Stampin’ Up! Perennial Birthday Hoppy Together Sneak Peek!

Mornin’, folks!  Hope your weekend is going well!

My trip this week was re-scheduled for January, so I’m not on my way to CA right now.  Do have to take a quick trip up to Kentucky at the end of the week, but that’ll be easy!

I’m still not going to do a video tonight – sorry.  I have the whole week planned out for cards – and…hadn’t planned something video-worthy.  So…I’ll be back next Sunday, as planned!

Today, though, the card I have is SO fun!  It uses one of the cutest, most fun stamp sets coming in Jan.  And it’s going to be FREE!  That’s right – this set, called Hoppy Together – will be FREE with a $50 purchase during Sale-a-Bration!  For this card, I added a sentiment from Perennial Birthday (in the Annual Catalog).  Take a look-see:

Cute, huh?

This fun layout is from this week’s Global Design Project sketch challenge.

And there’s no doubt at all that this little gem is high on my list of favorite new things!  As requested by the Paper Craft Crew Theme Challenge!

I started with a piece of Gingham Gala 6″ x 6″ DSP (coming on 3 Jan) and a same-size piece of Whisper White.  I stacked them up and, using my 1 3/4″ Circle Punch,  cut them on the right edge.  I dry fit them on another Whisper White panel that I’d matted on Shaded Spruce for the card front.

I used the adorable little froggie from Hoppy Together and stamped him in Shaded Spruce on the card front, situating him so he’d be peeking out of the “window” I’d created.

I colored him with my Light and Dark Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends.  The little bee is also from Hoppy Together – I stamped him a few times in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink around the frog.  They’re colored with my Dark Daffodil Delight Blend.  I used a Journaling Pen to add some dots as a “flight path”.

On the Whisper White panel with the 1 3/4″ hole punched in it, I stamped the big sentiment from Perennial Birthday in Shaded Spruce.  I added the butterfly and bees from Hoppy Together in Tuxedo Black.

I colored the bees with the Dark Daffodil Blend and the butterfly with my Light and Dark Mango Melody Blends and the Dark Daffodil Blend.  Then I added more “flight path” dots with the Journaling Pen.

I added the Gingham Gala and the Whisper White panels to the card front at an angle with Liquid Glue.

To make the froggie’s sign, I stamped the sentiment from Hoppy Together in Granny Apple Green on a scrap of Whisper White and fussy cut it.

I cut a little Shaded Spruce “stick” and adhered it with Liquid Glue, then added my sign.  And that was it for the card front!

On the inside, I added the same Hoppy Together froggie in Shaded Spruce on a Whisper White panel, coloring him with my Dark and Light Granny Apple Green Blends – plus my Lemon Lime Twist Stampin’ Write Marker for his belly and Shaded Spruce Marker for his spots.  I made his sign in the same way as the one on the front and this one is a bit of pun – I stamped the little bee and the “hoppy” (in Granny Apple Green).  Get it??

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Shaded Spruce mat and into my Granny Apple Green card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got some more crazy Hoppy Together bees across the front…

…and some more Lemon Lime Twist Gingham Gala DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  How could Hoppy Together NOT be one of my favorite new stamp sets?!?  I mean – it’s a-freakin’-dorable AND…uhm…FREE!!  Yes.  FREE with a $50 purchase once Sale-A-Bration starts in January!  I hope you like – and that your wish list just got a little longer!

We’ve been giving Katy tuna fish.

With oil.

And mayonnaise.

Hey – she’s like…16.  ANY calories we can get in her are GOOD calories.

And she likes it.  Especially the mayonnaise!!

And it smells WAY better than canned cat food.

Finn agrees.

It’s a hard thing standing sorta-politely back whilst the cat gets ALL THE GOOD FOOD!

So – sometimes, he gets to have the final lick on the bowl.

He makes the most of it.

Getting.  Every.  Last.  Drop.

Stampin’ Up! Varied Vases on Lace for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

 

Happy Thursday, y’all – and welcome to another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!! Today’s a color challenge, and I hope you’ll check out everyone’s projects when you’re done here!

I pulled out a favorite bundle from the Annual Catalog – it’s easy to forget about all the wonderful goodies in that catty when we’re caught up in the excitement of a new Holiday catalog!  Varied Vases, and the matching Vases Builder Punch, lend a floral flair to my Subtle TIEF-embossed panel.  And looks really lovely perched atop a Delicate Lace Edgelit die cut.  Take a look-see:

We had a great color combo this week!

Using the Delicate Lace Edgelits, I cut a piece of Pool Party card stock to create the “on Lace” portion of my card, and cut it down a bit to be thinner (top to bottom).

Next, I embossed a piece of Galvanized Metal Paper in the new Tin Tile Dynamic TIEF (these will both be available on 5 Sept with the new 2018 Holiday Catalog).  Then I punched out several shapes with the Vase Builder Punch.

I dry fit the Lace die cut and my vases to determine where my flowers should be stamped on my Whisper White card front panel.  Then I stamped the flowers from Varied Vases in Gray Granite to correspond to where the vases would end up.  To complete the flowers, I used full-strength Berry Burst for the double flowers on the ends and Lemon Lime Twist for the two middle sets.

For the “tulips” – I added the outline image in full-strength Berry Burst and then stamped the fill image in stamped-off-once Berry Burst.

With the flowers all stamped, I ran the Whisper White panel thru the Big Shot in the Subtle Dynamic TIEF and matted it on Pool Party with Liquid Glue.  Then I added the Delicate Lace die cut and wrapped some Silver & Pool Party Baker’s Twine three times around the panel, securing it in the back with Glue Dots.

I gently curled the cut vases and adhered them with Liquid Glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The Varied Vases sentiment is stamped in Berry Burst on Whisper White, punched with the Classic Label Punch and adhered with Liquid Glue.

I tied a bow from two lengths of the Silver & Pool Party Baker’s Twine and adhered it with a little Liquid Glue, added a few Pearl Basic Jewels and the card front was done!

On the inside, I cut another Delicate Lace Edgelits die from Pool Party card stock and adhered it to the bottom of a Whisper White panel.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Pool Party mat and into my Thick Whisper White card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

The front of my Whisper White Medium Envelope got a Gray Granite vase and stems and Berry Burst Flowers…

…and the envelope flap is embossed in the Tin Tile Dynamic TIEF.

Et Voila!  I think Varied Vases has to be one of our prettiest and most versatile bundles, don’t you?  And I love the Delicate Lace Edgelits – they create such beautiful accents.  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Copper Country Road Birthday

Good mornin’, y’all!  Now – it’s Tuesday and in the normal scheme of things I’d be bringing you a card for the Stamp Ink Paper Challenge.  But – this week, the challenge is Shaker Cards.

I brought nothing – as in nada, zero, zilch – to make a shaker card.  Not a bauble or bead – no Window Sheets – no Foam Adhesive strips.  Nuthin’.

So – I bowed out – but that doesn’t mean you couldn’t go play if you want!  I’ll give you the challenge badge and a link down below!  Have fun playing.

What I did make for today is a card squarely back in my wheelhouse – and it even had a weathervane (guess the stamp set?)!  I love weathervanes – we actually have 4 or 5 of them – all horse-themed.

And none actually on a roof.

These things take time! One day… 😉

The stamp set I’m talking about is, of course, the lovely new Country Road set – which was another one of those “I MUST have that right away” sets for me!  And look what happened when I vintage-i-fied it a little and added it to some Wood Textures DSP.  Take a look-see:
