Stampin’ Up! Succulent Queen Ann’s Lace & Dragonflies with Video Tutorial

Good morning! And happy Sunday!  I hope you’re having a great weekend – maybe warming up a bit?  We had a gorgeous day yesterday and spent much of it getting mulch from the landfill (I know – it’s a glamorous life we lead – don’t be envious!) and getting our two new beds in place.  Today I think we have to hit Sam’s to see if we can exchange our mixed-gender Martha Washington asparagus for more all-boy-all-the-time Jersey Giants.  See?  Glamour glamour! 😉

If you were able to spend some of your weekend with me on my Facebook Live video last night, I appreciate it!  If not, here’s the replay on YouTube!

This card features a pretty mix of tools – the Potted Succulent die cut and Dragonflies Punch from the Jan-Jun 2021 Mini Catalog as well as the sweet Queen Anne’s Lace stamp set from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.  It’s perfect to send to a friend going thru any sort of tough time – take a look-see:

I played with the Global Design Project CASE The Designer challenge – pulling florals and texture and the polka dots on the card base – from the inspiration project.

My focal color – Mossy Meadow – is my answer to the As You See It challenge!!

And – the remainder of the color palette is from the Fab Friday challenge1

To begin, I placed the polka dot mask from the Basic Pattern Decorative Masks over the front of my Mossy Meadow card base.  Using a Blending Brush, I added Mossy Meadow dots around the edges of the card.

Next, I adhered a piece of Mossy Meadow cardstock to a piece of Adhesive Sheet and ran it thru the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine with the pretty background die from the Potted Succulents Die set in place.  I removed the backing of the adhesive sheet and adhered the die cut to another piece of Mossy Meadow – then I trimmed it down to size with my Paper Trimmer.

I matted the panel on Mint Macaron to create the card front.  Then I wrapped some Linen Thread around the panel twice, tying a bow on the left side.

On a small piece of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the main floral image from the Queen Anne’s Lace stamp set in Mossy Meadow.  I added the fill for the flower tops in stamped-off-once Mint Macaron.

Underneath, I stamped the Queen Anne’s Lace sentiment in Calypso Coral.  Then I matted the panel on Mint Macaron and popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I punched three little dragonflies, using the aptly-names Dragonflies Punch, from Highland Heather and Vellum cardstocks.  Using my Fine Tip Glue Pen, I adhered the vellum punches to the Highland Heather punches.  When dry, I curled them with my Bone Folder, then brushed the wings with my Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush.  When it was dry, I ran the little guys thru the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine tucked in my Tasteful Textiles 3D Embossing Folder.

Finally – I added them to the card front with Liquid Glue and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped a second sentiment from Queen Anne’s Lace in Calypso Coral on a Basic White panel.  In the corner, I added the floral again in Mossy Meadow and stamped-off-once Mint Macaron.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Mint Macaron mat and into my Mossy Meadow card base – popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Basic White Medium Envelope got more of the Queen Anne’s Lace floral on the front…

…and some little more masked and blended Mossy Meadow polka dots on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I have to thank Brian King for the idea for the tone-on-tone with the Potted Succulent die cut – it’s really stunning – and using the Adhesive Sheets made it so easy!  Queen Anne’s Lace is one of those little flyover stamp sets in the big catalog – but it’s one that has such a sweet floral image and really perfect sentiments. The gorgeous die in the Potted Succulents die set makes such a statement, doesn’t it?  And – not for nuthin’ – you can get the Simply Succulents bundle – save 10%! – AND be all ready for the March Online Tutorial when you place your order in March! What a totally subtle hint THAT was!  😉

I hope you like!

Y’all – don’t miss out on the last day of Sale-A-Bration, okay?  That’s right – THIS IS IT!! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Brilliant Wings and a Welcoming Window Fun Fold with Video Tutorial

Good morning and happy Friday!  Sale-A-Bration is SOOO close to being over!  If there are still some of the free goodies you’re wanting – now’s the time!  And – if you’ve given any thought at all to joining the SU! team – THIS is an awesome time to do it!  The wonderful Starter Kit PLUS 200 FREE sheets of brand new Designer Series Paper!  Check out all the benefits of joining right here – then give me a holler and let’s get you hooked up! 🙂

I’ve also got my Butterfly Bouquet Special Bundle – with some add-ons! – available for you to order.  Check it out down below! 🙂

On to the business at hand! If you were able to join me for my YouTube live yesterday, I appreciate you spending part of your day with me.  If not, here’s the replay!

I made an “impossible” card for you on this one – yep, it’s literally called an Impossible Fold.  But it’s totally possible! 🙂  My friend and teammate, Terry Lynn Bright, made one the other day and shared it on her site – and made me remember how much I like this fold!  For this particular one, I took the opportunity to showcase some new Butterfly Bijou 6″ x 6″ DSP and the stunning Brilliant Wings dies – both coming next week (and available to order with me right now in a money-saving bundle!).  Welcoming Windows provided a sentiment and some pretty florals.  Take a look-see:

The color palette is from the Color Throwdown challenge this week!

I started with a piece of Calypso Coral paper from the Butterfly Bijou DSP pack and adhered it to a Blushing Bride base with Liquid Glue.  That’s the base of the card right there!

Next, I made the Impossible Fold from a 4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of Bermuda Bay cardstock (I used Misty Moonlight in the video!).  I scored it and cut as shown on the video and this template…

By holding the left side of the cut cardstock and “twisting” the right side, I created the actual fold.  It’s easier to see what the heck I’m talking about on the video! 🙂

Using my Stampin’ Trimmer again, I cut two 2 1/2″ x 3 7/8″ pieces of non-directional (meaning it doesn’t matter how to use them – there’s no right-side-up or down – which means both these cuts are identical) Butterfly Bijou DSP according to this template.

 

I adhered my L-shaped pieces to the card front with Liquid Glue.

The sentiment, from the Welcoming Window stamp set, is stamped in Magenta Madness on the right side of a piece of Basic White cardstock.  Then I added the little fluer-de-do corner in Bermuda Bay.  I adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I used a Magenta Madness and Blushing Bride butterfly cut from a piece of Butterfly Bijou 6″ x 6″ DSP with the large die in the Brilliant Wings die set.  It’s adhered to the sentiment panel with Liquid Glue.  Tip – be sure that it’s high enough that the bottom of the wing doesn’t interfere with the pop-up sentiment panel.

I cut a Vellum cardstock butterfly with one of the detailed dies in Brilliant Wings and adhered it with my Fine Tip Glue Pen.

Finally – I colored two Pearl Basic Jewels with my Dark Bermuda Bay Stampin’ Blend and added them to the sentiment panel.

On the back, I stamped the vase from Welcoming Window in Calypso Coral on a Basic White panel.  Then I added the leaves image in Bermuda Bay and the flowers in Magenta Madness.  The fleur-de-doo corner is there in Bermuda Bay.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Bermuda Bay mat and onto the back of the card base and the card was done.

My Basic White Medium Envelope got the Welcoming Window floral arrangement and the fleur-de-do on the front…

…and more of the Butterfly Bijou 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  How fun is this fold?!?  It looks – literally! – impossible, but…now you know that it is not!  The new Butterfly Bouquet with it’s wunnermus Brilliant Wings die set is a perfect choice – and will let you do all sorts of color combinations!  In the video – I replaced Bermuda Bay with Misty Moonlight…

Cool, cool paper, y’all!  And the fact that the dies cut the butterflies right from the DSP is…amazeballs!!

I also love the sweet florals and sentiments in the Welcoming Window stamp set, don’t you??

I hope you like!!

If you’d like to recreate this card, all the products and card cuts are listed below!

My lap is a pretty popular spot in the evening.

Sometimes Katy lets Finn sit right by her so she can rub her face on his face.  Sometimes he licks her ear.

Other times – they just agree to not even look at each other, and just watch a little television.

Stampin’ Up! Vine Design Heal Your Heart Pet Sympathy Card

Happy Tuesday, y’all!  We’ve had a spring snap (not trying to rub it in to my friends who are still cold and snowy!) and so it’s hard to stay inside and work!  I even planted seeds inside to get them started.  Too early?  Well…maybe.  But…couldn’t even resist!

My card today is one I did while we were chatting on my Zoom the Craftroom yesterday (I hope you’ll join us one day if you’re one of my customers who’ve ordered this month!! – and…it was nice to get a little feedback from my friends!).  This is a pet sympathy card – nope – do not even need one right now (wheeew!) but it’s good to have one on hand, right?  I used the pretty Vine Design Bundle, the Cat Punch and…the Heal Your Heart stamp set (free for a few more days until Sale-a-Bration ends on the 28th!!).  All set atop some pretty Love You Always Specialty DSP.  Take a look-see:

The color palette for this one is from the Inspire. Create Challenge this week.

And – The Paper Players challenge is a pretty obvious influence!  I think it’s pretty clean and simple.  😉

I started by adhering a piece of the Sahara Sand paper from Love You Always Specialty DSP to a Rococo Rose mat with Liquid Glue for the card front.  Then I matted a smaller piece and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I stuck a piece of Sahara Sand cardstock to a piece of Foam Adhesive Sheet.  Then I cut it with the detailed rectangle die in the Flowering Vine Die set.  I peeled the backing off and adhered it to the middle of the card.

I punched a black cat with the Cat Punch (sorry – Department of Redundancy Department! 😳) and adhered it with Liquid Glue.

On a piece of Blushing Bride, I stamped the sentiment outline from Vine Design in Blushing Bride ink.  I added a sentiment from the same set in Tuxedo Black and cut it with the matching die in the Flowering Vine set.  Then, I adhered it with Liquid Glue.

I added a couple of Pastel Pearls and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a sentiment – one of my favorites! – from Heal Your Heart in Tuxedo Black to a Basic White panel.  In the corners, I added the vine from Vine Design in Sahara Sand ink.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Rococo Rose mat and into my Basic Black card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Basic White Medium Envelope got the Vine Design image in Sahara Sand on the front…

… and more of the Love You Always Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I really love the tone-on-tone that I got with the Flowering Vine die cut in Sahara Sand cardstock on the foil-embossed Love You Always Specialty Paper, don’t you?  And Vine Design has several handy sentiments that fit perfectly in label die cut!  Heal Your Heart – what can I say?  It’s free with a $50 purchase for another couple of days.  And it’s filled with perfect sentiments!

If you’d like to recreate this card, all the products and card cuts are listed below!

Finn Fan Fix 

 

It’s getting to be time to start seeds inside – the days are getting longer and the spring weather is sneaking in every couple days.

I found an extra starting tray in the barn, so I brought it back to the house.

Decided to have Finn do a little work!

He may or may not have stopped to have a little gnaw on the corner… 🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️

Stampin’ Up! Dragonfly Garden Dandy Laser Cut Thanks

Good morning and happy Monday!  We had a gorgeous couple of days here in north Georgia and have heard that the country is thinking about warming up so that’s all good.  We even washed the van yesterday (along with 100 of our closest friends!) 😉

My card today is a reach-back to the awesome Dragonfly Garden bundle and pretty Dandy Garden DSP.  This time, I also used a cool die cut panel from the Dandy Laser Cut Paper.  Take a look-see:

This layout was inspired by the challenge at Freshly Made Sketches this week.

I started by matting a piece of Misty Moonlight Dandy Garden 6″ x 6″ DSP on a Bumble Bee mat with Liquid Glue for the card front.

Next, I cut a narrower piece – with the design going 90 degrees to the card front – and adhered it to a Bumble Bee mat of its own.  I set these in place on the card front – no adhesive just yet.

I selected a panel from the Dandy Laser Cut Paper and positioned it where I wanted it on the card front.

Using the narrow matted strip as a guide – I put sticky notes in place to create a mask.

Once the mask was secure, I picked it – and the laser cut panel – up and removed it from the card front.

Then, using a Blending Brush, I colored between the mats with Bumble Bee ink.

I adhered the narrow strip to the card front with Liquid Glue, then popped the laser cut panel in place with small pieces of Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Hint:  this part is a bit persnickety, not gonna fib ya.  So…take your time – and then be sure that you line up the colored section of the panel with the DSP strip.

I cut a piece of Blackberry Bliss paper from the Dandy Garden 6″ x 6″ DSP with the largest circle Stitched Shapes die and used Liquid Glue to adhere it to the card front.

On a piece of Basic White, I stamped the Dragonfly Garden sentiment in Blackberry Bliss and punched it with the Tailored Tag Punch – then adhered it with Liquid Glue.

The dragonfly is cut using the Dragonflies Punch (bundled with Dragonfly Garden) from one of the designs in the Dandy Garden 6″ x 6″ DSP.  I adhered it with Liquid Glue.

I colored an Opal Round with my Dark Misty Moonlight Stampin’ Blend, adhered it to the sentiment and the card front was done.

On the inside, I added the wildflower image from Dragonfly Garden in Bumble Bee on a Basic White panel.  Then I added some little dragonflies in Misty Moonlight.

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

My Basic White Medium Envelope got more from Dragonfly Garden sweetness on the front…

…and another piece of Dandy Garden 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  The Dragonfly Garden stamp set and bundled Dragonflies Punch will live on my favorites list for a long time – how about you?  It’s just wonderful and is so pretty when combined with the two coordinating papers…Dandy Garden 6″ x 6″ DSP and Dandy Laser Cut Paper!

I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Art Gallery & Brilliant Wings with Video Tutorial

Good morning and happy Friday!  Only a few days left for Sale-A-Bration, y’all – so…if there are still some of the free goodies you’re wanting – now’s the time!

I’ve also got my Butterfly Bouquet Special Bundle – with some add-ons! – available for you to order.  Check it out down below! 🙂

Speaking of Butterfly Bouquet, I’m a little obsessed with the Brilliant Wings die cut butterflies right now!  If you were able to join me for my YouTube live yesterday, I appreciate you spending part of your day with me – and getting another peek at them!   If not, here’s the replay!

For this one, I paired the Brilliant Wings butterflies with sentiments from the Art Gallery Bundle – including the cool die cut sentiment from Floral Gallery! – and a bit of Fine Art Floral DSP.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one – although it’s not a mini slim card  – comes from the current Mojo Monday sketch challenge!

Here’s a cool thing.  This particular design in the Fine Art Floral DSP is an exact match to the design in the Golden Garden Specialty Acetate!  I’ve used that here to add a little pizzazz to this card!  You can get 6 card fronts from a 12″ x 12″ sheet of both papers!!

I cut a piece of the Fine Art Floral and the corresponding piece of the Golden Garden Specialty Acetate, then I stacked them up (aligning the pattern) and cut the center out with a Stitched Rectangle Die.

I adhered the frame and cutout piece of the Fine Art Floral DSP to a Terracotta Tile mat using Liquid Glue.  Then I adhered the acetate piece using my Fine Tip Glue Pen – putting little dots of glue only behind the printed parts of the acetate.

I cut a piece of Basic White with the largest square Stitched Shapes Die and popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Next, I cut the big sentiment from Floral Gallery in Terracotta Tile – then adhered just three of the words to the square with Liquid Glue.

I wrapped a piece of Terracotta Tile Scalloped Edge Linen Ribbon around the bottom of the panel, securing it in back with Glue Dots.

From a piece of the Butterfly Bijou 6″ x 6″ DSP (coming on 2 March), I used the big die in the Brilliant Wings die set (also 2 March!) to cut 6 butterflies.  I used a couple of smaller detailed dies to cut three Petal Pink butterflies and a single Terracotta Tile butterfly.  I adhered the detailed Petal Pink die cuts to two of the DSP butterflies and the Terracotta Tile detailed cut with Liquid Glue.

Then I adhered the butterflies to the card front with Liquid Glue – and tucked a Stampin’ Dimensional under them as needed to support them!

Finally, I added a few Champagne Rhinestone Jewels and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped an Art Gallery sentiment in Terracotta Tile on a Basic White panel.  In the corner, I stamped the big flower (this is a three-step-image!) – the large image is Petal Pink then the second and third step images are stamped-off-once Terracotta Tile! 🙂

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

My Basic White Medium Envelope got more of the pretty Art Gallery flower on the front…

….and more of the Fine Art Floral DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Yes – yes, I CAN figure out how to put a butterfly from the Butterfly Bouquet bundle on almost any card!  🙂  And they look awesome with the gorgeous and stunning Fine Art Floral DSP with some sentiments and images from the Art Gallery Bundle, don’t you think!?

Et Voila!  I hope you like!

Totally sacked out.

The Retiring List will be coming out in March! While we don’t know EVERYTHING that will be on it…we DO know that our 2019-2021 In Colors will for sure be leaving us!

NOW is the time to stock up on Ink, Refills, Cardstock and DSP – they’ll sell out QUICK once the list goes live!

Here’s the whole shootin’ match – so…be sure to get yours before they fly off the shelves!

Get busy and don’t let your favorite colors pass you by!!

Finn Fan Fix 

Finn and I are pretty typical dressers.  I’m about to be a little stereotypical and maybe a little sexist, so…don’t be offended. 😉

Me (the dudette) dressing to go out in the morning to feed.  5 minutes.  Sweater – are you ready yet? – covers – now? – shemagh – cap – hoody – readyreadyready?? – gloves – shoes.  Lots of sighing and grumbling cuz it’s cold.

Finn (the dude) dressing to go out in the morning to feed.  5 seconds.  Collar.  Done.

Mom!  Let’s GO!!!

Coming back in is sort of opposite.  I hustle pretty good on winter mornings – working to get back to the heated house quick as I can.

Finn?

Nope – not so much,

I’m good, Mom.  I’ll let you know when I’m ready for some breakfast!  Just enjoying the sub-freezing temperatures! 😉

Finn Fan Fix 

When I was pulling hay last night, I looked up to see…

I asked him what he was doing.

No – he didn’t answer me.

Hello?  He’s a dog, y’all! 😉

So I did some figuring out.

That is a perfect perch for him to keep an eye on me – in the horse side of the barn – AND keep his eye out for his Dad.

Wayne had gone in the shop.  There’s a door on the end of the barn that he COULD go out.  And if he snuck out he MIGHT get the golf cart and go somewhere!

Pretty smart of Finn, really.

I mean – if that’s it.

Could have just been where he got tired and decided to sit down and wait.

😉

Stampin’ Up! Sweet Ice Cream Thank You With Sprinkles!

Happy Holiday Monday, y’all!  If you’re working today – I hope it’s in your pajamas!  If you did have to do yourself up – I hope it was only from the WAIST up – and that you’re rocking pajama bottoms! 🙂

I have a sweet thank you card for you today – that will make you long for summer!  Or…eating ice cream in the dead of winter.  Whatever works for you!  My theory is – as long as the heat’s working in the house – ice cream is on the table!  And this triple scoop cone – from the Sweet Ice Cream Bundle and Ice Cream Corner DSP – is sure to give you a hankering. 🙂 Take a look-see:

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

And I played along at the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge, too!

I started with some sprinkle-strewn paper from the Ice Cream Corner DSP that I matted on Cinnamon Cider for the card front.

Next up, I used the next-to-largest rectangle in the Stitched So Sweetly die set to cut some cone-designed paper from the Ice Cream Corner DSP – that I adhered to the card front with Liquid Glue.

The next layer is Basic White – cut with the largest of the rectangles in the Stitched So Sweetly set.  Man – I LOVE this die set! 😉

On the side, at a jaunty angle, I stamped the sentiment from Sweet Ice Cream in Cinnamon Cider.  Then I adhered the panel to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I used the Ice Cream Cone Builder Punch to make my ice cream cone – and more of the Ice Cream Corner DSP.  First, I punched the cone itself from the cone-design paper – and adhered it to the white panel with Liquid Glue.

I punched three scoops using the punch from a few different pieces of the DSP – see all those splotchy looking shapes? – they’re perfect for making ice cream!

I adhered the bottom scoop with Liquid Glue and the next two with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Before I added the top Purple Posy scoop (Lavender Honey ice cream – I’m pretty sure!) – I stamped the sprinkles image from Sweet Ice Cream in stamped-off-once Highland Heather ink.

I added a couple three Purple Posy dots from the Playing With Patterns Resin Dots – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped a second Sweet Ice Cream sentiment in Cinnamon Cider on a piece of Basic White.  In the corner – I stamped the cone – and the cone-detail! – in Cinnamon Cider.  Bermuda Bay is the scoop color this time – with Bermuda Bay sprinkles!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Cinnamon Cider mat and into my Bermuda Bay card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Basic White Medium Envelope got another Bermuda Bay ice cream cone on the front…

…and more of the Ice Cream Corner DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Are you hungry for some ice cream??  Not gonna lie – I could eat a cone myself!  This Sweet Ice Cream Bundle – with the Ice Cream Cone Builder Punch – works so perfectly with the Ice Cream Corner DSP to create some yummy frozen treats!

I hope you like! 🙂

If you’d like to recreate these cards, all the products and card cuts are listed below!

Finn Fan Fix 

We ran out of Skinny Pop.

Which is hard cuz we buy it by the gross.

Literally.

Okay – maybe not LITERALLY.  BUT – if it goes on sale at Sam’s or Costco – and there’s a limit of….10….then…guess how many we walk out the door with?? 😉

So.  I saw Skinny Pop microwave version at the grocery store and figured it would be a suitable sub.

Sidebar: it’s not.

The other night, I had a bag and when I finished I set it on the sofa next to me.

The man oh-so-casually hopped up to settle in at the other end of the sofa.

This is a hard one, Mom.

Anyone want to speculate on what happened next? 😉

Stampin’ Up! Vine Design Congratulations with Video Tutorial

Happy Sunday, y’all!  This is a three-day, right?  I realized that yesterday when I saw a commercial for a sale for the three-day weekend.  When you’re retired – Monday is Monday is Monday!!  But – if you’re NOT retired, then I hope that you get tomorrow off!  And get to do something fun like…NOT get up and go to work!

If you were able to join me for my Facebook live yesterday, I appreciate you spending part of your long-weekend with me!  If not, here’s the replay!

The card I did is what is – for me! – a clean card – albeit a layered one!  You know that’s not my wheelhouse but I tried to do something a little different!  Didn’t even add a rhinestone.  Or the tiniest piece of ribbon!  I used the new Vine Design bundle, a couple of awesome die sets and…well – ink and cardstock!  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from this week’s Global Design Project sketch.

And the colors are from the Color Throwdown challenge.

I started with a piece of Basic White that I matted on Granny Apple Green and again on Pacific Point cardstock to create the card front.

Next, I cut a piece of Basic White with a Stitched Rectangle Die, then I ran it back thru the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine with a Stitched With Whimsy die right in the middle!  That made for a really interesting stitched design!

I popped the die cut panel onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Using the rectangular die in the Flowering Vine die set (bundled with the Vine Design stamp set), I cut another piece of Basic White – then used Liquid Glue to adhere it to the popped up panel.

I stamped the Vine Design frame image in Granny Apple Green on Basic White.  In the middle, I stamped the sentiment in Melon Mambo.  Then I cut it with the matching die in the Flowering Vine set.  I popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals and….the card front was done!

Now – to be fair – I was on a ZOOM the Craftroom with some folks – and they helped me to step away from the card.  Leave well enough alone.  Put.  The.  Rhinestones.  DOWN!

It was hard!

On the inside, I stamped the vine image from Vine Design in Granny Apple Green on a Basic White panel. I added some sweet little flowers in Melon Mambo to finish it off!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Granny Apple Green and Pacific Point mat and then into my Thick Basic White card base and the card was done!

My Basic White Medium Envelope got the Vine Design vines and flowers on the front…

…and some Pacific Point paper from the Brights 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap.  Hint:  this design is in the NEW DSP packs – that will come out in the summer in the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog (AND that you can get for FREE when you join Stampin’ Up! during Sale-A-Bration!).

Et Voila!  I really like this Vine Design bundle – it’s always cool when you get sentiments AND a frame that work together – especially when there is ALSO a die to cut it out easy peasy!  Add in the gorgeous detailed dies – in THREE shapes! – and you’re talking a winning combination!

I hope you like!

If you’d like to recreate these cards, all the products and card cuts are listed below!

Finn Fan Fix 

Our little terrorist – Katie – had to go to her doctor on Friday.  She was having trouble in the litter box, if you catch my drift.

She hates – hateshateshates – riding in the car.  If the final destination was a wide open field planted panther-ear deep in catnip, populated by 2-legged mice that even old panthers could catch – with fresh salmon to nibble on whenever she wanted it – she would STILL hatehatehate riding in the car.

Turns out she’s got a bacterial infection – so…a couple of injections and some…wipes.

Huh?  Wipes?  And you’d like me to wipe her….there?  Oh – only once a day.  Well – then THAT’S easy enough.

She looks like she’s REALLY going to be receptive to the wipes.

Not.

Finn?  He be like…wipemewipemewipeme!!

Stampin’ Up! Dandy Dragonfly Garden Fun Fold With Video Tutorial

Good morning and happy Friday!  Hoping that your week went well – and that you’re ready for a weekend.  You’ll be fascinated to hear that – in celebration of National Pizza WEEK (yes, that’s a thing – but it ends Saturday so….get to eating!) – we ate sourdough crust pizza last night! And it were yummy!

I’ve got a fun fun-fold for you today and, if you were able to join me for my YouTube live yesterday, I appreciate you spending part of your day with me!  If not, here’s the replay!

I pulled out the Dragonfly Garden Bundle – with the fun Dragonflies Punch – and some Dandy Garden DSP and pulled it all together to create a z-fold card (of sorts).  Take a look-see:

The color palette for this one is from this week’s Paper Players Challenge!

I started with a 5 1/4″ x 11″ piece of cardstock – Blackberry Bliss for the sample card (I used Calypso Coral in the video) – and scored and folded it at 1 3/4″, 5 1/2″ and 9 3/4″ along the long side.

I matted Dandy Garden DSP on Bumble Bee cardstock – using Misty Moonlight paper for two panels and Bumble Bee paper for the center panel.

I adhered all the matted panels to the card base with Liquid Glue.

For the belly band, I gently folded a 1″ x 11″ piece of Blackberry Bliss cardstock (or Calypso Coral) around the folded-up card and adhered the ends together with Liquid Glue on the front of the card.

The sentiment started with a piece of Basic White cardstock that I cut with the third smallest Stitched Rectangle Die.  I ran it again thru the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine, this time with one of the new Stitched With Whimsy dies in the middle.

I stamped the middle of the sentiment label with the Dragonfly Garden sentiment in Misty Moonlight (Mossy Meadow in the video) and then stamped the wunnermus wildflower image three times over the top in Bumble Bee.  Then I adhered it to the middle of the belly band with Liquid Glue.

I punched a dragonfly from the Dandy Garden DSP (Blackberry Bliss or Calypso Coral) using the Dragonflies Punch.  I gently curled the wings and adhered it with Liquid Glue.  Then I used the punch to punch Blackberry Bliss (or Calypso Coral) small dragonflies and adhered them as well.  Those got a swipe with my Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush.

For the inside, I stamped the Dragonfly Garden wildflowers image twice in Bumble Bee on the bottom of a Basic White panel.  Then I added the little “swarm” image in Blackberry Bliss (Calypso Coral in the video).

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Bumble Bee mat and into the card base and the card was done!

My Basic White Medium Envelope got the Dragonfly Garden wildflowers and “swarm” on the front…

…and more Dandy Garden DSP on the envelope flap!

Et Voila!  Love love love the Dandy Garden Suite, don’t you?  From the Dragonfly Garden stamp set with it’s perfectly fun Dragonflies Punch

…to the gorgeous Dandy Garden DSP

….it’s a winner!  I hope you like!

If you’d like to recreate these cards, all the products and card cuts are listed below!

Finn Fan Fix 

In the evenings, when the horses come in, we tell Finn to “go to your spot”.

His spot is a dog bed.  Wherever the dog bed is – so…it moves around some.

But – it’s still his spot and he goes there to watch over the pony parade as they come in!

He’ll usually lay down – with blinky blinking around his neck! – for at least the start of the event.

But…as they get closer – sometimes he has to sit up – just to be sure they see him.

Just double checking that I’m there and won’t let one of the mean girls get him! 😉

To be clear – they aren’t ACTUALLY mean and I won’t let them get him!
