Stampin’ Up! Stitched All Around on Wood

Hey guys!  Happy Saturday!  Hope you’ve got something fun planned!  We watched the Black Panther movie on DVD last night, so we’re all caught up – which means…I’m going to go see the Marvels movie today.  Before it’s totally out of the theaters! 🙂  And I think the Man will go to Doggie Camp for the first time since “the incident”!

So – let’s do this, shall we?  I used the pretty Stitched All Around Bundle (which coordinates with the Stitched Labels Framelits) for my card.  And then I added some Wood Textures and Share What You Love DSPs.  Take a look-see:

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

And the idea for the Wood Textures DSP comes from the TGIF Inspiration Challenge.

I started by adhering some Wood Textures DSP to a Grapefruit Grove mat with Liquid Glue.  Then I did the same with a flowery piece of Share What You Love DSP and adhered it to the card front.

Next up, I used my Stamparatus and a little hinge-step technique to stamp the flower border image from the Stitched All Around set in Petal Pink several times on a light-colored piece of the Wood Textures DSP.  That one is matted on Grapefruit Grove, too, then added to the card front.

For the sentiment – I cut the pretty Wood Textures label with the Stitched Labels Framelits die.  Then I heat embossed the sentiment from Stitched All Around in White Stampin’ Emboss Powder.

I cut a second Stitched Labels Framelits label from Grapefruit Grove card stock and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.  Then I popped the sentiment over top – slightly offset – with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a single Mint Macaron Share What You Love Artisan Pearl to the sentiment label and the card front was done!

On the inside, I used my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig (get yours before they’re gone!) to add two Stitched All Around sentiments – one in Petal Pink and one in Mint Macaron – to the middle of a Whisper White panel.  Across the bottom, I added a couple of Petal Pink flower borders.  Then I cut two Grapefruit Grove hearts with the Stitched Labels Framelits and added them with Liquid Glue.


I matted the panel on Grapefruit Grove 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 Petal Pink flower borders and a couple of Grapefruit Grove die cut hearts on the front…

…and then I added a little more Wood Textures DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I really love the die cuts from the Stitched Labels Framelits – and they work so perfectly with the sentiments and images in Stitched All Around!  How handy that you’ll be able to get the whole thing and save a cool 10%, huh?  And I feel pretty sure no one can dispute how beautifully the Share What You Love Specialty DSP pairs with the rustic Wood Textures!  Hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix

Today we (well – maybe me more than Wayne) – began the quest to make Wilbur a true part of the family.

I’m going to try to some Natural Horsemanship….errr….pigmanship…on him.

The first step involves food (a slight departure from the horse version I learned).

A couple days ago I started putting a little handful of the girl’s not-so-sweet feed out on the ground for him.

Today – I added a feed tub.

And in the evening – I stood within about 12 feet of said tub.

 

Closer up – it’s pretty obvious he’s not at all big.  Like…shorter than Finn.

I think he might even be a gen-u-wine pot-belly pig.

Later, I was back in the wash rack – and…

He just came back and had him a little lay-down in the cool grass in the shade!

I’ll keep moving closer while he eats.  Get him desensitized to me.

Next up?  Pat the pig!

Or…not.  We’ll see! 🙂

P.S.  Thanks to all of you who left such sweet comments for the vet on FB!  Meant a lot to me and the Man! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Lovely Wishes on Brusho Textures

Happy Happy Friday!  It’s a Springy day here in GA – warmer again, with some rain coming but a good weekend ahead!  Finn-y and I may hit the Puppy Tubs tomorrow cuz…we’re headed up to Amy’s for a team meeting on Sunday!  He is so looking forward to eating lunch with the ladies and making a few projects! And he really likes to be looking his best for his fans! 🙂

My card today was inspired by one I saw on Pinterest, made by Anne Matasci – you can check out her beautiful card right here!

I went a very different color direction than Anne did, choosing greens and neutrals for a very organic look.  And I used the Lovely Wishes stamp set for my floral images.  Take a look-see:

And the reason I aimed for this color scheme is the The Card Concept challenge this week.

I started with a piece of Canson 90lb Cold-Pressed Watercolor paper to make my “tiles”.  With my Aqua Painter, I wet the paper pretty liberally.  Then I sprinkled it with the Moss Green powder in the Brusho set.  Using the Aqua Painter, I squished the color around to spread it and soften it.  Finally, I sprinkled some more of the Brusho on and left those “bursts” alone.  I carefully soaked up some extra water with the edge of a paper towel and let the panel dry naturally.

When the paper was dry, I cut it into 9 – 1 1/8″ x 1 3/8″ tiles.  Then I pulled out my Soft Suede ink pad and Timeless Textures stamp set.  I used the flourish image full strength on three tiles, then I stamped three more with the dots image and three more in the grid image in stamped-off-once ink.

I stamped various images from the Lovely Wishes stamp set on the tiles in Always Artichoke ink and filled in the leaves with my Old Olive Stampin’ Write Marker.  Then I built the card front with an Old Olive panel and adhered the tiles with Liquid Glue.  There’s a gap in the tiles under the ribbon and sentiment banner.

I Fast Fuse’d the card front to a Very Vanilla mat, then wrapped a length of 5/8″ Burlap Ribbon around it all – covering the gap in the tiles – and securing it in the back with Fast Fuse.  I looped four strands of the burlap ribbon that I’d pulled out of another length and secured them to the card front – under the ribbon – with a couple of Glue Dots.

For the sentiment, I stamped the sentiment from Lovely Wishes in Soft Suede on a strip of Very Vanilla, edged it with my Old Olive Marker, and adhered it to the ribbon with Liquid Glue.

The embellishment is a Linen Thread double-loop Billie Moan bow (sorry – it had to be done!), a tiny bow from Very Vanilla Solid Baker’s Twine, a True Gentleman Button, and two Touches of Nature Elements leaves.  And that was it for the card front.

On the inside, I simply stamped some more of the Lovely Wishes leaves and flowers in Always Artichoke on a Very Vanilla panel.

I Fast Fuse’d the panel to an Old Olive and Very Vanilla mat and into my Soft Suede card base, Fast Fuse’d the front on as well, and the card was done.

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got more Lovely Wishes in Always Artichoke on the front…

…and on the back, straddling the edge of the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I’m still not very comfortable with the Brusho, but…I loved this technique with the small Lovely Wishes floral images and bits of Timeless Textures.  It turned out very organic and collage-y and…I hope you like it as much as I do!

Finn Fan Fix

Very early on, when Finn-y was just a young ‘un, I taught him a cardinal rule.

Never.  And I mean never ever ever – go in a horse stall.

Empty or otherwise.

Two reasons.

First?  Poop.  Horse poop.  Lots of it.  Which, in dog-land, is an all-you-can-eat buffet at the Golden Corral.

Ick.

That’s me, not him.

Second?  And even more importantly?  Horse.  Big ole horse who might be eating and might not take too kindly to a goofy dog lurking about in his bedroom.

So – that’s the rule.

Finn follows it pretty religiously.

Except…

No, Mom.  I was not in the stall vacuuming up Bo’s dropped feed.

I don’t know where this horse stall bedding all over my nose came from.

It depends on your definition of…”in“!

Now.  About that bite of carrot…

Stampin’ Up! Floral Statements on Sheet Music for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop



Happy Thursday, y’all – and welcome to another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!! It’s sketch week and we’ve got the full complement of hoppers today!  Do be sure to check out all their projects when you’re done here, won’t you?  

A friend and team-member sent me a lovely card the other day – on which she’d used the Floral Statements stamp set and a Sheet Music stamp.  And that gave me the idea for this card today.  Take a look-see:

Our sketch for today…

And I got my color scheme from the Global Design Project color challenge.

I started with a Soft Suede card base and embossed the front in the new Basket Weave Dynamic TIEF (which is still available as a free SAB goodie, bundled with the Blossoming Basket stamp set, with a $100 purchase).  Using an almost-dry Sponge Dauber with Soft Suede ink, I rubbed it on the three sides of the card front and quickly sprinkled it with Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heated it up.  

For the art, I stamped the Sheet Music image in Soft Suede on a Very Vanilla panel.  Then, using my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig, I stamped the Floral Statements image in Versamark and heat embossed it in Copper.  While I was at it, I did the same again on a Vellum card stock sheet.

I stamped the Burlap image in Soft Suede on a Pear Pizzazz panel, tore the edges and then rubbed them with my Soft Suede Sponge Dauber – then I adhered it on an angle with Liquid Glue.  I tore and sponged the art panel in the same way.

With some Liquid Glue, I adhered a length of 5/8″ Burlap Ribbon over the Pear Pizzazz panel.  

I colored the flowers with my Calypso Coral and Pear Pizzazz Stampin’ Write Markers and then popped the art panel onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  With a Stitched Shapes Framelits circle die, I cut a circle from the Vellum panel.  Then I used Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals – just under the embossed portions – to pop the circle onto the art panel.

I made a Linen Thread Double-Loop Billie Moan Bow and adhered it with a Glue Dot.  Finally, I nestled a Pear Pizzazz heart Enamel Shape under the bow and the card front was done!

On the inside, I took a Very Vanilla panel and embossed across the bottom with the Basket Weave Dynamic TIEF.  Then I lightly sponged it with Soft Suede.  I matted the panel on Pear Pizzazz, then wrapped some Linen Thread twice around the panel and tied a little bow.

I added a Pear Pizzaz heart, Fast Fuse’d the panel into the card base and the card was done.

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got a few enamel hearts on the front…

…and then I embossed the envelope flap in the Basket Weave Dynamic TIEF.

Et Voila! Thank you, Carole, for the great idea!  I think the two images in the Floral Statements set are so pretty and, of course, Sheet Music.  Hello?  It’s.  Sheet.  Music!  Hope you like!

Well.  Here we are again.  On Friday.  I don’t know whether to give a big “whoo-hoo” or…worry that I’ll wake up and be 90 tomorrow!  I mean…time is sorta flying by!

Heck – next thing we know…Sale-A-Bration will be over.  Bummer….  The Occasions Catalog will be caput.  Bummer again.

But – the new 2018-2019 Annual Catalog will be making an appearance!

And I’ll be getting on a cruise ship to Alaska!

Stampin’ Up! Hello Friend!

Well, look-ee look-ee!  Guess what day it is again!?  Yep – it’s HAWWWWMP Day, y’all!  It’s downhill from here to the weekend.

My card today is another departure from my norm.  In that it uses brighter colors and more…abstractedness…than usual.  I pulled out the pretty Hello Friend stamp set (the coordinating stamp set for the Hello Friend Heat Embossing Project Kit!) and tried a new coloring technique.  Take a look-see:

There’s a reason for the colors – I was playing along with the TGIF Color Challenge this week! Continue reading
