Stampin’ Up! Santa’s Express Delivery with Memories & More Christmas Card

Good morning and – might I add! – happy happy HAWWWMP DAY!!  Whoo-hoo!!

Do y’all like Memories & More Card Packs?  For making cards?  It took me a little while to realize the treasure trove that the card packs really are – and how great they are for making cards in addition to their “intended” use of scrapbooking and memory keeping!  If you haven’t grabbed a pack – I’d urge you to take a look.  And – the one I’ve used for today’s Christmas card – the Santa Express Memories & More Card Pack – is a great place to start!  I added some elements from the Santa’s Delivery bundle and Santa Express DSP.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Blessings of Heart & Home Memories & More Thank You Card

Good morning, my peeps!  How goes your week?

So…did anyone catch the little clue that I hid in yesterday’s blog post?  No!?  Hmm.  Guess I should have “bolded” it!  The hint was…the Last-Chance Products Sale!   That’s right – it’s almost time for you to pick up your favorite 2021-2022 Annual Catalog goodies (can you even BELIEVE it’s that time already!??) for the last time (some of them!).  I’d already told you that it might be a good idea to start gathering up the 2020-2022 In Colors – and you’ve been doing that, for sure – keep it up!  The Last Chance Products Sale starts tomorrow at 1pm Mountain – so…start making your lists! 🙂

My card today is…NOT from the Annual Catalog.  Nope – it’s from the Jan – Jun 2022 Mini and it’s a simple stamping card.  Yes – you know me – I’m all about the minimal layers – not a lot of embellishments! 😉  But – there was a challenge on the street to do “simple stamping” and I decided to give it a go!  And I used the Blessings of Home set, Heart & Home DSP and the coordinating Heart & Home Memories & More Cards and Envelopes to get it done.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Icing on My Frosted Gingerbread & Peppermints

Hey guys – happy Sunday!  Normally we’d have gotten together last night on a FB video – but…BACKSTAGE happened (and was awesome!).  I learned a lot – if you get a chance, search for Dana Wylde (Train Your Brain) and Carey Lohrenz (Span of Control).  Amazing women!

Want to remind you that we’re doing a cool Check Out The Krew event this afternoon/evening!  It’s going to be fun – with lots of info about joining Stampin’ Up!, Prize patrols, and even a ZOOM-based “meet & greet”!  Scroll down for the links and get approved into the Facebook group right away so you don’t miss a thing!

Okay – on to my card!  This one leans heavily on the fun Gingerbread & Peppermints Memories & More Card Pack and Cards & Envelopes!  All I had to add was the Frosted Gingerbread bundle.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Hand-Penned Flowers Memories & More Sneak Peek!

Happy Happy Hawwwmp Day!  We’re inching closer to the weekend – closer to the end of the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog AND closer and closer to the NEW 2021-2022 Annual Catalog going live!  Whoo-hoo!! While that’s exciting – be sure to check the Last Chance section in the Online Store – don’t miss out on your favorite retiring goodies! 🙂

Today is all about the new catalog!  I was finally able to pick up the Hand-Penned Memories & More Cards & Envelopes, to go with the Hand-Penned Memories & More Card Pack that I already had.  I added some goodness from the new Hand-Penned Petals stamp set.  Take a look-see:

The layout was loosely inspired by the sketch over at As You See It.

I started with one of the gorgeous – already-decorated-for-you! – Hand-Penned Memories & More Cards & Envelopes.  Then I selected a panel from the Hand-Penned Memories & More Card Pack.  I cut that down some and matted it on Highland Heather using Liquid Glue.

The Memories & More Card Packs include multiple different “stickers” you can use to decorate your cards and projects.  I selected one of the white ones and stamped the Hand-Penned Petals sentiment in Highland Heather.

I tied a small bow from a piece of Pool Party 3/8″ Sheer Ribbon and adhered it to the card front with a Glue Dot.

I used a few double-stacked Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop the sentiment over the top of the bow.

To finish off, I added a Mint Macaron Genial Gem and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped the pretty floral from Hand-Penned in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the corner of a Basic White panel.  I stamped the large flower once in stamped-off-once Highland Heather.  Then I turned the stamp slightly and stamped it again with full strength Highland Heather.  I stamped the smaller flower once in stamped-off-once Highland Heather.  I added leaves using the stamps in the set, in Mint Macaron.  Then I stuck on another of the Genial Gems, just cuz I could!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Highland Heather mat and into the Hand-Penned Memories & More Card, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

For the front of the Hand-Penned Memories & More Envelope – I stamped the Hand-Penned Petals floral in Tuxedo Black…

…and I didn’t have to do a thing to the pre-decorated envelope flap!

Et Voila!  Well, y’all – I’ll tell you what.  The Hand-Penned Memories & More goodies – be it the Card Pack or the Cards & Envelopes – are simply stunning!  So gorgeous and so perfect to pair with the Hand-Penned Petals stamp set.  But they can also be used all by themselves – there are even sentiments on many of the cards in the pack!

I hope you like!  No…I hope you LOVE it as much as I do! 🙂

Not sure if he’s missing Katy – or…just taking advantage of the fact that the sofa is more available to him.

I suppose it could be that he really really loves me…

Or maybe….

…hmmm.  Never mind.

Stampin’ Up! Dragonfly Dandy Garden Memories

Happy Tuesday!  Tuesday is sort of a flyover day, right?  Neither the start of the workweek (bleh) – not HAWWWWMP DAY, Mike – and for sure not the END of the workweek (whoo-hoo!) – it’s just sort of a…filler.  It’s cousin, Thursday, has similar identity issues, right?

Today is, however, National Puppy Day!  So…it’s got that going for it!! 😉

My card today has nothing to do with Tuesday – or puppies, for that matter – it’s just a quick and easy card using the truly cool Dandy Garden Memories & More Card Pack, with a matching Dandy Garden Envelope and…a little help from the coordinating Dragonfly Garden Bundle.  Take a look-see:

Thanks to the amazing Dandy Garden Memories & More Card Pack, this one is super easy!

I pulled one of the large cards from the pack and trimmed it down a smidge to accomodate a Bumble Bee mat for the card front.

I wrapped some Mossy Meadow 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim twice around the matted panel – securing it in the back with Glue Dots.

On a piece of Basic White, I stamped the Dragonfly Garden sentiment in Blackberry Bliss and cut it with a Tasteful Labels die.  I used the same die to cut a Bumblebee mat, then used Liquid Glue to adhere the two die cuts together.

I popped the matted sentiment over the top of the braided trim with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Then I tied a simple bow from the Mossy Meadow trim and adhered it with a Glue Dot.

I punched some tiny Blackberry Bliss dragonflies using the Dragonflies Punch (bundled with the Dragonfly Garden set) and adhered them with Liquid Glue – and that was it for the card front!

On the inside, I stamped a second Dragonfly Garden sentiment in Blackberry Bliss on a Basic White panel and added some of the pretty wildflowers in Bumble Bee.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Bumble Bee mat and into my Early Espresso card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

I did absolutely nothing to the already-perfectly-decorated Dandy Garden Memories & More Cards & Envelopes envelope!

Et Voila!  It took me a while to warm up to Memories & More Card Packs (I thought they were ONLY good for scrapbooking – but I was totally wrong!) but…this Dandy Garden Memories & More Card Pack is gorgeous!  And has SO many cool elements that you can use and use and use to create your card projects.  Or…even scrapbook pages!! 😉  And the Dragonfly Garden Bundle – well – it’s for sure one I hope makes it into the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog!!

I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Dandy Garden Memories & More Card Pack Sneak Peek!

Good morning and HAPPY HAWWMP DAY!

Also?  Happy Thanksgiving Day-eve. 🙂  I wish I could tell you we’re looking forward to dinner with our friends tomorrow – but…I decided on Tuesday that the risk-reward analysis just didn’t work out in favor of getting together in person. 🙁  I think we need to be cautious for a little while longer – and hope that things are a little less scary at Christmas.  We’re still going to share our sides – we’ll meet and have a handoff somewhere in full hazmat or something….  And may try to Zoom.

Danged COVID! 🙁


Well.  With all that – I decided a quick and fun and EASY card was in order – and I figured you might like a little sneak peek at the new Dandy Garden Memories & More Card Pack – with the matching (and GORGEOUS!!) Dandy Garden Memories & More Cards & Envelopes.  Take a look-see:
