Stampin’ UP! Mosaic Mood Daisy Lane Sneak Peek

Guess what DAY IT IS?!?  Yep!  You know it to be THAT DAY!

I’ve got a sneak peek for you today – we got the new Daisy Lane stamp set AND a pack of Mosaic Mood Specialty DSP as a little part of our “swag” at OnStage last weekend – as well as the new Timeless Label Punch (all of these will be available to customers on 4 Jun 19!).  So – since I’d been so excited to get these little goodies, I decided to share a project I made with them!  Take a look-see:

I took a little inspiration for some of the elements on the card from the samples in the new 2019-2020 Annual Catalog!  And – I let the theme from this week’s Just Us Girls Challenge give me a hand, too!

Before we get too far – check the Daisy Lane stamp set (coming on 4 Jun).  This one coordinates with the Daisy Punch (which you may already have – if you don’t, you can pick it up right now and be ready!) and…there’s a new MEDIUM DAISY PUNCH coming in the catalog!!  Whoo-hooo!

And check out this gorgeous Mosaic Mood Specialty DSP!  It’s got mosaic tile images with shiny accents and I love it already!

Okay – so let’s make a card!

I started with some Very Vanilla, matted on Soft Suede for the card front.  On top of that, I used Liquid Glue to adhere a square of the Mosaic Mood Specialty DSP (4 Jun availability).

For the art panel, I first used my Stamparatus to stamp a couple of leaves and stems from Daisy Lane in Mint Macaron on a Very Vanilla panel.  I also inked the smallest daisy image from Daisy Lane in Crushed Curry, stamped it off once, and added it a couple of times around the leaves.

Then I matted the panel on Soft Suede and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

On a separate piece of Very Vanilla, I stamped three large daisies and three medium daisies from Daisy Lane in Crushed Curry.  I punched the large ones with the Daisy Punch – and fussy cut the smaller ones.  In about a month, I’ll use the Medium Daisy Punch – and YOU SHOULD, TOO! 🙂

I built my flowers by adhering them together with a Stampin’ Dimensional – either regular size or mini.  Then I added a Gold Faceted Gem to the middle of each flower.

The sentiment, also from Daisy Lane, is stamped in Mint Macaron on Very Vanilla and cut out with the new Timeless Label Punch (4 Jun).  I added some small Daisy Lane daisies over top in stamped-off-once Crushed Curry.  Then I used my Soft Suede Stampin’ Write Marker to edge the label.

I created a “pot” with a strip of Soft Suede (for the top “rim”) and an angled piece that I also embossed in the Basket Weave Dynamic TIEF (carrying over!).  I adhered the pot to the panel with Liquid Glue and popped the “rim” on with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the stacked daisies and Stampin’ Dimensionals for the sentiment.  Then I added a Mint Macaron bow from Nature’s Twine and a final Gold Faceted Gem.  Then I fussy cut a few leaves from the Mosaic Mood Specialty DSP and stuck them in here and there with Liquid Glue to finish the card front.  Check that adorable bee!

On the inside, I used my Stamparatus to add a second sentiment from Daisy Lane in Mint Macaron on a Very Vanilla panel – then I added a stamped-off-once Crushed Curry daisy over top.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Soft Suede mat and into my Mint Macaron card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got more daisies on the front – I stamped the ones on the right side twice without re-inking, and the one on the left is stamped-off-once…

…and I added a little more Mosaic Mood Specialty DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voial!  Oh.  My.  Goodness!!  How awesome is this stamp set, y’all!??  And the beautiful Mosaic Mood Specialty DSP?  I mean seriously!  And the fact that we’re getting a new Medium Daisy Punch (and the current Daisy Punch AND Daisy Delight stamp sets are carrying over!!) means we’re going to have SO many options for creating gorgeous florals on our projects!  Get the Daisy Delight stamp set and Daisy Punch NOW and then add these new goodies to your wish list!

Carryover Clear-Mount and Wood-Mount Stamps

There are stamp sets that are currently offered in clear-mount or wood-mount (in the 2018–2019 Annual Catalog), that ARE carrying over – but are being transitioned to Cling Mount.

These transition sets that will be in the 2019–2020 annual catalog –  will continue to be offered in clear-mount and/or wood-mount until existing inventory has been depleted or until June 4, 2019 (whichever comes first).  If the inventory is depleted, you will be notified of the automatic switch to cling when placing an order for that stamp set. This means that you may end up purchasing select cling stamp sets (in carryover artwork) before they can be ordered from the catalog!  All carryover rubber stamp sets will be available in cling medium only (with the exception of background stamps in North America) beginning June 4, 2019.

Stampin’ Up! Seashells By The Bay

Good morning!  Welcome back to the work week.

And – the beginning of the end of Sale-A-Bration.  Can you even believe that?!?  If you don’t have all your goodies yet – be sure to snap them up this week – and get DOUBLE Peppermints from me at the same time.  Sort of a win-win, don’t you think?? 🙂

My By The Bay card today is one I wasn’t sure was ever going to do how I wanted it to do.  Especially after I did the inner liner and realized I’d made it in the portrait orientation.  Which was perfectly acceptable, except my card was in landscape, so…that pretty much wasn’t going to cut it!  But – I finally got it done – and I think it turned out pretty much how I thought it would.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Dear Doily Video Sneak Peek

Good morning, y’all!  It’s the weekend!  And it is – apparently! – a weekend of change!

So – I was SUPPOSED to be at work today but…found out yesterday that it’s going to be too windy to do our event today.  I sure didn’t think wind was going to be a thing for this test, but…whatever!  We’ve moved the whole day to tomorrow.  Which has it’s own issues – not least of which is that I’ll not be able to do our Sunday night video.

Well – not on SUNDAY, at least!  I really don’t want to miss my time with you guys, so we’re going to try to get together tonight!  Or – more accurately, I’ll be live on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page at 7pm Eastern (please note it’s a DAY early AND an HOUR early!!) – and hoping that you can all join me!

We’ll be making a fun little card using the Dear Doily stamp set.  Take a sneaky peek!

Stampin’ Up! Be Mine & We’ll Be So Hoppy Together!

One of my favorite things about where I live is the sheer volume of the frog song we get to hear every night.  Folks – they do NOT say ribbit!!  They speak about a 100 different frog languages and they let loose with joyful abandon every night.  I so look forward to the time of year we can sleep with the windows open so I can listen to them as I fall asleep.

Please do not take this to mean that I have, have had or will ever have a pet frog…Want to pick up and pet a frog…Want to touch a frog in any way.  I just like having them around so I can enjoy their musical talents! 😉

One of the most fun stamp sets in the first Sale-A-Bration release is, without a doubt, the So Hoppy Together set.

Those little frogs – who doesn’t love them!?

Well, I used that set – with the new Hop Around Framelits (which you’re going to be able to get on 1 March!) – and a little bit of Be Mine Stitched Framelits and…well.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Happiness Blooms Perfectly Paired

Good morning, you guys.  Hope you’ve had a good week and are ready for an even better weekend!

LAST weekend, one of my friends (Chris of the Matt and Chris twins I’ve told y’all about!) asked his sweet girlfriend to marry him and, not being a stupid girl – she said YES!!  Whoo-hoo!!  So – I needed to make a card for them – one not to froofy (for him), but….sweet enough for her!

The Happiness Blooms suite seemed like just the ticket, so – out it came!  And I used a sentiment that I pulled from the Happiness Blooms Memories & More Card Pack, plus one from the new Perfectly Paired stamp set.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Here Comes the Sun Let it Ride!

Happy Saturday, y’all!  Hope you’ve got some fun plans for the weekend.  We’re going to be cutting.  And chopping.

Yes, that’s right – all my Shares goodies arrived yesterday!  We got the tree and wreaths down and cleaned the house (thank God -and Wayne! – it was giving me panic knots in the my throat!).  And now – today and tomorrow are all about making big paper into smaller paper and long ribbons into shorter!  If you ordered a share – I’m hoping to get them in the mail on Monday or Tuesday! 🙂

 My Mom asked me for a card for a friend of hers who’s going thru a rough time right now – and wanted woodsy/mountainy.  Along with my shares goodies…I MIGHT have ordered a FEW more products from the new catalog – and I’ve used them today to make her card.  So…I actually used elements from both the Let It Ride stamp set and the Host set called Here Comes the Sun.  And…I also pulled in the Crackle Paint Background stamp to really send it over the top!  Take a look-see:
