2021 Jan – Jun Mini Catalog

Stampin’ Up! True Love Pansy Petals Sneak Peek

Good morning and welcome to the week!  Guess what happens one week from today?  That’s 3 May.  Does that date ring a bell??  Yep – you got it.  That’s the last day you’ll be able to order from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog!  So…if there are things you’re wanting – you might want to get busy!

Of course, that means that the day AFTER one week from today….the brand new and amazing 2021-2022 Annual Catalog with be live!  Whoo-hoo!  THAT is the day I’ll be ordering all our share goodies to divide AND all your Special Bundles!  You’ve still got time to get in on both great deals, so…. 😉

My card today features a little already-available and a little coming-next week!  True Love DSP (available right now) sets the stage for Pansy Petals DSP flowers and sweet Pansy Patch sentiments (coming next week)!  Take a look-see:

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

And the color palette is from the Color Throwdown challenge.

I started with a piece of the True Love DSP and, using a Blending Brush, colored the panel with Crumb Cake ink.  Then I matted it on Poppy Parade for the card front.

I found two likely designs from the new Pansy Petals DSP and cut a Stitched Rectangle die cut from each one.  These are adhered to the front of the card with Liquid Glue.

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

Using the large and small outline die in the Pansy Die Set, I cut three pansies from the Pansy Petal DSP.  I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere one of the larger flowers over the hoop.

I tied a double-loop Linen Thread bow and added it with a Glue Dot.  Then I used double-stacked Dimensionals to add the second large flower.  The final – smallest – flower is adhered with a single Dimensional and a little Liquid Glue.

I stamped the Pansy Patch sentiment in Poppy Parade on a Basic White strip – snipped banner ends and then used a Dimensional under the right side of the strip and Liquid Glue on the left – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a second Pansy Patch sentiment in Poppy Parade on a Basic White panel.  I also used the smaller flower images with Bumble Bee and Pale Papapa ink to add some pansies here and there.  I added some flower centers in Tuxedo Black (there’s a tiny little stamp for that in the set!).

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

My Basic White Medium Envelope got more Pansy Patch flowers on the front…

…and more of the Pansy Petals DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  That True Love DSP is so cool – I love that you can coordinate it with ANY color just using a Blending Brush and some ink – or Stampin’ Blends or Watercolor Pencils!  And the Pansy Petals set is…amazing!  The gorgeous Pansy Patch flowers and sentiments, perfectly coordinated with the Pansy Dies (which cut flowers right from the Pansy Petals DSP – whoohooo!).

I hope you like! And – don’t forget – the Pansy Patch Bundle and Pansy Petals DSP are just a part of my Special Bundle #3: Let’s Get Floral Bundle.  There are a LOT of other flowery wonders to be found in that one – so be sure to check it out and get your order in!

So – we had a little wind overnight on Saturday.  Had a few trees down when we went out on Sunday morning.

Like…this one across the driveway!


So – Wayne pulled out the chainsaw and the heavy equipment to make it so we could leave if we wanted to.

Well – that set off a firestorm of tree felling and cutting!

Thought you might enjoy seeing my lumberjack at work – TODAY is his birthday!!   😉

Stampin’ Up! Friends Are Like Seaside Seashells Birthday

Good morning and welcome to the week.  Also? It’s now officially less than a month before we wing our way to the Aloha State!  Yeah!  And – we found out some good news – there is a Costco on BOTH Maui AND Kauai!!  Which means…my happy place is IN paradise!  It’s like…Happy-Place-SQUARED!!  And we can get food for meals and snacks, too!  Whoo-hooo!!

I’ve got a card that harkens to the sea today (THAT was poetic, huh!?) using the pretty Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set, a little faux stitching from the Stitched With Whimsy dies, and…some pretty Seaside Shells stickers! 😉  Take a look-see:

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

And, although I didn’t go as bright as the colors in the challenge picture, my color palette is from the Color Throwdown challenge.

I started with a Basic White panel that I die cut/embossed with the Stitched With Whimsy next-to-largest die.  Then I matted the panel on Soft Sea Foam for the card front.

I stamped a Friends Are Like Seashells sentiment in Soft Sea Foam near the bottom of the panel.

I de-sticky-fied some of the Seaside Shells stickers (remember – you can use your Embossing Buddy, or your arm or clothes – just tap the sticker on your chosen surface to dull the sticky!) – and popped them onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a second Friends Are Like Seashells sentiment in Soft Sea Foam.  Then I added a So Saffron starfish and a Seaside Spray sand dollar next to it.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Soft Sea Foam mat and into my So Saffron cardbase, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Basic White Medium Envelope got more Friends Are Like Seashells shells on the front…

…and some Sand & Sea DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Simple.  Easy.  Pretty!  I like it!  Friends Are Like Seashells is part of an amazing bundle that includes the wunnermus Seaside Seashells Dies (these are the ones that coordinate with the Seashells 3D Embossing Folder!  It’s all in the Jan – Jun 2021 Mini Catalog and you can still get your hands on all of it!

