Stampin’ Up! Peace to You Clean and Simple Christmas Card

Good morning and Happy Happy HAWWWWMP Day.  Or – is it actually Hawwwmp Day if Monday was a holiday?

I dunno.  Happy Wednesday either way!

Two Admin-y things before we get going!  First – today’s the last day to take advantage of the first September Weekly Deals.  Brushed Brass Butterflies and Rustic Metallic Adhesive-backed Dots.  Among other goodies.  Just sayin’!

And second – today is the START of the availability of a super cool new Kit – called the Christmas Gifting Kit.  With this one great kit you’ll be able to make 9 gift tags AND 9 Gift Card Holders!  It’s time to be thinking along those lines and…this is a great start!  Get the deets down below!

Okay.  Here we go!  So – I saw one of the most gorgeous cards the other day – my friend Brian King posted it and…I had to CASE it.

I.  Had.  To.

So – I did!  Like him, I used the Peace to You stamp set – although I selected the other big and gorgeous image in the set.  And I used my fave Orchid Oasis instead of Starry Sky.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Trimming the Tree Peace & Joy Christmas Card

Good morning and happy Labor Day!  I hope you are NOT laboring today and instead are getting ready for a backyard BBQ or some such to celebrate the last holiday of the summer!

My card today celebrates Christmas.  Cuz…it’s September.  So…why not?!  Never too early is my motto.  And Walmart’s.  And Costco’s…. LOL!

I used the Trimming the Tree stamp set – from the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog – with the new (and limited availability!) Tree Trimmings dies – which are part of the Perfect Partners promotion taking place all month!  I used a little Lights Aglow DSP, too!  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Full of Love & Inspired Thoughts CAS Sympathy Card

Happy Happy Hawwmmp Day  It’s the LAST day of August (sheesh – can you even believe it?!) AND the LAST day of Sale-A-Bration!  Yikes!  So there’s still time to get those free goodies that you haven’t gotten yet – all while taking advantage of Double Peppermints!

My card today is a challenge.  A personal one.  While some folks are put off and intimidated by layers and fussy cutting and bows and bling…I am intimidated by….the single layer card.

Yes.  It’s true.  A single layer sparks fear in my heart.  So I decided to – sort of! – confront that head on.  I pulled out the Full of Love and Inspired Thoughts stamp sets and simply…stamped.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Country Cottage Wreaths CAS Thank You Card

Good morning and welcome back to the work week.  And – the FIRST DAY of AUGUST!  What in the world?!?  How is it possible that the year is going so fast?  AND Sale-A-Bration?  Yep – we’re already half-way thru!  Yikes!

I saw a cool sketch at the Freshly Made Sketches challenge and my brain informed me that the right way to go was with the Cottage Wreaths bundle.  So…I did!  Take a look-see:

Stampin' Up! Country Cottage Wreaths CAS Thank You Card

And here’s the Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

And I used the color palette from the Color Throwdown challenge this week.

I started by embossing a Crumb Cake panel in the Timber 3D Embossing Folder and then I adhered it to the front of my Crumb Cake card base with Liquid Glue.

I cut three Very Vanilla squares using the next-to-largest Stylish Shapes die.

Stampin' Up! Country Cottage Wreaths CAS Thank You Card

On a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock, I stamped the wreath from the Cottage Wreaths set three times in Balmy Blue.  I stamped each wreath with the twig image in Crumb Cake – and cut them all out with the coordinating die in the Country Wreaths die set.

I adhered the three die cut wreaths to the three Very Vanilla squares with Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Country Cottage Wreaths CAS Thank You Card

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the top and bottom wreaths to the card front.

I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop the middle wreath on.

I used the little leaves dies – there are four of them! – in Country Wreaths to cut out four Balmy Blue leaves and then adhered them to the bottom corner of the middle wreath with Liquid Glue.

I tied a simple bow with two lengths of Very Vanilla Baker’s Twine and adhered it with a Glue Dot.

On a piece of Very Vanilla, I stamped the Cottage Wreaths sentiment in Balmy Blue and cut it out with the smallest little banner die from Stylish Shapes.

Stampin' Up! Country Cottage Wreaths CAS Thank You Card

I used double-stacked Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the sentiment over the bow, added a few Very Vanilla dots from the Classic Matte Dots pack – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped the Cottage Wreaths wreath in stamped-off-once Balmy Blue in the middle of a Very Vanilla panel.  I stamped the sentiment in the center in full-strength Balmy Blue – and added another Very Vanilla Classic Matte Dot.

Stampin' Up! Country Cottage Wreaths CAS Thank You Card

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Balmy Blue mat and into the Crumb Cake card base and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got the wreath – and a sentiment! – in Balmy Blue on the front…

Stampin' Up! Country Cottage Wreaths CAS Thank You Card

…and I used the little leaves stamp from Cottage Wreaths to stamp all over the envelope flap in Balmy Blue!

Et Voila!  I love the Cottage Wreath Bundle – the stamped images are gorgeous and the coordinating Country Wreaths dies make it so easy to cut them out – as well as other foliage for your projects!  And – what do you think of it in soft blues and creams!?  I sort of love it!

Finn Fan Fix 

We’re now officially Ooni Pizza Oven Snobs!

Oh my goodness, y’all!  We really liked our pizzas BEFORE – in the oven in the kitchen.

They took forever, though – even at 500F!

But NOW?!?  WOW!  This Ooni Karu is….AMAZEBALLS!

The men put it together yesterday morning…

Then we did the 30 min seasoning at full temp!

I put dough on in the morning and…we fired it up for dinner!

Pizza #1 – Ready to launch!

It was so cool to watch!  I even took a video – and yes, I sound like a goofus.  But….

And the results?!?

Perfection!  Crisp on the outside, soft on the inside.  Perfect!

They were SOOO much better than the ones from the oven – I didn’t think it would be THAT much different but…it sure is!

Only one problem that I could see.

I wanted to eat ALL of BOTH pizzas.

I didn’t.

But – I WANTED to for sure!!
