Stampin’ Up! Christmas Happiness 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 for today’s sketch challenge, so be sure to check ’em all out when you get done here!  

Take a look at our sketch:

I used my fave stamp set from the new 2017 Holiday Catalog – Christmas Happiness – and added some Merry Music Specialty DSP (also in the new catty).  I also made some boughs with the Pretty Pines Thinlits, so…take a look-see:

I started with a piece of the new Merry Music Specialty DSP – but…it’s in black and white (which is cool – but not what I wanted for this particular card…) and I sponged it with Crumb Cake ink to vintage-ize it a little.  Then I matted it on Garden Green card stock.

The middle layer is a piece of Whisper White card stock that I stamped with the new Sheet Music background stamp in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  Then I tore it down to the size I wanted, sponged it with Crumb Cake and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

Using the Pretty Pines Thinlits, I cut a bunch of pine boughs from Garden Green, Always Artichoke and Copper Foil.  I cut each one – so I had a top and a bottom.  When I did my first dry-fit, here’s what it looked like.

I used a few Glue Dots across the card front and wound a length of Linen Thread and one of Copper Metallic Thread around in several loops, then I adhered my pine tops and bottoms randomly across the top and bottom of the panel.

For the center sentiment panel, I took the large pine bough image from Christmas Happiness and stamped it a few times in Always Artichoke on a panel of Very Vanilla card stock.  I stamped the first sentiment in Early Espresso on Very Vanilla and cut it with a Stitched Shapes Framelits circle.   It’s matted on Garden Green – cut with a Layering Circles Framelits die.

I popped the stamped panel over the card front with some Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Then I added the sentiment circle with more Dimensionals.  I made a “mat” with some of the new Jute Twine – wrapping two pieces around and securing then in the back with scotch tape.

I stamped some pine cones from Christmas Happiness – in Early Espresso for the outline image and Soft Suede for the fill, then I fussy them, and adhered them with Liquid Glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Using Linen Thread, I tied a “Billie Moan bow” and secured it with a Glue Dot and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped the Christmas Happiness pine bough in Always Artichoke on Very Vanilla.  I stamped it off twice on scrap paper before stamping my panel.  Over that, I added a second sentiment in Early Espresso.

I matted the panel on Garden Green and then into my Early Espresso card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got another Christmas Happiness pine cone (Early Espresso and Soft Suede) and some boughs (Always Artichoke) on the front…

…and I added more pine boughs on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Pines.  Pine Cones.  Music.  Vintage.  Yep – pretty much right smack in my sweet spot!  I hope like – and that you’ve got the Christmas Happiness set right at the top of your Wish List!  And don’t forget the Merry Music Specialty DSP! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Cheer and Snowflakes Video Sneak Peek

‘Sup, y’all!?  Having a good weekend?  Hope so! 🙂

Today’s our big All Things Stamping Sale – so you know where I’ll be!  We actually slogged our way thru a truly ginormous amount of NON-Stampin’ Up! things – stamp sets, inks, dies, papers, embellishment upon embellishment!  I could trace my progress thru this addictive hobby of ours…Tim Holtz, some Martha Stewart, lots of Ranger….yikes!  I hope it all sells – cuz I do not want to bring it all back!  

And, obviously, I’ve got a few (does 7 count as a “few”?!?) boxes of Stampin’ Up! stamps, dies, bundles, punches, papers, card stock, ribbons and embellishments going, too.  Which means I’m in for a few (I know a dozen does not count as a few…) trips from the van to the clubhouse where we’re setting up!  

Wish me luck! 🙂

As you’ve come to expect, today I’ll be giving you a cleverly cropped and twisted picture as a sneak peek into tonight’s video (which I have every intention of doing – so keep your fingers crossed that I get home and ready in time!!).  I’m using a few (not even gonna count them!) new goodies from the Holiday Catalog.  Year of Cheer and some Snowflake Sentiments will play a big role!  Here’s a look at the sneaky-peek:

So – keep your fingers crossed that I sell everything today – and am still conscious at 8pm Eastern tonight.  Where I hope I’ll see you over on my Stamps-N-Lingers Facebook page! Continue reading

Stampin’ Up! Carols of Christmas Bundle is Available Now!

Good morning, y’all!  Today’s the day!

Yep – it’s true – today you can finally – finally!! – order the Carols of Christmas stamp set and matching (and wondrous!) Card Front Builder Thinlits!!  Way to get started on those Christmas cards!

Now – for the past month or so, I’ve shared a few cards to give you some ideas and inspiration for using this beautiful set.  I think you’ll agree it’s a bit of a winner!!!

Take a look at the cards I’ve shared.  I think this little collection really shows how versatile this bundle really is!  Each picture will link you to the blog post that describes how to make that card!  And, of course, has all the products that you’ll need, so you can be sure that you’re all stocked up and ready to roll when your new goodies arrive!

My first card featured the Eastern Palace Specialty DSP and a wonderful color combination…Dapper Denim and Pool Party!  Check it out – there’s a video showing you how to make this one! 🙂

Next, I indulged my love of using Sheet Music on Christmas cards – or any other kind of card that I can figure out how to make it work on.  I love how this one turned out with the vintage look, complete with embossing and copper accents.  And – look at that – same exact sentiment, but a completely different look entirely! 🙂 Continue reading

Stampin’ Up! Z-Fold Snowy Carols of Christmas

Good morning, y’all – it’s Monday.

Again.

How in the world does the weekend fly by so darned fast?!?  Sigh…

If you were able to join me last night on my Facebook Live video – thanks so much!  I hope you enjoyed it.  If not, here’s a link to the video on YouTube!

The layout on the front panel was inspired by the sketch this week at the Fusion challenge blog!

The video shows you step-by-step how to make this card.  It starts with a Pool Party base, cut to 5 1/2″ x 10 3/4″ and scored and folded at 4 1/4″ and then at 3 1/4″ from that fold. One cool thing about this kind of card is that it fits inside a normal A2-sized envelope! 🙂

The large end panel – which is the same size as the inside of a regular A2 card – is stamped with the little sparkle image from Carols of Christmas in Pool Party ink and the flourish in Tranquil Tide.  I used my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to line the images up.

The sentiment, also from Carols of Christmas, is stamped in Tranquil Tide on a piece of Whisper White card stock, matted on Tranquil Tide and then Fast Fuse’d into the card on the center panel. Continue reading

Stampin’ Up! Fun Fold Carols of Christmas Video Sneak Peek

Mornin’, peeps!  Welcome to another Sunday Sneak Peek.

As has become my norm, I’m giving you a teensy look at the card we’re going to make tonight on my Facebook Live video at 8pm Eastern.  Here’s a link to the page, in case you don’t have it.

This is another one that uses the Carols of Christmas stamp set and bundled Card Front Builder Thinlits.  I might be loading you guys up with cards made with this cute bundle, cuz…1 Aug is just around the corner.  Like…on Tuesday!  And that’s when you can get this super-set for yourself!

I made this one with Tranquil Tide and Pool Party. And…Delightful Daisy DSP.  Here’s the sneaky peek…

As the post title implies, it’a a fun fold – a lot simpler than the one we did last week!  But still fun – and a nice little surprise for the recipient. Continue reading

Stampin’ Up! Carols of Christmas and a Foil Frenzy for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop



Happy Thursday, y’all – and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!  Kristi’s on vacation, but all the other ladies are hopping today, so be sure to check ’em all out when you get done here!

We had a color challenge this week – and they’re colors I really love together!  

But – I love them so much that when I made my card, I used Kraft and Crumb Cake!  Which I realized as I was typing this post.  LOL!  Hmmmm – well, you’ll have to squint your eyes and pretend you’re seeing Soft Suede!  

I used the Carols Of Christmas stamp set and some dies from the matching (and bundled!) Card Front Builder Thinlits to make my card today.  And I put it all together with some Foil Frenzy Specialty DSP.  Take a look-see:

My layout was inspired by the sketch at this week’s Fab Friday challenge. Continue reading

Stampin’ Up! Sheet Music Carols of Christmas

It’s….HAWWWMP Day, y’all!  More to the point – it’s looking good to go home on Friday.  So…two days and a wake-up then home home home!

Which is good!

My card today corresponds with the announcement I alluded to yesterday!

Starting on 1 August, Stampin’ Up! is opening an Early Release of the Carols of Christmas stamp set and the matching Card Front Builder Thinlits – you can even order the bundle and save 10%!!  And – if you’ve got Bonus Days Coupons, you can “spend” them on these fun Christmas goodies.  And – did you know that you can use multiple Bonus Days coupons on a single order?  

Yes, indeed!

So – do the math.  Buy the bundle and save 10%.

Collect three or four or even five – or more – coupons and take the $10 – $15….you get the picture…off.  Think of the savings!  

And – I can’t even do the math if you…joined Stampin’ Up! now and got the Carols of Christmas stamp set free in the Essentials Pack.  Then in August…take your 20% demonstrator discount off the Card Front Builder Thinlits and apply a few Bonus Days coupons!

Mind…Blown! 🙂

Watch for more information on the Carols Of Christmas bundle and how to order it as we get closer to the 1st, okay?

Last week, for my Sunday video, I made a card using this cool new bundle.  You can see it right here if you missed it!  I made another card today, but it looks completely different.  This time I added the new (and very very high on my list of favorite new stamps) Sheet Music background stamp.  Take a look-see:

My layout was inspired by the TGIF Sketch challenge this week.

..and it turned out that the CAS(ual) Fridays challenge was…

I started this one with a piece of Very Vanilla card stock, and on it I stamped the Sheet Music image in Soft Suede ink.  Then I sponged the edges with Crumb Cake.  Okay – maybe a little more than the edges – I even lightly went across the entire middle of the panel.  Then I matted it on a piece of Cherry Cobbler.

Next I cut a length of new 1/4″ Copper Trim and carefully pulled it apart so that it looks like some netting.  Using a short strip of Fast Fuse, I adhered the copper “net” to the card front.

My two banners are next, and I cut one from a piece of Cherry Cobbler DSP from the Be Merry DSP.  I lightly sponged it with my almost-dry Crumb Cake Sponge Dauber – just enough to make the white stars…not-so-white!  I punched the end into a banner with my Banner Triple Punch and adhered it with a little Liquid Glue.

The second banner is cut from some Copper Foil and embossed in the Woodland TIEF.  I cut the end with my Banner Triple Punch and adhered it over the top of the first banner. 

I wrapped some Linen Thread three times around the card front, securing it in the back with tape.  I used another little piece of tape on the front to pull the three strands together underneath where I knew my sentiment would go.

Speaking of the sentiment, it’s from the Carols of Christmas stamp set (duh, right?) and is heat embossed in Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder on a piece of Very Vanilla card stock.  I cut it out with a Stitched Shapes Framelits oval, sponged the edges with Crumb Cake and matted it on Cherry Cobbler – cut with a scalloped die from the Ovals Layering Framelits.  Then I popped it over the banners with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Using the two corner flower dies in the Card Front Builder THinlits, I cut two corners from another bit of Copper Foil.  I added a few of the copper flower cut-outs to the side of the sentiment oval – two with Liquid Glue and one with a Mini Stampin’ Dimensional.  Then I tied a double length bow of Linen Thread and adhered it with a Glue Dot.  And that was it for the card front.

On the inside, I started with another panel of Very Vanilla and sponged the edges with Crumb Cake.  Then I took those two Copper Foil cut out corners and fussy cut them to make them into flower-edged corners.  And I adhered them to the card panel with Liquid Glue.

I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat and into my Soft Suede card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got a little light sponging with Crumb Cake and then – when the sponging was completely dry – I stamped a few of the flowers and holly sprigs from the Carols of Christmas stamp set in Versamark Ink and heat embossed them with Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder…

… and I added a few more flowers and holly leaves in Copper on the envelope flap, too (you can’t see them – but they’re on both ends of the flap)!

Et Voila!  Carols of Christmas and the matching Card Front Builder Thinlits is going to be one of the most versatile Christmas bundles in your stash this year – and for many years to come!  Hope you like – and are busily planning on grabbing it up as soon as it’s available on the 1st of August!

Stampin’ Up! Sneak Peek Carols of Christmas in July!

Happy Monday, y’all!  Are you ready to start your week?  This one for me is going to bring some surprises, I think.  The work week may culminate in us going home early!  Guess I’ll know in a few days.  I have to hope that if we do, we don’t have to come back any time soon – getting a decent hotel in the middle of summer in Ft. Walton Beach… yikes! 🙂

If you were able to join me last night – thanks so much for spending some of your Sunday evening with me!  If you didn’t see me live, here’s a link to the video so you can see how to make this card.

I used the Carols of Christmas stamp set – which you can get right now for FREE when you join Stampin’ Up! – and the matching Card Front Builder Thinlits.  Which you can select to fill your Starter Kit!!  How cool is that?!?  Take a look see at what I did with this fun bundle.

I used some Eastern Palace paper to make a card front – it’s just a smidge smaller than the front of my Dapper Denim card front.  I adhered it right to the card front with some Liquid Glue.

For the center panel, I used a piece of Pool Party card stock and cut it with several of the dies in the new Card Front Builder Thinlits.  

I popped it over a slightly smaller panel of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper (I show all of this in the video!) with Stampin’ Dimensionals and some Liquid Glue.  Then I used some Fast Fuse and wound a few loops of Silver Mini Sequin Trim around – underneath my planned sentiment.

I also stamped a Chocolate Chip deer on Whisper White, cut him with the matching die in the Card Front Builder Thinlits and adhered him with Liquid Glue and a Mini Stampin’ Dimensional.

To make the sentiment, I inked the sentiment from the Carols of Christmas stamp set in Pool Party, then used a Sponge Dauber to ink the edges with Dapper Denim.  I stamped the shaded image on a piece of Whisper White and then cut it with a Stitched Shapes Framelits.  I didn’t use a mat for this, and popped it over the top of the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  And that was it for the card front!

On the inside, I used some Liquid Glue to adhere some of the cut-outs that I’d saved from making the card front to a Whisper White panel.

I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Pool Party mat and into the Dapper Denim card base and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another Pool Party cut out and I surrounded it with some stamped snowflakes from Carols of Christmas in Pool Party ink…

…and I added a little more of the Eastern Palace Specialty DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  How pretty is this stamp set and matching Thinlits?  And this doesn’t even touch on all the images and die cuts that this Carols of Christmas bundle brings to the table!  Remember – it’s never too early to start making Christmas cards – and I think this set will be a go-to for you!  Hope you like!

Mary

Use this host code when you order and receive a free gift from me! But, 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. The free gift is your choice of any item valued up to $10.00 from the 2017-2018 Annual Catalog! And – you can even select one of the Host-exclusive sets! See my Rewards page for more details.


Last Day to Earn Double Peppermint Rewards Points!

All orders of $50 or higher, until Sunday, 9 July – will earn double peppermint points!  What a perfect time to earn the 16 points that will snag you a free $40 gift from me!!  Need more info about my Punkin’ Head Rewards Program?  Check it out right here!  And here’s an easy link to my Online Store to get you started!


Bonus Days Going On Now!

For every $50 you spend in July (before shipping and tax), you’ll get a $5 Bonus Days coupon that you can use in the month of August!
Check out the details:

  • There’s no limit to the number of coupons participants can receive per order or throughout the duration of the promotion.
  • An email address is required to participate; Bonus Days coupon codes can only be delivered via email.
  • All order types (including Demonstrator orders!) qualify for this promotion excluding Starter Kits.

Which all means…this is a perfect time to start crossing some of those goodies off that you’ve got on your Wish List!


This is the Best Time All Year to Join Stampin’ Up!!

You’ll get more free goodies than Santa’s got in his bottomless bag – all for joining Stampin’ Up! during the Christmas in July promotion!  



So – we already know that spending $99 and getting $125 worth of Stampin’ Up! is a heckuva good deal – especially since it also includes Free Shipping (that saves you 10% right there!).

But – add in the Stampin’ Up! Christmas in July Essentials Pack – which you’ll ALSO get for FREE this month and…WOWWWWWW!!  THAT’S what I call a Christmas present!

Take a look-see at what you get in the Essentials Pack:

  • Paper Snips (this is a $10 value).  I flat love these!  You’ve seen me make my decorated envelope flaps – this is my go-to tool for that and all my fussy cutting!
  • SNAIL Adhesive ($7 value).  Easy to use adhesive for almost every task.
  • Grid Paper ($11 value).  Such a simple thing – and yet….so useful.  And you get so many sheets – this one package will last you a LOOOOOONG time!
  • Two Clear “D” Blocks ($17 value).  Keep one.  Give one away to a friend!  Or…you know.  Keep them both for yourself! 😉
  • Bone Folder ($7 value).  An oft-overlooked but essential tool for scoring, folding or curling!
  • BONUS (and this is HUGE!):  Carols of Christmas Stamp Set from the upcoming holiday catalog ($20 value).  I suspect this one could be your go-to for the Holidays.  And you’ll get it early so you can get a head start on your Christmas Cards.  Take a look-see:


So….you get $72 worth of tools for free – meaning your $125 Starter Kit can include all the FUN stamp sets and bundles and paper and and and…that you WANT!  SU!’s covering what you NEED!  Cool, huh?

Want to know what else you’ll get?  Well – check it all out on my Promotions Page!  I think you’ll agree – it a most wonderful time of the year to join us!!


If you need any stamping supplies, I’d be very happy to be your Demonstrator. Just click on the Order Stampin’ Up! Online Now button on the right side of the screen to go directly to my online store or drop me an email if you have any questions. Happy Stamping!
