Stampin’ Up! Feathers, Frost and All Things Thanks!

Good morning and Happy Happy Hawmp Day from Orlando!  Whoo-hoo!!

We had an uneventful trip down yesterday – even if it WAS raining – and got to our condo in good “pretty” time…tip: never get off the freeway.  PAY the toll on the Turnpike.  That’s all I’m saying about that…

Today is CenterStage – which is being held at Epcot!  I’ll head over around lunch time to be a kid-at-heart for a few hours, take in the Wine & Food Festival for a while (and try to walk off the calories – oh heck, who’m I kidding??!  I’m leaving the diet at the condo!!).  I’m excited!!  I love Disney – not gonna lie.  And Epcot is awesome.  Soaring…here I come!!

But – before I head off to see the Mouse, let me show you a fun little (literally!) notecard I made with the Feather & Frost stamp set and the All Things Thanks set.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Accented Blooms Send All Things Thanks

Mornin’, y’all!  How goes the weekend?

Well – I suppose it’s a little early to tell, huh?

I’ve got card making to do this weekend – our team has a fun Retreat planned next weekend and…I’ve got to get ready!  It’s going to be so fun and I can hardly wait – we’ve rented a super cool house that was purpose-built for crafting groups.  And they even have catering – so all WE have to do it craft – and eat – and chat!

For today, I’ve made a couple of quick thank-you cards!  I used the Accented Blooms and the All Things Thanks stamp sets from the Annual Catalog – on top of a couple of Santa’s Workshop Memories & More Note Cards and Envelopes from the 2018 Holiday Catalog.  Take a look-see:

Both cards have identical layouts on the smaller Memories & More Cards – I just changed up the coloring a little!

I inked up the large and lovely Accented Blooms corner image with Versamark ink and stamped the note card.  I sprinkled them with White or Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed the image with my Heat Tool.

I stamped the All Things Thanks sentiment in Poppy Parade on Whisper White.  Then I stamped it on Mossy Meadow, using Versamark.  That one I sprinkled with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heated it up.  I punched both sentiments with the Tailored Tag Punch.

I put a few Stampin’ Embellishments on the back of the punched sentiments and used them to wind some Silver Metallic Thread – then I popped the sentiment onto the card front.

I added a single Clear Epoxy Droplet and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a corner floral image from the Accented Blooms on a panel of Whisper White – one in Poppy Parade and one in Mossy Meadow.

I matted them on Poppy Parade panels and then adhered them inside my cards with Liquid Glue and the cards were done!

The Santa’s Workshop Cards and Envelopes have matching envelopes, so all I had to do was add that little Accented Blooms image to the fronts!  One is heat embossed in White and the other in Gold.

Et Voila!  I do love this beautiful corner image from Accented Blooms, don’t you?  And it’s perfect to add a great sentiment like this one from the All Things Thanks stamp set.  Be sure to pick up some of the Santa’s Workshop Memories & More Cards and Envelopes – you get two sizes in the pack.  Handy, huh?!  Hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix

‘Member me telling you yesterday that Finn accompanies me on my morning walks?

Well…he does.

Uhm…mostly.

I realized that he’s started to sort of…cheat.

About the time I hit the 2mile point, I notice that he’s not with me.

I call.

Sometimes I call LOUDLY and hit the collar.

And then I keep walking.

Yesterday I figured out “the drill”.

“Heeeeyyyy, Mom – here I am!”

“Ya done yet?  I’m ready to go in and get a drink and lay in front of that cold air thingy…”

I have to repeat.  Cuz…it bears repeating.

SMART smart boy.

Stampin’ Up! Large Letters and Springtime Daisies Hello!

Happy weekend, my peeps!  Hope you’ve got something fun planned??

My card today is one that uses a few different tools from my arsenal!  I’d been playing with a design in my head for a minute and decided it was time to try to implement it.  I used the Large Letters Framelits and some Daisy Punch flowers.  Along with a little Springtime Foils and Sweet Soiree Specialty DSPs.  Take a look-see:

The inspiration for the card came from the Floral Statements stamp set in the Annual Catalog!   Continue reading

Stampin’ Up! 2018 Occasions Catalog Sneak Peek – Flying Home!

Good morning, y’all!  Hope you’re ready for a weekend!  I know I am – and I’m ready for this one in particular!  Should be headed to the airport tomorrow to fly home on Sunday!  Whoo-hoo!  

I wanted to share a fun little card I made with the new 2018 Occasions stamp set that I won in a Prize Patrol last week at OnStage!  I was so excited – because I loved this set from the second they showed it on stage!

So I decided to just go ahead and make a card with it – and those absolutely adorable little birds and butterflies sort of said “inchie” to me.  I added a quick sentiment from All Things Thanks and some Night of Navy Gingham ribbon.  Take a look-see:

I started with a simple piece of Whisper White card stock, matted on Basic Black.

I stamped 9 little Flying Home images in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on 9 little 7/8″ squares of Whisper White.  Each one of those squares is matted with Liquid Glue on a scalloped edge square – 1″ (hence the name!) – cut from the Layering Squares Framelits.  I let the squares be just the tiniest bit “wonky” on their mats – I kind of liked the whimsical feel of them!

I used my Light Night of Navy and Light Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends to color each image and added some accents with my Night of Navy and Basic Black Stampin’ Write Markers.  Then I popped them all onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals – creating a grid – but not a too “severe” one.  If you’ll notice, they’re not all perfectly perfect.   

On the bottom of the card front, I stamped the sentiment from All Things Thanks using my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig.  I colored just the one word with my Night of Navy Marker – cuz that’s all I wanted!

There’s another little Flying Home butterfly next to the sentiment – stamped and colored identically to the others.

I wrapped a piece of Night of Navy 1/2″ Gingham Ribbon around the panel, securing it in the back with scotch tape, then used a second piece to tie a “faux bow” – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped the butterfly several times on a Whisper White panel, added flutterby tracks with my Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker and colored them with my Blends.

I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Basic Black 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 more Flying Home butterflies and flutterby trails on the front…

…and on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Seriously?!?  How cute are those little guys?!?  They’re just the icing on the cake in this gorgeous Flying Home stamp set!  I hope you like – and I know you’re writing this one down for when this super catalog goes live in January!! 😉

Did you Miss the Stamparatus Reservation Yesterday?

The Next Window Opens on 5 Dec

You’ve been hearing about the new stamp-placement tool from Stampin’ Up! called the Stamparatus!!  And I know for certain sure that you want (no….need one!).  And you can reserve your very own for delivery in February!!  

If you missed out on this round, don’t worry, there’ll be another reservation period starting on 5 December!

A few of you have asked questions about adding a host code to the reservation.  Since the order will not be generated and you will not be charged for the Stamparatus until they’re ready to ship, you won’t be able to add the host code until then.  This is how the ordering process will work:

  • After you get your tool reserved, you will get an email from Stampin’ Up! confirming your reservation.
  • You will get an email from Stampin’ Up! in early February letting you know that an item has been added to your shopping basket.
  • At that point, you can log into your Stampin’ Up! account in my online store and you will find the Stamparatus in your shopping bag.
  • You can add other items to your order at that time if you’d like and add a host code to it before submitting the order.  So the checkout process will work just like it always does.  You can add a host code and your payment information at the time of checkout.

Here is a quick tutorial for the reservation process:

In case you’re still wondering what the fuss is all about…check out this video (be sure to watch all the way and see The Hinge Step!!)!

Why do you need one? Well…

  • Make multiples with ease
  • Consistently stamp crisp, clean images
  • If you want a darker impression, apply more ink and restamp—no need to start over
  • Make fewer mistakes, saving time and money
  • Easily create 2-step, 3-step, and 4-step stamped images using reversible plates
  • Develop new and specialized stamping techniques with adjustable stamping plates and precision placement

Here’s the product details!

  • Compatible with Stampin’ Up!’s red rubber and photopolymer stamp
  • Foam mat to use with photopolymer stamps
  • Rulers and gridlines for quick measuring
  • 2 open sides so you can stamp on larger paper
  • 2 reversible plates: a total of 4 surfaces to work with
  • 2 magnets to hold the paper in place
  • Magnet storage areas

Retail Price–$49.00 USD

Okay. I’ve gotta have one. How do I get in line?

With the launch of this tool, we’re trying something different: testing a new reservation system.  It acts like a true preorder: you reserve your spot and we guarantee shipment as soon as the product arrives in our warehouse. Customers will place reservations and receive their product at the same time. This system will allow us to get the product to market as soon as possible while avoiding backorders and efficiently managing inventory.

The global launch will feature three reservation windows. For each window, please note the following:

  • Reservation quantities are while supplies last.
  • 1 tool per customer per reservation window. 
  • You can participate in multiple reservation windows.
  • In order to reserve your Stamparatus, you must provide your credit card information.
  • Credit cards will not be charged until the Stamparatus ships from our facility. When you close your order, be sure to verify that your credit card and shipping information is correct.

Click here for a flyer with lots of FAQs and answers!!

RESERVATION WINDOWS        AVAILABLE TO SHIP
December 5–30, 2017 Approx. March 19, 2018
January 15–30, 2018 Approx. April 15, 2018

Stampin’ Up! Painted Color Me Happy Thanks

Hey, y’all!  Happy Saturday!  Hope you’ve got a fun weekend planned.  Or a restful one.  Not sure you can really do both…but if you can – more power to you!  I think I’ve got a couple hours at work then it’s laundry day!  And cards cards CARDS!

Guess what’s almost here, y’all??

Well – yes…OnStage.  But I was really thinking of….the release of the new Stampin’ Blends!!

I’m so excited for you to get them in your hot little hands – I do believe you’re going to be tickled with them!  They’re going to be available to you on the 1st – which is next Wednesday!  When they come out, there will also be a new (limited supply!!) stamp released – called Color Me Happy!

It’s chock full of wonderful, color-able, line art images for you to use with the coordinating Color Me Happy Project kit (which will ONLY be available while supplies last!!)…

…or all by itself!  Which is what I did today.  I added a little Painted Autumn DSP and a couple of sentiments from All Things Thanks and made…take a look-see:

For the layout, I borrowed the sketch from this week’s Freshly Made Sketches.

So, y’all know this kind of card – where I have to build on the card front itself – strikes fear in my heart, right!?  So this one is a huge act of bravery!

I first stamped a rectangle of Whisper White card stock with the pretty flower image in the Color Me Happy set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  Then, using my Light and Dark Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends, I colored the flowers.  When I was done with the Pumpkin Pie flowers, I went back over them with the Dark Daffodil Delight Blends Pen to brighten it up and give it a little peachy hue.  Then I matted the panel on a piece of Early Espresso.

The middle panel is from the Painted Autumn DSP, matted on Early Espresso.  Then I wrapped a piece of Peekaboo Peach 5/8″ Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon around it, securing it in the back with scotch tape.  I made a faux bow by tying a short piece of the ribbon around it and pulling it snug.

For the sentiment, I pulled out my All Things Thanks stamp set and stamped it in Early Espresso on a square of Whisper White.  And matted that on Early Espresso, too.

To build the card front, I Fast Fuse’d the Color Me Happy panel directly onto the front of my Thick Whisper White card base. Then I popped the Painted Autumn panel on with Stampin’ Dimensionals – and did the same with the sentiment square.

I decided it needed just a little something more, so I stamped and colored another flower from Color Me Happy, fussy cut it and adhered it with Liquid Glue and a Mini Stampin’ Dimensional.  I added a tiny Rhinestone Basic Jewel to the middle and that was it for the card front!

On the inside, I used my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to add a second All Things Thanks sentiment in Early Espresso on a Whisper White panel.  Over the top, I stamped a Tuxedo Black Memento Ink Color Me Happy Flower and colored it with my Dark and Light Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends.  I even added another Rhinestone Basic Jewel!

I Fast Fuse’d the panel to an Early Espresso Mat and into my Thick Whisper White card base and the card was done!

On the front of my Whisper White Medium Envelope, I stamped two more Color Me Happy flowers in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  Here’s a tip:  the plastic sheet from the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig fits inside our Medium envelopes perfectly!  Slide that in before you color the flowers with the Stampin’ Blends – it’ll protect the back of your envelope from the inevitable bleed-thru!  I used more Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie…

…and then I added a little more of the Painted Autumn DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I have the Color Me Happy Project Kit – and will be showing you the completed cards on the 1st.  But – the Color Me Happy stamp set is completely stand-alone as a wonderful set filled with beautiful images and fun sentiments.  I hope you like – and are planning to snap them up quick like a bunny come next Wednesday! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Seasonal Layers and Burlap Thanks!

‘Sup, y’all?  Are you anxiously awaiting the arrival of the weekend?  I am.  Looking forward to leaving the work phone in the bedroom and having my headset tell me…”Phone 2 Disconnected”!! 🙂

As I type this on Thursday afternoon, I have – over on my craft table – a big box.

It says….”Stampin’ Up!” on the side.  Guess what’s in it??  Yep – my pre-order from the new 2017 Holiday Catalog!  I’m thinking I’ll do a quick pop-up FB Live video to show y’all what’s in it.  So – if I did that – AND you joined me – thanks!  And…was it awesome?  

Of course it was awesome – what a silly question to ask my future self today.  In the past. Which is also the present!

My eyes just crossed…so, I think I’ll just get on with the card!

I made a clean and simple thank you card with the All Things Thanks lending the sentiments.  The front is decorated with the Burlap background stamp, a strip of embossed card stock and a fall-ish leaf from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits.  Take a look-see:

I made this one using the sketch challenge at CAS(E) This Sketch – but apparently completely mis-read the closing date for the challenge, so I missed it! 🙁 Continue reading

Stampin’ Up! Glimmer Succulent and All Things Thanks!

Happy Monday, y’all.  When you read this, I’ll either be loading up to head to the airport, or laying on my bed in the fetal position, sucking my thumb and wailing….”I DON’T WANNA GO!!”  🙂

Cuz…I don’t wanna!  Finn doesn’t wanna me to, either!  Waaaa!

But.  It is what it is, yes?  And I’m sure once I get going, all will be well.  Right now, though, I’m working my way thru the pre-trip panics!

Enough about that!  Let’s look at my card for today.  I used the new Glimmer Paper – it’s hard for me to resist it, really!  And some Succulent Framelits and Succulent Garden DSP.  And the All Things Thanks for a couple of sentiments.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Succulent Garden Thanks for the Happy Stampers Blog Hop

HappyStampersBlogPostBanner-2
Good morning, y’all – welcome to another edition of the Happy Stampers Blog Hop!  It’s sketch challenge week and, with the Occasions catalog and Sale-A-Bration being live, I’m guessing you’re going to see some great new ideas for using new stamp sets and tools.  So, be sure to check out everyone’s projects, okay?

Here’s the sketch we all used!

14035004_10210533704447159_4579803154245127680_n
I took a teensy bit of liberty with the sketch, and used several piece of the gorgeous new Succulent Garden DSP – I just love this paper!!  I decorated the card with flowers from the Oh So Succulent stamp set, all cut with their matching dies from the Succulent Framelits.  And my sentiment?  All Things Thanks – from the Occasions catalog.  Take a look-see:
