Stampin’ Up! Brilliant Wings and a Welcoming Window Fun Fold with Video Tutorial

Good morning and happy Friday!  Sale-A-Bration is SOOO close to being over!  If there are still some of the free goodies you’re wanting – now’s the time!  And – if you’ve given any thought at all to joining the SU! team – THIS is an awesome time to do it!  The wonderful Starter Kit PLUS 200 FREE sheets of brand new Designer Series Paper!  Check out all the benefits of joining right here – then give me a holler and let’s get you hooked up! 🙂

I’ve also got my Butterfly Bouquet Special Bundle – with some add-ons! – available for you to order.  Check it out down below! 🙂

On to the business at hand! If you were able to join me for my YouTube live yesterday, I appreciate you spending part of your day with me.  If not, here’s the replay!

I made an “impossible” card for you on this one – yep, it’s literally called an Impossible Fold.  But it’s totally possible! 🙂  My friend and teammate, Terry Lynn Bright, made one the other day and shared it on her site – and made me remember how much I like this fold!  For this particular one, I took the opportunity to showcase some new Butterfly Bijou 6″ x 6″ DSP and the stunning Brilliant Wings dies – both coming next week (and available to order with me right now in a money-saving bundle!).  Welcoming Windows provided a sentiment and some pretty florals.  Take a look-see:

The color palette is from the Color Throwdown challenge this week!

I started with a piece of Calypso Coral paper from the Butterfly Bijou DSP pack and adhered it to a Blushing Bride base with Liquid Glue.  That’s the base of the card right there!

Next, I made the Impossible Fold from a 4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of Bermuda Bay cardstock (I used Misty Moonlight in the video!).  I scored it and cut as shown on the video and this template…

By holding the left side of the cut cardstock and “twisting” the right side, I created the actual fold.  It’s easier to see what the heck I’m talking about on the video! 🙂

Using my Stampin’ Trimmer again, I cut two 2 1/2″ x 3 7/8″ pieces of non-directional (meaning it doesn’t matter how to use them – there’s no right-side-up or down – which means both these cuts are identical) Butterfly Bijou DSP according to this template.

 

I adhered my L-shaped pieces to the card front with Liquid Glue.

The sentiment, from the Welcoming Window stamp set, is stamped in Magenta Madness on the right side of a piece of Basic White cardstock.  Then I added the little fluer-de-do corner in Bermuda Bay.  I adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I used a Magenta Madness and Blushing Bride butterfly cut from a piece of Butterfly Bijou 6″ x 6″ DSP with the large die in the Brilliant Wings die set.  It’s adhered to the sentiment panel with Liquid Glue.  Tip – be sure that it’s high enough that the bottom of the wing doesn’t interfere with the pop-up sentiment panel.

I cut a Vellum cardstock butterfly with one of the detailed dies in Brilliant Wings and adhered it with my Fine Tip Glue Pen.

Finally – I colored two Pearl Basic Jewels with my Dark Bermuda Bay Stampin’ Blend and added them to the sentiment panel.

On the back, I stamped the vase from Welcoming Window in Calypso Coral on a Basic White panel.  Then I added the leaves image in Bermuda Bay and the flowers in Magenta Madness.  The fleur-de-doo corner is there in Bermuda Bay.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Bermuda Bay mat and onto the back of the card base and the card was done.

My Basic White Medium Envelope got the Welcoming Window floral arrangement and the fleur-de-do on the front…

…and more of the Butterfly Bijou 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  How fun is this fold?!?  It looks – literally! – impossible, but…now you know that it is not!  The new Butterfly Bouquet with it’s wunnermus Brilliant Wings die set is a perfect choice – and will let you do all sorts of color combinations!  In the video – I replaced Bermuda Bay with Misty Moonlight…

Cool, cool paper, y’all!  And the fact that the dies cut the butterflies right from the DSP is…amazeballs!!

I also love the sweet florals and sentiments in the Welcoming Window stamp set, don’t you??

I hope you like!!

My lap is a pretty popular spot in the evening.

Katy wants on – Finn wants on….

Sometimes Katy lets Finn sit right by her so she can rub her face on his face.  Sometimes he licks her ear.

Other times – they just agree to not even look at each other, and just watch a little television.

Family life!

Stampin’ Up! Paper In Blooms Fun Fold 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 theme 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 decided to play with the In Bloom Bundle and the coordinating Paper Blooms DSP (this is from the Sale-A-Bration catalog and is FREE with a $50 purchase – but ONLY thru 28 Feb when SAB ends!) to create a super easy fun-fold.  Take a look-see:

And – the fun fold wasn’t an accident! 😉

I also played along with the TGIF challenge this week!

And I played along with the Tic-Tac-Toe challenge, too! I went across the middle!

This is a super easy fun fold – which is why I love it!

I started with a striped piece of Paper Blooms DSP that I matted on Petal Pink cardstock, then adhered to a piece of Night of Navy – so the card front and card base was all done! 🙂

I cut a smaller piece of Night of Navy to make the little front card.

I matted another design of Paper Blooms DSP to a Petal Pink mat and adhered it to the front of the small card.  Then I adhered the card to the center of my cardbase with Liquid Glue.

Next, I used the dies in the bundled Pierced Blooms Die set to cut a couple of flowers from one of the Paper Blooms DSP papers.

I also used the dies – there are a LOT of them and they’re all super fun! – to cut some Petal Pink, Seaside Spray and Night of Navy flowers and leaves.

On a piece of Basic White, I stamped the sentiment from In Bloom in Night of Navy and cut it with the label die in Pierced Blooms.

I started adhering flowers and leaves – starting at the right side of the card front – with Liquid Glue.  Then I added the sentiment.  More leaves and flowers followed on the other side.  I used some Stampin’ Dimensionals as needed to support petals and leaves.  The little striped flower on top is also popped up with Dimensionals.

I added some Night of Navy gems from the Holiday Rhinestones and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a sentiment from Oval Occasions in Night of Navy to a Basic White panel.  In the corner, I added flowers from In Bloom in Petal Pink, Night of Navy and Seaside Spray.  Then I added a few Night of Navy Holiday Rhinestones in the middle of a couple three flowers.

I matted the panel on Petal Pink and then adhered it inside the card with Liquid Glue and my fun-fold was done!

My Basic White Medium Envelope got more In Bloom flowers on the front….

…and a little more Paper Blooms DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  See why I love this fun-fold?  So quick and easy but just enough “different” to get your recipient’s attention!  The In Bloom set – with its bundled Pierced Blooms Dies – is a perfect accompaniment to the pretty Paper Blooms DSP (how cool is it that the dies cut some of the flowers from the DSP!?).

Et Voila!  If you’d like to recreate this card, all the products and card cuts are listed below!  And…be sure to snag some of this Paper Blooms DSP, okay?  It’s gone when Sale-A-Bration ends on the 28th!

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

Stampin’ Up! Touch of Ink Happy Thoughts Fun Fold with Video Tutorial

Good morning! And happy Sunday!  I hope you’re having a great weekend – maybe warming up a bit?  We had a gorgeous day yesterday and it’s looking to be the same today.  Chilly, yes – but bright and beautiful!

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

I was playing with some of the sweet FREE goodies from the 2021 Sale-A-Bration catalog…Touch of Ink (a $100-level freebie) and one of my favorite papers – the Flower & Field DSP (a $50-level choice) and decided to make a fun fold that one of my team members had shared.  He saw it on Connie Stewart’s video and I just went for it!  I added a perfect sentiment from the Happy Thoughts stamp set, too.  Take a look-see:

I decided that a butterfly is an animal….ish…so,  played along with the theme challenge at the Global Design Project!

I created the pop-up fun-fold part of the card using Flirty Flamingo card stock.  It’s a piece cut to 5 1/4″ x 11″ scored at 1 3/4″, 3 1/2″, 5 1/4″ and 7″.  Then I cut between the 3 1/2″ and 5 1/4″ scores – at 1 1/4″ from the top and bottom of the cardstock.

I folded the card at the score lines to create the pop up and a back panel.  The back panel is adhered to a Basic Black mat.

I cut some panels of Flower & Field DSP and adhered them to the Flirty Flamingo base with Liquid Glue.  There’s a smaller – different pattern – piece, matted on Basic Black and then adhered  to the inside small panel.

For the sentiment, I stamped the Touch of Ink sentiment in Flirty Flamingo on a square piece of Basic White cardstock.  In the corner, I stamped the butterfly from Touch of Ink in Smoky Slate and added the wing-fill image in Balmy Blue.  I adhered the panel to a Basic Black mat and then to the pop-up portion of the card base.

I scored and folded a 5″ x 7 1/2″ piece of Basic White at 3 3/4″.  Centered on the front, I stamped a sentiment from Happy Thoughts in Flirty Flamingo.  Hint – you want this to be covered when the card is closed, so…be sure to stamp accordingly!

I flipped the card inside-out so that I could stamp the butterfly from Touch of Ink in the top left corner.  Then I added the flower image in Smoky Slate  – with Flirty Flamingo “fill”.

I adhered the back of the card to a Basic Black mat with Liquid Glue – then adhered it all to another Basic Black “card base”.

On the front of the white card, I added two strips of Basic Black-matted Flower & Field DSP with Liquid Glue.

I punched some flowers from Flower & Field DSP with the Small Bloom Punch – added Smoky Slate middles with an eraser (check the video to see how!) and then adhered them with Liquid Glue.  An Opal Round in the middle of each flower….and the card was done!

My Basic White Medium Envelope got the Touch of Ink flower on the front…

…and more of the pretty Flower & Field DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I can’t tell you how much I love this fold (thanks, Darryl and Connie!) – it really lets gorgeous paper like the Flower & Field DSP shine!  Touch of Ink and Happy Thoughts are perfect together and with this paper, don’t you think??

I hope you like!

Butterfly Bijou 6″ x 6″ DSP add-on:  $10 each

Natural Touch Specialty DSP add-on: $4 each

Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine: $109 each (note: this is the full-size machine and comes with 1 Base Plate, 1 Die Plate, 2 Cutting Plates, and 1 Specialty Plate – so you’ll be able to get to work right away!)

This special will only be available from me at these great discounts until 15 Mar 2021  (or while DSP supplies last!) – so…don’t hesitate!! 🙂

One more note – once you hit “Submit” -it takes a hot second (or twelve!) for the system to do it’s thing.  Be patient – it’ll get there. Once it has – it says “Message Sent – Go Back”.   You can click “Go Back” and that will return you to the Blog Post! 🙂

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! Sweet Strawberry Blessings Fun Fold With Video Tutorial

Happy last day of January, y’all!  And – this is the half-way point for Sale-A-Bration – which means there’s only a month left to join the team and get those extra 200 sheets of Designer Series Paper free! Ask me how to take advantage of this great freebie – AND set yourself up for 20-25% off EVERYTHING you order!  Oh – and you’ll be part of my Critters-N-Creatin’ Krew family, too – which…is pretty awesome!  Even if I DO say so myself.

Which…I totally do! 🙂

So – I’ve got a fun-fold for you today – that will make you think of summer – and I showed 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 pulled out one of my favorite papers – that also just so happens to be a freebie during Sale-A-Bration – the Berry Delightful DSP (that I cut using the Curvy Dies!).  Then I added some flowers and leaves cut with the Strawberry Builder Punch.  And some images and sentiments from the Sweet Strawberry stamp set.  All on a cool fun fold.  Take a look-see:

The layout for the front of the card is inspired by the CAS Colours & Sketches challenge.

And the TGIF challenge was right up my alley!

I started with a piece of Shaded Spruce card stock, cut to 4 1/4″ x 11″ that I scored along the long side at 2 1/4″, 3 5/8″, 7 3/8″ and 8 3/4″.  Then I folded at each score line: 2 1/4″ (valley); 3 5/8″ (mountain); 7 3/8″ (mountain); 8 3/4″ (valley).

I matted two pieces of leafy-green Berry Delightful DSP on Flirty Flamingo and adhered them to the outer panels of the front of the card.

For the front panel, I layered two pieces of the Berry Delightful DSP together and ran them thru the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine with the dotted-curve die from the Curvy Dies in place near the middle.  That gave me four pieces – with two needed for a card front.  If you’re doing the math – that means you can go right ahead and make TWO of these cards lickety split! 🙂

I adhered two of the cut pieces to another piece of Flirty Flamingo and then to the front of the card with Liquid Glue.

The sentiment, from Sweet Strawberry, is stamped in Shaded Spruce on a strip of Basic White.  Then I snipped a banner in one end and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

On another piece of Basic White, I stamped five small flowers from Sweet Strawberry in Flirty Flamingo.  Using the fill-image, I stamped five with full strength Flirty Flamingo and two with stamped-off-once Flirty Flamingo.

Then I stamped three leaves in Shaded Spruce – filling them with Granny Apple Green.  I punched everything out with the Strawberry Builder Punch and curled the flowers lightly with my fingers.

I adhered the leaves with Liquid Glue, then added two flowers.  With a Glue Dot, I adhered a small bow tied with two lengths of White Baker’s Twine from the Snail Mail Twine Combo Pack.  Then I added the third flower with Liquid Glue – and a fourth on top of the bow with a Glue Dot.  The fifth flower is adhered with Liquid Glue at the end of the sentiment strip.

I colored some Rhinestone Basic Jewels with my Dark Mango Melody Stampin’ Blend and added one to each of the flowers – and the card front was done!

For the back, I matted two pieces of plaid Berry Delightful DSP on Flirty Flamingo and adhered them to the side panels.  I added a second Sweet Strawberry sentiment and some flowers and leaves to a Basic White Panel.

The flowers and leaves are in the same colors as the ones on the front.  I colored a medium sized Rhinestone with the Mango Melody blend and adhered it to the larger flower.

 

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Flirty Flamingo mat and onto the back panel and the card was done.

My Basic White Medium Envelope got more Sweet Strawberry flowers and leaves on the front…

…and a little more leafy Berry Delightful DSP on the envelope flap!

Et Voila!  Y’all – there’s no way for me to explain how gorgeous the Berry Delightful DSP is – if you don’t have it – GET IT RIGHT NOW!  Yes – it’s THAT pretty that I have to YELL it!  And – the fact that you can get it for FREE is no small thing. It comes bundled with its own stamp set – called Berry Blessings – and is FREE with a qualifying $100 order during Sale-A-Bration!

Although not bundled together – both the stamp set and the paper (duh!) work perfectly with the Sweet Strawberry Bundle in the Jan – Jun 2021 Mini Catalog!

Et Voila!  I hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix 

The other day – before the current cold-cycle, it was ALL the way in the high 50’s.

Which is WAY too hot for fur-bucket ponies in full winter regalia!

I thought I got a glimpse of Cady coming up from the back pasture – and she looked suspiciously….drippy.

When they came in that evening….

…It became pretty apparent that she’d been ponding. 😉

Like…all the way in.  Based on the look of her – probably rolling in the pond.

It’s just what she does (I’ve seen her in the pond when it was 35!). 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Snailed It Pop Up Fun Fold with Video Tutorial

Good morning and happy Friday!  Hoping that your week went well – and that you’re ready for a weekend.

I’ve got a fun fun-fold for you today and, if you were able to join me for my YouTube live yesterday, I appreciate you spending part of your day with me!  If not, here’s the replay!

Note – my internet did me wrong yesterday (thank you, XFinity) and this ended up being a two-parter.  So – when you hit the end of Part 1 – here’s the link to Part 2! 🙂

I am loving the Snailed It Suite – with the bundled Snail Dies and fun Snail Mail DSP – WAAAAY more than I thought I would when I first saw it in the catalog – it’s just so stinkin’ cute!  And I love a good fun-fold, so…I saw Lisa Curcio’s pop-up card and used her mechanism to create my own using this fun suite.  Take a look-see:

The layout for the front of this card was inspired by this week’s Sunday Stamps challenge.

I started by adhering a piece of Snail Mail DSP to a Bermuda Bay mat for the card front.  Then I used the largest rectangle in the Stitched So Sweetly dies to cut a second design, which I adhered to the card front with Liquid Glue.

On a piece of Basic White, using my Stamparatus, I stamped the cool mushroom (or…are they toadstools?!?) image from Snailed It in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  Then I cut it with the die from the bundled Snail Die set.

I colored the image with my Light Bermuda Bay and Real Red Stampin’ Write Markers, and both of the Daffodil Delight Markers.  Then I popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

For the sentiment, I stamped the word bubble image from Snailed It in Real Red on Basic White – then added the sentiment in Bermuda Bay.  I cut it with the matching die in the Snail Dies and popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside, I used Tear-and-Tape Adhesive to create the 3/4″ x 3/4″ box mechanism that makes the Pop-up part of the pop-up card work!  It started with a 3 1/2″ x 4 1/4″ piece of Real Red, scored at 3/4″, 1 1/2″, 2 1/4″ and 3″ along the shorter side.  Then it’s adhered into the box with the Tear-and-Tape.

I also used Tear-and-Tape to secure it inside the card (this is all in Part 1 of the video!).  Then I used Liquid Glue to adhere a strip of the Snail Mail DSP to the front of the box.

I adhered a Bermuda Bay-matted piece of Snail Mail DSP to the top of the card inside, then added a fussy cut snail from the DSP.

I used a die in the Snail Dies to cut the little pink snail – and fussy cut some shrooms – then adhered them all to the front of the box-mechanism.  I created – if you will – a snail-o-rama…. 😉

I repeated the mushroom image from the front of the card on a Basic White panel, matted it on Bermuda Bay and then into the card.  The card front is also adhered with Liquid Glue.  Some white and red Resin Hearts finished it all off!

My Basic White Medium Envelope got the Snailed It mushrooms on the front…

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

Et Voila!  It’s pretty hard to NOT be loving this Snailed It bundle – with the Snail Dies letting you cut the images straight from the Snail Mail DSP!!  And they’re all just so danged cute!

And – on a fun-fold?!  Yes, please!  I hope you like!

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

Stampin’ Up! Dandy Dragonfly Garden Fun Fold With Video Tutorial

Good morning and happy Friday!  Hoping that your week went well – and that you’re ready for a weekend.  You’ll be fascinated to hear that – in celebration of National Pizza WEEK (yes, that’s a thing – but it ends Saturday so….get to eating!) – we ate sourdough crust pizza last night! And it were yummy!

I’ve got a fun fun-fold for you today and, if you were able to join me for my YouTube live yesterday, I appreciate you spending part of your day with me!  If not, here’s the replay!

I pulled out the Dragonfly Garden Bundle – with the fun Dragonflies Punch – and some Dandy Garden DSP and pulled it all together to create a z-fold card (of sorts).  Take a look-see:

The color palette for this one is from this week’s Paper Players Challenge!

I started with a 5 1/4″ x 11″ piece of cardstock – Blackberry Bliss for the sample card (I used Calypso Coral in the video) – and scored and folded it at 1 3/4″, 5 1/2″ and 9 3/4″ along the long side.

I matted Dandy Garden DSP on Bumble Bee cardstock – using Misty Moonlight paper for two panels and Bumble Bee paper for the center panel.

I adhered all the matted panels to the card base with Liquid Glue.

For the belly band, I gently folded a 1″ x 11″ piece of Blackberry Bliss cardstock (or Calypso Coral) around the folded-up card and adhered the ends together with Liquid Glue on the front of the card.

The sentiment started with a piece of Basic White cardstock that I cut with the third smallest Stitched Rectangle Die.  I ran it again thru the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine, this time with one of the new Stitched With Whimsy dies in the middle.

I stamped the middle of the sentiment label with the Dragonfly Garden sentiment in Misty Moonlight (Mossy Meadow in the video) and then stamped the wunnermus wildflower image three times over the top in Bumble Bee.  Then I adhered it to the middle of the belly band with Liquid Glue.

I punched a dragonfly from the Dandy Garden DSP (Blackberry Bliss or Calypso Coral) using the Dragonflies Punch.  I gently curled the wings and adhered it with Liquid Glue.  Then I used the punch to punch Blackberry Bliss (or Calypso Coral) small dragonflies and adhered them as well.  Those got a swipe with my Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush.

For the inside, I stamped the Dragonfly Garden wildflowers image twice in Bumble Bee on the bottom of a Basic White panel.  Then I added the little “swarm” image in Blackberry Bliss (Calypso Coral in the video).

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

My Basic White Medium Envelope got the Dragonfly Garden wildflowers and “swarm” on the front…

…and more Dandy Garden DSP on the envelope flap!

Et Voila!  Love love love the Dandy Garden Suite, don’t you?  From the Dragonfly Garden stamp set with it’s perfectly fun Dragonflies Punch

…to the gorgeous Dandy Garden DSP

….it’s a winner!  I hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix 

In the evenings, when the horses come in, we tell Finn to “go to your spot”.

His spot is a dog bed.  Wherever the dog bed is – so…it moves around some.

But – it’s still his spot and he goes there to watch over the pony parade as they come in!

He’ll usually lay down – with blinky blinking around his neck! – for at least the start of the event.

But…as they get closer – sometimes he has to sit up – just to be sure they see him.

Just double checking that I’m there and won’t let one of the mean girls get him! 😉

To be clear – they aren’t ACTUALLY mean and I won’t let them get him!
