Rick's Saturday Simple Stamping Episode 27: Featuring the Above the Clouds Stamp Set

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you another Saturday Simple Stamping Card.  This weeks card features the Above the Clouds stamp set.  This is a super fun and cute stamp set that can be added to anyone's order or Starter kit.  There is a matching punch but we are not using that today.  We are just using the a few of the stamps, ink, cardstock and a tiny strip of Designer Series Paper.  Here's a look at my card.

Above The Clouds Card and Starter Kit Offer

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you a card that you can make using just products that you can get in the Stampin' Up! Starter Kit.  Today's card is a super quick and easy card that as I mentioned you can make with suggested items you can get as part of the Stampin' Up! Starter kit.  Before you place another order you should read this blog post.  I will tell you more about why in just a few minutes, but first I am going to share with you the card I made using only the products that Stampin' Up! suggests in the Starter kit.  Here's a look at the card for today.

Tips & Tricks: 

This is a super quick and easy card that comes together in under 10 minutes or so even with talking and having a good time.  I used four ink pads on today's card (Granny Apple Green, Gorgeous Grape, Melon Mambo, and Coastal Cabana) which are part of the suggested starter kit, along with the Thick whisper white cardstock and coastal cabana cardstock.  I think this is a super cute card that is great for any occasion.  
You may be saying that you don't think that joining Stampin' Up! is for you because you don't have time to do workshops, classes, or anything else.  Well that's one of the great things about joining Stampin' Up! you can do it how you want.  

If YOUR order is more than $100 then your best deal is our Stampin' Up! Starter kit.  For only $99 you can pick $125 all the time, but right now through the end of August you can pick an additional $30 in products in your starter kit.  Then you can shop for yourself for anything else at 20% off.  When you purchase the Starter Kit you have no Obligation only if you want to continue to save money beyond December 2019.  With the Starter Kit purchase you're eligible to preorder from the holiday catalog at 20% savings during our preorder period.  Join my team and have exclusive team perks and savings on events, shares, and more.  I have enjoyed being a demonstrator for the last four years and it's great to not have paid full price for any of my purchases since that day.  

Here you can see all the items that I used and the ones that I hadn't for today's card from the Suggested Starter Kit list.

You're Off to Great Places Above the Clouds!

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you a card that I designed using the Above the Clouds Bundle form the 2019 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog.  As you may know my current online class features the Above the Clouds bundle.  You can find details on that here.  This is a great companion card for that class.  Here's a look at my card.

I stamped the hot air balloons from the Above the Clouds Stamp Set in Night of Navy and Granny Apple green and then punched them out using the matching Hot Air Balloon Punch.  You can get both the punch and the stamp set as a Cost Saving Bundle and you save 10% when you do so.  I then used a piece of the 2019-2021 In Color Designer Series Paper in Pretty Peacock as my background piece.  And, then matted it with a piece of Granny Apple Green Cardstock.  All that was put on a Pretty Peacock Top folding Card base measuring 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/5 (A4 metric 10.5 cm x 29.7 cm scored in half).  I added a piece of whisper white on the inside with a little piece of matching designer series paper.
I then stamped my sentiment on a piece of scrap whisper white and angled the end on one side.  I stamped it in Granny Apple Green ink to match the rest of the card.  To add a little extra dimension I added a few Stampin' dimensionals behind it.
That finishes my card for today, I hope that you have a wonderful fourth of July if you are in the States, and a wonderful day if you are international.  Remember to stay safe and keep your eyes in the sky you just may see one of these fun Hot air balloons soaring over head.
Happy Stampin'
