Stampin’ Up! Label Me a Bold Bee for The Paper Players

I’ve got another fun challenge for you from the Paper Players – it’s a sketch challenge to help jump-start your creative mojo this week!  I hope you’ll come and play along.  🙂

If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video, I appreciate you spending some of your weekend with me!  If not, but you’d like to see the replay on YouTube…here ’tis!

I made two different cards this time around – with the Label Me Bold stamp set and some Golden Honey Specialty DSP as the main ingredients for both versions.  Take a look-see:

And here’s this week’s Paper Players theme challenge!  Join the fun and show us your projects!  I can’t wait to see what you create!  🙂

Although I didn’t use the exact colors, I pulled my color scheme from this week’s CAS Colours & Sketches challenge.

 

And the paper choice comes from the TGIF Product Spotlight Challenge.

And – I also think these have a Masculine Twist, so…they fit right in with the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.

Thanks to some Stampin’ Blends and the gorgeous Golden Honey Specialty DSP – these cards are easy-peasy!

I started with some black and white striped DSP and colored the white stripes with my Light Pumpkin Pie and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends.  The middle few stripes are colored with the Dark Daffodil Delight Blend.  TIP:  use long, straight strokes of the brush tip on your Blends.  The color will look better – regardless of which side you use!

I adhered the colored paper to a Basic Black mat for the card front.

For the art, panel – I used the splotch image from the Label Me Bold stamp set – and stamped it three times – the top is stamped-off-once Pumpkin Pie, then stamped-off-once Daffodil Delight.  I finished up with stamped-off-once Old Olive.

Using the stars image in the set, I stamped it three times in Versamark Ink and then sprinkled them with Shimmer Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  I heat set the powder with my Heat Tool.  Then I matted the panel on Basic Black.

I stuck a couple of Glue Dots in the middle of the panel and wound a length of black twine from the Country Club Baker’s Twine Combo pack in a figure-eight “bow”.  Then I popped the panel onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

With a star die in the Stitched Stars Die set, I cut a Vellum cardstock star.

For the sentiment, I stamped two images from Label My Bold in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Whisper White.  I cut them both with a narrow die from the Stitched Rectangle Die set.  I had to manipulate it a little to make it small enough for the sentiment (check it out on the video).

I lined everything up on the card and then adhered the two sentiments to the Vellum star with Liquid Glue.

I added some Dimensionals under the sentiments and then popped the whole thing over my “bow” – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped the splotch image again in Old Olive – this time I stamped it off on scrap paper TWICE before adding it to my Whisper White panel.  Over that I added another Label Me Bold sentiment in Tuxedo Black.  I stamped some Tuxedo Black stars next to the sentiment.

 

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got a stamped-off-once Old Olive splotch – and some Tuxedo Black stars on the front…

…and more colored Golden Honey Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  The Label Me Bold stamp set is what I call a “fly-over” set – it’s easy to miss it – or to dismiss it!  Heck – I almost did!  But – I love the simplicity of the sentiments and the ability to use them with various dies – or even quickly fussy cut them.  Adding color here and there is easy with the other grpahic images in the set.  And – how happy are you that the Golden Honey Specialty DSP is BACK IN STOCK – and get-able for FREE with a $50 purchase during Sale-A-bration!

I hope you like!

The other day, while Wayne and I were eating lunch in the kitchen – as is his usual – Finn ate his breakfast.

Yes.  He saves his breakfast to eat while we’re eating our lunch.  He’s THAT dog.

Anyway – once he was done – he hurried into the living room.

A moment later – here he came.  With his essentially-dead-only-half-of-him-remains bear.

He loves that bear.

He entertained himself for a couple of minutes and then decided we were probably done eating and probably really wanted to play.

Dad?

Mom?

Since he had completely misjudged our level of “doneness” with lunch, he was….disappointed.

Bummer, dude. 🙁

So – today’s FFF is a blatant brag on my oh-so-smart-and-obedient boy. Straight up proud-mama stuff. 😉

A little backstory.  When I clean the stalls each morning – I can usually go three days before I have to run the manure spreader around the pasture – in the winter!!  On Wednesday, even though the weather was pretty okay at that moment (ie: not raining cats and dogs) – I decided to NOT run it.  It was only day 2!

Of course – I KNEW it would be pouring the aforementioned cats-and-dogs on Thursday.  But…I still…didn’t.

