Stampin’ Up! Flowering Rain Boots Rain or Shine!

Good morning and Happy Martin Luther King Day.  If you have today off – I hope you have a wonderful and relaxing day.  If not…I’m sorry.  But…GET TO WORK!!  🙂

I pulled out a new-to-me bundle, called Flowering Rainboots for today’s card!  And I played with the Butterflies & Flowers Layering Decorative Masks (they are SO fun!).  I made a card that would be great to send to a friend going thru a storm of some sort in their life!  Take a look-see:

The color palette is from the Color Throwdown Challenge this week!

I started with a fun mask from the new Butterflies & Flowers Decorative Layering Masks set. Using a Blending Brush, I very lightly swirled Smoky Slate ink in the middle of a Basic White panel.  Hint:  start slow.  Swirl your brush on scrap paper to the side of your cardstock then lightly start blending where you want the ink. Remember: you can ALWAYS add more ink – taking ink AWAY is…problemmatic!

I matted the panel on Garden Green for the card front.

On the marble-side of a piece of gray paper from the new Simply Marbleous DSP (this is FREE during Sale-A-Bration with a $50 purchase), I stamped the pitcher from Flowering Rainboots in Smoky Slate ink.

I cut the pitcher out using the die in the bundled Rain Boots Die set and then adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

On Basic White cardstock, I stamped the following Flowering Rain Boots images:

  • The daisies in Bumblebee ink
  • The tulips in Daffodil Delight
  • The flower stems in Garden Green
  • One pot in Misty Moonlight
  • One pot in Balmy Blue
  • Two “seed packets” in Misty Moonlight
  • One “seed packet” in Bumblee

Each of these images have a matching die in the Rainboots Die set, so I went to cutting!

I adhered a Misty Moonlight and Bumblebee “seed packet” to the card front with Liquid Glue.

Next up I added the two pots with Liquid Glue – sliding the second Misty Moonlight “seed packet” under the pot as I did so.

I used a Blender Pen to pull some of the Garden Green around on the stems to very lightly color the white portions of the image.  Then, I actually cut the plant stems into two pieces – and adhered them with Liquid Glue into the tops of “their” pots! Hint – the image is MADE to allow you to put the stems into two pots without cutting them apart.  I was…dumb. 😉

I popped the daffodils atop the pitcher and the tulips onto the plant stems – they fit PERFECTLY by the way! – with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a narrow strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the Flowering Rain Boots sentiment in Misty Moonlight.  I snipped banners into each end and then popped the sentiment onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I used Glue Dots to add some Brushed Brass Butterflies and…a single Bumblebee Trinket – and the card front was done!

For the inside, I stamped a second Flowering Rain Boots sentiment in Misty Moonlight on a Basic White panel.  In the corner I stamped some Garden Green leaves and the pretty tulips image in Daffodil Delight.  And I added another butterfly, cuz…they are TOO STINKIN’ CUTE! 😉

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Garden Green mat and into my Thick Basic White card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Basic White Medium Envelope got the Flowering Rain Boots tulips on the front…

…and this design in the Sunshine & Rainbows DSP (another free $50-level gift from Sale-a-Bration!) caught my eye and it seemed perfect, so…onto the envelope flap it went! 🙂

Et Voila!  I think these two florals in the Flowering Rain Boots set are so pretty, don’t you?  I love love love how well the tulips fit the stems/leaves!  Add in the coordinating Rain Boots Dies that cut them – and the pots and pitcher (and a hand-rake that I didn’t even use on this card!) – and it’s pretty much perfect!  The Butterflies & Flowers Decorative Layering Masks easily add just the right touch of the soft texture! Don’t forget –  you can get Sunshine & Rainbows DSP OR the Simply Marbleous DSP for FREE with a $50 purchase during the Jan – Feb 2022 Sale-A-Bration!

I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Seas The Day with Special Moments Birthday with Video Tutorial

Well – here we are on Sunday – I’m looking out the window at…not snow.  Not ice.  Not…nuthin’.  Heck – it’s not even all that cold.  Guess the brine all over the road yesterday when we went out – no, we really DID need food, we were NOT “prepping”.  No toilet paper came home with us.  Okay – a LOT of milk came home but…it’s for our yoghurt, okay?!?

Anyway – as I was saying before you gave me the “really, Mary – PREPPING for the storm like eveyr other snowpocalypsaggedon fearmonger in Atlanta” look – guess that brine was a Just In Case thing! 😉

If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live – I appreciate you spending part of your weekend with me. 🙂  If not – and you’d like to have a peek at the replay – here ’tis on YouTube!

Stampin’ Up! Crane of Fortune Special Moments & Symbols

Well – not to put too fine a point on it – it’s Monday again!  In the second week of 2022!

Yea – no real reason to point that out.  Just figured I’d keep you in the loop, up to speed and on the same page!

Stampin’ Up! Honeybee Home Blooms Sneak Peek with Such Good News!

Hello again and happy Monday!  I don’t know about y’all – but…four-day weekends really throw me for a loop. I have trouble remembering what day it is ANYway.  Having a holiday on Thursday just puts me in a spin! 🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️

My card today is simple – but super sweet (she says modestly!).  I used the new Heart & Home DSP and the Honeybee Home stamp set – with the bundled Honeybee Blooms Die set (all coming on 4 Jan in the Jan-Jun 2022 Mini Catalog.  Unless…you JOIN the team – this is a GREAT time to do that!  THEN you can get them on…Wednesday, 1 December!).  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from the Freshly Made Sketches challenge this week.

I started by matting a piece of the pretty gray woodgrain paper from the Heart & Home DSP on Highland Heather for the card front.

Using the next-to-smallest of the skinny dies in the Stitched Rectangle Die set, I cut a piece of the Misty Moonlight paper from Heart & Home and adhered it with Liquid Glue.

Using Stampin’ Seal, I adhered a length of 3/8″ Denim Ribbon (part of the Heart & Home Suite and available on 4 Jan) across the card front.

I used the two dies in the Honeybee Blooms die set to cut a Highland Heather and a Misty Moonlight flower- which I then adhered on the left side, over the ribbon, with Liquid Glue.

I tied a simple bow from Linen Thread and adhered it with a Glue Dot.

On a piece of Basic White, I stamped the uber-sweet Honeybee Home sentiment in Highland Heather.  Then I cut it with the smallest skinny Stitched Rectangle Die.

Using double-stacked Stampin’ Dimensionals, I adhered the sentiment over the top of the ribbon and the bow.

Finally, I added a few Basic Gray dots from the new Classic Matte Dots (from the Jan – Jun 2022 Mini) and the card front was done.

On the inside, I stamped two of the flowers from Honeybee Home in Highland Heather and Misty Moonlight.  I nestled a small Basic Gray Classic Matte Dot in the foliage.

I used Stampin’ Seal to adhere the panel to a Highland Heather mat and into my Smoky Slate card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Basic White Medium Envelope got the Honeybee Home flowers on the front in Misty Moonlight and Highland Heather…

…and more of the Heart & Home DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Wow – this is going to be SUCH a popular Suite!  This amazing Honeybee Home stamp set and bundled Honeybee Blooms dies are so beautiful!  Add the floral and woodgrain beauty of the Heart & Home DSP and… it’s a winner for sure!

If you’d like to recreate this card, all the products and card cuts you’ll need are down below!

No?  Well – I have the solution for you.

For the first time on a WordPress Blog, may I present….

Stampin’ Up! Gingerbread & Peppermints Square Gift Boxes with Video Tutorial

Well – November is winding down FAST, huh?  It’s already the LAST Sunday of the month.  Wow.

Just.  WOW!  😳😳😳 Hope the long weekend went well.  Tell me….do you have your Christmas tree up yet??  I do not.

Yet! 😉

If you were able to join me for my Facebook live video last evening, I appreciate you spending part of your holiday weekend with me!  If not, but you’d like to watch the replay…here ’tis!

I had a friend – and Critters-N-Creatin’ Krew team member! – ask me to help her figure out how to modify a little gift box that she’d seen over at Nigezza Creates.  She wanted something a little bigger that would fit some chocolate.  You KNOW I am all about MORE chocolate, so…I stuck my engineer hat on and…came up with a 1 1/2″ Square Treat box with the fun and Christmas-y Gingerbread & Peppermints 6″ x 6″ DSP – plus…a few little tags and sentiments here and there.  Take a look-see:

While I was making it, I thought…wonder if I couldn’t just give y’all (and myself!) a handy formula so that you could create whatever size box you needed (within the constraints of your cardstock size, of course!).  And…so I did.  And made a 2 3/4″ Square Gift Box, too!

 

The basics are the same for any size – and the Box Size you WANT is the starting point for all the calculations!

For the 1 1/2″ square, I started with a 5″ x 6 1/4″ piece of Real Red cardstock.  Using my Simply Scored Scoring Tool, I scored along the long side at 1 1/2″, 3″, 4 1/2″ and 6″.  Then I rotated the cardstock to put the short side up and scored at 1/4″, 1 3/4″, 3 1/4″ and 4 3/4″.

I used scissors to cut flaps and tabs…

..as you can see here (and at about the 7:45 point in the video!).

I used my Paper Snips to trim rounded corners on the large tabs.

In the video, I matted the small DSP squares on Basic White and then adhered them to the square panels of the box base.

I selected my “top” and used the very top of the head on the Snowman Builder Punch to cut a “thumb” hole.

Then I added Liquid Glue the small tab on the right side of the base in the picture above.  I closed the box together – check the video at about the 19 minute mark to see how!

I used a sentiment from the Peaceful Cabin stamp set and stamped it in Old Olive on Basic White.  Then I cut it with a small tag die from the Ornate Frames die set.  I also cut a Real Red tag.  Using Liquid Glue, I adhered the two little tags together – slightly offset but with the tiny holes lined up.

I ran a piece of white Baker’s Twine from the Baker’s Twine Essential Pack thru the hole and tied a little bow.  I adhered the tag with a Glue Dot.

Using the small circle die in the Gingerbread Die set, I cut a small Basic White circle.  Then I cut the coordinating “peppermint swirl” die cut in Real Red.  I adhered the swirl to the circle with Liquid Glue, then popped it on the end of the tag with a Stampin’ Dimensional – and the box was done!

The large box has some Real Red 3/8″ Mini Ruffled Ribbon and a tag made with the Giving Gifts and Tailored Made Tags die sets.

I adhered the  Basic White Tailored Made Tag to the back of the Real Red detailed cut with Liquid Glue – adhering “bad” side to “bad” side.  That left the nicer “front” side visible on the back – where I stamped an Old Olive sentiment from the Festive & Bright set.

Et Voila!  I love this little Square Gift Box – whether it’s 1″, 1 1/2″ or a “huge” (😉) 2 3/4″!  Note:  2 3/4″ is about as big as you can get with 12″ x 12″ cardstock!

While I’ve used the Gingerbread & Peppermints DSP here – you can use whatever DSP suits your occasion!  Look thru your stamps and dies (although you NEED the Ornate Frames, Tailor Made Tags and Giving Gifts Die Sets – just saying!) and use the sentiments that you’ve got! 🙂

Finn Fan Fix 

Wayne was sitting on the end of the couch yesterday afternoon watching the UGA/GT game (or…was it a game or a schooling? 😉  GO UGA!) and made the mistake of getting up to go to the bathroom.

As soon as he cleared the hallway – the Man took advantage of the newly opened “spot” on the sofa.

Wayne returned to find…

…that necessitated some pooch-pouncing!

Finny loves a good pooch-pouncing!

…but they never last NEAR long enough!

Come back, Dad – I’m in your spot and I need pounced!

Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Sparkle of the Season for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good morning, y’all!  First off…HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!  I hope that (AFTER you read thru our blog!) that you have a most wonderful day with family and friends and lots of food and….elastic waistbands!! 😉

It’s ALSO Thursday – which means it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!!  We’ve got a sketch challenge to work with 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!

I decided that it would be a good day to acknowledge that it’s practically Christmas, so I pulled out the Sparkle of the Season Bundle (one of my VERY favorites in the current Jul – Dec 2021 Mini Catalog!) and combined it with some gorgeous Peaceful Place Specialty DSP.  Take a look-see:

And here’s the sketch we were all working with!

I also took inspiration from the Tic-Tac-Toe challenge this week!  I went on the diagonal (Plaid-Wreath-Red); down the left column (Plaid – Layers – Die Cut); and…across the bottom (Die Cut – Sequins/Gsms – Red).  🙂

I started with the diamond-y paper from the Peaceful Place Specialty DSP and I matted it on Evening Evergreen.  Then I took a slightly narrower piece of the plaid Peaceful Place Specialty DSP and adhered it over the top with Liquid Glue.

I adhered a narrow strip of Cherry Cobbler cardstock across the “seam” with Liquid Glue to create the card front.

Using the dies in the bundled Seasonal Swirls die set, I cut an Evening Evergreen and a Soft Succulent “pine boughs” wreath.  I also cut the star-strewn wreath from a piece of the (shiniest) silver foil from the Silver Foil Specialty Pack.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the three die cut wreaths in a “stack”.

I tied a small bow from silver Simply Elegant Trim and adhered it with a Glue Dot.

On a strip of Basic White, I stamped the Sparkle of the Season sentiment in Cherry Cobbler.  Then I snipped banners in each end with Paper Snips – and used double-stacked Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the sentiment over top.

I cut out six holly leaves – there’s a sweet little die in the Seasonal Swirls Dies that cuts two at a time! – from Evening Evergreen and adhered them around the wreath.

Then I added Cherry Cobbler gems from the Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels as “berries” for each leaf pair.

I added an Evening Evergreen gem from the 2021-2023 In Color Jewels to the sentiment and the card front was done.

On the inside, I stamped the second sentiment from Sparkle of the Season in Cherry Cobbler on a Basic White panel.  Over top, I added the pine bough from Sparkle of the Season in stamped-off-once Soft Succulent.  Then I added a small Evening Evergreen gem.

I used Stampin’ Seal to adhere the panel to an Evening Evergreen mat and into my Cherry Cobbler card base and the card was done!

My Basic White Medium Envelope got some pine boughs from Sparkle of the Season in Soft Succulent on the front…

…and more of the Peaceful Place Specialty DSP on the envelope flap!

Et Voila! Sparkle of the Season – and the bundled Seasonal Swirls dies – is SUCH a great bundle!  Crossing multiple holidays, with the gorgeous wreath dies – complete with decorations for the wreaths – this will be one of your go-to bundles!  And…there is no denying the subtle, elegant beauty of the Peaceful Place Specialty DSP is there?

I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Honeybee Home Sneak Peek with Biggest Wish Thanks

Happy Happy Hawwwmp Day – and happy Thanksgiving Eve!  Are you ready?  Today is cooking day – at least at my house.  My pressure cooker is going to be a-steaming away!

I’ve got a cool card – with a sneak peek of a bundle from the new Jan-Jun 2022 Mini Catalog – going live to you on 4 Jan 2022!  The Honeybee Home Bundle is one I was anxiously awaiting – and now…it’s all sticker-mounted and inked up!  I also borrowed a sentiment from the Biggest Wish set – available now in the Annual Catalog.  And…gorgeous Heart & Home DSP plays a major role.  Take a look-see:

 

I used the sketch from Sunday Stamps for the layout.

And – many elements are thanks to the inspiration from the As You See It challenge.

I started by adhering a piece of new Heart & Home DSP to an Early Espresso mat for the card front.

I cut a piece of Bumble Bee cardstock with a Stitched Rectangle Die, then embossed it in the new Hive 3D Embossing Folder (coming on 4 Jan in the Jan-Jun 2022 Mini Catalog).  I adhered the die cut to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I matted some gray woodgrain paper from Heart & Home DSP on Early Espresso and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

Then I used a little Liquid Glue to adhere a new Basic Gray Heart & Home Doily (coming in the new catalog on 4 Jan – and the pack has Cinnamon Cider, Basic Gray and Misty Moonlight doilies!)

I used the grass and flowers dies in the Honeybee Blooms Dies (bundled with Bumble Bee Home) to cut two from Bumble Bee and one from Cinnamon Cider cardstock.  These are adhered to the gray doily with Liquid Glue.

On a piece of Basic White, I stamped the sentiment from Biggest Wish in Bumble Bee ink.  Over it, I stamped a grasses image from Honeybee Home in stamped-off-once Cinnamon Cider.  Then I cut it with a Layering Circles Die and popped it onto the doily with Stampin’ Dimensionals.


I stamped a few little bee images from Honeybee Home in Basic Gray ink on Basic White and cut them with their matching dies in the Honeybee Blooms Dies.  I colored them with my Bumble Bee Stampin’ Write Marker.

Then I adhered the bees with Liquid Glue (the bottom bee has a Dimensional under his little bee-butt).

I tied a Linen Thread Double loop bow…

a. Wrap the Linen Thread around four fingers four times.
b. Without cutting the thread, wrap around two fingers four times.
c. Pull the loops off and squeeze the loops together.
d. Twist the loops one time around to create a “figure 8”.
e. Tie a second short length of Thread around the loops in the middle.
f. Spread the loops out to create a bow

…and adhered it with a Glue Dot.  To finish off, I added some Cinnamon Cider 2020-2021 In Color Squares and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped a sweet sentiment from Honeybee Home in Bumble Bee ink on a Basic White panel.  In the corner I used Bumblebee and Cinnamon Cider to stamp some Honeybee Home florals.

I used Stampin’ Seal to adhere the panel to an Early Espresso mat and into my Cinnamon Cider card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Basic White Medium Envelope got more of the Honeybee Home florals on the front…

…and more Heart & Home DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Seriously!?  The Honeybee Home stamp set and bundled Honeybee Flowers Die set is part of the Heart & Home Suite and…I love it SOOO much!  I mean…look at the font on those sentiments!

Combine it with the Heart & Home DSP and…think of what you can make!

I hope you like!

Now – if you’re wanting to get your hands on these goodies – or any OTHER from the new catalog – sooner than 4 Jan…well.  Take advantage of the amaze-balls Start with Savings Starter Kit promotion (pick $125 in goodies, get free shipping and pay just $75!!) and join my team right now!  THEN – on 1 December you (like I will be doing!) can place a pre-order and get the new goodies for yourself.  Including this suite!  Click here to get started – would love to have you on the team!

  • Get 20%–25% off all Stampin’ Up! products. That’s on….EVERYTHING!
  • While there’s no requirement to sell, there is the opportunity to do so!  You can earn additional income based on your sales and recruiting–just how much extra income is up to you.
  • Set your own schedule and put in as much or as little or even….NONE at ALL… time as you’d like.
  • Get support through online training resources, events, and a demonstrator-only online community with thousands of project ideas.
  • Access to regular promotions, giving you an opportunity to contact customers.
  • Opportunity to earn incentive trips.
  • Get early looks at new products – and the chance to add them to your tool chest before anyone else!
  • Chance to learn creative tips and techniques, share ideas, and come into contact with new friends who love papercrafting as much as you do!

There’s NO commitment and NO penalty if you decide that being a Demonstrator isn’t right for you.  Why not give it a try?  The CNCK has a fun Facebook page where we chat a lot and share our projects (you can even win fun prizes!).  And – we gather up via Zoom once a month, too, for folks that want to do that!  Have I mentioned we’re a pretty fun group of folks?  No??  Well – we totally are – and we’d love to have you join us!

Got questions about joining?  Drop me a note at stamps-n-lingers@comcast.net!   I’d be happy to chat with you more about it!  You can also get more deets about being a Demonstrator here and then head here to get started and pick up that great deal on the Starter Kit!

Will YOU be the next to join my CNCK Team?  I sure hope so! 😉


Jul – Dec 2021 Mini Catalog Last Chance Products Sale!

Starts on 1 Dec 2021!

The July–December 2021 Mini Catalog will be retiring soon! It’s always bittersweet to see a classic Stampin’ Up! catalog take a trip to retirement. But, we’re looking forward to all the new products on their way—and we hope you are, too!

SALES PERIOD:

Starts: 1 December 2021 at 12:00 AM (MT)
Ends: 3 January 2022 at 11:50 PM (MT)

DETAILS:

  • Each Last Chance Products promotion typically includes a Retiring List (products that will no longer be available once the catalog retires) and a Carryover List (products that will still be available once the catalog retires).
  • The Carryover List will be available online until the 2022–2023 Annual Catalog launches.
  • Look for discounts up to 50% on SOME (not all) of the items on the Retiring List.
  • All products are available while supplies last, and there are no purchase limits.
  • Discounted items can be added to a Starter Kit and redeemed as a 50% off item or with Stampin’ Rewards.
