Stampin’ Up! 2018 Occasions Catalog Sneak Peek – Flying Home!

Good morning, y’all!  Hope you’re ready for a weekend!  I know I am – and I’m ready for this one in particular!  Should be headed to the airport tomorrow to fly home on Sunday!  Whoo-hoo!  

I wanted to share a fun little card I made with the new 2018 Occasions stamp set that I won in a Prize Patrol last week at OnStage!  I was so excited – because I loved this set from the second they showed it on stage!

So I decided to just go ahead and make a card with it – and those absolutely adorable little birds and butterflies sort of said “inchie” to me.  I added a quick sentiment from All Things Thanks and some Night of Navy Gingham ribbon.  Take a look-see:

I started with a simple piece of Whisper White card stock, matted on Basic Black.

I stamped 9 little Flying Home images in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on 9 little 7/8″ squares of Whisper White.  Each one of those squares is matted with Liquid Glue on a scalloped edge square – 1″ (hence the name!) – cut from the Layering Squares Framelits.  I let the squares be just the tiniest bit “wonky” on their mats – I kind of liked the whimsical feel of them!

I used my Light Night of Navy and Light Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends to color each image and added some accents with my Night of Navy and Basic Black Stampin’ Write Markers.  Then I popped them all onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals – creating a grid – but not a too “severe” one.  If you’ll notice, they’re not all perfectly perfect.   

On the bottom of the card front, I stamped the sentiment from All Things Thanks using my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig.  I colored just the one word with my Night of Navy Marker – cuz that’s all I wanted!

There’s another little Flying Home butterfly next to the sentiment – stamped and colored identically to the others.

I wrapped a piece of Night of Navy 1/2″ Gingham Ribbon around the panel, securing it in the back with scotch tape, then used a second piece to tie a “faux bow” – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped the butterfly several times on a Whisper White panel, added flutterby tracks with my Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker and colored them with my Blends.

I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Basic Black mat and into 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 Flying Home butterflies and flutterby trails on the front…

…and on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Seriously?!?  How cute are those little guys?!?  They’re just the icing on the cake in this gorgeous Flying Home stamp set!  I hope you like – and I know you’re writing this one down for when this super catalog goes live in January!! 😉

Did you Miss the Stamparatus Reservation Yesterday?

The Next Window Opens on 5 Dec

You’ve been hearing about the new stamp-placement tool from Stampin’ Up! called the Stamparatus!!  And I know for certain sure that you want (no….need one!).  And you can reserve your very own for delivery in February!!  

If you missed out on this round, don’t worry, there’ll be another reservation period starting on 5 December!

A few of you have asked questions about adding a host code to the reservation.  Since the order will not be generated and you will not be charged for the Stamparatus until they’re ready to ship, you won’t be able to add the host code until then.  This is how the ordering process will work:

  • After you get your tool reserved, you will get an email from Stampin’ Up! confirming your reservation.
  • You will get an email from Stampin’ Up! in early February letting you know that an item has been added to your shopping basket.
  • At that point, you can log into your Stampin’ Up! account in my online store and you will find the Stamparatus in your shopping bag.
  • You can add other items to your order at that time if you’d like and add a host code to it before submitting the order.  So the checkout process will work just like it always does.  You can add a host code and your payment information at the time of checkout.

Here is a quick tutorial for the reservation process:

In case you’re still wondering what the fuss is all about…check out this video (be sure to watch all the way and see The Hinge Step!!)!

Why do you need one? Well…

  • Make multiples with ease
  • Consistently stamp crisp, clean images
  • If you want a darker impression, apply more ink and restamp—no need to start over
  • Make fewer mistakes, saving time and money
  • Easily create 2-step, 3-step, and 4-step stamped images using reversible plates
  • Develop new and specialized stamping techniques with adjustable stamping plates and precision placement

Here’s the product details!

  • Compatible with Stampin’ Up!’s red rubber and photopolymer stamp
  • Foam mat to use with photopolymer stamps
  • Rulers and gridlines for quick measuring
  • 2 open sides so you can stamp on larger paper
  • 2 reversible plates: a total of 4 surfaces to work with
  • 2 magnets to hold the paper in place
  • Magnet storage areas

Retail Price–$49.00 USD

Okay. I’ve gotta have one. How do I get in line?

With the launch of this tool, we’re trying something different: testing a new reservation system.  It acts like a true preorder: you reserve your spot and we guarantee shipment as soon as the product arrives in our warehouse. Customers will place reservations and receive their product at the same time. This system will allow us to get the product to market as soon as possible while avoiding backorders and efficiently managing inventory.

The global launch will feature three reservation windows. For each window, please note the following:

  • Reservation quantities are while supplies last.
  • 1 tool per customer per reservation window. 
  • You can participate in multiple reservation windows.
  • In order to reserve your Stamparatus, you must provide your credit card information.
  • Credit cards will not be charged until the Stamparatus ships from our facility. When you close your order, be sure to verify that your credit card and shipping information is correct.

Stampin’ Up! Color Me Happy Pretty Pines

Good….Friday, y’all!  Hope you’ve had a great week and are ready for a weekend!

OnStage has been great so far…and wait until you get a gander at the new 2018 Occasions Catalog!  I’m so excited for you to get to see it!  Soon! 🙂

For today, I have a fun little pine-y Thank You card to share – it uses the large sentiment from the new Color Me Happy stamp set, a little Christmas Happiness and Pretty Pines die cuts and some Christmas Around the World DSP.  Take a look-see:

I played along with The Paper Players theme challenge this week:

I started with a Basic Black card base.  Then I cut two pieces of the plaid Christmas Around the World DSP to the exact size as the card – each is 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″.  I used Liquid Glue to adhere one sheet on the front of the card and the second sheet on the inside.  You’ll see how that ended up in a little bit.

Next up, I cut a smaller panel of Very Vanilla card stock and, using the splatter image in Touches of Texture, stamped it in Soft Suede a  couple of times – not re-inking between the stamps.

With my Christmas Happiness stamp set, I stamped a couple of pine boughs in Garden Green over the top of my splatters.  I added the medium size pine cone – the outline shape is in Early Espresso and the fill is Soft Suede.  Then I matted the panel on a piece of Garden Green card stock.

For my sentiment, I used the large Thank You in the new Color Me Happy stamp set, stamping it in Early Espresso on a piece of Wood Textures DSP.  Then I fussy cut just the “Thanks”.

I adhered the cut sentiment to the stamped panel with Liquid Glue.  Then, using my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig, I stamped just the work “you” under the sentiment in Early Espresso.

With the shortest pine bough die in the Pretty Pines Thinlits, I cut a couple of Garden Green pine boughs and adhered them with some Liquid Glue under the sentiment.   Then I cut a length of Jute Twine and unwound it – so I had three thinner strands.  With one of those strands, I tied a little bow and adhered it with a Glue Dot.

I added three Black Rhinestone Jewels to the panel and popped it over the plaid card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside, I cut another of the short pine boughs from Pretty Pines out of the corner of a Very Vanilla panel.

I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Garden Green mat and into the card base – you can see where I’d already adhered the Christmas Around the World DSP!  And that was it for the card base!

My Very Vanilla Medium envelope got some more Garden Green, Early Espresso and Soft Suede Christmas Happiness pine boughs and cone on the front…

…and some more Christmas Around the World Mary’s-Favorite-Plaid-Paper on the envelope flap!

Et Voila!  So – wood.  Pine boughs.  Pine Cones.  PLAID!  Hello??  Gotta love the Christmas Happiness stamp set and the Pretty Pines Thinlits, right?  And look how the Color Me Happy sentiment just slides right in there!!  Hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Sunday Video Sneak Peek

Mornin’, y’all!  Hope you remembered to set your clocks back last night when you went to bed!  I personally wish we’d just stick with daylight savings time all year long.  I hate this jumping around, don’t you?

So – you might be wondering about the relatively cryptic nature of the title of my post today?  Usually I stick a stamp name or die set or something like that in there, I know.

But…I had a card in my head when I got back from work last night.  And I spent too long trying desperately to make it work.  And it just wouldn’t.  But I refused to give up the concept, so I pulled out the Card Front Builder Thinlits.  And some Christmas Around the World plaid.

And then the creative process simply…stalled.  I had a concept, but…nothing concrete.  So…I decided to sleep on it and took a picture of what I had.  Take a look-see:

Looks promising, maybe – we’ll see what transpires when I look at it in the light of day! 🙂

I sure hope you’ll join me tonight, at 8pm Eastern, on my Stamps-N-Lingers Facebook page.  And we’ll all see what I’ve come up with by then! 🙂

Have a super Sunday – enjoy that extra hour!

TTFN

Stampin’ Up! Color Me Merry Thank You

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

In my ongoing quest to show you guys how versatile the new Color Me Happy stamp set is – above and beyond even what you can do with it when you combine it with the Color Me Happy Project kit – I’ve made a quick and easy (and I ain’t just whistlin’ Dixie here, folks!!) thank you card with the stamp set and a little bit of the Merry Little Christmas DSP.  Take a look-see:

Since I’m betting your brain instantly told you how to make this card, you know how easy it is, right?

I did play along with the Tic-Tac-Toe challenge this week.  I went right down the middle!

Buckle up, buttercup – this is going to go fast!

I started with the cool black-and-white side of the Merry Little Christmas DSP and matted it on a panel of Pool Party card stock for the card front.  Then I wrapped a length of Peekaboo Peach 5/8″ Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon around the panel, securing it in the back with scotch tape.

I stamped the large and lovely sentiment from the Color Me Happy stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a piece of Whisper White card stock and cut it out with an oval die from the Stitched Shapes Framelits.  When the ink was good and dry, I used my Pumpkin Pie Light and Dark Stampin’ Blends to color the sentiment.  I used the Dark Pool Party Blend to color the little flourishes.

I cut a scalloped oval with the Ovals Layering Framelits die and matted the sentiment to it with Fast Fuse.  Then I popped it over the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I used a short little length of Metallic Thread (you can use whatever kind – you’re not going to see it!), and tied a knot around the Crinkled Seam Binding to the left of the sentiment.  That helped to make my faux-bow look a lot less faux!

I tied a bow with more of the Peekaboo Peach 5/8″ Crinkled Seam Binding and adhered it with a Glue Dot – right over the spot where I tied the Metallic Thread knot.  Then I added some Black Rhinestone Jewels to the sentiment and the card was done!

For the inside, I used the Leaf Punch to cut out a leaf (to coordinate with the front DSP) in the corner of a Whisper White panel.

I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Pool Party mat and into my Basic Black card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done! 🙂

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got a piece of Black and White Pick a Pattern Washi Tape across the front – I colored the little dots with my Dark Pool Party Stampin’ Blend (just hard to see in the picture!)…

..and I gave the envelope a little more of the leafy Merry Little Christmas DSP.

Et Voila!  So many ways to use the Color Me Happy stamp set – dress it up or dress it down!  And – even though “Christmas” is in the name of the Merry Little Christas DSP – its got so much versatility with the color scheme (it’s Old Olive-and-white on the other side!) and the patterns that are kind of season-neutral.  Hope you like!

TTFN

And – you use the Color Me Happy stamp set to make all the images and color them with your new Stampin’ Blends!  This kit coordinates with the Pool Party, Pumpkin Pie, Rich Razzleberry and Pink Pirouette Stampin’ Blends.  One thing you should make note of….both the Color Me Happy Stamp Set and the Color Me Happy Project Kit are only available while supplies last!  More specifically – the stamp set is only available as long as the Project Kit supplies last.  So…tarry not!

Here’s a great flyer if you haven’t seen it – with all sorts of good information!

Stampin’ Up! Painted Color Me Happy Thanks

Hey, y’all!  Happy Saturday!  Hope you’ve got a fun weekend planned.  Or a restful one.  Not sure you can really do both…but if you can – more power to you!  I think I’ve got a couple hours at work then it’s laundry day!  And cards cards CARDS!

Guess what’s almost here, y’all??

Well – yes…OnStage.  But I was really thinking of….the release of the new Stampin’ Blends!!

I’m so excited for you to get them in your hot little hands – I do believe you’re going to be tickled with them!  They’re going to be available to you on the 1st – which is next Wednesday!  When they come out, there will also be a new (limited supply!!) stamp released – called Color Me Happy!

It’s chock full of wonderful, color-able, line art images for you to use with the coordinating Color Me Happy Project kit (which will ONLY be available while supplies last!!)…

…or all by itself!  Which is what I did today.  I added a little Painted Autumn DSP and a couple of sentiments from All Things Thanks and made…take a look-see:

For the layout, I borrowed the sketch from this week’s Freshly Made Sketches.

So, y’all know this kind of card – where I have to build on the card front itself – strikes fear in my heart, right!?  So this one is a huge act of bravery!

I first stamped a rectangle of Whisper White card stock with the pretty flower image in the Color Me Happy set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  Then, using my Light and Dark Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends, I colored the flowers.  When I was done with the Pumpkin Pie flowers, I went back over them with the Dark Daffodil Delight Blends Pen to brighten it up and give it a little peachy hue.  Then I matted the panel on a piece of Early Espresso.

The middle panel is from the Painted Autumn DSP, matted on Early Espresso.  Then I wrapped a piece of Peekaboo Peach 5/8″ Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon around it, securing it in the back with scotch tape.  I made a faux bow by tying a short piece of the ribbon around it and pulling it snug.

For the sentiment, I pulled out my All Things Thanks stamp set and stamped it in Early Espresso on a square of Whisper White.  And matted that on Early Espresso, too.

To build the card front, I Fast Fuse’d the Color Me Happy panel directly onto the front of my Thick Whisper White card base. Then I popped the Painted Autumn panel on with Stampin’ Dimensionals – and did the same with the sentiment square.

I decided it needed just a little something more, so I stamped and colored another flower from Color Me Happy, fussy cut it and adhered it with Liquid Glue and a Mini Stampin’ Dimensional.  I added a tiny Rhinestone Basic Jewel to the middle and that was it for the card front!

On the inside, I used my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to add a second All Things Thanks sentiment in Early Espresso on a Whisper White panel.  Over the top, I stamped a Tuxedo Black Memento Ink Color Me Happy Flower and colored it with my Dark and Light Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends.  I even added another Rhinestone Basic Jewel!

I Fast Fuse’d the panel to an Early Espresso Mat and into my Thick Whisper White card base and the card was done!

On the front of my Whisper White Medium Envelope, I stamped two more Color Me Happy flowers in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  Here’s a tip:  the plastic sheet from the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig fits inside our Medium envelopes perfectly!  Slide that in before you color the flowers with the Stampin’ Blends – it’ll protect the back of your envelope from the inevitable bleed-thru!  I used more Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie…

…and then I added a little more of the Painted Autumn DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I have the Color Me Happy Project Kit – and will be showing you the completed cards on the 1st.  But – the Color Me Happy stamp set is completely stand-alone as a wonderful set filled with beautiful images and fun sentiments.  I hope you like – and are planning to snap them up quick like a bunny come next Wednesday! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Painted Harvest Pumpkin Cat!

Happy Friday, y’all – when you read this, I’ll probably be on my way back to Utah.

Or not.  My jet lag has jet lag – I have no idea what time it’ll be anywhere I’m at today, so…you know what I mean!  When next you hear from me, it’ll be from Utah!

My card today uses an all-time favorite, the Painted Harvest stamp set, and I played with the Eclipse technique.  A couple of die cuts from the Patterned Pumpkin set and a few Cat Punches lent a hand.  Take a look-see:

I started with a piece of Very Vanilla card stock and, using the two-step flower image from Painted Harvest, stamped several flowers all across the panel.  I used three colors for the petals – Crushed Curry, Peekaboo Peach and Pumpkin Pie.  There wasn’t a lot of rhyme or reason behind the color combinations – I just played with the colors.  

It’s not like there are any rules – just mix these three colors – two per flower.  Stamp each image a couple three times – rotating the image a little for each stamp. And you’ll be a flower-making rock star!!  Promise!

For the middles, I used Early Espresso – and stamped the large middle twice per flower, rotating with each stamp.  And then I added some little dots – also in Early Espresso – to each flower.

I used the Cat Punch and cut him from the bottom of the panel – and added some eyes in Early Espresso from the Spooky Cat stamp set.  Then I cut four more of him from Early Espresso and stacked them all together with Liquid Glue.

Next, I ran the panel thru the Big Shot with the large pumpkin die from the Patterned Pumpkins Thinlits laid on the panel – and slightly overlapping the cut-out cat.  I made sure to keep track of the cut out-middle pieces.

 

Then I cut three more of the pumpkins from Early Espresso – and stacked them all up with Liquid Glue.

I Fast Fuse’d the panel to an Early Espresso and Peekaboo Peach mat and used more Liquid Glue to adhere the stacked pumpkin back into its negative space.  Then I added the single-layer of the cut-out pieces back where they went in the die cut.  To finish it off, I added the stacked cat back in as well.  He sits a little higher than the pumpkin (due to having 4 additional layers versus the three under the pumpkin), giving the impression he’s sitting in front of the pumpkin! 🙂

 

I enlisted the help of the Gourd Goodness stamp set for the sentiment, stamping it on a strip of Peekaboo Peach card stock in Soft Suede.  I snipped banners in both ends, edged it with my Soft Suede Stampin’ Write Marker, and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

Finally, I tied a bow with two strands each of Crushed Curry and Basic Black Solid Baker’s Twines and adhered it over a Billie Moan Bow made with Linen Thread, using a Glue Dot.  I added it to the card front and it was done!

On the inside, I made three more Painted Harvest flowers across the bottom of a Very Vanilla panel – again from Crushed Curry, Peekaboo Peach and Pumpkin Pie.  I added the centers with the Early Espresso.

I Fast Fuse’d the panel to an Early Espresso and Peekaboo Peach mat and into my Crushed Curry card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got another Painted Harvest flower on the front…

…and a few more on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I love it!  Painted Harvest never fails to impress!!  And I love how it looks like the cat – when you can even see him!! – is sitting in a pumpkin patch, surrounded by beautiful flowers.  Hope you like!!

Stampin’ Up! Pick a Painted Patterned Pumpkin

Mornin’, y’all!  The calendar tells me its Friday, so…happy Friday! We’re drawing to the end of week 2 here in Utah (well, after tomorrow, that is!).  Only 5 more weeks and then home to the hubby and the ponies and kitties and Finn!! 🙂  In between – we’ve got OnStage!  I’m so looking forward to seeing everyone….and getting a sneak peek of what’s coming down the pike from Stampin’ Up!

Okay – today’s card.  Now, when I started to make it, I didn’t really plan on it becoming yet another collage card.

I figure y’all are about sick to death of collage cards – with flowers and/or pumpkins and/or leaves – from me.

I mean, seriously.  What a bore – same kind of card almost every day!

But.  It’s for sure in my wheelhouse – and I like them.

So – you have to cope with yet another collage card.  With pumpkins.  And leaves.  I do think it looks quite a bit different from previous ones, though, so let’s pretend I’m just showing you how to make different looks with the same tools!

For this one, I used my current Fall go-to Patterned Pumpkins Thinlits with an assist from Painted Harvest.  Take a look-see:

I played along with two challenges with this one.  The first, which inspired my layout, is from the Global Design Project, which is a CASE the Designer challenge.

And the second was a photo challenge from The Card Concept.  I used what I’d describe as a layered collage with a rustic flavor style! 🙂 

I started with a piece of the Wooden Textures DSP and Fast Fuse’d it to a Pool Party mat.  For my sentiment, I used a darker piece of the same paper, and heat embossed – in White – the sentiment from the Painted Harvest stamp set.  Then I Fast Fuse’d it to a Pool Party mat. 

I took a silver Foil Snowflake and trimmed it down a bit, then used Liquid Glue to adhere it to the card front.  Over that, I adhered my sentiment panel with Liquid Glue.

To make my collage, I cut a large and a star-filled pumpkin, using the Patterned Pumpkins Thinlits, from the same light-wood paper I’d used on the card front. I also cut a couple of the leaves in the same paper (same die set), as well as punching out a few leaves with the new Leaf Punch.

I colored the two Leaf Punch shapes with the Pool Party Stampin’ Blends (coming soon!).  I also stamped a couple of pumpkins from the Pick a Pumpkin stamp set in Pool Party on Whisper White and cut them out with their matching dies from Patterned Pumpkin.

I made the star-filled pumpkin be more solid by adhering it to a scrap of Pool Party card stock and trimming the excess with my Paper Snips.

I used Liquid Glue to start layering up my collage elements.  Before I added the star pumpkin, I stuck a couple of silver Year of Cheer Embellishments on with Glue Dots.  Take a look – you can also see a few “spears” of silver Foil Snowflake nestled in there, too.  Then I popped the star pumpkin on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and added the last little pumpkin with Liquid Glue.

I tied a bow from two lengths of Linen Thread and one of Whisper White Solid Baker’s Twine and added it with a Glue Dot to finish off the card front!  

On the inside, I stamped a second sentiment from Painted Harvest in Early Espresso on more of the Wood Textures DSP.  Over that I added another couple of Pool Party pumpkins from Pick a Pumpkin.

I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Pool Party mat and into my Crumb Cake card base, Fast Fuse’d the front on, and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another couple of Pick a Pumpkin pumpkins on the front…

…and a little more of the light Wood Textures DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This looks so similar – and yet so different! – from the cards I’ve been doing these last couple of days!  I hope you’re “getting” how handy and lovely the Pick a Pumpkin/Patterned Pumpkin Thinlits bundle really is – and either have it already or are busily placing an order for it!  Hope you like!

I promise to stop this collage-kick I’m on.

Well.

Probably!

Stampin’ Up! Gourd Goodness and Pumpkin Leaves for the Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop!

Good mornin’, y’all – welcome to another edition of Amy’s Inkin’ Krew team blog hop!  Each month we make projects centered around a theme – and this month is Giving Thanks!  We can interpret that any way we want – so…be sure to check and see everyone’s projects – we’ve got a bunch of talented ladies hopping with us this month!  

I decided to go straight up Fall festival with my card, using the Gourd Goodness stamp set and…a few goodies from my October Paper Pumpkin!  Take a look-see:

I started with a piece of Painted Autumn DSP, that I Fast Fuse’d to a Cajun Craze mat for the card front.  I wrapped a long length of Linen Thread around the card front three times, securing it in the back with scotch tape.  Then I used a Glue Dot to pull the three strands together – right about under the bow on the card.

Next, I raided the leftover pieces of my October Paper Pumpkin kit and adhered two pretty Gold leaves to the card front.  Don’t have this kit?  You can cut some leaves from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits from Gold Foil and adhere them with some Liquid Glue. 🙂

Using the two-step pumpkin image in the Gourd Goodness stamp set – I stamped the first image in Peekaboo Peach on Very Vanilla.  Over the top, I stamped the second image in Pumpkin Pie.  The stems – also two-step – are stamped in Garden Green ink.  Then I fussy cut them.

I also cut a Cajun Craze pumpkin from the Patterned Pumpkins Thinlits – and adhered it to another piece of Painted Autumn DSP with Liquid Glue.  Then I fussy cut that, too.

I built up my collage with the Patterned Pumpkin pumpkin adhered with Liquid Glue, popped the Gourd Goodness pumpkins on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and then nestled a couple more leaves from the Paper Pumpkin kit in with Liquid Glue.  The final touch is a little Corrugated Elements heart!

My sentiment, from Gourd Goodness, is stamped in Cajun Craze on Very Vanilla and then punched with the Pretty Label Punch.  I used my Peekaboo Peach Stampin’ Write Marker to add faux stitches and then adhered it with Liquid Glue and a Stampin’ Dimensional.

I made a Linen Thread multi-loop bow and adhered it with a Glue Dot.  Over the center, I stuck a small Gold Faceted Gem and the card front was done!

On the inside, I simply added another of the Paper Pumpkin gold leaves to a Very Vanilla panel.  I would love to be able to buy sheets of these beautiful leaves (hello, Stampin’ Up!?).

I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Cajun Craze mat and into my Peekaboo Peach card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got another gold leaf on the front…

…and another bit of Painted Autumn DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Fall-on-a card….the perfect ode to plenty and thankfulness!  All from the Gourd Goodness stamp set, a Patterned Pumpkin die cut and a little bit of Paper Pumpkin parts!  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 Julie’s page or the Next Blog button to see what Sue’s been doing!

Stampin’ Up! Touches of Texture Patterned Pumpkins

Well – it’s Friday.  But it’s really like Thursday since I have to work tomorrow.  But – we get Sunday and Monday off!  Whoo-Hoo!!  Thank you Chris Columbus! 🙂

Today’s card is a collage card – which I love to do.  But – it’s still got a lot of open space, so…it’s kind of a clean-and-collage-y card!  And it uses the so-pretty Patterned Pumpkin Thinlits with some help from the Touches of Texture stamp set.  Take a look-see:

As you might have noticed, my “photo booth” has changed up a bit.  We’ll see how this works!

I played along with four challenges on this one – the first, from Hand Stamped Sentiments, inspired the layout.

The Paper Players lent the Fall floral theme…

And…the color scheme from the Fab Friday challenge worked perfectly for the theme!

Finally – the Global Design Project was looking for Grateful-themed cards…

I started with a piece of Very Vanilla card stock.  Using the large splatter image in the Touches of Texture stamp set, I stamped it twice in Fresh Fig ink.  I didn’t re-ink between the stamps, either.  Then I matted the panel on Tranquil Tide and Cajun Craze card stock panels with Fast Fuse.

I added a couple of small flowers from Touches of Texture in Cajun Craze, just to add a little more “collage” to the card.  

Next up, I punched a set of leaves in Fresh Fig and Tranquil Tide with the new Leaf Punch, and cut a larger set of leaves in Tranquil Tide with the die in the Eclectic Layers Thinlits.  I creased all the leaves a little with my Bone Folder and adhered them with Liquid Glue to the card front.

To make the pumpkin, I cut the large open pumpkin from the Patterned Pumpkin Thinlits a few times – twice in Cajun Craze and once in Copper Foil.  I adhered one of the Cajun Craze Pumpkins to a piece of Cajun Craze card stock and fussy cut the excess (to give me something to glue to).  Then I took the Copper Foil cut-out pieces and laid them in the Seaside TIEF and embossed them.  And then I used Liquid Glue to adhere them inside the pumpkin shape.  I did one more run thru of the Patterned Pumpkins die – just enough to yield a Tranquil Tide stem!

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

The sentiment, from All Things Thanks, is stamped in Fresh Fig on a Very Vanilla strip.  I cut banner ends with my Paper Snips, edged the banner with my Cajun Craze Stampin’ Write Marker and popped it on with Liquid Glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The final pieces are some Cajun Craze Enamel Shapes and a bow tied with a length of Jute Twine and one of 1/4″ Copper Trim. The Jute Twine piece is the result of separating the three strands that are twisted together to make the Twine.  I adhered the bow with a Glue Dot.

On the inside, I stamped the splatter image from Touches of Texture again in Fresh Fig on a Very Vanilla panel.  Then I adhered the Copper Foil Patterned Pumpkin over that, with the Cajun Craze cut out pieces in the middle.  I ran the die back thru to cut a Tranquil Tide stem and added it as well!

I Fast Fused the panel to a Tranquil Tide and Cajun Craze 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 Touches of Textures Fresh Fig splatter and a Cajun Craze pumpkin from the Patterned Pumpkins on the front…

…and a few more Fresh Fig splatters and Cajun Craze flowers from Touches of Texture on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Some Fall-colored florals from the Patterned Pumpkins Thinlits, the new Leaf Punch and the Eclectic Layers.  Throw in some Touches of Texture and you’re all set.  Hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Painted Harvest Count My Blessings

Mornin’, y’all!  Hope you enjoyed the long weekend!  We had a great day – smoked some ribs that turned out so good they should be illegal!  Spent the afternoon with Scout and her family and a few additional folks.  I sort of blew the diet – but…man, oh man, it was worth it!

I have a pretty, clean and simple card to share with you today, made with the Painted Harvest stamp set and the (also new) Count My Blessings stamp set.  Take a look-see:

Painted Harvets Count My Blessings - Stamps-N-Lingers 4

I let two challenges give me inspiration for this one.  The first, CAS(E) This Sketch, helped with the layout.
Screen Shot 2017-09-04 at 19.40.01

And then the Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge helped with several elements…I went across the diagonal from top left to bottom right!

Screen Shot 2017-09-04 at 19.40.16

I started with a plain piece of Whisper White card stock and, using the pretty flower image in the Count My Blessings stamp set, inked it in Versamark and stamped it four times.  I made the sprays come from a central spot and made them so they’d extend beyond the Painted Harvest flower I was planning for the middle of the card.

Painted Harvets Count My Blessings - Stamps-N-Lingers 1

I sprinkled the four flower-sprays with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heated them up.  When it was cool, I used my Powder Pink Stampin’ Write Marker to lightly color each of the flowers.

For the flower, I stamped the larger image in Painted Harvest several times in Powder Pink on Whisper White.  With each stamp, I rotated the image slightly.  Then I stamped the second, smaller, image in Sweet Sugarplum – twice – rotating the stamp.

Painted Harvets Count My Blessings - Stamps-N-Lingers 2

I stamped the middle of the flower twice in Daffodil Delight and then added the small three-dot image in Daffodil Delight multiple times.

Then I fussy cut the flower. 🙂

I dry fit the flower over the gold-embossed sprays, and then stamped the sentiment from Painted Harvest in Versamark and heat embossed it in Gold.

Painted Harvets Count My Blessings - Stamps-N-Lingers 3

I put a few Glue Dots on the back of my fussy cut flower and used them to wind multiple loops of Gold Metallic Thread round, then I popped the flower onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  To finish off the card front, I added a few Gold Metallic Enamel Shapes.

On the inside, I added another Powder Pink and Sweet Sugarplum flower from Painted Harvest.  And I finished the middle with more Daffodil Delight.

Painted Harvets Count My Blessings - Stamps-N-Lingers 5

I Fast Fuse’d the panel on a Powder Pink mat and into 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 another of the Painted Harvest flowers on the front…

Painted Harvets Count My Blessings - Stamps-N-Lingers 6

…and some more Count My Blessings flower sprays – stamped in Pear Pizzazz and colored with my Powder Pink Stampin’ Write Marker – on the envelope flap.

Painted Harvets Count My Blessings - Stamps-N-Lingers 7

Et Voila!  Painted Harvest brings yet another gorgeous flower to life, this time accented by the pretty and delicate flower sprays in the Count My Blessings stamp set.  Hope you like! 🙂

Finn-Fan Fix  

We had a good time yesterday at Scout’s house!

Matt’s girlfriend, Kaitlin, brought her female Aussie, named Hannah.

That’s right – 3 Aussies – and Finn was the youngest.

And – biggest!

He had a total blast.

There were sticks involved…

IMG_9687

Hannah played referee.  

This particular standoff lasted quite some time, with both of them just staring at each other.  Their expressions were so serious and intense.  Getting the stick is important Aussie business.  Please note that Hannah is ensuring that no stick-tug rules are being broken.

IMG_4511 2

At the end of the day, he was tired but really happy.  And quite ready to go home! 🙂
