Stampin’ Up! Many Messages and Lots of Heart Card

Good morning, y’all!  Are you hunkering down under the weight of snow and ice and bitter cold??  If so, I hope you’ve got power and water and heat.  And chocolate – chocolate is a pretty awesome winter-storm-survival food.

Yesterday, while a few of us were chatting and crafting on my Monday Zoom the Craftroom, I put together a pretty non-Mary kind of card.  In that…it’s not got a ton of layers.  And not a bow in sight!  But…I like how it turned out – and I think it would be a great card for a man!  It used a sentiment from my handy Many Messages bundle and a few Lots of Heart bundle hearts.  Take a look-see:

The layout and elements were inspired by the FUSION challenge this week.  The sketch side and, to some extent, the photo side! 🙂

I started with some light wood paper from the In Good Taste DSP and matted it on Mossy Meadow for the card front.

I took a second piece of the In Good Taste and made a banner with it using my Banner Triple Punch.

Using two of the heart dies in the Many Hearts die set (bundled with Lots of Heart), I cut a Mossy Meadow and a Gray Granite heart.  This pattern is one of the new 2021-2022 Neutrals 6″ x 6″ DSP pack – and you can get it for FREE when you join Stampin’ Up! before the end of Sale-A-Bration on 28 Feb.  And it’ll bring 160 of its friends (translation: you’ll get 200 SHEETS of new-design DSP!!).

I adhered the two hearts to the card front with Liquid Glue.

For the sentiment, I used the Many Messages stamp to stamp all those wonderful sentiments in Bumble Bee on Basic White and then cut them with the single big die in the bundled Messages Die.  Full disclosure:  I had this sentiment – and a bunch of others! – in my little tackle box from stamping and cutting them for a previous card!

I popped my sentiment onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals, added a Bumble Bee 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dot, and the card front was done.

Yep – done.  Set.  The.  Card.  Front.  Down!

On the inside, I inked the plaid heart from Lots of Heart in Mossy Meadow and stamped it in the corner of a Basic White panel.  I added a sentiment from Lots of Heart in Bumble Bee.  And another Bumble Bee enamel dot, too!

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

My Basic White Medium Envelope got the plaid Lots of Heart heart on the front in Mossy Meadow…

…and more of the In Good Taste DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Simple.  Hardly any layers (easy to mail – you’re welcome!).  Not my normal card style by any stretch.  But…I really like how it turned out!  The two sets – Lots of Heart and Many Messages go together perfectly, don’t you think??

And don’t forget – there’s only 12 days left in Sale-A-Bration!  Which means…in THIRTEEN days….no more free 200 sheets of new DSP (that’s a $59 value – on top of the awesome Starter Kit goodness!) for joining the team!  Be sure to pull the trigger and get in on the great deal before it’s gone.  I’d love to have you on my team! 🙂

Stampin’ Up Snailed It Happy Mail

Happy President’s Day, y’all!  Hope you’ve got the day off and have something enjoyable planned!  Like – maybe you’ll decide to make a card to send to a friend.  Well – tomorrow.  No mail today! 🙂

You might want to send a little happy mail and the card I’ve got for you today would be a great one to make!  It uses the sweet Snailed It bundle with the Snail Dies and the Snail Mail DSP!  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one was inspired by the Freshly Made Sketches challenge this week.

And the envelopes elements are from this week’s CASology Cue Card.

I started with a Real Red panel that I embossed in the Dainty Diamonds 3D Embossing Folder and then adhered to the front of my Real Red card base with Liquid Glue.

Next, I matted to pieces of Snail Mail DSP to Bermuda Bay panels and adhered them at jaunty angles with Liquid Glue.

Using the envelope die in the Snail Dies set, I cut two Basic White and one Bermuda Bay pieces.   I folded up the white envelopes, “sealing” them with a Glue Dot.  With the Bermuda Bay piece, I left the top flap up.

On a piece of Basic White, I stamped the Snailed It sentiment in Bermuda Bay and cut it with the little stitched rectangle in the Snail Dies.

I slid the little “note” into the Bermuda Bay envelope and stuck it in place with a little Liquid Glue.  Then I adhered the two white envelopes to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I used the little heart dies in the Snail Dies to cut Real Red hearts – and adhered one to each of the envelopes with Liquid Glue.

I used some Stampin’ Dimensionals to stick the Bermuda Bay envelope over top of the white ones.

I added a few red Resin Hearts to the card front and it was done

On the inside, I added a word bubble from Snailed It in Bermuda Bay to a Basic White panel.  I adhered a Real Red die cut heart to the inside.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Bermuda Bay mat and into my Real Red card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Basic White Medium Envelope got another image from Snailed It on the front.  I used my Stamparatus and inked the image with my Bermuda Bay and Real Red Stampin’ Write Markers.

…and a little more of the Snail Mail DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I love the Snailed It stamp set and the fun little envelope die in the bundled Snail Dies is way too cute!!  It all comes together with the Snail Mail DSP to create all manner of adorable cards!

I hope you like!

Finn often forgets that about 50 pounds was the cutoff for being a lap dog!

Which is actually okay with me – at least when he mostly lays on the sofa with just his head and/or hands in my lap.

 

I think he could have a career as a hand model, don’t you??

Stampin’ Up! Hey Chick Happy Day with Video Tutorial

Good morning! Happy Valentine’s Day – are there romantic plans in your future?  And – it’s ALSO a three-day weekend! I don’t know about y’all – but…three day weekends – when it’s cold and yucky outside – just aren’t that exciting!  There should be more of them later in Spring when the weather is pretty and we WANT to be outside doing things.  I think we need to combine chocolate (Valentine’s Day) with an acknowledgment that it’s nasty outside – and…snuggle down with some hot chocolate, a warm dog (or kitty!) and a good book!!  Who’s with me?

If you were able to spend some of your long weekend with me on my Facebook Live video last night, I appreciate it!  If not, here’s the replay on YouTube!

For this card, I used the undeniably adorable Hey Chick stamp set and bundled Chick Dies – with a little 2020-2022 In Color 6″ x 6″ DSP.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this card comes from this week’s Global Design Project sketch.

I started by matting a piece of Bumble Bee paper from the 2020-2022 In Color 6″ x 6″ DSP on Old Olive for the card front.

Next, I used the die in the Chick Dies to cut two chicken-wire die cuts.  I trimmed one down a bit and then adhered them to the card front with Liquid Glue.  Tip: I like the ends of things to “fall” off the edge of the card front a little – so…I placed the card front onto my card base (not adhered) so that I could be sure it hung over just enough – but NOT past the edges of the card base.

I cut the largest oval Stitched Shapes Die from a piece of Basic White and popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Then I started cutting barn-yard shapes using the Chick Dies.  From Soft Suede, I cut a chicken coop and a sign.  Mossy Meadow for four corn stalks, Old Olive for four corn husks, and Bumble Bee for four corn cobs.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the husks to the cobs and then to the stalks.  And I stamped the Hey Chick sentiment in Tuxedo Black onto the sign.

I used short little pieces of 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim to make corn “silks”.  This was my friend Debbie Lindauer’s idea (yes – I made this card while we were all playing and crafting on my Zoom The Craftroom on Thursday evening – so it was kind of a card-by-committee!).  I adhered the little pieces of trim to the back of each corn cob and then pulled it apart to make it all corn-silky! 😉

I adhered the coop and three stalks to the Basic White oval with Liquid Glue.

On a piece of Basic White, I stamped the Hey Chick crazy-hair chick in Tuxedo Black.  I colored her hair, tail feathers, legs and beak with my Flirty Flamingo and Bumble Bee Stampin’ Write Markers.  Her body is Dark So Saffron Stampin’ Blend.  Then I cut her out with the matching die in the Chick Dies.

I popped my chick on with Stampin’ Dimensionals, then tucked the final corn stalk in behind her.  Finally, with more Dimensionals and a little Liquid Glue, I popped the sign in place – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a second Hey Chick sentiment in Tuxedo Black on a Basic White panel.  The crazy hair chick peeks in from the corner!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to an Old Olive 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 miss crazy hair on the front…

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

Et Voila!  Seriously – how cute is this bundle??  I don’t know what I love more – the crazy chickens in the Hey Chick stamp set or the so-uber-fun die cuts in the Chick Dies?!?  How about you??

No matter what you like more – the stamp set and dies are limited time – so…if you love them like I do – get them sooner rather than later, okay?

I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Tranquil Thoughts 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!

I thought that the colors we had to choose from – we got five and were to pick at least 3! – would be a perfect opportunity to show off the pretty Tranquil Thoughts bundle.  So..that’s what I did!  Take a look-see:

And – here’s our challenge badge – you can see I picked Seaside Spray, Misty Moonlight and Highland Heather.

And I borrowed some inspiration for the layout from the sketch challenge from CAS Colours & Sketches.

I started with a piece of Seaside Spray paper from the 2019-2021 In Color 6″ x 6″ DSP that I matted on Highland Heather cardstock for the card front.

Next, I cut a smaller Basic White panel.  Using my Blending Brushes, I first blended Seaside Spray ink around the edges – letting it come in to the center, but leaving it mostly open.  Then I followed up with some Highland Heather blending.

In the middle of the panel, I stamped a Tranquil Thoughts sentiment in Highland Heather.  Then I adhered the panel to the card front with Liquid Glue.

Using the big die in the Tranquil Die set, I cut two of the cuts in Misty Moonlight.  I stacked them together with Liquid Glue – then popped them over the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Tip:  don’t be shy with the dimensionals – use them generously, and cut some little pieces to support the smaller leaves. 😉

I looped some Misty Moonlight/Silver twine (from the Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack) into a loose figure-8 and adhered it to the card front with Glue Dots.

I had a blue butterfly (squint yer eyes, I’m pretty sure it’s Misty Moonlight.  And…some other color pretty darned close!!) in my bowl of dies cuts.  This is cut from some of the Butterfly Bijou 6″ x 6″ DSP cut with the big die in the Brilliant Wings Dies.  These are both coming on 2 March!  He was just calling me – so…on he went with a little Liquid Glue.

I used my Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush on the wings of the butterfly – and around the edges of the big die cut – like a shadow on the card front.  Finally, I added some Opal Rounds and the card front was done!

On the inside, I used several of the leaves images in Tranquil Thoughts in Misty Moonlight and Seaside Spray around the edges of a Basic White panel.  Then I brushed Seaside Spray and Highland Heather around the panel with Blending Brushes.

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

My Basic White Medium Envelope got more of the Tranquil Thoughts leaves on the front…

…and more of the Seaside Spray 2019-2021 In Color 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I know – you probably figured I’d use Rococo Rose and Old Olive with this set.  But…I really like how it looks in these colors, don’t you?  Tranquil Thoughts has some really pretty sentiments – love the fonts and the words! – and the die cuts in the bundled Tranquil Dies are wunnermus!  The possibilities are endless with this bundle!!

I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Love You Always in My Heart Fun Fold with Video Tutorial

Good morning!  It’s Sunday so..that heralds the half-way point of your weekend.  And – not for nuthin’ – it’s Super Bowl Sunday!  If you’re one of the lucky spectators – I heard there are going to be 25,000 human people.  And…30,000 cardboard “people”.  For which human people were given the chance to pay – yes PAY!! – $100 for the “honor” of having your face – or your kid’s face – or…your dog’s face – “attend” the Super Bowl.

Seriously?!? 😳😳😳  That just does not pass my sniff-test.

Caveat – if YOU were one who paid $100 to “be” there then I think that’s awesome – no offense meant – and I hope “you” enjoy the experience. 😉

So – I’ve got a fun-fold for you today (for FREE! 😉 ) – that’s just in time for Valentine’s or Galentine’s Day and I showed you how to make it last night on my Facebook live video.  If you were able to spend some of your weekend with me, I appreciate it!  If not, here’s the replay on YouTube!

I love a good fun fold and I especially love it if it’s EASY – which this one totally is!  I used the pretty Love You Always Specialty DSP and the gorgeous Love You Always stamp set with the bundled Floral Heart Dies to make it gorgeous.  Take a look-see:


The colors on this one are from this week’s Global Design Project challenge.

Just Us Girls had a timely Word Week challenge, too!

I think it also fits well with the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.

I started by cutting two pieces of Rococo Rose cardstock to create the two “cards” that make-up the whole fun fold card. Card 1 is the “base” and then card 2 is the smaller cardbase that is adhered to the large back panel of card 1.

I matted a large piece of Love You Always Specialty DSP – in Rococo Rose – on Sahara Sand and adhered it to the back panel of card 1.  I cut and matted a smaller piece for the left small panel of the first card.

For the smaller card – I matted another piece of the Love You Always Specialty DSP on Sahara Sand and adhered it to the front of the card.

From a piece of Sahara Sand Love You Always Foil, I cut the large heart die from the Floral Heart Dies.  I adhered it to the front of the small card with Liquid Glue.

Then I used the small flower die in the Floral Heart Dies (it cuts three detailed flowers at a time!) to cut some flowers in Blushing Bride and Rococo Rose.  These are adhered to the foil heart image with Liquid Glue.

I stamped the sentiment from Always in My Heart in Rococo Rose on a piece of Basic White and cut it with the same large die in the Always Die set.  Then I popped the heart onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I tied two lengths of white twine from the Snail Mail Twine Combo Pack into a bow and adhered it with a Glue Dot.  Then I added a few Opal Rounds and that was it for the card front.

I stamped a second sentiment from Always in My Heart in Rococo Rose onto a Basic White panel.  Then I stamped two flowers from the set in Rococo Rose and filled them using the fill image – in stamped off once Blushing Bride.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Sahara Sand mat and into the smaller card base.  Then I used Liquid Glue to adhere that card into the larger card #1 – making sure it was centered on the large back panel.  And the card was done!

My Basic White Medium Envelope got the Always in My Heart flowers on the front…

…and more of the Love You Always Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This super-easy fun fold is great for showcasing our gorgeous papers like the Love You Always Specialty DSP – and the perfectly sized front of the smaller card is just right for the big, bold Floral Heart Die cut!  The bundled Always in My Heart stamp set covers the gamut from love to friendship – Valentine’s to Anniversary! 🙂

I hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix 

Well, Finn heard that the first Saturday in February is National Ice Cream For Breakfast Day.

Yes.  Really.

So…he wanted to give y’all a recipe he found on the internet for ice cream for your fur-kids.

Not your cats.  He’s pretty sure cats should not get ice cream made for dogs.

It’s probably…bad for them or something. 😉

Here you go!

Ingredients

  • 3-4 ripe bananas, peeled
  • 32 ounces plain yogurt, low-fat
  • 1 cup peanut butter – (make SURE it doesn’t have Xylitol in it! 🤢 According to the great Google: The most popular brands of peanut butter, such as Jif, Skippy, Smuckers and Peter Pan are all xylitol-free.  Which is good, cuz that’s totally what we have!)

Instructions

  1. Add bananas, peanut butter, and yogurt to a blender.
  2. Blend until thoroughly mixed.
  3. Pour into ice cube tray and freeze.

Hope your kids love their treat!

Stampin’ Up! Snailed It Happy Thoughts Slim-Line Card

Good morning and welcome to another work week.  I hope it will be a good one for all of you!

My card today is a Slim-Line one and I don’t usually do them.  The lack of envelopes is a sticky point for me – but…I saw the sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches this week and I wanted to play along.  And it occured to me that….regular business envelopes are slim-line-card-friendly.  And – mine are the security-kind so…no one will be able to “peek” at my card! 😉

With that problem solved…I pulled out my Snailed It bundle – yes, FINALLY got it!!, the coordinating Snail Mail DSP and the Happy Thoughts stamp set to make a sort of thank-you-y sort of congratulations-y card.  Take a look-see:

 

And here’s the challenge from Freshly Made Sketches.

I started with a long piece of Snail Mail DSP that I matted on Real Red for the card front.  Then I looped some Blushing Bride twine from the Snail Mail Twine Combo twice around the panel – securing it on the card front under the decorations.

I used the square die in the Snail Die Set to cut two pieces of Snail Mail DSP – and adhered them both to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I stamped the Snailed It sentiment in Real Red on a piece of Whisper White (Basic White will work, too), cut it with the next-to-smallest Stitched So Sweetly rectangle die and popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

There are two dies in Snail Die Set that cut adorable snails from a couple of the designs in the Snail Mail DSP – so I cut them out!

Using a combination of Liquid Glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals, I adhered the two sweet snails to the card front.

Then I cut three hearts from Real Red – using the Snail Dies again – and adhered them with Liquid Glue.

I tied two pieces of Blushing Bride Snail Mail Twine in a bow and adhered it with a Glue Dot – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped a Happy Thoughts sentiment in Real Red on a Whisper White panel.  In the corner, in Tuxedo Black, I stamped the cute Snailed It mushroom image.  I also stamped that image again on the two DSPs I’d used in the front.  Then I fussy cut some mushrooms and adhered them to the stamped image with Liquid Glue (gotta love a little Paper Piecing!).  I added a couple three Resin Heart Embellishments, too!

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

My white business envelope got a Real Red image from Snailed It on the front…

…and I added some of the Bermuda Bay Snail Mail DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila! Sometimes you just gotta think outside the box, huh?  A business envelope – decorated, of course, cuz…#nonekkidenvelopes!…is a perfectly acceptable mailing vessel!  Which is good – because this Snailed It-strewn card is too cute to hide at home!

The Snail Mail DSP is so much fun – and how perfectly perfect for piecing the mushrooms on the inside!

Happy Thoughts is the perfect set to have in your tool box – with sentiments that are ready for any occasion!

I hope you like!
