Stampin’ Up! Over The Moon Sneak Peek 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 it’s a doozy! – 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!

Our color sketch is…no colors!  Well, we’re allowed to use a little bit of an accent color.  So…given the basic non-color-colors of the challenge, I decided it was time to ink up the new and uber-adorbs Over The Moon stamp set – which is coming to you on 4 June!  Take a look-see:

Guess what the non-color-colors were?

I added a touch of yellow!

I borrowed a fun layout from the CAS(E) This Sketch challenge this week – it fit right into the play-on-words that I was going for!

I started with a Whisper White panel and used some stickey notes to mask the top portion off.  Then, in Basic Gray, I stamped the Over the Moon moon several times.  Then I used the fine-tip end of my Light Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blend to lightly color the inside edges of the moon.

I made some doodle-dashes across the card panel with my Journaling Pen.  You can also see I added clusters of dots around the moons!

 

Using my Stamparatus, I added the Over the Moon sentiment in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  Above that is the adorable cow – also in Tuxedo Black – “over the moon”.

See what I did there?  The COW is actually OVER the MOON!

I’m quackin’ myself up here!! 😉

I used my Basic Gray and Basic Black Watercolor Pencils to color the cow.  And my Light Daffodil Delight Blend to color the bell.  Then I matted the panel on So Saffron for the card front.

I tied a teesny-weensy little bow from Whisper White Solid Baker’s Twine and added it with a teensy-weensy dab of Liquid Glue.  A Rhinestone Basic Jewel and some more dot-clusters in the corners finished off the card front!

On the inside, I added Basic Gray moons and doodle dot clusters in the corners of a Whisper White panel.

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more moons and doodle-dots on the front…

…and…a little more fun cow-ness on the back!

Et Voila!  I was SO tickled to be able to get this Over The Moon stamp set with my pre-order (one of those little Demonstrator perks!).  I fell in love with the cows and fun sentiments the second I saw it!  And I know you will, too – so just go ahead and add this one to your shopping list!!  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! A Little Lace Sneak Peek

Hey y’all – welcome to another week.  Isn’t there a holiday coming up soon?

I hope?

My card today is very simple – and showcases a sweet little new set from the 2019-2010 Annual Catalog called A Little Lace.  Take a look-see:

I started by stamping the large image from A Little Lace in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a Whisper White panel – using my Stamparatus.  I also added a few additional images around the large one.

With my Light and Dark Petal Pink and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends, I colored some of the flowers.

I added the sentiment from A Little Lace in Pretty Peacock – and then added another little fleur-de-do in the corner.

I added some doodle-dashes around the panel with my Journaling Pen.  The panel is double matted on Basic Black and Petal Pink.

I added a couple three Gold Faceted Gems – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added another floral image from A Little Lace in the four corners of a Whisper White panel, and colored them with the Light and Dark Daffodil Delight Blends.  Then I “connected” them with doodle-dashes.

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more A Little Lace florals and some doodle-dashes on the front…

…and all I did on the envelope flap was…doodle-dashes! 🙂

Et Voila!  A Little Lace is such fun – and it’s even got a die set bundled with it called the Stitched Lace Dies – which I can’t wait to use!  But – it also works really well all by itself, don’t you think?  I hope you like!

P.S.  Wayne and I had a great time at our going-away lunch for Amy on Saturday!  Ate some great food and spent time with friends!  Making new – good! – friends has been one of the biggest bonuses of being part of this wonderful Stampin’ Up! family!

Finn brought me a Mother’s Day gift yesterday.

I THINK he re-gifted… 😉

And…he sort of asked if he could hold on to it while I wasn’t chewing on it.  For safe keeping and stuff – keep that darned cat from getting it.

Definitely a “gift of love”! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! To A Wild Rose Sneak Peek!

Good morning, y’all!  Well – I’ve started the countdown.

Okay – I’ve sort of been counting down since I got here, but…it’s starting to get real!  I’m beginning to stress over the packing process next week, which means we’re getting closer!  I’m keeping my fingers crossed – and hope you will, too! – that I can actually get out of here next Friday.  I very badly want to be home on the 11th for a going away lunch.  I’m already missing my friend’s graduation tomorrow – and am going to be right annoyed if I ALSO miss the lunch for my other friend.  Yes.  I have two friends who are not the same person! 😉

So – think good thoughts that all goes well today and next week, won’t you?

My card today is a sneak peek of a beautiful bundle coming soon in the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog called To A Wild Rose.  The stamp set will be bundled with the Wild Rose Dies.  For this card, I set the bundle images against some perfectly perfect Perennial Essence DSP (also coming on 4 June!).  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from the challenge at The Paper Players.

I started with some gorgeous paper from the new Perennial Essence DSP and matted it on Balmy Blue for the card front.

I created the vertical element using a die from the Wild Rose Dies, cutting it from another piece of Balmy Blue, then adhering it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I created some leaves by stamping the outlines from To A Wild Rose in Mossy Meadow.  Then I used the fill-in images in Old Olive – on one set I used full-strength Old Olive and on the other I used it stamped-off-once.  Different looks with one ink pad! 🙂

I also die cut a few Old Olive leaves and a Balmy Blue flower while I was at it.

To make the large flower, I used the three-step images in the To A Wild Rose stamp set.  The first image is Blackberry Bliss (that’s the outline), then I used Balmy Blue and Blueberry Bushel for the two fill-in images.  Then I cut it with the matching Wild Rose die.

The sentiment is two-step as well.  The large word is in Blakcberry Bliss and the smaller is Balmy Blue.  Since this is a photopolymer set, it was easy to line up the two images to create the sentiment I was after.  Then I cut it out with the uber-cool stitched die in the Wild Rose Die set! 🙂

I built the collage using Liquid Glue for the leaves and sentiment, and then added some Dimensionals to the back of the large flower.  I used them to wind some loops of Gold Metallic Thread and then adhered the whole thing to the card front.

I adhered the die cut Balmy Blue flower and added a new Perennial Essence Floral Center.  Near the bottom is a Crushed Curry felt flower from the Follow Your Art Embellishment Kit (also coming on 4 June), with a Gold Faceted Gem in the center.  And that was it for the card front!

On the inside, I added a second sentiment from To A Wild Rose in Balmy Blue to a Whisper White panel, then added a bevy of flowers in Blackberry Bliss.

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

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

Et Voila!  I know I keep saying “WOW” with each new sneak peek, but…WOW!  Not sorry!

This To a Wild Rose stamp set and bundled Wild Rose Dies is simply gorgeous!  The sentiments are wonderful and the flowers and leaves perfect!  I hope you like and are excited to get this one added to your tool chest come 4 June!

Stampin’ Up! Perennial Floral Essence Sneak Peek 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!

For mine today, I pulled out some of the prettiest DSP that you’re ever going to see – the Perennial Essence DSP in the new 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.  It’s going to be available on 4 Jun – along with the rest of the Perennial Essence Suite.  Take a look-see:

Yep – that’s the paper doing all the work, folks!

Here’s the sketch we were all working with.

I started with some of that pretty paper and matted it on Crushed Curry for the card front.

Then, using two different designs from the paper pack, I cut two banner strips.  I bannerized the ends by sticking the strip in the back of the Tailored Tag Punch (yes, I left my Banner Triple Punch at home.  Do not ask me why!).

I adhered both banners to the card front with Liquid Glue.

For the flowers, I stamped the image from the Floral Essence stamp set 4 times in Crushed Curry on some…So Saffron Vellum Card Stock!!  Whoo-hooo!!  COLORED Vellum.  You can get it and Old Olive and Petal Pink all in a 12″ x 12″ combo pack when the new catalog comes out in June!

Once the flowers were good and dry, I punched them all out with the Perennial Flower Punch (bundled with the Floral Essence stamp set in the new catalog) and created flowers by stacking two together with a Stampin’ Dimensional.

I added a fuzzy Perennial Essence Flower Center to each flower and set them aside for a minute.

On a piece of Petal Pink paper from the Perennial Essence DSP, I stamped the Floral Essence sentiment in Blackberry Bliss ink using my Stamparatus.  Over the sentiment, I added the Floral Essence flower image in Petal Pink.  Then I cut it all out with a Stitched Shapes Framelits circle die.  I adhered the circle to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stuck a Perennial Essence Flower Center onto the sentiment circle, popped the two Vellum flowers on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped the Floral Essence flower a few times in Petal Pink in the corner of more of the Perennial Essence DSP.  I gave each flower a center with the little image from Floral Essence in stamped-off-twice Crushed Curry.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Crushed Curry mat and into my Blackberry Bliss card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Floral Essence flowers and centers (in full strength Crushed Curry) on the front…

…and I used a little more of the Perennial Essence DSP on the envelope flap!

Et Voila!  Oh my goodness, you guys!!  THIS.  PAPER.  IS.  SPECTACULAR!  Each piece brings more stunning gorgeousness – like Monet painting after Monet painting!  Wow!  It works so perfectly with the coordinating Floral Essence stamp set and bundled Perennial Flower Punch, too.  You’re truly going to love this one!  I hope you like!

Stampin’ UP! Wonderful Romance in Lemon Lime Twist

Good Friday!

Literally! 🙂

Hope you have a good Easter weekend planned – I’m headed over to our friends’ place in DE on Sunday.  We’ll go to church and then I’ll spend the day with them before returning “home” in the afternoon.  It’s been a minute since I’ve seen them, so I’m looking forward to it! 🙂

My card today is a bit of a tribute to two things leaving us at the end of May – the Wonderful Romance stamp set and…LEMON LIME TWIST!!  How many of you LOVE LLT like I do!?!  I was happy we got Granny Apple Green, which I also love, but…I’ll miss the bright pops of Lemon Lime Twist.  This is a monochromatic card featuring this fave LOUD and CLEAR.  Take a look-see:

Hang with me, folks – there’s a method to my madness!  This color scheme is thanks to this week’s Global Design Project challenge.

I assume you know what my color of choice is…?

And the layout is from this FabFriday challenge.

I started with some Gingham Gala DSP (this is going away TOO!! – so getcha some now if you want a stash of it!) in Lemon Lime Twist and matted it on Lemon Lime Twist for the card front.

To create the frame, I used two Rectangle Stitched Framelits – the large one and one that is TWO sizes down from it – and ran them thru the Big Shot on a piece of Lemon Lime Twist card stock.

On a piece of Whisper White, I stamped the large floral image from Wonderful Romance in Lemon Lime Twist ink.  Then I used my Clear Wink of Stella as a paintbrush to color the leaves with…say it with me…Lemon Lime Twist.  This is a great way to add color and shine all at once – and you can add shading simply by adding more or less ink!

I cheated the monochromatic theme ever so slightly – and lightly touched the middle of the larger flowers and the tiny flowers in Powder Pink with the Clear Wink of Stella brush.

I adhered the art behind the LLT frame with Liquid Glue and popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The sentiment, from Wonderful Romance, is stamped in LLT on Whisper White, cut with a Stitched Shapes Framelits circle die, and matted on a LLT Starburst Punch mat.  Then I adhered it with Liquid Glue.

A few Pearl Basic Jewels and simple bow tied with a double length of Whisper White Solid Baker’s Twine finished off the card front.

On the inside, I stamped the leaf image from Wonderful Romance twice in LLT and colored them with my Clear Wink of Stella.  Then I added a few Pearl Basic Jewels.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Lemon Lime Twist mat and into my Thick Whisper White card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals, and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Wonderful Romance leaves on the front…

…and I put a little more Gingham Gala DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Not gonna fib ya – I kind of love this card!  The Wonderful Romance floral looks clean and bright in – mostly! – Lemon Lime Twist, don’t you think?  And Gingham Gala will forever be a favorite of mine!  There’s a lot on this card that’s leaving us soon – so…I hope you like AND that you’re snapping these up!  Get your inks, refills and Card Stocks in the 2017-2019 In Colors right away – they’re only available while supplies last – and they won’t last long!

Please note, some of the bundle items may be carrying over into the new 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.  However, the bundle pricing will go away, so get them while you can at the discounted price!

Carryover Clear-Mount and Wood-Mount Stamps

There are stamp sets that are currently offered in clear-mount or wood-mount (in the 2018–2019 Annual Catalog), that ARE carrying over – but are being transitioned to Cling Mount.

These transition sets that will be in the 2019–2020 annual catalog –  will continue to be offered in clear-mount and/or wood-mount until existing inventory has been depleted or until June 4, 2019 (whichever comes first).  If the inventory is depleted, you will be notified of the automatic switch to cling when placing an order for that stamp set. This means that you may end up purchasing select cling stamp sets (in carryover artwork) before they can be ordered from the catalog!  All carryover rubber stamp sets will be available in cling medium only (with the exception of background stamps in North America) beginning June 4, 2019.

Click here to see the list of stamp sets that ARE carrying over as Cling sets. 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Dear Doily Video Sneak Peek

Good morning, y’all!  It’s the weekend!  And it is – apparently! – a weekend of change!

So – I was SUPPOSED to be at work today but…found out yesterday that it’s going to be too windy to do our event today.  I sure didn’t think wind was going to be a thing for this test, but…whatever!  We’ve moved the whole day to tomorrow.  Which has it’s own issues – not least of which is that I’ll not be able to do our Sunday night video.

Well – not on SUNDAY, at least!  I really don’t want to miss my time with you guys, so we’re going to try to get together tonight!  Or – more accurately, I’ll be live on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page at 7pm Eastern (please note it’s a DAY early AND an HOUR early!!) – and hoping that you can all join me!

We’ll be making a fun little card using the Dear Doily stamp set.  Take a sneaky peek!

Happy Hawwmp Day, y’all!  The week is progressing – too fast for once – to the weekend.  Before I know it I’ll be headed to the airport to pick up the rental car and bringing it home to pack!  The only real question is whether my list of gotta-get-dones will be got-done by then! 😉

A little admin-y stuff first…I’ve got new info below about some die sets that are in danger of going “not orderable” due to the high demand we’ve experienced.  Take a look and if something you were wanting is on the list…hop to it!  I don’t think they’ll last long…

Okay – My card today is a super easy fun-fold that I made for a friend.  I used some Share What You Love Specialty DSP and the wonderful Let It Ride and Well Said stamp sets.  Take a look-see:
