Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Beauty and Boughs Video Sneak Peek

Good morning!  By the time you read this I’ll have walked 3+ miles on the treadmill and started chopping paper.

Retired!?  Hmmmm….. 😉

I’m planning to take a break from chopping and packaging shares tonight to spend a little time with you if you’re up for a little video?  I’ve got a sweet little number for us to make using the Nature’s Beauty stamp set and…some other little goodies from the 2019 Holiday Catalog!  We’ll start up at 7pm Eastern on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page!  And – here’s a little sneaky peek!

Hope to see you then!

Tonight.  7pm.  Eastern.  Right here!

Stampin’ Up! Hammered Metal So Many Stars Sneak Peek

Good morning, y’all!  Hope your long weekend is going well – guess what??  Tomorrow is a HOLIDAY!!  Whoo-hoo!  Whatever your plans – getting out-and-about or just….RESTING!…enjoy them!

If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video, I appreciate you spending part of your 3-Day weekend with me!  If not – but you’d like to watch the Memorex version, here ’tis on YouTube!

I pulled out the fantabulous new So Many Stars stamp set and bundled Stitched Stars Dies, the Itty Bitty Christmas set and the new Hammered Metal 3D Folder to make a 2019 Holiday Catalog sneak peek for you.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one was inspired by the sketch challenge over at Fab Friday this week!

I started by embossing a Crumb Cake card stock panel in the new Hammered Metal 3D Embossing Folder (which will be available in the catalog on Wednesday, 4 Sept!).  Then I brushed the edges of the panel with the new Celestial Copper Delicata Metallic Ink Pad.  I went over the top of that with the Golden Glitz Delicata Metallic Ink Pad.  Then I matted the panel on Cherry Cobbler.

I used SNAIL to adhere two lengths of new Shaded Spruce/Gold 3/8″ Striped Ribbon across the panel.

With the Stitched Stars Dies – I cut a bunch of stars and flourishes from Wrapped In Plaid 6″ x 6″ DSP, Gold Glimmer Paper and Shaded Spruce card stock.

Using my Simply Scored tool, I scored the large plaid star and gently creased the score lines to create a 3-D star.

I used Liquid Glue on the various stars to adhere some together in stacks – and then adhered them to the card front.  The large plaid star is adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped an Itty Bitty Christmas sentiment (also new in the 2019 Holiday Catalog) in Cherry Cobbler on a Crumb Cake strip.  Then I “dipped” each edge of the strip with the Celestial Copper Delicata Metallic Ink Pad and popped it onto the card front with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a Linen Thread double-loop bow with a couple of Glue Dots and then popped on three Star Designer Elements – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped a sentiment from the So Many Stars set in Cherry Cobbler on a Very Vanilla panel.  Around and over it, I stamped the scattered stars image from the same set in Celestial Copper Delicata Metallic Ink.  I also added a couple of the larger stars in the Golden Glitz Delicata Metallic Ink.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat and into my Crumb Cake card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got more of the So Many Stars stars in Copper and Gold on the front…

…and I added more of the Wrapped in Plaid 6″ x 6″ DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Itty Bitty Christmas and So Many Stars!  What a great complement to each other!  And, of course, no one can deny the spectacular-ness of the Wrapped In Plaid 6″ x 6″ DSP!  You can get it all in only 3 more days – the 4th will be here before you know it! 🙂 I hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix


Cerah – my older pony – has to wear…

…a grazing muzzle when she’s out during the day.  It’s a useful tool – helps her to not eat her body weight in grass every day.  Which is a very good thing for a Haflinger!

SHE hates the muzzle.  As one might easily imagine!

Finn – on the other hand is…fascinated by it.

He sniffs it – licks the outside – sticks his head in it…and licks the inside…

 

…and is quite disappointed when I am finally able to pull it away from him to hang it up for the night!

These are the things that just…make me wonder….why?  Why, Finn…what could the attraction possibly be?!?

Finn’s birth mom sent me a picture yesterday.

There’s much cuteness, so…figured I’d share it.

Right??

He’s a little bigger now, but still totes-adorbs….just now he’s Man-Cute instead of Baby-Cute. 😉

Stampin’ Up! Merry Moose and Plaid Sneak Peek

Good morning! Happy mid-way-thru-the-weekend!  Hope it’s going well – it’s a freakin’ steam bath here!  Yikes.  I am SO ready for some Fall weather.  Either that or I need to build an underground bunker. 😉

If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video, I appreciate you spending part of your weekend with me!  If not, but would like to see how I made today’s card – and get a few more looks at some goodies in the new 2019 Holiday Catalog – here’s the replay!

From the instant I saw the Merry Moose stamp set – and the bundled Moose Punch (seriously?!? 🙂 ) – I knew this would be at the top end of my list for this really awesome new catalog!  And then I saw the Wrapped in Plaid DSP and…well.  It was a moose-y marriage made in heaven!  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one comes from this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

I started by building the background – using the new Basic Pattern Decorative Masks (coming on 4 Sept in the 2019 Holiday Catalog).  I used the trees mask and a sponge with Crumb Cake ink to first create the trees.  Leaving the mask in place, I then sponged lightly over the top with new Golden Glitz Delicata Ink (also new in the 2019 Holiday catty!).  When it was dry, I matted the panel on Cherry Cobbler for the card front.

Next I cut a piece of Cherry Cobbler plaid paper from the Wrapped in Plaid DSP, using a square Stitched Shapes Die.  I also cut a same-size piece of Very Vanilla.  I adhered the plaid square at a diagonal onto the card front with Liquid Glue.

On the Very Vanilla square, I stamped the large tree from Merry Moose in Shaded Spruce – twice.  Then I used the small tree image – and stamped-off-once Shaded Spruce – to add a few background trees.  I inked the large tree with the Golden Glitz ink and stamped over the top of the images.  Then I adhered the square to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I used a few Glue Dots to adhere a length of 5/8″ Burlap Trim across the panel.

I cut a small Rectangle Stitched Dies shape from Very Vanilla, stamped the Merry Moose sentiment in Cherry Cobbler, and adhered it to the trim with Liquid Glue.

On another piece of Very Vanilla, I stamped the moose in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  Then I used my Light and Dark Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends to color his body and Light and Dark Gray Granite for his antlers.  I cut him out with the Moose Punch and, using Liquid Glue and some Mini Dimensionals (under the antlers), adhered him next to the sentiment.

I stamped the scarf in Shaded Spruce on Very Vanilla, fussy cut it and adhered it with Liquid Glue.  Then I added some Shaded Spruce jewels from the Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels (these are coming soon, too!) and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a second sentiment in Cherry Cobbler to a Very Vanilla panel.  Then I did a few more Shaded Spruce and Golden Glitz trees and some “ground/snow” in stamped-off-once Crumb Cake.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat and into my Crumb Cake card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got more Merry Moose trees on the front…

…and some more of that wunnermus Wrapped in Plaid on the envelope flap.

Et Voila.  Moose.  Trees.  Sentiments.  An adorable racoon.  AND a punch??  Yep – the Merry Moose bundle is going to be a heavy favorite this season, I am 100% confident!  And if you pair it with plaid?  Oh my.  I hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix


Did you guys know that yesterday was – apparently – National Spoil Your Dog Day?

No – I didn’t either.  Until I got an e-mail from Chewy or IHeartDogs or some such.

So…if I understand this correctly…we’re only supposed to spoil our dog on ONE DAY OUT OF THE YEAR?!?

Finn gives this stupid idea about a million paws DOWN!

Maybe a National Spoil Your Cat Day (and maybe then only once every 5 or 6 years – if you MUST have a cat).

But – not for dogs.

Dogs must be spoiled every.  Single.  Day.

Yesterday, in order to ensure that happened – Finn got me up twice on Friday night to go out.  This is unheard of in our house.  He simply never has to go out once he’s hit the sack.

THIS is normal – all night long – with nary a twitch nor a wiggle.  Probably some snoring, but that’s about it.

So I was on high alert on Saturday morning and, sure enough, appears he had a little tummy upset.

The 2 teaspoons of Pepto Bismol (YUK, mom – what the HECK!?!) was not even sort of well received.

Chicken and rice in the Mealthy Multi-Pot was the more (much more!) palatable remedy.  Dump it in – a quick 3 minutes on high and then sit until I got back in from doing the horses and…

I’ll feed this out and I’m quite sure it will settle his little tummy right down.

Also I’ll be a rock-star AND – will have fulfilled the requirement to spoil my dog for this year.  Winner winner chicken-and-rice dinner!

Phew! 😅 Don’t have to do THAT again for 364 more days! What a relief! 😉

Happy Saturday, y’all!  What plans do you have for the weekend?  I think we need to hit the Farmer’s Market this morning (and I think Finn-y might get to go, too!) to get more tomatoes.  I am really regretting not having any plants this year!  Wayne and I came home from Italy with a new-found love of caprese salad!  And…those half-ripe maters from the grocery store….no.  Just…no!

Finn Fan Fix


I’ve been thinking of fun things to do with Finn now that I’m going to have time on my hand – and NOT have to go running here and there for months at a time.

One of those things is…pet therapy!  I think Finn-y would be seriously awesome as a pet therapy dog, don’t you?  And…maybe one of those airport dogs – the ones that try to keep folks from having meltdowns.  Not the ones that find drugs or anything. 😉

Since the first step to any of these is…training – I thought we ought to start at home.

And – since we’re inundated with trees – and branches that fall to the ground – I thought to myself “Self – let’s teach the dog to pick up sticks and carry them to a pile and drop them”.

He LIKES to carry sticks.

Unfortunately – the second phase of the process is much MUCH harder.

He sort of likes to…chew them to pieces wherever he picks them up.

Well.  I suppose wood chips might be useful, too?

Baby steps! 😉

Stampin’ Up! It’s a Most Wonderful Time of the Year Sneak Peek!

Good morning, my peeps!  Happy Sunday!  Hope you’re staying cool wherever you may be today!  My Weather Live app yestedray informed me that the “Feels Like” condition was “A Sauna”.  And it was right!! Yuk!

If you were able to join me last night for my FB live video, I appreciate it – hope you liked the card and the peek at a few new goodies in the 2019 Holiday Catalog!  If not, but you’d like to take a gander at the replay, here ’tis!

I made a little Christmas-in-July card, using a couple of new goodies from the catalog – including the new Most Wonderful Time stamp set and Product Medley.  PLUS the wunnermus new Tree Punch.  Take a look-see:

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

I started very simply with a Whisper White panel matted on Old Olive for the card front.

I wrapped some of the Gold/White Tinsel Trim (one of the pieces of the Most Wonderful Time Product Medley!) twice around the matted panel, securing it in the back with Glue Dots.

With the new Tree Punch, I punched two Christmas Trees from one design of the DSP in the Product Medley and a third from the second design.  I lined them up and popped them all onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On one of the included sticker labels, I stamped a sentiment from the Most Wonderful Time stamp set (great news!  This stamp set is INCLUDED in the Most Wonderful Time Product Medley!  Whoo-hooo!) in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I used my Embossing Buddy on the back of the sticker to un-stick-ify it, then popped it onto the trees with Dimensionals.

I tied a tinsel bow around the wrapped tinsel and added three little gold stars (also in the Medley) to the tops of the trees and the card front was done!

On the inside, I used the pretty big tree in the Most Wonderful Time stamp set.  I inked it up with Old Olive ink, stamped it off TWICE on scrap paper, then stamped it in the middle of a Whisper White panel.  Over that, I added a second sentiment in Tuxedo Black Memento ink using my Stamparatus.  Then I added another gold star at the top of the tree.

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got the large tree in full-strength Old Olive – plus a gold star – on the front…

…and more of the DSP on the envelope flap.  AND – cuz I smudged….the back of the envelope got a small Most Wonderful Time tree image in Old Olive.

Et Voila!  LOVE this Most Wonderful Time set!  So…remember what a “Product Medley” is – it has a ton of elements – stamps, paper, dies, and various accessories – to help you create lots and lots of wonderful projects!  You supply the “staples” (card stock, adhesive, inks, acrylic blocks, etc)!  And then let your creativity loose!  I KNOW you’re going to love this one as much as I do – and I can’t wait until you can get your mitts on it in September!  Hope you like!

Now – this Product Medley isn’t available to y’all until 4 Sept.  UNLESS….you decide to go ahead and take advantage of the Extra Extra Joining Special soon!  Join right now – and you’ll be able to take part in the Demonstrator Pre-Order starting on 1 August.  Or, wait until the 1st to join – and you can use 2019 Holiday goodies to fill out your Starter Kit!  Awesome opportunity either way you go!!  Give me a shout if you want to know more – and/or check out my Join My Team Page! :)TTFN

Stampin’ Up! Truckin’ Video Tutorial Sneak Peek

Good morning and happy Saturday!  Hope you’ve got a great weekend planned!

And – I hope that part of your Saturday includes setting aside a little time to join me tonight on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page for a live video tutorial!  We’ll be on at 7pm eastern and will play with a super fun new bundle with a “3-Dimensional” flare!  Can you guess?  Take a sneaky peek:

I hope you can join us!

Tonight.  7pm Eastern.  Right here!

Now – on a different note.

When I started this Stampin’ Up! journey almost 5 years ago, I thought the best thing about it would be the fun tools and gadgets.  The beautiful paper and stamp sets.

I was wrong.

Now – don’t get me wrong – all of those things ARE most wonderful!

But – the VERY BEST part of this has been the people I’ve met – both in person and “virtually”.

And that blessing has been brought home to me in spades this last couple of days!  I’ve had a box full of happy mail each day!  Take a look at the wonderful birthday cards that have come to me this week!

This first one is a subscription to the Our Iowa magazine from my friend and teammate, Julie Johnson (guess where she’s from!)!  They’re right – I DO have some nice friends!  Julie has a great blog, by the way – give her a look-see over at Wild Wing Creations!

My friend – and upline/team leader extraordinaire – Amy Koenders (aka Stamp With Amy K) sent this beauty!

Karen Finkle, another good friend and teammate, created and sent…

Take a minute to check out Karen’s blog at Karen’s Card Corner!

My friend Donna sent a pretty card in pink and black!

Susan Heine sent a lovely card, too! 🙂

Kathy, from Nevada, a customer and – more importantly! – my friend! – sent this pretty floral card made with some Daisy Lane!

Faith SImpson sent this lovely bouquet!

And Barbara Simmons sent roses that will last forever!

Wow wow WOW!  I am truly blessed and fortunate to have so many wonderful friends around this country!  Thank you ALL so very much!

Hope I see you guys tonight! 🙂

STAMPIN’ TRIMMER CUTTING BLADES UPDATE

We have reevaluated our strategy for launching Stampin’ Trimmer Cutting Blades (item 126995) after the number of difficulties demonstrators and customers experienced during the South Pacific and European launches.

First, we have decided to reduce the limit on blades from six to three. We anticipate blades to sell out quickly, but hope more demonstrators and customers will be able to order with the smaller limit.

Second, we still plan to notify demonstrators through an update with the exact date and time the blades will become orderable (which will NOT be this week, as previously indicated). For this first launch in North America, we will send an email to anyone who requested a notification about when the blades would become available. For future launches, updates will be announced to Demonstrators ahead of time.

Third, we have made several internal system adjustments to avoid the issues we faced with previous launches in the South Pacific and Europe and are hopeful those errors will not be repeated.

Finally, there are different error messages you will see if trying to add the blades to an order before they become available and after they have sold out.

  • On the day of the launch, if you try to order the Stampin’ Trimmer Cutting Blades before they are available, you will see this error message: “You may not order 1 of item 126995 because of promotion restrictions.”
  • When the blades have sold out, the message will return to the current message until the next launch: “This item has been discontinued and cannot be added to your order (126995).”

We also want to remind you we are still working on a new trimmer option and hope to have more information to share in the coming months.

A quick note from me:  Stampin’ Up! did not provide a date and time when the blades will be available to order.  So keep an eye on my blog and newsletter and I’ll post those details as soon as we have them! But I wanted to post this update since many of you have been asking about the Trimmer Blades.

New 3D Embossing Folder Now Available!

The new 3D Embossing Folder Plate (item 149658) is now available to order! It’s designed to work with our new-style 3D embossing folders (which are thinner than our old-style Dynamic folders).

You can click on the picture above and open the flyer – then print it and keep it by your embossing machine and new 3D Embossing Folder Plate.  It’s got your new “sandwich” information right on it!

Remember that carryover 3D embossing folders will not be available to order at the start of the new catalog but I’ll let you know when they’re available to order.

Also keep in mind that we expect to receive staggered plate shipments in all markets during June and July as we build inventory. Which means, you may experience periods of time when it is unavailable to order if inventory is depleted; it will become available to order again when inventory is replenished.

How to Use the New Plate

The new plate makes up the difference in measurement between our old-style Dynamic Folders and our new-style 3D Folders in most die-cutting machines. The 3D Embossing Folder Plate replaces the Standard Cutting Pads in your 3D embossing folder sandwich for continued high-quality emboss results.

To create your emboss sandwich:

  • Use a die-cutting & embossing machine platform as a base; no matter which machine you’re using, use the standard platform which comes with your machine.
  • Use the 3D Embossing Folder with your paper in the middle.
  • Then use the 3D Embossing Folder Plate on top.

Given the differences in machines and platforms, you may still have to add a shim to get your desired embossing results. (You can also spritz your paper before embossing to maximize your embossed impressions.)

Without the new 3D Embossing Folder Plate, you will need to use several shims with the Standard Cutting Pad in your 3D embossing folder sandwich, depending on the die-cutting & embossing machine you use. Most machines will need between three to five sheets of cardstock to shim. Please be careful in how you shim; start out with fewer sheets first, then add sheets to get your desired results.  Stampin’ Up! won’t be responsible for replacing products broken due to using a sandwich which is too thick for a machine.
