Stampin’ Up! Touch of Ink Happy Thoughts Fun Fold with Video Tutorial

Good morning! And happy Sunday!  I hope you’re having a great weekend – maybe warming up a bit?  We had a gorgeous day yesterday and it’s looking to be the same today.  Chilly, yes – but bright and beautiful!

If you were able to spend some of your weekend with me on my Facebook Live video last night, I appreciate it!  If not, here’s the replay on YouTube!

I was playing with some of the sweet FREE goodies from the 2021 Sale-A-Bration catalog…Touch of Ink (a $100-level freebie) and one of my favorite papers – the Flower & Field DSP (a $50-level choice) and decided to make a fun fold that one of my team members had shared.  He saw it on Connie Stewart’s video and I just went for it!  I added a perfect sentiment from the Happy Thoughts stamp set, too.  Take a look-see:

I decided that a butterfly is an animal….ish…so,  played along with the theme challenge at the Global Design Project!

I created the pop-up fun-fold part of the card using Flirty Flamingo card stock.  It’s a piece cut to 5 1/4″ x 11″ scored at 1 3/4″, 3 1/2″, 5 1/4″ and 7″.  Then I cut between the 3 1/2″ and 5 1/4″ scores – at 1 1/4″ from the top and bottom of the cardstock.

I folded the card at the score lines to create the pop up and a back panel.  The back panel is adhered to a Basic Black mat.

I cut some panels of Flower & Field DSP and adhered them to the Flirty Flamingo base with Liquid Glue.  There’s a smaller – different pattern – piece, matted on Basic Black and then adhered  to the inside small panel.

For the sentiment, I stamped the Touch of Ink sentiment in Flirty Flamingo on a square piece of Basic White cardstock.  In the corner, I stamped the butterfly from Touch of Ink in Smoky Slate and added the wing-fill image in Balmy Blue.  I adhered the panel to a Basic Black mat and then to the pop-up portion of the card base.

I scored and folded a 5″ x 7 1/2″ piece of Basic White at 3 3/4″.  Centered on the front, I stamped a sentiment from Happy Thoughts in Flirty Flamingo.  Hint – you want this to be covered when the card is closed, so…be sure to stamp accordingly!

I flipped the card inside-out so that I could stamp the butterfly from Touch of Ink in the top left corner.  Then I added the flower image in Smoky Slate  – with Flirty Flamingo “fill”.

I adhered the back of the card to a Basic Black mat with Liquid Glue – then adhered it all to another Basic Black “card base”.

On the front of the white card, I added two strips of Basic Black-matted Flower & Field DSP with Liquid Glue.

I punched some flowers from Flower & Field DSP with the Small Bloom Punch – added Smoky Slate middles with an eraser (check the video to see how!) and then adhered them with Liquid Glue.  An Opal Round in the middle of each flower….and the card was done!

My Basic White Medium Envelope got the Touch of Ink flower on the front…

…and more of the pretty Flower & Field DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I can’t tell you how much I love this fold (thanks, Darryl and Connie!) – it really lets gorgeous paper like the Flower & Field DSP shine!  Touch of Ink and Happy Thoughts are perfect together and with this paper, don’t you think??

I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Art Gallery & Brilliant Wings with Video Tutorial

Good morning and happy Friday!  Only a few days left for Sale-A-Bration, y’all – so…if there are still some of the free goodies you’re wanting – now’s the time!

I’ve also got my Butterfly Bouquet Special Bundle – with some add-ons! – available for you to order.  Check it out down below! 🙂

Speaking of Butterfly Bouquet, I’m a little obsessed with the Brilliant Wings die cut butterflies right now!  If you were able to join me for my YouTube live yesterday, I appreciate you spending part of your day with me – and getting another peek at them!   If not, here’s the replay!

For this one, I paired the Brilliant Wings butterflies with sentiments from the Art Gallery Bundle – including the cool die cut sentiment from Floral Gallery! – and a bit of Fine Art Floral DSP.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one – although it’s not a mini slim card  – comes from the current Mojo Monday sketch challenge!

Here’s a cool thing.  This particular design in the Fine Art Floral DSP is an exact match to the design in the Golden Garden Specialty Acetate!  I’ve used that here to add a little pizzazz to this card!  You can get 6 card fronts from a 12″ x 12″ sheet of both papers!!

I cut a piece of the Fine Art Floral and the corresponding piece of the Golden Garden Specialty Acetate, then I stacked them up (aligning the pattern) and cut the center out with a Stitched Rectangle Die.

I adhered the frame and cutout piece of the Fine Art Floral DSP to a Terracotta Tile mat using Liquid Glue.  Then I adhered the acetate piece using my Fine Tip Glue Pen – putting little dots of glue only behind the printed parts of the acetate.

I cut a piece of Basic White with the largest square Stitched Shapes Die and popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Next, I cut the big sentiment from Floral Gallery in Terracotta Tile – then adhered just three of the words to the square with Liquid Glue.

I wrapped a piece of Terracotta Tile Scalloped Edge Linen Ribbon around the bottom of the panel, securing it in back with Glue Dots.

From a piece of the Butterfly Bijou 6″ x 6″ DSP (coming on 2 March), I used the big die in the Brilliant Wings die set (also 2 March!) to cut 6 butterflies.  I used a couple of smaller detailed dies to cut three Petal Pink butterflies and a single Terracotta Tile butterfly.  I adhered the detailed Petal Pink die cuts to two of the DSP butterflies and the Terracotta Tile detailed cut with Liquid Glue.

Then I adhered the butterflies to the card front with Liquid Glue – and tucked a Stampin’ Dimensional under them as needed to support them!

Finally, I added a few Champagne Rhinestone Jewels and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped an Art Gallery sentiment in Terracotta Tile on a Basic White panel.  In the corner, I stamped the big flower (this is a three-step-image!) – the large image is Petal Pink then the second and third step images are stamped-off-once Terracotta Tile! 🙂

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

My Basic White Medium Envelope got more of the pretty Art Gallery flower on the front…

….and more of the Fine Art Floral DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Yes – yes, I CAN figure out how to put a butterfly from the Butterfly Bouquet bundle on almost any card!  🙂  And they look awesome with the gorgeous and stunning Fine Art Floral DSP with some sentiments and images from the Art Gallery Bundle, don’t you think!?

Et Voila!  I hope you like!

After getting off the treadmill in the morning, I’m a little sweaty.  And a little pissy cuz…treadmill! Bleh.

And yesterday morning I was also just tired – hadn’t slept enough the night before.

So…it was a little (by which I mean a LOT!) envy-inducing to find…

Totally sacked out.

Treadmill schmedmill, says Finn.  That’s just silly, Mom! 😂

Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Bouquet Tranquil Thoughts for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good morning, y’all!  It’s Thursday – which means it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!!  We’ve got a sketch challenge to work with today 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!

I had a hankering to play with the soon-to-be-available Butterfly Bouquet bundle and gorgeous Butterfly Bijou 6″ x 6″ DSP (coming to you on 2 March!), so that’s what I reached for.  I added a couple sentiments from Tranquil Thoughts and some leaves using its bundled Tranquil Dies (all available now).  Take a look-see:

And here’s our sketch!

I started with a dreamy watercolor panel from Butterfly Bijou DSP and cut it for the card front.  It’s a little smaller on the short-side than usual – 3 3/4″ versus 3 7/8″.  You’ll see why in a sec.

I used the next to largest rectangle Stitched With Whimsy die to add some decorative stitching around the edges then cut the panel at 1 1/2″ along the short side.

Using Liquid Glue, I adhered the two pieces of the panel to a Basic Black mat – leaving a gap between them (that’s why I made it a little smaller than usual!).

I stamped a sentiment from the Tranquil Thoughts stamp set in Just Jade on a piece of Basic White, then cut it with the next-to-largest oval in the Stitched Shapes Die set.

On the scrap of Butterfly Bijou left after cutting my card front, I stamped some leaves from Tranquil Thoughts in Just Jade and cut them with their dies in the bundled Tranquil Dies set.

I used the big die in the Brilliant Wings Die set to cut butterflies from one of the Butterfly Bijou DSP designs.  I have to say – it’s so SO cool to make one pass with the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine and get a whole fluttering of multi-colored beauties!!

I adhered the leaves I’d cut to the card front with Liquid Glue, then popped the sentiment oval over top with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere my die cut butterflies – and then stuck some dimensionals under a few wings here and there to help them “keep flying”.  🙂

Using my Dark Misty Moonlight Stampin’ Blend, I colored several white Resin Hearts and adhered them around the collage.  And…the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped a second sentiment from Tranquil Thoughts in Just Jade on a Basic White panel.  In the corner, I stamped the larger leaf twice in Just Jade and the smaller leaf a couple times in stamped-off-once Just Jade.  Then I added some Misty Moonlight-colored Resin Hearts.

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

My Basic White Medium Envelope got more Tranquil Thoughts leaves in Just Jade on the front…

…and more of the Butterfly Bijou 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  You guys!  I am SO loving this Butterfly Brilliance stamp set and bundled Brilliant Wings Dies – and can hardly wait for you to get your hands on it!!  Of course, since it’s an image only set, you’re going to need a good sentiment or two and the Tranquil Thoughts set comes thru perfectly.  And even brings some Tranquil Dies leaves to the party!

I hope you like (and are making plans to add these to your stash!).

Stampin’ Up! Wild Roses & Happy Thoughts Sneak Peek

Happy Happy Hawwwmp Day and…Merry Christmas Eve Eve!  Ready or not….it’s upon us, y’all!

We’re headed today to get my Christmas present.  I’m excited!  I mean – it’s a work thing, but…still!   Only downside is we have to do the trek to Atlanta to get it.  Bleh.  But – I’m still excited!

My card today is a play on the Triple Time Technique – made quick and easy with the oh-so-handy-and-awesome Stamparatus!  I used two new stamp sets – that you’ll be able to get on 5 Jan.  One is a lovely background stamp called Wild Roses and the other is the wonderful Happy Thoughts sentiment set.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! In the Pines with Fields of Flowers

Good morning and Happy Happy HAWWWWMP Day!!  Are you hitting that 24-hour Flash Sale hard?  I hope so – I know there are sets on the sale that I don’t have – but…that will be different by the end of the day, for sure! I know – you’re shocked that there are sets I don’t have.  It’s true, though!  😉

My card today is one that makes me think of Colorado in the Spring.  Or the Fall.  Or…heck…mid-Summer! 😉  Flowers, meadows, pines and…snow.  I put the In the Pines Bundle together with the Field of Flowers Bundle to create a high-mountain meadow in bloom….with a light early snow flying about.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Comfort & Hope Sneak Peek With Video Tutorial

Happy Friday!!  I hope you’ve had an awesome week.  Headed into a long weekend!  So…put on your 3-day weekend pajamas!  🙂

If you were able to join me for my YouTube video yesterday – I appreciate you spending some of your day with me!  If not, but you’d like to see the replay…here ’tis!

This card is a sneak peek of the new Comfort & Hope set from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.  And it’s a sweet one – especially when paired with some wonderful textural paper from the In Good Taste DSP (also coming on 3 Jun in the new catalog).  Take a look-see:

The color palette for this one is from the Global Design Project color challenge this week.

I started with a piece of stucco-looking paper from the new In Good Taste DSP (I can’t wait for you to get a good look at this paper in person – it’s amazing!) and began to build my “ink collage”.

In Blushing Bride, I stamped the wreath image from the Comfort & Hope set.  Then I started adding leaves in stamped-off-once Pretty Peacock and faceted gems (not real – stamped!) in full strength Pretty Peacock.

The grid pattern stamped image is done in Soft Sea Foam – as are the little dots. These are all images from Comfort & Hope!  I also added a couple of leaves in Soft Sea Foam.

Once all the stamping was done, I cut a Stitched Rectangle die from the middle of the panel and matted that die cut on Pretty Peacock.  I used Liquid Glue to adhere the remaining “frame” to a Pretty Peacock mat.  Then I popped the cut out back onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I tied a medium-sized simple bow with the gold trim from the new Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack (available 3 Jun) and adhered it with a Glue Dot.

On a piece of Whisper White, I stamped the sentiment from Comfort & Hope in Pretty Peacock.  I added a grid image and some dots in Soft Sea Foam, and a few “faceted gems” in Pretty Peacock.  Then I cut it out with the Timeless Label Punch.

I popped the sentiment onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals, added a few Gold Metallic Pearls – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a second sentiment in Pretty Peacock to a Whisper White panel.  Then I inked and stamped more collage images in Blushing Bride, Pretty Peacock and Soft Sea Foam.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Pretty Peacock mat and into my Gray Granite card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more collage elements on the front…

…and some of the In Good Taste DSP – stamped with Comfort & Hope images – on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I love that this pretty Comfort & Hope set is so conducive to creating stamped collages!  The sentiments are also pretty perfect – especially for the times we’re in, huh?

And how cool does it look stamped on the In Good Taste DSP!??  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Field of Flowers Sneak Peek for Every Season

Happy Tuesday, y’all!  I’ve heard from a few folks who have received their catalogs from me – so…if you think you were on my list – be checking your mailboxes!  The USPS moved them pretty fast! 🙂

My card today is one that I made with my Pre-Order goodies which, oh-by-the-way!, YOU could select as part of your Starter Kit if you join right now (instead of waiting until the 3rd of JUNE!!)!  Ask me how!

No.  Really.  Ask me how and join the team!

You know you want to! 😉

Anywho – I pulled out the Field Of Flowers stamp set and combined it with some paper from the Flowers For Every Season DSP and the coordinating Memories & More Card Pack.  Take a look-see:

Easy peasy – and not a fussy-cut in sight! 😉

The layout for this one hails from the As You See It Challenge this week.

I started with a Just Jade card from the new Flowers For Every Season Memories & More Cards & Envelopes pack.

For the card front, I matted a piece of Flowers For Every Season DSP on a piece of Bumble Bee card stock.  Then I cut a coordinating piece with a Stitched Rectangle Die and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I matted a strip of yet another design from the Flowers For Every Season DSP on Bumble Bee and adhered it with Liquid Glue.  Then I wrapped a piece of the open weave ribbon from the new Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack around it – adhering it in the back with a couple of Glue Dots.

I cut down one of the small cards in the Flowers For Every Season Memories & More Card Pack.  Then I stamped the pretty sentiment from Field of Flowers in Shaded Spruce and matted it on Bumble Bee.

I popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals, added a Bumble Bee 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dot and the card front was done!

On the inside, on a Very Vanilla panel, I stamped a second sentiment from Field of Flowers in Shaded Spruce.  In the corner, I added the stems in Shaded Spruce and the sweet wild-flowers image in Crushed Curry.  And…I thought I was done.  But then…I spied with my little eye…the dragonflies in the set!  Love dragonfly images, so…on they went in Tuxedo Black!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Bumble Bee mat and into the Flowers For Every Season Memories & More Card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

The pre-printed envelope from the Flowers For Every Season Memories & More Cards & Envelopes got more of the Field of Flowers flowers on the front…

…and the flap is already decorated on the inside, so…done!

Et Voila!  You guys – I LOVE this Field of Flowers stamp set!  The big focal sentiment “always”, in the gorgeous font, is designed to work in combination with the other words and phrases in the set.  And…the flowers are wonderful!

And there is no denying the beauty of the Flowers for Every Season DSP, is there??

I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Touched My Heart Sneak Peek for The Paper Players

Hey y’all – it’s Sunday (Happy Mother’s Day!!), which means I’ve got another fun challenge for you from the Paper Players – it’s a color challenge from our crafty Claire 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!

Every Stampin’ Up! catalog includes a few stamp sets that are available only as Host rewards (or for individual orders that qualify!) and this new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog is no exception! As a little perk of being a Demonstrator (one of many!), I was able to buy two of the new sets during our Pre-Order.  One of those, the Touched My Heart set, is the focal point for my perfect-for-Mother’s-Day card today!  Take a look-see:

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

I used the sketch challenge at Tuesday Morning Sketches to inspire the layout.

I started with a piece of Pool Party cardstock and, using the two leaves images from the Touched My Heart set, stamped all over the panel in Pool Party ink.  Then I added the little butterfly here and there amongst the leaves.

I used one of the embossing folders in the new Greenery Embossing Folder Pack (coming on 3 Jun in the new catalog), to emboss just the side of the panel.  Then I adhered it to a Granny Apple Green mat with Liquid Glue.

On a piece of Whisper White, I stamped the pretty heart image from Touched My Heart in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  Then I colored it with the Melon Mambo and Granny Apple Green Watercolor Pencils.

I cut the image with the largest circle Stitched Shapes Die – then cut the next largest circle out of the middle.

I adhered the “frame” to the card front with Liquid Glue.

Then I wrapped a length of Whisper White 1/4″ Crinkled Seam Binding around the card front – adhering it in the back with Glue Dots.  Finally, I popped the remainder of the image onto the card front – making sure to line the image up! – with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment in Granny Apple Green on a strip of Whisper White and snipped banner ends, edged it with my Pool Party Stampin’ Write Marker, then adhered it with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The Touched My Heart butterfly, stamped in Pool Party on Whisper White and fussy cut, then colored with the Melon Mambo Watercolor Pencil, is popped on with another Stampin’ Dimensional.

A single Melon Mambo gem from the Glitter Enamel Dots (these are retiring so get ’em fast!!) finished off the card front!

On the inside, I stamped a leaf and a butterfly in Pool Party on a Whisper White panel and colored them with the Watercolor Pencils…

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Granny Apple Green mat and into my Pool Party card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Touched My Heart leaves and butterfly on the front…

…and on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This is such a sweet and simple stamp set – with line-drawn images and lovely sentiments in pretty fonts – I know you’re going to want it in your tool chest!

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!
