Stampin’ Up! Sending You Pleased as Punch Timeless Tulips

Well.  It’s Monday.  More to the point – are you sitting down!?  It’s the 30th of March.  Which makes tomorrow the 31st.

Which ALSO means that tomorrow is the LAST DAY of Sale-A-Bration! 🙁

And – it’s the last day that the Coordination Products will be available! 🙁 🙁

So – if you’re still wanting ANYTHING – SAB or Coordinating Product – you need to get busy right now!

And if you’ve been on the fence about joining the Stampin’ Up! family – now is a great time to pick a side – cuz you get SO much more bang for your Starter-Kit-Buck during Sale-A-Bration!!  Give me a holler if you’d like more info….

I decided to make a little card for you today that showcases a couple of fun products – one from the Coordinating Products (the Pleased as Punch DSP) and the other from SAB (the Sending Thoughts stamp set).  And I added in a little Timeless Tulip bundle, too.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from the CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge

And the Spring-y color palette is from the Color Throwdown!

I’ve also got all the elements from the As You See It challenge!

I started with a piece of Petal Pink paper from the Pleased As Punch DSP (a Coordinating Product) that I matted on Highland Heather for the card front.  I wrapped a length of 3/8″ Purple Tricolor Ribbon around the panel, securing it in the back with Glue Dots.

I used the Tulip Builder Punch to punch out two pink and one purple tulip from the Pleased As Punch DSP (did you know there’s also paper that coordinates with the Umbrella Builder, the Small Bloom Punch AND the Heart Punch Pack?!?).  I adhered the two purple tulips to the card front with Liquid Glue.

On a piece of Whisper White, I stamped the Sending You Thoughts (free with a $50 purchase during SAB – so…thru tomorrow – then it’s GONE!) sentiment in Highland Heather.  Then I cut it with a Rectangle Stitched Die and adhered it to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I tied a bow with the Tricolor Ribbon and adhered it with a Glue Dot.

I used two double-stacks of Stampin’ Dimensionals to add the pink tulip over the bow.

A few Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels finished off the card front!

On the inside, I added a second Sending You Thoughts sentiment in Highland Heather to a Whisper White panel.  Over the top, I stamped a small tulip from the Timeless Tulip stamp set in Petal Pink.  Then I tucked a Champage Rhinestone in to finish it off!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Highland Heather mat, then into my Petal Pink card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got a couple more Petal Pink tulips on the front…

…and some more of the Pleased As Punch DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Tulips just shout SPRING from the top of their lungs (or – they would if they HAD lungs!).  I love the Timeless Tulips bundle – and it’s so cool that you can punch out all sorts of pretty tulips from the Pleased As Punch DSP!!

PLEASED AS PUNCH DESIGNER SERIES PAPER

And Sending Thoughts is one of my favorite sentiment sets ever – and it’s made even better by being FREE.  Well – for today and tomorrow.  THEN it’ll be gone!  So – get these goodies quick like a bunny!

I hope you like and – if you want to recreate this card – all the Stampin’ Up! products you need are listed down below along with the card cuts!

Stampin’ Up! Witty-Cisms Thoughtful Blooms 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 Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge from Joanne 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 pulled out some more of the pretty Ornate Garden Specialty DSP – coming soon on 1 April (and available in a limited-time special bundle from me!) and then added a little Witty-Cisms and….Thoughtful Blooms flowers, punched with the Small Bloom Punch.  These are both free Sale-A-Bration goodies – available thru 31 Mar.  Take a look-see:

And here’s this week’s Paper Players Tic-Tac-Toe challenge!  These are my very favorite challenges!! Go across – down – diagonal….join the fun and show us your projects!  I can’t wait to see what you create!  🙂

And I used the sketch from the Freshly Made Sketches challenge for the layout – I just flipped it a bit!

I started with some flower-dy paper (oh – I went down the far right column on the challenge!) for my card front.

On a piece of Whisper White, I stamped the sweet little chinchilla from Witty-Cisms.  I used the Stamparatus and the Marker-to-Rubber technique to stamp JUST the chinchilla in Early Espresso.  I colored him with my Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends Combo Pack, then cut him out with the next-to-largest circle Stitched Shapes die.

I went back to the Stamparatus and used the Marker-To-Rubber technique again to color and stamp the sentiment in Mossy Meadow and Terracotta Tile.  Then I fussy cut each word and edged the resulting pieces with my Petal Pink Stampin’ Write Marker.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the die cut chinchilla to the Ornate Garden panel with a little hanging over the left edge – then I trimmed the excess with my Paper Trimmer.

Then I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Petal Pink mat.

I popped each fussy cut word on with a Stampin’ Dimensional.

I used Old Olive to stamp some Thoughtful Blooms branches and leaves above the chinchilla.  Using the Leaf Punch, I cut a couple of Mint Macaron leaves and one in Old Olive.  These I attached to the card front with Liquid Glue.

To make the Thoughtful Blooms flowers, I used Terracotta Tile and Petal Pink to stamp a variety on Whisper White.  The outline images are Terracotta Tile and the fills are Petal Pink!  Then I punched them all with the Small Bloom Punch.

Note: both these items are available right now as FREE Sale-A-Bration goodies – the Thoughtful Blooms stamp set with a $50 purchase and the Small Bloom Punch with a $100 purchase!


I adhered two of the flowers with Liquid Glue and then popped the middle flower up with a Dimensional.  A Champagne Rhinestone in the middle of each flower and two on the art circle finished off the card front!

On the inside, I stamped Happy Birthday (from the Witty-cisms stamp set) in Mossy Meadow on a Whisper White panel.  Around it, I stamped some dots from Thoughtful Blooms in Petal Pink.  In the corner, I added more flowers, branches and leaves from Thoughtful Blooms in Old Olive, Pear Pizzazz, Terracotta Tile and Petal Pink.

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Thoughtful Blooms florals on the front…

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

Et Voila!  Gotta love the punny little sentiments and cute images in the Witty-cisms stamp set (and the Stamparatus makes multiple-color-coloring easy peasy!!).  And I have to say that the Thoughtful Blooms stamp set AND that awesome Small Bloom Punch – are two of my very favorite things from the Sale-A-Bration offerings!  I assume you’ve got them both already – but if not…hurry and get them before Sale-A-Bration leaves us on 31 March!!  I hope you like!

I’d like to say we’re done mixing dirt.

I know we’re out of Vermiculite so…we’re done for a minute! 😉

Fortunately, Finn was supervising.

Welll…for a bit.

I mean – it was HOT for a fur-dog!

He tried to get on the golf cart to rest, but his mom had left her drink right in the WAY.

Not very comfortable….

Oopsie… what bottle?!?

Ahhh – THAT’s better!!

Silly mom.

Stampin’ Up! Tags in Bloom Sneak Peek!

Good Friday morning, y’all!!  Another week – done!   AND – it’s Valentine’s Day! Boom – drop the Mic!

If you were able to join me for my first-ever (but NOT my last!) You Tube Live Video –  I appreciate you spending some of your day with me!  If not, but you’d like to see the replay on YouTube…here ’tis!

This card gives you a sneak peek of one of the new stamp sets coming to you on 3 March 2020 in the Sale-A-Bration Second Release.  The Tags in Bloom photopolymer stamp set – with 19 image, sentiment and frame stamps – will be available for free with a $100 purchase!

The layout for this one was inspired by today’s sketch challenge over at Fab Friday!

And the floral touches are perfect for the Global Design Project theme challenge this week!

This set  coordinates with the Label Me Lovely and Label Me Fancy Punches already available in the 2020 Jan-Jun Mini Catalog.

For this card, I started with a panel of Granny Apple Green – a little bigger than I needed it – and embossed it in the Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing Folder.  Then I cut it down to my desired size.   I “whitewashed” the brick by dragging my Whisper White Craft Ink pad (upside down) lightly across the raised portions, and when it was dry, I matted it on Daffodil Delight to make the card front.

I cut two of the largest scalloped rectangle dies in the Stitched So Sweetly Die set – one in Daffodil Delight and one in Whisper White.  I adhered the Daffodil Delight die cut to the card front with Liquid Glue.

On the Whisper White die cut, I stamped the flower-edged frame from the Tags in Bloom set in Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  Then I turned the die cut 180 degrees and, lining up the frame, inked and stamped the image again.

Using my Granny Apple Green and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends Combos, I colored the leaves and flowers.  I also used my Light Mango Melody Blend on the flowers to add a little extra “oomph” to the shading on the flowers.

I popped the completed panel over the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Across the middle, I adhered a short length of Granny Apple Green 1/2″ Textured Weave Ribbon with a little Liquid Glue.

On a seperate piece of Whisper White, I stamped the Tags in Bloom sentiment in Granny Apple Green.  Then I added the dotted-frame image, stamped in Daffodil Delight.  I punched the sentiment with the Label Me Lovely Punch – and popped it over the ribbon with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

A few Rhinestone Basic Jewels finished off the card front.

On the inside, I added a second sentiment from Tags in Bloom in Granny Apple Green to a Whsiper White panel.  Across the bottom I added the flowers in Tuxedo Black and colored them with my Stampin’ Blends.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Daffodil Delight mat and into my Basic Black card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more of the flowers on the front…

…and a piece of Granny Apple Green paper from the Brights 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  How gorgeous is this image from the Tags in Bloom set??  It is SO pretty in spring yellow and green, don’t you think?  I hope you like!

And – uhm…you’ll be able to get it for free on 3 March and thru the end of Sale-A-Bration on 31 March! Or….get it right now!  Join my team – with no obligation, no requirements, no commitment – and you can get these goodies right away and start using them.  Give me a holler with questions – or get started right here….and let’s get you going! 🙂

It was a dark and stormy day….

Okay – it was raining.  Not stormy.  Really just sort of dreary.

It was a dark and dreary morning….

…and warm enough that I’d directed the staff to open every door and window to air out the musty wolf smell of my lair.

With that done, after eating my specially prepared breakfast….

Okay – it’s dry dog food out of a bag.  Not like…venison benedict or something.

With that done, after eating my dry dog food out of a bag like a “regular” dog….

I took up my post.

I scanned for anything out of the ordinary.

Anything…odd.  Or…new.  Or…just….you know.

Soon, though, the patter of rain and the lack of anything “you know” began to take a toll…

The struggle is real, people.  It’s the ugly truth that no one wants to hear or know!

Sleep.   Happens.

Why do the staff always have a pea-pickin’ camera to catch me in the act of taking a short little teensy power nap?!?

The staff is on their own.

Stampin’ Up! Lifetime of Lasting Elegance

Good Monday morning, y’all!  Hope you’re heading into a stress-free week!

Did you know….Have you HEARD?!?  We’ve got another Sale-A-Bration Release coming on 3 Mar for you!  Whoo-hooo!!  Keep reading and I’ll bring you a digital peek!

The card I made today uses the sweet Last A Lifetime stamp set and the bundled Lasting Elegance Dies.  AND – I’ve used a couple of new papers from the Sale-A-Bration second release.  Take a look-see:

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

And my color palette is from the Color Throwdown challenge.

Now – what’s that gorgeous flower you see on the front of my card??  It’s fussy-cut from one of the new papers in the SAB Second Release – called Flowering Foils Specialty DSP.  When you select this $50-Level 1 SAB 2 reward, you’ll get twelve single-sided sheets of four designs.  All the papers are foil-embossed in Rose Gold or Silver foil.  They’re made for coloring, too – with sponges/daubers, Sponge Brayer, Stampin’ Blends…what have you!  Check them out!

To create my card, I started with a piece of Whisper White card stock that I ran thru my die-cutting machine with the corner frame die from the Lasting Elegance die set.  Then I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Night of Navy mat.

Using the 2 7/8″ wide rectangle die from the Stitched So Sweetly die set, I cut out a square from a piece of Pool Party embossed vellum from…the new So Very Vellum Specialty Vellum.  THIS is another new pack of paper – it’s a $50 Level-1 SAB 2 reward, too!  And you’ll get 6 sheets of dry-embossed vellum  – 2 each in Pool Party, Purple Posy and Soft Sea Foam!

I used Glue Dots to adhere the vellum square to the corner of the Whisper White panel.

I cut the small corner die from Lasting Elegance from a piece of Whisper White.  Left by itself, the die cuts the design from a piece of card stock – leaving negative space.  By placing the die on the corner of the card stock…

…and then using the outline die and running it back thru the machine…you’ll end up with a die cut corner!

I adhered that to the vellum square with a little Liquid Glue.

I stamped a sentiment from the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set (from the Annual Catalog) in Night of Navy on Whisper White and cut it with a Stitched So Sweetly Die – then adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue

I used Glue Dots to wind a length of Petal Pink 1/4″ Metallic-Edged Ribbon….

For the flower, I colored one of the large foiled flowers in the new Flowering Foils Specialty DSP (coming on 3 Mar) with my Petal Pink and Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Combo Packs and my Light Night of Navy and So Saffron Blends.  Then I fussy cut the flower and popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a medium Champagne Rhinestone to the sentiment and the card front was done!

On the inside, I cut the frame from Lasting Elegance again from a Whisper White panel.  In the corner, with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, I stamped the large flower image from the Last A Lifetime stamp set.  I colored the flower image with my Petal Pink and Pool Party stampin’ Blends Combo Packs and my Light Night of Navy and So Saffron Blends.  Then I added a few Champagne Rhinestones.

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another Last A Lifetime flower on the front…

…and more colored Flowering Foils Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  How beautiful is the Last A Lifetime stamp set and bundled Lasting Elegance Dies???

And I KNOW you’re excited for those beautiful new papers, right??  Well – 3 March, they can be yours!  Along with all the other goodies that you can get for free – check them out!

Or…JOIN MY TEAM right now, and you can pre-order them as a demonstrator!  The awesome Sale-A-Bration Joining Special is still available – and I would LOVE to have you on my team!  Check out all the deets right here!

Finn Fan Fix


We have Big Balls!

Hey – none of that, now.  Get out the gutter!!

We have FITNESS balls – and they’re Big!

I got them blown up yesterday.  I did the biggest one with the tiny little hand pump included in the box.

THAT was a bit of a workout all on its own.

Finn…supervised.

What is this fresh nonsense, Mom??

Once I FINALLY got it all blown up and corked off (as it were), I just stepped back and let him look it over.

He spent some time woofing at it – just in case there was any doubt who was in charge of what around here!

He did sniff it a time or two…

But mostly he kept a careful distance.

I asked the Dad to blow up to two smaller balls.

HE used the air compressor in the barn.  Duh!!  WAAAAY quicker!

Once they were blown up – I let them loose in the aisle.

And – of course – did NOT have my phone.  So…didn’t catch the bounding and pawing and playing and pushing-the-ball that happened.  But – I will soon!

He may never play trei-ball competitively, but…I DO think he’s going to have some fun herding our Big Balls! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Paneled Timeless Tropical Oasis for a Friend

Happy happy Hawwwmp Day!  Hope your week is going well! 🙂

I’ve got a sweet not-so-little card for you today.  It’s built on a Magnolia Lane Memories & More Large Specialty Card, with the matching envelope, so…it’s a substantial card!  And I used the Tropical Oasis goodies – including the Memories & More Card Pack – plus the Timeless Tropical stamp set with the bundled In The Tropics Dies.  Take a look-see:

 

The layout is inspired by the sketch challenge over at the Global Design Project this week.

I started with a piece of So Saffron card stock as a mat for my card front.  The card front itself is a large panel from the Tropical Oasis Memories & More Card Pack.  I cut the panel into 1″ wide strips and matted each of the strips on Pear Pizzazz.

Then I adhered the strips to the So Saffron panel with Liquid Glue.

I created a pineapple by cutting the “top” from Pear Pizzazz and the detailed bottom from So Saffron.  With Sponge Daubers, I brushed Pear Pizzazz ink over the top and So Saffron ink over the bottom to give them some dimension.  I adhered the So Saffron die cut to a piece of Pear Pizzazz (that I’d sponged with Pear Pizzazz ink) with Liquid Glue then cut around the pineapple to trim the excess and create a “back” for the pineapple.

Then I adhered the top and bottom to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I stamped the small Timeless Tropical flowers a few times on Very Vanilla – once in Grapefruit Grove, once in Terracotta Tile and a third time in stamped-off-once Terracotta Tile.  I used my Light Petal Pink Stampin’ Blend to color the petals.

I cut a couple of leaves from Pear Pizzazz.

Then I made the sentiment, stamping the phrase from Timeless Tropical in Grapefruit Grove on a Very Vanilla stip that I bannerized with my Paper Snips.

The final element is a short piece of 3/8″ Braided Linen Trim that I pulled apart at both ends.

Then it was time to build the collage!

I laid out all the pieces – and took the picture.

Then I started taking off a couple of layers and…took another picture.

I pulled all of the pieces off and started adhering them back down – in order – with Liquid Glue.

The final flower is added with a Stampin’ Dimensional.  I brushed that one with my Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush.

I used Glue Dots to tuck a couple of leaves from the Tropical Oasis Trinkets in amongst the flowers and die cut leaves.

I added a few Champagne Rhinestones to the flowers and card front – and it was done!

On the inside, I stamped the flower again in Terracotta Tile on a Very Vanilla panel.  Using a sticky note mask, I stamped around the flower – two small pineapples in Pear Pizzazz and two leaves in Old Olive.  I picked up the mask and used my Light Petal Pink Blend to color the flower, Light So Saffron Blend for the pineapples and Light Old Olive Blend for the leaves.  Then I tucked a few Champagne Rhinestones around and added one to the middle of the flower.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to my So Saffron mat and into the Magnolia Lane card, added the card front with Liquid Glue, and the card was done.

My Magnolia Lane Memories & More Large Specialty Envelope got the stamped images on the front (I didn’t color them in)…

…and I used the envelope liner that comes with the Magnolia Lane Memories & More Large Specialty Cards & Envelopes as a template and created my own liner.  I used Liquid Glue to adhere it inside the envelope.

Et Voila!  I love this Tropical Oasis Suite SO much – and it is AWESOME on the Magnolia Lane card!!  The Tropical Oasis DSP is one of the most stunning papers I’ve seen.  And the beautiful images, sentiments and cutting/embossing dies in the Timeless Tropical Bundle are wonderful and work perfectly to create a scene straight out of the Hawaiian Islands!  I hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix


My friend Jan and I, along with Finn’s….birth mother, Linda…have been on an ongoing group chat on our phones….pretty much since the day that Finn came home with us three-plus years ago.

Yesterday afternoon, Jan sent us a picture of Scout (Finn’s sister) sitting out on the lawn, sniffing the world.  Watching for….anything.

Linda responded with what Finn’s dog-mom… Bonnie….was doing at the time.

And so – I chimed in with….

Kind of all in the family.  All lazing away a Tuesday afternoon in their own “unique” way.   Genetics?  The common thread of The Force?

Who knows.  I DO know that I am grateful on a daily basis that Bonnie is a sleeper.  And that she passed that to my Finny-win.  Cuz…a dog that wants to sleep is a blessing indeed!  😉

Stampin’ Up! A Special Day for a Special Someone

Good morning again, y’all!  Hope you’re already ordering from the 2020 Coordination Product Release OR looking to save a little money with one of my Special Bundles!  You can scroll down to get all the deets!

My card today is a teaser – to help you realize that you NEED the Special Day Dies – which, as part of the Coordination Product Release – coordinate with the sweet Special Someone stamp set in the 2020 Jan – Jun Mini Catalog.  Take a look-see:

I got inspiration for this one from this week’s FUSION challenge!

I started with a piece of Daffodil Delight paper from the Brights 6″ x 6″ DSP, matted on Granny Apple Green for the card front.

Then I cut a piece of Balmy Blue from the Subtles 6″ x 6″ DSP and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I created two pieces of “grass” with the grass die in the Special Day die set – one from Garden Green and one from Granny Apple Green.  I adhered the Granny Apple Green grass directly with Liquid Glue – and popped the Garden Green piece on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut a piece of Whisper White – and cut a “frame” from it with a Stitched So Sweetly rectangle die.  Using a Journaling pen, I created doodle-dot-dash-doohickeys all around the edge of the frame.

I stamped the sentiment from Special Someone in Granny Apple green on the bottom of the frame.  Then I used Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop it over the card front.

I stamped some critters from Special Someone – the squirrel outline is Early Espresso with stamped-off-once Early Espresso “fill in”; Rackety coon is Early Espresso with Crumb Cake “fill” and the field mouse is Basic Gray with Gray Granite fill.  I cut them all with their dies in the new Special Day Die set.

I also stamped a whole field of large and small flowers in Granny Apple Green and Garden Green.  They’re all “filled” with Daffodil Delight (yes, there’s a stamp for both flowers!).  They’re all cut with dies in the new Special Day set!

I laid everything out and, before sticking it all down – I used Tuxedo Black to carefully stamp butterflies here and there around the “scene”.  I LOVE these tiny little images, don’t you??

Then, using a combination of Liquid Glue and Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals – I placed all the critters and flowers.

I stamped a few more butterflies on the top of the frame – coloring them with the bullet-end of my Light Balmy Blue Stampin’ Blend.  I added small or medium Rhinestone Basic Jewels to all the flower centers.

I tied a double-length bow from some So Saffron Baker’s Twine (Metallic Baker’s Twine and Sequins Pack from Sale-A-Bration) and adhered it over the stems of my bouquet with a Glue Dot.  And that was it for the card front. 🙂

On the inside, I added another TWO sentiments from Special Someone in Granny Apple Green on a Whisper White panel.  Next to it, I added a flower in Garden Green and Daffodil Delight – and adhered a Rhinestone in the center.  I stamped a few Tuxedo Black butterflies – coloring them with the bullet-end of my Light Balmy Blue Stampin’ Blend.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Granny Apple Green mat and into my Daffodil Delight card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more flowers and butterflies on the front…I put Rhinestones in the flowers because this card is destined to be inside a package for mailing…

…and I added more Balmy Blue Subtles DSP to the envelope flap.  And…another flower and butterflies, too!  Can you guess why the extra stamping on the back?!?  LOL!

Et Voila!  I LOVE that almost all the images in the stamp set have a matching die PLUS there are extra shapes, too – like the grass and some sweet bows….The images and sentiments are so sweet and cute.  Being able to cut them without FUSSY cutting is just a huge bonus!  I hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix


There’s been a murder.

It was a grizzly scene.

It was obviously a crime of passion.

It appears the victim’s stuffing was – literally – picked bit by bit from his tiny body.

With obvious relish.

The victim, identified as Mr. Bear, was missing vital organs – most notably his Squeaker – when first responders arrived on the scene.

There was a single witness – and elderly female who was in shock at the writing of this post.

No suspects have been identified at this time, but authorities are attempting to locate a person of interest.

If you see this POI, please do not approach and call authorities at once.

Stay tuned for breaking news as it become available.

Stampin’ Up! Heartfelt Heart to Heart Valentine

Well – good day-after-Super-Bowl Sunday (and also – day after Groundhog Day!).  Did you watch the game?  We did.  No dog in this year’s hunt, but…it’s the thing to do, right??  And boy – I’m glad we did!  What a great game!  KC – talk about keeping their heads up and driving thru to the other side.  I was real happy to see them win.  In the immortal words of Sir Alexander Dane: Never give up. Never surrender!

Also – apparently Spring is right around the corner.  Whether your team won or lost – there’s THAT to hang on to!

My card today is another one for Valentine’s Day – this one aimed at a card for a friend (versus a card for a spouse or other romantic interest!).  I used the Heart to Heart stamp set and the Heartfelt Bundle – with it’s cool Heart Punch Pack!  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is inspired by the My Favorite Things Wednesday Sketch Challenge.

And the color palette of grays, red and white comes from this week’s Color Throwdown.

I needed to start with the sentiment strip and the DSP strip so that I’d know where to stamp all my hearts!  A little different order of doing things, huh?

I stamped the sentiment from the Heart to Heart stamp set in Basic Gray on a strip of Whisper White.  Then I snipped a banner end.

I laid the strip on a Whisper White panel and used that as the starting point for the stamped hearts.

With the smaller lacy heart image from the Heartfelt set, I stamped twice in Real Red.  Then I pulled out the small heart images from the Heart to Heart set and stamped them in Real Red, Basic Gray and Smoky Slate.

Then I matted the panel on Real Red to make the card front.

On the side, I added a Real Red-matted strip of Basic Gray paper from the Neutrals 6″ x 6″ DSP, adhering it with Liquid Glue.

Using the scalloped punch from the Heart Punch Pack, I punched out a Real Red foil heart from one of the designs in the From the Heart Specialty DSP pack, and adhered it with Liquid Glue.

I wrapped a piece of Real Red 3/8″ Double-Stitched Satin Ribbon around the card front – securing it in the back with Glue Dots.

I adhered the sentiment with Liquid Glue, and then added Rhinestone Basic Jewels – one on the sentiment strip and several around the stamped hearts.

A good-sized bow from the Real Red 3/8″ Double-Stitched Satin Ribbon, adhered with a Glue Dot, finished off the card front.

On the inside, I added a sentiment from the Heartfelt stamp set in Basic Gray on a Whisper White panel.  Then I stamped Heartfelt and Heart to Heart images in Real Red, Basic Gray and Smoky Slate.

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more hearts on the front…

…and some more Basic Gray Neutrals 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  These two stamp sets – Heartfelt and Heart to Heart – really work in concert to let us make Valentine’s Day cards for friend and lover alike, don’t they?  And I LOVE when punches – like the Heart Punch Pack (bundled with Heartfelt) – will cut images from Designer Series Paper like the From the Heart Specialty DSP.  SOOO stinkin’ handy!!  I hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix


I’ve mentioned a time or two that Katy gets me up early to be fed.

Most mornings, Finn gets up with me.  Out of solidarity.

Also FOMO! 😉

But – like me, the early mornings tend to make him sleepy (“er” than usual) in the afternoons.

Sometimes I’ll take a short power nap in the recliner.

Finn – out of solidarity – usually does the same!

Frequently on the sofa – where he can keep an eye on me.


Just in case.

Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips Jubilee Mother’s Day Card

Happy happy HAAWWWMP DAY!!  Whoo-hooo!!

I’ve got a really pretty card for you today (she says with blushing modesty…..) that is just perfect for Mother’s Day!  It uses two great bundles in the 2020 Jan – Jun Mini Catalog…the Timeless Tulips and Birthday Jubilee bundles.  They go together perfectly!  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from this week’s CAS Colours & Sketches challenge.

And the soft color scheme is from the Sunday Stamps color challenge.

I started with a piece of Very Vanilla that I embossed in the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder and matted on Petal Pink for the card front.

Then I cut two of the detailed die cut panels in the Jubilee Beauty Die Set from Very Vanilla and I adhered them to the card front with Liquid Glue. (It’s the middle die on the magnet in the picture below!)  I adhered the panels closer to the bottom of the card front so that there was about an inch “gap” at the top of the card front.

I used Glue Dots to wrap and secure a piece of Petal Pink 1/4″ Metallic-Edge Ribbon around the panel – over the “seam” between the two panels.

For the bouquet, I stamped the large tulip in the Timeless Tulips stamp set on Very Vanilla – twice in Petal Pink, once in Terracotta Tile, once in stamped-off-once Terracotta Tile and once in stamped-off-once Cherry Cobbler.  So….five flowers.  I punched them all out with the Tulip Builder Punch (bundled with the stamp set for a 10% savings!).

I also stamped five stems in Pool Party on Very Vanilla and fussy cut them.

I laid out the flowers and stems and then got busy sticking them down!  The bottom three flowers are adhered with Liquid Glue and then I popped the final two on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the stems in place.  You can see that I left the bottom parts of the stems sort of sticking up….

The sentiment, from the Timeless Tulips set, is stamped in Terracotta Tile on Very Vanilla.  I cut it with a Rectangle Stitched Die – modifying it to make it a little smaller.  I showed y’all how to do that on my video a couple of days ago….here!

I tied a big-ish loose bow with the Petal Pink 1/4″ Metallic-Edged Ribbon and adhered it with a Glue Dot.

Then I popped my sentiment over the top of the bow with double-stack Dimensionals.  Finally, a few Champagne Rhinestone Jewels finished off the card front.

On the inside, I added a perfect sentiment from the Birthday Jubilee stamp set in Terracotta Tile on a Very Vanilla panel.  I added a few tulips in Terracotta Tile and Petal Pink, with Pool Party stems and leaves.  Then I added a few more of the Champagne Rhinestone Jewels.  Cuz I love them so much! 🙂

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

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got more tulips on the front…

…and a single Petal Pink tulip on the back of the envelope!

Et Voila!  I love this color palette – especially in Timeless Tulips!

The Jubilee Beauty Dies create gorgeous texture on your projects – especially pretty in tone-on-tone Vanilla!  I hope you like!

If you’d like to recreate this card – all the Stampin’ Up! products you need are listed down below as well as the card cuts!
