Stampin’ Up! Welcome Easter Chick

‘Sup, y’all!  So – I heard last night on the tv that – apparently…working from home is a GOOD THING!

Duh!  Been doing that for a bunch of years now – and I can attest to the truth of that statement!  Working from home is awesome!

There are some things you have to get used to – and you DO have to be disciplined enough to do the work, but…pajamas.  No makeup.  Bed head.

Like I said – DUH!!

My card for today has nothing whatsoever to do with working from home.  Other than the fact that I was at home while I made it!

It’s another Easter card – I realized today that my count is low.  And…all of a sudden I have to MAIL them instead of hand-delivering them at dinner next Sunday.  🙁  So I pulled out the sweet little Welcome Easter stamp set and some soft Springy-Easter colors.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from this week’s Sunday Stamps challenge.

The color scheme is courtesy of the current Cupcake Inspiration challenge.

Finally – it was handy that the Global Design Challenge was right up my alley this week!

I started with a piece of Petal Pink card stock that was the same size as the front of my card base.  I embossed it in the Basket Weave 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to the front of my Petal Pink card base.

To create the diagonal panel, I used some removable glue dots (it comes on a runner) to tack a piece of Petal Pink Subtles 6″ x 6″ DSP to a So Saffron mat.  I used my Paper Trimmer to cut the diagonal of both pieces at the same time.  Then I used Liquid Glue to adhere the pieces together with the correct spacing.

I used more Liquid Glue to adhere the matted pieces to a Balmy Blue mat to create the card front.

On a piece of Whisper White, I stamped the adorable chick from the Welcome Easter stamp set in Basic Gray ink.  I colored him (her?) with my So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Combo – and a little Dark Mango Melody Blend.  I added some bees in Basic Gray and colored them with my Light So Saffron and Smoky Slate Blends.

Then I cut the chick with a circle Stitched Shapes die.

I cut a Balmy Blue scalloped circle with the Layering Circles Dies.  Then I adhered the art to the scalloped mat and popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I tied a double-length simple bow from Whisper White Solid Baker’s Twine and adhered it to the card front with a Glue Dot.

I stamped the Welcome Easter sentiment in Balmy Blue on Whisper White and cut it with a Stitched Rectangle Die.  Then I added another bee – just cuz they’re so stinkin’ cute!!

I popped it onto the card front – slightly overlapping the art – with Dimensionals, and – that was it for the card front.

On the inside, I stamped a second Welcome Easter sentiment in Balmy Blue on a Whisper White panel.  Then I added the little chick and some bees!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to So Saffron and Balmy Blue mats and into the Petal Pink card base, adhered the card front with more Liquid Glue and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more chick-n-bees….that’s not a thing.  Except it is on my envelope front…

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

Et Voila!  The images in the Welcome Easter stamp set are truly adorable – and the sentiments mean it will work for Easter OR to welcome a new baby!

I hope you like!  And…have all YOUR Easter cards ready to mail or already out the door! 😉

Stampin’ Up! Amazing Ornate Borders Thank You Card

Good morning, y’all!  Hope you had a wonderful weekend and Palm Sunday!

Now, my card today, by rights, should be an anniversary card.

For me and Wayne.  For THIRTY YEARS!  Wha….?  Whe….??  HOW the heck did that happen?!?  Feels like a really long time some days – and others?  Like a blink.  It truly is hard to believe so many years have passed.

Our anniversary rituals are pretty ingrained – so it’s simply devastating to be confined to the house this year.  We usually dress up in our finest – go out to a fancy restaurant…maybe a movie or dancing after.

ROFL!!!  Oh stop – I’m killing myself!!

Our “ritual” is to…pretty much totally forget the day!  Like…three days AFTER, we’ll look at each other and be like…did we miss our Anniversary again?  How many years WAS this!?

Yeah.  We are romantic devils, for certain sure!  So being confined to the house is no big.  🙂

So – my ACTUAL card today is a clean-and-simple thank you card made with elements of the new Ornate Garden Suite – and a couple of embossing folders.  Take a look-see:

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

And it fits perfectly with the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.

I started with a piece of Whisper White card stock that I embossed twice.  The first time was in the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder – and I only did about 1/3 of the right side of the panel.  I embossed the other side in the Scripty 3D Embossing Folder.  Then I matted the panel on So Saffron for the card front.

Using one of the dies in the Ornate Borders die set, I cut out a piece from some Old Olive cardstock.  With my Paper Snips, I carefully snipped off part of the die cut – then I adhered the remainder with Liquid Glue, right over the “seam” between the two embossed portions.

From So Saffron card stock, I cut the three flowers from Ornate Borders and adhered them to the die cut with Liquid Glue.

I stamped the sentiment from Ornate Thanks in Old Olive on Whisper White and cut it with the smallest narrow Stitched Rectangle Die.   Then I popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Each flower got a pink Frosted Flower Embellishment and a Rhinestone Basic Jewel in the middle.  Then, I added a final Rhinestone to the sentiment and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a second sentiment from Ornate Thanks in Old Olive on Whisper White.  Under that, in Blushing Bride, I added another sentiment.  I stamped the little Ornate Style flower in Old Olive and colored it with my Light Old Olive and Light So Saffron Stampin’ Blends.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a So Saffron mat and into my Blushing Bride card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Ornate Style flowers on the front…

…and a little Blushing Bride paper from the Subtles 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I am love love loving all the sentiment combinations we can make with the wonderful – and HUGE! – Ornate Thanks stamp set!  And the bundled Ornate Borders die set gives super fun decorative options!  I hope you like and are ADDING THIS SUITE to your stash!!  Be sure to check out my money-saving limited time Special Bundle offer down below!

Finn Fan Fix


Warning – non-Finn-Finn-Fan Fix ahead! 😉

So…my day revolves around satisfying every whim of my tyrannical little cat.

She wants three things from me.

Food – a very specific couple of kinds (don’t even TRY to mess with this) – and as frequently as it occurs to her to want said food.

Pettings – on her timeline and to her exacting specification.

Laptime.

Mornings go like….wake up.  Feed the cat.  Put the dog out.  Make my coffee.  Put dog bone in bowl.  Let dog in.  Pick up cat bowl (unless I just WANT Finn to clean it all up).  Then…sit down and…hold the cat.

Evenings.  Feed the cat.  Feed the dog.  Feed the people.  Sit down and…yes.  Hold the cat.

She’s an old lady.  Gonna be a bit of a hole when she leaves us, wouldn’t you say?

In totally different news… the other day on one of my videos, I mentioned freezing eggs.  Here’s what they look like…

I fork-beat one or two eggs in a bowl and pour them into a silicone ice cube tray (I got this one on Amazon but it’s showing out of stock):

Freeze.  The cubes pop out super easy and then I just store them in gallon freezer bags.  Awesome for scrambled eggs or recipes needing eggs!  They are, however, not even SORT of good if you’re wanting an egg over easy!  😉

Stampin’ Up! Wildly Happy with a 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 – it’s a Theme Challenge from the talented LeAnne this week and it’ll for sure jump-start your creative mojo!  I hope you’ll come and play along.  🙂

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

When I saw the theme for this week, I first thought “giraffe”.  Loves me some giraffes.  But then I remembered that I also kinda love elephants.  So…I pulled out the sweet Wildly Happy stamp set and a few die sets and….take a look-see:

And here’s this week’s Paper Players Theme challenge!  Hope you’ll challenge your inner zoologist and join the fun and show us your projects!  I can’t wait to see what you create!  🙂

And the layout is from the CAS(E) This Sketch challenge this week!

This one is just a few die cuts and some stamping – easy peasy!  So…here we go!

I started with a panel of Whisper White and, in the bottom corner, I stamped the sweet little sentiment from the Wildly Happy set in Granny Apple Green.  Then I ran the panel thru the die cutting/embossing machine in the Tufted 3D Embossing Folder.  I matted the panel on Daffodil Delight for the card front.

Using Liquid Glue, I adhered an Ornate Layers rectangle die cut from Granny Apple Green Brights 6″ x 6″ DSP.

The next layer – from the Stitched So Sweetly die set – is cut from Daffodil Delight DSP (also in the Brights pack) and adhered with Liquid Glue.

For the art, I stamped the sweet elephant mama and baby in Gray Granite on Whisper White and cut it with a square Stitched Shapes Die.  Then I colored them with my Gray Granite Stampin’ Blends Combo Pack and popped them onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a Granny Apple Green Glitter Enamel Dot and, with a Glue Dot, a small bow tied from Daffodil Delight 1/4″ Ruched Ribbon and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a second sentiment from Wildly Happy in Granny Apple Green on a Whisper White panel. A Daffodil Delight-matted strip of Granny Apple Green Brights 6″ x 6″ DSP across the bottom finished it off.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Daffodil Delight mat and into my Granny Apple Green card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got mom and kid on the front…

…and some Daffodil Delight Brights 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap!

Et Voila!  Wildly Happy is such a sweet little stamp set – with four different little “families” and several nice sentiments in beautiful fonts!

And the Tufted background, Ornate Layers, Stitched So Sweetly and Stitched Shapes all worked to give this card lots of texture and fun, don’t you think?  This exact card could be made more gender-specific just by picking different DSP  and ink colors – and any of the four animals groupings would make for an adorable card!  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Wildly Happy Video Tutorial Sneak Peek

Morning, y’all!  Welcome to the weekend!  GA is officially locked down.

I DID go to Sam’s yesterday – I HAD to have my bags of shredded lettuce.  It’s a mainstay of my diet program and…I gotta come out the other side of this still maintaining my weight.  So…needs must.  I was masked and armed with a huge bottle of Lysol Wipes.  Wiped everything as I took it off the shelf, scanned the barcode (to avoid the nasty cash register area), tucked each item into one of my Thirty One Totes that I’d placed in the basket, wiped it all AGAIN as I put it in the car.  Sprayed the totes with Lysol when I got home.  Shucked my clothes at the washer and took a shower.

I’m trying not to buy into the whole “cray cray” but…I’m definitely nibbling at the edges! 😉

So…tonight, let’s get together on Facebook – I’ll go live at 7pm Eastern, over on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page.  We’ll make a sweet and easy little new baby card, using the Wildly Happy stamp set (from the Annual Catalog).  Take a sneaky peek!

Yep – it’s in one of my fave color schemes!

Hope you’ll be able to join me.

Tonight.  7pm eastern.  Right here.

Stampin’ Up! Easter Promise on Pressed Petals with a Video Tutorial!

Good Friday morning, y’all!  It’s day 498 of Social Distancing.

Not really – just sort of feels like it is, doesn’t it??   It’s really starting to get real – another 30 days??  AND – Georgia just followed other states by issuing a Stay Home Order starting today.  Good idea – it’s NECESSARY.  But…I feel pretty confident that NO ONE will believe me when I whine that having my house cleaned (and not by me!)….IS essential!

And now you know.  I AM a first-world-sissy-baby.

C’mon, Mare – you’ve got a house, and food, and electricity.  The dog and cat and horses have food.  Wayne can fix or cobble together anything we need.  ZEWS 1 is on the job.  We’re healthy – and getting to the two-weeks-since-we’ve-been-anywhere-so-surely-that-means-we’re-completely-healthy point.  So…waaaaa.

Sorry.  I’m over it now.

Since along with a house and power comes internet (Thank goodness!) I was able to go live yesterday on my YouTube channel.  If you were able to join me – I appreciate you spending some of your day with me!  If not, but you’d like to see the replay on YouTube…here ’tis!

The card we made is a pretty – and pretty easy!! – Easter card, using the Easter Promise stamp set from the Jan – Jun Mini Catalog, a sweet Ornate Layers Die cut and some Pressed Petals Specialty DSP (2019-2020 Annual Catalog).  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one came from the Mojo Monday challenge…I THINK you can see which sketch I used! 😉

 

And the Easter theme fits right into the Inspire. Create.  Challenge!

I started with some of the pretty sheet music paper from the Pressed Petals Specialty DSP and matted it on So Saffron for the card front.

Next, with the long, narrow die from the new Ornate Layers Die Set, I cut a Purple Posy rectangle.  I ran it thru the die cutting machine in the Scripty 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

Then, I matted a strip of wood-grain Pressed Petals Specialty DSP on So Saffron and adhered it over top with Liquid Glue.

I cut a Very Vanilla rectangle with the next-to-largest Stitched So Sweetly die and stamped the big Easter Promise sentiment in Mossy Meadow.

Next to it – also in Mossy Meadow – I added the floral spray.

I colored the flowers with my Purple Posy Stampin’ Blends Combo and the stems with my Light Mossy Meadow Blend.

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

I used a Glue Dot to adhere a Linen Thread double-loop bow, which I topped with a purple Frosted Flower Embellishment and a Champagne Rhinestone.  And that was it for the card front.

Speaking of Glue Dots, though…

Other side of the room by my photo box.  No.  Clue.  Why.  🤷‍♀️

Anywho….

For the inside, I stamped a second sentiment from Easter Promise in Mossy Meadow on a Very Vanilla panel.  I added the flowers, in Mossy Meadow, again in the corner, coloring them as I’d done on the front.

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

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got more Easter Promises flowers on the front…

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

Et Voila!  Spring and Easter all rolled up in one!  Don’t let the Easter Promise stamp set – with it’s elegant flowers and simple sentiments – pass you by!  Easter is coming soon – and cards with messages of the hope of Easter are going to be especially welcome this year, I’m thinking!

I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips Happy Easter Happy Spring!

Good morning!  Happy St. Patrick’s Day! 🙂

Do you know that there’s only two more days of winter??  That’s right – on Thursday, Spring will be sprunged – YEAH!!!

And my card today is a celebration of Spring.  And Easter!  Courtesy of the gorgeous Timeless Tulips stamp set and the bundled Tulip Builder Punch!  Take a look-see:

I used the FUSION challenge – both sides, really.  Ish!

I started with a piece of Whisper White that I embossed in the Basket Weave 3D Embossing Folder and matted on Highland Heather for the card front.

I cut a piece of Seaside Spray paper from the 2019-2021 In Color 6″ x 6″ DSP, matted it on Highland Heather and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I stamped a whole bouquet of tulips using the large flower from Timeless Tulips – three in Highland Heather and two in Daffodil Delight.  I also stamped a few leaves in Granny Apple Green and a few stems.

I punched all the flowers and leaves with the Tulip Builder Punch, and did a quick fussy cut of the stems.

The sentiment, from Timeless Tulips, is stamped in Highland Heather on Whisper White and cut with a Rectangle Stitched Die.

I laid all the pieces and parts out…including a little bow tied from some Whisper White 1/4″ Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon…and took my picture…

 

Then I picked up the sentiment…

…and used that picture to adhere everything to the card front with a combination of Liquid Glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals (and a Glue Dot for the bow!).  I ended with the sentiment on top – popped over the bow with Dimensionals.

I added a few Granny Apple Green Glitter Enamel Dots and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a Highland Heather tulip and a Granny Apple Green stem and leaves to a Whisper White panel.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Highland Heather mat and into my Seaside Spray card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another Highland Heather and Granny Apple Green tulip on the front…

…and more of the Seaside Spray DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  The Timeless Tulips bundle – which includes the Tulip Builder Punch – was one of the first things I got from the 2020 Jan-Jun Mini Catalog – and it’s just awesome!

I hope you like – and ASSUME you’ve already got this bundle.  If not…you know what you need to do! 😉

Stampin’ Up! Daisy Lane Ornate Garden Treat Basket – with Video Tutorial!

Good Friday morning, y’all!!  I feel obligated to say….stop touching your face and wash your hands.

There.  Public Service Announcement….DONE!

If you were able to join me for my YouTube Live Video yesterday –  I appreciate you spending some of your day with me!  If not, but you’d like to see the replay on YouTube…here ’tis!

I got the idea for this sweet treat basket from my friend Sue Prather – who gave all of us one last weekend at our Spring STAMPede event!

This is so easy. 🙂

Where Sue used some Best Dressed DSP, I used some of the Ornate Garden Specialty DSP – from the Early Release Ornate Garden Suite (which y’all can get on 1 April – or NOW if you decide to join the team).  I decorated mine with sweet Daisy Lane flowers.  Take a look-see:

With my Simply Scored board, I scored at 2″ and 4″ on one side of the 6″ x 6″ piece of DSP – rotated the paper 90 degrees (doesn’t matter which way) – and scored again at 2″ and 4″.

Next, I used my Paper Snips to cut from the edge of the paper to the crossing score line.  I did that on two opposing sides.  As shown by the dotted lines below.

When I was done snip-snipping, my paper looked like this:

I placed Tear-and-Tape Adhesive on the inside of the DSP on opposite corners…

Then I removed the tape and brought the tips of the outside corners together – tucking the center square panel on the inside.

The end result…

I used some Liquid Glue to adhere the inside flap so that it would help to make everything more secure and tidier! 🙂

Ready to decorate!

I used a length (about 7 1/2″) of 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim (from the Tropical Oasis Suite) for the handle – using a craft stapler to adhere it on the inside of the basket at the points.

On a piece of Whisper White, I stamped two each of the large and small daisies from the Daisy Lane set in Daffodil Delight.  Then I punched them with the Daisy Punch and the Medium Daisy Punch.

 

With the Leaf Punch, I punched three Mint Macaron and three Old Olive leaves.  I creased each little leaf with my fingers and adhered three each on both sides of the basket with Liquid Glue.

I popped the small daisies atop the large daisies with a Stampin’ Dimensional.  Then I adhered them over the top of the leaves with Liquid Glue.

A Perennial Essence Flower Center in the middle of each daisy finished off my Spring Baskets!

Et Voila!  These little baskets are so cute and so easy and…how many ways can you think of to use them?  Mother’s Day?  Easter Brunch?  May Day?  Baby Shower?  Bridal Shower?  Think of all the gorgeous papers we have to choose from and the myriad of decorative options we’ve got with Stampin’ UP!  The Daisy Lane and two Daisy Punches are spot-on-perfect for any and everything Spring-y!!  And…the paper.  The Ornate Garden Specialty DSP is gorgeous!!  I hope you like – and will give these a try right now!!

Yesterday we started hardening the transplants.

Toted all the little trays and water-bottle “pots” to just outside the garage door for a little while in the afternoon.  Gotta toughen up the plants in preparation for going in the beds!!

And I cut some daffodils (and a couple of tulip tree flowers!!)

It’s just the best time of year, isn’t it?!?

Finn supervised from the golf-cart.

That’s kind of his jam.  Supervising.

If he had actual hands – not adorable paw-hands, he’d be holding a coffee cup in one hand and have the other in his pocket in the ways of site supervisors the world over.

No offense to site supervisors! 😉

Stampin’ Up! Ornate Layers Sneak Peek with Daisy Lane

Good morning, y’all!  It’s 7am.  Sort of.  More like 6am.  Or is it?

I LOVE Daylight Savings Time.  I hope and wish for this to be THE time year-round.  Long evenings with that perfect summer light.  I wait and anticipate the return of DST every winter!  I do, however, hate changing back and forth.

In fact, apparently I hate it so much that for the first time…ever?!? – I totally spaced changing my clocks on Saturday night.  I ALWAYS change them before I go to bed.  Especially for the Spring forward time change.

Not this year.  Got up on Sunday at my normal time of 430 (thank you, Katy) – and made my coffee, fed the braticus, let the dog out and back in.   Sat down in my chair with my coffee and turned on the tv.  And saw the clock on the DVR.  My confusion was….extreme.  HOW did it take me an entire HOUR to do the things that take me 15 minutes EVERY SINGLE DAY!?

And then…I realized what I’d done.  Or…hadn’t done.  And BOOM.  Just like that – I lost an hour of the day!

Worst.  Feeling.  Ever. 🙁

I was behind the whole rest of the day.

But – I did finally get a card made for y’all!  Yeah!!  And – it’s a combination of some old and some new.  Daisy Lane, with both Daisy Punches, plays well with the Ornate Layers Dies and some Ornate Garden Specialty DSP (remember these are coming in the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog – and you’re going to get your hands on them early on 1 April!).  Take a look-see:

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

And – I liked it for the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge, too!

I started with some of the new Ornate Garden Specialty DSP that I matted on Mint Macaron for the card front.

The Whisper White panel is cut using one of the dies in the new Ornate Layers Die set.  See it there?  Right in the middle of the bottom set.  That’s the one I used!

I ran it thru the die cutting machine three times to create the three shapes in the sketch.

Then I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Mint Macaron mat and onto the card front.

Using the leaves in the Nature’s Thoughts die set from the new Coordination Product Release, I cut three “feathers” – two in Old Olive and one in Mint Macaron.

On a piece of Whisper White, I stamped the large daisy from the Daisy Lane set in stamped-off-once Terracotta Tile and cut it with the Daisy Punch.  I stamped two of the small daisy in stamped-off-TWICE Terracotta Tile – and cut them with the Medium Daisy Punch.

Using my Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends Combo Pack, I colored the daisies and then adhered them together with Liquid Glue.

On another piece of Whisper White, I stamped a sentiment from Daisy Lane in Old Olive.  Then I cut it with the next-to-smallest rectangle die in the Stitched So Sweetly Die set.

I laid out the elements on my card front until it said “yep – THERE it is” – and took a picture.

To make it easier to put it all together, I picked up my daisy and sentiment and adhered them together with Liquid Glue.

Then I put all the pieces together onto the card front.  I used Liquid Glue to adhere the Old Olive feathers….errr leaves.  Then some Glue Dots for a length of Mint Macaron twine from the Nature’s Twine pack.  Then I added the Mint Macaron leaf/feather with a couple of Dimensionals.

The final piece was to add the flower/sentiment combination element with some Dimensionals.

I used a few of the new Gilded Gems (from the Ornate Garden Suite) – a large one in the middle of the flower and several more here and there – and the card front was done!

Oh – did you see that?  It’s a cool little doohickey for holding up cards!  We all got one at the Spring STAMPede event on Saturday!

3-D Printing.  Cool, huh?? Thanks, Sandra Hernandez!! 🙂

Anywho…on the inside, I added a second sentiment from Daisy Lane in Old Olive on a Whisper White panel.  Across the bottom I added a strip of Mint Macaron card stock and another strip of the Ornate Garden Specialty DSP.  Then I added another Gilded Gem.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Mint Macaron 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 another daisy on the front – in full-strength Terracotta Tile…

…and more of the Ornate Garden Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Daisy Lane is a perfect harbinger of SPRING!!  And – just right for the first real day of DST!  I love that we can punch TWO sizes of the pretty daisies.  And it’s really looking like the elements in the Ornate Garden Suite will not only work together perfectly but will ALSO work well with so many of our much-loved stamp sets and goodies!  I hope you like!

Want the Ornate Garden Suite elements RIGHT NOW??  Well – folks who join Stampin’ Up! right now can select Ornate Garden to help fill your Starter Kit!  And – on top of your Starter Kit –  you’ll ALSO get the new Mini Cutter, DSP Sampler Pack and a FREE Stamp Set of your choice.  All with FREE SHIPPING!  Whoo-hoo!  Give me a holler and let me get you set up – Sale-A-Bration (and all the “extras”!) ends on 31 March.

Sometimes Finny and I have some pretty good conversations.

I’m pretty funny – at least….that’s what HE tells me!

I’ll tell a good one and he just laughs and laughs!!

He also thinks I’m danged smart.

And since he’s awfully smart, too, we frequently have some pretty good discussions about a lot of deep subjects.

Like….what if Luke had run into Kirk instead of ObiWan?  Or…what if Tony Stark had been bitten by a radioactive spider and Peter Parker was trapped in the cave??

Yeah.  THAT level of deep.

Stampin’ Up! Flowering Foils Tags in Bloom!

Happy Happy Hawwwmp Day!!  Hope your week is going swimmingly!

Today is the second day of the Second Release for Sale-A-Bration!  Be sure to check out the five new FREEBIES that you can pick up thru the end of March! 🙂

My card today uses TWO of the new SAB goodies – the Tags in Bloom stamp set (free with a $100 purchase before shipping and tax) and the Flowering Foils Specialty DSP (a level 1 – $50 goody!).  Take a look-see:

The Tags in Bloom stamp set coordinates with the Label My Lovely and Label Me Fancy Punches from the 2020 Jan – Jun Mini Catalog!

The layout for this card was inspired by the sketch at CAS(E) This Sketch this week!

I started with a panel of Mint Macaron that I embossed in the Basket Weave 3D Embossing Folder and matted on Melon Mambo for the card front.

I picked a flower-strewn design from the  Flowering Foils Specialty DSP and used my Stampin’ Blends Combo Packs in Petal Pink, Mint Macaron and Lovely Lipstick to color the flowers, leaves and berries.  Then I adhered the panel to the card front with Liquid Glue.

The strip across the middle is a piece of Mint Macaron Subtles 6″ x 6″ DSP, matted on Mint Macaron and adhered with Liquid Glue.

Then I added a Pearlized Doily with more Liquid Glue.

On a piece of Whisper White, I stamped the sentiment from Tags in Bloom in Melon Mambo.  Around it, I stamped the stitched label image in Mint Macaron.  Then I punched it out with the Label Me Lovely punch.  I popped the label onto the Doily with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a Melon Mambo gem from the Noble Peacock Rhinestones and the card front was done.  Easy and also…peasy! 😉

On the inside, I added a second sentiment from Tags in Bloom in Melon Mambo to a Whisper White panel.  In the corner, I stamped the flowers and leaf from the set.  For the flowers, I used full-strength Petal Pink or Melon Mambo for the outline images – and stamped-off-once versions of the same colors for the fill images.  The leaf is done in full-strength Mint Macaron.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Melon Mambo mat and into my Whisper White card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whsiper White Medium Envelope got more of the Tags in Bloom flowers and leaf on the front…

…and more of the Mint Macaron DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I love this Tags in Bloom set – and love it even more for coordinating with TWO punches from the Mini Catalog (and those punches are already in perfect coordination with the wonderful Layered With Kindness stamp set from the Mini!

The Flowering Foils Specialty DSP is gorgeous and perfect for coloring – you’ll get 12 one-sided pieces of 12″ x 12″ paper in the pack with your $50 purchase!

I hope you like! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Thanks for the Laughs My Meadow 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 sketch 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!

Now – y’all know (I think?) that I love the angled-panel design element on a card.  So – I was tickled when I saw our challenge this week.  I combined some Lily Impressions DSP and the My Meadow and Thanks for the Laughs stamp sets to create my project for you today.  Take a look-see:

And here’s our sketch!

I started with a piece of Gray Granite card stock that I embossed in the Stone 3D Embossing Folder (which is bundled with the Power of Hope stamp set – and you can get it for FREE during Sale-A-Bration with a $100 purchase!).  I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to the front of my Gray Granite card base.

I used the largest Stitched So Sweetly rectangle die to cut some Gorgeous Grape paper from the Lily Impressions DSP, which I adhered with Liquid Glue at an angle onto the card front.

For the art panel – I cut the same size rectangle from Whisper White.  Then I built my little scene using the wonderful My Meadow stamp set – which is photopolymer, so super easy to get images right where you need them! 🙂

I used Balmy Blue to create a stream.  Then, with my Stamparatus, I stamped the bridge in Crumb Cake.  Using my Crushed Curry Stampin’ Write Marker – I colored part of the bridge image and stamped it again.

I added trees in Soft Suede and used the leaves image to stamp multiple times in Old Olive and Granny Apple Green.  I also added hillsides on either side of the bridge in Granny Apple Green.

Some Granny Apple Green grass with Gorgeous Grape flowers run across the bottom of the panel.  The clouds – another image from the set – are stamped in stamped-off-once Balmy Blue.

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

I used some SNAIL to adhere a length of Granny Apple Green 1/2″ Textured Weave Ribbon.

For the Thanks for the Laughs sentiment, I used Gorgeous Grape ink to stamp it on Whisper White.  A Granny Apple Green and Gorgeous Grape flower adds a little oomph.

I cut the sentiment with a Stitched Rectangle Die and popped it on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  A green Noble Peacock Rhinestone finished the sentiment and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a second Thanks for the Laughs sentiment in Gorgeous Grape.  Some more trees in Soft Suede, Granny Apple Green and Old Olive in the corner, plus some flowers brought it all home.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere another angled piece of Lily Impressions DSP to the inside of my card front, then added the sentiment panel over that – and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more trees on the front….

…and more of the Gorgeous Grape Lily Impressions DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  My Meadow is one of the fun scene-builder stamp sets that Stampin’ Up! offers!

Since it’s an image-only set,  the sky’s the limit on what sentiments you add to make your card perfect for its intended use!  And – speaking of sentiments – the Thanks for the Laughs set is so much fun – with witty sentiments and serious sentiments.  Perfect!

I hope you like!
