Stampin’ Up! Flower & Field Ornate Thanks for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good morning, y’all!  It’s Thursday – which means it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!!  We’ve got a sketch challenge today and I’m excited to see what everyone brings to the table!  I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop today!

The sketch made me want to use a pretty designer series paper – there was lots of space to let it shine – so…I pulled out one which is 1) gorgeous and 2) FREE!  It’s the Flower & Field DSP – which is one of the $50-level Sale-A-Bration offerings, so it’s free with a qualifying purchase!  Then I added a simple sentiment from Ornate Thanks and a pretty little Daisy Lane daisy on the inside.  Take a look-see:

…and here’s our sketch!

I started with a piece of the Flower & Field DSP that I matted on Bumble Bee for the card front.  Then I cut a Stitched So Sweetly rectangle from a SECOND pattern in the paper and adhered that to the card front with Liquid Glue.

Next, on a strip of Whisper White (or you can for sure use Basic White!), I stamped the Ornate Thanks sentiment in Granny Apple Green.

Using the Label Me Fancy Punch – I punched a slot in either end of the strip.

I took two lengths of Bumble Bee 2020-2022 In Color 1/4″ Ribbon and threaded them thru the slots.  Using Liquid Glue – I adhered them together – crossing them – on the back of the sentiment strip.  Then I popped the sentiment on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and secured the ends of the ribbon to the back of the card front with Glue Dots.

I added single small Pool Party Holiday Rhinestone Jewel and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped the sweet daisy from Daisy Lane in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a Whisper White (or Basic White) panel.  I colored the center with my Bumble Bee Stampin’ Write Marker and the bases of the petals with my Light Pool Party Stampin’ Blend.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Bumble Bee mat and into my Basic Black card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White (say it with me…or Basic White!) Medium Envelope got the Daisy Lane flower on the front…

…and more of the Flower & Field DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Quick and easy – but…I love it!  This Flower & Field paper – on top of being FREE! – is really gorgeous!  And you can pick it when your order reaches $50 (before shipping and tax) during Sale-A-Bration!

Ornate Thanks and Daisy Lane – both from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog – are great choices to add a sentiment and a complementary daisy! 🙂

I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Fine Art Floral Gallery Sneak Peek Fun-Fold with Video Tutorial

Happy 2021!!  I suspect most of us are hoping and praying that this is a better year – on so many levels! – than 2020 was.  I know – and you know – that it’s not going to change for the better overnight.  But…perhaps the light we’re seeing at the end of the tunnel is NOT a train.  Hope springs eternal. 🙂

My first card for the year comes with a video tutorial and, if you were able to join me yesterday on my You Tube channel, I appreciate you spending part of your New Year’s Eve with me!  If not, here’s the replay!  Hint: don’t be confused by the picture – I DID make a different card on the video.  But…it means you get a two-fer today! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Touch of Ink Heal Your Heart Sneak Peek Sympathy Card with Video Tutorial

Good morning and happy Friday!  Another busy week has flown by – I DID finally start baking – yeah me! – so…SOME gifts will go out soon.  I fear I’m going to have to GO TO A STORE – cuz….boy have I messed up the whole buy online thing!  I’m still waiting for an order to arrive that was slated to come last Monday, so….  🙄

If you were able to join me yesterday for my YouTube live, I appreciate you spending some time with me – if not, but you’d like to see the replay, here ’tis!  🙂

There seems to be a spike in the need for sympathy cards right now, so…that’s what I did with this one.  I started with a sentiment from the Peaceful Moments stamp set (from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog) and brought in some new goodies.  The Heal Your Heart and A Touch of Ink stamp sets – available on 5 Jan 2021! Take a look-see:

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

And – I played along with the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.

I started with a piece of the Hydrangea Hill DSP – the striped Highland Heather design – and stamped all over it with the flower image in the A Touch of Ink stamp set. I stamped the flowers in stamped-off-once Highland Heather to get a more subtle tone-on-tone look.

Then I matted the panel on Seaside Spray for the card front.

I cut another piece of the Hydrangea Hill DSP and a piece of Whisper White to 2″ x 4 3/8″.  I punched the tops of both strips with the Delightful Tag Topper Punch – and rounded the bottom corners with the corner-rounder on the Detailed Trio Punch.

I created the “mat” look by cutting the Whisper White tag in half length-wise and then adhering each side to the back of the DSP strip with Liquid Glue – leaving a little white border.

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

I trimmed a Square Vellum Doily down a bit with my Paper Snips and adhered it to the tag with Liquid Glue.

On a piece of Whisper White, I stamped the sentiment from Peaceful Moments in Gorgeous Grape ink and cut it out with a Tasteful Labels die.  Then I adhered it to the tag with Liquid Glue.

On another piece of Whisper White, I stamped the hummingbird outline from A Touch of Ink in Seaside Spray ink.  To color him, I inked the fill stamp in Seaside Spray – stamped it off once on scrap paper – and stamped it over the image.  Then I fussy cut the little bird.

I used Stampin’ Dimensionals and Liquid Glue to adhere him – then I brushed him all over with my Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush.

I tied a bow with some new Gorgeous Grape 3/8″ Sheer Ribbon (available 5 Jan 21) and added it at the top of the tag with a Glue Dot.

A Seaside Spray pearl from the new Pastel Pearls (coming on 5 Jan 2021) on the sentiment tag finished off the card front.

On the inside, I stamped a sentiment – one of my favorites! – from the Heal Your Heart set in Gorgeous Grape on a Whisper White panel.  Over that, in stamped-off-TWICE Highland Heather – I stamped the A Touch of Ink flower that I’d used on the front of the card.

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got the A Touch of Ink flower on the front in full strength Highland Heather ink….

…and more of the Hydrangea Hill DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Love that both the A Touch of Ink AND Heal Your Heart stamp sets will be available for FREE in the 2021 Sale-A-Bration Flyer!  They’re both wonderful!

And the Hydrangea Hill DSP is just….stunning!

I hope you like.  And have got ALL these new goodies on your gotta-have-it list for 5 Jan!!

WHISPER WHITE CARDSTOCK IS RETIRING!

SHIMMERY WHITE 8-1/2" X 11" CARDSTOCK

Stampin’ Up! posted this update late in the day on Thursday. 

Whisper White has been a Stampin’ Up! staple for so long. We love it and we know you love it, too. We are sad to announce that the supplier’s mill producing our Whisper White cardstock has permanently closed due to impacts from the COVID-19 pandemic. Unfortunately, we weren’t given much notice on this closure. This means that the technology unique to this particular supplier is now unavailable to us and we can no longer offer our Whisper White cardstock and related products, such as Whisper White Note Cards & Envelopes.  Please note that this won’t affect any of our other cardstocks, this only affects Whisper White.

We know Whisper White has a huge fan base; we’re big fans, too! And we are crushed that it’s going away. Even though this decision was out of our hands, rest assured that we jumped right into action to find the best replacement paper possible. We have dedicated many hours to source and test alternative cardstock options from several suppliers to find the perfect fit that still maintains the Stampin’ Up! quality you know and trust. We are happy to share that we have found a winner for our new cardstock, Basic White!

The quality of our new Basic White was thoroughly tested by our quality assurance and product teams. It also tested very well with demonstrators and concept artists who gave it a huge thumbs up. We believe in the quality of the new Basic White cardstock and we know it will become your new crafting staple!

What does this mean for you?

With Whisper White going out of production, this means a number of Whisper White products will be affected.  Below is a list of all products that will be replaced with our new Basic White cardstock. These items are now available while supplies last with an order limit of 2 per item per order.

Our new Basic White products will become available to purchase as soon as we have them in stock. This means that some Whisper White and Basic White products may be available at the same time. Additionally, due to the nature of sourcing, some Basic White products may not be available before the Whisper White products sell out. Please know that we are working on getting these products available to you as fast as possible.

We also have a video message addressing some potential concerns that you may have. This video goes over a comparison of Whisper White to Basic White so you will know what to expect with this change. You can watch the video here.

It’s always hard to say goodbye, but we are excited about the new Basic White product line and we encourage you to try it out! We are confident that you’ll love it just as much as we do.

I’ve got an Online Host Club starting on 1 January (just in time for the new catalog and Sale-A-Bration!) and I’ve got openings.  Whoo-hoo!!!

What is an Online Host Club?  Glad you asked!An Online Host Club lets you get some of the benefits of being a host – without doing any of the WORK of being a host!  And – it helps you build your crafting tool chest a little at a time.  While earning FREE goodies!

A club consists of three folks doing two consecutive three-month terms.   Each person commits to buying $50 before shipping and tax each month.

Here’s how it shakes out…this is just an example!  As you can see, each member gets to host TWICE during the six months!!

At the end of the club, I let each member select a stamp set up to $25 that I send to them for free.

What are the other bennies of a Host Club?

  • At least a $150.00 Workshop order during EACH of your host months!
  • Which means you’ll have at least $15.00 of Stampin’ Rewards dollars to spend on the exclusive Host Stamp Sets, or any other current Stampin’ Up! product during your host months.  Stampin’ Rewards are Stampin’ Up!-speak for “free money”!
  • You’ll earn DOUBLE PEPPERMINTS on your Host Club Orders.  Each $50 order earns 4 reward points, a $75 order earns you 6 reward points, etc. You’ll earn at least 24 reward points during your membership, meaning you’ll automatically earn at least ONE $40 Peppermint rewards gift!  (Remember – when you gather up 16 Peppermints, you get to select a free reward gift valued up to $40!).  You can get more info about my Punkin’ Heads Customer Rewards Program right here.
  • During Sale-a-Bration – each of your host club orders will earn you AT LEAST one Level 1 ($50 level) Sale-A-Bration reward!
  • You’ll receive a FREE monthly tutorial with 4-5 projects and access to all previous tutorials for the duration of the club. Right now, there are over FIFTY tutorials available only to Online Host Club members.  That’s around TWO HUNDRED FIFTY not-seen-on-our-blogs projects for you to use as inspiration (and they ALL have all the card cuts and instructions!)
  • Access to my Weekly Zoom The Craftroom online Zoom Party – where you can come craft and chat with me and other customers! YEP – THIS IS NEW!!
  • FREE catalogs during your membership term
  • FREE shipping in your TWO Host Months
  • A FREE STAMP SET of your choice valued up to $25 at the end of each “term”, any current set (excluding host sets)!
  • At the end of the full 6 months, you’ll get first dibs at signing up for the next 6 month term!

When you join the club – you’ll commit to the full six months – in two consecutive three-month increments.   The launch of a new catalog and Sale-A-Bration is ALWAYS a great time to join a club!

Don’t delay – there are limited spaces available!

If you want to join us or if you have ANY questions about how it would work…please drop me a note at stamps-n-lingers@comcast.net!

Finn Fan Fix 

So – the other day, I pulled some homemade Sourdough Pancakes out of the freezer and re-heated them in the toaster oven for Wayne.  I made about one-too-many but I figured if he didn’t finish them – I could have a bite or two of pancake.  With a little warm real maple syrup.

Seemed like a fine plan.

He sat down to eat and I worked on my morning blog posting routine.

Soon, as expected, he started to say he had too much food.

I musta been a little slow on the uptake – cuz before I could say….”I’ll eat them”…..

🙁

Took about 30 seconds.

Gone.

Homemade.  Sourdough.  Pancake.

WITH WARM MAPLE SYRUP.

Just…gone.

So – last week I made a cool Christmas card with the Poinsettia Dies and some Poinsettia Place DSP.  I thought it would be fun to make a coordinating project that I could use as we head into gift-giving season!  So…out came the Poinsettia Petals Bundle, the Beautiful Boughs Dies and more of the pinecone-strewn Poinsettia Place DSP.  Then, to hold my gift…a Mini Paper Pumpkin Box (my favorite little gift box from Stampin’ Up! ever!!).  Take a look-see:

And here’s our oh-so-timely theme challenge! 🙂

I figured this one was – once again! – perfect for the TGIF challenge this week!

I started with a Mini Paper Pumpkin Box – these are so cool!  I love that they’re food-safe on the inside – perfect! – and they’re a super size for gifting homemade goodies!  Once you decorate them – they’d be the bomb-diggity as stocking stuffers, too!

I used the Bronze Brushed Metallic cardstock and matted four strips of Poinsettia Place DSP and the large piece for the top of the box using Liquid Glue.  Then I adhered the four strips around the edge of the box.

On the top, I used Glue Dots to adhere two lengths of 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim longways and crossways – like ribbon around a present.  Then I popped the panel onto the top of the box with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I pulled out the Poinsettia Dies and got busy.  First, I cut a flower from the Poinsettia Place DSP.  I also took a minute to fussy cut some of the smaller middle petals from another flower.

I also cut some Bronze Brushed Metallic cardstock berries.

Using the Beautiful Boughs dies, I cut a large Mossy Meadow bough, a medium Old Olive bough, a large and small solid pinecone from the Bronze Brushed Metallic cardstock and the large and small detailed pinecones from Crumb Cake.

Yes, ya’ll – with no “it needs to fit in a Medium Envelope” requirements to hold me back – I shucked the reins and let my collage-freak flag fly! 😉

I adhered a couple of the metallic berries to the box top with Liquid Glue – sliding them under the twine.  Then I adhered the large Mossy Meadow die cut.

I tied a big loopy bow with two lengths of 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim and adhered it with a Glue Dot.

I adhered the pine cone pieces together and added them – along with the Old Olive die cut bough and final berry die.

On a couple of strips of Very Vanilla cardstock, I individually stamped the two words in the Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Early Espresso.  I snipped banner ends in both pieces and – sliding them into the collage – adhered them with Liquid Glue.

Using some stacked Stampin’ Dimensionals, I added the large die cut poinsettia flower.  Then I used more Dimensionals to pop the fussy cut smaller petals onto the flower.

And – y’all?  That’s it!  AKA….Et Voila!

My collage-loving soul is SOOOO happy with this!  And – check out how it looks with that card from last week!

Just enough differences to not be all matchy-matchy!  If you’d like to see how I made that one, it’s right here!

I think that the Poinsettia Petals Bundle and Poinsettia Place DSP makes it abundantly obvious that Poinsettias and Pines go together like peanut butter and jelly!  Or…the Captain and Tennille! 😉 Thankfully, we’ve ALSO got the Beautiful Boughs dies to make our theme complete!

I hope you LOVE this as much as I do!

Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Pines and For Unto Us CAS Christmas Cards

Good morning, all – and Happy Happy HAWWWMP Day!  The week is flying by, isn’t it?  I had to look at my watch when I started this post last night to see what day it was.  I was shocked to realize it was already Tuesday.  Yikes!

I’ve been getting some queries about ideas for easy to make Christmas cards – that are suitable for making multiples!  I made one a couple weeks back using the Curvy Christmas stamp set – you can see it here.  But – it got me to thinking, so I decided to do a riff on that one – with one of my favorite stamp sets – the Peaceful Boughs set.  I added a sentiment for the inside from For Unto Us and went back to the gorgeous Gold Cards & Envelopes, just like the first card.  Take a look-see:
