Stampin’ Up! Splendid Thoughts Thank You Sneak Peek

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend.

Today’s card is part 2 of yesterday’s card. This one is also out of my comfort zone, but I had fun making it and was happy how it turned out. This was another one we made last Saturday at our Creativity Now Event and I tweaked it a little from the way they made it. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Splendid Thoughts Bundle along with the Splendid Day Specialty Designer Series Paper, the Stampin’ Up! Go To Greetings Cling Stamp Set and the Stampin’ Up! Inspired Thoughts Cling Stamp Set for my card today.

I started by embossing a Basic White card front using the Painted Posies 3D Embossing Folder. I lightly brushed Soft Sea Foam Ink over the embossed panel using my Blending Brush. I adhered the card front to a Basic White Thick card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Soft Sea Foam cardstock, I blended some Soft Sea Foam Ink to the bottom corner of the panel using my Blending Brush. I stamped the solid eucalyptus leaf image from the Stampin’ Up! Splendid Thoughts Cling Stamp Set in VersaMark Ink. I sprinkled it with my White Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I adhered the panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I took the 4 negative die cut panels from yesterday’s card and adhered them to the Soft Sea Foam panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. Using my Splendid Stems Dies, I cut 3 pieces of Splendid Day DSP using the leaf die. I adhered the 3 die cut leaves inside 3 of the negative half-moon dies using Glue Dots.

On a panel of Calypso Coral cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Go To Greetings stamp set in Versamark Ink. I sprinkled it with my White Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I cut the sentiment using my Stylish Shapes Dies and adhered it to the 4th negative half-moon die using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Fine Sparkle Adhesive-Backed Gems to the card front.

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Inspired Thoughts stamp set in Calypso Coral Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the solid eucalyptus leaf image from the Splendid Thoughts stamp set around the panel in Soft Sea Foam Ink. I adhered the Basic Whtie panel to a Soft Sea Foam mat and then to the inside of the Basic White Thick card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the eucalyptus leaf image from the Splendid Thoughts stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink around the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the Splendid Day DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked the card and will give it a try. Some of the products that were used in today’s card will be available on Friday July 1st. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Splendid Thoughts Birthday Sneak Peek

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends and welcome to the weekend. Does anyone have any plans? I’ll be at work all day today, but they gave me off tomorrow so I can stay home with my fur baby. She still can’t stay alone since we have to keep her off the stairs.

Today’s card is another one that we made last Saturday night at our Creativity Now Event. Today and tomorrow’s cards actually go together, you’ll see why tomorrow. They are both outside of my comfort zone, but it’s ok to do that and try new things. I’m actually happy with how they turned out. I did tweak the cards a little from how they designed them. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Splendid Thoughts Bundle along with the Splendid Day Specialty Designer Series Paper and the Stampin’ Up! Go To Greetings Cling Stamp Set for my card today.

I started by randomly stamping the large leaf image from the Stampin’ Up! Splendid Thoughts Cling Stamp Set in Petal Pink Ink on a Petal Pink card front. I embossed the panel using the Fern 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the card front to a Petal Pink card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I cut 4 panels of the Splendid Day DSP using the 1/2 moon shape die from the Splendid Stems Dies. Using my Paper Snips, I distressed the edge of a panel of Basic White cardstock. I adhered the 4 die cut pieces to the Basic White panel unevenly leaving a space for the sentiment. I wrapped a piece of the Soft Sea Foam 3/8″ Seam Binding Ribbon around the panel and tied a knot. I adhered the panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Soft Sea Foam cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Splendid Thoughts stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I cut the sentiment out using my Stylish Shapes Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added an Open Leaf Trinket to the card front using a Glue Dot.

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Go To Greetings stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the large leaf image from the Splendid Thoughts stamp set around the panel in Petal Pink Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Petal Pink mat and then to the inside of the Petal Pink card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the leaf image from the Splendid Thoughts stamp set in Petal Pink Ink around the front of the envelope. I adhered a panel of the Splendid Day DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. The Bundle and DSP used for today’s card will be available starting Friday July 1st. If you don’t have a demonstrator and would like a copy of the Annual and Mini Catalog, please contact me and I’ll get one out to you right away. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Wonderful World Sneak Peek Fun Fold Video Tutorial

Good Friday morning my stamping friends welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Are you ready for the weekend? I hope you are making some fun plans. I have off from both jobs this weekend. I was originally scheduled for Saturday, but one of my cashiers asked if she could work since she needed next weekend off, and I requested Sunday off since it’s my son’s birthday and Father’s Day.

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. 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. I actually have 2 versions of the card to show you. Here are my cards for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Sale-a-bration Wonderful World Bundle (available July 1st) along with the Stampin’ Up! Go To Greetings Cling Stamp Set for my cards today.

I started by cutting the Rich Razzleberry card base front. I lined up the 8 1/2″ edge at the 3″ mark on my Paper Trimmer. I cut from the 3″ mark to the 3/4″ mark. I turned the paper so the 5 1/2″ side was lined up at the 3″ mark on my Paper Trimmer. I cut from the 4 3/4″ mark to the 2 1/2″ mark. Gently push the cut panel towards the inside of the card so that the bottom corner becomes the top corner.

I cut a panel of the Wonderful World DSP (Sale-a-bration item available July 1st). Line up the 5 3/8″ side at the 2 15/16″ mark on the Paper Trimmer and cut from top down to the 2 1/2″ mark. Turn paper so the 4 1/8″ side is lined up on the Paper Trimmer at the 2 15/16″ mark and cut from the 3″ mark down. Adhered the Wonderful World DSP to the front of the card base lining the cut edge up with the cut edge of the card base. You will have to trim the small corners with Paper Snips that fold down under the flipped portion of the card.

Using the largest square from the Stylish Shapes Dies, cut a panel of Mossy Meadow cardstock. Stamp the small leaf image from the Stampin’ Up! Wonderful World Cling Stamp Set (available July 1st from Sale-a-bration), in Mossy Meadow Ink multiple times on the Mossy Meadow panel. Adhere the die cut square to the flipped corner using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the rose image from the Wonderful World stamp set using the Marker to stamp technique. I colored the rose using my Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Write Marker and the stem using my Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Write Marker. Huff on the stamp a couple times and stamp on the Basic White panel. I cut the image using the 3rd largest circle from the Stylish Shapes Dies. I adhered the stamped image to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few 2021-2023 In-Color Opal Rounds to the card front.

For this card I stamped the flower image from the Wonderful World stamp set using my Orchid Oasis and Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Write Markers on a panel of Basic White cardstock and cut the image out using the largest square from the Stylish Shapes Dies.

I adhered a panel of Wonderful World DSP to the inside of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I stamped the sentiment from the Go To Greetings stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink on a Basic White panel. I huffed on the already inked stamped to reactivate the ink and stamped the image on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to the inside of the Rich Razzleberry card base making sure it is under the folded panel.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the flower image from the Wonderful World stamp set on the envelope front the same as I did for the card front.

I adhered a panel of the Wonderful World 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. I hope you will CASE this card and please feel free to post it in the comments of my Facebook page under my post. I’d love to see your take on the card. 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. If you watch this on my YouTube channel, please remember to subscribe so that you will get notified when a new video goes live. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Sending Smiles Fun Fold Friday Video Tutorial

Good Friday morning my stamping friends welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Are you ready for the long Memorial Day weekend? I hope you are making some fun plans. We’re planning a small picnic for Monday afternoon.

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. 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 for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Sending Smiles Bundle along with the Stampin’ Up! Charming Sentiment Photopolymer Stamp Set, the Vellum Layering Designs and Design A Daydream Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I cut a panel of Design A Daydream DSP using the largest square from the Stylish Shapes Dies. I adhered the panel to a Petal Pink mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to a Vellum Layering Designs card front using Stampin’ Seal.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the 2 stem images from the Stampin’ Up! Sending Smiles Photopolymer Stamp Set in Mint Macaron Ink. I stamped 3 of the flower images from Sending Smiles stamp set in Fresh Freesia and Petal Pink Inks and the flower centers in Daffodil Delight Ink. I cut the stem and flower images using my Sending Dies. I cut the detailed sentiment from the Sending Dies from a panel of Design A Daydream DSP. I cut the bubble die from a panel of Mint Macaron cardstock. I adhered the detailed sentiment to the bubble sentiment using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered the 2 stems to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the flowers on top of the stems using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the sentiment across the bottom of the stems using Stampin’ Dimensionals. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Sending Smiles stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink. I cut the sentiment out using the Sending Dies and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few 2021-2023 In-Color Opal Rounds to the card front.

Fo the inside, I scored a panel of Mint Macaron cardstock at 2 1/8″, 4 1/4′ & 6 3/8″. I centered the 4th largest Deckled Rectangle Die on the panel and cut it out. The center score line is a mountain fold, and the 2 side score lines are valley folds. I adhered 2 panels of Design A Daydream DSP to either side of the Mint Macaron panel. On the Basic White Thick card base, I stamped the sentiment from the Charming Sentiments stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink in the center of the panel. I stamped the 2 stem images from the Sending Smiles stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink on the bottom of the panel below the sentiment. I stamped the flower images from the Sending Smiles stamp set on the stems in Fresh Freesia and Petal Pink Inks and the flower centers in Daffodil Delight Ink. I then scored and folded the Basic White Thick card base. I adhered the Mint Macaron panel to the inside of the Basic White Thick card base using Stampin’ Seal +. I added a couple Brushed Brass Butterflies to the inside of the card.

Here is a photo of how the card will look from the top.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the flower and stem image from the Sending Smiles stamp set in Mint Macaron, Petal Pink and Fresh Freesia Inks. I adhered a panel of Design A Daydream 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. I hope you will CASE this card and please feel free to post it in the comments of my Facebook page under my post. I’d love to see your take on the card. 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! Paradise Palms for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. I hope everyone is doing well today. If you are hopping over from Akiko Sudano’s blog, thank you for stopping by. This week we have a Theme Challenge. Here is my card using this week’s Theme.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Paradise Palms Bundle along with the New Horizons 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my card today.

Our theme this week is to Create a Scene!

I started by adhering a panel of New Horizon DSP to a Pale Papaya card base.

From a panel of Basic Black cardstock, I cut out 2 of the palm tree dies using the Palms Dies. From another panel of Basic Black cardstock I cut out 3 of the grass dies using the Palms Dies. I adhered the grass die-cut pieces to the bottom of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and Glue Dots where they overlapped. I adhered the 2 palm tree die-cuts to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Basic Black cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Paradise Palms Cling Stamp Set in VersaMark Ink. I sprinkled it with my White Embossing Powder from the Basics Embossing Powders and set it using my Heat Tool. I cut the sentiment out using the Stylish Shapes Dies. I adhered a small piece of Pale Papaya 3/8″ Open Weve Ribbon to the card front with Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the sentiment over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few 2021-2023 In-Color Opal Rounds to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Paradise Palms stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the palm tree images from the Paradise Palms stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the side of the panel. I adhered a strip of the New Horizons DSP to the top of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Basic Black mat and then to the inside of the Pale Papaya card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the palm tree image from the Paradise Palms stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of New Horizons DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Let’s Set Sail Father’s Day

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend. It was beautiful here, especially yesterday. I believe it was 78 and sunny most of the day. Now we’re back to rain and 50. Is anyone else watching the clock like I am? Less than 24 hours till the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog goes live, YAY!!!! I can’t wait. I’ve got my list all ready to go starting with my must haves right away, then my I want it now’s, followed by I’ll get it next week if I can wait that long and finally I want them, but I can wait a bit. I will be hitting that expedite button so I have my new goodies in a day or 2 so that I can get all the DSP cut up and shipped out to you ASAP.

Today’s card is one that we will be making at my monthly class tomorrow night. I thought I’d start the night off, and today’s post, with all the new 2022-2024 In-Colors. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Let’s Set Sail Bundle along with the Stampin’ Up! Gentle Waves Cling Stamp Set and the Stampin’ Up! Happy & Heartfelt Cling Stamp Set for my card today.

I started by embossing a panel of Basic White card front using the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder. On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the water image from the Gentle Waves stamp set first in Tahitian Tide Ink. I moved the panel up a little and stamped it again in Starry Sky Ink. I adhered the stamped panel to the embossed panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sailboat image from the Let’s Set Sail stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink. I colored the masts in Parakeet Party using my 2022-2024 In- Colors Stampin’ Write Markers. I stamped the sails images from the Let’s Set Sail stamp set in Orchid Oasis and Sweet Sorbet Inks. Using my Sailboat Builder Punch, I cut all the images out. Before punching them, I cut them apart using my Paper Snips to make it a little easier to punch. I adhered the sailboats to the stamped panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I stamped the shadow image from the Let’s Set Sail stamp set in Starry Sky Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper, below the boat image.

I adhered the Sweet Sorbet sails using Glue Dots and the Orchid Oasis sails using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I stamped the bird image from the Let’s Set Sail stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink on the top of the panel. On a small panel of Basic Whtie cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Let’s Set Sail stamp set in Starry Sky Ink. I cut the sentiment out using my Stylish Shapes Dies. I wrapped a piece of Starry Sky Baker’s Twine from the 2022-2024 In-Color Baker’s Twine Pack around the panel twice tying a knot on the back. I adhered the sentiment using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the card front to a Basic White Thick card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a Parakeet Party 2022-2024 matte Decorative Dots to the sentiment.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Happy & Heartfelt stamp set in Starry Sky Ink on a Basic Whtie panel. On the bottom of the panel, I stamped the water image from the Gentle Waves stamp set in Tahitian Tide Ink. I stamped the sailboat images from the Let’s Set Sail stamp set in Sahara Sand and Sweet Sorbet Inks on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the shadow image from the Let’s Set Sail stamp set in Starry Sky Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper, below the boat. I stamped the birds’ image around the sentiment. I adhered the Basic White panel to the inside of the Basic White Thick card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the water image from the Gentle Waves stamp set on the envelope front in Tahitian Tide Ink. I stamped the sailboat image from the Let’s Set Sail stamp set in Orchid Oasis and Sahara Sand on the bottom of the envelope. I stamped the birds in Smoky Slated Ink. I adhered a panel of Sahara Sand 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! Flowering Tulips Fun Fold with Video Tutorial

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and it really is Good Friday. Welcome to my fun fold Friday. How are you all doing today? Are you ready for the weekend? I’m off this weekend, both places are closed on Easter Sunday, and I took off Saturday to prep for my Easter Sunday brunch. I’ll be in my kitchen most of the day today making Easter Egg bread. It’s been a tradition for years in my family, my mom used to make it then I took over. I’m hoping with any luck my daughter will someday take over from me. It’s an all-day thing, mixing, rising, mixing more ingredients in, rising, shaping, rising and finally baking. I believe it takes 5 hours of rising total. In the end it is well worth it. I have an antique cookbook that the recipe is from that I’ve had to modify a little.

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. 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 for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Flowering Tulips Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Flowering Fields Designer Series Paper and the Stampin’ Up! Celebrating You Cling Stamp Set for my card today.

I played along with Creative Creases Challenge Anything Goes with a Fun Fold.

I also played along with Cardz 4 Galz Challenge #170 Fun Folds.

Here is the template I promised from my video.

I started by scoring a panel of Rich Razzleberry cardstock in half both directions as in the photo above. I cut the top right quarter of the panel off and cut the top right and bottom left quarters on a diagonal.

I cut a panel of Flowering Fields DSP on a diagonal and adhered it to the card base. Be careful if you have a directional pattern, you want to cut it the correct way.

On a panel of Basic Whtie cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Celebrating You stamp set in Rich Razzleberry Ink. I stamped the medium tulip image from the Flowering Tulips stamp set in Fresh Freesia Ink and the stem & leaves in Soft Succulent Ink. I cut the sentiment and image our using the Stylish Shapes Dies (available May 3). I adhered the tulip to the top fold down panel of the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the sentiment to the square die cut using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I tied a small bow using the Fresh Freesia 3/8″ Open Weave Ribbon and adhered it to the stem using a Glue Dot. I added a few 2021-2023 In-Color Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Flowering Tulips stamp set in Rich Razzleberry Ink on a Basic White panel. I adhered a strip of the Flowering Fields DSP to the side of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Fresh Freesia mat and then to the inside of the Rich Razzleberry card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the medium tulip image from the Flowering Tulips stamp set in Fresh Freesia Ink on the envelope front. I stamped the stem and leaves in Soft Succulent Ink. I adhered a panel of the Flowering Fields 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. I hope you will CASE this card and please feel free to post it in the comments of my Facebook page under my post. I’d love to see your take on the card. 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

