Splendor (and Butterflies!) in the Grass

The Adventure Bound DSP is wonderful paper.  I’ve gotten some cool cards made using it – but it takes a little thought.  It’s so photo-realistic that it tends to push me towards more literal “scenes” than some of the other paper we have.  Case in point – the card share I have for you today.  You all know I’m in California, which is – sadly – under one of the worst droughts they’ve seen in….well, forever?  So, I think when I put this card together and selected this particular DSP, I was craving some green grass.  Or perhaps that’s my subconscious telling me I’m homesick?  Whatever the cause, I pulled out the verdant green grass DSP.  And, since SU! doesn’t have Haflinger-pony-punkin-head-punches (are you listening, SU!??), I went for butterflies. Take a look-see:

Butterflies in the Grass b-d Outside 1 watermarked

My influence for this card layout came from the Pals Paper Arts design #245.

PPA245

Kind of obviously, I didn’t get 5 shapes across the bottom – but, I came close!  So, I started by punching my Bitty Butterflies with my Bitty Butterfly Punch, making sure to change the angle with each punch, so it would look more natural.  I dithered a bit about whether I wanted to have the Crushed Curry mat show thru the punches, but ultimately decided on a little bit of the wondrous Painted Blooms DSP.  Now, I certainly COULD have just SNAIL’d a strip of that paper behind the punches, but – no!  I wanted actual BLOOMS in the punched areas – and I couldn’t find anywhere on the Painted Blooms DSP that would put flowers in all three butterflies.  So….I carefully punched out 3 Bitty Butterflies from the DSP.  After trying to figure out how to adhere them down first and still get them inside the punched out butterflies…I finally ended up SNAILing the grassy DSP to the Crushed Curry mat and then ever-so-carefully adhering the Painted Blooms guys (with glue dots) inside the punches.  Yes, it was persnickety in the extreme!  But!  Once they were in, and accented with some Pearl Basic Jewels, and outlined with teensy White Gel Pen “stitches”….I was very glad I’d taken the time to do it this way.  The glue dots actually made them a little higher than the surrounding paper, so it gives it just a little texture.  I really love how they turned out!

Butterflies in the Grass B-day Outside 3 watermarked

For the sentiment, I cut out a circle of the grassy DSP with the Circle Collection Framelits and then a Crushed Curry circle mat with my 2 1/2″ punch.  I punched another Bitty Butterfly, and then SNAIL’d the two pieces together.  The sentiment comes from the Sale-a-Bration Big Day set – which I inked in Versamark, sprinkled with Crushed Curry Stampin’ Emboss Powder, and heat embossed.  Then I embellished my butterfly with more pearls and “stitches”!

I wrapped some Crushed Curry Baker’s Twine around the layered card front, adhering it with tape on the backside and used a little piece of tape to pull the center together.  Then the sentiment circle is popped over the BT with some SU Dimensionals.  I attached the whole layered piece to my Mossy Meadow Card Base with more dimensionals and…the front was done!

Butterflies in the Grass B-day Outside 4 watermarked

On the inside, I started with a Crushed Curry liner, and punched 3 more Bitty Butterflies (I was on a roll!).  I almost got silly and let the Mossy Meadow show thru the punched shapes, but I caught myself just in the nick of time.  A little strip of grass is adhered with SNAIL behind the punches and then the whole liner was attached to the card.  I added my stitches – and then decided to leave the pearls off.  What do you think?  Should I add the pearls like is on the front, or….do you like them like this?

Butterflies in the Grass B-day Inside watermarked

So – that did it for the card.  I do really like looking at it – I can almost smell the grass and hear my pony-girls munching it – they’re pretty much munching machines, so this grass wouldn’t last over long!  I’m sticking their picture in here – cause it’s my blog post and I can! 😉  This is them in their stalls munching some hay.  They’re equal-opportunity-munchers!  And the tiniest bit spoiled, maybe….. this picture is from last summer.  They (and their big buddy Bo) spend the hot and buggy summer nights in their suites stalls, with hay and water and fluffy shavings and a fan (carefully positioned so they can stand IN the breeze or OUT of the breeze….).

Girls in the stalls watermarked
Anyway – hope you enjoyed my share today.  And – I hope that you get yourself some of the Adventure Bound DSP from the 2015 Occasions catalog!


BUTTERFLY THINLITS RETURNING SOON!

There’s some cool news from Stampin’ Up! about the Butterfly Thinlit Dies and a special that I think will make a lot of you happy (like those of you who are hoping that the Butterfly Dies and the Irresistibly Yours DSP will stick around).  Read on:

Stampin’ Up! notified us that the Butterflies Thinlits Dies should be back in the warehouse and available for ordering around April 15 (something GOOD on tax day!!). They’d hoped the dies would arrive in time for Sale-A-Bration, and when that didn’t happen, they hoped they’d be here in time for the Free Shipping promotion. Well, sadly, that didn’t happen either.  So….. they decided to do a special offer!

Starting from the day that the Butterflies Thinlits are again available and then continuing through April 30, there will be two special offers:

1.  Get the Butterflies Thinlits at a 15 percent discount–just $21.20! (so if you already have the Butterfly Basics stamp set, you’ll be able to complete the bundle at a great discount!

–OR —

2. Buy any of the Butterflies Thinlits Bundles at the already-discounted price and choose one of three FREE Sale-A-Bration items (only available while supplies last)!

  • Best Year Ever Designer Series Paper (item 138633)
  • Best Year Ever Accessory Pack (item 138634)
  • Irresistibly Yours Specialty Designer Series Paper (item 138635)

So, if you’ve been anxiously awaiting the return of the Butterflies Thinlits….it looks like your ship is rounding the dock into port (that’s actually what’s been holding things up, so….it’s a bit of a pun!).  Keep your eyes peeled for the return of the flutterby’s and grab you some!!


Today’s the last day for this edition of the Weekly Deals.  I’m hemming and hawing over whether to just break down and get the stars and hearts framelits….  I already got the Flower Fair ones, and the buttons and the ribbon and the punch….decisions, decisions!

When you place your orders, don’t forget to use the April Hostess code – unless you hit $150 – then you’ll get your OWN Hostess Code and benefits.

Hope you’re getting off to a good week!

Vintage Butterflies (and a little sumpin-sumpin sweet!)

Hello – and welcome to Thursday!  Today marks the TRUE 90day anniversary of the Stamps-N-Lingers blog!  Yeah!  Because it’s a big day (well, to me at least!) and because I can, I’m offering a little bit o’ blog candy today.  Read on to find out the what’s and how’s, okay?

For today’s share, I slipped back into my comfort zone – I went with a total vintage look!  I also used the SAB Sheer Perfection (there’s some sweet foreshadowing for you….) and the ever-so-cool Butterfly Basics bundle.  Take a look-see:

Vintage Butterfly Happy b-day Outside 2 watermarked

 I started with a piece of Very Vanilla Card Stock that I cut to size and then tore all the edges.  I added a torn corner and stapled it with my Handheld Stapler.  Then, I used a combination of Soft Suede and Crumb Cake inks to sponge the edges and get that great been-there-done-that-got-left-for-a-few-centuries-in-a-box/tomb/catacomb/cave/dungeon/basement look!  Once I achieved my goal, I SNAIL’d it to my Crushed Curry mat (which I’d also “aged” a bit in the same manner – since “crushed” wasn’t quite old enough curry for me).  Then I got to playing!

Vintage Butterfly B-day outside 3 watermarked

I pulled out my Sheer Perfection Vellum and cut out the large butterfly from the Butterfly Basics Bundle.  This is definitely a combination where you really MUST use your waxed paper between the die and your art paper – or you ain’t NEVER gettin’ that thing outta there!  At least not without tearing the vellum – and you don’t want to do that!  Once I had my flutter-by all cut out, I turned him over and colored the back with my Crumb Cake and Soft Suede Stampin’ Write Markers. Then I set him aside and let him dry.

Meanwhile, I used the other stamps in the Butterfly Basics set, and stamped the ferns in Mossy Meadow and Old Olive – I always stamped off once on scrap paper before I stamped the art piece.  And, I stamped the art piece a couple of times without re-inking.  Then I did the same with the honeycomb stamp in Crushed Curry.  And then, because I could – I took my almost dry Sponge Dauber and burnished the remainder of the piece with the brown (remember it was a combo of Crumb Cake and Soft Suede) ink that was still on the dauber.  Just to suitably subdue everything.  The whole thing got SNAIL’d to an Old Olive Cut and Ready Card Base.

To adhere the butterfly to the art piece, I used a BUNCH of little pieces of SU Dimensionals.  I wanted him to pop – but I needed him to be well supported, too.  So – this was a bit of a persnickety task.  But necessary – and worth the effort! With him stuck down, I added some Pearl Basic Jewels and called him ready. 

Vintage Butterfly Happy b-day outside 1 watermarked

The sentiment I pulled from the From the Herd set – and I double stamped it in Soft Suede.  I used my SU marker to ink up one piece of the sentiment at a time, and then stamped it on a Very Vanilla CS tag I cut out with my Chalk Talk Framelits.  Then I gave it a few stamps with the Crushed Curry honeycomb and a Soft Suede postage stamp (both from the Butterfly Basics) and aged it up.  Then I popped it onto the front – overlapping the butterfly – with more Dimensionals. The final touch for the front was another barely-there stamped postage mark in Soft Suede, accented with a Crushed Curry button from the Best Year Ever Accessory Pack and a double Linen Thread bow, that I glued on with a tiny dab of Multi-purpose Liquid Glue.  And the front was….done!

On the inside – I started with some Very Vanilla CS, and stamped it with more of the Crushed Curry Honeycombs  and a few Old Olive ferns and some of the butterflies from the SAB Nature’s Perfection set.  And I lightly aged it as well.  The sentiment is in Old Olive and comes from the SAB Simply Wonderful stamp set.

And that completed the card!  I really love this kind of vintage-grungey card myself and I hope that you do, too!

Today leaves just one more day for the Stampin’ Up! Free Shipping sale.  Don’t miss out – get yerself over to my online store and get all stocked up.  And let SU! pay the Post Office! 🙂

Double the Flutter-by Basics!

Today is my 25th Wedding Anniversary!  Wow – hard to believe I’m old enough to have been married 25 years – and I did NOT get married when I was 15! 😉

Today ALSO marks almost exactly 3 months since I started blogging about Stampin’ Up!- so, it’s kind of a double Anniversary for me!  On my very first blog post on 9 Jan 15, I showed you how to make a triple-matted card.  It used one of my favorite Stampin’ Up! sets – the Ornamental Pine.  For today, I want to show you a similar technique (look here to see several pictures that will show you the stacking technique), this time only using two layers (so, it’s a little quicker to do) and using one of the awesome 2015 Occasions stamp bundles – Butterfly Basics.  But, this technique is universal and could be used with all kinds of image combinations and sentiments.  Take a look-see:

Double Mat Kindness Outside 3 WatermarkedStart out by cutting your neutral mat – which will match your card base.  In this case, I used Perfect Plum.  Then, cut the “art” pieces.  I used one of the soft blue pieces in the Painted Blooms DSP (we get so caught up in the wildly beautiful flower images in this DSP that I think we sometimes lose sight of the very versatile, softer neutral sides – be sure to look on BOTH sides! VBG).  With everything cut, layer the art pieces together with a tiny piece of tape – either double sided or regular rolled in a little tube (you just want it to not be a permanent bond!). In this case, there will only be two pieces of paper stuck together.

Double Mat Kindness Outside 2 Watermarked

I started by stamping the sentiment from the SAB Lotus Blossom set in Blackberry Bliss in the bottom right corner of the smaller of the two pieces (what will become the “top” of the stack). Then, I stamped the flower image – one of the prettiest we have, I think! – in Soft Suede.  I colored the images – and yes, I used my Blendies, because I built this card before they became unavailable.  If you already have them – I used Rich Razzleberry and Wild Wasabi.  If you don’t have Blendies, I’d look at the Stampin’ Write Markers in Blackberry Bliss and Pear Pizzazz.  Perhaps accent the flower with Rich Razzleberry and the leaves with some Mossy Meadow.  Be creative!  Then, in Crushed Curry, I stamped all over with the honeycomb stamps – ensuring that several of the stamps went off the paper.  I also stamped the small butterfly in Blackberry Bliss kind of randomly around the image  and the sentiment. Again, be sure to let some of them go off the edges AND cross over to the bottom paper! And that completed the art piece!

Double Mat Kindness Standing Watermarked

The three pieces are SNAIL’d together (just be sure to keep the art pieces in the same orientation as when you stamped them) and then wrapped twice with a piece of the Painted Blooms Thick Twine (again from the Occasions catalog) that was finished with a little bow.  I’m getting so used to making bows – at least with twine (LOL) – that I almost make excuses to use one these days.  (Okay – maybe not all THAT far – but I’m sure not worried about making one anymore!)  The whole front was then popped onto the card front with Dimensionals.  A punched butterfly (Butterfly Basics stamp in Blackberry Bliss, punched with the Bitty Butterfly Punch), embellished with some Pearl Basic Jewels, is adhered to one of the stamped flutter-by’s with a glue dot.  One final pearl, right in the center of the flower – and the front was done!

Double Mat Kindness Outside Closeup Watermarked

I used more of the Painted Blooms DSP on the inside, stamping the edge with a few Crushed Curry Honeycombs and a little flock of butterflies (did you know that a group of butterflies can be called a swarm, rabble, kaleidoscope, or flutter?!? LOVE the idea of a flutter-of-butterflies!)  These, as well as the sentiment that I pulled from the Painted Petals stamp set, were done in Blackberry Bliss.

Double Mat Kindness Inside 2 Watermarked

I love these layered mat card – double or triple, doesn’t matter.  They look complicated and “special” and yet we know they’re not hard to do at all!  I think this would make a lovely set of Thank You notes to give to someone as a gift.  Hope you like this card share – and give double/triple matting a try real soon!

Today starts the Most-Excellent FREE SHIPPING WEEK from Stampin’ Up!  What an awesome time to get all those things on your wish list (check out the Weekly Deals!).  I’m pretty sure I’ll be stocking up (hope DH isn’t reading this!).

Extra, Extra…..Read All About It – FREE Shipping from Stampin’ Up!

There’s a couple of bits of news from Stampin’ Up! that I wanted to share with y’all today (hence the “Extra” edition!). But, before I do that….yesterday, I got home (yes, at some point the hotel becomes “home”!) at the end of an 11 hour day that was at the end of a week of 11 hour days, with an 11 hour day looming before me on Saturday. And, I was tired (who are we foolin’ – I’m STILL tired!). Tired to the bone. Not so much sleepy as simply weary to the depths of my soul (never say I can’t be a Drama Queen!). And, the hard work of this trip is just getting started. Yes, folks – I was teetering on the hairy edge of a serious pity party! And then….I saw this on the table:

Housekeeping thank you 2 Apr 15 watermarked

This note – while it couldn’t make me less tired – DID pull me back from my PP (that’s Pity Party) and make me smile. Maybe you remember that a few weeks back I showed you some pics of the little “thank you” tags that I’ve been making to go with my daily Housekeeping tip.

Housekeeping Batch 4 2 Watermarked Housekeeping Second batch 1 watermarked CA Housekeeping Thanks watermarked

Not hard to make. Don’t take a lot of time. But, it’s pretty obvious from the note (and, this is the nicest one I’ve had, but far FAR from the first/only one – I get a lot of them) that it means something to them. And, isn’t that really the point of taking the time and making the effort to create something with our hands and our hearts? To make someone smile? Make them feel important? Such a little thing that is really….huge! It made me stop and think. I love making cards. It’s fun. I like buying fun tools/toys to make cards WITH. But – even more – I like thinking that I’m doing something that makes people happy. Maybe even in the midst of a soul-wearying week.

Just sayin’.

Now, onto something much less deep – and really awesome!

Well, Shut the Barn Door – Congratulations, My Friend!!

Last week, in the midst of remembering a bad time in her life, my bestest friend got some really GREAT news.  Her SECOND novel was published and on-the-street!!  Whoo-hoo!  So – at the same time that I was making a “Thinking about You” card, I was putting together a “Congratulations” card!  I’d recently gotten the Wondrous Wreath bundle – stamp set and dies – 15% off – and wanted to try it out.  And, one of my Happy Stampers cohorts had recently shared a gate-type card…..so….I killed two cards with one die-cut, as it were.  Take a look-see:

Congrats Gate Card Outside 2 watermarked

Now, folks.  I have a terrible confession to make to you here today.  I am not a completely dumb person (no, THAT’S not the terrible confession!), but this card kind of bamboozled me!  I didn’t have the card cuts, so I had to…..gasp…do MATH!  And it was ever so hard math, too!  Or at least it APPEARED to be.  Not.  Really – take the long side, divide by two.  Divide that by two.  And wa-la.  Except I had to wa-la like 4 times before it opened and closed correctly.  I didn’t take pictures of the 3 times that weren’t so stellar.  No digital evidence except this blog, and I’ll swear I was hacked! 🙂  But, I finally got it.  And here’s what it looks like open:

Congrats Gate Card Outside 5 open watermarked

I started with a piece of Crushed Curry Card Stock – 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″.  I scored and folded it at 2 1/8″ from each short end.  Then, I dug back into my Adventure Bound DSP and decided to make the “gate” card look like….a gate!  I cut the DSP to fit and SNAIL’d the pieces onto the two “doors” and also onto a square for the front of the card.  That 3″ square piece of Crushed Curry “closes” the gate (although it doesn’t “hold” anything closed).  It’s just SNAIL’d onto the left (as you look at it) door of the gate – and not on the other side (she says needlessly!).

Congrats Gate Card Outside 3 watermarked

Then I started to play with the Wonderful Wreath for the barn door.  The stamp is a 2 or 3 part set, so I stamped the first piece in Crushed Curry (this is all on some Whisper White CS), the second step is in Calypso Coral and the final piece is in Bermuda Bay.  With the wreath all stamped and festive looking, I cut it out with the matching die.  I also cut the “ribbon bow” out – in Crushed Curry – with its die.  I used some Dimensionals to put the wreath onto the “door” and Glue-Dot’d the bow in place.  And then didn’t like how it looked – kinda nekkid and lonesome.  So, I made a little Linen Thread Bow and glued that on with a little Multi-Purpose Liquid Glue. But it still wasn’t – quite – right…..So, I glued one of the Something Borrowed embellishments on top of the bows (with a couple of Glue Dots).  And THEN it was juuuuuuuusssst right! 🙂

Congrats Gate Card Outside closeup watermarked

I stamped the sentiment from the Bitty Banner Bundle in Calypso Coral onto a piece of Daffodil Delight CS and die cut it with the coordinating framelit.  I SNAIL’d that onto the wreath and added a few Crushed Curry and Daffodil Delight Itty Bitty Flowers (from the Itty Bitty Accent Punch pack) with glue dots.  The flowers each got a small Rhinestone Jewel and….the front gate was done!

Congrats Gate Card Outside 1 watermarked

The inside started with a piece of Whisper White CS and got a Crushed Curry sentiment from the Simply Wonderful stamp set.  Rounding out the inner liner is the Simply Wonderful flower that I inked up with my Crushed Curry and Wild Wasabi Stampin’ Write Markers.  Done!

Congrats Gate Card Inside 2 watermarked

Congrats Gate Card Inside 1 watermarked

I hope it gave her a smile when she opened it – that it made her think of barns and horses and the open prairie of Colorado where she lives.  And that it lifted her heart! 🙂

And I hope that YOU enjoyed my share for the day!
