Stampin’ Up! Fabulous Dressed to Impress for the Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Good morning, y’all – welcome to another edition of Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team blog hop!  Each month we make projects centered around a theme – and this month our theme is For the Girls/Ladies!  We can interpret that any way we want – so…be sure to check and see everyone’s projects – we’ve got a bunch of talented ladies hopping with us this month!

I went a pretty obvious route with this one – and pulled out my Dressed to Impress bundle – plus the uber-gorgeous Best Dressed DSP.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from the sketch side of this week’s FUSION challenge.

And – I played along with the Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge – across the top and down the right side, too!!

This one is super simple so…buckle up!

I started off by matting some Best Dressed DSP on Petal Pink for the card front.

Then I cut the largest Stitched Shapes circle die from a piece of Whisper White and embossed it in the Ornate Florals 3D Embossing Folder.

I matted the circle on a Petal Pink scalloped circle (largest scalloped die in the Layering Circles dies).  Then I adhered the whole thing to the card front with Liquid Glue.

On a piece of Whisper White – I stamped the Dressed to Impress lipstick image three times in Tuxedo Black.  Using the coordinating die in the All Dressed Up die set, I cut them all out.

Using my Petal Pink and Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Blends Combos, I colored the images, then adhered them to the card front with Liquid Glue.  Yes.  I am old.  If I was young and all hip and stuff, I’d have used my Pretty Peacock blends for the lipstick color!! 😉

I stamped the word “fabulous” – from Dressed to Impress – in Tuxedo Black on Whisper White and cut it with the label die in the All Dressed Up set.

Then I stamped “Hello” in Lovely Lipstick and fussy cut the word.

I popped the sentiment label over the lipsticks with Stampin’ Dimensionals and then adhered the fussy cut word with Liquid Glue.

A single Rhinestone Basic Jewel on the sentiment finished off the card front.

On the inside, I stamped a Dressed to Impress sentiment in Tuxedo Black on Whisper White.  I added the smaller swath image in stamped-off-once Lovely Lipstick.  Across the bottom, I added a Petal Pink-matted strip of Best Dressed DSP.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Petal Pink mat and into my Pretty Peacock card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Dressed to Impress lipsticks on the front…

…and more of the pretty Best Dressed DSP on the envelope flap.

Et voila!  I love love love this Best Dressed DSP, don’t you?  It’s just so darned pretty!  And it’s wonderful when combined with the Dressed to Impress stamp set and bundled All Dressed Up dies!

I hope you like!

And – not for nuthin….Mother’s Day IS coming up! 😉

Stampin’ Up! THANK YOU THANK YOU EFHARISTO!

Good morning again, y’all!  I just wanted to send a quick….

Yesterday was a big day for me.  I’d gotten the UPS text the day prior saying to expect something from Morris Meetings – they’re our travel agency for SU! Incentive Trips!

So…I was on pins-and-needles.  And…of course…it was the day UPS didn’t deliver until after 8pm.  I’d actually decided they were going to skip me and make me wait another day!

But then….the text came and Finny and I were on the way to the gate!

Not gonna lie – did a little happy-dance when I pulled it out of the bag!

I pushed that golf cart to the limit – yes, we sped along at the high rate of 3 mph! – and got back to the house lickety split.  Figured it would be nice for Wayne and I to open it together!  Considering…

Lookee what was inside…

And THAT contained a really nice leather wallet – with lots of room for business cards and credit cards and probably even our passports!

 

Inside was our flight information – we leave on 3 July (Wayne was like…wait, what?? – that’s like…SOON!) and will be home on the 14th.  We’ve got a few days planned with Amy and her family in Rome ahead of the cruise (and our Russian son Igor will be joining us for that bit!).  We also found our name tags and holders – which are handy for holding our Royal Caribbean door key (see?  we’re like old-hands now, we know what to expect!).  And leather luggage tags.

And of course – the day-by-day schedule.  When we’re at-sea and when there are SU! meetings (where we’ll get to see the new goodies for the holidays!) and when the parties happen!

That one deserves a little more perusing and ooh-ing and aahing, I think!

Anywho – just wanted to share.  And to say THANK YOU all again!  Stampin’ Up! makes these wonderful incentive trips available for any and all Demonstrators to earn!  I absolutely positively could not have made it without y’all!  I appreciate each and every one of you so much!

As they say in Greece  – efharisto!

TTFN

 

 

 

P.S.  Interested in Joining My Team?  Maybe earning an Incentive Trip of Your Own?  I think you should look into it – even if having a business or earning a trip “isn’t your thing” – the benefits of being a demonstrator are many!  Like…20-25% off everything you buy!  A wonderful Starter Kit filled with SU! products that YOU select – with free shipping and a huge savings to you!  Potential for extra income – could even fund your “habit”! See new catalogs – and get to get new goodies in your hands – before everyone else.  And – of course, no commitment whatsoever!  I welcome hobbyists and business demos alike in the Critters-N-Creatin’ Krew!  Check out the deets right here – and let’s get you started!


HOST CODE FOR 1 JUN – 15 JUN: VXTTY7PW

Use this host code when you order and receive a free gift from me! But, if your order is over $150, please don’t use this code (you’ll miss out on your own Stampin’ Rewards if you use it) but you’ll still get the free gift.

Stampin’ Up! Happiness Surrounds Your Day!

Happy weekend, y’all!  Hope you’ve got something fun planned.

I have a plane flight planned.  Which – is NOT fun.  Not in any way that you slice it.  Tomorrow’ll be a 12 hour day to get back to Atlanta.  Bleh bleh bleh.  But we’ve had a great visit and gotten done all the things we needed to do while I was here.  So – bonus!

But – expectation management:  I will NOT be doing a Facebook live tomorrow – so sorry!  I don’t even land in Atlanta until a little after 5, so…just can’t do it, y’all!  I’ll be back next weekend, I promise!!

Let’s not think about that unpleasantness right now, though, shall we?  Instead, let’s take a look at a card that comes from the second stamp set in the upcoming Snowflake Showcase (available 1 Nov – 30 Nov 18).  This is the Happiness Surrounds stamp set and…it gives a completely different look from the Snow Is Glistening set I used yesterday.  Take a look-see:
