Stampin’ Up! Some Make-and-Take 2018 Occasions Sneak Peeks

Good mornin’, y’all!  It’s Sunday and I’m on my way home!!  Or will be soon, depending on where you’re reading this!  Here’s what it looked like out my hotel window yesterday once I’d made it to SLC.

A pretty vast change from the day before…but look how pretty the sun is shining thru the clouds!  I will miss the high desert weather, there’s no doubt!

So – make note of this, y’all!  I’m sorry to disappoint, but there’s no way I can get home today, unpack and have everything ready to do a FB Live Video this evening.  I mean, I’m good, but…that’d just be biting off more than I can chew. 😦  So…we’ll reconvene next Sunday night!

I figured I’d share a couple of the make-and-takes that we did at OnStage – they’ll give you another taste of what’s coming in the 2018 Occasions Catalog.

The first goody is from the Petal Passion Suite – using the Petal Passion stamp set…  

We stamped the little bird in Calypso Coral on a Whisper White Circle then popped it over some of the Petal Passion DSP – that we’d added a little Calypso Coral color to with a Blender Pen.  Check out the new Whisper White 1/4″ Organza Ribbon underneath!

Our next make-and-take used the Bubble Over stamp set and bundled Bottles & Bubbles Framelits.  

Check out the DSP…that’s from the Sale-A-Bration flyer – and will be available FREE with a $50 purchase.  I love that the SAB goodies – so many of them! – coordinate with sets in the Occasions Catalog.

We decorated one of the new Silver Mini Gable Boxes – which is part of the Sweet Soiree Suite!  This is a cake-decorator’s dream suite – and perfect for wedding, engagement, or birthday celebrations.  It includes – wait for it! – new Embossing Paste in Shimmery White and Silver!  With a new set of Sweet Soiree Decorative Masks to help you “decorate” your card cakes!

Now – I didn’t finish my make-and-take all the way, cuz I need to get it home.  But…here’s what it WILL look like!  I love these little treat/gift holders!  

It’s embellished with Sweet Soiree Specialty DSP and gorgeous new Berry Burst 3/8″ Metallic-Edge Ribbon (it’s edged in Silver!). And, with the advent of Dark Pink, Silver and White Sweet Soiree Ready Shreddie (think Easter basket grass – but not green!) to put inside to cradle and cushion your treats…you’re going to want bunches of these!

At our last “station” we used the new Tutti Frutti Suite to make a couple of adorable little tags.  We stamped and punched some fruit – using the Fruit Basket stamp set and bundled Itty Bitty Fruit Punch Pack…

…added a little paper from the Tutti Frutti DSP Stack (this is a 6″x6″ pack)…

…and made these!

Seriously cute set, y’all!

Okay – that’s enough to whet yer appetite for this wonderful new catalog, yes?

I’ll be back tomorrow.  Cleaner (from Finn-Lickings) and ready to rock and roll!  And – guess what?  Got another pretty sneak peek for you…

Stampin’ Up! Paper Pumpkin and some SU! Updates

Hey, y’all!  Happy World Card Making Day!

So – it’s Saturday.  But…I’m working today, so…bleh! 🙂  And the way the week’s gone, my hind-end’s been dragging when I get back to the room in the evening and…tired Mary = No crafty Mojo!  I sit down at my little crafting area and just…stare.  

And stare.

And then I go to bed.

Finn-Fan Fix  (you’ll have to settle for re-runs until I get back home to take fresh photos!!)  

But – I did take this picture driving back to the hotel yesterday.  One advantage to working on a day when the whole rest of the base is off is…you can just stop in the middle of the road.  One – to let the guy there at center photo meander across the road to rejoin his buddies and two…to take their picture!  Genuine wild horses.  Up close and personal.

You can see they were mighty impressed with my presence…

Stampin’ Up! Touches of Texture Patterned Pumpkins

Well – it’s Friday.  But it’s really like Thursday since I have to work tomorrow.  But – we get Sunday and Monday off!  Whoo-Hoo!!  Thank you Chris Columbus! 🙂

Today’s card is a collage card – which I love to do.  But – it’s still got a lot of open space, so…it’s kind of a clean-and-collage-y card!  And it uses the so-pretty Patterned Pumpkin Thinlits with some help from the Touches of Texture stamp set.  Take a look-see:

As you might have noticed, my “photo booth” has changed up a bit.  We’ll see how this works!

I played along with four challenges on this one – the first, from Hand Stamped Sentiments, inspired the layout.

The Paper Players lent the Fall floral theme…

And…the color scheme from the Fab Friday challenge worked perfectly for the theme!

Finally – the Global Design Project was looking for Grateful-themed cards…

I started with a piece of Very Vanilla card stock.  Using the large splatter image in the Touches of Texture stamp set, I stamped it twice in Fresh Fig ink.  I didn’t re-ink between the stamps, either.  Then I matted the panel on Tranquil Tide and Cajun Craze card stock panels with Fast Fuse.

I added a couple of small flowers from Touches of Texture in Cajun Craze, just to add a little more “collage” to the card.  

Next up, I punched a set of leaves in Fresh Fig and Tranquil Tide with the new Leaf Punch, and cut a larger set of leaves in Tranquil Tide with the die in the Eclectic Layers Thinlits.  I creased all the leaves a little with my Bone Folder and adhered them with Liquid Glue to the card front.

To make the pumpkin, I cut the large open pumpkin from the Patterned Pumpkin Thinlits a few times – twice in Cajun Craze and once in Copper Foil.  I adhered one of the Cajun Craze Pumpkins to a piece of Cajun Craze card stock and fussy cut the excess (to give me something to glue to).  Then I took the Copper Foil cut-out pieces and laid them in the Seaside TIEF and embossed them.  And then I used Liquid Glue to adhere them inside the pumpkin shape.  I did one more run thru of the Patterned Pumpkins die – just enough to yield a Tranquil Tide stem!

I popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The sentiment, from All Things Thanks, is stamped in Fresh Fig on a Very Vanilla strip.  I cut banner ends with my Paper Snips, edged the banner with my Cajun Craze Stampin’ Write Marker and popped it on with Liquid Glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The final pieces are some Cajun Craze Enamel Shapes and a bow tied with a length of Jute Twine and one of 1/4″ Copper Trim. The Jute Twine piece is the result of separating the three strands that are twisted together to make the Twine.  I adhered the bow with a Glue Dot.

On the inside, I stamped the splatter image from Touches of Texture again in Fresh Fig on a Very Vanilla panel.  Then I adhered the Copper Foil Patterned Pumpkin over that, with the Cajun Craze cut out pieces in the middle.  I ran the die back thru to cut a Tranquil Tide stem and added it as well!

I Fast Fused the panel to a Tranquil Tide and Cajun Craze mat and into my Thick Very Vanilla card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got another Touches of Textures Fresh Fig splatter and a Cajun Craze pumpkin from the Patterned Pumpkins on the front…

…and a few more Fresh Fig splatters and Cajun Craze flowers from Touches of Texture on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Some Fall-colored florals from the Patterned Pumpkins Thinlits, the new Leaf Punch and the Eclectic Layers.  Throw in some Touches of Texture and you’re all set.  Hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Christmas Seasonal Lantern on Plaid!

It’s Monday, y’all.  And that’s all I’m going to say about it! 🙂

If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video, I sure do appreciate it!  If you weren’t able to join, but would like to watch the tutorial, here’s a link to it on YouTube!

This is one that uses what’s become my favorite new Designer Papers – the beautiful plaids in the Christmas Around the World DSP.  And it all works together with the Seasonal Lantern stamp set and bundled Lantern Builder Framelits.  Take a look-see:

The layout was inspired by this week’s Global Design Project sketch challenge.

I matted my pretty Christmas Around the World plaid on Basic Black for the card front.  Then I cut the lantern shape with the die from the Lantern Builder Framelits and the detailed lantern from Gold Glimmer Paper.

The candle is stamped on a piece of Whisper White, in Tuxedo Black Memento ink and filled in with Real Red.  These are both stamps in Seasonal Lantern, as is the “glow” image that I added in Daffodil Delight.  I used my Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Write Marker to color the flame.

I adhered a gold Foil Snowflake with Liquid Glue, then wrapped a piece of Basic Black 3/8″ Shimmer Ribbon around the card front, adhering it in the back with scotch tape.  I added the lantern with more Liquid Glue.

Check out the video to see how to make the matted label with Basic Black and Gold Glimmer Paper using the Pretty Label Punch.  I stamped the sentiment from Seasonal Lantern in Versamark on Whisper White, sprinkled it with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heated it up.  Then I cut banner ends with my Paper Snips and adhered it over the matted label.

I cut some pine boughs in Garden Green with the Pretty Pines Thinlits and adhered them with Liquid Glue.  The pine cones, from Seasonal Lantern, are stamped in Early Espresso and Soft Suede and cut with their die in the Lantern Builder Framelits.  Once all the embellishments were on, I popped the label and sentiment on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I topped it all off with a bow tied from a length of Basic Black Solid Baker’s Twine and two lengths of Gold Metallic Thread, adhered with a Glue Dot.

On the inside, I matted a strip of the Christmas Around the World plaid DSP on Basic Black card stock, then added another length of the Basic Black 3/8″ Shimmer Ribbon around the Whisper White panel.

I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Basic Black mat and into my Thick Whisper White card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium envelope got a trio of Seasonal Lantern candles in Real Red, Garden Green and Daffodil Delight on the front…

…and more of the pretty Christmas Around the World DSP on the envelope flap.  Plus some more candles!

Et Voila!  Gotta love this plaid paper – and the versatility of the Seasonal Lantern bundle – Christmas – Fall – Hannukah!  Hope you like!

Don’t miss the fact that the Christmas Around the World DSP is included in the Buy-Three-Get-One-Free DSP sale going on now thru the end of the month!  And you’re going to want to take advantage of my Ordering Special and the World Card Making Day celebration, too!  Lots of opportunities to stock up and save!!

Stampin’ Up! Seasonal Lantern Video Sneak Peek and some Ordering Specials!

Mornin’, y’all!!  I’m on my way!  After spending yesterday afternoon struggling to get all my stuff in two 70 pound suitcases.  Who knew?!?  A little bit of paper and some ink and some stamp sets.  And – not even sort of all my stamp sets!

I like driving much much better!  

We got it all in – and by we, I, of course, mean the Master Packer.  Here’s the million dollar question…how the heck am I going to recreate the puzzle when it’s time to come home!  I took pictures – but…

Well.  As Scarlett would say – Fiddle-Dee-Dee….I’ll worry about that tomorrow!

So – God willing and the internet cooperates, I’ll be able to do a video with you guys tonight.  Fingers crossed – if I can’t get set up or if I just fall flat on my face…I may not make it.  But – I’m going to try!  Start like you mean to go on, yes?

And I love this card – it’s back with some more Black and Gold and a little Glittery-ness.  And plaid…glorious plaid!!  I used the Pretty Label Punch and the Seasonal Lantern stamp set and bundled Lantern Builder Framelits.  Here’s the sneaky peek!

So think good thoughts and hopefully I’ll be Live at 8pm Eastern right here on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page!  Watch the FB page for updates in case there’s a change.  

Hope to see you then! 🙂

Now – on to my Ordering Special!  It’s a new Stampin’ Up! year and I wanted to get it kicked off with a bang!  So…I’m offering Free Shipping and Double Peppermint Points for one week only!!

Yoghurt is pretty popular in our house.

I like it.  Wayne likes it.  The cats like it – mostly Leo.

Finn likes it!  He licks every single nook and cranny (after waiting not-so-patiently for Leo to decide if he wants any or if this isn’t one of the preferred flavors).

Then he picks it up and prepares to destroy the tub.

Which is our cue to retrieve it before it’s shredded up and all over the house!

Oh yea – he cares not one whit what flavor it is.  He’s pretty undiscerning….

Stampin’ Up! Stamping Sunday Blog Hop – Labels to Love


Good Sunday morning, y’all!  I’ll have a second post a little later with my FB Live Video sneak peek!  

I’m excited to be a guest in the Stamping Sunday blog hop this week!  We’re all creating projects using the so-pretty (and versatile!) Labels to Love stamp set from the Stampin’ Up! 2017 Holiday Catalog to share with you today.  

I decided to add a few bits and pieces for my card – a little Christmas Around the World plaid DSP, some Pretty Pine boughs and berries, and an assist from Christmas Happiness.  Take a look-see:

I started by matting a piece of Christmas Around the World DSP (the plaid – my favorite!) on a piece of Gold Foil for the card front.  Next I pulled a piece of Whisper White and embossed it in the new Quilt Top TIEF, matted it on Gold Foil, and adhered it over the card front with Liquid Glue.

I used my Pretty Pines Thinlit dies to cut some Garden Green pine boughs, Real Red leaves and Gold Foil berries.

For the label, I inked the pretty sentiment from Labels to Love using my Garden Green and Real Red Stampin’ Write Markers and stamped it on Whisper White.  Then I punched it with the matching Everyday Label punch.  I also punched a label in Gold Foil, then adhered the sentiment to its mat – offset just a little – with Liquid Glue.

After a quick dry-fit to be sure I knew where I wanted to put what – I used Liquid Glue to adhere the Pretty Pines boughs, leaves and berries to the embossed panel.

I popped the matted sentiment over the embellishments with Stampin’ Dinensionals.  Then I tied a little bow from some Real Red Mini Tinsel Trim and adhered it with a Glue Dot.

The final touch was a small Black Rhinestone Jewel and the card front was done!

On the inside, I used the pretty pine bough image from the Christmas Happiness stamp set, and stamped it twice (without re-inking!) in Garden Green in the corner of a Whisper White panel.  Then I added a strip of the Christmas Around the World DSP that I’d matted on Gold Foil over the top.  Just cuz I could, I added a Black Rhinestone Jewel!

I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Gold Foil mat and into my Thick Whisper White card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another double-stamped pine bough from Christmas Happiness in Garden Green on the front…

…and I added some more of that wonderful plaid paper from the Christmas Around the World DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  The Labels to Love stamp set really lives up to its name – you gotta love all the different label-sized sentiments for Christmas, Thanksgiving, Halloween, New Years and even Valentine’s Day!  All paired up with the Everyday Label punch.  And – of course, you can hardly go wrong with pine boughs and plaid, now can you?  Hope you like!

Now that you’ve seen my project, please take a little time to visit all the Stamping Sunday Blog Hoppers today!

Just click on the little blue box to see all the participants and links to their blogs!

Stampin’ Up! Reprieve! And…a Humongous Ordering Special!

Today my card is not a card.  It’s a…reprieve!  

For me.

I don’t have to go to Utah now until a week from tomorrow – and I don’t even have to stay longer.  Whooo!

Well – at least not yet! So…Whooo-hoo!!!

And I got good news about the hotel and that makes it all feel just a little bit easier to deal with.  So…Whooo-hooo-hoooo!!

AND – now I get to go up to our Amy’s Inkin’ Knew Team Meeting on Sunday!  Whooo-hooo-hoooo-HOOOOOOO!!!

Whew!  That’s a lot of whoo-hoooing!

Now – onto the Ordering Special.

It’s multi-faceted.  Ready?

I have a goal – not a dream (that would be awfully presumptuous!) – of having a $1000 workshop. And I want to do it in just one week.  Go big or go home, right?? 😉

What do you think?  Can we do it?  

To help us out – I’ve generated a special Host Code:  YRS26ABP

For the next week, I’d ask y’all to place your orders using that code.  And help me get that chimera of workshops, the holy grail of home parties…$1000 in retail sales!

And – as a thank you to all who order with the special Host Code in the next week – yes this is only good until the end of the month (30 Sept) – I have a few gifts!

First of all – TRIPLE Peppermint points!

Triple points makes it super fast and super easy to reach that magic number of 16 Peppermints.  Remember, when you hit that number, you’ll receive a FREE $40 gift from me that I’ll have shipped directly to you!  With this special – a single order of $149 will earn you an Instant Reward (yep – I’ll round up as a thank you!)

Second – of course you’ll get my ordering Thank You gift and one of my handmade cards (left blank so you can send it or keep it) and coordinating non-nekkid envelopes!

Finn-Fan Fix  

We had company last night – a friend of mine and his family who drove up to escape Irma.  They came to dinner and we all got to meet his wife and two lovely daughters.

Finn. Was.  In.  Heaven.  Check it.

 

Pretty sure the picture tells the whole story!

After dinner and this little love-fest, the girls asked if they could see my cards.  Duh – of course I said yes.

When I asked if they wanted to make a card…duh – of course they said yes!

So, while Finny stayed out with the adults, the young ladies and I went in and they each made my Spooky Cat silhouette card!

And a good time was had by all.
