posted For You for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends and welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. How is everyone doing today? It’s very cold here. We got quite a bit of snow yesterday and it’s continuing into today. Perfect day for me to be baking. If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we have a color challenge. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s awesome projects.
Here are our colors for this week

Here’s my card using these colors.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Posted For You Cling Stamp Set for my card today. My design is from Try Stamping on Tuesday Challenge #486. Here is their sketch.

I started by embossing a panel of Pool Party cardstock using the Scripty 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to a Pool Party card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped the floral image from the Posted For You stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock. I colored the image in using my Old Olive and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the round sentiment from the Posted For You stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the same panel of Whisper White cardstock. I cut the images out using the Stitched Shapes Dies. Using the Layering Circles Die, I cut 2 circles from a panel of Flowers For Every Season 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper. I cut 4 scalloped circles from a panel of Early Espresso cardstock matching the sizes of the circles, using the Layering Circles Dies. I adhered the circles to the scalloped circles using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped the sentiment from the Posted For You stamp set in Versamark Ink on a strip of Misty Moonlight cardstock. I immediately sprinkled it with my White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I adhered the panel of Misty Moonlight cardstock to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered a small piece of 1/4″ Old Olive Ribbon from the Ornate Garden Ribbon Combo Pack using a small amount of Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the 2 stamped circles to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the 2 DSP circles to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Moments Cling Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel. I stamped the floral image from the Posted For You stamp set in Pool Party Ink, stamping off once, over the sentiment. I adhered the Whisper White panel to an Early Espresso mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Pool Party card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the floral image from the Posted For You stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the front of the envelope. I colored the image in using my Old Olive and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of Flowers For Every Season 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! Darling Donkey Sneak Peek

Good Sunday morning my fellow stampers. How is everyone’s weekend going? I have to work again today, but at least I don’t go in until noon.

I have a sneak peek for you today of a Sale-A-Bration item that will be available January 5, 2021. I used the adorable Stampin’ Up! Darling Donkey Cling Stamp Set. Here is my card for today.

My design is from the Fab Friday Challenge #203. Here is their sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of the 2019-2021 In-Color 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Terracotta Tile card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I embossed a panel of Pretty Peacock cardstock using the new Painted Texture 3 D Embossing Folder (available January 5, 2021). On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the donkey image from the Darling Donkey stamp set in Early Espresso Ink. I colored the image in using my Cajun Craze, Crumb Cake, Granny Apple Green, Ivory and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the star image around the donkey in Pretty Peacock Ink and cut the image out using the Stitched Shapes Dies. On a strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiments from the Darling Donkey stamp set in Early Espresso Ink.

I adhered the circle to the embossed panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered a piece of the Terracotta Tile 1/2″ Scalloped Linen Ribbon to the bottom of the artwork using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the sentiment over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Birthday Cling Stamp Set in the center of a Whisper White panel in Early Espresso Ink. I stamped the stars on either side of the sentiment in Pretty Peacock Ink. I adhered a strip of the 2019-2021 In-Color DSP to the bottom of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I stamped another one of the donkey images from the Darling Donkey stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the bottom of the panel and colored it in using my Crumb Cake, Ivory and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pretty Peacock mat using Stampin’ Seal 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 donkey image from the Darling Donkey stamp set on the envelope front in Early Espresso Ink. I colored the image in using my Cajun Craze, Crumb Cake, Granny Apple Green, Ivory and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of 2019-2021 In-Color DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. The Embossing Folder I used will be available for purchase starting January 5, 2021. The Darling Donkey stamp set will be a free Sale-A-Bration item with a qualifying order of $50. If you would like a copy of the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog, drop me a line at creativestampingdesigns@gamil.com and I will gladly get one in the mail to you. Enjoy the rest of your weekend. Happy Stamping!!

WHISPER WHITE CARDSTOCK PRODUCTS- AVAILABLE WHILE SUPPLIES LAST

Stampin’ Up! announced this information related to the Whisper White paper products late last evening:

Whisper White has been a Stampin’ Up! staple for so long. We love it and we know you love it, too. We are sad to announce that the supplier’s mill producing our Whisper White cardstock has permanently closed due to impacts from the COVID-19 pandemic. Unfortunately, we weren’t given much notice on this closure. This means that the technology unique to this particular supplier is now unavailable to us and we can no longer offer our Whisper White cardstock and related products, such as Whisper White Note Cards & Envelopes. Please note that this won’t affect any of our other cardstocks, this only affects Whisper White.

We know Whisper White has a huge fan base; we’re big fans, too! And we are crushed that it’s going away. Even though this decision was out of our hands, rest assured that we jumped right into action to find the best replacement paper possible. We have dedicated many hours to source and test alternative cardstock options from several suppliers to find the perfect fit that still maintains the Stampin’ Up! quality you know and trust. We are happy to share that we have found a winner for our new cardstock, Basic White!

The quality of our new Basic White was thoroughly tested by our quality assurance and product teams. It also tested very well with demonstrators and concept artists who gave it a huge thumbs up. We believe in the quality of the new Basic White cardstock and we know it will become your new crafting staple!

What does this mean for you?

With Whisper White going out of production, this means a number of Whisper White products will be affected. Below is a list of all products that will be replaced with our new Basic White cardstock. These items are now available while supplies last with an order limit of 2 per item per order.

  • Whisper White 12″ x 12″ (30.5 x 30.5 cm) Cardstock (124302)
  • Assorted Memories & More Cards & Envelopes (149710)
  • Whisper White Note Cards & Envelopes (131527)
  • Whisper White 3″ x 3″ (7.6 x 7.6 cm) Envelopes (145829)
  • Whisper White 8-1/2″ x 11″ Cardstock (100730)
  • Whisper White 8-1/2″ x 11″ Thick Cardstock (140272)
  • Whisper White Medium Envelopes (107301)

Our new Basic White products will become available to purchase as soon as we have them in stock. This means that some Whisper White and Basic White products may be available at the same time. Additionally, due to the nature of sourcing, some Basic White products may not be available before the Whisper White products sell out. Please know that we are working on getting these products available to you as fast as possible.

Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals CAS

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers. Here we are halfway through the week already. These days are going too quick for me. Is everyone getting your shopping done? Holiday cards mailed? Decorations up? Starting to plan Christmas dinner? I guess 1 out of 4 isn’t bad for me. I’ve got half my decorations up so far and that’s it. I’m hoping to get the rest done today. I’m also focusing on getting my cards out by this weekend, see how that goes.

For today’s card I used the Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals Photopolymer Stamp Set, but I didn’t make a poinsettia this time. Here’s my card.

My colors are from Global Design Project Challenge # 269. Here are their colors.

My design is from CAS(E) This Sketch # 399. Here is their sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of Poinsettia Place Designer Series Paper to a Real Red card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered a smaller panel of Poinsettia Place DSP to a Real Red mat using Stampin’ Seal.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Just Jade Ink. I stamped the pine bough image from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Garden Green Ink above the sentiment. I colored the pine cones in using my Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the sentiment out using my Stitched Shapes Dies. I adhered the artwork to a Real Red mat using Stampin’ Seal.

I adhered a piece of Just Jade 1/4″ 2020-2022 In-Color Ribbon to the card front with Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the matted artwork over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few of the clear Wonderful Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Just Jade Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel. I stamped the boughs image from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Garden Green Ink on the top of the panel and colored the pine cones in using my Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Garden Green mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Real Red card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I adhered a strip of the Poinsettia Place 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 card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Joyful Holly CAS

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers. How is everyone’s week going? We’re halfway through already. Is everyone ready for Thanksgiving tomorrow? I’ll be making all my pies and pumpkin cheese cake tonight. We’re having a very small gathering tomorrow, just my family and my son’s girlfriend. Hopefully next year our gatherings can be back to normal.

For today’s card I kept it pretty clean and simple. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Joyful Holly Photopolymer Stamp Set for my card.

My design is from Sunday Stamps Challenge #244. Here is their sketch.

I started by embossing a Garden Green card front using the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the panel to a Garden Green card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the holly image from the Joyful Holly stamp set in Garden Green Ink twice. I stamped the holly fill image from the Joyful Holly stamp set in Garden Green Ink, stamping off once. I stamped the berry fill image from the Joyful Holly stamp set in Real Red Ink. I cut the image out using my Stitched Rectangle Dies and embossed it using my Wrapped In Texture Embossing Folder. On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Joyful Holly stamp set in Garden Green Ink and cut the sentiment out using my Stitched Shapes Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the artwork using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut a panel of ‘Tis The Season Designer Series Paper using my Stitched Rectangle Dies, 2 sizes larger than the artwork. I adhered the artwork to the DSP using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and then to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Joyful Holly stamp set in Garden Green Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel. I stamped the holly images from the Joyful Holly stamp set on two of the corners in Garden Green Ink. I stamped the holly fill image from the Joyful Holly stamp set in Garden Green Ink, stamping off once. I stamped the berry fill image from the Joyful Holly stamp set in Real Red Ink. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Real Red mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Garden Green card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the holly image from the Joyful Holly stamp set on the envelope front in Garden Green Ink. I stamped the holly fill image from the Joyful Holly stamp set in Garden Green Ink, stamping off once. I stamped the berry fill image from the Joyful Holly stamp set in Real Red Ink. I adhered a panel of ‘Tis The Season 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!!
