Stampin’ Up! Perfectly Wrapped in Plaid Ho Ho Ho!

Morning, y’all!  Are you checking out the Year-End-Closeout bargains and determining which of the Retiring and Discontinuing goodies you need to add to your stash before they’re gone?  I hope so – don’t be risking losing them forever! 🙂

My card today uses a stamp set and punch that IS carrying over – the Perfectly Plaid Bundle with its Pine Tree Punch!  But – when next you see it – it will NOT be a bundle – and you will NOT be able to save 10% on the purchase price.  So…if you don’t have it yet…get it before the end of the Holiday catalog!

I mean – unless you LIKE spending extra money??

No?

Didn’t think so!

I used the bundle and combined it with the seriously gorgeous Wrapped in Plaid DSP.  Which is NOT carrying over – which means you MUST get it before 2 Jan (or before it sells out!).  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Everything Amazing and Silhouettes!

Happy happy HAWWWMP Day! 🙂  Hope your week is going well!

Back when I first saw the new See A Silhouette DSP, I thought in my head…”Hey – the 70’s called and want their psychedelic colors back!”.  Not that I don’t like it – I really do (a LOT!) – but…it’s definitely wild.  And – for me – has a sort of 70’s hippy vibe.   I used it with a fun new stamp set called Everything Amazing.  Take a look-see:

This stamp set works perfectly with this week’s Just Us Girls Trend challenge!

I started by adhering some of that wonderful paper on Mango Melody for the card front!

Using my Stamparatus, I stamped the big bold sentiment from Everything Amazing in Poppy Parade on a piece of Whisper White.  Then I added the other two – smaller – sentiments in Mossy Meadow.  This set is so fun – you can mix and match to make so many different sentiments! 🙂

I added some candles – also from the Everything Amazing stamp set – in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored them with my Poppy Parade, Mango Melody, Pacific Point and Blackberry Bliss Stampin’ Write Markers.

I matted the panel on Mango Melody and popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a few Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels – no, I know, they don’t match but…what DID in the 70’s?!?!  And the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a couple of Tuxedo Black balloons – that I colored in Poppy Parade, Pacific Point and Mango Melody – and a few Poppy Parade confetti strands and Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels to a Whisper White panel.

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more balloons and confetti on the front…

…and I added more “groovy, man” See A Silhouette DSP to the envelope flap!

Et Voila!  Isn’t this such a fun stamp set?  Everything Amazing is so versatile – and big enough to “carry” a card all by itself!  And the See A Silhouette DSP – not my usual style but…it’s so in-your-face fun and pretty – I can’t help but love it!  I hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix


 

Well – the Finn-ster didn’t come home quite as unscathed from summer camp as we thought.  He’s got kennel cough.

Which is a generic term for any contagious upper respiratory illness with a cough.

So – he’s been hacking and coughing since last night.

Which meant…a trip to his doctor on Tuesday.

Only WE don’t like to go to his doctor (mostly cuz of the credit card business at the end!).

Finn LOVES his doctor!  And is the best of patients!

The good news is that the medicine they gave us was already making him feel better by Tuesday evening!! 🙂

Thanks, Dr. Chris!

That’s not “new” Dr. Chris – that’s “old” Dr. Chris.  What are the odds there’d be TWO Dr. Chris’s in Finn’s life?!?

Stampin’ Up! Modern Heart is a Well Written Thank You

Well.  Tuesday arrives.  And when I look out the window I don’t see the Greek isles – or miles and miles of ocean.

And – when I go to get a cup of coffee, no one will admonish me to “washy-washy”!! 🙂

It’s truly back to the real world, my peeps! 🙂

My Katy is fine – looks like she got along okay in our absence.  I wanted to thank Sonya for taking care of her, so…a card seemed to be in order!  And – unlike the horse-care-thank-you…this one needed a cat.  So…out came the Cat Punch.  And I paired it up with the new Modern Heart stamp set.  Take a look-see:

The color scheme for this one came from this week’s Sunday Stamps color challenge.

I started with a piece of Whisper White.  In the middle, I stamped the bold “swath” image from the new Modern Heart stamp set.  I stamped it twice in Bermuda Bay ink.  With the tiny heart image, I stamped here and there in Pretty Peacock.  Then I matted the panel on Highland Heather.

On a second piece of Whisper White, I stamped the large heart image in Tuxedo Black.  Then I colored the various shapes on the inside with my Light and Dark Stampin’ Blends in Bermuda Bay, Shaded Spruce, Highland Heather, Purple Posy, and Pretty Peacock.  Then I fussy cut the heart.

I used some Glue Dots to adhere two lengths of Whisper White 5/8″ Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon to the card front.

I added some Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of my fussy cut Modern Heart and used them to wind several loops of Silver Metallic Thread.  Then I popped the heart onto the card front.

I punched the cat out of Basic Black card stock using the Cat Punch and adhered her over the heart with Liquid Glue.

Using the Well Written Dies, I cut “thanks” and “You” from Whisper White.  I snipped the “s” off of “thanks” and then adhered the words to the card with Liquid Glue.

I added some Noble Peacock Rhinestones and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped the large Modern Heart in stamped-off-TWICE Pretty Peacock on a Whisper White panel.  Over the top, I added a sentiment in Highland Heather.  I scattered some tiny hearts across the panel in Bermuda Bay.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Highland Heather mat and into my Pretty Peacock card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more hearts on the front…

…and I used my Stamparatus to add the Modern Heart images on the back as well!

Et Voila!  I wasn’t sure about this Modern Heart set – but was intrigued by the samples in the catalog, so I added it to my stash!  And boy, am I glad that I did!  It’s obviously going to be a great set to use for all sorts of cards!  I love it in the peacock colors of the challenge.  I hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix


 

The Man is home!  He was happy to see us – for about 15 seconds, then he zoomed around the Puppy Tubs lobby sniffing every single sniff.  And debating if he could get away with grabbing a bone out of one of the baskets!  Even the pictures are blurry! 😉

He was damp – so he’d obviously had a play in the pool in the morning – and ready to get in the car (after we got his suitcase and food bucket!).

That’s not his suitcase – that’s my new Soda Stream!

On the way to the house, right at the mailbox, we saw a doe and two (tiny!) fawns!  I was WAY WAY too slow to capture them on camera – but…the Man totally saw them!

Once we made it to the house, he unpacked his suitcase, putting Mr. Reindeer and Mr. Elephant away.  Then…it was time for….

…a nap in front of the air conditioning vent.  This travel stuff is exhausting – the jet lag is just horrendous! 😉

Stampin’ Up! Well Written Let it Ride Thank You

Well – it’s the last day. 🙁  For our cruise AND for Double Peppermints (just sayin’!).

It’s been wonderful and folks are already looking forward to Maui.  Whaaaa?

I’m guessing by the time you read this, we’ll be somewhere over the Atlantic bucking the jet stream to get back stateside!

My card today is destined for the lady who has been taking care of the girls while we were gone.  Which means – it needed horses and woodsy-ness.  And that naturally meant…Let it Ride and the Woodland Embossing Folder.  Take a look-see:

I started with a piece of Crumb Cake card stock and stamped the pretty pine trees image from the Let It Ride set all over it in Mossy Meadow.  Then I embossed it in the Woodland Embossing Folder.  I cut it to size and matted it on Mossy Meadow using Liquid Glue.

I pulled out a couple of lengths of the linen ribbon in the Magnolia Lane Ribbon Combo pack and used SNAIL to adhere them criss-crossedy onto the card front.

I used my Stamparatus to stamp the Let It Ride horse head onto a piece of Pressed Petals Specialty DSP and then cut it with a Stitched Nested Labels die.  I popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut the sentiment from Mossy Meadow card stock using the Well Written Die and adhered it with Liquid Glue.

A couple of Bird Ballad Trinkets leaves – adhered with Glue Dots – set the stage for a Linen Thread double-loop bow topped with a double-length simple bow from Mossy Meadow Linen Thread.  And that was it for the card front!

On the inside, I stamped a second Let It Ride horse image in Tuxedo Black onto a Crumb Cake panel.  In the middle, I added a stamped-off-TWICE Mossy Meadow line of pine trees.

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

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got the grazing horses in Tuxedo Black on the front…

…and more of the Pressed Petals Specialty DSP – with a Mossy Meadow tree line! – on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I hope that my friend likes this Well Written Let It Ride thank you!  I am ever-so-grateful for the good care I know she’s taken of my ladies while we were gone!  And – I hope you like, too! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Friendship and Birch Birthday!

Good morning!  It’s Sunday at…some time?…in Rome.  I think when you get this post, it’ll be around 1400 in the afternoon (which is totally the Department of Redundancy Department since 1400 can ONLY be in the afternoon which is why the 24-hour clock is so darned handy!).

And – we’ll probably be on the ship or close to it!

O. M.  G!  It’s finally here!  Cruising again!!  I got a real taste for being on the water (in a big ship with a comfy cabin and lots of good food!!) on the Alaska cruise last summer – and I’m very grateful to be getting a chance to do it again!!

I’ll post ship pictures tomorrow – and maybe to my FB page today – so…be watching!

My Birthday card today uses the spectacular, and also gorgeous, Beautiful Friendship and Birch background stamp sets.  Take a look-see!

The layout for this one comes from this week’s Sunday Stamps sketch challenge (I turned it on it’s side…)

I started by using my Stamparatus to stamp the Birch image in Sahara Sand on a panel of Whisper White.  Then I cut it down to card-front size and matted it on Seaside Spray using Liquid Glue.

I adhered a strip of the linen-look Pressed Petals Specialty DSP across the card front with Liquid Glue – then used SNAIL and Glue Dots to adhere two lengths of Rococo Rose 1/2″ Scalloped Linen Ribbon.

On another piece of Whisper White, I stamped the hydrangea image from Beautiful Friendship twice in Seaside Spray.  Then I added some Rococo Rose roses, Old Olive leaves – some full strength and some stamped-without-reinking – and some Highland Heather lilacs.

I also added the pretty sentiment in Old Olive.

I matted the panel on Seaside Spray and popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped two more Rococo Rose roses and a couple of Old Olive leaves on Whisper White and fussy cut them.  The leaves and one of the roses is adhered with Liquid Glue – and I popped the second rose next to the sentiment with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a double-loop bow in Linen Thread and a Purple Posy 2019-2021 In Color Faceted Dot and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped a whole cottage garden of flowers from Beautiful Friendship in Rococo Rose, Highland Heather and Old Olive on a Whisper White panel.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Seaside Spray 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 a few (okay – a lot!) more flowers on the front..

…and some more of the Pressed Petals Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Beautiful Friendship lets you garden-on-paper!  No rain or weeding required!  And – the cottage-garden look you can create is just gorgeous!  I hope you like!

Now – off the the Lido Deck! 😉

P.S  Saturday was a good day in Rome – will post more about it later – but…we only ate gelato ONCE.  We had tiramisu, too.  But…it was so tiny….  We went to a spot that is apparently the #1 Tiramisu in Rome.  Called Two Sizes. We posited that there were two doors – a narrow one to go IN and a much WIDER one to go OUT.  But – in fact it was that they had Tiramisu – in a variety of flavors (who knew?!?) – in…yes.  Two Sizes.  I chose small. 😉
