Thank You Cards

Stampin’ Up! Amazing Ornate Borders Thank You Card

Good morning, y’all!  Hope you had a wonderful weekend and Palm Sunday!

Now, my card today, by rights, should be an anniversary card.

For me and Wayne.  For THIRTY YEARS!  Wha….?  Whe….??  HOW the heck did that happen?!?  Feels like a really long time some days – and others?  Like a blink.  It truly is hard to believe so many years have passed.

Our anniversary rituals are pretty ingrained – so it’s simply devastating to be confined to the house this year.  We usually dress up in our finest – go out to a fancy restaurant…maybe a movie or dancing after.

ROFL!!!  Oh stop – I’m killing myself!!

Our “ritual” is to…pretty much totally forget the day!  Like…three days AFTER, we’ll look at each other and be like…did we miss our Anniversary again?  How many years WAS this!?

Yeah.  We are romantic devils, for certain sure!  So being confined to the house is no big.  🙂

So – my ACTUAL card today is a clean-and-simple thank you card made with elements of the new Ornate Garden Suite – and a couple of embossing folders.  Take a look-see:

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

And it fits perfectly with the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.

I started with a piece of Whisper White card stock that I embossed twice.  The first time was in the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder – and I only did about 1/3 of the right side of the panel.  I embossed the other side in the Scripty 3D Embossing Folder.  Then I matted the panel on So Saffron for the card front.

Using one of the dies in the Ornate Borders die set, I cut out a piece from some Old Olive cardstock.  With my Paper Snips, I carefully snipped off part of the die cut – then I adhered the remainder with Liquid Glue, right over the “seam” between the two embossed portions.

From So Saffron card stock, I cut the three flowers from Ornate Borders and adhered them to the die cut with Liquid Glue.

I stamped the sentiment from Ornate Thanks in Old Olive on Whisper White and cut it with the smallest narrow Stitched Rectangle Die.   Then I popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Each flower got a pink Frosted Flower Embellishment and a Rhinestone Basic Jewel in the middle.  Then, I added a final Rhinestone to the sentiment and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a second sentiment from Ornate Thanks in Old Olive on Whisper White.  Under that, in Blushing Bride, I added another sentiment.  I stamped the little Ornate Style flower in Old Olive and colored it with my Light Old Olive and Light So Saffron Stampin’ Blends.

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Ornate Style flowers on the front…

…and a little Blushing Bride paper from the Subtles 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I am love love loving all the sentiment combinations we can make with the wonderful – and HUGE! – Ornate Thanks stamp set!  And the bundled Ornate Borders die set gives super fun decorative options!  I hope you like and are ADDING THIS SUITE to your stash!!  Be sure to check out my money-saving limited time Special Bundle offer down below!

Finn Fan Fix


Warning – non-Finn-Finn-Fan Fix ahead! 😉

So…my day revolves around satisfying every whim of my tyrannical little cat.

She wants three things from me.

Food – a very specific couple of kinds (don’t even TRY to mess with this) – and as frequently as it occurs to her to want said food.

Pettings – on her timeline and to her exacting specification.

Laptime.

Mornings go like….wake up.  Feed the cat.  Put the dog out.  Make my coffee.  Put dog bone in bowl.  Let dog in.  Pick up cat bowl (unless I just WANT Finn to clean it all up).  Then…sit down and…hold the cat.

Evenings.  Feed the cat.  Feed the dog.  Feed the people.  Sit down and…yes.  Hold the cat.

She’s an old lady.  Gonna be a bit of a hole when she leaves us, wouldn’t you say?

In totally different news… the other day on one of my videos, I mentioned freezing eggs.  Here’s what they look like…

I fork-beat one or two eggs in a bowl and pour them into a silicone ice cube tray (I got this one on Amazon but it’s showing out of stock):

Freeze.  The cubes pop out super easy and then I just store them in gallon freezer bags.  Awesome for scrambled eggs or recipes needing eggs!  They are, however, not even SORT of good if you’re wanting an egg over easy!  😉

Stampin’ Up! Ornate Garden Early Release Suite Now Available!

Happy Happy HAWWWMP Day!  And – Happy “Go-Live” Day to the new Ornate Garden Suite!!  Whoo-hoo!

I’ve been showing you lots of samples of this cool new suite – you know it’s an Early Release from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog, right?  And it’s awesome!

I’ve got another card for you today, using the Ornate Style and Ornate Thanks stamp sets, a little of the Ornate Garden Specialty DSP and the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder.  Take a look-see:

This fun layout is inspired by this week’s CAS(E) This Sketch challenge.

And the color palette is from the Fab Friday color challenge.

I started with a panel of Whisper White.  I ran just the right side – about 1 1/2″ – thru the die cutting machine in the new Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder.

Then I used my Paper Trimmer to cut a triangle of the gold-foil embossed Ornate Garden Specialty DSP – it’s about 1 1/2″ across at the top and 5 1/8″ long – cut on a diagonal to create a point.

I used my Daffodil Delight and Mango Melody Stampin’ Blend Combo Packs and the Light Pumpkin Pie Blend to color the flowers.  Then I used Liquid Glue to adhere it to the card front.

Then I matted the panel on Mango Melody.

Using Glue Dots on the back of the card front, I adhered two lengths of Terracotta Tile ribbon from the Ornate Garden Ribbon Combo Pack.

On a piece of Whisper White, I stamped one sentiment from Ornate Thanks in Terracotta Tile and a second sentiment in Pumpkin Pie.  Then I cut it with a Stitched Rectangle Die.

I popped the sentiment on with Stampin’ Dimensionals, added a small Gilded Gem and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a third sentiment from Ornate Thanks in Pumpkin Pie on a Whisper White panel.  In each corner, I added a flourish in Terracotta Tile.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Mango Melody mat and into my Pumpkin Pie card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Terracotta Tile flourishes on the front…

…and more Blends-colored Ornate Garden Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  SO many ways to put all the pieces, parts, images and sentiments together in this spectacular new Ornate Garden Suite!  From the Ornate Thanks and Ornate Style stamp sets, to the bundled Ornate Layers and Ornate Borders dies…and the gorgeous Ornate Garden Specialty DSP is stunning!  I hope you like and – are rushing to get yours ordered right now!

Here’s a quick video about this cool new Suite! 🙂03.03.20_TH_VIDEOSCREEN1_ORNATE_GARDEN_NA

Finn Fan Fix


In these chaotic and troubled times, I’m glad that we have our own ZEWS. Zombie Early Warning System.

Behold.  ZEWS Sentry – Deploy.

ZEWS 1 – in strategic position.

That locale was carefully selected by ZEWS 1 – it offers 180 degrees of overwatch of both the house and the barn.  The road behind him – an obvious ingress point for zombies – he covers with his cat-like hear-stuff-sneaking-up-behind-him senses.

He remains ever-vigilant.

His request for a ghillie-suit was obviously denied and he sort of sticks out.  But…stealth is not his weapon of choice.

Vocalizing the threat is his forte.

And a deep suspicion – which is good for a ZEWS Sentry.  Cuz Zombies are…everywhere.  And well disguised.

Maybe…

Definite possibility.

Is there any doubt??


Vigilance is key.  ZEWS 1 must remain alert at all times.  It’s in the code.

Wargaming is important, though.  Critical to think thru the steps if the hoard should lumber over the hill.  You KNOW they’d come from the back.

Zombies are pretty smart.

Not everyone knows that.

Wargaming COULD be misconstrued for napping on duty.

It’s not.

Napping.

He’s deep in strategery-izing….

Stampin’ Up! Ornate Style with Thoughtful Blooms Sneak Peek

Good morning, y’all!  Hope you’ve got a great weekend at home planned!  This is our “planting” weekend – we got the peppers, tomatoes and lettuce starts in the beds last night.  The rose, raspberries and blueberries are soaking their roots in preparation for planting.  And – I’ve got flowers started to put in, too!  AND – more seeds coming soon!  I LOVE spring!

Also?  My three hydrangeas all have leaves, so…I didn’t kill them with my not-so-knowledgeable pruning this past fall!  Whoo-hoo.  I’m like…almost a Master Gardener.  Go me! 🙂

Since it’s Saturday, I figured we’d try to get together tonight on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page for a little video time together.  So…I’ll be live at 7pm Eastern and we’ll make a fun-fold that I blatantly stole from my teammate.  We’re going to take a look at the new Ornate Garden Suite…and Thoughtful Blooms.  Yes – I’m seriously in a flowerdy mood.  Take a sneaky peek!

It’s a super easy fun fold – and the Ornate Garden Suite really makes it a stand-out!  So…I hope you can join me!

Tonight.  7pm Eastern.  Right here! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Ornate Garden Thanks Sneak Peek

Happy Happy Haawwwwmmmp DAY!!!  Hope you’re enjoying your Social Distancing.

Let me re-phrase.  I hope you are DOING your Social Distancing.

Seriously.  Do it! 😉

While you’re distancing yourself in our efforts to flatten the curve, I hope you’re doing some crafting.  And…looking forward to the cool Early Release of the Ornate Garden Suite.  It’s a new suite coming in the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.  And…Stampin’ Up! is letting us play with it early!  Demonstrators are already having fun with it – customers will get your chance on 1 April!

In an effort to fan the flames of your excitement – and also cuz it’s COOL!! – I played with the Ornate Style and Ornate Thanks Bundles, plus the gorgeous Ornate Garden DSP and Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder for today’s card.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from this week’s TGIF Challenge.

I started with a piece of the Ornate Garden DSP that I matted on Terracotta Tile for the card front.  Then I cut a smaller piece of Blushing Bride with the edge die in the Ornate Borders die set (which is bundled with the Ornate Thanks stamp set).

I embossed the die cut panel in the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

For the sentiment, I stamped the larger word from Ornate Thanks in Old Olive on a piece of Whisper White.  Above that, in Terracotta Tile, I added the smaller sentiment.  Isn’t that font wunnermus?  I love it!

I used the rectangle die in the Ornate Layers Dies (bundled with the Ornate Style set) to cut the sentiment.  Since the die is longer than I wanted my sentiment, I ran it thru my die cutting machine a couple of times to make it shorter.

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

I pulled out the Cherry Blossoms Dies and used the leaves cut-and-emboss dies to cut Mint Macaron and Old Olive Leaves.  With the flower dies from the Ornate Borders set, I cut some Blushing Bride and Whisper White flowers.  Then I adhered them into little flower stacks with Liquid Glue.

I laid out all the flowers and leaves and took my picture…

I used Liquid Glue to adhere all the leaves in place.  The flower stacks all have little pieces of Stampin’ Dimensional and Liquid Glue to adhere them.

I added a Gilded Gem (part of the Ornate Garden Suite) to the middle of each flower stack and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added another Ornate Thanks sentiment to a Whisper White panel in Old Olive.  I stamped a couple of the floruishes from Ornate Style in the corners in Terracotta Tile.  Across the bottom I adhered a Terracotta Tile mat and a strip of the Ornate Garden DSP.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Terracotta Tile mat and into my Blushing Bride card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Ornate Style flourishes in Terracotta Tile on the front…

…and more of the Ornate Garden DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I love this Ornate Garden Suite – the two bundles that anchor it – Ornate Style and Ornate Thanks – are wonderful and complement each other perfectly!

Add these elements to the Ornate Garden DSP – and you’ve got projects galore just waiting for you to create them!  I hope you like….and are counting the days until you can get this suite for yourself!

If you want to recreate this card – all the Stampin’ Up! products you need are listed down below along with the card cuts!

Stampin’ Up! Make a Splash 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 color challenge to help jump-start your creative mojo this week!  I hope you’ll come and play along.  🙂

I decided – when I saw the color palette – that this would be a great time to pull out my Make A Splash stamp set.  This is a host-exclusive set – meaning that you have to have Stampin’ Rewards to purchase it.  And…you get Stampin’ Rewards EITHER by hosting a workshop with orders totalling over $150 OR you place an individual order over $150.  Or…you can even choose it as your ordering gift when you order $50 or more from me!  Just throwing that out there!  Take a look-see:

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

The layout for this one comes from the Global Design Project challenge this week.

I started with a piece of paper from the Birthday Bonanza DSP – it’s the same size as the front of a card base (4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″) – that I adhered to the front of a Coastal Cabana card base with Liquid Glue.

Then I built my focal art.

I stamped the fish bowl from Make A Splash in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  Across the bottom, in Coastal Cabana, I added “gravel”.

I stamped a couple of cute fishies in Calypso Coral and some grasses in Bermuda Bay and Coastal Cabana.

And – I wasn’t going to do it, but…I fussy cut a couple of fish sticky note masks…just couldn’t help it very much.

…and laid them over the fish so I could get grass “behind” them.  I even used some stamped-off-once Calypso Coral for a few more plants in the bowl!  Fish need plants, right??

I also added a stamped-off-once Coastal Cabana “waterline” and some bubbles in both blues.

For the sentiment, I pulled out the Coordinating Product Special Sending Flowers Dies.  First I cut the Calypso Coral banner for a “mat”.  The sentiment, from Make A Splash, is stamped in Coastal Cabana ink on a 3/8″ wide strip of Whisper White.

Then I laid that strip inside the cutting edge of the same Sending Flowers die – and ran it back thru my die-cutting machine.  That created the exact banner end as the mat!

I popped the sentiment over the mat with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Using Liquid Glue, I adhered the panel to a Calypso Coral mat and then to the card front.

On the inside, I didn’t use a sentiment.  Instead – I fussy cut a shorter-grass sticky note mat and created a little scene in the corner.  Here’s how.

  1.  Stamp the short grass in Coastal Cabana.
  2. Cover the image with the mask.
  3. Stamp the fish in Calypso Coral – leave it on the card stock (you can even rock it a SMIDGE!!) for a beat or two to let the ink get onto the panel good.
  4. Cover the fish with the mask (remember – the short grass sticky note mask is still in place).
  5. Stamp the larger grass in Bermuda Bay.
  6. Use Coastal Cabana to add the gravel image underneath.
  7. Add bubbles in Coastal Cabana.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Calypso Coral mat and into the Coastal Cabana card base and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got the same little fish scene on the front…

…and I added some Birthday Bonanza DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Isn’t this a fun set!?  It’s got several nice sentiment phrases in that small scripty-font I like so much and plenty of fishy images (including a really cute crab!) to make all kinds of fun underwater scenes!

I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Ornate Garden Suite Sneak Peek Video Tutorial

Good Friday morning, y’all!!  Hoping your week has been good and your weekend is looking to be a good one.  Are you stocking up on water, toilet paper, hand sanitizer, etc? If you listen to the news at all…man – what a goat rope – the media is having a hey-day stirring the coronavirus pot, aren’t they??  I mean – WE built an underground bunker JIC, but…I draw the line at buying 87 cases of water and toilet paper!  Now…87 cases of Dimensionals?  Hmmm…. 😉

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’ve posted that we have a new suite coming to y’all soon.  It’s an Early Release from the upcoming 2020-2021 Annual Catalog (yes – that’s right around the corner – Christmas can’t be far behind! 😳😳😳😳).  The Ornate Garden Suite is….gorgeous.  And you can get it on 1 April (unless you’re a Demonstrator – or sign up now, then…it could already be on the way to you!).  I used it to make a Double-Easel Fun Fold card.  Take a look-see:

 

I first saw this fold  from Janie – the Craft Princess out on YouTube.  I watched her video to see the card cuts and then…made it for myself with this gorgeous new suite.  I love the multiple spots available to showcase the beautiful Ornate Garden DSP!  You guys know I love an easel card – so…TWO easels on ONE card? Yes, please! 🙂

The concept is easy – create a large easel card and a baby easel card.  Attach the baby easel to the large easel to act as the “easel stop”.  I made my easel card bases in Old Olive for this one.

On the front of the large easel, I used Liquid Glue to adhere a piece of Ornate Garden DSP.

Using the Ornate Layers Dies (which is bundled with the Ornate Style stamp set as part of the new suite), I cut a Terracotta Tile frame.  HINT:  These are very detailed dies – I highly recommend that you grab the Take Your Pick Tool (if you don’t have it already) AND the Die Brush Tip.  You’re going to want it! 😉

Atop that, on Whisper White, are three Tuxedo Black Memento Ink daisies from the Ornate Style set.  I colored them with my So Saffron and Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blends Combo – plus a little Light Calypso Coral.  In the corner is a Terracotta Tile flourish from the Ornate Style set.

The mini-me easel has more Ornate Garden DSP, matted on Terracotta Tile on the front and “inner liner”.  Notice that there is Gold Foil embossing on some of the papers in the DSP pack! Sweet!! 🙂

I stamped a sentiment from the Ornate Thanks set in Terracotta Tile on Whisper White and cut it with a Stitched So Sweetly Die (“adjusting” the die to make it a little longer than it actually is!).

I made a figure-eight from Linen Thread wrapped around my hand four times and adhered it to the front of the mini-easel with Glue Dots – then I popped the sentiment over top with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The easel stop for mini-me is a stacked flower cut with three dies in the new Ornate Borders Die set (which will be bundled with the Ornate Thanks stamp set.

Folks – this stamp set is SO cool – with wonderful phrases in a beautiful scripty-handwritten font – you’ll be able to say Thank You about a gazillion different ways!!

Anywho – I cut the large flower in Crushed Curry (cuz…I don’t have “Bumblebee” colors yet.  Yes – that’s a HINT!!), the medium flower in Terracotta Tile and the smallest in So Saffron.  Then I stacked them up with Liquid Glue, added a new Gilded Gem (from the Suite!) and then popped it into place with a Stampin’ Dimensional.

For the inside, I added another piece of Ornate Garden DSP (I decided to use the same design as the front of the mini-easel) matted on Terracotta Tile to the inside of the large card base.  On a Whisper White die cut frame (a smaller frame from the Ornate Layers set), I stamped one of the many sentiments from Ornate Thanks in Terracotta Tile ink.  I adhered that at the top of the inner liner.  Then I popped the mini-easel on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

And that’s it for the card!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more daisies on the front…

…and more pretty Ornate Garden DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Oh my goodness, y’all!!  I.  Love.  This.  New.  Ornate Garden Suite!  The two beautiful bundles….Ornate Thanks and Ornate Style….are perfectly complemented by the gold-foil accented Ornate Garden DSP.  So many sentiments – such beautiful flowers – and I haven’t even talked about the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder.  What???

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 – if you want this suite RIGHT NOW – then I can help you join the team and get it for yourself!  Just give me a holler!

We have 30 acres of land.  Now – granted – there’s a lot of trees and fenced areas not useful for parking cars/trucks/tractors/equipment/etc.  BUT – there is, indeed, a lot of road and out-of-the-way places, too.

My husband – bless his heart – can, with unerring accuracy – park one of the aforementioned items RIGHT.  SMACK.  DAB.  in the middle of…wherever I need to be able go – on the four-wheeler, with the horses, in the golf-cart.

Un.  Erring.  Accuracy.

And – he doesn’t even need a GPS – a laser – a micrometer….nuthin’.

Apparently – Finn IS his father’s son.

Case in point.

Go ahead – roll the laundry cart past him.

I’ll wait. 😉

Stampin’ Up! Bold and Beautifully Braided 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 theme challenge (heat embossing!)- to help jump-start your creative mojo this week!  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 saw a card out on the interwebs somewhere…can’t for the life of me find it again 🙁 ….that I loved.  So…I decided to try the technique today and share it with you!  Turns out – it’s easy.  My version uses gold heat embossed images from the Beautifully Braided stamp set.  Take a look-see:

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

And – I used colors inspired by this week’s FabFriday challenge.

I started with a piece of Basic Black cardstock and, using my Stamparatus, I stamped the big flower image from Beautifully Braided in Versamark Ink.  Then I sprinkled it with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heated it up with my Heat Tool.  I did the exact same thing on a piece of Whisper White.

I matted the black panel on Petal Pink cardstock to create the card front.  Then I wrapped a piece of Rococo Rose 1/2″ Gathered Ribbon, securing it with a little SNAIL on the front and in the back with Glue Dots.

On the Whisper White images, I carefully colored the flowers with my Dark Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blend.  HINT:  be careful – the alcohol ink will react with the embossing – so color carefully and avoid the embossed portions as much as you can!  With my Light Pretty Peacock Blend, I colored a few strips here and there.

Using my Paper Snips, I fussy cut the flowers.

To adhere the colored flowers to the card front, I used Black Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals on the tops of the flowers and a dab of Liquid Glue at the bottom.  When I stuck each flower on – the top is popped up and the base is flat to the card front.

On a seperate piece of Basic Black, I stamped the sentiment from Beautifully Braided in Versamark, sprinkled it with Shimmer White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat set it.  When it was cool, I cut it out with a label die from the Stitched So Sweetly die set.

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

I added some Pretty Peacock Rhinestones from the Noble Peacock Rhinestone pack and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a second sentiment from Beautifully Braided in Rococo Rose on a Whisper White panel.  In the corner, I again heat embossed part of the flower.  It’s colored with the Dark Mint Macaron and Light Pretty Peacock Blends.

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more embossed and colored flowers on the front…

…and some Rococo Rose paper from the 2019-2021 In Color 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila! The flower image in Beautifully Braided is so fun and different, isn’t it?  It looks exotic and I love how it turned out embossed against the black.  Is it just me or does this look like a flower you might find on Pandora from Avatar?  😉  Just sayin!

I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Thanks for the Laughs My Meadow 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 sketch challenge – and I’m excited to see what everyone brings to the table!  I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop today!

Now – y’all know (I think?) that I love the angled-panel design element on a card.  So – I was tickled when I saw our challenge this week.  I combined some Lily Impressions DSP and the My Meadow and Thanks for the Laughs stamp sets to create my project for you today.  Take a look-see:

And here’s our sketch!

I started with a piece of Gray Granite card stock that I embossed in the Stone 3D Embossing Folder (which is bundled with the Power of Hope stamp set – and you can get it for FREE during Sale-A-Bration with a $100 purchase!).  I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to the front of my Gray Granite card base.

I used the largest Stitched So Sweetly rectangle die to cut some Gorgeous Grape paper from the Lily Impressions DSP, which I adhered with Liquid Glue at an angle onto the card front.

For the art panel – I cut the same size rectangle from Whisper White.  Then I built my little scene using the wonderful My Meadow stamp set – which is photopolymer, so super easy to get images right where you need them! 🙂

I used Balmy Blue to create a stream.  Then, with my Stamparatus, I stamped the bridge in Crumb Cake.  Using my Crushed Curry Stampin’ Write Marker – I colored part of the bridge image and stamped it again.

I added trees in Soft Suede and used the leaves image to stamp multiple times in Old Olive and Granny Apple Green.  I also added hillsides on either side of the bridge in Granny Apple Green.

Some Granny Apple Green grass with Gorgeous Grape flowers run across the bottom of the panel.  The clouds – another image from the set – are stamped in stamped-off-once Balmy Blue.

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

I used some SNAIL to adhere a length of Granny Apple Green 1/2″ Textured Weave Ribbon.

For the Thanks for the Laughs sentiment, I used Gorgeous Grape ink to stamp it on Whisper White.  A Granny Apple Green and Gorgeous Grape flower adds a little oomph.

I cut the sentiment with a Stitched Rectangle Die and popped it on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  A green Noble Peacock Rhinestone finished the sentiment and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a second Thanks for the Laughs sentiment in Gorgeous Grape.  Some more trees in Soft Suede, Granny Apple Green and Old Olive in the corner, plus some flowers brought it all home.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere another angled piece of Lily Impressions DSP to the inside of my card front, then added the sentiment panel over that – and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more trees on the front….

…and more of the Gorgeous Grape Lily Impressions DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  My Meadow is one of the fun scene-builder stamp sets that Stampin’ Up! offers!

Since it’s an image-only set,  the sky’s the limit on what sentiments you add to make your card perfect for its intended use!  And – speaking of sentiments – the Thanks for the Laughs set is so much fun – with witty sentiments and serious sentiments.  Perfect!

I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Layered With Kindness Thank You

‘Sup, y’all??  Hope you’re enjoying a three-day weekend!  🎶🎵🎶Happy Birthday, Mr. Presssideeeeeeentttt…… 🎵🎶🎶  🙂

My card today uses the new Layered with Kindness stamp set, with the coordinating Label Me Fancy and Label My Lovely Punches.  I added a little Parisian Flourish Embossing, just for ducks.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one comes from this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

And the color scheme is from the Color Throwdown challenge…

I started with a piece of Whisper White that I embossed in the Parisian Flourish 3D Embossing Folder, then matted on Highland Heather for the card front.  The next layer is a strip of Smoky Slate checked paper from the Neutrals 6″ x 6″ DSP, matted on Highland Heather and adhered with Liquid Glue.

I wrapped a length of Mint Macaron 1/8″ Sheer Linen Ribbon around the DSP panel, securing it in the back with Glue Dots.

For the art panel, I stamped the beautiful DistINKtive leaves image from the Layered in Kindness set in Mint Macaron on a piece of Whisper White.  I stamped the leaves twice without re-inking, then turn the paneled 180 degrees and stamped them from that direction – again twice without re-inking.  Using the sweet little flower image, I stamped a few times by the leaves in Highland Heather.

Then I matted the panel on Highland Heather and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

On a piece of Smoky Slate, I stamped the Happy Birthday image from the Layered With Kindness set in Mint Macaron ink.  Then I cut it with the Label Me Lovely Punch and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

On Whisper White, in Highland Heather ink, I stamped the thank you sentiment.  Then I cut IT out with the Label Me Fancy Punch and popped it over the Smoky Slate label with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I tied a little bow from the Mint Macaron 1/8″ Sheer Linen Ribbon and adhered it with a Glue Dot.  To finish things off, I added some Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the centers of the flowers.  And that was it for the card front!

On the inside, I stamped the leaves in Mint Macaron – twice without re-inking – on the bottom of a Whisper White panel and added some Highland Heather flowers.

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more flowers and leaves from Layered With Kindness on the front…

…and another piece of Smoky Slate checkered paper on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Wow – how pretty did those Layered With Kindness flowers and leaves turn out in Mint Macaron and Highland Heather?!?  I love this flower image – it’s one of my favorites now that I’ve played with it a bit!  I have no idea what kind they are – but I’d sure love a giant field of them outside my house!  The coordinating Label Me Lovely and Label Me Fancy Punches are perfect with this set, too!

I hope you like and are adding this little group to your must-have list!  If you want to recreate this card – all the Stampin’ Up! products you need are listed down below along with the card cuts!

Did you know…you could pick this whole threesome and STILL have $71 dollars left over to spend if you bought a Starter kit today?  PLUS – you’d get the super cool Mini Cutter, a sampler pack of Designer Paper AND your choice of ANY STAMP SET in the Catalog!!  WOWZA!!  Give me a holler and let me help you join my Stampin’ Up! team today – I’d love to have you on board! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Music From The Heart Thanks

‘Sup, y’all!?  Hope your week is going well!

So – we’re almost one-third of the way thru Sale-A-Bration.  Wow.  Hard to believe!  Be sure to check out all the great shopping – hosting – and JOINING benefits that happen in Sale-A-Bration, okay?  All the deets you need are down below or over on my Stampin’ Up! Promotions page.  I’d love to have you on my Critters-N-Creatin’ Krew team – give me a holler if you have any questions!  🙂

My card today is a simple little number – barely any fussy cutting at all! – using the sweet Music From The Heart stamp set.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from this week’s CAS(E) This Sketch challenge – you can see I turned it on its head! 🙂

And the color palette is from the Inspire.Create  Challenge.

I started with a piece of Whisper White for the card front, matted on Flirty Flamingo.

From another piece of Whisper White, I cut the largest label die in the new Stitched So Sweetly Die set.

On that label, in Pretty Peacock, I stamped the sentiment from the Music From The Heart stamp set.  Next to it – allowing it to spill off the left side of the label, I added the piano image in Early Espresso.  With my Blender Pen – I lightly pulled some ink out into the image to shade and color it a little.

I stamped the piano again on a piece of scrap Whisper White and colored the heart with my Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blends Combo Pack.  Then I fussy cut the heart.

I laid the die cut sentiment label onto the card front where I wanted it and used the music notes in the stamp set to add my “music”.  I used Pretty Peacock for the heart note (with the first one overlapping the edge of the die cut) and Flirty Flamingo for the others.  Some of the eighth notes are in stamped-off-once Flirty Flamingo.  I added some little Flirty Flamingo hearts, too.

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

Then I used a Mini Stampin’ Dimensional at the top of the fussy cut heart – and a little Liquid Glue at the bottom – and popped the heart in place.  And – that was it for the card front!

On the inside, I added a second Music From The Heart sentiment in Pretty Peacock to a Whisper White panel.  Across the bottom I added the music staff image in Flirty Flamingo, then added the treble clef in Early Espresso and a few Pretty Peacock notes.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Flirty Flamingo mat and into my Early Espresso card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got some Pretty Peacock and Flirty Flamingo musical notes on the front…

…and the full musical “score” on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I love the gentle punniness of the sentiments in the Music From The Heart stamp set – and the notes and staff and and and….well.  I love it all!  I hope you like!
