Finn Fan Fix 

Finn has a new side-gig!

He’s providing a listening (mostly?) ear to little humans while they read to him!

Yes – he’s a PALS dog (sort of – we’re not certified for in-person stuff).  It’s all on ZOOM – and will hopefully keep going like that even when the C-word goes away!  Cuz this format means…no bath!  No nail trimming!  No….wild-child!

He heard a story about a llama and one about Finding Dory this week!

He’s got a “small” issue with attention span but…he’s trying! Note to self: be sure to have a LOT of little treats to help with that! 😉

Stampin’ Up! Love of Leaves Fun Fold with Video Tutorial

Good morning and happy Friday!  So – last night was pretty fun!  We had a concert from Pat Benatar and yes…she DID hit us with her best shot.  I mean, we belong AND we are young-adjacent, so… you know! 😉

If you were able to join me yesterday for my YouTube live, I appreciate you spending some time with me – if not, but you’d like to see the replay, here ’tis! 🙂

This card, which features the gorgeous Love of Leaves bundle and stunningly pretty Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP – is an uber-easy fun fold called a Triple Fold card.  I saw this fun-fold on a Splitcoast Stampers tutorial from Mary Bush this week and decided I needed to do it for you right away! 🙂  Take a look-see:

I used the inspiration photo from The Card Concept.  I’d say this is a clean and layered card? 😉

For this one, I selected the color palette using the CAS Colours & Sketches challenge this week.

I started with a piece of Cajun Craze cut at 5 1/2″ x 11″.  Then I used my Simply Scored tool to score along the long edge at 1 3/4″, 5 1/2″ and 9 3/4″.

I folded the card at the 5 1/2″ mark and then folded at the other two score lines in the OPPOSITE direction.  And that made the Triple Fold.

Two different pieces of Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP, matted on Pear Pizzaz, decorated the front of the card and the two flaps – all the panels are adhered with Liquid Glue.

My belly band is a 1″ x 11″ piece of Pear Pizzazz, folded around the folded card and “seamed” together on the front with Liquid Glue.

On a piece of Whisper White – I stamped the Love of Leaves sentiment in Pear Pizzazz – and cut it with a label die from the Tasteful Labels die set.

I stamped two of the leaves – one in Cajun Craze and one in Bumble Bee – on Whisper White and then used the cut die and the emboss die to cut them out.

I adhered the Bumble Bee leaf to the sentiment label with Liquid Glue.  Then I added a Linen Thread figure eight bow with a Glue Dot and an In Good Taste Element with Liquid Glue.  I popped the second leaf over it all with a couple of Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered the sentiment to the belly band with Liquid Glue, added a Gold Glitter Enamel Dot and that was it for the front of the card.

On the inside, I stamped a second Love of Leaves sentiment in Pear Pizzazz on a Whisper White panel.  In the corner, I stamped the Bumble Bee leaf – then added a Sticky note mask over top and stamped the Cajun Craze leaf.

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Love of Leaves on the front…

…and a bit more of the Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP on the envelope flap!

Et Voila!  One of my favorite sets ever – Love of Leaves with its wunnermus Stitched Leaves dies! – perfectly decorates the front of this super-easy Triple Fold fun fold card!  And…all those layers let the stunning Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP really shine, don’t you think?

I hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix 

So – the other day, Finny rode with his Dad to the bank.

He likes the bank.  Cuz…they give a cookie to the dog!

Buck never cared – wouldn’t even touch the cookie.

Finn is NOT Buck!

Well – for whatever reason – the teller didn’t see him or realize he was there.  So…no bone.

🙁

We went again yesterday.

Hello the BANK!!!

Do they see me??!

THERE’S A DOG IN THE CAR!!!

IT’S MEEEEE!!!

You’ll be glad to know – they DID see him and a cookie DID come thru the vacuum tube with our cash!

Phew!! 😉

Stampin’ Up! Coming Home Tag Buffet Fun Fold Christmas Card with Video Tutorial

Good morning and happy Friday!  Okay – believe it or don’t – Halloween is tomorrow (also the last day of the DSP Sale!)!  Where has this year gone?  I know it’s been a rough one for so many folks – so…I won’t be sorry to see it go.  But…it has REALLY flown by! 🙂

If you were able to join me yesterday for my YouTube live, I appreciate you spending some time with me – if not, but you’d like to see the replay, here ’tis! 🙂

I found this cool easel card as I was perusing the interwebs – there are a few videos out there – but I used the one from Stamptastic Designs as my jumping off point!

Mine is made with the fun Coming Home stamp set and bundled Home Together Dies – plus a sentiment from the Tag Buffet set.  And – of course, some of the super-cute Trimming the Town DSP (on sale thru tomorrow!!).  Take a look-see:

Right?  How cute is that??

I started with a regular 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ Poppy Parade card base – scored at 5 1/2″ on the long side (just like usual).  Then – using my Paper Trimmer – I cut at 1 1/4″ and again at 4 1/4″ along the short side – cutting only as far as the score line.  Then I scored the larger middle flap at 2 1/8″ (this is the easel).  It’s pretty easy to see in the video! 🙂

I used Liquid Glue to adhere two strips of Trimming the Town DSP (the one with the Christmas trees on it!) to Old Olive Mats – and then onto the two side strips.

With Stampin’ Seal – I stuck the two side flaps to the back panel of the card base.

I adhered a larger – Polka Dot design – on Old Olive and used Liquid Glue to adhere it to the inside (under the easel.

I also adhered the same paper – with Old Olive mats – two each of the easel panels.

On a piece of Whisper White, I stamped the two-story house and the card from the Coming Home set in Early Espresso and two large and two small trees in Old Olive.  I colored the house with my Light Pool Party Stampin’ Blend for the walls, Dark Crumb Cake for the roof, and Light Cinnamon Cider for the door and chimney.  The trees used the Light and Dark Old Olive Blends and the car is the Light Misty Moonlight.

Then I cut them all with their matching die in the Home Together set. I also cut a second – blank – Whisper White house die – that I adhered to the back of the colored die cut with Liquid Glue (to hide the Blends bleed-thru!).

I used Liquid Glue on the bottom half of the house and then adhered it to the bottom half of the easel.  I added the trees with Liquid Glue or Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals – then popped the car between the trees with a Dimensional.

I stamped a Tag Buffet sentiment in Poppy Parade on Whisper White and punched it with the Everyday Punch.  Under it, I added the little pine bough (from Tag Buffet) in Old Olive.  Then I popped it onto the inside panel with Dimensionals.  It’s the easel holder-upper.

I added a Pool Party Holiday Rhinestone – and the card front was done.

On the back, I added a couple of Coming Home trees in Old Olive.  Then I adhered fussy cut pieces of the sentiment from one of the fun papers in the Trimming the Town DSP.  I added a Pool Party Rhinestone to the top of one of the trees.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to an Old Olive mat and onto the back of the card – and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Coming Home trees on the front…

…and more of the Trimming the Town DSP on the envelope flap!

Et Voila!  I don’t know what I like more about this card – the center-easel fun fold itself or the sweet little city-scene I was able to create with the Coming Home bundle with help from the Tag Buffet sentiment!

Or is it the fun Trimming the Town DSP – which is on Sale thru tomorrow?  It’s really hard to say!

I hope you like!

If you’d like to re-create this card, all the card cuts and products used are listed below! 🙂

Finn Fan Fix 

I’m guessing this looks like two horses tied to a wall.

And – well.  Yeah.  That’s what it IS.

Sort of!

This is a Rainy Day training session.

Finn – at the end of the aisle – is learning to stay out of the main aisle when the girls are out.  It’s a safety thing.

The ladies are learning…the hardest.  Thing.  Ever.

Know what it is?

Yep.  PATIENCE!

How to deal – quietly – with being bored.

It ain’t easy, my friends!

Boredboredboredboredboredbored.

But – when they “get” it…

See her right hind foot?  Toe resting on the ground (aka – she’s “got a hip cocked”).

Means she’s relaxed and coping.

For a second.

Had to take the picture really fast!  ROFL!

If you’re doing the math, you’ll have realized I probably won’t be on my Facebook video tomorrow evening – the rehearsal dinner is then.  I am…touched beyond measure that we were invited to that – especially given then we’re neither parents nor wedding party!  I guess we’re honorary parents!

Shoot.  Let the tears start! 🥰😢

Anywho – sniff – let’s talk card!

If you were able to join me yesterday for my YouTube live, I appreciate you spending some time with me – if not, but you’d like to see the replay, here ’tis! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! In the Pines Bundle Sneak Peek Fun Fold with Video Tutorial

Happy Friday, y’all!  I hope you’ve had a wonderful week – we’ve been in the tropical storm pattern all week.  Muggy.  Hot.  Rain every day.

Guess how well our lavender plants are doing?

If you guessed…not so well, then…you are correct!  We’ve got as much drainage as we could manage but…the little babies are struggling with their wet feet.

They may have trench foot.  Hmm.  Maybe I need to sprinkle some Dr. Scholl’s foot powder on them? 🤔🤔🤔

Or not….

So, if you were able to join me yesterday for my YouTube live, I appreciate you spending some time with me – if not, but you’d like to see the replay, here ’tis! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Happiest of Birthdays Fun Fold with Video Tutorial for The Paper Players

Hey y’all – it’s Sunday, which means I’ve got another fun challenge for you from the Paper Players – it’s a clean-and-simple theme challenge from Jaydee.  Our theme is CELEBRATION! – which is appropriate since this is The Paper Player’s 500th Challenge!! Whoo-hoo!!  I hope you’ll come and play along to help us celebrate!  🙂

If you were able to join me yesterday for my Facebook Live video, I appreciate you spending some of your weekend with me!  If you weren’t able to watch the live version, but you’d like to see the replay on YouTube…here ’tis!

I picked birthday celebration for my theme – and pulled from the Happiest of Birthdays stamp set for my big bold focal sentiment.  I added it atop some relatively subtle plaid from the new Plaid Tidings DSP – coming on 4 Aug in the Aug – Dec 2020 Mini Catalog!!  Take a look-see:

And here’s our 500th Paper Players challenge badge!

I also pulled a little help for the layout of the smaller “card” on the front of my fun-fold from this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

This is a SUPER easy fun fold, y’all!  It probably looks familiar – cuz I did a similar fold not too long ago, using the Forever Fern Bundle!

For this one, I started with a piece of gorgeous plaid paper from the Plaid Tidings DSP pack that I matted on Misty Moonlight and then adhered to my Bumble Bee card base with Liquid Glue.

I cut a smaller piece of the same plaid and matted it on Misty Moonlight – to make the card front for the small card.

I placed a piece of Whisper White into my Stamparatus and, using the Marker-to-Rubber technique, stamped the Happiest of Birthdays sentiment.  I colored the large letters with my Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Write Marker and used the Pretty Peacock Marker for the small letters.

I used a Stitched Rectangle Die that was the right width – but too long – to cut the sentiment.  I made it smaller by running the cut thru my die cutting machine a second time.  The video shows how to do that – way easier than words would do!  You can scroll thru to about the 14 minute mark! 🙂

I used Liquid Glue to adhere a small strip of Bumble Bee plaid from Plaid Tidings to the bottom of the sentiment, then popped the whole thing onto the small card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a single Bumble Bee 2020-2021 In Color Enamel Dot – and the small card front was done.

For the inside, I matted another strip of the Bumble Bee Plaid Tidings DSP on Misty Moonlight and then adhered it to a Whisper White panel.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Misty Moonlight mat and into the small Bumble Bee card base – then I adhered that whole little card to the larger card base – offset to the left – with Liquid Glue – and the fun-fold card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another fun sentiment from Happiest of Birthdays on the front – in Pretty Peacock ink…

…and more of the blue-toned Plaid Tidings DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  The Happiest of Birthdays stamp set is perfect for clean-and-simple cards – the big bold sentiments really do all the work!  It’s also handy to have a cute sentiment for those SO FEW times you MIGHT be a little-bit-late with a card! 😉

And – Stampin’ Up! heard us when we asked for MORE PLAID!!  The new Plaid Tidings DSP is gorgeous!!

I hope you like!

In the same vein – a catalog share gives you a chance to try a sample of all the new products in the catalog – and then you can see what you love and go back and purchase full packs of those goodies!
