Stampin’ Up! Pampered Pets in Grace’s Garden

Well.  Here we are. Friday!  And – for some of you – today’s a holiday!  Cuz tomorrow we celebrate the birth of our nation!  I hope everyone has some plans – we’re going to TRY to go to our friend’s on Sunday for some social-distanced socializing!  Fingers crossed we get our taxes done by Sunday so we can make that happen!  I feel the need for a hamburger on the grill with friends!  And deviled eggs!  Yum!  And I’ve been collecting some dessert recipes that I’m itching to make when I have more-than-one-mouth to feed!

Speaking of taxes (look back a few sentences – I DID mention taxes!) – I am SO sorry that I wasn’t able to get together with y’all yesterday!  But – the COVID-push-back is almost over and…yep.  The taxman cometh!  So…gots to do what we gots to do!

My friend Jan – also one of the newest members of my Critters-N-Creatin’ Krew team! – came over on Wednesday and we made the card that I was going to make for you yesterday.  In fact, she was going to come over and sit in!  Maybe next week!

The card is a pet-sympathy card – using the Grace’s Garden stamp set and coordinating Garden Gateway Dies, plus the Pampered Pets bundle and a perfect sentiment from Peaceful Moments.  Take a look-see:

This was really a collaboration – we both had some ideas about what the card should look like – and I think we made our vision happen!

We started with a piece of Crumb Cake that we stamped with the Peaceful Moments sentiment in Tuxedo Black.  Then we embossed it in the Brick 3D Embssing Folder and matted it on Basic Black for the card front.

Then…we started stamping and die-cutting and coloring flowers!  Yes – it’s a LOT quicker to create a gorgeous cottage garden with paper and ink than actually planting flowers!!  🙂

We stamped all the Grace’s Garden images in Tuxedo Black and cut them out with their matching dies in the Garden Gateway Die set.  We also cut the wunnermus gate itself from Whisper White!

I set Jan to dimensionalizing the back of the archway – cutting Mini Dimensionals in half to fit.  We colored the flowers with Stampin’ Blends and Stampin’ Write Markers in Highland Heather, Granny Apple Green, Daffodil Delight and Rococo Rose.

Then?  We built the garden!  We added flowers with Liquid Glue and Dimensionals.  We got almost everything laid on and then…I looked at her and said…do you think it maybe needs…a bow?!? 😉

She said – I WAS JUST THINKING THAT!

And that was the day that Jan was introduced to the transformative effect of….the double-loop Linen Thread bow! 😉

We adhered it with a Glue Dot – then popped on the last couple of flowers with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  A single Rhinestone Basic Jewel finished off the card front.

On the inside, we masked off part of the sentiment in Pampered Pets and stamped just “Always in Your Heart” in Tuxedo Black on a Whisper White panel.  Then – work with me here – we cut the fuzzy dog from Vellum, using the die in the Pets Die set.  See?  He’s there but NOT there but always in their hearts. 🙂

We adhered him with a single Glue Dot – then we popped a heart over the Glue Dot.  I cut the heart with the Dog Punch Punch and Jan colored it with the Light Balmy Blue Stampin’ Blend (her friend had a shaggy boy dog) and then we swiped Clear Wink of Stella over that.

I used Stampin’ Seal to adhere the panel to a Basic Black mat and into my Crumb Cake card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

The Whisper White Medium Envelope got the Grace’s Garden flowers on the front…

…and also on the envelope flap!

Et Voila!  This card – made as a pet sympathy card – could easily be a not-pet sympathy card, right?  Grace’s Garden and the matching Garden Gateway Dies, gives a quaint, cottage-y feel to any card.

And is perfect with the sentiment from Peaceful Moments.

If you stopped there…you’d have a very nice sympathy card for anyone.  Add in the Pampered Pets bundle and…boom.  Pet sympathy card!!

I hope you like!

Tax day.

No – not Tax Day – like…not due today.

Nope – yesterday was tax preparation day for us.

Quite possibly my least favorite day of the year.  Well – least favorite week.  It takes us a minute….

Serious – I’d rather go to the dentist.  At least they give me the “good stuff”! 😉

Katy helped.

Finn helped.

It’s possible – maybe – that their definition of “help” is different than mine… 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Prized Peony Bouquet Thank You with a Video Tutorial!

Good morning and Happy Friday! 🙂  Hope you’ve got a fun weekend planned!

I’m hoping to have some friends come this afternoon to do a little card making.  We’ll wear our masks and stay as socially distanced as possible. But – she’s retiring from the airline soon and is thinking maybe card-ing would be fun now that she’ll have some time.  And – she’s intrigued (rightly enough!) by the current joining special.  She likes the sound of “FREE” as much as the next person – and a bundle of free?  Yes, please! 🙂

Now – one of the awesomer new bundles in the catalog and…one she – or you! – could pick for free – is the Prized Peony Bundle.  The Prized Peony stamp set is gorgeous, for sure.  But – the real prize (see what I did there?) is the bundled Peony Dies.  Which lets you cut out all the gorgeous flower images in the stamp set AND lets you build stunning 3D peonies. Like I created today.  Take a look-see:

So – if you were able to join me yesterday for my YouTube live, I appreciate you spending some time with me – and you got to see exactly how to build these peonies.  If not – take a gander at it here on YouTube.  Moving pictures are worth a gazillion words! 😉

The layout for this one was loosely inspired by this week’s challenge over at Tuesday Morning Sketches.

I started with a piece of In Good Taste DSP wood-grain paper that I matted on Just Jade for the card front using new Stampin’ Seal.

I created some leaves using the dies in the Peony Dies – each leaf uses two different dies.  I created them from Just Jade 2020-2022 In Color 6″ x 6″ DSP and from Mint Macaron card stock.  The larger solid leaves in Mint Macaron, I embossed in the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder.

Then I adhered the leaf parts together with Liquid Glue.

I cut three flowers – they each take 4 parts….

One I cut from Whisper White card stock, one from Mango Melody Brights 6″ x 6″ DSP and one from So Saffron Subtles 6″ x 6″ DSP.  Using an almost-dry Sponge Dauber, I lightly brushed the edges of all the flower pieces.

I ran the four Whisper White petals thru the cutting and embossing machine in the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder.

Then I used my Bone Folder to curl all the petals into a most-realistic looking shape. 😉

Finally – I assembled all the flowers.  Just remember – the smallest petal into the next largest into the next largest and finally into the biggest petal.  Align the “notch” at the bottom and adhere with Liquid Glue.

Confused?  Truly – it’s easy.  Watch the video and I’ll prove it to you! 🙂

I stamped the Prized Peony sentiment in Early Espresso on a piece of Whisper White, then used the smallest rectangle die cut in the Stitched So Sweetly die set to cut the sentiment.  That die is the right width – but is too short.  So…I made the cut longer by running thru the machine twice.  Check the video – this part starts at about 34:45 into the video.  LOTS easier to show than to write! 🙂

I laid out my collage and took a picture – first of the whole thing and then with the top flower off…

Then I started adhering all the pieces and parts with Liquid Glue and Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I used a couple of Glue Dots to adhere a Linen Thread “Figure 8” before adding the final Mango Melody flower.

A few of the new Elegant Faceted Gems – the pink ones – finished off the card front!

On the inside, I inked the Peony image (the middle sized one) from Prized Peony in Magenta Madness.  Then I stamped it off twice before stamping a Whisper White panel.  I repeated that three more times.  Then I colored them with my Light So Saffron and Light Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends.  I also added a second sentiment in Early Espresso.

I used Stampin’ Seal to adhere the panel to a Just Jade mat and into my Early Espresso card base, added the card front with Liquid Glue – and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another Prized Peony on the front…

…and more of the In Good Taste DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila – does this Peony Die set not make the more stunningly gorgeous flowers??  I can’t believe how real you can make them look – just by stacking four die cuts together!  And the beautiful images and sentiments in the bundled Prized Peony round this out to be the perfect bundle!

I hope you like – and have this one coming soon!  Or…that it’s on the short list for your free pick when you join my team! 😉

Yesterday, Wayne got back from being in NC for a few days working on our rental property.

Which meant it was – finally!! – time to turn these…

…into this…

No – NOT the yellow squash – it’s destined for different things!

Served up with some corn bread?  Oh yes – that’s some good eating!

Well – the Finn-meister was NOT convinced that what I was working on was VEGETABLES!!!

“I LOVE beans, Mom. ESPECIALLY French Algarve beans that I grew myself!”

He doesn’t.  I promise.

Now – the ham in the beans??  Likely a far different story! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Prized Peony for the Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop

Happy Happy Hawwmp Day!!  And welcome to another edition of the Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop.  All our blogs go live at the exact same time – regardless of where in the WORLD the hopper is located!   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!

This month’s focus is on the new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog!  Favorite things – inspiration – whatever makes us get all warm and fuzzy when we think about it.  I am ALWAYS drawn to the flowers.  Stampin’ Up! does flowers real good – and this catalog is no exception!  One of my favorites is…the stunning Peony Garden Suite!!  I used the Prized Peony bundle and a little bit of Peony Garden DSP.  Plus…the returning Woven Heirlooms stamp set.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one comes from the current Mojo Monday challenge!

I started with a piece of Gray Granite card stock and embossed it in the new Dainty Diamonds 3D Embossing Folder.  Then I cut it down to size and adhered it to the front of my Gray Granite card base with Liquid Glue.

I used one of the white/Gray Granite designs in the Peony Garden DSP and colored it with my Light Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blend and my Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Combo pack.  Then I matted it on Petal Pink and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

The cross-panel is another, Petal Pink-matted piece of the Peony Garden DSP, adhered with more Liquid Glue.

 

Then I adhered a new Square Vellum Doily with Liquid Glue.  Over the top of that, using a Glue Dot, I wound some of the gold twine from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack.

To make the flower – I used the four dies in the Peony Die set and cut one of each from another piece of Peony Garden DSP.

The flower goes together in layers – starting with the smallest of the pieces – and adhering them together with Liquid Glue.  Slide piece 1 into piece 2 – adhere. Slide that into piece 3….and on until all the layers are adhered together.

Tip:  See the arrows pointing the notches in the die cuts?  Line up all the notches as you put it together and it’ll all work out!

Once the parts were all together – I curled the bottom petals with my Bone Folder and used my fingers to “plump” up the rest of them.  Then I stuck Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals here and there amongst the petals.  Tip:  I didn’t take the top cover off the dimensionals – I just wanted the petals supported, not stuck down. 😉

I used a sponge dauber to lightly shade the edges of the petals with Petal Pink ink.  Then I stuck two flower centers cut from So Saffron into the middle of the petals.

I cut several of the leaves die cuts in Soft Sea Foam card stock and Soft Sea Foam paper from the Subtles 6″ x 6″ DSP and adhered them together with Liquid Glue.

Then I built the collage using Liquid Glue to adhere all the pieces and parts.

I tied a bow from Gray  Granite 1/4″ Shimmer Ribbon and adhered it with a Glue Dot.

The sentiment, from Woven Heirlooms, is stamped in Gray Granite on Whisper White and fussy cut.  Then I adhered it with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

A few new Elegant Faceted Gems finished off the card front.

On the inside, I stamped a second Woven Heirlooms sentiment in Gray Granite on a Whisper White panel.  I added two peony images from Prized Peony in Gray Granite and colored them with my Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Combo and Light So Saffron Blend.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Petal Pink mat and into the Gray Granite card base and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another peony on the front…

…and more of the Peony Garden DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Isn’t that Peony stunning!?  I promise it’s not as hard as the written explanation makes it sound.  Promise.  We’ll do one soon on a video and you’ll see!  So…go ahead and get this bundle RIGHT NOW – and you’ll be all ready!

The Prized Peony stamp set has great sentiments – I just wanted slightly different ones for this card – and the Woven Heirlooms is one of my favorites!

And the gorgeous Peony Garden DSP – in Petal Pink, Basic Gray, Gray Granite and White – is elegantly beautiful!

I hope you like and are adding this Suite to your Must-Have 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…

When I saw our colors I knew I was going to be making a sunflower – or two! – using the new Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set and bundled Sunflowers Dies.  And I also figured the World of Good DSP would have some goodness in it, too!  The Many Mates set lent the perfect sentiment.  Take a look-see:

Can you – possibly?!? – guess our colors?? 🙂

I pulled a layout idea from this week’s Sunday Stamps challenge!

And it fits perfectly with the Global Design Project‘s Theme challenge, too. 🙂

I started with a piece of Bumble Bee paper from the wunnermus World of Good DSP pack, that I matted on Old Olive for the card front.

Using a Stitched Rectangle Die – and running it half way thru my die cutting machine then moving the die and going back thru the machine the other direction (to create a longer die cut) – I cut a rectangle of Old Olive.  Then I stamped the piece of card stock with the two leaves images from Celebrate Sunflowers in Old Olive for a tone-on-tone look.

Finally – I embossed the panel in the new Old World Paper 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

On another piece of the same Bumble Bee paper from the World of Good DSP set, I used my Stamparatus to stamp both sunflower images in Early Espresso.  I cut the large flower with the die from the Sunflowers Dies – and fussy cut the small flower.   There IS a die for the smaller flower – but I trimmed off the leaves so…fussy cutting was the way to go!

On Old Olive, I stamped two large leaves and one of the small double-leaf images in Old Olive – then cut them with their matching dies.  I also cut the corresponding detailed leaves from Old Olive.

From Early Espresso – I cut the large detailed flower and two flower centers.

Using Liquid Glue just in the middle – I adhered the detailed flower to the large die cut.  I also adhered the detailed leaves to their solid leaf die cuts.

On yet another piece of the World of Good DSP, I used my Stamparatus to stamp a Many Mates sentiment in Early Espresso.  Then I cut it out with a Stitched Rectangle Die and adhered it to the card front with Black Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I laid everything out – and started assembling!

I cut a smallish Stiched Shapes square from Brass Foil, embossed it in the Old World 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I adhered the large leaves to the card front with Liquid Glue – then added the large flower with more Liquid Glue.  I popped a flower center on this one with a Black Stampin’ Dimensional.

Using Liquid Glue – I adhered the small leaves to the back of the small flowers and the second flower center to the…center! 🤔

Then I used a Glue Dot to wind some gold trim from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack.  I added a bow tied from a piece of 1/4″ Bumble Bee Gingham Ribbon with another Glue Dot.

Finally – I added a couple of Black Stampin’ Dimensionals to the card front – and a Glue Dot to the middle of the gingham bow – and adhered the small flower.  Note: I left the covers on the dimensionals. I wanted their support – but did NOT want the flower to lay down that tightly.  Make sense?

To finish off – I got a little jiggy with the color challenge and added a Cinnamon Cider 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dot to the sentiment – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped the small flower a few times in Early Espresso on a Very Vanilla panel.  And that was it!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to an Old Olive mat and into my Early Espresso card base, popped the card front on with Black Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got more Celebrate Sunflowers flowers on the front in Early Espresso…

And a little more World of Good DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This card has so many elements I love – the Celebrate Sunflowers, die cut with their matching Sunflowers Dies.  World of Good DSP – with it’s old world look.  A little Old World Paper 3D Embossing.  And a collage!  Score!  Of course, Many Mates slides in with the perfect sentiment for this custom-order card!  I hope you like – and that this is on your wish list.

Or…your Bought-it-watching-for-the-UPS-truck list! 😉

Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern Sneak Peek Hello!

Good morning!  In “normal” times (different from the “new-normal” times we’re in right now), I’d say – whoo-hoo for a short week!  I suppose that it’s still true – even if you’re working from home – you DO only have to do it for four days and then there’s another weekend!  Which means you only have to put your “work jammies” on for three more days.  I’m assuming you’re already “dressed” for the day! 😉

My card today is all about the new Forever Greenery suite – with its Forever Fern stamp set bundled with the Forever Flourishing die set and the Forever Greenery DSP – in the 2020-2022 Annual Catalog.  It’s one of my favorites (which, to be fair) is a pretty long list.  I have a LOT of faves in this catalog!  For this one, I added a few pieces of the beautiful Forever Gold Laser-Cut Specialty Paper.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one was inspired by the sketch side of this week’s FUSION challenge.

I started by stamping one of the pretty leaf images from the Forever Fern stamp set in Shaded Spruce on a piece of Soft Sea Foam cardstock.  I also stamped the little splatter image in Soft Sea Foam all about, here and there!

Then I embossed the panel in one of the new Greenery Embossing Folders – the one with the leaves on top and bottom…being a Mini folder – it left about 1″ of non-embossed cardstock on the left side of the panel.

Which worked perfectly for my design!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere a strip of Forever Greenery DSP on the left side of the panel and to adhere the panel to its Shaded Spruce mat.  Then I covered the seam with a length of Just Jade 1/4″ In Color Ribbon, securing it in the back with Glue Dots.

I cut a Shaded Spruce leaf die cut with one of the gorgeous dies in the Forever Flourishing Die set, then I used Liquid Glue to adhere it, and a couple of laser-cut leaves from the Gold Forever Laser-Cut Specialty Paper.

On another piece of Soft Sea Foam, I stamped a Forever Fern sentiment in Shaded Spruce.  Around it, I added those splatters again in Soft Sea Foam.  Then I cut it out with the larger circle die cut in the new Tasteful Labels set (also coming on 3 Jun in the new catalog).

I tied a quick double loop bow from the wonderful gold twine in the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack and adhered it with a Glue Dot.  Then I adhered the sentiment over top with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added some Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels here and there and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped the big leaves image in Shaded Spruce on a Soft Sea Foam panel.  Next to it, I added a smaller image in stamped-off-once Shaded Spruce.  Then I added some more Soft Sea Foam splatters and Champagne Rhinestones.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Shaded Spruce mat and into my Petal Pink card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Forever Fern leaves in Shaded Spruce on the front…

…and more of the Forever Greenery DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I love love love this Forever Fern stamp set and it’s wonderful bundled Flourishing Forever Die Set!!

And the Forever Greenery DSP is spectacular!

I hope you like – and are counting down the days till you can get it all for yourself!  And – FYI – you can get this bundle, along with even MORE gorgeous stamp sets and bundles in my Just Cuz They’re Beautiful Special Bundle!

Finn Fan Fix


On most mornings, I leave Finn on a “stay” in the barn while I lead the ladies around to let them out in the pasture.

Some days, I feel like maybe I’m being watched

Since I know for SURE it couldn’t be Finn watching me – cuz of how he’s in the barn where I left him…I know it’s just paranoia….

Or…is it?

THAT does not look like a “stay”….

Watcha gonna do when he comes for you…for you….

Stampin’ Up! Hugs, Prayers and Love from Positive Thoughts!

Happy National Tortilla Chip Day!

Yep – that’s a real thing!

So…you’re duty bound to go your nearest Mexican food restaurant and eat chips and salsa.  Do it for your country! 😉

With that out of the way, and my public service complete for the day, let’s get on with a card, shall we?  I made a little collage for you (shocking, I know!) using the Positive Thoughts stamp set – and the coordinating Nature’s Thoughts Dies (part of the 2020 Coordination Product Release!).  Take a look-see:

The layout was inspired by this week’s CAS(E) This Sketch challenge.

On a piece of Crumb Cake card stock, using my Stamparatus, I stamped the Positive Thoughts sentiment in Mossy Meadow ink.  Then I cut it using the die from Stitched So Sweetly.

I placed a card-front sized piece of Crumb Cake into the Stamparatus and laid the sentiment label in place in the corner.  Then, I stamped the flower from Positive Thoughts in Terracotta Tile.  Then I picked up the label and inked and stamped the image a second time.  I laid the label back down, moved the stamp on the Stamparatus panel – and repeated the process a second time.

I did the same process all over again a couple more times – this time with the leaf image in Mossy Meadow.  I stamped that image twice in each spot without re-inking to help create some more depth.

Then I matted the panel on Terracotta Tile card stock.

I picked up the sentiment label and stamped the feather image in Terracotta Tile a few times without re-inking.

With the dies from the coordinating Nature’s Thoughts die set, I cut some Mossy Meadow and Vellum cardstock leaves.  Using Terracotta Tile cardstock, I spritzed a piece with some water with my Stampin’ Spritzer, then I cut two feathers.  I lightly sponged the edges of the feathers with Terracotta Tile using a Sponge Dauber and curled them slightly.

I laid out all the pieces and parts – including a Linen Thread double-loop bow – and took a picture.

I adhered all the elements – leaves and feathers – with Liquid Glue.  Then I popped the sentiment onto with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the bow with a Glue Dot….

…added a tiny Terracotta Tile butterfly (yes, cut with a die from the Nature’s Promise die set) and a few Terracotta Tile 2019-2021 In Color Faceted Dots.

And…the card front was done!

On the inside, I used the Stamparatus to add a second sentiment from Positive Thoughts in Mossy Meadow to a Crumb Cake panel.  Over that, I added the flower in stamped-off-once Terracotta Tile ink.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Terracotta Tile mat and into my Mossy Meadow card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got a few flowers on the front – in Terracotta Tile that I stamped three times without re-inking.

…and I added the leaf image in Mossy Meadow on the back of the envelope.

Et Voila!  Positive Thoughts is one of my very favorite stamp sets in the 2020 Jan – Jun Mini Catalog and I am SO happy to have the matching Nature’s Thoughts Dies!!

…especially that tiny butterfly!  So stinkin’ sweet!!  I hope you like – and will grab these two goodies up quick like the Cadbury Easter bunny! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Parisian Poppies Double Flip Fun Fold!

Good Friday morning, y’all!!  Another week – done!   Did it feel shorter (and hence…better!) with the Monday holiday??

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

I saw this Double Flip-Fold card on France Martin’s blog and thought it was so fun and easy….which it totally is!  I decided to use the Peaceful Moments Bundle and Painted Poppy stamp set – combined with gorgeous Parisian Blossom Specialty DSP.  Take a look-see:

The front of the card was already close to the FUSION sketch challenge this week – I simply modified the position of the flip portion (sliding it to the rigth instead of centered like a “normal” double-flip).  That gave me more room to collagify!

I started with the “first” card base – Basic Black at 4 1/4″ x 8 1/2″ and scored and folded it at 5 1/2″.  The “Flip” is Basic Black, 3″ x 8 1/2″, scored and folded at 4 1/4″.

I used the gorgeous Parisian Blossoms Specialty DSP on the front short panel of the first card base and on the inside back – both pieces are matted on Pool Party and adhered with Liquid Glue.

On the flip card base, I used my Stamparatus to stamp the sentiments from Peaceful Moments in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on two Whisper White panels.  On the inside panel, I also stamped two of the flowers from the Painted Poppies stamp set in Basic Gray – then I colored them with my Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Combo.   I matted each on Pool Party and adhered them inside the smaller flip card base.

Using Liquid Glue, I adhered the small card inside the larger card base.

For my collage, I used multiple dies from the Poppy Moments Die set to cut my flower and a bevy of leaf parts.  The flower has a solid piece of Petal Pink (I used a Sponge Dauber to ink the edges with Petal Pink ink) then I adhered a Basic Gray detailed flower with Liquid Glue. I cut a large flower center from Champagne Foil and adhered it with Liquid Glue, then I popped a smaller Black Foil center on top with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

For the leaves, I cut solid and detailed leaves in Pool Party and Champagne Foil, and also in Pool Party vellum from the So Very Vellum Specialty DSP (coming on 3 March in the second Sale-A-Bration Release!).  I glued the leaf parts together and then…started doing my dry-fit on the front of the card (which is the front of the smaller flip card base!

When I was happy – I took a picture with my phone…

Then I picked up the flower and took a second picture.

I adhered all the leaves with Liquid Glue.

Using Whisper White Solid Baker’s Twine, I made a loose double-loop figure-eight (I show this in the video!) and stuck it in the middle of the leaves with a couple of Glue Dots.  Then I popped the flower over top with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewel – and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another Painted Poppies flower in Basic Gray and Petal Pink on the front…

…and a little more Parisian Blossoms Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This Double-Flip Fun Fold is crazy easy so I hope you’ll try it soon!  I also wanted you to see how well the Peaceful Moments and Painted Poppies Bundles work with other papers like this Parisian Blossoms Specialty DSP!  The Peaceful Poppies DSP is gorgeous but…don’t be afraid to mix-and-match!  I hope you like! 🙂

Finn Fan Fix


On Wednesday, we picked up a new toilet.

Yes – the life of a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator is glamourous, indeed.

We’ve needed a new toilet for a minute – in our second bathroom.

By minute, I mean…well.  A MINUTE!

FINALLY broke down and paid for a “special order” toilet.  Meaning – we wanted it in bone.  Seriously?!?  BONE is a “special order”?!?

Why yes.  Yes it is.

Anywho – we finally got it.

So the menfolk put it in on Wednesday evening.

Gettin’ that old one out’s gonna be a booger, Dad.  You’re prolly gonna get wet!

Wiggle it, Dad – you gotta get it down on that wax thingy!

Doya need a tool or anything??  I’m a little thirsty…..how much longer were ya thinkin’??

Hmmm.  Those’r some complicated directions.  Why we reading directions??  We MEN!  Don’t need no stinkin’ directions!

Mary’s note:  that last picture is probably Pulitzer worthy.  Rare sighting of y-chromosomes reading instructions!

Stampin’ Up! Aloha in the Timeless Tropics

Good morning, y’all!  Do you realize that we’re like…exactly half-way thru Sale-A-Bration??  Which means – there’s still time for you to take advantage of the AWESOME joining special we’ve got going on!  And I would sure love to have you join the team – ask me how!!

My card today is from one of my very favorite suites in the 2020 Jan – Jun Mini Catalog – the Tropical Oasis Suite!!  It’s a card that would work great for a retirement – a bon voyage – or just someone who needs to be reminded to chill out and relax every once in a while!  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one comes from this week’s As You See It challenge.

I started with the woven-design paper from the Tropical Oasis DSP and embossed it in the Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder.  Then I matted it on Mango Melody for the card front.

On a piece of Whisper White, I stamped the large flower from Timeless Tropical in Saddle Brown Stazon Ink.  I colored both of them with my Light Mango Melody Stampin’ Blend, adding some additional color with the Light Calypso Coral Blend.  Then I cut them with the matching die in the In the Tropics die set.

I used an Old Olive design from the DSP and cut out a pineapple top and several smaller leaves.  I did the same from a piece of Mossy Meadow card stock (I spritzed the card stock lightly with water, first).

I also cut a strip of another design in the Tropical Oasis DSP and bannerized both ends with Paper Snips.

Finally, I cut three of the Aloha sentiment dies from In the Tropics in Mango Melody and stacked them up with Liquid Glue.

Then – time to collage-i-fy!

I laid everything out – including a short length of 5/8″ Burlap Ribbon…

…and when I liked it – I started building!

I adhered the first stamped flower with Liquid Glue – then added pineapple tops and leaves, all with Liquid Glue.

Then I added the bannerized DSP strip.

I popped the second stamped flower on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

With a little strip of SNAIL, I adhered the Burlap Ribbon.  Then I used Liquid Glue to adhere the stacked sentiment.

I cut several little In the Tropics flowers from Daffodil Delight and Terracotta Tile and adhered them together and then to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I tied a simple bow with a double length of Grapefruit Grove twine from the Nature’s Twine pack and adhered it with a Glue Dot.  Then I added some Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the little flower centers and the card front was done!

On the inside, I used my Stamparatus to stamp the sentiment and trees from Timeless Tropical.  I inked the sentiment in Mango Melody and stamped it on a Whisper White panel.  Then I used a Sponge Dauber to lightly add Terracotta Tile ink to just the tops of the letters and stamped it again.  I did that until I was happy – with a sort of “sunset” look to the sentiment.  For the trees – I did Marker-to-Rubber to color the stamps, with Pear Pizzazz and Old Olive Stampin’ Write Markers on the tree-tops and Crumb Cake and Soft Suede Markers for the trunks.  Another Champagne Rhinestone found its way onto the panel, too!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Mango Melody mat and into my Terracotta Tile card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Timeless Tropical trees on the front…

…and some Tropical Oasis DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Boy – I do LOVE this Timeless Tropical bundle with the beautiful In the Tropics Dies – look how great they are for making lush, tropical collages!!  Don’t miss out on making leaves from the Tropical Oasis DSP, either!!  Such fun.  I hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix


So – the other night Wayne and I went over to our friend’s for dinner.  Finn stayed home sleeping.

While we were there, I gathered a little….evidence.

This is Jax.

Please note the intense and highly focused stare.

Do you recognize the dude with the Fritos?  Perhaps the hat is a clue??

Does this picture remind you of….any OTHER picture you’ve ever seen?

I believe we’ve identified the common denominator…. 😉

Stampin’ Up! Back on Your Feet in a Tropical Oasis

Well.  It’s happened again.  It’s Friday!  Whoo-hooo!!  Hope you’ve got a good weekend coming up.

Just a PSA – today is the LAST DAY to “cash” in on my Double Peppermints Ordering Special.  Don’t miss out, okay?  That is all.

A friend of mine recently took a spill and, in a split-second decision, opted to land on her knee instead of her noggin.  Which – while a good plan in the big scheme of things, still HURT like crazy!  So – I needed a good-for-a-smile get well card.  I think the images in Back on Your Feet are just the thing, don’t you?  And I put my guy in the Tropics – courtesy of the new Tropical Oasis Suite.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from this week’s CAS(E) This Sketch challenge – although I cheated the sentiment placement…

I started with some Tropical Oasis DSP – I think this one is leading the pack for my fave new DSP!! – that I matted on Terracotta Tile for the card front.  Then I took a second design and matted it on Terracotta Tile to create the DSP strip.

For the art, I used my Stamparatus to stamp the too-cute sloth in Soft Suede ink on Whisper White.  I colored the image with my Soft Suede and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Combos.  I used a Blender Pen to pick up ink from the lid of my Terracotta Tile ink pad to color the bandage.

I added “ouch” in Terracotta TIle, then matted the panel and popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I used some SNAIL to adhere two pieces of Terracotta Tile 1/2″ Scalloped Linen Ribbon.

On Whisper White, I stamped the small flower and the leaf from Timeless Tropical in Soft Suede.  I colored the flower with my Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends Combo – and my Blender Pen with Terracotta TIle.  The leaf is colored with the Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Combo.  I cut them with their dies in the Timeless Tropical Dies.

I sponged some Old Olive on a piece of Pear Pizzazz and then cut three of the leaves in the Timeless Tropical dies.

Then I built the collage.

I popped the large leaf on with a Stampin’ Dimensional.  Next, I made a double-loop with some Linen Thread – twisted it into a figure-8 and adhered it with a Glue Dot.  Then I added the flower with a Dimensional.  I tucked the leaves in here and there with Liquid Glue.

I finished with a Terracotta Tile Faceted Gem (annual catalog) in the middle of the flower and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped a second Back on Your Feet sentiment in Terracotta Tile on a Whisper White panel.  In the corner, I stamped the small flower in Soft Suede.  I also stamped the image on a sticky note and fussy cut it to create a mask.  I covered the flower on the panel with the mask and added the leaf a few times.  The images are colored just like I did on the front – and I added another Terracotta Tile Faceted Dot.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Terracotta Tile mat and into my Soft Suede card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another flower and leaves on the front…

…and a little more Tropical Oasis DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I feel pretty sure this will bring a smile, which is always the point of a get-well card, right?  The cute images and sweet sentiments in Back on Your Feet are punny-ly fun and yet convey that we care!  And Tropical Oasis – the Timeless Tropical stamp set, In the Tropics dies and Tropical Oasis DSP…well.  This is fast becoming my favorite suite in the 2020 Jan-Jun Mini Catalog!  I hope you like!

Finn has a bit of a…Licker….problem.  In that – he can’t hold his licker. 😉

He has no control when it comes to anything that might contain a whiff, trace or smidge of food.

He doesn’t even care what that food is…steak…salmon…broccoli…

But – every licker-holic needs an enabler.
