Stampin’ Up! One Happy Family Batik Boutique

Good morning, y’all – happy Monday!  And…happy Last-Day-of-the-Connect-Craft-Collect-Ordering Special!  Don’t miss out – if you’ve got a lot of things on your list that you’re hoping to add to your tool box, NOW is a great time!  When you reach the $250 in retail threshold – you’ll get an ADDITIONAL $25 in Stampin’ Rewards to spend!  And there’s still time to get together with some of your friends and place a workshop order together – you can share the free goodies!  But..we gotta get that done QUICK!  The special ends at 11:50 MOUNTAIN TIME tonight!! 🙂

Now, my card today uses a few goodies that you might want to add to that order!  The pretty all-image Batik Boutique Bundle gets together with the sentiment-only One Happy Family stamp set.  And – the wonderful, go-to Scalloped Contours die set is in there, too!  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one comes from this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

And the subtle color palette is from the Color Throwdown challenge.

I started with a panel of Smoky Slate that I covered with the flower image from Batik Boutique in Smoky Slate ink for a tone-on-tone look.  Then I cut the middle out with the fourth-from-the-center die in the Scalloped Contours Die set.

I set that die cut aside for another card and adhered the remaining frame to a Balmy Blue mat with Liquid Glue to create the card front.

I cut the same size Scalloped Contours die from a piece of Basic White and stamped the sentiment from One Happy Family in Night of Navy near the bottom.

Then I popped the panel onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I used the solid die in the Batik Die set to cut the solid fan shape from Night of Navy.  Then I used the corresponding detailed die and cut it again from Balmy Blue, Night of Navy and Basic White.

Using Liquid Glue – not much, a little dab’ll do ya – I adhered the Balmy Blue die cut to the solid Night of Navy die cut.  Then I carefully stuck some Basic White die cut pieces inside.  I popped the completed shape onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Up in the corner, I added another couple of Batik die cuts with Liquid Glue.  Then I also pulled out my Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels and added a few in various sizes around the die cuts – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I ran the flower image from Batik Boutique in Smoky Slate up the side of a Basic White panel.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Balmy Blue mat and into my Night of Navy card base and the card was done.

My Basic White Medium Envelope got the Batik Boutique flower across the bottom in Smoky Slate…

…and a single image on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I really like the die cuts and stamped images in the Batik Boutique Bundle – so many color combination options for all your projects!  Go bright – go feminine – go masculine!  It’s up to you!  And One Happy Family is chock-a-block full of perfectly-sized sentiments for all sorts of needs: new baby, baby shower, congratulations, birthday!  And do NOT forget to pick up the Scalloped Contours dies.  I promise these will be your go-to dies!!

I hope you like!

What are the other bennies of a Host Club?

  • At least a $150.00 Workshop order during EACH of your host months!

Doesn’t really matter how hot it is – give this one a water bottle and he makes a beeline to the house – going all the way around the road as if he were still walking with us.  But most definitely NOT with us.

We are WAAAAY too slow!

Like the postal service of yesteryear….neither rain, nor sleet, nor wet-blanket-of-humidity will stop him from his self-appointed duty of getting that water bottle safely (ish) to the house!

But that heat DOES cause the tongue to pretty much flap in the breeze!  You gotta let it hang out there to help cool off.

Seriously with the camera right now??  I need a DRINK!  C’mon, maaaaaannnnnn!!

Stampin’ Up! Art in Bloom Dear Friend with Video Tutorial

Happy Sunday, y’all!  Hope the weekend is going well!  We ran errands yesterday and I’ve got our monthly Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Meeting today – so, that cool!  We’ve got a couple of fun projects using the Color & Contour bundle – one of my faves! – to do “together” (it’s a Zoom meeting since we’re scattered all over – yeah for the internet!!).  We always have fun at our meetings!

So – if you were able to join me last night for my Facebook live, I sure appreciate you spending part of your weekend with me!  If not, but you’d like to watch the replay to see how to make this pretty floral card, here ’tis!

I pulled out the new-to-me Art in Bloom Bundle for this one.  This bundle has THREE components – the Art in Bloom stamp set, the Bloom Die set AND the Bloom “hybrid” Embossing Folder!  I’ll explain that one in a minute!  I paired the bundle with some beautiful Hand-Penned DSP.  Take a look-see:

I played along with the Tic-Tac-Toe challenge this week (I love Tic-Tac-Toe challenges!). Across the diagonal: Die Cut – Friend – Yellow!

And it fits pretty perfectly with the Global Design Project theme challenge, too!

I started with a piece of Hand-Penned DSP in the same size as the front of my Garden Green card base (so…4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″) and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

Next up – I put a piece of Basic White cardstock into the Bloom Hybrid Embossing Folder and ran it thru my Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine.  Tip: you can use this hybrid folder two ways: you can place the appropriate die from the Bloom Die set right in the folder – WITH the card stock – and emboss and cut the flowers at the same time.  Or…you can do like I did here – leaving the die OUT and ONLY embossing!

I matted the embossed panel on Daffodil Delight and popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Using my Stamparatus, I stamped the three-bloom image from Art in Bloom in Tuxedo Black on a piece of Basic White cardstock.  Then I used the three fill images to stamp each flower with Mango Melody ink.

I placed the three-flower die from the Bloom Die set inside the Bloom Hybrid Embossing Folder, lined up the stamped image on the cardstock with the dies and ran it all thru the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine – using the sandwich for embossing with 3D folders (so…the basic platform and the gray Specialty Plate).  That produced three beautifully colored and embossed flowers to use on my project! 🙂

I stamped two leaves images from Art In Bloom in Mint Macaron on Basic White and cut them with their leaf die.  I also used the detailed leaf die to cut leaves from the Hand-Penned DSP and from Garden Green cardstock.

I popped my die cut flowers over the corresponding flowers on the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals – then tucked the leaves in with Liquid Glue.

I tied a bow using a double-length of white twine from the Baker’s Twine Essentials Pack and adhered it to the card front with a Glue Dot.

The Art in Bloom sentiment is stamped in Garden Green on Basic White, cut with a Tasteful Labels die and popped on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

A few Mint Macaron Genial Gems scattered about finished off the card front!

On the inside, I added the fun bar code image (that’s what it looks like, okay???) from Art in Bloom in Mint Macaron across the bottom of a Basic White panel.  Then I added the little three-flower image in Mango Melody.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Daffodil Delight mat and into the Garden Green card base and the card was done!

My Basic White Medium Envelope got the Art In Bloom “bar code” and flowers on the front…

…and more of the Hand-Penned DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Okay – for real.  How cool is this three-piece Art In Bloom Bundle??  The stamp set and Bloom Dies would be pretty amazing all by themselves, but…the Bloom Hybrid Embossing Folder takes it all to a new level of BAMMM!  Hand-Penned DSP just makes it all the more gorgeous. 🙂

I hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix

I managed to catch this picture the other morning.

I read somewhere that dogs will lay with their heads dangling off a bed or couch when they are relaxed and unconcerned about danger.  So..I guess Finny feels pretty safe and comfortable in his bedroom, huh?  And apparently there are also no interlopers on his radar.

And –  few things are cuter to me than down-ear dogs sacked out with their ears in up-ear position.  I think it makes them look like little foxes.

Or at least THIS one does!

Seriously.  He sleeps cuter than any dog ever!

(No offense to those of you who believe that YOUR dog is the cutest sleeper ever! 😉 )

Not Finn.

Just a gorgeous evening sky after a day of off and on rain showers (by which I mean – downpour…sun…downpour…sun….repeat!).

This was a “sun” phase as we headed to the barn to feed.

Of course – it was way wet and Finn thought that was pretty wonderful! 😉

Stampin’ Up! Sea Life Seascape Box Card Fun Fold with Video Tutorial

Hey, y’all – how’s the week been?  It’s managed to rain nearly every day this week – some pretty heavy, too.  We had the shoer here on Wednesday and we were grateful for a covered aisle, concrete floor and a big ole fan to help us stay cool.  Cuz…rain + GA Summer Heat = SAUNA!! 👀👀👀

So – if you were able to join me yesterday for my YouTube live, I sure appreciate you spending part of your day with me!  If not, but you’d like to watch the replay to see how to make this fun-fold box card, here ’tis!

I’ve been seeing this Box Card around – several of my talented Critters-N-Creatin’ Team members have been posting them on our team FB page – and I figured…better late than never, right?!  So…I looked around and found a good tutorial from Dawn Griffin and then…made it my own with the Seascape stamp set and bundled Sea Life dies!  I used Beauty of the Earth DSP for my “ocean”.  Take a look-see:

And – I think this is a perfect depiction of summer (at least it’s mine!) so…I played along with the theme challenge over at The Paper Players!

The card base itself is a piece of Mango Melody cardstock, cut at 8 1/2″ x 10″.  Then it’s scored at 2″, 3 1/2″, 6 1/2″ and 8″ along the long side.  Then I turned it 90degrees and scored at 1 1/2″ and 7″ along the short side.

Then I cut along the score lines from the short edge to remove the outer rectangles.

Next, I made a mark at the 1 1/2″ point on the long edge (between the 3 1/2″ and 6 1/2″ score lines) and used my Paper Trimmer to score diagonal lines on bothe edges.

At this point, my cardstock looked like this.  Only…you know, in Mango Melody. 😉

Then I added Tear & Tape Adhesive to the outside of the small tabs, then trimmed the tabs down – making them shorter and angled.

At this point, I made the inside of the box.

I used a piece of Misty Moonlight paper from the Beauty of the Earth DSP and stamped a Seascape sentiment in Night of Navy in the middle.  Then I added the coral image in Granny Apple Green, some fish in Calypso Coral and some awesome bubbles in Misty Moonlight.  I love those bubbles!

I matted the panel on Granny Apple Green and adhered it to the inside of the yet-to-be-folded card base with Liquid Glue.

I folded and burnished all the scored lines and adhered the card together with the Tear & Tape – as shown in the video – gently pushing the top in, using the diagonal score lines to create the fold!

For the front, I cut another piece of the Beauty of the Earth DSP and stamped the coral and fishes and bubbles – then I cut it in half and adhered both pieces to Granny Apple Green mats and then to the front panels of the card.

 

I used the dies in the Sea Life die set to cut a seahorse and a coral from a piece of Rainbow Glimmer Paper and a second coral from a piece of Mango Melody Ombre Specialty Paper.

I created a belly-band with a narrow strip of Granny Apple Green that I wrapped sort of loosely around and secured at the front with Liquid Glue.

Then I used Liquid Glue to adhere the die cut seahorse and coral to the bellyband – being careful to NOT get any glue on the card front!

I stamped a second Seascape sentiment in Night of Navy on another piece of the same Beauty of the Earth DSP and added some Misty Moonlight bubbles.  Then I cut it with a die from the Hippo & Friends Die set.

I adhered the sentiment to the belly-band decorations with Liquid Glue.

I pulled out the Artistry Blooms Adhesive-Backed Sequins and added some to the sentiment and the card front – and to the inner liner, too – and the card was done!

My Basic White Medium Envelope got the coral, fishes and bubbles from Seascape on the front…

…and more of the Beauty of the Earth DSP – complete with bubbles! – on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Isn’t this such a fun…fold?  I love that it makes a little box – big enough for a gift card or some cold, hard cash! 😉  Box Cards have sort of been making the rounds on Facebook and Pinterest, so I hope you’re going to give it a go.  And if you do – I think this combination of Beauty of the Earth DSP and the Seascape bundle is a perfect decoration to make a cool underwater ocean scene!

I hope you like!

Use this host code when you order $50 or greater and receive a free gift (AND the Monthly Card Tutorial) from me!  If your order is over $150, please do not use this code, but you’ll still get the free gift.  The free gift is your choice of any item valued up to $10.00 in any active Catalog!  That includes some of the Host Exclusive stamp sets!  See my Customer Rewards page for full details.

Note: Make sure that you can see my name on the final checkout page listed as your Demonstrator when you order so that you know that you’re ordering with me and you’ll get my rewards!

You’ll also be getting a link to my ZOOM The Craftroom (an exclusive TWICE-A-WEEK online event for my customers) and the monthly Online Tutorial.  The June Tutorial features the Quiet Meadow Bundle!  


Openings Available in Host Clubs Starting on 1 July! 

How does it work?

A club consists of three folks doing two consecutive three-month terms.   Each person commits to buying $50 before shipping and tax each month.

You sign up for two consecutive 3-month terms and commit to:

  • A $50.00 minimum order each month
  • Placing your order by the 20th of each month
  • Using the Host code for each month that I send to you in an email at the beginning of each month

Here’s how it shakes out…this is just an example!  As you can see, each member gets to host TWICE during the six months!!

At the end of the club, I let each member select a stamp set up to $25 that I send to them for free.

What are the other bennies of a Host Club?

  • At least a $150.00 Workshop order during EACH of your host months!
  • Which means you’ll have at least $15.00 of Stampin’ Rewards dollars to spend on the exclusive Host Stamp Sets, or any other current Stampin’ Up! product during your host months.  Stampin’ Rewards are Stampin’ Up!-speak for “free money”!
  • You’ll earn DOUBLE PEPPERMINTS on your Host Club Orders.  Each $50 order earns 4 reward points, a $75 order earns you 6 reward points, etc. You’ll earn at least 24 reward points during your membership, meaning you’ll automatically earn at least ONE $40 Peppermint rewards gift!  (Remember – when you gather up 16 Peppermints, you get to select a free reward gift valued up to $40!).  You can get more info about my Punkin’ Heads Customer Rewards Program right here.
  • You’ll receive a FREE monthly tutorial with 4-5 projects and access to all previous tutorials for the duration of the club. Right now, there are over FIFTY tutorials available only to Online Host Club members.  That’s around TWO HUNDRED SEVENTY not-seen-on-our-blogs projects for you to use as inspiration (and they ALL have all the card cuts and instructions!)
  • Access to my Weekly Zoom The Craftroom online Zoom Party – where you can come craft and chat with me and other customers!
  • FREE catalogs during your membership term
  • FREE shipping in your TWO Host Months
  • A FREE STAMP SET of your choice valued up to $25 at the end of each “term”, any current set (excluding host sets)!
  • At the end of the full 6 months, you’ll get first dibs at signing up for the next 6 month term!

When you join the club – you’ll commit to the full six months – in two consecutive three-month increments.   This is a great time to join a club – with the new Annual Catalog, the pending August release of the 2021 Jul-Dec Mini Catalog and the second SALE-A-BRATION fixin’ to start in August, too!

Don’t delay – there are limited spaces available!

Finn Fan Fix

Well.  The Battle of the Mats was borne – and lost – on Wednesday.

He went pretty bravely – I mean, a ride’s a ride, right??

…but it went down the tubes pretty fast.

The mats were pretty much impervious to all our potions and combing and thinning.  We spa-day’d him for almost an hour and a half.

We were ALL over it at that point and so I let him get down and we dried him off.

In the end, he was squeaky, shiny clean.  The top of him looks all good and silky!

…and he’s as beautiful and handsome as ever…

…but when you pet him it’s abundantly clear that….the mats won.  Big time.

And – he’s a more convinced than ever that humans are goofy.  I mean….MOM gets all excited when it’s spa day – like she loves it or something!

He’s not seeing the appeal. 😉

Stampin’ Up! Smooth Sailing Home with Video Tutorial

Hey, y’all – how’s the weekend going?  We had rain yesterday – which we rather desperately needed.  And it cooled it down for a bit – sort of like a swamp cooler does – cooler AND more humid! 🙂  But the plants and veggies were all mostly glad for a drink – and I was glad they got one that I didn’t have to give them!

So – if you were able to join me yesterday for my Facebook Live, I sure appreciate you spending part of your weekend with me!  If not, but you’d like to watch the replay to see how to make this card, here ’tis! Oh – and I DID also share some sneak peeks of the goodies from the Jul – Dec 2021 Mini Catalog that I got while we were in Maui.  Just sayin’!
