Stampin’ Up! Art Gallery & Brilliant Wings with Video Tutorial

Good morning and happy Friday!  Only a few days left for Sale-A-Bration, y’all – so…if there are still some of the free goodies you’re wanting – now’s the time!

I’ve also got my Butterfly Bouquet Special Bundle – with some add-ons! – available for you to order.  Check it out down below! 🙂

Speaking of Butterfly Bouquet, I’m a little obsessed with the Brilliant Wings die cut butterflies right now!  If you were able to join me for my YouTube live yesterday, I appreciate you spending part of your day with me – and getting another peek at them!   If not, here’s the replay!

For this one, I paired the Brilliant Wings butterflies with sentiments from the Art Gallery Bundle – including the cool die cut sentiment from Floral Gallery! – and a bit of Fine Art Floral DSP.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one – although it’s not a mini slim card  – comes from the current Mojo Monday sketch challenge!

Here’s a cool thing.  This particular design in the Fine Art Floral DSP is an exact match to the design in the Golden Garden Specialty Acetate!  I’ve used that here to add a little pizzazz to this card!  You can get 6 card fronts from a 12″ x 12″ sheet of both papers!!

I cut a piece of the Fine Art Floral and the corresponding piece of the Golden Garden Specialty Acetate, then I stacked them up (aligning the pattern) and cut the center out with a Stitched Rectangle Die.

I adhered the frame and cutout piece of the Fine Art Floral DSP to a Terracotta Tile mat using Liquid Glue.  Then I adhered the acetate piece using my Fine Tip Glue Pen – putting little dots of glue only behind the printed parts of the acetate.

I cut a piece of Basic White with the largest square Stitched Shapes Die and popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Next, I cut the big sentiment from Floral Gallery in Terracotta Tile – then adhered just three of the words to the square with Liquid Glue.

I wrapped a piece of Terracotta Tile Scalloped Edge Linen Ribbon around the bottom of the panel, securing it in back with Glue Dots.

From a piece of the Butterfly Bijou 6″ x 6″ DSP (coming on 2 March), I used the big die in the Brilliant Wings die set (also 2 March!) to cut 6 butterflies.  I used a couple of smaller detailed dies to cut three Petal Pink butterflies and a single Terracotta Tile butterfly.  I adhered the detailed Petal Pink die cuts to two of the DSP butterflies and the Terracotta Tile detailed cut with Liquid Glue.

Then I adhered the butterflies to the card front with Liquid Glue – and tucked a Stampin’ Dimensional under them as needed to support them!

Finally, I added a few Champagne Rhinestone Jewels and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped an Art Gallery sentiment in Terracotta Tile on a Basic White panel.  In the corner, I stamped the big flower (this is a three-step-image!) – the large image is Petal Pink then the second and third step images are stamped-off-once Terracotta Tile! 🙂

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

My Basic White Medium Envelope got more of the pretty Art Gallery flower on the front…

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

Et Voila!  Yes – yes, I CAN figure out how to put a butterfly from the Butterfly Bouquet bundle on almost any card!  🙂  And they look awesome with the gorgeous and stunning Fine Art Floral DSP with some sentiments and images from the Art Gallery Bundle, don’t you think!?

Et Voila!  I hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix 

After getting off the treadmill in the morning, I’m a little sweaty.  And a little pissy cuz…treadmill! Bleh.

And yesterday morning I was also just tired – hadn’t slept enough the night before.

So…it was a little (by which I mean a LOT!) envy-inducing to find…

Totally sacked out.

Treadmill schmedmill, says Finn.  That’s just silly, Mom! 😂

Stampin’ Up! Tranquil Thoughts for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Lots of Heart 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 sketch challenge 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 our sketch, I sort of immediately thought of the new Lots of Heart bundle (not even sort of thinking outside the box!). But – I didn’t want to do Valentine’s.  Nope – I wanted to do a little something different – so you could see how versatile this bundle could be!  So…I teamed it up with the Peaceful Moments stamp set.  Take a look-see:

And…here’s our sketch (as you can see – I stayed right smack “in the box”!

I decided that not-red and not-pink was the way to go, so….the Just Us Girls color challenge was the perfect inspiration!

I started with a piece of Seaside Spray cardstock that I stamped all over – in Seaside Spray ink for a tone-on-tone effect – with the polka-dot heart image from the Lots of Heart stamp set.  Then I embossed it in the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder for the card front.

I matted a piece of Hydrangea Hill DSP on Misty Moonlight and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue

I cut the Misty Moonlight scrolly-heart strip using the die in the bundled Many Hearts Die set and adhered it with Liquid Glue.

Using the large – lacey-edged heart die, I cut a Balmy Blue and a Basic White heart.  Then I snipped the lace-edge off the white heart and adhered it to the Balmy Blue heart.  Then I adhered it to the card front with more Liquid Glue.

Using my Stamparatus, I stamped the plaid heart from Lots of Heart in Misty Moonlight – then cut it with the coordinating die in Many Hearts.

I popped the plaid heart onto the other layers with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Using a couple of Glue Dots, I adhered a multi-loop figure-8 bow made with Misty Moonlight/Silver Baker’s Twine from the Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack.

I stamped a Peaceful Moments sentiment in Balmy Blue on Basic White and cut it with the next-to-smallest rectangle in my go-to Stitched So Sweetly die set.

I popped the sentiment over the bow with Stampin’ Dimensionals, added a few silver Metallic Pearls and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped a second Peaceful Moments sentiment in Balmy Blue on Basic White.  In the corner, I adhered a pretty Misty Moonlight die cut from the Many Hearts set with Liquid Glue.

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

My Basic White Medium Envelope got a Lots of Heart image – stamped in Tuxedo Black – on the front. I colored it with my Light Balmy Blue and Light Misty Moonlight Stampin’ Blends, plus my Seaside Spray Stampin’ Write Marker…

…and I added more of the Hydrangea Hill DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila! I really love this Lots of Heart Bundle – with the amazing Many Hearts Die Set.  I’m not a Valentine’s person, really, but this bundle offers a ton of OTHER options. Either by itself – or paired with other sentiment sets!

I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Berry Delightful Blessings Corner-Fold Card with Video Tutorial!

Good morning and happy Friday!  Hoping that your week went well – even with all the….well.  You know.  I don’t know about y’all but I am so over all of this…you know. 🥺

So – let’s talk about something FUN!  Like…FREE Designer Series Paper with a bundled FREE stamp set!  Did I say Free??  Yep – with a $100 purchase before shipping & tax, you might pick the goodies in today’s card.

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

I saw this cute Corner-Fold card design on the talented Rachel Tessman’s blog and decided to give it a go.  I even used the same Berry Blessings stamp set and bundled Berry Delightful DSP – cuz I love it.  A LOT!  Take a look-see:

I played along with the Anything Goes challenge over at the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.

I started with a 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ piece of Pacific Point cardstock, that I scored and folded at 4 1/4″ (just like a regular side-fold card).

I used Stampin’ Seal to adhere a piece of Granny Apple Green plaid Berry Delightful DSP to the card front.

Then, using my Paper Trimmer, I cut twice to create the twisting corner element.  You can see how to do it in the video (where I show you how to use Rachel’s Post-It Note trick!) – and here’s a cut-template.

Once the cuts were done, I turned the corner – bringing the top right-hand corner in towards the middle of the card – and using my Bone Folder to burnish the fold.  It’s a lot easier to see in the video. 😉

With a little more Stampin’ Seal, I adhered the turned-down corner to the card front.

I matted another piece of the Berry Delightful DSP on Shaded Spruce and adhered it to the square.

Using the same DSP as on the square – I matted a strip on Shaded Spruce and adhered it across the bottom portion of the card with Liquid Glue.

On a piece of Whisper White (or Basic White will for sure work!), I stamped the Berry Blessings sentiment in Shaded Spruce and cut it with a Tasteful Labels die.  Then I popped it onto the DSP strip with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I colored a new Opal Round with my Dark Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blend, added it to the card front and the card front was done.

I stamped the blueberry outline image from Berry Blessings in Pacific Point on a piece of Whisper White then added the fill image in stamped-off-once Pacific Point.  I added the leaves outline in Shaded Spruce and then the leaves fill with Granny Apple Green.  I cut it with the large circle die in Tasteful Labels and popped it onto the inside of the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

For the inside, I added the blueberries and leaves in the corner of a Whisper White panel.

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

My Whisper White (or Basic White) Medium Envelope got the Berry Blessings blueberries and leaves on the front…

…and more of the Berry Delightful DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Seriously – is it any wonder that I love this fun fold?  Look at how much of the gorgeous Berry Delightful DSP you get to show off!  And it is SO worth showing off, isn’t it??

With the added bonus of getting it – plus the bundled Berry Blessings stamp set! – for FREE – it’s a deal you’re going to want to get in on!  Just place an order of $100 or more (before shipping & tax) – and this wonderful bundle could be your Sale-A-Bration Pick!!

I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Floating & Fluttering Garden Wishes Sneak Peek

Happy Friday!  Are y’all recovering from your food comas?  Got your stretchy pants washed and waiting for the next eating frenzy (aka Christmas Dinner)??  LOL

We got our food-exchange accomplished in good order yesterday – and all ended up with way too much to eat.  So pretty much par for the course – other than us being at our house and them being at theirs!  Thanksgiving-in-the-time-of-COVID.

Stampin’ Up! Many Mates Flowers For Every Season!

Happy Monday, y’all!

Well – once my back decided that it could calm down a bit on Sunday, the weekend went pretty well for me – we had a fun Inkin’ Krew meeting yesterday on Zoom – and we even made some cards “together’!  With our team spread out all over the country, it’s totally cool to be able to see everyone and laugh and craft together!!  We have an awesome team – and more folks joining us all the time – especially with the amazing joining special we’ve got going right now!

My card today is not one of the ones we worked on in our meeting – but you’ll get to see those in the next few days.  Today, I have a quick and super easy card for you to make with the beautiful Flowers For Every Season Memories & More card pack and…yes, again!…the Many Mates stamp set.  Take a look-see:

I borrowed the layout for this one from this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

I started with a piece of Pretty Peacock cardstock that I embossed in the new Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder and matted on Bumble Bee for the card front.

I pulled two of the smaller cards from the Flowers For Every Season Memories & More Card Pack and cut them down a bit.  Then I matted them on Bumble Bee card stock.

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

Using Glue Dots, I adhered a length of Bumble Bee 1/4″ 2020-2022 In Color RIbbon.

On the second panel – the one with the frame – I stamped a sentiment from Many Mates in Pretty Peacock.  Then I popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a Bumble Bee 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dot and the card front was done.

On the inside, I stamped a second Many Mates sentiment in Pretty Peacock on a Whisper White Panel.  Across the bottom of the panel, I adhered a Bumble Bee-matted strip of Flowers For Every Season DSP.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Bumble Bee mat and into my Just Jade card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got one of the flower stickers from the Flowers For Every Season Memories & More Card Pack on the front…

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

Et Voila!  I do so love this Flowers For Every Season Memories & More Card Pack – it’s so handy and makes quick and easy cards so…quick and easy.  And beautiful!!

I hope you like!

House guard….POST!

On full alert.

I shall not eat while at my post.

I shall alert my family if there is a deer.  Or a mud dauber.  Or a leaf.

I shall stay ever vigilant.

The first, the last – yes, the very final defense….

I will not sleep…

Well – maybe just rest my chin for a minute….

Stampin’ Up! Vintage Blossoms in Bloom Birthday With Video Tutorial

Good morning and happy Friday.  It’s been quite a week, has it not?  I surely don’t know where we’re headed from here – it all feels broken.  Maybe we can all help – be kind.  To EVERYone.  Let’s see if that works.  It surely can’t hurt!

And – let’s maybe spread some beauty and love – with our cards, shall we?  We’ve seen the smiles that our paper creations can bring – the comfort in hard times.  The moment of lightness in dark days.  They seem like little things – paper, ink, some ribbon…Dimensionals!  But – sometimes they are just THE thing.

Well – that was a lot deeper than I planned.  Sorry!

But I’m totally right.

Admit it.  😉

If you were able to join me for my YouTube video yesterday – I appreciate you spending some of your day with me!  If not, but you’d like to see the replay…here ’tis!

We all send cards for birthdays – and today’s would be a great one!  It uses the new and WUNNERMUS Blossoms in Bloom bundle with its spectacular floral images and the stunning die cuts.  Take a look-see:

This one is going in the pot for the floral theme challenge at the Global Design Project.

And I think it works as a layered card for The Card Concept, too!

The florals for this one are reminscent of a card I saw created by Anna Helman over at Stampin Scrapping and More! 🙂

I started off by cutting the large floral die cut from the Many Layered Blossoms from a piece of Brass Foil.  Before I cut it – I stuck the Brass Foil onto a piece of Adhesive Sheet.

Next, I placed a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock into my Stamparatus and used it to stamp the large floral from Blossoms in Bloom.  I placed my die cut onto the card front and used it to correctly place all the stamps.

The large blue flowers were first.  I inked them with Seaside Spray ink, spritzed them with water and then stamped them.  I dried the image off and then used a Sponge Dauber to add some Misty Moonlight in the middle of the flowers.

I repeated the stamp placement using the die cut for the small flowers – stamped in Highland Heather – and the leaves – stamped in Old Olive daubed with Mossy Meadow.

I ran the panel thru my die cutting and embossing machine in the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder, then I sponged it with Crumb Cake using a wedge of Stampin’ Sponge.  Finally, I matted the panel on Mossy Meadow.

I pulled the backing off the die cut and adhered it to the card front.

On a piece of Very Vanilla, I stamped the Blossoms in Bloom sentiment in Mossy Meadow and cut it with an Ornate Frames die.  Then I embossed it in the Tasteful Textile folder and sponged it with Crumb Cake.

I tied a Linen Thread double-loop bow and adhered it with a Glue Dot.  Then I used a Glue Dot on top of the bow – and some double-stack Stampin’ Dimensionals – and adhered the sentiment.  A few Pearl Basic Jewels and some Glue-Dot-adhered Antiqued Corners finished the card front!

On the inside, I borrowed an idea from Kylie Bertucci and adhered part of a Brass Foil Many Layered Blossoms die cut and a small flower to a Very Vanilla panel.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Mossy Meadow 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 some Blossoms in Bloom flowers in Seaside Spray and stamped-off-once Highland Heather, plus some stamped-off-once Old Olive/Mossy Meadow leaves and stamped-off-once So Saffron flower middles on the front….

…and a couple on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  How.  Spectacular.  Is.  This.  Bundle?!?  Blossoms in Bloom – with it’s Many Layered Blossoms Die set bundled with it – will let you make blooms for DAYS!  Weeks, even! And I adore them all vintagized with the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder and some Antiqued Corners!  I hope you like!

And – you could pick THIS BUNDLE as your FREE BUNDLE when you join Stampin’ Up! during the month of June!! 😉

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

You may notice – in these hot summer weeks – that MOST of the pictures I share of the fur-kid are of him…sleeping.

In the air conditioning.

Cuz he’s furry AND smart! 🙂

He’s not too interested in spending extra time in the hot.  He’s usually to be found on a cool smooth floor – preferably right in front of an AC vent!

Except…this time.

He’s on carpet.  No vent around.

And – when you see the spot from the other direction…

Tucked in a corner, behind the chair – with his chin on the step.

Not really sure why that seemed like a good idea to him – but…he sure does look comfy!

Stampin’ Up! Field of Flowers Sneak Peek for Every Season

Happy Tuesday, y’all!  I’ve heard from a few folks who have received their catalogs from me – so…if you think you were on my list – be checking your mailboxes!  The USPS moved them pretty fast! 🙂

My card today is one that I made with my Pre-Order goodies which, oh-by-the-way!, YOU could select as part of your Starter Kit if you join right now (instead of waiting until the 3rd of JUNE!!)!  Ask me how!

No.  Really.  Ask me how and join the team!

You know you want to! 😉

Anywho – I pulled out the Field Of Flowers stamp set and combined it with some paper from the Flowers For Every Season DSP and the coordinating Memories & More Card Pack.  Take a look-see:

Easy peasy – and not a fussy-cut in sight! 😉

The layout for this one hails from the As You See It Challenge this week.

I started with a Just Jade card from the new Flowers For Every Season Memories & More Cards & Envelopes pack.

For the card front, I matted a piece of Flowers For Every Season DSP on a piece of Bumble Bee card stock.  Then I cut a coordinating piece with a Stitched Rectangle Die and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I matted a strip of yet another design from the Flowers For Every Season DSP on Bumble Bee and adhered it with Liquid Glue.  Then I wrapped a piece of the open weave ribbon from the new Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack around it – adhering it in the back with a couple of Glue Dots.

I cut down one of the small cards in the Flowers For Every Season Memories & More Card Pack.  Then I stamped the pretty sentiment from Field of Flowers in Shaded Spruce and matted it on Bumble Bee.

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

On the inside, on a Very Vanilla panel, I stamped a second sentiment from Field of Flowers in Shaded Spruce.  In the corner, I added the stems in Shaded Spruce and the sweet wild-flowers image in Crushed Curry.  And…I thought I was done.  But then…I spied with my little eye…the dragonflies in the set!  Love dragonfly images, so…on they went in Tuxedo Black!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Bumble Bee mat and into the Flowers For Every Season Memories & More Card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

The pre-printed envelope from the Flowers For Every Season Memories & More Cards & Envelopes got more of the Field of Flowers flowers on the front…

…and the flap is already decorated on the inside, so…done!

Et Voila!  You guys – I LOVE this Field of Flowers stamp set!  The big focal sentiment “always”, in the gorgeous font, is designed to work in combination with the other words and phrases in the set.  And…the flowers are wonderful!

And there is no denying the beauty of the Flowers for Every Season DSP, is there??

I hope you like!

If you want to recreate this card – all the Stampin’ Up! products you need are listed down below along with the card cuts!
