Stampin’ Up! Eclectic Eastern Medallion Video Sneak Peek

Good Sunday morning, y’all!  I’m working today – hope you’re not!

I had a lovely Saturday.  Met a new friend for lunch – we spent just the nicest two hours enjoying a wonderful meal (yea – I decided it would be a cheat day!) and a lovely breeze by the water.  We talked about stamping and dieting and living in Florida and books and traveling (and how much we both hate flying these days!).  She’s even read the series of books that I just started – and took a vacation to Ireland.  It was a thoroughly lovely time.  And – all because of Stampin’ Up!  Never would have met her otherwise! 🙂

So – as has become the norm, I’ll be live tonight at 8pm Eastern on my Stamps-N-Lingers Facebook Page.  We’re going to play with the pretty Eastern Medallion Thinlits and some Naturally Eclectic DSP.  I hope you’ll join me – bring your Thinlits and paper and Eastern Beauty stamp set and let’s play! Or just come to watch.  Here’s a sneaky tease…

Tomorrow’s post will have all the card cuts and products used, plus more pictures!

Hope to see you tonight! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Friendly Orange Blossoms for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop



Happy Thursday, y’all – and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!  It’s sketch week so be sure to hop thru all our blogs when you get done here and see how we all interpreted the challenge! 🙂

Speaking of – here it is:

I also played along with the Sunday Stamps color challenge…

We were to use at least 3 of the colors.  I think, using the Orange Blossom stamp set and a little bit of Wood Textures DSP that I did that.  And maybe a few more!  Take a look-see:

I started with a panel of Whisper White card stock and stamped a bunch of the pretty images from the new Orange Blossom stamp set all over it.  I used Flirty Flamingo for the large flowers – stamping it twice without re-inking.  I also used Pear Pizzazz, So Saffron, Peekaboo Peach and Sweet Sugarplum.  Once I had it stamped all over, I matted it on Sweet Sugarplum card stock.

My banner started with a piece of Sweet Sugarplum for the mat.  I used Paper Snips to make a banner end.  Then I cut a smaller piece of Wood Textures DSP and cut the banner ends in it, too.

Using a die from the Sweet & Sassy Framelits, I cut a heart in the Wood Textures DSP banner.

The sentiment is from the Orange Blossoms stamp set.  I inked just the word “Hey” in Sweet Sugarplum ink and stamped it on a scrap piece of Whisper White.  That piece of card stock got adhered to the Sweet Sugarplum banner so that the sentiment would show in the top of the heart cut out.

I used Stampin’ Dimensionals – regular and mini! – to pop the Wood Textures banner over the Sweet Sugarplum banner (making sure my “hey” showed!).  Then I used Liquid Glue to adhere the whole thing to the card front.

My banner sentiment is another word from the Orange Blossom stamp set, stamped in Flirty Flamingo on a  strip of Whisper White.  I cut a banner end with my Paper Snips, edged it with my Sweet Sugarplum Stampin’ Write Marker and then used Liquid Glue and a Stampin’ Dimensional to add it over the banners.

To finish it off, I took a large heart from the new Hearts & Stars Elements and colored the stripes with my Peekaboo Peach Marker.  I decided I wasn’t happy with that, so I went over the stripes again with my Flirty Flamingo marker.  I adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.  Finally, I added a bow from a piece of Peekaboo Peach 5/8″ Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon using a Glue Dot.

On the inside, I added some more of the Orange Blossom flowers in the corner of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped a Flirty Flamingo flower on a piece of Whisper White, fussy cut it and adhered it with Liquid Glue over the top.  And I added another little wooden heart that I’d colored in Peekaboo Peach.

I SNAILd the panel to a Sweet Sugarplum mat and into a Thick Whisper White card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Orange Blossom flowers on the front (I made a sticky note mask for the large flower to do these)….

…and even more on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Isn’t this a pretty little stamp set with more beautiful flowers?  I love the different images you can create – my favorite is the little yellow buds on the green stem.  I hope you like – and know you’re going to want this one in your toolbox!

Stampin’ Up! Triple Time Flirty Flowers Note Card

Happy Monday, y’all!  First day at work here in Florida – will start to get into the rhythm of work/card making/blogging.  And will hopefully be able to start figuring when I can do my Facebook Live videos!

Speaking of which – here’s the link to the video on YouTube.  If you were able to join me last night – thanks much, I really appreciate it!  If not – you can check out the how-to’s and where-for’s in the video!  I also gave everyone a peek of my hotel-room setup at the end.  Enjoy – and apologies for a few blurry spots and video freezes.  Hotel wi-fi…. 😉

This is the card we worked on last night.  It uses the so-cute new stamp set called Flirty Flowers.  And it’s done in all the new In Colors!  Take  a look-see:

The color scheme was inspired by the Fab Friday color challenge this week!

If you’ve never tried the Triple Time technique – be sure to watch the video – it explains it, and it’s really easy to do!  And, it has the added benefit of looking like it’s hard!  It’s an impressive card that’s sure to make the recipient think you’re a card-making genius.  You don’t have to tell them how easy it is! 🙂

All the stamped images on this one are from the Flirty Flowers stamp set.  The sentiment is stamped in Berry Burst.  The large flower was done with the Marker-to-Stamp technique with Powder Pink and Lemon Lime Twist.  The smallest flower is stamped in Tranquil Tide.

I’ve matted the card layers with Fresh Fig card stock, and used a piece of Thick Very Vanilla card stock for the card base.

On the inside of the card, I added a couple more of the Flirty Flowers image on a piece of Very Vanilla card stock.

It’s matted on Fresh Fig and then SNAILd into the card base.  I also SNAILd the card front on – it’s already got a double layer of Stampin’ Dimensionals – and the Thick Very Vanilla card base!

I repeated the Flirty Flowers image on the front of my Very Vanilla Medium Envelope…

…and on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Easy peasy!  And I’m just loving this Flirty Flowers stamp set – you should probably plan to see more of it in the near future!!  Hope you like!

Be sure to take advantage of my Ordering Special – only a few more days!  And there’s also the Host special from Stampin’ Up! – so this is a great time to be grabbing up all the pretties in the new catalog!

Stampin’ Up! Triple Time Flirty Flowers Sneak Peek

Mornin’ y’all – from Ft. Walton Beach!  I got here safely and in good time.  I checked out my “view” – the folks with the true water view paid a little more for their room than Uncle Sam was going to let me pay.  So… I got….


See it?  Look close – across the parking lot….thru the bank lot…yep.  There it is!! 🙂

Then I schlepped all my stuff up…

Took three trips – which I thought was pretty good, considering!

I started spreading it all out.  Here’s the before picture….

 

Tonight I’ll give you a quick tour of the end result!

And – I’ll be sharing how to make this card…

Ha!  Did you really think I was going to show you the whole thing?!?  Nope!

Join me tonight at 8pm eastern on my Facebook page for a live video to see this card in its entirety!  Here’s a link right to my Stamps-N-Lingers page.  And I’ll post all the card cuts and a link to the video tomorrow!  And probably a few pictures of “how to set up a stampin’ shop in a hotel”!!  🙂  

Hope to see you tonight!

Finn-Fan Fix…

I don’t have any new pictures today.

I have to share a sad thing, though.  After I got here, I FaceTimed with Wayne.

I wanted to say hi to Finn – so Wayne turned the camera/phone so Finn could see it and I said “Hi Finny!!  Hi!!”.  

He started running thru the house looking for me.

I almost cried.

He was looking everywhere.

And I was in the phone.

Which I think dog-eyes maybe can’t see.

I’m a bad mother…  😦 😦 😦

Stampin’ Up! Layers of Lovely Daisies!

Good morning, y’all!  Did you have fun yesterday when the new catalog went live in the Online Store??  I sure did.

My credit card, on the other hand, may not be thinking it was all that much fun!  Poor little dude got a work-out!! LOL.

My card today uses a fun set that carried over into this new catalog.  It’s called Layering Love and it’s a pretty one!  I also used some of my favorite new Designer Papers from the Delightful Daisy DSP and the Wood Textures DSP Stack.  Take a look-see:

My layout is from this week’s challenge at The Paper Players:

And my color scheme is from the Global Design Project challenge.

I started with a piece of Calypso Coral design paper from the new Delightful Daisy DSP and matted it on a piece of Basic Black card stock.

The horizontal strip, also from the Delightful Daisy DSP, is next and I decorated it with the new Ticket Tear Border Punch (Available now – I love being able to say that!!).  I cut both edges with the punch and then SNAILd it to a Basic Black mat and then onto the card front.  

For my sentiment, I used a piece of wood-grain paper from the Wood Textures DSP and stamped it with the sentiment from the Layering Love stamp set.  I colored the stamp directly with my Basic Black and Calypso Coral Stampin’ Write Markers.

To cut the Stitched Shapes rectangle, without an actual Stitched Shapes rectangle die, I used a square die and cut half at a time.  Line the die at the top of the sentiment, leaving the bottom portion hanging off the end of the platform and run it thru the Big Shot.  Then line up the “stitches” and repeat on the other hand.  My friend Amy did a quick video showing how to do it – which you can see right here.  🙂

With that done, I SNAILd the panel to its Basic Black mat and popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Calypso Coral heart Enamel Shapes and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added another Ticket Tear-punched piece of the Delightful Daisy DSP, matted on Basic Black, to a Very Vanilla panel. Then I stamped the tiny heart from the Layering Love set in Calypso Coral.

I SNAILd the panel to a Basic Black mat and into my Old Olive card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got a few more of the Layering Love hearts in Calypso Coral on the front…

…and a little more of the Delightful Daisy DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  It’s so easy to forget about the cool stamp sets that were in previous catalogs, what with the advent of all the new and exciting goodies!  But this is a great set, with really pretty sentiments in beautiful fonts!  And – of course – the paper.  The PAPER!!  Goodness me – so darned pretty!!!  Hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Freshly Elegant Medallions

Mornin’, y’all!  Like any three-day weekend, this one is flying by!  Hope you’re having a good one so far.

So – I’ve got some good news and some bad new for y’all.  Which one do you want first?

My choice is always to get the bad news out of the way first, so…

I know you’ve been watching the Delightful Daisy suite very closely – and no doubt are ready to order it just as soon as the catalog goes live next Thursday.  But.

It turns out that the Daisy Punch has been even more wildly popular than Stampin’ Up! could have anticipated!  And they anticipated high – believe me!  Because of this, the current supply of Daisy Punches has sold out.  To prevent this punch from being in a near-permanent backorder status for the first few months of the catalog, they’ve made the difficult decision to turn off ordering for the Daisy Punch beginning 1 June.  They won’t be accepting any additional orders for this punch until their first shipment arrives the week of June 26 June.  Ordering will be turned off for both the punch and the Daisy Delight Bundle (the Daisy Punch and coordinating stamp set).

So, even though the punch won’t be available for purchase on the 1st, it will be available later in June.  I’ll let y’all know just as soon as I see that the Daisy Punch and Daisy Delight stamp set bundle are available for ordering again.

The good news is that there’s about 200 pages of aweosme-ness in the new catalog, so…I feel pretty confident that you’ll be able to find something that will strike your fancy while you wait for the Daisy Punch!  I know I’ve got two packed pages of somethings to order on the first along with my share order!!  Good thing I’ll be getting that 20% discount!!

My card for today uses the Eastern Medallions Thinlits and the Eastern Beauty stamp set.  This card is what we’ll be making tonight on my Facebook Live video.  I’ll be live at my normal time of 8pm Eastern on my Stamps-N-Lingers Facebook page.  Take a look-see:

My inspiration for this card came from two places.

The first is this photo in The Card Concept challenge:

And I also drew some ideas from Rochelle Blok, the guest designer at the TGIF Challenges this week.

I do hope you’ll join me tonight!!

In this Annual Catalog, there are 16 new Designer Papers….14 new Embellishments…..and more new ribbons than I can count!!  If you were to buy one of each of them –  you’d spend over $600!  Shares are a great way to get a little of everything from the new Catalog!  You get a chance to “try before you buy”!

I’ve got 3 openings in my July – December Club.  The club will cover the new Annual Catalog and the fall-release of the 2017 Holiday Catalog!  You know you’re going to want to order lots of goodies from both catalogs – so why not get some Host Rewards at the same time??  

Here’s how it works….

You sign up for a 6 month term and commit to:

  • Placing a $25.00 minimum order by the 20th of each month

  • A $150.00 Workshop order during your host month
  • $15.00 minimum of Stampin’ Rewards dollars to spend on the exclusive Host Stamp Sets, or any other current Stampin’ Up! product during your host month
  • You earn TWO Peppermint Reward points for every $25 that you order on your Host Club Orders. So your $25.00 order earns TWO Peppermints every month, a $50 order earns 4 reward points, a $75 order earns you 6 reward points, etc. You’ll earn at least 12 reward points during your membership, building up your Peppermints towards FREE Items!
  • FREE monthly tutorial with 4-5 projects
  • FREE catalogs during your membership term

  • During your host month you’re welcome to gather extra orders to increase your host rewards (just give your friends the host code for their orders), it’s that easy!

Finn-Fan Fix…

My puppy is a very smart boy. 

Yesterday morning, in a fit of I-don’t-even-know, I mowed the arena.  Wayne had gone fishing and I was just waiting for the horses to finish eating.  Finny and I had done a few rounds already and I was bored with that.  So…I mowed!

It wasn’t too hot, but it wasn’t cool, either.  As I made my round and round and round on the mower, I realized Finny had left me.  

So – I whistled him up and here he came.  From the barn.

This happened a few times before I was finished mowing and went to put the mower away.

And look who I found!

Yep – chillaxin’ in the aisle, smack in front of the giant blowing fan.

He did rouse himself for a good game of play-in-the-hose while I rinsed off the mower.

No dummy is my Finny!

Stampin’ Up! Feathery Friendly Tabs & Squares!

Happy Long-Weekend, y’all!  Hope wherever you are will give you a lovely weekend to enjoy outdoors – and not surface-of-the-sun hot, either!  And, please, while you’re preparing for your family picnics and parties on Monday – take a moment to remember the folks still fighting the good fight so we can enjoy our weekend in safety and peace. 

So, the other day, when I made the sponged squares card, I actually got about 1/4 of a way thru the card I’m sharing with y’all today.  I had a concept in my head, but…it really needed a few extra colors (remember the sponged window card was working a Green/Gray/White color challenge.  You can see that one right here if you didn’t get to see it before.)  I finally gave up on it – at some point in the day, you have to cut your losses and drive on.  Or do your blog post at midnight! 😉

But – I held on to the squares I’d stamped and cut.  I was using the Host-exclusive stamp set called Feathery Friends and a little of the new Fresh Florals DSP Stack.  When I went to finish it, I added a few sentiment images from the new Tabs For Everything stamp set to make a pretty little card for y’all.  Take a look-see:

 

This sketch, from the CAS-ual Fridays blogspot, is one I’d been intrigued with since I saw it.

And I figured I’d play along with the Stamp Ink Paper challenge, too.  I mean – I’m a Card Maker.  And this was my choice, so… 🙂

To begin, I stamped the pretty little flower from the Feathery Friends stamp set in Tranquil Tide ink on Whisper White and cut it with the smallest Stitched Shapes square die (that’s about 1 1/8″ square).  I matted each square on a scalloped-edge square cut from a piece of Tranquil Tide paper in the new Fresh Florals DSP Stack.  I did that 8 times in all!

I lightly colored each flower with my Powder Pink Stampin’ Writes Marker – be careful doing this, the Tranquil Tide ink will bleed!  Then I used Liquid Glue to adhere each square to my Whisper White card front.  I left the center square open.

The center, sentiment, square is cut from Whisper White with a second Stitched Shapes Framelits die.  I stamped the little bird from Feathery Friends in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored it with my Tranquil Tide, Powder Pink and yes, Lemon-Lime Twist!!, Stampin’ Write Markers.

For my sentiment, I pulled a couple of words from the handy little Tabs For Everything (avail 1 June!) and stamped them in Tranquil Tide.  This is a photopolymer set, so it was easy to get the words right where I wanted them.

I matted the square on a scalloped-edge square of the Tranquil Tide Fresh Florals DSP and popped it over the top of the other squares with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered the panel to a Powder Pink mat and then wrapped a piece of Powder Pink 1/2″ Finely Woven Ribbon around it, securing it in the back with scotch tape.  Then I used another short length to tie a “faux bow” – which is just a tight knot around the first piece of ribbon, with the ends trimmed nicely.  And that was it for the card front.

On the inside, I stamped the flowers from Feathery Friends in Tranquil Tide a few times on a Whisper White panel.  Then I colored them with the Powder Pink Stampin’ Write Marker.

I SNAILd the panel to a Powder Pink mat and into my Tranquil Tide card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more of the Feathery Friends flowers across the front…

…and then I added a little more Tranquil Tide Fresh Florals DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I really love this kind of card – with the grid of images.  And I think this one, with the flowers from Feathery Friends, came out just right!  I hope you like!

Finn-Fan Fix…

Our days are driven by routine – it’s a by-product of having animals.  Dog goes out when I get up.

Dog comes in and has a nap.

We feed the horses at 8.  Run the dog around.  Play some bumper.  He goes for a pond.

Let the horses out.  Clean the stalls.

Back inside.  Mom starts her work day on the computer.

Cats beg for food.  

Dog eats cat food Mom throws for noisy cats.

Cat settles down for a snooze by the back door – especially when it’s a nice summer day and the door’s open.

That’s Leo.  He’s eyeballing some chipmunks and a few birds.

Finn – checks out breakfast and usually decides he’s not hungry yet.

Time to join the cat in the morning snooze.

That’s our morning,  

All the mornings!

Life is good.

Stampin’ Up! Colorful and Seasonal Tides for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop



Happy Thursday, y’all – and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!  It’s sketch week and I know all our ladies have made some beautiful projects for you.  Y’all be sure to hop thru all their blogs when you get done here! 🙂

Here’s our sketch…

I used kind of a plethora of goodies for this one – some available now and some next week!  I played with the Colorful Seasons stamp set and the Seasonal Layers Thinlits.  Added in a little Color Theory DSP.  Those are the things coming next week.  From the current catalog – and continuing next year – I used the Seaside TIEF and some High Tide.  Take a look-see:

I started with a double layer mat – one in Berry Burst (avail 1 June) and the second in Dapper Denim.  The bottom panel of the card front is a piece of Dapper Denim from the Color Theory DSP Stack.  First I cut the scallops using the edgelit die in the Seasonal Layers Thinlits, then I ran it thru the Big Shot in the Seaside TIEF.

I stamped the sentiment from Colorful Seasons in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  And then I had to “fix” it with my Stampin’ Write Marker.  If you make this card – don’t be like me!  Cut the scallop.  Stamp the sentiment.  Then emboss it in the Seaside TIEF.  Will be a much quicker route, I promise! 🙂

Next up, I made the top panel – starting with a piece of Crushed Curry paper from the Color Theory DSP.  I used my 1 1/2″ Circle Punch to make a stencil and – on the bottom edge of the DSP, sponged a Calypso Coral “sun”.  I pulled off the stencil and then continued with my almost-dry Sponge Dauber to add a “halo” of Calypso Coral around the circle.  

Using the grasses and birds images from the High Tide stamp set, I added them in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.

I built the card front by first adding the stamped Crushed Curry panel with Liquid Glue.  Then I added a strip of 5/8″ Burlap Ribbon – for the “beach” – with Liquid Glue.  Finally, I added the “ocean”.  

My chair is from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits.  First I stamped the Hardwood background image in Berry Burst on a piece of Berry Burst card stock, then cut the chair with the die from the Seasonal Layers.  I used Liquid Glue across the bottom of the chair and a few pieces of Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back of the chair and adhered it to the card front.  And the card front was done!

On the inside, I made another “sun” with my 1 1/2″ Circle Punch stencil in Calypso Coral on a Whisper White panel.  Then I added a second sentiment from Colorful Seasons in Tuxedo Black.

I double matted the panel on Dapper Denim and Berry Burst, then added it to my Basic Black card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another Calypso Coral sun and some High Tide birds and grasses on the front…

…and then I added a little more of the Dapper Denim paper from the Color Theory DSP to the envelope flap.  Just to do a little something different, I embossed it in the Seaside TIEF before I added it to the flap!

Et Voila!  I love the adirondack chair in the Seasonal Layers Thinlits, don’t you?  I think all the pieces and parts came together to make a pretty little beachside sunset scene!  Hope you like!

Finn-Fan Fix…

The past couple of days, when it’s been pretty hot, Finn has been availing himself of the golf cart – even in the morning.  

It’s not unheard of for us to make an entire round with him riding next to me.

Guess he figures the golf cart needs some exercise?? 🙂

Don’t get me wrong.

He’s not slacking off.

He’s got an eye peeled for squirrels, bunnies, bugs, ducks, airplanes, deer (oh, please let there be a deer, Mom!!!), sticks, rocks, chipmunks, butterflies, bees, frogs, snakes, Dad, ponies….you name it.  He’s watching with his eagle eyes.

And snaggle tooth.

Nothing escapes his notice.

Stampin’ Up! Eastern Palace for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop



Happy Thursday, y’all – and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!  Do you like our new header??  I think it’s gorgeous!  If you’ve been following along, you’ll know this is sketch week!  I’m excited to see the projects from our talented ladies-who-hop, and I know you are, too!

Here’s our sketch…

I wanted to showcase the Eastern Palace Suite for y’all today, since you’re all going to be able to start getting it for yourself on 1 May (that’s Monday!).  So that’s what I did.  Take a look-see:

 

I started with a mostly Very Vanilla pattern in the Eastern Palace Specialty DSP and SNAILd it to a Tranquil Tide mat.  Then I chose a Dapper Denim piece and adhered a smaller strip to the bottom of the panel.

I took a strip of Gold Foil and adhered it with Liquid Glue across the seam between the two DSP patterns.  And I made a narrower strip from one of the Gold Foil patterns in the set, snipped a banner in one end and adhered it over the Gold Foil strip.

For the sentiment and art focal point, I took a square of Gold Foil and used the dies from the Eastern Medallions Thinlits to cut the design.  These are three dies that nest inside each other and produce that beautiful cut-out!  

I inked up one of the curved sentiments in the Eastern Beauty stamp set with Basic Black Archival Ink and stamped it under the die cut.  Once the ink had dried, I popped the panel over the top of a square of Tranquil Tide with small pieces of Stampin’ Dimensionals.  The whole thing’s popped onto the card front with some more Dimensional and that was it for the card front.

On the inside, I stamped a second Eastern Beauty sentiment in Basic Black on a Very Vanilla panel.  I added an Eastern Gold Vinyl sticker around the sentiment and a second one across the bottom of the panel.

I SNAILd the panel to a Tranquil Tide mat and into my Very Vanilla Thick card stock card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Medium Very Vanilla Envelope got another of the pretty Eastern Gold Vinyl Stickers across the front…

…and I added a little more the Eastern Palace Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This is such a pretty suite of products – and you’re going to be able to grab up a bunch of the pieces and parts in some awesome bundles starting on Monday – and I’ll bring you more details about that in the next day or so.  Hope you like!
