Stampin’ Up! More Than Words Painted Seasons Sneak Peek

Happy Friday!  Whoo-hoo!  Glad we made it together – and looking forward to (hopefully!) seeing a bunch of you on our Facebook party starting tonight!!  We’ve got a bunch of fun games going on already and you can leave a comment and start getting entered to win some Prize Patrol goodies!

My card today brings you two sneak peeks!  First off is the new Sale-A-Bration Painted Seasons Bundle – with a wonderful image-only stamp set and coordinating Painted Seasons DSP.  These are both available to customers on 15 Feb.  For the sentiment, I went to one of the Sale-A-Bration Coordination goodies (coming on 1 March to customers).  Take a look-see:

The layout is from this week’s Tuesday Morning Sketch challenge.

And the color scheme is from the Color Throwdown challenge.

I started with a panel of new Painted Seasons DSP and cut it into three equal width strips – then I adhered the strips onto a Melon Mango mat with Liquid Glue for the card front.

I used my Stamparatus to stamp the More Than Words (available 1 March) sentiment in Poppy Parade on a same-design piece of Painted Seasons DSP and cut it out with a Stitched Shapes Framelits circle die.  I matted it on a Mango Melody Scalloped Circle and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I inked up the “birthday” in Melon Mambo and then used a Sponge Dauber to add some Grapefruit Grove along the bottom of the stamp, then stamped it on a strip of Whisper White.  I snipped banner ends with my Paper Snips and edged it with my Mango Melody Stampin’ Write Marker.  Then I popped it over the circle with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

My Stamparatus went to work again to create the flower and leaves.  I inked the flower by applying the inks with Sponge Daubers – Poppy Parade around the outer edges and Mango Melody in the middle.  Then I blurred the colors with some Grapefruit Grove in between those two colors.  Using the Stamparatus meant I could stamp the image multiple times until I got it “just right”!

I inked and stamped the ferns the same way – using Crushed Curry and Mango Melody.  Then I stamped some Crushed Curry leaves.  I cut everything with the matching dies in the Four Seasons Framelits.

Don’t be confused, okay?  The Painted Seasons bundle is the stamp set and DSP.  And it’s a second-release Sale-A-Bration goody available on 15 Feb.  The Four Seasons Framelits are a SAB Coordination item, available 1 March.  Got it?? 🙂  Check it all out below!

I also pulled out my Wonderful Floral Framelits and cut a few Poppy Parade leaves with my favorite little die!

I adhered all the leaves in an artistic fashion with Liquid Glue.  I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the flower and used them to wind Gold Metallic Thread loops.  Then I popped it over the leaves.

I used my Crushed Curry Stampin’ Write Marker to add some “center” detail to the middle of the flower and brushed the middle with Clear Wink of Stella.  Then I added a small Gold Faceted Gem and the card front was done.

On the inside, I added some Crushed Curry leaves and Grapefruit Grove little…sparkles?…up the side of a Whisper White panel.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Grapefruit Grove mat and into a Poppy Parade card base and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more of the Painted Seasons leaves and sparkles on the front…

…and then I added more Painted Seasons DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  How.  Freakin’. Gorgeous is this new Painted Seasons stamp set!?!  That flower!  And wait until you see the pine cone and the succulent!  The DSP that coordinates is absolutely wonderful and oh-so-pretty!  Makes my heart happy!  And the new More Than Words stamp set has such wonderful sentiments!  You’re going to want them both.  All!  EVERYTHING!  Hope you like!

True watch face on Thursday.  Pretty warm!  Actually pretty awesome!  All the windows and doors open to air out the winter musty’s!

And this is how Finn enjoys a warm-as-Spring day in February!

Stampin’ Up! How Sweet It Is Cupcakes 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 comes up with!  I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop.

The color challenge this week shoved me right smack out of my comfort zone!  No Mossy Meadows.  No Blackberry Bliss, Cajun Craze or Crushed Curry.  Nope.  Quite the opposite.  The colors are bright and candy-sweet.  So…I used the Sweetest Thing stamp set and Hello Cupcake from the Sale-A-Bration flyer.  Take a look-see:

And – the colors (just in case you didn’t figure them out….)

Not colors you’re used to seeing from me, huh?  😉

I started with a striped piece of Coastal Cabana paper from the How Sweet It Is DSP and matted it on Melon Mambo card stock for the card front.

Next up, I matted a second piece of the DSP on Melon Mambo and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I used the big die in the new Doily Builder Thinlits to cut an ice-cream-shop-worthy doily from a piece of Sparkle Glimmer Paper and adhered it with Liquid Glue.

On a separate piece of Whisper White, I stamped the sentiment label outline image from the Sweetest Thing stamp set in Coastal Cabana.  Inside it, I added the sentiment in Melon Mambo.

I cut the sentiment with the matching die in the bundled Jar Of Sweets Framelits – and, while I was at the Big Shot, also cut a Melon Mambo label to use as my mat.

I adhered the sentiment to the Melon Mambo label with Liquid Glue – having it just peek out the top.  Then I popped the matted sentiment onto the doily with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped a Melon Mambo and Coastal Cabana lollipop on Whisper White and cut them with their die.  Then I colored the Melon Mambo sucker with my Coastal Cabana Stampin’ Write Marker.  I adhered them to the sentiment with Liquid Glue.

To finish off the card front, I tied a bow from Coastal Cabana/Granny Apple Green 3/8″ Reversible Ribbon and adhered it with a Glue Dot.

On the inside, I stamped Melon Mambo wrapped candies and Coastal Cabana lollipops from Sweetest Thing across the bottom of a Whisper White panel.  Then I added the perfect sentiment from the Hello Cupcake (SAB) stamp set in Melon Mambo.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Melon Mambo 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 more of the candies across the front…

…and then I added some more of the How Sweet It Is DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Not my colors – but I do like how this one turned out!  The Sweetest Thing set is so cute and I love that the Jar of Sweets Framelits let you cut out the little candies!  Hello Cupcake is…FREE!  Oh – and coming on 1 March…will have matching dies!  Finally, let’s not forget that gorgeous Doily Builder doily in the Sparkle Glimmer Paper!  Makes me think of the Ghiradelli ice cream shop at Disney!  Yum!  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Needlepoint and Thread Thanks

Well – it’s HAWWWMP day again!  I love that commercial – and Geico has started re-running them, have you noticed?  Along with the caveman series.  Those are commercials I don’t particularly mind watching – as opposed to nearly ANY of the other ones!

But – who doesn’t love MikemikemikemikeMIKE!!! 😉

My card today is super quick and easy, thanks to the fun Needle & Thread stamp set and coordinating Needlepoint Nook DSP.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Friendly Florentine Filigree Thanks!

Good morning!  Welcome to Tuesday!  I hope your week is going well.  We’re having a lovely little Spring-snap here in GA!  We even opened all the windows and doors on Monday – it was really nice to air the house out a little bit!  The Man spent much of the day outside enjoying the sunshine and breeze!  Would be nice if this lasted until…forever! 🙂

My card today uses a really cool little bundle in the 2019 Occasions catalog called the Florentine Filigree set.  The die that is in the bundle, the Florentine Thinlit, is a card-front-sized die that makes a wonderful element for our projects!  I put them all together in a few pretty colors and…take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Needlepoint Vibrant Vases

Good morning!  Are you all tired from watching the Super Bowl?  Didn’t the Thunderbirds do a bang-up job with the flyover!  Spot-on-time!  We were lucky that the weather was good so they could leave the roof open!

What was your favorite commercial?  There were a LOT of really good ones – bust-out-laughing-out-loud good ones!  My fave was probably the one with Jason Bateman as the elevator operator.  Car buying worse than a root canal…worse than “the talk”….worse than a colonoscopy…. ROFL!!  And the Audi commercial…HAHAHA!!  Okay – and a few of the T-mobiles…

My card today is a Clean and Simple one, using the wonderful new Vibrant Vases stamp set – that coordinates with the Vase Builder Punch (from the Annual Catalog).  I added some Needlepoint Nook DSP.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! A Well Written Ride Thank You

Happy Super Bowl Sunday, y’all!  I know for at least a portion of the country – perhaps mostly in the New England and Los Angelas areas??! – this is a long-awaited day. 🙂  I do enjoy the game – if it’s a good one – but I really mostly enjoy the commercials, let’s be honest!  So – I hope they’re good this year.  It’s such a let-down when Wayne and I look at each other and think “meh…I’d have fast forwarded thru THAT one!”

Because there IS this big game that a lot of folks will want to watch – including me! – we’re not going to do a video tonight!  Sorry!  But I’ll be back next week, so don’t despair!

I showed y’all the wonderful gift that our vet sent us to commemorate and remind us of our good horse, Bo.  Didn’t see it?  Check it right here – scroll down to the Finn Fan Fix!  As a result of that kindness, I decided to make them a thank you card.  It seemed fittin’ to use the Let It Ride stamp set again – and this time I used sentiments from the awesome new Well Said Cling stamp bundle.  Take a look-see:
