Stampin’ Up! Many Blessings Merry Christmas

Merry Monday, y’all!

Oxymoron much, Mare?!? 😉

Sorry to have missed you guys last night – but will be back in the swing of things next week.  Promise!

I made a quick and simple little number for you today – using the pretty new Many Blessings stamp set from the 2018 Holiday Catalog.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one came from the sketch side of this week’s Fusion challenge!

And the colors come from the FabFriday color challenge – although I hadn’t taken any Calypso Coral with me to Cali – so I substituted Grapefruit Grove!

I started with a piece of Whisper White card stock and, in Call Me Clover ink, stamped the wreath image from Many Blessings – letting it hang off the edge of the panel to create the sketch shape.  I used my Lemon Lime Twist Stampin’ Write Marker to fill in the leaves.

Then I added berries in Poppy Parade.

With my Grapefruit Grove, I stamped the little corner image – also from Many Blessings – in the three corners.  I added a little Call Me Clover with my Stampin’ Write Marker, and then adhered some small dots from the new Santa’s Workshop Enamel Shapes (in the 2018 Holiday Catalog – and a FREE gift from me for ordering one of my I Want It All Catalog Shares!).

Then I adhered the panel to a Lemon Lime Twist mat with Liquid Glue.

I inked part of the Many Blessing sentiment in Poppy Parade and half in Grapefruit Grove (pretty easy since this is a photopolymer stamp set) and stamped it on a piece of Whisper White.  Then I cut it with the label die from the Stitched Labels Framelits (2018-2019 Annual Catalog).

I popped the sentiment on with a couple of Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Finally, I tied a little bow from Grapefruit Grove Nature’s Twine and adhered it with a dab of Liquid Glue to complete the card front!

On the inside, I repeated the Many Blessings corner flourishes in Grapefruit Grove, Call Me Clover and Poppy Parade Santa’s Workshop Enamel Shapes.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Lemon Lime Twist mat and into my Poppy Parade card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got a repeat of the Many Blessings flourishes on the front…

…and I added the wreath to the envelope flap!

 

Et Voila!  I love this Many Blessings set – it’s got such lovely images and sentiments covering Fall and Christmas!  Hope you like!

Check out Many Blessings on page 46 of your Holiday Catalog!

Well – we’re back! 🙂

Did I tell you I got up early on Saturday morning and went downstairs to their fitness center?  At 3:30??!  And yes, walked/jogged on the treadmill for 45 minutes.

I felt pretty righteous, really.

Until about 7pm – then I simply…crashed! LOL!

I was missing my treadmill from the hotel on Sunday.

Yeah.  Weird, I know.

But – while the treadmill is sort of no-brainer….and easy….it’s missing an important component!

Pantaloonies! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Swirls & Curls and a Beautiful Blizzard Sneak Peek

Happy Saturday, y’all!  I hope your weekend is going well.  If all goes as planned, this will go live about the time I’m boarding the airplane to head for the house!  Finally!  Can’t wait to get me some wiggle-butt!!

For all of you who didn’t click the “x” yesterday and read and commented on my weight loss post – thank you all so much!  I was rather overwhelmed by the response – and I appreciate y’all more than you know!

As a result of all those nice comments – I went ahead and just copied the post and made it into a page you can go to – so you’ll always have ready access to the tips and the link to Lose It.  Hope it will help!

My card today is a shimmery, non-traditionally-colored Christmas card using goodies that will be available on 5 Sept in the 2018 Holiday Catalog.  I used the new Swirls & Curls TIEF, plus a little Beautiful Blizzard and Merry Christmas Thinlits.  Take a look-see:

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

I started with a piece of Highland Heather card stock and embossed it in the new Swirls & Curls TIEF.  Then I brushed it with some new Frost White Shimmer Paint.  I matted it on a piece of Smoky Slate card stock that I’d ALSO brushed with the Frost White Shimmer Paint.

Check out how shimmery this card really is! 🙂

Wowza!

I tore a little piece of new Chicken Wire Elements off and adhered it to the card front – Silver side up – with Liquid Glue.

For the snowflakes, I first brushed a piece of Whisper White card stock with Frost White and Champagne Shimmer Paint (yea – got a bit of a theme going here!) – then I cut it with the new Blizzard Thinlit die.

I adhered the smaller snowflake to the card front with Liquid Glue.

The sentiment is cut once from Smoky Slate and once from Basic Black card stocks with the new Merry Christmas Thinlits.  I brushed the Basic Black version with Frost White Shimmer Paint, adhered them in a stack (with the shimmery black one on top!) and adhered them to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I popped the last two snowflakes on with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a little bow from Silver & Pink Baker’s Twine and a few silver Metallic Shapes (which, I just now realized – are retired! 🙁  Sorry!  You could use Clear Rhinestone Basic Jewels, too )  – and that was it for the card front!

On the inside, I inked up the swirl image from the Beautiful Blizzard stamp set in Highland Heather, stamped it off once and then stamped a Whisper White panel.  I did that a few times, then added the snowflake image in full-strength Highland Heather.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Smoky Slate mat (that I’d shimmer-ized with Frost White Shimmer Paint) and then into a Powder Pink card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Beautiful Blizzard images on the front…

…and I put more Beautiful Blizzard goodness on the back of the envelope, too!

Et Voila!  This color scheme reminds my of my grandparents’ Christmas Tree when I was growing up – flocked white tree, pink and silver decorations!  So – non-traditional, for sure, but…still pretty!  Love the Swirls & Curls TIEF – especially all shimmer-ized!  And the fun Blizzard Thinlit really creates a…well…BLIZZARD of snowflakes with just one cut!  Hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Santa’s On His Way From Santa’s Workshop!

Happy Hawwmp Day, y’all!  Just a couple of sleeps and a wake-up and I’ll be on my way to Atlanta and my puppy and my ponies and kitties and hubby!  Whoo-hooo!

My card for today is cool.  Why?  Because not one ink pad was opened in the making of said card!

That’s right.  No ink.  No stamp set.  Just the wonderful Santa’s Workshop Memories & More Card pack (coming on 5 Sept in the new Holiday Catalog), a little card stock, twine and adhesive!  Take a look-see:

The fun layout was kind of loosely inspired by this week’s CAS(E) This Sketch layout.

Buckle up, buttercup – this is a quick one!

I started with the big and bold card from the Memories & More Card Pack, trimmed it a bit and matted it on Garden Green for the card front.  I wrapped a couple loops of Garden Green Baker’s Twine (coming in the new 2018 Holiday Catalog) around, securing it in the back with Glue Dots.

I trimmed the small Ho Ho Ho card, matted it on Garden Green and added it to the card front with Liquid Glue.  Then I did the exact same thing with Santa’s sleigh – he’s got some Dimensionals under the bottom and Liquid Glue for the top lefthand corner.

For my sentiment, I trimmed down a final Santa’s Workshop Memories & More Card.  It’s matted on Garden Green and popped on with a couple of Dimensionals.

I finished it off with a Garden Green Baker’s Twine bow tied around the twine already on the card and the card front was done!

On the inside – surprise! – I trimmed a big sentiment card from the pack!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the trimmed card to a Garden Green mat and then into my Poppy Parade card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got some holly stickers from the Card Pack on the front…

…and a couple more stickers on the back!

Et Voila!  A quick and fun Christmas card – and no inky fingers – thanks to all the wonderful cards and images, stickers and sentiments from the Santa’s Workshop Memories & More Card Pack!  Folks – Memories & More Card Packs…not just for scrapbooking!!  Hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Tin Tile Detailed Leaves Sneak Peek

Good morning, my peeps!  Hope your week is going well!

I’ve got a fun little card for you today with another sneak peek – including a look at one of my favorite new things in the 2018 Holiday Catalog – the Tin Tile Dynamic TIEF.   I put a Falling For Leaves sentiment and some Detailed Leaves over top.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one was inspired by the MFT Wednesday Sketch challenge this week.

I made a card with this new bundle earlier – and it looks completely different just by virtue of a totally different color scheme.  If you missed it, you can check it out right here! 🙂

I started with a piece of new Galvanized Metallic Paper (coming soon – 5 Sept! – in the Holiday Catalog), embossing it in the wonderful Tin Tile Dynamic TIEF.  Then I sponged it with Gray Granite ink – just to antique it a bit – and adhered it to a Crushed Curry mat with Liquid Glue.

I wrapped some new Merry Merlot & Copper 5/8″ Reversible Ribbon around the card front, securing it in the back with Glue Dots.

With the Detailed Leaves die, I cut two sets of leaves from Copper paper from the new Joyous Noel 6″ x 6″ Glimmer Paper pack, and adhered them to the card front with Liquid Glue.

Also using the Detailed Leaves dies, I cut two solid Crushed Curry leaves and two Merry Merlot detailed leaves.  I ran the Crushed Curry leaves thru the Big Shot in the Tin Tile Dynamic TIEF.

I used Sponge Daubers to rub Crushed Curry ink over the solid leaves, and Merry Merlot over the detailed leaves, then I adhered them together with Liquid Glue.  I stuck the top leaf down with Liquid Glue, then popped the bottom leaf on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

With a sentiment from the Falling For Leaves set, I stamped a sentiment in Merry Merlot on a Crushed Curry strip, then snipped banners in each end.  I lightly sponged the edges with more Merry Merlot, and adhered it with a Stampin’ Dimensional at each end and a little Liquid Glue in the middle.

I finished off the card front with a small bow from the Merry Merlot & Copper 5/8″ Reversible Ribbon, adhered with a Glue Dot – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped the large leaf from Falling For Leaves in Merry Merlot in the corner of a Very Vanilla panel.  Then I used my Crushed Curry Stampin’ Write Marker to color it.

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

The front of my Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got another Falling For Leaves leaf in Merry Merlot and Crushed Curry on the front…

…and I repeated the leaf on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Loving this new Falling For Leaves stamp set and the bundled Detailed Leaves Thinlits, aren’t you?  And – no one can argue that the Tin Tile Dynamic TIEF – especially when combined with a wonderful metallic paper (like the new Galvanized Metallic Paper!) – isn’t one of the coolest things to come along in a while!  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Making All the Days Bright Sneak Peek

Happy Saturday!  And it’s a REAL one, so…whoo-hooo!

Also – this time NEXT Saturday, I’ll be leavin’ on a jet plane – headed home for wiggle-butt hugs!!  WHOOO-HOOOO!!

And – I assume – a hug or two from Wayne!

But…WIGGLE-BUTT HUGS are even better!

So – my card today uses a fun little set in the new 2018 Holiday Catalog called Making All The Days Bright.  It has a little secret – although not BUNDLED with the Christmas Bulb Builder Punch – it coordinates with it perfectly!  So…when you buy the Making Christmas Bright bundle, be sure to pick this little gen up at the same time! 😉  It’s an image-only set, so I pulled out my All The Good Things set from the Annual Catalog for a couple of sentiments.  And I used a new background stamp called Buffalo Check (2018 Holiday).  Take a look-see:


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

And my color scheme was inspired by the Color Throwdown challenge.

I stamped the new Buffalo Check (which you’ll be able to get in the 2018 Holiday Catalog on 5 Sept) image in So Saffron on a Whisper White panel.  I used my Stamparatus to do it to ensure I got a good image with this large background stamp.

Then I matted the panel on a piece of Mint Macaron card stock with some Liquid Glue.  I wrapped a length of Gray Granite 1/2″ Textured Weave Ribbon around the panel, securing it in the back with Glue Dots.

Next, I cut a Mint Macaron leaf with the new Detailed Leaves Thinlits (coming 5 Sept) and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.  Over the top of that is a Colored Doily adhered with the White side up.

On a piece of So Saffron card stock, I stamped a bunch of the little “petal” image from the Making All The Days Bright set in So Saffron ink and punched them all out with the Christmas Bulb Builder Punch.  Then I lightly sponged all their edges with So Saffron ink, using a Sponge Dauber.

I cut out the smallest circle in my Circles Layering Framelits from a piece of So Saffron and used that as a base for my flower, adhering the petals one at a time with Liquid Glue.  I popped the completed flower on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

My sentiment, from All The Good Things, is stamped in Gray Granite on Whisper White and then cut out with the banner die from the Night Owl Thinlits (5 Sept).  I edged it with my So Saffron Stampin’ Write Marker and adhered it to the flower with Liquid Glue.

I tied a little Mint Macaron bow with a piece of Nature’s Twine and adhered it with a rolled up Glue Dot – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a second sentiment from All The Good Things in Gray Granite on a Whisper White panel.  Over that, I created a flower using the Make All The Days Bright image – I just stamped the petal in a circle (the image was inked and stamped-off-once each time).

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

The front of my Whisper White Medium Envelope got a repeat of the Making All The Days Bright flower – in full-strength So Saffron…

…and I added the Buffalo Check in So Saffron to the envelope flap.  I used my Stamparatus again – and used sticky notes to mask off the front of the envelope.

Et Voila!  So many new goodies to love on this card – the Making All The Days Bright is really fun (and so darned handy that it gives you a SECOND stamp set to coordinate with the Making Christmas Bright bundle!) and I LOVE the Buffalo Check! 🙂  I am also thinking that the Detailed Leaves Thinlits are going to become a go-to for leaves this season!  Hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Twinkle Sweet & Spooky Bats!

Happy Happy Hawmmp Day!

Well.  Our last event was yesterday – and I watched from my office as my guys (yes – they’re officially “my” guys!) dismantled our area.

And felt sad.

Still do.  It’s that end-of-summer-camp-and-all-my-new-friends-are-leaving feeling – remember that?  For all that I’ve been anxiously awaiting this day – I’m really going to miss this group.  I’ve done this a bunch of times, now – and…these guys have been the best.  Truly awesome professionals to work with.  And fun.  And nice to be around.  And very very good at their jobs.  Fare thee well, guys.

I always buy pizza at the end for the guys – but for this group, I also got cinnamon bread twists.

With icing!! 🙂

Yea.  That’s how much they all mean to me.

So (clearing throat….and got a little dust in my eye, I guess)…my card for the day!

I decided to do a little Halloween, with the new Spooky Sweets stamp set and bundled Spooky Bats Punch (both coming on 5 Sept in the 2018 Holiday Catalog).  I paired those with the Twinkle Builder Punch.  Take a look-see:

Good mornin’, y’all – welcome to another edition of Amy’s Inkin’ Krew team blog hop!  Each month we make projects centered around a theme – and this month we’re calling it Fall Frenzy!  We can interpret that any way we want – so…be sure to check and see everyone’s projects – we’ve got a bunch of talented ladies hopping with us this month!

I decided to ink up a new set from the 2018 Holiday catalog, called Wishing You Well.  It is absolutely gorgeous – and fits our theme perfectly – especially when added to some wood grain paper from the new Country Lane DSP.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Festive Farmhouse Country Home Sneak Peek

Good Monday, my peeps!  And welcome to the beginning of the end of Mary’s time in SoCal!  Just two weeks left and only a couple of days of the hard stuff.  Looking forward to my alarm not going off at 4am on Wednesday!  Might even do something crazy and not get to work at 7….might slow-roll-in around 8!

gasp…. 🙂

So my card today is a study in sneak peeks of the new 2018 Holiday Catalog (okay – yea – been doing that for a minute, I know!).  This one uses some gorgeous new Festive Farmhouse DSP and a great sentiment from the Country Home stamp set.  These are both available to customers on 5 Sept (and you could also get a sample of the paper in one of my DSP or I Want It All catalog shares!).  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tidings of Joy & Noel

Happy Saturday, y’all!  Wow.  Each day feels like it takes forever to get thru – but then I look up and there’s only two weeks to go!  Yikes!  The more important day is next Tuesday.  On that day, we end the “hard” grind – and transition to cruise control.  No more 4am alarm clocks for me.  Can’t tell you how happy I’m going to be about that.  And – I think I’ll probably even get the weekend off!

GASP!

So – one of the pretty new stamp sets in the 2018 Holiday Catalog is called Joy & Noel.  It’s a beautiful, two-stamp set, similar to the Floral Statements set in the Annual Catalog.  I used that set, plus the Timeless Tidings set, for my card today.  Oh – and…did I mention we’ve got new colors of Stampin’ Blends coming?  How does Shaded Spruce, Real Red, Blackberry Bliss, Calypso Coral, Basic Black and Mango Melody strike your fancy?!  Take a look-see:
