Stampin’ Up! Over The Moon Sneak Peek for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hey y’all – it’s Thursday, so it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!!  Today’s Hop is a color challenge – and it’s a doozy! – so, I’m excited to see what everyone comes up with –  I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop!

Our color sketch is…no colors!  Well, we’re allowed to use a little bit of an accent color.  So…given the basic non-color-colors of the challenge, I decided it was time to ink up the new and uber-adorbs Over The Moon stamp set – which is coming to you on 4 June!  Take a look-see:

Guess what the non-color-colors were?

I added a touch of yellow!

I borrowed a fun layout from the CAS(E) This Sketch challenge this week – it fit right into the play-on-words that I was going for!

I started with a Whisper White panel and used some stickey notes to mask the top portion off.  Then, in Basic Gray, I stamped the Over the Moon moon several times.  Then I used the fine-tip end of my Light Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blend to lightly color the inside edges of the moon.

I made some doodle-dashes across the card panel with my Journaling Pen.  You can also see I added clusters of dots around the moons!

 

Using my Stamparatus, I added the Over the Moon sentiment in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  Above that is the adorable cow – also in Tuxedo Black – “over the moon”.

See what I did there?  The COW is actually OVER the MOON!

I’m quackin’ myself up here!! 😉

I used my Basic Gray and Basic Black Watercolor Pencils to color the cow.  And my Light Daffodil Delight Blend to color the bell.  Then I matted the panel on So Saffron for the card front.

I tied a teesny-weensy little bow from Whisper White Solid Baker’s Twine and added it with a teensy-weensy dab of Liquid Glue.  A Rhinestone Basic Jewel and some more dot-clusters in the corners finished off the card front!

On the inside, I added Basic Gray moons and doodle dot clusters in the corners of a Whisper White panel.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a So Saffron mat and into my Basic Gray card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more moons and doodle-dots on the front…

…and…a little more fun cow-ness on the back!

Et Voila!  I was SO tickled to be able to get this Over The Moon stamp set with my pre-order (one of those little Demonstrator perks!).  I fell in love with the cows and fun sentiments the second I saw it!  And I know you will, too – so just go ahead and add this one to your shopping list!!  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! A Little Lace Sneak Peek

Hey y’all – welcome to another week.  Isn’t there a holiday coming up soon?

I hope?

My card today is very simple – and showcases a sweet little new set from the 2019-2010 Annual Catalog called A Little Lace.  Take a look-see:

I started by stamping the large image from A Little Lace in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a Whisper White panel – using my Stamparatus.  I also added a few additional images around the large one.

With my Light and Dark Petal Pink and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends, I colored some of the flowers.

I added the sentiment from A Little Lace in Pretty Peacock – and then added another little fleur-de-do in the corner.

I added some doodle-dashes around the panel with my Journaling Pen.  The panel is double matted on Basic Black and Petal Pink.

I added a couple three Gold Faceted Gems – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added another floral image from A Little Lace in the four corners of a Whisper White panel, and colored them with the Light and Dark Daffodil Delight Blends.  Then I “connected” them with doodle-dashes.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel on Basic Black and Petal Pink, then into my Pretty Peacock card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more A Little Lace florals and some doodle-dashes on the front…

…and all I did on the envelope flap was…doodle-dashes! 🙂

Et Voila!  A Little Lace is such fun – and it’s even got a die set bundled with it called the Stitched Lace Dies – which I can’t wait to use!  But – it also works really well all by itself, don’t you think?  I hope you like!

P.S.  Wayne and I had a great time at our going-away lunch for Amy on Saturday!  Ate some great food and spent time with friends!  Making new – good! – friends has been one of the biggest bonuses of being part of this wonderful Stampin’ Up! family!

Finn brought me a Mother’s Day gift yesterday.

I THINK he re-gifted… 😉

And…he sort of asked if he could hold on to it while I wasn’t chewing on it.  For safe keeping and stuff – keep that darned cat from getting it.

Definitely a “gift of love”! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Come Sail Away North Sneak Peek For the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hey y’all – it’s Thursday, so it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!!  Today’s Hop is a sketch challenge and I’m excited to see what everyone comes up with –  I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop!

I fell in love with the Come Sail Away Suite of goodies when I made my samples and presentation for OnStage this past April!  And when I saw today’s sketch challenge, my brain saw the lighthouse in the vertical element.  So I pulled the Sailing Home stamp set and bundled Smooth Sailing Dies out and…take a look-see:

And here’s the sketch – which I turned on its side!

I started with some pretty Mossy Meadow striped paper from the Come Sail Away DSP pack and matted it on Soft Suede for the card front.  I also matted a second smaller DSP panel on Soft Suede and added it to the card front with Liquid Glue.  Then, I wrapped a piece of 5/8″ Burlap Ribbon around the panel – securing it in the back with Glue Dots.

I cut two “rope” lengths from Soft Suede – this is a cool die from Smooth Sailing – and adhered them with Liquid Glue.

On a Whisper White panel, I stamped the compass image from Sailing Home multiple times in Soft Suede, cut it with a Stitched Shapes Framelits circle and popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the aforementioned lighthouse in Soft Suede on Whisper White then used a Blender Pen and ink from the lid of my Mossy Meadow ink pad to lightly color it.  I cut it with the matching Smooth Sailing Die and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I stamped the Sailing Home sentiment in Mossy Meadow on a bannerized (with Paper Snips!) strip of Whisper White.  Then I added faux stitches with my Soft Suede Stampin’ Write Marker and used a Dimensional and Liquid Glue to adhere it.

I cut the two compass needle pieces from the Smooth Sailing Dies – the larger in Soft Suede and the finer needle in Mossy Meadow and adhered them to the middle compass rose pointing…North.  I colored a Pearl Basic Jewel with my Bronze Stampin’ Blend and stuck it in the middle of the needle.

To make the “antique bronze” trinkets – from the silver Sail Away Trinkets – I first colored them with my Bronze Stampin’ Blend.  When the ink was dry, I lightly touched here and there with my Light Basic Black Blend.  Worked great!  I used a Glue Dot to adhere the wheel under the sentiment.  Then I added a “lanyard” of Mossy Meadow (from the Magnolia Lane Ribbon Combo Pack coming on 4 June) and Old Olive Linen Threads and adhered the anchor with another Glue Dot – and that was it for the card front!

On the inside, I added the Sailing Home compass image in Soft Suede in the corner of a Whisper White panel.   On the middle compass, I added a die cut “needle” in Soft Suede and Mossy Meadow – adding a Bronzed Pearl Basic Jewel to the middle.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Soft Suede mat and into my 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 Sailing Home compasses in Soft Suede on the front…

…and some more of the shipping chart image from the Come Sail Away DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Boy oh boy – this Come Sail Away Suite is just….amazing!  Don’t you think?!?  I just love it – and think there are so many possible projects to make using the wonderful images and sentiments.  And…the paper.  The PAPER!!  Wow!  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Perennial Floral Essence Sneak Peek for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hey y’all – it’s Thursday, so it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!!  Today’s Hop is a sketch challenge and I’m excited to see what everyone comes up with –  I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop!

For mine today, I pulled out some of the prettiest DSP that you’re ever going to see – the Perennial Essence DSP in the new 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.  It’s going to be available on 4 Jun – along with the rest of the Perennial Essence Suite.  Take a look-see:

Yep – that’s the paper doing all the work, folks!

Here’s the sketch we were all working with.

I started with some of that pretty paper and matted it on Crushed Curry for the card front.

Then, using two different designs from the paper pack, I cut two banner strips.  I bannerized the ends by sticking the strip in the back of the Tailored Tag Punch (yes, I left my Banner Triple Punch at home.  Do not ask me why!).

I adhered both banners to the card front with Liquid Glue.

For the flowers, I stamped the image from the Floral Essence stamp set 4 times in Crushed Curry on some…So Saffron Vellum Card Stock!!  Whoo-hooo!!  COLORED Vellum.  You can get it and Old Olive and Petal Pink all in a 12″ x 12″ combo pack when the new catalog comes out in June!

Once the flowers were good and dry, I punched them all out with the Perennial Flower Punch (bundled with the Floral Essence stamp set in the new catalog) and created flowers by stacking two together with a Stampin’ Dimensional.

I added a fuzzy Perennial Essence Flower Center to each flower and set them aside for a minute.

On a piece of Petal Pink paper from the Perennial Essence DSP, I stamped the Floral Essence sentiment in Blackberry Bliss ink using my Stamparatus.  Over the sentiment, I added the Floral Essence flower image in Petal Pink.  Then I cut it all out with a Stitched Shapes Framelits circle die.  I adhered the circle to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stuck a Perennial Essence Flower Center onto the sentiment circle, popped the two Vellum flowers on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped the Floral Essence flower a few times in Petal Pink in the corner of more of the Perennial Essence DSP.  I gave each flower a center with the little image from Floral Essence in stamped-off-twice Crushed Curry.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Crushed Curry mat and into my Blackberry Bliss card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Floral Essence flowers and centers (in full strength Crushed Curry) on the front…

…and I used a little more of the Perennial Essence DSP on the envelope flap!

Et Voila!  Oh my goodness, you guys!!  THIS.  PAPER.  IS.  SPECTACULAR!  Each piece brings more stunning gorgeousness – like Monet painting after Monet painting!  Wow!  It works so perfectly with the coordinating Floral Essence stamp set and bundled Perennial Flower Punch, too.  You’re truly going to love this one!  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Magnolia Lane No-Ink Memories & More Sneak Peek

Happy Tuesday, y’all!  Hope the week is going well for you!  We’ve finally got warm weather up here, so it’s nice to be able to NOT have to wear all our heavy insulated winter gear! 🙂

My card today is another no-ink card.  And it uses another new (available 4 June) set of Memories & More Cards – this is the Magnolia Lane set.  Once I opened it up last Saturday to share with you, my brain had been making this card!  Of course, I also used the new (coming on 4 June in the new catalog) Magnolia Lane Large Specialty Cards & Envelopes, too.  And – that was about all I needed!  Take a look-see:

The layout for this card comes from the sketch portion of this week’s FUSION Challenge.

Here’s a reminder of all the wonderful goody-goodness in the new Magnolia Lane Suite! 🙂

And here’s the Magnolia Memories & More Card Pack and Large Specialty Cards & Envelopes!

I started with one of those cards and one small sentiment panel from the Card Pack.  I matted the panel on a piece of Basic Black cardstock and popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut a strip from another panel of the Card Pack and matted it on Basic Black, too.  Then I adhered three of the fun Magnolia Lane Cork Embellishments and added the whole thing to the card front with more Liquid Glue.

I tied a Linen Thread Double-Loop bow and stuck it on with a Glue Dot.  Over top is a simple bow tied from some new Mossy Meadow Linen Thread.  This new Linen Thread is part of the Magnolia Lane Ribbon Combo Pack – and you’ll be able to get IT on 4 June, too!

And – y’all?  That was all the front of this card needed!

For the inside, I used a large panel from the card pack and added a single magnolia sticker – which is just one of the cool embellishments included in the Magnolia Lane Memories & More Card Pack.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Basic Black mat and into my Large Specialty Card – and that was it!

My envelope – also part of the Magnolia Lane Large Specialty Cards & Envelopes – got another couple of stickers on the front…

…and I simply adhered one of the INCLUDED envelope liners inside to finish it off!  How beautiful is that liner?!? 🙂

Et Voila!  This entire Magnolia Lane Suite is going to be my favorite, I’m pretty sure!  I love the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set and matching Magnolia Memory Dies – even though I didn’t need them for this card!  And I’ve become a total fan of Memories & More Card Packs in general – and this one in particular!  It is simply a most spectacular suite of goodies – I hope you like and have added it to your GOTTA HAVE IT lists! 🙂

No new pictures of the Man until I can get home to take them! 🙁

My Mom sent me this little cartoon – and it seemed pretty perfect for this part of my post – one that centers on my sweet Finn – who loves me no matter how fat or skinny I am, no matter if I’ve washed (or even finger-combed!) my hair or put make-up on.  All of you who are loved by a dog understand this picture.

Stampin’ UP! Life is Grand, Lovely and Floral!

Well.  Here we are.  Monday.  Again.  Bleh.

That said – before our NEXT Monday together, I’ll be at OnStage.  And ON our next Monday together….I’ll be sharing all the sneak peeks from the new 2019-2020 Annual Catalog!  Speaking of – if you’re a current customer of mine, you’ll be on my list for mailing you a new catalog.  I can order them on 2 May and as soon as I get them in hand I’ll send them out to you!  If you aren’t a customer of mine – but would like to be – and aren’t already working with a Demonstrator! – place an order with me of $50 or more between now and 2 May to get on my mailing list! 🙂

My card for today is a super simple one – with a nice clean design!  It uses the big and bold Life is Grand stamp set, plus some goodies here and there from the All My Love Suite!  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Amazing Butterfly Life

‘Sup, y’all!?  Week going well?  We’ve finally got a little teensy warmer weather up here in the Baltimore area – thank the Good Lord!  Boy, when the wind blows here it is Some.  Kind.  Of.  Cold!  Brrrr!

I have a Spring-y card for you today – to counter the cold, maybe? It uses one of my favorite Sale-A-Bration goodies (and you’ve only got 6 more days to get plenty of it for your stash!) – the Botanical Butterfly DSP.  Atop that pretty paper, I just added a big bold sentiment from the Amazing Life bundle.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Part of My Painted Season Story

Happy Tuesday, guys!  Hope your week is progressing nicely!  We’re having a day or two of really gorgeous weather – the rain is done for a minute and we’re hitting the 60’s.  The weather is cray cray this year!

For today, I made a cheerful little card with a couple of old faves and a few new winners!  Painted Seasons – the stamp set AND the designer paper – plays a strong supporting role to the Part of My Story sentiment.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Country Flowing Fountain

Happy Saturday, y’all!

Well – last night, at the end of a long and turbulent week, Wayne and I went to dinner with our friends in what has become a routine for us.  Not all routines are something to be eagerly anticipated – but this one…definitely is.  It’s a nice thing to look forward to each weekend!

Also – did you know that yesterday was – apparently – National Margarita Day?  I didn’t until my friend told me – which helped make the dinner decision easier.  Mexican it was.

But – they weren’t doing ANYthing special for National Margarita Day.

Mexican.  Food.  Restaurant.  National Margarita Day.  Hola?!?

Pero….Nada.

Huh.

Not saying this kept me from having the drink-of-the-day.  Cuz I totally did!

Now – my ramblings about my dinner aside, we’ve also got a card – which is, in fact, why you’re here, right? 😉

It’s a clean-and-simple little number, that I made with a sentiment from the Flowing Fountain stamp set with an assist from the new Country Floral Dynamic TIEF and some beautiful Painted Seasons DSP.  Take a look-see:
