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.

Here are the Designer Series Paper Shares that I am offering from the new Mini Catalog!

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.
