Stampin’ Up! Video Sneak Peek and My Retired Items Sale is OPEN!

Good Saturday morning, y’all!  Have you got your mind wrapped around the fact that you LOSE an hour of sleep tonight?? Or…do you lose it tomorrow??  Hmm.  I always try to set my clocks when I go to bed – especially on the Spring-forward “go” – cuz…it depresses me no end to “lose” an hour of daylight if I have to do it in the morning.  But – I LOVE Daylight Savings Time – so…I am ready to get this transition done.


Just sayin!

So – tonight – whilst still on Standard time – I’ll be going live at 7pm Eastern on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page to bring you a pretty card (she says modestly) using a heavy fave from the Jan – Jun 2021 Mini Catalog.  Here’s a sneaky peek!

Gosh – can you even guess?!? 😉

I think you’ll like it – so I hope you’ll be able to join me!

Tonight.  7pm Eastern.  Right here!

Now – in other news – it’s time to clear off the shelves – out with the old to make room for the new!  Which means – time for my Retiring Products (from the Aug – Dec 2020 Mini Catalog and the 2021 Sale-A-Bration Catalog) to go on sale!

I’ve got a new system I’m trying this time – so…give me like…a thousand mulligans if it doesn’t go perfectly this go-round!  But…you can click right here to see a full list of everything I’ve got!

Stamps-N-Lingers Butterfly Bouquet Special Bundles!

Y’all know that the Butterfly Bouquet Early Release promotion runs just from 2 Mar – 3 May 2021.  After that  – you’ll have to wait for the release of the new 2021-2022 Annual Catalog to get them.   But – you probably ALSO know that the gorgeous Designer Series paper that will NOT BE AVAILABLE AT ALL after the end of this promotion period.  You read that right!  The Butterfly Bijou 6″ x 6″ DSP and the Natural Touch Specialty DSP are only going to be available WHILE SUPPLIES LAST – and then…poof!  Gone! 🙁

So, to help you get the goods right quick and save a little dough…I took a look at what’s coming on 2 March – and put together ONE SINGLE BUNDLE – and a couple of add-ons for you.

The Butterfly Brilliance Bundle – $71

If you bought all these products separately you’d spend about $85 when you factor in shipping and tax – depending on how much Uncle Sam takes where you live.

Here’s what you’ll get:

Butterfly Brilliance Bundle $54.75
Butterfly Brilliance 6″ x 6″ DSP $11.50
Natural Touch Specialty DSP $5.00

BONUS:  When you purchase the Butterfly Brilliance Bundle, you’ll get a FREE package of Gold Hoop Embellishments (see how well these work and why I love them with this bundle right here!)!

Now – when you purchase the bundle – you’ve got the option to add on some additional packs of the DSPs and/or the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine if you don’t have one!  If you don’t already have one – this is a GREAT time to get it and you’re for SURE going to want to be able to use the amazing Brilliant Wings Dies (they cut out the stamped image from Butterfly Brilliance AND butterflies from the Butterfly Bijou 6″ x 6″ DSP!!

Butterfly Bijou 6″ x 6″ DSP add-on:  $10 each

Natural Touch Specialty DSP add-on: $4 each

Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine: $109 each (note: this is the full-size machine and comes with 1 Base Plate, 1 Die Plate, 2 Cutting Plates, and 1 Specialty Plate – so you’ll be able to get to work right away!)

One more note – once you hit “Submit” -it takes a hot second (or twelve!) for the system to do it’s thing.  Be patient – it’ll get there. Once it has – it says “Message Sent – Go Back”.   You can click “Go Back” and that will return you to the Blog Post! 🙂

Finn Fan Fix 

Yesterday, I was in the house working and Wayne called.

“Have you seen your dog?”


“Well – look out the window”.

So…I stepped outside to see what was up.

And…THIS is what was up.

Can’t really see the problem?  Let me help.

According to his Dad – he’d discovered a mud puddle.  In which he leaped and cavorted and camboled and then got the zoomies.


He actually thought I might be going to let him in the house.

Oh…no.  Just….no.

A bath was in order – but we decided we’d let him go for a proper swim to knock the worst of it off.

Figured I’d take a little movie for you.  Enjoy!

  1. Oh, my gosh! What a boy!! Thank you for bringing such delight to my morning coffee with the movie. How I wish I could part with my stamp sets, dies, DSP and EF’s…I just don’t have it in me but I’ve got to do something soon!

    • stampsnlingers

      Movie and a cuppa! Good way to start the day! Thanks, Karen – and…you’ll need to think about letting them go when the stacks are over your head!! ROFL!! 🙂

  2. Gerri K

    Thanks for the movie! Finn sure does enjoy himself and I enjoy watching. 🙂
    Looking forward to tonight’s card. Seashells – my favorite (specially since I live at the Jersey shore.

    • stampsnlingers

      Yes – if you’re near the shore it’s almost a requirement for this to be one of your favorite sets!! Thanks – and glad that you enjoyed the video! 🙂

  3. Looking forward to your live video tonight! Hope that your sale goes great. 🙂 I’m sure that Finn had an awesome day…first a roll in the mud, then a swim in the pond…can’t get better for a dog! 😉

    • stampsnlingers

      Yep – it went in the Good Day for Dog column, for sure!! Thanks, Amy, for your help! 🙂

  4. Judi Burkhalter

    Finn’s Fun Friday! I love your dog! I’m so happy he’s living his best life with you.

    • stampsnlingers

      I do think he’s pretty happy and having a good time! Thank you, Judi! 🙂

  5. Susan K

    Can’t wait to see the card!
    Yep, Finn is typical boy who loves the water. He wasn’t ready to go to the house!

    • stampsnlingers

      He does love to swim – and looks so cute doing it, too! Thanks, Susan! 🙂

  6. Faith Simpson

    Hi Mary,
    I was just playing with the seashells yesterday…..great minds, etc…..I’ll look forward to your card!
    As for Finn…..when he is dirty….or naughty, he is YOUR dog?? Is that how it works??
    I kept waiting for him to really shake all over you….did he eventually get you? He looked to be having loads of fun!! I assume he did get a bath and got to come back in the house….

    • stampsnlingers

      Yep!! He’s mine when he’s muddy!! And yes – right at the end when he shook he got me pretty good. And yes – he DID get a bath and he DID come in the house!! See you tonight, Faith -thanks!

  7. Lynn Klitzke

    Oh my goodness !! Love all the cards you make, BUT… this Finn picture and video is the BEST !!!
    It made my day. Thank you so much for sharing Finn with us. I miss our Border Collie, Charlie, so to see your baby Finn was just the most wonderful happy thing to start my day! ♥

    • stampsnlingers

      So glad to bring a smile, Lynn!! He is a ton of fun – and I am betting Charlie was, too! Thank you so much! 🙂

  8. OMG. Finny was having a good ole time.. I love reading about him when you post. He makes me smile ever time. Very spoiled dog. Just like ours is. How can you not spoil them when they give you those puppy dog eyes. Tfs

    • stampsnlingers

      I haven’t been able to not spoil one since…forever! It’s too easy! 🙂 Thanks very much, Dawn – glad you enjoyed the video. It made me laugh! 🙂

  9. I loved watching the video. I miss our collie so much. How she loved to shake the water off. Our girl did not like water. With the several coats of hair it took all day for her to get dry. She hated a blow dryer.

    • stampsnlingers

      Glad you enjoyed it! Finn likes to swim – but…it DOES take forever for him to dry. Even WITH a dryer! 😳😳😳 I’m sorry about your collie – I know you miss her every day! 🙁 Thank you, Lora.
