Stampin’ Up! Ranunculus Romance Hello for The Card Concepts

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. We’re halfway through the week already and on our way to the weekend. I hope you are starting to make some plans.

It’s time for another inspiration challenge for The Card Concepts. The inspiration photo is Fresh New Year.  Here is my card that was inspired from the challenge photo.

I used the new Stampin’ Up! Ranunculus Romance Bundle along with the Pattern Party Host Designer Series Paper for my Clean & Layered card today. I was inspired by the beautiful roses in the photo along with the colors.

I hope you will take a moment to visit The Card Concepts and join us for our challenge #166.  How are you inspired by this photo?

I started by adhering a panel of the Pattern Party DSP to a Basic White Thick card base.

From a panel of Flirty Flamingo and Petal Pink cardstock, I cut a detailed and solid flower using my Ranunculus Dies. I adhered them together using a tiny amount of Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the flower to the card front.

From a panel of Basic White cardstock I cut the largest circle from my Layering Circles Dies. I stamped the rose image and sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Ranunculus Romance Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I cut the images using my Ranunculus Dies. I colored the rose image in using my Flirty Flamingo and Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends Markers. I embossed the large circle using my Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder. I cut the largest scalloped circle using my Layering Circles Dies from a panel of the Brushed Metallic cardstock. I adhered the embossed circle to the gold circle using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered a piece of the Petal Pink 5/8″ Organdy Striped Ribbon to the circle then the flower over it using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the layered circle to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the sentiment to the bottom of the circle using a Glue Dot and Stampin’ Dimensional. I added a few Iridescent Rhinestones Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Special Moments Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. This set is a Sale-a-bration item and can be earned FREE with a qualifying order. I stamped the rose image from the Ranunculus Romance stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the side of the panel and colored it in using my Flirty Flamingo, Granny Apple Green and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic Whtie panel to a Petal Pink mat and then to the inside of the Basic White Thick card base.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the rose image from the Ranunculus Romance stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I colored the image in using my Flirty Flamingo, Granny Apple Green and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of the Pattern Party 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! Amazing Silhouettes Sneak Peek

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. We’re halfway through the week and on our way to the weekend. I’m scheduled to work both days at both jobs. I’m just taking it really easy since I’m still not doing well.

I have a sneak peek for you today of some goodies coming in the new January-June 2022 Mini Catalog. When I first saw this set, I was not going to get it. This was a set that we all received at our OnStage event in November. Even when I received it, I just stood and stared at it wondering what to do. Well, here’s what I did with it for today.

I used the new Stampin’ Up! Amazing Silhouettes Bundle, the Stampin’ Up! Special Moments Photopolymer Stamp Set (a free Sale-a-bration item) along with the Simply Marbleous 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper (a free Sale-a-bration item), for my card today.

My design is from Inspire. Create. Challenge #105.

My colors are from TGIF Challenge #345. I really love these colors together.

I started by cutting a Basic White card front on an angle. I cut 1″ down on the right side to 2″ down on the left side. I stamped the larger image from the Stampin’ Up! Amazing Silhouettes Cling Stamp Set in Misty Moonlight Ink on the Basic White card front. I embossed the panel using the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder.

I adhered the card front to a panel of the new Marbleous 6 X 6 DSP. I wrapped a piece of the new Misty Moonlight 1/8″ Cotton Ribbon from the Cotton Ribbon Combo Pack, around the panel adhering it in the back. I adhered the card front to a Pool Party card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue

Using the new Amazing Thanks Dies, I cut the bubble letters from a panel of Just Jade cardstock and the detailed letters from a panel of Pool Party cardstock. I adhered the 2 together using tiny amounts of Multipurpose Liquid Glue and adhered them to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Brushed Brass Butterflies to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Special Moments stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the butterfly image from the Amazing Silhouettes stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink, stamping off once, to the side of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Just Jade 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 butterfly image from the Amazing Silhouettes stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a strip of the Marbleous DSP to the envelope front and a panel to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. The items I used for my card will be available starting January 4, 2022 from the January-June 2022 Mini Catalog. This might be a set you want to consider getting. It’s a lot prettier in person than I thought it would be and I love the dies. Happy Stamping!!!

Stampin’ Up! Eden’s Garden Hello

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone’s weekend going? I’m actually getting more rest than I’ve probably gotten in over 20 years. Not being able to breathe will do that to you. Fingers crossed I’m better by tomorrow. We have our in-person team meeting today and I’m so looking forward to it. I just love getting to see all my team members in person even if it’s through zoom.

I have a fairly quick card for you today using a set that will be available in the January-June 2022 Mini Catalog, but you can purchase it now. Before I forget, if you are a customer of mine, your catalogs went out in the mail yesterday. Keep a watch out for them!! Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Eden’s Garden Cling Stamp Set along with the Ever Eden Specialty Designer Series Paper for my card today.

My colors are from Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge #378.

I started by adhering a panel of Ever Eden DSP to a Merry Merlot card base. The Ever Eden DSP is only available while supplies last. It will not be in the new Mini Catalog, so grab it while it’s still available.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the large floral image from the Eden’s Garden stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink. I stamped the sentiment from the Eden’s Garden stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink next to the floral image. I embossed the panel using the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder.

From a panel of Merry Merlot cardstock I cut a mat using the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. I adhered the artwork to the mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Garden Gems to the artwork. The Garden Gems are also only while supplies last and will not be in the new Mini Catalog.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Eden’s Garden stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the large floral image from the Eden’s Garden stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Merry Merlot mat and then to the inside of the Merry Merlot card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the large floral image from the Eden’s Garden stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of Ever Eden 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 are loving this Ever Eden DSP as much as I am, you might want to grab it before it sells out along with the beautiful Garden Gems. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Tomorrow Inspired Thoughts for Fun Fold Friday 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 at work all weekend.

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! Beauty of Tomorrow Bundle, the Stampin’ Up! Inspired Thoughts Cling Stamp Set along with the Blackberry Beauty Specialty Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I joined in with Creative Creases #18

I started by adhering a Blackberry Beauty DSP card front to a Cinnamon Cider mat and then to the front of a Rich Razzleberry card front.

I stamped the sentiment from the Inspired Thoughts stamp set in Cinnamon Cider Ink on a panel of Very Vanilla card stock. I cut the sentiment out using my Tasteful Labels Dies.

I adhered a length of the Gold 3/8″ Shimmer Ribbon to the card front then adhered the sentiment over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I adhered 2 panels of the Blackberry Beauty DSP to Early Espresso mats and then to the inside of the Rich Razzleberry card base. I scored & cut a panel of Rich Razzleberry cardstock as follows. First score the panel at 2 1/8″, 4 1/4″ & 6 3/8″. Make a little tick mark on the short edge 1 1/2″ up from the bottom. Cut from the tick mark to the upper left corner on a diagonal. The 2 1/8″ & 6 3/8″ score lines are valley folds and the 4 1/4″ score line is a mountain fold. I cut a panel of Early Espresso cardstock by making a tick mark on the short edge 1 1/4″ up from the bottom. Cut from the tick mark to the upper left corner on a diagonal. Cut the panel in 2″ intervals. I cut a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock by making a tick mark 1 1/8″ up from the bottom of the short edge. I cut from the tick mark to the upper left corner on a diagonal. Cut the panel in 1 7/8″ intervals. Emboss the 2 center Very Vanilla panels using the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder. Adhere the Very Vanilla panels to the Early Espresso mats. Adhered the layered panels to the Rich Razzleberry panel

Adhered the layered panel to the inside of the card base using Tear & Tape on the ends. Once it’s adhered it will look like the above picture.

On a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock stamp the larger floral image from the Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Tomorrow Cling Stamp Set in Rich Razzleberry Ink, stamping off once. Stamp the smaller floral image from the Beauty of Tomorrow stamp set in Cinnamon Cider Ink, stamping off once. Stamp the bird image from the Beauty of Tomorrow stamp set in Early Espresso Ink, stamping off once. Cut all the images out using the Beautiful Leaves Dies. Adhered the die cut images to the center embossed panels using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. Stamp the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Friends Are Like Seashells Photopolymer Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink and cut the sentiment out using the Tasteful Labels Dies. Adhered the sentiment to the top of the inner panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

To finish my card I decorated a Very Vanilla Medium Envelope. I stamped the floral image from the Beauty of Tomorrow stamp set in Rich Razzleberry Ink, stamping off once, on the envelope front. I stamped the bird image from the Beauty of Tomorrow stamp set in Early Espresso Ink, stamping off once, on the opposite side of the envelope front.

Stampin’ Up! Gorgeous Leaves

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. After taking a summer break, we’re back. Our 1st inspiration photo is Colorful Fall. Here is my card that I was inspired by the photo.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Gorgeous Leaves Bundle and the Stampin’ Up! Love of Leaves Photopolymer Stamp Set for my card today. I was inspired by the beautiful colors of the leaves for my clean and layered card.

I hope you will take a moment to visit The Card Concept and join us for our challenge #159. How are you inspired by this photo.

I started by randomly stamping the leaf images from the Stampin’ Up! Gorgeous Leaves Cling Stamp Set in Bumblebee, Cherry Cobbler and Fresh Freesia Inks on a Basic White panel. I stamped the splotch image from the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink randomly on the panel.

I embossed the panel using my Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the panel to a Thick Basic White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. Using my Intricate Leaves Dies I cut 1 branch from a panel of Soft Suede cardstock and 3 leaves from panels of Bumblebee, Cherry Cobbler and Fresh Freesia cardstock. I stamped the sentiment from the Love of Leaves stamp set on a panel of Basic White cardstock in soft Succulent Ink. I cut the sentiment out using my Hippo & Friends Dies.

I arranges the branch and leaves on the sentiment die cut and adhered them using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and Glue Dots. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I tied a small knot using the 3/8″ Soft Succulent Open Weave Ribbon and adhered it to the stems using a Glue Dot. I added a few Brushed Metallic Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Love of Leaves stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the leaves from the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set in Bumblebee, Cherry Cobbler and Fresh Freesia Ink around the top of the panel. I stamped the splotch image from the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink, stamping off once, around the sentiment. I adhered the Basic White panel to the inside of the Thick Basic White card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To finish my card I stamped the leaves and splotch images from the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set in Bumblebee, Cherry Cobbler, Fresh Freesia and Soft Succulent Inks on the envelope front and 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! Beauty of Tomorrow Thank You

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone’s week going? We’re halfway through and on our way to the weekend already. I’m so excited, tomorrow I’ll be heading down the shore for the day. It’s our 1st, and probably last, time this summer. The beach is my happy place. I get lost in my thoughts listening to the waves and taking long walks along the water. I’m so looking forward to going.

Today’s card we made last night at our team meeting. My team leader, Jaimie, decided to do some mystery stamping. She gave us all the cardstock and DSP measurements. We had to pick the stamp set and colors we wanted and she talked us through making our cards. All our cards were different, but yet the same. It was so much fun, I can’t wait to do it again. Here’s the card I made.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Tomorrow Cling Stamp Set along with the Harvest Meadow Designer Series Paper for my card.

I started by randomly stamping the images from the Beauty of Tomorrow stamp set in Cinnamon Cider, Misty Moonlight and Soft Succulent Inks on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I embossed the panel using my Timework Type 3D Embossing Folder.

I cut the artwork into 1″ strips using my Paper Trimmer and adhered them to the Basic White mat, leaving a tiny space between the strips, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the layered panel to an Evening Evergreen mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered a panel of Harvest Meadow DSP to a Basic White mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to a Soft Succulent card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the layered artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Evening Evergreen cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Harvest Cling Stamp Set in Versamark Ink. I immediately sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I cut the sentiment out using my Ornate Frames Dies. I adhered a length of Soft Succulent 3/8″ Open Weave Ribbon to the top of the artwork using a tiny amount of Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the sentiment over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few 2021-2023 In-Color Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Nature’s Harvest stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the images from the Beauty of Tomorrow stamp set in Cinnamon Cider, Misty Moonlight and Soft Succulent Inks on the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to an Evening Evergreen mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Soft Succulent card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the images from the Beauty of Tomorrow stamp set on the envelope front in Cinnamon Cider, Misty Moonlight and Soft Succulent Inks. 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!!

I made a multiloop bow using Linen Thread and adhered it to the card front using a Glue Dot. I added a few Pumpkin Pie Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the artwork.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Pretty Pumpkins stamp set in Cajun Craze Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the leaf images from the Pretty Pumpkins stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink above and below the sentiment. I colored the leaves in using my Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Cajun Craze mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Crumb Cake card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the trio pumpkin image from the Pretty Pumpkins stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front.

Stampin’ Up! Feels Like Home 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 my blog. This week we have a Sketch Challenge. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects. I have a little sneak peek for you today coming from the August-December 2021 Mini Catalog that will be available August 3rd. Here is my card using this weeks Sketch.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Feels Like Home Cling Stamp Set which will be a Sale-A-Bration item starting on August 3rd.

I started by stamping the large image from the Feels Like Home stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I cut the image our using my Stitched Rectangle Dies. I had to adjust the size of the die by cutting part of the image, turning the panel around and moving the die matching up the stitching and cutting the other half. I adhered the artwork to a Crumb Cake mat using Stampin’ Seal. I stamped the small flowerpot image from the Feels Like Home stamp set on the panel of Basic White cardstock in Crumb Cake Ink. I colored the image in using my Highland Heather and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers. I fussy cut the image using my Paper Snips and adhered it to the bottom of the layered panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On another panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Feels Like Home stamp set in Crumb cake Ink. I tore the edges of the paper and sponged the rough edges using my Stamping Sponge and Crumb Cake Ink. I embossed a Crumb Cake card front using the new Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder (available August 3rd) and adhered it to a Crumb Cake card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered the sentiment panel to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the layered artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few of the new Brushed Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Inspired Thoughts Cling Stamp Set on a Basic White panel. I tore the edges of the panel and sponged the edges using my Stamping Sponge and Crumb Cake Ink. I stamped the flowerpot image from the Feels Like Home stamp set on the bottom of the panel and colored it in using my Highland Heather and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Crumb Cake mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Crumb Cake card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the larger image from the Feels Like Home stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink on the envelope front. I stamped the small flowerpot image from the Feels Like Home stamp set on the envelope flap. I colored the image with my Highland Heather and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers.
