Finn Fan Fix


This is a non-Finny Finn Fan Fix!

This is a seedling update!

So…I planted two BioDomes last week – veggies and flowers.

I placed the two BioDomes under the grow light.

16 hours on.  8 hours off.

And then – carefully peeeeered into the domes every day.

Every day….nothing.

Not surprising – a watched seed never grows.

Or…something like that! LOL

But then.  THEN!  Yesterday…..lookee lookee!!

See ’em?!? Plants!  Little plants sticking their little plant-heads up!

According to my careful planting chart – those are marigolds.  Which I’m growing to plant in and among my Ancho Magnifico Peppers and my tomatoes.

Happy dance happy dance!

See?  Even Finny is thrilled beyond measure!

Stampin’ Up! Parisian Beauty and Blossoms for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hey y’all – it’s Thursday, so it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!!  Today’s a color challenge – and I’m excited to see what everyone brings to the table!  I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop today!

When I saw the challenge, I just sort of fell on the Parisian Blossoms Specialty DSP – it just made sense.  Since I hadn’t used the Parisian Beauty stamp set, with its bundled Parisian Dies – I thought this would be a great time!  And so…take a look-see:


And here’s our color challenge!

Since I already had the colors set for me, I looked for a likely layout and found one in the Tuesday Morning Sketches challenge!

And the theme seemed to fit right in with the As you See It Challenge!

I started with some Pool Party paper from the beautiful Parisian Blossoms Specialty DSP and matted it on Pool Party card stock for the card front.

For the strip of script-y DSP, I used a Stitched Rectangle Die.  But – it wasn’t long enough so…I ran it part way thru my die cutting machine…not letting the second end cut the paper.

…then I turned the whole platform around and re-positioned the die – putting the other end at the length I needed.

And ran it back thru – only going half way again.

When finished, I had the perfect length strip – that I adhered to the card front with Liquid Glue.

My heart is actually one of the new Heart Doilies – turned over and then stamped several times in Pool Party with the scripty image from the Parisian Beauty stamp set.  Then I adhered that to the card front with Liquid Glue.  Note:  I am seeing that it looks blue in the pictures.  It’s not – it’s white!  🙁

My oval is a piece of Petal Pink Perennial Essence Vellum – cut with a Stitched Shapes Oval and then embossed in the new Parisian Flourish 3D embossing Folder.  I used some Glue Dots to adhere it to the card front.

I created the Eiffel Tower next.  With the detailed die in the Parisian Dies, I cut the shape 4 times.  Twice in Pool Party, once in Basic Gray cardstock and the last one from Champagne Foil.

I adhered the two Pool Party cuts together in a stack with Liquid Glue.  Then I added the Champagne die cut on top.  On the back of the stack, I stuck some Black Mini Dimensionals – then I popped the stack onto the Basic Gray die cut – offsetting it a little bit to create a shadow effect.

I adhered the tower to the card front with Liquid Glue.

For the sentiment, I first embossed more of the Petal Pink Perennial Vellum in the Parisian Flourish 3D Embossing Folder.  Then I used a rectangle from the Stitched So Sweetly Die set to cut a backer for my die cut sentiment.  Once again, it wasn’t the size I needed.  So…I cut the rectangle and then cut it AGAIN – adjusting the die to get down to the size I wanted!

I cut the sentiment – which is a die in the Parisian Dies set – three times in Pool Party and stacked them up with Liquid Glue.  Then I adhered the stack to my Vellum rectangle with Liquid Glue.  I put a few double-stacks of Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back of the rectangle – hiding them behind the sentiment – and adhered it over the Eiffel Tower.

I used a Glue Dot to adhere a small bow tied from Petal Pink 1/4″ Metallic-Edge Ribbon, added some Champagne Rhinestones and the card front was done.

On the inside, I added a second Parisian Beauty sentiment in Pool Party on a Whisper White panel.  Over top, in stamped-off-once Petal Pink, I added the script image and a few of the fluer-de-doo’s….then I finished with a Champagne Rhinestone.

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more stamped-off-once script and fluer-de-doo’s….I also added the “Tower stamp” image a few times – with the “cancelled” lines over them – up in the top left-hand corner.

…and a little more of the Parisian Blossoms Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  How gorgeous is this Parisian Blossoms bundle with it’s stunning detailed Parisian Dies??

I love how this card turned out – the stacked tower looks so cool!  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! All Dressed to Impress for The Paper Players

Good Sunday morning, y’all!  Hope you’re staying warm this weekend – we’re back into a winter-y cycle.  Cold enough for covers again.  Bleh.  But…no snow.  No “-” in front of the temperature so…there’s that! 🙂

Be sure to take advantage of my Weight-loss Milestone Ordering Special, okay?  It’s only around thru Tuesday so you need to get hopping!  Let my loss be your gain!

If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video, I sure appreciate you spending part of your weekend with me!  If not, but you’d like to watch the instant-ish replay, here ’tis!

The inspiration for this card set comes from this week’s Paper Players theme challenge and the Dressed To Impress bundle and gorgeous Best Dressed DSP was the perfect choice!  Take a look-see:

And here’s this week’s Paper Players challenge!  I hope you’ll join us and show us your projects! 🙂

Now – admittedly, the card holder isn’t particularly clean-and-simple!  THAT comes into play with the 6 notecards and envelopes tucked inside!! 🙂

The holder is easy to make – it’s cut from two pieces of the Best Dressed DSP for the “body” of the purse/tote.  Some Old Olive (Mossy Meadow in the video and picture below) cardstock makes up the ties and the pocket on the outside.

All of which have dies in the All Dressed Up Dies set!!

I put the tote together with Tear & Tape Adhesive – and used that as well to secure the handles to the bag.  I used some Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop the pocket on the outside of the bag – then “filled” it with a bottle of perfume fussy cut from one of the DSP designs, and a stamped-and-die-cut lipstick (in Mint Macaron and Tuxedo Black).  Tip – you need to cut the lipstick down so that it fits into the pocket!


I cut one of the smaller buttons from some Gold Foil and stuck it on with Liquid Glue.  The sentiment, from Dressed to Impress, is stamped in Lovely Lipstick on Whisper White, cut with the label die from All Dressed Up and adhered with more Liquid Glue.

A Glue Dot adheres a Petal Pink Best Dressed Tassel and a little bow tied from Mint Macaron 1/8″ Sheer Linen Ribbon.

I made a total of 6 little note cards and envelopes to go inside this sweet little tote.  Some I made using the Best Dressed 3″ x 3″  Note Cards & Envelopes.  I ran out of the notecards, so I also created some with 3″ x 6″ Whisper White pieces, scored and folded at 3″.  Fortunately, I had more envelopes – love those scalloped flaps!

The trick to making a “set” – to me – is to keep the colors cohesive from card to card.  So….all the sentiments were stamped in Lovely Lipstick.  Cards were coordinated with their envelopes….  I used Mint Macaron “dots” on all the cards.   And kept the color palette simple…

Did you know that you can approximate Purple Posy ink with stamped-off-once Highland Heather?  No?  Well…now you do! 🙂

I made two of each “color” of note cards – you saw the Petal Pink set up above.  There’s also a Daffodil Delight set…

And the aforementioned Purple Posy…. aka stamped-off-once Highland Heather!

Let’s talk sentiments, shall we?  All the note card fronts have a sentiment from the Dressed to Impress stamp set.  On the inside – I used sentiments from the Sending You Thoughts set in the Sale-A-Bration Flyer (this is a FREE-with-$50-order level gift!).

If you look closely, you’ll see I decorated each of the envelope flaps with a Gold Foil die cut button from the All Dressed Up Dies – adhered with Liquid Glue.  Atop the button is a tiny bow from Mint Macaron 1/8″ Sheer Linen Ribbon – adhered with a Glue Dot!

Now – in case it’s not obvious – these are not suitable for mailing as they sit.  Right?  You’d need to put them in an A2 size envelope (or some USPS-approved envelope) to mail them.  Or stick them inside a gift box.  Or keep them in your purse to randomly hand out to folks who deserve a little thank you! 🙂

Et Voila!  Wouldn’t this little All Dressed Up purse – filled with 6 Dressed to Impress note cards and envelopes great for Thank You’s, Congratulations and Birthday! – make an awesome gift?  I hope you like!

If you want to recreate this set – all the Stampin’ Up! products you need are listed down below.  Hint:  if you buy the Dressed To Impress Bundle, the Best Dressed DSP and the Mint Macaron 1/8″ Sheer Linen Ribbon – you’ll reach the Level 1 reward threshold for Sale-A-Bration and you can “complete” your set with the free Sending You Thoughts stamp set!!

Now – before you reach for your ink and papers, check out what our amazing team has created to inspire you this week:

Stamps-N-Lingers Weight Loss Milestone FLASH Ordering Special!!

Hey guys – this is my second post today – if you’re looking for my card from earlier – here ‘tis!

So – last night, when I got ready for bed I – as always – added the last things to my food log (a digital food diary in my Lose It app!) and hit “I’m Done Logging” which I’ve now done every day for….a long time.

I didn’t realize EXACTLY how long until…this popped up!

One.  Thousand.  Days.

I started on 2 April 2017 and have lost a total of 126 pounds – which I did on 16 Jun 2018! Read how here.

And while I’m tickled silly with THAT – I’ve even MORE tickled that I’ve kept it off since.

Which is sort of a record for me!

I decided to celebrate.  With you guys – by giving you double CALORIE-FREE peppermints – and free shipping (but this one has a catch)!!

 

 

So – here’s the dealy-o!

This is VERY limited time.  This special is only thru this Tuesday (21 Jan).  And it’s a two-parter so read CAREFULLY!

Here’s the deets!

Stampin’ Up! Just Us Girls Guest Designer Witty-Cisms Welcome Baby

Good morning, my peeps!  We’re three-quarters of the way thru my “term” as a Guest Designer at the Just Us Girls Challenge! Which is why I’m in your Inbox so early!  I’m pretty sure you won’t see this for a few hours, but…hopefully it’s a nice thing to wake up to! 🙂

This week is a color challenge – and I interpreted the colors in a not-so-obvious way!  I pulled out the new Witty-Cisms stamp set and used some Neutrals and 2019-2021 DSP to help me out.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Perfectly Framed Sending Hugs

Happy Friday!  Whoo-hoo!  Hope you’ve had a good week and have something fun planned for the weekend.  We’re supposed to get chilly again and some more rain.  Yeah?!?

Oh well – good weekend to plant my new seed starter!  Yep – got me a light stand and seed starter and SEEDS!!  Time to get those transplants started!

Now – on to the card, since that’s why you’re here, right?  I mean…AFTER you read the Finn Fan Fix.  Yes.  I know you check that first!  It’s okay to admit it. 😉

I pulled out the new perfectly Framed stamp set which coordinates with the carryover Ornate Frames Dies (remember it from the 2019 Holiday Catalog?).  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Moments and Lily Impressions

Happy Hawwwmp Day, y’all!!  How goes your week?

We’re becoming “mold-people” here, I think!  It’s rained.  And rained.  And…yes.  Rained.  For so long now….

But – make no mistake – I’ll take this (and our unseasonably warm days!) – over snow, sleet and cold-of-night anytime!

Do want to remind you…there are only TWO days left to take advantage of my Special Bundles for the 2020 Jan – Jun Mini Catalog.  That’s right – after the day ends on the 17th (Friday!) – these specials are Gone with the Wind!!

Now – my card for today is easy.  And also peasy!  It used the lovely Beautiful Moments stamp set from the new catalog, along with the Parisian Flourish 3D Embossing Folder.  Plus…a FREE goody – the Iris Impressions DSP.  This is one you can get for free with a $50 order (before shipping and tax) while Sale-A-Bration is going on (thru 31 Mar).  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Heartfelt Pleased As Punch for the Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Good morning, 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 our theme is Luuuuuv!  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 used the new Pleased As Punch DSP for this one – it really did the lion’s-share of the work.  This pretty paper is one of the goodies coming in the Coordinating Product Release that you’ll see on 4 Feb.  I also pulled the Heartfelt Bundle (with the Heart Punch Pack) and the Detailed Hearts Die to help me out.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Positive Thoughts

Good morning, y’all!  Hope you’re headed into a good and relatively stress-free week!!

Before we get going – I’ve got THREE extra Single Paper Shares ready to go if anyone wants them.  $15 +$5 for first class shipping gets you 48 – 6″ x 6″ sheets of beautiful new Designer Series Papers – and 6 Best Dressed 3″ x 3″ Note Cards and Envelopes.  Let me know ASAP if you want one or more of these packs of gorgeous paper! 🙂

I’ve got a very feminine card for you today – using the new Positive Thoughts stamp set. It also uses two wonderful Coordination Products that will be available to you on 4 Feb – the Nature’s Thoughts dies and the Pleased As Punch DSP.  Take a look-see!

The soft color palette is from this week’s CAS Colors & Sketches challenge.

And I think it’s pretty feminine so… I’ll enter it in the Water Cooler Wednesday challenge!

I started with a piece of Petal Pink gingham paper from the new Pleased As Punch DSP and matted it on So Saffron for the card front.

Next, using the large rectangle die in the Nature’s Thoughts Dies, I cut out a piece of Whisper White.

On that panel, I stamped the large leaf image from Positive Thoughts several times without re-inking in Bermuda Bay.  Then I added the fluer-d-doo image in So Saffron – again stamping several times without re-inking.

Then I adhered the panel to the card front with Liquid Glue.

Next up was to stamp and cut all the elements for the collage.  I stamped the big leaf image in Bermuda Bay on Whisper White and cut it with the die in Nature’s Thoughts.  I stamped two Petal Pink flowers and three Daffodil Delight butterflies and cut them out as well.  Then I cut two feathers – one in Whisper White and one in Petal Pink Perennial Essence Vellum Card Stock.  Finally, a few Bermuda Bay leaf die cuts joined the pile!

The sentiment – from Positive Thoughts – is stamped in Bermuda Bay on the Perennial Essence Vellum and cut with an Ornate Frames Die (carried over from the Holiday Catalog).

With everything cut and ready, I built the collage – adding and moving pieces around until it looked right.

Then I took it’s picture!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere all the pieces – starting with the large Bermuda Bay leaf and building the layers.  When I got to the sentiment – I used Glue Dots (they’re pretty easy to “hide” when using Vellum!).  Finally – the last flower is popped on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I used Liquid Glue to tuck the Bermuda Bay die cut leaves in here and there into the collage and then added a bow tied with Petal Pink 5/8″ Striped Organdy Ribbon with a Glue Dot.

A few Champagne Rhinestone Jewels finished off the card front.

On the inside, I added the large Positive Thoughts leaf in Bermuda Bay on a Whisper White panel, stamping it a few times without re-inking.  I also added a second sentiment in Bermuda Bay.  Over the sentiment, in stamped-off-once Petal Pink, I stamped the feather image from the stamp set.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a So Saffron mat and into my Bermuda Bay card base, added the card front with Liquid Glue and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Bermuda Bay leaves on the front…

…and more of the Pleased As Punch DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I love this color scheme and the Positive Thoughts stamp set is just gorgeous!  Thank you, Stampin’ Up!, for the Nature’s Thoughts Dies so we can easily cut out all the wonderful images in the stamp set!!

The Pleased As Punch DSP is amazeballs!  The back of the design I used here has hearts – and they all get punched with the new Hearts Punch Pack!!

Whoo-hoo!  I hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix


Finn is a bit of a…daredevil!

He takes risks.

Like…

It’s his favorite spot to sleep when we’re all in the living room

He risks squish-i-fication at any moment.

Cuz…he gets so far under there that he’s pretty hard to see.  So…it’s pretty darned easy to forget he’s there!

Goofy thing.
