August will bring a couple of things Stampin’ Up!-wise….

First – on 3 Aug – your chance to EARN Bonus Days coupons will come to an end!  Then the next day, on the 4th, you can start SPENDING those Bonus Days coupons!  Whoo-hoo!

And – on 4 August – the August-December 2020 Mini Catalog will be LIVE for you to order from!  Yeah!!  I know you’re excited and I’m excited FOR you!  How handy that the catalog is ready to roll right when you’ve got Bonus Days coupons to use! 😉  Remember the more you spend between now and 3 Aug – the more you’ll SAVE in August!

With all that lead in  – you MIGHT think I’ve got another sneak peek from the new catty for you today.  But…nope.  I’ve got a super quick and easy #simplestamping project for you!  It’s actually kind of a two-parter.

Stampin’ Up! Gather Together Video Sneak Peek

Good Morning, y’all!  Happy weekend to you!  Hope you’ve got something planned.  And hoping that whatever it is is fun!

We have plans to re-introduce the Finn-man to the joys of…a shampoo and blow out.

Which I would like myself!!

But – HE gets it instead.  Got to get some of that hair and that….aroma?…off!!  Going to do it in the barn – versus taking him to Puppy Tubs.  Might regret that decision…. 😉

Tonight – after the spa day – I’ll be going live at 7pm Eastern on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page.  I’ve got a fun card – well, I think it’s fun! – for you using a returning favorite stamp set and die!  Take a sneaky peek.

It’s a good one that’s right in the middle of my wheelhouse so…that’s a pretty good hint for you!

Hope you can join me.

Tonight.  7pm Eastern.  Right here!

Stampin’ Up! Happiest of Birthdays Fun Fold 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 clean-and-simple theme challenge from Jaydee.  Our theme is CELEBRATION! – which is appropriate since this is The Paper Player’s 500th Challenge!! Whoo-hoo!!  I hope you’ll come and play along to help us celebrate!  🙂

If you were able to join me yesterday for my Facebook Live video, I appreciate you spending some of your weekend with me!  If you weren’t able to watch the live version, but you’d like to see the replay on YouTube…here ’tis!

I picked birthday celebration for my theme – and pulled from the Happiest of Birthdays stamp set for my big bold focal sentiment.  I added it atop some relatively subtle plaid from the new Plaid Tidings DSP – coming on 4 Aug in the Aug – Dec 2020 Mini Catalog!!  Take a look-see:

And here’s our 500th Paper Players challenge badge!

I also pulled a little help for the layout of the smaller “card” on the front of my fun-fold from this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

This is a SUPER easy fun fold, y’all!  It probably looks familiar – cuz I did a similar fold not too long ago, using the Forever Fern Bundle!

For this one, I started with a piece of gorgeous plaid paper from the Plaid Tidings DSP pack that I matted on Misty Moonlight and then adhered to my Bumble Bee card base with Liquid Glue.

I cut a smaller piece of the same plaid and matted it on Misty Moonlight – to make the card front for the small card.

I placed a piece of Whisper White into my Stamparatus and, using the Marker-to-Rubber technique, stamped the Happiest of Birthdays sentiment.  I colored the large letters with my Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Write Marker and used the Pretty Peacock Marker for the small letters.

I used a Stitched Rectangle Die that was the right width – but too long – to cut the sentiment.  I made it smaller by running the cut thru my die cutting machine a second time.  The video shows how to do that – way easier than words would do!  You can scroll thru to about the 14 minute mark! 🙂

I used Liquid Glue to adhere a small strip of Bumble Bee plaid from Plaid Tidings to the bottom of the sentiment, then popped the whole thing onto the small card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a single Bumble Bee 2020-2021 In Color Enamel Dot – and the small card front was done.

For the inside, I matted another strip of the Bumble Bee Plaid Tidings DSP on Misty Moonlight and then adhered it to a Whisper White panel.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Misty Moonlight mat and into the small Bumble Bee card base – then I adhered that whole little card to the larger card base – offset to the left – with Liquid Glue – and the fun-fold card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another fun sentiment from Happiest of Birthdays on the front – in Pretty Peacock ink…

…and more of the blue-toned Plaid Tidings DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  The Happiest of Birthdays stamp set is perfect for clean-and-simple cards – the big bold sentiments really do all the work!  It’s also handy to have a cute sentiment for those SO FEW times you MIGHT be a little-bit-late with a card! 😉

And – Stampin’ Up! heard us when we asked for MORE PLAID!!  The new Plaid Tidings DSP is gorgeous!!

I hope you like!

If you want to recreate this card – all the Stampin’ Up! products you need are listed down below along with the card cuts!  And – of course, you can get a taste of the Plaid Tidings DSP in one of my Aug – Dec 2020 Mini Catalog Shares!

Stampin’ Up! Plaid Tidings Happiest of Birthdays Video Tutorial Sneak Peek

Good morning and welcome to the weekend!

We’ve got a few errands – all masked up, thank you very much.  And then this afternoon, if we can beat the rain, it’s time to get a load of hay for the ladies!  Getting hay in when it’s a million degrees with the same humidity?  Oh yes – horse ownership is a glamorous life, indeed! 😉  But – the sense of well being that comes from a barn full to the rafters with round bales of good horse hay…can’t be beat for a horse owner.  So – we’ll get it done.

Thank GOODNESS for heavy equipment.  That’s all I have to say about that! 🙂

Now this evening, after all that is done – and hopefully after a shower – 😳😳😳 – I’m planning to go live at 7pm eastern over on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page.  I’ve got a fun project for you using the Happiest of Birthdays stamp set….take a sneaky peek!

Okay – it’s a fun fold.  You wore me down! 😉

Hopefully you’ll be able to join me to see it play out in the gorgeous Plaid Tidings DSP!

Tonight.  7pm Eastern.  Right here!

Finn Fan Fix


On Friday – we took a big excursion to the bank to cash a check.

It’s about 5 miles round trip.  And that includes the 1/3 mile of driveway!!

But – when asked, Finn enthusiastically agreed that a quick trip to the bank was just the thing for a too-hot-for-furry-dogs Friday.

So…we all piled into the van and headed out.

Why did he want to go?

Well – any ride  – any time  – anywhere is sort of his motto.

Also?  The teller ALWAYS passes a milk bone for him.

Any bone – any time – anywhere.

See a pattern?

We left the window down some for him on the way home.

He likes that a lot!

If you look close in this next one – you can see his lips blowing in the breeze.

That’s how you know it’s been a good ride.

Your lips get blown!

Stampin’ Up! Gilded Beautiful Autumn Sneak Peek

Good Monday morning, my stamping friends!  Hope your weekend was good.  We worked in the garden, worked around the house, got catalog envelopes labeled and ready to roll when the catalogs arrive this week….generally stayed hunkered down around here.  Watching the news make us think we need to throttle back to our stay-home mode from a couple of weeks ago…. which is good for our to-do list, for sure! 🙂

Yesterday, I gave in to my burning desire to play with the stunning new Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP and the coordinating Beautiful Autumn bundle.  These are all in the Aug – Dec 2020 Mini Catalog which demonstrators are able to order from right now – and customers can get their hands on on 4 Aug!  Take a look-see:
