Finn Fan Fix

Well – while we went to the movie today, Finn went to Doggy Camp for the first time in a bit.

They’d missed him!  And were pretty impressed with how spry and happy he is given…everything! 🙂

I can tell you there’s no memory lapse about camp in the Man.  He went cray cray in the back seat when we made that final turn – just like always!

I could tell he’d had a great day.

Only 7:15 – and he was sacked plumb out!

A tired Aussie is one who had a Big Day at Camp!! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Varied Vases In Color Fun-Fold Thanks!

Mornin’, y’all!  Friday rolled around again!  Love how it does that, don’t you?

I decided to do another fun-fold for you today – one of those ones that looks totally cool (and completely “hard”) but is just a few extra folds and cuts.

This one uses the Varied Vases bundle and the new 2018-2020 In Colors – including the new Designer Series Paper in Lovely Lipstick!  With the addition of a perfectly perfect sentiment from the All Things Thanks stamp set – take a look-see:

My color scheme is from The Paper Players color challenge this week.

I started with a 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ piece of Thick Whsiper White card stock for the card base.  Score and fold it at 2 1/8″ from each short end.

Boom.  Gate Fold!

I matted two pieces of Lovely Lipstick DSP from the new 2018-2020 DSP on some Pineapple Punch card stock for the two front panels and adhered them with Liquid Glue.

The art and sentiment is on a piece of Whisper White card stock, also matted on Pineapple Punch.   I used my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig (still time to get you one of these if you haven’t!) to position and stamp the sentiment from the All Things Thanks set in Call Me Clover.

The vases from Varied Vases are all stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  This is a photopolymer set – so it’s easy to line everything up!  I added Tuxedo Black flowers and colored them with my Grapefruit Grove, Pineapple Punch and Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Write Markers.

I stamped a few more Tuxedo Black vases on the Lovely Lipstick DSP and fussy cut them – then I popped them over the stamped vases with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I tied a tiny Linen Thread bow and adhered it with a dab of Liquid Glue.  And – that was it for the card front.

On the inside, I added a Whisper White panel matted on Pineapple Punch.  It’s got a Call Me Clover sentiment from Varied Vases and a couple more vases on the bottom.

I made a quick belly band of Whisper White – just cut a strip 2 1/4″ wide and long enough to wrap around the closed card.  Adhere the ends together with some Liquid Glue (or your could use Tear & Tape Adhesive).  Then I used Liquid Glue to adhere the card front to the bellyband and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got a couple more Varied Vases on the front…

…and I added some more of the Lovely Lipstick DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Easy Peasy Nice and Squeezy!  Varied Vases is absolutely one of my fave new bundles (the Vases Builder Punch is so cool!) and I am tickled that we’ve got the Designer Series Paper back in the In Colors!  Hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix

So – Finn sort of abdicated his spot to Wilbur today.

But first – I wanted to let y’all know that Finn made the Animal Medical Clinic of Fairburn’s FB page!  Check it out here – and give them some love (ie: Like!)!  They saved his Finny-life!

Now.

Wilbur is making it pretty darned clear that he’s 1) not wild and 2) pretty sure he wants to be a Deatherage.

Check it

.

 

See him?

He’s inside a little “house” that he’s created under a carriage in our barn shed-row.  Right behind the horses.  It’s pretty close quarters (no wild pig is going in there) – and he gets all snuggled down and pig-snores….

I’ve started giving him handful of horse feed when I feed the horses.

We feed family.

Right? 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Poem Easel Card for the Stamp Ink Paper #150

Good morning, y’all!  It’s Tuesday so time for another Stamp Ink Paper challenge for you to play along with!  This week it’s all about the fun-fold!

One of my favorite fun-folds is the Easel Card.  I like it cuz it’s so easy to make that it’s sort of ridiculous – but the wow-factor is high!  For this one, I jumped both feet right back into my wheelhouse and went with the Nature’s Poem DSP and the Rooted in Nature bundle, which includes the Nature’s Roots Framelits.  Take a look-see:

As I mentioned, our SIP #150 challenge this week is Fancy (or Fun!) Folds!  Come on over and play!

And – since the front of an easel card is just the front of a card ( 😉 ) I used the sketch from FabFriday to give me a hand!

I started with a piece of the Soft Suede patterned paper from the Nature’s Poem DSP.  Using the new Big Shot Embossing Mats (coming on 1 June), I embossed a few leaves across the front with the dies in the Nature’s Roots Framelits.  These mats are fun – and they make a wonderful impression!

See what I did there?! 🙂

I matted my embossed paper on a Blackberry Bliss mat for the card front.  The middle layer is another Blackberry Bliss-matted strip of the Nature’s Poem DSP, adhered with Liquid Glue to the card front.

I wrapped some Linen Thread around the card front a few times and tied a simple knot in the front.

My sentiment, from the Rooted in Nature stamp set (1 June) is stamped in Blackberry Bliss on Very Vanilla – then I fussy cut each of the phrases individually and adhered them to the DSP strip with Liquid Glue.

Using the leaves in the Rooted in Nature set, I stamped a few on Very Vanilla in Blackberry Bliss.  The large leaf is stamped-off-once.  For the smaller cluster, I stamped the image twice without re-inking.  Then I cut out all three images with their matching dies in the Nature’s Roots Framelits!

I tucked my leaves under the little Linen Thread knot, using Liquid Glue to adhere them.  Then I tied a small double-thread bow and adhered it with a scrunched up Glue Dot.

My card base is a Soft Suede panel, 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored and folded at 5 1/2″ and again at 8 3/8″.  I adhered the bottom portion of my card front to the bottom-portion of the card base with Liquid Glue.  If you’d like a video, here’s a link to another easel card I made. 🙂

On the inside, I matted the Nature’s Poem DSP on a Blackberry Bliss panel and adhered it inside the card with Liquid Glue.  I stamped the sentiment from Rooted in Nature in Blackberry Bliss on a small piece of Very Vanilla and matted that on Blackberry Bliss, too.  Over the sentiment, I added a leaf in stamped-off-once Blackberry Bliss.

To create the “easel stop”, I popped the sentiment on Stampin’ Dimensionals and placed it on the inner liner so that when I prop the card front up, it “looks right”.  You can see about where the placement ought to be, yes?

And that was it for the card!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got more of the Rooted in Nature leaves on the front – I inked the image in Blackberry Bliss and then stamped it multiple times without re-inking…

…and I added more the leaf-strewn Nature’s Poem DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila! I guess you can see why I love this fun-fold so much, huh?  With just an additional score-and-fold, you get WOW!  And, of course, the Nature’s Poem suite is certainly one of my favorite-est favorites in the new catalog!  So much to do with Rooted in Nature – and being able to cut the images so quickly and simply (not to mention the embossing dies!!) with the Nature’s Roots Framelits…well.  That’s just the icing on the cake!

Sorry – didn’t have a good tree phrase!  Hope you like!

P.S.  Be sure to check out my 2018 New and In-Color Special Bundles!  They’re a great deal and a super way to get all the new beauties in your stash! 🙂

Finn Fan Fix

You guys, with my business growing, I’ve hired a Personal Assistant.

I’ll need y’all to communicate with me solely thru him, okay?

This is important.

I’m too busy.

I need him to be my gate-keeper.- and he lays ready to jump to fulfill my every need.

Hmm…well.  Thumbs might help…

I’m not gonna lie – I hired him for his good looks.  Everyone likes a hunk in the office, yes??  Not very PC, but there you have it. 😉

Stampin’ Up! “Impossible” Springtime Stroll Video Sneak Peek

Mornin’, peeps!  Happy Mother’s Day to all the mom’s out there!  Including my own!

Yesterday was…busy.  First took the Man to the vet for his “Wellness” check.  On the way, the “Low Tire Pressure” warning came on – again.  It’s been doing that for a couple of weeks and I’ve been putting air in it and hoping it would go away.

No.  Hope is not a valid plan.

But – since I have to drive to Huntsville on Tuesday, I figured it was time to fish or cut bait.  Which meant…sit and wait at the tire place while they checked to see if it could be repaired or if it would need to be replaced.

It was a long afternoon.  But – on a brighter note – there was a roofing nail in the tire and they patched it.  So that was good news!

Anyway – tonight we’ll do a Facebook Live video – and we’re going to make a cool fun-fold card (I think you’re going to like it!)

Please make note – we’re going to be Live at 7pm Eastern (that’s an hour earlier than usual!) so I can attend our monthly team meeting at 8!  We’re going to use one of the fun new Host-exclusive sets and some of my fave Garden Impressions DSP.  Take a sneaky-peek:

Our Stamp Ink Paper challenge #143 is a theme this week – hope you’ll come play along! Continue reading

The card that I gave you a sneak peek of on Sunday is a pop-and-twist fun fold card.  It uses the Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set and some of the too-fun Picture Perfect Party DSP.  It’s a party in paper and card stock!  Take a look-see:

Of course, the funnest part of this card comes when you open it! Continue reading

Stampin’ Up! Hanging Garden Charming Cafe for Stamp Ink Paper #136

Happy Tuesday, y’all – and welcome to another Stamp Ink Paper challenge!  

We were playing with a theme this week – called Cabin Fever.  As I thought of what to do for y’all to embody this theme – my eye fell upon the growing stack of seed catalogs that come this time of year!  And I knew – vegetables!  This is the time of year when it’s still too cold to start those gardens – but we want to – so badly!! I don’t have a set filled with tomato, pepper and squash plants – so, I pulled out a couple of pretty stamp sets that embody the beauty of flowers (and the butterflies that flock to them!) in Spring – Hanging Garden and the Charming Cafe bundle. Take a look-see:

As I mentioned, the Stamp Ink Paper Challenge #136 this week is all about Cabin Fever.  What makes you itch to get outside before Winter is even over?  Come and play along, won’t you?!  The winners this month will be in the running to be a Guest Designer on our challenge! 🙂 Continue reading
