Stampin’ Up! Wildly Happy Video Tutorial Sneak Peek

Morning, y’all!  Welcome to the weekend!  GA is officially locked down.

I DID go to Sam’s yesterday – I HAD to have my bags of shredded lettuce.  It’s a mainstay of my diet program and…I gotta come out the other side of this still maintaining my weight.  So…needs must.  I was masked and armed with a huge bottle of Lysol Wipes.  Wiped everything as I took it off the shelf, scanned the barcode (to avoid the nasty cash register area), tucked each item into one of my Thirty One Totes that I’d placed in the basket, wiped it all AGAIN as I put it in the car.  Sprayed the totes with Lysol when I got home.  Shucked my clothes at the washer and took a shower.

I’m trying not to buy into the whole “cray cray” but…I’m definitely nibbling at the edges! 😉

So…tonight, let’s get together on Facebook – I’ll go live at 7pm Eastern, over on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page.  We’ll make a sweet and easy little new baby card, using the Wildly Happy stamp set (from the Annual Catalog).  Take a sneaky peek!

Yep – it’s in one of my fave color schemes!

Hope you’ll be able to join me.

Tonight.  7pm eastern.  Right here.

Stampin’ Up! Stylish Ornate Garden Sneak Peek for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hey y’all – it’s Thursday, so it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!!  Today’s a sketch challenge – 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!

The sketch this week was pretty wide open, so I figured I’d give you another want-it-whetter from the new Early Release Ornate Garden Suite!  I used the Ornate Thanks and Ornate Style stamp sets, a little Ornate Garden Specialty DSP and….my new favorite die set – Stitched So Sweetly.  Take a look see:

And here’s that sketch – maybe you’ll want to use it to jump-start your creative mojo!

Although it’s not an Easter card, I used the color palette from this week’s Sunday Stamps challenge.

I started with some Old Olive paper (the foiled design) from the Ornate Garden Specialty DSP.  Across the bottom I adhered a strip of non-foiled Old Olive paper with Liquid Glue.  Across the seam, using a little SNAIL and a couple of Glue Dots on the back, I ran a length of Terracotta Tile (I sort of interpreted that brownish color in the palette as Terracotta Tile!) ribbon from the Ornate Garden Ribbon Combo Pack.

I matted the whole thing on Pumpkin Pie to make the card front.

On a piece of Whisper White, in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, I used my Stamparatus to stamp the large floral image from the Ornate Style stamp set.

I used my Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie and Night of Navy Stampin’ Blends Combo Packs to color all the flowers except the two daisies.  Those I colored with my Pumpkin Pie Watercolor Pencil.

I added a large sentiment from Ornate Thanks in Pumpkin Pie and the smaller sentiment in Terracotta Tile.  Then I cut the image and sentiment with the largest rectangle die in the Stitched So Sweetly die set.

In the corner, I added a flourish from Ornate Style in Old Olive.  Then I popped the panel onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I tied a double length simple bow from the Terracotta Tile ribbon and adhered it with a Glue Dot.

I added some Pumpkin Pie gems from the Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the Night of Navy flowers.  A blue gem from the same Rhinestone pack finished off the card front.

On the inside, I added a Pumpkin Pie-matted strip of the Ornate Garden Specialty DSP across the bottom of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped a couple more Old Olive flourishes, too.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Pumpkin Pie mat and into my Old Olive card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got two more Old Olive flourishes on the front…

…and more of the foiled Ornate Garden Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  The Ornate Garden Suite is coming SOON – like…next week!  The anchoring bundles – Ornate Style (with the bundled Ornate Layers Die set) and Ornate Thanks (bundled with Ornate Borders) are wonderful and perfectly complement the coordinating Ornate Garden Specialty DSP!  Isn’t it exciting to be able to play with a 2020-2021 Annual Catalog Suite EARLY!?

I hope you like and are making plans to add the whole suite to your stash!

Stampin’ Up! Ornate Garden Thoughtful Blooms 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 Sketch Challenge from Claire this week and it’ll for sure jump-start your creative mojo!  I hope you’ll come and play along.  🙂

If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video, I appreciate you spending some of your weekend with me!  If not, but you’d like to see the replay on YouTube…here ’tis!

I saw a super cute fun-fold over on my friend Karen Ksenzakovic’s blog – you can check out her gorgeous version right here – and decided to CASE the fold!  I used the soon-to-be-available Ornate Garden Suite goodies.  Take a look-see:

And here’s this week’s Paper Players CAS challenge!  Join the fun and show us your projects!  I can’t wait to see what you create!  🙂

 

I started with a piece of Early Espresso card stock, 4 1/4″ x 11″ that I scored with my Simply Scored Tool at 2 1/4″, 3 5/8″, 7 3/8″ and 8 3/4″.  Then I folded and burnished each score line – starting with a “valley” fold at 2 1/4″, mountain at 3 5/8″ and 7 3/8″, and finishing up with another valley at 8 3/4″.  And that was the entire fun-fold…done!

To decorate, I matted two pieces of Ornate Garden Specialty DSP on Terracotta Tile and adhered them with Liquid Glue to the two side panels.

For the middle panel, I used a different design in the DSP pack, also matted on Terracotta Tile.  With SNAIL and Glue Dots, I adhered two lengths of Old Olive ribbon (from the new Ornate Garden Ribbon Combo Pack – coming on 1 April).

I stamped the pretty flower corner image from the new Ornate Style set in Early Espresso on a piece of Whisper White.  The image is colored with my Mint Macaron and Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blends Combos and the Dark Daffodil Delight Blend.

I added the large sentiment from Ornate Thanks in Terracotta Tile – then two more in Early Espresso.  Then I cut the image with the second-to-largest rectangle die in the awesome Stitched So Sweetly Die set.

On another piece of Whisper White, I stamped flowers from the Thoughtful Blooms stamp set (FREE with a $50 purchase during Sale-A-Bration) in Terracotaa Tile (full strength and stamped-off-once) and Crushed Curry (the same).  Then I cut them all out with the Small Bloom Punch (FREE with a $100 purchase during Sale-A-Bration).

The little leaves die cuts are actually the NEGATIVE space that was left over from cutting one of the Ornate Borders die cuts from a piece of Mint Macaron.

I laid all the pieces out, then began to adhere the leaves and flowers with Liquid Glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I popped the sentiment on with Dimensionals on the left side of the rectangle.  Finally, I added some Gold Metallic Pearls to the flower centers, popped the whole thing on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card front was done!

On the back, I adhered two more Terracotta Tile-matted pieces of Ornate Garden Specialty DSP on the side panels.  On a piece of Whisper White, I stamped and colored the Ornate Style flower image.  I added another sentiment from Ornate Thanks in Terracotta Tile.

I adhered the panel to a Terracotta Tile mat and into the middle of the fun-fold card, and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another Ornate Style flower on the front…

…and a little more Ornate Garden Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Isn’t this a fun fun-fold??  Super easy and awesome to look at – and it all fits perfectly in a regular Medium (A2) envelope!  I love the Ornate Garden Suite with it’s Ornate Style and Ornate Thanks bundles anchoring the gorgeous paper.

Be looking for those – and all the goodies – in the Ornate Garden Suite on 1 April.  I hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix


These are scary times.  I’m not going to fib you – I’m a little freaked out some days.

So – when I get that way, it helps to have my dig-dog.  The Finn-ster.  The Finny-winny.  The Finn-man.  The Finny-Bo-Binny.  The dog-a-lous.

Yes.  He’s embarrassed to admit he answers to all of the above.

Usually.

But – regardless of what I call him – he makes me smile and usually makes me feel better.

So…I wanted to share a little Finn-man cuteness.

To help us put everything into paw-spective.

Behold.

From above – this was all I could see of him….just some cute paws.

Do you think that as dogs get older – they get extra hair on their toes?  Like…we sometimes do??

That is NOT loose fur – that’s toe-feathers!! 🙂

Hope you had a minute of aaaahhhhhhhh…..

Stampin’ Up! Ornate Style with Thoughtful Blooms Sneak Peek

Good morning, y’all!  Hope you’ve got a great weekend at home planned!  This is our “planting” weekend – we got the peppers, tomatoes and lettuce starts in the beds last night.  The rose, raspberries and blueberries are soaking their roots in preparation for planting.  And – I’ve got flowers started to put in, too!  AND – more seeds coming soon!  I LOVE spring!

Also?  My three hydrangeas all have leaves, so…I didn’t kill them with my not-so-knowledgeable pruning this past fall!  Whoo-hoo.  I’m like…almost a Master Gardener.  Go me! 🙂

Since it’s Saturday, I figured we’d try to get together tonight on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page for a little video time together.  So…I’ll be live at 7pm Eastern and we’ll make a fun-fold that I blatantly stole from my teammate.  We’re going to take a look at the new Ornate Garden Suite…and Thoughtful Blooms.  Yes – I’m seriously in a flowerdy mood.  Take a sneaky peek!

It’s a super easy fun fold – and the Ornate Garden Suite really makes it a stand-out!  So…I hope you can join me!

Tonight.  7pm Eastern.  Right here! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Ornate Garden Thanks Sneak Peek

Happy Happy Haawwwwmmmp DAY!!!  Hope you’re enjoying your Social Distancing.

Let me re-phrase.  I hope you are DOING your Social Distancing.

Seriously.  Do it! 😉

While you’re distancing yourself in our efforts to flatten the curve, I hope you’re doing some crafting.  And…looking forward to the cool Early Release of the Ornate Garden Suite.  It’s a new suite coming in the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.  And…Stampin’ Up! is letting us play with it early!  Demonstrators are already having fun with it – customers will get your chance on 1 April!

In an effort to fan the flames of your excitement – and also cuz it’s COOL!! – I played with the Ornate Style and Ornate Thanks Bundles, plus the gorgeous Ornate Garden DSP and Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder for today’s card.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from this week’s TGIF Challenge.

I started with a piece of the Ornate Garden DSP that I matted on Terracotta Tile for the card front.  Then I cut a smaller piece of Blushing Bride with the edge die in the Ornate Borders die set (which is bundled with the Ornate Thanks stamp set).

I embossed the die cut panel in the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

For the sentiment, I stamped the larger word from Ornate Thanks in Old Olive on a piece of Whisper White.  Above that, in Terracotta Tile, I added the smaller sentiment.  Isn’t that font wunnermus?  I love it!

I used the rectangle die in the Ornate Layers Dies (bundled with the Ornate Style set) to cut the sentiment.  Since the die is longer than I wanted my sentiment, I ran it thru my die cutting machine a couple of times to make it shorter.

I popped the sentiment onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I pulled out the Cherry Blossoms Dies and used the leaves cut-and-emboss dies to cut Mint Macaron and Old Olive Leaves.  With the flower dies from the Ornate Borders set, I cut some Blushing Bride and Whisper White flowers.  Then I adhered them into little flower stacks with Liquid Glue.

I laid out all the flowers and leaves and took my picture…

I used Liquid Glue to adhere all the leaves in place.  The flower stacks all have little pieces of Stampin’ Dimensional and Liquid Glue to adhere them.

I added a Gilded Gem (part of the Ornate Garden Suite) to the middle of each flower stack and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added another Ornate Thanks sentiment to a Whisper White panel in Old Olive.  I stamped a couple of the floruishes from Ornate Style in the corners in Terracotta Tile.  Across the bottom I adhered a Terracotta Tile mat and a strip of the Ornate Garden DSP.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Terracotta Tile mat and into my Blushing Bride card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Ornate Style flourishes in Terracotta Tile on the front…

…and more of the Ornate Garden DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I love this Ornate Garden Suite – the two bundles that anchor it – Ornate Style and Ornate Thanks – are wonderful and complement each other perfectly!

Add these elements to the Ornate Garden DSP – and you’ve got projects galore just waiting for you to create them!  I hope you like….and are counting the days until you can get this suite for yourself!

Stampin’ Up! Daisy Lane Ornate Garden Treat Basket – with Video Tutorial!

Good Friday morning, y’all!!  I feel obligated to say….stop touching your face and wash your hands.

There.  Public Service Announcement….DONE!

If you were able to join me for my YouTube Live Video yesterday –  I appreciate you spending some of your day with me!  If not, but you’d like to see the replay on YouTube…here ’tis!

I got the idea for this sweet treat basket from my friend Sue Prather – who gave all of us one last weekend at our Spring STAMPede event!

This is so easy. 🙂

Where Sue used some Best Dressed DSP, I used some of the Ornate Garden Specialty DSP – from the Early Release Ornate Garden Suite (which y’all can get on 1 April – or NOW if you decide to join the team).  I decorated mine with sweet Daisy Lane flowers.  Take a look-see:

With my Simply Scored board, I scored at 2″ and 4″ on one side of the 6″ x 6″ piece of DSP – rotated the paper 90 degrees (doesn’t matter which way) – and scored again at 2″ and 4″.

Next, I used my Paper Snips to cut from the edge of the paper to the crossing score line.  I did that on two opposing sides.  As shown by the dotted lines below.

When I was done snip-snipping, my paper looked like this:

I placed Tear-and-Tape Adhesive on the inside of the DSP on opposite corners…

Then I removed the tape and brought the tips of the outside corners together – tucking the center square panel on the inside.

The end result…

I used some Liquid Glue to adhere the inside flap so that it would help to make everything more secure and tidier! 🙂

Ready to decorate!

I used a length (about 7 1/2″) of 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim (from the Tropical Oasis Suite) for the handle – using a craft stapler to adhere it on the inside of the basket at the points.

On a piece of Whisper White, I stamped two each of the large and small daisies from the Daisy Lane set in Daffodil Delight.  Then I punched them with the Daisy Punch and the Medium Daisy Punch.

 

With the Leaf Punch, I punched three Mint Macaron and three Old Olive leaves.  I creased each little leaf with my fingers and adhered three each on both sides of the basket with Liquid Glue.

I popped the small daisies atop the large daisies with a Stampin’ Dimensional.  Then I adhered them over the top of the leaves with Liquid Glue.

A Perennial Essence Flower Center in the middle of each daisy finished off my Spring Baskets!

Et Voila!  These little baskets are so cute and so easy and…how many ways can you think of to use them?  Mother’s Day?  Easter Brunch?  May Day?  Baby Shower?  Bridal Shower?  Think of all the gorgeous papers we have to choose from and the myriad of decorative options we’ve got with Stampin’ UP!  The Daisy Lane and two Daisy Punches are spot-on-perfect for any and everything Spring-y!!  And…the paper.  The Ornate Garden Specialty DSP is gorgeous!!  I hope you like – and will give these a try right now!!

Yesterday we started hardening the transplants.

Toted all the little trays and water-bottle “pots” to just outside the garage door for a little while in the afternoon.  Gotta toughen up the plants in preparation for going in the beds!!

And I cut some daffodils (and a couple of tulip tree flowers!!)

It’s just the best time of year, isn’t it?!?

Finn supervised from the golf-cart.

That’s kind of his jam.  Supervising.

If he had actual hands – not adorable paw-hands, he’d be holding a coffee cup in one hand and have the other in his pocket in the ways of site supervisors the world over.

No offense to site supervisors! 😉

Stampin’ Up! Ornate Style Sneak Peek 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 Celebrate Spring!  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!

Park.  Territorial.  Burpee’s.  Johnny’s.  Those names sound familiar to you?  Well – if they do, then you understand the terrible and wonderful temptation that comes every spring in the mailbox.  SEED CATALOGS!  Filled with page after page of flowers and vegetables and herbs, just waiting for a gardening genius like myself to plant them and bring their bounty to life.  When the catalogs arrive, I am suddenly and acutely struck with a GREEN THUMB fantasy.  In this fantasy – I plant all the beautiful flowers I see in all the seed catalogs.  They’re all in JUST the right place to get the right sun, I’ll weed them every day, water when they require it, deadhead to ensure bountiful flowers….on and on and on.  And – I’ll cut bundles and oodles of beautiful blooms that I will then artfully arrange in one of my many shabby chic farmhouse-perfect flower holders that are stored in my perfect pantry…..

And then?  I realize…I better put my spring flowers on a card.  Cuz…THAT, I really CAN do.  And that’s what I did for you today.  I put some new Ornate Garden Specialty DSP to work with daisies from the new Ornate Style stamp set and a few die cut beauties from the Ornate Layers Die set.  Take a look-see:

Now – this Ornate Garden Suite will be available to y’all on 1 April (no joke!).  Or…you COULD get it right now.  Give me a shout if you’d like to find out how!

This is a fun-fold card, but the layout for the front is inspired by the CAS(E) This Sketch challenge this week.

I started by cutting the Old Olive card base to 5 1/2″ x 7 1/2″  and scoring it at 3 1/4″.   That makes the front of the card just 3 1/4″ wide.

I matted a piece of the Ornate Garden Specialty DSP on Terracotta Tile and adhered it to the small card front with Liquid Glue.

With a die in the new Ornate Layers Die set, I cut a rectangle frame from Terracotta Tile.

Using Liquid Glue on the left side of the die – to about 1″ from the right edge – I adhered the die cut to the card front, letting the edge hang over as you can see in the photo above.  Be sure not to get glue on the exposed part of the die cut – if you do, wipe it with a damp cloth quickly, or wait until it dries and rub it off with a gum eraser! 🙂

On a piece of Whisper White, I stamped a daisy from the Ornate Style stamp set (part of the new Suite coming on 1 April!) in Tuxedo Black.  I started with the flower in the middle.  Then I added the second flower on the right.

I fussy cut two masks of the image from sticky notes and covered the first two flowers before adding the third (the one on the left).

I picked up the masks and colored the leaves with my Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Combo Pack.  For the flowers, I used my So Saffron Combo Pack – only coloring the middle and about half of each petal.  I also used my Light Mango Melody Blend near the middle.  Finally, I used the Color Lifter to blur the edges of the colored parts of the petals. The panel is adhered with Liquid Glue.

For the sentiment, I stamped the large sentiment from Ornate Thanks in Old Olive on a piece of Whisper White.  Using the “I’m” and “for all your help” sentiment images, I added them in Terracotta Tile, tucked right up to the first sentiment.

I used the long rectangle die in the Ornate Layers Die set to cut the sentiment and then popped it on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  And that was it for the card front!

On the inside, I added another Ornate Thanks sentiment in Old Olive on a Whisper White panel.  Over the top, in stamped-off-once Tuxedo Black, I added the daisy image.  I used just the Light So Saffron Blend and a smidge of Light Mango Melody Blend to lightly color just the flower.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Terracotta Tile mat and into the Old Olive card base and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got the daisy in full-strength Tuxedo Black and colored with the Blends on the front…

…and a little more of the Ornate Garden Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  So….are you excited to get the new Ornate Garden Suite – with the beautiful Ornate Thanks and Ornate Style bundles with those wonderful images and die sets??  Between those, and the lovely spring-flower-strewn Ornate Garden Specialty DSP, this suite is one you WILL want!  I promise.  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!  You’ll be able to pick up all the new Suite goodies on 1 April.

Stampin’ Up! Flowering Foils Tags in Bloom!

Happy Happy Hawwwmp Day!!  Hope your week is going swimmingly!

Today is the second day of the Second Release for Sale-A-Bration!  Be sure to check out the five new FREEBIES that you can pick up thru the end of March! 🙂

My card today uses TWO of the new SAB goodies – the Tags in Bloom stamp set (free with a $100 purchase before shipping and tax) and the Flowering Foils Specialty DSP (a level 1 – $50 goody!).  Take a look-see:

The Tags in Bloom stamp set coordinates with the Label My Lovely and Label Me Fancy Punches from the 2020 Jan – Jun Mini Catalog!

The layout for this card was inspired by the sketch at CAS(E) This Sketch this week!

I started with a panel of Mint Macaron that I embossed in the Basket Weave 3D Embossing Folder and matted on Melon Mambo for the card front.

I picked a flower-strewn design from the  Flowering Foils Specialty DSP and used my Stampin’ Blends Combo Packs in Petal Pink, Mint Macaron and Lovely Lipstick to color the flowers, leaves and berries.  Then I adhered the panel to the card front with Liquid Glue.

The strip across the middle is a piece of Mint Macaron Subtles 6″ x 6″ DSP, matted on Mint Macaron and adhered with Liquid Glue.

Then I added a Pearlized Doily with more Liquid Glue.

On a piece of Whisper White, I stamped the sentiment from Tags in Bloom in Melon Mambo.  Around it, I stamped the stitched label image in Mint Macaron.  Then I punched it out with the Label Me Lovely punch.  I popped the label onto the Doily with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a Melon Mambo gem from the Noble Peacock Rhinestones and the card front was done.  Easy and also…peasy! 😉

On the inside, I added a second sentiment from Tags in Bloom in Melon Mambo to a Whisper White panel.  In the corner, I stamped the flowers and leaf from the set.  For the flowers, I used full-strength Petal Pink or Melon Mambo for the outline images – and stamped-off-once versions of the same colors for the fill images.  The leaf is done in full-strength Mint Macaron.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Melon Mambo mat and into my Whisper White card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whsiper White Medium Envelope got more of the Tags in Bloom flowers and leaf on the front…

…and more of the Mint Macaron DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I love this Tags in Bloom set – and love it even more for coordinating with TWO punches from the Mini Catalog (and those punches are already in perfect coordination with the wonderful Layered With Kindness stamp set from the Mini!

The Flowering Foils Specialty DSP is gorgeous and perfect for coloring – you’ll get 12 one-sided pieces of 12″ x 12″ paper in the pack with your $50 purchase!

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!

Don’t forget that I’m giving DOUBLE Peppermint points this week – you can earn free Sale-A-Bration goodies AND get to your Peppermint Reward gift TWICE as fast.  Winner winner!!

Stampin’ Up! Beautifully Braided Video Sneak Peek

Happy Weekend!  And…happy leap day!

So – here’s my question.  If you were born on this day….do you do birthdays EVERY year or just every four years?  And if you do every year – when?  If you only do every four years – are you a quarter as old as the rest of us?  Like….a dog year is seven human years….is a leap birthday year like four regular birthdays??

Yikes – it’s like time travel – easy to get me all bamboozled!  However it works – if you were born on 29 Feb – Happy Birthday!

I am going to celebrate Leap Year Day with a card. I know!  Cray Cray!!

I’m going to go live tonight at 7pm Eastern on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page.  We’re going to make a cool card using the Beautifully Braided stamp set.  Take a sneaky peek.

It’s a cool card (she says modestly), so…I hope you can join me!

Tonight.  7pm Eastern.  Right here!

  • Coordinating Colors: Balmy Blue, Basic Gray, Calypso Coral, Grapefruit Grove, Gray Granite, Pear Pizzazz, Petal Pink, Shaded Spruce, and So Saffron.

Stampin’ Up! Welcome Easter Video Sneak Peek

Happy weekend, y’all!  For some of you – I hope for a LOT of you! – this is a LONG weekend to celebrate all the Presidential birthdays.

Hmmm.  I’m sort of glad most of us don’t get “lumped” into a single birthday, aren’t you?!?

To celebrate their birthdays (not really – but it’s the only gift I’ve got!), I’ll be going live tonight at 7pm Eastern on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page.  Yes, for a minute I’ll keep doing our Saturday videos on Facebook….eventually that may transition to YouTube like our mid-week vids!  For tonight, we’re going to make a sweet little birthday card using the Welcome Easter set (2020 Jan – Jun Mini Catalog) and the Happy Birthday To You set from the first Sale-A-Bration release.  Take a sneaky peek:

It’s a cutie and I think you’ll like it – so I hope you’ll be able to join me!

Tonight.  7pm Eastern.  Right here!

Welcome to our classroom!

The Equipment.

The ball.  Not quite tall enough (I don’t’ think) but…will work to start!

We’ve also got a clicker and a treat pouch loaded with yummy things.

And a purple sticky note as a “target” (Sticky notes – what would I do without them?!?).  UNDER the sticky note is a little smear of….peanut butter.

The Student.

 

Nose-on ball.  Click.

Nose not on ball.  No Click.

Click.

No click.

Repeat until 1) the treats run out or….

…the student leaves to get a drink!  School is thirsty work!

Boring stuff but…the start of learning to “push”! 😉
