Stampin’ Up! Just Us Girls Guest Designer Witty-Cisms Welcome Baby

Good morning, my peeps!  We’re three-quarters of the way thru my “term” as a Guest Designer at the Just Us Girls Challenge! Which is why I’m in your Inbox so early!  I’m pretty sure you won’t see this for a few hours, but…hopefully it’s a nice thing to wake up to! 🙂

This week is a color challenge – and I interpreted the colors in a not-so-obvious way!  I pulled out the new Witty-Cisms stamp set and used some Neutrals and 2019-2021 DSP to help me out.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Back on Your Feet in a Tropical Oasis

Well.  It’s happened again.  It’s Friday!  Whoo-hooo!!  Hope you’ve got a good weekend coming up.

Just a PSA – today is the LAST DAY to “cash” in on my Double Peppermints Ordering Special.  Don’t miss out, okay?  That is all.

A friend of mine recently took a spill and, in a split-second decision, opted to land on her knee instead of her noggin.  Which – while a good plan in the big scheme of things, still HURT like crazy!  So – I needed a good-for-a-smile get well card.  I think the images in Back on Your Feet are just the thing, don’t you?  And I put my guy in the Tropics – courtesy of the new Tropical Oasis Suite.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from this week’s CAS(E) This Sketch challenge – although I cheated the sentiment placement…

I started with some Tropical Oasis DSP – I think this one is leading the pack for my fave new DSP!! – that I matted on Terracotta Tile for the card front.  Then I took a second design and matted it on Terracotta Tile to create the DSP strip.

For the art, I used my Stamparatus to stamp the too-cute sloth in Soft Suede ink on Whisper White.  I colored the image with my Soft Suede and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Combos.  I used a Blender Pen to pick up ink from the lid of my Terracotta Tile ink pad to color the bandage.

I added “ouch” in Terracotta TIle, then matted the panel and popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I used some SNAIL to adhere two pieces of Terracotta Tile 1/2″ Scalloped Linen Ribbon.

On Whisper White, I stamped the small flower and the leaf from Timeless Tropical in Soft Suede.  I colored the flower with my Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends Combo – and my Blender Pen with Terracotta TIle.  The leaf is colored with the Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Combo.  I cut them with their dies in the Timeless Tropical Dies.

I sponged some Old Olive on a piece of Pear Pizzazz and then cut three of the leaves in the Timeless Tropical dies.

Then I built the collage.

I popped the large leaf on with a Stampin’ Dimensional.  Next, I made a double-loop with some Linen Thread – twisted it into a figure-8 and adhered it with a Glue Dot.  Then I added the flower with a Dimensional.  I tucked the leaves in here and there with Liquid Glue.

I finished with a Terracotta Tile Faceted Gem (annual catalog) in the middle of the flower and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped a second Back on Your Feet sentiment in Terracotta Tile on a Whisper White panel.  In the corner, I stamped the small flower in Soft Suede.  I also stamped the image on a sticky note and fussy cut it to create a mask.  I covered the flower on the panel with the mask and added the leaf a few times.  The images are colored just like I did on the front – and I added another Terracotta Tile Faceted Dot.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Terracotta Tile mat and into my Soft Suede card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another flower and leaves on the front…

…and a little more Tropical Oasis DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I feel pretty sure this will bring a smile, which is always the point of a get-well card, right?  The cute images and sweet sentiments in Back on Your Feet are punny-ly fun and yet convey that we care!  And Tropical Oasis – the Timeless Tropical stamp set, In the Tropics dies and Tropical Oasis DSP…well.  This is fast becoming my favorite suite in the 2020 Jan-Jun Mini Catalog!  I hope you like!

Finn has a bit of a…Licker….problem.  In that – he can’t hold his licker. 😉

He has no control when it comes to anything that might contain a whiff, trace or smidge of food.

He doesn’t even care what that food is…steak…salmon…broccoli…

But – every licker-holic needs an enabler.

Stampin’ Up! Let It Ride Flourishing Phrases

Happy happy HAWWWMP DAY!!!  Whoo-hoo!

I’ve got a clean and pretty-simple card today – it’s a sympathy card with the Let It Ride and Flourishing Phrases stamp sets from the Annual Catalog.  And – I managed to find another reason to use the Stitched So Sweetly Dies from the 2020 Jan-Jun Mini.  I LOVE that die set!  Take a look-see:

I started with a Very Vanilla panel that I embossed in the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder and matted on Mossy Meadow for the card front.

The art is from the Let It Ride stamp set – I stamped the horse in Crumb Cake ink on Very Vanilla.  I colored him with my Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush – picking up the ink from the lid of the Crumb Cake ink pad.

I added a little green at the bottom with my Light Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blend.

I matted the panel on Mossy Meadow and adhered the whole thing to the card front with Liquid Glue.

For the sentiment, I used my Stamparatus to stamp the sentiment from Flourishing Phrases on Very Vanilla, then I cut it with the wunnermus scalloped die from Stitched So Sweetly.

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

I adhered a double-loop Linen Thread bow with a Glue Dot and that was it for the card front.

On the inside, I used the Stamparatus to add a second sentiment from Flourishing Phrases in Mossy Meadow to a Very Vanilla panel.  I stamped the image a couple of times to get it darker.  Over the top I stamped the trees image (just once!) from the Let It Ride set in Mossy Meadow.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Mossy Meadow 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 the horse head from Let It Ride in Crumb Cake on the front…colored the same way that I colored the horse on the front of the card…

…and the trees in Mossy Meadow on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  These two sets – Let It Ride and Flourishing Phrases – while not necessarily designed to work together….really do, don’t you think?  I love the pretty trees and the addition of the Pinewood Planks embossing brings it home.  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Welcome to the Team Gang’s All Meer

Happy Monday, y’all!  Are you having fun with Sale-A-Bration?!?  Some really fun goodies to get for FREE!!  And a wonderful Joining Special!  And Double Peppermints!  It’s a great time to be a STAMPER!!!  Wow!

So – speaking of Sale-A-Bration, I’ve got a cute card today that uses a stamp set I got for free and YOU can get for free, too – The Gang’s All Meer!!  I paired it up with the So Sentimental stamp set and the bundled Stitched So Sweetly Dies.  Plus some other goodies I think you’ll recognize!!  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from the CAS(E) This Sketch challenge.

And the color palette is from the Color Throwdown challenge.

I started with a piece of Peaceful Poppies DSP and ran it thru my die cutting machine in the new Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder, then matted it on Early Espresso to make the card front.

I cut the same design of Peaceful Poppies DSP with the die in the Stitched Labels set and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

On Whisper White, I stamped the adorable The Gang’s All Meer cats in Early Espresso.  And I stamped the little guy popping out of his hole.  I cut them both with dies from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.

The images are all colored with my Clear Wink of Stella – using Soft Suede, Crumb Cake and Early Espresso inks (picked up from the lids of the ink pads).

I popped the large image on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and then adhered the smaller die cut with a Mini Dimensional and some Liquid Glue.

The sentiment, from the Welcome to the Team set (2019-2020 Annual Catalog), is stamped in Early Espresso on Peaceful Poppies DSP and cut with the small Stitched Rectangle Die.

I adhered the sentiment with Liquid Glue, added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels and the card front was done.

On the inside, I stamped a big sentiment from the So Sentimental stamp set in Poppy Parade ink on a Whisper White panel.  I added the little Meer-cat popping-dude and a Rhinestone Basic Jewel.

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another The Gang’s All Meer cat on the front…

…and some more of the Peaceful Poppies DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  How stinkin’ cute is The Gang’s All Meer?!?  I mean – serious.  Add in that you can get it for free with a $50 purchase?  Yes, please.  And the So Sentimental Bundle is one of my very very favorites in the new 2020 Jan-Jun Mini Catalog.  How about you?  I hope you like!

There’s a lot of goodness between here and the Finn Fan Fix…so…be sure to take a look, okay? 😉

Finn Fan Fix


Yesterday was hay-day on the farm.  Not HEYDAY.  HAY day.

As in – the girls have been teetering on the very precipice of starvation for several days now.

We know this because they’re at the gate by about 3 in the afternoon  – swaying piteously due to their weakened state.

So – it was time to put hay bales in the two feeders.  One in each pasture.

Finn….helped.

And so did the girls.

See their ribs?

No?

Hmmm.

After some rolling and netting (we put the bales in giant nets to thwart their “Hay-flinger” tendencies!) and pushing away big noses…

…we had a bale in place in the top pasture.

Finn was done with this nonsense.

He was saving himself to supervise and QC the second bale installation.

Looking about right, Dad.  Keep up the good work!  (Praise in public, criticize in private – he’s a good leader!)

Netting takes some….Dad-on work!

Two bales.  1600 pounds of hay.  That oughta last them a minute.

And yes.  They were still at the gate by 5.  😉

Stampin’ Up! Just Us Girls Guest Designer – Into the Winter Woods

Good morning, y’all – and Happy Saturday!

I was honored to be asked to be a Guest Designer on the Just Us Girls challenge for the month of January, so…you’ll be seeing a post from me on Saturday’s REALLY EARLY in the morning!  You can catch my Facebook video sneak peek in the post that will come around 7!

I pulled out the carrying-over Snowman Season and the Winter Woods bundle from the Annual Catalog for today’s wintery Thank You card.  Take a look-see:

Can you guess our Theme?

I hope my card will inspire you to get crafty and come on over to play with the Just Us Girls challenge!  Looking forward to seeing what you create!

I started with some See a Silhouette DSP and, with the snowflake image from the Snowman Season stamp set (this is carrying over – whoo-hoo!!), I stamped all over the panel using Versamark Ink.

I sprinkled the DSP with Shimmer White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed it with my Heat Tool.  Then I matted it on Pacific Point card stock.

Using the Into the Woods Dies, I cut three solid trees from Vellum card stock and three of the more detailed trees from Sparkle Glimmer Paper.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the Vellum trees to the card front – being sure to only use it where I knew the top layer of trees would hide the glue.

The Sparkle Glimmer Trees are popped on top with Stampin’ Dimensionals – cut small enough to remain hidden.

For the sentiment, I cut four of the Thank You Die cuts in Pacific Point and one in Whisper White.  Then I layered them up, adhering them all together with Liquid Glue.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the die cut sentiment atop the trees.  A few Coastal Cabana gems from the Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels finished off the card front.

On the inside, I used Smoky Slate – stamped off once – to stamp the big tree from the Winter Woods stamp set on a Whisper White panel.  Some Snowman Season snowflakes in stamped-off-once Pool Party swirl around the tree.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Pacific Point mat and into my Basic Black card base, and to adhere the card front, and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got a full-strength Smoky Slate Winter Woods tree and Pool Party Snowman Season snowflakes on the front…

…and more of the See A Silhouette DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Christmas is past but that means it’s thank you card season!  I love the Thank You die and it’s pretty darned stunning atop the sparkly Into the Woods trees.  Snowman Season and Winter Woods both lend their images to this wintery thank you card! I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Woven Heirlooms So Sweetly Sentimental

 

Whheeeeeeeeeee (that’s me trying to type the sound one of those party doohickies make when you blow them….).  Hope you enjoyed the evening and are waking up bright eyed and bushy tailed – ready to get on with 2020!

I made a card for you guys that reflects how I feel about y’all, so I thought it would be a good one to share with you today! It uses the new So Sentimental bundle with the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.  And I pulled out a little Woven Heirlooms from the Annual Catalog, too.  Take a look-see:

If you’ve done any looking thru your new 2020 Jan-Jun Mini Catalog (I KNOW you have!) then this one might look a little familiar.  It’s a bit of a CASE of one of the samples!

I started with a panel of Terracotta Tile cardstock that I embossed in the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder and then adhered it to the front of a Terracotta Tile card base with Liquid Glue.

The next panel is some Woven Heirlooms DSP, matted on Seaside Spray.

I pulled out the Stitched So Sweetly Dies and cut a Whisper White label.  Using a plain ole hole punch from the grocery store, I punched holes in both ends.  I popped the label onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Then I ran some Linen Thread thru and around the back of the panel – securing it with Glue Dots.

For the So Sentimental sentiment, I stamped it in Pretty Peacock on Seaside Spray and cut it with a Stitched So Sweetly die.  That’s adhered to the white label with Liquid Glue.

I tied a bow with two lengths of Linen Thread and stuck it on with a Glue Dot.  Then I added a Pretty Peacock gem from the Noble Peacock Rhinestones and…the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a second So Sentimental sentiment in Pretty Peacock on a Whisper White panel.  Next to it, I added some fleur-de-do’s from the Woven Heirlooms stamp set in Rococo Rose.  A couple of Noble Peacock Rhinestones finished it off.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Seaside Spray mat and into the Terracotta Tile card base and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got some fleur-de-do’s from Woven Heirlooms in Rococo Rose on the front…

…and a little more Woven Heirlooms DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This is SUCH a great set – with the So Sentimental stamp set’s wonderful sentiments and the AWESOME Stitched So Sweetly dies, right??  I love it and I’m already hope-hope-HOPING that it’s planned for the next Annual Catalog.  LOVE those stitched labels SO much!  Speaking of the Annual catalog – don’t forget about the great goodies to be found there – like the Woven Heirlooms stamp set and DSP!  I hope you like!

So – the So Sentimental bundle is a part of my Special Bundle #8 – The Say it in Ink Bundle – as well as a whole bunch of other goodies – including the Grace’s Garden bundle, Witty-cisms and Music From The Heart (and more!).  Be sure to check it out!

AND – when you order this bundle, you’ll get a pack of Whisper White note Cards & Envelopes FREE and you’ll qualify for 3 $50 Sale-A-Bration rewards OR 1 $100 and 1 $50 reward.  What will YOU pick?!?  😉

Stampin’ Up! Young at Heart Thanks for the Laughs Sneak Peek

Happy Friday-after-Christmas!  Did you go out yesterday to hit the After-Christmas Sales?  Wayne and a friend left early and spent the day on the lake fishing – yes, it’s that kind of weather here right now!  Me and Finn?  We stayed home and watched the news with all the reports of the After-Christmas traffic and thanked our lucky stars that we weren’t out in it!

While I was doing all that, I made a card (I know – crazy!).  It uses a new set called Thanks For The Laughs (coming in the 2020 Jan-Jun Mini Catalog and, incidentally, part of my Special Bundle #8: The Say It In Ink Bundle) and a new-to-me set from the Annual Catalog called Young At Heart.  Take a look-see:

How great is that sentiment??

The interesting layout is from this week’s CAS(E) This Sketch challenge.

I started with a piece of Whisper White card stock and two strips of Best Dressed 6″ x 6″ DSP (also from the 2020 Jan-Jun Mini Catalog and available on 3 Jan).  I laid the strips out to get the layout in place – then used my Stamparatus to stamp the cute image from Young At Heart in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.

I colored the ladies with my Purple Posy and Pretty Peacock Stampin’ Blends Combos, plus my Light So Saffron and Light Crumb Cake Blends.  The blondes headband is Pretty Peacock and I used a Stampin’ Write Marker for that.

Then I adhered the DSP strips in place – and used my shiny new Paper Trimmer to cut the excess from the sides and top.  I matted the panel on Purple Posy using Liquid Glue.

I pulled out some Whisper White 1/4″ Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon – from the new catalog – and colored it with my Dark Pretty Peacock Stampin’ Blend.  I wrapped a length of it around the panel – securing it in the back with Glue Dots.

For the sentiment, I inked the top half of the Thanks for the Laughs sentiment in Pretty Peacock and stamped it on a piece of Pool Party card stock.  Then I cleaned the stamp and inked the bottom half of the sentiment and stamped it.  I cut both sentiments with a Stitched So Sweetly Die (available on 3 Jan) and popped them onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I wrapped some Silver Metallic Thread around the ribbon next to the sentiment and tied a snug knot.  Then I adhered a bow from the colored ribbon with a Glue Dot over the thread.  That helps to make it look more like I tied the bow the “right” way!

I added a few Gorgeous Grape gems from the Noble Peacock Rhinestones and the card front was done.

On the inside, I matted a piece of the Best Dressed 6″ x 6″ DSP on Purple Posy and then adhered it to a Whisper Whtie panel and trimmed the excess.  On a diagonal, I added a second sentiment from the Thanks For the Laughs set in Pretty Peacock, then added a Noble Peacock Rhinestone.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Purple Posy mat and into my Pretty Peacock card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got the two ladies on the front…

…and more of the Best Dressed 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  It’s like they were made for each other, isn’t it?  Thanks For the Laughs – with its super-fun sentiments – and the crazy women from Young At Heart go together like Caramel and Sea Salt!  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Buffalo Ride with Me Itty Bitty Christmas

Good morning and Happy Sunday.  Hope your weekend is going great!

I finished my tree-decorating.

I put the skirt around the base, slapped my hands together and declared it “GOOD”!

Decided that sticking all the ornaments on was…sort of pointless.  It’s the lights I really like the best – and…there’s only like two weeks left before it’d be time to undecorate.  So…  I went real Clean-and-Simple this year!

Of course – I haven’t put the ornaments bin away yet….these things take time.  And – I might change my mind. 😉

If you were able to join me last night for my facebook Live video, I appreciate you spending part of your Christmas-prep time with me!  If not – but want to see how to make today’s card – check out the instant-in-the-same-way-that-PONG-was-a-“fast”-video-game replay…

Fair warning – either FB or my internet or some combination thereof was glitchy as could be last night – so…the video comes in two parts – and the BOTH have sound issues.  My apologies in advance.

Part 1 shows you how to do the Triple Time with the Buffalo Check background stamp and the Stamparatus!

Stampin’ Up! Ride With Me Video Tutorial Sneak Peek

Happy Saturday!  I hope this finds you more ready for the Holidays?  I got a lot done yesterday – so….yeah me!  MAYBE I’ll get my Christmas tree decorated this weekend?  It would be nice if it was done and we could enjoy it for longer than a minute this year!

I’ve got a fun little card to share with you tonight, on our Facebook Live video, at 7pm Eastern, over on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page.  It uses the fun little Ride With Me stamp set (from the Annual Catalog) and the Itty Bitty Christmas set from the 2019 Holiday Catalog.  And a fun technique that I think you’ll enjoy!  Take a sneaky peek:

Stampin’ Up! A Snowman Season in Winter Woods 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’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!

The color challenge we’ve got is a fun one – really pretty wide open!  It helped me to simplify my design – which was good!  I’m a little behind on Christmas cards (gasp!  I know….you are SHOCKED!).  So… I needed something pretty – and if I could make a stack of them easy peasy – then…even better!  Winter Woods and a sentiment from the Snowman Season…plus my Stamparatus!…was the answer.  Take a look-see:
