Stampin’ Up! Sending Hugs 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!

Yesterday I got my first non-pre-order order from the new catalog and I was awash with wonderfulness.  It was a hard decision to pick what to play with first – have I mentioned that I love WAAY too much in this new offering?!?  But – our color challenge and a photo inspiration challenge sealed the deal and I pulled out the Sending Hugs stamp set and bundled Layering Hugs dies.  Take a look-see:

So – this card has many CASE’d elements from the sample card for this bundle in the new catty.  It was the card that persuaded me that I NEEDED this set!

Here’s our color challenge for the week.

And the photo from The Card Concept was also inspirational.  I’d say my card is Clean & Layered. Yes? 🙂

I started with a piece of Basic White that I embossed in the new Bark 3D Embossing Folder (LOOOOVE!!!) and matted on Pale Papaya for the card front.

On a smaller piece of Basic White, I used my Stamparatus to stamp the big floral sentiment image from Sending Hugs in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.

I tore the right edge of the panel to get it all the way down to its final size.

Using my Evening Evergreen, Soft Succulent, Pale Papaya, Fresh Freesia and Polished Pink Stampin’ Blends, I colored the gorgeous flowers and leaves.  Then I popped the panel onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered a piece of Pale Papaya paper from the Hand-Penned DSP to a piece of Foam Adhesive sheet and ran it thru my Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine with the “HUGS” die in place.  This is so cool – it’s a single die that cuts all the letters at once!

I peeled the backing off my letters and adhered them in place over the stamped sentiment.

On another piece of Basic White, I stamped the small floral image from Sending Hugs in Tuxedo Black and colored them with my Polished Pink and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends, then cut them with the matching die in Layered Hugs.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the three flowers together into a little bouquet, then adhered them to the card front – tucking the stems “into” the popped-up sentiment.

I tied a little bow from the Crumb Cake twine in the new Baker’s Twine Essentials Pack and adhered it with a Glue Dot.

I stamped the Sending Hugs sentiment in Polished Pink on a piece of Pale Papaya card stock and cut it with the larger label die in the Layered Hugs set.

I used Liquid Glue on the left side of the sentiment and a double-stack of Stampin’ Dimensionals on the right side and stuck it over the bow.

A Fresh Freesia 2021-2023 In Color Jewel finished off the card front.

For the inside, I stamped the small floral from Sending Hugs twice in Tuxedo Black and colored them with the Polished Pink and Soft Succulent Blends.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Pale Papaya mat and into my Evening Evergreen card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Basic White Medium Envelope got the Sending Hugs flower on the front…

…and more Hand-Penned DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  See why I NEEDED to have this Sending Hugs stamp set?  By itself it’s beautimous….add the amazing Layered Hugs dies (bundled for a 10% savings!) and BOOM!  It’s a bit of a fly-over set, but…enter holding when you come across it on page 19!  I think you’ll love it like I do!  And – ALL the 2021-2023 In Colors together on one card?!?  You betcha – this group of colors is AMAZING together!! 🙂

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

Stampin’ Up! Flowers of Friendship Big Thanks Sneak Peek

Good Monday morning!  This is a BIG DAY – it’s your last chance to get in on the…well….Last Chance Sale!  When tomorrow dawns, the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog will be “in the books” and the Last Chance Sale will be gone-baby-gone!  So be SURE to give the list one more fly-by today, okay?? 😉

My card today is from the NEW catalog – which, incidentally, in case you hadn’t heard (😳😳😳) goes LIVE tomorrow morning!!  Whoo-hoo!  One of the awesome things you’ll be able to pick up is this Flowers of Friendship bundle which includes the Flowers & Leaves Punch (I’m a sucker for a punch, aren’t you?! 😉).  Take a look-see:

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

And the pretty, spring-y palette is from the Color Throwdown challenge.

I started with a piece of Basic White cardstock that I embossed in the pretty Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder and matted on Flirty Flamingo for the card front.

Then I cut a Basic White straight-sided circle with the Layering Circle Dies and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I stamped the Flowers of Friendship sentiment in Granny Apple Green on a piece of Basic White and cut it with the Tailored Tag Punch.  Using my Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Write Marker, I added faux “stitches” around the edges of the tag and adhered it with Liquid Glue.

On another piece of Basic White, I stamped the flowers and leaves from Flowers of Friendship.  I stamped two large and two small flowers in Flirty Flamingo and one each in Calypso Coral.  Then I punched them with the Flowers & Leaves Punch.

I also stamped some large and small leaves in Granny Apple Green and cut them with the punch.

I used Stampin Blends in Flirty Flamingo and Calypso Coral to color the flowers and Granny Apple Green for the leaves.

I popped the small flowers onto “their” larger counterparts with Stampin’ Dimensionals – then used Liquid Glue to adhere them to the card front.

I tucked the leaves in here and there using more Liquid Glue.

I colored some clear droplet-shaped pieces from the new Silver & Clear Epoxy Essentials  (coming tomorrow!!) with my Dark Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blend and adhered them to the card front.

Then, I cheated the CTD challenge just a smidge and added some Pale Papaya gems from the new 2021-2023 In Color Jewels (also available starting tomorrow!) to the centers of the flowers and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped a second Flowers of Friendship sentiment in Granny Apple Green on a Basic White panel.  Then I added the strip-of-flowers image – also from Flowers of Friendship – in Calypso Coral across the top and bottom of the panel.  I colored the flowers with my Light Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blend.

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

My Basic White Medium Envelope got the Flowers of Friendship floral across the bottom of the front…

…and a little of the new 2021-2022 design 2021-2023 In Color 6″ x 6″ DSP in Flirty Flamingo on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I love this Flowers of Friendship bundle!  The floral images are so sweet and pretty and the fonts used in the sentiments are some of my faves!!  And who wouldn’t love “Tiny Card, Big Thanks”!? Add in the cool Flowers & Leaves Punch and…well.

I hope you like!  And have already added this to your gotta-get-it-gotta-get-it-right-now list for tomorrow! 😉

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

Turns out that taking care of a significantly ill horse is…hard work.  Pretty much round the clock.

It’s especially hard on the vet tech.

Morning starts out normally enough – he goes out when I get up – goes out to do those morning things – comes back in to a little breakfast bone – and then takes a little nap.

But – the nap is rudely cut short by the need to go take care of the stupid pony.

Err…valued and much loved patient! 😉

When that is done…he has to catch as many zzzzzz’s as quick as he possibly can.

So he does.

Cuz in a blink it’ll be time for mid-morning rounds.

Ponies are NEEDY!

Stampin’ Up! Hand-Penned Flowers Memories & More Sneak Peek!

Happy Happy Hawwwmp Day!  We’re inching closer to the weekend – closer to the end of the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog AND closer and closer to the NEW 2021-2022 Annual Catalog going live!  Whoo-hoo!! While that’s exciting – be sure to check the Last Chance section in the Online Store – don’t miss out on your favorite retiring goodies! 🙂

Today is all about the new catalog!  I was finally able to pick up the Hand-Penned Memories & More Cards & Envelopes, to go with the Hand-Penned Memories & More Card Pack that I already had.  I added some goodness from the new Hand-Penned Petals stamp set.  Take a look-see:

The layout was loosely inspired by the sketch over at As You See It.

I started with one of the gorgeous – already-decorated-for-you! – Hand-Penned Memories & More Cards & Envelopes.  Then I selected a panel from the Hand-Penned Memories & More Card Pack.  I cut that down some and matted it on Highland Heather using Liquid Glue.

The Memories & More Card Packs include multiple different “stickers” you can use to decorate your cards and projects.  I selected one of the white ones and stamped the Hand-Penned Petals sentiment in Highland Heather.

I tied a small bow from a piece of Pool Party 3/8″ Sheer Ribbon and adhered it to the card front with a Glue Dot.

I used a few double-stacked Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop the sentiment over the top of the bow.

To finish off, I added a Mint Macaron Genial Gem and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped the pretty floral from Hand-Penned in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the corner of a Basic White panel.  I stamped the large flower once in stamped-off-once Highland Heather.  Then I turned the stamp slightly and stamped it again with full strength Highland Heather.  I stamped the smaller flower once in stamped-off-once Highland Heather.  I added leaves using the stamps in the set, in Mint Macaron.  Then I stuck on another of the Genial Gems, just cuz I could!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Highland Heather mat and into the Hand-Penned Memories & More Card, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

For the front of the Hand-Penned Memories & More Envelope – I stamped the Hand-Penned Petals floral in Tuxedo Black…

…and I didn’t have to do a thing to the pre-decorated envelope flap!

Et Voila!  Well, y’all – I’ll tell you what.  The Hand-Penned Memories & More goodies – be it the Card Pack or the Cards & Envelopes – are simply stunning!  So gorgeous and so perfect to pair with the Hand-Penned Petals stamp set.  But they can also be used all by themselves – there are even sentiments on many of the cards in the pack!

I hope you like!  No…I hope you LOVE it as much as I do! 🙂

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

The man has been spending more time on the sofa with me in the evening.

Not sure if he’s missing Katy – or…just taking advantage of the fact that the sofa is more available to him.

I suppose it could be that he really really loves me…

Or maybe….

…hmmm.  Never mind.

Stampin’ Up! Quiet Meadow Sneak Peek Triple Panel Card

‘Sup, y’all??  Happy Tuesday!  I hope your week is going well!  Our weather has been…gorgeous!  Warm enough to have the house open all day and night.  Bright sun – the flowers are blooming and I think the strawberries are trying to do their thing!  We planted on Monday and the patio is really starting to be a pretty spot!  And it smells heavenly! 🙂

My card today features its own flowers and is another sneak peek of the Quiet Meadow stamp set – didn’t even need to use the amazing bundled Meadow Dies!  Get this – and the Pansy Petals DSP – just ONE WEEK FROM TODAY!  Whoo-hoo!! Once you have it in hand – I hope you’ll use it to make today’s card. Take a look-see:

The inspiration for this card came from the FUSION challenge this week!

I started with some pretty Pansy Petals DSP in gingham Pale Papaya that I matted on Pale Papaya for the card front.

Next, I cut a narrow panel of Basic White and placed it in my Stamparatus.  I positioned the sweet wildflower image from Quiet Meadow in the Stamparatus and then used the Marker-to-Stamp technique to color the stamp in Poppy Parade and Evening Evergreen using those Stampin’ Write Markers.

I cut the panel into three equal sized panels and adhered them to a Pale Papaya mat.  Hint:  when doing this technique adhere the two end pieces first.  AND – I made the length of the mat an extra 1/8″ longer than usual.

Using the script image in the Quiet Meadow set – I stamped each panel with it in stamped-off-once Pale Papaya.

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

I stamped the Quiet Meadow sentiment in Poppy Parade on Basic White and cut it with the most narrow Stitched Rectangle Die.  I popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Using a Glue Dot, I adhered a Pale Papaya Loose Flower Flourish (coming on 4 May!) to the sentiment – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I once again used my Stamparatus to stamp the Quiet Meadow image using my Poppy Parade and Evening Evergreen Stampin’ Write Markers.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Pale Papaya mat and into my Evening Evergreen card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Basic White Medium Envelope got a reprise of the Quiet Meadow floral on the front…

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

Et Voila!  I mentioned at the start that I didn’t need the full Quiet Meadow bundle for this particular card…

…but I’m really glad I have it in my stash.  Those die cuts are AMAZING!  Check out what I did with them in a previous card right here!  I love this Quiet Meadow stamp set (and matching Meadow Dies) so much – and they’re just perfect to pair with the gorgeous, spring-y Pansy Petals DSP!

I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! True Love Pansy Petals Sneak Peek

Good morning and welcome to the week!  Guess what happens one week from today?  That’s 3 May.  Does that date ring a bell??  Yep – you got it.  That’s the last day you’ll be able to order from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog!  So…if there are things you’re wanting – you might want to get busy!

Of course, that means that the day AFTER one week from today….the brand new and amazing 2021-2022 Annual Catalog with be live!  Whoo-hoo!  THAT is the day I’ll be ordering all our share goodies to divide AND all your Special Bundles!  You’ve still got time to get in on both great deals, so…. 😉

My card today features a little already-available and a little coming-next week!  True Love DSP (available right now) sets the stage for Pansy Petals DSP flowers and sweet Pansy Patch sentiments (coming next week)!  Take a look-see:

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

And the color palette is from the Color Throwdown challenge.

I started with a piece of the True Love DSP and, using a Blending Brush, colored the panel with Crumb Cake ink.  Then I matted it on Poppy Parade for the card front.

I found two likely designs from the new Pansy Petals DSP and cut a Stitched Rectangle die cut from each one.  These are adhered to the front of the card with Liquid Glue.

I adhered a Gold Hoop Embellishment to the card front with a few Glue Dots.

Using the large and small outline die in the Pansy Die Set, I cut three pansies from the Pansy Petal DSP.  I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere one of the larger flowers over the hoop.

I tied a double-loop Linen Thread bow and added it with a Glue Dot.  Then I used double-stacked Dimensionals to add the second large flower.  The final – smallest – flower is adhered with a single Dimensional and a little Liquid Glue.

I stamped the Pansy Patch sentiment in Poppy Parade on a Basic White strip – snipped banner ends and then used a Dimensional under the right side of the strip and Liquid Glue on the left – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a second Pansy Patch sentiment in Poppy Parade on a Basic White panel.  I also used the smaller flower images with Bumble Bee and Pale Papapa ink to add some pansies here and there.  I added some flower centers in Tuxedo Black (there’s a tiny little stamp for that in the set!).

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

My Basic White Medium Envelope got more Pansy Patch flowers on the front…

…and more of the Pansy Petals DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  That True Love DSP is so cool – I love that you can coordinate it with ANY color just using a Blending Brush and some ink – or Stampin’ Blends or Watercolor Pencils!  And the Pansy Petals set is…amazing!  The gorgeous Pansy Patch flowers and sentiments, perfectly coordinated with the Pansy Dies (which cut flowers right from the Pansy Petals DSP – whoohooo!).

I hope you like! And – don’t forget – the Pansy Patch Bundle and Pansy Petals DSP are just a part of my Special Bundle #3: Let’s Get Floral Bundle.  There are a LOT of other flowery wonders to be found in that one – so be sure to check it out and get your order in!

So – we had a little wind overnight on Saturday.  Had a few trees down when we went out on Sunday morning.

Like…this one across the driveway!


So – Wayne pulled out the chainsaw and the heavy equipment to make it so we could leave if we wanted to.

Well – that set off a firestorm of tree felling and cutting!

Thought you might enjoy seeing my lumberjack at work – TODAY is his birthday!!   😉

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

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

When I saw the theme, I took it as tacit permission to pull out one of my favorite new bundles – the Butterfly Brilliance Bundle!  And – I also wanted to play with a new stamp set coming on 4 May in the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog – called Elegantly Said.  Take a look-see:

And – here’s our theme challenge!

And I pulled my layout from this week’s FabFriday challenge, too!

I started with a piece of the pretty Peony Garden DSP (retiring soon and on SALE!!) that I adhered with Liquid Glue to the front of a Petal Pink card base.

Next, I matted another design from Peony Garden on Evening Evergreen cardstock (this is one of our new 2021-2023 In Colors and will be available to you on 4 May!) using Liquid Glue – then I adhered that to the card front.

On a smaller piece of Natural Touch Specialty Paper (available ONLY until 3 May!) I stamped the large corner image from the Elegantly Said stamp set (coming on 4 May!) in Evening Evergreen.  I stamped it once in one corner then turned it and stamped it in the opposite corner.  Hint: ink takes a hot second to dry on this Specialty Paper – so…go get a drink and a snack.  Or…pull out your Heat Tool and wield it on the low setting like I did to speed it along! 😉

Once it was all dry, I matted that panel on Evening Evergreen and then adhered it to the card front.

I stamped the Elegantly Said sentiment in Petal Pink on Basic White and cut it with the smaller oval in the Double Oval Punch.  I used the scalloped oval to punch an Evening Evergreen mat.  I popped the sentiment onto the mat with Stampin’ Dimensionals, then adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

With two pieces of gold Simply Elegant trim (part of the Simply Elegant suite and coming on 4 May), I tied a big loopy bow and adhered it with a Glue Dot.

I stamped one of the butterflies from Butterfly Elegance (remember – a while back I told you that I’d cut the large butterfly image apart so that I can stamp just one at a time!) in Evening Evergreen on a piece of the Peony Garden DSP.  Then I cut it with the large die in the Brilliant Wings Die set.

I cut the same-size detailed Brilliant Wings butterfly from Vellum cardstock and adhered it to the solid butterfly with a Glue Dot.  Then I added some Genial Gems (new in the 2021-2022 AC!) down the body of the butterfly.

I used some Liquid Glue on top of the bow – and a double-stack of Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the butterfly over the bow.

I added a final Genial Gem to the sentiment oval and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped a second Elegantly Said sentiment in Petal Pink on a Basic White mat.  I also added the pretty flower image from the set a few times in Evening Evergreen.  Serious – how pretty is that flower!?? 🙂

I added a Genial Gem then used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to an Evening Evergreen mat and into the Petal Pink card base and the card was done!

My Basic White Medium Envelope got more of the Elegantly Said flowers in Evening Evergreen on the front…

…and more of the Peony Garden DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Butterfly Brilliance is…brilliant!!  And the bundled and gorgeous Brilliant Wings just makes it like a thousand times more amazing!  I am loving the beautiful sentiments and decorative images (that FLOWER!!) in the new Elegantly Said stamp set, too – and know you’re going to love it, too, when you get your hands on it in May!

I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Color & Contour Sneak Peek

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

I hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix 

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

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

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

Wayne – kicking back.

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

NOW he looks cool!

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

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

Stampin’ Up! Prized Peony Garden Love & Thanks for the Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Good morning, 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 For the Girls/Ladies!  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 thought “pretty flowers” when I saw the challenge – and the Prized Peony Bundle came to mind right away!  I combined it with some lovely Peony Garden DSP.  Take a look-see:

I used the sketch side of the FUSION challenge for my layout on this one.

The Just Add Ink challenge fits perfectly.  It’s pretty obvious which two I chose!

Finally, the Tic-Tac-Toe challenge comes into play. I used Pattern Paper – Free – Embellishment (although why the heck I didn’t add a new Bee Trinket is beyond me! 🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️)

I started with a piece of Gray Granite paper from the Peony Garden DSP that I matted on Gray Granite for the card front.

Next up, I took a second – flower-strewn piece – and cut the scalloped edge with the die in the Peony Die set.  Then I adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I wrapped some Mossy Meadow 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim twice around the panel, securing it in the back with Glue Dots.

I stamped the large Prized Peony image in Gray Granite on Basic White, then I cut it with the matching die in the Peony Die set.

I colored the flower with my Dark Petal Pink Stampin’ Blend and Light Mossy Meadow Blend – using the stamped blending markings in the image – which means it’s super easy to color!

I popped the flower onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the Prized Peony sentiment in Gray Granite on a piece of Petal Pink cardstock and cut it with the next-to-smallest rectangle in the Stitched So Sweetly Die set.

I popped the sentiment over the flower and trim with more Dimensionals.

I tied a simple bow using two pieces of the Mossy Meadow 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim and adhered it with a Glue Dot.

Some Champagne Rhinestones here and there finished off the card front.

On the inside, I stamped another sentiment from Prized Peony in Gray Granite on a Basic White panel.  Over it, in stamped-off-once Petal Pink, I added the geometric image from the set a few times.  In the corner, I stamped another Prized Peony image and colored it with my Blends.  Then I popped on one more Champagne Rhinestone.  Cuz I could! 😉

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

My Basic White Medium Envelope got another Prized Peony flower on the front…

…and more of the Peony Garden DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This gorgeous Prized Peony stamp set and bundled Peony Dies are coming back in the new 2021-2022 Annual Catalog.  Whoo-hoo!!  BUT – the bundle pricing (10% off!) is GOING AWAY – So…if you don’t have this beauty yet, get it before the current catalog ends on 3 May!  But – the Peony Garden DSP will NOT be back – so…get it right now (and…it’s just $9.20 right now – that’s a 20% savings!)

I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Field of Flowers Thinking of You!

Good Monday morning, y’all!  Welcome to the work week! Hope you had a good Easter – we did some work around the place then had a good dinner with some of our Honeybaked Ham we’d frozen at Christmas, sweet potatoes from the Mealthy and collard greens from our garden!  First meal from the garden in 2021!  Whoo-hoo!  And – of course, I whipped us up a couple of deviled eggs.  Cuz…holiday dinner! 🙂

Today’s card features a really pretty stamp set – that is retiring (😢) soon – called Field of Flowers.  I tried my hand at another clean and simple card with it – take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from the Freshly Made Sketches challenge this week.

And the pretty color palette is from the Hand Stamped Sentiments color challenge.

I started by placing a Very Vanilla panel into my Stamparatus.  On top of it – where it would be on the card – I placed a Stitched So Sweetly rectangle – also from Very Vanilla.  I held it in place with a little repositionable runner adhesive.

I first stamped the Field of Flowers sentiment in Highland Heather.

Next, I added the stem/leaves image in stamped off once Pear Pizzaz.  Then I stamped the flowers in So Saffron.  Notice that I let both hang off the edge of the die cut!

I picked up the die cut and stamped the leaves and flowers again on the card front itself.

Then I matted the panel on Highland Heather for the card front.

I used a piece of the Very Vanilla ribbon from the Forever Greenery Ribbon Combo Pack (ALSO retiring soon!) to wrap around the panel – securing it in back with Glue Dots.

I added the little Field of Flowers dragonfly in Highland Heather by the flower – then popped the die cut onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped a second Field of Flowers sentiment in Highland Heather on a Very Vanilla panel.  Then I stamped the stems in Pear Pizzazz, the flowers in So Saffron and the little dragonfly in Highland Heather!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Highland Heather 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 the Field of Flowers florals and dragonfly on the front…

…and I adhered some new Subtles 6″ x 6″ DSP in So Saffron to the envelope flap.  Note:  this is one of the NEW designs from the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog!

Et Voila!  Still not really my wheelhouse – had to keep turning away from my embellishment stash! – but…I DO love the Field of Flowers stamp set.

Field of Flowers – and it’s bundled Confetti Flowers Punch…

CONFETTI FLOWERS BORDER PUNCH

– are both retiring soon….like on 3 May! You can get that fun punch for just $9.20 – that’s 60% off!!). 🙂

I hope you like!

Finny had a good Easter.

It included a few rides in the truck – just around the place as we moved mulch – some time spend sleeping under the golf cart – some time spent sleeping in the house and…his Easter cookie!
