Happy Birthday

Stampin’ Up! Pansy Patch Dual Panel Birthday

Good morning, y’all – it’s THE DAY!  When this posts, we’ll be arriving at the airport (in theory – assuming I can get my buhonkus outta bed when I need to to be ready to roll).  As I type this – at 10pm on Friday evening – I’m mentally cutting out stuff to do in the morning.  Like – the treadmill.  I suspect that in the course of this day I’ll get plenty of exercise.

Work with me here.  It could happen! 😉

My card today features one of my favorite flowers – pansies!!  Which means, of course, that I’ve used the new and wunnermus Pansy Patch bundle with the stunning Pansy Petals DSP to make a pretty birthday card.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this card is from the Mojo Monday sketch challenge.

And the theme is perfect for the Global Design Project theme challenge.

I started by adhering a piece of Pansy Petals DSP to a Fresh Freesia mat for the card front.  Then I adhered a smaller Basic White panel to the lower half of the card front with Liquid Glue. I wrapped a length of Fresh Freesia 3/8″ Open-Weave Ribbon around the panel, over the “seam”, securing it in the back with Glue Dots.

I matted some pretty Pale Papaya gingham paper from Pansy Petals on Fresh Freesia and popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped a Pansy Patch sentiment in Evening Evergreen on a square of Basic White, then matted it on Fresh Freesia and adhered it with Liquid Glue.

I used the dies in the Pansy Dies (bundled with the Pansy Patch stamp set – saving you 10%) to cut a large and small pansy and a few leaves – these are all part of the pretty Pansy Petals DSP! 🙂

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the small flower and some leaves to the card front – then added a white Baker’s Twine bow with a Glue Dot.  It’s tied from two lengths of twine from the Baker’s Twine Essentials Pack.

I popped the final – largest – pansy on with double-stacked Stampin’ Dimensionals.  The little Bumblebee Trinket is attached with a Glue Dot – and finished off the card front.

On the inside, I stamped a second Pansy Patch sentiment in Evening Evergreen on a Basic White panel.  In the corner, I used Flirty Flamingo to stamp the pansy.  I used the Flirty Flamingo on the large image – and on the smaller “face” image.  Then I used a Blender Pen to “pull” some light streaks down into the white – creating a little more texture on the petal. Finally, I added the flower center in Bumble Bee ink.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Fresh Freesia mat and into my Evening Evergreen card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Basic White Medium Envelope got the Pansy Patch flower on the front…

…and more of the Pansy Petals DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  The Pansy Petals Suite is absolutely gorgeous – and for sure one of my faves!  Pansy Patch and the bundled Pansy Dies let you create pansies in as many colors as you can think of!  And – the Pansy Petals DSP lets you just cut flowers and leaves right from the DSP.  Perfect!

I hope you like!

Hopefully he’s happy and comfortable.  Missing him right now! 🙁

Stampin’ Up! Party Puffins Pattern Party Birthday Card with Video Tutorial

Good morning!  It’s T-minus-one-more-sleep!!  By this time tomorrow we’ll be on the way to the airport!  Negative COVID test, QR Code for testing down-stream, masks, twelve ID’s, tiny travel bottles, and lots of shorts in tow! I am cautiously optimistic that it’s really going to happen, y’all! 🎉🎉🎉

So – if you were able to join me yesterday for my YouTube Live, I sure appreciate you spending part of your Thursday with me!  If not, but you’d like to watch the replay to see how to make this card, here ’tis!

I used a couple of fun new goodies on this one – the Party Puffins stamp set takes centerstage with the Host-exclusive Pattern Party DSP playing a strong supporting role!  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from the Sunday Stamps sketch challenge this week.

And the color palette is from The Paper Players this week.

I started with a piece of black-and-white paper from the host-exclusive Pattern Party DSP (yes – you can select this 48-sheet pack of paper when you host a workshop OR place an individual order over $150!!) that I matted on Smoky Slate for the card front.

Next, I used a second design of Pattern Party DSP and added some Poppy Parade lines using a ruler and the bullet-tip end of my Dark Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blend.  Then I matted it on Smoky Slate and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I wrapped some black Baker’s Twine from the Baker’s Twine Essential Pack twice around the panel, securing it in the back with Glue Dots.

On a piece of Basic White, I used my Stamparatus to stamp the birthday Party Puffin in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored him with my Poppy Parade and Mango Melody Stampin’ Write Markers. Then I cut him with a cool die from the Hippo & Friends Die set.

I cut the resulting die cut across the short side – right about the bottom of the puffin’s belly.

I set the top half of the label in place and used my Poppy Parade Stampin’ Write Marker to color some of the circles surrouding it.  Then I popped it in place with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added the bottom half of the label with Dimensionals – separating the two pieces to give the illusion of a longer element.

I stamped the Party Puffins sentiment in Poppy Parade on a strip of Basic White – matted it on Smoky Slate and adhered it across “the gap” with Liquid Glue.

I tied a bow with the black Baker’s Twine and adhered it with a Glue Dot.

A single Black Matte Dot finished off the card front.

On the inside, I added a second Party Puffins sentiment in Poppy Parade on a Basic White panel.  In the corner is another puffin and I added some candles, too!  The candles are colored with the Poppy Parade and Mango Melody Stampin’ Write Markers.

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

My Basic White Medium Envelope got some Party Puffins candles on the front…

… and more of the Pattern Party DSP (with some Poppy Parade-colored circles) on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  How cute are these Party Puffins peeps!?  What a fun way to celebrate a birthday!  And the massive and fun Pattern Party DSP is a GREAT value and a wonderful addition to any of your projects.  Hippo & Friends Dies is a really amazing set – even if you don’t need to cut out hippos and unicorns!  The amazing stitched shapes are worth picking up as quick as you can!

I hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix 

We finally got Finn to his Get Acquainted Day at the Pet Paradise on Thursday.  It rained all day on Wednesday so we figured there wasn’t much point in taking him if he wasn’t going to get to swim! 🙂

So – he had a BIG TIME.  He crashed when he got home, y’all!

One cool thing – well, there are a LOT of cool things about this place – he’ll get ice cream every day, all day out with his friends, the pool, someone with him all the time, a Suite of his own (with an outdoor “patio”) and…the pool!  The pool is the BEST!

Y’all can peek in while he’s there, if you like!  This is the link to the webcams – https://abckam.com/petparadisepeachtreecity/camera4.php – there are several to choose from and you can switch them around to find The Man!

Here’s a couple of screenshots from his Big Day!

Have fun watching all the pups playing each day! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Sweet as a Peach Birthday 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 sketch challenge to work with today 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 the sketch, I thought that a branch of peaches and flowers would work perfectly for it – so I pulled out the You’re a Peach suite with it’s Sweet as a Peach stamp set and bundled Peach Dies, and the stunning You’re a Peach DSP.  Take a look-see:

And…here’s our sketch!

 

I thought this one worked great with the Just Us Girls Trend Week challenge, too.

I started with a piece of striped paper from the You’re a Peach DSP and matted it on Early Espresso for the card front. Then I matted a second design on Early Espresso and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

On a piece of Basic White, I stamped some peaches from the Sweet as a Peach set.  This is a three-peach stamp and I inked it in Pale Papaya first, then used a Blender Brush to lightly add some Calypso Coral and stamped it onto the Basic White panel.  I used the same colors and technique on the pretty flowers, too.  For the flowers, I also added the little tiny “center” image in stamped-off-once Early Espresso.

I also did some leaves – inking them first in Pear Pizzazz and adding Garden Green with a Blender Brush.

Then I cut out everything with the dies in the matching (and bundled for a 10% savings!) Peach Dies.

On another piece of Basic White, I stamped the Sweet as a Peach sentiment in Calypso Coral, then cut it out with a so-cool Scalloped Contours dies.

See those pretty gold leaves – and the sequins?  Those are all from the Expressions in Ink Ephemera Pack

I started building the layers of the collage – using Liquid Glue to adhere a die cut leafy branch – starting from the “top” of the cluster.  Then I simply added flowers and peaches – and gold leaves and berries from the Ephemera Pack.  Some of the peaches are popped up with Dimensionals.

I tucked the sentiment under the fruit and flowers, using Liquid Glue.  Finally, I finished with another gold die cut and the final flower on the right side of the sentiment.

I stamped a second Sweet as a Peach sentiment in Pear Pizzazz on Basic White, cut it with the little label die in the Peach Dies, then adhered it with some Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added some of the Expressions in Ink Ephemera Pack sequins here and there (and in the center of the flowers!) and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added another sentiment from Sweet as a Peach in Calypso Coral on a piece of Basic White.  Then, I  inked the leaves image (Pear Pizzazz, then added Garden Green with my Blending Brush) and stamped it in the top corner.  This image has “gaps” to allow you to easily add the three peaches image – which I did  (Pale Papaya – then added Calypso Coral with the Blending Brush).  SO easy and SO pretty!! 🙂

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

My Basic White Medium Envelope got the peach tree branch from Sweet as a Peach on the front…

…and I added more of the You’re a Peach DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  The Sweet as a Peach bundle is a photopolymer set that lets you create – and EASILY cut out! – stunningly realistic looking peaches and flowers – and when combined with the gorgeous You’re a Peach DSP…well, you’ll be creating summer-succulent cards in a snap!

If you’d like to recreate this card, all the products and card cuts you’ll need are down below!

Stampin’ Up! Dragonfly Garden Best Year Greenery with Video Tutorial

Good morning and Happy Mother’s Day to all the mom’s out there!   I hope you have a most wonderful day – with breakfast in bed and a day of total pampering!  Happy Happy to MY Mom, too!!

If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video, I appreciate you watching.  If not, but you’d like to watch the replay on YouTube – here ’tis!

I really love the new Stitched Greenery Die – it’s a large, single “a la carte” die – meaning that it’s a stand-alone product – not associated with a stamp set or suite!  But – it’s perfect for adding easy, fun stitched texture to your card fronts.  I’ve been waiting for this die for a long time!

The Dragonfly Garden Bundle takes centerstage, with a Dragonflies Punch-ed dragonfly from the Dandy Garden DSP pack.  And I used the Best Year stamp set to add a birthday greeting on the inside.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from the Global Design Project sketch challenge.

I started with a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock that I ran thru my Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine with the Stitched Greenery Die in place.  Note:  even though this is “embossing” the cardstock, you need to use the DIE sandwich on your cutter, okay?  NOT the embossing sandwich. 😉

Then I double matted the panel on Misty Moonlight and Soft Succulent cardstock using Liquid Glue.

Using some Stampin’ Seal+, I adhered a length of new Evening Evergreen 3/8″ Chevron Weave Ribbon in a loose “Z”.

I cut a piece of cardstock into a 2 1/2″ square with my Paper Trimmer, then I ran it thru my Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine with a square Stitched With Whimsy die in place.

I stamped the sentiment from the Dragonfly Garden set in Evening Evergreen.  Then I inked the big wildflower image from Dragonfly Garden in Soft Succulent ink, stamped it once on my Grid Paper, then stamped the Crumb Cake square.

I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the square over top of the ribbon “Z”.

I used the Dragonflies Punch (part of the bundle) to cut out a Misty Moonlight dragonfly from the Dandy Garden DSP.  I adhered it to the square with Liquid Glue.

A single Soft Succulent gem from the 2021-2023 In Color Jewels assortment finished off the card front.

On the inside, I stamped a Best Year sentiment in Evening Evergreen on a Very Vanilla panel.   In the corner, I added the Dragonfly Garden wildflower in Soft Succulent – then I added another Soft Succulent jewel.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Misty Moonlight and Soft Succulent mat and then into my Evening Evergreen card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got the Dragonfly Garden wildflower on the front in Soft Succulent…

…and two Dragonfly Garden dragonflies in Misty Moonlight on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Y’all!  The Dragonfly Garden bundle is so pretty – I’m tickled silly that it’s carrying over into the new 2021-2022 Annual Catalog – and at it’s bundle price!  Whoo-hoo!  Be sure to pick up the Dandy Garden DSP now, though, because it will leave us when the Jan – June 2021 Mini Catalog retires in June!  The Best Year set is chock-a-block full of sentiments for birthday, Father’s Day, thank you and even Christmas!  And, if you need tone-on-tone texture, be SURE to snag the Stitched Greenery Die – it is PERFECT! 🙂

I hope you like!

My girl knew JUST what I wanted for Mother’s Day.

Left me a gift!

Tried to clean the “red” off her breakfast bucket!

Went out and started grazing with gusto.

Happy happy Mother’s Day to me! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Color & Contour Days to Remember Sneak Peek with Video Tutorial

Morning, y’all – happy Friday!  We’re headed into another weekend – yeah!

If you were able to join me yesterday for my YouTube live, I appreciate you spending part of your day with me.  If not, but you’d like to check it out, here’s the replay on YouTube! 🙂

So I used a stamp set that looks like it would be complicated and confusing if you just look at it in the catalog.  The Days to Remember set is a genius way to make a calendar for any month of any year!  And I paired it with the super pretty Hand-Penned DSP and the Color & Contour stamp set with the wonderful, bundled Scalloped Contours dies.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one was inspired by the sketch at this week’s Paper Players challenge.

I started with some pretty floral Hand-Penned DSP and matted it on Misty Moonlight for the card front.  Then I matted a strip of a second design on Misty Moonlight and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

On a piece of Basic White, I stamped the days-of-the-week image from Days to Remember in Misty Moonlight.  I added “May” in Mint Macaron.  Then, in Bumble Bee ink, I stamped the days.  It’s hard to explain how to do that – so…check out the video, okay?  I show that particular piece starting at around 4:30 in. 😉

Then I cut the calendar out with the next-to-largest die in the Scalloped Contours set.

I used the little circle image from the stamp set in Misty Moonlight to highlight the day I wanted to…you know…remember! 😉

Then I stamped the larger sentiment in Misty Moonlight and popped the panel onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I used the two flower images in Color & Contour – stamping them both in Mint Macaron on Basic White.  Then I cut it with the die in the Scalloped Contours set.

You can see how I’ve used a permanent marker to identify the “top” of the two stamps and the die.  You should be able to add a similar mark to your set – and that’ll make it easy-peasier to line everything up!

I added the flower to the card with some Liquid Glue.

To finish – I used a Glue Dot to adhere a Pale Papaya Loose Flower Flourish to the top of the calender and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped a second Days to Remember sentiment in Misty Moonlight on Basic White.  Then I added the flowers again in Mint Macaron and a single Pale Papaya Genial Gem (coming on 4 May!).

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Misty Moonlight mat and into my Mint Macaron card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Basic White Medium Envelope got another Color & Contour flower on the front…

…and more of the Hand-Penned DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Y’all – I promise that this stamp – which made me totally scratch my head when I looked at it in the catalog – is not nearly as whoo-whoo sci-fi as it looks.  Although it IS pretty darned genius! Days to Remember can help you make mini calendars – cool scrapbook pages – and amazing cards!  And Color & Contour, with the wunnermus Scalloped Contours die set is…one of my favorite new goodies!

I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Friends Are Like Seaside Seashells Birthday

Good morning and welcome to the week.  Also? It’s now officially less than a month before we wing our way to the Aloha State!  Yeah!  And – we found out some good news – there is a Costco on BOTH Maui AND Kauai!!  Which means…my happy place is IN paradise!  It’s like…Happy-Place-SQUARED!!  And we can get food for meals and snacks, too!  Whoo-hooo!!

I’ve got a card that harkens to the sea today (THAT was poetic, huh!?) using the pretty Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set, a little faux stitching from the Stitched With Whimsy dies, and…some pretty Seaside Shells stickers! 😉  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

And, although I didn’t go as bright as the colors in the challenge picture, my color palette is from the Color Throwdown challenge.

I started with a Basic White panel that I die cut/embossed with the Stitched With Whimsy next-to-largest die.  Then I matted the panel on Soft Sea Foam for the card front.

I stamped a Friends Are Like Seashells sentiment in Soft Sea Foam near the bottom of the panel.

I de-sticky-fied some of the Seaside Shells stickers (remember – you can use your Embossing Buddy, or your arm or clothes – just tap the sticker on your chosen surface to dull the sticky!) – and popped them onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a second Friends Are Like Seashells sentiment in Soft Sea Foam.  Then I added a So Saffron starfish and a Seaside Spray sand dollar next to it.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Soft Sea Foam mat and into my So Saffron cardbase, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Basic White Medium Envelope got more Friends Are Like Seashells shells on the front…

…and some Sand & Sea DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Simple.  Easy.  Pretty!  I like it!  Friends Are Like Seashells is part of an amazing bundle that includes the wunnermus Seaside Seashells Dies (these are the ones that coordinate with the Seashells 3D Embossing Folder!  It’s all in the Jan – Jun 2021 Mini Catalog and you can still get your hands on all of it!

I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Easy Hand-Penned Memories & More Card Sneak Peek with Video Tutorial!

Good morning – hope your weekend is going well!  Our On Tour virtual event yesterday was great – I got some super cool ideas to share with y’all in the coming weeks as the new 2021-2022 Annual Catalog gets closer – so…stay tuned, okay?!

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 it – here ’tis on YouTube!

I am such a fan of the new Hand-Penned Memories & More Card Pack!  It has so many possibilities for super-easy card making (oh – and it’s ALSO great for scrapbooking! 😉 ) – and it lets you make quick – easy – and WUNNERMUS cards in no time!  For this one, I paired it with some Hand-Penned DSP and a die from the Penned Flowers Dies.  This card pack – as well as the entire Hand-Penned Suite – will be available to customers on 4 May! Take a look-see:

The layout for this one comes from the Mojo Monday sketch challenge!

I started with some pretty Pale Papaya paper from the Hand-Penned DSP that I matted on Garden Green for the card front.  Then I pulled out a second design from the DSP pack and cut the top of the piece with the scalloped die in the Penned Flowers Die set.  Remember – this Penned Flowers will be bundled with the Hand-Penned Petals stamp set.

I adhered the scallop-edge panel onto the bottom of the card front with Liquid Glue.

I pulled two coordinating small panels from the Hand-Penned Memories & More Card Pack and cut them both down a little bit.  Then I adhered the yellow-striped card to the card front at an angle with Liquid Glue.

I popped the second card over the first with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Next, I used some Stampin’ Seal to add a length of Pale Papay 3/8″ Open Weave Ribbon in a loose Z-shape.

I pulled one of the sentiment stickers included in the Hand-Penned Memories & More Card Pack and de-sticky-fied the back.  Tip:  when you’re going to use a sticker and want to pop it on Dimensionals (and who WOULDN’T?!?) – then you want to “dull” the sticky.  Use an Embossing Buddy if you have it to pat the sticky side of the sticker.  Or – tap it on your bare arm or on your jeans!  🙂

Once I de-sticky-fied the label – I popped it over the ribbon with the aforementioned Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a few diamond-shaped Clear epoxy elements from the new Silver & Clear Epoxy Essentials (coming on 4 May in the new catalog) here and there and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added another sticker sentiment – this time using as an actual sticker – on a Basic White panel.  In the corner, I added a floral sticker – it comes in black and white.  I colored it with the Pale Papaya and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends (yes!!  New blends in the new catalog!).

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Garden Green mat and into my Mint Macaron card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Basic White Medium Envelope got another of the Blends-colored floral stickers on the front…

…and added more of the Hand-Penned DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  As someone commented on the Live video – it would be hard to make a NOT-pretty card with the gorgeous Hand-Penned Suite, right??  And the Hand-Penned Memories & More Card Pack is not only gorgeous – it’s handy as all get out!

I hope you like!

Are you having trouble waiting for 4 May to get this Hand-Penned Suite and other goodies from the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog!?

I don’t blame you – I’d have been anxious, too, if I hadn’t already been able to buy all the new things!  Well – let not your heart be troubled!  I can help you pick any of the new Pre-order items – like the Simply Elegant, Hand-Penned, Pansy Petals and Beauty of the Earth Suites…right now!  When you join the Stampin’ Up! Team – you’ll spend just $99 for your Starter Kit and select $125 worth of SU product (including the PRE-ORDER!).  THEN – you’ll get to buy WHATEVER you like with at least a 20% discount.   As always, there’s no obligation, no commitment and NO requirement to sell/blog/do workshops/etc!  Let me help you get started – I’d love to have you on my Critters-N-Creatin’ Krew Team! Get more info here – or…just give me a holler!

The other day as I was tidying up the barn aisle – I happened to look up at our Maternity Ward.

And – there she was!

She was – apparently – hoping for her 10 minutes of fame, cuz she hung around for me to fumble my phone out of my pocket – wake it up and get to the camera – aim – focus – click.  She departed immediately thereafter!

And – a little later – I got a glimpse of what she wanted to show me…

Not really their best side, but…they’re young yet.

Guess I need to put the dog bed under the muzzle so that when flying school starts – their first failures won’t be so likely to end in tragedy! 🙁

Hey y’all!  Happy weekend!  I’ll be getting ready for our OnTour in a little bit – yeah!  Hard to say what we’ll do afterwards.  We both got our second COVID shot and are feeling the effects a little bit.  So – if that continues today, we may just lay a little low!  Maybe another cookout… 😉

Regardless, I’m planning to go live tonight at 7pm Eastern over on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page with a quick and easy little card that will keep your fingers completely ink-free!  Take a sneaky peek:

This is one of my FAVORITE new suites in the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog and I am certain you’re going to love it, too!

Finn Fan Fix 

Last night, Wayne, Finn and I had a staycation.

We went “camping”.

Well – we grilled steaks over our new cooker/fireplace doohickey that we got from Costco (cuz…Costco is awesome!).

We have finally got our patio area behind the barn apartment sort of mostly kind of practically almost finished.  So – Wayne gathered up some oak and we grilled out.  Over actual WOOD!

It.  Was.  Heaven! 🙂

Wayne was the chef.

We had steaks and asparagus and a potato.  Some sauteed squash and mushrooms.  And salad!

Hmm – not sure why the Carol-Channing-Smile…. 🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️

Finny observed the prep from the porch…

But moseyed up just in time…

And then it was time to see if Mom has a different attitude when she eats outside!

He even pulled out “sit pretty”….while staring intently at my plate.

I’m only a little ashamed to confess that I caved. 😉

Afterwards – we still had fire.

And…we had marshmallows.  And hershey bars.  But…nary a graham cracker to be found. 🙁

But – I did have….

The components for Marma-ladies!!

Yum!

We decided we need to try to do this once a week!

We’ll see how that works when summer “hits”!  😉

For this one – a slimline card – I used a few goodies that are carrying over in the new 2021-2022 Annual Catalog – the Timeless Tropical stamp set with the coordinating In The Tropics die set.  Plus – check out the Playful Alphabet dies sentiment!  Take a look-see:

The layout was inspired by this week’s Sunday Stamps challenge.

And the tropical theme….from the Cupcake Inspiration photo challenge!

I started with a piece of the wonderful In Good Taste DSP  (Yes! This IS carrying over into the next catalog – whoohooo!!!) that I matted on Soft Suede for the card front.

Next, I matted a piece of Very Vanilla on Soft Suede and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I used the Playful Alphabet dies to cut the letters from a second (darker) piece of In Good Taste.  Then I adhered them to the card front with Liquid Glue.

On Very Vanilla, I stamped the smaller flower from Timeless Tropical in Poppy Parade and two leaves in Old Olive.  I used a Blender Pen to “pull” ink to shade the flowers and leaves – then cut them out with their In The Tropics dies.

I also used a couple of the In The Tropics dies from Old Olive and Mossy Meadow card stock.  Then it was time to adhere the leaves to the card front – using Liquid Glue.  I popped the flowers on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut a few more small flowers from Mango Melody and adhered them with Liquid Glue.

I added some Opal Rounds to the middle of the stamped flowers and some Pearl Basic Jewels that I’d colored with my Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blend to the middle of the small die cut flowers – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped the small Timeless Tropical flower in Poppy Parade in the corner of a Very Vanilla panel.  I stamped the flower onto a sticky note and fussy cut it to make a mask – and placed that over the stamped flower.  Then I stamped the leaf image in Old Olive.  I removed the mask and “pulled” the ink with my Blender Pen.  I added an Opal Round to the middle of the flower, then added a sentiment from Timeless Tropical in Soft Suede.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Soft Suede mat and into my Old Olive card base – popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

I pulled out a basic business-sized envelope and added the Timeless Tropical flower and leaves on the front…

…and a little more In Good Taste DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Are you ready to head to the tropics for a birthday celebration now?  Timeless Tropical and the In The Tropics die set will make you crave sand and palm trees!  And the Playful Alphabet dies gives you virtually unlimited sentiment possibilities!  In Good Taste – THANK YOU Stampin’ Up! for carrying this gorgeous DSP to the next Catalog!!

I hope you like!
