Stampin’ Up! Frosted Beautiful Baubles

Good Friday, y’all!  Our taxes are safely in the hands of the accountant.  We had a great trip to Montgomery and back yesterday – should have seen me.  Phone hooked up and hotspot cooking. Work computer and personal computer doing their thing.  Office on wheels working like a boss! 🙂

So – admin note:  Stampin’ Up! let us know that the Timeless Tidings Kit is rapidly reaching the point of going on the not-orderable list.  Please scroll down to get all the details!

Before we went, I made this card to share with you today, using the new Beautiful Baubles stamp set and a few goodies from the Frosted Bouquet and Pretty Pines die sets.  Take a look-see:

I borrowed the idea for the layout from The Paper Players challenge!

I started by adhering a piece of pretty Frosted Floral Specialty DSP to a Merry Merlot mat with Liquid Glue for the card front.  Then I used a couple of Glue Dots to adhere a length of new Tranquil Tide 1/4″ Velvet Ribbon around on an angle – securing it in the back.

I pulled out some Joyous Noel 6″ x 6″ Glimmer Paper and cut some Merry Merlot berries with the adorable die in the Frosted Bouquet Framelits.  I also cut some Tranquil Tide card stock pine boughs with the Pretty Pines Thinlits.

I adhered the boughs and berries to the card front in an oh-so-artistic way with Liquid Glue.

On a piece of Whisper White, I stamped the Beautiful Baubles ornament in Merry Merlot and fussy cut it.  Then I colored it with my Gray Granite, Tranquil Tide and Merry Merlot Stampin’ Write Markers.  I also “painted” the top and bottom section with my Champagne Shimmer Paint.

I popped the ornament on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a Galvanized Metallic Paper and Tranquil Tide Joyous Noel Glimmer Paper bow (cut with Pretty Pines Thinlits dies) to the top of the ornament with some Liquid Glue.

The sentiment is from the Festive Farmhouse Elements – I painted it with Champagne Mist and then Frost White Shimmer Paint and adhered it with Liquid Glue.

I painted a single little star (in the Festive Farmhouse Elements) with Frost White Shimmer Paint and added it to the bow with Liquid Glue.  A few more stars got some Merry Merlot with my Marker, and I added them to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I finished off with some Silver Metallic Pearls on the ornament and the card front and the card was done.

On the inside, I added a Beautiful Baubles sentiment in Granite Gray to a Whisper White panel.  A Tranquil Tide bow and Merry Merlot stars finished it off.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Merry Merlot mat and then into my Gray Granite card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Beautiful Baubles bows and stars on the front…

…and a little of the Frosted Floral Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Beautiful Merry Merlot and Tranquil Tide team up again – this time with the Beautiful Baubles stamp set and Frosted Floral DSP to create an elegant Christmas Card!  Hoep you like!

Timeless Tidings Project Kit Approaching Not-Orderable Status

Sales for the Timeless Tidings Project Kit have exceeded our forecast and are continuing strong, resulting in a significant number of backorders. It will be at least 30 days before this item is back in stock.

The kit will remain available to order until Monday, October 1 at 10:00 AM (MT); it will then be placed in not-orderable status.  So it you want to get on the list to get this pretty kit as soon as it comes back in stock, you need to get your order in before 10:00 AM (MT) on the first.  When you enter the item number on your order, you will receive a pop-up notification asking if you would like to be notified via email when this product is back in stock. This will allow you to find out immediately when the status changes for this item and it is again available for purchase.

Thanks for your patience and understanding.

Finn Fan Fix

So the Finn-ster is a boy.

ALL boy.

We’ve seen him in the water – in the mud – in the rain.

So we know it’s true.  He’s all boy.

Well.  Turns out he’s also all MAMA’S boy.

He’s a lap dog snuggle-buddy, for sure!

The tongue.  It’s just killing me!

That face.  It says…I’ve got her right where I want her! 😉

Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tidings of Joy & Noel

Happy Saturday, y’all!  Wow.  Each day feels like it takes forever to get thru – but then I look up and there’s only two weeks to go!  Yikes!  The more important day is next Tuesday.  On that day, we end the “hard” grind – and transition to cruise control.  No more 4am alarm clocks for me.  Can’t tell you how happy I’m going to be about that.  And – I think I’ll probably even get the weekend off!


So – one of the pretty new stamp sets in the 2018 Holiday Catalog is called Joy & Noel.  It’s a beautiful, two-stamp set, similar to the Floral Statements set in the Annual Catalog.  I used that set, plus the Timeless Tidings set, for my card today.  Oh – and…did I mention we’ve got new colors of Stampin’ Blends coming?  How does Shaded Spruce, Real Red, Blackberry Bliss, Calypso Coral, Basic Black and Mango Melody strike your fancy?!  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Santa’s Workshop Memories & More Sneak Peek

Good Monday!  So…this is the next-to-last 12-hour Monday for me.  After the next one, we should go back to “regular” (to include actually taking the weekend off – gasp!) so that will be a relief.  I’m not as wired for this kind of schedule as I used to be.  12 hour day?  Got it.  Five in a row?  Cool – can do it in my sleep.  FIFTEEEN days in a row?  Not so easy any more.

But – I can do anything for 2 more weeks, so…this too shall pass.  I’ll be glad, though, to get back to having a little time and a lot more creative energy to make cards.  I have a lot of “wanna” when I get to the hotel at night, but…not a lotta “DO”!

Fortunately, one of the goodies that arrived in my pre-order was a Santa’s Workshop Memories & More Card Pack.  I used a few goodies from that, along with a large Poppy Parade Santa’s Workshop Card and Envelope from the pack we got as a free give-away on the Cruise.  And not one ink pad was opened in the making of this card!  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Dashing Deer Sneak Peek on a Jaunty Angle!

Mornin’, y’all!  Weekend is almost over, huh?

So – bad news first…I won’t be able to do a FB live tonight – sorry!  I don’t get done at work until late and it just won’t work.  Sadly, that’s probably true for next Sunday, too – so…it’s very likely going to be the 19th before we can get together again. 🙁

In the meantime, I’m planning to have cards for you most days – and will bring you some sneak peeks of the new catalog!  I think you’re going to love it!

For today, I went back to the Dashing Deer stamp set and added a little bit of Corrugated Dynamic TIEF texture and some more of the Joyous Noel Specialty DSP.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Double Peppermints Extended for ONE DAY!

Hey guys – hope your weekend is going well!  I’m back in CA – after about 3 hours of sleep on Friday night!  Guess what?  I’m a little on the too-old-to-want-to-be-doing-that side of the age equation!

Which is to say…I’m draggin’!!  I got sort of unpacked, sort of set up my craft area, sort of got some groceries and…bam!  Hit the wall!

So – since I can barely sting words to twogether – I’m going to hold off on sharing the pictures of Victoria and Seattle with you – look for those next week!

Instead – I’m going to try to make it up to you by…extending my Double Peppermints Ordering Special by one more day!  If you’d missed out – take advantage of my tiredness right now!

Stampin’ Up! Cruise News from Skagway….

Mornin’, y’all!  When this posts – we’ll be waking up for the last time aboard the Explorer! 🙁  It’s been so much fun – and I can’t believe it’s almost over!  Yesterday was Victoria, B.C. and the Butchart Gardens.  Beautiful!

But – I wanted to share Skagway with you – it was so wildly beautiful – and we got to see a tiny sliver of The Yukon, too!

Upon arrival, it was instantly obvious that Skagway itself is tiny – and, in fact, we learned that its only industry is tourism.  And that’s about a 5 month season.

We had two wonderful days in Juneau and Skagway and I wanted to just share some of the fun with you!

We arrived in Alaska early on Sunday morning – I did post some pictures of that on my Facebook page.
