Stampin’ Up! Blossoms, Hearts and Sunshine Sayings Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop


Happy Thursday, y’all – and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!  It’s sketch week and I know our talented ladies will come up with some awesome projects for you so,  I hope you’ll take a few minutes to browse thru all our blogs today! 🙂

Here’s the sketch we’re all playing with….

I decided to go kind of Old-School – meaning I used mostly products from the Annual Catalog.  More specifically, I went back to one of my favorite sets – the Grateful Bunch stamp set and matching Blossom Bunch Punch.  And I snagged a cute sentiment (I like the font!) from the Sunshine Sayings stamp set.  Take a look-see:

I started by double matting a piece of the Sending Love DSP Stack paper – first on Daffodil Delight and then on Real Red.  Then I wrapped a length of Real Red 3/8″ Striped Satin Ribbon around the panel and secured it in the back with scotch tape.

Next up, I cut a Real Red heart with a die from the Sweet & Sassy Framelits, and embossed it in the Hearts TIEF.  Using a Glue Dot, I wrapped a couple three loops of Crushed Curry Baker’s Twine onto the card front, then popped the heart on top (DE-bossed side up!) with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I used the triple-flower image stamp in the Grateful Bunch stamp set to make several Daffodil Delight flowers on Whisper White, then punched them out with the Blossom Bunch Punch.  I could have used them like that, but I wanted them to look even more daisy-ish. so I went ahead and fussy cut them  – which eliminated the white edge.  Then I used my Bone Folder to gently curl the tips of the petals.

I colored the centers of the large and small flowers with my Real Red Stampin’ Write Marker, then added a Daffodil Delight Enamel Shape.

The sentiment, from the Sunshine Sayings stamp set, is stamped in Real Red on a piece of Whisper White and cut into a banner with my Paper Snips.  I edged it with the Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Write Marker and adhered it to the heart with Liquid Glue.

Finally, I spread my little daisies all around the heart and sentiment with Liquid Glue, and that was it for the card front!

On the inside, I stamped some more Daffodil Delight Grateful Bunch flowers in the corner of a Whisper White panel, and colored their centers with the Real Red Marker.

I double matted the panel on Daffodil Delight and Real Red, and SNAILd it into my Whisper White card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more of the Grateful Bunch flowers on the front…

…and some of the Sending Love DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I love how the elements from the different stamp and framelits sets came together with the new Sending Love DSP to create a sunshine-y clean and layered birthday card!  Hope you like! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Grateful Bunch of Blossoms for the Happy Stampers Blog Hop

Mornin’, y’all –  welcome to another edition of the Happy Stampers Blog Hop.  We had a sketch to play with this week and it’ll be interesting to see what everyone comes up with!  I hope you’ll take a minute to browse all the projects brought to you by the ladies-who-hop!

Here’s the sketch…

I recently got the Bunch of Blossoms bundle –  with the stamp set and the Blossom Builder punch – and I wanted to give it a go.  And, I saw a fun technique over on Splitcoaststampers, called Watercolor Lifting.  So – I figured I’d combine my new bundle and a new (to me!) technique.  Take a look-see:

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! Grateful Bunch and Petite Pairs Any Occasion card

Good morning! By the time you read this, I should be (all things being equal!) sitting on an airplane with Amy Koenders. Getting ready to wing our way to Salt Lake City. OnStage, baby!

Now, for those of you who don’t know me – I’m not really a “whoo-hoo”-er. I’ve been known to be a “WHOOP!”-er – but only at horse shows and only when my fave gaited Saddlebred is passing in front of me and I’m showing my support.

I. Don’t. Whoo-hoo. At least not “for real” – I might do it in jest…but that’s it!

Miss Amy said a scary thing the other day while we were on a Google Hangout meeting. It had to do with her plan to whoo-hoo on the plane.

A Lot.


I’m very much hoping she was joshin’ me! Otherwise, I’ll be obligated to disavow her. At least for the duration of the flight! Do lots of sleeping or pretending to sleep. Put my headphones in – hopefully there’s a good movie…

We’ll see what happens!

Any-hooch. Let’s talk about my card for today, shall we? 🙂

I went back to my favorite bundle in the Occasions catalog – the Grateful Bunch bundle. I played with some watercoloring and punching and and some Timeless Textures and then I added a sentiment from Petite Pairs. Fair warning….put yer shades on and take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Grateful Bunch Totally Awesome!

Good morning, y’all – hope that you fared okay with the weather these past couple of days – it’s been pretty wild in the South.  We got lucky – nuthin’ but some lightning and a bit of rain.  The horses spent the night tucked up in their stalls with their fans keeping the bugs off – ahh, the life of Riley for them, huh? 🙂


So, I’ve got a quick card to share with you today, that uses my oh-so-fave Grateful Bunch stamp set and its matching punch – Blossom Bunch.  Which I got – and so can you! – as a 15% off bundle!  And Timeless Textures – again!  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! Grateful Bunch on Wildflower Fields!

Good morning!  I hope that you’re having as nice a weekend as I am!  The weather is drop-dead gorgeous – we’re talking shirt sleeves and birds singing and ducks paddling in the pond.  And today (Saturday – as I type this!) isn’t even the warm day!  To be honest, I’m happy where it is – for me, it could stay at this temperature 24/7/365 and I’d be GTG!

Wayne and I spent some time outside building my new raised Square Foot Gardens!  Well, while I’m making a card, and posting it and getting dinner ready, he’s still out there.  I can hear the grinder and the welder sparking!

Wayne Welding - Stamps-N-Lingers

Yea, I know.  A man welding  – especially in those sexy green welding “sleeves”! – is hot!  Many many years ago, we were working together on a steel structure.  I thought it was so “cool” how the weld spark looked in the night – and I was…well, head over heels, so…I took lots of pictures.  I thought I was being so careful not to look right at the spark.  Well, at 2 am I discovered I hadn’t been so careful!  Safety tip – pictures of welding at night can get you in trouble.  Also, looking away from the spark, but at a metal building where the reflection is will also get you in trouble!  I’d burned my eyes enough to need to go to the doc in the morning.  Wayne told me to put raw potatoes on them.

Uhm.  No – that didn’t really help! 😉

Anywho – here’s what he’s working on today!

Flower Bed - Stamps-N-Lingers

That’s the first bed all ready to fill and plant!  That means it’s for sure spring!! Can’t wait to see them full of tomatoes and peppers and turnips and kale…. 🙂

Well, on to the real reason you dropped in, yes?  Being that it’s feeling all spring-y today, I was feeling in the mood for flowers.  And butterflies.

I ended up with flowers – not the Rose Wonder flower I’d pulled out to use, but the pretty Grateful Bunch flowers (my faves!).  And I never did add a butterfly….take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Mary Had a Little Easter Lamb for the Happy Stampers Blog Hop


Good morning, y’all – it’s Thursday and that means it’s Happy Stampers Blog Hop Day!  We’ve got a fun sketch challenge to work with today.

But first – I know you’re all dying for an update on Katy!  She came home today – shot out of the carrier like she’d been….well…shot out of the carrier.  I figured we wouldn’t see her again until May!  But, mere moments later, she came to the kitchen for a big drink of water and within about 30 minutes…..

Katy post-op

…I was graced with her sleepy self on my lap!  I am forgiven!! 🙂  She’s eating well – and I was even able to get her first dose of antibiotic in her.  Greenies Pill Pockets.  Who knew?  I never thought she’d like them empty, let alone stuffed with a giant pill!  But she mucked it right down.  So… one down.  Fingers crossed that she takes the bait 27 more times!

Anywho – on with the blog hop!  Here’s the sketch that we’re all going to be working with today – please take a little time when you’re done here to check out all the projects from my fellow Happy Stampers!


I decided to make a spring-y card in honor of the pretty weather we’ve been having.  I used the cute new Occasions stamp called Easter Lamb, and a sentiment from the Circle of Spring stamp set, from the Annual Catalog.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Watercolor Grateful Bunch

Mornin’, y’all!  It’s Saturday and I’ve got a cute little card to share with you today.  I was late getting started making a card so I needed something quick.  I’d had this little card in my head for a minute, so it seemed like a great time to implement it!

Quick.  Fast.  Easy.  Kind of the theme for today.  Along those lines – if you heard of an appliance that could make a dish in about an hour – one that usually takes 24 hours, you’d think that was a good deal, right?  Well, I’ve been hearing that electric pressure cookers could do just that.  Here in the Deatherage household, we eat a lot of beans.  Pinto Beans and Red Beans (and rice), specifically.  And those require me to think about them the night before, put the beans on to soak overnight and then get them in the crock pot first thing in the morning.

Enter….the Electric Pressure Cooker.  I succumbed to a QVC commercial and got one delivered.  Upon reading the included cook-book, lo and behold….a recipe for black beans.  30 minutes.  And the recipe said “1 pound dry black beans”.  No mention of soaking.  I was ecstatic.  So, I put my pintos on, using the called for amount of liquid.  Set for 30 min.

Thirty minutes later – crunchy beans.

Reset for another 30 minutes.

Still.  Crunchy.

30 more minutes.

Finally ended up with just-about-right-beans after 1 hour and 45 minutes of cooking.  A pretty significant improvement over 24 hours, sure.  But…worth the amount of real estate it takes up?  Maybe not.  So….it’s probably going to be on it’s way back to QVC. 😉

This little card, though – you really could get it done in 30 minutes!!  Just do a little quick watercolor, add a Grateful Bunch Flower and a sentiment from Happy Pants.  And you’ve got a little note card all ready to go.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Rose Wonder Joins Grateful Bunch

It’s Friday again!  Whoo-hoo! I’m almost back to being “on” Eastern time – which is good for the morning, but bad for my evening stamping sessions!  When I’m still on Mountain or Pacific time, I get a lot done in the evening!  Not so much when the old bod realizes where it is!! 🙂

Thanks to all who came by yesterday for the Happy Stampers Blog Hop – it means a lot to all of us to have you see what we put together for you each week!

Today’s share is the last card I made in Arizona.  I combined flowers and flowers and flowers – all from the fun Grateful Bunch bundle with a couple of great sentiments from Rose Wonder.  This one went out to my friend who’s fighting a battle with cancer.  I purposely made it a little over the top – cheery and warm.  I wanted the flowers to be abundant – to look like a cottage garden overflowing with beautiful blooms.  Take a look-see:
