Stampin’ Up! Amazing Year for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. I hope you are ready for the weekend. Looks like we’ve got 6 more weeks of winter coming to us, the groundhog saw his shadow yesterday. I don’t know how it is by you, but it’s supposed to be cold here this weekend.

I have a quick fun fold for you today. This is not what I was planning on making Wednesday when I got stuck at work later than usual. I had everything planned out that I was going to be done with work by 1:30/2:00, I’d get home and get everything set up and be ready to go. My bills had other plans for me. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Amazing Year Fun Fold 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Amazing Year Cling Stamp Set from the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog along with the Perfectly Penciled Designer Series Paper for my card today.

Stampin' Up! Amazing Year Fun Fold 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by cutting 2 3/4″ off the front of the card base leaving 2 3/4″. I embossed a panel of Basic White cardstock using the Timeworn Type 3d Embossing Folder. Using my Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker, I flicked some ink on the panel to give a splattered look. I adhered the embossed panel to the front of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Amazing Year Fun Fold 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the flower image from the Amazing Year stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored just the flowers using my sweet Sorbet Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut a panel of Sweet Sorbet cardstock using the Scalloped Contours Dies. I adhered the artwork to the die cut panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals only on the left half of the panel.

I tied a double bow using the 2022-2024 In-Color Baker’s Twine Pack and adhered it to the floral image using a Glue Dot. I added a few 2022-2024 In-Color Matte Decorative Dots to the card front.

Stampin' Up! Amazing Year Fun Fold 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside, I adhered a panel of Perfectly Penciled DSP to the inside of the Basic Whtie Thick card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On a panel of Basic Whtie cardstock, I stamped the sentiments from the Amazing Year stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I stamped the top of the floral image from the Amazing Year stamp set on the bottom of the panel in Tuxedo Black Ink and colored just the flowers using my Sweet Sorbet Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to the inside of the card base using Stampin’ Seal.

Stampin' Up! Amazing Year Fun Fold 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the flower image from the Amazing Year stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I colored the flowers only using my Sweet Sorbet Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of Perfectly Penciled DSP to the envelope flap.

In response to changing policies at Stampin’ Up – I’m adjusting my Ordering Gift policy as well.  I’m having to get a little more tough on the adding of Host codes when you place your order thru my Online Store.

Not to worry – you’re still going to get that $10 ordering gift for orders of $50 (before shipping & tax) or greater.  And the gift is still any 1 SU! product up to that $10 value – which includes some of our fun Host Sets!

But – if you DO NOT use the Host code for your orders of less than $150 (this is the RETAIL total before Shipping & Handling), then you’ll have two options:

  1. You’ll need to call Stampin’ Up! (1-800-Stamp-Up) and ask them to add it for you. They’re very helpful and will get it done quickly!  OR….
  2. If your order was over the $50 threshold but under $150, then…you’ll forfeit that $10 ordering gift and rewards – this is the Bummer Option – and I REALLY don’t want to do this, SO please remember to add my Current Host Code.

Stampin’ Up! Kind & Sincere for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Does anyone have any plans yet for the weekend? I was supposed to have off the entire weekend to do my baking, but unfortunately, they were shorthanded at the dog bakery and me being a softy said I could help. So, plans have changed a bit, I’ll be mixing my cookies today and baking what I could on Sunday. The rest will have to get baked off during the week. I thought about not baking anything this year, but that’s not going over well at all. I’ve been doing this since I was a little girl with my mom and as she got older, I just took over. I can’t break a tradition.

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 is my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Kind & Sincere Fun Fold 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the new Stampin’ Up! Kind & Sincere Cling Stamp Set (available starting January 5, 2023) along with the Stampin’ Up! Cottage Rose Cling Stamp Set and Abigail Rose Designer Series Paper for my card today.

Stampin' Up! Kind & Sincere Fun Fold 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by adhering a panel of Abigail Rose DSP to a Smoky Slate card back. I scored & folded a Pool Party card base as listed below. Adhered the card base to the center of the card back. Fussy cut one of the large flower images from the Abigail Rose DSP using Paper Snips. Color the image using Highland Heatherm Petal Pink, Pool Party, Shaded Spruce and Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blends Markers.

Adhere the layered panel to the 1 1/2″ left side only of the card base. Adhere the large fussy cut floral image to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Kind & Sincere Fun Fold 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

Adhere a panel of Abigail Rose DSP to the 1 1/2″ right side of the card base. On a panel of Basic White cardstock stamp the sentiment from the Kind & Sincere stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink. Cut the sentiment out using the 2nd largest narrow rectangle die from the Stitched Rectangle Dies. Adhere the sentiment over the floral image using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Kind & Sincere Fun Fold 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the thin panel of Basic White cardstock, stamp the sentiment from Kind & Sincere stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink.

Add a few Elegant Faceted Gems to the card front.

Adhere the 2 panels of Abigail Rose DSP to the inside of the card base. Stamp the small flower image from the Cottage Rose stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink on the bottom of the Basic White panel.

Today’s card is one that we made at our quarterly meeting on Sunday. It was designed by one of my amazing team member Tara Carpenter. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Season of Chic Merlot Thanks 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Season of Chic Bundle for my card today.

I stamped the sentiment from the Season of Chic stamp set in Night of Navy Ink over the swish image. I stamped the outline flower image from the Season of Chic stamp set in Merry Merlot Ink on the corners of the panel. I stamped the solid flower image in Merry Merlot Ink, stamping off once, inside the outline image. I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Night of Navy mat then to the inside of the Merry Merlot card base.

But – if you DO NOT use the Host code for your orders of less than $150 (this is the RETAIL total before Shipping & Handling), then you’ll have two options:

  1. You’ll need to call Stampin’ Up! (1-800-Stamp-Up) and ask them to add it for you. They’re very helpful and will get it done quickly!  OR….
  2. If your order was over the $50 threshold but under $150, then…you’ll forfeit that $10 ordering gift and rewards – this is the Bummer Option – and I REALLY don’t want to do this, SO please remember to add my Current Host Code.

Stampin’ Up! He’s All That Birthday

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend? Did anyone do anything fun?

A while back my neighbor asked me to make invitations for her husband’s 80th birthday party. I finally got around to making a sample to see if she liked it, but the sample is the birthday card that I’m going to give him. The invitations do not have ribbon or embellishments on them. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! He’s All That Bundle along with the He’s The Man Designer Series Paper and the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder for my card today.

I started by embossing a Sahara Sand card front using the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the embossed panel to a Sahara Sand card bae using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered 2 panels of He’s The Man DSP to Early Espresso mats. I adhered the smaller layered panel to the longer layered panel using Stampin’ Seal. I wrapped a piece of Early Espresso 1/4″ Faux Suede Trim around the layered panels and tied a knot. I adhered the layered panels to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the image from the Stampin’ Up! He’s All That Cling Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink. I cut the image out using the All That Dies. I sponged Sahara Sand Ink around the edges of the die cut image using a Sponge Dauber. I adhered the die cut image to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Rustic Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Celebrating you Cling Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink on a Basic White panel. I adhered a strip of He’s The Man DSP to the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to an Early Espresso 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 He’s The Man 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! Amazing Silhouettes 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 Sketch Challenge. Here is my card using this week’s Sketch.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Amazing Silhouettes Cling Stamp Set along with the Design A Daydream Designer Series Paper for my card today.

This is our sketch for this week.

I started by adhering a panel of Design A Daydream DSP to a Blackberry Bliss card base.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the butterfly image from Amazing Silhouettes stamp set in Blackberry Bliss Ink. I embossed the panel using the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Fresh Freesia mat and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Using the Amazing Thanks Dies, I cut the detailed sentiment from a panel of Blackberry Bliss cardstock. I cut the mat for the sentiment from a panel of Fresh Freesia cardstock. I adhered the detailed sentiment to the mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Glue Dots. I added a few Iridescent Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Cottage Rose Cling Stamp Set in Blackberry Bliss Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the butterfly image from the Amazing Silhouettes stamp set in Fresh Freesia Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper, over the sentiment. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Fresh Freesia mat and then to the inside of the Blackberry Bliss card base.

to complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the butterfly image from the Amazing Silhouettes stamp set on the envelope front in Blackberry Bliss Ink. I adhered a panel of Design A Daydream DSP 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! Bottled Happiness

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends and welcome to the weekend. I hope you have something fun in the works this weekend.

I played with a few different things for today’s card, stamps, ink, paper, dies, punch, embossing. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Bottled Happiness Bundle along with the Fabulous Frames Dies and the Timeworn Type 3e Embossing Folder for my card today.

My colors are from the Color Throwdown Challenge #695.

I started by stamped the leaf image from the Stampin’ Up! Bottled Happiness Photopolymer Stamp Set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock. I stamped the floral image from the Bottled Happiness stamp set in Highland Heather Ink over the leaf image. I cut the image out using the largest die from the Fabulous Frames Dies making sure the floral image was towards the top. I embossed the floral image panel using the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the embossed panel to a Very Vanilla Thick card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

From a panel of Brushed Metallic cardstock, I cut the corner die from the Fabulous Frames Dies. I adhered the corners to the Very Vanilla frame using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the frame to the Very Vanilla Thick card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the outline bottle image from the Bottled Happiness stamp set in Balmy Blue Ink. I stamped the bottle fill image from the Bottled Happiness stamp set in Balmy Blue Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper. I cut the bottle out using the Vintage Bottle Punch. I adhered the bottle 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 Stampin’ Up! go To Greetings Cling Stamp Set in Highland Heather Ink on a Very Vanilla panel. I stamped the floral image from the Bottled Happiness stamp set on the bottom of the panel the same as I did for the card front. I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to the inside of the Very Vanilla Thick card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Very Vanilla Medium Envelope. I stamped the floral image from the Bottled Happiness stamp set on the envelope front the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of Subtle 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper 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! Let’s Set Sail Father’s Day

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend. It was beautiful here, especially yesterday. I believe it was 78 and sunny most of the day. Now we’re back to rain and 50. Is anyone else watching the clock like I am? Less than 24 hours till the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog goes live, YAY!!!! I can’t wait. I’ve got my list all ready to go starting with my must haves right away, then my I want it now’s, followed by I’ll get it next week if I can wait that long and finally I want them, but I can wait a bit. I will be hitting that expedite button so I have my new goodies in a day or 2 so that I can get all the DSP cut up and shipped out to you ASAP.

Today’s card is one that we will be making at my monthly class tomorrow night. I thought I’d start the night off, and today’s post, with all the new 2022-2024 In-Colors. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Let’s Set Sail Bundle along with the Stampin’ Up! Gentle Waves Cling Stamp Set and the Stampin’ Up! Happy & Heartfelt Cling Stamp Set for my card today.

I started by embossing a panel of Basic White card front using the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder. On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the water image from the Gentle Waves stamp set first in Tahitian Tide Ink. I moved the panel up a little and stamped it again in Starry Sky Ink. I adhered the stamped panel to the embossed panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sailboat image from the Let’s Set Sail stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink. I colored the masts in Parakeet Party using my 2022-2024 In- Colors Stampin’ Write Markers. I stamped the sails images from the Let’s Set Sail stamp set in Orchid Oasis and Sweet Sorbet Inks. Using my Sailboat Builder Punch, I cut all the images out. Before punching them, I cut them apart using my Paper Snips to make it a little easier to punch. I adhered the sailboats to the stamped panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I stamped the shadow image from the Let’s Set Sail stamp set in Starry Sky Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper, below the boat image.

I adhered the Sweet Sorbet sails using Glue Dots and the Orchid Oasis sails using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I stamped the bird image from the Let’s Set Sail stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink on the top of the panel. On a small panel of Basic Whtie cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Let’s Set Sail stamp set in Starry Sky Ink. I cut the sentiment out using my Stylish Shapes Dies. I wrapped a piece of Starry Sky Baker’s Twine from the 2022-2024 In-Color Baker’s Twine Pack around the panel twice tying a knot on the back. I adhered the sentiment using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the card front to a Basic White Thick card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a Parakeet Party 2022-2024 matte Decorative Dots to the sentiment.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Happy & Heartfelt stamp set in Starry Sky Ink on a Basic Whtie panel. On the bottom of the panel, I stamped the water image from the Gentle Waves stamp set in Tahitian Tide Ink. I stamped the sailboat images from the Let’s Set Sail stamp set in Sahara Sand and Sweet Sorbet Inks on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the shadow image from the Let’s Set Sail stamp set in Starry Sky Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper, below the boat. I stamped the birds’ image around the sentiment. I adhered the Basic White panel to the inside of the Basic White Thick card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the water image from the Gentle Waves stamp set on the envelope front in Tahitian Tide Ink. I stamped the sailboat image from the Let’s Set Sail stamp set in Orchid Oasis and Sahara Sand on the bottom of the envelope. I stamped the birds in Smoky Slated Ink. I adhered a panel of Sahara Sand Neutrals 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper 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! Hand-Penned Petals 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 Sketch Challenge. Here is my card using this week’s Sketch.

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

Here is our sketch for this week.

I started by adhering a panel of Hand Penned DSP to a Garden Green card base. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the outline floral image from the Hand-Penned Petals stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I adhered a Post-It note to the panel and stamped the floral image once. I flipped the panel over and adhered the Post-It note again and stamped the floral image a second time. I stamped the leaves in Garden Green Ink. I stamped the flowers in Daffodil Delight, Highland Heather and Pool Party Inks.

I embossed the panel using my Timeworn Type 3d Embossing Folder. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Cactus Cuties Photopolymer Stamp Set in Versamark Ink on a panel of Garden Green cardstock. I immediately sprinkled it with my White Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I cut the sentiment out using my Waves Dies.

I threaded White Bakers Twine through the sentiment and adhered it to the back with Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a couple Brushed Brass Butterflies and a Bumblebee Trinket to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Hand-Penned Petals stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the outlined floral image from the Hand-Penned Petals stamp set on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the leaves in Gaden Green Ink and the flowers in Daffodil Delight, Highland Heather and Pool Party Inks. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Garden Green mat and then to the inside of the Garden Green card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the outlined floral image from the Hand Penned Petals stamp set on the envelope front in Tuxedo Black Ink. I stamped the leaves and flowers the same as i did for the card front. I adhered a panel of Hand Penned DSP 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! Blessings of Home Mother’s Day

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends. I hope you are all having a wonderful week so far.

Today’s card has very little stamping and is focusing on designer series paper. We will be making this card tonight at my Stamp Camp card class and just like yesterday’s, everyone will be making the same card, but just a little different. I’ve cut all different DSP and cardstock colors for each of the ladies. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Blessings of Home Cling Stamp Set along with the Stampin’ Up! Happy & Heartfelt Cling Stamp Set and the Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by embossing a Basic White card front using the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder.

I adhered 3 panels of Hand Penned DSP to 3 Highland Heather mats. I adhered the 2 larger layered panels to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and the smaller panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I wrapped a piece of White Bakers Twine from the Bakers Twine Essential Pack around the card front twice and tied a bow.

On a panel of Highland Heather cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Blessings of Home stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I sponged the edges of the panel with Highland Heather Ink using my Sponge Dauber. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the card front to a Highland Heather card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Bumblebee Trinkets to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Happy & Heartfelt 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. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Highland Heather mat and then to the inside of the Highland Heather card base.

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! New Shipping Fees Beginning April 1

I want to let you know about a change to Stampin’ Up!’s shipping and handling pricing.  Starting April 1, the minimum shipping charge will increase by $1.00, from $6.95 to $7.95—or by one percentage point, from 10% to 11% of the total order amount—whichever is greater.

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)
  • 3 Day Shipping Upgrade: $15.00 USD ($5.00 USD increase from the previous rate)
  • The expedited shipping option rates above are calculated in addition to the standard shipping rate (e.g., the next day shipping option would cost $7.95 USD or 11%—whichever is greater—plus $38.00 USD)

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.
