Stampin’ Up! Dear Doily Video Sneak Peek

Good morning, y’all!  It’s the weekend!  And it is – apparently! – a weekend of change!

So – I was SUPPOSED to be at work today but…found out yesterday that it’s going to be too windy to do our event today.  I sure didn’t think wind was going to be a thing for this test, but…whatever!  We’ve moved the whole day to tomorrow.  Which has it’s own issues – not least of which is that I’ll not be able to do our Sunday night video.

Well – not on SUNDAY, at least!  I really don’t want to miss my time with you guys, so we’re going to try to get together tonight!  Or – more accurately, I’ll be live on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page at 7pm Eastern (please note it’s a DAY early AND an HOUR early!!) – and hoping that you can all join me!

We’ll be making a fun little card using the Dear Doily stamp set.  Take a sneaky peek!

I know it’s late notice, but…flexibility is the key to modern airpower.  And…Facebook Live videos?!? 🙂

Hope to see you tonight.  7pm Eastern.  Right here.

Stampin’ Up! Golden Afternoon Sympathy Card

Good morning!  Well – one week is (almost!) in the books!  And it’s been a busy – and WET!! – one!

Sheesh – on Thursday it just rained buckets and tons.  And it was cold.  Really just a nasty day.  My poor guys were soaked to the skin. 🙁  I’m hoping that today is a little better – but…I’m not holding my breath.  Wishing I’d brought some waders! 😉

My card today is a sympathy card – don’t have a need for it now, but it’s never bad to have one on deck, right?  I used the beautiful Golden Afternoon stamp set and made a super clean-and-simple card.  Take a look-see:

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

The colors are from the As You See It challenge.

And – since this is about as close as I’ll ever be able to get to making a “single layer” card…I’m entering it in The Paper Players challenge this week! 🙂

I started with a smaller-than-usual piece of Very Vanilla card stock and used my Stamparatus to stamp the big image from Golden Afternoon in Soft Suede near the side of the panel.

I used my Light and Dark Shaded Spruce, Granny Apple Green and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends to color the image.

Then I cut a Rectangle Stitched Framelit from the panel.

Again using my Stamparatus, I stamped the sentiment from Golden Afternoon in Shaded Spruce.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the entire panel – including the die cut rectangle – to a Soft Suede mat.

Finally, I added some faux stitches with my Sahara Sand Stampin’ Write Marker and the card front was done!

On the inside, I used my Stamparatus to do a little “double time” stamping.  I stamped the smaller image from Golden Afternoon in Soft Suede on the back of the card base, with a smaller piece (the inner liner) stacked on top.  Then I picked up the smaller piece and stamped the back of the card a second time to “complete” the image!

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

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got another of the small Golden Afternoon images on the front…

…and I added the birds image to the envelope flap in Soft Suede.

Et Voila!  Clean and simple – but…I like the die cut rectangle sort of calling out the pretty oak tree from Golden Afternoon!  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Needlepoint Flowers 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 comes up with!  I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop.

I decided to use the Needle & Thread stamp set with the bundled Needlepoint Elements Framelits for this one – it just made sense to me!  Take a look-see:

Our color challenge is probably pretty obvious…

And I used the CAS(E) This Sketch challenge for my layout!

I started with a piece of Crushed Curry paper from the Regals 6″ x6″ DSP and matted it on Old Olive for the card front.

The art began with a Whisper White panel, and I used the large floral “stitching” die to cut into each corner.  This die is cool – it creates what looks like “quilting”!

Then I matted it on Old Olive and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I used Old Olive to add some flowers from the Needle & Thread set to the panel – this is the double-ended stamp (I just used the one end!).

On a separate piece of Whisper White, I used my Stamparatus to stamp some Needle & Thread flowers in Crushed Curry and Berry Burst, then I cut them with their matching dies in the Needlepoint Elements Framelits.


I cut several leaves from Whisper White and Old Olive card stock with the Needlepoint Elements dies.  Then I used Liquid Glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals to create my collage with all my elements!

I stamped the Needle & Thread sentiment in Old Olive on Whisper White, then fussy cut each word.  They’re adhered with Liquid Glue.

I tied a simple bow with two lengths of Whisper White Medium Baker’s Twine and a length of Old Olive Linen Thread and adhered it to the card front with a Glue Dot.  The card front is finished with a few Berry Burst Glitter Enamel Dots.

On the inside, I stamped a second Needle & Thread sentiment in Old Olive on a Whisper White panel. Then I added some Berry Burst butterflies!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to an Old Olive mat and into my Berry Burst card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got some more Needle & Thread butterflies on the front…

…and I added some more Crushed Curry DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This Needle & Threads bundle is such fun to use to build floral collages – especially for folks that love needlepoint and embroidery!  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Botanical Butterfly Gala

Hello from Maryland!  Made it yesterday in decent-ish time (have to say – the traffic thru DC was ridiculous especially given that it was Saturday – I’ll never complain about Atlanta traffic again!). I was pretty whooped (I’m not as young as I was the last time I made this trip!) so only sort of unpacked the car – just enough to be able to go to bed.  Will finish that today and get my “nest” made!  Keep an eye on your FB notifications later this evening – I may hop on for a few minutes to give you a gander at my home-away-from-home for the next 5 – 6 weeks – if I can get it all together!

So my card for today is one that uses the gorgeous – and FREE during Sale-A-Bration! – Botanical Butterfly DSP and the Butterfly Gala stamp set.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! The Road Trip is Underway…Piece of Cake!

Well.  Here we are – Saturday.  THE Saturday.  If I’ve done what I set out to do, then by the time you read this, I should be on the other side of Atlanta on my way to Maryland!  We got everything packed up last night and then…it was time at the hiney-crack-of-way-too-early this morning!

I always get a rental car for these kinds of business trips…

Stampin’ Up! Happiness Bloom By Bloom Thank You

Happy Friday, y’all!  I’m in chicken-with-my-head-cut-off mode today.  At some point I have to stop making cards and start PACKING!  No matter how hard I squeeze my eyes shut and shake my head back and forth and pound my fists, tomorrow IS going to come and I WILL have to get in my car and drive down the driveway.  With or withOUT my stuff!

Since I prefer WITH – time to get on the stick, Mare! 😉

I have found that talking to myself doesn’t actually do any good.  But what the heck!

My card today is super simple!  It’s not exactly what I started out to make – that effort just didn’t work for me.  I didn’t like it – so I changed it!  But I DID stick with my Happiness Blooms DSP and the Thank You Thinlits Die, with an assist from the Bloom By Bloom stamp set and Country Floral Dynamic TIEF.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Share a Well Said Ride!

Happy Hawwmp Day, y’all!  The week is progressing – too fast for once – to the weekend.  Before I know it I’ll be headed to the airport to pick up the rental car and bringing it home to pack!  The only real question is whether my list of gotta-get-dones will be got-done by then! 😉

A little admin-y stuff first…I’ve got new info below about some die sets that are in danger of going “not orderable” due to the high demand we’ve experienced.  Take a look and if something you were wanting is on the list…hop to it!  I don’t think they’ll last long…

Okay – My card today is a super easy fun-fold that I made for a friend.  I used some Share What You Love Specialty DSP and the wonderful Let It Ride and Well Said stamp sets.  Take a look-see:
