Stampin’ Up! Many Mates Sneak Peek with Video Tutorial for The Paper Players

Hey y’all – it’s Sunday, which means I’ve got another fun challenge for you from the Paper Players – it’s a sketch challenge from our lovely LeAnne this week and it’ll for sure jump-start your creative mojo!  I hope you’ll come and play along.  🙂

If you were able to join me yesterday for my Facebook Live video, I appreciate you spending some of your weekend with me!  If you weren’t able to watch the live version, but you’d like to see the replay on YouTube…here ’tis!

I pulled out the new Many Mates stamp set, with it’s bundled Many Medallions Die set (coming on 3 June!), plus a little of the new Forever Greenery DSP for this one!  And – some new Brass Foil became the focal point.  Take a look-see:

And here’s this week’s Paper Players theme challenge!  Hope you’ll join the fun and show us your projects!  I can’t wait to see what you create!  🙂

I started with a piece of Just Jade card stock – one of the wunnermus new 2020-2022 In Colors! – and embossed it in the new Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder.  Then I cut it to be the same size as the front of my Just Jade card base and adhered it with Liquid Glue.

Next up is a piece of Forever Greenery DSP, double matted on Pretty Peacock and Melon Mambo – and adhered to the card front with Liquid Glue.

Using the big, bold die in the Many Medallions Die Set, I cut a Brass Foil piece.  Then I used my Paper Snips to trim the panel down to fit and adhered it with Liquid Glue.

I stamped the Many Mates sentiment in Melon Mambo on a strip of Whisper White, then used the new Lovely Labels Pick a Punch (new in the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog) to cut each end.

I tied a simple bow from a length of 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim and adhered it with a Glue Dot.  Then I popped the sentiment over the top with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

A couple of Just Jade dots from the 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dots pack finished off the card front!

On the inside, I added a second sentiment from Many Mates in Melon Mambo to a Whisper White panel.  I added a Pretty Peacok-matted strip of Forever Greenery DSP across the bottom – and some of the trimmed Brass Foil die cut, as well.  A single Just Jade Enamel dot finished it off.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Pretty Peacock and a Melon Mambo mat and then into the Just Jade card base and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got a few words from Many Mates in Melon Mambo on the front…

…and more of the Forever Greenery DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This Many Mates set is absolutely filled with fun and useful sentiments – and the bundled Many Medallions offers some great textural accents for your projects!

I hope you like – and are adding this one to your gotta-have-it list!

And I can help you get this stamp set – either now as a new demonstrator (yes, you can select pre-order goodies for your Starter Kit!!) or after 3 June (consider an Online Host Club!!) or my Sentiments Rule Special Bundle!

Finn Fan Fix

Wayne put a stick on the dog the other day.

Wait – that might have been me.

I put a stick on the dog the other day.


I think I said something like – hey Finny, wanna get this stick?

And he indicated he did not by just ignoring me completely.

So – I put the stick on him.

Figured he’d shake it off real quick.

I figured wrong.

I dunno – maybe he wants to be one of those wagon-pulling dogs?

Or…could just be that…he’s a smidge goofy!

But – makes for cute pictures, huh??
