Stampin’ Up! True Love Pansy Petals Sneak Peek

Good morning and welcome to the week!  Guess what happens one week from today?  That’s 3 May.  Does that date ring a bell??  Yep – you got it.  That’s the last day you’ll be able to order from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog!  So…if there are things you’re wanting – you might want to get busy!

Of course, that means that the day AFTER one week from today….the brand new and amazing 2021-2022 Annual Catalog with be live!  Whoo-hoo!  THAT is the day I’ll be ordering all our share goodies to divide AND all your Special Bundles!  You’ve still got time to get in on both great deals, so…. 😉

My card today features a little already-available and a little coming-next week!  True Love DSP (available right now) sets the stage for Pansy Petals DSP flowers and sweet Pansy Patch sentiments (coming next week)!  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

And the color palette is from the Color Throwdown challenge.

I started with a piece of the True Love DSP and, using a Blending Brush, colored the panel with Crumb Cake ink.  Then I matted it on Poppy Parade for the card front.

I found two likely designs from the new Pansy Petals DSP and cut a Stitched Rectangle die cut from each one.  These are adhered to the front of the card with Liquid Glue.

I adhered a Gold Hoop Embellishment to the card front with a few Glue Dots.

Using the large and small outline die in the Pansy Die Set, I cut three pansies from the Pansy Petal DSP.  I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere one of the larger flowers over the hoop.

I tied a double-loop Linen Thread bow and added it with a Glue Dot.  Then I used double-stacked Dimensionals to add the second large flower.  The final – smallest – flower is adhered with a single Dimensional and a little Liquid Glue.

I stamped the Pansy Patch sentiment in Poppy Parade on a Basic White strip – snipped banner ends and then used a Dimensional under the right side of the strip and Liquid Glue on the left – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a second Pansy Patch sentiment in Poppy Parade on a Basic White panel.  I also used the smaller flower images with Bumble Bee and Pale Papapa ink to add some pansies here and there.  I added some flower centers in Tuxedo Black (there’s a tiny little stamp for that in the set!).

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Poppy Parade mat and into my Crumb Cake card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Basic White Medium Envelope got more Pansy Patch flowers on the front…

…and more of the Pansy Petals DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  That True Love DSP is so cool – I love that you can coordinate it with ANY color just using a Blending Brush and some ink – or Stampin’ Blends or Watercolor Pencils!  And the Pansy Petals set is…amazing!  The gorgeous Pansy Patch flowers and sentiments, perfectly coordinated with the Pansy Dies (which cut flowers right from the Pansy Petals DSP – whoohooo!).

I hope you like! And – don’t forget – the Pansy Patch Bundle and Pansy Petals DSP are just a part of my Special Bundle #3: Let’s Get Floral Bundle.  There are a LOT of other flowery wonders to be found in that one – so be sure to check it out and get your order in!

So – we had a little wind overnight on Saturday.  Had a few trees down when we went out on Sunday morning.

Like…this one across the driveway!


So – Wayne pulled out the chainsaw and the heavy equipment to make it so we could leave if we wanted to.

Well – that set off a firestorm of tree felling and cutting!

Thought you might enjoy seeing my lumberjack at work – TODAY is his birthday!!   😉

Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Earth Beauty of Friendship Sneak Peek with Video Tutorial

Happy half-way-thru-the-weekend!  Hope it’s going well.  Our planting plans were thwarted by rain most of the day on Saturday.  And I suspect we’ll be thwarted by eveything-is-soaking-wet-and-muddy today.  So…another inside-work day for us, I’m guessing.  Bleh. 😉

If you were able to join me yesterday for my Facebook live, I appreciate you spending part of your weekend with me.  If not, but you’d like to check it out, here’s the replay on YouTube! 🙂

 

This card features a sneak peek at the new Beauty of Friendship stamp set with its bundled Beautiful Trees dies – with the Beauty of the Earth DSP taking center stage!  You’ll be able to get all of it starting on 4 May when the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog goes live.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one was inspired by the sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches this week!

I started with some of the Beauty of the Earth DSP that I cut for a card front – then I cut a smooth-side circle from the middle using a Layering Circles Die.

I matted the DSP panel on Misty Moonlight and Cinnamon Cider mats using Liquid Glue.

I matted the DSP circle on scallop-edge die cuts – in Misty Moonlight and Cinnamon Cider – from the Layering Circles dies.  Then I added it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

The Beautiful Trees dies has two rectangular dies for sentiments.  I used the smaller one to cut a wood-grain piece of DSP from the Beauty of the Earth DSP.

I stamped the Beauty of Friendship sentiment in Cajun Craze on a piece of Basic White and cut it with the second rectangle die in the Beautiful Trees dies – then adhered it to the wood rectangle with Liquid Glue.

Now – my trim uses Crumb Cake and White Baker’s Twine from the brand new Baker’s Twine Combo Pack (it has FIVE rolls of twine!!).  I cut about 16″ of each – two in Crumb Cake and one in White.

I tied them together in a knot and then braided it.  When I got done – I used Glue Dots to adhere the “rope” in a figure-8 loop to the card front.

I added a few double-stacked Stampin’ Dimensionals right by the loops and used them to adhere my sentiment to the card front – and that was it!

On the inside, I added a second sentiment from Beauty of Friendship sentiment in Cajun Craze to a Basic White panel.  In the corner, I stamped the tree trunk image in Early Espresso, added the smaller tree top in Cinnamon Cider (this is SUCH a cool image!).  Then I used the little splotches image to stamp all over in Cajun Craze and Misty Moonlight.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Misty Moonlight and Cinnamon Cider mat and then into my Cajun Craze card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Basic White Medium Envelope got the Beauty of Friendship tree on the front…

…and more of the wood-grain Beauty of the Earth DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This Beauty of the Earth suite is so gorgeous  – with the watercolor-inspired images in the DSP and the wonderful sentiments and trees in the Beauty of Friendship stamp set.  And – I haven’t even really gotten busy with the Beautiful Trees dies!

 

I hope you like!  And – if you love this set…check out my Special Bundle #2: It’s a Beautiful World Bundle.

Stampin’ Up! Quiet Meadow Sneak Peek for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good morning, y’all!  It’s Thursday – which means it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!!  We’ve got a sketch challenge to work with today and I’m excited to see what everyone brings to the table!  I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop today!

When I saw this sketch – I remembered the cool wildflower dies in the new Meadow Die Set – which is coming to you on 4 May, bundled with the lovely new Quiet Meadow stamp set – and knew it would be perfect for this sketch.  Take a look-see:

And here’s our sketch!

I used the colors from The Paper Player challenge, too.

I started with a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock that I embossed in the Old World Paper 3D Embossing Folder and adhered to a Merry Merlot mat with Liquid Glue to create the card front.

Next, I used the largest of the circle Stitched Shapes Dies to cut a Crumb Cake circle.  Y’all – this amazing die set is retiring – so…get it NOW if you don’t have it already! 🙂

I stamped the Quiet Meadow wildflower image onto the Stitched Shape circle.  Over it – I stamped the cool script image twice in Crumb Cake.  Then I adhered the circle to the card front with Liquid Glue.

Using one of the…many!…dies in the Meadow die set…

…I cut one from Vellum cardstock and one from Crumb Cake cardstock.  I embossed the Crumb Cake die cut in the Old World 3D Embossing Folder.  Then I adhered both flowers to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I tied a Linen Thread double-loop bow and added it with a Glue Dot.

The sentiment, from Quiet Meadow, is stamped in Merry Merlot on Very Vanilla and cut with the label die in the Meadow set.  I used the same die to cut a Misty Moonlight piece from the 2020-2022 In Color 6″ x 6″ DSP.  I adhered the two labels together with Liquid Glue, then popped them onto the card front with double-stacked Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I used Glue Dots to adhere three of the new Bee Trinkets (these are coming soon in the new catalog!) and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added the Quiet Meadow wildflower and script images in Crumb Cake to a Crumb Cake panel.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Merry Merlot mat and into my Misty Moonlight card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got the Quiet Meadow images on the front in Crumb Cake…

…and more of the Misty Moonlight 2020-2022 In Color 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Y’all!!  This Quiet Meadow set – with it’s wunnermus bundled Meadow Dies – is going to be HUGE!!  I mean – the die set creates so many textural florals – it’s crazy!!  Match it with the sentiments and images in Quiet Meadow and…you’ve got a sure-fire winner!

I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Color & Contour Sneak Peek

Happy Happy HAWWWMP DAY!!  Wheeeeee…..cresting the middle of the week and sliding down the backside to the weekend!  This Saturday I get to do my virtual OnTour Event with Stampin’ Up!  This is a Zoom event – in lieu of in person, cuz…you know!  I’ve heard good things from the folks who’ve already had their event – so….I’m looking forward to it! 🙂 Hope you’ve got something that you’re looking forward to, too! 🙂

I’ve got a Sneak Peek for you today of a cool new bundle from the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog – that you’ll be able to pick up on 4 May!  The stamp set, called Color & Contour, will be bundled with a cool set called Scalloped Contours.  I used both of them and added some Flowers For Every Season DSP  (available right now in the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog – but retiring SOON!).  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from the sketch at the Inspired By challenge.

…and by the inspiration photo from the As You See It Challenge.  This one was also a speed challenge – and this card took me 9:40 to complete (you know – once I’d figured out what I was going to do)! 🙂

I cut a Just Jade piece of paper from the Flowers For Every Season DSP  using the largest Scalloped Contour Die and then I adhered it with Liquid Glue to the front of a Misty Moonlight card base.

On a piece of Basic White, I stamped the flower image from Color & Contour in Just Jade – then I cut it with the largest Stitched Shapes circle die and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I stamped the Color & Contour detailed outline flower three times on Basic White – twice in Bumble Bee and once in Magenta Madness.  I used the fill stamp (this is a two-step set) with the same colors.  I cut the three flowers with the die in the Scalloped Contours set.

I adhered the Magenta Madness and one of the Bumble Bee flowers with Liquid Glue and popped the third flower on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The sentiment, from Color & Contour, is stamped in Misty Moonlight on Basic White, and cut it with the smallest rectangle in the Scalloped Contour die set.  I popped it onto the card front with Dimensionals.

I added Cinnamon Cider or Bumble Bee dots from the 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dots to the middle of the flowers – added a Just Jade dot to the sentiment and the card front was done!

Serious?!  How fun is this set?? I LOVE those scalloped rectangles – and they’re perfectly sized for A2 cards!

On the inside, I stamped the Bumble Bee Color & Contour flowers in the corner of a Basic White panel.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Just Jade mat and into the card base and the card was done!

My Basic White Medium Envelope got the Color & Contour flowers on the front…

..and more of the Flowers For Every Season DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This quick card was easy to make with this new Color & Contour bundle  – and I KNOW you’re going to want it for yourself, just as soon as you can get it – which is 4 May.  Unless, of course, you decided to join the SU! team right now – THEN you could get it – and any of our other pre-order goodies! – right now in your Starter Kit (a huge value in and of itself) and with your cool new 20% discount! 😉

I hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix 

Wayne and I worked outside on Sunday and much of Monday – planting and tidying up the patio off the barn.

At the end of the day on Monday, after we fed, it was so nice outside that we sat out on the patio for a bit.

With Finn, of course – he LOVES that time of night outside!

Wayne – kicking back.

Oh wait – had to adjust the ball cap – sorry!

NOW he looks cool!

Finn don’t need no stinkin’ ball cap to look cool….

Pretty darned nice way to end the day, I have to say! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Prized Peony Garden Love & Thanks for the Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Good morning, y’all – welcome to another edition of Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team blog hop!  Each month we make projects centered around a theme – and this month our theme is For the Girls/Ladies!  We can interpret that any way we want – so…be sure to check and see everyone’s projects – we’ve got a bunch of talented ladies hopping with us this month!

I thought “pretty flowers” when I saw the challenge – and the Prized Peony Bundle came to mind right away!  I combined it with some lovely Peony Garden DSP.  Take a look-see:

I used the sketch side of the FUSION challenge for my layout on this one.

The Just Add Ink challenge fits perfectly.  It’s pretty obvious which two I chose!

Finally, the Tic-Tac-Toe challenge comes into play. I used Pattern Paper – Free – Embellishment (although why the heck I didn’t add a new Bee Trinket is beyond me! 🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️)

I started with a piece of Gray Granite paper from the Peony Garden DSP that I matted on Gray Granite for the card front.

Next up, I took a second – flower-strewn piece – and cut the scalloped edge with the die in the Peony Die set.  Then I adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I wrapped some Mossy Meadow 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim twice around the panel, securing it in the back with Glue Dots.

I stamped the large Prized Peony image in Gray Granite on Basic White, then I cut it with the matching die in the Peony Die set.

I colored the flower with my Dark Petal Pink Stampin’ Blend and Light Mossy Meadow Blend – using the stamped blending markings in the image – which means it’s super easy to color!

I popped the flower onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the Prized Peony sentiment in Gray Granite on a piece of Petal Pink cardstock and cut it with the next-to-smallest rectangle in the Stitched So Sweetly Die set.

I popped the sentiment over the flower and trim with more Dimensionals.

I tied a simple bow using two pieces of the Mossy Meadow 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim and adhered it with a Glue Dot.

Some Champagne Rhinestones here and there finished off the card front.

On the inside, I stamped another sentiment from Prized Peony in Gray Granite on a Basic White panel.  Over it, in stamped-off-once Petal Pink, I added the geometric image from the set a few times.  In the corner, I stamped another Prized Peony image and colored it with my Blends.  Then I popped on one more Champagne Rhinestone.  Cuz I could! 😉

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

My Basic White Medium Envelope got another Prized Peony flower on the front…

…and more of the Peony Garden DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This gorgeous Prized Peony stamp set and bundled Peony Dies are coming back in the new 2021-2022 Annual Catalog.  Whoo-hoo!!  BUT – the bundle pricing (10% off!) is GOING AWAY – So…if you don’t have this beauty yet, get it before the current catalog ends on 3 May!  But – the Peony Garden DSP will NOT be back – so…get it right now (and…it’s just $9.20 right now – that’s a 20% savings!)

I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Ridiculously Awesome Art Gallery for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good morning, y’all!  It’s Thursday – which means it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!!  We’ve got a color challenge to work with today and I’m excited to see what everyone brings to the table!  I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop today!

Stampin’ Up! Field of Flowers Thinking of You!

Good Monday morning, y’all!  Welcome to the work week! Hope you had a good Easter – we did some work around the place then had a good dinner with some of our Honeybaked Ham we’d frozen at Christmas, sweet potatoes from the Mealthy and collard greens from our garden!  First meal from the garden in 2021!  Whoo-hoo!  And – of course, I whipped us up a couple of deviled eggs.  Cuz…holiday dinner! 🙂

Today’s card features a really pretty stamp set – that is retiring (😢) soon – called Field of Flowers.  I tried my hand at another clean and simple card with it – take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from the Freshly Made Sketches challenge this week.

And the pretty color palette is from the Hand Stamped Sentiments color challenge.

I started by placing a Very Vanilla panel into my Stamparatus.  On top of it – where it would be on the card – I placed a Stitched So Sweetly rectangle – also from Very Vanilla.  I held it in place with a little repositionable runner adhesive.

I first stamped the Field of Flowers sentiment in Highland Heather.

Next, I added the stem/leaves image in stamped off once Pear Pizzaz.  Then I stamped the flowers in So Saffron.  Notice that I let both hang off the edge of the die cut!

I picked up the die cut and stamped the leaves and flowers again on the card front itself.

Then I matted the panel on Highland Heather for the card front.

I used a piece of the Very Vanilla ribbon from the Forever Greenery Ribbon Combo Pack (ALSO retiring soon!) to wrap around the panel – securing it in back with Glue Dots.

I added the little Field of Flowers dragonfly in Highland Heather by the flower – then popped the die cut onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped a second Field of Flowers sentiment in Highland Heather on a Very Vanilla panel.  Then I stamped the stems in Pear Pizzazz, the flowers in So Saffron and the little dragonfly in Highland Heather!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Highland Heather 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 the Field of Flowers florals and dragonfly on the front…

…and I adhered some new Subtles 6″ x 6″ DSP in So Saffron to the envelope flap.  Note:  this is one of the NEW designs from the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog!

Et Voila!  Still not really my wheelhouse – had to keep turning away from my embellishment stash! – but…I DO love the Field of Flowers stamp set.

Field of Flowers – and it’s bundled Confetti Flowers Punch…

CONFETTI FLOWERS BORDER PUNCH

– are both retiring soon….like on 3 May! You can get that fun punch for just $9.20 – that’s 60% off!!). 🙂

I hope you like!

Finny had a good Easter.

It included a few rides in the truck – just around the place as we moved mulch – some time spend sleeping under the golf cart – some time spent sleeping in the house and…his Easter cookie!

Stampin’ Up! Flowering Cactus Life Can Be Prickly!

Good morning, y’all and happy Tuesday!  Hope your week is proceeding apace to the weekend.

Now – let me say, to start out….I hadn’t intended to use the Flowering Cactus Medley two days in a row.

I really hadn’t.  I even second and third guessed my decision.  But – once the card was in my head – I had to make it.  So…I hope you’ll give me a pass!  Take a look-see:

The layout is from the FUSION challenge this week – obviously I used the sketch side!

My friend and teammate, Pam Kean, had sent me a card a while back and I loved it!

On Monday, my eye fell on it again and my brain said…make THAT – but with a cactus.  So – I did!

I started with a piece of Basic White that I embossed in the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder.

Next up, I cut a pretty piece of Flowering Cactus DSP (included in the Medley) using a Stitched So Sweetly rectangle die.

I adhered the die cut to the white panel with Liquid Glue, trimmed the excess with my Paper Trimmer and matted the whole thing on Mint Macaron for the card front.

I used a Stitched Shapes square to cut a Calypso Coral square – then used a Layering Squares die to cut out the middle to create a frame.  Then I snipped the frame on one edge.

I cut another same-size Stitched Shapes square from Mint Macaron and then “wove” the Calypso Coral frame around it – adhering the snipped ends with a little Liquid Glue.

I cut a smaller Stitched Shapes square from Basic White and adhered it with Liquid Glue.  Then I adhered the whole thing over the Stitched So Sweetly DSP piece with Liquid Glue.

I used a die in the Flowering Cactus Medley to cut one of the Calypso Coral-tinged cacti from the Flowering Cactus DSP and popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a narrow strip of Basic White, I stamped the Flowering Cactus sentiment in Mossy Meadow.  Then I popped it across the bottom of the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I used some Glue Dots to adhere a few of the Calypso Coral felt embellishments and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a second Flowering Cactus sentiment in Mossy Meadow.  Next to it, in stamped-off-once Calypso Coral, I added a pretty double-flower.

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

My Basic White Medium Envelope got the flower image again – but in full strength Calypso Coral – on the front…

…and more of the Flowering Cactus DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  So…can you forgive me??  I really love how this turned out (thanks, Pam, for the inspiration!) and I am really REALLY loving all the pieces and parts that you get when you snap up the Flowering Cactus Medley!!

I hope you like!

If you’d like to recreate this card, all the products and card cuts are listed below!

A little closer – can’t help it – I love this time of year, here!  Of course, I’m also a little partial to those golden girls in the late afternoon sunshine! 🙂

And…the camera lens filters out the massive clouds of yellow pollen floating all over here and there!
