Stampin’ Up! Treasured Kindness CAS

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends and Happy Father’s Day!!! I hope you have something fun planned for the father’s, father’s to be, grandfathers, great grandfathers, fur father’s etc. I have a nice surprise for my husband from my son, daughter and I planned. Today is also my son’s birthday. I know I don’t talk about him a lot. I’m close with him, but he’s a man and doesn’t spend much time with mom. He’s been the apple of my eye since the day he was born. My little preemie is 27 and over 6′ tall. He’s a lot of fun to hang out with, he’s naturally funny, a soccer coach and loves being outside. He’s very friendly and personable and makes friends wherever he goes, we were on a ride together in Disney and he made a friend there. I thought before I get to my card, I’d share a few pictures of him. The pictures are from Disney in 2020, but he looks the same.

My favorite picture of him
Jay took his sister drinking around the world in Epcot. He hit every country, she hit 2 lol.
Me and my boy. He definitely gets his height from me lol
Jay and his dad exhausted from the early plane flight.

Thank you for letting me share. Today’s card is a CAS card using stamps, ink and paper. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Treasured Kindness Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the 2022-2024 In-Color 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper and Blending Brushes for my card today.

I played along with The Sisterhood of Crafters Seasonal Landscapes Challenge.

I started by adhering a panel of the 2022-2024 In-Color DSP to a Starry Sky card base. On a Basic White card front, I started at the bottom of the panel using my Blending Brushes with Soft Succulent Ink. Working my way up I used Pale Papaya, Sweet Sorbet, Orchid Oasis and Starry Sky Inks making sure to blend them between colors. I then cut the panel down to a 3 3/4″ X 5″ card front using my Paper Trimmer.

I stamped the sun image from the Treasured Kindness stamp set in Pale Papaya Ink in the center of the panel. Using the Treasured Kindness stamp set, I stamped the detailed tree trunk image in Soft Suede Ink. I stamped the tree trunk fill image in Soft Suede Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper. I stamped the detailed tree top image in Evening Evergreen Ink and the tree top fill image in Evening Evergreen Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper. I stamped the image below the tree in Soft Suede Ink once full strength and again stamped off.

On a strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Treasured Kindness stamp set in Starry Sky Ink. I cut the ends of the strip into a banner using my Paper Snips. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Glue Dots. I snipped a thin piece of Starry Sky cardstock on an angle using my Paper Snips and adhered it under the sentiment banner using Glue Dots. I adhered the card front to the Starry Sky card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Treasured Kindness stamp set in Starry Sky Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the sun image from the Treasured Kindness stamp set in Pale Papaya Ink on the bottom of the panel, stamping off once on scrap paper. I stamped the tree image from the Treasured Kindness stamp set on the bottom of the panel the same as I did for the card front.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the tree and sun images from the Treasured Kindness stamp set on the envelope front the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of 2022-2024 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! Treasured Kindness 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. Today is my daughter’s 24th birthday. I can’t believe that 24 years have gone by that quickly. She’s not only my daughter but my friend. We do most everything together. Unfortunately for the first time in years she has class today. Being a Memorial Day baby, she would almost always have her birthday off. Our plans are to celebrate it on Saturday with her friend and Monday with a small picnic.

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! Treasured Kindness Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Flowering Fields Designer Series Paper for my card today.

This is our sketch for this week.

I started by adhering a panel of Flowering Fields DSP to a Pear Pizzazz card base.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sun image from the Treasured Kindness stamp set in So Saffron Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper, in the center of the panel. I stamped the tree image from the Treasured Kindness stamp set. I stamped the tree trunk in Soft Suede Ink stamping the detailed full strength and the fill image stamped off once on scrap paper. I stamped the treetop stamping the detailed image in Pear Pizzazz Ink and the fill image in Soft Sea Foam Ink. I stamped the ground image from the Treasured Kindness stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink below the tree. I cut the panel using my Deckled Rectangle Dies (which have become my new favorite dies) and adhered it to the card base.

On a strip of So Saffron cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Treasured Kindness stamp set in Soft Suede Ink. I adhered the sentiment strip to a strip of Pear Pizzazz cardstock using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sun image from the Treasured Kindness stamp set in So Saffron Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the sentiment from the Treasured Kindness stamp set in Soft Suede Ink over the sun. I stamped the tree image from the Treasured Kindness stamp set on the bottom of the panel the same as I did for the card front. I adhered the Basic White panel to a So Saffron mat and then to the inside of the Pear Pizzazz card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the tree image from the Treasured Kindness stamp set on the envelope front the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of Flowering Fields 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.
