Stampin’ Up! Elegantly Said Sneak Peek for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good morning, y’all!  It’s Thursday – which means it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!!  We’ve got a sketch challenge to work with today and I’m excited to see what everyone brings to the table!  I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop today!

I decided to play with the Elegantly Said stamp set for today’s card.  I just got the pretty metallic-foiled Simply Elegant Specialty DSP and made a card with my fave design in the pack!  Take a look-see:

And here’s our hop sketch challenge.

I also played along with the Tic-Tac-Toe challenge.  Went across the middle row.  🙂

I started with a piece of Basic Gray cardstock that I embossed in the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder.  Then I used a Blender Brush to very lightly brush the ridges and swirls of the embossed image with Whisper White Kraft Ink.

I matted the panel on Smoky Slate for the card front.  Using Stampin’ Seal – I adhered a Square Vellum Doily.

I cut my fave design from the Simply Elegant Specialty DSP with a Stitched Rectangle Die and adhered it to the card front with Black Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut a piece of Copper Foil with a smaller Stitched Rectangle Die – embossed it in the Painted Texture folder and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

Using the large foliage die in the Forever Flourishing Die set, I cut a piece of Gold Foil – then adhered the leaves with Liquid Glue.

I tied a small simple bow with the Silver twine from the new Simply Elegant Trim pack and adhered it with a Glue Dot.

I placed a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock into my Stamparatus and, using the Marker-to-Stamp technique – colored and stamped just the first part of the Elegantly Said sentiment with my Basic Gray Stampin’ Write Marker.  Then I cut it with the Rectangle Stitched Die.

I stamped the Elegantly Said floral image in Smoky Slate over top of the sentiment.  Then I used a couple of Black Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop the sentiment onto the card front.

A few silver Metallic Pearls finished it off!

On the inside, I again used my Stamparatus – this time coloring the SECOND half of the sentiment with my Basic Gray Stampin’ Write Marker and stamped it on a Very Vanilla panel.  I added the floral in Smoky Slate and a single silver Metallic Pearl.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Smoky Slate mat and into my Basic Gray card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got the Elegantly Said floral on the front in Smoky Slate…

…and more of the Simply Elegant Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This truly IS Simply Elegant paper, is it not?  And the gorgeous images and sentiments in the Elegantly Said bundle complement it perfectly!

I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Earth Beauty of Friendship Sneak Peek with Video Tutorial

Happy half-way-thru-the-weekend!  Hope it’s going well.  Our planting plans were thwarted by rain most of the day on Saturday.  And I suspect we’ll be thwarted by eveything-is-soaking-wet-and-muddy today.  So…another inside-work day for us, I’m guessing.  Bleh. 😉

If you were able to join me yesterday for my Facebook live, I appreciate you spending part of your weekend with me.  If not, but you’d like to check it out, here’s the replay on YouTube! 🙂

 

This card features a sneak peek at the new Beauty of Friendship stamp set with its bundled Beautiful Trees dies – with the Beauty of the Earth DSP taking center stage!  You’ll be able to get all of it starting on 4 May when the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog goes live.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one was inspired by the sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches this week!

I started with some of the Beauty of the Earth DSP that I cut for a card front – then I cut a smooth-side circle from the middle using a Layering Circles Die.

I matted the DSP panel on Misty Moonlight and Cinnamon Cider mats using Liquid Glue.

I matted the DSP circle on scallop-edge die cuts – in Misty Moonlight and Cinnamon Cider – from the Layering Circles dies.  Then I added it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

The Beautiful Trees dies has two rectangular dies for sentiments.  I used the smaller one to cut a wood-grain piece of DSP from the Beauty of the Earth DSP.

I stamped the Beauty of Friendship sentiment in Cajun Craze on a piece of Basic White and cut it with the second rectangle die in the Beautiful Trees dies – then adhered it to the wood rectangle with Liquid Glue.

Now – my trim uses Crumb Cake and White Baker’s Twine from the brand new Baker’s Twine Combo Pack (it has FIVE rolls of twine!!).  I cut about 16″ of each – two in Crumb Cake and one in White.

I tied them together in a knot and then braided it.  When I got done – I used Glue Dots to adhere the “rope” in a figure-8 loop to the card front.

I added a few double-stacked Stampin’ Dimensionals right by the loops and used them to adhere my sentiment to the card front – and that was it!

On the inside, I added a second sentiment from Beauty of Friendship sentiment in Cajun Craze to a Basic White panel.  In the corner, I stamped the tree trunk image in Early Espresso, added the smaller tree top in Cinnamon Cider (this is SUCH a cool image!).  Then I used the little splotches image to stamp all over in Cajun Craze and Misty Moonlight.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Misty Moonlight and Cinnamon Cider mat and then into my Cajun Craze card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Basic White Medium Envelope got the Beauty of Friendship tree on the front…

…and more of the wood-grain Beauty of the Earth DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This Beauty of the Earth suite is so gorgeous  – with the watercolor-inspired images in the DSP and the wonderful sentiments and trees in the Beauty of Friendship stamp set.  And – I haven’t even really gotten busy with the Beautiful Trees dies!

 

I hope you like!  And – if you love this set…check out my Special Bundle #2: It’s a Beautiful World Bundle.

Stampin’ Up! Quiet Meadow Sneak Peek for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good morning, y’all!  It’s Thursday – which means it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!!  We’ve got a sketch challenge to work with today and I’m excited to see what everyone brings to the table!  I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop today!

When I saw this sketch – I remembered the cool wildflower dies in the new Meadow Die Set – which is coming to you on 4 May, bundled with the lovely new Quiet Meadow stamp set – and knew it would be perfect for this sketch.  Take a look-see:

And here’s our sketch!

I used the colors from The Paper Player challenge, too.

I started with a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock that I embossed in the Old World Paper 3D Embossing Folder and adhered to a Merry Merlot mat with Liquid Glue to create the card front.

Next, I used the largest of the circle Stitched Shapes Dies to cut a Crumb Cake circle.  Y’all – this amazing die set is retiring – so…get it NOW if you don’t have it already! 🙂

I stamped the Quiet Meadow wildflower image onto the Stitched Shape circle.  Over it – I stamped the cool script image twice in Crumb Cake.  Then I adhered the circle to the card front with Liquid Glue.

Using one of the…many!…dies in the Meadow die set…

…I cut one from Vellum cardstock and one from Crumb Cake cardstock.  I embossed the Crumb Cake die cut in the Old World 3D Embossing Folder.  Then I adhered both flowers to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I tied a Linen Thread double-loop bow and added it with a Glue Dot.

The sentiment, from Quiet Meadow, is stamped in Merry Merlot on Very Vanilla and cut with the label die in the Meadow set.  I used the same die to cut a Misty Moonlight piece from the 2020-2022 In Color 6″ x 6″ DSP.  I adhered the two labels together with Liquid Glue, then popped them onto the card front with double-stacked Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I used Glue Dots to adhere three of the new Bee Trinkets (these are coming soon in the new catalog!) and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added the Quiet Meadow wildflower and script images in Crumb Cake to a Crumb Cake panel.

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

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got the Quiet Meadow images on the front in Crumb Cake…

…and more of the Misty Moonlight 2020-2022 In Color 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Y’all!!  This Quiet Meadow set – with it’s wunnermus bundled Meadow Dies – is going to be HUGE!!  I mean – the die set creates so many textural florals – it’s crazy!!  Match it with the sentiments and images in Quiet Meadow and…you’ve got a sure-fire winner!

I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Color & Contour Sneak Peek

Happy Happy HAWWWMP DAY!!  Wheeeeee…..cresting the middle of the week and sliding down the backside to the weekend!  This Saturday I get to do my virtual OnTour Event with Stampin’ Up!  This is a Zoom event – in lieu of in person, cuz…you know!  I’ve heard good things from the folks who’ve already had their event – so….I’m looking forward to it! 🙂 Hope you’ve got something that you’re looking forward to, too! 🙂

I’ve got a Sneak Peek for you today of a cool new bundle from the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog – that you’ll be able to pick up on 4 May!  The stamp set, called Color & Contour, will be bundled with a cool set called Scalloped Contours.  I used both of them and added some Flowers For Every Season DSP  (available right now in the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog – but retiring SOON!).  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from the sketch at the Inspired By challenge.

…and by the inspiration photo from the As You See It Challenge.  This one was also a speed challenge – and this card took me 9:40 to complete (you know – once I’d figured out what I was going to do)! 🙂

I cut a Just Jade piece of paper from the Flowers For Every Season DSP  using the largest Scalloped Contour Die and then I adhered it with Liquid Glue to the front of a Misty Moonlight card base.

On a piece of Basic White, I stamped the flower image from Color & Contour in Just Jade – then I cut it with the largest Stitched Shapes circle die and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I stamped the Color & Contour detailed outline flower three times on Basic White – twice in Bumble Bee and once in Magenta Madness.  I used the fill stamp (this is a two-step set) with the same colors.  I cut the three flowers with the die in the Scalloped Contours set.

I adhered the Magenta Madness and one of the Bumble Bee flowers with Liquid Glue and popped the third flower on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The sentiment, from Color & Contour, is stamped in Misty Moonlight on Basic White, and cut it with the smallest rectangle in the Scalloped Contour die set.  I popped it onto the card front with Dimensionals.

I added Cinnamon Cider or Bumble Bee dots from the 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dots to the middle of the flowers – added a Just Jade dot to the sentiment and the card front was done!

Serious?!  How fun is this set?? I LOVE those scalloped rectangles – and they’re perfectly sized for A2 cards!

On the inside, I stamped the Bumble Bee Color & Contour flowers in the corner of a Basic White panel.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Just Jade mat and into the card base and the card was done!

My Basic White Medium Envelope got the Color & Contour flowers on the front…

..and more of the Flowers For Every Season DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This quick card was easy to make with this new Color & Contour bundle  – and I KNOW you’re going to want it for yourself, just as soon as you can get it – which is 4 May.  Unless, of course, you decided to join the SU! team right now – THEN you could get it – and any of our other pre-order goodies! – right now in your Starter Kit (a huge value in and of itself) and with your cool new 20% discount! 😉

I hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix 

Wayne and I worked outside on Sunday and much of Monday – planting and tidying up the patio off the barn.

At the end of the day on Monday, after we fed, it was so nice outside that we sat out on the patio for a bit.

With Finn, of course – he LOVES that time of night outside!

Wayne – kicking back.

Oh wait – had to adjust the ball cap – sorry!

NOW he looks cool!

Finn don’t need no stinkin’ ball cap to look cool….

Pretty darned nice way to end the day, I have to say! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Ridiculously Awesome Art Gallery for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good morning, y’all!  It’s Thursday – which means it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!!  We’ve got a color challenge to work with today and I’m excited to see what everyone brings to the table!  I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop today!

The color palette of our challenge led me to the Fine Art Floral DSP with its suite-mates, the Art Gallery stamp set and bundled Floral Gallery dies.  I added a couple of big, bold sentiments from the (retiring!) Ridiculously Awesome stamp set.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Boho Indigo Feeling Blue

Happy happy HAWWWMP DAAAAY!!!  Here we go on the downhill side of the week!! Hope yours is going well.

My last couple of cards have been clean-and-simple.  And…I liked them.  I really did.

No – really – that Flowering Cactus Medley is amazing!

But – let’s get real.  CAS isn’t really my jam, right?

So – today, I fell gratefully back into my wheelhouse – with another medley.  This time, it’s the soon-to-be-retiring, gorgeous Boho Indigo Medley!  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Flowering Cactus Life Can Be Prickly!

Good morning, y’all and happy Tuesday!  Hope your week is proceeding apace to the weekend.

Now – let me say, to start out….I hadn’t intended to use the Flowering Cactus Medley two days in a row.

I really hadn’t.  I even second and third guessed my decision.  But – once the card was in my head – I had to make it.  So…I hope you’ll give me a pass!  Take a look-see:

The layout is from the FUSION challenge this week – obviously I used the sketch side!

My friend and teammate, Pam Kean, had sent me a card a while back and I loved it!

On Monday, my eye fell on it again and my brain said…make THAT – but with a cactus.  So – I did!

I started with a piece of Basic White that I embossed in the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder.

Next up, I cut a pretty piece of Flowering Cactus DSP (included in the Medley) using a Stitched So Sweetly rectangle die.

I adhered the die cut to the white panel with Liquid Glue, trimmed the excess with my Paper Trimmer and matted the whole thing on Mint Macaron for the card front.

I used a Stitched Shapes square to cut a Calypso Coral square – then used a Layering Squares die to cut out the middle to create a frame.  Then I snipped the frame on one edge.

I cut another same-size Stitched Shapes square from Mint Macaron and then “wove” the Calypso Coral frame around it – adhering the snipped ends with a little Liquid Glue.

I cut a smaller Stitched Shapes square from Basic White and adhered it with Liquid Glue.  Then I adhered the whole thing over the Stitched So Sweetly DSP piece with Liquid Glue.

I used a die in the Flowering Cactus Medley to cut one of the Calypso Coral-tinged cacti from the Flowering Cactus DSP and popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a narrow strip of Basic White, I stamped the Flowering Cactus sentiment in Mossy Meadow.  Then I popped it across the bottom of the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I used some Glue Dots to adhere a few of the Calypso Coral felt embellishments and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a second Flowering Cactus sentiment in Mossy Meadow.  Next to it, in stamped-off-once Calypso Coral, I added a pretty double-flower.

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

My Basic White Medium Envelope got the flower image again – but in full strength Calypso Coral – on the front…

…and more of the Flowering Cactus DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  So…can you forgive me??  I really love how this turned out (thanks, Pam, for the inspiration!) and I am really REALLY loving all the pieces and parts that you get when you snap up the Flowering Cactus Medley!!

I hope you like!

If you’d like to recreate this card, all the products and card cuts are listed below!

Just a little look at some “Spring” around the farm!

Really pretty long-view of the pasture with the girls.

A little closer – can’t help it – I love this time of year, here!  Of course, I’m also a little partial to those golden girls in the late afternoon sunshine! 🙂

And…the camera lens filters out the massive clouds of yellow pollen floating all over here and there!

Stampin’ Up! Succulent Queen Ann’s Lace & Dragonflies with Video Tutorial

Good morning! And happy Sunday!  I hope you’re having a great weekend – maybe warming up a bit?  We had a gorgeous day yesterday and spent much of it getting mulch from the landfill (I know – it’s a glamorous life we lead – don’t be envious!) and getting our two new beds in place.  Today I think we have to hit Sam’s to see if we can exchange our mixed-gender Martha Washington asparagus for more all-boy-all-the-time Jersey Giants.  See?  Glamour glamour! 😉

If you were able to spend some of your weekend with me on my Facebook Live video last night, I appreciate it!  If not, here’s the replay on YouTube!
