Easter

Stampin’ Up! Welcome Easter Chick

‘Sup, y’all!  So – I heard last night on the tv that – apparently…working from home is a GOOD THING!

Duh!  Been doing that for a bunch of years now – and I can attest to the truth of that statement!  Working from home is awesome!

There are some things you have to get used to – and you DO have to be disciplined enough to do the work, but…pajamas.  No makeup.  Bed head.

Like I said – DUH!!

My card for today has nothing whatsoever to do with working from home.  Other than the fact that I was at home while I made it!

It’s another Easter card – I realized today that my count is low.  And…all of a sudden I have to MAIL them instead of hand-delivering them at dinner next Sunday.  🙁  So I pulled out the sweet little Welcome Easter stamp set and some soft Springy-Easter colors.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from this week’s Sunday Stamps challenge.

The color scheme is courtesy of the current Cupcake Inspiration challenge.

Finally – it was handy that the Global Design Challenge was right up my alley this week!

I started with a piece of Petal Pink card stock that was the same size as the front of my card base.  I embossed it in the Basket Weave 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to the front of my Petal Pink card base.

To create the diagonal panel, I used some removable glue dots (it comes on a runner) to tack a piece of Petal Pink Subtles 6″ x 6″ DSP to a So Saffron mat.  I used my Paper Trimmer to cut the diagonal of both pieces at the same time.  Then I used Liquid Glue to adhere the pieces together with the correct spacing.

I used more Liquid Glue to adhere the matted pieces to a Balmy Blue mat to create the card front.

On a piece of Whisper White, I stamped the adorable chick from the Welcome Easter stamp set in Basic Gray ink.  I colored him (her?) with my So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Combo – and a little Dark Mango Melody Blend.  I added some bees in Basic Gray and colored them with my Light So Saffron and Smoky Slate Blends.

Then I cut the chick with a circle Stitched Shapes die.

I cut a Balmy Blue scalloped circle with the Layering Circles Dies.  Then I adhered the art to the scalloped mat and popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I tied a double-length simple bow from Whisper White Solid Baker’s Twine and adhered it to the card front with a Glue Dot.

I stamped the Welcome Easter sentiment in Balmy Blue on Whisper White and cut it with a Stitched Rectangle Die.  Then I added another bee – just cuz they’re so stinkin’ cute!!

I popped it onto the card front – slightly overlapping the art – with Dimensionals, and – that was it for the card front.

On the inside, I stamped a second Welcome Easter sentiment in Balmy Blue on a Whisper White panel.  Then I added the little chick and some bees!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to So Saffron and Balmy Blue mats and into the Petal Pink card base, adhered the card front with more Liquid Glue and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more chick-n-bees….that’s not a thing.  Except it is on my envelope front…

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

Et Voila!  The images in the Welcome Easter stamp set are truly adorable – and the sentiments mean it will work for Easter OR to welcome a new baby!

I hope you like!  And…have all YOUR Easter cards ready to mail or already out the door! 😉

Stampin’ Up! Easter Promise on Pressed Petals with a Video Tutorial!

Good Friday morning, y’all!  It’s day 498 of Social Distancing.

Not really – just sort of feels like it is, doesn’t it??   It’s really starting to get real – another 30 days??  AND – Georgia just followed other states by issuing a Stay Home Order starting today.  Good idea – it’s NECESSARY.  But…I feel pretty confident that NO ONE will believe me when I whine that having my house cleaned (and not by me!)….IS essential!

And now you know.  I AM a first-world-sissy-baby.

C’mon, Mare – you’ve got a house, and food, and electricity.  The dog and cat and horses have food.  Wayne can fix or cobble together anything we need.  ZEWS 1 is on the job.  We’re healthy – and getting to the two-weeks-since-we’ve-been-anywhere-so-surely-that-means-we’re-completely-healthy point.  So…waaaaa.

Sorry.  I’m over it now.

Since along with a house and power comes internet (Thank goodness!) I was able to go live yesterday on my YouTube channel.  If you were able to join me – I appreciate you spending some of your day with me!  If not, but you’d like to see the replay on YouTube…here ’tis!

The card we made is a pretty – and pretty easy!! – Easter card, using the Easter Promise stamp set from the Jan – Jun Mini Catalog, a sweet Ornate Layers Die cut and some Pressed Petals Specialty DSP (2019-2020 Annual Catalog).  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one came from the Mojo Monday challenge…I THINK you can see which sketch I used! 😉

 

And the Easter theme fits right into the Inspire. Create.  Challenge!

I started with some of the pretty sheet music paper from the Pressed Petals Specialty DSP and matted it on So Saffron for the card front.

Next, with the long, narrow die from the new Ornate Layers Die Set, I cut a Purple Posy rectangle.  I ran it thru the die cutting machine in the Scripty 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

Then, I matted a strip of wood-grain Pressed Petals Specialty DSP on So Saffron and adhered it over top with Liquid Glue.

I cut a Very Vanilla rectangle with the next-to-largest Stitched So Sweetly die and stamped the big Easter Promise sentiment in Mossy Meadow.

Next to it – also in Mossy Meadow – I added the floral spray.

I colored the flowers with my Purple Posy Stampin’ Blends Combo and the stems with my Light Mossy Meadow Blend.

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

I used a Glue Dot to adhere a Linen Thread double-loop bow, which I topped with a purple Frosted Flower Embellishment and a Champagne Rhinestone.  And that was it for the card front.

Speaking of Glue Dots, though…

Other side of the room by my photo box.  No.  Clue.  Why.  🤷‍♀️

Anywho….

For the inside, I stamped a second sentiment from Easter Promise in Mossy Meadow on a Very Vanilla panel.  I added the flowers, in Mossy Meadow, again in the corner, coloring them as I’d done on the front.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a So Saffron mat and into my Purple Posy card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got more Easter Promises flowers on the front…

…and more Pressed Petals Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Spring and Easter all rolled up in one!  Don’t let the Easter Promise stamp set – with it’s elegant flowers and simple sentiments – pass you by!  Easter is coming soon – and cards with messages of the hope of Easter are going to be especially welcome this year, I’m thinking!

I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips Happy Easter Happy Spring!

Good morning!  Happy St. Patrick’s Day! 🙂

Do you know that there’s only two more days of winter??  That’s right – on Thursday, Spring will be sprunged – YEAH!!!

And my card today is a celebration of Spring.  And Easter!  Courtesy of the gorgeous Timeless Tulips stamp set and the bundled Tulip Builder Punch!  Take a look-see:

I used the FUSION challenge – both sides, really.  Ish!

I started with a piece of Whisper White that I embossed in the Basket Weave 3D Embossing Folder and matted on Highland Heather for the card front.

I cut a piece of Seaside Spray paper from the 2019-2021 In Color 6″ x 6″ DSP, matted it on Highland Heather and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I stamped a whole bouquet of tulips using the large flower from Timeless Tulips – three in Highland Heather and two in Daffodil Delight.  I also stamped a few leaves in Granny Apple Green and a few stems.

I punched all the flowers and leaves with the Tulip Builder Punch, and did a quick fussy cut of the stems.

The sentiment, from Timeless Tulips, is stamped in Highland Heather on Whisper White and cut with a Rectangle Stitched Die.

I laid all the pieces and parts out…including a little bow tied from some Whisper White 1/4″ Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon…and took my picture…

 

Then I picked up the sentiment…

…and used that picture to adhere everything to the card front with a combination of Liquid Glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals (and a Glue Dot for the bow!).  I ended with the sentiment on top – popped over the bow with Dimensionals.

I added a few Granny Apple Green Glitter Enamel Dots and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a Highland Heather tulip and a Granny Apple Green stem and leaves to a Whisper White panel.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Highland Heather mat and into my Seaside Spray card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another Highland Heather and Granny Apple Green tulip on the front…

…and more of the Seaside Spray DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  The Timeless Tulips bundle – which includes the Tulip Builder Punch – was one of the first things I got from the 2020 Jan-Jun Mini Catalog – and it’s just awesome!

I hope you like – and ASSUME you’ve already got this bundle.  If not…you know what you need to do! 😉

Stampin’ Up! Word Wishes for a Happy Easter

Monday cometh!  Or….is Here-eth, I suppose is more correct!  Hope you had a great weekend and that your week looks to be a good one!

I made y’all an Easter Card today – do you realize that Easter is only 7 weeks off?  That means it’s time to be thinking about Easter cards.

And pondering the age-old question…why would a bunny (who OBTW….CLUCKS!!) lay an egg??  Even a delicious candy egg with a soft and creamy center.  And – why only at EASTER??

It simply defies logic!

Sorry – back to my card!  I used the pretty Easter Promise stamp set and…the Word Wishes Die set (this is in the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog!).  It’s all backed up by the Pleased As Punch DSP (from the 2020 Coordination Product Release).  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one was inspired by this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

I started with a piece of new Pleased As Punch DSP from the 2020 Coordination Product Release) that I matted on Daffodil Delight for the card front.

I cut a smaller piece of Whisper White and, using the pretty image from Easter Promise, stamped the flowers in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.

I colored the image with my Daffodil Delight and Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blend Combo Pack – plus the Dark Mango Melody Blend for the stamen.

I matted the image on Daffodil Delight and used Liquid Glue to adhere it to the card front.

I made the egg-shell using the Dino Days Die set – cutting it from the same Pleased As Punch DSP that I used on the card front.  And – ready to have your mind blown? 🙂

The egg die in the Dino Dies matches the egg stamp image in the Full of Happiness stamp set!

I popped the egg shell over the stems of the flowers with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Using the small narrow die in the Stitched Rectangle Dies set, I cut three rectangles from Vellum card stock.  These I adhered to the egg shell with Glue Dots.

Using the Word Wishes Die Set, I cut the words in Daffodil Delight and used Liquid Glue to adhere them to the Vellum rectangles.

Finally, I used the Dark Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blend to color three Pearl Basic Jewels then I adhered them to the card front.  And…the card front was done!

On the inside, I matted a second piece of Pleased As Punch DSP on Daffodil Delight and used Liquid Glue to adhere it in my Granny Apple Green card base.  I cut another small piece of Whisper White and stamped a second sentiment from Easter Promise in Granny Apple Green.  I stamped and colored the Easter Promise flower in the corner.  Finally, I adhered a Pearl Basic Jewle that I’d colored with my Dark Daffodil Delight Blend.

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another Easter Promise flower on the front…

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

Et voila!  These beautiful flowers from Easter Promise are so bright and cheerful – and harbingers of hope that Spring – and the promise of Easter! – WILL come!  I love the Word Wishes sentiment die set – it works so well with this (and so many other!) stamp set!

Don’t forget to delve into your Annual Catalog goodies to pair up with the Mini catalog and Sale-a-bration products, okay? And, of course, the pretty Pleased As Punch DSP is so darned versatile!  I hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix


Sunday was outside-jobs day.  The one day in a bit where there was no rain AND it got warm enough to be outside without 28 layers of insulated clothes on!

We put hay in the back for the ladies…

Then – cuz this is happening on the kitchen island…

…we realized that it’s time to get busy getting the raised beds ready for planting!

Not only is it time for a dirt refresh – or, more accurately – a Mel’s Mix refresh! – but we’ve decided to add a board and deepen the beds.

I put my best welder on the job!

One down – four to go!

See the difference?

Finn was banned to the carport…

…which he didn’t mind one bit.  He’s not a fan of the loud machines – like the welder.  And he’s not a fan of sparky-fire-y things, either.  Like…the weld!

Which he really REALLY didn’t need to watch!  Trying to treat his weld-burned-eyeballs with potato slices…can’t even imagine!

Also?  They don’t work.

At all.  Guess how I know? 😳😳😳

Stampin’ Up! Botanical Easter Promise

Happy FRIDAY!!  Whoo-hooo!!  Hope you’ve got something fun planned for the weekend?  I’m thinking about heading south a bit to attend a little Thirty-One Gifts soiree.  We’ll see!  And – I’m going to get Wayne to help me blow up the three fitness/yoga balls I bought this week to help me and Finny learn treiball.

What?  You thought I might use fitness/yoga balls for YOGA?  Or…FITNESS??!

ROFL!!!  🙂

So – I got a new stamp set this week – it’s called Easter Promise.  And it’s got some beautiful flower images as well as sentiments.  I paired it up with the pretty paper from the Botanical Prints Product Medley to make today’s card.  Take a look-see:

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

I started with a piece of Pretty Peacock paper from the wonderful Botanical Prints Product Medley and matted it on Daffodil Delight for the card front.

Then I cut a Stitched Rectangle from Daffodil Delight, embossed it in the Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder (this may be my favorite embossing folder EVER!!) and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I wrapped some of the Old Olive 1/4″ Twill Ribbon (from the Botanical Prints Medley) around the card front – securing it in the back with Glue Dots.

For the sentiment, I stamped the pretty flower image from Easter Promise in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a piece of Whisper White.  Using my Daffodil Delight and Old Olive Stampin’ Blend Combos and the Light Mango Melody Blend (for the stamen), I colored the image.

When it was completely dry, I added the big sentiment over it in Versamark Ink.  I sprinkled it with Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat set it with my Heat Tool.

With another die from the Stitched Rectangle set, I cut the sentiment and popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I tied a small bow from the Old Olive Twill Ribbon and adhered it with a Glue Dot.

Finally, I added one of the sweet little bees from the Product Medley with a Glue Dot – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a second sentiment from Easter Promise in Pretty Peacock on a Whisper White panel.  At the bottom, I added the flower image in Tuxedo Black and colored it with my Blends.  Then, cuz I like them a LOT!, I added another Product Medley bee with a Glue Dot!

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Easter Promise flowers on the front…

….and I added more of the Botanical Products DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This card highlights the beauty of a Product Medley – a curated grouping of products that work together and let you and your creativity SOAR! – and the Botanical Prints medley is no exception!  The papers are gorgeous and the accompanying stamp set, dies, labels, die cuts, ribbon and embellishments go perfectly hand-in-hand!

And, of course, Easter Promise brings perfect images and sentiments to celebrate the Miracle of the Season!

I hope you like!

Here it is.

The Lip-Look.

It’s one of my favorite looks from The Man.

He gives it to us often.  Usually when we say something that interests him.  Or that he didn’t understand.

First – the closed mouth to achieve “the lips”… the equivalent of…”say what now?”

And then the slight head-tilt.

The equivalent of…hmm.  That IS an interesting question.  I’ll ponder that for a nano-moment!!

Stampin’ UP! Blooms In Windows 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 Color 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.

Now, our color scheme really called out for the Happiness Blooms suite, and I went smack dab with the subliminal suggestion!  I used the Bloom By Bloom (retiring!) stamp set, and paired it with a simple sentiment from Fabled Friends (carrying over – YEAH!) to create a spring-y Easter card.  Take a look-see:

And, although I feel sure you can figure it out, here’s our color scheme –

I borrowed a layout from this week’s Tuesday Morning Sketches.

I started with some Call Me Clover paper from the Happiness Blooms DSP and double-matted it on Pineapple Punch and Calypso Coral for the card front.

My art is from the Bloom By Bloom set.  I used my Stamparatus so that I could stamp the same image mulitple times.  First I inked the small flower stamp with Pineapple Punch, then I used a Sponge Dauber to add some Calypso Coral around the edges.  I made three of these flowers and cut them out with a Stitched Shapes Framelits square die.

I cut three Pineapple Punch mats with a scalloped Squares Layering Framelits die and adhered them all together to create three matted art pieces.

I used my Stampartatus again to stamp the little sentiment from Fable Friends in Call Me Clover on what would become the middle art square.

I popped each square onto a strip of Calypso Coral card stock with Stampin’ Dimensionals, then adhered the whole thing to the card front with Liquid Glue.

A Happiness Blooms Enamel Dot or three finished off the card front!

On the inside, I added a few more Pineapple Punch and Calypso Coral flowers from the Bloom by Bloom stamp set, plus a couple Call Me Clover leaves, to a Whisper White panel.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Pineapple Punch and Calypso Coral mat, then into my Call Me Clover card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Bloom by Bloom flowers and leaves on the front…

…and the envelope flap got more Happiness Blooms DSP!

Et Voila!  I do love this sweet Bloom by Bloom flower set and the colorfully cheerful Happiness Blooms DSP – and you’re going to want to get them added to your stash before they retire!  Fable Friends is an awesome stamp set – perfect for Spring and Easter cards – and I’m tickled it made it into the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog!  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!

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!

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. 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Hold on to The Cross of Hope for Easter!

Happy Easter, y’all!  Rejoice in the miracle of this day!

So – bad news first. 🙁  I’m not going to be doing a FB Live video tonight – sorry!  I’m cooking today and going to our friends’ for dinner, so…it’s just not in the cards.  And – I suspect y’all have plans of your own! So – we’ll make a date and meet again next Sunday!

The good news is that I have a whole card – with instructions! – to share with you right now! No sneak peek! 🙂

I felt that an Easter card was called for, so I went to my Hold On To Hope bundle – which includes the Cross of Hope Framelits.  I added in some leaves from the wonderful Petals & More Framelits and a pretty little sentiment from You’re Inspiring.  Take a look-see:
