Stampin’ Up! Color & Contour Days to Remember Sneak Peek with Video Tutorial

Morning, y’all – happy Friday!  We’re headed into another weekend – yeah!

If you were able to join me yesterday for my YouTube live, I appreciate you spending part of your day with me.  If not, but you’d like to check it out, here’s the replay on YouTube! 🙂

So I used a stamp set that looks like it would be complicated and confusing if you just look at it in the catalog.  The Days to Remember set is a genius way to make a calendar for any month of any year!  And I paired it with the super pretty Hand-Penned DSP and the Color & Contour stamp set with the wonderful, bundled Scalloped Contours dies.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one was inspired by the sketch at this week’s Paper Players challenge.

I started with some pretty floral Hand-Penned DSP and matted it on Misty Moonlight for the card front.  Then I matted a strip of a second design on Misty Moonlight and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

On a piece of Basic White, I stamped the days-of-the-week image from Days to Remember in Misty Moonlight.  I added “May” in Mint Macaron.  Then, in Bumble Bee ink, I stamped the days.  It’s hard to explain how to do that – so…check out the video, okay?  I show that particular piece starting at around 4:30 in. 😉

Then I cut the calendar out with the next-to-largest die in the Scalloped Contours set.

I used the little circle image from the stamp set in Misty Moonlight to highlight the day I wanted to…you know…remember! 😉

Then I stamped the larger sentiment in Misty Moonlight and popped the panel onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I used the two flower images in Color & Contour – stamping them both in Mint Macaron on Basic White.  Then I cut it with the die in the Scalloped Contours set.

You can see how I’ve used a permanent marker to identify the “top” of the two stamps and the die.  You should be able to add a similar mark to your set – and that’ll make it easy-peasier to line everything up!

I added the flower to the card with some Liquid Glue.

To finish – I used a Glue Dot to adhere a Pale Papaya Loose Flower Flourish to the top of the calender and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped a second Days to Remember sentiment in Misty Moonlight on Basic White.  Then I added the flowers again in Mint Macaron and a single Pale Papaya Genial Gem (coming on 4 May!).

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Misty Moonlight mat and into my Mint Macaron card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Basic White Medium Envelope got another Color & Contour flower on the front…

…and more of the Hand-Penned DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Y’all – I promise that this stamp – which made me totally scratch my head when I looked at it in the catalog – is not nearly as whoo-whoo sci-fi as it looks.  Although it IS pretty darned genius! Days to Remember can help you make mini calendars – cool scrapbook pages – and amazing cards!  And Color & Contour, with the wunnermus Scalloped Contours die set is…one of my favorite new goodies!

I hope you like!

Yesterday was National Peace Rose Day.

Yes.  That’s a thing!

Mine decided to get in on the fun!

Not to be outdone – the lavender is putting on a total show!

Nothing to do with Finn – other than he likes to chase the bumblebees that are enjoying the flowers! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Elegantly Said Sneak Peek 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 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!

I decided to play with the Elegantly Said stamp set for today’s card.  I just got the pretty metallic-foiled Simply Elegant Specialty DSP and made a card with my fave design in the pack!  Take a look-see:

And here’s our hop sketch challenge.

I also played along with the Tic-Tac-Toe challenge.  Went across the middle row.  🙂

I started with a piece of Basic Gray cardstock that I embossed in the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder.  Then I used a Blender Brush to very lightly brush the ridges and swirls of the embossed image with Whisper White Kraft Ink.

I matted the panel on Smoky Slate for the card front.  Using Stampin’ Seal – I adhered a Square Vellum Doily.

I cut my fave design from the Simply Elegant Specialty DSP with a Stitched Rectangle Die and adhered it to the card front with Black Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut a piece of Copper Foil with a smaller Stitched Rectangle Die – embossed it in the Painted Texture folder and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

Using the large foliage die in the Forever Flourishing Die set, I cut a piece of Gold Foil – then adhered the leaves with Liquid Glue.

I tied a small simple bow with the Silver twine from the new Simply Elegant Trim pack and adhered it with a Glue Dot.

I placed a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock into my Stamparatus and, using the Marker-to-Stamp technique – colored and stamped just the first part of the Elegantly Said sentiment with my Basic Gray Stampin’ Write Marker.  Then I cut it with the Rectangle Stitched Die.

I stamped the Elegantly Said floral image in Smoky Slate over top of the sentiment.  Then I used a couple of Black Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop the sentiment onto the card front.

A few silver Metallic Pearls finished it off!

On the inside, I again used my Stamparatus – this time coloring the SECOND half of the sentiment with my Basic Gray Stampin’ Write Marker and stamped it on a Very Vanilla panel.  I added the floral in Smoky Slate and a single silver Metallic Pearl.

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

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got the Elegantly Said floral on the front in Smoky Slate…

…and more of the Simply Elegant Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This truly IS Simply Elegant paper, is it not?  And the gorgeous images and sentiments in the Elegantly Said bundle complement it perfectly!

I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Quiet Meadow Sneak Peek Triple Panel Card

‘Sup, y’all??  Happy Tuesday!  I hope your week is going well!  Our weather has been…gorgeous!  Warm enough to have the house open all day and night.  Bright sun – the flowers are blooming and I think the strawberries are trying to do their thing!  We planted on Monday and the patio is really starting to be a pretty spot!  And it smells heavenly! 🙂

My card today features its own flowers and is another sneak peek of the Quiet Meadow stamp set – didn’t even need to use the amazing bundled Meadow Dies!  Get this – and the Pansy Petals DSP – just ONE WEEK FROM TODAY!  Whoo-hoo!! Once you have it in hand – I hope you’ll use it to make today’s card. Take a look-see:

The inspiration for this card came from the FUSION challenge this week!

I started with some pretty Pansy Petals DSP in gingham Pale Papaya that I matted on Pale Papaya for the card front.

Next, I cut a narrow panel of Basic White and placed it in my Stamparatus.  I positioned the sweet wildflower image from Quiet Meadow in the Stamparatus and then used the Marker-to-Stamp technique to color the stamp in Poppy Parade and Evening Evergreen using those Stampin’ Write Markers.

I cut the panel into three equal sized panels and adhered them to a Pale Papaya mat.  Hint:  when doing this technique adhere the two end pieces first.  AND – I made the length of the mat an extra 1/8″ longer than usual.

Using the script image in the Quiet Meadow set – I stamped each panel with it in stamped-off-once Pale Papaya.

I adhered the panel to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I stamped the Quiet Meadow sentiment in Poppy Parade on Basic White and cut it with the most narrow Stitched Rectangle Die.  I popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Using a Glue Dot, I adhered a Pale Papaya Loose Flower Flourish (coming on 4 May!) to the sentiment – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I once again used my Stamparatus to stamp the Quiet Meadow image using my Poppy Parade and Evening Evergreen Stampin’ Write Markers.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Pale Papaya mat and into my Evening Evergreen card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Basic White Medium Envelope got a reprise of the Quiet Meadow floral on the front…

…and a little more of the Pansy Petals DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I mentioned at the start that I didn’t need the full Quiet Meadow bundle for this particular card…

…but I’m really glad I have it in my stash.  Those die cuts are AMAZING!  Check out what I did with them in a previous card right here!  I love this Quiet Meadow stamp set (and matching Meadow Dies) so much – and they’re just perfect to pair with the gorgeous, spring-y Pansy Petals DSP!

I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! True Love Pansy Petals Sneak Peek

Good morning and welcome to the week!  Guess what happens one week from today?  That’s 3 May.  Does that date ring a bell??  Yep – you got it.  That’s the last day you’ll be able to order from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog!  So…if there are things you’re wanting – you might want to get busy!

Of course, that means that the day AFTER one week from today….the brand new and amazing 2021-2022 Annual Catalog with be live!  Whoo-hoo!  THAT is the day I’ll be ordering all our share goodies to divide AND all your Special Bundles!  You’ve still got time to get in on both great deals, so…. 😉

My card today features a little already-available and a little coming-next week!  True Love DSP (available right now) sets the stage for Pansy Petals DSP flowers and sweet Pansy Patch sentiments (coming next week)!  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

And the color palette is from the Color Throwdown challenge.

I started with a piece of the True Love DSP and, using a Blending Brush, colored the panel with Crumb Cake ink.  Then I matted it on Poppy Parade for the card front.

I found two likely designs from the new Pansy Petals DSP and cut a Stitched Rectangle die cut from each one.  These are adhered to the front of the card with Liquid Glue.

I adhered a Gold Hoop Embellishment to the card front with a few Glue Dots.

Using the large and small outline die in the Pansy Die Set, I cut three pansies from the Pansy Petal DSP.  I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere one of the larger flowers over the hoop.

I tied a double-loop Linen Thread bow and added it with a Glue Dot.  Then I used double-stacked Dimensionals to add the second large flower.  The final – smallest – flower is adhered with a single Dimensional and a little Liquid Glue.

I stamped the Pansy Patch sentiment in Poppy Parade on a Basic White strip – snipped banner ends and then used a Dimensional under the right side of the strip and Liquid Glue on the left – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a second Pansy Patch sentiment in Poppy Parade on a Basic White panel.  I also used the smaller flower images with Bumble Bee and Pale Papapa ink to add some pansies here and there.  I added some flower centers in Tuxedo Black (there’s a tiny little stamp for that in the set!).

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Poppy Parade mat and into my Crumb Cake card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Basic White Medium Envelope got more Pansy Patch flowers on the front…

…and more of the Pansy Petals DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  That True Love DSP is so cool – I love that you can coordinate it with ANY color just using a Blending Brush and some ink – or Stampin’ Blends or Watercolor Pencils!  And the Pansy Petals set is…amazing!  The gorgeous Pansy Patch flowers and sentiments, perfectly coordinated with the Pansy Dies (which cut flowers right from the Pansy Petals DSP – whoohooo!).

I hope you like! And – don’t forget – the Pansy Patch Bundle and Pansy Petals DSP are just a part of my Special Bundle #3: Let’s Get Floral Bundle.  There are a LOT of other flowery wonders to be found in that one – so be sure to check it out and get your order in!

So – we had a little wind overnight on Saturday.  Had a few trees down when we went out on Sunday morning.

Like…this one across the driveway!


So – Wayne pulled out the chainsaw and the heavy equipment to make it so we could leave if we wanted to.

Well – that set off a firestorm of tree felling and cutting!

Thought you might enjoy seeing my lumberjack at work – TODAY is his birthday!!   😉

Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Earth Beauty of Friendship Sneak Peek with Video Tutorial

Happy half-way-thru-the-weekend!  Hope it’s going well.  Our planting plans were thwarted by rain most of the day on Saturday.  And I suspect we’ll be thwarted by eveything-is-soaking-wet-and-muddy today.  So…another inside-work day for us, I’m guessing.  Bleh. 😉

If you were able to join me yesterday for my Facebook live, I appreciate you spending part of your weekend with me.  If not, but you’d like to check it out, here’s the replay on YouTube! 🙂

 

This card features a sneak peek at the new Beauty of Friendship stamp set with its bundled Beautiful Trees dies – with the Beauty of the Earth DSP taking center stage!  You’ll be able to get all of it starting on 4 May when the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog goes live.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one was inspired by the sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches this week!

I started with some of the Beauty of the Earth DSP that I cut for a card front – then I cut a smooth-side circle from the middle using a Layering Circles Die.

I matted the DSP panel on Misty Moonlight and Cinnamon Cider mats using Liquid Glue.

I matted the DSP circle on scallop-edge die cuts – in Misty Moonlight and Cinnamon Cider – from the Layering Circles dies.  Then I added it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

The Beautiful Trees dies has two rectangular dies for sentiments.  I used the smaller one to cut a wood-grain piece of DSP from the Beauty of the Earth DSP.

I stamped the Beauty of Friendship sentiment in Cajun Craze on a piece of Basic White and cut it with the second rectangle die in the Beautiful Trees dies – then adhered it to the wood rectangle with Liquid Glue.

Now – my trim uses Crumb Cake and White Baker’s Twine from the brand new Baker’s Twine Combo Pack (it has FIVE rolls of twine!!).  I cut about 16″ of each – two in Crumb Cake and one in White.

I tied them together in a knot and then braided it.  When I got done – I used Glue Dots to adhere the “rope” in a figure-8 loop to the card front.

I added a few double-stacked Stampin’ Dimensionals right by the loops and used them to adhere my sentiment to the card front – and that was it!

On the inside, I added a second sentiment from Beauty of Friendship sentiment in Cajun Craze to a Basic White panel.  In the corner, I stamped the tree trunk image in Early Espresso, added the smaller tree top in Cinnamon Cider (this is SUCH a cool image!).  Then I used the little splotches image to stamp all over in Cajun Craze and Misty Moonlight.

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

My Basic White Medium Envelope got the Beauty of Friendship tree on the front…

…and more of the wood-grain Beauty of the Earth DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This Beauty of the Earth suite is so gorgeous  – with the watercolor-inspired images in the DSP and the wonderful sentiments and trees in the Beauty of Friendship stamp set.  And – I haven’t even really gotten busy with the Beautiful Trees dies!

 

I hope you like!  And – if you love this set…check out my Special Bundle #2: It’s a Beautiful World Bundle.

On Friday evening we had our friends Ed, Jan and Lois over for dinner for the first time in….ever?

No – of course not “ever’ – it just really feels that way!

We set up to cook and eat on the patio and God graced us with an absolutely perfect evening!  The weather was spectacular, the company wonderful and the food tasted amazing!  I am very very grateful for this little moment in time!

Finn ALSO had a good time.

In truth – he was sort of a hot mess for the first few minutes (driving home the fact that he needs more outside-world-contact and a bunch of obedience tune-up!!) – but then he settled down to his normal goofy, sweet and laid-back self!

Which is not to say that he wasn’t ALSO checking for any suckers who might have been pulled up to the table!

He also graced us with a glamour shot!

Stampin’ Up! Hand-Penned Petals Sneak Peek Tower Fun Fold Card

Happy Hawwmp Day, y’all!  Thank you to everyone for all the kind words about Katy that you left in the comments and e-mails yesterday.  I truly appreciate each and every one of you! 🙂

My card today is another Tower fun fold – and is the subject of the Wednesday Tutorial over at Split Coast Stampers – complete with a video!  Hope you’ll check it out!

This fun-fold has become one of my faves – it REALLY looks complicated until you sort of “break it down”!  I made one previously with the new Pansy Petals suite (see it – plus a Video Tutorial – right here!) and this one today is another fave – the Hand-Penned Petals stamp set and bundled Penned Flowers Dies, plus the gorgeous Hand-Penned DSP.   Take a look-see:

I started this one with a piece of Pale Papaya card stock (avail on 4 May in the new catalog!) that I scored and cut according to this template, using my trusty Simply Scored Board and Paper Trimmer.

Then I folded the score lines according to this template:

Once it was a “tower” – I began to decorate, using the pretty new Hand-Penned Suite of goodies!

I matted pieces of the new Hand-Penned DSP on Misty Moonlight cardstock and, using Liquid Glue, adhered them to the front and back panels of the card base.

I cut three largest Stitched Shapes squares – two in Misty Moonlight and one in Basic White.  Tip:  if you don’t have the Stitched Shapes set already, it is – SADLY!! – sold out.  You can simply cut 2 5/8″ squares of the cardstock.

I adhered the Misty Moonlight squares to the card front with Liquid Glue – tipping them up into diamonds.

I stamped the Hand-Penned Petals sentiment in Misty Moonlight onto the white square and then adhered it over the other two squares.

On a piece of new Soft Succulent cardstock, I stamped the two-step wildflower image from Hand-Penned Petals in Soft Succulent ink and cut them with the matching die from Penned Flowers.  I adhered them both to the card front with Liquid Glue.

Next, I stamped the large flower image from Hand-Penned Petals in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored it with the new Pale Papaya and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends (avail 4 May) as well as the Daffodil Delight Blends (avail now!).  Then I cut it with its Penned Flowers Die.

I popped the flower onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals, added a Genial Gem (new and available on 4 May!) and the card front was done!

For the back panel, I stamped the flower in Tuxedo Black on a Basic White panel and colored it as I’d done the flower on the front!  I also added another of the Genial Gems – cuz I really really like them!! 😉

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Misty Moonlight mat and onto the back of the card base and the card was done!

My Basic White Medium Envelope got more Hand-Penned Petals flowers on the front…

…and more of the Hand-Penned DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Hard to say what I like better – the cool Tower Fun Fold or the new and wunnermus Hand-Penned Petals Bundle and Hand-Penned DSP!  I think it might be a toss up and have officially decided that I don’t have to choose!  I can love them both!

I hope you like!

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

And – not for nuthin’ – if you’re loving this suite (and…who wouldn’t?!?) then you might want to check out my Bundle #3 – Let’s Get Floral.  You’ll get THIS bundle AND the Pansy Petals Bundle and the Sending Hugs Bundle and a few more goodies – all while saving some green! 😉

So…what’s “off” with this picture?

Those days are over for the Man.  I suspect he’ll lose a pound or two without the purloined cat food! 😉

A silver lining.

Stampin’ Up! Easy Hand-Penned Memories & More Card Sneak Peek with Video Tutorial!

Good morning – hope your weekend is going well!  Our On Tour virtual event yesterday was great – I got some super cool ideas to share with y’all in the coming weeks as the new 2021-2022 Annual Catalog gets closer – so…stay tuned, okay?!

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

I am such a fan of the new Hand-Penned Memories & More Card Pack!  It has so many possibilities for super-easy card making (oh – and it’s ALSO great for scrapbooking! 😉 ) – and it lets you make quick – easy – and WUNNERMUS cards in no time!  For this one, I paired it with some Hand-Penned DSP and a die from the Penned Flowers Dies.  This card pack – as well as the entire Hand-Penned Suite – will be available to customers on 4 May! Take a look-see:

The layout for this one comes from the Mojo Monday sketch challenge!

I started with some pretty Pale Papaya paper from the Hand-Penned DSP that I matted on Garden Green for the card front.  Then I pulled out a second design from the DSP pack and cut the top of the piece with the scalloped die in the Penned Flowers Die set.  Remember – this Penned Flowers will be bundled with the Hand-Penned Petals stamp set.

I adhered the scallop-edge panel onto the bottom of the card front with Liquid Glue.

I pulled two coordinating small panels from the Hand-Penned Memories & More Card Pack and cut them both down a little bit.  Then I adhered the yellow-striped card to the card front at an angle with Liquid Glue.

I popped the second card over the first with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Next, I used some Stampin’ Seal to add a length of Pale Papay 3/8″ Open Weave Ribbon in a loose Z-shape.

I pulled one of the sentiment stickers included in the Hand-Penned Memories & More Card Pack and de-sticky-fied the back.  Tip:  when you’re going to use a sticker and want to pop it on Dimensionals (and who WOULDN’T?!?) – then you want to “dull” the sticky.  Use an Embossing Buddy if you have it to pat the sticky side of the sticker.  Or – tap it on your bare arm or on your jeans!  🙂

Once I de-sticky-fied the label – I popped it over the ribbon with the aforementioned Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a few diamond-shaped Clear epoxy elements from the new Silver & Clear Epoxy Essentials (coming on 4 May in the new catalog) here and there and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added another sticker sentiment – this time using as an actual sticker – on a Basic White panel.  In the corner, I added a floral sticker – it comes in black and white.  I colored it with the Pale Papaya and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends (yes!!  New blends in the new catalog!).

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Garden Green mat and into my Mint Macaron card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Basic White Medium Envelope got another of the Blends-colored floral stickers on the front…

…and added more of the Hand-Penned DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  As someone commented on the Live video – it would be hard to make a NOT-pretty card with the gorgeous Hand-Penned Suite, right??  And the Hand-Penned Memories & More Card Pack is not only gorgeous – it’s handy as all get out!

I hope you like!

Are you having trouble waiting for 4 May to get this Hand-Penned Suite and other goodies from the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog!?

I don’t blame you – I’d have been anxious, too, if I hadn’t already been able to buy all the new things!  Well – let not your heart be troubled!  I can help you pick any of the new Pre-order items – like the Simply Elegant, Hand-Penned, Pansy Petals and Beauty of the Earth Suites…right now!  When you join the Stampin’ Up! Team – you’ll spend just $99 for your Starter Kit and select $125 worth of SU product (including the PRE-ORDER!).  THEN – you’ll get to buy WHATEVER you like with at least a 20% discount.   As always, there’s no obligation, no commitment and NO requirement to sell/blog/do workshops/etc!  Let me help you get started – I’d love to have you on my Critters-N-Creatin’ Krew Team! Get more info here – or…just give me a holler!

Finn Fan Fix 

The other day as I was tidying up the barn aisle – I happened to look up at our Maternity Ward.

And – there she was!

She was – apparently – hoping for her 10 minutes of fame, cuz she hung around for me to fumble my phone out of my pocket – wake it up and get to the camera – aim – focus – click.  She departed immediately thereafter!

And – a little later – I got a glimpse of what she wanted to show me…

Not really their best side, but…they’re young yet.

Guess I need to put the dog bed under the muzzle so that when flying school starts – their first failures won’t be so likely to end in tragedy! 🙁

Stampin’ Up! Quiet Meadow Sneak Peek 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 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!

When I saw this sketch – I remembered the cool wildflower dies in the new Meadow Die Set – which is coming to you on 4 May, bundled with the lovely new Quiet Meadow stamp set – and knew it would be perfect for this sketch.  Take a look-see:

And here’s our sketch!

I used the colors from The Paper Player challenge, too.

I started with a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock that I embossed in the Old World Paper 3D Embossing Folder and adhered to a Merry Merlot mat with Liquid Glue to create the card front.

Next, I used the largest of the circle Stitched Shapes Dies to cut a Crumb Cake circle.  Y’all – this amazing die set is retiring – so…get it NOW if you don’t have it already! 🙂

I stamped the Quiet Meadow wildflower image onto the Stitched Shape circle.  Over it – I stamped the cool script image twice in Crumb Cake.  Then I adhered the circle to the card front with Liquid Glue.

Using one of the…many!…dies in the Meadow die set…

…I cut one from Vellum cardstock and one from Crumb Cake cardstock.  I embossed the Crumb Cake die cut in the Old World 3D Embossing Folder.  Then I adhered both flowers to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I tied a Linen Thread double-loop bow and added it with a Glue Dot.

The sentiment, from Quiet Meadow, is stamped in Merry Merlot on Very Vanilla and cut with the label die in the Meadow set.  I used the same die to cut a Misty Moonlight piece from the 2020-2022 In Color 6″ x 6″ DSP.  I adhered the two labels together with Liquid Glue, then popped them onto the card front with double-stacked Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I used Glue Dots to adhere three of the new Bee Trinkets (these are coming soon in the new catalog!) and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added the Quiet Meadow wildflower and script images in Crumb Cake to a Crumb Cake panel.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Merry Merlot mat and into my Misty Moonlight card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got the Quiet Meadow images on the front in Crumb Cake…

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

Et Voila!  Y’all!!  This Quiet Meadow set – with it’s wunnermus bundled Meadow Dies – is going to be HUGE!!  I mean – the die set creates so many textural florals – it’s crazy!!  Match it with the sentiments and images in Quiet Meadow and…you’ve got a sure-fire winner!

I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Color & Contour Sneak Peek

Happy Happy HAWWWMP DAY!!  Wheeeeee…..cresting the middle of the week and sliding down the backside to the weekend!  This Saturday I get to do my virtual OnTour Event with Stampin’ Up!  This is a Zoom event – in lieu of in person, cuz…you know!  I’ve heard good things from the folks who’ve already had their event – so….I’m looking forward to it! 🙂 Hope you’ve got something that you’re looking forward to, too! 🙂

I’ve got a Sneak Peek for you today of a cool new bundle from the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog – that you’ll be able to pick up on 4 May!  The stamp set, called Color & Contour, will be bundled with a cool set called Scalloped Contours.  I used both of them and added some Flowers For Every Season DSP  (available right now in the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog – but retiring SOON!).  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from the sketch at the Inspired By challenge.

…and by the inspiration photo from the As You See It Challenge.  This one was also a speed challenge – and this card took me 9:40 to complete (you know – once I’d figured out what I was going to do)! 🙂

I cut a Just Jade piece of paper from the Flowers For Every Season DSP  using the largest Scalloped Contour Die and then I adhered it with Liquid Glue to the front of a Misty Moonlight card base.

On a piece of Basic White, I stamped the flower image from Color & Contour in Just Jade – then I cut it with the largest Stitched Shapes circle die and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I stamped the Color & Contour detailed outline flower three times on Basic White – twice in Bumble Bee and once in Magenta Madness.  I used the fill stamp (this is a two-step set) with the same colors.  I cut the three flowers with the die in the Scalloped Contours set.

I adhered the Magenta Madness and one of the Bumble Bee flowers with Liquid Glue and popped the third flower on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The sentiment, from Color & Contour, is stamped in Misty Moonlight on Basic White, and cut it with the smallest rectangle in the Scalloped Contour die set.  I popped it onto the card front with Dimensionals.

I added Cinnamon Cider or Bumble Bee dots from the 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dots to the middle of the flowers – added a Just Jade dot to the sentiment and the card front was done!

Serious?!  How fun is this set?? I LOVE those scalloped rectangles – and they’re perfectly sized for A2 cards!

On the inside, I stamped the Bumble Bee Color & Contour flowers in the corner of a Basic White panel.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Just Jade mat and into the card base and the card was done!

My Basic White Medium Envelope got the Color & Contour flowers on the front…

..and more of the Flowers For Every Season DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This quick card was easy to make with this new Color & Contour bundle  – and I KNOW you’re going to want it for yourself, just as soon as you can get it – which is 4 May.  Unless, of course, you decided to join the SU! team right now – THEN you could get it – and any of our other pre-order goodies! – right now in your Starter Kit (a huge value in and of itself) and with your cool new 20% discount! 😉

I hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix 

Wayne and I worked outside on Sunday and much of Monday – planting and tidying up the patio off the barn.

At the end of the day on Monday, after we fed, it was so nice outside that we sat out on the patio for a bit.

With Finn, of course – he LOVES that time of night outside!

Wayne – kicking back.

Oh wait – had to adjust the ball cap – sorry!

NOW he looks cool!

Finn don’t need no stinkin’ ball cap to look cool….

Pretty darned nice way to end the day, I have to say! 🙂
