Stampin’ Up! Sunshine & Rainbows of Happiness Sneak Peek Thank You!

Good morning!  And…happy last day of November 2021.  Can.  You.  Even.  Believe.  That?!?  Sheesh – the days are just flying by!!

Besides November – there’s ANOTHER thing that ends today!  And that’s the amazing Start With Savings Starter Kit Promotion.  In which you pay $75 plus tax and GET $125 in Stampin’ Up! product, free shipping and the keys to 20% off on EVERYTHING you buy!  What do you NOT get?  You won’t get a contract – you won’t have a commitment – you won’t get a hard-sell to sell.  Sorry – if that’s what you’re after…this isn’t the place!  Give me a holler if you’d like more deets – or…click right here to get started!  But…do it by 11:50 PM (MT) tonight before this great Starter Kit price goes away!

I pulled out another new couple of goodies – coming to you on 4 Jan (oh – that whole joining thing?  Join with me today and…order this TOMORROW! 🎉🎉🎉) in the Jan – Feb 2022 Mini catalog.  This bright, fun card features the new Rainbow of Happiness stamp set and bundled Brilliant Rainbow Dies!  And…some FREE paper!  The Sunshine & Rainbows 6″ x 6″ DSP will be FREE with a $50 purchase during Sale-A-Bration (4 Jan – 28 Feb).  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one comes from the sketch side of the Sugar Pea Designs Mix-It Up challenge.

…and the bright color palette is thanks to the Inspire. Create.  Challenge.

I started by embossing a piece of Basic White cardstock in the Hive 3D Embossing Folder (new in the Jan-Jun 2022 Mini and available on 4 Jan) and adhering it with Liquid Glue on the front of a Basic White cardstock.

I selected some likely DSP designs from the Sunshine & Rainbows 6″ x 6″ DSP (Sale-A-Bration!) and matted them on Flirty Flamingo, then adhered them to the card front – all with Liquid Glue.

I used the smaller rainbow die in the Brilliant Rainbow die set to cut out a rainbow printed on one design in the Sunshine & Rainbows DSP.  The die lines up perfeclty with the DSP – and cuts 4 perfect rainbow arcs!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere each piece of the die cut rainbow to a piece of Basic White cardstock.  Then I fussy cut around the complete rainbow.

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

I used the cloud dies to cut a few Basic White clouds and then discovered that the Thank You sentiment in the Rainbow of Happiness stamp set fit them PERFECTLY – so…I stamped three of them in Misty Moonlight!

I adhered one cloud (no sentiment) to the rainbow with Liquid Glue – then popped all three sentiment clouds on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added some new Brushed Brass Butterflies (these are ALSO new – and super super cool!) and the card front was done!

On the inside I stamped a second Rainbow of Happiness sentiment in Misty Moonlight on a Basic White panel.  I used another of the stamps to stamp a rainbow over top – I stamped it three times (offsetting it a smidge each time) – in Magenta Madness, Daffodil Delight and Granny Apple Green.  Then I added one more Brushed Brass Butterfly! 🙂

I used Stampin’ Seal to adhere the panel to a Flirty Flamingo mat and then into the Thick Basic White card base and the card was done!

My Basic White Medium Envelope got a repeat of the three-color rainbow on the front…

…and more of the Sunshine & Rainbows 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila! This new Rainbow of Happiness stamp set – with the bundled Brilliant Rainbow Die set is so bright and cheerful – and I love the sentiments (and the fun fonts!).  I am a HUGE fan of dies that cut images from Designer paper – and the Sunshine & Rainbows 6″ x 6″ DSP lets you do just that!

So – the Rainbow of Happiness bundle will be $44 in the new catalog.  Pick that – the Hive 3D Embossing Folder ($9) and a pack of the uber-awesome Brushed Brass Butterflies ($10) – and you can pick the Sunshine & Rainbows DSP for…FREE!!  Whoo-hoo!!

I hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix 

On Friday – Sonya picks up Finn’s toys and piles them in the “toy-bed”.  He has a…plethora…of toys.

As she walked out of the living room she asked Finn how long it would take for him to go start digging them out.

I said…about 30 seconds.

I was wrong by 3 seconds.

Mr. Turtle NEEDED to come back out.

No turtle-time-out today!

Stampin’ Up! Honeybee Home Sneak Peek with Biggest Wish Thanks

Happy Happy Hawwwmp Day – and happy Thanksgiving Eve!  Are you ready?  Today is cooking day – at least at my house.  My pressure cooker is going to be a-steaming away!

I’ve got a cool card – with a sneak peek of a bundle from the new Jan-Jun 2022 Mini Catalog – going live to you on 4 Jan 2022!  The Honeybee Home Bundle is one I was anxiously awaiting – and now…it’s all sticker-mounted and inked up!  I also borrowed a sentiment from the Biggest Wish set – available now in the Annual Catalog.  And…gorgeous Heart & Home DSP plays a major role.  Take a look-see:

 

I used the sketch from Sunday Stamps for the layout.

And – many elements are thanks to the inspiration from the As You See It challenge.

I started by adhering a piece of new Heart & Home DSP to an Early Espresso mat for the card front.

I cut a piece of Bumble Bee cardstock with a Stitched Rectangle Die, then embossed it in the new Hive 3D Embossing Folder (coming on 4 Jan in the Jan-Jun 2022 Mini Catalog).  I adhered the die cut to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I matted some gray woodgrain paper from Heart & Home DSP on Early Espresso and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

Then I used a little Liquid Glue to adhere a new Basic Gray Heart & Home Doily (coming in the new catalog on 4 Jan – and the pack has Cinnamon Cider, Basic Gray and Misty Moonlight doilies!)

I used the grass and flowers dies in the Honeybee Blooms Dies (bundled with Bumble Bee Home) to cut two from Bumble Bee and one from Cinnamon Cider cardstock.  These are adhered to the gray doily with Liquid Glue.

On a piece of Basic White, I stamped the sentiment from Biggest Wish in Bumble Bee ink.  Over it, I stamped a grasses image from Honeybee Home in stamped-off-once Cinnamon Cider.  Then I cut it with a Layering Circles Die and popped it onto the doily with Stampin’ Dimensionals.


I stamped a few little bee images from Honeybee Home in Basic Gray ink on Basic White and cut them with their matching dies in the Honeybee Blooms Dies.  I colored them with my Bumble Bee Stampin’ Write Marker.

Then I adhered the bees with Liquid Glue (the bottom bee has a Dimensional under his little bee-butt).

I tied a Linen Thread Double loop bow…

a. Wrap the Linen Thread around four fingers four times.
b. Without cutting the thread, wrap around two fingers four times.
c. Pull the loops off and squeeze the loops together.
d. Twist the loops one time around to create a “figure 8”.
e. Tie a second short length of Thread around the loops in the middle.
f. Spread the loops out to create a bow

…and adhered it with a Glue Dot.  To finish off, I added some Cinnamon Cider 2020-2021 In Color Squares and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped a sweet sentiment from Honeybee Home in Bumble Bee ink on a Basic White panel.  In the corner I used Bumblebee and Cinnamon Cider to stamp some Honeybee Home florals.

I used Stampin’ Seal to adhere the panel to an Early Espresso mat and into my Cinnamon Cider card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Basic White Medium Envelope got more of the Honeybee Home florals on the front…

…and more Heart & Home DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Seriously!?  The Honeybee Home stamp set and bundled Honeybee Flowers Die set is part of the Heart & Home Suite and…I love it SOOO much!  I mean…look at the font on those sentiments!

Combine it with the Heart & Home DSP and…think of what you can make!

I hope you like!

Now – if you’re wanting to get your hands on these goodies – or any OTHER from the new catalog – sooner than 4 Jan…well.  Take advantage of the amaze-balls Start with Savings Starter Kit promotion (pick $125 in goodies, get free shipping and pay just $75!!) and join my team right now!  THEN – on 1 December you (like I will be doing!) can place a pre-order and get the new goodies for yourself.  Including this suite!  Click here to get started – would love to have you on the team!

Stampin’ Up! Grateful Sparkle of the Season on Cork

Happy Happy Hawwwmp Day, y’all!  How goes the week!? We’ve been busy – Wayne on the building, me getting ready for OnStage@Home at the end of the week.

And…roasting peanuts!  Our friend brought us a BIG (😳😳) bag of peanuts and I’ve been trying to use them up before they…go bad?

Also – they taste really good roasted.  And boiled! 😉

So – I DO want to tell you about something coming next week (16 – 18 Nov) – it’s the Stampin’ Up! Seasonal Sale – and…it’s got some great discounts on cardstock, ink and die sets from the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog.  AND – you can combine the discounts with the Start with Savings Starter Kit special to get you some AMAZEBALLS savings!  All the deets are down below!! 🙂

My card today uses the wonderful Sparkle of the Season bundle (NOT from the annual catalog!), Nature’s Harvest DSP and…Cork Specialty Paper!  Take a look-see:

The wreath and layout are from the Inspired By challenge this week.

And The Card Concept was also inspirational – for the pumpkins and the color palette!  I’d call this style Freestyle Collage!

And the Tic-Tac-Toe challenge…well – I think I got everything BUT Gold Foil/Glitter!  😉

Thanks to the Sparkle of the Season bundle, this one was easy to put together.

To begin with, I cut a piece of Cork Specialty Paper to the same size as my Cajun Craze card base and adhered it to the front of the card with Liquid Glue.

I cut a smaller-than-usual piece of Harvest Meadow DSP, matted it on Evening Evergreen cardstock and adhered it to the card front with Stampin’ Seal.

Using the Seasonal Swirls dies (bundled with Sparkle of the Season), I cut a leafy wreath from the Cork Specialty Paper and one from Cajun Craze cardstock. I stacked them up on the card front with Liquid Glue.

I used more of the Seasonal Swirls dies to cut leaves from Cork Specialty Paper and Evening Evergreen 2021-2023 In Color Shimmer Vellum and Pumpkin Pie pumpkins.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere a Cork and a Shimmer Vellum leaf to the top back of each pumpkin, then I popped the pumpkins on to the wreath with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I tied a Half-Double-Loop Linen Thread bow (the picture below is a regular Double-Loop bow – they’re the same, just with fewer wraps!).

  1. Wrap the Linen Thread around four fingers TWO times.
  2. Without cutting the thread, wrap around two fingers TWO times.
  3. Pull the loops off and squeeze the loops together.
  4. Twist the loops one time around to create a “figure 8”.
  5. Tie a second short length of Thread around the loops in the middle.
  6. Spread the loops out to create a bow.

I adhered the bow to the side of the wreath with a Glue Dot.

On a piece of Very Vanilla, I stamped the Sparkle of the Season sentiment in Cajun Craze and cut it with the smallest, skinny Stitched Rectangle Die (my “go-to” sentiment die!) and popped it over the bow with double-stacked Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I used a little Liquid Glue to adhere two more leaves to the end of the sentiment, and then added Pumpkin Pie Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels here and there and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped a second Sparkle of the Season sentiment in Cajun Craze on a Very Vanilla panel.  Then I stamped the sweet little three-leaf image in Pumpkin Pie!

I used Stampin’ Seal to adhere the panel to an Evening Evergreen mat and into the Cajun Craze card base and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got those little Pumpkin Pie leaves on the front…

…and more of the Nature’s Harvest DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Yeah – you know I love how this card turned out!  The script-y paper from Nature’s Harvest DSP – the Cork Specialty Paper – the bundled up Sparkle of the Season wreath with the Linen Thread bow and simple sentiment.  It’s really DOES have all the things! 😉

I hope you like!
