Stampin’ Up! Sending Smiles Thank You Card

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends and welcome to the weekend. Does anyone have plans yet? Decorating, putting up your Christmas trees or maybe going to pick out a tree. I’ll be at work all day today and I’m kind of hoping it’s busy so the day will fly by.

I have a winter card today, but not a Christmas card. I’m using a bundle from the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog and a bundle that will be retiring soon. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Sending Smiles Thank You 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Sending Smiles Bundle, Stampin’ Up! Joyful Flurry Bundle and the Stampin’ Up! Very Best Occasions Cling Stamp Set along with the Snowflake Vellum paper for my card today.

Stampin' Up! Sending Smiles Thank You 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by cutting 2 of the snowflakes from the Frosted Flurry Dies on a panel of Silver Foil Paper. I adhered the die cut snowflake panel to a Snowflake Vellum card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Sending Smiles Thank You 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

I added adhesive to the back of the Snowflake Vellum panel just where the Silver Foil panel was adhered and adhered the panel to a Tahitian Tide card base.

Stampin' Up! Sending Smiles Thank You 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

From a panel of Basic Black cardstock, I cut the large sentiment out using the Sending Dies. I adhered the sentiment on an angle between the snowflakes on the Silver Foil. On a small panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Sending Smiles Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I cut the sentiment out using the Sending Dies. I adhered the sentiment below the large sentiment using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a silver Festive Pearl to the sentiment and Iridescent Pearls to the snowflake centers.

Stampin' Up! Sending Smiles Thank You 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Very Best Occasions stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the snowflake images from the Stampin’ Up! Joyful Flurry Cling Stamp Set in Tahitian Tide Ink, some full strength some stamped off once, around the edges of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Basic Black mat then to the inside of the Tahitian Tide card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the snowflake images from the Joyful Flurry stamp set in Tahitian Tide Ink on the envelope front and 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 (cardstock packs excluded) – 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! Cottage Wreaths for The Card Concepts

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. I hope everyone’s week is going well. We’re halfway through and on our way to the weekend. Can you believe it’s the last day of November already? I’ve lost the past 2 months, they have been a blur to me.

It’s time for an inspiration challenge from The Card Concepts. The inspiration photo #185 is Christmas Greetings.  Here is my card that was inspired from the challenge photo.

Stampin' Up! Cottage Wreaths 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Cottage Wreaths Bundle for my card today. I was inspired by the wreath on the door and the colors for my clean & layered card.

I hope you will take a moment to visit The Card Concepts and join us for our challenge #185.  How are you inspired by the photos?

Stampin' Up! Cottage Wreaths 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by adhering 4 smaller panels of Cherry Cobbler cardstock to a larger panel making it look like a door. I embossed the panel using the Timber 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the layered embossed panel to a Basic White Thick card base.

Stampin' Up! Cottage Wreaths 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the twig wreath image from the Stampin’ Up! Cottage Wreaths Photopolymer Stamp Set in Sahara Sand Ink. I stamped the small pine bough image from the Cottage Wreath stamp set all around the wreath in Evening Evergreen Ink. I stamped multiple pine bough images on the Basic White Panel. Using my Country Wreaths Dies, I cut out the wreath and all the pine bough images. I adhered the pine boughs to the wreath using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the wreath to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. From a panel of Real Red cardstock I cut the bow from the Country Wreaths Dies. I adhered the bow to the wreath using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Cottage Wreaths 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Cottage Wreaths stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink. I cut the sentiment out using the smallest die from the Stylish Shapes Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added Red Rhinestones Basic Jewels to the wreath and 1 Brushed Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dot as a doorknob.

Stampin' Up! Cottage Wreaths 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Very Best Occasions Cling Stamp Set in Evening Evergreen Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the bow image from the Cottage Wreaths stamp set in Real Red Ink on the top of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat then to the inside of the Basic White Thick card base.

Stampin' Up! Cottage Wreaths 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the bow image from the Cottage Wreaths stamp set in Real Red Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of Painted Christmas Designer Series Paper to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! In The Moment Thank You Card

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends and welcome to the weekend. Does anyone have any fun plans? I’ll be working all day today, but I do have off tomorrow. Thursday was my first day out working all day and I was exhausted through Friday. I’m hoping the same doesn’t happen again. I was told it might take at least a month before I feel more like myself. I’m really hoping it doesn’t take that long.

Today’s card has lots of layers. I love cards with layers, the only problem with them is it’s always more postage to mail them. I also wanted to play with the 2022-2024 In-colors. I haven’t used them in a while, and I thought it was time. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! In The Moments 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Brilliance for The Card Concepts

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends.  I hope everyone is having a productive week. We’re halfway through and on our way to the weekend. I’m not sure if I’ll be able to go live today on my Facebook page since today’s the first day I’m back in the office since last Thursday. I will post something on my Facebook page if I will be going live at 4pm ET.

It’s time for an inspiration challenge for The Card Concepts after a few weeks off for the summer. The inspiration photo is Change of Seasons. Here is my card that was inspired from the challenge photo.

Stampin' Up! Butterfly Brilliance 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Brilliance Cling Stamp Set along with the Stampin’ Up! Very Best Occasions Cling Stamp Set and the Tea Boutique 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my clean and simple card today.

I hope you will take a moment to visit The Card Concepts and join us for our challenge #179.  How are you inspired by this photo?

Stampin' Up! Butterfly Brilliance 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by adhering 2 strips of Tahitian Tide cardstock to a Tea Boutique DSP card front using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the panel to a Basic White Thick card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Butterfly Brilliance 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the largest butterfly image from the Butterfly Brilliance stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I cut the butterfly out using the Brilliant Wings Dies. I then colored the butterfly image using my So Saffron, Sweet Sorbet and Tahitian Tide Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the butterfly to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals just in the center bending the wings up a bit.

Stampin' Up! Butterfly Brilliance 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Very Best Occasions stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I cut the sentiment out using the Label Me Fancy Punch. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few 2022-2024 In-Color Matte Decorative Dots to the card front.

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Very Best Occasions stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the butterfly image from the Butterfly Brilliance stamp set on either side of the panel in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the images in using my So Saffron, Sweet Sorbet and Tahitian Tide Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Tahitian Tide mat and then to the inside of the Basic White Thick card base.

Stampin’ Up! Kindest Gnomes Birthday

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends and welcome to the weekend. Does anyone have plans? I’ll be at work all day today, but it turns out I have off tomorrow. I’m sure I’ll be staying inside no matter what. We’re supposed to be in the 100’s Sunday. My tomato plants are thriving with this heat, and I’m only supposed to water on odd days. I am giving them just a little water on even days and really soaking them on the odd days. We’re in a bit of a drought here so the water company has asked for us to conserve water and only water on odd days. We haven’t had any rain here for almost a month now and with the heat everything is drying out, it actually looks like fall on some of my neighbors’ lawns. They are covered with leaves that have fallen from the trees because of lack of rain.

Today’s card is for my neighbor, co-worker and friend. I hired her at the hardware store over 20 years ago, then I just happen to buy the house next to where she was living 29 years ago. We’ve been through a lot together. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Kindest Gnomes Birthday 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Kindest Gnomes Bundle along with the Happy Forest Friends Designer Series Paper and the Stampin’ Up! Very Best Occasions Cling Stamp Set for my card today.

Stampin' Up! Kindest Gnomes Birthday 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by adhering a panel of Happy Forest Friends DSP to a Sahara Sand card base. I adhered another panel of Happy Forest Friends DSP to a Sahara Sand mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Kindest Gnomes Birthday 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the images from the Stampin’ Up! Kindest Gnomes Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the images using my Calypso Coral, Crumb Cake, Ivory, Night of Navy, Pale papaya, Petal Pink, Soft Suede, Sweet Sorbet and Tahitian Tide Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image out using the Gnome Dies. I adhered the die cut images to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Kindest Gnomes Birthday 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Calypso Coral cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Kindest Gnomes stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I cut the sentiment out using the smallest die from the Tailored Made Tags Dies. I threaded a piece of White Baker’s Twine from the Baker’s Twine Essential Pack, through the tag and tied a bow. I adhered the tag to the card front in the gnome’s hand using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Fine Sparkle Adhesive-Backed Gems and Brushed Brass Butterflies to the card front.

Stampin' Up! Kindest Gnomes Birthday 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Very Best Occasions stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the gnome image from the Kindest Gnomes stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom of the panel. I colored the image using my Crumb Cake, Ivory, Petal Pink, Soft Suede, Sweet Sorbet and Tahitian Tide Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Sweet Sorbet mat and the to the inside of the Sahara Sand card base.

Stampin' Up! Kindest Gnomes Birthday 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the images from the Kindest Gnomes stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and colored them the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of Happy Forest Friends DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Soft Seedlings CAS Thinking of You

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. I hope your weekend is going well. I’ll be at the dog bakery all day today, hopefully getting to give visiting puppies treats.

For today’s card I did the Baby Wipe Technique. For me, fall cards are perfect for this technique. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Soft Seedlings Cling Stamp Set along with the Stampin’ Up! Very Best Occasions Cling Stamp Set for my card today.

I started by taking a baby wipe and folding it in half and placing it in one of my stamp cases. I added drops of Crushed Curry, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, Rich Razzleberry and Sweet Sorbet Ink Refills, making sure to fill in most of the open spaces. The ink drops will run into each other once you press you stamp into it.

I stamped the leaf image from the Soft Seedlings stamp set on the top of a Basic White card front. I stamped the sentiment from the Soft Seedlings stamp set on the bottom of the panel in Tuxedo Black Ink.

I adhered the Basic White card front to a Pumpkin Pie mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to a Basic White Thick card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I tied a small bow using the Black Baker’s Twine from the Baker’s Twine Essential Pack and adhered it to the leaf stem using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Very Best Occasions stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I reinked the leaf image from the Soft Seedlings stamp set using the same inked baby wipe and stamped the leaf image on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Pumpkin Pie 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 stamped the leaf image from the Soft Seedlings stamp set using the same inked baby wipe that I used for the card. you can see that you can stamp over and over and get different images each time.

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

Stampin’ Up! Hello Harvest 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’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 Stampin’ Up! Hello Harvest Bundle, along with the Stampin’ Up! Very Best Occasions Cling Stamp Set and the Rustic Harvest Designer Series Paper for my card today.

Out Theme this week is Designer Series Paper.

I started by adhering a panel of Rustic Harvest DSP to a Cajun Craze card base. I adhered a strip of the Rustic Harvest DSP to a Cajun Craze mat and then to the bottom of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the banner from the Stampin’ Up! Hello Harvest Cling Stamp Set. I inked just the banner using my Cajun Craze Stampin’ Write Marker. I then stamped the sentiment from the Hello Harvest stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink inside the banner. I cut the banner out using my Rustic Pumpkin Dies.

I adhered the banner to the bottom of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Amber Gems from the Leaf Label & Amber Gems Combo Pack.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Very Best Occasions stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the pumpkin image from the Hello Harvest stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom of the panel and colored it using my Cajun Craze and Mossy meadow Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a strip of the Rustic Harvest DSP to the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Basic Black mat and then to the inside of the Cajun Craze card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the pumpkin image from the Hello Harvest stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and colored it using my Cajun Craze and Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of Rustic Harvest 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. Now that you’ve seen my card, take a minute to hop through and see everyone’s projects today.
