Stampin’ Up! Boho Indigo Birthday Locking Gate Card with Video Tutorial!

Happy Friday, y’all!  I hope your week went well – our did.  And it went fast.  Like…Warp Factor Four, Mr. Sulu-fast.  What the heck??!  I mean – seriously, just last week I was 28 – and then…I was 29 in the blink of an eye.  At this rate I’ll be 60 before this time next year!

See…THAT’S funny cuz I actually WILL be 60 this time next year – with or without Warp-Speed-Time-Passing! 😉

If you were able to join me yesterday for my YouTube live, I appreciate you spending some time with me – if not, but you’d like to see the replay, here ’tis! 🙂

This is a gate card – without a bellyband.  Instead, it’s got a unique “locking mechanism” that holds the card closed.

As you can see – I did two versions.  The one on the right uses pieces that were leftover from putting my June Box of Sunshine Paper Pumpkin together – cool, huh?

That one was inspired by the sketch challenge over at Tuesday Morning Sketches.

I first saw this fun-fold when I got a birthday card from my friend Elisha Smith – then I took a peek at Amanda Chatsworth’s video.  And then – I modified it all a little bit to work as an A2 sized card and fit a Medium Envelope.

I started by creating a regular gate card – 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ scored and folded at 2 1/8″ from each short end.  I used Basic Black for the lemons card and Misty Moonlight for the Boho Indigo card.

I adhered Artistry Blooms DSP or Boho Indigo DSP to their mats – Daffodil Delight or Very Vanilla – with Liquid Glue and then used Liquid Glue to adhere them to the “gates”.

The locking mechanism – which also functions as the card front – is created with four pieces of the mat-colored card stock – all the same size (2 5/8″ x 4 3/8″).  On two of the panels – I scored and folded them at 1 5/16″ on the short side.

I used Liquid Glue to “sandwich” the two folded panels between the other two panel to create an “X”.  Best way is to check the video – fast forward to about the 13 minute mark! 🙂

Once the “mechanism” was complete – it was just a matter of decorating!

The lemon card uses a black/dotted sticker and some die cuts from the Box of Sunshine Paper Pumpkin kit  I tied a little bow from the black/white twine in the Playful Pets Trim Combo Pack and adhered it with a Glue Dot.  The sentiment on that one is from the Fancy Phrases set – stamped in Rich Razzleberry on Whisper White.  It’s adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added some of the adhesive-backed sequins from the kit as well!

On the Boho Indigo card, I adhered another piece of the Boho Indigo DSP to the mat.  Then I stamped the sentiment – also from the medley – on one of the pretty vanilla/gold die cut tags (from the medley – there is a LOT in this medley, y’all!).  I looped a piece of Night of Navy 1/2″ Frayed Grosgrain Ribbon thru the top and tied it with a length of gold twine from the Forever Greenery Ribbon Combo Pack.

I used some of the pretty leaves die cuts from the medley, adhering them to the card front with Liquid Glue – then popped the sentiment on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added some foil flowers AND some of the sweet little Paper Flowers with Liquid Glue.  Finally – I added some Gold Glitter Enamel Dots cuz it seemed like the right thing to do! 🙂

On the inside – I added a sentiment from Fancy Phrases in Rich Razzleberry to a Whisper White panel.  I adhered another leaf and a lemon with Liquid Glue and trimmed the excess with Paper Snips.  Then I adhered it into the Lemon card.

For the inside of the Boho Indigo card, I just stamped a Very Vanilla panel with the leaves image from the medley stamp set in Garden Green – stamping a couple of times without re-inking.  I matted it on Very Vanilla.

For the Whisper White Medium Envelope for my Lemon card got a sweet little flower from Fancy Phrases in Tuxedo Black and colored it with my Daffodil Delight and Granny Apple Green Watercolor Pencils.  I added Artistry Blooms DSP to the envelope flap.

On the front of the Very Vanilla Medium Envelope, I added more leaves from Boho Indigo in Garden Green – and then added the DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This is a pretty easy fold – the mechanism is the only “hard” part – and it’s not very hard, either, once you see how it’s done!  If you’ve got the June Box of Sunshine kit – I hope this will give you some ideas about more fun projects to make with those extra pieces.  And – you NEED to get the Boho Indigo Product Medley if you don’t have it already.  It is simply amazing!!

I hope you like! 😉

There’s less than a week left in the month of June, y’all – which means less than a week to take advantage of the Pick a Free Bundle Joining Special and the Catalog Kickoff Ordering Celebration to get those extra Stampin’ Rewards!  Don’t miss out!

Finn Fan Fix


The other day, I couldn’t find Finn.

Which was weird, cuz I knew he’d come in with me.

I’d taken his collar off.

I remembered it clearly.

But…he was disappeared.

I looked all over – even started to wonder about alien abductions.  Wormholes opening in the living room.

I gave Katy the side-eye…what did you do to your brother?

And then – I found him.

To be clear – I walked by him twice looking for him (it’s actually dark in there – this is a flash shot).  That’s a tiny little hallway to our third bedroom.  From the kitchen looking towards the back of the house – he was completely invisible.

He truly couldn’t have shoe-horned himself any deeper into that tiny little cranny!

Stampin’ Up! Comfort & Hope Sneak Peek With Video Tutorial

Happy Friday!!  I hope you’ve had an awesome week.  Headed into a long weekend!  So…put on your 3-day weekend pajamas!  🙂

If you were able to join me for my YouTube video yesterday – I appreciate you spending some of your day with me!  If not, but you’d like to see the replay…here ’tis!

This card is a sneak peek of the new Comfort & Hope set from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.  And it’s a sweet one – especially when paired with some wonderful textural paper from the In Good Taste DSP (also coming on 3 Jun in the new catalog).  Take a look-see:

The color palette for this one is from the Global Design Project color challenge this week.

I started with a piece of stucco-looking paper from the new In Good Taste DSP (I can’t wait for you to get a good look at this paper in person – it’s amazing!) and began to build my “ink collage”.

In Blushing Bride, I stamped the wreath image from the Comfort & Hope set.  Then I started adding leaves in stamped-off-once Pretty Peacock and faceted gems (not real – stamped!) in full strength Pretty Peacock.

The grid pattern stamped image is done in Soft Sea Foam – as are the little dots. These are all images from Comfort & Hope!  I also added a couple of leaves in Soft Sea Foam.

Once all the stamping was done, I cut a Stitched Rectangle die from the middle of the panel and matted that die cut on Pretty Peacock.  I used Liquid Glue to adhere the remaining “frame” to a Pretty Peacock mat.  Then I popped the cut out back onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I tied a medium-sized simple bow with the gold trim from the new Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack (available 3 Jun) and adhered it with a Glue Dot.

On a piece of Whisper White, I stamped the sentiment from Comfort & Hope in Pretty Peacock.  I added a grid image and some dots in Soft Sea Foam, and a few “faceted gems” in Pretty Peacock.  Then I cut it out with the Timeless Label Punch.

I popped the sentiment onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals, added a few Gold Metallic Pearls – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a second sentiment in Pretty Peacock to a Whisper White panel.  Then I inked and stamped more collage images in Blushing Bride, Pretty Peacock and Soft Sea Foam.

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more collage elements on the front…

…and some of the In Good Taste DSP – stamped with Comfort & Hope images – on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I love that this pretty Comfort & Hope set is so conducive to creating stamped collages!  The sentiments are also pretty perfect – especially for the times we’re in, huh?

And how cool does it look stamped on the In Good Taste DSP!??  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Field of Flowers Sneak Peek for Every Season

Happy Tuesday, y’all!  I’ve heard from a few folks who have received their catalogs from me – so…if you think you were on my list – be checking your mailboxes!  The USPS moved them pretty fast! 🙂

My card today is one that I made with my Pre-Order goodies which, oh-by-the-way!, YOU could select as part of your Starter Kit if you join right now (instead of waiting until the 3rd of JUNE!!)!  Ask me how!

No.  Really.  Ask me how and join the team!

You know you want to! 😉

Anywho – I pulled out the Field Of Flowers stamp set and combined it with some paper from the Flowers For Every Season DSP and the coordinating Memories & More Card Pack.  Take a look-see:

Easy peasy – and not a fussy-cut in sight! 😉

The layout for this one hails from the As You See It Challenge this week.

I started with a Just Jade card from the new Flowers For Every Season Memories & More Cards & Envelopes pack.

For the card front, I matted a piece of Flowers For Every Season DSP on a piece of Bumble Bee card stock.  Then I cut a coordinating piece with a Stitched Rectangle Die and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I matted a strip of yet another design from the Flowers For Every Season DSP on Bumble Bee and adhered it with Liquid Glue.  Then I wrapped a piece of the open weave ribbon from the new Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack around it – adhering it in the back with a couple of Glue Dots.

I cut down one of the small cards in the Flowers For Every Season Memories & More Card Pack.  Then I stamped the pretty sentiment from Field of Flowers in Shaded Spruce and matted it on Bumble Bee.

I popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals, added a Bumble Bee 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dot and the card front was done!

On the inside, on a Very Vanilla panel, I stamped a second sentiment from Field of Flowers in Shaded Spruce.  In the corner, I added the stems in Shaded Spruce and the sweet wild-flowers image in Crushed Curry.  And…I thought I was done.  But then…I spied with my little eye…the dragonflies in the set!  Love dragonfly images, so…on they went in Tuxedo Black!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Bumble Bee mat and into the Flowers For Every Season Memories & More Card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

The pre-printed envelope from the Flowers For Every Season Memories & More Cards & Envelopes got more of the Field of Flowers flowers on the front…

…and the flap is already decorated on the inside, so…done!

Et Voila!  You guys – I LOVE this Field of Flowers stamp set!  The big focal sentiment “always”, in the gorgeous font, is designed to work in combination with the other words and phrases in the set.  And…the flowers are wonderful!

And there is no denying the beauty of the Flowers for Every Season DSP, is there??

I hope you like!

The new Flowers for Every Season Suite (coming soon – like 3 Jun –  in the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog!) is the DSP that showcases the new 2020-2022 In Colors.  This gorgeous, flower-strewn paper, showcases the new colors perfectly.  I used it – and the coordinating Flowers For Every Season Memories & More Card Pack – to make a super easy fun fold card for you.  Take a look-see:

How pretty is that paper?  Every one of the new In Colors – prefectly blended by the genius Stampin’ Up! designers!

This card is super easy!  I started with a regular 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ card base and scored and folded it at 2 1/8″ and again at 6 3/8″.

Next, I matted two pieces of the Flowers for Every Season DSP on Just Jade card stock (Bumble Bee for the video card) and then adhered them to the gates with Liquid Glue.

I used Memories & More Card Pack elements – matted on Just Jade (or Bumble Bee) – for the panels.  Each panel was cut down to fit.  When I adhered the panels – the top one is adhered on the left-side gate and the bottom sentiment panel is adhered only on the right-hand gate.

I tied a little bow out of the one of the new 2020-2022 In Color RIbbons and adhered it with a Glue Dot.  A 2020-2022 Enamel Dot finished off the card front!

On the inside, I matted a Whisper White panel on the appropriate mat-color and then into the card base with Liquid Glue.  Then I added one of the pretty stickers from the Flowers for Every Season Memories & More Card Pack.  And…that was it for the card.  Easy peasy!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another of the flower stickers on the front…

…and a little more of the DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I love this beautiful Flowers for Every Season DSP – it looks like a wonderful cottage garden – a new one on every sheet!  And the Memories & More Card Pack (not just for scrapbooking!) is amazing – chock-a-block full of designs in small and large formats, flower, leaves and sentiment stickers, and sentiments!!  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! You Always Deliver Sunshine for The Paper Players

Hey y’all – it’s Sunday, which means I’ve got another fun challenge for you from the Paper Players – it’s a theme challenge from our clever Joanne this week and it’ll for sure jump-start your creative mojo!  I hope you’ll come and play along.  🙂

If you were able to join me yesterday for my Facebook Live video, I appreciate you spending some of your weekend with me!  If you weren’t able to watch the live version, but you’d like to see the replay on YouTube…here ’tis!

Our theme this week – and yours, too, if you come to play – is Make You Smile.  I know that for so many of us, the sight of the Big Brown Truck pulling up ALWAYS make us smile (I know it does for me!).  So – I pulled out the retiring You Always Deliver stamp set.  And, since I alway smile at a good pun or cute sentiment – I used one of the cute sentiments from the Share Sunshine COVID-19 Digital download.  Take a look-see:

And here’s this week’s Paper Players theme challenge!  Hope you’ll join the fun and show us your projects!  I can’t wait to see what you create!  🙂

I pulled my layout from the Global Design Project sketch this week.

I decided this would be a great card to try out the Scrappy Strip technique that I learned from the wunnermus Bruno Bertucci (yes – of the Kylie/Bruno super-duo!!).

I started with a larger-than-I-needed piece of Basic Black cardstock to create the card front.  Using Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, Early Espresso and Sahara Sand paper from the Neutrals 6″ x 6″ DSP (which I just now at this very moment realized is SOLD OUT – I’m so sorry!), I adhered the strips to the panel with Liquid Glue.  I eye-balled the spacing and used three of each color to create to ombre effect of the sketch!

Once I had all the strips where they belonged, I used my Paper Trimmer to cut the panel down to size. Then I adhered it onto a Basic Black mat.

I tied a loose figure-eight from a doubled up length of the 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

On a piece of Whisper White, I stamped the You Always Deliver delivery dude in Tuxedo Black and colored him with my Soft Suede and Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blend Combos.  I added the heart image in Poppy Parade – and cut him with an oval Stitched Shapes Die.

Using the Share Sunshine PDF that I downloaded (get yours right here!), I printed the page I wanted on a piece of Whisper White.  Then I used a Stitched Rectangle Die to cut out the Black version of the fun sentiment I wanted.  I decided it needed another heart, so I used the Poppy Parade Stampin’ Write Marker to color one onto the die cut.

I popped the two die cuts onto the card front – over the Linen Trim – with Black Stampin’ Dimensionals.  And the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped the perfectly perfect sentiment from You Always Deliver in Tuxedo Black on a Whisper White panel.  In the corner, I added the sweet pooch from the set in Tuxedo Black and colored him in Crumb Cake and Soft Suede.  I added some more hearts in Poppy Parade.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Basic Black Mat and into my Poppy Parade card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another You Always Deliver pupper and hearts on the front…

…and some Soft Suede paper on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  It’s kind of a shame that the You Always Deliver is going away – cuz…it SO represents us as crafters, doesn’t it?? Without the guy in the big brown truck….sigh.  No big brown boxes of Stampin’ Up! goodies to see arrive in the driveway!

I hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix


So – as the child of an Air Force pilot, Finn was….disappointed…to not get to go with us yesterday!

We went to Costco.  Cuz…after looking at the planned flight path for the Thunderbirds/Blue Angels joint fly-over, it was pretty obvious we’d never even see them from here.  But – we knew we’d be shopping after – and…too hot for fur kids! 🙁

It turned out we were far from the only ones there!

This is what AirShows-in-the-Time-of-COVID-19 look like, I guess!

We did have some special spectators – I was happy to see them and get a chance to thank them for what they do for us every day.

As they drove in – everyone got out of their cars and gave them a standing ovation.  There might have been some whoo-hooing going on, too!

They had AWESOME seats!!

Finally – after I had a chance to run into Costco to get a couple of lavender plant/trees – here they came!!

They actually made two passes….to be honest, thru the camera, I could never find the Thunderbirds.  Their F-16’s are predominantly white and were very very hard to see in the bright afternoon sun – and thru the camera?  Nope.

Also?  Only the Angels – in their Navy Blue livery – were easily visible.   They’re also the only part of the formation that popped smoke on their passes.

On the second pass, I tried to take some video.

But…that really didn’t work out at all…. 🙁

It was really cool to see them – it’s almost unheard of for both teams to fly together like this, so…pretty amazing to see! And they quite obviously took great pains to give as many folks in the metro area a chance to see them as they could.  Kudos and a virtual salute to our men and women in the skty

Finn?

Well.  HE was upside down, legs akimbo – sawing logs when we got home.  I guess the movie I left running wasn’t interesting enough to keep him awake!!

My fierce guard dog…

Stampin’ Up! Good Morning Magnolia Fun Fold with Video Tutorial

Happy Friday!!  Hope it’s been a good week for you. We’re just doing the self-isolation/quarantine thing…how about you?  Besides card making – what fun things are you doing to keep yourself busy (and sane!) as we head into the 765th weekend of The COVID-19 Crisis??

If you were able to join me for my YouTube video – I appreciate you spending some of your day with me!  If not, but you’d like to see the replay…here ’tis!

As you can see from the photo above – this card is based on the wonderful Magnolia Lane Suite – the Good Morning Magnolia bundle (with the Magnolia Memories Die set) and gorgeous Magnolia Lane DSP!  I created a fun-fold that looks a lot like an envelope so…that’s what I’m calling it!  Take a look-see:

The layout – that I turned into a fun-fold! – was inspired by this week’s Tuesday Morning Sketches challenge.

I started with a 5 1/2″ x 11″ piece of Mossy Meadow cardstock that I scored and folded at 2 5/8″ and again at 6 7/8″ for the card base.

On the smaller panel, I measured and marked the half-way point (2 3/4″) and used my Paper Trimmer to cut the point.

.

I used the same technique (measure half-way down the long side and cut to the point) to create the Petal Pink mat (2 1/2″ x 5 1/4″) and the Magnolia Lane DSP (2 3/8″ x 4 7/8″) panel.  Note – this part of the card is at about the 7:35 mark in the video! 🙂

Then I adhered the pieces together and to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I adhered a different design of the DSP to a larger Petal Pink mat and then to the larger panel on the front.

For the sentiment, I inked the Good Morning Magnolia sentiment in Versamark Ink and stamped it on a piece of Basic Black card stock. I sprinkled it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat set it with my Heat Tool.  When it was cool, I cut it out with a Stitched So Sweetly label die.

Using the small flower die in the Magnolia Memories Die set – I cut a magnolia blossom from one of the designs in the Magnolia Lane DSP.  I used the leaves dies to cut three Mossy Meadow leaves.

Using Liquid Glue – I adhered the flower to the sentiment label and the leaves to the underside of the label.

I used Black Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the sentiment to the point of the envelope fold – being sure to leave room for my ribbon to slide through to create my closure.

I added some Pearl Basic Jewels to the label – and the card front was done!

For the inside, I stamped the small flower from Good Morning Magnolia in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a Whisper White panel.  I colored the bloom with my Petal Pink and Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blends Combo.  Then I added a sentiment in Mossy Meadow.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Petal Pink mat and into my card base – and the card was done!

I slid a length of ribbon (either Petal Pink 5/16″ Organdy Striped Ribbon or the linen ribbon from the Magnolia Lane Ribbon Combo Pack – which is retiring and on sale!!) under the label and tied a bow to create the closure for the card.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another Good Morning Magnolia blossom on the front…

…and some more Magnolia Lane DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This is a super easy fold – once you know the dimensions for the pointy flap, right?  I love how it lets you showcase some gorgeous DSP like the Retiring-soon Magnolia Lane paper (and – it’s got a GREAT price right now)!  I hope you like!

And I’m SO happy that the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set and coordinating Magnolia Memories Dies are carrying over!

Do remember, though – that the BUNDLE pricing (with its 10% Savings) WILL go away when this catalog ends.  You’ll have to purchase the stamp set and dies separately in the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog!

Just sayin’….

Some days?  The quarantining is just…too much for a guy.  The humans need too much attention.  Too much love.  Too much…everything.

And you have to go sit out in a clearing by yourself and watch the birds and bugs.  And maybe a deer.  A little Me time.

Just for a bit.
