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!

GASP!

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:

This card layout is a technique that I really enjoy using – sort of Double-Time stamping.  And it’s really perfect for the Stampartus.  Or – perhaps I should say the Stamparatus is perfect for this technique! 🙂

I started with a plain Whisper White panel and a Whisper White oval cut with an Ovals Layering Framelits die.  I used a tiny little smear of Liquid Glue to temporarily adhere the oval onto the panel and placed it in my Stamparatus.

I put the Noel stamp from the Joy & Noel set onto the Stamparatus plate and inked it with Stazon Jet Black Ink, then stamped the panel (with the oval in place).  I did that a couple of times, pressing down on the stamp to be sure I had a good image.

Once the ink had dried, I used my new Real Red and Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends to color the image.

I picked up the oval and used Liquid Glue to adhere it to a Basic Black oval mat, then I popped it all back in place with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I used more Liquid Glue to adhere the whole panel to a Basic Black mat.

The final touch was the addition of some gold Metallic Pearls and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a sentiment from the Timeless Tidings stamp set – remember that one from the Project Kit I shared the other day? – in Stazon Jet Black Ink to a Whisper White panel.  I used the holly image from the same set and added it twice in Stazon, then colored it in Shaded Spruce and Real Red with the Blends.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Basic Black mat and into my Real Red card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

I repeated the Timeless Tidings holly on the front of my Whisper White Medium Envelope…

…and used a piece of Under the Mistletoe DSP (from the Annual Catalog) on the envelope flap – coloring the berries in the design with my Real Red Blend!

Et Voila!  This is a stamp set that caught my eye first off in the new catalog, so it was high on the list of sets that “made the cut” to come to me in CA.  And boy am I glad it did – I love it!!  And that Timeless Tidings set is just as useful and versatile as I thought it would be!!  Hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Shimmery Abstract Garden Impressions for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

 

Happy Thursday, y’all – and welcome to another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!! Today’s a color challenge, and I hope you’ll check out everyone’s projects when you’re done here!

I pulled out a favorite from the Annual Catalog – the Abstract Impressions stamp set and bundled Springtime Impressions Thinlits, and then added a few goodies from the 2018 Holiday Catalog.  Take a look-see:

Our color challenge this week was perfect for the Garden Impressions DSP.

…and I used the sketch from the FabFriday challenge as inspiration for my layout.

I started with a piece of Calypso Coral design paper from the Garden Impressions DSP and sponged it all over with new Frost White Shimmer Paint.  The Shimmer Paint is coming in the 2018 Holiday Catalog and will be available in Bright Copper, Champagne Mist, Frost White and Vegas Gold!  Whoo-hooo!!

With the DSP dry, I matted it on Shaded Spruce for the card front – but not before punching three Sprig Punch leaves (available on 5 Sept).  I sponged the leaves with Frost White Shimmer Paint, too!

For the center, I snipped a length of new Chicken Wire Elements (5 Sept) into a strip and adhered it with a little Liquid Glue.  Then I added the leaves.

I wound some new 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim around a couple times with Glue Dots.

For the art, I inked the flowers image from Abstract Impressions in Melon Mambo, stamped it off once, then stamped a piece of Whisper White card stock.  I used the accent flower stamp, in full-strength Melon Mambo next.  Finally, I stamped some stems in Shaded Spruce.  Then I cut the image with an oval Stitched Shapes Framelits die and popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut the Springtime Impressions butterfly from another Garden Impressions DSP design, sponged it with Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint and stuck it on with some Liquid Glue.

I stamped the Abstract Impressions sentiment in Shaded Spruce on a Vellum card stock strip and snipped banner ends.  Then I used a Glue Dot under the left end to adhere it to the card.  I tied a little 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim bow and added it with a little Liquid Glue.  Finally, I added some Pearl Basic Jewels and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added another Abstract Impressions sentiment in Shaded Spruce to a Whisper White panel.  Then I stamped another set of flowers at the bottom.

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another Abstract Impressions flower on the front…

…and more of the Garden Impressions DSP – that I’d sponged with Frost White Shimmer Paint – on the envelope flap.

Et Voila! Love this Abstract Impressions bundle – I have since it first came out in the Annual Catalog.  And the addition of some pretty Shimmer Paint – which you’ll be able to get your hands on soon! – really bumps the wow factor on the already-gorgeous Garden Impressions DSP!  I hope you like!

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.
