Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Painted Poppies 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 a sketch 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!

You know, when I got back from OnStage, I promised myself I wasn’t going to go hog-wild on bringing you sneak peeks.  But…I can’t help it very much.  I’ve been itching to play with the set I’m sharing today – the Peaceful Poppies suite – since I saw it last Friday night!  This suite has two bundles that anchor it – the Painted Poppies Bundle with an all-images stamp set and the bundled Painted Labels dies and the Peaceful Moments Bundle with an all-sentiment stamp set and the bundled Poppy Moments Dies – all coming on 3 Jan 20!  I used both bundles and paired them with the gorgeous and spectacular Peaceful Poppies DSP.  Take a look-see:

And here’s our sketch!

I started with some of the wunnermus Peaceful Poppies DSP and matted it on Basic Black for the card front.  I added a smaller panel at the bottom with Liquid Glue.  Across the seam I added a black decorative piece from the Peaceful Poppies Elements. And – above the seam, I also added one of the round elements from the set.

Let me tell you something, you guys – the Poppy Moments Dies are a collage-makers DREAM!!  Check out the leaves!  And the flowers!

I cut the large and small detailed flower in Calypso Coral – as well as the solid flowers that match them.  Using Liquid Glue, I adhered the detailed flowers to the solid flowers.  I used the detailed dies again to cut paper from the same Peaceful Poppies DSP that I’d used on the card front. I adhered the die cut pieces inside the card stock flowers (paper piecing).  Look at the shading that created!  I also cut some flower centers in Basic Black and added them with Liquid Glue.

I cut leaves – each leaf is composed of two-pieces – from Mossy Meadow and Old Olive – then I adhered them together with Liquid Glue.

Inside the Peaceful Poppies Elements, you’ll find some white-printed vellum leaves and flowers.  I used two of those leaves and colored the back with my Dark Mossy Meadow and Dark Old Olive Stampin’ Blends.

The last piece of the puzzle is the sentiment.  I stamped the Peaceful Moments sentiment in Poppy Parade on Whisper White and cut it with the smallest Rectangle Stitched Die.

Then – I took a few minutes to play with all the pieces – including a length of Basic Black baker’s twine from the new Country Club Twine Combo Pack (available 3 Jan 20).  Once I got a collage that I liked – I snapped some pictures with my phone camera – in various stages so that it would be easy for me to re-create it.

And – I adhered the pieces back onto the card front with Liquid Glue.  When I got to the sentiment and the small flower – I used Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I finished off with some Peaceful Poppies Sequins (also available on 3 Jan) here and there with Liquid Glue – and the card front was done.

On the inside, I added another Peaceful Moments sentiment in Poppy Parade (would you look at that gorgeous font!?!) to a Whisper White panel.  Around it, I stamped some Painted Poppies in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  Over each flower – I added the solid image in stamped-off-once or twice Poppy Parade.

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Painted Poppies on the front…

…and more of that spectacular Peaceful Poppies DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Oh.  My.  Goodness.  Yes – this is my current MOST FAVORITE SUITE in the new 2020 Jan – Jun Mini Catalog (the catalog-formerly-known-as-Occasions)!!  Painted Poppies and the bundled Painted Labels Dies and the coordinating Peaceful Moments stamp set and bundled Poppy Moments Dies.  All held together by the Peaceful Poppies DSP.  I hope you like!  And you need to add this to your MUST HAVE list right this very second!

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 Jaimie’s page. And you can just click on the names below to go direct to all the blogs!

Stampin’ Up! Forever Blossoms Sneak Peek and a FLASH Ordering Special!

Good morning and Happy Hawwmp Online Extravaganza Day!  That’s right – Online Extravaganza is underway with some great deals.  AND – my Double Peppermints Ordering Special is also going on.  PLUS – if you read on, you’ll see a fun FLASH ORDERING SPECIAL from me that might let you score some brand spanking new 2020 January-June Mini Catalog and Sale-A-Bration Flyer goodies!  Whoo-hoo!!

I promised in my video yesterday a sneak peek of the new and wonderful Forever Blossoms stamp set and bundled Cherry Blossom Dies.  So – that’s what I’ve got – plus a few other elements that you’ll find in the new Parisian Blossoms Suite.  Take a look-see:

This is sorta-CASE of the Make-And-Take card that we did on Saturday at Onstage.

A lot of similar elements but I shooshed it up a bit!

I started with a Petal Pink card base and built the card front right on it.  First of all, I embossed a Petal Pink panel in the new Parisian Flourish 3D Embossing Folder (available on 3 Jan 20) and then I adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.  This is a great way to get an embossed “card base front” without stretching the base out of whack!

The next layer is a Basic Black-matted piece of the new Parisian Blossom Specialty DSP (also coming on 3 Jan 20), adhered with Liquid Glue on a bit of an angle.

When I first saw the make-and-take picture, I thought the flowers were embossed on Vellum card stock.  They weren’t – but…mine are!  I cut the Vellum card stock panel and inked up the large-and-lovely flower image in the Forever Blossoms stamp set (avail 3 Jan 20) in Versamark Ink and stamped it twice on the panel.  Then I sprinkled White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed it.

I colored the flowers with my Petal Pink Stampin’ Write Marker and the leaves with my Mossy Meadow Marker.  Once it was dry, I used Glue Dots under the embossed areas (and up in the corner where I planned to add a Rhinestone) to adhere it to a same-size piece of the Parisian Blossoms Specialty DSP.  Then I matted it on Basic Black and popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I used some Glue Dots to adhere a length of Petal Pink 1/4″ Metallic-Edge Ribbon across the panel (coming on 3 Jan 20).

For the sentiment, I stamped the Forever Blossoms sentiment in Basic Gray ink on Whisper White and cut it out with the Timeless Label Punch.  I popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut three Mossy Meadow leaves with the cutting-and-embossing leaves dies in the bundled Cherry Blossoms die.  Then I stamped a small Forever Blossoms flower in Smoky Slate on Whisper White and colored it with my Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Combo.  I cut it out with the matching Cherry Blossoms Die.

I adhered the leaves to the back of the flower with Liquid Glue then used a Mini Stampin’ Dimensional and Liquid Glue to adhere the flower to the sentiment. I added some new Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels (part of the suite and available on 3 Jan 20) and the card front was done.

On the inside, I added a second Forever Blossoms sentiment in Basic Gray on a Whisper White panel.  Across the bottom, I stamped the large flower twice in Smoky Slate and colored just the flowers with my Light Petal Pink Stampin’ Blend.  I added a Champagne Rhinestone (I LOVE these!!).

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Basic Black mat and into my card base – and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Smoky Slate Forever Blossoms flowers on the front…

…and more of the gorgeous Parisian Blossoms Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I have a terrible suspicion that with every sneak peek of the new catalog that I bring I’ll be saying “This is my favorite new set in the catalog”. 🙁  I’m sure glad I have my discount, cuz…I have a TON of faves.  And THIS Parisian Blossom Suite with its Forever Blossoms Bundle and Parisian Beauty Bundle, plus the spectacular Parisian Blossom Specialty DSP…is right up at the TOP of that favorites list!  I hope you like – AND are adding it to your Must-Have list!

Also – hint…read about my Flash Sale.  YOU might be able to get this Forever Blossoms Bundle WAY quicker than you thought! 😉

Finn Fan Fix


We had an Octopus Incident the other day.

In which, in the blink of an eye, Mr. Octopus became Mr. Heptapus.

That’s right – we tranformed him from an Octa to a Hepta.

And by “we” I mean…yep.  The Man.

So…it was off to the surgery center (fortunately I found the incident digit and was able to put it on ice).

Loving all his children equally, Finn watched anxiously (same as with Mr. Reindeer.  It’s kind of a repeating event, it seems).

Octopus legs are a little trickier to repair than reindeer guts.

Finn became concerned at how long the surgery was taking and attempted to hurry Dr. Wayne…

Hurry!!

Surgery done!  We’re outta here!  He tried to pluck Mr. Octopus right off the surgery table!

Okay – let’s get to the house, people!  I got some more destuctin’ to do!

Stampin’ Up! Come to Gathered Leaves and Daisies

Hey y’all!  Hope the week is going well!

A little housekeeping….Online Extravaganza starts TO-morrow!  And only lasts for three days – so get ready to save!  And – I’ve got a Double Peppermint Rewards Ordering Special going on right now thru the 25th!  Whoo-hoo!

So – do y’all realize that Thanksgiving is just a smidge over a week away? Which means time to get busy with last minute Thanksgiving cards!  So…I did!

Last Friday, at Brian King’s Fall Stamp Along, I did a presentation on building collage cards.  For the card I demo’d but didn’t finish during the presentation, I used the Gather Together stamp set and bundled Gathered Leaves dies.  Plus (you KNEW there was a “plus”, right?!?) – some Beautiful Boughs, Frosted Bouquet and…Daisy Lane!  I finished it up and… take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from the wide-open sketch at CAS(E) This Sketch.

And it fits well with the TGIF Theme challenge.

I started with some wood-grain paper from the Come to Gather DSP that I matted on Merry Merlot for the card front.  I matted another strip of the DSP on Merry Merlot and added it across the bottom of the panel.

Using the Gathered Leaves dies, I cut several from Crushed Curry and Merry Merlot.  I also made a few that are inked – I pressed the dies into the Merry Merlot ink pad, then used the inky dies to cut and emboss on Crushed Curry.

Now for some “Plus”!  I cut a couple of Beautiful Boughs die cuts from Vellum card stock and colored the back with my Dark and Light Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blends.  I also cut a few Frosted Bouquet Dies berries from Gold Glimmer paper.

I created a “mum” (-ish) with the Daisy Lane set.  I stamped the smaller flower image three times in Early Espresso on Crushed Curry.  Then I blended the ink slightly with a Blender Pen and punched them all out with the bundled Medium Daisy Punch.  I stacked them all up with Liquid Glue.

I started my collage by stamping the wheat image from Gather Together in Crushed Curry on the card front.  Then I used Liquid Glue to adhere the Beautiful Boughs, and the Gold Glimmer Frosted Bouquet berries.

The Gathered Leaves are adhered around with more Liquid Glue.  Then I pulled three strands from a piece of 5/8″ Burlap Ribbon and folded them into a loose “figure 8” – which I adhered in the middle of the leaves with Liquid Glue.

I made the sentiment my stamping the large leaf in Pumpkin Pie on Pumpkin Pie cardstock.  Then I stamped the sentiment over top in Merry Merlot and cut it with the matching die in Gathered Leaves.  I added the sentiment over top the looped burlap strands with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Finally – I added my “mum” with a Dimensional.  A Gold Faceted Gem and some Pumpkin Pie gems from the Holiday Rhinestones Basic Jewels finished it off!

On the inside, I added a second sentiment from Come To Gather in Merry Merlot on a Very Vanilla panel.  Over top I added the large leaf in stamped-off-once Pumpkin Pie.  I created a sticky note mask (stamping it on a sticky note and fussy cutting it).  I set the mask over the leaf and added the wheat image in stamped-off-once Crushed Curry.

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

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got the large leaf and wheat images in full strength Pumpkin Pie and Crushed Curry on the front…

…and a little more of the Come To Gather DSP on the envelope flap!

Et Voila!  This card showcases one of my favorite bundles – the Gather Together stamp set and Gathered Leaves Dies.  Plus, of course, the awesome Beautiful Boughs, Frosted Bouquet and the Daisy Lane bundle!  Wow – a LOT of wunnermus-ness all collage’d up on this one card!  I hope you like!

Dog is blowing his coat.

Again.

Still? 🙂

No clue.  But…

…he’s being a little judge-y about me not brushing him enough!

I guess I can’t blame him…

…yes.  That IS a lot of your hair on the ground!

But…looking dapper now!

Quick.  Take my picture.  I’m gorgeous! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Let it Snow on Playful Penguins

Wow – what a weekend!  We had SUCH a good time at OnStage – I got to meet some of my team members for the very first time (I HOPE not the last!) and we had a wonderful day – followed by pizza and catalog looking and world-problem-solving in my room on Saturday night!

Speaking of catalogs – I can’t wait for you guys to get the new 2020 Occasions and Sale-A-Bration catty’s in your hot little hands!

Which…I’ll be able to start sending out to y’all around the 7th of December!  So…for my customers (you’ve ordered in the past year) and my Online Host Club members – you’re already on my mailing list! If that doesn’t describe you – and you don’t already have a demonstrator….be sure to get an order in soon thru my Online Store so that your ARE on my list!  And – that’ll also get you a “membership” in my Punkin’ Heads Rewards program!  Check THAT out right here!

But – for now, let’s not lose track of the awesome and wonderful goodies in the 2019 Holiday Catalog!  I used some of that wunnermus-ness today – the Playful Penguins stamp set and a little Let it Snow Specialty DSP.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from this week’s CAS Colours & Sketches sketch challenge.

I started with a piece of Whisper White that I embossed in the Winter Knit 3D Embossing Folder and matted on Garden Green for the card front.

For the middle panel, I used a large Stitched Nested Label to cut a piece of Let It Snow Specialty DSP, that I adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I used my Stamparatus to stamp the two Playful Penguins in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on some Whisper White.  Then I fussy cut them and popped them onto the DSP panel with Liquid Glue.

I stamped the bow tie in Garden Green and fussy cut it to adhere to the lefthand penguin with Liquid Glue.

For the second penguin, I stamped the cap and scarf in Flirty Flamingo, fussy cut them and adhered them with Liquid Glue.

The sentiment, from Playful Penguins, is stamped on Whisper White in Garden Green and cut with a Stitched Rectangle Die.

I adhered the sentiment with Liquid Glue – added some Rhinestone Basic Jewels and the card front was done! 🙂

On the inside, I added a second Playful Penguins sentiment in Garden Green on a Whisper White panel.  At the bottom, I used Liquid Glue to adhere a Garden Green-matted strip of Let It Snow Specialty DSP.  A single Rhinestone by the sentiment finished if off.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Garden Green mat and into my Flirty Flamingo card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got a Tuxedo Black Playful Penguin peeking up from the corner…

…and a little more Let It Snow Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  These Playful Penguins, cavorting on Let It Snow Specialty DSP, just say winter wonder, don’t you think?  Not Christmas – just…winter and friendship!  I hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix


I got home on Sunday morning to my Finn boing-ing at the door.  Wiggler just a wiggling!  He NEEDs to be a SU demonstrator so he can GO to events.  I’m pretty sure he’d have a wonderful time! 🙂

We decided we needed to do a quick golf cart tour of the pasture to check the grass level for the girls – so off we went!

Me, Dad and the kid.

Farm work is never ending, but he’s up for the job!

Apparently it was just warm enough for him to deploy the cooling device… 😉

The girls were juuuusst curious enough to stop eating (yes – there is PLENTY of grass yet!) and casually check us out.

But not close enough to risk getting caught.  I mean – what if they wanted to RIDE us?!  Get ready to call the Pony-Police to report the abuse! LOL

And yes – those are the “Lingers” in “Stamps-N-Lingers”!  Short for “Haflingers”!  That’s Cerah on the right – she’s mom and is about 20.  Cady (short for Cadence), her daughter, is on the left and is 16-ish.  🙂

Stampin’ Up! OnStage Pics and 2020 Occasions Sneak Peeks!

Well – OnStage Local 2019 is IN THE BOOKS!  I’ll be on the way home soon – back to the Man.  And The Man.  I’ll leave it to you to decide who is which!

I wanted to share some pics from OnStage and a few Sneak Peeks from the 2020 Occasions Mini and Sale-A-Bration Flyer!  I think you’re going to like them!

We had a big turn out from the “Krews”!

It took TWO tables to fit us – and all our chocolate and goodies!!

We had a great day of stamping and make-and-takes and whoo-ing and Prize Patrols…and then we adjourned to the hotel for the traditional post-OnStage Pizza Party and catalog perusing.  But first – we took a picture with some friendly Meercats.  Which…you MIGHT see some more of soon! 😉

We got the new 2020 Occasions Catalog and the Sale-A-Bration flyer pretty early in the day!  You’ll notice an orientation difference with this catalog – it’s the same size but…it’s in “landscape” mode.  Which means bigger layouts and pictures!  Kinda cool!

I took a ton of pictures – 111, in fact! – of the Display Boards.

I’ll share some of them here for you – and I’ll be posting a bunch more of them on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page later today – so…be watching for them!

Here we go!

There are Seven Suites…

A bunch of Bundles…

A couple of cool kits…

And the Botanical Prints Product Medley.  Check out those bees!! 🙂

The Sale-A-Bration First Release looks awesome!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

There you go!  Hope you enjoyed the peek.  Watch for more on my FB page! 🙂
