Stampin’ Up! Whale of a Time Fun Fold with Video Tutorial!

Good morning and Happy Friday! 🙂  Hope you’ve got a fun weekend planned!  Not really sure what’s on our agenda, to be honest.  Probably something uber-exciting.  Like…I think the Costco Business Center has Wayne’s bottled water on sale…

Yes.  I know.  You’re a little jealous of our Lives-of-the-Rich-and-Famous lifestyle. 😉

I saw a sweet “exploding” box-card that Brigitte Keiling had created with the adorable Zany Zebras stamp set and decided I needed to make one – or two! – of my own and share the how-to with y’all.  I did mine with the wonderful Whale Done bundle and gorgeous Whale of a Time DSP.  Take a look-see:

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 fun “box cards”.  If not – take a gander at it here on YouTube.  They’re really pretty easy – but…kinda hard see how to do it in still photos – moving pictures are worth a gazillion words! 😉

The box is super easy to make – I started with a 6″ x 12″ piece of card stock that I scored at 2″ and 4″ on the short side and at 2″, 4″, 6″, 8″ and 10″ on the long side.

I folded and lightly burnished the score lines, then I used my Stampin’ Trimmer to cut at the dotted lines as shown above.

I cut 16 pieces of the Whale of a Time DSP into 1 7/8″ x 1 7/8″ squares and adhered them to the outside of the box with Liquid Glue.

On the second box – the one in the video – I got a little jiggy with it – and changed up the DSP for the “top” of the folded box – so the recipient see a little “sea-scene” when they lift the lid! 🙂

It made me happy!

On the inside, I used some Brights (Pacific Point) or 2020-2022 In Color (Just Jade) 6″ x 6″ DSP for the squares.

On both boxes – I cut two pieces of Whisper White at 1 7/8″ x 5 5/8″.  Then I stamped the Whale Done sentiments in Pacific Point for both boxes.

I added a variety of sea images from Whale Done – in Calypso Coral, Pretty Peacock, Granny Apple Green, Pool Party, Balmy Blue, Shaded Spruce and Blackberry Bliss.

I cut the Whisper White panels down to 1 7/8″ x 1 7/8″ and adhered them in order with Liquid Glue.

For the “extra” sentiments, I turned to my Many Mates set and stamped a few sentiments on Whisper White in Pretty Peacock, Calypso Coral and Granny Apple Green.  I fussy cut the words and edged them in Pacific Point or Granny Apple Green – then adhered them to the panels with Liquid Glue.

Some Whale of a Time sequins, adhered here and there with dabs of Liquid Glue was all that remained for the card.

For the lid – I cut a 3 5/8″ x 5 5/8″ piece of card stock – in Pacific Point for the sample box and Granny Apple Green for the video box.  I scored and folded them at 3/4″ from each end on the short and long sides.

Then I snipped “tabs” in the end and adhered the lid together with Stampin’ Seal +.

I adhered strips of Whale of a Time DSP around the edge of the lid.  For the top, I stamped a second sentiment from Whale Done in Pretty Peacock on a “scene” piece of Whale of a Time.  Then I adhered the panel to a Granny Apple Green or Pretty Peacock mat and popped it onto the top of the box lid with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the whale in Night of Navy or Pretty Peacock, punched him with the bundled Whale Punch and popped him on with Dimensionals.

A few more Whale of a Time sequins on the lid finished it off!

Et Voila!  This is a “wow” fun-fold for sure!  And the bx is for sure sturdy enough that you could stick a little “green” inside or some candy.  Or…both!

I love the Whale of a Time Suite – way more than I figured I would.  The images and sentiments are cute (and SO fun to just keep stamping and stamping to make my own underwater scenery!) and the paper in Whale of a Time is wonderfully colorful and gorgeous!

I hope you like – and will try one of these fun box-cards for yourself!

And – maybe the Whale Done Bundle will be the one YOU choose when you sign up and join my Team during our amazing Pick a Free Bundle Starter Kit Promotion! 😉

Stampin’ Up! Many Mates Flowers For Every Season!

Happy Monday, y’all!

Well – once my back decided that it could calm down a bit on Sunday, the weekend went pretty well for me – we had a fun Inkin’ Krew meeting yesterday on Zoom – and we even made some cards “together’!  With our team spread out all over the country, it’s totally cool to be able to see everyone and laugh and craft together!!  We have an awesome team – and more folks joining us all the time – especially with the amazing joining special we’ve got going right now!

My card today is not one of the ones we worked on in our meeting – but you’ll get to see those in the next few days.  Today, I have a quick and super easy card for you to make with the beautiful Flowers For Every Season Memories & More card pack and…yes, again!…the Many Mates stamp set.  Take a look-see:

I borrowed the layout for this one from this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

I started with a piece of Pretty Peacock cardstock that I embossed in the new Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder and matted on Bumble Bee for the card front.

I pulled two of the smaller cards from the Flowers For Every Season Memories & More Card Pack and cut them down a bit.  Then I matted them on Bumble Bee card stock.

I adhered the first to the card front with Liquid Glue.

Using Glue Dots, I adhered a length of Bumble Bee 1/4″ 2020-2022 In Color RIbbon.

On the second panel – the one with the frame – I stamped a sentiment from Many Mates in Pretty Peacock.  Then I popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a Bumble Bee 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dot and the card front was done.

On the inside, I stamped a second Many Mates sentiment in Pretty Peacock on a Whisper White Panel.  Across the bottom of the panel, I adhered a Bumble Bee-matted strip of Flowers For Every Season DSP.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Bumble Bee mat and into my Just Jade card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got one of the flower stickers from the Flowers For Every Season Memories & More Card Pack on the front…

…and more Flowers For Every Season DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I do so love this Flowers For Every Season Memories & More Card Pack – it’s so handy and makes quick and easy cards so…quick and easy.  And beautiful!!

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!

House guard….POST!

On full alert.

I shall not eat while at my post.

I shall alert my family if there is a deer.  Or a mud dauber.  Or a leaf.

I shall stay ever vigilant.

The first, the last – yes, the very final defense….

I will not sleep…

Well – maybe just rest my chin for a minute….

Stampin’ Up! Many Mates Sneak Peek with Video Tutorial for The Paper Players

Hey y’all – it’s Sunday, which means I’ve got another fun challenge for you from the Paper Players – it’s a sketch challenge from our lovely LeAnne this week and it’ll for sure jump-start your creative mojo!  I hope you’ll come and play along.  🙂

If you were able to join me yesterday for my Facebook Live video, I appreciate you spending some of your weekend with me!  If you weren’t able to watch the live version, but you’d like to see the replay on YouTube…here ’tis!

I pulled out the new Many Mates stamp set, with it’s bundled Many Medallions Die set (coming on 3 June!), plus a little of the new Forever Greenery DSP for this one!  And – some new Brass Foil became the focal point.  Take a look-see:

And here’s this week’s Paper Players theme challenge!  Hope you’ll join the fun and show us your projects!  I can’t wait to see what you create!  🙂

I started with a piece of Just Jade card stock – one of the wunnermus new 2020-2022 In Colors! – and embossed it in the new Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder.  Then I cut it to be the same size as the front of my Just Jade card base and adhered it with Liquid Glue.

Next up is a piece of Forever Greenery DSP, double matted on Pretty Peacock and Melon Mambo – and adhered to the card front with Liquid Glue.

Using the big, bold die in the Many Medallions Die Set, I cut a Brass Foil piece.  Then I used my Paper Snips to trim the panel down to fit and adhered it with Liquid Glue.

I stamped the Many Mates sentiment in Melon Mambo on a strip of Whisper White, then used the new Lovely Labels Pick a Punch (new in the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog) to cut each end.

I tied a simple bow from a length of 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim and adhered it with a Glue Dot.  Then I popped the sentiment over the top with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

A couple of Just Jade dots from the 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dots pack finished off the card front!

On the inside, I added a second sentiment from Many Mates in Melon Mambo to a Whisper White panel.  I added a Pretty Peacok-matted strip of Forever Greenery DSP across the bottom – and some of the trimmed Brass Foil die cut, as well.  A single Just Jade Enamel dot finished it off.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Pretty Peacock and a Melon Mambo mat and then into the Just Jade card base and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got a few words from Many Mates in Melon Mambo on the front…

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

Et Voila!  This Many Mates set is absolutely filled with fun and useful sentiments – and the bundled Many Medallions offers some great textural accents for your projects!

I hope you like – and are adding this one to your gotta-have-it list!

And I can help you get this stamp set – either now as a new demonstrator (yes, you can select pre-order goodies for your Starter Kit!!) or after 3 June (consider an Online Host Club!!) or my Sentiments Rule Special Bundle!

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

Wayne put a stick on the dog the other day.

Wait – that might have been me.

I put a stick on the dog the other day.

 

I think I said something like – hey Finny, wanna get this stick?

And he indicated he did not by just ignoring me completely.

So – I put the stick on him.

Figured he’d shake it off real quick.

I figured wrong.

I dunno – maybe he wants to be one of those wagon-pulling dogs?

Or…could just be that…he’s a smidge goofy!

But – makes for cute pictures, huh??

Stampin’ Up! Many Mates Video Tutorial Sneak Peek!

Happy Saturday, y’all!  And it’s the Saturday of a Three-Day Weekend to celebrate Memorial Day!  As you go about your socially distanced activities this weekend, grilling and playing in the sun, I’d ask you to take a moment to say thank you to those who gave all so that we could enjoy the freedoms we love so much!  Our freedom came at the ultimate cost for so many.  Thank you!

Part of my weekend will be spent (I hope!) with you (virtually!) tonight at 7pm Eastern over on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page.  We’re going to play with a sentiment-centric bundle called Many Mates.  With a few other goodies thrown in.  Take a sneaky peek!

Finn Fan Fix


I’ve had a few requests for an update on the progress of our garden.

So – Finny (my docent) and I, went out with the camera.

Our first stop is the Squash department!  On the left – a baby Spaghetti Squash.  On the right – some yellow squash that are doing great!  We’ve had trouble in the past with blossom-end rot.  But..so far so good this year! 🙂

My French Algarve pole beans are doing their thing – and we’ve got tons of little flowers (baby beans, do-do-do-do-doo).  Underneath – my Buttercrunch that I started from seed (have to keep saying that cuz I can’t believe how good everything did this year!).  I’ve also got sweet onions in that bed – that we started from root cuttings off onions I cooked with.  Yes.  I AM channeling Laura Ingalls… 😉

Moving into the tomato area…

The two big plants in the corners are the tomatillos – going great guns.

The two small plants are basil.

Except…they’re not.  Somehow in the seed starting process, things went astray, awry and maybe even avast.  They are most definitely tomatoes.  I ASSUME they’re Argo paste tomatoes, but…I guess we’ll see!

I kept looking and waiting for them to look like basil – rubbing the leaves and sniffing….nope.  NOT basil! LOL

The Sweethearts are doing well – they’re such a solid performer!  This is a grape tomato and they’re sweet as sugar!

My Ancho Magnificos are really flourishing.  Not as fast as Wayne thinks they should – he keeps worrying that our soil isn’t as good as it “was last year”.  Cuz…we don’t have a thousand peppers by mid-May! 😉  But…we’ve got a bevy of flowers (aka baby peppers, do-do-do-do-dooo).

Finally, into Finn’s favorite part of the garden (cuz…he can reach these!).

We’ve got lavender… with some flowers around the edge…

And the blueberries and raspberries….

You DO have to keep a close eye on the fruit – those rascally squirrels are known berrytarians!

 

Last, but not least, Finn’s favorite – the Pink Peace!!

No more pictures of turnips, mustards and collards…we had two big harvests…

And some gorgeous radishes!

So – there you have it!  The garden is doing its thing! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers Sneak Peek 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 a sketch challenge – 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!

So – yesterday afternoon (okay – it was more like dinner time, cuz I’d been playing with my new goodies and doing some craft room organzing!) the power went out.  Right in the middle of making my card.

It wasn’t looking good, my peeps!

But – I pushed on thru – and created a card for you with a new bundle that I’ve been itching to get my hands on since I first saw it.  The Celebrate Sunflowers bundle!  Take a look-see:

And here’s our sketch!

You guys should have seen me – check it out…

I’m not going to say I’m dedicated but…c’mon!  Battery operated lantern!?! 😉  I figure this is how Laura Ingalls Wilder’s craft room would have looked if she’d been Blogging on the Prairie! 😉

So – I started with a piece of Bumble Bee paper in the brand new World of Good Specialty DSP (available on 3 Jun!) that I embossed in the wonderful – also coming on 3 Jun – Old World Paper 3D Embossing Folder (makes it look like I wadded it up and smoothed it out!) and matted on Cinnamon Cider card stock.

I cut a Very Vanilla Stitched Rectangle Die and embossed it in the Scripty 3D Embossing Folder.  Then I adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I used some Glue Dots to adhere the brand-spanking-new Antiqued Corners & Slides to three of the corners.  Y’all – I don’t have the words to express how much I LOVE these little embellishments!!

For the flower and leaves, I first stamped the big Celebrate Sunflower flower in Crushed Curry on Very Vanilla – and cut it with the solid die in the Sunshine Dies.  I used the detailed flower die to cut a Crushed Curry flower and adhered it with Liquid Glue.

I stamped two large leaves in Mossy Meadow on Very Vanilla and painted them with my Clear Wink of Stella – pulling the ink into the leaf.  I cut two detailed leaves from Mossy Meadow and adhered them with Liquid Glue.  I cut some solid leaves from Cinnamon Cider and Mossy Meadow.

The sentiment, from Celebrate Sunshine, is stamped in Mossy Meadow on Very Vanilla.  I used a Stitched Rectangle Die – moving it to create a slightly longer die to accommodate the length of the sentiment.

Then it was time to build my collage and take my picture.

By…lantern-light! 🙂

I adhered the leaves with Liquid Glue.  Then I added a length of 5/8″ Burlap Ribbon (Boy – I am REALLY going to miss this! 🙁 ).  Then I popped the sunflower on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  The sentiment is adhered with Dimensionals and Liquid Glue

The finishing touch was a Bumble Bee enamel dot from the new 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dots.

On the inside, I added a second sentiment from Celebrate Sunshine in Mossy Meadow to a Very Vanilla panel. In the corner, using the Stamparatus and the Marker-to-Rubber inking technique to color and stamp the small flower from the set in Crushed Curry and Mossy Meadow. I used my Clear Wink of Stella and Light Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blend – then added some little Soft Suede dots with my Stampin’ Write Marker.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Cinnamon Cider 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 another small sunflower on the front…

…and more of the World of Good Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I absolutely love love LOVE this Celebrate Sunflowers bundle, don’t you?  And with the addition of some wonderful goodies from the World of Good Suite – like the Old World Paper 3D Embossing Folder, World of Good Specialty DSP and some Antiqued Corners & Slides and….we’ve got a winner!!  Of course, you can get the Scripty 3D Folder and the Burlap Ribbon (while it lasts!) right now – the rest?  Got to wait until 3 June!  I hope you like!

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

Stampin’ Up! Sending You Pleased as Punch Timeless Tulips

Well.  It’s Monday.  More to the point – are you sitting down!?  It’s the 30th of March.  Which makes tomorrow the 31st.

Which ALSO means that tomorrow is the LAST DAY of Sale-A-Bration! 🙁

And – it’s the last day that the Coordination Products will be available! 🙁 🙁

So – if you’re still wanting ANYTHING – SAB or Coordinating Product – you need to get busy right now!

And if you’ve been on the fence about joining the Stampin’ Up! family – now is a great time to pick a side – cuz you get SO much more bang for your Starter-Kit-Buck during Sale-A-Bration!!  Give me a holler if you’d like more info….

I decided to make a little card for you today that showcases a couple of fun products – one from the Coordinating Products (the Pleased as Punch DSP) and the other from SAB (the Sending Thoughts stamp set).  And I added in a little Timeless Tulip bundle, too.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from the CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge

And the Spring-y color palette is from the Color Throwdown!

I’ve also got all the elements from the As You See It challenge!

I started with a piece of Petal Pink paper from the Pleased As Punch DSP (a Coordinating Product) that I matted on Highland Heather for the card front.  I wrapped a length of 3/8″ Purple Tricolor Ribbon around the panel, securing it in the back with Glue Dots.

I used the Tulip Builder Punch to punch out two pink and one purple tulip from the Pleased As Punch DSP (did you know there’s also paper that coordinates with the Umbrella Builder, the Small Bloom Punch AND the Heart Punch Pack?!?).  I adhered the two purple tulips to the card front with Liquid Glue.

On a piece of Whisper White, I stamped the Sending You Thoughts (free with a $50 purchase during SAB – so…thru tomorrow – then it’s GONE!) sentiment in Highland Heather.  Then I cut it with a Rectangle Stitched Die and adhered it to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I tied a bow with the Tricolor Ribbon and adhered it with a Glue Dot.

I used two double-stacks of Stampin’ Dimensionals to add the pink tulip over the bow.

A few Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels finished off the card front!

On the inside, I added a second Sending You Thoughts sentiment in Highland Heather to a Whisper White panel.  Over the top, I stamped a small tulip from the Timeless Tulip stamp set in Petal Pink.  Then I tucked a Champage Rhinestone in to finish it off!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Highland Heather mat, then 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 a couple more Petal Pink tulips on the front…

…and some more of the Pleased As Punch DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Tulips just shout SPRING from the top of their lungs (or – they would if they HAD lungs!).  I love the Timeless Tulips bundle – and it’s so cool that you can punch out all sorts of pretty tulips from the Pleased As Punch DSP!!

PLEASED AS PUNCH DESIGNER SERIES PAPER

And Sending Thoughts is one of my favorite sentiment sets ever – and it’s made even better by being FREE.  Well – for today and tomorrow.  THEN it’ll be gone!  So – get these goodies quick like a bunny!

I hope you like and – if you want to recreate this card – all the Stampin’ Up! products you need are listed down below along with the card cuts!

Stampin’ Up! Label Me Bold Ornate Style Video Tutorial for The Paper Players

Hey y’all – it’s Sunday, which means I’ve got another fun challenge for you from the Paper Players – it’s a Clean-and-Simple Challenge from Joanne this week to help jump-start your creative mojo!  I hope you’ll come and play along.  🙂

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

I pulled out the fun and simple (to me!) Label Me Bold stamp set from the 2020 Jan – Jun Mini Catalog and used its sentiments to work with the image-only Ornate Style stamp set.  Which YOU will be able to get on 1 Apr!  Take a look-see:

I know, I know – I keep using that new daisy image.  I can’t help it very much – I just love it!! And so will you when you get your hands on it! 😉

And here’s this week’s Paper Players CAS challenge!  Join the fun and show us your projects!  I can’t wait to see what you create!  🙂

And the layout for this one is from this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

I started with a piece of Whisper White cardstock that I embossed in the Basket Weave 3D Embossing Folder and matted on Granny Apple Green cardstock to make the card front.

To make the little strip element of the sketch, I used some SNAIL to adhere a length of Granny Apple Green 1/2″ Textured Weave Ribbon.

The DSP strip is a piece of Daffodil Delight Brights 6″ x 6″ DSP, also matted on Granny Apple Green and adhered with Liquid Glue.

The art is the fantastic Ornate Style daisy, stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, on Whisper White and cut out with a rectangle Stitched So Sweetly die – how MUCH do you love this die set?!?

I used watercolor pencils from the Watercolor Pencils Assortment 2, in Granny Apple Green for the leaves.  Then the flower itself is colored in Daffodil Delight and Calypso Coral (Assortment 1) with a little Crushed Curry (Assortment 2) in the middle.

Then I used Liquid Glue on the bottom half and Dimensionals on the top half to adhere it to the card front.

On a small piece of Whisper White, I stamped the Label Me Bold sentiment in Granny Apple Green and gave it a quick fussy cut.  Then I popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

A Granny Apple Green Glitter Enamel Dot finished off the card front.

On the inside, I stamped another sentiment from Label Me Bold in Granny Apple Green on a Whisper White panel.  Next to it I added another pretty little Ornate Style daisy!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Granny Apple Green mat and into my Daffodil Delight card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another Ornate Style daisy on the front…

…and a little more Daffodil Delight Brights 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Label Me Bold is…for me…a flyover stamp set.  Easily overlooked.  BUT – it’s got a bunch of sentiment options for different occasions presented in a clean-and-simple style – so…don’t flyover it – get it before the end of the catalog!  And – I know you’re excited for Ornate Style and it’s bundled Ornate Layers Dies.

Be looking for those in the Ornate Garden Suite on 1 April.  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!

Now – before you reach for your ink and papers, check out what our amazing team has created to inspire you this week:

Nuthin’ like a good game of grab-wiggle-butt with your dad when the rain FINALLY stops!!

Somebody PLEASE GET THE DOG!!

Yes – he loves the Get The Dog game.  It’s ALMOST as good as the Who Can Keep the Stick Away from the Parents Game.  Or the ever popular – Zoom-Skid-Slam.  Which frequently involves the bowling over of the aforementioned parents cuz braking is HARD!!

All good games – YOU should try them!

Stampin’ Up! Ornate Layers Sneak Peek with Daisy Lane

Good morning, y’all!  It’s 7am.  Sort of.  More like 6am.  Or is it?

I LOVE Daylight Savings Time.  I hope and wish for this to be THE time year-round.  Long evenings with that perfect summer light.  I wait and anticipate the return of DST every winter!  I do, however, hate changing back and forth.

In fact, apparently I hate it so much that for the first time…ever?!? – I totally spaced changing my clocks on Saturday night.  I ALWAYS change them before I go to bed.  Especially for the Spring forward time change.

Not this year.  Got up on Sunday at my normal time of 430 (thank you, Katy) – and made my coffee, fed the braticus, let the dog out and back in.   Sat down in my chair with my coffee and turned on the tv.  And saw the clock on the DVR.  My confusion was….extreme.  HOW did it take me an entire HOUR to do the things that take me 15 minutes EVERY SINGLE DAY!?

And then…I realized what I’d done.  Or…hadn’t done.  And BOOM.  Just like that – I lost an hour of the day!

Worst.  Feeling.  Ever. 🙁

I was behind the whole rest of the day.

But – I did finally get a card made for y’all!  Yeah!!  And – it’s a combination of some old and some new.  Daisy Lane, with both Daisy Punches, plays well with the Ornate Layers Dies and some Ornate Garden Specialty DSP (remember these are coming in the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog – and you’re going to get your hands on them early on 1 April!).  Take a look-see:

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

And – I liked it for the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge, too!

I started with some of the new Ornate Garden Specialty DSP that I matted on Mint Macaron for the card front.

The Whisper White panel is cut using one of the dies in the new Ornate Layers Die set.  See it there?  Right in the middle of the bottom set.  That’s the one I used!

I ran it thru the die cutting machine three times to create the three shapes in the sketch.

Then I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Mint Macaron mat and onto the card front.

Using the leaves in the Nature’s Thoughts die set from the new Coordination Product Release, I cut three “feathers” – two in Old Olive and one in Mint Macaron.

On a piece of Whisper White, I stamped the large daisy from the Daisy Lane set in stamped-off-once Terracotta Tile and cut it with the Daisy Punch.  I stamped two of the small daisy in stamped-off-TWICE Terracotta Tile – and cut them with the Medium Daisy Punch.

Using my Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends Combo Pack, I colored the daisies and then adhered them together with Liquid Glue.

On another piece of Whisper White, I stamped a sentiment from Daisy Lane in Old Olive.  Then I cut it with the next-to-smallest rectangle die in the Stitched So Sweetly Die set.

I laid out the elements on my card front until it said “yep – THERE it is” – and took a picture.

To make it easier to put it all together, I picked up my daisy and sentiment and adhered them together with Liquid Glue.

Then I put all the pieces together onto the card front.  I used Liquid Glue to adhere the Old Olive feathers….errr leaves.  Then some Glue Dots for a length of Mint Macaron twine from the Nature’s Twine pack.  Then I added the Mint Macaron leaf/feather with a couple of Dimensionals.

The final piece was to add the flower/sentiment combination element with some Dimensionals.

I used a few of the new Gilded Gems (from the Ornate Garden Suite) – a large one in the middle of the flower and several more here and there – and the card front was done!

Oh – did you see that?  It’s a cool little doohickey for holding up cards!  We all got one at the Spring STAMPede event on Saturday!

3-D Printing.  Cool, huh?? Thanks, Sandra Hernandez!! 🙂

Anywho…on the inside, I added a second sentiment from Daisy Lane in Old Olive on a Whisper White panel.  Across the bottom I added a strip of Mint Macaron card stock and another strip of the Ornate Garden Specialty DSP.  Then I added another Gilded Gem.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Mint Macaron 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 another daisy on the front – in full-strength Terracotta Tile…

…and more of the Ornate Garden Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Daisy Lane is a perfect harbinger of SPRING!!  And – just right for the first real day of DST!  I love that we can punch TWO sizes of the pretty daisies.  And it’s really looking like the elements in the Ornate Garden Suite will not only work together perfectly but will ALSO work well with so many of our much-loved stamp sets and goodies!  I hope you like!

Want the Ornate Garden Suite elements RIGHT NOW??  Well – folks who join Stampin’ Up! right now can select Ornate Garden to help fill your Starter Kit!  And – on top of your Starter Kit –  you’ll ALSO get the new Mini Cutter, DSP Sampler Pack and a FREE Stamp Set of your choice.  All with FREE SHIPPING!  Whoo-hoo!  Give me a holler and let me get you set up – Sale-A-Bration (and all the “extras”!) ends on 31 March.

Finn Fan Fix


Sometimes Finny and I have some pretty good conversations.

I’m pretty funny – at least….that’s what HE tells me!

I’ll tell a good one and he just laughs and laughs!!

He also thinks I’m danged smart.

And since he’s awfully smart, too, we frequently have some pretty good discussions about a lot of deep subjects.

Like….what if Luke had run into Kirk instead of ObiWan?  Or…what if Tony Stark had been bitten by a radioactive spider and Peter Parker was trapped in the cave??

Yeah.  THAT level of deep.

Stampin’ Up! Label Me a Bold Bee for The Paper Players

I’ve got another fun challenge for you from the Paper Players – it’s a sketch challenge to help jump-start your creative mojo this week!  I hope you’ll come and play along.  🙂

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

I made two different cards this time around – with the Label Me Bold stamp set and some Golden Honey Specialty DSP as the main ingredients for both versions.  Take a look-see:

And here’s this week’s Paper Players theme challenge!  Join the fun and show us your projects!  I can’t wait to see what you create!  🙂

Although I didn’t use the exact colors, I pulled my color scheme from this week’s CAS Colours & Sketches challenge.

 

And the paper choice comes from the TGIF Product Spotlight Challenge.

And – I also think these have a Masculine Twist, so…they fit right in with the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.

Thanks to some Stampin’ Blends and the gorgeous Golden Honey Specialty DSP – these cards are easy-peasy!

I started with some black and white striped DSP and colored the white stripes with my Light Pumpkin Pie and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends.  The middle few stripes are colored with the Dark Daffodil Delight Blend.  TIP:  use long, straight strokes of the brush tip on your Blends.  The color will look better – regardless of which side you use!

I adhered the colored paper to a Basic Black mat for the card front.

For the art, panel – I used the splotch image from the Label Me Bold stamp set – and stamped it three times – the top is stamped-off-once Pumpkin Pie, then stamped-off-once Daffodil Delight.  I finished up with stamped-off-once Old Olive.

Using the stars image in the set, I stamped it three times in Versamark Ink and then sprinkled them with Shimmer Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  I heat set the powder with my Heat Tool.  Then I matted the panel on Basic Black.

I stuck a couple of Glue Dots in the middle of the panel and wound a length of black twine from the Country Club Baker’s Twine Combo pack in a figure-eight “bow”.  Then I popped the panel onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

With a star die in the Stitched Stars Die set, I cut a Vellum cardstock star.

For the sentiment, I stamped two images from Label My Bold in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Whisper White.  I cut them both with a narrow die from the Stitched Rectangle Die set.  I had to manipulate it a little to make it small enough for the sentiment (check it out on the video).

I lined everything up on the card and then adhered the two sentiments to the Vellum star with Liquid Glue.

I added some Dimensionals under the sentiments and then popped the whole thing over my “bow” – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped the splotch image again in Old Olive – this time I stamped it off on scrap paper TWICE before adding it to my Whisper White panel.  Over that I added another Label Me Bold sentiment in Tuxedo Black.  I stamped some Tuxedo Black stars next to the sentiment.

 

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got a stamped-off-once Old Olive splotch – and some Tuxedo Black stars on the front…

…and more colored Golden Honey Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  The Label Me Bold stamp set is what I call a “fly-over” set – it’s easy to miss it – or to dismiss it!  Heck – I almost did!  But – I love the simplicity of the sentiments and the ability to use them with various dies – or even quickly fussy cut them.  Adding color here and there is easy with the other grpahic images in the set.  And – how happy are you that the Golden Honey Specialty DSP is BACK IN STOCK – and get-able for FREE with a $50 purchase during Sale-A-bration!

I hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix


The other day, while Wayne and I were eating lunch in the kitchen – as is his usual – Finn ate his breakfast.

Yes.  He saves his breakfast to eat while we’re eating our lunch.  He’s THAT dog.

Anyway – once he was done – he hurried into the living room.

A moment later – here he came.  With his essentially-dead-only-half-of-him-remains bear.

He loves that bear.

He entertained himself for a couple of minutes and then decided we were probably done eating and probably really wanted to play.

Dad?

Mom?

Since he had completely misjudged our level of “doneness” with lunch, he was….disappointed.

Bummer, dude. 🙁

So – today’s FFF is a blatant brag on my oh-so-smart-and-obedient boy. Straight up proud-mama stuff. 😉

A little backstory.  When I clean the stalls each morning – I can usually go three days before I have to run the manure spreader around the pasture – in the winter!!  On Wednesday, even though the weather was pretty okay at that moment (ie: not raining cats and dogs) – I decided to NOT run it.  It was only day 2!

Of course – I KNEW it would be pouring the aforementioned cats-and-dogs on Thursday.  But…I still…didn’t.

On Thursday – as expected – I HAD to run the manure spreader.  And – the dogs – the cats – all coming down.

I just saw a cat AND a dog come down, mom!!

Now, normally the Man goes with me so that he can galloomph around and sniffle and snuffle and splash in every mud puddle he can find.

But – I decided I didn’t want him to be a soaking wet mess. So….in a fit of “maybe I’ll get lucky and he’ll stay put”…I sent him to his mat at the end of the aisle.

And then I started the four-wheeler and hooked up the spreader.

And – he stayed on the mat! 🙂

I headed out and did my thing – glancing back at the barn every three seconds to see if he was standing at the gate in the pouring down cats-and-dogs.

But…when I pulled back into the barn…

…there he was.  Right.  Where.  I.  Told him to stay! 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂

Folks – that was a long-distance, out-of-sight, with a HUGE attraction (the four wheeler) down/stay!

I mean…SERIOUS props to my wiggle-butt!!

I gave him an extra peppermint!  He TOTALLY earned that!

Now – it turns out that ‘bedience is EXHAUSTING!!

Next picture is gratuitous cuteness overload!

You’re welcome! 😉

Smart and cute all wrapped up in one furry package?  I am a lucky mom!
