Stampin’ Up! Beauty & Joy Thankful Card

Good morning, y’all! Yes – it’s Hawwmp Day.

But – more importantly – it’s September 11.

Please take some time today to REMEMBER.  We must never ever forget, my friends.  Take a few minutes of silence – particularly at the times the aircraft hit the buildings – 8:46….9:03….9:37…and 10:03.  Think back to where you were – think of the days afterward and the eerie silence of the skies.  Of watching the television in horror and…disbelief.  Of feeling insecure within the borders of our country.

Never.  Forget.

Okay – now.  On to less weighty subjects…

So – my card today is a fun one that uses the baby wipe technique!  I used it to create a Fall-themed Thank You card – or a Thanksgiving card – with the Beauty & Joy stamp set and some Brightly Gleaming Specialty DSP.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Come and Gather 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 Hop is a color challenge – and I’m excited to see what everyone comes up with –  I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop!

When I saw the color combo for the challenge – I immediately thought – Come to Gather DSP.  Then I spent a little time hemming and hawing and decisioning.  Like…for about 5 seconds.  WAS this the right choice??  Should I go with the unexpected??  And then I remembered back to my college days – the first answer you believe to be true…usually is.  So…I stuck with my original choice and added some beautiful leaves and sentiments from the Gather Together Bundle.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Mini Curvy Keepsake Sneak Peek Across the Seasons!

Mornin’, y’all!  Happy Sunday!

If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video – I appreciate you spending part of your weekend with me!  If not – but would like to watch the replay – here ’tis!

I showed off several projects last night that have a common denominator…the brand new Mini Curvy Keepsake Die and bundled Tiny Keepsakes Stamp Set – both coming soon in the 2019 Holiday Catalog!  Take a look-see:

On the video, we made the Come To Gather box…

…and the Snowman box…

I just showed the others!

The first is a Halloween box – using the Monster Bash DSP cut with the Mini Curvy Keepsake die – with a Spooktacular Bash tag!  You can see how to make this tag on the video, too! 🙂

Then we had one for a birthday – with a masculine bent!  I used the Come Sail Away DSP, Night of Navy/Sahara Sand Baker’s Twine, Sail Away Trinkets and a sentiment from the Itty Bitty Birthdays stamp set on this one.  The sentiment was cut with an Ornate Frames die (coming soon in the 2019 Holiday Catalog).  Y’all – this die set is SO handy to have!

Finally – I shared a little box that would be perfect for Mother’s Day, a Red Hat luncheon, Baby/Bridal Shower, church gathering – and probably tons more!  It uses the new Feels Like Frost Specialty DSP, the Leaf Punch, some flowers from the Lovely Flowers Die set, a sentiment from Piece of Cake, some Noble Peacock Rhinestones – and the heart label die from the Tiny Keepsake stamp set.

So – I hope you can see that this wonderful little Mini Curvy Keepsake Die is an awesome jumping off point for tons and gobs and oodles of fun projects!  And each box takes just one 6″ x 6″ piece of DSP or card stock, with no adhesive required for the box.  Make the box lickety-split and then…decorate to your heart’s content!  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Birds of a Feather Sneak Peek 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 Fall Frenzy!  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!

First off – it’s hard to think about Fall when it’s 100 outside.  Just sayin’… 😉

I decided another sneak peek from the 2019 Holiday Catalog was the way to go here – and I figured….why not go with Thanksgiving?  So…I pulled out the new Birds of a Feather stamp set (which covers Thanksgiving, Halloween, Christmas and Valentine’s Day!) and paired the little turkey with some Come To Gather DSP.  Take a look-see:

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

And the colors are from… Sunday Stamps! 🙂

I started with some feather-y Pretty Peacock paper from the Come To Gather DSP (coming in the new 2019 Holiday Catalog on 4 Sept) and matted it on Crushed Curry for the card front.

On a smaller rectangle of Very Vanilla, I stamped the little turkey from Birds of a Feather (avail 4 Sept) in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored – her (she’s my turkey and she can be a she if I want to her to be, so… 😉 ) – with my Light and Dark Crumb Cake, Pretty Peacock and Rococo Rose Stampin’ Blends.  Plus my Crushed Curry, Cajun Craze, Early Espresso and Pretty Posy Stampin’ Write Markers.

I stamped the gobbler again on a second Pretty Peacock design from the Come To Gather DSP and fussy cut just the apron.  Did the same on a Pretty Posy checkered piece of 2019-2021 In Color 6″ x 6″ DSP and cut out the apron pocket.  I adhered both with Liquid Glue.

I stamped the Birds of a Feather sentiment in Pretty Peacock in the bottom corner.  Then I matted it on Crushed Curry and adhered it to the card front.

I pulled out a Tags & Feathers Elements and colored the middle stripe of one with my Pretty Peacock Blend.  Then I adhered it to the panel with Liquid Glue.

A tiny Linen Thread bow and some Pretty Posy 2019-2021 Faceted Dots finished off the card front!

On the inside, I added the Birds of a Feather gobbler in the bottom corner of a Very Vanilla panel and colored her as I’d done on the front.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Crushed Curry mat and into my Cajun Craze card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got another gobbler on the front…

…and some more feathery Come To Gather DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I love this little image from Birds of a Feather – and it’s so cool that the single set covers so many occasions, don’t you think?  And the Come To Gather DSP is going to be a mainstay for all your Fall projects!  I hope you like!

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 Terry Lynns’s page or the Next Blog button to see what Akiko’s been up to!

Stampin’ Up! Seasonal Pleasant Pheasants Thanksgiving

Good morning!  Happy beginning-of-a-short-week!  And almost-Thanksgiving!  Soon after this post goes live, I’ll be on my way to Huntsville for a meeting or two today and tomorrow.  Then home to start cooking for T-day!  I have deviled eggs, mashed potatoes and a couple of desserts on my to-do list.  And we’re going to be smoking the turkey!  Fingers crossed on that one!

My card looks more complicated than it was – which is awesome, right?  Thanks to the pretty Toil & Trouble DSP, Woodland TIEF (and a little bleach), a few leaves from the Seasonal Layers Framelits and some sentiments from Pleasant Pheasants – all the tools were there.  Take a look-see:
