Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Tomorrow Likeable Person 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 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 don’t know about y’all – well, I do, but….that’s such a great way to start, right?!? 😂 – but I LOVE the Beauty of Tomorrow Suite in the Jul – Dec 2021 Mini Catalog!  So…I saw a color challenge that was perfect for the Blackberry Beauty Specialty DSP and decided to start from there and use more goodies from the suite – like the Beauty of Tomorrow stamp set, Blackberry Beauty Ephemera Pack and the Gold 1/4″ Shimmer Ribbon.  Take a look-see:

Good morning, all!  How goes your week?  Mine is going along – we’re awaiting the arrival of Fred today and tomorrow.  Looks like we’ll see some rain – the track is going right over top of us!  Wayne’s been doing dirt work like crazy to protect his new pad!  I mostly hope it just cools down a bit! 🙂

My card today is a fun one (she says modestly!) that I created while on our Zoom the Craftroom yesterday!  It features the In Your Words set (get this beauty FREE with a $300+ order or workshop during Sale-A-Bration) plus the Art in Bloom stamp set.  And some awesome designer paper!  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Blackberry Beauty of Tomorrow Card

Good morning, y’all and welcome to your work week!  I hope it’s going to be a good one for you! 🙂

Last week, while I was cutting up paper for the Catalog Shares, I posted a picture over on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page of my latest favorite DSP!  It’s a specific design in the new Blackberry Beauty Specialty DSP – which is a totally gorgeous paper pack!  From the minute I saw it, I was plotting a card in my head that would showcase that particular paper perfectly!  And I think I got it done with this one, when I paired it up with the coordinating Beauty of Tomorrow stamp set.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Sunny Sentiments Spiral Symmetry Hello

Hello from Kauai!  We made the island-hop successfully – Maui to Honolulu to Kauai – yesterday.  Then hit Costco and the grocery to get provisions for the AirBnB.  Which is really nice AND has a spectacular ocean view.  I think we’ll do just fine!  Have some plans to hike and see the grotto and the National Park while we’re here!

My card for you today is a little different than my usual fare – a little outside my comfort zone – and features several fun new sets from the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog.  A Spiral Dye background lends some fun to a Sunny Sentiments….well…sentiment!  A few stylized florals from the In Symmetry stamp set finishes it all off.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! All Squared Away Celebrate You

Well – good morning, y’all!  It’s T-5 for our departure to Maui! Yes, it’s finally getting here and now it’s happening at the speed of light!  I keep adding to my “be sure to do this before you get gone” list and for some reason none of the things drop OFF! 😳😳  But – one way or the other, Saturday is going to dawn and we’re headed to the airport!

God willing and the horse don’t relapse, of course.  Didn’t mean to get cocky! 😉

But – on to the business at hand – I’ve got a fun little card for you today that uses what I think of as sort of a “fly-over” bundle!  The All Squared Away bundle is a ton of fun and I used it to make a bright and cheery card…it really plays well with the Sweet Symmetry DSP.  Take a look-see:
