Stampin’ Up! Ginkgo Branch Sympathy Card

Good morning, y’all!  Hope you’re having a great week wherever you are!

An old family friend recently passed away and I needed a sympathy card, so…I pulled on my thinking cap and spent some time perusing my shelves for the perfect tool.  (My Zoom the Craftroom ladies had to spend a little time staring at my back! 🤷‍♀️ )  I settled on the sweet Ginkgo Branch stamp set and just used it with a little sponging to make a clean, simple and elegant card for a somber need.  Take a look-see:

Stampin Up! Scenic Garden Happy Labels Thank You Card

Good morning and welcome back to the work week!  Have you got something fun planned for the week or is it all work all the time?  After last week’s 4-day week, that extra day seems…like a bummer!

My card today is a super easy one to make – and it showcases the Scenic Garden Host-Exclusive stamp set from the Jan – Feb 2023 Sale-a-Bration catalog!  I’ll let you know at the end how you can get it for yourself for FREE!  Scenic Garden is an image-only stamp set – so you’ll likely want a sentiment with it. I used the new Happy Labels stamp set and its bundled Happy Labels Punch!  The whole thing was anchored by a pretty piece of Regency Park 6″ x 6″ DSP.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Beautifully Happy Country Floral Birthday for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good morning, y’all!  It’s Thursday – which means it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop.  We’ve got a great sketch challenge to work with and I’m excited to see what everyone brings to the table – I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop today!

The sketch we worked with this week has one of my favorite elements – angled front panels!  I pulled out my Country Floral Lane DSP and Cane Weave 3D Embossing Folder for my panels – and then added a big floral from the Beautifully Happy stamp set.  Take a look-see:

Good morning, y’all!  Hope your week has started out well.  I don’t know about you, but…Tuesdays that are Mondays always keep me confused all thru the rest of the week.  I barely know if it’s Christmas or…well…TUESDAY!

I hope it is NOT Christmas.  Just sayin! 😉

My card today would be perfect for the NEXT upcoming holiday – Valentine’s Day!  It gets its color palette from some Country Floral Lane and Country Gingham DSPs and features the so-cute Love Cats stamp set!  Oh.  And it’s super easy!  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Decorative Borders Something Fancy for the Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Good morning, y’all – welcome to another edition of the Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team blog hop!  Each month we make projects centered around a theme – and this month our theme 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!

We’ve got a gorgeous image-only stamp set called the Decorative Borders set.  Just a photopolymer set – no dies, no punch – that stamps lovely floral border and corner images.  I very simply paired it with a sentiment from the Something Fancy Set, embossed it all with the Pretty Flowers Embossing Folder and called it a day!  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Sentimental Regency Park Sneak Peek Thank You Card

Happy Happy Hawwmp Day, y’all! Hope your week is going well!  I’m enjoying getting to the end of the baking – actually gave a small plate of cookies and fudge to the UPS driver this morning!  He brought some things for Wayne – and for my craft room!  Pictures will come soon! 🙂  I DID realize today that I’ve run out of eggs.  Which is…hard to fathom!  I guess that’s what happens if – every time you look at eggs at the store you say to yourself – oh no, I’ve got 18 in the outside fridge.  And then you just keep on baking!  😳😳😳  So – a trip to the store is imminent!!

But – before I do that – let’s talk card!  It’s another sneak peek from the Jan – Apr 2023 Mini Catalog – this one features the new Sentimental Park bundle and pretty Regency Park 6″ x 6′ DSP.  And – a new embossing folder (I LOVE embossing folders!) – called the Cane 3D Embossing Folder.  Take a look-see:
