Stampin’ Up! Fable Friends and First Steps for the Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop!

Good mornin’, y’all – welcome to another edition of Amy’s Inkin’ Krew team blog hop!  Each month we make projects centered around a theme – and this month our theme is Celebrate Spring!  We can interpret that any way we want – so…be sure to check and see everyone’s projects – we’ve got a bunch of talented ladies hopping with us this month!

I decided to make a card to celebrate the arrival of a tiny human – seemed like a spring-time activity to me!

Or…is that just racehorses…hmmm… 😉

To make my baby card, I pulled out the Fable Friends and First Steps stamp sets from the Occasions catalog.  And I set them atop some Buffalo Check plaid.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Glistening Snowflake on Buffalo Plaid

Well – when you get this post in your inbox, I’ll be just putting the last of my stuff in the car and getting ready to head to town to the airport.  🙁

But – on a brighter note – I’m only about 12 hours from seeing the Man!  Can’t wait to hug his wiggle-self!

Remember I won’t be on FB tonight – I land way too late to be ready in time.  I’ll be back next week!

For today, I made some more plaid from the Buffalo Check background stamp and added the large snowflake from the Snowfall Thinlits and some sentiments from the Snow Is Glistening stamp set.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Alpine Adventure in Plaid!

Good Saturday, y’all!  We’re waiting for another round of snow for the weekend and then looking for beautiful Colorado days all next week.  Whoo-hoo!

My friend from…forever?…is coming up on Monday and spending the night with us.  I met Sally when we were Girl Scout riding camp counselors (she was Bak and I was Pegasus and we still call each other those camp names!) in the Colorado mountains when we were in college.  We very very quickly became the best the best of friends.  No matter how long we’re apart – when we get together, it’s like there’s been no time passing at all.  Y’all have friends like that I hope! 🙂

A few (maybe…20?) years ago, we’d have had a “sleepover” – complete with roasted marshmallows (even if we had to roast them over an electric stove.  Yes – that’s doable!), multiple movies (like…Man From Snowy River and Star Trek), and we’d have stayed up most of the night.

These days?  I’ll have a blog post to do for Tuesday and she’s got an online meeting she has to do for her work!  Oh – and we’ll crash by 9, I have no doubt.

We’re not quite as spry as we used to be, huh? 😉

But – we’ll have a good time, there’s definitely no doubt about that! 🙂

My card for today uses a new (to me) set from the 2018 Holiday Catalog called Alpine Adventure!  I put it over some blue plaid that I created with the Buffalo Check Background.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Big Wishes and Buffalo Happy Birthday

Happy New Week and new Month, y’all!  Can you even believe it’s October?!?  Yikes – Christmas is right around the corner!

This week is World Card Making Day – on the 6th, to be exact!  And Stampin’ Up! is celebrating all week with great savings on lots of essentials (can you say…Stampin’ Dimensionals? 😉  Scroll on down for a complete listing of what all is available!

If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video – I thank you very much for spending part of your weekend with me.  And hope that you had a good time making plaid!  If you weren’t able to watch live, but would like to see some of the Plaid-A-Pa-Looza – here’s the not-quite-instant replay!

The card I’m sharing is the one that I gave y’all a glimpse of last night – it uses one of the plaids (and you can see how to make it on the video) and the Happy Birthday Thinlit die and Big Wishes stamp set to make a cool masculine birthday card.  Take a look-see: Continue reading

Stampin’ Up! Buffalo Checked Video Sneak Peek

Hey y’all!  Hope your weekend is going well.  We got the car taken care of and…test drove the new Odyssey!  Looks like Honda has bumped their navigation technology into this century so….they may keep my business when it comes time for a new ride.  I LOVE my van.  EVERYthing about it.  EXCEPT the navigation/technology – it’s like….Pong vs my MacBook!  Know what I mean!?

Tomorrow’s a big day – lots of things ending (Bonus Days coupon redemption; Timeless Tidings Project Kit orderability…).  And – a couple of things coming (Stamparatus accessories…).  Just sayin’ – 1 Oct is huge!

Anywho.

I had so much fun yesterday making plaid with the Buffalo Check background stamp that I thought it might be fun for us to play a little on our live video this evening over on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page.  Whatcha think?  Up for a Buffalo-Checked Plaid-A-Pa-Looza?!?  Take a sneaky peek!

Well – but it CAN be plaid!  And it can be a plaid background for the lovely Pleasant Pheasants stamp set and a perfect Thanksgiving sentiment.  Take a look-see!

Stampin’ Up! Buffalo Check Cross-Stitched Christmas Sneak Peek

Hey y’all – welcome to Monday and the start of another week.

Or – as I like to call it – the LAST week for me in Cali!!  I’ll be home the next time I do a Monday post.  Whooo-hooo! 🙂

If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video – I thank you for spending part of your weekend with me.  It felt good to be back in the video-saddle!  If you weren’t able to join us, but would like to see how to make today’s card, here’s the sorta-instant replay on YouTube!

The card uses several new goodies from the 2018 Holiday Catalog – that you’ll be able to get as a customer on 5 Sept.  Or…you can join the team and pick them as part of your Starter Kit – and buy the rest with your shiny new 20% discount! Give me a holler if that sounds like something you’d be interested in doing!

I pulled out the new Buffalo Check, Cross-Stitched Christmas and Winter Woods stamp sets, along with the Sprig Punch – all from the Holiday catalog – and added them to some Pretty Pines and Pinewood Planks Dynamic TIEF elements.  Take a look-see:

I played along with the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.

I started by using my Stamparatus to stamp the Buffalo Check background in Mossy Meadow on Crumb Cake card stock, then I tore the edges and sponged them in Crumb Cake ink to create the vintage look.  I made a second card front by embossing a Crumb Cake panel in the Pinewood Planks Dynamic TIEF and sponged the edges with Crumb Cake ink.  I added the Buffalo Check panel to the embossed panel on a slight angle with Liquid Glue.

I sponged some Crumb Cake over a length of new Striped Burlap Ribbon (coming on 5 Sept) to tone down the white stripe and adhered it to the card front with a line of Liquid Glue.

I cut several Mossy Meadow pine boughs and a Copper Joyous Noel 6″ x 6″ Glimmer Paper Pine Cone with the Pretty Pines Thinlits dies and a couple of Copper Glimmer Paper Sprig Punch shapes.  Then I used Liquid Glue to add all but the pine cone to the card front.

I used the Stamparatus again to stamp the Cross-Stitched Christmas sentiment in Mossy Meadow to a piece of Crumb Cake, then I tore and sponged the edges.  I popped the sentiment over the ribbon with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Then I added the Glimmer Paper pine cone to the end with Liquid Glue.

I tied a double-loop Billie Bow from Linen Thread and adhered it with some Liquid Glue.  I tied a simple bow from a single length of Linen Thread and two lengths of Copper Metallic Thread and adhered it on top of the Billie Bow.

I added a few Pearl Basic Jewels colored with my Dark Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blend.  Then I popped the card front on to a Mossy Meadow mat with Stampin’ Dimensionals and set it all aside.

For the inside, I embossed and sponged a second Pinewood Planks Crumb Cake panel.  Then, with a second Crumb Cake panel, I tore and sponged the edges with Crumb Cake. I stamped a second sentiment from Cross-Stitched Christmas in Mossy Meadow, then added some pine boughs and cones from the new Winter Woods set, in Mossy Meadow and Soft Suede.

I adhered the panel to the embossed panel with Liquid Glue, then to a Mossy Meadow mat.  I adhered the whole thing into my Cherry Cobbler card base and added the card front with Liquid Glue.

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got more Winter Woods pine boughs and cones in Mossy Meadow and Soft Suede on the front…

…and then I stamped the envelope flap with the Buffalo Check background in Mossy Meadow (check the video for a cool trick!).

Et Voila!  I really really love how this card turned out – and know that you’re going to want to add the Buffalo Check, Winter Woods and Cross-Stitched Christmas to your ever-growing list of “needs!” from the 2018 Holiday Catalog!  Hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Making All the Days Bright Sneak Peek

Happy Saturday!  And it’s a REAL one, so…whoo-hooo!

Also – this time NEXT Saturday, I’ll be leavin’ on a jet plane – headed home for wiggle-butt hugs!!  WHOOO-HOOOO!!

And – I assume – a hug or two from Wayne!

But…WIGGLE-BUTT HUGS are even better!

So – my card today uses a fun little set in the new 2018 Holiday Catalog called Making All The Days Bright.  It has a little secret – although not BUNDLED with the Christmas Bulb Builder Punch – it coordinates with it perfectly!  So…when you buy the Making Christmas Bright bundle, be sure to pick this little gen up at the same time! 😉  It’s an image-only set, so I pulled out my All The Good Things set from the Annual Catalog for a couple of sentiments.  And I used a new background stamp called Buffalo Check (2018 Holiday).  Take a look-see:


The layout for this one comes from the Freshly Made Sketches challenge this week.

And my color scheme was inspired by the Color Throwdown challenge.

I stamped the new Buffalo Check (which you’ll be able to get in the 2018 Holiday Catalog on 5 Sept) image in So Saffron on a Whisper White panel.  I used my Stamparatus to do it to ensure I got a good image with this large background stamp.

Then I matted the panel on a piece of Mint Macaron card stock with some Liquid Glue.  I wrapped a length of Gray Granite 1/2″ Textured Weave Ribbon around the panel, securing it in the back with Glue Dots.

Next, I cut a Mint Macaron leaf with the new Detailed Leaves Thinlits (coming 5 Sept) and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.  Over the top of that is a Colored Doily adhered with the White side up.

On a piece of So Saffron card stock, I stamped a bunch of the little “petal” image from the Making All The Days Bright set in So Saffron ink and punched them all out with the Christmas Bulb Builder Punch.  Then I lightly sponged all their edges with So Saffron ink, using a Sponge Dauber.

I cut out the smallest circle in my Circles Layering Framelits from a piece of So Saffron and used that as a base for my flower, adhering the petals one at a time with Liquid Glue.  I popped the completed flower on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

My sentiment, from All The Good Things, is stamped in Gray Granite on Whisper White and then cut out with the banner die from the Night Owl Thinlits (5 Sept).  I edged it with my So Saffron Stampin’ Write Marker and adhered it to the flower with Liquid Glue.

I tied a little Mint Macaron bow with a piece of Nature’s Twine and adhered it with a rolled up Glue Dot – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a second sentiment from All The Good Things in Gray Granite on a Whisper White panel.  Over that, I created a flower using the Make All The Days Bright image – I just stamped the petal in a circle (the image was inked and stamped-off-once each time).

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Mint Macaron mat and into my Gray Granite 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 repeat of the Making All The Days Bright flower – in full-strength So Saffron…

…and I added the Buffalo Check in So Saffron to the envelope flap.  I used my Stamparatus again – and used sticky notes to mask off the front of the envelope.

Et Voila!  So many new goodies to love on this card – the Making All The Days Bright is really fun (and so darned handy that it gives you a SECOND stamp set to coordinate with the Making Christmas Bright bundle!) and I LOVE the Buffalo Check! 🙂  I am also thinking that the Detailed Leaves Thinlits are going to become a go-to for leaves this season!  Hope you like!

TTFN
