Stampin’ Up Snailed It Happy Mail

Happy President’s Day, y’all!  Hope you’ve got the day off and have something enjoyable planned!  Like – maybe you’ll decide to make a card to send to a friend.  Well – tomorrow.  No mail today! 🙂

You might want to send a little happy mail and the card I’ve got for you today would be a great one to make!  It uses the sweet Snailed It bundle with the Snail Dies and the Snail Mail DSP!  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one was inspired by the Freshly Made Sketches challenge this week.

And the envelopes elements are from this week’s CASology Cue Card.

I started with a Real Red panel that I embossed in the Dainty Diamonds 3D Embossing Folder and then adhered to the front of my Real Red card base with Liquid Glue.

Next, I matted to pieces of Snail Mail DSP to Bermuda Bay panels and adhered them at jaunty angles with Liquid Glue.

Using the envelope die in the Snail Dies set, I cut two Basic White and one Bermuda Bay pieces.   I folded up the white envelopes, “sealing” them with a Glue Dot.  With the Bermuda Bay piece, I left the top flap up.

On a piece of Basic White, I stamped the Snailed It sentiment in Bermuda Bay and cut it with the little stitched rectangle in the Snail Dies.

I slid the little “note” into the Bermuda Bay envelope and stuck it in place with a little Liquid Glue.  Then I adhered the two white envelopes to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I used the little heart dies in the Snail Dies to cut Real Red hearts – and adhered one to each of the envelopes with Liquid Glue.

I used some Stampin’ Dimensionals to stick the Bermuda Bay envelope over top of the white ones.

I added a few red Resin Hearts to the card front and it was done

On the inside, I added a word bubble from Snailed It in Bermuda Bay to a Basic White panel.  I adhered a Real Red die cut heart to the inside.

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

My Basic White Medium Envelope got another image from Snailed It on the front.  I used my Stamparatus and inked the image with my Bermuda Bay and Real Red Stampin’ Write Markers.

…and a little more of the Snail Mail DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I love the Snailed It stamp set and the fun little envelope die in the bundled Snail Dies is way too cute!!  It all comes together with the Snail Mail DSP to create all manner of adorable cards!

I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Hey Birthday Chick in a Window!

Happy Happy Hawwwmp Day, y’all!  Hope the week is going well for you – and that you’re getting dug out of the snow if you were in the path of the Snowmaggedon!

I’ve got a cute card for you today using the brand new Hey Birthday Chick stamp set and the bundled Birthday Chick Dies!  Take a look-see:

The color scheme for this one is from this week’s MFT Color Challenge.

And I’d say this little chick definitely qualifies for the Inspire.Create Theme challenge.

I started with a piece of Gray Granite plaid paper from the Neutrals 6″ x 6″ DSP (this is one of the NEW patterns that you’ll get when you join Stampin’ Up! during Sale-A-Bration – yes, it’s one of the 200 FREE sheets of DSP!!).  I matted it on Basic Black for the card front.

I used the fun fence die in the new Birthday Chick Die set to cut two Basic White fence pieces – that I adhered to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I cut a darker piece of Rococo Rose paper from the Oh So Ombre 6″ x 6″ DSP (FREE with a $50 purchase during Sale-A-Bration) using the next-to-largest Stitched So Sweetly rectangle die.  I cut the same size from a piece of Basic Black.

Using the next-to-largest oval Stitched Shapes Dies, I cut a “window” from the black die cut and popped it onto the DSP die cut with Mini Black Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sweet Hey Birthday Chick image in Tuxedo Black on Basic White.  Then I stamped just the balloon on the lightest part of the Rococo Rose Oh So Ombre DSP (the pattered side).  Using the die in Birthday Chick, I cut the image from the Whisper White panel.  Then I fussy cut the Oh So Ombre balloon.

Using my Gray Granite Stampin’ Blends, I colored the chicken – and used my Petal Pink Blend for her head.  I cheated the color challenge a smidge to color the beak and feet with my Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Write Marker.

I adhered the die cut to the Rococo Rose panel – tucking it under the raised panel.  I left the balloon “out” – using a Mini Black Stampin’ Dimensional to adhere it to the outside of the frame.  I used Liquid Glue to adhere the fussy cut balloon in place. Finally, I cut a tiny little bow tie with the Birthday Chick die from a piece of the lightest Rococo Rose Oh So Ombre DSP and adhered it with Liquid Glue.

Using the fun sentiment die in the Birthday Chick die set, I cut the sentiment in Basic Black and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I added some Champagne Rhinestone Jewels here and there and the card front was done!

On the inside, I inked a second chicken from Hey Birthday Chick in Gray Granite, stamped it off once and stamped the middle of a Basic White panel.  Then I added a sentiment from Hey Birthday Chick in Rococo Rose in the middle.  Using stamped-off-once Rococo Rose, I added confetti.

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

My Basic White Medium Envelope got the chicken in full-strength Gray Granite and confetti in stamped-off-once Rococo Rose on the front…

…and more of the Rococo Rose Oh So Ombre DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  These little crazy chickens in the Hey Birthday Chick stamp set are so stinkin’ cute – and the fact that they ALSO have matching dies in the Birthday Chick set is just the icing on the cake!  And…little fences!  And that die cut sentiment is just wonderful!

I hope you like – and will add this one to your…barn! 😉

Stampin’ Up! Snailed It Pop Up Fun Fold with Video Tutorial

Good morning and happy Friday!  Hoping that your week went well – and that you’re ready for a weekend.

I’ve got a fun fun-fold for you today and, if you were able to join me for my YouTube live yesterday, I appreciate you spending part of your day with me!  If not, here’s the replay!

Note – my internet did me wrong yesterday (thank you, XFinity) and this ended up being a two-parter.  So – when you hit the end of Part 1 – here’s the link to Part 2! 🙂

I am loving the Snailed It Suite – with the bundled Snail Dies and fun Snail Mail DSP – WAAAAY more than I thought I would when I first saw it in the catalog – it’s just so stinkin’ cute!  And I love a good fun-fold, so…I saw Lisa Curcio’s pop-up card and used her mechanism to create my own using this fun suite.  Take a look-see:

The layout for the front of this card was inspired by this week’s Sunday Stamps challenge.

I started by adhering a piece of Snail Mail DSP to a Bermuda Bay mat for the card front.  Then I used the largest rectangle in the Stitched So Sweetly dies to cut a second design, which I adhered to the card front with Liquid Glue.

On a piece of Basic White, using my Stamparatus, I stamped the cool mushroom (or…are they toadstools?!?) image from Snailed It in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  Then I cut it with the die from the bundled Snail Die set.

I colored the image with my Light Bermuda Bay and Real Red Stampin’ Write Markers, and both of the Daffodil Delight Markers.  Then I popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

For the sentiment, I stamped the word bubble image from Snailed It in Real Red on Basic White – then added the sentiment in Bermuda Bay.  I cut it with the matching die in the Snail Dies and popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside, I used Tear-and-Tape Adhesive to create the 3/4″ x 3/4″ box mechanism that makes the Pop-up part of the pop-up card work!  It started with a 3 1/2″ x 4 1/4″ piece of Real Red, scored at 3/4″, 1 1/2″, 2 1/4″ and 3″ along the shorter side.  Then it’s adhered into the box with the Tear-and-Tape.

I also used Tear-and-Tape to secure it inside the card (this is all in Part 1 of the video!).  Then I used Liquid Glue to adhere a strip of the Snail Mail DSP to the front of the box.

I adhered a Bermuda Bay-matted piece of Snail Mail DSP to the top of the card inside, then added a fussy cut snail from the DSP.

I used a die in the Snail Dies to cut the little pink snail – and fussy cut some shrooms – then adhered them all to the front of the box-mechanism.  I created – if you will – a snail-o-rama…. 😉

I repeated the mushroom image from the front of the card on a Basic White panel, matted it on Bermuda Bay and then into the card.  The card front is also adhered with Liquid Glue.  Some white and red Resin Hearts finished it all off!

My Basic White Medium Envelope got the Snailed It mushrooms on the front…

…and more of the Snail Mail DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  It’s pretty hard to NOT be loving this Snailed It bundle – with the Snail Dies letting you cut the images straight from the Snail Mail DSP!!  And they’re all just so danged cute!

And – on a fun-fold?!  Yes, please!  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Dandy Dragonfly Garden Fun Fold With Video Tutorial

Good morning and happy Friday!  Hoping that your week went well – and that you’re ready for a weekend.  You’ll be fascinated to hear that – in celebration of National Pizza WEEK (yes, that’s a thing – but it ends Saturday so….get to eating!) – we ate sourdough crust pizza last night! And it were yummy!

I’ve got a fun fun-fold for you today and, if you were able to join me for my YouTube live yesterday, I appreciate you spending part of your day with me!  If not, here’s the replay!

I pulled out the Dragonfly Garden Bundle – with the fun Dragonflies Punch – and some Dandy Garden DSP and pulled it all together to create a z-fold card (of sorts).  Take a look-see:

The color palette for this one is from this week’s Paper Players Challenge!

I started with a 5 1/4″ x 11″ piece of cardstock – Blackberry Bliss for the sample card (I used Calypso Coral in the video) – and scored and folded it at 1 3/4″, 5 1/2″ and 9 3/4″ along the long side.

I matted Dandy Garden DSP on Bumble Bee cardstock – using Misty Moonlight paper for two panels and Bumble Bee paper for the center panel.

I adhered all the matted panels to the card base with Liquid Glue.

For the belly band, I gently folded a 1″ x 11″ piece of Blackberry Bliss cardstock (or Calypso Coral) around the folded-up card and adhered the ends together with Liquid Glue on the front of the card.

The sentiment started with a piece of Basic White cardstock that I cut with the third smallest Stitched Rectangle Die.  I ran it again thru the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine, this time with one of the new Stitched With Whimsy dies in the middle.

I stamped the middle of the sentiment label with the Dragonfly Garden sentiment in Misty Moonlight (Mossy Meadow in the video) and then stamped the wunnermus wildflower image three times over the top in Bumble Bee.  Then I adhered it to the middle of the belly band with Liquid Glue.

I punched a dragonfly from the Dandy Garden DSP (Blackberry Bliss or Calypso Coral) using the Dragonflies Punch.  I gently curled the wings and adhered it with Liquid Glue.  Then I used the punch to punch Blackberry Bliss (or Calypso Coral) small dragonflies and adhered them as well.  Those got a swipe with my Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush.

For the inside, I stamped the Dragonfly Garden wildflowers image twice in Bumble Bee on the bottom of a Basic White panel.  Then I added the little “swarm” image in Blackberry Bliss (Calypso Coral in the video).

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Bumble Bee mat and into the card base and the card was done!

My Basic White Medium Envelope got the Dragonfly Garden wildflowers and “swarm” on the front…

…and more Dandy Garden DSP on the envelope flap!

Et Voila!  Love love love the Dandy Garden Suite, don’t you?  From the Dragonfly Garden stamp set with it’s perfectly fun Dragonflies Punch

…to the gorgeous Dandy Garden DSP

….it’s a winner!  I hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix 

In the evenings, when the horses come in, we tell Finn to “go to your spot”.

His spot is a dog bed.  Wherever the dog bed is – so…it moves around some.

But – it’s still his spot and he goes there to watch over the pony parade as they come in!

He’ll usually lay down – with blinky blinking around his neck! – for at least the start of the event.

But…as they get closer – sometimes he has to sit up – just to be sure they see him.

Just double checking that I’m there and won’t let one of the mean girls get him! 😉

To be clear – they aren’t ACTUALLY mean and I won’t let them get him!
