Stampin’ Up! Just Because I Was Thinking of You!

Mornin’, y’all!  Hope your week is going well!

I’ve got a pretty little note card for you today, that uses a new Host-Exclusive stamp set from the 2019 Occasions catalog, called Just Because.  And you’ll be able to purchase it with Stampin’ Rewards starting on 3 Jan!  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from this week’s FabFriday sketch challenge.

I started with some Festive Farmhouse DSP and embossed it in the Pinewood Planks Dynamic TIEF, then matted it on a piece of Mossy Meadow card stock for the card front.

I used the Leaf Punch to make some Vellum and Copper Foil Leaves, which I adhered to the card front with Liquid Glue.

On a piece of Very Vanilla card stock, I stamped the pretty image/sentiment (all one stamp!) from the Just Because Host-exclusive set (coming on 3 Jan 19) in Early Espresso Ink.

I colored the image with my Old Olive and Cajun Craze Watercolor Pencils.

I adhered the panel to a Mossy Meadow mat with Liquid Glue and popped it over the leaves with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

For the heart, I colored a new Heart Epoxy Droplet (in the Occasions catalog – available 3 Jan) with my Dark Cajun Craze Stampin’ Blend.  The bow is a simple little number made of Linen Thread – which I adhered with a dab of Liquid Glue and the card front was done!

On the inside, I inked just the flower pot portion of the Just Because stamp in Crumb Cake ink, stamped it off THREE times and then stamped it in the middle of a Very Vanilla panel.

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

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got another Just Because flower pot on the front – stamped in Early Espresso and colored with the Watercolor Pencils…

…and I added a little more Festive Farmhouse DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This Just Because Host stamp set is really wonderful, y’all!  Hope you like!

Once it comes available in January, you’ll be able to pick this Host set using Stampin’ Rewards – which you’ll earn when you host a workshop that reaches $150 or if you place an individual order of $150 or more!  If you’ve just added this set to your wish list, let me know.  I’ve got Online Host Clubs getting ready to start in January that will let you get this one for yourself – I’ll be happy to get you on the list!  Get all the information and the list of bennies right here!

Finn Fan Fix

Finn is a wonderful conversationalist.

Seriously.  He understands everything I’m asking of him and responds appropriately.

For example:  “Finn!  What’s that noise?”

As opposed to: “Finn – where’s your dad?”

“Want a cookie!??”

“Need to go outside?”

See what I mean?  Total intra-species communication!

Stampin’ Up! Perennial Birthday Hoppy Together Sneak Peek!

Mornin’, folks!  Hope your weekend is going well!

My trip this week was re-scheduled for January, so I’m not on my way to CA right now.  Do have to take a quick trip up to Kentucky at the end of the week, but that’ll be easy!

I’m still not going to do a video tonight – sorry.  I have the whole week planned out for cards – and…hadn’t planned something video-worthy.  So…I’ll be back next Sunday, as planned!

Today, though, the card I have is SO fun!  It uses one of the cutest, most fun stamp sets coming in Jan.  And it’s going to be FREE!  That’s right – this set, called Hoppy Together – will be FREE with a $50 purchase during Sale-a-Bration!  For this card, I added a sentiment from Perennial Birthday (in the Annual Catalog).  Take a look-see:

Cute, huh?

This fun layout is from this week’s Global Design Project sketch challenge.

And there’s no doubt at all that this little gem is high on my list of favorite new things!  As requested by the Paper Craft Crew Theme Challenge!

I started with a piece of Gingham Gala 6″ x 6″ DSP (coming on 3 Jan) and a same-size piece of Whisper White.  I stacked them up and, using my 1 3/4″ Circle Punch,  cut them on the right edge.  I dry fit them on another Whisper White panel that I’d matted on Shaded Spruce for the card front.

I used the adorable little froggie from Hoppy Together and stamped him in Shaded Spruce on the card front, situating him so he’d be peeking out of the “window” I’d created.

I colored him with my Light and Dark Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends.  The little bee is also from Hoppy Together – I stamped him a few times in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink around the frog.  They’re colored with my Dark Daffodil Delight Blend.  I used a Journaling Pen to add some dots as a “flight path”.

On the Whisper White panel with the 1 3/4″ hole punched in it, I stamped the big sentiment from Perennial Birthday in Shaded Spruce.  I added the butterfly and bees from Hoppy Together in Tuxedo Black.

I colored the bees with the Dark Daffodil Blend and the butterfly with my Light and Dark Mango Melody Blends and the Dark Daffodil Blend.  Then I added more “flight path” dots with the Journaling Pen.

I added the Gingham Gala and the Whisper White panels to the card front at an angle with Liquid Glue.

To make the froggie’s sign, I stamped the sentiment from Hoppy Together in Granny Apple Green on a scrap of Whisper White and fussy cut it.

I cut a little Shaded Spruce “stick” and adhered it with Liquid Glue, then added my sign.  And that was it for the card front!

On the inside, I added the same Hoppy Together froggie in Shaded Spruce on a Whisper White panel, coloring him with my Dark and Light Granny Apple Green Blends – plus my Lemon Lime Twist Stampin’ Write Marker for his belly and Shaded Spruce Marker for his spots.  I made his sign in the same way as the one on the front and this one is a bit of pun – I stamped the little bee and the “hoppy” (in Granny Apple Green).  Get it??

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Shaded Spruce 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 some more crazy Hoppy Together bees across the front…

…and some more Lemon Lime Twist Gingham Gala DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  How could Hoppy Together NOT be one of my favorite new stamp sets?!?  I mean – it’s a-freakin’-dorable AND…uhm…FREE!!  Yes.  FREE with a $50 purchase once Sale-A-Bration starts in January!  I hope you like – and that your wish list just got a little longer!

TTFN

P.S.  I’ve been giving you sneaky peeks at the new papers and embellishments and ribbons in the 2019 Occasions catalog.  Wondering about catalog shares? Yup – I’ll be doing them!  Watch for that post with all the information and your chance to get in next week! 🙂

We’ve been giving Katy tuna fish.

With oil.

And mayonnaise.

Hey – she’s like…16.  ANY calories we can get in her are GOOD calories.

And she likes it.  Especially the mayonnaise!!

And it smells WAY better than canned cat food.

Finn agrees.

It’s a hard thing standing sorta-politely back whilst the cat gets ALL THE GOOD FOOD!

So – sometimes, he gets to have the final lick on the bowl.

He makes the most of it.

Getting.  Every.  Last.  Drop.

Stampin’ Up! 2019 Occasions Catalog Sneak Peek Gingham Butterfly Gala

Good morning!!  Hard to believe it’s already….HAAAWWWWMPPP DAY!!  Whoo-hoo!  And – one week from tomorrow it’s time for your stretchy pants, huh?  Y’all doing turkey?  Ham?  Turkey AND Ham?!?

We’re in the turkey and ham camp.  We’re going to smoke a turkey this year and let Honeybaked do their thing for the ham.  And then we’re going to try to keep the rest of the over-abundance to a minimum.

I don’t hold out much hope! 😉

So – yesterday was a pretty dreary, cold and rainy day here in GA – and I think that drove my decision to use a new stamp set from the 2019 Occasions Catalog!
