Stampin’ Up! Many Mates Flowers For Every Season!

Happy Monday, y’all!

Well – once my back decided that it could calm down a bit on Sunday, the weekend went pretty well for me – we had a fun Inkin’ Krew meeting yesterday on Zoom – and we even made some cards “together’!  With our team spread out all over the country, it’s totally cool to be able to see everyone and laugh and craft together!!  We have an awesome team – and more folks joining us all the time – especially with the amazing joining special we’ve got going right now!

My card today is not one of the ones we worked on in our meeting – but you’ll get to see those in the next few days.  Today, I have a quick and super easy card for you to make with the beautiful Flowers For Every Season Memories & More card pack and…yes, again!…the Many Mates stamp set.  Take a look-see:

I borrowed the layout for this one from this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

I started with a piece of Pretty Peacock cardstock that I embossed in the new Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder and matted on Bumble Bee for the card front.

I pulled two of the smaller cards from the Flowers For Every Season Memories & More Card Pack and cut them down a bit.  Then I matted them on Bumble Bee card stock.

I adhered the first to the card front with Liquid Glue.

Using Glue Dots, I adhered a length of Bumble Bee 1/4″ 2020-2022 In Color RIbbon.

On the second panel – the one with the frame – I stamped a sentiment from Many Mates in Pretty Peacock.  Then I popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a Bumble Bee 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dot and the card front was done.

On the inside, I stamped a second Many Mates sentiment in Pretty Peacock on a Whisper White Panel.  Across the bottom of the panel, I adhered a Bumble Bee-matted strip of Flowers For Every Season DSP.

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got one of the flower stickers from the Flowers For Every Season Memories & More Card Pack on the front…

…and more Flowers For Every Season DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I do so love this Flowers For Every Season Memories & More Card Pack – it’s so handy and makes quick and easy cards so…quick and easy.  And beautiful!!

I hope you like!

House guard….POST!

On full alert.

I shall not eat while at my post.

I shall alert my family if there is a deer.  Or a mud dauber.  Or a leaf.

I shall stay ever vigilant.

The first, the last – yes, the very final defense….

I will not sleep…

Well – maybe just rest my chin for a minute….

Stampin’ Up! Field of Flowers Sneak Peek for Every Season

Happy Tuesday, y’all!  I’ve heard from a few folks who have received their catalogs from me – so…if you think you were on my list – be checking your mailboxes!  The USPS moved them pretty fast! 🙂

My card today is one that I made with my Pre-Order goodies which, oh-by-the-way!, YOU could select as part of your Starter Kit if you join right now (instead of waiting until the 3rd of JUNE!!)!  Ask me how!

No.  Really.  Ask me how and join the team!

You know you want to! 😉

Anywho – I pulled out the Field Of Flowers stamp set and combined it with some paper from the Flowers For Every Season DSP and the coordinating Memories & More Card Pack.  Take a look-see:

Easy peasy – and not a fussy-cut in sight! 😉

The layout for this one hails from the As You See It Challenge this week.

I started with a Just Jade card from the new Flowers For Every Season Memories & More Cards & Envelopes pack.

For the card front, I matted a piece of Flowers For Every Season DSP on a piece of Bumble Bee card stock.  Then I cut a coordinating piece with a Stitched Rectangle Die and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I matted a strip of yet another design from the Flowers For Every Season DSP on Bumble Bee and adhered it with Liquid Glue.  Then I wrapped a piece of the open weave ribbon from the new Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack around it – adhering it in the back with a couple of Glue Dots.

I cut down one of the small cards in the Flowers For Every Season Memories & More Card Pack.  Then I stamped the pretty sentiment from Field of Flowers in Shaded Spruce and matted it on Bumble Bee.

I popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals, added a Bumble Bee 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dot and the card front was done!

On the inside, on a Very Vanilla panel, I stamped a second sentiment from Field of Flowers in Shaded Spruce.  In the corner, I added the stems in Shaded Spruce and the sweet wild-flowers image in Crushed Curry.  And…I thought I was done.  But then…I spied with my little eye…the dragonflies in the set!  Love dragonfly images, so…on they went in Tuxedo Black!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Bumble Bee mat and into the Flowers For Every Season Memories & More Card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

The pre-printed envelope from the Flowers For Every Season Memories & More Cards & Envelopes got more of the Field of Flowers flowers on the front…

…and the flap is already decorated on the inside, so…done!

Et Voila!  You guys – I LOVE this Field of Flowers stamp set!  The big focal sentiment “always”, in the gorgeous font, is designed to work in combination with the other words and phrases in the set.  And…the flowers are wonderful!

And there is no denying the beauty of the Flowers for Every Season DSP, is there??

I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Timeless Oasis Memories Aloha!

Good morning!  It’s day….whatever!…of the Big Social Distancing of 2020.  It’s hard for me to keep track – since I work from home, the only real difference is severely curtailed trips to the grocery!  And no – “let’s call the Martins and get dinner tonight” for a while.  Which I DO miss.  And our friends just postponed their April wedding…which made me sad. 🙁   But – we’re all healthy and safe.  And won’t run out of food or…craft supplies any time soon. 😉

Speaking of – one of my very favorite suites in the Jan-Jun Mini Catalog is the Tropical Oasis.  I used that one – or parts of it! – today for my card.  And – the Tropical Oasis Memories & More Card Pack is the star of this show!  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one comes from this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

Now – this is a great card if you’ve got a party or some event that you need to go to and would like to NOT have inky fingers!

That’s right – no ink.  So stamping!  A little fussy cutting and embossing.  A die cut or two.  And…that’s it!  So….hang on – this is a quickie!

I started with a piece of Pool Party card stock that I embossed in the wonderful Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder, then matted on Real Red for the card front.

With SNAIL, I adhered a length of 5/8″ Burlap Ribbon.

From the Tropical Oasis Memories & More Card Pack, I pulled out two of the small cards with the yummy looking tropical coconut drink.

From one of the panels, I fussy cut the entire image.  I fussy cut just the umbrella from the second panel.

I popped the image over the ribbon with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Then I popped the fussy cut umbrella over the first image with more Dimensionals.

Using the sentiment die from In The Tropics, I cut three of the Aloha sentiment from Real Red and stacked them all up with Liquid Glue.

I adhered the stacked sentiment to the coconut – added three red gems from the Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels….and the card front was done!

On the inside, I used two stickers from the Tropical Oasis Memories & More Card Pack on a Whisper White panel.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Real Red mat and into my Soft Suede card base, and to adhere the card front to the front of the card, and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got a couple more Tropical Oasis Memories & More Card Pack stickers on the front…

…and a little Tropical Oasis DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I love all the fun and dare I say…luscious?…designs to be found in the Tropical Oasis Memories & More Card Pack.  And – although I didn’t use it on this card – the Timeless Tropical stamp is a wonderful set filled with even more tropical images!

If you don’t have this suite – quick take advantage of the last days of Sale-A-Bration and add it to your stash (while earning FREE goodies!).  I hope you like!

If you want to recreate this card – all the Stampin’ Up! products you need are listed down below along with the card cuts!

Signs of Spring at Finn’s house.

You probably think that last one is a picture of the beautiful pink azalea…

Well – it IS beautiful – but…look past it to the pond.  It’s really a picture of the most TRUE sign of Spring in the South.

Pine pollen EVERYWHERE!!  LOL

Stampin’ Up! Paneled Timeless Tropical Oasis for a Friend

Happy happy Hawwwmp Day!  Hope your week is going well! 🙂

I’ve got a sweet not-so-little card for you today.  It’s built on a Magnolia Lane Memories & More Large Specialty Card, with the matching envelope, so…it’s a substantial card!  And I used the Tropical Oasis goodies – including the Memories & More Card Pack – plus the Timeless Tropical stamp set with the bundled In The Tropics Dies.  Take a look-see:

 

The layout is inspired by the sketch challenge over at the Global Design Project this week.

I started with a piece of So Saffron card stock as a mat for my card front.  The card front itself is a large panel from the Tropical Oasis Memories & More Card Pack.  I cut the panel into 1″ wide strips and matted each of the strips on Pear Pizzazz.

Then I adhered the strips to the So Saffron panel with Liquid Glue.

I created a pineapple by cutting the “top” from Pear Pizzazz and the detailed bottom from So Saffron.  With Sponge Daubers, I brushed Pear Pizzazz ink over the top and So Saffron ink over the bottom to give them some dimension.  I adhered the So Saffron die cut to a piece of Pear Pizzazz (that I’d sponged with Pear Pizzazz ink) with Liquid Glue then cut around the pineapple to trim the excess and create a “back” for the pineapple.

Then I adhered the top and bottom to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I stamped the small Timeless Tropical flowers a few times on Very Vanilla – once in Grapefruit Grove, once in Terracotta Tile and a third time in stamped-off-once Terracotta Tile.  I used my Light Petal Pink Stampin’ Blend to color the petals.

I cut a couple of leaves from Pear Pizzazz.

Then I made the sentiment, stamping the phrase from Timeless Tropical in Grapefruit Grove on a Very Vanilla stip that I bannerized with my Paper Snips.

The final element is a short piece of 3/8″ Braided Linen Trim that I pulled apart at both ends.

Then it was time to build the collage!

I laid out all the pieces – and took the picture.

Then I started taking off a couple of layers and…took another picture.

I pulled all of the pieces off and started adhering them back down – in order – with Liquid Glue.

The final flower is added with a Stampin’ Dimensional.  I brushed that one with my Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush.

I used Glue Dots to tuck a couple of leaves from the Tropical Oasis Trinkets in amongst the flowers and die cut leaves.

I added a few Champagne Rhinestones to the flowers and card front – and it was done!

On the inside, I stamped the flower again in Terracotta Tile on a Very Vanilla panel.  Using a sticky note mask, I stamped around the flower – two small pineapples in Pear Pizzazz and two leaves in Old Olive.  I picked up the mask and used my Light Petal Pink Blend to color the flower, Light So Saffron Blend for the pineapples and Light Old Olive Blend for the leaves.  Then I tucked a few Champagne Rhinestones around and added one to the middle of the flower.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to my So Saffron mat and into the Magnolia Lane card, added the card front with Liquid Glue, and the card was done.

My Magnolia Lane Memories & More Large Specialty Envelope got the stamped images on the front (I didn’t color them in)…

…and I used the envelope liner that comes with the Magnolia Lane Memories & More Large Specialty Cards & Envelopes as a template and created my own liner.  I used Liquid Glue to adhere it inside the envelope.

Et Voila!  I love this Tropical Oasis Suite SO much – and it is AWESOME on the Magnolia Lane card!!  The Tropical Oasis DSP is one of the most stunning papers I’ve seen.  And the beautiful images, sentiments and cutting/embossing dies in the Timeless Tropical Bundle are wonderful and work perfectly to create a scene straight out of the Hawaiian Islands!  I hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix


My friend Jan and I, along with Finn’s….birth mother, Linda…have been on an ongoing group chat on our phones….pretty much since the day that Finn came home with us three-plus years ago.

Yesterday afternoon, Jan sent us a picture of Scout (Finn’s sister) sitting out on the lawn, sniffing the world.  Watching for….anything.

Linda responded with what Finn’s dog-mom… Bonnie….was doing at the time.

And so – I chimed in with….

Kind of all in the family.  All lazing away a Tuesday afternoon in their own “unique” way.   Genetics?  The common thread of The Force?

Who knows.  I DO know that I am grateful on a daily basis that Bonnie is a sleeper.  And that she passed that to my Finny-win.  Cuz…a dog that wants to sleep is a blessing indeed!  😉

Stampin’ Up! So Many Stars Before Christmas

Good Tuesday!  Hope everyone’s week is going well.  We’re trying to finish up the 2018 taxes – so…that sort of sucks.  But – we’re taking them to AL to the accountant on Thursday so I guess they’ll be “done” then! LOL!

My card today is a quick and easy one – thanks to the Night Before Christmas Memories & More Card Pack and the So Many Stars Bundle!  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is – loosely! – based on the sketch from the TGIF Challenge this week!

And I decided it fit pretty well with The Paper Players CAS challenge…

I started with one of the wonderful Night Before Christmas Memories & More Cards & Envelopes for the card base, and one of the smaller cards in the Night Before Christmas Memories & More Card Pack.  I adhered that small card to a Shaded Spruce mat and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

Next up, I pulled out the So Many Stars bundle – that includes the stamp set and the amazing Stitched Stars Dies – and some Gold Foil.  I cut a solid star and a detailed star from the Gold Foil and adhered them together with Liquid Glue.

I cut a couple of smaller stars – one from Shaded Spruce and one from Cherry Cobbler – and two detailed Gold Foil stars – and created those stacks as well.  Then I adhered those stars to the Gold Star with Liquid Glue.

I stuck a couple of Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back of the star-stack and used them to wind some of the gold tinsel from the Most Wonderful Time Product Medley.

I used some Glue Dots to adhere two lengths of Cherry Cobbler 3/8″ Striped Ribbon.  Then I used a couple more Glue Dots to adhere the stacked stars over top.

I finished off with a few gold stars from the Most Wonderful Time Medley – including one in the middle of the stacked stars!

On the inside I stamped a sentiment from So Many Stars in Cherry Cobbler to a Very Vanilla panel.  Then I added some stars in Golden Glitz Delicata and Shaded Spruce inks.  Over the sentiment, I added the scattered stars image (also from So Many Stars) in Golden Glitz Delicata Ink.

I used one of the large cards from the Night Before Christmas Memories & More Card Pack as a mat and adhered the panel to it and then inside the card base with Liquid Glue, and the card was done!

The Night Before Christmas Memories & More Cards & Envelopes include already-decorated envelopes – but…I added some stars and scattered-stars in Golden Glitz on the front…

…and on the flap.

Et Voila!  These Night Before Christmas Memories & More Cards & Envelopes are such a fun starting point for so many cards – especially at Christmas (but…don’t forget patriotic cards, too – add a little Night of Navy or Blueberry Bushel!) and when you ALSO use the Night Before Christmas Memories & More Card Pack – then the “easy” just got “peasy”!! 😉  And, I think the So Many Stars Bundle is SO pretty with all the wonderful images and sentiments and the gorgeous Stitched Stars Dies!  I hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix


Finn hates when one of the ponies rubs their neck on the stall door.  Or…their butt on the wall.  Or…make any noise whatsoever in their stalls.

It makes him crazy and he boing-boing-boings to the front of the offender’s stall, barking ferociously.

It’s quite menacing.

They are completely unimpressed and they ignore his annoyance COMPLETELY.

I’m sure that’s demoralizing for him! 😉

Out in the pasture, Cady – the younger pony – is wont to spend a considerable amount of time rubbing various parts of her body on almost any tree she can find.

She’s itchy, okay?  She can’t help it! And no – that tree does NOT make her butt look big.  It actually IS big – it’s part of her DNA and charm! 😉

As I sit on the porch after letting everyone out…I can tell when she’s “doing it”.

Yes – he’s “pointing” at her.

So…I holler….”CADY!!!  Get off that tree!!!”

It’s quite menacing.

She is completely unimpressed and she ignores my annoyance COMPLETELY.

It’s quite demoralizing for me! 😉

But – Finn, in a show of solidarity (and because he’s always looking for an excuse to boing-bounce-bark) he goes flying to the fence barking.

Guess – go ahead, guess!! – how much she cares about THAT!??

Yea.  Not.  Even.  A.  Bit.

😉

Stampin’ Up! Life is Grand Garden Lane Sneak Peek

Hey, y’all!  Hope your week is going well as we climb the crest of the hill to Hawwmp Day!

I’m busily making cards ahead in anticipation of packing up soon to start the car-stuffing process!  I’ve almost got enough to make it thru the weekend when I’ll have a chance of having my stamping room back in order!

I might outta stop buying more Stampin’ Up!, huh?  I mean – my rental’s not a semi truck!! 😉

The card I made for you today inks up another new goody from the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog – the Verdant Garden stamp set…and pairs it with a retiring set called Life is Grand.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one comes from the CAS(E) This Sketch challenge this week.

I started with a piece of Mint Macaron card stock and stamped the first image from Garden Lane in Mint Macaron in all four corners.  Then I added the second image in Mossy Meadow.  It’s a photopolymer set – so it’s easy to line up!

Then I matted the panel on Petal Pink for the card front.

I used my Stamparatus to make the sentiment, inking the Life is Grand image in Mossy Meadow and stamping it on a piece of Whisper White.  Then I cut it out with an Oval Layering Framelit.  I also cut a slightly larger scalloped oval from Petal Pink and adhered them together with Liquid.  Then I popped them onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

From a piece of printed Vellum in the Magnolia Lane Memories & More Card Pack, I fussy cut a few leaves.  Then I adhered one under the popped-up oval and one to the oval with Liquid Glue.  I stuck one of the pretty magnolia flower stickers from the Card Pack on, too.

I used the Mossy Meadow Linen Thread from the Magnolia Lane Ribbon Combo Pack to make a double-loop bow, which I adhered with a Glue Dot.  Over the top I added a double-length simple bow of Old Olive Linen Thread.  A Rhinestone Basic Jewel finished off the card front.

On the inside, I added a second Life Is Grand sentiment in Mossy Meadow to a Whisper White panel.  In the corner I added the Verdant Garden vine image in Mossy Meadow, filling in the leaves with a Light Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blend.  Over it, I adhered another flower from the Magnolia Lane Memories & More Card Pack and then popped on a Rhinestone Basic Jewel by the sentiment.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Petal Pink mat and into my Mint Macaron card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more of the Verdant Garden vine in Mossy Meadow and Mint Macaron – as well as a Magnolia Lane Memories & More Card Pack flower…

…and I used a coordinating design from the Garden Lane DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila! Garden Lane is lovely in many shades of green – and lends so perfectly to pairing with the complementary Magnolia Lane suite!  This pair is going to be a huge hit when the catalog goes live on 4 June!  I hope you like – and are warming up your snap-it-up-quick fingers! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Good Morning Magnolia Lane Thanks Sneak Peek

Happy Sunday, y’all!  Hope your weekend is going well!  I’m doing normal Sunday stuff…laundry…card making…getting Mexican food for dinner (Cinco de Mayo, you know!).  And hoping this is my last Sunday in Maryland!

Avengers was excellent.  That’s all I’m going to say.  Except… I hope Wayne wants to see it, too, so I can go a second time! 😉

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, but would like to see the replay, here it is on my YouTube channel!

One of the prettiest of the new suites (in a catalog chock-a-block full of pretty new suites!) is Magnolia Lane.  And that’s where my eye landed for this card.  I used the Magnolia Lane Memories & More Card Pack and the Large Specialty Memories & More Cards and Envelopes, plus the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set and bundled Magnolia Memories Dies.  Take a look-see:

The layout is from this week’s Tuesday Morning Sketches challenge.

I started with a piece of printed vellum from the Magnolia Lane Memories & More Card Pack, and used my Stampin’ Blends in Mossy Meadow and Petal Pink to color the BACK of the vellum.  That creates a stained glass look!  Then I used Glue Dots – “hidden” under the colored portions – to adhere the panel to a Sahara Sand panel for the card front.

On a piece of Whisper White, I stamped the large and gorgeous magnolia image from Good Morning Magnolia in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  Then I used the Mossy Meadow and Petal Pink Blends again.  I cut the flower with the matching die from the Magnolia Memory Die set.

I also cut a few leaves from Mossy Meadow.  And – I used a die in the set to cut out a few of the small magnolia buds from the Magnolia Lane DSP – how cool is that?!?

I stamped the Good Morning Magnolia sentiment in Tuxedo Black on Whisper White and cut it with a Stitched Rectangle die.  Finally – I used the edgelit in the Magnolia Memory Dies to cut two of the strips that you see in the background – these are actually the pieces LEFT OVER when you use the edeglit!  These are cut from a piece of the Magnolia Lane Large Specialty Memories & More Cards and Envelopes – I had some leftover from a previous card.  #SaveScraps 🙂

I built the collage with Liquid Glue – starting with the craft strips, then the large magnolia.  Next is the two Mossy Meadow die cut leaves and one of the die cut DSP magnolias.  Then I popped the sentiment on with Dimensionals.

I used some Glue Dots and adhered a few loops of Mossy Meadow Linen Thread (from the Magnolia Lane Ribbon Combo Pack).  Then I added two Magnolia Lane Cork Embellishments and the final die cut DSP flower.

On the side, I added a Petal Pink sticker/strip from the Magnolia Lane Memories & More Card Pack and a few loops of the Mossy Meadow Linen Thread.  A few Pearl Basic Jewels finished off the card front.

On the inside, I added a second Good Morning Magnolia sentiment in Tuxedo Black and a Pearl to a large card from the Magnolia Lane Memories & More Card Pack.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Sahara Sand mat and into my Magnolia Lane Large Specialty Memories & More Card, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

On the front of my Magnolia Lane Large Specialty Memories & More Envelope, I stamped the large Good Morning Magnolia flower, a bud and some leaves in Tuxedo Black.  Then I colored them with my Mossy Meadow and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends…

…and I used a little Liquid Glue to adhere the liner on the inside!  Guys – these beautiful liners come WITH the Magnolia Lane Large Specialty Memories & More Cards and Envelopes!  Bonus!

Et voila!  The Magnolia Lane is one of the most stunning suites in the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog!  I love that the Magnolia Memory Dies will cut images from the Magnolia Lane DSP!  As well as the more obvious stamped images from Good Morning Magnolia.  I hope you like!

We’re just a month away from this catalog going live – and all these products being available to you! Or….you COULD join my team NOW – and pick from this suite (plus many others in the Demonstrator Pre-Order!) to fill out your Starter Kit! Remember, you pay just $99 – and select $125 in product – and you’ll get free shipping of your kit, too!  Once you’re “in”, then you’ll get to enjoy at least a 20% discount on EVERYTHING you buy!  Give me shout if you have any questions!
