Stampin’ Up! Buffalo Check Pretty Perennials with Video Tutorial

Good morning and happy Friday!  Again!  My, how the weeks do fly by!  We’ve noticed that the days are getting longer – it was still light when we got in after feeding the horses last night – at about 6:45pm…  Whooo-hooo!!  Early sunrise and late sunset – my time of year!!

If you were able to join me for my YouTube live yesterday, I appreciate you spending part of your day with me.  If not, here’s the replay!

I saw a color challenge and it made me think Spring!  So – I decided to create Spring on a card.  The Pretty Perennial bundle – with the wonderful Perennial Petals die set – seemed like the way to go!  And then I pulled out my Buffalo Check background to get it started.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge!

And here’s that color palette – from the Sunday Stamps challenge!

Finally – my sentiment dovetails perfectly into the Just Add Ink challenge this week.

I started by stamping the Buffalo Check background onto a piece of Basic White cardstock in Daffodil Delight ink.  Hint: You’ll want to use your Stamparatus for this – it makes getting a nice, clear image easy and peasy! Check out the video to see how I positioned the panel in the Stamparatus to get it just right the first time. 🙂

Then I adhered the panel onto a Mango Melody mat to create the card front.

On a smaller panel of Basic White, I used a few of the Pretty Perennials flower images – well, I guess they’re more like flower CENTERS! – to stamp an ever-so-artsy “designer series paper” – in Daffodil Delight and Mango Melody.

Then I cut the panel into three equal-sized pieces and adhered them to a Mango Melody mat – eyeballing the separation- with Liquid Glue.  Tip:  glue the two end pieces first to get their spacing from the edges correct – then add the third panel, “splitting” the difference between the first two.

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

I stamped three flowers from Pretty Perennials in Daffodil Delight and Mango Melody and cut them with their matching dies in the Perennial Petals die set.  I cut detailed flowers and centers in Mango Melody and Daffodil Delight cardstock and some leaves in Gray Granite.

I stacked the flowers as you can see, using Liquid Glue to adhere the pieces together.

To build the collage, I started with the leaf then built up from there, adding all the parts with Liquid Glue.

For the sentiment, I stamped both Pretty Perennial sentiments in Poppy Parade on Basic White and fussy cut them.  Tip:  a really good pair of scissors – like our Paper Snips – really helps here! 😉

 

I popped the two sentiments on with Stampin’ Dimensionals – including some tiny pieces under the “tails” in the “happy” sentiment.

I colored three Opal Rounds with my Dark Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blend and popped them into the middle of the flowers and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped a second Pretty Perennials sentiment in Poppy Parade on a Basic White panel.  Then I added more of the flower centers in Daffodil Delight and Mango Melody.

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

My Basic White Medium Envelope got more Pretty Perennial flowers on the front….

…and then I used some Poppy Parade paper from the Brights 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  What a pretty Spring garden you can make with the Pretty Perennials bundle – those Perennial Petals flower dies are so much fun!  And…Buffalo Check?  A…”perennial” favorite!!  Yep.  I did that!

I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up Snailed It Happy Mail

Happy President’s Day, y’all!  Hope you’ve got the day off and have something enjoyable planned!  Like – maybe you’ll decide to make a card to send to a friend.  Well – tomorrow.  No mail today! 🙂

You might want to send a little happy mail and the card I’ve got for you today would be a great one to make!  It uses the sweet Snailed It bundle with the Snail Dies and the Snail Mail DSP!  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one was inspired by the Freshly Made Sketches challenge this week.

And the envelopes elements are from this week’s CASology Cue Card.

I started with a Real Red panel that I embossed in the Dainty Diamonds 3D Embossing Folder and then adhered to the front of my Real Red card base with Liquid Glue.

Next, I matted to pieces of Snail Mail DSP to Bermuda Bay panels and adhered them at jaunty angles with Liquid Glue.

Using the envelope die in the Snail Dies set, I cut two Basic White and one Bermuda Bay pieces.   I folded up the white envelopes, “sealing” them with a Glue Dot.  With the Bermuda Bay piece, I left the top flap up.

On a piece of Basic White, I stamped the Snailed It sentiment in Bermuda Bay and cut it with the little stitched rectangle in the Snail Dies.

I slid the little “note” into the Bermuda Bay envelope and stuck it in place with a little Liquid Glue.  Then I adhered the two white envelopes to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I used the little heart dies in the Snail Dies to cut Real Red hearts – and adhered one to each of the envelopes with Liquid Glue.

I used some Stampin’ Dimensionals to stick the Bermuda Bay envelope over top of the white ones.

I added a few red Resin Hearts to the card front and it was done

On the inside, I added a word bubble from Snailed It in Bermuda Bay to a Basic White panel.  I adhered a Real Red die cut heart to the inside.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Bermuda Bay mat and into my Real Red card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Basic White Medium Envelope got another image from Snailed It on the front.  I used my Stamparatus and inked the image with my Bermuda Bay and Real Red Stampin’ Write Markers.

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

Et Voila!  I love the Snailed It stamp set and the fun little envelope die in the bundled Snail Dies is way too cute!!  It all comes together with the Snail Mail DSP to create all manner of adorable cards!

I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Tranquil Thoughts 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!

I thought that the colors we had to choose from – we got five and were to pick at least 3! – would be a perfect opportunity to show off the pretty Tranquil Thoughts bundle.  So..that’s what I did!  Take a look-see:

And – here’s our challenge badge – you can see I picked Seaside Spray, Misty Moonlight and Highland Heather.

And I borrowed some inspiration for the layout from the sketch challenge from CAS Colours & Sketches.

I started with a piece of Seaside Spray paper from the 2019-2021 In Color 6″ x 6″ DSP that I matted on Highland Heather cardstock for the card front.

Next, I cut a smaller Basic White panel.  Using my Blending Brushes, I first blended Seaside Spray ink around the edges – letting it come in to the center, but leaving it mostly open.  Then I followed up with some Highland Heather blending.

In the middle of the panel, I stamped a Tranquil Thoughts sentiment in Highland Heather.  Then I adhered the panel to the card front with Liquid Glue.

Using the big die in the Tranquil Die set, I cut two of the cuts in Misty Moonlight.  I stacked them together with Liquid Glue – then popped them over the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Tip:  don’t be shy with the dimensionals – use them generously, and cut some little pieces to support the smaller leaves. 😉

I looped some Misty Moonlight/Silver twine (from the Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack) into a loose figure-8 and adhered it to the card front with Glue Dots.

I had a blue butterfly (squint yer eyes, I’m pretty sure it’s Misty Moonlight.  And…some other color pretty darned close!!) in my bowl of dies cuts.  This is cut from some of the Butterfly Bijou 6″ x 6″ DSP cut with the big die in the Brilliant Wings Dies.  These are both coming on 2 March!  He was just calling me – so…on he went with a little Liquid Glue.

I used my Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush on the wings of the butterfly – and around the edges of the big die cut – like a shadow on the card front.  Finally, I added some Opal Rounds and the card front was done!

On the inside, I used several of the leaves images in Tranquil Thoughts in Misty Moonlight and Seaside Spray around the edges of a Basic White panel.  Then I brushed Seaside Spray and Highland Heather around the panel with Blending Brushes.

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

My Basic White Medium Envelope got more of the Tranquil Thoughts leaves on the front…

…and more of the Seaside Spray 2019-2021 In Color 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I know – you probably figured I’d use Rococo Rose and Old Olive with this set.  But…I really like how it looks in these colors, don’t you?  Tranquil Thoughts has some really pretty sentiments – love the fonts and the words! – and the die cuts in the bundled Tranquil Dies are wunnermus!  The possibilities are endless with this bundle!!

I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Fine Art Floral Gallery Easy Card Set with Video Tutorial!

Good morning and happy Friday!  Hoping that your week went well – and that you’re ready for a weekend.  Not for nuthin’ – this is National Corn Chip Day.  Pretty sure that there’s no calories if you’re CELEBRATING a National Day.  So…go forth and eat corn chips!

What does that have to do with card making or today’s card?  Absolutely.  Nothing! 😉

I’ve got a whole set of pretty cards for you today – that would be perfect for gifting.  Or…keeping for yourself!  If you were able to join me for my YouTube live yesterday, I appreciate you spending part of your day with me!  If not, here’s the replay!

I used the Art Gallery Bundle and pretty (okay – it’s actually GORGEOUS!) Fine Art Floral DSP to make 6 cards that cover multiple occasions.  And I did it quick – thanks to my awesome and amazing Stamparatus.  Take a look-see:

The layout that I used is from The Paper Players challenge this week:

I created the cards and envelopes in 6 different color combinations….

The video shows the process pretty well – but…here we go!

I started with a piece of the Fine Art Floral DSP in a coordinating color for each of the card combinations – and matted them on the appropriate colored cardstock.  The mats for the card fronts and inner liners are in Terracotta Tile, Poppy Parade, Misty Moonlight, Bumble Bee, Blackberry Bliss and Night of Navy.

Next, I cut a piece of Basic White cardstock with the largest Stitched So Sweetly rectangle die.  Then I placed it in my Stamparatus and stamped the large flower from Art Gallery.  This is a 3-step stamped image.

Step 1:  largest (least detailed) image:  stamped in Terracotta Tile, Poppy Parade, Balmy Blue, Daffodil Delight, Rich Razzleberry, or Misty Moonlight.

Step 2: next largest (more detailed) image: stamped in Merry Merlot, Cajun Craze, Misty Moonlight, Bumble Bee, Blackberry Bliss or Night of Navy.

Step 3: smallest and most detailed image: stamped in Merry Merlot, Cajun Craze, Misty Moonlight, Bumble Bee, Blackberry Bliss or Night of Navy.

I popped the art panels onto the card fronts with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped various sentiments from the Art Gallery set in the same colors that I’d used for the Step 2 and Step 3 flower images and cut them with the label dies in Floral Gallery.  The sentiments are popped on with Dimensionals.

I colored 6 Rhinestone Basic Jewels for each card, using the Dark Stampin’ Blend from the Terracotta Tile, Poppy Parade, Misty Moonlight, Daffodil Delight, Blackberry Bliss or Night of Navy Blend Combos.  I put three of them on the card front and that was it!

On the inside, I stamped the flower again in the bottom left corner of a Basic White panel and added the other three colored Rhinestones.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panels to their coordinating mats, popped the card fronts on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the cards were done.

My Basic White Medium Envelopes got the Art Gallery flowers on the front…

…and more of the Fine Art Floral DSP on the envelope flaps.

This is a pretty little set of cards – and they’d make for a really sweet gift!  Simply wrap the bundle in a little Blackberry Bliss Striped Ribbon and tie a pretty bow!

Et Voila!  Clean.  Simple.  Quick.  Easily repeatable.  TOTALLY not a typical “Mary-card”, right? 😉 But – the Fine Art Bundle with its Floral Gallery Dies has all the pretty flowers and sentiments for so many occasions!

And there’s no doubting the gorgeousness of the Fine Art Floral DSP!

I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Beauty Abounds on Dandelions!

Well – good morning and Happy Happy HAWWWMP Day!

These are words that are scaring me a little!  It means…I’ve only got three more days – including TODAY!! – to get my cards all ready – links prepped for next week’s blog hop – and (hopefully!) some work-ahead on blog posts done!  Why?  Cuz – I’m goin’ to the chapel and my friend is gettin’ maaarrried….goin’ to the chapel-which-is-really-an-event-center and my friend is gettin’ maaaarrried!

