Stampin’ Up! Many Messages and Lots of Heart Card

Good morning, y’all!  Are you hunkering down under the weight of snow and ice and bitter cold??  If so, I hope you’ve got power and water and heat.  And chocolate – chocolate is a pretty awesome winter-storm-survival food.

Yesterday, while a few of us were chatting and crafting on my Monday Zoom the Craftroom, I put together a pretty non-Mary kind of card.  In that…it’s not got a ton of layers.  And not a bow in sight!  But…I like how it turned out – and I think it would be a great card for a man!  It used a sentiment from my handy Many Messages bundle and a few Lots of Heart bundle hearts.  Take a look-see:

The layout and elements were inspired by the FUSION challenge this week.  The sketch side and, to some extent, the photo side! 🙂

I started with some light wood paper from the In Good Taste DSP and matted it on Mossy Meadow for the card front.

I took a second piece of the In Good Taste and made a banner with it using my Banner Triple Punch.

Using two of the heart dies in the Many Hearts die set (bundled with Lots of Heart), I cut a Mossy Meadow and a Gray Granite heart.  This pattern is one of the new 2021-2022 Neutrals 6″ x 6″ DSP pack – and you can get it for FREE when you join Stampin’ Up! before the end of Sale-A-Bration on 28 Feb.  And it’ll bring 160 of its friends (translation: you’ll get 200 SHEETS of new-design DSP!!).

I adhered the two hearts to the card front with Liquid Glue.

For the sentiment, I used the Many Messages stamp to stamp all those wonderful sentiments in Bumble Bee on Basic White and then cut them with the single big die in the bundled Messages Die.  Full disclosure:  I had this sentiment – and a bunch of others! – in my little tackle box from stamping and cutting them for a previous card!

I popped my sentiment onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals, added a Bumble Bee 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dot, and the card front was done.

Yep – done.  Set.  The.  Card.  Front.  Down!

On the inside, I inked the plaid heart from Lots of Heart in Mossy Meadow and stamped it in the corner of a Basic White panel.  I added a sentiment from Lots of Heart in Bumble Bee.  And another Bumble Bee enamel dot, too!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Mossy Meadow mat and into my Bumble Bee card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Basic White Medium Envelope got the plaid Lots of Heart heart on the front in Mossy Meadow…

…and more of the In Good Taste DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Simple.  Hardly any layers (easy to mail – you’re welcome!).  Not my normal card style by any stretch.  But…I really like how it turned out!  The two sets – Lots of Heart and Many Messages go together perfectly, don’t you think??

And don’t forget – there’s only 12 days left in Sale-A-Bration!  Which means…in THIRTEEN days….no more free 200 sheets of new DSP (that’s a $59 value – on top of the awesome Starter Kit goodness!) for joining the team!  Be sure to pull the trigger and get in on the great deal before it’s gone.  I’d love to have you on my team! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Welcoming Window Flower Box Birthday Card with Video Tutorial

Good morning and happy Friday!  Again.  Time she be a flying, huh?  Hard to believe how quickly it’s passing.  Sale-A-Bration is almost over (as is the Joining Special going on – you can the deets on that down below).  My Sticky Sweet Adhesive Ordering Special is flying by – don’t miss out!  And winter is…still here.  But – as I told my bestest friend the other day – it’ll be summer before you can blink!

And – with summer comes…flowers!! If you were able to join me for my YouTube live yesterday, I appreciate you spending part of your day with me – and you saw plenty of flowers!  If not, here’s the replay!

I pulled out my Welcoming Window stamp set and bundled Window Flower Box Dies to make this pretty scene – all decked out for SpringI  The Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder helped me create a “stucco wall” and some True Love DSP gave me a floral foundation on which to build!  Take a look-see:

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

And the color palette is from the Color Throwdown challenge.

I started with a piece – my FAVE design! – of the True Love DSP that I matted on Poppy Parade for the card front.  Then I embossed a smaller panel of Basic White in the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder, matted it on Poppy Parade and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

On another piece of Basic White, I stamped one of the floral images from Welcoming Window four times in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I used the coordinating flower stamp and stamped two of them in Poppy Parade and two in Flirty Flamingo.  Then I cut them out with the die in the Window Flower Box Die set.  I also stamped a pitcher from the set – in Flirty Flamingo and cut it out with its die.

Using the window frame, shutters and window box dies in the set, I cut Basic Black pieces.

To create the window element, I cut a small piece of Basic White (sized to fit behind the window frame) and adhered the pitcher and one of the Poppy Parade flower die cuts to it.  I trimmed the excess with my Paper Snips, then popped the window frame on top with Black Stampin’ Dimensionals (that I’d cut down to be quite narrow strips!).

I adhered the window box die cut near the bottom of the embossed front panel with Liquid Glue – then added the window and shutters.  Finally, I used Liquid Glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere three of the flower die cuts.

I stamped a sentiment from Welcoming Window in Poppy Parade on a narrow strip of Basic White, snipped some banner ends and popped it over the flower box with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped a second sentiment from Welcoming Window in Poppy Parade on a Basic White Panel.  Then I added the little corner image in Tuxedo Black and the pitcher and flowers in Flirty Flamingo, Tuxedo Black and Poppy Parade.

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

My Basic White Medium Envelope got the pitcher and flowers – plus the little corner image! – on the front…

…and more of the pretty True Love DSP on the envelope flap.

Et voila!  How much fun is this Welcoming Window stamp set and bundled Window Flower Box Dies?  I can think of so many ways to use all the wonderful dies and stamped images to create cards for any occasion, can’t you??  And I love it in this color palette – with the True Love DSP lending a beautiful floral background!

I hope you like!

Stamps-N-Lingers Ordering Special

My annual Sticky Sweet Adhesives ordering special is back for a limited time!

For all orders of $50 or greater (before shipping and taxes) that has my current host code applied or for individual orders of $150 or greater placed through me between now and midnight MT on Sunday, 14 Feb, you’ll get your choice of a free adhesive!

This can be anything that Stampin’ Up! sells that could be used as an adhesive – that assists you in using adhesive – or decorates adhesive!! And for the adhesives that are $5 or under, two packs will equal one choice (see the items with the (2) on the list below) so if you select those, you’ll get double…and who doesn’t like DOUBLE?!!

The adhesive will be in addition to the normal thank you gift that I order for you!! Plus, since your order will be over $50, you’ll earn Sale-A-Bration item(s) too. A big double whoo-hoo for more free goodies!!

***Please note, if your order is over $150, do not apply a host code. If you apply a host code to your order, it’ll take away your host benefits and nobody thinks that’s a good idea! Never fear, though, you’ll still be eligible for the free gift and free adhesive offer!

Let me know if you have any questions and Happy Shopping and sticking!!

Finn Fan Fix 

So – I mentioned on my video yesterday that I was taking Katy to the vet right after for her pain medicine shot.  That’s really getting to be a frequent occurrence – like…every couple of weeks.  That, coupled with her 1 pound weight loss between the last visit and yesterday is…worrisome.  I feel the shoe getting ready to drop, y’all. 🙁  We’re going to keep doing what we can do to get food in her (we’ve got a pill to give her every 3 days to bump her appetite – I KNOW she will love that so much) and keep her comfortable.  But time is passing too quickly, I fear.

Anywho – sorry.  Her brother heard that there was a trip afoot AND that it was to his doctor (whom he LOVELOVELOVES).  So – he gave me the lips and persuaded me that he REALLYREALLYREALLYDIDWANTTORIDEWITH!  Even after I explained that he’d have to wait in the car with me. 😉

So – off we went.

HE loves to ride (a well-established factoid).  Katy, on the other hand, most assuredly DOESNOT!  And makes that painfully and annoyingly obvious by screaming her unhappiness at the top of her lungs all the way there and again all the way back.

I figure Finn must be bilingual – cuz he sure appeared to be able to follow her message.

But…it DOES confuse him.  Mom?  What the heck is wrong with her.  WE’REINTHECARANDIT’SAWESOMEAWESOMEAWESOME!!!

HE was the one who wasn’t happy when the tech came out TWICE and he didn’t get to go in AT ALL!

Total bait-and-switch!  😉

Stampin’ Up! Heal Your Heart Paper Blooms 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 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!

We’re all playing with Sale-A-Bration products today and I selected the Heal Your Heart stamp set and the pretty Paper Blooms DSP .  These are both freebies at the $50 level – meaning when you spend $50 (before shipping & tax) you could select either of these products.  Now – fun fact – the Paper Blooms DSP coordinates with the In Bloom Bundle in the Jan – Jun 2021 Mini Catalog.  So….I called that SAB-Adjacent and used it in my card, too!  Take a look-see:

Here’s our challenge badge!

And – I also let the TGIF Challenge give me a hand!

I selected a card on page 3 of the Sale-A-Bration catalog as my inspiration!

I started with a piece of Paper Blooms DSP that I matted on Night of Navy for the card front.  Then I matted a piece of Basic White on Night of Navy and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I used a few of the fun stitched dies in the Pierced Blooms set to cut out some of the flowers in the Paper Blooms DSP.  AND – I used some leaves and flower dies to cut flowers from the DSP in Petal Pink, Soft Sea Foam and Night of Navy.  There’s a design that has big bold circles of color – and you just cut your shapes right out of them!.

Finally, I cut some leaves from Soft Sea Foam cardstock.

On a piece of Soft Sea Foam, I stamped the Heal Your Heart sentiment in Night of Navy and cut it with the label die in Pierced Blooms.  Then I was ready to assemble my collage! 🙂

I started by adhering leaves and a flower with Liquid Glue.  Then I added a Gold Hoop Embellishment with a couple of Glue Dots.

I popped the sentiment on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and kept adding flowers and leaves.  It looked like it needed a bow – so I cut one with the Pierced Blooms die – using the Petal Pink circle of color on the Paper Blooms DSP.  Then I added it with a little Liquid Glue.

I adhered a few little flowers here and there around the collage.

Because I could and I love them so much, I added Champagne Rhinestones to the flower centers – and the center of the bow – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped three In Bloom flowers in Petal Pink on a Basic White panel.  I added a couple of Soft Sea Foam stems and some Night of Navy flower centers.  And…Champagne Rhinestones!  Again…because I COULD! 🙂

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Night of Navy mat and into my Soft Sea Foam card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Basic White Medium Envelope got more In Bloom flowers on the front…

…and a little more of the Paper Blooms DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Isn’t this Paper Blooms DSP pretty?  And the fact that you can cut stitched flowers from it using the Pierced Blooms die set (bundled with the In Bloom stamp set) is a really happy bonus!

And…Heal Your Heart remains one of my favorite sentiment sets!!

I hope you like!

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

Stampin’ Up! CAS Berry Delightful Blessings

Mornin’, y’all!  How goes your week?  We’re enjoying a little warm-snap – which is lovely.  Wayne’s been working up a storm and has 11 of our 12 new barn roll-up doors on – which will be AWESOME – cuz…supposed to be back down into the high 20’s on Thursday! 😉

I have a clean-and-simple card for you today.

I know – I know.  Not at all what you expect from me, right?  Well – hang on, cuz…I think you’ll like it as much as I do.  It perfectly showcases the gorgeous Berry Blessings Bundle – which you can get for FREE during Sale-a-Bration with a $100 order (not including shipping & tax).  Take a look-see:

See?  Summer-on-a-card! 🙂

The layout is an interesting one from the MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge.

This is a PERFECT little card to use up scraps that you’ve got sitting around.  And your Stamparatus if you wanted to make multiples! 🙂

I started by cutting a piece of the Berry Delightful DSP into three 1/2″ wide strips.  Then I matted each of them on 5/8″ wide Granny Apple Green.  These started out at about 4″ – and then got trimmed down.

I pulled out a Basic White panel and arranged my three matted-strips in place – keeping them in order so the pattern would match up.  Then, using them as reference, I stamped the Berry Blessings sentiment in Poppy Parade.

I adhered the matted strips in place with Liquid Glue.  Then, using my Paper Trimmer – I cut the excess off the right side of the panel.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Granny Apple Green mat.

And….uhm….the card front was done! 😉

On the inside, I used Granny Apple Green to stamp the outline leaves images from Berry Blessings, then filled them with Granny Apple Green.  I also stamped a couple of stems.  Then I added Poppy Parade berry outlines and fills.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Granny Apple Green 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 more Berry Blessings berries and leaves on the front…

…and more of the wunnermus Berry Delightful DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  There is truly NOTHING to not-love about this amazing Berry Blessings Bundle, right?  It’s really stunning – with the Berry Delightful DSP bringing summer cheer to all your projects!!

I hope you like and are figuring how to add this bundle to your stash (if you haven’t already!).

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

Finn doesn’t always get on the sofa.

Well – not when I’m on it.  He’s almost always on it in the morning. 😉

But, the other night, he hopped up and – apparently – had something he wanted to discuss.

But – it turned out all he really wanted to do was “help” me work on my blog! 🙂

Looks like he approves of my card!

Stampin’ Up! A Wrapped Flowers Bouquet with Video Tutorial

Happy half-way-thru-the-weekend day, y’all!  Hope it’s been a good one for you!  Yesterday, I got half of my gardens “turned” and ready for amending with some compost to give them a little boost before spring planting time comes.  And I’ve got my seed starting stuff ready to seed start.  So – soon I’ll have my grow light working on my kitchen island and we’ll see what sprouts! I love this time of year!! 🙂

I’ve got a spring-y card for you today and I showed how to make it last night on my Facebook live video.  If you were able to spend some of your weekend with me, I appreciate it!  If not, here’s the replay on YouTube!

The new Wrapped Flowers bundle – which includes the Wrapped Flowers die set (that makes the fun “newspaper wrapper”! – is for sure one of the more beautiful sets in the new Jan – Jun 2021 Mini Catalog.  I used it to make a love-themed card for friends or family.  Take a look-see:

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

And the color scheme is from CAS Colours & Sketches.

And the love-theme fits perfectly with the Global Design Project theme challenge.

I started with a piece of Basic White card stock that I embossed in the Scripty 3D Embossing Folder.  Then I cut the largest oval Stitched Shapes Die from the center.  I cut the largest scalloped oval from the Ovals Layering Dies from Old Olive card stock and matted the white oval on it with Liquid Glue.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to an Old Olive mat – then popped the matted oval back in place with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut a piece of Crushed Curry Regals 6″ x 6″ DSP with the next-to-smallest rectangle Stitched So Sweetly die, cut it in half – and slid the halves under the popped up oval, adhering them with Liquid Glue.

On a piece of Basic White, using my Stamparatus, I stamped the newsprint image from the Wrapped Bouquet Die Set twice in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  Then I cut it with the second-to-smallest rectangle in Stitched So Sweetly.  I used a Blending Brush to sponge the die cut with Smoky Slate ink.

I crinkled the die cut a bit to weather it – then adhered it with Liquid Glue.

On another piece of Basic White, I used my Stamparatus to stamp the smaller floral image from Wrapped Bouquet in Tuxedo Black and cut it with the die in Wrapped Flowers.  I colored the image with my Melon Mambo and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends and my Crushed Curry Stampin’ Write Marker.

For the wrapper – I stamped the newsprint image in Tuxedo Black on Basic White and cut it with the square die in Wrapped Flowers. Then I turned it over and stamped the back with the newsprint image.  I sponged both sides in Smoky Slate with my Blending Brush and then used the score lines (from the die) to fold it into a “wrapper”.

I used a couple of Glue Dots to hold the wrapper closed – and then to adhere the bouquet inside the wrapper.

On a piece of Basic White – I stamped the Wrapped Bouquet sentiment in Crushed Curry.  Then I cut it with the little tag die in Wrapped Flowers.  I also cut the same Crushed Curry Regals 6″ x 6″ DSP with the tag die.

I used my Dark Old Olive Stampin Blend to color a length of Linen Thread.  I adhered the thread on the back of the “wrapper” with a Glue Dot, threaded the two little tags onto it and tied a bow.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the wrapped bouquet to the card front and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped a second Wrapped Bouquet sentiment in Crushed Curry on Basic White.  I added the floral image in the corner in Smoky Slate and colored it as I’d done the image on the front of the card.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to an Old Olive mat and into my Crushed Curry card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Basic White Medium Envelope got the Wrapped Bouquet image on the front…

…and more of the Crushed Curry Regals 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap.

Et voila!  Okay – this is silly, but whenever I look at this Wrapped Bouquet flower with it’s sweet Wrapped Flowers “newspaper” wrapper, I think of Eliza Doolittle in My Fair Lady.  No?  Just me?  Well – whatever it makes YOU think of….I think you’re going to really have fun with this bundle!!

I hope you like!

Sometimes, when you’re trying to sleep on non-purpose-built furniture, you have to…improvise and overcome.

It often requires some judicial tucking and folding of paws – and the use of a handy exercise trampoline.

You know – for the overflow.

I mean – why not?  MOM pretty obviously isn’t going to use it! 😉

Stampin’ Up! Snailed It Pop Up Fun Fold with Video Tutorial

Good morning and happy Friday!  Hoping that your week went well – and that you’re ready for a weekend.

I’ve got a fun fun-fold for you today and, if you were able to join me for my YouTube live yesterday, I appreciate you spending part of your day with me!  If not, here’s the replay!

Note – my internet did me wrong yesterday (thank you, XFinity) and this ended up being a two-parter.  So – when you hit the end of Part 1 – here’s the link to Part 2! 🙂

I am loving the Snailed It Suite – with the bundled Snail Dies and fun Snail Mail DSP – WAAAAY more than I thought I would when I first saw it in the catalog – it’s just so stinkin’ cute!  And I love a good fun-fold, so…I saw Lisa Curcio’s pop-up card and used her mechanism to create my own using this fun suite.  Take a look-see:

The layout for the front of this card was inspired by this week’s Sunday Stamps challenge.

I started by adhering a piece of Snail Mail DSP to a Bermuda Bay mat for the card front.  Then I used the largest rectangle in the Stitched So Sweetly dies to cut a second design, which I adhered to the card front with Liquid Glue.

On a piece of Basic White, using my Stamparatus, I stamped the cool mushroom (or…are they toadstools?!?) image from Snailed It in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  Then I cut it with the die from the bundled Snail Die set.

I colored the image with my Light Bermuda Bay and Real Red Stampin’ Write Markers, and both of the Daffodil Delight Markers.  Then I popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

For the sentiment, I stamped the word bubble image from Snailed It in Real Red on Basic White – then added the sentiment in Bermuda Bay.  I cut it with the matching die in the Snail Dies and popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside, I used Tear-and-Tape Adhesive to create the 3/4″ x 3/4″ box mechanism that makes the Pop-up part of the pop-up card work!  It started with a 3 1/2″ x 4 1/4″ piece of Real Red, scored at 3/4″, 1 1/2″, 2 1/4″ and 3″ along the shorter side.  Then it’s adhered into the box with the Tear-and-Tape.

I also used Tear-and-Tape to secure it inside the card (this is all in Part 1 of the video!).  Then I used Liquid Glue to adhere a strip of the Snail Mail DSP to the front of the box.

I adhered a Bermuda Bay-matted piece of Snail Mail DSP to the top of the card inside, then added a fussy cut snail from the DSP.

I used a die in the Snail Dies to cut the little pink snail – and fussy cut some shrooms – then adhered them all to the front of the box-mechanism.  I created – if you will – a snail-o-rama…. 😉

I repeated the mushroom image from the front of the card on a Basic White panel, matted it on Bermuda Bay and then into the card.  The card front is also adhered with Liquid Glue.  Some white and red Resin Hearts finished it all off!

My Basic White Medium Envelope got the Snailed It mushrooms on the front…

…and more of the Snail Mail DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  It’s pretty hard to NOT be loving this Snailed It bundle – with the Snail Dies letting you cut the images straight from the Snail Mail DSP!!  And they’re all just so danged cute!

And – on a fun-fold?!  Yes, please!  I hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix 

When I was pulling hay last night, I looked up to see…

I asked him what he was doing.

No – he didn’t answer me.

Hello?  He’s a dog, y’all! 😉

So I did some figuring out.

That is a perfect perch for him to keep an eye on me – in the horse side of the barn – AND keep his eye out for his Dad.

Wayne had gone in the shop.  There’s a door on the end of the barn that he COULD go out.  And if he snuck out he MIGHT get the golf cart and go somewhere!

Pretty smart of Finn, really.

I mean – if that’s it.

Could have just been where he got tired and decided to sit down and wait.

Stampin’ Up! Hydrangea Haven Hill Thanks!

Hey y’all – happy Tuesday!  Hope your week is going well.  Just a quick reminder that TOMORROW is the very last day to get in on my Special Bundles from the new Jan – Jun 2021 Mini Catalog!  Don’t miss out – you can check them all out right here.

My card for today uses the Hydrangea Haven Bundle and coordinating Hydrangea Hill DSP (conveniently available in Bundle #4!) to make a thank you card.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one comes from this week’s Fab Friday challenge.

I started with a piece of Purple Posy card stock for the card base.  On the front, in Highland Heather ink, I stamped one of the Hydrangea Haven flower outline images all over the front.  Then I used the matching fill image in stamped-off-once Highland Heather.  In between the flowers, I stamped the Hydrangea Haven thank you sentiment in Misty Moonlight.

I used the largest rectangle die in the Stitched So Sweetly die set to cut two pieces of Hydrangea Hill DSP.  I adhered the bottom panel with Liquid Glue and the top with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut a third design from Hydrangea Hill DSP with the next-to-smallest rectangle die from Stitched So Sweetly and adhered it with Liquid Glue.

I adhered a Gold Hoop with a Glue Dot (under the right side – where it would be hidden by the sentiment).  Then I used a Glue Dot to adhere a bow that I’d tied with two pieces of Misty Moonlight/Silver Baker’s Twine from the Flowers for Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack.

I stamped the Hydrangea Haven sentiment in Misty Moonlight on Basic White and cut it with the die in the Hydrangea Dies.  Then I used double stacks of Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop it over the bow.

I added a few Seaside Spray Pastel Pearls and the card front was done.

On the inside, I stamped a second Hydrangea Haven sentiment in Misty Moonlight onto a Basic White panel.  In the corner, I added the flower in Highland Heather and stamped-off-once Highland Heather.  I also inked part of a stem from the Hydrangea Haven set in Mossy Meadow – stamped it off once – and added it.  Then I added the outline leaves in Mossy Meadow – and the fills in stamped-off-once Mossy Meadow.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Seaside Spray mat and into the card base and the card was done!

My Basic White Medium Envelope got the Hydrangea Haven flower, stem and leaves on the front…

…and more of the Hydrangea Hill DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila! Is this bundle not wonderful??  It’s amazing even if you DON’T make the gorgeous die cut flower like I did on this card!

And there is little doubt but that the Hydrangea Hill DSP is….STUNNING!! 🙂

I hope you like!

If you’d like to recreate these cards, all the products and card cuts are listed below!

Finn Fan Fix 

Finn has a skill.

Okay – he’s got a few skills, but this one…

If I didn’t know for sure that there are NO mirrors at his height – I’d say he practiced this in front of one every day until he got it down to a science.

It’s called…Fun With Paws.  Or…how to get cute without looking like you’re even trying.

We see this behavior when he goes to bed at night – and sometimes just when he goes into the kennel during the day.

He walks in – flops in the far corner and – instantly arranges his paws to be totally adorable.

Case in point.

Stampin’ Up! Sweet Ice Cream Thank You With Sprinkles!

Happy Holiday Monday, y’all!  If you’re working today – I hope it’s in your pajamas!  If you did have to do yourself up – I hope it was only from the WAIST up – and that you’re rocking pajama bottoms! 🙂

I have a sweet thank you card for you today – that will make you long for summer!  Or…eating ice cream in the dead of winter.  Whatever works for you!  My theory is – as long as the heat’s working in the house – ice cream is on the table!  And this triple scoop cone – from the Sweet Ice Cream Bundle and Ice Cream Corner DSP – is sure to give you a hankering. 🙂 Take a look-see:

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

And I played along at the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge, too!

I started with some sprinkle-strewn paper from the Ice Cream Corner DSP that I matted on Cinnamon Cider for the card front.

Next up, I used the next-to-largest rectangle in the Stitched So Sweetly die set to cut some cone-designed paper from the Ice Cream Corner DSP – that I adhered to the card front with Liquid Glue.

The next layer is Basic White – cut with the largest of the rectangles in the Stitched So Sweetly set.  Man – I LOVE this die set! 😉

On the side, at a jaunty angle, I stamped the sentiment from Sweet Ice Cream in Cinnamon Cider.  Then I adhered the panel to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I used the Ice Cream Cone Builder Punch to make my ice cream cone – and more of the Ice Cream Corner DSP.  First, I punched the cone itself from the cone-design paper – and adhered it to the white panel with Liquid Glue.

I punched three scoops using the punch from a few different pieces of the DSP – see all those splotchy looking shapes? – they’re perfect for making ice cream!

I adhered the bottom scoop with Liquid Glue and the next two with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Before I added the top Purple Posy scoop (Lavender Honey ice cream – I’m pretty sure!) – I stamped the sprinkles image from Sweet Ice Cream in stamped-off-once Highland Heather ink.

I added a couple three Purple Posy dots from the Playing With Patterns Resin Dots – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped a second Sweet Ice Cream sentiment in Cinnamon Cider on a piece of Basic White.  In the corner – I stamped the cone – and the cone-detail! – in Cinnamon Cider.  Bermuda Bay is the scoop color this time – with Bermuda Bay sprinkles!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Cinnamon Cider mat and into my Bermuda Bay card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Basic White Medium Envelope got another Bermuda Bay ice cream cone on the front…

…and more of the Ice Cream Corner DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Are you hungry for some ice cream??  Not gonna lie – I could eat a cone myself!  This Sweet Ice Cream Bundle – with the Ice Cream Cone Builder Punch – works so perfectly with the Ice Cream Corner DSP to create some yummy frozen treats!

I hope you like! 🙂

If you’d like to recreate these cards, all the products and card cuts are listed below!

Finn Fan Fix 

We ran out of Skinny Pop.

Which is hard cuz we buy it by the gross.

Literally.

Okay – maybe not LITERALLY.  BUT – if it goes on sale at Sam’s or Costco – and there’s a limit of….10….then…guess how many we walk out the door with?? 😉

So.  I saw Skinny Pop microwave version at the grocery store and figured it would be a suitable sub.

Sidebar: it’s not.

The other night, I had a bag and when I finished I set it on the sofa next to me.

The man oh-so-casually hopped up to settle in at the other end of the sofa.

This is a hard one, Mom.

Anyone want to speculate on what happened next? 😉
