Stampin’ Up! Enjoy The Moment Sneak Peek

Good Friday Morning! Today am sharing a sneak peek of a card that uses the new Stampin’ Up! Enjoy The Moment cling stamp set from the upcoming January – June 2021 Mini Catalog. My card is CASE’d from one that Melody Hyde presented at the Stampin’ Up! OnStage@Home event a few weeks back. While Melody used new designer series paper, I paired the stamp set with the In Good Taste DSP. You can find the currently available supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I embossed a panel of Pretty Peacock with the Tasteful Textile 3D embossing folder and adhered it to the front of a Pretty Peacock card base. I used two sizes of the Stitched Rectangles Dies to cut the wood grained and the gesso canvas papers from the In Good Taste designer series paper. I stamped the small seed pods from the upcoming Stampin’ Up! Enjoy The Moment cling stamp set in Crumb Cake ink randomly across the die cut wood grained paper.

I stamped the large seed pod from the Stampin’ Up! Enjoy The Moment stamp set in Crumb Cake ink on the die cut gesso canvas DSP panel. I colored it with Crumb Cake and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends. I brushed some Pool Party Stampin’ Blends on the right side of the pod like a shadow and used the Color Lifter to blend the line. I adhered the In Good Taste paper panels to the card front with liquid glue.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Enjoy The Moment stamp set in Crumb Cake ink on a Whisper White strip and cut it out with the Tasteful Labels die. I folded a length of sheer Pool Party ribbon and adhered it behind the label. I popped it on the card front with dimensionals. I finished off the card front with blue sequins.

I stamped the seed pod from the Stampin’ Up! Enjoy The Moment stamp set in Crumb Cake ink on a small panel of the gesso canvas DSP and colored it to match the front. I stamped the little seed pods on a small panel of the wood grained DSP. I adhered the little panels of the In Good Taste DSP to the lower corner of a Whisper white panel and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

A cute little nature themed note card! The In Good Taste designer series papers have so many different textures that coordinate beautifully with nature themed stamp sets like the new Stampin’ Up! Enjoy The Moment stamp set. With all the different images and sweet sentiments, this stamp set belongs on every wish list for the upcoming January – June 2021 Mini Catalog!

Stampin’ Up! Press On Good Day Card

Good Morning! Today I’m sharing a card that I made for World Card Making Day with the Stampin’ Up! Press On stamp set. This is a cute stamp set and is perfect for making coffee themed cards for coffee lovers with sentiments expressing thanks, encouragement and sending well wishes. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

Make the cup using paper piecing techniques, stamping the In Good Taste designer series papers with the Stampin’ Up! Press On coffee cup in Early Espresso ink. Cut the pieces out with paper snips and adhere them to a coffee cup stamped on Whisper White and fussy cut. Top the cup with a lid fussy cut from Whisper White.

Cut a Whisper White panel with the third largest Stitched So Sweetly scalloped rectangle die and stamp the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Press On cling stamp set in Crumb Cake ink. Adhere the cup with dimensionals. Add a silver metallic pearl.

Adhere the strip of wood grained In Good Taste DSP to the panel of stone tile DSP and adhere it to the front of an Early Espresso card base. Wrap Linen thread around the seam twice and make a bow near the bottom of the card. Stamp the coffee beans from the Stampin’ Up! Press On stamp set in Early Espresso on the stone tiles and Pop the coffee cup panel on the card front with dimensionals.

Stamp part of the cups from the Stampin’ Up! Press On stamp set in Early Espresso ink on a Whisper White panel. Color the cups with Misty Moonlight, Crumb Cake and Gray Granite Stampin’ Blends. Stamp the sentiment in Crumb cake ink and trim the bottom with a strip of stone tile In Good Taste DSP. Adhere the panel to the inside of the card.

The Facebook Live video where I made the card is in the Inkin’ Krew World Card Making Day group. Later today, I’ll try to link it up to my business Facebook page so you can view it there. I also plan to edit the video and post a shortened version on my YouTube Channel by the end of the week.

Stampin’ Up! Field Journal Birthday Card

Good Morning! Today I have a simple masculine birthday card made with the Stampin’ Up! Field Journal Cling stamp set. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I stamped the duck from the Stampin’ Up! Field Journal stamp set in Early Espresso ink on a Whisper White panel. I cut it out with the largest stitched oval from the Stitched Shapes Dies. I colored it with Bermuda Bay, Cinnamon Cider, Soft Suede, Crumb Cake and Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends. I colored the ground with Old Olive Stampin’ Blends and the background with Pool Party Stampin’ Blends.

I embossed a panel of Mossy Meadow card stock with the Old World Paper 3D embossing folder. I adhered an antique corner to each corner with a glue dot. I adhered a panel of World of Good specialty designer series paper to an Early Espresso mat. I adhered a strip of In Good Taste designer series paper on top.

I adhered the embossed Mossy Meadow panel on the layered DSP panel and popped the art panel on top with dimensionals. I popped the panel on the front of a Crumb Cake card base.

I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Pallet Thoughts cling stamp set in Early Espresso ink on a Whisper White panel. I stamped the plant from the Stampin’ Up! Field Journal stamp set in Crumb Cake ink after stamping off twice. I trimmed the bottom with a strip of World of Good DSP to the bottom and adhered it to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Field Journal stamp set is like a walk in the woods. The pretty line drawn images are great for coloring and would make a great card for any nature lover.

Stampin’ Up! Waterfront and Rooted in Nature Birthday Card

Good Morning! I do not have a sneak peek this morning, it is an oldies but goodies kind of day. I made a nature themed masculine birthday card with the Stampin’ Up! Waterfront and Stampin’ Up! Rooted in Nature stamp sets. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I started by stamping the mountains from the Stampin’ Up! Waterfront stamp set in Basic Gray ink across a panel of light wood grained In Good Taste designer series paper. I masked part of the mountain and stamped the sun in Daffodil Delight ink. I removed the mask and stamped the trees in Garden Green ink and some grass using the double stroke stamp in Pear Pizzazz ink. I finished off the mountain scene by stamping the birds from the Mountain Air stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

I stamped the tree from the Stampin’ Up! Rooted in Nature stamp set using my stamparatus. I inked up the trunk using Soft Suede ink and stamped. Then, I inked the leaves using Garden Green ink and stamped again. The stamparatus gives me the precision of stamping in the same place with different ink colors. Then I cut the tree out with the coordinating die from the Nature’s Roots Dies.

I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Itty Bitty Birthdays cling stamp set in Basic Gray ink on the right side of a Very Vanilla strip. I adhered it to a Basic Gray mat and then adhered it to the stamped DSP panel with Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the stamped layered In Good Taste DSP panel to a Basic Gray mat and then popped it on the front of a Gray Granite card base with dimensionals. I adhered the die cut tree to the card front with dimensionals.

I stamped the mountains, sun and tree on the bottom corner of a Very Vanilla panel using the same colors as the card front, except that I stamped each off first so it would be lighter. I stamped the sentiment from the Many Mates stamp set in Basic Gray ink in the top portion of the panel and added more birds next to it. I adhered a strip of the light wood grain DSP to the bottom of the panel and then adhered it to a Basic Gray mat. I adhered it to the inside of the card with Stampin’ Seal.

I was pleased that the image stamped so well on the light wood grain DSP! And it was nice to use some old favorite stamp sets again – especially with some new DSP! I bet there are other oldies but goodies, even retired ones, that would go great with the In Good Taste designer series paper!
