Stampin’ Up! Pretty Pines and Wishes All Aglow

So – guess what day it is!?!  Yep – it’s Hawwwmp Day!!

Counting down to that next one-day-off.

Yes, it’s true.  I’m wishing my life away.  Not good.  But – there it is.

I ordered some new goodies (shocker, I know!) and they arrived last week.  One of the little tidbits inside was a fun little stamp set called Wishes All Aglow.  Very cute images and sentiments.  I combined one of them with some pine boughs from Pretty Pines.  Another shocker! 🙂  Take a look-see:

I started with a piece of the Quilted Christmas DSP that I matted on Garden Green for the card front.  

My sentiment, from the Wishes All Aglow stamp set, is stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a Whisper White panel.  I used my Light and Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends pens to color the light bulbs.  I added some more “a-glow” around the edges.

Cuz…I could! 😉

I matted that on Garden Green and adhered it to the card front with Fast Fuse.

Then I pulled out my Pretty Pines Thinlits and cut two medium-length boughs in Garden Green and two short boughs in Lemon Lime Twist.  Using Liquid Glue, I adhered them to the card front.

The center embellishment is a Stitched Felt Embellishment, adhered with a couple of Glue Dots.  I tied a little Real Red bow from the Mini Tinsel Trim pack and added it to the felt embellishment with a Glue Dot.  And the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a second sentiment from the Wishes All Aglow stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  Then I stamped a couple of Christmas lights around it in Real Red and Daffodil Delight.

I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Garden Green mat and into my Lemon Lime Twist card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Wishes All Aglow Christmas lights on the front…

…and more of the Quilted Christmas DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Quick and easy but oh-so-cute! A very viable candidate from Wishes All Aglow – and quick enough to reproduce for an annual Christmas card when you’re looking for a more secular kind of card!  Hope you like!

Finn-Fan Fix  (I got a few pics!)

So, the other day Wayne and Finn went to Scout’s house.  Wayne for dinner and Finn for a play-date!

Which, apparently, he took full advantage of (he was even too pooped to go for his feed-the-horses run that evening – hopped right on the golf cart.  “I’m just going to patrol from up here, Dad – drive on!”).

Scout tried to teach him about herding chickens.

It’s not easy.  Who can even tell which is their front end and which is their back end?!?

But then – maybe all you have to do is do what your sister does!!

And then they rested.

I’m sorry I missed the fun! 😦

Stampin’ Up! Warm Fuzzy Smitten Mittens

Well, hey, y’all!  It’s Saturday and I’m at work!  Bleh.

We were hearing the weather might go down today, so…no telling what we’ll accomplish.  Only time – and the weatherman knows.

Okay – the weatherman doesn’t have any more clue than I do, let’s just face it! 😉

But – in light of the fact that they were talking “wintry mix” today – I thought I’d make a card with some warm and fuzzy mittens taking center stage.  So – I pulled out my brand new Smitten Mitten stamp set and the matching Many Mittens Framelits and put one together.  Take a look-see:

I was – sort of loosely – inspired by the sketch challenge over at CAS(E) This Sketch.

I started with a piece of oh-so-appropriate mitten-covered DSP from the Be Merry DSP pack and Fast Fuse’d it onto a Garden Green mat.  Then I cut a smaller piece (this is actually the design on the back of the first paper!) and adhered it with Liquid Glue.  Around the seam, I wrapped a piece of Cherry Cobbler 1/4″ Double-Stitched Ribbon, securing it in the back with scotch tape.

Using the little snowflake stamp set in the Smitten Mitten stamp set, I inked it with Versamark and stamped it on a piece of scrap Whisper White card stock.  Then I sprinkled it with Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed it.  Once it had cooled, I outlined the image with my Fine-Tip Glue Pen and then sprinkled the glue with Dazzling Diamonds Stampin’ Glitter.  

Once again, I waited for it to dry completely and then cut it with the matching die in the Many Mittens Framelits set.  While I had the die out, I cut a Silver Foil snowflake as well.  I adhered that one to the card front with Liquid Glue and popped the glittery snowflake on with a Stampin’ Dimensional.  

For the mittens, I inked up the sentiment mitten from Smitten Mittens in Cherry Cobbler ink and stamped it on Whisper White.  Then I cut it with its Many Mittens Framelits die.

I cut the detailed mitten from the Cherry Cobbler Be Merry DSP pattern and another solid mitten from Whisper White and adhered them together with Liquid Glue.  

I used a Glue Dot on the back of each mitten to adhere a short length of Silver Mini Tinsel Trim to each one and then popped them both on the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I tied a small bow and adhered it with a Glue Dot.  To finish off, I added a few silver heart Metallic Enamel Shapes to the top of the card front and a silver round Metallic Enamel Shape to the snowflake – and the card was done!

On the inside, I stamped the little hearts image in Cherry Cobbler across the bottom of a Whisper White panel.  Then I added the snowflake – heat embossed in Silver.  A second sentiment from the Smitten Mittens stamp set, in Cherry Cobbler, topped it all off.

I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Garden Green mat and into my Cherry Cobbler card base (turns out that when you’re sitting a stone’s throw from the SU! Home Office – Second Day UPS is very fast!! ) popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Smitten Mittens hearts in Cherry Cobbler and some more Silver heat embossed snowflakes on the front…

…and a little more Be Merry DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Smitten Mittens and the Many Mittens Framelits.  What a cute bundle, heh?  Ever since I got to play with it at our last Amy’s Inkin’ Krew team meeting, I’d been anxiously awaiting its arrival!  And I’m so glad to finally have it in hand.  Hope you like!

And – not for nuthin’ – this cute Be Merry DSP (from the 2017-2018 Annual Catalog) is one of the fun papers you can get in the DSP Sale!  Check the deets down below!

Finn-Fan Fix  (you’ll have to settle for re-runs until I get back home to take fresh photos!!)

Today (well – yesterday) I got to see a rare treat.  We’d heard these guys were hanging around the office area – there’s lots and lots of bunnies for their dining pleasure.

Momma….

And one of her two kittens.

I sent the pics to Wayne.  His reponse?

“We don’t need any more cats”!

Guess he knows me pretty well, huh? 😉

Stampin’ Up! Hearts Come Hometown Greetings for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop



Happy Thursday, y’all – and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! We’ve got a full roster playing with today’s sketch, so be sure to check ’em all out when you get done here!  

And…here’s the sketch in question!

I decided to try out the super cool Hometown Greetings Edgelits and combined it with its bundled stamp set – Hearts Come Home.  Take a look-see:

Okay – I might have taken a little liberty with the placement of the sentiment! 😉

I started with two pieces of the Merry Music Specialty DSP and matted them both on Whisper White card stock.  Then I Fast Fuse’d the smaller square onto the bigger square for the card front.

Next up – a piece of Night of Navy card stock.  Across the top, I cut the stars image from Hometown Greetings Edgelits a few times.  I adhered a small rectangle of Silver Foil behind the panel with Liquid Glue – for shiny stars!

I matted that on another piece of Whisper White and then adhered it to the card front.

For my “town” – I cut two pieces of Whisper White with just two of the dies in the Hometown Greetings Edgelits.  The one in the back, with the church, is the same width as the Night of Navy panel. The front scene is the same width as the entire card base (4 1/4″).

I used a small piece of Painted Autumn DSP and adhered it behind the church windows.  Then I adhered the die-cut piece directly to the Night of Navy panel with Liquid Glue.

On the “front” piece, I adhered pieces of Night of Navy behind the windows – I wanted the town to look as if no one was home.  Everyone is at church!

See? 🙂

I used my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to position and stamp the Hearts Come Home sentiment in Night of Navy across the bottom of the panel and popped it over the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a single silver star Metallic Enamel Shape and the card front was done.

On the inside, I used the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig again and stamped a second Hearts Come Home sentiment in Night of Navy on a Whisper White panel.  Across the bottom, I added Night of Navy stars – also from Hearts Come Home.

I added another silver star Metallic Enamel Shape, Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Whisper White mat and into my Basic Black card base.  I popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Hearts Come Home stars in Night of Navy across the front…

…and I added some more of the Merry Music Specialty DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  How wonderful is this bundle of Hearts Come Home stamp set and Hometown Greetings Edgelits?  It makes creating a snowy Christmas Eve a cinch, wouldn’t you say?  Hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Carols of Christmas Whimsy

Happy Monday, y’all – not even an oxymoron today!  I don’t have to work – so I hope I’m still asleep when this hits your inbox!  As I write it on Sunday night, I’m still pumped up from sharing this Christmas card with some of you on my Facebook Live video last night.  And – I think I’m getting used to the altitude, so…I’m not dragging as bad as I have been.  Whoo-hoo!! 🙂

If you were able to join me last night, I surely do appreciate you spending some of your weekend with me!  If not, here’s the link to the video on YouTube, in case you want to take a look.  

I used several stamp sets for this one – the Carols of Christmas, a little of the Host-Exclusive Seasons of Whimsy set and one of my very favorites – Christmas Happiness.  All of these wonderful stamp sets are showcased on the pretty Merry Music Specialty DSP.  Take a look-see:

To begin, I stamped the pine bough from the Christmas Happiness set twice in Garden Green on the top of a piece of Merry Music Specialty DSP.  It was a coincidence that I used the music from Deck the Halls!

Or…was it?!? 😉

I also added some lights from Christmas Happiness – I stamped them in Tuxedo Black Memento ink and colored them with my new Stampin’ Blend markers (coming soon – but we don’t know when!!) in Cherry Cobbler and Daffodil Delight (so – yes, you could use Stampin’ Write Markers, too!).

I heat embossed the sentiment, from Carols of Christmas, in Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder, using my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to get it positioned where I wanted it.  Then, I cut two medium length pine boughs from Lemon Lime Twist card stock, using the dies in the Pretty Pines Thinlits, and adhered them over the stamped boughs with Liquid Glue.  At this point, I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Gold Foil mat.

For the Season of Whimsy ornaments, I stamped all three in Versamark on some Whisper White card stock, sprinkled them with Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed them.  Then I fussy cut them and colored them with my Pool Party and Night of Navy Stampin’ Blend Markers.

 

Using Glue Dots, I “strung” some Silver Mini-Sequin Trim in my pine boughs, then I adhered the two Pool Party ornaments with Liquid Glue and popped the third on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I tied a bow in Night of Navy 5/8″ Crinkled Seam Binding and adhered it with a Glue Dot.  I also adhered the tails of the ribbon with Glue Dots – to keep them where I wanted them.  I added Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the top ornament and the card front was done!

On the inside, I heat embossed two more ornaments from Season of Whimsy in Silver on a Whisper White mat and colored them with my Pool Party and Night of Navy Stampin’ Blends.

I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Gold Foil mat and into my Night of Navy card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another Silver embossed Pool Party Season of Whimsy ornament on the front…

…And some strategically chosen Merry Music Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I love the idea of stamping on sheet music and this pretty Merry Music Specialty DSP lets us do that so easily!  And what better to add than pine boughs and a lovely sentiment?  I think the Carols of Christmas and the Season of Whimsy images are so pretty nestled in the pines from Christmas Happiness!  Hope you like! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Carols of Christmas Whimsy Video Sneak Peek

Mornin’, y’all! It’s Sunday and I have what amounts to an entire “weekend” off!

Stampin’ Up! Merry Little Christmas Quilt for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop



Happy Thursday, y’all – and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! We’ve got a full roster playing with today’s color challenge, so be sure to check ’em all out when you get done here!

This week’s colors were a bit of a challenge for me…

I looked around for some inspiration and stumbled on my stack of Quilted Christmas DSP.  All Real Red and Garden Green.  So…I pulled out the Christmas Quilt stamp set and Quilt Builder Framelits and…take a look-see:

I started with a Garden Green pattern and Fast Fuse’d it to a Lemon Lime Twist mat for the card front.

My sentiment, from Christmas Quilt, is stamped in Real Red on a piece of Whisper White.   I added a stamped tree image in Lemon Lime Twist, and then stamped the dotted tree outline image in Garden Green.  Then I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Lemon Lime Twist mat and ran the whole thing thru the Big Shot in the Quilt Top TIEF.  I used Fast Fuse to add it to the card front.

On a scrap of Whisper White, I stamped the tree image again, this time in Garden Green.  Then I added the second image over that in Lemon Lime Twist and cut it out with the matching die from the Quilt Builder Framelits.  Then I adhered it to the sentiment panel with Liquid Glue.  This framelits set also has a tiny little star die, so I used it to cut a star from Real Red paper in the Quilted Christmas DSP stack, and adhered it with Liquid Glue.

Finally, I adhered one of the Stitched Felt Embellishments with Liquid Glue and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added another tree from Christmas Quilt in Lemon Lime Twist with a Garden Green dotted border.  I stamped the image a second time, on a sticky note, and cut it out as a mask.  With the first tree covered, I added a second tree in Garden Green and Lemon Lime Twist.  A Real Red star tops them off.  Then I edged the whole panel with my Garden Green Stampin’ Write Marker.

I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Lemon Lime Twist mat and into my Thick Whisper White card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium envelope got a couple more Christmas Quilt trees on the front – complete with a Real Red star…

…and I added more of the Quilted Christmas DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This is such a cute little Suite of goodies – with lots of design possibilities.  Hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Washi Striped Cheers to the Year

Happy Hawwmp Day, y’all!  It’s Wednesday and things are going well here in Utah!  The days are brisk and gorgeous.  Things are working pretty much how one might expect.  And…only 45 days to go!  Whoo-hoo!

So – my card today is so quick and so easy and so fun – that it’s sorta cray cray!  I just used some pretty metallic Year of Cheer Specialty Washi Tape and the Cheers to the Year stamp set to make a pretty mixed metals holiday season card.  Take a look-see:

The layout is from the sketch portion of the Fusion Challenge.  

This one’ll go quick y’all, so buckle up!

I started with a piece of Very Vanilla card stock and ran strips of the new Year of Cheer Specialty Washi Tape up from the bottom.  Then I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Champagne Foil mat.

Done!

I used some Liquid Glue to adhere a Foil Snowflake – Vanilla side up – to the card front.

For my sentiment, I heat embossed the striped circle image in Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder on Very Vanilla.  Then I added the sentiment – heat embossed in Gold – in the center, using my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig.  I punched it out with my 2″ Circle Punch.  Using the new Starburst Punch, I made a Champagne Foil mat and adhered the sentiment to it with Liquid Glue.

I put several Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back of the matted circle and used them to wind loops of Copper Metallic Thread around and around.  Then I popped it all onto the snowflake and that was it for the card front!

On the inside, I added some more of the Specialty Washi Tape on the bottom of a Very Vanilla panel.  Uhm….how easy is that??

I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Champagne Foil mat and into my Thick Very Vanilla card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got a Copper heat embossed snowflake from the Cheers to the Year stamp set on the front…

…and more Year of Cheer Specialty Washi Tape on the envelope flap.  Just lay the strips down (start at the top) and then trim the excess with your Paper Snips!

Et Voila!  Pretty.  Easy.  Fun!  And – suitable for Christmas, Holiday Greetings, a wedding?  New Baby??

Gotta love this beautiful metallic Year of Cheer Specialty Washi Tape and the wonderful Cheers to the Year stamp set.  Hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Ready for Christmas for the Stamp Ink Paper #119

Happy Tuesday, y’all!  Hope your week is going well!!

So – I was really surprised and honored to be asked to be a Guest Designer for the month of October for the Stamp Ink Paper Challenge Blog!  We’ve got a Card Maker’s Choice challenge this week and I used the Stampin’ Up! Ready for Christmas stamp set and matching Christmas Staircase Thinlits to create my card share.  Take a look-see:


Here’s the challenge badge for the Stamp Ink Paper 119.  Stop by the challenge blog to see what the other Design Team members have created and to play along too!

I also played along over at the Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge.  I went across the top row, and used “Sparkle” for the Open Space!

I started with a piece of Cherry Cobbler card stock for the card front.  The design – that I think looks like old-fashioned wallpaper! – was made with some Embossing Paste, Dazzling Diamonds Stampin’ Glitter and the Party Pattern Decorative Masks.  I laid the stencil over the card stock and secured it with some sticky notes.  Hint: do this on some sort of craft sheet.  Or prepare to throw out whatever surface you do this on! 🙂  

I scooped out a small blob of Embossing Paste onto a craft sheet and, using the Palette Knives, mixed in some Dazzling Diamonds Stampin’ Glitter.  How much Glitter?  I don’t know!  Just did it until it was sparkly enough to suit me!  Then I smeared it onto the card front with the Palette Knife.  I pulled off the mask and set the card front aside to dry.

Next up, I cut the staircase from the Christmas Staircase Thinlits from a piece of Wood Textures DSP.  Once the Embossing Paste was good and dry, I adhered the stairs to the card front with Liquid Glue.  Using the pine garland image in Ready for Christmas, I stamped it in Garden Green on Garden Green card stock and cut it with its matching die.  Then I adhered that onto the staircase.

I cut a couple of pine sprigs in Garden Green and a couple of bows in Cherry Cobbler and adhered them on the top rail with Liquid Glue.

To make the tree, I stamped the tree image in Garden Green onto Garden Green card stock and cut it with the matching die from Christmas Staircase.  Then I cut 9 Garden Green boughs.  Using my Fine-Tip Glue Pen, I swiped glue onto each bough and then sprinkled them with Dazzling Diamonds Stampin’ Glitter.  When they’d dried, I adhered them with Liquid Glue to my Christmas tree shape – starting at the bottom of the tree.

I pulled apart a length of Jute Twine to make three thinner strands.  One of those strands I wrapped around the tree – just like I would do with garland on a real tree – and secured the ends in the back with scotch tape.  I did the same with some 1/4″ Copper Trim that I pulled apart slightly to make a wider ribbon.

I cut a few Copper Foil bows with the die from the Christmas Staircase Thinlits, and adhered them with Liquid Glue.  

For the sentiment, I individually inked the words “Merry” and “Christmas”, from the phrase in the Ready for Christmas set, in Cherry Cobbler and stamped them on Whisper White.  Then I snipped them out – edged them with my Garden Green Stampin’ Write Marker and adhered them with Liquid Glue.  

The tree topper is a Copper Foil star, two pinecones – heat embossed in Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder on Gold Foil, and a bow tied with a piece of the Jute Twine that I’d pulled apart.  I Fast Fuse’d the whole thing to a Garden Green mat and that was it for the card front.

On the inside, I used the pine sprig die from the Christmas Staircase Thinlits and cut five of them up the side of a Whisper White panel.

I Fast Fuse’d the panel onto a Garden Green mat and into my Whisper White card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

For my Whisper White Medium Envelope, I used the negative cut outs from making the pine sprigs for the front of the card and sponged the front with them in Garden Green…

…and then I used the Pattern Party mask again to sponge the envelope flap with Cherry Cobbler ink.

Et Voila!  Not near as difficult as the length of the description might lead you to believe – promise!  I love the sparkle that the Dazzling Diamonds gave to the Embossing Paste – and I think the little scene made from the Ready for Christmas bundle looks like an old-fashioned Christmas setting, don’t you?  Hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Christmas Seasonal Lantern on Plaid!

It’s Monday, y’all.  And that’s all I’m going to say about it! 🙂

If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video, I sure do appreciate it!  If you weren’t able to join, but would like to watch the tutorial, here’s a link to it on YouTube!

This is one that uses what’s become my favorite new Designer Papers – the beautiful plaids in the Christmas Around the World DSP.  And it all works together with the Seasonal Lantern stamp set and bundled Lantern Builder Framelits.  Take a look-see:

The layout was inspired by this week’s Global Design Project sketch challenge.

I matted my pretty Christmas Around the World plaid on Basic Black for the card front.  Then I cut the lantern shape with the die from the Lantern Builder Framelits and the detailed lantern from Gold Glimmer Paper.

The candle is stamped on a piece of Whisper White, in Tuxedo Black Memento ink and filled in with Real Red.  These are both stamps in Seasonal Lantern, as is the “glow” image that I added in Daffodil Delight.  I used my Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Write Marker to color the flame.

I adhered a gold Foil Snowflake with Liquid Glue, then wrapped a piece of Basic Black 3/8″ Shimmer Ribbon around the card front, adhering it in the back with scotch tape.  I added the lantern with more Liquid Glue.

Check out the video to see how to make the matted label with Basic Black and Gold Glimmer Paper using the Pretty Label Punch.  I stamped the sentiment from Seasonal Lantern in Versamark on Whisper White, sprinkled it with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heated it up.  Then I cut banner ends with my Paper Snips and adhered it over the matted label.

I cut some pine boughs in Garden Green with the Pretty Pines Thinlits and adhered them with Liquid Glue.  The pine cones, from Seasonal Lantern, are stamped in Early Espresso and Soft Suede and cut with their die in the Lantern Builder Framelits.  Once all the embellishments were on, I popped the label and sentiment on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I topped it all off with a bow tied from a length of Basic Black Solid Baker’s Twine and two lengths of Gold Metallic Thread, adhered with a Glue Dot.

On the inside, I matted a strip of the Christmas Around the World plaid DSP on Basic Black card stock, then added another length of the Basic Black 3/8″ Shimmer Ribbon around the Whisper White panel.

I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Basic Black mat and into my Thick Whisper White card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium envelope got a trio of Seasonal Lantern candles in Real Red, Garden Green and Daffodil Delight on the front…

…and more of the pretty Christmas Around the World DSP on the envelope flap.  Plus some more candles!

Et Voila!  Gotta love this plaid paper – and the versatility of the Seasonal Lantern bundle – Christmas – Fall – Hannukah!  Hope you like!

Don’t miss the fact that the Christmas Around the World DSP is included in the Buy-Three-Get-One-Free DSP sale going on now thru the end of the month!  And you’re going to want to take advantage of my Ordering Special and the World Card Making Day celebration, too!  Lots of opportunities to stock up and save!!

Stampin’ Up! Seasonal Lantern Video Sneak Peek and some Ordering Specials!

Mornin’, y’all!!  I’m on my way!  After spending yesterday afternoon struggling to get all my stuff in two 70 pound suitcases.  Who knew?!?  A little bit of paper and some ink and some stamp sets.  And – not even sort of all my stamp sets!

I like driving much much better!  

We got it all in – and by we, I, of course, mean the Master Packer.  Here’s the million dollar question…how the heck am I going to recreate the puzzle when it’s time to come home!  I took pictures – but…

Well.  As Scarlett would say – Fiddle-Dee-Dee….I’ll worry about that tomorrow!

So – God willing and the internet cooperates, I’ll be able to do a video with you guys tonight.  Fingers crossed – if I can’t get set up or if I just fall flat on my face…I may not make it.  But – I’m going to try!  Start like you mean to go on, yes?

And I love this card – it’s back with some more Black and Gold and a little Glittery-ness.  And plaid…glorious plaid!!  I used the Pretty Label Punch and the Seasonal Lantern stamp set and bundled Lantern Builder Framelits.  Here’s the sneaky peek!

So think good thoughts and hopefully I’ll be Live at 8pm Eastern right here on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page!  Watch the FB page for updates in case there’s a change.  

Hope to see you then! 🙂

Now – on to my Ordering Special!  It’s a new Stampin’ Up! year and I wanted to get it kicked off with a bang!  So…I’m offering Free Shipping and Double Peppermint Points for one week only!!

 

Deal #1: Free Shipping on orders over $50!

For all orders of $50 or greater (before taxes and shipping) placed through me from now through Sunday, 8 Oct, I’m offering free shipping.  Here’s how you can order and receive your free shipping rebate:

  •  Place your order directly through my online store, and provide me with your PayPal account e-mail and I’ll send you your rebate via PayPal
  •  Send me your order via email, I’ll deduct the shipping costs and send you an invoice through PayPal.

I’m not doing checks this time around – since I’m not at home.  If you just can’t do PayPal – give me a holler.  We’ll see what we can work out! 

Deal #2: Double Peppermints on orders over $50!

Peppermints are the reward “currency” in my Customer Rewards program (the Punkin’ Heads!).  You gather up peppermints when you order thru me – usually you get one peppermint for every $25 in product (before shipping and tax) that you buy.  Remember, when you collect 16 peppermints, you’ll get a free $40 gift from me! So – with this Double Peppermint special, you’ll earn four Peppermints for each $50 that you order!🙂

Remember – these are good for just one week!  

When you place your order online, don’t forget to add the host code below (if your order is under $150) to get your free gift!  If your order is over $150, please don’t use this code (you’ll miss out on your own Stampin’ Rewards if you use it) but you’ll still get the free gift. 🙂  Now – it turns out I’m not the only one offering some free goodies this month!  Stampin’ Up! is, too!  Read on!!
