Stampin’ Up! Just Because I Was Thinking of You!

Mornin’, y’all!  Hope your week is going well!

I’ve got a pretty little note card for you today, that uses a new Host-Exclusive stamp set from the 2019 Occasions catalog, called Just Because.  And you’ll be able to purchase it with Stampin’ Rewards starting on 3 Jan!  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from this week’s FabFriday sketch challenge.

I started with some Festive Farmhouse DSP and embossed it in the Pinewood Planks Dynamic TIEF, then matted it on a piece of Mossy Meadow card stock for the card front.

I used the Leaf Punch to make some Vellum and Copper Foil Leaves, which I adhered to the card front with Liquid Glue.

On a piece of Very Vanilla card stock, I stamped the pretty image/sentiment (all one stamp!) from the Just Because Host-exclusive set (coming on 3 Jan 19) in Early Espresso Ink.

I colored the image with my Old Olive and Cajun Craze Watercolor Pencils.

I adhered the panel to a Mossy Meadow mat with Liquid Glue and popped it over the leaves with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

For the heart, I colored a new Heart Epoxy Droplet (in the Occasions catalog – available 3 Jan) with my Dark Cajun Craze Stampin’ Blend.  The bow is a simple little number made of Linen Thread – which I adhered with a dab of Liquid Glue and the card front was done!

On the inside, I inked just the flower pot portion of the Just Because stamp in Crumb Cake ink, stamped it off THREE times and then stamped it in the middle of a Very Vanilla panel.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Mossy Meadow 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 another Just Because flower pot on the front – stamped in Early Espresso and colored with the Watercolor Pencils…

…and I added a little more Festive Farmhouse DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This Just Because Host stamp set is really wonderful, y’all!  Hope you like!

Once it comes available in January, you’ll be able to pick this Host set using Stampin’ Rewards – which you’ll earn when you host a workshop that reaches $150 or if you place an individual order of $150 or more!  If you’ve just added this set to your wish list, let me know.  I’ve got Online Host Clubs getting ready to start in January that will let you get this one for yourself – I’ll be happy to get you on the list!  Get all the information and the list of bennies right here!

Finn is a wonderful conversationalist.

Seriously.  He understands everything I’m asking of him and responds appropriately.

For example:  “Finn!  What’s that noise?”

As opposed to: “Finn – where’s your dad?”

“Want a cookie!??”

“Need to go outside?”

See what I mean?  Total intra-species communication!

Stampin’ Up! Happiness Surrounds Sneak Peek!

Mornin’, my peeps – hope you’re having a great week!  It’s gorgeous – again!  – here in Colorado – although…it was like…13F when I got up this morning.  Which is approximately 50F too cold for this girl! 😉

Stampin’ Up! Country Home on a Country Lane for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Happy Thursday, y’all – and welcome to another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!! Today’s a color challenge (and it’s very Fall-y!).  With the arrival yesterday of the 2018 Holiday Catalog, I can’t wait for you to see everyone’s projects today!

When I saw our colors for this week, I right away pulled out the new Country Home stamp set and paired it up with the coordinating Country Lane DSP.  Take a look-see:

Uhm…can you guess the colors? 😉

And – since I’ll always take a little extra help…I also pulled some inspiration from this week’s CAS(E) This Sketch challenge.

I started with some wood-grain paper from the Country Lane DSP and embossed it in the new Subtle Dynamic TIEF.  Then I cut a second strip of cotton-y paper in Crushed Curry.  I matted both pieces on Mint Macaron using Liquid Glue, then used more Liquid Glue to adhere the matted strip to the card front.

I wrapped some new 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim around the diagonal strip, securing it in the back with a couple of Glue Dots.

For the art work, I used Early Espresso to stamp the floral arrangement and the milk can from the Coutnry Home set on a piece of Whisper White.  I colored the floral art with my Mint Macaron, Crushed Curry and (yes, I cheated a smidge!) my Cajun Craze Stampin’ Write Marker.

For the milk can, I used a Blender Pen and my Early Espresso Watercolor Pencil – I scribbled some of the Watercolor Pencil on a piece of scrap paper and then used the Blender Pen to pick up the color.

Once I had all the shading that I wanted, I added the sentiment in Early Espresso.  Finally, I used a little tiny paint brush to add some Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint to the can.

I matted the panel on Mint Macaron and popped it over the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Once it was on the card front, it looked a little plain to me, so I added some faux stitches with my Early Espresso Stampin’ Write Marker.

I adhered a Galvanized Button next to the panel with a Glue Dot, then added a double-length bow of 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim with another Glue Dot and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a second sentiment from Country Home in Early Espresso to a Whisper White panel.  Across the bottom, I stamped the floral image a few times in Early Espresso and colored them like I’d done on the front.  The faux stitches finished it off!

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Country Home florals and faux stitches across the front…

…and then I added a little more cotton-y Country Lane DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  How sweet is this Coutnry Home stamp set and the gorgeous Country Lane DSP?!  It’s flat-out perfect for all sorts of wonderful, Fall-y, projects!  I hope you like!

Now that you’ve seen my card, take a minute to hop thru all our projects today  If you click on the Next Blog button, you’ll go right to Kristi’s page. And you can just click on the names below to go direct to all the blogs!

Stampin’ Up! Festive Pop of Petals and Many Blessings

Mornin’, my peeps!  How goes your week? It’s sort of like Monday, right?  I hope you do NOT have a Monday-Tuesday! 🙂

Guess what tomorrow is?!?

Well – yea, it’s Wednesday (aka Hawwmp Day).  But…more importantly – it’s 2018 Holiday Catalog LAUNCH DAY!!

Whoo-hoo!  I know you can hardly wait – and I’m excited for you – I can’t wait to see what you’ve all put on your wish lists that you can finally – FINALLY!! – get on the way! 🙂

For today, though – I’ve got a little bit of new and a little bit of old for you!  I pulled out the Many Blessings stamp set (this one really OUGHT to be on your wish list!) and some Festive Farmhouse DSP (see previous parenthetical!) and put them with some Pop of Petals and….well.  Take a look-see:

I played along with the Fusion challenge this week – hitting both the sketch and the photo inspiration!

I started with a piece of Wood Textures DSP and used a little Liquid Glue to adhere a strip of wonderful plaid paper from the Festive Farmhouse DSP.  Then I adhered the panel to a Mossy Meadow mat for the card front.  I used some Glue Dots to wrap a length of new 5/8″ Striped Burlap Trim around the seam of the two DSPs.

On a piece of Whisper White card stock, I stamped the wreath from the Many Blessings set in Mossy Meadow.  I curled the image around to make it more wreath-like than garland-like!  Then I lightly colored the leaves with my Old Olive Stampin’ Write Marker.  I added some Crushed Curry and Cherry Cobbler berries with the image in the stamp set.

Then I fussy cut the wreath and used Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals (yes, quite a few! 😉 ) to adhere the wreath to the card front.

I pulled one of the flower images from the Pop of Petals stamp set (Annual Catalog) and stamped three in Daffodil Delight on Whisper White and three on Very Vanilla in Crushed Curry.  Then I punched them all with the matching bundled Four-Petal Flower Punch.

I created three flowers by adhering two flowers together with Liquid Glue.  I did two flowers with the white on top and one with the Crushed Curry on top.

Do y’all recognize that kitty?

Yep – it’s the cut-out from last night’s card! 🙂

I ran that thru the Big Shot in the Subtle Dynamic TIEF and then very lightly sponged the edges with Crumb Cake.

Then I stamped it with the Many Blessings sentiment in Cherry Cobbler.

I used some Glue Dots to wind a few loops of Linen Thread around the inside of the wreath and then I started to build the collage!

I used Liquid Glue and Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals as needed to build all the elements.  I also stuck in a few Copper Leaf Elements with Glue Dots.  Then I tied a Linen Thread Billie Bow and adhered it with a Glue Dot.  Over that is a double-length bow of Very Vanilla Solid Baker’s Twine.

I used my Dark Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blend to color three Pearl Basic Jewels and added them to the card front to finish it off.

On the inside, I stamped a second Many Blessings sentiment in Cherry Cobbler to a Very Vanilla panel (I only inked and used half the sentiment).  Then I added a few Crushed Curry flowers (which I also colored a bit with my Crushed Curry Stampin’ Write Marker) and a Mossy Meadow corner.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Mossy Meadow mat and into my Thick Very Vanilla card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

The front of my Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got another corner and flower…

…and I added a little more Wood Textures DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Sometimes being a hoarder-of-scraps pays off, huh?  I love this little Cat Punch guy nestled in the Pop of Petals flowers, don’t you?  And – Many Blessings is destined to be a favorite – for Fall AND for Christmas projects!  I hope you like!

Tic-Toc….not much longer to wait now!

TTFN

Finn Fan Fix

My Finny likes to play ball.

His desire to chase the ball, however, is inversely proportional to the heat.

And his need to play keep away.

On a hot day – like it’s been this week, he’ll race after the ball several times – but the return is…

Sketchy…

“If I bring it back, she’s going to throw it again.”

“I could run up the hill and let her try to get the ball away from me…”

“Or….I could trot to the door and go into the house and get a drink and lay down in front of that cold air that comes from…wherever cold air comes from…”

“You get it, Mom.  I’m done with you.”

“Is that a squirrel?!?”

Stampin’ Up! Petal Promenade Thinking of You For the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

 

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:

Stampin’ Up! Dandelion Wishes for the Crazy Crafter’s Blog Hop!

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!

Stampin’ Up! Rustic Climbing Orchid

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:
