Stampin’ Up! Wildly Happy with a Video Tutorial for The Paper Players

Hey y’all – it’s Sunday, which means I’ve got another fun challenge for you from the Paper Players – it’s a Theme Challenge from the talented LeAnne this week and it’ll for sure jump-start your creative mojo!  I hope you’ll come and play along.  🙂

If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video, I appreciate you spending some of your weekend with me!  If not, but you’d like to see the replay on YouTube…here ’tis!

When I saw the theme for this week, I first thought “giraffe”.  Loves me some giraffes.  But then I remembered that I also kinda love elephants.  So…I pulled out the sweet Wildly Happy stamp set and a few die sets and….take a look-see:

And here’s this week’s Paper Players Theme challenge!  Hope you’ll challenge your inner zoologist and join the fun and show us your projects!  I can’t wait to see what you create!  🙂

And the layout is from the CAS(E) This Sketch challenge this week!

This one is just a few die cuts and some stamping – easy peasy!  So…here we go!

I started with a panel of Whisper White and, in the bottom corner, I stamped the sweet little sentiment from the Wildly Happy set in Granny Apple Green.  Then I ran the panel thru the die cutting/embossing machine in the Tufted 3D Embossing Folder.  I matted the panel on Daffodil Delight for the card front.

Using Liquid Glue, I adhered an Ornate Layers rectangle die cut from Granny Apple Green Brights 6″ x 6″ DSP.

The next layer – from the Stitched So Sweetly die set – is cut from Daffodil Delight DSP (also in the Brights pack) and adhered with Liquid Glue.

For the art, I stamped the sweet elephant mama and baby in Gray Granite on Whisper White and cut it with a square Stitched Shapes Die.  Then I colored them with my Gray Granite Stampin’ Blends Combo Pack and popped them onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a Granny Apple Green Glitter Enamel Dot and, with a Glue Dot, a small bow tied from Daffodil Delight 1/4″ Ruched Ribbon and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a second sentiment from Wildly Happy in Granny Apple Green on a Whisper White panel. A Daffodil Delight-matted strip of Granny Apple Green Brights 6″ x 6″ DSP across the bottom finished it off.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Daffodil Delight mat and into my Granny Apple Green card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got mom and kid on the front…

…and some Daffodil Delight Brights 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap!

Et Voila!  Wildly Happy is such a sweet little stamp set – with four different little “families” and several nice sentiments in beautiful fonts!

And the Tufted background, Ornate Layers, Stitched So Sweetly and Stitched Shapes all worked to give this card lots of texture and fun, don’t you think?  This exact card could be made more gender-specific just by picking different DSP  and ink colors – and any of the four animals groupings would make for an adorable card!  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!

Stampin’ Up! Wildly Happy Video Tutorial Sneak Peek

Morning, y’all!  Welcome to the weekend!  GA is officially locked down.

I DID go to Sam’s yesterday – I HAD to have my bags of shredded lettuce.  It’s a mainstay of my diet program and…I gotta come out the other side of this still maintaining my weight.  So…needs must.  I was masked and armed with a huge bottle of Lysol Wipes.  Wiped everything as I took it off the shelf, scanned the barcode (to avoid the nasty cash register area), tucked each item into one of my Thirty One Totes that I’d placed in the basket, wiped it all AGAIN as I put it in the car.  Sprayed the totes with Lysol when I got home.  Shucked my clothes at the washer and took a shower.

I’m trying not to buy into the whole “cray cray” but…I’m definitely nibbling at the edges! 😉

So…tonight, let’s get together on Facebook – I’ll go live at 7pm Eastern, over on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page.  We’ll make a sweet and easy little new baby card, using the Wildly Happy stamp set (from the Annual Catalog).  Take a sneaky peek!

Yep – it’s in one of my fave color schemes!

Hope you’ll be able to join me.

Tonight.  7pm eastern.  Right here.

Have I told you that Finn likes peppermints?

I’m sure I have.

Turns out he even likes…

…wrappers.

Yes – he dug one (or five…) out of the trash…

Stampin’ Up! Just Us Girls Guest Designer Witty-Cisms Welcome Baby

Good morning, my peeps!  We’re three-quarters of the way thru my “term” as a Guest Designer at the Just Us Girls Challenge! Which is why I’m in your Inbox so early!  I’m pretty sure you won’t see this for a few hours, but…hopefully it’s a nice thing to wake up to! 🙂

This week is a color challenge – and I interpreted the colors in a not-so-obvious way!  I pulled out the new Witty-Cisms stamp set and used some Neutrals and 2019-2021 DSP to help me out.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Just Hatched Dino Days

Merry Monday, my peeps!  Back at it, heh?  Hope your week goes well and with little stress!

For some reason, I’ve been unusually drawn to stamp sets and bundles in the new catalog that seem to be oriented towards kids and babies.  That’s not my usual, but…there’ve been several that really made me smile – and buy them!

One such bundle is the cute Dino Days stamp set – bundled with the Dino Dies – and the coordinating Dinoroar DSP.  So I pulled that out for today’s sweet little new baby card.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one was – maybe loosely? – inspired by this week’s TGIF Challenge.

And the color scheme is from this week’s Color Throwdown.

I started with one of my fave papers from the Dinoroar DSP and matted it on Mango Melody for the card front.  I used a small panel of Whisper White for the art panel.

I stamped the too-cute Dino Days dino-dude in Mango Melody and gave him some Pretty Peacock spines.  Underneath him, I stamped some fronds in Pretty Peacock – stamping a couple of times without re-inking.  That let me have “different” colors without using “different” colors! 🙂

I matted the panel on Mango Melody and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

To make the egg, I cut two of the dies from the Dino Dies in Whisper White.  I added some little circles in Pineapple Punch – then I used a Sponge Dauber to sponge on some Mango Melody (I got this idea from the samples in the catalog!).

On one egg shell, I stamped the Dino Days sentiment in Lovely Lipstick.  I popped that one on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added the second shell with Stampin’ Dimensionals – then added a Dinoroar Enamel Shape – sort of like a hinge.  And that was it for the card front!

On the inside, I stamped a second (and my favorite!!) sentiment from Dino Days in Lovely Lipstick on a Whisper White panel.  Over top I added a Mango Melody Dino-guy with stamped-off-once Pretty Peacock spines.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Mango Melody mat and into a Pineapple Punch card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another Mango Melody and Pretty Peacock dino-person on the front…

…and I used a little more of that totes-adorbs Dinoroar DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I’m guessing that you can see why this Dino Days stamp set and matching Dino Dies appeals to me?  Oh – did I mention that several of the dies cut out images on the Dinoroar DSP?  I didn’t?  Well – they DO! 😉  I hope you like!

Yesterday, we went to have Father’s Day with our friends.  As is the norm, I was tasked with deviled eggs and dessert.

Fortunately, I had a sous chef…

He tried to convince me that the sous chef gets to lick the beater…

And THEN he tried to convince me that eggs are good for dogs…

He’s pretty persuasive, really.  Also…persistent! 😉

Okay – confession time.  I put the bowl down on the floor after I’d pulled out all the egg filling!

As I’ve said – I’m not a MONSTER!!

Stampin’ Up! Fable Friends and First Steps for the Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop!

Good mornin’, y’all – welcome to another edition of Amy’s Inkin’ Krew team blog hop!  Each month we make projects centered around a theme – and this month our theme is Celebrate Spring!  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 to make a card to celebrate the arrival of a tiny human – seemed like a spring-time activity to me!

Or…is that just racehorses…hmmm… 😉

To make my baby card, I pulled out the Fable Friends and First Steps stamp sets from the Occasions catalog.  And I set them atop some Buffalo Check plaid.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Little Twinkle Double-Easel Fun Fold

Good Saturday morning, y’all!  Hope you have a wonderful weekend planned!  I’ll be working AND it’s supposed to be 110F!  YIKES!

If you were able to join me last night for my sort of “pop-up” Facebook Live video – thank you so much!  If not – but you’d like to see how to make today’s fun-fold…check the instant replay right here!

I’ve seen some Double Easel cards around in the blog-i-sphere in the past couple of weeks and I love a “regular” single-easel card, so…figuring TWO must be twice as good, I decided to do one of my own!  I made mine with the Little Twinkle stamp set and coordinating Twinkle Twinkle DSP.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Little Twinkle Fun Fold Video Sneak Peek

Hey folks!  It’s Friday!  But for me – that doesn’t mean it’s almost the weekend.

Well.  It DOES – it just doesn’t mean I’ll be off work!

We’re headed into long days and few days off as we get spun up, so…

I realized the other day that doing a Facebook Live Video on Sunday may be…problematic…

So – I decided to try to do it tonight.  This is definitely the last video tutorial until after I get back from the cruise.  I’ll do some videos ON the cruise for you – not necessarily at set times, so be sure you’ve liked my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page so that you’re notified!  I hope to share the ship and maybe some glaciers and whales with you while we’re gone!

But – I digress.  Tonight, we’ll try to get together for that last time – I hope to be back to the hotel by 5 (8 eastern), but…you might watch.  I’ll try to post an update if we’re going to be late.

And what will we be making?  I’m going to share a new-to-me fun fold and it’ll feature the new Twinkle Twinkle Suite of goodies!  Take a sneaky peek!

Stampin’ Up! Sweet Little Something Baby Bear

Happy Monday, y’all.  Stated with no small amount of sarcasm.  Its cold – it’s muddy – and it’s a work day.  A trifecta of awesomeness!  Bleh!

If you were able to join me last night for our Facebook Live video, thanks so much and I hope you enjoyed it!  If not and would like to see how to make a double-loop bow, some Stamparatus-ing, a little masking and sponging and the Black Ice technique….then here’s the sort-of-instant-but-totally-not replay on YouTube!

The card we worked on last night used the Sweet Little Something stamp set from the Occasions catalog, plus a sentiment from the Baby Bear set (Annual).  Take a look-see: Continue reading
