Stampin’ Up! Lovely You Valentine

Happy February my fellow stampers. How was everyone’s weekend? Did anyone do anything fun? Plans changed for me very quickly yesterday morning. I was only supposed to go into work for a couple hours in the office to close out the month, I ended up there all day. One of my cashiers got her 2nd Covid shot and had a reaction, so that left us short handed. I got my main work done, then I was out running a register for the remainder of the day because it was so busy. We’re getting hit with a snow storm and suddenly no one has shovels or salt. Yesterday was my husbands birthday so those plans changed too. My daughter did still baked him a yummy chocolate cake with 7 minute frosting though.

I have a really quick and easy Valentine card for you today. Take a look.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Lovely You Cling Stamp Set for my card along with the gorgeous Love You Always Specialty Designer Series Paper.

I started by adhering a panel of the Love You Always Specialty DSP to a Sahara Sand mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the matted panel to a Blushing Bride card base using Stampin’ Seal.

I stamped the sentiment from the Lovely You stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the small flower image from the Lovely You stamp set in Blushing Bride Ink in the corners of the panel. I cut a panel of Love You Always Foil Sheet using the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. I adhered the artwork to the foil mat using Stampin’ Seal.

I adhered a piece of the Blushing Bride 3/8″ Metallic Ribbon to the card front using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the matted sentiment over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the sentiment panel.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Heart To Heart Photopolymer Stamp Set in Sahara Sand Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the small flower image from the Lovely You stamp set in Blushing Bride Ink on either side of the sentiment. I adhered a strip of the Love You Always Specialty DSP to the bottom of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Sahara Sand mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Blushing Bride card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the small flower image from the Lovely You stamp set in Blushing Bride Ink in the corners of the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the Love You Always Specialty DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you like my QAE card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Quite Curvy Hello

Good Saturday morning my fellow stampers. How is everyone’s long weekend going? I have to go into work for a bit today. Since the store was closed yesterday I have to go in today to get all my bills out. Hopefully everything will go nice and smooth and I’ll be out shortly after noon.

For today’s card I used the Stampin’ Up! Quite Curvy Bundle which is in the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog along with some gorgeous DSP that will be available in the Sale-A-Bration Catalog starting on Tuesday January 5th. Here’s my card for today.

My design was inspired from the Global Design Project #272.

I played along with Just Us Girl’s Challenge #565. They have a Word Week.

I started by adhering a panel of the Oh So Ombre 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper (Sale-A-Bration item available Jan. 5th) to a Rococo Rose card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the leaf image from the Stampin’ Up! Quite Curvy Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image in using my Just Jade Stampin’ Blends Markers and cut the image using one of the border dies from the Curvy Dies. On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment and 2 birds from the Quite Curvy stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the birds in using my Balmy Blue and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers and cut them out using the Curvy Dies. I cut the sentiment out using the smallest Stitched So Sweetly Dies, I also cut the next size larger die from a panel of Just Jade cardstock.

I adhered the curved border to the left side of the card front using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the sentiment to the Just Jade mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the birds 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 Quite Curvy stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel. I stamped the leaf image and the bird images from the Quite Curvy stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom of the panel. I colored the images in using my Balmy Blue, Just Jade and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Rococo Rose mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Rococo Rose card base using Multipurpose Liquid glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the leaf and bird images from the Quite Curvy stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom front of the envelope and colored the images in using my Balmy Blue, Just Jade and Petal Pink 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! So Sentimental for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning and Merry Christmas Eve my stamping friends, welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. Is everyone ready for the big day? I’m as ready as I’m going to be this year. 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 our sketch for this week.

Here’s my card using the sketch.

I used the Stampin’ Up! So Sentimental Bundle for my card today.

I started by coloring a panel of the new True Love Designer Series Paper (coming in the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog) using my Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the panel using my Stitched Rectangle Dies.

I adhered a panel of the True Love DSP to a Cherry Cobbler card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the stitched rectangle panel to the top of the card front using Stampin’ Seal.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! So Sentimental Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and cut it out using my Stitched So Sweetly Dies. I adhered a piece of 1/4″ Old Olive Ribbon from the Ornate Garden Ribbon Combo Pack with Glue Dots. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Cherry Cobbler Rhinestones from the Holiday Rhinestones Basic Jewels.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Onate Thanks Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel. I stamped the flower from the Stampin’ Up! Painted Poppies Cling Stamp Set on the bottom of the panel and colored them in using my Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a strip of the True Love DSP to the bottom of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Basic Black mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Cherry Cobbler card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I adhered a panel of the colored True Love DSP to the envelope front and the envelope flap.

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) – SOLD OUT
  • Assorted Memories & More Cards & Envelopes (149710)
  • Whisper White Note Cards & Envelopes (131527) – SOLD OUT
  • 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) – SOLD OUT
  • Whisper White Medium Envelopes (107301) – SOLD OUT

Stop by the online store to get the following Whisper White products that you love before they’re gone forever!  The Thick Whisper White card stock, Whisper White 12″ x 12″ Cardstock, Medium Envelopes and Note Cards & Envelopes have already sold out!

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! Flowering Cactus Celebrate Sneak Peek

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers. How was everyone’s weekend? Did you get all your shopping done and everything wrapped? I finished my baking, I’ll be putting trays together tonight. I think I’ve picked up everything I have to gift wise, now I just have to wrap. I’ve got Christmas dinner all planned out. I’m as ready as I’m going to be.

For today’s card I played with a Product Medley from the upcoming January-June 2021 Mini Catalog. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Flowering Cactus Product Medley for my card today. I’m really loving this medley. It’s such a fun group of products.

I started by cutting a panel of the Flowering Cactus Designer Series Paper in to 3 strips and adhered them using Multipurpose Liquid Glue to a panel of Highland Heather cardstock. I adhered the artwork to a Highland Heather mat using Stampin’ Seal.

I wrapped a piece of the Calypso Coral Twine around the panel and tied a small bow. I adhered a panel of Flowering Cactus DSP to a Highland Heather card base using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Many Mates Cling Stamp Set in Mossy Meadow Ink. I cut the sentiment out using my Stitched So Sweetly Dies and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Artistry Blooms Adhesive-Backed Sequins to the sentiment and card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Flowering Cactus Photopolymer Stamp Set in Mossy Meadow Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel. I stamped the cactus image from the Flowering Cactus stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink, stamping off once, on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Highland Heather mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Highland Heather card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the cactus image from the Flowering Cactus stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the Flowering Cactus DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today, I hope you liked my card. This Product Medley will be available January 5, 2021. It’s such a great group of products, you might just want to grab it for your card making. Happy Stamping!!

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.

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!

Stampin’ Up! Art Gallery Birthday Sneak Peek

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers. How was everyone’s weekend? I finally had time to sit down with write out all my Christmas cards. I was doing it at 1am, but I got them done. Who needs sleep this time of year anyway?

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

I used the new Stampin’ Up! Art Gallery Photopolymer Stamp Set and the new Fine Art Floral Designer Series Paper.

I started by adhering a panel of the new Fine Art Floral DSP to a Merry Merlot card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I embossed a panel of Merry Merlot cardstock using the new Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder.

I adhered a panel of Fine Art Floral DSP to the embossed panel on an angle using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the embossed panel to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered a piece of Fine Art 3/8″ Ribbon to the angled DSP using a little Stampin’ Seal.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the 2-step flower image from the Art Gallery stamp set in Bumblebee Ink. I stamped the detailed image full strength and the fill image stamped off once. I stamped the sentiment from the Art Gallery stamp set in Merry Merlot Ink over the flower image then cut the image out using my Stitched So Sweetly Dies. I cut the larger die from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies from a panel of Bumblebee cardstock. I adhered the stamped image to the top of the Bumblebee die using Stampin’ Seal and then to the card front over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Gilded Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Bloom & Grow Photopolymer Stamp Set in Merry Merlot Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel. I stamped the 2-step flower image from the Art Gallery stamp set in Bumblebee Ink. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Bumblebee mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Merry Merlot card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I adhered a strip of Fine Art Floral 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. Products from today’s card will be available starting January 5, 2021 from the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Zany Zebras Birthday

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone’s weekend going? I’m heading into work again today. I was hoping to have the day off, but they put me on the schedule. It’s a short day at the dog bakery though, I don’t go in until noon and I’m done by 5pm.

For today’s card a co-worker asked me to make her nieces daughter a 1st birthday card. It took me a bit to come up with something, since I thought I didn’t have anything appropriate for a 1 year old. Then I remembered and here’s what I came up with.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Zany Zebras Cling Stamp Set for my card along with a sneak peek inside of a new set coming in the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog.

I started by cutting a panel of Whisper White cardstock using the largest Stitched Triangle Dies. I stamped the adorable little zebra image from the Zany Zebras stamp set in Magenta Madness Ink on the bottom of the triangle. I added a little color to her stripes, mane and tail using my Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends Markers. I then embossed the triangle using the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder. From that same panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the zebra image again in Magenta Madness Ink and I stamped the sentiment from the Zany Zebras stamp set in Magenta Madness Ink. I used some washi tape to cover the happy part of the sentiment so I would just get the birthday. I cut the sentiment out using the smallest die from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies and I fussy cut the zebra using my Paper Snips, not cutting the mane or the tail. I added some color to her stripes using my Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I adhered the fussy cut zebra on top of the stamped zebra on the triangle using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the triangle to a Whisper White card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I cut all the letters and the #1 from a panel of Rainbow Glimmer Paper, which I adhered to a Foam Adhesive Sheet, using the Playful Alphabets Dies.

I cut 3 of the small balloons out using the Happy Dies one in Granny Apple Green, one in Highland Heather and one in Mango Melody. I embossed the Granny Apple Green and Highland Heather balloons using the Wrapped In Texture Embossing Folder. I cut the 3 strings and 3 bows from a panel of Magenta Madness cardstock using the Happy Dies. I adhered the strings to the back of the balloons using Glue Dots and the bows to the bottom of the balloons using a tiny amount of Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the balloons to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the #1 to the Mango Melody balloon. I adhered the letters to the card front the way I wanted them and adhered the die cut birthday under the happy using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added some Artistry Blooms Adhesive-Backed Sequins to the card front. I adhered the card front to a Granny Apple Green mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to a Magenta Madness card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped a sentiment from a new set coming in the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog, the Stampin’ Up! Many Messages Cling Stamp Set. This is 1 large stamp with 19 sentiments on it. I used my Stamparatus to get just the one sentiment centered on a panel of Whisper White Cardstock. I used my Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Write Marker to ink up just the sentiment I wanted to use. I stamped the zebra image from the Zany Zebras stamp set to the side of the sentiment in Magenta Madness Ink and I stamped the party hat from the Zany Zebras stamp set in Magenta Madness Ink on the opposite side. I added color to the strips on the zebra and the pom-pom on the hat using my Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends Markers. I colored the dots on the hat in using my Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Write Marker. I stamped the grass image from the Zany Zebras stamp set under the zebra in Granny Apple Green Ink. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Granny Apple Green 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 Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the zebra image from the Zany Zebras stamp set in Magenta Madness Ink on the envelope front. I stamped the grass image from the Zany Zebras stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink below the zebra. I added some color to the zebras stripes, mane and tail using my Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of Artistry Blooms 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! Garden Wishes Sneak Peek for my Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? I hope you all had a productive one. Does anyone have plans for the weekend? I’ll be working all day tomorrow. It’s been a rainy few days here but of course it’s suppose to be sunny tomorrow.

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. You won’t be able to make the exact card unless you were able to purchase these set already. Both stamp sets and the DSP will be available in the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog. Here’s the card that I made.

I used the new Stampin’ Up! Garden Wishes Cling Stamp Set and the Stampin’ Up! Dragonfly Garden Cling Stamp Set to make my card today.

I started by lightly adhering a panel of the Dandy Garden 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Bumblebee card base using a tiny amount of Stampin’ Seal just on 2 of the corners to hold it in place. I cut the center out using the 2nd largest die from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. I set the pieces to the side and adhered the Dandy Garden DSP to the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I tied a piece of the Misty Moonlight 2020-2022 In-Color 1/4″ Ribbon around the card front and tied a bow. I added a Glue Dot under the bow to hold it in place.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the dandelion image from the Garden Wishes stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. I stamped the flower center image from the Garden Wishes stamp set in Bumblebee Ink, stamping off once, in the center of the dandelion. I colored the stem and leave in using my Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image out using the 3rd largest die from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. I adhered the artwork to the Bumblebee mat (which I cut out from the card base earlier), using Stampin’ Seal.

I adhered a panel of Dandy Garden DSP to the inner card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue then adhered the matted artwork to it using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a couple of the Ladybug Trinkets to the artwork using Glue Dots.

On the inside Z-Fold card I stamped the wild flower image from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the sentiment from the Garden Wishes stamp set in the center of the Whisper White panel I stamped the dragonfly image from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set in Bumblebee Ink on the top and bottom corners of the panel, masking it with a Post-It note so that I didn’t get ink on the side panel. I colored the flowers in using my Calypso Coral and Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the inner card base to a Misty Moonlight mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Bumblebee card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the dandelion image from the Garden Wishes stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front. I stamped the flower center image from the Garden Wishes stamp set in bumblebee Ink, stamping off once, in the center of the dandelion. I colored the leaves and stem in using my Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the dragonfly image from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set in Bumblebee Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the Dandy Garden 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. The stamp sets and DSP for my project today will be available in the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog on January 5, 2021. If you are one of my customers and have placed an order this past year, I will be sending you a catalog as soon as they are available.

Stampin’ Up! Vertical Curvy Christmas

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone’s week going? We’re halfway through which means the weekend is right around the corner, YAY!!! I’m very excited for this weekend. We have our OnStage @ Home event. We were supposed to go to Salt Lake City this year, but under the circumstances we will all be watching and participating from home. I’m really looking forward to seeing what coming.

For today I have a pretty clean and simple card for you using the Stampin’ Up! Curvy Celebrations Collection. After I was all finished with it, I realized I had made a simple fun fold. So you’re getting 2 this week from me. Here’s my card for today.

I joined in with the CAS On Friday Challenge #192. Their theme is ‘Christmas’.

I started by adhering a panel of Classic Christmas 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Mossy Meadow card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. Using the flourished curvy die from the Curvy Dies, I cut the card front about a 1/3 of the way in. I did have to run this through my Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine multiple times since I was going through cardstock and DSP.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Curvy Christmas Photopolymer Stamp Set in Mossy Meadow Ink on a Whisper White panel. I cut the sentiment out using my Stitched So Sweetly Dies. I adhered a piece of the Mossy Meadow 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim (available January5, 2021) to the card front in a zig-zag pattern using a little Stampin’ Seal to hold it in place. I adhered the sentiment over the trim using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a couple Cherry Cobbler Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the sentiment.

On a Whisper White panel, which is the inner liner, I stamped the pine boughs image from the Curvy Christmas stamp set on the right edge following the curve of the card front in Mossy Meadow Ink. On a scrap of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the bird image from the Stampin’ Up! Quite Curvy Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. I colored the bird in using my Cherry Cobbler and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Joyful Holly Photopolymer Stamp Set in the center of the Whisper White panel in Mossy Meadow Ink. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Mossy Meadow card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the bird between the pine boughs using a Stampin’ Dimensional. I added a couple Cherry Cobbler Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the pine boughs.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the pine bough image from the Curvy Christmas stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink on the bottom of the envelope front twice. I stamped the 2 different birds from the Quite Curvy stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the pine boughs facing each other. I colored the birds in using my Cherry Cobbler and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of the Classic Christmas 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! 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.

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!!
