Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Thistle By the Bay Card

Good morning and happy happy Hawwmp Day!  Hope the week is going well for you – and if you’re on either coast – hoping that your weather looks better today than it has so far this week!  Yikes!

My card today goes back to the pretty…err…BEAUTIFUL!…Beautiful Thistle stamp set and dies!  I’ve used it before – but this time I went with more traditional thistle colors!  I paired it with a little bit of By The Bay 6″ x 6″ DSP.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Lucky as a Four Leaf Clover Card

Well.  Another thrilling day on the phone with Apple.  And Microsoft.  And what do I have to show for it?

Not a heckuva a lot.  Still not doing like it should.

And – it’s sorta making me nutso!!

But – I did a little cobbling and a bunch of whickering and…pulled it together enough to bring you a card.

I hope!

This one uses the fun Lucky Clover stamp set and some Rain or Shine Specialty DSP.  Take a look-see!

Stampin’ Up! Silly Goose Dandy Designs Two-Fold Panel Card with Video Tutorial

‘Sup, y’all!?  Having a good weekend?  As I predicted, ours has been all about the rat-killing.  Is that a term you know?  It sort of means…getting all the things done that are just a smidge annoying but…have to get done anyway!  Even Finn did some.

Not really.  Dogs (certainly the ones whose last names are “Deatherage”!) have a pretty rat-free life!  He napped.  He sniffed.  He licked bowls.  Pretty much your average Finn day! 🙂

As a polar opposite to the rat killing – I have a super cute and FUN card for you today!  It features the new Silly Goose stamp set – some wunnermus Dandy Designs DSP – and a cool fun fold!  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Sentimental Petal Park Sneak Peek Celebration Card with Video Tutorial

Good Sunday morning!  I’m not even going to remind you that we’re at C-7 (that’s Christmas minus 7 days, in case you were wondering!).  If you don’t have all your shopping done…I wish you luck, my friend!  Or…I wish you a handy Gift Certificate!! 😉  I can help with that!  Get Gift Certificates for Stampin’ Up! product right here! Or…scroll down and print off a Paper Pumpkin Gift Certificate – and give someone you love the gift of creative fun with a subscription to Paper Pumpkin!  See?  I’ve got your six!! 😉

Today’s card takes us back to the new Sentimental Park bundle and Regency Park DSP.  I didn’t plan on using this bundle quite so quickly – since I’d just recently posted this card – but…I just couldn’t help it – we “discovered” a “thing” last Thursday on my Zoom the Craftroom and I just needed to share it with you!  For this card, I added some pretty posies from the Petal Park bundle!  Take a look-see:
