Stampin’ Up! Sending Charming Smiles

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone’s weekend going? I worked all day yesterday and was it ever busy. I’m working at the dog bakery today and it’s supposed to be another beautiful day, so I’m guessing it’ll be a busy one. Hopefully lots of pups will come is so we can give them treats.

I have a clean and simple card today. I’m trying to come up with designs for my card class this week. I have a couple new ladies coming and I’m not sure of their style. I’m trying to keep things a little on the simpler side. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Sending Smiles Bundle along with the Stampin’ Up! Charming Sentiments Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Subtle 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by adhering a panel of Subtle DSP to a Petal Pink card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the stem images from the Sending Smiles stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink. I stamped the flower images from the Sending Smiles stamp set in Petal Pink Ink on the double stem. I stamped the flower centers in So Saffron Ink.

I cut the panel out using the 2nd largest Stitched Rectangle Dies. I stamped the sentiment from the Charming Sentiments stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink on the top of the panel. On a scrap of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the small flower image from the Sending Smiles stamp set in Orchid Oasis Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper. I cut the flower out using my Sending dies. I adhered the cut flower to the smaller stem using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the stamped panel to a panel of Mint Macaron cardstock on an angle using Stampin’ Seal.

I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Charming Sentiments stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the stem image from the Sending Smiles stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the flower images from the Sending Smiles stamp set in Petal Pink Ink and the flower centers in So Saffron Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Mint Macaron 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 stems from the Sending Smiles stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink on the envelope front. I stamped the flower images from the Sending Smiles stamp set in Orchid Oasis, stamped off once on scrap paper, and Petal Pink Ink on the stems. I stamped the flower centers in So Saffron Ink. I adhered a panel of Subtle 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! Mischievous Mice Thanks

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend? It was a rainy one here Saturday but turned out to be pretty nice on Sunday. Yesterday after our team meeting, I finally got some of my Paper Pumpkin kits finished. I’m determined to get myself caught up with all the kits I have and then maybe I can get them done as they come in each month. I was able to finish 3 kits, which was 27 cards. I have one kit sitting on my table all taken apart to finish after work today.

Today’s card uses the basics, Stamps, Ink and Paper. I thought I’d do something simple for a change, lol. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Mischievous Mice Cling Host Stamp Set for my card today.

My design is from Inspire. Create. Challenge #116.

I started by stamping the mouse image from the Mischievous Mice stamp set on a panel of Basic White cardstock in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image in using my Crumb Cake, Flirty Flamingo, Gray Granite, Smoky Slate and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I stamped the splatter image from the Stampin’ Up! Color & Contour Photopolymer Stamp Set in So Saffron Ink on the 2 corners of the panel.

I stamped the sentiment from the Mischievous Mice stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink next to the mouse image on the card front. I adhered the card front to a Basic White Thick card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Mischievous Mice stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the splatter image from the Color & Contour stamp set in So Saffron Ink on the 2 corners of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to the inside of the Basic White Thick card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the mouse image and the sentiment from the Mischievous Mice stamp set on the envelope front in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of Subtle 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to the envelope flap.

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

Stampin’ Up! Flowering Rain Boots

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. We’re halfway through the week and on the downhill to the weekend. Hope you are all having a wonderful week.

I was looking through my card stash yesterday and wanted to send a thinking of you card. I realized I don’t have many cards that are for ‘just because’. So, I decided to make one. Have you ever had one of those crafting days that everything goes wrong? It took me 5 tries to get this card right. I knew exactly what I wanted, but it just wouldn’t go on paper that way. Then when I thought I had it, the ink smudged. Tuesday is usually my day to get myself a little ahead, not yesterday. We’ll blame it on the weather. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin” Up! Flowering Rain Boots Bundle along with the Subtle 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my card today.

My colors are from Sunday Stamps Sweet Pastels Challenge #281.

I played along with The Paper Players Clean & Simple Challenge #587, April Showers.

I started by stamping the grass image from the Stampin’ Up! Paradise Palms Cling Stamp Set in Mint Macaron Ink along the bottom of a Basic White card front. On a panel of the Subtle DSP I stamped the rain boots image from the Stampin’ Up! Flowering Rain Boots Photopolymer Stamp Set in Blushing Bride Ink. I cut the boots out using my Rain Boots Dies.

I stamped the stem/leaves image from the Flowering Rain Boots stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink on the Basic Whtie card front. I stamped the tulip heads image from the Flowering Rain Boots stamp set on the stems in Highland Heather Ink on top of the stem. I adhered the rain boots to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Flowering Rain Boots stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink on the card front. From a strip of Basic White cardstock I cut the cloud looking die from the Basic Borders Dies and adhered it to the top of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the card front to a So Saffron mat and then to the front of a Basic White Thick card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I added Silver & Clear Epoxy Essentials that looked like rain drops to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Flowering Rain Boots stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the stem/leaves image from the Flowering Rain Boots stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the tulip heads in Highland Heather Ink on top of the stems. I adhered the Basic White panel to a So Saffron 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 stems/leaves image from the Flowering Rain Boots stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink on the bottom of the envelope front and the tulips in Highland Heather Ink on the top of the stems. I adhered a panel of Subtle 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! Fresh Cut Flowers Sneak Peek for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers. 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 amazing 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 “For The Ladies/Girls”.  We can interpret this however we want.  Here’s my card for today.

I used the new Stampin’ Up! Fresh Cut Flowers Cling Stamp Set along with the new Fabulous Frames Dies from the upcoming 2022-2023 Annual Catalog for my card today.

I started by adhering a panel of Mint Macaron Subtle 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Mint Macaron card base. I stamped the large floral image from the Fresh Cut Flowers stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I colored the image in using my Mint Macaron and Pale Papaya Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I cut the image out using the largest frame from the Fabulous Frames Dies. This die cuts out the image and cuts a frame at the same time. I adhered the cut floral image to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the frame to the card front, lining it up with the artwork, using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a few Mint Macaron Genial Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Inspired Thoughts Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the floral image from the Fresh Cut Flowers stamp set on the bottom of the panel in Tuxedo Black Ink and colored it using my Mint Macaron and Pale Papaya Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Mint Macaron mat and then to the inside of the Mint Macaron card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic Whtie Medium Envelope. I stamped the floral image from the Fresh Cut Flowers stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and colored it using my Mint Macaron and Pale Papaya Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of the Subtle DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for visiting by my blog today, I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Now that you’ve seen my card, be sure to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects.

Stampin’ Up! Calming Camellia Stenciled CAS Card

Good Monday morning my stamping friends and Happy Valentine’s Day. Who goes out to dinner or still makes plans with your Valentine? Nothing done here at my house. Did you watch the whole Super Bowl? I caught a couple of the commercials, but that was about it.

One more reminder that today is the LAST DAY of my Valentine Special ‘STUCK ON YOU’. Don’t forget to get those orders in before 11:00pm ET in order to get a free adhesive. Details are listed HERE.

I played with something new today for my card and I think I will be playing with them a lot more. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Calming Camellia Cling Stamp Set, which is a Sale-a-bration Host set for my card today. I also used the Butterflies & Flowers Layering Decorative Masks.

I started by stamping the sentiment from the Calming Camellia set on the bottom of a
Basic White panel in Calypso Coral Ink. I arranged the Butterfly & Flowers Layering Decorative Mask just above the sentiment and held it in place with a couple pieces of Post-In Note Tape. Using my Blending Brushes, I added Petal Pink Ink to the floral cluster.

I rotated the Butterfly & Flowers Mask and lined up the flowers from the mask with the flowers on the cardstock, holding it in place with the Post-It Note Tape again. Using my Blending Brush again, I added Petal Pink Ink to the flower cluster.

I adhered the Basic White panel to a Calypso Coral mat and then to a Petal Pink card base. I added a few Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front. I tied a bow using the Petal Pink 5/8″ Organdy Striped Ribbon and adhered it to the card front with a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Calming Camellia stamp set in Calypso Coral Ink on a Basic White panel. I placed my Butterflies & Flowers Mask over the sentiment and using my Blending Brush I added Petal Pink Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Calypso Coral mat and then to the inside of the Petal Pink card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. Using my Butterfly & Flowers Mask and Blending Brush, I added Petal Pink Ink to the corner of the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the Subtle 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to the envelope flap.

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

Stampin’ Up! Blessings of Home Birthday CAS Sneak Peek

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone’s weekend going? How is everyone doing with their holiday shopping, card mailing and decorating? My cards are all made, I just haven’t had the energy to write them out yet. Most of my house is decorated, but not how I normally do it. Shopping, well that’s another whole story lol.

Today’s card is another sneak peek for you using a set that we got to purchase before our OnStage event in November. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Blessings of Home Cling Stamp Set along with the Heart & Home Designer Series Paper and the Subtle 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my card today.

My colors are from CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge #449.

I started by stamping the small floral image from the Blessings of Home stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Heart & Home DSP. I colored the image in using my Cherry Cobbler, Mint Macaron and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the artwork to a Cherry Cobbler mat using Stampin’ Seal.

I adhered the layered panel to a Subtle DSP card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I wrapped a piece of the White Bakers Twine from the Bakers Twine Essential Pack around the top of the panel and tied a bow. I adhered the card front to a So Saffron card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Blessings of Home stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I cut the strip into a banner using my Banners Pick A Punch and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Blessings of Home stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I adhered a strip of the Subtle DSP to the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a So Saffron mat and then to the inside of the So Saffron card base.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the small floral image from the Blessings of Home stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I colored the flower in the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of the Subtle DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card. These items will be available for purchase starting January 4, 2022 from the January-June 2022 Mini Catalog. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Quiet Meadow part 2

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends. Welcome to the long holiday weekend, if you live in the US. This weekend is usually the close to the summer even though there’s 3 weeks left. I hope you have something fun planned for the weekend even if it’s to just take the day off and relax. We had a wonderful time yesterday at the Sunflower maze. Thousands of sunflowers and 2 mazes of them to walk through.. I’ll share some pictures shortly with you. I was even able to bring a few home with me along with a bag full of seeds that I can plant next summer and the following one. I can’t wait to see my own growing.

Today’s card is the 2nd part to the card I showed on Wednesday. You can see that card Here. The card from Wednesday and today’s shows how to used both the positive and negative of a die cut. This is another card we’ll be making at my class on Tuesday night. Here’s my card.

I used the Stampin Up! Quiet Meadow Bundle for my card today.

I started by randomly stamping the type image from the Quiet Meadow stamp set in Cinnamon Cider Ink on a Cinnamon Cider card front. I adhered the card front to a petal Pink card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I had the leaf die cut that I cut our for Wednesday’s card still. From a panel of Basic White cardstock I cut 2 of the dies from the Meadow Dies. I adhered the 3 die cut pieces to the Cinnamon Cider card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small piece of Petal Pink cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Quiet Meadow stamp set in Cinnamon Cider Ink. I cut the sentiment out using the Meadow Dies. I threaded a piece of Linen Thread through the sentiment tag and tied a bow. I adhered the sentiment to the bouquet using a Stampin’ Dimensional. I added a few Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Quiet Meadow stamp set in Cinnamon Cider Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the floral image from the Quiet Meadow stamp set in Cinnamon Cider Ink, stamping off once, on the side of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Petal Pink mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Petal Pink card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the typed image from the Quiet Meadow stamp set in Cinnamon Cider Ink along the bottom of the envelope. I adhered a panel of Subtle 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 Shaded Summer for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Does anyone have any plans for the weekend yet? I’ll be working all weekend between both jobs. I had requested Sunday off, but I guess they didn’t see it when they made up the schedule.

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! Shaded Summer Cling Stamp Set for my card along with the Summer Shadow Dies (available August 3rd as a Sale-a-bration item).

This is the template for making my card. I started by cutting a panel of Calypso Coral cardstock as in the diagram above.

I adhered 2 panels of the Petal Pink Subtle 6 X 6 Designer Series paper to the card front panels using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered 2 more panels of the Subtle DSP to the inside card front panels using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I made the belly band using a strip of Calypso Coral cardstock and wrapped it around the finished card. I adhered Tear & Tape to the ends of the belly band to adhere them together. I cut a panel of Petal Pink cardstock using the largest die from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. I stamped it with the floral image from the Shaded Summer stamp set in Petal Pink Ink. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Many Happenings Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink and cut it out using the Messages Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the top of the die cut panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals and then adhered it to the belly band using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I added a few Champagne Rhinestones to the belly band.

For the inside panel I stamped the 2 floral images from the Shaded Summer stamp set in Petal Pink Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Elegantly Said Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink over the floral image. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Calypso Coral mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to only the bottom portion of the easel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered a Basic White panel to a Petal Pink mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Calypso Coral card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue

Using the Summer Shadow Dies (Sale-a-bration item available August 3rd). I adhered a panel of Calypso Coral and Shaded Spruce cardstocks to an Adhesive Sheet. I cut the detailed flowers from a panel of Calypso Coral cardstock. I cut the solid flowers from a panel of Petal Pink cardstock. I cut the detailed leaves from a panel of Shaded Spruce cardstock and the solid leaves from a panel of Soft Succulent cardstock. I adhered the detailed flowers and leaves to the solid flowers and leaves using the Adhesive Sheet. I adhered the flowers to the bottom of the inner liner using Stampin’ Dimensionals and adhered the leaves using a Glue Dot. I added a Champagne Rhinestone to the center of the larger flower. I didn’t stamp a sentiment on the inside. I need to write a special message for the recipient of the card.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the floral images from the Shaded Summer stamp set in Petal Pink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of Petal Pink Subtle 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. If you do CASE this card, please feel free to post it in the comments of my Facebook page under this 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.

I colored the image in using my Shaded Spruce and Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin’ Up! Arrange A Wreath for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends and welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. I hope everyone is doing well today. If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we have a Theme Challenge. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects. I used the Stampin’ Up! Arrange A Wreath Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Greetings Cling Stamp Set for my card. Here is my card using this weeks theme.

I played along with the Tic Tac Toe Challenge #105. I went across the middle

I also played along with As You See It Challenge #246.

Here is our theme this week.

I started by embossing a Just Jade card front using the Brick and Mortar 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the embossed panel to a Basic White mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and then to the front of a Soft Sea Foam card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Using the Wreath Builder Dies, I cut one of the wreaths out of a panel of Soft Sea Foam cardstock and one from a panel of Shaded Spruce cardstock. I adhered the 2 wreaths together using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On a strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set in Just Jade Ink. I adhered the sentiment to the back of the wreath using Glue Dots. I adhered the wreath to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the egg image from the Arrange A Wreath stamp set in Balmy Blue, Highland Heather, Petal Pink, Pool Party and So Saffron Inks. I cut all the eggs out using the Wreath Builder Dies. I adhered the eggs to the wreath using Glue Dots. I tied a bow using the Just Jade Gingham Ribbon from the Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack and adhered it to the wreath using Glue dots.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! A Wish For Everything Cling Stamp Set in Just Jade Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the egg image from the Arrange A Wreath stamp set along the bottom of the panel in Petal Pink, Highland Heather and Pool Party Inks. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Just Jade mat using Stampn’ Seal and then to the inside of the Soft Sea Foam card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the egg image from the Arrange A Wreath stamp set in Balmy Blue, Highland Heather and Pool Party Inks across the bottom front of the envelope. I adhered a panel of Soft Sea Foam Subtle 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to the envelope flap.
