Stampin’ Up! All Dressed to Impress for The Paper Players

Good Sunday morning, y’all!  Hope you’re staying warm this weekend – we’re back into a winter-y cycle.  Cold enough for covers again.  Bleh.  But…no snow.  No “-” in front of the temperature so…there’s that! 🙂

Be sure to take advantage of my Weight-loss Milestone Ordering Special, okay?  It’s only around thru Tuesday so you need to get hopping!  Let my loss be your gain!

If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video, I sure appreciate you spending part of your weekend with me!  If not, but you’d like to watch the instant-ish replay, here ’tis!

The inspiration for this card set comes from this week’s Paper Players theme challenge and the Dressed To Impress bundle and gorgeous Best Dressed DSP was the perfect choice!  Take a look-see:

And here’s this week’s Paper Players challenge!  I hope you’ll join us and show us your projects! 🙂

Now – admittedly, the card holder isn’t particularly clean-and-simple!  THAT comes into play with the 6 notecards and envelopes tucked inside!! 🙂

The holder is easy to make – it’s cut from two pieces of the Best Dressed DSP for the “body” of the purse/tote.  Some Old Olive (Mossy Meadow in the video and picture below) cardstock makes up the ties and the pocket on the outside.

All of which have dies in the All Dressed Up Dies set!!

I put the tote together with Tear & Tape Adhesive – and used that as well to secure the handles to the bag.  I used some Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop the pocket on the outside of the bag – then “filled” it with a bottle of perfume fussy cut from one of the DSP designs, and a stamped-and-die-cut lipstick (in Mint Macaron and Tuxedo Black).  Tip – you need to cut the lipstick down so that it fits into the pocket!


I cut one of the smaller buttons from some Gold Foil and stuck it on with Liquid Glue.  The sentiment, from Dressed to Impress, is stamped in Lovely Lipstick on Whisper White, cut with the label die from All Dressed Up and adhered with more Liquid Glue.

A Glue Dot adheres a Petal Pink Best Dressed Tassel and a little bow tied from Mint Macaron 1/8″ Sheer Linen Ribbon.

I made a total of 6 little note cards and envelopes to go inside this sweet little tote.  Some I made using the Best Dressed 3″ x 3″  Note Cards & Envelopes.  I ran out of the notecards, so I also created some with 3″ x 6″ Whisper White pieces, scored and folded at 3″.  Fortunately, I had more envelopes – love those scalloped flaps!

The trick to making a “set” – to me – is to keep the colors cohesive from card to card.  So….all the sentiments were stamped in Lovely Lipstick.  Cards were coordinated with their envelopes….  I used Mint Macaron “dots” on all the cards.   And kept the color palette simple…

Did you know that you can approximate Purple Posy ink with stamped-off-once Highland Heather?  No?  Well…now you do! 🙂

I made two of each “color” of note cards – you saw the Petal Pink set up above.  There’s also a Daffodil Delight set…

And the aforementioned Purple Posy…. aka stamped-off-once Highland Heather!

Let’s talk sentiments, shall we?  All the note card fronts have a sentiment from the Dressed to Impress stamp set.  On the inside – I used sentiments from the Sending You Thoughts set in the Sale-A-Bration Flyer (this is a FREE-with-$50-order level gift!).

If you look closely, you’ll see I decorated each of the envelope flaps with a Gold Foil die cut button from the All Dressed Up Dies – adhered with Liquid Glue.  Atop the button is a tiny bow from Mint Macaron 1/8″ Sheer Linen Ribbon – adhered with a Glue Dot!

Now – in case it’s not obvious – these are not suitable for mailing as they sit.  Right?  You’d need to put them in an A2 size envelope (or some USPS-approved envelope) to mail them.  Or stick them inside a gift box.  Or keep them in your purse to randomly hand out to folks who deserve a little thank you! 🙂

Et Voila!  Wouldn’t this little All Dressed Up purse – filled with 6 Dressed to Impress note cards and envelopes great for Thank You’s, Congratulations and Birthday! – make an awesome gift?  I hope you like!

If you want to recreate this set – all the Stampin’ Up! products you need are listed down below.  Hint:  if you buy the Dressed To Impress Bundle, the Best Dressed DSP and the Mint Macaron 1/8″ Sheer Linen Ribbon – you’ll reach the Level 1 reward threshold for Sale-A-Bration and you can “complete” your set with the free Sending You Thoughts stamp set!!

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!

Finn Fan Fix


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.
