Stampin’ Up! Just Us Girls Guest Designer – Peaceful Painted Poppies Birthday Card

Good morning, my peeps!  I’m back early on a Saturday morning for week-two as a Guest Designer at the Just Us Girls Challenge!

When I saw our challenge, I took it as a clear sign that it was time for a good ole collage card.  So, I decided this would be a good week to go all-in with the Painted Poppies and Peaceful Moments bundles.  And I do mean…ALL in!  Take a look-see:

And – here’s the challenge we’re bringing you this week!

I hope my card will inspire you to get crafty and come on over to play with the Just Us Girls challenge!  Looking forward to seeing what you create!

I also used the sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches for some inspiration!

I started with some of the pretty striped paper from the Painted Poppies DSP and matted it on Basic Black for the card front.  I used a different – solid green – pattern for the vertical stripe – also matted on Basic Black and adhered with Liquid Glue.

I matted a piece of Whisper White on Basic Black and added the sentiment from Peaceful Moments in Poppy Parade ink.  Then I adhered the panel onto the card front with Liquid Glue.

Next, it was time to “grow” some flowers!  First, I used the splatter image from the Painted Poppies stamp set in Flirty Flamingo all over a piece of Flirty Flamingo card stock.  Then I cut two solid flowers from the stamped card stock using the Poppy Moments Dies (which is bundled with the Peaceful Moments stamp set).  I cut two outline flowers from Poppy Parade and adhered them to their flowers with Liquid Glue.

I cut several solid leaf shapes from Old Olive vellum – found in the Perennial Essence Vellum Pack (annual catalog).  The detail leaves are cut in Mossy Meadow.  I again used Liquid Glue to adhere all the pieces together.

I cut a few rosebuds from the stamped Flirty Flamingo and their stems from some of the dark green paper in the Painted Poppies DSP (same paper that I used on the vertical strip).

With all the pieces and parts built – it was time to build the collage.  So…I laid it all out…

When I was happy with it I took the photo (above), then I picked up the “top” flower – and took another picture.

From there, I assembled the collage using Liquid Glue.  I adhered the bow – which is two lengths of Whisper White Solid Baker’s Twine – with a Glue Dot.

Then I added the final flower with Black Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added some Basic Black flower centers (cut with the dies in the Poppy Moments Dies) with Liquid Glue and some gold sequins from the Peaceful Poppies Sequin Assortment and the card front was done.

On the inside, I stamped a second Peaceful Moments sentiment in Poppy Parade on a Whisper White panel.  I added the Painted Poppies two-step flower images in Poppy Parade and Flirty Flamingo.  A single gold Peaceful Poppies Sequin finished it off.

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more of the Painted Poppies flowers on the front…

…and more of the Peaceful Poppies DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Okay, y’all – how gorgeous is this double-bundle Suite?!  The colors and the dies and and and…. simply stunning!  Painted Poppies – with its Painted Labels dies – provide the images and the Peaceful Moments set with its Poppy Moments Dies adds sentiments and a plethora of die-cut florals for all your projects!  I hope you like!

So – PSA!  I’ll be live tonight at 7pm Eastern on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page.  We’re going to make a fun little card using the new Beautifully Braided bundle.  Take a sneaky peek!

Hope you’ll be able to join me!  🙂

Tonight.  Right here.  7pm Eastern!

Finn Fan Fix


On Fridays – a thing happens that both Finn and I LOVE.

For very different reasons.

Finn – because of the treats.

Me?  Because of the clean, fresh-smelling house that happened without my help! 🙂

Yep – Friday is….Miss Sonya-Day!

And – Finn absolutely knows -“Miss Sonya is here”.  He flies to the house from wherever we are to say hello and get the treats she always brings!  🙂

The downside – for him – is that he (I) has to pick up his toys on Friday morning, where they have to stay until she’s done mid-afternoon.

They go in the “toy bed” and he patiently-ish waits until it’s okay to start pulling them back out!

He peruses them all.  Paws at them a bit – to seperate them and remind himself of how many he has (it’s a lot!).

Then – with one last pass – he picks THE one that will do for a few minutes.

Looks like Mr. Zombie made the cut today!

Won’t be a minute – they’ll all be strewn hither and yon across the living room.

Exactly.  Like.  A.  Toddler. 😉

Stampin’ Up! Lovely Little Ladybug 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!

When you see the color challenge you’re going to think From My Heart…Valentine’s Day…Love.   Well – I got at least ONE of those on today’s card!  I pulled out the Little Ladybug special Host stamp set from the 2020 Sale-A-Bration Flyer and added some From the Heart Specialty DSP to make a…birthday card!  Take a look-see:

I’m guessing you’ve probably guessed the challenge?

I pulled my layout inspiration from the Freshly Made Sketches challenge this week.

I started with some From My Heart Specialty DSP – look at that shiny red foiling!!  Wow!  I matted that panel on Basic Black for the card front.

The smaller art panel is Whisper White.  I used my Stamparatus to stamp the big flower from Little Ladybug in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, then I matted it on Basic Black and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I stamped the sentiment from Little Ladybug in Versamark Ink on a piece of Flirty Flamingo cardstock.  I sprinkled it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heated it with my Heat Tool.  When it had cooled a little, I cut it out with the smallest rectangle die in the new (and WONDERFUL!!!) Stitched So Sweetly Die set.

I popped the sentiment on with Black Stampin’ Dimensionals.

For the ladybug herself, I stamped her twice in Tuxedo Black using my Stamparatus – once on Whisper White and then once on a different From My Heart Specialty DSP design.

The Whisper White version was cut out with the ….drum roll, please!!…the new LADYBUG DIES!!

How cool are those?  And you’ll be able to get them on 4 Feb!  Or…right now if you join Stampin’ Up!! 😉

Anywho – I cut the Whisper White version with the die. I colored her face with my Light Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blend – with a dab of rouge with my Light Flirty Flamingo Blend.

On the DSP ladybug, I fussy cut just the wings.  ‘I also cut part way up the line dividing the wings – to partially separate them.  I used a stylus on the back of the wings to round them a bit and colored them with my Light Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blend.

I added them to the Whisper White ladybug with a Black Stampin’ Dimensional – a full one under the larger wing and a little piece under the small side.  I used a dimensional and some Liquid Glue to add the ladybug to the card front.  Then I finished it off with some From My Heart Faceted Gems – adhered with tiny dabs of Liquid Glue.

On the inside, I used my Stamparatus to add a second sentiment from Little Ladybug in Real Red on a Whisper White panel.  Then I stamped another little ladybug in Tuxedo Black and colored it with my Real Red Stampin’ Blends Combo, Light Smoky Slate and Light Flirty Flamingo.  I used my Stampin’ Blend Color Lifter to lighten the middle of her belly – to make her a little…rounder!

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another ladybug on the front…

…and more of that gorgeous From My Heart Specialty DSP on the envelope flap!

Et Voila!  This is such a pretty color combination and the beautiful foil-accented From My Heart Specialty DSP is all-in with it!  I think we can all agree that the Little Ladybug stamp set – which you can get for FREE with a $300 order while Sale-A-Bration is going on! – is simply the cutest.  And…with the pending addition of the Ladybug Dies?  Oh my goodness!!  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Coastal Timeless Tropical Oasis 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 sketch 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!

For today’s card, I went back to the gorgeous Tropical Oasis suite of goodies.  Uhm – you can get this TOMORROW!!  Whoo-hoo!!  I used the Timeless Tropical stamp set and bundled In The Tropics Die set, combined with some pretty “quiet” Tropical Oasis DSP.   Take a look-see:

And here’s the sketch!

I started with some solid-ish designed paper from the Tropical Oasis DSP and matted it on Grapefruit Grove for the card front.  the center panel is more Tropical Oasis DSP, embossed in the Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder and matted on Grapefruit Grove.  I adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

On Very Vanilla cardstock, I stamped three sets of palm trees from the Timeless Tropical stamp set, using the marker-to-rubber coloring technique.  This technique is made super easy with the Stamparatus! Put the cardstock in place – put the stamp in place – and you can stamp as many times as you need – layering that color to make gorgeous images!

First I colored the leaves with Pear Pizzazz – using my Stampin’ Write Marker and directly inking the rubber stamp image.  Then I stamped it.  Next, I added some Old Olive and stamped it.  I also made one tree where I used Mint Macaron and Old Olive, for a little different look!  Each tree looks just a little different – even using the same colors on them.  Love!

I used the same technique for the trunks – using Soft Suede and Early Espresso Stampin’ Write Markers.  Then I cut the trees with their coordinating die in the In The Tropics Die set.

I cut another piece of the brown Tropical Oasis DSP and matted it on Grapefruit Grove.

I added two palm trees to the card front with Liquid Glue – leaving one trunk on the left-side tree “loose” so I could slide the small sentiment panel underneath.

I added the small panel with Liquid Glue – and then adhered that loose trunk down, too.

The final tree has Stampin’ Dimensionals under the leaves and Liquid Glue on the trunk.

I cut out three “aloha” sentiments from Grapefruit Grove using the die in In The Tropics.  These are adhered together in a stack with Liquid Glue – then adhered to the card front with more Liquid Glue.

An Old Olive gem from the Noble Peacock Rhinestones finished it off.

On the inside, I stamped a second sentiment from Tropical Oasis in Grapefruit Grove on a Very Vanilla panel – then I stamped some trees in the same way that I’d done on the front.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Grapefruit Grove mat and into my Early Espresso card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got more of the Timeless Tropical trees on the front…

…and some more Tropical Oasis DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  The Timeless Tropical stamp set is absolutely perfect for coloring!  The images were just made for the marker-to-rubber technique – and really allow you to make some realistic looking trees!  And no one can deny the stunning beauty of the Tropical Oasis DSP, right?  Gorgeous!  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Happy Birthday to You Honey Bee Sneak Peek

Good morning and happy New Years Eve on the last day of 2019 and the DECADE!!  Hope whatever plans you have for this evening will be fun and safe.  Ours include…bed.  Probably by 9:30 as usual.  MIGHT wake up around midnight IF we happen to hear any fireworks.  Chance are slim.

Yes.  We ARE party animals! 😉

Now – before I go any further… Stampin’ Up! just gave us news this morning.  Write this down!

Cutting Blades Multipack Available January 3

The Cutting Blades Multipack (item 152391) from the January–June 2020 Mini Catalog will be available on January 3, with the beginning of the catalog sales period. The pack includes four blades for $12.00!!

There are just a few more days before you can get your hands on the blades and ALL the great goodies I’ve been teasing you with for the past few weeks!  The new 2020 Jan-Jun Mini catalog and Sale-A-Bration flyer goes LIVE in just three days!!  Whoo-hoo!!

Speaking of new catalogs – I’ve got another little look at some of the Sale-A-Bration freebies.  The Happy Birthday To You stamp set (a $50 level item) and the Golden Honey Specialty DSP (also a $50 level item), pairs up with the Honey Bee Bundle from the 2020 Jan – Jun Mini Catalog.  Take a look-see:

This monochromatic color palette comes from this week’s Sunday Stamps color challenge!

I started by matting some of the Golden Honey Specialty DSP on So Saffron for the card front.  I colored the bees and flowers on the DSP with my So Saffron Stampin’ Write Marker.

Then I cut a piece of So Saffron and one of Golden Honey Specialty DSP with the largest Stitched So Sweetly frame die.  I adhered them at an angle with Liquid Glue.  About here is where I realized I’d been hitting this “angled panel” layout pretty hard lately – sorry! 🙁

On a piece of Whisper White, I stamped three flowers and the small bee from the Honey Bee set in Basic Gray ink.  Then I cut them all out with their matching dies in the Detailed Bee Dies (bundled with the Honey Bee stamp set!).  I colored the bee stripes and flowers with my So Saffron Stampin’ Write Marker.

I stamped the sentiment from Honey Bee in Basic Gray on So Saffron and cut it out with the smallest Stitched So Sweetly frame die.

I adhered the flowers to the card front with Liquid Glue and popped the sentiment over top with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Then I stuck Mr. Bee on with Liquid Glue.

I tied a tiny Linen Thread bow and adhered it with a dab of Liquid Glue. Then I used my Dark So Saffron Stampin’ Blend to color a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels and stuck them here and there.  And that was it for the card front!

On the inside, I stamped a big sentiment from the Happy Birthday To You stamp set in Basic Gray on Whisper White.  Then I added some little bees in Smoky Slate – colored with my Light So Saffron Stampin’ Blend.  I finished with a single Rhinestone Basic Jewel colored with the Dark So Saffron Blend.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a So Saffron mat and into my Basic Gray card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Smoky Slate and So Saffron bees on the front…

…and more of the Golden Honey Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I’ve got this one in mind for a bee-loving friend of mine!  I really love the whole group of bee-goodies!  The Honey Bee stamp and it’s bundled Detailed Bee Die set in the Mini catalog and the Golden Honey Specialty DSP – free with a $50 purchase in the Sale-a-Bration flyer!  And the Happy Birthday To You set (also free with a $50 purchase) has the perfect sentiments – and even a big ole cake!  I hope you like!

So – the Honey Bee bundle is a part of my Special Bundle #6 – The Don’t Worry Bee Happy Bundle – as well as a whole bunch of other goodies – including the Timeless Tropical bundle and DSP.  Be sure to check it out!

AND – when you order this bundle, you’ll get a roll of 5/16″ Braided Burlap Trim FREE and you’ll qualify for 3 $50 Sale-A-Bration rewards OR 1 $100 and 1 $50 reward.  Maybe…some Golden Honey Specialty DSP to round out the bee-theme??  😉

Stampin’ Up! Lovely Lily Pad Peaceful Moments Sneak Peek

Good morning!  Okay.  So – after my video on Saturday night – someone left a comment that made me sort of take a step back.

I’d mentioned that it was the “last FB live of the year”.  Well….it was the last FB Live of the DECADE.  Last WEEKEND of the DECADE.

This.  Is.  The.  Last.  Monday.  Of the 2010’s!  🙂  So…enjoy it!

My card for today is comprised of so many FREE goodies…I can’t believe it!  Y’all know that Sale-A-Bration is coming up – and three of the five “non-staple” Stampin’ Up! products are IN the Sale-A-Bration flyer!  We’ve got the Lovely Lily Pad stamp set (Free at the $50 level), the matching Lily Pad Dies (Free at the $100 level), the coordinating Lily Impressions DSP ($50 level) and the Metallic Baker’s Twine and Sequins Combo Pack ($50 level)!  Yikes!  Now – I pulled a couple of sentiments from the Peaceful Moments stamp set (in the 2020 Jan-Jun Mini Catalog).  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one was inspired by the challenge sketch over at Inspire. Create.

I started with some of the gorgeous Lily Impressions DSP for the card front.

Then I started making lily pads and flowers!  The Lovely Lily Pad stamp set is a “reversible” set.  So – ink and stamp the “detailed” side – clean it off and flip it over on the block to stamp the fill in solid image!

So – that’s what I did!  I stamped the large flower in Grapefruit Grove – then flipped the image and stamped the fill in stamped-off-once Grapefruit Grove.

I did the same thing with the smaller flowers – in Flirty Flamingo and Melon Mambo.

I cut the flowers out with their Lily Pad Dies.  Then I cut some solid leaves from Granny Apple Green and Vellum Card Stock – as well as a few flowers from Vellum.

The last element is a Garden Green Lily Pad – stamped and cut just like the flowers.

I didn’t start this as a collage card – but…it ended up that way!  I layered all the pieces onto the card front – starting with the actual Lily Pad.  I made sure to let some parts “fall” off the edge – so I could trim them later for the sketch!

When I got to the large flower – I first tied a big ole loose bow with two pieces of So Saffron Baker’s Twine from the SAB Metallic Baker’s Twine & Sequins Combo Pack – and adhered it with a dot of Liquid Glue.

Then I popped the large flower on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

At that point, I trimmed the excess off the side with my Paper Trimmer and matted the panel on Grapefruit Grove.

The sentiment, from the Peaceful Moments stamp set (part of the Peaceful Poppies Suite), is stamped in Melon Mambo on Grapefruit Grove card stock.  I fussy cut the sentiment and adhered it with Liquid Glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals.

A few So Saffron sequins from the Metallic Baker’s Twine & Sequins Combo Pack adhered with Liquid Glue finished off the card front.

On the inside, I stamped a second Peaceful Moments sentiment in Melon Mambo on Whisper White.  Over the top, I added the large Lovely Lily Pad flower in Grapefruit Grove.  I added a tiny So Saffron sequin next to the sentiment.

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another of the Grapefruit Grove Lovely Lily Pad flowers on the front…

…and more of that gorgeous Lily Impressions DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Wow!  I love this whole group of Lily Pad goodies – from the Lovely Lily Pad stamp set to the gorgeous Lily Impressions DSP.  And – it’s all FREE!  Get the Peaceful Moments stamp set – with its wonderful sentiments – as the perfect complement!  I hope you like!

So…check out my Special Bundle #3 – The Flower-dy Bundle.  You’ll get the Painted Poppies Bundle and the Peaceful Moments bundle – plus even more great goodies!  AND – you’ll be able to select three $50 level SAB gifts OR one $50 and one $100 level gift.  You could pick the Lovely Lily Pad stamp set and Lily Pad Dies!   😉

Stampin’ Up! Music From My Heart Video Tutorial Sneak Peek

‘Sup, y’all!??  It’s the last Saturday before Christmas!  Just a few days left to do that last minute shopping – whether for gifts or…that Prime Rib!!  We’re picking ours up on Monday – just in time!  Can’t wait!

I’m also getting the Brussels Sprouts.

Yes – I am making Brussels Sprouts (my Mom is surely shocked!) – all of a sudden at the tender age of 29, I LIKE them a lot.  When I was just a kid – I detested them.  I think it may be the roasting in the oven with garlic and balsamic vinegar.  And…BACON!! 🙂

But – before the cooking commences for real – I hope you can join me for my Saturday night Facebook Live video tonight at 7pm Eastern on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page.  We’re going to make a fun-fold card using the awesome new Music From My Heart stamp set from the 2020 Jan-Jun Mini Cataalog.  Take a sneaky peek!
