Good morning, everyone – how goes your weekend?! We’ve stayed pretty close to home – today’s plan includes “baking in” our new pizza oven!! Whoo-hoo! Yep, we finally pulled the trigger on a portable oven I’ve had my eye on since we started making pizza…a LOT!…cuz…PIZZA OVEN!! 🎉🎉🎉 And – once we do the seasoning, we’re going to give it a test run for dinner tonight. Fingers crossed!
Now – on a totally non-pizza note, let’s talk card! I did NOT mean to go back to the Trees For Sale stamp set and the Tree Lot Dies (a FREE Sale-a-Bration goody!) so quickly. I really didn’t! But – I had to! This one is a much quicker card than the LAST one I made – see it right here – so…there’s that! I added the pretty awesome Painted Christmas DSP – and some Whimsical Woodland 3D Embossing, too! Take a look-see:
Even as a retiree – waking up on Saturday morning feels…wunnermus! I don’t know why – it’s almost exactly the same as the other 6 days but… 🤷♀️🤷♀️🤷♀️ Do you feel the same? I suspect that those of you who aren’t retired probably do but…how about those of you who live lives of retired leisure like I do?!!? 😂😂😂 Retired Leisure. Is that even a THING?!?
Regardless of how you feel about Saturdays, I hope you’ll feel like joining me tonight at 7pm Eastern for a fun video over on my Stamps-N-Lingers YouTube channel! Here’s a sneaky peek of what we’ll be working on.
I made a fun card yesterday using the new Trees for Sale stamp set – with the coordinating (and FREE with a $100 purchase during Sale-A-Bration!) Tree Lot Dies. I wanted it to be NOT for Christmas, so…I pulled out the Happiness Abounds stamp set to get a couple of sentiments. AND – it’s a fun fold card! Take a look-see:
Good morning, y’all! It’s Thursday – which means it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! We’ve got a beautiful color challenge to work with 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!
When I saw the colors this week I knew right away that I was going to pull out the Nature’s Prints bundle and the Sun Prints DSP. And so…I did! 🙂 Take a look-see:
And here’s the color challenge! I used all but the Night of Navy! 😎
I started using the white Pearlized Enamel Effects to “color” a Textural Element. I used a little extra “paint” at the ends where the berries are, to create a more rounded appearance. I set the element aside to dry while I worked on the rest of the card!
Next up, I stamped the fern image from the Nature’s Bundle stamp set in Starry Sky ink all over a Starry Sky panel. Then I embossed the panel in the cool Fern 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to a Gray Granite mat for the card front.
I used the next-to-largest square Stylish Shapes die to cut a piece of plain Lovely Layers 3 3/4″ x 5″ Vellum and then adhered it to the card front with Glue Dots.
On a piece of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the Nature’s Prints fern in Starry Sky and the wildflower leaves in Pacific Point. Then I cut them both out with their matching dies in the bundled Natural Prints die set.
I used the leaves dies in the Natural Prints die set to cut out three long leaves from Gray Granite cardstock, and five smaller leaves from Starry Sky 2022-2024 In Color Glimmer Paper.
I double checked that the Pearlized Enamel Paint was dry on the Textural Elementand started creating the collage.
I adhered all the die cuts and the Textural Element to the card front with Liquid Glue.
With everything in place, I used a strip of Stampin’ Seal + to adhere a loop-de-doop of Gray Granite 1/4″ Shimmer Ribbon.
I stamped the Nature’s Prints sentiment in Starry Sky on a piece of Basic White and cut it out with the third-from-smallest Stylish Shapes die.
I popped the sentiment onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals, adhered some Starry Sky 2022-2024 In Color Matte Dots and the card front was done!
On the inside, I stamped a second sentiment from Nature’s Prints in Starry Sky on a piece of Basic White. Then, in stamped-off-once Pacific Point, I stamped the Nature’s Prints frond. I stamped it upside down – and have been…re-thinking that design choice since I made the card! 🤷♀️🤷♀️🤷♀️ If you make this card – stamp it upside right or downside wrong, whichever you prefer! 🙂 I added a Starry Sky 2022-2024 In Color Matte Dot next to the sentiment
I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Gray Granite mat and into my Thick Basic White card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.
My Basic White Medium Envelope got the Pacific Point frond a few times on the front…
…and a little of the Sun Prints DSP on the envelope flap.
Et Voila! Boy – I’ve been so caught up in new goodies from the Jul – Dec 2022 Mini that I’d sort of lost track of this beautiful Nature’s Printsstamp set and bundled Natural Prints dies. I love how the elements come together and they’re pretty amazing with the Fern 3D Embossing Folder, don’t you think?!?
I hope you like!

Happy Happy Hawwwmp Day, y’all! How goes your week?! Can you believe that we’re almost all the way thru July? Where the heck is the year going, anyway!? Yikes!!
So – even though it feels like Christmas is GALLOPING towards us – I did NOT do another Christmas card today. Instead – I went back to my fave place – the islands! I pulled out the Sunkissed set and got a little tiny bit of help from the Let’s Set Sail stamp set, too. Take a look-see:
Hello and happy Tuesday. Aren’t you glad I let you know each morning WHAT day it is? Believe me – it’s a labor of love – I’m not going to tell you how long it sometimes takes me each morning for ME to remember what day it is! 🤦♀️🤦♀️🤦♀️
My card today is not a Christmas card – yeah! Instead – it’s a sweet little number to just send to a friend who needs a hug. I used the Splendid Thoughts stamp set and bundled Splendid Stems dies. And the pretty Painted Posies 3D Embossing Folder. Take a look-see:
Hello hello!! Wondering how Thor was? Me, too – we didn’t go. I know. Lazy butts!! Whatcha gonna do?!? 🤷♀️
So – the new Ringed with Nature Bundle is really cool – if you haven’t seen or used it yet…you’re in for a treat! It’s a bundle that includes the Tree Rings Hybrid Embossing Folder and Dieset that we’re going to use to create really realistic looking tree rings! And I combined it with some wunnermus paper from the Rings of Love DSP – which is one of the cool FREE offerings during Sale-A-Bration! Take a look-see:
Happy weekend, y’all! Got big plans?? We MIGHT go see Thor – I can’t believe we waited long enough that it’s already out of iMax (insert pouty face emoji here). But we did. Prolly won’t even get to see it in 3D. Boo. Still looking forward to a little eye candy and some laughs – I do love the writing in the Avenger franchise!! 🙂
But – we’ll be home in good time for me to go live this evening at 7pm Eastern over on my Stamps-N-Lingers YouTube channel! I’ve got a pretty card for you using a very cool….Sale-A-Bration goody! Here’s a sneaky peek!
Yesterday was Christmas-in-July so…it only makes sense that TODAY be HALLOWEEN-in-July! Like all my Halloween cards – this one is not at ALL scary! I used the fun Best Witches stamp set and some cool Black & White Designs DSP to make it AND it’s a peek-a-boo window card, too! Take a look-see:
