Stampin’ Up! Easter Promise on Pressed Petals with a Video Tutorial!

Good Friday morning, y’all!  It’s day 498 of Social Distancing.

Not really – just sort of feels like it is, doesn’t it??   It’s really starting to get real – another 30 days??  AND – Georgia just followed other states by issuing a Stay Home Order starting today.  Good idea – it’s NECESSARY.  But…I feel pretty confident that NO ONE will believe me when I whine that having my house cleaned (and not by me!)….IS essential!

And now you know.  I AM a first-world-sissy-baby.

C’mon, Mare – you’ve got a house, and food, and electricity.  The dog and cat and horses have food.  Wayne can fix or cobble together anything we need.  ZEWS 1 is on the job.  We’re healthy – and getting to the two-weeks-since-we’ve-been-anywhere-so-surely-that-means-we’re-completely-healthy point.  So…waaaaa.

Sorry.  I’m over it now.

Since along with a house and power comes internet (Thank goodness!) I was able to go live yesterday on my YouTube channel.  If you were able to join me – I appreciate you spending some of your day with me!  If not, but you’d like to see the replay on YouTube…here ’tis!

The card we made is a pretty – and pretty easy!! – Easter card, using the Easter Promise stamp set from the Jan – Jun Mini Catalog, a sweet Ornate Layers Die cut and some Pressed Petals Specialty DSP (2019-2020 Annual Catalog).  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one came from the Mojo Monday challenge…I THINK you can see which sketch I used! 😉

 

And the Easter theme fits right into the Inspire. Create.  Challenge!

I started with some of the pretty sheet music paper from the Pressed Petals Specialty DSP and matted it on So Saffron for the card front.

Next, with the long, narrow die from the new Ornate Layers Die Set, I cut a Purple Posy rectangle.  I ran it thru the die cutting machine in the Scripty 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

Then, I matted a strip of wood-grain Pressed Petals Specialty DSP on So Saffron and adhered it over top with Liquid Glue.

I cut a Very Vanilla rectangle with the next-to-largest Stitched So Sweetly die and stamped the big Easter Promise sentiment in Mossy Meadow.

Next to it – also in Mossy Meadow – I added the floral spray.

I colored the flowers with my Purple Posy Stampin’ Blends Combo and the stems with my Light Mossy Meadow Blend.

Then I popped the panel onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I used a Glue Dot to adhere a Linen Thread double-loop bow, which I topped with a purple Frosted Flower Embellishment and a Champagne Rhinestone.  And that was it for the card front.

Speaking of Glue Dots, though…

Other side of the room by my photo box.  No.  Clue.  Why.  🤷‍♀️

Anywho….

For the inside, I stamped a second sentiment from Easter Promise in Mossy Meadow on a Very Vanilla panel.  I added the flowers, in Mossy Meadow, again in the corner, coloring them as I’d done on the front.

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

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got more Easter Promises flowers on the front…

…and more Pressed Petals Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Spring and Easter all rolled up in one!  Don’t let the Easter Promise stamp set – with it’s elegant flowers and simple sentiments – pass you by!  Easter is coming soon – and cards with messages of the hope of Easter are going to be especially welcome this year, I’m thinking!

I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Witty-Cisms Thoughtful Blooms with Video Tutorial for The Paper Players

Hey y’all – it’s Sunday, which means I’ve got another fun challenge for you from the Paper Players – it’s a Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge from Joanne this week and it’ll for sure jump-start your creative mojo!  I hope you’ll come and play along.  🙂

If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video, I appreciate you spending some of your weekend with me!  If not, but you’d like to see the replay on YouTube…here ’tis!

I pulled out some more of the pretty Ornate Garden Specialty DSP – coming soon on 1 April (and available in a limited-time special bundle from me!) and then added a little Witty-Cisms and….Thoughtful Blooms flowers, punched with the Small Bloom Punch.  These are both free Sale-A-Bration goodies – available thru 31 Mar.  Take a look-see:

And here’s this week’s Paper Players Tic-Tac-Toe challenge!  These are my very favorite challenges!! Go across – down – diagonal….join the fun and show us your projects!  I can’t wait to see what you create!  🙂

And I used the sketch from the Freshly Made Sketches challenge for the layout – I just flipped it a bit!

I started with some flower-dy paper (oh – I went down the far right column on the challenge!) for my card front.

On a piece of Whisper White, I stamped the sweet little chinchilla from Witty-Cisms.  I used the Stamparatus and the Marker-to-Rubber technique to stamp JUST the chinchilla in Early Espresso.  I colored him with my Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends Combo Pack, then cut him out with the next-to-largest circle Stitched Shapes die.

I went back to the Stamparatus and used the Marker-To-Rubber technique again to color and stamp the sentiment in Mossy Meadow and Terracotta Tile.  Then I fussy cut each word and edged the resulting pieces with my Petal Pink Stampin’ Write Marker.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the die cut chinchilla to the Ornate Garden panel with a little hanging over the left edge – then I trimmed the excess with my Paper Trimmer.

Then I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Petal Pink mat.

I popped each fussy cut word on with a Stampin’ Dimensional.

I used Old Olive to stamp some Thoughtful Blooms branches and leaves above the chinchilla.  Using the Leaf Punch, I cut a couple of Mint Macaron leaves and one in Old Olive.  These I attached to the card front with Liquid Glue.

To make the Thoughtful Blooms flowers, I used Terracotta Tile and Petal Pink to stamp a variety on Whisper White.  The outline images are Terracotta Tile and the fills are Petal Pink!  Then I punched them all with the Small Bloom Punch.

Note: both these items are available right now as FREE Sale-A-Bration goodies – the Thoughtful Blooms stamp set with a $50 purchase and the Small Bloom Punch with a $100 purchase!


I adhered two of the flowers with Liquid Glue and then popped the middle flower up with a Dimensional.  A Champagne Rhinestone in the middle of each flower and two on the art circle finished off the card front!

On the inside, I stamped Happy Birthday (from the Witty-cisms stamp set) in Mossy Meadow on a Whisper White panel.  Around it, I stamped some dots from Thoughtful Blooms in Petal Pink.  In the corner, I added more flowers, branches and leaves from Thoughtful Blooms in Old Olive, Pear Pizzazz, Terracotta Tile and Petal Pink.

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Thoughtful Blooms florals on the front…

…and a little more Ornate Garden Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Gotta love the punny little sentiments and cute images in the Witty-cisms stamp set (and the Stamparatus makes multiple-color-coloring easy peasy!!).  And I have to say that the Thoughtful Blooms stamp set AND that awesome Small Bloom Punch – are two of my very favorite things from the Sale-A-Bration offerings!  I assume you’ve got them both already – but if not…hurry and get them before Sale-A-Bration leaves us on 31 March!!  I hope you like!

I’d like to say we’re done mixing dirt.

I know we’re out of Vermiculite so…we’re done for a minute! 😉

Fortunately, Finn was supervising.

Welll…for a bit.

I mean – it was HOT for a fur-dog!

He tried to get on the golf cart to rest, but his mom had left her drink right in the WAY.

Not very comfortable….

Oopsie… what bottle?!?

Ahhh – THAT’s better!!

Stampin’ Up! Ornate Layers Sneak Peek with Daisy Lane

Good morning, y’all!  It’s 7am.  Sort of.  More like 6am.  Or is it?

I LOVE Daylight Savings Time.  I hope and wish for this to be THE time year-round.  Long evenings with that perfect summer light.  I wait and anticipate the return of DST every winter!  I do, however, hate changing back and forth.

In fact, apparently I hate it so much that for the first time…ever?!? – I totally spaced changing my clocks on Saturday night.  I ALWAYS change them before I go to bed.  Especially for the Spring forward time change.

Not this year.  Got up on Sunday at my normal time of 430 (thank you, Katy) – and made my coffee, fed the braticus, let the dog out and back in.   Sat down in my chair with my coffee and turned on the tv.  And saw the clock on the DVR.  My confusion was….extreme.  HOW did it take me an entire HOUR to do the things that take me 15 minutes EVERY SINGLE DAY!?

And then…I realized what I’d done.  Or…hadn’t done.  And BOOM.  Just like that – I lost an hour of the day!

Worst.  Feeling.  Ever. 🙁

I was behind the whole rest of the day.

But – I did finally get a card made for y’all!  Yeah!!  And – it’s a combination of some old and some new.  Daisy Lane, with both Daisy Punches, plays well with the Ornate Layers Dies and some Ornate Garden Specialty DSP (remember these are coming in the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog – and you’re going to get your hands on them early on 1 April!).  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one comes from the Freshly Made Sketches challenge this week.

And – I liked it for the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge, too!

I started with some of the new Ornate Garden Specialty DSP that I matted on Mint Macaron for the card front.

The Whisper White panel is cut using one of the dies in the new Ornate Layers Die set.  See it there?  Right in the middle of the bottom set.  That’s the one I used!

I ran it thru the die cutting machine three times to create the three shapes in the sketch.

Then I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Mint Macaron mat and onto the card front.

Using the leaves in the Nature’s Thoughts die set from the new Coordination Product Release, I cut three “feathers” – two in Old Olive and one in Mint Macaron.

On a piece of Whisper White, I stamped the large daisy from the Daisy Lane set in stamped-off-once Terracotta Tile and cut it with the Daisy Punch.  I stamped two of the small daisy in stamped-off-TWICE Terracotta Tile – and cut them with the Medium Daisy Punch.

Using my Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends Combo Pack, I colored the daisies and then adhered them together with Liquid Glue.

On another piece of Whisper White, I stamped a sentiment from Daisy Lane in Old Olive.  Then I cut it with the next-to-smallest rectangle die in the Stitched So Sweetly Die set.

I laid out the elements on my card front until it said “yep – THERE it is” – and took a picture.

To make it easier to put it all together, I picked up my daisy and sentiment and adhered them together with Liquid Glue.

Then I put all the pieces together onto the card front.  I used Liquid Glue to adhere the Old Olive feathers….errr leaves.  Then some Glue Dots for a length of Mint Macaron twine from the Nature’s Twine pack.  Then I added the Mint Macaron leaf/feather with a couple of Dimensionals.

The final piece was to add the flower/sentiment combination element with some Dimensionals.

I used a few of the new Gilded Gems (from the Ornate Garden Suite) – a large one in the middle of the flower and several more here and there – and the card front was done!

Oh – did you see that?  It’s a cool little doohickey for holding up cards!  We all got one at the Spring STAMPede event on Saturday!

3-D Printing.  Cool, huh?? Thanks, Sandra Hernandez!! 🙂

Anywho…on the inside, I added a second sentiment from Daisy Lane in Old Olive on a Whisper White panel.  Across the bottom I added a strip of Mint Macaron card stock and another strip of the Ornate Garden Specialty DSP.  Then I added another Gilded Gem.

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another daisy on the front – in full-strength Terracotta Tile…

…and more of the Ornate Garden Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Daisy Lane is a perfect harbinger of SPRING!!  And – just right for the first real day of DST!  I love that we can punch TWO sizes of the pretty daisies.  And it’s really looking like the elements in the Ornate Garden Suite will not only work together perfectly but will ALSO work well with so many of our much-loved stamp sets and goodies!  I hope you like!

Want the Ornate Garden Suite elements RIGHT NOW??  Well – folks who join Stampin’ Up! right now can select Ornate Garden to help fill your Starter Kit!  And – on top of your Starter Kit –  you’ll ALSO get the new Mini Cutter, DSP Sampler Pack and a FREE Stamp Set of your choice.  All with FREE SHIPPING!  Whoo-hoo!  Give me a holler and let me get you set up – Sale-A-Bration (and all the “extras”!) ends on 31 March.

Sometimes Finny and I have some pretty good conversations.

I’m pretty funny – at least….that’s what HE tells me!

I’ll tell a good one and he just laughs and laughs!!

He also thinks I’m danged smart.

And since he’s awfully smart, too, we frequently have some pretty good discussions about a lot of deep subjects.

Like….what if Luke had run into Kirk instead of ObiWan?  Or…what if Tony Stark had been bitten by a radioactive spider and Peter Parker was trapped in the cave??

Yeah.  THAT level of deep.

I decided – when I saw the color palette – that this would be a great time to pull out my Make A Splash stamp set.  This is a host-exclusive set – meaning that you have to have Stampin’ Rewards to purchase it.  And…you get Stampin’ Rewards EITHER by hosting a workshop with orders totalling over $150 OR you place an individual order over $150.  Or…you can even choose it as your ordering gift when you order $50 or more from me!  Just throwing that out there!  Take a look-see:

And here’s this week’s Paper Players color challenge!  Join the fun and show us your projects!  I can’t wait to see what you create!  🙂

The layout for this one comes from the Global Design Project challenge this week.

I started with a piece of paper from the Birthday Bonanza DSP – it’s the same size as the front of a card base (4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″) – that I adhered to the front of a Coastal Cabana card base with Liquid Glue.

Then I built my focal art.

I stamped the fish bowl from Make A Splash in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  Across the bottom, in Coastal Cabana, I added “gravel”.

I stamped a couple of cute fishies in Calypso Coral and some grasses in Bermuda Bay and Coastal Cabana.

And – I wasn’t going to do it, but…I fussy cut a couple of fish sticky note masks…just couldn’t help it very much.

…and laid them over the fish so I could get grass “behind” them.  I even used some stamped-off-once Calypso Coral for a few more plants in the bowl!  Fish need plants, right??

I also added a stamped-off-once Coastal Cabana “waterline” and some bubbles in both blues.

For the sentiment, I pulled out the Coordinating Product Special Sending Flowers Dies.  First I cut the Calypso Coral banner for a “mat”.  The sentiment, from Make A Splash, is stamped in Coastal Cabana ink on a 3/8″ wide strip of Whisper White.

Then I laid that strip inside the cutting edge of the same Sending Flowers die – and ran it back thru my die-cutting machine.  That created the exact banner end as the mat!

I popped the sentiment over the mat with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Using Liquid Glue, I adhered the panel to a Calypso Coral mat and then to the card front.

On the inside, I didn’t use a sentiment.  Instead – I fussy cut a shorter-grass sticky note mat and created a little scene in the corner.  Here’s how.

  1.  Stamp the short grass in Coastal Cabana.
  2. Cover the image with the mask.
  3. Stamp the fish in Calypso Coral – leave it on the card stock (you can even rock it a SMIDGE!!) for a beat or two to let the ink get onto the panel good.
  4. Cover the fish with the mask (remember – the short grass sticky note mask is still in place).
  5. Stamp the larger grass in Bermuda Bay.
  6. Use Coastal Cabana to add the gravel image underneath.
  7. Add bubbles in Coastal Cabana.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Calypso Coral mat and into the Coastal Cabana card base and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got the same little fish scene on the front…

…and I added some Birthday Bonanza DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Isn’t this a fun set!?  It’s got several nice sentiment phrases in that small scripty-font I like so much and plenty of fishy images (including a really cute crab!) to make all kinds of fun underwater scenes!

I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Layered With Kindness Treat Bags

Hey guys!  Happy weekend!  When you read this, I’ll be getting ready to head south for the fun SpringSTAMPEDE!  There are four of us going from our team and we’ll get to spend the day with other demonstrators stamping and chatting and….eating bar-b-que! All the ingredients of a fun day, huh?

Just wanted to remind you that I will NOT be doing a FB live tonight – will be driving home about that time!  And…I’m pretty sure crafting-while-facebooking-while-driving is…frowned upon! 😉  But – I’ll be back on YouTube on Thursday at 1pm Eastern!

I wanted to take some little goodies with me to share with my table-mates, so…I pulled out some Copper-Dotted Treat Bags and decorated them with the Layered With Kindness stamp set and the coordinating Label Me Pretty and Label Me Fancy punches.  Take a look-see:

My color scheme – pink, orange and blue – is from this week’s Color Throwdown.

I started with a pack of the pretty Copper-Dotted Treat Bags from the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.  They’re perfectly sized to hold the Milano cookie packs I’d gotten!

The first thing I did was use the small little flower image in Layered With Kindness and stamped it all over the front of each bag in Petal Pink.

Then I folded the top down – I stuck a cookie pack inside to be sure that I left room for it – and punched two holes in the folded part of the bag.  I used a super-crafty hole punch – the one I bought from the school-supplies aisle at the grocery store! 😉

For the tag, I stamped the Happy Birthday image from Layered With Kindness in Versamark Ink on Terracotta Tile card stock.  Then I sprinkled it with Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heated it with my Heat Tool.  When it was cool, I punched it with the Label Me Lovely Punch.

On a piece of Whisper White, I stamped the For My Friend in Pretty Peacock.  I used a couple of sticky notes to mask off the flourishes on the stamp – I just wanted the words.  I punched them with the Label Me Fancy Punch.

I used the pretty flower from Layered With Kindness to stamp over the sentiment with Petal Pink ink.  Then, I used my Terracotta Tile Stampin’ Write Marker to add some faux stitches.

To make a larger tag – I cut a scallop-edge circle using the Circle Layering Dies to cut a piece of Copper Foil.  With a smaller smooth-side circle die, I cut out a piece of Petal Pink and embossed it in the new Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder.   This is part of the new Ornate Garden Suite – available to customers on 1 April!

I adhered the Petal Pink circle to the Copper Foil circle with Liquid Glue.  Then I used that high-dollar hole punch to make a hole in the top.

I added the punched out, copper-embossed Happy Birthday with more Liquid Glue.

Note: if you needed a birthday tag – you could stop right here and use this, yes? 🙂

But – I did not.  So…I popped my For My Friend label on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stuck my cookies in the bags and then tied them up.  I used some of the new Terracotta Tile 1/4″ ribbon from the Ornate Garden Suite (avail 1 Apr) and I made one with Petal Pink 1/4″ Metallic-Edge Ribbon.

To tie the ribbon, I ran the ends from the back of the bag to the front, thru the two holes in the folded-over bag top…

…and then ran the ends thru the hole in the tag, from back to front, and tied a bow!

I added a Champagne Rhinestone and the tag was done.  And on the bag!

Et Voila!  Love the flower in the Layered With Kindness stamp set – and the fonts are beautiful and perfectly sized for the Label Me Fancy and Label Me Lovely punches.

And – not for nuthin’ – these two punches ALSO work perfectly with the new Tags In Bloom stamp set – a Sale-A-Bration Second Release product available for free with a $100 purchase (before shipping and tax) thru the end of Sale-A-Bration on 31 March!

I hope you like!!

Stampin’ Up! Ornate Garden Suite Sneak Peek Video Tutorial

Good Friday morning, y’all!!  Hoping your week has been good and your weekend is looking to be a good one.  Are you stocking up on water, toilet paper, hand sanitizer, etc? If you listen to the news at all…man – what a goat rope – the media is having a hey-day stirring the coronavirus pot, aren’t they??  I mean – WE built an underground bunker JIC, but…I draw the line at buying 87 cases of water and toilet paper!  Now…87 cases of Dimensionals?  Hmmm…. 😉

If you were able to join me for my YouTube Live Video yesterday –  I appreciate you spending some of your day with me!  If not, but you’d like to see the replay on YouTube…here ’tis!

I’ve posted that we have a new suite coming to y’all soon.  It’s an Early Release from the upcoming 2020-2021 Annual Catalog (yes – that’s right around the corner – Christmas can’t be far behind! 😳😳😳😳).  The Ornate Garden Suite is….gorgeous.  And you can get it on 1 April (unless you’re a Demonstrator – or sign up now, then…it could already be on the way to you!).  I used it to make a Double-Easel Fun Fold card.  Take a look-see:

 

I first saw this fold  from Janie – the Craft Princess out on YouTube.  I watched her video to see the card cuts and then…made it for myself with this gorgeous new suite.  I love the multiple spots available to showcase the beautiful Ornate Garden DSP!  You guys know I love an easel card – so…TWO easels on ONE card? Yes, please! 🙂

The concept is easy – create a large easel card and a baby easel card.  Attach the baby easel to the large easel to act as the “easel stop”.  I made my easel card bases in Old Olive for this one.

On the front of the large easel, I used Liquid Glue to adhere a piece of Ornate Garden DSP.

Using the Ornate Layers Dies (which is bundled with the Ornate Style stamp set as part of the new suite), I cut a Terracotta Tile frame.  HINT:  These are very detailed dies – I highly recommend that you grab the Take Your Pick Tool (if you don’t have it already) AND the Die Brush Tip.  You’re going to want it! 😉

Atop that, on Whisper White, are three Tuxedo Black Memento Ink daisies from the Ornate Style set.  I colored them with my So Saffron and Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blends Combo – plus a little Light Calypso Coral.  In the corner is a Terracotta Tile flourish from the Ornate Style set.

The mini-me easel has more Ornate Garden DSP, matted on Terracotta Tile on the front and “inner liner”.  Notice that there is Gold Foil embossing on some of the papers in the DSP pack! Sweet!! 🙂

I stamped a sentiment from the Ornate Thanks set in Terracotta Tile on Whisper White and cut it with a Stitched So Sweetly Die (“adjusting” the die to make it a little longer than it actually is!).

I made a figure-eight from Linen Thread wrapped around my hand four times and adhered it to the front of the mini-easel with Glue Dots – then I popped the sentiment over top with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The easel stop for mini-me is a stacked flower cut with three dies in the new Ornate Borders Die set (which will be bundled with the Ornate Thanks stamp set.

Folks – this stamp set is SO cool – with wonderful phrases in a beautiful scripty-handwritten font – you’ll be able to say Thank You about a gazillion different ways!!

Anywho – I cut the large flower in Crushed Curry (cuz…I don’t have “Bumblebee” colors yet.  Yes – that’s a HINT!!), the medium flower in Terracotta Tile and the smallest in So Saffron.  Then I stacked them up with Liquid Glue, added a new Gilded Gem (from the Suite!) and then popped it into place with a Stampin’ Dimensional.

For the inside, I added another piece of Ornate Garden DSP (I decided to use the same design as the front of the mini-easel) matted on Terracotta Tile to the inside of the large card base.  On a Whisper White die cut frame (a smaller frame from the Ornate Layers set), I stamped one of the many sentiments from Ornate Thanks in Terracotta Tile ink.  I adhered that at the top of the inner liner.  Then I popped the mini-easel on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

And that’s it for the card!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more daisies on the front…

…and more pretty Ornate Garden DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Oh my goodness, y’all!!  I.  Love.  This.  New.  Ornate Garden Suite!  The two beautiful bundles….Ornate Thanks and Ornate Style….are perfectly complemented by the gold-foil accented Ornate Garden DSP.  So many sentiments – such beautiful flowers – and I haven’t even talked about the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder.  What???

I hope you like!

If you want to recreate this card – all the Stampin’ Up! products you need are listed down below along with the card cuts!  And – if you want this suite RIGHT NOW – then I can help you join the team and get it for yourself!  Just give me a holler!

We have 30 acres of land.  Now – granted – there’s a lot of trees and fenced areas not useful for parking cars/trucks/tractors/equipment/etc.  BUT – there is, indeed, a lot of road and out-of-the-way places, too.

My husband – bless his heart – can, with unerring accuracy – park one of the aforementioned items RIGHT.  SMACK.  DAB.  in the middle of…wherever I need to be able go – on the four-wheeler, with the horses, in the golf-cart.

Un.  Erring.  Accuracy.

And – he doesn’t even need a GPS – a laser – a micrometer….nuthin’.

Apparently – Finn IS his father’s son.

Case in point.

Go ahead – roll the laundry cart past him.

I’ll wait. 😉

Stampin’ Up! Flowering Foils Tags in Bloom!

Happy Happy Hawwwmp Day!!  Hope your week is going swimmingly!

Today is the second day of the Second Release for Sale-A-Bration!  Be sure to check out the five new FREEBIES that you can pick up thru the end of March! 🙂

My card today uses TWO of the new SAB goodies – the Tags in Bloom stamp set (free with a $100 purchase before shipping and tax) and the Flowering Foils Specialty DSP (a level 1 – $50 goody!).  Take a look-see:

The Tags in Bloom stamp set coordinates with the Label My Lovely and Label Me Fancy Punches from the 2020 Jan – Jun Mini Catalog!

The layout for this card was inspired by the sketch at CAS(E) This Sketch this week!

I started with a panel of Mint Macaron that I embossed in the Basket Weave 3D Embossing Folder and matted on Melon Mambo for the card front.

I picked a flower-strewn design from the  Flowering Foils Specialty DSP and used my Stampin’ Blends Combo Packs in Petal Pink, Mint Macaron and Lovely Lipstick to color the flowers, leaves and berries.  Then I adhered the panel to the card front with Liquid Glue.

The strip across the middle is a piece of Mint Macaron Subtles 6″ x 6″ DSP, matted on Mint Macaron and adhered with Liquid Glue.

Then I added a Pearlized Doily with more Liquid Glue.

On a piece of Whisper White, I stamped the sentiment from Tags in Bloom in Melon Mambo.  Around it, I stamped the stitched label image in Mint Macaron.  Then I punched it out with the Label Me Lovely punch.  I popped the label onto the Doily with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a Melon Mambo gem from the Noble Peacock Rhinestones and the card front was done.  Easy and also…peasy! 😉

On the inside, I added a second sentiment from Tags in Bloom in Melon Mambo to a Whisper White panel.  In the corner, I stamped the flowers and leaf from the set.  For the flowers, I used full-strength Petal Pink or Melon Mambo for the outline images – and stamped-off-once versions of the same colors for the fill images.  The leaf is done in full-strength Mint Macaron.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Melon Mambo mat and into my Whisper White card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whsiper White Medium Envelope got more of the Tags in Bloom flowers and leaf on the front…

…and more of the Mint Macaron DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I love this Tags in Bloom set – and love it even more for coordinating with TWO punches from the Mini Catalog (and those punches are already in perfect coordination with the wonderful Layered With Kindness stamp set from the Mini!

The Flowering Foils Specialty DSP is gorgeous and perfect for coloring – you’ll get 12 one-sided pieces of 12″ x 12″ paper in the pack with your $50 purchase!

I hope you like! 🙂

If you want to recreate this card – all the Stampin’ Up! products you need are listed down below along with the card cuts!

Don’t forget that I’m giving DOUBLE Peppermint points this week – you can earn free Sale-A-Bration goodies AND get to your Peppermint Reward gift TWICE as fast.  Winner winner!!

Finn has a very hard life.

I make him help me with all the chores.

Here he is helping me roll the laundry cart down the hall.

Dusting…

Vacuuming…

Scrubbing the toilet…

See a trend?? 😉
