Stampin’ Up! Forever Flourishing Ferns Hello!

Good Monday morning!  Happy Labor Day!  Hope you’re celebrating by NOT laboring! 😉

We’ll head home a little later today – it was a wonderful ceremony – and Matt and Katelyn looked so handsome and beautiful.  It was good that I’d made it to the store for the waterproof mascara. 😢👍

Hard to believe the kids are married.  Guess they’ll always be “the kids”, huh? 🥰🥰

Okay – back to the business at hand!  My card for today is a pretty, feminine one that comes to you from the Forever Fern stamp set, with its bundled and gorgeous Forever Flourishing Dies!  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Beauty Abounds on Dandelions!

Well – good morning and Happy Happy HAWWWMP Day!

These are words that are scaring me a little!  It means…I’ve only got three more days – including TODAY!! – to get my cards all ready – links prepped for next week’s blog hop – and (hopefully!) some work-ahead on blog posts done!  Why?  Cuz – I’m goin’ to the chapel and my friend is gettin’ maaarrried….goin’ to the chapel-which-is-really-an-event-center and my friend is gettin’ maaaarrried!

Yes – it’s here!  Matt and Katelyn are getting married on Sunday at a gorgeous vineyard/event center up north of us!  Going to spend the weekend and probably do some crying.  Note to self: go buy waterproof mascara!!

I’m excited for them – I know it’s going to be gorgeous.  And will post some pictures if they’ll let me!

So.  Card.  Focus.

I pulled an older stamp set from the shelf for today’s card – it’s the Beauty Abounds set with the coordinating Butterfly Beauty die set.  I set the whole thing atop some Flowers for Every Season DSP and a Dandelions 3D-embossed panel.  Take a look-see:

The reason that I gravitated to Beauty Abounds for this one is thanks to the inspiration from the Just Us Girls Wild-Card challenge.

And I pulled my layout from the CAS(E) This Sketch challenge.

I started with a same-size-as-the-front-of-the-card piece of Flowers for Every Season DSP that I adhered to the front of my Early Espresso card base with Liquid Glue.  Hint: be sure that the panel is straight and doesn’t need to be trimmed down at all BEFORE you decorate it. 😉

Don’t ask how I know.  Cuz I know that you know how I know.

You know??

I used a smaller panel of Whisper White and embossed it in one of my FAVORITE embossing folders – the Dandelions 3D Embossing Folder (which you could choose if you take advantage of my Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine Ordering Special!).  I matted that panel on Just Jade and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I stamped the sweet sentiment from Beauty Abounds in Just Jade on Whisper White and cut it with one of the Ornate Frames sentiment label dies – then I popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

From some Rainbow Glimmer Paper, I cut a few large and small butterflies with the Butterfly Beauty dies – the larger die cuts are part of the large detailed die – I used Paper Snips to separate out the two big butterflies that I wanted.

I lightly curled the wings of the larger die cut butterflies and adhered everything with Liquid Glue.

And resisted the urge to add…anything!…and called the card front good!

On the inside, I added another full-size panel of Flowers for Every Season with Liquid Glue.

On a Whisper White panel, I added a second sentiment from Beauty Abounds in Just Jade.  Then I stamped a couple of butterflies in stamped-off-once Magenta Madness ink.  Then I added some of the smaller bokeh-dots image in Mango Melody.  Hint:  my ink pad is needing some re-inking, so the image is quite faint, even at full strength.  Double check yours and be sure it’s light enough – if not, stamp it off once on scrap paper first!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Just Jade mat and onto the inside of the card – and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another couple of butterflies and bokeh dots on the front…

…and more of the Flowers for Every Season DSP on the envelope flap.  Hint:  there IS an up and a down on this paper.  Just sayin’! 😉

Et Voila!  I’ve been so caught up in the Aug – Dec 2020 Mini Catalog that it’s easy to forget about some of the beautiful sets in the “big” catalog!  But…don’t be like me!  Beauty Abounds is just as gorgeous now as it was when it came out – and the coordinating Butterfly Beauty Die set is…stunning!

And don’t forget that you could get the amaze-balls Dandelions 3D Embossing Folder for FREE – plus DOUBLE Peppermints right now during my Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine Ordering Special!!

I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Press On Confidence and Coffee

Happy Happy HAWWWMP Day!!  Did y’all have fun ordering from the new catalog yestedray!?  It’s a darned good one – with so many cool new goodies it’s a little crazy.  How DO they keep coming up with such awesome stamp sets and papers and fun stuff?!?

I don’t know how they do it – but I’m SURE glad that they do.

And that I get a discount, cuzzzzzzz…. I NEED it!

My card today uses a new set for me – the fun Press On stamp set.  If you – or someone you know! – loves coffee, this is a stamp set you need in your tool box.  Take a look-see:

This one was built for the sketch side of the FUSION challenge this week but…I missed the deadline! 🙁

I started with some Very Vanilla card stock and I stamped the coffee cups from the Press On set in Early Espresso ink (seemed appropriate! ).  To make the “reversed” smaller mug – I stamped the image on a piece of acetate (from my old Stamp-A-Ma-Jig) then I quickly pressed the card stock on top.  When I picked it up – I had the reversed image!

I fussy cut the three cups with my Paper Snips.  I also stamped the images again on two different designs from the Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP – and snipped the coffee cup cozies.  These are adhered to “their” mugs with Liquid Glue.

I matted a piece of Very Vanilla on Cajun Craze for the card front, then matted a strip of Mint Macaron paper from Gilded Autumn, also on Cajun Craze.  I adhered the strip to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I used Glue Dots to wrap a length of 3/8″ Embroidered Ribbon around the strip.

On another piece of Very Vanilla, I stamped a sentiment from Press On in Cajun Craze and cut it with a Stitched So Sweetly rectangle die.  I adhered it over the ribbon with Liquid Glue.

I laid out my cups on the card front – tucking the smaller cups under the sentiment.  With all the cups in place, I stamped the “steam” sentiment from Press On in Early Espresso ink.

I adhered the small cups with Liquid Glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals – and the large middle cup with Dimensionals.

At that point, I decided I needed a “lid” – so I stamped the image again in Early Espresso on Very Vanilla and fussy cut just the lid.  I popped it onto the middle cup with Stampin’ Dimensionals – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a second sentiment from Press On in Cajun Craze on a Very Vanilla panel.  Across the bottom I adhered a Cajun Craze-matted stip of Gilded Autumn DSP.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Cajun Craze 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 some Cajun Craze hearts and Early Espresso coffee beans on the front…

…and more of the Gilded Autumn DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Now – Press On might have been another one of those “fly-over” sets for you – but it shouldn’t be!  It’s super cute (I LOVE the sentiment-in-steam image!!) and has some really great sentiments!

I hope you like – and will add this one to your list of gotta-get products!

Don’t forget about Double Peppermint Points – and to redeem your Bonus Days Coupons!! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Whale Done Color Blocking with a Video Tutorial!

Happy Friday, y’all!  Been a busy week here, don’t know how it’s been for you.  Our garden picked this week to decide to BURST at the seams!  I had tomatoes and green beans and chile peppers and tomatillos EVERYWHERE.  On every counter surface and in every rinse/drain container I own.  So, yesterday I decided I’d better get them “processed”.   Let me just say – I can wait a long time to peel and roast another tomatillo, y’all!

Except…I won’t be able to wait – cuz those boogers are just tomatillo-ing their little hearts out! I’ll be peeling/roasting/blending again before I know it!

Stampin’ Up! 2020 Aug-Dec Mini Catalog Love of Leaves Sneak Peek!

Hey, y’all – happy (?) Monday!  I added the question mark just in case you’re not thrilled for the week to get back underway!

My Monday is likely going to be pretty average – with the exception of having to go to the dentist this afternoon for a crown prep. Bleh.

Thank goodness for nitrous, am I right?!?  Sooo much nicer than the suck-it-up-buttercup of military dentistry!  Novocaine?  We got that.  Gas that makes you not care when we GIVE you the shot?

uhm…nope. 😉

So this is much better all the way around!

My card today is a sneak peek of a wunnermus new bundle in the 2020 Aug – Dec Mini Catalog (formerly known as the Holiday Catalog) – I took inspiration from one of the pretty samples in the catalog!  You’re going to be able to get these on 4 August!  It’s the Love of Leaves stamp set which will be bundled with the amaze-balls Stitched Leaves Dies that I set atop the gorgeous new Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP.  Take a look-see:
