Bonus Days

Stamps-N-Lingers 2020 Aug – Dec Mini Catalog Shares are Open!

 

The new 2020 Aug – Dec Mini Catalog (formerly known as the Holiday Catalog) is in the hands of UPS and on the way to me – which means it’ll be on the way to YOU shortly!   Well – it will be if you’re one of my customers already.  Give me a shout if you’re not sure whether you’re on my mailing list, okay? 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Best Buffalo Plaid and Daisy Lane Card

Good morning!  Hope the week is going well!

Bit of business news….for all my Catalog Share customers – if you’re expecting a few more embellishments to complete your shares…they’re on the way!  I dropped them at the Post Office on my way to the dentist yesterday.  So…yeah!!  And – if you’re wondering if I’m doing Shares for the 2020 Aug – Dec Mini – the answer is yes!  Look for those tomorrow, okay? 🙂

My card today is a bright little number – anchored by the sweet Daisy Lane stamp set and both Daisy punches.  I added a plaid background with the Buffalo Plaid stamp and the Best Plaid Builder Dies.  Take a look-see!

The layout and color scheme for this one is for the FUSION challenge this week!

I started by using my Stamparatus to stamp the Buffalo Check image in Balmy Blue on a Whisper White panel.  The Stamparatus is absolutely the way to go with these big background stamps, y’all! 🙂

Using one of the dies in the Best Plaid Builder Dies, I cut out a Pear Pizzazz grid, that I adhered to the panel with Liquid Glue, and trimmed the excess with my snips.  Then I matted the whole thing on Pear Pizzazz for the card front.

I used my Banner Triple Punch to cut banner ends in a Whisper White strip, then stamped the Daisy Lane sentiment in Balmy Blue.  Finally, I embossed the banner in my Subtle 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I stamped the large flower from Daisy Lane twice in Daffodil Delight on Whisper White and punched them with the Daisy Punch.  I did the same – once – with the smaller flower, punching it out with the Medium Daisy Punch.

I pulled out the awesome Sunflower Dies and cut a few leaves – two solid and two detailed – in Pear Pizzazz.  I adhered these together with Liquid Glue.  I also cut a few Whisper White branches.

I lightly curled the leaves on my daisies and adhered them together with Liquid Glue.  Then I build the collage!

I added a cool Gold Hoop with a single Glue Dot under the right side (where it’s hidden by the daisy), then I layered the leaves and branches – sort of weaving them in and around the hoop – adhering them with Liquid Glue.

I added the stacked daisy with Liquid Glue.  A few Gold Glitter Enamel Dots finished off the card front!

On the inside, I added a second Daisy Lane sentiment in Balmy Blue to a Whisper White panel.  Then I stamped the small daisy in Daffodil Delight across the bottom.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Pear Pizzazz mat and into my Daffodil Delight card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more of the small Daisy Lane flowers across the front in Daffodil Delight…

…and a little Brights 6″ x 6″ DSP in Daffodil Delight on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I love the Daisy Lane set…and Buffalo Check – especially with the added “bump” from the Best Plaid Builder die cut – is so cool!   And, of course, the Sunflower Dies.  Even without the big “star” of the show (uhm…you know…the SUNFLOWER??).  I hope you like! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! 2020 Aug-Dec Mini Catalog Love of Leaves Sneak Peek!

Hey, y’all – happy (?) Monday!  I added the question mark just in case you’re not thrilled for the week to get back underway!

My Monday is likely going to be pretty average – with the exception of having to go to the dentist this afternoon for a crown prep. Bleh.

Thank goodness for nitrous, am I right?!?  Sooo much nicer than the suck-it-up-buttercup of military dentistry!  Novocaine?  We got that.  Gas that makes you not care when we GIVE you the shot?

uhm…nope. 😉

So this is much better all the way around!

My card today is a sneak peek of a wunnermus new bundle in the 2020 Aug – Dec Mini Catalog (formerly known as the Holiday Catalog) – I took inspiration from one of the pretty samples in the catalog!  You’re going to be able to get these on 4 August!  It’s the Love of Leaves stamp set which will be bundled with the amaze-balls Stitched Leaves Dies that I set atop the gorgeous new Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP.  Take a look-see:

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

And – while it’s not really over-the-top feminine, for me it reads as a card for a woman.  So…the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge seemed perfect!

I started with a piece of subtle paper from the stunning new Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP that I ran thru the die cutting machine with the big stitched die in the Stitched Leaves Die set.  Look what it did!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to an Early Espresso mat.

Then I stamped some leaves from the Love of Leaves stamp set and stamped them on Very Vanilla in Bumble Bee, Crumb Cake and Mint Macaron.

I cut all the leaves with their matching dies in the bundled Stitched Leaves set.  Look what THEY leave behind!!

So…be ready to make projects using the negative space on this set, y’all!  And be sure to check out the stitching on the leaves – looooooovvvveee!!

I used Liquid Glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals to add the leaves to the card front.

I tied a little bow with some Copper 1/8″ Grosgrain Ribbon (from the new Basket Weave and Metallic Ribbon Combo Pack (also available on 4 Aug with the arrival of the new catalog!) and adhered it with a Glue Dot.

I stamped a Love of Leaves sentiment in Early Espresso on a strip of Very Vanilla, snipped banner ends and popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a few Bumble Bee 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dots and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a second Love of Leaves sentiment in Early Espresso on a Very Vanilla panel.  Over top, I added a leaf in stamped-off-once Mint Macaron.

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

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got another Mint Macaron leaf (full strength) on the front…

…and more of the Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Just go ahead and write it down right this second.  Love of Leaves.  Stitched Leaves Dies.

You might as well plan on ordering this bundle first jump out of the box on 4 August.  And – don’t forget the stunning Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP!

And – not for nuthin…want it right now?  Well…new demonstrators can select from the 2020 Aug – Dec Mini to fill their Starter Kit when they join now!  How cool is that?!?  Let me know if you want to join the team – I’d be tickled to have you on board!

Stampin’ Up! Pampered Pets in Grace’s Garden

Well.  Here we are. Friday!  And – for some of you – today’s a holiday!  Cuz tomorrow we celebrate the birth of our nation!  I hope everyone has some plans – we’re going to TRY to go to our friend’s on Sunday for some social-distanced socializing!  Fingers crossed we get our taxes done by Sunday so we can make that happen!  I feel the need for a hamburger on the grill with friends!  And deviled eggs!  Yum!  And I’ve been collecting some dessert recipes that I’m itching to make when I have more-than-one-mouth to feed!

Speaking of taxes (look back a few sentences – I DID mention taxes!) – I am SO sorry that I wasn’t able to get together with y’all yesterday!  But – the COVID-push-back is almost over and…yep.  The taxman cometh!  So…gots to do what we gots to do!

My friend Jan – also one of the newest members of my Critters-N-Creatin’ Krew team! – came over on Wednesday and we made the card that I was going to make for you yesterday.  In fact, she was going to come over and sit in!  Maybe next week!

The card is a pet-sympathy card – using the Grace’s Garden stamp set and coordinating Garden Gateway Dies, plus the Pampered Pets bundle and a perfect sentiment from Peaceful Moments.  Take a look-see:

This was really a collaboration – we both had some ideas about what the card should look like – and I think we made our vision happen!

We started with a piece of Crumb Cake that we stamped with the Peaceful Moments sentiment in Tuxedo Black.  Then we embossed it in the Brick 3D Embssing Folder and matted it on Basic Black for the card front.

Then…we started stamping and die-cutting and coloring flowers!  Yes – it’s a LOT quicker to create a gorgeous cottage garden with paper and ink than actually planting flowers!!  🙂

We stamped all the Grace’s Garden images in Tuxedo Black and cut them out with their matching dies in the Garden Gateway Die set.  We also cut the wunnermus gate itself from Whisper White!

I set Jan to dimensionalizing the back of the archway – cutting Mini Dimensionals in half to fit.  We colored the flowers with Stampin’ Blends and Stampin’ Write Markers in Highland Heather, Granny Apple Green, Daffodil Delight and Rococo Rose.

Then?  We built the garden!  We added flowers with Liquid Glue and Dimensionals.  We got almost everything laid on and then…I looked at her and said…do you think it maybe needs…a bow?!? 😉

She said – I WAS JUST THINKING THAT!

And that was the day that Jan was introduced to the transformative effect of….the double-loop Linen Thread bow! 😉

We adhered it with a Glue Dot – then popped on the last couple of flowers with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  A single Rhinestone Basic Jewel finished off the card front.

On the inside, we masked off part of the sentiment in Pampered Pets and stamped just “Always in Your Heart” in Tuxedo Black on a Whisper White panel.  Then – work with me here – we cut the fuzzy dog from Vellum, using the die in the Pets Die set.  See?  He’s there but NOT there but always in their hearts. 🙂

We adhered him with a single Glue Dot – then we popped a heart over the Glue Dot.  I cut the heart with the Dog Punch Punch and Jan colored it with the Light Balmy Blue Stampin’ Blend (her friend had a shaggy boy dog) and then we swiped Clear Wink of Stella over that.

I used Stampin’ Seal to adhere the panel to a Basic Black mat and into my Crumb Cake card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

The Whisper White Medium Envelope got the Grace’s Garden flowers on the front…

…and also on the envelope flap!

Et Voila!  This card – made as a pet sympathy card – could easily be a not-pet sympathy card, right?  Grace’s Garden and the matching Garden Gateway Dies, gives a quaint, cottage-y feel to any card.

And is perfect with the sentiment from Peaceful Moments.

If you stopped there…you’d have a very nice sympathy card for anyone.  Add in the Pampered Pets bundle and…boom.  Pet sympathy card!!

I hope you like!

Tax day.

No – not Tax Day – like…not due today.

Nope – yesterday was tax preparation day for us.

Quite possibly my least favorite day of the year.  Well – least favorite week.  It takes us a minute….

Serious – I’d rather go to the dentist.  At least they give me the “good stuff”! 😉

Katy helped.

Finn helped.

It’s possible – maybe – that their definition of “help” is different than mine… 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Fields of Flowers for Every Season for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hey y’all – it’s Thursday, so it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!!  Today’s a great color challenge – 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!

We have got one of the best groups of new In Colors right now, don’t you think? I love them!

Well  – okay.  Magenta Madness is maybe more…”like-a-lot” than love for me!  😉

But – what happens when you put them together using the Flowers for Every Season Memories & More Card Pack and the Field of Flowers bundle?  A lot – especially if you throw in sentiments from Well Said and the Well Written Dies.  Take a look-see:

And here’s our color challenge!

I’m also playing along with the FabFriday color challenge…

I started with one of the panels in the Flowers For Every Season Memories & More Card Pack, trimmed it down a bit and adhered it to a Cinnamon Cider mat.

On a smaller Whisper White panel, I stamped the grass/flower stem image from the Field of Flowers stamp set in Just Jade.

I stamped the little flowers image (there are 6 flowers on the single stamp!) in Misty Moonlight and again in Bumble Bee on Whisper White.  I punched them all with the bundled Confetti Flower Punch.  Then I adhered the flowers here and there on the panel with Liquid Glue.

I stamped the large flowers in Magenta Madness – twice – and fussy cut them.  I popped them onto the panel with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut the sentiment three times from Misty Moonlight with the die in the Well Written Dies and adhered them in a stack with Liquid Glue.

In Misty Moonlight, I stamped the single word “Happy” from the Well Said stamp set in Misty Moonlight.  Then I adhered the die cut sentiment with Liquid Glue.

Finally – I stamped the totes-adorbs dragonfly in Just Jade a few times here and there.

I matted the panel on Cinnamon Cider using Stampin’ Seal and popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  A few Rhinestone Basic Jewels in the small flower centers finished off the card front!

On the inside, I stamped the grasses twice across the bottom of a Whisper White panel in Just Jade.  Then I added some small flowers in Misty Moonlight and Bumble Bee and some Just Jade dragonflies.

I used Stampin’ Seal to adhere the panel to a Cinnamon Cider mat and into my Misty Moonlight cardbase (from the Flowers for Every Season Memories & More Cards & Envelopes), popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

The matching Flowers for Every Season Memories & More Envelopes got more Field of Flowers images on the front…

…and I didn’t need to do anything to the flap cuz…the inside is already decorated!  Score!

Et Voila!  The Field of Flowers stamp set is one of my favorites in the 2020-2022 Annual Catalog and it’s so fun that it has the bundled Confetti Flowers Punch!

And – of course! – the Flowers for Every Season Memories & More Card Pack is amaze-balls!!  So much color and gorgeous floral images!!

I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Gorgeous Posies Project Kit Revealed!

Hey guys!  Hope your week is going well!  I mean – it’s HAWWWWMP Day – so…at least you’re topping the hill, right?!? 🙂

Been busy times here – Stampin’ Up!-wise and all!  Pre-order for the new 2020 Aug – Dec Mini Catalog for us demonstrators.  Whoo-hoo!!  I also ordered lots of copies of the catalog to send out to all my customer peeps!  If you’re a customer of mine (ordered at least $50 in the past 12 months) then one of my copies already has your name on it.  I’ll turn them back around and get them mailed out just as soon as they get to me!  If you’re not my customer, but would like to be, then head on over to my Online Store and let’s get started! 🙂

Other big news – and more evidence that timing is everything!? BONUS DAYS!!  Yep – it’s back and it means it’s time to start earning bonus coupons!  You spend in July and you SAVE in August!  All the deets are down the way a bit.

You might decide to get started with…one of the awesome kits in the new catalog.  This group of kits is really wonderful y’all – with gorgeous images, useful sentiments and stunning colors!  One of them – the Gorgeous Posies Project Kit – is particularly wunnermus!  I put it together quick-like-a-bunny the other day – and…wow.  Take a look-see:

YES!!  It comes with that amazingly pretty box – complete with delicate elastic closure and fully decorated interior!

With a project kit – you buy the stamp set separately – so, in this case, the Gorgeous Posies stamp set.

 

You’ll also bring your inks and adhesives to the table!

When you open the kit – you’ll find the card bases, card fronts, die cut flowers/leaves/sentiment banners, beautiful envelopes, ribbon and twine – enough to make 16 cards!

It makes sympathy and get well cards…

…as well as celebration and thank you cards!

Pretty nice, huh??

I left all the insides blank – that way I can add another sentiment or maybe some flowers when I need the card!   I know – that’s genius, right?!? 😉

The Gorgeous Posies Project Kit is a GREAT kit for new stampers to get their fingers inky and begin to discover the joys of stamping.  But it’s also a wonderful kit for more experienced card-ers and…what a wonderful gift it would make – either already assembled or…perhaps as a fun project for quiet times in the air conditioning!!  The box is plenty big enough to add the ink pads, a D-block, and adhesives – and…it’s all ready to go!  I hope you like

The kit, stamp set and needed additional items are all listed below! 🙂

So – this has been the hottest and muggiest week of the year.

We should be inside in the AC.

Okay – we WERE on Tuesday.  But…across the weekend and on Monday, we did this:

Mixed sand.  With rocks.  And the compost.

While we did that….Finn did this…

Yeah – abnormally large brains and opposable thumbs wasted on the humans, for sure! 🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️

Stampin’ Up! Tidings All Around Wreaths for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hey y’all – it’s Thursday, so it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!!  Today’s Hop is a sketch challenge – and I’m excited to see what everyone comes up with –  I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop!

I went back to the Toile Tidings Suite for this Sneak Peek today – this time…using the Tidings All-Around stamp set and bundled All Around Wreath Dies!  Plus some of that wunnermusly gorgeous Toile Tidings DSP.  Take a look-see:

And here’s our sketch – you can see I turned it on its side! (Lay your left ear on your left shoulder – you’ll see it!)

I started with one of the pretty Garden Green paper from the Toile Tidings DSP, matting it on Soft Suede for the card front.  Next up is a piece of Very Vanilla that I embossed in the new Winter Knit 3D Embossing Folder (coming in the 2019 Holiday Catalog), matted it on Soft Suede and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I used a few Glue Dots to adhere a short length of 5/8″ Burlap Trim to the embossed panel.

Then I used the more intricate wreath die in the All Around Wreath Die set to cut a Garden Green and a Vellum Card Stock wreath.  I used a few Glue Dots to adhere the Vellum wreath to the Garden Green Wreath.  Then I used Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop the wreath onto the embossed panel.

I cut two Soft Suede branches and two Garden Green boughs –  both in the All Around Wreath Die set – and used Liquid Glue to adhere them to the top of the wreath.

Three little Toile Tidings Glitter Enamel Dots at the top – and a Burlap Ribbon bow adhered with a Glue Dot – finished off the wreath.

I stamped the Toile Tidings sentiment in Real Red on Very Vanilla and used a Stitched Rectangles Die to cut it out.  It was too long – so…I ran it half-way thru my Die Cutting Machine, then moved the die and ran it half way thru from the other direction.  That let me make a custom-sized Stitched Rectangle!

I popped the sentiment onto the wreath with Stampin’ Dimensionals – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped a second sentiment in Real Red on Very Vanilla, then added the large wreath image in Garden Green.  I added some Real Red berries, too!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Soft Suede mat and into my Real Red card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got the Tidings All-Around wreath in Garden Green and Real Red on the front…

…and more of the Garden Green Toile Tidings DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I think this is one of my favorite Suites – and this Tidings All-Around stamp set, with its bundled All Around Wreath Dies – is certainly a showcase (and show STOPPER) piece of the suite!  I hope you like!

And – are you getting ready?!?  There’s less than a WEEK before you can order from the amaze-balls new 2019 Holiday Catalog! 😉

Now that you’ve seen my card, take a minute to hop thru all our projects today  If you click on the Next Blog button, you’ll go right to Kristi’s page. And you can just click on the names below to go direct to all the blogs!

There’s not really a story or a little funny to go along with these pictures.

Wayne was searching for fur-stickers.  When you’re covered in fuzzy Velcro, those are a perpetual problem.  The struggle is real.

I was on the sofa and looked over and…the expression on the Man’s face and the position he was in was….just too sweet.  It NEEDED to be captured.

So….here ya go!

You’re welcome! 😉
