Stampin’ Up! One Big Meaning And Wood Words Patriotic Thank You!

Good morning!  Welcome back to work – at least it’s only a four day work week!  But there’s a lot going on Stampin’ Up!-wise in that four days!  Check it out:

  • My Stamps-N-Lingers 2017-2019 In Colors Bundle Sale ends tomorrow afternoon.
  • The Eastern Palace Bundles sale (Starter or Premium) ends tomorrow afternoon!
  • Your chance to buy an Annual Catalog Share ends tonight!
  • You still an opportunity to get your name into the Jul-Dec Online Host Club!
  • And – OBTW – the new Annual Catalog goes LIVE at 3pm Mountain Time on Thursday!!

Wheew!!  That’s a lotta stuff to pack into a few short days, huh??  There’s a lot of detail and information down below, so be sure to check it all out and take advantage of some great deals happening this week!

Now – on to the card for today.  I promised that I’d share the details and how-to’s on the Memorial Day thank you card that I gave you a glimpse of on yesterday’s post.  It uses the One Great Meaning stamp set, as well as the Wood Words stamp set and coordinating Wood Textures DSP Stack (available Thursday!).  Take a reminder look-see:

I started with a piece of dark wood paper from the Wood Textures DSP Stack and matted it on Cajun Craze card stock.  The center layer, with the sentiment, is another piece of the Wood Textures paper, also matted on Cajun Craze.

To make my sentiment, I first inked the little star cluster image from the Wood Words stamp set in Versamark and stamped it in the corner of the panel.  Then I sprinkled it with Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed it.

I stamped the very appropriate sentiment from One Big Meaning in Cajun Craze in the middle of the panel, then SNAILd it to its Cajun Craze mat and onto the card front.

I wrapped a piece of the new 1/4″ Copper Trim around the card front, securing it in the back with scotch tape.

The stars are from an image in the Wood Words stamp set.  I stamped it once in Versamark and heat embossed it in Copper.  The other two, I stamped in Dapper Denim and Cajun Craze – then sprinkled them with Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heated them up.  This is a cool way to emboss in any color – just be sure to have a moist ink pad, have your embossing powder ready to go and move a little quickly – and the powder will stick just fine.

I fussy cut the stars and ran my Stylus on the back of each arm of all three stars to make them more dimensional.  Then I adhered each star with a Stampin’ Dimensional.  To finish it all off, I adhered a bow from the 1/4″ Copper Trim with a Glue Dot.

On the inside, I repeated the Copper embossing of the Wood Words cluster of stars in the top corner of a Whisper White panel.  I also added a Dapper Denim and Cajun Craze larger star.

I SNAILd the panel to a Cajun Craze mat and into my Thick Whisper White card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another Dapper Denim and Cajun Craze star on the front…


...and some more of the dark wood paper from the Wood Textures DSP Stack on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I love the Americana vintage feel of this patriotic card, don’t you?  One Big Meaning is a wonderful stamp set filled with sentiments to express your gratitude.  And the new Wood Words stamp set goes perfectly with the Wood Textures DSP!  One Big Meaning is available now, and the Wood Words goodies are both going to be available on Thursday afternoon!!  Hope you like and already have these on your wish list!

Finn-Fan Fix…

On Memorial Day, we went over to our friend’s house for dinner.

That’s where Finn’s sister, Scout, lives.

He was sooooo excited to see her!!

His wiggler wiggled.

His barker barked!

His lips grinned.

His boigers boinged!

Finally, they were able to settle down enough for a family portrait.

The little brother has outgrown his older sister, hasn’t he?

Aren’t they pretty pair!?

    They certainly look alike. Bet it was fun watching them!
    Love this card. I am using the wood words set for my Sis and her husband’s anniversary card. The rustic look suits them and they have chickens, so they get roosters!
    Your use of the copper with the patriotic theme was a good idea. Love it!

    • Yea – they’re a hoot, no doubt! Sounds like you’ve got a wonderful anniversary card in the works for your sister! I think this whole Suite is going to be a heavy favorite!! 🙂 Thanks so much, Julie! 🙂

  2. Kathleen VanDeVeere

    They are clearly peas from the same pod!
    Card is very handsome too.

  3. Elisha

    Very cool card! It sounds like it’s easier than it looks – I think the DSP does some of the work. Well done! As always – thank you for the detailed directions! Oh I love a family reunion- and yes, Finn has definitely passed his sister😉 I can’t imagine the wiggling 😂

    • It’s very easy indeed. Even the fussy cutting is quick and easy! I may well do this card – or at least the stars! – for my video on Sunday night! 🙂 Thanks so much, Elisha! 🙂

  4. Such a neat card Mary! The colors are just perfect and I love your clean design! 🙂

  5. RitaR

    Another winning card, Mary! I really like the combo of Cajun Craze, wood dsp and copper embossing …. and the embossed stars are a wonderful embellishment! Cute certainly runs in Finn’s family! I wonder if Scout is a little jealous cause she doesn’t have all the fancy colorful “do-dah’s” attached to HER collar!!!

    • She probably is pretty jealous – of his big tech-ness and his rugged good looks! 🙂 Appreciate the nice words about my card, Rita! 🙂

  6. Susan K

    Very pretty card. Thanks for the directions and cuts. I love your embossing on the stars!
    I’m concerned that Finn’s boigers boinged….that sounds like it could hurt! 😂
