Stampin’ Up! Layered Letters and Another Sneak Peek!

So, as I write this Sunday morning post on Saturday afternoon – I’m ridiculously tickled with the return of the Hummingbirds!  I’ve had my feeders out for a few weeks now and we’ve had one little dude coming by for the last couple.  Today – we’ve got TWO of them.  One – I’m pretty sure – is the same that’s been visiting.  I can tell cuz he’s green.  And his wings flap really really fast.  And he’s tiny.  So I know it’s him! 😉  But now he’s got a little friend – this one has the red band under his chin.  I just love watching them on the feeders.  

Does make it hard to wash dishes though, at least without getting water everywhere cuz I’m so busy trying to peer out the window and wash at the same time.  That’s multi-tasking.  Sometimes it works better than others! 🙂

Anywhoooo – on to the cards for today.  Yes – cards!  I have one that I made to share and two that I brought home from OnStage.  They were the Make-and-Takes, so they’ll be a good little peek at some more new Annual Catalog things.

But first, the card I dreamed up all by myself! 🙂  My friend needed another card – this time for a young (?) lady who was trying to learn to ride a motorcycle.  With her boyfriend.  They were apparently on separate bikes, riding slowly thru their neighborhood while she was getting the hang of riding.  He got a little ahead of her, she throttled up – a little more enthusiastically than she’s planned.  The bike jumped a little and she subsequently throttled up even more….and went into the curb.  The bike stopped.  She didn’t.  Here’s the kicker.

She wasn’t wearing a helmet.

Seriously?!?  Learning to ride – and no helmet.  No helmet is a bad plan for any rider, but a new rider??  She’s danged lucky to just be alive, let alone without serious injury.

So – I was asked for a card.  Now, if this was about 5 weeks from now….I might have a motorcycle stamp (that’s a hint….).  But not now.  And I couldn’t make the bike in Pedal Pusher even sort of look like a motorcycle.

I decided to go with more of a….road rash….theme.  I used some Layered Letters, a little Timeless Textures and a nice little sentiment from And Many More (sadly retiring!).  Take a look-see:

It’s a little hard to tell – black is really tough to photograph! – but the card base is black, and the card front is Blackberry Bliss.  I really went for it with the bruised and battered theme!

Stampin’ Up! Floral Wings Petite Pairs Get Well!

Happy Weekend, y’all!

Heading into the last day of OnStage Live.  It’s been a great event – punctuated by lots of Prize Patrols and whoo-hoo-ing – and a great new catalog.  I’ll be bringing home a few make-and-takes, that showcase some of the new products, and I’ve taken lots of display pictures – that I’ll share with you with the updates on Tuesday!  I can’t wait for you to see the new goodies!  


Today’s card is another one that uses a non-Stampin’ Up! pet stamp image.  I’ve used this cute little tilty-headed lab before – here’s a link to one, if you’re interested!  I combined it with a few images from the Host Exclusive stamp set called Floral Wings and sentiments from And Many More and Petite Pairs.  Add in some pretty DSP and, well, take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Rose Garden Happy Birthday for the Happy Stampers Blog Hop


Good morning, y’all – it’s Thursday and that means it’s Happy Stampers Blog Hop Day!  I’m sure happy that you’re taking time out of your busy day to stop by and see what we’re all up to this week!

Today we had a color challenge – you’ve probably figured out that we alternate weeks: sketch-color-sketch…  The color challenge for today was to use three colors that really complement each other perfectly!


Working this card made me realize something…Mossy Meadow – one of my all-time favorite colors! – will be going away soon. 🙁  It’s part of the 2014-2016 In Color collection – and, as it’s 2016….well.  It – along with Blackberry Bliss, Hello Honey, Lost Lagoon and Tangelo Twist will be yielding their spot in the Annual Catalog to….the new colors for 2016-2018!  I know those are going to be beautiful, but I’m sure gonna miss a few of these!  And that’s a head-up for you guys, as well – if these are favorites of yours, it might be time to start stocking up! 😉

So, for this card,  I pulled out some Birthday Bouquet DSP and the Rose Garden Thinlits.  I used a little White and Gold as neutrals with the challenge colors.  Take a look-see:
