Stampin’ Up! You’re Inspiring on a Coppery Basket Weave

Merry Monday, y’all!  Well…it IS Monday – you decide if it’s Merry or not!

If you were able to join me last night for my FB Live video, I appreciate you spending part of your weekend with me!  If not, but you’d like to watch and see how I made today’s card, here’s a link to the YouTube replay!

I was celebrating the arrival of my little yellow daffodils – they took last year “off”! – and made this card with the gorgeous flower image from the You’re Inspiring stamp set.  And, after seeing a card on Pinterest (thanks for sending it, Elisha!), I wanted to try the technique.  Take a look-see: Continue reading

Stampin’ Up! True Gentleman Basket Weave

Mornin’!  Hope your weekend has started off well – and that you’re planning something fun!

My card for today is a pretty large departure from my usual style.  In that it’s not got a ton of layers, and embellishments.  No froof.

I was sort of thinking…masculine card – after I saw the color scheme at this week’s Color Throwdown.  So I pulled out some True Gentleman DSP and the Truly Tailored Bundle and put it all on top of a Basket Weave Dynamic TIEF embossed card front.  Take a look-see:

The layout – which is quite clean and simple – is courtesy of the FabFriday sketch challenge this week. Continue reading

Stampin’ Up! Lots of Springtime Petals Wreath

Well, hidey-ho, my peeps!!  Friday arrived quickly, thanks to the miracle of a Monday holiday!  Gotta love it!

I found out yesterday evening that a friend of mine had been in the hospital the past couple of days – with a flu-like illness (but not “the flu”!).  Fortunately, she (and her baby! 🙂 ) are fine and have been sent home.  But, since I’m not there to administer a hug in person, I thought I’d send her one in paper-and-ink!

So, I pulled together some of my favorite Springtime Foils Specialty DSP, a few leaves from Petals & More, and a couple of sweet sentiments from the Hanging Garden and Lots of Love stamp sets.  Take a look-see:

The inspiration for this card came from the photo in the Fusion challenge this week. Continue reading

Stampin’ Up! Picture Perfect Springtime Birthday Video Sneak Peek

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
