Stamps-N-Lingers Snowflake Splendor Sneak Peek for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hey y’all – it’s Thursday, so it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!!  Today’s a color challenge – and I’m excited to see what everyone brings to the table!  I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop today!

When I saw the colors this week, I first thought…”ocean”.  So I headed to the Whale Done bundle and Whale of a Time DSP.  But THEN….I thought…SNOW!  So, I totally pivoted and went for the new Snowflake Splendor Suite goodies in the Aug – Dec 2020 Mini Catalog (available to customers on 4 Aug!).  Take a look-see:

 

And here’s our oceany/snowflakey color challenge this week (I picked Balmy Blue for my fourth color)!

I used the sketch side of the current FUSION challenge for the layout.

I started with a piece of Pool Party paper from the Snowflake Splendor DSP and I embossed it in the Winter Snow Embossing Folder (coming on 4 Aug), then I matted it on Pacific Point for the card front.

Next, using the smallest square Stitched Shapes Dies, I cut 12 squares from a different paper in the Snowflake Splendor DSP.  Using Liquid Glue, I adhered them in a grid on the card front.

Using Stampin’ Seal, I adhered a few loops of new Snowflake Splendor 1/4″ Ribbon (also coming on 4 Aug).

With the So Many Snowflakes dies – the MOST wunnermus die set bundled with the Snowflake Wishes stamp set in the suite – I cut some Whisper White snowflakes and some Balmy Blue Glimmer Paper (loooooove this!!!).  I adhered them here, there and everywhere on the card front with Liquid Glue.

On a strip of Whisper White, in Just Jade ink, I stamped the Snowflake Wishes sentiment.  I snipped banner-ends with my Paper Snips and popped the banner onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added some Blue Adhesive-Backed Gems (part of the suite and available on 4 Aug) and some Pool Party gems from the Holiday Rhinestones (available right now in the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog).  And that was it for the card front!

On the inside, I stamped a second sentiment from Snowflake Wishes in Just Jade on a Whisper White panel.  I added some stamped snowflakes in Pool Party and Balmy Blue, and adhered a die cut Balmy Blue Glimmer Paper snowflake.  I added some Blue Adhesive-Backed Gems and Holiday Rhinestones, just cuz I could!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Pacific Point mat and into my Just Jade card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Snowflake Wishes snowflakes on the front…

…and a little more Snowflake Splendor DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Y’all – we’ve had a lot of snowflake bundles – with stamp sets and snowflake dies – but this Snowflake Wishes with the wonderful So Many Snowflakes Dies is simply stunning!!

And the Snowflake Splendor DSP and Balmy Blue Glimmer Paper are gorgeous, right?

And – although it’s not just POPPING out at you on this card, you’re going to want the Winter Snow Embossing Folder (I promise!).

I hope you like – and are adding the truly splendiforous Snowflake Splendor suite to your must-have list!! 😉

Stampin’ Up! Queen Anne’s Lace for the Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Good morning, 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 Summer!  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!

Summer and flowers really go together for me!  Well – actually, summer and chile peppers and tomatoes, but…flowers are so much prettier on a card, am I right?!  So…I used a new-to-me set called Queen Anne’s Lace – and I put it atop some bright and summery Artistry Blooms DSP!  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Gilded Beautiful Autumn Sneak Peek

Good Monday morning, my stamping friends!  Hope your weekend was good.  We worked in the garden, worked around the house, got catalog envelopes labeled and ready to roll when the catalogs arrive this week….generally stayed hunkered down around here.  Watching the news make us think we need to throttle back to our stay-home mode from a couple of weeks ago…. which is good for our to-do list, for sure! 🙂

Yesterday, I gave in to my burning desire to play with the stunning new Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP and the coordinating Beautiful Autumn bundle.  These are all in the Aug – Dec 2020 Mini Catalog which demonstrators are able to order from right now – and customers can get their hands on on 4 Aug!  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Pattern Play-ful Alphabet 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 Joanne’s Clean-And-Simple challenge 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 yesterday for my Facebook Live video, I appreciate you spending some of your weekend with me!  If you weren’t able to watch the live version, but you’d like to see the replay on YouTube…here ’tis!

This week, I SAW and acknowledged the “clean-and-simple” part of the challenge – and decided this was a great chance to use a new bundle – the Pattern Play stamp set with the awesome Playful Alphabet dies.  I added a little In Good Taste DSP to the mix and…well…take a look-see:

Okay – if this isn’t clean-and-simple, then…I guess I need some learnin’!! 😉

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

 

My layout was inspired by this week’s Tuesday Morning Sketches challenge.

…and the colors worked well with the Sunday Stamps challenge, too!

I started by cutting my letters for the word “thanks”, using the new Playful Alphabet dies.  Y’all – you know how sometimes letter dies are TOOO big?  And sometimes they’re TOOO small and fussy!??  Well – THESE are JUUUUSSST right!  In fact – they’re perfect!

I cut them twice each – once from some wood-design paper in the In Good Taste DSP pack and again in Real Red cardstock.   NOTE: in the video card, I first adhered the Real Red card stock to a piece of the new Foam Adhesive Sheets and then went from there. Y’all – they are COOL!!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the wood letters to the Real Red ones, offsetting them just a smidge to create a shadow.

Then I laid them out on my Whisper White panel to get the location correct.

I inked the solid hearts image from the Pattern Play set in Real Red and stamped it above my dry-fit sentiment.

Then I embossed the panel in the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder.  You want to emboss AFTER you stamp.

Or…you can emboss and THEN stamp – but you’ll want to use your Stamparatus so that you can stamp it a couple of times…

Trust me on this, okay? 😉

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Balmy Blue mat.

Then, using Liquid Glue – I adhered the letters.  Note: the Foam Adhesive Sheets have their own adhesive, so…no Glue needed!

Finally, I wrapped some twine from the Playful Pets Trim Combo Pack around the panel a couple of times – securing it in the back with Glue Dots.  I wrapped a short length around the two wraps and tied a little bow – and the card front was done!

Clean. And. Simple.

Told ya. 😉

On the inside, I inked the diagonal hashmark image in Balmy Blue and added it across the bottom of a Whisper White panel (it’s photoploymer – so easy to line up just right!).  Then I added some Real Red hearts.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Balmy Blue mat and into my Basic Black card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals – and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Balmy Blue hash marks and Real Red hearts across the front…

…and more of the In Good Taste DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Y’all – I LOVE this new Playful Alphabet stamp set!  The dies are perfectly sized to do ANYthing you want – and the set includes numbers and punctuation, too!   Use it alone – or combine it with the sentiments and texture/design images in the bundled Pattern Play stamp set.

I hope you like!

What do you think?  Is THIS the bundle you’ll pick when you join my team during the amazing Pick a Free Bundle Starter Kit Promotion??  Inquiring minds want to know! 🤔

The other day – there came a heckuva a ruckus on the roof.

I actually thought there was a racoon up there.

Or…a rhinocerous.

Finn knew EXACTLY what…and WHERE!…the problem was.

See it?

HE does. 😉

Stampin’ Up! A Simple Hello From Forever Fern!

‘Sup, y’all!??  Hope your week is going well and that you’re staying safe.

And masked.  And socially distanced!  We’re seeing spikes in cases, people – time to hunker back down if you’ve de-hunkered!

Just sayin’!

At our awesome Zoom team meeting this past weekend, three of us prepped and led the group in creating a card with the wonderful new Forever Fern bundle.  I’ll share Amy and Sue’s cards later this week – mine was (uncharacteristically!) simple – letting some Forever Gold Laser-Cut Specialty Paper add just the right amount of bling!  Take a look-see!

See what I mean?

While I stamped and talked the team thru the card – I could see all their pretty faces looking back at me!

It was so cool to be “together” to stamp and craft and laugh!  Yeah ZOOM!!!

This one started with some of the pretty Forever Greenery DSP matted on Soft Sea Foam for the card front.

We embossed a Shaded Spruce panel in the Greenery Embossing Folder, matted it on Soft Sea Foam and adhered it to the card front with Stampin’ Seal.

Then, the pretty floral Forever Gold Laser-Cut Specialty Paper die cut was adhered with Liquid Glue.

On a seperate piece of Soft Sea Foam, I stamped the sentiment from Forever Fern in Shaded Spruce ink.

I stamped a couple of small leaf images in Soft Sea Foam and a few of the splatter image in stamped-off-once Shaded Spruce.  Then I cut the sentiment with the next-to-smallest circle Stitched Shapes Die.

I popped the sentiment onto the gold die cut with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added some of the white Elegant Faceted Gems and the card front was done!

Told you it was quick and easy! 😉

On the inside, I added some larger Forever Fern leaves in Shaded Spruce, smaller leaves in Soft Sea Foam, and some splatters in stamped-off-once Shaded Spruce.  Then I added more Elegant Faceted Gems!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Soft Sea Foam mat and into my Basic Black card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more of the Forever Fern leaves and splatters on the front…

…and a little more Forever Greenery DSP on the envelope flap!

Et Voila!  Wow – I do SO love this Forever Fern bundle with the Forever Flourishing dies that cut out stand-alone leaves as well as stamped leaf images – WHAT A SET!!…

And the two papers in the suite are gorgeous!

Et Voila!  I hope you like and have this set on your list!  I’ll be bringing you a couple more cards using it as the week goes by – if you don’t want it now…you WILL! 🙂

If you want to recreate this card – all the Stampin’ Up! products you need are listed down below along with the card cuts!

Finn Fan Fix


Yesterday was Finn’s six-month Wellness check.

At about….8 months!  Between the vet and I, we’d pushed it right a couple of times.

Thank you, COVID.

But – this is the “off” check – just checking general health and well-being (and the dreaded scale!) – no shots or blood work.  And, since he’s a pretty healthy dude – it seemed like the right thing to do!

As always – he was very very happy to go and see his friends at the clinic.  And they really love him there.

And, y’all – he is SO stinkin’ good!  The new protocol is that owners can go into the exam room as long as they’re wearing a mask, but the tech takes the patient to the back for the exam.

Finn went with her with not so much as a backwards glance.

I got this, Mom!

Then he comes back in with this giant grin and wiggler wagging.

And plops down next to me to see what’s going to happen next.

He likes their cool floor, I think!

But – he’s always interested as soon as the little knock at the door comes…

Come on in, Dr. Chris!  We’re ready for you! 🙂

You’ll be glad to know that, except for what appears to be some developing arthritis in his left hand, he’s hale, hearty and healthy!

Stampin’ Up! Many Mates Flowers For Every Season!

Happy Monday, y’all!

Well – once my back decided that it could calm down a bit on Sunday, the weekend went pretty well for me – we had a fun Inkin’ Krew meeting yesterday on Zoom – and we even made some cards “together’!  With our team spread out all over the country, it’s totally cool to be able to see everyone and laugh and craft together!!  We have an awesome team – and more folks joining us all the time – especially with the amazing joining special we’ve got going right now!

My card today is not one of the ones we worked on in our meeting – but you’ll get to see those in the next few days.  Today, I have a quick and super easy card for you to make with the beautiful Flowers For Every Season Memories & More card pack and…yes, again!…the Many Mates stamp set.  Take a look-see:

I borrowed the layout for this one from this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

I started with a piece of Pretty Peacock cardstock that I embossed in the new Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder and matted on Bumble Bee for the card front.

I pulled two of the smaller cards from the Flowers For Every Season Memories & More Card Pack and cut them down a bit.  Then I matted them on Bumble Bee card stock.

I adhered the first to the card front with Liquid Glue.

Using Glue Dots, I adhered a length of Bumble Bee 1/4″ 2020-2022 In Color RIbbon.

On the second panel – the one with the frame – I stamped a sentiment from Many Mates in Pretty Peacock.  Then I popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a Bumble Bee 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dot and the card front was done.

On the inside, I stamped a second Many Mates sentiment in Pretty Peacock on a Whisper White Panel.  Across the bottom of the panel, I adhered a Bumble Bee-matted strip of Flowers For Every Season DSP.

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got one of the flower stickers from the Flowers For Every Season Memories & More Card Pack on the front…

…and more Flowers For Every Season DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I do so love this Flowers For Every Season Memories & More Card Pack – it’s so handy and makes quick and easy cards so…quick and easy.  And beautiful!!

I hope you like!

House guard….POST!

On full alert.

I shall not eat while at my post.

I shall alert my family if there is a deer.  Or a mud dauber.  Or a leaf.

I shall stay ever vigilant.

The first, the last – yes, the very final defense….

I will not sleep…

Well – maybe just rest my chin for a minute….

Stampin’ Up! Grand Pampered Pets 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 Laurie’s Color challenge this week and it’ll for sure jump-start your creative mojo!  I hope you’ll come and play along.  🙂

I’m really sorry I had to pull out of our video last night – I look forward to spending a little time with y’all.  But…my back wasn’t having any part of my desk!  So…wasn’t in the cards.  As it were. 😉  We’ll try again on Thursday!

For the card I WOULD have shared with you last night, I pulled out the cute Pampered Pets bundle and…well – MOST of the entire suite of goodies, really! – to make it!  And added the perfect sentiment from A Grand Kid.  Take a look-see:

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

 

I did have to substitute Pretty Peacock for Tranquil Tide since that’s what I had!

I also played along with the TGIF challenge…

And the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.

I started with a piece of Basic Gray card stock and cut it at 5 1/2″ x 7 1/4″.  Then I scored it and folded it at 3″ – creating the trimmed down front panel.

I embossed a piece of Whisper White in the new Absolutely Argyle 3D Embossing Folder (see – the dog in the Pampered Pets stamp set looks like a Scotty to me.  So…Scotty…Argyle… well, it made sense when I made it!).

I matted the panel on Pretty Peacock.

I wrapped a piece of the Real Red ribbon from the Playful Pets Trim Combo Pack around the panel, securing it in the back with Glue Dots. Then I popped the panel onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I used a heart die from the Stitched Be Mine Die Set and cut one of the pieces of Playful Pets DSP.  I popped the heart onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a piece of Whisper White, using my Stamparatus, I stamped the Pampered Pets dog in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored him with my Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Combo – and the Pretty Peacock Stampin’ Write Marker for his collar.  Then I cut him with the matching die in the bundled Pets Die set.

I stamped a sentiment from the A Grand Kid stamp set in Pretty Peacock on Whisper White and cut it with a Stitched Rectangle die.  I adhered the sentiment to the heart with Liquid Glue – then added the dog die cut with a Dimensional and more Liquid Glue.

I used a Glue Dot to add a heart-shaped Playful Pets Trinket and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped a Pampered Pets sentiment in Pretty Peacock on a Whisper White panel, then I matted it on Pretty Peacock.  I matted a strip of Playful Pets DSP on Pretty Peacock and adhered it with Liquid Glue.

I adhered the panel into the Basic Gray card base and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another Pampered Pets pooch on the front…

…and some more of the Playful Pets DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  A perfect pupper to say happy birthday, courtesy of Pampered Pets and the A Grand Kid stamp sets!

I love that the Pampered Pets images can be cut out lickety-split with the bundled Pets Dies.

I hope you like – and are thinking THIS bundle might be the FREE bundle you pick when you decide to pull the trigger and join the team duing our awesome June joining special! 🙂

If you want to recreate this card – all the Stampin’ Up! products you need are listed down below along with the card cuts!

Gotta tell you – FInn’s not doing much of anything these days.  Lots of sleeping.  It’s what happens in the summer – cuz…he’s a fur-bucket-hot-dog! 🙂

But.  Let the cat get on my lap – especially if there’s also food in the equation – and…all of a sudden…there he is!


What – EXACTLY!? – is going on here??

Move cat.

And if THAT doesn’t work….

He brings out the BIG guns!  The glooowwwwy eyes!!! 😉

Stampin’ Up! Grand Pampered Pets Video Tutorial Sneak Peek

‘Sup, y’all!  It’s the weekend!  Which – I realized yesterday – really doesn’t mean much these days.  Surely not for me.  And yet – on Friday afternoons, I still find myself getting a little thrill of “YES!  It’s the weekend!  Whoo-hooo!”.  Guess all those years where Friday DID mean something take a second to get past!

For today – hope you’ve got something fun planned and – I hope – joining me tonight at 7pm Eastern over on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page – will be a part of that plan!  I’ve got a cute little card for you – with the Pampered Pets bundle!  Take a sneaky Peek!

I think you’ll like it so…. hope you can join me.

The other evening while I was working on a blog post, I had the tv going.  As usual.

Don’t judge – it’s how I roll!

Well – the America’s Funniest Videos was on – which I don’t actually watch.

But – they were doing some animal videos and there was a lot of laughter and I noticed…

SOMEthing had his attention for sure!

I looked at the tv and saw that there was a cat on top of a door in a house…

Sorry – not easy to tell what the black blob is on tv screen – but…FINN knows what it is!!  It’s one a them pesky CATS!!

He was fascinated.

He was pretty…dialed in! 😉

See what I did there?

For you young ‘uns – that was funny cuz tv’s used to have dials.  That you had to turn with your HANDS! With 13 numbers on them.  But…only 3 or 4 did anything.

Get it now? “DIALED” in?!?  😉

Stampin’ Up! Prized Peony Bouquet Thank You with a Video Tutorial!

Good morning and Happy Friday! 🙂  Hope you’ve got a fun weekend planned!

I’m hoping to have some friends come this afternoon to do a little card making.  We’ll wear our masks and stay as socially distanced as possible. But – she’s retiring from the airline soon and is thinking maybe card-ing would be fun now that she’ll have some time.  And – she’s intrigued (rightly enough!) by the current joining special.  She likes the sound of “FREE” as much as the next person – and a bundle of free?  Yes, please! 🙂

Now – one of the awesomer new bundles in the catalog and…one she – or you! – could pick for free – is the Prized Peony Bundle.  The Prized Peony stamp set is gorgeous, for sure.  But – the real prize (see what I did there?) is the bundled Peony Dies.  Which lets you cut out all the gorgeous flower images in the stamp set AND lets you build stunning 3D peonies. Like I created today.  Take a look-see:

So – if you were able to join me yesterday for my YouTube live, I appreciate you spending some time with me – and you got to see exactly how to build these peonies.  If not – take a gander at it here on YouTube.  Moving pictures are worth a gazillion words! 😉

The layout for this one was loosely inspired by this week’s challenge over at Tuesday Morning Sketches.

I started with a piece of In Good Taste DSP wood-grain paper that I matted on Just Jade for the card front using new Stampin’ Seal.

I created some leaves using the dies in the Peony Dies – each leaf uses two different dies.  I created them from Just Jade 2020-2022 In Color 6″ x 6″ DSP and from Mint Macaron card stock.  The larger solid leaves in Mint Macaron, I embossed in the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder.

Then I adhered the leaf parts together with Liquid Glue.

I cut three flowers – they each take 4 parts….

One I cut from Whisper White card stock, one from Mango Melody Brights 6″ x 6″ DSP and one from So Saffron Subtles 6″ x 6″ DSP.  Using an almost-dry Sponge Dauber, I lightly brushed the edges of all the flower pieces.

I ran the four Whisper White petals thru the cutting and embossing machine in the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder.

Then I used my Bone Folder to curl all the petals into a most-realistic looking shape. 😉

Finally – I assembled all the flowers.  Just remember – the smallest petal into the next largest into the next largest and finally into the biggest petal.  Align the “notch” at the bottom and adhere with Liquid Glue.

Confused?  Truly – it’s easy.  Watch the video and I’ll prove it to you! 🙂

I stamped the Prized Peony sentiment in Early Espresso on a piece of Whisper White, then used the smallest rectangle die cut in the Stitched So Sweetly die set to cut the sentiment.  That die is the right width – but is too short.  So…I made the cut longer by running thru the machine twice.  Check the video – this part starts at about 34:45 into the video.  LOTS easier to show than to write! 🙂

I laid out my collage and took a picture – first of the whole thing and then with the top flower off…

Then I started adhering all the pieces and parts with Liquid Glue and Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I used a couple of Glue Dots to adhere a Linen Thread “Figure 8” before adding the final Mango Melody flower.

A few of the new Elegant Faceted Gems – the pink ones – finished off the card front!

On the inside, I inked the Peony image (the middle sized one) from Prized Peony in Magenta Madness.  Then I stamped it off twice before stamping a Whisper White panel.  I repeated that three more times.  Then I colored them with my Light So Saffron and Light Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends.  I also added a second sentiment in Early Espresso.

I used Stampin’ Seal to adhere the panel to a Just Jade mat and into my Early Espresso card base, added the card front with Liquid Glue – and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another Prized Peony on the front…

…and more of the In Good Taste DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila – does this Peony Die set not make the more stunningly gorgeous flowers??  I can’t believe how real you can make them look – just by stacking four die cuts together!  And the beautiful images and sentiments in the bundled Prized Peony round this out to be the perfect bundle!

I hope you like – and have this one coming soon!  Or…that it’s on the short list for your free pick when you join my team! 😉

Finn Fan Fix


Yesterday, Wayne got back from being in NC for a few days working on our rental property.

Which meant it was – finally!! – time to turn these…

…into this…

No – NOT the yellow squash – it’s destined for different things!

Served up with some corn bread?  Oh yes – that’s some good eating!

Well – the Finn-meister was NOT convinced that what I was working on was VEGETABLES!!!

“I LOVE beans, Mom. ESPECIALLY French Algarve beans that I grew myself!”

He doesn’t.  I promise.

Now – the ham in the beans??  Likely a far different story! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! A Beautiful World Thanks for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hey y’all – it’s Thursday, so it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!!  Today’s a sketch challenge – and I’m excited to see what everyone brings to the table!  I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop today!

I am SO loving the Beautiful World stamp set and the accompanying World of Good Specialty DSP – and I used them again today.  Along with – cuz I can’t seem to help myself – my go-to for all things-thanks…the aptly named Massive Thanks.  Take a look-see:

And here’s our sketch challenge.

I pulled the color scheme from the TGIF Challenge this week.

I started with some World of Good Specialty DSP and matted it on Night of Navy for the card front.

I took a second – Bumble Bee – piece and matted it on Night of Navy, too – then adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I put a piece of Whisper White card stock into my Stamparatus and used it to stamp the Beautiful World sentiment in Night of Navy ink.  Over that, in stamped-off-once Crumb Cake, I added the world globe image.

I cut the sentiment with a circle Stitched Shapes die.

I used my Layering Circles dies to cut two scalloped-edged circles – the larger from Night of Navy and a smaller one from Brass Foil.  I adhered the foil circle to the Night of Navy circle with Liquid Glue.

I popped the sentiment onto the matted circles with Black Stampin’ Dimensionals and then used Liquid Glue to adhere it all to the card front.

I used Glue Dots to adhere an Antique Corner to each corner of the middle panel – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I used my Stamparatus to add a sentiment from Massive Thanks in Night of Navy to a Whisper White panel.  Over top is another stamped-off-once Crumb Cake globe image.

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got a Beautiful World globe image in full-strength Crumb Cake on the front…

…and more of the World of Good Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  The Beautiful World set is perfect for masculine cards – but…don’t let it get “stuck” in that compartment, okay?  It’s just a wonderful bundle for all your projects….

…and – this bundle could be yours for FREE – PLUS another $125 worth of the Stampin’ Up! goodies of your choice and free shipping – for just $99 when you take advantage of our awesome joining special right now!!

I hope you like!
