Stampin’ Up! Whale Done Color Blocking with a Video Tutorial!

Happy Friday, y’all!  Been a busy week here, don’t know how it’s been for you.  Our garden picked this week to decide to BURST at the seams!  I had tomatoes and green beans and chile peppers and tomatillos EVERYWHERE.  On every counter surface and in every rinse/drain container I own.  So, yesterday I decided I’d better get them “processed”.   Let me just say – I can wait a long time to peel and roast another tomatillo, y’all!

Except…I won’t be able to wait – cuz those boogers are just tomatillo-ing their little hearts out! I’ll be peeling/roasting/blending again before I know it!

If you were able to join me yesterday for my YouTube live, I appreciate you spending some time with me – if not, but you’d like to see the replay, here ’tis! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Poppy Moments to Last a Lifetime 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 a sketch challenge – and I’m excited to see what everyone brings to the table!  I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop today!

I made a card for you today that would be perfect for a wedding – using the Last a Lifetime stamp set and some wonderful Poppy Moments flowers.  Plus – a little Breathtaking Bouquet (which is on the Retiring List!).  Take a look-see:

And – here’s our sketch!

And I was inspired by the gorgeous bouquet, white accents and romantic feel in The Card Concept photo inspiration. I’d say my card is somewhere between Clean and Layered and Shabby Chic and Vintage!

I started by using my Stamparatus to stamp the big, beautiful floral image from the Breathtaking Bouquet background set in Pool Party on a piece of Whisper White.  Then I matted it on a piece of Pool Party with Liquid Glue for the card front.

Next, I used a die in the new Ornate Layers Die set to cut a Pool Party frame, embossed it in the Scripty 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I stamped the Last a Lifetime sentiment in Pool Party on a piece of Whisper White and cut it out with the long die in the Ornate Layers set.

I adhered the sentiment to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I pulled out my Poppy Moments die set and used the leaves dies to cut two leaves in Vellum and two in Pool Party.  I also cut a couple of Whisper White berries with my go-to berries die in the Frosted Bouquet set.  Y’all – this die set is SO cool – and it’s GOING AWAY!!  GET IT NOW!! 🙁

I cut two solid flowers in Whisper White, two detailed flowers and several Pool Party centers. Using the splotch image in Painted Poppies, I stamped the flowers in Pool Party, then adhered the detailed flowers to the solid flowers using Liquid Glue (just in the middle).   I added the Pool Party centers with more Liquid Glue.

The final piece to prepare was a large-ish bow tied from Whisper White 1/4″ Crinkled Seam Binding.

I dry fit everything and took my pictures…

…then got busy adhering everything with Liquid Glue.  Finally, I popped the flowers back in place with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I finished off the card front with a few Pool Party gems from the Holiday Rhinestone pack – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a second Last a Lifetime sentiment in Pool Party to a Whisper White panel.  Around the top and bottom edges, I added the floral image from Last a Lifetime, also in Pool Party.  A single Holiday Rhinestone finished it off.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Pool Party mat and into my Whisper White card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more of the Last a Lifetime floral image in Pool Party on the front…

…and I added some script-covered Pool Party Subtles 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Poppies in white and blue!  Love them – and was SO glad to see that the Poppy Moments dies will be carrying over!  And – so is the Last a Lifetime set!  Whoo-hoo!!

I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Forever Blossoms with Video Tutorial for the Paper Players

Hey y’all – it’s Sunday, which means I’ve got another fun challenge for you from the Paper Players – it’s a Color Challenge from the talented JayDee this week and it’ll for sure jump-start your creative mojo!  I hope you’ll come and play along.  🙂

If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video, I appreciate you spending some of your weekend with me!  If not, but you’d like to see the replay on YouTube…here ’tis!

The color palette for our challenge didn’t really “scream” one thing or another when I saw it – which meant it was wide open for me!  I finally decided to play with a sponging and silhouette technique – using the pretty floral from the Forever Blossoms stamp set.  Take a look-see:

And here’s this week’s Paper Players Theme challenge!  Hope you’ll join the fun and show us your projects!  I can’t wait to see what you create!  🙂

The layout is from the Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

This is really easy so – I hope you’ll try it!

I started with a Whisper White panel for the card front.   From a second, identically sized, piece of card stock, I cut a Stitched Nested Label – this one is 4 1/4″ from tip-to-tip.

Using repositionable adhesive (like this one), I tacked the die cut panel to the Whisper White panel.

With sponge wedges, I sponged the middle of the opening with So Saffron.  I used Seaside Spray on the top and bottom.  Go easy – start lightly and off the edge with your sponge.  🙂

When I had the color to the depth that I wanted it, I picked up my mask and used a rubber eraser to remove the little adhesive dots.

I placed the panel in my Stamparatus and used it to stamp the big floral image from Forever Blossoms in Granite Gray.  I stamped it a couple of times to get the image as dark as I wanted.

I stamped the Forever Blossoms sentiment in Gray Granite and then added some faux stitches around the shape with my Gray Granite Stampin’ Write Marker.

I matted the panel on So Saffron for the card front.  With my Dark So Saffron Stampin’ Blend, I colored three Pearl Basic Jewels and adhered them here and there.  And that was it for the card front!

On the inside, I stamped a second sentiment from Forever Blossoms in Gray Granite on Whisper White.  I added part of the large floral image in Gray Granite – and lightly colored just the middles of the flowers with the Dark So Saffron Blend.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a So Saffron mat and into my Seaside Spray card base, popped the card front on with Stampin Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got the Forever Blossoms image again in Gray Granite and So Saffron on the front…

…and some Seaside Spray 2019-2021 In Color 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Mark the day – no layering, no bows, minimal bling! – is this REALLY a Mary card?!?  Yes – ’tis!  I love how this Forever Blossoms stamp set worked for the silhouetted image – perfect without die cutting or adding any “extras” to it.  It’s just that gorgeous of an image!  I hope you like!

If you want to recreate this card – all the Stampin’ Up! products you need are listed down below along with the card cuts!

Stampin’ Up! Heartfelt Tri-Panel Fun Fold for The Paper Players

I’ve got another fun challenge for you today from the Paper Players – I hope that you’ll come on over and play!  We’re playing with a color challenge, and I didn’t get even a little jiggy with it! 😉

If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video, I appreciate you spending some of your weekend with me!  If not, but you’d like to see the replay on YouTube…here ’tis!

I decided to make one last Valentine’s Day card for this challenge – giving me a great chance to use several pretty designs in the From My Heart Specialty DSP.  And, with that, I also pulled out the Heartfelt stamp set and the wonderful bundled Heart Punch Pack.  All on a fun-fold card.  Take a look-see:

And here’s this week’s colorful Paper Players challenge!  Join the fun and show us your projects! 🙂

This is called a Tri-Panel Fun Fold and I got the inspiration for it from my friend and teammate Karen Ksenzakovic who got it from our other teammate Barbara Ross, who saw a video on it from Tina Rappe!  Whew!  That’s a lot of talent right there.  Hope I did this justice – cuz it’s totally cool!

Also?  It’s totally easy, so…winner winner!

Being that it’s February and stuff, I figured a Valentine’s Day card would fit perfectly with this FUSION challenge.

I started with a “card base” of Basic Black and added a Real Red-matted piece of the From My Heart Specialty DSP.  The card base is flat – but is 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ (which means this one fits right in a regular A2 envelope!).

I cut the tri-panel part of the card from Flirty Flamingo and scored it at 1 1/2″, 3″, 5 1/2″ and 8″.  Then I folded each score line in opposite directions – starting with a “mountain” at the 1 1/2″ fold.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the last panel to a Basic Black mat and then to the card base.

All but one panel has a Basic Black-matted decoration – either a piece of the From The Heart Specialty DSP or a Whisper White sentiment panel.

On the Whisper White panel, I stamped a sentiment from the Heartfelt set in Real Red.  Over that, I added the small lace-y heart in stamped-off-once Flirty Flamingo.

On a piece of Whisper White, I stamped the solid Happy Valentine’s Day heart in Real Red and cut it with the heart punch in the Heart Punch Pack.  I adhered it at a jaunty angle to the back panel.

For the front of the card, I made a stacked heart sentiment.  First, I stamped the dotted heart image from Heartfelt on a piece of Whisper White.  Inside that, in Real Red, is a sentiment from the set.  I also stamped the larger lace-y heart in Real Red and punched it out with the scalloped heart in the punch pack.

To make the stack, I started with a Flirty Flamingo Heart Doily, to which I adhered a loop of Real Red 3/8″ Double-Stitched Satin Ribbon with Glue Dots.  I popped the scalloped heart over that with Stampin’ Dimensionals – then added the sentiment with Liquid Glue.

I adhered the whole thing to the front-most panel of the tri-panel fold with Liquid Glue and that was it for the card.  When you make one of these – be sure that you only use the adhesive on HALF of your decoration!  Otherwise…fun-fold be like…glued shut! 😉

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got the large Heartfelt heart in Real Red on the front…

…and one of the From My Heart papers on the envelope flap.

Et voila! Easy Peasy, huh?  I am loving this Tri-Panel Fun Fold and it is so Valentine-perfect with the Heartfelt stamp set and bundled Heart Punch Pack, don’t you think?  I hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix


On chilly mornings, I sometimes will go sit in the tack room after I put the girls out and before cleaning the stalls.  There’s a comfy recliner in the apartment and it’s warm.

So – I sit there all bundled up and read a book for a bit until I can gird my loins and go back into the cold to finish the chores.

Okay – yes.  Sometimes I might accidentally take a little nap. 😉

Finn comes in with me.  Not cuz he’s cold (he LOVES winter!!) – but because he’s velcro!

But – there’s only so much laying-around-while-mom-reads/naps that a guy can take.

So…he sits up and scratches to see if I’ll get the hint.

Is she watching?

Is she even AWAKE??

Mom?  For crying out loud, Mom – let’s GO!!!

He’s nothing if not persistent! 😉

Stampin’ Up! Heartfelt Detailed Hearts for The Paper Players

I’ve got another fun challenge for you today from the Paper Players – I hope that you’ll come on over and play!  It’s a very month-appropriate theme challenge, as you’ll see in a second.

If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video, I appreciate you spending some of your weekend with me!  If not, but you’d like to see the replay on YouTube…here ’tis!

I decided to go all-out Valentine’s Day for our challenge – with the Heartfelt stamp set and bundled Heart Punch Pack with a little extra help from the Detailed Hearts Die set.  Take a look-see:

 

And here’s this week’s Paper Players challenge!  Join the fun and show us your projects! 🙂

The layout for this one is from this week’s CAS(E) This Sketch challenge.

And it’s for certain-sure a Valentine’s Day card so…the TGIF Challenge was perfect!

Finally, the Just Us Girls Word Week Challenge helped me add the final element!

I started with a piece of Whisper White card stock that I embossed in the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder and matted on Basic Black for the card front.

To create the ombre Detailed Hearts Die cut – I took a piece of Whisper White card stock and adhered 1 1/8″ wide strips of Lovely Lipstick, Melon Mambo, Flirty Flamingo, Blushing Bride and Petal Pink cardstock to it with Liquid Glue.  Be sure to get adhesive right up to the edges of the strips!

I laid the Detailed Hearts Die over the panel and ran it thru my die cutting machine.  It takes a few passes – it’s thick!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the die cut to the card front.

Then I used some Liquid Glue to adhere a length of Black 1/2″ Satin Ribbon on a diagonal.

For the sentiment, I used my Stamparatus to stamp the sentiment from the Heartfelt stamp set in Flirty Flamingo on Whisper White.  Using the Heart Punch Pack, I cut the sentiment with the straight-edge heart and used the scalloped-edge heart to cut one from Silver Glimmer Paper.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the sentiment heart to its Silver Glimmer heart mat and then to the card front.

I tied a small bow from the Black 1/2″ Satin Ribbon and adhered it with a Glue Dot to finish off the card front.

On the inside, I stamped a second Heartfelt sentiment in Flirty Flamingo on a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the dotted-heart image in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  Then I made a mask from a sticky note by punching the straight-edged Heart Punch.  I set the mask over the heart and sentiment and stamped the arrow in Melon Mambo.  Then I “fixed” the little gap with my Melon Mambo Stampin’ Write Marker.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Basic Black mat and then into my Flirty Flamingo card base, popped the card front on with Black Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got a Tuxedo Black Memento ink dotted heart and Melon Mambo arrow on the front…

…and a Melon Mambo heart stamp from the Heartfelt set on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Valentine’s Day – straight up!  I love the way the Heartfelt Bundle with the cool dual-punch Heart Punch Pack works with the Detailed Hearts Die, don’t you?

That single die gives so much interest to a card – whether you do it in tone-on-tone (like I did on this card here) or with a rainbow of colors like I did today!  I hope you like!

If you want to recreate this card – all the Stampin’ Up! products you need are listed down below along with the card cuts!

Finn Fan Fix


So – Finn gave up his “spot” today for a different kind of post.

On Friday evening, my brother lost his sweet kitty, Bijou.  She was rescued from New Orleans after Katrina as a youngster and he adopted her.

Bijou – “a small dainty usually ornamental piece of delicate workmanship; something delicate, elegant, or highly prized”

No photo description available.

As all our fur-children do, she quickly became a fixture in his heart.

Image may contain: cat and indoor

Considering he had her for most of her life he is pretty devastated at her loss.  And I know his apartment is feeling very empty today.

Image may contain: cat, table and indoor

So – please send good thoughts and prayers his way for peace today and comfort knowing that she’s at the Bridge, playing will all the good kitties who have gone ahead.

Image may contain: possible text that says 'A piece of my heart is at rainbow bridge'

Bijou was about the same age as Katy.

Which means that our time with her is probably drawing to a close.

So I’ll try to remember that at 3:30 in the morning when she wakes me up to eat – even though she’s got food bowls set out.  It’s apparently not the “right” food.  In some cases it’s the SAME food that she WILL eat if I get up and give it to her at 3:30 in the morning.

My little fur-tyrant.

Of course, like all fur-children, just about the time I “can’t take another second” – she…

and….

So.

Now both Bijou and Katy are immortalized on the internet forever!

Thanks for reading my not-Finn-Fan Fix!

Stampin’ Up! It Starts With Art 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 – 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!

When I saw the color challenge, my brain gravitated to the Follow Your Art suite.  So out came the It Starts With Art stamp set, a little Follow Your Art DSP and the fun Button Button Embossing Folder (all of which will be available to you in JUST FIVE DAYS!!).  Take a look-see:

Here’s the color scheme!

And – I pulled from this week’s Tuesday Morning Sketches challenge for the layout.

I started with some Coastal Cabana paper from the Follow Your Art DSP and embossed it in the Button Button folder, then matted it on Daffodil Delight for the card front!

Next up is a small panel of Whisper White – also embossed in the Button Button folder and matted on Daffodil Delight.

I created the diagonal element of the sketch with some carrying-over Granny Apple Green 1/2″ Textured Weave Ribbon – I cut four short lengths and adhere them directly to the card front with Liquid Glue.

For the It Starts With Art sentiment, I stamped it in Granny Apple Green on Whisper White.  Smack over the sentiment, in stamped-off-once Daffodil Delight, I added two little re-inkers!

I cut the sentiment with a Stitched Nested Label and cut a larger Daffodil Delight label for the mat.  I adhered them together with Liquid Glue and popped it over the ribbons with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I pulled out my Follow Your Art Embellishment Kit and strung a little silver heart locket onto a Coastal Cabana paper clip and then hooked that to a Coastal Cabana felt heart.  I adhered the whole thing to the sentiment with a couple of Glue Dots, then added a tiny Whisper White Solid Baker’s Twine bow with one more Glue Dot.  And that was it for the card front!

On the inside, I stamped two more re-inkers from It Starts With Art in stamped off TWICE Daffodil Delight on a Whisper White panel.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Daffodil Delight mat and into my Granny Apple Green card base, popped the card base on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got two stamped-off-once Daffodil Delight re-inkers on the front…

…and then I added a little more Follow Your Art DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  The Follow Your Art set is just so perfect for all us crafty folk, don’t you think?  The It Starts With Art set – and it’s bundled Arts & Crafts Dies – will let you express your creativity all day long – and no fussy cutting those ribbons and inkers and pens!  I hope you like – and are counting the days with me!

Now that you’ve seen my card, take a minute to hop thru all our projects today  If you click on the Next Blog button, you’ll go right to Kristi’s page. And you can just click on the names below to go direct to all the blogs!
