Happy Thursday, y’all – and welcome to another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!! It’s color week and we’ve got the full complement of hoppers…. so be sure to check out all their projects when you’re done here, won’t you?
I inked up a new-to-me stamp set called Beautiful Day from the 2018 Occasions Catalog. I’d seen a lovely card out in the ether that had a large flower embossed on Vellum and colored and I remembered how much I liked the technique. So, I decided to use the flower in the Beautiful Day stamp set to create my own paper stained glass window. Take a look-see:
I played along with our color sketch, of course… Continue reading
Happy Monday, y’all! And I can say that with a totally straight face – no work means Happy Monday! 🙂
If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video – thanks for spending part of your long-weekend with me! If not, but you’d like to see how to make this card, here’s the instant-ish replay on YouTube:
I used the new Sale-A-Bration Springtime Foils Specialty DSP (FREE – and available now with a $50 purchase!) and the Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set – and a little surprise from the February Paper Pumpkin! – to make today’s birthday card. Take a look-see:
This one used the sketch from the MFT Wednesday Card Challenge for the layout. Continue reading
Good morning! It’s Sunday – the weather is simply…spectacular here! It’s been in the low 70’s with clouds that finally broke up in the breeze to leave bright blue skies and big ole puffies floating by!
Makes a girl’s brain turn to the garden! Which is evidenced by my order at Territorial Seed today – and my planned order from Burpee! I spent some time this morning prepping beds for the coming planting time! Wonderful way to spend a couple hours – with my good dog snoozing in the shade close by.
So – since it is Sunday, then you won’t be surprised to be getting a sneak peek of tonight’s Facebook Live video! I’ll be on at 8pm eastern (that’s our usual time, remember!) over on my Stamps-N-Lingers Facebook Page!
I’m probably going to bore you – cuz I’m using the Springtime Foils Specialty DSP again, but…I think you’ll like this one. Here’s a sneaky peek!
So – I hope you’ll be able to join me tonight – remember, 8pm eastern. Here’s a link right to the page! Continue reading
Happy Saturday, my peeps! Hope your weekend has started off well! Mine started yesterday when I put my work phone on the charger – where it’ll stay until Tuesday morning. Whoo-hooo for three day weekends!
My card today is for Mother’s Day. Probably not for my mom – cuz…surprise…blown! But – you guys could make this for your moms. It uses the pretty stamp set from the 2018 Occasions catalog called A Mother’s Flair. And – cuz I’m obsessed! – a little of the Springtime Foils Specialty DSP. Take a look-see:
I borrowed the layout from the Freshly Made Sketches challenge this week: Continue reading
Happy Happy Friday! And – it’s a Friday before a three-day weekend! Whoo-hoo!
AND – it’s the day for the release of the new SAB goodies and my One Day Even Sweeter Sticky Sweet Ordering Special! This special is only good today, y’all – so…git ‘er done! 🙂
My friend from work recently got a new job – a promotion! – so I wanted to make a card for her. It uses the third new Sale-A-Bration goody – the Eclectic Expressions stamp set – as well as a 2018 Occasions set called Amazing Congratulations. Take a look-see:
This clean and simple card uses colors from this week’s Global Design Project. Continue reading
Happy Thursday, y’all – and welcome to another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!! It’s sketch week and we’ve got a couple new ladies-who-hop…. so be sure to check out all their projects when you’re done here, won’t you? I decided to use some more of the Springtime Foils Specialty DSP – shocker! – today and paired it with a yet-to-be-inked stamp set called Hello Easter. Guess what kind of card I made?!
Guess. Then take a look-see:
And…here’s the sketch! Continue reading
Happy Valentine’s Day, y’all! Hope you’ve got a little something fun and romantic planned, if that’s your thing. If not, and you tend to think of your significant other as your Valentine every day, then…today’s card will be right up your alley!
I used the Heart Happiness stamp set and two new goodies from the second Sale-A-Bration release (coming on Friday, 16 Feb!) – the Springtime Foils Specialty DSP and the wondrous Basket Weave Dynamic TIEF. And with all these fun tools, I made a clean and simple Valentine’s card for you. Take a look-see:
I loosely used the sketch at this week’s Sunday Stamps challenge for my layout: Continue reading
Happy Tuesday, folks – and welcome to another edition of the Stamp Ink Paper challenge!
We had a Tic-Tac-Toe challenge this week – one of my favorites! In honor of Valentine’s Day (it’s tomorrow, in case you’ve lost track!) I used the Heart Happiness stamp set and the Sure Do Love You bundle. On top of some of my fave DSP – the Wood Textures DSP. Take a look-see:
In case you want to play along – and why wouldn’t you?!? – here’s the Stamp Ink Paper #137 Tic-Tac-Toe board. I went right down the middle column – what will you create!? 🙂 Continue reading
Happy Saturday! Whoo-hooo!!! I don’t even care that it’s going to rain all the weekend thru. It’s. The. Week. END!!
I’ve shown you a little peek of the new Sale-A-Bration goodies coming with the second release on 16 Feb. One of those, the Springtime Foils DSP – is showcased on my card for today. I combined it with some images from the Perennial Birthday and You’re Inspiring stamp sets. Take a look-see:
Yes. There’s fussy cutting. It’s me, people. I like to cut! But never fear – it’s easy fussy cutting! Continue reading
Happy Friday, y’all! The week is drawing to a close and, for me, it’s doing it from Huntsville! Found out on Wednesday that I had to come over here the next day to get my computer updated and pick up my new work phone. So – typing this post on Thursday evening from my hotel in Huntsville. Will head home Friday afternoon!
Got some fun plans for tomorrow – a friend and I are going to a StampNStorage pop-up sale on the north side of Atlanta! 20% off everything AND 30% off Magnetic cards! And we can walk right out with them. Whoo-hoo!
Now – my card for you today has no stamping! A little bit of ink from a Stampin’ Blend – but…no stamps were inked in the making of this card! Just some pretty Painted With Love DSP, the Sweetheart TIEF (Annual Catalog), the Basket Weave Dynamic TIEF (be prepared to see a lot of this one, y’all! And – BE READY TO GET IT NEXT WEEK!!) and some die cuts from the pretty Sunshine Wishes Thinlits. Take a look-see:
I was playing along with the theme challenge from The Paper Players this week. Continue reading
