Happy Birthday

Stampin’ Up! CAS Christmas Scottie & Go To Greetings with Aspens & Leaf Fall

Happy Monday, y’all!  We had a wonderful evening with our friends last night – good pizza and good dessert, good company and good conversation!  Feels like it had been a long time since we’d been together.  No tiny human was in attendance – but…we made do with just us big ‘uns!! 🙂

My card today is my specialty – Clean and Simple.

Bwahahahahaha!!!  You know THAT’S a half-truth.  Quarter truth?!  Hardly any truth at all???  😉

But – I hope you’ll like it anyway.  For the most part, I try hard to keep the number of stamp sets, dies, embossing folders, etc to a minimum but…I NEEDED all the products that I used – on this card – plus the super-wonderful Leaf Fall 3D Embossing Folder.   Christmas Scottie was a big player on the front and inside of the card.  And…the wunnermus Aspen Tree Dies are pivotal to the design, with Go To Greetings bringing the front sentiment.  Take a look-see:

My card today is one that I made a little bit ago for my friend’s birthday – and held it back so that she wouldn’t see it.  But – she’s been eating the chocolate chocolate chip banana bread I sent, so…the cat is out of the bag! This one uses the Rings of Love DSP and the coordinating Ringed with Nature stamp set, the Charming Sentiment Bundle and two a la carte goodies – the Rugged Icons Dies and Twigs & Sprigs 3D Embossing Folder and Die.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Sunkissed Let’s Set Sail Sunset CAS Birthday Card

Happy Happy Hawwwmp Day, y’all!  How goes your week?!  Can you believe that we’re almost all the way thru July?  Where the heck is the year going, anyway!? Yikes!!

So – even though it feels like Christmas is GALLOPING towards us – I did NOT do another Christmas card today.  Instead – I went back to my fave place – the islands!  I pulled out the Sunkissed set and got a little tiny bit of help from the Let’s Set Sail stamp set, too.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Very Best Occasions & Countless Trees Birthday with a Video Tutorial

Hey, y’all – hope your weekend is going well! Are you Alabamians enjoying your Sales Tax Holiday? 🙂

When I first saw the Countless Trees stamp set – which is, I admit, a bit of a flyover set – I thought it was cool.  I mean – it’s one of the Reversible stamp sets and you can create all sorts of fun trees with it.  One might even say…a COUNTLESS number of trees! 🤷‍♀️  It’s the one I picked to play with today and I paired it with the Celebrate Everything DSP – a Host-Exclusive reward!  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Charming Sentiments, Rugged Icons & Campology with…Candy Canes?…and a Video Tutorial!

Good morning and Happy Sunday from soggy Georgia!  We’re for sure in the Monsoon season here in the south.  Like…torrential rains – and then SAUNA! Yikes!  We took all the paper shares to the post office this morning in a total downpour – but…they’re in the mail!  And – WE were wet but THEY were NOT!  Whoo-hoo!!

Speaking of – if you’re experiencing regret or FOMO that you didn’t buy a share – let me know!  I cut a few extra Single Shares while I was at it if you’d like one.  Drop me a line at stamps-n-lingers@comcast.net!

Now, my card today doesn’t use any DSP from the Jul – Dec 2022 Mini.  Instead – it gets all its fun from…the Candy Canes dies from the mini and the totally-a-flyover stand-alone die set called Rugged Icons from the Annual Catalog!  The wonderful workhorse Charming Sentiments bundle provides the sentiment and – on the inside – go camping in the woods with the Campology set.  Take a look-see:
