Stampin’ Up! Rustic Harvest Two Pumpkins Masculine Hello Card

Good morning, y’all!  Happy Monday from the Happiest Place on Earth!!  When you read this I’ll be…on the treadmill or at the breakfast buffet!!  As I type this on Sunday evening, I confess I can’t tell you which one is on my list for the morning.  That question has to be answered by Morning Mary.  NIGHT Mary says…neither – stay asleep, goofus! 🤷‍♀️

The card I made for you today features a Fall fave – the Hello Harvest stamp set with its pretty and bundled Rustic Pumpkins Dies, with a little Rustic Harvest DSP to set the color stage!  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Cloudy But Sunkissed Birthday Card with Video Tutorial

Hello hello!  Happy Sunday!  We had a great time yesterday – ate some cake, chatted with friends, cheered over the game!  Had to leave a little before the game ended to come home to feed ponies.  And Finn!

The card I made yesterday is a clean-and-simple little number – it’s a silhouette card using the Sunkissed stamp set – I was feeling in a tropical mood, I guess!  And I created a cool cloudy-sky effect using the Basic Borders Die set.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Celebrate with Tags & Soft Seedlings Birthday with Video Tutorial

Good morning – it’s T-7 days!  To what??  Well – this time next week I’ll be on the way to FLORIDA!  First to Jacksonville to meet up with a bunch of team mates for the 2022 OnStage Local and THEN – on down to Dinney!!  Hard to say which is more exciting – I’m glad I get to do BOTH and don’t have to pick!

Betwixt now and then, I’ve got some card making and sharing to do with y’all – and today is no exception!  Today’s card was inspired by my friend Darla Shelton who sent me a gorgeous card using my fave set – the Soft Seedlings stamp set!  I used that set – plus the Celebrate with Tags bundle – to make my own version – suitable-for-a-guy!  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Rugged Charming Sentiments Masculine Thank You Card

Happy Tuesday!  Did you all have a good three-day weekend?  Ours was a bit of a wash-out – it rained much of each day!  Which meant – a lot of inside time for us!  Not altogether a bad thing, really!

My card today is a special request – needed a masculine thank you for handyman work done well.  Not hunting or fishing.  Maybe some woods….hmmmm.

So – I put on my crafty thinking cap and…pulled out the Rugged Icons die set – with its power drill die.  And then some Neutrals DSP – a couple of sentiments from Charming Sentiments.  And then I let myself use some woodsy elements from the Grassy Grove set on the inside – I mean..the work was done at a Rocky Mountain house so….it seemed right!  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Brightest Beauty Leaf Fall in Neutrals

Good Monday morning, y’all!  It’s Monday again and I’m at T-2 days until Amy arrives!  Whoo-hoo!  And T-3 before we head to the land of beignets!  And coffee made with nuts.  Hmmm.  One is a donut – good.  The other is coffee.  From nuts.  Chicory, to be more specific.  I am trying to withhold judgment.  But….coffee.  From…nuts.  🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️  I hope that in a few days I’ll be shaking my head in amusement at myself and buying bags to bring home in the People Mover.  One of the many advantages of driving vs flying!

I’ve got a quick and easy – and suitable for ANYONE! – card for you today.  It uses one of my fave bundles from the Jul – Dec 2022 Mini – the Brightest Beauty set with the bundled Golden Beauty Dies.  And…the amazingly wunnermus Leaf Fall 3D Embossing Folder.  All in earthy neutrals.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Charming Sentiments, Rugged Icons & Campology with…Candy Canes?…and a Video Tutorial!

Good morning and Happy Sunday from soggy Georgia!  We’re for sure in the Monsoon season here in the south.  Like…torrential rains – and then SAUNA! Yikes!  We took all the paper shares to the post office this morning in a total downpour – but…they’re in the mail!  And – WE were wet but THEY were NOT!  Whoo-hoo!!

Speaking of – if you’re experiencing regret or FOMO that you didn’t buy a share – let me know!  I cut a few extra Single Shares while I was at it if you’d like one.  Drop me a line at stamps-n-lingers@comcast.net!

Now, my card today doesn’t use any DSP from the Jul – Dec 2022 Mini.  Instead – it gets all its fun from…the Candy Canes dies from the mini and the totally-a-flyover stand-alone die set called Rugged Icons from the Annual Catalog!  The wonderful workhorse Charming Sentiments bundle provides the sentiment and – on the inside – go camping in the woods with the Campology set.  Take a look-see:

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.

Good morning.  Believe it or don’t – it’s Friday.  Again!  Time is doing that thing that it does…FLY!  It’ll be time to boil the taters and brine the turkey before you know it!
