Stampin’ Up! Gather Together Harvest Hellos 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 Hop is a sketch 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!

I figured to give you another 2019 Holiday Catalog sneak peek – using the wonderful Gather Together and Harvest Hellos bundles – plus some Come to Gather DSP – and make a collage card for Fall!  Take a look-see:

And…here’s our sketch for the challenge!

I started with a piece of Early Espresso card stock, folded to make a landscape card front – and, using the large leaf image from the Gather Together stamp set, I stamped the leaves across the front of the card base in Early Espresso ink.

Next up is a strip of Come to Gather DSP, matted on Mint Macaron, and adhered right to the card front with Liquid Glue.  A second design, also matted on Mint Macaron, was next.

I used the same DSP design that I made my strip from and cut a Stitched Shapes circle.

The leaves – all cut with the wonderful dies in the Gathered Leaves Die set – are cut (and embossed at the same time!) from Mint Macaron and Pretty Peacock card stocks.  I used my Stampin’ Spritzer to lightly mist the card stock before running it thru the die cutting machine.  Yes – I did one set without misting….liked it better with the water.  So… 😉  I lightly curled the leaves just using my fingers to roll them.

I pulled out the Harvest Hellos stamp set and stamped the large pumpkin in Early Espresso on Very Vanilla.  I colored it with my Dark So Saffron and Light and Dark Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends – then I punched it out with the bundled Apple Builder Punch.  I also punched a little stem from Early Espresso.

I used the sentiment from Harvest Hellos and stamped it on Very Vanilla in Pretty Peacock.  Over top is a small pumpkin from Gather Together, stamped in stamped-off-once Mint Macaron – then cut with the matching die from Gathered Leaves.

I built up the collage with Liquid Glue for the leaves and Stitched Shapes Circle – and Dimensionals for the pumpkins.  Before adhering the colored pumpkin, I added a few loops of Cajun Craze Linen Thread from the new Gather Together Ribbon Combo.

I added some Pumpkin Pie jewels from the Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a second sentiment from Harvest Hellos in Pretty Peacock on a Very Vanilla panel.  Over top is a stamped-off-once Mint Macaron pumpkin from Gather Together.  I added a few more of those pumpkins – full strength! – across the bottom.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Mint Macaron mat and into my Early Espresso card base and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got more Gather Together pumpkins on the front…

…and more of the Come To Gather DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  These two bundles – Harvest Hellos and Gather Together – just go together like peanut butter and jelly!  Having them both – plus the Come To Gather DSP – will give you a huge head start for all your Fall and Thanksgiving projects!  You’ll be able to get your hands on all of it come 4 September!  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!

Stampin’ Up! Leave a Little Sparkle Unicorn and Petals

Good morning!  It’s Hawwmmp Day!!  Whoo-hoo!

Yes – I still care about these things.  Just…not as much as I used to! 😉

So – my card today is going to be reminiscent of one I did a couple weeks back.  It’s a special order (they don’t upset us) so…I pulled the Leave a Little Sparkle stamp set and some Pressed Petals Specialty DSP and made another magical unicorn card for a tiny girl human headed off to school!  Take a look-see:

Similar – and yet…different, yes?  There’s the beauty of this wonderful craft of ours!

I started with a different design of the gorgeous Pressed Petals Specialty DSP and matted it on Daffodil Delight for the card front.

Then I stamped “Sparkles” (that’s what I named him) in the center of the oval in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  His mane is colored with the Light and Dark Rococo Rose Stampin’ Blends – plus my Merry Merlot Stampin’ Write Marker.  I brushed his body with Frost White Shimmer Paint using a dried out Blender Pen.

Next, I grabbed the Lovely Leaves Dies and cut some Daffodil Delight and Rococo Rose flowers, some Mossy Meadow Leaves, a few Very Vanilla “wildflowers”, and a couple of Gold Glimmer leaves and small flowers.

I made a flower with the Pressed Petals Specialty Washi Tape – I patted the back of each “petal” with my Embossing Buddy so they wouldn’t stick together.  In the middle is a Perennial Essence Floral Center.

I stamped a Leave A Little Sparkle sentiment in Merry Merlot on a strip of Daffodil Delight and bannerized the end with my Paper Snips.

Since I wanted a little more sparkle, I brushed the Very Vanilla “dandelions” with my Clear Wink of Stella.

Then I dry fit the collage and took a couple of pictures so I could put it all together.  Thought you might like to see how it all went together! 🙂

I adhered everything with Liquid Glue – with the exception of a couple of small flowers around Sparkles’ horn – I popped those on with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added some Noble Peacock Rhinestones and Rhinestone Basic Jewels – and some gold stars from the Most Wonderful Time Product Medley (this one is coming on 4 Sept in the 2019 Holiday Catalog)!

Before adding the Pressed Petals flower – I used a Glue Dot to adhere a double-length bow tied with Linen Thread.  I added the flower over top – with a little Liquid Glue – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a second Leave A Little Sparkle in Merry Merlot to a Very Vanilla panel.  Over the top is the sparkly-flourish in Rococo Rose.  And a few more Most Wonderful Time gold stars just cuz!

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

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got another Leave a Little Sparkle flourish in Rococo Rose and some gold stars on the front…

…and one of the Pressed Petals Specialty DSP papers – that coordinates perfectly with the flower on the front of the card! – on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Pressed Petals and Leave a Little Sparkle come together again to create a little girl’s fantasy!  I hope you like – I am quite sure that SHE will!

Summertime, summertime, sum-sum-summertime, summertime!

For us – summer is flip flops and shorts, watermelon and BBQ.

For a horse-dog, it’s…

…laying in front of the fan in the barn aisle.

Having a little puppy-picnic.

If you have horses – you know what those are.

If you don’t….you might not really want to know…. 😉

Stampin’ Up! Garden Goodness Perfect Day!

‘Sup, y’all!?  Hope your week is going well!  And that you’re redeeming those Bonus Days coupons!! 🙂

My card today uses a new-to-me set called Garden Goodness!  And I used it to make a summery card that would be a good one for a birthday – or any big day!  Back to school, maybe?  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from this week’s CAS(E) This Sketch challenge.

And I played along with the Word Week challenge at Just Us Girls!  Nothing at all says summer to me like sun-ripe tomatoes fresh off the vine!

I started with some Very Vanilla card stock that I embossed in the Basket Weave 3D Embossing Folder then cut down to size and matted on Mango Melody for the card front.

On a smaller piece of Vellum card stock, I stamped the cherry tomato vine twice in Old Olive. I also added the stem image twice.  Then I let them dry really well – okay, I gave them a little help with my Heat Tool on Low! 🙂

When all dry, I added tomatoes in Cherry Cobbler and Pumpkin Pie.

Again, when the vellum was dry, I used Glue Dots to adhere the panel to the card front – hiding them under the stamped images – and putting two very carefully in the bottom corners!

I wrapped a length of 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim twice around the panel, securing it in the back with Glue Dots.

I stamped some more stems and tomatoes on Very Vanilla and fussy cut them.  I also stamped the sentiment banner in Pumpkin Pie and added the sentiment in Old Olive – and fussy cut that as well.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the sentiment and the “bottom” tomato.  Then I popped the other two tomatoes on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Finally, I tied a bow with the 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim and adhered it with a dab of Liquid Glue – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a second sentiment from Garden Goodness in Old Olive to a Very Vanilla panel.  I also added Old Olive stems and Pumpkin Pie cherry tomatoes!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Mango Melody mat and into my Thick Very Vanilla card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got more tomatoes…on the front…

…and on the envelope flap.

Et voila!  Summer = tomatoes.  Always – whether they’re on a vine outside your door or at your Farmer’s Market!  Garden Goodness, with it’s PERFECT tomato images brings those ripe goodies right to your projects!  I could hardly stop stamping them! 🙂  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Bird Ballads and Tasteful Textures 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 sketch 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!

I pulled out the Tasteful Textures stamp set and bundled Detailed Textures Dies and combined them with some Bird Ballad DSP and the sweet little bird from the Free as a Bird stamp set.  Take a look-see:

…and…here’s our sketch! 🙂

I love the angled panels – one of my favorite designs!

I started with some flower-dy paper from the Bird Ballad DSP and matted it on Basic Black for the card front.

In the middle of a smaller piece of Basic Black, I cut the flower image using the die in the Detailed Textures set.  Then I used a second piece of Bird Ballad DSP and that die cut panel to create the angled design – adhering them with Liquid Glue.

I wrapped a length of new Very Vanilla 3/8″ Scalloped Lace Trim around the panel, securing it in the back with Glue Dots.

From a piece of Shimmer Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper, I cut one of the flower – leaf – berry designs.  Then I cut it down a little and adhered part with the Vanilla side up and a couple of pieces with the White side up with Liquid Glue.

The sentiment, from Tasteful Textures, is stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the Bird Ballad DSP and cut out with a Stitched Nested Label die.

In the upper corner of the sentiment label, I stamped the feet of the bird from Free as a Bird in Tuxedo Black.  Then I popped the label onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a seperate piece of Whisper White, I stamped the Free as a Bird bird in Tuxedo Black and colored him with my Dark So Saffron and Light Pool Party and Coastal Cabana Stampin’ Blends.  Then I fussy cut him – just cutting his legs off.

I adhered the bird to the label with Liquid Glue – using Dimensionals under him as well.

I used a Glue Dot to adhere a leaf from the Bird Ballad Trinkets and a bow from the Very Vanilla 3/8″ Scalloped Lace Trim.

I added a single Pearl Basic Jewel and the card front was done!

For the inside, I inked the flower image from Tasteful Textures in Powder Pink, stamped it off once on scrap paper and then stamped it in the center of a Whisper White panel.  Over that I added a second sentiment in Tuxedo Black.

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got a full strength Powder Pink flower image from Tasteful Textures on the front…

…and more of the flower-dy Bird Ballad DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I love how Bird Ballad – with its sweet flowers and chickadee (that’s my story and I’m sticking to it!) and the Tasteful Textures bundle came together to create a unashamedly feminine card!  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Leave a Little Sparkle 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!

I might have gotten a little jiggy with the color challenge (a LITTLE, I said!) – I was making a card for my Mom to send to a young lady who is starting first grade this Fall.  I thought the unicorn and sentiments from the Leave a Little Sparkle set was perfect.  And a unicorn in a bower of flowers (yes, I said “bower”) seemed like just the thing – so I pulled out my Pressed Petals Specialty DSP.  Take a look-see:

Here’s the challenge.

And I borrowed the layout from this week’s FUSION challenge!

I started with the Pressed Petals Specialty DSP and matted it on Mossy Meadow for the card front.

I cut a strip of Very Vanilla and stamped the first sentiment from Leave a Little Sparkle in Mossy Meadow in the middle on the right side.  Then I matted it on Mossy Meadow and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I used SNAIL to adhere some Rococo Rose 1/2″ Gathered Ribbon across the top and bottom of the strip.

For the art, I stamped the unicorn from Leave A Little Sparkle in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a piece of Very Vanilla and cut it with a large Stitched Shapes die.  I colored his (her?) mane with my Light and Dark Rococo Rose Stampin’ Blends and the Rococo Rose Stampin’ Write Marker (that gives three shades of the same color!).

I used an old Blender Pen to color the body and horn of the unicorn with Frosted White Shimmer Paint.  Then I brushed Clear Wink of Stella over the mane.  I popped the oval onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut several flowers in Very Vanilla and Rococo Rose using the die from the Lovely Flowers die set.  Each Rococo Rose flower got a Rhinestone Basic Jewel and the Very Vanilla’s got a Petal Pink Noble Peacock Rhinestone.  I also cut leaves from Mossy Meadow and Gold Foil.

Then I used Liquid Glue and Mini Dimensionals to adhere them around the unicorn horn and on the side of the oval.

I tied a double-loop bow from Mossy Meadow Linen Thread (part of the Magnolia Lane Ribbon Combo Pack) and adhered it with a Glue Dot.  Over the top I added a double-length simple bow from Linen Thread.  Finally, I added some gold stars from the Most Wonderful Time Product Medley (2019 Holiday Catalog – coming on 4 Sept) – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added the second Leave A Little Sparkle sentiment in Mossy Meadow to a Very Vanilla panel.  In the corners, I stamped the sparkle-flourish image in stamped-off-once Rococo Rose.  I added another gold star, just cuz…

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Mossy Meadow mat and into my Very Vanilla card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got a full-strength Rococo Rose flourish on the front…

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

Et Voila!  I am hoping that this girly-flowerdy-unicorny card from Leave a Little Sparkle will appeal to the young recipient!  Who could really resist a unicorn peering from within a bower of pretty rose and cream flowers?  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 Jaimie’s page. And you can just click on the names below to go direct to all the blogs!

Stampin’ Up! Winds of Change for a Friend

Happy Sunday, my peeps!  I hope your weekend is going well.  And I hope that MY weekend has been productive.  My list is long – and the little check boxes…too empty, I fear!  But – Wednesday is coming and it will be what it will be, right?  Regardless of what is – or is NOT – done, we’ll be leaving on a jet plane.

Hopefully one with four engines.

Just sayin’! 🙂

If you were able to join me last night for my Live Facebook video, I appreciate you spending part of YOUR weekend with me.  And this is where I’d usually say – “If not – but you’d like to see how I made today’s card – then…here’s the almost-Memorex version on my YouTube channel.”  But THIS week, apparently my video stopped recording about 1 minute in.  Not entirely sure why but…it’s gone! 🙁

So – we’ll have to do this old-school! 🙂

I played with a lovely new set called Winds of Change – and used a sort-of-Double-Time technique.  Take a look-see:

Pretty image – makes ya want to click your clogs.

Or have some Anderson Pea Soup….

Not everyone’s gonna get than one! 😉

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

And the color pallete is from the Inspire. Create.  Challenge.

I started with a card-front-sized piece of Whisper White card stock and, using my Stamparatus, stamped the image from the new Winds of Change stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  Then I laid a smaller strip over the top and stamped the image again.

And then…I…let…it…dry.

For a good loooooong time! 🙂

Once it was good and dry, I used Stampin’ Blends in Purple Posy, Rococo Rose and Pretty Peacock to color the flowers – making sure to get the flowers on the larger panel fully colored (where they’d be visible!), too.  I used my Seaside Spray Stampin’ Write Marker to highlight portions of the windmill.

I used my Stamparatus – and the acetate from the now-retired Stamp-A-Ma-Jig – to add the sentiment from Winds of Change in Terracotta Tile ink.  Then I matted both panels on Seaside Spray card stock.

I popped the narrow strip onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals – making sure to align the image!  Then I added a few 2019-2021 In Color Faceted Dots and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added another floral image from Winds of Change in Tuxedo Black and colored it with my Rococo Rose and Pretty Peacock Stampin’ Blends.  Then I added another little Terracotta Tile dot.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Seaside Spray 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 a repeat of the sweet spray of tulips on the front…

…and I added some Terracotta Tile paper (with scripty writing on it!) from the 2019-2020 In Color 6″ x 6″ DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This wonderful new Winds of Change hits all the right notes – gorgeous flowers – beautiful sentiments in lovely fonts!  Stampin’ Up! really hit it out of the park (the TULIP park)!  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Tasteful Woven Textures Card

Happy Happy Hawwwmp Day, y’all!  Guess what?

What, Mary?

Well – one week and about 6 hours from that day’s blog post going live…we’ll be headed to the airport!  Whoo-hooo!

Gelato.  Baklave.  Tiramisu.  Dolmas.  Lasagna.  Spanakopita.  Spaghetti Carbonara!  Tiramisu – yes, I said it twice.  IT.  IS. THAT. GOOD!

See?  Been practicing my Greek and Italian! I think I’m ready!

My card today uses the new Tasteful Textures stamp set and bundled Tasteful Backgrounds Dies – paired up with some beautiful Woven Threads DSP.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from this week’s Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge.

And the color scheme – ALL the new 2019-2021 In Colors! – is from the Fab Friday challenge!

 

The Woven Threads DSP was a pretty obvious choice for this color challenge – so…I took the obvious route – and matted a piece on Pretty Peacock for the card front.

Next up is a piece in Rococo Rose – also matted on Pretty Peacock and adhered with Liquid Glue.

I cut a narrow strip of Terracotta Tile paper from the Woven Threads DSP and cut one of the pretty designs from it using the Tasteful Backgrounds Dies.  Then I matted it on Pretty Peacock with Liquid Glue.

I wrapped a piece of new Pretty Peacock 1/2″ Scalloped Linen Ribbon around that panel – securing it in the back with Glue Dots.  I tied a faux bow with a second short length of the same ribbon.  Then I popped the whole thing onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped a sentiment from the Tasteful Textures stamp set in Pretty Peacock on Whisper White and cut it with a Stitched Shapes Framelits oval.  I used Liquid Glue and a couple of Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the sentiment to the card front.

I added some 2019-2020 In Color Faceted Dots – in Pretty Peacock and Seaside Spray – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a flourish image from Tasteful Textures in stamped-off-once Balmy Blue in the center of a Whisper White panel.  Over the top of that, I added a second sentiment in Pretty Peacock.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Pretty Peacock mat and into my Balmy Blue card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another stamped-off-once Balmy Blue flourish – I put it under the address area! – on the front…

…and I picked one of my Woven Threads DSPs and added it to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Wow!  The Tasteful Textures stamp set and bundled Tasteful Background Dies seem to have just been made to coordinate with the Woven Threads DSP, don’t you think?  I love how this one turned out.  I hope you like!

He starts off pretty delicately.

Well – as delicately as one Man can get with ginormous furry hands.

Then, though – He.  Gets.  Busy.
