Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers Birthday

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone doing today? We’re halfway through the week and the weekend is right around the corner.

It’s time for another inspiration challenge for The Card Concepts. The inspiration photo is Sunny Sunflowers. Here is my card that was inspired from the challenge photo.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers Cling Stamp Set for my Free Style Collage Card. I was inspired by the beautiful sunflower bouquet and the colors.

I hope you will take a moment to visit The Card Concepts and join us for our challenge #160.  How are you inspired by this photo?

I started by embossing a Smoky Slate card front using the Timber 3D Embossing Folder. Using my Blending Brush, I brushed a little Smoky Slate Ink over the embossed panel to give it a little color. I adhered the card front to a Smoky Slate card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the small sunflower image from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the images in using my Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green, Just Jade, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, Soft Succulent, Soft Suede and So Saffron Stampn’ Blends Markers. I cut the images out using my Sunflower Dies. I cut 5 of the sprig dies using the Sunflower Dies from a panel of Pear Pizzazz cardstock. I cut the large leaf die from the Beautiful Leaves Dies from a panel of Garden Green cardstock.

I adhered the large Garden Green leaf to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I arranged the sunflowers the way I wanted them and adhered them with Multipurpose Liquid Glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the sprigs under the sunflowers using Multipurpose Liquid Glue on the stems only. I made a triple loop bow using the Black & White 1/4″ Gingham Ribbon and adhered it to the center of the sunflowers using a Glue Dot. I stamped the sentiment from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock and fussy cut it using my Paper Snips. I adhered it to the bottom of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few 2021-2023 In-Color Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Sunny Sentiments Cling Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the small sunflower image from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink in 2 of the corners of the panel and colored them in the same as I did for the card front. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Garden Green mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Smoky Slate card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the small sunflower image from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set on the envelope front and flap in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the sunflowers in the same as I did for the card.

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

Stampin’ Up! Biggest Wish CAS Card

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends. Welcome to the weekend, hope you have something fun planned.

Today’s card is a CAS card we made at our class Tuesday night. I like to start my classes with an easy one and work out way up. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Biggest Wish Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Pattern Party Host Designer Series Paper. This paper is available to anyone placing an order over $150 where you can earn Stampin’ Rewards from Stampin’ Up! You can see this paper and other stamp sets that are Host Exclusive on page 170 & 171 of the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog. If you’d like to see if you can get some friends together to place an order to earn this paper, I’d be happy to help you out and put together a Host Code for you. Send me a note to creativestampingdesigns@gmail.com and we can talk about it.

I started by adhering a panel of the Pattern Party Host DSP to a Real Red mat using Stampin’ Seal.

I embossed a panel of Real Red cardstock using the Thanks & Hello Embossing Folder. I adhered the panel of the layered panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue on an angle. I trimmed the excess using my Paper Snips. I wrapped a piece of White Bakers Twine from the Bakers Twine Essential Pack around the card front twice and tied a bow. I adhered the card front to a Basic Black card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a scrap of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Biggest Wish stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I fussy cut the sentiment using my Paper Snips. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Sunny Sentiments Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I adhered a strip of the Pattern Party Host DSP to the bottom of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Real Red mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Basic Black card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I added a couple more Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the inside of the card.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of the Pattern Party Host DSP to the envelope front and a panel 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! Biggest Wish Hello Friend

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends. Hope you have some fun plans for this weekend. Maybe a picnic, some fireworks. Whatever you have plans, have fun and stay safe.

Today’s card is a pretty simple one that I let the DSP do most the work and I played with my Stamparatus. I think we might be making this card at next week’s class. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Biggest Wish Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Expressions In Ink Specialty Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by adhering a panel of Expressions In Ink DSP to a Gold Foil Sheet mat using Stampin’ Seal.

I stamped the sentiment from the Biggest Wish stamp set in Polished Pink Ink on the card front 3 times using my Stamparatus to get placement exact. I stamped the ‘friend’ sentiment over the last ‘hello’ in Versamark Ink. I immediately sprinkled it with my Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.

I cut a panel of Just Jade cardstock with the leaf die from the Artistic Dies and adhered it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I wrapped a piece of 1/2″ White Faux Linen Ribbon from the Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack, around the layered panel and tied a knot. I adhered the card front to a Polished Pink card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Sunny Sentiments Cling Stamp Set in Just Jade Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the small flower image from the Artistically Inked stamp set in Polished Pink Ink on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the leaf images from the Artistically Inked stamp set in Just Jade Ink around the flower image. I adhered the Basie White panel to a Just Jade mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Polished Pink card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the smaller flower image from the Artistically Inked stamp set in Polished Pink Ink on the envelope front. I stamped the leaves from the Artistically Inked stamp set in Just Jade Ink around the flowers. I adhered a panel of the Expressions In Ink 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! Spiral Dye Biggest Wish

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone’s weekend going? Do you have plans for Father’s Day. My husband finally told my daughter what he would like for dinner. I’m not sure if she’s making him a dessert or not.

Today’s card I have a pretty simple one for you playing with a new stamp from the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Spiral Dye Cling Stamp and the Stampin’ Up! Biggest Wish Photopolymer Stamp Set for todays card.

My colors are from the Color Throwdown Challenge #647.

I started by stamping the spiral image from the Spiral Dye stamp in Granny Apple Green Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock, stamping off once. I used my Stamparatus so that placement for the next color would be easy.

I turned the cardstock 180` placing it exactly where it was and stamped the spiral image in Polished Pink, stamping off once, over the Granny Apple Green. I cut the cardstock down to a 4″ x 5 1/4″ panel using my Trimmer. I adhered the panel to a Polished Pink mat using Stampin’ Seal.

On a small panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the ‘Happy’ sentiment from the Biggest Wish stamp set in Polished Pink Ink. I stamped the ‘birthday’ sentiment from the Biggest Wish stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink over the Polished Pink image. I cut the sentiment out using my Tailor Made Tags Dies. I cut the small reinforcers out of a scrap of Polished Pink card stock using my Tailor Made Tags Dies and adhered them to the tag using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I wrapped a piece of Linen Thread around the matted panel twice, threaded it through the hole on the tag and tied a bow. I adhered the tag to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the tag. I adhered the card front to a Crumb Cake card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the spiral image from the Spiral Dye stamp in Polished Pink Ink, stamping off once, to a Basic White panel. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Sunny Sentiments Cling Stamp Set in Granny Apple Green Ink over the spiral image. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Polished Pink mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Crumb Cake card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of the Polished Pink 2021-2023 In-Color Designer Series Paper to the envelope front and a panel 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!!

Changes To The Upcoming July-December Mini Catalog And Second Sale-a-bration


Stampin’ Up! has shared the following update with us related to the upcoming July-December Mini Catalog and second Sale-a-bration this year.  With the global shipping delays, they will be moving the start dates for those two publications back by one month.  Here are the details from Stampin’ Up!:

We’ve recently been made aware that, due to the current global shipping crisis tied to the COVID pandemic, we are not likely to receive the majority of product inventory for the upcoming July–December 2021 Mini Catalog or July–August 2021 Sale-A-Bration in time for the catalog launches. After careful consideration we have decided to push the launches of both publications back by one month to allow time for inventory to be received.
 
Change Details

The first Stampin’ Up! value statement is this: we care about people first. What does that look like? Caring about people first means treating others with kindness, respect, and equal consideration. It means working together towards a common goal, helping each other through life’s challenges, and celebrating one another’s accomplishments. It means including others, even when we disagree, have contrasting life experiences, or simply see things differently. Caring about people first is our greatest strength!

In honor of this value—and in the spirit of World Diversity Day—we’d like to celebrate what makes us unique through what brings us together: creativity! The United Through Creativity Digital Download features inclusive, multicultural, and multilingual sentiments and illustrations that represent the multiple markets Stampin’ Up! engages with. And, it’s FREE for all!

We hope you’ll join us in celebrating our one-of-a-kind community through the unifying force of creativity!

Stampin’ Up! Daisy Garden Sunny Sentiment

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends. I hope you have some fun plans for the weekend.

I have a quick card for you today using the new Stampin’ Up! Daisy Garden Cling Stamp Set and the Stampin’ Up! Sunny Sentiments Cling Stamp Set. Here’s my card for today.

My colors are from The Spot Challenge #161.

I started by stamping the large daisy image from the Daisy Garden stamp set on a panel of Basic White cardstock in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image in using my Granny Apple Green, Magenta Madness and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the panel using my Stitched Rectangle Dies.

I adhered the cut panel to a Fresh Freesia mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to a Basic Black mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the matted card front to a Fresh Freesia card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Sunny Sentiments stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I cut the image out using the Ornate Frames Dies and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few of the Magenta Madness 2020-2022 In-Color Square Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Sunny Sentiments stamp set in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the daisy image from the Daisy Garden stamp set on the bottom corner of the panel and colored it in using my Granny Apple Green, Magenta Madness and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Basic Black mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Fresh Freesia card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the daisy image from the Daisy Garden stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom front of the envelope and the envelope flap. I colored the images in using my Granny Apple Green, Magenta Madness and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers.

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