Stampin’ Up! Hand Delivered and Shared With Love Sneak Peek!

Happy Friday, my peeps!  Guess what’s coming today!  To my house!  The Big Brown Truck!

And guess what the man in the brown shorts is bringing?  Yep – my Pre-Order (okay – my SECOND pre-order!!).  I.  Can.  Hardly.  Wait!

Expect to see some projects soon with even more new goodies!

Today is no exception – the stamp set I’m using today is one of the cool Host-Exclusive stamp sets in the new 2018-2019 Annual Catalog.  It’s called Hand Delivered.  I used a few sentiments and flowers from it – and added more of the Share What You Love suite of goodies.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one comes from the MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge.

I also played along with the tic-tac-toe challenge at The Paper Players!  This one works across the top row AND down the left column!

Finally – I think it’s pretty feminine, so…playing along with the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge!

I started with a piece of gorgeous Share What You Love Specialty DSP and matted it with Liquid Glue on a So Saffron panel for the card front.

Next up is a banner of So Saffron, cut with the Banner Triple Punch and adhered to the card front with Liquid Glue.

For the art, I first cut a piece of Very Vanilla card stock and embossed it in the Layered Leaves Dynamic TIEF.  Then I cut it down to its final size and cut a 2 3/8″ circle in the middle with a Stitched Shapes Framelits die.

I cut out the yellow flower from another piece of the Share What You Love DSP – making the panel large enough to fit behind the circle die cut.  Then I adhered it to a So Saffron mat with Liquid Glue.

I used regular and Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop the embossed panel over the mat and then I used Liquid Glue to adhere the whole thing to the card front.

The sentiment, from Hand Delivered (host-exclusive set in the new catalog), is stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a strip of Vellum card stock. I snipped a banner end with my Paper Snips and adhered it with a Glue Dot under just the left side of the banner.

I adhered two Petal Passion Embellishment leaves with a Glue Dot then added a pretty silver flower from the Share What You Love Embellishment Kit.  A double-loop Billie Moan bow of Linen Thread finished off the decoration.  I added a few So Saffron Share What You Love Artisan Pearls to the middle of the large yellow flower and the card front was done!

Or…so I thought.  The un-adorned “expanse” of So Saffron card stock (the banner) was making me itchy!  It was bugging me no end, y’all!  So…I added some faux stitches with my Smoky Slate Stampin’ Write Marker.  And that made the itching stop! 😉

On the inside, I stamped another Hand Delivered sentiment in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink to a Very Vanilla panel.  Then I added a couple of cute little flowers from the same set and colored them with my So Saffron and Pear Pizzazz Stampin’ Write Markers.   I figured – what the heck!? – and added some Petal Pink Share What You Love Artisan Pearls, too!

I matted the panel on So Saffron and then adhered it inside my Crumb Cake card base with Liquid Glue, added the card front with Liquid Glue as well, and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got more of the sweet little flowers from the Hand Delivered set in Tuxedo Black on the front.  Then I colored them with So Saffron, Blushing Bride and Pear Pizzazz Stampin’ Write Markers…

…and I added more of the Share What You Love Specialty DSP to the envelope flap.  Betcha sorta figured that, huh?? 🙂

Et Voila!  The Hand Delivered stamp set is a fun one – and it’s got quite the range of sentiments in it!  And I know I keep using this gorgeous Share What You Love Specialty DSP.  Sorry.  Can’t help it very much!  Hope you like!

May the Fourth be with you.

Finn Fan Fix

You know, I’m really so grateful that Finn is “back”.  In many ways I was expecting a deficit.

But – we’ve been pretty blessed.

One thing I sort of did wish he’d come away with was a little wariness around the horses.

I was destined to be disappointed on this one, y’all.



They’re having a meeting of the minds.

His mind: “I.  Am.  Dog.  Do my bidding.”

Her mind:  “Pu-leeeese. ROFL!!!!”

  1. Such precious expressions on Finn’s face and not sure which horse that is…Bo, Cady, Serah? I think they are having a tete a tete about being sorry about what happened 🙂 Now, about your are fantastic at the faux stitching and very brave to do it after the card was put together…PERFECT…at least with my eye sight!! Have a wonderful weekend.

    • stampsnlingers

      Yep – I held my breath and my tongue-just-right. It was a little nerve-wracking! But – it was NECESSARY! 🙂 I think they’re just looking at each other like…whatchoo lookin’ at anyway?!? Thanks much, Karen! 🙂

  2. Barbara Riefner

    I am surprised. I thought he’d be a little more wary of the horses. Guess he is a forgiving little guy!!!

    • stampsnlingers

      Actually – I think he doesn’t even associate them with his trauma. I think he was sniffing in the grass – and then he “woke up” at the vet. Which means as far as he’s concerned, those are still just “the girls”. The brain apparently – even a dog’s, I assume – goes to great lengths to protect us from trauma. 🙂

  3. Great card, Mary! The first thing I noticed, and liked, was the ‘stitching’ on the banner. I can understand why you were itching. I agree with Karen though, that you were very courageous in doing AFTER you thought the card was done. I am not brave enough to do it BEFORE putting it on the card.
    Glad to see Finn and the horses communicating. Yeah, he needs to be careful, but you don’t want him to be afraid of them either. And, what is ROFL? I don’t know techie shorthand.

    • stampsnlingers

      ROFL = Rolling On the Floor Laughing!! And you’re right – I don’t want him afraid of them – just respectful of the damage they can do even without meaning to – the same as we teach ANY kid or adult when they’re around horses!! Thanks so much – as you say – scary to do the stitches after I was “done” – but…necessary! 🙂

  4. Your card is absolutely stunning Mary! Love the colors and the design…perfect in every way! Glad to see that Finn is back to work…herding is what he does. I’m sure that he’ll be more careful next time mom. 😉

    • stampsnlingers

      Thanks very much, Amy! I sure hope he will be… I’m too old for scares like that!! 🙂

  5. Pat

    Beautiful card, Mary. Love that dsp!
    Tell Fearless Finn to be careful around his horse friends, he doesn’t need anymore thumps on his noggin. I think I told you this before but I’ll say it again: your horse is beautiful!

    • stampsnlingers

      Thanks much, Pat – love this paper so much! And yes – she’s pretty beautiful (she says with no bias whatsoever! 🙂 )

  6. Kate

    The Finn needs a helmet…

    • stampsnlingers

      Probably! And pet health insurance! 🙂

  7. sandym

    Mary, what a beautiful card! I love the colors, what a great layout and the little embellishments are adorable. What fun to see your critters interacting, too! Thanks so much for sharing with us at The Paper Players!

    • stampsnlingers

      Thanks so much, Sandy! Appreciate you stopping by to leave a comment! 🙂

  8. Susan K

    Beautiful card. I love the flower in the negative space of the embossed panel. I always forget to try that! I hadn’t realized that the stamp set’s flowers match the paper perfectly! Just came together beautifully. Glad Finn is totally back, with no deficits! I think he’s actually telling her he’s going to watch her…he just can’t do the two-finger pointing at eyes thing. 😂

    • stampsnlingers

      Ha ha ha! I just got a mind picture of Finn doing the two-finger pointy thing!! LOL! Thanks so much, Susan! It’s a pretty cute stamp set! 🙂

    What a beautifully coordinated card and envelope! I like the way your circle showcases the flower of just the right colour – clever cutting there. Thank you for joining us at The Paper Players.

    • stampsnlingers

      Thanks so much, Jan – appreciate you stopping by! 🙂

  10. From the flowers on the envelope to the beautifully finished inside and outside of your card this is truly a great project. Lots of wonderful ideas coming together here. It has a real homespun quality which is very appealing. Beautiful horse and glad your Finn is on the mend. Thanks so much for sharing on the “Feminine Anything Goes” challenge this week at Watercooler Wednesday.

    • stampsnlingers

      Thanks very much, Penny! Appreciate you stopping by and leaving such a nice comment! 🙂

  11. Mary, I love the way you’ve combined the challenges. What a wonderful combination of colours and shapes! You have a way with choosing just the right papers and inks! I’m so glad that Finn is back to his energetic self. Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.

    • stampsnlingers

      Thank you so much, Heidi! Appreciate the kinds words!

  12. There are a lot of elements on your card – and you have combined them wonderfully! I agree that the faux stitching is the perfect finishing touch. Thanks for joining us at Watercooler Wednesday. Now, I just have to go back and read the rest of the Finn saga!

    • stampsnlingers

      Thanks so much, Gail! Appreciate you stopping by – and taking a look at the Finn-Saga! 🙂
