Stampin’ UP! Blooms In Windows 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 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!

Stampin’ UP! Come Sail Away Sneak Peek!

Good morning!  Have you been scouring the Retiring List?  Making sure you’ve grabbed up your favorites?  Are you one of those folks who does NOT own Lovely as a Tree – and figured it would “be available forever and ever and no need to buy it now!”??  Well…uhm…yea.  That’s not happening!  So…don’t assume your faves will always be here – get them NOW!  Just sayin’!

As the old and wonderful get ready to take their swan song, the NEW and wonderful are waiting in the wings to WOW you!  One of those is the new Come Sail Away Suite that I demo’d this past weekend.  I thought I’d show one of those samples to you today – in a little more detail – so that you can get a really good look at the Sailing Home stamp set and Smooth Sailing Dies – all available to customers on 4 Jun!  Take a look-see:

This one is easier to make than you might think – so…here we go! 🙂

I started with a piece of Night of Navy card stock and the Seaside TIEF (which is on the Retiring List, folks – so….be sure you get it before you can’t!).  With my Craft Whisper White Ink Pad, I swiped across the DEBOSSING side of the TIEF – so the indented side.  I made sure I had good coverage then carefully placed the Night of Navy panel in the folder and ran it thru the Big Shot.  When it came out – boom!!  Instant “water” – which I enhanced even more by brushing Clear Wink of Stella over the raised “waves”.

I matted the panel on Sahara Sand to create the card front.

Next up, using the grasses die in the new Smooth Sailing Dies – available on 4 June! – I cut one from Old Olive and two from Mossy Meadow.  These I adhered to the card front with Liquid Glue – only at the bottom of the die cuts, letting the tops sort of “float”.  See what I did there? 😉

I did the same with a grass die cut from Vellum card stock – did you hear me mention on the demonstration that there is COLORED Vellum in the new 20190-2020 Annual Catalog?  Yep – it’s in the Perennial Essence Vellum pack 12″ x 12″ sheets in Old Olive, Petal Pink and So Safffron!  Whoo-hooo!

The anchor, from the Sailing Home stamp set, is stamped in Sahara on Whisper White and cut with the matching die from the Smooth Sailing Die set.  I used a length of the new Night of Navy & Sahara Sand Baker’s Twine (part of the Suite and coming on 4 June), looped it thru the top of the die cut anchor, tied a knot and then adhered the anchor on with Liquid Glue.

I stamped the Sailing Home sentiment in Mossy Meadow on Whisper White, cut it out with the label die in Smooth Sailing, and popped it over all the sea grass and anchor with Dimensionals.

Some Pearl Basic Jewels scattered here and there finished off the card front!

On the inside, on a piece of Whisper White, I stamped the anchor in Sahara Sand.  Then, I used my Sponge Daubers and the card stock “stencils” created when I cut the grasses for the card front! – to sponge some grass on and around the anchor in Old Olive and Mossy Meadow.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Sahara Sand mat and into my Night of Navy card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

I repeated the Sailing Home/Smooth Sailing stamping and stencil sponging on the front of my Whisper White Medium Envelope…

…and then I stamped the anchor onto the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  How excited are you about this Come Sail Away Suite?!?  This product suite has so many good elements in it – and it’s going to be an awesome tool for all your crafting needs – especially for creating those frequently-problematic masculine cards.  I hope you like – and have now written this suite down as one of your first purchases when the new catty comes out in June!  Unless you want it RIGHT NOW.  I can help you with that!  Give me a shout! 🙂

Stampin’ UP! 2019 Retiring List Clarification!!

The retiring list has been a bit confusing.  Yikes!

It looks like every single stamp set from the 2018-19 Annual Catalog is being retired and that isn’t the case, the carryover sets are being transitioned to Cling Mount.

The stamp sets offered in clear-mount or wood-mount in the 2018–2019 annual catalog that are carrying over into the 2019–2020 annual catalog will 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.

Here is the list of stamp sets that WILL be in the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.  The stamp sets on this list will not be retiring, they will simply be transitioned to Cling Mount moving forward:

  • Accented Blooms
  • Animal Outing
  • Artisan Textures
  • Barn Door
  • Beautiful Day
  • Beautiful You
  • Bee Thankful
  • Birthday Backgrounds
  • Bokeh Dots
  • Botanical Bliss

Stampin’ UP! 2019-2020 Annual Catalog Sneak Peeks from OnStage!

Good morning!  I have to say – it’s hard to believe (and a little sad!) that OnStage is already over. 😳  Seemed like we were so busy getting READY and then bing-bada-BOOM….it was over!  One second I was driving to the airport in Baltimore and then…all of a sudden….I’m back in my room in Baltimore typing this post.  And now I’m headed back to work.

Whaaaa????

Oh well – time flies…and we’ve got a cruise and the November OnStage to look forward to….

Oh…AND – the release of the new 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.  Which will be on 4 June!  I’ll be ordering packs of catalogs on/about 2 May and sending them to my current customers shortly thereafter!  You want to be sure you’re on my list, okay – so…I think you know what you need to do!  If you’ve ordered from me in the past year – you’re there!  If not – and you don’t have a demonstrator – go ahead and get at least a $50 order placed with me soon (here’s a link to my Online Store) and YOU’LL be on my list, too! 😉

Speaking of catalogs – the new one is amazing.  Last summer on the Alaskan cruise, I was surprised to be asked to give my opinion on some new layouts for this one.  And with all the input, SU! really built a perfect catalog!  Let’s get some peeks at what’s IN it, shall we?

At the start we get to see the Color collections – including the new 2019-2021 In Colors (from left to right in this picture – Rococco Rose, Purple Posy, Pretty Peacock, Seaside Spray and Terracotta Tile).  Do you see YOUR new favorite?!?

Did you see the In Color DSP?  If you loved Gingham Gala – you’re going to LOVE the new patterns in that and the color family 6″ x 6″ DSP packs!

You’re welcome! 😉

Next is a Bundle Index!!

Oh.  Yes.  They.  Did!!  NOW – you can find all the bundles in the catalog – with a picture of the stamp and die set, a sample that uses them and the page you can find it.  And – on THAT page is yet MORE samples for your creative inspiration!  There’s 7 1/2 PAGES of bundles – which mean a LOT of savings for you!

Then we get into the Suites.  What follows are pictures we took of those suites.  I’ll be putting a lot more pictures on my Stamps-N-Lingers Facebook page, so be sure to Like/Follow that if you haven’t already! 🙂

Ready?  Go!

Woven Threads….

  

Noble Peacock…that’s COLORED FOIL – in Blueberry Bushel, Old Olive and Pretty Peacock!  WOW! 😳

Magnolia Lane…and there’s a Memories & More Card Pack with this one – check those Cards & Envelopes, too!

Garden Lane….really works beautifully with the Magnolia Lane goodies!

Follow Your Art…

Pressed Petals….

Bird Ballad…

Dinoraur…nope – NOT mis-spelled! 😉

Perennial Essence…THIS one brings us…COLORED VELLUM!  🎉🎉🎉 In Old Olive, Petal Pink and So Saffron!

Mosaic Mood…

See a Silhouette…

Come Sail Away…which is the suite I demonstrated at OnStage.  If you WANT to see the video – click the first picture.  Fair warning- it’s 13 min and change.  You KNOW I’m a chatty Mary…. 🙂

I’m still busy looking at all the new goodies – and making note of some favorites that are leaving us (Lovely As a Tree.  Wood Textures.  Pretty Pines Thinlits.).  But – there are SO MANY WONDERFUL new goodies – I promise promise promise you’ll only be sad for a second!  In with the new!!

DO check out my Facebook page – there’ll be more pics today! 🙂 And, my pre-order should be here – yes, at the hotel! – on Wednesday.  So – perhaps we’ll have a chance to look at the new goodies together, hmmm? 😉

Stampin’ UP! Big Plans Happiness Blooms Card Gift Box and…Sneak Peeks!

Hello from Charlotte, y’all!  When you get this, OnStage will be in the books and I’ll be on the way back to the airport and then to Baltimore.  WOW!  What a whirlwind weekend!  And what an AMAZEBALLS new Annual Catalog!  I’m so excited to thumb thru it page-by-page to see all the new goodies and returning faves.

And to share some pics with you!  If you scroll past my project for today, you’ll see some pictures – and then tomorrow you’ll get even more.  AND – I’ll be posting tons of them on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page, too!

In case you’re curious – I made it thru my presentation without passing out (whoo-hoo!) and had a really good time doing it!  So…DOUBLE Whoo-hoo!!

So – last week I promised (threatened??) that I’d be very quickly bringing you a card gift box with a stack of cards made like my Big Plans Kindness card on Thursday.  And – here it is!  I used some Happiness Blooms DSP and Pineapple Punch card stock to make the box – and more Big Plans Memories & More Card Pack elements.  Take a look-see:

Making the box is easy – I have a full (and free!) Tutorial right here – so take a quick look, okay? 🙂

Once I’d made the box….

…I decorated it with a Pineapple Punch-matted Big Plans Memories & More Card Pack panel, popped on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I also added a floral sticker – from the Card Pack – and a little bow tied with two lengths of Whisper White Baker’s Twine and one of Grapefruit Grove Nature’s Twine.

Then I made a few more cards in the same manner as my Thursday card last week…

Each of the cards uses a Basic Gray card base and either Pineapple Punch or Calypso Coral mats.  And each is decorated on the inside…

…and, of course!, on the envelopes (#nonekkidenvelopes!)…

These cards are so quick and easy to make – and the possible sentiment combinations…HUGE!  And you could do the card front and gift your recipient with the sheet of sentiment sticker so they could personalize the cards as they need them!

I DO hope you’re busily picking up the Big Plans Memories & More Card Pack…..

See you tomorrow with more pictures of OnStage and the new catalog!

Stampin’ UP! Nature’s Golden Afternoon and some Sneak Peeks From OnStage 2019!

Good morning!  It’s Me.  From OnStage in Charlotte!  In just a few hours, I will be getting hooked up to a microphone and stepping out to introduce a roomful of fellow demonstrators to a brand spanking new Product Line from the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.

I am excited and also terrified to my toes.

I hope I can remember the names of the stamp set – and dies – and DSP…

Have I mentioned….gulp!!!

So – let’s do something I know for certain sure I CAN do – share a fun card with my peeps! 🙂

This one goes back to the outgoing 2018-2019 Annual Catalog for some Nature’s Poem DSP (which will disappear at the end of May!) and it’s paired up with the so pretty Golden Afternoon stamp set in the 2019 Occasions Catalog!  Take a look-see:

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

I started with the pretty Nature’s Poem DSP in the woodgrain design and matted it on Grapefruit Grove for the card front.  Then I took another piece – the Tranquil Tide design – and cut it into three equal sized pieces.   I also matted that on Grapefruit Grove – then adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I cut a scalloped circle from Grapefruit Grove card stock using a Circles Layering Framelits die.  Over that I adhered a Colored Doily (White side up!) with Liquid Glue.

The sentiment circle comes courtesy of the Golden Afternoon stamp set.  I first inked the pretty tree image in Soft Suede and stamped it off once, then stamped it on Whisper White.  I used the Stamparatus – I think that sorta ought to go without saying anymore, huh?? 🙂  Over that, in Tranquil Tide, I added the sentiment.  Since I was using the Stamparatus, I was able to stamp it a couple of times to get a good dark image.

I cut that out with a Stitched Shapes Framelits circle die (these are – whaaaa! – sold out and not going to be replaced.  So…if you don’t have this set, you can cut the sentiment out with a Circles Layering Framelits die.  Add some “faux stitches” with a Journaling Pen if you like! 🙂 ).  I adhered the sentiment onto the doily with Liquid Glue.

Using the wonderful Frosted Bouquet Framelits, I cut several Whisper White branches and adhered them to the card front with Liquid Glue.  Then I popped the matted sentiment over top with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a Grapefruit Grove Share What You Love Artisan Pearl and a Grapefruit Grove Nature’s Twine bow and the card front was done!

For the inside, I used my Stamparatus and stamped the Golden Afternoon tree in stamped-off-TWICE Soft Suede on a Whisper White mat, then added a second sentiment in Tranquil Tide.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Grapefruit Grove mat and into my Tranquil Tide card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got a Golden Afternoon tree in full strength Soft Suede on the front…

…and more of the Nature’s Poem DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Grab this Golden Afternoon stamp set, y’all!  And some Nature’s Poem DSP – the retiring list will come out in a couple of days and this DSP is sure to be on it – and you don’t want to miss it!  I hope you like!

Speaking of retiring – the 2017-2019 In Colors (like…Lemon Lime Twist and the Tranquil Tide I used in this card!) will also leave us soon!  If you don’t have card stock and ink refills in your faves – get them soon!  Those’ll go like hotcakes when the Retiring List is officially released.  Scroll on down to see all the other 2017-2019 In Color goodies that you need to get stocked up on SOON!

News from CenterStage and the New 2019-2020 Annual Catalog!

Take a look-see at the cover of the new catalog!

I FINALLY made it to Charlotte last evening after a long day (including a weather divert to Raleigh-Durham!) and barely made it in time for dinner at CenterStage!   But – I DID get there, and was able to pick up a few gifts from the new catalog…

…and pose with Sue and Amy to commemorate the evening!

Watch here and on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page for more Sneak Peeks throughout the next couple of days!


The Retiring List Will Be Released Next Week!

Hard as it is to believe, the 2018 – 2019 Annual Catalog is reaching retirement age!  That’s right….ALREADY!  On 15 April at 1pm Mountain Time, we’ll get a look at the list of favorites from that and the 2019 Occasions Catalog!  While we don’t know everything that will be on the list…we DO know that the 2018-2019 In Colors WILL be leaving us for certain sure!

Past experience tells us that once this list becomes “official” – some things…like ink pads, refills and card stock! – go off the shelves super fast!  So this would be a great time to stock up on your favorite colors!!
