2021 Jan – Jun Mini Catalog

Stampin’ Up! Succulent Queen Ann’s Lace & Dragonflies with Video Tutorial

Good morning! And happy Sunday!  I hope you’re having a great weekend – maybe warming up a bit?  We had a gorgeous day yesterday and spent much of it getting mulch from the landfill (I know – it’s a glamorous life we lead – don’t be envious!) and getting our two new beds in place.  Today I think we have to hit Sam’s to see if we can exchange our mixed-gender Martha Washington asparagus for more all-boy-all-the-time Jersey Giants.  See?  Glamour glamour! 😉

If you were able to spend some of your weekend with me on my Facebook Live video last night, I appreciate it!  If not, here’s the replay on YouTube!

This card features a pretty mix of tools – the Potted Succulent die cut and Dragonflies Punch from the Jan-Jun 2021 Mini Catalog as well as the sweet Queen Anne’s Lace stamp set from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.  It’s perfect to send to a friend going thru any sort of tough time – take a look-see:

I played with the Global Design Project CASE The Designer challenge – pulling florals and texture and the polka dots on the card base – from the inspiration project.

My focal color – Mossy Meadow – is my answer to the As You See It challenge!!

And – the remainder of the color palette is from the Fab Friday challenge1

To begin, I placed the polka dot mask from the Basic Pattern Decorative Masks over the front of my Mossy Meadow card base.  Using a Blending Brush, I added Mossy Meadow dots around the edges of the card.

Next, I adhered a piece of Mossy Meadow cardstock to a piece of Adhesive Sheet and ran it thru the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine with the pretty background die from the Potted Succulents Die set in place.  I removed the backing of the adhesive sheet and adhered the die cut to another piece of Mossy Meadow – then I trimmed it down to size with my Paper Trimmer.

I matted the panel on Mint Macaron to create the card front.  Then I wrapped some Linen Thread around the panel twice, tying a bow on the left side.

On a small piece of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the main floral image from the Queen Anne’s Lace stamp set in Mossy Meadow.  I added the fill for the flower tops in stamped-off-once Mint Macaron.

Underneath, I stamped the Queen Anne’s Lace sentiment in Calypso Coral.  Then I matted the panel on Mint Macaron and popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I punched three little dragonflies, using the aptly-names Dragonflies Punch, from Highland Heather and Vellum cardstocks.  Using my Fine Tip Glue Pen, I adhered the vellum punches to the Highland Heather punches.  When dry, I curled them with my Bone Folder, then brushed the wings with my Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush.  When it was dry, I ran the little guys thru the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine tucked in my Tasteful Textiles 3D Embossing Folder.

Finally – I added them to the card front with Liquid Glue and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped a second sentiment from Queen Anne’s Lace in Calypso Coral on a Basic White panel.  In the corner, I added the floral again in Mossy Meadow and stamped-off-once Mint Macaron.

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 more of the Queen Anne’s Lace floral on the front…

…and some little more masked and blended Mossy Meadow polka dots on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I have to thank Brian King for the idea for the tone-on-tone with the Potted Succulent die cut – it’s really stunning – and using the Adhesive Sheets made it so easy!  Queen Anne’s Lace is one of those little flyover stamp sets in the big catalog – but it’s one that has such a sweet floral image and really perfect sentiments. The gorgeous die in the Potted Succulents die set makes such a statement, doesn’t it?  And – not for nuthin’ – you can get the Simply Succulents bundle – save 10%! – AND be all ready for the March Online Tutorial when you place your order in March! What a totally subtle hint THAT was!  😉

I hope you like!

Y’all – don’t miss out on the last day of Sale-A-Bration, okay?  That’s right – THIS IS IT!! 🙂

Don’t really think I WANT to know what he’s thinking about.

Of course, he might not be THINKING anything at all.

Maybe he’s just sorta zoning out and his chin is heavy.

It happens.

So – the other day I headed back to the bedroom for something and discovered…

Y’all – it was like…2 in the afternoon!

A bit concerned that he didn’t feel okay I went to inspect his eyeballs.

Those eyes say….Mom.  For goodness sake.  Can’t a guy even cop a nap in the middle of the day without having his picture taken?

More proof that he really likes his bedroom – and the cushy orthopedic “mattress” doesn’t hurt!

Rest assured – when I headed back to the kitchen and inquired as to whether he might be interested in a cookie….

His response made it VERY clear that he was feeling just fine! 😉

Stampin’ Up! Brilliant Wings and a Welcoming Window Fun Fold with Video Tutorial

Good morning and happy Friday!  Sale-A-Bration is SOOO close to being over!  If there are still some of the free goodies you’re wanting – now’s the time!  And – if you’ve given any thought at all to joining the SU! team – THIS is an awesome time to do it!  The wonderful Starter Kit PLUS 200 FREE sheets of brand new Designer Series Paper!  Check out all the benefits of joining right here – then give me a holler and let’s get you hooked up! 🙂

I’ve also got my Butterfly Bouquet Special Bundle – with some add-ons! – available for you to order.  Check it out down below! 🙂

On to the business at hand! If you were able to join me for my YouTube live yesterday, I appreciate you spending part of your day with me.  If not, here’s the replay!

I made an “impossible” card for you on this one – yep, it’s literally called an Impossible Fold.  But it’s totally possible! 🙂  My friend and teammate, Terry Lynn Bright, made one the other day and shared it on her site – and made me remember how much I like this fold!  For this particular one, I took the opportunity to showcase some new Butterfly Bijou 6″ x 6″ DSP and the stunning Brilliant Wings dies – both coming next week (and available to order with me right now in a money-saving bundle!).  Welcoming Windows provided a sentiment and some pretty florals.  Take a look-see:

The color palette is from the Color Throwdown challenge this week!

I started with a piece of Calypso Coral paper from the Butterfly Bijou DSP pack and adhered it to a Blushing Bride base with Liquid Glue.  That’s the base of the card right there!

Next, I made the Impossible Fold from a 4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of Bermuda Bay cardstock (I used Misty Moonlight in the video!).  I scored it and cut as shown on the video and this template…

By holding the left side of the cut cardstock and “twisting” the right side, I created the actual fold.  It’s easier to see what the heck I’m talking about on the video! 🙂

Using my Stampin’ Trimmer again, I cut two 2 1/2″ x 3 7/8″ pieces of non-directional (meaning it doesn’t matter how to use them – there’s no right-side-up or down – which means both these cuts are identical) Butterfly Bijou DSP according to this template.

 

I adhered my L-shaped pieces to the card front with Liquid Glue.

The sentiment, from the Welcoming Window stamp set, is stamped in Magenta Madness on the right side of a piece of Basic White cardstock.  Then I added the little fluer-de-do corner in Bermuda Bay.  I adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I used a Magenta Madness and Blushing Bride butterfly cut from a piece of Butterfly Bijou 6″ x 6″ DSP with the large die in the Brilliant Wings die set.  It’s adhered to the sentiment panel with Liquid Glue.  Tip – be sure that it’s high enough that the bottom of the wing doesn’t interfere with the pop-up sentiment panel.

I cut a Vellum cardstock butterfly with one of the detailed dies in Brilliant Wings and adhered it with my Fine Tip Glue Pen.

Finally – I colored two Pearl Basic Jewels with my Dark Bermuda Bay Stampin’ Blend and added them to the sentiment panel.

On the back, I stamped the vase from Welcoming Window in Calypso Coral on a Basic White panel.  Then I added the leaves image in Bermuda Bay and the flowers in Magenta Madness.  The fleur-de-doo corner is there in Bermuda Bay.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Bermuda Bay mat and onto the back of the card base and the card was done.

My Basic White Medium Envelope got the Welcoming Window floral arrangement and the fleur-de-do on the front…

…and more of the Butterfly Bijou 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  How fun is this fold?!?  It looks – literally! – impossible, but…now you know that it is not!  The new Butterfly Bouquet with it’s wunnermus Brilliant Wings die set is a perfect choice – and will let you do all sorts of color combinations!  In the video – I replaced Bermuda Bay with Misty Moonlight…

Cool, cool paper, y’all!  And the fact that the dies cut the butterflies right from the DSP is…amazeballs!!

I also love the sweet florals and sentiments in the Welcoming Window stamp set, don’t you??

I hope you like!!

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

My lap is a pretty popular spot in the evening.

Katy wants on – Finn wants on….

Sometimes Katy lets Finn sit right by her so she can rub her face on his face.  Sometimes he licks her ear.

Other times – they just agree to not even look at each other, and just watch a little television.

Family life!

Stampin’ Up! Paper In Blooms Fun Fold 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 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 decided to play with the In Bloom Bundle and the coordinating Paper Blooms DSP (this is from the Sale-A-Bration catalog and is FREE with a $50 purchase – but ONLY thru 28 Feb when SAB ends!) to create a super easy fun-fold.  Take a look-see:

And – the fun fold wasn’t an accident! 😉

I also played along with the TGIF challenge this week!

And I played along with the Tic-Tac-Toe challenge, too! I went across the middle!

This is a super easy fun fold – which is why I love it!

I started with a striped piece of Paper Blooms DSP that I matted on Petal Pink cardstock, then adhered to a piece of Night of Navy – so the card front and card base was all done! 🙂

I cut a smaller piece of Night of Navy to make the little front card.

I matted another design of Paper Blooms DSP to a Petal Pink mat and adhered it to the front of the small card.  Then I adhered the card to the center of my cardbase with Liquid Glue.

Next, I used the dies in the bundled Pierced Blooms Die set to cut a couple of flowers from one of the Paper Blooms DSP papers.

I also used the dies – there are a LOT of them and they’re all super fun! – to cut some Petal Pink, Seaside Spray and Night of Navy flowers and leaves.

On a piece of Basic White, I stamped the sentiment from In Bloom in Night of Navy and cut it with the label die in Pierced Blooms.

I started adhering flowers and leaves – starting at the right side of the card front – with Liquid Glue.  Then I added the sentiment.  More leaves and flowers followed on the other side.  I used some Stampin’ Dimensionals as needed to support petals and leaves.  The little striped flower on top is also popped up with Dimensionals.

I added some Night of Navy gems from the Holiday Rhinestones and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a sentiment from Oval Occasions in Night of Navy to a Basic White panel.  In the corner, I added flowers from In Bloom in Petal Pink, Night of Navy and Seaside Spray.  Then I added a few Night of Navy Holiday Rhinestones in the middle of a couple three flowers.

I matted the panel on Petal Pink and then adhered it inside the card with Liquid Glue and my fun-fold was done!

My Basic White Medium Envelope got more In Bloom flowers on the front….

…and a little more Paper Blooms DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  See why I love this fun-fold?  So quick and easy but just enough “different” to get your recipient’s attention!  The In Bloom set – with its bundled Pierced Blooms Dies – is a perfect accompaniment to the pretty Paper Blooms DSP (how cool is it that the dies cut some of the flowers from the DSP!?).

Et Voila!  If you’d like to recreate this card, all the products and card cuts are listed below!  And…be sure to snag some of this Paper Blooms DSP, okay?  It’s gone when Sale-A-Bration ends on the 28th!

Now that you’ve seen my card, take a minute to hop thru all our projects today.  If you click on the Next Blog button, you’ll go right to Jaimie’s page. And you can just click on the names below to go direct to all the blogs!

Stampin’ Up! Vine Design Heal Your Heart Pet Sympathy Card

Happy Tuesday, y’all!  We’ve had a spring snap (not trying to rub it in to my friends who are still cold and snowy!) and so it’s hard to stay inside and work!  I even planted seeds inside to get them started.  Too early?  Well…maybe.  But…couldn’t even resist!

My card today is one I did while we were chatting on my Zoom the Craftroom yesterday (I hope you’ll join us one day if you’re one of my customers who’ve ordered this month!! – and…it was nice to get a little feedback from my friends!).  This is a pet sympathy card – nope – do not even need one right now (wheeew!) but it’s good to have one on hand, right?  I used the pretty Vine Design Bundle, the Cat Punch and…the Heal Your Heart stamp set (free for a few more days until Sale-a-Bration ends on the 28th!!).  All set atop some pretty Love You Always Specialty DSP.  Take a look-see:

The color palette for this one is from the Inspire. Create Challenge this week.

And – The Paper Players challenge is a pretty obvious influence!  I think it’s pretty clean and simple.  😉

I started by adhering a piece of the Sahara Sand paper from Love You Always Specialty DSP to a Rococo Rose mat with Liquid Glue for the card front.  Then I matted a smaller piece and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I stuck a piece of Sahara Sand cardstock to a piece of Foam Adhesive Sheet.  Then I cut it with the detailed rectangle die in the Flowering Vine Die set.  I peeled the backing off and adhered it to the middle of the card.

I punched a black cat with the Cat Punch (sorry – Department of Redundancy Department! 😳) and adhered it with Liquid Glue.

On a piece of Blushing Bride, I stamped the sentiment outline from Vine Design in Blushing Bride ink.  I added a sentiment from the same set in Tuxedo Black and cut it with the matching die in the Flowering Vine set.  Then, I adhered it with Liquid Glue.

I added a couple of Pastel Pearls and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a sentiment – one of my favorites! – from Heal Your Heart in Tuxedo Black to a Basic White panel.  In the corners, I added the vine from Vine Design in Sahara Sand ink.

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

My Basic White Medium Envelope got the Vine Design image in Sahara Sand on the front…

… and more of the Love You Always Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I really love the tone-on-tone that I got with the Flowering Vine die cut in Sahara Sand cardstock on the foil-embossed Love You Always Specialty Paper, don’t you?  And Vine Design has several handy sentiments that fit perfectly in label die cut!  Heal Your Heart – what can I say?  It’s free with a $50 purchase for another couple of days.  And it’s filled with perfect sentiments!

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

It’s getting to be time to start seeds inside – the days are getting longer and the spring weather is sneaking in every couple days.

I found an extra starting tray in the barn, so I brought it back to the house.

Decided to have Finn do a little work!

He may or may not have stopped to have a little gnaw on the corner… 🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️

Stampin’ Up! Dragonfly Garden Dandy Laser Cut Thanks

Good morning and happy Monday!  We had a gorgeous couple of days here in north Georgia and have heard that the country is thinking about warming up so that’s all good.  We even washed the van yesterday (along with 100 of our closest friends!) 😉

My card today is a reach-back to the awesome Dragonfly Garden bundle and pretty Dandy Garden DSP.  This time, I also used a cool die cut panel from the Dandy Laser Cut Paper.  Take a look-see:

This layout was inspired by the challenge at Freshly Made Sketches this week.

I started by matting a piece of Misty Moonlight Dandy Garden 6″ x 6″ DSP on a Bumble Bee mat with Liquid Glue for the card front.

Next, I cut a narrower piece – with the design going 90 degrees to the card front – and adhered it to a Bumble Bee mat of its own.  I set these in place on the card front – no adhesive just yet.

I selected a panel from the Dandy Laser Cut Paper and positioned it where I wanted it on the card front.

Using the narrow matted strip as a guide – I put sticky notes in place to create a mask.

Once the mask was secure, I picked it – and the laser cut panel – up and removed it from the card front.

Then, using a Blending Brush, I colored between the mats with Bumble Bee ink.

I adhered the narrow strip to the card front with Liquid Glue, then popped the laser cut panel in place with small pieces of Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Hint:  this part is a bit persnickety, not gonna fib ya.  So…take your time – and then be sure that you line up the colored section of the panel with the DSP strip.

I cut a piece of Blackberry Bliss paper from the Dandy Garden 6″ x 6″ DSP with the largest circle Stitched Shapes die and used Liquid Glue to adhere it to the card front.

On a piece of Basic White, I stamped the Dragonfly Garden sentiment in Blackberry Bliss and punched it with the Tailored Tag Punch – then adhered it with Liquid Glue.

The dragonfly is cut using the Dragonflies Punch (bundled with Dragonfly Garden) from one of the designs in the Dandy Garden 6″ x 6″ DSP.  I adhered it with Liquid Glue.

I colored an Opal Round with my Dark Misty Moonlight Stampin’ Blend, adhered it to the sentiment and the card front was done.

On the inside, I added the wildflower image from Dragonfly Garden in Bumble Bee on a Basic White panel.  Then I added some little dragonflies in Misty Moonlight.

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

My Basic White Medium Envelope got more from Dragonfly Garden sweetness on the front…

…and another piece of Dandy Garden 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  The Dragonfly Garden stamp set and bundled Dragonflies Punch will live on my favorites list for a long time – how about you?  It’s just wonderful and is so pretty when combined with the two coordinating papers…Dandy Garden 6″ x 6″ DSP and Dandy Laser Cut Paper!

I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Touch of Ink Happy Thoughts Fun Fold with Video Tutorial

Good morning! And happy Sunday!  I hope you’re having a great weekend – maybe warming up a bit?  We had a gorgeous day yesterday and it’s looking to be the same today.  Chilly, yes – but bright and beautiful!

If you were able to spend some of your weekend with me on my Facebook Live video last night, I appreciate it!  If not, here’s the replay on YouTube!

I was playing with some of the sweet FREE goodies from the 2021 Sale-A-Bration catalog…Touch of Ink (a $100-level freebie) and one of my favorite papers – the Flower & Field DSP (a $50-level choice) and decided to make a fun fold that one of my team members had shared.  He saw it on Connie Stewart’s video and I just went for it!  I added a perfect sentiment from the Happy Thoughts stamp set, too.  Take a look-see:

I decided that a butterfly is an animal….ish…so,  played along with the theme challenge at the Global Design Project!

I created the pop-up fun-fold part of the card using Flirty Flamingo card stock.  It’s a piece cut to 5 1/4″ x 11″ scored at 1 3/4″, 3 1/2″, 5 1/4″ and 7″.  Then I cut between the 3 1/2″ and 5 1/4″ scores – at 1 1/4″ from the top and bottom of the cardstock.

I folded the card at the score lines to create the pop up and a back panel.  The back panel is adhered to a Basic Black mat.

I cut some panels of Flower & Field DSP and adhered them to the Flirty Flamingo base with Liquid Glue.  There’s a smaller – different pattern – piece, matted on Basic Black and then adhered  to the inside small panel.

For the sentiment, I stamped the Touch of Ink sentiment in Flirty Flamingo on a square piece of Basic White cardstock.  In the corner, I stamped the butterfly from Touch of Ink in Smoky Slate and added the wing-fill image in Balmy Blue.  I adhered the panel to a Basic Black mat and then to the pop-up portion of the card base.

I scored and folded a 5″ x 7 1/2″ piece of Basic White at 3 3/4″.  Centered on the front, I stamped a sentiment from Happy Thoughts in Flirty Flamingo.  Hint – you want this to be covered when the card is closed, so…be sure to stamp accordingly!

I flipped the card inside-out so that I could stamp the butterfly from Touch of Ink in the top left corner.  Then I added the flower image in Smoky Slate  – with Flirty Flamingo “fill”.

I adhered the back of the card to a Basic Black mat with Liquid Glue – then adhered it all to another Basic Black “card base”.

On the front of the white card, I added two strips of Basic Black-matted Flower & Field DSP with Liquid Glue.

I punched some flowers from Flower & Field DSP with the Small Bloom Punch – added Smoky Slate middles with an eraser (check the video to see how!) and then adhered them with Liquid Glue.  An Opal Round in the middle of each flower….and the card was done!

My Basic White Medium Envelope got the Touch of Ink flower on the front…

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

Et Voila!  I can’t tell you how much I love this fold (thanks, Darryl and Connie!) – it really lets gorgeous paper like the Flower & Field DSP shine!  Touch of Ink and Happy Thoughts are perfect together and with this paper, don’t you think??

I hope you like!

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

Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Bouquet Tranquil Thoughts 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 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 had a hankering to play with the soon-to-be-available Butterfly Bouquet bundle and gorgeous Butterfly Bijou 6″ x 6″ DSP (coming to you on 2 March!), so that’s what I reached for.  I added a couple sentiments from Tranquil Thoughts and some leaves using its bundled Tranquil Dies (all available now).  Take a look-see:

And here’s our sketch!

I started with a dreamy watercolor panel from Butterfly Bijou DSP and cut it for the card front.  It’s a little smaller on the short-side than usual – 3 3/4″ versus 3 7/8″.  You’ll see why in a sec.

I used the next to largest rectangle Stitched With Whimsy die to add some decorative stitching around the edges then cut the panel at 1 1/2″ along the short side.

Using Liquid Glue, I adhered the two pieces of the panel to a Basic Black mat – leaving a gap between them (that’s why I made it a little smaller than usual!).

I stamped a sentiment from the Tranquil Thoughts stamp set in Just Jade on a piece of Basic White, then cut it with the next-to-largest oval in the Stitched Shapes Die set.

On the scrap of Butterfly Bijou left after cutting my card front, I stamped some leaves from Tranquil Thoughts in Just Jade and cut them with their dies in the bundled Tranquil Dies set.

I used the big die in the Brilliant Wings Die set to cut butterflies from one of the Butterfly Bijou DSP designs.  I have to say – it’s so SO cool to make one pass with the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine and get a whole fluttering of multi-colored beauties!!

I adhered the leaves I’d cut to the card front with Liquid Glue, then popped the sentiment oval over top with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere my die cut butterflies – and then stuck some dimensionals under a few wings here and there to help them “keep flying”.  🙂

Using my Dark Misty Moonlight Stampin’ Blend, I colored several white Resin Hearts and adhered them around the collage.  And…the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped a second sentiment from Tranquil Thoughts in Just Jade on a Basic White panel.  In the corner, I stamped the larger leaf twice in Just Jade and the smaller leaf a couple times in stamped-off-once Just Jade.  Then I added some Misty Moonlight-colored Resin Hearts.

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

My Basic White Medium Envelope got more Tranquil Thoughts leaves in Just Jade on the front…

…and more of the Butterfly Bijou 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  You guys!  I am SO loving this Butterfly Brilliance stamp set and bundled Brilliant Wings Dies – and can hardly wait for you to get your hands on it!!  Of course, since it’s an image only set, you’re going to need a good sentiment or two and the Tranquil Thoughts set comes thru perfectly.  And even brings some Tranquil Dies leaves to the party!

I hope you like (and are making plans to add these to your stash!).

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

Stampin’ Up! Many Messages and Lots of Heart Card

Good morning, y’all!  Are you hunkering down under the weight of snow and ice and bitter cold??  If so, I hope you’ve got power and water and heat.  And chocolate – chocolate is a pretty awesome winter-storm-survival food.

Yesterday, while a few of us were chatting and crafting on my Monday Zoom the Craftroom, I put together a pretty non-Mary kind of card.  In that…it’s not got a ton of layers.  And not a bow in sight!  But…I like how it turned out – and I think it would be a great card for a man!  It used a sentiment from my handy Many Messages bundle and a few Lots of Heart bundle hearts.  Take a look-see:

The layout and elements were inspired by the FUSION challenge this week.  The sketch side and, to some extent, the photo side! 🙂

I started with some light wood paper from the In Good Taste DSP and matted it on Mossy Meadow for the card front.

I took a second piece of the In Good Taste and made a banner with it using my Banner Triple Punch.

Using two of the heart dies in the Many Hearts die set (bundled with Lots of Heart), I cut a Mossy Meadow and a Gray Granite heart.  This pattern is one of the new 2021-2022 Neutrals 6″ x 6″ DSP pack – and you can get it for FREE when you join Stampin’ Up! before the end of Sale-A-Bration on 28 Feb.  And it’ll bring 160 of its friends (translation: you’ll get 200 SHEETS of new-design DSP!!).

I adhered the two hearts to the card front with Liquid Glue.

For the sentiment, I used the Many Messages stamp to stamp all those wonderful sentiments in Bumble Bee on Basic White and then cut them with the single big die in the bundled Messages Die.  Full disclosure:  I had this sentiment – and a bunch of others! – in my little tackle box from stamping and cutting them for a previous card!

I popped my sentiment onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals, added a Bumble Bee 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dot, and the card front was done.

Yep – done.  Set.  The.  Card.  Front.  Down!

On the inside, I inked the plaid heart from Lots of Heart in Mossy Meadow and stamped it in the corner of a Basic White panel.  I added a sentiment from Lots of Heart in Bumble Bee.  And another Bumble Bee enamel dot, too!

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

My Basic White Medium Envelope got the plaid Lots of Heart heart on the front in Mossy Meadow…

…and more of the In Good Taste DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Simple.  Hardly any layers (easy to mail – you’re welcome!).  Not my normal card style by any stretch.  But…I really like how it turned out!  The two sets – Lots of Heart and Many Messages go together perfectly, don’t you think??

And don’t forget – there’s only 12 days left in Sale-A-Bration!  Which means…in THIRTEEN days….no more free 200 sheets of new DSP (that’s a $59 value – on top of the awesome Starter Kit goodness!) for joining the team!  Be sure to pull the trigger and get in on the great deal before it’s gone.  I’d love to have you on my team! 🙂

As long as you wash your hands really REALLY good (he’s singing the happy birthday song…twice…in his head!)….

Then you can sort of….ease….your social-distance a bit.
