My 2019-2020 Annual Catalog sneak peek for today is a fussy-cutting-Queen’s dream!  If you hate fussy cutting…look away! 😉

I used the new Memorable Mosaic stamp set and the Mosaic Mood Specialty DSP – both coming on 4 June – to make a fun card good for sending to…anyone for a special day and any day at all!  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Perennial Floral Essence 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!

For mine today, I pulled out some of the prettiest DSP that you’re ever going to see – the Perennial Essence DSP in the new 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.  It’s going to be available on 4 Jun – along with the rest of the Perennial Essence Suite.  Take a look-see:

Yep – that’s the paper doing all the work, folks!

Here’s the sketch we were all working with.

I started with some of that pretty paper and matted it on Crushed Curry for the card front.

Then, using two different designs from the paper pack, I cut two banner strips.  I bannerized the ends by sticking the strip in the back of the Tailored Tag Punch (yes, I left my Banner Triple Punch at home.  Do not ask me why!).

I adhered both banners to the card front with Liquid Glue.

For the flowers, I stamped the image from the Floral Essence stamp set 4 times in Crushed Curry on some…So Saffron Vellum Card Stock!!  Whoo-hooo!!  COLORED Vellum.  You can get it and Old Olive and Petal Pink all in a 12″ x 12″ combo pack when the new catalog comes out in June!

Once the flowers were good and dry, I punched them all out with the Perennial Flower Punch (bundled with the Floral Essence stamp set in the new catalog) and created flowers by stacking two together with a Stampin’ Dimensional.

I added a fuzzy Perennial Essence Flower Center to each flower and set them aside for a minute.

On a piece of Petal Pink paper from the Perennial Essence DSP, I stamped the Floral Essence sentiment in Blackberry Bliss ink using my Stamparatus.  Over the sentiment, I added the Floral Essence flower image in Petal Pink.  Then I cut it all out with a Stitched Shapes Framelits circle die.  I adhered the circle to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stuck a Perennial Essence Flower Center onto the sentiment circle, popped the two Vellum flowers on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped the Floral Essence flower a few times in Petal Pink in the corner of more of the Perennial Essence DSP.  I gave each flower a center with the little image from Floral Essence in stamped-off-twice Crushed Curry.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Crushed Curry mat and into my Blackberry Bliss card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Floral Essence flowers and centers (in full strength Crushed Curry) on the front…

…and I used a little more of the Perennial Essence DSP on the envelope flap!

Et Voila!  Oh my goodness, you guys!!  THIS.  PAPER.  IS.  SPECTACULAR!  Each piece brings more stunning gorgeousness – like Monet painting after Monet painting!  Wow!  It works so perfectly with the coordinating Floral Essence stamp set and bundled Perennial Flower Punch, too.  You’re truly going to love this one!  I hope you like!

Stampin’ UP! Mosaic Mood Daisy Lane Sneak Peek

Guess what DAY IT IS?!?  Yep!  You know it to be THAT DAY!

I’ve got a sneak peek for you today – we got the new Daisy Lane stamp set AND a pack of Mosaic Mood Specialty DSP as a little part of our “swag” at OnStage last weekend – as well as the new Timeless Label Punch (all of these will be available to customers on 4 Jun 19!).  So – since I’d been so excited to get these little goodies, I decided to share a project I made with them!  Take a look-see:

I took a little inspiration for some of the elements on the card from the samples in the new 2019-2020 Annual Catalog!  And – I let the theme from this week’s Just Us Girls Challenge give me a hand, too!

Before we get too far – check the Daisy Lane stamp set (coming on 4 Jun).  This one coordinates with the Daisy Punch (which you may already have – if you don’t, you can pick it up right now and be ready!) and…there’s a new MEDIUM DAISY PUNCH coming in the catalog!!  Whoo-hooo!

And check out this gorgeous Mosaic Mood Specialty DSP!  It’s got mosaic tile images with shiny accents and I love it already!

Okay – so let’s make a card!

I started with some Very Vanilla, matted on Soft Suede for the card front.  On top of that, I used Liquid Glue to adhere a square of the Mosaic Mood Specialty DSP (4 Jun availability).

For the art panel, I first used my Stamparatus to stamp a couple of leaves and stems from Daisy Lane in Mint Macaron on a Very Vanilla panel.  I also inked the smallest daisy image from Daisy Lane in Crushed Curry, stamped it off once, and added it a couple of times around the leaves.

Then I matted the panel on Soft Suede and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

On a separate piece of Very Vanilla, I stamped three large daisies and three medium daisies from Daisy Lane in Crushed Curry.  I punched the large ones with the Daisy Punch – and fussy cut the smaller ones.  In about a month, I’ll use the Medium Daisy Punch – and YOU SHOULD, TOO! 🙂

I built my flowers by adhering them together with a Stampin’ Dimensional – either regular size or mini.  Then I added a Gold Faceted Gem to the middle of each flower.

The sentiment, also from Daisy Lane, is stamped in Mint Macaron on Very Vanilla and cut out with the new Timeless Label Punch (4 Jun).  I added some small Daisy Lane daisies over top in stamped-off-once Crushed Curry.  Then I used my Soft Suede Stampin’ Write Marker to edge the label.

I created a “pot” with a strip of Soft Suede (for the top “rim”) and an angled piece that I also embossed in the Basket Weave Dynamic TIEF (carrying over!).  I adhered the pot to the panel with Liquid Glue and popped the “rim” on with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the stacked daisies and Stampin’ Dimensionals for the sentiment.  Then I added a Mint Macaron bow from Nature’s Twine and a final Gold Faceted Gem.  Then I fussy cut a few leaves from the Mosaic Mood Specialty DSP and stuck them in here and there with Liquid Glue to finish the card front.  Check that adorable bee!

On the inside, I used my Stamparatus to add a second sentiment from Daisy Lane in Mint Macaron on a Very Vanilla panel – then I added a stamped-off-once Crushed Curry daisy over top.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Soft Suede 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 more daisies on the front – I stamped the ones on the right side twice without re-inking, and the one on the left is stamped-off-once…

…and I added a little more Mosaic Mood Specialty DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voial!  Oh.  My.  Goodness!!  How awesome is this stamp set, y’all!??  And the beautiful Mosaic Mood Specialty DSP?  I mean seriously!  And the fact that we’re getting a new Medium Daisy Punch (and the current Daisy Punch AND Daisy Delight stamp sets are carrying over!!) means we’re going to have SO many options for creating gorgeous florals on our projects!  Get the Daisy Delight stamp set and Daisy Punch NOW and then add these new goodies to your wish list!

Hope you like!

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.

Stampin’ UP! Come Sail Away Sneak Peek!

Good morning!  Have you been scouring the Retiring List?  Making sure you’ve grabbed up your favorites?  Are you one of those folks who does NOT own Lovely as a Tree – and figured it would “be available forever and ever and no need to buy it now!”??  Well…uhm…yea.  That’s not happening!  So…don’t assume your faves will always be here – get them NOW!  Just sayin’!

As the old and wonderful get ready to take their swan song, the NEW and wonderful are waiting in the wings to WOW you!  One of those is the new Come Sail Away Suite that I demo’d this past weekend.  I thought I’d show one of those samples to you today – in a little more detail – so that you can get a really good look at the Sailing Home stamp set and Smooth Sailing Dies – all available to customers on 4 Jun!  Take a look-see:

This one is easier to make than you might think – so…here we go! 🙂

I started with a piece of Night of Navy card stock and the Seaside TIEF (which is on the Retiring List, folks – so….be sure you get it before you can’t!).  With my Craft Whisper White Ink Pad, I swiped across the DEBOSSING side of the TIEF – so the indented side.  I made sure I had good coverage then carefully placed the Night of Navy panel in the folder and ran it thru the Big Shot.  When it came out – boom!!  Instant “water” – which I enhanced even more by brushing Clear Wink of Stella over the raised “waves”.

I matted the panel on Sahara Sand to create the card front.

Next up, using the grasses die in the new Smooth Sailing Dies – available on 4 June! – I cut one from Old Olive and two from Mossy Meadow.  These I adhered to the card front with Liquid Glue – only at the bottom of the die cuts, letting the tops sort of “float”.  See what I did there? 😉

I did the same with a grass die cut from Vellum card stock – did you hear me mention on the demonstration that there is COLORED Vellum in the new 20190-2020 Annual Catalog?  Yep – it’s in the Perennial Essence Vellum pack 12″ x 12″ sheets in Old Olive, Petal Pink and So Safffron!  Whoo-hooo!

The anchor, from the Sailing Home stamp set, is stamped in Sahara on Whisper White and cut with the matching die from the Smooth Sailing Die set.  I used a length of the new Night of Navy & Sahara Sand Baker’s Twine (part of the Suite and coming on 4 June), looped it thru the top of the die cut anchor, tied a knot and then adhered the anchor on with Liquid Glue.

I stamped the Sailing Home sentiment in Mossy Meadow on Whisper White, cut it out with the label die in Smooth Sailing, and popped it over all the sea grass and anchor with Dimensionals.

Some Pearl Basic Jewels scattered here and there finished off the card front!

On the inside, on a piece of Whisper White, I stamped the anchor in Sahara Sand.  Then, I used my Sponge Daubers and the card stock “stencils” created when I cut the grasses for the card front! – to sponge some grass on and around the anchor in Old Olive and Mossy Meadow.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Sahara Sand mat and into my Night of Navy card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

I repeated the Sailing Home/Smooth Sailing stamping and stencil sponging on the front of my Whisper White Medium Envelope…

…and then I stamped the anchor onto the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  How excited are you about this Come Sail Away Suite?!?  This product suite has so many good elements in it – and it’s going to be an awesome tool for all your crafting needs – especially for creating those frequently-problematic masculine cards.  I hope you like – and have now written this suite down as one of your first purchases when the new catty comes out in June!  Unless you want it RIGHT NOW.  I can help you with that!  Give me a shout! 🙂

Carryover Clear-Mount and Wood-Mount Stamps

The lists sort of make it look like every single stamp set from the 2018-19 Annual Catalog is being retired – but that is not the case.  Rather, the stamp sets currently offered in clear-mount or wood-mount (in the 2018–2019 Annual Catalog), that ARE carrying over – are simply 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. 🙂

Any other stamp sets on the 2018-19 Annual Catalog retiring list that are NOT on this list will be retired.  Sorry again for the confusion!  Stampin’ Up! is aware of it and hopefully will be posting an updated list for us.

Stampin’ UP! Crackle Let it Ride!

Well.  It’s here!  This is the day I head to OnStage!  Finally!!  When I arrive I’ll head right to the convention center to do my dress rehearsal – gulp! – and then Amy and Sue and I will go to CenterStage tonight!  Where…we’ll get an early look at the new 2019-2020 Annual Catalog!!  Whoo-hoooo!!

I made a fun card for you today – totally not my normal style – as the result of a color challenge.  I used the Let It Ride and Crackle Paint stamp sets.  Do not adjust your dials.  I have taken over your screen.  This card is exactly how it looks in the pictures.  Black.  And White.  Take a look-see.

Stampin’ Up! Amazing Butterfly Life

‘Sup, y’all!?  Week going well?  We’ve finally got a little teensy warmer weather up here in the Baltimore area – thank the Good Lord!  Boy, when the wind blows here it is Some.  Kind.  Of.  Cold!  Brrrr!

I have a Spring-y card for you today – to counter the cold, maybe? It uses one of my favorite Sale-A-Bration goodies (and you’ve only got 6 more days to get plenty of it for your stash!) – the Botanical Butterfly DSP.  Atop that pretty paper, I just added a big bold sentiment from the Amazing Life bundle.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Seashells By The Bay

Good morning!  Welcome back to the work week.

And – the beginning of the end of Sale-A-Bration.  Can you even believe that?!?  If you don’t have all your goodies yet – be sure to snap them up this week – and get DOUBLE Peppermints from me at the same time.  Sort of a win-win, don’t you think?? 🙂

My By The Bay card today is one I wasn’t sure was ever going to do how I wanted it to do.  Especially after I did the inner liner and realized I’d made it in the portrait orientation.  Which was perfectly acceptable, except my card was in landscape, so…that pretty much wasn’t going to cut it!  But – I finally got it done – and I think it turned out pretty much how I thought it would.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Dear Doily Video Sneak Peek

Good morning, y’all!  It’s the weekend!  And it is – apparently! – a weekend of change!

So – I was SUPPOSED to be at work today but…found out yesterday that it’s going to be too windy to do our event today.  I sure didn’t think wind was going to be a thing for this test, but…whatever!  We’ve moved the whole day to tomorrow.  Which has it’s own issues – not least of which is that I’ll not be able to do our Sunday night video.

Well – not on SUNDAY, at least!  I really don’t want to miss my time with you guys, so we’re going to try to get together tonight!  Or – more accurately, I’ll be live on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page at 7pm Eastern (please note it’s a DAY early AND an HOUR early!!) – and hoping that you can all join me!

We’ll be making a fun little card using the Dear Doily stamp set.  Take a sneaky peek!

Stampin’ Up! Share a Well Said Ride!

Happy Hawwmp Day, y’all!  The week is progressing – too fast for once – to the weekend.  Before I know it I’ll be headed to the airport to pick up the rental car and bringing it home to pack!  The only real question is whether my list of gotta-get-dones will be got-done by then! 😉

A little admin-y stuff first…I’ve got new info below about some die sets that are in danger of going “not orderable” due to the high demand we’ve experienced.  Take a look and if something you were wanting is on the list…hop to it!  I don’t think they’ll last long…