Yes – it’s here!  Matt and Katelyn are getting married on Sunday at a gorgeous vineyard/event center up north of us!  Going to spend the weekend and probably do some crying.  Note to self: go buy waterproof mascara!!

I’m excited for them – I know it’s going to be gorgeous.  And will post some pictures if they’ll let me!

So.  Card.  Focus.

I pulled an older stamp set from the shelf for today’s card – it’s the Beauty Abounds set with the coordinating Butterfly Beauty die set.  I set the whole thing atop some Flowers for Every Season DSP and a Dandelions 3D-embossed panel.  Take a look-see:

The reason that I gravitated to Beauty Abounds for this one is thanks to the inspiration from the Just Us Girls Wild-Card challenge.

And I pulled my layout from the CAS(E) This Sketch challenge.

I started with a same-size-as-the-front-of-the-card piece of Flowers for Every Season DSP that I adhered to the front of my Early Espresso card base with Liquid Glue.  Hint: be sure that the panel is straight and doesn’t need to be trimmed down at all BEFORE you decorate it. 😉

Don’t ask how I know.  Cuz I know that you know how I know.

You know??

I used a smaller panel of Whisper White and embossed it in one of my FAVORITE embossing folders – the Dandelions 3D Embossing Folder (which you could choose if you take advantage of my Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine Ordering Special!).  I matted that panel on Just Jade and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I stamped the sweet sentiment from Beauty Abounds in Just Jade on Whisper White and cut it with one of the Ornate Frames sentiment label dies – then I popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

From some Rainbow Glimmer Paper, I cut a few large and small butterflies with the Butterfly Beauty dies – the larger die cuts are part of the large detailed die – I used Paper Snips to separate out the two big butterflies that I wanted.

I lightly curled the wings of the larger die cut butterflies and adhered everything with Liquid Glue.

And resisted the urge to add…anything!…and called the card front good!

On the inside, I added another full-size panel of Flowers for Every Season with Liquid Glue.

On a Whisper White panel, I added a second sentiment from Beauty Abounds in Just Jade.  Then I stamped a couple of butterflies in stamped-off-once Magenta Madness ink.  Then I added some of the smaller bokeh-dots image in Mango Melody.  Hint:  my ink pad is needing some re-inking, so the image is quite faint, even at full strength.  Double check yours and be sure it’s light enough – if not, stamp it off once on scrap paper first!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Just Jade mat and onto the inside of the card – and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another couple of butterflies and bokeh dots on the front…

…and more of the Flowers for Every Season DSP on the envelope flap.  Hint:  there IS an up and a down on this paper.  Just sayin’! 😉

Et Voila!  I’ve been so caught up in the Aug – Dec 2020 Mini Catalog that it’s easy to forget about some of the beautiful sets in the “big” catalog!  But…don’t be like me!  Beauty Abounds is just as gorgeous now as it was when it came out – and the coordinating Butterfly Beauty Die set is…stunning!

And don’t forget that you could get the amaze-balls Dandelions 3D Embossing Folder for FREE – plus DOUBLE Peppermints right now during my Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine Ordering Special!!

I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Life is Beautiful Hello for The Paper Players

Hey y’all – it’s Sunday, which means I’ve got another fun challenge for you from the Paper Players – Ann’s got a fun Tic-Tac-Toe challenge for us this week!  🙂  I LOVE Tic-Tac-Toe challenges and I know it’ll give YOUR creative mojo a bump, too!  So I hope you’ll come and play along with us!

One of the cool perks for Stampin’ Up! demonstrators who hit $1M in career sales is the opportunity to work with SU! designers and create “their” stamp set.  Hmmm… assuming I EVER got there…Australian Shepherd?  Under some Pine Trees?  With a Pony??  Sounds amazing!

I used one of those $1M Sales Achiever sets today – it’s called the Life is Beautiful set.  It’s a bit of a CASE from the Aug – Dec 2020 Mini Catalog samples!  I paired it with a Celebration Labels die,  some Poinsettia Place DSP and the lovely Gold Cards and Envelopes.  Take a look-see:

 

And…here’s our Paper Players Tic-Tac-Toe challenge this week – I do hope you’ll come and play along with us!  Let’s see…I went across the top, down the right side, thru the mid….oh.  Huh.  If I’d made my sentiment a Thank You…I’d have had Yahtzee!! 😉

I played along with the Inspire. Create. challenge….

And it also played well with the Global Design Project challenge!

I started with one of the Gold Cards (check these out on page 51 in the mini – they’re gorgeous!) for my card base.  I adhered a panel of wood-grain Poinsettia Place DSP at an angle using Liquid Glue.

Next, I embossed a piece of Very Vanilla in the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it as well with Liquid Glue.

Using my Stamparatus, I stamped the tree trunk image from Life Is Beautiful in Soft Suede ink.  Then I added some of the stylized flowers/leaves in stamped-off-once Terracotta Tile, and full strength Mango Melody and Bumble Bee.  For each of the colors, I stamped the image twice without re-inking (that helps to give depth and more colors – without using more colors!).

Then I added the sweet birdhouse in Soft Suede – and cut the image with the third-from-smallest (that’s the middle sized die!) Celebration Labels Dies – making sure the tree “spilled” off the edge.

On another small piece of Very Vanilla, I stamped the birdhouse image again in stamped-off-once Terracotta Tile ink and fussy cut just the house.  That little house got popped over the stamped image with a Stampin’ Dimensional.

I used Stampin’ Seal Adhesive to add two short lengths of Terracotta Tile ribbon from the Ornate Garden Ribbon Combo Pack.

I stamped the Life is Beautiful sentiment in Terracotta Tile ink on Very Vanilla and cut it with the smallest rectangle Stitched So Sweetly die.  This is popped over the ribbon with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

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

On the inside, I stamped the Life is Beautiful birdhouse in Soft Suede in the corner of a Very Vanilla panel.  A few of the flowers/leaves around the birdhouse seemed right, too!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere it – and a Poinsettia Place DSP mat – at angles on the inside of the card – and the card was done!

The front of the coordinating Gold Envelope got the birdhouse image three times in Soft Suede…

And – I left the already-shimmery-gold envelope flap in its natural state! 😉

Et Voila!  Life Is Beautiful is a gorgeous stamp set – with different “leaves” to use to change up the look/season of your tree!

Lee Ann Greff did a great job, didn’t she??  I hope you like – and will add this one to your stash!

My Fundraiser to Help Iowa – ends TOMORROW!!

On 10 August, the state of Iowa was hit with a derecho storm.  If you have seen any videos of it – it truly looked like a hurricane had hit Iowa.  Uhm – because it totally had – winds in the 100+mph range (that’s Cat 2 territory, folks!)  With no warning to speak of.  To say it was devastating is a bit of an understatement! 🙁

As a result of the storm, at least 43% of the corn and soybeans grown in the state were lost.  Which will be seen in the supermarkets where you and I get our food!  But beyond all that – many in that state are hurting, have lost their homes, schools and businesses and some are still without power (12+ days after the storm and with daytime temps in the 90’s ). Many farm families lost everything and are left with a huge mess to clean up prior to planting next spring.  With so much destruction, they can really use our help!

There’s an organization in Cedar Rapids, IA, called the Iowa Giving Crew, a Cedar Rapids based non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that’s helping to get power restored to those still waiting, is feeding those in need, provides 3 meals a day and is helping with the cleanup.  They’ve got a Facebook page that you can see here with photos and details about the help they’re providing.

In an effort to help, I’ve set a goal of donating $500 to the Iowa Giving Crew.

How can you help me help them??
