Stampin’ Up! Online Host Club Openings and a Little Blog Candy!

Hey, y’all!  Happy Saturday!

I’ll be back this evening with a card share – I’m taking part in the Crazy Crafters Blog Hop today – as their Special Guest!  How exciting is that?  So – watch for that post later, okay?

Right now – I’d like to remind y’all about an opportunity to take part in one of my Online Host Clubs!  I’ve had a great response – but…I’ve got a few extra spaces to fill to round out a complete club and accommodate a couple folks who really want to get a club going!  So…if you’ve got a long wish list from this great new catalog – take advantage of a chance to gather up the goodies!

  • A $25.00 minimum order each month

Here’s a look at the host sets in question – remember they can ONLY be purchased with Stampin’ Rewards and you only get THOSE when you place an individual order over $150 OR you’re the “host” on a workshop that goes over $150 (and each month is guaranteed to be a $150 show – minimum!!).

  • You earn TWO Peppermint Reward points for every $25 that you order on your Host Club Orders.  So your $25.00 order earns TWO Peppermints every month, a $50 order earns 4 reward points, a $75 order earns you 6 reward points, etc. You’ll earn at least 12 reward points during your membership, building up your Peppermints towards FREE Items!

During your host month you’re welcome to gather extra orders to increase your host rewards (just give your friends the host code for their orders), it’s that easy! And if you already have 5 other friends that want to do this, you can start your own Exclusive Club!

So – if it sounds like fun, give me a shout at stamps-n-lingers@comcast.net and get a spot reserved!

Now – Blog Candy!

Yesterday was my birthday (I am 29 plus Expedited Overnight Shipping and Handling…) AND I’ve lost 125 pounds – putting me at my goal weight (hey – even my doctor is happy where I am!) and officially putting me in the “maintaining” category, not the “dieting” place!

So – I’m celebrating those two milestones by GIVING away….

Nope – Your eyes are not deceiving you!  I am giving away a complete Stamparatus to one lucky winner! 🙂 🙂 🙂

One might say that…my loss is your gain!

So to speak.

How do you get entered to win?

Leave me a comment ON THIS BLOG POST!  What is your favorite new thing in the catalog?  Could be a Suite – some Designer Paper – or a favored stamp set.  Maybe it’s the Stamparatus!?!  Whatever it is – let me know!

You’ve got until the end of the day on Friday – 29 Jun 18, to leave your comment and be entered to win!  On Saturday morning, the 30th,  I’ll use my handy Random Number Generator to select the lucky winner and let everyone know in that day’s blog post.

Please note, per the Demonstrator rules from Stampin’ Up!, anyone can leave a comment, but I’m only able to ship Stampin’ Up! merchandise to addresses within the United States. Thanks for your understanding and good luck!! 🙂

So – Online Host Club!  Looking for some folks who want to gather goodies and earn free stuff!  And don’t forget to leave me a comment and get entered to win the Stamparatus!

Stampin’ Up! Sending Healing Hugs

Well.  It’s Friday!  Whoo-Hoo!

You made it to the weekend – take a hot second to reach around and pat yourself on the back.

I’ll wait.  🙂

My card today uses a sweet new stamp set called Healing Hugs!  I paired this beauty with some Garden Impressions DSP and…take a look-see:

 

This color scheme was inspired by this week’s Cupcake Inspiration Challenge.

I started with a So Saffron card base and stamped it all over with So Saffron ink using one of the small flower images in the Healing Hugs stamp set.

Next I cut a panel of Garden Impressions DSP in a So Saffron design, and adhered it at a jaunty angle with Liquid Glue.

The next layer is Whisper White and, using So Saffron and Granny Apple Green, I stamped some more of the flowers, the cross-stitched image and some leaves onto the panel.

To create the flower, I inked the large stamp with Powder Pink ink – then I used a Sponge Dauber to add Poppy Parade around different portions of the image – which added some depth and additional color when I stamped it on a piece of Whisper White.  Then I fussy cut the flower.

I used the same technique for the leaves – inking them with Lemon Lime Twist then adding Granny Apple Green around the edges.  I stamped them on Whisper White and fussy cut them as well.

The Healing Hugs sentiment is stamped in Powder Pink on a strip of Whisper White that I bannerized with my Paper Snips and edged with my Powder Pink Stampin’ Write Marker.

I built the collage by adhering the fussy cut leaves with Liquid Glue and popping the flower on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a length of Powder Pink 3/8″ Mini Ruffled Ribbon and one of Whisper White 5/8″ Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon to the bottom of the sentiment banner with Glue Dots, then popped it over the sentiment with Dimensionals and Liquid Glue.  A Powder Pink 2017-2019 In Color Flower Button and small Whisper White Baker’s Twine Bow is adhered with Glue Dots.

I finished the card front with a few So Saffron Share What You Love Artisan Pearls.

The inside of the card got more So Saffron Healing Hugs flowers stamped all over.  Then on the Whisper White liner, I added the same flower image in stamped-off-once So Saffron.  Over top of that is a second Healing Hugs sentiment in Powder Pink.

I matted the panel on the same Garden Impression DSP design that I’d used on the front and then into the card base with Liquid Glue and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got a few more Healing Hugs flowers in So Saffron on the front…

…and the envelope flap got more of the pretty Garden Impressions DSP.

Et Voila!  The Healing Hugs stamp set is so aptly named – just looking at the pretty images and perfect sentiments will feel like a warm hug to the recipient of a card made with this beautiful set!  Hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Tea Room Botanical Bliss for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Happy Thursday, y’all – and welcome to another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!! This is our second month of the Joint Blog Hop between the Happy Inkin’ Thursday and Happy Stampers Blog Hop ladies!  I hope you really enjoy all the inspiration you can get from our talented folks!

I pulled out another new bundle – the Botanical Bliss stamp set, bundled with the gorgeous Botanical Tags Thinlits – and put it over some Tea Room Specialty DSP.  Take a look-see:

For each joint hop, we’re planning to have both a sketch and a color scheme to play with.  We can use the sketch or the color scheme or…both!  Here’s what we worked with this week.

I used the sketch – although I sort of up-ended it.  And I used the color scheme – but had to sub Coastal Cabana for Bermuda Bay…

I also played along with The Paper Players challenge! 🙂

I started by embossing a piece of Tea Room Specialty DSP in the wonderful new Subtle Dynamic TIEF, then I matted it on a panel of Pear Pizzazz card stock for the card front.  I added a piece of Wood Textures DSP, also matted on Pear Pizzazz.

I wrapped some Linen Thread a few times around the card front, securing it in the back with a couple of Glue Dots.

For the tag, I cut a 2″ wide strip of Crumb Cake card stock.  I placed the pretty Botanical Tags Thinlit die at the top of the strip.  Tip – place the top acrylic cutting pad such that it does NOT cover the bottom (straight) edge of the die.  I did that – and got a perfect cut – with no extra “impressions” where the straight part of the die sits.

I used some Crumb Cake ink and stamped the leaves image from the Botanical Bliss stamp set across the bottom of the tag, then I adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I stamped the bird in Fresh Fig on Whisper White and fussy cut him, then cut some leaves from Pear Pizzazz with the dies in the Botanical Tags Thinlits.  They’re all adhered with Liquid Glue.

I stamped the Botanical Bliss sentiment in Coastal Cabana on another piece of the Wooden Textures DSP and cut it with an oval Stitched Shapes Framelits die.  It’s popped on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and I added a leftover Gold heart Metallic Enamel Shape from my stash.

A few embellishments – a length of new Gold 1/8″ Cord, a True Gentleman Button and a double-loop Billie Moan Bow in Linen Thread – all adhered with Glue Dots – finished it off.

On the inside, I added a second Botanical Bliss sentiment in Coastal Cabana to a Whisper White panel.  Across the bottom are some Crumb Cake leaves.

I matted the panel on Pear Pizzaz and into my Crumb Cake card base with Liquid Glue, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Crumb Cake Botanical Bliss leaves across the front…

…and the envelope flap got more Tea Room Specialty DSP.

Et Voila!  I love love love this Botanical Bliss bundle – the Botanical Tags Thinlits are so beautiful.  I can’t wait to use the rest of them on new projects!  And the Tea Room Specialty DSP is very elegant and…it’s lightweight – so would be perfect for making envelopes!  Hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Stack of Little Elephants Welcome

Happy Hawwmp day!  How goes your week, my peeps??

I have a friend (yes – really!) who is expecting their first child in August.  So – as I practice my welcome-baby cards, I pulled out an adorable new bundle in the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog called Little Elephant and paired it up with some Tropical Escape DSP.  Take a look-see:

I drew the colors from the Sunday Stamps challenge this week!

I started by adhering a panel of Tropical Escape DSP to a mat of Granny Apple Green (one of my very favorite new colors!) with Liquid Glue for the card front.  Then I wrapped some Whisper White Solid Baker’s Twine a couple of times around the card front, securing it in the back with a couple of Glue Dots.

For the art tag – I cut a piece of Whisper White and, using my 1/2″ Circle Punch and sticking the corners part way into the punch FROM THE BACK – did a reverse corner-round on each corner.

I inked the two elephants from the the Little Elephant set in Granny Apple Green, stamped them off once and then stamped them on a piece of Whisper White card stock.  Then I cut them using the bundled Elephant Builder Punch!

Before laying everything out, I  stamped the sentiment in Tranquil Tide ink on a Granny Apple Green strip of card stock and punched the ends with the Banner Triple Punch.  Then I edged it with my Tranquil Tide Stampin’ Write Marker.

I dry-fit all the parts – the sentiment and both elephants – over the Whisper White panel and used that to line up and stamp the little bird from Little Elephant in Tranquil Tide.  Then I put the panel into the new Tufted Dynamic TIEF – wiggling it around so that the bird was inside a diamond….and embossed it in the Big Shot.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the die cut elephants to the Whisper White panel, then popped the panel onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  With the Elephant Builder Punch, I cut out some ears from Granny Apple Green and popped them on with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added the sentiment banner with some Liquid Glue and a couple of Dimensionals.  I tied a double-length bow from the Whisper White Solid Baker’s Twine and adhered it with a Glue Dot.  Finally, a Granny Apple Green Glitter Enamel Dot finished off the card front.

On the inside, I added a full-strength Granny Apple Green elephant (complete with Granny Apple Green ears!) and some Tranquil Tide hearts to a Whisper White panel.

I adhered the panel to a Granny Apple Green mat and into my Tranquil Tide card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another Little Elephant elephant and hearts on the front…I even adhered a little punched-out Granny Apple Green ear!

…and put some more of the Tropical Escape DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Cute cute cute.  The Little Elephant stamp set and bundled Elephant Builder Punch is just flat adorable!  And I love the Tufted Dynamic TIEF – especially for a baby card, don’t you?  Hope you like!

P.S.  In case you don’t follow my FB page….I want to thank each and every one of you for helping me to earn the wonderful cruise to Alaska with Stampin’ Up!  My trip packet arrived yesterday – that makes it really truly real, y’all!  Thank you thank you!! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Sail Away on LilyPad Lake for the Stamp Ink Paper #155

Happy Tuesday, y’all!  Since it’s Tuesday, that means we’ve got another Stamp Ink Paper challenge to give your creative mojo a bump!  AND – it’s a give away challenge so…Hope you’ll play along with us! 🙂

The theme this week is Summer Fun and the little sailboats in the Lilypad Lake bundle really say summer to me.  I added the perfect sentiment from the Detailed With Love set.  Take a look-see:

And here’s the challenge badge for the SIP #155!  When you’re done here, be sure to head over and check out the giveaway this week!

In addition to our own challenge, I got the inspiration for my layout from the sketch challenge at CAS(E) This Sketch.

And…cuz I’m always willing to take any extra help…my colors are from the Just Us Girls Color Week.

I pulled out my journaling pens and did a little doodling – as suggested by the TGIF Challenge!

So – to begin, I stamped the water image from the Lilypad Lake stamp set in Coastal Cabana on a panel of Whisper White, then double-matted the panel on Coastal Cabana and Lovely Lipstick card stock.

Over the top, I borrowed a sentiment from the Detailed With Love stamp set and added it with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink – using my Stamparatus.

On some scrap Whisper White, I stamped several sailboat images in Tuxedo Black and cut them all out with their matching die in the bundled Lakeside Framelits.  Then I got busy with my Lovely Lipstick and Coastal Cabana Stampin’ Write Markers.  I used my Journaling Pen to fun-i-size the sails with some doodles!

I used Liquid Glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals to add the sailboats oh-so-artistically around the sentiment.  

My Journaling Pen came in handy to add some sea birds and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added the Lilypad Lake sailboats again in Tuxedo Black, Lovely Lipstick and Coastal Cabana to a Whisper White panel.  I hand-drew some Coastal Cabana waves and doodled a few more sea birds.

I double matted the panel on Coastal Cabana and Lovely Lipstick, then added it to my Basic Black card base with Liquid Glue.  Then I popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got a reprise of the Lilypad Lake sailboats on the front…

…and I added more Coastal Cabana water and some sea birds to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I can almost hear the sea gulls crying and the slap of the waves against my Lilypad Lake sailboats, can’t you?  And the Detailed With Love sentiment fits perfectly.  Hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Floral Foliage Frames Hello

Good Monday.

You know what I mean, okay? 😉

Hope you had a great weekend and are ready to git the work week done!

If you spent a little of your Sunday with me, I surely do appreciate it! If you couldn’t join us, but would like to see the Memorex-version on YouTube – here ’tis!

 

I used the fun new Floral Frames stamp set and bundled (saving you a cool 10% right off the top!) Foliage Frame Framelits.  I put it on top of some gorgeous Petal Promenade DSP.  Take a look-see:

Although I didn’t use the sketch, I was inspired by the photo in this week’s Fusion Challenge.

And, it’s just feminine enough to work with this week’s Watercolor Wednesday Challenge!

This is an easy and quick card – the beautiful DSP and fun dies in the Foliage Frame Framelits do all the work – so…buckle up!

I started by heat embossing the large floral frame image from the Floral Frames stamp set.  I inked it with Versamark ink and stamped it on my Petal Promenade DSP panel.  Then I sprinkled it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heated it up with my Heat Tool.  I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Blushing Bride mat to create the card front.

Then I pulled out the matching Foliage Frame Framelits and cut two large frames – one each in Shaded Spruce and Soft Sea Foam.  I also cut four leaves from Whisper White card stock.

I adhered the white leaves to the card front with Liquid Glue, then added the Soft Sea Foam framelit die cut – also with Liquid Glue.  I popped the Shaded Spruce die cut on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

For the Floral Frames sentiment, I stamped it in Blushing Bride on Whisper White and cut it with a Stitched Shapes Framelits circle die.  I adhered it with Liquid Glue to a Blushing Bride mat that I’d cut with the Starburst Punch.

I added some Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the matted sentiment and used them to wind several loops of Gold Metallic Thread.  Then I popped it onto the card.

I finished up by adding some Petal Pink Rhinestone Gems and a few pink Share What You Love Artisan Pearls and the card front was done!

On the inside, I used Blushing Bride, Shaded Spruce and Soft Sea Foam to add some flowers and leaves from the Floral Frames set to a Whisper White panel.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Blsuhgin Bride mat and into my Thick Whisper White card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Floral Frames flowers and leaves on the front…

…and I added some more Petal Promenade DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This Floral Frames stamp set and Foliage Frame Framelits was another set that captured my eye – and my “want”!! – as soon as I saw it!  And – I can’t say enough about the beautious-ness of the Petal Promenade DSP!  Hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Love You To Pieces!

Good morning and Happy Saturday! 🙂  Hope you’ve got a fun day ahead of you – or a quiet and relaxing day, whichever makes your heart happier!

My card today uses the new Love You To Pieces bundle – and this is a fun set indeed!  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one hails from this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

And the color scheme comes from the Color Throwdown.

I started with a piece of Whisper White card stock and embossed it with the large die in the new Puzzle Pieces Thinlits using the new Big Shot Embossing Mats.  I adhered a piece of Grapefruit Grove DSP from the 2018-2020 In Color DSP to a second mat of Pool Party card stock with Liquid Glue, then popped the embossed Whisper White panel over top with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I wrapped a piece of Granny Apple Green 1/2″ Textured Weave Ribbon around the front of a Whisper White card base, securing it with a couple of Glue Dots on the front.  Then I popped my embossed and matted square over top with Dimensionals.

I stamped the two puzzle pieces from the Love You To Pieces stamp set – one in Pineapple Punch and one in Grapefruit Grove – on Whisper White, then cut them with their dies in the Puzzle Pieces Thinlits.

The Love You To Pieces sentiment is stamped in Granny Apple Green on a strip of Whisper White with banner ends snipped.  I edged the banner with my Pool Party Stampin’ Write Marker.

I adhered the Pineapple Punch puzzle piece to the card front with Liquid Glue, then added the sentiment banner with a couple of Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added the second puzzle piece with Stampin’ Dimensionals and a little dab of Liquid Glue.  And that was it for the card front.

On the inside, I added some Love You To Pieces hearts in Pineapple Punch and Granny Apple Green across the bottom of my Whisper White panel.

I matted the panel on Grapefruit Grove 2018-2020 In Color DSP and Pool Party and then adhered it into the Whisper White card base with Liquid Glue and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Pineapple Punch and Granny Apple Green hearts across the front…

 

…and a little more 2018-2010 In Color DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I love these colors – I think Granny Apple Green is going to be the new Lemon Lime Twist, don’t you?  And this fun – and punny! – Love You To Pieces bundle is really going to be a hoot to use!  Hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! A Big Bee-utiful Thank You!

Good morning and Happy Friday!  Hope your week has gone well and that something good is on the books for the weekend!

Last Sunday, on my FB Live video, y’all got a little sneaky peek at a project I was working on.  Today I’ve got that finished card for you!  It uses the wonderful new a la carte stamp set called Bee Thankful, plus a few sentiments and images from the new A Big Thank You stamp set.  Take a look-see:

Since a thank-you card is frequently the result of an occasion, I felt like I could play along with this week’s Watercolor Cooler Challenge.  So I did! 🙂

I started with some pretty Calypso Coral paper from the new Animal Expedition DSP that I matted on Daffodil Delight for the card front.

On a piece of Granite Gray card stock, I stamped the big Bee Thankful image in Early Espresso.  Then I colored the image with my White, Old Olive, Daffodil Delight and Calypso Coral Watercolor Pencils.

With a non-SU! White Gel Pen, I added some faux stitches that look a little like the white design on the DSP.  I also added a few little “highlight” dots here and there around the image.  Then I matted it on Daffodil Delight and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I used a Glue Dot to add a Tropical Elements button to the panel and another to adhere a little bow tied from some Grapefruit Grove Nature’s Twine.  And that was it for the card front.  This wonderful stamp does all the heavy lifting on this card!

On the inside, I added a sentiment from the A Big Thank You in Early Espresso to a Whisper White panel.  Then I added a few flowers in Daffodil Delight.  These are also in the A Big Thank You set – I stamped the fill image a couple of times without re-inking, then added the outline image – all in Daffodil Delight.  For the centers, I stamped the little heart in Grapefruit Grove.

I matted the panel on Daffodil Delight and adhered it into my Granite Gray card base with Liquid Glue, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another flurry of A Big Thank You flowers…

…and another pop of Animal Expedition DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  When I saw this Bee Thankful stamp in the new catalog it was instantly at the top of my must-have list.  I mean, seriously?  Could that little bee bee any cuter?!?  And the darling font and little leaves.  Really – you NEED this one, y’all!  And the A Big Thank You set is chock-a-block full of wonderful sentiments of gratitude, plus flowers and leaves with which to embellish your creations!  I hope you like!

TTFN
