Stampin’ Up! Poinsettias & Pinecones Christmas Card

Happy Happy Hawwwmp Day!  Hope you’re week is going well!  And hope that you’re excited about doing a Christmas card-making party with me on the 17th, using the Wonder of the Season Memories & More Card Packs!!  Check it out above on the Wonder of the Season Flash Sale Party page – you’ve only got until Friday to get signed up!

My card today uses the spectacular Poinsettia Place DSP (on sale right now!!) plus the coordinating Poinsettia Petals stamp set and bundled Poinsettia Dies!  Take a look-see:

How gorgeous is that flower??!

The layout for this one is from the Inspire.Create inspiration Challenge this week!

I started with a small piece of the pinecone-strewn paper from the Poinsettia Place DSP that I adhered to a mat-sized piece of Early Espresso for the card front.

From Very Vanilla, I cut a bunch of flower petals from the Poinsettia Dies: 2 large, 1 medium, 1 small and 1 teensy.  Tip: on the two-piece dies (one piece cuts the shape and the other embosses the veining) – run the card stock thru your cutting machine with both dies in place.  Then carefully remove just the cutting die and run it back thru with the embossing die still in place.  That will give you a really nice emboss!!

I adhered all the flower pieces together with Liquid Glue.

Next, I stamped the berries outline image from Poinsettia Petals three times in Early Espresso on Very Vanilla.  I used the fill-image in Cherry Cobbler – then cut them all out with the matching die in the Poinsettia Dies.

I cut three Mossy Meadow berries (have I mentioned this is one of my favorite dies EVER?!?).

To build the collage, I used a little Stampin’ Seal to adhere a length of Old Olive ribbon from the Ornate Garden Ribbon Combo Pack.

Then I added berries – both kinds! – under and around the ribbon with Liquid Glue.

On a 3/4″ wide piece of Very Vanilla, I stamped the Poinsettia Petals sentiment in Cherry Cobbler.  Then I cut the ends with the Banners Pick a Punch.  I edged the strip with my Early Espresso Stampin’ Write Marker and adhered it to the card front – using a Stampin’ Dimensional under the left end and Liquid Glue on the flower.

I added some Cherry Cobbler rhinestones from the Holiday Rhinestone pack and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped a second Poinsettia Petals sentiment in Cherry Cobbler on a Very Vanilla panel.  I also added some Early Espresso and Cherry Cobbler berries.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to an Early Espresso mat and into my Cherry Cobbler card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got more berries on the front…

…and more of the Poinsettia Place DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I think it goes without saying – but…I’m going to say it anyway!….that this Poinsettia Place Suite – anchored by Poinsettia Petals and the Poinsettia Dies – is going to go down as one of the favorite Stampin’ Up! sets of all time!  What say you?

And – the fact that you can get the Poinsettia Place DSP for 15% off?  Yes, please!

I hope you like LOVE!

Stampin’ Up! Wishes & Wonder of the Season Memories & More Christmas Cards and a Special Offer!

Good morning.  I have a fun something-new for you today!!  You have to read on to find out what it is! 😉

First, though – I have a number for you:

52.

Do you know what that number represents?

How about if I said….7 weeks and 3 days?

No?  How about…that’s the USPS Deadline (18 Dec) – for mailing in the CONUS (ie: the US – but not to/from Hawaii/Alaska) for First Class mail to “guarantee” arrival by Christmas.

Which means – you might have just started to hyperventilate a smidge when you think about getting your Christmas cards done and in the mail!

Well – I’ve got a bit of a stress-reducing solution for you today!  And a chance to spend a few hours crafting with me!  Read on!

The Wonder of the Season Memories & More Card Pack – coupled with the Wonder of the Season Memories & More Cards & Envelopes – are the answer!  I used them – and a couple of sentiments and images from the Wishes & Wonder and Cherish the Season stamp sets to whip out a stack of gorgeous Christmas cards.  Take a look-see:

The Memories & More Card Pack lets you make a big ole stack of Christmas cards lickety-split.  Adhere the large – or small! – cards to each of the card fronts with a little adhesive – stamp a sentiment on the inside and maybe add one of the included stickers and….insert slapping done-hands emoji!  Easy and also peasy! 🙂

Check these out!

Oh – did I mention that each card base and envelope has gorgeous red foil accents?

Sorry.  They totally do!

This one has a sentiment sticker on it that’s included in the pack!

Yes – I DID stamp the pine bough from the Cherish the Season stamp set onto the front of my envelopes in Shaded Spruce! 🙂

This one has a beautiful die cut sentiment sticker added to the card front!

On the insides, I added a sentiment from the Wishes & Wonder stamp set – and a sticker from the pack…

And this card shows two things.  One – it’s got a sentiment from the Cherish the Season set.  AND – you can see the foil design – on the cards where I used the large Memories & More cards – I flipped the card base inside-out – so that I didn’t cover up that gorgeous red foil!  😉

I’ve still got Memories & More cards and beautiful gold and white die cut sentiment stickers leftover so I can make even more cards!  And – there are more designs, too!

Et Voila!  As you head into the rush, bustle and stress of the holiday season – take a little bit of the pressure off!  The Wonder of the Season Memories & More Card Pack and the coordinating cards and envelopes can help you create beautiful Christmas cards – that you’ll be PROUD to send – and still have time leftover to bake that extra batch of Christmas cookies to decorate with the kids!

So.  Now for the even-more-better part – where I give you a chance to save a little money – and spend some time hanging out and making Christmas Cards with me!

I’ve got a Special Bundle for you – good from right now thru the end of the day on Friday, 30 Oct.

Hope to see a bunch of you on 17 Nov!!

Stampin’ Up! Plaid Press On In Good Taste!

Good morning and welcome back to the week!  Did y’all have a good weekend?  We enjoyed ours – no more riding for us due to the wet and sloggy mud from Saturday’s rain.  Hoping to get back out there a couple times this week!

I made a quick and easy card for you today.  Now – there IS a little fussy cutting but it’s so worth it.  And not all that hard.  I used the fun Press On stamp set – for all us coffee lovers! – and TWO designer papers (BOTH of which are on SALE right now:  The In Good Taste DSP and Plaid Tidings DSP.  Two of my faves!  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from the Freshly Made Sketches challenge – although you can see I gave it a flip!

And I also played along with the Festive Friday challenge.  Look for a Hot Drink, Plaid, Die Cut, Pearls, Brown and Gold in my card!

Finally – I made this one be a little more masculine in tone – for the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.

I started with a piece of In Good Taste DSP that I matted on Cinnamon Cider for the card front.

Next – using a Stitched Rectangle Die – I cut four pieces of Cinnamon Cider Plaid Tidings DSP.  I used the same die to cut a Whisper White rectangle.

On the Whisper White die cut, I stamped a Press On sentiment in Early Espresso (I feel like this color MUST be on any card that has a coffee theme.  Am I right??!).  I cheated the sentiment towards the left side of the rectangle.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the rectangles to the card front.

On a piece of Whisper White – I stamped the large cup image from Press On in Early Espresso.  Then I stamped it again.  Then I stamped it a THIRD time on the same In Good Taste DSP that I’d used for the card front.

I fussy cut one of the whole cups.  Then I fussy cut just that lid.  THEN I fussy cut the coozy from the DSP-stamped image.

I adhered the coozy to the full-cup image with Liquid Glue.  Then I used Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop the lid on.

Using my Light Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blend – I very lightly brushed it on the sides of the cup and lid – to help it look a little less….flat! 😉

I popped the whole thing onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

From a piece of Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP – I fussy cut a small pumpkin (in Cajun Craze and gold foil) – and popped it onto the coozy with a Mini Stampin’ Dimensional.

I colored a few Pearl Basic Jewels with my Dark Cinnamon Cider Stampin’ Blend – popped them on – and the caed front was done!

On the inside, I matted another piece of In Good Taste DSP on Cinnamon Cider and adhered it across the bottom of a Whisper White panel.  I adhered another Plaid Tidings Stitched Rectangles Die with Liquid Glue as well.  I added a second Press On sentiment in Early Espresso – and a Cinnamon Cider colored Pearl Basic Jewel.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Cinnamon Cider mat and into my Early Espresso card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got an Early Espresso Press On cup – colored with my Light Crumb Cake Blend and another fun sentiment…

…and a little more Plaid Tidings DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  The Press On stamp set is so much fun – I love the “steam” sentiment and the large images – but…take a peek at the little line of cups!  I think it’s perfect for when you need a masculine card, don’t you?

I hope you like!

If you want to recreate this card – all the Stampin’ Up! products you need are listed down below along with the card cuts!

Stampin’ Up! Gather Together Gilded Autumn 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 – Jaydee’s got a cool sketch challenge for us this week.  It’s a good one –  that I know will give your creative mojo a bump!  So I hope you’ll come and play along with us!

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 used one of my favorite bundles of all time – the Gather Together stamp set with its gorgeous Gathered Leaves dies!  And I also brought out some In Good Taste and Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP.  Take a look-see:

And here’s our Paper Players badge – I hope you’ll come and play along! 🙂

 

The color palette is from this week’s Color Throwdown Challenge!

And I also played along with the Global Design Project theme challenge.

I started with some barnwood paper from the In Good Taste DSP (on sale now – but only thru the end of the month!) that I matted on Cajun Craze for the card front.

Next up – I cut three Stitched Rectangle Die cuts from two different foil-embossed patterns in the Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP and adhered them to the card front with Liquid Glue.  Tip:  adhere the middle rectangle first – then add the other two equi-distant on either side of the first one.

Using all three of the awesome cutting and embossing leaf dies from the Gathered Leaves Dies, I cut one of each from two different shades of Brushed Metallic Card stock.

I also cut a few Very Vanilla berries using the die from my berry-go-to set…the Poinsettia Dies.

On a piece of Very Vanilla, I stamped the large leaf from Gather Together in stamped-off-once Crumb Cake.  Then I added a sentiment in Cajun Craze and cut it out with the matching Gathered Leaves die.

I built the collage with the metallic leaves and Very Vanilla berries – all with a Gold Hoop Embellishment as a focal piece.  I used Liquid Glue for all the leaves and a couple of Glue Dots for the hoop.  Tip:  You can see that some of the leaves are on top of the hoop and some under.  That’s a fun way to add some depth and interest to your collages!

Finally, I added the sentiment leaf with a few Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered a final Brushed Metallic card stock leaf to the sentiment.  I ran two lengths of Linen Thread thru the top of an Acorn Trinket and tied a bow.  Then I adhered it with a Glue Dot.

A few Gold Metallic Pearls nestled here and there finished off the card front.

On the inside. I added a stamped-off-TWICE Crumb Cake leaf in the middle of a Very Vanilla panel.  Then I stamped a second sentiment in Cajun Craze over the top.  I added a single gold Metallic Pearl to finish it off.  Who says embellishments can’t be on the INside?? 😉

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

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got another Crumb Cake leaf on the front…

…and a little more pumpkin-strewn Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP on the envelope flap!

Et Voila!  Really.  Is it any wonder this Gather Together set – with the wunnermus Gathered Leaves dies – is one of my favorites….EVER??  I mean – it’s like Stampin’ Up! made this just for me!  And…for you!  Cuz you NEED this bundle (and it IS bundled – for a savings of 10%.  I hope it keeps going into the next Annual Catalog – but even if it does – I am betting it won’t be bundled!!).

I hope you like!

It happened.

The worst.

It WASN’T all about pony spa days.

There was an agenda.  A hidden one.

An….EVIL one!

Yes.  We rode the ponies on Saturday.

For like…15 minutes.

Longest.  Fifteen.  Minutes. Of their LIVES!

The horror.

Finn was safely in the house so he wouldn’t inadvertently cause any….unexpectedness!  😉

Stampin’ Up! Gather Together for a Video Tutorial Sneak Peek!

‘Sup, y’all?!?  Having a good weekend?  As I type this on Friday evening, we’re hearing that we’ve got some rain coming tomorrow.

Yeah?

I did notice my garden looking a little dry on Friday, so I guess I’ll be happy to let the weather water them for me!  I’ll spend the day getting caught up on cards.  And we’ve got a brisket in the fridge that will go in the smoker first thing.  So…YUM!

What I DO know for sure, is that I’ll be going live tonight at 7pm Eastern on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page.  We’re going to make a fun Fall/Thanksgiving card – with some of my favorite things from one of my favorite bundles.  Here’s a sneaky peek!

I’m betting you can get a pretty good idea what you might see on this card, huh? 😉

Well – come check your guesses tonight.  7pm Eastern.  Right here!

Stampin’ Up! Dragonfly Garden Sneak Peek Thank You with Video Tutorial

Good morning and happy Friday!  October is winding down – meaning November is right around the corner!  Yikes!  I passed up bags of cranberries yesterday at the grocery store.  Stopped.  Considered.  Decided there was plenty of time.  Fingers crossed that that is true and there’s not the Great Cranberry Shortage of 2020 – just to tie a bow on this year! 🙂

If you were able to join me yesterday for my YouTube live, I appreciate you spending some time with me – if not, but you’d like to see the replay, here ’tis! 🙂

This card is big sneak peek!  One of the cool little perks we Demonstrators get is early looks at new products – and THIS one is VERY new – and was only available to the demonstrators who are attending our Virtual conference coming up in a couple of weeks!

It’s a brand new suite, called Dragonfly Garden – that YOU will get to see in the Jan – Jun 2021 Mini Catalog! 🙂

Yes.  THAT’S just around the corner, too! 😳😳😳😳  WHOO-HOO!!

Check out this wonderful stamp set!  And – yes.  It has a bundled….PUNCH!!  Of two dragonflies!  Whaaaa?!?

And the accompanying 6″ x 6″ DSP – called Dandy Gardens is….gorgeous!!

AND – there’s also Mossy Meadow 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim and tiny, adorable….LADYBUG TRINKETS!!

Yeah.  Ladybug.  Trinkets.

I didn’t use them on this card.  But I will.  Oh yes – I will! 😉

Okay – that’s a LOT of lead-up for my sneak peek!  I used the Stampin’ Up! Dragonfly Garden set and the bundled Dragonflies Punch, with some of the Dandy Garden DSP for this one!

The layout for this one is from the Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge!

I started with a Crumb Cake card base and adhered a Subtle 3D Embossed Crumb Cake panel to the front with Liquid Glue.  Remember – that’s a great way to make your card LOOK like you ran the front of it thru an embossing folder…but without the resulting warping that often happens when you do that! 🙂

Next, I used the next-to-largest Stitched Rectangle Die to cut two pieces of the Dandy Gardens 6″ x 6″ DSP.  I adhered them to the card front at a jaunty angle using Liquid Glue.

On a piece of Whisper White, I stamped the Dragonfly Garden sentiment in Calypso Coral.  Over that, I added some of the little…bugs (there’s debate over the species of these bugs – are they lightning bugs?  Dragonflies? No-see-ums?  Large gnats?  Small gnats?  No one is sure.  So – “bugs”)…in stamped off once Bumble Bee!

Then I cut the sentiment with the next-to-largest circle Stitched Shapes die.  I laid it where I wanted it on the card base – and used a pencil to mark the back.  Then I trimmed that little edge off with my Paper Trimmer.  Check the video if that was totally gibberish! 😉

 

I pulled out the Poinsettia Dies and the Autumn Essentials Dies and cut some Calypso Coral berries (x2) and Bumble Bee wheat stalks (one of each).   These are adhered to the card front with Liquid Glue.  Then I popped the trimmed sentiment on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I used some Stampin’ Seal to adhere loops of that yummy Mossy Meadow 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim.

On another piece of Whisper White, I stamped the large dragonfly in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  When it was dry, I colored it with my Light Misty Moonlight Stampin’ Blend.  I used the Color Lifter in the middle of the wings to lighten the color and make it a little more dimensional.  Then I punched him out with the Dragonflies Punch.

Speaking of – I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop the dragonfly onto the card front.

I punched out two teensy Calypso Coral dragonflies (with the punch!) and added them with Liquid Glue.

Finally, I colored some Rhinestone Basic Jewels with my Dark Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blend – and added them to the card front – and…that was it!

On the inside, I added the gorgeous wildflowers image from Dragonfly Gardens twice in Mossy Meadow.  I added more Bumble Bee “bugs”, too!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Bumble Bee mat and into the Crumb Cake card base and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more of the wildflowers and bugs on the front…

…and I put a little more of the Dandy Gardens DSP on the envelope flap!

Et Voila!  How MUCH do you love Stampin’ Up’s Dragonfly Gardens??  And the bundled Dragonflies Punch – yes, please!  I think – nope…I KNOW this one is going to be wildly popular and I can’t wait for y’all to be able to get your hands on it! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Ornamental Merry Hello 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 Pick-3-Colors 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 saw “Christmas” when I saw the five colors we had to choose from this week and decided to pull out the Ornamental Envelopes Bundle and A Merry Hello stamp set (which is a host-exclusive set!).  I added some Heartwarming Hugs DSP and…take a look-see:

Here’s our five colors – I pretty much chose Real Red, Bumble Bee and Old Olive!

I also used the sketch from this week’s CAS(E) This Sketch challenge!

I started with a piece of Whisper White for the card front.  Using my Stamparatus, I stamped the top five ornaments from the large image in Ornamental Envelopes in Bumble Bee.  I did that by carefully inking just the ornaments that I wanted to stamp.

I adhered a panel of Heartwarming Hugs DSP to the bottom of the panel with Liquid Glue.

Next, I wrapped a length of Real Red 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim twice around the panel – securing it in the back with Glue Dots.  Then I tied a bow around the trim on the front.

I popped the panel onto a Bumble Bee mat with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a piece of Whisper White, I stamped a sentiment from A Merry Hello twice – once in Bumble Bee and once in Old Olive.  I fussy cut the word “merry” from the Old Olive version.

Using one of the smallish dies in the Envelopes Dies – I cut the Bumble Bee version.  I edged the resulting sentiment “ornament” with my Bumble Bee Stampin’ Write Marker.

Then I popped the fussy cut sentiment in place with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals and used a couple more Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop the sentiment over the wrapped Linen Trim.

Using my Bumble Bee Stampin’ Write Marker – the fine-tip end – I added a few little dots above the popped on sentiment (to mimic the “hangars”).

I added some stars and small dots from the All The Trimmings Embellishments and the card front was done.

On the inside, I added a second sentiment from A Merry Hello in Old Olive ink onto a Whisper White panel.  Then I added three small ornaments from the Ornamental Envelopes set in Bumble Bee ink.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Bumble Bee panel and into my Old Olive card base, added the card front with more Liquid Glue and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more small ornaments on the front…

…and more of the Heartwarming Hugs DSP on the envelope flap.  THEN – this is fun! – I used a die in the Envelope Dies to cut a scallop edge in the bottom of the flap!

Et Voila!  I love the Ornamental Envelopes bundle – with it’s fun Envelope Dies, don’t you??

And – A Merry Hello is a sweet little host-exclusive stamp set!

I hope you like!

If you’d like to recreate this card, all the products and card cuts are listed below!

Stampin’ Up! Joy To The World October Paper Pumpkin Kit

Happy happy Hawwmp Day, y’all!  Hope your week is going well!  My days are flying by – we’ve got our Stampin’ Up! OnStage At Home event the first weekend in November (and TWELVE of my CNCK team are attending – virtually! – with me!) and then the weekend after that is our friend’s wedding!  We’ve got a cool house rented on Pawley’s Island – right on the beach!  🙂  Busy days ahead and then we’re gonna blink and…CHRISTMAS!!

Speaking of Christmas, my October Joy To The World Paper Pumpkin kit arrived last weekend and I put the eight gorgeous Christmas cards together right quick last night!  This kit is really beautiful – and even left me some extra pieces to make a bonus goodie!  Check out these beauties:

Like all Paper Pumpkin kits – this one included an exclusive stamp set and an Ink Spot (in Just Jade!).  I love this Joy To The World set – and it’s even got an inside sentiment!

The kit makes eight cards – four each of 2 designs- all with Crumb Cake/Gold Foil card bases – and eight envelopes with pretty liners!

One of the fun – included! – pieces is a spool of Cherry Cobbler Linen Thread.  Yes, please! 🙂

And – this is a “global” kit, so – while the sentiments in the stamp set are all in English for us, the included gold foil die cuts are in English, French and German!  And SU! even includes a “translation”!  You get two of each sentiment!

The colors in the set – Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Just Jade, Soft Sea Foam – are so beautiful – and are perfect with all the subtle gold touches!

I used my Stamparatus to make short work out of stamping the inside sentiment in all eight cards – plus the pretty wreath, stamped in Just Jade, with Cherry Cobbler berries!

I also added the wreath to the fronts of all the envelopes…

…but I didn’t have to do a thing on the back – each envelope is lined with a script-strewn Cherry Cobbler DSP!

Once I had all the cards and envelopes done – I had a few die cuts, sentiments and Linen Thread leftover, so…I made a gift box for my cards!

I embossed a piece of Whisper White card stock in the Scripty 3D Embossing Folder and matted it on Just Jade.  This is adhered with Liquid Glue to the top of my gift box.  I made the bottom of the box from Crumb Cake and the lid in Early Espresso! I adhered the die cuts with Liquid Glue and Dimensionals – and added a double bow with a Glue Dot!

So – quick like a bunny – I had a gift all ready to go!  We’ll make a box in a future video, I promise!

In case you’d like to see how this kit goes together, here’s the reveal on YouTube! 🙂

If you’re not a Paper Pumpkin subscriber, but would like to give it a try, you can either sign up for a subscription where you’re billed monthly for your kit or you can purchase a prepaid subscription in my online store.  For more info and to get signed up for the monthly kit – click here.  Or, see the options for prepaid subscriptions in my online store here.

Stamps-N-Lingers Packaging Stock Up Special Sale Starts Now!

Good morning, y’all!  About ready for Christmas?

I totally am.  I have all my shopping done – my Christmas cards are all made, addressed and ready to mail.  I have wrapped all the gifts I’m giving in a manner that would make Martha Stewart pea-green with envy and awestruck with admiration.  I’ve planned my menu for Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve AND New Year’s Day.  AND I’m developing a new recipe for a romantic dessert for Valentine’s Day.

Whew!  If absolutely even ONE part of that had been anything more than total and complete fiction from the mind of a crazy woman then….I WOULD. BE. AMAZING!

No – I’m for sure not that far ahead and I’m sort of assuming that you aren’t either!  But – that ticking clock you hear in your head says it’s time to be thinking about the gifting – packaging – mailing you need to do, am I right?

So…I’m here today to help you with PART of the Holiday-Season-Prep-Frenzy with….my annual….
