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!

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!!
