Stampin’ Up! A Little Lace Sneak Peek

Hey y’all – welcome to another week.  Isn’t there a holiday coming up soon?

I hope?

My card today is very simple – and showcases a sweet little new set from the 2019-2010 Annual Catalog called A Little Lace.  Take a look-see:

I started by stamping the large image from A Little Lace in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a Whisper White panel – using my Stamparatus.  I also added a few additional images around the large one.

With my Light and Dark Petal Pink and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends, I colored some of the flowers.

I added the sentiment from A Little Lace in Pretty Peacock – and then added another little fleur-de-do in the corner.

I added some doodle-dashes around the panel with my Journaling Pen.  The panel is double matted on Basic Black and Petal Pink.

I added a couple three Gold Faceted Gems – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added another floral image from A Little Lace in the four corners of a Whisper White panel, and colored them with the Light and Dark Daffodil Delight Blends.  Then I “connected” them with doodle-dashes.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel on Basic Black and Petal Pink, then into my Pretty Peacock card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more A Little Lace florals and some doodle-dashes on the front…

…and all I did on the envelope flap was…doodle-dashes! 🙂

Et Voila!  A Little Lace is such fun – and it’s even got a die set bundled with it called the Stitched Lace Dies – which I can’t wait to use!  But – it also works really well all by itself, don’t you think?  I hope you like!

Finn brought me a Mother’s Day gift yesterday.

I THINK he re-gifted… 😉

And…he sort of asked if he could hold on to it while I wasn’t chewing on it.  For safe keeping and stuff – keep that darned cat from getting it.

Definitely a “gift of love”! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Come Sail Away North Sneak Peek For the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hey y’all – it’s Thursday, so it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!!  Today’s Hop is a sketch challenge and I’m excited to see what everyone comes up with –  I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop!

I fell in love with the Come Sail Away Suite of goodies when I made my samples and presentation for OnStage this past April!  And when I saw today’s sketch challenge, my brain saw the lighthouse in the vertical element.  So I pulled the Sailing Home stamp set and bundled Smooth Sailing Dies out and…take a look-see:

And here’s the sketch – which I turned on its side!

I started with some pretty Mossy Meadow striped paper from the Come Sail Away DSP pack and matted it on Soft Suede for the card front.  I also matted a second smaller DSP panel on Soft Suede and added it to the card front with Liquid Glue.  Then, I wrapped a piece of 5/8″ Burlap Ribbon around the panel – securing it in the back with Glue Dots.

I cut two “rope” lengths from Soft Suede – this is a cool die from Smooth Sailing – and adhered them with Liquid Glue.

On a Whisper White panel, I stamped the compass image from Sailing Home multiple times in Soft Suede, cut it with a Stitched Shapes Framelits circle and popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the aforementioned lighthouse in Soft Suede on Whisper White then used a Blender Pen and ink from the lid of my Mossy Meadow ink pad to lightly color it.  I cut it with the matching Smooth Sailing Die and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I stamped the Sailing Home sentiment in Mossy Meadow on a bannerized (with Paper Snips!) strip of Whisper White.  Then I added faux stitches with my Soft Suede Stampin’ Write Marker and used a Dimensional and Liquid Glue to adhere it.

I cut the two compass needle pieces from the Smooth Sailing Dies – the larger in Soft Suede and the finer needle in Mossy Meadow and adhered them to the middle compass rose pointing…North.  I colored a Pearl Basic Jewel with my Bronze Stampin’ Blend and stuck it in the middle of the needle.

To make the “antique bronze” trinkets – from the silver Sail Away Trinkets – I first colored them with my Bronze Stampin’ Blend.  When the ink was dry, I lightly touched here and there with my Light Basic Black Blend.  Worked great!  I used a Glue Dot to adhere the wheel under the sentiment.  Then I added a “lanyard” of Mossy Meadow (from the Magnolia Lane Ribbon Combo Pack coming on 4 June) and Old Olive Linen Threads and adhered the anchor with another Glue Dot – and that was it for the card front!

On the inside, I added the Sailing Home compass image in Soft Suede in the corner of a Whisper White panel.   On the middle compass, I added a die cut “needle” in Soft Suede and Mossy Meadow – adding a Bronzed Pearl Basic Jewel to the middle.

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Sailing Home compasses in Soft Suede on the front…

…and some more of the shipping chart image from the Come Sail Away DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Boy oh boy – this Come Sail Away Suite is just….amazing!  Don’t you think?!?  I just love it – and think there are so many possible projects to make using the wonderful images and sentiments.  And…the paper.  The PAPER!!  Wow!  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Above the Clouds Sneak Peek

Happy Happy HAWWWP Day!!  Hope your week is going well!

My card today is a colorful and fun one – a little outside my wheelhouse cuz it’s bright AND Clean-And-Simple!  It showcases a fun new stamp/punch bundle in the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog called Above the Clouds!  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one comes from this week’s FUSION challenge sketch.

And the fun color scheme hails from the As You See It color challenge.

I started with some Powder Pink polka-dot paper from the 2017-2019 In Colors DSP Stack and matted it on Basic Black for the card front.

On a strip of Whisper White, I stamped the sentiment from Above the Clouds (coming on 4 June!) in Lovely Lipstick.  Then I matted it on Basic Black and adhered it with Liquid Glue.

On a separate piece of Whisper White, I stamped the balloon envelope (yes, that’s the technical name for the balloon part of a hot-air balloon.  You’re welcome) in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink three times – and punched them all out with the bundled Hot Air Balloon Punch.  I also stamped it on Pineapple Punch DSP (twice) and once on Lovely Lipstick DSP.  Those I fussy cut.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the fussy cut balloons to the punched Whisper White balloons.

I also stamped a couple of little baskets in Tuxedo Black, punched them out and adhered them with Liquid Glue to the bottom of two of the balloons.  I used my Light Lovely Lipstick and Pineapple Punch Stampin’ Blends to color the baskets.

I adhered the two Pineapple Punch balloons to the card front with Liquid Glue and popped the Lovely Lipstick balloon on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a retiring Happiness Blooms Enamel Dot in Pineapple Punch by the sentiment and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped another of the Above the Clouds sentiments in Lovely Lipstick on my Whisper White panel.  Over that – to frame it – I stamped another balloon and basket image in Pineapple Punch.  Then I colored the basket like I’d done on the front and added a Pineapple Punch Enamel Dot.

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another hot air balloon on the front…

…and then I added a little more of the Lovely Lipstick 2018-2020 In Color DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  What a cool bundle!  And, while it’s awesome using the Hot Air Balloon Punch to create Above the Clouds balloons, it will ALSO help you to make fuller Magnolia flowers when paired up with the Magnolia Lane suite!  Whoo-hooo!  I hope you like and will plan to add this fun little set to your wish list!

Stampin’ Up! Daisy Lane Sneak Peek for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hey y’all – it’s Thursday, so it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!!  Today’s Hop is a color challenge and I’m excited to see what everyone comes up with –  I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop!

I decided that the color scheme was really asking for some flowers and leaves – so…I pulled out the new Daisy Lane stamp set!  Now, this set will be bundled (read: SAVE 10%!) with the new Medium Daisy Punch which will come out in the new 2019-2020 Annual Catalog at the same time this set makes its debut!  AND – it also works with the Daisy Punch, which is already active and is carrying over.  So…take a look-see:

And here’s the color scheme in question!

Flowers, right??

I started with two panels of Sahara Sand and, with a little tiny dab of Liquid Glue, temporarily stuck them together.  That’s a pretty classic start to a Double-Time or Triple-Time card!

I inked up the large daisy in the new Daisy Lane (4 June!) stamp set with Highland Heather and stamped them a couple of times – without re-inking, here and there on the layered panels.

I inked the pretty leaf from Daisy Lane in Pear Pizzazz and repeated the process.  Folls – there’s a strong chance this is going to be my favorite leaf image EVER!!

With Highland Heather, I added the sentiment from Daisy Lane.

Then I ran the whole thing thru the Big Shot in the Subtle Dynamic TIEF.

I matted both panels on Pear Pizzazz and then adhered the smaller panel to the card front.  I used my Pear Pizzazz and Highland Heather Stampin’ Write Markers to add a little color in the margins – cleaning up the space left by the stamping.  Then I popped the smaller panel over the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a seperate piece of Sahara Sand, I stamped more daisies in Highland Heather.  I made several full-strength and several stamped-off-once – then layered them…I fussy cut them – but…YOU could (I’d even go so far as to say SHOULD!) use the Medium Daisy Punch (which will come out on 4 Jun) and the Daisy Punch (which is in the current catalog – but…I left it at home!).

I added a couple of short lengths of Whisper White 5/8″ Flax Ribbon with a couple of Glue Dots.  On the back of the flower, I used Liquid Glue to wind some Gold Metallic Thread in loops.  Finally, I adhered the flower to the card front.

I added a Gold Faceted Gem to the flower center and a couple up in the corner – and the card front was done!

On the inside I added a second sentiment from Daisy Lane in Highland Heather on a Sahara Sand panel, then added some full-strength and stamped-off-once flowers in the corner.  A couple of Pear Pizzazz leaves finished it off.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the Sahara Sand panel to a Pear Pizzazz mat and then into my Highland Heather card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got a couple more Highland Heather flowers and Pear Pizzazz leaves on the front…

…and another leaf on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  How.  Cool.  Is.  This.  Daisy Lane stamp set?!?  And it’s a PUNCH set!  Whoo-hooo!  I hope you like and have moved this one up to the top of your list for the release of the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog on 4 June!

Stampin’ Up! Bird Ballad Sneak Peek For a Friend

Morning, all!  Happy weekend!  Are you all on your way to see Avengers Endgame?  I am NOT – not cuz I don’t want to (I most desperately DO!) – but because there’s barely a ticket to be had!  One of the guys went to the special early release showing on Thursday night – and he gave it two thumbs up.  I’m really hoping to go next weekend!

One little admin note before we get to the card – I will NOT be doing my FB Live tonight! I have a previous engagement and won’t be around.  So…we’ll get together TOMORROW night – Sunday, at 7 pm Eastern.  Okey dokey?  Hopefully the hotel internet will cooperate.  If not – take heart…in theory I’ll be home in a couple of weeks and we won’t have to worry about sharing bandwidth with everyone ELSE trying to stream their videos!

Okay – let’s get it, shall we?  My card today is yet another Sneak Peek (I can’t help it very much – all these new goodies are just sitting there BEGGING to be played with!  Who am I to deny them??).  This one uses the so-pretty Bird Ballad suite (coming on 4 June) – take a look-see:

This layout is courtesy of this week’s Global Design Project sketch challenge.

And – as a little reminder, here’s the Bird Ballad Suite…

I started with some of the beautiful flower-and-bird strewn paper from the Bird Ballad DSP (available on 4 June) and matted it on Daffodil Delight for the card front.  I wrapped some Petal Pink 5/8″ Organdy Striped Ribbon (from the coming-soon Perennial Essence Suite) around the panel, securing it in the back with Glue Dots.

Next up, using my Stamparatus, I stamped the Free As A Bird sentiment in Tuxedo Black on a Whisper White square.  Above it, I added the bird-on-a-branch image, also in Tuxedo Black.

I matted the square on Daffodil Delight and popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a seperate piece of Whisper White, I stamped the bird-and-branch image again in Tuxedo Black.  Using my Light and Dark Daffodil Delight, Petal Pink, Crumb Cake, and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends, I colored the image.  Then I fussy cut it. 🙂

I used Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals (it’s me – so…I used a bunch!) and popped the colored birds over top of the black-and-white image.

I tied a bow from the Petal Pink 5/8″ Organdy Striped Ribbon and adhered it with a Glue Dot – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped a second Free As A Bird sentiment in Tuxedo Black on Whisper White.  Then I added some flowers and leaves in Tuxedo Black sort of scattered all over.  I stamped the images a couple of times without re-inking.  Then I used my Light and Dark Petal Pink Blends to color the flowers.

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Free As A Bird flowers and leaves on the front…

…and I added more of the pretty Bird Ballad DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This whole gorgeous Bird Ballad suite just screams SPRING, doesn’t it?  The images and beautiful sentiments in the Free As A Bird stamp set coordinate perfectly with the Bird Ballad DSP.  And – watch for those uber-cool Stitched Nested Labels dies!  Go ahead – just add this one to your wish list!  You know you’re going to get it!  Hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Magnolia Lane No-Ink Memories & More Sneak Peek

Happy Tuesday, y’all!  Hope the week is going well for you!  We’ve finally got warm weather up here, so it’s nice to be able to NOT have to wear all our heavy insulated winter gear! 🙂

My card today is another no-ink card.  And it uses another new (available 4 June) set of Memories & More Cards – this is the Magnolia Lane set.  Once I opened it up last Saturday to share with you, my brain had been making this card!  Of course, I also used the new (coming on 4 June in the new catalog) Magnolia Lane Large Specialty Cards & Envelopes, too.  And – that was about all I needed!  Take a look-see:

The layout for this card comes from the sketch portion of this week’s FUSION Challenge.

Here’s a reminder of all the wonderful goody-goodness in the new Magnolia Lane Suite! 🙂

And here’s the Magnolia Memories & More Card Pack and Large Specialty Cards & Envelopes!

I started with one of those cards and one small sentiment panel from the Card Pack.  I matted the panel on a piece of Basic Black cardstock and popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut a strip from another panel of the Card Pack and matted it on Basic Black, too.  Then I adhered three of the fun Magnolia Lane Cork Embellishments and added the whole thing to the card front with more Liquid Glue.

I tied a Linen Thread Double-Loop bow and stuck it on with a Glue Dot.  Over top is a simple bow tied from some new Mossy Meadow Linen Thread.  This new Linen Thread is part of the Magnolia Lane Ribbon Combo Pack – and you’ll be able to get IT on 4 June, too!

And – y’all?  That was all the front of this card needed!

For the inside, I used a large panel from the card pack and added a single magnolia sticker – which is just one of the cool embellishments included in the Magnolia Lane Memories & More Card Pack.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Basic Black mat and into my Large Specialty Card – and that was it!

My envelope – also part of the Magnolia Lane Large Specialty Cards & Envelopes – got another couple of stickers on the front…

…and I simply adhered one of the INCLUDED envelope liners inside to finish it off!  How beautiful is that liner?!? 🙂

Et Voila!  This entire Magnolia Lane Suite is going to be my favorite, I’m pretty sure!  I love the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set and matching Magnolia Memory Dies – even though I didn’t need them for this card!  And I’ve become a total fan of Memories & More Card Packs in general – and this one in particular!  It is simply a most spectacular suite of goodies – I hope you like and have added it to your GOTTA HAVE IT lists! 🙂

No new pictures of the Man until I can get home to take them! 🙁

My Mom sent me this little cartoon – and it seemed pretty perfect for this part of my post – one that centers on my sweet Finn – who loves me no matter how fat or skinny I am, no matter if I’ve washed (or even finger-combed!) my hair or put make-up on.  All of you who are loved by a dog understand this picture.

Stampin’ UP! Wonderful Romance in Lemon Lime Twist

Good Friday!

Literally! 🙂

Hope you have a good Easter weekend planned – I’m headed over to our friends’ place in DE on Sunday.  We’ll go to church and then I’ll spend the day with them before returning “home” in the afternoon.  It’s been a minute since I’ve seen them, so I’m looking forward to it! 🙂

My card today is a bit of a tribute to two things leaving us at the end of May – the Wonderful Romance stamp set and…LEMON LIME TWIST!!  How many of you LOVE LLT like I do!?!  I was happy we got Granny Apple Green, which I also love, but…I’ll miss the bright pops of Lemon Lime Twist.  This is a monochromatic card featuring this fave LOUD and CLEAR.  Take a look-see:

Hang with me, folks – there’s a method to my madness!  This color scheme is thanks to this week’s Global Design Project challenge.

I assume you know what my color of choice is…?

And the layout is from this FabFriday challenge.

I started with some Gingham Gala DSP (this is going away TOO!! – so getcha some now if you want a stash of it!) in Lemon Lime Twist and matted it on Lemon Lime Twist for the card front.

To create the frame, I used two Rectangle Stitched Framelits – the large one and one that is TWO sizes down from it – and ran them thru the Big Shot on a piece of Lemon Lime Twist card stock.

On a piece of Whisper White, I stamped the large floral image from Wonderful Romance in Lemon Lime Twist ink.  Then I used my Clear Wink of Stella as a paintbrush to color the leaves with…say it with me…Lemon Lime Twist.  This is a great way to add color and shine all at once – and you can add shading simply by adding more or less ink!

I cheated the monochromatic theme ever so slightly – and lightly touched the middle of the larger flowers and the tiny flowers in Powder Pink with the Clear Wink of Stella brush.

I adhered the art behind the LLT frame with Liquid Glue and popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The sentiment, from Wonderful Romance, is stamped in LLT on Whisper White, cut with a Stitched Shapes Framelits circle die, and matted on a LLT Starburst Punch mat.  Then I adhered it with Liquid Glue.

A few Pearl Basic Jewels and simple bow tied with a double length of Whisper White Solid Baker’s Twine finished off the card front.

On the inside, I stamped the leaf image from Wonderful Romance twice in LLT and colored them with my Clear Wink of Stella.  Then I added a few Pearl Basic Jewels.

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Wonderful Romance leaves on the front…

…and I put a little more Gingham Gala DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Not gonna fib ya – I kind of love this card!  The Wonderful Romance floral looks clean and bright in – mostly! – Lemon Lime Twist, don’t you think?  And Gingham Gala will forever be a favorite of mine!  There’s a lot on this card that’s leaving us soon – so…I hope you like AND that you’re snapping these up!  Get your inks, refills and Card Stocks in the 2017-2019 In Colors right away – they’re only available while supplies last – and they won’t last long!

Stampin’ UP! Mosaic Mood Daisy Lane Sneak Peek

Guess what DAY IT IS?!?  Yep!  You know it to be THAT DAY!

I’ve got a sneak peek for you today – we got the new Daisy Lane stamp set AND a pack of Mosaic Mood Specialty DSP as a little part of our “swag” at OnStage last weekend – as well as the new Timeless Label Punch (all of these will be available to customers on 4 Jun 19!).  So – since I’d been so excited to get these little goodies, I decided to share a project I made with them!  Take a look-see:

I took a little inspiration for some of the elements on the card from the samples in the new 2019-2020 Annual Catalog!  And – I let the theme from this week’s Just Us Girls Challenge give me a hand, too!

Before we get too far – check the Daisy Lane stamp set (coming on 4 Jun).  This one coordinates with the Daisy Punch (which you may already have – if you don’t, you can pick it up right now and be ready!) and…there’s a new MEDIUM DAISY PUNCH coming in the catalog!!  Whoo-hooo!

And check out this gorgeous Mosaic Mood Specialty DSP!  It’s got mosaic tile images with shiny accents and I love it already!

Okay – so let’s make a card!

I started with some Very Vanilla, matted on Soft Suede for the card front.  On top of that, I used Liquid Glue to adhere a square of the Mosaic Mood Specialty DSP (4 Jun availability).

For the art panel, I first used my Stamparatus to stamp a couple of leaves and stems from Daisy Lane in Mint Macaron on a Very Vanilla panel.  I also inked the smallest daisy image from Daisy Lane in Crushed Curry, stamped it off once, and added it a couple of times around the leaves.

Then I matted the panel on Soft Suede and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

On a separate piece of Very Vanilla, I stamped three large daisies and three medium daisies from Daisy Lane in Crushed Curry.  I punched the large ones with the Daisy Punch – and fussy cut the smaller ones.  In about a month, I’ll use the Medium Daisy Punch – and YOU SHOULD, TOO! 🙂

I built my flowers by adhering them together with a Stampin’ Dimensional – either regular size or mini.  Then I added a Gold Faceted Gem to the middle of each flower.

The sentiment, also from Daisy Lane, is stamped in Mint Macaron on Very Vanilla and cut out with the new Timeless Label Punch (4 Jun).  I added some small Daisy Lane daisies over top in stamped-off-once Crushed Curry.  Then I used my Soft Suede Stampin’ Write Marker to edge the label.

I created a “pot” with a strip of Soft Suede (for the top “rim”) and an angled piece that I also embossed in the Basket Weave Dynamic TIEF (carrying over!).  I adhered the pot to the panel with Liquid Glue and popped the “rim” on with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the stacked daisies and Stampin’ Dimensionals for the sentiment.  Then I added a Mint Macaron bow from Nature’s Twine and a final Gold Faceted Gem.  Then I fussy cut a few leaves from the Mosaic Mood Specialty DSP and stuck them in here and there with Liquid Glue to finish the card front.  Check that adorable bee!

On the inside, I used my Stamparatus to add a second sentiment from Daisy Lane in Mint Macaron on a Very Vanilla panel – then I added a stamped-off-once Crushed Curry daisy over top.

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

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got more daisies on the front – I stamped the ones on the right side twice without re-inking, and the one on the left is stamped-off-once…

…and I added a little more Mosaic Mood Specialty DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voial!  Oh.  My.  Goodness!!  How awesome is this stamp set, y’all!??  And the beautiful Mosaic Mood Specialty DSP?  I mean seriously!  And the fact that we’re getting a new Medium Daisy Punch (and the current Daisy Punch AND Daisy Delight stamp sets are carrying over!!) means we’re going to have SO many options for creating gorgeous florals on our projects!  Get the Daisy Delight stamp set and Daisy Punch NOW and then add these new goodies to your wish list!

Hope you like!

Stampin’ UP! Come Sail Away Sneak Peek!

Good morning!  Have you been scouring the Retiring List?  Making sure you’ve grabbed up your favorites?  Are you one of those folks who does NOT own Lovely as a Tree – and figured it would “be available forever and ever and no need to buy it now!”??  Well…uhm…yea.  That’s not happening!  So…don’t assume your faves will always be here – get them NOW!  Just sayin’!

As the old and wonderful get ready to take their swan song, the NEW and wonderful are waiting in the wings to WOW you!  One of those is the new Come Sail Away Suite that I demo’d this past weekend.  I thought I’d show one of those samples to you today – in a little more detail – so that you can get a really good look at the Sailing Home stamp set and Smooth Sailing Dies – all available to customers on 4 Jun!  Take a look-see:

This one is easier to make than you might think – so…here we go! 🙂

I started with a piece of Night of Navy card stock and the Seaside TIEF (which is on the Retiring List, folks – so….be sure you get it before you can’t!).  With my Craft Whisper White Ink Pad, I swiped across the DEBOSSING side of the TIEF – so the indented side.  I made sure I had good coverage then carefully placed the Night of Navy panel in the folder and ran it thru the Big Shot.  When it came out – boom!!  Instant “water” – which I enhanced even more by brushing Clear Wink of Stella over the raised “waves”.

I matted the panel on Sahara Sand to create the card front.

Next up, using the grasses die in the new Smooth Sailing Dies – available on 4 June! – I cut one from Old Olive and two from Mossy Meadow.  These I adhered to the card front with Liquid Glue – only at the bottom of the die cuts, letting the tops sort of “float”.  See what I did there? 😉

I did the same with a grass die cut from Vellum card stock – did you hear me mention on the demonstration that there is COLORED Vellum in the new 20190-2020 Annual Catalog?  Yep – it’s in the Perennial Essence Vellum pack 12″ x 12″ sheets in Old Olive, Petal Pink and So Safffron!  Whoo-hooo!

The anchor, from the Sailing Home stamp set, is stamped in Sahara on Whisper White and cut with the matching die from the Smooth Sailing Die set.  I used a length of the new Night of Navy & Sahara Sand Baker’s Twine (part of the Suite and coming on 4 June), looped it thru the top of the die cut anchor, tied a knot and then adhered the anchor on with Liquid Glue.

I stamped the Sailing Home sentiment in Mossy Meadow on Whisper White, cut it out with the label die in Smooth Sailing, and popped it over all the sea grass and anchor with Dimensionals.

Some Pearl Basic Jewels scattered here and there finished off the card front!

On the inside, on a piece of Whisper White, I stamped the anchor in Sahara Sand.  Then, I used my Sponge Daubers and the card stock “stencils” created when I cut the grasses for the card front! – to sponge some grass on and around the anchor in Old Olive and Mossy Meadow.

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

I repeated the Sailing Home/Smooth Sailing stamping and stencil sponging on the front of my Whisper White Medium Envelope…

…and then I stamped the anchor onto the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  How excited are you about this Come Sail Away Suite?!?  This product suite has so many good elements in it – and it’s going to be an awesome tool for all your crafting needs – especially for creating those frequently-problematic masculine cards.  I hope you like – and have now written this suite down as one of your first purchases when the new catty comes out in June!  Unless you want it RIGHT NOW.  I can help you with that!  Give me a shout! 🙂

Carryover Clear-Mount and Wood-Mount Stamps

The lists sort of make it look like every single stamp set from the 2018-19 Annual Catalog is being retired – but that is not the case.  Rather, the stamp sets currently offered in clear-mount or wood-mount (in the 2018–2019 Annual Catalog), that ARE carrying over – are simply being transitioned to Cling Mount.

These transition sets that will be in the 2019–2020 annual catalog –  will continue to be offered in clear-mount and/or wood-mount until existing inventory has been depleted or until June 4, 2019 (whichever comes first).  If the inventory is depleted, you will be notified of the automatic switch to cling when placing an order for that stamp set. This means that you may end up purchasing select cling stamp sets (in carryover artwork) before they can be ordered from the catalog!  All carryover rubber stamp sets will be available in cling medium only (with the exception of background stamps in North America) beginning June 4, 2019.

Click here to see the list of stamp sets that ARE carrying over as Cling sets. 🙂

Any other stamp sets on the 2018-19 Annual Catalog retiring list that are NOT on this list will be retired.  Sorry again for the confusion!  Stampin’ Up! is aware of it and hopefully will be posting an updated list for us.
