Stampin’ Up! Young at Heart Thanks for the Laughs Sneak Peek

Happy Friday-after-Christmas!  Did you go out yesterday to hit the After-Christmas Sales?  Wayne and a friend left early and spent the day on the lake fishing – yes, it’s that kind of weather here right now!  Me and Finn?  We stayed home and watched the news with all the reports of the After-Christmas traffic and thanked our lucky stars that we weren’t out in it!

While I was doing all that, I made a card (I know – crazy!).  It uses a new set called Thanks For The Laughs (coming in the 2020 Jan-Jun Mini Catalog and, incidentally, part of my Special Bundle #8: The Say It In Ink Bundle) and a new-to-me set from the Annual Catalog called Young At Heart.  Take a look-see:

How great is that sentiment??

The interesting layout is from this week’s CAS(E) This Sketch challenge.

I started with a piece of Whisper White card stock and two strips of Best Dressed 6″ x 6″ DSP (also from the 2020 Jan-Jun Mini Catalog and available on 3 Jan).  I laid the strips out to get the layout in place – then used my Stamparatus to stamp the cute image from Young At Heart in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.

I colored the ladies with my Purple Posy and Pretty Peacock Stampin’ Blends Combos, plus my Light So Saffron and Light Crumb Cake Blends.  The blondes headband is Pretty Peacock and I used a Stampin’ Write Marker for that.

Then I adhered the DSP strips in place – and used my shiny new Paper Trimmer to cut the excess from the sides and top.  I matted the panel on Purple Posy using Liquid Glue.

I pulled out some Whisper White 1/4″ Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon – from the new catalog – and colored it with my Dark Pretty Peacock Stampin’ Blend.  I wrapped a length of it around the panel – securing it in the back with Glue Dots.

For the sentiment, I inked the top half of the Thanks for the Laughs sentiment in Pretty Peacock and stamped it on a piece of Pool Party card stock.  Then I cleaned the stamp and inked the bottom half of the sentiment and stamped it.  I cut both sentiments with a Stitched So Sweetly Die (available on 3 Jan) and popped them onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I wrapped some Silver Metallic Thread around the ribbon next to the sentiment and tied a snug knot.  Then I adhered a bow from the colored ribbon with a Glue Dot over the thread.  That helps to make it look more like I tied the bow the “right” way!

I added a few Gorgeous Grape gems from the Noble Peacock Rhinestones and the card front was done.

On the inside, I matted a piece of the Best Dressed 6″ x 6″ DSP on Purple Posy and then adhered it to a Whisper Whtie panel and trimmed the excess.  On a diagonal, I added a second sentiment from the Thanks For the Laughs set in Pretty Peacock, then added a Noble Peacock Rhinestone.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Purple Posy mat and into my Pretty Peacock card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got the two ladies on the front…

…and more of the Best Dressed 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  It’s like they were made for each other, isn’t it?  Thanks For the Laughs – with its super-fun sentiments – and the crazy women from Young At Heart go together like Caramel and Sea Salt!  I hope you like!

Happy Happy HAWWMP DAY – and MERRY CHRISTMAS!  However you celebrate, I hope you have a wonderful day with family and friends and love.  Please, if you would, spend a few minutes remembering the men and women who stand for us today and every day so that we may live all OUR days free from threat.  Too many of them will not be home with their loved ones today.  Send up a little prayer for their safety and peace!

Stampin’ Up! Music From My Heart Video Tutorial Sneak Peek

‘Sup, y’all!??  It’s the last Saturday before Christmas!  Just a few days left to do that last minute shopping – whether for gifts or…that Prime Rib!!  We’re picking ours up on Monday – just in time!  Can’t wait!

I’m also getting the Brussels Sprouts.

Yes – I am making Brussels Sprouts (my Mom is surely shocked!) – all of a sudden at the tender age of 29, I LIKE them a lot.  When I was just a kid – I detested them.  I think it may be the roasting in the oven with garlic and balsamic vinegar.  And…BACON!! 🙂

But – before the cooking commences for real – I hope you can join me for my Saturday night Facebook Live video tonight at 7pm Eastern on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page.  We’re going to make a fun-fold card using the awesome new Music From My Heart stamp set from the 2020 Jan-Jun Mini Cataalog.  Take a sneaky peek!
