Stampin’ Up! Truckin’ Video Tutorial Sneak Peek

Good morning and happy Saturday!  Hope you’ve got a great weekend planned!

And – I hope that part of your Saturday includes setting aside a little time to join me tonight on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page for a live video tutorial!  We’ll be on at 7pm eastern and will play with a super fun new bundle with a “3-Dimensional” flare!  Can you guess?  Take a sneaky peek:

I hope you can join us!

Tonight.  7pm Eastern.  Right here!

Now – on a different note.

When I started this Stampin’ Up! journey almost 5 years ago, I thought the best thing about it would be the fun tools and gadgets.  The beautiful paper and stamp sets.

I was wrong.

Now – don’t get me wrong – all of those things ARE most wonderful!

But – the VERY BEST part of this has been the people I’ve met – both in person and “virtually”.

And that blessing has been brought home to me in spades this last couple of days!  I’ve had a box full of happy mail each day!  Take a look at the wonderful birthday cards that have come to me this week!

This first one is a subscription to the Our Iowa magazine from my friend and teammate, Julie Johnson (guess where she’s from!)!  They’re right – I DO have some nice friends!  Julie has a great blog, by the way – give her a look-see over at Wild Wing Creations!

My friend – and upline/team leader extraordinaire – Amy Koenders (aka Stamp With Amy K) sent this beauty!

Karen Finkle, another good friend and teammate, created and sent…

Take a minute to check out Karen’s blog at Karen’s Card Corner!

My friend Donna sent a pretty card in pink and black!

Susan Heine sent a lovely card, too! 🙂

Kathy, from Nevada, a customer and – more importantly! – my friend! – sent this pretty floral card made with some Daisy Lane!

Faith SImpson sent this lovely bouquet!

And Barbara Simmons sent roses that will last forever!

Wow wow WOW!  I am truly blessed and fortunate to have so many wonderful friends around this country!  Thank you ALL so very much!

Hope I see you guys tonight! 🙂

STAMPIN’ TRIMMER CUTTING BLADES UPDATE

We have reevaluated our strategy for launching Stampin’ Trimmer Cutting Blades (item 126995) after the number of difficulties demonstrators and customers experienced during the South Pacific and European launches.

First, we have decided to reduce the limit on blades from six to three. We anticipate blades to sell out quickly, but hope more demonstrators and customers will be able to order with the smaller limit.

Second, we still plan to notify demonstrators through an update with the exact date and time the blades will become orderable (which will NOT be this week, as previously indicated). For this first launch in North America, we will send an email to anyone who requested a notification about when the blades would become available. For future launches, updates will be announced to Demonstrators ahead of time.

Third, we have made several internal system adjustments to avoid the issues we faced with previous launches in the South Pacific and Europe and are hopeful those errors will not be repeated.

Finally, there are different error messages you will see if trying to add the blades to an order before they become available and after they have sold out.

  • On the day of the launch, if you try to order the Stampin’ Trimmer Cutting Blades before they are available, you will see this error message: “You may not order 1 of item 126995 because of promotion restrictions.”
  • When the blades have sold out, the message will return to the current message until the next launch: “This item has been discontinued and cannot be added to your order (126995).”

We also want to remind you we are still working on a new trimmer option and hope to have more information to share in the coming months.

A quick note from me:  Stampin’ Up! did not provide a date and time when the blades will be available to order.  So keep an eye on my blog and newsletter and I’ll post those details as soon as we have them! But I wanted to post this update since many of you have been asking about the Trimmer Blades.

Stampin’ Up! Very Versailles for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hey y’all – it’s Thursday, so it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!!  Today’s Hop is a sketch challenge – and I’m excited to see what everyone comes up with –  I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop!

I pulled out a little linen-look Woven Threads DSP and the Very Versailles stamp set to create today’s vintage-y thank-you card.  Take a look-see:

And here’s our sketch!

I started with a piece of Woven Threads DSP – doesn’t it look like a piece of linen fabric??! – and stamped the wonderful script image from Very Versailles in Sahara Sand in two corners.  Over the top, I added the leaves image – one of the prettiest I’ve seen! – in Pretty Peacock.

Then I cut the middle out with a new Stitched Nested Labels Die.

On the cut-out piece, I used Versamark to stamp the frame image from Very Versailles.  Then I sprinkled it with Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed it.  I popped the piece back into its spot with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I punched out a Pretty Peacock 1 3/8″ Scallop Circle and adhered it over the embossed frame with Liquid Glue.

On another little piece of the same Woven Threads DSP, I stamped the sentiment in Pretty Peacock and cut it with my 1 1/8″ Scallop Circle Punch.  Then I popped it over the Pretty Peacock scalloped mat with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I used Glue Dots to adhere a couple of leaves from the Bird Ballad Trinkets and a Linen Thread double-loop bow – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I used more Woven Threads DSP for my inner panel, first stamping a second Very Versailles sentiment in Pretty Peacock.  I added the script image in stamped-off-once Sahara Sand and leaves in stamped-off-once Pretty Peacock.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Pretty Peacock mat and into my Sahara Sand card base, popped the card base on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got the stamped-off-once Sahara Sand script and stamped-off-once Pretty Peacock leaves on the front…

…and on the envelope flap I added more Woven Threads DSP and some leaves (yes – I really LOVE this image!)…

Et Voila!  Oh my goodness, y’all – how wonderful are the images in this Very Versailles stamp set??  And they’re perfectly perfect for adding to the beautiful papers in the Woven Threads DSP!  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Smooth Sailing Home For You!

Well.  Say it with me, now!  Happy Happy (I’m pointing the mic out at YOU!!!)…HHAWWWMP DAY!!!

I’ve got a simple little card (well – actually it’s a bit BIGger than usual!) for you today – using the Come Sail Away Memories & More Card Pack and the Sailing Home bundle.  Take a look-see:

For the color scheme, I played along with the cool Just Us Girls challenge this week.

Heck – I even used Blues as my color! 🙂

I started with one of the cool laser-die-cut panels in the Come Sail Away Memories & More Card Pack and used Liquid Glue around the edge to adhere it to a Whisper White cardstock panel for the card front.

I wrapped a length of new 3/8″ Denim Ribbon around the panel, securing it in the back with Glue Dots.

I used another – smaller – panel from the card pack and cut it down a little more.  Then I adhered a same-size piece of Night of Navy to the card front with Liquid Glue.  I popped the Memories & More card over top with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The sentiment, from the Sailing Home stamp set, is stamped in Night of Navy on Whisper White – then I cut it with the little banner die in the Smooth Sailing Die set.  I used Liquid Glue to adhere it to the sail boat panel.

I used a couple more dies to cut a Night of Navy wheel and a Balmy Blue rope.  I adhered them next to the card with Liquid Glue.  Then I popped a Sail Away Trinket (the anchor) on with a Glue Dot.

I tied a bow from the Denim Ribbon and adhered it with a Glue Dot.  And that finished off the card front.

On the inside, I stamped a second Sailing Home sentiment in Night of Navy on a Whisper White panel.  I placed both sailboat stamps on an acrylic block, inked them in Balmy Blue and stamped them once on scrap paper.  Without re-inking, I stamped them over top of the sentiment.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Whisper White mat and into my Night of Navy card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Large Memories & More Envelope got full-strength Balmy Blue sailboats on the front…

…and I added some Come Sail Away DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This Come Sail Away suite remains one of my favorite new products from the new catalog – how about you??  I just love the coordinating Sailing Home stamp set and bundled Smooth Sailing Dies and the perfect Come Sail Away DSP.  And the Come Sail Away Memories & More Card Pack?  Fug-et-aboutit!  I hope you like!

“A Morning in the Life of a Working Aussie.”

                                                                By Finn.

First – we clean the barn and spread the manure.  I help my Mom get around the place, making sure she doesn’t get losed.  Or accosted by a squirrel.  Or one of those danged BUGS!

Then, we stop to make sure the ponies have clean, fresh water, cuz it’s really hot right now and they like a good drink.

So do I!

Finally, once all our morning chores are done, we come back in the house.

The air conditioning feels really good – and it always makes me kind of sleepy.

So – I sleep!

This post is about a little dude (or dude-ette) that Finn would very much like to meet!

His Dad and I think it would be best if that never actually happened. 😉

This is Mom.

The pictures are blurry cuz they’re with my phone – thru a window (with us standing about 15 feet back from the window so she didn’t see us) and then clear across the pond.

She’s looking around cuz she’s watching her kid – who appears to have been overcome by…the ZOOMIES!

If I was a good photographer, I’d have hit the Video button.   But – all you’d have seen was a blur making giant circles around her.  It was definitely GAME ON!

Once the zoomies were over and he/she came back to mom to get a little snack I was able to get some pics of the little one.

So – here you go.

I’m pretty sure Mom knew we were watching her – she kept staring across the pond right into the window!  I don’t know how she knew – I mean we were even whispering to each other! 😉

Nature.  Too stinkin’ cute!  I LOVE that the moms feel safe enough to have – and raise! – their kids here.  And let us watch them play!

Stampin’ Up! Just Hatched Dino Days

Merry Monday, my peeps!  Back at it, heh?  Hope your week goes well and with little stress!

For some reason, I’ve been unusually drawn to stamp sets and bundles in the new catalog that seem to be oriented towards kids and babies.  That’s not my usual, but…there’ve been several that really made me smile – and buy them!

One such bundle is the cute Dino Days stamp set – bundled with the Dino Dies – and the coordinating Dinoroar DSP.  So I pulled that out for today’s sweet little new baby card.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one was – maybe loosely? – inspired by this week’s TGIF Challenge.

And the color scheme is from this week’s Color Throwdown.

I started with one of my fave papers from the Dinoroar DSP and matted it on Mango Melody for the card front.  I used a small panel of Whisper White for the art panel.

I stamped the too-cute Dino Days dino-dude in Mango Melody and gave him some Pretty Peacock spines.  Underneath him, I stamped some fronds in Pretty Peacock – stamping a couple of times without re-inking.  That let me have “different” colors without using “different” colors! 🙂

I matted the panel on Mango Melody and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

To make the egg, I cut two of the dies from the Dino Dies in Whisper White.  I added some little circles in Pineapple Punch – then I used a Sponge Dauber to sponge on some Mango Melody (I got this idea from the samples in the catalog!).

On one egg shell, I stamped the Dino Days sentiment in Lovely Lipstick.  I popped that one on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added the second shell with Stampin’ Dimensionals – then added a Dinoroar Enamel Shape – sort of like a hinge.  And that was it for the card front!

On the inside, I stamped a second (and my favorite!!) sentiment from Dino Days in Lovely Lipstick on a Whisper White panel.  Over top I added a Mango Melody Dino-guy with stamped-off-once Pretty Peacock spines.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Mango Melody mat and into a Pineapple Punch card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another Mango Melody and Pretty Peacock dino-person on the front…

…and I used a little more of that totes-adorbs Dinoroar DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I’m guessing that you can see why this Dino Days stamp set and matching Dino Dies appeals to me?  Oh – did I mention that several of the dies cut out images on the Dinoroar DSP?  I didn’t?  Well – they DO! 😉  I hope you like!

Yesterday, we went to have Father’s Day with our friends.  As is the norm, I was tasked with deviled eggs and dessert.

Fortunately, I had a sous chef…

He tried to convince me that the sous chef gets to lick the beater…

And THEN he tried to convince me that eggs are good for dogs…

He’s pretty persuasive, really.  Also…persistent! 😉

Okay – confession time.  I put the bowl down on the floor after I’d pulled out all the egg filling!

As I’ve said – I’m not a MONSTER!!

Stampin’ Up! Parcels & Petals Gift Box Video Tutorial

Hey guys!  Happy Sunday – and happy Father’s Day to all the Dad’s out there!  I hope you don’t get a tie today.

Unless you WANT a tie – then I totally hope that’s what you get!

So – if y’all were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video, I appreciate you spending part of your weekend with me!  If not – you’ll probably want to watch this video!

In the video, I’m going to show how to make the cute little gift box with the dies in the new Perfect Parcels Die set – which is bundled with the Parcels & Petals stamp set in the new catalog!

I made a couple three little boxes with the die set – you can see all of them in the video! – but they all have a belly band created with the gorgeous new Pressed Petals Specialty DSP!

The box itself is made with some card stock – in this case Night of Navy.

And then the belly band is a simple 3 1/4″ x 8″ piece of Designer paper – in this case…Pressed Petals!

I wrapped some Scalloped Linen Ribbon around the box and then tied a “faux bow”.  In the video, be sure to watch how I tied the bow – I give you a tip for tying faux bows with ribbon that has two different sides!

Finally, I made a little tag with the Delightful Tag Topper and Detailed Trio Punches.  I used So Saffron – and stamped the flowers from Parcels & Petals (the sample you see above in Night of Navy – the ones in the video in Rococo Rose).

The sentiment is from Parcels & Petals and cut with the die in Perfect Parcels.

 

Et Voila!  It’s a pretty easy little box to make using the dies and stamps in the Parcels & Petals Bundle – especially after you see it done!  So…watch the video and you’ll be on your way!  I hope you like!

So…even with the scissoring and the thinning…when the Man decides to swim…sigh.

That’s not easy to dry, people.  And he never – EVER – wants to stay OUTSIDE after he’s had a dip.  He wants to come into the A/C with the family (specifically with the Mom).

Who am I to deny that face?

What lurks in these depths?

It’s not very scary.

But… it IS a little deaf.

And – it is VERY much NOT impressed by Finn!

Nor by my attempts to take her picture.

That looks like eyes.

It is NOT eyes.

It’s head – upside down – and…ears.  And…forehead?

Really.

Stampin’ Up! We’ll Walrus Be Friends Birthday!

Hey y’all!  Happy Friday!  Just make it thru the day and it’ll be the weekend!  And Father’s Day!! 🙂

So – I really ought to have a Father’s Day card to share with you – but…instead…birthday!  Using a so-cute little set called We’ll Walrus Be Friends.  Which – you can get in my Special Bundle #5 – Wild & Wiggly!  And the High Seas 3D Embossing Folder.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one comes from this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

I started by embossing a Thick Whisper White panel in the new High Seas 3D Embossing Folder and matting it on Pool Party card stock for the card front.

I took the same folder and swiped the embossing side with my Seaside Spray ink pad, then I embossed a piece of Thick Whisper White card stock.  That created a sort of icy-looking sea, don’t you think?  I cut the panel down to size, matted it on Pool Party and then adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I stamped the We’ll Walrus Be Friends image on a piece of Whisper White and Vellum card stock in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the walrus using my Light and Dark Gray Granite Stampin’ Blends.  His muzzle uses the Ivory Blend with the Light Gray Granite Blend laid over the top.

On the Whisper White image, I used my Balmy Blue Light and Dark Blends to color the water.  I used the same blends to color the back of the vellum water image.  And I used my Light and Dark Pool Party Blends on the back of the iceberg part of the vellum image.

I fussy cut the entire Whisper White image and just the iceberg and water of the Vellum image – then used Glue Dots to adhere the Vellum over the Whisper White image.  Then I popped the whole thing onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped sentiments from We’ll Walrus Be Friends on Pool Party,. Balmy Blue and Seaside Spray card stocks (I used a Sticky Note to mask off “hi” on the middle sentiment!), then cut them with the Classic Label Punch.  I edged each sentiment with my Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker and popped them all on with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a few Noble Peacock Rhinestones and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added another We’ll Walrus Be Friends sentiment and a couple more fun images in Tuxedo Black to a Whisper White panel.  I used my Light and Dark Gray Granite, Balmy Blue and Pool Party Blends, plus the Ivory Blend, to color the images.  I added another Noble Peacock Rhinestone, too.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Pool Party mat and into my Seaside Spray card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimemsionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more fishies on the front…

…and another Walrus on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  How.  Cute.  Is.  This.  Stamp set?!?  I mean…seriously.  We’ll Walrus Be Friends – another one you may have missed in the new catalog!  I do hope you’ll check it out – heck – get it with some other fun goodies in my Special Bundle #5 Wild & Wiggly and save a little green.  And – you can pick up the High Seas 3D Embossing Folder for FREE when you purchase Special Bundle # 6: Let’s Hear It For The Boys!  I hope you like!

P.S.  Time is running out on the Special Bundles – today and tomorrow and then…poof!  Gone!  Don’t miss out!

The new 3D Embossing Folder Plate (item 149658) is now available to order! It’s designed to work with our new-style 3D embossing folders (which are thinner than our old-style Dynamic folders).

You can click on the picture above and open the flyer – then print it and keep it by your embossing machine and new 3D Embossing Folder Plate.  It’s got your new “sandwich” information right on it!

Remember that carryover 3D embossing folders will not be available to order at the start of the new catalog but I’ll let you know when they’re available to order.

Also keep in mind that we expect to receive staggered plate shipments in all markets during June and July as we build inventory. Which means, you may experience periods of time when it is unavailable to order if inventory is depleted; it will become available to order again when inventory is replenished.

How to Use the New Plate

The new plate makes up the difference in measurement between our old-style Dynamic Folders and our new-style 3D Folders in most die-cutting machines. The 3D Embossing Folder Plate replaces the Standard Cutting Pads in your 3D embossing folder sandwich for continued high-quality emboss results.

To create your emboss sandwich:

  • Use a die-cutting & embossing machine platform as a base; no matter which machine you’re using, use the standard platform which comes with your machine.
  • Use the 3D Embossing Folder with your paper in the middle.
  • Then use the 3D Embossing Folder Plate on top.

Given the differences in machines and platforms, you may still have to add a shim to get your desired embossing results. (You can also spritz your paper before embossing to maximize your embossed impressions.)

Without the new 3D Embossing Folder Plate, you will need to use several shims with the Standard Cutting Pad in your 3D embossing folder sandwich, depending on the die-cutting & embossing machine you use. Most machines will need between three to five sheets of cardstock to shim. Please be careful in how you shim; start out with fewer sheets first, then add sheets to get your desired results.  Stampin’ Up! won’t be responsible for replacing products broken due to using a sandwich which is too thick for a machine.

I’ve been working on the pantaloonies.

Hmmm – dog grooming maybe isn’t a viable third career for me, huh?  😉
