Stampin’ Up! Many Messages and Lots of Heart Card

Good morning, y’all!  Are you hunkering down under the weight of snow and ice and bitter cold??  If so, I hope you’ve got power and water and heat.  And chocolate – chocolate is a pretty awesome winter-storm-survival food.

Yesterday, while a few of us were chatting and crafting on my Monday Zoom the Craftroom, I put together a pretty non-Mary kind of card.  In that…it’s not got a ton of layers.  And not a bow in sight!  But…I like how it turned out – and I think it would be a great card for a man!  It used a sentiment from my handy Many Messages bundle and a few Lots of Heart bundle hearts.  Take a look-see:

The layout and elements were inspired by the FUSION challenge this week.  The sketch side and, to some extent, the photo side! 🙂

I started with some light wood paper from the In Good Taste DSP and matted it on Mossy Meadow for the card front.

I took a second piece of the In Good Taste and made a banner with it using my Banner Triple Punch.

Using two of the heart dies in the Many Hearts die set (bundled with Lots of Heart), I cut a Mossy Meadow and a Gray Granite heart.  This pattern is one of the new 2021-2022 Neutrals 6″ x 6″ DSP pack – and you can get it for FREE when you join Stampin’ Up! before the end of Sale-A-Bration on 28 Feb.  And it’ll bring 160 of its friends (translation: you’ll get 200 SHEETS of new-design DSP!!).

I adhered the two hearts to the card front with Liquid Glue.

For the sentiment, I used the Many Messages stamp to stamp all those wonderful sentiments in Bumble Bee on Basic White and then cut them with the single big die in the bundled Messages Die.  Full disclosure:  I had this sentiment – and a bunch of others! – in my little tackle box from stamping and cutting them for a previous card!

I popped my sentiment onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals, added a Bumble Bee 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dot, and the card front was done.

Yep – done.  Set.  The.  Card.  Front.  Down!

On the inside, I inked the plaid heart from Lots of Heart in Mossy Meadow and stamped it in the corner of a Basic White panel.  I added a sentiment from Lots of Heart in Bumble Bee.  And another Bumble Bee enamel dot, too!

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

My Basic White Medium Envelope got the plaid Lots of Heart heart on the front in Mossy Meadow…

…and more of the In Good Taste DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Simple.  Hardly any layers (easy to mail – you’re welcome!).  Not my normal card style by any stretch.  But…I really like how it turned out!  The two sets – Lots of Heart and Many Messages go together perfectly, don’t you think??

And don’t forget – there’s only 12 days left in Sale-A-Bration!  Which means…in THIRTEEN days….no more free 200 sheets of new DSP (that’s a $59 value – on top of the awesome Starter Kit goodness!) for joining the team!  Be sure to pull the trigger and get in on the great deal before it’s gone.  I’d love to have you on my team! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Hey Chick Happy Day with Video Tutorial

Good morning! Happy Valentine’s Day – are there romantic plans in your future?  And – it’s ALSO a three-day weekend! I don’t know about y’all – but…three day weekends – when it’s cold and yucky outside – just aren’t that exciting!  There should be more of them later in Spring when the weather is pretty and we WANT to be outside doing things.  I think we need to combine chocolate (Valentine’s Day) with an acknowledgment that it’s nasty outside – and…snuggle down with some hot chocolate, a warm dog (or kitty!) and a good book!!  Who’s with me?

If you were able to spend some of your long weekend with me on my Facebook Live video last night, I appreciate it!  If not, here’s the replay on YouTube!

For this card, I used the undeniably adorable Hey Chick stamp set and bundled Chick Dies – with a little 2020-2022 In Color 6″ x 6″ DSP.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this card comes from this week’s Global Design Project sketch.

I started by matting a piece of Bumble Bee paper from the 2020-2022 In Color 6″ x 6″ DSP on Old Olive for the card front.

Next, I used the die in the Chick Dies to cut two chicken-wire die cuts.  I trimmed one down a bit and then adhered them to the card front with Liquid Glue.  Tip: I like the ends of things to “fall” off the edge of the card front a little – so…I placed the card front onto my card base (not adhered) so that I could be sure it hung over just enough – but NOT past the edges of the card base.

I cut the largest oval Stitched Shapes Die from a piece of Basic White and popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Then I started cutting barn-yard shapes using the Chick Dies.  From Soft Suede, I cut a chicken coop and a sign.  Mossy Meadow for four corn stalks, Old Olive for four corn husks, and Bumble Bee for four corn cobs.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the husks to the cobs and then to the stalks.  And I stamped the Hey Chick sentiment in Tuxedo Black onto the sign.

I used short little pieces of 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim to make corn “silks”.  This was my friend Debbie Lindauer’s idea (yes – I made this card while we were all playing and crafting on my Zoom The Craftroom on Thursday evening – so it was kind of a card-by-committee!).  I adhered the little pieces of trim to the back of each corn cob and then pulled it apart to make it all corn-silky! 😉

I adhered the coop and three stalks to the Basic White oval with Liquid Glue.

On a piece of Basic White, I stamped the Hey Chick crazy-hair chick in Tuxedo Black.  I colored her hair, tail feathers, legs and beak with my Flirty Flamingo and Bumble Bee Stampin’ Write Markers.  Her body is Dark So Saffron Stampin’ Blend.  Then I cut her out with the matching die in the Chick Dies.

I popped my chick on with Stampin’ Dimensionals, then tucked the final corn stalk in behind her.  Finally, with more Dimensionals and a little Liquid Glue, I popped the sign in place – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a second Hey Chick sentiment in Tuxedo Black on a Basic White panel.  The crazy hair chick peeks in from the corner!

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

My Basic White Medium Envelope got miss crazy hair on the front…

…and more of the Bumble Bee 2020-2022 In Color 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Seriously – how cute is this bundle??  I don’t know what I love more – the crazy chickens in the Hey Chick stamp set or the so-uber-fun die cuts in the Chick Dies?!?  How about you??

No matter what you like more – the stamp set and dies are limited time – so…if you love them like I do – get them sooner rather than later, okay?

I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Prettiest Birthday 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 Birthdays!  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 decided it was time to ink up a pretty set called…Prettiest Birthday and use the matching Pretty Birthday dies to create a birthday dessert-apalooza!  And – since birthdays seem to demand ice cream with the cake, I used a little Ice Cream Corner DSP.  Take a look-see:

The layout I chose is from the MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge.  I turned the sketch on its side…

I started with a piece of Basic White cardstock and, using the banner stamp in the Prettiest Birthday set, stamped it five times in Cinnamon Cider. I colored the banners using my Rococo Rose, Blushing Bride, Blackberry Bliss, Mint Macaron and Bumble Bee Stampin’ Write Markers.  Then I matted the panel on a piece of Cinnamon Cider cardstock.

Next up, I use my Stitched Rectangle dies to cut two equal-size pieces of Ice Cream Corner DSP and adhered them to the side of the card with Liquid Glie.

I cut a Rococo Rose circle with a Stitched Shapes Die and added it with Liquid Glue.

On Basic White, I stamped the cake, plate of macarons and flower arrangement images from Prettiest Birthday in Cinnamon Cider.  Then I cut them all with their matching dies in the Happiest Birthday die set.

I colored the images using the Rococo Rose, Blushing Bride, Blackberry Bliss, Mint Macaron and Bumble Bee Stampin’ Write Markers.

The sentiment, from Prettiest Birthday, is stamped in Rococo Rose on a strip of Basic White, with a banner end.

I adhered the flower arrangement and then the plate of macarons onto the card front with Liquid Glue.  Then I used a Glue Dot to add a bow tied with two lengths of white twine from the Snail Mail Twine Combo Pack.  I popped the sentiment on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and then added the cake with DOUBLE-STACKED dimensionals.

On the inside, I added a second sentiment from Prettiest Birthday in Cinnamon Cider to a Basic White panel.  Then I added more of the banners in Cinnamon Cider, coloring them as I’d done on the front.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Cinnamon Cider mat and into my Rococo Rose card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Basic White Medium Envelope got more Prettiest Birthday banners on the front…

…and a little more Ice Cream Corner DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I love how the Prettiest Birthday set and its bundled Happiest Birthday dies are a whole party-in-a-stamp-bundle!  All you need to add is some Ice Cream Corner DSP!

I hope you like!

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

Stampin’ Up! Sweet Strawberry Blessings Fun Fold With Video Tutorial

Happy last day of January, y’all!  And – this is the half-way point for Sale-A-Bration – which means there’s only a month left to join the team and get those extra 200 sheets of Designer Series Paper free! Ask me how to take advantage of this great freebie – AND set yourself up for 20-25% off EVERYTHING you order!  Oh – and you’ll be part of my Critters-N-Creatin’ Krew family, too – which…is pretty awesome!  Even if I DO say so myself.

Which…I totally do! 🙂

So – I’ve got a fun-fold for you today – that will make you think of summer – and I showed how to make it last night on my Facebook live video.  If you were able to spend some of your weekend with me, I appreciate it!  If not, here’s the replay on YouTube!

I pulled out one of my favorite papers – that also just so happens to be a freebie during Sale-A-Bration – the Berry Delightful DSP (that I cut using the Curvy Dies!).  Then I added some flowers and leaves cut with the Strawberry Builder Punch.  And some images and sentiments from the Sweet Strawberry stamp set.  All on a cool fun fold.  Take a look-see:

The layout for the front of the card is inspired by the CAS Colours & Sketches challenge.

And the TGIF challenge was right up my alley!

I started with a piece of Shaded Spruce card stock, cut to 4 1/4″ x 11″ that I scored along the long side at 2 1/4″, 3 5/8″, 7 3/8″ and 8 3/4″.  Then I folded at each score line: 2 1/4″ (valley); 3 5/8″ (mountain); 7 3/8″ (mountain); 8 3/4″ (valley).

I matted two pieces of leafy-green Berry Delightful DSP on Flirty Flamingo and adhered them to the outer panels of the front of the card.

For the front panel, I layered two pieces of the Berry Delightful DSP together and ran them thru the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine with the dotted-curve die from the Curvy Dies in place near the middle.  That gave me four pieces – with two needed for a card front.  If you’re doing the math – that means you can go right ahead and make TWO of these cards lickety split! 🙂

I adhered two of the cut pieces to another piece of Flirty Flamingo and then to the front of the card with Liquid Glue.

The sentiment, from Sweet Strawberry, is stamped in Shaded Spruce on a strip of Basic White.  Then I snipped a banner in one end and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

On another piece of Basic White, I stamped five small flowers from Sweet Strawberry in Flirty Flamingo.  Using the fill-image, I stamped five with full strength Flirty Flamingo and two with stamped-off-once Flirty Flamingo.

Then I stamped three leaves in Shaded Spruce – filling them with Granny Apple Green.  I punched everything out with the Strawberry Builder Punch and curled the flowers lightly with my fingers.

I adhered the leaves with Liquid Glue, then added two flowers.  With a Glue Dot, I adhered a small bow tied with two lengths of White Baker’s Twine from the Snail Mail Twine Combo Pack.  Then I added the third flower with Liquid Glue – and a fourth on top of the bow with a Glue Dot.  The fifth flower is adhered with Liquid Glue at the end of the sentiment strip.

I colored some Rhinestone Basic Jewels with my Dark Mango Melody Stampin’ Blend and added one to each of the flowers – and the card front was done!

For the back, I matted two pieces of plaid Berry Delightful DSP on Flirty Flamingo and adhered them to the side panels.  I added a second Sweet Strawberry sentiment and some flowers and leaves to a Basic White Panel.

The flowers and leaves are in the same colors as the ones on the front.  I colored a medium sized Rhinestone with the Mango Melody blend and adhered it to the larger flower.

 

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Flirty Flamingo mat and onto the back panel and the card was done.

My Basic White Medium Envelope got more Sweet Strawberry flowers and leaves on the front…

…and a little more leafy Berry Delightful DSP on the envelope flap!

Et Voila!  Y’all – there’s no way for me to explain how gorgeous the Berry Delightful DSP is – if you don’t have it – GET IT RIGHT NOW!  Yes – it’s THAT pretty that I have to YELL it!  And – the fact that you can get it for FREE is no small thing. It comes bundled with its own stamp set – called Berry Blessings – and is FREE with a qualifying $100 order during Sale-A-Bration!

Although not bundled together – both the stamp set and the paper (duh!) work perfectly with the Sweet Strawberry Bundle in the Jan – Jun 2021 Mini Catalog!

Et Voila!  I hope you like!

The other day – before the current cold-cycle, it was ALL the way in the high 50’s.

Which is WAY too hot for fur-bucket ponies in full winter regalia!

I thought I got a glimpse of Cady coming up from the back pasture – and she looked suspiciously….drippy.

When they came in that evening….

…It became pretty apparent that she’d been ponding. 😉

Like…all the way in.  Based on the look of her – probably rolling in the pond.

It’s just what she does (I’ve seen her in the pond when it was 35!). 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Heal Your Heart Paper Blooms 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 theme challenge today 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!

We’re all playing with Sale-A-Bration products today and I selected the Heal Your Heart stamp set and the pretty Paper Blooms DSP .  These are both freebies at the $50 level – meaning when you spend $50 (before shipping & tax) you could select either of these products.  Now – fun fact – the Paper Blooms DSP coordinates with the In Bloom Bundle in the Jan – Jun 2021 Mini Catalog.  So….I called that SAB-Adjacent and used it in my card, too!  Take a look-see:

Here’s our challenge badge!

And – I also let the TGIF Challenge give me a hand!

I selected a card on page 3 of the Sale-A-Bration catalog as my inspiration!

I started with a piece of Paper Blooms DSP that I matted on Night of Navy for the card front.  Then I matted a piece of Basic White on Night of Navy and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I used a few of the fun stitched dies in the Pierced Blooms set to cut out some of the flowers in the Paper Blooms DSP.  AND – I used some leaves and flower dies to cut flowers from the DSP in Petal Pink, Soft Sea Foam and Night of Navy.  There’s a design that has big bold circles of color – and you just cut your shapes right out of them!.

Finally, I cut some leaves from Soft Sea Foam cardstock.

On a piece of Soft Sea Foam, I stamped the Heal Your Heart sentiment in Night of Navy and cut it with the label die in Pierced Blooms.  Then I was ready to assemble my collage! 🙂

I started by adhering leaves and a flower with Liquid Glue.  Then I added a Gold Hoop Embellishment with a couple of Glue Dots.

I popped the sentiment on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and kept adding flowers and leaves.  It looked like it needed a bow – so I cut one with the Pierced Blooms die – using the Petal Pink circle of color on the Paper Blooms DSP.  Then I added it with a little Liquid Glue.

I adhered a few little flowers here and there around the collage.

Because I could and I love them so much, I added Champagne Rhinestones to the flower centers – and the center of the bow – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped three In Bloom flowers in Petal Pink on a Basic White panel.  I added a couple of Soft Sea Foam stems and some Night of Navy flower centers.  And…Champagne Rhinestones!  Again…because I COULD! 🙂

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Night of Navy mat and into my Soft Sea Foam card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Basic White Medium Envelope got more In Bloom flowers on the front…

…and a little more of the Paper Blooms DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Isn’t this Paper Blooms DSP pretty?  And the fact that you can cut stitched flowers from it using the Pierced Blooms die set (bundled with the In Bloom stamp set) is a really happy bonus!

And…Heal Your Heart remains one of my favorite sentiment sets!!

I hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix 

Last week when it was well-digger’s-lunch-bucket-cold, I was wearing my heavy gloves to do the horses and the barn in the morning.

And – at some point, apparently, one of them dropped out of my pocket.

So…taking it as a teachable moment…I told Finn to Pick It Up. (Hey – you never know when you might need a dog to pick something up for you for reals!)

Which he did (what a good service-dog-who-isn’t-really-a-service-dog!).

Now – there’s a second part to this behavior – which is (duh) – give. It. To. Me.

You can (almost) literally see him pondering the validity of that request – and the other potential next-steps he could take.

Any guesses what happened next?

Stampin’ Up! CAS Berry Delightful Blessings

Mornin’, y’all!  How goes your week?  We’re enjoying a little warm-snap – which is lovely.  Wayne’s been working up a storm and has 11 of our 12 new barn roll-up doors on – which will be AWESOME – cuz…supposed to be back down into the high 20’s on Thursday! 😉

I have a clean-and-simple card for you today.

I know – I know.  Not at all what you expect from me, right?  Well – hang on, cuz…I think you’ll like it as much as I do.  It perfectly showcases the gorgeous Berry Blessings Bundle – which you can get for FREE during Sale-a-Bration with a $100 order (not including shipping & tax).  Take a look-see:

See?  Summer-on-a-card! 🙂

The layout is an interesting one from the MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge.

This is a PERFECT little card to use up scraps that you’ve got sitting around.  And your Stamparatus if you wanted to make multiples! 🙂

I started by cutting a piece of the Berry Delightful DSP into three 1/2″ wide strips.  Then I matted each of them on 5/8″ wide Granny Apple Green.  These started out at about 4″ – and then got trimmed down.

I pulled out a Basic White panel and arranged my three matted-strips in place – keeping them in order so the pattern would match up.  Then, using them as reference, I stamped the Berry Blessings sentiment in Poppy Parade.

I adhered the matted strips in place with Liquid Glue.  Then, using my Paper Trimmer – I cut the excess off the right side of the panel.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Granny Apple Green mat.

And….uhm….the card front was done! 😉

On the inside, I used Granny Apple Green to stamp the outline leaves images from Berry Blessings, then filled them with Granny Apple Green.  I also stamped a couple of stems.  Then I added Poppy Parade berry outlines and fills.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Granny Apple Green mat and into my Poppy Parade card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Basic White Medium Envelope got more Berry Blessings berries and leaves on the front…

…and more of the wunnermus Berry Delightful DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  There is truly NOTHING to not-love about this amazing Berry Blessings Bundle, right?  It’s really stunning – with the Berry Delightful DSP bringing summer cheer to all your projects!!

I hope you like and are figuring how to add this bundle to your stash (if you haven’t already!).

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

Finn Fan Fix 

Finn doesn’t always get on the sofa.

Well – not when I’m on it.  He’s almost always on it in the morning. 😉

But, the other night, he hopped up and – apparently – had something he wanted to discuss.

But – it turned out all he really wanted to do was “help” me work on my blog! 🙂

Looks like he approves of my card!
