Stampin’ Up! Woven Rare Blessings 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 love the color combo for today’s challenge – and I know you will, too!  I decided to ink up a new set called Rare Blessings – and I combined it with a bit of Magnolia Lane DSP and a Woven Heirlooms sentiment  Take a look-see:

And – just in case it’s not totally obvious – here’s the color challenge we had!

I started with some appropriately-colored paper from the Magnolia Lane DSP and matted it on Petal Pink for the card front.

Next up is a piece of Basic Black card stock, embossed in the Corrugated 3D Embossing Folder, torn to size and adhered at a jaunty angle with Liquid Glue.

I stamped the big floral image from Rare Blessings in Tuxedo Black on Whisper White and cut it with a Rectangle Stitched Die.  Using the “splotch” image in the set, I added some Petal Pink around the top of the image and some Mossy Meadow around the bottom.  Then I colored the flowers with my Light and Dark Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends and the leaves with my Light and Dark Mossy Meadow Blends.

I wrapped some Mossy Meadow Linen Thread from the Magnolia Lane Ribbon Combo pack around the panel, securing it in the back with Glue Dots.

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

On another piece of Whisper White, I stamped a Rare Blessings sentiment in Mossy Meadow.  Over that I added the splotch image in Petal Pink.  Then I cut it with a small Rectangle Stitched Die.

I popped the sentiment onto the card front with Dimensionals.

I tied a double-length bow with the Mossy Meadow Linen Thread and adhered it with a Glue Dot.  A Pearl Basic Jewel finished off the card front.

On the inside, I stamped a sentiment from the Woven Heirlooms set in Mossy Meadow on a Whisper White panel.  Over top is some Rare Blessings splotches in Petal Pink.  I also added a smaller Rare Blessings flower in Tuxedo Black and colored it with my Blends.

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another Rare Blessings flower and splotch on the front…

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

Et Voila!  Rare Blessings is a truly lovely stamp set – and works so perfectly with the pretty paper from Magnolia Lane and the fonts/sentiments from Woven Heirlooms.  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Friendship and Birch Birthday!

Good morning!  It’s Sunday at…some time?…in Rome.  I think when you get this post, it’ll be around 1400 in the afternoon (which is totally the Department of Redundancy Department since 1400 can ONLY be in the afternoon which is why the 24-hour clock is so darned handy!).

And – we’ll probably be on the ship or close to it!

O. M.  G!  It’s finally here!  Cruising again!!  I got a real taste for being on the water (in a big ship with a comfy cabin and lots of good food!!) on the Alaska cruise last summer – and I’m very grateful to be getting a chance to do it again!!

I’ll post ship pictures tomorrow – and maybe to my FB page today – so…be watching!

My Birthday card today uses the spectacular, and also gorgeous, Beautiful Friendship and Birch background stamp sets.  Take a look-see!

The layout for this one comes from this week’s Sunday Stamps sketch challenge (I turned it on it’s side…)

I started by using my Stamparatus to stamp the Birch image in Sahara Sand on a panel of Whisper White.  Then I cut it down to card-front size and matted it on Seaside Spray using Liquid Glue.

I adhered a strip of the linen-look Pressed Petals Specialty DSP across the card front with Liquid Glue – then used SNAIL and Glue Dots to adhere two lengths of Rococo Rose 1/2″ Scalloped Linen Ribbon.

On another piece of Whisper White, I stamped the hydrangea image from Beautiful Friendship twice in Seaside Spray.  Then I added some Rococo Rose roses, Old Olive leaves – some full strength and some stamped-without-reinking – and some Highland Heather lilacs.

I also added the pretty sentiment in Old Olive.

I matted the panel on Seaside Spray and popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped two more Rococo Rose roses and a couple of Old Olive leaves on Whisper White and fussy cut them.  The leaves and one of the roses is adhered with Liquid Glue – and I popped the second rose next to the sentiment with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a double-loop bow in Linen Thread and a Purple Posy 2019-2021 In Color Faceted Dot and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped a whole cottage garden of flowers from Beautiful Friendship in Rococo Rose, Highland Heather and Old Olive on a Whisper White panel.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Seaside Spray 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 a few (okay – a lot!) more flowers on the front..

…and some more of the Pressed Petals Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Beautiful Friendship lets you garden-on-paper!  No rain or weeding required!  And – the cottage-garden look you can create is just gorgeous!  I hope you like!

Now – off the the Lido Deck! 😉

P.S  Saturday was a good day in Rome – will post more about it later – but…we only ate gelato ONCE.  We had tiramisu, too.  But…it was so tiny….  We went to a spot that is apparently the #1 Tiramisu in Rome.  Called Two Sizes. We posited that there were two doors – a narrow one to go IN and a much WIDER one to go OUT.  But – in fact it was that they had Tiramisu – in a variety of flavors (who knew?!?) – in…yes.  Two Sizes.  I chose small. 😉

Stampin’ Up! Tasteful Woven Textures Card

Happy Happy Hawwwmp Day, y’all!  Guess what?

What, Mary?

Well – one week and about 6 hours from that day’s blog post going live…we’ll be headed to the airport!  Whoo-hooo!

Gelato.  Baklave.  Tiramisu.  Dolmas.  Lasagna.  Spanakopita.  Spaghetti Carbonara!  Tiramisu – yes, I said it twice.  IT.  IS. THAT. GOOD!

See?  Been practicing my Greek and Italian! I think I’m ready!

My card today uses the new Tasteful Textures stamp set and bundled Tasteful Backgrounds Dies – paired up with some beautiful Woven Threads DSP.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from this week’s Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge.

And the color scheme – ALL the new 2019-2021 In Colors! – is from the Fab Friday challenge!

 

The Woven Threads DSP was a pretty obvious choice for this color challenge – so…I took the obvious route – and matted a piece on Pretty Peacock for the card front.

Next up is a piece in Rococo Rose – also matted on Pretty Peacock and adhered with Liquid Glue.

I cut a narrow strip of Terracotta Tile paper from the Woven Threads DSP and cut one of the pretty designs from it using the Tasteful Backgrounds Dies.  Then I matted it on Pretty Peacock with Liquid Glue.

I wrapped a piece of new Pretty Peacock 1/2″ Scalloped Linen Ribbon around that panel – securing it in the back with Glue Dots.  I tied a faux bow with a second short length of the same ribbon.  Then I popped the whole thing onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped a sentiment from the Tasteful Textures stamp set in Pretty Peacock on Whisper White and cut it with a Stitched Shapes Framelits oval.  I used Liquid Glue and a couple of Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the sentiment to the card front.

I added some 2019-2020 In Color Faceted Dots – in Pretty Peacock and Seaside Spray – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a flourish image from Tasteful Textures in stamped-off-once Balmy Blue in the center of a Whisper White panel.  Over the top of that, I added a second sentiment in Pretty Peacock.

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another stamped-off-once Balmy Blue flourish – I put it under the address area! – on the front…

…and I picked one of my Woven Threads DSPs and added it to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Wow!  The Tasteful Textures stamp set and bundled Tasteful Background Dies seem to have just been made to coordinate with the Woven Threads DSP, don’t you think?  I love how this one turned out.  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Very Versailles 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 pulled out a little linen-look Woven Threads DSP and the Very Versailles stamp set to create today’s vintage-y thank-you card.  Take a look-see:

And here’s our sketch!

I started with a piece of Woven Threads DSP – doesn’t it look like a piece of linen fabric??! – and stamped the wonderful script image from Very Versailles in Sahara Sand in two corners.  Over the top, I added the leaves image – one of the prettiest I’ve seen! – in Pretty Peacock.

Then I cut the middle out with a new Stitched Nested Labels Die.

On the cut-out piece, I used Versamark to stamp the frame image from Very Versailles.  Then I sprinkled it with Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed it.  I popped the piece back into its spot with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I punched out a Pretty Peacock 1 3/8″ Scallop Circle and adhered it over the embossed frame with Liquid Glue.

On another little piece of the same Woven Threads DSP, I stamped the sentiment in Pretty Peacock and cut it with my 1 1/8″ Scallop Circle Punch.  Then I popped it over the Pretty Peacock scalloped mat with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I used Glue Dots to adhere a couple of leaves from the Bird Ballad Trinkets and a Linen Thread double-loop bow – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I used more Woven Threads DSP for my inner panel, first stamping a second Very Versailles sentiment in Pretty Peacock.  I added the script image in stamped-off-once Sahara Sand and leaves in stamped-off-once Pretty Peacock.

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

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got the stamped-off-once Sahara Sand script and stamped-off-once Pretty Peacock leaves on the front…

…and on the envelope flap I added more Woven Threads DSP and some leaves (yes – I really LOVE this image!)…

Et Voila!  Oh my goodness, y’all – how wonderful are the images in this Very Versailles stamp set??  And they’re perfectly perfect for adding to the beautiful papers in the Woven Threads DSP!  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Parcels & Petals Gift Box and Birthday Card

Good morning, y’all!  Welcome back to the work-week.
Bleh.

I’ve got a cute little birthday card to share with you – this was one of our make-and-take’s from our team meeting yesterday.  It uses the Parcels & Petals stamp set and bundled Perfect Parcels Dies.  Amy provided us with an example – using the Bird Banter DSP.  We sort of went our own way and used the Prrssed Petals Specialty DSP.  Take a look-see at our projects!

Now – I’m just teasing you with the box – cuz I’m not going to cover it in this post.

I’m so mean! 😉

I promise – we’ll make a box in a Saturday video – it’ll be a heckuva lot easier to show than to tell!

For today, let’s look at the Birthday card!

I started with some Pressed Petals Specialty DSP and matted it on Very Vanilla for the card front.


Next up, I used the pretty filigree die in the Perfect Parcel Die set to cut a shape in Mossy Meadow.  I cut it in half and adhered each piece to the card front with Liquid Glue – separating them to make it “bigger”!

On a Very Vanilla panel, I stamped the flower image from Parcels & Petals in Rococo Rose, then added a few leaves in Mossy Meadow.  Then I cut the image with the largest circle Stitched Shapes Framelits die and popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.


On a piece of Crumb Cake, I stamped the Parcels & Petals sentiment in Mossy Meadow and cut it with the Timeless Label Punch.  Then I added “faux” stitches with my Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Write Marker.

I added the sentiment with a little Liquid Glue and a Stampin’ Dimensional.


I added some Rococo Rose 2019-2021 In Color Faceted Dots and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added more of the Parcels & Petals image in Rococo Rose and leaves in Mossy Meadow to a Very Vanilla panel.


I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Very Vanilla mat and into my Crumb Cake card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensional and the card was done.

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got the Parcels & Petals flowers on the front…


…and some more of the gorgeous Pressed Petals Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.


Et Voila!  This is a really pretty set – and the Perfect Parcel Die set is a wonderful complement to the Parcels & Petals stamp set.  I particularly love it when paired with the Pressed Petal Specialty DSP, don’t you?  I hope you like!

TTFN

 

 

 

P.S.  We’ll look at the box this weekend in a video, shall we? 🙂


HOST CODE FOR 1 JUN – 15 JUN: VXTTY7PW

Use this host code when you order and receive a free gift from me! But, if your order is over $150, please don’t use this code (you’ll miss out on your own Stampin’ Rewards if you use it) but you’ll still get the free gift. The free gift is your choice of any item valued up to $10.00 from any active catalog! And – you can even select one of the Host-exclusive sets! See my Rewards page for more details.


New 3D Embossing Folder Plate Now Available!

The new 3D Embossing Folder Plate (item 149658) is now available to order! It’s designed to work with our new-style 3D embossing folders (which are thinner than our old-style Dynamic folders).

You can click on the picture above and open the flyer – then print it and keep it by your embossing machine and new 3D Embossing Folder Plate.  It’s got your new “sandwich” information right on it!

Remember that carryover 3D embossing folders will not be available to order at the start of the new catalog but I’ll let you know when they’re available to order.

Also keep in mind that we expect to receive staggered plate shipments in all markets during June and July as we build inventory. Which means, you may experience periods of time when it is unavailable to order if inventory is depleted; it will become available to order again when inventory is replenished.

How to Use the New Plate

The new plate makes up the difference in measurement between our old-style Dynamic Folders and our new-style 3D Folders in most die-cutting machines. The 3D Embossing Folder Plate replaces the Standard Cutting Pads in your 3D embossing folder sandwich for continued high-quality emboss results.

To create your emboss sandwich:

  • Use a die-cutting & embossing machine platform as a base; no matter which machine you’re using, use the standard platform which comes with your machine.
  • Use the 3D Embossing Folder with your paper in the middle.
  • Then use the 3D Embossing Folder Plate on top.

Given the differences in machines and platforms, you may still have to add a shim to get your desired embossing results. (You can also spritz your paper before embossing to maximize your embossed impressions.)

Without the new 3D Embossing Folder Plate, you will need to use several shims with the Standard Cutting Pad in your 3D embossing folder sandwich, depending on the die-cutting & embossing machine you use. Most machines will need between three to five sheets of cardstock to shim. Please be careful in how you shim; start out with fewer sheets first, then add sheets to get your desired results.  Stampin’ Up! won’t be responsible for replacing products broken due to using a sandwich which is too thick for a machine.

Finn Fan Fix


 

This was Finn-y’s Sunday.

THIS was MY Sunday!

Yep.  It was Inkin’ Krew Meeting at my friend Sue’s house!  Our first meeting with Amy via Zoom!

First, we all chatted and ate our lunches in Sue’s really wonderful craft room.  And watched the hummingbirds out in her garden.

Then, we “dialed in” to the Zoom meeting and got all the news and updates.  And some free goodies from Amy!

Y’all remember that episode of Big Bang Theory where Sheldon was interacting with everyone thru his computer?

Wave, Amy….!!

Once the business was done, we “hung up” and made the projects Amy had worked up for us.  The Parcels & Petals Gift Box and Birthday Card (yes – the ones in my post!).

As always – we had a great time – learned some new techniques – and spent time with friends.  One of the BEST benefits of being a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator.

Meanwhile – back at the house…

Stampin’ Up! Path of Pressed Petals Sympathy Card!

Good morning, y’all!  Here we are on Sunday!  The weekend progresses apace – WAY faster than two days during the week, don’t they?  What the heck is up with that??!

If you were able to join me last night for my FB live – I appreciate you spending part of your weekend with me.  If not, but you’d like to see the replay, here you go!

The card we made – a Sympathy card (but we all agreed this would be a wonderful wedding card – different sentiment, of course.  LOL) – uses some pieces and parts from the new Pressed Petals suite!  The new Pressed Petals Specialty DSP in this suite is my new fave-paper-of-all-time….ever!  And look what happens when you combine it with the Path of Petals stamp set and the Heirloom 3D Embossing Folders and Dies (that coordinate with the Woven Heirlooms stamp set).  Take a look-see:


Boom-chakalaka! 🙂

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


I started by adhering some wonderful linen-look paper from the Pressed Petals DSP to a Rococo Rose mat for the card front.  Then I took some of the wild roses paper, adhered it to Rococo Rose and then to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I created the frame using the new Heirloom 3D Embossing Folders and Dies – I’ll be getting the new 3D Embossing Folder Plate soon, but for now I used 4 sheets of cardstock as a shim.  I cut the frame from Crumb Cake first, then embossed it in the folder.  I used a Sponge Dauber to brush Crumb Cake over the embossed parts of the frame.


I used my Bone Folder to add some creases in the corners of the frame to create some depth, then I added the frame to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the Path of Petals sentiment in Merry Merlot on Very Vanilla and cut it out with a Stitched Shapes Oval die.  Then I popped that inside the frame with Dimensionals.


I created the flower using “petals” from the new Pressed Petals Specialty Washi Tape and a 1/2″ Circle – you can see how in the video!  Then I added a Perennial Essence Floral Center.

I made a loop-de-loop with some Mossy Meadow Linen Thread from the Magnolia Lane Ribbon Combo and some Glue Dots, then adhered my flower over top with another Glue Dot, and the card front was done.


On the inside, I used stamped-off-once Mossy Meadow, Rococo Rose and Crumb Cake to add the three-step flower image from Path of Petals to the middle of a Very Vanilla Panel.  Over top I added a second sentiment from Path of Petals in Merry Merlot.


I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Rococo Rose 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 Path of Petals flowers in full-strength Mossy Meadow, Rococo Rose and Crumb Cake…


…and more of the wild rose paper from the Pressed Petals Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.


Et Voila! I think it’s pretty obvious why the Pressed Petals suite is going to be a fave of mine – and the Pressed Petals Specialty DSP already is!  Just go right ahead and get you a pack Right.  This.  Minute.  I mean it.  Don’t even wait!  Heck – get the whole suite – you won’t regret it one second!  I hope you like!

TTFN

 

 

 

P.S.  DO get the new 3D Embossing Folder Plate, y’all – it’s going to make your life much easier with our new folders!  Just sayin’!


HOST CODE FOR 1 JUN – 15 JUN: VXTTY7PW

Use this host code when you order and receive a free gift from me! But, if your order is over $150, please don’t use this code (you’ll miss out on your own Stampin’ Rewards if you use it) but you’ll still get the free gift. The free gift is your choice of any item valued up to $10.00 from any active catalog! And – you can even select one of the Host-exclusive sets! See my Rewards page for more details.


New 3D Embossing Folder Plate Now Available!

The new 3D Embossing Folder Plate (item 149658) is now available to order! It’s designed to work with our new-style 3D embossing folders (which are thinner than our old-style Dynamic folders).

You can click on the picture above and open the flyer – then print it and keep it by your embossing machine and new 3D Embossing Folder Plate.  It’s got your new “sandwich” information right on it!

Remember that carryover 3D embossing folders will not be available to order at the start of the new catalog but I’ll let you know when they’re available to order.

Also keep in mind that we expect to receive staggered plate shipments in all markets during June and July as we build inventory. Which means, you may experience periods of time when it is unavailable to order if inventory is depleted; it will become available to order again when inventory is replenished.

How to Use the New Plate

The new plate makes up the difference in measurement between our old-style Dynamic Folders and our new-style 3D Folders in most die-cutting machines. The 3D Embossing Folder Plate replaces the Standard Cutting Pads in your 3D embossing folder sandwich for continued high-quality emboss results.

To create your emboss sandwich:

  • Use a die-cutting & embossing machine platform as a base; no matter which machine you’re using, use the standard platform which comes with your machine.
  • Use the 3D Embossing Folder with your paper in the middle.
  • Then use the 3D Embossing Folder Plate on top.

Given the differences in machines and platforms, you may still have to add a shim to get your desired embossing results. (You can also spritz your paper before embossing to maximize your embossed impressions.)

Without the new 3D Embossing Folder Plate, you will need to use several shims with the Standard Cutting Pad in your 3D embossing folder sandwich, depending on the die-cutting & embossing machine you use. Most machines will need between three to five sheets of cardstock to shim. Please be careful in how you shim; start out with fewer sheets first, then add sheets to get your desired results.  Stampin’ Up! won’t be responsible for replacing products broken due to using a sandwich which is too thick for a machine.

I’ve been busy with my thinning scissors.  I really want to clip the Man – but…even though we’d never show in the breed ring (for many reasons!) – I would really hate for his coat to come back in “wrong”.  And I don’t have a good guard for my horse clippers.

So…dog coat thinning scissors it is.

Working on skirt and pantaloonies.  And around his collar…where the knots get.

Wait – what?  You can’t see a difference?!?

Look close.

I cut about two dog’s worth off! 🙁

Humor me, people!

Stampin’ Up! Perennial Essence and A Little Lace

Good Friday morning, my peeps!  Hope the week has treated you well!  And that the weekend is fixin’ to do the same!

For those of you who ordered Catalog shares – the goodies are IN THE HOUSE!  And I’m chopping and cutting and packaging!  Will get everyone’s paper and embellishments on the way quick as I can! 🙂

Now – our card for today puts the fun A Little Lace stamp set on top of some beautiful Perennial Essence DSP.  With a piece of “lace” (really a die cut from the new Stitched Lace Die set which is bundled with A Little Lace – for a 10% savings!).  Take a look-see:

And I used the sketch from Sunday Stamps this week to inspire my layout.

I started by matting some beautiful Perennial Essence DSP on Mossy Meadow card stock for the card front.

The next layer is Very Vanilla – which I cut with the two dies in the new Stitched Lace Die set.  First I cut the large panel – then I used the “edge” die to cut the scalloped edge on all four sides.  I adhered the “piece of lace” to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I cut two lengths of Petal Pink 5/8″ Organdy Striped Ribbon and adhered them in a “x” with Glue Dots.

On a piece of Very Vanilla, I stamped the large image from A Little Lace in Petal Pink using my Stamparatus.  Also with the Stamparatus, I stamped the sentiment in Mossy Meadow.  Then I cut it with a Stitched Rectangle Die – and I popped it over the ribbon with Stampin’ Dimensionals.


I added a Pearl Basic Jewel and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added the A Little Lace image in Petal Pink on a Very Vanilla panel.


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

\My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got another A Little Lace flower on the front…


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


Et Voila!  Wow!  I LOVE this Stitched Lace Die – don’t you??  It means you can make all sorts of beautiful lace accents for all your projects.  And it’s perfect with it’s bundled A Little Lace stamp set – AND the totally unrelated Perennial Essence DSP!  How fun is that??  I hope you like!

TTFN

Stampin’ Up! Time For Tags and Lace Birthday

Happy happy HAWWWMP Day!  Did you have fun yesterday with the new catalog?  I sure did!

My credit card?  Not so amused. 😉

But it was fun fun fun till her hubby took the CC awaaayyyyy…..

Not really.  He knows that’s just silly.

My computer auto-fills it anyway! LOL!!

So – for my first non-sneak-peek-yes-you-can-get-it-all-RIGHT-NOW card for the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog – I’ve got a little look at one of the fun Host Exclusive stamp sets called Time For Tags.  Which works perfectly with the new Timeless Tags Punch.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Healing Hugs Meets Nine Lives

Well.  Here we are.  A Monday that is not a holiday.  Ever notice those Holiday-Mondays are the exception?  And – ever notice that you’re not as bubbly on a non-Holiday-Monday as you are on a Holiday-Monday?

I don’t think I’d need a government grant to study that particular correlation, do you??

Anywho – it is what it is, heh?

My friend has a friend who is having some surgery this week, so my friend (the first friend in this not-so-well-constructed sentence) asked me for a get well card.  With a cat.  So…out came my Nine Lives stamp set and coordinating Cat Punch.  And Healing Hugs.  ALL of which are carrying over!  To the new catalog.  Which goes live TOMORROW at noon Mountain Time!  Whoo-Hooo!!  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! It Starts With Art 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 – so, 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!

When I saw the color challenge, my brain gravitated to the Follow Your Art suite.  So out came the It Starts With Art stamp set, a little Follow Your Art DSP and the fun Button Button Embossing Folder (all of which will be available to you in JUST FIVE DAYS!!).  Take a look-see:

Here’s the color scheme!

And – I pulled from this week’s Tuesday Morning Sketches challenge for the layout.

I started with some Coastal Cabana paper from the Follow Your Art DSP and embossed it in the Button Button folder, then matted it on Daffodil Delight for the card front!

Next up is a small panel of Whisper White – also embossed in the Button Button folder and matted on Daffodil Delight.

I created the diagonal element of the sketch with some carrying-over Granny Apple Green 1/2″ Textured Weave Ribbon – I cut four short lengths and adhere them directly to the card front with Liquid Glue.

For the It Starts With Art sentiment, I stamped it in Granny Apple Green on Whisper White.  Smack over the sentiment, in stamped-off-once Daffodil Delight, I added two little re-inkers!

I cut the sentiment with a Stitched Nested Label and cut a larger Daffodil Delight label for the mat.  I adhered them together with Liquid Glue and popped it over the ribbons with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I pulled out my Follow Your Art Embellishment Kit and strung a little silver heart locket onto a Coastal Cabana paper clip and then hooked that to a Coastal Cabana felt heart.  I adhered the whole thing to the sentiment with a couple of Glue Dots, then added a tiny Whisper White Solid Baker’s Twine bow with one more Glue Dot.  And that was it for the card front!

On the inside, I stamped two more re-inkers from It Starts With Art in stamped off TWICE Daffodil Delight on a Whisper White panel.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Daffodil Delight mat and into my Granny Apple Green card base, popped the card base on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got two stamped-off-once Daffodil Delight re-inkers on the front…

…and then I added a little more Follow Your Art DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  The Follow Your Art set is just so perfect for all us crafty folk, don’t you think?  The It Starts With Art set – and it’s bundled Arts & Crafts Dies – will let you express your creativity all day long – and no fussy cutting those ribbons and inkers and pens!  I hope you like – and are counting the days with me!
