New Catalog Bundles

Stampin’ Up! Soft Seedlings Sneak Peek Thinking of You Card

Well – it happened.  The weekend flew by and Monday is here again!  On a BRIGHTER note – we’re only FOUR days away from the launch of the Jul – Dec 2022 Mini Catalog!  Yup – not even counting today – cuz…we already got up so the day is PAST! 😉  Are you ready for Friday?  It’s going to be awesome!!

I’ll be ordering Shares AND Special Bundles first thing on Friday morning so…if you’re not in on those yet…get busy!!

On Friday – you MIGHT miss a sweet little stamp set – called Soft Seedlings – when you’re placing your order.  Don’t!  Do not miss it!  It’s super sweet and simple.  It’s what I used today – along with the new Leaf Fall 3D Embossing Folder and some very cool Natural Finish 7/8″ Ribbon (which…you can actually get right now!).  AND – I have a cool coloring technique for you!  Check it out!

The layout for this one is from the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge this week!

And I was inspired by the Hand Stamped Sentiments photo challenge!

I started by embossing a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ piece of Early Espresso cardstock in the Timber 3D Embossing Folder.

For this card, I used the Baby Wipe Technique – have you heard of it?  Probably – it’s been around for a minute. 🙂

I placed a baby wipe in an empty stamp case and used my Stampin’ Ink Refills – in Pumpkin Pie and Mango Melody mostly – with some Cajun Craze and Daffodil Delight dropped in here and there to create a what looks like a hot mess, right?!

Using that hot mess as an ink pad, I inked the large leaf from the Soft Seedlings stamp set and stamped it on a piece of Kraft 6″ x 6″ Paper.  I cut the image out using the fourth from largest Deckled Rectangle Die.

Then I embossed the panel in the new Leaf Fall 3D Embossing Folder.

I cut a length of Natural Finish 7/8″ Ribbon and – again using my baby wipe as an ink pad – stamped the small leaf image from Soft Seedlings all over it.  I lightly frayed the ends and adhered it to the Timber-embossed Early Espresso panel with Stampin’ Seal+.

Over the top, I adhered the Deckled Rectangle with Liquid Glue.

On another length of the Natural Finish 7/8″ Ribbon, I stamped the sentiment from Soft Seedlings in Cajun Craze ink.  I cut a banner into one end and then adhered it to the embossed card front with a couple of tiny staples – from a non-Stampin’ Up! Craft stapler.

Then I used Liquid Glue to adhere the entire panel to the front of my Early Espresso card base.

I added a few Rustic Metallic Adhesive-backed Dots and the card front was done!

For the inside, I cut the largest Deckled Rectangle from a piece of Kraft 6″ x 6″ Paper.  Then I used the baby wipe “ink pad” and stamped the large leaf twice across the bottom.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the die cut to the inside of the Early Espresso card base and the card was done.

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got the large Soft Seedlings leaf on the front…

…and more of the small leaf all over the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  The baby wipe technique is really cool – every time you stamp it’s a little different – and it’s PERFECT for Fall-themed cards!  The big bold leaf from Soft Seedlings – a flyover set for sure, but…circle back! – is a great fit to use with it!  Get it – and the Leaf Fall 3D Embossing Folder! – on 1 Jul 2022!!  And – don’t forget about the Natural Finish 7/8″ Ribbon – it’s really pretty all by itself – but…the fact that you can COLOR it AND stamp it is…amazeballs!!

I hope you like!

Who could resist this face?!?

You think you could?

Look closer….

Don’t fool yourselves, folks – no human person can resist.

Stampin’ Up! Gathered Wheat Sneak Peek Thank You with Video Tutorial

‘Sup, my peeps??  Having a good weekend so far?  We DID actually get the van washed yesterday – AND we were able to get the remains of half the bugs in Kansas and Oklahoma off – thanks to some magical potion that the car wash manager brought to us.  AND two trips thru the machine!  So…it’s all bright and shiny again!  Yeah!!

I made another sneak peek from the Jul – Dec 2022 Mini Catalog for you and, surprise!, it uses a Fall bundle that you can get as part of one of my Special Bundles. Yes – Bundle #6 (again!).  The pretty Gathered Wheat stamp set and bundled Wheat Dies has pretty much ALL the things I love!  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Rustic Hello Harvest Leaf Fall Sneak Peek Card

Good morning and welcome back to the work week!  I wish I could say that we’re back in the swing of it all but… we sort of aren’t!  It’s taking us a second to re-adjust to the routine.  We may or may not have spent yesterday watching the latest James Bond movie.  Which got exactly…NOTHING done! 🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️  Although I DID manage to make a pot of pinto beans with the ham we brought home from my Mom’s!  So…there’s that!

Today.  TODAY is the day we really get back to it –  I’m just sure of it!

I did manage to get off my hindquarters and make a card for you – I used one of my new goodies from the Jul – Dec 2022 Mini Catalog (coming in less than 2 weeks on 1 July!!) that had been waiting for me to get home to it, and was one of the ones I was especially excited about!  It’s the Hello Harvest Bundle and coordinating Rustic Hello DSP.  And you know how I feel about embossing folders so it should come as no surprise that I pulled out the new Leaf Fall 3D Embossing Folder! Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Nourish & Flourish Kit Coming Soon!

Welcome to the weekend, y’all – and it’s Father’s Day weekend at that!  I assume that you’ve pulled out the grill and given it a good shake-down.  All in prep for the Big Day! 🙂

So – last weekend, when my friend Sally was up at my Mom’s visiting us, I decided we should put together the cool Nourish & Flourish Kit (coming on 1 July!!) that I’d stuck in the car.  I’m a planner-aheader that way! 🙂

And that’s exactly what I did – and we had fun putting it together.  Y’all – this kit is so easy to do – this was Sally’s first go at card making and I did mine on my lap.  Literally!  And…look what we made!

Stamps-N-Lingers… Finn is Turning SIX Today!

Good Friday the 17th of June, y’all!!  Hope you’re ready for the weekend and have some fun plans!  Ours include…driving! 🙄🙄🙄🙄

BUT.  Today is Finn’s Sixth Birthday -so in celebration…this post is one GINORMOUS Finn Fan Fix! 🎂🎂🎂🎂🎂🎂🎂 (seven cakes – see?).  WARNING:  if you don’t want to see A LOT of pics of Finn….well…then…this is NOT the post for you! 😂😂😂😂

I spent a little time the other day going down a photographic memory lane trying to pick pictures that would do his wonderfulness justice.  You may or may not be surprised to learn that I have a TON (digitally speaking!) of pictures of this fur bucket.  I “pared” them down.  To 230.  Which is WAAY too many.  So then I started sort of sorting them. And STILL had too many – but…I tried to pick just a few for you!  Okay.  I admit – it’s STILL too many!! 🙂

I have pics of him as a baby (we got him when he was 4 months old…. he was so stinkin’ cute!

Stampin’ Up! Wisteria Wishes Triple Time Card

Good morning again!  Just a reminder – this is the last day to take advantage of my Special Bundles from the 2022-2024 Annual Catalog – don’t miss out on an opportunity to save some money and add to your card-making stash!

My Zoom the Craftroom session was really fun yesterday – I had a few team members on – Carol Buckalew (from Inky Bee Stampers) and Barb Fadel – and long-time customer Sharon Harris.  We got to talking about the Triple Time Technique – yet another team member has done a few in the last week (Terry Lynn Bright – from TL’s BrightSpot).  It’s one of my fave techniques – that I haven’t done for a while – so…we decided to make a card together!

I pulled out the Wisteria Wishes stamp set and a little cardstock – set up my camera – and away we went!  Take a look-see at what we created!
