Stampin’ Up! Floral Romance Sneak Peek Thinking of You

Happy Friday, y’all!  The week’s are just flying by!  Hope you’re readier for Christmas than I am! 😳😳😳

I’ve got another sneak peek for you guys – this is one that caused quite a fuss when it was revealed at OnStage and it’ll all be available on 3 Jan with the Occasions Catalog!  It’s called the Floral Romance Suite and it. IS.  GORGEOUS!  I used the Wonderful Romance stamp set (one of the new Cling stamps!) and the bundled Wonderful Floral Framelits.  Then, borrowing some ideas from the samples in the catalog,  I added some vellum Floral Romance Specialty DSP.  Take a look-see:

I was playing along with the week’s Global Design Project challenge, which is a CASE the Designer Challenge!

I started by cutting a Whisper White panel AND a Petal Pink vellum piece of Floral Romance Specialty DSP to the same size.  Using Glue Dots – under the printed parts of the vellum – I adhered the vellum panel to the Whisper White Panel.  Then I matted the whole thing on Fresh Fig for the card front.

I stamped the sentiment from Wonderful Romance in Fresh Fig on Whisper White and cut it with a Stitched Shapes Framelits circle die, then adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

To create the wreath, I stamped the leaf image from Wonderful Romance six times on Whisper White with Mossy Meadow ink.  Then I used the Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blends (yep – new colors coming on 3 Jan in the Occasions Catalog!  Whoo-hoo!) to color the leaves.  I cut them all with the matching die in the Wonderful Floral Framelits.

I also cut some Petal Pink leaf sprays with a fun little die in the set.  And…some Mossy Meadow leaves.  This die is amazing!  When you cut the leaves – it ALSO embosses veins in them at the same time!  See them?

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the leaves around the sentiment in an oh-so-artistic wreathy way.  Then I added some little Fresh Fig Frosted Flower Embellishments (available 3 Jan) and topped them with some Share What You Love Artisan Pearls.

I tied a little bow from Petal Pink/Whisper White 5/8″ Variegated Ribbon (new on 3 Jan) and adhered it with a little dab of Liquid Glue – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped the leaf image again in Mossy Meadow on a Whisper White panel.  I surrounded it with some Petal Pink dots – this is also a stamp in the Wonderful Romance set! – and then added little dots with my Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Write Marker.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Fresh Fig mat and into my Petal Pink card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

I added more of the Wonderful Romance leaves and dots to the front of my Whisper White Medium Envelope…

…and also to the envelope flap!

Et Voila!  WOW!!  How gorgeous is this Floral Romance Suite?!  It was my number one pick in the catalog!  The Wonderful Romance stamp set features beautiful images and sentiments – and the matching Wonderful Florals Framelits makes it easy peasy to cut all that foliage out to add to your projects!  Topping it all off?  Floral Romance Specialty DSP featuring printed pinks and greens in vellum and paper.  It’s kind of the whole-deal, y’all!  Hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Well Said, Dear Doily Sneak Peek 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 color challenge and I know you’ll see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop.

A friend of mine is graduating with his Master’s degree this weekend, so I decided to make a card for him, using a couple of new 2019 Occasions Catalog products!  I pulled out the new Well Said bundle (which includes the massive 24-die Well Written Framelits set), the Incredible Like You stamp set and some Happiness Blooms Memories & More goodies!  Take a look-see:

Our color challenge was fun!  I picked Night of Navy as my Free Choice color!

I borrowed my layout from the Hand Stamped Sentiments sketch challenge this week.

I started with one of the large Happiness Blooms Memories & More Cards & Envelopes (available on 3 Jan) for my base.  I took four likely sentiments from the Well Said stamp set and add them all to an acrylic block.  Then I stamped them all over the front of the card base in Night of Navy Ink.

Next, I trimmed down one of the smaller card panels in the Happiness Blooms Memories & More Card Pack (2019 Occasions) and matted it on Gold Foil.  Then I adhered it to the side of the card front with Liquid Glue.

I adhered a Pearlized Doily with some more Liquid Glue.

The next layer is another design in the Happiness Blooms Memories & More Card Pack that I cut with the die in the Frosted Bouquet Framelits.  I cut the mat from Gold Foil with the handy die from Frosted Bouquet, and adhered them together with Liquid Glue.

I cut a Whisper White Stitched Shapes Framelits circle and stamped it in Night of Navy with a single sentiment word from Well Said, then adhered it to a Gold Foil die cut from the Doily Builder Thinlits (coming on 3 Jan).

I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the Frosted Bouquet label and the matted circle, and used them to wind a few loops of Gold Metallic Thread.  Then I popped the whole thing onto the card front.

I cut two Night of Navy sentiments with the Well Written Thinlits and adhered them with Liquid Glue.  Then I added a few gold Metallic Pearls and the card front was done.

On the inside, I added a sentiment from the Incredible Like You stamp set (another goodie coming in the Occasions catalog on 3 Jan 19) in Night of Navy on a Whisper White panel.  I added a single gold Metallic Pearl…

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Gold Foil mat and into my Happiness Blooms Card base and the card was done!

The Happiness Blooms Memories & More Card & Envelopes envelope got a couple three images from the Dear Doily set in Night of Navy on the front…

…and I didn’t have to do a durned thing to the flap – Stampin’ Up! gave it a pretty liner for me!

Et Voila!  SO many cool things in the catalog that you’ll be able to pick up on 3 Nov!  One of the most obvious “must-haves” is the Well Said bundle – chock-a-block full of sentiment die and matching images to make all sorts of wonderful sentiments of your own!   And the Dear Doily is a gorgeous set – don’t let it be a “flyover” set, okay?  Hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Precious Parcel Card Kit Sneak Peek

Happy Hawwmp Day, y’all!  Hope your week is going well and that the weather is settling down for a minute!  We finally had some very-welcome sun on Tuesday – and it got all the way up to 48!  Not quite a heat-wave, but a pretty nice day all in all!

You guys have heard the words “Sale-A-Bration”, right?  And you know that Sale-A-Bration will take place in Jan, Feb and March, yes?  AND – you know that what happens during Sale-A-Bration is….you get FREE stuff!

That’s right – you get to pick from an assortment of FREE goodies when you make purchases of Stampin’ Up! products.  There are two levels – gifts you can pick when you spend $50 and gifts you can pick when you spend $100!

One of the $50-level gifts is the Precious Parcel Card Kit!

This is one AWESOME kit, y’all!  It’s All-Inclusive.  And I do mean ALL inclusive.  You need NOTHING else to put together the eight beautiful cards.

When you open the package, you’ll see what I mean!

I got this kit with my pre-order last week and spent a few minutes putting it together.  Folks – there’s no stamping, no cutting.  Just assembling the parts and pieces.

I love these little notes – you get a slide-in notecard with beautiful flowers for the front…in two different designs.

And there’s another inside area for a note, too!

You put the card together with pre-applied adhesive strips and it forms a pocket into which you slide those gorgeous flower-dy notes!

And – cuz Stampin’ Up! just GETS me – they even decorated the envelopes!

I love love love this Precious Parcel Card Kit, y’all!  The beautiful flowers and the fun “stamp” that you attach with a little decorative paper-clip!  I think the distressed “tin”, with the gold foil corners, is just perfect.  And it’s something you could put together waiting at the doctor or for a plane.  Easy peasy.  Hope you like – and will add this to your “what I need to pick for free” list for Sale-A-Bration!

Finn Fan Fix

Finn often helps me write blog posts.  He’s quite erudite.

You probably didn’t know that about him?

So here’s how it works.

When I’m feeling a little frazzled and my creative writing juices have yielded to the stress of a work day…he shows up!

“Finn (I might say) – what should we call our friends in Blog-opia?  Blog-o-topolis?  Blog-burg?  Would they be Blog-ables?  Blog-ians?  Blog-o-topians?  Blog-burgers?”

And he often takes a moment to think.

You can just see the wheels turning, can’t you?

We’re still working on how he can communicate his considered opinion.  So far – his thoughts are only his own….

Stampin’ Up! Wishing You Well Wreath for the Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Good mornin’, y’all – welcome to another edition of Amy’s Inkin’ Krew team blog hop!  Each month we make projects centered around a theme – and this month our theme is Celebration!  We can interpret that any way we want – so…be sure to check and see everyone’s projects – we’ve got a bunch of talented ladies hopping with us this month!

I am celebrating the Christmas season with today’s card – after all, Christmas celebrates a pretty big Birthday, don’t you think?!  I used the Wishing You Well stamp set – and a sentiment from the Farmhouse Christmas stamp set – to make a beautiful Christmas wreath!  Take a look-see:

This one was just perfect for this week’s challenge over at As You See It!

I started with a piece of Festive Farmhouse DSP and matted it on some Basic Black for the card front.

My art work is a wreath that I built using the leaf-wreath image in the Wishing You Well stamp set.  I followed the instructions of Dina Kowal over at SplitCoastStampers!

I didn’t have the wreath builder template that she used, but I DID have Squares Layering Framelits – so I made one of my own from a piece of Thick Card Stock – using the largest smooth-sided square die.  Just cut out a square – then rotate the die 45 degrees and cut again!

I used Mossy Meadow and stamped the wreath 8 times – rotating my Very Vanilla card stock panel each time.  Then I repeated the process, using the flowers image in Cherry Cobbler!  Easy peasy!  This series of photos shows how I did it – I used a small flower image to practice before I graduated to the wreath!

Once I had built the wreath, I inked the Merry Christmas from the big sentiment in the Farmhouse Christmas set in Cherry Cobbler.  I used sticky notes to mask off the part of the sentiment I didn’t need.  Then I stamped the sentiment in the corner of the panel.

Once the wreath was good and dry, I inked the pretty bow from Wishing You Well in Versamark Ink and then sprinkled it with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed it with my Heat Tool.

I matted the panel on Basic Black and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

On a small piece of Very Vanilla card stock, I heat embossed the bow twice in Gold.  I fussy cut the two “loops” from one of the images and the “tails” from the other.  Then I used Liquid Glue and Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals to add them atop the bow on the wreath for some dimension!

I added some Gold Metallic Pearls to the wreath – and one next to the sentiment – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added another Wishing You Well bow in heat embossed Gold and a Farmhouse Christmas sentiment in Cherry Cobbler on a Very Vanilla panel.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Basic Black mat and then into my Mossy Meadow card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got two more gold-heat-embossed bows from Wishing You Well on the front…

…and a little more Festive Farmhouse DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  The wreath in Wishing You Well is beautiful all by itself – but…I think it really POPS when it’s thickened up and made “bushy” with the wreath-stamping technique, don’t you?  I hope you’ll give it a try – and we may do one some Sunday night soon!  And that bow will forever be one of my favorite things!  Hope you like!

Now that you’ve seen my card, I hope you’ll take a little time to jump thru all the other projects we have to share. Click any name below, or you can use the Previous Blog button to jump to Sue’s page or the Next Blog button to see what Karen’s been up to!

Stampin’ Up! Christmas Traditions Pop-Up Gift Card Holder

Morning, y’all!  Happy Monday!  I, for one, am hoping that we woke up to some sunshine and a little warmth today.  The entire weekend was entirely too yucky for us – wet and nasty.  It was the kind of weekend where you just wanted to roll over and stay in bed.  Maybe with some kind soul bringing a cup of hot chocolate.  And maybe a cookie.

Or twelve! 😉

If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video – I appreciate you spending some of your weekend with me!  If not, but would like to see how to make the pop-up gift card holder we worked on, here’s the replay!  Oh – and the last 30 minutes is all 2019 Occasions and Sale-A-Bration Catalogs Sneak Peeks!  Just sayin!

If you go out on Pinterest, you’ll find all kinds of gift card holders – and several different folks with different ways to make this pop-up version.  I took my guidance from Kristy Coromandel in Australia!

I used the cute Christmas Traditions stamp set and punch from the Christmas Traditions Punch Box in the Holiday Catalog to make mine – paired with some Festive Farmhouse DSP.  Take a look-see:

But the fun happens when you slide off the 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim belly band…

 

This one – and the others that I made last week and will show you in a second – are made with Festive Farmhouse DSP – but obviously you could change DSPs to fit a different time of year!

I used the Christmas Traditions stamp set and Punch – which come in the Christmas Traditions Punch Box.  When you buy that set, you’ll get the 6-sentiment stamp set, the Punch, a beautiful keepsake-quality 8″ square tin box to hold your supplies or creations, and a Call Me Clover and Read Red Classic Stampin’ Spot!  Whoo-hoo!!


Each card holder starts with a 4″ x 9 1/2″ piece of DSP, scored – with your trimmer or Simply Scored board – and folded…

The solid lines are folded as “valleys” and the dotted line is a “mountain” – and it’s also where you’re going to cut to create the slot for your gift card!  The video will show you exactly what I’m talking about!

My video sample used the Christmas Traditions Punch for the middle section, but you could use almost any punch that’s the right size.   On this one, I used the Darling Label punch!

These are so quick to put together – then you can decorate all willy and nilly!

I used some 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim for the belly band and bow – and some little Mossy Meadow pine boughs cut with the Night Owl Thinlits!

Take a look at some other holders I made!

I used a Galvanized Metal Button for mine – but you could use a True Gentleman Button just as easily and it would look great!

So…I don’t know about you guys, but I’ve got some folks on my list who bamboozle me a bit when it comes to picking gifts!  And – gift cards are always right.  Always the right size.  The right color.  But…sometimes they feel (to me!) like I’m sort of phoning it in – know what I mean?  On the other hand, a fun way to present the gift card helps to make it fun and a little more personal.  This one – that pops your gift card up as soon as the gift-ee opens it – is really fun!  And made even easier with the Christmas Traditions Punch Box stamp set and matching punch!  Hope you like!

AND – the Christmas Traditions Punch Box is on SALE in the Year End Clearance!  Check it out and snap it up, y’all!

Something is under the recliner.

It’s not the cat.

It’s not a mouse.

It’s not a toy.

No one knows for sure WHAT it is.

But Finn, for one, danged sure means to get it OUT!

Stampin’ Up! Gift Card Holder Video Sneak Peek!

Good morning!  Winter has struck again here in GA – it was nasty last night! Bleh.  Cold and rainy and…well…NASTY!  I even brought the horses back in a few hours early so they’d start to get dry before the temps really dropped.  Even the girls were ready to come in!

Since it’s Sunday and I’m home – we’ll get together tonight at 8pm Eastern on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page for a little video!  And we’re going to make a fun-fold that’s just perfect for Christmas time giving!  Take a sneaky-peak!

I hope you can join me – 8pm.  Eastern.  Right here!

Stamps-N-Lingers 2019 Occasions Catalog Shares Are Open

My 2019 Occasions Catalog Shares are open!  Shares are a way to get a little taste of all the new papers, ribbons, trims and embellishments in a new catalog – without buying the WHOLE catalog – which would set you back about $200!  This way – you get a sampling of everything and then you can decide what you want to buy whole-packs of!  Makes pretty good sense, huh?

Check them out here and fill out the handy form to get signed up!


The Year-End Closeout is our chance to do a little inventory cleaning—and your opportunity to take advantage of special year-end deals on retiring and surplus items.  During this promotion, you’ll be able to save on a selection of retiring and surplus items— and some are “last-chance” and limited inventory.  I suggest you place your orders sooner rather than later, because supplies are limited and the YearEnd Closeout ends on 2 January.  After that, some of your favorite retiring items may be gone for good!  Get all the details on my Stampin’ Up!

Saturday was a wash-out for the dog.

It literally rained and was nasty all day! 🙁  Which means not a lot of time outside.

But – I had to run some errands – mail catalogs, hit the hardware and Sams Club.

I asked him if he wanted to go with me…

…or stay home with his Dad.

So – since his answer was quite obvious for anyone to see…I took him with me.

This is him leaving…

And this is him after the fourth stop where he had to wait in the car…

He was finally just too disgusted to even look at me.  ESPECIALLY since the last stop was…Tractor Supply!  But – no leash in the car, so…no Man in the store! 🙁

But – he survived (if barely) and we gave him a couple of good runs in the drizzle and mud to let him blow off a little rainy-day steam!  Nothing helps make a day better than totally soaking all your pantaloonies and skirt-feathers in mud and then hurrying into the house to get dried off!

P.S.  One other rainy-day thing….take a look at some pre-order goodies that arrived while I was gone!

Stampin’ Up! Winter Woods Christmas Season

Happy Weekend!  Hope you’ve got something fun planned!  I made it home safely yesterday ahead of the next winter storm.  Whoo-hooo!  Did not get the test done that needed to be done – the plane simply wouldn’t cooperate.  But – I got a nice little road trip and saw some of my friends from our last event in CA, which was fun.  So – far from wasted for me! 🙂

I’ve got a pretty little Christmas card for you today using the wonderful Winter Woods stamp set.  I set it stop some Woodland TIEF embossing – take a look-see:

I played along with the Global-Design-Project theme challenge this week!

I started with a panel of Whisper White that I embossed in the Woodland TIEF and matted on Merry Merlot for the card front.  Around the card front, I wrapped a piece of Merry Merlot & Copper 5/8″ Reversible Ribbon, securing it in the back with Glue Dots.

On a smaller piece of Whisper White, I stamped the big pine tree image from Winter Woods in Mossy Meadow – I stamped it twice without re-inking.  Then I stamped it a third time (but that one ended up under the cut-out tree, so…you can put it on or not.  Up to you!).

I matted the smaller panel on Merry Merlot and adhered it onto the card front with Liquid Glue.

On a Window Sheet, I stamped the Winter Woods tree again in Mossy Meadow.  Be sure to go straight down and straight up – your Stamparatus will help with this!! – so that the stamp doesn’t slip and slide and smear your image!  Then WAIT for it to dry – or help it a little like I did with my Heat Tool on the lowest setting.

Once the tree was good and dry – I cut it with the die in the matching In the Woods Framelits.  I also cut a second solid tree from a piece of Sparkle Glimmer Paper.  Using Glue Dots under the stamped image (to help hide them!) – I adhered the stamped Window Sheet tree over top of the Sparkle Glimmer Paper tree!

I stamped the sentiment from the Winter Woods stamp set in Merry Merlot on Whisper White and cut it with the die from the Frosted Bouquet Framelits.  With the slightly larger die – I cut a Merry Merlot mat.  I adhered them together with Liquid Glue and then added it to the card front with more Liquid Glue.

I popped my sparkly tree over top of the whole thing with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

With some Gold Metallic Thread, I tied a knot tightly around my Merry Merlot ribbon right next to the art panel.  Then I adhered a bow, tied of the same ribbon, right over the top of that knot with a Glue Dot.  Tying the metallic thread around the ribbon makes it look like it’s a bow tied the “right” way!

And that was it for the card front!

On the inside, I added a couple of Mossy Meadow pine boughs and an Early Espresso pine cone from Winter Woods onto a Whisper White panel.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Merry Merlot mat and into my Mossy Meadow 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 more Winter Woods pine boughs and cones…

…and did the same on my envelope flap!

Et Voila!  I love this Winter Woods set – and am glad it’s carrying over!  Note:  the stamp set and In The Woods Framelits are both carrying over – but the money-saving bundled price will NOT.  So – if you want this stamp set and framelits – I’d urge you to get it now!  Hope you like!

When I arrived home on Friday, it was to a couple of big – and heavy! – boxes from Stampin’ Up!

Whaaa?!?  That almost never happens here.

Said no one ever! 😉

I’ll share the “fun goodies” pic with you soon – but…the important work inside was….2019 Occasions and Sale-a-Bration catalogs!

I’d pre-stuffed and labeled envelopes for all my customers before I left on Wednesday, so…Finn and I sat down to label and stuff the two catalogs into their envelopes.

HIS contribution was to lay sprawled behind me and push into my back with his large man-dog feet.

Guess he figured a back-rub would help?? 🙂

Anywho – “WE” got them done and they’re on their way!!  Whoo-hooo!
