Stampin’ Up! Gilded Autumn Love of Leaves Card with Video Tutorial

Happy Friday, y’all!  Hope you’ve got a decent weekend in store – if you’re cleaning up after Sally’s visit – I wish you well in those endeavors!  We got some pretty solid rain and wind – but nothing catastrophic where we are.  So…we were lucky.  Didn’t even lose internet! 😳😳😳

If you were able to join me yesterday for my YouTube live, I appreciate you spending some time with me – if not, but you’d like to see the replay, here ’tis! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Celebration Tidings Always Grateful

Good morning and happy Monday!  Did you do something fun this weekend?

On Sunday – our team got together via Zoom for our Quarterly Team Meeting!  And – in addition to getting Stampin’ Up! updates AND doing an awesome Prize Patrol…a few of us demo’d some cards for the team to make.  In TTBC (The Time Before COVID) – we’d have met in person and crafted together to make the four cards.  Now-a-days?  Zoom zoom!

We all used the same bundle – the Celebration Tidings bundle – but…boy, were our projects different!  Although… we DID all use Plaid Tidings DSP!  Appears we all LOVE Plaid Tidings DSP and want it to stick around forever!!

The card that I did has an autumn theme – all ready for cool Fall days and the arrival of pumpkins and leaves galore.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! World’s Greatest – August 2020 Paper Pumpkin!

Good Saturday, y’all!  Hope you’re ready for a great weekend – I’ll be hanging “virtually” with a BUNCH of Stampin’ Up! Leaders today – and that’s what I got to do yesterday, too!  Awesome info being passed to us – using a platform that is ALMOST as good as being there.

I laid in some extra candy just to make the experience more “real”! 😉

The other day, I got my August Paper Pumpkin in the mail!  It’s called World’s Greatest – and it’s full of….great! 😎…goodies to make 9 cards and coordinating envelopes!

Can you tell that one of the designs is a shaker card?  Well…trust me on this.  It totally is!

And they ALL have foil accents – which is too fun!

Lots of great sentiments for you, too – for the kit projects AND for future cards!

The stamp set – called World’s Greatest is – like ALL Paper Pumpkin stamp sets – exclusive to the kit.

The kit – again like ALL Paper Pumpkin kits! – comes with everything you need to make the projects – as well as the instructions! 🙂

Once everything is together – this is what you’ll have!  And – you KNOW how I feel about envelopes!  #nonekkidenvelopes  🙂

And – you don’t have to stop there – you could make a few “as directed” cards and then go off on your own.  Here’s some ideas for you!  How cute is that pencil?!?

You can check out the “official” Stampin’ Up! video for this month’s kit right here!

So – there’s what August looked like! September’s kit rolls in….FALL!

As the autumn season approaches, prepare to celebrate with the September Paper Pumpkin Kit! There’s so much to love about fall—some love the haunts of Halloween, many love the time to give thanks, and others love the changing colors and cooler temperatures. Whatever you love most about fall, September’s kit has everything you need to celebrate the season your way!

September’s kit is a must-have for those who love to celebrate all things spooky.  But, for those who DON’T enjoy the Halloween haunts, the multi-occasion stamp set – combined with a variety of die-cut and reversible paper pieces – offers many ways to customize your fall crafts!

The Hello Pumpkin Paper Pumpkin Kit includes enough supplies to create projects celebrating Halloween, Thanksgiving, and the autumn season. Make them all the same, or mix ‘n’ match!

Here’s the deets….

  • Kit contains enough supplies to create 20 cracker box treat packages.
  • Each cracker box treat package can be customized to celebrate Halloween, Thanksgiving, the autumn season, or all three!
  • Coordinating Colors: Bumblebee, Basic Black, Cajun Craze, Cinnamon Cider, Mossy Meadow, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, white
  • And – to get THIS kit, you MUST be signed up by 10 Sep.  Sign up on 11 Sep….and you’ll get the OCTOBER kit.  Which is probably awesome – but…it’s not THIS one!

 

So – are you a Paper Pumpkin Subscriber?  If you’re not – but…you’d like to give these fun, all-inclusive kits, a try – you can sign up for a subscription where you are billed monthly for your kit OR you can purchase a prepaid subscription in my online store.  To see more information and to sign up for the monthly subscription, click here.

My Fundraiser to Help Iowa – ends in TWO Days!!

On 10 August, the state of Iowa was hit with a derecho storm.  If you have seen any videos of it – it truly looked like a hurricane had hit Iowa.  Uhm – because it totally had – winds in the 100+mph range (that’s Cat 2 territory, folks!)  With no warning to speak of.  To say it was devastating is a bit of an understatement! 🙁

As a result of the storm, at least 43% of the corn and soybeans grown in the state were lost.  Which will be seen in the supermarkets where you and I get our food!  But beyond all that – many in that state are hurting, have lost their homes, schools and businesses and some are still without power (12+ days after the storm and with daytime temps in the 90’s ). Many farm families lost everything and are left with a huge mess to clean up prior to planting next spring.  With so much destruction, they can really use our help!

There’s an organization in Cedar Rapids, IA, called the Iowa Giving Crew, a Cedar Rapids based non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that’s helping to get power restored to those still waiting, is feeding those in need, provides 3 meals a day and is helping with the cleanup.  They’ve got a Facebook page that you can see here with photos and details about the help they’re providing.

In an effort to help, I’ve set a goal of donating $500 to the Iowa Giving Crew.

How can you help me help them??

Place a Stampin’ Up! Order Or Donate Directly!

There are two ways you can help me to reach my goal:

Shop Online: For any orders placed through my online store between now and 31 August 2020 I’ll be donating 20% of your merchandise total to the Iowa Giving Crew.

  • 20% of orders placed through my online store between now and 31 August 2020 will be donated to the Iowa Giving Crew.
  • You’ll earn Peppermint Points and a thank you gift from me with all orders of $50! See my host code details below.
  • Anyone ordering $50+ will be entered to win a new Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine from me to be given away on 1 September 2020! See the details below.

OR….

Make a Donation of $25+ directly to the Iowa Giving Crew:

  • Anyone worldwide is welcome to make a donation to the charity directly via Venmo or PayPal to help (see the details to donate on the Iowa Giving Crew website here).
  • For those in the US, send me a screenshot of the receipt for your donation of $25+ to the Iowa Giving Crew to stamps-n-lingers@comcast.net and you’ll be entered to win the new Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine* to be given away on 1 September! See the details below.
  • If you order $50+ through my Stampin’ Up! store AND donate at least $25 directly to the Iowa Giving Crew, your name will be entered twice to win the machine!

Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine Giveaway

1 September!

As an added bonus, I’ll enter anyone who either orders $50+ through my online store between now and 31 August 2020 OR who makes a direct donation* to the Iowa Giving Crew by 31 August 2020 into a drawing for a brand new Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine!

*Please note: Per Stampin’ Up! rules, I’m only allowed to ship the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine to addresses in the United States or military APO addresses.  Only those with US/APO shipping addresses will be eligible to win the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine. Anyone outside the US is welcome to donate but will not be eligible to win the machine. Orders and/or Donations must be placed by midnight MT on 31 August 2020 to be entered to win the machine.  One winner of the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine will be randomly chosen on Tuesday, 1 September from all of the entries received.

Questions?
Drop me an email at stamps-n-lingers@comcast.net with any questions.  I so appreciate your help and donations to help the good folks in Iowa!! #iowastrong #derecho2020

UPDATE!!  Right now, we’re at $500!  YEAH!! 

Since there are still a few days left … I’ve decided to add a SECOND Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine if we hit $1000 in combined donations by the end of the day on 31 Aug!!

Finn Fan Fix 

Most evenings – Finn does one of two things.

I ask – are you ready for bed or do you want to go outside?

He responds by either heading down the hall to the bedroom or to the back door to go out.

Okay – a lot of his answer depends on where he’s standing and where he’s “pointed” when I ask it! I think he goes out sometimes with no real need! 😉

On the nights he chooses to go outside – I put his blinky light collar on and tell him to hurry and come right back.

When he comes in he makes a beeline for bed.

Usually – I can snag him in time to take the blinky light collar.

Sometimes…I miss…

You gotta be quick – once he heads to bed….he’s like a HF on a laser! 😉

Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Autumn Thank You

Happy happy HAWWMP Day, y’all!  Hope your week is going well!  We’re about ready to harvest mushrooms around here – we’ve had so much rain that we’ve got fungus a-mung-us!  On the arena – behind the house – next to the driveway.  White ones – red ones – orange ones – speckled ones.

No.  We don’t eat them.  Wayne is pretty certain that at least some of them are edible.

I am equally certain that I will NEVER know! 😉

My card today is a simple one – clean, even!  I know – it’s sort of surprising!  But – miracles happen!  I used the sweet little Beautiful Autumn Bundle to put together a pretty thank you card.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Plaid Love of Leaves 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 theme/inspiration 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!

So – the other day, I saw a card made by the Queen-of-Clean, Mary Fish.  And I absolutley fell in love with it – to the point where I simply had to make it for myself.  I thunked and I thunked on how to change it up – to make it more mine – but…there was no changing her perfectly perfect design.  So – I decided to use the same Love of Leaves with the amazeballs Stitched Leaves Dies and Plaid Tidings DSP – just like she did.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Queen Anne’s Lace for the Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Good morning, 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 our theme is Celebrate Summer!  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!

Summer and flowers really go together for me!  Well – actually, summer and chile peppers and tomatoes, but…flowers are so much prettier on a card, am I right?!  So…I used a new-to-me set called Queen Anne’s Lace – and I put it atop some bright and summery Artistry Blooms DSP!  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Gilded Beautiful Autumn Sneak Peek

Good Monday morning, my stamping friends!  Hope your weekend was good.  We worked in the garden, worked around the house, got catalog envelopes labeled and ready to roll when the catalogs arrive this week….generally stayed hunkered down around here.  Watching the news make us think we need to throttle back to our stay-home mode from a couple of weeks ago…. which is good for our to-do list, for sure! 🙂

Yesterday, I gave in to my burning desire to play with the stunning new Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP and the coordinating Beautiful Autumn bundle.  These are all in the Aug – Dec 2020 Mini Catalog which demonstrators are able to order from right now – and customers can get their hands on on 4 Aug!  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! 2020 Aug-Dec Mini Catalog Love of Leaves Sneak Peek!

Hey, y’all – happy (?) Monday!  I added the question mark just in case you’re not thrilled for the week to get back underway!

My Monday is likely going to be pretty average – with the exception of having to go to the dentist this afternoon for a crown prep. Bleh.

Thank goodness for nitrous, am I right?!?  Sooo much nicer than the suck-it-up-buttercup of military dentistry!  Novocaine?  We got that.  Gas that makes you not care when we GIVE you the shot?

uhm…nope. 😉

So this is much better all the way around!

My card today is a sneak peek of a wunnermus new bundle in the 2020 Aug – Dec Mini Catalog (formerly known as the Holiday Catalog) – I took inspiration from one of the pretty samples in the catalog!  You’re going to be able to get these on 4 August!  It’s the Love of Leaves stamp set which will be bundled with the amaze-balls Stitched Leaves Dies that I set atop the gorgeous new Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Pattern Play-ful Alphabet with 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 Joanne’s Clean-And-Simple challenge this week and it’ll for sure jump-start your creative mojo!  I hope you’ll come and play along.  🙂

If you were able to join me yesterday for my Facebook Live video, I appreciate you spending some of your weekend with me!  If you weren’t able to watch the live version, but you’d like to see the replay on YouTube…here ’tis!

This week, I SAW and acknowledged the “clean-and-simple” part of the challenge – and decided this was a great chance to use a new bundle – the Pattern Play stamp set with the awesome Playful Alphabet dies.  I added a little In Good Taste DSP to the mix and…well…take a look-see:

Okay – if this isn’t clean-and-simple, then…I guess I need some learnin’!! 😉

And here’s this week’s Paper Players Theme challenge!  Hope you’ll join the fun and show us your projects!  I can’t wait to see what you create!

 

My layout was inspired by this week’s Tuesday Morning Sketches challenge.

…and the colors worked well with the Sunday Stamps challenge, too!

I started by cutting my letters for the word “thanks”, using the new Playful Alphabet dies.  Y’all – you know how sometimes letter dies are TOOO big?  And sometimes they’re TOOO small and fussy!??  Well – THESE are JUUUUSSST right!  In fact – they’re perfect!

I cut them twice each – once from some wood-design paper in the In Good Taste DSP pack and again in Real Red cardstock.   NOTE: in the video card, I first adhered the Real Red card stock to a piece of the new Foam Adhesive Sheets and then went from there. Y’all – they are COOL!!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the wood letters to the Real Red ones, offsetting them just a smidge to create a shadow.

Then I laid them out on my Whisper White panel to get the location correct.

I inked the solid hearts image from the Pattern Play set in Real Red and stamped it above my dry-fit sentiment.

Then I embossed the panel in the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder.  You want to emboss AFTER you stamp.

Or…you can emboss and THEN stamp – but you’ll want to use your Stamparatus so that you can stamp it a couple of times…

Trust me on this, okay? 😉

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Balmy Blue mat.

Then, using Liquid Glue – I adhered the letters.  Note: the Foam Adhesive Sheets have their own adhesive, so…no Glue needed!

Finally, I wrapped some twine from the Playful Pets Trim Combo Pack around the panel a couple of times – securing it in the back with Glue Dots.  I wrapped a short length around the two wraps and tied a little bow – and the card front was done!

Clean. And. Simple.

Told ya. 😉

On the inside, I inked the diagonal hashmark image in Balmy Blue and added it across the bottom of a Whisper White panel (it’s photoploymer – so easy to line up just right!).  Then I added some Real Red hearts.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Balmy Blue 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 more Balmy Blue hash marks and Real Red hearts across the front…

…and more of the In Good Taste DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Y’all – I LOVE this new Playful Alphabet stamp set!  The dies are perfectly sized to do ANYthing you want – and the set includes numbers and punctuation, too!   Use it alone – or combine it with the sentiments and texture/design images in the bundled Pattern Play stamp set.

I hope you like!

What do you think?  Is THIS the bundle you’ll pick when you join my team during the amazing Pick a Free Bundle Starter Kit Promotion??  Inquiring minds want to know! 🤔

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

Finn Fan Fix


The other day – there came a heckuva a ruckus on the roof.

I actually thought there was a racoon up there.

Or…a rhinocerous.

Finn knew EXACTLY what…and WHERE!…the problem was.

See it?

HE does. 😉

Stampin’ Up! Pattern Play Alphabet Video Tutorial Sneak Peek

Morning, y’all!  Happy Saturday!  Weekends are the best – especially now that so many of you are heading back to work.  For a minute, the weekend – the weekday – mox nix!

Can I make a plug for wearing your mask and keeping your distance?  Please, folks.  This is still a “thing” – we can’t act like it isn’t.

Okay – that’s it.  Lecture complete. 😉

Now – tonight – we’ll be perfectly safe and socially distanced – no mask needed!  I’ll be live on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page at 7pm eastern time and we’re going to play with a little of my new-goodies-stash.  Yes – it came and…I got everything organized and labeled and just waiting to play.  So…play I did – and we’re going to make a clean-and-simple card (yes – I am making a CAS card.  Don’t doubt it!).  As part of the new Playing with Patterns Suite,  we’ve got an awesome alphabet die set – called Playful Alphabet – and It.  Is.  Cool!  So…take a sneaky peek!

I don’t do a lot of CAS cards (says Capt Understatement!) so…you’ll wanna see it!  😉

Hope to see you tonight.  7pm Eastern.  Right here.

Finn Fan Fix


On Finn’s birthday, he got a present.

Of course.

Did you doubt it at all??

HE doesn’t care if it looks a LOT like a CHRISTMAS elf…

He spent a little time flipping it around and chewing it and shaking it real good.

Got to break these toys in quick, you know. 🙂

But – as so many of us do to mark the end of another trip around the sun, he spent a little time in quiet contemplation of his life.

Where is he going from here?   What are his life goals?  He’s a relatively young man, yet.

Perhaps a red convertible…..
