Stampin’ Up! Merry Cafe Pumpkin Latte Video Sneak Peek

Hey y’all!  It’s Sunday!  Got today off which means it’s laundry day.  Yippee! 😉  And day-that-alarm-doesn’t-go-off-at-345am day!!  YIPPPEEEE!!!

As you’ve come to expect, this is the post that gives you a little sneaky peek at the card we’ll be making together tonight on my Facebook Live video – which is going to be ONE HOUR EARLY tonight!!  

I’m using the fun Merry Cafe stamp set from the Holiday Catalog that happens to work perfectly with the Coffee Cups Framelits in the Annual Catalog.  Sweet!  And – I’m also using some Patterned Pumpkins…

I do hope you’ll be able to join me tonight at 7pm Eastern!  Please note the time difference – I need to do this a little early so I can join our Amy’s Inkin’ Crew team meeting at 8!

Here’s a link to my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page!

Stampin’ Up! Christmas Seasonal Lantern on Plaid!

It’s Monday, y’all.  And that’s all I’m going to say about it! 🙂

If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video, I sure do appreciate it!  If you weren’t able to join, but would like to watch the tutorial, here’s a link to it on YouTube!

This is one that uses what’s become my favorite new Designer Papers – the beautiful plaids in the Christmas Around the World DSP.  And it all works together with the Seasonal Lantern stamp set and bundled Lantern Builder Framelits.  Take a look-see:

The layout was inspired by this week’s Global Design Project sketch challenge.

I matted my pretty Christmas Around the World plaid on Basic Black for the card front.  Then I cut the lantern shape with the die from the Lantern Builder Framelits and the detailed lantern from Gold Glimmer Paper.

The candle is stamped on a piece of Whisper White, in Tuxedo Black Memento ink and filled in with Real Red.  These are both stamps in Seasonal Lantern, as is the “glow” image that I added in Daffodil Delight.  I used my Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Write Marker to color the flame.

I adhered a gold Foil Snowflake with Liquid Glue, then wrapped a piece of Basic Black 3/8″ Shimmer Ribbon around the card front, adhering it in the back with scotch tape.  I added the lantern with more Liquid Glue.

Check out the video to see how to make the matted label with Basic Black and Gold Glimmer Paper using the Pretty Label Punch.  I stamped the sentiment from Seasonal Lantern in Versamark on Whisper White, sprinkled it with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heated it up.  Then I cut banner ends with my Paper Snips and adhered it over the matted label.

I cut some pine boughs in Garden Green with the Pretty Pines Thinlits and adhered them with Liquid Glue.  The pine cones, from Seasonal Lantern, are stamped in Early Espresso and Soft Suede and cut with their die in the Lantern Builder Framelits.  Once all the embellishments were on, I popped the label and sentiment on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I topped it all off with a bow tied from a length of Basic Black Solid Baker’s Twine and two lengths of Gold Metallic Thread, adhered with a Glue Dot.

On the inside, I matted a strip of the Christmas Around the World plaid DSP on Basic Black card stock, then added another length of the Basic Black 3/8″ Shimmer Ribbon around the Whisper White panel.

I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Basic Black mat and into my Thick Whisper White card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium envelope got a trio of Seasonal Lantern candles in Real Red, Garden Green and Daffodil Delight on the front…

…and more of the pretty Christmas Around the World DSP on the envelope flap.  Plus some more candles!

Et Voila!  Gotta love this plaid paper – and the versatility of the Seasonal Lantern bundle – Christmas – Fall – Hannukah!  Hope you like!

Don’t miss the fact that the Christmas Around the World DSP is included in the Buy-Three-Get-One-Free DSP sale going on now thru the end of the month!  And you’re going to want to take advantage of my Ordering Special and the World Card Making Day celebration, too!  Lots of opportunities to stock up and save!!

Stampin’ Up! Seasonal Lantern Video Sneak Peek and some Ordering Specials!

Mornin’, y’all!!  I’m on my way!  After spending yesterday afternoon struggling to get all my stuff in two 70 pound suitcases.  Who knew?!?  A little bit of paper and some ink and some stamp sets.  And – not even sort of all my stamp sets!

I like driving much much better!  

We got it all in – and by we, I, of course, mean the Master Packer.  Here’s the million dollar question…how the heck am I going to recreate the puzzle when it’s time to come home!  I took pictures – but…

Well.  As Scarlett would say – Fiddle-Dee-Dee….I’ll worry about that tomorrow!

So – God willing and the internet cooperates, I’ll be able to do a video with you guys tonight.  Fingers crossed – if I can’t get set up or if I just fall flat on my face…I may not make it.  But – I’m going to try!  Start like you mean to go on, yes?

And I love this card – it’s back with some more Black and Gold and a little Glittery-ness.  And plaid…glorious plaid!!  I used the Pretty Label Punch and the Seasonal Lantern stamp set and bundled Lantern Builder Framelits.  Here’s the sneaky peek!

So think good thoughts and hopefully I’ll be Live at 8pm Eastern right here on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page!  Watch the FB page for updates in case there’s a change.  

Hope to see you then! 🙂

Finn-Fan Fix  

Yoghurt is pretty popular in our house.

I like it.  Wayne likes it.  The cats like it – mostly Leo.

Finn likes it!  He licks every single nook and cranny (after waiting not-so-patiently for Leo to decide if he wants any or if this isn’t one of the preferred flavors).

Then he picks it up and prepares to destroy the tub.

Which is our cue to retrieve it before it’s shredded up and all over the house!

Oh yea – he cares not one whit what flavor it is.  He’s pretty undiscerning….

Stampin’ Up! I’m Wild About Christmas Happiness!

Morning’, y’all…I’m not even going to say my normal thing about it being Monday.  You know it’s Monday and I know it’s Monday.  So…yea.  It’s Monday.

If you were able to join me last night on Facebook, I appreciate you taking some time with me on your Sunday!  If not, then here’s a link to the video on YouTube in case you want to take a peek.

This card came about at the request of my mom.  She’s got a friend who’ lived in the mountains for a long time and is having to move to Arizona to be closer to their children.  And she’s not feeling very happy about the move!  So…the request was for a mountainy theme card.

Smack in my wheelhouse!

One of the new stamp sets in the 2017 Holiday catalog is called Christmas Happiness.  

If you know me at all, you know that this set caught my eye right away.  Yes – pine boughs.  Pine Cones.  Add in Christmas lights – and you’ve got me!

But I didn’t need a Christmas card – I needed a you’re-going-away-you’ll-be-missed-and-I-wish-you-the-best card.  So…I pulled in a little help from the Wild About Flowers stamp set.  Add in some plaid paper from the new Merry Little Christmas DSP and this is what I came up with.  Take a look-see:

My design is inspired by the sketch challenge at MFT Card Challenges – I just turned it on end! Continue reading

Stampin’ Up! I’m Wild About Christmas Happiness – Video Sneak Peek!

Mornin’, y’all!  Happy Sunday – and I hope your weekend is going well!

I’ve spent part of Saturday trying to organize and price 3 years worth of Stampin’ Up! and non-Stampin’ Up! (mostly Tim Holtz goodies) in readiness for next Sunday’s All Things Stamping Sale.  I’m trying to juggle my wish to not just give stuff away and my desire to get it gone! 🙂  And I have to keep the hubby sort of away….his desire to not give it away is far far stronger than his desire to get it gone.  Which just shows ta go ya that he’s a way bigger pack rat than moi. 

So…nyah! 😉

If you think you might want to come – let me know!  I’ll send you a map.

So tonight, I’ll be live amidst my mess, and we’ll make a pretty little card I made for my Mom.  It uses some new goodies from the 2017 Holiday Catalog, plus…well.  You’ll see. 🙂  In fact – take a look-see at the sneaky peek!

Yes, it’s got pines…and pinecones…and a little bling…and I sort of love it! (she says modestly!).

So – 8pm Eastern.  Right here on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page!  Hope to see you then!

Finn-Fan Fix  

Finn makes it pretty clear each evening that he wants some lap time.

Not with his dad.

He knows that’s pretty much a dead-end! 🙂

But…Mom.  Well.  Mom is a lot more susceptible to “the look”.  

It’s not easy to do a me/dog selfie – cuz it’s pretty critical to guard your mouth.  See the tongue?!?  It’s super fast.  And super wet.  And…I know where it’s been…. so I look like a goober and he just looks cute.

 

Sometimes I get lucky though…

Stampin’ Up! Lovely Painted Autumn Harvest Sneak Peek

Okay – so we made it!  It’s the weekend!  Whoo-hoo!  And also – whew! 😉

So the problem with a ginormous pre-order (or even a more modest ginornous-adjacent pre-order such as I did) is that it’s darned near impossible to narrow that first card down to one stamp set or bundle.  Obviously I picked the ones I loved the MOST from the new catalog – and that was hard, cuz nearly every page had one or two or five somethings on it that I loved!  So…how to pick the most loved of the loved?

I finally decided to use the Painted Autumn Suite – it was the one that caught my eye first, after all.  So – I pulled out the Autumn Harvest stamp set, the new Leaf Punch and the Painted Autumn DSP.  And I also ended up using a nice little sentiment from the Lovely Words Thinlits and Dragonfly Dreams!  Take a look-see:

My layout for this one was inspired by the sketch challenge at CAS(E) This Sketch.

And I also took some hints from a new (to me!) challenge – the Tic Tac Toe Challenge.  I love Tic Tac Toe challenges!!

I went down the right column on that one.

I started with a piece of Very Vanilla card stock.  Then I cut about a 3″ x 4″ piece of Window Sheet and punched it with the new (coming on 1 Sept!) Leaf Punch in the Painted Autumn Suite to make a stencil.  Across my Very Vanilla panel, using wedges of Stampin’ Sponges, I added leaf stencils in Lemon Lime Twist.  Then I went back over them with Garden Green.  And I cut a piece of Vellum card stock the same size as the Vanilla panel.

For my half circle at the bottom, I traced the shape of my Tear & Tape Adhesive roll on the backside of a piece of Painted Autumn DSP and fussy cut the shape.  Around the edges, I added faux stitches in Cajun Craze with my Stampin’ Write Marker.

Using my Fine-Tip Glue pen, I added glue on the back of the Vellum panel – only under the portion where I knew my half-circle was going to be placed – and adhered it over the leaf-strewn card front.  Then I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Cajun Craze mat.

My stamped sentiment is from the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set.  I stamped the first three words in Cajun Craze just above my half circle. Then I finished the sentiment by cutting three Lovely Words thinlits in Cajun Craze and snipping just the words out.  I stacked them up with little dabs of Liquid Glue.  
To be honest – I wasn’t sure what a “stacked sentiment” was – so…I stacked stamped words on top of the die cut word and I also stacked three die cuts.  I ought to be covered! 😉

I adhered the stacked sentiment to the card front with Liquid Glue.

Next up, I made some leaves.  Using Vellum card stock again, I stamped the veins image from Autumn Harvest (also available on 1 Sept – or now…ask me how!) in Garden Green and then I stamped the fill image over top in Lemon Lime Twist.  I also did one more on a piece of Very Vanilla.  I punched them all out with the new Leaf Punch and creased the leaves with my Bone Folder (now that I’ve found that trick – expect to see it a lot!).

The oh-so-pretty sunflowers are part of one of the beautiful papers in the Painted Autumn DSP – I fussy cut them right out of the paper!  And – just to make them pop – I edged each flower with my Early Espresso Stampin’ Write Marker.

Using Fine-Tip Glue and some regular white Liquid Glue, I adhered the large sunflower and some Vellum leaves.  Then I popped the smaller sunflower on with a couple of Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I used the Very Vanilla leaf and stuck it up under the small sunflower with a little Liquid Glue.  Then I tied a bow with the new linen-thread-on-steroids Jute Twine (love!) and adhered it with a dab of Liquid Glue.

I added more faux stitches around the edge of the Vellum in Cajun Craze then I added little dots of Fine-Tip Glue to the underside of the Vellum, under the leaves and flowers, to help adhere it to the card front.  I also added two eensy-weensy-tiny dabs under the stitches in the top corners.  And that finished off the card front!

On the inside, I added a sentiment from Autumn Harvest in Cajun Craze to a Very Vanilla panel (isn’t it wonderful?!?).  Then I stamped a Garden Green and Lemon-Lime Twist leaf next to the sentiment.

Do you think I should have added the faux stitches?  I couldn’t decide and so I left them off.  I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Cajun Craze mat and into my Early Espresso card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

I added more of the Autumn Harvest leaves in Garden Green and Lemon Lime Twist to the front of my Very Vanilla Medium Envelope…

…and then gave the envelope flap a covering of a little more of the Painted Autumn DSP.

Et Voila!  I kinda sorta love love LOVE this suite!!  It’s absolutely gorgeous – with its painterly images in the stamp set and the beautiful coordinating paper.  I think it’ll be a go-to all thru the dog-days of summer and into the Fall!  I can’t wait for you to get your hands on this Suite!!  Hope you like!

Speaking of getting your hands on it – you could!!  How?  

Glad you asked!  Folks who join Stampin’ Up! now can select from the new Holiday Catalog to fill their Starter Kits!  So…you, too, could be making beautiful cards with this Suite right now!  Give me shout – or check out all the reasons joining with me is a good idea, right here on my Join My Team page!

Finn-Fan Fix  

One of Finny’s most endearing traits is his ability to go from a hundred to zero in the blink of an eye.

And he’s almost always pretty close by when he hits zero.

Sometimes almost too close.

Not really – there’s not really any such thing.

What a love.

Stampin’ Up! Just Add Text Sneak Peek for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop



Happy Thursday, y’all – and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! We’ve got a super color combination to play with this week – one of my favorites! – and I know all our ladies have made some beautiful projects for you.  Y’all be sure to hop thru all their blogs when you get done here! 🙂

Here’s our colors!!

For my card, I pulled out another new stamp set – this is the Just Add Text set.  And I combined it with some Delightful Daisy DSP and a few touches from the Background Bits Host-exclusive stamp set.  Take a look-see:

I used the sketch at Mojo Monday this week to help me with the layout of this one.

I started with a Whisper White panel, SNAILd on Daffodil Delight for my card front.  Then I used a piece of Old Olive paper from the Delightful Daisy DSP for the diagonal strip.  I used a pencil to trace the diagonal cut I needed and cut it with my Trimmer.  Then I did the same with a Daffodil Delight card stock strip for the mat.  I used Liquid Glue to adhere the paper to the mat and then to the card front.

The middle layer is one of my favorite designs from the Delightful Daisy DSP, SNAILd on Daffodil Delight and then popped on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

For the sentiment, I used the beautiful stamped image from the new Just Add Text stamp set.  I used my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to put it right where I wanted it and stamped it in Night of Navy on a Whisper White panel.  I used my Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Write Marker to color the flowers and a combination of Old Olive Stampin’ Write Marker and Old Olive Watercolor Pencil to color the leaves.  Then I SNAILd it to a Daffodil Delight mat.

I wrapped some of the new Daffodil Delight 1/4″ Double-Stitched Ribbon around the panel, securing it with a Glue Dot in the front.  Then I added a little bow with a second Glue Dot.  Finally, I added a Night of Navy heart Enamel Shape and the card was done!

On the inside, I first stamped some little flowers in Daffodil Delight across the bottom of a Whisper White panel.  These flowers are in the Background Bits Host-Exclusive set coming on 1 June.  Over those, I added a Daffodil Delight-matted strip of the Delightful Daisy DSP.

I SNAILd the panel to a Daffodil Delight mat and into my Night of Navy card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more of the Background Bits flowers in Daffodil Delight across the front…

…and more of the Delightful Daisy DSP on the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Lovely Inside and Out Daisy

Good morning, y’all!  Hope your week is going well!  We’re back to summer in GA.  Bleh.  But – the veggie plants are loving it and growing like crazy – so there’s that!

I have a summery-pretty card to share with you today.  I used the beautiful Delightful Daisy DSP and the fun Lovely Inside & Out stamp set with the coordinating (and bundled!) Lovely Words Thinlits.  Take a look-see:

My layout – and several of the elements of the card!  – was inspired by the sketch and photo at the Fusion Challenge this week.

I started out by SNAILing a piece of Whisper White card stock to a Daffodil Delight mat.  The middle layer is a piece of Night of Navy paper from the Delightful Daisy DSP, SNAILd to Daffodil Delight and then to the card front.

Next up, I used the Lovely Words Thinlits to cut the heart die shape from a piece of Daffodil Delight card stock.  When you use that die, it leaves the negative in the piece of card stock.  So, I used a heart die from the Sweet & Sassy Framelits to cut the whole heart out.  I used the same heart die to cut a Whisper White heart, then adhered them together with Liquid Glue.  I adhered it to the card front with more Liquid Glue.

The sentiment, from the Lovely Inside & Out stamp set is stamped in Night of Navy on Whisper White, matted on a strip of Daffodil Delight and popped on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The flowers are from the Lovely Friends stamp set.  I stamped just the detailed flower images – one large and two small – in Daffodil Delight on Whisper White – then cut them with their matching dies in the Lovely Laurels Thinlits.  They’re adhered to the heart and sentiment with Liquid Glue.

To finish it off, I added a Rhinestone Basic Jewel to each flower and that was it for the card front!

On the inside, I decided to change things up just a smidge, and stamped another sentiment from the Lovely Inside & Out stamp set in Night of Navy.  But I placed it in the bottom corner instead of the middle of the Whisper White panel.  I surrounded the sentiment with a few more of the Lovely Friends small flowers in Daffodil Delight, with a Rhinestone in the center of each flower.

I SNAILd the panel to a Daffodil Delight mat and into my Night of Navy card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got some more Lovely Friends Daffodil Delight flowers on the front…

…and a little more Delightful Daisy DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I really love this color combination – it’s so classic and bright and cheerful!  And the Delightful Daisy DSP really makes it shine.  I think the two bundles – Lovely Inside & Out and Lovely Friends – just went together so happily.  Hope you like – and that these are already on your wish list! 🙂

Finn-Fan Fix…

People, I have an addiction.

My name is Mary and…I’m a Finn-Picture-A-Holic.

I can’t seem to stop taking picture of him!

Wayne tells me that not everything he does is cute.

I think he’s wrong.

The dog is cute when he’s making me crazy!

Wayne’s been working on our patio by the barn.  With a spot for my raised beds and a fire circle.

Quality control is essential.  Wiggle-Butt Quality Assurance Associates (WBQA2) is on the job….

….they give their all.  The CED (Chief Executive Dog) is on the job-site quite frequently.

Close inspection is necessary to ensure the job is being completed correctly.

 

It’s critical to leave no stone unturned.  Or left under a pallet….

WBQA2 CED basking in the knowledge of a job-well-done.
