Stampin’ Up! Floral Romance Sneak Peek Thinking of You

Happy Friday, y’all!  The week’s are just flying by!  Hope you’re readier for Christmas than I am! 😳😳😳

I’ve got another sneak peek for you guys – this is one that caused quite a fuss when it was revealed at OnStage and it’ll all be available on 3 Jan with the Occasions Catalog!  It’s called the Floral Romance Suite and it. IS.  GORGEOUS!  I used the Wonderful Romance stamp set (one of the new Cling stamps!) and the bundled Wonderful Floral Framelits.  Then, borrowing some ideas from the samples in the catalog,  I added some vellum Floral Romance Specialty DSP.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Just Because I Was Thinking of You!

Mornin’, y’all!  Hope your week is going well!

I’ve got a pretty little note card for you today, that uses a new Host-Exclusive stamp set from the 2019 Occasions catalog, called Just Because.  And you’ll be able to purchase it with Stampin’ Rewards starting on 3 Jan!  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from this week’s FabFriday sketch challenge.

I started with some Festive Farmhouse DSP and embossed it in the Pinewood Planks Dynamic TIEF, then matted it on a piece of Mossy Meadow card stock for the card front.

I used the Leaf Punch to make some Vellum and Copper Foil Leaves, which I adhered to the card front with Liquid Glue.

On a piece of Very Vanilla card stock, I stamped the pretty image/sentiment (all one stamp!) from the Just Because Host-exclusive set (coming on 3 Jan 19) in Early Espresso Ink.

I colored the image with my Old Olive and Cajun Craze Watercolor Pencils.

I adhered the panel to a Mossy Meadow mat with Liquid Glue and popped it over the leaves with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

For the heart, I colored a new Heart Epoxy Droplet (in the Occasions catalog – available 3 Jan) with my Dark Cajun Craze Stampin’ Blend.  The bow is a simple little number made of Linen Thread – which I adhered with a dab of Liquid Glue and the card front was done!

On the inside, I inked just the flower pot portion of the Just Because stamp in Crumb Cake ink, stamped it off THREE times and then stamped it in the middle of a Very Vanilla panel.

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

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got another Just Because flower pot on the front – stamped in Early Espresso and colored with the Watercolor Pencils…

…and I added a little more Festive Farmhouse DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This Just Because Host stamp set is really wonderful, y’all!  Hope you like!

Once it comes available in January, you’ll be able to pick this Host set using Stampin’ Rewards – which you’ll earn when you host a workshop that reaches $150 or if you place an individual order of $150 or more!  If you’ve just added this set to your wish list, let me know.  I’ve got Online Host Clubs getting ready to start in January that will let you get this one for yourself – I’ll be happy to get you on the list!  Get all the information and the list of bennies right here!

Finn is a wonderful conversationalist.

Seriously.  He understands everything I’m asking of him and responds appropriately.

For example:  “Finn!  What’s that noise?”

As opposed to: “Finn – where’s your dad?”

“Want a cookie!??”

“Need to go outside?”

See what I mean?  Total intra-species communication!

Stampin’ Up! Happiness Surrounds Needlepoint Nook

Good morning, y’all!  Here we are – on Friday again!  On the edge of another weekend.  And…on the brink of….Christmas!  25 days.

Twenty.

Five.

Days.

That’s not a lot of days, y’all!!

Oh – and another thing we’re on the brink of today.  Today is the last day before the forever-disappearance of the wonderful Snowflake Showcase!  We already witnessed the demise of the White Velvet Paper.  Now – the rest of this suite is almost gone. 🙁

I thought I’d give you one last look at this suite – focusing on the non-Christmas stamp set – Happiness Surrounds.  And I added it to a little new Needlepoint Nook and Gingham Gala DSPs (which you’ll be able to get on 3 Jan 19). Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! 2019 Occasions Catalog Sneak Peek Gingham Butterfly Gala

Good morning!!  Hard to believe it’s already….HAAAWWWWMPPP DAY!!  Whoo-hoo!  And – one week from tomorrow it’s time for your stretchy pants, huh?  Y’all doing turkey?  Ham?  Turkey AND Ham?!?

We’re in the turkey and ham camp.  We’re going to smoke a turkey this year and let Honeybaked do their thing for the ham.  And then we’re going to try to keep the rest of the over-abundance to a minimum.

I don’t hold out much hope! 😉

So – yesterday was a pretty dreary, cold and rainy day here in GA – and I think that drove my decision to use a new stamp set from the 2019 Occasions Catalog!

Also – I had this…

Stampin’ Up! Happiness Surrounds Your Day!

Happy weekend, y’all!  Hope you’ve got something fun planned.

I have a plane flight planned.  Which – is NOT fun.  Not in any way that you slice it.  Tomorrow’ll be a 12 hour day to get back to Atlanta.  Bleh bleh bleh.  But we’ve had a great visit and gotten done all the things we needed to do while I was here.  So – bonus!

But – expectation management:  I will NOT be doing a Facebook live tomorrow – so sorry!  I don’t even land in Atlanta until a little after 5, so…just can’t do it, y’all!  I’ll be back next weekend, I promise!!

Let’s not think about that unpleasantness right now, though, shall we?  Instead, let’s take a look at a card that comes from the second stamp set in the upcoming Snowflake Showcase (available 1 Nov – 30 Nov 18).  This is the Happiness Surrounds stamp set and…it gives a completely different look from the Snow Is Glistening set I used yesterday.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Happiness Surrounds Sneak Peek!

Mornin’, my peeps – hope you’re having a great week!  It’s gorgeous – again!  – here in Colorado – although…it was like…13F when I got up this morning.  Which is approximately 50F too cold for this girl! 😉

My card today is from the soon-to-be-available Happiness Surrounds stamp set.  This is a set in the Snowflake Showcase suite coming in November.  It’s only going to be available for a limited time – so be ready to snag it up on 1 Nov.  I paired it with some more pumpkin-y goodness from the Toil & Trouble DSP.  Take a look-see:
