Stampin’ Up Natures Beauty Sneak Peek

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Did anyone do anything fun or exciting?  It was a beautiful weekend here. I went for a couple walks on Sunday.  I took a walk into town in the morning and since it was still cool enough I was able to bring Jasmine for a walk.  I feel so bad not bringing her, but the pavement is just too hot for her paws.  She love walking into town, she always thinks we’re going to her store, the dog bakery.  She knows they always give her extra treats.  Unfortunately they weren’t open yet.  Then in the afternoon my family and I went over to Dukes Estate for a nice long walk.  We only walked about 3 miles this time compared to the 7 last time we went.  I can’t wait to go back there in the fall when all the leaves are changing, and it will be a little cooler then.

I have another sneak peek from the 2019 Holiday Catalog for you.  Here’s my card for you today.

I joined in with Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #400 with my card today.  Here is their sketch.

My colors were inspired by CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge #333.  Here are their colors.

I started by stamping the sentiment from Stampin’ Up A Little Lace Cling Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink on the bottom of an Old Olive card front. I embossed the card front using the Woodland Embossing Folder and added 3 Gold Metallic Pearls to the top.

I embossed a small panel of Grapefruit Grove card stock using the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder and then adhered it to a Cajun Craze mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the matted panel to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I wrapped a piece of the Old Olive/Pretty Peacock 3/8″ Reversible Ribbon around the card front and using Multipurpose Liquid Glue I adhered the card front to an Old Olive card base.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the tree image from the Stampin’ Up Natures Beauty Cling Stamp Set (available Sept 4) in Soft Suede Ink a couple of times.  Using my Stamping Sponges I sponged the Whisper White panel using my Grapefruit Grove Ink on the top and Old Olive Ink on the bottom.   Using the grass image from the Natures Beauty stamp set I stamped some grass around the bottom sponged area in Old Olive Ink.  I adhered the sponged panel to a Cajun Craze mat using Snail.  On a small piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the fox image from the Natures Beauty stamp set in Cajun Craze Ink and fussy cut the image out using my Paper Snips.  I adhered the fox to the sponged panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals and adhered the panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I cut a leaf out of Cajun Craze cardstock using the Gathered Leaves Dies (available Sept 4).  I adhered the leaf to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the fox image from the Natures Beauty stamp set in Cajun Craze Ink, stamping off once, on the bottom of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the tree image from the Natures Beauty stamp set in Soft Suede Ink, stamping off twice, 3 times across the middle of the Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up A Big Thank You Photopolymer Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink in the center of the Whisper White panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Cajun Craze mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Old Olive card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the fox image from the Natures Beauty stamp set in Cajun Craze Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped the tree images from the Natures Beauty stamp set in Soft Suede Ink, some full strength and some stamped off, across the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you like my card.  This set will be available for purchase on September 4th.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up Above The Clouds Birthday Card

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  How is everyone doing today?  We’re halfway through the week already.  I’ll be making my annual visit to the 4-H fair with my niece and 2 little nephews today.  She loves bringing the boys to see the animals and the train tent along with other tents.  Hopefully the weather will hold off, we’re expecting thunder storms today.  I always feel bad when it rains on the fair.  All the work those kids do and then to get stormed on is horrible.

Onto today’s card.  For today I made you a masculine card.  They are always cards I struggle with.  After the Balloon Festival here in NJ last week I was inspired to make a hot air balloon card.  Here’s my card.

My card joined in with Sunday Stamps Triple The Fun Challenge #210.  Here is their sketch.

I started with a Cajun Craze card front and embossed it using my Subtle 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the card front to a Thick Very Vanilla card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered a panel of Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper to a mat of Mossy Meadow cardstock using Snail and then adhered it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a scrap of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped 3 of the hot air balloons from the Stampin’ Up Above The Clouds Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I stamped 2 of the same and 1 of the other.  I colored the balloons in using my Cajun Craze, Mossy Meadow and Night of Navy Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I punched the balloons out using my Hot Air Balloon Punch.  On a scrap of Crumb Cake cardstock I stamped the balloon basket from the Above The Clouds stamp set 3 times in Crumb Cake Ink.  I punched the baskets out using the Hot Air Balloon Punch.  I cut out 2 of the same size rectangles from the Stitched Rectangles Dies in Crumb Cake cardstock and Very Vanilla cardstock.

On the bottom of the Very Vanilla stitched rectangle I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Itty Bitty Birthday’s Cling Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink.  I adhered the Crumb Cake stitched rectangle to the top of the Very Vanilla stitched rectangle using Snail.  I adhered the baskets to the bottom of the hot air balloons using Glue Dots.  I adhered the 2 similar hot air balloons to the Crumb Cake rectangle using Glue Dots.  I adhered the 3rd hot air balloon in front of the other 2 using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the artwork panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Itty Bitty Birthday’s stamp set in Night of Navy Ink in the center of a Very Vanilla panel.  I stamped the smaller balloon image from the Above The Clouds stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink around the sentiment.  I colored the balloons in using my Cajun Craze, Mossy Meadow and Night of Navy Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Cajun Craze mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Thick Very Vanilla card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card off I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I stamped the smaller balloon image from the Above The Clouds stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored them in the same as I did for the card.  I adhered a panel of Come Sail Away 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 Free As A Bird Thank You Card

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  How has everyone’s week started off?  Before I get started, don’t forget to check out my ordering special down below.  There’s less than a week to take advantage of it.

For today’s card I used a few different techniques, Embossing, Masking, Layering, Coloring, you get the drift.  Here’s my card.

I started by stamping the larger bird from the Stampin’ Up Free As A Bird Cling Stamp Set on a Whisper White panel in Early Espresso Ink.  I stamped the flowers and the leaves from the Free As A Bird stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on top of the panel using the Masking Technique.  I stamped the sentiment from the Free As A Bird stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on an angle on the top of the Whisper White panel.  I colored the bird, flowers and leaves in using my Calypso Coral, Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, Petal Pink and Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the artwork to a Pool Party mat using Snail.

I adhered 2 panels of Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper onto Pool Party Mats using Snail.  I embossed my Pool Party card front using the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder to give a little background texture.

I adhered the 2 matted DSP panels to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the matted artwork on top of the DSP using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the card front to a Pool Party card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the bird from the Free As A Bird stamp set in Early Espresso Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel stamping off 4 times.  I stamped the sentiment from the Free As A Bird stamp set over the top of the bird.  I stamped the flowers and leaves from the Free As A Bird stamp set in Early Espresso Ink in the corners of the Whisper White panel.  I colored the flowers and leaves in using my Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, Petal Pink and Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Pool Party card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the bird, flowers and leaves from the Free As A Bird stamp set on the envelope front in Early Espresso Ink and colored them in the same as I did for the card.  I adhered a panel of  Bird Ballad 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!!
