Stampin’ Up! Brushed Bouquet Peaceful Moments Birthday Card

Good morning, y’all – happy new work week! Didja do anything fun this weekend?  We stuck pretty close to home – but that was a good thing!  I spent some time on Saturday uploading all my Retired goodies from the Jul – Dec 2022 Mini and the Jul – Aug 2022 SAB catalogs (plus a few other things!).  So – be sure you head over there and check it all out!  The info is down below! 🙂

When that was done, I sat down to make a card to share – and I pulled out the new Brushed Bouquet bundle.  It’s a beautiful image-only set, so…I also went to the Peaceful Moments stamp set for a birthday sentiment.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Beautifully Happy Country Floral 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 great sketch 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!

The sketch we worked with this week has one of my favorite elements – angled front panels!  I pulled out my Country Floral Lane DSP and Cane Weave 3D Embossing Folder for my panels – and then added a big floral from the Beautifully Happy stamp set.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Artistic Queen Bee Birthday Card

Good morning and Happy Happy Hawwmp Day, y’all!  Hope your week is going well!  I am – sloooooowwwly! – digging out of the hole I managed to get myself in this week (time-wise!).  I do NOT know how I did it but…all of a sudden – yikes!  So – today is my get-caught-up day.  Wish me luck!! 😉

The card I made for you today really appeals to me – I love the moody dark card front courtesy of the FREE Favored Flowers DSP.  The pop of white from the Artistic Die set – with the flower-dy Queen Bee set atop it just….works!  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Elephant Parade Baby’s Birthday Book Fold Easel Fun Fold

Good morning!  It’s Monday again, y’all!  Hope you’re enjoying Daylight Standard Time.  I love it so much!

Said no one EVER!  YUK!!  On the treadmill in the dark.  Feed ponies in the evening in the dark.  Final walk around with Finn – IN THE DARK!  🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️

Did I already say…YUK!?!

On a MUCH brighter note – I learned that the little baby brush (personalized, thank you very much!) was a BIG hit with miss Jules.  Appears she’s walking around the house brushing her almost-luxurious locks with it – refusing to hand it over.  Score!! 😉

I am hoping her parents liked the card that went with – and I’ll share it with you today!  It’s a sweet little book-fold-easel card (one of my fave folds!) – and it’s adorned with an adorable heffalump from the Elephant Parade set and some Happy Forest Friends DSP.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Cloudy But Sunkissed Birthday Card with Video Tutorial

Hello hello!  Happy Sunday!  We had a great time yesterday – ate some cake, chatted with friends, cheered over the game!  Had to leave a little before the game ended to come home to feed ponies.  And Finn!

The card I made yesterday is a clean-and-simple little number – it’s a silhouette card using the Sunkissed stamp set – I was feeling in a tropical mood, I guess!  And I created a cool cloudy-sky effect using the Basic Borders Die set.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Celebrate with Tags & Soft Seedlings Birthday with Video Tutorial

Good morning – it’s T-7 days!  To what??  Well – this time next week I’ll be on the way to FLORIDA!  First to Jacksonville to meet up with a bunch of team mates for the 2022 OnStage Local and THEN – on down to Dinney!!  Hard to say which is more exciting – I’m glad I get to do BOTH and don’t have to pick!

Betwixt now and then, I’ve got some card making and sharing to do with y’all – and today is no exception!  Today’s card was inspired by my friend Darla Shelton who sent me a gorgeous card using my fave set – the Soft Seedlings stamp set!  I used that set – plus the Celebrate with Tags bundle – to make my own version – suitable-for-a-guy!  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Cottage Roses & Wreaths for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

I figured this would be a good day to go all-Autumn-all-the-time – our trees are going crazy in their Fall colors, so…I was inspired!  I pulled out the Cottage Rose set – to do a little white-wash technique – and the Cottage Wreaths set for the main feature.  Take a look-see:
