Stampin’ Up! Dragonfly Dandy Garden Memories

Happy Tuesday!  Tuesday is sort of a flyover day, right?  Neither the start of the workweek (bleh) – not HAWWWWMP DAY, Mike – and for sure not the END of the workweek (whoo-hoo!) – it’s just sort of a…filler.  It’s cousin, Thursday, has similar identity issues, right?

Today is, however, National Puppy Day!  So…it’s got that going for it!! 😉

My card today has nothing to do with Tuesday – or puppies, for that matter – it’s just a quick and easy card using the truly cool Dandy Garden Memories & More Card Pack, with a matching Dandy Garden Envelope and…a little help from the coordinating Dragonfly Garden Bundle.  Take a look-see:

Thanks to the amazing Dandy Garden Memories & More Card Pack, this one is super easy!

I pulled one of the large cards from the pack and trimmed it down a smidge to accomodate a Bumble Bee mat for the card front.

I wrapped some Mossy Meadow 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim twice around the matted panel – securing it in the back with Glue Dots.

On a piece of Basic White, I stamped the Dragonfly Garden sentiment in Blackberry Bliss and cut it with a Tasteful Labels die.  I used the same die to cut a Bumblebee mat, then used Liquid Glue to adhere the two die cuts together.

I popped the matted sentiment over the top of the braided trim with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Then I tied a simple bow from the Mossy Meadow trim and adhered it with a Glue Dot.

I punched some tiny Blackberry Bliss dragonflies using the Dragonflies Punch (bundled with the Dragonfly Garden set) and adhered them with Liquid Glue – and that was it for the card front!

On the inside, I stamped a second Dragonfly Garden sentiment in Blackberry Bliss on a Basic White panel and added some of the pretty wildflowers in Bumble Bee.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Bumble Bee mat and into my Early Espresso card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

I did absolutely nothing to the already-perfectly-decorated Dandy Garden Memories & More Cards & Envelopes envelope!

Et Voila!  It took me a while to warm up to Memories & More Card Packs (I thought they were ONLY good for scrapbooking – but I was totally wrong!) but…this Dandy Garden Memories & More Card Pack is gorgeous!  And has SO many cool elements that you can use and use and use to create your card projects.  Or…even scrapbook pages!! 😉  And the Dragonfly Garden Bundle – well – it’s for sure one I hope makes it into the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog!!

I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Corner Bouquet Heal Your Heart Sneak Peek Sympathy

Good Monday-morning, y’all!  Today is the anniversary of Pearl Harbor – a day when our country changed for an entire generation.  Take a moment to reflect on what that day meant to – our relatives or…us, depending on your age.  While I wasn’t around then, as I sat watching the attacks on 9/11 – I remember reflecting that that day was OUR Pearl Harbor.  Yet another day that changed our country forever.

My card for today is…oddly appropriate, I think.  It was unintentional but…nonetheless!  It’s a card that I made – and shared – with our Amy’s Inkin Krew Team at our quarterly “in person” meeting yesterday!

I used two stamp sets that will be available to you – for FREE! – starting on 5 Jan 2021.  That’s right – FREE.  As a part of Sale-A-Bration, the Heal Your Heart and Corner Bouquet stamp sets are both “Level 1” gifts – meaning free with a $50 purchase (before shipping and tax).  I used these sets with yet another Sale-A-Bration Level 1 offering – the Oh So Ombre 6″ x 6″ DSP.  Take a look-see:

With the help of the Stamparatus – this is a quick and easy card to make!

I started with a piece of Rococo Rose paper from the Oh So Ombre 6″ x 6″ DSP that I placed into my Stamparatus.

I placed the smaller image from Corner Bouquet in the bottom left corner of the panel and picked it up with the Stamparatus acrylic plate.  I inked it up and stamped the image in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.

Then I turned the panel 180 degrees – and repeated the stamping.

 

I also used the Stamparatus and Tuxedo Black to ink the sentiment from Heal Your Heart.

I used the largest rectangle die in the Stitched So Sweetly die set to cut the middle out of the panel.

I adhered the “frame” to my Basic Black mat with Liquid Glue.  Then, I turned the die cut piece 180 degrees and popped it into the negative space with Stampin; Dimensionals.  By turning the panel – the “ombre” coloring is reversed to create a nice effect, don’t you think?

I added three Rococo Rose Pastel Pearls (also coming new in the Jan – Jun 2021 Mini Catalog on 5 Jan!) and the card front was done.

On the inside, I used the Stamparatus again to add the Corner Bouquet image a single time in Tuxedo Black on a Whisper White panel.

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got the corner image on the front…

…and a little more of the Oh So Ombre DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I love how this one turned out – the silhouette images in Corner Bouquet are gorgeous – and with two sizes – they’ll work perfectly on your projects!

When you need a sympathy, thank you or “I’m here for you” sentiment – look no further than Healing Hugs!  Gorgeous fonts – and perfect phrases!

Finally – the beautiful Oh So Ombre 6″ x 6″ DSP comes Bermuda Bay, Rococo Rose, Granny Apple Green and Blackberry Bliss with a patterned or solid design.

Think of this card – maybe using “Thank You” as the sentiment.  You could do all four colors with matching envelopes.  Pretty perfect little set of cards to keep – or give as a gift!  And – ALL THREE of these products will be FREE with your purchases in Sale-A-Bration!  Whoo-hoo!

I hope you like!

I’ve got an Online Host Club starting on 1 January (just in time for the new catalog and Sale-A-Bration!) and I’ve got openings.  Whoo-hoo!!!

What is an Online Host Club?  Glad you asked!An Online Host Club lets you get some of the benefits of being a host – without doing any of the WORK of being a host!  And – it helps you build your crafting tool chest a little at a time.  While earning FREE goodies!

A club consists of three folks doing two consecutive three-month terms.   Each person commits to buying $50 before shipping and tax each month.

Here’s how it shakes out…this is just an example!  As you can see, each member gets to host TWICE during the six months!!

At the end of the club, I let each member select a stamp set up to $25 that I send to them for free.

What are the other bennies of a Host Club?

  • At least a $150.00 Workshop order during EACH of your host months!
  • Which means you’ll have at least $15.00 of Stampin’ Rewards dollars to spend on the exclusive Host Stamp Sets, or any other current Stampin’ Up! product during your host months.  Stampin’ Rewards are Stampin’ Up!-speak for “free money”!
  • You’ll earn DOUBLE PEPPERMINTS on your Host Club Orders.  Each $50 order earns 4 reward points, a $75 order earns you 6 reward points, etc. You’ll earn at least 24 reward points during your membership, meaning you’ll automatically earn at least ONE $40 Peppermint rewards gift!  (Remember – when you gather up 16 Peppermints, you get to select a free reward gift valued up to $40!).  You can get more info about my Punkin’ Heads Customer Rewards Program right here.
  • During Sale-a-Bration – each of your host club orders will earn you AT LEAST one Level 1 ($50 level) Sale-A-Bration reward!
  • You’ll receive a FREE monthly tutorial with 4-5 projects and access to all previous tutorials for the duration of the club. Right now, there are over FIFTY tutorials available only to Online Host Club members.  That’s around TWO HUNDRED FIFTY not-seen-on-our-blogs projects for you to use as inspiration (and they ALL have all the card cuts and instructions!)
  • Access to my Weekly Zoom The Craftroom online Zoom Party – where you can come craft and chat with me and other customers! YEP – THIS IS NEW!!
  • FREE catalogs during your membership term
  • FREE shipping in your TWO Host Months
  • A FREE STAMP SET of your choice valued up to $25 at the end of each “term”, any current set (excluding host sets)!
  • At the end of the full 6 months, you’ll get first dibs at signing up for the next 6 month term!

When you join the club – you’ll commit to the full six months – in two consecutive three-month increments.   The launch of a new catalog and Sale-A-Bration is ALWAYS a great time to join a club!

Don’t delay – there are limited spaces available!

If you want to join us or if you have ANY questions about how it would work…please drop me a note at stamps-n-lingers@comcast.net!

Finn Fan Fix 

 Finn and I did a few selfies this morning.

It is VERY apparent that we’re not all that good at selfies! 😉

If I WANTED to take a screenshot of my phone – I couldn’t.  Since I did NOT want to – I got TWO!

Finn thinks I’ve gone all goofy!

 

He could be rigth!

Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Pines and For Unto Us CAS Christmas Cards

Good morning, all – and Happy Happy HAWWWMP Day!  The week is flying by, isn’t it?  I had to look at my watch when I started this post last night to see what day it was.  I was shocked to realize it was already Tuesday.  Yikes!

I’ve been getting some queries about ideas for easy to make Christmas cards – that are suitable for making multiples!  I made one a couple weeks back using the Curvy Christmas stamp set – you can see it here.  But – it got me to thinking, so I decided to do a riff on that one – with one of my favorite stamp sets – the Peaceful Boughs set.  I added a sentiment for the inside from For Unto Us and went back to the gorgeous Gold Cards & Envelopes, just like the first card.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Dandy Garden Memories & More Card Pack Sneak Peek!

Good morning and HAPPY HAWWMP DAY!

Also?  Happy Thanksgiving Day-eve. 🙂  I wish I could tell you we’re looking forward to dinner with our friends tomorrow – but…I decided on Tuesday that the risk-reward analysis just didn’t work out in favor of getting together in person. 🙁  I think we need to be cautious for a little while longer – and hope that things are a little less scary at Christmas.  We’re still going to share our sides – we’ll meet and have a handoff somewhere in full hazmat or something….  And may try to Zoom.

Danged COVID! 🙁

Sigh….

Well.  With all that – I decided a quick and fun and EASY card was in order – and I figured you might like a little sneak peek at the new Dandy Garden Memories & More Card Pack – with the matching (and GORGEOUS!!) Dandy Garden Memories & More Cards & Envelopes.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Tree Angle Joy & Cheer Christmas

Good morning and Happy Happy HAWWWWMP DAY!  Hope your week is going well – I’m in post away-from-home try-to-get-in-the-swing-of-things mode!  FINALLY got back on the treadmill on Tuesday.  Bleh – but…have I mentioned that I really like wearing clothes straight off the rack (from JJill if possible – like…when it’s on sale!!) and knowing with very little doubt that a medium will fit?? ROFL!

So…back to the careful-of-every-bite regime and….the dreadmill.

My card today is a clean and simple one that is quick to make for Christmas!  I used the sweet little Tree Angle stamp set – one of the flyover sets in the current mini catalog.  It coordinates with the Stitched Triangles Dies (part of The Right Triangle bundle in the Annual Catalog) – which is handy!  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Wishes & Wonder of the Season Memories & More Christmas Cards and a Special Offer!

Good morning.  I have a fun something-new for you today!!  You have to read on to find out what it is! 😉

First, though – I have a number for you:

52.

Do you know what that number represents?

How about if I said….7 weeks and 3 days?

No?  How about…that’s the USPS Deadline (18 Dec) – for mailing in the CONUS (ie: the US – but not to/from Hawaii/Alaska) for First Class mail to “guarantee” arrival by Christmas.

Which means – you might have just started to hyperventilate a smidge when you think about getting your Christmas cards done and in the mail!

Well – I’ve got a bit of a stress-reducing solution for you today!  And a chance to spend a few hours crafting with me!  Read on!

The Wonder of the Season Memories & More Card Pack – coupled with the Wonder of the Season Memories & More Cards & Envelopes – are the answer!  I used them – and a couple of sentiments and images from the Wishes & Wonder and Cherish the Season stamp sets to whip out a stack of gorgeous Christmas cards.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Curvy Christmas Sneak Peek with Video Tutorial to Make Quick Christmas Cards !

Well – it’s happened again, y’all!  Another week has gone by in a blink! Yikes!  I realized today that there’s like…two months until Christmas.  Okay – a little over that but…you know what I’m saying!  The Post Office is saying the shipping deadline for packages is 15 Dec for ground shipping.  And 18 December for greeting cards!  If the year keeps going as it has been – that’s like…tomorrow! 😉

If you were able to join me yesterday for my YouTube live, I appreciate you spending some time with me – if not, but you’d like to see the replay, here ’tis! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Hello Pumpkin Ideas And Other Paper Pumpkin News You Can Use!

Morning, y’all!  Happy Tuesday.  I’m not going to tell you about my Monday – the morning in particular – cuz…you’ll decide I’m cray cray and unfollow me!  Let’s just say that Monday started at 5:30 when I set off the alarm in the house even as I stared at the big sign that’s been on the door for three weeks that says “STOP – disarm alarm before opening door” and…it was for sure Monday all the rest of the day!  So…I am very happy that this is NOT Monday!

I thought I’d give you a peek at the latest Paper Pumpkin kit – since the deadline for signing up for the October Joy To The World kit is fast approaching!

The September kit – called Hello Pumpkin – was a Treat kit.  Everything you need to create 20 treat crackers – decorated for Fall, Thanksgiving or Halloween!

Like every Paper Pumpkin kit, it has an exclusive stamp set – the 11-stamp Hello Pumpkin set – and an ink Spot – this one is in Cajun Craze!

And – it also provided all the pieces and parts you’ll need for your treat crackers – including all sorts of cool die-cut flowers, vines, witch hats, pumpkins, doilies and sentiment labels!

Now – we live down a very long – and dark! – driveway.  And we have a gate at the end.  So….in the umpty-billion years we’ve lived here we’ve not had one single solitary trick-or-treater.  Not-a-one.  And parties aren’t really a thing for us.  If that sounds sort of like you – and treat crackers aren’t really up your alley – let me show you some alternate ideas!

These used one of the scalloped rectangle dies from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies to cut the centers out of the treat boxes to then adhere onto Whisper White Note Cards & Envelopes card bases.

The sentiments are stamped onto the die cut banners and adhered to the card front with Stampin’ Seal and the adhesives included in the kit!

A little die cut pumpkin from the kit finished the inside of each card, too.

It made 12 note cards – with plenty of leftovers to make even more!

Here are a couple more alternate project ideas from the clever minds of Stampin’ Up!

Now – just in case you do need Treat Crackers – this is a fun way to make a bunch!  Here’s the quick video showing you how to put them together as planned! 🙂
