Fun Fold card

Stampin’ Up! A Grand Kid Jar of Flowers Sneak Peek Fun Fold – with a Video Tutorial!

Happy Friday!!  I hope you’ve had an awesome week.  Are you planning to watch the second attempt to launch Space X to the ISS on Saturday – at 1522 Eastern??  I am – and am hoping the weather God’s are more cooperative than they were on Wednesday.  We need to get ourselves back into space!  Also?  The Space X suits and cockpit are super cool and future-istic looking!  Should be exciting!!

If you were able to join me for my YouTube video yesterday – I appreciate you spending some of your day with me!  If not, but you’d like to see the replay…here ’tis!

I used two new-in-the-2020-2021-Annual-Catalog stamp sets for this fun-fold…the A Grand Kid and the Jar of Flowers sets.  Along with some Flowers for Every Season DSP, I ended up with this side-flap tri-fold card.  Take a look-see:

The layout for the front of the card hails from this week’s Tuesday Morning Sketches challenge…

And the flowers and colors work perfectly with the Hand Stamped Sentiments Inspiration challenge!

This fun-fold came to my attention on this week’s SplitCoastStampers Wednesday Tutorial, so I thought I’d give it a go!

I started with a full 8 1/2″ x 11″ piece of Just Jade card stock and scored it with my Paper Trimmer.  Basically – I scored at the half-way mark on both the short and the long sides.  Then I cut out one quadrant of the card stock.

I cut the additional 1/2″ off the third quadrant – and the fun-fold was ready to go!  Easy peasy!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere a striped piece of the new Flowers For Every Season DSP to a Purple Posy mat.

Using Glue Dots to adhere the trim in the back, I wrapped some new gold trim from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo pack three times.

I stamped the pretty floral image from the Jar of Flowers set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and cut it with the largest oval Stitched Shapes Die.  Then I colored it with my Stampin’ Blends in:  Poppy Parade, Daffodil Delight and Flirty Flamingo Combo Packs, Dark Balmy Blue, Dark Purple Posy and Dark Mint Macaron.  Then I popped the oval onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals

I stamped a sentiment from A Grand Kid in Poppy Parade on Whsiper White and cut it with the next-to-smallest rectangle die in the Stitched So Sweetly Die set, then adhered it with Liquid Glue.

I tied a double-length of the gold Forever Greenery trim in a simple bow and adhered it with a Glue Dot.

Finally, I added some Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels and the card front was done.

On the inside flap, I matted another Flowers For Every Season paper on a Purple Posy mat and then onto the flap with Liquid Glue.  A second sentiment from A Grand Kid, in Poppy Parade on Whisper White – cut with the largest label in Stitched So Sweetly – was all the flap needed!

For the inner liner, I stamped Happy Birthday – from A Grand Kid – in Poppy Parade on Whisper White.  I added a Purple Posy-matted piece of the Flowers for Every Season DSP with Liquid Glue.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Purple Posy mat and into the card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another fun sentiment from A Grand Kid in Poppy Parade on the front.  I used my Melon Mambo, Flirty Flamingo and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Write Markers to color the letters…

…and more of the Flowers for Every Season DSP on the envelope flap!

Et Voila!  There’s so much to love about the florals from the Jar of Flowers set – and that’s even WITHOUT using the bundled Jar Punch!  It just makes a project sing….SPRING (or SUMMER!!).  And the A Grand Kid set – a sentiment stamp set – is perfect for Grandparents, but… many of the sentiments are great for non-grands!

And if you want some paper that spans the seasons – look no further than the aptly-named Flowers for Every Season DSP! Poinsettias and pines, sunflowers, daisies, roses….it’s all here!

I hope you like…no…LOVE!  And are making plans to add all of this to your stash at the earliest opportunity!

You can get the whole Jar of Flowers bundle – plus several other great flower-centric products – in my All About the Flowers Special Bundle #3!  Check it out right here!

Finn Fan Fix


There are many reasons that Finn has a love-hate relationship with summer.

He sort of loves the reaction from the mom and dad when he flies around the corner of the house sopping wet when he’s taken a dip in the pond.

And he LOVES being toweled off as a result of said dip.

But.

There’s a dark side to summer.

That moment when you realize that the garage door is going up and your dad is going for a drive.

Without you. 🙁

Cuz – the mom is a 3S – that’s a Super Strict Stickler – about hot cars and dogs.  And her window of “okay for Finn to go” is pretty narrow.

Just in case that photo didn’t tear at your heart….

Resist this.  I dare you.

Ahhh – the betrayal of summer….

Stampin’ Up! World of Good Sneak Peek 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 our amazing Ann this week and it’ll for sure jump-start your creative mojo!  I hope you’ll come and play along.  🙂

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 went – once again – to the wonderful new Beautiful World Bundle – part of the World of Good Suite in the new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.  And…it’s a fun-fold.  Again.

Sorry?

Nope – not sorry.

Take a look-see:

And here’s this week’s Paper Players theme challenge!  Hope you’ll join the fun and show us your projects!  I can’t wait to see what you create!  🙂

I also played along with the Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge – going across the middle row!

I first saw this fun-fold on my friend Karen Ksenazakovic’s blog and decided to try one of my own!

I started by cutting my piece of Early Espresso 8 1/2″ x 11″ card stock as shown in the video.  First I scored it at 5 1/2″ along the long side.  Then I scored it along the short side at 2 1/8″ and 6 3/8″.

Using my Paper Trimmer, I cut out the small rectangles on one side.

Once I folded the card stock, I was left with a tent card that holds a secret “gate card” on the inside!

Next, I adhered some wordly paper from the World of Good Specialty DSP to the front of the card base with Liquid Glue.

I cut a piece of Bumble Bee card stock and embossed it in the Old World Paper 3D Embossing Folder.  With a sponge, I lightly brushed over the raised areas of the card stock with Crumb Cake ink.  Then I tore the edges of the panel and adhered it to the card front, on an angle, with Liquid Glue.

With the die in the World Map Die set (bundled with Beautiful World), I cut out a bunch of North America world dies (there’s also a die with the “other” half of the world) from Crumb Cake and used Liquid Glue to adhere them to a Crumb Cake panel.  Then I used my Trimmer to cut the panel down to the size I wanted – and popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Using SNAIL, I adhered a length of Bumble Bee 2020-2022 In Color 1/4″ Ribbon and a piece of the open-weave ribbon in the new Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack (all this ribbon will be available to you on 3 Jun!!).

Using the dies in the World Map Die set, I cut a Mossy Meadow circle and a detailed globe and adhered them together with Liquid Glue.  I also cut a “stand” from some new Brass Foil (coming 3 Jun), and added it with Liquid Glue, too.  Then I adhered it to the card front.

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

I stamped the Beautiful World sentiment in Mossy Meadow on Bumble Bee card stock and cut it with a die from the Tasteful Labels Die set (3 Jun).  Then I popped it over the bow with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card front was done!

On the inside, I matted two pieces of World of Good Specialty DSP on Bumble Bee and then to the gates with Liquid Glue.

On the All-the-Way-Inside, I stamped a second sentiment from Beautiful World in Mossy Meadow on Whisper White.  Then I added a compass in Crumb Cake over top.  In the corner, I stamped a Mossy Meadow inkwell and Crumb Cake quill.

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got the inkwell and quill on the front…

…and more of the World of Good Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I LOVE this hidden-gate fun fold (I just made that up – I have NO idea if that’s what it’s called!), don’t you??  It’s another great opportunity to showcase our beautiful papers and stamp sets, like this Beautiful World and the bundled World Map Dies, and World of Good Specialty DSP!  This is going to be a go-to Suite when you need a masculine card, I am thinking!

I hope you like!

And I can help you get this stamp set – either now as a new demonstrator (yes, you can select pre-order goodies for your Starter Kit!!) or after 3 June (consider my Online Host Club!!).  Give me a shout!

If you want to recreate this card – all the Stampin’ Up! products you need are listed down below along with the card cuts!

Finn Fan Fix


I give you…Wayne “training” Finn to leave his plate alone after lunch.

Step 1 – place plate on arm of chair…

…ensuring dog sees said plate.

Step 2 – using hand signals, tell dog “leave it”.

Step 3 – analyze dog’s reaction to “leave it” command.

Expert analysis of reaction….uhm….unprintable on a public blog.

Step 4 – assess efficacy of training session.

Expert analysis…epic FAIL. 😉

Better luck next time, Dad!

Stampin’ Up! Flowers For Every Season Sneak Peek Fun Fold With Video Tutorial

Happy Friday!!  I hope you’ve had an awesome week.  And are looking forward to whatever “the weekend” means to you these days! 🙂

If you were able to join me for my YouTube video yesterday – I appreciate you spending some of your day with me!  If not, but you’d like to see the replay…here ’tis!

The new Flowers for Every Season Suite (coming soon – like 3 Jun –  in the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog!) is the DSP that showcases the new 2020-2022 In Colors.  This gorgeous, flower-strewn paper, showcases the new colors perfectly.  I used it – and the coordinating Flowers For Every Season Memories & More Card Pack – to make a super easy fun fold card for you.  Take a look-see:

How pretty is that paper?  Every one of the new In Colors – prefectly blended by the genius Stampin’ Up! designers!

This card is super easy!  I started with a regular 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ card base and scored and folded it at 2 1/8″ and again at 6 3/8″.

Next, I matted two pieces of the Flowers for Every Season DSP on Just Jade card stock (Bumble Bee for the video card) and then adhered them to the gates with Liquid Glue.

I used Memories & More Card Pack elements – matted on Just Jade (or Bumble Bee) – for the panels.  Each panel was cut down to fit.  When I adhered the panels – the top one is adhered on the left-side gate and the bottom sentiment panel is adhered only on the right-hand gate.

I tied a little bow out of the one of the new 2020-2022 In Color RIbbons and adhered it with a Glue Dot.  A 2020-2022 Enamel Dot finished off the card front!

On the inside, I matted a Whisper White panel on the appropriate mat-color and then into the card base with Liquid Glue.  Then I added one of the pretty stickers from the Flowers for Every Season Memories & More Card Pack.  And…that was it for the card.  Easy peasy!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another of the flower stickers on the front…

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

Et Voila!  I love this beautiful Flowers for Every Season DSP – it looks like a wonderful cottage garden – a new one on every sheet!  And the Memories & More Card Pack (not just for scrapbooking!) is amazing – chock-a-block full of designs in small and large formats, flower, leaves and sentiment stickers, and sentiments!!  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern Sneak Peek with Video Tutorial

Happy Friday!!  Hope it’s been a good week for you.  I’ve been busy with the pre-order and doing a lot of ooohing and aaahing over all the new pretties!  And putting shares together for you – look for those to be announced tomorrow.  And pulling retired product off the shelves to “make room”.  And deciding to open up a new Host Club in June to help y’all get all the fun new things I know you want – check that out down below.  Ordering catalogs and checking my mailing list. Yes – busy busy!!

If you were able to join me for my YouTube video yesterday (one of the highlights of my week!) – I appreciate you spending some of your day with me!  If not, but you’d like to see the replay…here ’tis!

This is a set you maybe (probably?!) haven’t seen before? Yep – it’s brand spanking new and it’s part of the Forever Greenery Suite in the new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog, which you can get your hands on on 3 Jun!  The stamp set, called Forever Fern, is bundled with one of the coolest die sets ever – the Forever Flourishing Die set.  And the Forever Greenery DSP is…stunning!  I also grabbed a cool stitched circle die from the new Tasteful Labels die set. Take a look-see (the card on the right is the one we made in the video!):

I’m playing along with this week’s Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.

 

This is a fun-fold that I saw on a SplitCoast Stampers tutorial, from the talented Kelly Atcheson.  I thought it was cool, so I made one myself!

I started with a piece of new Just Jade, cut to 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ for the card base.  Then I embossed a Whisper White panel in one of the new Greenery Embossing Folders (this is a 2-folder pack, available in the Forever Greenery Suite on 3 Jun).  These are small folders – so I ran the panel thru the die cutting and embossing machine twice to get the whole thing embossed.

I adhered the panel to the card front with Liquid Glue. Note: on the video, I cut this panel at 4″ x 5 1/4″ and matted in on Shaded Spruce before adhering it to the card front).

The small flap is really just a small tent card – I cut a Just Jade piece at 3 1/4″ x 8 1/2″, scored and folded it at 4 1/4″ and then adhered the back of the note card to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I matted a beautiful piece of the new Forever Greenery DSP on a Shaded Spruce panel and adhered it to the front of the flap with Liquid Glue.

Using two of the spectacular dies in the Forever Flourishing Dies, I cut a large leaf in Shaded Spruce and a slightly smaller one in Pear Pizzazz. Before I cut the leaves, I spritzed the card stock lightly with water using my Stampin’ Spritzer.  I adhered the leaves to the front of the flap-card with Liquid Glue.

There’s another cool new product in this Suite, called the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack.  One of the two trims in the pack is a gold twine/thread.  I tied a large-ish bow with that gold trim and adhered it to the flap front with a Glue Dot.

I stamped the Forever Fern sentiment in Shaded Spruce on a piece of Whisper White and cut it out with the larger circle die in the Tasteful Labels die set.  This cool set – coming on 3 Jun – is bundled with the Tasteful Touches stamp set.

I popped the sentiment over the gold bow with Stampin’ Dimensionals – added a Just Jade 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dot (coming on 3 Jun) – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped a large leaf in Shaded Spruce and smaller leaf image in Pear Pizzazz – both in the Forever Fern set.  On the video card – I also added a sentiment in Shaded Spruce!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Shaded Spruce mat and into the small card base – and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Forever Ferns leaves on the front…

…and more of the Forever Greenery DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila! Okay – just get ready, cuz you’re going to hear this a lot in the next few weeks.  Ready?  I think this Forever Fern bundle and the whole Forever Greenery Suite is absolutely going to be my favorite in the new catalog.  It is simply stunning!!  And you KNOW how much I love die cut leaves – and this Forever Flourishing Die set is chock-a-block full of beautiful leaf dies!!

I hope you like. No!  I hope you LOVEEEEEE it as much as I do.  And cannot WAIT to get it for yourself! Psst – I can make that happen for you – just join my team right now and pick this for your Starter Kit.  And then get the rest of the pre-order goodies – right away, no waiting until 3 June! – with a 20% discount.

New Online Host Club Beginning in June!

What is an Online Host Club?

Well – besides helping you to build your crafting tool chest a little at a time, a club also lets you get host benefits – without actually HOSTING a workshop!

A club consists of three folks doing two consecutive three-month terms.   Each person commits to buying $50 before shipping and tax each month.

Here’s how it shakes out…this is just an example!  As you can see, each member gets to host TWICE during the six months!!

At the end of the club, I let each member select a stamp set up to $25 that I send to them for free.

What are the other bennies of a Host Club?

  • At least a $150.00 Workshop order during EACH of your host months!
  • Which means you’ll have at least $15.00 of Stampin’ Rewards dollars to spend on the exclusive Host Stamp Sets, or any other current Stampin’ Up! product during your host months.  Stampin’ Rewards are Stampin’ Up!-speak for “free money”!
  • You’ll earn DOUBLE PEPPERMINTS on your Host Club Orders.  Each $50 order earns 4 reward points, a $75 order earns you 6 reward points, etc. You’ll earn at least 24 reward points during your membership, meaning you’ll automatically earn at least ONE $40 Peppermint rewards gift!  (Remember – when you gather up 16 Peppermints, you get to select a free reward gift valued up to $40!).  You can get more info about my Punkin’ Heads Customer Rewards Program right here.
  • You’ll receive a FREE monthly tutorial with 4-5 projects and access to all previous tutorials for the duration of the club. Right now, there are over FORTY tutorials available only to Online Host Club members.  That’s around TWO HUNDRED not-seen-on-our-blogs projects for you to use as inspiration (and they ALL have all the card cuts and instructions!)
  • FREE catalogs during your membership term
  • FREE shipping in your Host Months
  • A FREE STAMP SET of your choice valued up to $25 at the end of each “term”, any current set (excluding host sets)!
  • At the end of the full 6 months, you’ll get first dibs at signing up for the next 6 month term!

When you join the club – you’ll commit to the full six months – in two consecutive three-month increments.   Not only will that help you gather up 2020-2021 Annual Catalog goodies – it’ll put you in a perfect position for the 2020 Jul – Dec Mini Catalog (previously known as the Holiday Mini!!).

Don’t delay – there are limited spaces available!

If you want to join us or if you have ANY questions about how it would work…please give me a holler!

Finn Fan Fix


Today is about flowers.  A particular flower.

Finn likes flowers.  Roses in particular.

Well – he might, you don’t know!! 😉

I planted a rose in a pot a while back – in March.  We bought it at Sam’s.  Along with some lilacs and the raspberries and blueberries.

Sam’s – it’s not just for toilet paper anymore.  Or…at all, actually! 😉

So – when I planted it on 22 Mar, I took a picture of the package so that when it started to die (my expectations of my ability to actually grow a rose….low) I’d at least know what to Google.

I picked it cuz it said “very fragrant”.  Scientific, I know.

Well.  I didn’t kill it!  In fact…..this is what I found on 14 April!  A baby rose!!

So I kept watching – peering at the leaves each morning and evening waiting for signs of the impending demise of my Pink Peace Hybrid Tea Rose with its Magnificent, Very Fragrant blooms of deep, dusky pink on long stems.  And…leathery foliage.

But no….five days ago….

And then – three days ago….

 

And then, yesterday, it happened!

I GREW A ROSE!!! A Pink Peace one!!

And…guess what!??

It really IS magnificent and VERY FRAGRANT! And – I’m pretty sure it has leathery foliage, too! 😉

Boom!

Stampin’ Up! Good Morning Magnolia Fun Fold with Video Tutorial

Happy Friday!!  Hope it’s been a good week for you. We’re just doing the self-isolation/quarantine thing…how about you?  Besides card making – what fun things are you doing to keep yourself busy (and sane!) as we head into the 765th weekend of The COVID-19 Crisis??

If you were able to join me for my YouTube video – I appreciate you spending some of your day with me!  If not, but you’d like to see the replay…here ’tis!

As you can see from the photo above – this card is based on the wonderful Magnolia Lane Suite – the Good Morning Magnolia bundle (with the Magnolia Memories Die set) and gorgeous Magnolia Lane DSP!  I created a fun-fold that looks a lot like an envelope so…that’s what I’m calling it!  Take a look-see:

The layout – that I turned into a fun-fold! – was inspired by this week’s Tuesday Morning Sketches challenge.

I started with a 5 1/2″ x 11″ piece of Mossy Meadow cardstock that I scored and folded at 2 5/8″ and again at 6 7/8″ for the card base.

On the smaller panel, I measured and marked the half-way point (2 3/4″) and used my Paper Trimmer to cut the point.

.

I used the same technique (measure half-way down the long side and cut to the point) to create the Petal Pink mat (2 1/2″ x 5 1/4″) and the Magnolia Lane DSP (2 3/8″ x 4 7/8″) panel.  Note – this part of the card is at about the 7:35 mark in the video! 🙂

Then I adhered the pieces together and to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I adhered a different design of the DSP to a larger Petal Pink mat and then to the larger panel on the front.

For the sentiment, I inked the Good Morning Magnolia sentiment in Versamark Ink and stamped it on a piece of Basic Black card stock. I sprinkled it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat set it with my Heat Tool.  When it was cool, I cut it out with a Stitched So Sweetly label die.

Using the small flower die in the Magnolia Memories Die set – I cut a magnolia blossom from one of the designs in the Magnolia Lane DSP.  I used the leaves dies to cut three Mossy Meadow leaves.

Using Liquid Glue – I adhered the flower to the sentiment label and the leaves to the underside of the label.

I used Black Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the sentiment to the point of the envelope fold – being sure to leave room for my ribbon to slide through to create my closure.

I added some Pearl Basic Jewels to the label – and the card front was done!

For the inside, I stamped the small flower from Good Morning Magnolia in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a Whisper White panel.  I colored the bloom with my Petal Pink and Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blends Combo.  Then I added a sentiment in Mossy Meadow.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Petal Pink mat and into my card base – and the card was done!

I slid a length of ribbon (either Petal Pink 5/16″ Organdy Striped Ribbon or the linen ribbon from the Magnolia Lane Ribbon Combo Pack – which is retiring and on sale!!) under the label and tied a bow to create the closure for the card.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another Good Morning Magnolia blossom on the front…

…and some more Magnolia Lane DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This is a super easy fold – once you know the dimensions for the pointy flap, right?  I love how it lets you showcase some gorgeous DSP like the Retiring-soon Magnolia Lane paper (and – it’s got a GREAT price right now)!  I hope you like!

And I’m SO happy that the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set and coordinating Magnolia Memories Dies are carrying over!

Do remember, though – that the BUNDLE pricing (with its 10% Savings) WILL go away when this catalog ends.  You’ll have to purchase the stamp set and dies separately in the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog!

Just sayin’….

Some days?  The quarantining is just…too much for a guy.  The humans need too much attention.  Too much love.  Too much…everything.

And you have to go sit out in a clearing by yourself and watch the birds and bugs.  And maybe a deer.  A little Me time.

Just for a bit.

Stampin’ Up! Best Catch 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 nice, open sketch challenge from the talented Laurie this week and it’ll for sure jump-start your creative mojo!  I hope you’ll come and play along.  🙂

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!

Today is Wayne’s birthday so I made him a card!  And, since he’s a fisherman and…a guy!…a fun-fold with a fishing theme seemed like the way to go.  It ended up being kind of an homage to several wonderful retiring goodies – including the Best Catch stamp set and bundled Catch of the Day die set.  Take a look-see:

And here’s this week’s Paper Players CAS challenge!  Hope you’ll join the fun and show us your projects!  I can’t wait to see what you create!  🙂

I also played along with the TGIF Challenge this week!

I started with a piece of Night of Navy card stock that I embossed in the High Seas 3D Embossing Folder (yes – this is RETIRING, so…get it quick!).  Then I matted it on a piece of Soft Suede for the card front.

The accordian fold is 4 1/4″ x 9″.  I colored the “sky” with my Balmy Blue Stampin’ Blends Combo and the ground with my Crumb Cake Combo.  Then, using the little “gravel” image in the Best Catch set, I stamped all over the “ground” in Soft Suede.  I stamped the image two or three times without re-inking.

Next, I scored the panel with my Simply Scored tool at 1″, 2″, 4″ and 6″.  I burnished the folds – starting with a “mountain” at 1″ and then valley (2″), mountain (4″) and valley (6″).

On the third panel, in Night of Navy ink, I stamped a sentiment from Best Catch.  Then I adhered the folded panel to a Soft Suede mat and onto the card front with Liquid Glue.

On a piece of Whisper White – I made a big ole splotch of Old Olive using my Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Combo.  I just used both blends to scribble a big enough “background” to cut three of the grass dies in the Catch of the Day set.  While I had it out, I also cut four of them from the Old Olive color in the Perennial Essence Vellum (Retiring).

I colored all the tops of the cattails with the Dark Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blend.

The Best Catch bass is stamped in Soft Suede on Whisper White and cut with the matching Catch of the Day die. Then I colored it with my Old Olive, Calypso Coral and Early Espresso Watercolor Pencils.

Finally, I stamped the fisher-dude in Soft Suede, and cut him with his die.  He’s also colored with the Watercolor Pencils.  His little “water” swirly is colored with the Balmy Blue Blends.

Using Liquid Glue (or Glue Dots for the vellum grasses), I adhered the pieces on various panels – being sure to not interfere with the folds!  I nestled the bass in and amongst some grass…and used my Soft Suede Stampin’ Write Marker to hand-draw a few birds in the corner.

The final piece is the sentiment.  It’s a word cut with the Well Written Dies (yep – also retiring!).  I cut three of them in Night of Navy and adhered them in a stack with Liquid Glue.  Then I adhered just the first part of the sentiment to the first panel.  and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a second sentiment (this one is from the Bonanza Buddies stamp set – which is retiring, too!) in Night of Navy to a Whisper White panel.  I colored some “shore” at the bottom of the panel and stamped the creel in Soft Suede and a hat in Crumb Cake.  I lightly colored both images with my Light Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blend and the Early Espresso Watercolor Pencil.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Soft Suede mat and into my Night of Navy card base, and to adhere the card front and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more shoreline and Best Catch fishing gear on the front…

…and I added a little Come Sail Away DSP (you guessed it….going away!) on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  So – this card – with it’s Best Catch, Catch of the Day, Bonanza Buddies, Well Written, Come Sail Away DSP, Perennial Essence Vellum and High Seas 3D Embossing Folder (whew!) – is a true memoriam to some wonderful products that will be gone-baby-gone SOON!  So – if you don’t have them in your stash, you need to remedy that right away!  Remember – while the stamps will for sure be around thru the end of the catalog – ALL the rest is “while supplies last”.  So…tarry not!

Stampin’ Up! Best Catch Video Tutorial Sneak Peek

‘Sup, y’all!?  Well – our first day back “open” looked a lot (to us) like the previous day “closed”.  I have zero intention of doing much different any time soon.

Well, I mean except for the three massages, hair cut and tattoo I have scheduled for this afternoon! 😉

Just kidding.

It’s only two massages.

Really – totally kidding.  But I DO rather desperately need a haircut…

Since none of that’s really going to happen, I’ll be planning to go live tonight at 7pm Eastern on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page!  We’re going to make a fun fun-fold card and decorate it up with the Best Catch bundle.  Which is retiring.  In fact, the whole card is kind of an homage to the retiring list!  Take a sneaky peek!

It’s a fun one that I think you’ll enjoy – so I hope you’ll be able to join me!

Tonight.  7pm Eastern.  Right here.

If you were able to join me for my YouTube video – I appreciate you spending some of your day with me!  If not, but you’d like to see the replay…here ’tis!

The card I made was heavily inspired by a card I saw on one of the SU! Demonstrator FB pages, created by June Dunn.  She thought way outside the box and saw…a hephalump’s badonkadonk in….the (Retiring) Honey Bee stamp set with the matching Detailed Bee Dies.  And it was adorable.  So…I made one of my own. Take a look-see:

I turned mine into a gate card fun fold and played along with the TGIF Challenge this week!

So…gate cards are seriously easy.  But they LOOK like they might be tricky – making your awesomeness-quotient very high when you give one of these to someone! 😉  Hang tight – here we go!

I started with a Smoky Slate card base at 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ and used my Simply Scored tool to score along the long side at 2 1/8″ and 6 3/8″.  Then I folded inwards at both score lines.  Boom.  Gate card.  Made.

I matted two pieces of Blushing Bride paper from the Subtles 6″ x 6″ DSP on Blushing Bride card stock and adhered them to the outside of each gate with Liquid Glue.

For the bellyband, I used a 1″ wide piece of Blushing Bride card stock – about 10″ long.  I wrapped it around the card, securing it in the front with Liquid Glue.

I cut the second-to-largest Stitched So Sweetly rectangle die in Whisper White and stamped a sentiment from the Honey Bee set in Blushing Bride.  Then I adhered it to the belly band with Liquid Glue.

I used my Stamparatus to stamp the Honey Bee hive (or skep…) in Basic Gray three times.  One of them, I cut with the die in the Detailed Bee set – that’s the badonkadonk.

The other two, I punched with the smooth-sided heart die from the (carrying over!) Heart Punch Pack.   From the third one, I fussy cut a “trunk”.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the trunk and ears (that were hearts just a hot second ago!) to the Stitched So Sweetly panel.  I popped the bee hive – which is now a hiney! – on with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 🙂

I cut a tiny flower from a scrap of Peaceful Poppies DSP using the little die from the Garden Gateway Dies (also carrying over – yeah!) and adhered it to the end of the trunk with Liquid Glue.

I made a little tassel from some Silver Metallic Thread and adhered it to…uh,hmmm…with a Glue Dot.  I tied a teensy bow from Whisper White Solid Baker’s Twine and added it with another Glue Dot.

Two Champagne Rhinestone Jewels – one on the bow and one on the flower – finished off the belly band (which is, really, the card front!).

On the inside, I stamped a second Honey Bee sentiment in Blushing Bride on a Whisper White panel.  I added the two flower images in Basic Gray – and colored the flowers with my Dark Petal Pink Stampin’ Blend.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Blushing Bride mat and into the card base – and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Honey Bee flowers on the front…

…and a little more Subtles 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  How to make an elephant out of a bee hive.  Cool, huh?  The Honey Bee stamp set and matching Detailed Bee Dies are so sweet – and this will be your last opportunity to snap them up!

I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Sparkly Ornate Garden with a 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 challenge from the talented Anne Marie this week and it’ll for sure jump-start your creative mojo!  I hope you’ll come and play along.  🙂

If you were able to join us yesterday for our Ornate Garden FB Event and watched my video live, I appreciate you spending some of your weekend with us – and hope you had a good time!  If you didn’t see the live version, but you’d like to see the replay on YouTube…here ’tis!

Now – y’all know that clean-and-simple isn’t really my thing.  Also – when I looked at the challenge badge – I might have missed the “clean-and-simple” words.  Oops? 😉  So my Ornate Garden DSP is a little busier than might be considered truly clean and simple. But – the fun fold is fun – and easy!  And the Ornate Layers die cuts and Ornate Thanks sentiments work great.  Take a look-see:

And here’s this week’s Paper Players CAS challenge!  Hope you’ll join the fun and show us your projects!  I can’t wait to see what you create!  🙂

 

This fun fold is one I shamelessly CASE’d from my friend Karen Ksenzakovic – check her card out here!

There are essentially two cards here.  The larger card base is 5 1/2″ x 10″ – scored and folded at 4 1/4″ and 8 1/2″.  The smaller card is 3″ x 7″ – scored and folded at 3 1/2″.

I started with a piece of Gold Glimmer paper and cut the Ornate Layers die cut frame from it.  Next, I used a Stitched Rectangle Die to cut a piece from the center of my Ornate Garden DSP – handily, the dies in the Stitched Rectangles work VERY nicely with the Ornate Layers dies!

I adhered the DSP panel (the one with the rectangle cut out) to a Crushed Curry mat and then to the front of the larger card.

I adhered the Gold Glimmer Ornate Layers die cut over the “hole”.  Finally, I added the Stitched Rectangle that I’d cut from the DSP.

I matted an Old Olive strip of the DSP to a Crushed Curry mat and then to the shorter panel of the larger card.

I folded the small card and, using Liquid Glue on about an 1″ of the back of the small card (near the folded edge) I adhered it to the smaller panel of the main card.

I matted two small pieces of Whisper White on Crushed Curry.  Using the flourish corner image in the Ornate Style set, I stamped the four corners of each panel in Old Olive.

On the front panel, I stamped the Ornate Thanks sentiment in Terracotta Tile.  Then I masked the sentiment and added the sweet little daisy over top in Old Olive.  I lightly colored the daisy with my Light So Saffron Stampin’ Blend.

The inside panel got a second sentiment in Terracotta Tile – then I adhered it inside the smaller card with Liquid Glue.

I wrapped a length of Old Olive ribbon from the Ornate Garden Ribbon Combo Pack around BOTH cards – then popped the little card front onto the little card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  The card front sort of “captures” the ribbon….

For the inside of the larger card – I added the corner flourishes again in Old Olive on a Whsiper White panel.  Then I added a larger Ornate Thanks sentiment in Terracotta Tile and two smaller sentiments in Crushed Curry.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Crushed Curry mat and into the inside of the larger card.

I tied the ribbon in a bow – added a Gilded Gem to the front of the smaller card – and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Old Olive corner flourishes on the front…

…and more of the Ornate Garden DSP on the envelope flap!

Et Voila!  This is a really easy fun fold – it’s harder to describe than it is to do, I promise! 🙂  I am loving this new Ornate Garden Suite – especially the Ornate Thanks stamp set with it’s multitude of wonderful sentiment phrase combinations!!  And the gorgeous paper…don’t miss the beautiful foiled designs!  I hope you like and will be adding this entire Suite to your stash!

Finn Fan Fix


I’ve shown some pictures of Finn in his kennel – quite a few of them, actually, cuz he looks pretty cute in there sometimes!

I think some folks may think his kennel is something he dislikes.  Or is like…a cage.

Okay – it IS a cage – I mean…come on.  Kennel = cage. 😉

But – the Finn-ster grew up with a kennel as his bedroom.

And…he STILL thinks of it as his bedroom.  I know this because…

There he is several days ago – just chillin’ in his room.  That’s where I found him when I went in to change after getting off the dreadmill in the morning.

Two days ago – been up a few hours and….tired again!

I’ve actually left him out a few nights (thinking he ought to know how to sleep NOT in his room) – and…yep.  He’s right in there in the morning!

All of which means that if we ever travel with him…something like his bedroom has to go with us.

Handy.
