Stampin’ Up! Well Said with Trimming The Town Welcome Card

Good Morning! Do you have new neighbors? Well I have the perfect card for the occasion – a Welcome card made with the wonderful Trimming the Town designer series paper and the Stampin’ Up! Well Said 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.

Today’s card is inspired by the simply perfect #TGIFC290 sketch at TGIF Challenges:

I adhered a panel of Trimming the Town designer series paper to a Whisper White mat and then to the front of a Pear Pizzazz card base. I cut a stitched oval from Pool Party card stock using the Stitched Shapes dies. I cut the top of a snow bank with the Home Together Dies and cut the bottom with the same stitched oval die and adhered the snow bank to the oval.

I cut a house from the Trimming the Town DSP with a coordinating die from the Home Together Dies and cut two trees from the same paper – isn’t it nice when the dies match the designer series paper? I used the house die to cut a Whisper White House and adhered it to the back of the DSP house. I adhered the large tree to the oval and the small tree to the house. I adhered the oval to the card front and popped the house on the oval with dimensionals.

I adhered a strip of Adhesive sheets to the back of a strip of Old Olive card stock and cut two ‘welcome’ words with the Well Written dies. I peeled the cover off of one of the words and adhered the two words together and peeled the cover off and adhered the word to the card front.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Well Said stamp set in Old Olive ink on a Whisper White panel. I fussy cut some small houses from another sheet of Trimming the Town designer series paper and adhered them to the bottom of the panel and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

Wouldn’t this card make you feel welcome to a new neighborhood? The Trimming the Town designer series paper has many wonderful Winter images that make beautiful cards. The small houses perfectly match the large houses, so they were perfect for placing at the bottom of the inside panel of this card. And the Stampin’ Up! Well Said and Well Written stamps and dies coordinate perfectly!

Stampin’ Up! Summer Days Miss You Card

Good Morning! Today I have a card made with the Stampin’ Up! Summer Days cling stamp set. This is a Host Cling stamp set that is an exclusive purchase with Host Dollars. 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 tree-lined road stamp from the Stampin’ Up! Summer Days stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a Whisper White panel. I colored it with Stampin’ Blends – Balmy Blue, Soft Suede, Crumb Cake, Granny Apple Green, Old Olive and the Color Lifter. I cut out the image using the largest square from the Stitched Shapes Dies and adhered it to a Mossy Meadow mat.

I adhered a panel of wood grained In Good Taste designer series paper to the front of a Cinnamon Cider card base. I embossed a panel of Sahara Sand card stock with the Greenery embossing folder and adhered it to the card front. I wrapped a length of Linen Thread around the card front three times and tied a bow on the right side and popped the stamped panel on with dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Well Said cling stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on an Old Olive panel and adhered it to a Mossy Meadow mat before adhering it to the card front with Stampin’ Seal. I used glue dots to adhere the wood leaf from the In Good Taste Elements to the label.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the left side of the tree-lined road stamp from the Stampin’ Up! Summer Days stamp set in stamped off Sahara Sand ink on the lower right corner of a Whisper White panel. I adhered a strip of the In Good Taste DSP to the bottom and adhered it to the inside of the card with Stampin’ Seal.

The Stampin’ Up! Summer Days stamp set is a Host stamp set. This means that it is specially priced stamp set that can only be purchased with Stampin’ Rewards Host Dollars that are earned through hosting a party or workshop or by placing an individual qualifying order.

Stampin’ Up! Well Dressed Anniversary Card

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Today I am all about Anniversaries! Today is the 1 year anniversary of my first blog post and I have a masculine anniversary card made with the Stampin’ Up! Well Dressed cling stamp set for my DH to celebrate our 44th anniversary this weekend. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

The layout for today’s card was inspired by the wonderful sketch at Fab Friday 185. Here is their sketch:

I stamped the tie from the Stampin’ Up! Well Dressed Sale-A-Bration cling stamp set on a panel of Whisper white in Night of Navy ink. Next to it, I stamped the wing tip shoe in Early Espresso ink and the fountain pen in Garden Green ink. Whew, good thing that the background plaid had green so I could add a touch of green for St. Patrick’s Day! I adhered the panel to a Night of Navy mat. I stamped the fedora hat in Soft Suede ink on a scrap of Crumb Cake card stock and fussy cut it out with my paper snips. Then I adhered it to stamped square with multipurpose liquid glue.

I cut a panel of the wood grained paper from the Pressed Petals specialty designer series paper and adhered it to a Soft Suede mat. I adhered the stamped panel on top with dimensionals. I tied a length of denim ribbon and adhered it to the side with glue dots. I stamped the Happy Anniversary label with stamps from the Well Said cling stamp set in Night of Navy ink on a Whisper White panel. I adhered it to a Soft Suede mat. I adhered the label to the panel with dimensionals under the bottom edge and multipurpose liquid glue under the top. I finished off the panel with a gold metallic pearl tie tack!

I adhered a panel of the blue plaid Country Club designer series paper to a Night of Navy card base. I adhered the decorated art panel to the card front with multipurpose liquid glue.

I stamped the sentiment from the Well Said stamp set in Night of Navy on a Whisper White panel. I stamped another fountain pen from the Stampin’ Up! Well Dressed stamp set in Garden Green ink and trimmed the bottom with more of the Country Club DSP. I adhered it to the inside of the card with snail.

The Stampin’ Up! Well Dressed cling stamp set is a Sale-A-Bration stamp set that is FREE with a $50 purchase. It is part of the Sale-A-Bration Second Release and will be available through the end of the month or until supplies last.

I don’t think we’ll be doing anything special this weekend for our anniversary, but at least he’ll get a nice handmade card!

As for my blog, in the past year, I have really enjoyed myself. I managed to write 168 blog posts and I finally hit 200 followers. I am so grateful for all of my supporters! On to year 2!

Bloom by Bloom Congratulations

Today’s card is a feminine congratulations card that is bold and beautiful using the Bloom by Bloom stamp set.

Using thick Whisper White as a card base, I trimmed a piece of the Happiness Blooms Memories and More card pack to make the background. On a panel of Whisper White cardstock, I stamped the bold tulip flower in Lovely Lipstick and Garden Green. I matted it with Night of Navy cardstock and used the Night of Navy baker’s twine to wrap the panel and tie a bow.

I used clear Wink of Stella to add some shimmer to the flower and used dimensionals to pop the flower panel on the card base.

I cut a banner from a piece of Night of Navy scrap and stamped the congratulations greeting from the Well Said stamp set in Versamark ink and sprinkled it with white embossing powder and heat set.

I used Whisper White cardstock for the inside of the card, trimmed it with the remaining Happiness Blooms Memories and More card and a floral sticker and matted it in Night of Navy before adding it to the card base.

Both the Bloom and Bloom stamp set and Happiness Blooms Memories and More card pack are on the retirement list, so we will have to say good bye to them soon. Before then, I’m going to enjoy using them to make bold, strong and vibrant floral cards.

Thanks for visiting!
