Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Festive Poinsettia for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Happy Thursday, y’all – and welcome to another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!! This is another installment of the Joint Blog Hop between the Happy Inkin’ Thursday and Happy Stampers Blog Hop ladies!  I hope you really enjoy all the inspiration you can get from our talented folks!

I pulled out some Festive Farmhouse DSP and the Peaceful Poinsettia bundle to work with our sketch AND color scheme!  Take a look-see:

With these Combined Hops, we get a sketch and a color challenge and we can use one or both.  Take a gander at what we had this week!

I also played along with the Christmas-y challenge over at The Card Concept.

I started by adhering a piece of wood-grain paper from the Festive Farmhouse DSP to a piece of Cherry Cobbler card stock for the card front.  Then I took a smaller piece and divided it into three panels, which I adhered to another Cherry Cobbler panel, and then adhered it to the card front.

I stamped the sentiment from Peaceful Poinsettia in Mossy Meadow on a strip of the wood-grain Festive Farmhouse DSP.  Then I snipped a banner end, edged it with my Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Write Marker and adhered it with Liquid Glue to the card front.

I used a couple of pine bough dies from the Pretty Pines Thinlits to cut a few Mossy Meadow boughs.  And the Frosted Bouquet Framelits to cut a couple of Cherry Cobbler berries.  Finally, I cut some holly boughs from Sparkle Glimmer Paper with the dies in the Detailed Poinsettia Thinlits.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere all my embellishments to the card front, in preparation for my Poinsettia!

I cut the detailed flower from Cherry Cobbler card stock using the two-die method from the Detailed Poinsettia Thinlits.  I also cut a plain Whisper White solid flower.  I used my Light and Dark Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends to color that Whisper White flower – adding shading in the center.  Then I used Liquid Glue to adhere the detailed flower atop the colored solid flower.  I brushed the inside of the flower with Clear Wink of Stella – in hindsight…should do this step BEFORE adhering the detailed flower! LOL!

I added some Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of my flower and used them to wind some Gold Metallic Thread, then I popped the flower onto the card front.

I added some gold Metallic Pearls to the middle of the flower – and one to the end of my sentiment banner, and the card front was done!

On the inside, I cut another Detailed Poinsettia from Cherry Cobbler and adhered it in a corner of a Whisper White panel with Liquid Glue, then I snipped the excess card stock.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat and into my Gray Granite card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got two Detailed Poinsettia holly-sprig die cuts in Whisper White on the front…

…and a little more Festive Farmhouse DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Pines, Peaceful Poinsettias and Frosted Bouquets – all coming together with some Festive Farmhouse DSP for a collage-y Christmas card.  Hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! 2019 Occasions Catalog Sneak Peek Gingham Butterfly Gala

Good morning!!  Hard to believe it’s already….HAAAWWWWMPPP DAY!!  Whoo-hoo!  And – one week from tomorrow it’s time for your stretchy pants, huh?  Y’all doing turkey?  Ham?  Turkey AND Ham?!?

We’re in the turkey and ham camp.  We’re going to smoke a turkey this year and let Honeybaked do their thing for the ham.  And then we’re going to try to keep the rest of the over-abundance to a minimum.

I don’t hold out much hope! 😉

So – yesterday was a pretty dreary, cold and rainy day here in GA – and I think that drove my decision to use a new stamp set from the 2019 Occasions Catalog!

Also – I had this…

How could I resist?!?

So – I made you a card with the new Butterfly Gala stamp set and the bundled Butterfly Duet punch…

…and a little Gingham Gala 6″ x 6″ DSP.

I also used a sweet DSP that is a FREE item in the 2019 Sale-A-Bration catalog, called Botanical Butterfly DSP.

Take a look-see:

The layout for my card is from this week’s TGIF Challenge.

And the color scheme is from the MFT Card Challenge.  I used Gold for my “natural” color! 😉

I started with a piece of Lemon Lime Twist paper from the Gingham Gala 6″ x 6″ DSP (available 3 Jan 19) and matted it on Poppy Parade card stock for the card front.  I wrapped some Solid White Baker’s Twine twice around the panel, securing it in the back with Glue Dots.

