Stampin’ Up! Basket for You Birthday Bouquet Thanks

Good morning, y’all!  Hope your week is going well wherever you may be.

Before we get to the card for today, I wanted to give you a a teaser on an upcoming Stampin’ Up! promotion for the month of June!  When you hold a place an order or hold a workshop in June – and it can be an online workshop! – you’ll have the chance to earn extra Stampin’ Rewards!  Hosts who have qualifying orders with $350 or more in sales during the promotion period will receive $35 in Extra Stampin’ Rewards for the order.  I’ve put all the details over on the Stampin’ Up! Promotions page – so take a gander at them and get ready!  It’s prefect timing with the kick-off of the new catalog! 🙂  And hey – join my Online Host Club – starting 1 June! – and perhaps your name will be drawn as the Host for June!  See the deets on the club here or down below!

I thought I’d share a fun little card with you today – it’s one that came into my head as soon as I saw the sketch challenge.  I love when that happens – it makes things go so quickly.  It’s especially nice when the idea in my head is actually something I can implement with paper and SU! tools.  Doesn’t always happen that way…. 😉

This one uses the new Squares Layering Framelits – which I love!  And I added some soon-to-leave us Birthday Bouquet DSP.  I pulled the pretty sentiment banner from the new Host set called Basket For You.  Take a look-see:

Here’s the sketch that inspired me – it’s from TGIF Challenges….TGIFC55: Continue reading

Stampin’ Up! Watercolor Wishes and Birthday Blooms!

21 May 16 Update!  I just found out that this card was selected as the Chic of the Week over at Just Us Girls!!  Want to thank Judy Woodland for selecting my card and send a shout out to all the wonderful cards that were submitted! 🙂


Good morning!  As I write this, it’s Saturday evening here in the Veggie Patch.  Yep – I’m the vegetable and my 350 square foot hotel room is my little patch of heaven!  I’ve spent the day in my jammies, watched a lot of tv, made exactly one card (bad Mary, bad!), done a little napping, and….I had chicken dinner from The Olde Pink House! 🙂

No – they don’t deliver.  But, it turns out that I am richly blessed with friends.  The young engineer who I’ve been carpooling with these past few weeks came by and brought me lunch.  When I said yesterday that I figured I’d spend the day vegging in my room and pass on lunch – he said “that’s great – you deserve a day of vegging.”  So…that’s really sweet (unless it means I’m looking really haggard…. 🙂 ) of him.  I didn’t expect him to bring lunch for me.  What a lovely surprise that was – and surely reminds me that surrounding ourselves with people we care about – and who care about us – is one of the most important things in our lives.  And makes every day richer, huh?

Yep – all that from one chicken dinner.  I told you – it’s epic! 🙂

So – the one card I stirred myself to do today is one of the two I’ve got commissions to make.  The lady who asked me to make her a birthday card for her mother told me “she’s girly and likes frilly things…and her roses!”  Which made the stamp choice a complete no-brainer for me. Birthday Blooms boasts a spectacular rose image, so I combined it with some Birthday Bouquet DSP (probably the thing I’ll miss the most from the Occasions Catalog) and added a couple of sentiments from Watercolor Wishes.  Take a look-see:

I let the good folks over at Pals Paper Arts help me with the layout, using PPA #300 as inspiration. Continue reading

Stampin’ Up! Petite Pairs with Grateful Bunch

Update (9 May 16) – just found out that this card was selected as a Design Team pick over on Stamp Ink Paper.  Check this card and the other winners at this link!  What a nice honor to be given! 🙂

Happy Star Wars Day, y’all!  May The Fourth Be With You! 🙂

I’ll tell you, this week is going by fast!  And work is heating up – fixin’ to be doing some really long days. The kind that start at the hindquarter-crack-of-dawn!  Yuk.  Which means I’m really kind of regretting my days of….sloth!….of this past weekend!  I usually, when I’m away like this and working long days, try to get all my cards for the week done on the weekend.  Cuz I know I’m going to get back to the hotel in a state of brain-deadness; wanting nothing more than dinner, a shower and to veg out in front of the tv till I fall asleep!

But – I must say, I can’t regret what I did on my days of sloth!  Eating great food and browsing the historic district in Savannah on Saturday and stamping with a friend on Sunday!  So, I’ll take it like a man…a WOman, that is!….and git ‘er done this week!

Today’s card uses another couple of things that are retiring – Petite Pairs stamp set and a little more of the lovely Birthday Bouquet DSP.  To that, I’ve added some flowers from the Grateful Bunch stamp set, punched with their matching Blossom Bunch Punch.  Which are not – thankfully! – retiring!  Take a look-see:

The design for my card was inspired by the Mojo Monday sketch #446: Continue reading

Stampin’ Up! Watercolor Wishes Just a Note

Good morning!  Well, it’s Sunday, so Amy and I are likely beginning the trek back to Joh-ja (that’s Georgia for you yanks!) as you’re reading this.  OnStage Live is done for 2016 – and….we found out right at the end that the next event – OnStage Local, this November – will have one venue in Atlanta!!  Now, that’s worthy of a whoo-hoo! No travel required!! 🙂  We were so happy to get this news!

We made sure to get our picture taken under the #Onstage2016 sign before we left.  I have no idea why I’m holding that flower stick like that! 😉

Amy and me under the sign
I’ve got a lot to share with you – starting tomorrow afternoon! Sneak peeks of the wonderful new catalog.  Expect a “regular” post from me in the morning and then a second post in the afternoon.  That second one will also contain the Retiring Products list and might even announce a new Stamps-N-Lingers ordering special!  So be watching your Inbox tomorrow, okay!?

My share for today is a clean and simple card that’s a little bit out of my wheelhouse – brighter colors and more….geometric-ness….than I usually use.  I borrowed a sentiment from the lovely Watercolor Wishes stamp set, and some Birthday Bouquet DSP.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Garden in Bloom Smiles!

Well, good morning! Here we are, half way thru the weekend, getting closer and closer to OnStage next week! Practicing my “whoo-hoo”ing – in preparation for the unveiling of the new 2016-2017 Annual Catalog! Should be pretty exciting. I’m also going to get to tour the home office, so I’m psyched for that, too! 🙂

My share for today uses the very pretty Annual catalog stamp set called Garden in Bloom. It has such pretty flowers – two step and three step images! I added a little sentiment from Greatest Greetings – in the Occasions catalog (hoping it makes it into the new catalog!). And, when you add in Birthday Bouquet DSP, this is what you get. Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Grateful Bunch Honeycomb Easter Lamb Four Panel Fun Fold

Good Friday morning to you!  This week has flown by!  I had a great time in Huntsville this week.  Well, the work part was….tedious….but the rest of it was awesome!  I had lunch twice with my friend Matt – one of the very wonderful young men who I’ve told you about this past year.  He’s living in Huntsville – his brother Chris is up at UGA at Vet School!  I’m so darned proud of them both – couldn’t be more so if I’d birthed them myself.  They’re growing into just outstanding human people!! 🙂  Matt and I had a really good time.  Definitely something to look forward to for future visits there.

For today, I have a card to share that’s a reprise of a four panel fun fold that I did a week or so ago.  It’s going to be a quick explanation of the “fold” part – I’ve got the specifics over on my Tutorials Page! 🙂  This one uses the Honeycomb Happiness stamp set (Sale-A-Bration), Easter Lamb and Birthday Blossoms stamp sets.  And my fave flowers – the Blossom Bunch Punch flowers!  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Cups & Kettle Birthday Blooms – and Blog Candy Winner!

Happy Hawp Day!  I’m especially glad that it’s Wednesday cuz that means I’m a day closer to heading home!  Yeah!!

We have a Blog Candy winner – check it out below….

Today’s card is a bit of a departure from the norm for me.  Not too far off the beaten path, but…it’s a little frillier than I might normally make.  I used the Cups & Kettle Framelits dies and some of the Birthday Blooms stamp set.  And more of the gorgeous Birthday Bouquet DSP.  And Watermelon Wonder 1″ Dotted Lace Trim.  What looks like a lot of dotted lace!  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Birthday Blooms and Bouquet For You


Mornin’, y’all – hope you remembered to spring forward!  If not – go spring ’em.  I’ll wait.

Better now?  No?  Yea – hard to be better when you just instantaneously lost an entire hour of your Sunday! 🙁

I did not get as many cards done today as I’d planned.  There was breakfast and laundry.  And lunch.  And the duck incident.  Then a few hours of card making.  Then dinner.  Then the horses….

Oh – the duck incident!  So, I’m making a card and I stand up to go to the Big Shot.  Out the window, I see there’s just a heck of a commotion in the pond.  I hurry into the kitchen to get my glasses so I have a half a shot of seeing what the heck is going on – and I see there’s two mallards just a fussin’ away.  I mean – they were going at it!

I ran out to the golf cart and raced around the house – and start hollerin’ at them – threw a rock…nothing.  Okay, the rock didn’t go very far, but still.  Normally, if you even look in their direction they’re gone.  But not today.  So, I raced back around the house and found Wayne and we went all the way out to the pond.  That’s when we see that there’s also a hen.  Apparently, the two males were interested in….well.  You know.

That poor hen – she kept going under the water to get away from them – that’s why we didn’t see her right off the bat.  And she stayed there for a long time.  Do ducks swim under water?!?  She was finally able to get to the bank, where the two boys rather sheepishly joined her.  They all spent quite a bit of time fluffing and preening and quacking at each other.  And pretending that that hadn’t just happened.  And then they all left.

I have but one word.


Whether they walk on feet with toes or webs…. 😉

But my reaction to the two duck dudes doing what duck dudes have done since God made ducks….well, that’s why I don’t keep chickens.  Or sheep.  Or anything that can’t take pretty good care of itself.  I get a little whack when that fighting and trying-to-kill-each-other crap goes on.  Wayne might have been laughing at me just a little – to his credit he hid it well!

So.  Anywho!  The third card I made is the one I’m sharing with you today.  It’s a super simple single stamp set card!  And it features the Birthday Blooms stamp set and the oh-so-gorgeous Birthday Bouquet DSP.  You’re going to see that a couple more times this week – I just got another pack in and I’ve kind of gone crazy with it!  This DSP and stamp set – well, I hope it goes forward to the Annual Catalog.  This and the Grateful Bunch Bundle! 🙂  Anyway, take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Awesomely Artistic What I Love Thanks!

Update on 1 Mar 16:  This card was selected as a runner-up (Princess) at Freshly Made Sketches!  Whoo-hoo and many thanks to the ladies over at FMS for picking my card out of all the wonderful cards submitted.  Please take a minute and go check out the Queen of Clean (Wendy – from Simply Made) and the other Princesses! 🙂

Well, it was a spectacularly gorgeous day here in Atlanta – the kind of day that makes those of us who live here glad of it!  And helps to make up for the really cold winter days and the oh-so-freakin’-humid summers!  Southerners know that Spring (and Spring-like days in February!) and Fall are our reward for the winter and summer.  Heck if every day in the South was like today – folk would be flocking here even more than they already do! 🙂

Today’s thank-you card (yes, I need a lot of thank-you cards!) brings back one of the beautiful springy stamp sets from the Annual Catalog.  Awesomely Artistic has one of the prettiest floral stamps that I’ve seen.  I grabbed a sentiment from the Sale-A-Bration set called What I Love and some pretty paper from the Birthday Bouquet DSP and….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:
