2020 Aug – Dec Mini Catalog Sneak Peek

Stampin’ Up! Festive Corners Sneak Peek Halloween Card

Good morning, my peeps!  Hope you had a great weekend!  With – hopefully! – good weather.  And maybe a little socially-distanced fun thrown in along the way!

Jsut a quick note – this is the 3rd of August…so…this is your last day to GATHER up Bonus Days coupons!  And – tomorrow will be the day you can start SPENDING them! Whooo-hoo!

And – something else is happening tomorrow…

What was that again…

Hmmm…

Oh – yeah.  The Aug – Dec 2020 Mini Catalog goes LIVE to customers!  YEAH!!

If you remember – the new Online Store is ALSO going active tomorrow at 7am Mountain Time!  I gave you some tips and info on that the other day – check it out right here if you need a refresher.   I’ll also send a reminder later on today, JIC! 🙂

Now.  My card!  I used a little stamp set that I’ve been enamored of since I first saw it in the new catalog – it’s called the Festive Corners set.  It covers Halloween, Christmas and Valentine’s Day!  I made it for Halloween, with the addition of some Magic In This Night DSP.  Take a look-see:

You might notice that it’s sort of….tall!  And….skinny!  Yep – that’s cuz I played along with the Freshly Made Sketches challenge this week!

I started with a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock and, in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, stamped the fun Festive Corners spider-web corner image in the top right hand corner.

I set the Spooky sentiment stamp in place and used it as a guide for the second – reversed – spider web.

Next, I stamped the aforementioned sentiment in Cinnamon Cider ink.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere a piece of Magic In This Night DSP on the bottom of the panel.

The last thing was to stamp the little spider-dude (dude-ette?) in Tuxedo Black.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Pumpkin Pie mat.

I wrapped a piece of Cinnamon Cider Ribbon around the panel, covering the seam, and tied a bow.  Then I popped the whole thing onto a Basic Black mat with Black Stampin’ Dimensionals.

A couple three Iridescent Pearls finished off the card front!

On the inside, I stamped the corner-sentiment in Cinnamon Cider in the top left-hand corner of a Very Vanilla panel.  Then I added a Pumpkin-Pie matted piece of the Magic In This Night DSP at the bottom.  A couple of Tuxedo Black spiders – and Iridescent Pearls! – finished it off!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to Pumpkin Pie and Basic Black mats and then into my Cinnamon Cider card base, popped the card front on with Black Stampin’ Dimensionals – and the card was done!

Et Voila!  I was right to really like this little Festive Corners stamp set – although you may have flown right over it as you looked thru your catalog!  But…go back and take another look – it’s really fun!

I hope you like!  And – FYI – Festive Corners is just one of the fun sets in my Special Bundle #3 – The Holiday Bundle!

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! Forever Poinsettia Petals 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 theme challenge from Laurie – her son is getting married in September.  Guess the theme?? 🙂  I know it’ll give your creative mojo a bump, so I hope you’ll come and play along with us!  🙂

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!

My parents were married in December – and, if I was ever going to do a vow renewal or something along those lines – I’d pick Christmas-time to do it.  And there’d be poinsettias and pine boughs and lots and lots of twinkly Christmas lights.  So…I decided to go with a Christmas-Wedding-motif.  And used the splendiferous Poinsettia Petals bundle and gorgeous Poinsettia Place DSP, with a couple of appropriate sentiments from Forever Blossoms, to get ‘er done.  Take a look-see:

And here’s our Paper Players sketch challenge badge!  Come play!

Always looking for design inspiration, I picked the layout from this week’s CAS(E) This Sketch challenge!

I started by die cutting a piece of Petal Pink card stock with the largest Stitched Rectangle Die.  Then I inked the stand-alone poinsettia flower image in the Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Petal Pink and stamped it all over the panel.

Next, I used a smaller Stitched Rectangle Die to cut a piece of wood-grain design Poinsettia Place DSP and adhered it to the Petal Pink panel with Liquid Glue.

I stamped a sentiment from Forever Blossoms in Early Espresso on a strip of Petal Pink, snipped banner ends, and adhered it with Liquid Glue.

The flowers are all cut from Very Vanilla – using both the cutting and the embossing dies for each size “flower” from the Poinsettia Dies Set.   Using a very dry Sponge Dauber, I added Petal Pink to the center of each flower-ette (?), lightly curled them, and adhered them in a stack with Liquid Glue.

I also cut some Very Vanilla berry-boughs – also in the Poinsettia Dies.

Here’s a thing you might not know!  In the Plush Poinsettia Specialty DSP – there are holly leaves, berries and flowers that you can cut with dies in the Poinsettia Dies set!  Whaaaa?!?!?

So – I did that – cut two holly leaves and two berries.  I sponged the holly with Mossy Meadow and the berries with Petal Pink.

I built the collage starting with leaves and berries – adhering them with Liquid Glue.  I added a loop or two of Linen Thread and Gold Trim from the Wonder of the Season Ribbon Combo Pack with a Glue Dot.  Then I popped the large flower on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I colored a Beaded Pearls with my Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blend and stuck it in the center of the flower.

I stacked a few more small flowers – also sponged with Petal Pink – and added them with Liquid Glue.  Their middles are Pearl Basic Jewels, colored with the Dark Daffodil Delight Blend.

To finish off – I added some Snowflake Sequins here and there with Liquid Glue and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a second Forever Blossoms sentiment in Early Espresso to a Very Vanilla panel.  In the corners, I added the flower image from Poinsettia Petals in Petal Pink.

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

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got another Petal Pink Poinsettia on the front…

…and some Poinsettia Place DSP on the envelope flap!

Et Voila!  See?  Who WOULDN’T want a Poinsettia Place-themed wedding?!?  With the absolute gorgeousness of this suite, I can’t imagine anyone thinking this was NOT a good idea! Think of all the wunnermus decor!

I hope you like!  And – you know, this is just ONE of the bundles included in my Special Bundle #4 – The Pretty Pretty Bundle!

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! In the Pines Bundle Sneak Peek Fun Fold with Video Tutorial

Happy Friday, y’all!  I hope you’ve had a wonderful week – we’ve been in the tropical storm pattern all week.  Muggy.  Hot.  Rain every day.

Guess how well our lavender plants are doing?

If you guessed…not so well, then…you are correct!  We’ve got as much drainage as we could manage but…the little babies are struggling with their wet feet.

They may have trench foot.  Hmm.  Maybe I need to sprinkle some Dr. Scholl’s foot powder on them? 🤔🤔🤔

Or not….

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! 🙂

I am really loving the In The Pines Bundle – with the wonderful tree images and simple sentiments for the season – and the bundled Pines Dies are truly stunning!  I used them – with some returning Brightly Gleaming Specialty DSP to make my fave fun fold – a Double-Easel.  Take a look-see:

Since this is a pretty Christmas-y card – even without the actual WORD on the card – I decided I could play along with the Christmas in July theme over at The Card Concept.  I think I’d classify this as somewhere between Clean-and-Layered and leaning toward Classy and Elegant, as far as the styles defined on the challenge. I took the trees and stars as starting points from the photo!  And then adapted it to more my style of Christmas card!

So –  take a gander at the video to see how to do the scoring and folding – basically, this is a regular A2 card made as a portrait tent card – in this case it’s a Soft Suede card base.

Then, I created the double-easel with a 4″ x 10 1/2″ piece of Night of Navy card stock – that I scored at 5 1/4″ and 7 7/8″ along the long side.

I adhered the “back” of the easel panel to a Crumb Cake mat.

The stars on the Night of Navy field come from the Brightly Gleaming Specialty DSP – which is returning in the Aug – Dec 2020 Mini Catalog!!  I adhered a piece to the back of the easel and a smaller piece on the front-most easel panel.

My “snow” is three pieces of Whisper White that I cut using the edge dies in the new Pines Die set.  I added “snow squiggles” in stamped-off-TWICE Night of Navy.  On the shortest “drift” – I stamped the sentiment from In The Pines in Night of Navy. Then I adhered the larger drift to the easel and popped the sentiment drift on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut numerous pine trees – both the solid and detailed tree cuts – in Mossy Meadow and stacked them with Liquid Glue.  Then I adhered two of them to the front easel with Liquid Glue and then added the Soft Suede Moose Punch moose.  I popped the final – large – tree onto the sentiment drift with Liquid Glue.

For the back panel – I VERY lightly sponge-daubered Night of Navy onto a Whisper White Layering Circles die cut – and my dauber was also VERY dry! – then I added it to the panel with Liquid Glue to create the full moon.

I adhered a small tree with Glue, added a snow drift and then popped a larger tree on top with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Then I added a single Star Designer Element by the sentiment and the card front/easel was done!

On the inside, I stamped a second In The Pines sentiment in Night of Navy on a Whisper White panel.  In the bottom corner I stamped the outline and fill tree shapes in Mossy Meadow and added stamped-off-TWICE Night of Navy snow quiggles.  And one more Star Designer Element!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to Night of Navy and Crumb Cake mats and into the Soft Suede A2 card base, adhered the card front/easel with Liquid Glue and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more In The Pines trees and snow squiggles on the front…

…and a little more Brightly Gleaming Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Oh my goodness – I do love how this In The Pines stamp set and bundled Pines Dies comes together on this fun double-easel, don’t you? They have the perfect images and sentiments…and die cut trees!!…

…to let you create wonderful snowy, Christmas-y scenes!  And – the Brightly Gleaming Specialty DSP is just as stunning and elegant now as it was when it debuted last year. SO happy it’s back!

I hope you like!

And – the In The Pines bundle is one of the goodies you can pick up – while saving a little money! – in my Winter Bundle #2!  Be sure to check that out, okay?

Just chillaxin – whiling away a warm summer morning waiting for the mom and dad to get done with the ponies and the garden. Keeping a LOOOW profile trying to avoid another bath, I suspect! 😉

It’s a hard life he leads, for sure.

Stampin’ Up! Heartwarming Hugs Tree Angle Sneak Peek

Happy happy HAWWWWMP day!!  And happy can-you-even-believe-it’s-practically Christmas day??

Yeah.  That’s not a real thing but…serious.  Can you believe the year is half over?  I mean – 2020 can just go ahead and get gone, but…wow.  It’s flying!

Now – I mentioned Christmas cuz I’m playing with a Christmas theme today with my card.  There’s a bundle in the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog called The Right Triangle – and I bought it specifically so I’d have the Stitched Triangles Dies that are part of the bundle.  I NEEDED those cuz of the Tree Angle stamp set in the Aug – Dec 2020 Mini Catalog.  That one really caught my eye – although it’s kind of a flyover set and one you may have thumbed right by!  I combined it with some homey-cozy paper from the Heartwarming Hugs DSP.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Gather Together Video Sneak Peek

Good Morning, y’all!  Happy weekend to you!  Hope you’ve got something planned.  And hoping that whatever it is is fun!

We have plans to re-introduce the Finn-man to the joys of…a shampoo and blow out.

Which I would like myself!!

But – HE gets it instead.  Got to get some of that hair and that….aroma?…off!!  Going to do it in the barn – versus taking him to Puppy Tubs.  Might regret that decision…. 😉

Tonight – after the spa day – I’ll be going live at 7pm Eastern on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page.  I’ve got a fun card – well, I think it’s fun! – for you using a returning favorite stamp set and die!  Take a sneaky peek.

It’s a good one that’s right in the middle of my wheelhouse so…that’s a pretty good hint for you!

Hope you can join me.

Tonight.  7pm Eastern.  Right here!

Stampin’ Up! Plaid Tidings Happiest of Birthdays Video Tutorial Sneak Peek

Good morning and welcome to the weekend!

We’ve got a few errands – all masked up, thank you very much.  And then this afternoon, if we can beat the rain, it’s time to get a load of hay for the ladies!  Getting hay in when it’s a million degrees with the same humidity?  Oh yes – horse ownership is a glamorous life, indeed! 😉  But – the sense of well being that comes from a barn full to the rafters with round bales of good horse hay…can’t be beat for a horse owner.  So – we’ll get it done.

Thank GOODNESS for heavy equipment.  That’s all I have to say about that! 🙂

Now this evening, after all that is done – and hopefully after a shower – 😳😳😳 – I’m planning to go live at 7pm eastern over on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page.  I’ve got a fun project for you using the Happiest of Birthdays stamp set….take a sneaky peek!

Okay – it’s a fun fold.  You wore me down! 😉

Hopefully you’ll be able to join me to see it play out in the gorgeous Plaid Tidings DSP!

Tonight.  7pm Eastern.  Right here!

Finn Fan Fix


On Friday – we took a big excursion to the bank to cash a check.

It’s about 5 miles round trip.  And that includes the 1/3 mile of driveway!!

But – when asked, Finn enthusiastically agreed that a quick trip to the bank was just the thing for a too-hot-for-furry-dogs Friday.

So…we all piled into the van and headed out.

Why did he want to go?

Well – any ride  – any time  – anywhere is sort of his motto.

Also?  The teller ALWAYS passes a milk bone for him.

Any bone – any time – anywhere.

See a pattern?

We left the window down some for him on the way home.

He likes that a lot!

If you look close in this next one – you can see his lips blowing in the breeze.

That’s how you know it’s been a good ride.

Your lips get blown!

Stampin’ Up! Sweetest Time Sneak Peek Fun Fold with Video Tutorial!

Happy Friday, y’all!  It’s been a busy time here for us – Wayne’s been working outside, sawing lumber and repairing fences.  Mowing the never-ending grass.  We’ve worked in the garden – you can see a little of the “fruits” of our labors in Finn’s spot below.  And, of course, it’s been hot and muggy and generally….the South-in-Summer!

Which is why, with all my Aug – Dec 2020 Mini Catalog pre-order goodies looking me in the face, I’ve been making some winter-ish cards.  As I predicted when I was griping about being cold a few months ago…now?  Yep.  Griping about being hot.  My 4 degree comfort-zone-window is being breached at every turn! LOL!

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! 🙂

This is a really cool fun-fold, it’s called a Dutch-Door Gate Fold and I think you’ll see why in a sec.  I used the beautiful new Sweetest Time stamp set with the amazing and bundled Sweetest Borders Dies.  Take a look-see:

Yes – if you’re looking closely – you’ll see that this card looks different from the card in the video thumbnail.  There’s a reason for that – and you’ll need to watch the video to find out what it is! 🙂

For this one, I started by scoring, cutting and folding a 7 1/2″ x 11″ piece of Real Red card stock as shown in the video – and according to this template…

Once I had it all cut and folded, I decorated the gates with some pretty, new Plush Poinsettia Specialty DSP matted on Mossy Meadow.  I used Glue Dots – hidden behind the flocked images on the DSP – to adhere it to the mats and then used Liquid Glue to adhere the panels to the fronts of the gates.

Pretty, huh? 🙂

I stamped the three-candle image from Sweetest Time in Real Red on Whisper White and fussy cut it, then popped it onto a Whisper White panel with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a Daffodil Delight “flame” above each candle with the little stamp in the set.

Using the dies in the Sweetest Borders Dies, I cut a bunch of holly leaves and pine boughs in Pear Pizzazz and Mossy Meadow.  I also stamped berries in Real Red and cut them out as well.

I added the leaves and boughs around the candles with Liquid Glue.  I tied a bow with the Gold Trim from the Wonder of the Season Ribbon Combo pack and adhered it with a Glue Dot.  Finally,  I adhered the berries with Liquid Glue and Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Whisper White, I stamped the Sweetest Time sentiment in Mossy Meadow, snipped banner ends and adhered it with Liquid Glue – and a Mini Stampin’ Dimensional on each end.  I used more Liquid Glue to mat the panel on Mossy Meadow and adhere it to the top panel of the card base – and the front of the gate card was done!

On the inside, I added a second Sweetest Time sentiment in Mossy Meadow to a Whisper White panel.  Under it, I stamped Real Red candles and Daffodil Delight flames, as well as a couple of Pear Pizzazz holly leaves.

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 another candle and holly leaves on the front…

…and added the candles to the envelope flap, as well!

Et Voila!  This Sweetest Time stamp set – and its bundled (and AWESOME!) Sweetest Borders Dies – is a great bundle to have in your kit bag as we get ready to head into the holiday season.

And don’t miss the gorgeous Plush Poinsettia Specialty DSP (you can get a taste of it in my Aug – Dec 2020 Mini Catalog Shares!)…

Hint:  you can actually cut those flocked poinsettia flowers with one of the dies in the new Poinsettia Dies set!  Cool, huh?

I hope you like and are adding these goodies to your gotta-have-it-right-away list!  The catalog goes live on 4 Aug for customers or… you could join Stampin’ Up! with me right now and select any or all of these new goodies to fill your Starter Kit and then get at least 20% off EVERYTHING you buy for as long as you stay active! 😉

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.  This is the card in the video thumbnail!  It’s a CASE of the sample card on page 21 in the Aug – Dec 2020 Mini Catalog and it uses the fun edgelit die with the holly leaves and pine boughs.  I explain in the video how to make it if you prefer this version!  Yup – it’s a two-fer.  Sort of! 😉

Finn Fan Fix


Finn asked me to share a little garden bounty with you.

So here it is – our first Mater Sandwich tomato of the season (which – fun fact – is on a plant that I’d pretty much given up for dead 5 weeks ago!!)

These pictures are about 2 days apart!

Big and starting to get a little blush…

A little more…

…and almost Wonder-Bread-and-mayonnaise ready!

I’m trying to decide…mater sandwich on white bread/mayo/salt/pepper?  Or…big slab of mater on half of an Everything Bagel – salt/pepper/slice of cheese on top – under the broiler for a little toast!?!

Both?!?

Decisions decisions… 🙂

Stamps-N-Lingers Snowflake Splendor 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 this week, I first thought…”ocean”.  So I headed to the Whale Done bundle and Whale of a Time DSP.  But THEN….I thought…SNOW!  So, I totally pivoted and went for the new Snowflake Splendor Suite goodies in the Aug – Dec 2020 Mini Catalog (available to customers on 4 Aug!).  Take a look-see:

 

And here’s our oceany/snowflakey color challenge this week (I picked Balmy Blue for my fourth color)!

I used the sketch side of the current FUSION challenge for the layout.

I started with a piece of Pool Party paper from the Snowflake Splendor DSP and I embossed it in the Winter Snow Embossing Folder (coming on 4 Aug), then I matted it on Pacific Point for the card front.

Next, using the smallest square Stitched Shapes Dies, I cut 12 squares from a different paper in the Snowflake Splendor DSP.  Using Liquid Glue, I adhered them in a grid on the card front.

Using Stampin’ Seal, I adhered a few loops of new Snowflake Splendor 1/4″ Ribbon (also coming on 4 Aug).

With the So Many Snowflakes dies – the MOST wunnermus die set bundled with the Snowflake Wishes stamp set in the suite – I cut some Whisper White snowflakes and some Balmy Blue Glimmer Paper (loooooove this!!!).  I adhered them here, there and everywhere on the card front with Liquid Glue.

On a strip of Whisper White, in Just Jade ink, I stamped the Snowflake Wishes sentiment.  I snipped banner-ends with my Paper Snips and popped the banner onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added some Blue Adhesive-Backed Gems (part of the suite and available on 4 Aug) and some Pool Party gems from the Holiday Rhinestones (available right now in the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog).  And that was it for the card front!

On the inside, I stamped a second sentiment from Snowflake Wishes in Just Jade on a Whisper White panel.  I added some stamped snowflakes in Pool Party and Balmy Blue, and adhered a die cut Balmy Blue Glimmer Paper snowflake.  I added some Blue Adhesive-Backed Gems and Holiday Rhinestones, just cuz I could!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Pacific Point mat and into my Just Jade card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Snowflake Wishes snowflakes on the front…

…and a little more Snowflake Splendor DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Y’all – we’ve had a lot of snowflake bundles – with stamp sets and snowflake dies – but this Snowflake Wishes with the wonderful So Many Snowflakes Dies is simply stunning!!

And the Snowflake Splendor DSP and Balmy Blue Glimmer Paper are gorgeous, right?

And – although it’s not just POPPING out at you on this card, you’re going to want the Winter Snow Embossing Folder (I promise!).

I hope you like – and are adding the truly splendiforous Snowflake Splendor suite to your must-have list!! 😉

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