Stampin’ Up! Fitting & Framed Florets Sneak Peek Exploding Box Fun Fold with Video Tutorial

Hello hello!  How goes your weekend so far?  Wayne’s been busy – he got all the steel up on the sides of the garden shed yesterday – whoo-hoo!!  And Finny and I had a playdate with his sister Scout – and Jax, Teddy, Higgins and Reba!  So – big day here!

And then, last night – I got on YouTube and shared a cool fun fold – called an Exploding Box!  I got to try one at our retreat last weekend – my friend Susan Stanley brought it as her shoebox swap – and I loved it!  So…I made another one – this one using the wunnermus Fitting Florets DSP and the Framed Florets Bundle – you can get all these new goodies on 1 Nov!  Take a look-see:

Good morning and happy weekend-eve!  Hope you’ve got something fun planned for the weekend. I honestly don’t know WHAT is on our playlist so…I’m just going to play it by ear! 🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️

My card today is another CASE (I know – it’s like I’ve not had an original thought in my head all week!! 😉 ) – this one from my friend and upline Amy Koenders!  Her shoebox swap card from the retreat last weekend – using the Brightest Beauty bundle – really inspired me for this one – but I used the Forever Fern stamp set and coordinating Forever Flourishing Die set!  And…the cool a la carte die set called Fabulous Frames.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Splendid Thoughts in Triple Time!

Good morning and happy Hawwmp Day!  That ole MikeMikeMike just keeps showing up! 🙂

So – I have some exciting news…we decided yesterday that Wayne’s going to go down to OnStage with me in November and then – on the Sunday after the event – we’re going to drive the additional 2 1/2 hours south to Orlando and the Home of the Mouse!  Yep – going to DinneyWorld!  AND – maybe even to Universal for a day.  Star Wars – Guardians of the Galaxy – HogWarts – Soaring – Mission to Mars – here we come!!  I’ve been wanting to go back for a while and…this seemed like a great time to do it!  Whoo-hoo!!

Okay.  Back to bizness!  Today’s card is a CASE of another card from this past weekend – and AGAIN from Karen Ksenzacovic!!  Her card reminded me how much I love the Triple Time Technique.  So…out it came – with the sweet Splendid Thoughts stamp set taking center stage.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Pretty Prints Hello There Card

Happy Happy Hawwwmp Day, y’all!  We’re back in “last gasp of summer” mode here – nice for a few hours in the morning, but then…channeling a SAUNA around lunch.  Yuk.  AND – it’s getting dark earlier and earlier.  DOUBLE YUK!  But – dark early means cooler days are coming – which I am looking forward to – I’m anxious to start griping about the COLD – not the hot! 🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️

My card today is not Christmas.  Nor Fall.  It’s all about gorgeous organic images of cool greenery and Calypso Coral-ery!  Yes – I’m referring to the wunnermus Pretty Prints DSP.  It plays a big role in the card – forming the base for the Nature’s Prints leaves – all cut with the bundled Natural Prints Dies.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Brightest Beauty Leaf Fall in Neutrals

Good Monday morning, y’all!  It’s Monday again and I’m at T-2 days until Amy arrives!  Whoo-hoo!  And T-3 before we head to the land of beignets!  And coffee made with nuts.  Hmmm.  One is a donut – good.  The other is coffee.  From nuts.  Chicory, to be more specific.  I am trying to withhold judgment.  But….coffee.  From…nuts.  🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️  I hope that in a few days I’ll be shaking my head in amusement at myself and buying bags to bring home in the People Mover.  One of the many advantages of driving vs flying!

I’ve got a quick and easy – and suitable for ANYONE! – card for you today.  It uses one of my fave bundles from the Jul – Dec 2022 Mini – the Brightest Beauty set with the bundled Golden Beauty Dies.  And…the amazingly wunnermus Leaf Fall 3D Embossing Folder.  All in earthy neutrals.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Amazing Phrasing To Celebrate Everything!

Good morning and Happy Monday!  Hope you had a great weekend and that the week ahead will be easy and also peasy for you!

My card today is quick.  In fact, it’s so quick that I made three of them.

Okay – I did that because I made a Reel (aka a #short) out on Instragram for you and I borked the first go.  Not the card – it’s WAY too easy to bork.  The video.  Half the silly thing was off to the side of the camera screen! 🤷‍♀️  Old dog.  New tricks. But…I shall persevere.  Heck – I learned to fly a C-5, didn’t I!? 😎😎😎

Anywho – the card features TWO free products!  The first is a Sale-a-Bration stamp set called Amazing Phrasing.  And the second is a Host-Exclusive Product from the Jul – Dec 2022 Mini Catalog called the Celebrate Everything DSP!  Take a look-see:
