Stampin’ Up! Last Day to Enter for Blog Candy and Happy Gotcha Day, Finn!

Good morning, y’all – happy Saturday! Now – usually, I’d give you a sneak peek of the card I am planning to make with you this evening.

Which would mean I’d need to HAVE a card to sneak peek.  But – here’s the thing.  I did something to my back yesterday morning.  No idea what.  Might just have been my parts realizing they’re 60?  I dunno.  I took a Flexeril and some Ibuprofen and then got in the only spot that didn’t hurt.  Bed.

I discovered that Flexeril has the ‘benefit” of making me sleep all day, is totally crafty-mojo-sucking….and does little-to-nothing for my back.

The whole thing ended up with me NOT making a card yesterday.  🙁

That said – I am ASSUMING that things will go as they have in the past and I’ll find the pain has subsided as quickly as it came on when I get moving today.  Which means that I WILL get a card made and I WILL be live on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page this evening at 7pm Eastern.

In the meantime..wanted to remind you that this is Happy 5th Gotcha Day for the Finn-man!!

Calgary Humane Society on Twitter: "Happy Gotcha Day 🐾 Gotcha Day  celebrates the day a new family member was added by adoption. We are SO  grateful for our amazing adopters and welcoming

Stampin’ Up! Holly Jolly Wintry Christmas Season

Happy Friday – I hope your week has gone well and that you have something fun planned for the weekend.  We have no plans that I know of – so…we’re winging it!

If you were able to join me yesterday for my YouTube live video, I appreciate you spending part of your week with me!  If not, but you’d like to see how I made this card, here ’tis!

This card has a ton of my favorite things in it – pine cones – pine boughs – pine green!  See a trend!?  The cool Painted Christmas DSP is the base for a Holly Jolly Wishes sentiment and some Christmas Season and Christmas Pinecone piney embellishments and images!  Take a look-see:

This interesting layout is from the CAS Colours & Sketches challenge this week.

I started by adhering a piece of the Painted Christmas DSP to an Evening Evergreen mat for the card front.

I took a 4″ wide x 3″ tall piece of Evening Evergreen cardstock and, using my Stampin’ Trimmer, cut it according to the template to make the pointed panel.

Then I embossed the panel in the pine bough design folder in the Wintry 3D Embossing Folders.  Then I trimmed it down by cutting the width to 3 7/8″ (from the original 4″ width).

Bonus:  in the video I showed how you can “punch” up the embossing by swiping your Whisper White stampin’ pad on the inside of the embossing folder before adding the cardstock and running it thru the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine.  How your panel looks depends on which side of the folder you ink.  We all got a great tip – ink BOTH sides of the folder and then emboss the panel.  That way you can pick which side you like better! 🙂

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the embossed panel to the top of the card front.

Using the large and small detailed pinecone dies in the Christmas Pinecone die set, I cut one each from Gold Shimmer Vellum.  Then I used the matching solid dies to cut one each in Early Espresso.  Using Liquid Glue, I adhered the detailed Gold Shimmer Vellum pinecones to the Early Espresso solid pinecones.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the pine cones to the card front and a Glue Dot to adhere a large Gold Holly Leaf.

I tied a simple bow from the gold trim in the Simply Elegant Trim pack and adhered it with a Glue Dot.

I stamped the Holly Jolly Wishes sentiment in Evening Evergreen on Basic White and cut it with a Stitched Rectangle Die.  Then I popped it over the bow with double-stacked Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a large Soft Succulent gem from the 2021-2023 In Color Jewels and the card front was done.

For the inside, I stamped a large sentiment from the Holly Jolly Wishes stamp set in Evening Evergreen on a Basic White panel.  Over the top, I stamped the large – single – pine bough from Christmas Season twice in stamped-off-once Soft Succulent.  Then I added the small detailed pine cone in stamped-off-TWICE Early Espresso.  Finally, I added another Soft Succulent gem from the 2021-2023 In Color Jewels.

I used Stampin’ Seal to adhere the panel to an Evening Evergreen mat and then into a Soft Succulent card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Basic White Medium Envelope got two of the Christmas Season pine boughs in full-strength Soft Succulent.  Then I added the small detailed pinecone in Early Espresso and the “fill” pine cone image in stamped-off-once Early Espresso…

…and more of the Painted Christmas DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Okay – I sort of love this card!  The angled and Wintry 3D Embossed panel is perfect atop gorgeous Painted Christmas DSP, don’t you think?  And the Holly Jolly Wishes sentiments – on the front and again inside – are wonderful focal points, enhanced with the Christmas Season and Christmas Pinecone images and die cuts.  It pretty much has all the things!

I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Knit Sweater Together Time of Giving for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good morning, y’all!  It’s Thursday – which means it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!!  We’ve got a sketch challenge to work with and I’m excited to see what everyone brings to the table – I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop today!

When I saw our sketch, I saw “background stamp”.  And the one I decided to pull out for you was the Knit Together stamp set – with the bundled Knit Sweater dies.  And – for the sentiment – and a few other elements (like LEAVES!) – out came the Time of Giving stamp set and bundled Giving Gifts Dies.  Take a look-see:

I think this could easily work as a card for a guy, don’t you?

Here’s our hop sketch challenge.

And I pulled the colors from The Paper Players.  Crumb Cake is my 4th color!

And – for the Cupcake Inspirations challenge – where…anything goes!

I started by using Liquid Glue to adhere a piece of Early Espresso paper from the Neutrals 6″ x 6″ DSP to the front of an Early Espresso card base.

Next, I placed a Crumb Cake panel into my Stamparatus and stamped it with the Knit Together background stamp in Crumb Cake.

Using the reindeer (or white-tail buck, if you will! 😉 ) die in the Knit Sweater die set – I cut two rows of them from the stamped panel.

I wrapped some Linen Thread a few times around the bottom of the panel, securing it in back with Glue Dots.  Then I adhered it to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I used the leaves die in the Giving Gifts die set (part of the Time of Giving bundle) to cut some leaves.  I cut Pumpkin Pie and Pale Papaya from the Regals and 2020-2022 In Color 6″ x 6″ DSP packs.  I cut two sets of each color.  Had some leaves leftover, but… I needed more large leaves than I could get with just one pass! 🤷‍♀️

I laid out all the leaves and then adhered them.  I did every other leaf with a Stampin’ Dimensional – and the alternate leaves with Liquid Glue.  That ended up making all my Pumpkin Pie leaves popped up – and all the Pale Papaya leaves adhered flat!

I stamped the Time of Giving sentiment in Early Espresso on the plaid Pale Papaya DSP and cut it with a Stitched Rectangle Die.

I adhered the sentiment over the Linen Thread with Stampin Dimensionals.

Then I used Liquid Glue to tuck a few leftover Giving Gifts die cut leaves under the left end.

 

I tied a little Linen Thread bow around the wrapped Linen Thread – making sure it was set over the leaves and snugged up to the sentiment – and the card front was done.

For the inside, I stamped a leaf from the Time of Giving stamp set in stamped-off-once Pale Papaya onto a Very Vanilla panel.

Note: this is another stamp that I took the plunge on and cut apart!  I can put them all on a block at the same time or one at a time.  Easy peasy!

I used Stampin’ Seal to adhere the panel to a Pumpkin Pie mat and into the Early Espresso card base and the card was done.

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got the Time of Giving leaf in full-strength Pale Papaya on the front…

…and more Early Espresso Neutrals 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  The Knit Together background stamp in the tone-on-tone Crumb Cake looks like a cozy sweater to me!  Add in some “deer” from the Knit Sweater Dies and a few leaves from the Giving Gifts die set and…I think you’ve got a winning Fall sweater!  The Time of Giving stamp set is so versatile – covering Fall, Halloween and Christmas!

Stampin’ Up! Love, Santa Tag Kit Alternative Card Project and…Blog Candy!!

Well – Happy Happy Hawwwmp Day!!  What do you call a camel with no humps?

Humphree, of course! 😉

That joke has absolutely positively NOTHING to do with the project I’m sharing with you today!

Stampin’ Up! has some amazing kits and they recently released a brand new All-Inclusive Kit called the Love, Santa Tag Kit!  And – it has matching treat bags, too.  Cuz…tags and treat bags just go together like peanut butter and jelly!

I picked up a couple right away and they arrived over the weekend.  So I pulled one of the kits out and put it together quick as a bunny.

No.  Really – it went together really quickly and it is UBER cute!

The kit comes with EVERYthing you need to make twelve fun tags – and they are BIG!!  Like…card-front-sized big!  Which means they’re perfect for attaching to a filled Love, Santa Treat Bag!

I bought an extra kit  (or two!) – so I decided to make THIS one into some quick and easy Christmas cards! I saw that my friend and awesome upline, Amy Koenders, had done that, so…it seemed like a good plan.  She used a Basic Patterns Mask and Blending Brushes to stencil snowflakes all over her card bases.  I wanted to show you a different way to achieve that look!

I picked two coordinating colors – Poppy Parade and Night of Navy – and pulled out the Merry Snowflakes stamp set.

I stuck the three snowflake stamps from the set onto a single acrylic block…

…and then stamped the snowflakes all over a piece of cardstock.  Poppy Parade ink on Poppy Parade cardstock and Night of Navy ink on Night of Navy cardstock! I adhered each stamped card front to a same-color card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals

I popped each stamped card front onto a same-color card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Then I popped each tag onto the card fronts with more Dimensionals.  I put some on straight – and some at a jaunty angle.  I couldn’t decide which one I liked better so….what do you think?  Straight or angled? 🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️

I left the tag hangers in place and just tied them into a simple bow!

For the inner liners, I used the sentiment from Merry Snowflakes and stamped it in the coordinating color on a Basic White panel.

Then I added one of the leftover jewels from the Love, Santa Tag Kit and adhered the panels into the cards with Stampin’ Seal. Tip: the Tag Kit instruction sheet shows you how many jewels to use on each tag.  I initially used that as a guide.  Then…since I had leftovers, I added more of the jewels to the Christmas tree tag.  If you do that – just be sure you leave 12 little ones to add to the inside of the cards! 😉

I stamped Basic White Medium Envelopes – you didn’t think I would NOT do envelopes did you?? – with the same Merry Snowflakes that I’d used on the card front.  I did them in the coordinating color on the front…

…and on the envelope flap!

Et Voila!  Tags or cards?  Heck – get TWO Love, Santa Tag Kits and do BOTH!  They’re so easy and fun.  AND – if you’re doing tags – you don’t need ANY other products – you’ll get a Night of Navy Ink Spot AND an acrylic block!! But don’t forget to pick up a pack of the coordinating Love, Santa Treat Bags!

The kit ALSO coordinates with Bumblebee, Just Jade, and Polished Pink in addition to the Night of Navy and Poppy Parade.  So… you could do any color combo that strikes you!! 🙂

I hope you like!

If you’d like to recreate these cards, all the products and card cuts are listed below!

Now – Blog Candy.  Finn has that for you so….read on!

Stampin’ Up! Festive & Bright Thinking Thanks for the Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Good morning, y’all – welcome to another edition of the Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team blog hop!  Each month we make projects centered around a theme – and this month our theme is Giving Thanks!  We can interpret that any way we want – so…be sure to check and see everyone’s projects – we’ve got a bunch of talented ladies hopping with us this month!

I used two really cool products – well, three if you add in the Beauty of the Earth DSP!  The Festive & Bright Bundle – with it’s pretty apple-garland border – and the Thinking Thanks & Peace stamp set.  Take a look-see:

I used the FUSION sketch (turned on its side!) for the layout!


And I played along with the Tic-Tac-Toe challenge, too! I went across the center!

I started out by matting some wood-grain paper from the Beauty of the Earth DSP on Cherry Cobbler to make the card front.

Next, I stamped the Festive & Bright apple-border image twice in Early Espresso on Very Vanilla.  Then I used the matching edge dies from the bundled Festive Finishes die set to cut the edges.  Too cute!

Using my Cherry Cobbler and Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blends Combos, I colored both strips.

I stamped the bold sentiment from the Thinking Thanks & Peace stamp set in Early Espresso on a strip of Very Vanilla.  Using my Bumble Bee Stampin’ Write Marker, I colored the wheat sheaf.

I matted the strip on Cherry Cobbler.

I adhered the two apple borders to the card front with Liquid Glue with enough space between them to accommodate the matted sentiment.  Then I adhered the sentiment with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I used the little apple die in the Festive Finishes die set to cut a Cherry Cobbler apple.  And the leaf die to cut a Mossy Meadow leaf.

Using Liquid Glue, I adhered the leaf behind the apple and then used a Stampin’ Dimensional and a little more Liquid Glue to adhere the apple to the sentiment.

I tied a little bow from some Very Vanilla twine in the Baker’s Twine Essentials Pack and adhered it with a squished up Glue Dot and the card front was done.

On the inside, I stamped the wheat sheaf from the Thinking Thanks & Peace set in Early Espresso in the corner of a Very Vanilla panel.  I colored the wheat with my Bumble Bee Stampin’ Write Marker.

TIP:  You might remember this stamp – I actually CUT the sentiment from the wheat.  I left the rubber so that I could put the two pieces together on a block – as I did for the front…

…but I can ALSO use either piece on its own.

Like I did on the inside of the card.

I used Stampin’ Seal to adhere the panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat and into my Thick Very Vanilla card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got the Thinking Thanks & Peace wheat on the front…

..and more Beauty of the Earth DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I really like the Festive & Bright Bundle – it’s kind of easy to overlook, but..it covers Fall/Thanksgiving, Halloween AND Christmas!  With totally adorable images and die cuts from the Festive Finishes Die set!  And the Thinking Thanks & Peace set is equally occasion-fluid, covering Thanksgiving, Thinking of You, Halloween AND Christmas!

I hope you like!

Good morning and happy Sunday!  Half way thru the weekend already – it’s that darned time-warp thing again!

We had a nice time at the shower – and it was awfully good to see the kids again – we’d seen Chris and Courtney (the soon-to-be-new parents) at the gender reveal, but…I think it’s been a year since we’d seen Matt and Katelyn.  Hopefully it won’t be that long this time! 🤷‍♀️

If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video, I appreciate you spending part of your weekend with me!  If not, but you’d like to see how to make this collage card, here ’tis on YouTube!
