Stampin’ Up! Timeworn Nature’s Harvest Sending Healing Thoughts

Happy happy HAAWMMP Day!  It’s downhill from here, y’all!  And…we’ve got good stuff happening on the weekend – can you say…World Card Making Day!?  Yep – we’re going to be hosting a FB Live Event with card demos and prizes and all sorts of fun!  Watch for more info as we get closer!

I’ve got a pretty card from the retreat for you today – this one was from Cindy Blaine and it uses some of my favorite things from the Jul – Dec 2021 Mini Catalog – the Nature’s Harvest Bundle, Cork Specialty Paper and…the Timeworn 3D Embossing Folder.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Harvest on Timeworn Black!

Good Tuesday to you all!  Hope the week is going well – and if you were impacted by Ida – that it was as minimal as possible.  We’re looking for rain today – hard to say how much.  But we’re ready!  By which I mean I have a LOT of towels by the back door – cuz the Finn-ster LOVES running around in the rain! 🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️

My card today is one I made while crafting with friends on my Zoom the Craftroom yesterday – which was fun!  I used the Nature’s Harvest bundle (which you can get for FREE if you join the team during Sale-a-Bration!) with the Timeworn 3D Embossing Folder.  Take a look-see:

I picked the Nature’s Harvest set to work with based on the Just Add Ink challenge.

I started with a piece of Basic Black cardstock that I embossed in the Timeworn 3D Embossing Folder and matted on Bumble Bee for the card front.

Next I used my Blending Brushes to add REALLY un-blended splotches of Pumpkin Pie and Cinnamon Cider ink on pieces of Cinnamon Cider and Bumble Bee card stock. Serious – it looked bad! 😉

But then, I used the dies in the Harvest Die set (bundled with the Nature’s Harvest stamp set) to cut a wildflower and grasses from the blotchy Bumble Bee piece and a single coneflower from the blotchy Cinnamon Cider panel.  And all of a sudden – those blotchy panels became beautiful!

I also cut two “branches” from some gorgeous Gold Shimmer Vellum.

Using Liquid Glue, I adhered the flowers and grasses and branches to the card front.

I used my Dark Cinnamon Cider Stampin’ Blend to color a pretty long length of Whisper White 1/4″ Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon (this is a REALLY cool thing you can do – and it means you can have ALMOST any color of ribbon you need!).

I looped the ribbon four times around my hand and then used a piece of Basic Black twine from the Baker’s Twine Essentials Pack to tie a bow around the middle – making a bow-on-top-of-a-sort-of-double-loop-bow bow!

I adhered the bow in place with Liquid Glue.

Using my Stamparatus, I stamped the Nature’s Harvest sentiment in Cinnamon Cider on Bumble Bee and cut it with the longer label die in the Harvest Die set.

I used double-stacked Black Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the sentiment label over the ribbon, added some Bumble Bee Matte Decorative Dots and the card front was done.

On the inside, I inked the splotch image from Nature’s Harvest with Pumpkin Pie ink, stamped it off once on scrap paper and then stamped it in the corner of a Very Vanilla panel.  I stamped the small floral from the set over the top in Cinnamon Cider.

I used Stampin’ Seal to adhere the panel to a Bumble Bee mat and into my Cinnamon Cider card base, popped the card front on with Black Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got the splotch and floral on the front…

…and again on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I am SO grateful to the Just Add Ink designers for giving me another reason to pull out one of my favorite things – the Nature’s Harvest Bundle!  I love the Harvest Dies so much – and the sentiments in the stamp set are wonderful!  The gorgeous Timeworn 3D Embossing Folder comes thru again – adding perfect texture behind the die cuts.  And…don’t they just…GLOW against their black backdrop!?

I hope you like!

Sometimes when horses sleep in stalls and lay down to rest, they’ll roll over too close to the stall wall.  Most of the time, they can extricate themselves and get back up.

But – sometimes – they don’t.  They’re stuck until a human comes to help them back up.

We call that…getting “cast”.

And when a 1000 pound horse does it – it’s scary.  They can panic and injure themselves.  And getting them up takes some tact and skill to get them out of the mess they got themselves into.

When an 85 pound Aussie sleeps too close to the side of the kennel….

…it looks a LOT like he’s “cast”.

But…

….Nope.  Just sleepin’ here, Mom.  Not ready to get up, either, so….move along! 😉

Stampin’ Up! Healing Hugs and Angled Plaid Tidings

Good morning!  As you read this, I’m hopefully not even up yet!  ROFL!

Like THAT’LL happen!  I’ll be waking up on the beach on Pawley’s Island – and getting ready for the rehearsal dinner tonight.  Then tomorrow is the Big Day!

Like anyone would, I brought my Mealthy Multi-pot so we can have breakfast at the house – I have plans for steel cut oatmeal today with all the extras and Stuffed French Toast with Blueberries tomorrow!  Yum!!

Oh – in case you’re wondering – this is a calories-don’t-count weekend.  I enacted an Executive Order…

So – card!  I used the Healing Hugs stamp set to make a pretty Get Well card – and I combined it with some Plaid Tidings!  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! So Sentimental Positive Thoughts for Healing

MikemikemikemikeMIKE!!  Guess what day it ISSSSSSS???!

Yep.  You got it.  It’s HAWWWMP DAY!!! 🙂

And – for HAWWMP Day, I’ve got an elegant get well card.  Which seems sort of apropos these days, huh?

I started with the Breathtaking Bouquet background stamp, then added some So Sentimental and Positive Thoughts sentiments and images.  And I used their matching dies, too!  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from this week’s Sunday Stamps challenge.

The color palette hails from the TGIF color challenge.

And – I’m also playing along with the Global-Design-Project theme…

…and – finally! – the Word Week challenge at Just Us Girls.

I started by creating the background with the beautiful Breathtaking Bouquet background stamp.  Using my Stamparatus, I stamped the image in Versamark Ink, then I sprinkled it with Black Shimmer Embossing Powder and heated it with my Heat Tool.

I cut the panel down to my finished card front size and adhered it to an Old Olive mat with Liquid Glue.

I stamped and embossed the image again on another piece of Whisper White, then I fussy cut the large middle rose.  Using my Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Blends Combo, I colored the image – being careful to avoid the embossed portions of the image as much as possible.

I wrapped a piece of Black 1/2″ Satin Ribbon around the card front, securing it in the back with Glue Dots.

Then I popped the fussy cut flower on to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Using my Stamparatus, I used the Marker-to-Rubber technique to color and stamp the So Sentimental sentiment with my Old Olive and Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Write Markers.  Then I cut the sentiment with one of the smaller labels in the Stitched So Sweetly Die set.

I used a Dimensional and some Liquid Glue to adhere the sentiment to the card front.

I tied a little bit of metallic thread around the Satin Ribbon where I wanted my bow – which drew the ribbon up a little.  When I adhered a bow tied with the same ribbon over the thread (with a Glue Dot) – it helped to make it look more “real” and less….”faux”! 🙂

Using the Nature’s Thoughts Die set, I cut some Old Olive leaves and Lovely Lipstick butterflies.  I tucked the leaves under the fussy cut rose and sentiment and added the butterflies, all with Liquid Glue.  A few green gems from the Noble Peacock Rhinestone pack finished off the front of the card.

On the inside, I used the leaf image from Positive Thoughts to stamp a few times in Old Olive on a Whisper White panel – stamping a couple of times without re-inking.  Then I added a couple of Lovely Lipstick butterflies flitting here and there!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to an Old Olive mat and into my Basic Black card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Positive Thoughts leaves and butterflies on the front…

…and a few more on the envelope flap, too.

Et Voila!  How gorgeous is that Breathtaking Bouquet stamp?!  Especially embossed in Shimmer Black.  I am such a fan of the Positive Thoughts stamp set and the Coordinating Product Nature’s Thoughts Dies – LOVE them.  And speaking of loving…So Sentimental and the awe-mazing Stitched So Sweetly Dies.  Hello?!?  Those dies are so useful – they’ll be your go-to, I promise!  I hope you like!

After I turned the girls out the other day, I headed back in to clean the barn.

And discovered my billy goat just hanging out on the outdoor storage box.

No.  I have no idea why.  Totally volunteered.  🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️

Stampin’ Up! Sweetly Sentimental Lily for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hey y’all – it’s Thursday, so it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!!  Today’s a color challenge – 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 pulled out my gorgeous Lily Impressions DSP (which, OBTW – you can get for FREE in the Sale-A-Bration flyer with a $50 purchase) and paired it up with (also FREE) the matching Lovely Lily stamp stamp set ($50 level reward) and Lily Pad Dies ($100 level reward).   To those pretty images, I added a So Sentimental sentiment on a Stitched So Sweetly die cut label.  Take a look-see:

Here’s our color palette!

And – since a good sketch challenge is a great way to get some inspiration, I borrowed mine from this week’s Tuesday Morning Sketches!

It also fits perfectly with the photo inspiration from the Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge!

I started with a mostly-Bermuda Bay piece of the Lily Impressions DSP that I embossed in the Stone 3D Embossing Folder (also FREE during Sale-A-Bration, bundled with the Power of Hope stamp set!) and matted it on Basic Black for the card front.

Using my Stitched Shapes dies, I cut two squares from another design in the pack and adhered them with Liquid Glue.

From a third design – mostly in Lovely Lipstick – I cut a Stitched So Sweetly rectangle and adhered it with Liquid Glue.

With an Oval Stitched Shapes die, I cut a Basic Black oval, embossed it in the Stone 3D Folder and popped it onto the card front with Black Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The sentiment, from the So Sentimental set, is stamped in Bermuda Bay on Whisper White and cut with another label die from Stitched So Sweetly.

I cut two short lengths of Granny Apple Green 1/2″ Textured Weave Ribbon and used a couple of Glue Dots to adhere them to the black oval.  Then I popped the sentiment on with Black Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Then it was time to pull out the Lovely Lily stamp set and it’s matching Lily Pad Dies. HINT:  the Lovely Lily stamp set is a photopolymer REVERSIBLE set.  Which means that one side of the stamp is the detailed side – and you just have to flip it over on your block to stamp the “fill” image!  Cool, huh? 🙂

I created a flower by stamping the small flower detailed image in Lovely Lipstick on some of the Lovely Lipstick Lily Impressions DSP and cutting it with the die in the Lily Pad Die set.  I used a second die to cut a detailed flower from Lovely Lipstick card stock.  Finally – I made a leaf by stamping the leaf in Granny Apple Green on Granny Apple Green card stock and cutting it out.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the three pieces together to form the flower!

Before adhering the flower to the card front – I wound some Whisper White Solid Baker’s Twine around my hand several times and twisted it into a figure eight.  Then I used Glue Dots to adhere it to the card front.

Then I used Liquid Glue and a couple of Black Dimensionals to adhere the flower over top.

A single Granny Apple Green Glitter Enamel Dot finished off the card front!

On the inside, I first stamped the detailed flower image in Lovely Lipstick in the corner of a Whisper White panel.  I cleaned the stamp and turned it over, inked the “solid” side in Lovely Lipstick and stamped it one time on my scrap paper.  Then I stamped it into the flower image for the “fill”.   I made a sticky note mask by cutting the flower die from the top of a sticky note – and laid it over top.  Then I stamped the detailed lily pad image in full strength Granny Apple Green and the fill in stamped-off-once Granny Apple Green.

Phew – that was a LOT of words for 4 stamps, huh??  🙂

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Basic Black mat and into my Granny Apple Green card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another flower and lily pad on the front…

And a bit more Lily Impressions DSP on the envelope flap!

Et Voila!  The So Sentimental stamp set and bundled Stitched So Sweetly dies are a wonderful complement to the Lovely Lily images, Lily Pad die cut flowers and beautiful Lily Impressions DSP, don’t you think?  And – it doesn’t hurt that all the Lily goodies are FREE during Sale-A-Bration!  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Back on Your Feet in a Tropical Oasis

Well.  It’s happened again.  It’s Friday!  Whoo-hooo!!  Hope you’ve got a good weekend coming up.

Just a PSA – today is the LAST DAY to “cash” in on my Double Peppermints Ordering Special.  Don’t miss out, okay?  That is all.

A friend of mine recently took a spill and, in a split-second decision, opted to land on her knee instead of her noggin.  Which – while a good plan in the big scheme of things, still HURT like crazy!  So – I needed a good-for-a-smile get well card.  I think the images in Back on Your Feet are just the thing, don’t you?  And I put my guy in the Tropics – courtesy of the new Tropical Oasis Suite.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from this week’s CAS(E) This Sketch challenge – although I cheated the sentiment placement…

I started with some Tropical Oasis DSP – I think this one is leading the pack for my fave new DSP!! – that I matted on Terracotta Tile for the card front.  Then I took a second design and matted it on Terracotta Tile to create the DSP strip.

For the art, I used my Stamparatus to stamp the too-cute sloth in Soft Suede ink on Whisper White.  I colored the image with my Soft Suede and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Combos.  I used a Blender Pen to pick up ink from the lid of my Terracotta Tile ink pad to color the bandage.

I added “ouch” in Terracotta TIle, then matted the panel and popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I used some SNAIL to adhere two pieces of Terracotta Tile 1/2″ Scalloped Linen Ribbon.

On Whisper White, I stamped the small flower and the leaf from Timeless Tropical in Soft Suede.  I colored the flower with my Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends Combo – and my Blender Pen with Terracotta TIle.  The leaf is colored with the Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Combo.  I cut them with their dies in the Timeless Tropical Dies.

I sponged some Old Olive on a piece of Pear Pizzazz and then cut three of the leaves in the Timeless Tropical dies.

Then I built the collage.

I popped the large leaf on with a Stampin’ Dimensional.  Next, I made a double-loop with some Linen Thread – twisted it into a figure-8 and adhered it with a Glue Dot.  Then I added the flower with a Dimensional.  I tucked the leaves in here and there with Liquid Glue.

I finished with a Terracotta Tile Faceted Gem (annual catalog) in the middle of the flower and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped a second Back on Your Feet sentiment in Terracotta Tile on a Whisper White panel.  In the corner, I stamped the small flower in Soft Suede.  I also stamped the image on a sticky note and fussy cut it to create a mask.  I covered the flower on the panel with the mask and added the leaf a few times.  The images are colored just like I did on the front – and I added another Terracotta Tile Faceted Dot.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Terracotta Tile mat and into my Soft Suede card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another flower and leaves on the front…

…and a little more Tropical Oasis DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I feel pretty sure this will bring a smile, which is always the point of a get-well card, right?  The cute images and sweet sentiments in Back on Your Feet are punny-ly fun and yet convey that we care!  And Tropical Oasis – the Timeless Tropical stamp set, In the Tropics dies and Tropical Oasis DSP…well.  This is fast becoming my favorite suite in the 2020 Jan-Jun Mini Catalog!  I hope you like!

HOST CODE FOR 1 JAN – 15 JAN: B3JD39GG

Use this host code when you order $50 or greater and receive a free gift from me!  If your order is over $150, please do not use this code, but you’ll still get the free gift.  The free gift is your choice of any item valued up to $10.00 in any active Catalog!  That includes some of the Host Exclusive stamp sets!  See my Rewards page for full details.

**Please note: Due to an increased number of orders that I’ve recently been receiving that have been in the $10-$20 range, I’ve had to change my host code reward to include only orders of $50+.  Unfortunately, it’s not fair to those who are ordering $50+ and there are not enough host $$ generated from orders under $50 to cover the $10 gifts.  Therefore, I won’t be able to continue to offer that bonus on every order.  Thanks for your understanding!

Stamps-N-Lingers 2020 Jan – Jun Mini Catalog Special Bundles Available

As you’ve come to expect, I’ve gathered up some goodies from the new Suites (and beyond!) in the 2020 January – June Mini Catalog that coordinate perfectly with each other and will get you well on the way to making great cards and projects!

I spent some time curating these NINE bundles for you to choose from.  Like your own Personal Shopper.  When you order them, you’ll save around 10-15% off ordering everything yourself!  And every Special Bundle includes a FREE GIFT! 🙂

And – since it’s Sale-A-Bration EVERY bundle will get a couple of Sale-A-Bration Rewards.  The more bundles you order – the more rewards you’ll earn.  Heck – choose a couple three and get the retail cost over $300 (not YOUR cost – the RETAIL cost!) and you’ll receive the totes-adorbs Little Ladybug FREE!

Winner Winner!

Check all the bundles out right here on my Special Bundles Page – then use the handy form at the end to get your order placed!

NOTE:  At the bottom of the form is a spot for you to put your choices for your Sale-A-Bration freebies.  Please prioritize your favorites from first thru sixth choice (and select “Unspecified Choice” for the remainder, okay?)  I’ll order them when I place your order – and will get as many of them for you as I can!  Winner-Winner- better than a chicken DINNER!!  If you’ve got questions on how to fill out the form – give me a holler!

But – this is a LIMITED TIME OFFER – so….don’t wait too long!

Finn Fan Fix


Finn has a bit of a…Licker….problem.  In that – he can’t hold his licker. 😉

He has no control when it comes to anything that might contain a whiff, trace or smidge of food.

He doesn’t even care what that food is…steak…salmon…broccoli…

But – every licker-holic needs an enabler.

I present…the Deatherage Enabler.

I combined this totes-adorbs FREE Host set with some pretty Best Dressed 6″ x 6″ DSP (coming on 4 Jan in the 2020 Jan-Jun Mini catalog) and a cute little sentiment from the Back On Your Feet set (in the Annual Catalog).  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Sending You Thoughts Sneak Peek on Feels Like Frost

Happy Friday, y’all!  Another weekend is upon us – and…for us…more rain!  Which has some goodness to it – we’ve all but eliminated the severe/extreme drought we had earlier this year, so that’s good!  Hope whatever you’ve got planned for the weekend will have good weather!

My card today is a combination of Sneak Peek – of the Sending You Thoughts stamp set from the 2020 Sale-A-Bration flyer – and beautiful DSP from the 2019 Holiday Catalog – the Feels Like Frost Specialty DSP.  I brought them together to create a clean-and-simple Get Well card.  Take a look-see:
