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! Lots of Heart True Love Card

Well – it’s February, y’all!  Half way thru Sale-A-Bration.  And tomorrow is the first day y’all can order the new Hey Chick and Hey Birthday Chick Bundles.  I know you’ve been waiting for those!  So…scroll on down to get the deets and then be ready for tomorrow to roll around!

For today, though, I’ve got a simple card for you using the Lots of Heart Bundle with the Many Hearts Dies!  And some True Love DSP!  And no – it is NOT a Valentine’s OR Love-you-forever card.  Take a look-see:

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

And I pulled the color scheme from the Color Throwdown challenge.

I started with a piece of polka-dot paper from the all-black-and-white True Love DSP and, using my awesome new Blending Brushes, I colored that panel with Gray Granite ink.  Then I used a Stitched Rectangle Die and cut the middle out of the panel.

I adhered the large panel to a Purple Posy mat with Liquid Glue.  And then I matted the die cut middle on Purple Posy and popped it back into its spot with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a piece of Basic White, I stamped the plaid heart from Lots of Heart twice in Misty Moonlight.  I used two dies in the Many Hearts Die set – a small heart die and the little die that cuts a perforated heart shape…that one fits inside the larger heart die – to cut two small, perforated hearts from the plaid images.

 

On a piece of Purple Posy cardstock, I stamped the Lots of Heart sentiment in Misty Moonlight and cut it with a small, narrow Stitched Rectangle die.  Then I popped it onto the middle of the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Using Liquid Glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals, I added the two hearts to the card front.

A couple three Purple Posy Playing With Patterns Resin Dots finished it off!

On the inside, I added a few Many Hearts hearts in Misty Moonlight to a Basic White panel.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Purple Posy mat and into my Misty Moonlight card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals, and the card was done!

My Basic White Medium Envelope got more of the Many Hearts hearts on the front in Misty Moonlight…

…and more of the Gray Granite-brushed True Love DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I love the color-changing versatility of the black-and-white True Love DSP, don’t you?

And the Lots of Heart bundle is just as versatile – it’s NOT as much a lovey dovey set as it is for friendship!!

I hope you like!! 🙂

If you’d like to recreate this card, all the products and card cuts are listed below!

Stampin’ Up! Sweet Strawberry Blessings Fun Fold With Video Tutorial

Happy last day of January, y’all!  And – this is the half-way point for Sale-A-Bration – which means there’s only a month left to join the team and get those extra 200 sheets of Designer Series Paper free! Ask me how to take advantage of this great freebie – AND set yourself up for 20-25% off EVERYTHING you order!  Oh – and you’ll be part of my Critters-N-Creatin’ Krew family, too – which…is pretty awesome!  Even if I DO say so myself.

Which…I totally do! 🙂

So – I’ve got a fun-fold for you today – that will make you think of summer – and I showed how to make it last night on my Facebook live video.  If you were able to spend some of your weekend with me, I appreciate it!  If not, here’s the replay on YouTube!

I pulled out one of my favorite papers – that also just so happens to be a freebie during Sale-A-Bration – the Berry Delightful DSP (that I cut using the Curvy Dies!).  Then I added some flowers and leaves cut with the Strawberry Builder Punch.  And some images and sentiments from the Sweet Strawberry stamp set.  All on a cool fun fold.  Take a look-see:

The layout for the front of the card is inspired by the CAS Colours & Sketches challenge.

And the TGIF challenge was right up my alley!

I started with a piece of Shaded Spruce card stock, cut to 4 1/4″ x 11″ that I scored along the long side at 2 1/4″, 3 5/8″, 7 3/8″ and 8 3/4″.  Then I folded at each score line: 2 1/4″ (valley); 3 5/8″ (mountain); 7 3/8″ (mountain); 8 3/4″ (valley).

I matted two pieces of leafy-green Berry Delightful DSP on Flirty Flamingo and adhered them to the outer panels of the front of the card.

For the front panel, I layered two pieces of the Berry Delightful DSP together and ran them thru the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine with the dotted-curve die from the Curvy Dies in place near the middle.  That gave me four pieces – with two needed for a card front.  If you’re doing the math – that means you can go right ahead and make TWO of these cards lickety split! 🙂

I adhered two of the cut pieces to another piece of Flirty Flamingo and then to the front of the card with Liquid Glue.

The sentiment, from Sweet Strawberry, is stamped in Shaded Spruce on a strip of Basic White.  Then I snipped a banner in one end and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

On another piece of Basic White, I stamped five small flowers from Sweet Strawberry in Flirty Flamingo.  Using the fill-image, I stamped five with full strength Flirty Flamingo and two with stamped-off-once Flirty Flamingo.

Then I stamped three leaves in Shaded Spruce – filling them with Granny Apple Green.  I punched everything out with the Strawberry Builder Punch and curled the flowers lightly with my fingers.

I adhered the leaves with Liquid Glue, then added two flowers.  With a Glue Dot, I adhered a small bow tied with two lengths of White Baker’s Twine from the Snail Mail Twine Combo Pack.  Then I added the third flower with Liquid Glue – and a fourth on top of the bow with a Glue Dot.  The fifth flower is adhered with Liquid Glue at the end of the sentiment strip.

I colored some Rhinestone Basic Jewels with my Dark Mango Melody Stampin’ Blend and added one to each of the flowers – and the card front was done!

For the back, I matted two pieces of plaid Berry Delightful DSP on Flirty Flamingo and adhered them to the side panels.  I added a second Sweet Strawberry sentiment and some flowers and leaves to a Basic White Panel.

The flowers and leaves are in the same colors as the ones on the front.  I colored a medium sized Rhinestone with the Mango Melody blend and adhered it to the larger flower.

 

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Flirty Flamingo mat and onto the back panel and the card was done.

My Basic White Medium Envelope got more Sweet Strawberry flowers and leaves on the front…

…and a little more leafy Berry Delightful DSP on the envelope flap!

Et Voila!  Y’all – there’s no way for me to explain how gorgeous the Berry Delightful DSP is – if you don’t have it – GET IT RIGHT NOW!  Yes – it’s THAT pretty that I have to YELL it!  And – the fact that you can get it for FREE is no small thing. It comes bundled with its own stamp set – called Berry Blessings – and is FREE with a qualifying $100 order during Sale-A-Bration!

Although not bundled together – both the stamp set and the paper (duh!) work perfectly with the Sweet Strawberry Bundle in the Jan – Jun 2021 Mini Catalog!

Et Voila!  I hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix 

The other day – before the current cold-cycle, it was ALL the way in the high 50’s.

Which is WAY too hot for fur-bucket ponies in full winter regalia!

I thought I got a glimpse of Cady coming up from the back pasture – and she looked suspiciously….drippy.

When they came in that evening….

…It became pretty apparent that she’d been ponding. 😉

Like…all the way in.  Based on the look of her – probably rolling in the pond.

It’s just what she does (I’ve seen her in the pond when it was 35!). 🙂

Stampin’ Up! CAS Berry Delightful Blessings

Mornin’, y’all!  How goes your week?  We’re enjoying a little warm-snap – which is lovely.  Wayne’s been working up a storm and has 11 of our 12 new barn roll-up doors on – which will be AWESOME – cuz…supposed to be back down into the high 20’s on Thursday! 😉

I have a clean-and-simple card for you today.

I know – I know.  Not at all what you expect from me, right?  Well – hang on, cuz…I think you’ll like it as much as I do.  It perfectly showcases the gorgeous Berry Blessings Bundle – which you can get for FREE during Sale-a-Bration with a $100 order (not including shipping & tax).  Take a look-see:

See?  Summer-on-a-card! 🙂

The layout is an interesting one from the MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge.

This is a PERFECT little card to use up scraps that you’ve got sitting around.  And your Stamparatus if you wanted to make multiples! 🙂

I started by cutting a piece of the Berry Delightful DSP into three 1/2″ wide strips.  Then I matted each of them on 5/8″ wide Granny Apple Green.  These started out at about 4″ – and then got trimmed down.

I pulled out a Basic White panel and arranged my three matted-strips in place – keeping them in order so the pattern would match up.  Then, using them as reference, I stamped the Berry Blessings sentiment in Poppy Parade.

I adhered the matted strips in place with Liquid Glue.  Then, using my Paper Trimmer – I cut the excess off the right side of the panel.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Granny Apple Green mat.

And….uhm….the card front was done! 😉

On the inside, I used Granny Apple Green to stamp the outline leaves images from Berry Blessings, then filled them with Granny Apple Green.  I also stamped a couple of stems.  Then I added Poppy Parade berry outlines and fills.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Granny Apple Green mat and into my Poppy Parade card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Basic White Medium Envelope got more Berry Blessings berries and leaves on the front…

…and more of the wunnermus Berry Delightful DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  There is truly NOTHING to not-love about this amazing Berry Blessings Bundle, right?  It’s really stunning – with the Berry Delightful DSP bringing summer cheer to all your projects!!

I hope you like and are figuring how to add this bundle to your stash (if you haven’t already!).

If you’d like to recreate this card, all the products and card cuts are listed below!

Finn Fan Fix 

Finn doesn’t always get on the sofa.

Well – not when I’m on it.  He’s almost always on it in the morning. 😉

But, the other night, he hopped up and – apparently – had something he wanted to discuss.

But – it turned out all he really wanted to do was “help” me work on my blog! 🙂

Looks like he approves of my card!

Stampin’ Up! A Wrapped Flowers Bouquet with Video Tutorial

Happy half-way-thru-the-weekend day, y’all!  Hope it’s been a good one for you!  Yesterday, I got half of my gardens “turned” and ready for amending with some compost to give them a little boost before spring planting time comes.  And I’ve got my seed starting stuff ready to seed start.  So – soon I’ll have my grow light working on my kitchen island and we’ll see what sprouts! I love this time of year!! 🙂

I’ve got a spring-y card for you today and I showed how to make it last night on my Facebook live video.  If you were able to spend some of your weekend with me, I appreciate it!  If not, here’s the replay on YouTube!

The new Wrapped Flowers bundle – which includes the Wrapped Flowers die set (that makes the fun “newspaper wrapper”! – is for sure one of the more beautiful sets in the new Jan – Jun 2021 Mini Catalog.  I used it to make a love-themed card for friends or family.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from the current Mojo Monday sketch challenge.

And the color scheme is from CAS Colours & Sketches.

And the love-theme fits perfectly with the Global Design Project theme challenge.

I started with a piece of Basic White card stock that I embossed in the Scripty 3D Embossing Folder.  Then I cut the largest oval Stitched Shapes Die from the center.  I cut the largest scalloped oval from the Ovals Layering Dies from Old Olive card stock and matted the white oval on it with Liquid Glue.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to an Old Olive mat – then popped the matted oval back in place with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut a piece of Crushed Curry Regals 6″ x 6″ DSP with the next-to-smallest rectangle Stitched So Sweetly die, cut it in half – and slid the halves under the popped up oval, adhering them with Liquid Glue.

On a piece of Basic White, using my Stamparatus, I stamped the newsprint image from the Wrapped Bouquet Die Set twice in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  Then I cut it with the second-to-smallest rectangle in Stitched So Sweetly.  I used a Blending Brush to sponge the die cut with Smoky Slate ink.

I crinkled the die cut a bit to weather it – then adhered it with Liquid Glue.

On another piece of Basic White, I used my Stamparatus to stamp the smaller floral image from Wrapped Bouquet in Tuxedo Black and cut it with the die in Wrapped Flowers.  I colored the image with my Melon Mambo and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends and my Crushed Curry Stampin’ Write Marker.

For the wrapper – I stamped the newsprint image in Tuxedo Black on Basic White and cut it with the square die in Wrapped Flowers. Then I turned it over and stamped the back with the newsprint image.  I sponged both sides in Smoky Slate with my Blending Brush and then used the score lines (from the die) to fold it into a “wrapper”.

I used a couple of Glue Dots to hold the wrapper closed – and then to adhere the bouquet inside the wrapper.

On a piece of Basic White – I stamped the Wrapped Bouquet sentiment in Crushed Curry.  Then I cut it with the little tag die in Wrapped Flowers.  I also cut the same Crushed Curry Regals 6″ x 6″ DSP with the tag die.

I used my Dark Old Olive Stampin Blend to color a length of Linen Thread.  I adhered the thread on the back of the “wrapper” with a Glue Dot, threaded the two little tags onto it and tied a bow.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the wrapped bouquet to the card front and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped a second Wrapped Bouquet sentiment in Crushed Curry on Basic White.  I added the floral image in the corner in Smoky Slate and colored it as I’d done the image on the front of the card.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to an Old Olive mat and into my Crushed Curry card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Basic White Medium Envelope got the Wrapped Bouquet image on the front…

…and more of the Crushed Curry Regals 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap.

Et voila!  Okay – this is silly, but whenever I look at this Wrapped Bouquet flower with it’s sweet Wrapped Flowers “newspaper” wrapper, I think of Eliza Doolittle in My Fair Lady.  No?  Just me?  Well – whatever it makes YOU think of….I think you’re going to really have fun with this bundle!!

I hope you like!

Sometimes, when you’re trying to sleep on non-purpose-built furniture, you have to…improvise and overcome.

It often requires some judicial tucking and folding of paws – and the use of a handy exercise trampoline.

You know – for the overflow.

I mean – why not?  MOM pretty obviously isn’t going to use it! 😉

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!

If you’d like to recreate these cards, all the products and card cuts are listed below!

Stampin’ Up! Lots of Heart for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good morning, y’all!  It’s Thursday – which means it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!!  We’ve got a sketch challenge today 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 our sketch, I sort of immediately thought of the new Lots of Heart bundle (not even sort of thinking outside the box!). But – I didn’t want to do Valentine’s.  Nope – I wanted to do a little something different – so you could see how versatile this bundle could be!  So…I teamed it up with the Peaceful Moments stamp set.  Take a look-see:

And…here’s our sketch (as you can see – I stayed right smack “in the box”!

I decided that not-red and not-pink was the way to go, so….the Just Us Girls color challenge was the perfect inspiration!

I started with a piece of Seaside Spray cardstock that I stamped all over – in Seaside Spray ink for a tone-on-tone effect – with the polka-dot heart image from the Lots of Heart stamp set.  Then I embossed it in the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder for the card front.

I matted a piece of Hydrangea Hill DSP on Misty Moonlight and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue

I cut the Misty Moonlight scrolly-heart strip using the die in the bundled Many Hearts Die set and adhered it with Liquid Glue.

Using the large – lacey-edged heart die, I cut a Balmy Blue and a Basic White heart.  Then I snipped the lace-edge off the white heart and adhered it to the Balmy Blue heart.  Then I adhered it to the card front with more Liquid Glue.

Using my Stamparatus, I stamped the plaid heart from Lots of Heart in Misty Moonlight – then cut it with the coordinating die in Many Hearts.

I popped the plaid heart onto the other layers with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Using a couple of Glue Dots, I adhered a multi-loop figure-8 bow made with Misty Moonlight/Silver Baker’s Twine from the Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack.

I stamped a Peaceful Moments sentiment in Balmy Blue on Basic White and cut it with the next-to-smallest rectangle in my go-to Stitched So Sweetly die set.

I popped the sentiment over the bow with Stampin’ Dimensionals, added a few silver Metallic Pearls and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped a second Peaceful Moments sentiment in Balmy Blue on Basic White.  In the corner, I adhered a pretty Misty Moonlight die cut from the Many Hearts set with Liquid Glue.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Misty Moonlight mat and into my Seaside Spray card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Basic White Medium Envelope got a Lots of Heart image – stamped in Tuxedo Black – on the front. I colored it with my Light Balmy Blue and Light Misty Moonlight Stampin’ Blends, plus my Seaside Spray Stampin’ Write Marker…

…and I added more of the Hydrangea Hill DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila! I really love this Lots of Heart Bundle – with the amazing Many Hearts Die Set.  I’m not a Valentine’s person, really, but this bundle offers a ton of OTHER options. Either by itself – or paired with other sentiment sets!

I hope you like!

Stamps-N-Lingers Jan – Jun 2021 Mini Catalog Special Bundles END Today!!

Happy Happy Hawwwmp Day, y’all!  I’ve got good news and bad.  The good news is that we’re on the downhill slide to the weekend.  Yeah!

The bad news is that….All good things must come to an end – and…today (or – more specifically – when I wake up my computer tomorrow morning!) is the END of my Jan – Jun 2021 Mini Catalog Special Bundles!  For your bundling pleasure (and money saving!) – I’ve gathered up some goodies from the new Suites (and beyond!) in the 2021 January – June Mini Catalog that coordinate with each other and will get you well on the way to making great cards and projects!  When you order them, you’ll save around 10-15% off ordering everything yourself!  And every Special Bundle includes a FREE GIFT! 🙂

AND – since it’s Sale-A-Bration EVERY bundle will get a couple of Sale-A-Bration Rewards.  The more bundles you order – the more rewards you’ll earn.  Heck – choose a couple three and get the retail cost over $300 (not YOUR cost – the RETAIL cost!) and you’ll receive the very cool Punch Party stamp set FREE!  It coordinates with the Double Oval Punch (Jan-Jun 2021 Mini p. 65) and the Rectangular Postage Stamp Punch (Annual Catalog p. 168).  Wow!

So – take a gander at the bundles I’ve put together for you and then use the form at the end to get your order placed!

IMPORTANT ORDERING NOTE!!  At the bottom of the form is a spot for you to put your choices for your Sale-A-Bration freebies.  Please prioritize your favorites from first thru sixth choice (and select “Unspecified Choice” for the remainder, okay?)  I’ll order them when I place your order – and will get as many of them for you as I can! 

If you’ve got questions on how to fill out the form – give me a holler!

But – this is a LIMITED TIME OFFER – it ends on 20 Jan 2021!  So….don’t wait too long!

Finn Fan Fix 

When I was pulling hay last night, I looked up to see…

I asked him what he was doing.

No – he didn’t answer me.

Hello?  He’s a dog, y’all! 😉

So I did some figuring out.

That is a perfect perch for him to keep an eye on me – in the horse side of the barn – AND keep his eye out for his Dad.

Wayne had gone in the shop.  There’s a door on the end of the barn that he COULD go out.  And if he snuck out he MIGHT get the golf cart and go somewhere!

Pretty smart of Finn, really.

I mean – if that’s it.

Could have just been where he got tired and decided to sit down and wait.

😉

Stampin’ Up! Sweet Ice Cream Thank You With Sprinkles!

Happy Holiday Monday, y’all!  If you’re working today – I hope it’s in your pajamas!  If you did have to do yourself up – I hope it was only from the WAIST up – and that you’re rocking pajama bottoms! 🙂

I have a sweet thank you card for you today – that will make you long for summer!  Or…eating ice cream in the dead of winter.  Whatever works for you!  My theory is – as long as the heat’s working in the house – ice cream is on the table!  And this triple scoop cone – from the Sweet Ice Cream Bundle and Ice Cream Corner DSP – is sure to give you a hankering. 🙂 Take a look-see:

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

And I played along at the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge, too!

I started with some sprinkle-strewn paper from the Ice Cream Corner DSP that I matted on Cinnamon Cider for the card front.

Next up, I used the next-to-largest rectangle in the Stitched So Sweetly die set to cut some cone-designed paper from the Ice Cream Corner DSP – that I adhered to the card front with Liquid Glue.

The next layer is Basic White – cut with the largest of the rectangles in the Stitched So Sweetly set.  Man – I LOVE this die set! 😉

On the side, at a jaunty angle, I stamped the sentiment from Sweet Ice Cream in Cinnamon Cider.  Then I adhered the panel to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I used the Ice Cream Cone Builder Punch to make my ice cream cone – and more of the Ice Cream Corner DSP.  First, I punched the cone itself from the cone-design paper – and adhered it to the white panel with Liquid Glue.

I punched three scoops using the punch from a few different pieces of the DSP – see all those splotchy looking shapes? – they’re perfect for making ice cream!

I adhered the bottom scoop with Liquid Glue and the next two with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Before I added the top Purple Posy scoop (Lavender Honey ice cream – I’m pretty sure!) – I stamped the sprinkles image from Sweet Ice Cream in stamped-off-once Highland Heather ink.

I added a couple three Purple Posy dots from the Playing With Patterns Resin Dots – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped a second Sweet Ice Cream sentiment in Cinnamon Cider on a piece of Basic White.  In the corner – I stamped the cone – and the cone-detail! – in Cinnamon Cider.  Bermuda Bay is the scoop color this time – with Bermuda Bay sprinkles!

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

My Basic White Medium Envelope got another Bermuda Bay ice cream cone on the front…

…and more of the Ice Cream Corner DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Are you hungry for some ice cream??  Not gonna lie – I could eat a cone myself!  This Sweet Ice Cream Bundle – with the Ice Cream Cone Builder Punch – works so perfectly with the Ice Cream Corner DSP to create some yummy frozen treats!

I hope you like! 🙂

If you’d like to recreate these cards, all the products and card cuts are listed below!

Finn Fan Fix 

We ran out of Skinny Pop.

Which is hard cuz we buy it by the gross.

Literally.

Okay – maybe not LITERALLY.  BUT – if it goes on sale at Sam’s or Costco – and there’s a limit of….10….then…guess how many we walk out the door with?? 😉

So.  I saw Skinny Pop microwave version at the grocery store and figured it would be a suitable sub.

Sidebar: it’s not.

The other night, I had a bag and when I finished I set it on the sofa next to me.

The man oh-so-casually hopped up to settle in at the other end of the sofa.

This is a hard one, Mom.

Anyone want to speculate on what happened next? 😉
