Thank You Cards

Stampin’ Up! Daisy Delight Corner Pop-Up Card – and Blog Candy!

Hey, y’all – it’s Monday!  Bleh.  No.  Really.

Bleh bleh bleh!!  Yes, I’m happy to be home, but…I’d like a month of weekends, please!  And no work.  And no specter of future travel to places in Utah….I say again. BLEH BLEH BLEEEEEHHHHH!!

Okay – my self-blehing pity party is over.

Thank you for listening!

If you were able to join me last night on Facebook (thank you!) you saw me make today’s fun-fold card.  If you weren’t able to join – here’s a link to the video on You Tube!  Enjoy…

I used the Daisy Delight stamp set and matching Daisy Punch to make this one.  And a little bit of Wood Textures DSP.  Take a look-see:

Oh wait – yes, that’s quite pretty, no doubt.  But here’s the fun part!

Cool, huh?

So – the video shows all the how-to’s and where for’s.  But, basically, you start with an 8″ x 8″ piece of card stock and then do some scoring and a little folding.  Cut out a corner and then, with a little Tear and Tape, you end up with a square, corner pop-up card to decorate!

Now – I’d seen a card quite similar to this out on Pinterest, so I decided to try it for myself.  I used the light whitewashed design in the Wood Textures DSP on three panels – all matted on Cajun Craze.

I cut a hole in the front panel, added a sentiment from Daisy Delight in Cajun Craze ink and then added a scalloped-edge circle frame in Cajun Craze.  That’s made by cutting a scallop circle with a Circles Layering Framelit and then cutting the next size smaller straight side circle out of that.  Then I just adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

The Daisy Delight daisy is stamped in Crushed Curry three times on Whisper White and punched with the matching Daisy Punch.  I used my Clear Wink of Stella to pull some color into all the petals and then lightly curled them with a Bone Folder.  I stacked them up with Stampin’ Dimensionals between them and adhered it to the card inside panel with a little smear of Fast Fuse.

The sentiment on the inside is from Daisy Delight, stamped in Cajun Craze – I’ve cut my Thank You image in half so that I can get the stacked words!  I also stamped some Old Olive stems and Crushed Curry flowers.

I decorated my Whisper White Medium Envelope with more flowers from the Daisy Delight stamp set on the front…

…and I added another piece of the white-washed Wood Textures DSP to the envelope flap and stamped it all over with Crushed Curry daisies!

Et Voila!  This isn’t a hard fold to do – just take your time.  Watch the video – and I highly recommend that you make a template to help you keep the folds and cuts straight.  Or…diagonal…as the case may be!  I love this one with the Daisy Delight stamp set and punch – but what other sets can you think of that would work with this kind of fold?  Anywho – hope you like! 🙂

Scroll on down and see what you need to do to win the Blog Candy. I promise you’re going to want to be the winner! 🙂

Finn-Fan Fix  

I think in a past FFF, I mentioned that Finny will grab the tail end of his collar and carry it along as he runs around.  Yes?

Well.  He’s gotten a bit obsessive….nay, compulsive!…about it!

He’ll twist himself into crazy contortions to grab it now.  And – he works so hard trying to get it that he’ll twirl himself into a bush.

Or a golf cart!  He’s a goof-ball, I tell you!

Apparently SOMEbody has to hold the dog to keep him in line!  

Even in the house.

While he’s resting…

I got nuthin’, y’all.  I simply do not know. 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Pop-Up Daisy Video Sneak Peek!

Happy Sunday, y’all!  Hope your weekend is going well!

We spent Saturday….gardening.  I unpacked a little.  Gave Wayne a haircut.  Did some more brushing on the fur-bucket.  Took a little nap or two.     It was a nice day – punctuated with a solid rain/thunderstorm mid-afternoon, so it was even a little cooler when it was time to feed in the evening!

So – I figure you’ve come to expect that my Sunday post will contain a little sneak peek of what I’m going to be working on in my Sunday evening Facebook Live video.  And – today is no exception!

I know you can see a daisy there…so you know we’ll be playing with that cool Daisy Punch!  It’ll be back on the 31st – and this will be a fun card to be all ready to make when you get it in your hot little hands!  It’s a fun-fold card – and…we’re going to hope I can make it again while on camera!  Fingers crossed!  

I’ll give you all the deets and card cuts on Monday and…a chance to win the Daisy Delight bundle!  Whoo-hoo! 🙂

So – hope that you’ll join me on my Stamps-N-Lingers Facebook page, tonight at 7pm Eastern!  Please make note of the new time – we’ve got an Amy’s Inkin’ Krew team meeting at 8!  So I’ll be on with y’all an hour early!!

See you then!

Finn-Fan Fix 

This morning during our gardening session, we picked a peck of peppers.

LOL – CHILE peppers!

And we charred them and peeled them and…decided we needed Chile Relleno Casserole for dinner.

So – me and Sous put it together!

And Sous even thought he might like him a little chile relleno!

I’m pretty sure he’s got some Latin blood, y’all – I know I showed you the picture of him licking the Yoghurt container with the raspberry/habanero chile yoghurt?

What I though would be one lick and then the “look” (what the heck, mom?!) ended up with him licking it clean.

So – when he asks me for chile relleno casserole…

He means it!! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Embossed Eclectic Banners for You

Happy Monday, y’all!  I think this will be my last Monday post from Florida!  And – I won’t lie.  I’m really ready to go home.  Want to see my husband and Finn and the panthers and ponies.  Ready to play in the veggie garden.  🙂

If you were able to join my Facebook Live video last nice – thank you so much.  If not, here’s a link to the video on You Tube – enjoy!

I had a good time playing with the new Embossing Paste and the Naturally Eclectic bundle of goodies.  Along with a little bit of Banners for You.  Take a look-see:

As I said yesterday, I played across the middle on this week’s Stamp Ink Paper Tic-Tac-Toe challenge.

The layout itself was inspired by the sketch challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments.

I used some pretty green paper from the Naturally Eclectic DSP for the card base, and did a little embossing on it with the new Embossing Paste.  My “stencil” was made by cutting the geometric die in the Eclectic Layers Thinlits from a piece of Thick Card Stock.  

I also made a couple of “stencils” by die cutting the flower from Eclectic Layers and embossing them on Thick Whisper White card stock.  I used some Powder Pink Ink Refill to color one batch of Embossing Paste and Lemon Lime Twist ink refill for the other.  I embossed a Powder Pink and Lemon Lime Twist flower on the middle Whisper White panel, then matted it on a piece of Powder Pink card stock.

I used a little Liquid Glue to run a length of Lemon Lime Twist 1/2″ Finely Woven Ribbon across the card front, then popped my art panel over that with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  

I embossed another Eclectic Layers flower with Powder Pink-colored embossing paste on a scrap of Thick Whisper White card stock.  When it was dry, I cut it out with the appropriate die and then adhered it with Liquid Glue.

I ran another piece of ribbon across the whole panel – this time Powder Pink 3/8″ Shimmer Ribbon – with some Fast Fuse and a Stampin’ Dimensional under the left end. My sentiment is from the Banners For You stamp set – I stamped the border image in Lemon Lime Twist and added the sentiment in Emerald Envy.  Then I cut it out with the matching die in the Bunch of Banners Framelits. and popped it over the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside, I stamped a few flowers from Oh So Eclectic in Powder Pink and Lemon-Lime Twist.  For both “fill” images, I stamped them off once on a piece of scrap before stamping the Whisper White panel.

I matted the panel on Powder Pink and added it to my Thick Whisper White card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Oh So Eclectic flowers on the front…

…and then added more of the Naturally Eclectic DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  There are so many things to do with this new Embossing Paste – and I love that we can color it with our ink refills, don’t you?  And I really love the entire Naturally Eclectic Suite.  Hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Daisies are Delightful for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop



Happy Thursday, y’all – and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!  We’ve got a full complement of bloggers for you today, so be sure to check them all out and see how everyone handled our color challenge this week!  

Take a gander at the colors we were given:

I decided to use some of the Petal Garden DSP Stack along with the Daisy Delight stamp set and matching Daisy Punch (it WILL be back, folks!) to make a pretty thank you card.  Take a look-see:

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

I started with a simple Whisper White panel that I matted on Old Olive.  Near the bottom corner, I stamped the sentiment from Daisy Delight in Calypso Coral ink.

For my middle panel, I used six equal-sized strips of Pool Party paper from the Petal Garden DSP Stack, and adhered them to an Old Olive mat with Liquid Glue.  Then I popped the panel onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

My daisy (I think it’s a Gerbera – and I learned the technique from my friend Jaimie – who’s one of our hoppers today!) is three Daisy Delight flowers inked in Calypso Coral and stamped on some Calypso Coral paper in the Petal Gardens DSP Stack.  I punched them out with the Daisy Punch and brushed all the petals with my Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush.  To assemble them, I first curled the petals with a Bone Folder – some down and some up – then I used a Stampin’ Dimensional between each flower to create a stack.  Don’t forget to rotate each flower so that all the gaps are filled in with petals!

I used Glue Dots around the back of my flower to wind some Old Olive Baker’s Twine and Gold Metallic Thread around in several loops, then used another Stampin’ Dimensional to pop the flower onto the card front.

I decided it needed a little more oomph, so I stamped a couple of leaves from Daisy Delight in Old Olive on some Whisper White card stock.  Then I used the fill-in image in stamped-off-once Old Olive and fussy cut the leaves.  I used a little Liquid Glue to stick them into the flower.  Finally, I added a Gold Faceted Gem to the middle of the flower and the card front was done.

On the inside, I stamped the Daisy Delight flower image three times in Calypso Coral ink in the corner of a Whisper White panel – rotating the image each time.  Then I used my Clear Wink to paint the petals in Calypso Coral.  I added a couple of Old Olive leaves – and another Gold Faceted Gem to the middle of the flower.

I Fast Fuse’d the panel to an Old Olive mat and into my Thick Whisper White card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

On the front of my Whisper White Medium Envelope, I added another Calypso Coral Daisy Delight flower and brushed the petals with my Clear Wink of Stella…

…and added some more Petal Garden DSP on the envelope flap!

Et Voila!  I couldn’t help it, y’all!  Had to use the Daisy Delight stamp set and matching Daisy Punch.  And it just goes so perfectly with the Petal Garden DSP.  Hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Floral Statements and Birds Thanks

Hey, y’all!  How’s the week going?  Mine’s going – we’re getting things started at work.  Slowly.  But it’s going! 

I made today’s card using the new Floral Statements stamp set and some watercoloring.  And then I added a couple of birds from the Best Birds stamp set and matching Birds & Blooms Thinlits.  Take a look-see:

Now – my color palette came from the Color Throwdown challenge this week – but I missed the deadline to enter.  Which doesn’t change the fact that it drove my color choices! Continue reading

Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Bouquet Anniversary Sneak Peek

Good mornin’!  Hope your weekend is going well!  I’ve been pretty darned lazy so far – so this day I need to hit it a little.  But it was really nice to sort of laze around yesterday – watched some movies.  Took a couple of naps.  Did a little grocery shopping!  🙂

As is becoming my habit – I’m going to tease you a little with this post!  Tonight, I’ll be playing with the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set and matching Bouquet Bunch Framelits!  I’ll go live on my Stamps-N-Lingers Facebook page at 8pm Eastern, so I hope you’ll join me.  Here’s a peek at what I’ll be making!

Hmmm – is that a brick wall behind the flowers?  Made with…Embossing Paste?!? Continue reading

Stampin’ Up! Delightful Daisy Delight in the Round!

Happy weekend, y’all!  Hope yours is going well so far. 🙂  I thought I had to work today, but…my guys worked extra long last night and at 6:30 we realized we’d get the whole, entire, beautiful two weekend days off!!  Whoo-hoo-hoo-hoo-HOO!!! 🙂  I’m ready – and I know they sure are, too!

My card today is so quick and easy to put together – thanks to some beautiful Wood Textures DSP and Delightful Daisy DSP, a couple of stamped images from the matching Daisy Delight stamp set and some Circle Dies.  Take a look-see:

 

This unusual layout was inspired by the sketch challenge at Freshly Made Sketches this week.

And many of the elements were inspired by the inspiration photo from the Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge.

I had an Old Olive card base from a previous effort (that I ended up not using!) and it already had the front of the card base embossed in the new Pinewood Planks Dynamic TIEF.  It seemed sort of perfect for this one, so I just pulled it back out to use!  Sometimes it’s good to be a pack-rat!! 🙂

I started with a piece of Wood Textures DSP and ran it thru the Big Shot in the Pinewood Planks Dynamic TIEF, then I matted it on some Daffodil Delight card stock.  

After that, it was just a matter of cutting the Daffodil Delight scalloped circle mats and picking and cutting my favorite papers from the Delightful Daisy DSP.  I used the Circles Layering Framelits – making this a quick task.

Well…all but picking my favorite papers from the Delightful Daisy DSP pack.  That took a minute – too many to choose from! 🙂

I adhered everything together and then to the card front with Liquid Glue.

For my sentiment, I stamped the pretty one from Daisy Delight in Old Olive onto a Whisper White strip, snipped a banner end and then edged the whole thing with my Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Write Marker.

I cut a piece of 5/8″ Burlap Ribbon, cut the ends to a banner and attached it to my sentiment with a handheld stapler.  It’s popped on the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

To finish off, I tied a small bow with Linen Thread and attached it with a little dab of Liquid Glue, then added some Old Olive Glitter Enamel Dots, and the card front was done!

On the inside, I used the pretty little flower stamp from the Daisy Delight stamp set and stamped it a couple of times on a piece of Whisper White.  They each got a quick stem with my Old Olive Stampin’ Write Marker.  Then I cut it with another Circle Layering Framelits die and matted it on a scalloped Daffodil Delight mat.

I matted the panel on 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 of the Daisy Delight flowers on the front…

…and then I added a little more of the Delightful Daisy DSP to the envelope flap.

 

Et Voila!  Even without the Daisy Punch, this Delightful Daisy Suite is wonderful and gorgeous!  And it combines so nicely with the Wood Textures DSP to make a quick and easy card.  Hope you like! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Floral Statements and a Graceful Garden Thanks

Good mornin’, y’all!  It’s Friday!  I’d say…whooo-hoo!…but, I have to work tomorrow, so…kinda pointless!  I hope that you do not and that you’ve got something fun planned!

So, I saw a beautiful card over on Billie Moan’s Rambling Rose Studio blogsite (you can see that one right here) and I thought it was so beautiful that I wanted to give it a shot.  

Well.  I did.  Give it a shot.  Let’s just say I’m not even on the target with Billie’s beautiful card.  But I did some Watercolor Pencil coloring with the new Floral Statements and Graceful Gardens and it turned out okay.  Take a look-see:

My layout was loosely inspired by the sketch at TGIF Challenges.

I made a mat for my card by stamping the new Burlap Background image in Crumb Cake ink on a panel of Crumb Cake card stock.  Then I tore the edges and sponged them with more Crumb Cake.

The art is from the Floral Statements stamp set – this is another one that I wanted the second I saw it!  I stamped it in Crumb Cake ink on another piece of Crumb Cake card stock.  Then I used my Crumb Cake Stampin’ Write Marker to darken and emphasize the letters.

I colored the flowers with my Watercolor Pencils.  First, I colored them all in with the White pencil.  Then I added Calypso Coral or Melon Mambo, adding shading as I went along.  The leaves are done with the Old Olive Watercolor Pencil only – no first layer in white.  I touched up the flower outlines with my Soft Suede Marker.

Using my ruler and fine-tip end of the Soft Suede Marker, I added the “frame” around the flowers and sponged the edges with Crumb Cake.  Then I added a length of Old Olive 1/8″ Sheer Ribbon around the panel, securing it in the back with scotch tape.

I SNAILd the panel to the Burlap-stamped mat and adhered an Old Olive 1/8″ Sheer Ribbon bow to it with a Glue Dot and the card front was done!

On the inside, I made another Crumb Cake mat by stamping it with the Burlap image in Crumb Cake, tearing the edges and then sponging them with more Crumb Cake.  I stamped a few images from the Graceful Garden stamp set onto a second Crumb Cake panel, coloring them in the same manner as the flowers on the front.  I also added a Soft Suede “frame”.

My card base is Soft Suede – and I embossed the front of it in the Pinewood Planks Dynamic TIEF, just to add a little more texture to my card!  Then I SNAILd my mat and inner liner on the inside, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals, and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got another flower from the Graceful Garden stamp set, in Crumb Cake, on the front…

…and some Graceful Gardens leaves on the envelope flap.  I left all these images in Crumb Cake so the flowers on the inside would pop even more!

Et Voila!  I was right!  This Floral Statements stamp set is flat out gorgeous!  One stamp – huge impact!  And the Graceful Gardens set complements it beautifully!!  Hope you like!

Finn-Fan Fix…Wayne sent me a picture!

But it’s kinda sad. 😦

Appears Finn has a hot spot.  Wayne thinks it’s ringworm, but…I’m pretty sure it’s a hot spot.

Regardless – Wayne’s putting medicine on it.

And Finn wants it off.

But it has to stay on.

Thus…

Poor puppy!

Seriously.  He’s got “poor pitiful me” down to an art form!!  🙂

Stampin’ Up! Pieces & Patterns for the Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop!

Mornin’, y’all!  Welcome to another edition of the Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop!  This month, our theme is “Use Something from the New Catalog”.  Easy Peasy!!  I’m looking forward to seeing what all our talented ladies come up with – and hope you’ll spend some time exploring the hop when you’re done here!

Today’s card is kind of fun.  Why?  Cuz I’ve used some of our new Embossing Paste and Pattern Party Decorative Masks!  I added a sentiment from the Pieces & Patterns stamp set – and another couple three flowers from the Beautiful Bouquet bundle.  Take a look-see:

My layout is from this week’s challenge over at CAS(E) This Sketch.

And my colors and several design elements were inspired by this photo from The Card Concept.

I made this as a notecard sized card – partly because my original design plan was going to go better with that size.  But when I changed horses in the middle of the stream – I just stuck with it.

I started with a Very Vanilla panel and, using a Pattern Party Decorative Mask, added some Embossing Paste texture to part of the panel.  I’ll do another card with the Embossing Paste – maybe for my video next Sunday – but you should know it’s really easy to work with.  It also dries pretty quickly!

Once it had dried, I matted the panel on a piece of Soft Suede (a nod to the wall paint in the inspiration photo!).  Then I wrapped a piece of new Whisper White 1/8″ Sheer Ribbon around the card front, securing it in the back with scotch tape.

For my sentiment, I inked up the sentiment from the Pieces & Patterns stamp set with Versamark and heat embossed it in Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder on a piece of Very Vanilla card stock.  Then I cut it out with a Stitched Shapes Framelits square die.  I matted it on two scalloped squares that I cut with a die from the Squares Layering Framelits.  One is in Very Vanilla and the other in Berry Burst.  I used Liquid Glue to mat the sentiment onto the Very Vanilla square.

I used a little more Liquid Glue to adhere the Berry Burst square to the card front, then popped the Very Vanilla Square and sentiment on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

To make the flowers I pulled out the pretty flower from Beautiful Bouquet and stamped it three times in Berry Burst on Very Vanilla.  Then I cut them all out with the matching die from the Bouquet Bunch Framelits.  They’re adhered with Liquid Glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals to the sentiment square.

I finished the front off with a few Silver Sequins that I pulled off a strand of new Mini Sequin Trim, adhering them with tiny eensy dabs of Liquid Glue!

My inside Very Vanilla panel got some graphics – to tie in with the chairs in the photo.  Using the large die from the Eclectic Layers Thinlits, I cut out a Basic Black shape.  I used the shape as a template and then adhered the cut-out pieces in the negative spaces with Liquid Glue.  When I picked up the template, here’s what was left!

I adhered the panel to a Soft Suede mat and into my Basic Black note card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Note Card Envelope (yep – we now have Very Vanilla Note Cards and Envelopes!!) got another Beautiful Bouquet flower in Berry Burst on the front…

…and then I added some Berry Burst paper in a graphic-y design from the Fresh Florals DSP Stack to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Loving the new Embossing Paste!!  What a fun way to add texture – and you can even color it with some drops of re-inker!  May try that soon, too.  Hope you like!

Scroll on down for the card cuts and all the products you’ll need to make this one for yourself!

Now that you’ve seen my card, I hope you’ll take a little time to jump thru all the other projects we have to share. Click any name below, or you can use the Previous Blog button to jump to Linda’s page or the Next Blog button to see what Amy’s been up to!
