Stamps-N-Lingers Snowflake Splendor Sneak Peek 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 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!

When I saw the colors this week, I first thought…”ocean”.  So I headed to the Whale Done bundle and Whale of a Time DSP.  But THEN….I thought…SNOW!  So, I totally pivoted and went for the new Snowflake Splendor Suite goodies in the Aug – Dec 2020 Mini Catalog (available to customers on 4 Aug!).  Take a look-see:

 

And here’s our oceany/snowflakey color challenge this week (I picked Balmy Blue for my fourth color)!

I used the sketch side of the current FUSION challenge for the layout.

I started with a piece of Pool Party paper from the Snowflake Splendor DSP and I embossed it in the Winter Snow Embossing Folder (coming on 4 Aug), then I matted it on Pacific Point for the card front.

Next, using the smallest square Stitched Shapes Dies, I cut 12 squares from a different paper in the Snowflake Splendor DSP.  Using Liquid Glue, I adhered them in a grid on the card front.

Using Stampin’ Seal, I adhered a few loops of new Snowflake Splendor 1/4″ Ribbon (also coming on 4 Aug).

With the So Many Snowflakes dies – the MOST wunnermus die set bundled with the Snowflake Wishes stamp set in the suite – I cut some Whisper White snowflakes and some Balmy Blue Glimmer Paper (loooooove this!!!).  I adhered them here, there and everywhere on the card front with Liquid Glue.

On a strip of Whisper White, in Just Jade ink, I stamped the Snowflake Wishes sentiment.  I snipped banner-ends with my Paper Snips and popped the banner onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added some Blue Adhesive-Backed Gems (part of the suite and available on 4 Aug) and some Pool Party gems from the Holiday Rhinestones (available right now in the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog).  And that was it for the card front!

On the inside, I stamped a second sentiment from Snowflake Wishes in Just Jade on a Whisper White panel.  I added some stamped snowflakes in Pool Party and Balmy Blue, and adhered a die cut Balmy Blue Glimmer Paper snowflake.  I added some Blue Adhesive-Backed Gems and Holiday Rhinestones, just cuz I could!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Pacific Point mat and into my Just Jade card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Snowflake Wishes snowflakes on the front…

…and a little more Snowflake Splendor DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Y’all – we’ve had a lot of snowflake bundles – with stamp sets and snowflake dies – but this Snowflake Wishes with the wonderful So Many Snowflakes Dies is simply stunning!!

And the Snowflake Splendor DSP and Balmy Blue Glimmer Paper are gorgeous, right?

And – although it’s not just POPPING out at you on this card, you’re going to want the Winter Snow Embossing Folder (I promise!).

I hope you like – and are adding the truly splendiforous Snowflake Splendor suite to your must-have list!! 😉

Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Christmas Poinsettia Petals Sneak Peek

Hey guys – Happy HAWWWWMP day!!  And uhm…it’s Tax Day in the Time of COVID, so….don’t forget!

FYSA – f you’re expecting a new Aug – Dec 2020 Mini Catalog from me in the mail – give it a couple of days and then start looking and bugging Mr. Postman.

And – don’t flame me – I know there are Postwomans…but so far there hasn’t been a song, okay?

In that catalog, one of the MANY wonderful new goodies you’ll see is the Poinsettia Place Suite – anchored by today’s Sneak Peek – the Poinsettia Petals Bundle and Poinsettia Place DSP!  I paired those new goodies with the fun and handy Itty Bitty Christmas set from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.  Take a look-see:

Yep – jumped smack back into my wheelhouse – layers, big bows, greenery and woodgrain!  Whoo-hooo!!

The layout for this one was inspired by the sketch challenge over at CAS(E) This Sketch.

I started with some woodgrain paper from the new Poinsettia Place DSP – there are some wonderful designs to choose from in this paper, y’all!  And – you can try them all out with one of my paper shares.  Just sayin’….

I matted that paper on a piece of Soft Suede with Liquid Glue to create the card front.

Then I took a die in the Stitched Triangles die set – this is destined to be one of my go-to layering die sets!! – and cut a piece of pine-cone-strewn paper.

I laid it on the card front and then put the whole thing into my Stamparatus.  With the triangle in place – held with the magnets – I added the small sentiment from Itty Bitty Christmas in Soft Suede.  I stamped it multiple times in order to get it dark enough and visible on the wood-grain paper.

I stamped the pine bough from Poinsettia Place in Garden Green a couple of times on the card front.

Then I cut a couple of holly leaves using the cutting die and the embossing die in the set.  I spritzed the card stock with water before cutting – to really emphasize the embossed veins in the leaves.

I also cut some berries from the wunnermus Brushed Metallic 12″ x 12″ card stock (I used the Bronze – but there’s also copper and gold in the pack!).

Finally – and this is so stinkin’ cool! – I used the large die in the Poinsettia Die set to cut the flower from one of the designs in the Poinsettia Place DSP.

Whaaaaa??! 😉

I laid it all out and then adhered the leaves and berries with Liquid Glue.

Then I tied a Linen Thread double-loop bow and adhered it, and a Gold Hoop Embellishment, with a Glue Dot.  I popped the flower over top with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added some gold Metallic Pearls here, there and…in the middle of the flower…and four Antiqued Corners with Glue Dots –  and the card front was done!

On the inside, I once again laid a Poinsettia Place DSP Stitched Triangle die cut on a piece of Whisper White and used my Stamparatus to stamp a second Itty Bitty Christmas sentiment in Soft Suede.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the triangle to the panel and then mat the panel on Soft Suede.  Then I adhered the panel inside my Crumb Cake card base with Liquid Glue.  I added the card front with Liquid Glue – plenty of dimension already – and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got a poinsettia – two of the smaller flower images, stamped in Soft Suede and blended lightly with a Blender Pen, with the flower center colored using my Bumble Bee Stampin’ Write Marker – on the front…

…and more of the Poinsettia Place DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Wow – how gorgeous is this Poinsettia Petals stamp set with the stunning bundled Poinsettia Dies?!?

And it’s made even better knowing you can cut perfectly colored flowers right from the Poinsettia Place DSP using that large die in the bottom righthand corner of the picture above!  Oh, yea….you can ALSO cut the flocked poinsettia from the Plush Poinsettia Specialty Paper! Winner Winner!

I hope you like – and have added this suite of goodness to your list for the catalog launch on 4 Aug!!

Stampin’ Up! Buffalo Ride with Me Itty Bitty Christmas

Good morning and Happy Sunday.  Hope your weekend is going great!

I finished my tree-decorating.

I put the skirt around the base, slapped my hands together and declared it “GOOD”!

Decided that sticking all the ornaments on was…sort of pointless.  It’s the lights I really like the best – and…there’s only like two weeks left before it’d be time to undecorate.  So…  I went real Clean-and-Simple this year!

Of course – I haven’t put the ornaments bin away yet….these things take time.  And – I might change my mind. 😉

If you were able to join me last night for my facebook Live video, I appreciate you spending part of your Christmas-prep time with me!  If not – but want to see how to make today’s card – check out the instant-in-the-same-way-that-PONG-was-a-“fast”-video-game replay…

Fair warning – either FB or my internet or some combination thereof was glitchy as could be last night – so…the video comes in two parts – and the BOTH have sound issues.  My apologies in advance.

Part 1 shows you how to do the Triple Time with the Buffalo Check background stamp and the Stamparatus!

Stampin’ Up! A Snowman Season in Winter Woods for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Stampin’ Up! Perfectly Wrapped in Plaid Ho Ho Ho!

Morning, y’all!  Are you checking out the Year-End-Closeout bargains and determining which of the Retiring and Discontinuing goodies you need to add to your stash before they’re gone?  I hope so – don’t be risking losing them forever! 🙂

My card today uses a stamp set and punch that IS carrying over – the Perfectly Plaid Bundle with its Pine Tree Punch!  But – when next you see it – it will NOT be a bundle – and you will NOT be able to save 10% on the purchase price.  So…if you don’t have it yet…get it before the end of the Holiday catalog!

I mean – unless you LIKE spending extra money??

No?

Didn’t think so!

I used the bundle and combined it with the seriously gorgeous Wrapped in Plaid DSP.  Which is NOT carrying over – which means you MUST get it before 2 Jan (or before it sells out!).  Take a look-see:
