Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Beauty Abounds 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 a sketch challenge and I know you’ll see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop.

I pulled out a wonderful new bundle in the 2019 Occasions Catalog, called Beauty Abounds – and boy does it!!  I paired it with some Gingham Gala 6″ x 6″ DSP to make a bright and cheerful card!  Take a look-see:

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 Positive Thoughts

Good morning, y’all!  Hope your work week – or retired week! – is going well.  Fall has arrived in GA – and I am ever so grateful!

One of the coolest things about the Snowflake Showcase is the wide-ranging versatility of the products.  Fall – Winter – Christmas.  Encouragement.  Congratulations.  You’ll find all of it inside!  You’ve still got time to get in on my special bundle and gather up all the Snowflake Showcase products for yourself.  But time is running short – I’ll be shutting off the special soon!

I made another card today with one of the stamp sets in the suite – the Happiness Surrounds set – and the matching Snowfall Thinlits. And I added it to a little Country Lane DSP.  Take a look-see:

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:

Stampin’ Up! Just a Note to Wish You Well

Good morning, y’all!  Hope your weekend is going swimmingly!

WE will not be swimming – cuz of how it’s colder than a well-digger’s lunch bucket here (that’s REALLY cold in case you’re unfamiliar with the analogy!).

So – I’ve come to the sad realization that I just don’t have enough internet speed/bandwidth here to do a FB Live – so…we’re going to have to skip that for today.  I’ll try to be back next week, though!

I made a simple little card using the Wishing You Well stamp set and some pumpkins from the Toil & Trouble DSP.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Festive Spirited Snowmen

Happy Happy Hawwwmp Day, y’all!  We’re sitting watching the impending arrival of Florence on the east coast.  Seems that every time they show the potential track – they move it.

Which means that only Flo knows where Flo is going to go.

About the only thing all the models and weather peeps can agree on is that it’s going to be very bad.

If you’re in her sights – I hope you made tracks and are somewhere safe!

My card for today is just a fun little number that uses the new Spirited Snowmen stamp set and some Festive Farmhouse DSP.  Take a look-see:

The layout was inspired by this week’s Hand Stamped Sentiments sketch challenge.

 

I started with a piece of the pretty Festive Farmhouse DSP and matted it on Cherry Cobbler for the card front.  Then I used a few Glue Dots to adhere a length of 5/8″ Striped Burlap Trim.

I matted another piece of Festive Farmhouse on Cherry Cobbler and popped it over the burlap trim with some Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sweet little Spirited Snowmen image in Crumb Cake on some Very Vanilla card stock and colored it with my Light Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blend, as well as my Light and Dark Old Olive, Cherry Cobbler and Smoky Slate Blends.  I also used the Color Lifter to add some highlighting.

Then I cut the image out with my largest circle Stitched Shapes Framelit die and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I cut a Blizzard Thinlits die from Very Vanilla card stock and used Liquid Glue to adhered them on the top of the circle.

For the Spirited Snowmen sentiment, I stamped it in Cherry Cobbler on a strip of Very Vanilla – then I punched the end with my Everyday Label punch.  I stuck the strip in thru the BACK of the punch to create the cute little end!  I used my Old Olive Stampin’ Write Marker to add some faux stitches and adhered it to the card front with Glue.

To the end of the sentiment, I added another Blizzard Thinlit snowflake, a Linen Thread double-loop Billie-bow and a double-length bow of Cherry Cobbler Festive Farmhouse Cotton Twine.  I colored a few Pearl Basic Jewels with the Dark Cherry Cobbler Blend and adhered them to the snowflakes – and the card was done!

On the inside, I stamped some Spirited Snowmen snowflakes and holly in Crumb Cake on a Very Vanilla panel.  I colored the holly with my Old Olive and Cherry Cobbler Blends.  Then I “stitched” around the holly with the Old Olive Stampin’ Write Marker.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat and into my Thick Very Vanilla Medium Envelope, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got more Spirited Snowmen snowflakes and holly on the front…

…and the envelope flap got some more of the Festive Farmhouse DSP.

Et Voila!  Not Christmas, per se – but certainly a lovely card for the approaching festive season.  I love these little Spirited Snowmen – and putting them atop Festive Farmhouse DSP just seemed like the right thing to do!  Hope you like!

We’ve had a bit of a problem with respect this week.

Or – lack thereof.

I think the picture will speak for itself.

Are you kidding me, squirrel?!?  I.  AM.  DOG!

Stampin’ Up! Country Home on a Country Lane for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Happy Thursday, y’all – and welcome to another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!! Today’s a color challenge (and it’s very Fall-y!).  With the arrival yesterday of the 2018 Holiday Catalog, I can’t wait for you to see everyone’s projects today!

When I saw our colors for this week, I right away pulled out the new Country Home stamp set and paired it up with the coordinating Country Lane DSP.  Take a look-see:

Uhm…can you guess the colors? 😉

And – since I’ll always take a little extra help…I also pulled some inspiration from this week’s CAS(E) This Sketch challenge.

I started with some wood-grain paper from the Country Lane DSP and embossed it in the new Subtle Dynamic TIEF.  Then I cut a second strip of cotton-y paper in Crushed Curry.  I matted both pieces on Mint Macaron using Liquid Glue, then used more Liquid Glue to adhere the matted strip to the card front.

I wrapped some new 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim around the diagonal strip, securing it in the back with a couple of Glue Dots.

For the art work, I used Early Espresso to stamp the floral arrangement and the milk can from the Coutnry Home set on a piece of Whisper White.  I colored the floral art with my Mint Macaron, Crushed Curry and (yes, I cheated a smidge!) my Cajun Craze Stampin’ Write Marker.

For the milk can, I used a Blender Pen and my Early Espresso Watercolor Pencil – I scribbled some of the Watercolor Pencil on a piece of scrap paper and then used the Blender Pen to pick up the color.

Once I had all the shading that I wanted, I added the sentiment in Early Espresso.  Finally, I used a little tiny paint brush to add some Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint to the can.

I matted the panel on Mint Macaron and popped it over the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Once it was on the card front, it looked a little plain to me, so I added some faux stitches with my Early Espresso Stampin’ Write Marker.

I adhered a Galvanized Button next to the panel with a Glue Dot, then added a double-length bow of 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim with another Glue Dot and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a second sentiment from Country Home in Early Espresso to a Whisper White panel.  Across the bottom, I stamped the floral image a few times in Early Espresso and colored them like I’d done on the front.  The faux stitches finished it off!

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Country Home florals and faux stitches across the front…

…and then I added a little more cotton-y Country Lane DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  How sweet is this Coutnry Home stamp set and the gorgeous Country Lane DSP?!  It’s flat-out perfect for all sorts of wonderful, Fall-y, projects!  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Festive Pop of Petals and Many Blessings

Mornin’, my peeps!  How goes your week? It’s sort of like Monday, right?  I hope you do NOT have a Monday-Tuesday! 🙂

Guess what tomorrow is?!?

Well – yea, it’s Wednesday (aka Hawwmp Day).  But…more importantly – it’s 2018 Holiday Catalog LAUNCH DAY!!

Whoo-hoo!  I know you can hardly wait – and I’m excited for you – I can’t wait to see what you’ve all put on your wish lists that you can finally – FINALLY!! – get on the way! 🙂

For today, though – I’ve got a little bit of new and a little bit of old for you!  I pulled out the Many Blessings stamp set (this one really OUGHT to be on your wish list!) and some Festive Farmhouse DSP (see previous parenthetical!) and put them with some Pop of Petals and….well.  Take a look-see:

I played along with the Fusion challenge this week – hitting both the sketch and the photo inspiration!

I started with a piece of Wood Textures DSP and used a little Liquid Glue to adhere a strip of wonderful plaid paper from the Festive Farmhouse DSP.  Then I adhered the panel to a Mossy Meadow mat for the card front.  I used some Glue Dots to wrap a length of new 5/8″ Striped Burlap Trim around the seam of the two DSPs.

On a piece of Whisper White card stock, I stamped the wreath from the Many Blessings set in Mossy Meadow.  I curled the image around to make it more wreath-like than garland-like!  Then I lightly colored the leaves with my Old Olive Stampin’ Write Marker.  I added some Crushed Curry and Cherry Cobbler berries with the image in the stamp set.

Then I fussy cut the wreath and used Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals (yes, quite a few! 😉 ) to adhere the wreath to the card front.

I pulled one of the flower images from the Pop of Petals stamp set (Annual Catalog) and stamped three in Daffodil Delight on Whisper White and three on Very Vanilla in Crushed Curry.  Then I punched them all with the matching bundled Four-Petal Flower Punch.

I created three flowers by adhering two flowers together with Liquid Glue.  I did two flowers with the white on top and one with the Crushed Curry on top.

Do y’all recognize that kitty?

Yep – it’s the cut-out from last night’s card! 🙂

I ran that thru the Big Shot in the Subtle Dynamic TIEF and then very lightly sponged the edges with Crumb Cake.

Then I stamped it with the Many Blessings sentiment in Cherry Cobbler.

I used some Glue Dots to wind a few loops of Linen Thread around the inside of the wreath and then I started to build the collage!

I used Liquid Glue and Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals as needed to build all the elements.  I also stuck in a few Copper Leaf Elements with Glue Dots.  Then I tied a Linen Thread Billie Bow and adhered it with a Glue Dot.  Over that is a double-length bow of Very Vanilla Solid Baker’s Twine.

I used my Dark Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blend to color three Pearl Basic Jewels and added them to the card front to finish it off.

On the inside, I stamped a second Many Blessings sentiment in Cherry Cobbler to a Very Vanilla panel (I only inked and used half the sentiment).  Then I added a few Crushed Curry flowers (which I also colored a bit with my Crushed Curry Stampin’ Write Marker) and a Mossy Meadow corner.

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!

The front of my Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got another corner and flower…

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

Et Voila!  Sometimes being a hoarder-of-scraps pays off, huh?  I love this little Cat Punch guy nestled in the Pop of Petals flowers, don’t you?  And – Many Blessings is destined to be a favorite – for Fall AND for Christmas projects!  I hope you like!

Tic-Toc….not much longer to wait now!

TTFN

Finn Fan Fix

My Finny likes to play ball.

His desire to chase the ball, however, is inversely proportional to the heat.

And his need to play keep away.

On a hot day – like it’s been this week, he’ll race after the ball several times – but the return is…

Sketchy…

“If I bring it back, she’s going to throw it again.”

“I could run up the hill and let her try to get the ball away from me…”

“Or….I could trot to the door and go into the house and get a drink and lay down in front of that cold air that comes from…wherever cold air comes from…”

“You get it, Mom.  I’m done with you.”

“Is that a squirrel?!?”
