Stampin’ Up! Blessings of Home Sneak Peek Birthday Card

Happy Happy Hawwwwmp DAY!!  It’s the middle of the week and….it’s 24-Hour Stamp Sale Day.

Guess how long the 24-hour Sale is going to last??

Any thoughts?

YES!  TWENTY-FOUR HOURS!!  Good job!  One day only!  So…be sure to snag your fave Cling stamps from the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog at a cool 15% off!  And – that would even apply if you were adding those Cling stamps to a Starter Kit.  Wow!! 😉

Now.  I have a special treat for you today!  One of the perks of being a Demonstrator is getting to SEE and USE new products before anyone else!  I’ve got a sneak peek at some new goodies – called the Heart & Home Suite – from the Jan – Jun 2022 Mini Catalog.  The DSP has the same name….Heart & Home…and the anchor bundle is called the Blessings of Home Bundle!  You’ll be able to get them ALL on 4 Jan 2022!  Take a look-see:

For me, this card looks like a Fall garden in the south – a little color and rich browns!  So…I played along with the Inspired. By. Challenge.

And I also think this fits The Paper Players challenge this week!  Lots of Cinnnamon Cider is the new…lots of white?? 😉

I started with some of the gorgeous Heart & Home DSP that matted on Pale Papaya for the card front. Then I matted a smaller piece on Pale Papaya and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

This paper is wonderful – colorful, organic patterns on one side and Basic Gray/White woodgrain patterns on the other!

On a piece of Basic White, I stamped the smaller floral from the Blessings of Home stamp set (coming on 4 Jan 2022!) in Basic Gray – then I cut it with the matching die in the bundled Flowers of Home die set.

I colored the flower with my Pale Papaya and Cinnamon Cider Stampin’ Blends.

I popped the flower onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The sentiment, also from Blessings of Home, is stamped in Cinnamon Cider on a strip of the woodgrain Heart & Home DSP.

I snipped banner ends in the strip and then adhered it over the flowers using Liquid Glue and a couple of Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a Bumble Bee Trinket with a Glue Dot and a few Basic Gray dots from the new Classic Matte Dots (these are coming in the new catalog and are seriously pretty!!) – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped the flower image again in Basic Gray in the corner of a Basic White panel.  I colored it with my Pale Papaya and Cinnamon Cider Stampin’ Blends Combos, then added a few Classic Matte Dots.

I used Stampin’ Seal to adhere the panel to a Pale Papaya mat and into my Cinnamon Cider card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Basic White Medium Envelope got the Blessings of Home floral on the front…

…and more of this stunning Heart & Home DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Wow – I am SOOO excited to see the new catalog – if this Blessings of Home bundle and gorgeous Heart & Home DSP is any indication of what we’re going to find….whooo-dawg!  It’s going to be amazing!  Are YOU excited for it, too?!?

I hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix 

Finn got mail on Monday!

His Super Sniffer (and the return address!) told him that SOMETHING YUMMY WAS IN THERE!!

Opening it – with his “help”! – revealed TWO giant decorated Dog cookies from Aunty Karen!!

He immediately commenced to doing any and everything he could do to get me to OPEN THE PACKAGE!!

It took me a second to open the package – again with his…”HELP”!  But…we finally had success!

Coming in hot!


He DID savor it – licked the “frosting” off – then nibbled delicately at the cookie.

He’d like to know where that Halloween cookie is…

Afterwards….Cookie Coma!

Thanks, Aunty K! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Festive & Bright Christmas Card – a Retreat Card!

Hello, y’all – it’s Tuesday!  Tuesday is such a….”meh” kind of day.  It’s not the first day of the week (yuk).  It’s not the last day (yeah!) nor even the day BEFORE the last day (light at the end of the tunnel) and it’s fer sure not HAWWWMP Day!  It’s just…Tuesday.  Another day to slog thru to get to a day with a purpose! 🤷‍♀️

So…maybe this cheery card – brought to us by Sue Prather – that we created over the weekend at our retreat – will give you a little boost and something to be excited about! 🙂  This one uses the flyover Festive & Bright Bundle in the Jul – Dec 2021 Mini Catalog.  And some…FREE Designer Series Paper from the Sale-A-Bration catalog!  I LOVE FREE paper, don’t you??  Take a look-see at what we did with this Peaceful Prints DSP and the Festive & Bright Bundle.

Stampin’ Up! Heartfelt Wishes Hand-Penned Petals

Good morning, y’all – did you have a good Labor Day? I ended up getting a lot done – cleaned, sliced and froze a bunch of baby Portabella mushrooms (did you know you could do that!?), bagged and froze the shredded cheese, finished a card tutorial for SplitCoast Stampers, did a Zoom the Craftroom and made a card for today!  So….good day all the way around!

My card is a CAS creation (no – I am fine, thank you for asking!) that features the Heartfelt Wishes stamp set from the Jul – Dec 2021 Mini Catalog, a little foliage from Hand-Penned Petals (2021-2022 Annual Catalog) and…some FREE Beautifully Penned DSP (from the Aug – Sep Sale-a-Bration catalog!).  Take a look-see:
