Stampin’ Up! Happiness Abounds in Hues of Happiness Birthday Card

Good Monday morning, y’all!  Did you have a good weekend?  It was a hot booger here – but the weather cooperated and we got the garden mollycoddled and new gates up.  So…yeah us!! 🙂  Speaking of gardens – I picked about 30 blueberries yesterday – the first of the season!  Having them this morning in my yoghurt!  Yummm-OOOO!!

My card today is…gorgeous.  Not cuz I’m all talented or anything but…because it features the stunning Hues of Happiness DSP and the coordinating Happiness Abounds Bundle.  You kind of have to make an effort to NOT make something amazing when you use it!! I loved it so much that I actually made TWO cards!  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Chic Charming Sentiments Mini Pocket Envelope Gift Card Holder with Video Tutorial

Good morning and happy middle-of- May!  Can you even believe it!? I can – because I have flowers coming on my tomatoes – and I put fly masks on the ponies for the first time yesterday.  It’s summer, baby!! 🙂

My fun-fold card today features some seashells – so…a beachy theme.  Sort of.  Well – maybe not completely.  I used the pretty Texture Chic Specialty DSP as the basis but…then I pulled in the a la carte Mini Pocket Envelope Dies and…the amazing Charming Sentiments bundle.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Abigail Cottage Rose Birthday Card with Video Tutorial

Good morning on the edge of the weekend!  Do you have fun plans?  I’ll be spending part of the weekend attending (virtually speaking!) a Stampin Up event for Incentive Trip earners who…thank you COVID!…didn’t get to do the planned incentive trip this year!  I know it’s going to be fun – we’ve already gotten a really cool gift from them – and I’ll share pictures soon!  So…I’m looking forward to seeing what they’ve got in store for us! 🎉🎉🎉

My card today uses the so pretty Cottage Rose Bundle with the could-this-be-any-more-wonderful Abigail Rose DSP!  And…we’ve got some amazing Natural Finish 7/8″ Ribbon from the suite – that you can color OR stamp!!  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Framed Occasions Fun “W” Fold Card with Video Tutorial

Happy Half-way-thru-the-weekend, y’all!  Hope yours is going well so far.  We were very productive yesterday – we raised the three massive trusses Wayne built for our new garden shed.  Shed.  Hmmm.  Garage?  Warehouse? Second home?  It’s a little big, y’all – although, is there ever TOO big for a spot to keep all the paraphernalia that goes along with gardening?!?  I will say no – and stick with that story! 😉

My card today is a another fun fold – and it’s really easy.  It’s called a “W” fold (or an “M” fold, depending on your perspective!) and it’s really cool.  This one uses the Framed Occasions stamp set (a new set – that I think is going to be a “fly-over” even though it shouldn’t be! – from the new 2022-2023 Annual Catalog) and the Design a Daydream DSP – which is one of the Host-Exclusive items in the new catalog.  It also features the Celebrating You stamp set and Beautiful Shapes dies – both available right now in the Jan – Jun 2022 Mini and BOTH carrying over!  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Paradise Palms Sandy Beach Birthday at Sunset

Good morning, y’all!  Can you believe that it’s almost the end of March already?  I cannot.  It feels like the Savings Are in Bloom sale and my DOUBLE peppermints started yesterday.  But they didn’t and they’re both almost over. 😳😳😳

In between making bagels and pizza yesterday, I had a Zoom the Craftroom and, while we chatted, made a pretty card for you using the Paradise Palms bundle (which is carrying over into the new catalog – whoohooo!!) and the Tasteful Labels dies (which are NOT – they retire on 2 May and are on sale now for 20% off!).  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Tulips & Daffodils Birthday Bouquet for the Happy Inkin Thursday Blog Hop

Good morning, y’all!  It’s Thursday – which means it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!  We’ve got a theme challenge to work with 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!

When I saw our theme – I knew that the Flowering Tulips bundle was going to play a part.  And it seemed like I would also want a bunch of daffodils – so…out came the Daffodil Dies.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! All Squared Away Birthday For the Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Good morning, y’all – welcome to another edition of the Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team blog hop!  Each month we make projects centered around a theme – and this month our theme is Spring!  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!

Ever since the Savings Are in Bloom promotion came out and reminded me of the great bundles in the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog, I’ve been wanting to play with the All Squared Away bundle (which you can pick up all month for just $40 – a 20% savings!)!  And – since it’s got lots of flowers and flowers make me think of Spring…this seemed like a great time.  And – I amped up the flowers theme even more with the Pretty Flowers Embossing Folder!  (Yes, I DID use the word “flowers” 4 times in two sentences – sorry!)  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Waves of Inspiration Sneak Peek Totally Awesome Birthday Card

Hey everyone – happy last day of February!  Tomorrow is March – and that brings the new Waves of the Ocean Collection AND a wonderful ordering special for the Mini Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine!  Whoo-hoo!

It’s a LITTLE sad today, though – cuz the end of February means the end of Sale-A-Bration!  Today’s the last day to get free goodies!  The LAST day to get TWO free stamp sets when you join! 🙁  So…you know what you need to do!

I decided that this would be a good day to tempt you with the new Waves of the Ocean collection!  So I did.  I used the Waves of Inspiration stamp set and the bundled Waves Dies.  Plus the pretty Waves of the Ocean DSP!  And there’s not a single wave anywhere on the card.  Take a look-see:
