Stampin’ Up! Pattern Play Alphabet Video Tutorial Sneak Peek

Morning, y’all!  Happy Saturday!  Weekends are the best – especially now that so many of you are heading back to work.  For a minute, the weekend – the weekday – mox nix!

Can I make a plug for wearing your mask and keeping your distance?  Please, folks.  This is still a “thing” – we can’t act like it isn’t.

Okay – that’s it.  Lecture complete. 😉

Now – tonight – we’ll be perfectly safe and socially distanced – no mask needed!  I’ll be live on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page at 7pm eastern time and we’re going to play with a little of my new-goodies-stash.  Yes – it came and…I got everything organized and labeled and just waiting to play.  So…play I did – and we’re going to make a clean-and-simple card (yes – I am making a CAS card.  Don’t doubt it!).  As part of the new Playing with Patterns Suite,  we’ve got an awesome alphabet die set – called Playful Alphabet – and It.  Is.  Cool!  So…take a sneaky peek!

I don’t do a lot of CAS cards (says Capt Understatement!) so…you’ll wanna see it!  😉

Hope to see you tonight.  7pm Eastern.  Right here.

Finn Fan Fix


On Finn’s birthday, he got a present.

Of course.

Did you doubt it at all??

HE doesn’t care if it looks a LOT like a CHRISTMAS elf…

He spent a little time flipping it around and chewing it and shaking it real good.

Got to break these toys in quick, you know. 🙂

But – as so many of us do to mark the end of another trip around the sun, he spent a little time in quiet contemplation of his life.

Where is he going from here?   What are his life goals?  He’s a relatively young man, yet.

Perhaps a red convertible…..

Stampin’ Up! Prized Peony for the Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop

Happy Happy Hawwmp Day!!  And welcome to another edition of the Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop.  All our blogs go live at the exact same time – regardless of where in the WORLD the hopper is located!   I hope you’ll sit down and spend a little time with us – regardless of where YOU are in the world! 🙂  I know you’re going to see some awesome projects!

This month’s focus is on the new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog!  Favorite things – inspiration – whatever makes us get all warm and fuzzy when we think about it.  I am ALWAYS drawn to the flowers.  Stampin’ Up! does flowers real good – and this catalog is no exception!  One of my favorites is…the stunning Peony Garden Suite!!  I used the Prized Peony bundle and a little bit of Peony Garden DSP.  Plus…the returning Woven Heirlooms stamp set.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one comes from the current Mojo Monday challenge!

I started with a piece of Gray Granite card stock and embossed it in the new Dainty Diamonds 3D Embossing Folder.  Then I cut it down to size and adhered it to the front of my Gray Granite card base with Liquid Glue.

I used one of the white/Gray Granite designs in the Peony Garden DSP and colored it with my Light Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blend and my Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Combo pack.  Then I matted it on Petal Pink and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

The cross-panel is another, Petal Pink-matted piece of the Peony Garden DSP, adhered with more Liquid Glue.

 

Then I adhered a new Square Vellum Doily with Liquid Glue.  Over the top of that, using a Glue Dot, I wound some of the gold twine from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack.

To make the flower – I used the four dies in the Peony Die set and cut one of each from another piece of Peony Garden DSP.

The flower goes together in layers – starting with the smallest of the pieces – and adhering them together with Liquid Glue.  Slide piece 1 into piece 2 – adhere. Slide that into piece 3….and on until all the layers are adhered together.

Tip:  See the arrows pointing the notches in the die cuts?  Line up all the notches as you put it together and it’ll all work out!

Once the parts were all together – I curled the bottom petals with my Bone Folder and used my fingers to “plump” up the rest of them.  Then I stuck Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals here and there amongst the petals.  Tip:  I didn’t take the top cover off the dimensionals – I just wanted the petals supported, not stuck down. 😉

I used a sponge dauber to lightly shade the edges of the petals with Petal Pink ink.  Then I stuck two flower centers cut from So Saffron into the middle of the petals.

I cut several of the leaves die cuts in Soft Sea Foam card stock and Soft Sea Foam paper from the Subtles 6″ x 6″ DSP and adhered them together with Liquid Glue.

Then I built the collage using Liquid Glue to adhere all the pieces and parts.

I tied a bow from Gray  Granite 1/4″ Shimmer Ribbon and adhered it with a Glue Dot.

The sentiment, from Woven Heirlooms, is stamped in Gray Granite on Whisper White and fussy cut.  Then I adhered it with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

A few new Elegant Faceted Gems finished off the card front.

On the inside, I stamped a second Woven Heirlooms sentiment in Gray Granite on a Whisper White panel.  I added two peony images from Prized Peony in Gray Granite and colored them with my Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Combo and Light So Saffron Blend.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Petal Pink mat and into the Gray Granite card base and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another peony on the front…

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

Et Voila!  Isn’t that Peony stunning!?  I promise it’s not as hard as the written explanation makes it sound.  Promise.  We’ll do one soon on a video and you’ll see!  So…go ahead and get this bundle RIGHT NOW – and you’ll be all ready!

The Prized Peony stamp set has great sentiments – I just wanted slightly different ones for this card – and the Woven Heirlooms is one of my favorites!

And the gorgeous Peony Garden DSP – in Petal Pink, Basic Gray, Gray Granite and White – is elegantly beautiful!

I hope you like and are adding this Suite to your Must-Have list!

If you want to recreate this card – all the Stampin’ Up! products you need are listed down below along with the card cuts!

Now that you’ve seen my card, take a minute to hop thru all our projects today.  As I said earlier – we’ve got folks from across the globe…

Stampin’ Up! Birds & Branches Sneak Peek

Good morning!  It’s Monday and, more importantly!, it’s the day before the day before the new catalog goes live!  New Catalog Eve Eve??  Are you so excited?  I know I am – I made my gotta-have-it-RIGHT-NOW list yesterday.  It’s…well.  Looooonnnngggg!  I can tell you, if I wasn’t already a demonstrator, I’d be cashing in on the Bundle Bash Joining Special and getting that 20% discount, for sure!!

Was that a broad enough hint?!  ROFL!!

Anywho…you MIGHT – when you decide to take advantage of the awesome special, pick Birds & Branches as your FREE BUNDLE!  I made my card with it – and some of the new In Colors – for you to take a peek!  It’s not quite a fun-fold, but…it’s just a smidge different than normal.  Take a look-see:

It’s ALSO kinda hard to photograph.  Let’s try this…. the front is shorter than the back – can you see it here?

The layout was inspired by the sketch side of this week’s FUSION Challenge.

And, since I love a Tic-Tac-Toe challenge, I played along there, too!  I went right across the middle row!

I started with a regular Just Jade card base, and trimmed off the bottom 1 1/8″ of the front.

I cut a second piece of Just Jade, the same size as the front of the card base, and embossed it in the new Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder, then adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

Next, I used the pretty circle die in the Birds & More Dies set (bundled with the Birds & Branches stamp set), and cut it from the middle of a piece of Bumble Bee paper from the 2020-2022 In Color 6″ x 6″ DSP.

I cut a piece of Cinnamon Cider cardstock and cut the bottom with the edge die in the Birds & More die set.

I cut another piece of Just Jade and embossed it in the Tasteful Textile 3D folder and adhered it to the Cinnamon Cider mat with Liquid Glue.  Then I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop the Bumble Bee piece over top.

I wrapped a length of Cinnamon Cider 1/4″ Ribbon around the panel, securing it in back with Glue Dots.  Then I popped the whole thing onto the shortened card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the little bird from Birds & Branches in Misty Moonlight on Very Vanilla, then colored him with my Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends combo and cut him with the matching die in the Birds & More Die set.

I created my collage with a couple of wood leaves from the new In Good Taste Elements adhered with Glue Dots, the die cut bird, a double-loop Linen Thread bow, and a Misty Moonlight 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dot.  And that was it for the card front!

On the inside, I stamped two sentiments from the Itty Bitty Birthday stamp set (in the current catalog and carrying over – yeah!!) in Misty Moonlight on a Very Vanilla panel – making sure the bottom sentiment was visible with the card closed.

Slightly over the top sentiment, in stamped-off-once Misty Moonlight, I added my little bird.  Then I used the fill-in stamp over top, in stamped-off-once Crumb Cake.  I also used stamped-off-once Crumb Cake to add little bird-feet and a branch!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Cinnamon Cider mat and into my Just Jade card base, and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got a repeat of the bird image – but in full-strength ink – on the front…

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

Et Voila!  Oh.  My.  Goodness!  How sweet are the little birds – with their teeny tiny bird-feet!! – in this Birds & Branches stamp set??!  And the nest – and eggs!!  Add in the gorgeous circle and edge dies in the bundled Birds & More Dies set and…we have a winner, y’all!

 

I hope you like and have added this one to YOUR long gotta-have-it-right-now list! 😉

When I saw the colors for this week – I saw flowers.  I know.  Shocker.  Mary used flowers! 😳😳😳  I pulled out the wunnermus Blossoms in Bloom stamp set and my Stamparatus and got after it!  Take a look-see:

Yeah, I see it – I’m kind of on a roll with the stamp-an-image-cut-part-of-it-out-and-pop-it-back-in thing this week.  😉

And here’s our color challenge!

The layout for this one is from this week’s Global Design Project sketch challenge.

I started with a panel of Whisper White that I placed in my Stamparatus.  Then, I used the Stamparatus to stamp the big, bold blossoms from Blossoms in Bloom in Mango Melody.

I pulled the cardstock out of the Stamparatus and added some smaller flowers around the main image in stamped-off-once So Saffron.  I also added some stamped-off-once Old Olive leaves here and there.

I added flower centers in So Saffron and some in Mango Melody.

Then, I used the larger label die in the Stitched So Sweetly die set to cut the center out of the panel.

Using Liquid Glue, I adhered the panel to a Mango Melody mat – and then to an Old Olive mat.  I popped the die cut back in place with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere a length of Old Olive ribbon from the Ornate Floral Ribbon Combo Pack.

The sentiment, from Blossoms in Bloom, is stamped in Old Olive on Whisper White and cut with the narrowest Stitched Rectangle Die.  Then I popped it on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I used my Fine-Tip Glue Pen to add some clear gems from the new Flowers For Every Season Gems pack – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped a whole cottage garden’s worth of flowers onto a Whisper White panel using the small flowers in the stamp set.   Then, cuz I like it so much, I pulled out Many Mates and added that sweet sentiment in Old Olive.

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Blossoms in Bloom flowers and leaves on the front…

…and on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  How gorgeous are these Blossoms in Bloom flowers?  I love the different “gardens” that we can make with one stamp set!  And – although I didn’t use it on this card – the bundled Many Layered Blossoms Die set is a showstopper!!

I hope you like….and have added this to your list.  OR…maybe THIS will be the bundle you pick as your FREE BUNDLE when you join between 3 Jun and 30 Jun!? 😉

Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern Sneak Peek Hello!

Good morning!  In “normal” times (different from the “new-normal” times we’re in right now), I’d say – whoo-hoo for a short week!  I suppose that it’s still true – even if you’re working from home – you DO only have to do it for four days and then there’s another weekend!  Which means you only have to put your “work jammies” on for three more days.  I’m assuming you’re already “dressed” for the day! 😉

My card today is all about the new Forever Greenery suite – with its Forever Fern stamp set bundled with the Forever Flourishing die set and the Forever Greenery DSP – in the 2020-2022 Annual Catalog.  It’s one of my favorites (which, to be fair) is a pretty long list.  I have a LOT of faves in this catalog!  For this one, I added a few pieces of the beautiful Forever Gold Laser-Cut Specialty Paper.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one was inspired by the sketch side of this week’s FUSION challenge.

I started by stamping one of the pretty leaf images from the Forever Fern stamp set in Shaded Spruce on a piece of Soft Sea Foam cardstock.  I also stamped the little splatter image in Soft Sea Foam all about, here and there!

Then I embossed the panel in one of the new Greenery Embossing Folders – the one with the leaves on top and bottom…being a Mini folder – it left about 1″ of non-embossed cardstock on the left side of the panel.

Which worked perfectly for my design!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere a strip of Forever Greenery DSP on the left side of the panel and to adhere the panel to its Shaded Spruce mat.  Then I covered the seam with a length of Just Jade 1/4″ In Color Ribbon, securing it in the back with Glue Dots.

I cut a Shaded Spruce leaf die cut with one of the gorgeous dies in the Forever Flourishing Die set, then I used Liquid Glue to adhere it, and a couple of laser-cut leaves from the Gold Forever Laser-Cut Specialty Paper.

On another piece of Soft Sea Foam, I stamped a Forever Fern sentiment in Shaded Spruce.  Around it, I added those splatters again in Soft Sea Foam.  Then I cut it out with the larger circle die cut in the new Tasteful Labels set (also coming on 3 Jun in the new catalog).

I tied a quick double loop bow from the wonderful gold twine in the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack and adhered it with a Glue Dot.  Then I adhered the sentiment over top with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added some Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels here and there and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped the big leaves image in Shaded Spruce on a Soft Sea Foam panel.  Next to it, I added a smaller image in stamped-off-once Shaded Spruce.  Then I added some more Soft Sea Foam splatters and Champagne Rhinestones.

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Forever Fern leaves in Shaded Spruce on the front…

…and more of the Forever Greenery DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I love love love this Forever Fern stamp set and it’s wonderful bundled Flourishing Forever Die Set!!

And the Forever Greenery DSP is spectacular!

I hope you like – and are counting down the days till you can get it all for yourself!  And – FYI – you can get this bundle, along with even MORE gorgeous stamp sets and bundles in my Just Cuz They’re Beautiful Special Bundle!

On most mornings, I leave Finn on a “stay” in the barn while I lead the ladies around to let them out in the pasture.

Some days, I feel like maybe I’m being watched

Since I know for SURE it couldn’t be Finn watching me – cuz of how he’s in the barn where I left him…I know it’s just paranoia….

Or…is it?

THAT does not look like a “stay”….

Watcha gonna do when he comes for you…for you….

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! Celebrate Sunflowers 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!

So – yesterday afternoon (okay – it was more like dinner time, cuz I’d been playing with my new goodies and doing some craft room organzing!) the power went out.  Right in the middle of making my card.

It wasn’t looking good, my peeps!

But – I pushed on thru – and created a card for you with a new bundle that I’ve been itching to get my hands on since I first saw it.  The Celebrate Sunflowers bundle!  Take a look-see:

And here’s our sketch!

You guys should have seen me – check it out…

I’m not going to say I’m dedicated but…c’mon!  Battery operated lantern!?! 😉  I figure this is how Laura Ingalls Wilder’s craft room would have looked if she’d been Blogging on the Prairie! 😉

So – I started with a piece of Bumble Bee paper in the brand new World of Good Specialty DSP (available on 3 Jun!) that I embossed in the wonderful – also coming on 3 Jun – Old World Paper 3D Embossing Folder (makes it look like I wadded it up and smoothed it out!) and matted on Cinnamon Cider card stock.

I cut a Very Vanilla Stitched Rectangle Die and embossed it in the Scripty 3D Embossing Folder.  Then I adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I used some Glue Dots to adhere the brand-spanking-new Antiqued Corners & Slides to three of the corners.  Y’all – I don’t have the words to express how much I LOVE these little embellishments!!

For the flower and leaves, I first stamped the big Celebrate Sunflower flower in Crushed Curry on Very Vanilla – and cut it with the solid die in the Sunshine Dies.  I used the detailed flower die to cut a Crushed Curry flower and adhered it with Liquid Glue.

I stamped two large leaves in Mossy Meadow on Very Vanilla and painted them with my Clear Wink of Stella – pulling the ink into the leaf.  I cut two detailed leaves from Mossy Meadow and adhered them with Liquid Glue.  I cut some solid leaves from Cinnamon Cider and Mossy Meadow.

The sentiment, from Celebrate Sunshine, is stamped in Mossy Meadow on Very Vanilla.  I used a Stitched Rectangle Die – moving it to create a slightly longer die to accommodate the length of the sentiment.

Then it was time to build my collage and take my picture.

By…lantern-light! 🙂

I adhered the leaves with Liquid Glue.  Then I added a length of 5/8″ Burlap Ribbon (Boy – I am REALLY going to miss this! 🙁 ).  Then I popped the sunflower on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  The sentiment is adhered with Dimensionals and Liquid Glue

The finishing touch was a Bumble Bee enamel dot from the new 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dots.

On the inside, I added a second sentiment from Celebrate Sunshine in Mossy Meadow to a Very Vanilla panel. In the corner, using the Stamparatus and the Marker-to-Rubber inking technique to color and stamp the small flower from the set in Crushed Curry and Mossy Meadow. I used my Clear Wink of Stella and Light Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blend – then added some little Soft Suede dots with my Stampin’ Write Marker.

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

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got another small sunflower on the front…

…and more of the World of Good Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I absolutely love love LOVE this Celebrate Sunflowers bundle, don’t you?  And with the addition of some wonderful goodies from the World of Good Suite – like the Old World Paper 3D Embossing Folder, World of Good Specialty DSP and some Antiqued Corners & Slides and….we’ve got a winner!!  Of course, you can get the Scripty 3D Folder and the Burlap Ribbon (while it lasts!) right now – the rest?  Got to wait until 3 June!  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Ornate Positive Thoughts for the Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop

Happy Happy Hawwmp Day!!  And this is a SPECIAL Hawwmp Day, indeed!!

My friend Angie McKenzie asked me if I’d like to join her fun new Blog Hop group called the Around the World Wednesday Blog Hop.  The idea is that – regardless of where in the WORLD a hopper is – all the blogs will be live at the exact same time!  How.  Fun.  Is.  That??

Of course, I said yes!  And this is the FIRST of our monthly blog hops!  Whoo-hoo!  We’ve got hoppers from Austria to Australia….Japan to New Zealand!  I hope you’ll sit down and spend a little time with us – regardless of where you’re at in the world – I know you’re going to see some awesome projects!

Now – each month we’ll have a theme for the hop – this one is All Things Crafty – Must Haves For Your Creativity!  Which is kind of wide open.  So…I decided to keep it simple and go with things/styles I couldn’t live without.  If you know me at all – you know Dimensionals would be on that list!  And my reverse tweezers.  And…collage cards.  I pulled all that together and used the Positive Thoughts stamp set along with a little help from the new Ornate Thanks stamp set and Ornate Layers Dies.  And – sorry – I also used the not-available-right-now-but-will-be-back-in-the-next-Annual-Catalog Nature’s Thoughts die set.  Take a look-see!

The idea for this one came from a card that we made at Sandra Hernandez’s Spring STAMPede last month…

I love that card – it is SO right in my wheelhouse – and I just notched it up a level or two!

To begin, I cut an Ornate Layers frame from a piece of Crumb Cake.  Then I used some re-positionable adhesive – these are little dots on a tape runner – to adhere the frame over a Crumb Cake panel.

I used my Stamparatus to stamp the Positive Thoughts leaves (in Mossy Meadow and stamped-off-once Mossy Meadow), the flower (in Blackberry Bliss), the butterfly (in Night of Navy) and the little fluer-de-do (in Crumb Cake) all over the two panels.  Here’s how – I stamped an image with both pieces in place – then lifted the frame off – stamped the image again in the exact same place (thanks to the Stamparatus) – replaced the frame – moved the stamp – and repeated.  That eliminated the “gap” that you get when you stamp onto two layers!

Next, I ran the bottom panel thru the die cutting/embossing machine in the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder.  Then I matted the panel on Night of Navy.

I popped the frame onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals – making sure to line up all the images!

On another piece of Crumb Cake card stock, I stamped the sentiment from Positive Thoughts in Blackberry Bliss.  Then I cut it with a label die in the Stitched So Sweetly Die set.  I added a stamped-off-once Mossy Meadow leaf and a stamped-off-once Blackberry Bliss flower and popped it onto the card front with more Dimensionals.

I stamped the butterfly in Night of Navy on Crumb Cake and cut it with the die from Nature’s Thoughts.  If you have this die set from when it was available as part of the Coordination Product Release – that’s awesome!  If not – you’ll be able to get it again when the new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog comes out in June!

I adhered the butterfly with a Stampin’ Dimensional onto the card front – letting it overlap the sentiment.  With the Nature’s Thoughts dies, I cut two of the larger leaves in Mossy Meadow and adhered them to the bottom right corner of the sentiment with Liquid Glue.

Using those reverse tweezers, I tied a Linen Thread double-loop bow and adhered it over the die-cut leaves with a Glue Dot.  Then I added a few Night of Navy Holiday Rhinestone Basic jewels and the card front was done!

On the inside, I used Ornate Thanks and stamped a large sentiment in Blackberry Bliss on a Very Vanilla panel.  The smaller sentiment is in Night of Navy.  I added some leaves (in stamped-off-once Mossy Meadow), a couple of flowers (in stamped-off-once Blackberry Bliss) and some full-strength Night of Navy butterflies.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Night of Navy mat and into my Crumb Cake card base, adhered the card front with more Liquid Glue – and the card was done!

My very Vanilla Medium Envelope got more Positive Thoughts leaves, flowers and butterflies on the front…

…and another leaf on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I love this Positive Thoughts stamp set so much – and hope the fact that the Nature’s Thoughts dies are carrying over into the Annual Catalog menas that the stamp set is, too! 🙂  And – Ornate Thanks….how useful can one stamp set be?!?  I think this card is going to go to the Stamp-N-Storage Bee a Blessing Card Drive (you can read about that down below!) and this stamp set was perfectly perfect for the job.  I hope you like!

Now that you’ve seen my card, take a minute to hop thru all our projects today.  As I said earlier – we’ve got folks from across the globe…

Stampin’ Up! Ornate Garden Early Release Suite Now Available!

Happy Happy HAWWWMP Day!  And – Happy “Go-Live” Day to the new Ornate Garden Suite!!  Whoo-hoo!

I’ve been showing you lots of samples of this cool new suite – you know it’s an Early Release from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog, right?  And it’s awesome!

I’ve got another card for you today, using the Ornate Style and Ornate Thanks stamp sets, a little of the Ornate Garden Specialty DSP and the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder.  Take a look-see:

This fun layout is inspired by this week’s CAS(E) This Sketch challenge.

And the color palette is from the Fab Friday color challenge.

I started with a panel of Whisper White.  I ran just the right side – about 1 1/2″ – thru the die cutting machine in the new Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder.

Then I used my Paper Trimmer to cut a triangle of the gold-foil embossed Ornate Garden Specialty DSP – it’s about 1 1/2″ across at the top and 5 1/8″ long – cut on a diagonal to create a point.

I used my Daffodil Delight and Mango Melody Stampin’ Blend Combo Packs and the Light Pumpkin Pie Blend to color the flowers.  Then I used Liquid Glue to adhere it to the card front.

Then I matted the panel on Mango Melody.

Using Glue Dots on the back of the card front, I adhered two lengths of Terracotta Tile ribbon from the Ornate Garden Ribbon Combo Pack.

On a piece of Whisper White, I stamped one sentiment from Ornate Thanks in Terracotta Tile and a second sentiment in Pumpkin Pie.  Then I cut it with a Stitched Rectangle Die.

I popped the sentiment on with Stampin’ Dimensionals, added a small Gilded Gem and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a third sentiment from Ornate Thanks in Pumpkin Pie on a Whisper White panel.  In each corner, I added a flourish in Terracotta Tile.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Mango Melody mat and into my Pumpkin Pie card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Terracotta Tile flourishes on the front…

…and more Blends-colored Ornate Garden Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  SO many ways to put all the pieces, parts, images and sentiments together in this spectacular new Ornate Garden Suite!  From the Ornate Thanks and Ornate Style stamp sets, to the bundled Ornate Layers and Ornate Borders dies…and the gorgeous Ornate Garden Specialty DSP is stunning!  I hope you like and – are rushing to get yours ordered right now!

Here’s a quick video about this cool new Suite! 🙂03.03.20_TH_VIDEOSCREEN1_ORNATE_GARDEN_NA

In these chaotic and troubled times, I’m glad that we have our own ZEWS. Zombie Early Warning System.

Behold.  ZEWS Sentry – Deploy.

ZEWS 1 – in strategic position.

That locale was carefully selected by ZEWS 1 – it offers 180 degrees of overwatch of both the house and the barn.  The road behind him – an obvious ingress point for zombies – he covers with his cat-like hear-stuff-sneaking-up-behind-him senses.

He remains ever-vigilant.

His request for a ghillie-suit was obviously denied and he sort of sticks out.  But…stealth is not his weapon of choice.

Vocalizing the threat is his forte.

And a deep suspicion – which is good for a ZEWS Sentry.  Cuz Zombies are…everywhere.  And well disguised.

Maybe…

Definite possibility.

Is there any doubt??


Vigilance is key.  ZEWS 1 must remain alert at all times.  It’s in the code.

Wargaming is important, though.  Critical to think thru the steps if the hoard should lumber over the hill.  You KNOW they’d come from the back.

Zombies are pretty smart.

Not everyone knows that.

Wargaming COULD be misconstrued for napping on duty.

It’s not.

Napping.

He’s deep in strategery-izing….

Stampin’ Up! Label Me Bold Ornate Style Video Tutorial for The Paper Players

Hey y’all – it’s Sunday, which means I’ve got another fun challenge for you from the Paper Players – it’s a Clean-and-Simple Challenge from Joanne this week to help jump-start your creative mojo!  I hope you’ll come and play along.  🙂

If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video, I appreciate you spending some of your weekend with me!  If not, but you’d like to see the replay on YouTube…here ’tis!

I pulled out the fun and simple (to me!) Label Me Bold stamp set from the 2020 Jan – Jun Mini Catalog and used its sentiments to work with the image-only Ornate Style stamp set.  Which YOU will be able to get on 1 Apr!  Take a look-see:

I know, I know – I keep using that new daisy image.  I can’t help it very much – I just love it!! And so will you when you get your hands on it! 😉

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

And the layout for this one is from this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

I started with a piece of Whisper White cardstock that I embossed in the Basket Weave 3D Embossing Folder and matted on Granny Apple Green cardstock to make the card front.

To make the little strip element of the sketch, I used some SNAIL to adhere a length of Granny Apple Green 1/2″ Textured Weave Ribbon.

The DSP strip is a piece of Daffodil Delight Brights 6″ x 6″ DSP, also matted on Granny Apple Green and adhered with Liquid Glue.

The art is the fantastic Ornate Style daisy, stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, on Whisper White and cut out with a rectangle Stitched So Sweetly die – how MUCH do you love this die set?!?

I used watercolor pencils from the Watercolor Pencils Assortment 2, in Granny Apple Green for the leaves.  Then the flower itself is colored in Daffodil Delight and Calypso Coral (Assortment 1) with a little Crushed Curry (Assortment 2) in the middle.

Then I used Liquid Glue on the bottom half and Dimensionals on the top half to adhere it to the card front.

On a small piece of Whisper White, I stamped the Label Me Bold sentiment in Granny Apple Green and gave it a quick fussy cut.  Then I popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

A Granny Apple Green Glitter Enamel Dot finished off the card front.

On the inside, I stamped another sentiment from Label Me Bold in Granny Apple Green on a Whisper White panel.  Next to it I added another pretty little Ornate Style daisy!

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another Ornate Style daisy on the front…

…and a little more Daffodil Delight Brights 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Label Me Bold is…for me…a flyover stamp set.  Easily overlooked.  BUT – it’s got a bunch of sentiment options for different occasions presented in a clean-and-simple style – so…don’t flyover it – get it before the end of the catalog!  And – I know you’re excited for Ornate Style and it’s bundled Ornate Layers Dies.

Be looking for those in the Ornate Garden Suite on 1 April.  I hope you like!

If you want to recreate this card – all the Stampin’ Up! products you need are listed down below along with the card cuts!

Nuthin’ like a good game of grab-wiggle-butt with your dad when the rain FINALLY stops!!

Somebody PLEASE GET THE DOG!!

Yes – he loves the Get The Dog game.  It’s ALMOST as good as the Who Can Keep the Stick Away from the Parents Game.  Or the ever popular – Zoom-Skid-Slam.  Which frequently involves the bowling over of the aforementioned parents cuz braking is HARD!!

All good games – YOU should try them!
