Stampin’ Up! Christmas Whimsy Kit Peek!

Good morning and…let me be the first to wish you a very Happy HAWWWMP DAY!!!  Yes!  It’s Wednesday – and….THAT means that I only have two sleeps before I head to the airport to pick up Amy and Karen and then head up to the north GA mountains for our Inkin’ Krew Retreat!  I am so excited to see everyone – and I’ve got a couple of ladies who are in my Crittters-N-Creatin’ Krew Team that I’ve never met in person!  Plenty of time on Zoom – but…this’ll be the first time we’re in the same spot!  It’s going to be a blast!  I’ll share pics as I’m able thru the weekend!

Stampin’ Up! recently released a brand new All-Inclusive Kit called Christmas Whimsy.  I ordered it first jump out the gate and when it came….I dove in!  Remember – this is the one I think looks like it come straight outta Who-Ville!!

When I opened it up I found everything – and I do mean….EVERYTHING!…I needed to make eight fun Christmas cards!

THAT is the neat and tidy image from Stampin’ Up!  Here’s my hot mess!

Great job, Mare! 🤦‍♀️

But – I popped all the die cut pieces, folded the two designs of card bases and opened up the instructions.  I decided that at least for this first one, I’d do them exactly as the instructions said.

The instruction sheet is cool – they used pictures to let you know what to do and in what order – and (unlike some picture directions – you know the ones I mean!) – THESE actually WORK!

I mean – they even tell you how many stars or snowflakes to use and where to put the Dimensionals! 👍👍👍

I used the enclosed Night of Navy Ink Spot and the exclusive stamp set to stamp snowflakes and stars on the card bases – and stamp the sentiments.  This is where I DID depart a little – I’m not a huge “Season’s Greetings”  fan so I did them all with Merry Christmas.  But…you can do whichever you prefer – they both fit on the labels perfectly (thanks, Stampin’ Up!).

 

There’s a roll of Gold Trim to use on each design – love the tag “tied” on (in truth it’s got a little Glue Dot and the tag itself is popped on with a couple of dimensionals!).   And there are pretty blue foil snowflakes and stars adhesive-backed sequins to add, too!

The second design also gets a little gold foil star “sticker” added – only hard part here is making sure to get the ladder onto the card front straight so that it doesn’t look like someone is fixin’ to end up in the ER!

There’s even an “inside” sentiment that I used – and added some Night of Navy stamped stars.

I guess Stampin’ Up! has heard me say #nonekkidenvelopes cuz they included some beautiful envelopes with Gold Foil accents.

But…I added some stars to the front, too.  Cuz….I could! 😉

Et Voila!  In the blink of an eye I had eight fun full-sized cards – with insides stamped and ready – and decorated envelopes – all ready to get signed, stamped and mailed!  No cutting (except for the Gold Trim!) required – and the easy instructions make this a PERFECT project for new stampers or kids or….pretty much anyone who needs really cute Christmas cards!  It would be a GREAT activity to do together with family and friends – order a few kits and get to creating! 🙂

I hope you like!

And – this isn’t the ONLY kit that we’ve got available right now!  Check them all out – we’ve got stamping kits and even NON-Stamping kits for you to choose from.  Stop by the online store Kits Collection to pick up your kits!  Don’t forget that the kits are only available while supplies last, so order quick to make sure that you get yours…and pick up some free Sale-a-bration goodies if your order reaches $50!

Stampin’ Up! Daisy Garden Through it Together In Color!

Back home!  Pretty sure it’s Sunday.  Maybe??  Yep – jet lagged as all get out and I keep looking for the ocean outside my windows.

You MAY be surprised to learn that no matter WHICH window I look out – there is NO ocean.  At all.

Also?  No lazy river.  No gorgeous mountains.  Nope.  Just my pond! 🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️

Well – there are advantages to being home – like my fur-kid and my ponies!  All who were as happy to see me as I was to see them!

Now – my card today is actually…FIVE cards!  All the same design using the Daisy Garden background stamp set and the Through It Together stamp set.  I did one in all five 2021-2023 In Colors.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Hand-Penned Flowers Memories & More Sneak Peek!

Happy Happy Hawwwmp Day!  We’re inching closer to the weekend – closer to the end of the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog AND closer and closer to the NEW 2021-2022 Annual Catalog going live!  Whoo-hoo!! While that’s exciting – be sure to check the Last Chance section in the Online Store – don’t miss out on your favorite retiring goodies! 🙂

Today is all about the new catalog!  I was finally able to pick up the Hand-Penned Memories & More Cards & Envelopes, to go with the Hand-Penned Memories & More Card Pack that I already had.  I added some goodness from the new Hand-Penned Petals stamp set.  Take a look-see:

The layout was loosely inspired by the sketch over at As You See It.

I started with one of the gorgeous – already-decorated-for-you! – Hand-Penned Memories & More Cards & Envelopes.  Then I selected a panel from the Hand-Penned Memories & More Card Pack.  I cut that down some and matted it on Highland Heather using Liquid Glue.

The Memories & More Card Packs include multiple different “stickers” you can use to decorate your cards and projects.  I selected one of the white ones and stamped the Hand-Penned Petals sentiment in Highland Heather.

I tied a small bow from a piece of Pool Party 3/8″ Sheer Ribbon and adhered it to the card front with a Glue Dot.

I used a few double-stacked Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop the sentiment over the top of the bow.

To finish off, I added a Mint Macaron Genial Gem and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped the pretty floral from Hand-Penned in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the corner of a Basic White panel.  I stamped the large flower once in stamped-off-once Highland Heather.  Then I turned the stamp slightly and stamped it again with full strength Highland Heather.  I stamped the smaller flower once in stamped-off-once Highland Heather.  I added leaves using the stamps in the set, in Mint Macaron.  Then I stuck on another of the Genial Gems, just cuz I could!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Highland Heather mat and into the Hand-Penned Memories & More Card, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

For the front of the Hand-Penned Memories & More Envelope – I stamped the Hand-Penned Petals floral in Tuxedo Black…

…and I didn’t have to do a thing to the pre-decorated envelope flap!

Et Voila!  Well, y’all – I’ll tell you what.  The Hand-Penned Memories & More goodies – be it the Card Pack or the Cards & Envelopes – are simply stunning!  So gorgeous and so perfect to pair with the Hand-Penned Petals stamp set.  But they can also be used all by themselves – there are even sentiments on many of the cards in the pack!

I hope you like!  No…I hope you LOVE it as much as I do! 🙂

The man has been spending more time on the sofa with me in the evening.

Not sure if he’s missing Katy – or…just taking advantage of the fact that the sofa is more available to him.

I suppose it could be that he really really loves me…

Or maybe….

…hmmm.  Never mind.

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:
