Stampin’ Up! At Home With You in the City!

Happy post-Eclipse Day!  I hope you enjoyed the event yesterday, wherever you were.  We pretty much watched it on television – cuz they were showing some pretty spectacular images!  Pretty cool.

My card today is the one that I gave to Matt on Sunday – with a couple of gift cards in it – Home Depot and Bed, Bath and Beyond.  Both seemed appropriate for setting up a new house!  I used the In the City host-exclusive set, and a bunch of elements from the At Home With You bundle.  On the inside is a sentiment from the Home Life stamp set.  Take a look-see:

Congrats on Your New Home - Stamps-N-Lingers 7

I designed the card based on the FabFriday challenge – making a pocket for the gift cards.

If you look – the gift cards are the “embellishment” on the right side. 🙂

I started with a Crumb Cake card base, and stamped a couple of the images from the In The City stamp set in Crumb Cake across the front.

The angled panel is a piece of Crushed Curry that I embossed in the Pinewood Planks Dynamic TIEF and then added some faux stitches with my Cajun Craze Stampin’ Write Marker.

Congrats on Your New Home - Stamps-N-Lingers 3

I stamped the door from the At Home With You set in Early Espresso onto a piece of Wood Textures DSP and cut it out with the die in the matching At Home Framelits.  

I popped the Crushed Curry panel onto the card base with Foam Adhesive Strips (I only used the foam on the top, bottom and left side – leaving the right side open for my gift cards) and then adhered the cut door with Liquid Glue.

Congrats on Your New Home - Stamps-N-Lingers 2

Then I got busy decorating my front door.  I stamped all the images from the At Home With You set in Early Espresso on Very Vanilla.  I pulled out a plethora of Stampin’ Write Markers to color everything:  Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive, Pear Wild Wasabi, and Tangerine Tango.

Once everything was colored and cut out with their matching dies in the At Home Framelits, I adhered everything with Liquid Glue and some Stampin’ Dimensionals.

For my sentiment, I cut the word using the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits – cutting three of them from Cajun Craze and stacking them with Liquid Glue.  I brushed it with my Clear Wink of Stella and adhered it to the front with Liquid Glue.

Congrats on Your New Home - Stamps-N-Lingers 7

I added a little Linen Thread Bow and a Touches of Nature Element with Liquid Glue.  Sticking my gift cards in completed the card!  

On the inside, I stamped a sentiment from the Home Life stamp set in Cajun Craze on a Very Vanilla mat.  Over the sentiment, I added more images from In the City in Crumb Cake.

Congrats on Your New Home - Stamps-N-Lingers 4

I added some more faux stitches in Cajun Craze, Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Crushed Curry mat and then into the card base, and that was it for the card.

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got more In the City Crumb Cake images across the front.

Congrats on Your New Home - Stamps-N-Lingers 5

…and then I added some more Wood Textures DSP to the envelope flap.

Congrats on Your New Home - Stamps-N-Lingers 6

Et Voila!  There’s more than one way to give someone some gift cards, yes?  And it seemed awfully appropriate to use the At Home With You bundle, Home Life and the In the City host-set.  I know Matt liked the card – it even got a spot on the refrigerator in his new house!  Hope you like, too!

Finn-Fan Fix  

So, today, while Wayne and I were looking thru a double-filtered welding helmet watching the not-to-be-seen-again-for-7-years eclipse, Finn was…bored.

I mean – nothing was happening.  It wasn’t particularly dark.

No aliens showed up.

No angels sang – no power went out.

Pretty nondescript kind of day.  

This is how his sister dealt with the event.

IMG_9517

Wishful thinking.  We were hoping to see this…

IMG_9515

What we really saw was….dim.

Just…dimness everywhere for about 2 minutes.  Even looking at the sun – we saw no corona.  No “diamond ring”.  Just a sliver of sun.

Kind of a let-down.

Finn’s response?

Let’s pull something out of the garden and see if anyone notices…

Stampin’ Up! At Home With You Sneak Peek!

Happy Hawwmp Day, y’all!

We had a few big things happen today.  Ready?  Okay.  Here we go.

Wayne saw the first king/rat snake of the year!  Whoo-hoo!  We were afraid maybe they’d been culled out by the hawks.  Mice – your days are numbered! 🙂

Wayne also got a clean bill of health from the GI doc – all the labs and tests they did during his surgery came back negative!  Whoo-hooo-hoooo!!!

And finally – and this is YUGE! – we found a Vietnamese restaurant close enough for us to actually go to – and we went there!  And it was good – and a nice/safe/clean place to eat!

Oh my goodness, y’all!  I’m tickled to death over this!

I was so happy (and full!) that I came home and played with a new stamp set and framelits.  The At Home With You bundle!  I paired it up with some Color Theory and Wood Textures DSP.  Take a look-see:

There’s a little surprise on the front…

Right?  The sentiments in the At Home With You are sized and meant to go “inside” the door!  And there are two dies that work together in the At Home Framelits to create the opening door!

I started with a piece of Crushed Curry paper from the Color Theory DSP stack and SNAILd it to a Tranquil Tide mat.  I think it looks like stucco!

Next, I stamped the door image in Early Espresso on a piece of the Wood Textures DSP and cut it with the dies in the At Home Framelits.  The only trick here is to be sure the non-cutting (in other words – the creasing side!!) of the door die is on the correct side of the image!

I also cut the door outline die from a piece of Whisper White card stock.  In order to get the inside sentiment aligned correctly, I used my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to get it stamped in the right spot.  I inked the sentiment from the At Home With You stamp set in Tranquil Tide, and added it to the Whisper White “door”.  Then I used Liquid Glue to adhere the door to the white piece and then onto the card front.

I inked two lanterns from the set in Versamark and stamped them on Whisper White, sprinkled them with Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed them.  I cut them out with their matching dies in the At Home Framleits, then I popped them on the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I colored the tops of the lanterns with the Soft Suede Stampin’ Write Marker, and the candle flame with Daffodil Delight.

I made the wreath and two flower pots – stamping the wreath in Old Olive and the pots in Early Espresso.  I colored the flowers in Powder Pink, Berry Burst, Pink Pirouette and Daffodil Delight and the leaves in Old Olive.  

I popped the flower pots on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and then filled the pots in with Crumb Cake.

For the wreath – I cut two more wreath shapes in Whisper White and adhered them all together with Liquid Glue then added it to the door with Liquid Glue.

For the door sign, I stamped the sign outline in Soft Suede and “Hello” – both in the At Home With You stamp set – in Soft Suede.  The sentiment is stamped in Tranquil Tide.  I cut it with its die and adhered it with Liquid Glue.  I finished it off with a tiny Linen Thread bow.

Finally, the welcome mat is inked with my Soft Suede and Tranquil Tide Stampin’ Write Markers.  I stamped it on Whisper White, cut it with its die and adhered it with Liquid Glue.

On the inside, I stamped a second At Home With You sentiment in Tranquil Tide on a panel of Whisper White.  Then I stamped the wreath in Old Olive – I covered part of the image with a small piece of tape.  Then I colored the flowers and leaves just like I’d done on the front of the card.

I added a little Linen Thread bow, SNAILd the panel to a Tranquil Tide mat and into my Daffodil Delight card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another At Home With You wreath…

…and I put some more of the Color Theory DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  No – really.  Et.  Voila!  I know it looks hard cuz it took a lot of words to say what I did.  But…it really wasn’t.  Just took a lot of words!  This At Home With You bundle is a ton of fun – with lots of sentiments and images for you to ensure that your card’s curb appeal is ready for any occasion.  Hope you like and are adding this one to your wish list!

Finn-Fan Fix…

Perhaps you’ve heard the old saying for new mom’s – sleep when the baby sleeps?

Well – apparently that’s true for dog-moms, too.  (Definitely not the most flattering pic of mom.  Thanks, Wayne!) 

The question is, though – how does the dog-mom saying go?  Is the Mom sleeping when the puppy is sleeping?

Or…is the Puppy sleeping when the mom sleeps.

He has two favorite places to be.  Well – three if you count my lap!

One is under my craft table! 🙂

The other is under my recliner.  So far under that it’s hard to see him.  

I think he thinks it’s a cave.

I just have to say it again.

He’s ridiculously cute and sweet.

TTFN

M

P.S.  No.  I haven’t squished him yet.  I’ve gotten so used to him being there that I always locate him before I put the foot rest down!
