Stampin’ Up! Hello Ladybug

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends and welcome to the weekend. What is everyone doing this weekend? Other than working I don’t do much this time of year on the weekends. I like to hibernate because it’s so cold.

I played with a new bundle today, but this time with a punch not dies. This was one of the 1st sets that caught my eye and I just had to have it. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Hello Ladybug Bundle along with the Pattern Party Host Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by adhering a panel of the Pattern Party DSP to a Basic White Thick card base.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the leaf image from the Stampin’ Up! Hello Ladybug Stamp Set in Granny Apple Green Ink. I stamped the trio of flowers image from the Hello Ladybug stamp set in Gorgeous Grape Ink by the leaf and the little dot image in Daffodil Delight Ink by the flowers. Using my 2nd largest Stitched With Whimsy Dies, I added the stitching around the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Poppy Parade mat and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the ladybug body from the Hello Ladybug stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I stamped the wings image from the Hello Ladybug stamp set in Poppy Parade Ink on the Basic Whtie panel then stamped the spots on the wings in Tuxedo Black Ink. I punched the images out using my Ladybug Builder Punch. I adhered the wings to the body using Stampin’ Dimensionals and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Hello Ladybug stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I adhered the sentiment to a Poppy Parade mat and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I tied a small bow using the 1/4″ Black & White Gingham Ribbon and adhered it to the sentiment using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Hello Ladybug stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the flower trio image from the Hello Ladybug stamp set in Gorgeous Grape Ink above the sentiment and the dots in Daffodil Delight Ink. I stamped the ladybug image from the Hello Ladybug stamp set on the bottom of the panel stamping the Tuxedo Black part first and the Poppy Parade over the top. I adhered the Basic Whtie panel to a Poppy Parade mat and then to the inside of the Basic Whtie Thick card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the ladybug image from the Hello Ladybug stamp set on the envelope front. First, I stamped the Tuxedo Black part of the stamp then the Poppy Parade over the top. I stamped the sentiment from the Hello Ladybug stamp set by the ladybug. I adhered a panel of the Pattern Party 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! Nature’s Beauty CAS Easter Card

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend? It was beautiful here. Unfortunately I was inside both days working. Luckily it’s still light out when I get out of work so I was able to enjoy some of the beautiful sunshine.

I have a Clean and Simple card for you today using the Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Beauty Cling Stamp Set and the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips Photopolymer Stamp Set. Here’s my card for today.

My design is from the Fab Friday Challenge #209.

I also played along with The Paper Players Challenge #533.

I started by embossing a Basic White card front using the Stitched With Whimsy Dies. I adhered the card front to a Basic White card base using Stampin’ Seal.

On a small panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the bunny image from the Nature’s Beauty stamp set in Gray Granite Ink. I stamped the grass image from the Nature’s Beauty stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink, some in full strength and some stamped off. I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a thin strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Gray Granite Ink. I adhered the sentiment to a strip of Pear Pizzazz cardstock using a Glue Dot and adhered it to the artwork using Glue Dots.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Timeless Tulips in Gray Granite Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the bunny image from the Nature’s Beauty stamp set in Gray Granite Ink on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the grass image from the Nature’s Beauty stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink, some full strength and some stamped off. I used the Stitched With Whimsy Dies and embossed the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Pear Pizzazz mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Basic White card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the bunny and grass images from the Nature’s Garden stamp set on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the Neutrals 6 X 6 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! Hot Dog Bone-Jour

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers. We made it halfway through the week already and we’re on our way to the weekend. Hope you are all having a productive week.

I played with another new set from the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog for today’s card. We have a new neighbor moving onto our block and she just happens to have a dachshund. I’m also really hoping she likes crafting, specifically making cards. I used the Stampin’ Up! Hot Dog Photopolymer Stamp Set for my card. Here’s my card that I had so much fun creating.

My design is from Fab Friday Challenge #205.

I started by embossing a Cinnamon Cider card front using the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered a panel of the 2020-2022 In-Color 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to the card front using Stampin Seal.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sitting dachshund from the Hot Dog stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink and colored it in using my Cinnamon Cider and Just Jade Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the sentiment from the Hot Dog stamp set on the top of the panel in Cinnamon Cider Ink. I used the new Stitched With Whimsy Dies to get the stitching around the panel.

On a scrap piece of Basic White cardstock I stamped the small butterfly image from the Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Gala Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I stamped the butterfly fill image in Bumblebee Ink. I punched the butterfly out using the Butterfly Duet Punch and adhered it to the Basic White panel using a Glue Dot. I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the card front to a Cinnamon Cider card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I added a few 2020-2022 In-Color Enamel Dots to the card front.

I had just as much fun creating the inside as I did the outside. I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Well Said Cling Stamp Set towards the top of a Basic White panel. On the bottom I stamped the 2 dachshunds from the Hot Dog stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink and colored them in using my Cinnamon Cider Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the sentiment bubbles from the Hot Dog stamp set by each dog in Just Jade Ink. I used the Stitched With Whimsy Dies again to add the stitching around the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Just Jade mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Cinnamon Cider card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the sitting dachshund from the Hot Dog stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and colored it in using my Cinnamon Cider and Just Jade Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of the 2020 -2022 In-Color 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!!
