Stampin’ Up! Bloom & Grow Sneak Peek Thank You Card

Good morning, y’all!  Hope your weekend is going well!  I’m busily getting ready to go to Huntsville next week – Tuesday thru Thursday, so…getting some cards ahead!

If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video – I really appreciate you spending part of your weekend with me!  If not – and if’n’y’ont’to  (that’s Jeff Foxworthy-speak for “if you want to”) then here it is on YouTube!

I made this card using the new Bloom & Grow Bundle from the Stampin’ Up! 2019-2020 Annual Catalog!  I paired it up with some pretty new paper from the Woven Threads DSP.  Take a look-see:

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

I started with a piece of the Woven Threads DSP in Rococo Rose, Purple Posy and Seaside Spray and matted it on Sahara Sand for the card front.  Then I used some Liquid Glue and Glue Dots to add a length of new 1/2″ Scalloped Linen Ribbon in Pretty Peacock.

The sentiment, from Bloom & Grow, is stamped in Pretty Peacock on a second design of the DSP – it’s actually the back of the design on the card front! 🙂  I matted the sentiment on Sahara Sand and popped it over the ribbon with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

For the art, I stamped the big and beautiful floral from Bloom & Grow in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Whisper White and cut it out with the matching die in the Budding Blooms Dies.  I also stamped some leaves and berries in Pretty Peacock and Seaside Spray and cut them out as well.

I used my Blender Pen to pick up ink from the lids of my Seaside Spray, Pretty Peacock and Rococo Rose Ink Pads and colored all the flowers and leaves.  I brushed Clear Wink of Stella over the Rococo Rose flowers for a little shine.

Then I used Liquid Glue to adhere the leaves to the sentiment panel and popped the large floral over the top with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added 2019-2021 In Color Faceted Gems to the middles of the flowers – and one next to the sentiment – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a second sentiment from Bloom & Grow in Pretty Peacock on a Whisper White panel.  I also added a second floral image in Tuxedo Black.  On this one, I used my Clear Wink of Stella as a paintbrush to “watercolor” the image!


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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another of the florals from Bloom & Grow on the front…

…and more of the Woven Threads DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  The images and sentiment in the Bloom & Grow bundle are BIG, folks!  Big and beautiful  – and they’ve all got matching dies in their bundled Budding Blooms Die Set!  How cool is that?  I’m also really falling in love with the Woven Threads DSP, aren’t you?  I hope you like – and hope you’re makng your shopping lists!

Finn Fan Fix


So – it’s gotten…warm…here these past few days.

Day before yesterday, Finn asked to go out and I let him.

I mean – I’m not a monster! 😉

About twenty minutes later – I look out the window and he’s laying in the grass looking at me.  So – since it was warm, I invited him back in.

And gave him a big hug.  Cuz…I love him.

And…wrapped my arms around 74 pounds of hairy, furry SOPPING WET dog.  BLEEEEEHHHH!!!

Apparently it’s swimming weather!

I dried him off best I could – but…he was still in early drip phase.  So – best I could was not so bueno.

Feeling like a monster, I decided to put him back out for a bit.  So I got one of his big chew bones and handed it to him on his way back out the door.  And went to sit down and go back to work.

One-point-three nano seconds later…

Mom?

Mom?  You in there?  I need to come in, Mom.  Cuz I’m a little too warm…

And then he dropped the bone.

After a minute, he went and got it.

Back to the pitiful puppy ploy.

And yes.  Of course I let him back in.

Soggy pantaloonies, bone-leaves and all.

Cuz I’m not a monster.

I’m a sucker for that face! 😉

Stampin’ Up! A Little Lace Sneak Peek

Hey y’all – welcome to another week.  Isn’t there a holiday coming up soon?

I hope?

My card today is very simple – and showcases a sweet little new set from the 2019-2010 Annual Catalog called A Little Lace.  Take a look-see:

I started by stamping the large image from A Little Lace in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a Whisper White panel – using my Stamparatus.  I also added a few additional images around the large one.

With my Light and Dark Petal Pink and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends, I colored some of the flowers.

I added the sentiment from A Little Lace in Pretty Peacock – and then added another little fleur-de-do in the corner.

I added some doodle-dashes around the panel with my Journaling Pen.  The panel is double matted on Basic Black and Petal Pink.

I added a couple three Gold Faceted Gems – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added another floral image from A Little Lace in the four corners of a Whisper White panel, and colored them with the Light and Dark Daffodil Delight Blends.  Then I “connected” them with doodle-dashes.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel on Basic Black and Petal Pink, then into my Pretty Peacock card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more A Little Lace florals and some doodle-dashes on the front…

…and all I did on the envelope flap was…doodle-dashes! 🙂

Et Voila!  A Little Lace is such fun – and it’s even got a die set bundled with it called the Stitched Lace Dies – which I can’t wait to use!  But – it also works really well all by itself, don’t you think?  I hope you like!

TTFN

 

 

 

P.S.  Wayne and I had a great time at our going-away lunch for Amy on Saturday!  Ate some great food and spent time with friends!  Making new – good! – friends has been one of the biggest bonuses of being part of this wonderful Stampin’ Up! family!

Finn Fan Fix

Finn brought me a Mother’s Day gift yesterday.

I THINK he re-gifted… 😉

And…he sort of asked if he could hold on to it while I wasn’t chewing on it.  For safe keeping and stuff – keep that darned cat from getting it.

Definitely a “gift of love”! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Just Because Woven Heirlooms Sneak Peek for Mother’s Day

Good morning, y’all!  Happy Mother’s Day!  Hope you’ve got plans to celebrate or BE celebrated today!  Wish I was closer to MY mom today!

My card is a Mother’s Day card (talk about outside the box) using a retiring Host Exclusive stamp set called Just Because – that I paired up with some new Woven Threads DSP and a fun textures image from the new Woven Heirlooms stamp set (the Woven Threads suite will be available on 4 Jun to customers!).  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one comes from this week’s Global Design Project’s CASE The Designer challenge…the card we had for inspiration came from my friend Brian King.

I started by matting a piece of new Woven Threads DSP on a Rococco Rose panel for the card front.

The art, from the Just Because host-exclusive set in the 2019 Occasions Catalog, is stamped on Whisper White.  I used my Stamparatus and first masked off the words and stamped just the flowers and vase in Tuxedo Black.  Then I masked the flowers to ink the sentiment portion in Pretty Peacock and stamped that.

I cut out the image with two Rectangle Stitched Dies.

I adhered the outer frame to the card front with Liquid Glue.

On a different design of the new Woven Threads DSP, I stamped the vase again in Tuxedo Black and fussy cut it.  I went over all the lines of the image with my Journaling Pen and then adhered it over the stamped vase.

Using a Blender Pen and ink from the top of my Rococco Rose Classic Ink Pad, I colored the leaves – some I colored more than once so that some are dark, some light!  I popped the panel into place with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a new 2019-2021 In Color Faceted Dot in Rococco Rose and the card front was done.

On the inside, I used the long texture stamp in the Woven Heirlooms stamp set coming on 4 June and inked it in Rococco Rose.  I stamped it off twice on scrap paper and then stamped it four times without re-inking up the corner of a Whisper White panel.  Using my Stamparatus and some Sticky Note masks, I added another sentiment from Just Because in Pretty Peacock.

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got the same Rococco Rose Woven Heirlooms treatment in two corners…

…and some more Woven Threads DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I do believe this Just Because set has the best sentiments, don’t you?  Especially perfect for Mother’s Day!  I hope you’ll get it before it’s gone – remember it’s a host set, so…gotta getcha some Stampin’ Rewards to be able to get it!  And I love the vintage texture we can get from the new Woven Heirlooms stamp set – this was my Prize Patrol gift from OnStage.  Since it’s smack in my wheelhouse, I was thrilled as you might imagine! 🙂

I hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix

Well – the Man turned himself pretty much inside-out when he realized I was home on Friday night!

I didn’t get back until around 8:30 – and Wayne left him in the house while he rode up to the gate to let me in.

Once I was parked, Wayne opened the back door and out he came.

His first response was to…BARK – cuz…. “DAD – THERE’S A STRANGE CAR IN THE DRIVEWA…..Mooooooooom?!?!?”

And then…I had to brace.  Cuz here came out there 75 pounds of Aussie!

 

Once the initial impact was past – there was wild wiggling and panting and grinning!

And Finn was pretty wound up, too! 😉

Sure glad to see that face!

Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Birthday Soft Spring Sneak Peek

Well.  It’s Saturday.  And this post is coming to you from HOME!  Whoo-hooo! And I’ll be headed back north today for Amy’s going away lunch.

Whoo-hoo??  “Yeah” cuz I get to see our team – but… sad emoji that Amy is leaving.  They’re moving to New Jersey.  I’m really truly trying to be happy and excited for their new adventure.  Really.

You’d think we got together every week for coffee or something.  With the exception of our quarterly in-person meetings, our interaction is almost exclusively online and on the phone.  Which won’t change.

But… 🙁 🙁 🙁

I have our Cruise and the trip to Maui next year to look forward to – so…trying to be all positive and stuff.

The struggle is real, people!

So – let’s stop all this false positiveness and get to something I can legitimately be excited about, shall we?  With each new catalog there are Host-Exclusive sets – these can only be purchased using Stampin’ Rewards!  To earn Stampin’ Rewards – you have a workshop or submit an individual order with a retail value over $150!  And then – assuming you’ve done that after 4 June…you might pick one of the host sets from the new 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.

OR – you COULD join my team right this very second – and pick this set – called Soft Spring! – to help fill-out your Starter Kit.  🙂 Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from this week’s Mojo Monday sketch.

I started with a piece of new 2019-2021 In Color 6″ x 6″ DSP in Pretty Peacock and matted it on Mint Macaron for the card front.   Look at that – and all the wonderful designs – on the new papers!

On a piece of Whisper White, I used my Stamparatus to stamp the pretty flower image from Soft Spring in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  Using the fill-image stamps, I added leaves in Mint Macaron and flowers in Pineapple Punch.

I matted the panel on Mint Macaron and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

Around the entire panel, I wrapped a piece of Mint Macaron 1/4″ Textile Ribbon (new in the upcoming catalog), securing it in the back with Glue Dots.

I pulled out the Itty Bitty Birthdays stamp set – carrying over! – and stamped the sentiment in Pretty Peacock on a bannerized strip of Whisper White.  Then I popped the sentiment onto the ribbon and card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a few Pineapple Punch Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots around the flowers and one on the sentiment – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I used the Stamparatus again to add a second flower image from the Soft Spring set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the corner of a Whisper White panel.  I filled in the flowers in Pineapple Punch and the leaves in Mint Macaron.  These are very painterly, aren’t they?!?  For a more formal stay-inside-the-lines look – use your Stampin’ Write Markers to fill in the images! 🙂

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more of the Soft Spring image on the front in Tuxedo Black, Pineapple Punch and Mint Macaron…

…and some more Pretty Peacock 2019-2021 In Color 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Oh my goodness, y’all!  HOW beautiful is this Soft Spring Host-exclusive stamp set?!?  All images – no sentiments.  Just all sorts of spring-y gorgeousness!  And the new In Color 6″ x 6″ DSP?  Yes, please!!  Hope you like! 🙂

Be sure to get signed up for my Catalog Shares – and get some of this pretty paper in all the new colors for yourself!

Stampin’ Up! Life is Grand Garden Lane Sneak Peek

Hey, y’all!  Hope your week is going well as we climb the crest of the hill to Hawwmp Day!

I’m busily making cards ahead in anticipation of packing up soon to start the car-stuffing process!  I’ve almost got enough to make it thru the weekend when I’ll have a chance of having my stamping room back in order!

I might outta stop buying more Stampin’ Up!, huh?  I mean – my rental’s not a semi truck!! 😉

The card I made for you today inks up another new goody from the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog – the Verdant Garden stamp set…and pairs it with a retiring set called Life is Grand.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one comes from the CAS(E) This Sketch challenge this week.

I started with a piece of Mint Macaron card stock and stamped the first image from Garden Lane in Mint Macaron in all four corners.  Then I added the second image in Mossy Meadow.  It’s a photopolymer set – so it’s easy to line up!

Then I matted the panel on Petal Pink for the card front.

I used my Stamparatus to make the sentiment, inking the Life is Grand image in Mossy Meadow and stamping it on a piece of Whisper White.  Then I cut it out with an Oval Layering Framelit.  I also cut a slightly larger scalloped oval from Petal Pink and adhered them together with Liquid.  Then I popped them onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

From a piece of printed Vellum in the Magnolia Lane Memories & More Card Pack, I fussy cut a few leaves.  Then I adhered one under the popped-up oval and one to the oval with Liquid Glue.  I stuck one of the pretty magnolia flower stickers from the Card Pack on, too.

I used the Mossy Meadow Linen Thread from the Magnolia Lane Ribbon Combo Pack to make a double-loop bow, which I adhered with a Glue Dot.  Over the top I added a double-length simple bow of Old Olive Linen Thread.  A Rhinestone Basic Jewel finished off the card front.

On the inside, I added a second Life Is Grand sentiment in Mossy Meadow to a Whisper White panel.  In the corner I added the Verdant Garden vine image in Mossy Meadow, filling in the leaves with a Light Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blend.  Over it, I adhered another flower from the Magnolia Lane Memories & More Card Pack and then popped on a Rhinestone Basic Jewel by the sentiment.

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more of the Verdant Garden vine in Mossy Meadow and Mint Macaron – as well as a Magnolia Lane Memories & More Card Pack flower…

…and I used a coordinating design from the Garden Lane DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila! Garden Lane is lovely in many shades of green – and lends so perfectly to pairing with the complementary Magnolia Lane suite!  This pair is going to be a huge hit when the catalog goes live on 4 June!  I hope you like – and are warming up your snap-it-up-quick fingers! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Good Morning Magnolia Lane Thanks Sneak Peek

Happy Sunday, y’all!  Hope your weekend is going well!  I’m doing normal Sunday stuff…laundry…card making…getting Mexican food for dinner (Cinco de Mayo, you know!).  And hoping this is my last Sunday in Maryland!

Avengers was excellent.  That’s all I’m going to say.  Except… I hope Wayne wants to see it, too, so I can go a second time! 😉

If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video, I appreciate you spending part of your weekend with me!  If not, but would like to see the replay, here it is on my YouTube channel!

One of the prettiest of the new suites (in a catalog chock-a-block full of pretty new suites!) is Magnolia Lane.  And that’s where my eye landed for this card.  I used the Magnolia Lane Memories & More Card Pack and the Large Specialty Memories & More Cards and Envelopes, plus the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set and bundled Magnolia Memories Dies.  Take a look-see:

The layout is from this week’s Tuesday Morning Sketches challenge.

I started with a piece of printed vellum from the Magnolia Lane Memories & More Card Pack, and used my Stampin’ Blends in Mossy Meadow and Petal Pink to color the BACK of the vellum.  That creates a stained glass look!  Then I used Glue Dots – “hidden” under the colored portions – to adhere the panel to a Sahara Sand panel for the card front.

On a piece of Whisper White, I stamped the large and gorgeous magnolia image from Good Morning Magnolia in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  Then I used the Mossy Meadow and Petal Pink Blends again.  I cut the flower with the matching die from the Magnolia Memory Die set.

I also cut a few leaves from Mossy Meadow.  And – I used a die in the set to cut out a few of the small magnolia buds from the Magnolia Lane DSP – how cool is that?!?

I stamped the Good Morning Magnolia sentiment in Tuxedo Black on Whisper White and cut it with a Stitched Rectangle die.  Finally – I used the edgelit in the Magnolia Memory Dies to cut two of the strips that you see in the background – these are actually the pieces LEFT OVER when you use the edeglit!  These are cut from a piece of the Magnolia Lane Large Specialty Memories & More Cards and Envelopes – I had some leftover from a previous card.  #SaveScraps 🙂

I built the collage with Liquid Glue – starting with the craft strips, then the large magnolia.  Next is the two Mossy Meadow die cut leaves and one of the die cut DSP magnolias.  Then I popped the sentiment on with Dimensionals.

I used some Glue Dots and adhered a few loops of Mossy Meadow Linen Thread (from the Magnolia Lane Ribbon Combo Pack).  Then I added two Magnolia Lane Cork Embellishments and the final die cut DSP flower.

On the side, I added a Petal Pink sticker/strip from the Magnolia Lane Memories & More Card Pack and a few loops of the Mossy Meadow Linen Thread.  A few Pearl Basic Jewels finished off the card front.

On the inside, I added a second Good Morning Magnolia sentiment in Tuxedo Black and a Pearl to a large card from the Magnolia Lane Memories & More Card Pack.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Sahara Sand mat and into my Magnolia Lane Large Specialty Memories & More Card, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

On the front of my Magnolia Lane Large Specialty Memories & More Envelope, I stamped the large Good Morning Magnolia flower, a bud and some leaves in Tuxedo Black.  Then I colored them with my Mossy Meadow and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends…

…and I used a little Liquid Glue to adhere the liner on the inside!  Guys – these beautiful liners come WITH the Magnolia Lane Large Specialty Memories & More Cards and Envelopes!  Bonus!

Et voila!  The Magnolia Lane is one of the most stunning suites in the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog!  I love that the Magnolia Memory Dies will cut images from the Magnolia Lane DSP!  As well as the more obvious stamped images from Good Morning Magnolia.  I hope you like!

We’re just a month away from this catalog going live – and all these products being available to you! Or….you COULD join my team NOW – and pick from this suite (plus many others in the Demonstrator Pre-Order!) to fill out your Starter Kit! Remember, you pay just $99 – and select $125 in product – and you’ll get free shipping of your kit, too!  Once you’re “in”, then you’ll get to enjoy at least a 20% discount on EVERYTHING you buy!  Give me shout if you have any questions!

Stampin’ Up! To A Wild Rose Sneak Peek!

Good morning, y’all!  Well – I’ve started the countdown.

Okay – I’ve sort of been counting down since I got here, but…it’s starting to get real!  I’m beginning to stress over the packing process next week, which means we’re getting closer!  I’m keeping my fingers crossed – and hope you will, too! – that I can actually get out of here next Friday.  I very badly want to be home on the 11th for a going away lunch.  I’m already missing my friend’s graduation tomorrow – and am going to be right annoyed if I ALSO miss the lunch for my other friend.  Yes.  I have two friends who are not the same person! 😉

So – think good thoughts that all goes well today and next week, won’t you?

My card today is a sneak peek of a beautiful bundle coming soon in the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog called To A Wild Rose.  The stamp set will be bundled with the Wild Rose Dies.  For this card, I set the bundle images against some perfectly perfect Perennial Essence DSP (also coming on 4 June!).  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from the challenge at The Paper Players.

I started with some gorgeous paper from the new Perennial Essence DSP and matted it on Balmy Blue for the card front.

I created the vertical element using a die from the Wild Rose Dies, cutting it from another piece of Balmy Blue, then adhering it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I created some leaves by stamping the outlines from To A Wild Rose in Mossy Meadow.  Then I used the fill-in images in Old Olive – on one set I used full-strength Old Olive and on the other I used it stamped-off-once.  Different looks with one ink pad! 🙂

I also die cut a few Old Olive leaves and a Balmy Blue flower while I was at it.

To make the large flower, I used the three-step images in the To A Wild Rose stamp set.  The first image is Blackberry Bliss (that’s the outline), then I used Balmy Blue and Blueberry Bushel for the two fill-in images.  Then I cut it with the matching Wild Rose die.

The sentiment is two-step as well.  The large word is in Blakcberry Bliss and the smaller is Balmy Blue.  Since this is a photopolymer set, it was easy to line up the two images to create the sentiment I was after.  Then I cut it out with the uber-cool stitched die in the Wild Rose Die set! 🙂

I built the collage using Liquid Glue for the leaves and sentiment, and then added some Dimensionals to the back of the large flower.  I used them to wind some loops of Gold Metallic Thread and then adhered the whole thing to the card front.

I adhered the die cut Balmy Blue flower and added a new Perennial Essence Floral Center.  Near the bottom is a Crushed Curry felt flower from the Follow Your Art Embellishment Kit (also coming on 4 June), with a Gold Faceted Gem in the center.  And that was it for the card front!

On the inside, I added a second sentiment from To A Wild Rose in Balmy Blue to a Whisper White panel, then added a bevy of flowers in Blackberry Bliss.

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

…and some more of that stunning Perennial Essence DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I know I keep saying “WOW” with each new sneak peek, but…WOW!  Not sorry!

This To a Wild Rose stamp set and bundled Wild Rose Dies is simply gorgeous!  The sentiments are wonderful and the flowers and leaves perfect!  I hope you like and are excited to get this one added to your tool chest come 4 June!

Stampin’ Up! Daisy Lane 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 color 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 decided that the color scheme was really asking for some flowers and leaves – so…I pulled out the new Daisy Lane stamp set!  Now, this set will be bundled (read: SAVE 10%!) with the new Medium Daisy Punch which will come out in the new 2019-2020 Annual Catalog at the same time this set makes its debut!  AND – it also works with the Daisy Punch, which is already active and is carrying over.  So…take a look-see:

And here’s the color scheme in question!

Flowers, right??

I started with two panels of Sahara Sand and, with a little tiny dab of Liquid Glue, temporarily stuck them together.  That’s a pretty classic start to a Double-Time or Triple-Time card!

I inked up the large daisy in the new Daisy Lane (4 June!) stamp set with Highland Heather and stamped them a couple of times – without re-inking, here and there on the layered panels.

I inked the pretty leaf from Daisy Lane in Pear Pizzazz and repeated the process.  Folls – there’s a strong chance this is going to be my favorite leaf image EVER!!

With Highland Heather, I added the sentiment from Daisy Lane.

Then I ran the whole thing thru the Big Shot in the Subtle Dynamic TIEF.

I matted both panels on Pear Pizzazz and then adhered the smaller panel to the card front.  I used my Pear Pizzazz and Highland Heather Stampin’ Write Markers to add a little color in the margins – cleaning up the space left by the stamping.  Then I popped the smaller panel over the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a seperate piece of Sahara Sand, I stamped more daisies in Highland Heather.  I made several full-strength and several stamped-off-once – then layered them…I fussy cut them – but…YOU could (I’d even go so far as to say SHOULD!) use the Medium Daisy Punch (which will come out on 4 Jun) and the Daisy Punch (which is in the current catalog – but…I left it at home!).

I added a couple of short lengths of Whisper White 5/8″ Flax Ribbon with a couple of Glue Dots.  On the back of the flower, I used Liquid Glue to wind some Gold Metallic Thread in loops.  Finally, I adhered the flower to the card front.

I added a Gold Faceted Gem to the flower center and a couple up in the corner – and the card front was done!

On the inside I added a second sentiment from Daisy Lane in Highland Heather on a Sahara Sand panel, then added some full-strength and stamped-off-once flowers in the corner.  A couple of Pear Pizzazz leaves finished it off.

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

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got a couple more Highland Heather flowers and Pear Pizzazz leaves on the front…

…and another leaf on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  How.  Cool.  Is.  This.  Daisy Lane stamp set?!?  And it’s a PUNCH set!  Whoo-hooo!  I hope you like and have moved this one up to the top of your list for the release of the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog on 4 June!

Stampin’ Up! Perennial Essence Bird Ballad Fun Fold

Happy Tuesday!  The week is clicking by!  Soon it’ll be Hawwmp Day and we’ll be on the downhill slide to the weekend!  Whoo-hooo!

My card today is…another fun fold.  In fact, it’s the same fold as yesterday – sorry! – cuz I needed another gift card for a co-worker leaving the program.  And – I wanted to do something flower-dy and pretty for her.  So…I used the same fold on the inside, but…pulled in the Floral Essence stamp set, plus some gorgeous painterly Perennial Essence DSP and a Bird Ballad Laser Cut Note card – all available on 4 June!  Take a look-see:

Look at that gorgeous die cut card front – that’s ALL from the Bird Ballad Laser-Cut Cards and Tin set – which is part of the new Bird Ballad product suite.

For the card front layout, I used the sketch challenge from CAS(E) This Sketch this week.

I started by creating a diagonal mat from So Saffron and a Very Vanilla “card front”.  On that Very Vanilla piece, I stamped a sentiment from Floral Essence in Blackberry Bliss ink.  Then I stamped a couple of flowers from the same set in So Saffron, adding Crushed Curry centers (there are a couple of different “center” images to choose from in the set).  I also stamped some pretty leaves in Mossy Meadow – and colored them with my Light and Dark Old Olive and Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blends.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the Vanilla panel to the So Saffron mat.

To create my card base, I used the Bird Ballad Laser-Cut Card and, using Liquid Glue, adhered a Petal Pink piece of Perennial Essence DSP to the back of the laser-cut front of the card base.  Then I adhered my matted diagonal to the front.

Using the flower stamp from Perennial Essence, I stamped it three times in Petal Pink on Petal Pink card stock and three times on the Petal Pink Vellum from the Perennial Essence 12″ x 12″ Vellum Card Stock pack.

When everything was dry (it takes a minute on the Vellum!), I punched all the flowers with the new Perennial Flower Punch (which will be available on 4 Jun, bundled with the Perennial Essence stamp set).  I lightly curled the petals and glued a card stock flower to a vellum flower to create three full flowers.

On a separate piece of Very Vanilla, I stamped some more leaves in Mossy Meadow and colored them with the Blends.  Then I fussy cut them.  

Using Liquid Glue, I added the leaves and flowers in an ever-so-artistic manner, added a few fuzzy Perennial Essence Flower Centers (4 Jun!) and the card front was done!

On the inside, I re-created the fun pop-up gift card holder just like I did yesterday, using Perennial Essence DSP and sentiments/images from the Perennial Essence stamp set.

You can see the basics in my video here.

For this one, though, I created the actual gift card envelope from some Perennial Essence DSP – and I cut my little “window” with the Starburst Punch.

 

I added the sentiments in Blackberry Bliss and the flowers and leaves in So Saffron,  Crushed Curry and Mossy Meadow.

Once again, I left the lower Very Vanilla panel blank so all my co-workers and I could sign it!

The envelope, which is part of the Bird Banner Laser-Cut Cards and Tin set, got more of the Perennial Essence flowers on the front…

…and I left the flap alone – they already come with that beautiful scalloped edge!

Et Voila!  I just love this fold – I promise, though, last one!  But isn’t it gorgeous with the Perennial Essence suite?  And those Bird Balllad Laser-Cut Cards – instant BAM!!  I hope you like – and that you’ll make some of these fun gift card holders.  And…are adding this Suite to your wish list!

Stampin’ Up! Bird Ballad Sneak Peek For a Friend

Morning, all!  Happy weekend!  Are you all on your way to see Avengers Endgame?  I am NOT – not cuz I don’t want to (I most desperately DO!) – but because there’s barely a ticket to be had!  One of the guys went to the special early release showing on Thursday night – and he gave it two thumbs up.  I’m really hoping to go next weekend!

One little admin note before we get to the card – I will NOT be doing my FB Live tonight! I have a previous engagement and won’t be around.  So…we’ll get together TOMORROW night – Sunday, at 7 pm Eastern.  Okey dokey?  Hopefully the hotel internet will cooperate.  If not – take heart…in theory I’ll be home in a couple of weeks and we won’t have to worry about sharing bandwidth with everyone ELSE trying to stream their videos!

Okay – let’s get it, shall we?  My card today is yet another Sneak Peek (I can’t help it very much – all these new goodies are just sitting there BEGGING to be played with!  Who am I to deny them??).  This one uses the so-pretty Bird Ballad suite (coming on 4 June) – take a look-see:

This layout is courtesy of this week’s Global Design Project sketch challenge.

And – as a little reminder, here’s the Bird Ballad Suite…

I started with some of the beautiful flower-and-bird strewn paper from the Bird Ballad DSP (available on 4 June) and matted it on Daffodil Delight for the card front.  I wrapped some Petal Pink 5/8″ Organdy Striped Ribbon (from the coming-soon Perennial Essence Suite) around the panel, securing it in the back with Glue Dots.

Next up, using my Stamparatus, I stamped the Free As A Bird sentiment in Tuxedo Black on a Whisper White square.  Above it, I added the bird-on-a-branch image, also in Tuxedo Black.

I matted the square on Daffodil Delight and popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a seperate piece of Whisper White, I stamped the bird-and-branch image again in Tuxedo Black.  Using my Light and Dark Daffodil Delight, Petal Pink, Crumb Cake, and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends, I colored the image.  Then I fussy cut it. 🙂

I used Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals (it’s me – so…I used a bunch!) and popped the colored birds over top of the black-and-white image.

I tied a bow from the Petal Pink 5/8″ Organdy Striped Ribbon and adhered it with a Glue Dot – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped a second Free As A Bird sentiment in Tuxedo Black on Whisper White.  Then I added some flowers and leaves in Tuxedo Black sort of scattered all over.  I stamped the images a couple of times without re-inking.  Then I used my Light and Dark Petal Pink Blends to color the flowers.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Daffodil Delight mat and into my Petal Pink card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card front was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Free As A Bird flowers and leaves on the front…

…and I added more of the pretty Bird Ballad DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This whole gorgeous Bird Ballad suite just screams SPRING, doesn’t it?  The images and beautiful sentiments in the Free As A Bird stamp set coordinate perfectly with the Bird Ballad DSP.  And – watch for those uber-cool Stitched Nested Labels dies!  Go ahead – just add this one to your wish list!  You know you’re going to get it!  Hope you like!
