Happy Birthday

Stampin’ Up! Gorgeous Bloom By Bloom Sneak Peek!

Happy Saturday, y’all!

Hope you’ve got something cool planned for the weekend!  It’s supposed to be gorgeous here so hopefully it’ll dry up a little.  It’s pretty much a soggy mess.  Happy that we don’t have the “snow” phase first!

I have another 2019 Occasions Catalog sneak peek today – is that okay with you??  😉  This one uses the new Bloom By Bloom stamp set and some Happiness Blooms DSP with an assist from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous set.  Take a look-see:

At OnStage, we did a make-and-take with the Bloom By Bloom stamp set…

So – I was excited to make another one – this time of my own design!

The layout for this one comes from the Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

I started with a panel of Whisper White that I embossed in the new Dot To Dot TIEF.  As usual, I cut the panel larger than I needed, embossed it, and cut it down to size.  Then I matted it on a piece of Pineapple Punch card stock.

I created the vertical strip with a piece of the Happiness Blooms DSP, that I adhered with Liquid Glue.  Then I wrapped some Lovely Lipstick ribbon from the All My Love Ribbon Pack, securing it in the back with Glue Dots.

The artwork is a piece of Whisper White card stock on which I used my Stamparatus to stamp the large flower from Bloom By Bloom in Lovely Lipstick.  Then I added the stem and leaves (all on one stamp) in Call Me Clover.

I made a sticky note mask of the large flower and stuck it on top of the stamped image.  Then I stamped more flowers around the image in Pineapple Punch and Calypso Coral.

I added the sentiment from Happy Birthday Gorgeous in Lovely Lipstick at the bottom of the panel.  Then I added the little Bloom By Bloom dots in Calypso Coral.  I matted the panel on Pineapple Punch and popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  And – the card was done.

 

On the inside, I added more Bloom By Bloom flowers and dots in Pineapple Punch and Calypso Coral to a Whisper White panel.

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Bloom By Bloom images on the front…

…and some more Happiness Blooms DSP on the envelope flap!

Et Voila!  Another winner from the 2019 Occasions Catalog!  The Bloom By Bloom stamp set and the Happiness Blooms DSP reside are bright and fun – and will be all ready for you to create beautiful projects! You’ll be able to get them all on 3 Jan 19!  Hope you like!

Snowflake Showcase Bundle Updated!

The White Velvet Sheets – a part of the Snowflake Showcase – have been discontinued.  As advertised at the beginning of the promotion, these products were all “while supplies last”.  And once they run out – they’re not being re-ordered.

What does that mean for my special bundles?  Well – I’ve updated the product list to remove the White Velvet Sheets, and reduced the price accordingly.

But folks – if you’ve been thinking you’d wait until the very end of the promotion period – I’d strongly recommend that you NOT wait another moment!  This has been a WILDLY popular set of goodies – and I’d hate for you to miss out.  The stamp sets, thinlits and trinkets are still available – but…there’s no telling for how much longer!

You can click on the picture above to see a fun video showcasing the products.  Then check out the flyer below to take a closer look-see!

Here’s the deets:

  • No limits apply during the customer sales period. So be quick while supplies last!
  • Products available while supplies last from November 1, 2018 until November 30, 2018. This means products will only be available until November 30 or while supplies last, whichever comes first. If a product’s supply is depleted before November 30, it will no longer be available for purchase.
  • Items may be purchased in any type of order.
  • Items may be included as part of a Starter Kit!!  Join now!
  • Ordering deadline:  November 30, 2018; 11:50 PM (MT)

Holiday Items That May Go Away Soon!

There is always a risk of products selling out without enough time to reorder and restock inventory before a catalog lifecycle is over. When this does happen, it is usually caused by a higher-than-forecasted demand. However, as we upgraded our inventory management system, there were system communication issues with the current holiday catalog and we have just determined that several products are at high risk of early depletion.

We want to share the list of products with you now so you can plan accordingly as you prepare for the holidays.

These products are running low and additional shipments will not be received before the end of the catalog sales period!

  • SNOWFLAKES & STARS WIRE ELEMENTS (item 147819)
  • SANTA’S SIGNPOST FRAMELITS DIES (item 147911)
  • CHICKEN WIRE ELEMENTS (item 147807)
  • ALPINE SPORTS THINLITS DIES (item 147916)
  • SINCERELY SANTA PROJECT KIT (item 148029)
  • FESTIVE FARMHOUSE COTTON TWINE (item 147888)
  • 5/8″ STRIPED BURLAP TRIM (item 147889)
  • DETAILED LEAVES THINLITS DIES (item 147921)
  • IN THE WOODS FRAMELITS DIES (item 147919)*
  • DETAILED DEER THINLITS DIES (item 147915)*
  • GALVANIZED BUTTONS (item 147891)
  • GALVANIZED CLIPS (item 147806)
  • TAKEOUT THINLITS DIES (item 147927)
  • SWIRLS & CURLS TEXTURED IMPRESSIONS EMBOSSING FOLDER (item 147923)*
  • TRANQUIL TIDE 1/4″ VELVET RIBBON (item 147802)
  • REAL RED 3/8″ MIXED SATIN RIBBON (item 147894)
  • MERRY CHRISTMAS THINLITS DIES (item 147912)*
  • FARMHOUSE FRAMELITS DIES (item 147922)

We don’t know when these products will go out of stock, but it’s possible some may run out as early as next week!

We have also indicated with an asterisk (*) which of these products will carry over into a future catalog.  So those items can be ordered at a later date.

We are working to fix the system communication errors to avoid similar problems in the future. Thank you for your patience.

PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT!  If you’ve got any of the items on the list above in your wish list and you’ve been waiting to get them – this would be a good time to go ahead and get them ordered!!  If you wait, there’s a very good chance that the items will sell out and you won’t be able to get them!  And, even though the carry over items will continue to be available for sale, once the current inventory is depleted, the new supply won’t be back in stock in time for Christmas.

So head over to my Online Store now and get the items that you want while you still can. 🙂

Sales for the following products have exceeded our forecast and are continuing strong, resulting in a large number of backorders. Because backorders are so costly, we have made the decision to shut these items off effective immediately. Since these products cannot be sent from the manufacturer in time for the holidays, these item numbers will not be reactivated.

Stampin’ Up! Amazing Life Birthday Sneak Peek

Good morning, y’all!  Here ’tis Friday again!  I LOVE a short week so much!!  Wish they were all like this!

I have a cute little card to share with you today with another sneak peek from the Occasions Catalog.  This one uses a set called Amazing Life – and it’s got the most perfect birthday sentiments!  Take a look-see:

My layout for this one is from the sketch side of this week’s Fusion challenge.

And the colors come from The Paper Players.

Here’s a little gander at the stamp set itself:  Amazing Life!

Cute, huh?  You’ll be able to pick this one up in January (starting on the 3rd!)!

I started with a panel of Whisper White and added a strip of So Saffron Subtles DSP to the side with Liquid Glue.  Then I matted it all on Poppy Parade.

Using my Stamparatus, I stamped the sentiment from Amazing Life in Poppy Parade.  Over that, in So Saffron, I added the sweet little cake image.  Then I added some little flourishes in Gray Granite.

I used my Poppy Parade Stampin’ Write Marker to lightly color the candle on the cake and my So Saffron Marker to add little teensy dots inside the word “cake”.

I wrapped some Gray Granite 1/2″ Textured Weave Ribbon around the panel, securing it in the back with Glue Dots.  I wrapped a shorter length around the ribbon and tied it snugly to create a “faux bow” – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a second sentiment from Amazing Life in Poppy Parade to a Whisper White panel, and stamped the cake over it in So Saffron.  Then I colored the candle and added a Gray Granite flourish or two!

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another So Saffron cake on the front…

…and more of the So Saffron Subtles DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  How fun is this Amazing Life stamp set?  I love that sentiment – life really IS too short to say no (at least ALL the time!) to cake!  Add this one to your list for 3 Jan, y’all!  Hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix

It appears that Finn has decided – permanently! – that the sofa is fair game for him, too.  Remember?  If the cat…then the dog!

So, bowing to the inevitable (he totally knows how to “work” me), I put a blanket on one end.

For him.

But – remember your if-then’s from school.  If it’s good for the cat then it’s good for the dog?

Well – that little logic trail goes both ways.  If’s it’s good for the DOG then…

Stampin’ Up! Happiness Surrounds Your Day!

Happy weekend, y’all!  Hope you’ve got something fun planned.

I have a plane flight planned.  Which – is NOT fun.  Not in any way that you slice it.  Tomorrow’ll be a 12 hour day to get back to Atlanta.  Bleh bleh bleh.  But we’ve had a great visit and gotten done all the things we needed to do while I was here.  So – bonus!

But – expectation management:  I will NOT be doing a Facebook live tomorrow – so sorry!  I don’t even land in Atlanta until a little after 5, so…just can’t do it, y’all!  I’ll be back next weekend, I promise!!

Let’s not think about that unpleasantness right now, though, shall we?  Instead, let’s take a look at a card that comes from the second stamp set in the upcoming Snowflake Showcase (available 1 Nov – 30 Nov 18).  This is the Happiness Surrounds stamp set and…it gives a completely different look from the Snow Is Glistening set I used yesterday.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Big Wishes and Buffalo Happy Birthday

Stampin’ Up! Varied Vases on Lace for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

 

Happy Thursday, y’all – and welcome to another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!! Today’s a color challenge, and I hope you’ll check out everyone’s projects when you’re done here!

I pulled out a favorite bundle from the Annual Catalog – it’s easy to forget about all the wonderful goodies in that catty when we’re caught up in the excitement of a new Holiday catalog!  Varied Vases, and the matching Vases Builder Punch, lend a floral flair to my Subtle TIEF-embossed panel.  And looks really lovely perched atop a Delicate Lace Edgelit die cut.  Take a look-see:

We had a great color combo this week!

Using the Delicate Lace Edgelits, I cut a piece of Pool Party card stock to create the “on Lace” portion of my card, and cut it down a bit to be thinner (top to bottom).

Next, I embossed a piece of Galvanized Metal Paper in the new Tin Tile Dynamic TIEF (these will both be available on 5 Sept with the new 2018 Holiday Catalog).  Then I punched out several shapes with the Vase Builder Punch.

I dry fit the Lace die cut and my vases to determine where my flowers should be stamped on my Whisper White card front panel.  Then I stamped the flowers from Varied Vases in Gray Granite to correspond to where the vases would end up.  To complete the flowers, I used full-strength Berry Burst for the double flowers on the ends and Lemon Lime Twist for the two middle sets.

For the “tulips” – I added the outline image in full-strength Berry Burst and then stamped the fill image in stamped-off-once Berry Burst.

With the flowers all stamped, I ran the Whisper White panel thru the Big Shot in the Subtle Dynamic TIEF and matted it on Pool Party with Liquid Glue.  Then I added the Delicate Lace die cut and wrapped some Silver & Pool Party Baker’s Twine three times around the panel, securing it in the back with Glue Dots.

I gently curled the cut vases and adhered them with Liquid Glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The Varied Vases sentiment is stamped in Berry Burst on Whisper White, punched with the Classic Label Punch and adhered with Liquid Glue.

I tied a bow from two lengths of the Silver & Pool Party Baker’s Twine and adhered it with a little Liquid Glue, added a few Pearl Basic Jewels and the card front was done!

On the inside, I cut another Delicate Lace Edgelits die from Pool Party card stock and adhered it to the bottom of a Whisper White panel.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Pool Party mat and into my Thick Whisper White card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

The front of my Whisper White Medium Envelope got a Gray Granite vase and stems and Berry Burst Flowers…

…and the envelope flap is embossed in the Tin Tile Dynamic TIEF.

Et Voila!  I think Varied Vases has to be one of our prettiest and most versatile bundles, don’t you?  And I love the Delicate Lace Edgelits – they create such beautiful accents.  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!

Happy Saturday, y’all!  Hope you’ve got a good day planned!  I’m headed to a friend’s 50th Birthday Party this afternoon – it’s been a while since I’ve seen him so I’m looking forward to it!

Stampin’ Up! Copper Country Road Birthday

Good mornin’, y’all!  Now – it’s Tuesday and in the normal scheme of things I’d be bringing you a card for the Stamp Ink Paper Challenge.  But – this week, the challenge is Shaker Cards.

I brought nothing – as in nada, zero, zilch – to make a shaker card.  Not a bauble or bead – no Window Sheets – no Foam Adhesive strips.  Nuthin’.

So – I bowed out – but that doesn’t mean you couldn’t go play if you want!  I’ll give you the challenge badge and a link down below!  Have fun playing.

What I did make for today is a card squarely back in my wheelhouse – and it even had a weathervane (guess the stamp set?)!  I love weathervanes – we actually have 4 or 5 of them – all horse-themed.

And none actually on a roof.

These things take time! One day… 😉

The stamp set I’m talking about is, of course, the lovely new Country Road set – which was another one of those “I MUST have that right away” sets for me!  And look what happened when I vintage-i-fied it a little and added it to some Wood Textures DSP.  Take a look-see:
