Stampin’ Up! Picture Perfect Springtime Birthday

Happy Monday, y’all!  And I can say that with a totally straight face – no work means Happy Monday! 🙂

If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video – thanks for spending part of your long-weekend with me!  If not, but you’d like to see how to make this card, here’s the instant-ish replay on YouTube:

I used the new Sale-A-Bration Springtime Foils Specialty DSP (FREE – and available now with a $50 purchase!) and the Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set – and a little surprise from the February Paper Pumpkin! – to make today’s birthday card.  Take a look-see:

This one used the sketch from the MFT Wednesday Card Challenge for the layout. Continue reading

Stampin’ Up! Picture Perfect Springtime Birthday Video Sneak Peek

Good morning!  It’s Sunday – the weather is simply…spectacular here!  It’s been in the low 70’s with clouds that finally broke up in the breeze to leave bright blue skies and big ole puffies floating by!

Makes a girl’s brain turn to the garden!  Which is evidenced by my order at Territorial Seed today – and my planned order from Burpee!  I spent some time this morning prepping beds for the coming planting time!  Wonderful way to spend a couple hours – with my good dog snoozing in the shade close by.

So – since it is Sunday, then you won’t be surprised to be getting a sneak peek of tonight’s Facebook Live video!  I’ll be on at 8pm eastern (that’s our usual time, remember!) over on my Stamps-N-Lingers Facebook Page!  

I’m probably going to bore you  – cuz I’m using the Springtime Foils Specialty DSP again, but…I think you’ll like this one.  Here’s a sneaky peek!

So – I hope you’ll be able to join me tonight – remember, 8pm eastern.  Here’s a link right to the page! Continue reading

Stampin’ Up! A Mother’s Flair in Springtime

Happy Saturday, my peeps!  Hope your weekend has started off well!  Mine started yesterday when I put my work phone on the charger – where it’ll stay until Tuesday morning.  Whoo-hooo for three day weekends!

My card today is for Mother’s Day.  Probably not for my mom – cuz…surprise…blown!  But – you guys could make this for your moms.  It uses the pretty stamp set from the 2018 Occasions catalog called A Mother’s Flair.  And – cuz I’m obsessed! – a little of the Springtime Foils Specialty DSP.  Take a look-see:

I borrowed the layout from the Freshly Made Sketches challenge this week: Continue reading

Stampin’ Up! Heart Happiness Springtime Foils Valentine

Happy Valentine’s Day, y’all!  Hope you’ve got a little something fun and romantic planned, if that’s your thing.  If not, and you tend to think of your significant other as your Valentine every day, then…today’s card will be right up your alley!

I used the Heart Happiness stamp set and two new goodies from the second Sale-A-Bration release (coming on Friday, 16 Feb!) – the Springtime Foils Specialty DSP and the wondrous Basket Weave Dynamic TIEF.  And with all these fun tools, I made a clean and simple Valentine’s card for you.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Magical Day Birthday Card for the Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop!

Good mornin’, y’all – welcome to another edition of Amy’s Inkin’ Krew team blog hop!  Each month we make projects centered around a theme – and this month it’s Birthdays!!  We can interpret that any way we want – so…be sure to check and see everyone’s projects – we’ve got a bunch of talented ladies hopping with us this month!  

I have a little friend (okay – I have a few more than just one friend – but most of them are all grown up!) who will be turning 4 this year.  Her name is Scarlett.  Scarlett is sweet and very much a girly-girl.  I got her a really pretty dress with flowers and butterflies on it to send.  For the card, I decided to go pink.  And sparkly.  And…girly!  The new Magical Day stamp set – and the bundled Magical Mates Framelits seemed like just the ticket.  Take a look-see:

I borrowed the layout from the this month’s Viva La Verve sketch challenge! Continue reading

Stampin’ Up! Sure Do Love Heart Happiness for the Stamp Ink Paper #137

Happy Tuesday, folks – and welcome to another edition of the Stamp Ink Paper challenge!

We had a Tic-Tac-Toe challenge this week – one of my favorites!  In honor of Valentine’s Day (it’s tomorrow, in case you’ve lost track!) I used the Heart Happiness stamp set and the Sure Do Love You bundle.  On top of some of my fave DSP – the Wood Textures DSP.  Take a look-see:

In case you want to play along – and why wouldn’t you?!? – here’s the Stamp Ink Paper #137 Tic-Tac-Toe board.  I went right down the middle column – what will you create!? 🙂 Continue reading

Stampin’ Up! Springtime Foils Celebrate You!

Good mornin’, y’all!  Welcome to another work week!  Never fear – it’ll be over before you know it! 

She says hopefully… 😉

And come Friday – you’ll be able to get the star of today’s card with the release of the new Sale-A-Bration goodies!

If you were able to join me last night for my FB Live video last night, thanks so much for sharing part of your weekend with me!  If not, but would like to see how to make today’s card, then here’s the Youtube sort-of-instant replay!

I’ve made a couple of cards this weekend that are a departure from my norm.  Not tons of layers – no fussy cutting.  I know – weird!  But – thought I’d see if I could do it!  This one lets the beautiful new Springtime Foils DSP shine thru with just the addition of some images from the SAB Amazing You stamp set and matching Celebrate You Thinlits.  Take a look-see:

I used the clean-and-simple layout from this week’s Freshly Made Sketches for this one. Continue reading
