Stampin’ Up! Christmas Season to Remember CAS

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone’s weekend going? Has anyone started decorating yet? Have you started your holiday shopping? I’ve got a little of my decorating done and I got my baking shopping done. I also have quite a few gifts already, but I still have more to do.

Today’s card is another one that I stamped via zoom with my upline Jaimie last week. She designed a couple cards and we stamped together. It was really a lot of fun and I love her designs. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Christmas Season Bundle and the Stampin’ Up! Christmas To Remember Cling Stamp Set along with the Tidings of Christmas 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by adhering a panel of the Tidings of Christmas DSP to an Evening Evergreen card base.

On a panel of Evening Evergreen cardstock I stamped the leaf image from the Stampin’ Up! Christmas Season Photopolymer Stamp Set in Evening Evergreen Ink. I embossed the panel using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to the card front.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the holly leaves from the Christmas Season stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink and the berries in Cherry Cobbler Ink. I cut the holly and berries out using my Seasonal Labels Dies. I stamped the sentiment from the Christmas to Remember stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock and cut it our using my Seasonal Labels Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the holly and berries above the sentiment using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Evening Evergreen 2021-2023 In-Color Jewels to the sentiment.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Christmas to Remember stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the leaf image from the Christmas Season stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink on the top of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat and then to the inside of the Evening Evergreen card base.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the leaf image from the Christmas Season stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink on the top of the envelope front. I adhered a strip of the Tidings of Christmas DSP to the bottom of 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! Christmas to Remember Tidings

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone doing today? Only 2 more days until Turkey day and the official start of the Christmas season, YIKES!! Before you know it we’ll be saying Happy New Year.

Today’s card I made with my upline Jaimie on a zoom call last week. During our last Sale-a-bration in August she had a little challenge to ‘Go For The Gold’. Anyone who signed on a demonstrator, she was going to have a little celebration. I signed on someone new so we had zoom lunch together and stamped some cards together. I really had a lot of fun spending some time with her. The only thing that would have made it better was to be sitting with her in person and stamping. Today I’m sharing one of the cards we made together.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Christmas To Remember Cling Stamp Set along with the Tiding of Christmas 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by embossing a Sahara Sand card front using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to a Sahara Sand card base.

I adhered 4 strips of the Tidings of Christmas DSP to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I cut the solid star using the Christmas Trimmings Dies from a panel of Cherry Cobbler cardstock. I cut the detailed star die using the Christmas Trimmings Dies from a panel of Basic White cardstock. I adhered the detailed die to the Cherry Cobbler die using tiny amount of Multipurpose Liquid Glue and adhered the layered star to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Christmas To Remember stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink. I cut the sentiment out using the Seasonal Labels Dies and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I tied a small bow using the Evening Evergreen 3/8″ Open Weave Ribbon and adhered it to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Tidings & Trimmings Photopolymer Stamp Set in Cherry Cobbler Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the star image from the Tidings & Trimmings stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink by the sentiment. I adhered a strip of the Tidings of Christmas DSP to the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to an Evening Evergreen mat and then to the inside of the Sahara Sand card base.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of Tidings of Christmas 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! Happy Holly-Days for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew 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 beautiful 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 “Merry Christmas/Happy Holidays”.  We can interpret this however we want.  Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Happy Holly-Days Stamp Set along with the Whimsy & Wonder Specialty Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by embossing a Mint Macaron card front using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the embossed panel to a Mint Macaron card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered 2 panels of the Whimsy & Wonder DSP to Mint Macaron mats. I adhered one panel of the Whimsy & Wonder DSP to a Polished Pink mat. I adhered the longer layered panel to the top of the larger rectangle layered panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the Polished Pink layered panel to the top of the multi-layered panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the bird and holly images from the Happy Holly-Days stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the images in using my Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Mint Macaron, Pale Papaya and Polished Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers. I fussy cut the images using my Paper Snips. Using my Layering Circles Dies I cut a solid circle and coordinating scalloped circle from a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the sentiment from the Happy Holly-Days stamp set on the solid circle in Mint Macaron Ink and embossed the circle using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the circles together using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the bird image and holly image to the circle using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I wrapped a piece of the Silver Simply Elegant Trim around the multi-layered panel and tied a bow. I adhered the multi-layered panel to the embossed card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Happy Holly-Days stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the holly image from the Happy Holly-Days stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on either side of the sentiment and colored them in using my Mint Macaron and Polished Pink 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 White Medium Envelope. I stamped the holly image from the Happy Holly-Days stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and colored it in the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of the Whimsy & Wonder 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. Don’t forget to stop back tomorrow for my 3rd card using the Whimsy & Wonder DSP.

Stampin’ Up! Happy Holly-Days

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends. How has everyone’s weekend started off? I’ll be at work all day today, but surprisingly I have off tomorrow. Looking forward to a day off.

If you saw my Facebook live on Wednesday you saw that I stamped and cut out 2 different holly leaves. I had embossed 1 with Silver Embossing Powder and stamped the other with Tuxedo Black Ink. I asked those that were watching which one I should use. The majority picked the silver, but I had the black one and wanted to use it. So, today’s card is another version of yesterday’s.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Happy Holly-Days Cling Stamp Set along with my Blending Brushes for my card today.

I started by using my Blending Brushes and my Balmy Blue and Daffodil Delight Inks and colored a Basic White card front. I adhered the panel to a Thick Basic White card front.

I cut a panel of Basic White cardstock using my Basic Borders Dies. I stamped the sentiment from the Happy Holly-Days stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink on the bottom of the cut panel. I embossed the panel using my Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the bird and holly images from the Happy Holly-Days stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the images in using my Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Mossy Meadow and Polished Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers. I fussy cut the images using my Paper Snips and adhered them to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Happy Holly-Days stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink and the holly in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the holly in using my Mossy Meadow and Polished Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to the inside of the Thick Basic White card base.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the bird and holly images from the Happy Holly-Days stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and envelope flap and colored them in the same as I did for the card.

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

Stampin’ Up! Joyful Life CAS

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. How is your weekend going? Is anyone doing anything adventurous and fun?

I used another one of my favorite sets today for a CAS card. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Joyful Life Cling Stamp Set along with the Brights 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper and the Regals 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my card today.

My colors are from CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge #440.

My design is from Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #506.

I started by embossing a Basic White card front using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered 2 strips of the Brights DSP in Poppy Parade and Pacific Point and 1 strip of the Garden Green Regals DSP to the card front on an angle. I adhered the card front to a Thick Basic White card base.

Using my Layering Circle Dies I cut the 3rd largest circle and the coordinating scallop circle from a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the image from the Joyful Life stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the circle. I colored the image in using my Crumb Cake, Ivory, Poppy Parade and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers and my Garden Green Stampin’ Write Marker. On a scrap of the Pacific Point Brights DSP I stamped the same image from the Joyful Life stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink and fussy cut the apron out using my Paper Snips and adhered it to the stamped image. I adhered the circle to the scalloped circle and then to the card front.

On a scrap of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Joyful Life stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink and fussy cut it using my Paper Snips. I adhered the sentiment to the top of 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 2 strips of the Garden Green Regals DSP to the corners of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Garden Green mat and then to the inside of the Thick Basic White card base.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of the Brights 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! Pretty Pumpkins

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 Harvest Adventures.  This was one of the first layered designs I made when I first started making cards 16+ years ago and I still love it. Here is my card that was inspired from the challenge photo.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Pretty Pumpkins Cling Stamp Set along with the Harvest Meadow Designer Series Paper for my Clean and Layered card. I was inspired by the colors, pumpkins and the baskets for my card.

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 an Old Olive card front using the Checks & Dots Embossing Folder. I adhered the panel to the front of an Old Olive card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered a panel of Harvest Meadow DSP to a Cajun Craze mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to a Sahara Sand mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the trio pumpkin image from the Pretty Pumpkins stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I stamped the sentiment from the Pretty Pumpkins stamp set above the image in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image in using my Cajun Craze, Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive and Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends Markers. I embossed the panel using my Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the artwork to a Cajun Craze mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and then to a Sahara Sand mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Pumpkin Pie Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Pretty Pumpkins stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the pumpkin vine image from the Pretty Pumpkins stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom of the panel and colored it in using my Daffodil Delight and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Cajun Craze mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to a Sahara Sand mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to the inside of the Old Olive card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the trio of pumpkins image from the Pretty Pumpkins stamp set on the envelope front in Tuxedo Black Ink and colored them in the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of Harvest Meadow 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! Nature’s Harvest CAS

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend? It was a gorgeous fall weekend here, unfortunately I spent most of it inside working.

I used another one of my favorite sets from the July-December 2021 Mini Catalog for my card today. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Harvest Bundle along with the Blackberry Beauty Specialty Designer Series Paper for my card today.

My colors are from TGIF Challenge #336.

My design today is from Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #505.

I started by adhering a panel of Blackberry Beauty DSP to a Thick Very Vanilla card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Using my Layering Circles Dies, I cut 2 circles the same size, 1 in Basic Black cardstock and 1 in Blackberry Bliss cardstock. I embossed the Basic Black circle using my Stitched Greenery Die and I embossed the Blackberry Bliss circle using my Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered them to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the small floral image from the Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Harvest Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink and cut the image out using my Harvest Dies. I adhered the floral image to the Blackberry Bliss circle using Stampin’ Dimensionals. On a strip of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Nature’s Harvest stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink and cut it out using my Harvest Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the card front over the circles using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Elegant Faceted Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Through It Together Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Very Vanilla panel. I stamped the small floral image from the Nature’s Harvest stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom of the panel twice. I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Blackberry Bliss mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Thick Very Vanilla card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To finish my card I decorated a Very Vanilla Medium Envelope. I stamped the small floral image from the Nature’s Harvest stamp set on the envelope front twice in Tuxedo Black Ink. I adhered a panel of Blackberry Beauty 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! Whimsical Trees Christmas

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend? I hope you were able to do something fun.

I have a quick Christmas card for you today. I used this design for my class last week, but they used the other side of the DSP and a different stamp set. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Whimsical Trees Bundle along with the Tidings of Christmas 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by adhering 4 strips of the Tidings of Christmas DSP to a Sahara Sand card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered 2 on the top and 2 on the bottom.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Whimsical Trees Cling Stamp Set in Evening Evergreen Ink on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the ornament image from the Whimsical Trees stamp set on the top of the panel in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the ornaments in using my Cherry Cobbler, Smoky Slate and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends Markers. I embossed the panel using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder.

I wrapped a length of the Evening Evergreen 3/8″ Chevron Weave Ribbon around the top of the panel and adhered it on the back using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the panel to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On a small panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the holly and berry image from the Whimsical Trees stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the images in using my Cherry Cobbler and Evening Evergreen Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the images out using my Christmas Trees Dies and adhered them to the top of the ornaments using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Whimsical Trees stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the ornament image from the Whimsical Trees stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink 3 times across the top of the panel. I colored the images in using my Cherry Cobbler, Smoky Slate and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to an Evening Evergreen mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Sahara Sand card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the ornament image from the Whimsical Trees stamp set on the center top of the envelope front and colored it the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of the Tidings of Christmas 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! Counting Sheep Sliding Gate Fold for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday the 13th morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. Is anyone superstitious out there? I’m not. My daughter and I along with my nephew, niece and her 2 boys, spent all day yesterday on the beach. I took the day off from my daily life and went and sat, walked swam and jumped waves for 8 hours yesterday. It was AMAZING. We had such a beautiful HOT day, but on the beach you don’t even feel the heat, especially when your in the water as much as we were. The sunburn today is telling me a little different. How was everyone’s week? Does anyone have any plans for the weekend yet? I’ll be working all day Saturday and attending my virtual team meeting on Sunday. We have a lot of fun even at our virtual meetings.

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 were able to watch me, you were able to see what not to do when making this card. Luckily I was able to fix it without having to redo too much. 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! Counting Sheep Cling Stamp Set along with the Sheep Dies for my card today. I also used the Stampin’ Up! In Your Words Cling Stamp Set for the sentiments. All 3 of these items are from the August-September Sale-a-bration Catalog and are free with qualifying orders.

I started by adhering 2 panels of Pattern Party Host Designer Series Paper to Basic White mats using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered the 2 layered panels to the front of a Bermuda Bay card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

For the sliding mechanism I started by cutting a Bermuda Bay panel with the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. I adhered a small panel of the Basic White cardstock to the back of the scalloped rectangle using Stampin’ Seal. I scored 2 of the Basic White panels and folded them in half. I adhered the 2 folded panels folded edge in on the back of the scalloped rectangle. I adhered another one of the small Basic White panels on top of the folded panels using Stampn’ Seal. On the last small Basic White panel I stamped the grass image from the Counting Sheep stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the sentiment from the In Your Words stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the top of the panel. I cut a panel of In Good Taste Designer Series Paper using the fence die from the Sheep Dies and adhered it to the Basic White panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sheep image from the Counting Sheep stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image in using my Petal Pink and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers. I removed some of the ink using my Color Lifter to lighten the color. I cut the sheep out using my Sheep Dies and embossed the sheep using my Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder. I stamped the party hat image from the Counting Sheep stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink and cut the image out using my Sheep Die. I colored the hat in using my Bermuda Bay, Granny Apple Green, Poppy Parade and Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the hat to the sheep using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the sheep to the Basic White panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I cut the balloon from a scrap of Pumpkin Pie cardstock and adhered it to the sheep. I adhered the artwork to the scalloped rectangle using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I added a few Artistry Bloom Adhesive-Backed Sequins to the artwork

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the In Your Words stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the sheep image from the Counting Sheep stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink and colored the image in using my Petal Pink and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the grass image below the sheep in Granny Apple Green Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Pumpkin Pie 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 the sheep image from the Counting Sheep stamp set on the envelope front and colored it in using my Petal Pink and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the grass image from the Counting Sheep stamp set below the sheep in Granny Apple Green Ink. I adhered a panel of Pattern Party Hose DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Delivering Cheer Celebrate Together CAS

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone’s weekend going? Our weather man got it wrong again. Yesterday turned out to be a beautiful day here.

Today’s card is a step up from yesterday’s. I’m really loving this new set. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Delivering Cheer Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper for my card.

I started by adhering a panel of the Hand-Penned DSP to a Mint Macaron card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the top and bottom images from the Delivering Cheer stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image in using my Cinnamon Cider, Ivory, Mint Macaron and Pale Papaya Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Create With Friends Photopolymer Stamp Set in Pale Papaya and Mint Macaron Inks on the top of the Basic White panel. On a small panel of Hand-Penned DSP I stamped the skirt from the bottom image Delivering Cheer stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I fussy cut the skirt using my Paper Snips and adhered it to the stamped image using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I embossed a small panel of Pale Papaya cardstock using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the panel to the back of the artwork using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Genial Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Moments Cling Stamp Set in Mint Macaron 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 Pale Papaya mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Mint Macaron 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. This stamp set will be available starting August 3rd from the July-December 2021 Mini Catalog. Happy Stamping!!
