Stampin’ Up Pressed Petals Thank You

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Did anyone do anything fun?  I had to work, my usual, but it was a beautiful weekend here.  I was able to get a nice walk in and enjoy the weather.  Leaves are starting to fall here, and I have to admit, I’m not ready yet.

For today I have a pretty quick and easy card for you where I let the Designer Series Paper do all the work for me.  I was inspired by a team member of mine, Shirley G., who made this card and I thought it would be perfect for my Stamp Camp class.  You can see her card here.   Here is my card.

I started by adhering a panel of the Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper to a Rococo Rose mat using Snail.  I cut the sentiment out of Mossy Meadow card stock using my Well Written Dies and adhered it to the center of the matted panel using my Fine Tip Glue Pen.

I adhered a panel of Rococo Rose and Pressed Petals Specialty DSP to a Mossy Meadow card base, both on angles going opposite ways, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the matted artwork to the center of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I tied a knot using my Rococo Rose 1/2″ Scalloped Lined Ribbon and adhered it to the bottom of the artwork using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Well Said Cling Stamp Set in Mossy Meadow Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I adhered a strip of the Pressed Petals Specialty DSP to the bottom of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Mossy Meadow card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Tp finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the leafy image from the Stampin’ Up Path of Petals Photopolymer Stamp Set in Mossy Meadow Ink on the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of the Pressed Petals Specialty 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. Tomorrow is Blog Hop Day, so try to stop by and hop around to see everyone’s projects. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up Ride With Me Birthday Card

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers and Happy Labor Day to you all.  Hope you are getting to enjoy a day off.

For today’s card I played with a new set to me called Ride With Me.  I had to make a card for a little boy turning 2 who loves trucks.  Here’s my card.

My card joined in with Cardz 4 Guys Challenge #227  Their theme is ‘CELEBRATE’

I started by cutting out the rainbow frame using my Stitched Rectangle Dies.  I cut  the Pumpkin Pie frame using the 3rd & 4th die (starting from the largest and counting down).  I cut the Pineapple Punch frame using the 4th & 5th die.  I cut the Granny Apple Green frame using the 5th & 6th die and I cut the Blueberry Bushel rectangle using the 6th die.  I arranged them all together and adhered them to a Real Red card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  On a small piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the truck image from the Stampin’ Up Ride With Me Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the truck in using my Light Basic Black, Gray Granite, Pineapple Punch and Real Red Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I fussy cut the truck out using my Paper Snips.  I stamped the balloon image from the Ride With Me stamp set on a small piece of Whisper White cardstock using my Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored them in using my Balmy Blue, Granny Apple Green, Pineapple Punch and Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut them out using the Truck Ride Dies.

I adhered the truck and the balloons to the bottom of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Using my Hand-Lettered Prose Dies, I cut out the letters in Whisper White cardstock.  I adhered them above the truck using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a thin strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the Happy Birthday from the Stampin’ Up Well Said Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I adhered to the top of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the truck image from the Ride With Me stamp set in Real Red Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel stamping off once.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Itty Bitty Birthdays Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink over the truck image.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Blueberry Bushel mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Real Red card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the truck image from the Ride With Me stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored it in the same as I did for the card front.  I stamped the balloon image from the Ride With Me stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink across the envelope flap and colored them in the same as I did for the card front.

Thank you for taking the time today to stop by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try.  Enjoy your day off.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up Woven Heirlooms Anniversary Card

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How is everyone doing today?  Did you all have a nice weekend?

For today I have an anniversary card with a bit of a vintage look.  I used the Stampin’ Up Woven Heirlooms Bundle to make it.  Here’s my card.

I started by adhering a panel of Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper to a Blackberry Bliss card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Using the Heirlooms Frames Dies and 3D Embossing Folder, I cut an oval frame out of Smoky Slate cardstock and embossed it with the coordinating embossing folder.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Woven Heirlooms Cling Stamp Set in Blackberry Bliss Ink on a small panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I stamped the scrolls from the Woven Heirloom stamp set in Blackberry Bliss Ink above and below the sentiment  I cut the sentiment out using the Layering Ovals Dies.

I adhered the sentiment oval to the card front using Snail.  I adhered the frame over the sentiment using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I made a small Blackberry Bliss bow made from the Nature’s Twine and adhered it to the frame using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Well Said Cling Stamp Set in Blackberry Bliss Ink in the  center or a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the small scrolls from the Woven Heirlooms stamp set in Blackberry Bliss in all 4 corners.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Blackberry Bliss card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the scroll images from the Woven Heirlooms stamp set in Blackberry Bliss Ink on the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of Perennial Essence 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 Sailing Home High Tide

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  How has your week started off?  I can’t believe we are at the end of July already.  Before you know if August will be here and the summer will almost be over.  Summer is my favorite time of the year.  It’s light out until after 8pm and it gets light earlier in the morning.  I just love the hot summer days.

For today’s card I’ve done a lot of sponging and a bit of the masking technique for you.  I’ve combined the Stampin’ Up High Tide Photopolymer Stamp Set  with the Stampin’ Up Sailing Home Cling Stamp Set.  Here’s my card.

I’ve played along with a couple challenges with my card today.  First off is the As You See It Challenge #205.  Here is their challenge.

Next I played along with the Festive Friday Challenge #0039.  Here is their challenge.

I started by stamping the sand image from the High Tide stamp set in Crumb Cake and Petal Pink Inks on the bottom of a Whisper White panel.  I added the seagrass image from the High Tide stamp set on the beach I created.  Next I stamped the lighthouse image from the Sailing Home stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink on top of the sand.  I stamped the lighthouse again on a small panel of Whisper White cardstock in Sahara Sand Ink and cut it out using the Smooth Sailing Dies and set it aside.

I stamped the light beam image from the High Tide stamp set in So Saffron Ink coming out from the top of the lighthouse.  I masked the lighthouse and light beam stamped images using a Post-It note that I fussy cut the images from.  I added the water image from the High Tide stamp set using Balmy Blue, Blueberry Bushel and Seaside Spray Inks.  I then started my sponging.  I started from the water and worked my way up.  I started with Daffodil Delight. Mango Melody and Pumpkin Pie Inks.  I then continued moving up using Flirty Flamingo, Highland Heather Inks and ended with Night of Navy Ink.  After I was all finished sponging the background I removed the masked images and adhered the cut out lighthouse on top of the stamped lighthouse using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I stamped the seagull image from the High Tide stamp set in Basic Gray Ink.

On a small piece of Vellum cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the High Tide stamp set in Blueberry Bushel Ink.  I immediately sprinkled the vellum with Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I adhered the vellum sentiment using Glue Dots.  I adhered the artwork to a Blueberry Bushel card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the lighthouse image from the Sailing Home stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink, stamping off once, in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Well Said Cling Stamp Set in Blueberry Bushel Ink over the top of the lighthouse.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Blueberry Bushel card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the lighthouse image from the Sailing Home stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped the walking seagulls image from the High Tide stamp set in Basic Gray Ink on the envelope front and added a little of the sand image from the High Tide stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink below the seagulls.  I stamped the flying seagulls from the High Tide stamp set in Basic Gray Ink on 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 Floral Essence Thank You Card

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Did anyone do anything fun?  I went for a ‘walk’ with my husband and daughter to Duke Foundation which is right near where I live.  There are beautiful gardens, landscaping and waterfalls throughout the foundation.  There are bridges that go over different lakes on the property, one in particular leads to a meditation garden which is simply gorgeous.  Our walk ended up being over 3 hours and 7 1/2 miles long.

For today’s card I used a few different stamp sets.  I picked one for my focal image, one for the stripes and 2 different ones for the sentiments.  I like mixing stamps set on cards to give it a different look sometimes.  I was pretty happy how my card came out and all I used was Stamp, Ink and Paper, the basics to card making.   Here’s my card.

My card was inspired by 2 challenges.  First was the Colour & Sketch Challenge #326.  Here are their colors.

The other one that inspired me was the Just Add Ink Challenge #462.  Here is their sketch.

I started by stamping the sketched flower from the Stampin’ Up Floral Essence Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I stamped the solid flowers from the Floral Essence stamp set on either side of the sketched flower in Gorgeous Grape Ink using the masking technique.  I stamped the leaves from the Floral Essence stamp set around the flowers in Mossy Meadow Ink.  I stamped the center of the flowers in Sahara Sand Ink stamping off once.  I colored the sketched flower in using my Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blends Markers and my Light Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blends Marker to color the leaves.  I adhered the artwork to a Gorgeous Grape mat using Snail.

On a Whisper White card front I stamped the distressed filigree image from the Stampin’ Up Woven Heirlooms Cling Stamp Set using Calypso Coral and Mossy Meadow Inks.  I adhered the card front to a Gorgeous Grape card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the top corner of the artwork, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up New Wonders Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on an angle.  I adhered the matted artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the larger solid flower image from the Floral Essence stamp set in Calypso Coral Ink on the bottom corner of a Whisper White panel. I stamped the smaller solid flower image from the Floral Essence stamp set in Gorgeous Grape Ink, stamping off once, on either side of the Calypso Coral flower.  I stamped the leaves from the Floral Essence stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink around the flowers.  I stamped the flower centers in Sahara Sand Ink stamping off once.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Well Said Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of the Whisper White panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Gorgeous Grape card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the flowers from the Floral Essence stamp set on the envelope front the same way I did on the inner liner.  I stamped the distressed filigree image from the Woven Heirlooms stamp set on the envelope flap the same way I did on the card front.

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

Stampin’ Up Heartland Father’s Day Card

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  How is your week going?  We’ve made it to the half way mark.  Before you know it the weekend will be here.

For today’s card I have a Father’s Day card for you.  I don’t know about you, but Father’s Day kind of snuck up on me.  Here’s my card.

I started with a panel of Soft Suede cardstock and using the 2nd largest oval from the Layering Ovals Dies, I cut an oval out in the center.  I then embossed it using my Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered it using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, to a Sahara Sand card base which I had cut using the 3rd largest oval from the Layering Ovals Dies.

On a small panel of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the tractor image from the Stampin’ Up Heartland Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink.  I cut the image out using the 2nd largest oval from the Stitched Shapes Dies and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut out the work ‘happy’ using the Well Written Dies in Sahara Sand cardstock.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Well Said Cling Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink on a strip of Sahara Sand cardstock.  I adhered the ‘happy’ using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and the sentiment using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals to the right top of the card front.  I wrapped a piece of Linen Thread around the card front through the oval and tied  knot.

On the inside I stamped the barn image from the Heartland stamp set in Soft Suede Ink in the center of a Very Vanilla panel making sure it would show through the oval.  I added a tiny bit of color using my Aqua Painter to the grass and trees.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to the inside of the Sahara Sand card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I stamped the barn image from the Heartland stamp set on the envelope front in Soft Suede Ink.  I stamped the little boy walking with the ducks from the Heartland stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on 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 Just Because CAS Thinking of You Card

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  How is your week going?  We’re halfway through and the weekend is right around the corner.

For today I have a quick and easy card for you using the soon to retire Stampin’ Up Just Because Host Stamp Set.  Here’s my card for today.

I joined in with the Fab Friday sketch challenge #163.  Here is their sketch.

I also played along with Inspire. Create color challenge #043.  Here are their colors.

I started by adhering a panel of the soon to retire Wood Textures Designer Series Paper to a Poppy Parade card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped the one of the images from the Stampin’ Up Just Because Host Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I colored the image in using my Granny Apple Green and Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the artwork to a Granny Apple Green mat uisng Snail.  Host stamp sets can be earned with Stampin’ Rewards which you earn with qualifying parties of orders of $150 or more.  Each catalog has a select few sets that are only available with Stampin’ Rewards.  If you have any questions on how to earn them, please feel free to contact me.

I adhered a strip of Pumpkin Pie cardstock to the back of a banner made from the soon to retire Brights 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper using Snail.  I adhered the banner to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the matted artwork over the banner using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the top of the leafy image from the Just Because Host stamp set on the bottom of a Whisper White panel in Granny Apple Green Ink, stamping off twice.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Well Said Stamp Set in Granny Apple Green Ink in the center of the Whisper White panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Granny Apple Green mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Poppy Parade card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the plant from the Just Because Host stamp set on the envelope front and colored it in the same as I did for the card.  I adhered a piece of the Wood Textures DSP to the envelope flap.

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

Stampin’ Up! has posted their retiring lists for the 2018-19 Annual Catalog and 2019 Occasions Catalog.  Head over to my online store to pick up those retiring items now!  They’re only available while supplies last from now through June 3!

A few notes about the lists:

  • Due to high demand for retiring stamp sets, these items will have guaranteed availability until May 24; all other products are not guaranteed and are available while supplies last only.
  • Order deadline to get the retiring products:  June 3, 2019; 11:50 PM (MT)

Please note, some of the bundle items may be carrying over into the new 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.  However, the bundle pricing will go away, so get them while you can at the discounted price!!

Stampin’ Up! Retirement List Clarification

It looks like every single stamp set from the 2018-19 Annual Catalog is being retired and that isn’t the case, the carryover sets are being transitioned to Cling Mount.

The stamp sets offered in clear-mount or wood-mount in the 2018–2019 annual catalog that are carrying over into the 2019–2020 annual catalog will be offered in clear-mount and/or wood-mount until existing inventory has been depleted or until June 4, 2019 (whichever comes first).

If the inventory is depleted, you will be notified of the automatic switch to cling when placing an order for that stamp set. This means that you may end up purchasing select cling stamp sets (in carryover artwork) before they can be ordered from the catalog!  All carryover rubber stamp sets will be available in cling medium only (with the exception of background stamps in North America) beginning June 4, 2019.

You can download copies of the full retiring lists in PDF Form here:
