Stampin’ Up! Aloha in the Timeless Tropics

Good morning, y’all!  Do you realize that we’re like…exactly half-way thru Sale-A-Bration??  Which means – there’s still time for you to take advantage of the AWESOME joining special we’ve got going on!  And I would sure love to have you join the team – ask me how!!

My card today is from one of my very favorite suites in the 2020 Jan – Jun Mini Catalog – the Tropical Oasis Suite!!  It’s a card that would work great for a retirement – a bon voyage – or just someone who needs to be reminded to chill out and relax every once in a while!  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one comes from this week’s As You See It challenge.

I started with the woven-design paper from the Tropical Oasis DSP and embossed it in the Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder.  Then I matted it on Mango Melody for the card front.

On a piece of Whisper White, I stamped the large flower from Timeless Tropical in Saddle Brown Stazon Ink.  I colored both of them with my Light Mango Melody Stampin’ Blend, adding some additional color with the Light Calypso Coral Blend.  Then I cut them with the matching die in the In the Tropics die set.

I used an Old Olive design from the DSP and cut out a pineapple top and several smaller leaves.  I did the same from a piece of Mossy Meadow card stock (I spritzed the card stock lightly with water, first).

I also cut a strip of another design in the Tropical Oasis DSP and bannerized both ends with Paper Snips.

Finally, I cut three of the Aloha sentiment dies from In the Tropics in Mango Melody and stacked them up with Liquid Glue.

Then – time to collage-i-fy!

I laid everything out – including a short length of 5/8″ Burlap Ribbon…

…and when I liked it – I started building!

I adhered the first stamped flower with Liquid Glue – then added pineapple tops and leaves, all with Liquid Glue.

Then I added the bannerized DSP strip.

I popped the second stamped flower on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

With a little strip of SNAIL, I adhered the Burlap Ribbon.  Then I used Liquid Glue to adhere the stacked sentiment.

I cut several little In the Tropics flowers from Daffodil Delight and Terracotta Tile and adhered them together and then to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I tied a simple bow with a double length of Grapefruit Grove twine from the Nature’s Twine pack and adhered it with a Glue Dot.  Then I added some Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the little flower centers and the card front was done!

On the inside, I used my Stamparatus to stamp the sentiment and trees from Timeless Tropical.  I inked the sentiment in Mango Melody and stamped it on a Whisper White panel.  Then I used a Sponge Dauber to lightly add Terracotta Tile ink to just the tops of the letters and stamped it again.  I did that until I was happy – with a sort of “sunset” look to the sentiment.  For the trees – I did Marker-to-Rubber to color the stamps, with Pear Pizzazz and Old Olive Stampin’ Write Markers on the tree-tops and Crumb Cake and Soft Suede Markers for the trunks.  Another Champagne Rhinestone found its way onto the panel, too!

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Timeless Tropical trees on the front…

…and some Tropical Oasis DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Boy – I do LOVE this Timeless Tropical bundle with the beautiful In the Tropics Dies – look how great they are for making lush, tropical collages!!  Don’t miss out on making leaves from the Tropical Oasis DSP, either!!  Such fun.  I hope you like!

So – the other night Wayne and I went over to our friend’s for dinner.  Finn stayed home sleeping.

While we were there, I gathered a little….evidence.

This is Jax.

Please note the intense and highly focused stare.

Do you recognize the dude with the Fritos?  Perhaps the hat is a clue??

Does this picture remind you of….any OTHER picture you’ve ever seen?

I believe we’ve identified the common denominator…. 😉

Stampin’ Up! Layered With Kindness Thank You

‘Sup, y’all??  Hope you’re enjoying a three-day weekend!  🎶🎵🎶Happy Birthday, Mr. Presssideeeeeeentttt…… 🎵🎶🎶  🙂

My card today uses the new Layered with Kindness stamp set, with the coordinating Label Me Fancy and Label My Lovely Punches.  I added a little Parisian Flourish Embossing, just for ducks.  Take a look-see:

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

And the color scheme is from the Color Throwdown challenge…

I started with a piece of Whisper White that I embossed in the Parisian Flourish 3D Embossing Folder, then matted on Highland Heather for the card front.  The next layer is a strip of Smoky Slate checked paper from the Neutrals 6″ x 6″ DSP, matted on Highland Heather and adhered with Liquid Glue.

I wrapped a length of Mint Macaron 1/8″ Sheer Linen Ribbon around the DSP panel, securing it in the back with Glue Dots.

For the art panel, I stamped the beautiful DistINKtive leaves image from the Layered in Kindness set in Mint Macaron on a piece of Whisper White.  I stamped the leaves twice without re-inking, then turn the paneled 180 degrees and stamped them from that direction – again twice without re-inking.  Using the sweet little flower image, I stamped a few times by the leaves in Highland Heather.

Then I matted the panel on Highland Heather and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

On a piece of Smoky Slate, I stamped the Happy Birthday image from the Layered With Kindness set in Mint Macaron ink.  Then I cut it with the Label Me Lovely Punch and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

On Whisper White, in Highland Heather ink, I stamped the thank you sentiment.  Then I cut IT out with the Label Me Fancy Punch and popped it over the Smoky Slate label with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I tied a little bow from the Mint Macaron 1/8″ Sheer Linen Ribbon and adhered it with a Glue Dot.  To finish things off, I added some Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the centers of the flowers.  And that was it for the card front!

On the inside, I stamped the leaves in Mint Macaron – twice without re-inking – on the bottom of a Whisper White panel and added some Highland Heather flowers.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Highland Heather mat and into my Smoky Slate card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more flowers and leaves from Layered With Kindness on the front…

…and another piece of Smoky Slate checkered paper on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Wow – how pretty did those Layered With Kindness flowers and leaves turn out in Mint Macaron and Highland Heather?!?  I love this flower image – it’s one of my favorites now that I’ve played with it a bit!  I have no idea what kind they are – but I’d sure love a giant field of them outside my house!  The coordinating Label Me Lovely and Label Me Fancy Punches are perfect with this set, too!

I hope you like and are adding this little group to your must-have list!

Did you know…you could pick this whole threesome and STILL have $71 dollars left over to spend if you bought a Starter kit today?  PLUS – you’d get the super cool Mini Cutter, a sampler pack of Designer Paper AND your choice of ANY STAMP SET in the Catalog!!  WOWZA!!  Give me a holler and let me help you join my Stampin’ Up! team today – I’d love to have you on board! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Welcome Easter Video Sneak Peek

Happy weekend, y’all!  For some of you – I hope for a LOT of you! – this is a LONG weekend to celebrate all the Presidential birthdays.

Hmmm.  I’m sort of glad most of us don’t get “lumped” into a single birthday, aren’t you?!?

To celebrate their birthdays (not really – but it’s the only gift I’ve got!), I’ll be going live tonight at 7pm Eastern on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page.  Yes, for a minute I’ll keep doing our Saturday videos on Facebook….eventually that may transition to YouTube like our mid-week vids!  For tonight, we’re going to make a sweet little birthday card using the Welcome Easter set (2020 Jan – Jun Mini Catalog) and the Happy Birthday To You set from the first Sale-A-Bration release.  Take a sneaky peek:

It’s a cutie and I think you’ll like it – so I hope you’ll be able to join me!

Tonight.  7pm Eastern.  Right here!

Welcome to our classroom!

The Equipment.

The ball.  Not quite tall enough (I don’t’ think) but…will work to start!

We’ve also got a clicker and a treat pouch loaded with yummy things.

And a purple sticky note as a “target” (Sticky notes – what would I do without them?!?).  UNDER the sticky note is a little smear of….peanut butter.

The Student.

 

Nose-on ball.  Click.

Nose not on ball.  No Click.

Click.

No click.

Repeat until 1) the treats run out or….

…the student leaves to get a drink!  School is thirsty work!

Boring stuff but…the start of learning to “push”! 😉

Stampin’ Up! Birthday Bonanza Buddies for the Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Good morning, 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 our theme is Birthdays!  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 went back to the uber-cute Bonanza Buddies bundle with the fun Birthday Bonanza DSP for my offering today.  Take a look-see:

Along with our theme challenge, I borrowed a layout from this week’s Sunday Stamps challenge.

I started with a toucan-strewn paper from the Birthday Bonanza DSP and matted it on Bermuda Bay for the card front.  Then I adhered a smaller piece, also matted on Bermuda Bay.

For the tags, I cut 2″ x 4″ pieces of the Birthday Bonanza DSP and one of Whisper White.  Then I punched the bottom with the Banner Triple Punch and the top with the Scallop Tag Topper Punch.

So…let’s take a pause right here.  If you’re looking at the Bonanza Dies, you MIGHT be asking why-oh-why, Mary?  Why didn’t you use the TAG DIE?!?

And that’s valid.  And my answer?

Uhm….I’m goofy?? 😉

If you make this card, you can absolutely use that very die.  OR – you can use the two punches.  EITHER will make a totes-adorbs card!

Okay – on with our show.

I adhered the DSP tag to the card front with Liquid Glue.

On the white tag, I stamped a Bonanza Buddies sentiment in Bermuda Bay ink.  Above that, I stamped the toucan in Tuxedo Black.  I colored his beak with my Terracotta Tile, Mango Melody and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Write Markers.

I stamped a party hat in Terracotta Tile on a second piece of Whisper White and cut it with the matching die in the Bonanza Dies.

I ran two pieces of So Saffron twine from the Metallic Baker’s Twine & Sequins Combo Pack (a $50 Level 1 SAB Reward) thru the top of the tag and tied a double-length bow around it.  Then I popped the tag onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added the party hat with a Stampin’ Dimensional.

Using Liquid Glue, I added some sequins from the Combo Pack – and a tiny Bermuda Bay Pompom atop the party hat and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a second Bonanza Buddies sentiment in Bermuda Bay to a Whisper White panel.  I added a Terracotta Tile party hat (complete with Bermuda Bay Pompom).  In the corner, I stamped a stack of presents – using 2 sticky note masks.  Here’s the order:

  1. Stamp the Terracotta Tile present.
  2. Stamp the Bermuda Bay ribbon onto the present.
  3. Cover it with the mask.
  4. Stamp the Daffodil Delight present.
  5. Stamp the Terracotta Tile ribbon onto the Daffodil Delight gift
  6. Cover the Daffodil Delight gift with a mask.
  7. Stamp the vertical Bermuda Bay gift.
  8. Stamp the Terracotta Tile ribbon onto the Bermuda Bay gift
  9. Remove all the masks

I added a few Sequins around the gifts with Liquid Glue.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Bermuda Bay mat and into my Mango Melody card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another stack of Bonanza Buddies presents on the front…

…and I added a little more of the Birthday Bonanza DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  These little critters in the Bonanza Buddies stamp set – with the handy Bonanza Dies to cut them all out! – is seriously cute and perfect for creating birthday cards!!  I hope you like!

Now that you’ve seen my card, I hope you’ll take a little time to jump thru all the other projects we have to share. Click any name below, or you can use the Previous Blog button to jump to Akiko’s page or the Next Blog button to see what Karen’s been up to!

Stampin’ Up! Heartfelt Heart to Heart Valentine

Well – good day-after-Super-Bowl Sunday (and also – day after Groundhog Day!).  Did you watch the game?  We did.  No dog in this year’s hunt, but…it’s the thing to do, right??  And boy – I’m glad we did!  What a great game!  KC – talk about keeping their heads up and driving thru to the other side.  I was real happy to see them win.  In the immortal words of Sir Alexander Dane: Never give up. Never surrender!

Also – apparently Spring is right around the corner.  Whether your team won or lost – there’s THAT to hang on to!

My card today is another one for Valentine’s Day – this one aimed at a card for a friend (versus a card for a spouse or other romantic interest!).  I used the Heart to Heart stamp set and the Heartfelt Bundle – with it’s cool Heart Punch Pack!  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is inspired by the My Favorite Things Wednesday Sketch Challenge.

And the color palette of grays, red and white comes from this week’s Color Throwdown.

I needed to start with the sentiment strip and the DSP strip so that I’d know where to stamp all my hearts!  A little different order of doing things, huh?

I stamped the sentiment from the Heart to Heart stamp set in Basic Gray on a strip of Whisper White.  Then I snipped a banner end.

I laid the strip on a Whisper White panel and used that as the starting point for the stamped hearts.

With the smaller lacy heart image from the Heartfelt set, I stamped twice in Real Red.  Then I pulled out the small heart images from the Heart to Heart set and stamped them in Real Red, Basic Gray and Smoky Slate.

Then I matted the panel on Real Red to make the card front.

On the side, I added a Real Red-matted strip of Basic Gray paper from the Neutrals 6″ x 6″ DSP, adhering it with Liquid Glue.

Using the scalloped punch from the Heart Punch Pack, I punched out a Real Red foil heart from one of the designs in the From the Heart Specialty DSP pack, and adhered it with Liquid Glue.

I wrapped a piece of Real Red 3/8″ Double-Stitched Satin Ribbon around the card front – securing it in the back with Glue Dots.

I adhered the sentiment with Liquid Glue, and then added Rhinestone Basic Jewels – one on the sentiment strip and several around the stamped hearts.

A good-sized bow from the Real Red 3/8″ Double-Stitched Satin Ribbon, adhered with a Glue Dot, finished off the card front.

On the inside, I added a sentiment from the Heartfelt stamp set in Basic Gray on a Whisper White panel.  Then I stamped Heartfelt and Heart to Heart images in Real Red, Basic Gray and Smoky Slate.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Real Red 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 hearts on the front…

…and some more Basic Gray Neutrals 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  These two stamp sets – Heartfelt and Heart to Heart – really work in concert to let us make Valentine’s Day cards for friend and lover alike, don’t they?  And I LOVE when punches – like the Heart Punch Pack (bundled with Heartfelt) – will cut images from Designer Series Paper like the From the Heart Specialty DSP.  SOOO stinkin’ handy!!  I hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix


I’ve mentioned a time or two that Katy gets me up early to be fed.

Most mornings, Finn gets up with me.  Out of solidarity.

Also FOMO! 😉

But – like me, the early mornings tend to make him sleepy (“er” than usual) in the afternoons.

Sometimes I’ll take a short power nap in the recliner.

Finn – out of solidarity – usually does the same!

Frequently on the sofa – where he can keep an eye on me.


Just in case.

Stampin’ Up! Sending You Thoughts and Flowers

Hey y’all!  It’s Friday and the very last day of January!  Which means…there’s only FOUR MORE DAYS until you can get your hands on the Coordination Product Release goodies!  If you’ve been off-planet for a minute and don’t know what I’m talking about…..scroll down!  All the deets are down below!

I used one of the new die sets – called the Sending Flowers Dies – and the coordinating Sending You Thoughts stamp set (a Level 1 Sale-A-Bration reward) to make today’s card.  Take a look-see:

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

I pulled out a pretty Pool Party paper from the Tropical Oasis DSP (LOVE the versatility of this paper pack!!) and matted it on So Saffron for the card front.

From a square of Whisper White, I cut the big circle die in the Sending Flowers Die set.

Using my Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends Combo Pack, I colored the stems and leaves of the die cut.  Then I used Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals – and smaller pieces, too – to pop the die cut onto the card front.

The die set has two small flower dies – each die cuts four flower shapes.  I used both dies to cut flowers from So Saffron, Mango Melody and Grapefruit Grove card stock.

Then I used Liquid Glue to adhere the flowers to their matching shapes on the die cut and added Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the middles.

For the sentiment, I stamped the Sending You Thoughts sentiment in Granny Apple Green on Whisper White and cut it with the label die in the Sending Flowers set.  I also cut a second label in So Saffron.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the two labels together with a little offset.  Then I wrapped some So Saffron Baker’s Twine (from the Metallic Baker’s Twine & Sequins Pack (another of the $50 Level 1 Sale-A-Bration choices) around the end of the label, tying it in a bow at the end.

I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the sentiment to the card front.  Then I added another couple of die cut flowers and a Rhinestone Basic Jewel at the end.

