Stampin’ Up! Dapper Musical Season

Well, y’all – here we are again at Friday!  And – I want to let you know that you guys have helped me reach one of my year-end goals with Stampin’ Up!  Thank you so much!! I surely do appreciate all y’all helping and supporting my business!  I very cavalierly rewarded myself – I went smack out to the Delta website and helped myself to a First Class upgrade!  

Both ways!! Which means- two free bags.  Seventy pounds each.  

Which means – I can also take clothes with me!! 😉

Now – late breaking news (I even delayed this post a tad to tell you!)!  Overnight – the $1000 mark was reached on the Super Workshop!!  Whooo-hoooo, you guys!!  Thank you all so much!!  Sheila Larson will be receiving all the great thank you gifts!!  I’ve changed the Host Code, now, to one that y’all can use for a couple of weeks.

So – to the business at hand! At our meeting on Sunday, Ms. Amy gave away goodies (she always does!!).  And I picked the new Musical Season stamp set and the bundled Musical Instruments Framelits.  Which means I’ve been sort of itching to use it – which I did.  Today.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one comes courtesy of The Paper Players sketch challenge this week.

I started with the pretty script paper from the Merry Music Specialty DSP and matted it on some Silver Foil for the card front.  The middle panel is a different design in the Merry Music Specialty DSP, also matted on Silver Foil and adhered to the card front with Liquid Glue.

Then I wrapped a piece of Basic Black 3/8″ Shimmer Ribbon around both panels, securing it in the back with scotch tape.

I didn’t do anything to the middle piece of Whisper White, except to mat it on Silver Foil and pop it over the other elements with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Then I stamped the guitar (could it be a sitar?!?) – in Dapper Denim on a piece of Whisper White and cut it with it’s matching Musical Instruments Framelits die.  I popped it over the center panel with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the Musical Season sentiment in Dapper Denim on a strip of Whisper White.  I snipped banners in the end with my Paper Snips, edged the banner with my Dapper Denim Stampin’ Write Marker and adhered it with Liquid Glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals (on the end).  A few silver heart Metallic Enamel Shapes finished off the card front.

On the inside, I inked the guitar/sitar again with Dapper Denim, stamped it off three times and then stamped it in the middle of a Whisper White panel.  When it was completely dry, I rubbed it with my Embossing Buddy and then heat embossed the second sentiment from Musical Season in Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder.

I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Silver Foil mat and into my Dapper Denim card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got a full-strength Dapper Denim guitar/sitar on the front…

…and a little more of the Merry Music Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I like the black/silver/blue color scheme, don’t you?  And this Musical Season bundle is very sweet – and melds perfectly with the Merry Music Specialty DSP.  Hope you like!

Finn-Fan Fix  

A couple years back, my Mom gave us a red collar that lights up in the dark.

Well – it lights up in the day, too, but…

Anywho – we had Buck then, and he was always on the leash, so we could always tell where he was.

At the end of the leash.  Hello?  Try to keep up!

Well, Finn isn’t always on the leash.  And now that it’s starting to be dark when we finish up the horses at night, we’ve started putting it on him.

We call him “Glow Worm”.

There.  See him?

  1. What a beautiful card Mary! The colors are perfect and I love you design! Oh, almost missed the glow worm in that picture. Too funny, had no idea that they had light-up collars! 🙂

  2. Debra Anderson

    Beautiful card, Mary. I think that instrument is a mandolin. Love this layout.

  3. Ellie Peckler

    Mary, I love your card. Clean and simple, plus Dapper Denim is my favorite color of all time. Congratulations on reaching your goal and have a great weekend! – Ellie

  4. That is absolutely beautiful, Mary. Love the mix of the DSP, works perfectly!

  5. That glow…too funny. That card…too wonderful…and I’m so glad my set will arrive today! Another CASE will be in the works. You rock!

  6. Kate

    Right behind the plaid/pines/cones, or maybe beside the the music! Great choice and great use of it.
    Kudos on the goal achieved. Gotta love 1st class and I suspect your colleagues, not to mention the public at large, will be grateful for the clothes option.

    • NO ONE wants to see me without clothes, so…yes. The extra weight allowance will be good for all involved! Thanks much, Mom! 🙂

      • Kate

        Well..I’d be happy to see you any way I could. Lol
        And, btw, I do NOT see the dark dog, so guess you’d just have to call that worm and hope it comes.

  7. Annie Abrahamson

    Your card is beautiful! I love the color combo, the die cut, sentiment, DSP…just everything! Thanks for playing along over at The Paper Players this week.

  8. This is such a lovely card! A nice color palette and the combination of stamps and DSP is just divine!

  9. Another beauty. I’m with your mom, after plaid, pine cones and leaves. It’s right up there anyway. It was one of the first sets I order from the catty and haven’t used it yet!!!

  10. Susan K

    Wahoo! So glad you met your super workshop goal! Very happy for you! And congrats to Sheila on winning a ton of goodies!
    Beautiful card. Love your color and great take on sketch

  11. Sandra Warthen

    The picture doesn’t do this card justice. This card is so beautiful. I love the silver layers.
