Stampin’ Up! Paradise Palms Special Moments CAS

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends. Hope your week has started out productive.

I was so happy with my card for today and surprisingly I only used Stamps, Ink and Paper. Back to the basics. I just love playing with the Blending Brushes and mixing colors. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Paradise Palms Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Stampin’ Up! Sale-a-bration Special Moments Photopolymer Stamp Set for my card today.

I started with a Basic White card front. I used Post-It Note Tape and taped off the sides of the panel to make a border. Starting at the bottom using my Blending Brushes I started adding color. I used Daffodil Delight, Mango Melody, Flirty Flamingo, Highland Heather and Misty Moonlight Inks, blending them all as I moved up the panel.

Once I had the colors the way I wanted them I started stamping the palm tree images and the grass image from the Paradise Palms stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I removed the tape from the 4 sides and adhered the card front to a Basic Black mat and then to a Basic White Thick card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Special Moments stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I adhered the sentiment to a Basic Black mat and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Paradise Palms stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the palm tree and grass images from the Paradise Palm stamp set on the bottom of the panel in Tuxedo Black Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Basic Black mat and then to the inside of the Basic White Thick card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic Whtie Medium Envelope. I stamped the grass and palm tree images from the Paradise Palms stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the Sunshine & Rainbows Sale-a-bration 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! Happy Hedgehogs Fun Fold with Video Tutorial

Good Friday morning my stamping friends. Welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Does anyone have plans for the weekend? I’ll be working all day Saturday and have Sunday off.

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! Happy Hedgehogs Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Sunshine & Rainbows 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my card today. This DSP is a FREE Sale-a-bration item with a qualifying $50.

I started by adhering 2 panels of the Sunshine & Rainbows DSP to Bermuda Bay Mats. I adhered the layered panels to the Pool Party card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment, mushroom, bird & hedgehog images from the Happy Hedgehogs stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the images in using my Crumb Cake, Flirty Flamingo, Granny Apple Green, Petal Pink, So Saffron & Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers and my Mango Melody Stampin’ Write Marker. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Bermuda Bay mat and then to the front of the small Pool Party card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I added a few of the Brushed Brass Butterflies to the artwork.

On another panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment, butterfly and hedgehog images from the Happy Hedgehogs stamp set in Tuxedo Balck Ink. I colored the images in using my Bermuda Bay, Crumb Cake, Petal Pink, Pool Party and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Bermuda Bay mat and then to the inside of the small Pool Party card base. I wrapped a piece of Pool Party 3/8″ Sheer Ribbon around the large card base and tied a bow. I adhered the small card base to the small right panel of the large card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the tree image from the Happy Hedgehogs stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I colored the image in using my Flirty Flamingo, Granny Apple Green and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic Whtie panel to a Bermuda Bay mat and then to the inside of the Pool Party card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the 2 hedgehog images from the Happy Hedgehogs stamp set on the envelope front and colored them using my Crumb Cake, Petal Pink and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of Sunshine & Rainbows 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. I hope you will CASE this card and please feel free to post it in the comments of my Facebook page under the post. I’d love to see your take on the card.
