Stampin’ Up! Spooktacular Boo To You Sneak Peek!

Good morning!  Big day ahead for us Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators!  Yep – this is the day we can start getting registered for the November OnStage!  That’s one of two events we have each year where we get together to see old (and new!) friends, get a look at the next catalog (in this case – the 2020 Occasions and Sale-A-Bration Catalogs), and …. get free goodies!  All in all – it’s a ton of fun and something we all look forward to attending (and is a HUGE benefit of being a demonstrator!!  This time, we’ve got one of the Local events right here in Atlanta!  Whoo-hooo!!!

But – before that happens, we’re all going to have a chance to play with some truly awesome goodies from the wunnermus 2019 Holiday Catalog – starting on 4 Sept!  The card I have for you today is another little Sneak Peek – this time from the Spooktacular Bash suite!  I used the Boo To You stamp set, some Monster Bash DSP and a little spider from the Wicked Dies to make a Halloween card!  Take a look-see:

Check out those goo-goo-googly eyes!! How fun are they?  🙂

The layout for this one is from the As You See It challenge…

And the color scheme is from the TGIF color challenge.

I started with two fun papers from the Monster Bash DSP – cobwebs above a bookshelf.  That seems pretty realistic to me! 😉  I matted the two pieces onto a Basic Black mat with Liquid Glue to make the card front.

Then I wrapped some new Basic Black 3/8″ Scalloped Lace Trim around the seam – securing it in the back with Glue Dots.

I cut a Whisper White circle with the largest circle Stitched Shapes Die and stamped the adorably frightful….uhm….Horn Monster?…on it in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. I colored it (him?  her?) with my Light and Dark Highland Heather and Light Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends.  I also used a Terracotta Tile (horn dots) and Crushed Curry (teeth and toe-nails) Stampin’ Write Marker, too.  Then I popped him onto the card front with BLACK Stampin’ Dimensionals (these are brand new in the 2019 Holiday Catty – and you get regular and mini dimensionals in the pack!).  Be still my beating heart!! 😉

The sentiment – also from Boo To You – is stamped in Highland Heather on Whisper White and cut with one of the many (many!!) awesome frame dies in the new Ornate Frames Dies (this is bundled with the Spooktacular Bash stamp set for a not-scary 10% savings!).  I edged it with my Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker and adhered it with Liquid Glue and a black dimensional.

I stamped the “Boo” from the second sentiment stamp in Boo To You three times in Granny Apple Green on Whisper White – then fussy cut them and edged them in Basic Black.  I adhered them ever-so-spookily around the spider webs with Liquid Glue.

I pulled out the Wicked Dies and cut 3 really cute little spiders from Basic Black and popped them all onto the card front with….BLACK Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The final – and most perfect touch of all! – is two perfect Googly Eyes in Granny Apple Green, adhered with Liquid Glue.

On the inside, I added a sentiment from the Spooktacular Bash stamp set in Highland Heather on a Whisper White panel.  Next to it is a Boo To You zombie-dude in Tuxedo Black.  He’s colored with Granny Apple Green, Highland Heather and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends.  His trousers are Terracotta Tile.  And then – a couple more Googly Eyes!!  Adding another little Wicked spider just seemed like the right thing to do!

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

The front of my Whisper White Medium Envelope got another zombie dude….

…and some more spider-webby Monster Bash DSP on the envelope flap!

Et Voila!  Okay, you guys – I really love the Halloween offerings in this Holiday Catalog!  I think the characters in Boo To You are so cute it’s ridiculous – and the Assorted Googly Eyes just make them POP!!  Add in the Spooktacular Bash and matching Ornate Frames Dies, some Monster Bash DSP and an assist frrom the Wonderfully Wicked bundle – and….you’ve got the makings of a Spooky Good Time this Halloween!  I hope you like!

If these look fun – I’d urge you to take a look at my Special Bundle #5 – the Wicked Good Fun Bundle!

Stampin’ Up! Gather Together Harvest Hellos Sneak Peek for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hey y’all – it’s Thursday, so it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!!  Today’s Hop is a sketch challenge – and I’m excited to see what everyone comes up with –  I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop!

I figured to give you another 2019 Holiday Catalog sneak peek – using the wonderful Gather Together and Harvest Hellos bundles – plus some Come to Gather DSP – and make a collage card for Fall!  Take a look-see:

And…here’s our sketch for the challenge!

I started with a piece of Early Espresso card stock, folded to make a landscape card front – and, using the large leaf image from the Gather Together stamp set, I stamped the leaves across the front of the card base in Early Espresso ink.

Next up is a strip of Come to Gather DSP, matted on Mint Macaron, and adhered right to the card front with Liquid Glue.  A second design, also matted on Mint Macaron, was next.

I used the same DSP design that I made my strip from and cut a Stitched Shapes circle.

The leaves – all cut with the wonderful dies in the Gathered Leaves Die set – are cut (and embossed at the same time!) from Mint Macaron and Pretty Peacock card stocks.  I used my Stampin’ Spritzer to lightly mist the card stock before running it thru the die cutting machine.  Yes – I did one set without misting….liked it better with the water.  So… 😉  I lightly curled the leaves just using my fingers to roll them.

I pulled out the Harvest Hellos stamp set and stamped the large pumpkin in Early Espresso on Very Vanilla.  I colored it with my Dark So Saffron and Light and Dark Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends – then I punched it out with the bundled Apple Builder Punch.  I also punched a little stem from Early Espresso.

I used the sentiment from Harvest Hellos and stamped it on Very Vanilla in Pretty Peacock.  Over top is a small pumpkin from Gather Together, stamped in stamped-off-once Mint Macaron – then cut with the matching die from Gathered Leaves.

I built up the collage with Liquid Glue for the leaves and Stitched Shapes Circle – and Dimensionals for the pumpkins.  Before adhering the colored pumpkin, I added a few loops of Cajun Craze Linen Thread from the new Gather Together Ribbon Combo.

I added some Pumpkin Pie jewels from the Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a second sentiment from Harvest Hellos in Pretty Peacock on a Very Vanilla panel.  Over top is a stamped-off-once Mint Macaron pumpkin from Gather Together.  I added a few more of those pumpkins – full strength! – across the bottom.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Mint Macaron mat and into my Early Espresso card base and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got more Gather Together pumpkins on the front…

…and more of the Come To Gather DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  These two bundles – Harvest Hellos and Gather Together – just go together like peanut butter and jelly!  Having them both – plus the Come To Gather DSP – will give you a huge head start for all your Fall and Thanksgiving projects!  You’ll be able to get your hands on all of it come 4 September!  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! God’s Peaceful Boughs Sneak Peek

Happy Happy Hawwwmp Day! 🙂  I don’t know how YOUR week has gone – but…ours has gone HOTTER than heck!  My goodness.  No one has any ooomph to do anything outside – least of all me!  Hoping it’s not been too awful where you are.  AND – hoping that our temps catch a clue soon!

My card today is a cool breath of snowy mountain air – courtesy of the gorgeous Feels Like Frost 6″ x 6″ Specialty DSP.  I added some sentiments from the new God’s Peace stamp set and also played with the Peaceful Boughs bundle – all of which will be available on 4 Sept.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one comes from this week’s FUSION challenge – it’s pretty obvious I only used the sketch, not the inspiration photo! 🙂

I started with one of the stunning photo-realistic papers from the new Feels Like Frost 6″ x 6″ Specialty DSP and cut a triangular piece from the top.  Then I adhered the larger piece to a Seaside Spray mat with Liquid Glue.

On the smaller – top – piece, I stamped the sentiment from God’s Peace in Balmy Blue.  Then I matted it on another piece of Seaside Spray.

I wrapped a length of new Seaside Spray 1/4″ Metallic Ribbon (4 Sept 19) around the smaller panel – securing it in the back with Glue Dots.

From a piece of Vellum Card Stock, I cut two pine boughs using the new Beautiful Boughs Die.  I used new Shimmery Crystal Effects to coat one of the die cut boughs and let it dry.

When all dry – I adhered the two boughs to the card front with Liquid Glue.  Then I popped the sentiment panel over top with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I used a short length of the Seaside Spray 1/4″ Metallic Ribbon to tie a “faux bow” around the ribbon (just tie it in a simple over-hand knot and trim the ends).  I also used a few Glue Dots to help the vellum pine boughs lay down on the card front.

I finished off with a few Pool Party jewels from the Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels (also coming on 4 Sept) – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I used my Stamparatus to add the large sentiment from God’s Peace in Balmy Blue to a Whisper White panel.  Over that, in stamped-off-once Seaside Spray, I added a pine bough image from Peaceful Boughs – and some Petal Pink splatters – also from Peaceful Boughs.  Then I added a single Pool Party jewel.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Seaside Spray mat and 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 more Peaceful Boughs images on the front…

… and a little misty paper from the Feels Like Frost 6″ x 6″ Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I love the God’s Peace stamp set – the sentiments are so perfect for the season!  And…How.  Gorgeous.  Is.  This.  Paper?!?  There are 4 of each beautiful design in the pack – for a total of 48 sheets.  Each sheet has a lovely photo image on one side, and a woodsy/geometric design in white and silver on the other.  And the Peaceful Boughs bundle.  Pine.  Cones.  Boughs.  Sentiments.  Done!  Questions??  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Birds of a Feather Sneak Peek for the Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop!

Good morning, y’all – welcome to another edition of Amy’s Inkin’ Krew team blog hop!  Each month we make projects centered around a theme – and this month our theme is Fall Frenzy!  We can interpret that any way we want – so…be sure to check and see everyone’s projects – we’ve got a bunch of talented ladies hopping with us this month!

First off – it’s hard to think about Fall when it’s 100 outside.  Just sayin’… 😉

I decided another sneak peek from the 2019 Holiday Catalog was the way to go here – and I figured….why not go with Thanksgiving?  So…I pulled out the new Birds of a Feather stamp set (which covers Thanksgiving, Halloween, Christmas and Valentine’s Day!) and paired the little turkey with some Come To Gather DSP.  Take a look-see:

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

And the colors are from… Sunday Stamps! 🙂

I started with some feather-y Pretty Peacock paper from the Come To Gather DSP (coming in the new 2019 Holiday Catalog on 4 Sept) and matted it on Crushed Curry for the card front.

On a smaller rectangle of Very Vanilla, I stamped the little turkey from Birds of a Feather (avail 4 Sept) in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored – her (she’s my turkey and she can be a she if I want to her to be, so… 😉 ) – with my Light and Dark Crumb Cake, Pretty Peacock and Rococo Rose Stampin’ Blends.  Plus my Crushed Curry, Cajun Craze, Early Espresso and Pretty Posy Stampin’ Write Markers.

I stamped the gobbler again on a second Pretty Peacock design from the Come To Gather DSP and fussy cut just the apron.  Did the same on a Pretty Posy checkered piece of 2019-2021 In Color 6″ x 6″ DSP and cut out the apron pocket.  I adhered both with Liquid Glue.

I stamped the Birds of a Feather sentiment in Pretty Peacock in the bottom corner.  Then I matted it on Crushed Curry and adhered it to the card front.

I pulled out a Tags & Feathers Elements and colored the middle stripe of one with my Pretty Peacock Blend.  Then I adhered it to the panel with Liquid Glue.

A tiny Linen Thread bow and some Pretty Posy 2019-2021 Faceted Dots finished off the card front!

On the inside, I added the Birds of a Feather gobbler in the bottom corner of a Very Vanilla panel and colored her as I’d done on the front.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Crushed Curry mat and into my Cajun Craze card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got another gobbler on the front…

…and some more feathery Come To Gather DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I love this little image from Birds of a Feather – and it’s so cool that the single set covers so many occasions, don’t you think?  And the Come To Gather DSP is going to be a mainstay for all your Fall projects!  I hope you like!

Now that you’ve seen my card, I hope you’ll take a little time to jump thru all the other projects we have to share. Click any name below, or you can use the Previous Blog button to jump to Terry Lynns’s page or the Next Blog button to see what Akiko’s been up to!

Finn Fan Fix


Y’all ever buy dog training treats?  Little – usually chewy (vs crunchy) – bites so be given – and eaten! – quickly during training.

Well – I got a bag at Christmas and have used them.  And Finn loves them.  SHOCKER! 🙂

But – they fall apart in my pocket/pouch – and they’re a little…spendy!

So – I ran across a thing called a Silicon Pyramid Mat (on Amazon – where else??) – they’re supposed to be used as hot pads on your counter.  BUT – they ALSO can be used to make peanut butter-flavored dog treats.

I’d been wanting to make a batch – just to try them.  Yesterday – in a fit of spoil-your-dog-domesticity, I did it!

Super easy – and…Two of those mats and one batch of the recipe made about a thousand million of them!

As advertised, they were soft and chewy.  Since one of the things I don’t like about the commercial ones is that very chewy-ness….I DID stick mine in my oven on low for an hour to crunch-i-fy them!

Now – the recipe I used said that the lady’s daughter was eating the treats as fast as she could roll them out of the mat.

So…I tried one.

Uhm…hmm.  NOT sure what her daughter USUALLY eats, but…  No.  Just…no.

But Finny likes them and they’re going to be awesome training treats!!

Whoo-hoo!

Stampin’ Up! Merry Moose and Plaid Sneak Peek

Good morning! Happy mid-way-thru-the-weekend!  Hope it’s going well – it’s a freakin’ steam bath here!  Yikes.  I am SO ready for some Fall weather.  Either that or I need to build an underground bunker. 😉

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 would like to see how I made today’s card – and get a few more looks at some goodies in the new 2019 Holiday Catalog – here’s the replay!

From the instant I saw the Merry Moose stamp set – and the bundled Moose Punch (seriously?!? 🙂 ) – I knew this would be at the top end of my list for this really awesome new catalog!  And then I saw the Wrapped in Plaid DSP and…well.  It was a moose-y marriage made in heaven!  Take a look-see:

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

I started by building the background – using the new Basic Pattern Decorative Masks (coming on 4 Sept in the 2019 Holiday Catalog).  I used the trees mask and a sponge with Crumb Cake ink to first create the trees.  Leaving the mask in place, I then sponged lightly over the top with new Golden Glitz Delicata Ink (also new in the 2019 Holiday catty!).  When it was dry, I matted the panel on Cherry Cobbler for the card front.

Next I cut a piece of Cherry Cobbler plaid paper from the Wrapped in Plaid DSP, using a square Stitched Shapes Die.  I also cut a same-size piece of Very Vanilla.  I adhered the plaid square at a diagonal onto the card front with Liquid Glue.

On the Very Vanilla square, I stamped the large tree from Merry Moose in Shaded Spruce – twice.  Then I used the small tree image – and stamped-off-once Shaded Spruce – to add a few background trees.  I inked the large tree with the Golden Glitz ink and stamped over the top of the images.  Then I adhered the square to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I used a few Glue Dots to adhere a length of 5/8″ Burlap Trim across the panel.

I cut a small Rectangle Stitched Dies shape from Very Vanilla, stamped the Merry Moose sentiment in Cherry Cobbler, and adhered it to the trim with Liquid Glue.

On another piece of Very Vanilla, I stamped the moose in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  Then I used my Light and Dark Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends to color his body and Light and Dark Gray Granite for his antlers.  I cut him out with the Moose Punch and, using Liquid Glue and some Mini Dimensionals (under the antlers), adhered him next to the sentiment.

I stamped the scarf in Shaded Spruce on Very Vanilla, fussy cut it and adhered it with Liquid Glue.  Then I added some Shaded Spruce jewels from the Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels (these are coming soon, too!) and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a second sentiment in Cherry Cobbler to a Very Vanilla panel.  Then I did a few more Shaded Spruce and Golden Glitz trees and some “ground/snow” in stamped-off-once Crumb Cake.

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

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got more Merry Moose trees on the front…

…and some more of that wunnermus Wrapped in Plaid on the envelope flap.

Et Voila.  Moose.  Trees.  Sentiments.  An adorable racoon.  AND a punch??  Yep – the Merry Moose bundle is going to be a heavy favorite this season, I am 100% confident!  And if you pair it with plaid?  Oh my.  I hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix


Did you guys know that yesterday was – apparently – National Spoil Your Dog Day?

No – I didn’t either.  Until I got an e-mail from Chewy or IHeartDogs or some such.

So…if I understand this correctly…we’re only supposed to spoil our dog on ONE DAY OUT OF THE YEAR?!?

Finn gives this stupid idea about a million paws DOWN!

Maybe a National Spoil Your Cat Day (and maybe then only once every 5 or 6 years – if you MUST have a cat).

But – not for dogs.

Dogs must be spoiled every.  Single.  Day.

Yesterday, in order to ensure that happened – Finn got me up twice on Friday night to go out.  This is unheard of in our house.  He simply never has to go out once he’s hit the sack.

THIS is normal – all night long – with nary a twitch nor a wiggle.  Probably some snoring, but that’s about it.

So I was on high alert on Saturday morning and, sure enough, appears he had a little tummy upset.

The 2 teaspoons of Pepto Bismol (YUK, mom – what the HECK!?!) was not even sort of well received.

Chicken and rice in the Mealthy Multi-Pot was the more (much more!) palatable remedy.  Dump it in – a quick 3 minutes on high and then sit until I got back in from doing the horses and…

I’ll feed this out and I’m quite sure it will settle his little tummy right down.

Also I’ll be a rock-star AND – will have fulfilled the requirement to spoil my dog for this year.  Winner winner chicken-and-rice dinner!

Phew! 😅 Don’t have to do THAT again for 364 more days! What a relief! 😉

Stampin’ Up! A Beautiful Friendship Eclipse Thank You!

Good morning – it’s FRIDAY!!  Whoo-hoo!!  Hope the weekend is looking good for y’all!

I had another special request for a card – this one a thank you with…hopefully!…some peonies.  So – I sent some ideas and we settled on the beautiful flower in the Beautiful Friendship stamp set.  I combined that with the Thank You Die and a sentiment from the A Big Thank You stamp set.  Take a look-see:

As I was figuring what to do for this one, I got the e-mail notice for the CAS(E) This Sketch challenge – and it clicked for me!  Do an Eclipse card! 😉

And it seemed to work perfectly with this week’s Watercooler Challenge!

I started with a piece of Whisper White card stock and started building a Beautiful Friendship flower garden.  First up – the peonies.  I used my Stamparatus, stamping the first one in full strength Petal Pink.  For the second one, I inked the stamp and stamped it off once.  Then I stamped the card front.  I used a Sponge Dauber to add more Petal Pink to the bottom and edges of the image and stamped it again (thank you, Stamparatus!).

I made a couple of sticky note masks (stamped the sticky note with the image and fussy cut it) and laid them over the top of the two peonies.  Then I stamped the hydrangeas in Balmy Blue.  I also added stamped-off-once Highland Heather lilacs here and there.  I made a couple of hydrangea sticky note masks and used all the masks to add stamped-off-once Pear Pizzazz leaves around the image.

The final flower is the rose – stamped in Blushing Bride.  I added some stamped-off-once So Saffron flower centers to the peonies and that was it!

With my garden finished, I cut the Thank You Die from the middle of the panel.  I VERY CAREFULLY saved all the “chads” from the die.  Don’t miss this step! 🙂

I also cut three more of the Thank You dies from Basic Black cardstock and stacked them up with Liquid Glue.

I adhered the panel to a Basic Black mat with Liquid Glue.  I set the die cut back into the “hole” and then used Liquid Glue (teensy dabs!) to put all the “chads” back into their spot – adhering them to the Black panel.

I adhered the “real” die cut on top of the stacked black die cuts and then adhered the whole thing back into place on the card front.

I used a Glue Dot to adhere a Linen Thread double-length simple bow, added a few pink Noble Peacock Rhinestones and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a sentiment from A Big Thank You in Balmy Blue – and created another garden scene on a Whisper White panel.

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

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

…and on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  A flower garden for a friend!  I love the flower images in the Beautiful Friendship stamp set, don’t you?  And the Thank You Die is a wonderful starting point for the eclipse technique!  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Cup of Christmas Sneak Peek for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hey y’all – it’s Thursday, so it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!!  Today’s Hop is a color challenge – and I’m excited to see what everyone comes up with –  I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop!

So – each week, we all build our blog posts early and then provide the shortlinks for all the ladies in the hop (that’s how we make our list that y’all can use to hop around and see everyone’s projects!).  THIS week – and I’m going to use “newly-retired-and-sort-of-flailing-around” brain as my excuse – I looked at our color challenge and then promptly got dumb.  I decided to use a new stamp set, called Cup of Christmas (coming on 4 Sept!!), from the 2019 Holiday Catalog to give you a little Christmas sneak peek – even though the color challenge is about as NON-Christmas-y as you can get without a pretty big stretch.  Take a look-see and…you’ll start to see the difficulty I had! 🙂

…and the color challenge.

Doesn’t really SCREAM Christmas, huh? 😉

I also used a sketch from FabFriday for my layout.

I wanted to show y’all this fun stamp set – called Cup of Christmas – and it’s matching (bundled) Cup of Cheer Dies, which is why it was in my head, I guess.  Here’s what’s so fun – this set represents a new line that SU! is bringing to us – the “Reversibles”.  It has two stamps in it that you can…literally…stamp-clean-turn over on the acrylic block-and stamp the mirror image!  These four images were made using just two stamps in the Cup of Christmas set!  Cool beans, huh? 🙂

Okay – now let’s get to the card, shall we?

I took a Whisper White panel and embossed it in the Tufted 3D Embossing Folder, cut it down to size and matted it on Crushed Curry for the card front.

Next, I took a piece of Garden Green DSP from the Regals 6″ x 6″ DSP pack and matted it on Crushed Curry, too.

On a seperate piece of Whisper White, I stamped the Cup of Christmas sentiment in Crushed Curry – then I cut it out with the left-handed die in the Cup of Cheer Die set (yes, there’s a left-handed and a right-handed die to cut those mirror images!!).  I also cut a solid peppermint candy cane.  From a piece of Blushing Bride – I cut the “striped” candy cane die.

After cutting the cup – I stamped it a few times with the poinsettia image from Cup of Christmas in Tuxedo Black – then I colored the flowers with my Blushing Bride and Crushed Curry Stampin’ Write Markers.  I added some doodle-dots around the flowers and sentiment with my Garden Green Stampin’ Write Marker.

I adhered the two candy cane die cuts together and then to the card front with Liquid Glue – then I popped the cup over with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

For the “whipped cream” – I used new Snowfall Accents Puff Paint (coming in the new catty on 4 Sept) and built up some puffy whipped cream.  Then I added a little of the new Shimmery Crystal Effects and sprinkled it with some new Ice Stampin’ Glitter (both also new and available on 4 Sept).

I adhered a short length of new Garden Green 3/8″ Double-Stitched Ribbon (availa 4 Sept) to the cup with Liquid Glue.  The embellishment is two Garden Green holly leaves cut with a die in the Cup of Cheer set – and another poinsettia in Blushing Bride – cut with its matching die.

I tied a little bow from some Whisper White Solid Baker’s Twine and adhered it with a dab of Liquid Glue.  Then I adhered the whole thing to the card front and it was done!

On the inside, on a Whisper White panel, I stamped a second Cup of Christmas sentiment in Crushed Curry and a line of little holly leaves in Garden Green.

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Cup of Christmas holly on the front…

…and some Garden Green DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I really love this Cup of Christmas stamp set – those Reversibles are FUN!! – and the matching Cup of Cheer dies, don’t you?  I think they’re really going to be a heckuvan addition to your Christmas card tool box!  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Leave a Little Sparkle Unicorn and Petals

Good morning!  It’s Hawwmmp Day!!  Whoo-hoo!

Yes – I still care about these things.  Just…not as much as I used to! 😉

So – my card today is going to be reminiscent of one I did a couple weeks back.  It’s a special order (they don’t upset us) so…I pulled the Leave a Little Sparkle stamp set and some Pressed Petals Specialty DSP and made another magical unicorn card for a tiny girl human headed off to school!  Take a look-see:

Similar – and yet…different, yes?  There’s the beauty of this wonderful craft of ours!

I started with a different design of the gorgeous Pressed Petals Specialty DSP and matted it on Daffodil Delight for the card front.

Then I stamped “Sparkles” (that’s what I named him) in the center of the oval in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  His mane is colored with the Light and Dark Rococo Rose Stampin’ Blends – plus my Merry Merlot Stampin’ Write Marker.  I brushed his body with Frost White Shimmer Paint using a dried out Blender Pen.

Next, I grabbed the Lovely Leaves Dies and cut some Daffodil Delight and Rococo Rose flowers, some Mossy Meadow Leaves, a few Very Vanilla “wildflowers”, and a couple of Gold Glimmer leaves and small flowers.

I made a flower with the Pressed Petals Specialty Washi Tape – I patted the back of each “petal” with my Embossing Buddy so they wouldn’t stick together.  In the middle is a Perennial Essence Floral Center.

I stamped a Leave A Little Sparkle sentiment in Merry Merlot on a strip of Daffodil Delight and bannerized the end with my Paper Snips.

Since I wanted a little more sparkle, I brushed the Very Vanilla “dandelions” with my Clear Wink of Stella.

Then I dry fit the collage and took a couple of pictures so I could put it all together.  Thought you might like to see how it all went together! 🙂

I adhered everything with Liquid Glue – with the exception of a couple of small flowers around Sparkles’ horn – I popped those on with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added some Noble Peacock Rhinestones and Rhinestone Basic Jewels – and some gold stars from the Most Wonderful Time Product Medley (this one is coming on 4 Sept in the 2019 Holiday Catalog)!

Before adding the Pressed Petals flower – I used a Glue Dot to adhere a double-length bow tied with Linen Thread.  I added the flower over top – with a little Liquid Glue – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a second Leave A Little Sparkle in Merry Merlot to a Very Vanilla panel.  Over the top is the sparkly-flourish in Rococo Rose.  And a few more Most Wonderful Time gold stars just cuz!

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

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got another Leave a Little Sparkle flourish in Rococo Rose and some gold stars on the front…

…and one of the Pressed Petals Specialty DSP papers – that coordinates perfectly with the flower on the front of the card! – on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Pressed Petals and Leave a Little Sparkle come together again to create a little girl’s fantasy!  I hope you like – I am quite sure that SHE will!

Summertime, summertime, sum-sum-summertime, summertime!

For us – summer is flip flops and shorts, watermelon and BBQ.

For a horse-dog, it’s…

…laying in front of the fan in the barn aisle.

Having a little puppy-picnic.

If you have horses – you know what those are.

If you don’t….you might not really want to know…. 😉

Stampin’ Up! Garden Goodness Perfect Day!

‘Sup, y’all!?  Hope your week is going well!  And that you’re redeeming those Bonus Days coupons!! 🙂

My card today uses a new-to-me set called Garden Goodness!  And I used it to make a summery card that would be a good one for a birthday – or any big day!  Back to school, maybe?  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from this week’s CAS(E) This Sketch challenge.

And I played along with the Word Week challenge at Just Us Girls!  Nothing at all says summer to me like sun-ripe tomatoes fresh off the vine!

I started with some Very Vanilla card stock that I embossed in the Basket Weave 3D Embossing Folder then cut down to size and matted on Mango Melody for the card front.

On a smaller piece of Vellum card stock, I stamped the cherry tomato vine twice in Old Olive. I also added the stem image twice.  Then I let them dry really well – okay, I gave them a little help with my Heat Tool on Low! 🙂

When all dry, I added tomatoes in Cherry Cobbler and Pumpkin Pie.

Again, when the vellum was dry, I used Glue Dots to adhere the panel to the card front – hiding them under the stamped images – and putting two very carefully in the bottom corners!

I wrapped a length of 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim twice around the panel, securing it in the back with Glue Dots.

I stamped some more stems and tomatoes on Very Vanilla and fussy cut them.  I also stamped the sentiment banner in Pumpkin Pie and added the sentiment in Old Olive – and fussy cut that as well.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the sentiment and the “bottom” tomato.  Then I popped the other two tomatoes on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Finally, I tied a bow with the 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim and adhered it with a dab of Liquid Glue – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a second sentiment from Garden Goodness in Old Olive to a Very Vanilla panel.  I also added Old Olive stems and Pumpkin Pie cherry tomatoes!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Mango Melody mat and into my Thick Very Vanilla card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

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

…and on the envelope flap.

Et voila!  Summer = tomatoes.  Always – whether they’re on a vine outside your door or at your Farmer’s Market!  Garden Goodness, with it’s PERFECT tomato images brings those ripe goodies right to your projects!  I could hardly stop stamping them! 🙂  I hope you like!

2019 Holiday Catalog Shares Are Open!

A catalog share gives you a chance to try a sample of all the new products in the catalog – and then you can see what you love and go back and purchase full packs of those goodies!

Try a little bit of the beautiful new Designer Series Papers, specialty papers and envelopes, plus fun embellishments with one of my Catalog Shares! I’ll place our Shares order first jump out of the box on 4 Sep 19 and use expedited shipping so I get it back fast!  Then I’ll get it all cut up, packaged and out the door quick as I can – likely early in the week of the 9th, if not quicker!

Once again, I’m offering a Designer Series Paper share and an Embellishment share with all sorts of fun new goodies!

I’ve got a few options for you to pick from:  a New Designer Series Paper Share, a New Embellishments Share, and an I Want It All Share (this one gets a free extra bonus!!).  And there are even DOUBLE shares, too!

Shares are open to anyone – including demonstrators, so…get all the details about what’s being offered in each kind of share right here – and get signed up for YOURS! 🙂


Do YOU Like to Pay Taxes on Your Goodies?!?

Me, neither!

If you love holidays—and don’t love taxes—we have some great news for you! Twelve U.S. states will have sales tax holidays for school supplies over the next several weeks. The dates for each state’s sales tax holiday will vary; the definition of “school supplies” will also vary from state to state. Fortunately, a selection of Stampin’ Up! products qualify as school supplies and will be tax-free during each state’s sales tax holiday period. (Sales tax holidays may not apply to additional county, city, and special jurisdiction taxes.)

If you live in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Massachusetts, Missouri, New Mexico, Ohio, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia or Wisconsin (whoo-hoo!) —click the picture below to see which products will be tax-free for each state !  HINT: Missouri and Texas -this weekend it’s YOUR turn!  Don’t miss out!

Important Note: Orders must be placed with Stampin’ Up! during the sales tax holiday period to receive these select items tax free; each period begins—and ends—at midnight (Mountain Time).
