Stampin’ Up! Happy Birthday America!

Well – I’m tickled to say Good Morning to y’all on the Birthday of our great nation!

And – even more tickled to be saying it on a DAY OFF!!! Whoo-hoo!!  

Yes – we worked like fools and now have today off!  

I hope you have some fun plans – I’m going to a friend’s this afternoon.  Maybe.  If I can move myself to get out of my pajamas.  Want to go.  Want to lie in bed.  Go…Lie in bed…Go…

We’ll see what I decide!

In the meantime, I made a Happy Birthday America card – using the Brushstrokes background stamp.  A little Touches of Texture.  The Happy Birthday Thinlits.  A dab from the Ribbon of Courage – and a sentiment I built with the Brushwork Alphabet set.  Take a look-see:

I played along with a couple of challenges on this one.  Then first is the Fusion Challenge – my Americana stripes and the script-y fonts are from the inspiration photo.

And then I made some “fireworks” to go along with the Cupcake Inspirations challenge!

So.  To start, I made my Americana striped card front.  On a piece of Whisper White card stock, I stamped the Brushstrokes background image in Dapper Denim and Cherry Cobbler.  I used my Stampin’ Write Markers to color the stamp directly, alternating stripes.   I SNAILd the panel to a Soft Suede mat (a bit of a nod to the frame in the inspiration photo).

The middle layer is another piece of Whisper White. Using the image in the Touches of Texture stamp set, I stamped it a few times in Versamark on the panel, and sprinkled it with Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  After I heated those up, I let them cool and then repeated the process a few more times with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder.

That panel is also matted on Soft Suede.  I wrapped a piece of new Dapper Denim 3/8″ Striped Grosgrain Ribbon around the matted panel, securing it in the back with scotch tape, and popped it over the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

My sentiment is from the Happy Birthday Thinlits.  Man – I just love this die!  I cut it out 4 times – twice in Basic Black and twice in Cherry Cobbler.  Then I adhered them all together in a stack with Liquid Glue.  A little persnickety – but it gives the sentiment super cool depth – that 4th layer is the kicker.  And a heckuva lot easier then cutting oodles of pieces of Stampin’ Dimensionals!

I adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue and the front was done!

On the inside – I started with another panel of Whisper White card stock.  Using the pretty Brushworks Alphabet stamp set, I stamped the word “America” in Dapper Denim.  Then I cut a tiny yellow ribbon from a piece of Daffodil Delight card stock, using one of the fun little dies in the new Support Ribbon Framelits, and adhered it with a dab of Liquid Glue.  Finally, I added a gold Metallic Enamel Shapes star.

I SNAILd the panel to a Soft Suede mat and into my Thick Whisper White card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

On the front of my Whisper White Medium Envelope, I stamped the solid ribbon from the Ribbon of Courage stamp set in Daffodil Delight and added another Gold star.  Then I used the Brushwork Alphabet set again, in Dapper Denim…

…and I masked off my envelope flap with sticky notes and repeated the Brushstrokes in Dapper Denim and Cherry Cobbler.

Et Voila!  Happy Birthday, America!  And we’re waiting for all the men and women to come home!  Hope you like.

Stampin’ Up! One Big Meaning And Wood Words Patriotic Thank You!

Good morning!  Welcome back to work – at least it’s only a four day work week!  But there’s a lot going on Stampin’ Up!-wise in that four days!  Check it out:

  • My Stamps-N-Lingers 2017-2019 In Colors Bundle Sale ends tomorrow afternoon.
  • The Eastern Palace Bundles sale (Starter or Premium) ends tomorrow afternoon!
  • Your chance to buy an Annual Catalog Share ends tonight!
  • You still an opportunity to get your name into the Jul-Dec Online Host Club!
  • And – OBTW – the new Annual Catalog goes LIVE at 3pm Mountain Time on Thursday!!

Wheew!!  That’s a lotta stuff to pack into a few short days, huh??  There’s a lot of detail and information down below, so be sure to check it all out and take advantage of some great deals happening this week!

Now – on to the card for today.  I promised that I’d share the details and how-to’s on the Memorial Day thank you card that I gave you a glimpse of on yesterday’s post.  It uses the One Great Meaning stamp set, as well as the Wood Words stamp set and coordinating Wood Textures DSP Stack (available Thursday!).  Take a reminder look-see:

I started with a piece of dark wood paper from the Wood Textures DSP Stack and matted it on Cajun Craze card stock.  The center layer, with the sentiment, is another piece of the Wood Textures paper, also matted on Cajun Craze.

To make my sentiment, I first inked the little star cluster image from the Wood Words stamp set in Versamark and stamped it in the corner of the panel.  Then I sprinkled it with Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed it.

I stamped the very appropriate sentiment from One Big Meaning in Cajun Craze in the middle of the panel, then SNAILd it to its Cajun Craze mat and onto the card front.

I wrapped a piece of the new 1/4″ Copper Trim around the card front, securing it in the back with scotch tape.

The stars are from an image in the Wood Words stamp set.  I stamped it once in Versamark and heat embossed it in Copper.  The other two, I stamped in Dapper Denim and Cajun Craze – then sprinkled them with Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heated them up.  This is a cool way to emboss in any color – just be sure to have a moist ink pad, have your embossing powder ready to go and move a little quickly – and the powder will stick just fine.

I fussy cut the stars and ran my Stylus on the back of each arm of all three stars to make them more dimensional.  Then I adhered each star with a Stampin’ Dimensional.  To finish it all off, I adhered a bow from the 1/4″ Copper Trim with a Glue Dot.

On the inside, I repeated the Copper embossing of the Wood Words cluster of stars in the top corner of a Whisper White panel.  I also added a Dapper Denim and Cajun Craze larger star.

I SNAILd the panel to a Cajun Craze 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 Dapper Denim and Cajun Craze star on the front…

 

...and some more of the dark wood paper from the Wood Textures DSP Stack on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I love the Americana vintage feel of this patriotic card, don’t you?  One Big Meaning is a wonderful stamp set filled with sentiments to express your gratitude.  And the new Wood Words stamp set goes perfectly with the Wood Textures DSP!  One Big Meaning is available now, and the Wood Words goodies are both going to be available on Thursday afternoon!!  Hope you like and already have these on your wish list!

Finn-Fan Fix…

On Memorial Day, we went over to our friend’s house for dinner.

That’s where Finn’s sister, Scout, lives.

He was sooooo excited to see her!!

His wiggler wiggled.

His barker barked!

His lips grinned.

His boigers boinged!

Finally, they were able to settle down enough for a family portrait.

The little brother has outgrown his older sister, hasn’t he?

Aren’t they pretty pair!?

A Stamps-N-Lingers 2017-2019 In Color Bundle Flash Sale!

Happy Memorial Day, y’all!  As you enjoy your picnics and family time today – please take a moment to think of our men and women who are (or have!) given of themselves to protect this great nation.  As Billy Ray Cyrus said – All Gave Some.  Some…Gave All.  Keep them all in your prayers of gratitude today and everyday!

Finn-Fan Fix…

Finn-winn is closing in on getting his Canine Good Citizen certificate!  

On Sunday – our instructor put us thru one of the low-level obedience tests.  

Finn did pretty darned good.

His mom – well, there were a few missteps.

Our instructor has a pretty thick German accent, okay?  It could happen to you, too!

But – he did good.  And – he kind of knows it.

That’s the relaxed pose of someone who knows they’re all that and a whole entire case of chips!

He also watches with feigned interest while the other dogs attempt to impress the teacher.

You know.  And I know.  And he knows.  And the other dogs know.

He’s the man.

Stampin’ Up! Swirly Celebration!

Good morning, good morning!  As we head into this three-day weekend to celebrate the birth of our nation, I figured I’d share a quick and easy, patriotic-themed card with you.  And since I know you’re getting ready to head out of town, or get to the grocery store to buy ingredients for the cook-out on Monday…I’ll get right to it! 🙂

I used the Swirly Scribbles Framelits and some silvery stars and the Thoughtful Banners bundle – along with the Lucky Stars TIEF.   Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Touches of Texture For the 4th of July!

Okay – so….were you guys laughing at me yesterday?  Behind my back?  Did you think “oh, that woman is so goofy”?

Why didn’t any of you tell me that yesterday wasn’t HAWMP day at all?!?  It was TUESDAY!! 😦

As I got ready to write this post I read the morning’s post again – I realized I was typing the post on Tuesday evening, which means that it couldn’t possibly be hawmp day!  Sheesh – I must be losing my head!  😉

Today (the actual HAWMP day!), I made a card with one of the cooler new stamp sets – Touches of Texture.  Now, you might think that – what with Gorgeous Grunge and Timeless Textures, we might have enough textural stamp sets.  But – this one is different entirely.  Well, maybe not entirely, but it’s definitely different enough that it’s a great tool to have in your stash.  So, I combined it with Number of Years and the Large Number Framelits and this is what I came up with!  Take a look-see:

Now, I played along with two challenges on this one.  The first is a color challenge and it’s what herded me towards a 4th of July card.  Hand Stamped Sentiments Color Challenge #242: Continue reading

Stampin’ Up! One Big Meaning Thanks Veteran’s Today!

Happy Veteran’s Day – to those who are currently serving – I thank you.  From the bottom of my heart.  Your selfless dedication and willingness to pay the ultimate price so that we may live in peace in our beautiful land is a blessing to us all.  I pray for your safety and your swift return home!  To the men and women who served and are now pursuing lives in the private world – I salute you!  And Thank You.  You gave up years of your lives with your families and friends, to protect us.  We owe you everything!

To that end, today’s share is a blatantly patriotic, red white and blue thank you card.  Since it features a Festive Flower, I suspect it would be more suitable to Soldiers/Airmen/Sailors/Marines of the female variety, but – there’s a lot of those folks these days. 🙂  I used the festive Flower Punch and the One Big Meaning stamp set – filled with all sorts of great Thank You sentiments.  And some glitter.  Okay – maybe kind of a lot!

Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Color Me Irresistible and Tin of Cards say a Vintage Patriotic Thank You!

Well, this morning a very very cool thing happened to me.  Possibly the coolest thing that’s happened to me in….well, a really long time!

After I got done with the horses this morning, Wayne and I were sitting on the porch behind the barn, enjoying the 2.3 minutes that remained before the heat cranked up from yucky to miserable.  He was just sitting drinking his coffee and I was buried in my phone looking for a recipe.  All of a sudden he says – kind of quiet-like “Mare (that’s what he calls me – I assume it’s a shortening of my name and not a comparison of my hindquarters to those of my ponies…)”  “Mare, there’a a hummingbird”.  I look up and there, indeed, was a hummingbird!  About 2 feet in front of my face, hovering there with his little wings going so fast they were a complete blur.  He looked right at me for about 20 seconds and then he was gone.  I’m sure the feeders are filled and fresh, so…not sure what he was after, but – I’m so very glad he stopped by for a chat! It. Was. Way. Too. Cool!!

He may have been telling me thanks for the feeders – I’ve got two that I keep going this time of year.  I’ve even started making nectar – after having read that the commercial stuff is bad for them.  Or perhaps he’s a teenager-hummer and he was saying “hey lady! What’s with the “health” food?!? We LIKE the commercial nectar with the chemicals and the preservatives and the Red Dye #2!!  Bring back the junk food!” 😉  I don’t know.  I’m just going to treasure the moment!
