Stampin’ Up! Eclectic Eastern Medallion Video Sneak Peek

Good Sunday morning, y’all!  I’m working today – hope you’re not!

I had a lovely Saturday.  Met a new friend for lunch – we spent just the nicest two hours enjoying a wonderful meal (yea – I decided it would be a cheat day!) and a lovely breeze by the water.  We talked about stamping and dieting and living in Florida and books and traveling (and how much we both hate flying these days!).  She’s even read the series of books that I just started – and took a vacation to Ireland.  It was a thoroughly lovely time.  And – all because of Stampin’ Up!  Never would have met her otherwise! 🙂

So – as has become the norm, I’ll be live tonight at 8pm Eastern on my Stamps-N-Lingers Facebook Page.  We’re going to play with the pretty Eastern Medallion Thinlits and some Naturally Eclectic DSP.  I hope you’ll join me – bring your Thinlits and paper and Eastern Beauty stamp set and let’s play! Or just come to watch.  Here’s a sneaky tease…

Tomorrow’s post will have all the card cuts and products used, plus more pictures!

Hope to see you tonight! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Colorful Graceful Garden

Morning, all!  Welcome to the weekend – hope you’ve got some fun plans and that the weather is going to be nice for you!

I thought after a few days of what looked like complex, multi-step projects, that you might be ready for a super quick, super simple – but super pretty card!

So – I pulled out the new Graceful Garden stamp set and the Artistically Asian stamp set, plus some Color Theory DSP – and gave you exactly that.  Take a look-see:

I took some inspiration from the sketch challenge at CAS(E) This Sketch.

Hang on – cuz this one is quick-quick!!

I took a piece of the Berry Burst paper from the Color Theory DSP Stack and stamped the large and lovely rose from the Graceful Garden stamp set in Basic Black Archival Ink in the middle of the panel.

I cut an oval from the middle of the panel using an Oval Layering Framelits die.  Then I SNAILd the remainder of the panel to a Basic Black mat.

I wrapped a length of new Basic Black 3/8″ Shimmer Ribbon around the card front, securing it in the back with scotch tape.

I cut a scalloped oval with a slightly larger Ovals Layering Framelit die in Basic Black and SNAILd the DSP oval to it.  

Before adding the oval to the card front, I used my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to align and stamp the sentiment from Artistically Asian in Basic Black Archival Ink.  Then I popped the matted oval onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals, making sure to line the image up with the card front.

I tied a bow from the Black Shimmer Ribbon and adhered it with a Glue Dot and the card front was done.  Told ya!

On the inside, I stamped a smaller image from Graceful Garden in Basic Black Archival Ink on a Whisper White panel.  Using a Blender Pen and picking up ink from the lid of my Berry Burst ink pad, I colored the flower.  I used all Berry Burst to mirror the image on the front.  When you do this – color the whole image quickly with the color.  Then add some deeper color in the same parts of the image where the Stampin’ Up! designers added the blending for you.  Easy Peasy!

I SNAILd the panel to a Basic Black mat and into my Berry Burst card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another of the Graceful Garden roses on the front…

…and I added a little more of the Color Theory DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I think Graceful Garden is a lovely set and you could easily modify the sentiment to make it whatever you needed – sympathy, get well, thinking of you…whatever.  Change the color – the Color Theory DSP has Old Olive, Dapper Denim, Crushed Curry and Berry Burst – pair each of them with Basic Black!  What a wonderful set of cards that would make.  Hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Coffee Cafe, Cake and Chocolate Birthday!

Wow – is it just me or is time really kind of flying??  Is it really Friday again!?  Yikes!  Hope your week is going by as quickly as mine and that you’re all ready for a weekend!  

I had a nice day for my birthday – didn’t have to go in to work, got some new books to read and a lovely mom-knitted sweater (from my mom!).  Thanks to all for the birthday wishes as I turned 25…

…Plus Next Day Air Shipping and Handling.

Keeping the birthday theme going, a friend of mine has one coming up.  She has a few loves in life – and three of them are in the title to this post.

Coffee.

Cake.

Chocolate.

Not necessarily in that order.

And – if one can combine the three into one – all the better!!

So – when the new Coffee Break Suite came out – and then there was also the More Than Chocolate stamp set – well…I knew something would come of them for her!  And so it has.  Take a look-see:

I definitely drew some inspiration from the Annual Catalog projects for the Coffee Break Suite, and then I sort of went from there.  Folks – never be afraid to get ideas from other stampers and the catalog!  Sharing/Copying is IN!!  Heck – we’ve even got a name for it!! CASE – Copy and Share Everything – or Copy And Selectively Edit.  

I started with a piece of the Early Espresso paper in the Coffee Break DSP.

Next up, I stamped the coffee cup image from the Coffee Break stamp set in Early Espresso on a piece of Whisper White card stock.  I also stamped a lid in Garden Green.  Then I cut them both out with the handy matching dies in the Coffee Cups Framelits (I got these with a 10% discount by buying them as a bundle – and so can you!).  I set them aside for a minute.

My middle panel is a piece of Early Espresso card stock which I stamped all over with coffee beans from the Coffee Cafe stamp set in Early Espresso Ink.  Then it was time for Coffee….Cake…Chocolate.

One of the pieces of paper in the Coffee Break DSP has a bunch of coffee cups and coffee pots on it.  There’s also a die in the set that perfectly matches a couple of the cup images!  I used that and cut out two coffee cups from the paper.  And adhered them to the panel with Liquid Glue.

For the chocolate, I pulled out the new More Than Chocolate stamp set and stamped a few pieces of candy in Chocolate Chip ink (duh, Mary!) on some Whisper White card stock.

I snipped around my “box” of chocolates and adhered it to a slightly larger piece of Early Espresso card stock – like it was a box.  I colored in the white parts on the chocolates with my Powder Pink Stampin’ Write Marker and adhered that to the panel with Liquid Glue.

Now.  Cake.  Where to get some cake of the right size for the panel?

Hmmm…how’s about the Birthday Memories DSP!?  Yep!  Perfect.  I fussy cut a pretty cake from one of the designs in the stack, and adhered it with Liquid Glue.

Time to assemble the card front.

I wrapped a piece of Soft Sky 3/8″ Classic Weave Ribbon around the Early Espresso Coffee Break paper.  I stapled it in the middle with my Handheld Stapler and left the ends loose on the side of the panel. Then I wrapped a piece of Linen Thread around it, tied a bow and popped the card front onto a Pear Pizzazz mat with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Over that, I popped my decorated panel with more Stampin’ Dimensionals.  

Then I cut my coffee cup in half and stamped just the word “Happiness” on the top in Pear Pizzazz, added some Liquid Glue to the back, and slipped it under my panel to adhere it.  I slid the bottom of the cup under the panel in the same way!  Mucho MUCHO Grande Cafe!!  Just about the right size cup to make my friend happy! 🙂

I popped my Garden Green lid on with a few Dimensionals.

Finally, I stamped the word “Is” in Garden Green on a scrap of Pear Pizzazz card stock and punched it out with my 1/2″ Circle Punch.  I adhered it to a Corrugated Elements heart and then onto the card front with Liquid Glue.  And that was it.  Lots of words, y’all – but all easy peasy stuff!

On the inside, I used the pretty Stylized Birthday a la carte stamp to add the sentiment in Pear Pizzazz in the middle of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped a few Early Espresso coffee beans around it.  Across the bottom is a piece of the Early Espresso paper from the Coffee Break DSP, matted on Pear Pizzazz.  And I cut out another coffee cup from the DSP, adhered it to another Corrugated Elements shape and then to the strip.

I SNAILd the panel to a Pear Pizzazz mat and into my Early Espresso card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Early Espresso Coffee Cafe beans on the front, plus a Corrugated Elements heart…

…and a piece of the Coffee Break DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I think she’ll be well-caffeinated when she gets this one, don’t you?  I love everything about this new Coffee Break Suite!  And the More Than Chocolate stamp set has so much potential for fun cards.  And – not a calorie in a card load.

See what I did there?  LOL!!

Hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Friendly Orange Blossoms for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop



Happy Thursday, y’all – and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!  It’s sketch week so be sure to hop thru all our blogs when you get done here and see how we all interpreted the challenge! 🙂

Speaking of – here it is:

I also played along with the Sunday Stamps color challenge…

We were to use at least 3 of the colors.  I think, using the Orange Blossom stamp set and a little bit of Wood Textures DSP that I did that.  And maybe a few more!  Take a look-see:

I started with a panel of Whisper White card stock and stamped a bunch of the pretty images from the new Orange Blossom stamp set all over it.  I used Flirty Flamingo for the large flowers – stamping it twice without re-inking.  I also used Pear Pizzazz, So Saffron, Peekaboo Peach and Sweet Sugarplum.  Once I had it stamped all over, I matted it on Sweet Sugarplum card stock.

My banner started with a piece of Sweet Sugarplum for the mat.  I used Paper Snips to make a banner end.  Then I cut a smaller piece of Wood Textures DSP and cut the banner ends in it, too.

Using a die from the Sweet & Sassy Framelits, I cut a heart in the Wood Textures DSP banner.

The sentiment is from the Orange Blossoms stamp set.  I inked just the word “Hey” in Sweet Sugarplum ink and stamped it on a scrap piece of Whisper White.  That piece of card stock got adhered to the Sweet Sugarplum banner so that the sentiment would show in the top of the heart cut out.

I used Stampin’ Dimensionals – regular and mini! – to pop the Wood Textures banner over the Sweet Sugarplum banner (making sure my “hey” showed!).  Then I used Liquid Glue to adhere the whole thing to the card front.

My banner sentiment is another word from the Orange Blossom stamp set, stamped in Flirty Flamingo on a  strip of Whisper White.  I cut a banner end with my Paper Snips, edged it with my Sweet Sugarplum Stampin’ Write Marker and then used Liquid Glue and a Stampin’ Dimensional to add it over the banners.

To finish it off, I took a large heart from the new Hearts & Stars Elements and colored the stripes with my Peekaboo Peach Marker.  I decided I wasn’t happy with that, so I went over the stripes again with my Flirty Flamingo marker.  I adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.  Finally, I added a bow from a piece of Peekaboo Peach 5/8″ Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon using a Glue Dot.

On the inside, I added some more of the Orange Blossom flowers in the corner of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped a Flirty Flamingo flower on a piece of Whisper White, fussy cut it and adhered it with Liquid Glue over the top.  And I added another little wooden heart that I’d colored in Peekaboo Peach.

I SNAILd the panel to a Sweet Sugarplum mat and into a 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 Orange Blossom flowers on the front (I made a sticky note mask for the large flower to do these)….

…and even more on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Isn’t this a pretty little stamp set with more beautiful flowers?  I love the different images you can create – my favorite is the little yellow buds on the green stem.  I hope you like – and know you’re going to want this one in your toolbox!

Stampin’ Up! Just Add Color and a Touch of Lemon Zest!

Happy Hawwmp Day, y’all!  We’re in test mode now, so working from the hotel for a few days.  Can’t say I mind – no makeup.  Don’t have to “do” my hair!  I’ve got my computer and good internet, so working is easy (heck – it’s just like being at home!!).  And have a whole desk full of stamp sets and all the goodies.  On top of that, it’s raining steady outside thanks to TS Cindy – so it’s a perfect week to have some “stay home” time!

You guys would be proud of me.  Well – maybe.  Yesterday, to mark the first real day of testing, I bought donuts.  The good kind.  The “maple bacon” kind.  I bought two dozen.

Guess how many I ate?  

Yep.

ZERO!!!

I ate yoghurt.  And a banana.  And pretended it was a maple bacon donut.  And relished the fact that I had to go buy smaller jeans on the weekend!

So…when I go on that Stampin’ Up! cruise to Alaska next year…yep, I’ll be thin(ner!).  See?  That’s positive thinking, huh??

But – for now, I think you came for a card, not a diet update! LOL

If you like to color – and who doesn’t?? – then the Just Add Color Specialty DSP that I used today will be right up your alley.  Do you like tea?  Maybe with some lemon?  Well then, my added touches from the Lemon Zest stamp set will be just right.  Take a look-see:

My layout was inspired by the sketch over at CAS(E) This Sketch:

I started by embossing a piece of Whisper White card stock in the new Layered Leaves Dynamic TIEF and then matting it on Melon Mambo card stock.

Next up, I made a little bit of lemon-y “DSP” by stamping the lemon slice image from the Lemon Zest stamp set on another piece of Whisper White.  I stamped the image both full strength and a second time without re-inking.  My sentiment – also from Lemon Zest, is stamped in Melon Mambo.  It’s also matted on Melon Mambo and then popped over the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

For my “tea set”, I colored a tea pot and a couple of cups on a piece of the Just Add Color Specialty DSP with my Melon Mambo, Pear Pizzazz, Sweet Sugarplum, Flirty Flamingo and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Write Markers.  Then I fussy cut them and adhered them on the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals and Liquid Glue.  And that was it for the card front!

On the inside, I stamped another Lemon Zest slice twice in Daffodil Delight ink, without re-inking between stamps.

I SNAILd the panel to a Melon Mambo 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 more of the lemon slices from Lemon Zest across the front…

…and a virtual Lemon orchard on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Tea for Two!  With lemon, of course, courtesy of the Lemon Zest stamp set.  And adult coloring books are so “in” right now – this Just Add Color is perfectly on-point!  And this isn’t the only design in the set, either.  It’s got a tropical design, an undersea scene, a city scape and a gardening-themed design, too.  Fun fun!  Hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Floral Statements and Birds Thanks

Hey, y’all!  How’s the week going?  Mine’s going – we’re getting things started at work.  Slowly.  But it’s going! 

I made today’s card using the new Floral Statements stamp set and some watercoloring.  And then I added a couple of birds from the Best Birds stamp set and matching Birds & Blooms Thinlits.  Take a look-see:

Now – my color palette came from the Color Throwdown challenge this week – but I missed the deadline to enter.  Which doesn’t change the fact that it drove my color choices!

And the bird theme is from The Paper Players challenge.

I started out by embossing a piece of Crumb Cake card stock in the new Garden Trellis TIEF and then SNAILing it DE-bossed side up to a Lemon-Lime Twist mat.

The art layer is from the Floral Statements stamp set.  I stamped the image in Night of Navy ink onto a Crumb Cake panel.  Using my Aqua Painter, I pulled color from the image outlines into the rest of the image.  Love the faded vintage look that gave me, don’t you?

I used the Night of Navy Stampin’ Write Marker to darken the letters up a bit – and brushed them with my Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush.  Then I matted it on Lemon-Lime Twist card stock and popped it over the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I wrapped a piece of new Pool Party 3/8″ Shimmer Ribbon around the card front, securing it in the back with scotch tape.

My birds, from the Birds & Blooms Thinlits, are both cut in Pool Party card stock.  Then I used some Liquid Glue to adhere them over Lemon-Lime Twist card stock and fussy cut them.

I popped the large bird on with Liquid Glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals and the smaller with just Liquid Glue.  Then I brushed them both with the Clear Wink and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped the branch from the Best Birds stamp set in Crumb Cake on a Very Vanilla panel.  I pulled the color into the branch with my Aqua Painter and used my Lemon-Lime Twist Stampin’ Write Marker to color the leaves.  I cut two more of the Birds & Blooms small birds – just like the one on the front – and perched them on the branch with Liquid Glue.

I SNAILd the panel to a Lemon-Lime Twist mat and into my Night of Navy card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got a Pool Party bird from the Best Birds stamp set, with wings colored with my Lemon-Lime Twist Stampin’ Write Marker…

…and then I embossed the envelope flap in the Garden Trellis TIEF.

Et Voila!  I love this Floral Statements stamp set – and a quick pull of color using an Aqua Painter gives big impact tout-suite!  And who wouldn’t want to see a Pool Party and Lemon-Lime Twist bird?!?  Hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Bouquet Anniversary Card!

Happy Monday, y’all!  Hope you had a great weekend!  I really actually did!  Got cards made, signed up a new demonstrator into the Critters-N-Creatin’ Knew (Hi, Lynda!!), did a video last night – and still got a few naps, a little extra sleep, a few movies watched and the grocery shopping done!  Boom! 🙂

So yesterday, I gave you a tease of my card for my Facebook Live video.  Here’s a reminder.

Well, the more I looked at that card – the less I liked it.  So…I started over on Sunday morning.  And I did about 4 different embossed card fronts before I found the one that made me happy.  Still used the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set and matching Bouquet Bunch Framelits.  Take a look-see:

If you joined me last night, you got to see how I made this one.  If not – you can check it out right here on YouTube!

First off, I stamped the sentiment from the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set in Marina Mist ink in the corner of the Very Vanilla panel.  I covered it with a small piece of Sticky Note and then made the light Powder Pink embossed “brick wall” – by sponging over the brick patterned Pattern Party Mask with Powder Pink ink and then applying the Embossing Paste.  That pulled just a little of the pink into the paste!  Once it dried, I lightly sponged over the top with more Powder Pink ink and used Fast Fuse to adhere it to a Marina Mist mat.

I created the bouquet by stamping flowers in Marina Mist and Daffodil Delight and cutting them with their dies in the matching Bouquet Bunch Framelits.  The tulips are two piece flowers – the video shows you how to make those!

I also cut a few Powder Pink and Whisper White flower clusters as well as a Pear Pizzazz bunch of stems.

Then I put the bouquet together with Liquid Glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I created a “wrapper” with Crumb Cake ink and adhered it over the stems, then I added a double-strand bow of Linen Thread with a dab of Liquid Glue.  Finally, I adhered another Marina Mist flower and a couple of Pear Pizzazz leaves in the corner and added some Glitter Enamel Dots to the Marina Mist flowers. And that was it for the card front.

On the inside, I stamped two more sentiments from Beautiful Bouquet – one in Marina Mist and one in Pear Pizzazz in the middle of a Very Vanilla panel.  Over that, I stamped a cluster of flowers in stamped-off-once Powder Pink.  The flower in the corner is stamped in Marina Mist, covered with a mask, and then decorated with a couple of Pear Pizzazz leaves.  And, since it seemed like a good idea, I also added a Glitter Enamel Dot to the flower center!

I SNAILd the panel to a Marina Mist mat and into my Basic Black card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.  

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got another Marina Mist Beautiful Bouquet flower and Pear Pizzazz leaves on the front…

…and then I added more of the Powder Pink flower clusters on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Hope you’re love love loving the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set and Bouquet Bunch bundle, cuz I sure am!  The set has so many pretty sentiments that, although this one is an Anniversary card – you could simply change up the sentiment (all with this one stamp set!) and go a whole ‘nuther direction!  And – the embossing paste and Pattern Party masks are a lot of fun for adding cool texture to your projects.  Hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Bouquet Anniversary Sneak Peek

Good mornin’!  Hope your weekend is going well!  I’ve been pretty darned lazy so far – so this day I need to hit it a little.  But it was really nice to sort of laze around yesterday – watched some movies.  Took a couple of naps.  Did a little grocery shopping!  🙂

As is becoming my habit – I’m going to tease you a little with this post!  Tonight, I’ll be playing with the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set and matching Bouquet Bunch Framelits!  I’ll go live on my Stamps-N-Lingers Facebook page at 8pm Eastern, so I hope you’ll join me.  Here’s a peek at what I’ll be making!

Hmmm – is that a brick wall behind the flowers?  Made with…Embossing Paste?!?

Could be….could be! 😉

Tomorrow I’ll show my usual pictures with all the card cuts and a link to the video.  

This one may take a minute, so be sure to have on your cozy-comfy’s and maybe have a cuppa something good!  Here’s a link to my Facebook page.

I do hope you’ll join me tonight

Stampin’ Up! Delightful Daisy Delight in the Round!

Happy weekend, y’all!  Hope yours is going well so far. 🙂  I thought I had to work today, but…my guys worked extra long last night and at 6:30 we realized we’d get the whole, entire, beautiful two weekend days off!!  Whoo-hoo-hoo-hoo-HOO!!! 🙂  I’m ready – and I know they sure are, too!

My card today is so quick and easy to put together – thanks to some beautiful Wood Textures DSP and Delightful Daisy DSP, a couple of stamped images from the matching Daisy Delight stamp set and some Circle Dies.  Take a look-see:

 

This unusual layout was inspired by the sketch challenge at Freshly Made Sketches this week.

And many of the elements were inspired by the inspiration photo from the Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge.

I had an Old Olive card base from a previous effort (that I ended up not using!) and it already had the front of the card base embossed in the new Pinewood Planks Dynamic TIEF.  It seemed sort of perfect for this one, so I just pulled it back out to use!  Sometimes it’s good to be a pack-rat!! 🙂

I started with a piece of Wood Textures DSP and ran it thru the Big Shot in the Pinewood Planks Dynamic TIEF, then I matted it on some Daffodil Delight card stock.  

After that, it was just a matter of cutting the Daffodil Delight scalloped circle mats and picking and cutting my favorite papers from the Delightful Daisy DSP.  I used the Circles Layering Framelits – making this a quick task.

Well…all but picking my favorite papers from the Delightful Daisy DSP pack.  That took a minute – too many to choose from! 🙂

I adhered everything together and then to the card front with Liquid Glue.

For my sentiment, I stamped the pretty one from Daisy Delight in Old Olive onto a Whisper White strip, snipped a banner end and then edged the whole thing with my Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Write Marker.

I cut a piece of 5/8″ Burlap Ribbon, cut the ends to a banner and attached it to my sentiment with a handheld stapler.  It’s popped on the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

To finish off, I tied a small bow with Linen Thread and attached it with a little dab of Liquid Glue, then added some Old Olive Glitter Enamel Dots, and the card front was done!

On the inside, I used the pretty little flower stamp from the Daisy Delight stamp set and stamped it a couple of times on a piece of Whisper White.  They each got a quick stem with my Old Olive Stampin’ Write Marker.  Then I cut it with another Circle Layering Framelits die and matted it on a scalloped Daffodil Delight mat.

I matted the panel on a Daffodil Delight mat and into my Old Olive card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more of the Daisy Delight flowers on the front…

…and then I added a little more of the Delightful Daisy DSP to the envelope flap.

 

Et Voila!  Even without the Daisy Punch, this Delightful Daisy Suite is wonderful and gorgeous!  And it combines so nicely with the Wood Textures DSP to make a quick and easy card.  Hope you like! 🙂
