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:
Well – good morning, y’all! Did you have a good weekend? Mine was busy – and fun! After Backstage on Friday and Saturday, we had our great Check Out The Krew FB event and it was great! If you were able to join us – I hope you enjoyed it as much as we did! If you couldn’t watch – there’s a lot of good info still on the page – and…maybe even some prize patrols still open! 😉 And – I hope you are – or will be! – thinking about taking advantage of the great opportunity to join Stampin’ Up! with our team! We’d love to have you in our Stampin’ Up! family!
The card I made for you today is probably going to make you say….Mary, is that YOUR card?! 😳 It even surprised me! I used the pretty Blackberry Beauty Specialty DSP to make a….clean-and-simple, masculine!…card! Gorgeous Leaves and its bundled Intricate Leaves die set paired with a simple sentiment from the Reflected in Nature stamp set. Take a look-see:

Good morning, y’all! Happy Friday! Again. Seriously – are you guys paying attention?? If not, you’re going to be shocked and dismayed when you wake up and I’ve started posting my countdown to Christmas graphics! 😳😳😳 Yes – time is literally flying by!
But – the loomingness of Christmas is part of why I have today’s card for you! If you were able to join me yesterday for my YouTube video, then I thank you very much for spending a little time with me. If not – but you’d like to see how to make this card (and…learn a couple of new – and AWESOME! – names for plaid-that-looks-like-flannel!), here’s the link to the video on YouTube!

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! 🙂

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’!

Good morning, y’all! It’s Thursday – which means it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!! We’ve got a color challenge to work with today 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 sw our colors, I was a little stymied for a minute. Mojo-fail? Jet Lag? No telling! But – my brain finally kicked in and I decided to give the new Hats Off Bundle a go! And I paired it with some cool and masculine In Good Taste DSP. Take a look-see:

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!
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!
All of which MIGHT lead you to believe that I have an Easter card to share with you today.
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!

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:
