Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Birthday Soft Spring Sneak Peek

Well.  It’s Saturday.  And this post is coming to you from HOME!  Whoo-hooo! And I’ll be headed back north today for Amy’s going away lunch.

Whoo-hoo??  “Yeah” cuz I get to see our team – but… sad emoji that Amy is leaving.  They’re moving to New Jersey.  I’m really truly trying to be happy and excited for their new adventure.  Really.

You’d think we got together every week for coffee or something.  With the exception of our quarterly in-person meetings, our interaction is almost exclusively online and on the phone.  Which won’t change.

But… 🙁 🙁 🙁

I have our Cruise and the trip to Maui next year to look forward to – so…trying to be all positive and stuff.

The struggle is real, people!

So – let’s stop all this false positiveness and get to something I can legitimately be excited about, shall we?  With each new catalog there are Host-Exclusive sets – these can only be purchased using Stampin’ Rewards!  To earn Stampin’ Rewards – you have a workshop or submit an individual order with a retail value over $150!  And then – assuming you’ve done that after 4 June…you might pick one of the host sets from the new 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.

OR – you COULD join my team right this very second – and pick this set – called Soft Spring! – to help fill-out your Starter Kit.  🙂 Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from this week’s Mojo Monday sketch.

I started with a piece of new 2019-2021 In Color 6″ x 6″ DSP in Pretty Peacock and matted it on Mint Macaron for the card front.   Look at that – and all the wonderful designs – on the new papers!

On a piece of Whisper White, I used my Stamparatus to stamp the pretty flower image from Soft Spring in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  Using the fill-image stamps, I added leaves in Mint Macaron and flowers in Pineapple Punch.

I matted the panel on Mint Macaron and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

Around the entire panel, I wrapped a piece of Mint Macaron 1/4″ Textile Ribbon (new in the upcoming catalog), securing it in the back with Glue Dots.

I pulled out the Itty Bitty Birthdays stamp set – carrying over! – and stamped the sentiment in Pretty Peacock on a bannerized strip of Whisper White.  Then I popped the sentiment onto the ribbon and card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a few Pineapple Punch Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots around the flowers and one on the sentiment – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I used the Stamparatus again to add a second flower image from the Soft Spring set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the corner of a Whisper White panel.  I filled in the flowers in Pineapple Punch and the leaves in Mint Macaron.  These are very painterly, aren’t they?!?  For a more formal stay-inside-the-lines look – use your Stampin’ Write Markers to fill in the images! 🙂

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Mint Macaron mat and into my Pineapple Punch card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more of the Soft Spring image on the front in Tuxedo Black, Pineapple Punch and Mint Macaron…

…and some more Pretty Peacock 2019-2021 In Color 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Oh my goodness, y’all!  HOW beautiful is this Soft Spring Host-exclusive stamp set?!?  All images – no sentiments.  Just all sorts of spring-y gorgeousness!  And the new In Color 6″ x 6″ DSP?  Yes, please!!  Hope you like! 🙂

Be sure to get signed up for my Catalog Shares – and get some of this pretty paper in all the new colors for yourself!

Stampin’ Up! Life is Grand Garden Lane Sneak Peek

Hey, y’all!  Hope your week is going well as we climb the crest of the hill to Hawwmp Day!

I’m busily making cards ahead in anticipation of packing up soon to start the car-stuffing process!  I’ve almost got enough to make it thru the weekend when I’ll have a chance of having my stamping room back in order!

I might outta stop buying more Stampin’ Up!, huh?  I mean – my rental’s not a semi truck!! 😉

The card I made for you today inks up another new goody from the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog – the Verdant Garden stamp set…and pairs it with a retiring set called Life is Grand.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one comes from the CAS(E) This Sketch challenge this week.

I started with a piece of Mint Macaron card stock and stamped the first image from Garden Lane in Mint Macaron in all four corners.  Then I added the second image in Mossy Meadow.  It’s a photopolymer set – so it’s easy to line up!

Then I matted the panel on Petal Pink for the card front.

I used my Stamparatus to make the sentiment, inking the Life is Grand image in Mossy Meadow and stamping it on a piece of Whisper White.  Then I cut it out with an Oval Layering Framelit.  I also cut a slightly larger scalloped oval from Petal Pink and adhered them together with Liquid.  Then I popped them onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

From a piece of printed Vellum in the Magnolia Lane Memories & More Card Pack, I fussy cut a few leaves.  Then I adhered one under the popped-up oval and one to the oval with Liquid Glue.  I stuck one of the pretty magnolia flower stickers from the Card Pack on, too.

I used the Mossy Meadow Linen Thread from the Magnolia Lane Ribbon Combo Pack to make a double-loop bow, which I adhered with a Glue Dot.  Over the top I added a double-length simple bow of Old Olive Linen Thread.  A Rhinestone Basic Jewel finished off the card front.

On the inside, I added a second Life Is Grand sentiment in Mossy Meadow to a Whisper White panel.  In the corner I added the Verdant Garden vine image in Mossy Meadow, filling in the leaves with a Light Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blend.  Over it, I adhered another flower from the Magnolia Lane Memories & More Card Pack and then popped on a Rhinestone Basic Jewel by the sentiment.

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more of the Verdant Garden vine in Mossy Meadow and Mint Macaron – as well as a Magnolia Lane Memories & More Card Pack flower…

…and I used a coordinating design from the Garden Lane DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila! Garden Lane is lovely in many shades of green – and lends so perfectly to pairing with the complementary Magnolia Lane suite!  This pair is going to be a huge hit when the catalog goes live on 4 June!  I hope you like – and are warming up your snap-it-up-quick fingers! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Best Catch For You, Dad!

Whoo-hooo!!  It’s Friday again! Happy happy joy joy!

My card today is one of those elusive “masculine” cards.  We all sort of have trouble with those, don’t we?  We like flowers and embellishments and “pretty” colors, right?  But, we don’t usually think of those things when we think of making a card for the dudes in our lives.  So it’s happy that Stampin’ Up! listened and brought us the Best Catch stamp set – handily bundled with the great Catch of the Day Framelits.  And – I added those elements to…Floral Romance Specialty DSP – and made a perfectly masculine card.

Say what??

Take a look-see:
