Stampin’ Up! Label Me Bold Video Sneak Peek

Good morning!  Hope your weekend is getting ready to be awesome.  And sort of hoping you’re staying home.  No offense.  But, now that we’ve got our 500 rolls of toilet paper and 16 gallons of industrial cleaning solution – we should all social-distance ourselves and stay out of the germ pool.  And wash our hands!

Me?  I’m taking the self-imposed home-staying as the perfect (and totally sanctioned!) opportunity to get my garden beds ready for planting!  Our last frost date is coming fast and I am ready to see stuff growing in the wild.  And making peppers and tomatoes.  And tomatillos.  And squash!  Whoo-hooo!!

Tonight, though, I’ll clean the dirt out from under my fingernails and go live on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page at 7pm Eastern (HOURS before it’s dark – YEAH!!).  We’ll be making a clean-and-simple spring-y card using the Label Me Bold and Ornate Style stamp sets.  Take a sneaky-peek!

Hmmm – it’s not really as taaaaaall and naaaaarrrroooowww as my picture suggests.  Just regular!

It’s a pretty one, though (she says modestly!), so I hope you can join me!

Tonight.  7pm eastern.  Right here. 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Sweetly Sentimental Lily 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 color 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!

I pulled out my gorgeous Lily Impressions DSP (which, OBTW – you can get for FREE in the Sale-A-Bration flyer with a $50 purchase) and paired it up with (also FREE) the matching Lovely Lily stamp stamp set ($50 level reward) and Lily Pad Dies ($100 level reward).   To those pretty images, I added a So Sentimental sentiment on a Stitched So Sweetly die cut label.  Take a look-see:

Here’s our color palette!

And – since a good sketch challenge is a great way to get some inspiration, I borrowed mine from this week’s Tuesday Morning Sketches!

It also fits perfectly with the photo inspiration from the Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge!

I started with a mostly-Bermuda Bay piece of the Lily Impressions DSP that I embossed in the Stone 3D Embossing Folder (also FREE during Sale-A-Bration, bundled with the Power of Hope stamp set!) and matted it on Basic Black for the card front.

Using my Stitched Shapes dies, I cut two squares from another design in the pack and adhered them with Liquid Glue.

From a third design – mostly in Lovely Lipstick – I cut a Stitched So Sweetly rectangle and adhered it with Liquid Glue.

With an Oval Stitched Shapes die, I cut a Basic Black oval, embossed it in the Stone 3D Folder and popped it onto the card front with Black Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The sentiment, from the So Sentimental set, is stamped in Bermuda Bay on Whisper White and cut with another label die from Stitched So Sweetly.

I cut two short lengths of Granny Apple Green 1/2″ Textured Weave Ribbon and used a couple of Glue Dots to adhere them to the black oval.  Then I popped the sentiment on with Black Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Then it was time to pull out the Lovely Lily stamp set and it’s matching Lily Pad Dies. HINT:  the Lovely Lily stamp set is a photopolymer REVERSIBLE set.  Which means that one side of the stamp is the detailed side – and you just have to flip it over on your block to stamp the “fill” image!  Cool, huh? 🙂

I created a flower by stamping the small flower detailed image in Lovely Lipstick on some of the Lovely Lipstick Lily Impressions DSP and cutting it with the die in the Lily Pad Die set.  I used a second die to cut a detailed flower from Lovely Lipstick card stock.  Finally – I made a leaf by stamping the leaf in Granny Apple Green on Granny Apple Green card stock and cutting it out.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the three pieces together to form the flower!

Before adhering the flower to the card front – I wound some Whisper White Solid Baker’s Twine around my hand several times and twisted it into a figure eight.  Then I used Glue Dots to adhere it to the card front.

Then I used Liquid Glue and a couple of Black Dimensionals to adhere the flower over top.

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

On the inside, I first stamped the detailed flower image in Lovely Lipstick in the corner of a Whisper White panel.  I cleaned the stamp and turned it over, inked the “solid” side in Lovely Lipstick and stamped it one time on my scrap paper.  Then I stamped it into the flower image for the “fill”.   I made a sticky note mask by cutting the flower die from the top of a sticky note – and laid it over top.  Then I stamped the detailed lily pad image in full strength Granny Apple Green and the fill in stamped-off-once Granny Apple Green.

Phew – that was a LOT of words for 4 stamps, huh??  🙂

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another flower and lily pad on the front…

And a bit more Lily Impressions DSP on the envelope flap!

Et Voila!  The So Sentimental stamp set and bundled Stitched So Sweetly dies are a wonderful complement to the Lovely Lily images, Lily Pad die cut flowers and beautiful Lily Impressions DSP, don’t you think?  And – it doesn’t hurt that all the Lily goodies are FREE during Sale-A-Bration!  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Hugs, Prayers and Love from Positive Thoughts!

Happy National Tortilla Chip Day!

Yep – that’s a real thing!

So…you’re duty bound to go your nearest Mexican food restaurant and eat chips and salsa.  Do it for your country! 😉

With that out of the way, and my public service complete for the day, let’s get on with a card, shall we?  I made a little collage for you (shocking, I know!) using the Positive Thoughts stamp set – and the coordinating Nature’s Thoughts Dies (part of the 2020 Coordination Product Release!).  Take a look-see:

The layout was inspired by this week’s CAS(E) This Sketch challenge.

On a piece of Crumb Cake card stock, using my Stamparatus, I stamped the Positive Thoughts sentiment in Mossy Meadow ink.  Then I cut it using the die from Stitched So Sweetly.

I placed a card-front sized piece of Crumb Cake into the Stamparatus and laid the sentiment label in place in the corner.  Then, I stamped the flower from Positive Thoughts in Terracotta Tile.  Then I picked up the label and inked and stamped the image a second time.  I laid the label back down, moved the stamp on the Stamparatus panel – and repeated the process a second time.

I did the same process all over again a couple more times – this time with the leaf image in Mossy Meadow.  I stamped that image twice in each spot without re-inking to help create some more depth.

Then I matted the panel on Terracotta Tile card stock.

I picked up the sentiment label and stamped the feather image in Terracotta Tile a few times without re-inking.

With the dies from the coordinating Nature’s Thoughts die set, I cut some Mossy Meadow and Vellum cardstock leaves.  Using Terracotta Tile cardstock, I spritzed a piece with some water with my Stampin’ Spritzer, then I cut two feathers.  I lightly sponged the edges of the feathers with Terracotta Tile using a Sponge Dauber and curled them slightly.

I laid out all the pieces and parts – including a Linen Thread double-loop bow – and took a picture.

I adhered all the elements – leaves and feathers – with Liquid Glue.  Then I popped the sentiment onto with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the bow with a Glue Dot….

…added a tiny Terracotta Tile butterfly (yes, cut with a die from the Nature’s Promise die set) and a few Terracotta Tile 2019-2021 In Color Faceted Dots.

And…the card front was done!

On the inside, I used the Stamparatus to add a second sentiment from Positive Thoughts in Mossy Meadow to a Crumb Cake panel.  Over that, I added the flower in stamped-off-once Terracotta Tile ink.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Terracotta Tile 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 a few flowers on the front – in Terracotta Tile that I stamped three times without re-inking.

…and I added the leaf image in Mossy Meadow on the back of the envelope.

Et Voila!  Positive Thoughts is one of my very favorite stamp sets in the 2020 Jan – Jun Mini Catalog and I am SO happy to have the matching Nature’s Thoughts Dies!!

…especially that tiny butterfly!  So stinkin’ sweet!!  I hope you like – and will grab these two goodies up quick like the Cadbury Easter bunny! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Heartfelt Heart to Heart Valentine

Well – good day-after-Super-Bowl Sunday (and also – day after Groundhog Day!).  Did you watch the game?  We did.  No dog in this year’s hunt, but…it’s the thing to do, right??  And boy – I’m glad we did!  What a great game!  KC – talk about keeping their heads up and driving thru to the other side.  I was real happy to see them win.  In the immortal words of Sir Alexander Dane: Never give up. Never surrender!

Also – apparently Spring is right around the corner.  Whether your team won or lost – there’s THAT to hang on to!

My card today is another one for Valentine’s Day – this one aimed at a card for a friend (versus a card for a spouse or other romantic interest!).  I used the Heart to Heart stamp set and the Heartfelt Bundle – with it’s cool Heart Punch Pack!  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is inspired by the My Favorite Things Wednesday Sketch Challenge.

And the color palette of grays, red and white comes from this week’s Color Throwdown.

I needed to start with the sentiment strip and the DSP strip so that I’d know where to stamp all my hearts!  A little different order of doing things, huh?

I stamped the sentiment from the Heart to Heart stamp set in Basic Gray on a strip of Whisper White.  Then I snipped a banner end.

I laid the strip on a Whisper White panel and used that as the starting point for the stamped hearts.

With the smaller lacy heart image from the Heartfelt set, I stamped twice in Real Red.  Then I pulled out the small heart images from the Heart to Heart set and stamped them in Real Red, Basic Gray and Smoky Slate.

Then I matted the panel on Real Red to make the card front.

On the side, I added a Real Red-matted strip of Basic Gray paper from the Neutrals 6″ x 6″ DSP, adhering it with Liquid Glue.

Using the scalloped punch from the Heart Punch Pack, I punched out a Real Red foil heart from one of the designs in the From the Heart Specialty DSP pack, and adhered it with Liquid Glue.

I wrapped a piece of Real Red 3/8″ Double-Stitched Satin Ribbon around the card front – securing it in the back with Glue Dots.

I adhered the sentiment with Liquid Glue, and then added Rhinestone Basic Jewels – one on the sentiment strip and several around the stamped hearts.

A good-sized bow from the Real Red 3/8″ Double-Stitched Satin Ribbon, adhered with a Glue Dot, finished off the card front.

On the inside, I added a sentiment from the Heartfelt stamp set in Basic Gray on a Whisper White panel.  Then I stamped Heartfelt and Heart to Heart images in Real Red, Basic Gray and Smoky Slate.

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more hearts on the front…

…and some more Basic Gray Neutrals 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  These two stamp sets – Heartfelt and Heart to Heart – really work in concert to let us make Valentine’s Day cards for friend and lover alike, don’t they?  And I LOVE when punches – like the Heart Punch Pack (bundled with Heartfelt) – will cut images from Designer Series Paper like the From the Heart Specialty DSP.  SOOO stinkin’ handy!!  I hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix


I’ve mentioned a time or two that Katy gets me up early to be fed.

Most mornings, Finn gets up with me.  Out of solidarity.

Also FOMO! 😉

But – like me, the early mornings tend to make him sleepy (“er” than usual) in the afternoons.

Sometimes I’ll take a short power nap in the recliner.

Finn – out of solidarity – usually does the same!

Frequently on the sofa – where he can keep an eye on me.


Just in case.

Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips Jubilee Mother’s Day Card

Happy happy HAAWWWMP DAY!!  Whoo-hooo!!

I’ve got a really pretty card for you today (she says with blushing modesty…..) that is just perfect for Mother’s Day!  It uses two great bundles in the 2020 Jan – Jun Mini Catalog…the Timeless Tulips and Birthday Jubilee bundles.  They go together perfectly!  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from this week’s CAS Colours & Sketches challenge.

And the soft color scheme is from the Sunday Stamps color challenge.

I started with a piece of Very Vanilla that I embossed in the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder and matted on Petal Pink for the card front.

Then I cut two of the detailed die cut panels in the Jubilee Beauty Die Set from Very Vanilla and I adhered them to the card front with Liquid Glue. (It’s the middle die on the magnet in the picture below!)  I adhered the panels closer to the bottom of the card front so that there was about an inch “gap” at the top of the card front.

I used Glue Dots to wrap and secure a piece of Petal Pink 1/4″ Metallic-Edge Ribbon around the panel – over the “seam” between the two panels.

For the bouquet, I stamped the large tulip in the Timeless Tulips stamp set on Very Vanilla – twice in Petal Pink, once in Terracotta Tile, once in stamped-off-once Terracotta Tile and once in stamped-off-once Cherry Cobbler.  So….five flowers.  I punched them all out with the Tulip Builder Punch (bundled with the stamp set for a 10% savings!).

I also stamped five stems in Pool Party on Very Vanilla and fussy cut them.

I laid out the flowers and stems and then got busy sticking them down!  The bottom three flowers are adhered with Liquid Glue and then I popped the final two on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the stems in place.  You can see that I left the bottom parts of the stems sort of sticking up….

The sentiment, from the Timeless Tulips set, is stamped in Terracotta Tile on Very Vanilla.  I cut it with a Rectangle Stitched Die – modifying it to make it a little smaller.  I showed y’all how to do that on my video a couple of days ago….here!

I tied a big-ish loose bow with the Petal Pink 1/4″ Metallic-Edged Ribbon and adhered it with a Glue Dot.

Then I popped my sentiment over the top of the bow with double-stack Dimensionals.  Finally, a few Champagne Rhinestone Jewels finished off the card front.

On the inside, I added a perfect sentiment from the Birthday Jubilee stamp set in Terracotta Tile on a Very Vanilla panel.  I added a few tulips in Terracotta Tile and Petal Pink, with Pool Party stems and leaves.  Then I added a few more of the Champagne Rhinestone Jewels.  Cuz I love them so much! 🙂

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

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got more tulips on the front…

…and a single Petal Pink tulip on the back of the envelope!

Et Voila!  I love this color palette – especially in Timeless Tulips!

The Jubilee Beauty Dies create gorgeous texture on your projects – especially pretty in tone-on-tone Vanilla!  I hope you like!
