Stampin’ Up! Fabled Friends for a Friend!

Happy Friday!  And it’s a Friday that I hope is starting to bring warmer weather to my friends in the great frozen almost-anywhere-but-here!!  🙂

I have a harbinger of Spring for y’all today, courtesy of the new Fable Friends stamp set. Take a look-see:

The layout and – to some extent – the color scheme – comes from the FUSION challenge this week.

You see the photo in my card, right?  Bird?  Some black.  Some white.  Some yellows and pink-ish and green-ish-es?  Okay – it’s mostly the sketch. 😉

I started with some Grapefruit Grove DSP (from the 2018-2020 In Color DSP), matted on Smoky Slate for the card front.  I added two little flags of Mint Macaron paper (Subtles DSP).  I cut the ends of the strips with the Banner Triple Punch and adhered them with Liquid Glue.

I used my Stamparatus to stamp the sweet Fable Friends momma-duck and her children in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink onto a piece of Whisper White.  I added a sentiment in Grapefruit Grove.

With some Stampin’ Blends, I colored the ducks – Light and Dark Pineapple Punch and Dark Mango Melody.  I used the Mango Melody Stampin’ Write Marker for legs and bills.  Their clothes are in Mint Macaron and Petal Pink Blends.  Momma is a bit of a rebel – and picked a Calypso Coral hat!

I used my Lemon Lime Twist Stampin’ Write Marker to add a little grass under all of their duck-feet, then I adhered the panel to a Smoky Slate mat and popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I tied a bow from some Petal Pink/Whisper White 5/8″ Variegated Ribbon and adhered it with a Glue Dot to finish off the card front.

On the inside, I added a Grapefruit Grove sentiment from Fable Friends to a Whisper White panel.  Then I stamped and colored some more duck-children and grass in the corner.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Smoky Slate mat and into my Mint Macaron card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Fable Friends kids  – on grass! – on the front…

…and a little more Mint Macaron Subtles DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  What a sweet little set this is!  Adorable little images and sentiments for spring…for friendship…for babies and Easter! Versatile AND adorable?  Yep – that’s the Fable Friends stamp set!  Hope you like!

Retired Products Still Available

Check out my current Retired Goodies list and save yourself a bundle!

Select Sale-A-Bration Items Available While Supplies Last

Redemption numbers for the following Sale-A-Bration products have exceeded our forecast and are continuing strong. Our inventory for these popular items is not yet completely depleted, but we wanted you to be aware that they are going fast and may not be available through the entire Sale-A-Bration period.  That means – if you love these goodies, get a $50 order in (before shipping and tax) quick as you can and pick them now as your free SAB item!!

Grapefruit Grove & Lovely Lipstick Foil Sheets (item 149712) and the Precious Parcel Card Kit (item 149750)

Reminder!  The Sale-A-Bration freebie – Organdy Ribbon Pack – is currently not available to order!

It was wildly popular and we depleted our supply WAY faster than anticipated – creating a lot of backorders!   We have a shipment coming in to fulfill backorders, but unfortunately, this initial shipment will help us fulfill only orders that have already been placed. Once backorders have been fulfilled, a second shipment will arrive at the beginning of March, which will allow us to turn on this item again; it will be available while supplies last only.

1/8″ Circle Punch Availability

Stampin’ Up! posted this update this morning.

We’ve been notified by the manufacturer of our 1/8″ Circle Punch (item 134365) that they will no longer be able to produce this item. As a result, this item will no longer be available for purchase after June 3, 2019, or once our inventory is depleted—whichever happens first.

Sale-A-Bration Going On Now!

Sale-A-Bration is Stampin’ Up!’s way of saying Happy New Year – and it’s our favorite time of year!  Shop, host and/or join the team to get great deals and extra bonus goodies!

  1. The cuteness of your card and the cuteness of your fur child put a smile on my face! Thank you for that!! Have a great weekend.

  2. What a sweet card! Love the little duck family, perfectly designed! Cute Star Wars/Star Trek/whatever space movie that was character… 🙂

    • stampsnlingers

      Oh – you wound me! I’m not even going to tell you where it came from. You don’t deserve to know with your blatantly disrespectful attitude towards two of the best movie/tv show franchises EVER! HOW can we be friends?!? 😉

  3. Kate

    Card is just ducky! (Sorry…couldn’t help it…😉)
    Freckled schnoozles are the best!!!

  4. Bernice P

    Mary, this card is adorable… TFS..

  5. Elisha Smith

    Super sweet card – love momma’s hat😉 I also love the pic of Finn-Yoda🤣😂🤣 He doesn’t seem to mind wearing a cloak at all😀 I bet he has some mean Jedi moves like Yoda too! (We saw the first Star Wars movie for the third time on our honeymoon in 1977) Lol!! Have a great weekend!

    • stampsnlingers

      That’s awesome! I saw the first (and still the best!) Star Wars 10 times!! Thanks for the kind words, Elisha! 🙂

  6. Susan K

    Love the colors you used. Definitely springy and I needed it. Beginning to think I have SAD with these cold and dreary days. Even Finny looks like he’s hiding from the cold.

    • stampsnlingers

      Yea – I’m ready for longer days already! Thanks very much, Susan! 🙂

  7. Karen

    This card is absolutely adorable. Love it, Love it, Love it! May the force be with you, Finn! 🤣😂🤣

    • stampsnlingers

      The Force is strong in him, for sure. “Move along, Mom, this is not the dog-eating-the-cat-food (AGAIN!) that you see”…. Thanks, Karen! 🙂

  8. BarbGhig

    Yes, your design is based mostly on the sketch, but I love how you added elements, including colors from the photo! Such a sweet card and lovely stamping on the side, too, Mary’!
    Thanks so much for playing along with us at Fusion!

    • stampsnlingers

      Thank you, Barb! It was fun to make! Appreciate you stopping by! 🙂