On Thursday – as expected – I HAD to run the manure spreader.  And – the dogs – the cats – all coming down.

I just saw a cat AND a dog come down, mom!!

Now, normally the Man goes with me so that he can galloomph around and sniffle and snuffle and splash in every mud puddle he can find.

But – I decided I didn’t want him to be a soaking wet mess. So….in a fit of “maybe I’ll get lucky and he’ll stay put”…I sent him to his mat at the end of the aisle.

And then I started the four-wheeler and hooked up the spreader.

And – he stayed on the mat! 🙂

I headed out and did my thing – glancing back at the barn every three seconds to see if he was standing at the gate in the pouring down cats-and-dogs.

But…when I pulled back into the barn…

…there he was.  Right.  Where.  I.  Told him to stay! 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂

Folks – that was a long-distance, out-of-sight, with a HUGE attraction (the four wheeler) down/stay!

I mean…SERIOUS props to my wiggle-butt!!

I gave him an extra peppermint!  He TOTALLY earned that!

Now – it turns out that ‘bedience is EXHAUSTING!!

Next picture is gratuitous cuteness overload!

You’re welcome! 😉

Smart and cute all wrapped up in one furry package?  I am a lucky mom!

Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Parisian Poppies Double Flip Fun Fold!

Good Friday morning, y’all!!  Another week – done!   Did it feel shorter (and hence…better!) with the Monday holiday??

If you were able to join me for my YouTube Live Video yesterday –  I appreciate you spending some of your day with me!  If not, but you’d like to see the replay on YouTube…here ’tis!

I saw this Double Flip-Fold card on France Martin’s blog and thought it was so fun and easy….which it totally is!  I decided to use the Peaceful Moments Bundle and Painted Poppy stamp set – combined with gorgeous Parisian Blossom Specialty DSP.  Take a look-see:

The front of the card was already close to the FUSION sketch challenge this week – I simply modified the position of the flip portion (sliding it to the rigth instead of centered like a “normal” double-flip).  That gave me more room to collagify!

I started with the “first” card base – Basic Black at 4 1/4″ x 8 1/2″ and scored and folded it at 5 1/2″.  The “Flip” is Basic Black, 3″ x 8 1/2″, scored and folded at 4 1/4″.

I used the gorgeous Parisian Blossoms Specialty DSP on the front short panel of the first card base and on the inside back – both pieces are matted on Pool Party and adhered with Liquid Glue.

On the flip card base, I used my Stamparatus to stamp the sentiments from Peaceful Moments in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on two Whisper White panels.  On the inside panel, I also stamped two of the flowers from the Painted Poppies stamp set in Basic Gray – then I colored them with my Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Combo.   I matted each on Pool Party and adhered them inside the smaller flip card base.

Using Liquid Glue, I adhered the small card inside the larger card base.

For my collage, I used multiple dies from the Poppy Moments Die set to cut my flower and a bevy of leaf parts.  The flower has a solid piece of Petal Pink (I used a Sponge Dauber to ink the edges with Petal Pink ink) then I adhered a Basic Gray detailed flower with Liquid Glue. I cut a large flower center from Champagne Foil and adhered it with Liquid Glue, then I popped a smaller Black Foil center on top with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

For the leaves, I cut solid and detailed leaves in Pool Party and Champagne Foil, and also in Pool Party vellum from the So Very Vellum Specialty DSP (coming on 3 March in the second Sale-A-Bration Release!).  I glued the leaf parts together and then…started doing my dry-fit on the front of the card (which is the front of the smaller flip card base!

When I was happy – I took a picture with my phone…

Then I picked up the flower and took a second picture.

I adhered all the leaves with Liquid Glue.

Using Whisper White Solid Baker’s Twine, I made a loose double-loop figure-eight (I show this in the video!) and stuck it in the middle of the leaves with a couple of Glue Dots.  Then I popped the flower over top with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewel – and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another Painted Poppies flower in Basic Gray and Petal Pink on the front…

…and a little more Parisian Blossoms Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This Double-Flip Fun Fold is crazy easy so I hope you’ll try it soon!  I also wanted you to see how well the Peaceful Moments and Painted Poppies Bundles work with other papers like this Parisian Blossoms Specialty DSP!  The Peaceful Poppies DSP is gorgeous but…don’t be afraid to mix-and-match!  I hope you like! 🙂

On Wednesday, we picked up a new toilet.

Yes – the life of a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator is glamourous, indeed.

We’ve needed a new toilet for a minute – in our second bathroom.

By minute, I mean…well.  A MINUTE!

FINALLY broke down and paid for a “special order” toilet.  Meaning – we wanted it in bone.  Seriously?!?  BONE is a “special order”?!?

Why yes.  Yes it is.

Anywho – we finally got it.

So the menfolk put it in on Wednesday evening.

Gettin’ that old one out’s gonna be a booger, Dad.  You’re prolly gonna get wet!

Wiggle it, Dad – you gotta get it down on that wax thingy!

Doya need a tool or anything??  I’m a little thirsty…..how much longer were ya thinkin’??

Hmmm.  Those’r some complicated directions.  Why we reading directions??  We MEN!  Don’t need no stinkin’ directions!

Mary’s note:  that last picture is probably Pulitzer worthy.  Rare sighting of y-chromosomes reading instructions!

Stampin’ Up! All Dressed to Impress 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 a color challenge – 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 the color challenge – I right away thought of the Best Dressed 6″ x 6″ DSP.  And, of course, the coordinating Dressed to Impress stamp set and bundled All Dressed Up Die set.  I ended up not using as much of the DSP as I’d figured, but…well.  Take a look-see:

And – here’s our challenge!

The layout and elements are inspired by Charlet Mallett’s beautiful card at this week’s Global Design Project CASE the Designer challenge!

I started with a piece of Basic Black that I embossed in my Country Floral 3D Embossing Folder and matted on Petal Pink for the card front.

Also from Petal Pink, I cut a single “purse” with the die from the All Dressed Up Die set.  With Paper Snips, I trimmed off all but the large panel.  Then I embossed the die cut piece in the Tufted 3D Embossing Folder.

With the buckle die in the All Dressed Up Die Set I cut a couple of buckles from a Gold Foil sheet.  I ran the end of some Petal Pink 1/4″ Metallic-Edge Ribbon thru each buckle – and then adhered them to the front of my purse with Glue Dots.

Then I popped the purse onto the embossed card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

To get ready to decorate the purse, I cut two Frosted Bouquet “berries” out of Mint Macaron card stock.

On Whisper White, I stamped a bunch of the two different floral images from Dressed To Impress in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored them with my Petal Pink, Lovely Lipstick and Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blend Combo Packs – and cut them with their matching All Dressed Up dies.

I also stamped the sentiment from Dressed To Impress in Lovely Lipstick on Whisper White and cut it with the label die in the set.

To assemble the purse, I first adhered a Petal Pink Best Dressed Tassel on one buckle with a Glue Dot.  Then I started adhering the berries and flowers with Liquid Glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals.  The sentiment is popped on with Dimensionals.

I finished off the card front with Champagne Rhinestones in the middle of each flower – and a small bow from Mint Macaron 1/8″ Sheer Linen Ribbon, adhered with a Glue Dot.

On the inside, I added more Dressed To Impress flowers in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a Whisper White panel.  Around the flowers, I stamped some dots from the set in Mint Macaron.  Finally, I colored the flowers with my Blends and gave them a Champagne Rhinestone.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Petal Pink mat and into my Lovely Lipstick card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Dressed To Impress flowers and dots on the front (no Rhinestones!)….

….and (finally!) some of the gorgeous Best Dressed 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap.

Et voila!  What a fun and flirty purse for Mother’s Day – and still a “card”!  Love the Dressed To Impress stamp set and the versatility of the bundled all Dressed Up Dies!

And – of course! – the uber-gorgeous Best Dressed DSP!  I hope you like – and will have it in your arsenal soon if you don’t already!

Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Poppy Moments Sympathy Card

Happy Happy Hawwmp day, y’all!  We’re here in the south with just a “little rain” this week – LOL.  Which is to say – we’re soaking here.  I actually put a rain jacket on this morning to go out to the barn.  Yes – it’s been THAT wet today.  Bleh!

I took a meander thru my card stash this week and realized that I don’t have any sympathy cards.  We don’t like it, but…we all know that the need for a sympathy card is always looming, right?  I decided that I’d best get busy.  Which is exactly what I did today, using the Peaceful Moments stamp set and just a splash of color from a little Peaceful Poppies DSP.  Take a look-see:

I love this layout and it came from the Mojo Monday sketch challenge!  I’m so glad this challenge was re-invigorated by Julee Tilman!  🙂

I started by cutting the second-to-largest rectangle die from the Stitched So Sweetly Die Set from a Whisper White panel.  I used the same die to cut a Basic Black rectangle.  Then I put the black rectangle in the hole in the white panel – and ran the whole thing thru my die cutting machine in the Stone 3D Embossing Folder (which…comes with the Power Of Hope stamp set as a $100 reward from the 2020 Sale-A-Bration First Release!).

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the Whisper White Panel to a Basic Black met – then adhered the black die cut into the negative space.

I cut the same size rectangle from a piece of the Peaceful Poppies DSP and popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I pulled out my Peaceful Poppies Elements and, on a black circle die cut, stamped the sentiment from Peaceful Poppies in Versamark Ink.  I sprinkled it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat set it with my Heat Tool.

I used some Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere another die cut from Peaceful Poppies Elements – the scalloped-edge strip – across the card front.  Then I popped the circle sentiment on with Dimensionals as well.  And…the card front was done!

On the inside, I used my Stamparatus to add a second sentiment in Tuxedo Black to a Whisper White panel.  On the bottom, I adhered another Peaceful Poppy Element die cut with Liquid Glue.  I also used Liquid Glue to adhere a single Peaceful Poppy Sequin by the sentiment.  With my Poppy Parade Stampin’ Write Marker – I carefully filled in the little hole in the middle of the adhered sequin! 😉

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another Peaceful Poppy Element die cut on the front…

…and a little more Peaceful Poppies DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I do so love this gorgeous Peaceful Poppies DSP, don’t you?  The colors are simply stunning and they can do ALL the work for you!  Add in the sentiments with their beautiful fonts from the Peaceful Moments stamp set and…boom!!  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Aloha in the Timeless Tropics

Good morning, y’all!  Do you realize that we’re like…exactly half-way thru Sale-A-Bration??  Which means – there’s still time for you to take advantage of the AWESOME joining special we’ve got going on!  And I would sure love to have you join the team – ask me how!!

My card today is from one of my very favorite suites in the 2020 Jan – Jun Mini Catalog – the Tropical Oasis Suite!!  It’s a card that would work great for a retirement – a bon voyage – or just someone who needs to be reminded to chill out and relax every once in a while!  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one comes from this week’s As You See It challenge.

I started with the woven-design paper from the Tropical Oasis DSP and embossed it in the Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder.  Then I matted it on Mango Melody for the card front.

On a piece of Whisper White, I stamped the large flower from Timeless Tropical in Saddle Brown Stazon Ink.  I colored both of them with my Light Mango Melody Stampin’ Blend, adding some additional color with the Light Calypso Coral Blend.  Then I cut them with the matching die in the In the Tropics die set.

I used an Old Olive design from the DSP and cut out a pineapple top and several smaller leaves.  I did the same from a piece of Mossy Meadow card stock (I spritzed the card stock lightly with water, first).

I also cut a strip of another design in the Tropical Oasis DSP and bannerized both ends with Paper Snips.

Finally, I cut three of the Aloha sentiment dies from In the Tropics in Mango Melody and stacked them up with Liquid Glue.

Then – time to collage-i-fy!

I laid everything out – including a short length of 5/8″ Burlap Ribbon…

…and when I liked it – I started building!

I adhered the first stamped flower with Liquid Glue – then added pineapple tops and leaves, all with Liquid Glue.

Then I added the bannerized DSP strip.

I popped the second stamped flower on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

With a little strip of SNAIL, I adhered the Burlap Ribbon.  Then I used Liquid Glue to adhere the stacked sentiment.

I cut several little In the Tropics flowers from Daffodil Delight and Terracotta Tile and adhered them together and then to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I tied a simple bow with a double length of Grapefruit Grove twine from the Nature’s Twine pack and adhered it with a Glue Dot.  Then I added some Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the little flower centers and the card front was done!

On the inside, I used my Stamparatus to stamp the sentiment and trees from Timeless Tropical.  I inked the sentiment in Mango Melody and stamped it on a Whisper White panel.  Then I used a Sponge Dauber to lightly add Terracotta Tile ink to just the tops of the letters and stamped it again.  I did that until I was happy – with a sort of “sunset” look to the sentiment.  For the trees – I did Marker-to-Rubber to color the stamps, with Pear Pizzazz and Old Olive Stampin’ Write Markers on the tree-tops and Crumb Cake and Soft Suede Markers for the trunks.  Another Champagne Rhinestone found its way onto the panel, too!

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Timeless Tropical trees on the front…

…and some Tropical Oasis DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Boy – I do LOVE this Timeless Tropical bundle with the beautiful In the Tropics Dies – look how great they are for making lush, tropical collages!!  Don’t miss out on making leaves from the Tropical Oasis DSP, either!!  Such fun.  I hope you like!

So – the other night Wayne and I went over to our friend’s for dinner.  Finn stayed home sleeping.

While we were there, I gathered a little….evidence.

This is Jax.

Please note the intense and highly focused stare.

Do you recognize the dude with the Fritos?  Perhaps the hat is a clue??

Does this picture remind you of….any OTHER picture you’ve ever seen?

I believe we’ve identified the common denominator…. 😉

Stampin’ Up! Layered With Kindness Thank You

‘Sup, y’all??  Hope you’re enjoying a three-day weekend!  🎶🎵🎶Happy Birthday, Mr. Presssideeeeeeentttt…… 🎵🎶🎶  🙂

My card today uses the new Layered with Kindness stamp set, with the coordinating Label Me Fancy and Label My Lovely Punches.  I added a little Parisian Flourish Embossing, just for ducks.  Take a look-see:

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

And the color scheme is from the Color Throwdown challenge…

I started with a piece of Whisper White that I embossed in the Parisian Flourish 3D Embossing Folder, then matted on Highland Heather for the card front.  The next layer is a strip of Smoky Slate checked paper from the Neutrals 6″ x 6″ DSP, matted on Highland Heather and adhered with Liquid Glue.

I wrapped a length of Mint Macaron 1/8″ Sheer Linen Ribbon around the DSP panel, securing it in the back with Glue Dots.

For the art panel, I stamped the beautiful DistINKtive leaves image from the Layered in Kindness set in Mint Macaron on a piece of Whisper White.  I stamped the leaves twice without re-inking, then turn the paneled 180 degrees and stamped them from that direction – again twice without re-inking.  Using the sweet little flower image, I stamped a few times by the leaves in Highland Heather.

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

On a piece of Smoky Slate, I stamped the Happy Birthday image from the Layered With Kindness set in Mint Macaron ink.  Then I cut it with the Label Me Lovely Punch and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

On Whisper White, in Highland Heather ink, I stamped the thank you sentiment.  Then I cut IT out with the Label Me Fancy Punch and popped it over the Smoky Slate label with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I tied a little bow from the Mint Macaron 1/8″ Sheer Linen Ribbon and adhered it with a Glue Dot.  To finish things off, I added some Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the centers of the flowers.  And that was it for the card front!

On the inside, I stamped the leaves in Mint Macaron – twice without re-inking – on the bottom of a Whisper White panel and added some Highland Heather flowers.

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more flowers and leaves from Layered With Kindness on the front…

…and another piece of Smoky Slate checkered paper on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Wow – how pretty did those Layered With Kindness flowers and leaves turn out in Mint Macaron and Highland Heather?!?  I love this flower image – it’s one of my favorites now that I’ve played with it a bit!  I have no idea what kind they are – but I’d sure love a giant field of them outside my house!  The coordinating Label Me Lovely and Label Me Fancy Punches are perfect with this set, too!

I hope you like and are adding this little group to your must-have list!  If you want to recreate this card – all the Stampin’ Up! products you need are listed down below along with the card cuts!

Did you know…you could pick this whole threesome and STILL have $71 dollars left over to spend if you bought a Starter kit today?  PLUS – you’d get the super cool Mini Cutter, a sampler pack of Designer Paper AND your choice of ANY STAMP SET in the Catalog!!  WOWZA!!  Give me a holler and let me help you join my Stampin’ Up! team today – I’d love to have you on board! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Welcome Easter Birthday Bunny for The Paper Players

I’ve got another fun challenge for you today from the Paper Players – so come on over and play!  We’re playing with a theme challenge, and it’s a fun one – although it includes “clean and simple”  – which….isn’t exactly my comfort zone.  But – I gave it a go – and I hope you will, too! 🙂

If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video, I appreciate you spending some of your weekend with me!  If not, but you’d like to see the replay on YouTube…here ’tis!

I used a new-to-me stamp set called Welcome Easter to make a totally not-Easter card!  With it, I paired the Sale-A-Bration stamp set Happy Birthday to You (available for FREE right now with a $50 retail purchase!) to turn the sweet bunny into a birthday critter.  Take a look-see:

And here’s this week’s Paper Players theme challenge!  Join the fun and show us your projects! I can’t wait to see what you create!  🙂

 

The layout for this one is from this week’s CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge!

I started with a slightly-bigger-than-I-needed piece of Crumb Cake cardstock that I embossed in the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder.  I cut the panel down to size, cut the second-to-largest rectangle die from the Stitched So Sweetly Die set out of the middle of the it – on a jaunty angle.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Petal Pink mat.  Then I popped the die cut rectangle back in its “hole” with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I made the heart using the white-side of a Heart Doily – coloring it with my Dark Petal Pink Stampin’ Blend.  I put a piece of Stampin’ Dimensional under the left side of the heart and used Liquid Glue on the rest of the heart to adhere it to the card front.

On a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock, I stamped the totes-adorbs bunn-ya from Welcome Easter in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored him with my Light Petal Pink, Gray Granite and Crumb Cake Stampin’ blends.  Then I cut him out with a circle Stitched Shapes Die.

I added a couple of bees – also from Welcome Easter – in Tuxedo Black, colored in with my Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Write Marker.

The die cut is adhered with a Dimensional under the right side and Liquid Glue on the rest.

I stamped the Welcome Easter sentiment in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a piece of Petal Pink and cut it with a Stitched So Sweetly rectangle die – then used Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere it to the card front.  And – that was it!

On the inside, I used the sentiment from Happy Birthday To You in Tuxedo Black on a piece of Very Vanilla.  I added the bunny and a few bees, too!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Petal Pink mat and into my Very Vanilla card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got another bunny and bees on the front….

…and some Petal Pink paper from the Subtles 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  That little Welcome Easter bunny makes me smile every time I see him!  As do the other sweet images in the stamp set!

We’ve had a casualty.

Background:

 

It turns out that INFLATABLE balls are perhaps not the best equipped to deal with….teeth.

It took approximately one second for the Big Blue Ball to stop playing.

Finn – couldn’t quite grasp the underlying problem.

Get up!

What’s WRONG with you?!?

Stupid Big Blue Ball. 🙁

Stampin’ Up! Welcome Easter Video Sneak Peek

Happy weekend, y’all!  For some of you – I hope for a LOT of you! – this is a LONG weekend to celebrate all the Presidential birthdays.

Hmmm.  I’m sort of glad most of us don’t get “lumped” into a single birthday, aren’t you?!?

To celebrate their birthdays (not really – but it’s the only gift I’ve got!), I’ll be going live tonight at 7pm Eastern on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page.  Yes, for a minute I’ll keep doing our Saturday videos on Facebook….eventually that may transition to YouTube like our mid-week vids!  For tonight, we’re going to make a sweet little birthday card using the Welcome Easter set (2020 Jan – Jun Mini Catalog) and the Happy Birthday To You set from the first Sale-A-Bration release.  Take a sneaky peek:

It’s a cutie and I think you’ll like it – so I hope you’ll be able to join me!

Tonight.  7pm Eastern.  Right here!

Welcome to our classroom!

The Equipment.

The ball.  Not quite tall enough (I don’t’ think) but…will work to start!

We’ve also got a clicker and a treat pouch loaded with yummy things.

And a purple sticky note as a “target” (Sticky notes – what would I do without them?!?).  UNDER the sticky note is a little smear of….peanut butter.

The Student.

 

Nose-on ball.  Click.

Nose not on ball.  No Click.

Click.

No click.

Repeat until 1) the treats run out or….

…the student leaves to get a drink!  School is thirsty work!

Boring stuff but…the start of learning to “push”! 😉

Stampin’ Up! Tags in Bloom Sneak Peek!

Good Friday morning, y’all!!  Another week – done!   AND – it’s Valentine’s Day! Boom – drop the Mic!

If you were able to join me for my first-ever (but NOT my last!) You Tube Live Video –  I appreciate you spending some of your day with me!  If not, but you’d like to see the replay on YouTube…here ’tis!

This card gives you a sneak peek of one of the new stamp sets coming to you on 3 March 2020 in the Sale-A-Bration Second Release.  The Tags in Bloom photopolymer stamp set – with 19 image, sentiment and frame stamps – will be available for free with a $100 purchase!

The layout for this one was inspired by today’s sketch challenge over at Fab Friday!

And the floral touches are perfect for the Global Design Project theme challenge this week!

This set  coordinates with the Label Me Lovely and Label Me Fancy Punches already available in the 2020 Jan-Jun Mini Catalog.

For this card, I started with a panel of Granny Apple Green – a little bigger than I needed it – and embossed it in the Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing Folder.  Then I cut it down to my desired size.   I “whitewashed” the brick by dragging my Whisper White Craft Ink pad (upside down) lightly across the raised portions, and when it was dry, I matted it on Daffodil Delight to make the card front.

I cut two of the largest scalloped rectangle dies in the Stitched So Sweetly Die set – one in Daffodil Delight and one in Whisper White.  I adhered the Daffodil Delight die cut to the card front with Liquid Glue.

On the Whisper White die cut, I stamped the flower-edged frame from the Tags in Bloom set in Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  Then I turned the die cut 180 degrees and, lining up the frame, inked and stamped the image again.

Using my Granny Apple Green and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends Combos, I colored the leaves and flowers.  I also used my Light Mango Melody Blend on the flowers to add a little extra “oomph” to the shading on the flowers.

I popped the completed panel over the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Across the middle, I adhered a short length of Granny Apple Green 1/2″ Textured Weave Ribbon with a little Liquid Glue.

On a seperate piece of Whisper White, I stamped the Tags in Bloom sentiment in Granny Apple Green.  Then I added the dotted-frame image, stamped in Daffodil Delight.  I punched the sentiment with the Label Me Lovely Punch – and popped it over the ribbon with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

A few Rhinestone Basic Jewels finished off the card front.

On the inside, I added a second sentiment from Tags in Bloom in Granny Apple Green to a Whsiper White panel.  Across the bottom I added the flowers in Tuxedo Black and colored them with my Stampin’ Blends.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Daffodil Delight 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 flowers on the front…

…and a piece of Granny Apple Green paper from the Brights 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  How gorgeous is this image from the Tags in Bloom set??  It is SO pretty in spring yellow and green, don’t you think?  I hope you like!

And – uhm…you’ll be able to get it for free on 3 March and thru the end of Sale-A-Bration on 31 March! Or….get it right now!  Join my team – with no obligation, no requirements, no commitment – and you can get these goodies right away and start using them.  Give me a holler with questions – or get started right here….and let’s get you going! 🙂

For all orders of $50 or greater (before shipping and taxes) that has my current host code applied or for individual orders of $150 or greater placed through me between now and midnight MT on Friday, 14 Feb, you’ll get your choice of a free adhesive!

This can be anything that Stampin’ Up! sells that could be used as an adhesive! And for the adhesives that are $5 or under, two packs will equal one choice (see the items with the (2) on the list below) so if you select those, you’ll get double…and who doesn’t like DOUBLE?!!

The adhesive will be in addition to the normal thank you gift that I order for you!! Plus, since your order will be over $50, you’ll earn Sale-A-Bration item(s) too. A big double whoo-hoo for more free goodies!!

***Please note, if your order is over $150, do not apply a host code. If you apply a host code to your order, it’ll take away your host benefits and we don’t want that! But don’t worry, you’ll still be eligible for the free gift and free adhesive offer!

Here’s a list of the adhesives you can choose from:

  • Stampin’ Dimensionals (2)
  • Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals (2)

It was a dark and stormy day….

Okay – it was raining.  Not stormy.  Really just sort of dreary.

It was a dark and dreary morning….

…and warm enough that I’d directed the staff to open every door and window to air out the musty wolf smell of my lair.

With that done, after eating my specially prepared breakfast….

Okay – it’s dry dog food out of a bag.  Not like…venison benedict or something.

With that done, after eating my dry dog food out of a bag like a “regular” dog….

I took up my post.

I scanned for anything out of the ordinary.

Anything…odd.  Or…new.  Or…just….you know.

Soon, though, the patter of rain and the lack of anything “you know” began to take a toll…

The struggle is real, people.  It’s the ugly truth that no one wants to hear or know!

Sleep.   Happens.

Why do the staff always have a pea-pickin’ camera to catch me in the act of taking a short little teensy power nap?!?

The staff is on their own.