On the inside, I added a second sentiment from Sending You Thoughts in Granny Apple Green to a Whisper White panel.  I adhered another couple of Sending Flowers die cuts next to it.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a So Saffron mat and then into my Granny Apple Green card base and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more flower die cuts and Rhinestones on the front (I know this card will be inside a package – heck, the sentiment practically DECLARES that it will!) so I wasn’t concerned with mailing it on its own…

…and I added a little more of the Tropical Oasis DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  So…I’ve already told you how much I love this Sending You Thoughts stamp set.  The sentiments are awesome and the fact that it’s free during Sale-A-Bration is icing on the cake!!  And now – add in the gorgeous floral die cuts in the Sending Flowers Die set (which you’ll be able to pick up starting on 4 Feb!).  Wow!  I hope you like – and have added this die set to your Must Have list!

If you’d like to recreate this card – all the Stampin’ Up! products you need are listed down below as well as the card cuts!

Finn Fan Fix


You guys remember Glamour Shots?  Like…from the 80’s?

You know – where you go in to the photo studio in sweats and a raggedy t-shirt and 3 hours later you come out with photos that look like you spent three hours getting all dolled up?

Are those even still a thing?

IF they are – then Finn STILL would not go.

No need.

He rolls out of bed in the morning with his Farrah Fawcett hair looking like he spent an hour or three in the makeup chair.

I give you…Glamourous Finn!

See what I mean?

One handsome and glamourous dude!!

Stampin’ Up! By the Dockside 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!

Yesterday I brought you guys a Mother’s Day card – so it seemed fair to bring a Father’s Day card today!  And I’d been hankering to use the new By the Dock and bundled Dockside Dies, so it seemed like the perfect opportunity!  Take a look-see:

Seriously – the jumping frog?!?

As I mentioned, this was Sketch week – and here’s what we were working with!

And, I’m playing along with the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.

 

I started with some Clubhouse DSP that I matted on Crumb Cake for the card front.

Using some SNAIL, I adhered a short-ish piece of 5/8″ Burlap Ribbon onto the card front.

On a piece of Crumb Cake card stock, I stamped a sentiment from the By the Dock set in Soft Suede ink.  Then I cut it out with the largest label die in the Stitched So Sweetly Die set.  That’s popped onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Then I started stamping and cutting the little pieces and parts to finish off the design.

On scrap Crumb Cake, I stamped the oars from the stamp set twice in Soft Suede ink and cut them with their matching dies in the Dockside Dies.  I cut “grass” in Granny Apple Green (two of these), Garden Green and Old Olive vellum from the Perennial Essence 12″ x 12″ Vellum Pack.  I also cut a few extra “cattail” tops from a little bit more Crumb Cake – just the tops.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere those to the cattails on the grasses – I colored one of them with my Soft Suede Stampin’ Write Marker.

I built the collage from the grass up using Liquid Glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals for the cardstock die cuts – and Glue Dots for the vellum grass.

The little frog is a die cut from the Dockside Dies – and is adhered with Liquid Glue.  And he’s about as cute as can be, isn’t he?!?

You can see I tucked the two oars in and amongst the grass – using Liquid Glue to secure them.

I added a few Night of Navy gems from the Holiday Rhinestone Jewels and the card front was done.

On the inside, I added a second sentiment in Soft Suede to a Whisper White panel.  Underneath, I stamped the shoreline image in Crumb Cake.  Then I used a Blender Pen to pull some of the Crumb Cake ink down – and to add Old Olive here and there.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Crumb Cake mat and into my Night of Navy card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got the shoreline image again – and a super-cute Old Olive frog – on the front….

…and more of the plaid Clubhouse DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  So – we’ve got a boat and my husband fishes.  Which makes this By the Dock and matching Dockside Dies a really fun bundle for me.  But…I have to say – the leaping frog is what did it for me!  I mean – seriously cute.  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips Jubilee Mother’s Day Card

Happy happy HAAWWWMP DAY!!  Whoo-hooo!!

I’ve got a really pretty card for you today (she says with blushing modesty…..) that is just perfect for Mother’s Day!  It uses two great bundles in the 2020 Jan – Jun Mini Catalog…the Timeless Tulips and Birthday Jubilee bundles.  They go together perfectly!  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from this week’s CAS Colours & Sketches challenge.

And the soft color scheme is from the Sunday Stamps color challenge.

I started with a piece of Very Vanilla that I embossed in the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder and matted on Petal Pink for the card front.

Then I cut two of the detailed die cut panels in the Jubilee Beauty Die Set from Very Vanilla and I adhered them to the card front with Liquid Glue. (It’s the middle die on the magnet in the picture below!)  I adhered the panels closer to the bottom of the card front so that there was about an inch “gap” at the top of the card front.

I used Glue Dots to wrap and secure a piece of Petal Pink 1/4″ Metallic-Edge Ribbon around the panel – over the “seam” between the two panels.

For the bouquet, I stamped the large tulip in the Timeless Tulips stamp set on Very Vanilla – twice in Petal Pink, once in Terracotta Tile, once in stamped-off-once Terracotta Tile and once in stamped-off-once Cherry Cobbler.  So….five flowers.  I punched them all out with the Tulip Builder Punch (bundled with the stamp set for a 10% savings!).

I also stamped five stems in Pool Party on Very Vanilla and fussy cut them.

I laid out the flowers and stems and then got busy sticking them down!  The bottom three flowers are adhered with Liquid Glue and then I popped the final two on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the stems in place.  You can see that I left the bottom parts of the stems sort of sticking up….

The sentiment, from the Timeless Tulips set, is stamped in Terracotta Tile on Very Vanilla.  I cut it with a Rectangle Stitched Die – modifying it to make it a little smaller.  I showed y’all how to do that on my video a couple of days ago….here!

I tied a big-ish loose bow with the Petal Pink 1/4″ Metallic-Edged Ribbon and adhered it with a Glue Dot.

Then I popped my sentiment over the top of the bow with double-stack Dimensionals.  Finally, a few Champagne Rhinestone Jewels finished off the card front.

On the inside, I added a perfect sentiment from the Birthday Jubilee stamp set in Terracotta Tile on a Very Vanilla panel.  I added a few tulips in Terracotta Tile and Petal Pink, with Pool Party stems and leaves.  Then I added a few more of the Champagne Rhinestone Jewels.  Cuz I love them so much! 🙂

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Petal Pink mat and into my Terracotta Tile card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got more tulips on the front…

…and a single Petal Pink tulip on the back of the envelope!

Et Voila!  I love this color palette – especially in Timeless Tulips!

The Jubilee Beauty Dies create gorgeous texture on your projects – especially pretty in tone-on-tone Vanilla!  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Music From The Heart Thanks

‘Sup, y’all!?  Hope your week is going well!

So – we’re almost one-third of the way thru Sale-A-Bration.  Wow.  Hard to believe!  Be sure to check out all the great shopping – hosting – and JOINING benefits that happen in Sale-A-Bration, okay?  All the deets you need are down below or over on my Stampin’ Up! Promotions page.  I’d love to have you on my Critters-N-Creatin’ Krew team – give me a holler if you have any questions!  🙂

My card today is a simple little number – barely any fussy cutting at all! – using the sweet Music From The Heart stamp set.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from this week’s CAS(E) This Sketch challenge – you can see I turned it on its head! 🙂

And the color palette is from the Inspire.Create  Challenge.

I started with a piece of Whisper White for the card front, matted on Flirty Flamingo.

From another piece of Whisper White, I cut the largest label die in the new Stitched So Sweetly Die set.

On that label, in Pretty Peacock, I stamped the sentiment from the Music From The Heart stamp set.  Next to it – allowing it to spill off the left side of the label, I added the piano image in Early Espresso.  With my Blender Pen – I lightly pulled some ink out into the image to shade and color it a little.

I stamped the piano again on a piece of scrap Whisper White and colored the heart with my Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blends Combo Pack.  Then I fussy cut the heart.

I laid the die cut sentiment label onto the card front where I wanted it and used the music notes in the stamp set to add my “music”.  I used Pretty Peacock for the heart note (with the first one overlapping the edge of the die cut) and Flirty Flamingo for the others.  Some of the eighth notes are in stamped-off-once Flirty Flamingo.  I added some little Flirty Flamingo hearts, too.

I popped the label onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Then I used a Mini Stampin’ Dimensional at the top of the fussy cut heart – and a little Liquid Glue at the bottom – and popped the heart in place.  And – that was it for the card front!

On the inside, I added a second Music From The Heart sentiment in Pretty Peacock to a Whisper White panel.  Across the bottom I added the music staff image in Flirty Flamingo, then added the treble clef in Early Espresso and a few Pretty Peacock notes.

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got some Pretty Peacock and Flirty Flamingo musical notes on the front…

…and the full musical “score” on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I love the gentle punniness of the sentiments in the Music From The Heart stamp set – and the notes and staff and and and….well.  I love it all!  I hope you like!

If you’d like to recreate this card – all the Stampin’ Up! products you need are listed down below as well as the card cuts!

Stampin’ Up! Lily Pad Impressions and Tulips Sympathy Card

Well – it’s here again!  Monday!  Yeah?

Do you realize January is almost over?!?  Yikes!

My card today celebrates Sale-A-Bration (which is only around thru the end of March, remember).  I used the Lovely Lily stamp set ($50 level reward) and the Lily Pad Dies ($100 level reward), plus the simply gorgeous Lily Impressions DSP ($50 level reward).  And…I borrowed a couple of sentiments from Itty Bitty Greetings (2019-2020 AC) and Timeless Tulips (2020 Jan – Jun Mini Catalog).  Take a look-see:

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

And I thought the TGIF inspiration challenge was fun this week, too! 🙂

I started by embossing a piece of Pretty Peacock cardstock – it’s the same size as the front of the card – in the new Stone 3D Embossing Folder (get this one bundled with the Power of Hope stamp set with a $100 order during Sale-A-Bration).  Then I adhered it with Liquid Glue to the front of my Pretty Peacock card base.

To make the angled panel, I first laid a piece of the Lily Impressions DSP across the card base.  Then I flipped it over and traced the back of the DSP so I’d know where to cut.

With the pencil line clearly visible, I cut the panel in my Paper Trimmer.

Then I adhered the panel to a piece of Flirty Flamingo card stock – lining up the two straight sides to create my “normal” mat edge.

I used my Paper Trimmer to cut off the excess card stock – eyeballing the mat size.

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

For the flowers, I used Melon Mambo ink to stamp the large flower in the Lovely Lily stamp set on a piece of Whisper White card stock and one on a piece of Flirty Flamingo.  I “pulled” the ink out into the petals of both flowers using a Blender Pen.  Then I cut them both out with the die in the Lily Pad Dies set.

I also used the detailed flower die to cut a Melon Mambo flower.

The sentiment, from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set, is stamped in Melon Mambo on Flirty Flamingo and cut with the lily pad die.

I layered the flowers and the sentiment using Liquid Glue.  The sentiment is tucked into the flowers – hiding the little “dent” that makes it a lily pad.  So…it’s just an oval!

I wound a piece of So Saffron twine from the Metallics Baker’s Twine and Sequins combo pack ($50 level reward) around my fingers five times, then tied another piece around it to create a “bow”.  Which I adhered to the card front with a Glue Dot.

Then I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the flowers/sentiment over the top of the bow.

I added some Melon Mambo gems from the Noble Peacock Rhinestones and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a sentiment from Timeless Tulips in Melon Mambo to a Whisper White panel.  In the bottom corner, I stamped the big flower and used my Blender Pen to pull ink into the petals.  Then I added a few Old Olive gems from Noble Peacock.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Flirty Flamingo mat and into the Pretty Peacock card base and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another Lovely Lily flower in Melon Mambo on the front…

…and a little more of the gorgeous Lily Impressions DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  The Lovely Lily stamp set and coordinating Lily Pad Dies are the perfect complement to the gorgeous Lily Impressions DSP.

That paper is SO pretty – you can SEE the brush strokes in the oil “paint”!  Stunning!  I hope you like!

If you want to recreate this card – all the Stampin’ Up! products you need are listed down below.  With a $200 order – you could get the Lovely Lily stamp set, the Lily Pad Dies and the Lily Impressions DSP for free!
