Anniversary

Stampin’ Up! Always in My Lots of Heart Anniversary Card

Happy Happy Hawwmp day, y’all!  We’re having a Spring-snap, which makes me want to plant seeds and be in the garden!  We’re planning a new perennial (asparagus and strawberries) bed so we’ve got to get started on that sooner than later.  And the weather outside is not-at-all frightful, in fact it’s just delightful!  So…perhaps we’ll make some headway on that today!

My card for today is a pretty little number from the Always in My Heart and Lots of Heart Bundles.  It’s a perfect anniversary card!  Take a look-see:

The layout and some of the elements of this card were inspired by the challenge over at Inspired By.

And the color palette is from the TGIF Challenge this week.

And all of it came together perfectly to work for The Paper Players theme challenge!

I started with some Smoky Slate paper from the Neutrals 6″ x 6″ DSP and matted it on Petal Pink cardstock for the card front.

Using Stampin Seal, I adhered some Petal Pink 5/8″ Organdy Striped Ribbon in three loops.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere a Vellum Square Doily (I turned it up so it was a diamond, not a square!).

Using the large die in the Many Hearts Dies set, I cut a large white heart and adhered it over the top of the ribbon with Liquid Glue.

Using my Stamparatus, I stamped the plaid heart from Lots of Heart in Real Red on a piece of Smoky Slate – then I cut it out with another die in the Many Hearts Dies.

 

I adhered the plaid heart with Liquid Glue.

Using the large die in the Floral Heart Dies, I cut a Basic White heart.  I set the outer floral cut aside for another card and popped the center heart cut-out onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On another piece of Basic White, I stamped the Always in My Heart sentiment in Real Red.  Then I cut it with the cool banner die in the Floral Heart Die set.  I folded the ends using the score lines that the die put in for me and then used Liquid Glue on the ends to adhere it.  I added a single Stampin’ Dimensional under the middle of the banner to support it over the other heart.

I added some Champagne Rhinestone Jewels and the card front was done.

On the inside, I added a second Always in My Heart sentiment in Real Red to a Basic White panel.  Up the  left side, I added the line of hearts using a sweet little image from Always in My Heart.  I stamped it first in Petal Pink and then a second time in Smoky Slate.

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

My Basic White Medium Envelope got the Always in My Heart hearts up the front of the left side…

…and more of the Smoky Slate Neutrals 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  These two bundles – Always in My Heart with the Floral Heart Dies and the Lots of Heart with the Many Hearts Dies – are a perfect complement to each other, don’t you think?  Anniversary, Valentine’s, I-love-you-cuz-it’s-Wednesday.  Make them all!

I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! True Love Always & Forever 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 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!

I had a good time with this color challenge – picking Rococo Rose to pop against the black and white – and True Love DSP was the obvious choice.  I kept with the Love You Always Suite – using both the Forever & Always Bundle and the Always in My Heart stamp set.  Take a look-see:

Here’s our challenge! 🙂

And I also borrowed the sketch from the CAS(E) This Sketch challenge for my layout.

I started with my favorite design in the True Love DSP and matted it on Rococo Rose for the card front.

Using the smaller, straight-edge punch in the Heart Punch Pack, I cut a Rococo Rose heart from Love You Always Specialty DSP.

 

I created the sentiment with the Always Dies (part of the Forever & Always Bundle!)- cutting the detailed word from Love You Always Foil in Rococo Rose, and the solid shape in Basic White.  Then I adhered them together with Liquid Glue.

I stamped the sentiment from Forever & Always in Rococo Rose on a Basic White strip.  Then I matted the strip on Rococo Rose and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue. I added the punched heart with Liquid Glue.

I tied a small bow from two lengths of Whisper White twine from the Snail Mail Twine Combo Pack and adhered it with a Glue Dot.  Then I popped my die cut sentiment on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a few Matte Black Dots and the card front was done.

On the inside, I stamped an Always in My Heart sentiment in Rococo Rose on a Basic White panel.  Next to it, I stamped the hearts outline image from Always in My Heart in Tuxedo Black – then added the fill image in Rococo Rose.

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 Always in My Heart hearts on the front…

…and more of the True Love DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I love Black-White-Pink (aka Rococo Rose), don’t you?  It’s just so cool and elegant.  And the Always & Forever stamp set – with the beautiful bundled Always Dies (how much do you love those sentiment dies?!?) plus the Always in My Heart stamp set…

….are perfect vehicles for bringing that pop of color to the gorgeous True Love DSP.

I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Whale Done Color Blocking with a Video Tutorial!

Happy Friday, y’all!  Been a busy week here, don’t know how it’s been for you.  Our garden picked this week to decide to BURST at the seams!  I had tomatoes and green beans and chile peppers and tomatillos EVERYWHERE.  On every counter surface and in every rinse/drain container I own.  So, yesterday I decided I’d better get them “processed”.   Let me just say – I can wait a long time to peel and roast another tomatillo, y’all!

Except…I won’t be able to wait – cuz those boogers are just tomatillo-ing their little hearts out! I’ll be peeling/roasting/blending again before I know it!

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! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Sunflowers Do a World of Good 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 our colors I knew I was going to be making a sunflower – or two! – using the new Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set and bundled Sunflowers Dies.  And I also figured the World of Good DSP would have some goodness in it, too!  The Many Mates set lent the perfect sentiment.  Take a look-see:

Can you – possibly?!? – guess our colors?? 🙂

I pulled a layout idea from this week’s Sunday Stamps challenge!

And it fits perfectly with the Global Design Project‘s Theme challenge, too. 🙂

I started with a piece of Bumble Bee paper from the wunnermus World of Good DSP pack, that I matted on Old Olive for the card front.

Using a Stitched Rectangle Die – and running it half way thru my die cutting machine then moving the die and going back thru the machine the other direction (to create a longer die cut) – I cut a rectangle of Old Olive.  Then I stamped the piece of card stock with the two leaves images from Celebrate Sunflowers in Old Olive for a tone-on-tone look.

Finally – I embossed the panel in the new Old World Paper 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

On another piece of the same Bumble Bee paper from the World of Good DSP set, I used my Stamparatus to stamp both sunflower images in Early Espresso.  I cut the large flower with the die from the Sunflowers Dies – and fussy cut the small flower.   There IS a die for the smaller flower – but I trimmed off the leaves so…fussy cutting was the way to go!

On Old Olive, I stamped two large leaves and one of the small double-leaf images in Old Olive – then cut them with their matching dies.  I also cut the corresponding detailed leaves from Old Olive.

From Early Espresso – I cut the large detailed flower and two flower centers.

Using Liquid Glue just in the middle – I adhered the detailed flower to the large die cut.  I also adhered the detailed leaves to their solid leaf die cuts.

On yet another piece of the World of Good DSP, I used my Stamparatus to stamp a Many Mates sentiment in Early Espresso.  Then I cut it out with a Stitched Rectangle Die and adhered it to the card front with Black Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I laid everything out – and started assembling!

I cut a smallish Stiched Shapes square from Brass Foil, embossed it in the Old World 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I adhered the large leaves to the card front with Liquid Glue – then added the large flower with more Liquid Glue.  I popped a flower center on this one with a Black Stampin’ Dimensional.

Using Liquid Glue – I adhered the small leaves to the back of the small flowers and the second flower center to the…center! 🤔

Then I used a Glue Dot to wind some gold trim from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack.  I added a bow tied from a piece of 1/4″ Bumble Bee Gingham Ribbon with another Glue Dot.

Finally – I added a couple of Black Stampin’ Dimensionals to the card front – and a Glue Dot to the middle of the gingham bow – and adhered the small flower.  Note: I left the covers on the dimensionals. I wanted their support – but did NOT want the flower to lay down that tightly.  Make sense?

To finish off – I got a little jiggy with the color challenge and added a Cinnamon Cider 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dot to the sentiment – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped the small flower a few times in Early Espresso on a Very Vanilla panel.  And that was it!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to an Old Olive mat and into my Early Espresso card base, popped the card front on with Black Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got more Celebrate Sunflowers flowers on the front in Early Espresso…

And a little more World of Good DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This card has so many elements I love – the Celebrate Sunflowers, die cut with their matching Sunflowers Dies.  World of Good DSP – with it’s old world look.  A little Old World Paper 3D Embossing.  And a collage!  Score!  Of course, Many Mates slides in with the perfect sentiment for this custom-order card!  I hope you like – and that this is on your wish list.

Or…your Bought-it-watching-for-the-UPS-truck list! 😉

Stampin’ Up! Forever Blossoms 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 Color Challenge from the talented JayDee this week and it’ll for sure jump-start your creative mojo!  I hope you’ll come and play along.  🙂

If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video, I appreciate you spending some of your weekend with me!  If not, but you’d like to see the replay on YouTube…here ’tis!

The color palette for our challenge didn’t really “scream” one thing or another when I saw it – which meant it was wide open for me!  I finally decided to play with a sponging and silhouette technique – using the pretty floral from the Forever Blossoms stamp set.  Take a look-see:

And here’s this week’s Paper Players Theme challenge!  Hope you’ll join the fun and show us your projects!  I can’t wait to see what you create!  🙂

The layout is from the Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

This is really easy so – I hope you’ll try it!

I started with a Whisper White panel for the card front.   From a second, identically sized, piece of card stock, I cut a Stitched Nested Label – this one is 4 1/4″ from tip-to-tip.

Using repositionable adhesive (like this one), I tacked the die cut panel to the Whisper White panel.

With sponge wedges, I sponged the middle of the opening with So Saffron.  I used Seaside Spray on the top and bottom.  Go easy – start lightly and off the edge with your sponge.  🙂

When I had the color to the depth that I wanted it, I picked up my mask and used a rubber eraser to remove the little adhesive dots.

I placed the panel in my Stamparatus and used it to stamp the big floral image from Forever Blossoms in Granite Gray.  I stamped it a couple of times to get the image as dark as I wanted.

I stamped the Forever Blossoms sentiment in Gray Granite and then added some faux stitches around the shape with my Gray Granite Stampin’ Write Marker.

I matted the panel on So Saffron for the card front.  With my Dark So Saffron Stampin’ Blend, I colored three Pearl Basic Jewels and adhered them here and there.  And that was it for the card front!

On the inside, I stamped a second sentiment from Forever Blossoms in Gray Granite on Whisper White.  I added part of the large floral image in Gray Granite – and lightly colored just the middles of the flowers with the Dark So Saffron Blend.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a So Saffron mat and into my Seaside Spray card base, popped the card front on with Stampin Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got the Forever Blossoms image again in Gray Granite and So Saffron on the front…

…and some Seaside Spray 2019-2021 In Color 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Mark the day – no layering, no bows, minimal bling! – is this REALLY a Mary card?!?  Yes – ’tis!  I love how this Forever Blossoms stamp set worked for the silhouetted image – perfect without die cutting or adding any “extras” to it.  It’s just that gorgeous of an image!  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 – before you reach for your ink and papers, check out what our amazing team has created to inspire you this week:

Stampin’ Up! Lifetime of Lasting Elegance

Good Monday morning, y’all!  Hope you’re heading into a stress-free week!

Did you know….Have you HEARD?!?  We’ve got another Sale-A-Bration Release coming on 3 Mar for you!  Whoo-hooo!!  Keep reading and I’ll bring you a digital peek!

The card I made today uses the sweet Last A Lifetime stamp set and the bundled Lasting Elegance Dies.  AND – I’ve used a couple of new papers from the Sale-A-Bration second release.  Take a look-see:

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

And my color palette is from the Color Throwdown challenge.

Now – what’s that gorgeous flower you see on the front of my card??  It’s fussy-cut from one of the new papers in the SAB Second Release – called Flowering Foils Specialty DSP.  When you select this $50-Level 1 SAB 2 reward, you’ll get twelve single-sided sheets of four designs.  All the papers are foil-embossed in Rose Gold or Silver foil.  They’re made for coloring, too – with sponges/daubers, Sponge Brayer, Stampin’ Blends…what have you!  Check them out!

To create my card, I started with a piece of Whisper White card stock that I ran thru my die-cutting machine with the corner frame die from the Lasting Elegance die set.  Then I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Night of Navy mat.

Using the 2 7/8″ wide rectangle die from the Stitched So Sweetly die set, I cut out a square from a piece of Pool Party embossed vellum from…the new So Very Vellum Specialty Vellum.  THIS is another new pack of paper – it’s a $50 Level-1 SAB 2 reward, too!  And you’ll get 6 sheets of dry-embossed vellum  – 2 each in Pool Party, Purple Posy and Soft Sea Foam!

I used Glue Dots to adhere the vellum square to the corner of the Whisper White panel.

I cut the small corner die from Lasting Elegance from a piece of Whisper White.  Left by itself, the die cuts the design from a piece of card stock – leaving negative space.  By placing the die on the corner of the card stock…

…and then using the outline die and running it back thru the machine…you’ll end up with a die cut corner!

I adhered that to the vellum square with a little Liquid Glue.

I stamped a sentiment from the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set (from the Annual Catalog) in Night of Navy on Whisper White and cut it with a Stitched So Sweetly Die – then adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue

I used Glue Dots to wind a length of Petal Pink 1/4″ Metallic-Edged Ribbon….

For the flower, I colored one of the large foiled flowers in the new Flowering Foils Specialty DSP (coming on 3 Mar) with my Petal Pink and Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Combo Packs and my Light Night of Navy and So Saffron Blends.  Then I fussy cut the flower and popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a medium Champagne Rhinestone to the sentiment and the card front was done!

On the inside, I cut the frame from Lasting Elegance again from a Whisper White panel.  In the corner, with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, I stamped the large flower image from the Last A Lifetime stamp set.  I colored the flower image with my Petal Pink and Pool Party stampin’ Blends Combo Packs and my Light Night of Navy and So Saffron Blends.  Then I added a few Champagne Rhinestones.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Night of Navy mat and into my Whisper White card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another Last A Lifetime flower on the front…

…and more colored Flowering Foils Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  How beautiful is the Last A Lifetime stamp set and bundled Lasting Elegance Dies???

And I KNOW you’re excited for those beautiful new papers, right??  Well – 3 March, they can be yours!  Along with all the other goodies that you can get for free – check them out!

Or…JOIN MY TEAM right now, and you can pre-order them as a demonstrator!  The awesome Sale-A-Bration Joining Special is still available – and I would LOVE to have you on my team!  Check out all the deets right here!

We have Big Balls!

Hey – none of that, now.  Get out the gutter!!

We have FITNESS balls – and they’re Big!

I got them blown up yesterday.  I did the biggest one with the tiny little hand pump included in the box.

THAT was a bit of a workout all on its own.

Finn…supervised.

What is this fresh nonsense, Mom??

Once I FINALLY got it all blown up and corked off (as it were), I just stepped back and let him look it over.

He spent some time woofing at it – just in case there was any doubt who was in charge of what around here!

He did sniff it a time or two…

But mostly he kept a careful distance.

I asked the Dad to blow up to two smaller balls.

HE used the air compressor in the barn.  Duh!!  WAAAAY quicker!

Once they were blown up – I let them loose in the aisle.

And – of course – did NOT have my phone.  So…didn’t catch the bounding and pawing and playing and pushing-the-ball that happened.  But – I will soon!

He may never play trei-ball competitively, but…I DO think he’s going to have some fun herding our Big Balls! 🙂
