Happy Thursday, y’all – and welcome to another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!! Today’s a color challenge, and I hope you’ll check out everyone’s projects when you’re done here! I love these colors (although I got a little jiggy with the pink…) – and know you will, too.
I pulled out one of my favorite papers from the Petal Promenade DSP and took inspiration from a card my friend and team member Clara Shore made. Then I added a pretty sentiment from the Accented Blooms stamp set. Take a look-see:
Hey, y’all! It’s way later on a Saturday (or any day, for that matter!) than you’re used to seeing me, but…I was tickled (and…amazed!!) to be invited by my friend Kylie Bertucci to be the guest on the Crazy Crafters Blog Hop!
Of course I said of course!! 🙂
For these hops, everyone who plays along CASEs a card they find on my blog. Including me! So – I went thru some past posts and found one that really appealed to me. I loved the DSP and stamped flowers and the layout!
And then I CASE’d it with current goodies! The centerpiece is the new Dandelion Wishes stamp set and some pretty Garden Impressions DSP. Take a look-see:
Good morning, my peeps! THIS IS A BIG BIG DAY!!
No – not cuz it’s Friday (although that’s pretty cool, too!). Nope – it’s a BIG DAY because today the new 2018-2019 Annual Catalog goes live!!
The Online Store will be down today until around noon Mountain Time – so…patience, Padawan….patience! Once it goes live, remember that the Stampin’ Blends in the new colors won’t be available just yet – although the current color Blends WILL be! And – the Big Plans Planner Kit (Item 146859) and Big Plans Planner Kit Refill (Item 146861) won’t be available until 11 Jun. Everything else will FINALLY be yours to choose – so gird those credit cards and have fun!
I’m still taking orders for the new and In Color Bundles – they’ll help you save a little stress on that aforementioned credit card (and have it to spend on even more fun stuff!!). So if you’re wanting one of those, check them out below and get your order in!
Now. Let’s have a card, shall we? 🙂
I used the super pretty Enjoy Life stamp set and paired it with my favorite Garden Impressions DSP design. Take a look-see:

Morning, y’all – it’s Finally Friday! And I’m glad. It’ll be nice to not have to think about the “real job” for a minute – I’ve sorta got my hands full fretting about Finn. Full Finn Fretting, if you will. It’s a full-time job, for certain sure. 😉
The card I made today is clean and simple – and made easy by the existence of the Climbing Orchid bundle – which includes the Orchid Builder Framelits! When I added a bunch of pink orchids to some Wood Textures DSP I got…well, take a look-see:
Happy Hawwmp Day, y’all! Hope the week is going well for you!
I have a pretty little Spring-y card to share with you today, using some of my oh-so-large stash of Delightful Daisy DSP and the so-pretty Friendship’s Sweetest Thoughts stamp set. Take a look-see:
Good morning, y’all! Today I’m fortunate to be taking part in a wonderful Blog Hop celebrating World Autism Awareness Day (which is…well…today!) 🙂
While I’m not directly affected by autism, did you know that as many as 1.5 million Americans today are believed to have some form of autism? And this number is on the rise. Based on statistics from the U.S. Department of Education and other governmental agencies, autism is growing at the startling rate of 10-17% per year. At this rate, estimates state that the prevalence of autism could reach 4 million Americans in the next decade. And, autism knows no racial, ethnic, social boundaries, family income, lifestyle, or educational levels and can affect any family, and any child.
So – to show my support on World Autism Day, I made a card using the Ribbon of Courage stamp set and…Watts of Occasions! Take a look-see:

Well, look-ee look-ee! Guess what day it is again!? Yep – it’s HAWWWWMP Day, y’all! It’s downhill from here to the weekend.
My card today is another departure from my norm. In that it uses brighter colors and more…abstractedness…than usual. I pulled out the pretty Hello Friend stamp set (the coordinating stamp set for the Hello Friend Heat Embossing Project Kit!) and tried a new coloring technique. Take a look-see:
There’s a reason for the colors – I was playing along with the TGIF Color Challenge this week! Continue reading
Mornin’, y’all – we made it to Friday again! Whoo-hoo!!
My card today will go to a friend and her husband who are going thru a rough patch – and I couldn’t think of anything better than Heartfelt Blooms and the Here For You stamp sets! Plus some textures from the Basket Weave Dynamic TIEF. Take a look-see:
I borrowed the sketch from this week’s My Favorite Things sketch. Continue reading
Merry Monday, y’all! Well…it IS Monday – you decide if it’s Merry or not!
If you were able to join me last night for my FB Live video, I appreciate you spending part of your weekend with me! If not, but you’d like to watch and see how I made today’s card, here’s a link to the YouTube replay!
I was celebrating the arrival of my little yellow daffodils – they took last year “off”! – and made this card with the gorgeous flower image from the You’re Inspiring stamp set. And, after seeing a card on Pinterest (thanks for sending it, Elisha!), I wanted to try the technique. Take a look-see: Continue reading
Happy Sunday, folks! Hope this post finds y’all well and having a good weekend!
As is – mostly! – the norm, I’m sharing just a little glimpse at the card we’ll make this evening. I’ll be live on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page at 8pm eastern (that’s our normal time). The card uses the wonderful You’re Inspiring stamp set – and it pays homage to my brave little daffodils poking their heads up in the hopes that winter is over! Take a sneaky-peek:
We’re going to do some fun embossing in Copper – so I hope you can join me! Here’s a link! Continue reading
