Stampin’ UP! Butterfly Gala Happiness Blooms

Good morning, you guys. There’s no easy way to say this so…I’ll just come right out with it.  I’m sorry to tell you that I’ve decided to resign from Stampin’ Up! I realized this weekend that I am having trouble juggling work and SU! and something has to give.  Much as I love Stampin’ Up! – and YOU guys!! – I have to make the decision that makes the most sense for me and my family.

So – we’ll do this one last card and…this will be my last blog post. 🙁

The card I have to share with you uses the Happiness Blooms DSP and a few sentiments from the Butterfly Gala stamp set.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Happy Tails Sympathy on Wonderful Florals

Happy Happy Hawmmmp Day!  And – it just occurred to me – now don’t be scared – there’s a little less than 10 months till Christmas!


More pressing and germain to this blog – we’re 2/3 of the way thru Sale-A-Bration, can you even believe it??  Just one more month to fill your tool chest with free goodies!

My card for today is one that I hate having to make – it’s to express my condolences to a friend for the loss off their pet. 🙁  But – I hope it’ll bring a smile – at least for a minute.  I used the new Happy Tails stamp set and bundled Dog Builder Punch – plus a Wonderful Floral Framelits die cut.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Basketweave Springtime Stroll Thanks

Happy Hawwmp day, y’all!  I have to say that, for the first time in a really long time – I’m not anxious for the arrival of the weekend.

Not.  Even.  A.  Little.

But – I’ll be happy for y’all!!  So – whoo-hoo!!

My card today was inspired by one of the Catalog sample cards for the sweet host-exclusive Springtime Stroll stamp set.  For my version, I put it over top of some pretty Basket Weave embossed Soft Sea Foam.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Blossoming Baskets and Butterflies

Happy Happy Hawwwmp Day, y’all!  How’s the week going so far?

This card is one we made at our team meeting on Sunday!  I didn’t get it finished at the meeting, so I brought it home.  And made a few little changes from the original card.  It uses one of the coolest of the free Sale-A-Bration goodies – the Blossoming Basket bundle (available with a $100 purchase!).  Take a look-see:

We started with a Whisper White panel that we matted on Calypso Coral for the card front.  Then we adhered a Crumb Cake panel that was embossed in the Basket Weave Dynamic TIEF! Continue reading

Stampin’ Up! Floral Statements on Sheet Music for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Happy Thursday, y’all – and welcome to another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!! It’s sketch week and we’ve got the full complement of hoppers today!  Do be sure to check out all their projects when you’re done here, won’t you?  

A friend and team-member sent me a lovely card the other day – on which she’d used the Floral Statements stamp set and a Sheet Music stamp.  And that gave me the idea for this card today.  Take a look-see:

Our sketch for today…

And I got my color scheme from the Global Design Project color challenge.

I started with a Soft Suede card base and embossed the front in the new Basket Weave Dynamic TIEF (which is still available as a free SAB goodie, bundled with the Blossoming Basket stamp set, with a $100 purchase).  Using an almost-dry Sponge Dauber with Soft Suede ink, I rubbed it on the three sides of the card front and quickly sprinkled it with Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heated it up.  

For the art, I stamped the Sheet Music image in Soft Suede on a Very Vanilla panel.  Then, using my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig, I stamped the Floral Statements image in Versamark and heat embossed it in Copper.  While I was at it, I did the same again on a Vellum card stock sheet.

I stamped the Burlap image in Soft Suede on a Pear Pizzazz panel, tore the edges and then rubbed them with my Soft Suede Sponge Dauber – then I adhered it on an angle with Liquid Glue.  I tore and sponged the art panel in the same way.

With some Liquid Glue, I adhered a length of 5/8″ Burlap Ribbon over the Pear Pizzazz panel.  

I colored the flowers with my Calypso Coral and Pear Pizzazz Stampin’ Write Markers and then popped the art panel onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  With a Stitched Shapes Framelits circle die, I cut a circle from the Vellum panel.  Then I used Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals – just under the embossed portions – to pop the circle onto the art panel.

I made a Linen Thread Double-Loop Billie Moan Bow and adhered it with a Glue Dot.  Finally, I nestled a Pear Pizzazz heart Enamel Shape under the bow and the card front was done!

On the inside, I took a Very Vanilla panel and embossed across the bottom with the Basket Weave Dynamic TIEF.  Then I lightly sponged it with Soft Suede.  I matted the panel on Pear Pizzazz, then wrapped some Linen Thread twice around the panel and tied a little bow.

I added a Pear Pizzaz heart, Fast Fuse’d the panel into the card base and the card was done.

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got a few enamel hearts on the front…

…and then I embossed the envelope flap in the Basket Weave Dynamic TIEF.

Et Voila! Thank you, Carole, for the great idea!  I think the two images in the Floral Statements set are so pretty and, of course, Sheet Music.  Hello?  It’s.  Sheet.  Music!  Hope you like!

Merry Monday, y’all!  Well…it IS Monday – you decide if it’s Merry or not!

If you were able to join me last night for my FB Live video, I appreciate you spending part of your weekend with me!  If not, but you’d like to watch and see how I made today’s card, here’s a link to the YouTube replay!

I was celebrating the arrival of my little yellow daffodils – they took last year “off”! – and made this card with the gorgeous flower image from the You’re Inspiring stamp set.  And, after seeing a card on Pinterest (thanks for sending it, Elisha!), I wanted to try the technique.  Take a look-see: Continue reading

Stampin’ Up! Sweethearts, Baskets and Sunshine Wishes Love Note

Happy Friday, y’all!  The week is drawing to a close and, for me, it’s doing it from Huntsville!  Found out on Wednesday that I had to come over here the next day to get my computer updated and pick up my new work phone.  So – typing this post on Thursday evening from my hotel in Huntsville.  Will head home Friday afternoon!

Got some fun plans for tomorrow – a friend and I are going to a StampNStorage pop-up sale on the north side of Atlanta!  20% off everything AND 30% off Magnetic cards!  And we can walk right out with them.  Whoo-hoo!  

Now – my card for you today has no stamping!  A little bit of ink from a Stampin’ Blend – but…no stamps were inked in the making of this card!  Just some pretty Painted With Love DSP, the Sweetheart TIEF (Annual Catalog), the Basket Weave Dynamic TIEF (be prepared to see a lot of this one, y’all!  And – BE READY TO GET IT NEXT WEEK!!) and some die cuts from the pretty Sunshine Wishes Thinlits.  Take a look-see:

I was playing along with the theme challenge from The Paper Players this week. Continue reading
