Stampin’ Up! Frightfully Cute Halloween for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good morning, y’all!  It’s Thursday – which means it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!!  We’ve got a sketch challenge to work with – AND a new hopper – help me welcome Tara Carpenter to the hop line-up! – 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 figured being that it’s practically October and I think I’ve done like…one?…two??…Halloween cards, that maybe I ought to bring another one to the table.  So…out came the Cute Halloween 6″ x 6″ DSP and the Frightfully Cute Bundle.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Merry Snowflakes & Peaceful Place Christmas Card

Good morning and happy Monday!  The last Monday in September.  Can you even believe it?? I’m having trouble with the idea that we’re headed into the last few months of 2021.  Crazy!

Even crazier??  Sale-a-Bration 2 is almost over – three more days is all that’s left and then…buh-bye free stuff!  Buh-bye FREE extra bundle just for buying a Starter Kit and starting to get a 20% discount on everything.  Seems like yesterday SAB 2 was kicking off – and now it’s almost over!

My card today is an easy one that would be a sweet addition to your Christmas Card list.  It used the Merry Snowflakes stamp set – bundled with the Stitched Snowflakes Dies.  And some pretty Peaceful Place Specialty DSP.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! A Fall-ish Card Video Tutorial Sneak Peek!

Good morning, y’all!  I hope you’re fixin’ to have a good day!  The weather here is the answer to “why the heck do you live in GA with the nasty heat and humidity” question.  Because of FALL!!  All things being equal, Finny and I are headed south about an hour to a fun-drive event (horse carriages – not cars!).  We’ll be spectators only – but…I’m sort of excited to dip my toes back into the carriage driving world.  Not sure more than my toes will get wet, but…we’ll see.

Just so you know – the girls both just fainted down in the pasture at the very idea that driving might be back on the table.  NOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!  😂😂😂😂

But – I’ll be back this evening in time to get together with y’all to make a cool Fall card for you over on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page!  I’ll go live at 7pm Eastern.  Take a sneaky peek.

Stampin’ Up! Frosted Gingerbread Easel-Treat Box Fun Fold with Video Tutorial

Good morning and Happy Friday!  Wanna hear something REALLY scary!?  Hang on to your hat.

There are 93 days until Christmas.

Yes.  Ninety.  Three.

Less than 100.  Three months.

In other words…it’s TOMORROW!!!! 😳😳😳😳😳

To that end, I have a fun stocking stuffer for you today!  If you were able to join me yesterday for my YouTube Live then you were able to watch me make it.  If not but you’d like to watch the replay here ’tis!  I highly recommend that you watch it – this isn’t a terribly difficult box – but…it’s a LOT easier to see how to make it from a video than it is from reading!!

Stampin’ Up! Shaded Summer Above & Beyond Thank You

Happy Happy Hawmpp Day!  We’re on the downward slide to the weekend!  Whoo-hooo!

So – at the retreat last weekend, we did a little “class” on the Marker-to-Stamp coloring technique using Stampin’ Write Markers and the Stamparatus.  I’d taken my Shaded Summer stamp set and 2021-2023 In Color Stampin’ Write Markers to do the demo.  I was pretty happy with the resulting piece of art – so I tossed the panel into my stuff to bring home.  I decided to parlay it into a quick and easy thank you card.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Festive & Bright Christmas Card – a Retreat Card!

Hello, y’all – it’s Tuesday!  Tuesday is such a….”meh” kind of day.  It’s not the first day of the week (yuk).  It’s not the last day (yeah!) nor even the day BEFORE the last day (light at the end of the tunnel) and it’s fer sure not HAWWWMP Day!  It’s just…Tuesday.  Another day to slog thru to get to a day with a purpose! 🤷‍♀️

So…maybe this cheery card – brought to us by Sue Prather – that we created over the weekend at our retreat – will give you a little boost and something to be excited about! 🙂  This one uses the flyover Festive & Bright Bundle in the Jul – Dec 2021 Mini Catalog.  And some…FREE Designer Series Paper from the Sale-A-Bration catalog!  I LOVE FREE paper, don’t you??  Take a look-see at what we did with this Peaceful Prints DSP and the Festive & Bright Bundle.

Stampin’ Up! Whimsical Trees & Wonder Top-Fold Easel Card

Good Sunday morning, y’all – from the North GA mountain!  It’s the last day of our retreat – hard to believe.  It takes SO long to get here and then –BLINK– it’s over!  We’ve had such a good time I’m already looking ahead to a team retreat NEXT year here, too!  Maybe one of you reading this will join us! 🙂

We’ve done a bunch of great shoebox projects – and they’re all wunnermus!  I’ll most likely be sharing them over the next few days.  But today, I want to show you the project that I brought for everyone!  It uses one of my fave sets/suites in the Jul – Dec 2021 Mini Catalog – the Whimsical Christmas stamp set with it bundled Christmas Trees dies.  And the gorgeous – totally non-traditional-Christmas colored! – Whimsy & Wonder Specialty DSP.  AND – it’s one of my favorite fun folds, too!  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Cabin Tailor Made Gift Tags

Happy Saturday, y’all!  Hope your weekend is going well!  We’re having a marvelous time at our Retreat – crafting and yakking and eating and then repeating!  James is the consummate host – and we can’t recommend Crafty Elk Lodge enough!!  🙂

When we got here yesterday, we “moved in” to the crafting area and got everything set up.  Which included setting out some welcome gifts!  I figured you’d like to see a very cool gift tag that you can put in your toolkit.  Not to put too fine a point on it – but…it’s the 18th of September.  There’s like…three months left before the Big Gift Giving season is upon us!  Consider this tag – cut using the Tailored Tag Die Set and decorated with the Peaceful Cabin bundle!  Take a look-see:

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!
