Good mornin’, y’all – welcome to another edition of Amy’s Inkin’ Krew team blog hop!  Each month we make projects centered around a theme – and this month our theme is Masculine projects!  We can interpret that any way we want – so…be sure to check and see everyone’s projects – we’ve got a bunch of talented ladies hopping with us this month!

I decided to go with the Come Sail Away suite of products, making heavy use of the Smooth Sailing Dies and the Come Sail Away Memories & More Card Pack.  And no stamp set or ink needed.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Come Sail Away North 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 fell in love with the Come Sail Away Suite of goodies when I made my samples and presentation for OnStage this past April!  And when I saw today’s sketch challenge, my brain saw the lighthouse in the vertical element.  So I pulled the Sailing Home stamp set and bundled Smooth Sailing Dies out and…take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! A Good Man Sneak Peek for Dad

Well.  We did it again!  Made it thru a whole week and here we are on the last day before a weekend!  AND – it’s my husband Wayne’s birthday today! Whoo-hoo!

I did another Sneak Peek for you today – are you getting tired of those yet? 🙂  This one uses one of the several masculine-dad-husband oriented stamp sets in the new 2019-2020 Annual Catalog, called A Good Man.  And I paired it with a little of my favorite woodgrain design from the Floral Romance Specialty DSP.   Take a look-see:

The layout for this one comes from this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

…And I used colors from the Sunday Stamps color challenge, too!

I started with a piece of the woodgrain paper from the Floral Romance Specialty DSP (which is going away with the end of the 2019 Occasions Catalog – so get some (more!) of this gorgeous paper soon!).  Using my Stamparatus, I stamped the sweet image from the new A Good Man stamp set (coming in the new catalog on 4 June – or 2 May if you’re a demonstrator!) in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  Again with the Stamparatus, I stamped the first sentiment from A Good Man in Mossy Meadow next to the image.

Then I double matted the panel on Blackberry Bliss and Mossy Meadow for the card front.

I used my Journaling Pen to add “stitches” around the edge of the panel.

On a strip of the woodgrain Floral Romance Specialty DSP, I added another A Good Man sentiment in Blackberry Bliss.  Then I snipped banner ends, added faux “stitches” with the Journaling Pen, and popped it on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I tied a double-loop Billie-Bow with new Mossy Meadow Linen Thread (part of the Magnolia Lane Ribbon Combo Pack – coming on 4 Jun).  I adhered a Bird Ballad Trinket (yep, coming in the new Annual Catalog) with a Glue Dot, then added my bow with a second Glue Dot.  And the card front was done!

On the inside, I used the marker-to-rubber inking technique and my Stamparatus to add another sentiment from A Good Man in Mossy Meadow and Blackberry Bliss (two “good”) on Sahara Sand.  Then I stamped a final sentiment in Mossy Meadow.  I used new Terracotta Tile ink and, stamping off twice, stamped the heart from A Good Man a couple of times.  Finally, I added more Journaling Pen faux “stitches”.

I used Liquid Glue to mat the panel on Blackberry Bliss and Mossy Meadow, then into my Terracotta Tile card base (4 June), popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got another of the A Good Man images (in Tuxedo Black) and a couple of hearts (in stamped-off-once Terracotta Tile) on the front…

…and a little more Floral Romance Specialty DSP, with a stamped-off-once Terracotta Tile heart, on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I love love love the A Good Man stamp set so much!  The sentiments and images are simply…perfect!  Hope you like!

A Good Man should be available just in time for all your Father’s Day card needs!  You could for SURE get it in time if you sign up to join the team right on 2 May!  You’d be able to pick this one as part of your Starter kit.  Give me a shout if that sounds like a plan to you!

Stampin’ UP! All Geared Up For Father’s Day

Good morning!  Hope your week is going well so far – we’re trying to come out the other side of the latest cold-snap here in Maryland.  Yesterday was so darned cold in the hangar (where our “office” is) that I could hardly type!  Supposed to get warmer tomorrow – so I’m keeping my frozen fingers crossed!

So – just to be sure we’re all on the same sheet of DSP…the news of my impending resignation from Stampin’ Up! yesterday was TOTALLY AND COMPLETELY an April Fool’s joke!  I will not be quitting any time soon – either Stampin’ Up! OR Blogging!  As long as you’ll read my ramblings – I’ll post them!  And, should the day ever come when I might need to leave – I’ll give you plenty (PLENTY!!) of warning.  I promise!

Okay?

For those of you who figured it out yesterday – and then took me up on my offer of Double Peppermints – good on ya! You know me too well!

Now – on to our card.  I thought I’d pull out a bundle that hasn’t seen the light of day for a minute – the Geared Up Garage and matching Garage Gears Thinlits.  Then I set it all atop some Classic Garage 6″ x 6″ DSP.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Best Catch For You, Dad!

Whoo-hooo!!  It’s Friday again! Happy happy joy joy!

My card today is one of those elusive “masculine” cards.  We all sort of have trouble with those, don’t we?  We like flowers and embellishments and “pretty” colors, right?  But, we don’t usually think of those things when we think of making a card for the dudes in our lives.  So it’s happy that Stampin’ Up! listened and brought us the Best Catch stamp set – handily bundled with the great Catch of the Day Framelits.  And – I added those elements to…Floral Romance Specialty DSP – and made a perfectly masculine card.

Say what??

Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Geared Up Garage Sneak Peek

Happy Saturday, y’all!  Today is our Quarterly in-person version of our Amy’s Inkin’ Krew team meeting!  I so look forward to these meetings each quarter – we have such a great group of ladies – both in Amy’s direct team and in my team (the Critters-N-Creatin’ Krew!) – and we all get together and have a wonderful time!  Oh – and it’s my day for Panera!  Love!

I know I’ll have some fun projects to share with you in the upcoming days!  Yes – we DO make cards at our meetings! 😉

Speaking of fun projects and sneak peeks, how’s about one today?  This is a new set in the Occasions catalog (coming on 3 Jan 18) that will be perfectly perfect for Father’s Day – or, for anyone that loves classic cars!  It’s called Geared Up Garage and it’s cool! Take a look-see:

The layout – which is perfect for the big gears die in the new Garage Gears Thinlits – is from the CAS Colours & Sketches challenge this week.

Check out this fun stamp and framelits bundle!

And there’s paper, too – called the Classic Garage 6″ x 6″ DSP!

So – I started with one of the more plain designs in the Classic Garage DSP and first embossed it in the Subtle Dynamic TIEF.  Then I used my Simply Scored board to create a grid.  I scored across the card front – lightly!! – at each inch.  Then I turned the paper 90 degrees and did it again.

The end result looks like asphalt.

Humor me!

With Liquid Glue, I matted the “asphalt” to a Blueberry Bushel card stock panel for the card front.

I used the big, detailed die in the Garage Gears Thinlits and cut out the large element from a piece of Galvanized Metallic Paper.  I also cut two smaller sets of gears at the same time.

With Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals, I popped the big gears onto the card front.

I adhered the smaller gear die (with the three gears) to the card front with Liquid Glue, then made a loop of new Black/Silver 1/4″ Striped Metallic Ribbon (available 3 Jan) and adhered it to the card front with a couple of Glue Dots.

The sentiment, from Geared Up Garage, is heat embossed in Silver on Blueberry Bushel, then cut with the matching die in the Garage Gears Thinlits.  I popped it over the ribbon and gears with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The final, single, gear die cut is popped over the large shape with a Stampin’ Dimensionals.  To finish up, I adhered a little wrench embellishment from the Classic Garage Metal Elements with a Glue Dot and the card front was done!

On the inside, I inked up the “cloud” (of exhaust?!?) image from Geared Up Garage in Blueberry Bushel and stamped it off once, then stamped a Whisper White panel.  Over that, I heat embossed a second sentiment in Silver.  Finally, I added some gears in Basic Gray ink.

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got a full-strength Blueberry Bushel cloud and some Basic Gray gears on the front…

…and some more Classic Garage DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  What fun this Geared Up Garage stamp set and bundled Garage Gears Thinlits is going to be as we head into Spring!!  Anyone who appreciates a classic ride is going to love this suite of goodies!!  Hope you like – and will be adding it to your Wish List!

TTFN

P.S.  I’ve been giving you sneaky peeks at the new papers and embellishments and ribbons in the 2019 Occasions catalog.  Wondering about catalog shares? Yup – I’ll be doing them!  Watch for that post with all the information and your chance to get in next week! 🙂

It really is a pretty awful thing to see, I know.

Stampin’ Up! True Gentleman in Plaid

Good Monday, y’all!  It’s the Monday after OnStage – and…wow!  What a weekend it was!  Lots of surprises and fun give-aways!  Saw lots of demonstrator friends-from-afar!  Totally wonderful – and…whew!  I’m tired!  And already excited for Orlando in November!

If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video, I sure do appreciate you spending some of your weekend with me! If not, but you’d like to take a look, here’s the YouTube link.

One of the nicest Suites in the Occasions catalog is the Truly Tailored suite of products  – they’re just perfect for making masculine cards!  Which is exactly what I did with this card today.  I used the Truly Tailored stamp set for the sentiments and the handsome plaid in the True Gentleman DSP.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! True Gentleman Video Sneak Peek

Wow, y’all!  I can’t believe another OnStage Local is in the books!  One second…I’m leavin’-in-a-mini-van and the next?  Headed back to the house!

The event was wonderful and the new catalog lives up to all our expectations!

And speaking of expectations, let me let you in on what’s going to happen in the next few days, okay?

Tomorrow afternoon – after 3pm Eastern, we’ll get together on FB for a few minutes to go over the goodies that I got at CenterStage and OnStage.  A couple of stamp sets and a few other things.  And I’ll probably do a quick post with pictures of the new items and the display boards.

Stampin’ Up! True Gentleman Basket Weave

Mornin’!  Hope your weekend has started off well – and that you’re planning something fun!

My card for today is a pretty large departure from my usual style.  In that it’s not got a ton of layers, and embellishments.  No froof.

I was sort of thinking…masculine card – after I saw the color scheme at this week’s Color Throwdown.  So I pulled out some True Gentleman DSP and the Truly Tailored Bundle and put it all on top of a Basket Weave Dynamic TIEF embossed card front.  Take a look-see:

The layout – which is quite clean and simple – is courtesy of the FabFriday sketch challenge this week. Continue reading

Stampin’ Up! Stamps-N-Lingers 2018 Sale-a-Bration Kick-off Ordering Special with True Gentleman!

Well, y’all!  It’s finally here!  SALE-A-BRATION has arrived – finally!!  Sale-A-Bration is awesome for lots of reasons!  Oh – and, just to bump-up-the-awesome…how’s about Double Peppermint Points?!?  We’ll run that for a week – for orders over $50!  Which will, of course, also get you a Sale-A-Bration goody!  And…I’ll even do Double Peppermints on my Special Bundles.  All the deets are down below!

But – for a second, take a look at my card for today – no longer a “sneak peek” – the sneaking is over!  I made a great “guy” card using the wonderful new True Gentleman suite of goodies.  Including the amazingly gorgeous True Gentleman DSP.  Take a look-see:

The layout for the pattern-filled card came from the December Viva La Verve sketch challenge.

Much of this card is made by simply Fast Fuse-ing DSP to Crushed Curry card stock – so pretty easy peasy!

I adhered some True Gentleman DSP (isn’t that blue plaid gorgeous?!?!) to Crushed Curry for the card front.  The next layer is a strip of Crumb Cake with Crumb Cake bow-ties from the Truly Tailored stamp set.  I stamped the image a few times without re-inking, and repeated that several times.  I matted it on Crushed Curry and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I wrapped a length of the Night of Navy 3/8″ Corduroy Ribbon around the panel, securing it in the back.  For the next layer, I added a little more True Gentleman DSP matted on Crushed Curry and adhered with Liquid Glue.  

I hemmed and hawed for a bit on what to do for the circle element – and finally decided on some Wood Textures DSP.  Both circles are cut with the Circles Layering Framelits – adhered together with Liquid Glue and then adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals and Liquid Glue.

I made the sentiment by coloring parts of the image from Truly Tailored with my Tranquil Tide and Night of Navy Stampin’ Write Markers and stamping it on Very Vanilla.  Then I punched it out with the matching Tailored Tag Punch and popped it on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Remember the Bow Builder Punch?  Page 207 in the Annual Catalog, in case you’d forgotten!  

I thought it would be perfectly perfect for this card, so I pulled it out and created a tidy and tailored and – dare I say…Classy!?! – bow tie with yet another pattern of paper in the True Gentleman DSP.  I used a short length of Night of Navy 3/8″ Corduroy Ribbon to wrap around the middle of the bow.

 

I stuck the little bow on with Liquid Glue and a Stampin’ Dimensional and the card front was done!

On the inside, I inked up a second sentiment from Truly Tailored with my Tranquil Tide and Night of Navy Markers and, using my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig, stamped it in the middle of a Very Vanilla panel.  Then I colored the little bow tie – same two Markers – and stamped it under the sentiment.

I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Crushed Curry mat and into my Thick Very Vanilla card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got two more bow ties – colored with the Tranquil Tide and Night of Navy Markers – on the front…

…and I added some more of the plaid True Gentleman DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I love this Suite, y’all!  The paper in particular just hits all the right notes for me – and the sentiments and small images in Truly Tailored are really going to be perfect for the “gentleman” in your life!  I hope you like!

It just so happens that True Gentleman is one of the Special Ordering Bundles I have available right now – you can get it in Clear or Wood!  Click here to see all the bundles and get yours ordered!

For most of my childhood, we had a Basset Hound.

A Basset Hound, let there be no doubt, can look pretty danged pitiful.

It’s the eyes.  They use them like a boss.

I didn’t think I had to worry about Puppy-Pity-Parties with an Aussie.

I was so wrong.

I give you…THE Boss.

This was two days ago – when it was only down to 30.  So pretty darned hot.

He refused to come in. No matter how many times I invited/cajoled/enticed/bribed/begged/half-heartedly demanded…Nope.

Now, before you go call Animal Control to report Animal Abuse (two days in a row…) take a look-see:

Thirty is okay.  At thirty degrees- the “suit up” actually works.  Mostly.  So I went out and we played keep away for a while.

Then we went for a walk.

With our stick.

Just walkin’ with my Mom.  And my stick!

Pity to Party in less than a heartbeat! 🙂
