Stampin’ Up! Dino Days for A Good Man 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 Celebrate Summer!  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 go to the beach.  With dinosaurs.

No – no dinosaurs.  Just the DinoRAUR Suite.  And then I added a little Come Sail Away DSP and a couple of goodies from the A Good Man set.  Take a look-see:

I started with a piece of Come Sail Away DSP and matted it on Crumb Cake for the card front.  Then I used SNAIL and some Glue Dots to adhere a length of new 3/8″ Denim Ribbon.

On a piece of Whisper White, I stamped the image from A Good Man in Crumb Cake to start my beach-y scene.

I stamped the image again – on a sticky note this time – and roughly fussy cut it to make a mask.  Then I stamped it AGAIN – on some Balmy Blue striped Come Sail Away DSP.  I fussy cut just the shirt from that one.

I laid the sticky note mask over the stamped image and then stamped the palm trunks from Dino Days in Crumb Cake twice – when I lifted up the mask, the trees were “behind” the lounging man! 🙂

I colored my lounger-guy with my Light Balmy Blue (hat), Light Night of Navy (shorts); Ivory (skin) and Crumb Cake (“sand” and lounge chair) Stampin’ Blends.  Then I used Liquid Glue to adhere the fussy cut “shirt”.

I added some Mossy Meadow leaves from Dino Days.  I matted the panel on Crumb Cake and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

On another piece of Whisper White I stamped 5 more leaves and cut them with the Dino Dies.  I lightly curled each leaf and used Liquid Glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere them to the top of the trees.

I stamped the A Good Man sentiment in Mossy Meadow on Whisper White and cut it with the Classic Label Punch.  Then I edged it with my Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Write Marker and popped it onto the card front with Dimensionals.  A new Designer Element in the middle of the palm tree leaves finished off the card front.

On the inside, I added some Crumb Cake and Mossy Meadow Dino Days palm trees to a Whisper White panel.

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Dino Days palms on the front…

…and a little more Come Sail Away DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Now – seriously.  Does that NOT look like a totally wonderful way to pass a summer day!?!  And – aren’t you glad there are no Dino Days pterodactyls flying by??!  I bet our lounging dude from A Good Man sure is!  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 Julie’s page or the Next Blog button to see what Akiko’s been up to!

Stampin’ Up! 2019 Greek Isles – Cruising…Cruising….and a 2019 Holiday Catalog Sneak Peek!

Happy Monday!  I hope you had a great weekend – and have enjoyed the pictures of Rome!

We’re on Day One – or…two?…of the cruise.  And by the time you get this – Amy, Anna, Wayne and I will be in a cupcake decorating class.

Yes – you read me right! 🙂  We’re all taking a cupcake decorating class on the ship.  I think it will be fun – and am pretty sure we get to eat our creations! 🙂

In anticipation of eating our homework….I started my day doing…

…while watching THIS go by on the starboard side!  Stromboli!  No – in this case it’s a vocanic island – NOT a food!

Oh yea.  We also saw the new Holiday catalog earlier today! 😉

We sort of got a glimpse of it when we arrived to the ship on Sunday.  After the first of many eating sessions, we hit the SU! hospitality room and spun for our first “gift”!  Here’s a look-see at what I won…I WONDER what the stamp set that matches this looks like!! 😉

One of the cool things (among a TON of cool things!!) about our incentive trips is a little thing callled…pillow gifts!

A pillow gift is a….well…GIFT…from Stampin’ Up!  The room stewards bring them and leave them in our rooms in the evenings, usually when we’re at dinner or out just cruising the decks (yes – I did that).  Our first one arrived on Sunday!  OPA!

What is that clipped to the top you ask?!?  Check it!

Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Whoo-hoo!

But wait! Those are…black!?!?  Holy smokes!!  AWESOME-SAUCE!!  You KNOW how I feel about dimensionals!! 🙂

Inside – we discovered a super cool bag – it’s a leather purse/daypack!!  🙂

That’s going to come in really handy, I know – and it’s so pretty!! 🙂

On Monday morning we had our general session where we got to see (and get!!) some of the new goodies in the 2019 Holiday Catalog!  Check out the cover!

This fun Apple Builder Punch has a bundled stamp set called Harvest Hellos – and it can be an apple – or a pumpkin!

The Christmas Gleaming set is part of the Brightly Gleaming Suite – and is bundled with the Gleaming Ornaments Punch Pack (a set of TWO large punches) and some of the prettiest paper ever – the Brightly Gleaming Specialty DSP.

The Toile Christmas set will make Cardinal lovers’ hearts flutter – especially given that there’s a matching set of Christmas Cardinal Dies!!

The final stamp set we got today is the Tags Tags Tags set – with a bundle of dies called Trio of Tags!

And there are some wonderful copper-foil embellishments, too!

So – the cruise is under way!  We’re at sea on Monday and Monday night and then get into Santorini for our first port on Tuesday!  So – more pictures will be coming!  DO watch my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page – I’ve already posted some pictures of the ship and our cabin.  You should expect some cupcake masterpieces in the near future, too! 😉

Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Friendship and Birch Birthday!

Good morning!  It’s Sunday at…some time?…in Rome.  I think when you get this post, it’ll be around 1400 in the afternoon (which is totally the Department of Redundancy Department since 1400 can ONLY be in the afternoon which is why the 24-hour clock is so darned handy!).

And – we’ll probably be on the ship or close to it!

O. M.  G!  It’s finally here!  Cruising again!!  I got a real taste for being on the water (in a big ship with a comfy cabin and lots of good food!!) on the Alaska cruise last summer – and I’m very grateful to be getting a chance to do it again!!

I’ll post ship pictures tomorrow – and maybe to my FB page today – so…be watching!

My Birthday card today uses the spectacular, and also gorgeous, Beautiful Friendship and Birch background stamp sets.  Take a look-see!

The layout for this one comes from this week’s Sunday Stamps sketch challenge (I turned it on it’s side…)

I started by using my Stamparatus to stamp the Birch image in Sahara Sand on a panel of Whisper White.  Then I cut it down to card-front size and matted it on Seaside Spray using Liquid Glue.

I adhered a strip of the linen-look Pressed Petals Specialty DSP across the card front with Liquid Glue – then used SNAIL and Glue Dots to adhere two lengths of Rococo Rose 1/2″ Scalloped Linen Ribbon.

On another piece of Whisper White, I stamped the hydrangea image from Beautiful Friendship twice in Seaside Spray.  Then I added some Rococo Rose roses, Old Olive leaves – some full strength and some stamped-without-reinking – and some Highland Heather lilacs.

I also added the pretty sentiment in Old Olive.

I matted the panel on Seaside Spray and popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped two more Rococo Rose roses and a couple of Old Olive leaves on Whisper White and fussy cut them.  The leaves and one of the roses is adhered with Liquid Glue – and I popped the second rose next to the sentiment with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a double-loop bow in Linen Thread and a Purple Posy 2019-2021 In Color Faceted Dot and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped a whole cottage garden of flowers from Beautiful Friendship in Rococo Rose, Highland Heather and Old Olive on a Whisper White panel.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Seaside Spray 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 a few (okay – a lot!) more flowers on the front..

…and some more of the Pressed Petals Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Beautiful Friendship lets you garden-on-paper!  No rain or weeding required!  And – the cottage-garden look you can create is just gorgeous!  I hope you like!

Now – off the the Lido Deck! 😉

P.S  Saturday was a good day in Rome – will post more about it later – but…we only ate gelato ONCE.  We had tiramisu, too.  But…it was so tiny….  We went to a spot that is apparently the #1 Tiramisu in Rome.  Called Two Sizes. We posited that there were two doors – a narrow one to go IN and a much WIDER one to go OUT.  But – in fact it was that they had Tiramisu – in a variety of flavors (who knew?!?) – in…yes.  Two Sizes.  I chose small. 😉

Stampin’ Up! Rome and…More Gelato?? Seriously?!?

Happy Saturday!  Hope you’re having a good weekend so far!  To be honest, as I write this on Friday afternoon in our break between sightseeing and dinner…I have no idea what our plan is for Saturday – guess we’ll know soon!

But on Friday – we had an awesome guided van tour that Amy’s husband, Lance, arranged for us!  Massimo met us in a nice (air conditioned!!) van at 8 at the hotel and we hit the road.

As we experienced “Rome” driving – which is….like nothing I’ve ever seen! – we wound our way around the city and listened to Massimo speak of a city that he obviously loves.  And he knows so much of its history – it was really interesting.  We learned a lot while having a great time.  Which is sort of…AWESOME!

So – we stopped first at the Colosseum where we met Jason (another highly experienced tour guide).  We spent a couple of hours walking around the Colosseum and learning some really cool things. Guys – the architecture is simply stunning.  The engineering firsts that they accomplished here so many many years ago – and the architectural elements – have stood the test of time and were used as “templates” for a plethora of other buildings far away (in space AND time) from its building.  Take a gander!

 

Not going to lie – this was a fascinating place to see – but…I am glad I wasn’t around in its heyday – I would not have liked it at all.

It was interesting to hear that after the fall of the Roman empire, the structure was essentially abandoned.  And, as times were hard for the poeple, they actually used it for their own purposes – building houses and fortified structures – using it as a foundation – thru the years!  You can see large holes in the walls where beams were placed to create walls or parts were removed and repurposed.

One such place remains…

We also swung by the Forum for a quick look.

Next we saw a short section of the original Appian Way…pretty darned rough looking, but we were assured it was smooth and driveable back “in the day”!…

…and then we hit the Catacombs of St Callixtus.  In addition to being a welcome respite from the heat – the catacombs are at a constant 58F! – our tour there was led by a young Priest – and it was…really pretty powerful.  Especially the story of St. Cecilia – who is the Patron Saint of Music.  She was a martyr and…well.  Look it up.  We weren’t allowed to take any pictures in the catacombs – but…here’s a picture I found online (from Dickstrack of English Wikipedia) of the statue that lays in her spot.  They commissioned that after finding her in that exact position in her crypt – check out her fingers (that was a code back in the days when Christians had to be a secret society to avoid Persecution).  Not sure why – but her story really sort of hit me!

Anywho…after lunch (BEST pizza I’ve ever tasted!) – we went to the St Paul’s Basilica outside the wall of the old city.  Wow!

 

We made one last stop for a scenic overlook of the city…

…and it was time for the end of the tour!  Bye-bye, Massimo!  We had a wonderful time!

We finished the morning activities with another round of gelato – yes.  It’s true.  This time was dark chocolate and strawberry.  OMG!

We learned something else from Massimo – take the food to go.  Otherwise – they add about $3 to the price to sit down!  So we did – go, not sit down – which means…no pictures! 🙁

And then we returned to our rooms to rest up until dinner.  Lance found us a great little spot on Trip Advisor – we had a great meal and another fun time together!

LOL!  Rome – as seen between feasting sessions!! 🙂

Oh well.  It’s vacation and I’m sure there are no calories.  Also – we’re doing a lot of walking – and stairs on this day! – and it’s hot.  So…I’m burning them.

That’s my story and I’m sticking to it!  😉

See y’all tomorrow!

Stampin’ Up! Gelato and Rome!

Hey guys – it’s Friday!

I’m pretty sure.

Well – it’s Friday SOMEwhere – here?  There?  Both?

I’m tired, folks – the jet lag is real!  So – my normally sharp-as-a-razor-wit may be a little…dull. 😉

We spent Wed and Thursday getting to Rome – long but easy flying, all in all.

 

After we arrived at our hotel…

 

… and met up with Igor…

…we hit the streets and saw some sights!

Like…the Pantheon.  And the Trevi Fountain.  St. Peter’s Basilica.   All I can really say is Oh.  My.  Goodness!  The architecture is simply beyond explaining.  The sheer size – and intricate detail of the carvings.  The longevity of these buildings that have been here since the start of recorded civilization.  Sort of stunning!

 

And then?

Yep.  Gelato.

Amy and I had Tiramisu Gelato.

It.  Did.  Not.  Suck. 🙂

After dinner we walked a little more to see the the Piazza Del Popolo and the Fontana della Dea di Roma.

Okay.  We actually did Gelato…TWICE.

In the same day.

Our second go was a scoop of Dark Chocolate and a scoop of Baileys.  It was even better than the Tiramisu! 🙂

So!  Day one was a rousing success.

One of these days soon I’ll tell the “Spanx” story.  But not today.

Stampin’ Up! Frosted Royal Peacock 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 decided to play with the gorgeously stunning colors and images in the Noble Peacock Suite – including the Royal Peacock stamp set, bundled Detailed Peacock Dies and the Noble Peacock Specialty DSP and Foil.  Take a look-see:

And here’s the sketch that inspired us all today!

I started with a piece of the Old Olive Noble Peacock Foil and embossed it in the Beads & Baubles Embossing Folder – and that became the card front.

Using a piece of the Pretty Peacock paper in the Noble Peacock Specialty DSP, I took the edgelit die from the new Magnolia Memory Die set and cut the scalloped edge.  I adhered that cut panel to the embossed card front with Liquid Glue.

I cut a few peacock feathers from Old Olive and Pretty Peacock foils using the Detailed Peacock Dies – then I adhered them ever-so-artistically onto the card front with Liquid Glue.

For the sentiment, which is actually two sentiment stamps from the Royal Peacock stamp set, I stamped each phrase in Old Olive on Whisper White.  I pulled out the two-die label combination from the Frosted Bouquet Die set and cut the sentiment.  I cut an Old Olive foil mat using the second die (which creates a perfectly-sized mat!) and adhered the sentiment to it with Liquid Glue.

I stamped the flower image from Royal Peacock twice in Pretty Peacock ink on Whisper White and colored them with my Light Old Olive Stampin’ Blend.  Then I cut them with the matching die in the Detailed Peacock set.  I popped them onto the sentiment with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Then I popped the whole thing onto the card front with more Dimensionals.

I added some Noble Peacock Rhinestones to the flower centers and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped a second Royal Peacock sentiment in Old Olive on Whisper White.  Next to it I added a couple of flourishes in Pretty Peacock, coloring them with my Light Old Olive Blend.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to an Old Olive Noble Peacock foil mat and into my Thick Whisper White card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got a couple of Royal Peacock flourishes on the front…

…and a couple of the flower images on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  These colors in the Noble Peacock Suite are just so rich and gorgeous together, aren’t they?  And I love the sentiments and images in the Royal Peacock stamp set.  I am also a huge fan of the Detailed Peacock Die set – especially those wonderful feathers (which are stunning and very Peacock-y in the Foil!!).  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!

Last weekend at Sam’s we bought a whole watermelon.

Almost as if we weren’t leaving…today!…on vacation.

So – I cut it up on Sunday with the plan that we’d eat it and then whatever was leftover we’d leave (with the chunks of the cut-up rind) in the outside fridge to be fed to the ladies while we were gone.

I even used a cookie scoop to make the melon balls.  Cuz…melon tastes better as balls.  That’s a real thing.

But folks…there weren’t enough melon-baller-cookie-scoops to help this thing!

It looked SO yumm-o while I was cutting it up.  But…when I finally took a taste…

Nuthin’. Nada. Niente.

Tasted like red…niente.

What is more disappointing than a watermelon that hasn’t fulfilled its promise?

Not much.

But – the Man? Not so discerning.

Neither were the ladies!

Slurp slurp nom nom slurp.

Stampin’ Up! Rustic Retreat Birthday Card!

Well – good morning!  We’re T-1 and counting!

I sort of have the laundry done.  I mostly have cards ready.  I might have pared my luggage down to one ball-gown and three tiaras….

Man, it’s hard.  It’s so much easier to just throw one or five of everything in the suitcase(s) and then pick and choose once you get there!

But – I have resolved to go at least a little lighter.

So – I’m really going to get strict with myself.  Obviously the DIAMOND tiara will make the cut – Diamonds go with everything!

I have a “one-of-my-favorite” cards today for you.  It uses the new Rustic Retreat stamp set and some other fun goodies (most of which you’ve seen before).  Take a look-see:

This one was quick to make- so hang tight! 🙂

I started by embossing a piece of Crumb Cake card stock in the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder and then matting it on Mossy Meadow for the card front.

Next up, I embossed another piece of Mossy Meadow – this time in the Corrugated embossing folder.  I tore it sort of ragged-ed-ly down to size and adhered it to the card front with SNAIL.  Then I added some decorative staples in the corners (using a non-SU! handheld stapler!).

I cut two lengths of 5/8″ Burlap Ribbon and used more SNAIL to adhere them to the Corrugated panel.

For the sentiment, I used my Stamparatus to stamp the sentiment from Rustic Retreat on a piece of Crumb Cake card stock.  Over the top, in stamped-off-once Mossy Meadow, I stamped the branches from Rustic Retreat a few times.  Then I cut it with a Stitched Nested Label Die.

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

With Glue Dots, I adhered a Bird Ballad Trinket (one of the leaves), tucking it under the sentiment.  Then I tied a double-length bow from Mossy Meadow Linen Thread (in the Magnolia Lane Ribbon Pack) and adhered it with a Glue Dot.  And that was it for the card front.

On the inside, I added the sentiment from Rustic Retreat in Early Espresso to a Crumb Cake mat.  Over the top, I added a line of pine trees in stamped-off-twice Mossy Meadow.

I used Liquid Glue (and a few decorative staples!) to adhere the panel to a Mossy Meadow mat and then into my Early Espresso card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got Mossy Meadow branches across the front…

…and the line of pine trees on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Not gonna fib-ya, folks – I LOVE how this card turned out!  Torn edges – crooked panels – woodsy accents from the Rustic Retreat stamp set.  Yep – this is smack in the dead-center of my wheelhouse.  I hope you like!

There is something in the woods across the pond.

He stood there for the longest time – absolutely focused.

Finally, he decided it was probably nothing (he was right – it was just one of our mama deer doing her mama-deer thing)…

He was still keeping an eye out – JIC.  But…from a much lower DEFCON level.

But – this DEFCON posture made some paw-poofs stick out.

So I took yet another picture of his paws.

Cuz…I find them to be just about his cutest thing! 🙂

Okay – there’s the scoop on two HUGE specials that started TODAY!

Before I leave you – let’s take a look-see at the June Paper Pumpkin.  It was SOOO cute!

When you open the Big Orange Box – you’ll discover a wonderful exclusive stamp set and a Coastal Cabana Ink Spot…

…and all the fixin’s to make 16 tiny little beachy-themed notecards and matching envelopes!

I put them together quick-like-a-bunny and….got…4 of each design.

The final awesomeness comes in the darling little folder that is included and perfectly sized to carry 4 cards and envelopes!

Pop this itty-bitty-cutie in your purse/briefcase/backpack/Craft-and-Carry-Tote (which you can buy as a Demonstrator – just sayin’!) and…spread A Little Smile wherever you go!

Watch to see how it goes together!

Already put yours together – and want a refill?  It’s your lucky day!  Get them right here!

Now – it’s time to get in on the July kit!

You know, there are many many ways to guard.

Sometime you have to use use your ferocious teeth…

Other times, though…you need to be quiet.  Watching and listening.  Hypervigilant.  Ready to spring into action in the blink of an eyelash.

So in case a booger-man comes to do something bad to the Mom (unlikely but…one never really knows, does one?)….you’re ready.  And the booger-man is surprised.

Or…maybe it was just a bug. 😉

Stampin’ Up! Winds of Change for a Friend

Happy Sunday, my peeps!  I hope your weekend is going well.  And I hope that MY weekend has been productive.  My list is long – and the little check boxes…too empty, I fear!  But – Wednesday is coming and it will be what it will be, right?  Regardless of what is – or is NOT – done, we’ll be leaving on a jet plane.

Hopefully one with four engines.

Just sayin’! 🙂

If you were able to join me last night for my Live Facebook video, I appreciate you spending part of YOUR weekend with me.  And this is where I’d usually say – “If not – but you’d like to see how I made today’s card – then…here’s the almost-Memorex version on my YouTube channel.”  But THIS week, apparently my video stopped recording about 1 minute in.  Not entirely sure why but…it’s gone! 🙁

So – we’ll have to do this old-school! 🙂

I played with a lovely new set called Winds of Change – and used a sort-of-Double-Time technique.  Take a look-see:

Pretty image – makes ya want to click your clogs.

Or have some Anderson Pea Soup….

Not everyone’s gonna get than one! 😉

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

And the color pallete is from the Inspire. Create.  Challenge.

I started with a card-front-sized piece of Whisper White card stock and, using my Stamparatus, stamped the image from the new Winds of Change stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  Then I laid a smaller strip over the top and stamped the image again.

And then…I…let…it…dry.

For a good loooooong time! 🙂

Once it was good and dry, I used Stampin’ Blends in Purple Posy, Rococo Rose and Pretty Peacock to color the flowers – making sure to get the flowers on the larger panel fully colored (where they’d be visible!), too.  I used my Seaside Spray Stampin’ Write Marker to highlight portions of the windmill.

I used my Stamparatus – and the acetate from the now-retired Stamp-A-Ma-Jig – to add the sentiment from Winds of Change in Terracotta Tile ink.  Then I matted both panels on Seaside Spray card stock.

I popped the narrow strip onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals – making sure to align the image!  Then I added a few 2019-2021 In Color Faceted Dots and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added another floral image from Winds of Change in Tuxedo Black and colored it with my Rococo Rose and Pretty Peacock Stampin’ Blends.  Then I added another little Terracotta Tile dot.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Seaside Spray mat and into my Terracotta Tile 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 sweet spray of tulips on the front…

…and I added some Terracotta Tile paper (with scripty writing on it!) from the 2019-2020 In Color 6″ x 6″ DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This wonderful new Winds of Change hits all the right notes – gorgeous flowers – beautiful sentiments in lovely fonts!  Stampin’ Up! really hit it out of the park (the TULIP park)!  I hope you like!
