Stampin’ Up! Video Sneak Peek and Stamps-N-Lingers 2020 Mini Catalog Shares are Open!

Good morning!  Welcome to….18 Days Before Christmas.

Oh good golly!  Whaaaa??!

So – in a continuing effort to bury my head in the sand and pretend I’m further ahead than I really am – let’s do a video tonight, shall we?  We’ll get together at 7pm on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page and do a fun gift box that you can use all that pretty Designer Series Paper on to make your Holiday (and all-year!) gifting gorgeous!  Take a sneaky peek!

Tonight.  7pm Eastern.  Right here!

Hope to see you there!

Now.  Onward!  Most of you have – or will have soon! – the new 2020 Jan – Jun Mini Catalog and have seen the beautiful papers and embellishments to be had!

And – I know you’ve been anxiously awaiting word on my Catalog Shares – and…here ’tis!

If you do NOT know what a “catalog share” is – it’s….sort of like your first run thru a Cruise Ship buffet.  There’s a TON to choose from – so you try a little dab of everything!  Then you know what to go back to for a second helping. 🙂

In the same vein – a catalog share gives you a chance to try a sample of all the new products in the catalog – and then you can see what you love and go back and purchase full packs of those goodies!

So – you can try a little bit of the beautiful new Designer Series Papers, specialty papers and envelopes, plus fun embellishments with one of my Catalog Shares! I’ll place our Shares order first jump out of the box on 3 Jan 20 and use expedited shipping so I get it back fast!  Then I’ll get it all cut up, packaged and out the door quick as I can – as early in the week of the 6th as I can manage!

Once again, I’m offering a Designer Series Paper share and an Embellishment share with all sorts of fun new goodies!

I am both ahead and behind.

We have a tree…

…but no ornaments on it yet.

Finn-y likes to sleep by the lights in the mornings while I walk!!

If I was a single girl – I’d put the tree in my bedroom so that I, too, could sleep with the Christmas lights!  I LOVE them – but they’d keep Wayne awake, so…

Question….are you a White-Lights person or a Colored-Lights person?!? 😉

Stampin’ Up! Golden Honey Bee Sneak Peek!

Good morning!  It.  Is.  FRIDAY!! Whoo-hoo!!

AND – all my catalogs are stickered and stuffed and sent!  Double Whooo-hooo!! 🙂

I’ve got a cute little 2020 Jan-Jun Mini Catalog and 2020 Sale-A-Bration Flyer sneak peek for you today.  This set is one I wanted the INSTANT I saw it in the catalog – it’s the Honey Bee Bundle – with the Detailed Bee Dies.  AND – there’s awesome Golden Honey Bee Specialty DSP in the Sale-A-Bration flyer – which means…FREE DESIGNER SERIES PAPER!!  Yikes!!  Take a look-see:

The layout – and a few elements (if you look close, you’ll see what I mean!) in this one – are from this week’s FUSION challenge.

And the color scheme is from the Color Throwdown challenge.

I started with some of the beautiful gold-foil-accented Golden Honey Specialty DSP that I matted on Bermuda Bay for the card front.

On a smaller rectangle of Whisper White, I used my Stamparatus to stamp the curved sentiment from the Honey Bee stamp set (coming on 4 Jan 20!) in Bermuda Bay.  Then I cut out the beehive shape, using the die in the bundled Detailed Bee Die Set.

I used the honeycomb die from the set and cut a couple from a piece of Gold Glimmer Paper.

I used a piece of Daffodil Delight paper from the new Birthday Bonanza DSP (also coming on 4 Jan 20!) behind the beehive.  I adhered the Gold Glimmer honeycomb with Liquid Glue.  Then I adhered the Whisper White panel over top with more Liquid Glue.

On scrap Whisper White, I stamped the large bee and two small bees in Tuxedo Black -and cut them out with their matching die from the Detailed Bee Die set.

Yes – you heard me.  Dies.  That.  Cut.  Bees.

Whaaaaa!??!  How AWESOME is that?!? 🙂

Answer: VERY freakin’ awesome!

I colored their bodies with my Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Write Marker and the wings with my Light Pool Party Stampin’ Blend.  I brushed Clear Wink of Stella over the wings, too.

I used the marker-to-rubber technique to color the two flower images – Pear Pizzazz for the stems and leaves and Daffodil Delight for the flowers.  This technique is made SO much easier with the Stamparatus – it means you can stamp over the image as many times as you need!  I cut the flowers with their matching dies.  And some Gold Glimmer hearts, too!

I adhered the flowers and hearts and the right-most little bee with Liquid Glue.  Then I added the second small bee and the large guy with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added some Pear Pizzazz “faux stitches” with my Stampin’ Write Marker and the card was done!

On the inside, I added a stamped-off-once Daffodil Delight beehive from the Honey Bee set in the center of a Whisper White panel.   Over top, I added a second sentiment in Bermuda Bay.  Then I added a single flower – once again using the marker-to-rubber technique.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Bermuda Bay mat and into my Pear Pizzazz card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got a full-strength Daffodil Delight beehive on the front – plus a couple of little Tuxedo Black bees…

…and some more of the Golden Honey Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  You guys – I was TOTALLY right to covet this set when I saw it!  The Honey Bee stamp set is adorable – and the bundled Detailed Bee Dies cut.  Out.  BEES!  Like…bee-legs.  And bee-antenna.  NO fussy cutting!  Whoo-hoo!!  Add in the Golden Honey Specialty DSP (that you’ll be able to pick up for free during Sale-A-Bration with a $50 order before shipping and tax!  I hope you LIKE – add this one to your Wish List as soon as your catalog arrives.  It’s on page 30.  Just sayin’! 😉

Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Plaid Peaceful Boughs 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 a sketch challenge – and I’m excited to see what everyone brings to the table!  I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop today!

I decided to go All-Favorites-All-The-Time today, so….I’ve got Beautiful Boughs on Wrapped in Plaid DSP with Peaceful Boughs sentiments! Self-indulgent?  Maybe.  Take a look-see!

And…here’s our sketch! 🙂

I started with some predominantly Night of Navy paper from the Wrapped in Plaid 6″ x 6″ DSP that I matted on Night of Navy for the card front.

I used a little strip of SNAIL to secure some Gold 1/4″ Shimmer Ribbon, then adhered it on the back with Glue Dots.

For the art panel, I first stamped the medium size boughs image from Peaceful Boughs in Shaded Spruce.  I stamped the image off once on scrap paper and stamped the art panel twice without re-inking.  I added some splatter in stamped-off-once Night of Navy – again stamping twice without re-inking.  Then I matted it on Night of Navy and popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut each of the boughs dies in the Beautiful Boughs Die set in Shaded Spruce, each size of the detailed pine cone in Early Espresso and each size of the solid pine cone in Gold Glimmer Paper.  These I adhered together with Liquid Glue to create the layered pine cones.

I stamped a sentiment from the Peaceful Boughs set in Night of Navy on Whisper White and cut it out with the smaller label die in Beautiful Boughs.

Finally – I cut three berry cuts from Gold Glimmer Paper using the die in the Frosted Bouquet Dies.

I arranged all the boughs and berries and pine cones and sentiment – looking for the just-right “there it is” moment.  Once I got it – I pulled the sentiment off and took a picture.  Then I started layering everything with Liquid Glue.

The last piece was to adhere the sentiment on top with Stampin’ Dimensionals and Liquid Glue.

I added some Holiday Rhinestones in Cherry Cobbler around the pine boughs and a Shaded Spruce gem on the sentiment and the card front was done.

On the inside, I used my Stamparatus to add a second sentiment from Peaceful Boughs in Night of Navy.  In the corners, I stamped the pine boughs in Shaded Spruce that I stamped off once before stamping the panel then stamped it again without re-inking.  I also added the splatters in Night of Navy in the same manner (stamped off once then stamped twice without re-inking).  A few Holiday Rhinestones in Cherry Cobbler and Shaded Spruce finished it off.

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Peaceful Boughs boughs and splatters on the front…

… and a little more of that Wrapped in Plaid DSP on the envelope flap!

Et Voila!  Seriously – is it any wonder these are some of my favorite things?  And – the Peaceful Boughs and Beautiful Boughs are CARRYING over!  Whoo-hoo!  Know what is NOT?  THe Bundle pricing, is what!  That’s right – once the Holiday catalog goes away – so does that 10% savings.  So….get it now!  AND – the Wrapped in Plaid DSP is NOT carrying over, soooo – you know what you need to do!  I hope you like!

Now that you’ve seen my card, take a minute to hop thru all our projects today  If you click on the Next Blog button, you’ll go right to Kristi’s page. And you can just click on the names below to go direct to all the blogs!

Stampin’ Up! Perfectly Wrapped in Plaid Ho Ho Ho!

Morning, y’all!  Are you checking out the Year-End-Closeout bargains and determining which of the Retiring and Discontinuing goodies you need to add to your stash before they’re gone?  I hope so – don’t be risking losing them forever! 🙂

My card today uses a stamp set and punch that IS carrying over – the Perfectly Plaid Bundle with its Pine Tree Punch!  But – when next you see it – it will NOT be a bundle – and you will NOT be able to save 10% on the purchase price.  So…if you don’t have it yet…get it before the end of the Holiday catalog!

I mean – unless you LIKE spending extra money??

No?

Didn’t think so!

I used the bundle and combined it with the seriously gorgeous Wrapped in Plaid DSP.  Which is NOT carrying over – which means you MUST get it before 2 Jan (or before it sells out!).  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from this week’s Global Design Project sketch challenge.

And the Christmas-y colors are from the CAS Colours & Sketches color challenge!

I started with some Cherry Cobbler paper from the Wrapped in Plaid 6″ x 6″ DSP that I matted on Gold Foil for the card front.

Using SNAIL – I laid down a length of Shaded Spruce/Gold 3/8″ Striped Ribbon, that I secured in the back with Glue Dots.

I cut two Stitched Shapes squares from a piece of Whisper White – and two Gold Foil scalloped squares using the Layering Squares Dies.  I adhered them together with Liquid Glue – then adhered them to the card front.

I punched a Pine Tree Punch shape from two different – but similar! – designs in the Wrapped in Plaid 6″ x 6″ DSP.  Then I popped them both on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the Perfectly Plaid sentiment in Versamark Ink on a piece of Cherry Cobbler card stock and sprinkled it with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  Then I heat embossed it with my Heat Tool.

I cut the sentiment with a Stitched Rectangle Die and used Liquid Glue and a single Dimensional in the center to adhere it over the Pine Trees.

I added a few Shaded Spruce gems from the Noble Peacock Rhinestones and the card front was done.

On the inside, I used my Stamparatus to add a Cherry Cobbler plaid tree from Perfectly Plaid in the middle of a Whisper White panel.  When it was good and dry, I inked the second sentiment from Perfectly Plaid in Versamark and stamped it over top.  I heat embossed it in Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  Then I added a single Shaded Spruce Noble Peacock Rhinestone.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Gold Foil mat and into my Shaded Spruce card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another Cherry Cobbler plaid tree on the front…

…and one of the pretty plaids on the envelope flap!

Et Voila!  This Perfectly Plaid bundle – with a Pine Tree Punch (loves me a good punch!) is absolutely one of my favorite things and I am SO happy that it’s carrying over!  I hope you’ve already got it – but if you don’t – be sure to pick it up with the 10% bundle price.  And do NOT miss getting a goodly supply of the gorgeous Wrapped in Plaid 6″ x 6″ DSP before it is GONE, Baby, GONE!  I hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix


Finn took a little limelight-break today!

He allowed me to share a couple of sweet photos with you of a tiny human and one of my favorite people!

You guys might recall that a few weeks back I put together the super cool Countdown to Christmas Project Kit (which – OBTW – we’ll see again next Fall – YEAH!!!)?  And we talked about what kinds of things to put in a 2″ x 2″ box that was suitable for a 1+ year old.

Well – I got it pulled off.  I DID do some boxes for mom and dad – seemed fair!

So…yesterday I got some photos of young Nehemiah Walsh and his first Countdown to Christmas calendar!

Behold!

Seriously?  Is he not adorable??!

And – he comes by his ginger-ness quite honestly.  Here he is with his Dad (the aforementioned one-of-my favorite people!).

So…given the smiles and the fact that Jenna told me she’d been looking for a calendar and that this one is “perfect” – I’m going to take them at their word and stick this one in the WIN column!

AND – it’s easy-peasy to put together?!?  Score!

Stampin’ Up! Get the Best Dressed Lady Bug Back on Her Feet, Year-End Closeout and Last Day for Free Shipping!

Happy Tuesday!  Happy End-of-Year Clearance!  This is the time of year to save on your favorite goodies!  And you can see which of your favorite goodies will be available to you in future catalogs, too!

My card for today, though – looks forward to the 2020 Jan-Jun Mini Catalog and the Sale-A-Bration goodies!  In this year’s SAB (that’s demo-speak for Sale-A-Bration!) – there’s a special little stamp set going to be available to you.  It’s called Little Ladybug and it’s a set that you’ll get FREE with a $300 workshop or individual order during SAB!  That will be in ADDITION to the SAB goodies that you’ll earn based on your purchase amount.  How cool is that??

I combined this totes-adorbs FREE Host set with some pretty Best Dressed 6″ x 6″ DSP (coming on 4 Jan in the 2020 Jan-Jun Mini catalog) and a cute little sentiment from the Back On Your Feet set (in the Annual Catalog).  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from the FabFriday sketch challenge this week!

And I played along with the Just Us Girls Wild Card Week challenge, too!

I started with a Daffodil Delight piece of paper from the new Best Dressed 6″ x 6″ DSP – its the same size as the front of my Daffodil Delight card base.  I adhered the panel to the card front with Liquid Glue.

Next up is a different piece of the paper – this one in a beautiful floral – that I matted on Petal Pink and then popped onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut a strip of yet another design in the DSP, bannerized the end with my Paper Snips and adhered it with Liquid Glue.

The sentiment, from Little Ladybug, is stamped on the Daffodil Delight DSP in Lovely Lipstick.  Then I snipped a banner end in that and adhered it with Liquid Glue.

On a piece of Whisper White, I stamped the large flower and one of the ladybugs in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the flower with my Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends Combo and the leaves with Light Old Olive and Light Mint Macaron Blends.  The ladybug uses my Lovely Lipstick and Smokey Slate Blends Combos and my Light Petal Pink (for her face).  I brushed some Clear Wink of Stella over her wings for a little shine.

Then I fussy cut the flower and ladybug!

I adhered the flower first – with a Stampin’ Dimensional and some Liquid Glue – then added Lady Bug over top with Liquid Glue.

A few Old Olive gems from the Noble Peacock Rhinestones – on the sentiment banner and around the flower – finished off the card front!

On the inside, I added a sentiment from the Back On Your Feet stamp set in Lovely Lipstick on a Whisper White panel.  Underneath, I stamped the cute little line of ladybugs in Tuxedo Black and colored them with my Light Lovely Lipstick, Smoky Slate and Petal Pink Blends.  Then I popped on another Noble Peacock gem.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Petal Pink mat and into my Daffodil Delight card base and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got Little Ladybug ladybugs all across the bottom…

…and more of the gorgeous Best Dressed 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap!

Et Voila.  This Little Ladybug set is SERIOUSLY CUTE, yes?  And how HANDY that it will be FREE!  I am also so loving the Best Dressed 6″ x 6″ DSP – gorgeous colors and patterns (floral and geometric!) – it’s going to be a winner and it’s part of a beautiful Suite of goodies!!  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Painted Moments and Poppies Sneak Peek and Year-End Closeout Sale!

Happy Monday!  Day 2 of December – the countdown to Christmas is TRULY on, isn’t it?!?

Today is Cyber Monday – and…I’ve still got my Free Shipping special going on.  But – I’ve decided to EXTEND it one day so you guys can all hit the End of Year Clearance Sale that starts tomorrow!  All the deets are down below – so…ENJOY and happy shopping and saving! 🙂

My card today is another sneak peek of one of my favorite new Suites in the 2020 Jan – Jun Mini Catalog – the Peaceful Poppies Suite!  I used the Painted Poppies and bundled Painted Labels dies and the Peaceful Moments stamp set – plus some of the gorgeous Peaceful Poppies DSP.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one was inspired by the Freshly Made Sketches challenge this week!

I started with some poppy-strewn paper from the Peaceful Poppies DSP that I matted on Old Olive for the card front.

The art panel is a smaller piece of Whisper White.  I used my Stamparatus to stamp the Painted Poppies image in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.

I used my Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush to pick up ink from the lid of my Poppy Parade ink pad and colored the poppies.

Around the field of poppies, I added the small splatter image from Painted Poppies in stamped-off-TWICE Flirty Flamingo.

I matted the panel on Old Olive and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I wrapped some new Whisper White 1/4″ Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon (coming on 4 Jan 20) around the card front – securing it in the back with Glue Dots.

For the sentiment, I stamped the Peaceful Moments sentiment in Old Olive on Whisper White and cut it with the die in the Painted Labels Die set.  I popped it over the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I wrapped another piece of the Whisper White 1/4″ Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon around the first piece – next to the sentiment – and tied a bow.

I stuck a little flower-shaped sequin from the new Peaceful Poppies Sequins onto the sentiment with Liquid Glue.  Then I added a small Rhinestone Basic Jewel in the middle.  And that was it for the card front!

On the inside, I added a second Peaceful Moments sentiment in Old Olive to a Whisper White panel.  Then I used my Stamparatus to add a second Painted Poppies flower image in Tuxedo Black.  I painted the image with my Clear Wink brush – using Poppy Parade and Old Olive inks.  A Peaceful Poppies Sequin and Rhinestone added a little sparkle.  Finally – I added the splatter image again in stamped-off-TWICE Flirty Flamingo all around the sides.

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got the Painted Poppies flower and splatters on the front…

…and more of that Peaceful Poppies DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I am a little gobsmacked every time I see this Peaceful Poppies DSP, aren’t you?  It is just so darned beautiful – with its vibrant colors and gorgeous poppies strewn all about!  And the Painted Poppies and Peaceful Moments bundles – the “anchors” of the Suite – are the absolutely perfect accompaniments to it, don’t you think?  I hope you like!  Come on 4 Jan!! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Happy Breathtaking Bouquet Birthday To You Sneak Peek

Good morning, y’all!  Happy DECEMBER!!  Hope your weekend is going well – and if you’re one of the trillion people getting on the road (or in the air) today to head home – BE SAFE!!

If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video, I appreciate you spending part of your Holiday Weekend with me!  If not, but you’d like to see the not-so-instant replay, here you go!

I saw this technique done by Jenny Hall, on a Splitcoast Stampers Wednesday tutorial, and thought it was really cool.  And also easy!  So…I used it to give you a Sneak Peek of a couple of new stamp sets in the 2020 Jan – Jun Mini Catalog and 2020 Sale-A-Bration catalogs.  I used the Breathtaking Bouquet background stamp (in the Mini Catalog) and the Happy Birthday to You stamp set (which will be FREE with a $50 purchase during Sale-A-Bration).  Take a look-see:

My color palette is from the Global Design Project challenge this week!

And it plays well with the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge!

Let me start by saying that the Stamparatus is a KEY player on this card – so…if you do NOT have one…I strongly urge you to get one now!  Especially given that you could get FREE SHIPPING from me… 😉

I started by placing a piece of Flirty Flamingo card stock into my Stamparatus and stamping the big and gorgeous Breathtaking Bouquet Background image on it in Crumb Cake Ink.

Then I placed an equal-size piece of Whisper White in the exact same spot and stamped IT in Crumb Cake.

Then I cut both panels down to 3 3/4″ x 5″.

I cut the Flirty Flamingo panel at 3 1/2″ from the top (along the long side).  Then I trimmed one inch off the bottom piece – making sure I cut the ALREADY CUT edge (I did not cut from the Bottom – but from the middle.  Watch the video to help make sense of that!).  I saved that 1″ piece!

I stuck the panels back into my Stamparatus and dry fit the two Flirty Flamingo pieces atop the Whisper White piece.  Then I arranged my sentiment from the Sale-A-Bration set Happy Birthday to You in the gap.  I removed the Flirty Flamingo pieces and stamped the sentiment several times in Mossy Meadow to get it as dark as I wanted it.

I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Mossy Meadow mat with Liquid Glue, then used Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the two flirty Flamingo pieces in place.  All that stamping means…the image continues perfectly right across the gap!

I added a Linen Thread double-loop bow with a Glue Dot and a simple bow from Mossy Meadow Linen Thread (Magnolia Lane Ribbon Combo Pack) with a dab of Liquid Glue.  A single Rhinestone Basic Jewel by the sentiment and a couple under the bows finished off the card front!

On the inside, I added a second sentiment from Happy Birthday to You in Mossy Meadow on a Whisper White cardstock panel.  Across the bottom I adhered the 1″ piece from the front – matted on Mossy Meadow.  Then I surrounded the sentiment with some Crumb Cake dots from the Happy Birthday to You set.

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another sentiment from Happy Birthday to You in Mossy Meadow – and some Crumb Cake dots – on the front…

…and a piece of Flirty Flamingo paper from the Brights 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  How gorgeous is this stamp?  Breathtaking Bouquet is SUCH an accurate name – it is just stunning!  And this simple technique shows it off to perfection – and lets the Happy Birthday to You sentiment take center stage!  I hope you like!  And…how long is that wish list getting, anyway?!?  The 2020 Jan – Jun Mini Catalog and SALE-A-BRATION will be here before you know it!
