Stampin’ Up! #ELFIE 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 Hop is a sketch challenge – and I’m excited to see what everyone comes up with –  I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop!

I’ve been looking at the adorable #ELFIE stamp set for a minute now – and finally decided it was PAST TIME to get it inky!  So…I did and paired it up with the pretty (and sparkly!) Let It Snow Specialty DSP.  Take a look-see:

And here’s our sketch! 🙂

I started with some of the Let It Snow Specialty DSP, matted on Flirty Flamingo for the card front – and for the next layer of the card as well.  All adhered with Liquid Glue!

For the sentiment panel, I used a piece of Whisper White.  Near the bottom, I stamped a sentiment from #ELFIE in Real Red.  On the other corner – there are two presents from the set, stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.

I colored the presents with my Dark Pool Party and Light Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends.

I added snowflakes – from #ELFIE – in Pool Party across the remainder of the panel.  Using my Real Red Stampin’ Write Marker, I made some of the snowflakes red to mirror the DSP panel.

I matted the panel on Flirty Flamingo and added a length of Shaded Spruce/Gold 3/8″ Striped Ribbon, securing it with SNAIL and Glue Dots.

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

On another piece of Whisper White, I stamped the cute #ELFIE image in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored him with my Stampin’ Blends: Light and Dark Shaded Spruce and Real Red; Dark Pool Party; Light Pineapple Punch; and Ivory.  Then – I fussy cut him!

I popped him onto the card front with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals – added a couple of Red Basic Rhinestone Jewels (his buttons!) – and the card front was done.

On the inside, I stamped a second sentiment in Real Red on a Whisper White panel.  Then I surrounded it with more Pool Party snow – touching up some of the flakes with my Real Red Stampin’ Write Marker.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Flirty Flamingo mat and into my Real Red card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more snow on the front…

…and more of the Let It Snow Specialty DSP on the envelope flap!

Et Voila! #ELFIE looks pretty confident, doesn’t he – as he lounges under the Workshop sign, that Santa will be all ready in just a couple of months (wait…WHAT!?!)!  And I love the color combination, inspired by the pretty Let It Snow Specialty DSP.  I hope you like! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Beauty & Joy Thankful Card

Good morning, y’all! Yes – it’s Hawwmp Day.

But – more importantly – it’s September 11.

Please take some time today to REMEMBER.  We must never ever forget, my friends.  Take a few minutes of silence – particularly at the times the aircraft hit the buildings – 8:46….9:03….9:37…and 10:03.  Think back to where you were – think of the days afterward and the eerie silence of the skies.  Of watching the television in horror and…disbelief.  Of feeling insecure within the borders of our country.

Never.  Forget.

Okay – now.  On to less weighty subjects…

So – my card today is a fun one that uses the baby wipe technique!  I used it to create a Fall-themed Thank You card – or a Thanksgiving card – with the Beauty & Joy stamp set and some Brightly Gleaming Specialty DSP.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one – and the colors and theme! – are from this week’s FUSION challenge.  I used both sides!

I started with a piece of Crumb Cake card stock that I embossed in the new Stylish Scroll Embossing Folder.  I cut it down to size and used a sponge to brush Celestial Copper Delicata Ink over the raised areas.  Then I matted it on Mossy Meadow for the card front!

The center DSP panel is a piece of Mossy Meadow and Copper foil paper from the Brightly Gleaming Specialty DSP, matted on Mossy Meadow and adhered to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I pulled out a Baby Wipe and laid it out on my Silicone Craft Sheet.  Then I used Daffodil Delight, Crushed Curry and Mango Melody Re-Inkers to drop color onto the wipe – which I then used as an “ink pad”. 🙂

I inked the leaves image from Beauty & Joy with the Baby Wipe “pad” and stamped it on a piece of Very Vanilla card stock.  I added the “trunk” image in Soft Suede and the pot in Crumb Cake.  Then I cut it with a Stitched Label die.

I popped the art onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped some more leaves on another piece of Very Vanilla and fussy cut a few of them – then I adhered them in a little “pile” at the base of the pot with a little Liquid Glue.

Using a length of Cajun Craze Linen Thread (from the Come to Gather Ribbon Combo Pack) and a length of Linen Thread – I tied a simple bow and adhered it to the art panel with a little Liquid Glue.

I stamped the Beauty & Joy sentiment in Mossy Meadow on Very Vanilla and cut it with the Classic Label Punch – then popped it onto the card front with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a Star Designer Element to the sentiment and the card front was done!

On the inside, I repeated the Fall leaves across the bottom of a Very Vanilla panel.  Tip:  be sure to clean off your stamp between each ink/stamp step.  Otherwise, the colors will get all muddied up.  And no one has time for muddy leaves! 😉  I added a few Star Designer Elements, too.

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

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got more Beauty & Joy Fall leaves across the front…

… and I added some more of the pretty Brightly Gleaming Specialty DSP to the envelope flap!

Et Voila!  This Beauty & Joy stamp set is – in my opinion! – one of the 2019 Holiday Catalog’s “fly-over” sets.   Easy to overlook and dismiss.  But…it’s so pretty – and versatile – with images and sentiments for Fall/Thanksgiving and Christmas!  With the Christmas Gleaming Specialty DSP – in Mossy Meadow, not the expected Night of Navy or Pretty Peacock! – it’s a perfect card for the season!  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Gather Together a Monster Bash for the Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Good morning, 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 Halloween Fun!  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 decided to do a Fall-ish Halloween card – sort of “serious” and sort of “fun”.  So…I pulled out the Gather Together and Spooktacular Bash Bundles – plus some Monster Bash DSP.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is courtesy of the CAS(E) This Sketch challenge this week.

I started with some Crushed Curry paper from the Monster Bash DSP that I matted on Cajun Craze for the card front.

With the Gathered Leaves Dies from the Gather Together Bundle, I cut several leaves from Crushed Curry, Cajun Craze and Pumpkin Pie card stock.  Tip:  use a Stampin’ Spritzer to dampen the card stock before cutting the leaves.  The dies will be able to do their embossing much better that way.  And – when you take the cut and embossed leaves out of the dies, you can gently curl them with your fingers!  Perfect Fall leaves!

I used the Gather Together stamps to stamp the two pumpkin images in Cajun Craze on Pumpkin Pie cardstock.  Then I fussy cut them (versus using the dies because I wanted no-border pumpkins!).  I colored them with my Light and Dark Pumpkin Pie and Dark Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends.

For the little ghouls – I just fussy cut a couple of likely spook-ies from the Monster Bash DSP.

Using Liquid Glue, I built up the collage with leaves, pumpkins and ghoulies!

I stamped the Spooktacular Bash sentiment in Cajun Craze on Whisper White and cut it with an Ornate Frames Die.  Then I popped it on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I used two lengths of Cajun Craze Linen Thread from the Come To Gather Ribbon Combo Pack to tie a simple bow, which I adhered with a dab of Liquid Glue.  A few Pumpkin Pie rhinestones from the Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels finished off the card front!

On the inside, I used my Stamparatus to add a second Spooktacular Bash sentiment in Cajun Craze on Whisper White.  I stuck a Pumpkin Pie Rhinestone next to the sentiment.  I also added a few pumpkins from Gather Together in Cajun Craze – coloring them with the Pumpkin Pie and Soft Suede Blends.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Cajun Craze panel 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 more Gather Together pumpkins on the front…

…and more of the Monster Bash DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This particular Monster Bash DSP – and those little ghoulies – look like something Mr. Disney would put in the Haunted Mansion, don’t you think?  And I can just see them in the courtyard outside the ride, surrounded by Fall-inspired Gathered Leaves and Gather Together pumpkins!  With the addition of the Spooktacular Bash sentiments…we’ve got a fun Fall scene for Halloween!  I 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 Amy’s page or the Next Blog button to see what Karen’s been up to!

Stampin’ Up! Feels Like a Frosty Snow Front

Good Monday, y’all!  Sorry if “Good Monday” is still an oxymoron for you! 😉

Before we get going – don’t miss out on your chance to earn Double Peppermints, okay?  Today and tomorrow is all that’s left!  JS.

My card today is a frosty one – using the gorgeous and wunnermus Feels Like Frost Specialty DSP and the Snow Front stamp set.  With an assist from the Memories of Home set for some sentiments!  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one comes from the Mojo Monday sketch challenge!

I started with a Whisper White panel that I embossed in the Woodland Embossing Folder.  Then I matted it on Smoky Slate for the card front.

Next up – the gorgeous Feels Like Frost Specialty DSP – also matted on Smoky Slate and adhered to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I wrapped a length of Seaside Spray 1/4″ Metallic Ribbon around the card front, securing it in the back with Glue Dots.

To create the art/sentiment, I stamped a sentiment from the Memories Of Home stamp set in Pretty Peacock on a small Whisper White rectangle.  With the images from the Snow Front stamp set – I created my scene!  The cabin is stamped in Crumb Cake.  The snow in front in stamped-off-once Seaside Spray.  I added some mountains/sky in stamped-off-once Balmy Blue.  Finally – in stamped-off-once Shaded Spruce, a few trees finished it all off!  Stamping off is a great way to soften an image, don’t you think?

I matted the panel on Smoky Slate, then popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

A small bow, tied with the Seaside Spray 1/4″ Metallic Ribbon is adhered with a Glue Dot – and the front of the card was finished up with a single Pretty Peacock gem from the Noble Peacock Rhinestones pack.

On the inside, I stamped a second Memories of Home sentiment in Pretty Peacock on a Whisper White panel.  Then I added the snowy Snow Front scene – and another Pretty Peacock gem! – in the corner.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Smoky Slate mat and into my Balmy Blue card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another Snow Front scene on the front…

…and another piece of the Feels Like Frost Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  It’s hard not to love that Feels Like Frost Specialty DSP, isn’t it?  And I think the Snow Front stamp set – which is an image-only set! – is a wonderful jumping-off point for lots of winter projects.  Finally, since we needed a good sentiment…Memories of Home just felt…perfect!   I hope you like!

I mentioned that we (Wayne, Finn and I), worked on Shares on Saturday.

Wayne helped and Finn “helped”.  Please notice the distinction!

But, in the end…everything was packed and tucked into a few of my perfectly sized Thirty One Large Utility Totes – ready to go to the PO today.

…and Wayne and the Man….enjoyed a well-deserved break!

Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Beauty and Peaceful Boughs

Good morning, my friends!  Hope your weekend is going wonderfully!! 🙂

If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video – I appreciate you spending part of your weekend with me!  If not – but you’d like to see the replay, here ’tis!

I pulled out the so beautiful Nature’s Beauty stamp set and added a couple of Peaceful Boughs sentiments and Beautiful Boughs pine boughs to make this one!  Take a look-see:

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

I started with a Crumb Cake panel and stamped the bough image from Peaceful Boughs in Crumb Cake all over it – then matted it on Early Espresso for the card front.

I cut the largest circle Stitched Shapes Die in Early Espresso and used Liquid Glue to adhere it to the card front.

On a second piece of Crumb Cake, I stamped the deer image from Nature’s Beauty in Early Espresso.  Around her I added snow from the Peaceful Boughs set in stamped-off-once Crumb Cake.  I also added some winter grasses from Nature’s Beauty in Crumb Cake.  Then I cut her out with the same size Stitched Shapes Die and adhered it with Liquid Glue.

I used the Beautiful Boughs Die set to cut out some Shaded Spruce and Vellum card stock boughs, which I adhered to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I stamped the sentiment from Peaceful Boughs in Early Espresso on Crumb Cake and cut it with the label die in the Beautiful Boughs Die set – and popped it over the boughs with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut two solid pine cones from Crumb Cake and two detailed pine cones from Early Espresso and adhered them together.  Then I used Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals and Liquid Glue to adhere them to the card front.

I tied a small bow from Real Red 1/8″ Curly Ribbon and adhered it with a Glue Dot.  A Red Rhinestone Basic Jewel on the sentiment banner finished off the card front!

On the inside, I used my Stamparatus to stamp a second sentiment from Peaceful Boughs in Early Espresso on a Crumb Cake panel.  Over the top – in stamped off TWICE Crumb Cake, I added the deer and pine boughs image.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to an Early Espresso mat and into my Real Red card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got the Nature’s Beauty scene on the front in Crumb Cake…

..and I added more of the Peaceful Boughs pines to the envelope flap!

Stampin’ Up! Joy of Giving Tags and The 2019 Holiday Kits!

Good Friday, y’all!  The week has gone again and the weekend is upon us!

I’m expecting my 2019 Holiday Shares order to arrive today so I’ll spend the weekend cutting and chopping – all things being equal it all ought to go out on Monday.  Unless I messed something up in my order – which I’m not going to say has never happened, cuz it totally has! Fingers crossed, y’all!! 😉

So – one of the cool things – well THREE cool things, really! – in the 2019 Holiday Catalog are some amazing kits!  We’ve got the Joy of Giving Tag Kit, the Christmas Countdown Project Kit and the Most Wonderful Time Product Medley!

Yesterday I sat down and spent about an hour with the awesome Joy Of Giving Tag Kit – and at the end, I had thirty (yep – you read that right…THIRTY!) wonderful gift tags!  Take a look-see:

The first thing you see when you open the shipping box is…

No – it didn’t come with the ribbon – I quick wrapped mine with some new Basic Black 3/8″ Scalloped Edge – just to show you the possibilities! How pretty is that?  Perfect for gift giving just like this.

When you open it up – it’s got EVERYTHING.  This is an All-Inclusive kit – so it’s got a Poppy Parade Ink Spot, Glue Dots and Dimensionals, Linen Thread and even an acrylic block.  All for just $35.  Sounds like the PERFECT gift to me, y’all!!

You create ten tags each of three different designs….

When you’re done – you’ll still have the cool stamp set in your tool box to make more tags and cards!

I really love this kit, y’all!  And think I may just have to get another one for myself – and a few for birthday gifts! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! gave us some videos about the kits in the 2019 Holiday Catalog – check them out!

First up – the Joy of Giving Tag Kit!

Then there’s the Christmas Countdown Kit.  This one is a “Project Kit” – which means you’ll need to purchase the stamp set (of the same name!) separately, and also provide Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso, and Mossy Meadow Classic Ink, SNAIL and Dimensionals!

Check out this video about the Christmas Countdown Project Kit!

I’ve seen folks who’ve done Halloween on the other side of the drawers!  TWO Holidays – ONE countdown calender!

Finally – while more of a Product Medley than purely a kit – there’s the amazing Most Wonderful Time set.

And here’s a quick video about this amazing medley!

Et Voila!  There it is, the whole….wait for it…KIT and kaboodle!  I’ve added all these to my tool chest and hope you will, too!  The Joy of Giving Tag Kit is wonderful and perfect for the beginner or seasoned crafter – so…if you GIVE gifts and need some wonderful handmade tags or you’ve got some crafty folks on your gift-giving list, I highly recommend it!  I hope you like!

As Larry the Cable guys would (not) say….KIT ‘er done!

LOL

Stampin’ Up! Come and Gather 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 Hop is a color challenge – and I’m excited to see what everyone comes up with –  I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop!

When I saw the color combo for the challenge – I immediately thought – Come to Gather DSP.  Then I spent a little time hemming and hawing and decisioning.  Like…for about 5 seconds.  WAS this the right choice??  Should I go with the unexpected??  And then I remembered back to my college days – the first answer you believe to be true…usually is.  So…I stuck with my original choice and added some beautiful leaves and sentiments from the Gather Together Bundle.  Take a look-see:

And here’s our color scheme – so pretty! 🙂

When I saw the CAS(E) This Sketch layout this week – my brain “saw” the card!

This Gather Together bundle – with the Gather Together stamp set and Gathered Leaves Dies – is a fave – cuz it perfectly lends itself to my favorite card element – the Collage! So, of course that’s what I did!

I started with the wonderful wood-grain paper from the Come To Gather DSP and matted it on Cajun Craze for the card front.  I used a second design, also matted on Cajun Craze, for the horizontal strip element.

I cut yet another – predominantly Pretty Peacock – paper with the largest circle Stitched Shapes Die and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue – letting one edge hang off.  Then I trimmed that excess with a Paper Trimmer.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere a Tags & Feathers Element directly to the card front.

I inked up the large leaf from Gather Together in Early Espresso, stamped it off once on scrap paper and then stamped it on a piece of the wood-grain Come To Gather DSP.  Over that, I stamped the sentiment in Pretty Peacock and then cut the leaf with the matching Gathered Leaves Die.  I adhered it to the wooden tag with Liquid Glue.

I used my Stampin’ Spritzer to lightly mist some Pretty Peacock and Cajun Craze card stock and cut out the three smaller leaves from both colors (giving me 6 cut-and-embossed leaves). While they were still damp, I lightly curled them with my fingers.

I carefully adhered five of the leaves around and under the sentiment leaf, using Liquid Glue.  Then I used a couple of Stampin’ Dimensionals under the points of the sentiment leaf to fully stick it down.

I added the sixth leaf to the wooden tag with Liquid Glue.

I created a double-loop bow using a length of Cajun Craze Linen Thread (from the Come To Gather Ribbon Combo Pack) and a length of Linen Thread.  I just used the two lengths together as I wound the bow – and I reduced the number of loops to two big and two small!  I stuck the bow on with a couple of Glue Dots.  The final touch was three copper-finish Designer Elements.

On the inside, I added a second Gather Together sentiment in Pretty Peacock to a Whisper White panel.  Over the top is another leaf – in stamped off TWICE Early Espresso.  I also added a few splatters in stamped-off-THREE times Cajun Craze.

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got a full strength Early Espresso leaf and Cajun Craze splatters on the front…

…and more Come To Gather DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  The entire Gather Together suite simply screams I LOVE FALL, don’t you think?  The Gather Together stamp set is perfect with it’s images and sentiments.  And…the Gathered Leaves dies – that emboss as they cut (with no additional pads/shims needed!) – is simply…wunnermus!  And they complement the gorgeous Come to Gather DSP like peanut butter does chocolate!   I hope you like!

Now that you’ve seen my card, take a minute to hop thru all our projects today  If you click on the Next Blog button, you’ll go right to Kristi’s page. And you can just click on the names below to go direct to all the blogs!

Finn Fan Fix


 

I bought Finn a toy.

I know – shocking.

This one is sort of a soft squishy rubbery ring with little nubby-stubbies on it.

Like…a toothbrush for dogs.

Finn is…not impressed.

Definitely NOT a Mr. Reindeer!

So…to persuade him to have any part of it at all – I smeared a little peanut butter on it.

Which totally got his undivided attention.

It needed holding to get that sticky stuff.

Guess what happened when the PB was gone.

Yea.  He was gone, too.

Epic Fail in the toy buying department. 🙁

Stampin’ Up! Udderly Over the Moon!

Happy Tuesday, y’all!  Hope the week is going well – and that if you are – or are not – or might be – or might not be – maybe – possibly – in the path of Dorian…that you’re doing okay.  🙂

My card today is a quick and easy one – with some fun embossing using Shimmer Black Embossing Powder to create the cute image from the Over the Moon stamp set!  Take a look-see:

The color scheme is thanks to the Global-Design-Project color theme this week.

I played along with The Paper Players “Down on the Farm” theme…

…and with the TGIF Product Spotlight Challenge! 🙂

I started with a piece of So Saffron card stock and matted it on Basic Black for the card front.

Then I cut two pieces of Mint Macaron paper from the Subtles 6″ x 6″ DSP and matted them on Basic Black as well.  I adhered them both to the card front with Liquid Glue.

For the art, I inked up the sweet little cow-dudette from Over The Moon in Versamark Ink and stamped it on a piece of Whisper White.  Then I sprinkled it with some Shimmer Black Embossing Powder and heat embossed it.  I did the same with the heart-conversation bubble.  Aaaannddd…while I was at it – I heat embossed the heart-conversation bubble on a seperate piece of Whisper White and set it aside for the time being.

I carefully colored the image with Stampin Blends (remember – the ink wants to react with the embossing powder – so…be discrete and stay off of it as much as you can!).  I used my Dark Black, Light and Dark Smoky Slate and Light Rococo Rose.  I colored her boots and horns with my So Saffron Stampin’ Write Marker.

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

I colored the second heart-conversation bubble with my Dark Rococo Rose Stampin’ Blend and then fussy cut it.  It’s popped onto the card front with a couple of Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the Over The Moon sentiment in Rococo Rose on Whisper White and punched it with the Classic Label Punch.  I edged it with the So Saffron Stampin’ Write Marker and popped it onto the art panel with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside, I added the cow and conversation bubble images again – this time in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink – on a Whisper White panel.  I colored her as I’d done on the front.

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got the cow and bubble treatment on the front…

…and a little more of the Mint Macaron Subtles 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Okay – you can’t NOT love this little cow dude/dude-ette from the Over The Moon stamp set.  It simply isn’t possible. And when you throw in the sweet little sentiments – it’s a win-win-win!!  Hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix


I do believe the Finn-man has the right use-plan for the treadmill.

You know – a plan where you don’t look at it with a weird combination of affection, appreciation and sheer loathing!?

Yup.
