Stampin’ Up! One Big Meaning World of Thanks

It’s Hawp Day!!  Hey Mike!

Before we hit the card for the day – wanted to tell you that I’ll be posting my Retired Products sale list this afternoon – so watch for a second posting.  I’ll be selling things for half price – plus actual shipping costs.  Stay tuned….

AND – this is the last day for my Double Peppermint Rewards special!  I’ll honor orders placed thru my Online Store anytime today – and I’ll even let you slide in if you’ve got it in before I wake up tomorrow morning!  Cuz that’s how I roll! 🙂

Okay – so today I made a thank you card – I just need them all the time, so it’s kind of my go-to sentiment choice!  I used a couple of older stamp sets – to include A World of Thanks and One Big Meaning.  Take a look-see:

I was playing along with a sketch challenge for this one, and that’s where the layout came from.  The Sunday Stamps Challenge #128: Continue reading

Stampin’ Up! Wetlands and Guy Greetings for Father’s Day

11 June 16 UPDATE!  I just found out that this card was selected by the Design Team over at The Paper Players as A Cut Above.  Check it – and all the winners! – out right here! 🙂


Good morning, y’all!  How’s your week going?  I got some more veggies planted – before the rain came in! And – I named the goose.

Oh – might not have mentioned the goose?  Apparently, we’ve been adopted and granted the privilege of being the new home for a domestic goose.  He (she?) just showed up last Friday.  Might have come from the flock next door.  No clue.  He’s kinda pretty.  And he looks real nice tooling around the pond.

Did you know they swim with their little web legs out behind them?  I always figured – you know, all those times I considered how geese might swim – that they would have their legs under them.  But they don’t!  His little orange legs just stick right out behind him!  It’s kind of cool.

So – since he seems to be planning to stick around for a minute – he sort of likes the scoop of cracked corn he gets every evening (yes, we’re suckers/saps/soft-touches/marshamallows)….I figured I’d name him.

Duck Duck.

As in Duck Duck….Goose!


Anywho – Duck Duck helped inspire me for today’s card.  I pulled out the Wetlands stamp set – which features a goose – and added a little swath from the Over the Rainbow set.  Since it’s a Father’s Day card – I grabbed a sentiment from Guy Greetings.  Just made sense.  Take a look-see:

I decided to make a Father’s Day card cuz of the sketch challenge over at The Paper Players.  Challenge #298: Continue reading

Stampin’ Up! Oh, Hello Swirly Bird!

Happy Monday, y’all!  I hope you’re all ready to go back to work!  I’m thinkin’ I may take a day or two off.  Maybe three.  Just to make a few cards, perhaps do some organizing and cleaning up around the house.  Tend my garden – which, OBTW, is growing great guns!!  I need to plant some seeds and get them started.  I’ll take a picture for you for tomorrow.

So, yesterday I pulled out all my retired punches and TIEFs and Framelits and Thinlits and ribbons and all the etc’s.  I stuck them in a box with the retired stamps and punches I already had in there.  In a few days, I’m going to post my Retired SU! products page – so, stay tuned and get some good deals, huh? 😉

Today’s card uses two new stamp sets – Swirly Bird and Thoughtful Banners – to create a quick, fun little card for any occasion.  Take a look-see:

Oh, Hello Swirly Bird 4 - Stamps-N-Lingers

I played along with three challenges today!  The first, for the layout, was the Freshly Made Sketches challenge #239: Continue reading

Stampin’ Up! Affectionately Yours Watercolor Wishes!

Home again!  Yeah!!  Feels good to be back in the fold.  The horses were glad to see me – well, they acted like they were glad…coulda just been the prospect of peppermints! 🙂  And I had a lap full of cat last night – which is pretty much about as good as it gets!!

Speaking of peppermints – just a quick reminder that this is such a great time to start filling up those wish lists from the new 2016-2017 Annual Catalog.  In addition to the great specials that SU! is putting on in the month of June – you can earn DOUBLE peppermint rewards points right now thru Wednesday, 8 June!  So…git yer shop on! 🙂

The focal point for my card today is the very pretty floral paper in the Affectionately Yours DSP.  I used the paper and I replicated the flowers with the Love and Affection stamp set.  With the addition of a sentiment from the Watercolor Wishes stamp set – available exclusively when you purchase the Watercolor Wishes Card Kit – I ended up with a cheerful summery any occasion card.  Take a look-see:

The design for this tall-and-skinny card was inspired by this week’s Mojo Monday challenge sketch #450: Continue reading

Stampin’ Up! Pop of Paradise Thanks for a Single Stamp Set Saturday!

Good morning, y’all!  I’m kind of hoping that when you read this, I’m still half-asleep in bed.  And that all my stuff is in the car.  But – it’s also kind of likely that all my stuff is still piled up in my room.  And that I’m schlepping it down to the car.  Also possible that I was anxious to get home and so I woke up too early and got on the road before it was light.  Or close to being light.  We won’t know until tomorrow.  It’s a mystery.

But I hope I’m still in my bed! 🙂

It could happen.

For today – I made you guys a fun thank-you card using the uber-cute Pop of Paradise stamp set and a pretty green and pink color scheme.  Take a look-see:

Today’s card is another one I made across the long weekend, and it makes use of the pretty Love & Affection Stamp Set, plus a little Affectionately Yours DSP.  And the Floral Affection TIEF!  Take a look-see:

We all worked with what is one of my favorite color combinations – black, white and pink.  Pink in the form of Melon Mambo!

June 2-3For my card, I used the Swirly Scribbles Framelits and a little of the matching Swirly Bird stamp set, and the star of the show is a sentiment from Layering Love – displayed in a couple of hearts from the new Sweet & Sassy Framelits set.  Take a look-see:
