Stampin’ Up! Paper In Blooms Fun Fold 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 theme challenge to work with 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 decided to play with the In Bloom Bundle and the coordinating Paper Blooms DSP (this is from the Sale-A-Bration catalog and is FREE with a $50 purchase – but ONLY thru 28 Feb when SAB ends!) to create a super easy fun-fold.  Take a look-see:

And – the fun fold wasn’t an accident! 😉

I also played along with the TGIF challenge this week!

And I played along with the Tic-Tac-Toe challenge, too! I went across the middle!

This is a super easy fun fold – which is why I love it!

I started with a striped piece of Paper Blooms DSP that I matted on Petal Pink cardstock, then adhered to a piece of Night of Navy – so the card front and card base was all done! 🙂

I cut a smaller piece of Night of Navy to make the little front card.

I matted another design of Paper Blooms DSP to a Petal Pink mat and adhered it to the front of the small card.  Then I adhered the card to the center of my cardbase with Liquid Glue.

Next, I used the dies in the bundled Pierced Blooms Die set to cut a couple of flowers from one of the Paper Blooms DSP papers.

I also used the dies – there are a LOT of them and they’re all super fun! – to cut some Petal Pink, Seaside Spray and Night of Navy flowers and leaves.

On a piece of Basic White, I stamped the sentiment from In Bloom in Night of Navy and cut it with the label die in Pierced Blooms.

I started adhering flowers and leaves – starting at the right side of the card front – with Liquid Glue.  Then I added the sentiment.  More leaves and flowers followed on the other side.  I used some Stampin’ Dimensionals as needed to support petals and leaves.  The little striped flower on top is also popped up with Dimensionals.

I added some Night of Navy gems from the Holiday Rhinestones and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a sentiment from Oval Occasions in Night of Navy to a Basic White panel.  In the corner, I added flowers from In Bloom in Petal Pink, Night of Navy and Seaside Spray.  Then I added a few Night of Navy Holiday Rhinestones in the middle of a couple three flowers.

I matted the panel on Petal Pink and then adhered it inside the card with Liquid Glue and my fun-fold was done!

My Basic White Medium Envelope got more In Bloom flowers on the front….

…and a little more Paper Blooms DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  See why I love this fun-fold?  So quick and easy but just enough “different” to get your recipient’s attention!  The In Bloom set – with its bundled Pierced Blooms Dies – is a perfect accompaniment to the pretty Paper Blooms DSP (how cool is it that the dies cut some of the flowers from the DSP!?).

Et Voila!  If you’d like to recreate this card, all the products and card cuts are listed below!  And…be sure to snag some of this Paper Blooms DSP, okay?  It’s gone when Sale-A-Bration ends on the 28th!

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 Jaimie’s page. And you can just click on the names below to go direct to all the blogs!

Stampin’ Up! New Butterfly Bouquet Sneak Peek with Video Tutorial!

Good morning and happy Friday!  Whatcha got planned for the weekend?  Something fun?  Working outside?  Shoveling snow?  I don’t know for sure what we WILL be doing – but, I do know – FOR SURE – that we will NOT be shoveling snow! 😉

If you were able to join me for my YouTube live yesterday, I appreciate you spending part of your day with me!  If not, here’s the replay!

You might not recognize the elements of this card – and that’s cuz…it’s not available yet!  Nope – this is the Butterfly Bouquet bundle and some new designer paper!  These are available to demonstrators right now – and folks who JOIN right now!! – and will be available to customers on 2 March!  You’ll get more details as we get closer, I promise!  I got mine in the mail on Thursday morning and went to work right away to make a card to share with you.  This is an image-only set, so I added a sentiment and banner from the Vine Design bundle.  Take a look-see:

 

The layout for this card is from the Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge.

And the colors are from the Color Throwdown Challenge.

I started with a piece of the new Nature’s Touch Specialty DSP – this is part of the Butterfly Brilliance collection – and it’s truly gorgeous!  This paper – literally – has texture like a wooden surface.  No – you won’t get splinters, but…it’s very realistic!!  I matted it on Purple Posy for the card front.

I pulled out the Brilliant Wings Dies (bundled with the Butterfly Brilliance stamp set) and…using the biggest die…

 

…I cut out 6 gorgeous butterflies from one of the designs in the Butterfly Bijou 6″ x 6″ DSP.  Look!

This paper is gorgeous, too, y’all – you get 48 sheets – 8 each of 6 double-sided designs!  Think of the possibilities!

I also used three of the detailed butterfly dies and cut three Vellum cardstock butterflies.  Using my Fine Tip Glue Pen, and putting glue just under the bodies of the butterflies, I adhered the vellum die cuts to the DSP cuts.  I used Pearl Basic Jewels on all three butterfly bodies.

I used a couple of Glue Dots to adhere a Gold Hoop Embellishment to the card front.  Then I tied a Linen Thread Double-loop bow and adhered it with another Glue Dot.

I popped the largest Mint Macaron butterfly on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a piece of Basic White, I stamped the sentiment from Vine Design in Mint Macaron, then cut it with the label die in the bundled Flowering Vine die set.  I adhered it with Liquid Glue.

I added the pink butterfly with Liquid Glue and popped the small yellow guy on with more Dimensionals.

Using my Dark Purple Posy Stampin’ Blend, I colored one medium and four small Pearl Basic Jewels, which I added to the card front to finish off the card front.

On the inside, I used my Stamparatus to stamp just the top part of the big Butterfly Bouquet image onto the bottom of a panel of Basic White in Tuxedo Black.  I colored them with my Purple Posy and Mint Macaron Blends Combos and the Dark Daffodil Delight and Poppy Parade Blends.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Purple Posy mat and into my Basic Black card base, adhered the card front with Liquid Glue and the card was done.

My Basic White Medium Envelope got more of the Butterfly Bouquet flutterbies on the front…

…and another design from Butterfly Bijou on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Well???  Do you love it already!?!  Boy – I sure do.  Gotta say – when I first saw it I was thinking…more butterflies?  What??  But now?  Oh yes.

So – are you tracking that the Butterfly Bouquet set is a SINGLE stamp?  Yes – all 6 butterflies are on a single piece of red rubber.  AND – that image is cut perfectly by the large die in the Brilliant Wings set (the same one that cuts the DSP butterflies!).  So…stamped and colored or…cut from the DSP…you get 6 gorgeous die cuts in one pass thru your Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine!

The two designer papers – which will only be available during the Butterfly Bouquet Promotion (2 Mar – 3 May) are equally gorgeous! Be sure to check out the flyer down below!

I hope you like – and are ANXIOUSLY awaiting your chance to get them for yourself.  Or…you could ALSO join the Stampin’ Up! team as a hobby demonstrator and get them right now!  Holler at me and I’ll tell you how!

If you’d like to recreate this card, all the products and card cuts are listed below!

Finn Fan Fix 

So – Wednesday was World Read Aloud Day.

Did you celebrate? 😉

Well – Finn and I took part in a HUGE online ZOOM read-aloud with our friends at People Animals Love (PALS).  During the course of the day, 120 PAL dogs listened to young readers from across the USA and Canada–and one child from Cyprus!  Fun!

Finn and I listed to a story about Fangsgiving with one young person and Clifford the Big Red Dog with another.

Finn sorta got sleepy – what’s a guy to do when you’re hearing bedtime stories!?

So….let’s play a game!  Where’s Finn?!?

Stampin’ Up! Fine Art Floral Gallery Easy Card Set with Video Tutorial!

Good morning and happy Friday!  Hoping that your week went well – and that you’re ready for a weekend.  Not for nuthin’ – this is National Corn Chip Day.  Pretty sure that there’s no calories if you’re CELEBRATING a National Day.  So…go forth and eat corn chips!

What does that have to do with card making or today’s card?  Absolutely.  Nothing! 😉

I’ve got a whole set of pretty cards for you today – that would be perfect for gifting.  Or…keeping for yourself!  If you were able to join me for my YouTube live yesterday, I appreciate you spending part of your day with me!  If not, here’s the replay!

I used the Art Gallery Bundle and pretty (okay – it’s actually GORGEOUS!) Fine Art Floral DSP to make 6 cards that cover multiple occasions.  And I did it quick – thanks to my awesome and amazing Stamparatus.  Take a look-see:

The layout that I used is from The Paper Players challenge this week:

I created the cards and envelopes in 6 different color combinations….

The video shows the process pretty well – but…here we go!

I started with a piece of the Fine Art Floral DSP in a coordinating color for each of the card combinations – and matted them on the appropriate colored cardstock.  The mats for the card fronts and inner liners are in Terracotta Tile, Poppy Parade, Misty Moonlight, Bumble Bee, Blackberry Bliss and Night of Navy.

Next, I cut a piece of Basic White cardstock with the largest Stitched So Sweetly rectangle die.  Then I placed it in my Stamparatus and stamped the large flower from Art Gallery.  This is a 3-step stamped image.

Step 1:  largest (least detailed) image:  stamped in Terracotta Tile, Poppy Parade, Balmy Blue, Daffodil Delight, Rich Razzleberry, or Misty Moonlight.

Step 2: next largest (more detailed) image: stamped in Merry Merlot, Cajun Craze, Misty Moonlight, Bumble Bee, Blackberry Bliss or Night of Navy.

Step 3: smallest and most detailed image: stamped in Merry Merlot, Cajun Craze, Misty Moonlight, Bumble Bee, Blackberry Bliss or Night of Navy.

I popped the art panels onto the card fronts with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped various sentiments from the Art Gallery set in the same colors that I’d used for the Step 2 and Step 3 flower images and cut them with the label dies in Floral Gallery.  The sentiments are popped on with Dimensionals.

I colored 6 Rhinestone Basic Jewels for each card, using the Dark Stampin’ Blend from the Terracotta Tile, Poppy Parade, Misty Moonlight, Daffodil Delight, Blackberry Bliss or Night of Navy Blend Combos.  I put three of them on the card front and that was it!

On the inside, I stamped the flower again in the bottom left corner of a Basic White panel and added the other three colored Rhinestones.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panels to their coordinating mats, popped the card fronts on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the cards were done.

My Basic White Medium Envelopes got the Art Gallery flowers on the front…

…and more of the Fine Art Floral DSP on the envelope flaps.

This is a pretty little set of cards – and they’d make for a really sweet gift!  Simply wrap the bundle in a little Blackberry Bliss Striped Ribbon and tie a pretty bow!

Et Voila!  Clean.  Simple.  Quick.  Easily repeatable.  TOTALLY not a typical “Mary-card”, right? 😉 But – the Fine Art Bundle with its Floral Gallery Dies has all the pretty flowers and sentiments for so many occasions!

And there’s no doubting the gorgeousness of the Fine Art Floral DSP!

I hope you like!

If you’d like to recreate this card, all the products and card cuts are listed below!

P.S.  Want to make all these cards?  Set up an assembly line.

  1.  Cut all your card stock and DSP.
  2. Place the inner liner into the Stamparatus – make note of where the bottom left corner is placed (I used a crossing of two ruler lines on my Small Grid Paper).
  3. Set up the two acrylic plates with the three stamps needed to create the flower.
  4. Stamp the inner liner, the Stitched So Sweetly rectangle and envelope with the flower in one color combination.
  5. Clean the stamps and then repeat the process with all the pieces for each card.
  6. Stamp the sentiments in the appropriate color – and cut with the label from Floral Gallery.
  7. Color the Rhinestones with the Stampin’ Blend.
  8. Adhere the DSP and the inner liner to their mats with Liquid Glue.
  9. Adhere the Stitched So Sweetly rectangle to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  10. Adhere the sentiment to the card fronts with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  11. Adhere 3 colored Rhinestones to the front and inner liner.
  12. Adhere the DSP to the envelope flaps and trim the excess with scissors.
  13. Repeat for each color combination you’re making!
  14. DONE!

Stampin’ Up! Vine Design Congratulations with Video Tutorial

Happy Sunday, y’all!  This is a three-day, right?  I realized that yesterday when I saw a commercial for a sale for the three-day weekend.  When you’re retired – Monday is Monday is Monday!!  But – if you’re NOT retired, then I hope that you get tomorrow off!  And get to do something fun like…NOT get up and go to work!

If you were able to join me for my Facebook live yesterday, I appreciate you spending part of your long-weekend with me!  If not, here’s the replay!

The card I did is what is – for me! – a clean card – albeit a layered one!  You know that’s not my wheelhouse but I tried to do something a little different!  Didn’t even add a rhinestone.  Or the tiniest piece of ribbon!  I used the new Vine Design bundle, a couple of awesome die sets and…well – ink and cardstock!  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from this week’s Global Design Project sketch.

And the colors are from the Color Throwdown challenge.

I started with a piece of Basic White that I matted on Granny Apple Green and again on Pacific Point cardstock to create the card front.

Next, I cut a piece of Basic White with a Stitched Rectangle Die, then I ran it back thru the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine with a Stitched With Whimsy die right in the middle!  That made for a really interesting stitched design!

I popped the die cut panel onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Using the rectangular die in the Flowering Vine die set (bundled with the Vine Design stamp set), I cut another piece of Basic White – then used Liquid Glue to adhere it to the popped up panel.

I stamped the Vine Design frame image in Granny Apple Green on Basic White.  In the middle, I stamped the sentiment in Melon Mambo.  Then I cut it with the matching die in the Flowering Vine set.  I popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals and….the card front was done!

Now – to be fair – I was on a ZOOM the Craftroom with some folks – and they helped me to step away from the card.  Leave well enough alone.  Put.  The.  Rhinestones.  DOWN!

It was hard!

On the inside, I stamped the vine image from Vine Design in Granny Apple Green on a Basic White panel. I added some sweet little flowers in Melon Mambo to finish it off!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Granny Apple Green and Pacific Point mat and then into my Thick Basic White card base and the card was done!

My Basic White Medium Envelope got the Vine Design vines and flowers on the front…

…and some Pacific Point paper from the Brights 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap.  Hint:  this design is in the NEW DSP packs – that will come out in the summer in the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog (AND that you can get for FREE when you join Stampin’ Up! during Sale-A-Bration!).

Et Voila!  I really like this Vine Design bundle – it’s always cool when you get sentiments AND a frame that work together – especially when there is ALSO a die to cut it out easy peasy!  Add in the gorgeous detailed dies – in THREE shapes! – and you’re talking a winning combination!

I hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix 

Our little terrorist – Katie – had to go to her doctor on Friday.  She was having trouble in the litter box, if you catch my drift.

She hates – hateshateshates – riding in the car.  If the final destination was a wide open field planted panther-ear deep in catnip, populated by 2-legged mice that even old panthers could catch – with fresh salmon to nibble on whenever she wanted it – she would STILL hatehatehate riding in the car.

Turns out she’s got a bacterial infection – so…a couple of injections and some…wipes.

Huh?  Wipes?  And you’d like me to wipe her….there?  Oh – only once a day.  Well – then THAT’S easy enough.

She looks like she’s REALLY going to be receptive to the wipes.

Not.

Finn?  He be like…wipemewipemewipeme!!

Stampin’ Up! Snailed It Happy Thoughts Slim-Line Card

Good morning and welcome to another work week.  I hope it will be a good one for all of you!

My card today is a Slim-Line one and I don’t usually do them.  The lack of envelopes is a sticky point for me – but…I saw the sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches this week and I wanted to play along.  And it occured to me that….regular business envelopes are slim-line-card-friendly.  And – mine are the security-kind so…no one will be able to “peek” at my card! 😉

With that problem solved…I pulled out my Snailed It bundle – yes, FINALLY got it!!, the coordinating Snail Mail DSP and the Happy Thoughts stamp set to make a sort of thank-you-y sort of congratulations-y card.  Take a look-see:

 

And here’s the challenge from Freshly Made Sketches.

I started with a long piece of Snail Mail DSP that I matted on Real Red for the card front.  Then I looped some Blushing Bride twine from the Snail Mail Twine Combo twice around the panel – securing it on the card front under the decorations.

I used the square die in the Snail Die Set to cut two pieces of Snail Mail DSP – and adhered them both to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I stamped the Snailed It sentiment in Real Red on a piece of Whisper White (Basic White will work, too), cut it with the next-to-smallest Stitched So Sweetly rectangle die and popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

There are two dies in Snail Die Set that cut adorable snails from a couple of the designs in the Snail Mail DSP – so I cut them out!

Using a combination of Liquid Glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals, I adhered the two sweet snails to the card front.

Then I cut three hearts from Real Red – using the Snail Dies again – and adhered them with Liquid Glue.

I tied two pieces of Blushing Bride Snail Mail Twine in a bow and adhered it with a Glue Dot – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped a Happy Thoughts sentiment in Real Red on a Whisper White panel.  In the corner, in Tuxedo Black, I stamped the cute Snailed It mushroom image.  I also stamped that image again on the two DSPs I’d used in the front.  Then I fussy cut some mushrooms and adhered them to the stamped image with Liquid Glue (gotta love a little Paper Piecing!).  I added a couple three Resin Heart Embellishments, too!

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

My white business envelope got a Real Red image from Snailed It on the front…

…and I added some of the Bermuda Bay Snail Mail DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila! Sometimes you just gotta think outside the box, huh?  A business envelope – decorated, of course, cuz…#nonekkidenvelopes!…is a perfectly acceptable mailing vessel!  Which is good – because this Snailed It-strewn card is too cute to hide at home!

The Snail Mail DSP is so much fun – and how perfectly perfect for piecing the mushrooms on the inside!

Happy Thoughts is the perfect set to have in your tool box – with sentiments that are ready for any occasion!

I hope you like!

If you’d like to recreate these cards, all the products and card cuts are listed below!

Stampin’ Up! True Love Art Gallery Congrats with Video Tutorial

Well – happy Sunday, y’all!  Hope the weekend is going well!  We did the usual yesterday – trip to the Post Office (no – not shares….most of them will go out on Monday.  A couple will be waiting for the Love Always Foil replacement that SU is sending – UPS got a little….jiggy!….with my box and there were crumpled corners I didn’t want to send you!). We ALSO hit Walmart to pick a selection of cat foods – of the gourmet variety – to see if we can find one that Her Majesty the Queen-of-the-House will eat.  We got several different kinds cuz…yeah.  What’s acceptable on Tuesday has a low probability of being acceptable on Thursday.  Or…Tuesday evening! 😉

If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video, I appreciate you spending part of your weekend with me.  If not, but you’d like to see the replay on YouTube – here ’tis!

I really love the black-and-white palette in the True Love DSP and on this one I played with the Spotlight Technique.  Then I added a sentiment and a couple images from the pretty Art Gallery set.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from this week’s TGIF Challenge.

And the color palette is from the Global Design Challenge.

I started with a piece of the True Love DSP and cut the largest label die from Stitched So Sweetly right out of the middle.

Then I colored the flowers and leaves on just the cut-out piece with my Petal Pink and Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blends Combos.

I adhered the larger portion of the panel to a Night of Navy mat with Liquid Glue – then used Black Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop the now-colored cut out back in place.

On a piece of Soft Sea Foam, I stamped the Art Gallery sentiment in Night of Navy ink.

I cut the sentiment with the smallest, narrow Stitched Rectangle Die and popped it onto the card front with Black Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Then I added some Champagne Rhinestones and the card front was done!

On the inside, I used my Stamparatus to stamp the pretty Art Gallery floral image in Petal Pink on a Whisper White panel (Basic White would work, too!).

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got an Art Gallery floral on the front in Petal Pink…

…and more of the True Love DSP (colored with the Blends) on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Isn’t the True Love DSP so pretty!  Florals and geometric designs – all in black and white!

The Art Gallery stamp set – even without the bundled Floral Gallery dies – can be counted on for gorgeous multi-step florals and handy sentiments! 🙂

I hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix 

Finny loves our chilly weather.  And – although it’s been rainy and gloomy – there are moments of sunshine.

Which lend themselves well to just chillaxin’ at the end of the barn – watching the ponies, scouting for deer, preparing for the figment invasion!

What?!?

Figment invasions are a real thing.

Google it! 😉

Stampin’ Up! You’re the Way To Goat!

Good morning!  Happy start-of-the-week!  Hope you had a good weekend – ours was a little soggy.  But – I still managed to get some time in with my ponies!  I decided that I’ve been falling down on one of the things I meant to do when I retired and that was ride.

Like..I haven’t.

At all.

🙁

Interestingly, the girls are enjoying the attention.  Until yesterday morning, maybe, when I pulled out the saddles and tacked them up!  THEN the pony-lightbulbs came on and I think they thought…ruh-roh! It’s all fun and games until SOMEone ends up in a SADDLE!! 😂

But – I did take time to make some cards over the weekend and one of them is really the Greatest Of All Time! 😉  I mean, of course, that I used the fun Way to Goat stamp set!  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! World’s Greatest – August 2020 Paper Pumpkin!

Good Saturday, y’all!  Hope you’re ready for a great weekend – I’ll be hanging “virtually” with a BUNCH of Stampin’ Up! Leaders today – and that’s what I got to do yesterday, too!  Awesome info being passed to us – using a platform that is ALMOST as good as being there.

I laid in some extra candy just to make the experience more “real”! 😉

The other day, I got my August Paper Pumpkin in the mail!  It’s called World’s Greatest – and it’s full of….great! 😎…goodies to make 9 cards and coordinating envelopes!

Can you tell that one of the designs is a shaker card?  Well…trust me on this.  It totally is!

And they ALL have foil accents – which is too fun!

Lots of great sentiments for you, too – for the kit projects AND for future cards!

The stamp set – called World’s Greatest is – like ALL Paper Pumpkin stamp sets – exclusive to the kit.

The kit – again like ALL Paper Pumpkin kits! – comes with everything you need to make the projects – as well as the instructions! 🙂

Once everything is together – this is what you’ll have!  And – you KNOW how I feel about envelopes!  #nonekkidenvelopes  🙂

And – you don’t have to stop there – you could make a few “as directed” cards and then go off on your own.  Here’s some ideas for you!  How cute is that pencil?!?

You can check out the “official” Stampin’ Up! video for this month’s kit right here!

So – there’s what August looked like! September’s kit rolls in….FALL!

As the autumn season approaches, prepare to celebrate with the September Paper Pumpkin Kit! There’s so much to love about fall—some love the haunts of Halloween, many love the time to give thanks, and others love the changing colors and cooler temperatures. Whatever you love most about fall, September’s kit has everything you need to celebrate the season your way!

September’s kit is a must-have for those who love to celebrate all things spooky.  But, for those who DON’T enjoy the Halloween haunts, the multi-occasion stamp set – combined with a variety of die-cut and reversible paper pieces – offers many ways to customize your fall crafts!

The Hello Pumpkin Paper Pumpkin Kit includes enough supplies to create projects celebrating Halloween, Thanksgiving, and the autumn season. Make them all the same, or mix ‘n’ match!

Here’s the deets….

  • Kit contains enough supplies to create 20 cracker box treat packages.
  • Each cracker box treat package can be customized to celebrate Halloween, Thanksgiving, the autumn season, or all three!
  • Coordinating Colors: Bumblebee, Basic Black, Cajun Craze, Cinnamon Cider, Mossy Meadow, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, white
  • And – to get THIS kit, you MUST be signed up by 10 Sep.  Sign up on 11 Sep….and you’ll get the OCTOBER kit.  Which is probably awesome – but…it’s not THIS one!

 

So – are you a Paper Pumpkin Subscriber?  If you’re not – but…you’d like to give these fun, all-inclusive kits, a try – you can sign up for a subscription where you are billed monthly for your kit OR you can purchase a prepaid subscription in my online store.  To see more information and to sign up for the monthly subscription, click here. To see the options for prepaid subscriptions in my online store, click here.

Happy crafting, y’all! 🙂

My Fundraiser to Help Iowa – ends in TWO Days!!

On 10 August, the state of Iowa was hit with a derecho storm.  If you have seen any videos of it – it truly looked like a hurricane had hit Iowa.  Uhm – because it totally had – winds in the 100+mph range (that’s Cat 2 territory, folks!)  With no warning to speak of.  To say it was devastating is a bit of an understatement! 🙁

As a result of the storm, at least 43% of the corn and soybeans grown in the state were lost.  Which will be seen in the supermarkets where you and I get our food!  But beyond all that – many in that state are hurting, have lost their homes, schools and businesses and some are still without power (12+ days after the storm and with daytime temps in the 90’s ). Many farm families lost everything and are left with a huge mess to clean up prior to planting next spring.  With so much destruction, they can really use our help!

There’s an organization in Cedar Rapids, IA, called the Iowa Giving Crew, a Cedar Rapids based non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that’s helping to get power restored to those still waiting, is feeding those in need, provides 3 meals a day and is helping with the cleanup.  They’ve got a Facebook page that you can see here with photos and details about the help they’re providing.

In an effort to help, I’ve set a goal of donating $500 to the Iowa Giving Crew.

How can you help me help them??

Place a Stampin’ Up! Order Or Donate Directly!

There are two ways you can help me to reach my goal:

Shop Online: For any orders placed through my online store between now and 31 August 2020 I’ll be donating 20% of your merchandise total to the Iowa Giving Crew.

  • 20% of orders placed through my online store between now and 31 August 2020 will be donated to the Iowa Giving Crew.
  • You’ll earn Peppermint Points and a thank you gift from me with all orders of $50! See my host code details below.
  • Anyone ordering $50+ will be entered to win a new Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine from me to be given away on 1 September 2020! See the details below.

OR….

Make a Donation of $25+ directly to the Iowa Giving Crew:

  • Anyone worldwide is welcome to make a donation to the charity directly via Venmo or PayPal to help (see the details to donate on the Iowa Giving Crew website here).
  • For those in the US, send me a screenshot of the receipt for your donation of $25+ to the Iowa Giving Crew to stamps-n-lingers@comcast.net and you’ll be entered to win the new Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine* to be given away on 1 September! See the details below.
  • If you order $50+ through my Stampin’ Up! store AND donate at least $25 directly to the Iowa Giving Crew, your name will be entered twice to win the machine!

Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine Giveaway

1 September!

As an added bonus, I’ll enter anyone who either orders $50+ through my online store between now and 31 August 2020 OR who makes a direct donation* to the Iowa Giving Crew by 31 August 2020 into a drawing for a brand new Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine!

*Please note: Per Stampin’ Up! rules, I’m only allowed to ship the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine to addresses in the United States or military APO addresses.  Only those with US/APO shipping addresses will be eligible to win the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine. Anyone outside the US is welcome to donate but will not be eligible to win the machine. Orders and/or Donations must be placed by midnight MT on 31 August 2020 to be entered to win the machine.  One winner of the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine will be randomly chosen on Tuesday, 1 September from all of the entries received.

Questions?
Drop me an email at stamps-n-lingers@comcast.net with any questions.  I so appreciate your help and donations to help the good folks in Iowa!! #iowastrong #derecho2020

UPDATE!!  Right now, we’re at $500!  YEAH!! 

Since there are still a few days left … I’ve decided to add a SECOND Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine if we hit $1000 in combined donations by the end of the day on 31 Aug!!

Finn Fan Fix 

Most evenings – Finn does one of two things.

I ask – are you ready for bed or do you want to go outside?

He responds by either heading down the hall to the bedroom or to the back door to go out.

Okay – a lot of his answer depends on where he’s standing and where he’s “pointed” when I ask it! I think he goes out sometimes with no real need! 😉

On the nights he chooses to go outside – I put his blinky light collar on and tell him to hurry and come right back.

When he comes in he makes a beeline for bed.

Usually – I can snag him in time to take the blinky light collar.

Sometimes…I miss…

You gotta be quick – once he heads to bed….he’s like a HF on a laser! 😉

Stampin’ Up! Many Mates Whale Done Cngrats Card

Happy Monday, y’all!  Sorry to start the week with an oxymoron! 😉

I made a fun Congratulations card for you guys today using the Many Mates (yes – a most-awesome sentiment stamp set!), Whale Done and the Whale of a Time DSP.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from the Mojo Monday sketch challenge.

And I used the inspiration photo from this week’s Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge.

I started with a piece of the wunnermus Whale of a Time DSP that I matted on Calypso Coral for the card front.

Next, I embossed a Whisper White panel in the Seabed 3D Embossing Folder, matted it on Calypso Coral, and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

The horizontal element is another piece of the Whale Done DSP, matted on Calypso Coral and adhered with Liquid Glue.

For the sentiment, I cut a third design of the DSP with the largest square Stitched Shapes Die.  In the corner, in Calypso Coral ink, I added a Many Mates sentiment.  Then I popped the square onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I fussy cut three turtles from one of the DSP designs and adhered the two smaller ones to the sentiment square with Liquid Glue (and a Mini Stampin’ Dimensional to support some of the parts hanging over the edge…). The bottom turtle is popped on with Stampin’ Dimensionals!

I used little dabs of Liquid Glue to adhere a few Whale of a Time Sequins and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a second Many Mates sentiment in Calypso Coral to a Whisper White panel.  Then I stamped the turtle from Whale Done across the bottom of the panel in Granny Apple Green, Pacific Point and Blackberry Bliss.  I added some Pool Party bubbles. 🙂

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Calypso Coral mat and into my Pacific Point card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Whale Done turtles and bubbles across the front…

…and a little more of the Whale of a Time DSP on the envelope flap!

Et Voila!  I love the gorgeous images in the Whale of a Time DSP, don’t you? And fussy cutting the turtles really turned out cute, I think.

Also handy that there’s that cute turtle image in the Whale Done stamp set – making it easy to carry the theme into the inside and onto the envelope!  Many Mates lends the perfect sentiments to the whole thing! 🙂

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!

Finn Fan Fix


We got hay the other day.

You knew that cuz I toldja.

Thought you might like a picture or two of the process.

Once we get the hay home – the real hot and dusty work begins.

Thankfully, Wayne does most of the hard stuff – with the help of the big tractor – complete with A/C and a radio!

Get it off the trailer….

\

Drop it on the ground to get it up on end and then carry it to the barn.

Then he stacks it in  – using that giant tractor like a precision instrument!

Finn – in the meantime – is helping me supervise from the golf cart.  Which has NEITHER A/C nor radio!

Tongue deployed.

The end result is…10 bales in the barn…

…And two more in the hay room!

Will last us close to a year!

Life is good!
