Good morning and happy Monday! Do you realize there’s only ONE week left to pick up those last minute Last Chance Sale goodies?? Yup – on 1 May – the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog AND the Jan – Apr 2023 Mini Catalog will be in the history books! So…don’t miss out!
My card today has nothing to do with EITHER of those catalogs! 😂😂😂. I’m looking ahead again to what comes NEXT! On 2 May, you’ll be able to pick up the new Fresh as a Daisy DSP – I’m actually fixin’ to buy my SECOND pack of it already!! Love it so much! You can also get the pretty new Seasonal Branches set. Take a look-see:
Good morning and happy happy Hawwmp Day! Hope the week is going well for you – and if you’re on either coast – hoping that your weather looks better today than it has so far this week! Yikes!
My card today goes back to the pretty…err…BEAUTIFUL!…Beautiful Thistle stamp set and dies! I’ve used it before – but this time I went with more traditional thistle colors! I paired it with a little bit of By The Bay 6″ x 6″ DSP. Take a look-see:
Good morning and happy Friday! Do you have some fun plans for the weekend?! We’re going out to dinner tonight with some friends, so I’m looking forward to that!
One of the new bundles in the Jan – Apr 2023 Mini Catalog is called the Beautiful Thistleset. And it’s gorgeous! For today’s card, I paired it with the Framed Florets die set and the pretty Fancy Flora 6″ x 6″ DSP. Take a look-see:
Good morning – and Happy Friday! By the time you read this – God willing and the creek don’t rise – we’ll be on our way to Florida! Yes. Yes, that’s right. We’re driving INTO the storm.
Cuz…we smart like that! 🤷♀️🤷♀️🤷♀️
I have faith it’s going to be okay – OnStage will be awesome and Dinney will be great next week!
The card I made yesterday on my Facebook Live is one that sort of developed while I was making it. I had no real plan in my head. But…I started with Soft Seedlings – and the Timeworn and Timber 3D Embossing Folders – so…it was destined to end up right in the middle of my wheelhouse! Take a look-see!
Good Monday morning, y’all! It’s Monday again and I’m at T-2 days until Amy arrives! Whoo-hoo! And T-3 before we head to the land of beignets! And coffee made with nuts. Hmmm. One is a donut – good. The other is coffee. From nuts. Chicory, to be more specific. I am trying to withhold judgment. But….coffee. From…nuts. 🤷♀️🤷♀️🤷♀️ I hope that in a few days I’ll be shaking my head in amusement at myself and buying bags to bring home in the People Mover. One of the many advantages of driving vs flying!
I’ve got a quick and easy – and suitable for ANYONE! – card for you today. It uses one of my fave bundles from the Jul – Dec 2022 Mini – the Brightest Beauty set with the bundled Golden Beauty Dies. And…the amazingly wunnermus Leaf Fall 3D Embossing Folder. All in earthy neutrals. Take a look-see:
Good morning, y’all! It’s Thursday – which means it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! We’ve got a beautiful color challenge to work with 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!
When I saw the colors this week I knew right away that I was going to pull out the Nature’s Prints bundle and the Sun Prints DSP. And so…I did! 🙂 Take a look-see:
And here’s the color challenge! I used all but the Night of Navy! 😎
I started using the white Pearlized Enamel Effects to “color” a Textural Element. I used a little extra “paint” at the ends where the berries are, to create a more rounded appearance. I set the element aside to dry while I worked on the rest of the card!
Next up, I stamped the fern image from the Nature’s Bundle stamp set in Starry Sky ink all over a Starry Sky panel. Then I embossed the panel in the cool Fern 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to a Gray Granite mat for the card front.
I used the next-to-largest square Stylish Shapes die to cut a piece of plain Lovely Layers 3 3/4″ x 5″ Vellum and then adhered it to the card front with Glue Dots.
On a piece of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the Nature’s Prints fern in Starry Sky and the wildflower leaves in Pacific Point. Then I cut them both out with their matching dies in the bundled Natural Prints die set.
I used the leaves dies in the Natural Prints die set to cut out three long leaves from Gray Granite cardstock, and five smaller leaves from Starry Sky 2022-2024 In Color Glimmer Paper.
I double checked that the Pearlized Enamel Paint was dry on the Textural Elementand started creating the collage.
I adhered all the die cuts and the Textural Element to the card front with Liquid Glue.
With everything in place, I used a strip of Stampin’ Seal + to adhere a loop-de-doop of Gray Granite 1/4″ Shimmer Ribbon.
I stamped the Nature’s Prints sentiment in Starry Sky on a piece of Basic White and cut it out with the third-from-smallest Stylish Shapes die.
I popped the sentiment onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals, adhered some Starry Sky 2022-2024 In Color Matte Dots and the card front was done!
On the inside, I stamped a second sentiment from Nature’s Prints in Starry Sky on a piece of Basic White. Then, in stamped-off-once Pacific Point, I stamped the Nature’s Prints frond. I stamped it upside down – and have been…re-thinking that design choice since I made the card! 🤷♀️🤷♀️🤷♀️ If you make this card – stamp it upside right or downside wrong, whichever you prefer! 🙂 I added a Starry Sky 2022-2024 In Color Matte Dot next to the sentiment
I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Gray Granite mat and into my Thick Basic White card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.
My Basic White Medium Envelope got the Pacific Point frond a few times on the front…
…and a little of the Sun Prints DSP on the envelope flap.
Et Voila! Boy – I’ve been so caught up in new goodies from the Jul – Dec 2022 Mini that I’d sort of lost track of this beautiful Nature’s Printsstamp set and bundled Natural Prints dies. I love how the elements come together and they’re pretty amazing with the Fern 3D Embossing Folder, don’t you think?!?
I hope you like!

Today’s card is another W fold – the first one I did a couple week back was in horizontal/landscape orientation – this one is in vertical/portrait mode. I used the new and amazing Nature’s Prints Bundle and Pretty Prints DSP to create this one. Take a look-see:
Good morning, y’all and happy Friday! We’re on the cusp of the weekend and I hope you’re making plans to do something fun! We’re building a new garden shed so that’s for sure on the list! And…tending the garden. And – I’ll be doing a little more craft-room tidying. So…it’ll be Monday before we know it!
My card today is a fun fold – and it’s SO easy – and it REALLY showcases one of the most beautiful papers I’ve seen in a long time – and we’ve had heaps and tons of gorgeous papers, haven’t we? This one is called Hues of Happiness and it’ll be available on 3 May with the new 2022-2024 Annual Catalog. And – for the art and sentiments, I tapped the Flowering Rain Boots bundle from the Jan – Jun 2022 Mini Catalog. Take a look-see:
Good morning again! I hope your week got off to a great start – we had a fun Zoom The Craftroom yesterday! Lots of us on and we were crafting and yakking and it was great. A really nice kick off for the week!
My card today is another Sneak Peek. I used the so-sweet Fresh Cut Flowers stamp set, some gorgeous Pretty Prints DSP AND the amazeballs Stylish Shapesdies. All of THESE you’ll have to wait to get until the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog goes live on 3 May (unless you join the team right now – just sayin’!) The final element is the Quiet Meadow set – which you can get RIGHT NOW. AND in the new catalog! Yep – this pretty set is carrying over – WHOOHOO! Take a look-see:
