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! Easter Promise on Pressed Petals with a Video Tutorial!

Good Friday morning, y’all!  It’s day 498 of Social Distancing.

Not really – just sort of feels like it is, doesn’t it??   It’s really starting to get real – another 30 days??  AND – Georgia just followed other states by issuing a Stay Home Order starting today.  Good idea – it’s NECESSARY.  But…I feel pretty confident that NO ONE will believe me when I whine that having my house cleaned (and not by me!)….IS essential!

And now you know.  I AM a first-world-sissy-baby.

C’mon, Mare – you’ve got a house, and food, and electricity.  The dog and cat and horses have food.  Wayne can fix or cobble together anything we need.  ZEWS 1 is on the job.  We’re healthy – and getting to the two-weeks-since-we’ve-been-anywhere-so-surely-that-means-we’re-completely-healthy point.  So…waaaaa.

Sorry.  I’m over it now.

Since along with a house and power comes internet (Thank goodness!) I was able to go live yesterday on my YouTube channel.  If you were able to join me – I appreciate you spending some of your day with me!  If not, but you’d like to see the replay on YouTube…here ’tis!

The card we made is a pretty – and pretty easy!! – Easter card, using the Easter Promise stamp set from the Jan – Jun Mini Catalog, a sweet Ornate Layers Die cut and some Pressed Petals Specialty DSP (2019-2020 Annual Catalog).  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one came from the Mojo Monday challenge…I THINK you can see which sketch I used! 😉

 

And the Easter theme fits right into the Inspire. Create.  Challenge!

I started with some of the pretty sheet music paper from the Pressed Petals Specialty DSP and matted it on So Saffron for the card front.

Next, with the long, narrow die from the new Ornate Layers Die Set, I cut a Purple Posy rectangle.  I ran it thru the die cutting machine in the Scripty 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

Then, I matted a strip of wood-grain Pressed Petals Specialty DSP on So Saffron and adhered it over top with Liquid Glue.

I cut a Very Vanilla rectangle with the next-to-largest Stitched So Sweetly die and stamped the big Easter Promise sentiment in Mossy Meadow.

Next to it – also in Mossy Meadow – I added the floral spray.

I colored the flowers with my Purple Posy Stampin’ Blends Combo and the stems with my Light Mossy Meadow Blend.

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

I used a Glue Dot to adhere a Linen Thread double-loop bow, which I topped with a purple Frosted Flower Embellishment and a Champagne Rhinestone.  And that was it for the card front.

Speaking of Glue Dots, though…

Other side of the room by my photo box.  No.  Clue.  Why.  🤷‍♀️

Anywho….

For the inside, I stamped a second sentiment from Easter Promise in Mossy Meadow on a Very Vanilla panel.  I added the flowers, in Mossy Meadow, again in the corner, coloring them as I’d done on the front.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a So Saffron mat and into my Purple Posy card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got more Easter Promises flowers on the front…

…and more Pressed Petals Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Spring and Easter all rolled up in one!  Don’t let the Easter Promise stamp set – with it’s elegant flowers and simple sentiments – pass you by!  Easter is coming soon – and cards with messages of the hope of Easter are going to be especially welcome this year, I’m thinking!

I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Ornate Garden Early Release Suite Now Available!

Happy Happy HAWWWMP Day!  And – Happy “Go-Live” Day to the new Ornate Garden Suite!!  Whoo-hoo!

I’ve been showing you lots of samples of this cool new suite – you know it’s an Early Release from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog, right?  And it’s awesome!

I’ve got another card for you today, using the Ornate Style and Ornate Thanks stamp sets, a little of the Ornate Garden Specialty DSP and the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder.  Take a look-see:

This fun layout is inspired by this week’s CAS(E) This Sketch challenge.

And the color palette is from the Fab Friday color challenge.

I started with a panel of Whisper White.  I ran just the right side – about 1 1/2″ – thru the die cutting machine in the new Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder.

Then I used my Paper Trimmer to cut a triangle of the gold-foil embossed Ornate Garden Specialty DSP – it’s about 1 1/2″ across at the top and 5 1/8″ long – cut on a diagonal to create a point.

I used my Daffodil Delight and Mango Melody Stampin’ Blend Combo Packs and the Light Pumpkin Pie Blend to color the flowers.  Then I used Liquid Glue to adhere it to the card front.

Then I matted the panel on Mango Melody.

Using Glue Dots on the back of the card front, I adhered two lengths of Terracotta Tile ribbon from the Ornate Garden Ribbon Combo Pack.

On a piece of Whisper White, I stamped one sentiment from Ornate Thanks in Terracotta Tile and a second sentiment in Pumpkin Pie.  Then I cut it with a Stitched Rectangle Die.

I popped the sentiment on with Stampin’ Dimensionals, added a small Gilded Gem and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a third sentiment from Ornate Thanks in Pumpkin Pie on a Whisper White panel.  In each corner, I added a flourish in Terracotta Tile.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Mango Melody mat and into my Pumpkin Pie card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Terracotta Tile flourishes on the front…

…and more Blends-colored Ornate Garden Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  SO many ways to put all the pieces, parts, images and sentiments together in this spectacular new Ornate Garden Suite!  From the Ornate Thanks and Ornate Style stamp sets, to the bundled Ornate Layers and Ornate Borders dies…and the gorgeous Ornate Garden Specialty DSP is stunning!  I hope you like and – are rushing to get yours ordered right now!

Here’s a quick video about this cool new Suite! 🙂03.03.20_TH_VIDEOSCREEN1_ORNATE_GARDEN_NA

In these chaotic and troubled times, I’m glad that we have our own ZEWS. Zombie Early Warning System.

Behold.  ZEWS Sentry – Deploy.

ZEWS 1 – in strategic position.

That locale was carefully selected by ZEWS 1 – it offers 180 degrees of overwatch of both the house and the barn.  The road behind him – an obvious ingress point for zombies – he covers with his cat-like hear-stuff-sneaking-up-behind-him senses.

He remains ever-vigilant.

His request for a ghillie-suit was obviously denied and he sort of sticks out.  But…stealth is not his weapon of choice.

Vocalizing the threat is his forte.

And a deep suspicion – which is good for a ZEWS Sentry.  Cuz Zombies are…everywhere.  And well disguised.

Maybe…

Definite possibility.

Is there any doubt??


Vigilance is key.  ZEWS 1 must remain alert at all times.  It’s in the code.

Wargaming is important, though.  Critical to think thru the steps if the hoard should lumber over the hill.  You KNOW they’d come from the back.

Zombies are pretty smart.

Not everyone knows that.

Wargaming COULD be misconstrued for napping on duty.

It’s not.

Napping.

He’s deep in strategery-izing….

Every evening – EVERY evening! – when we’re done with dinner (or while I’m still eating – he’s not picky!), Finn brings one toy or the other to Wayne – or me – and then Wayne – then me – then…you get the drift.

He’s an equal opportunity parent-toy-player!

Fortunately, his Dad helps to distract him so I can finish dinner.

And…take pictures of them playing!

He plays for a little bit and then…under the chair he goes for a little pre-sleeping.

Every.  Night.

Consistency.  It’s nice, isn’t it?

Stampin’ Up! Witty-Cisms Thoughtful Blooms with 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 Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge from Joanne 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!

I pulled out some more of the pretty Ornate Garden Specialty DSP – coming soon on 1 April (and available in a limited-time special bundle from me!) and then added a little Witty-Cisms and….Thoughtful Blooms flowers, punched with the Small Bloom Punch.  These are both free Sale-A-Bration goodies – available thru 31 Mar.  Take a look-see:

And here’s this week’s Paper Players Tic-Tac-Toe challenge!  These are my very favorite challenges!! Go across – down – diagonal….join the fun and show us your projects!  I can’t wait to see what you create!  🙂

And I used the sketch from the Freshly Made Sketches challenge for the layout – I just flipped it a bit!

I started with some flower-dy paper (oh – I went down the far right column on the challenge!) for my card front.

On a piece of Whisper White, I stamped the sweet little chinchilla from Witty-Cisms.  I used the Stamparatus and the Marker-to-Rubber technique to stamp JUST the chinchilla in Early Espresso.  I colored him with my Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends Combo Pack, then cut him out with the next-to-largest circle Stitched Shapes die.

I went back to the Stamparatus and used the Marker-To-Rubber technique again to color and stamp the sentiment in Mossy Meadow and Terracotta Tile.  Then I fussy cut each word and edged the resulting pieces with my Petal Pink Stampin’ Write Marker.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the die cut chinchilla to the Ornate Garden panel with a little hanging over the left edge – then I trimmed the excess with my Paper Trimmer.

Then I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Petal Pink mat.

I popped each fussy cut word on with a Stampin’ Dimensional.

I used Old Olive to stamp some Thoughtful Blooms branches and leaves above the chinchilla.  Using the Leaf Punch, I cut a couple of Mint Macaron leaves and one in Old Olive.  These I attached to the card front with Liquid Glue.

To make the Thoughtful Blooms flowers, I used Terracotta Tile and Petal Pink to stamp a variety on Whisper White.  The outline images are Terracotta Tile and the fills are Petal Pink!  Then I punched them all with the Small Bloom Punch.

Note: both these items are available right now as FREE Sale-A-Bration goodies – the Thoughtful Blooms stamp set with a $50 purchase and the Small Bloom Punch with a $100 purchase!


I adhered two of the flowers with Liquid Glue and then popped the middle flower up with a Dimensional.  A Champagne Rhinestone in the middle of each flower and two on the art circle finished off the card front!

On the inside, I stamped Happy Birthday (from the Witty-cisms stamp set) in Mossy Meadow on a Whisper White panel.  Around it, I stamped some dots from Thoughtful Blooms in Petal Pink.  In the corner, I added more flowers, branches and leaves from Thoughtful Blooms in Old Olive, Pear Pizzazz, Terracotta Tile and Petal Pink.

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 Thoughtful Blooms florals on the front…

…and a little more Ornate Garden Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Gotta love the punny little sentiments and cute images in the Witty-cisms stamp set (and the Stamparatus makes multiple-color-coloring easy peasy!!).  And I have to say that the Thoughtful Blooms stamp set AND that awesome Small Bloom Punch – are two of my very favorite things from the Sale-A-Bration offerings!  I assume you’ve got them both already – but if not…hurry and get them before Sale-A-Bration leaves us on 31 March!!  I hope you like!

I’d like to say we’re done mixing dirt.

I know we’re out of Vermiculite so…we’re done for a minute! 😉

Fortunately, Finn was supervising.

Welll…for a bit.

I mean – it was HOT for a fur-dog!

He tried to get on the golf cart to rest, but his mom had left her drink right in the WAY.

Not very comfortable….

Oopsie… what bottle?!?

Ahhh – THAT’s better!!

Silly mom.

Finn Fan Fix


There’s a legend known only to ponies – of a pasture filled end to end and side to side with the greenest grass known to pony-kind.

They know it exists – they can see it every day – but…alas and alack, there is fence all around.

They call it…The Promised Land.

Every day they gaze longingly and chuckle piteously to the evil humans who rule The Promised Land.

They see deer – VERMIN! – eating the luscious goodness.

And they despair of ever reaching their dream.

Until, one day, one of the humans takes pity on the obviously-starving ponies.

And the gates to The Promised Land swung open…

You want us to…come in?!?

Uhm….

Stampin’ Up! Forever Parisian Blossoms Fun Fold with a Video Tutorial!

Good Friday morning, y’all!  Hope your week has been good and that Spring is springing up where you are like it is here!  We had a little rain at the beginning of the week – but…yesterday was gorgeous and the weekend is looking to be the same!  🙂

Which means it’s perfectly perfect for staying home and working around the house, craft room and yard.  And…just leave the TV off, why don’t you?  Or…watch fun things.  Not the news.  They’re busy terrifying us – I’m pretty sure I’ve had the C-19 five or twelve times in the last week! In all my 29 years, I’ve never taken my temperature during pollen season.  But…I did this week!  So…turn it off!

If you were able to join me for my YouTube Live Video yesterday –  I appreciate you spending some of your day with me!  If not, but you’d like to see the replay on YouTube…here ’tis!

I used the gorgeous Forever Blossoms stamp set and bundled Cherry Blossoms Dies, plus paper from the Parisian Blossoms Specialty DSP to make this super-easy fun fold.  Take a look-see:

The color scheme for this one is from the Global Design Project’s color challenge this week!

I saw Cindy Brumbaugh’s take on this fun-fold using the Best Dressed suite and decided I needed to give it a go!

I started with a piece of So Saffron card stock cut at 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″.  I scored it at the 4 1/4″ mark, then, using my Paper Trimmer, I cut one side into a point.

Using a straight-edge die from the Ovals Layering Dies, I cut a 3 1/4″ oval in the pointed side of the card base.

For the inner portion, I cut a Whisper White panel and stamped the sentiment from Forever Blossoms in Pool Party in the middle.  In the corner, in Basic Gray Ink, I stamped the big and beautiful floral from the set.  Then I colored it with my Petal Pink and Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Combo packs.

I took a piece of 4 1/2″ x 5 1/8″ paper from the Parisian Blossoms Specialty DSP and scored the long edge at 3 7/8″.  Using SNAIL on that small folded section, I adhered the panel behind the inner liner on the right side.  Then I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Petal Pink mat and into the card base.

For the front sentiment, I cut two of the largest oval Stitched Shapes die and, on one of them, stamped the Forever Blossoms sentiment in Pool Party.  Then I adhered it to the second oval with Liquid Glue and then to the card front – using the oval cut-out as a guide.

To decorate the front, I used the Cherry Blossoms Dies to cut a Champagne Foil “stem” and adhered it with Liquid Glue to the left of the oval opening.

I cut a bunch of Petal Pink flowers and Pool Party leaves (these are cutting-and-embossing dies, so…spritz the card stock with water first to make lovely deep emboss lines!).  Then I used Liquid Glue and a couple of Dimensionals to adhere them ever-so-creatively to the branch!

From So Saffron, I cut more of the flowers so that I’d have their little centers – which I adhered in the middle of the Petal Pink flowers (using a little tiny piece of scotch tape on the back!).  I also cut some So Saffron flower centers and adhered them to the larger flowers.

I added a Champagne Rhinestone Jewel to the front sentiment oval and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another of the Forever Blossoms floral images in Basic Gray, Petal Pink and Pool Party on the front…

…and more of the Parisian Blossoms Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I think that large floral in the Forever Blossoms set is one of our very prettiest, don’t you?  And the wonderful flowers, leaves and “pretties’ in the Cherry Blossoms Die set….are wunnermus!  All of which perfectly play off the Parisian Blossoms Specialty DSP!!  I hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix


Finn heard his fans.

He heard your admiration for his “up-ears” look the other day.

So…he’s decided to train.

His ears.

You know – to be “up ears” when he’s obviously a flop-ear dog.

He’s a man of the people and will do whatever is necessary to keep his fans happy.

The training is strenuous, but he’s smart – he does it in intervals.

Lay very still – ears “up” – for an hour or so.

Get up – ears naturally flop – do some “stuff”.

Repeat.  All day long.

Yes – he’s quite dedicated.  Eventually – it WILL work.  He’s certain of it!

I know.  I KNOW – it takes way longer than that.  But – for some reason – I can’t keep from peeeeering thru the chicken wire every morning (okay – and again in the evening) just to be sure!  And I’m unreasonably disappointed every time there’s nuthin’ but dirt.

One day, though.  One.  Day!

Okay.  Do you ever wonder what an Aussie would look like with…up-ears?  Instead of flop-ears?

Here you go.

Who are we kidding?  Up-ears, flop-ears, pointy ears,….he’s stinkin’ cute!

He also thinks I’m weird.

Stampin’ Up! A Special Day for a Special Someone

Good morning again, y’all!  Hope you’re already ordering from the 2020 Coordination Product Release OR looking to save a little money with one of my Special Bundles!  You can scroll down to get all the deets!

My card today is a teaser – to help you realize that you NEED the Special Day Dies – which, as part of the Coordination Product Release – coordinate with the sweet Special Someone stamp set in the 2020 Jan – Jun Mini Catalog.  Take a look-see:

I got inspiration for this one from this week’s FUSION challenge!

I started with a piece of Daffodil Delight paper from the Brights 6″ x 6″ DSP, matted on Granny Apple Green for the card front.

Then I cut a piece of Balmy Blue from the Subtles 6″ x 6″ DSP and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I created two pieces of “grass” with the grass die in the Special Day die set – one from Garden Green and one from Granny Apple Green.  I adhered the Granny Apple Green grass directly with Liquid Glue – and popped the Garden Green piece on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut a piece of Whisper White – and cut a “frame” from it with a Stitched So Sweetly rectangle die.  Using a Journaling pen, I created doodle-dot-dash-doohickeys all around the edge of the frame.

I stamped the sentiment from Special Someone in Granny Apple green on the bottom of the frame.  Then I used Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop it over the card front.

I stamped some critters from Special Someone – the squirrel outline is Early Espresso with stamped-off-once Early Espresso “fill in”; Rackety coon is Early Espresso with Crumb Cake “fill” and the field mouse is Basic Gray with Gray Granite fill.  I cut them all with their dies in the new Special Day Die set.

I also stamped a whole field of large and small flowers in Granny Apple Green and Garden Green.  They’re all “filled” with Daffodil Delight (yes, there’s a stamp for both flowers!).  They’re all cut with dies in the new Special Day set!

I laid everything out and, before sticking it all down – I used Tuxedo Black to carefully stamp butterflies here and there around the “scene”.  I LOVE these tiny little images, don’t you??

Then, using a combination of Liquid Glue and Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals – I placed all the critters and flowers.

I stamped a few more butterflies on the top of the frame – coloring them with the bullet-end of my Light Balmy Blue Stampin’ Blend.  I added small or medium Rhinestone Basic Jewels to all the flower centers.

I tied a double-length bow from some So Saffron Baker’s Twine (Metallic Baker’s Twine and Sequins Pack from Sale-A-Bration) and adhered it over the stems of my bouquet with a Glue Dot.  And that was it for the card front. 🙂

On the inside, I added another TWO sentiments from Special Someone in Granny Apple Green on a Whisper White panel.  Next to it, I added a flower in Garden Green and Daffodil Delight – and adhered a Rhinestone in the center.  I stamped a few Tuxedo Black butterflies – coloring them with the bullet-end of my Light Balmy Blue Stampin’ Blend.

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more flowers and butterflies on the front…I put Rhinestones in the flowers because this card is destined to be inside a package for mailing…

…and I added more Balmy Blue Subtles DSP to the envelope flap.  And…another flower and butterflies, too!  Can you guess why the extra stamping on the back?!?  LOL!

Et Voila!  I LOVE that almost all the images in the stamp set have a matching die PLUS there are extra shapes, too – like the grass and some sweet bows….The images and sentiments are so sweet and cute.  Being able to cut them without FUSSY cutting is just a huge bonus!  I hope you like!

There’s been a murder.

It was a grizzly scene.

It was obviously a crime of passion.

It appears the victim’s stuffing was – literally – picked bit by bit from his tiny body.

With obvious relish.

The victim, identified as Mr. Bear, was missing vital organs – most notably his Squeaker – when first responders arrived on the scene.

There was a single witness – and elderly female who was in shock at the writing of this post.

No suspects have been identified at this time, but authorities are attempting to locate a person of interest.

If you see this POI, please do not approach and call authorities at once.

Stay tuned for breaking news as it become available.
