Stampin’ Up! Blossoming Baskets and Butterflies

Happy Happy Hawwwmp Day, y’all!  How’s the week going so far?

This card is one we made at our team meeting on Sunday!  I didn’t get it finished at the meeting, so I brought it home.  And made a few little changes from the original card.  It uses one of the coolest of the free Sale-A-Bration goodies – the Blossoming Basket bundle (available with a $100 purchase!).  Take a look-see:

We started with a Whisper White panel that we matted on Calypso Coral for the card front.  Then we adhered a Crumb Cake panel that was embossed in the Basket Weave Dynamic TIEF! Continue reading

Stampin’ Up! A Good Day for Delightful Daisy Treat Holder

Monday again, y’all!  Whoo-hoo?

No.  

But – I had a good weekend and I hope that y’all did, too!

If you were able to join me last night for my FB live video, I appreciate you spending part of your weekend with me!  If not, but would like to see how I made these Spring-y little treat boxes, here’s the YouTube version!

I admit, I blatantly CASEd the heck out of this from Sam Hammond (aka Pootles) – she did a great video!  You can see her version right here!

For mine, I used the gorgeous Delightful Daisy DSP from our Annual Catalog, and paired it with a sweet little sentiment from the A Good Day stamp set, which is in the Occasions catalog! Continue reading

Stampin’ Up! Daisies and Flirty Flowers for the Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop!

Good mornin’, 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 it’s Celebrate Spring!!  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!  Speaking of – help me welcome Shirley Gentry and Nanette Tracy to the hop this week! 🙂  

I decided to go flower-y for Spring! To that end, I dove into my stash of Delightful Daisy DSP and pulled out the so-pretty Flirty Flowers stamp set from the Annual Catalog!  Take a look-see:

 

I borrowed from the Wednesday Sketch Challenge at My Favorite Things for the layout.

I started with some pretty paper from the Delightful Daisy DSP, Fast Fuse’d on a Daffodil Delight mat for the card front.

My art work, from Flirty Flowers, is inked using the marker-to-rubber technique (color the elements of the stamp with your Stampin’ Write Markers to get multiple colors in one stamped image!) – with my Night of Navy, Daffodil Delight and Old Olive markers.  I stamped it on a rectangle of Whisper White and matted it on Daffodil Delight.

I cut a circle from another piece of Delightful Daisy with a Stitched Shapes Framelits die and adhered it with Liquid Glue directly to the card front.

I wrapped a length of Night of Navy 5/8″ Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon around the card front and tied a bow slightly off to the side.  Then I popped the matted art panel over it all with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

My sentiment, from Flirty Flowers, is stamped in Night of Navy on a piece of Whisper White and cut with my 1 3/8″ Scallop Circle Punch.  I cut a 1 1/2″ Circle Punch mat from Daffodil Delight and popped the sentiment onto it with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Then I popped that whole thing on with Liquid Glue and a Stampin’ Dimensional.

To finish off, I nestled a Gold Faceted Gem in behind the bow and added some Daffodil Delight Enamel Shapes.

On the inside, I used my Markers again to color another flower image from the Flirty Flowers stamp set and added it in the corner of a Whisper White panel.

I Fast Fuse’d 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 another of the Flirty Flowers flowers on the front…

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

Et Voila!  Spring-on-a-Card! 🙂  And quick and easy thanks to some beautiful and – dare I say…Delightful!?! ;)…designer paper and the lovely little Flirty Flowers stamp set.  Hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Cool Tasty Treats!

Happy Monday, y’all!  Once again I’ll say I hope this finds you safe!  Quite the weather weekend we had, yes?  As I write this on Sunday night, I can say we got off lucky.  We did find a tree down over our perimeter fence – thank goodness for smooth wire!  And a huge branch on the wood fence.  So a little work for Wayne. 🙁  But overall, so far so good.

Finn’s definitely learned a new skill from this wet weather.  It’s the fine art of standing still while your mom tries to dry off all your fur.  Every.  Time.  He.  Comes.  In.  Bleh!  The downside of having a dog!!  But, on the flip side, the rain water is making his coat all silky and shiny! 🙂

He’s ready for the nice weather again, I know.  He’s a little bored.

And you know what happens when a teenager gets bored….

Yea.

You know.

finn-blur
He’s a little cray-cray! 🙂

My card for today is one that depends heavily on some of the pretty Tasty Treats Specialty DSP.  I let the paper do the work and just added a sentiment from the Cool Treats stamp set and a few little embellishments.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Swan Lake Any Occasion Card!

Mornin’, y’all!  I hope this find you safe and sound after yesterday’s wild weather in so many parts of the country!  We got rain.

And more rain.

And then wind.

And rain.

Our pond overflowed the spillway.  Got some water in the basement.  But – overall, could have been much worse.

Finn’s day was messed up.  I didn’t get up as usual, cuz I felt like crap.  He went to feed with his dad in the morning, but they couldn’t go on their run cuz it was freakin’ pouring.  He did spend a little time outside playing when we had a weather break.  And we were able to give him an evening run.  But…the whole schedule was just…messed up! 🙁

I parked the golf cart at the end of the walk in preparation for the last “do” on the horses.  Mr. Finn didn’t want to come in with us – the night was lovely after the rain moved out.  This is what I found when I went back to check and see if he was ready to grace us with his presence.

finn-chillin-on-the-golf-cart
Just chilllin’, Mom!  I’m good.  🙂

My card for today is a card you could give for any reason or “just because”!  It uses a new stamp set – this is my first time playing with the pretty Swan Lake set.  My friend Jari did a card the other day using the Annual Catalog Blooms & Bliss DSP – reminding me how pretty that paper is, so I used a little of it, too.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Don’t Swirly….Bee Punny for the Happy Stampers Blog Hop

HappyStampersBlogPostBanner-2
Mornin’, y’all –  welcome to another edition of the Happy Stampers Blog Hop!  I spent a lot of time working on the title of my post – so, when you say it, kind of hum the “Don’t worry….be happy” tune, okay? 🙂

All us Happy Stampers Hoppers worked from a color challenge this week.

12938143_10209402800015255_2048233703467693424_n
Interesting color combo, huh?  The card I ended up with kind of …..evolved.  I did not have that instant “oh, this is what I should do with this challenge” revelation that I mentioned in a past post.  I just sort of….picked a stamp set – Pun Intended.  Then I decided I wanted to use the long, wavy die cut from the new Swirly Scribbles Thinlits.  And I just….started cutting those from Sahara Sand and Mint Macaron card stock and laying them on my grid paper to see what I could come up with.  Next thing I knew – I had my ah-ha moment and….take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Playful Palette Sneak Peek Work of Art!

Happy Friday, y’all!  I’m writing from Savannah – and it’s humid.  And muggy.  And humid.

And yesterday I saw an alligator in a little pond-ish thing by the road.  A real live alligator.  Like…loose.  To do whatever he wanted and go wherever the mood struck him.

It was kinda cool.  And yet…yikes! 🙂

My card today really showcases a new stamp set and the new 2016-2018 In Colors.  I used the Painter’s Palette stamp set – that I got as a pre-order item! – and some Playful Palette DSP Stack paper to make a fun little card for a friend.  Take a look-see:

Playful Palette Work of Art 4 - Stamps-N-Lingers

I played along with a color challenge this week at Can You Case It.  Challenge #117 called for Black, Cream and Peach.

CYCI#117 sketch


I took a teeny bit of liberty with the color scheme, but the predominance of the colors are correct.  It gave me a chance to use some Peekaboo Peach card stock! 🙂

I made two identically sized panels – one is a piece of the Playful Palette DSP Stack and one is Very Vanilla.  I matted both of them on Peekaboo Peach.  The first panel, with the Playful Palette DSP, I went ahead and SNAILd to my Basic Black card base on a jaunty little angle.

Playful Palette Work of Art 1 - Stamps-N-Lingers

On the Very Vanilla panel, I first stamped the artist’ palette image from the Painter’s Palette in Basic Black Archival Ink.  I made the little swathes on the “canvas” by using the medium sized swath image in the stamp set.  I stamped Emerald Envy, Sweet Sugarplum, Peekaboo Peach and Flirty Flamingo.

Playful Palette Work of Art 3 - Stamps-N-Lingers


I used Dapper Denim to stamp the sentiment – also from Painter’s Palette – in the center of the canvas.  Then I waved the panel around for a minute to be sure it was good and dry.

I inked up the thumbtack image in Versamark ink, stamped it at the top of the “canvas” and sprinkled it with new Copper Stampin’ Emboss powder.  A blast of heat from my Heat Tool melted it and got it all nice and purty!

Playful Palette Work of Art 2 - Stamps-N-Lingers


I popped the completed panel over the first panel with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card front was done!

On the inside, I cut a panel – same size as the panels on the front for continuity – from Very Vanilla and matted it on Peekaboo Peach card stock.  Then I SNAILd it into my Basic Black Card Base.  Just for fun, I ran a strip of Playful Palette Designer Washi Tape across the top and the bottom of the panel – and the card was done! 🙂

Playful Palette Work of Art 5 - Stamps-N-Lingers


I set the new Playful Palette Washi tape to work again on the Very Vanilla Medium Envelope, running two strips right across the front…

Playful Palette Work of Art 6 - Stamps-N-Lingers

…and cut my usual liner with my Envelope Liner Framelits from more of the Playful Palette DSP!

Playful Palette Work of Art 7 - Stamps-N-Lingers

Et Voila!  I love the pop of the color against the stark black background – the additional “blank” space is nice.  And, how fun is this Suite?  I really wasn’t sure I was going to love this particular set of stamps and papers.  But…it turns out that I do!!  There are so many fun images….
Painter's Palette Stamp Set - Stamps-N-Lingers

And the colorful Designer Paper Stack and Washi Tape….

Playful Palette DSP Stack - Stamps-N-LingersPlayful Palette Designer Washi - Stamps-N-Lingers

…are sure to make this one of your favorite product Suites in the new 2016-2017 Annual Catalog.

Speaking of which, there aren’t many days left to guarantee getting the new Annual Catalog from me for free.  And since you’ll also get your Double Peppermint Rewards and Free Shipping…seems like a no-brainer to me!  Sunday is fast approaching….

See you on Saturday!

Stampin’ Up! Vivid Vases Number of Years!

Good morning – it’s Hawmp Day!  And – a minor miracle has occurred here in GA.  As I packed my stampin’ stuff yesterday afternoon and piled the boxes and totes…I began to get a trifle worried about the size of the pile versus the Nissan Sentra I was pretty sure I was going to get at the Rental center.  Wayne assured me he’d get it all in…and I have faith he’d have done that.  But…would he have driven to Savannah in 6 weeks to pack it again so I could get home??  Likely not!  Perhaps I could take a picture and be able to re-create the exact box/tote/stuff arrangement?  Maybe some of my things would magically shrink while I was gone?

As it turns out, neither of these things will be necessary.  I gots me a mini-van!!  A durned nice one, too.  Thank goodness for the Gold Choice option at Hertz.  My worries are over.  I can now buy more stuff all willy and nilly while I’m there and STILL get it all home! 🙂

So.  Here’s my last post typed at home for a bit.  When next you hear from me, it’ll be from the lovely city of Savannah.  For this card today, I’ve got a clean and simple design that uses some retiring items.  I combined some Vivid Vases (retiring) and some Number of Years (thankfully not retiring!) with a little Greetings Thinlits (yep – retiring).  Take a look-see:

Vivid Vases Number of Years 4 - Stamps-N-Lingers


I have to say – I really love this card.  You know, we’ve got a lot of flower images at Stampin’ Up!  I mean, really beautiful flower images.  But – this little set of stems and leaves and this one little tiny flower in Number of Years – almost an afterthought, really, with the huge impact that the LARGE NUMBERS MAKE! – is one of my favorites.  It’s just so sweet and simple…I think it’s one of the prettiest we’ve got! 🙂

My design was inspired by this week’s sketch at CAS(E) This Sketch – # 169:

CTS 169 Sketch

And my colors and the flowers are from photo challenge #340 at Just Us Girls:

JUG Photo Week #340


I spent a lot of time trying to make a lemonade pitcher and some cookies.  Then I just got over it and went with the lemonade and cookie colors and the flowers in vases!

I started by scoring a frame around a Blushing Bride card stock panel – I did three score lines with my Simply Scored board on each side (I got the idea for the lines from the towel under the lemonade glass).  I SNAILd the panel to a mat of Flirty Flamingo  – one of the really pretty new colors in the 2016-2018 In Color Collection!

Vivid Vases Number of Years 1 - Stamps-N-Lingers

Then I stamped the Vivid Vases image in Basic Gray Archival Ink on a piece of Whisper White card stock and cut three of them out with my Paper Snips.  For the flowers, I pulled out the Number of Years stamp set.  I laid the vases on my Flirty Flamingo – matted Whisper White panel to be sure I knew where my flowers needed to go, then I inked just the parts of the leaves/stems that I wanted, using Stampin’ Write Markers.

Vivid Vases Number of Years 8 - Stamps-N-Lingers

The two end flowers are done in Wild Wasabi and the center is in Old Olive.  True confession:  when I stamped the three images – I got a little….extra….cuz I didn’t do a super good job of cleaning my stamp. 🙁  So….I added some wispy grasses to each vase with my Markers when I was done. 🙂

For the flowers themselves, I used Sweet Sugarplum and Wisteria Wonder – using the little tiny flower in Number of Years.  Then I adhered the two end vases onto the panel with Mutli-Purpose Liquid Glue.  The center is popped on with a Stampin’ Dimensional.

Vivid Vases Number of Years 3 - Stamps-N-Lingers

The sentiment is a die cut from the Greetings Thinlits – cut from Flirty Flamingo card stock.  The word “spring” is from the Circle of Spring stamp set.  Using a piece of Sticky note tape, I covered the word “Hello” on the stamp, inked the remainder in Pear Pizzazz and stamped it on my card panel.  Then I used little dots of Multi-Purpose Liquid Glue to adhere the Hello over the Spring – letting it err towards the left side of the panel (just a little), to help balance the card.

Vivid Vases Number of Years 2 - Stamps-N-Lingers

I popped the panel onto my card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card front was done.

Vivid Vases Number of Years 1 - Stamps-N-Lingers

On the inside, I stamped a Whisper White panel with more of the Number of Years stems and leaves in Wild Wasabi ink, then added the little flowers in Flirty Flamingo.  The design of the inside of the card repeats that of the card front.  All the measurements are the same, I added the same three-score-line frame, etc.  So, I matted the Whisper White panel on a piece of Flirty Flamingo, then onto the scored Blushing Bride panel and then SNAILd it all into my Flirty Flamingo card base.

Vivid Vases Number of Years 5 - Stamps-N-Lingers

I popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done! 🙂

Vivid Vases Number of Years 4 - Stamps-N-Lingers

For the Medium Whisper White Envelope, I repeated the flowers from Number of Years in Pear Pizzazz and Flirty Flamingo and Sweet Sugarplum…

Vivid Vases Number of Years 6 - Stamps-N-Lingers

…and then stamped the inside of the flap with Flirty Flamingo, Sweet Sugarplum and Wisteria Wonder little tiny flowers.

Vivid Vases Number of Years 7 - Stamps-N-Lingers

Et Voila!  A quick, clean and simple card, using one of the prettiest sets we have – Number of Years.  And Vivid Vases is surely going to be one that I’ll miss when it’s gone!  The Greetings Thinlits are super nice little words, useful on so many cards.

Since these things are retiring, be sure to snag them up before they’re gone!  Stamps will for sure be around until 31 May – but the rest is all while supplies last!  Don’t miss out! 🙂

Not many days left to got your Double Peppermint Rewards, Free Shipping and a guarantee of getting the new Annual Catalog for free.  Sunday is fast approaching….

See you tomorrow for the Happy Stampers Blog Hop – we’ll go live at 7am Eastern!

TTFN!

Stampin’ Up! Grateful Bunch and Petite Pairs Any Occasion card

Good morning! By the time you read this, I should be (all things being equal!) sitting on an airplane with Amy Koenders. Getting ready to wing our way to Salt Lake City. OnStage, baby!

Now, for those of you who don’t know me – I’m not really a “whoo-hoo”-er. I’ve been known to be a “WHOOP!”-er – but only at horse shows and only when my fave gaited Saddlebred is passing in front of me and I’m showing my support.

I. Don’t. Whoo-hoo. At least not “for real” – I might do it in jest…but that’s it!

Miss Amy said a scary thing the other day while we were on a Google Hangout meeting. It had to do with her plan to whoo-hoo on the plane.

A Lot.

🙁

I’m very much hoping she was joshin’ me! Otherwise, I’ll be obligated to disavow her. At least for the duration of the flight! Do lots of sleeping or pretending to sleep. Put my headphones in – hopefully there’s a good movie…

We’ll see what happens!

Any-hooch. Let’s talk about my card for today, shall we? 🙂

I went back to my favorite bundle in the Occasions catalog – the Grateful Bunch bundle. I played with some watercoloring and punching and and some Timeless Textures and then I added a sentiment from Petite Pairs. Fair warning….put yer shades on and take a look-see:
