Stampin’ Up! Botanical Layers Sympathy

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How is everyone doing today? Are you ready for the weekend? I’ll be working both days this weekend.

Sorry I missed my Facebook Live on Wednesday, I ended up at work until after 4pm. Everything was cleaned up and all the work got done as planned, but whatever could go wrong did. Today’s card is not the one I was going to make on Wednesday, I just made a real quick one for today. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Botanical Layers Cling Stamp Set along with the Pretty Prints Designer Series Paper and the Stampin’ Up! Splendid Thoughts Cling Stamp Set (available July 1) for my card today.

I started by scoring and folding an Evening Evergreen card base. I folded the card base in half and then folded the front half back to make a Z-fold card.

I adhered a panel of Pretty Prints DSP to a Soft Sea Foam mat. I adhered the layered panel to the Evening Evergreen card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Soft Sea Foam cardstock, I stamped the fern image from the Botanical Layers stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink on the bottom of the panel. I cut the panel using the 5rh largest Deckled Rectangle Dies. I stamped the sentiment from the Splendid Thoughts stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink overlapping the fern. I embossed the panel using my Fern 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the embossed panel to an Evening Evergreen mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals, only on the left half. I added a few Brushed Metallic Adhesive Backed Dots to the card front.

On the inside I adhered a panel of Pretty Prints DSP to a Soft Sea Foam mat and then to the inside of the Evening Evergreen card base. I cut a panel of Soft Sea Foam cardstock using the 5th largest Deckled Rectangle Dies. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Through It Together Cling Stamp Set in Evening Evergreen Ink. I stamped the fern image from the Botanical Layers stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink, stamping off on scrap paper once, on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card base, lining it up with the card front so that you can’t see it when the card is closed.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the fern image from the Botanical Layers stamp set in Soft Sea Form Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of Pretty Prints DSP to the envelope flap.

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

Stampin’ Up! A Little Cheesy

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone’s weekend going? Hope you are doing something fun. I’ve got the day off, but I’m not sure what I will be doing yet. It’s supposed to be another warm one here. I believe yesterday hit 98 by me. I just love the warmer weather. I came home from a busy, crazy day at work and just sat outside on my patio for a while in the sun relaxing.

Today’s card doesn’t use any dies. Doesn’t use any punches. Doesn’t use any embellishments. What it does use is Stamps, Ink and Paper. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! A Little Cheesy Cling Stamp Set along with the Artistic Mix Decorative Masks and the Stampin’ Up! Through It Together Cling Stamp Set for today’s card.

I started with my Basic White card front and adhered the Artistic Mix Mask using Post-It note tape. Using my Blending Brush, I added Crumb Cake Ink a little at a time until I had the shade that I wanted.

I adhered a strip of Orchid Oasis and Starry Sky cardstock to the card front using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the card front to a Starry Sky card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment and cookie image from A Little Cheesy stamp set in Early Espresso Ink. I colored the image using my Crumb Cake and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Crumb Cake mat. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from Through It Together stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the cookie image from A Little Cheesy stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the bottom of the panel. I colored the image using my Crumb Cake and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to an Orchid Oasis mat and then to the inside of the Starry Sky card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the cookie image from A Little Cheesy stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the envelope front. I colored it using my Crumb Cake and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers. Using the Artistic Mix Masks and Blending Brush, I colored the envelope flap with Crumb Cake Ink.

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

Stampin’ Up! Lovely You Butterflies for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. I hope everyone is doing well today. If you are hopping over from Akiko Sudano’s blog, thank you for stopping by. This week we have a Theme Challenge. Here is my card using this week’s Theme.

I used the Butterflies & Flowers Layering Decorative Masks along with the Stampin’ Up! Lovely You Cling Stamp Set and Brights 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my card today.

This is our theme for this week.

My colors are from Hand Stamped Sentiments Color Challenge #387.

I started with a Basic White card front and using my Blending Brushes and the Butterflies & Flowers Masks I added Bermuda Bay Ink with the open butterfly mask on the top and bottom of the panel. I placed the detail butterfly mask over the inked image and added Pacific Point Ink. I embossed the panel using my Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder.

I adhered a panel of the Brights DSP to a Coastal Cabana card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On a strip of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from Lovey You stamp set in Pacific Point Ink. I cut the sentiment out using my Label Me Fancy Punch. I threaded a length of White 3/8″ Glittered Organdy Ribbon through the 2 ends and adhered it to the back of the card front using Tear & Tape.

I adhered the card front to the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I added a few Coastal Cabana Playing with Patterns Resin Dots to the artwork and a couple Brushed Brass Butterflies to the punched sentiment.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Through It Together stamp set in Pacific Point Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the flower image from the Lovely You stamp set in Bermuda Bay Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper, on either side of the sentiment. I adhered a strip of the Brights DSP to the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Bermuda Bay mat and then to the inside of the Coastal Cabana card base.

To complete 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 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 and see everyone’s projects today.

Stampin’ Up! Through It Together

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

Today’s card is another one we made last night at our Stamp Camp. My card design is from a friend and team member Terry Lynn Bright. My main focus at this month’s class was using designer series paper. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Through It Together Cling Stamp Set along with the Pattern Party Host Designer Series Paper and the Brilliant Wings Dies for my card today.

I started by adhering a Pattern Party DSP card front to a Basic White Thick card base.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from Through It Together stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink down the center of the panel. I embossed the panel using the Stripes & Splatters 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to a Granny Apple Green mat. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Using my Brilliant Wings Dies, I cut the solid butterfly from a panel of Rainbow Glimmer Paper. I cut the detailed butterfly from a panel of Vellum Paper. I adhered the Vellum butterfly to the Rainbow Glimmer butterfly just on the body. I adhered the butterfly to the layered panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I added a few Black Classic Matte Dots to the body.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from Through It Together stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I adhered a strip of Pattern Party DSP to the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Granny Apple Green mat and then to the inside of the Basic White Thick card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of Pattern Party 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!!

If you ever use the expedited shipping options, those fees are going up a bit too.  Here are the new fees for expedited shipping:

  • Next Day Upgrade: $38.00 USD ($3.00 USD increase from the previous rate)
  • 2nd Day Upgrade: $23.00 USD ($3.00 USD increase from the previous rate)

I want to make sure you’re aware of this change, as it impacts both you and me.  Stampin’ Up! has worked to keep the increase as minimal as possible so they can continue bringing you the unique, high-quality, and coordinated paper crafting products that you love.

Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Brilliance Sympathy

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. Hope your weekend is going well. I’ll be at work all day today and it’s supposed to be a little warmer and rain, but this is NJ we’ll see what happens lol. Yesterday I actually had the day to myself, which is surprising for a weekend. My husband went in one direction, my daughter another and my son another, so it was just me and Jasmine, my dog. I was able to get a few things done, like update my retired list of items that I’m selling. You can see the new items that I added HERE, or by going to my blog at creativestampingdesigns.com and clicking on the top where it says Retirement Sale List. I had a bit of crafters block, so I wasn’t able to get cards done like I planned, but at least it wasn’t a wasted day lol.

Today’s card is another one we made at my class on Tuesday using the 2020-2022 In-Colors. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Brilliance Cling Stamp Set along with the Stampin’ Up! Many Messages Cling Stamp Set and the 2020-2022 In-Color 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my card.

I started by adhering a panel of the Misty Moonlight 2020-2022 In-Color DSP to a Misty Moonlight card base. I embossed a panel of Cinnamon Cider cardstock using the Meadow Moments Embossing Folder and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut 2 of the largest detail butterflies from a panel of Vellum Paper using the Brillant Wings Dies. I adhered them under the Cinnamon Cider panel using Glue Dots on the wing that was tucked under the panel only. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the large butterfly image from the Butterfly Brilliance stamp set in Bumblebee Ink. I cut the butterfly out using my Brilliant Wings Dies.

I adhered the stamped butterfly image to the card front on the Cinnamon Cider panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment from the Many Messages stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink. I cut the sentiment out using my Messages Dies and adhered it over the butterfly using Stampin’ Dimensionals only on the ends. I added a few Bumblebee 2020-2022 In-Color Square Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Through It Together Cling Stamp Set in Misty Moonlight Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the butterfly image from the Butterfly Brilliance stamp set in Bumblebee Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper, on the side of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Cinnamon Cider mat and then to the inside of the Misty Moonlight card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the large butterfly from the Butterfly Brilliance stamp set in Bumblebee Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the Misty Moonlight 2020-2022 In-Color 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! Celebrate Sunflowers 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. Today I’m finally going to get to work in my garden. My yard has been sprayed for those annoying bugs, so hopefully I won’t get eaten alive again. I’m very excited about redoing my garden in case you can’t tell.

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! Celebrate Sunflowers Cling Stamp Set along with In Good Taste and Hand-Penned Designer Series Papers for my card today.

My inspiration for today’s card came from my sunflower plants I have growing in my backyard.

I started by stamping the large sunflower image from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Basic White Cardstock. I colored the image in using my Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image out using my Sunflower Dies. From a panel of Basic White cardstock I cut the middle Scalloped Contour Die. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Through It Together Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom corner of the die. I stamped the larger leaf image from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink 3 times. I colored the leaves in using my Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blends Markers and cut them out using my Sunflower Dies.

I adhered a panel of In Good Taste DSP to the front panel of the Smoky Slate card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the sunflower to the scalloped die using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals only on the left side of the panel. I adhered the leaves under the sunflower using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I scored and folded a smaller Highland Heather card base and adhered a panel of Hand-Penned DSP using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Through It Together stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the small sunflower image from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image in using my Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Mint Macaron and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Highland Heather mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the 3/4″ fold of the small card base behind the layered panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the layered panel to the inside of the Smoky Slate card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. The Highland Heather will tuck behind the scalloped die to hold the card closed. I added a couple Bumblebee Trinkets to my card using Glue Dots.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the small sunflower image from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I colored the image in using my Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Mint Macaron and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of Hand-Penned 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.

You can also view the video on my YouTube channel Here. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Friends Are Like Seashells Sailing Home for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team 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 Mary Deatherage’s blog, welcome to my blog and thank you for stopping by. The theme this month is “Celebrate Summer”.  We can interpret this however we want.  Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Friends Are Like Seashells Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Stampin’ Up! Sailing Home Cling Stamp Set. Nothing says summer to me like the beach.

My colors are from Sunday Stamps Challenge #261.

I started by embossing a Smoky Slate card front using the new Timber 3D Embossing Folder (available August 3rd). I adhered the embossed panel to a Night of Navy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the lighthouse image from the Sailing Home stamp set in Night of Navy Ink. I masked the lighthouse with a sticky note and added color to the backgrounds using my Blending Brushes. I added Coastal Cabana Ink on the top of the panel and Smoky Slate Ink on the bottom of the image. I stamped the bird image from the Sailing Home stamp set on the top of the panel in Night of Navy Ink. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Through It Together Cling Stamp Set next to the lighthouse image in Night of Navy Ink. I cut the image out using my Stitched Rectangle Dies. I adhered the artwork to a Night of Navy mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sand dollar image from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink and the seashells in Calypso Coral Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I cut the images out using the Seaside Shells Dies. I adhered the sand dollar and shells using Stampin’ Dimensionals and Glue Dots. I added a few Opal Rounds to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Sailing Home stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the sand dollar image from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the other seashells in Calypso Coral Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Smoky Slate mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Night of Navy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the sand dollar and seashell images from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Calypso Coral, Coastal Cabana and Smoky Slate Inks on the envelope front and envelope flap.

Thank you for visiting by my blog today, I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Now that you’ve seen my card, be sure to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects.
