Stampin’ Up! Gingham’d Fable Friends

Good morning, y’all!  I hope your week is going well!  Want to remind you that today is the very last day for you to get in on my 2019 Occasions bundles – where you’ll get big savings and some extra freebies.  Not to mention Sale-A-Bration goodies!  Scroll down for the deets and then don’t delay – get signed up right away!

I’ve got a sweet little card for you today – it uses a stamp set that you may have overlooked in your perusals of the 2019 Occasions Catalog.  It’s called Fable Friends and it’s ridiculously cute!  Then I kicked it up a notch (BAMM!) with some greenery from the Wonderful Floral Framelits, a little Gingham Gala DSP and a bit of Basket Weave.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one was inspired by the sketch challenge over at the Paper Craft Crew.

I started with a piece of the Gingham Gala DSP, matted on Flirty Flamingo card stock for the card front.

The next layer is Whisper White, embossed in the awesome Basket Weave Dynamic TIEF, then cut with a new Rectangle Stitched Framelits die, then I matted it on Flirty Flamingo and adhered it with Liquid Glue.

I stamped the totes-adorbs little squirrel dude from Fable Friends in Early Espresso on a piece of Whisper White, then cut it out with a circle Stitched Shapes Framelits die.  I colored him with my Stampin’ Blends in Light and Dark Crumb Cake, Balmy Blue, Granny Apple Green and Flirty Flamingo.

I used my Dark Poppy Parade for his scarf and sleeve bands – and Dark Mango Melody for the middle of the flower.

I cut another circle Stitched Shapes Framelits die from Vellum card stock and embossed it in the Basket Weave Dynamic TIEF.  I adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

Since I love it so much, I pulled out the Wonderful Floral Framelits and cut several leaves from Granny Apple Green, Lemon Lime Twist and Vellum card stocks, then I adhered them all artistic-like with Liquid Glue.  I popped the squirrel on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

My sentiment, from Fable Friends, is heat-embossed in White Stampin’ Emboss Powder on Granny Apple Green and cut with the die from Needlepoint Elements.  I added it to the card front with Liquid Glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I tied a tiny Lemon Lime Twist bow from the Organdy Ribbon pack (this is a free goody from the Sale-A-Bration catalog with a $50 purchase) and adhered it with a Glue Dot.  Then I added some Share What You Love Artisan Pearls and the card front was done!

On the inside, I simply added grass from Fable Friends in Granny Apple Green and Lemon Lime Twist to a Whisper White panel.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Flirty Flamingo mat and into my Granny Apple Green card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Fable Friend grass across the front…

…and more of the Gingham Gala DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Look at that face!  Birdseed wouldn’t melt in his mouth! 😉 As you might imagine, Finn is NOT a fan of this particular card.  It’s just…wrong…on so many levels!  But – I love this Fable Friends stamp set – the little images are darling and the sentiments perfect!  Hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix

 

The other day, my friend, who lives on a cattle ranch in eastern Colorado, sent me a picture.

She said she needed the Man’s help.

Uhm….

  1. I can see why Finn would not like the critter you chose for your card, but he would love your coloring, embossing and layering…it’s squirlopuloustic.

    • stampsnlingers

      Okay – that is SO not a word!! But…it SHOULD be! Thanks very much, Karen! 🙂

  2. That is about the cutest card that I’ve ever seen!! Love the little squirrel and your layers and die cuts are just perfect! Love every detail!

    You really need to get Finn going on his herding detail…he’d have the cattle all moved in a jiffy, given the chance. Now…they may not be where you wanted them to be, but they’d be moved! 😉

    • stampsnlingers

      LOL!! True – that’s be SOMEwhere!! 🙂 Thanks very much, Amy! 🙂

  3. Sandra Warthen

    I have days when I sure would love me some wide open spaces—Love this colorful card. You did a beautiful job. (as always)

  4. Well, he is a shepherd is he not??? He would do that job with aplomb.
    Gorgeously cute card. Well done!

    • stampsnlingers

      Yes – as long as they would FOLLOW him! He’s still a little confused about where a shepherd belongs… 😉 Thanks so much, Julie! 🙂

  5. Kate

    Pretty nifty card!
    I think the Finn could help, but those sheep are sure heftier than most.

    • stampsnlingers

      Yes – and they’re black sheep – so they’re likely way more recalcitrant than most! 😉 Thanks, Mom! 🙂

  6. Susan K

    I’m loving that set more each time I see it. Very cute card, even if Finnman wouldn’t like it. He would like those wide open Colorado spaces. (Are those bones?)

    • stampsnlingers

      He might like the wide open spaces! And no – I think those are cow feed leftovers! Thanks very much, Susan! 🙂

  7. Kathy Fennell

    Hey Mary! I love the colors you used on this card, they are so bright and beautiful. The stamp set is just so cute! I might have to case this one if you don’t mind. Thanks for sharing with us. 🙂

    • stampsnlingers

      Thanks very much, Kathy – and of course you can CASE it! Have fun! 🙂

  8. Karen

    Hello Mary,
    This card is so adorable. I love, love, love it.
    The colors are gorgeous together. WOW!

  9. I love your card! It feels like spring! Thank you for joining the paper craft crew for this challenge!
