Okay – now that you’re back – I hope that you can join me tonight – I’ve got a pretty card with a wildly gorgeous new bundle in the Aug – Dec 2020 Mini Catalog to share with you!  I’ll be live at 7pm Eastern on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page.  Take a sneaky peek!

Stampin’ Up! In the Pines Bundle Sneak Peek Fun Fold with Video Tutorial

Happy Friday, y’all!  I hope you’ve had a wonderful week – we’ve been in the tropical storm pattern all week.  Muggy.  Hot.  Rain every day.

Guess how well our lavender plants are doing?

If you guessed…not so well, then…you are correct!  We’ve got as much drainage as we could manage but…the little babies are struggling with their wet feet.

They may have trench foot.  Hmm.  Maybe I need to sprinkle some Dr. Scholl’s foot powder on them? 🤔🤔🤔

Or not….

So, if you were able to join me yesterday for my YouTube live, I appreciate you spending some time with me – if not, but you’d like to see the replay, here ’tis! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Heartwarming Hugs Tree Angle Sneak Peek

Happy happy HAWWWWMP day!!  And happy can-you-even-believe-it’s-practically Christmas day??

Yeah.  That’s not a real thing but…serious.  Can you believe the year is half over?  I mean – 2020 can just go ahead and get gone, but…wow.  It’s flying!

Now – I mentioned Christmas cuz I’m playing with a Christmas theme today with my card.  There’s a bundle in the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog called The Right Triangle – and I bought it specifically so I’d have the Stitched Triangles Dies that are part of the bundle.  I NEEDED those cuz of the Tree Angle stamp set in the Aug – Dec 2020 Mini Catalog.  That one really caught my eye – although it’s kind of a flyover set and one you may have thumbed right by!  I combined it with some homey-cozy paper from the Heartwarming Hugs DSP.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Gather Together Video Sneak Peek

Good Morning, y’all!  Happy weekend to you!  Hope you’ve got something planned.  And hoping that whatever it is is fun!

We have plans to re-introduce the Finn-man to the joys of…a shampoo and blow out.

Which I would like myself!!

But – HE gets it instead.  Got to get some of that hair and that….aroma?…off!!  Going to do it in the barn – versus taking him to Puppy Tubs.  Might regret that decision…. 😉

Tonight – after the spa day – I’ll be going live at 7pm Eastern on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page.  I’ve got a fun card – well, I think it’s fun! – for you using a returning favorite stamp set and die!  Take a sneaky peek.

It’s a good one that’s right in the middle of my wheelhouse so…that’s a pretty good hint for you!

Hope you can join me.

Tonight.  7pm Eastern.  Right here!

So…I’m not saying this is a stand-off in the classic sense.

No guns – no Ok-Corral – no “this town ain’t big enough for the both of us”…

But – there WAS meat involved so…it was tense for a few minutes.l

Stampin’ Up! Many Mates Whale Done Cngrats Card

Happy Monday, y’all!  Sorry to start the week with an oxymoron! 😉

I made a fun Congratulations card for you guys today using the Many Mates (yes – a most-awesome sentiment stamp set!), Whale Done and the Whale of a Time DSP.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from the Mojo Monday sketch challenge.

And I used the inspiration photo from this week’s Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge.

I started with a piece of the wunnermus Whale of a Time DSP that I matted on Calypso Coral for the card front.

Next, I embossed a Whisper White panel in the Seabed 3D Embossing Folder, matted it on Calypso Coral, and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

The horizontal element is another piece of the Whale Done DSP, matted on Calypso Coral and adhered with Liquid Glue.

For the sentiment, I cut a third design of the DSP with the largest square Stitched Shapes Die.  In the corner, in Calypso Coral ink, I added a Many Mates sentiment.  Then I popped the square onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I fussy cut three turtles from one of the DSP designs and adhered the two smaller ones to the sentiment square with Liquid Glue (and a Mini Stampin’ Dimensional to support some of the parts hanging over the edge…). The bottom turtle is popped on with Stampin’ Dimensionals!

I used little dabs of Liquid Glue to adhere a few Whale of a Time Sequins and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a second Many Mates sentiment in Calypso Coral to a Whisper White panel.  Then I stamped the turtle from Whale Done across the bottom of the panel in Granny Apple Green, Pacific Point and Blackberry Bliss.  I added some Pool Party bubbles. 🙂

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Calypso Coral mat and into my Pacific Point card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Whale Done turtles and bubbles across the front…

…and a little more of the Whale of a Time DSP on the envelope flap!

Et Voila!  I love the gorgeous images in the Whale of a Time DSP, don’t you? And fussy cutting the turtles really turned out cute, I think.

Also handy that there’s that cute turtle image in the Whale Done stamp set – making it easy to carry the theme into the inside and onto the envelope!  Many Mates lends the perfect sentiments to the whole thing! 🙂

I hope you like!

If you want to recreate this card – all the Stampin’ Up! products you need are listed down below along with the card cuts!

We got hay the other day.

You knew that cuz I toldja.

Thought you might like a picture or two of the process.

Once we get the hay home – the real hot and dusty work begins.

Thankfully, Wayne does most of the hard stuff – with the help of the big tractor – complete with A/C and a radio!

Get it off the trailer….

\

Drop it on the ground to get it up on end and then carry it to the barn.

Then he stacks it in  – using that giant tractor like a precision instrument!

Finn – in the meantime – is helping me supervise from the golf cart.  Which has NEITHER A/C nor radio!

Tongue deployed.

The end result is…10 bales in the barn…

…And two more in the hay room!

Will last us close to a year!

Life is good!

Stampin’ Up! Happiest of Birthdays Fun Fold with Video Tutorial for The Paper Players

Hey y’all – it’s Sunday, which means I’ve got another fun challenge for you from the Paper Players – it’s a clean-and-simple theme challenge from Jaydee.  Our theme is CELEBRATION! – which is appropriate since this is The Paper Player’s 500th Challenge!! Whoo-hoo!!  I hope you’ll come and play along to help us celebrate!  🙂

If you were able to join me yesterday for my Facebook Live video, I appreciate you spending some of your weekend with me!  If you weren’t able to watch the live version, but you’d like to see the replay on YouTube…here ’tis!

I picked birthday celebration for my theme – and pulled from the Happiest of Birthdays stamp set for my big bold focal sentiment.  I added it atop some relatively subtle plaid from the new Plaid Tidings DSP – coming on 4 Aug in the Aug – Dec 2020 Mini Catalog!!  Take a look-see:

And here’s our 500th Paper Players challenge badge!

I also pulled a little help for the layout of the smaller “card” on the front of my fun-fold from this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

This is a SUPER easy fun fold, y’all!  It probably looks familiar – cuz I did a similar fold not too long ago, using the Forever Fern Bundle!

For this one, I started with a piece of gorgeous plaid paper from the Plaid Tidings DSP pack that I matted on Misty Moonlight and then adhered to my Bumble Bee card base with Liquid Glue.

I cut a smaller piece of the same plaid and matted it on Misty Moonlight – to make the card front for the small card.

I placed a piece of Whisper White into my Stamparatus and, using the Marker-to-Rubber technique, stamped the Happiest of Birthdays sentiment.  I colored the large letters with my Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Write Marker and used the Pretty Peacock Marker for the small letters.

I used a Stitched Rectangle Die that was the right width – but too long – to cut the sentiment.  I made it smaller by running the cut thru my die cutting machine a second time.  The video shows how to do that – way easier than words would do!  You can scroll thru to about the 14 minute mark! 🙂

I used Liquid Glue to adhere a small strip of Bumble Bee plaid from Plaid Tidings to the bottom of the sentiment, then popped the whole thing onto the small card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a single Bumble Bee 2020-2021 In Color Enamel Dot – and the small card front was done.

For the inside, I matted another strip of the Bumble Bee Plaid Tidings DSP on Misty Moonlight and then adhered it to a Whisper White panel.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Misty Moonlight mat and into the small Bumble Bee card base – then I adhered that whole little card to the larger card base – offset to the left – with Liquid Glue – and the fun-fold card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another fun sentiment from Happiest of Birthdays on the front – in Pretty Peacock ink…

…and more of the blue-toned Plaid Tidings DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  The Happiest of Birthdays stamp set is perfect for clean-and-simple cards – the big bold sentiments really do all the work!  It’s also handy to have a cute sentiment for those SO FEW times you MIGHT be a little-bit-late with a card! 😉

And – Stampin’ Up! heard us when we asked for MORE PLAID!!  The new Plaid Tidings DSP is gorgeous!!

I hope you like!

If you want to recreate this card – all the Stampin’ Up! products you need are listed down below along with the card cuts!  And – of course, you can get a taste of the Plaid Tidings DSP in one of my Aug – Dec 2020 Mini Catalog Shares!

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 2020 Aug – Dec Mini Catalog Shares are Open!

If you’ve been anxiously awaiting word on my Catalog Shares – here ’tis!

If you do NOT know what a “catalog share” is – it’s….sort of like your first run thru a Cruise Ship buffet.  There’s a TON to choose from – so you try a little dab of everything!  Then you know what to go back to for a second helping. 🙂

In the same vein – a catalog share gives you a chance to try a sample of all the new products in the catalog – and then you can see what you love and go back and purchase full packs of those goodies!

So – you can try a little bit of the beautiful new Designer Series Papers, specialty papers and envelopes, plus fun embellishments with one of my Catalog Shares! I’ll place our Shares order first jump out of the box on 4 Aug 20 and use expedited shipping so I get it back fast!  Then I’ll get it all cut up, packaged and out the door quick as I can – as early in the week of the 10th as I can manage!

Once again, I’m offering a Designer Series Paper share and an Embellishment share with all sorts of fun new goodies!

I’ve got a few options for you to pick from:  a New Designer Series Paper Share, a New Embellishments Share, and an I Want It All Share (this one gets a free extra bonus!!).  And there are even DOUBLE shares, too!

Shares are open to anyone – including demonstrators, so…check it out and get signed up before 2 Aug using the form you’ll find on my Stamps-N-Lingers 2020 Aug – Dec Mini Catalog Shares page!


Bonus Days are here again! For every $50 (before shipping and tax) you spend between today and 3 August, you earn a $5 Bonus Days coupon code that can be redeemed between 4 August and 30 August.  Whoo-hoo!! There are so many amazing, new products on your wish list – buy lots of them in July so you can complete your list in August with your pile of freebie coupons. Winner Winner Fried-Chicken-with-no-Calories Dinner!

For every order you place, you’ll receive an email with your Bonus Days coupon codes. Don’t lose these codes!!

Write them down, print them out or save them in a handy spreadsheet. That way, you’ve got everything you need to redeem the credits in August.  Have I said…WHOO-HOOO


Down to one shelf!  But – there’s plenty left – so…help me wipe the shelf clean, okay?

I’ve got the remaining list over on the original post – right here – and I’m pretty sure it’s current and up-to-date (not a 99% sure – maybe….96.7%?!?).

Check it out – get all the deets – and then let me know what you’d like!

Stampin’ Up! Plaid Tidings Happiest of Birthdays Video Tutorial Sneak Peek

Good morning and welcome to the weekend!

We’ve got a few errands – all masked up, thank you very much.  And then this afternoon, if we can beat the rain, it’s time to get a load of hay for the ladies!  Getting hay in when it’s a million degrees with the same humidity?  Oh yes – horse ownership is a glamorous life, indeed! 😉  But – the sense of well being that comes from a barn full to the rafters with round bales of good horse hay…can’t be beat for a horse owner.  So – we’ll get it done.

Thank GOODNESS for heavy equipment.  That’s all I have to say about that! 🙂

Now this evening, after all that is done – and hopefully after a shower – 😳😳😳 – I’m planning to go live at 7pm eastern over on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page.  I’ve got a fun project for you using the Happiest of Birthdays stamp set….take a sneaky peek!

Okay – it’s a fun fold.  You wore me down! 😉

Hopefully you’ll be able to join me to see it play out in the gorgeous Plaid Tidings DSP!

Tonight.  7pm Eastern.  Right here!

On Friday – we took a big excursion to the bank to cash a check.

It’s about 5 miles round trip.  And that includes the 1/3 mile of driveway!!

But – when asked, Finn enthusiastically agreed that a quick trip to the bank was just the thing for a too-hot-for-furry-dogs Friday.

So…we all piled into the van and headed out.

Why did he want to go?

Well – any ride  – any time  – anywhere is sort of his motto.

Also?  The teller ALWAYS passes a milk bone for him.

Any bone – any time – anywhere.

See a pattern?

We left the window down some for him on the way home.

He likes that a lot!

If you look close in this next one – you can see his lips blowing in the breeze.

That’s how you know it’s been a good ride.

Your lips get blown!