I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Flowering Cactus Life Can Be Prickly!

Good morning, y’all and happy Tuesday!  Hope your week is proceeding apace to the weekend.

Now – let me say, to start out….I hadn’t intended to use the Flowering Cactus Medley two days in a row.

I really hadn’t.  I even second and third guessed my decision.  But – once the card was in my head – I had to make it.  So…I hope you’ll give me a pass!  Take a look-see:

The layout is from the FUSION challenge this week – obviously I used the sketch side!

My friend and teammate, Pam Kean, had sent me a card a while back and I loved it!

On Monday, my eye fell on it again and my brain said…make THAT – but with a cactus.  So – I did!

I started with a piece of Basic White that I embossed in the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder.

Next up, I cut a pretty piece of Flowering Cactus DSP (included in the Medley) using a Stitched So Sweetly rectangle die.

I adhered the die cut to the white panel with Liquid Glue, trimmed the excess with my Paper Trimmer and matted the whole thing on Mint Macaron for the card front.

I used a Stitched Shapes square to cut a Calypso Coral square – then used a Layering Squares die to cut out the middle to create a frame.  Then I snipped the frame on one edge.

I cut another same-size Stitched Shapes square from Mint Macaron and then “wove” the Calypso Coral frame around it – adhering the snipped ends with a little Liquid Glue.

I cut a smaller Stitched Shapes square from Basic White and adhered it with Liquid Glue.  Then I adhered the whole thing over the Stitched So Sweetly DSP piece with Liquid Glue.

I used a die in the Flowering Cactus Medley to cut one of the Calypso Coral-tinged cacti from the Flowering Cactus DSP and popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a narrow strip of Basic White, I stamped the Flowering Cactus sentiment in Mossy Meadow.  Then I popped it across the bottom of the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I used some Glue Dots to adhere a few of the Calypso Coral felt embellishments and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a second Flowering Cactus sentiment in Mossy Meadow.  Next to it, in stamped-off-once Calypso Coral, I added a pretty double-flower.

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

My Basic White Medium Envelope got the flower image again – but in full strength Calypso Coral – on the front…

…and more of the Flowering Cactus DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  So…can you forgive me??  I really love how this turned out (thanks, Pam, for the inspiration!) and I am really REALLY loving all the pieces and parts that you get when you snap up the Flowering Cactus Medley!!

I hope you like!

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

Just a little look at some “Spring” around the farm!

Really pretty long-view of the pasture with the girls.

A little closer – can’t help it – I love this time of year, here!  Of course, I’m also a little partial to those golden girls in the late afternoon sunshine! 🙂

And…the camera lens filters out the massive clouds of yellow pollen floating all over here and there!

Mornin’, y’all – and happy Monday!  Hope you’ve got a good week ahead of you as we head into Easter weekend!

Now, you guys know that I’m all about clean-and-simple.  The fewer the layers and embellishments – the happier I am!

😳

Bwaahahahahaha!!

No – you know that’s not true!  But, sometimes, I fight my inclination to layer-layer-layer and end up trying a clean-and-simple card.  Like today!  I just got the cool Flowering Cactus Medley and opened it right up.  I used it – and just a couple of additional goodies to make a CAS birthday card.  Take a look-see:

Good morning, y’all!  It’s Thursday – which means it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!!  We’ve got a theme challenge to work with 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!

I saw our theme and my brain went right to the Wrapped Bouquet stamp set and its bundled Wrapped Flowers Dies.  And it seemed like a perfect time to get busy with Mother’s Day cards.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! So Sentimental Butterfly & Wild Roses!

Good morning, y’all and happy HAPPY HAWWWMP Day!!  And…Happy 2020-2021 Annual Catalog Retiring Products List Release Day!

Yep – this afternoon, at 3pm Eastern time, Stampin’ Up! will be releasing the list of all the retiring products in the current Annual Catalog!  I am excited to see what carries over and what will be leaving us.  Y’all check back – watch for a post from me – I’ll get it out to you quick as I can.

You might want to go make a last minute swing thru your stash and see where the gaps are (especially in the 2019-2021 In Colors!) and get them filled right now!!  FYI – those ink pads, refills and Stampin’ Blends are ALREADY showing Low Inventory.  So… get busy! 😳😳😳

My card today uses a bit of a smorgasbord of goodies – anchored by the pretty Wild Roses background stamp.  Then I added a sweet tag (that was my contribution to our last Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Meeting make-and-takes) featuring the Dragonfly Gardens stamp set and Brilliant Wings Dies.  Take a look-see:

I used several elements from this week’s Festive Friday Inspo List! I got butterfly, blue, and ribbon!

I started with the Wild Roses background stamp. Using my Stamparatus, I stamped that image on a Basic White panel in Versamark Ink.  Then I sprinkled Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder all over it and heat set it with my Heat Tool.

Using Blending Brushes, I first blended Mango Melody all over the panel – then added Melon Mambo to the edges.  I wiped off all the excess ink from the embossed portions – and ended up with an emboss-resist panel that I think is gorgeous!! 🙂

I matted my pretty panel on a piece of Melon Mambo cardstock for the card front.

The tag is a 2″ wide piece of Basic White, punched at the top with my Scalloped Tag Topper Punch.  I curved the bottom corners using the Detailed Trio Punch.

I stamped a So Sentimental sentiment in Misty Moonlight near the bottom.  Over that I stamped the wildflower image from Dragonfly Gardens in stamped off once Just Jade ink.

I made a second tag from Shaded Spruce and adhered the two tags together with Liquid Glue.

Thru the top of the white tag, I looped some Just Jade 2020-2022 In Color Ribbon and tied it together with Linen Thread.

My butterfly is cut from the (now retired – sorry! You could easily stamp the Butterfly Brilliance butterflies in Misty Moonlight and cut them out) Butterfly Bijou 6″ x 6″ DSP using the Brilliant Wings die.  I also cut the detailed butterfly from Vellum cardstock – and adhered it to the DSP butterfly with Liquid Glue.

I adhered the butterfly to the tag with Liquid Glue – and adhered it all to the card front with Liquid Glue.  Finally, I added some silver Metallic Pearls to the butterfly and the tag – and the card front was done.

On the inside, I added a second So Sentimental sentiment in Misty Moonlight to a Basic White panel – then added a Butterfly Brilliance butterfly over top in stamped-off-once Just Jade.  I added another silver Metallic Pearl.

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

My Basic White Medium Envelope got some Butterfly Brilliance butterflies on the front in Just Jade…

…and I stamped another butterfly in Misty Moonlight onto the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Yes – there’s a lot of stamp sets and tools used here – but…I think everyone needs So Sentimental in their tool box, anyway!  And the Butterfly Brilliance bundle – available now AND in the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog – is going to be a heavy favorite, I am sure.  Wild Roses is…stunning!  Especially in emboss-resist!!

I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Dragonfly Dandy Garden Memories

Happy Tuesday!  Tuesday is sort of a flyover day, right?  Neither the start of the workweek (bleh) – not HAWWWWMP DAY, Mike – and for sure not the END of the workweek (whoo-hoo!) – it’s just sort of a…filler.  It’s cousin, Thursday, has similar identity issues, right?

Today is, however, National Puppy Day!  So…it’s got that going for it!! 😉

My card today has nothing to do with Tuesday – or puppies, for that matter – it’s just a quick and easy card using the truly cool Dandy Garden Memories & More Card Pack, with a matching Dandy Garden Envelope and…a little help from the coordinating Dragonfly Garden Bundle.  Take a look-see:

Thanks to the amazing Dandy Garden Memories & More Card Pack, this one is super easy!

I pulled one of the large cards from the pack and trimmed it down a smidge to accomodate a Bumble Bee mat for the card front.

I wrapped some Mossy Meadow 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim twice around the matted panel – securing it in the back with Glue Dots.

On a piece of Basic White, I stamped the Dragonfly Garden sentiment in Blackberry Bliss and cut it with a Tasteful Labels die.  I used the same die to cut a Bumblebee mat, then used Liquid Glue to adhere the two die cuts together.

I popped the matted sentiment over the top of the braided trim with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Then I tied a simple bow from the Mossy Meadow trim and adhered it with a Glue Dot.

I punched some tiny Blackberry Bliss dragonflies using the Dragonflies Punch (bundled with the Dragonfly Garden set) and adhered them with Liquid Glue – and that was it for the card front!

On the inside, I stamped a second Dragonfly Garden sentiment in Blackberry Bliss on a Basic White panel and added some of the pretty wildflowers in Bumble Bee.

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

I did absolutely nothing to the already-perfectly-decorated Dandy Garden Memories & More Cards & Envelopes envelope!

Et Voila!  It took me a while to warm up to Memories & More Card Packs (I thought they were ONLY good for scrapbooking – but I was totally wrong!) but…this Dandy Garden Memories & More Card Pack is gorgeous!  And has SO many cool elements that you can use and use and use to create your card projects.  Or…even scrapbook pages!! 😉  And the Dragonfly Garden Bundle – well – it’s for sure one I hope makes it into the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog!!

I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Well Written Butterfly Brilliant Wings

My card today is a fun one – it’s got gorgeous Rainbow Glimmer Paper making a showing as….Brilliant Wings butterflies!  And take a look-see at what happens when you add them to a little black-and-white True Love DSP and give them a Well Written die cut sentiment.
