Stampin’ Up! Enjoy Life on Garden Impressions

Good morning, my peeps!  THIS IS A BIG BIG DAY!!

No – not cuz it’s Friday (although that’s pretty cool, too!).  Nope – it’s a BIG DAY because today the new 2018-2019 Annual Catalog goes live!!

The Online Store will be down today until around noon Mountain Time – so…patience, Padawan….patience!  Once it goes live, remember that the Stampin’ Blends in the new colors won’t be available just yet – although the current color Blends WILL be!  And – the Big Plans Planner Kit (Item 146859) and Big Plans Planner Kit Refill (Item 146861) won’t be available until 11 Jun.  Everything else will FINALLY be yours to choose – so gird those credit cards and have fun!

I’m still taking orders for the new and In Color Bundles – they’ll help you save a little stress on that aforementioned credit card (and have it to spend on even more fun stuff!!).  So if you’re wanting one of those, check them out below and get your order in!

Now.  Let’s have a card, shall we? 🙂

I used the super pretty Enjoy Life stamp set and paired it with my favorite Garden Impressions DSP design.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! March Paper Pumpkin Sneak Peek and an Alternative!

Happy Friday, y’all!  Another weekend looms and hopefully it will be a nice one!  We’ve had a bit of a cold snap here – ever hear of “Dogwood Winter”??  Yea.  Neither had I, but it appears to be a “thing” here in Georgia.  The Dogwoods bloom and we have another little bout of “winter”.  Hence…Dogwood Winter.

Who knew??

So – I got my March Paper Pumpkin the other day and pulled all the pieces and parts out.

It’s pretty gorgeous, y’all!

Instead of making the kit per the directions, I decided to make an alternative card with some of those wonderful elements – including the “special gift”!  And I added in a little embossing with the Petal Pair TIEF (free now during SAB with a $50 purchase!).  Take a look-see:

Now – if you want to see the May Good Things Grow kit as it was “planned” – here’s a quick video!  If you want to remain surprised when you open yours, scroll right on by! 🙂 Continue reading

Stampin’ Up! Blossoming Baskets and Butterflies

Happy Happy Hawwwmp Day, y’all!  How’s the week going so far?

This card is one we made at our team meeting on Sunday!  I didn’t get it finished at the meeting, so I brought it home.  And made a few little changes from the original card.  It uses one of the coolest of the free Sale-A-Bration goodies – the Blossoming Basket bundle (available with a $100 purchase!).  Take a look-see:

We started with a Whisper White panel that we matted on Calypso Coral for the card front.  Then we adhered a Crumb Cake panel that was embossed in the Basket Weave Dynamic TIEF! Continue reading

Stampin’ Up! Hanging Garden Charming Cafe for Stamp Ink Paper #136

Happy Tuesday, y’all – and welcome to another Stamp Ink Paper challenge!  

We were playing with a theme this week – called Cabin Fever.  As I thought of what to do for y’all to embody this theme – my eye fell upon the growing stack of seed catalogs that come this time of year!  And I knew – vegetables!  This is the time of year when it’s still too cold to start those gardens – but we want to – so badly!! I don’t have a set filled with tomato, pepper and squash plants – so, I pulled out a couple of pretty stamp sets that embody the beauty of flowers (and the butterflies that flock to them!) in Spring – Hanging Garden and the Charming Cafe bundle. Take a look-see:

As I mentioned, the Stamp Ink Paper Challenge #136 this week is all about Cabin Fever.  What makes you itch to get outside before Winter is even over?  Come and play along, won’t you?!  The winners this month will be in the running to be a Guest Designer on our challenge! 🙂 Continue reading

Stampin’ Up! Heart Happiness Petal Palette

Mornin’, y’all!  Hope you’ve got a good weekend ahead of you!  Ours is a little mundane – but there’s goodness in mundane, isn’t there?  Call it routine, call it a rut – or call it…just life!  It’s a good thing to have and that’s what we’re going to have some of this weekend – just life!  Here’s hoping the same for you!

My card for today would be perfect to send to your best friend, your Mom, your sister – pretty much anyone that you’re grateful is in your life.  It uses the so-pretty Heart Happiness stamp set and a sentiment (plus a few other goodies) from the Petal Palette bundle.  Take a look-see:

I used a sketch, color and inspiration photo challenge to help me with this one.  The first, a sketch challenge from the Freshly Made Sketches, lent a hand with the layout. Continue reading
