Stampin’ Up! Cake Soiree Sneak Peek Fun Fold Birthday

I’m not even going to mention that today is one week – exactly! – before Christmas!  About this time next week, kids will be tearing down stairs and jumping on beds waking parents and anxious to see what Santa brought!

With any luck, the Post Office Santa will deliver the packages I’m sending TODAY (late much, Mary!?!) before Christmas.

And – to be clear – I mean THIS Christmas!! 😉

I hope you’re all ready and just settling back and enjoying the season at this point!  And – to help make it even merrier…head over to the Clearance Rack!  Stampin’ Up! just announced a refresh of the goodies – with savings up to 70% off!!  So – take a minute and stock up!  Merry Christmas to you! 

If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video, thanks so much (and many apologies for the repeat of the “the internet incident”!  I do not know what the deal is! 😦 ) – I appreciate you spending part of your last-Sunday-before-Christmas with me!  If not, but you’d like to see the re-play, here’s the link to it on YouTube (sorry that the first 10 min is gone)!

I used the coming-to-the-2018-Occaisons-Catalog bundle called Cake Soiree to make a fun-fold Birthday card.  Take a look-see:

This is a pretty easy fold to do – all the “hard” work is in a couple of cuts for the front!  All of which I show on the video! 🙂

One of the cool new goodies in the 2018 Occasions Catalog is the Sweet Soiree Embellishment Kit.  It contains printed card stock flower and number cut outs, silver-embossed Vellum cut-outs, some pretty tassels and mini clothespins, a length of Marina Mist 3/8″ Scalloped Velvet Ribbon and some silver Washi Tape.  In a word – it’s awesome!  

I used parts of the kit for this card – the Daffodil Delight cake on the front and the Silver Embossed Vellum flowers I decorated it with.  On the inside, those gorgeous flowers are some of the larger Vellum flowers – colored with my Stampin’ Blends in Old Olive, Calypso Coral, Rich Razzleberry.  I cut a rose from Silver Foil with the die in the Sweet Cake Framelits and added that, too.

On the inside, I stamped the cake image from Cake Soiree in Versamark on the inside of the cake cutout and heat embossed it in Silver.  Then I colored it with my Blends!

The sentiment on the front and inner liner are from a single sentiment stamp in Cake Soiree.  They’re both heat embossed in Silver.

I decorated a Whisper White Medium Envelope with one of the beautiful card stock cut out flowers in the Sweet Soiree Embellishment Kit – adhering it with Liquid Glue…

…and then I embossed the envelope flap in the same Petal Pairs TIEF that I used on the card front and sponged it with Daffodil Delight and Lemon Lime Twist.

Et Voila!  I know it’s hard to see how to make this with words and pictures – so do take a minute to watch the video!  And be adding all these wonderful goodies from the Sweet Soiree Suite to your wish list for January!  Hope you like!

Sale-A-Bration is Coming and that’s a GREAT time to get Host Benefits!

 

Would you like to receive host benefits ? Would you like to build up your Stampin’ Up! tool chest a little at a time?  Well then – an Online Host Club might be the perfect solution for you!

My next club will start up on 3 Jan (coincidently with the arrival of the 2018 Occasions Catalog and the start of Sale-A-Bration!) and I have a few openings available.

How does it work?  Well – at a glance…

You sign up for a 6 month term and agree to:

  • Place a $25.00 minimum order each month
  • Place your order by the 20th of each month
  • Use the Host code I’ll provide in an email sent out at the beginning of each month

And what do you get in return?

  • Based on a random draw, you’ll be the “host” for one of the six months
  • In your month, you’ll be guaranteed a workshop total of $150 – meaning no less than $15 in Stampin’ Rewards for you to spend!
  • In your Host month, your order ships FREE!
  • When you place a host club order – which you’ll do each month – you’ll get DOUBLE peppermints for that order!  So – if all you did was place your $25 order for the six months, you’d end up with 12 Peppermints.  Most folks end up with all 16 (and then some) – and earn a free $40 gift!
  • At the end of the club, you’ll get to choose a free stamp set up to $20!

Finn Fan Fix  

Finn and I’ve been working on some agility “moves”.

Well.  I’m “working”.  He’s playing!  Which is how training should be for the dog-partner, yes?

One of the things is sending him to jump onto flat surfaces and wait.

So – I send him to whatever I can find.

He goes.  Turns.  Watches me for the “click” and the cookie.

It’s all about the cookies. 🙂

Is it just me, or does it look like he’s wondering…what kind of loon for a mother did I get, anyway??

Or is that just …sheesh, Mom, hurry up with that cookie!

Stampin’ Up! Petal Passion Party Pandas Sneak Peek

Happy Friday, y’all!  And – as I write this on Thursday night, we’re waiting for snow!

At the grocery today – it was jammed.  I’m surprised there was any bread or milk left!  People get a little goofy here in the south when we think snow might show up.

Guess we’ll know tomorrow.  Uh – today! 🙂

Now, I swore to myself that I was going to do a card with current products today.  And I seriously meant to, y’all – really I did!  And then I saw a color challenge and…I saw Pandas!  Party Pandas from the 2018 Sale-A-Bration flyer, to be exact.  And…paper from the Petal Passion DSP.  So I ran with it, and…take a look-see:

And here’s the color challenge from the Color Throwdown that led me to the panda epiphany.

And, since I’m always looking for a little design help, I borrowed the sketch from this weeks MFT Wednesday Sketch challenge.

I started with a piece of the black and white paper from the Petal Passion DSP (avail 3 Jan in the 2018 Occasions Catalog) and colored some of the dots with my Light and Dark Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends and my Smoky Slate Stampin’ Write Marker.  Then I matted it on Cherry Cobbler card stock.

I cut two small Whisper White circles with my Stitched Shapes Framelits dies and matted them on scalloped circles of Cherry Cobbler card stock, cut with the Circles Layering Framelits.  I adhered them to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I stamped two of the Party Pandas (avail 3 Jan for FREE in the SAB Flyer) in Basic Black Archival Ink on Whisper White and fussy cut them.  The little guy on the bottom was holding a stamped balloon.  With no regard for “rules” I flagrantly cut it off!  I colored the top guy’s party hat with my Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Write Marker.  Then I used a bunch of Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop them onto the circles.

I colored the balloon with my Light and Dark Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends and added a little “light” with a non-SU! White Gel Pen. I popped it onto the card front with a Stampin’ Dimensional.

The sentiment, from Party Pandas, is stamped in Cherry Cobbler on Whisper White and cut with a die from the Bunch of Banners Framelits.  I edged it with my Cherry Cobbler Marker and added it to the panda with some Liquid Glue and a couple of Mini Dimensionals on the ends.

To finish off, I added a length of Basic Black Baker’s Twine, adhering it here and there with Liquid Glue, and a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels.

On the inside, I stamped the balloons in Basic Black Archival Ink up the side of a Whisper White panel.  How’d I do that?  Well…I cut the balloon and string right smack off of the rubber stamp!

gasp….

You can always stamp it by sticking it on a block all by its lonesome!

I did some paper piecing and stamped the balloon on more of the Petal Passion DSP, colored the dots with my Stampin’ Blends and snipped them out.  I adhered them with Liquid Glue and added some Party Panda “confetti” in Cherry Cobbler.

I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat and into my Smoky Slate card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals – and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Party Panda balloons and “confetti” up the side – this time all colored with Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends…

…and a little more Petal Passion DSP – colored – on the envelope flap!

Et Voila!  I’m sorry to keep showing you cute stuff you can’t have yet – really I am!  But – seriously?!?  How cute is this Party Panda stamp set?  And…it sure sweetens the deal that it’ll be a FREE-with-a-$50-purchase goody in the Sale-A-Bration Flyer!  Petals Passion DSP is in the Occasions Catalog, as part of a beautiful Suite of goodies!  Hope you like – and that your wish list just got a little longer! 🙂

That was Finn wearing his red light ’em up collar.

Stampin’ Up! Acorny Happy Birthday Blessings

Mornin’, y’all – happy Friday!  Another weekend approacheth! 🙂

I’ve got some birthdays coming up in the next few months so I decided to go ahead and get a card or two made.  For this one today, I used the so-wonderful Happy Birthday Thinlit!  And – the Count My Blessings stamp set.  Take a look-see:

I got the idea for several of the elements from this week’s Tic-Tac-Toe challenge – I went right down the right column…  

The sketch I used is the one from Freshly Made Sketches.

I started with some chevron-design paper from the Painted Autumn DSP, matting it on Old Olive with Fast Fuse.

The oval was cut from some Wood Textures DSP with a Stitched Shapes die – the largest of the oval dies – and adhered directly to the card front with some Liquid Glue.

Using the Happy Birthday Thinlit, I cut three of the sentiments from Very Vanilla card stock and adhered them together in a stack with Liquid Glue.

I stamped several of the large acorn image from the Count My Blessings stamp set in Early Espresso on Very Vanilla.  They’re all colored with Stampin’ Blends.  I used the Bronze Blend for the base of the acorns.  The top of the acorns is Dark and Light Crumb Cake and the leaves are Old Olive.  Once they were all colored, I spent a little time fussy cutting! 🙂  Hint:  If you love the Count My Blessings stamp set – and have been waiting to order it – now’s the time!  It’s retiring after the Holiday Catalog goes away – so…it’s only available while supplies last!

About the time I put my Blends back in their new StampNStorage shelf (shameless plug…), I realized that it would be cool to have a couple of acorns popped up on Dimensionals.  So – I stamped, colored and cut another set – one large acorn and one small.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the acorns in and around the thinlit die cut and then adhered it all to the card front.  I popped those last two acorns onto the top cluster with a few Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Finally, I brushed just the bases of the acorns with my Clear Wink of Stella.

To finish off the card front, I tied three tiny little bows from Linen Thread and adhered them to each acorn with a dab of Liquid Glue.

For the inside, I stamped the large acorn image again in Early Espresso on a Very Vanilla panel.  And then I colored it again with the Old Olive, Crumb Cake and Bronze Stampin’ Blends.

Hint.  Do not try to color when you’re in a hurry!  I mean – you can color quickly – but…don’t try to do it when you’re pressed for time or have something else you need to be doing other than enjoying the creative process.

Whoops.

So – started over and got my acorn successfully colored, then used my Blender Pen to pull some of the color out and around the image to create a shadow effect.

I Fast Fuse’d the panel to an Old Olive mat and into my Thick Very Vanilla card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

I repeated the Count My Blessings acorn on the front of my Very Vanilla Medium Envelope – don’t forget the plastic sheet from the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig inside your envelope when you color it with your Stampin’ Blends!  I repeated the Blender Pen treatment on this image as well…

…then I put some more of the Wood Textures DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I really really love this Happy Birthday Thinlits die – and I think it turned out beautifully studded with Count My Blessings acorns!  Hope you like!

Be sure to get your own copy of Count My Blessings right away – it won’t be around much longer! 😦

CHANGE IN STAMPARATUS RESERVATION WINDOWS!!  

YOU NEED TO READ THIS MESSAGE FROM STAMPIN’ UP!

The results are in! The first Stamparatus reservation window reached its maximum number of reservations in just 15 minutes, which provided us with some very important information: You LOVE this new stamping tool! We couldn’t be more thrilled; in fact, your response was so amazing that we’ve decided to make some important adjustments to the reservation process.
As was previously announced, the second reservation window will remain open from December 5–30; however, during this reservation period we will take as many orders as we receive (yay!) and not close the window until December 30. So whether the total number of reservations is 100 or 100,000, the window will stay open!
Please note the following changes:
  • Beginning March 19, we will ship Stamparatuses in the order the reservations were received (first in, first out) and continue through the next few months and beyond as product arrives in our warehouse. Because shipment dates are based on manufacturing lead times, not all of the reservations made during the December 5–30 window will ship on March 19 (as was previously announced).
  • In order to accommodate demand, limits have changed as follows:
    • One reservation per customer and one per demonstrator.
    • Because we are not limiting the maximum number of reservations for the second window, we will not offer a third window. This is the last chance for you and your customers to reserve a Stamparatus before it becomes available in the 2018-2019 annual catalog.

Please note what has not changed:

  • If you reserved more than one stamping tool during the first reservation period, that number will not change; you will still receive the same number you reserved.If you reserved one or more stamping tool(s) during the first reservation period, you may still order during the second window.
  • The reservation window will open at 2:00 PM (MT) on December 5.

We can’t wait for you to get your hands on your very own Stamparatus and look forward to seeing the projects you’ll make with this incredible stamping tool. 

I’ve got all the information over on my Promotions page – including a super little video with lots of information on this wonderful new stamp placement tool.  Be sure to check it out – peruse the how-to-reserve-your-Stamparatus tutorial you’ll find there, and then mark your calendar for the next reservation window on 5 Dec!!

Finn Fan Fix  

So.  I’ve had horses of my own now for…oh gosh.  Let’s see.  I got my first horse when I was…13?  14?  And, I’m 29 now, so that would make it….well – quite a long time. 🙂

I’ve had an Aussie Horse Herder for a little over a year.

Here’s the question.

How in the world did I ever EVER get these darned ponies to come into the barn and go into their stalls all by myself?

When I didn’t have an Aussie Horse Herder.

It was – I am sure! – sheer chaos!

But – no longer.

NOW they hasten into the barn – warily watching the great Aussie Horse Herder…

Well – except Bo.  He – the Wild Stallion – is not to be pushed.

He’ll make his way in at his pwn pace.

Thank you very much! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Painted Happy Birthday Eclipse Video Sneak Peek!

Good morning, my peeps!  Happy Sunday!

If you read yesterday’s post, you know I planned on doing laundry and cards, cards, CARDS.

Well – I did laundry.

And made one card.

And frittered.

You know frittering, yes?  My alarm went off at 5 so I could go to work.  A phone call cut that off.  But…I was awake.  So…

I took a bath.

And then I did the laundry.

Once it was done – I spent the rest of the day making one…single…card.  Which is to say I….worked on a card…took a little break…worked on the card….had some lunch…worked on the card…you get the drift.

When I had the card done enough to call it done enough…I “watched” movies on NetFlix.

Which is to say I slept thru several movies on Netflix. 😉 

They were bad ones, though, so it’s okay.  That’s what bad movies are for – sleeping thru!!  Frittering the day away.

The card I did make is what we’re going to look at tonight on my Facebook Live video at 8pm Eastern.  Take a look-see:

As you might be able to tell – there’s a little Painted Harvest and the Eclipse technique!!

Here’s a link right to my Stamps-N-Lingers Facebook page!  I do hope you’ll be able to join me!

Stampin’ Up! Fairy Celebrates a Birthday with Paint Play

Well.  It’s Friday.  As I type this on Thursday, we’re busy executing the “Mill Around Checklist”.  Which is aviator for “hurry up and wait”.  I thought I was done with that like…11 years ago!

Apparently not.  

Waiting for someone to make a decision.

Guess who that someone is NOT?

Yup.

Your friendly, neighborhood SU! demonstrator.  

Cuz…if it was her/me – the decision would have been made hours ago and we’d be doing something!!!

Sheesh.

Okay.  Rant over.  

Thank you for listening.

My card today is a super cute one (she says modestly), using the new Fairy Celebration and Paint Play stamp sets.  I used them to make a birthday card suitable for a little girl human – or a little-girl-at-heart human!  Take a look-see:

My layout was inspired by the sketch challenge over at My Favorite Things – but it’s already closed!

I selected my color palette from the Fab Friday color challenge this week:

And the Global Design Project challenge helped me decide to use the Fairy Celebration stamp set!

I started by heat embossing the fun little fairy image from Fairy Celebration in Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder on a piece of Whisper White card stock.  Then I cut it out with a Stitched Shapes Framelits circle die.  Using my Stampin’ Trimmer, I sliced a little off the bottom.  I matted it on a piece of Silver Foil that I cut with a scalloped-edge circle die in the Circles Layering Framelits.

Then I used my flat-bottom art piece to give me an idea where to stamp the fun images from the new Paint Play stamp set.  I used the colors of the challenge – Daffodil Delight, Lemon Lime Twist and Bermuda Bay – for this part.  I popped the art over top with Stampin’ Dimensionals and used my Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush to paint my fairy and her cherries (I used the Glitter Brush to pick up ink from the lid of my ink pads)!  I used Berry Burst for her wings, Daffodil Delight on her hair, Tangerine Tango for her top and Bermuda Bay for her skirt.  The cherries and leaves are Berry Burst and Lemon Lime Twist! 

The sentiment, from Fairy Celebration, is stamped in Bermuda Bay on a strip of Whisper White.  I snipped a banner in the end and used a little Liquid Glue to adhere it to a similarly cut mat of Silver Foil.  Then I used a Dimensional and Liquid Glue to adhere it to the card.

I wrapped a length of Berry Burst 1/2″ Finely Woven Ribbon around the card front, securing it in back with scotch tape, and tied a “faux bow” with a second, shorter, piece of ribbon.

A fewBerry Burst Glitter Enamel Dots on the sentiment banner and in the flower centers finished off the front of the card.

On the inside, I stamped some more flowers from Paint Play in the challenge colors and added another sentiment from Fairy Celebration in Bermuda Bay to a Whisper White panel.  Using my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig (and rubbing first with my Embossing Buddy), I stamped a second fairy image in Versamark, and heat embossed her in Gold.  Then I used my Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush again to color her in in Tangerine Tango, Berry Burst and Daffodil Delight (her hair).  As a finishing touch, I added some Glitter Enamel Dots (Crushed Curry and Berry Burst) to the flower centers.  

I SNAILd the panel to a Silver Foil 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 some more Paint Play flowers across the front (I used my Berry Burst Stampin’ Write Marker to color in the flower centers)…

…and then I added even more to the envelope flap!

Et Voila!  Cute cute stamp sets… Fairy Celebration is perfect for making a little girl’s birthday wishes come true!  And I love the Paint Play – the images look like they’ve been hand drawn with a crayon or big marker!  I hope you like and will consider adding them to your tool chest!

Stampin’ Up! Celebration Time Birthday

Happy Friday, y’all!  I hope your week has gone well – and that you’ve got something fun planned for the weekend!  

I played with a new bundle for today’s card – it’s the Celebration Time bundle and I think it’s got a lot of fun possibilities!  This card ended up with a shaker element and some Whole Lot of Lovely DSP.  Take a look-see:

I played along with a couple of challenges this week.  The first is the CAS-ual Fridays Tic-Tac-Toe challenge.  I love these!

For my card, I went from bottom left to top right, across the diagonal.

And I played along with the Word Challenge at Just Us Girls.

I started with a piece of striped paper from the Whole Lot of Lovely DSP, matted on Pool Party, for the card front.  The middle layer is a piece of Whisper White, dry embossed in the Polka Dot Basics TIEF, matted on more Pool Party and adhered to the card front at a diagonal.  I made the shaker using dies in the Celebration Time Thinlits.  I cut a solid tag in Whisper White, and a detailed tag in Powder Pink card stock.

Using some scraps of Pool Party card stock, I adhered a few squares behind the die cut presents with a little Liquid Glue.  Then I added a small square of Window Sheet with some more Liquid Glue.

To build the shaker, I put a little pile of Metallic Assortment Sequins on the white tag, and then used Foam Adhesive Strips around the back edge of the Powder Pink tag to adhere the two pieces together.  Here’s a tip.  Although I used the strips all the way around the edge of the tag, I added an additional piece across the tag – just under the top of the presents.  That made a smaller area for my sequins – ensuring that they’ll stay up in the window!

For the sentiment, I inked the image from Celebration Time in Versamark, then stamped it on a piece of Tranquil Tide card stock.  I sprinkled it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heated it up.  Then I cut the sentiment out with the handy die in the Celebration Thinlits, and adhered it to the tag with some Liquid Glue.  How fun is that?!?

I ran four lengths of Pool Party Solid Baker’s Twine thru the handy top hole in the tag and tied it together with a double length of Whisper White Solid Baker’s Twine.  Then I adhered the tag to the card front with Liquid Glue.

On the inside, I used my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to align another sentiment from Celebration Time on a Whisper White panel.  I used my Pool Party and Powder Pink Stampin’ Write Markers to color the gifts, and my Tranquil Tide marker to color the sentiment – coloring directly on the rubber stamp.  Then I added a couple of bows to the top of the gifts in Pool Party and Powder Pink.

I SNAILd the panel to a Pool Party mat and into my Tranquil Tide card base, popped my card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another little group of Celebration Time presents – I used the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig again to just get the tops of the gifts…

…and added a little more Whole Lot of Lovely DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I love the dies in the Celebration Thinlits – they’re so cute and perfect for making tags – to go on cards like I’ve done here, or to add to gifts!  And the stamps in Celebration Time mesh with the dies just perfectly.  Hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Magical Mermaid Birthday Card

‘Sup, y’all?  It’s Saturday – the 1st of July (lots of good deals starting today!) – and when you read this I’ll probably be at work – maybe not for the whole day.  Fingers crossed!  We’re trying to get a little ahead so we can take the 4th off – toes crossed for us! 🙂

Today’s card has another new stamp set on it – it’s called Magical Mermaid.  And it’s very cool!  It was the only stamp set I needed for this pretty little birthday card.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one comes from the Freshly Made Sketches challenge this week.

And the color scheme is courtesy of the Global Design Project challenge.

For this card, I used the actual front of the Pool Party card base as the card front.  To begin, I used my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to stamp the cute background image (crabs and shells and bubbles) from Magical Mermaid in Pool Party ink all over the front of the card.  Then I embossed it in my Seaside TIEF.

The middle panel is a piece of Pool Party DSP from the Petal Garden DSP Stack.  I SNAILd it on a Lemon Lime Twist mat and then SNAILd it to the card base.  Using Liquid Glue, I adhered a length of Berry Burst 1/2″ Finely Woven Ribbon across the panel.

For my Whisper White sentiment panel, I used the marker-to-stamp technique to color the Magical Mermaid sentiment with my Berry Burst and Lemon Lime Twist Stampin’ Write Markers.  I aligned the sentiment with my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig.

With Pool Party ink, I stamped the Magical Mermaid bubbles image around the sentiment.  Then I inked the sea-grasses image in Versamark ink and stamped it on both side of the panel, sprinkled them with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and melted the powder with my Heat Tool.  I colored the embossed grasses with my Lemon Lime Twist Stampin’ Write Marker.  I matted the panel on Lemon Lime Twist and used Liquid Glue to adhere it to the card front.

I heat embossed the mermaid in Gold on a piece of scrap Whisper White card stock and colored her with Stampin’ Write Markers.  I used all three challenge colors on her tail, finishing up with Pool Party.  Her headband is colored in Berry Burst. I did cheat on the color challenge a tad – I used So Saffron for her hair! 🙂

Then I fussy cut her and popped her over the card front with regular and mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.  And that was it for the front of the card.

On the inside, since I don’t do a lot of landscape-oriented card, I made sure that I was stamping everything the right way.  I used the marker-to-stamp technique again for the second Berry Burst and Lemon Lime Twist sentiment, added some more Magical Mermaid bubbles in Pool Party and then heat embossed a little more Gold sea grasses.

I SNAILd the panel to a Lemon Lime Twist mat and into the….ruh roh.

Sigh….

Yea.  You see it now that I said something.

I cut another piece of Whisper White and Lemon Lime Twist card stock and re-did the inside of the card.

In landscape.

(anyone need a perfectly good, portrait-oriented inner liner?!?)

I SNAILd it into the card and the card was done.  Finally! 🙂

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Magical Mermaid bubbles and sea grass (heat embossed in gold) on the front…

…and some more of the Petal Garden DSP on the envelope flap.  And I even heat embossed another little mermaid image in Gold.  Cuz I could! 🙂

Et Voila!  I wasn’t sure about this set, but I saw so many pretty cards made with it that I just had to have it.  And once I started playing with the fun underwater images – well.  I’m happy with my decision to add it to my stash!  Hope you like!

Bonus Days Bonus Days Bonus Days! 🙂

Christmas in July!!  Extra FREE stuff when you join!

Both – going on right now.

Questions??

Stampin’ Up! Whole Lot of Lovely Happy Birthday!

Okay folks – NOW I really am packed and ready to roll.

Well – maybe I need to add a suitcase – hopefully with clean clothes in it.

But otherwise I’m completely ready to roll!

Before I hit the road, though, I have a quick little card to share.  Folks – when you need a card quick, lean hard and heavy on our beautiful Designer Papers!  Yesterday I used the Petal Garden DSP Stack.  Today?  It’s the Whole Lot of Lovely DSP – and I added a quick and bold Happy Birthday Thinlit die cut.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one comes from the Freshly Made Sketches challenge this week.

I started out by picking one of the prettiest designs in the Whole Lot of Lovely DSP (in my opinion, of course!!).  Once I had the base for my card, I used the coordinating colors – so handy that they’re printed in the catalog and on the paper packaging!! – and cut a Tangerine Tango card front.

I embossed that panel in the new and beautiful Layered Leaves Dynamic TIEF.

Next up, I cut two pieces of my Whole Lot of Lovely DSP and matted them both on Powder Pink card stock.  Then I popped them both over my embossed Tangerine Tango card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

For my sentiment, I cut the Happy Birthday Thinlits die cut from a piece of Pool Party card stock and adhered it with Liquid Glue.  It looked a little…plain…to me, so I called up Stella and brushed the Clear Glitter all over the die cut,

I tied a small bow from the new Pool Party 3/8″ Shimmer Ribbon and adhered it with a Glue Dot.  And that was it for the card front!

On the inside, I used a flower image from Oh So Eclectic, and stamped it a few times in stamped-off-once Tangerine Tango across the bottom of a Whisper White panel.  I lightly colored each flower with my Blender Pen – picking up Powder Pink ink from the top of the ink pad lid.  Then I used my Soft Suede Stampin’ Write Marker to lightly color the flower centers.

I SNAILd the panel to a Calypso Coral mat and into my Pool Party card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more of the Oh So Eclectic flowers across the front…

 

…and some Whole Lot of Lovely DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I think this catalog has some of the prettiest designer papers of any that I’ve seen.  And so many of them!  This Whole Lot of Lovely is going to be a real winner – the designs with the black backgrounds are especially stunning!  And don’t forget about the uber-cool Oh So Eclectic stamp set and Happy Birthday Thinlits die.  Hope you like!

TTFN

Finn-Fan Fix…

This morning we played at the pond.

He swam and swam – it’s funny because he just goes padding about like a person doing laps.  Not going after anything or even going anywhere.  Just swimming because he can.

He finally got tired, though, and shared that with me in his usual way.

I’m done for a minute, Mom. 😉

That evening, I went and picked up the rental car.  Blessing #1:  I got an SUV. 🙂

Blessing #2:  all my stuff fits!

There’s even room for a suitcase!

Check out those cool new Paper Crates from StampNStorage!  I bought two of them with the 12″ x 12″ hanging file folders.  I have some of every color of card stock and all the DSPs – and Glimmer Paper – and Foil! – all nicely contained and protected!  And the cutouts mean the boxes are much much lighter than the normal paper holders.  Perfect for traveling!

Finn spent some time in the driver’s seat – giving me the look.  I couldn’t even take a picture.  He knows something is up and he doesn’t like it one single bit.

I’m sure going to miss his sweet self. 😦

TTFN

M  

P.S.  One of the things I packed was my camera phone stand/holder – so I’ll still be doing videos from Florida!  Planning on the first one tomorrow night at 8pm Eastern (fingers crossed I get the time conversion right!).  I’ve got a fun card to share and I’ll give you a tour of my hotel stamping area.  Hope I’ll see you then!

Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Bouquet Birthday

Happy Hawwmp Day, y’all!  Hope your week is going well.  Mine is going fast.  Way faster than I – even with Wayne’s help – am able to get my list of stuff done.  Before I leave out of here on Saturday.

On a brighter noter – I’m too busy to be thinking about leaving Finn.  And Wayne has plans to go do a roofing job and take him with him – so, he’ll have something to do on that first day.  I, of course, will be driving.  Bleh.

For today, though, let me share a card I made using the wondrous new Beautiful Bouquet Bundle.  This is one that was on my list of “must haves” from the moment I first saw it.  I used it and CASEd a card in the catalog.  I used a few different items and colors, but…it’s definitely a CASE.  Take a look-see:

 

I played along with two challenges on this one.  The first, a theme challenge, was from The Paper Players.

And this card also fits nicely with the Just Us Girls Word Week Challenge.

One thing that I did with this card, that I don’t do a lot of, was emboss the actual card front.  I used a Crumb Cake card base and then embossed the front panel in the new Layered Leaves Dynamic TIEF.  This was another of the “oh my gosh, I MUST have that NOW” goodies!

I love love love this folder – even the de-bossed side looks good!

For my art/sentiment, I cut a square of Very Vanilla using the largest square Stitched Shapes Framelits die.  Then I stamped the sentiment from the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set in Tranquil Tide ink.  I surrounded the sentiment with the lovely little clusters of flowers image in Peekaboo Peach.

I built my bouquet using the stamped flowers in Marina Mist, Daffodil Delight, Berry Burst and Powder Pink (on Very Vanilla card stock), cutting them with their matching dies in the Bouquet Bunch Framelits.  The stem cluster is cut from a piece of Pear Pizzazz card stock, and the two…leaves?…are in Very Vanilla.

I used Liquid Glue to assemble the bouquet and then stamped a wrapper in Crumb Cake, cut it with its die, and adhered it with Liquid Glue, too.

I wrapped some Linen Thread around the bouquet, securing it in the back with a Glue Dot.

To assemble the card, I first adhered a length of 5/8″ Burlap Ribbon directly to the card front with Liquid Glue.  Then I cut a scalloped square of Tranquil Tide, using my Squares Layering Framelits, to mat my sentiment panel.  I popped the stacked panel over the Ribbon with Stampin’ Dimensionals and then popped my assembled bouquet over that with more Dimensionals.

I added a couple of finishing touches – a double-strand bow of Linen Thread and some flower centers using a Marina Mist heart Enamel Shape and some Glitter Enamel Dots in Dapper Denim and Berry Burst.  And that was it for the card front.

On the inside, I stamped some more of the flower clusters from the Beautiful Bouquet set in Peekaboo Peach on a Very Vanilla panel.

I SNAILd the panel to a Tranquil Tide mat and into my card base, and the card was done!

I used a Very Vanilla Medium Envelope and stamped more of the Beautiful Bouquet flowers across the front…

…and some Powder Pink and Berry Burst flowers on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  There’s so much to love in this Beautiful Bouquet bundle – I think you’re going to see a lot of projects using it.  And the Layered Leaves Dynamic TIEF.  Are you kidding me??  It’s spectacular!!  I hope you like – and are busily planning your next order to include these wondrous new goodies!

Finn-Fan Fix…

Finn got a little tired of being all mature and noble.

So he went swimming.

After he convinced me to throw the bumper!

Which he ran after and picked up, then made a beeline for the pond.

No – he wasn’t bringing it back to me.  Nuh-uh.  He was teasing me!!

He’d get close to the shore and then spin away and go for more swimming!

I fooled him, though.  I got back in the golf cart and drank my coffee.

So there!

Stampin’ Up! Label Me Lovely Florals Birthday Card

Hey, y’all!  It’s the weekend!  My last weekend home for a while.  This time next week, I’ll be on my way to Florida.  For a couple of months!  

Got a lot to get done between now and then, on top of still working every day.  But today, I’m headed to get my pre-trip hair cut (got to last me until I get home again!) and make a last trip to Costco.  There are no Costco’s in Ft. Walton Beach.  Have to drive about 2 hours to get to one.  Can you imagine??  

And when I get home, I have this to tackle….

Yep – it’s Share Cutting Weekend!!  And weeknight….and early mornings…. got to get them all chopped up and in the mail to y’all!! 🙂

Should have been working on that this afternoon – but instead, I was making a card.  Cuz that’s what I really wanted to do!  I used my Label Me Pretty stamp set and a little of the pretty Fresh Florals DSP in Powder Pink.  Take a look-see:

 

My layout was inspired – although I didn’t do a square card – by this week’s Mojo Monday sketch.

And the color scheme – one of my favorites! – is from the Color Throwdown.

I started with a Powder Pink floral paper from the new Fresh Florals DSP and matted it on Night of Navy (yes, I know – it looks like Black in the picture, but…it’s not!).

The next layer is a piece of Whisper White that I embossed in the Petal Burst TIEF and SNAILd – with the DE-bossed side up – on Night of Navy and then SNAILd to the card front.

For the next strip, I used the other side of the first Fresh Florals DSP paper, SNAILing it to Night of Navy mat and then to the card front.

I wrapped a length of Powder Pink 1/2″ Finely Woven Ribbon around the whole thing, securing it in the back with some scotch tape.

My sentiment, from the new Label Me Pretty stamp set, is heat embossed in Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder on a piece of Whisper White and cut out with an oval Stitched Shapes Framelit.  I SNAILd it to a scalloped-edge oval that I’d cut with an Ovals Layering Framelit.  I lightly colored the flowers in the design with Powder Pink ink that I picked up from the lid of my ink pad with a Blender Pen.

I popped the finished sentiment over the ribbon with some Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Finally, I tied a bow with some more of the Powder Pink 1/2″ Finely Woven Ribbon and attached it with a Glue Dot – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I enlisted the help of a pretty flower image from the Touches of Texture stamp set, stamping it in Powder Pink in the middle of a Whisper White panel.  When it was completely dry, I heat embossed a single-word-sentimet from… the Beautiful You stamp set…in gold.

I SNAILd the panel to a Night of Navy 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 a few more Touches of Texture flowers in Powder Pink across the front…

…and then I added some more of the Powder Pink Fresh Florals DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Isn’t that Label Me Pretty image such a pretty floral sentiment?  Maybe that’s why SU! put “Pretty” in the name!?!  And I think it works perfectly in embossed gold with the Night of Navy and the Fresh Florals DSP!  Hope you like!

Don’t miss out on my Catalog Launch Ordering Special.  You know you’re going to buy all the goodies anyway – might as well get some extra bonus points and free shipping while you’re at it!

Finn-Fan Fix…

Ladies and Gentlemen (assuming there’s at least one gentleman out there!!) – may I introduce….

Michael “Finn” Phelps!!

Yes.  That’s him.  Finn Phelps!

He figured out today why they call it “dog paddling!”

He ended up swimming sort of by accident and then….realized…it was fun!

So he kept going back out and swimming around and around!  And then he’d fly out of the pond to come tell me how much fun swimming is.

And then…back to the pond!

Michael Phelps has the fly.  Finn has the paddle.

And…can Michael bring a stick back in his mouth?

Well, okay.  Probably.  He’s a heckuva swimmer.

But he’s not nearly as cute as my little paddler!!
