Christmas

Stampin’ Up! Flourish Filigree in Copper and Merry Merlot

Good Saturday morning, y’all, from the Ellijay mountains in North Georgia!

As I write this, we’re doing shoebox swaps after our fine dinner prepared by Chef James!  Check out the Finn-Fan-Fix-not-featuring-Finn for more on our Retreat!

The card I have for you today is an elegant Christmas project using the new Flourish Filigree stamp set and some Joyous Noel Specialty DSP.  Take a look-see:

I played along with the Global-Design-Project challenge this week which is a CASE the Designer challenge – with guest designer Kerstin Kreis.

I started with a piece of the Joyous Noel Specialty DSP that I matted on Crumb Cake, using Liquid Glue, for the card front.

On a piece of Merry Merlot, I stamped the large-and-lovely filigree image from Flourish Filigree in Versamark – then I sprinkled it with Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  Then I heated it up with my Heat Tool.

When it had cooled, I cut the panel down to size and matted it on Crumb Cake.  Then I adhered the panel to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I used some Glue Dots to add a couple of new Snowflakes & Stars Wire Elements down in the corner.

I stamped the sentiment from Flourish Filigree in Merry Merlot on a piece of Crumb Cake, then punched it with the Pretty Label Punch.  I added a few Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the punched sentiment and used them to wind several loops of Copper Metallic Thread.  Then I popped the sentiment over the Wire Snowflakes.

On the inside, I matted more of the Joyous Noel Specialty DSP on Crumb Cake.  On a Whisper White panel, I stamped the filigree image in stamped-off-once Crumb Cake in the corner.  Over that I added a second sentiment from Flourish Filigree in Merry Merlot.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Crumb Cake mat and then onto the matted DSP and into my Merry Merlot card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got a full-strength Crumb Cake filigree image in the corner…

…and then I added a little more Joyous Noel DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Elegant in Copper and Merry Merlot – the Flourish Filigree stamp set shines atop Joyous Noel Specialty DSP!  Wonderful for Christmas, don’t you think?  I hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix

Today (Friday), Finny is keeping his Dad company in Atlanta while I’m up in Ellijay enjoying a wonderful weekend retreat with good friends, good food, and a great place!

I give you…Skyview Mountain Cottage!

This.  Place.  Is.  Gorgeous!

And – we have a most gracious host…meet James!

He’s cooking for us this weekend – and had snacks and drinks and coffee and appetizers all set out and ready for our arrival.

Heaven, y’all.

Just sayin’!

Here’s a little pictorial tour!

Upstairs is a wonderful living and dining room….

Check out that table!

Then the downstairs is the crafting area!

Love the frame on this downstairs mirror…

There’s a resident kitty.  Named Max.  He’s a real fireball!

And there are some other residents of the area checking us out!

We spent the first evening doing some Shoebox swaps and getting settled into our room!  And I did a presentation about doing Facebook Live videos!

Y’all checkout the Skyview Mountain Cottage website – and if you’re in this neck of the woods, you should try to get to one of their open-houses!  This spot was purpose-built FOR crafting!  It’s AMAZE-BALLS!

More on our weekend tomorrow!

Stampin’ Up! First Frost Heather Noel!

Hey guys – happy Hawwmp Day! 🙂

Two days to go before our Big Retreat!  I’m really excited and looking forward to the weekend!  Be watching – I’m quite sure I’ll post pictures of our activities!

So – before we get to the card – some news to share:


Stampin’ Up! posted the following update for us late on Monday:

Sales for the following holiday catalog products have exceeded Stampin’ Up!’s forecast and are continuing strong, resulting in a significant number of backorders. It will be at least 30 days before these items are back in stock.

  • 147905: Santa’s Workshop Memories & More Card Pack
  • 147807: Chicken Wire Elements

These products will remain available until TODAY, September 19 at 10:00 AM (MT).  After that, they will then be placed in not-orderable status until the stock has been replenished.

When you enter item numbers for these products in an order, you will receive a pop-up notification asking if you would like to be notified via email when these products are back in stock.  Completing the notification form will allow you to find out immediately when the status changes for these items and they are again available for purchase.

Thanks for your patience and understanding.  Click on the images below to head over to my online store to order these items before the numbers are temporarily turned off later this morning (remember 10am MOUNTAIN time!)


Okay – on with the card for today!  I made a Christmas card for you, using the new First Frost stamp set and the bundled Frosted Bouquet Framelits – over top of some gorgeous Frosted Floral Specialty DSP.  Take a look-see:

Back to my usual layering, collage-ifying self, heh? 😉

The layout for this one is from this week’s TGIF Challenge:

And the colors come from the FabFriday color challenge!

And the doily embellishment was inspired from the Inkspirations Designer’s Choice challenge!

 

I started by embossing a Whisper White panel in the Subtle Dynamic TIEF and matting it on a Powder Pink panel for the card front.

Then I used the little die in the new Frosted Bouquet Framelits to cut a bunch of berry branches from Balmy Blue and Galvanized Metallic Paper, which I adhered to the card front with Liquid Glue.

Over those, I popped a panel of Frosted Floral Specialty DSP (matted on Powder Pink) with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I made a two-ended banner from Galvanized Metallic Paper with the Banner Triple Punch and adhered it with Liquid Glue.  Then I adhered a Pearlized Doily over top.

I inked up the thistle image from First Frost – using my Highland Heather and Tranquil Tide Stampin’ Write Markers.  I made three of them and cut them with the matching die in Frosted Bouquet.

I also stamped a few flowers in Powder Pink and cut them with THEIR matching dies.  I adhered a few of them with Liquid Glue, adding in a few more Galvanized Paper berries.  For the final – smallest! – flower, I added a couple of Dimensionals on the back and used them to wind some Silver Metallic Thread – then popped it over the other flowers.

The sentiment, a wooden element from the Farmhouse Elements – was colored with my Dark Highland Heather Stampin’ Blend.  Then I spritzed it with some Frost White Shimmer Paper (dissolved in some rubbing alcohol in a Stampin’ Spritzer).  That darkened it up – almost to Gorgeous Grape!  I adhere it with a little Liquid Glue.

I added a few Frosted Epoxy Droplets – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped a First Frost sentiment in Highland Heather on a Whisper White panel.  Then I added some berries in Balmy Blue  – I stamped it twice without re-inking.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Powder Pink mat and into my Highland Heather card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got some more Balmy Blue berries and a couple of Highland Heather and Tranquil Tide thistles on the front…

…and I added a little more of the Frosted Floral Specialty DSP to the envelope flap.

El Voila!  Whew – back in my not-CAS wheelhouse! And I love the soft colors and beautiful florals in this First Frost bundle and coordinating Frosted Floral Specialty DSP!  I hope you like!

CLEARANCE RACK REFRESH

Clearance Rack

New items have been added to the Clearance Rack in the online store.  Supplies are limited, and with discounts up to 60%, products will go quickly. Shop now and stock up.


FAST FUSE ADDED TO CLEARANCE RACK (WHILE SUPPLIES LAST)

If you’re like us, you thought the days of Fast Fuse were done at Stampin’ Up! (You know . . . because we had already retired the product and everything!) However, our vendor reached out to us because they manufactured a surplus of Fast Fuse applicators and refills, and they offered to sell their excess Fast Fuse inventory to us. We took them up on their offer and purchased 2,500 Fast Fuse applicators and 72,000 Fast Fuse refills.Fast Fuse Adhesive

One of the reasons SU! decided to buy this product was because of feedback they received letting them know that some of you still wanted to purchase Fast Fuse applicators and refills, and this was the perfect opportunity to make it available once again through the Clearance Rack. Fast Fuse refills will be available to you for more than 50% off their original price! Because supplies are limited, you should go right to the online store to place your order instead of waiting to place a workshop order.  These’ll go fast, y’all!

See what I did there?  You’re welcome.

Get them right now while they last!  Order direct thru my Online Store with these links! 🙂

Finn Fan Fix

So.  It’s tax time at the Deatherage household.

Which means…it sucks.

Yes – we do our taxes in October.  Have for…ever?  Its just how we roll.

Anywho – it sucks.

Wayne and I get all stressed out until it’s done.

Finn – in a fit of solidarity – gets stressed out, too.

I mean…he can barely sleep.

It’s really pretty hard to watch.

I know he’s anxious for tax time to be over for another year so he can get some rest.

Poor puppy…

Stampin’ Up! Festive Farmhouse Christmas Fence!

Happy Friday, y’all!  I hope this finds you hale and hearty and not in the way of that slow-as-molasses-in-winter Florence!  Really, girl – get your butt in gear and get gone!

I have a sweet and simple little card for you today – and it uses goodies that you can still procure at a tidy little discount if you  purchase my Festive Farmhouse Special Bundle.  Check it out below!  And – look what you can make with the fun Farmhouse Christmas stamp set and bundled Farmhouse Framelits.  Take a look-see:

The layout was inspired by this week’s CAS(E) This Sketch challenge.

I started by adhering some pretty paper from the Festive Farmhouse DSP on a Mossy Meadow mat for the card front.

Next up, I cut the uber-cool fence die in the Farmhouse Framelits from a piece of Wood Textures DSP and snipped it down to the size I wanted.

I knew I wanted to pop the fence on my art panel – but I also knew (with even more certainty!!) – that I did NOT want to try to cut a ton of little Stampin’ Dimensional pieces.

So…I took a piece of Very Vanilla and embossed it in the Subtle Dynamic TIEF.  Then I used some Liquid Glue and adhered the fence to a small piece of the embossed card stock.  I aligned the top rail of the fence with the top edge of the card stock (so the pickets stick up above it).  I trimmed the excess from the sides.

See?

I set my masterpiece aside for a minute.

On a piece of Very Vanilla, I dry fit the fence and then used my Stamparatus to stamp the sentiment.  I stamped the panel in Cherry Cobbler.  On a second piece of Very Vanilla, I stamped it AGAIN in Mossy Meadow.  Then I used a small die from the Farmhouse Framelits to cut out “Christmas” and edged the label with my Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Write Marker.

In the top corners, I stamped the little wreath image from Farmhouse Christmas in Mossy Meadow, then colored it with my Light Old Olive Stampin’ Blend.

I ran the panel thru the Big Shot in the Subtle Dynamic TIEF and adhered it to a Mossy Meadow mat.

I popped my fence and my “Christmas” onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I used my Night Owl Thinlits to cut a couple of little pine boughs from Mossy Meadow.  I also cut some Cherry Cobbler bows with the die from the Farmhouse Framelits.  I adhered the pine boughs and bows with Liquid Glue.

I tied a bow from Cherry Cobbler Farmhouse Cotton Twine and adhered it with a Glue Dot.  Finally, I adhered the panel to the card front with Liquid Glue.

On the inside, on a Very Vanilla panel, I stamped the second sentiment from Farmhouse Christmas in Cherry Cobbler.  Over that, in stamped-off-once Crumb Cake, I added the big house image.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Mossy Meadow 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 another Farmhouse Christmas house in Crumb Cake on the front.  I also stamped a little wreath in Mossy Meadow and colored it with my Old Olive and Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Write Markers.

…and I added a little more Festive Farmhouse DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  A beautifully decorated fence, all ready for Christmas festivities!  The Festive Farmhouse suite, with the Farmhouse Christmas stamp set and bundled Farmhouse Framelits, will help you create many wonderful Christmas projects, don’t you think!?  I hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix

As I write this on Thursday evening, we’re watching the Weather channel.

I mean…isn’t everyone?

Here in south Atlanta, we’re not expecting any “hurricane” weather – probably some wind and rain near the end of the weekend.

For now, at least, we’ve got humidity.

As in HU. MI. DI. TY!  Like…miserable.

So far I’ve been able to keep doing my morning walks – and (so far!), Finn has been hanging in there.

In the evening, I do a short walk to and from the barn to feed.

Finn does the “to” portion…on paw…

…gets a ginormous hose drink in the barn…

THAT’s a powerful thirst!

And then he – and his dad – keep me company on the second half of the walk.

Smart boys!

Stampin’ Up! Feathers & Frost for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Happy Thursday, y’all – and welcome to another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!! Today’s a sketch challenge and I know you’ll see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop.

I recently added a few ( 😉 ) things to my stash from the 2018 Holiday Catalog – one of which is the pretty Feathers & Frost stamp set.  So I used it, along with a little Frosted Floral Specialty DSP to make today’s offering.  Take a look-see:

Here’s the sketch we were all working with…tip your head to the side.  You’ll see it!

And I also got a little help with my color scheme from this week’s color challenge from The Paper Players to make my non-tradionally colored Christmas card.

I started with a piece of Mint Macaron paper from the Frosted Floral Specialty DSP and matted it on Crumb Cake for the card front.  The next layer – also from Frosted Floral – is a Blackberry Bliss paper, matted on Crumb Cake and adhered to the card front with Liquid Glue.

For the art, I stamped the floral frame from the Feathers & Frost stamp set in Mint Macaron on a Whisper White rectangle.  I inked half the image at a time and stamped it twice.

If you’re following along, you know that means there’s a gap in the image – under the sentiment.  Yes.  That’s how you make a square image into a rectangular image! 😉

I colored the leaves with my Soft Sea Foam Light and Dark Stampin Blends, and colored the little berries with my Dark Petal Pink Blend.  The sentiment, from Feathers & Frost, is stamped in Blackberry Bliss.

Then I popped the panel onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The second portion of the sentiment is heat embossed in Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder on a Crumb Cake strip that I bannerized the ends of with my Paper Snips.

On a piece of scrap Whisper White, I stamped three flowers and a leaf image from Feathers & Frost in Crumb Cake.  I colored them with Soft Sea Foam and Petal Pink Blends, then fussy cut them.  I also punched three Sprig Punch leaves from Vellum card stock, two of which I adhered to the art panel with Liquid Glue.  Then I used a few Glue Dots to adhere a length of 5/8″ Burlap Ribbon over the sprigs (and the image gap! 😉 ).

I put a few Glue Dots on the back of the sentiment strip and used them to wind some Gold Metallic Thread, then to adhere the strip to the Burlap Ribbon.  With Liquid Glue, I added a couple of the fussy cut flowers, then added the final Vellum Sprig and popped the last flower on with a Stampin’ Dimensional.

I finished the card front off with a few Share What You Love Artisan Pearls in Petal Pink and Mint Macaron.

On the inside, I stamped a second sentiment from Feathers & Frost in Blackberry Bliss on a Whisper White panel.  I added a couple of flowers in Crumb Cake and colored them with my Petal Pink and Soft Sea Foam Blends.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Crumb Cake mat and into my Petal Pink card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got a few more Feathers & Frost flowers on the front…

…and I added a little more Frosted Floral Specialty DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This Feathers & Frost stamp set is a bit of a sleeper – easy to pass by in the catalog.  But – it’s so pretty – and I haven’t even used the sweet little bird images that are also in the set!  I hope you like – and that you’ll take a gander at it!

Stampin’ Up! Perfectly Peaceful Poinsettias

‘Sup, y’all?  Hope your weekend is starting out well – and that you’ve got plans to do something fun! 🙂

When I ordered all the goodies for my shares, I procured a few more goodies from the Holiday Catalog.  Some of which I’d been pining for since I saw them – but had tried to be good and wait until I got home from California to bring on board.  One of those is the gorgeous Peaceful Poinsettia stamp set and the bundled Detailed Poinsettia Thinlits.  Take a look-see:

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

I started out by stamping all over a Crumb Cake panel with the large poinsettia image in Crumb Cake ink for a tone-on-tone look.  Then I matted the panel on Mango Melody card stock to create the card front.

I wrapped a length of Shaded Spruce Metallic Ribbon around the panel, securing it in the back with a few Glue Dots.

I cut a strip of All Is Bright DSP, matted it on Mango Melody and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I stamped the Peaceful Poinsettia sentiment in Shaded Spruce on a Whisper White panel, using my Stamparatus.  In the top corner, in Tuxedo Black, I stamped a couple of berry branches from Peaceful Poinsettia.  I colored the berries with my Dark Mango Melody Stampin’ Blend Marker.  Then I matted the panel on Mango Melody and attached it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I stamped the large Poinsettia and a holly sprig in Tuxedo Black on Whisper White, then cut them with the matching die in the Detailed Poinsettia Thinlits.  I colored the two images with my Dark and Light Shaded Spruce, Cherry Cobbler and Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends.

The holly sprig is adhered to the sentiment panel with Liquid Glue, and then the Poinsettia is popped on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I colored three Pearl Basic Jewels with my Dark Mango Melody Blend and adhered them in the center of the Poinsettia.  Finally, I tied a little bow from the Shaded Spruce Metallic Ribbon and adhered it with a Glue Dot.

On the inside, I added the Peaceful Poinsettia image in two corners of a Whisper White panel in Tuxedo Black and colored them with my Blends.  Then I added a second sentiment in Shaded Spruce.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Mango Melody mat and into my Shaded Spruce card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another Peaceful Poinsettia on the front (I stuck my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig acetate panel that I’ve held onto inside the envelope to protect it from Blend-Bleed-Thru!)…

…and I adhered a little more of the All Is Bright DSP to the envelope flap.

Et voila!  A perfectly positioned Peaceful Pointettia positively captivates, does it not? 😉  And, I love that these gorgeous images even have their own dies in the Detailed Poinsettia Thinlits!  Hope you like!

So – I’m signed up on a website called IHeartDogs.com.  Each day they send me articles about dogs – and, of course, fun products that I can (and do!) buy that help feed shelter dogs and other good dog-deeds.

One of those articles was about how dogs sleep (https://iheartdogs.com/your-dogs-sleeping-habits-can-reveal-secrets-about-their-health-personality/).

By which I mean the position in which they like to sleep.

“Does your pooch simply roll on her back with her paws dangling or stretched up to the sky? This is the ultimate sign of a carefree sleeper. It’s a very vulnerable position, so your pup feels safe and confident enough to doze off this way. Also, it’s a wonderful way for a warm dog to cool off!

Dogs who assume this sleeping position usually tend to be very laid-back and have an independent streak,” says Little Things.

Uhmmm.  Yep.

Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Delicate Baubles

Happy Friday, y’all!  I’d like to make another plug for permanent, every-week, all-the-time, FOUR-DAY WORK WEEKS!!

Who’s with me!? 😉

So – in the mail yesterday I got two ginormous brown boxes with the Stampin’ Up! logo all over the sides!  Yep – all my Shares goodies are IN THE HOUSE!  If you ordered a share (you know who you are!!), I’ll be chopping and cutting and winding today and thru the weekend and will get your goodies in the mail quick as I can do it!  You’re going to love what you receive!

One of the goodies – for those of you who ordered I Want It All or DSP shares – is the new Festive Farmhouse DSP.  I used some gorgeous plaid paper from that pack – and I sheshe’d it up a bit with a couple of stamped images and die cuts from the new Beautiful Baubles and bundled Detailed Baubles Thinlits.  Take a look-see:

My layout was inspired by the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches this week!

I went with one of my favorite color combos – Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake and Mossy Meadow.  With some glittery Copper tossed in for good measure.  I love the glitter against the vintag-y Crumb Cake and plaid from the Festive Farmhouse DSP, don’t you?

To begin, I matted a piece of the Festive Farmhouse plaid paper on a Crumb Cake mat for the card front.

Next I took an asymmetrical piece of Crumb Cake card stock and embossed it in the new-and-awesome Corrugated Dynamic TIEF.  Then I tore the edges – making it even more assymetric.  I tap-tap-tapped all four edges on my Versamark Pad, sprinkled Copper Stampin’ Embossing Powder on them, and heated them with my Heat Tool.  Then I used Tear & Tape Adhesive to adhere the panel to the card front.

Note:  I highly recommend Tear & Tape when you’re trying to stick a Corrugated DTIEF panel to anything.  I suspect you’ll be much happier with the resulting stick-to-it-ive-ness than if you use SNAIL or even Liquid Glue!

Next up, I cut two die cut shapes from the new Detailed Baubles Thinlits from a piece of Copper Joyous Noel 6″ x 6″ Glimmer Paper.  I adhered the lovely large circle to the card front with Liquid Glue.

With my 2 1/4″ Circle Punch, I cut a Cherry Cobbler circle and adhered the smaller ornament to it with Liquid Glue.  Then I popped that onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The sentiment, from Beautiful Baubles, is stamped in Versamark on Crumb Cake and heat embossed with Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  Then I cut it with the little label die in the Night Owl Thinlits.

I edged the banner with my Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Write Marker and then adhered it with some Liquid Glue and Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut a couple of Mossy Meadow pine boughs with my Pretty Pines Thinlits, and a couple of Copper Glimmer Paper boughs from the Night Owl Thinlits and adhered them with Liquid Glue.  Then I added a little bow tied with Cherry Cobbler Twine from the Festive Farmhouse Cotton Twine pack.

On the inside, I stamped the large ornament from Beautiful Baubles in Cherry Cobbler on a Whisper White panel.  Then I added a second sentiment in Crumb Cake.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Crumb Cake mat and into my Mossy Meadow card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another Beautiful Baubles ornament in Cherry Cobbler on the front…

…and I added a little more Festive Farmhouse plaid DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I love all the texture on this card – the plaid Festive Farmhouse DSP and the Corrugated Crumb Cake panel.  Add in the Coppery Glimmer from the Detailed Baubles die cuts and…some Mossy Meadow pine boughs?  Yep.  I hope you like!

This past couple of days, I’ve added a little extra jogging into my morning exercise routine.  I’m going to be spending a couple of weeks at 8500′ in Colorado – where the O2 isn’t actually just free for the taking like it is here!  So I figure I’d best get a little aerobic head-start!

I am gobsmacked that 1) I CAN jog…2) I even WANT to jog and 3) I can JOG!!!

Finn-y, as the good wing-man he is, goes with me.

He’s a smart boy.  On the second lap, he stops short of the turn-around point and waits for me to go up and come back.

Between the morning 2+ miles and a trip to the mailbox and back in the afternoon, he’s rolling about 3 miles each day.

It’s not easy being a fit Aussie.

This is the end result.

That white strip on the right side of the picture is the air conditioning vent! He staggers in the house and simply collapses.

Smart, smart dog-a-lous!

Stampin’ Up! Joyous Dashing Deer Sneak Peek Fun Fold!

Good morning, my peeps!

Well – I made a dent in my crafting spot yesterday.  Sorta got distracted by alphabetizing all my stamps and getting them back in their spot.  And rainbow-izing my Stampin’ Blends.

Don’t judge – these are very important organizing necessities!

And – with it all organized (for a half-a-second!) I can get back to card making! 🙂

Fortunately, I made a card last week before I left Cali – so…here we go!  I’m using the pretty new Dashing Deer bundle in the 2018 Holiday Catalog and I made it into an Easel Fun Fold card!  Take a look-see:

The layout for the front of my easel is from this week’s MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge!

And – since it’s a Fun Fold…so I played along with the Paper Craft Crew Challenge!

Finally – I’m pretty sure Christmas is an “Occasion”, so….boom – playing along with Helen at the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge!

This is one of my favorite fun-folds, and it’s so darned easy!

I started with a piece of Gray Granite card stock, cut to 4 1/4″ x 11″ – and I scored and folded it at 5 1/2″ and then again at 8 3/8″ – to make the easel card base.

For the card front, I used my Pretty Pines pine bough and pinecone dies, and the new Big Shot Embossing Pads, to emboss a Whisper White panel with pine-y goodness.  Then I adhered the panel to a Tranquil Tide mat with Liquid Glue.

 

I cut a piece of Joyous Noel Specialty DSP and matted it on Tranquil Tide, then adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

For the art, I cut a Stitched Shapes Framelits circle and embossed it in the Pinewood Planks Dynamic TIEF, then popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The Detailed Deer is cut from a piece of Copper paper in the new Joyous Noel 6″ x 6″ Glimmer Paper – then I stuck him on the embossed circle with Liquid Glue.

I stamped the Dashing Deer sentiment in Merry Merlot onto a piece of Whisper White and cut it out with the label die in the new Night Owl Thinlits (coming on 5 Sept in the Holiday Catalog).  Then I used a little Liquid Glue under the left end and a Stampin’ Dimensional on the right side to adhere it.  See how I so cleverly tucked the sentiment under the deer’s front leg?

Yes – I’m an artistic genius. 😉

While I had the Night Owl Thinlits out, I cut a bunch of snowflake-y stars out of the Merry Merlot Joyous Noel 6″ x 6″ Glimmer Paper and adhered them with Liquid Glue hither and thither about the card front – and that was it!

I made the easel “stop” by matting a little more Joyous Noel Specialty DSP on Tranquil Tide and adhering it to a Whisper White panel.  I colored a new Festive Farmhouse Elements by pressing it into my Merry Merlot ink pad, then I adhered it to the DSP strip with Liquid Glue.

I stamped a second Dashing Deer sentiment in Merry Merlot.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Tranquil Tide mat and into the Gray Granite card base.  Then I used Liquid Glue to adhere the smaller flap of the card front to the lower part of the card front – that’s how the easel is formed!  And that was it for the card!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got a smaller Gold-embossed Dashing Deer on the front – I inked the image in Versamark, stamped the envelope and sprinkled it with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder, then heated it up with my Heat Tool…oooh – now you can really see the embossed pine cones…. 🙂

…then I added some more of the Joyous Noel Specialty DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  The easel fold gives what is really a basic card a whole ‘nuther level of “WOW”, does it not?!  And it doesn’t hurt to have beautiful Dashing Deer and Detailed Deer leaping all about, either!  Especially with the added benefit of some gorgeous Joyous Noel Specialty DSP.  Hope you like!

We had a little…Man-scaping to do when I got home.  The Menfolk had been playing in the sticker grass (apparently) AND not doing a super-good job with the brush.

And ya just can’t do that when you wear a skirt and leggings and pantaloonies!!

So – Mom got after it!

Still got some more to do – but a Man can only be -scaped for so long before he starts to get antsy!  And worried about the status of his Man-card!

Stampin’ Up! Many Blessings Merry Christmas

Merry Monday, y’all!

Oxymoron much, Mare?!? 😉

Sorry to have missed you guys last night – but will be back in the swing of things next week.  Promise!

I made a quick and simple little number for you today – using the pretty new Many Blessings stamp set from the 2018 Holiday Catalog.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one came from the sketch side of this week’s Fusion challenge!

And the colors come from the FabFriday color challenge – although I hadn’t taken any Calypso Coral with me to Cali – so I substituted Grapefruit Grove!

I started with a piece of Whisper White card stock and, in Call Me Clover ink, stamped the wreath image from Many Blessings – letting it hang off the edge of the panel to create the sketch shape.  I used my Lemon Lime Twist Stampin’ Write Marker to fill in the leaves.

Then I added berries in Poppy Parade.

With my Grapefruit Grove, I stamped the little corner image – also from Many Blessings – in the three corners.  I added a little Call Me Clover with my Stampin’ Write Marker, and then adhered some small dots from the new Santa’s Workshop Enamel Shapes (in the 2018 Holiday Catalog – and a FREE gift from me for ordering one of my I Want It All Catalog Shares!).

Then I adhered the panel to a Lemon Lime Twist mat with Liquid Glue.

I inked part of the Many Blessing sentiment in Poppy Parade and half in Grapefruit Grove (pretty easy since this is a photopolymer stamp set) and stamped it on a piece of Whisper White.  Then I cut it with the label die from the Stitched Labels Framelits (2018-2019 Annual Catalog).

I popped the sentiment on with a couple of Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Finally, I tied a little bow from Grapefruit Grove Nature’s Twine and adhered it with a dab of Liquid Glue to complete the card front!

On the inside, I repeated the Many Blessings corner flourishes in Grapefruit Grove, Call Me Clover and Poppy Parade Santa’s Workshop Enamel Shapes.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Lemon Lime Twist mat and into my Poppy Parade card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got a repeat of the Many Blessings flourishes on the front…

…and I added the wreath to the envelope flap!

 

Et Voila!  I love this Many Blessings set – it’s got such lovely images and sentiments covering Fall and Christmas!  Hope you like!

Check out Many Blessings on page 46 of your Holiday Catalog!

What?  Don’t have one?  Give me a shout and I’ll get one in the mail to you ASAP! 🙂

Well – we’re back! 🙂

Did I tell you I got up early on Saturday morning and went downstairs to their fitness center?  At 3:30??!  And yes, walked/jogged on the treadmill for 45 minutes.

I felt pretty righteous, really.

Until about 7pm – then I simply…crashed! LOL!

I was missing my treadmill from the hotel on Sunday.

Yeah.  Weird, I know.

But – while the treadmill is sort of no-brainer….and easy….it’s missing an important component!

Pantaloonies! 🙂

My little furry Finn-Mill!

Stampin’ Up! Swirls & Curls and a Beautiful Blizzard Sneak Peek

Happy Saturday, y’all!  I hope your weekend is going well.  If all goes as planned, this will go live about the time I’m boarding the airplane to head for the house!  Finally!  Can’t wait to get me some wiggle-butt!!

For all of you who didn’t click the “x” yesterday and read and commented on my weight loss post – thank you all so much!  I was rather overwhelmed by the response – and I appreciate y’all more than you know!

As a result of all those nice comments – I went ahead and just copied the post and made it into a page you can go to – so you’ll always have ready access to the tips and the link to Lose It.  Hope it will help!

My card today is a shimmery, non-traditionally-colored Christmas card using goodies that will be available on 5 Sept in the 2018 Holiday Catalog.  I used the new Swirls & Curls TIEF, plus a little Beautiful Blizzard and Merry Christmas Thinlits.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one comes from this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

I started with a piece of Highland Heather card stock and embossed it in the new Swirls & Curls TIEF.  Then I brushed it with some new Frost White Shimmer Paint.  I matted it on a piece of Smoky Slate card stock that I’d ALSO brushed with the Frost White Shimmer Paint.

Check out how shimmery this card really is! 🙂

Wowza!

I tore a little piece of new Chicken Wire Elements off and adhered it to the card front – Silver side up – with Liquid Glue.

For the snowflakes, I first brushed a piece of Whisper White card stock with Frost White and Champagne Shimmer Paint (yea – got a bit of a theme going here!) – then I cut it with the new Blizzard Thinlit die.

I adhered the smaller snowflake to the card front with Liquid Glue.

The sentiment is cut once from Smoky Slate and once from Basic Black card stocks with the new Merry Christmas Thinlits.  I brushed the Basic Black version with Frost White Shimmer Paint, adhered them in a stack (with the shimmery black one on top!) and adhered them to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I popped the last two snowflakes on with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a little bow from Silver & Pink Baker’s Twine and a few silver Metallic Shapes (which, I just now realized – are retired! 🙁  Sorry!  You could use Clear Rhinestone Basic Jewels, too )  – and that was it for the card front!

On the inside, I inked up the swirl image from the Beautiful Blizzard stamp set in Highland Heather, stamped it off once and then stamped a Whisper White panel.  I did that a few times, then added the snowflake image in full-strength Highland Heather.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Smoky Slate mat (that I’d shimmer-ized with Frost White Shimmer Paint) and then into a Powder Pink card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Beautiful Blizzard images on the front…

…and I put more Beautiful Blizzard goodness on the back of the envelope, too!

Et Voila!  This color scheme reminds my of my grandparents’ Christmas Tree when I was growing up – flocked white tree, pink and silver decorations!  So – non-traditional, for sure, but…still pretty!  Love the Swirls & Curls TIEF – especially all shimmer-ized!  And the fun Blizzard Thinlit really creates a…well…BLIZZARD of snowflakes with just one cut!  Hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Santa’s On His Way From Santa’s Workshop!

Happy Hawwmp Day, y’all!  Just a couple of sleeps and a wake-up and I’ll be on my way to Atlanta and my puppy and my ponies and kitties and hubby!  Whoo-hooo!

My card for today is cool.  Why?  Because not one ink pad was opened in the making of said card!

That’s right.  No ink.  No stamp set.  Just the wonderful Santa’s Workshop Memories & More Card pack (coming on 5 Sept in the new Holiday Catalog), a little card stock, twine and adhesive!  Take a look-see:

The fun layout was kind of loosely inspired by this week’s CAS(E) This Sketch layout.

Buckle up, buttercup – this is a quick one!

I started with the big and bold card from the Memories & More Card Pack, trimmed it a bit and matted it on Garden Green for the card front.  I wrapped a couple loops of Garden Green Baker’s Twine (coming in the new 2018 Holiday Catalog) around, securing it in the back with Glue Dots.

I trimmed the small Ho Ho Ho card, matted it on Garden Green and added it to the card front with Liquid Glue.  Then I did the exact same thing with Santa’s sleigh – he’s got some Dimensionals under the bottom and Liquid Glue for the top lefthand corner.

For my sentiment, I trimmed down a final Santa’s Workshop Memories & More Card.  It’s matted on Garden Green and popped on with a couple of Dimensionals.

I finished it off with a Garden Green Baker’s Twine bow tied around the twine already on the card and the card front was done!

On the inside – surprise! – I trimmed a big sentiment card from the pack!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the trimmed card to a Garden Green mat and then into my Poppy Parade card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got some holly stickers from the Card Pack on the front…

…and a couple more stickers on the back!

Et Voila!  A quick and fun Christmas card – and no inky fingers – thanks to all the wonderful cards and images, stickers and sentiments from the Santa’s Workshop Memories & More Card Pack!  Folks – Memories & More Card Packs…not just for scrapbooking!!  Hope you like!

TTFN
