Sympathy for Loss of a Pet

Stampin’ Up! Vine Design Heal Your Heart Pet Sympathy Card

Happy Tuesday, y’all!  We’ve had a spring snap (not trying to rub it in to my friends who are still cold and snowy!) and so it’s hard to stay inside and work!  I even planted seeds inside to get them started.  Too early?  Well…maybe.  But…couldn’t even resist!

My card today is one I did while we were chatting on my Zoom the Craftroom yesterday (I hope you’ll join us one day if you’re one of my customers who’ve ordered this month!! – and…it was nice to get a little feedback from my friends!).  This is a pet sympathy card – nope – do not even need one right now (wheeew!) but it’s good to have one on hand, right?  I used the pretty Vine Design Bundle, the Cat Punch and…the Heal Your Heart stamp set (free for a few more days until Sale-a-Bration ends on the 28th!!).  All set atop some pretty Love You Always Specialty DSP.  Take a look-see:

The color palette for this one is from the Inspire. Create Challenge this week.

And – The Paper Players challenge is a pretty obvious influence!  I think it’s pretty clean and simple.  😉

I started by adhering a piece of the Sahara Sand paper from Love You Always Specialty DSP to a Rococo Rose mat with Liquid Glue for the card front.  Then I matted a smaller piece and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I stuck a piece of Sahara Sand cardstock to a piece of Foam Adhesive Sheet.  Then I cut it with the detailed rectangle die in the Flowering Vine Die set.  I peeled the backing off and adhered it to the middle of the card.

I punched a black cat with the Cat Punch (sorry – Department of Redundancy Department! 😳) and adhered it with Liquid Glue.

On a piece of Blushing Bride, I stamped the sentiment outline from Vine Design in Blushing Bride ink.  I added a sentiment from the same set in Tuxedo Black and cut it with the matching die in the Flowering Vine set.  Then, I adhered it with Liquid Glue.

I added a couple of Pastel Pearls and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a sentiment – one of my favorites! – from Heal Your Heart in Tuxedo Black to a Basic White panel.  In the corners, I added the vine from Vine Design in Sahara Sand ink.

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

My Basic White Medium Envelope got the Vine Design image in Sahara Sand on the front…

… and more of the Love You Always Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I really love the tone-on-tone that I got with the Flowering Vine die cut in Sahara Sand cardstock on the foil-embossed Love You Always Specialty Paper, don’t you?  And Vine Design has several handy sentiments that fit perfectly in label die cut!  Heal Your Heart – what can I say?  It’s free with a $50 purchase for another couple of days.  And it’s filled with perfect sentiments!

Finn Fan Fix 

 

It’s getting to be time to start seeds inside – the days are getting longer and the spring weather is sneaking in every couple days.

I found an extra starting tray in the barn, so I brought it back to the house.

Decided to have Finn do a little work!

He may or may not have stopped to have a little gnaw on the corner… 🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️

Stampin’ Up! Vine Design and Pampered Pet Sympathy Card

Well.  It’s happened again.  The weekend flew by and it’s Monday again!  Can someone please explain to me why – even now that I’m retired – I still feel like I’m “going back to work tomorrow” on Sunday evening?  And…am excited and all….whew, it’s the weekend…on Friday evening??  It makes no sense! 🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️

My mom asked me for a pet sympathy card for a young lady who recently lost her dog.  Not a kid – not an adult.  A teenager.  So…I scrunched my eyes and wracked my brain and decided that the Vine Design Bundle – with a little help from Pampered Pets, the Dog Builder Punch and…the gorgeous (and FREE!) Flower & Field DSP from the Sale-A-Bration catalog would be just the ticket!  Take a look-see at what I came up with:

The layout for this one comes from the Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

I started with a Basic White panel that I embossed with a Stitched with Whimsy die and then matted on Basic Black for the card front.

I pulled out the Flower & Field DSP and cut three Flowering Vine label dies from one of my favorite designs in the pack.  Remember – this beautiful paper is a FREE option for you to select when you place a $50+ order before Shipping & Tax during Sale-A-Bration!!  Look at those gorgeous designs!!

I stamped the label frame from Vine Design in Cherry Cobbler ink on Basic White.  Then I added the sentiment in Granny Apple Green and cut it with the label die from the Flowering Vine set.

I adhered the three Flower & Field Flowering Vine die cuts to the card from with Liquid Glue.

Then I punched a Basic Black dog using the Dog Builder Punch – and adhered it with Liquid Glue.

I popped the die cut sentiment over top with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On another piece of Basic White, I stamped a small flower from Vine Design three times in Cherry Cobbler and cut them with their matching Flowering Vine die.  I added two to the sentiment label with Liquid Glue and the final one is popped on with a Stampin’ Dimensional up in the corner.

I added some Bumble Bee 2020-2022 Enamel Dots to the flowers and the card front was done!

On the inside, I used my Stamparatus to stamp part of one of the Pampered Pets sentiments in Granny Apple Green.  I used a sticky note to mask off the bottom of the sentiment image so that I only got the phrase that I wanted.  With the Dog Builder Punch – I cut three Cherry Cobbler hearts and part of a Basic Black Dog.  These are adhered with Liquid Glue.

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

My Basic White Medium Envelope got more Vine Design flowers (with Bumble Bee centers!) and some Pampered Pets hearts – all in Cherry Cobbler – on the front…

…and more of that pretty Flower & Field DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I think the combination of Pampered Pets and the Dog Builder Punch – with the gorgeous Flower & Field DSP – plus the Vine Design Bundle for a sentiment and that pretty die cut label – are perfect for this sympathy card.

I like that it’s not “IN YOUR FACE” with the pet piece but it’s quite obviously about a pet. I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Fine Art Floral Gallery Sneak Peek Fun-Fold with Video Tutorial

Happy 2021!!  I suspect most of us are hoping and praying that this is a better year – on so many levels! – than 2020 was.  I know – and you know – that it’s not going to change for the better overnight.  But…perhaps the light we’re seeing at the end of the tunnel is NOT a train.  Hope springs eternal. 🙂

My first card for the year comes with a video tutorial and, if you were able to join me yesterday on my You Tube channel, I appreciate you spending part of your New Year’s Eve with me!  If not, here’s the replay!  Hint: don’t be confused by the picture – I DID make a different card on the video.  But…it means you get a two-fer today! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Pampered Pets in Grace’s Garden

Well.  Here we are. Friday!  And – for some of you – today’s a holiday!  Cuz tomorrow we celebrate the birth of our nation!  I hope everyone has some plans – we’re going to TRY to go to our friend’s on Sunday for some social-distanced socializing!  Fingers crossed we get our taxes done by Sunday so we can make that happen!  I feel the need for a hamburger on the grill with friends!  And deviled eggs!  Yum!  And I’ve been collecting some dessert recipes that I’m itching to make when I have more-than-one-mouth to feed!

Speaking of taxes (look back a few sentences – I DID mention taxes!) – I am SO sorry that I wasn’t able to get together with y’all yesterday!  But – the COVID-push-back is almost over and…yep.  The taxman cometh!  So…gots to do what we gots to do!

My friend Jan – also one of the newest members of my Critters-N-Creatin’ Krew team! – came over on Wednesday and we made the card that I was going to make for you yesterday.  In fact, she was going to come over and sit in!  Maybe next week!

The card is a pet-sympathy card – using the Grace’s Garden stamp set and coordinating Garden Gateway Dies, plus the Pampered Pets bundle and a perfect sentiment from Peaceful Moments.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Happy Tails Pressed Petals Sympathy

Happy Monday, y’all!  Don’t know if you’re in a re-opening state or still in a state-of-self-isolation, but… I hope your week is shaping up to be a good one!  Are you planning a Cinco De Mayo celebration?  🙂

My card today is one I hate having to make.  My friend from work (pre-retirement!) lost his sweet German Shepherd Jenna last weekend. He was, understandably, pretty down in the dumps.  So…I figured I’d send them a card and a little gift.  I pulled out the retiring Happy Tails stamp set, added a Stitched Be Mine heart and set it all atop some retiring Pressed Petals Specialty DSP.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one was inspired by this week’s CAS Colours & Sketches challenge.

And – it fits well with the Addicted to CAS Code Word challenge!

So – I started with a piece of wood pattern paper in the gorgeous Pressed Petals Specialty DSP (you guys – this wonderful paper is leaving us and is only available while supplies last – don’t miss a chance to get another pack in your stash!).  I added a strip of the burlap design on the right side with some Liquid Glue.  Then I matted it on Basic Black for the card front.

I wrapped a length of 3/8″ Denim Ribbon (this is sticking around for another year – YEAH!!) around the seam – securing it in the back with a couple of Glue Dots.

I stamped the sentiment from Happy Tails in Night of Navy on another piece of burlap paper and cut it out with one of the hearts in the Stitched Be Mine die set.

With my Journaling Pen, I made a doodle-dot-dash border around the edge of the heart – then popped it onto the card front with Black Stampin’ Dimensionals.

With the Dog Builder Punch (which IS carrying over!), I punched a Basic Black dog (I know – not a GSD….best I could do!!) and adhered him with a combination of Liquid Glue and Black Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Also using the Dog Builder Punch, I punched a little Terracotta Tile heart and adhered it with a dab of Liquid Glue.

I tied a denim ribbon bow and adhered it with a Glue Dot – and that finished off the card front!

On the inside, I stamped a second sentiment from Happy Tails in Night of Navy on a Very Vanilla panel.  I added the paw print in Terracotta Tile right over the word “heart”.

Get it?  Paw print ON your heart?

Oh – check the gift…

Car Magnet.  See a theme?! 🙂

I added some more Terracotta Tile pawprints, then adhered the panel to a Basic Black panel and into my Terracotta Tile card base, popped the card front on with Black Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got more of the paw prints on the front…

…and some burlap paper – with more paw prints! – on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I am sorry to see Happy Tails leave us – it’s perfect for this kind of need, don’t you think?  And Keep Calm and Wag On isn’t too shabby for this time in the world, either, is it??

And there aren’t enough superlatives for the Pressed Petals Specialty DSP – if you don’t have some – get it RIGHT NOW.  If you have some, get MORE.  RIGHT NOW!!  Just sayin!

I hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix


When I start dinner in the late afternoon, the first step is to tidy the kitchen.

You know – so I can mess it up again.

This involves putting away the clean dishes from the dishwasher and loading the breakfast/lunch stuff.  It’s never a lot, but you know.

Finn watches very diligently.

He knows when I switch from “emptying clean” to “loading dirty”.

And the INSTANT I make that switch, he is right there lickinglickinglicking.

After dinner – he knows he doesn’t even have to wait, so he’s right there from the jump.  He especially loves when I’ve used the griddler for like…a steak.  Or a hamburger.  Or asparagus.  He’s not all that picky! 😉

Lick…..

Stampin’ Up! Let It Ride Flourishing Phrases

Happy happy HAWWWMP DAY!!!  Whoo-hoo!

I’ve got a clean and pretty-simple card today – it’s a sympathy card with the Let It Ride and Flourishing Phrases stamp sets from the Annual Catalog.  And – I managed to find another reason to use the Stitched So Sweetly Dies from the 2020 Jan-Jun Mini.  I LOVE that die set!  Take a look-see:

I started with a Very Vanilla panel that I embossed in the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder and matted on Mossy Meadow for the card front.

The art is from the Let It Ride stamp set – I stamped the horse in Crumb Cake ink on Very Vanilla.  I colored him with my Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush – picking up the ink from the lid of the Crumb Cake ink pad.

I added a little green at the bottom with my Light Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blend.

I matted the panel on Mossy Meadow and adhered the whole thing to the card front with Liquid Glue.

For the sentiment, I used my Stamparatus to stamp the sentiment from Flourishing Phrases on Very Vanilla, then I cut it with the wunnermus scalloped die from Stitched So Sweetly.

I popped the sentiment onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered a double-loop Linen Thread bow with a Glue Dot and that was it for the card front.

On the inside, I used the Stamparatus to add a second sentiment from Flourishing Phrases in Mossy Meadow to a Very Vanilla panel.  I stamped the image a couple of times to get it darker.  Over the top I stamped the trees image (just once!) from the Let It Ride set in Mossy Meadow.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Mossy Meadow 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 the horse head from Let It Ride in Crumb Cake on the front…colored the same way that I colored the horse on the front of the card…

…and the trees in Mossy Meadow on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  These two sets – Let It Ride and Flourishing Phrases – while not necessarily designed to work together….really do, don’t you think?  I love the pretty trees and the addition of the Pinewood Planks embossing brings it home.  I hope you like!

Happy Happy Hawmmmp Day!  And – it just occurred to me – now don’t be scared – there’s a little less than 10 months till Christmas!

Whaaaa???

More pressing and germain to this blog – we’re 2/3 of the way thru Sale-A-Bration, can you even believe it??  Just one more month to fill your tool chest with free goodies!

My card for today is one that I hate having to make – it’s to express my condolences to a friend for the loss off their pet. 🙁  But – I hope it’ll bring a smile – at least for a minute.  I used the new Happy Tails stamp set and bundled Dog Builder Punch – plus a Wonderful Floral Framelits die cut.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Happy Tails and Nine Lives 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 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.

I – sadly – needed a pet sympathy card.  My friend had to put their older kitty, Sam, to sleep earlier this week.  Sam lived with them, because his human Dad had agreed to adopt another kitty – who has turned out to be…less than thrilled with being a sibling.  Definitely needs to be an only child! So…Sam went to live – with my friend.  He saw his Dad a lot, so he was quite happy.  And, he was a very nice boy.

Anywho…I needed a card for his Dad.  I combined the Nine Lives stamp set images with the right sentiments from Happy Tails – then added in some All My Love DSP.  Take a look-see:

I’ve been waiting for a good dog stamp set – that would let me make sympathy cards for folks who’ve lost their fur-kids!  Non-cartoon-y ones, and this is a great add to my tool chest!

So – for today, I paired this new bundle with some All My Love DSP to make a sympathy card for the loss of a pet – just to have on hand!  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Blended Seasons Sorry for Everything!

Happy Happy Haawwmp Day, y’all!  The week is going quickly – and next week we’ve got a Holiday!!  Whoo-hoo!

And…something else is happening next week…

What is it…

It’s right on the tip of my tongue…

Hmmm…

Well – it’ll come to me I’m sure! 🙂

One thing I DO remember is that the cool Color Your Season promotion is ending this week -like…DAY AFTER TOMORROW!  That’s right, after Friday, you will NOT be able to pick up the lovely Blended Seasons stamp set and coordinating Stitched Seasons Framelits.  So…tarry not, okay?  Here’s a link right to them in my Online Store!

In fact, I’m so sure that you NEED this set that – for the next two days ONLY – everyone who orders the Color Your Seasons Bundle will get TRIPLE PEPPERMINT POINTS! 

Remember – this is only good thru the end of the day on Friday, 31 Aug AND you MUST order the BUNDLE to get the TRIPLE PEPPERMINTS! Got it!?

Now – today’s card is a sympathy card for a friend who lost her old dog this past Sunday. 🙁

I used the Blended Seasons stamp set as well as the Sorry For Everything set from the Annual Catalog, plus a few other fun goodies.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this card was based on this week’s Sunday Stamps sketch challenge.

And the color scheme comes from the Global Design Project challenge.

I’d wanted to use the Blended Seasons set today and, after seeing the pretty card that GDP Guest Designer Holley Smith made, I knew just what to make!

I started with a piece of Very Vanilla card stock and, using my Stamparatus, stamped the Tree Rings background image in Soft Suede.  Then I used a Sponge Dauber to sponge the edges in more Soft Suede.  I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Soft Suede mat.

The next layer is a piece of paper from the Garden Impressions DSP (yes, I know that’s Crushed Curry – it’s called artistic license…..hello?!) matted on Soft Suede and adhered to the card front with Liquid Glue.

My angled piece is yet another piece of Soft Suede that I cut to fit exactly on the angle depicted in the sketch, then I embossed it in the Corrugated Dynamic TIEF (coming next week in the….that’s IT!!  The 2018 Holiday Catalog goes LIVE next week on the 5th!!).  Once I sponged it with Soft Suede, I decided I wanted torn edges – so I tore the edges – then used Tear & Tape Adhesive to adhere it to the card front.

And then the fun began!

I stamped the pretty Blended Seasons leaves image on Whisper White, twice, in Soft Suede ink.  Then I used my Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends – both Light and Dark – and my Flirty Flamingo Light Blend – to color all the leaves.  I used my Soft Suede Light Blend for the little stems.  Then I fussy cut all the leaves!

My sentiment is from Sorry For Everything – it’s actually three separate images in the set – all stamped in Soft Suede on Very Vanilla.  I lightly flicked the edges of the sentiment with Soft Suede ink using a Sponge Dauber.  I used the same dauber to lightly sponge a Flirty Flamingo Colored Doily (just to tone it down a smidge).  That I adhered next with a little Liquid Glue.

I put some Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back of my sentiment and used them to wind a few loops of Linen Thread.

I added a few of the leaves to the card front with Liquid Glue, then popped the sentiment on with the Dimensionals.  Then I added the rest of the leaves with Liquid Glue or Liquid Glue and Mini Dimensionals.

I tied a Linen Thread Double-Loop Billie Bow and tucked it under the corner of the sentiment with a Glue Dot, added a few Pearl Basic Jewels and the card front was done!

On the inside, I simply stamped and colored the leaves from the Blended Seasons stamp set in Soft Suede, Daffodil Delight and Flirty Flamingo on a Very Vanilla panel.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Soft Suede 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 another set of Blended Season leaves on the front (don’t forget to slide a piece of plastic or something into the envelope to keep the Stampin’ Blends from bleeding thru to the back)…

…and I added a bit more of the Garden Impressions DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This Blended Season stamp set has such gorgeous images in it – I particularly love these leaves!  And the matching Stitched Seasons Framelits feature some really cool inside AND outside stitching!  And – this card would work as a general sympathy card (not necessarily just for someone who’s lost a fur-child) – thanks to the wonderful sentiment in the Sorry For Everything stamp set.  I hope you like!

I also hope that – if you haven’t already – you’ll add this bundle to your tool box.  And earn those Triple Peppermint Rewards!!  Hurry quick!

TTFN

Finn Fan Fix

I suppose I’ve mentioned – a time or two! – that Finny likes to nap.

He likes to play and run and roughhouse, too -but…he really likes to nap. 🙂

Which works out pretty well for us (me in particular!).  I can set at my craft table or my work computer and do what I need to do.

And he…just finds a cool spot – in front of the A/C register or the fan in the bedroom…and sleeps the afternoon away.

After a couple of hours he wakes up and comes over to wherever I’m sitting.

Probably needs to go out.

But – I like to think that he ALSO wants a little Mom-lovin’!  So – I give it to him!

And take a couple of us-ies!!  Please disregard my hair.  And lack of make-up.  Wasn’t ready for my close-up, Mr. DeMille! 😉

Mom’s do the most embarrassing things!! 🙂
