Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Place Encircled in Warmth Sneak Peek

‘Sup, y’all?? How goes your week?  We’re 1/5th of the way there, so…hang in there!  We’re starting to mold, I think – as I type this on Monday evening it sounds like it’s pouring.  Again!  Sure wish I could send it all west where they need it so desperately!  🙇‍♀️🙇‍♀️🙇‍♀️

My card today is another sneak peek from the new Jul – Dec 2021 Mini Catalog.  AND it’s another Christmas card!  I’ll get off it in a minute – but…let’s pretend I’m playing Christmas in July – and…the challenge I played with really aimed me at this suite.  Okay?  That’s my story and I’m stickin’ to it!

This one features the new Encircled in Warmth stamp set (coming on 3 Aug!) – which coordinates with the Encircled in Beauty Dies from the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog.  And the new Peaceful Place Specialty DSP was an obvious choice.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Ombre Inspired Thoughts Beauty of Friendship Sympathy Card

Happy Happy Hawwwmp Day, y’all!  Did you have some fun with the new 2021-2022 Annual Catalog yesterday!  Not gonna lie – I had a parrrtaaay!  My credit card was so grateful when my demo discount kicked in!  Not to say it wasn’t still bruised but…the wounds will recover!!  Let me know if you’d like to get in on that sweet deal-y-o…we’ve made it even SWEETER right now! 😉

While I wait for my new goodies to arrive, I used some old-new-goodies that I picked up in the past couple of weeks during the pre-order period (just another little perk of demonstratorship!).  I pulled out the Inspired Thoughts bundle and the Beauty of Friendship stamp set.  Look what happened when I paired them with new Ombre Specialty Paper.

I was playing along with the TGIF challenge this week!

This card is silly-easy to make so…buckle up!

I started by adhering a piece of the Gorgeous Grape Ombre Specialty Paper to a piece of Basic Black with Liquid Glue for the card front.

From another piece of Basic Black, I cut the big trees die from the Inspiring Canopy die set (bundled with Inspired Thoughts for a 10% savings!).  I used Liquid Glue to adhere the die cut to the card front – then trimmed the excess from the sides with my Paper Trimmer.

I stamped the Inspired Thoughts sentiment in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Gorgeous Grape and cut it with a Rectangle Stitched Die.

I popped the sentiment over the trees with Black Stampin’ Dimensionals.

To finish off the card front, I added some silver diamonds from the new Silver & Clear Epoxy Essentials.

On the inside, I stamped a second sentiment – one of my favorites! – from Inspired Thoughts in Gorgeous Grape on a Basic White panel.  Then I stamped the tree trunk, leaves and ground from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set in Smoky Slate.  A final silver Epoxy Essentials diamond by the tree finished it off.

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

My Basic White Medium Envelope got the Beauty of Friendship tree images in Smoky Slate on the front…

…and some Subtles 6″ x 6″ DSP in Highland Heather on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Wow!  I LOVE this Inspiring Canopy die!  And the bundled Inspired Thoughts set is chock-a-block full of wonderful sentiments.  Beauty of Friendship just seemed like a great complement to this bundle, too.  And…Ombre Specialty Paper.  Yikes – it is SO pretty!  The pack comes with Gorgeous Grape, Poppy Parade, Mango Melody and Night of Navy.  I can see making this exact card in all four of those colors – maybe just use a different sentiment pairing!

Did you know…BOTH these bundles are part of my Bundle #2 – It’s a Beautiful World bundle?  Yep.  ‘Tis!  Check it out right here.

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

Finn Fan Fix 

On Tuesday, Cerah got to spend a big part of the day in the pasture.  She grazed and napped in the shed.  And ignored her daughter (or actively hid from her – which makes Cady crazy!).

She also drank a lot.  I went down to double check the trough when she was there getting a drink and was thrilled when….

Yep – she was feeling good enough to play in the hose.

And – she was ill as a hornet when there was STILL no hay in her stall!  😉

I think we’re on the mend.

Knock on wood….

Stampin’ Up! Spiral Dye Inspired Thoughts Sneak Peek

Good morning, everyone.  Thanks for all the kind messages that so many have sent about Cerah.  She’s on an upward trend – so I’m cautiously optimisic!

I’m sorry I wasn’t able to meet up with y’all on Facebook last night but…it just wasn’t going to happen.  🙁

But the card I made is kind of fun….yeah, BABY!  The 60’s called and wants their tie-dye shirt back!  Yes – I used the brand new Spiral Dye background stamp and a few cool sentiments from the new Inspired Thoughts stamp set.  These are both coming in just TWO DAYS on the 4th in the new catalog.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from the Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge this week.

And the wild color scheme is from the Global Design Project color challenge!

And it fits nicely with the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.

I started with the Spiral Dye stamp and my Stamparatus.  First, I stamped the image in Coastal Cabana.  Then I rotated the Basic White cardstock panel 180 degrees and stamped the image a second time in Bumble Bee ink.  I matted the panel on Magenta Madness to make the card front.

I cut a Basic White panel and a Magenta Madness mat and used my Layering Circle Dies to cut a smooth circle from the White panel and a slightly larger scalloped circle from the Magenta panel. I took the first smooth-side circle die that I’d used on the Basic White panel to cut the center out of the Magenta Madness circle – creating a frame.

 

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the white panel to the Magenta mat.  Then I used a little more of the Glue to adhere the scalloped-edge frame to the white panel.  Then I popped the whole thing over the card front with Black Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Basic White, I stamped an Inspired Thoughts sentiment in Magenta Madness.  Then I snipped a banner end.  I made a mat of Magenta Madness and adhered the sentiment to it with Liquid Glue.

Using Black Stampin’ Dimensionals and a little Liquid Glue, I popped the sentiment onto the card front.

I used two lengths of Black baker’s twine from the new Baker’s Twine Essentials Pack (coming on 4 May in the new 2021-22 Annual Catalog) to tie a simple bow, which I adhered with a Glue Dot.

I added a few Matte Black Dots and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped a second Inspired Thoughts sentiment in Magenta Madness on a Basic White panel.  Then I added a strip of Coastal Cabana paper from the new Brights 6″ x 6″ DSP pack – which is also matted on Magenta Madness.  A single Matte Black Dot finished it off.

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

My Basic White Medium Envelope got a few fun sentiments from Inspired Thoughts on the front..

…and I used a little more of the Brights 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  So…did YOU have a tie-dyed t-shirt??  I sure did – heck I MADE tie-dyed shirts!  This Spiral Dye background set brings it back, doesn’t it?  I love the color possibilities for fun card elements.  And the all-sentiments-all-the-time Inspired Thoughts is a wonderful set with so many great sentiments to use on your projects!

I hope you like!  And are getting excited for Tuesday!! 🙂  In addition to the new catalog going live we’ve got TWO amazing new promotion starting then, too – read one down to get the deets!

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

Finn Fan Fix 

 

So…as we keep taking the next day and the next to help Cerah recover – part of the program is hand-grazing a few times a day.  On Saturday she was making a concerted demand to go here…there…wherever the clover and tiny grasses were.

Finn…helped.

 

Including partaking of a little of the grasses and clovers as he rested.

Stampin’ Up! Color & Contour Days to Remember Sneak Peek with Video Tutorial

Morning, y’all – happy Friday!  We’re headed into another weekend – yeah!

If you were able to join me yesterday for my YouTube live, I appreciate you spending part of your day with me.  If not, but you’d like to check it out, here’s the replay on YouTube! 🙂

So I used a stamp set that looks like it would be complicated and confusing if you just look at it in the catalog.  The Days to Remember set is a genius way to make a calendar for any month of any year!  And I paired it with the super pretty Hand-Penned DSP and the Color & Contour stamp set with the wonderful, bundled Scalloped Contours dies.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one was inspired by the sketch at this week’s Paper Players challenge.

I started with some pretty floral Hand-Penned DSP and matted it on Misty Moonlight for the card front.  Then I matted a strip of a second design on Misty Moonlight and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

On a piece of Basic White, I stamped the days-of-the-week image from Days to Remember in Misty Moonlight.  I added “May” in Mint Macaron.  Then, in Bumble Bee ink, I stamped the days.  It’s hard to explain how to do that – so…check out the video, okay?  I show that particular piece starting at around 4:30 in. 😉

Then I cut the calendar out with the next-to-largest die in the Scalloped Contours set.

I used the little circle image from the stamp set in Misty Moonlight to highlight the day I wanted to…you know…remember! 😉

Then I stamped the larger sentiment in Misty Moonlight and popped the panel onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I used the two flower images in Color & Contour – stamping them both in Mint Macaron on Basic White.  Then I cut it with the die in the Scalloped Contours set.

You can see how I’ve used a permanent marker to identify the “top” of the two stamps and the die.  You should be able to add a similar mark to your set – and that’ll make it easy-peasier to line everything up!

I added the flower to the card with some Liquid Glue.

To finish – I used a Glue Dot to adhere a Pale Papaya Loose Flower Flourish to the top of the calender and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped a second Days to Remember sentiment in Misty Moonlight on Basic White.  Then I added the flowers again in Mint Macaron and a single Pale Papaya Genial Gem (coming on 4 May!).

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

My Basic White Medium Envelope got another Color & Contour flower on the front…

…and more of the Hand-Penned DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Y’all – I promise that this stamp – which made me totally scratch my head when I looked at it in the catalog – is not nearly as whoo-whoo sci-fi as it looks.  Although it IS pretty darned genius! Days to Remember can help you make mini calendars – cool scrapbook pages – and amazing cards!  And Color & Contour, with the wunnermus Scalloped Contours die set is…one of my favorite new goodies!

I hope you like!

Yesterday was National Peace Rose Day.

Yes.  That’s a thing!

Mine decided to get in on the fun!

Not to be outdone – the lavender is putting on a total show!

Nothing to do with Finn – other than he likes to chase the bumblebees that are enjoying the flowers! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Elegantly Said Sneak Peek for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good morning, y’all!  It’s Thursday – which means it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!!  We’ve got a sketch challenge to work with today 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 decided to play with the Elegantly Said stamp set for today’s card.  I just got the pretty metallic-foiled Simply Elegant Specialty DSP and made a card with my fave design in the pack!  Take a look-see:

And here’s our hop sketch challenge.

I also played along with the Tic-Tac-Toe challenge.  Went across the middle row.  🙂

I started with a piece of Basic Gray cardstock that I embossed in the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder.  Then I used a Blender Brush to very lightly brush the ridges and swirls of the embossed image with Whisper White Kraft Ink.

I matted the panel on Smoky Slate for the card front.  Using Stampin’ Seal – I adhered a Square Vellum Doily.

I cut my fave design from the Simply Elegant Specialty DSP with a Stitched Rectangle Die and adhered it to the card front with Black Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut a piece of Copper Foil with a smaller Stitched Rectangle Die – embossed it in the Painted Texture folder and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

Using the large foliage die in the Forever Flourishing Die set, I cut a piece of Gold Foil – then adhered the leaves with Liquid Glue.

I tied a small simple bow with the Silver twine from the new Simply Elegant Trim pack and adhered it with a Glue Dot.

I placed a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock into my Stamparatus and, using the Marker-to-Stamp technique – colored and stamped just the first part of the Elegantly Said sentiment with my Basic Gray Stampin’ Write Marker.  Then I cut it with the Rectangle Stitched Die.

I stamped the Elegantly Said floral image in Smoky Slate over top of the sentiment.  Then I used a couple of Black Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop the sentiment onto the card front.

A few silver Metallic Pearls finished it off!

On the inside, I again used my Stamparatus – this time coloring the SECOND half of the sentiment with my Basic Gray Stampin’ Write Marker and stamped it on a Very Vanilla panel.  I added the floral in Smoky Slate and a single silver Metallic Pearl.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Smoky Slate mat and into my Basic Gray card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got the Elegantly Said floral on the front in Smoky Slate…

…and more of the Simply Elegant Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This truly IS Simply Elegant paper, is it not?  And the gorgeous images and sentiments in the Elegantly Said bundle complement it perfectly!

I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Quiet Meadow Sneak Peek Triple Panel Card

‘Sup, y’all??  Happy Tuesday!  I hope your week is going well!  Our weather has been…gorgeous!  Warm enough to have the house open all day and night.  Bright sun – the flowers are blooming and I think the strawberries are trying to do their thing!  We planted on Monday and the patio is really starting to be a pretty spot!  And it smells heavenly! 🙂

My card today features its own flowers and is another sneak peek of the Quiet Meadow stamp set – didn’t even need to use the amazing bundled Meadow Dies!  Get this – and the Pansy Petals DSP – just ONE WEEK FROM TODAY!  Whoo-hoo!! Once you have it in hand – I hope you’ll use it to make today’s card. Take a look-see:

The inspiration for this card came from the FUSION challenge this week!

I started with some pretty Pansy Petals DSP in gingham Pale Papaya that I matted on Pale Papaya for the card front.

Next, I cut a narrow panel of Basic White and placed it in my Stamparatus.  I positioned the sweet wildflower image from Quiet Meadow in the Stamparatus and then used the Marker-to-Stamp technique to color the stamp in Poppy Parade and Evening Evergreen using those Stampin’ Write Markers.

I cut the panel into three equal sized panels and adhered them to a Pale Papaya mat.  Hint:  when doing this technique adhere the two end pieces first.  AND – I made the length of the mat an extra 1/8″ longer than usual.

Using the script image in the Quiet Meadow set – I stamped each panel with it in stamped-off-once Pale Papaya.

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

I stamped the Quiet Meadow sentiment in Poppy Parade on Basic White and cut it with the most narrow Stitched Rectangle Die.  I popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Using a Glue Dot, I adhered a Pale Papaya Loose Flower Flourish (coming on 4 May!) to the sentiment – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I once again used my Stamparatus to stamp the Quiet Meadow image using my Poppy Parade and Evening Evergreen Stampin’ Write Markers.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Pale Papaya mat and into my Evening Evergreen card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Basic White Medium Envelope got a reprise of the Quiet Meadow floral on the front…

…and a little more of the Pansy Petals DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I mentioned at the start that I didn’t need the full Quiet Meadow bundle for this particular card…

…but I’m really glad I have it in my stash.  Those die cuts are AMAZING!  Check out what I did with them in a previous card right here!  I love this Quiet Meadow stamp set (and matching Meadow Dies) so much – and they’re just perfect to pair with the gorgeous, spring-y Pansy Petals DSP!

I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! True Love Pansy Petals Sneak Peek

Good morning and welcome to the week!  Guess what happens one week from today?  That’s 3 May.  Does that date ring a bell??  Yep – you got it.  That’s the last day you’ll be able to order from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog!  So…if there are things you’re wanting – you might want to get busy!

Of course, that means that the day AFTER one week from today….the brand new and amazing 2021-2022 Annual Catalog with be live!  Whoo-hoo!  THAT is the day I’ll be ordering all our share goodies to divide AND all your Special Bundles!  You’ve still got time to get in on both great deals, so…. 😉

My card today features a little already-available and a little coming-next week!  True Love DSP (available right now) sets the stage for Pansy Petals DSP flowers and sweet Pansy Patch sentiments (coming next week)!  Take a look-see:

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

And the color palette is from the Color Throwdown challenge.

I started with a piece of the True Love DSP and, using a Blending Brush, colored the panel with Crumb Cake ink.  Then I matted it on Poppy Parade for the card front.

I found two likely designs from the new Pansy Petals DSP and cut a Stitched Rectangle die cut from each one.  These are adhered to the front of the card with Liquid Glue.

I adhered a Gold Hoop Embellishment to the card front with a few Glue Dots.

Using the large and small outline die in the Pansy Die Set, I cut three pansies from the Pansy Petal DSP.  I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere one of the larger flowers over the hoop.

I tied a double-loop Linen Thread bow and added it with a Glue Dot.  Then I used double-stacked Dimensionals to add the second large flower.  The final – smallest – flower is adhered with a single Dimensional and a little Liquid Glue.

I stamped the Pansy Patch sentiment in Poppy Parade on a Basic White strip – snipped banner ends and then used a Dimensional under the right side of the strip and Liquid Glue on the left – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a second Pansy Patch sentiment in Poppy Parade on a Basic White panel.  I also used the smaller flower images with Bumble Bee and Pale Papapa ink to add some pansies here and there.  I added some flower centers in Tuxedo Black (there’s a tiny little stamp for that in the set!).

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Poppy Parade mat and into my Crumb Cake card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Basic White Medium Envelope got more Pansy Patch flowers on the front…

…and more of the Pansy Petals DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  That True Love DSP is so cool – I love that you can coordinate it with ANY color just using a Blending Brush and some ink – or Stampin’ Blends or Watercolor Pencils!  And the Pansy Petals set is…amazing!  The gorgeous Pansy Patch flowers and sentiments, perfectly coordinated with the Pansy Dies (which cut flowers right from the Pansy Petals DSP – whoohooo!).

I hope you like! And – don’t forget – the Pansy Patch Bundle and Pansy Petals DSP are just a part of my Special Bundle #3: Let’s Get Floral Bundle.  There are a LOT of other flowery wonders to be found in that one – so be sure to check it out and get your order in!

So – you can try a little bit of the beautiful new Designer Series Papers, specialty papers and treat boxes!  I’ll place our Shares order first jump out of the box on 4 May 21 and use expedited shipping so I get it back fast!  Then I’ll get it all cut up, packaged and out the door quick as I can – as early in the week of the 10th as I can manage!

For this catalog, I’m offering a New Designer Series Paper Share and you can DOUBLE it up if you like! 🙂

Shares are open to anyone – including demonstrators!  Go to my Shares Page and get your order in  – orders need to be placed by 2 May!! 🙂


If you love great deals, our Last-Chance Products Sale is the perfect time to shop. You’ll get deep discounts on your favorite products from the 2020–2021 Annual Catalog—and as an extra bonus—you’ll get a peek at the list of items carrying over to the other catalogs.  Many items will sell out fast, so don’t delay—head over to my Online Store and get started right now!

Finn Fan Fix 

So – we had a little wind overnight on Saturday.  Had a few trees down when we went out on Sunday morning.

Like…this one across the driveway!


So – Wayne pulled out the chainsaw and the heavy equipment to make it so we could leave if we wanted to.

Well – that set off a firestorm of tree felling and cutting!

Thought you might enjoy seeing my lumberjack at work – TODAY is his birthday!!   😉
