Stampin’ Up! Hearts Come Home For Mittens!

Happy Saturday, y’all – hoping you’ve emerged from the turkey coma and that your leftovers are leftover no more!

Please mark your calendars for Monday, 27 Nov – all day long – Stampin’ Up! is giving everyone FREE SHIPPING with no minimum order!  And I’ll still have my Double Peppermint Points ordering special going on, too – so it’s a double whammy of good!  Get your wish lists going and think about the folks on your gift list this year, too! 🙂

Perhaps you’ll grab up the Smitten Mittens stamp set or the Hearts Come Home set – both of which lent their creative beauty to my card for today.  Take a look-see:

This layout comes from the Sunday Stamps sketch challenge.

I started with the fun Marbled Background stamp for the card front.  I inked it up with Marina Mist ink and stamped it off twice – then I stamped a panel of Whisper White (on the third stamp).  It’s matted on Marina Mist card stock with Fast Fuse.

I used my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to align and stamp the sentiment from the Hearts Come Home set in Basic Black Archival Ink.

After stamping the sentiment, I ran the matted panel thru the Big Shot in the Softly Falling TIEF.

See the pretty scalloped ribbon??  That’s Marina Mist 3/8″ Scalloped Velvet Ribbon – and it’s from the Sweet Soiree Embellishment Kit in the 2018 Occasions Catalog!  Pretty, huh??  I wrapped a length of it around the panel and secured it in the back with scotch tape.  

I cut three little 1 3/8″ squares of Whisper White for the art.  On two of them, I stamped a little mitten from Smitten Mittens in Marina Mist ink.  Those are matted on Silver Foil scalloped squares, that I cut with my Squares Layering Framelits.

The middle art is the snowflake from Smitten Mittens – heat embossed in Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder – and matted on a Marina Mist scalloped square.  I popped all three on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  To finish it off, I added two silver hearts from the Metallic Enamel Shapes and a few Black Rhinestone Jewels.

On the inside, I stamped a second Hearts Come Home sentiment in Basic Black Archival Ink on a Whisper White panel.  Then I added two small mittens – in stamped-off-twice Marina Mist over the top.  I finished with another Black Rhinestone Jewel.

I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Marina Mist mat and into my Basic Black card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Smitten Mittens in Marina Mist on the front…

…and on the envelope flap!

Et Voila!  Marina Mist, White, Silver and Black – an elegant color combination and perfect for Smitten Mittens and the Hearts Come Home stamp set.  Hope you like!

So – I sorta forgot something while I was gone.

Finn is a bit of a chow-hound-beggar dog.

And he loves yoghurt.

Mostly, I think, because the cats love yoghurt.

Anything they love – he loves more!

The other night, I was taking a bath and indulging in some Pumpkin Pie Chobani.

Don’t judge – people drink wine in the tub.  Why not eat yoghurt?!?

Finn – as is his norm – was sound asleep by the door.

Until he heard the scrape-scrape of me reaching the bottom of the tub.

And then….

Let me get it all, Mom…

Wait – there’s some more on this side…

MMMMM….soooooo gooood…
