Stampin’ Up! Colorful & Delightful Daisy Thank You

Good morning!!  I hope your weekend is going well!

This afternoon, I’ll be taking the Finn-ster to our first obedience class.  Time for him to figure out that he can behave nicely even with other dogs and people around!  It’s step one towards my goal to do pet therapy with him!  Once I get home, I’ll be getting ready to do my Sunday night Facebook Live with y’all.  Not sure yet what we’re going to make, but…I think we’ll have fun!  So be sure to come on over to my Facebook page at 8pm Eastern this evening.  Here’s a link right to the page!

Now for today, I really tried to resist my strong desire to use my new favoritest bundle from the new catalog – the Daisy Delight bundle.

I tried.

And failed. 🙂

So I paired it up with some Color Theory DSP (also available 1 June) and this is what I ended up with.  Take a look-see:

I played along with a couple of challenges on this one.  The first, from Freshly Made Sketches, inspired the layout.

And the color scheme is from the CAS-ual Fridays challenge.

I elected to use Dapper Denim for my navy color, and began by SNAILing a piece of the Color Theory DSP Stack to a Powder Pink mat.  Powder Pink is one of the new 2017-2019 In Colors!

My center panel is simply a piece of Whisper White, matted on Powder Pink card stock and SNAILd to the card front.

I used a little Liquid Glue to adhere a piece of Powder Pink card stock to the Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from Daisy Delight in Dapper Denim on Whisper White and popped it over the Powder Pink mat with some Stampin’ Dimensionals.

For my flowers, I stamped the large flower image from Daisy Delight in Powder Pink four times on some Whisper White card stock, and cut them out with the Daisy Punch.

I used a Blender Pen to brush some Pink Pirouette ink near the center of the flowers, and then used Liquid Glue to stack two together.  I popped the flowers onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals and added a couple of Clear Faceted Gems (coming in the new catalog on 1 June) to the middles.

On the inside, I stamped some more Daisy Delight flowers in Powder Pink in the corner of a Whisper White panel.  Once again, I brushed Pink Pirouette onto the petals and the center of the flowers with a Blender Pen.  Then I used the flower-middle image in Daisy Delight to stamp a Powder Pink middle.  Finally, I added a second Daisy Delight sentiment in Dapper Denim.

I SNAILd the panel to a Powder Pink mat and into my Dapper Denim card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got a couple more Powder Pink Daisy Delight flowers on the front…

…and I added a little more of the Dapper Denim Color Theory DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I couldn’t help it, y’all.  I just love this set!!  Daisy Delight and the matching Daisy Punch.  Wow!  I hope you like – and….well.  You know the rest!  Get your wish lists ready!!

Finn-Fan Fix…

Well, he’s back.  Finn has got his groove back!

But – he still didn’t have it on Friday night.  He only made it about half way to the barn with me when I went to tuck the horses in.

Guess he figured he was still meeting the intent of taking care of me, long as he could see me!

Or at least hear me!

Once he got back in the house, though….the great weariness overcame him once again….

Yes.  It overcame him right in the middle of chewing his bone.  One second he was chewing and then….asleep.

Check the tongue! And the fang sticking out.  LOL

Ridiculously cute.

Stampin’ Up! Pieces & Patterns Sneak Peek

Good morning, y’all!  I’ve got a quick and easy super-simple-single-stamp-set-sneak-peek card for you today – cuz I know everyone’s busy with weekend things!

The Pick a Pattern Suite includes a fun and colorful Designer Paper and a cute little stamp set called Pieces & Patterns.

I let the designer paper do a lot of the work on this little card with the stamp set playing a supporting role.  Take a look-see:

The layout comes from the CAS(E) This Sketch challenge this week.

I started with a piece of the Pick a Pattern DSP in Flirty Flamingo, SNAILing it to a Basic Black mat.  I think this paper is so fun – when I look at it I think of the Mystery Machine.  You know – the van in the Scooby-Doo cartoons?!?  I know – it was blue and green, but…still! 😊

The middle layer is a piece of Whisper White, also matted on Basic Black.  I stamped the sentiment from Pieces & Patterns in Flirty Flamingo near the bottom of the panel.  I surrounded it with the little circles image from the set.  They’re stamped in Sahara Sand ink  – I stamped it off on scrap paper before stamping the panel.  Then I colored a few of the circles with my Emerald Envy, Crushed Curry and Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Write Markers and adhered the panel to the card front with SNAIL.

For my little flowers, I stamped them in Basic Black Archival Ink on Whisper White card stock and fussy cut them.  I colored a couple of them in Emerald Envy and one in Crushed Curry.  Then I adhered the Crushed Curry flower with Liquid Glue and popped the others on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

To finish it off, I added some Crushed Curry Glitter Enamel Dots to the flowers and near the sentiment.  These are fun little embellishments – you get different sizes and they come in ombre shading!

On the inside, I added some more of the little circles in stamped-off-once Sahara Sand and colored them in Crushed Curry, Flirty Flamingo and Emerald Envy.

I SNAILd the panel to a Basic Black mat and then into my Whisper White card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Pieces & Patterns circles…

…and a bit more of the Pick a Pattern DSP on the envelope flap.  I also added another little Pieces & Patterns flower in Basic Black Archival Ink, Emerald Envy and Crushed Curry.

Et Voila!  I think this is a fun little card – and you could change up the color scheme for the sentiment and flowers.  Hope you like and will be adding this to your wish list!

Finn-Fan Fix…

Poor pooped puppy!!  

I’ve not seen him so quiet since the first days he lived with us and wasn’t sure what was what!

He spent most of Friday like this….

…either in the house with the A/C on or under the golf cart.

But – he’s a resilient soul.  By feeding time yesterday evening…back to pretty much normal.

We were taking the trash to the can and getting the mail.  He likes to carry the leash when it’s on him.  

We don’t know why.

It makes him happy, so…I’m good with it!

Suspecting we’ll see the return of the boinger some time today! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Crafting Forever Sneak Peek

It’s Friday!  And my puppy is back, my husband is recovering and my vegetable plants will arrive today!  Whoo-hooo!

I have a cute little card to share with you today, courtesy of the new Crafting Forever stamp set (available 1 June) in the new 2017-2018 Annual Catalog.  I paired it with a little bit of Pick a Pattern DSP (1 June) and came up with a simple CAS card.  Take a look-see:

I played with the sketch challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments.

And my not-my-normal-style color palette is from the Color Throwdown challenge this week.

I used Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Rich Razzleberry and Crushed Curry for this card!

To begin, I took a piece of Whisper White card stock and added Rich Razzleberry “stitches” around the edge with my Stampin’ Write Markers, then SNAILd it to a Pumpkin Pie mat.

The middle panel is a piece of Crushed Curry paper from the Pick a Pattern DSP, matted on Pumpkin Pie and SNAILd to the card front.

I stamped the scissors from the Crafting Forever stamp set, in Basic Black Archival Ink, on Whisper White, and fussy cut them.  I kind of liked the symmetry of cutting the scissors out with my scissors! 😏

I colored the handles with my Stampin’ Write Markers in Pumpkin Pie, Rich Razzleberry and Real Red and used Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere them to the card.

My Crafting Forever sentiment is stamped in Real Red on Whisper White and cut with a Stitched Shapes Framelits circle, then matted on a scalloped Pumpkin Pie circle cut with the Circles Layering Framelits.  I popped that on with Dimensionals, and the card front was done!  See?  Told ya it was quick and easy!!

For my inner liner, I repeated the Rich Razzleberry “stitches” around a Whisper White panel and added the Crafting Forever scissors in Basic Black Archival Ink.  Then I colored the handles with my Crushed Curry Stampin’ Write Marker.

I SNAILd it to a Pumpkin Pie mat and into my Rich Razzleberry card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another pair of scissors on the front – this one colored in Real Red…

…and a bit more of the Pick a Pattern DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This Crafting Forever stamp set is so cute – and it’s also the Angel Policy stamp set for 2017-2018.  Hope you like – and will be adding it to your wish list! 😊

Finn-Fan Fix…

So – the Finn-meister is home.

And he’s a good Aussie.

Which is to say…he’s exhausted! 😊👍😊👍

He and Ryder played and swam and ran and played and swam and ran….

Here’s how the pick-up went…

On the way down there, I reminded Wayne that Finn was going to be terribly excited to see us.  He was likely going to do a lot of leaping and wiggling and jumping around.  Protect the belly!

We were prepared.

Finn – was not.  He walked into the room – flat footed.  Tail definitely wagged – but…he was very quiet.  I know he was happy to see us.

He simply didn’t have an iota of excess energy with which to express it!

He laid down on the floorboard of the van and slept all the way home.  As I type this – he’s sacked out flat on the floor in the bathroom where the tile is cool and the A/C is blowing on him.

All in all – a wonderful experience for him!

It was a little embarrassing listening to all the praise heaped upon his freckled face, though!  

I got the distinct impression that they liked him.

At least a little bit! 😎😎

Stampin’ Up! Wood Words Note for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

15822762_10211923272945503_223384966683691578_n
Happy Thursday, y’all – and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!  If you’ve been following along, you’ll know this is color week!  I think you’ll see some pretty projects today from the ladies-who-hop, so be sure to spend a little time checking them out!

Here’s our color palette…


I decided to use the pretty floral image in the new Wood Words stamp set (available 1 June) and some more of the Wood Textures DSP Stack (also 1 June) paper to make a quick and easy note card for you – take a look-see:


My layout was loosely inspired by the sketch over at Stamp, Ink Paper:


This one took me less than hour to put together and that included 15 minutes sitting at my crafting desk, staring blankly into space wondering what in the world to make!  It’s been a bit of a week here at my house, folks – and my creatin’ neurons weren’t firing too well!  Speaking of which – Wayne did great in his surgery yesterday and got home speedy quick!  Thank you all so very much for the many well wishes and prayers we received!!  I’m grateful to each and every one of you!

So, I started with a dark wood paper design from the wondrous Wood Textures DSP Stack, and matted it on Peekaboo Peach card stock.


For the second layer, I chose a white-washed wood design and heat embossed the floral image from the Wood Words stamp set in Copper.  Using my Peekaboo Peach and Pear Pizzazz Stampin’ Write Markers, I colored the flowers and leaves.

The sentiment, from Wood Words, I stamped in Chocolate Chip ink, using my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to position it where I wanted it.  Then I matted the panel on Peekaboo Peach and SNAILd it to the card front.

I wrapped a piece of the new 1/4″ Copper Trim around the whole panel, securing it in the back with scotch tape.  Then I tied a bow and adhered it with a Glue Dot – and that was it for the card front!

On the inside of the card, I again heat embossed the Wood Words floral image – this time in White – on a Whisper White panel (it’s hard to see in the picture – sorry! 😔).  Then I colored the flowers and leaves with my markers.


I SNAILd the panel to a Peekaboo Peach mat and into my Pear Pizzazz card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got a repeat of the White Embossed florals from Wood Words…


…and some more of the white-washed Wood Textures DSP paper on the envelope flap.


Et Voila!  Easy and beautiful – I love how the rustic wood paper works so beautifully with the copper in the embossing and the new 1/4″ Copper Trim.  Hope you like – and are adding this to your wish list if it wasn’t there already! 😉

Stampin’ Up! Special Delivery In The City Sneak Peek

Happy Hawmp Day, y’all!  By the time you read this, we’ll be on the way to the horse-pital (we called it that when I was growing up – I have no idea why!) or – if you’re a late riser/reader, we’ll be in surgery.  By we, I mean…Wayne! I know he’s going to be a lot more relaxed once he’s asleep.  I know I will be! 😉

I made a quick little card for you today with a new Host-Exclusive stamp set that will be available on 1 June, called In The City.  It.  Is.  Very.  Fun!!

The In The City stamp is the total focus for this card – but I borrowed a tiny bit of paper from the Birthday Memories DSP.  Take a look-see

I played with a few challenges on this one.  The first, the Sunday Stamps challenge, is for the layout.

I borrowed my color scheme from the MFT Color Challenge.

Finally – I think this one fits with The Paper Players Clean-and-Simple Challenge this week.

I started with a Whisper White panel and stamped the stork image from In The City all over it with Versamark Ink, and then I SNAILd it on a Pacific Point mat.

For the next layer, I used a piece of Daffodil Delight paper from the Birthday Memories DSP, cut into a banner with my Banner Triple Punch and then matted on a similarly punched piece of Pacific Point.  Then I SNAILd the banner to the card front.

I used a little bit of Liquid Glue to adhere a Lace Doily white side up to the banner.

My sentiment is cut with a Stitched Shapes Framelits circle in Whisper White.  Using the fun little images in the In The City stamp set, I added the outline images in Basic Black Archival Ink around the circle.  The sun is stamped in Daffodil Delight, as is the fill-in of the house.  The car fill in is in Pacific Point and – oddly! – I have Tangerine Tango trees.  I used my Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Write Marker to color the baby blanket and my Pumpkin Pie marker to color the trim on the house.  The sentiment is stamped in Basic Black Archival Ink.

I decided to stamp a second house on a scrap of Whisper White and fussy cut it – then popped it over the house on the circle with a Stampin’ Dimensional.  Then I popped the sentiment circle over the Doily with more Dimensionals.  And that was it for the card front.

On the inside. I stamped a second In The City sentiment in Basic Black Archival Ink on a Whisper White panel.  Then I made another little city-scene across the bottom – coloring my Basic Black Archival Ink houses, cars and trees with stamped-off-once Tangerine Tango, Pumpkin Pie and Pacific Point.  I even added another Daffodil Delight sun!  The houses’ trims are colored in Pumpkin Pie and Daffodil Delight.

I SNAILd the panel to a Pacific Point mat and into my Pumpkin Pie card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals, and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got some more houses and such across the front…

…and I added some more Birthday Memories DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Volia!  Easy squeezy nice and easy!  Love this little Host Set!  Hope you like and are figuring out how to get yours as soon as you can!

Finn-Fan Fix…

Last Finn update for a day or two!

We dropped him at Dog Camp yesterday afternoon!

He was ecstatic to see his new human friend and meet a new new human friend!  And see Ryder.

Those Beagles, though – they kinda bamboozled him.  He made the mistake of looking sideways at one of their dinner bowls.

Holy shimoly shameele!  The baying and yowling and scolding and dog-shouting…poor Finn just looked at me like…. what the….??

Soon after, though – all was forgiven.

Dogs forgive pretty quickly.  Humans should take heed! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Watercolor Happy Birthday Thinlit Sneak Peek

Mornin’, y’all!  How goes your week?  We’re rushing towards Wednesday – my hubby is having some surgery that day (tomorrow!!) and I’m trying to get everything done and ready.  Busy days ahead, heh?

One of the new products in the 2017-2018 Annual Catalog is the Happy Birthday Thinlit (which coordinates and is bundled with the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set).  Just a single, bold and beautiful die…All you have to do is add a little color.  Take a look-see:

I just love this font – it’s very much like the pretty a la carte stamp set called Stylized Birthday, which is one of my favorites!

I played along with three challenges on this one.  The first, from TGIF Challenges, inspired the layout.

And my color palette is from the Just Us Girls challenge.

Finally – the Global Design Project is a theme challenge, and this card works perfectly for that one, too!

I started with some Canson 90lb Cold-Press Watercolor Paper for my card front.  Using my Watercolor Pencils, I added some Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight and Calypso Coral.  I let the colors overlap – and added some Daffodil Delight to the Calypso Coral to make it a little peachier!

Once I had a lot of color laid down, I used my Aqua Pen to blur my scribbled lines and blend the color some.  Then I let it dry completely.

My sentiment is from the Happy Birthday Thinlit – cut once in Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper and once in Melon Mambo card stock.  When the card front was completely dry, I used Liquid Glue to add the Melon Mambo die cut, then I added the Dazzling Diamonds cut over the top – offsetting it a little for a shadow effect,

I SNAILd the panel to a Melon Mambo mat, added a few Daffodil Delight Enamel Shapes and the card front was done!

For the inner liner, I pulled out the new Lovely Laurels Thinlits (also available 1 June) and cut the little flourish dies from the corners of a Whisper White panel.

I SNAILd the panel to a piece of Melon Mambo card stock and into my Peekaboo Peach card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

For my Whisper White Medium Envelope, I cut the two little flourishes again – this time from Melon Mambo card stock – and used Liquid Glue to adhere the little cut out pieces to the front…

…and on the envelope flap, I used the pieces of card stock with the negatives of the little flourishes as stencils to sponge a little design in Peekaboo Peach and Daffodil Delight.

Et Voila!  Super quick, super easy, super pretty!  A trifecta!!!  Hope you like – and will be adding this Happy Birthday Thinlit to your wish list!

Finn-Fan Fix…

One piece of getting ready for surgery-day is making sure all the animals are accounted for and taken care of (to my satisfaction!).  In a shining example of “timing is everything” – all the folks who would normally feed the horses and take Finn for the day are out of town.

The hospital is close enough I can feed the horses.

But I was hating the thought of Finn being in his kennel all day – and we’re not sure when we’ll get home tomorrow.

So – he’s going to Doggie Summer Camp!  I got a super recommendation for a spot and we took him yesterday for a visit and…well…an interview!!

It’s the No Place Like Home Kennel – and…it’s awesome!  The dogs are allowed to play with each other (if they’re well behaved – CHECK!) and play in the pond (if their parents let them – DOUBLE CHECK) and they take them for long runs in their huge fenced pasture (CHECK CHECK and CHECK)!!

During the interview (which – as I know you’ve guessed, he passed with flying colors! 😎) he met Ryder – a young Aussie-cross boarder.  

And they played….

…and they played.  Until Finn just stopped to pant.  And grin!

They have a young lady dog coming today that likes to leap off the dock and swim.  I suspect Finny will be in love.  And wet!

It’s an awesome-good spot and I know he’s going to have a great time!

Heck – I hope he even wants to come home when we pick him up!!

Stampin’ Up! Wood Textures Sneak Peek Note Card Holder!

Mornin’, y’all!  I hope you had a great Easter weekend!

Yesterday, I ever-so-slyly shared this picture with you to entice you to join me on Facebook last night…

Well – this was the “rest of the story”!

 

I made 10 little crates using the new Wood Crate Framelits and some of the too-cool photo-realistic Wood Textures DSP Stack paper!!  Filled them with some pink “grass” and added chocolate Easter Eggs.  They were a hit with my friends yesterday!

For the video last night,  I changed it up a bit and made…

I created the crate and then added three little 3″ x 3″ note cards using the Wood Words stamp set, and 3 matching envelopes that I made with the Envelope Punch Board!

Check out the video and see how to make these little cuties – and then add the Wood Words Bundle to your Wish List!

Finn-Fan Fix…

Yesterday morning, before we headed over to have Easter dinner with our friends – and let Finny have a playdate with Scout – we had farm work to do!

Fed the horses, cleaned the stalls, pulled feed for dinner.

Then we needed to sweep the aisle.

It was a terrible mess!

Finn’s version of “helping” is a little less than…helpful…

Stampin’ Up! Label Me Pretty Sneak Peek!

Happy Easter, y’all!

Before we get started – let me mention my Sunday night Facebook Live videos.  They’re usually at 8pm Eastern but tonight I’ve got a team meeting at the same time.  So…I’ll be going live at 7pm – that’s an hour earlier…. on my Stamps-N-Lingers Facebook Page.  Here’s a little sneak peek of the….sneak peek we’ll be playing with tonight!! 🙂

Okay – on with the card – I’ll make this one a quickie – cuz I know you’re hunting eggs and basting ham. 🙂

My card for today is a Clean and Simple (CAS) Card – that is quick to put together, thanks to the beautiful Delightful Daisy DSP and the new Label Me Pretty Bundle (which includes the Pretty Label punch!).

Label Me Pretty is another of those stamp sets that you might flip right by in the catalog without giving it much attention.  But I think it deserves some love…  See what happens when you use it.  Take a look-see:

So my card layout is from the Fusion challenge this week – and to some extent so is the floral theme!

And the color scheme is from Fab Friday:

I started with another of the cottage-garden design papers in the Delightful Daisy DSP and SNAILd it to a Peekaboo Peach mat.

Around the card front, I wrapped a piece of Pool Party 3/8″ Stitched Satin Ribbon, securing it in the back with scotch tape.

The next layer is a pretty Night of Navy design, also from Delightful Daisy, SNAILd on Peekaboo Peach and then SNAILd to the card front.  I wrapped a strand of Whisper White Solid Baker’s Twine over that panel.

For my sentiment, I first stamped the label image from Label Me Pretty (1 June) in Night of Navy on a piece of Whisper White card stock.  Then I used my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to position the sentiment image, which I stamped in Calypso Coral.  I punched the sentiment out with the matching (bundled!) Pretty Label Punch.

I popped my label on with a few Stampin’ Dimensionals and then, ever-so-delicately (yes, “delicate” is a term oft associated with me! 😏😎), colored the little flourishes in with my Old Olive Stampin’ Write Marker – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I used a second image from the Label Me Pretty set and used the marker-to-rubber technique.  I colored just one side of the label image with my Calypso Coral, Night of Navy and Old Olive Markers, then used my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to stamp the design in all four corners of a Whisper White panel.

I SNAILd the panel to a Peekaboo Peach mat and into my Night of Navy card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got two more of the floral images from Label Me Pretty on the front…

…and gave the envelope flap a little more of the Delightful Daisy DSP.

Et Voila!  See what I mean?  Looks like a regular old label stamp set – but…look how pretty it is!!   I’m so glad that this bundle was in the pre-pre-order!  I hope you like – and that you’ll add it to your wish list! 🙂

Finn-Fan Fix…

We took the Finn-Meister to Tractor Supply yesterday. We went to get feed – horse, dog and cat!  He went to get pettings! 🙂

Not sure he got as many as he wanted, but…a few came his way.  He was a pretty good boy – it’s really hard, though.  Lots of kids and other dogs – and he wants to see and play with all of them!

Afterwards, we stopped to get a little lunch.  Wayne went in to get our food while Finn and I stayed in the van in A/C.

Finn rested – TSC was a little tiring.

See him there in my kid-mirror??  Not sure Honda was thinking about watching a dog in the back seat, but…it’s darned handy, I must say! 🙂

But then I figured I’d get with the selfie-generation…

Aww – aren’t we so cute?!?

Stampin’ Up! April Paper Pumpkin Sneak Peek – It’s A Sara Thing!

Good morning, y’all.  It’s the weekend and it’s looking beautiful here in Georgia.   Should be some lovely sunrise services tomorrow!  

Oh yea – it’s also Tax Day.  Bleh…

So yesterday, I’d just sat down to make a card for today, when my husband came in with the mail.  And guess what he handed me?

Yup!  My April Paper Pumpkin.  Well, after all the hype – I was pretty excited to open it up and see what Sara had put together for us!  And I wasn’t disappointed!

WARNING – SPOILER AHEAD!!  If you want to savor the excitement a little longer….close your eyes and scroll down to the Finn Fann Fix!  Otherwise, read on for a peek!

I opened up the Green and Black box and found…

Enough fun goodies to make 12 cards and envelopes (and….no nekkid envelopes, either!!).

I got down to business.  This is a watercolor kit, y’all!  Guess what the free gift from Sara was?

Little watercolor pencils!  In Rich Razzleberry, Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo and Pacific Point.

She even included a watercolor brush and instructions on how to color the cards.  A few of the cards are made with emboss resist paper!

I got a little jiggy with a few of the cards – turning them on end, crookedy-izing a couple of card fronts, changing up a few sentiments.

Speaking of which…

…lots of options!

The other set uses some basic watercoloring with the pencils.  I messed up a couple of the banners – wasn’t thinking it thru very well and I was changing up sentiments.  I added the word “friend” from the Thoughtful Banner stamp set! 😉

So I ended up with 8 cards and some leftovers to use to put together a few alternatives!

I also added a few extra little splatters  – from the included stamp set – on the inside of the cards, in Melon Mambo, Pacific Point or Daffodil Delight, depending on the card front!

All in all – definitely worth the build up, y’all!  This is a really fun little kit – and one I can see buying a refill for – or even a few extra complete kits!

So…hope you were signed up in time to get this one!  It’s pretty and fun and you’re going to like it a lot.  

If you’re not a subscriber, you can still get signed up.  Click here to go right to the Paper Pumpkin website and sign up month-to-month…or here for prepaid multi-month subscriptions…and let’s get you started! 🙂  

Here’s a super video in which Sara herself shows you how to put yours together!

Enjoy! 🙂

Finn-Fan Fix…

In case you haven’t realized it, Finn is a giver.

A giver of lickings.

A giver of hair.

A giver of muddy paw prints.

And – a giver of attention.

Today – he’s sharing the spotlight with his feline brother and sister (which is actually not even possible, but – he thinks they’re related).

Leo and Katy were piled up on the back of the sofa – we call it the kitty hammock.  Usually it’s only Leo but Katy’s been coveting the spot lately.

That’s Katy laying atop her brother (they really are related!).  Leo looks thrilled, doesn’t he?  Maybe it’s because I was taking their picture…

Finn’s glad you got to see them.

See how glad?

Stampin’ Up! Lovely Inside & Out Sneak Peek!

Friday again, folks!  Hope you’ve had a great week and are looking forward to an even better weekend.  Do you all have plans for Easter?  We’re headed to our friends’ house for dinner – and a playdate for Finn!  I know he’d be looking forward to it if he could only hear something besides:  “waaa-waaa-waa-wa, Finny, waa waa-wa-waaa.  Finny wa Scout”.  But I know he’s going to have a good day! 🙂

I put together another 2017-2018 Annual Catalog sneak peek for you today.  This one is a fun little bundle called Lovely Inside & Out.  I used it and the new Lemon-Lime Twist to make a quick and easy little card to send to any friend who needs a hug.  Take a look-see:

My layout is inspired by the sketch challenge from CAS(E) This Sketch:

And I played along with the color scheme from the Color Throwdown:

I’ve been wanting to try to do something with the new Lemon-Lime Twist color since I saw it – it’s so far out of my wheelhouse…I can’t even see it from there.  But…I’m really liking it, so… this challenge gave me the excuse I needed.  I added some Calypso Coral and Crushed Curry along with it.

This is a fun set – the dies cut a negative from a piece of card stock.  You can leave it like that – or cut it with a matching die from the Ovals or Circles Layering Framelits or the Sweet & Sassy Framelits.

This card was fast and easy!

I started with a Whisper White panel and, using the fun “burst” image in the Lovely Inside & Out stamp set, I stamped a few times here and there with Crushed Curry and Lemon-Lime Twist.  Then I matted the panel on a piece of Lemon-Lime Twist.  Bold.  Yes, I know!

Next, I cut the “hugs” die from a piece of Calypso Coral card stock, then I cut that out with a 2 5/8″ Circles Layering Framelits die.

I inked up the sentiment that says “sending you” with Calypso Coral, then covered the word “you” with a sticky note and stamped it on the card front, positioning it with my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig.

Then I adhered the Lovely Words die cut with a little bit of Liquid Glue.

The little embellishment is from the Color Theory Memories & More Card Pack.  I just stuck it on the card and then added a new Crushed Curry Glitter Enamel Dot to the center.  And that was it for the card front!

On the inside, I stamped the “burst” again in Crushed Curry and Lemon-Lime Twist.  Then, cuz I’d been experimenting with the dies in the set a little bit, so I had it, I adhered “friend” with a little bit of Liquid Glue.

I SNAILd it to a Lemon-Lime Twist mat and into my Whisper White card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

On the front of my Whisper White Medium Envelope, I added a couple more “bursts”…

…and then I added even more to the envelope flap.  And – I also added a couple more sentiments from Lovely Inside & Out in Calypso Coral.

Et Voila!  I gotta say – this one grew on me.  I never would have put these colors together on my own, but…I really really love how they’re working.  And the graphic images in this little bundle are just flat fun.  Hope you like – and will add this one to your wish list! 🙂

Finn-Fan Fix…

We already know that it’s figment-season, right?

Well – those things were up to no good today!  

They required running….

Leaping…

And a lot of bounding.  Some of those figments fly – did you know that?  

Well, it’s true.  Fortunately, Finn has springs for legs and can boing his way down the trail as needed to keep them in sight.

Don’t ever expect a picture of that, y’all.  There’s no possible way I’d ever be in position to take that one!  Also, it causes me to laugh like a loon, which is tough for taking pictures!

Figment chasing is also hard work – makes a guy hot.  The only solution is….

Not quite yet, Mom.  Please?!?! 😉
