Stampin’ Up! Your Biggest Fan Slimline Congrats Card with Video Tutorial

Good morning and Happy Easter to you all! We’re headed to our friends’ this afternoon – so I’ll be in the kitchen this morning.  The Prime Rib is out and coming to room temp in preparation for it’s sojourn in my hot oven.  The eggs are deviled, the potatoes ready to hit the pressure cooker.  And the lemon sheet cake is…in work!  Yum!

As I started my video last night, it occured to me that I should have made an Easter card for you today.  But… I totally didn’t! 🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️

Instead, I made a Congratulations card (very suitable for the men in your life – but certainly not LIMITED to them!) using the fun Your Biggest Fan bundle and coordinating Hey Sports Fan DSP.  And – it’s a slimline card, too, which means that I used the cool Slimline Envelopes (which ARE going to be in the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog – whoo-hoo!).  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Grassy Grove 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!

I flipped our sketch because I really had a hankering to use the Grassy Grove Bundle – that big frame die has been calling my name (and I “saw” it as the front of the card as soon as I saw our sketch!).  I put it atop some wintry New Horizons 6″ x 6″ DSP and added a Special Moments sentiment to make a pretty (or handsome – it would work equally well for a guy!) birthday card!  Take a look-see:

And here’s our sketch.

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’!
