Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals Double Z-Fold for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? We’re upon another weekend, is anyone making plans? I’ll be at work all weekend.

Today’s card I made Wednesday on my Facebook Live Video. If you were able to join me live or you watched the replay, thank you very much.  If you’d like to view my video either on Facebook or YouTube, the links are below. Here’s my card for today.

I started by scoring and folding the large and small card bases at 4 1/4″ & 2 1/8″. I adhered a panel of Poinsettia Place Designer Series Paper to the large card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered a panel of the Poinsettia Place DSP to the inside back and the inside front (you can not see it in this photo) of the large card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered a panel of the Poinsettia Place DSP to the small card base front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the small card base to the large card base using Tear & Tape.

I cut the 4 flower dies from the Poinsettia Dies from a panel of Real Red Cardstock. I brushed all the petals using my Clear Wink of Stella. I cut the large flower die from the Poinsettia Dies from a panel of Old Olive Cardstock and snipped all the leaves apart using my Paper Snips. I adhered the leaves under the flower using Glue Dots then adhered the flower to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added one of the Beaded Pearls to the center of the flower using a Glue Dot. On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals Photopolymer Stamp Set in Old Olive Ink. I cut the sentiment out using the Stitched So Sweetly Dies and adhered it to the card front, just under the flower, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I added a few branches I cut from a panel of Silver Foil using my Poinsettia Dies and adhered them under the flower using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Christmas Cling Stamp Set on the Whisper White panel and cut it out using the 2nd largest frame die from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Real Red mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the back of the small card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the poinsettia image from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Real Red Ink on the envelope front. I masked the image and stamped the flower leaves from the medium flower image from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Old Olive Ink. I colored the image in using my Old Olive and Real Red Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I adhered a panel of Poinsettia Place 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 supplies are below along with the measurements if you’d like to stamp along while watching the video.  You can watch it on my Facebook page Here.

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

Stampin’ Up! Well Said Wedding

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends.  How is everyone doing today?  We’re halfway through the week already and on our way to the weekend.

TODAY ONLY!!!

Stock up on stamp sets at a stellar price! For one day only, you can purchase select cling and photopolymer stamp sets at a 15% discount. This short, stamp-tacular sale only happens once a year—you won’t want to miss out on these super savings!

My boss is getting married this weekend and I was volunteered to collect from all of our part timers for a gift for him and his future wife.  All I said is that I would put together a card for them, I’m always getting volunteered for something.  Here is the wedding card I made for them.  Now I need to come up with one more design for a card from my family and I.

I started by cutting the outline of the floral die from the Many Layered Blossoms Dies out of a pane of Whisper White cardstock which was adhered to an Adhesive Sheet.  I cut the 2nd die cut from the Many Layered Blossoms Dies from a panel of Shimmery White cardstock.  I cut a panel of Soft Seafoam cardstock into pieces and cut just the leaves out of the 2 dies from the Many Layered Blossoms Dies to fill in on the white pieces.  I cut the small flower outlines from the Many Layered Blossoms Dies out of a panel of Shimmery White cardstock and the small  2nd die cut of the small flowers from a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock, which was adhered to an Adhesive Foam Sheet.

I adhered the Shimmer White die to the front of a Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the Soft Seafoam leaves using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the Whisper White outline die to the top of the Shimmery White flower with the Adhesive Sheet.  I adhered the small outlined flowers to the Very Vanilla flowers and then to the card front with the Adhesive Foam Sheet attached.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Well Said Cling Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using the smallest die from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies and edged it using my Soft Seafoam Stampin’ Write Marker.  I adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I cut the ‘bride  groom’ out of a panel of Champagne Foil Sheet using the Well Written Dies and adhered them to the card front, over the flowers, using my Fine Tip Glue Pen.  I added a few of the clear Elegant Faceted Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Well Said stamp set in Soft Suede Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I didn’t decorate the inside like I normally do since so many people have to sign the card.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Champagne Foil mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped one of the leaf images from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern Cling Stamp Set in Soft Seafoam Ink, stamping off once, on the envelope front.  I stamped the splatter image from the Forever Fern stamp set in Soft Seafoam Ink around the leaf image.  I adhered a panel of Peony Garden Designer Series Paper 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! Happy Day Sunflower for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday.  How was everyone’s week?  Have you made plans for the weekend yet?

I have a Double Z-Fold card for you today using one of my favorite sets from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.  Here’s my card for today.

My inspiration is from Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge #346.  Here is their inspiration board.

I started by  a panel of Flowers For Every Season 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to the front panel of the card base using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered another panel of Flowers for Every Season DSP on the front section of the small Z-Fold card using Stampin’ Seal.

I adhered a panel of Flowers for Every Season DSP on the back panel of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the small Z-Fold card base to the large Z-Fold card base using Tear & Tape.  The longer section of the small Z-Fold is adhered to the front panel of the large card base and the small section is adhered to the back section.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Birthdays Cling Stamp Set in Just Jade Ink on the Whisper White panel.  I cut the sentiment out using the Stitched So Sweetly Dies and adhered it to the front panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the large sunflower from the Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers Cling Stamp Set in Cinnamon Cider Ink.  I stamped 3 of the larger leaves from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Just Jade Ink on the Whisper White panel.  I colored the sunflower in using my Water Painter, filled with alcohol, and Bumblebee Ink on a clear block.  I colored the sunflower center in using my Cinnamon Cider Stampin’ Blends Markers and I colored the leaves in using my Just Jade Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the flower and leaves out using the coordinating dies from the Sunflower Dies.  I adhered the sunflower to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals, hanging off the left side a little.  I trimmed the sunflower using my Paper Snips.  I cut the leaf vein from the Sunflower Dies out of a panel of Just Jade cardstock and adhered them to the solid leaves using tiny amounts of Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the leaves under the sunflower using Glue Dots.  I added a few Bumblebee 2020-2022 In-Color Enamel Dots to the card front.

On the inside I adhered a Just Jade panel of cardstock to the back section of the small Z-Fold card using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I stamped the sentiment from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set on the Whisper White panel in Just Jade Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using my Stitched So Sweetly Dies and adhered it to the Just Jade panel using Stampin’ Seal.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the small sunflower from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Cinnamon Cider Ink on the envelope front.  I colored the image in using my Water Painter with the Bumblebee Ink and my Cinnamon Cider and Just Jade Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of 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! Warm and Toasty Cheer for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday.  How was everyone’s week?  Does anyone have anything fun planned for the weekend?  My craft area got a little bit of a makeover yesterday.  I ordered new shelves and they got delivered on Wednesday.  I couldn’t wait to put them together and reorganize my area.  I usually do a reorganization on New Year’s, but it got done a little early this year.  It’s so nice, neat and more spread out that I can find things a little easier.

For today’s card I made an easel card.  I’m not sure if I’ve done this before, but it was a lot of fun.  The easel part was really easy.  Have you ever gone through stamping images and coloring them in and you go to look for the dies and there aren’t any?  I really thought this stamp set came with dies, guess I was thinking of another one.   I had everything stamped, colored and ready and I had to pull out my Paper Snips to fussy cut everything.  Now, if I lived closer to my upline Jaimie, I would have run over to her and asked her to cut them out for me since she is an expert at it.  Here’s my card for today.

My colors are from Sunday Stamps Going Cool Challenge #237.  Here are their colors.

I started by adhering the Highland Heather easel part of the card to a Purple Posey card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered 2 panels of the Snowflake Splendor Designer Series Paper to the base easel section and the outside easel section using Stampin’ Seal.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock, I stamped the skating polar bear, singing bunnies and the small polar bear images from the Stampin’ Up! Warm & Toasty Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I stamped the sentiment from the Warm & Toasty stamp set in Pacific Point Ink on the same panel.  I cut the sentiment out using the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.  I colored the images in using my Balmy Blue, Highland Heather, Pacific Point & Purple Posy Stampin’ Write Markers.  I colored the sleigh in using my Balmy Blue Stampin’ Blends Marker.  I fussy cut all the images using my Paper Snips.  I cut the smallest snowflake from the So Many Snowflakes Dies out of a panel of Balmy Blue Glimmer Paper.  Using my Layering Ovals Dies I cut a panel of a Silver Foil Sheet.

I adhered the Silver Foil oval to the base of the easel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the skating polar bear on the foil using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few of the Balmy Blue Glimmer snowflakes to the panel.

On the front panel of the easel I adhered the sentiment to the center using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the singing bunnies to the top of the panel and the small polar bear to the bottom of the panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added 2 Balmy Blue Glimmer snowflakes to either side of the sentiment.  I added a few of the Adhesive Backed Snowflakes to the card front and sentiment.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Warm & Toasty stamp set in the center of a Whisper White panel in Pacific Point Ink.  I stamped the snowflake image from the Warm & Toasty stamp set around the sentiment, stamping off twice, in Pacific Point Ink.  I stamped the small polar bear from the Warm & Toasty stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the bottom of the panel.  I adhered a thin strip of the Balmy Blue Glimmer paper to the side of the panel using Stampin’ Seal and trimmed it using my Paper Snips.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Highland Heather mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Purple Posy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the skating polar bear image from the Warm & Toasty stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the front of the envelope and colored it in using my Balmy Blue & Pacific Point Stampin’ Write Markers.  I stamped the snowflake image from the Warm & Toasty stamp set in Pacific Point Ink, stamping off twice, around the bear.  I adhered a panel of Snowflake Splendor 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! So Sentimental Thanks

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends.  How is everyone’s weekend going?  It’s going to be a hot one here, so I will definitely be staying in.  At 8am the real feel outside was already 86 and they are saying we are suppose to be breaking record highs today.  They are saying triple digits.  Perfect crafting day in my books.

For today I have a quick and easy card for you that requires very little stamping.  Here’s my card for today.

My colors are from Just Add Ink Challenge #514.  Here are their colors.

I started by adhering a panel of In Good Taste Designer Series Paper to a Pretty Peacock mat using Stampin’ Seal.  This DSP is so realistic looking I have to touch it every time thinking it is raised.  My favorite from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog for sure.  I adhered the card front to a Smoky Slate card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! So Sentimental Cling Stamp Set in Pretty Peacock Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.  From a panel of Pretty Peacock cardstock I cut the larger Stitched So Sweetly Die and adhered the die cut sentiment to it using Stampin’ Seal.

I adhere a piece of the 3/8″ Pool Party Sheer Ribbon to the card front using Glue Dots.  I adhered the matted sentiment over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I colored a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels using my Dark Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Marker and adhered them to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Thanks Photopolymer Stamp Set in Pretty Peacock Ink in the center of a Whisper White Panel.  I stamped the small confetti image from the So Sentimental stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink, stamping off once each time, on either side of the sentiment and in the corners.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pretty Peacock mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Smoky Slate card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the larger confetti image from the So Sentimental stamp set multiple times across the bottom of the envelope front in Pretty Peacock Ink.  I adhered a panel of In Good Taste DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for visiting my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try.  I hope you all enjoy the rest of your weekend with whatever you do and try to stay cool.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Seaside View Hello for 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?  With any luck, by the time you are reading this, I’ll be at the Jersey Shore for the day.  If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we had a Sketch Challenge. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects .
Here is the sketch we had to work from.

Here’s my card using this sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of In Good Taste Designer Series Paper to a Pool Party card base using Stampin’ Seal.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the palm tree and Adirondack chair images from the Stampin’ Up! Seaside View Cling Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink.  I stamped the sand image from the Stampin’ Up! High Tide Photopolymer Stamp Set in Sahara Sand Ink multiple times on the bottom of the panel.  I stamped the grass image from the High Tide stamp set in Just Jade Ink around the palm tree.  I colored the sky using my Balmy Blue and Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the birds from the Seaside View stamp set in Soft Suede Ink.  I colored all the images in using my Cinnamon Cider, Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Just Jade, Misty Moonlight and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I adhered the artwork to a Pool Party mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips Photopolymer Stamp Set in Just Jade Ink on a small panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I cut the image out using the smallest die from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies and adhered it to the artwork using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Seaside View stamp set in Just Jade Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the palm tree and bird images from the Seaside View stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the bottom of the panel and either side of the sentiment.  I colored the images in using my Crumb Cake, Just Jade and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pool Party mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Pool Party card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the palm tree and bird images from the Seaside View stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the envelope front.  I colored the images in using my Crumb Cake, Just Jade and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of In Good Taste DSP to the envelope flap.

For today’s card I used the beautiful Stampin’ Up! Prized Peony Cling Stamp Set.  Here is my card for today.

My design is from Fab Friday Challenge #193.  Here is their sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of Peony Garden Designer Series Paper to a Petal Pink mat using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered it to a Basic Gray card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered a panel of Peony Garden DSP to a panel of Petal Pink cardstock which I cut using the 2nd largest die from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.  I cut the left side of the matted panel even with the DSP panel.  I adhered a piece of a Square Vellum Doilie to the bottom of the artwork using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Prized Peony stamp set in Gray Granite Ink.  I stamped the small peony image from the Prized Peony stamp set in Petal Pink Ink on the end of the strip.  I cut the strip into a banner using my Banner Triple Punch and adhered it to the artwork using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I added a few Elegant Faceted Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Prized Peony stamp set in Gray Granite Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the small peony image from the Prized Peony stamp set in Petal Pink Ink on the bottom of the panel.  I adhered a strip of Peony Garden DSP to the left side of the panel using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Petal Pink mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Basic Gray card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin’ Up! Anniversary Rose for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday and a holiday weekend.  Hopefully most of you have today off for a nice long weekend and have some fun plans ahead.  I don’t normally work on Friday’s, so I’m off today and tomorrow.  This is one of the few holidays that our store is closed, and it’s been like this for 60+ years YAY!!

So, did you ever have one of those days you had all planned out and nothing went as planned.  That was yesterday for me.  I made a To Do List as soon as I got up at 5am (yes I’m an early bird).  I knew everything I had to get done and I knew I had plenty of time to get it all done.  Then vertigo hit followed by a panic attack.  I’ve never had an episode before so I didn’t know what was happening.  Long story short, I only got 1 thing done on my list and was not happy. Guess today’s another day to try.

For today’s fun fold I tried another one I’ve never done before.  I can’t remember what it’s called, so I’m calling it a flip card.  Here’s my card for today.

My colors, once again, were inspired by some roses I have.  I ordered plants a couple years ago and they sent me a free St. Patrick’s Day rose bush.  It looked dead when I got it, but I planted it anyway.  I had no clue what color, I thought it would be orange or green.  Here’s what I got.

This was the 1st rose of the season.

I went out yesterday to these 2 beauties.

I was amazed how the same plant could have 2 different color roses on it, 1st to the 2nd 2.

I started by cutting out the front of a Pear Pizzazz card base using the 2nd largest square from the Layering Squares Dies and set the square to the side.  I randomly stamped the outline leaf image from the Stampin’ Up! To A Wild Rose Photopolymer Stamp Set in Pear Pizzazz Ink around on the card front.

I stamped the rose image from To a Wild Rose stamp set in Daffodil Delight Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I colored the image in using my Daffodil Delight, Mango Melody and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the image out using my Wild Rose Dies.  I cut the 3rd largest square from the Layering Squares Dies out of the panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped it multiple times with the outline leaf image from the To a Wild Rose stamp set.  I colored the leaves in using my Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the 3rd largest scallop square out of a panel of Gray Granite cardstock using my Layering Squares Dies.

On the panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Many Mates Cling Stamp Set in Gray Granite Ink and cut the sentiment out using my Stitched So Sweetly Dies.  I adhered the sentiment to the bottom of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the Gray Granite scallop square to the Pear Pizzazz square I cut out from the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the stamped Whisper White panel on top of the Gray Granite square using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered the die cut rose to the Whisper White  square using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a couple Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front and 1 to the rose.

For the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern Cling Stamp Set in Gray Granite Ink on a Thick Whisper White panel.  I used Thick Whisper White because I knew this was the part that would be opened and closed and get a lot of wear.  I stamped the outlined leaf image from the To a Wild Rose stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink, some full strength and some stamped off.  I stamped the rose image from the To a Wild Rose stamp set in Daffodil Delight Ink, stamping off once, over the sentiment.  I adhered a Gray Granite panel to the inside of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I scored the Thick Whisper White panel at 2″ & 4″ and adhered it to the top left of the Gray Granite panel using Tear & Tape just on the right 2″ X 4 1/4″ part.  I accordion folded the Whisper White panel and closed the card front on top of it.  I adhered the artwork to the Whisper White panel through the square on the card front, fitting it back in where it came out of.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the outlined rose image from the To a Wild Rose stamp set in Daffodil Delight Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped the outlined leaf image from the To a Wild Rose stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink around the rose and on the envelope flap, some full strength and some stamped off.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. I hope you all have a very safe and fun 4th of July.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Hip Hip Hooray

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends.  How has everyone’s weekend started off?  Does anyone have plans for Father’s Day tomorrow?  My daughter and I are making my husband a big brunch. My niece, her husband and boys are coming over to join us.  We started doing this a couple years ago and he loves it.

If any of you saw my post on Thursday for our blog hop, you saw that I had an oops.  I used the wrong color.  I had made another card to use, but I was told it was ok the colors were close enough.  Here’s the other card I made using the right colors.  My older little nephew graduated from his elementary school and moved to the intermediate school, so I wanted to make him a card too.  He’s 9, so it’s a little harder since he’s too old for cutesy things, but not old enough for grown up things yet.

I played along with Watercooler Wednesday Challenge #276.  Here is their theme.

I started by cutting a panel of Just Jade and Pretty Peacock cardstock using the Best Plaid Builder Dies.  I adhered the Pretty Peacock panel first onto a Pear Pizzazz card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered the Just Jade cut panel on top of the Pretty Peacock panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I wrapped a piece of the Just Jade 1/4″ Ribbon around the panel tied a knot and adhered the card front to a Pear Pizzazz card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut a panel of Whisper White cardstock using the 2nd largest die from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.  I stamped the 2 sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Best Year Cling Stamp Set in Just Jade Ink  on the cut panel.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and added a few Just Jade 2020-2022 In-Color Enamel Dots to the sentiment.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! So Sentimental Cling Stamp Set in Just Jade Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  When you cut the cardstock using the Best Plaid Builder Dies you are left with a lot of squares.  I decorated the inside of the card using these squares adhering them down with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pretty Peacock mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Pear Pizzazz card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I adhered a strip of the Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper 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! Flowering Blooms

Good Saturday morning my fellow stampers.  How has everyone’s weekend started off?  I was able to tackle another one of my gardens yesterday that needed a lot of TLC.  This one wraps around my house and is lined with these large boulders.  I was doing great at the beginning, but after 4 hours of lifting them and raking the dirt, I was exhausted.  My daughter was helping me and was doing great until she dropped one on her foot.  These boulders have to be at least 20-30lbs each, which moving 1 or 2 isn’t bad, but after moving around 40 we were done.  It does look much nicer now, so it was well worth the pain.

For today’s card I played with another new bundle I purchased from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.  Here’s my card for today.

My colors were inspired by  Color Throwdown Challenge #597.  Here are their colors.

My sketch is from CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge #374.  Here is their sketch.

I started by stamping the large flower image from the Stampin’ Up! Flowering Blooms Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a Whisper White panel.  I colored the image in using my Granny Apple Green and Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the image out using my Flowering Dies.

I cut another panel of Whisper White cardstock using the 2nd largest scalloped rectangle from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies and embossed it using the Dainty Diamonds 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the flower to the embossed panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  On the Thick Whisper White card base I stamped the Bokeh Dots image from the Stampin’ Up! Beauty Abounds Cling Stamp Set in Balmy Blue Ink on the top and bottom of where I was putting the artwork.

I stamped the sentiment from the Flowering Blooms stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the bottom of the card front.  I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a Rich Razzleberry sequins from the Artistry Blooms Adhesive-Backed Sequins.  I tied a small bow using the 1/8″ Night of Navy Ribbon from the Playing With Patterns Ribbon Combo Pack and adhered it to the bottom of the flower using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Flowering Blooms stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the large flower image from the Flowering Blooms stamp set on the bottom of the panel in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored it in using my Granny Apple Green and Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Rich Razzleberry mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the flower image from the Flowering Blooms stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the bottom front of the envelope.  I colored the image in using my Granny Apple Green and Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the Bokeh Dots images from the Beauty Abounds stamp set in Balmy Blue and Rich Razzleberry Inks on 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!!
