Stampin’ Up! It Starts with Art Thanks!

Happy Happy Hawwwmp Day!  Hope all is right and well in your world – and that you’re safe and healthy!

Speaking of COVID-19, do take a minute to check out the Stampin’ Up! Give-Back digital stamp set called Share Sunshine!  100% of the proceeds will go to one of two organizations supporting the fight.  Scroll on down for the deets and a link to download the FIFTEEN pages of cool sentiments!!

My card today uses a few retiring goodies that you need to snap up while you still can – starting with the It Starts With Art stamp set, the matching Arts & Crafts Dies and the fun Follow Your Art DSP.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from this week’s CAS(E) This Sketch challenge.

I started with two panels of the Follow Your Art DSP – both cut the same size as the card front (4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″) – and I adhered one to the front of a Pacific Point card base and the second on the inside, using Liquid Glue.

I used the Ornate Layers Dies to cut a Whisper White panel and then placed it in my Stamparatus.  I stamped the sentiment from It Starts With Art in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.

Then I popped the panel onto a Calypso Coral “mat” with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the three pens/markers in Tuxedo Black on Whisper White and colored them with my Bermuda Bay, Calypso Coral and Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends Combos.  Then I cut them with the coordinating die in the Arts & Crafts Die Set.

I popped the die cut pens and markers onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The final piece is a tiny heart trinket from the Follow Your Art Embellishment Kit, adhered in the corner with a Glue Dot.  The kit (which is on SALE for just $6.60!) also includes some Linen Thread in Bermuda Bay and Calypso Coral.  I took a double length of the Bermuda Bay and tied a bow, then adhered it to the heart trinket with a Glue Dot.

I adhered the whole thing to the card front with Liquid Glue and that was it for the card front!

On the inside, I stamped a sentiment from the Retiring Varied Vases stamp set in Tuxedo Black on a Whisper White panel.  Across the bottom, I stamped the ink bottles from It Starts With Art in Tuxedo Black and colored them with the Bermuda Bay, Calypso Coral and Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends Combos.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Calypso Coral mat and into the card base and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more ink bottles on the front…

…and a little Follow Your Art DSP on the envelope flap!

Et Voila!  Isn’t this just the perfect group of goodies for us as crafters!??  I think It Starts With Art is very aptly named – and it’s so cool that the Arts & Crafts Dies (on sale for $11.60!) help us cut out so many of the images to use, don’t you?!  Finally – the Follow Your Art DSP is bright and cheery and fun.  And on a really good sale – just $4.60 for the pack!!  I hope you like – and will get them soon.  Remember, only the stamp set is guaranteed to be around thru the end of the catalog!  All the other items are only available while supplies last!

If you want to recreate this card – all the Stampin’ Up! products you need are listed down below along with the card cuts!

I snapped this picture the other evening of my silly and sweet dog.  He crawls under that chair and uses his hand to pull and squiggle himself into JUST the right position.

Guess this is it!

Yeah.  Beyond cute! 😉

Finn Fan Fix


On my video on Saturday night, I mentioned that I’d made a big batch of homemade granola, using a yumm-o sounding recipe my mom sent.

And – I got requests to share, so… here ’tis!

This is a Vermont Country Store recipe – they sent it to my mom in an e-mail….

How does this relate to Finn?

Food.  Finn.  Hello?

We makin’ granola for us, Mom??

I love granola.

What’s granola, again??

It’s called Lumberjack Granola – I’ll give you the recipe as written and then my substitutes/changes. 🙂

Ingredients

8 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
1 cup hulled sunflower seeds
1 cup hulled pumpkin seeds
2 cups walnuts
1 cup maple syrup
1 cup golden raisins
2 cups almonds
1 cup canola or olive oil
1 cup dried cranberries
2 cups pecans
1 Tablespoon coarse sea salt
1 cup shredded coconut

Preparation

Preheat oven to 325 degrees

In a large stainless-steel bowl, combine the oats, sunflower and pumpkin seeds walnuts, almonds and pecans.  Stir with a large wooden spoon (or clean hands) to combine.

Transfer about 4 cups of the mixture to a food processor fitted with the steel blade and pulse to coarsely chop, but do not make the pieces too small.  (This is just to slightly reduce the size of chunks to bit-size and you can skip this step if you prefer really chunky granola.)  Transfer the chopped oat mixture to a second large stainless-steel bowl.  Repeats until you have coarsely chopped the whole batch – again, not too fine.

Toss the oat mixture with the salt.  Pour the maple syrup and the oil over the top and stir with a wooden spoon or clean hands to completely combine the liquids with the oat mixture.  It will look just slightly moist.

Spread the granola evenly over the two shallow roasting pans or rimmed baking sheets in a single layer, about 1″ deep.  You may need to do this in two batches.  Bake, stirring every 15 min or so to keep the granola from burning and turning the pans to bake evenly.  Toast to a golden brown, about 45 minutes.  Remove from the pan and transfer back to one of the large bowls.

Toss will still warm with the raisins, cranberries and coconut. Let cool before packing into large mason jars to keep up to 2 months.

My changes

  1. I didn’t use the dried cranberries – they’re not our fave so…substituted dried dates.  About 10 ounces worth.
  2. Used canola oil – and only about 1/2 cup.
  3. Didn’t use walnuts – really don’t care for them.  So used extra pecans.  I couldn’t really tell you how many pecans I used.  At least 2 cups – plus…however many looked about right.
  4. Used slivered almonds cuz that’s what I had in the freezer.
  5. Didn’t use sunflower seeds.  No reason why – just didn’t have them and didn’t buy any more.
  6. My pumpkin seeds were roasted and salted.  Worked great.
  7. Do NOT skip the COARSE Sea Salt.  I had fine sea salt on hand, but bought some coarse for this.  That little tiny crunch of salt is perfect!!
  8. Try to use real maple syrup.  Try not to lick the syrup off the bottle.  Or…be sure no one is watching if you do!

Get ready to love this granola. And – if you’re of a mind – it would be awesome in trail mix form – add m&m’s or chocolate chips when the mix is….almost completely cool.  We didn’t do that.  Wanted to – but…we’re using as cereal, so…

We can add the chips into our cereal bowl on the down-low!

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Six Ladybugs and a Flower for The Paper Players

Happy Sunday, y’all!  Hope your weekend is going well.  I see a lot of posts in my Facebook feed from friends who are under a ton of snow.  Hopefully you’re all safe and warm! 😉  We finally have some of that yellow-orange stuff from that big yellow ball in the sky.  No telling how long it will stick around – but…it’s not doing much for the temperature, I have to say.  On the other hand, we CAN see ALL the ground with no WHITE stuff.  So…my complaining is tempered by gratitude for that, at least!

I’ve got another fun challenge for you today from the Paper Players – I hope that you’ll come on over and play!  It’s a cool sketch, as you’ll see in a second.

If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video, I appreciate you spending some of your weekend with me!  If not, but you’d like to see the replay on YouTube…here ’tis!

I decided to pull the sweet Little Ladybug set out for this one, along with its coordinating Ladybug Dies – which you’ll be able to pick up on 4 Feb.  Take a look-see:

Finn Fan Fix


This is a non-Finny Finn Fan Fix!

This is a seedling update!

So…I planted two BioDomes last week – veggies and flowers.

I placed the two BioDomes under the grow light.

16 hours on.  8 hours off.

And then – carefully peeeeered into the domes every day.

Every day….nothing.

Not surprising – a watched seed never grows.

Or…something like that! LOL

But then.  THEN!  Yesterday…..lookee lookee!!

See ’em?!? Plants!  Little plants sticking their little plant-heads up!

According to my careful planting chart – those are marigolds.  Which I’m growing to plant in and among my Ancho Magnifico Peppers and my tomatoes.

Happy dance happy dance!

See?  Even Finny is thrilled beyond measure!

Stampin’ Up! Paper Pumpkin News and….a little Blog Candy! :)

Morning, y’all!  Hope your week is successfully winding down!  Mine is.  I mean…I think it is?  I am really having trouble keeping track of the days.  I keep thinking it’s the weekend – and being really surprised when there’s a lot of traffic on the road at 4 in the afternoon.  I’m actually kind of surprised at how disorienting NOT working is – guess I figured that, since I worked at home for so many years…it would feel the the same.  It’s totally not! 😉

So – the topic for today is Paper Pumpkin – and…Blog Candy!  Will that be okay?

I got my Gift of Fall Paper Pumpkin and then I bought the cool Add-on, too.  And I saw so many folks talking about how wonderful it is!  So…I went to open it up and put it all together.  And then…I thought…why don’t you save it – and give it away?? 🙂

That seemed like a really splendid idea – so…that’s what I’m doing!

I’m giving away a Gift of Fall Paper Pumpkin…check it out right here in the Unboxing Video…

…and an add-on bundle (so the winner can make cards, too!).

But – before we get to the How-Can-I-Win-This-Awesome-Candy part of the program – let’s take a little look at what’s coming in September from Paper Pumpkin!  It’s a “hand”-made Halloween Kit that is going to be a chillingly good time!

Image may contain: text

This one will let you whip up 20 Halloween-themed, food safe-treat boxes – in Basic Black, Gorgeous Grape, Pumpkin Pie and Whisper White!  Sounds pretty fun to me!  And – who knows?  Maybe there’ll even be an add-on bundle like this month!  Fingers crossed! 🙂

Here’s what you need to do to get the September Kit.

Get.  Signed.  Up.  By 10 Sept!  Easy peasy.

If you are NOT an ACTIVE Paper Pumpkin Subscriber…

You can sign up for a subscription where you’re billed monthly for your kit – click here to get started.  

Or you can…do a Prepaid Subscription!  To see the options for prepaid subscriptions in my online store, click here.

So – here’s the thing.  You MUST be an ACTIVE Paper Pumpkin Subscriber by 10 September to get this kit!!  If you subscribe AFTER 10 September – you are going to get the October kit!  Make sense? 🙂

Okay – I expect to see y’all signing up right away – cuz that looks like a fun one for Halloween!!

Now – on to the candy!  The Blog Candy, that is!

To enter to win this Gift Of Fall kit and coordinating Add-on Bundle, all you need to do is leave a comment on this blog post by 5pm Eastern Time on Tuesday, 27 Aug 19 and tell me your favorite new BUNDLE in the 2019 Holiday Catalog!  There are TWENTY-FIVE bundles in this catalog – which one do YOU love the most!?!

Just a note –  I have comment moderation turned on so it may take me a few minutes to see and approve your comment.  Don’t worry if it doesn’t show up right away, it’ll be there just as soon as I see it.  🙂

The winners will be chosen by the random number generator from all of the comments received and I’ll announce the winners on my blog on Wednesday, 28 Aug 19!

Please note, anyone is welcome to leave me a comment but per the Demonstrator rules from Stampin’ Up!, I can only ship Stampin’ Up! merchandise to addresses within the United States.  Thanks for your understanding.  Good luck!!

Have a great Friday, y’all! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Be Mine Valentine Paper Pumpkin and…some Blog Candy!

Mornin’, y’all!  By the time you get this, I’ll be at the airport.  Hopefully on the INSIDE of security and sitting working on the computer at the gate.  They’re telling folks to be 3 hours early – both in Atlanta AND Baltimore.  So… that’s fun!  😉  Hopefully they’re just being Nervous Nellie’s.  Debbie Downers.  Worried Wanda’s.  Fashed Frieda’s!

Keep your fingers crossed for me!

So today – I wanted to share a quick sneak peek at the January Paper Pumpkin kit!  It’s super cute and made 24 fun little treat holders in two designs.  It coordinates perfectly with the Animal Expedition Suite in the Annual Catalog, too!
