Stampin’ Up! Hand-Penned Thank You

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend? Did everyone have a nice Mother’s Day? I ended up not working on Sunday, which was kind of nice.

Today’s card I did very little stamping. I let the DSP to all the work for me. That’s one of the great things about Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Paper, it makes cards all on it’s own.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Hand-Penned Petals Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper. Here is my card for today.

My team leader, Jaimie, is giving us weekly challenges to do. There’s a color challenge and sketch challenge. We could use either of both. This was last weeks challenge and I used both.

I started by adhering a panel of the Hand-Penned DSP to a Highland Heather card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped the sentiment from the Hand-Penned Petals stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Hand-Penned DSP. I adhered the DSP to 2 strips of Mint Macaron cardstock using Stampin’ Seal.

I cut a panel of Highland Heather cardstock using one of the Tasteful Labels Dies. I adhered the Highland Heather banner to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the DSP panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I tied a small bow using the Fresh Freesia 3/8″ Open Weave Ribbon and adhered it using a Glue Dot. I added a few Fresh Freesia 2021-2023 In-Color Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Thanks Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I adhered a strip of the Hand-Penned DSP to the bottom of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Mint Macaron mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Highland Heather card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of the Hand-Penned 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! Butterfly Brilliance Birthday

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers. How has everyone’s week started off? Hope you are all having a productive one.

Today’s card is another card we made at our team meeting on Sunday. This one was designed by our amazing team leader Amy Koenders, I just love her designs. Here is today’s card.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Brilliance Bundle along with the Stampin’ Up! Welcoming Window Photopolymer Stamp Set.

I started by adhering a Butterfly Bijou Designer Series Paper card front to a Basic Black mat using Stampin’ Seal. On a panel of In Good Taste Designer Series Paper I stamped the butterfly images from the Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Brilliance Cling Stamp in Sahara Sand Ink. I adhered the stamped DSP panel to a Basic Black mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the matted panel to the card front using Stampin’ Seal.

I stamped the largest butterfly image from the Butterfly Brilliance stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I cut the image out using my Brilliant Wings Dies. I colored the image in using my Mango Melody and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the butterfly to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Welcoming Window stamp set in Bermuda Bay Ink and cut it out using the Tasteful Labels Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I added a few Blue Adhesive Backed Gems to the card front. I adhered the card front to a Bermuda Bay card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Gala Photopolymer Stamp Set in Bermuda Bay Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I adhered another one of the butterflies from the Butterfly Brilliance stamp that I had cut and colored using my Bermuda Bay and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Basic Black mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Bermuda Bay card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped one of the butterfly images from the Butterfly Brilliance stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the Butterfly Bijou DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Birthdays Brilliant Wings

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend? I was able to attend our quarterly meeting in person. It was only my team leader and myself along with everyone else virtually, but I really enjoyed myself. It was great getting out for a bit with someone other than my co-workers.

Today’s card is one that we made at our team meeting and it was designed by one of my team members and upline Jaimie Babarczy. She always designs simple yet elegant cards. All the cards we made yesterday used the Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Brilliance Collection in one way or another. I’ll be showing my cards throughout the week. Here’s my card for today.

I’m playing along with the Inspire. Create. Challenge #086.

I started by embossing a Terracotta Tile card front using the Tasteful Textiles 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered a panel of True Love Designer Series Paper to a Basic White mat using Stampin’ Seal then adhered the matted panel to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the card front to a Terracotta Tile card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Using my Brilliant Wings Dies, I cut the largest butterfly out of a panel of Butterfly Bijou Designer Series Paper. I adhered the cut DSP to a Basic White mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I cut another one of the same detailed butterflies out of a panel of Basic Black cardstock. I adhered the butterfly over the Butterfly Bijou DSP using Multipurpose Liquid Glue just on the body of the butterfly. I adhered the matted panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Basic Black cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Birthdays Cling Stamp Set in Versamark Ink. I immediately sprinkled it with my White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I cut the sentiment using my Tasteful Labels Dies and adhered it to the card front using a Stampin’ Dimensionals and Glue Dot. I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Moments Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. Remember that butterfly I cut out of the Butterfly Bijou DSP panel? I adhered it below the sentiments using Multipurpose Liquid Glue just on the body. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Basic Black mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Terracotta Tile card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of the Butterfly Bijou DSP to the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the True Love 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. Don’t forget, Terracotta Tile is one of the 2019-2021 In-Colors that will be retiring May 3rd. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Friends Are Like Seashells for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Are you ready for the weekend? I’m actually off this weekend from both my jobs. We do have our ‘In Person’ team meeting virtually this Sunday. I always look forward to the meeting even if we can’t meet up with everyone in person.

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! Friends Are Like Seashells Bundle along with the Sand & Sea Designer Series Paper.

I started by scoring and folded my 5 1/2″ X 11″ card base at 4 1/4″, 7 1/2″ & 10 3/4″. I placed the 1/4″ scored line to the bottom of my Paper Trimmer and the left side of the card base at the 5/8″ mark. I cut from the 4 1/4″ scored line (which is now at the 6 3/4″ mark on your trimmer) all the way down. I cut at the 4 1/4″ scored line down the 5/8″ and removed the strip. On the 1/4″ fold line, using my Paper Snips, I trimmed the small piece off the top so that the 1/4″ fold line measures 4 1/4″. I adhered a strip of Tear & Tape Adhesive on the 1/4″ fold line and adhered the 2 3/4″ X 4 1/4″ panel of Seaside Spray cardstock.

For the front of the card I embossed a panel of Pearlescent Specialty Paper using the Seabed 3D Embossing Folder and I adhered it using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Friends Are Like Seashells Photopolymer Stamp Set in Sahara Sand Ink and cut it out using the Tasteful Labels Dies. I adhered it to the top of the panel using Glue Dots. I stamped the shells and starfish on scraps of the Sand & Sea DSP and cut them out using my Seaside Shells Dies. I stamped the sand dollar on a panel of Basic White cardstock in Sahara Sand Ink and immediately sprinkled it with my Clear Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.

I adhered panels of the Sea & Sand DSP to the inside of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I embossed a panel of the Sand & Sea DSP using the Seabed 3D Embossing Folder for the inside front panel and adhered it using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I stamped the sentiment from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped one of the scallop shells in Blushing Bride Ink on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to the inside panel using Stampin’ Seal.

On the other 2 Basic White panels I stamped the sentiments from the Seaside View stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink. On the larger panel I stamped the sand dollar and starfish images from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink on the bottom. On the center panel I stamped the scallop shell from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Seaside Spray Ink on the bottom. I adhered the panels to the inside of the card base using Stampin’ Seal. I added a few Opal Rounds to the card front and the inside panels.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the sand dollar & star fish from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink. I stamped the scalloped shells in Blushing Bride and Seaside Spray Ink. I adhered a panel of Sand & Sea DSP, which I embossed using the Seabed 3D Embossing Folder, to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. 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 Friend Like You Inside Out card for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Are you ready for the weekend? I’ll be working both days this weekend again. Saturday at the hardware store and Sunday at the dog bakery. Of course it’s suppose to be a beautiful weekend so I’m sure both places will be crazy busy.

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! Friend Like You Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Artistry Blooms Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by adhering a panel of Artistry Blooms DSP to a Night of Navy mat using Stampin’ Seal. I stamped the sentiment from the Friend Like You stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock which I cut using the Tasteful Labels Dies. I stamped the dragonfly image from the Friend Like You stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on the side of the sentiment. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Artistry Blooms Adhesive-Backed Sequins to the card front. I tied a small bow using the 1/8″ Night of Navy ribbon from the Playing With Patterns Ribbon Combo Pack and adhered it to the sentiment using a Glue Dot.

For the card base I scored a 9 1/2″ X 5 1/2″ panel of Thick Basic White cardstock at 4 1/4″, 4 3/4″ and 5 1/4″. I folded the card base in half on the 4 3/4″ score line. I folded the card base back on the 4 1/4″ & 5 1/4″ score lines. I adhered the center together using Tear & Tape.

On one side of the inside (which will be the outside), I adhered a panel of Artistry Blooms DSP using Multipurpose Liquid glue. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from Friend Like You stamp set in Night of Navy Ink in the center of the panel. I stamped the grass image from the Friend Like You stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the dragonfly mage from the Friend Like You stamp set in Night of Navy Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel on top of the Artistry Blooms DSP using Stampin’ Seal.

On the other side of the inside I adhered another panel of Artistry Blooms DSP using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Friend Like You stamp set in Night of Navy Ink. I stamped the palm tree image from the Friend Like You stamp set on the bottom of the panel using Soft Suede and Granny Apple Green Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel on top of the Artistry Blooms DSP using Stampin’ Seal.

Using my Friendly Silhouette Dies and cut 2 of the floral dies from a panel of Basic White cardstock and one of the cattail dies from a panel of Granny Apple Green cardstock. I colored the cattails in using my Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers. I colored the floral dies in using my Bermuda Bay, Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight, Flirty Flamingo, Granny Apple Green, Highland Heather, Poppy Parade and Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the cattail die behind one of the floral dies using Glue Dots. I adhered the floral die to one side of the raised cardstock using Multipurpose Liquid glue. I adhered the double die to the back side of the raised cardstock using Multipurpose Liquid Glue making sure it is facing forward. I added a couple Artistry Blooms Adhesive-Backed Sequins to both of the Basic White panels by the sentiments.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the palm trees and dragonflies images from the Friend Like You on the envelope front in Granny Apple Green, Night of Navy and Soft Suede Inks. I adhered a panel of the Artistry Blooms 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. 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! A Good Man Masculine

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers. How has everyone’s week started off? Ours has started with a HUGE snow storm. I’ve learned not to believe weather forecasts until they happen, I guess they were right this time. I went into work yesterday, even though the store was closed, to get my bills done and caught up on my work. The walk in was bad, but the walk home was horrible. I couldn’t see the snow was coming down so hard and nothing was plowed or shoveled. That was the best workout I’ve ever gotten just walking to and from work. The snow was at my knees at 1pm yesterday when I walked home and it’s still coming down this morning. This makes up for not having any snow last year. I’ll be heading back into work this morning to finish everything up since I had to leave early yesterday.

I have a masculine card for you today. I always seem to struggle with masculine cards, but every once in a while something will pop in my head and I run with it. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! A Good Man Cling Stamp Set for today’s card.

I started by adhering a panel of the Neutrals 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Thick Basic White card base using Stampin’ Seal.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the image from A Good Man stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink and colored it in using my Ivory and Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image out using the oval from the Stitched Shapes Dies. I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Seal.

On the Basic White panel I stamped the sentiment from A Good Man stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink and cut it out using my Tasteful Labels Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I cut the smallest circle from the Layering Circles Dies from a scrap of Crushed Curry cardstock and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I stamped the bird image from the Stampin’ Up! By The Dock Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink and colored it in using my Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the bird out using my Dockside Dies and adhered it to the circle using a Stampin’ Dimensional.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from A Good Man stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I adhered a strip of Neutrals DSP to the bottom of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Night of Navy mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Thick Basic White card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the image from A Good Man stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and colored it in using my Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of Neutrals 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! A Touch Of Ink Thanks

Good Saturday morning my fellow stampers. Is anyone doing anything this weekend? I’ll be working all day today and tomorrow.

For today’s card I used one of the FREE stamp sets available from Sale-A-Bration. The Stampin’ Up! A Touch Of Ink Photopolymer Stamp Set. There are lots of beautiful images and sentiments in this set. This set is available with a qualifying order of $100 or more. Here’s my card for today.

My upline Jaimie Babarczy is doing a challenge for our team this month. Each week she is giving us a sketch and color challenge. I used the colors, but switched the side of the sketch. This was a bit of a challenge for me since those that know me, know Crushed Curry is my least favorite color. Here’s this weeks challenge.

I started by adhering a panel of Playing With Patterns 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Night of Navy mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to a Night of Navy card base using Stampin’ Seal.

I stamped the outline floral image from A Touch Of Ink stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I cut the image out using my Stitched Shapes Dies. I colored the flower in using my Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers and my Crushed Curry Stampin’ Write Marker. I adhered the image to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped the butterfly image from A Touch Of Ink stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on a panel of Crushed Curry cardstock. I fussy cut the butterfly using my Paper Snips. I colored the butterflies body in and a part of the wing using my Night of Navy Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the butterfly to the card front, overlapping the stitched circle, using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment from A Touch Of Ink stamp set on a strip of Basic White cardstock in Night of Navy Ink and cut the sentiment out using my Tasteful Labels Dies. I colored a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels using my Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Marker and added them to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Thanks Photopolymer Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the butterfly image from A Touch Of Ink stamp set in Crushed Curry Ink, stamping off once, over the sentiment. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Crushed Curry mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Night of Navy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the floral image from A Touch Of Ink stamp set on the envelope front in Night of Navy Ink. I colored the image in using my Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers and Crushed Curry Stampin’ Write Marker. I adhered a panel of Playing With Patterns 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! Enjoy The Moment Masculine Birthday

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers. How is everyone doing today? We’re halfway through the week and on our way to the weekend.

I’ve made a masculine card for you today. As most of you know, I have a little trouble with masculine cards. We’ve got a couple new sets in the January – June 2021 Mini Catalog that help me out. Here’s my card for today.

I used the new Stampin’ Up! Enjoy The Moment Cling Stamp Set for today’s card along with In Good Taste Designer Series Paper.

I started by adhering a panel of In Good Taste DSP to a Crumb Cake card base using Stampin’ Seal. On another panel of In Good Taste DSP, I stamped one of the images from the Enjoy The Moment stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink. I stamped the small seed image from Enjoy The Moment stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink, stamping off once, around the stamped image. I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Seal.

On a strip of Crumb Cake cardstock I stamped the whirlybird image from Enjoy The Moment stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink randomly around. I embossed the strip using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder then cut it using my Banner Triple Punch. I wrapped a piece of the Early Espresso 1/4″ Faux Suede Trim around the top of the banner and tied a knot. I adhered the banner to the card front overlapping the artwork, using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Crumb Cake cardstock I stamped the sentiment from Enjoy The Moment stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink. I cut the sentiment out using the Tasteful Labels Dies. I cut the one side straight using my Paper Snips and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from Enjoy The Moment stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the pod image from Enjoy The Moment stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink in the corners of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to an Early Espresso 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 stamped the pod and seed images from Enjoy The Moment stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of In Good Taste 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! Special Someone Valentine

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone’s weekend starting off? I actually have the day off, which is very unusual for a weekend with me. I was able to get my entire house undecorated yesterday except for my tree. My husband will be taking that down today, I can’t touch it since I’m allergic to it. I always hate undecorating and having to pack everything away. The good part is, I’ll be bringing out all my snowmen and winter decorations soon, once I give the house a good cleaning.

For today’s card the owner of where I get my hair done asked me to make her a few Valentine’s cards. She wants one for each of her grandchildren and one for her husband. Here’s the 1st one I made for her granddaughter.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Special Someone Photopolymer Stamp Set for my card.

I started by embossing a panel of Magenta Madness using the Lace 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered a panel of Flowers For Every Season 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to the panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I wrapped a piece of Magenta Madness 1/4″ 2020-2022 In-Color Ribbon around the panel and tied a bow. I adhered the card front to a Magenta Madness card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the outline raccoon image from the Special Someone stamp set in Early Espresso Ink. I stamped the fill image in Sahara Sand Ink over the outline image. I stamped a couple of the butterflies from the Special Someone stamp set in Early Espresso Ink by the raccoon and colored them in using my Bumblebee Stampin’ Write Marker. I cut the racoon out using the Stitched Shapes Dies. On the same panel I stamped the heart balloon outline image from the Special Someone stamp set in Poppy Parade Ink. I stamped the heart balloon fill image over the outline image in Poppy Parade Ink, stamping off once. I stamped the string image in Early Espresso Ink. I cut the balloon and string out using the Special Day Dies. Using the Layering Ovals Dies I cut the scalloped oval from a panel of Poppy Parade cardstock. I adhered the raccoon image to the scalloped oval using Stampin’ Seal and adhered it to the card front over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the balloon to the string using a Glue Dot and adhered it to the raccoon using a Glue Dot. I had cut a tiny bow from a scrap of Poppy Parade using the Special Day Dies and adhered it to the string by the raccoons paws using a Glue Dot.

On a strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Special Someone stamp set in Magenta Madness Ink. I cut the sentiment out using the Tasteful Labels Dies and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Family Party Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Stampin’ Up! A Wish For Everything Cling Stamp Set in Magenta Madness Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the outline balloon image from the Special Someone stamp set in Poppy Parade Ink in 2 of the corners. I stamped the balloon fill image over the outline image in Poppy Parade Ink, stamped off once. I stamped a couple of the butterfly images from the Special Someone stamp set in Early Espresso Ink by the sentiment. I colored the butterflies in using my Bumblebee Stampin’ Write Marker. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Poppy Parade mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Magenta Madness card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the outline raccoon image from the Special Someone stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the envelope front. I stamped the raccoon fill image over the outline image in Sahara Sand Ink. I adhered a panel of the Flowers For Every Season DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Perfectly Plaid Christmas CAS

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends. How has everyone’s week started off? By the time you read this my house will be full of workers and lots of noise being made. I wasn’t expecting them to come this early today, but I guess they want to get a jump on things. Last night we were running around getting the last of anything left around put away and we had to pack our suitcases and laptops to be out of the way first thing. I have my bag packed up with my Paper Pumpkin kits to work on in the hotel room at night. My kitchen is now full of furniture along with the POD outside and we borrowed my neighbors garage too. I’m sure it will all be worth it in the end, but after working later than usual yesterday and coming home and finding out how early they were showing up I’m ready for a nap already. The good news it I will have all brand new floors for the holidays.

With that being said, I have a really quick and easy card for you today. I couldn’t fuss too much with this one. Here’s my card.

I let the Feels Like Frost 6 X 6 Specialty Designer Series Paper do most of the work for me along with the Stampin’ Up! Perfectly Plaid Photopolymer Stamp Set.

I started by adhering a panel of the Feels Like Frost DSP to a Basic Gray mat using Stampin’ Seal and embossed it using the Winter Snow Embossing Folder.

I wrapped a piece of the 1/4″ Snowflake Splendor Ribbon around the card front, adhering it in the back with some Stampin’ Seal, then adhering it to a Basic Gray card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment from the Perfectly Plaid stamp set in Basic Gray Ink on a small panel of Whisper White cardstock and cut it out using the Tasteful Labels Dies.

I adhered the sentiment over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals and added a few Elegant Faceted Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Perfectly Plaid stamp set in Basic Gray Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel. I stamped the tree image from the Perfectly Plaid stamp set in Basic Gray Ink on the bottom of the panel, some stamped in full strength and some stamped off once. I adhered a strip of the Feels Like Frost DSP to the top of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Purple Posy mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Basic Gray card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the tree image from the Perfectly Plaid stamp set in Basic Gray Ink on the envelope front, some stamped full strength and some stamped off. I adhered a panel of the Feels Like Frost DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my quick and easy card and will give it a try. This Feels Like Frost DSP has beautiful life like images that do all the work. Happy Stamping!!
