Stampin’ Up! Sweet Little Stockings Santa Paws for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good morning, y’all!  It’s Thursday – which means it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!!  We’ve got a color challenge to work with 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!

When I saw the colors, I figured I’d pull out the Sweet Little Stockings Bundle and the coordinating Sweet Stockings DSP.  And so…I did!  Take a look-see:

And – here’s our color challenge!

And I pulled from the Global Design Project sketch challenge for the layout.

I started with some Cherry Cobbler paper from the Sweet Stockings DSP that I matted on Bumble Bee cardstock for the card front.

I cut another pattern with a Stitched So Sweetly die  – then I adhered that to the card front with Liquid Glue.  Note: I used the Stitched So Sweetly Dies for two pieces on this card!

I cut a Basic White piece using a Hippo & Friends Die

…and adhered it with more Liquid Glue.

I looped a length of Bumble Bee 1/4″ Gingham Ribbon around in a loose…bow….using Glue Dots to adhere it in place.

Using a die in the Stockings Die set, I cut out a Christmas stocking printed on one of the designs in the Sweet Stockings DSP, then I adhered it over the ribbon with Liquid Glue.

I stamped the little kitty face from Sweet Little Stockings in Basic Gray on a piece of Basic White.  Then I used my Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Combo – and a smidge of Dark Petal Pink Stampin’ Blend (inside her ear-balls) to color her.  I cut her with the matching die in the Stockings Die set.

I used the leafy-branch die in the Stockings Dies, I cut two Old Olive branches – and adhered them to the white die cut with Liquid Glue. I added some Cherry Cobbler Matt Decorative Dots.

I stamped the Sweet Little Stockings sentiment in Bumble Bee on a piece of Basic White and cut it with the next-to-smallest Stitched So Sweetly rectangle die.

I popped the sentiment over the ribbon with Stampin’ Dimensionals and then used a single Dimensional (under the top of the kitty’s head) and a little Liquid Glue to add the die cut kitty head.

I added an Old Olive Matte Decorative Dot and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped a second Sweet Little Stockings sentiment in Bumble Bee ink on a piece of Basic White.  Then I added the little kitty in Basic Gray – colored as I’d done on the front.  I added a couple of Cherry Cobbler Matte Decorative Dots.

I used Stampin’ Seal to adhere the panel to a Bumble Bee mat and into my Old Olive card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Basic White Medium Envelope got the Sweet Little Stockings kitty on the front…

…and more of the Sweet Stockings DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This is such a sweet suite.  The critters in the Sweet Little Stockings stamp set are so much fun and I LOVE that the Stockings Dies cut out those stamped images AND several of the printed images on the Sweet Stockings DSP!  I love when SU gives us dies that cut DSP images!  Makes for quick and easy decorating!! 🙂

I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Whimsical Christmas Trees Let Your Heart Be Light

Good morning and welcome to another week.  You’ll be glad to know that Finn had a great Gotcha-Day weekend.  Yesterday he got to ride to two DIFFERENT Home Depots – and go in BOTH times!  It was a dog’s dream!  Even the slightly rude dog in the second store couldn’t dampen the happiness of my kid!  I will say though that, whatever that handsome husky said…it was…not nice!  Finn got serious FAST!  He didn’t start it but…he was for sure going to FINISH it!  Whatever HE said back shut that other dog up but QUICK! 😉  All of which makes my “no sniffing or greeting on a leash” rule even more sacred!

So – my card today takes us back to Christmas (which is – yes…only SEVENTY days away! 😳) and the wunnermus Whimsical Trees bundle and coordinating Whimsy & Wonder Specialty DSP (one of my fave DSPs of all time – whoda thunk it?!?).  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one comes from the Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge this week.

I started with some snowflake-strewn paper from the Whimsy & Wonder Specialty DSP that I matted on Misty Moonlight for the card front.

Then I used a Rectangle Stitched Die to cut some Mossy Meadow design DSP – that I adhered to the card front with Liquid Glue.

Note: this graphic shows the different Rectangle Stitched Dies I used on this card!

I used Stampin’ Seal to adhere two lengths of Blushing Bride 3/8″ Frayed Grosgrain Ribbon to the card front

I cut another piece of the Whimsy & Wonder Specialty DSP (the striped design) with a Stitched Rectangle Die and popped it over the ribbons with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Using Liquid Glue, I adhered a Wonderful Snowflakes embellishment to the striped DSP.

There are two super-cute tree dies in the Christmas Trees die set – and I used them to cut two (one of each size) from Misty Moonlight cardstock and one of the larger ones from Mint Macaron.   I also stamped the small tree from Whimsical Trees in Mint Macaron on Basic White and cut it with its matching die from the Christmas Trees set.

I adhered the trees to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I stamped the Whimsical Trees sentiment in Misty Moonlight on Basic White and cut it with the smallest, narrow die in the Stitched Rectangle Die set (see the graphic).  I popped this over the little collage with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I tied a little silver bow from the twine in the Simply Elegant Trim pack and adhered it with a dab of Liquid Glue.  Then I added some Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped a second Whimsical Trees sentiment in Misty Moonlight on Basic White.  I added the little tree in the corner in Mint Macaron and gave it a Champagne Rhinestone “star”.

I used Stampin’ Seal to adhere the panel to a Misty Moonlight panel and into my Mint Macaron card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Basic White Medium Envelope got the Mint Macaron Whimsical Trees tree on the front…

…and more of the Whimsy & Wonder Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – I LOVE this Whimsy & Wonder Specialty DSP – and this layout really let me use a lot of it!  The Whimsical Trees stamp set – with the bundled Christmas Trees die set – is so fun!  I love the images and the sweet, delicate sentiments!  And the dies even include GARLAND dies for the trees. Cool!

I hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix 

So…the other night…I get back to the house – Finn had beat me (that happens a lot).

I see…SOMETHING…sticking out of his mouth.

I stop well short and attempt to discern what the SOMETHING is.

Too far away.

Had to get closer.

Is it…a mouse?  A…gulp…snake?

After much squinting – all while saying “no…STAY…noooooSTAY….nooooooooooSTAAAAAAAY!!” a lot…

…I identified the SOMETHING.

A horse hoof paring.

Not sure where he found it, cuz it’s been a minute since the shoer was here.

But…I was SO happy that the SOMETHING was not a…living…gift!

Stampin’ Up! Last Day to Enter for Blog Candy and Happy Gotcha Day, Finn!

Good morning, y’all – happy Saturday! Now – usually, I’d give you a sneak peek of the card I am planning to make with you this evening.

Which would mean I’d need to HAVE a card to sneak peek.  But – here’s the thing.  I did something to my back yesterday morning.  No idea what.  Might just have been my parts realizing they’re 60?  I dunno.  I took a Flexeril and some Ibuprofen and then got in the only spot that didn’t hurt.  Bed.

I discovered that Flexeril has the ‘benefit” of making me sleep all day, is totally crafty-mojo-sucking….and does little-to-nothing for my back.

The whole thing ended up with me NOT making a card yesterday.  🙁

That said – I am ASSUMING that things will go as they have in the past and I’ll find the pain has subsided as quickly as it came on when I get moving today.  Which means that I WILL get a card made and I WILL be live on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page this evening at 7pm Eastern.

In the meantime..wanted to remind you that this is Happy 5th Gotcha Day for the Finn-man!!

Calgary Humane Society on Twitter: "Happy Gotcha Day 🐾 Gotcha Day celebrates the day a new family member was added by adoption. We are SO grateful for our amazing adopters and welcoming

Stampin’ Up! Love, Santa Tag Kit Alternative Card Project and…Blog Candy!!

Well – Happy Happy Hawwwmp Day!!  What do you call a camel with no humps?

Humphree, of course! 😉

That joke has absolutely positively NOTHING to do with the project I’m sharing with you today!

Stampin’ Up! has some amazing kits and they recently released a brand new All-Inclusive Kit called the Love, Santa Tag Kit!  And – it has matching treat bags, too.  Cuz…tags and treat bags just go together like peanut butter and jelly!

I picked up a couple right away and they arrived over the weekend.  So I pulled one of the kits out and put it together quick as a bunny.

No.  Really – it went together really quickly and it is UBER cute!

Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Sparkle of the Season Christmas Card

Good morning and happy Tuesday.  I always think of Tuesday as sort of an “orphan day”.  Not so bleh as Monday.  Not so awesome as Friday.  Wednesday has its HAWWWMP.   Thursday is Friday-eve.  Poor Tuesday.  Just sorta…meh! 😉

So – to cheer up Tuesday – and you! – I’ve got a pretty Christmas card to share with you today and…a little sneaky peek.  Can you find it?  I used Peaceful Place Specialty DSP as a monochromatic backdrop to a Seasonal Swirls Die cut wreath and a simple Sparkle of the Season sentiment.  Take a look-see:
