Stampin’ Up! New Butterfly Bouquet Sneak Peek with Video Tutorial!

Good morning and happy Friday!  Whatcha got planned for the weekend?  Something fun?  Working outside?  Shoveling snow?  I don’t know for sure what we WILL be doing – but, I do know – FOR SURE – that we will NOT be shoveling snow! 😉

If you were able to join me for my YouTube live yesterday, I appreciate you spending part of your day with me!  If not, here’s the replay!

You might not recognize the elements of this card – and that’s cuz…it’s not available yet!  Nope – this is the Butterfly Bouquet bundle and some new designer paper!  These are available to demonstrators right now – and folks who JOIN right now!! – and will be available to customers on 2 March!  You’ll get more details as we get closer, I promise!  I got mine in the mail on Thursday morning and went to work right away to make a card to share with you.  This is an image-only set, so I added a sentiment and banner from the Vine Design bundle.  Take a look-see:

 

The layout for this card is from the Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge.

And the colors are from the Color Throwdown Challenge.

I started with a piece of the new Nature’s Touch Specialty DSP – this is part of the Butterfly Brilliance collection – and it’s truly gorgeous!  This paper – literally – has texture like a wooden surface.  No – you won’t get splinters, but…it’s very realistic!!  I matted it on Purple Posy for the card front.

I pulled out the Brilliant Wings Dies (bundled with the Butterfly Brilliance stamp set) and…using the biggest die…

 

…I cut out 6 gorgeous butterflies from one of the designs in the Butterfly Bijou 6″ x 6″ DSP.  Look!

This paper is gorgeous, too, y’all – you get 48 sheets – 8 each of 6 double-sided designs!  Think of the possibilities!

I also used three of the detailed butterfly dies and cut three Vellum cardstock butterflies.  Using my Fine Tip Glue Pen, and putting glue just under the bodies of the butterflies, I adhered the vellum die cuts to the DSP cuts.  I used Pearl Basic Jewels on all three butterfly bodies.

I used a couple of Glue Dots to adhere a Gold Hoop Embellishment to the card front.  Then I tied a Linen Thread Double-loop bow and adhered it with another Glue Dot.

I popped the largest Mint Macaron butterfly on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a piece of Basic White, I stamped the sentiment from Vine Design in Mint Macaron, then cut it with the label die in the bundled Flowering Vine die set.  I adhered it with Liquid Glue.

I added the pink butterfly with Liquid Glue and popped the small yellow guy on with more Dimensionals.

Using my Dark Purple Posy Stampin’ Blend, I colored one medium and four small Pearl Basic Jewels, which I added to the card front to finish off the card front.

On the inside, I used my Stamparatus to stamp just the top part of the big Butterfly Bouquet image onto the bottom of a panel of Basic White in Tuxedo Black.  I colored them with my Purple Posy and Mint Macaron Blends Combos and the Dark Daffodil Delight and Poppy Parade Blends.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Purple Posy mat and into my Basic Black card base, adhered the card front with Liquid Glue and the card was done.

My Basic White Medium Envelope got more of the Butterfly Bouquet flutterbies on the front…

…and another design from Butterfly Bijou on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Well???  Do you love it already!?!  Boy – I sure do.  Gotta say – when I first saw it I was thinking…more butterflies?  What??  But now?  Oh yes.

So – are you tracking that the Butterfly Bouquet set is a SINGLE stamp?  Yes – all 6 butterflies are on a single piece of red rubber.  AND – that image is cut perfectly by the large die in the Brilliant Wings set (the same one that cuts the DSP butterflies!).  So…stamped and colored or…cut from the DSP…you get 6 gorgeous die cuts in one pass thru your Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine!

The two designer papers – which will only be available during the Butterfly Bouquet Promotion (2 Mar – 3 May) are equally gorgeous! Be sure to check out the flyer down below!

I hope you like – and are ANXIOUSLY awaiting your chance to get them for yourself.  Or…you could ALSO join the Stampin’ Up! team as a hobby demonstrator and get them right now!  Holler at me and I’ll tell you how!

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

Finn Fan Fix 

So – Wednesday was World Read Aloud Day.

Did you celebrate? 😉

Well – Finn and I took part in a HUGE online ZOOM read-aloud with our friends at People Animals Love (PALS).  During the course of the day, 120 PAL dogs listened to young readers from across the USA and Canada–and one child from Cyprus!  Fun!

Finn and I listed to a story about Fangsgiving with one young person and Clifford the Big Red Dog with another.

Finn sorta got sleepy – what’s a guy to do when you’re hearing bedtime stories!?

So….let’s play a game!  Where’s Finn?!?

Rainy days always get me down….

No – he’s not really “down” (even if it sort of looks like it!).  That’s just what he does sometimes.

Well – he sleeps a LOT (for which I am eternally grateful!) but he sometimes sleeps in weird places and positions.

It’s just how he rolls…. 😉

Stampin’ Up! Hey Birthday Chick Bundle Sneak Peek Birthday Card

Happy Happy HAWWWWMP Day!!  Yep – it’s mid-week and you’re at the top of the hill.  It’s a downhill slide to the weekend from here! 🙂

Weekends are fun.  Everyone likes weekends!

And…new stamp sets and dies – swarming with uber-cute-and-stinkin’-adorable chickens are ALSO fun.  And everyone ALSO likes THEM!  Which means everyone is going to LOVE this new bundle that you’re going to be able to get on 2 Feb!  It’s called the Hey Birthday Chick bundle!  Now – Hey Birthday Chick is already IN the Jan- Jun 2021 Mini Catalog (page 52 if you’re looking).  But – in a couple of weeks (or…right NOW if you’re a Demonstrator or JOIN NOW!) – you’ll be able to get the Hey Birthday Chick DIES!  I’ve used this new bundle today – with some Dandy Garden 6″ x 6″ DSP.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one comes from the CAS Colours & Sketches challenge.

I started with a piece of Mossy Meadow card stock for the card front.  From a piece of Dandy Garden 6″ x 6″ DSP I cut two rectangles with the second-largest of the Stitched So Sweetly Dies and adhered them to the panel with Liquid Glue.

Then I pulled out the Hey Birthday Chick dies, cut a Bumble Bee sentiment (how cool is that?!?) and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

On a piece of Whisper White (Basic White will for sure work, too!), I stamped the cute chicken and balloon image from Hey Birthday Chicken in Early Espresso.  I also stamped the balloon part on a piece of Blackberry Bliss Dandy Garden 6″ x 6″ DSP.  Using the die in the Hey Birthday Chicken set to cut the chicken and balloon.  I fussy cut the DSP balloon and colored over the lines with my Early Espresso Stampin’ Write Marker, then popped it over the stamped balloon with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I colored the chicken with my Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends Combo and Bumble Bee Stampin’ Write Marker.

Using the fence die in Hey Birthday Chicken Dies I cut an Early Espresso fence.  I also cut three “feed sacks” – one each in Bumble Bee, Mossy Meadow and Crumb Cake.

I adhered the fence and three “feed sacks” with Liquid Glue – then popped the chicken and balloon over top with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I decided my chicken was a hen – and needed a hair bow – so I cut one (yes, it’s in the die set!) from the same Dandy Garden 6″ x 6″ DSP paper and stuck it in her hair with Liquid Glue.  And…the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped a second Hey Birthday Chick image in Early Espresso ink on a piece of Whisper White (or Basic White).  I colored it with Crumb Cake, Flirty Flamingo and Blackberry Bliss Stampin’ Blend Combos and Bumble Bee Stampin’ Write Marker.  I also stamped the image on the Dandy Garden DSP and fussy cut just the cupcake liner, which I adhered with Liquid Glue over the stamped image.  Then I stamped a second sentiment in Bumble Bee.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to Mossy Meadow and Bumble Bee mats and then into my Blackberry Bliss card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got the fun chicken and cupcake image on the front…

…and more of the Dandy Garden 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  You know, I loved the Hey Chick set when it was part of 2017 Sale-A-Bration and these little guys and gals in the Hey Birthday Chick set are all similar to those guys!  And…add in the totes-adorbs Hey Birthday Chick Die set….and you’ve got a winner!

And – we’re ALSO going to see the return of Hey Chick.  With dies of its own!

I hope you like and…are adding the whole shootin’ match to your I-gotta-get-it list!!

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

Finn Fan Fix 

Since his arrival four years ago, we’ve taught Finn to not go into the stalls.

At all.  Whether the horses are in them or not.  For obvious reasons.

And he’s been pretty solid on it.  He does lean into the doorway some to…sniff the sniffs and see if they dropped any food.

Or….erhm…droppings. 😉

So – imagine my surprise when, as I was cleaning Cady’s stall yesterday morning, I look up to see…

Four paws in.  ALL the way in.

You can see he knows he’s been spotted.

So….

I think this is the dog equivalent of whistling!  Nothing to see here.  Just a dog.  In a stall….

Maybe she won’t be mad if I offer an obedience behavior. And be really cute.

Who knows.  It could work!!

Finn Fan Fix 

All my Shares goodies arrived on Thursday – so yesterday I set up my chopping/sorting/gathering station.

Chopper in place.  Paper counted/stacked/ready.

Computer spreadsheet handy.

Check check and check.

Table laid out and first paper cut to tweak and finalize placement of stacks.

Something was missing…

What was it…

Oh yea – my chopping-support-animal!

There he is!

Phew!

Stampin’ Up! Fine Art Floral Gallery Sneak Peek Fun-Fold with Video Tutorial

Happy 2021!!  I suspect most of us are hoping and praying that this is a better year – on so many levels! – than 2020 was.  I know – and you know – that it’s not going to change for the better overnight.  But…perhaps the light we’re seeing at the end of the tunnel is NOT a train.  Hope springs eternal. 🙂

My first card for the year comes with a video tutorial and, if you were able to join me yesterday on my You Tube channel, I appreciate you spending part of your New Year’s Eve with me!  If not, here’s the replay!  Hint: don’t be confused by the picture – I DID make a different card on the video.  But…it means you get a two-fer today! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Playful Darling Donkeys 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 wide open 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!

Since it’s New Year’s Eve – and…I think most of us are quite ready to see 2020 in the rearview mirror – I figured I’d make a cute card along the lines of a few I’ve seen around the interwebs the past week or so.  It features Darling Donkeys kicking a Playful Alphabet 2020 to the curb.  And it’s all set atop some Flower & Field DSP.  Take a look-see:
