Stampin’ Up! Sending You Thoughts and Flowers

Hey y’all!  It’s Friday and the very last day of January!  Which means…there’s only FOUR MORE DAYS until you can get your hands on the Coordination Product Release goodies!  If you’ve been off-planet for a minute and don’t know what I’m talking about…..scroll down!  All the deets are down below!

I used one of the new die sets – called the Sending Flowers Dies – and the coordinating Sending You Thoughts stamp set (a Level 1 Sale-A-Bration reward) to make today’s card.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

I pulled out a pretty Pool Party paper from the Tropical Oasis DSP (LOVE the versatility of this paper pack!!) and matted it on So Saffron for the card front.

From a square of Whisper White, I cut the big circle die in the Sending Flowers Die set.

Using my Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends Combo Pack, I colored the stems and leaves of the die cut.  Then I used Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals – and smaller pieces, too – to pop the die cut onto the card front.

The die set has two small flower dies – each die cuts four flower shapes.  I used both dies to cut flowers from So Saffron, Mango Melody and Grapefruit Grove card stock.

Then I used Liquid Glue to adhere the flowers to their matching shapes on the die cut and added Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the middles.

For the sentiment, I stamped the Sending You Thoughts sentiment in Granny Apple Green on Whisper White and cut it with the label die in the Sending Flowers set.  I also cut a second label in So Saffron.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the two labels together with a little offset.  Then I wrapped some So Saffron Baker’s Twine (from the Metallic Baker’s Twine & Sequins Pack (another of the $50 Level 1 Sale-A-Bration choices) around the end of the label, tying it in a bow at the end.

I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the sentiment to the card front.  Then I added another couple of die cut flowers and a Rhinestone Basic Jewel at the end.

On the inside, I added a second sentiment from Sending You Thoughts in Granny Apple Green to a Whisper White panel.  I adhered another couple of Sending Flowers die cuts next to it.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a So Saffron mat and then into my Granny Apple Green card base and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more flower die cuts and Rhinestones on the front (I know this card will be inside a package – heck, the sentiment practically DECLARES that it will!) so I wasn’t concerned with mailing it on its own…

…and I added a little more of the Tropical Oasis DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  So…I’ve already told you how much I love this Sending You Thoughts stamp set.  The sentiments are awesome and the fact that it’s free during Sale-A-Bration is icing on the cake!!  And now – add in the gorgeous floral die cuts in the Sending Flowers Die set (which you’ll be able to pick up starting on 4 Feb!).  Wow!  I hope you like – and have added this die set to your Must Have list!

If you’d like to recreate this card – all the Stampin’ Up! products you need are listed down below as well as the card cuts!

You guys remember Glamour Shots?  Like…from the 80’s?

You know – where you go in to the photo studio in sweats and a raggedy t-shirt and 3 hours later you come out with photos that look like you spent three hours getting all dolled up?

Are those even still a thing?

IF they are – then Finn STILL would not go.

No need.

He rolls out of bed in the morning with his Farrah Fawcett hair looking like he spent an hour or three in the makeup chair.

I give you…Glamourous Finn!

See what I mean?

One handsome and glamourous dude!!

Stampin’ Up! Music From The Heart Thanks

‘Sup, y’all!?  Hope your week is going well!

So – we’re almost one-third of the way thru Sale-A-Bration.  Wow.  Hard to believe!  Be sure to check out all the great shopping – hosting – and JOINING benefits that happen in Sale-A-Bration, okay?  All the deets you need are down below or over on my Stampin’ Up! Promotions page.  I’d love to have you on my Critters-N-Creatin’ Krew team – give me a holler if you have any questions!  🙂

My card today is a simple little number – barely any fussy cutting at all! – using the sweet Music From The Heart stamp set.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from this week’s CAS(E) This Sketch challenge – you can see I turned it on its head! 🙂

And the color palette is from the Inspire.Create  Challenge.

I started with a piece of Whisper White for the card front, matted on Flirty Flamingo.

From another piece of Whisper White, I cut the largest label die in the new Stitched So Sweetly Die set.

On that label, in Pretty Peacock, I stamped the sentiment from the Music From The Heart stamp set.  Next to it – allowing it to spill off the left side of the label, I added the piano image in Early Espresso.  With my Blender Pen – I lightly pulled some ink out into the image to shade and color it a little.

I stamped the piano again on a piece of scrap Whisper White and colored the heart with my Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blends Combo Pack.  Then I fussy cut the heart.

I laid the die cut sentiment label onto the card front where I wanted it and used the music notes in the stamp set to add my “music”.  I used Pretty Peacock for the heart note (with the first one overlapping the edge of the die cut) and Flirty Flamingo for the others.  Some of the eighth notes are in stamped-off-once Flirty Flamingo.  I added some little Flirty Flamingo hearts, too.

I popped the label onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Then I used a Mini Stampin’ Dimensional at the top of the fussy cut heart – and a little Liquid Glue at the bottom – and popped the heart in place.  And – that was it for the card front!

On the inside, I added a second Music From The Heart sentiment in Pretty Peacock to a Whisper White panel.  Across the bottom I added the music staff image in Flirty Flamingo, then added the treble clef in Early Espresso and a few Pretty Peacock notes.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Flirty Flamingo mat and into my Early Espresso card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got some Pretty Peacock and Flirty Flamingo musical notes on the front…

…and the full musical “score” on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I love the gentle punniness of the sentiments in the Music From The Heart stamp set – and the notes and staff and and and….well.  I love it all!  I hope you like!

If you’d like to recreate this card – all the Stampin’ Up! products you need are listed down below as well as the card cuts!

Stampin’ Up! Lily Pad Impressions and Tulips Sympathy Card

Well – it’s here again!  Monday!  Yeah?

Do you realize January is almost over?!?  Yikes!

My card today celebrates Sale-A-Bration (which is only around thru the end of March, remember).  I used the Lovely Lily stamp set ($50 level reward) and the Lily Pad Dies ($100 level reward), plus the simply gorgeous Lily Impressions DSP ($50 level reward).  And…I borrowed a couple of sentiments from Itty Bitty Greetings (2019-2020 AC) and Timeless Tulips (2020 Jan – Jun Mini Catalog).  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one comes from the Freshly Made Sketches challenge this week.

And I thought the TGIF inspiration challenge was fun this week, too! 🙂

I started by embossing a piece of Pretty Peacock cardstock – it’s the same size as the front of the card – in the new Stone 3D Embossing Folder (get this one bundled with the Power of Hope stamp set with a $100 order during Sale-A-Bration).  Then I adhered it with Liquid Glue to the front of my Pretty Peacock card base.

To make the angled panel, I first laid a piece of the Lily Impressions DSP across the card base.  Then I flipped it over and traced the back of the DSP so I’d know where to cut.

With the pencil line clearly visible, I cut the panel in my Paper Trimmer.

Then I adhered the panel to a piece of Flirty Flamingo card stock – lining up the two straight sides to create my “normal” mat edge.

I used my Paper Trimmer to cut off the excess card stock – eyeballing the mat size.

Then I adhered the matted panel to the card front with Liquid Glue.

For the flowers, I used Melon Mambo ink to stamp the large flower in the Lovely Lily stamp set on a piece of Whisper White card stock and one on a piece of Flirty Flamingo.  I “pulled” the ink out into the petals of both flowers using a Blender Pen.  Then I cut them both out with the die in the Lily Pad Dies set.

I also used the detailed flower die to cut a Melon Mambo flower.

The sentiment, from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set, is stamped in Melon Mambo on Flirty Flamingo and cut with the lily pad die.

I layered the flowers and the sentiment using Liquid Glue.  The sentiment is tucked into the flowers – hiding the little “dent” that makes it a lily pad.  So…it’s just an oval!

I wound a piece of So Saffron twine from the Metallics Baker’s Twine and Sequins combo pack ($50 level reward) around my fingers five times, then tied another piece around it to create a “bow”.  Which I adhered to the card front with a Glue Dot.

Then I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the flowers/sentiment over the top of the bow.

I added some Melon Mambo gems from the Noble Peacock Rhinestones and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a sentiment from Timeless Tulips in Melon Mambo to a Whisper White panel.  In the bottom corner, I stamped the big flower and used my Blender Pen to pull ink into the petals.  Then I added a few Old Olive gems from Noble Peacock.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Flirty Flamingo mat and into the Pretty Peacock card base and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another Lovely Lily flower in Melon Mambo on the front…

…and a little more of the gorgeous Lily Impressions DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  The Lovely Lily stamp set and coordinating Lily Pad Dies are the perfect complement to the gorgeous Lily Impressions DSP.

That paper is SO pretty – you can SEE the brush strokes in the oil “paint”!  Stunning!  I hope you like!

If you want to recreate this card – all the Stampin’ Up! products you need are listed down below.  With a $200 order – you could get the Lovely Lily stamp set, the Lily Pad Dies and the Lily Impressions DSP for free!

Finn Fan Fix


So – apparently “the look” is in Finn’s DNA.

He gets it from his mom, Bonnie.

He gets it from his dad, BJ.

He definitely comes by it honestly!

No food shall hit the floor un-noticed!

Stampin’ Up! Six Ladybugs and a Flower for The Paper Players

Happy Sunday, y’all!  Hope your weekend is going well.  I see a lot of posts in my Facebook feed from friends who are under a ton of snow.  Hopefully you’re all safe and warm! 😉  We finally have some of that yellow-orange stuff from that big yellow ball in the sky.  No telling how long it will stick around – but…it’s not doing much for the temperature, I have to say.  On the other hand, we CAN see ALL the ground with no WHITE stuff.  So…my complaining is tempered by gratitude for that, at least!

I’ve got another fun challenge for you today from the Paper Players – I hope that you’ll come on over and play!  It’s a cool sketch, as you’ll see in a second.

If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video, I appreciate you spending some of your weekend with me!  If not, but you’d like to see the replay on YouTube…here ’tis!

I decided to pull the sweet Little Ladybug set out for this one, along with its coordinating Ladybug Dies – which you’ll be able to pick up on 4 Feb.  Take a look-see:

Finn Fan Fix


This is a non-Finny Finn Fan Fix!

This is a seedling update!

So…I planted two BioDomes last week – veggies and flowers.

I placed the two BioDomes under the grow light.

16 hours on.  8 hours off.

And then – carefully peeeeered into the domes every day.

Every day….nothing.

Not surprising – a watched seed never grows.

Or…something like that! LOL

But then.  THEN!  Yesterday…..lookee lookee!!

See ’em?!? Plants!  Little plants sticking their little plant-heads up!

According to my careful planting chart – those are marigolds.  Which I’m growing to plant in and among my Ancho Magnifico Peppers and my tomatoes.

Happy dance happy dance!

See?  Even Finny is thrilled beyond measure!

Stampin’ Up! Seasonal Wreaths and Scrolls Sneak Peek

Good morning!  Before I get going – let me remind you that today is the day that the Trimmer Blades will be available again – starting at 10am Mountain Time!!  I’ll TRY to be at the computer to send a quick “HEY IT’S LIVE” post…but…set your alarms and head to the Online Store right on time (or even a little early!) and start ordering your own (Item #126995)!  Three packs – that’s the max!

My card for you today is another Sneak Peek from the 2019 Holiday Catalog – which is just over a week away! This one uses the Seasonal Wreaths stamp set.  Something cool about this set is that it coordinates with the All-Around Wreaths dies – which you can get bundled with the Tidings All Around stamp set!  Yep – one die set…TWO stamp sets that coordinate!  Winner winner! For this card, I also used the new Stylish Scroll Embossing Folder.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one comes from this week’s challenge over at The Paper Players.

And the colors are from the Fab Friday color challenge.

I started with a piece of Whisper White card stock that I embossed in the new Stylish Scroll Embossing Folder (coming 4 Sept – find it in the Spooktacular Bash Suite!) and then matted on Blueberry Bushel for the card front.

I used the Stitched Rectangle Dies to cut a piece of Petal Pink paper from the Subtles 6″ x 6″ DSP and adhered it with Liquid Glue.

I cut a square of Whisper White and used my Stamparatus to stamp the wreath using the image in the Seasonal Wreaths stamp set.  I placed the stamp in the first “corner” of the square panel and stamped it in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  Then I turned the panel 1/4 turn to the right (clock-wise) and stamped again.  I did that two more times to complete the wreath!

I colored the wreath with my Light and Dark Call Me Clover and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends.  I also used my Blueberry Bushel, Call Me Clover and Grapefruit Grove Stampin’ Write Markers.

I added some faux “stitches” around the edge with my Blueberry Bushel Stampin’ Write Marker and popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The sentiment, from Seasonal Wreaths, is stamped in Blueberry Bushel on Whisper White and cut with another Stitched Rectangles Die.  I used a few Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals and Liquid Glue to adhere it to the card front.

I added a bow tied with Petal Pink 5/8″ Organdy Striped Ribbon and adhered with a Glue Dot.  A Gingham-Gala Adhesive-Backed Sequin in Grapefruit Grove and a few Pearl Basic Jewels finished it off!

On the inside, I added second sentiment from Seasonal Wreaths in Blueberry Bushel on a Whisper White panel.  In the corner, I stamped the floral bough image once in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink – coloring it as I’d done on the front.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Blueberry Bushel mat and into my Call Me Clover card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another floral bough from Seasonal Wreaths on the front…

…and some more of the Petal Pink Subtles DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  LOVE this wreath – made from four stamped images from Seasonal Wreaths!  But – there is ALSO a full wreath image in the set – and that one can be cut out with the die in the All-Around Wreaths Dies!  And – the Stylish Scroll Embossing Folder adds such a sweet and classy bit of texture! I hope you like!!

Finn Fan Fix


I have some proof that Finn has Super-Canine Powers.

So yesterday morning, the Man decided to hold the strategically superior high ground…literally…

He stared at me – looking really quite splendid! – as I peeked around the corner to take his picture.

He’s a Star.  It’s his due.

Several minutes later – with no fanfare, very little noise and no indication to him – I ever-so-stealthily went into the tack room (which he absolutely, positively could NOT see from his vantage point!) to get the peppermints for the girls.

One point two nanoseconds later…

Super ear-balls.  Super schnoozle.

Just sayin’.

Stampin’ Up! Toile Christmas Cardinal Sneak Peek

Good Monday!

And nope – NOT an oxymoron!  At least…not for me.

Sorry – that was mean!  But…Monday has no effect on me anymore!

Well – except if I need to go to Walmart, I know that one of these next five days is the day to do it!  Don’t have to go on the WEEKEND anymore!  Whoo-hoo!

My card today showcases some of the goodies you can get for a tidy little savings if you purchase my Bundle #6 Toile & Wreaths!  I used the Toile Christmas stamp set and bundled Christmas Cardinal, plus some gorgeous Toile Tidings DSP!  Take a look-see!

I took some design ideas from the samples in the 2019 Holiday Catalog and the layout is from this week’s CAS(E) This Sketch challenge.

I started with some pretty Real Red Toile Tidings DSP, the same size as the card front, adhered with Liquid Glue.

The next layer is a Garden Green check design – also from the Toile Tidings DSP, matted on Real Red and adhered to the card front with Liquid Glue.  Then there’s a smaller Very Vanilla panel, matted on Real Red and stuck on with Liquid Glue.

I stuck a piece of new Real Red 1″ Ruched Ribbon (2019 Holiday Catalog!) across the card front with a couple of Glue Dots.

On a seperate piece of Very Vanilla, I stamped the branch and Cardinal images in Basic Gray Ink, using my Stamparatus.  I cut them with their dies in the Christmas Cardinal die set.

For the branch – I used Light and Dark Crumb Cake and Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends to color the branch and leaves.  I picked up Real Red ink from the lid of the ink pad with my Blender Pen to color the berries.  Then I adhered it over the ribbon with Liquid Glue.

I colored the Cardinal by using my Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush to pick up Real Red ink from the lid and I used Mango Melody the same way for his beak.  I popped him onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The sentiment, from Toile Christmas, is stamped in Early Espresso on Crumb Cake and cut with the Christmas Cardinal die that matches it – then it’s adhered with Liquid Glue.

I cut a few leaves from Garden Green – with dies in the Christmas Cardinal set –  and adhered them with more Liquid Glue.  Then I tied a little bow of Garden Green 3/8″ Double-Stitched Ribbon (2019 Holiday Catalog!) and adhered it with a Glue Dot.  I added a few Garden Green Toile Tidings Glitter Enamel Dots and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped a second sentiment in Early Espresso on a Very Vanilla panel.  I also added a branch – in Basic Gray, then colored it like I did on the front.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Real Red mat and into my Crumb Cake card base and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got another Toile Christmas branch on the front…

…and some more of the pretty Toile Tidings DSP on the envelope flap!

Et Voila!  How gorgeous is that die cut Toile Christmas Cardinal?  Especially all shimmery from the Clear Wink of Stella?!?  I love the coordinating Toile Tidings DSP, too!  I hope you like!

My Special Bundle #6: Toile & Wreaths Bundle – is perfect if this card struck your fancy! 🙂

…and a free bonus gift – Toile & Tidings Glitter Enamel Dots!

Stampin’ Up! Paper Pumpkin News and….a little Blog Candy! :)

Morning, y’all!  Hope your week is successfully winding down!  Mine is.  I mean…I think it is?  I am really having trouble keeping track of the days.  I keep thinking it’s the weekend – and being really surprised when there’s a lot of traffic on the road at 4 in the afternoon.  I’m actually kind of surprised at how disorienting NOT working is – guess I figured that, since I worked at home for so many years…it would feel the the same.  It’s totally not! 😉

So – the topic for today is Paper Pumpkin – and…Blog Candy!  Will that be okay?

I got my Gift of Fall Paper Pumpkin and then I bought the cool Add-on, too.  And I saw so many folks talking about how wonderful it is!  So…I went to open it up and put it all together.  And then…I thought…why don’t you save it – and give it away?? 🙂

That seemed like a really splendid idea – so…that’s what I’m doing!

I’m giving away a Gift of Fall Paper Pumpkin…check it out right here in the Unboxing Video…

…and an add-on bundle (so the winner can make cards, too!).

But – before we get to the How-Can-I-Win-This-Awesome-Candy part of the program – let’s take a little look at what’s coming in September from Paper Pumpkin!  It’s a “hand”-made Halloween Kit that is going to be a chillingly good time!

Image may contain: text

This one will let you whip up 20 Halloween-themed, food safe-treat boxes – in Basic Black, Gorgeous Grape, Pumpkin Pie and Whisper White!  Sounds pretty fun to me!  And – who knows?  Maybe there’ll even be an add-on bundle like this month!  Fingers crossed! 🙂

Here’s what you need to do to get the September Kit.

Get.  Signed.  Up.  By 10 Sept!  Easy peasy.

If you are NOT an ACTIVE Paper Pumpkin Subscriber…

You can sign up for a subscription where you’re billed monthly for your kit – click here to get started.  

Or you can…do a Prepaid Subscription!  To see the options for prepaid subscriptions in my online store, click here.

So – here’s the thing.  You MUST be an ACTIVE Paper Pumpkin Subscriber by 10 September to get this kit!!  If you subscribe AFTER 10 September – you are going to get the October kit!  Make sense? 🙂

Okay – I expect to see y’all signing up right away – cuz that looks like a fun one for Halloween!!

Now – on to the candy!  The Blog Candy, that is!

To enter to win this Gift Of Fall kit and coordinating Add-on Bundle, all you need to do is leave a comment on this blog post by 5pm Eastern Time on Tuesday, 27 Aug 19 and tell me your favorite new BUNDLE in the 2019 Holiday Catalog!  There are TWENTY-FIVE bundles in this catalog – which one do YOU love the most!?!

Have a great Friday, y’all! 🙂
