Stampin’ Up! Parisian Beauty and Blossoms 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 color 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!

When I saw the challenge, I just sort of fell on the Parisian Blossoms Specialty DSP – it just made sense.  Since I hadn’t used the Parisian Beauty stamp set, with its bundled Parisian Dies – I thought this would be a great time!  And so…take a look-see:


And here’s our color challenge!

Since I already had the colors set for me, I looked for a likely layout and found one in the Tuesday Morning Sketches challenge!

And the theme seemed to fit right in with the As you See It Challenge!

I started with some Pool Party paper from the beautiful Parisian Blossoms Specialty DSP and matted it on Pool Party card stock for the card front.

For the strip of script-y DSP, I used a Stitched Rectangle Die.  But – it wasn’t long enough so…I ran it part way thru my die cutting machine…not letting the second end cut the paper.

…then I turned the whole platform around and re-positioned the die – putting the other end at the length I needed.

And ran it back thru – only going half way again.

When finished, I had the perfect length strip – that I adhered to the card front with Liquid Glue.

My heart is actually one of the new Heart Doilies – turned over and then stamped several times in Pool Party with the scripty image from the Parisian Beauty stamp set.  Then I adhered that to the card front with Liquid Glue.  Note:  I am seeing that it looks blue in the pictures.  It’s not – it’s white!  🙁

My oval is a piece of Petal Pink Perennial Essence Vellum – cut with a Stitched Shapes Oval and then embossed in the new Parisian Flourish 3D embossing Folder.  I used some Glue Dots to adhere it to the card front.

I created the Eiffel Tower next.  With the detailed die in the Parisian Dies, I cut the shape 4 times.  Twice in Pool Party, once in Basic Gray cardstock and the last one from Champagne Foil.

I adhered the two Pool Party cuts together in a stack with Liquid Glue.  Then I added the Champagne die cut on top.  On the back of the stack, I stuck some Black Mini Dimensionals – then I popped the stack onto the Basic Gray die cut – offsetting it a little bit to create a shadow effect.

I adhered the tower to the card front with Liquid Glue.

For the sentiment, I first embossed more of the Petal Pink Perennial Vellum in the Parisian Flourish 3D Embossing Folder.  Then I used a rectangle from the Stitched So Sweetly Die set to cut a backer for my die cut sentiment.  Once again, it wasn’t the size I needed.  So…I cut the rectangle and then cut it AGAIN – adjusting the die to get down to the size I wanted!

I cut the sentiment – which is a die in the Parisian Dies set – three times in Pool Party and stacked them up with Liquid Glue.  Then I adhered the stack to my Vellum rectangle with Liquid Glue.  I put a few double-stacks of Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back of the rectangle – hiding them behind the sentiment – and adhered it over the Eiffel Tower.

I used a Glue Dot to adhere a small bow tied from Petal Pink 1/4″ Metallic-Edge Ribbon, added some Champagne Rhinestones and the card front was done.

On the inside, I added a second Parisian Beauty sentiment in Pool Party on a Whisper White panel.  Over top, in stamped-off-once Petal Pink, I added the script image and a few of the fluer-de-doo’s….then I finished with a Champagne Rhinestone.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Pool Party mat and into my Basic Gray card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more stamped-off-once script and fluer-de-doo’s….I also added the “Tower stamp” image a few times – with the “cancelled” lines over them – up in the top left-hand corner.

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

Et Voila!  How gorgeous is this Parisian Blossoms bundle with it’s stunning detailed Parisian Dies??

I love how this card turned out – the stacked tower looks so cool!  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Botanical Prints Product Medley Thank You

Happy happy….well.  YOU know!  It’s the middle of the week – and it’s a short one at that.  Gotta love a four-day work week, right?!? 🙂

The new 2020 Jan – Jun Mini Catalog has a wonderful Product Medley – called the Botanical Prints Medley.  A product medley is a group of papers, embellishments, stamps and dies carefully curated by Stampin’ Up! to help crafters create all sorts of projects.  I used it to create today’s card.  Take a look-see:


The layout for this one is from this week’s Fab Friday challenge.

I started with some Pretty Peacock DSP (part of the Botanical Prints Product Medley) and adhered it to the front of my Pretty Peacock card base with Liquid Glue.

The art work is a piece of Whisper White, matted on Terracotta Tile.  I wrapped some Terracotta Tile 1/2″ Scalloped Linen Trim around the panel, securing it in the back with Glue Dots.

I stamped the pretty berry image from the Botanical Prints stamp set (included in the Medley) in Tuxedo Black on a seperate piece of Whisper White.  I cut them out with their matching die.

I colored those die cut berries with my Pretty Peacock and Old Olive Light Stampin’ Blends.  You don’t really even need the Dark blends – the shading lines in the images do all the work for you! 🙂

I laid the die cuts onto the art panel and used them to determine where to stamp two more berry images in Tuxedo Black.  These I left uncolored.

I popped the two die cut berries onto the card front with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The Botanical Prints sentiment is stamped in Terracotta Tile on one of the banners included in the Product Medley – and then popped over the ribbon with Dimensionals.

I added a Linen Thread double-loop bow with a Glue Dot on the left side – and one of the sweet little bee embellishments (yep – from the Botanical Prints Product Medley) on the right – also with a Glue Dot.  Then a few Pretty Peacock gems from the Noble Peacock Rhinestones finished off the card front!

On the inside, I added a couple more of the berries in Tuxedo Black – coloring them with the Pretty Peacock and Old Olive Light Stampin’ Blends – to a Whisper White panel.  I also added some more of the Noble Peacock Rhinestones! 🙂

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Terracotta Tile mat and into the Pretty Peacock card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more colored berries on the front…

…and some more of that beautiful Botanical Prints DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Wow – what a beautiful grouping of goodies this is!  Botanical Prints will bring you a lovely stamp set – with  coordinating dies – botanic print designer paper, labels, die cut images, laser cut panels and…the bees!  THE BEES!!!

Got video?

Yep.  Right here!  Check it out.  And then…get the Botanical Prints Product Medley for yourself.  I hope you like!

School is hard.

Even when school is shrouded in play and accompanied by copious treats.

Day 2 of Treiball basics.  We played – go to your mat.

He liked it but….school can really kick your pantaloonies!

Hard to say, though, whether he’s “pooped” or “stuffed”.  This COULD be a training-treat-coma… 😉

Stampin’ Up! Country Clubhouse for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Positive Thoughts

Good morning, y’all!  Hope you’re headed into a good and relatively stress-free week!!

Before we get going – I’ve got THREE extra Single Paper Shares ready to go if anyone wants them.  $15 +$5 for first class shipping gets you 48 – 6″ x 6″ sheets of beautiful new Designer Series Papers – and 6 Best Dressed 3″ x 3″ Note Cards and Envelopes.  Let me know ASAP if you want one or more of these packs of gorgeous paper! 🙂

I’ve got a very feminine card for you today – using the new Positive Thoughts stamp set. It also uses two wonderful Coordination Products that will be available to you on 4 Feb – the Nature’s Thoughts dies and the Pleased As Punch DSP.  Take a look-see!

The soft color palette is from this week’s CAS Colors & Sketches challenge.

And I think it’s pretty feminine so… I’ll enter it in the Water Cooler Wednesday challenge!

I started with a piece of Petal Pink gingham paper from the new Pleased As Punch DSP and matted it on So Saffron for the card front.

Next, using the large rectangle die in the Nature’s Thoughts Dies, I cut out a piece of Whisper White.

On that panel, I stamped the large leaf image from Positive Thoughts several times without re-inking in Bermuda Bay.  Then I added the fluer-d-doo image in So Saffron – again stamping several times without re-inking.

Then I adhered the panel to the card front with Liquid Glue.

Next up was to stamp and cut all the elements for the collage.  I stamped the big leaf image in Bermuda Bay on Whisper White and cut it with the die in Nature’s Thoughts.  I stamped two Petal Pink flowers and three Daffodil Delight butterflies and cut them out as well.  Then I cut two feathers – one in Whisper White and one in Petal Pink Perennial Essence Vellum Card Stock.  Finally, a few Bermuda Bay leaf die cuts joined the pile!

The sentiment – from Positive Thoughts – is stamped in Bermuda Bay on the Perennial Essence Vellum and cut with an Ornate Frames Die (carried over from the Holiday Catalog).

With everything cut and ready, I built the collage – adding and moving pieces around until it looked right.

Then I took it’s picture!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere all the pieces – starting with the large Bermuda Bay leaf and building the layers.  When I got to the sentiment – I used Glue Dots (they’re pretty easy to “hide” when using Vellum!).  Finally – the last flower is popped on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I used Liquid Glue to tuck the Bermuda Bay die cut leaves in here and there into the collage and then added a bow tied with Petal Pink 5/8″ Striped Organdy Ribbon with a Glue Dot.

A few Champagne Rhinestone Jewels finished off the card front.

On the inside, I added the large Positive Thoughts leaf in Bermuda Bay on a Whisper White panel, stamping it a few times without re-inking.  I also added a second sentiment in Bermuda Bay.  Over the sentiment, in stamped-off-once Petal Pink, I stamped the feather image from the stamp set.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a So Saffron mat and into my Bermuda Bay card base, added the card front with Liquid Glue and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Bermuda Bay leaves on the front…

…and more of the Pleased As Punch DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I love this color scheme and the Positive Thoughts stamp set is just gorgeous!  Thank you, Stampin’ Up!, for the Nature’s Thoughts Dies so we can easily cut out all the wonderful images in the stamp set!!

The Pleased As Punch DSP is amazeballs!  The back of the design I used here has hearts – and they all get punched with the new Hearts Punch Pack!!

Whoo-hoo!  I hope you like!

4 Feb is a long time to wait for these wonderful Coordination Products, isn’t it?  Want them now?  Well – all you have to do is take advantage of the AWESOME Sale-A-Bration Joining Special and join the team right now!  Then you can pre-order ALL the new goodies!  Holler at me and I’ll get you all hooked up!

Finn is a bit of a…daredevil!

He takes risks.

Like…

It’s his favorite spot to sleep when we’re all in the living room

He risks squish-i-fication at any moment.

Cuz…he gets so far under there that he’s pretty hard to see.  So…it’s pretty darned easy to forget he’s there!

Goofy thing.

Stampin’ Up! Beautifully Braided Borders for The Paper Players

Hey y’all – happy Sunday!

I’m sorry about last night – I hate missing our Facebook Live sessions! 🙁  And the weather stayed relatively tame for us – a lot of rain and wind and lightning.  Power DID stay on – but…we really never know, right?  I had my battery lantern right handy!  So – it did seem safer to cancel than to have the lights go out right when I was putting on my 4th dimensional! You’d never know how MANY dimensionals I put on!!  The not-knowing would have just eaten you up!! 😉

The card you WOULD have seen me make uses the new Beautifully Braided bundle and the color scheme is from this week’s The Paper Players challenge.  Take a look see!

And here’s this week’s Paper Players challenge!

I hope you’ll join us and show us your projects! 🙂

I also borrowed a layout from the TGIF Challenges sketch.

I started with a piece of Rich Razzleberry card stock that I embossed in the new Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder and matted it on Old Olive for the card front.

I used the Braided Border Punch to cut “braids” from Vellum card stock and Rich Razzleberry paper from the Royals 6″ x 6″ DSP.  I snipped the braids into 3 – 4″ lengths and then…adhered them like pick-up-sticks on the card front with Liquid Glue!

You can see that I used both sides of the DSP – the different designs add extra texture and interest to the monochromatic background.  I think! 🙂

I wrapped some Linen Thread twice around the card front – securing it in the back with Glue Dots.

For the sentiment panel, I stamped the Beautifully Braided sentiment in Poppy Parade on Whisper White.  Next to it, in Old Olive, I used my Stamparatus to add the large floral outline image.

I added the painterly fill-in image with more Old Olive.

Then I cut it out with the largest label-die in the Stitched So Sweetly Die set and popped it over the Linen Thread with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

A double-loop Linen Thread adhered with Glue Dots and some Poppy Parade and Gold sequins from the Peaceful Poppies Sequin Assortment adhered with Liquid Glue finished off the card front.

On the inside, I added a second sentiment from Beautifully Braided in Poppy Parade on a Whisper White panel.  Then I used my Stamparatus again to add the big floral image in Old Olive.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to an Old Olive mat and into my Thick Whisper White card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got the big floral image on the front…

…and more of the Rich Razzleberry Regals DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  What a fun bundle – I love the sentiments and big floral in the Beautifully Braided stamp set and the Braided Border punch is super easy to use to create fun elements for your projects!  I hope you like!

Now – before you reach for your ink and papers, check out what our amazing team has created to inspire you this week:

Finn Fan Fix


Finn FINALLY has a horse he can herd to his heart’s content with zero worry of ending up in the puppy ER!

Is it hard to tell this is a “horse” what with him herding-up-all-over it!?!?

Everyone has a different version of “herding”, okay??

For some people it looks a lot like slobbery gnawing!

Whatever works, right?

Stampin’ Up! Best Dressed Thoughtful Blooms Notecard Set

Happy Tuesday!  Here we go again – the week is flying by!  You’re almost out of days to take advantage of my Double Peppermints Ordering Special (that ends on the 10th) and my Catalog Special Bundles (those will end on the 17th).  So….you know what you need to do!

For today – I made a really simple little set of note cards using the Thoughtful Blooms stamp set (a $50 level Sale-a-Bration Reward) and the coordinating Small Bloom Punch (a $100 level Sale-A-Bration Reward).  And I decorated a Mini Pizza Box to create a giftable set!  Take a look-see:

And here’s what’s on the inside!

Those are the sweet Best Dressed 3″ x 3″ Note Cards & Envelopes – aren’t they cute?  The little envelopes even have liners!

