Stampin’ Up! Feeling of Christmas Video Sneak Peek

Good Morning!  Well – OnStage 2017 is in the books!  

The Krew: Amy, Deepa, me, Julie, Jackie, Kristie, Jari, Mary and Beth!

It was another great event – we’re all sorry it’s over and already making plans for the 2018 events!!  So fun to meet people who we’ve “talked” with online – like on Sunday night videos!!

Speaking of which – I hope you’ll be able to join me tonight on my Facebook Live video at 8pm Eastern!  We’ll be making a fun Christmas card using the pretty Feeling of Christmas stamp set.  Take a sneaky peek…

Pretty, huh? 🙂

Hope to see you tonight for the last – last!! – Sunday night FB Live video from Utah!!  Whoo-hooo!  Here’s a link right to my Stamps-n-Lingers FB Page!

Stampin’ Up! Hello From OnStage 2017!

Happy Saturday!  I’m coming to you not-really-live 🙂 from Salt Lake City!  At the 2017 OnStage event!

Before I get going, let’s take a moment to thank all the Veterans out there.  They’ve served and given much (or all) in our defense and we must each be grateful – every day, but especially on Veteran’s Day.  Thank you, one and all.

So, thought you might enjoy some pictures of what we’ve been up to here!  Still can’t give you any sneaky peeks of the new catalog…watch for those on Monday, okay??

I wanted to show you the cute little treat holders I made and brought with me for all the Critters-N-Creatin’ Krew and Amy’s Inkin’ Krew ladies who came to the event this year!

If you’re a Paper Pumpkin subscriber – you probably recognize these as the cute little treat pillow boxes from the September kit!  But…I bet when you got yours they weren’t all made up and stuffed with…chocolate! 😉

And for my Critters-N-Creatin’ Krew ladies who made the trek to OnStage this year…

A Stampin’ Up! Love Today Planner – to help them keep track of their business efforts!!  I’ve got one and love it – so I figured they would, too!

I’ve gotten lots of rest and time to chill-ax here at OnStage!

NOT!

It’s been a wonderful whirlwind of new products and whoo-hooing and laughter and whoo-hooing and demonstrations and whoo-hooing….you get the drift!  On top of seeing the new 2018 Occasions Catalog (which is…beyond amaze-balls!!) and the Sale-A-Bration catalog (who knew they could notch it UP so far?!?) – I’m spending time with some of my favorite peeps!!

Ready?  That’s Amy, Julie, Mary (no lie – we discovered yesterday morning at breakfast that we’re both Mary Kathleen!!), Jari, Kristi, Deepa, Jackie and Beth!

One of the fun things about coming to any Stampin’ Up! event is…Prize Patrol!  A drumroll commences – and they show us the prize (a stamp set from the new catty) and up on the screen flashes a picture of a pin!  If the picture matches the one you got in your welcome bag – then you win!  At which time – you leap to your feet and start acting the fool and whoo-hooing and clapping and a member of the Home Office comes and hand you a new goody!!

Julie quickly got the hang of it!!

Once you get your new goody – you have to pose for a picture.

It’s a real thing.

Oh – you weren’t hoping to be able to scope out the new goodies were you?!?  Don’t even bother enlarging those pictures – won’t work.  No peeks until Monday at 1pm Mountain Time!!  But – good effort!

Amy sort of tried to pose – but…I got a picture of her she’d hate.

So – I’m going to be her friend and not post it.

Unless she tries to accuse me of any more nefariousness – then – THEN – I’ll trot that picture out!  Let’s just call it…insurance, shall we?!? 😉

And – I got to attend CenterStage on Thursday night with Amy.  Wow!  

Great dinner… totally not diet friendly – but seriously yummy!  If you’ve never had Port Onion Bisque en Croute (and who has?!?) – well.  Mmmmmm!!!

The evening ended with a speaker – one of the funniest guys I’ve ever gotten to watch!  Folks – if you ever get a chance to see Jason Hewlett do his thing – go go GO!  He had the whole room rolling – even as he delivered his motivational talk.  Really awesome!

On Friday, we spent the morning in the MainStage area, watching several demonstrators….well…demonstrate! the new products.  Then it was time to breakout into the different product spotlight sessions, where we got to learn about a few of the new Suites and do our make-and-takes.

Amy led one of the sessions – you won’t be surprised to hear that she rocked it!

You may also not be surprised that we did a lot of clapping, cheering and whoo-hooing during her presentation. 😉

So – we’re at the half-way point here – the time goes so quickly!  I can’t wait until Monday afternoon when I can share the new catalog and Sale-A-Bration!!  You’re going to be….wowed!

TTFN

Mary

P.S.  We also got word of a new Stampin’ Tool.  I think you’re going to want it.  

P.P.S  And by “want” it – I mean “want it BAD!!” 😉

P.P.S.  Just sayin’.

P.P.P.S.  That was kinda mean, wasn’t it?? 😉

Stampin’ Up! Color Me Happy Pretty Pines

Good….Friday, y’all!  Hope you’ve had a great week and are ready for a weekend!

OnStage has been great so far…and wait until you get a gander at the new 2018 Occasions Catalog!  I’m so excited for you to get to see it!  Soon! 🙂

For today, I have a fun little pine-y Thank You card to share – it uses the large sentiment from the new Color Me Happy stamp set, a little Christmas Happiness and Pretty Pines die cuts and some Christmas Around the World DSP.  Take a look-see:

I played along with The Paper Players theme challenge this week:

I started with a Basic Black card base.  Then I cut two pieces of the plaid Christmas Around the World DSP to the exact size as the card – each is 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″.  I used Liquid Glue to adhere one sheet on the front of the card and the second sheet on the inside.  You’ll see how that ended up in a little bit.

Next up, I cut a smaller panel of Very Vanilla card stock and, using the splatter image in Touches of Texture, stamped it in Soft Suede a  couple of times – not re-inking between the stamps.

With my Christmas Happiness stamp set, I stamped a couple of pine boughs in Garden Green over the top of my splatters.  I added the medium size pine cone – the outline shape is in Early Espresso and the fill is Soft Suede.  Then I matted the panel on a piece of Garden Green card stock.

For my sentiment, I used the large Thank You in the new Color Me Happy stamp set, stamping it in Early Espresso on a piece of Wood Textures DSP.  Then I fussy cut just the “Thanks”.

I adhered the cut sentiment to the stamped panel with Liquid Glue.  Then, using my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig, I stamped just the work “you” under the sentiment in Early Espresso.

With the shortest pine bough die in the Pretty Pines Thinlits, I cut a couple of Garden Green pine boughs and adhered them with some Liquid Glue under the sentiment.   Then I cut a length of Jute Twine and unwound it – so I had three thinner strands.  With one of those strands, I tied a little bow and adhered it with a Glue Dot.

I added three Black Rhinestone Jewels to the panel and popped it over the plaid card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside, I cut another of the short pine boughs from Pretty Pines out of the corner of a Very Vanilla panel.

I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Garden Green mat and into the card base – you can see where I’d already adhered the Christmas Around the World DSP!  And that was it for the card base!

My Very Vanilla Medium envelope got some more Garden Green, Early Espresso and Soft Suede Christmas Happiness pine boughs and cone on the front…

…and some more Christmas Around the World Mary’s-Favorite-Plaid-Paper on the envelope flap!

Et Voila!  So – wood.  Pine boughs.  Pine Cones.  PLAID!  Hello??  Gotta love the Christmas Happiness stamp set and the Pretty Pines Thinlits, right?  And look how the Color Me Happy sentiment just slides right in there!!  Hope you like!

TTFN

Stampin’ Up! Quick Howdy from OnStage 2017!

Hey guys!  Thought I’d send a quick little how-do-you-do from OnStage!

Yesterday we (that would be me, Amy, Beth and Jari!) went out to the Stampin’ Up! Home Office!  Take a look-see…

We got to see the distribution center…

Now – if any of you follow Amy – she’s trying to claim that I was trying to slip under the ropes and purloin me some goodies.  

Not.

True.

Please note that I am clearly right THERE – in the picture.

Where’s Amy?!?

Just sayin….

Looks like a pretty nice place to work…

…and you’re even allowed to write on the walls….

But…anyone know what Amy was doing?!?


No tellin’…. 😉

Going to be a super fun four days, y’all! 

TTFN

Mary

Stampin’ Up! Quilted Christmas Trees for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop


Happy Thursday, y’all – and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! We’ve got a fun and Christmas-y sketch to play with today, so be sure to check ’em all out when you get done here!  

Here’s the sketch in question!

I took it pretty literally, and used the Christmas Quilt stamp set and matching Build a Quilt Framelits, added some Wood Textures and Christmas Quilt DSPs and came up with…take a look-see:

This one was pretty easy, with just a touch of fussy cutting of some simple shapes.

I started by building the card front, with a piece of Garden Green paper from the Quilted Christmas DSP Stack, matted on Powder Pink.  Over that, I placed a piece of Wood Textures DSP.  I cut the panel, and then ran it thru the Big Shot with the long straight “dots” die from the Swirly Snowflake Thinlits along the long edge.  I matted it on Powder Pink and Fast Fuse’d it to the card front.

Then I made some Christmas trees!  Here are the trees I made…from left to right.

Tree 1:  I fussy cut a triangle from a piece of Christmas Quilt DSP.  Then I used the little “stitches” die in the Build A Quilt Framelits to add some “stitches”.

Tree 2:  I stamped the dotted triangle image from Quilted Christmas in Real Red on Whisper White and cut it with the die from the Build A Quilt set.  Then I fussy cut the plaid triangle from the DSP stack and adhered it with Liquid Glue.

Tree 3: this is a Stitched Felt Embellishment.  I stamped a little “tree stand” in Real Red and cut it with the matching die.

Tree 4:  Similar to the green plaid tree – just with a different triangle.  And – another “tree stand”.

Tree 5:  Similar to Tree 1.

I layered the trees over the Wood Textures DSP using Liquid Glue for three of them – and then I popped the Stitched Felt Embellishment and the far left tree on with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

My sentiment, from Quilted Christmas, is stamped in Real Red ink on a strip of Powder Pink card stock.  I inked each word separately (started with Christmas) in order to get just those words.  I snipped banner ends on both ends, edged it with my Real Red Stampin’ Write Marker and popped it over the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a silver star Metallic Enamel Shape to the Stitched Felt Embellishment tree and a Rhinestone Basic Jewel to the sentiment and the card front was done.

On the inside, I added two trees to a Whisper White panel.  They both started with Real Red dotted outlines and then I snipped a tree from the Quilted Christmas DSP to adhere in the left tree.  For the second one, I masked the first tree with a sticky note and used the fill-images in Christmas Quilt in Powder Pink and Garden Green to fill it in.  Then I added a “base” in Real Red and Garden Green.

I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Powder Pink mat and into my Garden Green card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another Christmas Quilt tree on the front in Real Red, Garden Green and Powder Pink…

…and some more of the Quilted Christmas DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Trees made from Christmas Quilt and Build a Quilt pieces!  Cool!  Pretty versatile little bundle this one is, huh?  Hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Neutrals Painted Hometown Greetings

Happy happy HAWWWWWMPP Day, y’all!!  And this is the day I head in to Salt Lake City!  I’ll meet Amy and Jari and Beth at the Stampin’ Up! Home Office and we’ll take a tour – check out where the magic (and the pickin’ and shippin’!) happen! Then it’ll be back to the hotel to get things in full swing on Thursday!

Meanwhile – I’ll be trying to switch back to “day walking” from two days of “night walking”….yawn! 😉

My card today is a layered confection of neutrals (like that?  “Layered confection”! LOL) using the uber-pretty Hometown Greetings Edgelits and a sentiment from the Painted Harvest stamp set.  Take a look-see:

I was playing along with the TGIF Challenge this week…

…but I brought neither card stock nor ink in Sahara Sand – so… I had to get creative.  I decided to add Gold Glimmer paper for one of the neutrals.

I started with a piece of Very Vanilla card stock for the card front.  Yes – the whole card uses Very Vanilla – not the Whisper White that it looks like in my pictures.  I have no idea what happened there… 😦

The first layer of Hometown Greetings Edgelits die cuts is the Gold Glimmer layer.  Now – here’s a trick.  I had thought out the three layers I was going to use – so I decided I wanted to reverse one of the cuts.  I cut the Glimmer Paper layer by turning the paper upside down on the cutting platform.  When I cut it out that way, as soon as I turned it over (right side up) I had exactly what I wanted.  Take a look at that layer compared to the lowest Very Vanilla layer!  Same die….two looks!

I cut it out and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

Next up, I cut my Crumb Cake layer and adhered it over the top of the Glimmer Paper with Liquid Glue.  Be generous and give it time to adhere.  

The final layer is cut in Very Vanilla.  After I cut it out, I stamped the pretty sentiment from Painted Harvest in Soft Suede ink on the bottom, then I adhered it with Liquid Glue.  I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Soft Suede mat.

I tied a Linen Thread Billie Moan bow and adhered it near the sentiment with a Glue Dot.  Then I tied a double-strand “regular” bow with Linen Thread and stuck that on top.  

I added a few gold heart Metallic Enamel Shapes and the card front was done!

On the inside, I got a little creative.  I cut a single Soft Suede panel and adhered a Very Vanilla Hometown Greetings Edgelits die cut over the top with Liquid Glue.  Then I stamped a sentiment from the Hearts Come Home stamp set in Soft Suede in the top corner.  A gold heart Metallic Shape finished it off.

I Fast Fused the panel 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 some houses from Hearts Come Home in Soft Suede across the front.  I alternated between stamping “full strength” and “stamping off once”.  That gave each house a different look – using just one ink color…

…and I used the same technique with the two pine tree images on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  It’s pretty neutral – I hope! I love this little Hometown Greetings Edgelits die set – and it’s so pretty when paired with its bundled Hearts Come Home stamp set.  I like the color scheme for a Fall-kind of card, hence the Thanksgiving-ish sentiment from the Painted Harvest stamp set!  Hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Cheery Merry Little Labels for the Stamp Ink Paper #124

So – good mornin’, y’all!  It’s Tuesday – almost the last Tuesday I’ll be in Utah.  I’ll actually admit that I’ll miss it here a little – the scenery is ridiculously gorgeous – especially when there’s some weather around!  I’m betting in the middle of July it might not be so appealing to me…

I had a happy little surprise the other day – the nice folks at Stamp Ink Paper asked me to stay on as a permanent member of their Design Team!  Sending them a big Thank You!

Our Challenge #124 this week is a theme – Girl’s Night Out!

Since I don’t have a hang-around-the-house-watching-a-movie-and-making-s’mores-and-falling-asleep-at-8 stamp set, I had to channel some more adventurous friends!  So, I used the Merry Little Labels stamp set and some fun paper from the Year of Cheer Specialty DSP.  Take a look-see:

See?  It’s “girl’s” cuz of the pink.

Don’t judge – it was all I could come up with.

I’m a pretty boring person, y’all.  Sorry to have to break it to you!! 🙂

I started by Fast Fusing the Year of Cheer Specialty DSP to a Powder Pink mat for the card front.

Next, I used Glue Dots to adhere a length of Powder Pink 3/8″ Shimmer Ribbon to the card front in an oh-so-artsy manner.  Over that, with some Liquid Glue, I adhered a silver Foil Snowflake.

I inked up the Merry Little Labels sentiment in Versamark and stamped it on a piece of Powder Pink card stock.  Then I sprinkled it with Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heated it with my Heat Tool.  I cut it out with a Stitched Shapes Framelits circle die and popped it over the snowflake with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a single Black Rhinestone Jewel and that was it for the card front.

On the inside, I matted a Whisper White panel on a Powder Pink mat and added a thin strip of the Year of Cheer Specialty DSP, also matted on Powder Pink, across the bottom.  I wrapped a length of the Powder Pink 3/8″ Shimmer Ribbon around, securing it in the back with scotch tape.  Then I made a little “faux bow” with another short length of the ribbon.

.I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Powder Pink 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 a couple of strips of Washi Tape across the front – two silver strips from the Year of Cheer Specialty Washi Tape and one black-and-white strip from the Pick A Pattern Washi.  I colored the little tiny white lines with my Powder Pink Stampin’ Write Marker…

..and I added more of the Year of Cheer Specialty DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I’m not a big drinker, but I’m certainly a big eater!!  And if staying in with the girls and watching a movie isn’t on the agenda – then going out for a good meal surely would be!  I think the Merry Little Labels captured it pretty well – and the Year of Cheer Specialty DSP certainly looks like a good time is being had.  Hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Christmas Quilt Card Front Builder

Mornin’, y’all!!  Happy Monday.

??

Sorry to start the week with an oxymoron!  Although this is a good week on a couple of levels – one…it’s ONSTAGE WEEK!!  Whoo-hoo!  I work tonight and tomorrow night and then it’s off to OnStage with 8 of the ladies in our team and no-telling how many other demonstrators!  We’re touring the Home Office on Wednesday then Thursday the Main Event begins!!  And – then when I get back on Sunday….that will leave just one more week till I go home!

Whooo-hooo!!  I’m really ready, y’all!

If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video – thank you so much!!  If not, but you’d like to see the card we made, here’s the link to it on YouTube!

The sneak peek I showed you yesterday ended up as the start of the card we did – I finally got past my mental brain block and figured it out!  It uses the wonderful tree dies from the Card Front Builder Thinlits, a little plaid paper from the Christmas Around the World DSP and a sweet little sentiment from Christmas Quilt.  Take a look-see:

I started with a piece of Very Vanilla card stock and, with the Big Shot, cut the Card Front Builder Thinlits double and single tree shapes from near the top.  I used the same dies to cut the shapes from a piece of Christmas Around the World DSP.  Then I stuck the plaid cuts inside the negative spaces and used scotch tape on the back to secure them in place.

I ran the panel back thru the Big Shot, cutting the trees a second time.  Check the video for a tip about placement, okay?

The insides of those negative spaces are filled with Garden Green die cuts – in the same way I did the plaid trees.  Then I embossed the panel in the Softly Falling TIEF and matted the whole thing on a Real Red mat.

My sentiment, from Christmas Quilt, is stamped on a strip of Very Vanilla in Real Red.  I bannerized the end with my Paper Snips and edged it with my Garden Green Stampin’ Write Marker.  It’s popped on the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals – both regular and Mini.

I cut another Christmas Around the World Card Front Builder tree, covered it with glue from my Fine-Tip Glue pen and “sugared” it with Dazzling Diamonds Stampin’ Glitter.  Then I used Liquid Glue to adhere it to another tree in Very Vanilla.  I used some Dimensionals on the back to wind a few loops of Gold Metallic Thread and, with the addition of a little Liquid Glue, added it over the sentiment.

I added a few gold stars from the Metallics Enamel Shapes and the card front was done.

On the inside, I cut another double tree with the Card Front Builder Thinlits at the bottom of a Very Vanilla panel.  I stuck in another Christmas Around the World DSP tree (using some scotch tape on the back) and then adhered a Very Vanilla die cut over the top with Liquid Glue.

I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Real Red mat and into my Thick Very Vanilla card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got two more Card Front Builder trees on the front – one in plaid and one in Very Vanilla…

…and more Christmas Around the World DSP plaid on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  For all that this one bamboozled me on Saturday night, I’m pretty happy with how it turned out!  I love love love this plaid paper and those trees in the Card Front Builder Thinlits are just the best, don’t you think!?  Don’t forget the sweet and simple sentiment courtesy of the Christmas Quilt stamp set!  Hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Sunday Video Sneak Peek

Mornin’, y’all!  Hope you remembered to set your clocks back last night when you went to bed!  I personally wish we’d just stick with daylight savings time all year long.  I hate this jumping around, don’t you?

So – you might be wondering about the relatively cryptic nature of the title of my post today?  Usually I stick a stamp name or die set or something like that in there, I know.

But…I had a card in my head when I got back from work last night.  And I spent too long trying desperately to make it work.  And it just wouldn’t.  But I refused to give up the concept, so I pulled out the Card Front Builder Thinlits.  And some Christmas Around the World plaid.

And then the creative process simply…stalled.  I had a concept, but…nothing concrete.  So…I decided to sleep on it and took a picture of what I had.  Take a look-see:

Looks promising, maybe – we’ll see what transpires when I look at it in the light of day! 🙂

I sure hope you’ll join me tonight, at 8pm Eastern, on my Stamps-N-Lingers Facebook page.  And we’ll all see what I’ve come up with by then! 🙂

Have a super Sunday – enjoy that extra hour!

Stampin’ Up! Color Me Merry Thank You

Happy Saturday, y’all!  Hope your weekend is going well!

In my ongoing quest to show you guys how versatile the new Color Me Happy stamp set is – above and beyond even what you can do with it when you combine it with the Color Me Happy Project kit – I’ve made a quick and easy (and I ain’t just whistlin’ Dixie here, folks!!) thank you card with the stamp set and a little bit of the Merry Little Christmas DSP.  Take a look-see:

Since I’m betting your brain instantly told you how to make this card, you know how easy it is, right?

I did play along with the Tic-Tac-Toe challenge this week.  I went right down the middle!

Buckle up, buttercup – this is going to go fast!

I started with the cool black-and-white side of the Merry Little Christmas DSP and matted it on a panel of Pool Party card stock for the card front.  Then I wrapped a length of Peekaboo Peach 5/8″ Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon around the panel, securing it in the back with scotch tape.

I stamped the large and lovely sentiment from the Color Me Happy stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a piece of Whisper White card stock and cut it out with an oval die from the Stitched Shapes Framelits.  When the ink was good and dry, I used my Pumpkin Pie Light and Dark Stampin’ Blends to color the sentiment.  I used the Dark Pool Party Blend to color the little flourishes.

I cut a scalloped oval with the Ovals Layering Framelits die and matted the sentiment to it with Fast Fuse.  Then I popped it over the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I used a short little length of Metallic Thread (you can use whatever kind – you’re not going to see it!), and tied a knot around the Crinkled Seam Binding to the left of the sentiment.  That helped to make my faux-bow look a lot less faux!

I tied a bow with more of the Peekaboo Peach 5/8″ Crinkled Seam Binding and adhered it with a Glue Dot – right over the spot where I tied the Metallic Thread knot.  Then I added some Black Rhinestone Jewels to the sentiment and the card was done!

For the inside, I used the Leaf Punch to cut out a leaf (to coordinate with the front DSP) in the corner of a Whisper White panel.

I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Pool Party 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 a piece of Black and White Pick a Pattern Washi Tape across the front – I colored the little dots with my Dark Pool Party Stampin’ Blend (just hard to see in the picture!)…

..and I gave the envelope a little more of the leafy Merry Little Christmas DSP.

Et Voila!  So many ways to use the Color Me Happy stamp set – dress it up or dress it down!  And – even though “Christmas” is in the name of the Merry Little Christas DSP – its got so much versatility with the color scheme (it’s Old Olive-and-white on the other side!) and the patterns that are kind of season-neutral.  Hope you like!

TTFN
