Stampin’ Up! Love You Still Petals & More for the Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop!

Good mornin’, y’all – welcome to another edition of Amy’s Inkin’ Krew team blog hop!  Each month we make projects centered around a theme – and this month is Love!  We can interpret that any way we want – so…be sure to check and see everyone’s projects – we’ve got a bunch of talented ladies hopping with us this month!  

I decided to use a lovely little stamp set in the 2018 Occasions catalog, called Love You Still, for my sentiment, with some die cuts from the Petals & More Thinlits.  Take a look-see:

Once again, I went to a sketch challenge to help with the layout.  On this one, it was from the Paper Craft Crew! Continue reading

Stampin’ Up! Merry Christmas!!

Merry Merry Christmas, y’all!  I hope this finds you well and opening presents and making dinner preparations!  I’ll be deviling eggs and bringing my Prime Rib to room temperature in readiness for cooking!

No card today – just a greeting from me and Finn.

Thank you all so very much for a most wonderful year! 🙂

As you sit down to dinner today and give Thanks for the Blessing of this Day and this Season, please remember our men and women in the military.  So many of them are spending this day away from their family and friends so that we may be with ours in Peace and safety.  Say a little prayer for them, if you please.

I’ll see you tomorrow, my friends.

Stampin’ Up! Last Minute Gift Ideas!

This is my second post for the day – if you’re looking for the card I shared this morning, check it out right here!

Now, y’all.  I know there are people among us that get their shopping for Christmas done in…September.  Like me.  I totally do that.

Uhm….

Anywho….if you happen to not be one of those hyper-organized folks (yep – this sounds way more like me!) and have one or two on your list for whom you’ve not shopped, let me give you some perfect last minute ideas. 🙂

You could get in your car, brave the Friday-before-Christmas traffic and go to the mall.  That’s an excellent idea.

Or not.

You could…pay like triple-quadruple shipping to perhaps have something show up sometime on Monday from an online store.

Risky.  And expensive.

ORRRRR – you could give the gift of creativity right from the comfort of your barcalounger and pajamas!

And I’ve got two options for your consideration:  

Give the gift of a Paper Pumpkin Subscription!

A Prepaid Paper Pumpkin Subscription makes for a wonderful and thoughtful gift for the holidays for the crafter (or budding crafter!) on your list!  Here’s how to do it!

  • You place an order in my online store and checkout.  You will earn your very own Host Rewards for purchases over $150 (even when combined with other items you want to have shipped to you).  Bonus – if all you order is Prepaid Paper Pumpkin subscriptions – you won’t pay a dime in shipping!
  • You receive an email with a Prepaid Paper Pumpkin Subscription Code.
  • Give that code to a friend, family member or keep it for yourself (I won’t tell!).  If you’d like something “official” – you can click on that picture up above and print out a fun Gift Certificate!
  • Stick your “official” gift certificate in a beautiful, handmade Christmas card you made with your own two hands or write the code on a wonderful gift tag….whatever works best for you…and present it with a flourish to the lucky recipient!  Brace yourself for the excitement!
  • If the recipient doesn’t already have a Paper Pumpkin account, they should set one up here.
  • On the main screen of their account, they add the Subscription Code.
  • Starting the following month, they’ll find a Paper Pumpkin box in their mailbox for every month of the subscription. If they want to continue past that time, they can simply add their credit card information to continue.

Option 2 – How about a Gift Certificate from me – for anything the recipient wants in the Online Store?

  • I can provide a lovely Christmas-y Gift Certificate (in digits for you to print out whilst still in your pajamas!) for any amount you’d like!  
  • Once you’ve printed the certificate – use any creative gifting methodology you like!  “But Mary…what if I live in North Dakota and it’s going to my bestest friend in south Florida?!” Well…send the digits of the certificate in an e-mail!  Add a selfie of yourself holding the Gift Certificate! (consider getting dressed before snapping the shot…) to the email!
  • To redeem their gift, your lucky recipient will send me an e-mail or give me a call and I’ll place her order for her!  
  • Bonus – your gift-ee will receive Peppermint Points for the amount of the gift certificate and will begin her journey of creativity!  But – as a reward for your generosity….I’ll also give YOU the same number of Peppermint Points!!  Win-win-WIN!!

So – two ideas – all doable today!  Or even tomorrow!

Get after it, y’all.  And then settle back, sip some peppermint hot chocolate and binge watch Christmas movies the rest of the day! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Quilted Smitten Mittens Gift Box for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop



Happy Thursday, y’all – and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! Well, it’s darned near Christmas and we’ve got a pretty classic color challenge for you and for the season!  Will everyone go Christmas or…?? Be sure to check out all the projects when you get done here – and see for yourself!  

So, I don’t know about y’all – but my Christmas readiness level is about where it should be.

If it was September! 🙁

Which means that quick and easy is high on my list right now.  Thankfully, we’ve got our Mini Pizza Boxes and pretty Quilted Christmas DSP and the Smitten Mittens Bundle (but its retiring so grab it up!) to help.  Take a look-see!

These little beauties are just right for a piece of jewelry, or a gift card, or a cookie (they’re even food safe on the inside!).  So…basically…perfect for all your Christmas packaging.

So…buckle-up, buttercup…you’ll be done in a hot second.

I cut a piece of Gold Foil for a mat and a slightly smaller piece of Quilted Christmas DSP and adhered them together with Liquid Glue.  I made a little “present” by wrapping a couple lengths of Cherry Cobbler (yes, not Real Red.  My bad!) 1/4″ Double Stitched Ribbon around it – securing the ends in the back with a Glue Dot.

On a piece of Whisper White card stock, I stamped two Cherry Cobbler mittens from the Smitten Mittens stamp set and cut them with their matching dies in the Many Mittens Framelits.  I stamped some ric-rac “trim” across the top in Cherry Cobbler and embossed both mittens with the fun little embossing die in the Framelits.

The snowflakes are cut from some more of the plaid Quilted Christmas DSP with the snowflake die in the Many Mittens set and adhered with Liquid Glue.

I stuck a large Gold Faceted Gem on each mitten and adhered the first on with Liquid Glue – sliding it under the ribbon.  On the second mitten, I stamped the sentiment in Cherry Cobbler, then popped it on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

See that gold Mini Tinsel?  That’s a sneak peek from the new 2018 Occasions Catalog – it comes in the Love Mini Tinsel Trim Combo Pack, paired with a roll of Powder Pink Tinsel.  Pretty!

I tied a double-length bow and adhered it with a Glue Dot, popped the whole thing on the top of my Mini Pizza Box with some more Stampin’ Dimensionals and…done!  Ready to fill with whatever strikes your fancy!  There are so many possibilities with these Mini Pizza Boxes – and I love the little Smitten Mittens tags, don’t you?  Hope you like!

Now that you’ve seen my project, please take a little time to visit all the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hoppers today!

Stampin’ Up! Celebrate a Night in Bethlehem for the Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop!

Good mornin’, y’all – welcome to another edition of Amy’s Inkin’ Krew team blog hop!  Each month we make projects centered around a theme – and this month is Celebrate!  We can interpret that any way we want – so…be sure to check and see everyone’s projects – we’ve got a bunch of talented ladies hopping with us this month!  

I decided to Celebrate the reason for the season!  I did that with the Night in Bethlehem stamp set and I used the new Celebrate You Thinlits (which will be available on 3 Jan as a free gift with a $100 purchase in the Sale-A-Bration flyer!) to create my eclipse card.  Take a look-see:

I borrowed a layout idea from the Fusion Challenge this week.

One of the talented ladies in their design team, Carol Mayne, had done an eclipse card with a similar looking stamp set – it was such a beautiful idea that I borrowed some elements from her!  You can check out her card up on the Fusion Challenge page!

So – I started with a piece of Thick Whisper White card stock for the card front and stamped several of the images from the Night of Bethlehem stamp set in Basic Black Archival Ink and one shepherd in Basic Gray Archival Ink on the front.

Above the scene, I stamped the stars image from Night of Bethlehem a few times in Versamark ink and heat embossed them with Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  

I cut the word sentiment from the Celebrate You Thinlits (3 Jan 18) – being sure to save the little cut out pieces.  Then I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Berry Burst mat.  I laid the sentiment back in the negative space and used it as a guide to adhere all the little cut outs with Liquid Glue.

I cut three more Celebrate die cuts in Berry Burst card stock and used Liquid Glue to stack them all up – ending with the white stamped version on the top.  Then I used a little more Liquid Glue to adhere the sentiment back in place.

I “wrapped” two lengths of new Berry Burst 3/8″ Metallic Edged Ribbon (Occasions catalog – 3 Jan) around the panel, securing them in the back with scotch tape.  Then I adhered a looped short length with a Glue Dot.

I made a Billie Moan bow with Silver Metallic Thread (folks – this ain’t for the faint of heart!  Don’t use Metallic Thread for your first bow of this kind!  Start with Linen Thread and work up to this Metallic Thread! Trust.  Me.)  I adhered it with a Glue Dot and then stuck on a little white bow from the Season of Glitz Mini Gift Bows.  I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels and the card front was done!

On the inside, I used my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to add a sentiment from Night in Bethlehem in Basic Black Archival Ink on a Whisper White panel.

I matted the panel on Berry Burst and wrapped a length of the Berry Burst 3/8″ Metallic-Edged Ribbon around it, securing it in the back with scotch tape.  Then I Fast Fuse’d it into my Basic Black card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got a few more Night in Bethlehem images in Basic Black and Basic Gray Archival Ink on the front…

…and on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I love the Berry Burst for this card, don’t you?  And – how cool is that sentiment die!  I’m loving that Celebrate You Thinlits set so much – and the fact that it’ll be free is just the icing on the cake!  Night of Bethlehem is sticking around for a little bit, y’all – but…don’t risk not getting it if you want it, okay?  Hope you like!

Scroll on down for the card cuts and all the products you’ll need to make this one for yourself.

Now that you’ve seen my card, I hope you’ll take a little time to jump thru all the other projects we have to share. Click any name below, or you can use the Previous Blog button to jump to Julie’s page or the Next Blog button to see what Sue’s been doing!

Stampin’ Up! Season of Whimsy & Pines for the Stamp Ink Paper #129

Hey, y’all!  Welcome to Tuesday and another fun challenge from Stamp Ink Paper!  

Our Stamp Ink Paper Challenge #129 this week is a color challenge…

I pulled out the fun Host set called Season of Whimsy from the 2017 Holiday Catalog for this one and added some pine boughs from the Pretty Pines Thinlits.  Take a look-see:

This card also played along quite nicely with the FabFriday challenge this week.

I started this one with a piece of gold plaid paper from the Year of Cheer Specialty DSP matted on Cherry Cobbler card stock for the card front.  Then I cut a piece of Wood Textures DSP, matted it on Cherry Cobbler and Fast Fuse’d it to the card front.

I used my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to add the sentiment from the Season of Whimsy set in Versamark Ink, sprinkled it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed it with my Heat Tool.

On a piece of scrap Whisper White card stock, I stamped the three Season of Whimsy ornaments in Versamark and heat embossed them in Gold.  Then I colored each of them with my Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Write Marker and fussy cut them.

I cut a bunch of Pretty Pines Thinlits pine boughs in Lemon Lime Twist and Garden Green, and a couple of Cherry Cobbler berries, too!

I built my little “scene” by adhering the pine boughs with Liquid Glue and interspersing the Season of Whimsy ornaments amongst them.  I used a couple of Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals to add the final largest ornament.

I tied a small bow from a piece of Lemon Lime Twist 1/4″ Ombre Ribbon and adhered it with a Glue Dot.  To finish things off, I added a few gold Metallic Enamel Shapes!

On the inside, I left the liner blank, simply repeating the layers on the front of the card.  I matted a piece of Year of Cheer Specialty DSP on Cherry Cobbler and, over that, Fast Fuse’d a Cherry Cobbler matted piece of Whisper White.

I Fast Fuse’d the layered panels into my Basic Black card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another Gold embossed ornament from Season of Whimsy on the front – colored with the Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Write Marker…

…and a little more of the Wood Textures DSP on the envelope flap!

Et Voila!  A couple of greens and some Cherry Cobbler to make a wonderful Pretty Pine-filled display of Christmas ornaments courtesy of the Season of Whimsy stamp set!  I hope you like!

Season of Whimsy is on the retiring list – so, if you love it (and why wouldn’t you??) – now’s the time to get it.  Holler at me and ask me how! 🙂

Finn Fan Fix  

So – one of the fun things that happened to the Man this past weekend was meeting Lucky.  

Lucky lives there in North Carolina.  

Lucky and Finn hit it off immediately!  Of course, Lucky may have wished Finn had a smidge less energy – he was a bit worn out by the time the play date ended.

Hard to imagine….

really…

…airs above the ground…


 

This kind of play takes a toll, people.  Even on a youngster Aussie!

He said a fond adieu to Lucky and I think they made tentative plans for a re-match in the near future!  And then he climbed in the truck to recuperate!

Stampin’ Up! Merry Musical Christmas Happiness!

Happy Monday, y’all!  And – since SU! is giving EVERYone FREE SHIPPING TODAY – it really IS a Happy Monday!

You read it right – and they mean free shipping on ANY and EVERY order!  So – click here and head over to my Online Store to get saving!  Oh – and today’s the last day of my TRIPLE Peppermint Rewards Points – so… pretty darned perfect timing, huh?? 🙂

So – if you were able to join me last night on my Facebook Live video, thank you so much for spending part of your Sunday with me!  If not, and you’d like to watch – here’s the YouTube replay! Fair Warning – there were technical difficulties with my internet last night and this version is after dealing with that.  There’s some heavy, disgusted signing at the start!  Drive on…it gets better, I promise!! 😉

I sort of indulged myself with this card, y’all!  I went to a favorite standby – the retiring Christmas Happiness stamp set and Merry Music DSP – to make today’s Christmas Card.  Take a look-see:

The layout is courtesy of this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge:

I started with a piece of striped Cherry Cobbler paper from the Be Merry DSP and adhered it to the front of a Basic Black card base with Liquid Glue.

My Merry Music DSP art piece is stamped a few times with some Garden Green pine boughs from the Christmas Happiness stamp set.  I stamped them a couple times full strength and once without re-inking.  Then I added a couple of pine cones – the outline image was stamped in Early Espresso and the fill-in image in Soft Suede.

I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Basic Black mat and then popped it over the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

To make the sentiment, I inked the words separately in Cherry Cobbler – and stamped them in a straight line (the sentiment image has them stacked) – on a strip of Whisper White card stock.  I snipped a banner in one end and then edged the banner with my Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Write Marker.  I used Liquid Glue and a single Mini Stampin’ Dimensional (under the left end) to adhere it to the card front.

I added a few Cherry Cobbler Enamel Shapes and a Linen Thread Billie Moan bow and the card front was done!

On the inside, I repeated the Be Merry DSP to cover the inside of the card base.  Then I stamped a second Christmas Happiness sentiment in Cherry Cobbler on a Whisper White panel.  Over that, I stamped a pine bough in stamped-off-once Garden Green and added a Cherry Cobbler Enamel Shape.

I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Basic Black mat and into the card base, and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got a Garden Green Christmas Happiness pine bough and an Early Espresso/Soft Suede pine cone on the front…

…and more of the Be Merry DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Christmas Happiness pine boughs and Merry Music DSP – a classically perfectly Christmas card!!  Hope you like – and are making sure this beautiful pair is in your stash before it’s gone forever!

Finn Fan Fix  

On Saturday, we left early in the morning – well, “early” is a bit of an exxageration.  We left at 7am – after debating the wisdom of driving out in The Big Snow Event of 2017.  But we ended up deciding to give it a shot and we headed out to go up to NC to check on our property up there and get a couple of things done.

This is how it looked as we left…

Y’all.  It is NOT supposed to look like that in Atlanta.  Seriously.

We stopped to top off the fuel tank – just in case…

While Wayne took care of that, I took a picture of the Cracker Barrel…

…and the Man relaxed in comfort in the back of the truck.

He had his bed and a blankie.  And his breakfast in a bowl right in front of him.  You can see his ears pulled back – he’s listening to his Dad clanking around with the fuel pump.

We had a great weekend – the snow continued much of the way but the roads were clear.  Finny had a good time – although I think some of the fun of riding was replaced by boredom!

I’ve got some really fun pictures to show you in the next few days!

Finn Fan Fix  

We spent Saturday traveling – Finn had a BIG ride – and was quite ready to be done with that, thank-you-very-much!

I have lots of pictures of him – some so sweet….you’ll get a cavity just looking at him.

But – couldn’t get them from the phone to the computer on Saturday night.  So – you’ll have to make do with a picture from Friday’s “snow event”.

Can you see how long that branch is?!?  He kept picking it up and trying to carry it and it would get stuck between two trees.  So he’d drop it and circle round trying to come at it a different way.  He managed to moved it around some – but I don’t think he ever made it to his final destination.

Which I’m pretty sure was in the house! 🙁

Stampin’ Up! Snowflake Sentiments for Stamp Ink Paper #128

Hey, y’all!  Welcome to Tuesday and another fun challenge from Stamp Ink Paper!  Before we get started, though, let me remind you that the next reservation window for the new Stamparatus is opening today at 2PM Mountain Time!  Be sure to get logged into my Online Store and place your reservation!

Onward! Our Stamp Ink Paper Challenge #128 this week is a theme challenge…

I decided to be a little obvious and used the Snowflake Sentiments and matching Swirly Snowflakes Thinlits.  And I added a little Sheltering Tree.  Take a look-see:  

I was also playing along with a couple of challenges to help me with colors and ideas!  

The first, from the Global Design Project, was a CASE the Designer challenge.  

And the second, from Sunday Stamps, informed the color combination!  

So – I started with a piece of the Cherrry Cobbler striped paper from the Be Merry DSP and matted it with Fast Fuse onto a Cherry Cobbler mat.  For the middle panel, I cut a smaller piece of Whisper White card stock.  Using wedges of Stampin’ Sponge, I started with Basic Gray Archival Ink around the top of the panel, and then transitioned to Smoky Slate.  I kept the bottom of the inked area sort of irregular – to look like snow drifts!  Pssst…even though there wasn’t any Pool Party in the challenge colors, I used just a bare touch of it in the gray sky to give it more depth and wintery color!!

Next up, I stamped the bare-limbed tree from the Sheltering Tree stamp set in Basic Gray Archival Ink.  Then I embossed the panel in the Soflty Falling TIEF and matted it on Cherry Cobbler.  

The sentiment, from the Snowflake Sentiments stamp set, is stamped in Cherry Cobbler ink on a piece of Vellum card stock and cut with the largest oval die in the Stitched Shapes Framelits.

 

I cut some snowflakes with the Swirly Snowflakes Thinlits.  The Silver Glimmer Paper snowflakes were cut with the long multi-snowflake die and snipped apart.  I adhered part of one them to the card front – where it would end up under the art panel.  Once it was down, I added the sponged and embossed panel with Fast Fuse and a touch of Liquid Glue (over the Glimmer Paper snowflake).  Then I added the second Silver snowflake with Liquid Glue.

The other snowflakes are cut from Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper.  I adhered them to the vellum sentiment oval and then used Mini Dimensionals under them and popped the oval onto the card front.

I made a Billie Moan bow with some new Silver Baker’s Twine from the 2018 Occasions Catalog and adhered it with a Glue Dot (and there’s a Mini Dimensional under it, too!).  I stuck one of the Dazzling Diamonds snowflakes on with another Glue Dot and then added a small Clear Facteted Gem.  I also added those Gems to the other snowflakes and the card front was done!

On the inside, I matted more of the Be Merry DSP on Cherry Cobbler and added a Cherry Cobbler-matted smaller Whisper White panel with Fast Fuse.  Then I adhered a Silver Glimmer Paper Swirly Snowflake die cut with Liquid Glue.

I Fast Fuse’d the liner into my Basic Gray card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals, and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got a snowflake from the Snowflake Sentiments stamp set – heat embossed in Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder – on the front…

…and more of the striped paper from the Be Merry DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I sorta love this gray snowy day – and the Softly Falling TIEF really helps it looks like snow drifts building up, don’t you think?  The Snowflake Sentiments stamp set and Swirly Snowflake Thinlits are carrying over at least into the Occasions Catalog – whoo-hoo – but the 10% off bundle price will go away – so grab it now if you don’t have it!!  Hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix  

Thought I’d show you a couple more shots of our meeting yesterday!  We had so much fun – and so did the Man!  Although – he was awfully busy…

Monitoring the activities of his little “flock”…

…wondering what in the world his mom is doing that’s making her look so danged goofy…

…and finally…well.  He’s not in this picture.  He’s behind me snoring.  A guy still has to get his nap time in!!

I just wanted to show you this one – it’s a great shot of us all intently making our Bubble Over cards – that I’ll share with you a little later this week! We have so much fun at our meetings. Wouldn’t you like to join us?!?  🙂
