Stampin’ Up! Knit Sweater Together Time of Giving for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good morning, y’all!  It’s Thursday – which means it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!!  We’ve got a sketch challenge to work with 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!

When I saw our sketch, I saw “background stamp”.  And the one I decided to pull out for you was the Knit Together stamp set – with the bundled Knit Sweater dies.  And – for the sentiment – and a few other elements (like LEAVES!) – out came the Time of Giving stamp set and bundled Giving Gifts Dies.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Time of Giving for the Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop!

Good morning, y’all – welcome to another edition of the Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team blog hop!  Each month we make projects centered around a theme – and this month our theme is Fall Frenzy!  We can interpret that any way we want – so…be sure to check and see everyone’s projects – we’ve got a bunch of talented ladies hopping with us this month!

I decided that falling leaves was going to be my homage to Fall – so I pulled out the new Time of Giving stamp set and bundled Giving Gifts dies, then decided on my favorite Harvest Meadow DSP pattern to bring it all home.  And I pulled it all together on a Fun Fold card!  Take a look-see! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Smooth Sailing Home with Video Tutorial

Hey, y’all – how’s the weekend going?  We had rain yesterday – which we rather desperately needed.  And it cooled it down for a bit – sort of like a swamp cooler does – cooler AND more humid! 🙂  But the plants and veggies were all mostly glad for a drink – and I was glad they got one that I didn’t have to give them!

So – if you were able to join me yesterday for my Facebook Live, I sure appreciate you spending part of your weekend with me!  If not, but you’d like to watch the replay to see how to make this card, here ’tis! Oh – and I DID also share some sneak peeks of the goodies from the Jul – Dec 2021 Mini Catalog that I got while we were in Maui.  Just sayin’!

Stampin’ Up! May’s Batter Up Paper Pumpkin and a Peek at June’s Kit

Good morning, y’all!  While you’re reading this, I’ll be winging my way across the country.  Or…flying from New Jersey to Atlanta.  I’m not really sure.  I DO know that I won’t be home quite yet!

I’m pretty sure I’ll find my May Paper Pumpkin Kit from Stampin’ Up! waiting for me – but by the time I figure out what time zone and state I’m in….😳…there’s no telling when I’ll get to it.  So – I wanted to let you get a peek at it and to ALSO give you a sneak peek at the June 2021 Paper Pumpkin Kit called Expressions in Color!

The May Paper Pumpkin Kit was called Batter Up and it made 9 fun baseball themed cards and coordinating envelopes!

Stampin’ Up! Rooted in Nature Peaceful Moment Sympathy Card

Good morning and HAPPY FRIDAY!!  Do you have something fun planned?  I think our plans revolve around the garden  – I know…shocker! – time to get it all in the ground!  And..I’m HOPING the plan includes putting up my picket fence around the garden!  Send fence-putting-up thoughts to Wayne, will you?!? 😉

So – the card I made today is one that I very carefully made for our friend whose wife died on Sunday – that was the funeral we went to yesterday.  So it’s a masculine one – and one that I really like.  Of course, in our mad rush to get out of the house – we don’t do that very well in the mornings – I left the card sitting smack in the middle of the kitchen table. 🙁  We’ll have to get it to him a different way, I guess.

I used a couple of favorite goodies that are, sadly, retiring soon!  The beautiful Rooted in Nature stamp set and coordinating Nature’s Roots die set.  Then I threw in a couple of sentiments from Peaceful Moments.  I added some In Good Taste DSP  (NOT retiring – phew!!).  Take a look-see:

Good morning on Palm Sunday.  Just a week until Easter and all that day symbolizes!  And – the day that so many hens work so hard for all year round!

Or – so I’ve heard.

Regardless of how you celebrate Easter – hope you’re getting ready for it cuz it’s coming either way!

But…I don’t! 🤷‍♀️

Now – if you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video – I appreciate you spending part of your weekend with me.  If not – and you’d like to see how to make this fun fold, here’s the replay on YouTube!

Stampin’ Up! Enjoy the Moment in Good Taste Birthday Card

Good morning and….might I be the first to wish you a most Happy Happy HAWWWWMP DAY!!! 🙂  Start the slide into the weekend, y’all!

Yesterday, my friend Jan came over to make a sympathy card for a friend – and, I liked the design we ended up with so much that I used it to make my card for you today.  I used the Enjoy the Moment stamp set – and, unlike Jan’s card, that was all I needed for images AND sentiments.  Like hers, though, I also used In Good Taste DSP.  Take a look-see:
