Happy Birthday

Stampin’ Up! Happy Birthday, Magnolia Lane!

Well – here we are – it’s FRIDAY!  And…the Friday before a three-day weekend!  Whoo-hoo!

That said – if you’re in the way of that darned Dorian – I know you’re going to spend the long weekend battening down the hatches and preparing your home for his arrival!  My thoughts and prayers are with all of you! 🙁

My card today is from the Magnolia Lane suite in the 2019 – 2020 Annual Catalog – an obvious favorite, right?  I used the Magnolia Lane Memories & More Card Pack and the Designer Series Paper, along with the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set and bundled Magnolia Memory Dies for this one.  Take a look-see:

I got the inspiration for this one from the CASE The Designer challenge over at the Global Design Project this week.

And the layout is from the Sunday Stamps sketch challenge.

I started by matting a panel of the lovely Magnolia Lane DSP on a double-mat of Mossy Meadow and Petal Pink for the card front.

The circle sentiment is from the Magnolia Lane Memories & More Card Pack – I just cut it out with a circle Stitched Shapes Die and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

Then I used a few Glue Dots to adhere a short length of Petal Pink 5/8″ Organdy Striped Ribbon near the bottom of the circle.

With the Magnolia Memory Dies, I cut a couple of flowers from the Magnolia Lane DSP (that’s right – one of the dies in the set totally cuts out a beautiful flower in one of the papers! How cool is that??).  I also cut out two larger leaves and two smaller from Mossy Meadow.

I adhered the leaves with Liquid Glue – then added the flower on the right with Liquid Glue.  The second flower is popped on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I tied a double-loop bow from Linen Thread and added it with a Glue Dot.  A small bow from the Petal Pink 5/8″ Organdy Striped Ribbon, attached with a Glue Dot, was next.

I added a single Pearl Basic Jewel and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a sentiment from Good Morning Magnolia in Mossy Meadow to a Whisper White panel.  Then I added a super sweet sticker from the Magnolia Lane Memories & More Card Pack.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a double mat of Mossy Meadow and Petal Pink, then into my Basic Black card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope for another Magnolia Lane Memories & More Card Pack sticker on the front…

…and more of the Magnolia Lane DSP on the envelope flap!

Et Voila!  How pretty is this soft and feminine birthday card, y’all!??  I LOVE that I can cut perfect flowers FROM the Magnolia Lane DSP, don’t you?  And the Magnolia Lane Memories & More Card Pack is amaze-balls, for sure!  Round it out with a sentiment from Good Morning Magnolia and…winner winner!  I hope you like!

TODAY and TOMORROW – are the VERY LAST DAYS to grab that extra gi-hugic Starter Kit, y’all!  Why, oh why, would you miss out on THIRTY extra dollars worth of free goodness – with no commitment?

Smart money says…YOU WON’T!  Talk to you soon! 🙂

Finn Fan Fix


It’s getting pretty real, folks.

Mr. Reindeer is…nearing admittance to hospice, I’m afraid.

With – I’m askeered – a DNR order.

He recently underwent a Finn-induced evisceration.

Yes.  Another one.

This one required a medically induced coma and several days in the ICU to get strong enough for the extensive surgery.

Finally – it was time.

Dr. Dad-Wayne mentioned that the next time – if Mr. Reindeer survives – we may need a skin graft.

But – he was able to cobble him back together – for now.

The Finn-Dad was SOOOOO happy!

Maybe too happy?  No time in the recovery room for Mr. Reindeer.

No rest for the eviscerated!

He carried Mr. Reindeer out of the barn and then…

…gently set him down in the grass.

Turned out Finn had some “business” to attend to.  Ahem.

But as soon as that was done – he was back!

Then it was time for the last walk of the night.

Are you guys coming?

WHHYY are you guys so SLOOOOW??!

He hurried thru the walk – on an obvious mission to get back to the house.

Only put Mr. Reindeer down when a PESKY FLY landed on his butt.

There are limits, people.  Flies must be dealt with immediately!

But finally – FINALLY!!….

Back to the house…to begin taking apart Dr. Dad-Wayne’s handiwork! 🙁

Stampin’ Up! Seasonal Wreaths and Scrolls Sneak Peek

Good morning!  Before I get going – let me remind you that today is the day that the Trimmer Blades will be available again – starting at 10am Mountain Time!!  I’ll TRY to be at the computer to send a quick “HEY IT’S LIVE” post…but…set your alarms and head to the Online Store right on time (or even a little early!) and start ordering your own (Item #126995)!  Three packs – that’s the max!

My card for you today is another Sneak Peek from the 2019 Holiday Catalog – which is just over a week away! This one uses the Seasonal Wreaths stamp set.  Something cool about this set is that it coordinates with the All-Around Wreaths dies – which you can get bundled with the Tidings All Around stamp set!  Yep – one die set…TWO stamp sets that coordinate!  Winner winner! For this card, I also used the new Stylish Scroll Embossing Folder.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one comes from this week’s challenge over at The Paper Players.

And the colors are from the Fab Friday color challenge.

I started with a piece of Whisper White card stock that I embossed in the new Stylish Scroll Embossing Folder (coming 4 Sept – find it in the Spooktacular Bash Suite!) and then matted on Blueberry Bushel for the card front.

I used the Stitched Rectangle Dies to cut a piece of Petal Pink paper from the Subtles 6″ x 6″ DSP and adhered it with Liquid Glue.

I cut a square of Whisper White and used my Stamparatus to stamp the wreath using the image in the Seasonal Wreaths stamp set.  I placed the stamp in the first “corner” of the square panel and stamped it in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  Then I turned the panel 1/4 turn to the right (clock-wise) and stamped again.  I did that two more times to complete the wreath!

I colored the wreath with my Light and Dark Call Me Clover and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends.  I also used my Blueberry Bushel, Call Me Clover and Grapefruit Grove Stampin’ Write Markers.

I added some faux “stitches” around the edge with my Blueberry Bushel Stampin’ Write Marker and popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The sentiment, from Seasonal Wreaths, is stamped in Blueberry Bushel on Whisper White and cut with another Stitched Rectangles Die.  I used a few Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals and Liquid Glue to adhere it to the card front.

I added a bow tied with Petal Pink 5/8″ Organdy Striped Ribbon and adhered with a Glue Dot.  A Gingham-Gala Adhesive-Backed Sequin in Grapefruit Grove and a few Pearl Basic Jewels finished it off!

On the inside, I added second sentiment from Seasonal Wreaths in Blueberry Bushel on a Whisper White panel.  In the corner, I stamped the floral bough image once in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink – coloring it as I’d done on the front.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Blueberry Bushel mat and into my Call Me Clover card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another floral bough from Seasonal Wreaths on the front…

…and some more of the Petal Pink Subtles DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  LOVE this wreath – made from four stamped images from Seasonal Wreaths!  But – there is ALSO a full wreath image in the set – and that one can be cut out with the die in the All-Around Wreaths Dies!  And – the Stylish Scroll Embossing Folder adds such a sweet and classy bit of texture! I hope you like!!

Finn Fan Fix


I have some proof that Finn has Super-Canine Powers.

So yesterday morning, the Man decided to hold the strategically superior high ground…literally…

He stared at me – looking really quite splendid! – as I peeked around the corner to take his picture.

He’s a Star.  It’s his due.

Several minutes later – with no fanfare, very little noise and no indication to him – I ever-so-stealthily went into the tack room (which he absolutely, positively could NOT see from his vantage point!) to get the peppermints for the girls.

One point two nanoseconds later…

Super ear-balls.  Super schnoozle.

Just sayin’.

Stampin’ Up! Mini Curvy Keepsake Sneak Peek Across the Seasons!

Mornin’, y’all!  Happy Sunday!

If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video – I appreciate you spending part of your weekend with me!  If not – but would like to watch the replay – here ’tis!

I showed off several projects last night that have a common denominator…the brand new Mini Curvy Keepsake Die and bundled Tiny Keepsakes Stamp Set – both coming soon in the 2019 Holiday Catalog!  Take a look-see:

On the video, we made the Come To Gather box…

…and the Snowman box…

I just showed the others!

The first is a Halloween box – using the Monster Bash DSP cut with the Mini Curvy Keepsake die – with a Spooktacular Bash tag!  You can see how to make this tag on the video, too! 🙂

Then we had one for a birthday – with a masculine bent!  I used the Come Sail Away DSP, Night of Navy/Sahara Sand Baker’s Twine, Sail Away Trinkets and a sentiment from the Itty Bitty Birthdays stamp set on this one.  The sentiment was cut with an Ornate Frames die (coming soon in the 2019 Holiday Catalog).  Y’all – this die set is SO handy to have!

Finally – I shared a little box that would be perfect for Mother’s Day, a Red Hat luncheon, Baby/Bridal Shower, church gathering – and probably tons more!  It uses the new Feels Like Frost Specialty DSP, the Leaf Punch, some flowers from the Lovely Flowers Die set, a sentiment from Piece of Cake, some Noble Peacock Rhinestones – and the heart label die from the Tiny Keepsake stamp set.

So – I hope you can see that this wonderful little Mini Curvy Keepsake Die is an awesome jumping off point for tons and gobs and oodles of fun projects!  And each box takes just one 6″ x 6″ piece of DSP or card stock, with no adhesive required for the box.  Make the box lickety-split and then…decorate to your heart’s content!  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Bitty Dino-Raursome Birthday Card!

Happy Happy….HAWWWMP Day!  Whoo-hoo!  On the downhill slide now, y’all! 🙂

Now – I have a terrible confession.  My card today is a card I MADE yesterday.  That’s not the confession – that’s pretty much the norm!

The confession is that the card I MADE yesterday is for my little Ginger-man who turned one.  Yesterday.  So…guess how late his card is going to be??

I know – he may not even notice.  But I notice and I feel bad. 🙁

So – I hope that the fun little Dino Days dudes on this card – and the fun colors from the Dinoroar DSP – will give him a grin and ease the sting of its late arrival.  Take a look-see:

I played again with this week’s CAS(E) This Sketch challenge – I think I’ve FINALLY got it right! 😉

And I kept it simple as a result of The Paper Players Clean-and-Simple challenge.

I started with some of that fun Dinoroar DSP, matted on Pretty Peacock for the card front.

On a smaller panel of Whisper White, I stamped the dinosaur footprints image from the Dino Days stamp set many times across the panel – in Pretty Peacock, Crushed Curry, Pool Party and Old Olive.

I matted the panel on a piece of Pretty Peacock and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

On a strip of Whisper White, I stamped a sentiment from the Itty Bitty Birthdays stamp set in Pretty Peacock.  Then I bannerized the ends with my Paper Snips and edged the banner with my Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Write Marker.

I popped the sentiment on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card front was done!

On the inside, I used my Stamparatus to stamp the large…uhm…Brontosaurus?…in Pool Party on a Whisper White panel.  I gave him some Pretty Peacock spots.  Then I added a Dino Days sentiment in Old Olive.

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another Pool Party and Pretty Peacock Brontosaurus on the front…

…and on the back I added more Dinoroar DSP to the envelope flap.  And then…I couldn’t help it.  I added another Dino Days dino – in Flirty Flamingo and Pretty Peacock – and a sentiment in Pretty Peacock.

Et Voila!  What a fun suite – don’t you think?  I love the sweet images and sentiments in the Dino Days stamp set – and the colorful patterns – be they dinosaurs or geometrics – in the Dinoroar DSP!  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Detailed Band Together Birthday Card

Happy Sunday, y’all!  How goes the weekend?

If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video, I appreciate you spending part of your weekend with me!  If not, but you’d like to see the replay – which…includes a pretty extensive sneak peek at the goodies in the 2019 Holiday Catalog! – here’s the instant-ish replay!

For this one, I used the Band Together stamp set and bundled Detailed Bands Dies (you’ll save 10% by buying them as a bundle!!) to make a cheerful and feminine birthday card.  Take a look-see:

I played along with this week’s CAS Colour’s & Sketches Double Challenge – has to use the colors and the sketch!

I started with a panel of Mint Macaron and stamped the big flower from the Band Together stamp set in Mint Macaron a couple of times.  Then I ran it thru the die cutting machine in the Subtle 3D Folder.

I cut it down to size and matted it on Shaded Spruce for the card front.

Using the Detailed Bands Dies, I cut some Mint Macaron and Shaded Spruce leaves.

On a piece of Whisper White, I stamped just the flower (three times) and some leaves in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  When they were all good and dry, I cut them out with their matching dies in the Detailed Bands set.

I used Light and Dark Rococo Rose and Light and Dark Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends to color the flowers and leaves.TTFN

Then I used Liquid Glue to adhere everything onto the card front.

For the sentiment, I cut the band from a piece of Mint Macaron using the die in the Detailed Bands set.  I saved the largest cut-out piece.  Then I adhered the band to another piece of Mint Macaron with Liquid Glue and fussy cut it (to create a solid band).  Then I used a little more Liquid Glue to adhere the large cut-out piece back into the middle of the die.

I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the band onto the card front – wrapped the ends around and secured them on the back with Glue Dots.

I stamped the sentiment from Band Together in Rococo Rose on a piece of Whisper White and cut it with the oval die in Detailed Bands.  Then I used my Rococo Rose Stampin’ Write Marker to make faux stitches.

I adhered the sentiment with Liquid Glue and adhered a tiny Linen Thread Bow and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped a second sentiment from Band Together in Rococo Rose on a Whisper White panel.  Then I inked the large flower in Mint Macaron, stamped it off once, and stamped it in the corner of the panel.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Shaded Spruce mat and into my Rococo Rose card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got a couple of stamped-off-once Mint Macaron flowers on the front…

…and another one on the back of the envelope (I used my Mint Macaron Stampin’ Write Marker to fill in the “gaps” between the envelope and the flap!)

Et Voila!  Isnt’ this a pretty bundle?  Band Together – with its big, bold flower and handy leaves, plus the wonderful sentiments – pairs perfectly with the delicate die cuts in the Detailed Bands Die set!  I love the possibilities!  Hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix


The Finn-ster yielded his spot today so that I could share a couple of pictures of one of my favorite people!

I met this young man almost a year ago.

The Big Ginger guy – one of my OTHER favorite people – is his Dad.  Mom – who took the pic – well – yep.  Another favorite person. 🙂

Fair to say that this is one of my favorite families – ever!!

So – this past week, while we were in Huntsville, we were lucky enough to catch them all at home – so…we invaded!

Little Ginger was teething and yet…barely a frown!  One of the happiest tiny humans I’ve ever met, really!  I got to spend about an hour with him in my lap and rocking him – and it was pretty danged nice, to tell you the truth!

The next day, while we were waiting for the “here’s-some-food-now-get-out-and-let-us-get-back-to-making-the-world-safe-for-democracy” event, I found something that simply had to go to the Little Ginger Man.

I do believe he liked it!

Is he not ridiculously cute??

Little Ginger Man hit the lottery in the gene game.  He’s going to be a very handsome gentleman.  AND – with his parents help, he’s going to be a real gentleman, in every sense of the word – his daddy most surely is!  And his mom – well.  She’s wunnermus and I’m so happy to call her my friend – and she’s raising her little man just right!

Can’t wait to watch him grow! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Art is Everything Amazing Birthday!

Here ’tis, y’all!  Say it with me.  And do it IN CAPS!!

HAPPY HAPPY HAWWWWWMMMMP DAY!!!

There – that felt good, huh?

Guess what today is?  It’s a LAST day.

  • Last Day to Earn Bonus Days Coupons – the EARNING starts tomorrow.  So…if you don’t have all the $5 coupons you want…you know what to do!
  • Last Day to SAVE big on Thirty One Goodies!
  • Last at-home-work day for Mary
  • Last day before I can order 2019 Holiday Catalogs to send to you!!
  • Oh – last day of July, too!

That’s a lot of Last Day stuff, isn’t it? 🙂

Now – this will NOT be the last day you see a card from me using the super Everything Amazing stamp set!  It’s so darned handy and versatile and…COOL!  Look what happens when you add it to Follow Your Art DSP!

This is my CASE of the Designer from this week’s Global Design Project challenge!

I started with some fun paper from the Follow Your Art DSP and matted it on Crushed Curry for the card front.

I wrapped a length of Crushed Curry 3/8″ Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon around the panel, securing it in the back with Glue Dots.

I used my Stamparatus to stamp the big beautiful sentiment from Everything Amazing in Calypso Coral on a piece of Whisper White.  I cut it out with the largest Stitched Nested Label die.  Then I used my trimmer to cut off one point.

I added two more pieces of the sentiment in Pacific Point and some Crushed Curry curly-do’s here and there around the image.

I laid the sentiment onto the card front where I planned to set it – and stamped the balloon image from Everything Amazing in Tuxedo Black – letting the strings overlap the sentiment panel.

I popped the sentiment onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the balloons again – this time in Calypso Coral – on another piece of Whisper White and colored them with my Light Calypso Coral Blend, Dark So Saffron Blend and Coastal Cabana Stampin’ Write Marker.  Then I fussy cut the balloons and popped them over the stamped image on the card front.

I tied a small bow from the Crushed Curry 3/8″ Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon and used a second piece to tie it onto the ribbon already on the card front.

I added some Coastal Cabana Glitter Enamel Dots and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added the balloons and curly-do’s on a Whisper White panel.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Crushed Curry mat and into my Pacific Point card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Everything Amazing balloons and confetti (I’m pretty sure that’s the technical term for the curly-do’s!) on the front…

…and some more of the Follow Your Art DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I.  LOVE.  THIS.  SET!!  Everything Amazing really IS amazing – for so many occasions!  And, of course, the cheerful and color-filled Follow Your Art DSP is so much fun!  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Pocketful of Happiness 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 Hop is a sketch challenge – and I’m excited to see what everyone comes up with –  I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop!

I decided to go “obvious” when I saw the sketch and pulled out the new Pocketful of Happiness stamp set and the matching Pocket Dies to make a birthday card for the challenge!  Take a look-see:

Here’s our sketch:

I also pulled elements from this week’s Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge.

I started with some woodgrain paper from the Pressed Petals Specialty DSP and matted it on Soft Sea Foam for the card front.

Next up is a piece of Whisper White card stock that I embossed in the Corrugated Embossing Folder and matted on Soft Sea Foam – then adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

On a seperate piece of Whisper White, I used my Stamparatus to stamp the large and small floral images from Pocketful of Happiness in Tuxedo Black.  I used the matching die from the Pocket Die set to cut the large image and I fussy cut the small flower.

To color the images, I used the Dark Stampin’ Blends in Petal Pink, So Saffron, Mint Macaron and Soft Sea Foam.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the “pocket” and the smaller flower images to the card front.  Then, cuz…hello?  It’s me!…I stamped the large image again and fussy cut the dove, then popped her over the first dove with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

With the Well Written Dies, I cut three sentiments in Basic Black and adhered them to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I added a gold Metallic Pearl to the card front – two in flower centers and one off to the side on the pocket.  Finally, with a Glue Dot, I adhered a small bow tied from Linen Thread.  And..that was it for the card front!

On the inside, I used my Stamparatus to add a sentiment from the Pocketful of Happiness set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink to a Whisper White panel.  I also added the floral spray image and colored it with my Stampin’ Blends.  I added a gold Metallic Pearl in the middle of the flower, too.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Soft Sea Foam 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 the floral spray image on the front…

…and more Pressed Petals Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I love the florals in the Pocketful of Happiness stamp set – and the sentiments range from birthday to thank you, in lovely fonts.  And the Well Written Die set is just such a workhorse – I really LOVE word dies!  I hope you like!

Now that you’ve seen my card, take a minute to hop thru all our projects today  If you click on the Next Blog button, you’ll go right to Kristi’s page. And you can just click on the names below to go direct to all the blogs!

Stampin’ Up! Everything Amazing and Silhouettes!

Happy happy HAWWWMP Day! 🙂  Hope your week is going well!

Back when I first saw the new See A Silhouette DSP, I thought in my head…”Hey – the 70’s called and want their psychedelic colors back!”.  Not that I don’t like it – I really do (a LOT!) – but…it’s definitely wild.  And – for me – has a sort of 70’s hippy vibe.   I used it with a fun new stamp set called Everything Amazing.  Take a look-see:

This stamp set works perfectly with this week’s Just Us Girls Trend challenge!

I started by adhering some of that wonderful paper on Mango Melody for the card front!

Using my Stamparatus, I stamped the big bold sentiment from Everything Amazing in Poppy Parade on a piece of Whisper White.  Then I added the other two – smaller – sentiments in Mossy Meadow.  This set is so fun – you can mix and match to make so many different sentiments! 🙂

I added some candles – also from the Everything Amazing stamp set – in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored them with my Poppy Parade, Mango Melody, Pacific Point and Blackberry Bliss Stampin’ Write Markers.

I matted the panel on Mango Melody and popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a few Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels – no, I know, they don’t match but…what DID in the 70’s?!?!  And the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a couple of Tuxedo Black balloons – that I colored in Poppy Parade, Pacific Point and Mango Melody – and a few Poppy Parade confetti strands and Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels to a Whisper White panel.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Mango Melody 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 balloons and confetti on the front…

…and I added more “groovy, man” See A Silhouette DSP to the envelope flap!

Et Voila!  Isn’t this such a fun stamp set?  Everything Amazing is so versatile – and big enough to “carry” a card all by itself!  And the See A Silhouette DSP – not my usual style but…it’s so in-your-face fun and pretty – I can’t help but love it!  I hope you like!

Do YOU Like to Pay Taxes on Your Goodies?!?

Me, neither!

If you love holidays—and don’t love taxes—we have some great news for you! Twelve U.S. states will have sales tax holidays for school supplies over the next several weeks. The dates for each state’s sales tax holiday will vary; the definition of “school supplies” will also vary from state to state. Fortunately, a selection of Stampin’ Up! products qualify as school supplies and will be tax-free during each state’s sales tax holiday period. (Sales tax holidays may not apply to additional county, city, and special jurisdiction taxes.)

If you live in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Massachusetts, Missouri, New Mexico, Ohio, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia or Wisconsin (whoo-hoo!) —click the picture below to see which products will be tax-free for each state !  HINT:  ALABAMA is THIS weekend!

Important Note: Orders must be placed with Stampin’ Up! during the sales tax holiday period to receive these select items tax free; each period begins—and ends—at midnight (Mountain Time).

Finn Fan Fix


 

Well – the Finn-ster didn’t come home quite as unscathed from summer camp as we thought.  He’s got kennel cough.

Which is a generic term for any contagious upper respiratory illness with a cough.

So – he’s been hacking and coughing since last night.

Which meant…a trip to his doctor on Tuesday.

Only WE don’t like to go to his doctor (mostly cuz of the credit card business at the end!).

Finn LOVES his doctor!  And is the best of patients!

The good news is that the medicine they gave us was already making him feel better by Tuesday evening!! 🙂

Thanks, Dr. Chris!

That’s not “new” Dr. Chris – that’s “old” Dr. Chris.  What are the odds there’d be TWO Dr. Chris’s in Finn’s life?!?

Stampin’ Up! Woven Rare Blessings 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 Hop is a color challenge – and I’m excited to see what everyone comes up with –  I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop!

I love the color combo for today’s challenge – and I know you will, too!  I decided to ink up a new set called Rare Blessings – and I combined it with a bit of Magnolia Lane DSP and a Woven Heirlooms sentiment  Take a look-see:

And – just in case it’s not totally obvious – here’s the color challenge we had!

I started with some appropriately-colored paper from the Magnolia Lane DSP and matted it on Petal Pink for the card front.

Next up is a piece of Basic Black card stock, embossed in the Corrugated 3D Embossing Folder, torn to size and adhered at a jaunty angle with Liquid Glue.

I stamped the big floral image from Rare Blessings in Tuxedo Black on Whisper White and cut it with a Rectangle Stitched Die.  Using the “splotch” image in the set, I added some Petal Pink around the top of the image and some Mossy Meadow around the bottom.  Then I colored the flowers with my Light and Dark Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends and the leaves with my Light and Dark Mossy Meadow Blends.

I wrapped some Mossy Meadow Linen Thread from the Magnolia Lane Ribbon Combo pack around the panel, securing it in the back with Glue Dots.

I popped the panel onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On another piece of Whisper White, I stamped a Rare Blessings sentiment in Mossy Meadow.  Over that I added the splotch image in Petal Pink.  Then I cut it with a small Rectangle Stitched Die.

I popped the sentiment onto the card front with Dimensionals.

I tied a double-length bow with the Mossy Meadow Linen Thread and adhered it with a Glue Dot.  A Pearl Basic Jewel finished off the card front.

On the inside, I stamped a sentiment from the Woven Heirlooms set in Mossy Meadow on a Whisper White panel.  Over top is some Rare Blessings splotches in Petal Pink.  I also added a smaller Rare Blessings flower in Tuxedo Black and colored it with my Blends.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Petal Pink mat and then 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 another Rare Blessings flower and splotch on the front…

…and some more Magnolia Lane DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Rare Blessings is a truly lovely stamp set – and works so perfectly with the pretty paper from Magnolia Lane and the fonts/sentiments from Woven Heirlooms.  I hope you like!
