Stampin’ Up Wishing You Well

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Did anyone do anything fun?  I don’t usually rush weeks, but the end of this week is OnStage.  I’ll get to see the new 2019-2020 Annual catalog and all the new goodies coming out.  Hopefully next Monday I’ll be able to share some things with you.

For today’s card I really went outside of my comfort zone.  It’s not straight, and I meant to do this, it’s just not my normal.  I used the Stampin’ Up Wishing You Well Stamp Set, which was carried over from the holiday catalog.  This set has the most realistic bow ever.  I think that is one of the reasons I bought it.  Here’s my card.

I also joined in with CAS Colours and Sketches #315.  Here are their colors for the week.

I started with a card front of the Brights 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper in Gorgeous Grape and adhered it to a Gorgeous Grape card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the bouquet from the Wishing You Well stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink.  I added the flowers to the bouquet in Gorgeous Grape Ink.  I cut the image out using my Big Shot and the Square Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.  I stamped the bow from the same stamp set in Grapefruit Grove Ink and fussy cut it using my Paper Snips.  I cut a scalloped square frame from the Layering Squares Framelits Dies out of Grapefruit Grove cardstock.  I did this by picking the scalloped square I wanted to use and took a solid square 2 sizes smaller and cut them out together with my Big Shot.  On a strip of Granny Apple Green cardstock I stamped the sentiment from Stampin’ Up Itty Bitty Greetings in Versamark Ink.  I sprinkled it with my Grapefruit Grove Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat set it using my Heat Tool.

It took me a while to arrange this to my liking, but once I got it I secured the frame in the corners using Glue Dots.  I adhered the artwork over the frame using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the bow to the bottom of the bouquet using a Mini Stampin’ Dimensional.  I adhered the sentiment to the bottom of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I added a few Grapefruit Grove Share What You Love Artisan Pearls to the artwork and the sentiment.

On the inside I stamped the bouquet from the Wishing You Well stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink, stamping off twice, in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the flowers in the bouquet in Gorgeous Grape Ink stamping off 3 times.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Strong and Beautiful Stamp Set in Gorgeous Grape Ink over the bouquet.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Grapefruit Grove mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Gorgeous Grape card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the bouquet from the Wishing You Well stamp set the same as I did for the card on the envelope front.  I adhered a piece of the Brights 6 X 6 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 Painted Seasons Double Time Technique

Good Saturday morning my fellow stampers. I don’t usually do posts on the weekends, but I wanted to show you one last Sale-A-Bration card.  Tomorrow is your last day to order any Sale-A-Bration items.

RUN DON’T WALK TO YOUR COMPUTERS TO PLACE YOUR ORDERS.

Today’s card I used the gorgeous Distinctive Stampin’ Up Painted Seasons Stamp Set and the Stampin’ Up Part Of My Story Stamp Set. I also tried the Double Time Technique for my card.  I am really going to miss this Distinctive set. Here’s my card.

The colors I used were part of The Color Throwdown Challenge #536.

I started by taking 2 panels of Very Vanilla cardstock and put the tiniest amount of Snail in the center to just hold them in place.  I stamped the sentiment from the Part Of My Story stamp set in Soft Suede Ink in the center of the top panel.  I stamped the flower image from the Painted Seasons stamp set randomly around on the cardstock in Blushing Bride Ink.  I stamped the fern image from the same stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink randomly between the flowers.  I stamped the leaf image from the same stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink stamping off once.

I adhered each of the Very Vanilla panels to a Blushing Bride mat using Snail.  I lined up the images and adhered the smaller matted panel to the larger matted panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I then adhered the artwork to a Pear Pizzazz card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the flowers, ferns and leaves from the Painted Seasons stamp set randomly on a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Strong And Beautiful Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink in the center of the Very Vanilla panel.  This stamp set has the most beautiful sentiments and font in it.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Blushing Bride mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Pear Pizzazz card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I stamped the flower, fern and leaf images from the Painted Seasons stamp set randomly on the envelope front and the envelope flap the same as I did for the card front.

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit my blog today.  I hope you liked my Double Time card and will give it a try.  Enjoy your weekend.  Happy Stamping!!
