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….

Stampin’ Up! Ornate Style Sneak Peek 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 Spring!  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!

Park.  Territorial.  Burpee’s.  Johnny’s.  Those names sound familiar to you?  Well – if they do, then you understand the terrible and wonderful temptation that comes every spring in the mailbox.  SEED CATALOGS!  Filled with page after page of flowers and vegetables and herbs, just waiting for a gardening genius like myself to plant them and bring their bounty to life.  When the catalogs arrive, I am suddenly and acutely struck with a GREEN THUMB fantasy.  In this fantasy – I plant all the beautiful flowers I see in all the seed catalogs.  They’re all in JUST the right place to get the right sun, I’ll weed them every day, water when they require it, deadhead to ensure bountiful flowers….on and on and on.  And – I’ll cut bundles and oodles of beautiful blooms that I will then artfully arrange in one of my many shabby chic farmhouse-perfect flower holders that are stored in my perfect pantry…..

And then?  I realize…I better put my spring flowers on a card.  Cuz…THAT, I really CAN do.  And that’s what I did for you today.  I put some new Ornate Garden Specialty DSP to work with daisies from the new Ornate Style stamp set and a few die cut beauties from the Ornate Layers Die set.  Take a look-see:

Now – this Ornate Garden Suite will be available to y’all on 1 April (no joke!).  Or…you COULD get it right now.  Give me a shout if you’d like to find out how!

This is a fun-fold card, but the layout for the front is inspired by the CAS(E) This Sketch challenge this week.

I started by cutting the Old Olive card base to 5 1/2″ x 7 1/2″  and scoring it at 3 1/4″.   That makes the front of the card just 3 1/4″ wide.

I matted a piece of the Ornate Garden Specialty DSP on Terracotta Tile and adhered it to the small card front with Liquid Glue.

With a die in the new Ornate Layers Die set, I cut a rectangle frame from Terracotta Tile.

Using Liquid Glue on the left side of the die – to about 1″ from the right edge – I adhered the die cut to the card front, letting the edge hang over as you can see in the photo above.  Be sure not to get glue on the exposed part of the die cut – if you do, wipe it with a damp cloth quickly, or wait until it dries and rub it off with a gum eraser! 🙂

On a piece of Whisper White, I stamped a daisy from the Ornate Style stamp set (part of the new Suite coming on 1 April!) in Tuxedo Black.  I started with the flower in the middle.  Then I added the second flower on the right.

I fussy cut two masks of the image from sticky notes and covered the first two flowers before adding the third (the one on the left).

I picked up the masks and colored the leaves with my Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Combo Pack.  For the flowers, I used my So Saffron Combo Pack – only coloring the middle and about half of each petal.  I also used my Light Mango Melody Blend near the middle.  Finally, I used the Color Lifter to blur the edges of the colored parts of the petals. The panel is adhered with Liquid Glue.

For the sentiment, I stamped the large sentiment from Ornate Thanks in Old Olive on a piece of Whisper White.  Using the “I’m” and “for all your help” sentiment images, I added them in Terracotta Tile, tucked right up to the first sentiment.

I used the long rectangle die in the Ornate Layers Die set to cut the sentiment and then popped it on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  And that was it for the card front!

On the inside, I added another Ornate Thanks sentiment in Old Olive on a Whisper White panel.  Over the top, in stamped-off-once Tuxedo Black, I added the daisy image.  I used just the Light So Saffron Blend and a smidge of Light Mango Melody Blend to lightly color just the flower.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Terracotta Tile mat and into the Old Olive card base and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got the daisy in full-strength Tuxedo Black and colored with the Blends on the front…

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

Et Voila!  So….are you excited to get the new Ornate Garden Suite – with the beautiful Ornate Thanks and Ornate Style bundles with those wonderful images and die sets??  Between those, and the lovely spring-flower-strewn Ornate Garden Specialty DSP, this suite is one you WILL want!  I promise.  I hope you like!

If you want to recreate this card – all the Stampin’ Up! products you need are listed down below along with the card cuts!  You’ll be able to pick up all the new Suite goodies on 1 April.

Stampin’ Up! Ornate Layers Sneak Peek with Daisy Lane

Good morning, y’all!  It’s 7am.  Sort of.  More like 6am.  Or is it?

I LOVE Daylight Savings Time.  I hope and wish for this to be THE time year-round.  Long evenings with that perfect summer light.  I wait and anticipate the return of DST every winter!  I do, however, hate changing back and forth.

In fact, apparently I hate it so much that for the first time…ever?!? – I totally spaced changing my clocks on Saturday night.  I ALWAYS change them before I go to bed.  Especially for the Spring forward time change.

Not this year.  Got up on Sunday at my normal time of 430 (thank you, Katy) – and made my coffee, fed the braticus, let the dog out and back in.   Sat down in my chair with my coffee and turned on the tv.  And saw the clock on the DVR.  My confusion was….extreme.  HOW did it take me an entire HOUR to do the things that take me 15 minutes EVERY SINGLE DAY!?

And then…I realized what I’d done.  Or…hadn’t done.  And BOOM.  Just like that – I lost an hour of the day!

Worst.  Feeling.  Ever. 🙁

I was behind the whole rest of the day.

But – I did finally get a card made for y’all!  Yeah!!  And – it’s a combination of some old and some new.  Daisy Lane, with both Daisy Punches, plays well with the Ornate Layers Dies and some Ornate Garden Specialty DSP (remember these are coming in the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog – and you’re going to get your hands on them early on 1 April!).  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one comes from the Freshly Made Sketches challenge this week.

And – I liked it for the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge, too!

I started with some of the new Ornate Garden Specialty DSP that I matted on Mint Macaron for the card front.

The Whisper White panel is cut using one of the dies in the new Ornate Layers Die set.  See it there?  Right in the middle of the bottom set.  That’s the one I used!

I ran it thru the die cutting machine three times to create the three shapes in the sketch.

Then I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Mint Macaron mat and onto the card front.

Using the leaves in the Nature’s Thoughts die set from the new Coordination Product Release, I cut three “feathers” – two in Old Olive and one in Mint Macaron.

On a piece of Whisper White, I stamped the large daisy from the Daisy Lane set in stamped-off-once Terracotta Tile and cut it with the Daisy Punch.  I stamped two of the small daisy in stamped-off-TWICE Terracotta Tile – and cut them with the Medium Daisy Punch.

Using my Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends Combo Pack, I colored the daisies and then adhered them together with Liquid Glue.

On another piece of Whisper White, I stamped a sentiment from Daisy Lane in Old Olive.  Then I cut it with the next-to-smallest rectangle die in the Stitched So Sweetly Die set.

I laid out the elements on my card front until it said “yep – THERE it is” – and took a picture.

To make it easier to put it all together, I picked up my daisy and sentiment and adhered them together with Liquid Glue.

Then I put all the pieces together onto the card front.  I used Liquid Glue to adhere the Old Olive feathers….errr leaves.  Then some Glue Dots for a length of Mint Macaron twine from the Nature’s Twine pack.  Then I added the Mint Macaron leaf/feather with a couple of Dimensionals.

The final piece was to add the flower/sentiment combination element with some Dimensionals.

I used a few of the new Gilded Gems (from the Ornate Garden Suite) – a large one in the middle of the flower and several more here and there – and the card front was done!

Oh – did you see that?  It’s a cool little doohickey for holding up cards!  We all got one at the Spring STAMPede event on Saturday!

3-D Printing.  Cool, huh?? Thanks, Sandra Hernandez!! 🙂

Anywho…on the inside, I added a second sentiment from Daisy Lane in Old Olive on a Whisper White panel.  Across the bottom I added a strip of Mint Macaron card stock and another strip of the Ornate Garden Specialty DSP.  Then I added another Gilded Gem.

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another daisy on the front – in full-strength Terracotta Tile…

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

Et Voila!  Daisy Lane is a perfect harbinger of SPRING!!  And – just right for the first real day of DST!  I love that we can punch TWO sizes of the pretty daisies.  And it’s really looking like the elements in the Ornate Garden Suite will not only work together perfectly but will ALSO work well with so many of our much-loved stamp sets and goodies!  I hope you like!

Want the Ornate Garden Suite elements RIGHT NOW??  Well – folks who join Stampin’ Up! right now can select Ornate Garden to help fill your Starter Kit!  And – on top of your Starter Kit –  you’ll ALSO get the new Mini Cutter, DSP Sampler Pack and a FREE Stamp Set of your choice.  All with FREE SHIPPING!  Whoo-hoo!  Give me a holler and let me get you set up – Sale-A-Bration (and all the “extras”!) ends on 31 March.

Sometimes Finny and I have some pretty good conversations.

I’m pretty funny – at least….that’s what HE tells me!

I’ll tell a good one and he just laughs and laughs!!

He also thinks I’m danged smart.

And since he’s awfully smart, too, we frequently have some pretty good discussions about a lot of deep subjects.

Like….what if Luke had run into Kirk instead of ObiWan?  Or…what if Tony Stark had been bitten by a radioactive spider and Peter Parker was trapped in the cave??

Yeah.  THAT level of deep.

Stampin’ Up! Ornate Garden Suite Sneak Peek Video Tutorial

Good Friday morning, y’all!!  Hoping your week has been good and your weekend is looking to be a good one.  Are you stocking up on water, toilet paper, hand sanitizer, etc? If you listen to the news at all…man – what a goat rope – the media is having a hey-day stirring the coronavirus pot, aren’t they??  I mean – WE built an underground bunker JIC, but…I draw the line at buying 87 cases of water and toilet paper!  Now…87 cases of Dimensionals?  Hmmm…. 😉

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’ve posted that we have a new suite coming to y’all soon.  It’s an Early Release from the upcoming 2020-2021 Annual Catalog (yes – that’s right around the corner – Christmas can’t be far behind! 😳😳😳😳).  The Ornate Garden Suite is….gorgeous.  And you can get it on 1 April (unless you’re a Demonstrator – or sign up now, then…it could already be on the way to you!).  I used it to make a Double-Easel Fun Fold card.  Take a look-see:

 

I first saw this fold  from Janie – the Craft Princess out on YouTube.  I watched her video to see the card cuts and then…made it for myself with this gorgeous new suite.  I love the multiple spots available to showcase the beautiful Ornate Garden DSP!  You guys know I love an easel card – so…TWO easels on ONE card? Yes, please! 🙂

The concept is easy – create a large easel card and a baby easel card.  Attach the baby easel to the large easel to act as the “easel stop”.  I made my easel card bases in Old Olive for this one.

On the front of the large easel, I used Liquid Glue to adhere a piece of Ornate Garden DSP.

Using the Ornate Layers Dies (which is bundled with the Ornate Style stamp set as part of the new suite), I cut a Terracotta Tile frame.  HINT:  These are very detailed dies – I highly recommend that you grab the Take Your Pick Tool (if you don’t have it already) AND the Die Brush Tip.  You’re going to want it! 😉

Atop that, on Whisper White, are three Tuxedo Black Memento Ink daisies from the Ornate Style set.  I colored them with my So Saffron and Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blends Combo – plus a little Light Calypso Coral.  In the corner is a Terracotta Tile flourish from the Ornate Style set.

The mini-me easel has more Ornate Garden DSP, matted on Terracotta Tile on the front and “inner liner”.  Notice that there is Gold Foil embossing on some of the papers in the DSP pack! Sweet!! 🙂

I stamped a sentiment from the Ornate Thanks set in Terracotta Tile on Whisper White and cut it with a Stitched So Sweetly Die (“adjusting” the die to make it a little longer than it actually is!).

I made a figure-eight from Linen Thread wrapped around my hand four times and adhered it to the front of the mini-easel with Glue Dots – then I popped the sentiment over top with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The easel stop for mini-me is a stacked flower cut with three dies in the new Ornate Borders Die set (which will be bundled with the Ornate Thanks stamp set.

Folks – this stamp set is SO cool – with wonderful phrases in a beautiful scripty-handwritten font – you’ll be able to say Thank You about a gazillion different ways!!

Anywho – I cut the large flower in Crushed Curry (cuz…I don’t have “Bumblebee” colors yet.  Yes – that’s a HINT!!), the medium flower in Terracotta Tile and the smallest in So Saffron.  Then I stacked them up with Liquid Glue, added a new Gilded Gem (from the Suite!) and then popped it into place with a Stampin’ Dimensional.

For the inside, I added another piece of Ornate Garden DSP (I decided to use the same design as the front of the mini-easel) matted on Terracotta Tile to the inside of the large card base.  On a Whisper White die cut frame (a smaller frame from the Ornate Layers set), I stamped one of the many sentiments from Ornate Thanks in Terracotta Tile ink.  I adhered that at the top of the inner liner.  Then I popped the mini-easel on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

And that’s it for the card!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more daisies on the front…

…and more pretty Ornate Garden DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Oh my goodness, y’all!!  I.  Love.  This.  New.  Ornate Garden Suite!  The two beautiful bundles….Ornate Thanks and Ornate Style….are perfectly complemented by the gold-foil accented Ornate Garden DSP.  So many sentiments – such beautiful flowers – and I haven’t even talked about the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder.  What???

I hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix


We have 30 acres of land.  Now – granted – there’s a lot of trees and fenced areas not useful for parking cars/trucks/tractors/equipment/etc.  BUT – there is, indeed, a lot of road and out-of-the-way places, too.

My husband – bless his heart – can, with unerring accuracy – park one of the aforementioned items RIGHT.  SMACK.  DAB.  in the middle of…wherever I need to be able go – on the four-wheeler, with the horses, in the golf-cart.

Un.  Erring.  Accuracy.

And – he doesn’t even need a GPS – a laser – a micrometer….nuthin’.

Apparently – Finn IS his father’s son.

Case in point.

Go ahead – roll the laundry cart past him.

I’ll wait. 😉

Stampin’ Up! Well Dressed in the Clubhouse 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!

For my card today, I used a couple of new goodies that you’ll be able to get for free when the Sale-a-Bration Second Release goes live on 3 Mar (or….quicker if you join my team – just throwing that out there!).  I picked the Well Dressed stamp set (new SAB) and the Clubhouse stamp set (2020 Jan – Jun Mini Catalog), plus…Flowering Florals Specialty DSP (new SAB!) to make you a masculine birthday card.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Lifetime of Lasting Elegance

Good Monday morning, y’all!  Hope you’re heading into a stress-free week!

Did you know….Have you HEARD?!?  We’ve got another Sale-A-Bration Release coming on 3 Mar for you!  Whoo-hooo!!  Keep reading and I’ll bring you a digital peek!

The card I made today uses the sweet Last A Lifetime stamp set and the bundled Lasting Elegance Dies.  AND – I’ve used a couple of new papers from the Sale-A-Bration second release.  Take a look-see:

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

And my color palette is from the Color Throwdown challenge.

Now – what’s that gorgeous flower you see on the front of my card??  It’s fussy-cut from one of the new papers in the SAB Second Release – called Flowering Foils Specialty DSP.  When you select this $50-Level 1 SAB 2 reward, you’ll get twelve single-sided sheets of four designs.  All the papers are foil-embossed in Rose Gold or Silver foil.  They’re made for coloring, too – with sponges/daubers, Sponge Brayer, Stampin’ Blends…what have you!  Check them out!

To create my card, I started with a piece of Whisper White card stock that I ran thru my die-cutting machine with the corner frame die from the Lasting Elegance die set.  Then I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Night of Navy mat.

Using the 2 7/8″ wide rectangle die from the Stitched So Sweetly die set, I cut out a square from a piece of Pool Party embossed vellum from…the new So Very Vellum Specialty Vellum.  THIS is another new pack of paper – it’s a $50 Level-1 SAB 2 reward, too!  And you’ll get 6 sheets of dry-embossed vellum  – 2 each in Pool Party, Purple Posy and Soft Sea Foam!

I used Glue Dots to adhere the vellum square to the corner of the Whisper White panel.

I cut the small corner die from Lasting Elegance from a piece of Whisper White.  Left by itself, the die cuts the design from a piece of card stock – leaving negative space.  By placing the die on the corner of the card stock…

…and then using the outline die and running it back thru the machine…you’ll end up with a die cut corner!

I adhered that to the vellum square with a little Liquid Glue.

I stamped a sentiment from the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set (from the Annual Catalog) in Night of Navy on Whisper White and cut it with a Stitched So Sweetly Die – then adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue

I used Glue Dots to wind a length of Petal Pink 1/4″ Metallic-Edged Ribbon….

For the flower, I colored one of the large foiled flowers in the new Flowering Foils Specialty DSP (coming on 3 Mar) with my Petal Pink and Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Combo Packs and my Light Night of Navy and So Saffron Blends.  Then I fussy cut the flower and popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

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

On the inside, I cut the frame from Lasting Elegance again from a Whisper White panel.  In the corner, with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, I stamped the large flower image from the Last A Lifetime stamp set.  I colored the flower image with my Petal Pink and Pool Party stampin’ Blends Combo Packs and my Light Night of Navy and So Saffron Blends.  Then I added a few Champagne Rhinestones.

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another Last A Lifetime flower on the front…

…and more colored Flowering Foils Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  How beautiful is the Last A Lifetime stamp set and bundled Lasting Elegance Dies???

And I KNOW you’re excited for those beautiful new papers, right??  Well – 3 March, they can be yours!  Along with all the other goodies that you can get for free – check them out!

Or…JOIN MY TEAM right now, and you can pre-order them as a demonstrator!  The awesome Sale-A-Bration Joining Special is still available – and I would LOVE to have you on my team!  Check out all the deets right here!

We have Big Balls!

Hey – none of that, now.  Get out the gutter!!

We have FITNESS balls – and they’re Big!

I got them blown up yesterday.  I did the biggest one with the tiny little hand pump included in the box.

THAT was a bit of a workout all on its own.

Finn…supervised.

What is this fresh nonsense, Mom??

Once I FINALLY got it all blown up and corked off (as it were), I just stepped back and let him look it over.

He spent some time woofing at it – just in case there was any doubt who was in charge of what around here!

He did sniff it a time or two…

But mostly he kept a careful distance.

I asked the Dad to blow up to two smaller balls.

HE used the air compressor in the barn.  Duh!!  WAAAAY quicker!

Once they were blown up – I let them loose in the aisle.

And – of course – did NOT have my phone.  So…didn’t catch the bounding and pawing and playing and pushing-the-ball that happened.  But – I will soon!

He may never play trei-ball competitively, but…I DO think he’s going to have some fun herding our Big Balls! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Botanical Easter Promise

Happy FRIDAY!!  Whoo-hooo!!  Hope you’ve got something fun planned for the weekend?  I’m thinking about heading south a bit to attend a little Thirty-One Gifts soiree.  We’ll see!  And – I’m going to get Wayne to help me blow up the three fitness/yoga balls I bought this week to help me and Finny learn treiball.

What?  You thought I might use fitness/yoga balls for YOGA?  Or…FITNESS??!

ROFL!!!  🙂

So – I got a new stamp set this week – it’s called Easter Promise.  And it’s got some beautiful flower images as well as sentiments.  I paired it up with the pretty paper from the Botanical Prints Product Medley to make today’s card.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one was inspired by this week’s CAS(E) This Sketch challenge.

I started with a piece of Pretty Peacock paper from the wonderful Botanical Prints Product Medley and matted it on Daffodil Delight for the card front.

Then I cut a Stitched Rectangle from Daffodil Delight, embossed it in the Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder (this may be my favorite embossing folder EVER!!) and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I wrapped some of the Old Olive 1/4″ Twill Ribbon (from the Botanical Prints Medley) around the card front – securing it in the back with Glue Dots.

For the sentiment, I stamped the pretty flower image from Easter Promise in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a piece of Whisper White.  Using my Daffodil Delight and Old Olive Stampin’ Blend Combos and the Light Mango Melody Blend (for the stamen), I colored the image.

When it was completely dry, I added the big sentiment over it in Versamark Ink.  I sprinkled it with Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat set it with my Heat Tool.

With another die from the Stitched Rectangle set, I cut the sentiment and popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I tied a small bow from the Old Olive Twill Ribbon and adhered it with a Glue Dot.

Finally, I added one of the sweet little bees from the Product Medley with a Glue Dot – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a second sentiment from Easter Promise in Pretty Peacock on a Whisper White panel.  At the bottom, I added the flower image in Tuxedo Black and colored it with my Blends.  Then, cuz I like them a LOT!, I added another Product Medley bee with a Glue Dot!

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Easter Promise flowers on the front…

….and I added more of the Botanical Products DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This card highlights the beauty of a Product Medley – a curated grouping of products that work together and let you and your creativity SOAR! – and the Botanical Prints medley is no exception!  The papers are gorgeous and the accompanying stamp set, dies, labels, die cuts, ribbon and embellishments go perfectly hand-in-hand!

And, of course, Easter Promise brings perfect images and sentiments to celebrate the Miracle of the Season!

I hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix


Here it is.

The Lip-Look.

It’s one of my favorite looks from The Man.

He gives it to us often.  Usually when we say something that interests him.  Or that he didn’t understand.

First – the closed mouth to achieve “the lips”… the equivalent of…”say what now?”

And then the slight head-tilt.

The equivalent of…hmm.  That IS an interesting question.  I’ll ponder that for a nano-moment!!

Stampin’ Up! Parisian Beauty and Blossoms 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 challenge, I just sort of fell on the Parisian Blossoms Specialty DSP – it just made sense.  Since I hadn’t used the Parisian Beauty stamp set, with its bundled Parisian Dies – I thought this would be a great time!  And so…take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Botanical Prints Product Medley Thank You

Happy happy….well.  YOU know!  It’s the middle of the week – and it’s a short one at that.  Gotta love a four-day work week, right?!? 🙂

The new 2020 Jan – Jun Mini Catalog has a wonderful Product Medley – called the Botanical Prints Medley.  A product medley is a group of papers, embellishments, stamps and dies carefully curated by Stampin’ Up! to help crafters create all sorts of projects.  I used it to create today’s card.  Take a look-see:


The layout for this one is from this week’s Fab Friday challenge.

I started with some Pretty Peacock DSP (part of the Botanical Prints Product Medley) and adhered it to the front of my Pretty Peacock card base with Liquid Glue.

The art work is a piece of Whisper White, matted on Terracotta Tile.  I wrapped some Terracotta Tile 1/2″ Scalloped Linen Trim around the panel, securing it in the back with Glue Dots.

I stamped the pretty berry image from the Botanical Prints stamp set (included in the Medley) in Tuxedo Black on a seperate piece of Whisper White.  I cut them out with their matching die.

I colored those die cut berries with my Pretty Peacock and Old Olive Light Stampin’ Blends.  You don’t really even need the Dark blends – the shading lines in the images do all the work for you! 🙂

I laid the die cuts onto the art panel and used them to determine where to stamp two more berry images in Tuxedo Black.  These I left uncolored.

I popped the two die cut berries onto the card front with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The Botanical Prints sentiment is stamped in Terracotta Tile on one of the banners included in the Product Medley – and then popped over the ribbon with Dimensionals.

I added a Linen Thread double-loop bow with a Glue Dot on the left side – and one of the sweet little bee embellishments (yep – from the Botanical Prints Product Medley) on the right – also with a Glue Dot.  Then a few Pretty Peacock gems from the Noble Peacock Rhinestones finished off the card front!

On the inside, I added a couple more of the berries in Tuxedo Black – coloring them with the Pretty Peacock and Old Olive Light Stampin’ Blends – to a Whisper White panel.  I also added some more of the Noble Peacock Rhinestones! 🙂

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more colored berries on the front…

…and some more of that beautiful Botanical Prints DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Wow – what a beautiful grouping of goodies this is!  Botanical Prints will bring you a lovely stamp set – with  coordinating dies – botanic print designer paper, labels, die cut images, laser cut panels and…the bees!  THE BEES!!!

Got video?

Yep.  Right here!  Check it out.  And then…get the Botanical Prints Product Medley for yourself.  I hope you like!
