Stampin’ Up! Cottage Wreaths for The Card Concepts

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. I hope everyone’s week is going well. We’re halfway through and on our way to the weekend. Can you believe it’s the last day of November already? I’ve lost the past 2 months, they have been a blur to me.

It’s time for an inspiration challenge from The Card Concepts. The inspiration photo #185 is Christmas Greetings.  Here is my card that was inspired from the challenge photo.

Stampin' Up! Cottage Wreaths 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Cottage Wreaths Bundle for my card today. I was inspired by the wreath on the door and the colors for my clean & layered card.

I hope you will take a moment to visit The Card Concepts and join us for our challenge #185.  How are you inspired by the photos?

Stampin' Up! Cottage Wreaths 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by adhering 4 smaller panels of Cherry Cobbler cardstock to a larger panel making it look like a door. I embossed the panel using the Timber 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the layered embossed panel to a Basic White Thick card base.

Stampin' Up! Cottage Wreaths 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the twig wreath image from the Stampin’ Up! Cottage Wreaths Photopolymer Stamp Set in Sahara Sand Ink. I stamped the small pine bough image from the Cottage Wreath stamp set all around the wreath in Evening Evergreen Ink. I stamped multiple pine bough images on the Basic White Panel. Using my Country Wreaths Dies, I cut out the wreath and all the pine bough images. I adhered the pine boughs to the wreath using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the wreath to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. From a panel of Real Red cardstock I cut the bow from the Country Wreaths Dies. I adhered the bow to the wreath using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Cottage Wreaths 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Cottage Wreaths stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink. I cut the sentiment out using the smallest die from the Stylish Shapes Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added Red Rhinestones Basic Jewels to the wreath and 1 Brushed Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dot as a doorknob.

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Very Best Occasions Cling Stamp Set in Evening Evergreen Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the bow image from the Cottage Wreaths stamp set in Real Red Ink on the top of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat then to the inside of the Basic White Thick card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the bow image from the Cottage Wreaths stamp set in Real Red Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of Painted Christmas Designer Series Paper to the envelope flap.

*********************************************************************************************************

In response to changing policies at Stampin’ Up – I’m adjusting my Ordering Gift policy as well.  I’m having to get a little more tough on the adding of Host codes when you place your order thru my Online Store.

Not to worry – you’re still going to get that $10 ordering gift for orders of $50 (before shipping & tax) or greater.  And the gift is still any 1 SU! product up to that $10 value – which includes some of our fun Host Sets!

But – if you DO NOT use the Host code for your orders of less than $150 (this is the RETAIL total before Shipping & Handling), then you’ll have two options:

  1. You’ll need to call Stampin’ Up! (1-800-Stamp-Up) and ask them to add it for you. They’re very helpful and will get it done quickly!  OR….
  2. If your order was over the $50 threshold but under $150, then…you’ll forfeit that $10 ordering gift and rewards – this is the Bummer Option – and I REALLY don’t want to do this, SO please remember to add my Current Host Code.

Stampin’ Up! In The Moment Thank You Card

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends and welcome to the weekend. Does anyone have any fun plans? I’ll be working all day today, but I do have off tomorrow. Thursday was my first day out working all day and I was exhausted through Friday. I’m hoping the same doesn’t happen again. I was told it might take at least a month before I feel more like myself. I’m really hoping it doesn’t take that long.

Today’s card has lots of layers. I love cards with layers, the only problem with them is it’s always more postage to mail them. I also wanted to play with the 2022-2024 In-colors. I haven’t used them in a while, and I thought it was time. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! In The Moments 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! In The Moment Cling Stamp Set the Stampin’ Up! Very Best Occasions Cling Stamp Set along with the 2022-2024 6 X 6 In-Color Designer Series Paper for my card today.

Stampin' Up! In The Moments 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the image from the In The Moment stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image using my Crumb Cake, Ivory, Parakeet Party, Soft Suede, Starry Sky and Sweet Sorbet Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image out using my Stylish Shapes Dies. I adhered the artwork to a Starry Sky mat. I adhered the layered panel to a Parakeet Party mat. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! In The Moments 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Very Best Occasions stamp set in Starry Sky Ink. I cut the sentiment out using my Stylish Shapes Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few 2022-2024 In-Color Matte Decorative Dots to the card front.

Stampin' Up! In The Moments 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Very Best Occasions stamp set in Starry Sky Ink on a panel of Basic White. I adhered a strip of the 2022-2024 In-Color DSP to the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Parakeet Party mat then to the inside of the Starry Sky card base.

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends. Welcome to Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop. It’s the 2nd Tuesday of the month so that means Blog Hop Day!! If you are starting with me, be sure to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects. If you’ve hopped over from Jaimie’s blog, welcome to my blog and thank you for stopping by. The theme this month is “Giving Thanks”. We can interpret this however we want.  Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Gathered Wheat 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Gathered Wheat Bundle for my card today.

Stampin' Up! Gathered Wheat 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by stamping the small wheat image from the Stampin’ Up! Gathered Wheat Cling Stamp Set in Sahara Sand Ink on a Very Vanilla card front. I cut the bottom of the panel using the Basic Borders Dies. I embossed the panel using the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered a panel of He’s The Man Designer Series Paper to the bottom front of a Very Vanilla Thick card base. I adhered the embossed panel to the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Gathered Wheat 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock, I stamped the large wheat image from the Gathered Wheat stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink. I cut the image our using the Wheat Dies. I wrapped a piece of Linen Thread around the wheat image and tied a knot. I adhered the wheat to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Gathered Wheat 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the panel of Very Vanilla cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Gathered Wheat stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink. I cut the sentiment out using the Stylish Shapes Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I cut 3 of the wheat dies from a panel of Distressed Gold Paper and adhered them under the sentiment using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I added a gold Brushed Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dot to the sentiment.

Stampin' Up! Gathered Wheat 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Gathered Wheat stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink on a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock. I stamped the small wheat image from the Gathered Wheat stamp set on either side of the sentiment in Sahara Sand Ink. I cut the border die from the Wheat Dies from a strip of Very Vanilla cardstock. I adhered the border to the bottom of the panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Very Vanilla mat then to the inside of the Very Vanilla Thick card base.

Stampin' Up! Gathered Wheat 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To complete my card, I decorated a Very Vanilla Medium Envelope. I stamped the wheat image from the Gathered Wheat stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink. I adhered a panel of He’s The Man DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up Cottage Wreaths Fun Fold Video Tutorial

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend. I hope you were able to catch all or some of our Facebook Live videos yesterday. I was able to catch all of them and I thought they were great. A lot of great ideas. If you joined our World Card Making Day Facebook page, the videos will be up until Facebook decides that we can’t keep them, so you can go back and watch them over and over. If you haven’t joined yet, you can still join. We are going to allow people in for a few more days.

Today’s card is the one I made on the Facebook Live yesterday. If you caught me live or watched the replay, thank you. If you want to watch and stamp along, the measurements are listed below. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Cottage Wreath Bundle and the Boughs of Holly Designer Series Paper for my card today.

Here is the template as promised for cutting the card base.

I started by cutting and folding the card base as in the image above. I embossed a panel of Basic White cardstock using the Brick and Mortar 3D Embossing Folder. Using my Blending Brush, I added some Gray Granite Ink lightly to the embossed panel. I adhered the embossed panel to the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered 2 panels of Boughs of Holly DSP to either side of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Cottage Wreaths Photopolymer Stamp Set in Gray Granite Ink. I cut the sentiment out using the Stylish Shapes Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the bottom portion of the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

For the wreath I used the Baby Wipe Technique. I folded a baby wipe in quarters. Using my Cherry Cobbler, Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie and Rich Razzleberry Ink Refills, I added drops of ink on the baby wipe. I inked up the wreath image from the Cottage Wreaths stamp set from the baby wipe and stamped a Basic White panel. I cut the wreath out using the Country Wreaths Dies. I adhered the wreath to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I tied a multi loop bow using Linen Thread and added it to the wreath using a Glue Dot. I added some of the Iridescent Pearl Basic Jewels to the wreath. I added a couple Brushed Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dots to the sentiment.

On the inside I stamped the wreath image from the Cottage Wreath stamp set on a Basic White panel, using the ink from the baby wipe, stamping it off once on scrap paper. I stamped the sentiment from the Cottage Wreaths stamp set in Gray Granite Ink inside the wreath. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Gray Granite mat then to the inside of the Gray Granite card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the wreath image from the Cottage Wreaths stamp set on the bottom of the envelope front. I stamped the sentiment from the Cottage Wreaths stamps et in Gray Granite Ink inside the wreath. I adhered a panel of Boughs of Holly 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. I’m hoping to start doing YouTube lives soon, thanks to all that have subscribed. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Apple Harvest Friendship

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends, welcome to the weekend. I hope you have something fun planned. I’ll be working all day today.

This past Tuesday was our team meeting. After we finish with the business part of the meeting, we do some mystery stamping. Our upline Jaimie gives us measurements of cardstock and DSP and lets us know what other products we may need. The rest is up to us. She talks up through what to do and at the end our cards are all similar, but also very different. Here’s what I came up with.

Stampin' Up! Apple Harvest Friendship 1 creativestanpingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Apple Harvest Bundle along with the Gingham Cottage Designer Series Paper for my card today. This bundle is only available until September 30, 2022. The stamp set is in the July-December 2022 Mini Catalog.

Stampin' Up! Apple Harvest Friendship 2 creativestanpingdesigns.com

I started by making a small mark about 1 3/4″ up from the bottom left front of a So Saffron card base. I cut from that mark to the bottom right corner using my Paper Trimmer.

Stampin' Up! Apple Harvest Friendship 3 creativestanpingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the apple image from the Stampin’ Up! Apple Harvest Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image using my Flirty Flamingo, Granny Apple Green, Poppy Parade, Soft Suede and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image out using my Apple Blossoms Dies. I cut a panel of Granny Apple Green cardstock using the Stylish Shapes Dies. I embossed the die cut panel using the Stitched Greenery Die.

Stampin' Up! Apple Harvest Friendship 4 creativestanpingdesigns.com

I adhered the die cut apple image to the Granny Apple Green panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I tied a small bow with Linen Thread and adhered it to the apple stem using a Glue Dot. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment from the Apple Harvest stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the Basic White panel. I cut the sentiment out using the Harvest Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the card base along the bottom angled edge using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I colored a few of the Pearl Basic Jewels using my Dark Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends Marker. I adhered the pearls to the card front.

Stampin' Up! Apple Harvest Friendship 5 creativestanpingdesigns.com

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Apple Harvest stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Granny Apple Green mat then to the inside top of the So Saffron card base.

Stampin’ Up! Soft Seedlings Josephs Coat

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. I hope everyone’s weekend is going well. I hope you will all take a moment of silence today for all the lives that were lost over 20 years ago. I remember the day like it was yesterday with all our phone going dead and just glued to the tv watching. My children were both in school in lock down until school was over and I could pick them up. I was so scared of what was happening and what could happen. It was a very sad and scary time.

Today’s card is one that we made at our Stamp Camp Class this past Tuesday night. I thought I’d have fun with a couple techniques with the ladies. This one I saw one of my team members make, Mary Deatherage, and I thought it would be perfect with our fall theme. It’s called the Josephs Coat Technique. You can see Mary’s video making this card Here. Here is my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Soft Seedlings Josephs Coat 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

Today’s card once again uses the Stampin’ Up! Soft Seedlings Cling Stamp Set. This is such a perfect set for fall cards and all kinds of techniques.

Stampin' Up! Soft Seedlings Josephs Coat 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started with a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock and using my Blending Brushes I added Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry and Pumpkin Pie Inks completely covering the panel. I set the panel to the side to dry completely. You can also use your Heat Tool on the #1 setting to dry the panel. You want to make sure the ink is completely dry before stamping or the embossing powder will stick to the ink and this technique will not work.

Stampin' Up! Soft Seedlings Josephs Coat 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

Once the panel was completely dry, I stamped the large leaf image from the Soft Seedlings stamp set in Versamark Ink randomly around the panel. I sprinkled it with my Clear Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. Once the panel cooled, I used my Blending Brush again and brushed Early Espresso Ink all over the panel completely covering it again. Once I had the amount of ink I wanted, I took a paper towel and gently rubbed all over the panel wiping the ink off the embossed areas and letting the colors shine through. I adhered the panel to an Early Espresso mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to a Very Vanilla Thick card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Soft Seedlings Josephs Coat 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a small panel of Very Vanilla cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Soft Seedlings stamp set in Cajun Craze Ink. I cut the sentiment out using my Stylish Shapes Dies. I adhered a piece of Old Olive ribbon from the Old Olive & Sahara Sand Twill Ribbon Combo Pack to the card front. I adhered the sentiment over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a Textural Element to the card front just under the sentiment using a Glue Dot. I added a few Brushed Metallic Adhesive Backed Dots to the card front.

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Soft Seedlings stamp set in Cajun Craze Ink on a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock. I used my Blending Brushes and added color to the large leaf image from the Soft Seedlings stamp set and stamped the leaves on the panel. I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to an Early Espresso mat and then to the inside of the Very Vanilla Thick card base

To finish my card, I decorated a Very Vanilla Medium Envelope. I stamped the large leaf image from the Soft Seedlings stamp set on the envelope front and flap in Cajun Craze and Pumpkin Pie Inks.

Stampin’ Up! Willow Tree Get Well Card

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends. I hope you all had a wonderful Labor Day weekend and were able to do something fun.

I played with a new set to me today from the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog. As most of you know, I do not like the color yellow and I especially do not like Crushed Curry. That’s what I used today. Even though I don’t like it, I do like it for fall cards. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Willow Tree Get Well 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Willow Tree Bundle along with the Stampin’ Up! Through It Together Cling Stamp Set and Butterfly Kisses 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my card today.

Stampin' Up! Willow Tree Get Well 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by adhering a panel of Butterfly Kisses DSP to a Garden Green mat. I adhered the layered panel to a Crushed Curry card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Willow Tree Get Well 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the tree trunk image from the Stampin’ Up! Willow Tree Photopolymer Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink. I stamped the tree top image from the Willow Tree stamp set in Crushed Curry Ink on the tree trunk. On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the smaller tree top image from the Willow Tree stamp set in Crushed Curry Ink and cut the image out using my Willow Dies. Using my Willow Dies, I cut the leaf dies from a panel of Crushed Curry cardstock. I adhered the leaf dies to the stamped image using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the die cut tree top image to the stamped image using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Willow Tree Get Well 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the bottom of the panel, I stamped the solid grass image from the Willow Tree stamp set in Garden Green Ink below the tree. I stamped the detailed grass image from the Willow Tree stamp set in Garden Green Ink around the solid image. I stamped the bunny image from the Willow Tree stamp set in Gray Granite Ink. I adhered the panel to a Garden Green mat. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Through It Together stamp set in Soft Suede Ink. I cut the sentiment out using the Stylish Shapes Dies and adhered it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I added a few Brushed Brass Butterflies to the card front.

Stampin' Up! Willow Tree Get Well 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside, I stamped the sentiments from the Through It Together stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the leaf image from the Willow Tree stamp set in Crushed Curry Ink along the top of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Garden Green mat and then to the inside of the Crushed Curry card base.

Stampin' Up! Willow Tree Get Well 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends and welcome to the weekend. Does anyone have any fun plans? I have off today, and we have a couple visitors coming over to meet Coraline. My plans other than that is to hopefully get to my card table for a bit.

We have members that live on the east coast, west coast and center US. Since everyone lives all over, this is the best way we could get together every month. I’d love for you to join in with us, it’s a lot of fun. Interested? Ask me how. Here’s today’s card.
