Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Moments and Lily Impressions

Happy Hawwwmp Day, y’all!!  How goes your week?

We’re becoming “mold-people” here, I think!  It’s rained.  And rained.  And…yes.  Rained.  For so long now….

But – make no mistake – I’ll take this (and our unseasonably warm days!) – over snow, sleet and cold-of-night anytime!

Do want to remind you…there are only TWO days left to take advantage of my Special Bundles for the 2020 Jan – Jun Mini Catalog.  That’s right – after the day ends on the 17th (Friday!) – these specials are Gone with the Wind!!

Now – my card for today is easy.  And also peasy!  It used the lovely Beautiful Moments stamp set from the new catalog, along with the Parisian Flourish 3D Embossing Folder.  Plus…a FREE goody – the Iris Impressions DSP.  This is one you can get for free with a $50 order (before shipping and tax) while Sale-A-Bration is going on (thru 31 Mar).  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Best Dressed Thoughtful Blooms Notecard Set

Happy Tuesday!  Here we go again – the week is flying by!  You’re almost out of days to take advantage of my Double Peppermints Ordering Special (that ends on the 10th) and my Catalog Special Bundles (those will end on the 17th).  So….you know what you need to do!

For today – I made a really simple little set of note cards using the Thoughtful Blooms stamp set (a $50 level Sale-a-Bration Reward) and the coordinating Small Bloom Punch (a $100 level Sale-A-Bration Reward).  And I decorated a Mini Pizza Box to create a giftable set!  Take a look-see:

And here’s what’s on the inside!

Those are the sweet Best Dressed 3″ x 3″ Note Cards & Envelopes – aren’t they cute?  The little envelopes even have liners!

For the note cards, I used the Thoughtful Blooms stamp set to add a sentiment in Blueberry Punch to the front of each card.

I added a large-ish stem and leaves image in Pear Pizzazz.  Then I used the large variety of flower images in the set to add flowers and berries in Rococo Rose, Highland Heather, Petal Pink and Blueberry Bushel.

I decorated all three cards similarly – keeping a cohesive look to make it a “set”!  I added some Champagne Rhinestone Jewels to the flower centers because Champagne.  Rhinestone.  Jewels.  Hello?!?

This inside of the cards got a second Thoughtful Blooms sentiment in Blueberry Bushel – and more flowers!

I didn’t do a darned thing to the envelopes – didn’t have to!  They’re decorated for me!

With the note cards finished, I moved on to the Mini Pizza Box.

I cut a piece of Whisper White to 3″ x 3″ and added my sentiment in Blueberry Bushel – and some leaves and flowers like I’d done on the cards.  I also used the striped flower from Thoughtful Blooms to stamp a few Daffodil Delight flowers on a piece of Best Dressed 6″ x 6″ DSP and a couple of Petal Pink flowers on Whisper White.

I added some Blueberry Bushel centers and punched the flowers out with the Small Blooms Punch.  I adhered them all with Liquid Glue – and stuck a Champagne Rhinestone Jewel in all the flower centers!

Finally, I matted the square on Petal Pink and again on more of the Daffodil Delight Best Dressed DSP and….adhered it to the top of my Mini Pizza box with Liquid Glue!

Et Voila!  I have to say, the Thoughtful Blooms is a really nice flower-builder stamp set – the images are pretty perfect and I love the sentiments!  The Small Bloom Punch makes it super easy to add dimension to your projects!  I hope you like!

Okay.

Finn will do pretty much anything for a piece of biscuit.  Or popcorn.  Or a cookie.  Or a broccoli.

He’s a bit of a chow-hound.

But he’s so darned cute at it!

Please make note of the paw…

He’s ambi-paw-strous.

Pretty sweet.  And highly effective.

Stampin’ Up! Grace’s Garden Gateway Sneak Peek

Good morning!  Do you realize this is the last Sunday in 2019?  Wowza – the year seems to have flown by!  As we head into 2020….are you a Resolutions person?  Or…do you just see what comes and roll with it?  I’m not really one to make resolutions – I USED to say I was going to go on a diet.  Or exercise more.  Or… Or… Or…  But, it always left me failing to meet my own standard, so…I gave that up!  I suppose you could say I resolved to NOT make resolutions – and finally found one I could keep! LOL

If you were able to join me last night for my LAST FACEBOOK LIVE OF 2019….I appreciate you spending part of the weekend with me!  If not, but you’d like to see the replay on YouTube – here ’tis!

The card I made is sort of a CASE from the new 2020 Jan-Jun Mini Catalog – they have a really pretty example using the Grace’s Garden stamp set and bundled Garden Gateway Dies, and I thought you might like to see how to make it for yourself.  Take a look-see:

I decided I’d play along with the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge for the end of the year.

I started with a piece of Sahara Sand card stock.  In the middle-ish, I used the outline die from the Garden Gateway Dies to cut out the gate-shaped opening.  Then I laid the panel on top of my Highland Heather mat to line up the opening – and cut the same shape – in the same place.

Finally, I lined the whole thing up on the front of my Whisper White card base, and cut the shape a third time.  Thus…a window was created! 😉

I embossed the Sahara Sand panel in my Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing Folder, then dragged my Craft Whisper White ink pad across it to vintage-ize it a bit.  Then I adhered it to the Highland Heather mat with Liquid Glue.

I cut the Garden Gate from a piece of Thick Whisper White card stock and adhered it to the card front using Liquid Glue – only on the archway – not across the bottom of the gate.  I left the gates connected for now.

On another piece of Whisper White, I stamped several of the flower images from Grace’s Garden in Basic Gray ink.  Then I used an older Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush to color the flowers.  I gently squeezed the ink pads to put ink on the inside of the lid – then picked up the color with the brush.  I used Granny Apple Green for all the leaves.  The flowers are in Highland Heather, Melon Mambo and Rococo Rose.

Then I stamped a little bird in Blueberry Bushel and used the Glitter Brush to “pull” ink and color him.

I cut out all the flowers and the bird with the dies in Garden Gateway.  And I also cut two leaves in Granny Apple Green.

I layered the leaves and flowers onto the sides of the gate with Liquid Glue.  The “top” flowers are popped on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  You can see I snuggled the bird in, too, with a little Liquid Glue.

At this point, I carefully snipped the gates “open” with my Paper Snips.  I stamped the “Hello” sentiment from Grace’s Garden in Highland Heather on Whisper White, cut it out with a Stitched So Sweetly die (coming on 3 Jan!) and adhered it to just one side of the gate.  And the scene was complete!

On the inside, I added a second sentiment – in Basic Gray.  Then I sponged around with Highland Heather.  I added more flowers in Basic Gray, a couple of picket fence images in Sahara Sand and a little birdie in Blueberry Bushel.  I even adhered another die cut flower over the fence image.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Highland Heather mat and into the Thick Whisper White card base and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Sahara Sand fence and a die cut flower on the front…

…and the smallest Grace’s Garden flower image on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I love the Grace’s Garden Bundle so much, y’all – it let’s me create the kind of English cottage garden I can only DREAM of doing “for real”!  So much easier with paper and ink!!  I hope you like – and have it on your “must-have” list!

Not for nuthin’ – you COULD get this set  – and whole lot of other awesome-ness – at a great savings, as part of my Special Bundle #8 – The Say It In Ink Bundle!!  Check it out!

Stampin’ Up! Young at Heart Thanks for the Laughs Sneak Peek

Happy Friday-after-Christmas!  Did you go out yesterday to hit the After-Christmas Sales?  Wayne and a friend left early and spent the day on the lake fishing – yes, it’s that kind of weather here right now!  Me and Finn?  We stayed home and watched the news with all the reports of the After-Christmas traffic and thanked our lucky stars that we weren’t out in it!

While I was doing all that, I made a card (I know – crazy!).  It uses a new set called Thanks For The Laughs (coming in the 2020 Jan-Jun Mini Catalog and, incidentally, part of my Special Bundle #8: The Say It In Ink Bundle) and a new-to-me set from the Annual Catalog called Young At Heart.  Take a look-see:

How great is that sentiment??

The interesting layout is from this week’s CAS(E) This Sketch challenge.

I started with a piece of Whisper White card stock and two strips of Best Dressed 6″ x 6″ DSP (also from the 2020 Jan-Jun Mini Catalog and available on 3 Jan).  I laid the strips out to get the layout in place – then used my Stamparatus to stamp the cute image from Young At Heart in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.

I colored the ladies with my Purple Posy and Pretty Peacock Stampin’ Blends Combos, plus my Light So Saffron and Light Crumb Cake Blends.  The blondes headband is Pretty Peacock and I used a Stampin’ Write Marker for that.

Then I adhered the DSP strips in place – and used my shiny new Paper Trimmer to cut the excess from the sides and top.  I matted the panel on Purple Posy using Liquid Glue.

I pulled out some Whisper White 1/4″ Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon – from the new catalog – and colored it with my Dark Pretty Peacock Stampin’ Blend.  I wrapped a length of it around the panel – securing it in the back with Glue Dots.

For the sentiment, I inked the top half of the Thanks for the Laughs sentiment in Pretty Peacock and stamped it on a piece of Pool Party card stock.  Then I cleaned the stamp and inked the bottom half of the sentiment and stamped it.  I cut both sentiments with a Stitched So Sweetly Die (available on 3 Jan) and popped them onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I wrapped some Silver Metallic Thread around the ribbon next to the sentiment and tied a snug knot.  Then I adhered a bow from the colored ribbon with a Glue Dot over the thread.  That helps to make it look more like I tied the bow the “right” way!

I added a few Gorgeous Grape gems from the Noble Peacock Rhinestones and the card front was done.

On the inside, I matted a piece of the Best Dressed 6″ x 6″ DSP on Purple Posy and then adhered it to a Whisper Whtie panel and trimmed the excess.  On a diagonal, I added a second sentiment from the Thanks For the Laughs set in Pretty Peacock, then added a Noble Peacock Rhinestone.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Purple Posy mat and 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 the two ladies on the front…

…and more of the Best Dressed 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  It’s like they were made for each other, isn’t it?  Thanks For the Laughs – with its super-fun sentiments – and the crazy women from Young At Heart go together like Caramel and Sea Salt!  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Silvered Forever Blossoms Sneak Peek

Good morning and Happy Friday!!  Whoo-hoo!  And there’s a lot going on, isn’t there?  Baking and wrapping and shipping, oh my!  Hope you’re getting it all done!

Don’t be so busy that you miss a chance to join my Online Host Club starting in January!  EVERYONE in the club will get a chance to be the host during Sale-A-Bration!  And – in the six-months of the club, you’ll get to “host” twice.  Which is amazeballs!  Of course, “hosting” just means YOU get the host benefits.  No work involved – I’ll do it all.  Winner Winner.  Check all the deets right here.

And there’s also still time to get in on my 2020 Jan – Jun Mini Catalog Shares!

Okay – with that little bit of business out of the way, let’s take a look at a pretty Sneak Peek card I made using a lovely set coming in January, called Forever Blossoms!  Sorry – this picture angle is hard (Can you tell there is SILVER on this card?!) – take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Versailles Gathered Leaves and Boughs

Good morning!  By the time you read this – Finn, Wayne and I’ll be headed to NC to winterize our RV trailer – it’s Wayne’s “home away from home” when he goes to work on the rental house.  Since Father Winter is looming down and the freeze warnings are flying around – seemed like a good time to be sure it was ready to get thru winter without frozen….anything! 🙂

If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live, I appreciate you spending part of your weekend with me!  If not, but you’d like to see some of the techniques we played with – and the card we put together….here’s the replay!

I used die cuts from the Gathered Leaves AND Beautiful Boughs sets and a fun “napkin” coloring technique.  The “watercolored” die cuts were paired up with the Very Versailles stamp set (from the Annual Catalog) and a little Come to Gather DSP.  Take a look-see:
