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.

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.

Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers CAS Birthday

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend? Did anyone do anything for Valentine’s Day? I worked all day and came home to my daughter making dinner for us. She made Chicken Parmigiana with a side of Angel Hair and it was delicious.

I have a clean and simple birthday card for you today. Here’s my card.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers Cling Stamp Set for my birthday card.

I started by adhering a panel of Blushing Bride Subtle 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Blushing Bride card base using Stampin’ Seal.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the large sunflower image from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I masked the sunflower and stamped the leaf image from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set around it in Mossy Meadow Ink. To mask an image, you stamp the image on a sticky note and fussy cut it using your Paper Snips. Adhere the sticky note image over the stamped image and stamp the next image overlapping the sticky note. When you remove the sticky note it looks like the leaves are behind the flower. I colored the leave in using my Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blends Markers. Since there isn’t a Bumblebee marker, I applied some ink to a Clear Acrylic Block and used my Water Painters filled with alcohol to color my sunflower. I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampn’ Seal.

On a strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink. Using my Paper Snips I cut the ends of the strip on an angle. I adhered a strip of Bumblebee cardstock, which I cut one end on an angle using my Paper Snips, to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Best Year Cling Stamp Set in Mossy Meadow Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the small sunflower image from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink towards the bottom of the panel. I colored the image in the same as I did for the card front image. I adhered a strip of Subtle DSP to the bottom of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Mossy Meadow mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Blushing Bride card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the large sunflower image from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and colored it in the same as I did for the card front. I adhered a panel of Subtle DSP 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! Oh Snap Sneak Peek

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s Christmas? I had a very quiet one this year, it was just my husband, daughter and I at home. We usually have all the family over for Christmas Eve, but with everything going on right now, I felt better with no one coming over. I hope you were all able to spend some time with loved ones in one way or another. Was Santa good to all of you? Maybe some new stamp sets or DSP.

I have a sneak peek for you of an upcoming set from the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog. I saw this set and my little nephew loves alligators and crocodiles so I just had to get it. It’s the Stampin’ Up! Oh Snap Photopolymer Stamp Set. Here’s my card for today.

My colors are from the Fab Friday Challenge #204. Here are their colors.

I played along with Crazy 4 Challenges #565 using sketch #518. Here is their challenge.

I started by stamping the crocodile, fish and frog images from the Oh Snap stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock. I stamped the leaf image from the Oh Snap stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on the bottom of the panel. I colored the images in using my Poppy Parade & Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends Markers and my Blushing Bride and Pear Pizzazz Stampin’ Write Markers.

I stamped the sentiments from the Oh Snap stamp set in Seaside Spray Ink on the panel on top and center of the crocodile.

I adhered a panel of Pear Pizzazz Subtle 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Pear Pizzazz card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I cut the smallest circle from the Layering Circles Dies out of a scrap of Poppy Parade cardstock and adhered it in the top corner of the card front using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and added a piece of the Seaside Spray 1/4″ Metallic Ribbon to the right side using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the crocodile and fish images from the Oh Snap stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a Whisper White panel. I stamped the sentiments from the Oh Snap stamp set in Seaside Spray Ink on the panel. I colored the images in using my Poppy Parade and Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Poppy Parade mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Pear Pizzazz card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. Since I am hand delivering the card I stamped the whole crocodile image from the Oh Snap stamp set on the front of the envelope along with the fish image. I colored the images in using my Poppy Parade and Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of the Subtle DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today, I hope you like my card. The stamp set I used will be available on January 5, 2021 from the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog. If you need a demonstrator and would like a copy of the catalog, drop me a line at creativestampingdesigns@gmail.com and I will get one out to you. Happy Stamping!!

WHISPER WHITE CARDSTOCK PRODUCTS- AVAILABLE WHILE SUPPLIES LAST

Stampin’ Up! announced this information related to the Whisper White paper products late last evening:

Whisper White has been a Stampin’ Up! staple for so long. We love it and we know you love it, too. We are sad to announce that the supplier’s mill producing our Whisper White cardstock has permanently closed due to impacts from the COVID-19 pandemic. Unfortunately, we weren’t given much notice on this closure. This means that the technology unique to this particular supplier is now unavailable to us and we can no longer offer our Whisper White cardstock and related products, such as Whisper White Note Cards & Envelopes. Please note that this won’t affect any of our other cardstocks, this only affects Whisper White.

We know Whisper White has a huge fan base; we’re big fans, too! And we are crushed that it’s going away. Even though this decision was out of our hands, rest assured that we jumped right into action to find the best replacement paper possible. We have dedicated many hours to source and test alternative cardstock options from several suppliers to find the perfect fit that still maintains the Stampin’ Up! quality you know and trust. We are happy to share that we have found a winner for our new cardstock, Basic White!

The quality of our new Basic White was thoroughly tested by our quality assurance and product teams. It also tested very well with demonstrators and concept artists who gave it a huge thumbs up. We believe in the quality of the new Basic White cardstock and we know it will become your new crafting staple!

What does this mean for you?

With Whisper White going out of production, this means a number of Whisper White products will be affected. Below is a list of all products that will be replaced with our new Basic White cardstock. These items are now available while supplies last with an order limit of 2 per item per order.

  • Whisper White 12″ x 12″ (30.5 x 30.5 cm) Cardstock (124302)
  • Assorted Memories & More Cards & Envelopes (149710)
  • Whisper White Note Cards & Envelopes (131527)
  • Whisper White 3″ x 3″ (7.6 x 7.6 cm) Envelopes (145829)
  • Whisper White 8-1/2″ x 11″ Cardstock (100730)
  • Whisper White 8-1/2″ x 11″ Thick Cardstock (140272)
  • Whisper White Medium Envelopes (107301)

Our new Basic White products will become available to purchase as soon as we have them in stock. This means that some Whisper White and Basic White products may be available at the same time. Additionally, due to the nature of sourcing, some Basic White products may not be available before the Whisper White products sell out. Please know that we are working on getting these products available to you as fast as possible.

Stampin’ Up! Special Someone for Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends.  How is everyone doing today?  Welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we had a Sketch Challenge. Be sure to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects .
Here is the sketch we had to work from.

Here’s my card using this sketch.

My colors were inspired by Global Design Project Challenge #237.  Here are their colors.

I also played along with Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge #337.  Here is their Inspiration.

I started by adhering a panel of Mint Macaron Subtle 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Mint Macaron card base using Snail.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the racoon image from the Stampin’ Up! Special Someone Photopolymer Stamp Set first in Early Espresso for the outline then in Soft Suede for the fill color.  I stamped 2 round balloons and one heart balloon from the Special Someone stamp set on the same panel.  I stamped the round balloons first in Mint Macaron and Night of Navy for the outlines.  I then stamped the fill color in Mint Macaron and Night of Navy, stamping off once.  I did the same for the heart balloon, stamped the outline in Melon Mambo and the fill color in Melon Mambo stamping off once.  I cut the images out using the Special Day Dies and I also cut out the balloon strings and the bow.

I embossed a Melon Mambo panel using the Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the embossed panel to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the racoon to the embossed panel using Stampin Dimensionals.  I adhered the balloon strings to the racoon using a Glue Dot and the bow to the strings using a tiny drop of Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the balloons to the top of the strings on the embossed panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  On a strip of Night of Navy cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Special Someone stamp set in Versamark Ink.  I immediately sprinkled it with my White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I adhered the sentiment strip to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a couple Melon Mango Glitter Enamel Dots to the sentiment strip.  I added a couple Night of Navy Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots to the card front and one to the center of the bow.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Special Someone stamp set in Night of Navy Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the racoon image from the Special Someone stamp set on the bottom of the panel, first in Early Espresso Ink for the outline then in Soft Suede Ink for the fill color.  I stamped the mouse image from the Special Someone stamp set on the bottom of the panel.  I stamped the outline image in Basic Gray Ink and the fill image in Smoky Slate Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Night of Navy mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Mint Macaron card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the racoon image from the Special Someone stamp set on the bottom front of the envelope.  I stamped the outline image in Early Espresso Ink and the fill image in Soft Suede Ink.  I stamped the balloon string image from the Special Someone stamp set in Night of Navy Ink.  I stamped the balloon image from the Special Someone stamp set first the outline image in Mint Macaron Ink and the fill image in Mint Macaron Ink, stamping off once.  I adhered a panel of the Melon Mambo Brights 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to the envelope flap.

Thank you for visiting my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Now that you’ve seen my card, take a minute to hop through all our projects today.

Stampin’ Up! Over The Moon

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends.  How has everyone’s week started off?

For today’s card I pulled out a stamp set from the Annual Catalog and used some new items too.  With all the new items from the new Mini Catalog, we sometimes forget about the awesome stamps that are in the Annual Catalog.  Here’s my card.

My card played along with the Just Add Ink Challenge #492.  Here is their sketch.

I also played along with Always Fun Challenge #150.  Theirs is a Theme challenge.  Their Theme is ‘Animals’

I started by adhering a panel of Highland Heather Subtle 6X6 Designer Series Paper to the Thick Whisper White card base using Snail.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the cow image from the Stampin’ Up! Over The Moon Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the image in using my Light Basic Black, Highland Heather, Light Smoky Slate, So Saffron and Soft Seafoam Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the image out using my Layering Ovals Dies.  I cut the scallop oval from the Layering Ovals Dies that was 2X larger than my artwork from a Soft Seafoam cardstock panel.  I embossed the scalloped oval using my Stone 3D Embossing Folder.  This folder is a Sale-A-Bration item which comes with a stamp set.  I adhered the artwork to the scalloped oval using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a thin strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Over The Moon stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I cut the strip into a banner using my Paper Snips.  I adhered the sentiment to a Soft Seafoam strip, which I made a banner out of, using Snail. I adhered the sentiment across the artwork using Stampin’ Dimensionals on the ends.  On a strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped 2 of the flower images from the Stampin’ Up! Thoughtful Blooms Photopolymer Stamp Set in So Saffron Ink.  I punched the flowers out using the Small Bloom  Punch.  The stamp set and punch are 2 more items you can get with a qualifying order from Sale-A-Bration.  I adhered the flowers together using a Glue Dot and adhered them to the banner using a dot of Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I added a Rhinestone Basic Jewel to the center of the flower.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Over The Moon stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of the Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Moments Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink under the 1st one.  I stamped another cow image from the Over The Moon stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the bottom of the Whisper White panel.  I colored the cow I using my Light Basic Black and Light Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Highland Heather mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I added a couple Rhinestone Basic Jewels to either side of the sentiment.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the cow image from the Over The Moon stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front.  I colored the image in using my Light Basic Black, Highland Heather, Light Smoky Slate and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a Highland Heather panel of the Subtle 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. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Positive Thoughts Birthday

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s weekend?  It was cold here on Saturday.   When I walked to work in the morning it was only 11degrees out.  Other than the cold it was a sunny weekend, which was a nice change.

For today I have a Clean & Simple card for you that uses very little products.  Here’s my card.

My card joined in with Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #422.  Here is their sketch.

My colors were inspired by Color Throwdown Challenge #580.  Here are their colors.

I also played along with Water Cooler Wednesday Challenge #258.  Here is their theme.

I started by adhering a panel of Highland Heather Subtle 6″ X 6″ Designer Series Paper to a Highland Heather mat using Snail.  I adhered the matted panel to a Smoky Slate card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the fern image from the Stampin’ Up! Positive Thoughts Cling Stamp Set in Pear Pizzazz Ink 3 times without re-inking the stamp.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Moments Cling Stamp Set in Smoky Slate Ink on the top of the panel.  I adhered the artwork to a Highland Heather mat using Snail.  I adhered the matted artwork to the Smoky Slate card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I wrapped a piece of Whisper White Solid Bakers Twine around the card front and tied a small bow.  I added a Glue Dot under the bow to keep it in place.  I adhered the card front to a Smoky Slate card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Peaceful Moments stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the fern image from the Positive Thoughts stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on either side of the panel 3 times without re-inking the stamp.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Highland Heather mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Smoky Slate card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the fern image from the Positive Thoughts stamp set on the bottom of the envelope front in Pear Pizzazz Ink.  I stamped it 3 times on each side with out re-inking the stamp.  I adhered a panel of Highland Heather Subtle 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. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up Animal Outings for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday.  The weekend is here already, has anyone had a chance to make plans?  I feel like the weekend snuck up very quickly.  Gotta love these 4 day weeks.

For today’s card I was asked to make a baby shower card for a friend.  I had to put my thinking cap on for a bit to come up with an idea.  I don’t really have any ‘baby’ stamp sets, but then I remembered the one set that I have that would be perfect.  I made a ‘Z-Fold’ card for you, but my measurements are a little different than normal.  Here’s my card.

My card was able to join in with a few challenges today.  First off I played along with Global Design Project Color Challenge #205.  I thought these colors were perfect for a baby shower card (mom to be knows it’s a girl).  Here are their colors.

Next I played along with Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #332.  With a little work I made this work as a fun fold.  Here is their sketch.

I also joined in with Watercooler Wednesday Challenge #237.  They have a theme challenge and I thought how much more feminine could a baby shower card be.  Here is their challenge.

I started by stamping the momma kangaroo image from the Stampin’ Up Animal Outing Cling Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink on a small panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I colored the image in using my Rococo Rose and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the image out using my Animal Friends Dies.  I cut out a stitched square from Rococo Rose cardstock using the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I cut out a scalloped square from So Saffron cardstock using my Layering Squares Dies.  I adhered the stitched square to the scalloped square using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the kangaroo to the square using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered a strip of Rococo Rose card stock to the folded edge using Snail.  I adhered the artwork to the folded edge using Stampin’ Dimensionals only on one half.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Itty Bitty Greetings Cling Stamp Set in Rococo Rose Ink on a thin strip of Whisper White cardstock.  I punched the sentiment out using the Classic Label Punch and I cut the one edge straight using my Paper Snips.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using a Glue Dot and Mini Stampin’ Dimensional.  I attached a small bow made from Whisper White Solid Bakers Twine with a Glue Dot.

I wrapped a piece of the Rococo Rose 1/2″ Scalloped Linen Ribbon around the left side of the card.

On the inside I adhered a panel of the Mint Macaron Gingham from the Subtle 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper using Snail.  I adhered a Whisper White panel to a Rococo Rose mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Mint Macaron card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I did not stamp a sentiment on the inside because my friend wants to write something herself.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the kangaroo image from the Animal Outing stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the envelope front.  I colored the image in using my Rococo Rose and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of So Saffron Gingham from the Subtle 6 X 6 DSP on 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!!
