Stampin’ Up! Brushed Bouquet Peaceful Moments Birthday Card

Good morning, y’all – happy new work week! Didja do anything fun this weekend?  We stuck pretty close to home – but that was a good thing!  I spent some time on Saturday uploading all my Retired goodies from the Jul – Dec 2022 Mini and the Jul – Aug 2022 SAB catalogs (plus a few other things!).  So – be sure you head over there and check it all out!  The info is down below! 🙂

When that was done, I sat down to make a card to share – and I pulled out the new Brushed Bouquet bundle.  It’s a beautiful image-only set, so…I also went to the Peaceful Moments stamp set for a birthday sentiment.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Artistic Queen Bee Birthday Card

Good morning and Happy Happy Hawwmp Day, y’all!  Hope your week is going well!  I am – sloooooowwwly! – digging out of the hole I managed to get myself in this week (time-wise!).  I do NOT know how I did it but…all of a sudden – yikes!  So – today is my get-caught-up day.  Wish me luck!! 😉

The card I made for you today really appeals to me – I love the moody dark card front courtesy of the FREE Favored Flowers DSP.  The pop of white from the Artistic Die set – with the flower-dy Queen Bee set atop it just….works!  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Elephant Parade Baby’s Birthday Book Fold Easel Fun Fold

Good morning!  It’s Monday again, y’all!  Hope you’re enjoying Daylight Standard Time.  I love it so much!

Said no one EVER!  YUK!!  On the treadmill in the dark.  Feed ponies in the evening in the dark.  Final walk around with Finn – IN THE DARK!  🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️

Did I already say…YUK!?!

On a MUCH brighter note – I learned that the little baby brush (personalized, thank you very much!) was a BIG hit with miss Jules.  Appears she’s walking around the house brushing her almost-luxurious locks with it – refusing to hand it over.  Score!! 😉

I am hoping her parents liked the card that went with – and I’ll share it with you today!  It’s a sweet little book-fold-easel card (one of my fave folds!) – and it’s adorned with an adorable heffalump from the Elephant Parade set and some Happy Forest Friends DSP.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Cloudy But Sunkissed Birthday Card with Video Tutorial

Hello hello!  Happy Sunday!  We had a great time yesterday – ate some cake, chatted with friends, cheered over the game!  Had to leave a little before the game ended to come home to feed ponies.  And Finn!

The card I made yesterday is a clean-and-simple little number – it’s a silhouette card using the Sunkissed stamp set – I was feeling in a tropical mood, I guess!  And I created a cool cloudy-sky effect using the Basic Borders Die set.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Celebrate with Tags & Soft Seedlings Birthday with Video Tutorial

Good morning – it’s T-7 days!  To what??  Well – this time next week I’ll be on the way to FLORIDA!  First to Jacksonville to meet up with a bunch of team mates for the 2022 OnStage Local and THEN – on down to Dinney!!  Hard to say which is more exciting – I’m glad I get to do BOTH and don’t have to pick!

Betwixt now and then, I’ve got some card making and sharing to do with y’all – and today is no exception!  Today’s card was inspired by my friend Darla Shelton who sent me a gorgeous card using my fave set – the Soft Seedlings stamp set!  I used that set – plus the Celebrate with Tags bundle – to make my own version – suitable-for-a-guy!  Take a look-see:

Well – the week has flown by, hasn’t it?!  It’s Friday again and we’re headed into the weekend.  AND – this time next week I’ll be putting Critters/Inkin’ Krew Retreat goodies in the car and fixin to head to the airport to pick up Amy and Karen!  Whoo-hoo!  Our team has such a good time when we’re all able to be in the same place for a weekend.  We’ll craft – and talk – and eat – and talk – and eat – and craft.  And sleep!  I can’t wait!! 🙂

Happy Happy Hawwwmp Day, y’all!  How goes your week?!  Can you believe that we’re almost all the way thru July?  Where the heck is the year going, anyway!? Yikes!!

So – even though it feels like Christmas is GALLOPING towards us – I did NOT do another Christmas card today.  Instead – I went back to my fave place – the islands!  I pulled out the Sunkissed set and got a little tiny bit of help from the Let’s Set Sail stamp set, too.  Take a look-see:

Good morning, y’all – welcome to another edition of the Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team blog hop!  Each month we make projects centered around a theme – and this month our theme is “Celebrate Summer”!  We can interpret that any way we want – so…be sure to check and see everyone’s projects – we’ve got a bunch of talented ladies hopping with us this month!

When we were on Maui last “summer” – we went on a sail-catamaran for our snorkelling trip and it.  Was….WONDERFUL!  So…when I saw the theme – the Let’s Set Sail bundle came to mind right away!  And I pulled some Hues of Happiness DSP for an ocean-y feel.  Take a look-see:
