Stampin’ Up! Happiness Surrounds Your Day!

Happy weekend, y’all!  Hope you’ve got something fun planned.

I have a plane flight planned.  Which – is NOT fun.  Not in any way that you slice it.  Tomorrow’ll be a 12 hour day to get back to Atlanta.  Bleh bleh bleh.  But we’ve had a great visit and gotten done all the things we needed to do while I was here.  So – bonus!

But – expectation management:  I will NOT be doing a Facebook live tomorrow – so sorry!  I don’t even land in Atlanta until a little after 5, so…just can’t do it, y’all!  I’ll be back next weekend, I promise!!

Let’s not think about that unpleasantness right now, though, shall we?  Instead, let’s take a look at a card that comes from the second stamp set in the upcoming Snowflake Showcase (available 1 Nov – 30 Nov 18).  This is the Happiness Surrounds stamp set and…it gives a completely different look from the Snow Is Glistening set I used yesterday.  Take a look-see:

Happy 4th of July, y’all!  Hope you’ve got a fun day planned – and that you’ll stay safe.  And take a moment to thank those who fight for the independence we’re celebrating today. 🙂

I made a quick card to celebrate the day – or an appropriate achievement!  It uses the new Bokeh Dots stamp set and the Celebrate You Thinlits.  And…new Embossing Powders in the 2018-2020 In Colors.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Dandelion Wishes for the Crazy Crafter’s Blog Hop!

Hey, y’all!  It’s way later on a Saturday (or any day, for that matter!) than you’re used to seeing me, but…I was tickled (and…amazed!!) to be invited by my friend Kylie Bertucci to be the guest on the Crazy Crafters Blog Hop!

Of course I said of course!! 🙂

For these hops, everyone who plays along CASEs a card they find on my blog.  Including me!  So – I went thru some past posts and found one that really appealed to me.  I loved the DSP and stamped flowers and the layout!

And then I CASE’d it with current goodies!  The centerpiece is the new Dandelion Wishes stamp set and some pretty Garden Impressions DSP.  Take a look-see:

Good morning, y’all!  It’s Monday – and I’ve entered The Final Countdown!  Bleh.  Just 4 more days and then…I’m leavin’-on-a-jet-plane! 🙁  Did I already say…bleh??

But – we’ve got a week!  So – let’s start it with a super fun fun-fold, shall we?  If you were able to join me last night on my Facebook Live video to see how I made this – thanks for spending part of your weekend with me!  If not, but you’d like to see the instant-ish replay – here ’tis!

Stampin’ Up! Big Wishes Hand Delivered Video Sneak Peek

Good morning, y’all!  Hope your weekend is going well!  I got my pre-business-trip-haircut yesterday and then swung by Costco on the way home.  Got five giant bags of frozen cauliflower rice.  And a frozen cauliflower-crust pizza.  Which was really yummy – even Wayne said “We can buy more of those”!  High praise, indeed!

Cauliflower – the dieter’s most valuable weapon!

Well.  At least THIS dieter’s!

So – since this is Sunday, I’m sharing a little peek at the card that we’ll be making tonight on my Stamps-N-Lingers Facebook Live video at 8pm Eastern!  It uses a lot of color, and two fun new stamp sets – the Big Wishes and the Hand Delivered stamp set.  Here’s a sneaky peek!

Stampin’ Up! Stitched All Around on Wood

Hey guys!  Happy Saturday!  Hope you’ve got something fun planned!  We watched the Black Panther movie on DVD last night, so we’re all caught up – which means…I’m going to go see the Marvels movie today.  Before it’s totally out of the theaters! 🙂  And I think the Man will go to Doggie Camp for the first time since “the incident”!

So – let’s do this, shall we?  I used the pretty Stitched All Around Bundle (which coordinates with the Stitched Labels Framelits) for my card.  And then I added some Wood Textures and Share What You Love DSPs.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Poem Easel Card for the Stamp Ink Paper #150

Good morning, y’all!  It’s Tuesday so time for another Stamp Ink Paper challenge for you to play along with!  This week it’s all about the fun-fold!

One of my favorite fun-folds is the Easel Card.  I like it cuz it’s so easy to make that it’s sort of ridiculous – but the wow-factor is high!  For this one, I jumped both feet right back into my wheelhouse and went with the Nature’s Poem DSP and the Rooted in Nature bundle, which includes the Nature’s Roots Framelits.  Take a look-see:
