Stampin’ Up! Spiral Dye Inspired Thoughts Sneak Peek

Good morning, everyone.  Thanks for all the kind messages that so many have sent about Cerah.  She’s on an upward trend – so I’m cautiously optimisic!

I’m sorry I wasn’t able to meet up with y’all on Facebook last night but…it just wasn’t going to happen.  🙁

But the card I made is kind of fun….yeah, BABY!  The 60’s called and wants their tie-dye shirt back!  Yes – I used the brand new Spiral Dye background stamp and a few cool sentiments from the new Inspired Thoughts stamp set.  These are both coming in just TWO DAYS on the 4th in the new catalog.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from the Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge this week.

And the wild color scheme is from the Global Design Project color challenge!

And it fits nicely with the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.

I started with the Spiral Dye stamp and my Stamparatus.  First, I stamped the image in Coastal Cabana.  Then I rotated the Basic White cardstock panel 180 degrees and stamped the image a second time in Bumble Bee ink.  I matted the panel on Magenta Madness to make the card front.

I cut a Basic White panel and a Magenta Madness mat and used my Layering Circle Dies to cut a smooth circle from the White panel and a slightly larger scalloped circle from the Magenta panel. I took the first smooth-side circle die that I’d used on the Basic White panel to cut the center out of the Magenta Madness circle – creating a frame.

 

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the white panel to the Magenta mat.  Then I used a little more of the Glue to adhere the scalloped-edge frame to the white panel.  Then I popped the whole thing over the card front with Black Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Basic White, I stamped an Inspired Thoughts sentiment in Magenta Madness.  Then I snipped a banner end.  I made a mat of Magenta Madness and adhered the sentiment to it with Liquid Glue.

Using Black Stampin’ Dimensionals and a little Liquid Glue, I popped the sentiment onto the card front.

I used two lengths of Black baker’s twine from the new Baker’s Twine Essentials Pack (coming on 4 May in the new 2021-22 Annual Catalog) to tie a simple bow, which I adhered with a Glue Dot.

I added a few Matte Black Dots and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped a second Inspired Thoughts sentiment in Magenta Madness on a Basic White panel.  Then I added a strip of Coastal Cabana paper from the new Brights 6″ x 6″ DSP pack – which is also matted on Magenta Madness.  A single Matte Black Dot finished it off.

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

My Basic White Medium Envelope got a few fun sentiments from Inspired Thoughts on the front..

…and I used a little more of the Brights 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  So…did YOU have a tie-dyed t-shirt??  I sure did – heck I MADE tie-dyed shirts!  This Spiral Dye background set brings it back, doesn’t it?  I love the color possibilities for fun card elements.  And the all-sentiments-all-the-time Inspired Thoughts is a wonderful set with so many great sentiments to use on your projects!

I hope you like!  And are getting excited for Tuesday!! 🙂  In addition to the new catalog going live we’ve got TWO amazing new promotion starting then, too – read one down to get the deets!

So…as we keep taking the next day and the next to help Cerah recover – part of the program is hand-grazing a few times a day.  On Saturday she was making a concerted demand to go here…there…wherever the clover and tiny grasses were.

Finn…helped.

 

Including partaking of a little of the grasses and clovers as he rested.

Stampin’ Up! Elegantly Said Sneak Peek 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 decided to play with the Elegantly Said stamp set for today’s card.  I just got the pretty metallic-foiled Simply Elegant Specialty DSP and made a card with my fave design in the pack!  Take a look-see:

And here’s our hop sketch challenge.

I also played along with the Tic-Tac-Toe challenge.  Went across the middle row.  🙂

I started with a piece of Basic Gray cardstock that I embossed in the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder.  Then I used a Blender Brush to very lightly brush the ridges and swirls of the embossed image with Whisper White Kraft Ink.

I matted the panel on Smoky Slate for the card front.  Using Stampin’ Seal – I adhered a Square Vellum Doily.

I cut my fave design from the Simply Elegant Specialty DSP with a Stitched Rectangle Die and adhered it to the card front with Black Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut a piece of Copper Foil with a smaller Stitched Rectangle Die – embossed it in the Painted Texture folder and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

Using the large foliage die in the Forever Flourishing Die set, I cut a piece of Gold Foil – then adhered the leaves with Liquid Glue.

I tied a small simple bow with the Silver twine from the new Simply Elegant Trim pack and adhered it with a Glue Dot.

I placed a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock into my Stamparatus and, using the Marker-to-Stamp technique – colored and stamped just the first part of the Elegantly Said sentiment with my Basic Gray Stampin’ Write Marker.  Then I cut it with the Rectangle Stitched Die.

I stamped the Elegantly Said floral image in Smoky Slate over top of the sentiment.  Then I used a couple of Black Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop the sentiment onto the card front.

A few silver Metallic Pearls finished it off!

On the inside, I again used my Stamparatus – this time coloring the SECOND half of the sentiment with my Basic Gray Stampin’ Write Marker and stamped it on a Very Vanilla panel.  I added the floral in Smoky Slate and a single silver Metallic Pearl.

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

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got the Elegantly Said floral on the front in Smoky Slate…

…and more of the Simply Elegant Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This truly IS Simply Elegant paper, is it not?  And the gorgeous images and sentiments in the Elegantly Said bundle complement it perfectly!

I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Prized Peony Garden Love & Thanks for the Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Good morning, y’all – welcome to another edition of Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team blog hop!  Each month we make projects centered around a theme – and this month our theme is For the Girls/Ladies!  We can interpret that any way we want – so…be sure to check and see everyone’s projects – we’ve got a bunch of talented ladies hopping with us this month!

I thought “pretty flowers” when I saw the challenge – and the Prized Peony Bundle came to mind right away!  I combined it with some lovely Peony Garden DSP.  Take a look-see:

I used the sketch side of the FUSION challenge for my layout on this one.

The Just Add Ink challenge fits perfectly.  It’s pretty obvious which two I chose!

Finally, the Tic-Tac-Toe challenge comes into play. I used Pattern Paper – Free – Embellishment (although why the heck I didn’t add a new Bee Trinket is beyond me! 🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️)

I started with a piece of Gray Granite paper from the Peony Garden DSP that I matted on Gray Granite for the card front.

Next up, I took a second – flower-strewn piece – and cut the scalloped edge with the die in the Peony Die set.  Then I adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I wrapped some Mossy Meadow 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim twice around the panel, securing it in the back with Glue Dots.

I stamped the large Prized Peony image in Gray Granite on Basic White, then I cut it with the matching die in the Peony Die set.

I colored the flower with my Dark Petal Pink Stampin’ Blend and Light Mossy Meadow Blend – using the stamped blending markings in the image – which means it’s super easy to color!

I popped the flower onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the Prized Peony sentiment in Gray Granite on a piece of Petal Pink cardstock and cut it with the next-to-smallest rectangle in the Stitched So Sweetly Die set.

I popped the sentiment over the flower and trim with more Dimensionals.

I tied a simple bow using two pieces of the Mossy Meadow 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim and adhered it with a Glue Dot.

Some Champagne Rhinestones here and there finished off the card front.

On the inside, I stamped another sentiment from Prized Peony in Gray Granite on a Basic White panel.  Over it, in stamped-off-once Petal Pink, I added the geometric image from the set a few times.  In the corner, I stamped another Prized Peony image and colored it with my Blends.  Then I popped on one more Champagne Rhinestone.  Cuz I could! 😉

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

My Basic White Medium Envelope got another Prized Peony flower on the front…

…and more of the Peony Garden DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This gorgeous Prized Peony stamp set and bundled Peony Dies are coming back in the new 2021-2022 Annual Catalog.  Whoo-hoo!!  BUT – the bundle pricing (10% off!) is GOING AWAY – So…if you don’t have this beauty yet, get it before the current catalog ends on 3 May!  But – the Peony Garden DSP will NOT be back – so…get it right now (and…it’s just $9.20 right now – that’s a 20% savings!)

I hope you like!

If you’d like to recreate this card, all the products and card cuts are listed below!

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:

Stampin’ Up! Hey Chick Happy Day with Video Tutorial

Good morning! Happy Valentine’s Day – are there romantic plans in your future?  And – it’s ALSO a three-day weekend! I don’t know about y’all – but…three day weekends – when it’s cold and yucky outside – just aren’t that exciting!  There should be more of them later in Spring when the weather is pretty and we WANT to be outside doing things.  I think we need to combine chocolate (Valentine’s Day) with an acknowledgment that it’s nasty outside – and…snuggle down with some hot chocolate, a warm dog (or kitty!) and a good book!!  Who’s with me?

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

For this card, I used the undeniably adorable Hey Chick stamp set and bundled Chick Dies – with a little 2020-2022 In Color 6″ x 6″ DSP.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this card comes from this week’s Global Design Project sketch.

I started by matting a piece of Bumble Bee paper from the 2020-2022 In Color 6″ x 6″ DSP on Old Olive for the card front.

Next, I used the die in the Chick Dies to cut two chicken-wire die cuts.  I trimmed one down a bit and then adhered them to the card front with Liquid Glue.  Tip: I like the ends of things to “fall” off the edge of the card front a little – so…I placed the card front onto my card base (not adhered) so that I could be sure it hung over just enough – but NOT past the edges of the card base.

I cut the largest oval Stitched Shapes Die from a piece of Basic White and popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Then I started cutting barn-yard shapes using the Chick Dies.  From Soft Suede, I cut a chicken coop and a sign.  Mossy Meadow for four corn stalks, Old Olive for four corn husks, and Bumble Bee for four corn cobs.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the husks to the cobs and then to the stalks.  And I stamped the Hey Chick sentiment in Tuxedo Black onto the sign.

I used short little pieces of 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim to make corn “silks”.  This was my friend Debbie Lindauer’s idea (yes – I made this card while we were all playing and crafting on my Zoom The Craftroom on Thursday evening – so it was kind of a card-by-committee!).  I adhered the little pieces of trim to the back of each corn cob and then pulled it apart to make it all corn-silky! 😉

I adhered the coop and three stalks to the Basic White oval with Liquid Glue.

On a piece of Basic White, I stamped the Hey Chick crazy-hair chick in Tuxedo Black.  I colored her hair, tail feathers, legs and beak with my Flirty Flamingo and Bumble Bee Stampin’ Write Markers.  Her body is Dark So Saffron Stampin’ Blend.  Then I cut her out with the matching die in the Chick Dies.

I popped my chick on with Stampin’ Dimensionals, then tucked the final corn stalk in behind her.  Finally, with more Dimensionals and a little Liquid Glue, I popped the sign in place – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a second Hey Chick sentiment in Tuxedo Black on a Basic White panel.  The crazy hair chick peeks in from the corner!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to an Old Olive mat and into my Mossy Meadow card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Basic White Medium Envelope got miss crazy hair on the front…

…and more of the Bumble Bee 2020-2022 In Color 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Seriously – how cute is this bundle??  I don’t know what I love more – the crazy chickens in the Hey Chick stamp set or the so-uber-fun die cuts in the Chick Dies?!?  How about you??

No matter what you like more – the stamp set and dies are limited time – so…if you love them like I do – get them sooner rather than later, okay?

I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Heal Your Heart Paper Blooms 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 theme challenge 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!

We’re all playing with Sale-A-Bration products today and I selected the Heal Your Heart stamp set and the pretty Paper Blooms DSP .  These are both freebies at the $50 level – meaning when you spend $50 (before shipping & tax) you could select either of these products.  Now – fun fact – the Paper Blooms DSP coordinates with the In Bloom Bundle in the Jan – Jun 2021 Mini Catalog.  So….I called that SAB-Adjacent and used it in my card, too!  Take a look-see:

Here’s our challenge badge!

And – I also let the TGIF Challenge give me a hand!

I selected a card on page 3 of the Sale-A-Bration catalog as my inspiration!

I started with a piece of Paper Blooms DSP that I matted on Night of Navy for the card front.  Then I matted a piece of Basic White on Night of Navy and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I used a few of the fun stitched dies in the Pierced Blooms set to cut out some of the flowers in the Paper Blooms DSP.  AND – I used some leaves and flower dies to cut flowers from the DSP in Petal Pink, Soft Sea Foam and Night of Navy.  There’s a design that has big bold circles of color – and you just cut your shapes right out of them!.

Finally, I cut some leaves from Soft Sea Foam cardstock.

On a piece of Soft Sea Foam, I stamped the Heal Your Heart sentiment in Night of Navy and cut it with the label die in Pierced Blooms.  Then I was ready to assemble my collage! 🙂

I started by adhering leaves and a flower with Liquid Glue.  Then I added a Gold Hoop Embellishment with a couple of Glue Dots.

I popped the sentiment on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and kept adding flowers and leaves.  It looked like it needed a bow – so I cut one with the Pierced Blooms die – using the Petal Pink circle of color on the Paper Blooms DSP.  Then I added it with a little Liquid Glue.

I adhered a few little flowers here and there around the collage.

Because I could and I love them so much, I added Champagne Rhinestones to the flower centers – and the center of the bow – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped three In Bloom flowers in Petal Pink on a Basic White panel.  I added a couple of Soft Sea Foam stems and some Night of Navy flower centers.  And…Champagne Rhinestones!  Again…because I COULD! 🙂

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Night of Navy mat and into my Soft Sea Foam card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Basic White Medium Envelope got more In Bloom flowers on the front…

…and a little more of the Paper Blooms DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Isn’t this Paper Blooms DSP pretty?  And the fact that you can cut stitched flowers from it using the Pierced Blooms die set (bundled with the In Bloom stamp set) is a really happy bonus!

And…Heal Your Heart remains one of my favorite sentiment sets!!

I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Snailed It Happy Thoughts Slim-Line Card

Good morning and welcome to another work week.  I hope it will be a good one for all of you!

My card today is a Slim-Line one and I don’t usually do them.  The lack of envelopes is a sticky point for me – but…I saw the sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches this week and I wanted to play along.  And it occured to me that….regular business envelopes are slim-line-card-friendly.  And – mine are the security-kind so…no one will be able to “peek” at my card! 😉

With that problem solved…I pulled out my Snailed It bundle – yes, FINALLY got it!!, the coordinating Snail Mail DSP and the Happy Thoughts stamp set to make a sort of thank-you-y sort of congratulations-y card.  Take a look-see:

 

And here’s the challenge from Freshly Made Sketches.

I started with a long piece of Snail Mail DSP that I matted on Real Red for the card front.  Then I looped some Blushing Bride twine from the Snail Mail Twine Combo twice around the panel – securing it on the card front under the decorations.

I used the square die in the Snail Die Set to cut two pieces of Snail Mail DSP – and adhered them both to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I stamped the Snailed It sentiment in Real Red on a piece of Whisper White (Basic White will work, too), cut it with the next-to-smallest Stitched So Sweetly rectangle die and popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

There are two dies in Snail Die Set that cut adorable snails from a couple of the designs in the Snail Mail DSP – so I cut them out!

Using a combination of Liquid Glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals, I adhered the two sweet snails to the card front.

Then I cut three hearts from Real Red – using the Snail Dies again – and adhered them with Liquid Glue.

I tied two pieces of Blushing Bride Snail Mail Twine in a bow and adhered it with a Glue Dot – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped a Happy Thoughts sentiment in Real Red on a Whisper White panel.  In the corner, in Tuxedo Black, I stamped the cute Snailed It mushroom image.  I also stamped that image again on the two DSPs I’d used in the front.  Then I fussy cut some mushrooms and adhered them to the stamped image with Liquid Glue (gotta love a little Paper Piecing!).  I added a couple three Resin Heart Embellishments, too!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Real Red mat and into my Thick Whisper White card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My white business envelope got a Real Red image from Snailed It on the front…

…and I added some of the Bermuda Bay Snail Mail DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila! Sometimes you just gotta think outside the box, huh?  A business envelope – decorated, of course, cuz…#nonekkidenvelopes!…is a perfectly acceptable mailing vessel!  Which is good – because this Snailed It-strewn card is too cute to hide at home!

The Snail Mail DSP is so much fun – and how perfectly perfect for piecing the mushrooms on the inside!

Happy Thoughts is the perfect set to have in your tool box – with sentiments that are ready for any occasion!

I hope you like!
