Stampin’ Up! Sunflowers Do a World of Good 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!

When I saw our colors I knew I was going to be making a sunflower – or two! – using the new Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set and bundled Sunflowers Dies.  And I also figured the World of Good DSP would have some goodness in it, too!  The Many Mates set lent the perfect sentiment.  Take a look-see:

Can you – possibly?!? – guess our colors?? 🙂

I pulled a layout idea from this week’s Sunday Stamps challenge!

And it fits perfectly with the Global Design Project‘s Theme challenge, too. 🙂

I started with a piece of Bumble Bee paper from the wunnermus World of Good DSP pack, that I matted on Old Olive for the card front.

Using a Stitched Rectangle Die – and running it half way thru my die cutting machine then moving the die and going back thru the machine the other direction (to create a longer die cut) – I cut a rectangle of Old Olive.  Then I stamped the piece of card stock with the two leaves images from Celebrate Sunflowers in Old Olive for a tone-on-tone look.

Finally – I embossed the panel in the new Old World Paper 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

On another piece of the same Bumble Bee paper from the World of Good DSP set, I used my Stamparatus to stamp both sunflower images in Early Espresso.  I cut the large flower with the die from the Sunflowers Dies – and fussy cut the small flower.   There IS a die for the smaller flower – but I trimmed off the leaves so…fussy cutting was the way to go!

On Old Olive, I stamped two large leaves and one of the small double-leaf images in Old Olive – then cut them with their matching dies.  I also cut the corresponding detailed leaves from Old Olive.

From Early Espresso – I cut the large detailed flower and two flower centers.

Using Liquid Glue just in the middle – I adhered the detailed flower to the large die cut.  I also adhered the detailed leaves to their solid leaf die cuts.

On yet another piece of the World of Good DSP, I used my Stamparatus to stamp a Many Mates sentiment in Early Espresso.  Then I cut it out with a Stitched Rectangle Die and adhered it to the card front with Black Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I laid everything out – and started assembling!

I cut a smallish Stiched Shapes square from Brass Foil, embossed it in the Old World 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I adhered the large leaves to the card front with Liquid Glue – then added the large flower with more Liquid Glue.  I popped a flower center on this one with a Black Stampin’ Dimensional.

Using Liquid Glue – I adhered the small leaves to the back of the small flowers and the second flower center to the…center! 🤔

Then I used a Glue Dot to wind some gold trim from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack.  I added a bow tied from a piece of 1/4″ Bumble Bee Gingham Ribbon with another Glue Dot.

Finally – I added a couple of Black Stampin’ Dimensionals to the card front – and a Glue Dot to the middle of the gingham bow – and adhered the small flower.  Note: I left the covers on the dimensionals. I wanted their support – but did NOT want the flower to lay down that tightly.  Make sense?

To finish off – I got a little jiggy with the color challenge and added a Cinnamon Cider 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dot to the sentiment – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped the small flower a few times in Early Espresso on a Very Vanilla panel.  And that was it!

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

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got more Celebrate Sunflowers flowers on the front in Early Espresso…

And a little more World of Good DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This card has so many elements I love – the Celebrate Sunflowers, die cut with their matching Sunflowers Dies.  World of Good DSP – with it’s old world look.  A little Old World Paper 3D Embossing.  And a collage!  Score!  Of course, Many Mates slides in with the perfect sentiment for this custom-order card!  I hope you like – and that this is on your wish list.

Or…your Bought-it-watching-for-the-UPS-truck list! 😉

Finn Fan Fix


 

I feel like it’s been pretty well established that Finn leads a pretty rough life.

Dry dog food instead of a carefully prepared “raw” diet.

A “cage” at night.

A “shock” collar when he’s outside.

No pettings.  No nose kisses.  No treats.  No peppermints.  No lap time.  No toys whatsoever.

So…I wanted to show a quick video that really explains his lot in life.

 

Forced to lay in the bedroom, with a fan aimed right at him.

The horror.

Stampin’ Up! Forever Greenery Lovely You Sneak Peek

Good morning!  Let’s have a moment of silence for the last day of the awesome 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.

Okay.  Done?

Now – let’s get ready to RUMMMBLE!!!  TOMORROW!

Yes – you have to wait until tomorrow to RUMMMBLE!!  That’s when the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog will be available to you for ordering!

For now….speaking of new catalog goodies – I’ve got a couple on my cards to share with you today. Yep – I said cards – as in multiples! I made eight of these – four in each design, using the new Forever Greenery DSP and the Lovely You stamp set.  Plus…a little Well Written (available now – and carrying over!) Die cutting! Take a look-see:

The clean and easy design for this one is from the CAS(E) This Sketch challenge this week.

I used two different paper designs in the new Forever Greenery DSP – and Petal Pink mats on both of them.  I adhered the paper to the mats with Liquid Glue.

For the sentiment, I used a Stitched Rectangle Die and cut either a Shaded Spruce or a Pretty Peacock “mat” for the sentiment.

The sentiment itself is cut from Petal Pink with a die in the Well Written Die set – then it’s adhered to the “mat” with Liquid Glue.

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

I tied little bows from the gold twine in the new Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack and adhered them with a dab of Liquid Glue.  I love this gold twine – and I unraveled the “tails” of the bows to make them even prettier! 🙂

I added a single Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewel and the card fronts – all EIGHT of them! – were done!

On the inside, on a Very Vanilla panel, I stamped one of the gorgeous DistINKtive leaf images from Forever Fern in Pear Pizzazz.  The Lovely You stamp set provided the pretty sentiment – stamped in Pretty Peacock or Shaded Spruce.  Each panel got another Champagne Rhinestone.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Petal Pink mat and into my Shaded Spruce or Pretty Peacock card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals – and the cards were done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelopes all got Forever Fern leaves in Pear Pizzazz on the front…

…and more of the Forever Greenery DSP on the envelope flaps.

Et Voila!  Some gorgeous Forever Greenery DSP….a die cut from Well Written…and a perfect sentiment from Lovely You!  And wonderful leaf images from Forever Fern – and you’ve got the makings of tons of cards for all sorts of occasions!!

 

I put them all together and – with just a little stamping and die cutting – got 8 pretty thank you cards in short order!

I hope you like and have added these sets to your gotta-have-it-now list!

Be on the lookout for the start of some awesome ordering and joining specials starting tomorrow with the arrival of the new catalog! Whoo-hooo!

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

P.S.  Just so you know what to expect tomorrow, 3 June – as we transition the Stampin’ Up! ordering system to the new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog….Stampin’ Up! reminded us that ordering will be unavailable from midnight to noon (MT) while we transition our systems to the new catalog. Ordering will be restored no later than noon (MT).

The GOOD news is that you don’t have to get up at the crack of dawn to start ordering your faves!  The bad news is that you may be awake then anyway – out of sheer excitement! – and you won’t be able to start ordering your faves! 😉

P.P.S.  The the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog and 2020 Jan – Jun Mini Catalog retiring products will be gone TONIGHT!  Don’t miss out!

These are hard days – scary and confusing.

The world is in chaos, it seems.  We’ve got good happening –

that is overshadowed by the bad…

Is there a solution to…any of it?

I don’t know.

But…Finn might find the answer.  He…spends a lot of time thinking…

Solemn demeanor.  Crossed hands.

A sure sign that many of the world’s biggest problems are being contemplated.

I hope he comes up with some answers.

Stampin’ Up! Birds & Branches Sneak Peek

Good morning!  It’s Monday and, more importantly!, it’s the day before the day before the new catalog goes live!  New Catalog Eve Eve??  Are you so excited?  I know I am – I made my gotta-have-it-RIGHT-NOW list yesterday.  It’s…well.  Looooonnnngggg!  I can tell you, if I wasn’t already a demonstrator, I’d be cashing in on the Bundle Bash Joining Special and getting that 20% discount, for sure!!

Was that a broad enough hint?!  ROFL!!

Anywho…you MIGHT – when you decide to take advantage of the awesome special, pick Birds & Branches as your FREE BUNDLE!  I made my card with it – and some of the new In Colors – for you to take a peek!  It’s not quite a fun-fold, but…it’s just a smidge different than normal.  Take a look-see:

It’s ALSO kinda hard to photograph.  Let’s try this…. the front is shorter than the back – can you see it here?

The layout was inspired by the sketch side of this week’s FUSION Challenge.

And, since I love a Tic-Tac-Toe challenge, I played along there, too!  I went right across the middle row!

I started with a regular Just Jade card base, and trimmed off the bottom 1 1/8″ of the front.

I cut a second piece of Just Jade, the same size as the front of the card base, and embossed it in the new Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder, then adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

Next, I used the pretty circle die in the Birds & More Dies set (bundled with the Birds & Branches stamp set), and cut it from the middle of a piece of Bumble Bee paper from the 2020-2022 In Color 6″ x 6″ DSP.

I cut a piece of Cinnamon Cider cardstock and cut the bottom with the edge die in the Birds & More die set.

I cut another piece of Just Jade and embossed it in the Tasteful Textile 3D folder and adhered it to the Cinnamon Cider mat with Liquid Glue.  Then I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop the Bumble Bee piece over top.

I wrapped a length of Cinnamon Cider 1/4″ Ribbon around the panel, securing it in back with Glue Dots.  Then I popped the whole thing onto the shortened card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the little bird from Birds & Branches in Misty Moonlight on Very Vanilla, then colored him with my Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends combo and cut him with the matching die in the Birds & More Die set.

I created my collage with a couple of wood leaves from the new In Good Taste Elements adhered with Glue Dots, the die cut bird, a double-loop Linen Thread bow, and a Misty Moonlight 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dot.  And that was it for the card front!

On the inside, I stamped two sentiments from the Itty Bitty Birthday stamp set (in the current catalog and carrying over – yeah!!) in Misty Moonlight on a Very Vanilla panel – making sure the bottom sentiment was visible with the card closed.

Slightly over the top sentiment, in stamped-off-once Misty Moonlight, I added my little bird.  Then I used the fill-in stamp over top, in stamped-off-once Crumb Cake.  I also used stamped-off-once Crumb Cake to add little bird-feet and a branch!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Cinnamon Cider mat and into my Just Jade card base, and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got a repeat of the bird image – but in full-strength ink – on the front…

…and more of the Bumble Bee 2020-2022 In Color 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Oh.  My.  Goodness!  How sweet are the little birds – with their teeny tiny bird-feet!! – in this Birds & Branches stamp set??!  And the nest – and eggs!!  Add in the gorgeous circle and edge dies in the bundled Birds & More Dies set and…we have a winner, y’all!

 

I hope you like and have added this one to YOUR long gotta-have-it-right-now list! 😉

Stampin’ Up! Many Layered 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 TicTacToe challenge (one of my favorites!) from our own 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 yesterday for my Facebook Live video, I appreciate you spending some of your weekend with me!  If you weren’t able to watch the live version, but you’d like to see the replay on YouTube…here ’tis!

I turned to the beautiful Many Layered Blossoms bundle – stamp set AND dies – for this one.  And set the blooms atop a Christmas Layers bough and an Ornate Floral 3D embossed panel!  Take a look-see:

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

I went across the top – down the right column – and across the diagonal left to right.  I’m pretty sure that’s YAHTZEE! 😉

And the layout was (sort of loosely!) inspired by the Freshly Made Sketches challenge this week!

I started by cutting the bough from the Christmas Layers die set from a piece of Just Jade card stock, which would form the basis for the flower spray on the card front.

Using the small flower dies in the Many Layered Blossoms die set, I cut three small and two large flowers from Silver Foil.  Then I adhered them to a piece of the Magenta Madness paper in the 2020-2022 In Color 6″ x 6″ DSP.  I roughly fussy cut the flowers.

I cut the outline flowers from Misty Moonlight and used Liquid Glue to adhere them (only using glue in the middles of the flowers) to the flowers I’d just created.

I laid out the bough and the flowers on a piece of Whisper White cardstock.  Once I knew where it would all “land”, I stamped the Blossoms in Bloom sentiment in Misty Moonlight.  Then I embossed the panel in the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder.

I adhered the panel to a Magenta Madness mat and then adhered the Just Jade bough across the panel with Liquid Glue.

Using Stampin’ Dimensionals – I added the five flowers.  Under the fourth flower – I used a Glue Dot to adhere a simple bow tied from a length of Misty Moonlight/Silver Baker’s Twine from the new Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack.

I added a Bumble Bee enamel dot from the 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dots to the center of each flower and the card front was done.

On the inside, I stamped the two small flowers from Blossoms in Bloom in Misty Moonlight on a Whisper White panel.  I stamped little flower centers in Melon Mambo (I don’t have Magenta Madness Ink yet – but it’s a good way to show the difference in the two colors!).  I added a Just Jade enamel dot to each flower.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Magenta Madness mat and into my Misty Moonlight card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Misty Moonlight and Melon Mambo flowers on the front…

…and more of the Magenta Madness 2020-2022 In Color 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  No way around it, is there?  This bundle – whether you use the Blossoms in Bloom stamp set with the Many Layered Blooms Dies together or just one of the other – is a stunner!!  The stamp set – in addition to the beautiful blossoms – covers a lot of ground in the sentiment department!!

I’m also a huge fan of the new designs in the 2020-2022 In Color 6″ x 6″ DSP, aren’t you?  When the new catalog comes out next week (whoo-hoo!!), each color collection will have a new pack of DSP with these designs!

Yep – that’s WOODGRAIN!! 🙂

I hope you like – and are adding all these goodies to your gotta-have-it list!

And I can help you get this bundle – after 3 June you might pick this for your FREE BUNDLE when you join the Stampin’ Up! team during our Kickoff Celebration (see the deets down below), or you might consider my Online Host Club! or you could get it in my All About the Flowers Special Bundle!

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

Finn Fan Fix


The other day, Finn had gone outside for…you know.

Business. 😉

He started barking (not at all unusual) and I looked out the kitchen window to see what it was….the last time he did that we had a visitor.

I couldn’t see anything but he was definitely letting me know SOMEthing was up…

He’d barkbarkbark and then…look to see what, if any, effect he was having…

Finally, I guess he decided it just wasn’t worth the effort and he laid down to rest…

Turns out…which I discovered when I went to feed…I’d left the back pasture gate open that morning.

The girls had been taking a turn thru the barn – checking the sawdust barrels, perusing the hay room, and finally finding the clover patch behind the barn.

So…there WAS something to bark at.

THIS time!

Ever heard of the Aussie who cried wolf?!?

Finn Fan Fix


Heads up – this is long FFF and not really very Finn-centric.  🙂

Okay – by a show of hands…how many of you love going to the dentist?

That was easy to count.

How many of you hate it??

WAAAAY more! 😉

Well – Friday was dentistry day for the Deatherage girls.

Warning – the following pictures – and a video! – will for sure make you realize that going to the people dentist is NOTHING!

We started with our guard dog heralding the arrival of the vet – he heard him coming long before we could see him!

Once we decided that they needed floating (that’s what it’s called when the vet files the sharp points off horse teeth) – our good vet Dr. Jason McClendon from Southern Crescent Equine Services began to set up.

At this point, the girls were munching hay.  Which is good – cuz…it looks like a torturer’s lair! 😳😳😳

On a brighter note – they were both tranquilized for the “procedure” so…I promise it looks way worse for them than it actually was.

First – a mouth rinse to get rid of the grass and hay tucked here and there…

They use a padded head sling to get the head in position – easier on everyone – including Cerah!  See that floppy lip?  She’s pretty out of it at this point.  They use the goooood stuff!!

And then…out come the power tools!

No – really.  Power tools.

Horse teeth are HARD – vets used to use a hand file – and the amount of effort – in a cramped space with a protesting horse (I’d protest, too!) was horrendous.  This makes it much more doable!

Which is NOT to say that it’s easy work!

So – here’s a video – it’s loud.  But…it shows the process – and you can hear (and then see!) Cady – who is quite concerned for her mom…

What was Finn doing?

When it came time for Cady – she did fine. Her mom was a little too…out of it in her stall to care.  And she probably thought it was fair that her kid had to go to the dentist, too!

Once it was all over….Finn came to “help” Cady stagger back to her bedroom.  She’s a bit….tipsy!

When it was over – the REAL pain started!  NO FOOD OR WATER FOR TWO WHOLE HOURS!!

The horror!  The unfairness of it all. 🙂

They were okay for a bit – sleeping it off…

But then they woke up enough to realize they were being starved to DEATH!

Fortunately – the rest of their “bed rest” went quickly and they got to back to the pasture to make up for lost time.

They came up for dinner in fine fettle – fully recovered – and with smooth and ready-to-chew choppers! 🙂

See?  None the worse for wear!

I hope you’ve enjoyed this inside look at the glamorous life of ponies and their parents! 😉

Stampin’ Up! A Grand Kid Jar of Flowers Sneak Peek Fun Fold – with a Video Tutorial!

Happy Friday!!  I hope you’ve had an awesome week.  Are you planning to watch the second attempt to launch Space X to the ISS on Saturday – at 1522 Eastern??  I am – and am hoping the weather God’s are more cooperative than they were on Wednesday.  We need to get ourselves back into space!  Also?  The Space X suits and cockpit are super cool and future-istic looking!  Should be exciting!!

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

I used two new-in-the-2020-2021-Annual-Catalog stamp sets for this fun-fold…the A Grand Kid and the Jar of Flowers sets.  Along with some Flowers for Every Season DSP, I ended up with this side-flap tri-fold card.  Take a look-see:

The layout for the front of the card hails from this week’s Tuesday Morning Sketches challenge…

And the flowers and colors work perfectly with the Hand Stamped Sentiments Inspiration challenge!

This fun-fold came to my attention on this week’s SplitCoastStampers Wednesday Tutorial, so I thought I’d give it a go!

I started with a full 8 1/2″ x 11″ piece of Just Jade card stock and scored it with my Paper Trimmer.  Basically – I scored at the half-way mark on both the short and the long sides.  Then I cut out one quadrant of the card stock.

I cut the additional 1/2″ off the third quadrant – and the fun-fold was ready to go!  Easy peasy!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere a striped piece of the new Flowers For Every Season DSP to a Purple Posy mat.

Using Glue Dots to adhere the trim in the back, I wrapped some new gold trim from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo pack three times.

I stamped the pretty floral image from the Jar of Flowers set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and cut it with the largest oval Stitched Shapes Die.  Then I colored it with my Stampin’ Blends in:  Poppy Parade, Daffodil Delight and Flirty Flamingo Combo Packs, Dark Balmy Blue, Dark Purple Posy and Dark Mint Macaron.  Then I popped the oval onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals

I stamped a sentiment from A Grand Kid in Poppy Parade on Whsiper White and cut it with the next-to-smallest rectangle die in the Stitched So Sweetly Die set, then adhered it with Liquid Glue.

I tied a double-length of the gold Forever Greenery trim in a simple bow and adhered it with a Glue Dot.

Finally, I added some Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels and the card front was done.

On the inside flap, I matted another Flowers For Every Season paper on a Purple Posy mat and then onto the flap with Liquid Glue.  A second sentiment from A Grand Kid, in Poppy Parade on Whisper White – cut with the largest label in Stitched So Sweetly – was all the flap needed!

For the inner liner, I stamped Happy Birthday – from A Grand Kid – in Poppy Parade on Whisper White.  I added a Purple Posy-matted piece of the Flowers for Every Season DSP with Liquid Glue.

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another fun sentiment from A Grand Kid in Poppy Parade on the front.  I used my Melon Mambo, Flirty Flamingo and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Write Markers to color the letters…

…and more of the Flowers for Every Season DSP on the envelope flap!

Et Voila!  There’s so much to love about the florals from the Jar of Flowers set – and that’s even WITHOUT using the bundled Jar Punch!  It just makes a project sing….SPRING (or SUMMER!!).  And the A Grand Kid set – a sentiment stamp set – is perfect for Grandparents, but… many of the sentiments are great for non-grands!

And if you want some paper that spans the seasons – look no further than the aptly-named Flowers for Every Season DSP! Poinsettias and pines, sunflowers, daisies, roses….it’s all here!

I hope you like…no…LOVE!  And are making plans to add all of this to your stash at the earliest opportunity!

You can get the whole Jar of Flowers bundle – plus several other great flower-centric products – in my All About the Flowers Special Bundle #3!  Check it out right here!

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

Finn Fan Fix


There are many reasons that Finn has a love-hate relationship with summer.

He sort of loves the reaction from the mom and dad when he flies around the corner of the house sopping wet when he’s taken a dip in the pond.

And he LOVES being toweled off as a result of said dip.

But.

There’s a dark side to summer.

That moment when you realize that the garage door is going up and your dad is going for a drive.

Without you. 🙁

Cuz – the mom is a 3S – that’s a Super Strict Stickler – about hot cars and dogs.  And her window of “okay for Finn to go” is pretty narrow.

Just in case that photo didn’t tear at your heart….

Resist this.  I dare you.

Ahhh – the betrayal of summer….

Stampin’ Up! Blossoms in Bloom Sneak Peek 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!

When I saw the colors for this week – I saw flowers.  I know.  Shocker.  Mary used flowers! 😳😳😳  I pulled out the wunnermus Blossoms in Bloom stamp set and my Stamparatus and got after it!  Take a look-see:

Yeah, I see it – I’m kind of on a roll with the stamp-an-image-cut-part-of-it-out-and-pop-it-back-in thing this week.  😉

And here’s our color challenge!

The layout for this one is from this week’s Global Design Project sketch challenge.

I started with a panel of Whisper White that I placed in my Stamparatus.  Then, I used the Stamparatus to stamp the big, bold blossoms from Blossoms in Bloom in Mango Melody.

I pulled the cardstock out of the Stamparatus and added some smaller flowers around the main image in stamped-off-once So Saffron.  I also added some stamped-off-once Old Olive leaves here and there.

I added flower centers in So Saffron and some in Mango Melody.

Then, I used the larger label die in the Stitched So Sweetly die set to cut the center out of the panel.

Using Liquid Glue, I adhered the panel to a Mango Melody mat – and then to an Old Olive mat.  I popped the die cut back in place with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere a length of Old Olive ribbon from the Ornate Floral Ribbon Combo Pack.

The sentiment, from Blossoms in Bloom, is stamped in Old Olive on Whisper White and cut with the narrowest Stitched Rectangle Die.  Then I popped it on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I used my Fine-Tip Glue Pen to add some clear gems from the new Flowers For Every Season Gems pack – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped a whole cottage garden’s worth of flowers onto a Whisper White panel using the small flowers in the stamp set.   Then, cuz I like it so much, I pulled out Many Mates and added that sweet sentiment in Old Olive.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Mango Melody and Old Olive 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 Blossoms in Bloom flowers and leaves on the front…

…and on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  How gorgeous are these Blossoms in Bloom flowers?  I love the different “gardens” that we can make with one stamp set!  And – although I didn’t use it on this card – the bundled Many Layered Blossoms Die set is a showstopper!!

I hope you like….and have added this to your list.  OR…maybe THIS will be the bundle you pick as your FREE BUNDLE when you join between 3 Jun and 30 Jun!? 😉

If you’d like to recreate this card, all the products and card cuts are listed below!

Stampin’ Up! Tasteful Touches Sneak Peek You Are The Best

Happy Happy Hawwwmp Day!  And – we’re EXACTLY one week away from the new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog debut!  Whoo-hoo!!  I know you can hardly wait to get your mitts on some of the new goodies!  Don’t miss out on the great goodies that are Retiring and leaving us, though – they’ll be gone on 2 June!

And…DO be sure to scroll all the way down the post today to check out the AMAZEBALLS Joining Special that Stampin’ Up! just revealed!  It starts on the 3rd – and…includes a FREE BUNDLE!  Yes – ANY bundle in the new catalog for FREE.  On top of the already-great-Starter Kit deal-y-o!

My card today uses one of those new bundles – maybe it’s one you’ll pick for YOUR Starter Kit? 😉  It’s the Tasteful Touches stamp set and bundled Tastelful Labels Dies.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one was inspired by the sketch at CAS Colours & Sketches.

I started with a panel of Sahara Sand card stock.  Down near the bottom, in Sahara Sand ink, I stamped the filigree image from Tasteful Touches.  Next to it, I stamped the leaves image – also in Sahara Sand.

I used the large circle die in the Tasteful Labels die set to cut the card front.  I left the die cut in place, and embossed the whole panel in the new Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder.

Using the leaves stamp again, I stamped all over the panel using stamped-off-once Sahara Sand ink.  The stamp hits just the tops of the embossing and barely colors it – giving a wonderful textural quality to the card front! 🙂

Then I matted the panel on a Petal Pink mat with Liquid Glue.  I popped the cut-out circle back in place with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On another piece of Sahara Sand, I stamped the leaves again in Sahara Sand.  Then I cut the image out with another label die from Tasteful Labels.  I embossed the little label in the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to the card front – lining up the two images – with Dimensionals and some Liquid Glue.

I stamped the beautiful Tasteful Touches flower on Very Vanilla in Sahara Sand ink and colored it with my Light Petal Pink and Dark So Saffron Stampin’ Blends.  Then I fussy cut the flower – and edged it with my Sahara Sand Stampin’ Write Marker.

Using a couple of Glue Dots – I wound a length of 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim into a loose “bow”.

Then I popped the flower over top with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The sentiment, from Tasteful Touches, I stamped in Petal Pink on Very Vanilla and then fussy cut each word.  I edged each little piece with the Sahara Sand Stampin’ Write Marker.  Then I adhered each word with Liquid Glue.

I added some Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a second Tasteful Touches sentiment in Petal Pink to a Very Vanilla panel.  I stamped the flower and leaves in Sahara Sand and colored the flower with the Light Petal Pink and Dark So Saffron Blends.  A single Champagne Rhinestone finished it off.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Petal Pink mat and into my Sahara Sand card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got more flowers and leaves on the front…

…and on the envelope flap!

Et Voila!  Love love love this Tasteful Touches bundle – the stamp set is stunning with it’s flower and textural elements – plus the gorgeous sentiments.  The bundled Tasteful Labels die set is…truly going to be a workhorse for you!

 

I hope you like – and have already added this one to your “must have” list for next week!

Or…maybe it IS the bundle you’ll pick for FREE with your Starter Kit!! 😉

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

Finn Fan Fix


You know – if I search thru my phone for all the pictures I’ve taken since he came to live with us, of my Finny-win sleeping, I bet I’d find about a gazillion.

But…I can’t help it very much.

He goes to great lengths to sleep so stinkin’ cutely.

Case in point.

Seriously – how could I NOT take this picture??

Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern Sneak Peek Hello!

Good morning!  In “normal” times (different from the “new-normal” times we’re in right now), I’d say – whoo-hoo for a short week!  I suppose that it’s still true – even if you’re working from home – you DO only have to do it for four days and then there’s another weekend!  Which means you only have to put your “work jammies” on for three more days.  I’m assuming you’re already “dressed” for the day! 😉

My card today is all about the new Forever Greenery suite – with its Forever Fern stamp set bundled with the Forever Flourishing die set and the Forever Greenery DSP – in the 2020-2022 Annual Catalog.  It’s one of my favorites (which, to be fair) is a pretty long list.  I have a LOT of faves in this catalog!  For this one, I added a few pieces of the beautiful Forever Gold Laser-Cut Specialty Paper.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one was inspired by the sketch side of this week’s FUSION challenge.

I started by stamping one of the pretty leaf images from the Forever Fern stamp set in Shaded Spruce on a piece of Soft Sea Foam cardstock.  I also stamped the little splatter image in Soft Sea Foam all about, here and there!

Then I embossed the panel in one of the new Greenery Embossing Folders – the one with the leaves on top and bottom…being a Mini folder – it left about 1″ of non-embossed cardstock on the left side of the panel.

Which worked perfectly for my design!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere a strip of Forever Greenery DSP on the left side of the panel and to adhere the panel to its Shaded Spruce mat.  Then I covered the seam with a length of Just Jade 1/4″ In Color Ribbon, securing it in the back with Glue Dots.

I cut a Shaded Spruce leaf die cut with one of the gorgeous dies in the Forever Flourishing Die set, then I used Liquid Glue to adhere it, and a couple of laser-cut leaves from the Gold Forever Laser-Cut Specialty Paper.

On another piece of Soft Sea Foam, I stamped a Forever Fern sentiment in Shaded Spruce.  Around it, I added those splatters again in Soft Sea Foam.  Then I cut it out with the larger circle die cut in the new Tasteful Labels set (also coming on 3 Jun in the new catalog).

I tied a quick double loop bow from the wonderful gold twine in the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack and adhered it with a Glue Dot.  Then I adhered the sentiment over top with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added some Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels here and there and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped the big leaves image in Shaded Spruce on a Soft Sea Foam panel.  Next to it, I added a smaller image in stamped-off-once Shaded Spruce.  Then I added some more Soft Sea Foam splatters and Champagne Rhinestones.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Shaded Spruce mat and into my Petal Pink card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Forever Fern leaves in Shaded Spruce on the front…

…and more of the Forever Greenery DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I love love love this Forever Fern stamp set and it’s wonderful bundled Flourishing Forever Die Set!!

And the Forever Greenery DSP is spectacular!

I hope you like – and are counting down the days till you can get it all for yourself!  And – FYI – you can get this bundle, along with even MORE gorgeous stamp sets and bundles in my Just Cuz They’re Beautiful Special Bundle!

Finn Fan Fix


On most mornings, I leave Finn on a “stay” in the barn while I lead the ladies around to let them out in the pasture.

Some days, I feel like maybe I’m being watched

Since I know for SURE it couldn’t be Finn watching me – cuz of how he’s in the barn where I left him…I know it’s just paranoia….

Or…is it?

THAT does not look like a “stay”….

Watcha gonna do when he comes for you…for you….
