Jan – Jun 2021 Mini Catalog Sneak Peek

Stampin’ Up! Sunshine & Rainbows of Happiness Sneak Peek Thank You!

Good morning!  And…happy last day of November 2021.  Can.  You.  Even.  Believe.  That?!?  Sheesh – the days are just flying by!!

Besides November – there’s ANOTHER thing that ends today!  And that’s the amazing Start With Savings Starter Kit Promotion.  In which you pay $75 plus tax and GET $125 in Stampin’ Up! product, free shipping and the keys to 20% off on EVERYTHING you buy!  What do you NOT get?  You won’t get a contract – you won’t have a commitment – you won’t get a hard-sell to sell.  Sorry – if that’s what you’re after…this isn’t the place!  Give me a holler if you’d like more deets – or…click right here to get started!  But…do it by 11:50 PM (MT) tonight before this great Starter Kit price goes away!

I pulled out another new couple of goodies – coming to you on 4 Jan (oh – that whole joining thing?  Join with me today and…order this TOMORROW! 🎉🎉🎉) in the Jan – Feb 2022 Mini catalog.  This bright, fun card features the new Rainbow of Happiness stamp set and bundled Brilliant Rainbow Dies!  And…some FREE paper!  The Sunshine & Rainbows 6″ x 6″ DSP will be FREE with a $50 purchase during Sale-A-Bration (4 Jan – 28 Feb).  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one comes from the sketch side of the Sugar Pea Designs Mix-It Up challenge.

…and the bright color palette is thanks to the Inspire. Create.  Challenge.

I started by embossing a piece of Basic White cardstock in the Hive 3D Embossing Folder (new in the Jan-Jun 2022 Mini and available on 4 Jan) and adhering it with Liquid Glue on the front of a Basic White cardstock.

I selected some likely DSP designs from the Sunshine & Rainbows 6″ x 6″ DSP (Sale-A-Bration!) and matted them on Flirty Flamingo, then adhered them to the card front – all with Liquid Glue.

I used the smaller rainbow die in the Brilliant Rainbow die set to cut out a rainbow printed on one design in the Sunshine & Rainbows DSP.  The die lines up perfeclty with the DSP – and cuts 4 perfect rainbow arcs!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere each piece of the die cut rainbow to a piece of Basic White cardstock.  Then I fussy cut around the complete rainbow.

I popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I used the cloud dies to cut a few Basic White clouds and then discovered that the Thank You sentiment in the Rainbow of Happiness stamp set fit them PERFECTLY – so…I stamped three of them in Misty Moonlight!

I adhered one cloud (no sentiment) to the rainbow with Liquid Glue – then popped all three sentiment clouds on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added some new Brushed Brass Butterflies (these are ALSO new – and super super cool!) and the card front was done!

On the inside I stamped a second Rainbow of Happiness sentiment in Misty Moonlight on a Basic White panel.  I used another of the stamps to stamp a rainbow over top – I stamped it three times (offsetting it a smidge each time) – in Magenta Madness, Daffodil Delight and Granny Apple Green.  Then I added one more Brushed Brass Butterfly! 🙂

I used Stampin’ Seal to adhere the panel to a Flirty Flamingo mat and then into the Thick Basic White card base and the card was done!

My Basic White Medium Envelope got a repeat of the three-color rainbow on the front…

…and more of the Sunshine & Rainbows 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila! This new Rainbow of Happiness stamp set – with the bundled Brilliant Rainbow Die set is so bright and cheerful – and I love the sentiments (and the fun fonts!).  I am a HUGE fan of dies that cut images from Designer paper – and the Sunshine & Rainbows 6″ x 6″ DSP lets you do just that!

So – the Rainbow of Happiness bundle will be $44 in the new catalog.  Pick that – the Hive 3D Embossing Folder ($9) and a pack of the uber-awesome Brushed Brass Butterflies ($10) – and you can pick the Sunshine & Rainbows DSP for…FREE!!  Whoo-hoo!!

I hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix 

On Friday – Sonya picks up Finn’s toys and piles them in the “toy-bed”.  He has a…plethora…of toys.

As she walked out of the living room she asked Finn how long it would take for him to go start digging them out.

I said…about 30 seconds.

I was wrong by 3 seconds.

Mr. Turtle NEEDED to come back out.

No turtle-time-out today!

Stampin’ Up! Honeybee Home Sneak Peek with Biggest Wish Thanks

Happy Happy Hawwwmp Day – and happy Thanksgiving Eve!  Are you ready?  Today is cooking day – at least at my house.  My pressure cooker is going to be a-steaming away!

I’ve got a cool card – with a sneak peek of a bundle from the new Jan-Jun 2022 Mini Catalog – going live to you on 4 Jan 2022!  The Honeybee Home Bundle is one I was anxiously awaiting – and now…it’s all sticker-mounted and inked up!  I also borrowed a sentiment from the Biggest Wish set – available now in the Annual Catalog.  And…gorgeous Heart & Home DSP plays a major role.  Take a look-see:

 

I used the sketch from Sunday Stamps for the layout.

And – many elements are thanks to the inspiration from the As You See It challenge.

I started by adhering a piece of new Heart & Home DSP to an Early Espresso mat for the card front.

I cut a piece of Bumble Bee cardstock with a Stitched Rectangle Die, then embossed it in the new Hive 3D Embossing Folder (coming on 4 Jan in the Jan-Jun 2022 Mini Catalog).  I adhered the die cut to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I matted some gray woodgrain paper from Heart & Home DSP on Early Espresso and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

Then I used a little Liquid Glue to adhere a new Basic Gray Heart & Home Doily (coming in the new catalog on 4 Jan – and the pack has Cinnamon Cider, Basic Gray and Misty Moonlight doilies!)

I used the grass and flowers dies in the Honeybee Blooms Dies (bundled with Bumble Bee Home) to cut two from Bumble Bee and one from Cinnamon Cider cardstock.  These are adhered to the gray doily with Liquid Glue.

On a piece of Basic White, I stamped the sentiment from Biggest Wish in Bumble Bee ink.  Over it, I stamped a grasses image from Honeybee Home in stamped-off-once Cinnamon Cider.  Then I cut it with a Layering Circles Die and popped it onto the doily with Stampin’ Dimensionals.


I stamped a few little bee images from Honeybee Home in Basic Gray ink on Basic White and cut them with their matching dies in the Honeybee Blooms Dies.  I colored them with my Bumble Bee Stampin’ Write Marker.

Then I adhered the bees with Liquid Glue (the bottom bee has a Dimensional under his little bee-butt).

I tied a Linen Thread Double loop bow…

a. Wrap the Linen Thread around four fingers four times.
b. Without cutting the thread, wrap around two fingers four times.
c. Pull the loops off and squeeze the loops together.
d. Twist the loops one time around to create a “figure 8”.
e. Tie a second short length of Thread around the loops in the middle.
f. Spread the loops out to create a bow

…and adhered it with a Glue Dot.  To finish off, I added some Cinnamon Cider 2020-2021 In Color Squares and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped a sweet sentiment from Honeybee Home in Bumble Bee ink on a Basic White panel.  In the corner I used Bumblebee and Cinnamon Cider to stamp some Honeybee Home florals.

I used Stampin’ Seal to adhere the panel to an Early Espresso mat and into my Cinnamon Cider card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Basic White Medium Envelope got more of the Honeybee Home florals on the front…

…and more Heart & Home DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Seriously!?  The Honeybee Home stamp set and bundled Honeybee Flowers Die set is part of the Heart & Home Suite and…I love it SOOO much!  I mean…look at the font on those sentiments!

Combine it with the Heart & Home DSP and…think of what you can make!

I hope you like!

Now – if you’re wanting to get your hands on these goodies – or any OTHER from the new catalog – sooner than 4 Jan…well.  Take advantage of the amaze-balls Start with Savings Starter Kit promotion (pick $125 in goodies, get free shipping and pay just $75!!) and join my team right now!  THEN – on 1 December you (like I will be doing!) can place a pre-order and get the new goodies for yourself.  Including this suite!  Click here to get started – would love to have you on the team!

Stampin’ Up! Hey Birthday Chick Bundle Sneak Peek Birthday Card

Happy Happy HAWWWWMP Day!!  Yep – it’s mid-week and you’re at the top of the hill.  It’s a downhill slide to the weekend from here! 🙂

Weekends are fun.  Everyone likes weekends!

And…new stamp sets and dies – swarming with uber-cute-and-stinkin’-adorable chickens are ALSO fun.  And everyone ALSO likes THEM!  Which means everyone is going to LOVE this new bundle that you’re going to be able to get on 2 Feb!  It’s called the Hey Birthday Chick bundle!  Now – Hey Birthday Chick is already IN the Jan- Jun 2021 Mini Catalog (page 52 if you’re looking).  But – in a couple of weeks (or…right NOW if you’re a Demonstrator or JOIN NOW!) – you’ll be able to get the Hey Birthday Chick DIES!  I’ve used this new bundle today – with some Dandy Garden 6″ x 6″ DSP.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one comes from the CAS Colours & Sketches challenge.

I started with a piece of Mossy Meadow card stock for the card front.  From a piece of Dandy Garden 6″ x 6″ DSP I cut two rectangles with the second-largest of the Stitched So Sweetly Dies and adhered them to the panel with Liquid Glue.

Then I pulled out the Hey Birthday Chick dies, cut a Bumble Bee sentiment (how cool is that?!?) and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

On a piece of Whisper White (Basic White will for sure work, too!), I stamped the cute chicken and balloon image from Hey Birthday Chicken in Early Espresso.  I also stamped the balloon part on a piece of Blackberry Bliss Dandy Garden 6″ x 6″ DSP.  Using the die in the Hey Birthday Chicken set to cut the chicken and balloon.  I fussy cut the DSP balloon and colored over the lines with my Early Espresso Stampin’ Write Marker, then popped it over the stamped balloon with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I colored the chicken with my Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends Combo and Bumble Bee Stampin’ Write Marker.

Using the fence die in Hey Birthday Chicken Dies I cut an Early Espresso fence.  I also cut three “feed sacks” – one each in Bumble Bee, Mossy Meadow and Crumb Cake.

I adhered the fence and three “feed sacks” with Liquid Glue – then popped the chicken and balloon over top with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I decided my chicken was a hen – and needed a hair bow – so I cut one (yes, it’s in the die set!) from the same Dandy Garden 6″ x 6″ DSP paper and stuck it in her hair with Liquid Glue.  And…the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped a second Hey Birthday Chick image in Early Espresso ink on a piece of Whisper White (or Basic White).  I colored it with Crumb Cake, Flirty Flamingo and Blackberry Bliss Stampin’ Blend Combos and Bumble Bee Stampin’ Write Marker.  I also stamped the image on the Dandy Garden DSP and fussy cut just the cupcake liner, which I adhered with Liquid Glue over the stamped image.  Then I stamped a second sentiment in Bumble Bee.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to Mossy Meadow and Bumble Bee mats and then into my Blackberry Bliss card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got the fun chicken and cupcake image on the front…

…and more of the Dandy Garden 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  You know, I loved the Hey Chick set when it was part of 2017 Sale-A-Bration and these little guys and gals in the Hey Birthday Chick set are all similar to those guys!  And…add in the totes-adorbs Hey Birthday Chick Die set….and you’ve got a winner!

And – we’re ALSO going to see the return of Hey Chick.  With dies of its own!

I hope you like and…are adding the whole shootin’ match to your I-gotta-get-it list!!

Finn Fan Fix 

Since his arrival four years ago, we’ve taught Finn to not go into the stalls.

At all.  Whether the horses are in them or not.  For obvious reasons.

And he’s been pretty solid on it.  He does lean into the doorway some to…sniff the sniffs and see if they dropped any food.

Or….erhm…droppings. 😉

So – imagine my surprise when, as I was cleaning Cady’s stall yesterday morning, I look up to see…

Four paws in.  ALL the way in.

You can see he knows he’s been spotted.

So….

I think this is the dog equivalent of whistling!  Nothing to see here.  Just a dog.  In a stall….

Maybe she won’t be mad if I offer an obedience behavior. And be really cute.

Who knows.  It could work!!

Stampin’ Up! An Oval Occasions Video Tutorial Sneak Peek!

Good morning!  I hope you had a safe New Year’s and got your BEPG in.  That’s an acronym I just made up.  Black-Eyed Peas & Greens.  Catchy, huh?  We managed the BEP – but…the G was a problem.  I was certain-sure I had collards et al in the freezer but I was certain-wrong!  So… we had leftover Green Beans with the BEP.  They’re green, right?  Hoping it was a suitable sub and not a close non-example.  But…we’re gonna be lucky cuz of the BEPs so… half-way is better than no-way!  🙂

For my first Facebook live of 2021, I’ve got a fun layout for you – I borrowed it from the Jan – Jun 2021 Mini Catalog (which is only 3 days away!!).  I’ll give you a look and a how-to tonight at 7pm Eastern over on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page.  Here’s a sneaky peek!

Stampin’ Up! Fine Art Floral Gallery Sneak Peek Fun-Fold with Video Tutorial

Happy 2021!!  I suspect most of us are hoping and praying that this is a better year – on so many levels! – than 2020 was.  I know – and you know – that it’s not going to change for the better overnight.  But…perhaps the light we’re seeing at the end of the tunnel is NOT a train.  Hope springs eternal. 🙂

My first card for the year comes with a video tutorial and, if you were able to join me yesterday on my You Tube channel, I appreciate you spending part of your New Year’s Eve with me!  If not, here’s the replay!  Hint: don’t be confused by the picture – I DID make a different card on the video.  But…it means you get a two-fer today! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Playful Darling Donkeys Sneak Peek 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 wide open theme challenge 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!

Since it’s New Year’s Eve – and…I think most of us are quite ready to see 2020 in the rearview mirror – I figured I’d make a cute card along the lines of a few I’ve seen around the interwebs the past week or so.  It features Darling Donkeys kicking a Playful Alphabet 2020 to the curb.  And it’s all set atop some Flower & Field DSP.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Happy Thoughts Sneak Peek with Forever Fern Greenery

Good morning! Hope your week is going well.  Not too many more days in 2020, y’all!  We’ll be sleeping thru New Year’s before we know it.  Be sure that you’ve picked up your Black Eyed Peas and Collard Greens.  After 2020 – I’d say we need as much luck and prosperity as we can get.  I, for one, am taking no chances! 🙂

My card today combines the Forever Greenery DSP and the Forever Fern stamp set – both available right now in the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog – with another sneak peek of the amazing Happy Thoughts sentiment set coming in like…a week!…in the Jan – Jun 2021 Mini Catalog.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Simply Potted Succulents Sneak Peek Thank You

Mornin’, y’all – hope you’re looking forward to a short week if you have to work!  If not – I hope you’re enjoying leftover Christmas dinner and the lights on your tree!  We “solved” our tree light issue by….just not turning them off!  We turn them to multi-colored when we go to bed – even from the living room the white lights are too bright in the bedroom for Wayne.  Me?  I’d probably string twinkle lights over my headboard and sleep with them on year round.  😉  Then I put them back on white when I get up!  Hopefully we can get a power adaptor before the next holiday tree-time!

Or…a new tree!

Speaking of trees – today’s card has no trees on it.  It has…succulents!  Simply Succulents, to be exact – cut out with the bundled Potted Succulents Dies.  I also used some Sand & Sea DSP to create a…desert feel for my thank you card.  Take a look-see:
