Stampin’ Up! Seasonal Pleasant Pheasants Thanksgiving

Good morning!  Happy beginning-of-a-short-week!  And almost-Thanksgiving!  Soon after this post goes live, I’ll be on my way to Huntsville for a meeting or two today and tomorrow.  Then home to start cooking for T-day!  I have deviled eggs, mashed potatoes and a couple of desserts on my to-do list.  And we’re going to be smoking the turkey!  Fingers crossed on that one!

If you were able to join me last night for my FB live, I appreciate you spending part of your weekend with me!  If not, but you’d like to see the replay, here ’tis on YouTube!

My card looks more complicated than it was – which is awesome, right?  Thanks to the pretty Toil & Trouble DSP, Woodland TIEF (and a little bleach), a few leaves from the Seasonal Layers Framelits and some sentiments from Pleasant Pheasants – all the tools were there.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from this week’s Tuesday Morning Sketches challenge!

And the fall flavor was inspired by this photo from TGIF Challenges!

I started with a piece of Early Espresso card stock that I embossed in the Woodland TIEF.  Then, with a Squares Layering Framelits die, I cut a diamond shape in the middle.

To bring out the details in the trees, I used an old Blender Pen and a little household bleach – painting the spots that I wanted to lighten and bring out.  NOTE:  be sure your crafting spot is ventilated well when you use bleach, okay? 😉

Then I adhered a piece of Toil & Trouble DSP behind the panel with Liquid Glue and matted the whole thing on Crushed Curry to create the card front.

I pulled out the Frosted Bouquet Framelits and cut a couple of Cajun Craze berries.

For the leaves, the Colorful Seasons stamp set and Seasonal Layers Thinlits did the work.  I stamped a couple of detailed leaves in Early Espresso on Crushed Curry and cut them with their matching die.  Then I used Light and Dark Pumpkin Pie and Cajun Craze Stampin’ Blends – plus the Color Lifter – to color them in.  To create the look I was after, I carefully crumbled each leaf and then straightened it out!

I also fussy cut two pumpkins from the Toil & Trouble DSP.  Finally, I cut two Copper Foil detailed leaves with that Seasonal Layers Framelits die.

For the sentiment, I used the Pleasant Pheasants set and stamped it in Cajun Craze on a strip of Whisper White. I snipped a banner end and then edged it with my Cajun Craze Stampin’ Write Marker.

With all the elements ready to go – it was a matter of adding them all in an ever-so-artsy manner with Liquid Glue.  The top pumpkin also has a Stampin’ Dimensional underneath it!

I finished off with a Linen Thread double loop bow (what else would a girl do for this kind of card?!) and a simple bow made from White Solid Baker’s Twine that I colored with my Dark Pumpkin Pie Blend.  I also colored a Pearl Basic Jewel with the Light Pumpkin Pie Blend – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped a second sentiment from Pleasant Pheasants in Cajun Craze on a Whisper White panel.  Over top I added a detailed leaf from Colorful Seasons in stamped-off-once Crushed Curry.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Crushed Curry mat and into my Cajun Craze card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got a few Colorful Seasons leaves in Crushed Curry on the front…

…and I added some more pumpkin-strewn Toil & Trouble DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Pleasant Pheasants really has two of the prettiest fonts in the catalog – love them for the perfect sentiments!  And it’s handy to have Colorful Seasons and the matching Seasonal Layers Thinlits handy for Fall, yes?  Hope you like!

I have a new recruit.

She’s really sweet.

Not sure how creative she’s going to be, though.

And – I fear it’s going to be hard to motivate her to craft.  Even sitting in front of my craft table with all those tempting goodies to play with…she found it hard to stay awake…

She’s sweet and seriously cute – but it kinda put a crimp in my OWN card making plans on Saturday! LOL!

Stampin’ Up! Gorgeous Bloom By Bloom Sneak Peek!

Happy Saturday, y’all!

Hope you’ve got something cool planned for the weekend!  It’s supposed to be gorgeous here so hopefully it’ll dry up a little.  It’s pretty much a soggy mess.  Happy that we don’t have the “snow” phase first!

I have another 2019 Occasions Catalog sneak peek today – is that okay with you??  😉  This one uses the new Bloom By Bloom stamp set and some Happiness Blooms DSP with an assist from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous set.  Take a look-see:

At OnStage, we did a make-and-take with the Bloom By Bloom stamp set…

So – I was excited to make another one – this time of my own design!

The layout for this one comes from the Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

I started with a panel of Whisper White that I embossed in the new Dot To Dot TIEF.  As usual, I cut the panel larger than I needed, embossed it, and cut it down to size.  Then I matted it on a piece of Pineapple Punch card stock.

I created the vertical strip with a piece of the Happiness Blooms DSP, that I adhered with Liquid Glue.  Then I wrapped some Lovely Lipstick ribbon from the All My Love Ribbon Pack, securing it in the back with Glue Dots.

The artwork is a piece of Whisper White card stock on which I used my Stamparatus to stamp the large flower from Bloom By Bloom in Lovely Lipstick.  Then I added the stem and leaves (all on one stamp) in Call Me Clover.

I made a sticky note mask of the large flower and stuck it on top of the stamped image.  Then I stamped more flowers around the image in Pineapple Punch and Calypso Coral.

I added the sentiment from Happy Birthday Gorgeous in Lovely Lipstick at the bottom of the panel.  Then I added the little Bloom By Bloom dots in Calypso Coral.  I matted the panel on Pineapple Punch and popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  And – the card was done.

 

On the inside, I added more Bloom By Bloom flowers and dots in Pineapple Punch and Calypso Coral to a Whisper White panel.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Pineapple Punch mat and into my Lovely Lipstick card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Bloom By Bloom images on the front…

…and some more Happiness Blooms DSP on the envelope flap!

Et Voila!  Another winner from the 2019 Occasions Catalog!  The Bloom By Bloom stamp set and the Happiness Blooms DSP reside are bright and fun – and will be all ready for you to create beautiful projects! You’ll be able to get them all on 3 Jan 19!  Hope you like!

TTFN

P.S.  Here’s a few more sneaky looks!

Bloom By Bloom photopolymer stamp set

Bitty Blooms Punch Pack (which will be available bundled with the stamp set) and the new Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots (in Call Me Clover, Calypso Coral, Lovely Lipstick, Night of Navy and Pineapple Punch)

Holiday Items That May Go Away Soon!

There is always a risk of products selling out without enough time to reorder and restock inventory before a catalog lifecycle is over. When this does happen, it is usually caused by a higher-than-forecasted demand. However, as we upgraded our inventory management system, there were system communication issues with the current holiday catalog and we have just determined that several products are at high risk of early depletion.

We want to share the list of products with you now so you can plan accordingly as you prepare for the holidays.

These products are running low and additional shipments will not be received before the end of the catalog sales period!

  • SNOWFLAKES & STARS WIRE ELEMENTS (item 147819)
  • SANTA’S SIGNPOST FRAMELITS DIES (item 147911)
  • CHICKEN WIRE ELEMENTS (item 147807)
  • ALPINE SPORTS THINLITS DIES (item 147916)
  • SINCERELY SANTA PROJECT KIT (item 148029)
  • FESTIVE FARMHOUSE COTTON TWINE (item 147888)
  • 5/8″ STRIPED BURLAP TRIM (item 147889)
  • DETAILED LEAVES THINLITS DIES (item 147921)
  • IN THE WOODS FRAMELITS DIES (item 147919)*
  • DETAILED DEER THINLITS DIES (item 147915)*
  • GALVANIZED BUTTONS (item 147891)
  • GALVANIZED CLIPS (item 147806)
  • TAKEOUT THINLITS DIES (item 147927)
  • SWIRLS & CURLS TEXTURED IMPRESSIONS EMBOSSING FOLDER (item 147923)*
  • TRANQUIL TIDE 1/4″ VELVET RIBBON (item 147802)
  • REAL RED 3/8″ MIXED SATIN RIBBON (item 147894)
  • MERRY CHRISTMAS THINLITS DIES (item 147912)*
  • FARMHOUSE FRAMELITS DIES (item 147922)

We don’t know when these products will go out of stock, but it’s possible some may run out as early as next week!

We have also indicated with an asterisk (*) which of these products will carry over into a future catalog.  So those items can be ordered at a later date.

We are working to fix the system communication errors to avoid similar problems in the future. Thank you for your patience.

PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT!  If you’ve got any of the items on the list above in your wish list and you’ve been waiting to get them – this would be a good time to go ahead and get them ordered!!  If you wait, there’s a very good chance that the items will sell out and you won’t be able to get them!  And, even though the carry over items will continue to be available for sale, once the current inventory is depleted, the new supply won’t be back in stock in time for Christmas.

So head over to my Online Store now and get the items that you want while you still can. 🙂


Holiday Catalog Items No Longer Available

Sales for the following products have exceeded our forecast and are continuing strong, resulting in a large number of backorders. Because backorders are so costly, we have made the decision to shut these items off effective immediately. Since these products cannot be sent from the manufacturer in time for the holidays, these item numbers will not be reactivated.

150095: Santa’s Workshop Cards You Can Make It Bundle
147905: Santa’s Workshop Memories & More Card Pack
147815: Santa’s Workshop Memories & More Cards & Envelopes

147816: Joyous Noel Specialty Designer Series Paper

Good morning, y’all!  Here ’tis Friday again!  I LOVE a short week so much!!  Wish they were all like this!

I have a cute little card to share with you today with another sneak peek from the Occasions Catalog.  This one uses a set called Amazing Life – and it’s got the most perfect birthday sentiments!  Take a look-see:

My layout for this one is from the sketch side of this week’s Fusion challenge.

And the colors come from The Paper Players.

Here’s a little gander at the stamp set itself:  Amazing Life!

Cute, huh?  You’ll be able to pick this one up in January (starting on the 3rd!)!

I started with a panel of Whisper White and added a strip of So Saffron Subtles DSP to the side with Liquid Glue.  Then I matted it all on Poppy Parade.

Using my Stamparatus, I stamped the sentiment from Amazing Life in Poppy Parade.  Over that, in So Saffron, I added the sweet little cake image.  Then I added some little flourishes in Gray Granite.

I used my Poppy Parade Stampin’ Write Marker to lightly color the candle on the cake and my So Saffron Marker to add little teensy dots inside the word “cake”.

I wrapped some Gray Granite 1/2″ Textured Weave Ribbon around the panel, securing it in the back with Glue Dots.  I wrapped a shorter length around the ribbon and tied it snugly to create a “faux bow” – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a second sentiment from Amazing Life in Poppy Parade to a Whisper White panel, and stamped the cake over it in So Saffron.  Then I colored the candle and added a Gray Granite flourish or two!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Poppy Parade mat and into my So Saffron card base, popped the card base on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another So Saffron cake on the front…

…and more of the So Saffron Subtles DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  How fun is this Amazing Life stamp set?  I love that sentiment – life really IS too short to say no (at least ALL the time!) to cake!  Add this one to your list for 3 Jan, y’all!  Hope you like!

Snowflake Showcase Bundle Updated!

I was just informed that the White Velvet Sheets – a part of the Snowflake Showcase – has been discontinued.  As advertised at the beginning of the promotion, these products were all “while supplies last”.  And once they run out – they’re not being re-ordered.

What does that mean for my special bundles?  Well – I’ve updated the product list to remove the White Velvet Sheets, and reduced the price accordingly.

But folks – if you’ve been thinking you’d wait until the very end of the promotion period – I’d strongly recommend that you NOT wait another moment!  This has been a WILDLY popular set of goodies – and I’d hate for you to miss out.  The stamp sets, thinlits and trinkets are still available – but…there’s no telling for how much longer!

You can click on the picture above to see a fun video showcasing the products.  Then check out the flyer below to take a closer look-see!

Here’s the deets:

  • No limits apply during the customer sales period. So be quick while supplies last!
  • Products available while supplies last from November 1, 2018 until November 30, 2018. This means products will only be available until November 30 or while supplies last, whichever comes first. If a product’s supply is depleted before November 30, it will no longer be available for purchase.
  • Items may be purchased in any type of order.
  • Items may be included as part of a Starter Kit!!  Join now!
  • Ordering deadline:  November 30, 2018; 11:50 PM (MT)

Here’s the updated special money-saving bundle!

Stamps-N-Lingers Snowflake Showcase Bundle:

If you purchased the entire Showcase separately, you’d pay about $98!  That includes shipping and a wag at the taxes.

Snow is Glistening – $21
Happiness Surrounds – $17
Snowfall Thinlits – $39
White Velvet Paper – $5  NO LONGER INCLUDED!
Snowflake Trinkets – $8

With my special bundle – you’re only going to pay $80 (new price!) – all in!

And – when you order the bundle, you’ll get a set of Whisper White Note Cards & Envelopes for FREE!  So –  you’ll be ready to start creating right away!  

Get the entire Showcase and the notecards and envelopes – shipped directly to you for free –  and save a pretty penny, too!

In the spirit of expectation management, with the significant savings you get with this bundle, I won’t be able to give y’all Peppermints when you order them.

These offers are available to anyone – but I can only ship to addresses (not Post Office boxes!) in the United States or APO Military. 🙂

Thanks for your understanding, y’all!

It’s easy to order!  Fill out the form below.  I’ll send you a PayPal Invoice right away and then, on 1 Nov, place your order first thing and get your wonderful Snowflake Showcase goodies on their way to your door!  Easy Peasy!

Happy shopping!

Finn Fan Fix

It appears that Finn has decided – permanently! – that the sofa is fair game for him, too.  Remember?  If the cat…then the dog!

So, bowing to the inevitable (he totally knows how to “work” me), I put a blanket on one end.

For him.

But – remember your if-then’s from school.  If it’s good for the cat then it’s good for the dog?

Well – that little logic trail goes both ways.  If’s it’s good for the DOG then…

Hey guys – Stampin’ Up! made an announcement about the continued availability of some products from the Holiday Catalog and I wanted to pass it along to you for your planning and action!  Here ’tis:

***********

There is always a risk of products selling out without enough time to reorder and restock inventory before a catalog lifecycle is over. When this does happen, it is usually caused by a higher-than-forecasted demand. However, as we upgraded our inventory management system, there were system communication issues with the current holiday catalog and we have just determined that several products are at high risk of early depletion.

We want to share the list of products with you now so you can plan accordingly as you prepare for the holidays.

  • SNOWFLAKES & STARS WIRE ELEMENTS (item 147819)

Good morning!!  Hard to believe it’s already….HAAAWWWWMPPP DAY!!  Whoo-hoo!  And – one week from tomorrow it’s time for your stretchy pants, huh?  Y’all doing turkey?  Ham?  Turkey AND Ham?!?

We’re in the turkey and ham camp.  We’re going to smoke a turkey this year and let Honeybaked do their thing for the ham.  And then we’re going to try to keep the rest of the over-abundance to a minimum.

I don’t hold out much hope! 😉

Also – I had this…
