Stampin’ Up! Perfectly Framed Sending Hugs

Happy Friday!  Whoo-hoo!  Hope you’ve had a good week and have something fun planned for the weekend.  We’re supposed to get chilly again and some more rain.  Yeah?!?

Oh well – good weekend to plant my new seed starter!  Yep – got me a light stand and seed starter and SEEDS!!  Time to get those transplants started!

Now – on to the card, since that’s why you’re here, right?  I mean…AFTER you read the Finn Fan Fix.  Yes.  I know you check that first!  It’s okay to admit it. 😉

I pulled out the new perfectly Framed stamp set which coordinates with the carryover Ornate Frames Dies (remember it from the 2019 Holiday Catalog?).  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Moments and Lily Impressions

Happy Hawwwmp Day, y’all!!  How goes your week?

We’re becoming “mold-people” here, I think!  It’s rained.  And rained.  And…yes.  Rained.  For so long now….

But – make no mistake – I’ll take this (and our unseasonably warm days!) – over snow, sleet and cold-of-night anytime!

Do want to remind you…there are only TWO days left to take advantage of my Special Bundles for the 2020 Jan – Jun Mini Catalog.  That’s right – after the day ends on the 17th (Friday!) – these specials are Gone with the Wind!!

Now – my card for today is easy.  And also peasy!  It used the lovely Beautiful Moments stamp set from the new catalog, along with the Parisian Flourish 3D Embossing Folder.  Plus…a FREE goody – the Iris Impressions DSP.  This is one you can get for free with a $50 order (before shipping and tax) while Sale-A-Bration is going on (thru 31 Mar).  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Positive Thoughts

Good morning, y’all!  Hope you’re headed into a good and relatively stress-free week!!

Before we get going – I’ve got THREE extra Single Paper Shares ready to go if anyone wants them.  $15 +$5 for first class shipping gets you 48 – 6″ x 6″ sheets of beautiful new Designer Series Papers – and 6 Best Dressed 3″ x 3″ Note Cards and Envelopes.  Let me know ASAP if you want one or more of these packs of gorgeous paper! 🙂

I’ve got a very feminine card for you today – using the new Positive Thoughts stamp set. It also uses two wonderful Coordination Products that will be available to you on 4 Feb – the Nature’s Thoughts dies and the Pleased As Punch DSP.  Take a look-see!

The soft color palette is from this week’s CAS Colors & Sketches challenge.

And I think it’s pretty feminine so… I’ll enter it in the Water Cooler Wednesday challenge!

I started with a piece of Petal Pink gingham paper from the new Pleased As Punch DSP and matted it on So Saffron for the card front.

Next, using the large rectangle die in the Nature’s Thoughts Dies, I cut out a piece of Whisper White.

On that panel, I stamped the large leaf image from Positive Thoughts several times without re-inking in Bermuda Bay.  Then I added the fluer-d-doo image in So Saffron – again stamping several times without re-inking.

Then I adhered the panel to the card front with Liquid Glue.

Next up was to stamp and cut all the elements for the collage.  I stamped the big leaf image in Bermuda Bay on Whisper White and cut it with the die in Nature’s Thoughts.  I stamped two Petal Pink flowers and three Daffodil Delight butterflies and cut them out as well.  Then I cut two feathers – one in Whisper White and one in Petal Pink Perennial Essence Vellum Card Stock.  Finally, a few Bermuda Bay leaf die cuts joined the pile!

The sentiment – from Positive Thoughts – is stamped in Bermuda Bay on the Perennial Essence Vellum and cut with an Ornate Frames Die (carried over from the Holiday Catalog).

With everything cut and ready, I built the collage – adding and moving pieces around until it looked right.

Then I took it’s picture!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere all the pieces – starting with the large Bermuda Bay leaf and building the layers.  When I got to the sentiment – I used Glue Dots (they’re pretty easy to “hide” when using Vellum!).  Finally – the last flower is popped on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I used Liquid Glue to tuck the Bermuda Bay die cut leaves in here and there into the collage and then added a bow tied with Petal Pink 5/8″ Striped Organdy Ribbon with a Glue Dot.

A few Champagne Rhinestone Jewels finished off the card front.

On the inside, I added the large Positive Thoughts leaf in Bermuda Bay on a Whisper White panel, stamping it a few times without re-inking.  I also added a second sentiment in Bermuda Bay.  Over the sentiment, in stamped-off-once Petal Pink, I stamped the feather image from the stamp set.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a So Saffron mat and into my Bermuda Bay card base, added the card front with Liquid Glue and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Bermuda Bay leaves on the front…

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

Et Voila!  I love this color scheme and the Positive Thoughts stamp set is just gorgeous!  Thank you, Stampin’ Up!, for the Nature’s Thoughts Dies so we can easily cut out all the wonderful images in the stamp set!!

The Pleased As Punch DSP is amazeballs!  The back of the design I used here has hearts – and they all get punched with the new Hearts Punch Pack!!

Whoo-hoo!  I hope you like!

4 Feb is a long time to wait for these wonderful Coordination Products, isn’t it?  Want them now?  Well – all you have to do is take advantage of the AWESOME Sale-A-Bration Joining Special and join the team right now!  Then you can pre-order ALL the new goodies!  Holler at me and I’ll get you all hooked up!

Finn Fan Fix


Finn is a bit of a…daredevil!

He takes risks.

Like…

It’s his favorite spot to sleep when we’re all in the living room

He risks squish-i-fication at any moment.

Cuz…he gets so far under there that he’s pretty hard to see.  So…it’s pretty darned easy to forget he’s there!

Goofy thing.

Stampin’ Up! Power of Hope on Stone for the Paper Players

Good morning!  Hope your weekend is going well.  It finally stopped raining here – so…we executed a “pause work” order on the Ark!  Seriously.  Had the FedEx guy NOT deliver on Friday because of “weather”.  😉

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

Now – I’ve had the distinct honor of being asked to join the The Paper Players for 2020 as a Guest Designer!  Wow!!  What a thrill.  I hope that I can do them proud – and that each week my card (and those of the whole Design Team!) will inspire you all to get inky and crafty and join our challenges!!

For this week, I used the new Sale-A-Bration Power of Hope Bundle.  Yes – it’s a stamp set, bundled with the Stone 3D Embossing Folder.  And you can get the whole bundle for free with a $100 purchase during SAB.  Take a look-see!

And here’s this week’s Paper Players challenge!

I started with a piece of Basic Gray card stock that I embossed in the Stone 3D Embossing Folder.  Then I used several ink pads that I swiped across the embossed surface sort of randomly – Pretty Peacock, Mossy Meadow, Pumpkin Pie and a little Pineapple Punch that I sponged on last.  Then I swiped an almost-empty Clear Wink of Stella across the surface.  I matted the panel on Pool Party to create the card front.

I used the largest Stitched So Sweetly die to cut out a piece of Gray Granite.  Then, with the tree image in the Power of Hope set, I  stamped all around the edge in Gray Granite ink.  Each time I inked the stamp, I stamped it off once on my scrap paper before starting on the panel.  Then I stamped a few times before re-inking again.

I used the Stamparatus to add the Geisha image and the sentiment from Power of Hope in Soft Suede ink.

I also stamped the Geisha on a piece of Peaceful Poppies DSP and a piece of Tropical Oasis DSP.  I fussy cut the dress from the Peaceful Poppies and the parasol from the Tropical Oasis.  Then I adhered each piece to the panel with Liquid Glue.

On the card front – I used Glue Dots to wind a length of Gray Granite 1/2″ Textured Weave Ribbon into three loops.  Then I popped the panel over top with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a couple three Coastal Cabana gems from the Holiday Rhinestones and the card front was done.

On the inside, I added a second sentiment from Power of Hope in Soft Suede on a Gray Granite panel.  Then, in stamped-off-once Gray Granite, I added the tree over top the sentiment – then stuck on another Holiday Rhinestone for good measure!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Pool Party mat and into my Thick Whisper White card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

The front of my Whisper White Medium Envelope got a full-strength Soft Suede tree on the front…

…and more of the Peaceful Poppies DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  The Power of Hope set is lovely – serene and artistic – and perfect for paper-piecing!  And I do love the bundled Stone 3D Embossing Folder – it really let me make some “slate”!  Take all that and add in….FREE??!  WOW! I hope you like!

Don’t miss out on my Double Peppermint Ordering Special, okay?  Pick up $100 worth – get EIGHT peppermints (yes, that’s already HALF-WAY to your $40 Pepperint Reward) AND pick up the awesome Power of Hope Bundle for free! Winner Winner!

Finn Fan Fix


 

Okay.

Finn will do pretty much anything for a piece of biscuit.  Or popcorn.  Or a cookie.  Or a broccoli.

He’s a bit of a chow-hound.

But he’s so darned cute at it!

Please make note of the paw…

He’s ambi-paw-strous.

Pretty sweet.  And highly effective.

Stampin’ Up! Here’s To Strong Women!

Happy Friday, y’all!  When you get this post, I’ll be on the way to a day of stamping and fun with Brian King and a 100+ other demonstrators.  I think it’s going to be a great day!  I’m presenting a little do-ha on making collage cards.  So…fingers crossed!  And be watching my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page – I’ll post some pics as the day progresses!

Now, my card today is about as far from a collage card as it’s possible for me to get!  This is a Clean And Simple card to celebrate a strong woman – using the aptly named…Here’s To Strong Women stamp set.  And a little Brightly Gleaming Specialty DSP.  Take a look-see:

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!