For the note cards, I used the Thoughtful Blooms stamp set to add a sentiment in Blueberry Punch to the front of each card.

I added a large-ish stem and leaves image in Pear Pizzazz.  Then I used the large variety of flower images in the set to add flowers and berries in Rococo Rose, Highland Heather, Petal Pink and Blueberry Bushel.

I decorated all three cards similarly – keeping a cohesive look to make it a “set”!  I added some Champagne Rhinestone Jewels to the flower centers because Champagne.  Rhinestone.  Jewels.  Hello?!?

This inside of the cards got a second Thoughtful Blooms sentiment in Blueberry Bushel – and more flowers!

I didn’t do a darned thing to the envelopes – didn’t have to!  They’re decorated for me!

With the note cards finished, I moved on to the Mini Pizza Box.

I cut a piece of Whisper White to 3″ x 3″ and added my sentiment in Blueberry Bushel – and some leaves and flowers like I’d done on the cards.  I also used the striped flower from Thoughtful Blooms to stamp a few Daffodil Delight flowers on a piece of Best Dressed 6″ x 6″ DSP and a couple of Petal Pink flowers on Whisper White.

I added some Blueberry Bushel centers and punched the flowers out with the Small Blooms Punch.  I adhered them all with Liquid Glue – and stuck a Champagne Rhinestone Jewel in all the flower centers!

Finally, I matted the square on Petal Pink and again on more of the Daffodil Delight Best Dressed DSP and….adhered it to the top of my Mini Pizza box with Liquid Glue!

Et Voila!  I have to say, the Thoughtful Blooms is a really nice flower-builder stamp set – the images are pretty perfect and I love the sentiments!  The Small Bloom Punch makes it super easy to add dimension to your projects!  I hope you like!

Sometimes – I have to look twice.

It’s pretty easy to see here – in a photo – but when you walk into the room and look down in the kennel and see….

It’s truly not always easy to see which end is which.

He kinda looks like a push-me-pull-you sometimes…. 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Coastal Timeless Tropical Oasis 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!

For today’s card, I went back to the gorgeous Tropical Oasis suite of goodies.  Uhm – you can get this TOMORROW!!  Whoo-hoo!!  I used the Timeless Tropical stamp set and bundled In The Tropics Die set, combined with some pretty “quiet” Tropical Oasis DSP.   Take a look-see:

And here’s the sketch!

I started with some solid-ish designed paper from the Tropical Oasis DSP and matted it on Grapefruit Grove for the card front.  the center panel is more Tropical Oasis DSP, embossed in the Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder and matted on Grapefruit Grove.  I adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

On Very Vanilla cardstock, I stamped three sets of palm trees from the Timeless Tropical stamp set, using the marker-to-rubber coloring technique.  This technique is made super easy with the Stamparatus! Put the cardstock in place – put the stamp in place – and you can stamp as many times as you need – layering that color to make gorgeous images!

First I colored the leaves with Pear Pizzazz – using my Stampin’ Write Marker and directly inking the rubber stamp image.  Then I stamped it.  Next, I added some Old Olive and stamped it.  I also made one tree where I used Mint Macaron and Old Olive, for a little different look!  Each tree looks just a little different – even using the same colors on them.  Love!

I used the same technique for the trunks – using Soft Suede and Early Espresso Stampin’ Write Markers.  Then I cut the trees with their coordinating die in the In The Tropics Die set.

I cut another piece of the brown Tropical Oasis DSP and matted it on Grapefruit Grove.

I added two palm trees to the card front with Liquid Glue – leaving one trunk on the left-side tree “loose” so I could slide the small sentiment panel underneath.

I added the small panel with Liquid Glue – and then adhered that loose trunk down, too.

The final tree has Stampin’ Dimensionals under the leaves and Liquid Glue on the trunk.

I cut out three “aloha” sentiments from Grapefruit Grove using the die in In The Tropics.  These are adhered together in a stack with Liquid Glue – then adhered to the card front with more Liquid Glue.

An Old Olive gem from the Noble Peacock Rhinestones finished it off.

On the inside, I stamped a second sentiment from Tropical Oasis in Grapefruit Grove on a Very Vanilla panel – then I stamped some trees in the same way that I’d done on the front.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Grapefruit Grove mat and into my Early Espresso card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got more of the Timeless Tropical trees on the front…

…and some more Tropical Oasis DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  The Timeless Tropical stamp set is absolutely perfect for coloring!  The images were just made for the marker-to-rubber technique – and really allow you to make some realistic looking trees!  And no one can deny the stunning beauty of the Tropical Oasis DSP, right?  Gorgeous!  I hope you like!