The sentiment, from Butterfly Gala (available 3 Jan 19!), is stamped in Early Espresso on a piece of Whisper White, then cut with a circle Stitched Shapes Framelits die.  I added one of the beautiful butterflies from the set – the outline image is in stamped-off-once Early Espresso.  The colors are added as the second-step in stamped-off-once Poppy Parade and Lemon Lime Twist.  I matted the sentiment on a scalloped Poppy Parade circle.

I used the wonderful berry die from the Frosted Bouquet Framelits (which we found out is CARRYING OVER!!!) to cut a couple of boughs from Gold Foil.  These are adhered to the card front with Liquid Glue.

One of the papers in the Botanical Butterflies DSP (available on 3 Jan in the Sale-A-Bration catalog FREE with a $50 purchase) is black and white.  And the butterfly images all match the Butterfly Duet punch.  I cut two of them and colored them with my Light and Dark Granny Apple Green and Light Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blend.  I also stamped (in Early Espresso) and cut some smaller butterflies on the other side of the same paper – which is green tones.

I used Liquid Glue to arrange the butterflies ever-so-artfully about the card and sentiment.  The large butterfly at the top has a few loops of Gold Metallic Thread wound behind it with a Glue Dot.

Then I added some Lemon Lime Twist Gingham Gala Adhesive-Backed Sequins and Pearl Basic Jewels.  Finally, I tied a double-length bow from the Solid White Baker’s Twine and added it with a Glue Dot and the card was done!

On the inside, I added a second sentiment from Butterfly Gala in Early Espresso, then stamped another butterfly.  Once again, the outline and fill images are all stamped-off-once.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Poppy Parade mat and into my Early Espresso card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another Butterfly Gala flutterby on the front – this one in full strength Early Espresso and stamped-off-once Lemon Lime Twist and Poppy Parade…

…and then I added more of the Gingham Gala DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Doesn’t this suite of goodies just brighten your day?!?  We’ve got a ton of wonderful butterfly and flower images coming to us with this new catalog, y’all – and the Gingham Gala suite with it’s Butterfly Gala stamp set is just the first!  Love that Butterfly Duet punch!  And – I think we’ve established how much I love plaid – and gingham!  Hope you like – and have started your shopping list for the new catalog! 🙂

Snowflake Showcase Bundle Updated!

I was just informed that the White Velvet Sheets – a part of the Snowflake Showcase – has been discontinued.  As advertised at the beginning of the promotion, these products were all “while supplies last”.  And once they run out – they’re not being re-ordered.

What does that mean for my special bundles?  Well – I’ve updated the product list to remove the White Velvet Sheets, and reduced the price accordingly.

But folks – if you’ve been thinking you’d wait until the very end of the promotion period – I’d strongly recommend that you NOT wait another moment!  This has been a WILDLY popular set of goodies – and I’d hate for you to miss out.  The stamp sets, thinlits and trinkets are still available – but…there’s no telling for how much longer!

You can click on the picture above to see a fun video showcasing the products.  Then check out the flyer below to take a closer look-see!

Here’s the deets:

  • No limits apply during the customer sales period. So be quick while supplies last!
  • Products available while supplies last from November 1, 2018 until November 30, 2018. This means products will only be available until November 30 or while supplies last, whichever comes first. If a product’s supply is depleted before November 30, it will no longer be available for purchase.
  • Items may be purchased in any type of order.
  • Items may be included as part of a Starter Kit!!  Join now!
  • Ordering deadline:  November 30, 2018; 11:50 PM (MT)

Here’s the updated special money-saving bundle!

Stampin’ Up! Woodland Nature Sings for the Amy’s Inkin’ Krew 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 our theme is Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays!  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 don’t really do “Happy Holidays” so…it was all about Christmas for me.  So, I pulled out a sweet little set from the Annual Catalog called Nature Sings and added a little embossing with the Woodland TIEF.  Take a look-see:

I started with a panel of DSP from the All Is Bright DSP and ran it thru the Big Shot in my Woodland TIEF.  Then I sponged the raised portions of the trees and branches with Crumb Cake ink.  I just kept adding ink until I was happy with it!  Then, with a non-SU! White Gel Pen, I highlighted the “notches” in the trees.  Finally, I matted the panel on Mossy Meadow with Liquid Glue.

I stamped the sentiment from Nature Sings in Soft Suede ink on a piece of Very Vanilla, then cut it with an oval Stitched Shapes Framelits die.  Over the sentiment, I added the pine trees in stamped-off-once Mossy Meadow.  Then I flicked the edges of the oval with my Crumb Cake sponge and popped the oval onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a little toned-down bling with a Corrugated Element and True Gentleman Button – attaching them with Glue Dots.  Then I tied a double-loop bow from Linen Thread and adhered it with a Glue Dot, too.  Finally, I tied a bow from Cherry Cobbler Festive Farmhouse Cotton Twine and stuck it on.

To finish off the card front, I colored a Rhinestone Basic Jewel with my Dark Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blend and adhered it to the sentiment oval.

On the inside, I added a Nature Sings sentiment in Soft Suede to another piece of the All Is Bright DSP.  Across the bottom I added pine boughs in Mossy Meadow, stamping the image twice without re-inking.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Mossy Meadow mat and into my Cherry Cobbler card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got more Nature Sings pine boughs in Mossy Meadow across the front…

…and I added more of the All Is Bright DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  The Nature Sings stamp set is perfect for woodsy Christmas cards – and simply shines when paired up with the Woodland TIEF!  Hope you like!

Now that you’ve seen my card, I hope you’ll take a little time to jump thru all the other projects we have to share. Click any name below, or you can use the Previous Blog button to jump to Auriora’s page or the Next Blog button to see what Sue’s been up to!

Stampin’ Up! A Last Look at OnStage 2018 and Some Sneak Peeks!

Good morning, y’all!  Amy and I had a great trip home after spending a little time with some friends having breakfast on Sunday morning.  The food and company was wonderful – and then the time spent yakking with Amy as we returned to GA was really fun.

Hey – what do you call a wreath of $100 bills??

So – I have a few more pictures from OnStage for you today.  And I’ll be posting more on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page, too – so be sure to check them out, too!

Our last session on Saturday ended with Sara and Shelli and the whole clan on stage!

Stampin’ Up! A Festive Merry Christmas To All!

Good morning!  OnStage 2018 is in the History books!

Wow – what an event – which I’m sure you could tell from the pictures this weekend, right?  We had such a fun time with so many of our team there! 🙂

Amy and I will be on our way home soon.  Hard to believe it’s already over.  Just for your planning – please make note of the fact that I will NOT be doing a video tonight!  Next week!!

I’ve got a pretty Christmas card for you today using some plaid Festive Farmhouse DSP (one of my favorites!!) and the large and lovely snowflake from the Snowfall Thinlits.  I borrowed some sentiments from the Merry Christmas To All bundle, too.  Take a sneak peek!

Stampin’ Up! A Beautiful Glistening Snowfall!

Happy Saturday, y’all!  We’re headed into the last day of OnStage 2019!  Wow – I can hardly believe it’s almost over.  It’s gone by SO fast.

I suppose it really IS true that time-flies-when-you’re-having-fun!  And being here with all these Demos from around the world and, most ESPECIALLY! – with my wonderful teammates from the Critters-N-Creatin’ Krew and Amy’s Inkin’ Krew….has been AWESOME fun!!

Of course – getting FREE goodies AND seeing the new 2019 Occasions Catalog and Sale-a-Bration products doesn’t hurt, either! 😉

My card today is a quick and easy one that really celebrates the new limited-time Snowflake Showcase products – particularly the Snow is Glistening stamp set and the most-wonderful Snowfall Thinlits!  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Feathers, Frost and All Things Thanks!

Good morning and Happy Happy Hawmp Day from Orlando!  Whoo-hoo!!

We had an uneventful trip down yesterday – even if it WAS raining – and got to our condo in good “pretty” time…tip: never get off the freeway.  PAY the toll on the Turnpike.  That’s all I’m saying about that…

Today is CenterStage – which is being held at Epcot!  I’ll head over around lunch time to be a kid-at-heart for a few hours, take in the Wine & Food Festival for a while (and try to walk off the calories – oh heck, who’m I kidding??!  I’m leaving the diet at the condo!!).  I’m excited!!  I love Disney – not gonna lie.  And Epcot is awesome.  Soaring…here I come!!

But – before I head off to see the Mouse, let me show you a fun little (literally!) notecard I made with the Feather & Frost stamp set and the All Things Thanks set.  Take a look-see:
