Stampin’ Up! Gather Together Harvest Hellos 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!

I figured to give you another 2019 Holiday Catalog sneak peek – using the wonderful Gather Together and Harvest Hellos bundles – plus some Come to Gather DSP – and make a collage card for Fall!  Take a look-see:

And…here’s our sketch for the challenge!

I started with a piece of Early Espresso card stock, folded to make a landscape card front – and, using the large leaf image from the Gather Together stamp set, I stamped the leaves across the front of the card base in Early Espresso ink.

Next up is a strip of Come to Gather DSP, matted on Mint Macaron, and adhered right to the card front with Liquid Glue.  A second design, also matted on Mint Macaron, was next.

I used the same DSP design that I made my strip from and cut a Stitched Shapes circle.

The leaves – all cut with the wonderful dies in the Gathered Leaves Die set – are cut (and embossed at the same time!) from Mint Macaron and Pretty Peacock card stocks.  I used my Stampin’ Spritzer to lightly mist the card stock before running it thru the die cutting machine.  Yes – I did one set without misting….liked it better with the water.  So… 😉  I lightly curled the leaves just using my fingers to roll them.

I pulled out the Harvest Hellos stamp set and stamped the large pumpkin in Early Espresso on Very Vanilla.  I colored it with my Dark So Saffron and Light and Dark Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends – then I punched it out with the bundled Apple Builder Punch.  I also punched a little stem from Early Espresso.

I used the sentiment from Harvest Hellos and stamped it on Very Vanilla in Pretty Peacock.  Over top is a small pumpkin from Gather Together, stamped in stamped-off-once Mint Macaron – then cut with the matching die from Gathered Leaves.

I built up the collage with Liquid Glue for the leaves and Stitched Shapes Circle – and Dimensionals for the pumpkins.  Before adhering the colored pumpkin, I added a few loops of Cajun Craze Linen Thread from the new Gather Together Ribbon Combo.

I added some Pumpkin Pie jewels from the Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a second sentiment from Harvest Hellos in Pretty Peacock on a Very Vanilla panel.  Over top is a stamped-off-once Mint Macaron pumpkin from Gather Together.  I added a few more of those pumpkins – full strength! – across the bottom.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Mint Macaron mat and into my Early Espresso card base and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got more Gather Together pumpkins on the front…

…and more of the Come To Gather DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  These two bundles – Harvest Hellos and Gather Together – just go together like peanut butter and jelly!  Having them both – plus the Come To Gather DSP – will give you a huge head start for all your Fall and Thanksgiving projects!  You’ll be able to get your hands on all of it come 4 September!  I hope you like!

Now that you’ve seen my card, take a minute to hop thru all our projects today  If you click on the Next Blog button, you’ll go right to Kristi’s page. And you can just click on the names below to go direct to all the blogs!

Stampin’ Up! Garden Goodness Perfect Day!

‘Sup, y’all!?  Hope your week is going well!  And that you’re redeeming those Bonus Days coupons!! 🙂

My card today uses a new-to-me set called Garden Goodness!  And I used it to make a summery card that would be a good one for a birthday – or any big day!  Back to school, maybe?  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from this week’s CAS(E) This Sketch challenge.

And I played along with the Word Week challenge at Just Us Girls!  Nothing at all says summer to me like sun-ripe tomatoes fresh off the vine!

I started with some Very Vanilla card stock that I embossed in the Basket Weave 3D Embossing Folder then cut down to size and matted on Mango Melody for the card front.

On a smaller piece of Vellum card stock, I stamped the cherry tomato vine twice in Old Olive. I also added the stem image twice.  Then I let them dry really well – okay, I gave them a little help with my Heat Tool on Low! 🙂

When all dry, I added tomatoes in Cherry Cobbler and Pumpkin Pie.

Again, when the vellum was dry, I used Glue Dots to adhere the panel to the card front – hiding them under the stamped images – and putting two very carefully in the bottom corners!

I wrapped a length of 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim twice around the panel, securing it in the back with Glue Dots.

I stamped some more stems and tomatoes on Very Vanilla and fussy cut them.  I also stamped the sentiment banner in Pumpkin Pie and added the sentiment in Old Olive – and fussy cut that as well.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the sentiment and the “bottom” tomato.  Then I popped the other two tomatoes on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Finally, I tied a bow with the 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim and adhered it with a dab of Liquid Glue – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a second sentiment from Garden Goodness in Old Olive to a Very Vanilla panel.  I also added Old Olive stems and Pumpkin Pie cherry tomatoes!

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

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got more tomatoes…on the front…

…and on the envelope flap.

Et voila!  Summer = tomatoes.  Always – whether they’re on a vine outside your door or at your Farmer’s Market!  Garden Goodness, with it’s PERFECT tomato images brings those ripe goodies right to your projects!  I could hardly stop stamping them! 🙂  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Bird Ballads and Tasteful Textures 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!

I pulled out the Tasteful Textures stamp set and bundled Detailed Textures Dies and combined them with some Bird Ballad DSP and the sweet little bird from the Free as a Bird stamp set.  Take a look-see:

…and…here’s our sketch! 🙂

I love the angled panels – one of my favorite designs!

I started with some flower-dy paper from the Bird Ballad DSP and matted it on Basic Black for the card front.

In the middle of a smaller piece of Basic Black, I cut the flower image using the die in the Detailed Textures set.  Then I used a second piece of Bird Ballad DSP and that die cut panel to create the angled design – adhering them with Liquid Glue.

I wrapped a length of new Very Vanilla 3/8″ Scalloped Lace Trim around the panel, securing it in the back with Glue Dots.

From a piece of Shimmer Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper, I cut one of the flower – leaf – berry designs.  Then I cut it down a little and adhered part with the Vanilla side up and a couple of pieces with the White side up with Liquid Glue.

The sentiment, from Tasteful Textures, is stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the Bird Ballad DSP and cut out with a Stitched Nested Label die.

In the upper corner of the sentiment label, I stamped the feet of the bird from Free as a Bird in Tuxedo Black.  Then I popped the label onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a seperate piece of Whisper White, I stamped the Free as a Bird bird in Tuxedo Black and colored him with my Dark So Saffron and Light Pool Party and Coastal Cabana Stampin’ Blends.  Then I fussy cut him – just cutting his legs off.

I adhered the bird to the label with Liquid Glue – using Dimensionals under him as well.

I used a Glue Dot to adhere a leaf from the Bird Ballad Trinkets and a bow from the Very Vanilla 3/8″ Scalloped Lace Trim.

I added a single Pearl Basic Jewel and the card front was done!

For the inside, I inked the flower image from Tasteful Textures in Powder Pink, stamped it off once on scrap paper and then stamped it in the center of a Whisper White panel.  Over that I added a second sentiment in Tuxedo Black.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Basic Black mat and into a Daffodil Delight card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got a full strength Powder Pink flower image from Tasteful Textures on the front…

…and more of the flower-dy Bird Ballad DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I love how Bird Ballad – with its sweet flowers and chickadee (that’s my story and I’m sticking to it!) and the Tasteful Textures bundle came together to create a unashamedly feminine card!  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Tasteful Woven Textures Card

Happy Happy Hawwwmp Day, y’all!  Guess what?

What, Mary?

Well – one week and about 6 hours from that day’s blog post going live…we’ll be headed to the airport!  Whoo-hooo!

Gelato.  Baklave.  Tiramisu.  Dolmas.  Lasagna.  Spanakopita.  Spaghetti Carbonara!  Tiramisu – yes, I said it twice.  IT.  IS. THAT. GOOD!

See?  Been practicing my Greek and Italian! I think I’m ready!

My card today uses the new Tasteful Textures stamp set and bundled Tasteful Backgrounds Dies – paired up with some beautiful Woven Threads DSP.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from this week’s Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge.

And the color scheme – ALL the new 2019-2021 In Colors! – is from the Fab Friday challenge!

 

The Woven Threads DSP was a pretty obvious choice for this color challenge – so…I took the obvious route – and matted a piece on Pretty Peacock for the card front.

Next up is a piece in Rococo Rose – also matted on Pretty Peacock and adhered with Liquid Glue.

I cut a narrow strip of Terracotta Tile paper from the Woven Threads DSP and cut one of the pretty designs from it using the Tasteful Backgrounds Dies.  Then I matted it on Pretty Peacock with Liquid Glue.

I wrapped a piece of new Pretty Peacock 1/2″ Scalloped Linen Ribbon around that panel – securing it in the back with Glue Dots.  I tied a faux bow with a second short length of the same ribbon.  Then I popped the whole thing onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped a sentiment from the Tasteful Textures stamp set in Pretty Peacock on Whisper White and cut it with a Stitched Shapes Framelits oval.  I used Liquid Glue and a couple of Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the sentiment to the card front.

I added some 2019-2020 In Color Faceted Dots – in Pretty Peacock and Seaside Spray – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a flourish image from Tasteful Textures in stamped-off-once Balmy Blue in the center of a Whisper White panel.  Over the top of that, I added a second sentiment in Pretty Peacock.

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another stamped-off-once Balmy Blue flourish – I put it under the address area! – on the front…

…and I picked one of my Woven Threads DSPs and added it to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Wow!  The Tasteful Textures stamp set and bundled Tasteful Background Dies seem to have just been made to coordinate with the Woven Threads DSP, don’t you think?  I love how this one turned out.  I hope you like!

When I saw the color challenge, my brain gravitated to the Follow Your Art suite.  So out came the It Starts With Art stamp set, a little Follow Your Art DSP and the fun Button Button Embossing Folder (all of which will be available to you in JUST FIVE DAYS!!).  Take a look-see:

Here’s the color scheme!

And – I pulled from this week’s Tuesday Morning Sketches challenge for the layout.

I started with some Coastal Cabana paper from the Follow Your Art DSP and embossed it in the Button Button folder, then matted it on Daffodil Delight for the card front!

Next up is a small panel of Whisper White – also embossed in the Button Button folder and matted on Daffodil Delight.

I created the diagonal element of the sketch with some carrying-over Granny Apple Green 1/2″ Textured Weave Ribbon – I cut four short lengths and adhere them directly to the card front with Liquid Glue.

For the It Starts With Art sentiment, I stamped it in Granny Apple Green on Whisper White.  Smack over the sentiment, in stamped-off-once Daffodil Delight, I added two little re-inkers!

I cut the sentiment with a Stitched Nested Label and cut a larger Daffodil Delight label for the mat.  I adhered them together with Liquid Glue and popped it over the ribbons with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I pulled out my Follow Your Art Embellishment Kit and strung a little silver heart locket onto a Coastal Cabana paper clip and then hooked that to a Coastal Cabana felt heart.  I adhered the whole thing to the sentiment with a couple of Glue Dots, then added a tiny Whisper White Solid Baker’s Twine bow with one more Glue Dot.  And that was it for the card front!

On the inside, I stamped two more re-inkers from It Starts With Art in stamped off TWICE Daffodil Delight on a Whisper White panel.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Daffodil Delight mat and into my Granny Apple Green card base, popped the card base on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got two stamped-off-once Daffodil Delight re-inkers on the front…

…and then I added a little more Follow Your Art DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  The Follow Your Art set is just so perfect for all us crafty folk, don’t you think?  The It Starts With Art set – and it’s bundled Arts & Crafts Dies – will let you express your creativity all day long – and no fussy cutting those ribbons and inkers and pens!  I hope you like – and are counting the days with me!

Stampin’ Up! Well Written Daisy Lane

Happy Hawwwmp Day from Huntsville!  Had a good day yesterday – got here safely.  Got my work done and a new work computer (YEAH!!), got a really good mani/pedi and then had dinner with an old friend.  Followed by Handels Homemade Ice Cream.

Oh my goodness, y’all – if you happen to have a Handels anywhere near you…GO.

GO NOW.

Oh my goodness.

Yes – I know I said that twice.  It’s merited! 😉  I was a little too full (read…full as a tick!) but…SOOO worth it!

My card for you today uses the wonderful new Daisy Lane stamp set – and the Daisy Punch (which you can – and SHOULD – get right this very minute if you don’t have it already! 🙂 )  I put my daisies on some Perennial Essence DSP and added a Well Written die cut sentiment.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Floral Essence Blooming Tag Sneak Peek

Good morning! As you read this, I’m making my way towards a super-fun meeting in Huntsville.

Did the sarcasm come thru?

Yes?  Good – just checking.

True statement – I’d rather have surgery.  I am totally not kidding or exaggerating.  At least I could SLEEP thru surgery! 🙁

Okay.  Whining aside.  It’s only three days.  Two driving.  One meeting.  I can do anything for three days.

Right?

So – let’s talk about something completely different….a pretty card!  I used some of my favorite new product suite – the Perennial Essence Suite  (which you can pick up as part of my Special Bundle #4 – check it out down below) – including the Floral Essence stamp set and gorgeous Perennial Essence DSP – and the fun new Delightful Tag Topper Punch.  Take a look-see:
