Stampin’ Up! Flourishing Phrases and Flowers for the Happy Stampers Blog Hop

Mornin’, y’all –  welcome to another edition of the Happy Stampers Blog Hop.  I’m glad you were able to stop by and appreciate you spending a little bit of your day with us.  Today we all worked a color sketch and I’m excited (and hope you are, too! 🙂 ) to see what all the ladies-who-hop have come up with as they work their crafty magic on this classic color combo:

Pretty, huh?  Gave us all a chance to play with the new Copper embellishments….Metallic Thread, Embossing Powder….Washi Tape.

I decided to play with the Flourishing Phrases stamp set – it’s got so many great sentiments and, of course, the beautiful….well, flourish!  I added some Botanical Blooms and the matching Botanical Builder flowers.  And as a starting touch….I used the Detailed Floral Thinlits.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Botanicals One Big Meaning Thanks!

Update on 19 April:  I just found out that this card was picked as an Artist Pick at Hand Stamped Sentiments!  Many thanks to the talented ladies at HSS for picking my card out of all the beautiful ones submitted.  And congrats to all the picks.  You can see the other ladies’ cards here.

Hey, ya’ll – it’s Friday, which means that when you read this, I’ll still be asleep! Cuz of how I’m in Utah! At OnStage! I’m typing this on Thursday morning – I know that tonight, after the first session this afternoon – I’m going to be having pizza with a bunch of other SU! demos – and then collapsing in bed with a little light reading…

The 2016-2017 Annual Catalog!!! I’ll be flipping thru and marking everything I want (might be easier and take lots less ink to mark the things I don’t want!) and getting my pre-order in! I’ll probably even do the 2-day shipping – so I can start making projects and giving y’all a peek next week! (Update since I drafted this post on Thursday morning:  You’re seriously seriously SERIOUSLY going to love what’s in this new catalog.  I can’t start sharing any clues until Monday evening – but….trust me on this.  You need this new catalog as soon as you can get your hands on it!!)

Uh-oh…..I feel a Whooo-hoooo!! coming on! Yikes! 🙂 Update:  I did, in fact, “whoooo” a few times.  Don’t judge.  You would have, too. 😉

I wanted to share a couple more pics with y’all from our day on Wednesday. The home office is one of the prettiest buildings I’ve seen. Lots of wood paneling and crown molding. And the center atrium…..

We got a birds-eye view of the distribution canter – where everything in all our orders is “picked” and packed and shipped.  Pretty impressive pick-line!  And Stampin’ Up! goodies as far as the eye can see!

SU! Warehouse

Amy and I both wished for just 5 minutes on the pick line – if you catch my drift!! 😉

Before we got done, we wandered thru the hall of the convention center.  This is how it looked on Wednesday afternoon…..


I suspect it’ll look a lot different when we get there this afternoon! 🙂  Update:  I was right:


So – enough about OnStage for a second!  I’ll share more haps with you tomorrow, I promise.

My card for today is another thank you  – using the super One Big Meaning stamp set in the Annual Catalog.  I paired that with some clean Botanical Builder Flowers and some Color Me Irresistible DSP.  Take a look-see:

As usual, my layout didn’t come out of my own brain – I used the design inspiration from the TGIF Challenges #50: Continue reading

Stampin’ Up! Botanical Builder Hello

Hey, y’all – welcome back.  Glad that you could stop by on this Wednesday – Hawp Day!  I have a confession to make to you.  Yesterday I told you that I pretty much never run out of Pearl Basic Jewels.  That was sort of a fib.  I didn’t realize it was a fib until I went to make today’s card.  When I got to the point where I needed to find my flower centers – they were pretty much begging to have Pearls in them! – I realized just how dire my circumstances had become.

Oh, I knew my supply was low – especially in the area of the tiniest of the pearls in a pack.  I have none of those left.  Nary a one!  I have a smattering of medium sized ones and hooked-together straight strip ones.  And tons of giant ones – cuz of how I seldom use that size.

So Monday – when I ordered the fringe scissors – when they were on sale – I grabbed a couple of Pearl Basic Jewel packs.  Yes, of course I did, since they went on sale the very next day! 🙁  Not to say I won’t put in another order – I need those teeny tiny seed pearls! But, I hate missing a sale.  I mean – I’m perfectly willing to spend $20 on pearl packs just cuz I can save $1.25 a pack.  Aren’t you? 😉

Anywho – I decided to use the large pearls on this card – I hope they don’t look too awfully clunky to you!  I used one of the new Annual Catalog DSPs – well, it was new last summer, anyway! – the Bohemian DSP.  And I combined it with some flowers from the Botanical Builder Framelits and a greeting from the Greetings Thinlits.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Botanical Fun Fold Card for the Happy Stampers Blog Hop


Good morning, y’all – it’s Thursday and that means it’s Happy Stampers Blog Hop Day!  We’re working on a color challenge, but first…

This week we’re doing something a little different with our Happy Stampers hop.  As many of you may have noticed, our hop founder, Sandi MacIver, hasn’t been able to join us for the last few weeks.  She’s been dealing with some significant health issues and she’s having surgery today to start her treatment.  We wanted to let Sandi know that we’re thinking about her, so we’ve all created a card, using this week’s challenge, that will send a little hug her way.  We’re looking forward to having Sandi join us again soon!  Please help us send lots of positive thoughts to her up in Canada, would you? 🙂

So – here’s what we all used as a starting point for our cards for Sandi this week….


I saw a fun-fold card out on Pinterest (Debbie Henderson at Debbie’s Designs), and I decided to give it a try!  And – it’s pretty darned easy.  This week’s color combo pretty much screamed Botanical Builder to me, so that’s the direction I went.  I added an encouraging sentiment from Something To Say.  Take a look-see:
