Congratulations

Stampin’ Up! Udderly Over the Moon!

Happy Tuesday, y’all!  Hope the week is going well – and that if you are – or are not – or might be – or might not be – maybe – possibly – in the path of Dorian…that you’re doing okay.  🙂

My card today is a quick and easy one – with some fun embossing using Shimmer Black Embossing Powder to create the cute image from the Over the Moon stamp set!  Take a look-see:

The color scheme is thanks to the Global-Design-Project color theme this week.

I played along with The Paper Players “Down on the Farm” theme…

…and with the TGIF Product Spotlight Challenge! 🙂

I started with a piece of So Saffron card stock and matted it on Basic Black for the card front.

Then I cut two pieces of Mint Macaron paper from the Subtles 6″ x 6″ DSP and matted them on Basic Black as well.  I adhered them both to the card front with Liquid Glue.

For the art, I inked up the sweet little cow-dudette from Over The Moon in Versamark Ink and stamped it on a piece of Whisper White.  Then I sprinkled it with some Shimmer Black Embossing Powder and heat embossed it.  I did the same with the heart-conversation bubble.  Aaaannddd…while I was at it – I heat embossed the heart-conversation bubble on a seperate piece of Whisper White and set it aside for the time being.

I carefully colored the image with Stampin Blends (remember – the ink wants to react with the embossing powder – so…be discrete and stay off of it as much as you can!).  I used my Dark Black, Light and Dark Smoky Slate and Light Rococo Rose.  I colored her boots and horns with my So Saffron Stampin’ Write Marker.

I matted the panel on Basic Black and added it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I colored the second heart-conversation bubble with my Dark Rococo Rose Stampin’ Blend and then fussy cut it.  It’s popped onto the card front with a couple of Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the Over The Moon sentiment in Rococo Rose on Whisper White and punched it with the Classic Label Punch.  I edged it with the So Saffron Stampin’ Write Marker and popped it onto the art panel with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside, I added the cow and conversation bubble images again – this time in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink – on a Whisper White panel.  I colored her as I’d done on the front.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Basic Black mat and into my Rococo Rose card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got the cow and bubble treatment on the front…

…and a little more of the Mint Macaron Subtles 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Okay – you can’t NOT love this little cow dude/dude-ette from the Over The Moon stamp set.  It simply isn’t possible. And when you throw in the sweet little sentiments – it’s a win-win-win!!  Hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Check You Out Congratulations!

Happy Friday!  I hope your week has gone well – we’ve been getting back into the swing of things.  And trying to figure out what time zone we’re in! LOL!

Speaking of time-zones – if you live in Alabama – this is your Tax-Free Weekend!  Read down below to see what SU! products qualify for this big savings – then get shopping (and earn you some Bonus Days coupons while you’re at it!).

I’ve got a cute little number for you today, using a stamp set that you may have missed in your early looks thru the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.  This one is called Check You Out – and…it’s totes adorbs!  Check it out!

How cute is that little owl?!?

I took inspiration for the layout from this week’s Tuesday Morning Sketches challenge.

And the colors are from The Paper Players color challenge.

I started with a Basic Gray card base and stamped it all over with books from the Check You Out set.  I put all three book images onto an acrylic block, inked them with Blueberry Bushel and stamped them multiple times across the card front.

I used a piece of Granny Apple Green and a same-size piece of scripty paper in Blueberry Bushel from the 2018-2020 In Color 6″ x 6″ DSP to create the card front, adhering them at jaunty angles with Liquid Glue.

I cut a Rectangle Stitched Die from Whisper White and stamped a Check You Out sentiment at the bottom in Blueberry Bushel.

I cut a length of Granny Apple Green 1/2″ Textured Weave Ribbon, doubled it over and used SNAIL to adhere it to the Whisper White panel.  Then I added a Mini Library Clip at the top and popped it all onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Using my Stamparatus, I stamped the check-out card in Balmy Blue on a piece of Whisper White.  I added the little owl in Basic Gray and a sentiment in Blueberry Bushel.  Then I fussy cut the image (cutting off the extra “owl’ – what I really wanted was his feet! 😉 ).

I stamped the owl again in Basic Gray, added some Granny Apple Green spectacles and fussy cut him.

I popped the check-out card onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals – then used Mini Dimensionals and Liquid Glue to add the fussy cut owl.  Finally, I tied a little bow from Blueberry Bushel 1/8″ Grosgrain Ribbon and adhered it to the Library Clip with a Glue Dot – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added another Check You Out sentiment in Blueberry Bushel on a Whisper White panel.  I added a Balmy Blue mortar board (don’t need a graduation card?  Leave that off!).

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Granny Apple Green and into the Basic Gray card base and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another Basic Gray owl, Granny Apple Green spectacles and a Balmy Blue mortar board on the front…

…and more of the Blueberry Bushel 2018-2020 In Color DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Seriously?  How sweet is that little hoo-ter!?  I just love the glasses, don’t you?  Although it’s kind of a “fly-over set”, Check You Out is a versatile set, with sentiments for thank you, congratulations, graduation and “just checking up” cards.  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Frosted Royal Peacock for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hey y’all – it’s Thursday, so it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!!  Today’s Hop is a sketch challenge – and I’m excited to see what everyone comes up with –  I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop!

I decided to play with the gorgeously stunning colors and images in the Noble Peacock Suite – including the Royal Peacock stamp set, bundled Detailed Peacock Dies and the Noble Peacock Specialty DSP and Foil.  Take a look-see:

And here’s the sketch that inspired us all today!

I started with a piece of the Old Olive Noble Peacock Foil and embossed it in the Beads & Baubles Embossing Folder – and that became the card front.

Using a piece of the Pretty Peacock paper in the Noble Peacock Specialty DSP, I took the edgelit die from the new Magnolia Memory Die set and cut the scalloped edge.  I adhered that cut panel to the embossed card front with Liquid Glue.

I cut a few peacock feathers from Old Olive and Pretty Peacock foils using the Detailed Peacock Dies – then I adhered them ever-so-artistically onto the card front with Liquid Glue.

For the sentiment, which is actually two sentiment stamps from the Royal Peacock stamp set, I stamped each phrase in Old Olive on Whisper White.  I pulled out the two-die label combination from the Frosted Bouquet Die set and cut the sentiment.  I cut an Old Olive foil mat using the second die (which creates a perfectly-sized mat!) and adhered the sentiment to it with Liquid Glue.

I stamped the flower image from Royal Peacock twice in Pretty Peacock ink on Whisper White and colored them with my Light Old Olive Stampin’ Blend.  Then I cut them with the matching die in the Detailed Peacock set.  I popped them onto the sentiment with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Then I popped the whole thing onto the card front with more Dimensionals.

I added some Noble Peacock Rhinestones to the flower centers and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped a second Royal Peacock sentiment in Old Olive on Whisper White.  Next to it I added a couple of flourishes in Pretty Peacock, coloring them with my Light Old Olive Blend.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to an Old Olive Noble Peacock foil mat and into my Thick Whisper White card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got a couple of Royal Peacock flourishes on the front…

…and a couple of the flower images on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  These colors in the Noble Peacock Suite are just so rich and gorgeous together, aren’t they?  And I love the sentiments and images in the Royal Peacock stamp set.  I am also a huge fan of the Detailed Peacock Die set – especially those wonderful feathers (which are stunning and very Peacock-y in the Foil!!).  I hope you like!

Now that you’ve seen my card, take a minute to hop thru all our projects today  If you click on the Next Blog button, you’ll go right to Kristi’s page. And you can just click on the names below to go direct to all the blogs!

Stampin’ Up! Silhouette Above The Clouds

Good morning!  We’re on the cusp of the weekend!  Hope you’ve got something fun planned.  Our friend is coming over tomorrow morning to get a refresher on feeding the ladies while we’re gone.

The list is pretty long for something so simple!

I might have some control issues…

I’ve been having a lot of fun with the new See A Silhouette DSP and today is no exception.  For this one, I pulled some swirly – blue – sky-like paper and added some hot air balloons from the Above The Clouds bundle.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one came from this week’s Paper Players sketch challenge.

And “Balloons” was the theme challenge over at the Global Design Project.

I started with the swirly blue paper from the See A Silhouette DSP and matted it on Mango Melody for the card front.

The vertical panel is a piece of Whisper White card stock.  Using the clouds image from Above The Clouds, I stamped the image three times in Balmy Blue.  I added Night of Navy bird silhouettes by the clouds.

On two more pieces of the See a Silhouette DSP, I stamped balloon images in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  Since I didn’t want colored borders (which I’d have gotten if I’d use the Hot Air Balloon Punch) – I fussy cut them – and then tidied up the lines with my Journaling Pen.

I adhered the balloons with Liquid Glue to the Whisper White panel.

I stamped the balloon basket in Balmy Blue (the “fill”) and Night of Navy (the wicker) on Whisper White and punched it with the Hot Air Balloon Punch – then adhered it under the bottom balloon with Liquid Glue.

The sentiment, from Above The Clouds, is stamped on a strip of Whisper White.  I bannerized it with my Paper Snips, edged it with my Balmy Blue Stampin’ Write Marker and adhered it with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added some more Night of Navy birds on the balloons themselves to give the card some depth.  Then I stamped more clouds in Balmy Blue on Whisper White and fussy cut them – and popped them over the balloons with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.  A few Frosted & Clear Epoxy Droplets finished off the card front.

On the inside, I stamped another balloon in Tuxedo Black on a Whisper White panel.  Inside it, I stamped a second Above The Clouds sentiment in Night of Navy.  Then I punched out a balloon from a Sticky Note using the Hot Air Balloon Punch and laid it over the balloon on the panel as a mask.  I stamped some more Balmy Blue clouds and Night of Navy birds.  When I picked up the sticky note mask, the balloon appeared to be floating in front of the clouds!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Mango Melody mat and into my Night of Navy card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another balloon, sentiment, clouds and birds on the front…

…and some more See A Silhouette DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I am really loving this See A Silhouette DSP, aren’t you?  And the Above The Clouds bundle – with its wonderful sentiments and coordinating Hot Air Balloon Punch, is really a good one!  I hope you like!

Good morning – it’s….Friday!!  Whoo-hoooo!!!!  I am ready for a weekend, y’all – how’s about you??

Stampin’ Up! Smooth Sailing Home For You!

Well.  Say it with me, now!  Happy Happy (I’m pointing the mic out at YOU!!!)…HHAWWWMP DAY!!!

I’ve got a simple little card (well – actually it’s a bit BIGger than usual!) for you today – using the Come Sail Away Memories & More Card Pack and the Sailing Home bundle.  Take a look-see:

For the color scheme, I played along with the cool Just Us Girls challenge this week.

Heck – I even used Blues as my color! 🙂

I started with one of the cool laser-die-cut panels in the Come Sail Away Memories & More Card Pack and used Liquid Glue around the edge to adhere it to a Whisper White cardstock panel for the card front.

I wrapped a length of new 3/8″ Denim Ribbon around the panel, securing it in the back with Glue Dots.

I used another – smaller – panel from the card pack and cut it down a little more.  Then I adhered a same-size piece of Night of Navy to the card front with Liquid Glue.  I popped the Memories & More card over top with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The sentiment, from the Sailing Home stamp set, is stamped in Night of Navy on Whisper White – then I cut it with the little banner die in the Smooth Sailing Die set.  I used Liquid Glue to adhere it to the sail boat panel.

I used a couple more dies to cut a Night of Navy wheel and a Balmy Blue rope.  I adhered them next to the card with Liquid Glue.  Then I popped a Sail Away Trinket (the anchor) on with a Glue Dot.

I tied a bow from the Denim Ribbon and adhered it with a Glue Dot.  And that finished off the card front.

On the inside, I stamped a second Sailing Home sentiment in Night of Navy on a Whisper White panel.  I placed both sailboat stamps on an acrylic block, inked them in Balmy Blue and stamped them once on scrap paper.  Without re-inking, I stamped them over top of the sentiment.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Whisper White mat and into my Night of Navy card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Large Memories & More Envelope got full-strength Balmy Blue sailboats on the front…

…and I added some Come Sail Away DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This Come Sail Away suite remains one of my favorite new products from the new catalog – how about you??  I just love the coordinating Sailing Home stamp set and bundled Smooth Sailing Dies and the perfect Come Sail Away DSP.  And the Come Sail Away Memories & More Card Pack?  Fug-et-aboutit!  I hope you like!

First – we clean the barn and spread the manure.  I help my Mom get around the place, making sure she doesn’t get losed.  Or accosted by a squirrel.  Or one of those danged BUGS!

Then, we stop to make sure the ponies have clean, fresh water, cuz it’s really hot right now and they like a good drink.

So do I!

Finally, once all our morning chores are done, we come back in the house.

The air conditioning feels really good – and it always makes me kind of sleepy.

So – I sleep!

Stampin’ Up! Dandelion Wishes and Magnolias

Happy Friday, y’all!  Are you ready for a weekend?  I am – you’d think this had NOT been a four-day week! 🙂

So – we’ve been invited to an…odd?…party in a couple of weeks.  Apparently there’s going to be food and drink and games and karaoke and a wedding and some prizes and…wait.  What now?

A wedding?

Yes.  A wedding might “break out”.  Like…a flash-mob?

I haven’t a clue.  But – like military wives of yore (at least I HOPE it’s all “yore” now!) – I’m going to – figuratively – have my white gloves in my purse.  JIC.

In this instance, my “white gloves” will be a wedding-appropriate card just waiting to be signed.

You know.  If a Wedding. Breaks. Out. 😉

It was actually pretty quick and easy and uses one of my favorite (and carrying over!) stamp sets – called Dandelion Wishes.  And I paired it with some new Magnolia Lane DSP!  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! New Wonders Sneak Peek

Stampin’ UP! Mosaic Mood Daisy Lane Sneak Peek

Guess what DAY IT IS?!?  Yep!  You know it to be THAT DAY!

I’ve got a sneak peek for you today – we got the new Daisy Lane stamp set AND a pack of Mosaic Mood Specialty DSP as a little part of our “swag” at OnStage last weekend – as well as the new Timeless Label Punch (all of these will be available to customers on 4 Jun 19!).  So – since I’d been so excited to get these little goodies, I decided to share a project I made with them!  Take a look-see:

I took a little inspiration for some of the elements on the card from the samples in the new 2019-2020 Annual Catalog!  And – I let the theme from this week’s Just Us Girls Challenge give me a hand, too!

Before we get too far – check the Daisy Lane stamp set (coming on 4 Jun).  This one coordinates with the Daisy Punch (which you may already have – if you don’t, you can pick it up right now and be ready!) and…there’s a new MEDIUM DAISY PUNCH coming in the catalog!!  Whoo-hooo!

And check out this gorgeous Mosaic Mood Specialty DSP!  It’s got mosaic tile images with shiny accents and I love it already!

Okay – so let’s make a card!

I started with some Very Vanilla, matted on Soft Suede for the card front.  On top of that, I used Liquid Glue to adhere a square of the Mosaic Mood Specialty DSP (4 Jun availability).

For the art panel, I first used my Stamparatus to stamp a couple of leaves and stems from Daisy Lane in Mint Macaron on a Very Vanilla panel.  I also inked the smallest daisy image from Daisy Lane in Crushed Curry, stamped it off once, and added it a couple of times around the leaves.

Then I matted the panel on Soft Suede and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

On a separate piece of Very Vanilla, I stamped three large daisies and three medium daisies from Daisy Lane in Crushed Curry.  I punched the large ones with the Daisy Punch – and fussy cut the smaller ones.  In about a month, I’ll use the Medium Daisy Punch – and YOU SHOULD, TOO! 🙂

I built my flowers by adhering them together with a Stampin’ Dimensional – either regular size or mini.  Then I added a Gold Faceted Gem to the middle of each flower.

The sentiment, also from Daisy Lane, is stamped in Mint Macaron on Very Vanilla and cut out with the new Timeless Label Punch (4 Jun).  I added some small Daisy Lane daisies over top in stamped-off-once Crushed Curry.  Then I used my Soft Suede Stampin’ Write Marker to edge the label.

I created a “pot” with a strip of Soft Suede (for the top “rim”) and an angled piece that I also embossed in the Basket Weave Dynamic TIEF (carrying over!).  I adhered the pot to the panel with Liquid Glue and popped the “rim” on with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the stacked daisies and Stampin’ Dimensionals for the sentiment.  Then I added a Mint Macaron bow from Nature’s Twine and a final Gold Faceted Gem.  Then I fussy cut a few leaves from the Mosaic Mood Specialty DSP and stuck them in here and there with Liquid Glue to finish the card front.  Check that adorable bee!

On the inside, I used my Stamparatus to add a second sentiment from Daisy Lane in Mint Macaron on a Very Vanilla panel – then I added a stamped-off-once Crushed Curry daisy over top.

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

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got more daisies on the front – I stamped the ones on the right side twice without re-inking, and the one on the left is stamped-off-once…

…and I added a little more Mosaic Mood Specialty DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voial!  Oh.  My.  Goodness!!  How awesome is this stamp set, y’all!??  And the beautiful Mosaic Mood Specialty DSP?  I mean seriously!  And the fact that we’re getting a new Medium Daisy Punch (and the current Daisy Punch AND Daisy Delight stamp sets are carrying over!!) means we’re going to have SO many options for creating gorgeous florals on our projects!  Get the Daisy Delight stamp set and Daisy Punch NOW and then add these new goodies to your wish list!

Hope you like!

Here is the updated lists – the Occasions Catalog list hasn’t changed – just the list for the Annual Catalog! 🙂

2019 Occasions Catalog Retiring Products

UPDATED 2018-2019 Annual Catalog Retiring Products

Or…click these links to go to my Online Store for the most up-to-date information!

Please note, some of the bundle items may be carrying over into the new 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.  However, the bundle pricing will go away, so get them while you can at the discounted price!

Carryover Clear-Mount and Wood-Mount Stamps

There are stamp sets that are currently offered in clear-mount or wood-mount (in the 2018–2019 Annual Catalog), that ARE carrying over – but are being transitioned to Cling Mount.

These transition sets that will be in the 2019–2020 annual catalog –  will continue to be offered in clear-mount and/or wood-mount until existing inventory has been depleted or until June 4, 2019 (whichever comes first).  If the inventory is depleted, you will be notified of the automatic switch to cling when placing an order for that stamp set. This means that you may end up purchasing select cling stamp sets (in carryover artwork) before they can be ordered from the catalog!  All carryover rubber stamp sets will be available in cling medium only (with the exception of background stamps in North America) beginning June 4, 2019.

Click here to see the list of stamp sets that ARE carrying over as Cling sets. 🙂

Happy Shopping!
