Stampin’ Up! Forever Parisian Blossoms Fun Fold with a Video Tutorial!

Good Friday morning, y’all!  Hope your week has been good and that Spring is springing up where you are like it is here!  We had a little rain at the beginning of the week – but…yesterday was gorgeous and the weekend is looking to be the same!  🙂

Which means it’s perfectly perfect for staying home and working around the house, craft room and yard.  And…just leave the TV off, why don’t you?  Or…watch fun things.  Not the news.  They’re busy terrifying us – I’m pretty sure I’ve had the C-19 five or twelve times in the last week! In all my 29 years, I’ve never taken my temperature during pollen season.  But…I did this week!  So…turn it off!

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 used the gorgeous Forever Blossoms stamp set and bundled Cherry Blossoms Dies, plus paper from the Parisian Blossoms Specialty DSP to make this super-easy fun fold.  Take a look-see:

The color scheme for this one is from the Global Design Project’s color challenge this week!

I saw Cindy Brumbaugh’s take on this fun-fold using the Best Dressed suite and decided I needed to give it a go!

I started with a piece of So Saffron card stock cut at 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″.  I scored it at the 4 1/4″ mark, then, using my Paper Trimmer, I cut one side into a point.

Using a straight-edge die from the Ovals Layering Dies, I cut a 3 1/4″ oval in the pointed side of the card base.

For the inner portion, I cut a Whisper White panel and stamped the sentiment from Forever Blossoms in Pool Party in the middle.  In the corner, in Basic Gray Ink, I stamped the big and beautiful floral from the set.  Then I colored it with my Petal Pink and Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Combo packs.

I took a piece of 4 1/2″ x 5 1/8″ paper from the Parisian Blossoms Specialty DSP and scored the long edge at 3 7/8″.  Using SNAIL on that small folded section, I adhered the panel behind the inner liner on the right side.  Then I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Petal Pink mat and into the card base.

For the front sentiment, I cut two of the largest oval Stitched Shapes die and, on one of them, stamped the Forever Blossoms sentiment in Pool Party.  Then I adhered it to the second oval with Liquid Glue and then to the card front – using the oval cut-out as a guide.

To decorate the front, I used the Cherry Blossoms Dies to cut a Champagne Foil “stem” and adhered it with Liquid Glue to the left of the oval opening.

I cut a bunch of Petal Pink flowers and Pool Party leaves (these are cutting-and-embossing dies, so…spritz the card stock with water first to make lovely deep emboss lines!).  Then I used Liquid Glue and a couple of Dimensionals to adhere them ever-so-creatively to the branch!

From So Saffron, I cut more of the flowers so that I’d have their little centers – which I adhered in the middle of the Petal Pink flowers (using a little tiny piece of scotch tape on the back!).  I also cut some So Saffron flower centers and adhered them to the larger flowers.

I added a Champagne Rhinestone Jewel to the front sentiment oval and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another of the Forever Blossoms floral images in Basic Gray, Petal Pink and Pool Party on the front…

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

Et Voila!  I think that large floral in the Forever Blossoms set is one of our very prettiest, don’t you?  And the wonderful flowers, leaves and “pretties’ in the Cherry Blossoms Die set….are wunnermus!  All of which perfectly play off the Parisian Blossoms Specialty DSP!!  I hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix


Finn heard his fans.

He heard your admiration for his “up-ears” look the other day.

So…he’s decided to train.

His ears.

You know – to be “up ears” when he’s obviously a flop-ear dog.

He’s a man of the people and will do whatever is necessary to keep his fans happy.

The training is strenuous, but he’s smart – he does it in intervals.

Lay very still – ears “up” – for an hour or so.

Get up – ears naturally flop – do some “stuff”.

Repeat.  All day long.

Yes – he’s quite dedicated.  Eventually – it WILL work.  He’s certain of it!

Stampin’ Up! Stylish Ornate Garden Sneak Peek 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 sketch challenge – and I’m excited to see what everyone brings to the table!  I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop today!

The sketch this week was pretty wide open, so I figured I’d give you another want-it-whetter from the new Early Release Ornate Garden Suite!  I used the Ornate Thanks and Ornate Style stamp sets, a little Ornate Garden Specialty DSP and….my new favorite die set – Stitched So Sweetly.  Take a look see:

And here’s that sketch – maybe you’ll want to use it to jump-start your creative mojo!

Although it’s not an Easter card, I used the color palette from this week’s Sunday Stamps challenge.

I started with some Old Olive paper (the foiled design) from the Ornate Garden Specialty DSP.  Across the bottom I adhered a strip of non-foiled Old Olive paper with Liquid Glue.  Across the seam, using a little SNAIL and a couple of Glue Dots on the back, I ran a length of Terracotta Tile (I sort of interpreted that brownish color in the palette as Terracotta Tile!) ribbon from the Ornate Garden Ribbon Combo Pack.

I matted the whole thing on Pumpkin Pie to make the card front.

On a piece of Whisper White, in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, I used my Stamparatus to stamp the large floral image from the Ornate Style stamp set.

I used my Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie and Night of Navy Stampin’ Blends Combo Packs to color all the flowers except the two daisies.  Those I colored with my Pumpkin Pie Watercolor Pencil.

I added a large sentiment from Ornate Thanks in Pumpkin Pie and the smaller sentiment in Terracotta Tile.  Then I cut the image and sentiment with the largest rectangle die in the Stitched So Sweetly die set.

In the corner, I added a flourish from Ornate Style in Old Olive.  Then I popped the panel onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I tied a double length simple bow from the Terracotta Tile ribbon and adhered it with a Glue Dot.

I added some Pumpkin Pie gems from the Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the Night of Navy flowers.  A blue gem from the same Rhinestone pack finished off the card front.

On the inside, I added a Pumpkin Pie-matted strip of the Ornate Garden Specialty DSP across the bottom of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped a couple more Old Olive flourishes, too.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Pumpkin Pie mat and into my Old Olive card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got two more Old Olive flourishes on the front…

…and more of the foiled Ornate Garden Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  The Ornate Garden Suite is coming SOON – like…next week!  The anchoring bundles – Ornate Style (with the bundled Ornate Layers Die set) and Ornate Thanks (bundled with Ornate Borders) are wonderful and perfectly complement the coordinating Ornate Garden Specialty DSP!  Isn’t it exciting to be able to play with a 2020-2021 Annual Catalog Suite EARLY!?

I hope you like and are making plans to add the whole suite to your stash!

I know you want to see something about Finn today – and we will.

But first…

Shockingly – there are no sprouting seedlings!  What?!?

I mean – it’s been TWO days.  😉

I know.  I KNOW – it takes way longer than that.  But – for some reason – I can’t keep from peeeeering thru the chicken wire every morning (okay – and again in the evening) just to be sure!  And I’m unreasonably disappointed every time there’s nuthin’ but dirt.

One day, though.  One.  Day!

Okay.  Do you ever wonder what an Aussie would look like with…up-ears?  Instead of flop-ears?

Here you go.

Who are we kidding?  Up-ears, flop-ears, pointy ears,….he’s stinkin’ cute!

He also thinks I’m weird.

Stampin’ Up! No Matter the Weather March Paper Pumpkin Revealed!

Hey y’all – my March No Matter The Weather Paper Pumpkin kit got here the other day and I’d been hearing from folks that it’s an awesome kit!  So…I got into it yesterday!

As promised, this kit has an additional stamp set and the images coordinate perfectly with the “main” No Matter The Weather Paper Pumpkin stamp set!  It didn’t take me very long at all to have 12 cards (with envelopes) all ready to spread a little spring cheer and encouragement!

I love that you get TWO stamp sets – and they coordinate perfectly!

The No Matter The Weather set is the one I used mostly to make the kit per the instructions…

And the FREE extra set I used to create insides and envelope fronts (the envelopes came lined!)

So…I put the kit together exactly as directed (I’m a rule follower, what can I say!??).

In addition to the Basic Gray Ink Spot and stamp sets, there’s all the die cut images and sentiment banners/circles you’ll need.  Plus some super cute acrylic “raindrops” to add to the card fronts!

For each card, I completed the front – then did some stamping on the inside and envelope front.

This first design has a cloudy sky with bright rain boots stuffed with Spring flowers.  Those are die cuts from the kit.  Then on the inside, I stamped the flower basket in Basic Gray and added Grapefruit Grove flowers.

The envelope is lined with Shaded Spruce and I added more flowers on the front!

The second design features a line of fun rain boots – all popped up with dimensionals and embellished with wrapped Baker’s Twine in white-and-green!  I added some rain boots from the extra set – the outline image in Basic Gray and the flower-dy-fill in So Saffron.  So they weren’t just “floating” in mid-air, I added the “ground” image from the Whatever The Weather set in Basic Gray.

I repeated the boots on the front of the Petal Pink-lined envelope, too.

The final design features more rain boots stuffed with flowers – these are die cuts, popped up with Dimensionals – and an adorable bunny!  For the inside, in Pear Pizzazz, I added grasses (this might be my favorite grass image EVER!) and then a Basic Gray bunny.  These are both from the free extra set!  The little hearts – stamped in Petal Pink – are from the No Matter The Weather set.

I added more grass, bunny and hearts on the front of the So-Saffron lined envelope to complete the set.

If you enjoy a quick video how-to, then here’s one that’s just right!

If you’ve got this set – go ahead and put it together.  And  – if you want a refill of these cute cards and die cuts…here it is in the Online Store!

Next month’s kit is looking to be equally cool!

My Wonderful Family – is all about building and nurturing relationships through papercrafting.  For April, we created a fun, family appreciation themed card kit that will make it easy for you to share your heart with those you love the most: mom, dad, daughter, son, sister, and brother.  April’s kit even includes Mother’s Day and Father’s Day sentiments, giving you the perfect way to show your appreciation for beloved parents on their special days with a beautiful, handmade card.

The Paper Pumpkin team knows that everyone’s clan is unique. With that in mind, we’re providing sentiments that would include anyone in your life who feels like family; for instance, “brothers” and “sisters” who have helped you along the journey of life.

And – really?  Isn’t that connection – from afar! – especially important right now with all the craziness going on in our world?  This kit is timely in so many ways, don’t you think?

Here’s the deets:

  • Kit contains supplies for 8 cards and envelopes
  • Card size: 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″
  • Envelope size: 4-1/2″ x 5-3/4″
  • Coordinating Colors:Crushed Curry, Early Espresso, Melon Mambo, Mint Macaron, Pear Pizzazz, Shaded Spruce, Soft Sea Foam

NOTE:  In order to receive the April For My Wonderful Family kit – you must be signed up NLT 10 April.  If you sign up AFTER 10 April, then the first kit you’ll get is the May box! Got it?

Finn Fan Fix


All of Finn’s hard work in the garden is starting to pay off!

We planted this past weekend – braving drifts of pine pollen in the pursuit of….peppers!!

In years past, I’ve bought tomatoes and my most-wunnermus Ancho Magnifico Chiles as plants.  And while they worked great – they were SPENDY!  The plants themselves weren’t too bad – but SHIPPING live plants….Yikes!!

So…this year, I bought seeds and the equipment I needed to start them indoors and parlayed this…

into…

and then….

Okay – I bought those lettuce (buttercrunch) starts at the hardware last week.  Instant gratification, yes.  But those tomatoes and marigolds (mighty pest fighters!!) and TWELVE CHILE PEPPER plants!! – are all seed started in the kitchen!

We also planted spinach, turnips, mustard, and collard seeds…

And we’re building two more raised beds for the tomatillos, pole beans, yellow squash and spaghetti squash.  I hope I can make the squash work – I’ve had problems with it in the past.  Maybe THIS is the year!!

I’m sure with the help of my green-pawed-pooch, we can’t go wrong!

Stampin’ Up! Timeless Oasis Memories Aloha!

Good morning!  It’s day….whatever!…of the Big Social Distancing of 2020.  It’s hard for me to keep track – since I work from home, the only real difference is severely curtailed trips to the grocery!  And no – “let’s call the Martins and get dinner tonight” for a while.  Which I DO miss.  And our friends just postponed their April wedding…which made me sad. 🙁   But – we’re all healthy and safe.  And won’t run out of food or…craft supplies any time soon. 😉

Speaking of – one of my very favorite suites in the Jan-Jun Mini Catalog is the Tropical Oasis.  I used that one – or parts of it! – today for my card.  And – the Tropical Oasis Memories & More Card Pack is the star of this show!  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one comes from this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

Now – this is a great card if you’ve got a party or some event that you need to go to and would like to NOT have inky fingers!

That’s right – no ink.  So stamping!  A little fussy cutting and embossing.  A die cut or two.  And…that’s it!  So….hang on – this is a quickie!

I started with a piece of Pool Party card stock that I embossed in the wonderful Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder, then matted on Real Red for the card front.

With SNAIL, I adhered a length of 5/8″ Burlap Ribbon.

From the Tropical Oasis Memories & More Card Pack, I pulled out two of the small cards with the yummy looking tropical coconut drink.

From one of the panels, I fussy cut the entire image.  I fussy cut just the umbrella from the second panel.

I popped the image over the ribbon with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Then I popped the fussy cut umbrella over the first image with more Dimensionals.

Using the sentiment die from In The Tropics, I cut three of the Aloha sentiment from Real Red and stacked them all up with Liquid Glue.

I adhered the stacked sentiment to the coconut – added three red gems from the Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels….and the card front was done!

On the inside, I used two stickers from the Tropical Oasis Memories & More Card Pack on a Whisper White panel.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Real Red mat and into my Soft Suede card base, and to adhere the card front to the front of the card, and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got a couple more Tropical Oasis Memories & More Card Pack stickers on the front…

…and a little Tropical Oasis DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I love all the fun and dare I say…luscious?…designs to be found in the Tropical Oasis Memories & More Card Pack.  And – although I didn’t use it on this card – the Timeless Tropical stamp is a wonderful set filled with even more tropical images!

If you don’t have this suite – quick take advantage of the last days of Sale-A-Bration and add it to your stash (while earning FREE goodies!).  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!

Signs of Spring at Finn’s house.

You probably think that last one is a picture of the beautiful pink azalea…

Well – it IS beautiful – but…look past it to the pond.  It’s really a picture of the most TRUE sign of Spring in the South.

Pine pollen EVERYWHERE!!  LOL

Stampin’ Up! Ornate Garden Thoughtful Blooms Fun Fold with Video Tutorial for the Paper Players

Hey y’all – it’s Sunday, which means I’ve got another fun challenge for you from the Paper Players – it’s a Sketch Challenge from Claire this week and it’ll for sure jump-start your creative mojo!  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 saw a super cute fun-fold over on my friend Karen Ksenzakovic’s blog – you can check out her gorgeous version right here – and decided to CASE the fold!  I used the soon-to-be-available Ornate Garden Suite goodies.  Take a look-see:

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

 

I started with a piece of Early Espresso card stock, 4 1/4″ x 11″ that I scored with my Simply Scored Tool at 2 1/4″, 3 5/8″, 7 3/8″ and 8 3/4″.  Then I folded and burnished each score line – starting with a “valley” fold at 2 1/4″, mountain at 3 5/8″ and 7 3/8″, and finishing up with another valley at 8 3/4″.  And that was the entire fun-fold…done!

To decorate, I matted two pieces of Ornate Garden Specialty DSP on Terracotta Tile and adhered them with Liquid Glue to the two side panels.

For the middle panel, I used a different design in the DSP pack, also matted on Terracotta Tile.  With SNAIL and Glue Dots, I adhered two lengths of Old Olive ribbon (from the new Ornate Garden Ribbon Combo Pack – coming on 1 April).

I stamped the pretty flower corner image from the new Ornate Style set in Early Espresso on a piece of Whisper White.  The image is colored with my Mint Macaron and Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blends Combos and the Dark Daffodil Delight Blend.

I added the large sentiment from Ornate Thanks in Terracotta Tile – then two more in Early Espresso.  Then I cut the image with the second-to-largest rectangle die in the awesome Stitched So Sweetly Die set.

On another piece of Whisper White, I stamped flowers from the Thoughtful Blooms stamp set (FREE with a $50 purchase during Sale-A-Bration) in Terracotaa Tile (full strength and stamped-off-once) and Crushed Curry (the same).  Then I cut them all out with the Small Bloom Punch (FREE with a $100 purchase during Sale-A-Bration).

The little leaves die cuts are actually the NEGATIVE space that was left over from cutting one of the Ornate Borders die cuts from a piece of Mint Macaron.

I laid all the pieces out, then began to adhere the leaves and flowers with Liquid Glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I popped the sentiment on with Dimensionals on the left side of the rectangle.  Finally, I added some Gold Metallic Pearls to the flower centers, popped the whole thing on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card front was done!

On the back, I adhered two more Terracotta Tile-matted pieces of Ornate Garden Specialty DSP on the side panels.  On a piece of Whisper White, I stamped and colored the Ornate Style flower image.  I added another sentiment from Ornate Thanks in Terracotta Tile.

I adhered the panel to a Terracotta Tile mat and into the middle of the fun-fold card, and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another Ornate Style flower on the front…

…and a little more Ornate Garden Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Isn’t this a fun fun-fold??  Super easy and awesome to look at – and it all fits perfectly in a regular Medium (A2) envelope!  I love the Ornate Garden Suite with it’s Ornate Style and Ornate Thanks bundles anchoring the gorgeous paper.

Be looking for those – and all the goodies – in the Ornate Garden Suite on 1 April.  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


These are scary times.  I’m not going to fib you – I’m a little freaked out some days.

So – when I get that way, it helps to have my dig-dog.  The Finn-ster.  The Finny-winny.  The Finn-man.  The Finny-Bo-Binny.  The dog-a-lous.

Yes.  He’s embarrassed to admit he answers to all of the above.

Usually.

But – regardless of what I call him – he makes me smile and usually makes me feel better.

So…I wanted to share a little Finn-man cuteness.

To help us put everything into paw-spective.

Behold.

From above – this was all I could see of him….just some cute paws.

Do you think that as dogs get older – they get extra hair on their toes?  Like…we sometimes do??

That is NOT loose fur – that’s toe-feathers!! 🙂

Hope you had a minute of aaaahhhhhhhh…..

Good morning, y’all!  Hope you’ve got a great weekend at home planned!  This is our “planting” weekend – we got the peppers, tomatoes and lettuce starts in the beds last night.  The rose, raspberries and blueberries are soaking their roots in preparation for planting.  And – I’ve got flowers started to put in, too!  AND – more seeds coming soon!  I LOVE spring!

Also?  My three hydrangeas all have leaves, so…I didn’t kill them with my not-so-knowledgeable pruning this past fall!  Whoo-hoo.  I’m like…almost a Master Gardener.  Go me! 🙂

Since it’s Saturday, I figured we’d try to get together tonight on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page for a little video time together.  So…I’ll be live at 7pm Eastern and we’ll make a fun-fold that I blatantly stole from my teammate.  We’re going to take a look at the new Ornate Garden Suite…and Thoughtful Blooms.  Yes – I’m seriously in a flowerdy mood.  Take a sneaky peek!

It’s a super easy fun fold – and the Ornate Garden Suite really makes it a stand-out!  So…I hope you can join me!

Tonight.  7pm Eastern.  Right here! 🙂
