Finn Fan Fix

Finn has some of the cutest little – err…BIG!…hands I’ve seen on a dog.

You’ve seen them in pictures so you agree, I know.

But – they’re not just cute!  They’re functional!

Lid scooting all over the floor while you’re trying to lick the brown off of it??

No sweat!

Finn will be on vacay from the paparazzi while the Chief Paparazzian is away.  He’ll be back soon!

Stampin’ Up! Dear Doily, Words Can’t Express…

Happy Monday, y’all!  Hope you had a good weekend – or are still having it depending on how you (or your employer!) view the holiday-status of Martin Luther King Day!

If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video, I thank you for spending part of your regular/long weekend with me! 😉  If not, but you’d like to see the replay, here is it on YouTube!

I used the new Dear Doily stamp set and bundled Doily Builder Thinlits to do a little embossing and die cutting to create this sympathy card.  Take a look-see:

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

And the color scheme hails from the Hand Stamped Sentiments color challenge.

I started with a piece of Thick Whisper White card stock cut at 5″ x 10″ and scored and folded at 5″ (yes – creating a 5″ x 5″ square card!).  Then I embossed both sides in the Subtle Dynamic TIEF (that’s a run thru the Big Shot for each side).

Using the Big Shot Embossing Mats (specifically the hard white mat and the thin blue mat), I embossed a square Petal Pink panel several times with the dies from the Doily Builder Thinlits.  Then, using the Detailed Trio Punch, I rounded all four corners.

I cut a Mossy Meadow mat and rounded its corners with the punch, then adhered the embossed panel to it with Liquid Glue.

I used several Glue Dots to wind some Fresh Fig 3/8″ Mini Ruffled Ribbon loops – letting it hang off both sides.

For the doily, I cut the largest die from the Doily Builder set from a piece of Petal Pink printed vellum in the Floral Romance Specialty DSP.  I adhered my doily to the card front with Liquid Glue.

The sentiment, from Dear Doily, is stamped in Fresh Fig and cut with a Stitched Shapes Framelits circle die, then popped on with Stampin’ Dimensionals to finish off the card front.

On the inside, I used my Stamparatus to stamp a second Fresh Fig Dear Doily sentiment in the corner of a Whisper White panel.  Over that, I added a doily image in stamped-off-once Petal Pink.  Then I rounded the corners with my Detailed Trio Punch.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Mossy Meadow mat and into my prepared card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

I made a square envelope for the card from a piece of Floral Romance Specialty DSP using my Envelope Punch Board.

The beautiful double-sided paper did the work on the front AND the envelope flap!

Et Voila!  I love this stamp set!  With a single open-ended front sentiment, you can make a sympathy card, thank you/friendship or thinking of you card just by changing the inside sentiment.  And the Doily Builder Thinlits create lovely embellishments and accents – either by cutting or using the dies to emboss!  How cool is that?!  I hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix

I showed you guys my new stamp room – created with “found” furniture from around the house (and a couple of Ikea desks from my friend Amy!) – on the video.  And, of course, a LOT of my storage is from my fave spot – Stamp-N-Storage!  Like…my new Stamp Case shelves – that I had built to a custom length!  And that Wayne hung for me – saving me tons of precious table space!

Of course, Finn isn’t nearly so concerned with the finer points of stamp case, paper and thinlits storage as he is with…

…let’s just be sure there’s a likely spot for the dog! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Dear Doily Video Sneak Peek

Morning, my peeps.  I sit here on Saturday night with the rain pounding on the skylight.  Took the Man for a quick walk in it – a guy’s gotta go, ya know – and now just not going back out again.  It’s not cold, though – so that’s good, although I’m guessing it’s at least part of why there’s a tornado watch.  Who knows.  But my spidey sense isn’t tingling, so…I suspect we’ll make it thru the night quite well.

And so – barring any issues with the internet – we’ll be doing a live video tonight at 8pm eastern (that’s our normal time, by the way!) over on my Stamps-N-Lingers Facebook page.

Our card is going to do a little embossing with the Big Shot Embossing Mats, using the Doily Builder Thinlits….take a sneaky peek!

And – if there’s time, I’ll pull the camera off the stand and give you a little video tour of my new spot!

Ifnyanto, that is!

So – Tonight.  8pm Eastern.  Right here.

Hope to see you then!

Finn Fan Fix

Finn wanted me to show you all the pictures of his -uhm…MY…new stamp room!

I told him no – we’re going to show them our room on our video tonight.

I suggested a compromise – like our card, we could give y’all a sneak peek.

So – he graciously acquiesced.

Hmm – did I say “graciously”??  Well – maybe not.  Might have been a little sulky.

“Talk to the wiggler, Mom.”

Stampin’ Up! Bokeh Dots Come Home to Roost

Good morning!  How’s the weekend going so far?  We here at the Deatherage home are in the throes of “tax prep”.  At the same exact time I decided to move my craft area into our front bedroom.

Can you – in your wildest dreams – imagine the sheer chaos inside our home?

I’m organizing and throwing things away (throwing Wayne into an oh-no-I-was-saving-that-I’m-going-to-use-it apoplectic seizure) and trying my darnedest to make some semblance of order around me.  And then – I am vowing to keep it that way.  Well – at least within the 12’x12″ space of my craft room….

The rest of the house is on its own! 😉

My card for today (thank goodness I’d gotten it done and photographed BEFORE the final push to move from one spot to the next!!) is a simple and easy one – thanks to the Stamparatus!  It uses the fun Bokeh Dots set from the Annual Catalog and the Home To Roost set from the Sale-A-Bration catty.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one was inspired by Shawn De Oliveira’s card for the Global Design Project‘s CASE the Designer challenge.

And the color scheme is from the Color Throwdown challenge.

I started with a piece of Whisper White card stock and, using my Stamparatus, stamped the Bokeh Dots image.  First, I inked the full image with Balmy Blue and stamped it.  Then, I used a Sponge Dauber to add Highland Heather around the edges of the stamp, and stamped it again.  Ahhh – the beauty of the Stampapotamus!!  Love it!

I left the panel where it was and used the Stamparatus to add the grasses image from the Home to Roost set (get this one for FREE with a qualifying $50 purchase during Sale-A-Bration!) in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.

Next, I used my Journaling Pen to add some doodle-y stitches around the stamped image.  Then I matted the panel on Highland Heather.

I wrapped some new Whisper White 5/8″ Flax Ribbon and Balmy Blue Organdy Ribbon (this one is ALSO free with a $50 purchase during Sale-A-Bration!) around the panel – securing them in the back with Glue Dots.

My sentiment, from Home to Roost, is stamped in Highland Heather on Whisper White and cut out with the Classic Label Punch.

then popped on with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a Butterfly Element with Liquid Glue (guess what?  THIS is a FREE goody during Sale-A-Bration, too!) and then popped the sentiment over it all with a Mini Stampin’ Dimensional.

I used a Glue Dot to adhere a small Balmy Blue Organdy Ribbon bow and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added the Home To Roost grass in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the corner of a Whisper White panel.  Then I did some more doodling stitches with my Journaling Pen.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Highland Heather mat and into my Basic Black card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another Home to Roost grass image and some doodles on the front…

…and some Balmy Blue paper from the Subtles DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  It’s so easy to forget about all the cool stamp sets in the Annual Catalog when we’re busy playing with our new toys in the Sale-A-Bration and Occasions catalogs.  But…don’t!  Bokeh Dots is so neat and makes it easy peasy to add a fun design element to your cards.  And the free Home To Roost set is…excellent…with it’s images and sentiments.  Oh – and its FREE-ness!  Hope You Like!

Stampin’ Up! All That You Are Birthday

Well – we did it again!  Made it to Friday – and (for some folks!) – the Friday of a three-day weekend!  If that’s YOU – hope you’ve got some fun plans!  If, like me, you’re working on Monday…well.  Bleh.

My card today is a springy little number (like the Season, not like a slinky!).  I used the very first stamp set in the 2019 Occasions Catalog – called All That You Are.  To that, I added a little Gingham Gala DSP and…take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from this week’s Sunday Stamps sketch challenge.

And the color palette hails from The Paper Players – I picked Granny Apple Green for my “free” color!

I started by adhering a piece of Grapefruit Grove paper from Gingham Gala to a Daffodil Delight panel for the card front.  Then I wrapped a piece of Whisper White 5/8″ Flax Ribbon and one of Grapefruit Grove 1/8″ Grosgrain Ribbon around the panel, securing them in the back with Glue Dots.

For the art, I used my Stamparatus and stamped the large flower from All That You Are in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.

I colored the flowers with a Blender Pen, picking up Grapefruit Grove ink from the lid of the ink pad.  Then I used a Pool Party Stampin’ Write Marker for the small flowers and my Daffodil Delight Marker for the stamen.  The leaves were done with my Dark and Light Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends.

I matted the panel on Daffodil Delight and then adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a separate piece of Whisper White, I stamped the smaller flowers and several leaves in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the flowers and leaves just like I’d done on the larger version – and then cut them out. I used the dies in the Frosted Bouquet Framelits to cut the flowers and fussy cut the leaves.

I adhered the leaves with Liquid Glue, then popped the flowers over top with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the All That You Are sentiment in Pool Party on Whisper White and cut it with a new Rectangle Stitched Framelit die.

I used several Glue Dots to wind a few loops of the Grapefruit Grove ribbon, then popped the sentiment over it with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a Pool Party sentiment and a Tuxedo Black flower from All That You Are to a Whisper White panel.  I colored the flower in Grapefruit Grove, Granny Apple Green, and Daffodil Delight.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Daffodil Delight mat and into my Pool Party card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another All That You Are flower on the front…

…and some more of the Gingham Gala DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This All That You Are is such a pretty set – love those flowers!  And how handy that the smaller flowers fit the carrying-over Frosted Bouquet Framelits!  Hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix

The other day, we were playing a little chase-the-mushroom-ball and…Finn had a little accident.

He was leaping around waiting for me to throw the mushroom and in his bounding about – he bumped into the rock wall with his leg.

He sort of “oomph’d” and then trotted half-heartedly after the ball.

I called him back to me and told him I was so sorry.

And kissed it all better.

Figuratively.  I KNOW there that paw has been!

He bravely shook it off and with a toss of his ear-balls, galloomphed off to where he thought the ball had gone.

He was wrong – but…I got him close and he finally got it!

He’s a tough kid – but…sometimes, ya just need a little TLC from the Mom!

Stampin’ Up! Geared Up Birthday for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Happy Thursday, y’all – and welcome to another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!! This is another installment 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 decided to try out some more of the goodies from the Classic Garage suite – the Geared Up Garage stamp set with the bundled Garage Gears Thinlits and the Classic Garage DSP.  Did you know that the dies in the Thinlits will cut out the images on the DSP?  Well – take a look-see!

No cutting was fussy anywhere on this card!! 🙂

As usual, we had a sketch and a color challenge – and could use either or both.  I definitely used the sketch – and…sorta skirted the edges of the color palette!

             

I also think this dovetails perfectly with this week’s Watercoolor Wednesday Challenge!

I started with a piece of the Classic Garage DSP and embossed it using the large gear die in the Garage Gears Thinlits – using the Impressions Pad and thin silicone mat (the blue one) in the Big Shot Embossing Mats set.  Then I matted it on Pumpkin Pie with Liquid Glue for the card front.

The middle layer is another piece of the Classic Garage DSP, matted on Pumpkin Pie and adhered to the card front with Liquid Glue.

For the banner, I used a third design from the DSP pack, cut it into a banner with my Paper Snips, and then added some faux stitches with my Journaling Pen.  It, too, is adhered to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I cut the fun large image from the DSP using the large die from Garage Gears and adhered it with Liquid Glue.

The sentiment, from Geared Up Garage, is stamped in Crushed Curry on Very Vanilla and cut out with the Tailored Tag Punch,  I added the faux stitches with the Journaling Pen and popped it onto the card front wit Stampin’ Dimensionals.

For the embellishments – I cut another single gear from the DSP with a handy die.  Then I added two Classic Garage Metal Elements with Glue Dots, stuck the gear on with a little Liquid Glue, and adhered that bow tied with Black/Silver 1/4″ Striped Metallic Ribbon.  Yes, I DO think men CAN handle a bow now and then, especially when it’s all manly black and silver!  And that was it for the card front!

On the inside, I added a sentiment from the new Itty Bitty Birthdays stamp set in Crushed Curry to a Very Vanilla panel. Then I cut and adhered a couple more gear groups!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Pumpkin Pie mat and into my Real Red card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

On the front of my Very Vanilla Medium Envelope, I added a “cloud” from Geared Up Garage in Crushed Curry.  Over that, I adhered a couple more gears with Liquid Glue…

…and then I added another piece of the Classic Garage DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This was already a fun suite of goodies – but…that the dies in the Garage Gears Thinlits MATCH the images on the Classic Garage DSP – well…THAT’S amazeballs! It really notches up the awesomeness of the Geared Up Garage and all its friends in the suite!  And – I know you’re going to love all the birthday sentiment options from Itty Bitty Birthdays!  Hope you like!

Now that you’ve seen my card, take a minute to hop thru all our projects today  If you click on the Next Blog button, you’ll go right to Kristi Gray’s page. And you can just click on the names below to go direct to all the blogs!

Happy happy Hawwmp Day!!  The week is officially almost half over!  And so is January.  Can you even believe it?!?  That means…only 11 1/2 months until Christmas!

Now THAT’S a scary thought, huh?!?

I mentioned the other day that my friend needed a sympathy card and that I’d made two for her to choose from.  The first was my butterfly card from Monday.  Today I’ve got the second one – this one comes from the new and lovely Golden Afternoon stamp set, to which I added some Neutrals DSP and a little Subtle Embossing.  Take a look-see:

Good morning, y’all, as we head into another week.  Hope it’s looking okay for you – take heart from the fact that next week is a long weekend!

I’m sorry we weren’t able to do our video last night – hopefully by the time you read this they’ll have it fixed.  As in fixed “good” – not just poking along at the speed of dial-up… 😉

So – I needed a sympathy card for my friend – and this is one of two that I made for her to choose from.  This one uses the gorgeous Rose Trellis Thinlits and a few sentiments from the Flowing Fountain stamp set.  Take a look-see:

Morning, guys – hope your weekend is going well!

To everyone that left a comment yesterday about Bo – thank you so much!  We’re starting to get used to the new normal around here – focusing on the good memories of him!

So – today I’m getting back on the horse (so to speak) and we’re going to do a Facebook Live video tonight over on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page.  But – take note!  We’re going to be at 7pm Eastern (that’s an HOUR early!!) to accommodate our team meeting at 8!  Okay? ONE.  HOUR.  EARLIER!!

We’re going to do a sympathy card – my friend needed one, so… I pulled out the new Flowing Fountain for a sentiment, some Rose Trellis and a little bit of Botanical Butterfly DSP.  Take a sneaky-peek!
