Stampin’ Up! Perennial Floral Essence Sneak Peek for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hey y’all – it’s Thursday, so it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!!  Today’s Hop is a sketch challenge and I’m excited to see what everyone comes up with –  I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop!

For mine today, I pulled out some of the prettiest DSP that you’re ever going to see – the Perennial Essence DSP in the new 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.  It’s going to be available on 4 Jun – along with the rest of the Perennial Essence Suite.  Take a look-see:

Yep – that’s the paper doing all the work, folks!

Here’s the sketch we were all working with.

I started with some of that pretty paper and matted it on Crushed Curry for the card front.

Then, using two different designs from the paper pack, I cut two banner strips.  I bannerized the ends by sticking the strip in the back of the Tailored Tag Punch (yes, I left my Banner Triple Punch at home.  Do not ask me why!).

I adhered both banners to the card front with Liquid Glue.

For the flowers, I stamped the image from the Floral Essence stamp set 4 times in Crushed Curry on some…So Saffron Vellum Card Stock!!  Whoo-hooo!!  COLORED Vellum.  You can get it and Old Olive and Petal Pink all in a 12″ x 12″ combo pack when the new catalog comes out in June!

Once the flowers were good and dry, I punched them all out with the Perennial Flower Punch (bundled with the Floral Essence stamp set in the new catalog) and created flowers by stacking two together with a Stampin’ Dimensional.

I added a fuzzy Perennial Essence Flower Center to each flower and set them aside for a minute.

On a piece of Petal Pink paper from the Perennial Essence DSP, I stamped the Floral Essence sentiment in Blackberry Bliss ink using my Stamparatus.  Over the sentiment, I added the Floral Essence flower image in Petal Pink.  Then I cut it all out with a Stitched Shapes Framelits circle die.  I adhered the circle to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stuck a Perennial Essence Flower Center onto the sentiment circle, popped the two Vellum flowers on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped the Floral Essence flower a few times in Petal Pink in the corner of more of the Perennial Essence DSP.  I gave each flower a center with the little image from Floral Essence in stamped-off-twice Crushed Curry.

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Floral Essence flowers and centers (in full strength Crushed Curry) on the front…

…and I used a little more of the Perennial Essence DSP on the envelope flap!

Et Voila!  Oh my goodness, you guys!!  THIS.  PAPER.  IS.  SPECTACULAR!  Each piece brings more stunning gorgeousness – like Monet painting after Monet painting!  Wow!  It works so perfectly with the coordinating Floral Essence stamp set and bundled Perennial Flower Punch, too.  You’re truly going to love this one!  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Beach Happy and Follow Your Art Sneak Peek

You KNOW!

I know you know.

So…I won’t even say it.

YOU say it!

And when you’ve said it, we can take a look at a fun little card I made with the Beach Happy stamp set (which is retiring – so get it quick!) and some new Follow Your Art DSP (coming on 4 Jun in the new 2019-2020 Annual Catalog).  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from this week’s As You See It Challenge.

 

And the challenge over at The Paper Players just warmed my fussy-cutting-loving heart!

I started with a Whisper White panel and, in Mint Macaron and Crumb Cake, stamped the palm tree fronds and trunk from the Beach Happy stamp set – using my Stamparatus.  Then I embossed it in the Seaside TIEF – which is ALSO retiring!  I stamped the image and embossed the panel with it larger than I wanted – then I cut it down to size with my Trimmer.  I matted the panel on a piece of Pacific Point card stock for the card front.

I cut a strip of Coastal Cabana paper from the new Follow Your Art DSP and used the Tailored Tag Punch to bannerize the ends.  Then I adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I trimmed a retiring Colored Doily in Grapefruit Grove down a little then adhered it over the banner with Liquid Glue.

The Mint Macaron 1/4″ Textile Ribbon, coming in the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog, is looped and adhered with a few Glue Dots.

For the art, I stamped the beach chair and umbrella image in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Whisper White, then I cut it with a Stitched Shapes Framelits oval die.  I added the Beach Happy sentiment in Pacific Point.  I popped the oval onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a piece of Coastal Cabana paper from Follow Your Art, I stamped the beach chair again in Tuxedo Black and fussy cut the sections of the chair.  With my Journaling Pen, I traced the lines on each piece to make them a little more bold.  Then I adhered the pieces to the art panel with Liquid Glue.  I did the same with the umbrella image – on a different design paper in Follow Your Art.

I added a couple three Mint Macaron Share What You Love Artisan Pearls and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added another palm tree from Beach Happy in Mint Macaron and Crumb Cake to a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the hat image in Pacific Point, then repeated it on the Follow Your Art DSP – fussy cut it, and adhered it to the hat.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Pacific Point mat and into my Mint Macaron card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another Beach Happy tree on the front…

…and some more Follow Your Art DSP on the envelop flap.

Et Voila!  I LOVE paper piecing, y’all – and this new Follow Your Art DSP is just flat perfect for the technique – especially with the Beach Happy stamp set, don’t you think??  I sure do hope you like and will give it a try!  And – get these retiring goodies (Beach Happy, Seaside TIEF, and the Colored Doilies) before they’re gone forever!

Stampin’ Up! Magnolia Lane No-Ink Memories & More Sneak Peek

Happy Tuesday, y’all!  Hope the week is going well for you!  We’ve finally got warm weather up here, so it’s nice to be able to NOT have to wear all our heavy insulated winter gear! 🙂

My card today is another no-ink card.  And it uses another new (available 4 June) set of Memories & More Cards – this is the Magnolia Lane set.  Once I opened it up last Saturday to share with you, my brain had been making this card!  Of course, I also used the new (coming on 4 June in the new catalog) Magnolia Lane Large Specialty Cards & Envelopes, too.  And – that was about all I needed!  Take a look-see:

The layout for this card comes from the sketch portion of this week’s FUSION Challenge.

Here’s a reminder of all the wonderful goody-goodness in the new Magnolia Lane Suite! 🙂

And here’s the Magnolia Memories & More Card Pack and Large Specialty Cards & Envelopes!

I started with one of those cards and one small sentiment panel from the Card Pack.  I matted the panel on a piece of Basic Black cardstock and popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut a strip from another panel of the Card Pack and matted it on Basic Black, too.  Then I adhered three of the fun Magnolia Lane Cork Embellishments and added the whole thing to the card front with more Liquid Glue.

I tied a Linen Thread Double-Loop bow and stuck it on with a Glue Dot.  Over top is a simple bow tied from some new Mossy Meadow Linen Thread.  This new Linen Thread is part of the Magnolia Lane Ribbon Combo Pack – and you’ll be able to get IT on 4 June, too!

And – y’all?  That was all the front of this card needed!

For the inside, I used a large panel from the card pack and added a single magnolia sticker – which is just one of the cool embellishments included in the Magnolia Lane Memories & More Card Pack.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Basic Black mat and into my Large Specialty Card – and that was it!

My envelope – also part of the Magnolia Lane Large Specialty Cards & Envelopes – got another couple of stickers on the front…

…and I simply adhered one of the INCLUDED envelope liners inside to finish it off!  How beautiful is that liner?!? 🙂

Et Voila!  This entire Magnolia Lane Suite is going to be my favorite, I’m pretty sure!  I love the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set and matching Magnolia Memory Dies – even though I didn’t need them for this card!  And I’ve become a total fan of Memories & More Card Packs in general – and this one in particular!  It is simply a most spectacular suite of goodies – I hope you like and have added it to your GOTTA HAVE IT lists! 🙂

No new pictures of the Man until I can get home to take them! 🙁

My Mom sent me this little cartoon – and it seemed pretty perfect for this part of my post – one that centers on my sweet Finn – who loves me no matter how fat or skinny I am, no matter if I’ve washed (or even finger-combed!) my hair or put make-up on.  All of you who are loved by a dog understand this picture.

Stampin’ UP! Memorable Mosaic Mood Sneak Peek

Good morning!  Hope you had a wonderful weekend – and, if you’re one of those lucky ones for whom the weekend was “long” and you have today off, too – here’s to a great Monday off! 🙂

My card today is a sneak peek of the new Mosaic Mood Suite of products in the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog!  This suite, along with the entire wonderful catalog, will be available to customers on 4 June.  However – if you wanted it earlier than that, Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators can order an entire month early – on 2 May!  And that includes NEW demonstrators – who can select from the Pre-Order products to fill their Starter Kit!  Give me a holler if you’d like more info – you can also go to my Join My Team page for answers to many of your questions about joining us.  I’d love to have you on my team!

From the suite, I used the Memorable Mosaic stamp set and some Mosaic Mood Specialty DSP – plus a couple of fun Flower Faceted Gems to create a clean and simple thank you card.  Take a look-see:

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

I started with a plain Very Vanilla panel matted on some new (coming on 4 Jun) Terracotta Tile card stock for the card front.

Next up, I trimmed down two strips of Mosaic Mood Specialty DSP and matted them on Terracotta Tile, too.  Then I adhered the matted strips to the card front with Liquid Glue.

For the art, I used my Stamparatus to first stamp the leaves image from Memorable Mosaic (4 Jun) in Mint Macaron on a Very Vanilla panel.  Now, for this card, I wanted a sort of minimal look (I know – weird for me!), but…this image would look super cool if you stamped once – offset the image a smidge (I’d go DOWN and to the RIGHT!) – and stamped again without re-inking!

I added the tree trunk in Soft Suede.

Finally, in the new Terracotta Tile color, I added the sentiment.  Then I matted the panel on Terracotta Tile and popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I did a quick fussy cut of a Crushed Curry butterfly from the Mosaic Mood Specialty DSP and added it with some Liquid Glue.  I gave it a Mint Macaron body with a few Share What You Love Artisan Pearls (these are RETIRING, folks – so be SURE to grab some up to have plenty in your tool box!).

I added two Flower Faceted Gems to the panel and the card front was done!

On the inside, I used the Stamparatus again to add a second image from Memorable Mosaic to a Very Vanilla panel in Terracotta Tile.  Then I used my Dark Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blend to color the single word.  I stamped a flower in Crushed Curry and added a Mint Macaron Share What You Love Artisan Pearl.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Terracotta Tile mat and into my Mint Macaron card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got another Mint Macaron and Soft Suede tree on the front, plus a few Crushed Curry Flowers.  I added centers to the flowers with the Dark Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blend…

…and I gave the envelope flap a little more of the Mosaic Mood Specialty DSP to the envelope flap!

Et Voila!  Isn’t this a fun Suite??  I love the images and sentiments – and the paper is gorgeous!  Also – there’s an embossing folder that will be available when the suite comes out in the catalog on 4 June!  I hope you like – and are already adding it to your Wish List!

Or…click these links to go to my Online Store for the most up-to-date information!

Please note, some of the bundle items may be carrying over into the new 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.  However, the bundle pricing will go away, so get them while you can at the discounted price!

Carryover Clear-Mount and Wood-Mount Stamps

There are stamp sets that are currently offered in clear-mount or wood-mount (in the 2018–2019 Annual Catalog), that ARE carrying over – but are being transitioned to Cling Mount.

These transition sets that will be in the 2019–2020 annual catalog –  will continue to be offered in clear-mount and/or wood-mount until existing inventory has been depleted or until June 4, 2019 (whichever comes first).  If the inventory is depleted, you will be notified of the automatic switch to cling when placing an order for that stamp set. This means that you may end up purchasing select cling stamp sets (in carryover artwork) before they can be ordered from the catalog!  All carryover rubber stamp sets will be available in cling medium only (with the exception of background stamps in North America) beginning June 4, 2019.

Click here to see the list of stamp sets that ARE carrying over as Cling sets. 🙂

Happy Shopping!

Stampin’ UP! Easter Greetings from Fable Friends and New Catalog Sneak Peek Video

Happy Easter, my friends!  I hope your day of Celebration is wonderful!

I am spending the day with some very old friends – THEY’RE not old, our FRIENDSHIP is old! – and am looking forward to seeing them again after too long apart.

I took a couple of little bags – made with the Envelope Punch Board, some Happiness Blooms DSP and the Fable Friends stamp set – to the two boys.  They’re filled with chocolate, so I suspect they’ll be happy to get them.  I also suspect they won’t care a fig about the decorations! 😉

I have a video and card cuts on a blog post (here) or on YouTube showing how to make these Envelope Punch Board gift bags if you’d like to see!  Here’s a link to the video on YouTube.

If you were able to join me last night for my 2019-2010 Annual Catalog pre-order reveal, I appreciate you spending part of the holiday weekend with me!  If not, but you’d like to see just a little sampling of the goodies that are headed your way on 4 June…check out the video right here!

Be sure you’re on my list to get the new catalog in May, okay?  You can scroll down for all the deets.

I’ll be back tomorrow with a card made with one of my new toys.  Er….tools!

In the meantime…

Stampin’ UP! Wonderful Romance in Lemon Lime Twist

Good Friday!

Literally! 🙂

Hope you have a good Easter weekend planned – I’m headed over to our friends’ place in DE on Sunday.  We’ll go to church and then I’ll spend the day with them before returning “home” in the afternoon.  It’s been a minute since I’ve seen them, so I’m looking forward to it! 🙂

My card today is a bit of a tribute to two things leaving us at the end of May – the Wonderful Romance stamp set and…LEMON LIME TWIST!!  How many of you LOVE LLT like I do!?!  I was happy we got Granny Apple Green, which I also love, but…I’ll miss the bright pops of Lemon Lime Twist.  This is a monochromatic card featuring this fave LOUD and CLEAR.  Take a look-see:

Hang with me, folks – there’s a method to my madness!  This color scheme is thanks to this week’s Global Design Project challenge.

I assume you know what my color of choice is…?

And the layout is from this FabFriday challenge.

I started with some Gingham Gala DSP (this is going away TOO!! – so getcha some now if you want a stash of it!) in Lemon Lime Twist and matted it on Lemon Lime Twist for the card front.

To create the frame, I used two Rectangle Stitched Framelits – the large one and one that is TWO sizes down from it – and ran them thru the Big Shot on a piece of Lemon Lime Twist card stock.

On a piece of Whisper White, I stamped the large floral image from Wonderful Romance in Lemon Lime Twist ink.  Then I used my Clear Wink of Stella as a paintbrush to color the leaves with…say it with me…Lemon Lime Twist.  This is a great way to add color and shine all at once – and you can add shading simply by adding more or less ink!

I cheated the monochromatic theme ever so slightly – and lightly touched the middle of the larger flowers and the tiny flowers in Powder Pink with the Clear Wink of Stella brush.

I adhered the art behind the LLT frame with Liquid Glue and popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The sentiment, from Wonderful Romance, is stamped in LLT on Whisper White, cut with a Stitched Shapes Framelits circle die, and matted on a LLT Starburst Punch mat.  Then I adhered it with Liquid Glue.

A few Pearl Basic Jewels and simple bow tied with a double length of Whisper White Solid Baker’s Twine finished off the card front.

On the inside, I stamped the leaf image from Wonderful Romance twice in LLT and colored them with my Clear Wink of Stella.  Then I added a few Pearl Basic Jewels.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Lemon Lime Twist 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 Wonderful Romance leaves on the front…

…and I put a little more Gingham Gala DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Not gonna fib ya – I kind of love this card!  The Wonderful Romance floral looks clean and bright in – mostly! – Lemon Lime Twist, don’t you think?  And Gingham Gala will forever be a favorite of mine!  There’s a lot on this card that’s leaving us soon – so…I hope you like AND that you’re snapping these up!  Get your inks, refills and Card Stocks in the 2017-2019 In Colors right away – they’re only available while supplies last – and they won’t last long!

Hey y’all – it’s Thursday, so it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!!  Today’s Hop is a Color challenge and I’m excited to see what everyone comes up with –  I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop.

Now, our color scheme really called out for the Happiness Blooms suite, and I went smack dab with the subliminal suggestion!  I used the Bloom By Bloom (retiring!) stamp set, and paired it with a simple sentiment from Fabled Friends (carrying over – YEAH!) to create a spring-y Easter card.  Take a look-see:

And, although I feel sure you can figure it out, here’s our color scheme –

I borrowed a layout from this week’s Tuesday Morning Sketches.

I started with some Call Me Clover paper from the Happiness Blooms DSP and double-matted it on Pineapple Punch and Calypso Coral for the card front.

My art is from the Bloom By Bloom set.  I used my Stamparatus so that I could stamp the same image mulitple times.  First I inked the small flower stamp with Pineapple Punch, then I used a Sponge Dauber to add some Calypso Coral around the edges.  I made three of these flowers and cut them out with a Stitched Shapes Framelits square die.

I cut three Pineapple Punch mats with a scalloped Squares Layering Framelits die and adhered them all together to create three matted art pieces.

I used my Stampartatus again to stamp the little sentiment from Fable Friends in Call Me Clover on what would become the middle art square.

I popped each square onto a strip of Calypso Coral card stock with Stampin’ Dimensionals, then adhered the whole thing to the card front with Liquid Glue.

A Happiness Blooms Enamel Dot or three finished off the card front!

On the inside, I added a few more Pineapple Punch and Calypso Coral flowers from the Bloom by Bloom stamp set, plus a couple Call Me Clover leaves, to a Whisper White panel.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Pineapple Punch and Calypso Coral mat, then into my Call Me Clover 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 flowers and leaves on the front…

…and the envelope flap got more Happiness Blooms DSP!

Et Voila!  I do love this sweet Bloom by Bloom flower set and the colorfully cheerful Happiness Blooms DSP – and you’re going to want to get them added to your stash before they retire!  Fable Friends is an awesome stamp set – perfect for Spring and Easter cards – and I’m tickled it made it into the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog!  I 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’s page. And you can just click on the names below to go direct to all the blogs!

Stampin’ UP! Mosaic Mood Daisy Lane Sneak Peek

Guess what DAY IT IS?!?  Yep!  You know it to be THAT DAY!

I’ve got a sneak peek for you today – we got the new Daisy Lane stamp set AND a pack of Mosaic Mood Specialty DSP as a little part of our “swag” at OnStage last weekend – as well as the new Timeless Label Punch (all of these will be available to customers on 4 Jun 19!).  So – since I’d been so excited to get these little goodies, I decided to share a project I made with them!  Take a look-see:

I took a little inspiration for some of the elements on the card from the samples in the new 2019-2020 Annual Catalog!  And – I let the theme from this week’s Just Us Girls Challenge give me a hand, too!

Before we get too far – check the Daisy Lane stamp set (coming on 4 Jun).  This one coordinates with the Daisy Punch (which you may already have – if you don’t, you can pick it up right now and be ready!) and…there’s a new MEDIUM DAISY PUNCH coming in the catalog!!  Whoo-hooo!

And check out this gorgeous Mosaic Mood Specialty DSP!  It’s got mosaic tile images with shiny accents and I love it already!

Okay – so let’s make a card!

I started with some Very Vanilla, matted on Soft Suede for the card front.  On top of that, I used Liquid Glue to adhere a square of the Mosaic Mood Specialty DSP (4 Jun availability).

For the art panel, I first used my Stamparatus to stamp a couple of leaves and stems from Daisy Lane in Mint Macaron on a Very Vanilla panel.  I also inked the smallest daisy image from Daisy Lane in Crushed Curry, stamped it off once, and added it a couple of times around the leaves.

Then I matted the panel on Soft Suede and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

On a separate piece of Very Vanilla, I stamped three large daisies and three medium daisies from Daisy Lane in Crushed Curry.  I punched the large ones with the Daisy Punch – and fussy cut the smaller ones.  In about a month, I’ll use the Medium Daisy Punch – and YOU SHOULD, TOO! 🙂

I built my flowers by adhering them together with a Stampin’ Dimensional – either regular size or mini.  Then I added a Gold Faceted Gem to the middle of each flower.

The sentiment, also from Daisy Lane, is stamped in Mint Macaron on Very Vanilla and cut out with the new Timeless Label Punch (4 Jun).  I added some small Daisy Lane daisies over top in stamped-off-once Crushed Curry.  Then I used my Soft Suede Stampin’ Write Marker to edge the label.

I created a “pot” with a strip of Soft Suede (for the top “rim”) and an angled piece that I also embossed in the Basket Weave Dynamic TIEF (carrying over!).  I adhered the pot to the panel with Liquid Glue and popped the “rim” on with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the stacked daisies and Stampin’ Dimensionals for the sentiment.  Then I added a Mint Macaron bow from Nature’s Twine and a final Gold Faceted Gem.  Then I fussy cut a few leaves from the Mosaic Mood Specialty DSP and stuck them in here and there with Liquid Glue to finish the card front.  Check that adorable bee!

On the inside, I used my Stamparatus to add a second sentiment from Daisy Lane in Mint Macaron on a Very Vanilla panel – then I added a stamped-off-once Crushed Curry daisy over top.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Soft Suede mat and into my Mint Macaron card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got more daisies on the front – I stamped the ones on the right side twice without re-inking, and the one on the left is stamped-off-once…

…and I added a little more Mosaic Mood Specialty DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voial!  Oh.  My.  Goodness!!  How awesome is this stamp set, y’all!??  And the beautiful Mosaic Mood Specialty DSP?  I mean seriously!  And the fact that we’re getting a new Medium Daisy Punch (and the current Daisy Punch AND Daisy Delight stamp sets are carrying over!!) means we’re going to have SO many options for creating gorgeous florals on our projects!  Get the Daisy Delight stamp set and Daisy Punch NOW and then add these new goodies to your wish list!

Hope you like!
