Stampin’ Up! Poppy Moments to Last a Lifetime 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!

I made a card for you today that would be perfect for a wedding – using the Last a Lifetime stamp set and some wonderful Poppy Moments flowers.  Plus – a little Breathtaking Bouquet (which is on the Retiring List!).  Take a look-see:

And – here’s our sketch!

And I was inspired by the gorgeous bouquet, white accents and romantic feel in The Card Concept photo inspiration. I’d say my card is somewhere between Clean and Layered and Shabby Chic and Vintage!

I started by using my Stamparatus to stamp the big, beautiful floral image from the Breathtaking Bouquet background set in Pool Party on a piece of Whisper White.  Then I matted it on a piece of Pool Party with Liquid Glue for the card front.

Next, I used a die in the new Ornate Layers Die set to cut a Pool Party frame, embossed it in the Scripty 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I stamped the Last a Lifetime sentiment in Pool Party on a piece of Whisper White and cut it out with the long die in the Ornate Layers set.

I adhered the sentiment to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I pulled out my Poppy Moments die set and used the leaves dies to cut two leaves in Vellum and two in Pool Party.  I also cut a couple of Whisper White berries with my go-to berries die in the Frosted Bouquet set.  Y’all – this die set is SO cool – and it’s GOING AWAY!!  GET IT NOW!! 🙁

I cut two solid flowers in Whisper White, two detailed flowers and several Pool Party centers. Using the splotch image in Painted Poppies, I stamped the flowers in Pool Party, then adhered the detailed flowers to the solid flowers using Liquid Glue (just in the middle).   I added the Pool Party centers with more Liquid Glue.

The final piece to prepare was a large-ish bow tied from Whisper White 1/4″ Crinkled Seam Binding.

I dry fit everything and took my pictures…

…then got busy adhering everything with Liquid Glue.  Finally, I popped the flowers back in place with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I finished off the card front with a few Pool Party gems from the Holiday Rhinestone pack – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a second Last a Lifetime sentiment in Pool Party to a Whisper White panel.  Around the top and bottom edges, I added the floral image from Last a Lifetime, also in Pool Party.  A single Holiday Rhinestone finished it off.

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more of the Last a Lifetime floral image in Pool Party on the front…

…and I added some script-covered Pool Party Subtles 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Poppies in white and blue!  Love them – and was SO glad to see that the Poppy Moments dies will be carrying over!  And – so is the Last a Lifetime set!  Whoo-hoo!!

I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Best Dressed Very Versailles 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!

I decided to use a little of the Best Dressed DSP for this one, and I paired it up with the pretty Very Versailles set from the Annual Catalog.  Take a look-see:

And here’s our color challenge!

I started with an Old Olive design from the Best Dressed DSP pack and used the leaves and handwriting stamps in the Very Versailles stamp set to stamp the images multiple times on the panel.  Then I matted it on Purple Posy for the card front.

For the flower – I pulled out the Shimmer Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper and carefully snipped out the dandelion.  I used Liquid Glue to adhere it to the card front.

I cut a strip of the paper from an edge – it’s so shimmery and pretty! – and stamped a Very Versailles sentiment onto it in Blackberry Bliss ink.

I snipped a banner end on the right side and popped the banner onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered a Bird Ballad Trinket with a Glue Dot, then added a little Blackberry Bliss Nature’s Twine bow.  A couple three small Purple Posy 2019-2021 Faceted Dots finished off the card front.  🙂

On the inside, I added a second Very Versailles sentiment in Blackberry Bliss to a Very Vanilla panel.  I added Old Olive leaves and handwriting and a Purple Posy Faceted Dot.

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

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got more of the Very Versailles images in Old Olive on the front…

…and more Best Dressed DSP on the envelope flap (complete with some leaves and handwriting!).

Et Voila!  The Very Versailles stamp set is so pretty – that fall of leaves is wonderful, especially paired with the pretty script handwriting image and sentiments.  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Forever Blossoms with Video Tutorial for the Paper Players

Hey y’all – it’s Sunday, which means I’ve got another fun challenge for you from the Paper Players – it’s a Color Challenge from the talented JayDee 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!

The color palette for our challenge didn’t really “scream” one thing or another when I saw it – which meant it was wide open for me!  I finally decided to play with a sponging and silhouette technique – using the pretty floral from the Forever Blossoms stamp set.  Take a look-see:

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

The layout is from the Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

This is really easy so – I hope you’ll try it!

I started with a Whisper White panel for the card front.   From a second, identically sized, piece of card stock, I cut a Stitched Nested Label – this one is 4 1/4″ from tip-to-tip.

Using repositionable adhesive (like this one), I tacked the die cut panel to the Whisper White panel.

With sponge wedges, I sponged the middle of the opening with So Saffron.  I used Seaside Spray on the top and bottom.  Go easy – start lightly and off the edge with your sponge.  🙂

When I had the color to the depth that I wanted it, I picked up my mask and used a rubber eraser to remove the little adhesive dots.

I placed the panel in my Stamparatus and used it to stamp the big floral image from Forever Blossoms in Granite Gray.  I stamped it a couple of times to get the image as dark as I wanted.

I stamped the Forever Blossoms sentiment in Gray Granite and then added some faux stitches around the shape with my Gray Granite Stampin’ Write Marker.

I matted the panel on So Saffron for the card front.  With my Dark So Saffron Stampin’ Blend, I colored three Pearl Basic Jewels and adhered them here and there.  And that was it for the card front!

On the inside, I stamped a second sentiment from Forever Blossoms in Gray Granite on Whisper White.  I added part of the large floral image in Gray Granite – and lightly colored just the middles of the flowers with the Dark So Saffron Blend.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a So Saffron 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 the Forever Blossoms image again in Gray Granite and So Saffron on the front…

…and some Seaside Spray 2019-2021 In Color 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Mark the day – no layering, no bows, minimal bling! – is this REALLY a Mary card?!?  Yes – ’tis!  I love how this Forever Blossoms stamp set worked for the silhouetted image – perfect without die cutting or adding any “extras” to it.  It’s just that gorgeous of an image!  I hope you like!

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

Now – before you reach for your ink and papers, check out what our amazing team has created to inspire you this week:

Stampin’ Up! Sentimental Sailing Home Fun Fold with Video Tutorial

Well – it’s Good Friday.  Literally.

Do you have a three-day weekend?  Maybe you have today “off” instead?   By which, of course, I mean…are/will you be wearing your “weekend pajamas” or your “go to work” pajamas??  I am SURE you’ll be wearing your DRESS pajamas on Easter Sunday, right??  I know I for sure will be! 😎

Since this is pretty much business-as-usual for us, I was able to do a live YouTube video yesterday.  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!

I wanted another card to send as part of the Bee The Blessing Card Drive being sponsored by Stamp-N-Storage and I thought it would be good to make a couple with a more masculine feel.  So….the Come Sail Away suite called!  For the sample card – I used the DSP in Mossy Meadow colors – for the video…I did it again in Night of Navy.  Both are identical and use the Sailing Home, So Sentimental and Ornate Thanks stamp sets.  Take a look-see:

I love this modified gate-card with its belly-band, but I wanted it to be a little more traditional (and easier to display!).

So – I started with a Crumb Cake card base in my normal portrait tent-fold orientation.  The gate-fold becomes the matted card front.

I cut a piece of Mossy Meadow cardstock at 5 1/4″ x 8″ and scored it along the long side at 2″ and 6″.  Then I marked each short end at 2 5/8″ and used my Paper Trimmer to cut the “gates” into points.

I cut two strips of Come Sail Away DSP, cut them both into points and adhered them to the gates with Liquid Glue.

On the inside, I adhered a second design of the Come Sail Away DSP to a Mossy Meadow mat and then inside the gate-fold with Liquid Glue.

I adhered the entire panel to the front of the Crumb Cake card base with Liquid Glue.

On a strip of Crumb Cake cardstock, I stamped the compass image from the Sailing Home stamp set multiple times in Crumb Cake ink.  Then I wrapped the strip around the card base and adhered the ends together with Liquid Glue.

The front sentiment, from So Sentimental, is stamped in Mossy Meadow on Whisper White and cut with the larger label die in the bundled Stitched So Sweetly Die set.  Over the sentiment, in Crumb Cake, I added the Sailing Home compass.  Then I adhered the label to the belly band with Liquid Glue.

I pulled off the belly band to work on the inside.  On a piece of Whisper White, I stamped a perfect sentiment from Sailing Home in Mossy Meadow.  I added a Crumb Cake anchor and cut it with the next-to-largest rectangle in the Stitched So Sweetly dies.  Then, I adhered it on the inside with Liquid Glue – ensuring it would be hidden by the belly-band.

I replaced the belly band and added a Sail Away Trinkets anchor with a Glue Dot.  On this Mossy Meadow card, I used a double-length of Line Thread to tie a simple bow and adhered it with a Glue Dot.  On the Night of Navy version, I used a single-length of Night of Navy/Sahara Sand Baker’s Twine.

Just a note – I would send this card with the belly band around the just the front of the card base/gate-fold (versus around the entire card).  That let’s the recipient see the card in its best “display mode”!  😉

On the inside of the card, I added a sentiment from Ornate Thanks in Mossy Meadow on a Whisper White panel.  In the corner, I added the anchor in Crumb Cake and the compass in stamped-off-once Crumb Cake.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Mossy Meadow mat and into the card base and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got the Sailing Home anchor and compass on the front…

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

Et Voila!  It’s easy to lose track of the super-cool goodies in the Annual Catalog, what with Sale-A-Bration and the Jan-Jun mini, isn’t it?  But…don’t!  The Come Sail Away Suite – anchored by the Sailing Home Bundle (see what I did there?!?) – is chock-full of wonderful products that are really awesome for creating masculine projects!  The Come Sail Away DSP let me quickly make two cards – using the same stamp sets and designs…

So Sentimental with the WUNNERMUS Stitched So Sweetly Dies, melds in nicely – and, of course, there aren’t enough words for me to express how much I love the Ornate Thanks set and all the perfect sentiments it contains!  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Seriously the Best Ornate Layers 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!

I wanted to make a card to send over to Stamp-N-Storage for their Bee A Blessing Card Drive – so I needed a not-too-sappy/lovey sentiment – but one that still said what I wanted to say.  Enter…Seriously the Best!  Now this is a stamp set that coordinates with the Seriously the Best Project Kit.  I didn’t use the kit for this card – instead, I called on Ornate Layers and some… Mosaic Mood Specialty DSP.  Take a look-see:

And here’s our sketch – I laid it down on its side.

I started with some Terracotta Tile paper from the Mosaic Mood Specialty DSP that I matted on Mint Macaron for the card front.

Next up is a Mint Macaron die cut frame – from the Ornate Layers Die set.  I adhered that directly to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I stamped the big sentiment from Seriously the Best in Mint Macaron on Whisper White.  Then I cut it with a Rectangle Stitched Die.  On each corner, in Mossy Meadow, I added the leaves image from Seriously the Best.

I popped the sentiment panel over the Ornate Layers die cut with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I tied a small bow with the Terracotta Tile ribbon from the Ornate Garden Ribbon Combo Pack and adhered it in the corner with a Glue Dot.

I added a few Gilded Gems and the clean-and-simple card front was done!

On the inside, I added the perfectly-perfect second sentiment from Seriously the Best in Mint Macaron on Whisper White.  In the corners, I added the leaves in Mossy Meadow.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Mint Macaron 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 another Mossy Meadow leaves image on the front…

…and more of the Mosaic Mood Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  SUUUUUper quick and easy to make multiples of right quick – think…Stamparatus!  The Seriously the Best set is pretty awesome – multiple sentiments and a couple of simple images…

…and, while I didn’t use it for this card, the set coordinates with the fun Seriously the Best Project Kit – which I am totally going to pull out SOON!

I hope you like – and will add the Seriously the Best stamp set (and Project Kit!) to your stash!

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

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.

Have I told you that Finn likes peppermints?

I’m sure I have.

Turns out he even likes…

…wrappers.

Yes – he dug one (or five…) out of the trash…
