Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tropical Sneak Peek Fun Fold Video Tutorial!

Good morning, all!  Hope your weekend is going well!

Are you ready for Thanksgiving?  My friend Jan and I finalized the menu for dinner last night.  It looks a LOT like it does every year.  There’s comfort in tradition, yes? 🙂

If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video, I appreciate you spending part of this last weekend before Thanksgiving with me!  If not but you’d like to see my CASE of my teammate Tara’s gorgeous fun-fold card and matching gift box, here ’tis!

While Tara used the gorgeous Magnolia Lane suite for her version, I did a sneak peek of the Timeless Tropical stamp set and bundled In The Tropics Dies – with the Tropical Oasis DSP.  Take a look-see!

And here’s the inspiration set that Tara Carpenter made for me!

Thanks, Tara!

While the best way to see how to make the card and box is to watch the video – here’s the basics!

I started by coloring my Mini Pizza Box with my Sponge Brayer and Blushing Bride ink.  Then I decorated the top with matted paper from the Tropical Oasis DSP and an Early Espresso sentiment from the Timeless Tropical stamp set (both coming to you on 4 Jan 20!) and some flowers cut with the In The Tropics Die set.  A loop of new Braided Burlap Trim accentuates the tropical theme!

I added matted DSP all the way around the box – and it was ready.  For our card AND/OR a brownie or cookie or…remember, the Mini Pizza Boxes are food safe on the inside! 🙂

For the card, I cut two pieces of Blushing Bride at 3 1/4″ x 9 3/4″ and scored and folded them both at 3 1/4″ and 6 1/2″.  Using Liquid Glue, I overlapped the end squares to create a loooong accordian-fold card!

On the front, I adhered a So-Saffron-matted piece of Tropical Oasis DSP.  I added a smaller strip (with the car) as well.  Using my Stamparatus and the Marker-to-Rubber inking technique, I stamped the Timeless Tropical palm tree – in Early Espresso for the trunk and Pear Pizzazz and Mossy Meadow for the fronds.  Then I cut it with the matching die in the In The Tropics die set.

I adhered the palm trees with Liquid Glue.

For the inside, I used a sentiment from the 2020 Sale-A-Bration set called Sending You Thoughts, stamping it in Early Espresso on Whisper White and cutting it out with a Stitched Nested Label die.  I popped it onto a So-Saffron-matted piece of Tropical Oasis DSP with Stampin’ Dimensionals – on the center panel as the focal point.  I added more leaves and flowers – and a Noble Rhinestone gem.

The other panels are decorated with Tropical Oasis Memories & More Card pack stickers or the sentiment from Timeless Tropical.

Et Voila!  I feel a little like a broken record but THIS might be my favorite Suite in the upcoming 2020 Jan – Jun Mini Catalog!  Tropical Oasis is simply stunning – with the gorgeous DSP and Timeless Tropical stamp set and bundled In The Tropics Dies!  I hope you like and that this one has made its way… WAAAAY up on your MUST HAVE list when the catalog goes live!

Want it on 3 DECEMBER instead of 4 January?  Well – I can help you with that!  Folks who sign up as Demonstrators starting on 3 Dec can select from the new goodies to fill their Starter Kit!  Whether you’d like to have a business and make a little income or you simply want the awesome discount on EVERYTHING – I would absolutely LOVE to have you on my Critters-N-Creatin’ Krew Team!  Give me a shout!

Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Painted Poppies Sneak Peek For the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hey y’all – it’s Thursday, so it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!!  Today’s a sketch challenge – 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!

You know, when I got back from OnStage, I promised myself I wasn’t going to go hog-wild on bringing you sneak peeks.  But…I can’t help it very much.  I’ve been itching to play with the set I’m sharing today – the Peaceful Poppies suite – since I saw it last Friday night!  This suite has two bundles that anchor it – the Painted Poppies Bundle with an all-images stamp set and the bundled Painted Labels dies and the Peaceful Moments Bundle with an all-sentiment stamp set and the bundled Poppy Moments Dies – all coming on 3 Jan 20!  I used both bundles and paired them with the gorgeous and spectacular Peaceful Poppies DSP.  Take a look-see:

And here’s our sketch!

I started with some of the wunnermus Peaceful Poppies DSP and matted it on Basic Black for the card front.  I added a smaller panel at the bottom with Liquid Glue.  Across the seam I added a black decorative piece from the Peaceful Poppies Elements. And – above the seam, I also added one of the round elements from the set.

Let me tell you something, you guys – the Poppy Moments Dies are a collage-makers DREAM!!  Check out the leaves!  And the flowers!

I cut the large and small detailed flower in Calypso Coral – as well as the solid flowers that match them.  Using Liquid Glue, I adhered the detailed flowers to the solid flowers.  I used the detailed dies again to cut paper from the same Peaceful Poppies DSP that I’d used on the card front. I adhered the die cut pieces inside the card stock flowers (paper piecing).  Look at the shading that created!  I also cut some flower centers in Basic Black and added them with Liquid Glue.

I cut leaves – each leaf is composed of two-pieces – from Mossy Meadow and Old Olive – then I adhered them together with Liquid Glue.

Inside the Peaceful Poppies Elements, you’ll find some white-printed vellum leaves and flowers.  I used two of those leaves and colored the back with my Dark Mossy Meadow and Dark Old Olive Stampin’ Blends.

The last piece of the puzzle is the sentiment.  I stamped the Peaceful Moments sentiment in Poppy Parade on Whisper White and cut it with the smallest Rectangle Stitched Die.

Then – I took a few minutes to play with all the pieces – including a length of Basic Black baker’s twine from the new Country Club Twine Combo Pack (available 3 Jan 20).  Once I got a collage that I liked – I snapped some pictures with my phone camera – in various stages so that it would be easy for me to re-create it.

And – I adhered the pieces back onto the card front with Liquid Glue.  When I got to the sentiment and the small flower – I used Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I finished off with some Peaceful Poppies Sequins (also available on 3 Jan) here and there with Liquid Glue – and the card front was done.

On the inside, I added another Peaceful Moments sentiment in Poppy Parade (would you look at that gorgeous font!?!) to a Whisper White panel.  Around it, I stamped some Painted Poppies in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  Over each flower – I added the solid image in stamped-off-once or twice Poppy Parade.

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Painted Poppies on the front…

…and more of that spectacular Peaceful Poppies DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Oh.  My.  Goodness.  Yes – this is my current MOST FAVORITE SUITE in the new 2020 Jan – Jun Mini Catalog (the catalog-formerly-known-as-Occasions)!!  Painted Poppies and the bundled Painted Labels Dies and the coordinating Peaceful Moments stamp set and bundled Poppy Moments Dies.  All held together by the Peaceful Poppies DSP.  I hope you like!  And you need to add this to your MUST HAVE list right this very second!

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 Jaimie’s page. And you can just click on the names below to go direct to all the blogs!

Stampin’ Up! Cup of Christmas Sneak Peek for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hey y’all – it’s Thursday, so it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!!  Today’s Hop is a color challenge – and I’m excited to see what everyone comes up with –  I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop!

So – each week, we all build our blog posts early and then provide the shortlinks for all the ladies in the hop (that’s how we make our list that y’all can use to hop around and see everyone’s projects!).  THIS week – and I’m going to use “newly-retired-and-sort-of-flailing-around” brain as my excuse – I looked at our color challenge and then promptly got dumb.  I decided to use a new stamp set, called Cup of Christmas (coming on 4 Sept!!), from the 2019 Holiday Catalog to give you a little Christmas sneak peek – even though the color challenge is about as NON-Christmas-y as you can get without a pretty big stretch.  Take a look-see and…you’ll start to see the difficulty I had! 🙂

…and the color challenge.

Doesn’t really SCREAM Christmas, huh? 😉

I also used a sketch from FabFriday for my layout.

I wanted to show y’all this fun stamp set – called Cup of Christmas – and it’s matching (bundled) Cup of Cheer Dies, which is why it was in my head, I guess.  Here’s what’s so fun – this set represents a new line that SU! is bringing to us – the “Reversibles”.  It has two stamps in it that you can…literally…stamp-clean-turn over on the acrylic block-and stamp the mirror image!  These four images were made using just two stamps in the Cup of Christmas set!  Cool beans, huh? 🙂

Okay – now let’s get to the card, shall we?

I took a Whisper White panel and embossed it in the Tufted 3D Embossing Folder, cut it down to size and matted it on Crushed Curry for the card front.

Next, I took a piece of Garden Green DSP from the Regals 6″ x 6″ DSP pack and matted it on Crushed Curry, too.

On a seperate piece of Whisper White, I stamped the Cup of Christmas sentiment in Crushed Curry – then I cut it out with the left-handed die in the Cup of Cheer Die set (yes, there’s a left-handed and a right-handed die to cut those mirror images!!).  I also cut a solid peppermint candy cane.  From a piece of Blushing Bride – I cut the “striped” candy cane die.

After cutting the cup – I stamped it a few times with the poinsettia image from Cup of Christmas in Tuxedo Black – then I colored the flowers with my Blushing Bride and Crushed Curry Stampin’ Write Markers.  I added some doodle-dots around the flowers and sentiment with my Garden Green Stampin’ Write Marker.

I adhered the two candy cane die cuts together and then to the card front with Liquid Glue – then I popped the cup over with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

For the “whipped cream” – I used new Snowfall Accents Puff Paint (coming in the new catty on 4 Sept) and built up some puffy whipped cream.  Then I added a little of the new Shimmery Crystal Effects and sprinkled it with some new Ice Stampin’ Glitter (both also new and available on 4 Sept).

I adhered a short length of new Garden Green 3/8″ Double-Stitched Ribbon (availa 4 Sept) to the cup with Liquid Glue.  The embellishment is two Garden Green holly leaves cut with a die in the Cup of Cheer set – and another poinsettia in Blushing Bride – cut with its matching die.

I tied a little bow from some Whisper White Solid Baker’s Twine and adhered it with a dab of Liquid Glue.  Then I adhered the whole thing to the card front and it was done!

On the inside, on a Whisper White panel, I stamped a second Cup of Christmas sentiment in Crushed Curry and a line of little holly leaves in Garden Green.

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Cup of Christmas holly on the front…

…and some Garden Green DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I really love this Cup of Christmas stamp set – those Reversibles are FUN!! – and the matching Cup of Cheer dies, don’t you?  I think they’re really going to be a heckuvan addition to your Christmas card tool box!  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! 2019 Greek Isles – Cruising…Cruising….and a 2019 Holiday Catalog Sneak Peek!

Happy Monday!  I hope you had a great weekend – and have enjoyed the pictures of Rome!

We’re on Day One – or…two?…of the cruise.  And by the time you get this – Amy, Anna, Wayne and I will be in a cupcake decorating class.

Yes – you read me right! 🙂  We’re all taking a cupcake decorating class on the ship.  I think it will be fun – and am pretty sure we get to eat our creations! 🙂

In anticipation of eating our homework….I started my day doing…

…while watching THIS go by on the starboard side!  Stromboli!  No – in this case it’s a vocanic island – NOT a food!

Oh yea.  We also saw the new Holiday catalog earlier today! 😉

We sort of got a glimpse of it when we arrived to the ship on Sunday.  After the first of many eating sessions, we hit the SU! hospitality room and spun for our first “gift”!  Here’s a look-see at what I won…I WONDER what the stamp set that matches this looks like!! 😉

One of the cool things (among a TON of cool things!!) about our incentive trips is a little thing callled…pillow gifts!

A pillow gift is a….well…GIFT…from Stampin’ Up!  The room stewards bring them and leave them in our rooms in the evenings, usually when we’re at dinner or out just cruising the decks (yes – I did that).  Our first one arrived on Sunday!  OPA!

What is that clipped to the top you ask?!?  Check it!

Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Whoo-hoo!

But wait! Those are…black!?!?  Holy smokes!!  AWESOME-SAUCE!!  You KNOW how I feel about dimensionals!! 🙂

Inside – we discovered a super cool bag – it’s a leather purse/daypack!!  🙂

That’s going to come in really handy, I know – and it’s so pretty!! 🙂

On Monday morning we had our general session where we got to see (and get!!) some of the new goodies in the 2019 Holiday Catalog!  Check out the cover!

This fun Apple Builder Punch has a bundled stamp set called Harvest Hellos – and it can be an apple – or a pumpkin!

The Christmas Gleaming set is part of the Brightly Gleaming Suite – and is bundled with the Gleaming Ornaments Punch Pack (a set of TWO large punches) and some of the prettiest paper ever – the Brightly Gleaming Specialty DSP.

The Toile Christmas set will make Cardinal lovers’ hearts flutter – especially given that there’s a matching set of Christmas Cardinal Dies!!

The final stamp set we got today is the Tags Tags Tags set – with a bundle of dies called Trio of Tags!

And there are some wonderful copper-foil embellishments, too!

So – the cruise is under way!  We’re at sea on Monday and Monday night and then get into Santorini for our first port on Tuesday!  So – more pictures will be coming!  DO watch my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page – I’ve already posted some pictures of the ship and our cabin.  You should expect some cupcake masterpieces in the near future, too! 😉

Stampin’ Up! Silhouette Above The Clouds

Good morning!  We’re on the cusp of the weekend!  Hope you’ve got something fun planned.  Our friend is coming over tomorrow morning to get a refresher on feeding the ladies while we’re gone.

The list is pretty long for something so simple!

I might have some control issues…

I’ve been having a lot of fun with the new See A Silhouette DSP and today is no exception.  For this one, I pulled some swirly – blue – sky-like paper and added some hot air balloons from the Above The Clouds bundle.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one came from this week’s Paper Players sketch challenge.

And “Balloons” was the theme challenge over at the Global Design Project.

I started with the swirly blue paper from the See A Silhouette DSP and matted it on Mango Melody for the card front.

The vertical panel is a piece of Whisper White card stock.  Using the clouds image from Above The Clouds, I stamped the image three times in Balmy Blue.  I added Night of Navy bird silhouettes by the clouds.

On two more pieces of the See a Silhouette DSP, I stamped balloon images in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  Since I didn’t want colored borders (which I’d have gotten if I’d use the Hot Air Balloon Punch) – I fussy cut them – and then tidied up the lines with my Journaling Pen.

I adhered the balloons with Liquid Glue to the Whisper White panel.

I stamped the balloon basket in Balmy Blue (the “fill”) and Night of Navy (the wicker) on Whisper White and punched it with the Hot Air Balloon Punch – then adhered it under the bottom balloon with Liquid Glue.

The sentiment, from Above The Clouds, is stamped on a strip of Whisper White.  I bannerized it with my Paper Snips, edged it with my Balmy Blue Stampin’ Write Marker and adhered it with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added some more Night of Navy birds on the balloons themselves to give the card some depth.  Then I stamped more clouds in Balmy Blue on Whisper White and fussy cut them – and popped them over the balloons with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.  A few Frosted & Clear Epoxy Droplets finished off the card front.

On the inside, I stamped another balloon in Tuxedo Black on a Whisper White panel.  Inside it, I stamped a second Above The Clouds sentiment in Night of Navy.  Then I punched out a balloon from a Sticky Note using the Hot Air Balloon Punch and laid it over the balloon on the panel as a mask.  I stamped some more Balmy Blue clouds and Night of Navy birds.  When I picked up the sticky note mask, the balloon appeared to be floating in front of the clouds!

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another balloon, sentiment, clouds and birds on the front…

…and some more See A Silhouette DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I am really loving this See A Silhouette DSP, aren’t you?  And the Above The Clouds bundle – with its wonderful sentiments and coordinating Hot Air Balloon Punch, is really a good one!  I hope you like!

Sometimes it’s just too hot.

You gotta get close to the fan.

Really.  Close.

From the front – to cool the intake…

And from the rear to cool…well.

Stampin’ Up! THANK YOU THANK YOU EFHARISTO!

Good morning again, y’all!  I just wanted to send a quick….

Yesterday was a big day for me.  I’d gotten the UPS text the day prior saying to expect something from Morris Meetings – they’re our travel agency for SU! Incentive Trips!

So…I was on pins-and-needles.  And…of course…it was the day UPS didn’t deliver until after 8pm.  I’d actually decided they were going to skip me and make me wait another day!

But then….the text came and Finny and I were on the way to the gate!

Not gonna lie – did a little happy-dance when I pulled it out of the bag!

I pushed that golf cart to the limit – yes, we sped along at the high rate of 3 mph! – and got back to the house lickety split.  Figured it would be nice for Wayne and I to open it together!  Considering…

Lookee what was inside…

And THAT contained a really nice leather wallet – with lots of room for business cards and credit cards and probably even our passports!

 

Inside was our flight information – we leave on 3 July (Wayne was like…wait, what?? – that’s like…SOON!) and will be home on the 14th.  We’ve got a few days planned with Amy and her family in Rome ahead of the cruise (and our Russian son Igor will be joining us for that bit!).  We also found our name tags and holders – which are handy for holding our Royal Caribbean door key (see?  we’re like old-hands now, we know what to expect!).  And leather luggage tags.

And of course – the day-by-day schedule.  When we’re at-sea and when there are SU! meetings (where we’ll get to see the new goodies for the holidays!) and when the parties happen!

That one deserves a little more perusing and ooh-ing and aahing, I think!

Anywho – just wanted to share.  And to say THANK YOU all again!  Stampin’ Up! makes these wonderful incentive trips available for any and all Demonstrators to earn!  I absolutely positively could not have made it without y’all!  I appreciate each and every one of you so much!

As they say in Greece  – efharisto!

P.S.  Interested in Joining My Team?  Maybe earning an Incentive Trip of Your Own?  I think you should look into it – even if having a business or earning a trip “isn’t your thing” – the benefits of being a demonstrator are many!  Like…20-25% off everything you buy!  A wonderful Starter Kit filled with SU! products that YOU select – with free shipping and a huge savings to you!  Potential for extra income – could even fund your “habit”! See new catalogs – and get to get new goodies in your hands – before everyone else.  And – of course, no commitment whatsoever!  I welcome hobbyists and business demos alike in the Critters-N-Creatin’ Krew!  Check out the deets right here – and let’s get you started!
