Stampin’ Up! Christmas Whimsy Kit Peek!

Good morning and…let me be the first to wish you a very Happy HAWWWMP DAY!!!  Yes!  It’s Wednesday – and….THAT means that I only have two sleeps before I head to the airport to pick up Amy and Karen and then head up to the north GA mountains for our Inkin’ Krew Retreat!  I am so excited to see everyone – and I’ve got a couple of ladies who are in my Crittters-N-Creatin’ Krew Team that I’ve never met in person!  Plenty of time on Zoom – but…this’ll be the first time we’re in the same spot!  It’s going to be a blast!  I’ll share pics as I’m able thru the weekend!

Stampin’ Up! recently released a brand new All-Inclusive Kit called Christmas Whimsy.  I ordered it first jump out the gate and when it came….I dove in!  Remember – this is the one I think looks like it come straight outta Who-Ville!!

When I opened it up I found everything – and I do mean….EVERYTHING!…I needed to make eight fun Christmas cards!

THAT is the neat and tidy image from Stampin’ Up!  Here’s my hot mess!

Great job, Mare! 🤦‍♀️

But – I popped all the die cut pieces, folded the two designs of card bases and opened up the instructions.  I decided that at least for this first one, I’d do them exactly as the instructions said.

The instruction sheet is cool – they used pictures to let you know what to do and in what order – and (unlike some picture directions – you know the ones I mean!) – THESE actually WORK!

I mean – they even tell you how many stars or snowflakes to use and where to put the Dimensionals! 👍👍👍

I used the enclosed Night of Navy Ink Spot and the exclusive stamp set to stamp snowflakes and stars on the card bases – and stamp the sentiments.  This is where I DID depart a little – I’m not a huge “Season’s Greetings”  fan so I did them all with Merry Christmas.  But…you can do whichever you prefer – they both fit on the labels perfectly (thanks, Stampin’ Up!).

 

There’s a roll of Gold Trim to use on each design – love the tag “tied” on (in truth it’s got a little Glue Dot and the tag itself is popped on with a couple of dimensionals!).   And there are pretty blue foil snowflakes and stars adhesive-backed sequins to add, too!

The second design also gets a little gold foil star “sticker” added – only hard part here is making sure to get the ladder onto the card front straight so that it doesn’t look like someone is fixin’ to end up in the ER!

There’s even an “inside” sentiment that I used – and added some Night of Navy stamped stars.

I guess Stampin’ Up! has heard me say #nonekkidenvelopes cuz they included some beautiful envelopes with Gold Foil accents.

But…I added some stars to the front, too.  Cuz….I could! 😉

Et Voila!  In the blink of an eye I had eight fun full-sized cards – with insides stamped and ready – and decorated envelopes – all ready to get signed, stamped and mailed!  No cutting (except for the Gold Trim!) required – and the easy instructions make this a PERFECT project for new stampers or kids or….pretty much anyone who needs really cute Christmas cards!  It would be a GREAT activity to do together with family and friends – order a few kits and get to creating! 🙂

I hope you like!

And – this isn’t the ONLY kit that we’ve got available right now!  Check them all out – we’ve got stamping kits and even NON-Stamping kits for you to choose from.  Stop by the online store Kits Collection to pick up your kits!  Don’t forget that the kits are only available while supplies last, so order quick to make sure that you get yours…and pick up some free Sale-a-bration goodies if your order reaches $50!

Stampin’ Up! Daisy Garden Through it Together In Color!

Back home!  Pretty sure it’s Sunday.  Maybe??  Yep – jet lagged as all get out and I keep looking for the ocean outside my windows.

You MAY be surprised to learn that no matter WHICH window I look out – there is NO ocean.  At all.

Also?  No lazy river.  No gorgeous mountains.  Nope.  Just my pond! 🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️

Well – there are advantages to being home – like my fur-kid and my ponies!  All who were as happy to see me as I was to see them!

Now – my card today is actually…FIVE cards!  All the same design using the Daisy Garden background stamp set and the Through It Together stamp set.  I did one in all five 2021-2023 In Colors.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Hand-Penned Flowers Memories & More Sneak Peek!

Happy Happy Hawwwmp Day!  We’re inching closer to the weekend – closer to the end of the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog AND closer and closer to the NEW 2021-2022 Annual Catalog going live!  Whoo-hoo!! While that’s exciting – be sure to check the Last Chance section in the Online Store – don’t miss out on your favorite retiring goodies! 🙂

Today is all about the new catalog!  I was finally able to pick up the Hand-Penned Memories & More Cards & Envelopes, to go with the Hand-Penned Memories & More Card Pack that I already had.  I added some goodness from the new Hand-Penned Petals stamp set.  Take a look-see:

The layout was loosely inspired by the sketch over at As You See It.

I started with one of the gorgeous – already-decorated-for-you! – Hand-Penned Memories & More Cards & Envelopes.  Then I selected a panel from the Hand-Penned Memories & More Card Pack.  I cut that down some and matted it on Highland Heather using Liquid Glue.

The Memories & More Card Packs include multiple different “stickers” you can use to decorate your cards and projects.  I selected one of the white ones and stamped the Hand-Penned Petals sentiment in Highland Heather.

I tied a small bow from a piece of Pool Party 3/8″ Sheer Ribbon and adhered it to the card front with a Glue Dot.

I used a few double-stacked Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop the sentiment over the top of the bow.

To finish off, I added a Mint Macaron Genial Gem and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped the pretty floral from Hand-Penned in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the corner of a Basic White panel.  I stamped the large flower once in stamped-off-once Highland Heather.  Then I turned the stamp slightly and stamped it again with full strength Highland Heather.  I stamped the smaller flower once in stamped-off-once Highland Heather.  I added leaves using the stamps in the set, in Mint Macaron.  Then I stuck on another of the Genial Gems, just cuz I could!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Highland Heather mat and into the Hand-Penned Memories & More Card, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

For the front of the Hand-Penned Memories & More Envelope – I stamped the Hand-Penned Petals floral in Tuxedo Black…

…and I didn’t have to do a thing to the pre-decorated envelope flap!

Et Voila!  Well, y’all – I’ll tell you what.  The Hand-Penned Memories & More goodies – be it the Card Pack or the Cards & Envelopes – are simply stunning!  So gorgeous and so perfect to pair with the Hand-Penned Petals stamp set.  But they can also be used all by themselves – there are even sentiments on many of the cards in the pack!

I hope you like!  No…I hope you LOVE it as much as I do! 🙂

The man has been spending more time on the sofa with me in the evening.

Not sure if he’s missing Katy – or…just taking advantage of the fact that the sofa is more available to him.

I suppose it could be that he really really loves me…

Or maybe….

…hmmm.  Never mind.

Stampin’ Up! Friends Are Like Seaside Seashells Birthday

Good morning and welcome to the week.  Also? It’s now officially less than a month before we wing our way to the Aloha State!  Yeah!  And – we found out some good news – there is a Costco on BOTH Maui AND Kauai!!  Which means…my happy place is IN paradise!  It’s like…Happy-Place-SQUARED!!  And we can get food for meals and snacks, too!  Whoo-hooo!!

I’ve got a card that harkens to the sea today (THAT was poetic, huh!?) using the pretty Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set, a little faux stitching from the Stitched With Whimsy dies, and…some pretty Seaside Shells stickers! 😉  Take a look-see:

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

And, although I didn’t go as bright as the colors in the challenge picture, my color palette is from the Color Throwdown challenge.

I started with a Basic White panel that I die cut/embossed with the Stitched With Whimsy next-to-largest die.  Then I matted the panel on Soft Sea Foam for the card front.

I stamped a Friends Are Like Seashells sentiment in Soft Sea Foam near the bottom of the panel.

I de-sticky-fied some of the Seaside Shells stickers (remember – you can use your Embossing Buddy, or your arm or clothes – just tap the sticker on your chosen surface to dull the sticky!) – and popped them onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a second Friends Are Like Seashells sentiment in Soft Sea Foam.  Then I added a So Saffron starfish and a Seaside Spray sand dollar next to it.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Soft Sea Foam mat and into my So Saffron cardbase, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Basic White Medium Envelope got more Friends Are Like Seashells shells on the front…

…and some Sand & Sea DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Simple.  Easy.  Pretty!  I like it!  Friends Are Like Seashells is part of an amazing bundle that includes the wunnermus Seaside Seashells Dies (these are the ones that coordinate with the Seashells 3D Embossing Folder!  It’s all in the Jan – Jun 2021 Mini Catalog and you can still get your hands on all of it!

I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Easy Hand-Penned Memories & More Card Sneak Peek with Video Tutorial!

Good morning – hope your weekend is going well!  Our On Tour virtual event yesterday was great – I got some super cool ideas to share with y’all in the coming weeks as the new 2021-2022 Annual Catalog gets closer – so…stay tuned, okay?!

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 it – here ’tis on YouTube!

I am such a fan of the new Hand-Penned Memories & More Card Pack!  It has so many possibilities for super-easy card making (oh – and it’s ALSO great for scrapbooking! 😉 ) – and it lets you make quick – easy – and WUNNERMUS cards in no time!  For this one, I paired it with some Hand-Penned DSP and a die from the Penned Flowers Dies.  This card pack – as well as the entire Hand-Penned Suite – will be available to customers on 4 May! Take a look-see:

The layout for this one comes from the Mojo Monday sketch challenge!

I started with some pretty Pale Papaya paper from the Hand-Penned DSP that I matted on Garden Green for the card front.  Then I pulled out a second design from the DSP pack and cut the top of the piece with the scalloped die in the Penned Flowers Die set.  Remember – this Penned Flowers will be bundled with the Hand-Penned Petals stamp set.

I adhered the scallop-edge panel onto the bottom of the card front with Liquid Glue.

I pulled two coordinating small panels from the Hand-Penned Memories & More Card Pack and cut them both down a little bit.  Then I adhered the yellow-striped card to the card front at an angle with Liquid Glue.

I popped the second card over the first with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Next, I used some Stampin’ Seal to add a length of Pale Papay 3/8″ Open Weave Ribbon in a loose Z-shape.

I pulled one of the sentiment stickers included in the Hand-Penned Memories & More Card Pack and de-sticky-fied the back.  Tip:  when you’re going to use a sticker and want to pop it on Dimensionals (and who WOULDN’T?!?) – then you want to “dull” the sticky.  Use an Embossing Buddy if you have it to pat the sticky side of the sticker.  Or – tap it on your bare arm or on your jeans!  🙂

Once I de-sticky-fied the label – I popped it over the ribbon with the aforementioned Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a few diamond-shaped Clear epoxy elements from the new Silver & Clear Epoxy Essentials (coming on 4 May in the new catalog) here and there and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added another sticker sentiment – this time using as an actual sticker – on a Basic White panel.  In the corner, I added a floral sticker – it comes in black and white.  I colored it with the Pale Papaya and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends (yes!!  New blends in the new catalog!).

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

My Basic White Medium Envelope got another of the Blends-colored floral stickers on the front…

…and added more of the Hand-Penned DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  As someone commented on the Live video – it would be hard to make a NOT-pretty card with the gorgeous Hand-Penned Suite, right??  And the Hand-Penned Memories & More Card Pack is not only gorgeous – it’s handy as all get out!

I hope you like!

Are you having trouble waiting for 4 May to get this Hand-Penned Suite and other goodies from the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog!?

I don’t blame you – I’d have been anxious, too, if I hadn’t already been able to buy all the new things!  Well – let not your heart be troubled!  I can help you pick any of the new Pre-order items – like the Simply Elegant, Hand-Penned, Pansy Petals and Beauty of the Earth Suites…right now!  When you join the Stampin’ Up! Team – you’ll spend just $99 for your Starter Kit and select $125 worth of SU product (including the PRE-ORDER!).  THEN – you’ll get to buy WHATEVER you like with at least a 20% discount.   As always, there’s no obligation, no commitment and NO requirement to sell/blog/do workshops/etc!  Let me help you get started – I’d love to have you on my Critters-N-Creatin’ Krew Team!

Finn Fan Fix 

The other day as I was tidying up the barn aisle – I happened to look up at our Maternity Ward.

And – there she was!

She was – apparently – hoping for her 10 minutes of fame, cuz she hung around for me to fumble my phone out of my pocket – wake it up and get to the camera – aim – focus – click.  She departed immediately thereafter!

And – a little later – I got a glimpse of what she wanted to show me…

Not really their best side, but…they’re young yet.

Guess I need to put the dog bed under the muzzle so that when flying school starts – their first failures won’t be so likely to end in tragedy! 🙁
