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! Ride With Me Video Tutorial Sneak Peek

Happy Saturday!  I hope this finds you more ready for the Holidays?  I got a lot done yesterday – so….yeah me!  MAYBE I’ll get my Christmas tree decorated this weekend?  It would be nice if it was done and we could enjoy it for longer than a minute this year!

I’ve got a fun little card to share with you tonight, on our Facebook Live video, at 7pm Eastern, over on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page.  It uses the fun little Ride With Me stamp set (from the Annual Catalog) and the Itty Bitty Christmas set from the 2019 Holiday Catalog.  And a fun technique that I think you’ll enjoy!  Take a sneaky peek:

Stampin’ Up! A Snowman Season in Winter Woods 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!

The color challenge we’ve got is a fun one – really pretty wide open!  It helped me to simplify my design – which was good!  I’m a little behind on Christmas cards (gasp!  I know….you are SHOCKED!).  So… I needed something pretty – and if I could make a stack of them easy peasy – then…even better!  Winter Woods and a sentiment from the Snowman Season…plus my Stamparatus!…was the answer.  Take a look-see:

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:

Stampin’ Up! Holly Jolly Brick & Mortar Christmas

Happy Happy FRI-AWWWMP Day!

I know you know what I was doing there.

I hope this really IS your last work day of the week.

I also hope that you took your turkey out of the freezer!  I took ours out on Monday.  Which…might have been okay (I was THINKING it was okay!) if it was a 12-13 pound turkey.  This is a 21-pounder, so…it’s now languishing in water in a bucket in the fridge in the barn.  We’ll see. Fingers crossed!

My card today is a jump forward to Christmas – cuz…it’s like tomorrow!!  And it’s super easy and let’s the Night Before Christmas DSP really do all the work – with an assist from the Suite’s Memories & More Card Pack and the Holly Jolly Christmas stamp set.  Take a look-see:

Wow – what a weekend!  We had SUCH a good time at OnStage – I got to meet some of my team members for the very first time (I HOPE not the last!) and we had a wonderful day – followed by pizza and catalog looking and world-problem-solving in my room on Saturday night!
