Stampin’ Up! Easter Promise on Pressed Petals with a Video Tutorial!

Good Friday morning, y’all!  It’s day 498 of Social Distancing.

Not really – just sort of feels like it is, doesn’t it??   It’s really starting to get real – another 30 days??  AND – Georgia just followed other states by issuing a Stay Home Order starting today.  Good idea – it’s NECESSARY.  But…I feel pretty confident that NO ONE will believe me when I whine that having my house cleaned (and not by me!)….IS essential!

And now you know.  I AM a first-world-sissy-baby.

C’mon, Mare – you’ve got a house, and food, and electricity.  The dog and cat and horses have food.  Wayne can fix or cobble together anything we need.  ZEWS 1 is on the job.  We’re healthy – and getting to the two-weeks-since-we’ve-been-anywhere-so-surely-that-means-we’re-completely-healthy point.  So…waaaaa.

Sorry.  I’m over it now.

Since along with a house and power comes internet (Thank goodness!) I was able to go live yesterday on my YouTube channel.  If you were able to join me – I appreciate you spending some of your day with me!  If not, but you’d like to see the replay on YouTube…here ’tis!

The card we made is a pretty – and pretty easy!! – Easter card, using the Easter Promise stamp set from the Jan – Jun Mini Catalog, a sweet Ornate Layers Die cut and some Pressed Petals Specialty DSP (2019-2020 Annual Catalog).  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one came from the Mojo Monday challenge…I THINK you can see which sketch I used! 😉

 

And the Easter theme fits right into the Inspire. Create.  Challenge!

I started with some of the pretty sheet music paper from the Pressed Petals Specialty DSP and matted it on So Saffron for the card front.

Next, with the long, narrow die from the new Ornate Layers Die Set, I cut a Purple Posy rectangle.  I ran it thru the die cutting machine in the Scripty 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

Then, I matted a strip of wood-grain Pressed Petals Specialty DSP on So Saffron and adhered it over top with Liquid Glue.

I cut a Very Vanilla rectangle with the next-to-largest Stitched So Sweetly die and stamped the big Easter Promise sentiment in Mossy Meadow.

Next to it – also in Mossy Meadow – I added the floral spray.

I colored the flowers with my Purple Posy Stampin’ Blends Combo and the stems with my Light Mossy Meadow Blend.

Then I popped the panel onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I used a Glue Dot to adhere a Linen Thread double-loop bow, which I topped with a purple Frosted Flower Embellishment and a Champagne Rhinestone.  And that was it for the card front.

Speaking of Glue Dots, though…

Other side of the room by my photo box.  No.  Clue.  Why.  🤷‍♀️

Anywho….

For the inside, I stamped a second sentiment from Easter Promise in Mossy Meadow on a Very Vanilla panel.  I added the flowers, in Mossy Meadow, again in the corner, coloring them as I’d done on the front.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a So Saffron mat and into my Purple Posy card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got more Easter Promises flowers on the front…

…and more Pressed Petals Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Spring and Easter all rolled up in one!  Don’t let the Easter Promise stamp set – with it’s elegant flowers and simple sentiments – pass you by!  Easter is coming soon – and cards with messages of the hope of Easter are going to be especially welcome this year, I’m thinking!

I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips Happy Easter Happy Spring!

Good morning!  Happy St. Patrick’s Day! 🙂

Do you know that there’s only two more days of winter??  That’s right – on Thursday, Spring will be sprunged – YEAH!!!

And my card today is a celebration of Spring.  And Easter!  Courtesy of the gorgeous Timeless Tulips stamp set and the bundled Tulip Builder Punch!  Take a look-see:

I used the FUSION challenge – both sides, really.  Ish!

I started with a piece of Whisper White that I embossed in the Basket Weave 3D Embossing Folder and matted on Highland Heather for the card front.

I cut a piece of Seaside Spray paper from the 2019-2021 In Color 6″ x 6″ DSP, matted it on Highland Heather and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I stamped a whole bouquet of tulips using the large flower from Timeless Tulips – three in Highland Heather and two in Daffodil Delight.  I also stamped a few leaves in Granny Apple Green and a few stems.

I punched all the flowers and leaves with the Tulip Builder Punch, and did a quick fussy cut of the stems.

The sentiment, from Timeless Tulips, is stamped in Highland Heather on Whisper White and cut with a Rectangle Stitched Die.

I laid all the pieces and parts out…including a little bow tied from some Whisper White 1/4″ Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon…and took my picture…

 

Then I picked up the sentiment…

…and used that picture to adhere everything to the card front with a combination of Liquid Glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals (and a Glue Dot for the bow!).  I ended with the sentiment on top – popped over the bow with Dimensionals.

I added a few Granny Apple Green Glitter Enamel Dots and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a Highland Heather tulip and a Granny Apple Green stem and leaves to a Whisper White panel.

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another Highland Heather and Granny Apple Green tulip on the front…

…and more of the Seaside Spray DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  The Timeless Tulips bundle – which includes the Tulip Builder Punch – was one of the first things I got from the 2020 Jan-Jun Mini Catalog – and it’s just awesome!

I hope you like – and ASSUME you’ve already got this bundle.  If not…you know what you need to do! 😉

Stampin’ Up! Label Me Bold Ornate Style 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 Challenge from Joanne this week to help 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 the fun and simple (to me!) Label Me Bold stamp set from the 2020 Jan – Jun Mini Catalog and used its sentiments to work with the image-only Ornate Style stamp set.  Which YOU will be able to get on 1 Apr!  Take a look-see:

I know, I know – I keep using that new daisy image.  I can’t help it very much – I just love it!! And so will you when you get your hands on it! 😉

And here’s this week’s Paper Players CAS challenge!  Join the fun and show us your projects!  I can’t wait to see what you create!  🙂

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

I started with a piece of Whisper White cardstock that I embossed in the Basket Weave 3D Embossing Folder and matted on Granny Apple Green cardstock to make the card front.

To make the little strip element of the sketch, I used some SNAIL to adhere a length of Granny Apple Green 1/2″ Textured Weave Ribbon.

The DSP strip is a piece of Daffodil Delight Brights 6″ x 6″ DSP, also matted on Granny Apple Green and adhered with Liquid Glue.

The art is the fantastic Ornate Style daisy, stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, on Whisper White and cut out with a rectangle Stitched So Sweetly die – how MUCH do you love this die set?!?

I used watercolor pencils from the Watercolor Pencils Assortment 2, in Granny Apple Green for the leaves.  Then the flower itself is colored in Daffodil Delight and Calypso Coral (Assortment 1) with a little Crushed Curry (Assortment 2) in the middle.

Then I used Liquid Glue on the bottom half and Dimensionals on the top half to adhere it to the card front.

On a small piece of Whisper White, I stamped the Label Me Bold sentiment in Granny Apple Green and gave it a quick fussy cut.  Then I popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

A Granny Apple Green Glitter Enamel Dot finished off the card front.

On the inside, I stamped another sentiment from Label Me Bold in Granny Apple Green on a Whisper White panel.  Next to it I added another pretty little Ornate Style daisy!

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 another Ornate Style daisy on the front…

…and a little more Daffodil Delight Brights 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Label Me Bold is…for me…a flyover stamp set.  Easily overlooked.  BUT – it’s got a bunch of sentiment options for different occasions presented in a clean-and-simple style – so…don’t flyover it – get it before the end of the catalog!  And – I know you’re excited for Ornate Style and it’s bundled Ornate Layers Dies.

Be looking for those in the Ornate Garden Suite on 1 April.  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!

Nuthin’ like a good game of grab-wiggle-butt with your dad when the rain FINALLY stops!!

Somebody PLEASE GET THE DOG!!

Yes – he loves the Get The Dog game.  It’s ALMOST as good as the Who Can Keep the Stick Away from the Parents Game.  Or the ever popular – Zoom-Skid-Slam.  Which frequently involves the bowling over of the aforementioned parents cuz braking is HARD!!

All good games – YOU should try them!

Stampin’ Up! Daisy Lane Ornate Garden Treat Basket – with Video Tutorial!

Good Friday morning, y’all!!  I feel obligated to say….stop touching your face and wash your hands.

There.  Public Service Announcement….DONE!

If you were able to join me for my YouTube Live Video yesterday –  I appreciate you spending some of your day with me!  If not, but you’d like to see the replay on YouTube…here ’tis!

I got the idea for this sweet treat basket from my friend Sue Prather – who gave all of us one last weekend at our Spring STAMPede event!

This is so easy. 🙂

Where Sue used some Best Dressed DSP, I used some of the Ornate Garden Specialty DSP – from the Early Release Ornate Garden Suite (which y’all can get on 1 April – or NOW if you decide to join the team).  I decorated mine with sweet Daisy Lane flowers.  Take a look-see:

With my Simply Scored board, I scored at 2″ and 4″ on one side of the 6″ x 6″ piece of DSP – rotated the paper 90 degrees (doesn’t matter which way) – and scored again at 2″ and 4″.

Next, I used my Paper Snips to cut from the edge of the paper to the crossing score line.  I did that on two opposing sides.  As shown by the dotted lines below.

When I was done snip-snipping, my paper looked like this:

I placed Tear-and-Tape Adhesive on the inside of the DSP on opposite corners…

Then I removed the tape and brought the tips of the outside corners together – tucking the center square panel on the inside.

The end result…

I used some Liquid Glue to adhere the inside flap so that it would help to make everything more secure and tidier! 🙂

Ready to decorate!

I used a length (about 7 1/2″) of 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim (from the Tropical Oasis Suite) for the handle – using a craft stapler to adhere it on the inside of the basket at the points.

On a piece of Whisper White, I stamped two each of the large and small daisies from the Daisy Lane set in Daffodil Delight.  Then I punched them with the Daisy Punch and the Medium Daisy Punch.

 

With the Leaf Punch, I punched three Mint Macaron and three Old Olive leaves.  I creased each little leaf with my fingers and adhered three each on both sides of the basket with Liquid Glue.

I popped the small daisies atop the large daisies with a Stampin’ Dimensional.  Then I adhered them over the top of the leaves with Liquid Glue.

A Perennial Essence Flower Center in the middle of each daisy finished off my Spring Baskets!

Et Voila!  These little baskets are so cute and so easy and…how many ways can you think of to use them?  Mother’s Day?  Easter Brunch?  May Day?  Baby Shower?  Bridal Shower?  Think of all the gorgeous papers we have to choose from and the myriad of decorative options we’ve got with Stampin’ UP!  The Daisy Lane and two Daisy Punches are spot-on-perfect for any and everything Spring-y!!  And…the paper.  The Ornate Garden Specialty DSP is gorgeous!!  I hope you like – and will give these a try right now!!

Yesterday we started hardening the transplants.

Toted all the little trays and water-bottle “pots” to just outside the garage door for a little while in the afternoon.  Gotta toughen up the plants in preparation for going in the beds!!

And I cut some daffodils (and a couple of tulip tree flowers!!)

It’s just the best time of year, isn’t it?!?

Finn supervised from the golf-cart.

That’s kind of his jam.  Supervising.

If he had actual hands – not adorable paw-hands, he’d be holding a coffee cup in one hand and have the other in his pocket in the ways of site supervisors the world over.

No offense to site supervisors! 😉

Stampin’ Up! Botanical Easter Promise

Happy FRIDAY!!  Whoo-hooo!!  Hope you’ve got something fun planned for the weekend?  I’m thinking about heading south a bit to attend a little Thirty-One Gifts soiree.  We’ll see!  And – I’m going to get Wayne to help me blow up the three fitness/yoga balls I bought this week to help me and Finny learn treiball.

What?  You thought I might use fitness/yoga balls for YOGA?  Or…FITNESS??!

ROFL!!!  🙂

So – I got a new stamp set this week – it’s called Easter Promise.  And it’s got some beautiful flower images as well as sentiments.  I paired it up with the pretty paper from the Botanical Prints Product Medley to make today’s card.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one was inspired by this week’s CAS(E) This Sketch challenge.

I started with a piece of Pretty Peacock paper from the wonderful Botanical Prints Product Medley and matted it on Daffodil Delight for the card front.

Then I cut a Stitched Rectangle from Daffodil Delight, embossed it in the Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder (this may be my favorite embossing folder EVER!!) and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I wrapped some of the Old Olive 1/4″ Twill Ribbon (from the Botanical Prints Medley) around the card front – securing it in the back with Glue Dots.

For the sentiment, I stamped the pretty flower image from Easter Promise in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a piece of Whisper White.  Using my Daffodil Delight and Old Olive Stampin’ Blend Combos and the Light Mango Melody Blend (for the stamen), I colored the image.

When it was completely dry, I added the big sentiment over it in Versamark Ink.  I sprinkled it with Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat set it with my Heat Tool.

With another die from the Stitched Rectangle set, I cut the sentiment and popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I tied a small bow from the Old Olive Twill Ribbon and adhered it with a Glue Dot.

Finally, I added one of the sweet little bees from the Product Medley with a Glue Dot – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a second sentiment from Easter Promise in Pretty Peacock on a Whisper White panel.  At the bottom, I added the flower image in Tuxedo Black and colored it with my Blends.  Then, cuz I like them a LOT!, I added another Product Medley bee with a Glue Dot!

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

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

….and I added more of the Botanical Products DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This card highlights the beauty of a Product Medley – a curated grouping of products that work together and let you and your creativity SOAR! – and the Botanical Prints medley is no exception!  The papers are gorgeous and the accompanying stamp set, dies, labels, die cuts, ribbon and embellishments go perfectly hand-in-hand!

And, of course, Easter Promise brings perfect images and sentiments to celebrate the Miracle of the Season!

I hope you like!

Here it is.

The Lip-Look.

It’s one of my favorite looks from The Man.

He gives it to us often.  Usually when we say something that interests him.  Or that he didn’t understand.

First – the closed mouth to achieve “the lips”… the equivalent of…”say what now?”

And then the slight head-tilt.

The equivalent of…hmm.  That IS an interesting question.  I’ll ponder that for a nano-moment!!

Stampin’ Up! Well Written Daisy Lane

Happy Hawwwmp Day from Huntsville!  Had a good day yesterday – got here safely.  Got my work done and a new work computer (YEAH!!), got a really good mani/pedi and then had dinner with an old friend.  Followed by Handels Homemade Ice Cream.

Oh my goodness, y’all – if you happen to have a Handels anywhere near you…GO.

GO NOW.

Oh my goodness.

Yes – I know I said that twice.  It’s merited! 😉  I was a little too full (read…full as a tick!) but…SOOO worth it!

My card for you today uses the wonderful new Daisy Lane stamp set – and the Daisy Punch (which you can – and SHOULD – get right this very minute if you don’t have it already! 🙂 )  I put my daisies on some Perennial Essence DSP and added a Well Written die cut sentiment.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Birthday Soft Spring Sneak Peek

Well.  It’s Saturday.  And this post is coming to you from HOME!  Whoo-hooo! And I’ll be headed back north today for Amy’s going away lunch.

Whoo-hoo??  “Yeah” cuz I get to see our team – but… sad emoji that Amy is leaving.  They’re moving to New Jersey.  I’m really truly trying to be happy and excited for their new adventure.  Really.

You’d think we got together every week for coffee or something.  With the exception of our quarterly in-person meetings, our interaction is almost exclusively online and on the phone.  Which won’t change.

But… 🙁 🙁 🙁

I have our Cruise and the trip to Maui next year to look forward to – so…trying to be all positive and stuff.

The struggle is real, people!

So – let’s stop all this false positiveness and get to something I can legitimately be excited about, shall we?  With each new catalog there are Host-Exclusive sets – these can only be purchased using Stampin’ Rewards!  To earn Stampin’ Rewards – you have a workshop or submit an individual order with a retail value over $150!  And then – assuming you’ve done that after 4 June…you might pick one of the host sets from the new 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.

OR – you COULD join my team right this very second – and pick this set – called Soft Spring! – to help fill-out your Starter Kit.  🙂 Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Perennial Floral Essence 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!

For mine today, I pulled out some of the prettiest DSP that you’re ever going to see – the Perennial Essence DSP in the new 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.  It’s going to be available on 4 Jun – along with the rest of the Perennial Essence Suite.  Take a look-see:

Yep – that’s the paper doing all the work, folks!

Here’s the sketch we were all working with.

I started with some of that pretty paper and matted it on Crushed Curry for the card front.

Then, using two different designs from the paper pack, I cut two banner strips.  I bannerized the ends by sticking the strip in the back of the Tailored Tag Punch (yes, I left my Banner Triple Punch at home.  Do not ask me why!).

I adhered both banners to the card front with Liquid Glue.

For the flowers, I stamped the image from the Floral Essence stamp set 4 times in Crushed Curry on some…So Saffron Vellum Card Stock!!  Whoo-hooo!!  COLORED Vellum.  You can get it and Old Olive and Petal Pink all in a 12″ x 12″ combo pack when the new catalog comes out in June!

Once the flowers were good and dry, I punched them all out with the Perennial Flower Punch (bundled with the Floral Essence stamp set in the new catalog) and created flowers by stacking two together with a Stampin’ Dimensional.

I added a fuzzy Perennial Essence Flower Center to each flower and set them aside for a minute.

On a piece of Petal Pink paper from the Perennial Essence DSP, I stamped the Floral Essence sentiment in Blackberry Bliss ink using my Stamparatus.  Over the sentiment, I added the Floral Essence flower image in Petal Pink.  Then I cut it all out with a Stitched Shapes Framelits circle die.  I adhered the circle to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stuck a Perennial Essence Flower Center onto the sentiment circle, popped the two Vellum flowers on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped the Floral Essence flower a few times in Petal Pink in the corner of more of the Perennial Essence DSP.  I gave each flower a center with the little image from Floral Essence in stamped-off-twice Crushed Curry.

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Floral Essence flowers and centers (in full strength Crushed Curry) on the front…

…and I used a little more of the Perennial Essence DSP on the envelope flap!

Et Voila!  Oh my goodness, you guys!!  THIS.  PAPER.  IS.  SPECTACULAR!  Each piece brings more stunning gorgeousness – like Monet painting after Monet painting!  Wow!  It works so perfectly with the coordinating Floral Essence stamp set and bundled Perennial Flower Punch, too.  You’re truly going to love this one!  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Amazing Butterfly Life

‘Sup, y’all!?  Week going well?  We’ve finally got a little teensy warmer weather up here in the Baltimore area – thank the Good Lord!  Boy, when the wind blows here it is Some.  Kind.  Of.  Cold!  Brrrr!

I have a Spring-y card for you today – to counter the cold, maybe? It uses one of my favorite Sale-A-Bration goodies (and you’ve only got 6 more days to get plenty of it for your stash!) – the Botanical Butterfly DSP.  Atop that pretty paper, I just added a big bold sentiment from the Amazing Life bundle.  Take a look-see:
