Stampin’ Up! Perennial Birthday Hoppy Together Sneak Peek!

Mornin’, folks!  Hope your weekend is going well!

My trip this week was re-scheduled for January, so I’m not on my way to CA right now.  Do have to take a quick trip up to Kentucky at the end of the week, but that’ll be easy!

I’m still not going to do a video tonight – sorry.  I have the whole week planned out for cards – and…hadn’t planned something video-worthy.  So…I’ll be back next Sunday, as planned!

Today, though, the card I have is SO fun!  It uses one of the cutest, most fun stamp sets coming in Jan.  And it’s going to be FREE!  That’s right – this set, called Hoppy Together – will be FREE with a $50 purchase during Sale-a-Bration!  For this card, I added a sentiment from Perennial Birthday (in the Annual Catalog).  Take a look-see:

Cute, huh?

This fun layout is from this week’s Global Design Project sketch challenge.

And there’s no doubt at all that this little gem is high on my list of favorite new things!  As requested by the Paper Craft Crew Theme Challenge!

I started with a piece of Gingham Gala 6″ x 6″ DSP (coming on 3 Jan) and a same-size piece of Whisper White.  I stacked them up and, using my 1 3/4″ Circle Punch,  cut them on the right edge.  I dry fit them on another Whisper White panel that I’d matted on Shaded Spruce for the card front.

I used the adorable little froggie from Hoppy Together and stamped him in Shaded Spruce on the card front, situating him so he’d be peeking out of the “window” I’d created.

I colored him with my Light and Dark Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends.  The little bee is also from Hoppy Together – I stamped him a few times in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink around the frog.  They’re colored with my Dark Daffodil Delight Blend.  I used a Journaling Pen to add some dots as a “flight path”.

On the Whisper White panel with the 1 3/4″ hole punched in it, I stamped the big sentiment from Perennial Birthday in Shaded Spruce.  I added the butterfly and bees from Hoppy Together in Tuxedo Black.

I colored the bees with the Dark Daffodil Blend and the butterfly with my Light and Dark Mango Melody Blends and the Dark Daffodil Blend.  Then I added more “flight path” dots with the Journaling Pen.

I added the Gingham Gala and the Whisper White panels to the card front at an angle with Liquid Glue.

To make the froggie’s sign, I stamped the sentiment from Hoppy Together in Granny Apple Green on a scrap of Whisper White and fussy cut it.

I cut a little Shaded Spruce “stick” and adhered it with Liquid Glue, then added my sign.  And that was it for the card front!

On the inside, I added the same Hoppy Together froggie in Shaded Spruce on a Whisper White panel, coloring him with my Dark and Light Granny Apple Green Blends – plus my Lemon Lime Twist Stampin’ Write Marker for his belly and Shaded Spruce Marker for his spots.  I made his sign in the same way as the one on the front and this one is a bit of pun – I stamped the little bee and the “hoppy” (in Granny Apple Green).  Get it??

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Shaded Spruce mat and into my Granny Apple Green card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got some more crazy Hoppy Together bees across the front…

…and some more Lemon Lime Twist Gingham Gala DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  How could Hoppy Together NOT be one of my favorite new stamp sets?!?  I mean – it’s a-freakin’-dorable AND…uhm…FREE!!  Yes.  FREE with a $50 purchase once Sale-A-Bration starts in January!  I hope you like – and that your wish list just got a little longer!

We’ve been giving Katy tuna fish.

With oil.

And mayonnaise.

Hey – she’s like…16.  ANY calories we can get in her are GOOD calories.

And she likes it.  Especially the mayonnaise!!

And it smells WAY better than canned cat food.

Finn agrees.

It’s a hard thing standing sorta-politely back whilst the cat gets ALL THE GOOD FOOD!

So – sometimes, he gets to have the final lick on the bowl.

He makes the most of it.

Getting.  Every.  Last.  Drop.

Stampin’ Up! Geared Up Garage Sneak Peek

Happy Saturday, y’all!  Today is our Quarterly in-person version of our Amy’s Inkin’ Krew team meeting!  I so look forward to these meetings each quarter – we have such a great group of ladies – both in Amy’s direct team and in my team (the Critters-N-Creatin’ Krew!) – and we all get together and have a wonderful time!  Oh – and it’s my day for Panera!  Love!

I know I’ll have some fun projects to share with you in the upcoming days!  Yes – we DO make cards at our meetings! 😉

Speaking of fun projects and sneak peeks, how’s about one today?  This is a new set in the Occasions catalog (coming on 3 Jan 18) that will be perfectly perfect for Father’s Day – or, for anyone that loves classic cars!  It’s called Geared Up Garage and it’s cool! Take a look-see:

The layout – which is perfect for the big gears die in the new Garage Gears Thinlits – is from the CAS Colours & Sketches challenge this week.

Check out this fun stamp and framelits bundle!

And there’s paper, too – called the Classic Garage 6″ x 6″ DSP!

So – I started with one of the more plain designs in the Classic Garage DSP and first embossed it in the Subtle Dynamic TIEF.  Then I used my Simply Scored board to create a grid.  I scored across the card front – lightly!! – at each inch.  Then I turned the paper 90 degrees and did it again.

The end result looks like asphalt.

Humor me!

With Liquid Glue, I matted the “asphalt” to a Blueberry Bushel card stock panel for the card front.

I used the big, detailed die in the Garage Gears Thinlits and cut out the large element from a piece of Galvanized Metallic Paper.  I also cut two smaller sets of gears at the same time.

With Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals, I popped the big gears onto the card front.

I adhered the smaller gear die (with the three gears) to the card front with Liquid Glue, then made a loop of new Black/Silver 1/4″ Striped Metallic Ribbon (available 3 Jan) and adhered it to the card front with a couple of Glue Dots.

The sentiment, from Geared Up Garage, is heat embossed in Silver on Blueberry Bushel, then cut with the matching die in the Garage Gears Thinlits.  I popped it over the ribbon and gears with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The final, single, gear die cut is popped over the large shape with a Stampin’ Dimensionals.  To finish up, I adhered a little wrench embellishment from the Classic Garage Metal Elements with a Glue Dot and the card front was done!

On the inside, I inked up the “cloud” (of exhaust?!?) image from Geared Up Garage in Blueberry Bushel and stamped it off once, then stamped a Whisper White panel.  Over that, I heat embossed a second sentiment in Silver.  Finally, I added some gears in Basic Gray ink.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Blueberry Bushel mat and into my Basic Gray card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got a full-strength Blueberry Bushel cloud and some Basic Gray gears on the front…

…and some more Classic Garage DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  What fun this Geared Up Garage stamp set and bundled Garage Gears Thinlits is going to be as we head into Spring!!  Anyone who appreciates a classic ride is going to love this suite of goodies!!  Hope you like – and will be adding it to your Wish List!

I’m sure sorry my poor little dog-a-lus has such a hard life.

It really is a pretty awful thing to see, I know.

I’m sorry.

Stampin’ Up! Happiness Surrounds Needlepoint Nook

Good morning, y’all!  Here we are – on Friday again!  On the edge of another weekend.  And…on the brink of….Christmas!  25 days.

Twenty.

Five.

Days.

That’s not a lot of days, y’all!!

Oh – and another thing we’re on the brink of today.  Today is the last day before the forever-disappearance of the wonderful Snowflake Showcase!  We already witnessed the demise of the White Velvet Paper.  Now – the rest of this suite is almost gone. 🙁

I thought I’d give you one last look at this suite – focusing on the non-Christmas stamp set – Happiness Surrounds.  And I added it to a little new Needlepoint Nook and Gingham Gala DSPs (which you’ll be able to get on 3 Jan 19). Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Lasting Lily and Botanical Butterflies Sneak Peek

Happy Saturday, my peeps!  Did y’all brave the elements – and the crazy crowds! – to hit the Black Friday sales?  I sure didn’t!  We stay pretty hunkered down on Black Friday – I hate the traffic and Wayne has zero tolerance for them (cars or people!).  So…we stay home and shop the old fashioned way.

Online! LOL!

You guys did a little Online Extravaganza shopping yesterday, I saw!  Yeah!  There’s still today left for the Paper & Embellishments sale and then we’ll segue over into two days of Phase 2: Stamps & Kits!  Then there’s two more days after THAT (Tools & Ink)!  And – of course, thru the whole event, I’m offering Double Peppermints.  So…it’s a most wonderful time….of the YEAAAAAAR!

Now – on a slightly different tack, my card for today features some new goodies that will be available starting on 3 Jan 19 with the Occasions and Sale-A-Bration catalogs!  Lasting Lily is a wonderful 16-stamp set in the Sale-A-Bration flyer – that you’ll be able to pick up for free with a $100 purchase!  And I tapped into the wonderful Hold on to Hope stamp set and Cross of Hope Framelits from the Annual Catalog.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Online Extravaganza Day 1 Starts Now – and an Ordering Special!

Good day-after-Thanksgiving y’all!  Hope everyone enjoyed their day – and that your turkeys and hams and sweet potato casseroles came out perfectly!  Our first-ever-smoked turkey was pretty good – it only took about 3 hours to cook instead of the 5 we found online.  So…had to sort of scramble to keep it warm and not let it dry out!  But – we did it and it was quite good.  I even made gravy – with a little bit of smoke from the drippings!  Yumm-o!

Today is a big day – it’s the start of our Online Extravaganza!!

Six Days.  Three Sales.  One Spectacular Promotion!!
