Stampin’ Up! Perfectly Penciled & Sending Smiles Note to Say Hello

Good morning and happy Memorial Day.  I hope you get to enjoy the day with your family and friends – and spend a moment or three thinking of the men and women who never came home.

I have an admin note for you!  For those of you who do join or plan to join my Zoom the Craftroom sessions – I’m officially canceling today’s session!!  Between the holiday and folks having plans – and my ever GROWING list of things to do between now and Saturday – let’s just call it a day, shall we??  And – so that you can plan your week and month – let’s go ahead and cancel all Zoom the Craftroom sessions between now and the 20 June session, okay?  I’ll be out of town for a couple of weeks and don’t know what the internet will support.  So…rather than have everyone wondering where I am….I’m making the decision now!  Sorry for any disappointment, y’all!  I’ll be back on the 20th, though, so hope to see you then! 🙂

Now – my card today is one that I really like.  It’s got pretty flowers & pops of color from the Sending Smiles bundle (a heavy favorite for me!!) atop black-and-white Perfectly Penciled DSP.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Wildlife Wonder He’s the Man with Video Tutorial

Happy half-way-thru-the weekend.  Or…a third of the way, depending on whether you have tomorrow off or not!

Regardless – please remember what tomorrow is all about, would you??  Some Gave All.  🙂

My card today is a card with a masculine flair – from the cool Wildlife Wonder stamp set.  I used some He’s The Man DSP for the base of the card.  And it shouldn’t come as a surprise that the new Stylish Shapes dies play a pretty important role!  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! A Fish & A Wish Here For You Card with Video Tutorial

Good morning and happy Friday!  Hope you’ve had a great week and have something fun planned for the weekend!  We’re getting ready to go to Colorado next weekend so…we’re busy!!  And, of course, we’ve been “shocking” our well.  Yes – it was a whole thing.  If you were on my video with me yesterday, you know what I’m talking about.  If not…well.  Hope you never have to shock your well.  🤦‍♀️

My card today uses a sweet little punch bundle called A Fish & A Wish.  What?  Haven’t seen it?  Haven’t heard of it?  It’s kind of a flyover set but it’s super cute and I really enjoyed working with it!  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Pop-Up Sending Smiles & Celebrating You Birthday Card with Video Tutorial

Hey y’all – good morning at the half-way point of the weekend!  Hope it’s going well so far!  Yesterday ended up being work-on-fence day – not tomato molly-coddling day, so…hoping to be doing that today!

I DID make a foray into the “gram” yesterday – yes, I made an Instagram reel for the first time!  I know – I am, indeed, the Queen of the Social Media.

Said no one…EVER!  But – I did it!  If you’re on the “gram” go find me (Stampnslingers) and see what you think.  Don’t laugh at it – I’ll get better.

Eventually 😳😳😳

My card today uses a very sweet a la carte die set (that’s a die set that is stand-alone – not associated with a stamp set) called the Pretty Pop-Up Dies.  I grabbed a couple of sentiments from Celebrating You and one of my favorite flower images from Sending Smiles.  The host-exclusive Design a Daydream DSP set the stage.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Sunny Splash Slimline Card with Video Tutorial

Happy Friday!!  Whoo-hoo!  If you’re like me (yes, even now that I’m retired!) the weekend is stretching out ahead of you and it feels like it’s such a LONG time before you have to go to work again!  Surely it’s not just me?!  That feeling is so wonderful, isn’t it!?  I hope you get to enjoy the time “off”! 🙂

I’ve got a cool card for you – it’s a Slimline card – and it’s perfect as we head into hot (aka “pool” season) time of the year!  The sweet little Sunny Splash stamp set features fun bathing suits and sentiments – I added some 2022-2024 In Color DSP and a little texture with the Artistic Mix Decorative Masks.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Chic Charming Sentiments Mini Pocket Envelope Gift Card Holder with Video Tutorial

Good morning and happy middle-of- May!  Can you even believe it!? I can – because I have flowers coming on my tomatoes – and I put fly masks on the ponies for the first time yesterday.  It’s summer, baby!! 🙂

My fun-fold card today features some seashells – so…a beachy theme.  Sort of.  Well – maybe not completely.  I used the pretty Texture Chic Specialty DSP as the basis but…then I pulled in the a la carte Mini Pocket Envelope Dies and…the amazing Charming Sentiments bundle.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Abigail Cottage Rose Birthday Card with Video Tutorial

Good morning on the edge of the weekend!  Do you have fun plans?  I’ll be spending part of the weekend attending (virtually speaking!) a Stampin Up event for Incentive Trip earners who…thank you COVID!…didn’t get to do the planned incentive trip this year!  I know it’s going to be fun – we’ve already gotten a really cool gift from them – and I’ll share pictures soon!  So…I’m looking forward to seeing what they’ve got in store for us! 🎉🎉🎉

My card today uses the so pretty Cottage Rose Bundle with the could-this-be-any-more-wonderful Abigail Rose DSP!  And…we’ve got some amazing Natural Finish 7/8″ Ribbon from the suite – that you can color OR stamp!!  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Let’s Set Sail Best Day Fun Fold with Video Tutorial

Happy Friday, y’all!  We’re on the cusp of another weekend and…Mother’s Day!  Hope you did better than I did this year – I am fairly certain that the gift I sent will NOT be there in time.  I’d blame the Post Office (that’s pretty easy!) but…since I didn’t mail it until Wednesday…it’s all on me!  Hopefully she’ll give me a pass and will like it anyway! 🤦‍♀️

My card today reminds me of Maui.  When we were there last year, we went on a catamaran to go snorkeling.  On the way back to the marina – they shut off the engines and we went under sail for a while.  It.  Was.  Amazing.  And I want to do it again right now!!  Since that’s not going to happen any time soon – this fun fold card from the Let’s Set Sail bundle with a little “sunset” and “ocean” courtesy of the Hues of Happiness DSP will be the next best thing!  Take a look-see:

Happy Happy Hawwwmp Day, y’all!!  How was yesterday – do you have lots of new goodies on the way?!?  I sure do – a BUNCH of share paper that will be here on Thursday AND…my own new catalog order!  I am a little afeared of how the house is going to look with all the piled up Stampin’ Up! boxes!

You might want to watch for a YouTube notification on Thursday…if my order arrives at any sort of decent time, I’ll try to go live and give y’all a look!  Be sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel – and then select All Notifications (click the “bell”!) so that you’ll know when I go live! 🙂
