Stampin’ Up! Hello You Succulent Blooms for the Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop!


Good morning, y’all – welcome to the Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop! This week we’re heralding the arrival of Spring.  I know that a bunch of you are under the white stuff and it’s cold here – but Spring is surely just around the corner!  I know all our ladies will have some fantastic spring-y projects for you today, so I hope you’ll spend some time scrolling thru all their offerings.

I used the Succulent Framelits and the Hello You Thinlits, with some Blooms & Bliss DSP to make my card.  And – this is kinda cool…there’s no stamping in the whole card!! Take a look-see:


I played along with a couple of challenges.  The first helped me with the layout and was from the CASE This Sketch challenge.


And, I also played along with the CAS-ual Fridays challenge…


I borrowed a little design element from Mary Fish’s pretty card from the other day.  You can check that one out right here!

So – I started with a plain piece of Whisper White card stock for the card front, and I added a diagonal piece of Blooms & Bliss DSP across the bottom.  Then I cut a second – slightly darker – piece of the same DSP to make the darker portion (to work with the sketch).  

Then I SNAILd the whole panel to a Mint Macaron mat and popped it on my Island Indigo card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Yes, I know – I’ve said in my videos that I don’t put the card front on until I’ve done the inside.  But – in this case – I needed to, in order to accommodate the “off the edge” elements of the card!

I was nervous, I’m not gonna lie! 😉


I wrapped a piece of Mint Macaron 3/8″ Sheer Linen Ribbon around the “seam” I’d created, securing it in the back with scotch tape.

My sentiment is cut using the Hello You Thinlits.  I cut it three times – once in Mint Macaron and twice in Island Indigo – then I used little dabs of Liquid Glue to adhere them in a stack.  Then I adhered the whole thing to the card front with more Liquid Glue.  There’s some little teensy pieces of Stampin’ Dimensionals on the very ends of the word (where they “fall” off the edge of the card front and needed some support).

For my flowers….I cut three Stitched Shaped circles from Whisper White card stock.  In the middle of each, I used  the small “flower”-looking die in the Succulent Framelits set to cut a “negative” space.  Next, I cut three scalloped edge circles, using the Circles Layering Framelits, from So Saffron paper in the Subtles DSP Stack.


I adhered the circles together and then used Liquid Glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals to stick them on the card front.

I added the cut out Succulent “flowers” – plus a few extra that I cut out, using Liquid Glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Then I added some Daffodil Delight, So Saffron and Island Indigo Enamel shapes to the flower centers and the card front was done!


On the inside, I cut a Succulent Framelits flower from the corner of a Whisper White panel.  Behind it, I added a little square of So Saffron Subtles DSP with a little Liquid Glue.  I also cut a couple more Succulent Framelits flowers and added them as well.  Then I gave them each an Enamel Shapes center!


I adhered the panel to a Mint Macaron mat and into the Island Indigo card base and that was it for the card.

My Whisper White Envelope got some of the Succulent Framelits flowers, cut from So Saffron DSP, on the front. I used Liquid Glue and trimmed the excess with my Paper Snips…


…then I added some more of the So Saffron DSP to the envelope flap.


Et Voila!  Does it say “Spring” to you?  It does to me!  I love the negative space Succulent “flowers” in the crisp Whisper White Stitched Shapes circles.  Hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! May Flowers One Big Meaning Thanks – and the Blog Candy Winner!

Happy Hawwmp Day, y’all!  Hope it’s going well so far this week.  My meeting has been very productive and well worth the effort it took to get out here (she admits grudgingly….).  Today I’ll be headed back to the airport and on the way home in the morning!

My card for today is a spring-y, flowered-y thank you card, using the fun Falling Flowers stamp set and matching May Flowers Framelits and one of my favorite sentiment stamp sets:  One Big Meaning!  When I added the gorgeous Blooms & Bliss DSP, here’s what I came up with.  Take a look-see:

may-flowers-one-big-thanks-4-stamps-n-lingers
I used the sketch from CAS(E) This Sketch to help me with the layout.

cts-210
I started with a panel of Mint Macaron and Island Indigo flowers paper from the Blooms & Bliss DSP and SNAILd it to a Blushing Bride mat.  Using the new Mint Macaron Glimmer Paper, I cut out two sets of leaves with the May Flowers Framelits and adhered them to my card front with Liquid Glue.

The center layer is a piece of Whisper White card stock.  First I used the two leaves images in the Falling Flowers stamp set – stamping them all over the panel in Mint Macaron and Island Indigo ink.  I matted the panel on Blushing Bride, then ran the whole thing thru my Big Shot in the Petal Burst TIEF.  Then I popped that over the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

may-flowers-one-big-thanks-3-stamps-n-lingers
I cut two Mint Macaron Glimmer Paper leaves and a Blushing Bride flower with the May Flowers Framelits, then used Liquid Glue to adhere them to the middle panel.

My sentiment, from One Big Meaning, is heat embossed in Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder on a strip of Vellum card stock.  I adhered the vellum to a piece of Whisper White card stock – using tiny bits of glue from my Fine Tip Glue Pen under just the embossed words to hide the glue.  Then I used my Banner Triple Punch on both ends.

may-flowers-one-big-thanks-1-stamps-n-lingers
I used some Liquid Glue to adhere the sentiment banner and then added a tiny bow made from Whisper White Thick Bakers Twine and a Blushing Bride Enamel Shape – and that was it for the card front.

On the inside, I stamped the pretty flower from Falling Flowers in Blushing Bride on a piece of Whisper White card stock.  Then I added a sticky note mask over it and stamped a few Mint Macaron leaves.

may-flowers-one-big-thanks-5-stamps-n-lingers
I SNAILd the panel to a Blushing Bride mat and into my Island Indigo card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals, and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got a repeat of the Falling Flowers flower and leaves on the front…

…and a touch more of the Blooms & Bliss DSP on the envelope flap.

may-flowers-one-big-thanks-7-stamps-n-lingers
Et Voila!  This is such a pretty bundle of flowers and leaves – the Falling Flowers stamp set and matching May Flowers Framelits!  And I really love it with the Blooms & Bliss DSP!  Hope you like!

FINN-FAN FIX….

Heard a report that my sweet little puppy….ran a little ways into the woods yesterday and came out with…a deer leg!

Bleh….

Maybe a coyote got it?  Perhaps a hunter tossed a carcass?

I don’t know.  But…it does prove that…sweet as he is….he is….in the end…a dog wolf!

What happened to this little guy who just wanted to play in a water bowl and carry toys and sticks??

Stampin’ Up! Swan Lake Any Occasion Card!

Mornin’, y’all!  I hope this find you safe and sound after yesterday’s wild weather in so many parts of the country!  We got rain.

And more rain.

And then wind.

And rain.

Our pond overflowed the spillway.  Got some water in the basement.  But – overall, could have been much worse.

Finn’s day was messed up.  I didn’t get up as usual, cuz I felt like crap.  He went to feed with his dad in the morning, but they couldn’t go on their run cuz it was freakin’ pouring.  He did spend a little time outside playing when we had a weather break.  And we were able to give him an evening run.  But…the whole schedule was just…messed up! 😦

I parked the golf cart at the end of the walk in preparation for the last “do” on the horses.  Mr. Finn didn’t want to come in with us – the night was lovely after the rain moved out.  This is what I found when I went back to check and see if he was ready to grace us with his presence.

finn-chillin-on-the-golf-cart
Just chilllin’, Mom!  I’m good.  🙂

My card for today is a card you could give for any reason or “just because”!  It uses a new stamp set – this is my first time playing with the pretty Swan Lake set.  My friend Jari did a card the other day using the Annual Catalog Blooms & Bliss DSP – reminding me how pretty that paper is, so I used a little of it, too.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Gift of Love With Blooms & Bliss

I need a training manual for my goose.  And I may need my head examined.  Cuz I’m spending an inordinate amount of time worrying about the goose.  Is she lonely?  Is she hungry?  Would she like a cool shower?  Is the cabbage I bought just for her chopped up finely enough for her delicate schnoz?  If she likes watermelon, will she also like cantaloupe?

See?

Crazy.

She.

Is.

A.

Goose.

And a slightly goofy one, at that.

But – she’s fun.  She came to the house this afternoon and goose-guilted Wayne into going back to the barn with her and sitting on the porch while she grazed.  Always good to have your big, strong man to watch for predators while you eat, don’t you know?

IMG_4262
Then this evening, when we were 1 minute later than she thought was fittin’, she came to the barn to get us.   And walked right up to us, stood in front of the fan, and let me spray her with the water hose.  Seemed to really like it.

Then she goose-galloped after us when we took her food to the pond.

She truly cracks me up.

But I think she’s lonely…. 😦

Maybe she’d like to come in at nigh….

STOP!!!

That’s it.  I’m not worrying about the goose any more today.  Instead, I’ll share a card – which is why you came in the first place!

This one uses the pretty Host exclusive set called Gift of Love.  It’s a pretty two-step flower image with several nice sentiments in a beautiful font. I combined it with some of the pretty Blooms & Bliss DSP.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Vertical Blooms & Bliss!

Happy Friday, y’all!  And it’s the Friday before a 3-day weekend, so….yeah!!! 🙂  Do you all have plans to celebrate the birth of our great nation?  Does it include homemade ice cream??  Corn-on-the-cob?  Watermelon?!

Whatever your plans – have fun.  Enjoy your families.  But, please.  Please.  Be careful.  Pay attention to what’s going on around you.  Just sayin’.  We shouldn’t be afraid.  But we don’t have to be goofy, either.

That concludes this public safety announcement!

Shall we talk about a card, maybe – since that’s really why you stopped by?  Fair enough – let’s git it.

I used the pretty new Blooms & Bliss DSP for this one today – no particular reason other than it’s so pretty!  And I paired it up with the Vertical Greetings stamp set.  Take a look-see:
