Well – we made it thru another week! It’s Friday! Whoo-hoo!
Guess what else? Yep – 14 days. In 14 days I’ll leave here and head down to the airport to fly home the next day. Cuz two days after that…we’re leavin’ on a jet plane for Washington! Double-triple-QUADRUPLE WHOO-HOOO!
For now, though – let’s get down to business!
Not monkey business.
Nope. GIRAFFE business! Today’s card features a long-necked even-toed ungulate (aka – an adorable giraffe!) from the new Animal Outing stamp set – which is handily bundled with the Animal Friends Thinlits. I added it to some Animal Expedition DSP and a little dry embossing. Take a look-see:
Happy Thursday, y’all – and welcome to another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!! Today’s a color challenge, and I hope you’ll check out everyone’s projects when you’re done here! I love these colors (although I got a little jiggy with the pink…) – and know you will, too.
I pulled out one of my favorite papers from the Petal Promenade DSP and took inspiration from a card my friend and team member Clara Shore made. Then I added a pretty sentiment from the Accented Blooms stamp set. Take a look-see:
Happy happy HAAWWWWMP Day!!! AND – I think we’re going to have this weekend off so it really IS hump day!! 🙂 Whoo-Hoo!!
There are a couple of new announcements down below – one about a super Joining Special coming up on 1 July and the other about our Buy-Three-Get-One Free DSP Sale – also on the horizon and starting on 1 July. So be sure to check them out, okay?
My card today uses some ideas from the catalog for the new Follow Your Dreams stamp set – bundled with the Chase Your Dreams Framelits (so you can get them together and save 10%). And I added a some Tranquil Textures and Twinkle Twinkle DSPs. Take a look-see:
Hey y’all – this is my second post of the day – but…this news I saw this morning was just too cool to not share right away! 🙂
Stampin’ Up! just announced an amazing and awesome joining promotion during July! During this promotion, new recruits will receive a FREE assortment of Classic Stampin’ Pads of their choice with their Starter Kit!
Good mornin’, y’all! Now – it’s Tuesday and in the normal scheme of things I’d be bringing you a card for the Stamp Ink Paper Challenge. But – this week, the challenge is Shaker Cards.
I brought nothing – as in nada, zero, zilch – to make a shaker card. Not a bauble or bead – no Window Sheets – no Foam Adhesive strips. Nuthin’.
So – I bowed out – but that doesn’t mean you couldn’t go play if you want! I’ll give you the challenge badge and a link down below! Have fun playing.
What I did make for today is a card squarely back in my wheelhouse – and it even had a weathervane (guess the stamp set?)! I love weathervanes – we actually have 4 or 5 of them – all horse-themed.
And none actually on a roof.
These things take time! One day… 😉
The stamp set I’m talking about is, of course, the lovely new Country Road set – which was another one of those “I MUST have that right away” sets for me! And look what happened when I vintage-i-fied it a little and added it to some Wood Textures DSP. Take a look-see:
Happy New Week, y’all! Hope you had a wonderful weekend! I worked a bit on Saturday, then did my grocery shopping and a little new-clothes shopping(now WAY more fun than a year ago!!). Then Sunday was all cards all the time.
Oh – and laundry… 🙂
And – I was so proud of myself. After sitting on my…you know what…most of the day, I rewarded myself. By going to the treadmill downstairs for 30 min.
Are you impressed? But wait. There’s more. After THAT – I went swimming. In a pool. In. An. Actual. Swimsuit.
Now – I DID double check first that no one else was in the pool area – but…Still. 😉
So, if you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video, thank you so much for spending part of your weekend with me! If not, but you’d like to check out how to make this card today, here’s the link to the video on YouTube.
Hey y’all – it’s Sunday! Which means….it’s Facebook Live video night!
Of course that also makes it Monday-eve, but…I choose not to think about that aspect of the whole thing!
As is mostly usual for Sunday, I’ll be live tonight at 8pm eastern right here on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page. We’re going to make a card with the pretty Petal Promenade DSP and…the new A Big Thank You stamp set. Take a Sneaky Peek!
Hey, y’all! It’s way later on a Saturday (or any day, for that matter!) than you’re used to seeing me, but…I was tickled (and…amazed!!) to be invited by my friend Kylie Bertucci to be the guest on the Crazy Crafters Blog Hop!
Of course I said of course!! 🙂
For these hops, everyone who plays along CASEs a card they find on my blog. Including me! So – I went thru some past posts and found one that really appealed to me. I loved the DSP and stamped flowers and the layout!
And then I CASE’d it with current goodies! The centerpiece is the new Dandelion Wishes stamp set and some pretty Garden Impressions DSP. Take a look-see:
