Just Hello!

Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Pretty Prints Hello There Card

Happy Happy Hawwwmp Day, y’all!  We’re back in “last gasp of summer” mode here – nice for a few hours in the morning, but then…channeling a SAUNA around lunch.  Yuk.  AND – it’s getting dark earlier and earlier.  DOUBLE YUK!  But – dark early means cooler days are coming – which I am looking forward to – I’m anxious to start griping about the COLD – not the hot! 🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️

My card today is not Christmas.  Nor Fall.  It’s all about gorgeous organic images of cool greenery and Calypso Coral-ery!  Yes – I’m referring to the wunnermus Pretty Prints DSP.  It plays a big role in the card – forming the base for the Nature’s Prints leaves – all cut with the bundled Natural Prints Dies.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Country Cottage Wreaths CAS Thank You Card

Good morning and welcome back to the work week.  And – the FIRST DAY of AUGUST!  What in the world?!?  How is it possible that the year is going so fast?  AND Sale-A-Bration?  Yep – we’re already half-way thru!  Yikes!

I saw a cool sketch at the Freshly Made Sketches challenge and my brain informed me that the right way to go was with the Cottage Wreaths bundle.  So…I did!  Take a look-see:

Stampin' Up! Country Cottage Wreaths CAS Thank You Card

And here’s the Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

And I used the color palette from the Color Throwdown challenge this week.

I started by embossing a Crumb Cake panel in the Timber 3D Embossing Folder and then I adhered it to the front of my Crumb Cake card base with Liquid Glue.

I cut three Very Vanilla squares using the next-to-largest Stylish Shapes die.

Stampin' Up! Country Cottage Wreaths CAS Thank You Card

On a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock, I stamped the wreath from the Cottage Wreaths set three times in Balmy Blue.  I stamped each wreath with the twig image in Crumb Cake – and cut them all out with the coordinating die in the Country Wreaths die set.

I adhered the three die cut wreaths to the three Very Vanilla squares with Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Country Cottage Wreaths CAS Thank You Card

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the top and bottom wreaths to the card front.

I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop the middle wreath on.

I used the little leaves dies – there are four of them! – in Country Wreaths to cut out four Balmy Blue leaves and then adhered them to the bottom corner of the middle wreath with Liquid Glue.

I tied a simple bow with two lengths of Very Vanilla Baker’s Twine and adhered it with a Glue Dot.

On a piece of Very Vanilla, I stamped the Cottage Wreaths sentiment in Balmy Blue and cut it out with the smallest little banner die from Stylish Shapes.

Stampin' Up! Country Cottage Wreaths CAS Thank You Card

I used double-stacked Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the sentiment over the bow, added a few Very Vanilla dots from the Classic Matte Dots pack – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped the Cottage Wreaths wreath in stamped-off-once Balmy Blue in the middle of a Very Vanilla panel.  I stamped the sentiment in the center in full-strength Balmy Blue – and added another Very Vanilla Classic Matte Dot.

Stampin' Up! Country Cottage Wreaths CAS Thank You Card

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Balmy Blue mat and into the Crumb Cake card base and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got the wreath – and a sentiment! – in Balmy Blue on the front…

Stampin' Up! Country Cottage Wreaths CAS Thank You Card

…and I used the little leaves stamp from Cottage Wreaths to stamp all over the envelope flap in Balmy Blue!

Et Voila!  I love the Cottage Wreath Bundle – the stamped images are gorgeous and the coordinating Country Wreaths dies make it so easy to cut them out – as well as other foliage for your projects!  And – what do you think of it in soft blues and creams!?  I sort of love it!

Finn Fan Fix 

We’re now officially Ooni Pizza Oven Snobs!

Oh my goodness, y’all!  We really liked our pizzas BEFORE – in the oven in the kitchen.

They took forever, though – even at 500F!

But NOW?!?  WOW!  This Ooni Karu is….AMAZEBALLS!

The men put it together yesterday morning…

Then we did the 30 min seasoning at full temp!

I put dough on in the morning and…we fired it up for dinner!

Pizza #1 – Ready to launch!

It was so cool to watch!  I even took a video – and yes, I sound like a goofus.  But….

And the results?!?

Perfection!  Crisp on the outside, soft on the inside.  Perfect!

They were SOOO much better than the ones from the oven – I didn’t think it would be THAT much different but…it sure is!

Only one problem that I could see.

I wanted to eat ALL of BOTH pizzas.

I didn’t.

But – I WANTED to for sure!!

Stampin’ Up! Rustic Hello Harvest Leaf Fall Sneak Peek Card

Good morning and welcome back to the work week!  I wish I could say that we’re back in the swing of it all but… we sort of aren’t!  It’s taking us a second to re-adjust to the routine.  We may or may not have spent yesterday watching the latest James Bond movie.  Which got exactly…NOTHING done! 🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️  Although I DID manage to make a pot of pinto beans with the ham we brought home from my Mom’s!  So…there’s that!

Today.  TODAY is the day we really get back to it –  I’m just sure of it!

I did manage to get off my hindquarters and make a card for you – I used one of my new goodies from the Jul – Dec 2022 Mini Catalog (coming in less than 2 weeks on 1 July!!) that had been waiting for me to get home to it, and was one of the ones I was especially excited about!  It’s the Hello Harvest Bundle and coordinating Rustic Hello DSP.  And you know how I feel about embossing folders so it should come as no surprise that I pulled out the new Leaf Fall 3D Embossing Folder! Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Awash in True Beauty & Full of Love Card

Good morning – it’s Friday!  T-1 to leave for Colorado day!  Too bad my get-it-done-list is still at T-6.  So…this will be a day of hustling and bustling and putting out my hair.  Which will be on fire! 😳😳😳😳

But – tomorrow will dawn and I’ll be on the road again!  Hopefully with everything in the car that needs to be in the car!  If not – I guess there’s a Walmart close by pretty much everywhere!  😂

Stampin’ Up! Perfectly Penciled & Sending Smiles Note to Say Hello

Good morning and happy Memorial Day.  I hope you get to enjoy the day with your family and friends – and spend a moment or three thinking of the men and women who never came home.

I have an admin note for you!  For those of you who do join or plan to join my Zoom the Craftroom sessions – I’m officially canceling today’s session!!  Between the holiday and folks having plans – and my ever GROWING list of things to do between now and Saturday – let’s just call it a day, shall we??  And – so that you can plan your week and month – let’s go ahead and cancel all Zoom the Craftroom sessions between now and the 20 June session, okay?  I’ll be out of town for a couple of weeks and don’t know what the internet will support.  So…rather than have everyone wondering where I am….I’m making the decision now!  Sorry for any disappointment, y’all!  I’ll be back on the 20th, though, so hope to see you then! 🙂

Now – my card today is one that I really like.  It’s got pretty flowers & pops of color from the Sending Smiles bundle (a heavy favorite for me!!) atop black-and-white Perfectly Penciled DSP.  Take a look-see:
