Stampin’ Up! Classic Christmas Tree Angle Card

Good Monday morning, y’all!  Hope you had a great weekend!  Anyone get a look at the Geminids?  I would have – but…maybe y’all know how early I go to bed?  Also – COLD outside!  So…I watched for a while on a Live event on YouTube.

While typing this blog!  I call that multi-tasking!

My card today is a Christmas card.  Yes – I KNOW I’ve said I’m done with Christmas cards but…any day now I’ll truly be DONE with Christmas cards until 2021!  This one features the Tree Angle set (which is on sale for 20% off in the Year-End Clearance!) and the coordinating Stitched Triangles Dies.  I added some fun Christmas Classic 6″ x 6″ DSP – which, while not on sale, IS leaving us at the end of the Aug – Dec Catalog.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one was inspired by the sketch at the Inspired By challenge!

And some of the elements are from the Festive Friday challenge!

I started with a piece of Whisper White cardstock that I matted on Cherry Cobbler for the card front.

I cut two Sahara Sand pieces of the Classic Christmas 6″ x 6″ DSP using a Stitched Rectangle Die.  These are adhered to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I stamped the Tree Angle sentiment in Cherry Cobbler between the two die cut rectangles.

Using a couple three different sizes and shapes of dies in the Stitched Triangles Die set, I cut some fun designs from Classic Christmas 6″ x 6″ DSP in Cherry Cobbler and Shaded Spruce.

I adhered three of the trees above and below the sentiment with Liquid Glue – and popped the final two on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added Star Designer Elements – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped a second Tree Angle sentiment in Cherry Cobbler on a Whisper White panel.  In the corner, I stamped a Shaded Spruce tree – and added a Star Designer Element.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat and into my Sahara Sand card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got the Shaded Spruce tree on the front…

…and a little more Classic Christmas 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  The Tree Angle stamp set is a bit of a fly-over set, no doubt – but…it’s sweet in its simplicity!  And the fact that it has dies that match the images in the Stitched Triangles Dies.

And the Shaded Spruce, Cherry Cobbler, and Sahara Sand designs in the Classic Christmas 6″ x 6″ DSP are wonderful for the season – or even year-round!

I hope you like!

If you want to recreate this card – all the Stampin’ Up! products you need are listed down below along with the card cuts!

Stampin’ Up!’s Whisper White Paper Products Are Retiring Forever!

WHISPER WHITE 8-1/2" X 11" CARDSTOCK

In case you missed this in my blog post from earlier today, the Whisper White paper products are being discontinued and are only available while supplies last!

Stampin’ Up! does have a new Basic White that they’ll be offering as soon as their new supplier is able to get them the products. You can see more details about Basic White below!

Stampin’ Up! announced this information about Whisper White paper products:

Whisper White has been a Stampin’ Up! staple for so long. We love it and we know you love it, too. We are sad to announce that the supplier’s mill producing our Whisper White cardstock has permanently closed due to impacts from the COVID-19 pandemic. Unfortunately, we weren’t given much notice on this closure. This means that the technology unique to this particular supplier is now unavailable to us and we can no longer offer our Whisper White cardstock and related products, such as Whisper White Note Cards & Envelopes. Please note that this won’t affect any of our other cardstocks, this only affects Whisper White.

We know Whisper White has a huge fan base; we’re big fans, too! And we are crushed that it’s going away. Even though this decision was out of our hands, rest assured that we jumped right into action to find the best replacement paper possible. We have dedicated many hours to source and test alternative cardstock options from several suppliers to find the perfect fit that still maintains the Stampin’ Up! quality you know and trust. We are happy to share that we have found a winner for our new cardstock, Basic White!

The quality of our new Basic White was thoroughly tested by our quality assurance and product teams. It also tested very well with demonstrators and concept artists who gave it a huge thumbs up. We believe in the quality of the new Basic White cardstock and we know it will become your new crafting staple!

What does this mean for you?

With Whisper White going out of production, this means a number of Whisper White products will be affected. Below is a list of all products that will be replaced with our new Basic White cardstock. These items are now available while supplies last with an order limit of 2 per item per order.

  • Whisper White 12″ x 12″ (30.5 x 30.5 cm) Cardstock (124302) – SOLD OUT
  • Assorted Memories & More Cards & Envelopes (149710)
  • Whisper White Note Cards & Envelopes (131527) – SOLD OUT

  • Whisper White 8-1/2″ x 11″ Thick Cardstock (140272) – SOLD OUT
  • Whisper White Medium Envelopes (107301)

Stop by the online store to get the following Whisper White products that you love before they’re gone forever!

The Whsiper White 12″ x 12 Cardstock, Thick Whisper White card stock, Note Cards & Envelopes are already sold out!  So….better getcha some quick if you need it!

I’ve got an Online Host Club starting on 1 January (just in time for the new catalog and Sale-A-Bration!) and I’ve got openings.  Whoo-hoo!!!

What is an Online Host Club?  Glad you asked!An Online Host Club lets you get some of the benefits of being a host – without doing any of the WORK of being a host!  And – it helps you build your crafting tool chest a little at a time.  While earning FREE goodies!

A club consists of three folks doing two consecutive three-month terms.   Each person commits to buying $50 before shipping and tax each month.

Here’s how it shakes out…this is just an example!  As you can see, each member gets to host TWICE during the six months!!

At the end of the club, I let each member select a stamp set up to $25 that I send to them for free.

What are the other bennies of a Host Club?

  • At least a $150.00 Workshop order during EACH of your host months!
  • Which means you’ll have at least $15.00 of Stampin’ Rewards dollars to spend on the exclusive Host Stamp Sets, or any other current Stampin’ Up! product during your host months.  Stampin’ Rewards are Stampin’ Up!-speak for “free money”!
  • You’ll earn DOUBLE PEPPERMINTS on your Host Club Orders.  Each $50 order earns 4 reward points, a $75 order earns you 6 reward points, etc. You’ll earn at least 24 reward points during your membership, meaning you’ll automatically earn at least ONE $40 Peppermint rewards gift!  (Remember – when you gather up 16 Peppermints, you get to select a free reward gift valued up to $40!).  You can get more info about my Punkin’ Heads Customer Rewards Program right here.
  • During Sale-a-Bration – each of your host club orders will earn you AT LEAST one Level 1 ($50 level) Sale-A-Bration reward!
  • You’ll receive a FREE monthly tutorial with 4-5 projects and access to all previous tutorials for the duration of the club. Right now, there are over FIFTY tutorials available only to Online Host Club members.  That’s around TWO HUNDRED FIFTY not-seen-on-our-blogs projects for you to use as inspiration (and they ALL have all the card cuts and instructions!)
  • Access to my Weekly Zoom The Craftroom online Zoom Party – where you can come craft and chat with me and other customers! YEP – THIS IS NEW!!
  • FREE catalogs during your membership term
  • FREE shipping in your TWO Host Months
  • A FREE STAMP SET of your choice valued up to $25 at the end of each “term”, any current set (excluding host sets)!
  • At the end of the full 6 months, you’ll get first dibs at signing up for the next 6 month term!

When you join the club – you’ll commit to the full six months – in two consecutive three-month increments.   The launch of a new catalog and Sale-A-Bration is ALWAYS a great time to join a club!

Don’t delay – there are limited spaces available!

If you want to join us or if you have ANY questions about how it would work…please drop me a note at stamps-n-lingers@comcast.net!

Finn Fan Fix 

Finn has been vindicated.

All those pictures in which he appears to be begging his dad for food.

Well – it’s not his fault!

Even Katy has the Dad’s number.

I’m pretty sure Wayne eats no meals without “assistance”! 😉

Finn – and Katy.  Common denominator?

Wayne.

Just sayin’.

And – it works…

…so….it’s unlikely to change any time soon!

Stampin’ Up! Touch of Ink Heal Your Heart Sneak Peek Sympathy Card with Video Tutorial

Good morning and happy Friday!  Another busy week has flown by – I DID finally start baking – yeah me! – so…SOME gifts will go out soon.  I fear I’m going to have to GO TO A STORE – cuz….boy have I messed up the whole buy online thing!  I’m still waiting for an order to arrive that was slated to come last Monday, so….  🙄

If you were able to join me yesterday for my YouTube live, I appreciate you spending some time with me – if not, but you’d like to see the replay, here ’tis!  🙂

There seems to be a spike in the need for sympathy cards right now, so…that’s what I did with this one.  I started with a sentiment from the Peaceful Moments stamp set (from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog) and brought in some new goodies.  The Heal Your Heart and A Touch of Ink stamp sets – available on 5 Jan 2021! Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from the Freshly Made Sketches challenge this week.

And – I played along with the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.

I started with a piece of the Hydrangea Hill DSP – the striped Highland Heather design – and stamped all over it with the flower image in the A Touch of Ink stamp set. I stamped the flowers in stamped-off-once Highland Heather to get a more subtle tone-on-tone look.

Then I matted the panel on Seaside Spray for the card front.

I cut another piece of the Hydrangea Hill DSP and a piece of Whisper White to 2″ x 4 3/8″.  I punched the tops of both strips with the Delightful Tag Topper Punch – and rounded the bottom corners with the corner-rounder on the Detailed Trio Punch.

I created the “mat” look by cutting the Whisper White tag in half length-wise and then adhering each side to the back of the DSP strip with Liquid Glue – leaving a little white border.

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

I trimmed a Square Vellum Doily down a bit with my Paper Snips and adhered it to the tag with Liquid Glue.

On a piece of Whisper White, I stamped the sentiment from Peaceful Moments in Gorgeous Grape ink and cut it out with a Tasteful Labels die.  Then I adhered it to the tag with Liquid Glue.

On another piece of Whisper White, I stamped the hummingbird outline from A Touch of Ink in Seaside Spray ink.  To color him, I inked the fill stamp in Seaside Spray – stamped it off once on scrap paper – and stamped it over the image.  Then I fussy cut the little bird.

I used Stampin’ Dimensionals and Liquid Glue to adhere him – then I brushed him all over with my Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush.

I tied a bow with some new Gorgeous Grape 3/8″ Sheer Ribbon (available 5 Jan 21) and added it at the top of the tag with a Glue Dot.

A Seaside Spray pearl from the new Pastel Pearls (coming on 5 Jan 2021) on the sentiment tag finished off the card front.

On the inside, I stamped a sentiment – one of my favorites! – from the Heal Your Heart set in Gorgeous Grape on a Whisper White panel.  Over that, in stamped-off-TWICE Highland Heather – I stamped the A Touch of Ink flower that I’d used on the front of the card.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Seaside Spray mat and into my Gorgeous Grape card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got the A Touch of Ink flower on the front in full strength Highland Heather ink….

…and more of the Hydrangea Hill DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Love that both the A Touch of Ink AND Heal Your Heart stamp sets will be available for FREE in the 2021 Sale-A-Bration Flyer!  They’re both wonderful!

And the Hydrangea Hill DSP is just….stunning!

I hope you like.  And have got ALL these new goodies on your gotta-have-it list for 5 Jan!!

WHISPER WHITE CARDSTOCK IS RETIRING!

SHIMMERY WHITE 8-1/2" X 11" CARDSTOCK

Stampin’ Up! posted this update late in the day on Thursday.

Our new Basic White products will become available to purchase as soon as we have them in stock. This means that some Whisper White and Basic White products may be available at the same time. Additionally, due to the nature of sourcing, some Basic White products may not be available before the Whisper White products sell out. Please know that we are working on getting these products available to you as fast as possible.

We also have a video message addressing some potential concerns that you may have. This video goes over a comparison of Whisper White to Basic White so you will know what to expect with this change. You can watch the video here.

It’s always hard to say goodbye, but we are excited about the new Basic White product line and we encourage you to try it out! We are confident that you’ll love it just as much as we do.

Finn Fan Fix 

So – the other day, I pulled some homemade Sourdough Pancakes out of the freezer and re-heated them in the toaster oven for Wayne.  I made about one-too-many but I figured if he didn’t finish them – I could have a bite or two of pancake.  With a little warm real maple syrup.

Seemed like a fine plan.

He sat down to eat and I worked on my morning blog posting routine.

Soon, as expected, he started to say he had too much food.

I musta been a little slow on the uptake – cuz before I could say….”I’ll eat them”…..

🙁

Took about 30 seconds.

Gone.

Homemade.  Sourdough.  Pancake.

WITH WARM MAPLE SYRUP.

Just…gone.

Stampin’ Up! Dove of Hope 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 sketch challenge today 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!

I wanted to play one last time with a couple of goodies that are leaving us on 4 Jan – the Plaid Tidings 6″ x 6″ DSP and the Dove of Hope stamp set with its pretty Detailed Dove Dies.  I also pulled out Gathered Leaves which….yes.  THIS one hurts me.  I love this set and will miss it terribly!  On a brighter note, though…a few of these are on sale in the Year-End Clearance!!  Be sure to check it out!  Now – take a look-see at how they all came together!

And – here’s our layout for this week.

And I pulled my color palette from the Sunday Stamps challenge.

I started with a piece of the Plaid Tidings 6″ x 6″ DSP that I matted on Cherry Cobbler for the card front.

Then I cut a piece of Cherry Cobbler using a Stitched Rectangle Die – embossed it in one of the Wrapped In Texture Embossing Folders – and adhered it at a jaunty angle with Liquid Glue.

I used the same size Stitched Rectangle Die to cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock.  I stamped the sentiment from Dove of Hope in Early Espresso in the corner (making sure it would be straight when it was on the card).

I stamped the branch image from Dove of Hope in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, colored it with my Dark Shaded Spruce and Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends and adhered the panel to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I used the Beautiful Boughs die set to cut two small boughs from Shaded Spruce cardstock and one medium bough from Pear Pizzaz.

I also cut two bronze Brushed Metallic cardstock leaves using the Gathered Leaves dies.

Have I mentioned these dies are leaving us forever soon? 😢😢😢

And – finally – I cut a Cherry Cobbler berry die from the Poinsettia Dies.

On a piece of Whisper White, I stamped two of the Dove of Hope images in Tuxedo Black and cut them with their dies in the Detailed Dove die set.

I made the collage by first adhering the pine boughs and metallic leaves with Liquid Glue.  With a Glue Dot, I added a figure-8 bow made from a couple loops of Linen Thread.  I also used a Glue Dot to adhere a Gold Hoop Embellishment.  Finally – I added the Cherry Cobbler berry die.

Then I popped the large Dove of Hope over the top with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I colored the sprig on the second dove with my Shaded Spruce and Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends and popped it onto the card front in the top corner.

Finally, I added a few Cherry Cobbler Holiday Rhinestones and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped a second Dove of Hope sentiment in Early Espresso on a Whisper White panel.  In the corner I added the bough and dove – coloring them the same as I’d done on the front.  Then I added another Cherry Cobbler Holiday Rhinestone.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat and into my Early Espresso card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got the bough and dove on the front…

…and more Plaid Tidings 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  The Dove of Hope stamp set and matching Detailed Dove Dies are gorgeous and really wonderful for Christmas!  And – after 4 Jan – you won’t be able to get them!  Nor will you be able to get any of the wunnermus Plaid Tidings 6″ x 6″ DSP.  And – maybe I mentioned that Gathered Leaves is ALSO leaving??  Did I mention that….it’s on SALE right now for just $13!?!?  Yeah – that’s 50% off!  Get it!

GATHERED LEAVES DIES

I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Handsomely Suited Sneak Peek for the Around the World Blog Hop

Happy Happy Hawwmp Day!!  And welcome to another edition of the Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop.   I hope you’ll sit down and spend a little time with us – regardless of where YOU are in the world! 🙂  I know you’re going to see some awesome projects!

Like most hops, we have a theme each month – and this month’s is “Something New – Something Old”!  That’s pretty easy right now – especially with the Pre-Order/Sneak Peek we demonstrators got from the new Jan – June 2021 Mini Catalog and 2021 Sale-A-Bration Brochure!! 🙂

So….I pulled out the fun Handsomely Suited bundle – with Suit & Ties Dies– and the masculine-themed Well Suited DSP.  Take a look-see!

The layout for this one is loosely inspired by this week’s CAS(E)This Sketch challenge.

And the colors are a nod to the Cupcake Inspiration challenge.

So…being that this was my first go with the Suit & Tie Dies, I used the samples in the Mini Catalog to help me design my bespoke suit!

I first cut a piece of the Well Suited DSP in a quiet Basic Gray pinstrip to the size of my card front (3 3/4″ x 5″).  Then, using the “V” die in Suite & Ties – I cut out the front of the suit.

I adhered the “suit” to a piece of Whisper White cardstock – making sure to NOT use any Liquid Glue around the bottom of the “V”.  Then I adhered the whole thing to a Night of Navy and a Pacific Point mat.

I stamped a tie image in Night of Navy on Pacific Point and cut it with the die in the Suite & Tie set.

And – I cut a “shirt collar” in Whisper White.

I slid the end of the tie into the bottom of the “V” behind the DSP and adhered it to the piece of Whisper White.  Then I used Liquid Glue to adhere the collar on – making sure the top of the tie was tucked in.

I used the Suit-collar die and cut another piece of the Basic Gray pinstripe Well Suited DSP and popped that in place with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I decided a button was in order, so I cut one from Night of Navy with the die in the set and adhered it with Liquid Glue.

I stamped the Handsomely Suited sentiment in Night of Navy on a piece of Whisper White and punched it with the Tailored Tag Punch.

Sorry.  Had to do it!

I added some “faux stitches” with my Pacific Point Stampin’ Write Marker.

I used the little “pocket” die in the Suit & Tie Dies to cut two flowery pockets, which I adhered – pointy ends up – to the back of the Tailored Tag sentiment.  Then I popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Tip:  as I look at the picture above – I can just see the Dimensional under the suit collar.  When you make this card – use Black Stampin’ Dimensionals! 😉

I added a few Misty Moonlight 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dots – one to the sentiment and one to the tie (like a tie tack) and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a second sentiment from Handsomely Suited in Night of Navy ink to a Whisper White panel.  Then I stamped a line of ties across the bottom – alternating between Night of Navy and Pacific Point.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to Night of Navy and Pacific Point mats and into my Basic Gray card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more of the ties across the front…

…and a little of the flowery Well Suited DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This is a really cool stamp set and dies, y’all!  Perfect for manly birthday or Father’s Day cards!  The Handsomely Suited stamp set – with the bundled Suit & Tie Dies lets you really get creative with your “clothing”!

I’ve even heard tell that you can make a lab coat!  I think my vet men and women NEED that, don’t you?!?

I love love love the papers in the Well Suited DSP!  The colors are great – and the designs are perfectly suited (sorry.  not sorry) for the tie dies in the bundle!

Right?!?  I hope you like – and are making a list!!

If you want to recreate this card – all the Stampin’ Up! products you need are listed down below along with the card cuts!

Now that you’ve seen my card, take a minute to hop thru all our projects today.  As I said earlier – we’ve got folks from across the globe…

Stampin’ Up! Friends Are Like Seashells Sneak Peek for the Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

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

I decided to…make a birthday card!  And I decided to use a brand new stamp bundle – so new, in fact, that…unless you’re a SU Demonstrator…you’re going to have to wait to get it until the Jan – Jun 2021 Mini Catalog goes live on 5 Jan 21!  I picked the gorgeous – stupendous! – Sand & Sea Suite.  The anchor is the Friends Are Like Seashells Bundle and the Sand & Sea DSP.  There’s also gorgeous Pearlescent Specialty Paper and Opal Rounds embellishments and….the amazeballs Seashells 3D Embossing Folder!  Take a look-see:

The layout is from this week’s Fab Friday sketch challenge.

I started with a gorgeous piece of Sand & Sea DSP that I matted on Blushing Bride cardstock for the card front.

Next – I took a piece of new Pearlescent Specialty Paper and the big, wait-until-you-see-what-this-can-do die from the Seaside Seashells Dies set and cut out the wunnermus seashells “scene”.

Using the stamps in the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set, I stamped the die cut to add the images.  I used Sahara Sand for the large and small cone shells, Seaside Spray for the two clam shells and Blushing Bride for the largest shell-whose-name-I-don’t-know! 😉  I used my Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blends Combo to color all the grasses.

And then…the magic happened! 😉

I placed the colored die cut inside the Seashells 3D Embossing Folder – it fits PERFECTLY into the image in the folder…

…and ran it thru my Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine.  It.  Works.  Like.  A.  Charm!! 🙂

Can you see all that beautiful embossed detail?  If not – you’ll have to take my word for it for now! 😉

Using Stampin’ Dimensionals, I popped the die cut onto my card front.

I used a Stitched Shapes square die to cut a piece of Vellum cardstock and one of the circle Stitched Shapes dies to cut the center out.  Then I used some Glue Dots – at the bottom of the square – to adhere the square to the card front.

I cut two lengths of new Blushing Bride 3/8″ Metallic Ribbon and adhered them in a bit of an “x” with more Glue Dots.

On a strip of the Pearlescent Specialty Paper, I stamped the Friends Are Like Seashells sentiment in Blushing Bride.  Tip: ink stays wet longer on this Pearlescent paper – so….use your Heat Tool or go get a snack while it gets good and dry!  When it was dry, I snipped some banner ends and then popped it on with Dimensionals.

I popped some of those pretty new Opal Rounds onto the card front and the Vellum (cleverly hiding a few extra Glue Dots!!) and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped a second sentiment from Friends Are Like Seashells in Blushing Bride on a Very Vanilla panel.  Over it, in stamped-off-once Sahara Sand, I added a sand dollar from the set.  Around that, I added “bubbles” in stamped-off-once Seaside Spray.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Blushing Bride mat and into my Sahara Sand card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got a full-strength Sahara Sand sand dollar on the front.  I made a sticky note mask for it and then stamped the clam shells in Seaside Spray.  I pulled up the mask and added more bubbles…

…and added more of the Sand & Sea DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Wow.  Just…wow!  Y’all – this Sand & Sea Suite is seriously beautiful!  From the DSP with the same name…

To the Friends Are Like Seashells Bundle – with that big die that FITS IN THE SEASHELLS 3D EMBOSSING FOLDER!!  Yes – I DID mean to yell – it’s that BIG!!

I hope you like – and are frantically searching for your wish list!! 😉

Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Painted Poppies Gate Fold Card with Video Tutorial!

Happy Friday!!  Hope you’ve had a good week – and are looking forward to the weekend! Which I hope will be different in SOME way from the week!  Oh – hey!  You could spend part of your day tomorrow with us on our Ornate Garden FB Live Event!  Check below for the deets and a link to join the event page!!  It’ll be fun – I promise!

If you were able to join me for my YouTube video – I appreciate you spending some of your day with me!  If not, but you’d like to see the replay…here ’tis!

I used the wunnermus goodies from the Peaceful Poppies Suite – the DSP and both the Peaceful Moments bundle (the Poppy Moments Dies are BACK!!) and the Painted Poppies stamp set to make this fun Gate-Fold Card.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from the CAS Colours & Sketches sketch challenge.

And the pretty color palette is from the Inspire. Create. Challenge.

And it works great with the Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge,too!  Right down the left column!

The gate fold is really easy.  I started with a 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ piece of Pool Party and – along the long edge – used my Simply Scored board to score at 2 1/4″ and again at 6 1/2″.

I matted two pieces of Peaceful Poppies DSP on Blackberry Bliss card stock and adhered them to the two gates with Liquid Glue.

I wrapped a 1″ x 12″ strip of the Peaceful Poppies DSP around the card, securing it in the middle with Liquid Glue – not TOO snugly, okay?

The Peaceful Moments sentiment is stamped in Poppy Parade on an angled Whisper White rectangle from the Stitched So Sweetly die set.  Then I adhered it to the belly band with Liquid Glue.

I cut two solid flowers from a piece of Poppy Parade paper in the Peaceful Poppies DSP.  Using the splotches image in the Painted Poppies set, I added Poppy Parade texture (aka splotches!) to each flower.  Then I adhered a detailed flower die cut in Basic Black to each one (only using Liquid Glue in the middle of the detailed die cuts – letting the edges remain loose).


I cut a few flower centers from Black Foil and adhered them with Liquid Glue.

With the leaf die in the Poppy Moments, I cut three Old Olive leaves.  With the berries die in Frosted Bouquet, I cut three Blackberry Bliss berries.  These are adhered to the sentiment panel with Liquid Glue.

I lightly curled the edges of the larger flower and used Liquid Glue in the middle to adhere it over the leaves.  Then I tucked the smaller flower up under the edge, adhering it with Liquid Glue.  And that was it for the card front and belly band!

On the inside, I stamped a second sentiment from Peaceful Moments in Poppy Parade on a Whisper White panel. In the corner, I added the smaller flower image from Painted Poppies in Tuxedo Black, then stamped the large fill image in stamped-off-once Poppy Parade.  I added a few Poppy Parade splotches for some texture.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Blackberry Bliss mat and into the card base and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another Painted Poppies flower on the front…

…and a little more Peaceful Poppies DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!!  This Peaceful Moments stamp set is so wonderful – and I am really glad that the bundled Poppy Moments Dies are back in stock and available to you!  Paired with the Painted Poppies images and gorgeous Peaceful Poppies DSP – it’s just a WOW combination!

I hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix


Sometimes there’s doubt about the parentage of animals.

Do they look and act more like their mother?  Or their father?

Well – with Finn, there is little doubt.

He is EXACTLY like his father.

No – not THAT father (although…yea.  They’re pretty similar!!)

The OTHER one.

I am frequently complaining to Wayne that he can – with no aid from tools of any sort – not a compass, nor a laser tape measure, nay – not even survey equipment – park a vehicle (or 3) right. Smack. In the middle of any road – anywhere.

And his son (my sweet Finn-y) – apparently inherited the trait.

Case in point.

 

He’s got the entire kitchen floor.  Or – gosh – the entire HOUSE!

But no.

With the precision of a NASA engineer…with his trusty slide rule…he places himself in the “aisle”.

Right. Smack. Dead. Center.

So I get to step over him – or go around the island (the looooong way!)

As his father looks on proudly!

That’s-ma BOY!!
