Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals Thanks for a Wonderful Season

Well – good morning – and happy Monday!  It’s a short work week, with T-day on Thursday.  Do y’all have Friday off, too?  I hope so.  That might be the day you put up your tree, right?

Finny got some really good news yesterday.  Sonya is coming back soon!!  Next week – I’ll have a Sonya-clean house again – not a Mary/Wayne-clean.  These are TOTALLY different “cleans”.  Finny loves Miss Sonya, too (albeit for different reasons!) – and he’s super excited that she’s coming back!!  To be clear – his excitement doesn’t even come close to mine!! 😉

My card today took a step back to the gorgeous Poinsettia Petals bundle and coordinating Poinsettia Place DSP!  I made a cross-season card with it – sort of Thanksgiving – sort of Christmas – ALL pretty!  Take a look-see:

I played with two challenges on this one.  The first is the Festive Friday challenge – I got twine/leaves/wood/cranberry in!

And I also took inspiration from this week’s Hand Stamped Sentiment photo challenge.

I started with the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder.  Using my Crumb Cake ink pad, I swiped it all across the embossing side of the folder then placed a piece of Crumb Cake card stock inside and ran it thru the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine.

Then I matted the panel on a piece of Merry Merlot for the card front.

Next, I matted two pieces of Poinsettia Place DSP on Merry Merlot and then adhered them to the card front at a jaunty angle.

On a piece of Very Vanilla, I stamped a sentiment from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Soft Suede then cut it out with a Tasteful Labels die.  I adhered the label to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I used the Poinsettia Dies to cut out one of the poinsettia flowers printed on the Poinsettia Place DSP.  I also fussy cut another inside-petals – and popped that over the die cut flower with some Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I also cut some Mossy Meadow holly leaves and a few berries from Merry Merlot.  These are all adhered to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I tied a loose figure-8 bow with some Linen Thread and adhered it with a Glue Dot.  Then I popped the poinsettia over top with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added some Gold Glitter Enamel Dots – and the card front was done!

On the inside, on a Very Vanilla panel, I stamped the poinsettia from Poinsettia Petals in stamped-off-once Soft Suede.  Then I added some berries in stamped-off-once Merry Merlot.  I used a Blender Pen to pull some of the Merry Merlot ink into the berries – and my Light So Saffron Stampin’ Blend to color the flower and flower centers.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Merry Merlot mat and into my Soft Suede card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got the stamped-off-once flower and berries on the front…

…and more of the Poinsettia Place DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  It’s hard for me to find a more-favorite bundle in the Aug-Dec 2020 Mini Catalog than the Poinsettia Petals and Poinsettia Dies!  Especially when you add in some of the Poinsettia Place DSP.

And…a Pinewood Planks 3D embossed panel just brings it home!  I hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix 

Our local Puppy Tubs has had to temporarily shut down the “tubs” part of their facility – thank you, COVID….

So – we went to Tractor Supply to THEIR self-bathing spot.

That was kind of a bait-and-switch situation for the fur-bucket.

On the one hand he loves TSC. On the other…bath! 😳😳😳

I couldn’t get a shot during the bath itself cuz I was elbow deep in suds and dog hair.

But the aftermath – the BLOW DRYER! – I got!


Dad!!  I get Mom’s obsession with me being clean but….YOU TOO!?!?

We got MOST of the eau-de-dead-thing off but…there’s still a whiff here and there… 🙁

Stampin’ Up! Warm Hugs 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 – Leanne came up with a really fun sketch for us this week.  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!

I decided to play along with the Global Design Projects theme challenge this week and so pulling out the Warm Hugs stamp set with the Warm Wraps dies bundled in seemed like the right way to go.  A little Heartwarming Hugs DSP was the perfect finishing touch.  Take a look-see:

And here’s our Paper Players sketch – I hope you’ll come and play along! 🙂

As I mentioned, the Global Design Project was a theme challenge this week!

I started with three coordinating pieces of Heartwarming Hugs DSP – 1″ wide strips, cut into 1 1/4″ and 1 3/4″ lengths.  I adhered these to a piece of Mossy Meadow card stock with Liquid Glue.

Then I ran the entire panel thru the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine in the Dainty Diamonds 3 Embossing Folder.

On a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock, I stamped the Warm Hugs sentiment in Mossy Meadow. Next to it, I stamped the little coffee mug in Crumb Cake and added the fill image in Real Red.  A little Crumb Cake “steam” adds a final little touch!

I adhered the panel to a Mossy Meadow mat and then wrapped a piece of Real Red 3/16″ Braided Trim around the panel.  Then I popped my embossed art panel on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a piece of Whisper White, I stamped the mug three times in Crumb Cake and Real Red and cut them all out with the matching Warm Wraps die.  They’re popped in place with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I tied a bow around the Real Red trim with a shorter length of the trim – then added a Red Rhinestone Basic Jewel to the middle of all the mugs…and the card front was done!

For the inside, I stamped one of the circle images from Warm Hugs in Mossy Meadow on Crumb Cake – then added the mug image in the middle in Crumb Cake and Real Red.  I added a Red Rhinestone Basic Jewel to this mug, too!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Mossy Meadow mat and into my Real Red card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got the Warm Hugs mug on the front…

…and a little more Heartwarming Hugs DSP on the envelope flap!

Et Voila!  The Warm Hugs stamp set and bundled Warm Wraps Dies – along with the Heartwarming Hugs DSP – is part of the sweet Heartwarming Hugs Suite in the Aug – Dec 2020 Mini Catalog!

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…take a look at what the rest of the team has to offer!  Then pull out your ink and papers and have a little fun challenge! 🙂

Online Host Club Openings – and a New Customer Bonus!

I’ve got openings ONE MORE OPENING in my Online Host Club starting on 1 Dec – and new little bonus for my Customers – which will ALSO be one of the new benefits of being in an Online Host Club!  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.
  • 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.   This is a great time to join a club – with the pending release of the 2021 Jan – Jun Mini Catalog and SALE-A-BRATION fixin’ to start in January, too!

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!

Now – the new Customer Bonus!

So – I’m setting up a “ZOOM The Craftroom” time with me every week!  Every Monday, I’ll be in my craft room doing…something!… and you can pop in and we’ll craft together and chat or…whatever!  Very casual – no makeup required (I for sure won’t have any on!).  It’s a great time to ask questions or get help with problems or issues you’re having!  Or…we can just work on our projects together and yak.

Finn Fan Fix 

Friday was Finn’s semi-Annual Checkup.

Unlike most dogs I’ve known – Finn LOVES the vet.

He loves the vet – and the techs – and the receptionists – and the clients – and…well.  Pretty much anything associated with the vet!

The new COVID protocol is….I wait in the exam room and he goes back to get his shots, blood draw, weight, and mani/pedi.

Then he comes back in and we wait for the vet to come tell us the findings!

You’ll be glad to know that his eyes are bright and his teeth good.  Heart – lungs – belly…all there.  And clear and strong and soft (you decide which is which but…it’s all good!).  Got his bloodwork back on Saturday and…all normal!

He studied good for this test!  Good boy, Finn – well done!!

Next up?  Get rid of that SMELL! 😳😳

Stampin’ Up! Wrapped in Christmas for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hey y’all – it’s Thursday, so it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!!  We’ve got a color 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!

When I saw the color scheme we had for today, I saw “Christmas” (and I think you would, too!).  So…I pulled out the Wrapped in Christmas stamp set and some Plaid Tidings DSP.  Take a look-see:

And here’s our color challenge!  We had to pick at least three of the colors, but… I feel like I hit all of them with my three plaid patterns! 🙂

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

And – I played along at the Tic-Tac-Toe challenge, too!  I went down the diagonal from left to right!

I saw Linda Callahan’s cute card using this sketch and it gave me the idea to pull out the Rectangular Postage Stamp Punch!

I started with a Crumb Cake panel that I ran thru my Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine in the Dainty Diamonds 3D Embossing Folder, then matted on Cherry Cobbler for the card front.

I took three patterns from the Plaid Tidings DSP and punched three Rectangular Postage Stamp Punches.  I also punched three Cherry Cobbler pieces and adhered the plaid cut-outs to the Cherry Cobbler mats using Liquid Glue.

I used a Glue Dot to adhere a Gold Hoop Embellishment to the card front – then adhered a big bow tied with the gold trim from the Wonder of the Season Ribbon Combo Pack with another Glue Dot.

I adhered the three matted pieces of Plaid Tidings to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and Liquid Glue.

I put a piece of Whisper White into my Stamparatus and used it to stamp the sentiment from the Wrapped in Christmas stamp set.  I colored the stamp using the Marker-to-Rubber technique and my Cherry Cobbler and Garden Green.  Tip:  use the Stamparatus!  And…don’t press the stamp down too hard – it can cause “clumping” of ink when you use the Marker-to-Rubber technique.  Instead…ink…huff warm breath over the stamp to reactivate the ink – stamp – repeat as often as necessary.  Layering the ink works much better than trying to get it all done on one stamping.  And the Stamparatus makes it possible!  🙂

I cut the sentiment with my 1 1/2″ Circle Punch and popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

A few Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels in Cherry Cobbler finished off the card front.

On the inside, I used the Marker-to-Rubber technique again to stamp a second Wrapped in Christmas sentiment onto a Whisper White panel.  I added some Garden Green fluer-de-do’s in the corner and a couple three Cherry Cobbler gems, too!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat and into my Garden Green card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got some Wrapped in Christmas fluer-de-do’s in Garden Green on the front…

…and more of the Plaid Tidings DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Crumb Cake – Plaid Tidings – and sweet Wrapped in Christmas sentiments – all atop a Dainty Diamonds 3D embossed panel!  Pretty perfect for Christmas, huh?  I hope you like.

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

Stampin’ Up! Tree Angle Joy & Cheer Christmas

Good morning and Happy Happy HAWWWWMP DAY!  Hope your week is going well – I’m in post away-from-home try-to-get-in-the-swing-of-things mode!  FINALLY got back on the treadmill on Tuesday.  Bleh – but…have I mentioned that I really like wearing clothes straight off the rack (from JJill if possible – like…when it’s on sale!!) and knowing with very little doubt that a medium will fit?? ROFL!

So…back to the careful-of-every-bite regime and….the dreadmill.

My card today is a clean and simple one that is quick to make for Christmas!  I used the sweet little Tree Angle stamp set – one of the flyover sets in the current mini catalog.  It coordinates with the Stitched Triangles Dies (part of The Right Triangle bundle in the Annual Catalog) – which is handy!  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from the CAS(E) This Sketch this week.

And the color palette is from The Spot color challenge.

I started with a piece of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the sentiment from Tree Angle at the bottom in Real Red.   Then I matted it on Mossy Meadow for the card front.

On another piece of Whisper White, I stamped some trees.  All of the trees – except one of the smallest ones – was stamped in Pear Pizzazz.  That lone tree was stamped in Mossy Meadow.

On the more….squatty?…tree (the isosceles triangle, if you’re interested in my mad math skills!)…I added the Tree Angle poinsettia image in Real Red and the leaves in Mossy Meadow.

I cut the trees out with their matching dies in the Stitched Triangle Dies.

I adhered the flower-strewn tree at the top with Liquid Glue.  Then I added the rest of the trees with Stampin’ Dimensionals and Liquid Glue.

I tied a little bow from Real Red 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim and adhered it to the top tree with a Glue Dot.  Tip:  the braided trim can be gently pulled apart to make it a little wider and…”lacier”!

I added Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the trees (and the middle of the poinsettias!) and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped the Tree Angle sentiment three times in Real Red on a Whisper White panel.  In the corner I added the isosceles tree again – letting it spill off the corner of the panel.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Mossy Meadow mat and into my Pear Pizzazz card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got the Tree Angle tree with Poinsettias on the front…

…and I pulled out some Heartwarming Hugs DSP for the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This little “flyover” Tree Angle set is deceptively easy to overlook.  The sweet little tree images – with their old-fashioned decoration – should not be missed.  Especially given that you can get the dies to cut them out -when you purchase the Stitched Triangles die set – either on its own or…better!…as part of a money-saving bundle with The Right Triangle stamp set! 🙂

 

I hope you like – and will pick this up for your Christmas cards!!

Online Host Club Openings – and a New Customer Bonus!

I’ve got openings in my Online Host Club starting on 1 Dec – and new little bonus for my Customers – which will ALSO be one of the new benefits of being in an Online Host Club!  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.
  • 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.   This is a great time to join a club – with the pending release of the 2021 Jan – Jun Mini Catalog and SALE-A-BRATION fixin’ to start in January, too!

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!

Now – the new Customer Bonus!

So – I’m setting up a “ZOOM The Craftroom” time with me every week!  Every Monday, I’ll be in my craft room doing…something!… and you can pop in and we’ll craft together and chat or…whatever!  Very casual – no makeup required (I for sure won’t have any on!).  It’s a great time to ask questions or get help with problems or issues you’re having!  Or…we can just work on our projects together and yak.

Like the Ordering Gifts – you’ll receive the Zoom meeting link when you place an order of $50 or greater (before shipping and tax)!  There’ll be a new link every month.  All you do is download Zoom and then you can click on the link at the start of the Office Hours and you’ll be in!  No account needed.  🙂

Finn missed me pretty bad, I guess.  When I got home the other night, he acted like he hadn’t seen me in 4 months – not 4 days!

And then that evening….

Good thing we have a loooooong sofa!! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Have a Hoot Christmas For the Paper Players

Hey y’all – it’s Sunday, which means I’ve got another fun challenge for you from the Paper Players – Ann’s getting us thinking about Christmas again with a Clean-And-Simple theme challenge this week.  I know it’ll give your creative mojo a bump!  So I hope you’ll come and play along with us!

I pulled out the sweet little Have a Hoot stamp set (didn’t need to use the bundled Peek-a-Hoot dies this time – but they’re there!) and used it as the starting point for my wintery Christmas card – with the pretty Snowflake Splendor DSP playing backup.  Take a look-see:

And here’s our Paper Players badge – I hope you’ll come and play along! 🙂

I used the sketch from Mojo Monday for my layout.

I started with a piece of the Snowflake Spendor DSP matted on Highland Heather cardstock for the card front.

On another piece of Highland Heather, I cut the edge with the Peony Dies scalloped edge die.  I adhered another Snowflake Splendor designs to it and then adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I put a piece of Whisper White cardstock into the Stamparatus and then used the Marker-to-Rubber technique to color and stamp parts of the Have A Hoot image.  Hint:  Using the Stamparatus is the bomb-diggity with this method, because you can just keep coloring and stamping as many times as you need to lay down any color you want.  And – the Cling stamps (aka Red Rubber) work the best with it, but you CAN do it with photopolymers, too! 🙂

I colored the owl with my Smoky Slate Marker, the snowflakes and present with Purple Posy, the branch with Crumb Cake and the leaves with Pretty Peacock.

When it was colored to my exacting standards (😎) – I cut the image with a circle Stitched Shapes die and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

On another piece of Whisper White, I stamped the Have a Hoot sentiment in Highland Heather and fussy cut the two words.

I tied a little bow from a piece of the Misty Moonlight/Silver Baker’s Twine from the Flowers for Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack and adhered it with a Glue Dot.

Using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals and a dab of Liquid Glue,  I popped one sentiment word over the bow and then added the second word with just the Mini Dimensionals.

I stuck on a few Adhesive-backed Snowflakes here and there on the card front, and added a couple of Coastal Cabana Holiday Rhinestones – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a Highland Heather-matted strip of Snowflake Splendor DSP and some Adhesive-backed Snowflakes to a piece of Whisper White cardstock.

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got the little Have a Hoot owl on the front (colored just like I’d done for the one on the front of the card!)…

…and more Snowflake Splendor DSP on the envelope flap!

Et Voila!  These little Have-a-Hoot guys just kill me….they’re so stinkin’ cute!  And the set covers Halloween cards as well as Christmas.  The matching Peek-a-Hoot dies (bundled for a 10% savings!) are super handy when you need to cut your images out – no fussy cutting!

And there’s no denying the frosty beauty of the Snowflake Splendor DSP!

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…take a look at what the rest of the team has to offer!  Then pull out your ink and papers and have a little fun challenge! 🙂

Finn Fan Fix 

On Thursday evening, we went to The Pelican Inn – the venue – and had dinner with most of Courtney’s family and the wedding party.  It was a low country boil and it was sooooo good!  On newspaper and everything! That’s Matt and Katelyn (our recently married couple!) on the left and FOG Ed on the right! 🙂  The MOG (Jan) is off the picture – that’s her hand holding a shrimp.  Yes – I know.  Awesome picture, Mare!  But look how nicely I framed the cocktail sauce! LOL

I got a picture of the lovely Courtney (the BTB) with all the gorgeous flowers she and her family would be fashioning into bouquets on Friday.

After, we mingled around in the beautiful inn and…I learned Mexican Train Dominoes.  And by “learn” I mean….hobbled thru two games with some help from the other players!

I think the other three players were pretty shocked that I won both games!!

Not, however, as shocked as I was!! 😂😂😂

Stampin’ Up! Healing Hugs and Angled Plaid Tidings

Good morning!  As you read this, I’m hopefully not even up yet!  ROFL!

Like THAT’LL happen!  I’ll be waking up on the beach on Pawley’s Island – and getting ready for the rehearsal dinner tonight.  Then tomorrow is the Big Day!

Like anyone would, I brought my Mealthy Multi-pot so we can have breakfast at the house – I have plans for steel cut oatmeal today with all the extras and Stuffed French Toast with Blueberries tomorrow!  Yum!!

Oh – in case you’re wondering – this is a calories-don’t-count weekend.  I enacted an Executive Order…

So – card!  I used the Healing Hugs stamp set to make a pretty Get Well card – and I combined it with some Plaid Tidings!  Take a look-see:

This kind of unusual color palette comes from the As You See It challenge this week.

I started with a piece of Petal Pink cardstock that I embossed in the Dainty Diamonds 3D Embossing Folder and adhered to the front of my Basic Gray card base with Liquid Glue.  Tip: remember that embossing a panel that’s the same size as your card front is a great way to get the look – without actually embossing the front of your card base (which can distort the card stock).  🙂

I matted two pieces of Plaid Tidings 6″ x 6″ DSP on Flirty Flamingo and adhered them to the front of the card at a jaunty angle with Liquid Glue.

I adhered a Gold Hoop Embellishment to the card front with a couple of Glue Dots.

For the bows – I cut two lengths of the black and white baker’s twine from the Playful Pets Trim Combo Pack.  I used my Dark Petal Pink Stampin’ Blend to color one of the pieces.

I tied each piece into a bow and adhered them to the card front with Glue Dots – I offset them a little!

I stamped the Healing Hugs sentiment in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a piece of Whisper White.  Over top, I stamped the floral image in Petal Pink.  Then I cut it with a Tasteful Labels die.

I popped the sentiment over the bows and hoop with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a single Champagne Rhinestone to the sentiment and a few more here and there around the card front and the card was done!

On the inside, I added a second Healing Hugs sentiment in Tuxedo Black on a Whisper White panel and added the Petal Pink flower over top.  Then I added a Champagne Rhinestone!

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got the Healing Hugs flower in Petal Pink on the front…

… and I added another piece of Plaid Tidings to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Healing Hugs is such a pretty card with perfect sentiments and sweet images for cards that we have to make – even if we’d rather not need them, right?

I hope you like and that you’ve got this handy set in your stash (AND some Plaid Tidings DSP!!) – if not…get on that, okay?!

Stampin’ Up! Dove of Hope and Peace for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hey y’all – it’s Thursday, so 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!

After perusing my stamp case shelves, I landed on the gorgeous Dove of Hope set – realizing I hadn’t used it in a minute!  Nor made one of the beautiful die-cut doves with the bundled Detailed Dove Dies.  So…I added in a Joy Dies sentiments and a Gold Card & Envelope and….take a look-see:

And – here’s our sketch!

I pulled my color palette from the challenge over at TGIF.

And my Dove let me play along at Tic-Tac-Toe this week, too! I ended up going down the diagonal: Gold – Frame – Bird. 🙂

I matted a piece of Very Vanilla on a Crushed Curry mat for the card front.  Then I took a strip of Merry Merlot paper from the Neutrals 6″ x 6″ DSP, matted IT on Crushed Curry and adhered it to the Very Vanilla panel with Liquid Glue.

Using the Detailed Dove dies, I cut two detailed wings and the body from a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock.  I cut two solid wings from some Gold Foil.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the detailed wings to the solid wings.  I also adhered the tail of the dove to a piece of Gold Foil – and used my snips to trim the excess.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the wings to the body and then popped the whole thing onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Using the Joy Dies – I cut a Peace sentiment from Garden Green and then the thinner sentiment from Crushed Curry.  I adhered them together with Liquid Glue and used Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop it onto the card front.

I adhered a single gold star – from the Wonder of the Season Memories & More Card pack – and the card front was done!

For the inside, I stamped the Dove of Hope sentiment in Merry Merlot in the center of a Very Vanilla panel.  I added the bough from the set in stamped off TWICE Garden Green.  Then I adhered another of the Gold Star stickers!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Crushed Curry mat and into my Gold Card (from the Gold Cards & Envelopes) – popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Gold Envelope got…nuthin’!  That gold is such a rich and shimmery color – it needs nothing more! 🙂

Et Voila!  I love how stunning the dove is when you put it together from the die cuts in the Detailed Dove dies, don’t you?  And the sentiments and images in the bundled Dove of Hope stamp set complement it perfectly.  The Joy Dies are…ready?…a real….JOY to work with – letting you easily create multi-layered “Joy” – “Peace”  – “Bright”  sentiments.

I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Gilded Autumn for the Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop

Happy Happy Hawwmp Day!!  And welcome to another edition of the Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop.   I hope you’ll sit down and spend a little time with us – regardless of where YOU are in the world! 🙂  I know you’re going to see some awesome projects!

Like most hops, we have a theme each month – and this month’s is “Market – All About Texture”!   Which means – well….it’s pretty open-ended!  I went with Fall colors – leaves from the Beautiful Autumn Bundle – and “houndstooth” from Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP and textured panels!  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one comes from this week’s CAS(E) This Sketch challenge.

And the color palette is courtesy of the Sunday Stamps challenge.

I matted a piece of houndstooth paper from the Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP on a piece of Bumble Bee cardstock for the card front.

Next, I embossed a strip of Very Vanilla and embossed it in one of the Wrapped in Texture embossing folders, matted it on Bumble Bee and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

On another piece of Very Vanilla cardstock, I stamped the little maple leaf from the Beautiful Autumn stamp set four times in Early Espresso.  Using my Pumpkin Pie and Cherry Cobbler Blends – I colored the leaves and then punched them with their punch from the bundled Autumn Punch Pack.

I stamped Thank You – from Beautiful Autumn – in Cherry Cobbler on a Very Vanilla strip that I’d punched banner ends into with my Banners Pick a Punch.

I tied a double loop Linen Thread bow and then spaced it and the four leaves down the Very Vanilla panel.

I adhered the bow with a Glue Dot and the leaves with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Finally – I used double-stacked Dimensionals to adhere the sentiment banner over the bow.

A Pumpkin Pie gem from the Holiday Rhinestone Basic jewels finished off the card front.

On the inside, I stamped the maple leaf three times across the bottom of a Very Vanilla panel and colored them with my Blends as I’d done for the front.

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

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got more Beautiful Autumn leaves on the front…

…and a little more houndstooth Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  The sentiments in this Beautiful Autumn set are wonderful – with gorgeous fonts!  And, I love these diminutive leaves – and I love even MORE that they all have a matching PUNCH!!

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!

Stampin’ Up! Celebration Plaid Tidings & Tags for the Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Good morning, y’all – welcome to another edition of Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team blog hop!  Each month we make projects centered around a theme – and this month our theme is Christmas or Happy Holidays!  We can interpret that any way we want – so…be sure to check and see everyone’s projects – we’ve got a bunch of talented ladies hopping with us this month!

I pulled out the Celebrations Tidings stamp set with the bundled Celebration Labels dies and added a touch of Plaid Tidings for my project today!  Take a look-see:

 

The layout for this one is from the MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge!

I started by embossing a piece of Crumb Cake card stock in the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder for the card front.

Then I cut three strips of beautiful and Christmas-y paper from the Plaid Tidings 6″ x 6″ DSP and adhered them across the panel with Liquid Glue.

On a strip of Very Vanilla – in two corners – I stamped the holiday greenery from Celebration Tidings in Crumb Cake ink.  I colored the leaves with my Blender Pen – picking up ink from the Shaded Spruce ink pad lid.  I did the same with Cherry Cobbler for the berries.  Finally, I colored the final “leaves” with my Light Mango Melody Stampin’ Blend.

I matted the strip on Cherry Cobbler and popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I used a little Stampin’ Seal to adhere a couple loops of 3/8″ Embroidered Ribbon.

On another piece of Crumb Cake, I stamped the Celebration Tidings sentiment in Cherry Cobbler and then I cut it out with a die from the Celebration Labels Dies.

I added a couple of fluer-do-do’s with the stamps in Celebration Tidings in Crumb Cake – and popped the label over the ribbon with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  And that was it for the card front!

On the inside on a Crumb Cake panel, I stamped the greenery again in Crumb Cake – coloring them as I’d done on the front.  Then I added my Tag Buffet sentiment in Cherry Cobbler.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat and into my Crumb Cake card base – popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got another of the Celebration Tidings Christmas greenery on the front…

…and some more of the Christmas-y Plaid Tidings on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I love how this design turned out with the Celebration Tidings bundle working so well with the Plaid Tidings DSP, don’t you?  Celebration Tidings is a great season-holiday-spanning stamp set!  And the Celebration Labels is perfect for framing these – and so many more! – sentiments for your projects!

I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Cherish the Classic Christmas Season 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 – Joanne’s getting us thinking about Christmas with her color challenge to us this week.  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!

I wanted to do a fun-fold with you – so that’s what this is!  And I love the Shaded Spruce papers in the new Classic Christmas 6″ x 6″ DSP – which made it an obvious place to start.  Then I added some Cherish the Season – with its bundled Sounds of the Season dies.  Take a look-see:

And here’s our Paper Players badge – I hope you’ll come and play along! 🙂

 

I have several of the elements from the Festive Friday challenge (leaves, gold and green)!

And it’s pretty perfect for the Inspired By challenge this week!

This fun fold is uber-easy!  It starts with a piece of 4 1/4″ x 11″ Shaded Spruce card stock – scored at 5 1/2″ and again at 6 3/4″.  I folded it at 5 1/2″ like a “regular” card – then I folded it the “other” way at the 6 3/4″ mark.

I used Stampin’ Seal on the 1 1/4” section between the two score lines to adhere the front and back of the card base together. That creates the side-fold – and all the rest is pure decorating!

I matted a larger piece and a second smaller strip of the Classic Christmas 6″ x 6″ DSP on Real Red.  The large panel was adhered to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I stuck the card stock part way into the edge of the Classic Label punch and punched a notch in the top of the left side of the card base – the part that’s adhered together with the Stampin’ Seal.   I did the same on the bottom.

I adhered the smaller matted strip to the smaller part of the card base.  Then I wrapped some gold trim from the Wonder of the Season Ribbon Combo Pack around the card front – securing it with a Glue Dot on the front.  I tied a little bow and adhered it over the “seam” with another Glue Dot.

I stamped a sentiment from Cherish the Season in Real Red on Whisper White and cut it with a Tasteful Labels die.

Using the bundled Sounds of the Season dies – I cut two medium sized bells – these dies emboss while they cut! – from some copper Brushed Metallic Card stock.  I also cut some Shaded Spruce pine boughs.

And…of course!…I called on the Poinsettia Dies to cut a couple of Real Red berries.

I used a couple of Glue Dots to adhere a Gold Hoop Embellishment to the card front – they’re hidden under the sentiment.

Then I built the collage – using Liquid Glue to adhere all the pieces and parts.

I tied a big-loop bow with the Gold Trim and adhered it with a Glue Dot.

Finally – I adhered the sentiment on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card front was done.

For the inside, I stamped a second Cherish the Season sentiment in Real Red on a Whisper White panel.  Over the top, in stamped-off-twice Shaded Spruce, I stamped the pine bough image.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Real Red mat and then into the card base and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got the Cherish the Season pine bough on the front in Shaded Spruce…

…and more of the Classic Christmas 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  How fun is this fold? Probably why it’s called a….you know.  And I love the pretty images in Cherish the Season, with the Sounds of the Season Dies bundled in – those dies add such pretty embossing as they cut the bells!!

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…take a look at what the rest of the team has to offer!  Then pull out your ink and papers and have a little fun challenge! 🙂
