Stampin’ Up! Label Me a Bold Bee for The Paper Players

I’ve got another fun challenge for you from the Paper Players – it’s a sketch challenge to help jump-start your creative mojo this week!  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 made two different cards this time around – with the Label Me Bold stamp set and some Golden Honey Specialty DSP as the main ingredients for both versions.  Take a look-see:

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

Although I didn’t use the exact colors, I pulled my color scheme from this week’s CAS Colours & Sketches challenge.

 

And the paper choice comes from the TGIF Product Spotlight Challenge.

And – I also think these have a Masculine Twist, so…they fit right in with the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.

Thanks to some Stampin’ Blends and the gorgeous Golden Honey Specialty DSP – these cards are easy-peasy!

I started with some black and white striped DSP and colored the white stripes with my Light Pumpkin Pie and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends.  The middle few stripes are colored with the Dark Daffodil Delight Blend.  TIP:  use long, straight strokes of the brush tip on your Blends.  The color will look better – regardless of which side you use!

I adhered the colored paper to a Basic Black mat for the card front.

For the art, panel – I used the splotch image from the Label Me Bold stamp set – and stamped it three times – the top is stamped-off-once Pumpkin Pie, then stamped-off-once Daffodil Delight.  I finished up with stamped-off-once Old Olive.

Using the stars image in the set, I stamped it three times in Versamark Ink and then sprinkled them with Shimmer Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  I heat set the powder with my Heat Tool.  Then I matted the panel on Basic Black.

I stuck a couple of Glue Dots in the middle of the panel and wound a length of black twine from the Country Club Baker’s Twine Combo pack in a figure-eight “bow”.  Then I popped the panel onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

With a star die in the Stitched Stars Die set, I cut a Vellum cardstock star.

For the sentiment, I stamped two images from Label My Bold in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Whisper White.  I cut them both with a narrow die from the Stitched Rectangle Die set.  I had to manipulate it a little to make it small enough for the sentiment (check it out on the video).

I lined everything up on the card and then adhered the two sentiments to the Vellum star with Liquid Glue.

I added some Dimensionals under the sentiments and then popped the whole thing over my “bow” – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped the splotch image again in Old Olive – this time I stamped it off on scrap paper TWICE before adding it to my Whisper White panel.  Over that I added another Label Me Bold sentiment in Tuxedo Black.  I stamped some Tuxedo Black stars next to the sentiment.

 

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Basic Black 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 a stamped-off-once Old Olive splotch – and some Tuxedo Black stars on the front…

…and more colored Golden Honey Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  The Label Me Bold stamp set is what I call a “fly-over” set – it’s easy to miss it – or to dismiss it!  Heck – I almost did!  But – I love the simplicity of the sentiments and the ability to use them with various dies – or even quickly fussy cut them.  Adding color here and there is easy with the other grpahic images in the set.  And – how happy are you that the Golden Honey Specialty DSP is BACK IN STOCK – and get-able for FREE with a $50 purchase during Sale-A-bration!

I hope you like!

The other day, while Wayne and I were eating lunch in the kitchen – as is his usual – Finn ate his breakfast.

Yes.  He saves his breakfast to eat while we’re eating our lunch.  He’s THAT dog.

Anyway – once he was done – he hurried into the living room.

A moment later – here he came.  With his essentially-dead-only-half-of-him-remains bear.

He loves that bear.

He entertained himself for a couple of minutes and then decided we were probably done eating and probably really wanted to play.

Dad?

Mom?

Since he had completely misjudged our level of “doneness” with lunch, he was….disappointed.

Bummer, dude. 🙁

So – today’s FFF is a blatant brag on my oh-so-smart-and-obedient boy. Straight up proud-mama stuff. 😉

A little backstory.  When I clean the stalls each morning – I can usually go three days before I have to run the manure spreader around the pasture – in the winter!!  On Wednesday, even though the weather was pretty okay at that moment (ie: not raining cats and dogs) – I decided to NOT run it.  It was only day 2!

Of course – I KNEW it would be pouring the aforementioned cats-and-dogs on Thursday.  But…I still…didn’t.

On Thursday – as expected – I HAD to run the manure spreader.  And – the dogs – the cats – all coming down.

I just saw a cat AND a dog come down, mom!!

Now, normally the Man goes with me so that he can galloomph around and sniffle and snuffle and splash in every mud puddle he can find.

But – I decided I didn’t want him to be a soaking wet mess. So….in a fit of “maybe I’ll get lucky and he’ll stay put”…I sent him to his mat at the end of the aisle.

And then I started the four-wheeler and hooked up the spreader.

And – he stayed on the mat! 🙂

I headed out and did my thing – glancing back at the barn every three seconds to see if he was standing at the gate in the pouring down cats-and-dogs.

But…when I pulled back into the barn…

…there he was.  Right.  Where.  I.  Told him to stay! 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂

Folks – that was a long-distance, out-of-sight, with a HUGE attraction (the four wheeler) down/stay!

I mean…SERIOUS props to my wiggle-butt!!

I gave him an extra peppermint!  He TOTALLY earned that!

Now – it turns out that ‘bedience is EXHAUSTING!!

Next picture is gratuitous cuteness overload!

You’re welcome! 😉

Smart and cute all wrapped up in one furry package?  I am a lucky mom!

Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Parisian Poppies Double Flip Fun Fold!

Good Friday morning, y’all!!  Another week – done!   Did it feel shorter (and hence…better!) with the Monday holiday??

If you were able to join me for my YouTube Live Video yesterday –  I appreciate you spending some of your day with me!  If not, but you’d like to see the replay on YouTube…here ’tis!

I saw this Double Flip-Fold card on France Martin’s blog and thought it was so fun and easy….which it totally is!  I decided to use the Peaceful Moments Bundle and Painted Poppy stamp set – combined with gorgeous Parisian Blossom Specialty DSP.  Take a look-see:

The front of the card was already close to the FUSION sketch challenge this week – I simply modified the position of the flip portion (sliding it to the rigth instead of centered like a “normal” double-flip).  That gave me more room to collagify!

I started with the “first” card base – Basic Black at 4 1/4″ x 8 1/2″ and scored and folded it at 5 1/2″.  The “Flip” is Basic Black, 3″ x 8 1/2″, scored and folded at 4 1/4″.

I used the gorgeous Parisian Blossoms Specialty DSP on the front short panel of the first card base and on the inside back – both pieces are matted on Pool Party and adhered with Liquid Glue.

On the flip card base, I used my Stamparatus to stamp the sentiments from Peaceful Moments in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on two Whisper White panels.  On the inside panel, I also stamped two of the flowers from the Painted Poppies stamp set in Basic Gray – then I colored them with my Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Combo.   I matted each on Pool Party and adhered them inside the smaller flip card base.

Using Liquid Glue, I adhered the small card inside the larger card base.

For my collage, I used multiple dies from the Poppy Moments Die set to cut my flower and a bevy of leaf parts.  The flower has a solid piece of Petal Pink (I used a Sponge Dauber to ink the edges with Petal Pink ink) then I adhered a Basic Gray detailed flower with Liquid Glue. I cut a large flower center from Champagne Foil and adhered it with Liquid Glue, then I popped a smaller Black Foil center on top with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

For the leaves, I cut solid and detailed leaves in Pool Party and Champagne Foil, and also in Pool Party vellum from the So Very Vellum Specialty DSP (coming on 3 March in the second Sale-A-Bration Release!).  I glued the leaf parts together and then…started doing my dry-fit on the front of the card (which is the front of the smaller flip card base!

When I was happy – I took a picture with my phone…

Then I picked up the flower and took a second picture.

I adhered all the leaves with Liquid Glue.

Using Whisper White Solid Baker’s Twine, I made a loose double-loop figure-eight (I show this in the video!) and stuck it in the middle of the leaves with a couple of Glue Dots.  Then I popped the flower over top with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewel – and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another Painted Poppies flower in Basic Gray and Petal Pink on the front…

…and a little more Parisian Blossoms Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This Double-Flip Fun Fold is crazy easy so I hope you’ll try it soon!  I also wanted you to see how well the Peaceful Moments and Painted Poppies Bundles work with other papers like this Parisian Blossoms Specialty DSP!  The Peaceful Poppies DSP is gorgeous but…don’t be afraid to mix-and-match!  I hope you like! 🙂

On Wednesday, we picked up a new toilet.

Yes – the life of a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator is glamourous, indeed.

We’ve needed a new toilet for a minute – in our second bathroom.

By minute, I mean…well.  A MINUTE!

FINALLY broke down and paid for a “special order” toilet.  Meaning – we wanted it in bone.  Seriously?!?  BONE is a “special order”?!?

Why yes.  Yes it is.

Anywho – we finally got it.

So the menfolk put it in on Wednesday evening.

Gettin’ that old one out’s gonna be a booger, Dad.  You’re prolly gonna get wet!

Wiggle it, Dad – you gotta get it down on that wax thingy!

Doya need a tool or anything??  I’m a little thirsty…..how much longer were ya thinkin’??

Hmmm.  Those’r some complicated directions.  Why we reading directions??  We MEN!  Don’t need no stinkin’ directions!

Mary’s note:  that last picture is probably Pulitzer worthy.  Rare sighting of y-chromosomes reading instructions!

Stampin’ Up! Welcome Easter Birthday Bunny for The Paper Players

I’ve got another fun challenge for you today from the Paper Players – so come on over and play!  We’re playing with a theme challenge, and it’s a fun one – although it includes “clean and simple”  – which….isn’t exactly my comfort zone.  But – I gave it a go – and I hope you will, too! 🙂

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 used a new-to-me stamp set called Welcome Easter to make a totally not-Easter card!  With it, I paired the Sale-A-Bration stamp set Happy Birthday to You (available for FREE right now with a $50 retail purchase!) to turn the sweet bunny into a birthday critter.  Take a look-see:

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

 

The layout for this one is from this week’s CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge!

I started with a slightly-bigger-than-I-needed piece of Crumb Cake cardstock that I embossed in the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder.  I cut the panel down to size, cut the second-to-largest rectangle die from the Stitched So Sweetly Die set out of the middle of the it – on a jaunty angle.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Petal Pink mat.  Then I popped the die cut rectangle back in its “hole” with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I made the heart using the white-side of a Heart Doily – coloring it with my Dark Petal Pink Stampin’ Blend.  I put a piece of Stampin’ Dimensional under the left side of the heart and used Liquid Glue on the rest of the heart to adhere it to the card front.

On a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock, I stamped the totes-adorbs bunn-ya from Welcome Easter in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored him with my Light Petal Pink, Gray Granite and Crumb Cake Stampin’ blends.  Then I cut him out with a circle Stitched Shapes Die.

I added a couple of bees – also from Welcome Easter – in Tuxedo Black, colored in with my Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Write Marker.

The die cut is adhered with a Dimensional under the right side and Liquid Glue on the rest.

I stamped the Welcome Easter sentiment in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a piece of Petal Pink and cut it with a Stitched So Sweetly rectangle die – then used Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere it to the card front.  And – that was it!

On the inside, I used the sentiment from Happy Birthday To You in Tuxedo Black on a piece of Very Vanilla.  I added the bunny and a few bees, too!

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

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got another bunny and bees on the front….

…and some Petal Pink paper from the Subtles 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  That little Welcome Easter bunny makes me smile every time I see him!  As do the other sweet images in the stamp set!

I love that there are also non-Easter sentiments in the set – making it even more versatile and fun!  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!

We’ve had a casualty.

Background:

 

It turns out that INFLATABLE balls are perhaps not the best equipped to deal with….teeth.

It took approximately one second for the Big Blue Ball to stop playing.

Finn – couldn’t quite grasp the underlying problem.

Get up!

What’s WRONG with you?!?

Stupid Big Blue Ball. 🙁

Stampin’ Up! Welcome Easter Video Sneak Peek

Happy weekend, y’all!  For some of you – I hope for a LOT of you! – this is a LONG weekend to celebrate all the Presidential birthdays.

Hmmm.  I’m sort of glad most of us don’t get “lumped” into a single birthday, aren’t you?!?

To celebrate their birthdays (not really – but it’s the only gift I’ve got!), I’ll be going live tonight at 7pm Eastern on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page.  Yes, for a minute I’ll keep doing our Saturday videos on Facebook….eventually that may transition to YouTube like our mid-week vids!  For tonight, we’re going to make a sweet little birthday card using the Welcome Easter set (2020 Jan – Jun Mini Catalog) and the Happy Birthday To You set from the first Sale-A-Bration release.  Take a sneaky peek:

It’s a cutie and I think you’ll like it – so I hope you’ll be able to join me!

Tonight.  7pm Eastern.  Right here!

Welcome to our classroom!

The Equipment.

The ball.  Not quite tall enough (I don’t’ think) but…will work to start!

We’ve also got a clicker and a treat pouch loaded with yummy things.

And a purple sticky note as a “target” (Sticky notes – what would I do without them?!?).  UNDER the sticky note is a little smear of….peanut butter.

The Student.

 

Nose-on ball.  Click.

Nose not on ball.  No Click.

Click.

No click.

Repeat until 1) the treats run out or….

…the student leaves to get a drink!  School is thirsty work!

Boring stuff but…the start of learning to “push”! 😉

Stampin’ Up! Tags in Bloom Sneak Peek!

Good Friday morning, y’all!!  Another week – done!   AND – it’s Valentine’s Day! Boom – drop the Mic!

If you were able to join me for my first-ever (but NOT my last!) You Tube Live Video –  I appreciate you spending some of your day with me!  If not, but you’d like to see the replay on YouTube…here ’tis!

This card gives you a sneak peek of one of the new stamp sets coming to you on 3 March 2020 in the Sale-A-Bration Second Release.  The Tags in Bloom photopolymer stamp set – with 19 image, sentiment and frame stamps – will be available for free with a $100 purchase!

The layout for this one was inspired by today’s sketch challenge over at Fab Friday!

And the floral touches are perfect for the Global Design Project theme challenge this week!

This set  coordinates with the Label Me Lovely and Label Me Fancy Punches already available in the 2020 Jan-Jun Mini Catalog.

For this card, I started with a panel of Granny Apple Green – a little bigger than I needed it – and embossed it in the Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing Folder.  Then I cut it down to my desired size.   I “whitewashed” the brick by dragging my Whisper White Craft Ink pad (upside down) lightly across the raised portions, and when it was dry, I matted it on Daffodil Delight to make the card front.

I cut two of the largest scalloped rectangle dies in the Stitched So Sweetly Die set – one in Daffodil Delight and one in Whisper White.  I adhered the Daffodil Delight die cut to the card front with Liquid Glue.

On the Whisper White die cut, I stamped the flower-edged frame from the Tags in Bloom set in Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  Then I turned the die cut 180 degrees and, lining up the frame, inked and stamped the image again.

Using my Granny Apple Green and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends Combos, I colored the leaves and flowers.  I also used my Light Mango Melody Blend on the flowers to add a little extra “oomph” to the shading on the flowers.

I popped the completed panel over the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Across the middle, I adhered a short length of Granny Apple Green 1/2″ Textured Weave Ribbon with a little Liquid Glue.

On a seperate piece of Whisper White, I stamped the Tags in Bloom sentiment in Granny Apple Green.  Then I added the dotted-frame image, stamped in Daffodil Delight.  I punched the sentiment with the Label Me Lovely Punch – and popped it over the ribbon with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

A few Rhinestone Basic Jewels finished off the card front.

On the inside, I added a second sentiment from Tags in Bloom in Granny Apple Green to a Whsiper White panel.  Across the bottom I added the flowers in Tuxedo Black and colored them with my Stampin’ Blends.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Daffodil Delight mat and into my Basic Black card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more of the flowers on the front…

…and a piece of Granny Apple Green paper from the Brights 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  How gorgeous is this image from the Tags in Bloom set??  It is SO pretty in spring yellow and green, don’t you think?  I hope you like!

And – uhm…you’ll be able to get it for free on 3 March and thru the end of Sale-A-Bration on 31 March! Or….get it right now!  Join my team – with no obligation, no requirements, no commitment – and you can get these goodies right away and start using them.  Give me a holler with questions – or get started right here….and let’s get you going! 🙂

It was a dark and stormy day….

Okay – it was raining.  Not stormy.  Really just sort of dreary.

It was a dark and dreary morning….

…and warm enough that I’d directed the staff to open every door and window to air out the musty wolf smell of my lair.

With that done, after eating my specially prepared breakfast….

Okay – it’s dry dog food out of a bag.  Not like…venison benedict or something.

With that done, after eating my dry dog food out of a bag like a “regular” dog….

I took up my post.

I scanned for anything out of the ordinary.

Anything…odd.  Or…new.  Or…just….you know.

Soon, though, the patter of rain and the lack of anything “you know” began to take a toll…

The struggle is real, people.  It’s the ugly truth that no one wants to hear or know!

Sleep.   Happens.

Why do the staff always have a pea-pickin’ camera to catch me in the act of taking a short little teensy power nap?!?

The staff is on their own.

Stampin’ Up! Heartfelt Tri-Panel Fun Fold for The Paper Players

I’ve got another fun challenge for you today from the Paper Players – I hope that you’ll come on over and play!  We’re playing with a color challenge, and I didn’t get even a little jiggy with it! 😉

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 decided to make one last Valentine’s Day card for this challenge – giving me a great chance to use several pretty designs in the From My Heart Specialty DSP.  And, with that, I also pulled out the Heartfelt stamp set and the wonderful bundled Heart Punch Pack.  All on a fun-fold card.  Take a look-see:

And here’s this week’s colorful Paper Players challenge!  Join the fun and show us your projects! 🙂

This is called a Tri-Panel Fun Fold and I got the inspiration for it from my friend and teammate Karen Ksenzakovic who got it from our other teammate Barbara Ross, who saw a video on it from Tina Rappe!  Whew!  That’s a lot of talent right there.  Hope I did this justice – cuz it’s totally cool!

Also?  It’s totally easy, so…winner winner!

Being that it’s February and stuff, I figured a Valentine’s Day card would fit perfectly with this FUSION challenge.

I started with a “card base” of Basic Black and added a Real Red-matted piece of the From My Heart Specialty DSP.  The card base is flat – but is 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ (which means this one fits right in a regular A2 envelope!).

I cut the tri-panel part of the card from Flirty Flamingo and scored it at 1 1/2″, 3″, 5 1/2″ and 8″.  Then I folded each score line in opposite directions – starting with a “mountain” at the 1 1/2″ fold.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the last panel to a Basic Black mat and then to the card base.

All but one panel has a Basic Black-matted decoration – either a piece of the From The Heart Specialty DSP or a Whisper White sentiment panel.

On the Whisper White panel, I stamped a sentiment from the Heartfelt set in Real Red.  Over that, I added the small lace-y heart in stamped-off-once Flirty Flamingo.

On a piece of Whisper White, I stamped the solid Happy Valentine’s Day heart in Real Red and cut it with the heart punch in the Heart Punch Pack.  I adhered it at a jaunty angle to the back panel.

For the front of the card, I made a stacked heart sentiment.  First, I stamped the dotted heart image from Heartfelt on a piece of Whisper White.  Inside that, in Real Red, is a sentiment from the set.  I also stamped the larger lace-y heart in Real Red and punched it out with the scalloped heart in the punch pack.

To make the stack, I started with a Flirty Flamingo Heart Doily, to which I adhered a loop of Real Red 3/8″ Double-Stitched Satin Ribbon with Glue Dots.  I popped the scalloped heart over that with Stampin’ Dimensionals – then added the sentiment with Liquid Glue.

I adhered the whole thing to the front-most panel of the tri-panel fold with Liquid Glue and that was it for the card.  When you make one of these – be sure that you only use the adhesive on HALF of your decoration!  Otherwise…fun-fold be like…glued shut! 😉

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got the large Heartfelt heart in Real Red on the front…

…and one of the From My Heart papers on the envelope flap.

Et voila! Easy Peasy, huh?  I am loving this Tri-Panel Fun Fold and it is so Valentine-perfect with the Heartfelt stamp set and bundled Heart Punch Pack, don’t you think?  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!

Finn Fan Fix


On chilly mornings, I sometimes will go sit in the tack room after I put the girls out and before cleaning the stalls.  There’s a comfy recliner in the apartment and it’s warm.

So – I sit there all bundled up and read a book for a bit until I can gird my loins and go back into the cold to finish the chores.

Okay – yes.  Sometimes I might accidentally take a little nap. 😉

Finn comes in with me.  Not cuz he’s cold (he LOVES winter!!) – but because he’s velcro!

But – there’s only so much laying-around-while-mom-reads/naps that a guy can take.

So…he sits up and scratches to see if I’ll get the hint.

Is she watching?

Is she even AWAKE??

Mom?  For crying out loud, Mom – let’s GO!!!

He’s nothing if not persistent! 😉

Stampin’ Up! Heartfelt Detailed Hearts for The Paper Players

I’ve got another fun challenge for you today from the Paper Players – I hope that you’ll come on over and play!  It’s a very month-appropriate theme challenge, as you’ll see in a second.

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 decided to go all-out Valentine’s Day for our challenge – with the Heartfelt stamp set and bundled Heart Punch Pack with a little extra help from the Detailed Hearts Die set.  Take a look-see:

 

And here’s this week’s Paper Players challenge!  Join the fun and show us your projects! 🙂

The layout for this one is from this week’s CAS(E) This Sketch challenge.

And it’s for certain-sure a Valentine’s Day card so…the TGIF Challenge was perfect!

Finally, the Just Us Girls Word Week Challenge helped me add the final element!

I started with a piece of Whisper White card stock that I embossed in the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder and matted on Basic Black for the card front.

To create the ombre Detailed Hearts Die cut – I took a piece of Whisper White card stock and adhered 1 1/8″ wide strips of Lovely Lipstick, Melon Mambo, Flirty Flamingo, Blushing Bride and Petal Pink cardstock to it with Liquid Glue.  Be sure to get adhesive right up to the edges of the strips!

I laid the Detailed Hearts Die over the panel and ran it thru my die cutting machine.  It takes a few passes – it’s thick!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the die cut to the card front.

Then I used some Liquid Glue to adhere a length of Black 1/2″ Satin Ribbon on a diagonal.

For the sentiment, I used my Stamparatus to stamp the sentiment from the Heartfelt stamp set in Flirty Flamingo on Whisper White.  Using the Heart Punch Pack, I cut the sentiment with the straight-edge heart and used the scalloped-edge heart to cut one from Silver Glimmer Paper.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the sentiment heart to its Silver Glimmer heart mat and then to the card front.

I tied a small bow from the Black 1/2″ Satin Ribbon and adhered it with a Glue Dot to finish off the card front.

On the inside, I stamped a second Heartfelt sentiment in Flirty Flamingo on a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the dotted-heart image in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  Then I made a mask from a sticky note by punching the straight-edged Heart Punch.  I set the mask over the heart and sentiment and stamped the arrow in Melon Mambo.  Then I “fixed” the little gap with my Melon Mambo Stampin’ Write Marker.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Basic Black mat and then into my Flirty Flamingo card base, popped the card front on with Black Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got a Tuxedo Black Memento ink dotted heart and Melon Mambo arrow on the front…

…and a Melon Mambo heart stamp from the Heartfelt set on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Valentine’s Day – straight up!  I love the way the Heartfelt Bundle with the cool dual-punch Heart Punch Pack works with the Detailed Hearts Die, don’t you?

That single die gives so much interest to a card – whether you do it in tone-on-tone (like I did on this card here) or with a rainbow of colors like I did today!  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!

Now – before you reach for your ink and papers, check out what our amazing team has created to inspire you this week:

Finn Fan Fix


So – Finn gave up his “spot” today for a different kind of post.

On Friday evening, my brother lost his sweet kitty, Bijou.  She was rescued from New Orleans after Katrina as a youngster and he adopted her.

Bijou – “a small dainty usually ornamental piece of delicate workmanship; something delicate, elegant, or highly prized”

No photo description available.

As all our fur-children do, she quickly became a fixture in his heart.

Image may contain: cat and indoor

Considering he had her for most of her life he is pretty devastated at her loss.  And I know his apartment is feeling very empty today.

Image may contain: cat, table and indoor

So – please send good thoughts and prayers his way for peace today and comfort knowing that she’s at the Bridge, playing will all the good kitties who have gone ahead.

Image may contain: possible text that says 'A piece of my heart is at rainbow bridge'

Bijou was about the same age as Katy.

Which means that our time with her is probably drawing to a close.

So I’ll try to remember that at 3:30 in the morning when she wakes me up to eat – even though she’s got food bowls set out.  It’s apparently not the “right” food.  In some cases it’s the SAME food that she WILL eat if I get up and give it to her at 3:30 in the morning.

My little fur-tyrant.

Of course, like all fur-children, just about the time I “can’t take another second” – she…

and….

So.

Now both Bijou and Katy are immortalized on the internet forever!

Thanks for reading my not-Finn-Fan Fix!
