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! 🤔

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…..

Stampin’ Up! Prized Peony Bouquet Thank You with a Video Tutorial!

Good morning and Happy Friday! 🙂  Hope you’ve got a fun weekend planned!

I’m hoping to have some friends come this afternoon to do a little card making.  We’ll wear our masks and stay as socially distanced as possible. But – she’s retiring from the airline soon and is thinking maybe card-ing would be fun now that she’ll have some time.  And – she’s intrigued (rightly enough!) by the current joining special.  She likes the sound of “FREE” as much as the next person – and a bundle of free?  Yes, please! 🙂

Now – one of the awesomer new bundles in the catalog and…one she – or you! – could pick for free – is the Prized Peony Bundle.  The Prized Peony stamp set is gorgeous, for sure.  But – the real prize (see what I did there?) is the bundled Peony Dies.  Which lets you cut out all the gorgeous flower images in the stamp set AND lets you build stunning 3D peonies. Like I created today.  Take a look-see:

So – if you were able to join me yesterday for my YouTube live, I appreciate you spending some time with me – and you got to see exactly how to build these peonies.  If not – take a gander at it here on YouTube.  Moving pictures are worth a gazillion words! 😉

The layout for this one was loosely inspired by this week’s challenge over at Tuesday Morning Sketches.

I started with a piece of In Good Taste DSP wood-grain paper that I matted on Just Jade for the card front using new Stampin’ Seal.

I created some leaves using the dies in the Peony Dies – each leaf uses two different dies.  I created them from Just Jade 2020-2022 In Color 6″ x 6″ DSP and from Mint Macaron card stock.  The larger solid leaves in Mint Macaron, I embossed in the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder.

Then I adhered the leaf parts together with Liquid Glue.

I cut three flowers – they each take 4 parts….

One I cut from Whisper White card stock, one from Mango Melody Brights 6″ x 6″ DSP and one from So Saffron Subtles 6″ x 6″ DSP.  Using an almost-dry Sponge Dauber, I lightly brushed the edges of all the flower pieces.

I ran the four Whisper White petals thru the cutting and embossing machine in the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder.

Then I used my Bone Folder to curl all the petals into a most-realistic looking shape. 😉

Finally – I assembled all the flowers.  Just remember – the smallest petal into the next largest into the next largest and finally into the biggest petal.  Align the “notch” at the bottom and adhere with Liquid Glue.

Confused?  Truly – it’s easy.  Watch the video and I’ll prove it to you! 🙂

I stamped the Prized Peony sentiment in Early Espresso on a piece of Whisper White, then used the smallest rectangle die cut in the Stitched So Sweetly die set to cut the sentiment.  That die is the right width – but is too short.  So…I made the cut longer by running thru the machine twice.  Check the video – this part starts at about 34:45 into the video.  LOTS easier to show than to write! 🙂

I laid out my collage and took a picture – first of the whole thing and then with the top flower off…

Then I started adhering all the pieces and parts with Liquid Glue and Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I used a couple of Glue Dots to adhere a Linen Thread “Figure 8” before adding the final Mango Melody flower.

A few of the new Elegant Faceted Gems – the pink ones – finished off the card front!

On the inside, I inked the Peony image (the middle sized one) from Prized Peony in Magenta Madness.  Then I stamped it off twice before stamping a Whisper White panel.  I repeated that three more times.  Then I colored them with my Light So Saffron and Light Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends.  I also added a second sentiment in Early Espresso.

I used Stampin’ Seal to adhere the panel to a Just Jade mat and into my Early Espresso card base, added the card front with Liquid Glue – and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another Prized Peony on the front…

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

Et Voila – does this Peony Die set not make the more stunningly gorgeous flowers??  I can’t believe how real you can make them look – just by stacking four die cuts together!  And the beautiful images and sentiments in the bundled Prized Peony round this out to be the perfect bundle!

I hope you like – and have this one coming soon!  Or…that it’s on the short list for your free pick when you join my team! 😉

If you’d like to re-create this card, all the products needed and card cuts are down below! 🙂

Finn Fan Fix


Yesterday, Wayne got back from being in NC for a few days working on our rental property.

Which meant it was – finally!! – time to turn these…

…into this…

No – NOT the yellow squash – it’s destined for different things!

Served up with some corn bread?  Oh yes – that’s some good eating!

Well – the Finn-meister was NOT convinced that what I was working on was VEGETABLES!!!

“I LOVE beans, Mom. ESPECIALLY French Algarve beans that I grew myself!”

He doesn’t.  I promise.

Now – the ham in the beans??  Likely a far different story! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! A Beautiful World Thanks 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!

And here’s our sketch challenge.

I pulled the color scheme from the TGIF Challenge this week.

I started with some World of Good Specialty DSP and matted it on Night of Navy for the card front.

I took a second – Bumble Bee – piece and matted it on Night of Navy, too – then adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I put a piece of Whisper White card stock into my Stamparatus and used it to stamp the Beautiful World sentiment in Night of Navy ink.  Over that, in stamped-off-once Crumb Cake, I added the world globe image.

I cut the sentiment with a circle Stitched Shapes die.

I used my Layering Circles dies to cut two scalloped-edged circles – the larger from Night of Navy and a smaller one from Brass Foil.  I adhered the foil circle to the Night of Navy circle with Liquid Glue.

I popped the sentiment onto the matted circles with Black Stampin’ Dimensionals and then used Liquid Glue to adhere it all to the card front.

I used Glue Dots to adhere an Antique Corner to each corner of the middle panel – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I used my Stamparatus to add a sentiment from Massive Thanks in Night of Navy to a Whisper White panel.  Over top is another stamped-off-once Crumb Cake globe image.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Night of Navy mat and into my Bumble Bee card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got a Beautiful World globe image in full-strength Crumb Cake on the front…

…and more of the World of Good Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  The Beautiful World set is perfect for masculine cards – but…don’t let it get “stuck” in that compartment, okay?  It’s just a wonderful bundle for all your projects….

…and – this bundle could be yours for FREE – PLUS another $125 worth of the Stampin’ Up! goodies of your choice and free shipping – for just $99 when you take advantage of our awesome joining special right now!!

I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Massive Thanks to a Wild Rose 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 a Theme challenge from the talented Anne Marie 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!

When I first saw the new Massive Thanks stamp set – I was pretty smitten with all the fun ways to express our thanks!  And the new Rainbow Glimmer Paper – just WORKS in the Wild Rose dies.  Take a look-see:

Stampin' Up! Massive Thanks to a Wild Rose - Stamps-N-Lingers 1

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!

And I borrowed the layout from this week’s CAS(E) This Sketch challenge.

So – Rainbows and such aren’t really in my wheelhouse and I don’t have a ton of sets (or…any??) that fit that bill.  So….I was tickled silly when the new RAINBOW Glimmer Paper got here in time for me to make my card for the challenge.

I mean – it’s IN THE NAME – so…it totally counts! 😉

I started with a piece of Basic Black cardstock for the card front and used one of the Stitched Nested Labels dies to cut out a piece.  I used a larger die to cut a Mango Melody piece. Then I adhered the card front to a Mango Melody mat with Liquid Glue.

I adhered the Mango Melody die cut and then the Basic Black die cut with more Liquid Glue.

I stuck a piece of Whisper White card stock to a new Adhesive Sheet and then cut three flowers and three leaves from it using dies from the Wild Rose Die set.

Next, I pulled out some of the new and stunning!! – Rainbow Glimmer paper.  Y’all – this is so pretty, you can’t even believe it.  And – like all the “new” Glimmer Papers – the glitter STAYS ON THE PAPER!!

I used the Press-and-Seal technique (I watched Kylie Bertucci’s fun video – a bunch of times, actually! – to figure it out!) and cut three flowers from various color-spots in the Glimmer Paper.

Using Mini Black Stampin’ Dimensionals – I adhered the cut-out pieces to pieces of Basic Black cardstock.  Then I peeled the adhesive off the back of the Whisper White flowers – and added them over the top.

I used “regular” paper piecing to do the same for the leaves from Wild Rose.

Once all the pieces were adhered to Basic Black – I fussy cut them.

Using a combination of Liquid Glue and Black Stampin’ Dimensionals – I adhered the white flowers and a couple of the Rainbow Glimmer die cut leaves – to the card front.

I stamped a cute sentiment from the new Massive Thanks set in Bermuda Bay on Whisper White and cut it with a smaller Stitched Nested Labels die.  This is adhered with stacked Black Stampin’ Dimensionals – and completed the card front!

On the inside, I stamped a second sentiment from Massive Thanks in Bermuda Bay on a piece of Whisper White.   Using Liquid Glue, I adhered some of the Rainbow Glimmer Paper die cut flowers and leaves, trimming the excess with my Paper Snips.

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got some flowers from To A Wild Rose on the front. I inked the image with Mango Melody, then lightly sponged here and there with Magenta Madness.  I also stamped a Granny Apple Green leaf image…

…and did the same on the envelope flap!

Et Voila!  Okay – the beautiful Wild Rose dies are perfect for paper piecing – and…the new Rainbow Glimmer Paper is ALSO perfect for paper piecing!  I can’t get over how pretty it is!  And the new Massive Thanks stamp set – what a fun sentiment set, y’all!  Check out all the possibilites!

I love it!  And I know you will, too – so…I hope it’s on your shopping list!

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

Now – before you reach for your ink and papers, check out what our amazing team has created to inspire you this week:

It’s drink-from-the-hose season!

Y’all remember drinking from the hose?

We didn’t worry about whether it was a “yellow” hose – or a “green” hose – or a “blue” hose.

It was a hose.

With water coming out.

Finn has a similar thought.

Hose?  Water?

Drink!

Done!

Stampin’ Up! Forever Greenery Lovely You Sneak Peek

Good morning!  Let’s have a moment of silence for the last day of the awesome 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.

Okay.  Done?

Now – let’s get ready to RUMMMBLE!!!  TOMORROW!

Yes – you have to wait until tomorrow to RUMMMBLE!!  That’s when the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog will be available to you for ordering!

For now….speaking of new catalog goodies – I’ve got a couple on my cards to share with you today. Yep – I said cards – as in multiples! I made eight of these – four in each design, using the new Forever Greenery DSP and the Lovely You stamp set.  Plus…a little Well Written (available now – and carrying over!) Die cutting! Take a look-see:

The clean and easy design for this one is from the CAS(E) This Sketch challenge this week.

I used two different paper designs in the new Forever Greenery DSP – and Petal Pink mats on both of them.  I adhered the paper to the mats with Liquid Glue.

For the sentiment, I used a Stitched Rectangle Die and cut either a Shaded Spruce or a Pretty Peacock “mat” for the sentiment.

The sentiment itself is cut from Petal Pink with a die in the Well Written Die set – then it’s adhered to the “mat” with Liquid Glue.

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

I tied little bows from the gold twine in the new Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack and adhered them with a dab of Liquid Glue.  I love this gold twine – and I unraveled the “tails” of the bows to make them even prettier! 🙂

I added a single Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewel and the card fronts – all EIGHT of them! – were done!

On the inside, on a Very Vanilla panel, I stamped one of the gorgeous DistINKtive leaf images from Forever Fern in Pear Pizzazz.  The Lovely You stamp set provided the pretty sentiment – stamped in Pretty Peacock or Shaded Spruce.  Each panel got another Champagne Rhinestone.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Petal Pink mat and into my Shaded Spruce or Pretty Peacock card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals – and the cards were done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelopes all got Forever Fern leaves in Pear Pizzazz on the front…

…and more of the Forever Greenery DSP on the envelope flaps.

Et Voila!  Some gorgeous Forever Greenery DSP….a die cut from Well Written…and a perfect sentiment from Lovely You!  And wonderful leaf images from Forever Fern – and you’ve got the makings of tons of cards for all sorts of occasions!!

 

I put them all together and – with just a little stamping and die cutting – got 8 pretty thank you cards in short order!

I hope you like and have added these sets to your gotta-have-it-now list!

P.S.  Just so you know what to expect tomorrow, 3 June – as we transition the Stampin’ Up! ordering system to the new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog….Stampin’ Up! reminded us that ordering will be unavailable from midnight to noon (MT) while we transition our systems to the new catalog. Ordering will be restored no later than noon (MT).

The GOOD news is that you don’t have to get up at the crack of dawn to start ordering your faves!  The bad news is that you may be awake then anyway – out of sheer excitement! – and you won’t be able to start ordering your faves! 😉

P.P.S.  The the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog and 2020 Jan – Jun Mini Catalog retiring products will be gone TONIGHT!  Don’t miss out!

The world is in chaos, it seems.  We’ve got good happening –

that is overshadowed by the bad…

Stampin’ Up! Tasteful Touches Sneak Peek You Are The Best

Happy Happy Hawwwmp Day!  And – we’re EXACTLY one week away from the new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog debut!  Whoo-hoo!!  I know you can hardly wait to get your mitts on some of the new goodies!  Don’t miss out on the great goodies that are Retiring and leaving us, though – they’ll be gone on 2 June!

And…DO be sure to scroll all the way down the post today to check out the AMAZEBALLS Joining Special that Stampin’ Up! just revealed!  It starts on the 3rd – and…includes a FREE BUNDLE!  Yes – ANY bundle in the new catalog for FREE.  On top of the already-great-Starter Kit deal-y-o!

My card today uses one of those new bundles – maybe it’s one you’ll pick for YOUR Starter Kit? 😉  It’s the Tasteful Touches stamp set and bundled Tastelful Labels Dies.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one was inspired by the sketch at CAS Colours & Sketches.

I started with a panel of Sahara Sand card stock.  Down near the bottom, in Sahara Sand ink, I stamped the filigree image from Tasteful Touches.  Next to it, I stamped the leaves image – also in Sahara Sand.

I used the large circle die in the Tasteful Labels die set to cut the card front.  I left the die cut in place, and embossed the whole panel in the new Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder.

Using the leaves stamp again, I stamped all over the panel using stamped-off-once Sahara Sand ink.  The stamp hits just the tops of the embossing and barely colors it – giving a wonderful textural quality to the card front! 🙂

Then I matted the panel on a Petal Pink mat with Liquid Glue.  I popped the cut-out circle back in place with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On another piece of Sahara Sand, I stamped the leaves again in Sahara Sand.  Then I cut the image out with another label die from Tasteful Labels.  I embossed the little label in the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to the card front – lining up the two images – with Dimensionals and some Liquid Glue.

I stamped the beautiful Tasteful Touches flower on Very Vanilla in Sahara Sand ink and colored it with my Light Petal Pink and Dark So Saffron Stampin’ Blends.  Then I fussy cut the flower – and edged it with my Sahara Sand Stampin’ Write Marker.

Using a couple of Glue Dots – I wound a length of 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim into a loose “bow”.

Then I popped the flower over top with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The sentiment, from Tasteful Touches, I stamped in Petal Pink on Very Vanilla and then fussy cut each word.  I edged each little piece with the Sahara Sand Stampin’ Write Marker.  Then I adhered each word with Liquid Glue.

I added some Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a second Tasteful Touches sentiment in Petal Pink to a Very Vanilla panel.  I stamped the flower and leaves in Sahara Sand and colored the flower with the Light Petal Pink and Dark So Saffron Blends.  A single Champagne Rhinestone finished it off.

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

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got more flowers and leaves on the front…

…and on the envelope flap!

Et Voila!  Love love love this Tasteful Touches bundle – the stamp set is stunning with it’s flower and textural elements – plus the gorgeous sentiments.  The bundled Tasteful Labels die set is…truly going to be a workhorse for you!

 

I hope you like – and have already added this one to your “must have” list for next week!

Or…maybe it IS the bundle you’ll pick for FREE with your Starter Kit!! 😉

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

You know – if I search thru my phone for all the pictures I’ve taken since he came to live with us, of my Finny-win sleeping, I bet I’d find about a gazillion.

But…I can’t help it very much.

He goes to great lengths to sleep so stinkin’ cutely.

Case in point.

Seriously – how could I NOT take this picture??

Stampin’ Up! Lovely You Mountain Air Sneak Peek

Good morning, my peeps!  Welcome to another week.  If you’re still self-isolating, then…it’s week 52 of May!

Just helping you keep oriented to the goings on in the “outside world”! You’re welcome. 😉

My card today is a special request for a thank you card, for a man, who lives in the mountains and has a tree trimming/clearing business.  Obviously, I headed for the Mountain Air stamp set with its bundled Majestic Mountain Dies (carrying over), and I pulled a sentiment from the new Lovely You stamp set (NEW in the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog).  Take a look-see:

I pulled the layout for it from this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

I started with a piece of Crumb Cake card stock and, in Early Espresso, stamped the mountain range from Mountain Air.  I stamped it a second time in Crumb Cake – offsetting it a little to create a “range”.

Then I embossed the panel in the Woodland Embossing Folder.

Across the bottom of the panel, with Liquid Glue, I adhered a strip of Early Espresso cardstock.  I also cut a triangle and adhered it on the right side.

I created the “barn wood” fence/wall using strips of the new In Good Taste DSP (also coming on 3 Jun in the new catalog).  The strips varied in width.  I laid them out in a lattice fashion…

…and used Liquid Glue to adhere them.  Then I trimmed the excess with my Paper Trimmer and matted the panel on Mossy Meadow.

I stamped the sentiment from Lovely You in Mossy Meadow on a piece of Crumb Cake card stock, using my Stamparatus.  Then I cut it out with a Stitched Nested Label die.

I stamped a few trees from Mountain Air in Mossy Meadow on Crumb Cake and cut them with their matching dies in the Majestic Mountain die set.  I also cut a few of the detailed trees dies from Mossy Meadow.

The final piece of prep was a double-loop Linen Thread bow.

Then I laid everything out until I got it how I wanted it (including a length of new 1/4″ Faux Suede Trim)…and took a couple of pictures.

First with everything in place…

 

…and then I picked up the sentiment…

I adhered the Faux Suede Trim using Glue Dots on the back of the card front, then I added all the trees with Liquid Glue.

The double-loop bow is adhered with a Glue Dot.  Then I popped the sentiment and final tree on with Dimensionals.  And the card front was done.

On the inside, I stamped the mountain range in Early Espresso and Crumb Cake on a Crumb Cake panel.  Then I adhered a strip of Early Espresso and more strips of In Good Taste DSP.

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

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got some Mossy Meadow pine trees on the front…

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

Et Voila!  Well – what do you think?  Mountains – check.  Trees – check.  Masculine – check.  Thanks to the wonderful scenic images from the Mountain Air set and the matching dies in Majestic Mountain – it’s pretty easy to create any sort of mountain scene!  So glad that it’s carrying over!

And the brand new Lovely You stamp set is chock full of all sorts of sentiments – in really pretty fonts!

I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! World of Good Sneak Peek 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 a clean-and-simple Theme challenge from our amazing Ann 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!

I went – once again – to the wonderful new Beautiful World Bundle – part of the World of Good Suite in the new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.  And…it’s a fun-fold.  Again.

Sorry?

Nope – not sorry.

Take a look-see:

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!  🙂

I also played along with the Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge – going across the middle row!

I first saw this fun-fold on my friend Karen Ksenazakovic’s blog and decided to try one of my own!

I started by cutting my piece of Early Espresso 8 1/2″ x 11″ card stock as shown in the video.  First I scored it at 5 1/2″ along the long side.  Then I scored it along the short side at 2 1/8″ and 6 3/8″.

Using my Paper Trimmer, I cut out the small rectangles on one side.

Once I folded the card stock, I was left with a tent card that holds a secret “gate card” on the inside!

Next, I adhered some wordly paper from the World of Good Specialty DSP to the front of the card base with Liquid Glue.

I cut a piece of Bumble Bee card stock and embossed it in the Old World Paper 3D Embossing Folder.  With a sponge, I lightly brushed over the raised areas of the card stock with Crumb Cake ink.  Then I tore the edges of the panel and adhered it to the card front, on an angle, with Liquid Glue.

With the die in the World Map Die set (bundled with Beautiful World), I cut out a bunch of North America world dies (there’s also a die with the “other” half of the world) from Crumb Cake and used Liquid Glue to adhere them to a Crumb Cake panel.  Then I used my Trimmer to cut the panel down to the size I wanted – and popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Using SNAIL, I adhered a length of Bumble Bee 2020-2022 In Color 1/4″ Ribbon and a piece of the open-weave ribbon in the new Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack (all this ribbon will be available to you on 3 Jun!!).

Using the dies in the World Map Die set, I cut a Mossy Meadow circle and a detailed globe and adhered them together with Liquid Glue.  I also cut a “stand” from some new Brass Foil (coming 3 Jun), and added it with Liquid Glue, too.  Then I adhered it to the card front.

I tied a double-loop Linen Thread bow and adhered it with a Glue Dot.

I stamped the Beautiful World sentiment in Mossy Meadow on Bumble Bee card stock and cut it with a die from the Tasteful Labels Die set (3 Jun).  Then I popped it over the bow with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card front was done!

On the inside, I matted two pieces of World of Good Specialty DSP on Bumble Bee and then to the gates with Liquid Glue.

On the All-the-Way-Inside, I stamped a second sentiment from Beautiful World in Mossy Meadow on Whisper White.  Then I added a compass in Crumb Cake over top.  In the corner, I stamped a Mossy Meadow inkwell and Crumb Cake quill.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Bumble Bee mat and into the card base and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got the inkwell and quill on the front…

…and more of the World of Good Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I LOVE this hidden-gate fun fold (I just made that up – I have NO idea if that’s what it’s called!), don’t you??  It’s another great opportunity to showcase our beautiful papers and stamp sets, like this Beautiful World and the bundled World Map Dies, and World of Good Specialty DSP!  This is going to be a go-to Suite when you need a masculine card, I am thinking!

I hope you like!

And I can help you get this stamp set – either now as a new demonstrator (yes, you can select pre-order goodies for your Starter Kit!!) or after 3 June (consider my Online Host Club!!).  Give me a shout!

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

As in the past, I’m offering a Designer Series Paper share and an Embellishment share with all sorts of fun new goodies!

New Online Host Club Beginning in June!

What is an Online Host Club?

Well – besides helping you to build your crafting tool chest a little at a time, a club also lets you get host benefits – without actually HOSTING a workshop!

It’s a six month gig – and it’s super easy!  Get all the deets – including all the benefits of being in one of my clubs – right here!  And then – get signed up.  There aren’t a lot of spaces available!

Finn Fan Fix


I give you…Wayne “training” Finn to leave his plate alone after lunch.

Step 1 – place plate on arm of chair…

…ensuring dog sees said plate.

Step 2 – using hand signals, tell dog “leave it”.

Step 3 – analyze dog’s reaction to “leave it” command.

Expert analysis of reaction….uhm….unprintable on a public blog.

Step 4 – assess efficacy of training session.

Expert analysis…epic FAIL. 😉

Better luck next time, Dad!
