Stampin’ Up! Gather Together Gilded Autumn with Video Tutorial for The Paper Players

Hey y’all – it’s Sunday, which means I’ve got another fun challenge for you from the Paper Players – Jaydee’s got a cool sketch challenge for us this week.  It’s a good one –  that I know will give your creative mojo a bump!  So I hope you’ll come and play along with us!

If you were able to join me yesterday for my Facebook Live video, I appreciate you spending some of your weekend with me!  If you weren’t able to watch the live version, but you’d like to see the replay on YouTube…here ’tis!

I used one of my favorite bundles of all time – the Gather Together stamp set with its gorgeous Gathered Leaves dies!  And I also brought out some In Good Taste and Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP.  Take a look-see:

And here’s our Paper Players badge – I hope you’ll come and play along! 🙂

 

The color palette is from this week’s Color Throwdown Challenge!

And I also played along with the Global Design Project theme challenge.

I started with some barnwood paper from the In Good Taste DSP (on sale now – but only thru the end of the month!) that I matted on Cajun Craze for the card front.

Next up – I cut three Stitched Rectangle Die cuts from two different foil-embossed patterns in the Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP and adhered them to the card front with Liquid Glue.  Tip:  adhere the middle rectangle first – then add the other two equi-distant on either side of the first one.

Using all three of the awesome cutting and embossing leaf dies from the Gathered Leaves Dies, I cut one of each from two different shades of Brushed Metallic Card stock.

I also cut a few Very Vanilla berries using the die from my berry-go-to set…the Poinsettia Dies.

On a piece of Very Vanilla, I stamped the large leaf from Gather Together in stamped-off-once Crumb Cake.  Then I added a sentiment in Cajun Craze and cut it out with the matching Gathered Leaves die.

I built the collage with the metallic leaves and Very Vanilla berries – all with a Gold Hoop Embellishment as a focal piece.  I used Liquid Glue for all the leaves and a couple of Glue Dots for the hoop.  Tip:  You can see that some of the leaves are on top of the hoop and some under.  That’s a fun way to add some depth and interest to your collages!

Finally, I added the sentiment leaf with a few Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered a final Brushed Metallic card stock leaf to the sentiment.  I ran two lengths of Linen Thread thru the top of an Acorn Trinket and tied a bow.  Then I adhered it with a Glue Dot.

A few Gold Metallic Pearls nestled here and there finished off the card front.

On the inside. I added a stamped-off-TWICE Crumb Cake leaf in the middle of a Very Vanilla panel.  Then I stamped a second sentiment in Cajun Craze over the top.  I added a single gold Metallic Pearl to finish it off.  Who says embellishments can’t be on the INside?? 😉

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Cajun Craze mat and into my Crumb Cake card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got another Crumb Cake leaf on the front…

…and a little more pumpkin-strewn Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP on the envelope flap!

Et Voila!  Really.  Is it any wonder this Gather Together set – with the wunnermus Gathered Leaves dies – is one of my favorites….EVER??  I mean – it’s like Stampin’ Up! made this just for me!  And…for you!  Cuz you NEED this bundle (and it IS bundled – for a savings of 10%.  I hope it keeps going into the next Annual Catalog – but even if it does – I am betting it won’t be bundled!!).

I hope you like!

If you want to recreate this card – all the Stampin’ Up! products you need are listed down below along with the card cuts!

Finn Fan Fix 

It happened.

The worst.

It WASN’T all about pony spa days.

There was an agenda.  A hidden one.

An….EVIL one!

Yes.  We rode the ponies on Saturday.

For like…15 minutes.

Longest.  Fifteen.  Minutes. Of their LIVES!

The horror.

Finn was safely in the house so he wouldn’t inadvertently cause any….unexpectedness!  😉

Stampin’ Up! Gather Together for a Video Tutorial Sneak Peek!

‘Sup, y’all?!?  Having a good weekend?  As I type this on Friday evening, we’re hearing that we’ve got some rain coming tomorrow.

Yeah?

I did notice my garden looking a little dry on Friday, so I guess I’ll be happy to let the weather water them for me!  I’ll spend the day getting caught up on cards.  And we’ve got a brisket in the fridge that will go in the smoker first thing.  So…YUM!

What I DO know for sure, is that I’ll be going live tonight at 7pm Eastern on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page.  We’re going to make a fun Fall/Thanksgiving card – with some of my favorite things from one of my favorite bundles.  Here’s a sneaky peek!

I’m betting you can get a pretty good idea what you might see on this card, huh? 😉

Well – come check your guesses tonight.  7pm Eastern.  Right here!

Stampin’ Up! Dragonfly Garden Sneak Peek Thank You with Video Tutorial

Good morning and happy Friday!  October is winding down – meaning November is right around the corner!  Yikes!  I passed up bags of cranberries yesterday at the grocery store.  Stopped.  Considered.  Decided there was plenty of time.  Fingers crossed that that is true and there’s not the Great Cranberry Shortage of 2020 – just to tie a bow on this year! 🙂

If you were able to join me yesterday for my YouTube live, I appreciate you spending some time with me – if not, but you’d like to see the replay, here ’tis! 🙂

This card is big sneak peek!  One of the cool little perks we Demonstrators get is early looks at new products – and THIS one is VERY new – and was only available to the demonstrators who are attending our Virtual conference coming up in a couple of weeks!

It’s a brand new suite, called Dragonfly Garden – that YOU will get to see in the Jan – Jun 2021 Mini Catalog! 🙂

Yes.  THAT’S just around the corner, too! 😳😳😳😳  WHOO-HOO!!

Check out this wonderful stamp set!  And – yes.  It has a bundled….PUNCH!!  Of two dragonflies!  Whaaaa?!?

And the accompanying 6″ x 6″ DSP – called Dandy Gardens is….gorgeous!!

AND – there’s also Mossy Meadow 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim and tiny, adorable….LADYBUG TRINKETS!!

Yeah.  Ladybug.  Trinkets.

I didn’t use them on this card.  But I will.  Oh yes – I will! 😉

Okay – that’s a LOT of lead-up for my sneak peek!  I used the Stampin’ Up! Dragonfly Garden set and the bundled Dragonflies Punch, with some of the Dandy Garden DSP for this one!

The layout for this one is from the Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge!

I started with a Crumb Cake card base and adhered a Subtle 3D Embossed Crumb Cake panel to the front with Liquid Glue.  Remember – that’s a great way to make your card LOOK like you ran the front of it thru an embossing folder…but without the resulting warping that often happens when you do that! 🙂

Next, I used the next-to-largest Stitched Rectangle Die to cut two pieces of the Dandy Gardens 6″ x 6″ DSP.  I adhered them to the card front at a jaunty angle using Liquid Glue.

On a piece of Whisper White, I stamped the Dragonfly Garden sentiment in Calypso Coral.  Over that, I added some of the little…bugs (there’s debate over the species of these bugs – are they lightning bugs?  Dragonflies? No-see-ums?  Large gnats?  Small gnats?  No one is sure.  So – “bugs”)…in stamped off once Bumble Bee!

Then I cut the sentiment with the next-to-largest circle Stitched Shapes die.  I laid it where I wanted it on the card base – and used a pencil to mark the back.  Then I trimmed that little edge off with my Paper Trimmer.  Check the video if that was totally gibberish! 😉

 

I pulled out the Poinsettia Dies and the Autumn Essentials Dies and cut some Calypso Coral berries (x2) and Bumble Bee wheat stalks (one of each).   These are adhered to the card front with Liquid Glue.  Then I popped the trimmed sentiment on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I used some Stampin’ Seal to adhere loops of that yummy Mossy Meadow 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim.

On another piece of Whisper White, I stamped the large dragonfly in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  When it was dry, I colored it with my Light Misty Moonlight Stampin’ Blend.  I used the Color Lifter in the middle of the wings to lighten the color and make it a little more dimensional.  Then I punched him out with the Dragonflies Punch.

Speaking of – I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop the dragonfly onto the card front.

I punched out two teensy Calypso Coral dragonflies (with the punch!) and added them with Liquid Glue.

Finally, I colored some Rhinestone Basic Jewels with my Dark Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blend – and added them to the card front – and…that was it!

On the inside, I added the gorgeous wildflowers image from Dragonfly Gardens twice in Mossy Meadow.  I added more Bumble Bee “bugs”, too!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Bumble Bee mat and into the Crumb Cake card base and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more of the wildflowers and bugs on the front…

…and I put a little more of the Dandy Gardens DSP on the envelope flap!

Et Voila!  How MUCH do you love Stampin’ Up’s Dragonfly Gardens??  And the bundled Dragonflies Punch – yes, please!  I think – nope…I KNOW this one is going to be wildly popular and I can’t wait for y’all to be able to get your hands on it! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Ornamental Merry Hello 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 Pick-3-Colors challenge – 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!

I saw “Christmas” when I saw the five colors we had to choose from this week and decided to pull out the Ornamental Envelopes Bundle and A Merry Hello stamp set (which is a host-exclusive set!).  I added some Heartwarming Hugs DSP and…take a look-see:

Here’s our five colors – I pretty much chose Real Red, Bumble Bee and Old Olive!

I also used the sketch from this week’s CAS(E) This Sketch challenge!

I started with a piece of Whisper White for the card front.  Using my Stamparatus, I stamped the top five ornaments from the large image in Ornamental Envelopes in Bumble Bee.  I did that by carefully inking just the ornaments that I wanted to stamp.

I adhered a panel of Heartwarming Hugs DSP to the bottom of the panel with Liquid Glue.

Next, I wrapped a length of Real Red 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim twice around the panel – securing it in the back with Glue Dots.  Then I tied a bow around the trim on the front.

I popped the panel onto a Bumble Bee mat with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a piece of Whisper White, I stamped a sentiment from A Merry Hello twice – once in Bumble Bee and once in Old Olive.  I fussy cut the word “merry” from the Old Olive version.

Using one of the smallish dies in the Envelopes Dies – I cut the Bumble Bee version.  I edged the resulting sentiment “ornament” with my Bumble Bee Stampin’ Write Marker.

Then I popped the fussy cut sentiment in place with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals and used a couple more Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop the sentiment over the wrapped Linen Trim.

Using my Bumble Bee Stampin’ Write Marker – the fine-tip end – I added a few little dots above the popped on sentiment (to mimic the “hangars”).

I added some stars and small dots from the All The Trimmings Embellishments and the card front was done.

On the inside, I added a second sentiment from A Merry Hello in Old Olive ink onto a Whisper White panel.  Then I added three small ornaments from the Ornamental Envelopes set in Bumble Bee ink.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Bumble Bee panel and into my Old Olive card base, added the card front with more Liquid Glue and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more small ornaments on the front…

…and more of the Heartwarming Hugs DSP on the envelope flap.  THEN – this is fun! – I used a die in the Envelope Dies to cut a scallop edge in the bottom of the flap!

Et Voila!  I love the Ornamental Envelopes bundle – with it’s fun Envelope Dies, don’t you??

And – A Merry Hello is a sweet little host-exclusive stamp set!

I hope you like!

If you’d like to recreate this card, all the products and card cuts are listed below!

Stampin’ Up! Joy To The World October Paper Pumpkin Kit

Happy happy Hawwmp Day, y’all!  Hope your week is going well!  My days are flying by – we’ve got our Stampin’ Up! OnStage At Home event the first weekend in November (and TWELVE of my CNCK team are attending – virtually! – with me!) and then the weekend after that is our friend’s wedding!  We’ve got a cool house rented on Pawley’s Island – right on the beach!  🙂  Busy days ahead and then we’re gonna blink and…CHRISTMAS!!

Speaking of Christmas, my October Joy To The World Paper Pumpkin kit arrived last weekend and I put the eight gorgeous Christmas cards together right quick last night!  This kit is really beautiful – and even left me some extra pieces to make a bonus goodie!  Check out these beauties:

Like all Paper Pumpkin kits – this one included an exclusive stamp set and an Ink Spot (in Just Jade!).  I love this Joy To The World set – and it’s even got an inside sentiment!

The kit makes eight cards – four each of 2 designs- all with Crumb Cake/Gold Foil card bases – and eight envelopes with pretty liners!

One of the fun – included! – pieces is a spool of Cherry Cobbler Linen Thread.  Yes, please! 🙂

And – this is a “global” kit, so – while the sentiments in the stamp set are all in English for us, the included gold foil die cuts are in English, French and German!  And SU! even includes a “translation”!  You get two of each sentiment!

The colors in the set – Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Just Jade, Soft Sea Foam – are so beautiful – and are perfect with all the subtle gold touches!

I used my Stamparatus to make short work out of stamping the inside sentiment in all eight cards – plus the pretty wreath, stamped in Just Jade, with Cherry Cobbler berries!

I also added the wreath to the fronts of all the envelopes…

…but I didn’t have to do a thing on the back – each envelope is lined with a script-strewn Cherry Cobbler DSP!

Once I had all the cards and envelopes done – I had a few die cuts, sentiments and Linen Thread leftover, so…I made a gift box for my cards!

I embossed a piece of Whisper White card stock in the Scripty 3D Embossing Folder and matted it on Just Jade.  This is adhered with Liquid Glue to the top of my gift box.  I made the bottom of the box from Crumb Cake and the lid in Early Espresso! I adhered the die cuts with Liquid Glue and Dimensionals – and added a double bow with a Glue Dot!

So – quick like a bunny – I had a gift all ready to go!  We’ll make a box in a future video, I promise!

In case you’d like to see how this kit goes together, here’s the reveal on YouTube! 🙂

If you’re not a Paper Pumpkin subscriber, but would like to give it a try, you can either sign up for a subscription where you’re billed monthly for your kit or you can purchase a prepaid subscription in my online store.  For more info and to get signed up for the monthly kit – click here.  Or, see the options for prepaid subscriptions in my online store here.

Stamps-N-Lingers Packaging Stock Up Special Sale Starts Now!

Good morning, y’all!  About ready for Christmas?

I totally am.  I have all my shopping done – my Christmas cards are all made, addressed and ready to mail.  I have wrapped all the gifts I’m giving in a manner that would make Martha Stewart pea-green with envy and awestruck with admiration.  I’ve planned my menu for Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve AND New Year’s Day.  AND I’m developing a new recipe for a romantic dessert for Valentine’s Day.

Whew!  If absolutely even ONE part of that had been anything more than total and complete fiction from the mind of a crazy woman then….I WOULD. BE. AMAZING!

No – I’m for sure not that far ahead and I’m sort of assuming that you aren’t either!  But – that ticking clock you hear in your head says it’s time to be thinking about the gifting – packaging – mailing you need to do, am I right?

So…I’m here today to help you with PART of the Holiday-Season-Prep-Frenzy with….my annual….
