Stampin’ Up! Painted Harvest Vintage Leaves

Well, it’s Friday, y’all!  We made it!  Hope you’re ready for a fun weekend.  I’ve got my traditional pre-trip hair cut for tomorrow and then….if nothing changes….I head to the airport on Sunday.  

Bleh.

Let me repeat….B. L. E. H.

But – for now…let’s take a look at the card I made on Thursday as my end-of-day stress reliever!  I used one of my all-time favorite sets – the Vintage Leaves and added a Painted Harvest sentiment.  Take a look-see:

This layout was inspired by the sketch challenge at the Paper Craft Crew.  

It also plays nicely with the challenge from The Paper Players.

I made the card front from a piece of Very Vanilla card stock.  Using the little splotches image from the Timeless Textures stamp set, I stamped around in the top corner with Crumb Cake ink.  Then I ran the panel thru the Big Shot in my Pinewood Planks Dynamic TIEF.

With my sponge, I lightly burnished the raised wood grain with Cajun Craze.  Tip – use your – previously inked – dry sponge.  Don’t add any more ink.  It makes it easier to stay on top of the grain.  I also flicked the edges of the panel.

The panel is matted on a piece of Pumpkin Pie card stock.

I adhered a length of 5/8″ Burlap Ribbon down the side with some liquid Glue.  Then I made leaves!

This is the stained glass technique.  First I stamped two smaller flowers on a piece of Vellum card stock in Early Espresso.

And let them dry.  It takes a while, folks.  Be patient.  Or…give them a little hit with your Heat Tool!

While those dried, I rubbed another piece of Vellum card stock with my Embossing Buddy and stamped the large leaf in Versamark, sprinkled it with Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heated it up.

I colored the leaves by turning them over – and coloring the back! – with my Pumpkin Pie, Crushed Curry and Cajun Craze Stampin’ Write Markers.  I used the darker colors to highlight the veins in the leaves and then filled them in with the lighter colors.  When that was dry…I cut them out with the matching dies in the Leaflets Frameltis.

I curled the leaves lightly with a stylus then used Dimensionals behind the large leaf (and a little Liquid Glue on the stem) to adhere it to the card front.  Then I added the smaller leaves over top – with just a small line of Liquid Glue down the center and the stem.

The sentiment, from Painted Harvest, is stamped on Very Vanilla in Cajun Craze ink.  Then I tore around the sentiment and flicked the torn edges with a Crumb Cake sponge.  I also crumpled up the sentiment a couple of times to vintage-ize it a little and then popped it over the leaves with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The final pieces are a Linen Thread bow (make multiple loops and tie a thread around the middle) and a few Pumpkin Pie Enamel Shapes.

On the inside, I added a couple of the smaller leaves in Early Espresso and colored them with my Crushed Curry and Pumpkin Pie markers.  I also added some Timeless Textures Crumb Cake spotches and flicked the edges with the Cajun Craze sponge.

I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Pumpkin Pie 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 more Vintage Leaves and Timeless Textures on the front…

…and I embossed the flap in the Pinewood Planks Dynamic TIEF and burnished it with the Cajun Craze sponge.

Et Voila!  Some Vintage Leaves with an assist from Painted Harvest.  And, of course, the wonderful Pinewood Planks Dynamic TIEF!  All with some subtle color from the stained glass technique on Vellum.  Hope you like! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Painted Harvest Gather Together

Good mornin’, y’all!  Hope this finds you well – and safe (particularly if you’re in the path of Harvey and dealing with the ongoing havoc he wrought – and is wreaking!).

Folks are snapping up my Painted Autumn bundles, but today I want to give the rest of you a little nudge-nudge.  So I made a card to help convince you that you need one of these bundles! I’ll just let the Painted Harvest stamp set, Leaf Punch and Painted Autumn DSP do the persuading, shall I?  Take a look-see:

Painted Harvest Gather Together - Stamps-N-Lingers 4

While I took all the color palette inspiration from the Suite itself, I let the fine folks at CAS(E) This Sketch lend me an assist on the layout.

Screen Shot 2017-08-28 at 12.30.46

I started with some Crumb Cake card stock and then inked up the flower images in the Painted Harvest stamp set, also in Crumb Cake.  I stamped the images – both of them, remember, this is two step! – all across the panel.  When I stamped the first image (the less-defined, larger flower), I stamped it multiple times for each flower, rotating it a little with each stamp.

Painted Harvest Gather Together - Stamps-N-Lingers 1I added the little three-dot image a couple of times in the middle – sunflower seeds, I’m betting! – and then double matted the panel.  First on an Early Espresso mat and then on Garden Green.

My middle panel is a piece of the Painted Autumn DSP, matted on Early Espresso and Garden Green, then Fast Fuse’d to the card front.

Painted Harvest Gather Together - Stamps-N-Lingers 2

I adhered a short strip of 5/8″ Burlap Ribbon to the middle panel with Liquid Glue.  

For the leaves, I stamped the leaf images (both of them) in Garden Green on Garden Green card stock, punched them out with the Leaf Punch, and creased each leaf.  Then I adhered them to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I fussy cut a couple of flowers from the Painted Autumn DSP and adhered the larger one with Liquid Glue.  The smaller flower I popped on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Painted Harvest Gather Together - Stamps-N-Lingers 3

The sentiment, from Painted Harvest, is stamped in Early Espresso on Crumb Cake card stock.  I inked and stamped the phrases and the ampersand separately, then snipped them out.  The edges are colored with my Early Espresso Stampin’ Write Marker.  Then I adhered them to the flowers with Liquid Glue.

Painted Harvest Gather Together - Stamps-N-Lingers 8

I made a multi-loop bow with Linen Thread and adhered it to the card front with a Glue Dot, then tied a smaller bow from Crushed Curry Solid Baker’s Twine and adhered it over the Linen Thread Bow.  And that was it for the card front.

On the inside, I stamped another Painted Harvest flower using Crushed Curry, on a Very Vanilla panel.  I stamped the first image several times, rotating it for each stamp.  Then I came back and repeated it with the second image – again multiple times, and rotating the stamp.  The middle is stamped in Crumb Cake – I did it twice, rotating between stamps.  Then I added “sunflower seeds” with the three-dot image in Crumb Cake.

Painted Harvest Gather Together - Stamps-N-Lingers 6

I matted the panel on Early Espresso and Garden Green and then Fast Fuse’d it into my Thick Very Vanilla card base, added the card front with more Fast Fuse, and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got another Painted Harvest flower in Crushed Curry and Crumb Cake on the front…

Painted Harvest Gather Together - Stamps-N-Lingers 7

…and some more of the Painted Autumn DSP on the envelope flap.

Painted Harvest Gather Together - Stamps-N-Lingers 8

Et Voila!  I love this Suite so much – that stamped flower is exquisite and the designer paper complements it perfectly.  It can be fresh and bright and summery or it can go vintage-antique-y.  So many possibilities!  I hope you like.

Read on for all the details in the bundles – and grab the one you need before these special prices go away on Thursday afternoon!!

Finn-Fan Fix  

I mentioned on my video the other night that Finn and I had gone over for a playdate with his sister, Scout.

He’d go do that every day, if he could.  Or…twelve times a day!

They’d both end up pretty danged fit if he did.  And have no excess energy for shenanigans!

Y’all – they must have run 25 miles.  In a circle around the lawn chairs we were all sitting in.  If they weren’t running, they were wrestling…

Every once in a while, they’d flop on the ground for a minute or two to catch their breath.

IMG_9610

And at one point, Finn went to the big water bowl to take a self-imposed timeout.  A little guy-time.  Contemplate Maybelle-the-cow and get his breath back.  And have a little sip of water.  

IMG_9609

Possibly ambush his sister if she decided she needed a drink, too.

They had a bang-up good time!! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Vintage Leaves Blessed by Paisleys & Posies

Happy Saturday, y’all!  I had a bit of an awakening on Friday.  I realized I’m pretty behind on making Thanksgiving cards.  I’ve got buckets and tons of Christmas Cards, and a pretty hefty pile of Halloween Cards, but….I’m short Thanksgiving Cards.  So…hang on to your hats – I’m in make-up mode!

One little Finn update.  Went to the vet today to get weighed (him – not me!!) so we could get the right sized Heartworm medicine.  You may remember – back when Finn first came to live with us….

finn-in-the-water
…he was already a big boy at 34 pounds.  Well, just a month later at almost 6 months old (and a week away from his tutoring 😦 )…he’s 42 pounds!  He’s a weed!

And I need to show you a cute picture….

finn-helping-put-away-the-silver
That’s him plopped between me and the cabinet while I was unloading silver from the dishwasher.  Not earth shattering – it just made me chuckle! 🙂

My card for today is for Thanksgiving.

About time, Mary!

I used the Paisleys & Posies stamp set – added some Copper-embossed Vintage Leaves – and backed it all up with Petals & Paisleys DSP.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Basket of Wishes, Paisleys and Butterflies

Before I get going, I was thrilled to learn the other day that my card from Sunday was a winner at the Stamps Ink Paper challenge!  I’m very grateful to the good folks over there for selecting my card – there were a lot of really great entries, so this is a real honor!  If you want to see this card, check it out right here.  And here’s a link to the blogpost where they announced the winners – do take a minute to check them all out! 🙂


Happy Hawmmp Day, y’all!  Hope your week is going well and that the results of yesterday’s election didn’t send you into a deep funk!  If it did – pull out your card making supplies and make something pretty.  It’s a sure-fire way to distract your mind!

Finn doesn’t give a rat’s patootty about the election.  Just isn’t important to him.  What he cares about these days is…chipmunks.  He thinks they’re self-propelled furry toys placed on the planet for his amusement.  I am sad to report that he actually caught one the other day.  The encounter didn’t go well for the chippy.  Which makes me sad.  Cuz I like the little buggers.  But….he’s a dog.  High on the food chain.  Predator.  Chippy’s are….prey.

So – I can’t really be mad at him.  A bit disappointed?  Yes.  In my eyes, he was just a happy little curly-haired soul bouncing thru life.  What a shock to discover that there’s still “dog” under all that cuteness! 🙂

On the other hand, we’ve had a couple of good close-encounters with the cats.  He’s stood in front of them (on the leash!) while they’re laying on their bed and they didn’t run.  And he didn’t bounce!  So everyone was happy.  I think his encounter with the “beast-cat” at his playdate helped him a lot!

Okay – on to the card for today!  I went completely and totally away from Christmas for this one.  And I pulled out some older stamp sets and thinlits, combining them with a sentiment from the Basket of Wishes stamp set and one from Paisleys & Posies.  Take a look-see:

basket-of-wishes-paisleys-and-butterflies-4-stamps-n-lingers

My design was inspired by the Mojo Monday sketch for this week:

mm-473-sketch

And the colors and theme are from the latest Stamp Ink Paper challenge.

sip-73-sketch
Okay – this one wasn’t difficult, but there are a few steps, so bear with me.

Please don’t bare with me.  That just ain’t fittin’! 😉

To begin, I used a piece of Marina Mist card stock and stamped a sentiment from Basket of Wishes (“Thinking of You”) in Marina Mist ink all over the panel, then I matted it on a piece of Soft Sky card stock.  Then I cut a piece of Vellum card stock the same size as the card front and embossed it in the Fluttering TIEF.  To tone it down a bit, I sponged the Vellum with Marina Mist ink.

basket-of-wishes-paisleys-and-butterflies-2-stamps-n-lingers
My main sentiment, also from Basket of Wishes, is stamped in Wisteria Wonder on Whisper White, cut with an oval die from the Ovals Layering Framelits, and matted on a scalloped edge oval in Soft Sky.

The art work consists of a couple of images from the Butterfly Basics stamp set.  I stamped the flower in Basic Gray Archival Ink on a Whisper White square.  Then I colored it with my Aqua Pen.

Now – this past weekend at OnStage, I learned something that y’all may already know, but I didn’t.  Put 70% Rubbing Alcohol in your Aqua Painter!  It’s a tad thicker than water, and it really does a great job coloring – much smoother and easier to blend than water.  So that’s what I did!

basket-of-wishes-paisleys-and-butterflies-3-stamps-n-lingers
I colored the flower with Pink Pirouette (picking the ink up from the lid of the ink pad) and shaded it with Blushing Bride.  Then I used Mint Macaron for the stem.  I inked up the honeycomb image from Butterfly Basics in Marina Mist and stamped it off once before stamping it all around the flower.  Finally, I matted the square on a scalloped-edge Soft Sky mat.

Another demonstration we saw at the WCMD event this weekend was one on Textures and Layering.  I was really impressed by Kimberly Van Diepen’s presentation, so I tried to incorporate some elements she showed us.  I tore a piece of a Delicate White Doily and used Liquid Glue to adhere it to the back of my square.

basket-of-wishes-paisleys-and-butterflies-1-stamps-n-lingers
Then I used a Glue Dot to adhere a few loops of Silver Metallic Thread to the back of the square.

At this point, I dry fit the oval and the square.  Then I adhered the Vellum panel I made earlier to the card front, using Liquid Glue under the spots where I planned to put my other elements.

Next, I used some Silver 5/8″ Satin Ribbon and some Pool Party 3/8″ Stitched Satin Ribbon and adhered them across the card front for the horizontal element of the sketch.  Finally, I adhered the art square over all that with Liquid Glue.

Still with me?? 🙂

My butterflies come from two spots.  I punched two Marina Mist little guys from Subtles Designer Series Paper with the Bitty Butterfly punch.  The large butterfly was stamped with Watercolor Wings, using Marina Mist and Wisteria Wonder ink – this is a 3-step stamp.  Then I cut it with the matching die from Bold Butterfly Framelits – and I also cut a second butterfly in Silver Foil.  I adhered the two layers together with Liquid Glue and then adhered it and the two Bitty Butterflies to the card.  Then I gave them all some Pearl Basic Jewel bodies.

basket-of-wishes-paisleys-and-butterflies-8-stamps-n-lingers
I adhered the sentiment oval with Liquid Glue, then added a couple of leaves – cut with the little dies in Swirly Scribbles from Silver Foil, and a Petite Petals flower punched from Mint Macaron Designer Series Paper and embellished with a Soft Sky heart Enamel Shape.

And that was it for the card front!

Whew! 🙂

On the inside, I added a sentiment from Paisleys & Posies in Wisteria Wonder on a Whisper White panel.  Then I added some stamped-off-once Marina Mist butterflies from Butterfly Basics.

basket-of-wishes-paisleys-and-butterflies-5-stamps-n-lingers
I SNAILd it to a Soft Sky mat and into a Marina Mist card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals, and the card was done!

The front of my Whisper White Medium Envelope got more stamped-off-once Marina Mist Butterfly Basics butterflies…

basket-of-wishes-paisleys-and-butterflies-6-stamps-n-lingers
…and an envelope flap with more of the Marina Mist Designer Series Paper.

basket-of-wishes-paisleys-and-butterflies-7-stamps-n-lingers
Et Voila!  Nothing difficult or confusing – just of a lot of steps.  But, sometimes, it just takes some extra effort (and a bunch of tools!!) to get a card how you want it, right?  Hope you like – and think it was worth the time! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Leaflets, Petals, Paisleys & Posies….Oh My!

Happy Sunday, y’all!  I hope that your weekend is going well – maybe getting ready for the onslaught of little ghoulies and ghosties on Monday night?  We don’t get trick or treaters here – which I really kind of miss.  I enjoyed them coming by way back “in the day” when we lived in a neighborhood – our 1/3 mile driveway with a gate sort of puts kids off!  Although it would make for a heck of a Haunted Hay Ride! 🙂

I also hope you’re getting all ready to buy some Designer Paper and take advantage of my Ordering Special – the sale and the special both go away tomorrow night!  Read on down for the details….

We had a great day on Saturday – took Finn over for another playdate with Scout.  He had so much fun with her and the other dogs!  And he thinks Scout is the bees knees.

Why do people say bees knees?  I don’t even think bees have knees and if they do, why would they be any better than anyone else’s knees?  Why not “the elephant’s knees”?  Or…the “anteater’s knees”?  Things that make you say….hmmmmm…

But I digress.  Finn loves Scout and she thinks he’s pretty cool, too!

finn-and-scout
After we got some lunch, we took him with us to get feed.  First time at the Tractor Supply store – and he had a great time!  Met folks who petted him.  Sat down and politely accepted the treat the cashier gave him.  Sniffed every flavor of dog food and treats that were on the bottom shelves.

And got two new toys!!  Cuz….what’s the fun of going to the store if you don’t get a new toy? Or two!?

He’s an awfully good boy!

So, we all had a big day and he’s sleeping now while I share my card with you.  If you remember a couple weeks back I shared the October Paper Pumpkin cards….

…and said I was going to make another shaker card using my leftover sequins from the kit and some Vintage Leaves.  Well, today’s the day!  I used the Leaflets Framelits and the sentiment from Paisleys & Posies.  And added a little Petals & Paisleys DSP….and the Petal Burst TIEF.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Textured Basket of Wishes!

Good morning, y’all – happy Sunday!  Today’s going to be fun – we’ve got our Amy’s Inkin’ Krew “business” meeting!  I put it in quotes, cuz – while we do take care of some business, we also eat our lunch and make a few projects.  And it’s really fun to get to be with some of our fellow demonstrators who are lucky enough to be in Amy Koenders’ downline!  I’m always glad when I get to be home when the “in person” meetings are being held!

Wayne made it safely home, a smidge before I got the house as “done” as I’d planned, but…it’s all good!  Good to have him back in the house – even if there’s the usual adjustment period.  Dinner on a schedule, sharing the remote, socks on the coffee table.  Not the ones with his feet in them – the ones he takes off at the end of the day!  It’s his version of dropping his underwear on the floor – which he doesn’t do! LOL.  But, as I said, it’s good to have him home!  I know his mom is missing having him there with her in the rehab center. 😦

My card for today is a bit of an homage to Fall – cuz I know it’s going to get here soon!  Weather folks on tv say Wednesday.

So…you know that’s gonna happen, right? 😉

I used the pretty Basket of Wishes stamp set from the Holiday catalog and one of my favorite texture sets – Touches of Texture – from the Annual Catalog.  Take a look-see:

textures-and-basket-of-wishes-4-stamps-n-lingers
This one plays along with two challenges.  The first is the Viva La Verve sketch challenge – the second challenge for September:

vlvsep2016-sketch
And I also used a Photo Week challenge from Just Us Girls.  Challenge #362:

jugs-362-sketch
I started with a piece of Crumb Cake card stock, which I tore all around the edges.  Then I used the big splattering of tiny dots image from Touches of Texture, stamping it all over in Crumb Cake ink.  Sometimes full strength and sometimes stamping a second time without re-inking.  Then I added the flower image, all over (leaving a blank spot for my sentiment) in Delightful Dijon.

textures-and-basket-of-wishes-1-stamps-n-lingers
I cut a piece of 5/8″ Burlap Ribbon – the same length as the card – and used some Multi-Purpose Liquid Glue to adhere it to the panel.

The sentiment, from Basket of Wishes, I stamped in the corner in Early Espresso.

For my art, I matted a small piece of Serene Scenery DSP to a Delightful Dijon mat and popped it over the ribbon with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I cut two pieces with the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits – one in Crumb Cake and one in Cajun Craze.  To give them some texture, I used the same dots image from Touches of Texture and stamped all over the die cuts in Early Espresso ink.  Then I used Liquid Glue to adhere them to the card.

textures-and-basket-of-wishes-2-stamps-n-lingers
The focal art is from Basket of Wishes.  I stamped the basket in Crumb Cake ink on Very Vanilla, then added the flower bunch in Soft Suede.  I colored the image with my Clear Wink of Stella brush – using Soft Suede on the basket, and Crushed Curry, Chocolate Chip, Cajun Craze, and Old Olive on the flowers.  Then I cut it out using a die from the Circles Layering Framelits.

I got the bright idea to make the circle look a little like a sunflower.  So…I punched a flower with my Flower Medallion Punch from a piece of Delightful Dijon.  Then I made some stitches all around the edge of the flower with my Chocolate Chip Stampin’ Write Marker.  

I added the circle with some Liquid Glue – and then it seemed like a good idea to add some stitches to that as well, so I did!

textures-and-basket-of-wishes-8-stamps-n-lingers
The final touch – see him up there? – is a little buzz-bee from the….Jar of Love stamp set!  I stamped him with Early Espresso ink on some Vellum card stock, adding some Crushed Curry to his body with my marker and cut him with his little die in the Everyday Jars Framelit set.  Then I used my Fine-Tip Glue Pen to add him to the basket – and the card front was done!

It’s mounted a little differently than usual – I SNAILd a panel of Delightful Dijon to my Crumb Cake card base – then I popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

textures-and-basket-of-wishes-3-stamps-n-lingers
On the inside, I tore the edges of another piece of Crumb Cake card stock.  Then I stamped around the edges with the Touches of Texture in Crumb Cake.  In the middle, I stamped the flower image, in Delightful Dijon – stamping off twice before I stamped the card.  

Then I SNAILd it to a Delightful Dijon mat and into my Crumb Cake card base.  And that was it!

textures-and-basket-of-wishes-5-stamps-n-lingers
On my Crumb Cake Medium Envelope, I stamped more of the Touches of Texture flower in Delightful Dijon on the front…

textures-and-basket-of-wishes-6-stamps-n-lingers
…and then I borrowed an idea from my friend and downline Beth Hooper (check her card out here!), and added the little flower image from Basket of Wishes to the envelope flap.

textures-and-basket-of-wishes-7-stamps-n-lingers
Et Voila!  This one has a lot going on, but I think it works!  I love Touches of Texture for all the possibilities it gives you.  And, of course, Basket of Wishes is just flat beautiful! Hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Totally Suite Paisley Trees for the Happy Stampers Blog Hop

HappyStampersBlogPostBanner-2
Mornin’, y’all –  welcome to another edition of the Happy Stampers Blog Hop. If you’re following along, you’ll know this is a color challenge week.  We changed some things up a bit, though – now you may see us use a sketch or design challenge to help us get our creative juices flowing.  Yeah!  I’m excited to see what everyone did with these pretty colors this week.  Hope you are, too, and that you’ll check out all the projects from the ladies-who-hop!

Here’s our color scheme…perfect for the first official day of Fall, don’t you think??

14067473_10210503222365126_1412953050962586921_n
Before I get into my card – let me share the news.  I know many of you probably had a sleepless night, worrying about whether I hurt myself getting on my hands and knees to search for my AWOL spider from the Jar of Haunts stamp set.  And if that wasn’t concerning you – you were anxious about whether I found him – or vacuumed him up!

Well….I found him! 🙂

I searched thru all my scrap paper.  Used a flashlight to peer around under the desk.  Emptied the trash cans – searching (a little bit!) thru the papers in them to see if he was there.  No joy.  I slumped back in despair, knowing I had no choice but to pull up my big girl panties and get down and run my hand all over the floor, hoping I’d feel him.  As I gazed dejectedly down at said floor (have I mentioned I need to vacuum?!?), I noticed an oddly shaped scrap of Real Red card stock.

It looked….blurry…on one end.

Could it….?  Could it possibly be??

Not holding out much hope, I reached down and picked up the scrap.

And, by golly – there he was!!  Clinging stubbornly to that scrap of card stock.  I know he was hoping I’d find him – he’d lost his way – and not vacuum him up!

There was much singing and rejoicing!  And while he was singing and bouncing around,  I gave him a stern talking to for scaring me and a time out.  In his stamp case.  If he thinks I’m just going to jump up and stamp his little image on something anytime soon…well, he’s just got another think coming to him! 😉

So – what did I do with these colors for today?  Well, I didn’t stamp a spider, that’s for darned sure!  I pulled out the Suite Seasons stamp set, which is just chock-a-block full of great sentiments for the season.  I suppose that’s why it’s called that…  I added some trees from Totally Trees and dressed it all up with beautiful Petals & Paisleys DSP.  Take a look-see:

totally-suite-paisley-trees-4-stamps-n-lingers
I used this week’s Mojo Monday sketch challenge to help me with my design.  Mojo Monday #466:

mm-466-sketch
I started by SNAILing a piece of Mint Macaron design-paper from the Petals & Paisleys DSP to a Rich Razzleberry mat.  For the small rectangle on the left, I SNAILd the copper-foil-embossed paper – also from Petals & Paisleys – to a second Rich Razzleberrry mat.  And SNAILd that to my card front.

The art began with the sentiment from Suite Seasons.  I inked the image with Versamark, then with my Delightful Dijon ink, stamped it on a Very Vanilla square, and sprinkled it with Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  Then I heated it up – resulting in a shiny, embossed, Delightful Dijon sentiment!

totally-suite-paisley-trees-1-stamps-n-lingers
My trees, from Totally Trees, are stamped three times in Versamark ink, sprinkled with Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder, and heated.  Then I colored the leaves with my Rich Razzleberry, Mint Macaron and Delightful Dijon Stampin’ Write Markers.  I SNAILd the panel to a Rich Razzleberry Mat and then to the card front.

My ribbons are from the 3/8″ Ribbon Trio Pack in the Holiday Catalog in Rich Razzleberry and Delightful Dijon.  I snipped little banner ends and then wrapped them over the top of the card, securing the end with scotch tape.  I used a little line of Multi-Purpose Liquid Glue to stick the ribbons down on the card.

totally-suite-paisley-trees-2-stamps-n-lingers
For the embellishment, I cut a little shape from Copper Foil with my Paisleys Thinlits and adhered it with a little Liquid Glue.  Using a Glue Dot, I added a small Classy Designer Button.  I finished it off with a little bow that I’d tied with a length of Linen Thread and two lengths of Copper Metallic Thread, adhering that with a Glue Dot, too.  And that was it for the card front! 🙂

totally-suite-paisley-trees-8-stamps-n-lingers
On the inside, I SNAILd a Very Vanilla panel to a Rich Razzleberry mat.  Then I used a small image from the Paisleys & Posies stamp set and – stamping off once first – ran it up the side of the panel in Delightful Dijon.

totally-suite-paisley-trees-5-stamps-n-lingers
I SNAILd it into my Delightful Dijon card base, added the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals, and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got a line of stamped-off-once Paisleys & Posies images across the front…

totally-suite-paisley-trees-6-stamps-n-lingers
…and some more of the Petals & Paisleys DSP on the envelope flap!

Et Voila!  This pretty Thanksgiving-worthy card holds so many of my favorite things from the Holiday Catalog!  And it sure was easy to put together, too!  Hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Jar of Haunts Basket of Wishes

I’ve lost a spider.

He’s just a tiny little thing.

Black.

The requisite number of legs.

Clear around the edges.

About the size of my pinky fingernail.

Know what I’m talking about?

You might guess it – it’s one of my favorite images in the Holiday Catalog.

Jar of Haunts Happy Halloween 5 - Stamps-N-Lingers

As I was making today’s card, I pulled out the Jar of Haunts stamp set.  Started stamping my favorite pumpkin image.  Stamp stamp sta….

Hey!

Wha…..?  Where….?

Where’s the spider?

I searched the whole stamp case.  Looked under the piles of scrap paper on my desk.  Rolled back a little and peered under my desk.  

Nuthin’.  Nada.

Tomorrow I’m going to take a flashlight and get on my hands and knees – I have to prepare ahead for this, it’s no longer the easy maneuver it was a few years ago – and see if I can find him.  Cuz….soon I have to run the vacuum.  Like – soon.  And it will definitely find him if he’s down there.  And then he’ll be lost in the vacuum vortex with some real spiders who had a bad day.

Keep your fingers crossed, please.  I want him BACK!!! No. I neeeed him back – I don’t know if I can make it thru the Halloween season without him. 😦

Let’s take a look at the card I was making when I realized that the spider had flown the web.  As I already mentioned, it uses the Jar of Haunts stamp set and a sentiment from the Basket of Wishes set.  And a few little touches from….Glamper Greetings.  Sounds like a bit of a mishmash, huh?  Well, see what you think.  Take a look-see:

jar-of-haunts-basket-of-wishes-4-stamps-n-lingers
I let two sketch challenges drive this one – the first is the design.  Hand Stamped Sentiments #247 is where this one came from:

hss-247-sketch
And I played with a theme challenge from The Paper Players.  PP313 is why there’s pumpkins and pies on my card!

pp-313-sketch
I started by stamping the two little images from Glamper Greetings all over a Pumpkin Pie panel in Pumpkin Pie ink and Tangerine Tango.  

Then I SNAILd it to a Silver Foil mat.  Over that, I added a piece of Halloween Night DSP, SNAILd in Silver Foil.

jar-of-haunts-basket-of-wishes-3-stamps-n-lingers
The pumpkins, from my spider-less Jar of Haunts set, are stamped in Tangerine Tango on Very Vanilla.  Then I used ink from the lid of my Pumpkin Pie ink pad and colored them in, using my old Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush.  I added some extra shading with more Tangerine Tango.

The stems are stamped in Soft Suede – then I outlined the stem portion in Early Espresso with my Stampin’ Write Marker and the leaves in Always Artichoke.  I used the Clear Wink to color the leaves with Old Olive – but letting the Pumpkin Pie show thru as well (which made a fall leaf color).  Then I colored the stems in with Soft Suede, still using the Clear Wink Glitter Brush.

jar-of-haunts-basket-of-wishes-8-stamps-n-lingers
I fussy cut the three pumpkins and used Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop them onto the card front.

For my sentiment, I used the nice one from Basket of Wishes – individually inking the three phrases with my Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker, and covering the other phrases with Sticky Note tape.  I inked the middle image first – then added a Glamper Greeting Pumpkin Pie pie on either side.  Then I stamped the first and last phrase, and added a pie on either side!

I cut it down to size, and snipped little banners on the ends.  In lieu of another mat, I edged the banner with my Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Write Marker.  Then I used Multi-Purpose Liquid Glue to adhere it over the pumpkins.  And that did it for the card front!

jar-of-haunts-basket-of-wishes-2-stamps-n-lingers
On the inside, I added a row of Glamper Greetings goodies across the bottom of a Very Vanilla panel – pies in…Pumpkin Pie and Jack O’Lanterns in Tangerine Tango.

jar-of-haunts-basket-of-wishes-6-stamps-n-lingers
I SNAILd the panel on a Silver Foil mat and into my Basic Black card base, added the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals, and the card was done!

My Medium Very Vanilla Envelope got more of the same Glamper Greetings images across the bottom….

jar-of-haunts-basket-of-wishes-5-stamps-n-lingers
…and more of the same on the envelope flap.

jar-of-haunts-basket-of-wishes-7-stamps-n-lingers
Et Voila!  A little Halloween-ish, a little Fall-ish…kind of a sweet little card for Thanksgiving, I think.  Hope you like! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Blessed with Petals, Paisleys and Posies

Good cusp-of-the-weekend, y’all!  Yes, it’s that time again – another weekend looms long and luxurious ahead of us!  If we could just keep from sliding into the “weekend time warp”, we’d be doing good, huh?  As it is, we’ll blink and you’ll be reading my Monday morning Salutations.

Maybe it’ll be Sassy…. 😉

Get it?

For my card today, I needed a quick one, cuz I was pretty much covered up on Thursday between my real job and cutting up share goodies!  So, when I find myself in that position, I like to go to a pretty DSP and kind of let it do all the work for me.  For this one, I pulled out the beautiful Copper and Night of Navy paper in the  Petals & Paisleys Specialty DSP.  I also called upon the matching stamp set – Paisleys & Posies.  Take a look-see:
