Stampin’ Up! A Petal Promenade Thank You Video Sneak Peek

Hey y’all – it’s Sunday!  Which means….it’s Facebook Live video night!

As is mostly usual for Sunday, I’ll be live tonight at 8pm eastern right here on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page.  We’re going to make a card with the pretty Petal Promenade DSP and…the new A Big Thank You stamp set.  Take a Sneaky Peek!

Stampin’ Up! Stack of Little Elephants Welcome

Happy Hawwmp day!  How goes your week, my peeps??

I have a friend (yes – really!) who is expecting their first child in August.  So – as I practice my welcome-baby cards, I pulled out an adorable new bundle in the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog called Little Elephant and paired it up with some Tropical Escape DSP.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Perennial Birthday Project Kit Sneak Peek

Happy Hawwwpmp Day, y’all!  I’m sort of losing track of the days this week – it always throws me when Monday is the Holiday.  You?

So – as we approach the time of Resolutions…what resolutions are you planning to make?

Lose wieght?  Yea – on my list.  Still.

Get healthier?  Sure – assuming I can find a way to do that without exercising.  Or eradicating chocolate from my diet!

Get organized?  Yes.  Absolutely.  Positively.  Always always on my list.

Well – my project today is something that will help you (and me!) do just that!  It’s the Perennial Birthday Project Kit in the 2018 Occasions Catalog!  And it’s easy to make and includes a handy card box – with decorated dividers all ready!  Take a look-see:

This is a Project Kit – not an All-Inclusive kit – so you’ll need to purchase the Perennial Birthday stamp set and have adhesive (Glue Dots and Stampin’ Dimensionals), and some inks – Dapper Denim, Flirty Flamingo and Old Olive.  And – I did some extra decorating on the inside and the envelopes – so to make the ones you’re fixin’ to see, you’ll also need a Stampin’ Write Marker in the same colors.  Plus your Fresh Fig Marker!

When you open up the beautiful box, you’ll find 16 card bases and Whisper White Envelopes, die cuts with flowers in Flirty Flamingo, Dapper Denim and Old Olive, die cut balloons, banners….and “month” stickers to label your dividers.  They come in English, French and German!  I used English.

Seemed like the right way to go!

Each divider has lines to write birthdays you need to remember for each month!

The kit makes 4 each of 4 designs…and there are envelopes, too.  These pictures show what the kit makes just as it comes.

I used some more of the stamps in the Perennial Birthday stamp set to add a sentiment on the inside – I used the same one on all the cards – just changing whether I stamped it in Dapper Denim or Old Olive.  And I also added some flowers or other decorations.  For this one, I used the Marker-to-Stamp technique to color the little flower in Flirty Flamingo and Old Olive.

I used that technique on the inside of this card and envelope, too.  This time I also used the Fresh Fig Stampin’ Write Marker!

These next two were quick stamps on the inside and envelope.

Hint – you’ll probably want your Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to get all the sentiments and flowers and leaves where you want them!  Just sayin’!

So – if one of your resolutions is to get organized – or even if it isn’t! – this is a wonderful and lovely tool to help you!  There’s plenty of room in the box for the project cards plus more to help you be on time for all your birthday card needs in 2018 – and beyond! Hope you like and will consider adding the Perennial Birthday Project Kit and matching Perennial Birthday stamp set to your 2018 Occasions Catalog wish list! 🙂

Finn Fan Fix  

Yesterday morning I took a picture of Finn.

Yea.  Shocker.

But it reminded me of a similar photo I took just over a year ago.

Remember this one?  It’s from November of last year.  About a month after we brought him home.

He had to sort of reach over into the bowl to reach it.

Fast forward to yesterday.

They grow up so fast. 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Thankful Thoughts on a Painted Autumn

Happy Tuesday!  Are y’all out shopping with 2.7 million of your closest friends or are you, like me, hunkered down in the relative safety of your home?  I’m thankful for leftovers, but I’m pretty certain that if all I had in the house was a bottle of hot sauce I wouldn’t go out on the day after Christmas.

Nuh-huh!

So – early on Christmas morning, I got up – I have no idea why – and made some cards to share with you today.  I needed them to come together quickly so I could get on with the pressing business of the day.  Chiefly, preparing this…

Once again – perfect Prime Rib.  Thank you, Chef John of Allrecipes!!  Took this picture before anyone started on the platter – there was some left, but…not a ton! 🙂

I made 6 cards – all identical in layout with the sentiment from the Thankful Thoughts stamp set, and a couple different papers from the Painted Autumn DSP.  Take a look-see:

A few days ago, my friend Amy Koenders made some cards with the Heartfelt Blooms stamp set and a similar layout.  Which I liked so much that I picked it up and did just a little modification.  You can see the cards that inspired me right here!

These were fun and quick to make, y’all – and how cute would they be as a little gift set?  

I started with a card base – I used Thick Very Vanilla, Soft Sky and So Saffron – cut to 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ and scored and folded at 4 1/4″.

Each card has a smaller piece of the Painted Autumn DSP adhered to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I inked the sentiment from the Thankful Thoughts stamp set in Early Espresso and, with my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig, lined it up and stamped each card base.

Then I wrapped a piece of Linen Thread twice around the card base and tied a little bow.  A Rhinestone Basic Jewel finished off the card fronts.

On the inside, I adhered another piece of the same Painted Autumn DSP to the inside of the card with Liquid Glue.  Then I matted a piece of Very Vanilla on either Early Espresso or Cajun Craze – depending on the DSP choice – and adhered that with Fast Fuse.

And, folks, that was it for the card!

Each envelope got a matching envelope flap with the same DSP I’d used on the cards.  Apparently, I’m in a food coma and didn’t take a picture of the envelope flap with the sunflowers.  Trust me – they’re a real thing!

Et Voila!  Easy peasy – a super quick way to use up some DSP if you’ve got extra and make some really pretty thank you cards!  It IS the season for thank you cards, after all!  One quick stamp with a Thankful Thoughts sentiment and some cutting and glueing and…done!

Hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix  

You guys know that Finn fancies himself a lap dog, right?  All 65 pounds of him.

I’ve taken to sitting on the sofa so there’s more room for him – when he’s in the mood for some lap time.

It’s a big sofa, y’all – four cushions long.

Those are wasted cushions – we really only need one!

Please notice – in this too dark picture – his hind-end is on….me.  Not the sofa.  I’ve got his bone in my right hand holding it for him to gnaw on.

Thankfully he’s not spoiled at all – that would be a real shame!

What?!?

Stampin’ Up! Merry Christmas!!

Merry Merry Christmas, y’all!  I hope this finds you well and opening presents and making dinner preparations!  I’ll be deviling eggs and bringing my Prime Rib to room temperature in readiness for cooking!

No card today – just a greeting from me and Finn.

Thank you all so very much for a most wonderful year! 🙂

As you sit down to dinner today and give Thanks for the Blessing of this Day and this Season, please remember our men and women in the military.  So many of them are spending this day away from their family and friends so that we may be with ours in Peace and safety.  Say a little prayer for them, if you please.

I’ll see you tomorrow, my friends.

Stampin’ Up! Southern Serenade Sneak Peek Thank You card

Happy Christmas Eve, y’all!  

I suppose, by rights, I should have brought you a Christmas card today.

But I didn’t!  Sorry!  

And this isn’t a video Sneak Peek – I’m taking tonight off – and so should you! 🙂

Instead – I have a sneak peek of another new stamp set coming soon to a 2018 Occasions Catalog near you!  It’s called Southern Serenade and it’s lovely!  I used it this time with some paper from the True Gentleman DSP to make a thank you card.  Take a look-see:

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

I started with yet another gorgeous paper from the True Gentleman DSP (which you can get on 3 Jan – or get a taste of this and all the papers with a Catalog Share).  I matted it on Crushed Curry with Fast Fuse to make the card front.  Then I ran another strip of Crushed Curry down the card front.  Over that I layered a length of Night of Navy 5/8″ Crinkled Seam Binding, securing it in the back with scotch tape.

My art piece, from the new Southern Serenade stamp set (available 3 Jan), is stamped in Crumb Cake on a piece of Shimmery White card stock and colored with Light and Dark Stampin’ Blends in Daffodil Delight, Pool Party and Old Olive.  Then I matted it on Crushed Curry and popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

My sentiment, which is also from Southern Serenade, is stamped in Night of Navy on Shimmery White and cut out with the new 1 3/8″ Scallop Circle Punch (avail 3 Jan).  I edged it with my Crushed Curry Stampin’ Write Marker and then added some Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back.  I used the Dimensionals to wind some loops of Gold Metallic Thread to the back of the sentiment, then I popped it onto the card front.  A few Rhinestone Basic Jewels completed the front of the card!

On the inside, I stamped some of the small flowers from Southern Serenade in Crumb Cake up the side of a Shimmery White panel and colored them with the Daffodil Delight and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends.

I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Crushed Curry mat and into my Night of Navy card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.  

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got some more of the Southern Serenade flowers up the side…

…and a little more True Gentleman DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I love this True Gentleman DSP – so versatile and gorgeous in Night of Navy, Tranquil Tide and Crumb Cake as the primary colors.  And Southern Serenade is beautiful – the flowers, a wonderful lace image and lovely fonts.  Hope you like and are adding these to your lists!

Finn Fan Fix  

The only part of Miss Sonya’s weekly visit that the Man doesn’t care for is…the vacuum.

He attempts to avoid it if possible – retreating to the bedroom as she works her way forward in the house.

And he keeps an eagle eye – stationing himself at the door to the bedroom so he can watch the hallway just in case any rogue vacuum approaches.

And he doesn’t know why – WHY, MOM, WHY?!?! – I keep taking his picture!  I think he’s starting to get a complex!

I can’t help it very much – he’s too danged cute to not capture on “film”!

Stampin’ Up! Heartfelt Blooms Sneak Peek Thank You card

Happy day-before-Christmas-Eve, y’all!  Time is growing short, so I hope you’ve got everything done that needs doing!

I know I’ve already shown you a card using today’s Sale-A-Bration stamp set – Heartfelt Blooms – but I just had to use it again.  This time I paired it up with some Bundle of Love Specialty DSP from the Annual Catalog to make a soft and pretty thank you card!  Take a look-see:

The layout is from this week’s Global Design Project.

I started by Fast Fuse-ing a piece of the Blushing Bride paper from the Bundle of Love Specialty DSP to a piece of Very Vanilla card stock for the card front.

The vertical strip is a piece of Crumb Cake card stock that I embossed in one of the Petal Pair TIEFs (available 3 Jan in the Occasions catalog).  I added some “stitches” with my Crumb Cake Stampin’ Write Marker and then adhered it with Liquid Glue.

I wrapped some Very Vanilla Soild Baker’s Twine around the panel a couple of times, securing it in the back with scotch tape.  Then I tied a bow around both strands.

For the art panel, I stamped the Heartfelt Blooms image (available free with a $50 purchase starting 3 Jan) in Crumb Cake on Very Vanilla, and cut it out with the largest circle Stitched Shapes Framelits die.

Using my Blender Pen, I ever so lightly colored the flowers with Powder Pink (picking the ink up from the lid of the pad), the leaves in Pear Pizzazz and the middles in Daffodil Delight.  I matted the circle on a scalloped circle of Very Vanilla, that I’d cut with my Circles Layering Framelits.  Then I popped it on the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

For my sentiment, I cut a strip of Very Vanilla and, using my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig, stamped the Heartfelt Blooms sentiment in Crumb Cake.  I snipped banner ends and edged it with the Crumb Cake Stampin’ Write Marker, then adhered it with Liquid Glue and a Stampin’ Dimensional under the right end.  And that was it for the card front!

On the inside, I stamped the Heartfelt Blooms image again in Crumb Cake on a piece of Very Vanilla and colored it with my Blender Pen.  Then I matted it on another piece of the Bundle of Love Specialty DSP.

I Fast Fuse’d the matted panel on a Very Vanilla mat and into my Powder Pink card base,  popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

On the front of my Very Vanilla Medium Envelope, I added another Crumb Cake Heartfelt Blooms image – colored similarly to the card front and inner liner…

… and then added some more of the Bundle of Love Specialty DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  It’s hard to keep from going back to this Heartfelt Blooms stamp set, folks – it’s just one of the most spectacular images I’ve ever seen!  I can’t wait for you to be able to get it for yourself – for FREE! – starting 3 Jan!  Hope you like!

My next club will start up on 3 Jan (coincidently with the arrival of the 2018 Occasions Catalog and the start of Sale-A-Bration!) and I have a few openings available.

How does it work?  Well – at a glance…

You sign up for a 6 month term and agree to:

  • Place a $25.00 minimum order each month
  • Place your order by the 20th of each month
  • Use the Host code I’ll provide in an email sent out at the beginning of each month

And what do you get in return?

  • Based on a random draw, you’ll be the “host” for one of the six months
  • In your month, you’ll be guaranteed a workshop total of $150 – meaning no less than $15 in Stampin’ Rewards for you to spend!

  • When you place a host club order – which you’ll do each month – you’ll get DOUBLE peppermints for that order!  So – if all you did was place your $25 order for the six months, you’d end up with 12 Peppermints.  Most folks end up with all 16 (and then some) – and earn a free $40 gift!
  • At the end of the club, you’ll get to choose a free stamp set up to $20!
  • And – you get first dibs on the next Online Club!

Finn Fan Fix  

Want to know my favorite day of the week?

Okay – I can’t hear your answer so I’m just going to tell you.

It’s the day Sonya comes to clean the house.

We spend a little bit in the morning picking up all the little bits of flotsam and jetsam that accumulates during the week.  And then…like an angel with a mop and an odd enjoyment of cleaning houses – Sonya sweeps in and sets it all to rights.

A few hours later, as her car drives away for 7 days, I bask in the delight of a clean house.  In those fleeting moments before the flotsam escapes and the jetsam begins to build again.  

That’s why that’s my favorite day.

It’s also pretty high on Finn’s list.

For an entirely different reason (no – he cares not about the cleanliness of the house!).

Nope.  Sonya – who cleans many houses with four-legged dog people living in them – brings treats!

Now – we all know that, abused and neglected as he is, Finn gets no treats whatsoever on any other day of the week!  So – he’s pretty danged happy to see her.

Today, he met her in the living room and politely accepted her offered treat.

And excused himself to partake.

Miss Sonya brings the very bestest bones!

Stampin’ Up! Last Minute Gift Ideas!

This is my second post for the day – if you’re looking for the card I shared this morning, check it out right here!

Now, y’all.  I know there are people among us that get their shopping for Christmas done in…September.  Like me.  I totally do that.

Uhm….

Anywho….if you happen to not be one of those hyper-organized folks (yep – this sounds way more like me!) and have one or two on your list for whom you’ve not shopped, let me give you some perfect last minute ideas. 🙂

You could get in your car, brave the Friday-before-Christmas traffic and go to the mall.  That’s an excellent idea.

Or not.

You could…pay like triple-quadruple shipping to perhaps have something show up sometime on Monday from an online store.

Risky.  And expensive.

ORRRRR – you could give the gift of creativity right from the comfort of your barcalounger and pajamas!

And I’ve got two options for your consideration:  

Give the gift of a Paper Pumpkin Subscription!

A Prepaid Paper Pumpkin Subscription makes for a wonderful and thoughtful gift for the holidays for the crafter (or budding crafter!) on your list!  Here’s how to do it!

  • You place an order in my online store and checkout.  You will earn your very own Host Rewards for purchases over $150 (even when combined with other items you want to have shipped to you).  Bonus – if all you order is Prepaid Paper Pumpkin subscriptions – you won’t pay a dime in shipping!
  • You receive an email with a Prepaid Paper Pumpkin Subscription Code.
  • Give that code to a friend, family member or keep it for yourself (I won’t tell!).  If you’d like something “official” – you can click on that picture up above and print out a fun Gift Certificate!
  • Stick your “official” gift certificate in a beautiful, handmade Christmas card you made with your own two hands or write the code on a wonderful gift tag….whatever works best for you…and present it with a flourish to the lucky recipient!  Brace yourself for the excitement!
  • If the recipient doesn’t already have a Paper Pumpkin account, they should set one up here.
  • On the main screen of their account, they add the Subscription Code.
  • Starting the following month, they’ll find a Paper Pumpkin box in their mailbox for every month of the subscription. If they want to continue past that time, they can simply add their credit card information to continue.

Option 2 – How about a Gift Certificate from me – for anything the recipient wants in the Online Store?

  • I can provide a lovely Christmas-y Gift Certificate (in digits for you to print out whilst still in your pajamas!) for any amount you’d like!  
  • Once you’ve printed the certificate – use any creative gifting methodology you like!  “But Mary…what if I live in North Dakota and it’s going to my bestest friend in south Florida?!” Well…send the digits of the certificate in an e-mail!  Add a selfie of yourself holding the Gift Certificate! (consider getting dressed before snapping the shot…) to the email!
  • To redeem their gift, your lucky recipient will send me an e-mail or give me a call and I’ll place her order for her!  
  • Bonus – your gift-ee will receive Peppermint Points for the amount of the gift certificate and will begin her journey of creativity!  But – as a reward for your generosity….I’ll also give YOU the same number of Peppermint Points!!  Win-win-WIN!!

So – two ideas – all doable today!  Or even tomorrow!

Get after it, y’all.  And then settle back, sip some peppermint hot chocolate and binge watch Christmas movies the rest of the day! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Sweet Little Something Sneak Peek!

Well – we made it!  It’s Friday.  And it’s a three-day weekend!   And…it’s Christmas weekend!  So…Yeah!!

I, since it’s Christmas, made a New Baby card today – I had my massage (finally – it’s been way too long!) today and my massage therapist has only been back at work for a week after having her daughter.  So…I wanted to take her a little card.

The new Sweet Little Something stamp set (available 3 Jan) with it’s photo-realistic floppy-eared bunny, seemed like the perfect choice!  Take a look-see:

Like so many of us, I do spend a little time on Pinterest and a wonderful card, from Danielle Bennenk, caught my eye.  I tried to change it up a little – but…it’s so perfectly my kind of card, that…I just couldn’t improve on it!  You can check out Danielle’s original right here! 🙂

This week’s Sugar Pea Designs Mix It Up Challenge seemed like a great place to showcase my card!

I started with a panel of Very Vanilla card stock and stamped it with a very faint image of the Sheet Music Background stamp. I inked the stamp around the edges with a Crumb Cake-inked Sponge Dauber.  And I didn’t add a lot of ink!  I wanted it faded.

Then I sponged the edges with the same Sponge Dauber and Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Crumb Cake mat.

I stamped the adorable Sweet Little Something bunny on a piece of scrap Very Vanilla.  This is a three-step image and, as usual, you want to start with the darkest ink color.  Step 1 is stamped in Crumb Cake.  Step 2 is stamped-off-once Powder Pink.  And step 3 is in stamped-off-once Blushing Bride.  Then I fussy cut it and lightly sponged the cut edges with the Crumb Cake Dauber.

I adhered a loop of Blushing Bride 1/2″ Finely Woven Ribbon to the card front with some Liquid Glue.

I put some Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back of my cut-out bunny and used them to wind some loops of Linen Thread around, then popped the whole thing over the Blushing Bride ribbon.  The sentiment, from Sweet Little Something, is stamped on Very Vanilla in Crumb Cake.  I snipped banners in the ends, sponged the edges with Crumb Cake, and adhered it over the bunny with Liquid Glue.

I added some little flower images from Sweet Little Something – aren’t they just too cute?!? – in Crumb Cake ink.  Then, to top it all off, there’s a few Glitter Enamel Dots and a couple three Clear Faceted Gems.  And the card was done!

On the inside, I repeated the very-light application of the Sheet Music image in Crumb Cake on a Very Vanilla panel.  I sponged the edges and added a few more little Sweet Little Something flowers.  The sentiment, stamped in Crumb Cake, is from the Flora and Flutter Paper Pumpkin stamp set (that’s really a great set, y’all!).

I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Crumb Cake mat and into my Powder Pink card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got another Sweet Little Something bunny peeking in on the front, plus some of the little flowers.  And, since I still had the Paper Pumpkin stamp set handy, I thought an added little sentiment would be good…

…and then I added more flowers and a couple stamps of Sheet Music on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Seriously, y’all – how cute is this Sweet Little Something bunny!?  And, there are so many color combinations you could use – and all would be perfect!  Hope you like – and are adding this one to your list!

Finn Fan Fix  

Finn and I spend a lot of time doing the pause-and-catch-up game.

It goes like this.

I’m driving the golf cart around the fence line – we’re “checking fence”.  A job.

Finn is ensuring that no bugs or acorns are lurking in the leaves and bushes.

That’s a pretty time-consuming job, so I frequently have to pause, look back to see him, and then holler “Here” in my best command voice.

It’s the voice that says…now, please.

Only please is sort of…loose. 😉

He knows that voice and so he usually – like 9.5 times out of 10! – hauls his wiggle butt at light-speed to get to me and sit down by the cart.

It looks like this….

I tell myself it’s the command-voice.

Or his overwhelming desire to please me.

Reality?  He wants a cookie.

I do seriously and firmly believe that he deliberately lags back so…I’ll call him so… he can race to me so…he can…and will!…get a cookie!

He’s something of a cookie-monster!
