Stampin’ Up! Fun Fold Video Tutorial Sneak Peek

Good morning, all!  Hope your weekend is dawning bright and clear.  Except for the west coast – I hope YOUR weekend is dawning cloudy, cool, rainy (or at least misty) and NOT AT ALL WINDY!!  Praying for the weather to start favoring the firefighters!

So – I’ll be coming to you tonight, at 7pm Eastern on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page, with a fun-fold.  I think you’ll like it – I know I do.  It’s a riff on one of my favorite fun folds.  And it’s super cute for….pet lovers!  Take a sneaky peek!

Can you tell what it is??

No?  Well – guess you’ll need to come on over and see what it’s all about in virtual-person, huh?? 🙂

Tonight.  7pm Eastern.  Right here!

Not to put too fine a point on it – but…this is your LAST day to pick up the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine AND earn DOUBLE PEPPERMINTS from me while you’re at it.  AND a free embossing folder of your choice (in addition to your usual ordering Thank You gift!).  I mean – you’ll still be able to ORDER the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine after today (duh!) – but you won’t be getting all those great extras when you do!  So…if you have any plans to add this great machine to your tool chest – and you really should! – then this is a great time to do it!  🙂

Stampin’ Up! Warm Hugs for the Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop

Happy Happy Hawwmp Day!!  And welcome to another edition of the Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop.   I hope you’ll sit down and spend a little time with us – regardless of where YOU are in the world! 🙂  I know you’re going to see some awesome projects!

Like most hops, we have a theme each month – and this month’s is “Tag Team”!   Which means – we all created two coordinating projects!

I decided to create a little…table decor!  When we have holiday meals with our friends, we usually do buffet style – with the silverware laying on the counter (on in a Red Solo Cup – TK would be proud!).  I decided I’d contribute something fun to the mix (in addition to the normal two-dozen deviled eggs!).  So…I pulled out a Mini Coffee Carrier and a couple of Mini Coffee Cups.  Plus…the Warm Hugs bundle and some Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP.  Take a look-see!

Stampin’ Up! Forever Flourishing Ferns Hello!

Good Monday morning!  Happy Labor Day!  Hope you’re celebrating by NOT laboring! 😉

We’ll head home a little later today – it was a wonderful ceremony – and Matt and Katelyn looked so handsome and beautiful.  It was good that I’d made it to the store for the waterproof mascara. 😢👍

Hard to believe the kids are married.  Guess they’ll always be “the kids”, huh? 🥰🥰

Okay – back to the business at hand!  My card for today is a pretty, feminine one that comes to you from the Forever Fern stamp set, with its bundled and gorgeous Forever Flourishing Dies!  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Stitched Love of Leaves Hello

Good morning!  I hope you’re waking up to the prospect of an awesome weekend!

Jan and I did a little shopping yesterday and got our nails done.  We’ll leave in a few hours for the Big Event! 🙂

The card I made for you today is so smack in my wheelhouse – layers – leaves – bows!  I got it done using the amazing Love of Leaves stamp set with the bundled Stitched Leaves Dies to create wonderful Fall leaves!  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from the Tuesday Morning Sketches challenge.

I started with a piece of Crumb Cake card stock – and along the long left side, I used the stitching die in the Stitched Leaves Dies to “emboss” a stitched pattern.  Note:  even though this die “embosses” – you use the die cutting sandwich in your Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine – not the embossing sandwich!  I matted the panel on a Crushed Curry panel.


On Crumb Cake card stock, I stamped the medium leaf from Love of Leaves in Pumpkin Pie ink.  I used a Sponge Dauber to add some Cajun Craze and Crushed Curry to the middle of each leaf.  Then I cut them with their die from the Stitched Leaves Dies.

I also cut some wheat grasses from the Autumn Essentials Die Set and berries from the Poinsettia Dies in Brushed Metallic Card Stock.

I added all the leaves and wheat and berries in an arc – using Liquid Glue.  Hint – for this kind of arrangement – build the collage from the bottom up.  So…start with one leaf near the bottom of the arc and then build up towards the top of the card! 🙂

On a piece of Very Vanilla, I stamped the sentiment from Love of Leaves in Cajun Craze.  Then I cut it with the banner die in the Tasteful Labels Die set.

I adhered the sentiment with Liquid Glue.

I doubled a length of 3/8″ Embroidered Ribbon and tied a double-loop Linen Thread Bow to it – then I adhered it with a Glue Dot.

I added a couple of Antiqued Corners with Glue Dots and some Bumble Bee 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dots and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped a second Love of Leaves sentiment in Cajun Craze on a Very Vanilla panel.  I added the leaf over top in Pumpkin Pie.  Hint:  my ink pad is relatively dry – so I was able to stamp it full strength and achieve this look.  If yours is new or real “juicy” – you might want to stamp it off on scrap paper once before stamping your panel.  Never hurts to do it all on a piece of scrap paper first to be sure you like it! 🙂

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Crushed Curry mat and into my Cajun Craze card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got a Pumpkin Pie leaf on the front…

…and some Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Can’t tell you how much I love the Love of Leaves bundle – especially the wunnermus Stitched Leaves Dies!  They cut and emboss your leaves in one pass thru your cutting machine!  Whoo-hoo!

And the added elements from the Poinsettia and Autumn Essentials Die sets just fill it out perfectly, don’t they??

I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Toile Joyful Holly with Video Tutorial

Happy Friday, y’all!  Hope you’ve got a good weekend in store – mine is BIG!

Tomorrow, I’ll head up to the Gainseville area to attend Matt and Katelyn’s wedding.  Jan and I have been discussing what we’re going to wear and when.  We’ll go this afternoon and get a manicure.

Well – two.  One each. 😉

I’m looking forward to the whole thing – been a while coming!

If you’re doing the math, you’ll have realized I probably won’t be on my Facebook video tomorrow evening – the rehearsal dinner is then.  I am…touched beyond measure that we were invited to that – especially given then we’re neither parents nor wedding party!  I guess we’re honorary parents!

Shoot.  Let the tears start! 🥰😢

Anywho – sniff – let’s talk card!

If you were able to join me yesterday for my YouTube live, I appreciate you spending some time with me – if not, but you’d like to see the replay, here ’tis! 🙂
