Missing You

Stampin’ Up! Text Ya Later!

Good morning, y’all!  Hope your weekend is going well!  Mine’s going to be spent making cards.  And maybe concentrating on doing some nothing!  I’ll also be getting ready to do a live video tomorrow night – it’s looking good! 🙂

My card today uses a fun and cute new little stamp set called Text Ya Later – perfectly perfect for all your cards to all your kids – regardless of their age!  This clean and simple card is for my hubby – and is pretty typical of our texting conversations! 😉  Take a look-see:

My layout was inspired by the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches this week.

And the colors come from the TGIF Color Challenge.

I started with a piece of Whisper White card stock, matted on Berry Burst for the card front.

To make my “cell phone” – I stamped the image from Text Ya Later in Tranquil Tide on a piece of Thick Whisper White card stock, and gave it a quick fussy cut.

I added some text across the top in Berry Burst.  Then there’s some text bubbles in Tranquil Tide.  For “my” messages, I used the fill image in Text Ya Later, in stamped-off-once Lemon Lime Twist.  All the text and the smiley faces are Berry Burst.

I cut a similar size panel of Whole Lot of Lovely DSP (are you guys noticing how totally useful and versatile this gorgeous DSP is turning out to be?!?) and adhered my “phone” to it at a little angle, using some Liquid Glue.

I wrapped a piece of Berry Burst 5/8″ Finely Woven Ribbon around the card front, securing it in the back with scotch tape.  Then I made a little Lemon Lime Twist baker’s twine.  I cut a length of Whisper White Baker’s Twine and ran it across my Lemon Lime Twist ink pad a few times.  Once it was good and dry,  I made a couple of loops, securing them with SNAIL to the card front.  I popped the “cell phone” and it’s Whole Lot of Lovely “mat” on top with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a few text icons in Berry Burst, Lemon Lime Twist and Tranquil Tide to the card front and it was done!

On the inside, I added some Berry Burst Text Ya Later icons across the bottom of a Whisper White panel.

I SNAILd the panel to a Berry Burst mat and into my Thick Whisper White card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got some Text Ya Later icons across the front in Berry Burst and Tranquil Tide…

…and then I added some more Whole Lot of Lovely DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This is a sentiment-packed stamp set with really fun little sayings!  I think it would be a great set to enjoy with those tweens in your life – get them hooked on your favorite hobby!  Hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Gift of Love You Lots!

Happy Hawmmp Day!  Do I spell that different each week…?  Hmm…  maybe.

Maybe you know – or don’t – my hubs and I have been married for….26 years!   Yup – 26 years last April.  And we were together for a few before that.  Crazy, huh?  Yes, I married him when I was 14 – it’s the only possible way this could have happened! 😉

Or not.

Anyway – I miss him!  I miss our routine.  And knowing what he’s going to do or say before he does or says it. Even though sometimes that drives me nutso when I’m home! 😉

So – I decided to send him a card.  And I used a fun little Host-Exclusive set, called Lots of Love.  Now, this is a stamp set that it took me a while to decide I needed.  I mean…turtles?  Hedgehogs?  Elephant?  What the heck was I going to do with those?

Well – I still haven’t done anything with them – but this card uses the image that was the final deciding factor:

Gift of Love You Lots 8 - Stamps-N-Lingers
Seriously?  Just about as cute as it gets.  The set didn’t have the exact sentiments I wanted – but another of the Host sets: Gift of Love did. (didja notice how clever I was with the title of this blog post??  Go ahead and take another look – I’ll wait….)

So I used them both.  Take a look-see:
