Stampin’ Up! Cauldron Trick or Treat for Halloween

Mornin’, y’all!  Happy Hawwmp Day!!  I hope you had fun with the 30th Birthday sale yesterday.  It was a good ‘un, huh?

My Ordering Bonus is still going on – so there’s time to gather up some supplies to help with the upcoming Holiday season!  Read on down for the all the details and get in on it before it goes away on the 28th!

I thought it made sense to do another – maybe the last one? – Halloween card, since it’s right around the corner.  I used some fun Toil & Trouble DSP and images from the Cauldron Bubble and Trick or Tweet stamp sets (love this cute set!).  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Happiness Surrounds Your Day!

Happy weekend, y’all!  Hope you’ve got something fun planned.

I have a plane flight planned.  Which – is NOT fun.  Not in any way that you slice it.  Tomorrow’ll be a 12 hour day to get back to Atlanta.  Bleh bleh bleh.  But we’ve had a great visit and gotten done all the things we needed to do while I was here.  So – bonus!

But – expectation management:  I will NOT be doing a Facebook live tomorrow – so sorry!  I don’t even land in Atlanta until a little after 5, so…just can’t do it, y’all!  I’ll be back next weekend, I promise!!

Let’s not think about that unpleasantness right now, though, shall we?  Instead, let’s take a look at a card that comes from the second stamp set in the upcoming Snowflake Showcase (available 1 Nov – 30 Nov 18).  This is the Happiness Surrounds stamp set and…it gives a completely different look from the Snow Is Glistening set I used yesterday.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Just a Note to Wish You Well

Good morning, y’all!  Hope your weekend is going swimmingly!

WE will not be swimming – cuz of how it’s colder than a well-digger’s lunch bucket here (that’s REALLY cold in case you’re unfamiliar with the analogy!).

So – I’ve come to the sad realization that I just don’t have enough internet speed/bandwidth here to do a FB Live – so…we’re going to have to skip that for today.  I’ll try to be back next week, though!

I made a simple little card using the Wishing You Well stamp set and some pumpkins from the Toil & Trouble DSP.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Alpine Adventure in Plaid!

Good Saturday, y’all!  We’re waiting for another round of snow for the weekend and then looking for beautiful Colorado days all next week.  Whoo-hoo!

My friend from…forever?…is coming up on Monday and spending the night with us.  I met Sally when we were Girl Scout riding camp counselors (she was Bak and I was Pegasus and we still call each other those camp names!) in the Colorado mountains when we were in college.  We very very quickly became the best the best of friends.  No matter how long we’re apart – when we get together, it’s like there’s been no time passing at all.  Y’all have friends like that I hope! 🙂

A few (maybe…20?) years ago, we’d have had a “sleepover” – complete with roasted marshmallows (even if we had to roast them over an electric stove.  Yes – that’s doable!), multiple movies (like…Man From Snowy River and Star Trek), and we’d have stayed up most of the night.

These days?  I’ll have a blog post to do for Tuesday and she’s got an online meeting she has to do for her work!  Oh – and we’ll crash by 9, I have no doubt.

We’re not quite as spry as we used to be, huh? 😉

But – we’ll have a good time, there’s definitely no doubt about that! 🙂

My card for today uses a new (to me) set from the 2018 Holiday Catalog called Alpine Adventure!  I put it over some blue plaid that I created with the Buffalo Check Background.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Paper Pumpkin Special and Snowflake Showcase Sneak Peek

Good morning, y’all!  Happy Hawwmp Day!

I made it safely to Colorado – even with the thick ice-fog (yes, that’s a thing and I feel certain that’s what it was.  Regular ole fog couldn’t possibly have been that thick.  Do not try to change my mind on this!) between the airport and my Mom’s house up in the mountains!  But – I did it and I’m here, so…yeah!! 🙂

Now – I was reminded today that I’d maybe sorta buried the lead about the Paper Pumpkin Flash Sale – and for that I apologize!  So…since getting your first month’s kit for just $5 is kind of a big deal-y-o….I’m bumping it up!


ENDS today!

Stampin’ Up! Wishing You Many Blessings for the Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Good mornin’, y’all – welcome to another edition of Amy’s Inkin’ Krew team blog hop!  Each month we make projects centered around a theme – and this month it’s all about Giving Thanks!  We can interpret that any way we want – so…be sure to check and see everyone’s projects – we’ve got a bunch of talented ladies hopping with us this month!

I saw a card a while back by Sue Mohr that created a wreath using punched and die cut leaves.  So, for today’s project, I decided to do one of my own.  I used the wreath from the Wishing You Well stamp set and added leaves created with the Leaf Punch and the Painted Harvest stamp set.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Buffalo Checked Video Sneak Peek

Hey y’all!  Hope your weekend is going well.  We got the car taken care of and…test drove the new Odyssey!  Looks like Honda has bumped their navigation technology into this century so….they may keep my business when it comes time for a new ride.  I LOVE my van.  EVERYthing about it.  EXCEPT the navigation/technology – it’s like….Pong vs my MacBook!  Know what I mean!?

Tomorrow’s a big day – lots of things ending (Bonus Days coupon redemption; Timeless Tidings Project Kit orderability…).  And – a couple of things coming (Stamparatus accessories…).  Just sayin’ – 1 Oct is huge!


I had so much fun yesterday making plaid with the Buffalo Check background stamp that I thought it might be fun for us to play a little on our live video this evening over on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page.  Whatcha think?  Up for a Buffalo-Checked Plaid-A-Pa-Looza?!?  Take a sneaky peek!

Stampin’ Up! Pleasant Pheasants on Buffalo Plaid

Good morning, my peeps!  Happy weekend!  Hope you have something fun planned.  We have Oil Change planned.  Bleh.

Did the title of the post take you a-back?  It’s Buffalo CHECK, Mary – not PLAID!

Well – but it CAN be plaid!  And it can be a plaid background for the lovely Pleasant Pheasants stamp set and a perfect Thanksgiving sentiment.  Take a look-see!