Stampin’ Up! Art Gallery for The Card Concepts Challenge

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. We’re halfway through the week already and on our way to the weekend. It’s supposed to be a beautiful spring day here in NJ. We’ll have to see what happens 😉

It’s time for another inspiration challenge for The Card Concepts. The inspiration photo is Vintage Style. Here is my card that was inspired from the challenge photo.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Art Gallery Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the 2022-2024 In-Color 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper (available May 3) and the Brushstroke Specialty Paper (available May 3) for my Clean and Layered card. I was inspired by the flowers on the pillow and the colors from the photo.

I hope you will take a moment to visit The Card Concepts and join us for our challenge #173.  How are you inspired by this photo?

I started by embossing a Soft Suede card front using the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered a panel of the new 2022-2024 In-Color DSP to the card front. I adhered the card front to a Soft Suede card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered a panel of the new Brushstroke Specialty Paper to a Soft Suede mat and then to the card front. On a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock, I stamped the stem image from the Art Gallery stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink. I stamped the solid flower image from the Art Gallery stamp set in Blushing Bride Ink on the stem. I stamped the detailed flower image from the Art Gallery stamp set in Sweet Sorbet Ink over the solid image. I cut the panel using the largest circle from the new Stylish Shapes Dies (available May 3) and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the panel of Very Vanilla cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Art Gallery stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink and cut it out using the Stylish Shapes Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I tied a double bow using the Very Vanilla Bakers Twine from the Baker’s Twine Essential Pack and adhered it to the stem using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Celebrating You Cling Stamp Set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on a Very Vanilla panel. I stamped the smaller flower image from the Art Gallery stamp set in Blushing Bride Ink above and below the sentiment. I tore the edges of the panel and sponged them with some Soft Suede Ink. I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Blushing Bride mat and then to the inside of the Soft Suede card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Very Vanilla Medium Envelope. I stamped the flower image from the Art Gallery stamp set on the envelope front the same as I did for the card front. I adhered a panel of the 2022-2024 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. Some of the products used for my card today won’t be available until May 3 from the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Cactus Cuties Hello

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends and welcome to the weekend. I hope you have some fun plans in store. I’m working all day today, which is fine since it’s supposed to rain again. I do have off tomorrow though YAY!!!

I was busy yesterday getting everything ready to send out the new 2022-2023 Annual Catalogs to my customers and lost track of time. I was focused on getting them to the post office and shipped out. With that being said, I have a quick card for you today using retiring items. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Cactus Cuties Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Bloom Where You’re Planted Designer Series Paper. Not only both of these items will be retiring, but 2 of the colors I used, Bumblebee and Cinnamon Cider, will be retiring too.

I started by adhering a panel of Bloom Where You’re Planted DSP to a Cinnamon Cider card base.

I cut a panel of Basic White cardstock using the new Stylish Shapes Dies (available May 3rd). I stamped the flowerpot image from the Cactus Cuties stamp set in Cinnamon Cider Ink on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the cactus image from the Cactus Cuties stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink on the flowerpot. I stamped the flower image from the Cactus Cuties stamp set in Bumblebee Ink on the cactus image. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Cinnamon Cider mat on an angel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Cactus Cuties stamp set in Cinnamon Cider Ink. I cut the sentiment out using the Stylish Shapes Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a couple 2020-2022 In-Color Square Gems to the sentiment and a Bumblebee Trinket to the artwork.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Cactus Cuties stamp set in Cinnamon Cider Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the flowerpot, cactus and flower images from the Cactus Cuties stamp set the same as I did for the card front on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Cinnamon Cider mat and then to the inside of the Cinnamon Cider card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the cactus, flower and flowerpot images from the Cactus Cuties stamp set them same as I did for the card on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of Bloom Where You’re Planted 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!!
