Stampin’ Up! Happy Birthday To You

Good Monday morning my stamping friends.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Did anyone do anything fun?  I worked both days.  Saturday would have been a perfect day to stay in and craft here, it rained and rained all day.

For today’s card I used some of the Sale-A-Bration goodies that you can get for free with qualifying orders.  Here’s my card.

My colors were inspired by CAS Colour & Sketch Challenge #354.  Here are their colors.

My design was from Freshly Made Sketches #419.  Here is their sketch.

I started by embossing a Rococo Rose card front using the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder and a Seaside Spray card front using the Stone 3D Embossing Folder.  The Stone 3D Embossing folder is part of the Power of Hope Bundle you can earn  from Sale-A-Bration for FREE.  I adhered the Seaside Spray panel to the Rococo Rose panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, on an angle.  I cut the excess off using my Paper Trimmer.  I then adhered it to a Rococo Rose card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the cake image from the Stampin’ Up! Happy Birthday To You Cling Stamp Set (FREE Sals-A-Bration item) in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the image in using my Granny Apple Green, Rococo Rose and Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I brushed over the cake part of the image using my Clear Wink of Stella to give it a little shimmer. I fussy cut the image our using my Paper Snips.  I adhered the cake image to the Seaside Spray card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a thin strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Happy Birthday To You stamp set in Rococo Rose Ink.  I adhered the strip to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and a Glue Dot.  On a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped just the top of the cake image from the Happy Birthday To You stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink to get the flower image.  I colored the flower in using  my Granny Apple Green and Rococo Rose Stampin’ Blends Markers and fussy cut it using my Paper Snips.  I adhered the flower to the end of the sentiment using a Glue Dot and a Stampin’ Dimensional.  I added some Clear Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the flower centers on the cake and the fussy cut flower.  I added a few Granny Apple Green Glitter Enamel Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Happy Birthday To You stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I stamped the cake image from the Happy Birthday To You stamp set in Seaside Spray Ink, stamping off once, to the center of the Whisper White panel over the sentiment.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Seaside Spray mat using Snail 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 top of the cake image from the Happy Birthday To You stamp set on and angle  on the bottom of the envelope front.  I colored the image in using my Granny Apple Green and Rococo Rose Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a Rococo Rose panel of the 2019-2021 In-Color 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! Honey Bee Hello

Good Wednesday morning from Disney World my fellow stampers.  How is everyone’s week going?  We made it here safely and we’re out and running already.  Yesterday we had a pretty laid back day, only a little over 14,000 steps and 6 1/2 miles walked.  We’re heading over to Magic Kingdom today, so I’m sure there will be more miles covered.  My 24 year old son is so excited to go on the Buzz Light Year Space Ranger Spin (so he can beat all of us), Pirates of the Caribbean and Haunted Mansion.  There’s something about Disney that brings the child back out of you.

I have an adorable card for you today, at least I think it is.  I used the new Stampin’ Up! Honey Bee Bundle from page 30 of the new 2020 January-June Mini Catalog with the coordinating Designer Series Paper from the Sale-A-Bration Catalog.  I actually CASEd the card from the Sale-A-Bration catalog.  Here’s my card.

I started by adhering a panel of the Golden Honey Specialty Designer Series Paper to a Thick Very Vanilla card base using Snail.  Using the Detailed Bee Dies I cut the honeycomb out of a Gold Foil Sheet.  I adhered some of the honey pieces to the card front using Glue Dots.

On a small strip of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped 3 large bees from the Stampin’ Up! Honey Bee Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I cut the bees out using the Detailed Bee Dies.  I colored the stripes on the bees in using my Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends Marker.  I went over the wings of the bees using my Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush.  I adhered the honeycomb to a Very Vanilla panel, which I embossed using the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder, using a tiny amount of Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the top and bottom bee to the panel using Glue Dots and the bee on the honeycomb using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  On a very thin strip of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Honey Bee stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I adhered the sentiment to the very vanilla panel using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added one of the honey pieces to the end of the strip using a Glue Dot.

I adhered a piece of 3/8″ Gold Metallic Edge Ribbon to the card front using Snail.  I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the bee hive from the Honey Bee stamp set in So Saffron Ink in the center of a Very Vanilla panel.  I stamped the smaller bee image from the Honey Bee stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink next to the hive.  I stamped the sentiment from the Honey Bee stamp set above the hive in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the stripes on the bee in using my Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends Marker.  I used my Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush on the bees wings.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Basic Black mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Thick Very Vanilla card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I stamped the large bee image from the Honey Bee stamp set twice in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front.  I colored the stripes on the bees in using my Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends Marker and the wings on the bee using my Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush.  I adhered a panel of Golden Honey Specialty 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! Happy Birthday To You Sneak Peek for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop. It’s the 2nd Tuesday of the month and you know what that means, Blog Hop Day!! If you are starting with me, be sure to hop around to see everyone’s awesome projects. If you’ve hopped over from Amy Koenders blog, welcome to my blog and thank you for stopping by. The theme this month is “Celebrate”. We can interpret this any way that we’d like.

For today’s card I’m giving you a little sneak peek of an upcoming Sale-A-Bration stamp set.  I knew I wanted this set the first time I saw it at OnStage.

My colors were inspired by Fab Friday Challenge #178.  Here are their colors.

I played along with Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge #329 for my design.  Here is their sketch.

I started by stamping the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Happy Birthday To You Cling Stamp Set, (new Sale-A-Bration item starting January 3, 2020), in Mossy Meadow Ink on the bottom of a Pear Pizzazz card front.  I embossed the Pear Pizzazz card front using the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder.

I wrapped a piece of the Seaside Spray Metallic Ribbon around the card front then adhered the card front to a Merry Merlot mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the matted card front to a Whisper White card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the cake image from the Happy Birthday To You stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink .  I colored the cake in using my Mossy Meadow and Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers and my Merry Merlot and Pear Pizzazz Stampin’ Write Markers.  I fussy cut the cake using my Paper Snips and adhered the cake to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the flower centers on the cake.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Happy Birthday To You stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the top of the cake image from the Happy Birthday To You stamp set on the bottom corner of the panel and colored it in the same as I did on the card front.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pear Pizzazz mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the cake image from the Happy Birthday To You stamp set on the front of the envelope.  I adhered a panel of the Subtle 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Christmas Birds of A Feather

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  I’d like to take a moment to honor and thank all our Veterans.  I for one had 2 in my family.  My dad was in World War II serving in the Army and my brother was in Vietnam serving in the Navy.  My brother got out on medical discharge, but he still served shortly.  So Thank You to all those who have served for us.   How was everyone’s weekend?  Did anyone do anything fun and exciting?  After a fun cold time at the zoo on Friday, I had to work both Saturday and Sunday.  It was a bit colder than I expected this weekend.  I’m not quite ready for temps in the 40’s yet.  Fall is in full bloom here.  The leaves have changed and fallen from the trees (except for my tree in the front yard which always forgets that it’s fall).  My husband got to rake the leaves all day Saturday and of course my fur baby helped.  She supervised making sure he was doing it right.

For today I have a fun card for you using the Stampin’ Up! Birds of a Feather Cling Stamp Set.  I almost forgot that this set has a Christmas bird.  Here’s my card.

My colors were inspired by the CAS Colour & Sketch Challenge #346.  I was determined to make these colors work for a Christmas card.  Here are their colors.

My design came from the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #410.  Here is their sketch.

I started by embossing a Poppy Parade card front using the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder.  I wrapped a piece of the Silver 3/8″ Metallic Edge Ribbon around the card front and tied a bow.  I adhered the card front to a Poppy Parade card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the Christmas bird from the Birds of a Feather stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a Whisper White panel.  I cut the image out using the 3rd largest Layering Square Die.  I colored the image in using my Mango Melody and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I used some of the new Snowfall Accents Puff Paint on the fur part of the hat and the pompom.  I adhered the artwork to a Highland Heather scallop square cut from the 4th largest Layering Squares Dies.  I adhered the artwork to the scallop square using Snail and added a Star Designer Elements to the artwork.

I stamped the sentiment from the Birds of a Feather stamp set in Mango Melody Ink on the Whisper White panel.  I cut the sentiment out using the 4th largest Layering Squares Die.  I adhered the sentiment to a Highland Heather scallop square cut from the 5th largest Layering Squares Dies using Snail.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the artwork on top of the sentiment using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Birds of a Feather stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the Christmas bird image from the Birds of a Feather stamp set popping out on either side of the sentiment in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored them in using my Mango Melody and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Highland Heather mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Poppy Parade card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the bird image from the Birds of a Feather stamp set on the envelope front and colored it in the same as I did for the card.  I stamped the star image from the Birds of a Feather stamp set in Mango Melody Ink along the edges of the envelope flap.

Thank you for visiting my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Cup Of Cheer

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  How has everyone’s week started off?  We’re starting to have very chilly nights here and cool days.  Perfect fall weather.  I love when I have extra time to craft this time of year, unfortunately I always seem to have to work extra hours.

I have a non-traditional color Christmas card for you today.  Take a look.

My colors were inspired by Inspire. Create Challenge #055.  Here are their colors.

My design came from Mojo Monday Sketch #526.  Here is their sketch

I started by embossing a Night of Navy card front using the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the card front to a Night of Navy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered a Lovely Lipstick panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered 2 banners to the top of the Lovely Lipstick panel.  One in the Noble Peacock Specialty Designer Series Paper using Snail.  The other banner is Blushing Bride I stamped with the poinsettia image from the Stampin’ Up! Cup of Christmas Photopolymer Stamp Set in Blushing Bride Ink, which I adhered using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I stamped the sentiment from the Cup of Christmas stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on a Whisper White panel.  I cut the sentiment out using my Layering Circles Dies. 

Using the Cup of Cheer Dies I cut the cup out of Blushing Bride cardstock.  I cut the inner portion of the cup out of Lovely Lipstick cardstock using the Cup of Cheers Dies.  I cut the candy cane out of Whisper White and Lovely Lipstick cardstock usng the Cup of Cheer Dies.  I adhered the inner cup piece to the cup using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the Lovely Lipstick candy cane to the top of the Whisper White candy cane using tiny dots of Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the candy cane to the back of the cup using a Glue Dot.  I adhered the cup to the sentiment circle using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added 3 Old Olive Noble Peacock Rhinestones to the center of the poinsettia on the cup.

On the inside I stamped the cup image from the Cup of Christmas stamp set in Blushing Bride Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the Cup of Christmas stamp set in the center of the cup in Night of Navy Ink  I adhered the Whisper White panel to an Old Olive mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Night of Navy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the cup image from the Cup of Christmas stamp set in Blushing Bride Ink on the envelope front  I stamped a sentiment from the Cup of Christmas stamp set in Night of Navy Ink in the center of the cup.  I stamped the poinsettia image from the Cup of Christmas stamp set in Blushing Bride Ink on the envelope flap.

For today I have a quick and easy card for you, despite the layers.  These cards unfortunately I always like to have on hand.  Here’s my card.

My card played along with a few challenges today.  I joined in with TGIF Color Challenge #228.  Here are their colors.

I played along with Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge #522.  Here is their sketch.

I also played along with Inspire. Create. Theme Challenge #051.  Here is their theme.

I started by embossing a panel of Merry Merlot cardstock with my Subtle 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the card front to a Merry Merlot card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered a panel of Merry Merlot Neutrals 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Very Vanilla mat using Snail.  I adhered the matted DSP to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small panel of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Woven Heirlooms Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I stamped the scroll image from the Woven Heirlooms stamp set in Merry Merlot Ink on the top and bottom of the panel.  I adhered the sentiment panel to a Very Vanilla mat using Snail.  I adhered the matted sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I colored 2 Rhinestone Basic Jewels using my Dark Basic Black Stampin’ Blend Marker and adhered them to the scroll image.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Woven Heirlooms stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink to the center of a Very Vanilla panel.  I stamped the scroll images from the Woven Heirlooms stamp set in Merry Merlot Ink around the Very Vanilla panel.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to the inside of the Merry Merlot card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I adhered a panel of the Merry Merlot Neutrals 6 X 6 DSP to the envelope flap and the front of the envelope.

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

Stampin’ Up Harvest Hellos Sneak Peek for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to Fun Fold Friday.  How has everyone’s week gone?  Are you ready for the 3 day weekend?  Do you have some fun picnic plans for Monday?

Today I have a Joy Fold card for you featuring one of the new bundles in the upcoming 2019 Holiday Catalog called Harvest Hellos.  Here’s my card.

I started by embossing a Whisper White panel with my Subtle 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Poppy Parade card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the Pacific Point card base in the center of the Whisper White panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue with the opening to the left.

I stamped the apple seed image from the Stampin’ Up Harvest Hellos Cling Stamp Set along the bottom of a Poppy Parade Brights 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored them in using my Dark Basic Black Stampin’ Blends Marker.  On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the apple slice image from the Harvest Hellos stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink twice.  I colored the image in using my Poppy Parade and Dark Basic Black Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I fussy cut the images using my Paper Snips.  I adhered the apple slices above the stamped seeds on the Brights 6 X 6 DSP using Glue Dots on the bottom one and Stampin’ Dimensionals. on the top one.  I stamped the sentiment from the Harvest Hellos stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the top of the DSP panel. I adhered the DSP panel to a Whisper White mat using Snail and then to the front left side of the card base.

I stamped the apple image from the Harvest Hellos stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink twice on a Whisper White panel.  I colored the images in using my Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I punched the apples out using my Apple Builder Punch.  I stamped the stem and leaf images from the Harvest Hellos stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the Whisper White panel.  I colored them in using my Crumb Cake and Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I punched the stems and leaves out using my Apple Builder Punch and adhered them to the apple using Glue Dots.  Using my Gathered Leaves Dies I cut out a Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry, Old Olive, Rich Razzleberry and Shaded Spruce leaves.  I adhered a woodgrain panel of Come To Gather Designer Series Paper to the front of the Pacific Point card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the leaves along the bottom of the card front, avoiding the right folded edge, using Glue Dots.  I adhered the apples on top of the leaves using Glue Dots and Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the apple seed and apple slice images from the Harvest Hellos stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink along the bottom of a Whisper White panel.  I colored the images in using my Dark Basic Black and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Country Home Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of the Whisper White panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Pacific Point card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the apple image from the Harvest Hellos stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front.  I colored it in the same as I did for the card.  I adhered a Poppy Parade panel 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. The stamp set used for today’s card will be available on September 4th for purchase. Hope you all have a wonderful 3 day weekend and have some fun plans.

Happy Stamping!!
