Well – the week has flown by, hasn’t it?! It’s Friday again and we’re headed into the weekend. AND – this time next week I’ll be putting Critters/Inkin’ Krew Retreat goodies in the car and fixin to head to the airport to pick up Amy and Karen! Whoo-hoo! Our team has such a good time when we’re all able to be in the same place for a weekend. We’ll craft – and talk – and eat – and talk – and eat – and craft. And sleep! I can’t wait!! 🙂
Today’s card is a little different for me – but it’s one that I have fallen completely in love with! It features one of my fave sets ever – the Sending Smiles stamp set and the bundled Sending Dies. AND – the brand new and amaze-balls new Framed Florets Dies (which you can get on 1 Nov!!). Take a look-see:
I know! It DOES have dimensionals but…hardly any bling. No ribbon. No Linen Thread! WHO MADE THIS CARD?!?! 😳😳
The layout for this one come from the Tuesday Morning Sketches challenge.
And the color palette is from The Paper Players color challenge.
I started by using the fun heart-oval die in the new Framed Florets Die set to emboss an oval-of-hearts in a Basic White panel. This die is very very cool – it cuts out like a zillion little hearts from the panel – leaving a cool “negative” die cut oval! 🙂
I adhered the panel to an Orchid Oasis mat (I know it looks blue in the photos but…Orchid Oasis looks purple-y to me. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it! 😎) for the card front.
On another piece of Basic White, I stamped the pretty flower from Sending Smiles in Mango Melody ink.
Then I stamped the leaves image in Granny Apple Green. Finally – I added the small and adorable flower in Orchid Oasis. I did cheat the color challenge a smidge – and added some flower centers in So Saffron ink.
I used the large frame die from Framed Florets to cut out the image. When you do this – you’ll have the pretty frame – AND the pretty oval (it’s got a nice embossed edge on it!) leftover.
I popped the oval into place with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
On yet another piece of Basic White – I stamped the sentiment in Mango Melody and used the shorter label die in the Sending Dies to cut it out. Note: there are a lot of sentiment options in the Sending Smiles set – you could use ANY of them for this card – it’s such a versatile layout! Even the longer sentiments – cut with the longer label die – would be awesome!
I popped the sentiment onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I added a few Brushed Brass Butterflies and the card front was done.
For the inside, I stamped the Sending Smiles flowers and stem on a panel of Basic White cardstock. Tip: when you’re creating this flower image – the large top flower “drives” where the remainder of the image will end up on your panel. So – stamp it first. Then add the stem. Finally – add the small flower! I adhered one final small Brushed Brass Butterfly.
I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to an Orchid Oasis 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 Sending Smiles flowers on the front…
…and a little flowerdy Orchid Oasis paper from the 2022-2024 In Color 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap.
Et Voila! I don’t know what it is about the flowers in this Sending Smiles stamp set – but they’re some of my favorite of all time!! The coordinating (and bundled – for a 10% saving!) Sending Dies cut out all the images – plus the label dies – PLUS an amazing “shadowed” die cut sentiment!! LOVE! The Framed Florets die set brings some gorgeous oval shapes back into our tool chest – and they’re as pretty as they are useful! Get them on 1 Nov – or join the team right now – and get them in your Starter Kit! 🙂

Finn Fan Fix
The other day was Pizza Night – we love pizza night!
Finn loves pizza night.
The first pizza came back in the house a little more…done…than we usually like. But – it’s pizza!
The second pizza…well. It was the victim of a pizz-tastrophe.
It started to slide on the peel – and Wayne tried to save it but…nope.
It hit the ground. And – like every piece of buttered toast or peanut butter bread – it hit top-down. 😔😔😔😔
Wayne snatched the crust up (well within the time-honored 5 second rule) but…the toppings were…
We took the crust in – added just a little more cheese and the few remaining pepperonis and dried tomatoes and re-fired that booger. We figured at 800d it would probably kill off any lingering cooties.
In the meantime – Finn saw a need.
Cheese and pizza sauce juice brings pests and he wasn’t having any part of it!
He was diligent – checking all the nooks. All the crannies. JIC.
I’m the man for the job, Mom – just leave it to me!
Silver lining? We determined that sourdough pizza crust DESERVES to be lightly sauced – lightly cheese’d – and VERY minimally topped. The nearly naked crust was DELICIOUS!! We have a new way to love our pizza!!
