Stampin' Up! Comforting Thoughts Meets Paradise Palms & By the Dock

Good morning my stamping friends. Today's card is a mixed bag of retired stamp sets and one current. 

The sentiment from Comforting Thoughts is current. The boat from By the Dock and the palm trees from Paradise Palms are both retired. The Ruffled Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder is also retired. The birds from the Adhesive Backed Dragonflies & Birds are current. The inks I used are current...Boho Blue, Bubble Bath, and Lemon Lolly. 

I made this with my card group from Florida last Thursday afternoon! We joined each other via Zoom. I haven't been with them since August 2023 and I miss them. Take a look see at one of the cards I created with the ladies...


So, you've seen mine, now I'll show you the card Sue L. demonstrated. 

We had so much fun figuring out one of the stamp sets she used cuz she couldn't remember. I keep an inventory in Evernote of every stamp set I have ever owned. It was so funny that the boat she used was a set I had given to another woman in our group who had forgotten she had it...lol! She pretended she had sold it...big lol! Miss my cohorts!!

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you'll be back tomorrow for our Happy Inkin' Thursday blog hop.

Stampin' Up! Mediterranean Blooms for Amy's Inkin' Krew Monthly Blog Hop

Hello my stamping friends! Welcome to our monthly Amy's Inkin' Krew hop. Our theme for this month is "Fun Fold" and we can interpret that any way we want and use any product we wish. Here is what I created for it using the Mediterranean Blooms Designer Series Paper along with sentiments from the Comforting Thoughts Stamp Set and Citrus Blooms Dies...

Let's take a closer look and I'll tell you more about it. My fun fold is CASE'd from the one Creative Moments by G created here.

Let's take a closer look, shall we?

I also used dies from the Everyday Details set and Deckled Circles set. I also used Peach Pie Cardstock and 2024-2026 In Color DSP for my base and deckled circle.

The base is 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" and the fold portion is 11" x 5 1/4". You score on the long side at 2", 4", 6", 8", then fold accordion style. Gloria makes it quite clear in her video.

Thank you for stopping by today. Clicking on the "Next" button will take you to Akiko, and clicking on the "Previous" button will take you to Ann Louise. Clicking on the individual names will take you directly to each member's post. Trust me, you're in for a treat no matter what direction you hop!

Let's take a closer look at the simplicity of my card...

It's totally made with A Little Latte Designer Series Paper, with the exception of the sentiment which is from the Latte Love Stamp Set and a die from the Hooray For Surprises Die Set (the strip of hearts).

My card base is Basic Beige cardstock with a mat of Early Espresso cardstock.

Stampin' Up! Bistro Burger Birthday Card

Good morning, peeps. I bet a lot of you are glad it's Friday. Since the weekend is arriving, perhaps you'll be having a picnic? Want a tiny peek at what I'll be having?

Inspired By invited me to go on a picnic with them  and I was inspired by their checkered napkins.  


Hopefully, 
will consider the reds, orange, yellow and greens, bright colors as I did incorporate the stripes on the french fry box and there are a number of layers involved (right side down for the challenge). Let's take a bigger look see...


I was inspired by the card Marcie Besecker created here. Thank you, Marcie!

For the inside...

I made this for my son-in-love who just turned 55. Because I like puns, I opted not to use the "deal" part of the sentiment, I substituted a "dill" pickle. I thank you for stopping by today.
