Stampin’ Up! Color Me Happy Pretty Pines

Good….Friday, y’all!  Hope you’ve had a great week and are ready for a weekend!

OnStage has been great so far…and wait until you get a gander at the new 2018 Occasions Catalog!  I’m so excited for you to get to see it!  Soon! 🙂

For today, I have a fun little pine-y Thank You card to share – it uses the large sentiment from the new Color Me Happy stamp set, a little Christmas Happiness and Pretty Pines die cuts and some Christmas Around the World DSP.  Take a look-see:

I played along with The Paper Players theme challenge this week:

I started with a Basic Black card base.  Then I cut two pieces of the plaid Christmas Around the World DSP to the exact size as the card – each is 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″.  I used Liquid Glue to adhere one sheet on the front of the card and the second sheet on the inside.  You’ll see how that ended up in a little bit.

Next up, I cut a smaller panel of Very Vanilla card stock and, using the splatter image in Touches of Texture, stamped it in Soft Suede a  couple of times – not re-inking between the stamps.

With my Christmas Happiness stamp set, I stamped a couple of pine boughs in Garden Green over the top of my splatters.  I added the medium size pine cone – the outline shape is in Early Espresso and the fill is Soft Suede.  Then I matted the panel on a piece of Garden Green card stock.

For my sentiment, I used the large Thank You in the new Color Me Happy stamp set, stamping it in Early Espresso on a piece of Wood Textures DSP.  Then I fussy cut just the “Thanks”.

I adhered the cut sentiment to the stamped panel with Liquid Glue.  Then, using my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig, I stamped just the work “you” under the sentiment in Early Espresso.

With the shortest pine bough die in the Pretty Pines Thinlits, I cut a couple of Garden Green pine boughs and adhered them with some Liquid Glue under the sentiment.   Then I cut a length of Jute Twine and unwound it – so I had three thinner strands.  With one of those strands, I tied a little bow and adhered it with a Glue Dot.

I added three Black Rhinestone Jewels to the panel and popped it over the plaid card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside, I cut another of the short pine boughs from Pretty Pines out of the corner of a Very Vanilla panel.

I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Garden Green mat and into the card base – you can see where I’d already adhered the Christmas Around the World DSP!  And that was it for the card base!

My Very Vanilla Medium envelope got some more Garden Green, Early Espresso and Soft Suede Christmas Happiness pine boughs and cone on the front…

…and some more Christmas Around the World Mary’s-Favorite-Plaid-Paper on the envelope flap!

Et Voila!  So – wood.  Pine boughs.  Pine Cones.  PLAID!  Hello??  Gotta love the Christmas Happiness stamp set and the Pretty Pines Thinlits, right?  And look how the Color Me Happy sentiment just slides right in there!!  Hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Christmas Quilt Card Front Builder

Mornin’, y’all!!  Happy Monday.

??

Sorry to start the week with an oxymoron!  Although this is a good week on a couple of levels – one…it’s ONSTAGE WEEK!!  Whoo-hoo!  I work tonight and tomorrow night and then it’s off to OnStage with 8 of the ladies in our team and no-telling how many other demonstrators!  We’re touring the Home Office on Wednesday then Thursday the Main Event begins!!  And – then when I get back on Sunday….that will leave just one more week till I go home!

Whooo-hooo!!  I’m really ready, y’all!

If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video – thank you so much!!  If not, but you’d like to see the card we made, here’s the link to it on YouTube!

The sneak peek I showed you yesterday ended up as the start of the card we did – I finally got past my mental brain block and figured it out!  It uses the wonderful tree dies from the Card Front Builder Thinlits, a little plaid paper from the Christmas Around the World DSP and a sweet little sentiment from Christmas Quilt.  Take a look-see:

I started with a piece of Very Vanilla card stock and, with the Big Shot, cut the Card Front Builder Thinlits double and single tree shapes from near the top.  I used the same dies to cut the shapes from a piece of Christmas Around the World DSP.  Then I stuck the plaid cuts inside the negative spaces and used scotch tape on the back to secure them in place.

I ran the panel back thru the Big Shot, cutting the trees a second time.  Check the video for a tip about placement, okay?

The insides of those negative spaces are filled with Garden Green die cuts – in the same way I did the plaid trees.  Then I embossed the panel in the Softly Falling TIEF and matted the whole thing on a Real Red mat.

My sentiment, from Christmas Quilt, is stamped on a strip of Very Vanilla in Real Red.  I bannerized the end with my Paper Snips and edged it with my Garden Green Stampin’ Write Marker.  It’s popped on the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals – both regular and Mini.

I cut another Christmas Around the World Card Front Builder tree, covered it with glue from my Fine-Tip Glue pen and “sugared” it with Dazzling Diamonds Stampin’ Glitter.  Then I used Liquid Glue to adhere it to another tree in Very Vanilla.  I used some Dimensionals on the back to wind a few loops of Gold Metallic Thread and, with the addition of a little Liquid Glue, added it over the sentiment.

I added a few gold stars from the Metallics Enamel Shapes and the card front was done.

On the inside, I cut another double tree with the Card Front Builder Thinlits at the bottom of a Very Vanilla panel.  I stuck in another Christmas Around the World DSP tree (using some scotch tape on the back) and then adhered a Very Vanilla die cut over the top with Liquid Glue.

I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Real Red mat and into my Thick Very Vanilla card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got two more Card Front Builder trees on the front – one in plaid and one in Very Vanilla…

…and more Christmas Around the World DSP plaid on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  For all that this one bamboozled me on Saturday night, I’m pretty happy with how it turned out!  I love love love this plaid paper and those trees in the Card Front Builder Thinlits are just the best, don’t you think!?  Don’t forget the sweet and simple sentiment courtesy of the Christmas Quilt stamp set!  Hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Sunday Video Sneak Peek

Mornin’, y’all!  Hope you remembered to set your clocks back last night when you went to bed!  I personally wish we’d just stick with daylight savings time all year long.  I hate this jumping around, don’t you?

So – you might be wondering about the relatively cryptic nature of the title of my post today?  Usually I stick a stamp name or die set or something like that in there, I know.

But…I had a card in my head when I got back from work last night.  And I spent too long trying desperately to make it work.  And it just wouldn’t.  But I refused to give up the concept, so I pulled out the Card Front Builder Thinlits.  And some Christmas Around the World plaid.

And then the creative process simply…stalled.  I had a concept, but…nothing concrete.  So…I decided to sleep on it and took a picture of what I had.  Take a look-see:

Looks promising, maybe – we’ll see what transpires when I look at it in the light of day! 🙂

I sure hope you’ll join me tonight, at 8pm Eastern, on my Stamps-N-Lingers Facebook page.  And we’ll all see what I’ve come up with by then! 🙂

Have a super Sunday – enjoy that extra hour!

TTFN

Stampin’ Up! Seasonal Christmas Around the World for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop



Happy Thursday, y’all – and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! We’ve got a full roster playing with today’s sketch, so be sure to check ’em all out when you get done here!  

Here’s our fun sketch – I love these designs with the wonky matting!

I decided to let some pretty Designer Paper from the Christmas Around the World do a lot of the work for me – and ended up with a card that used zero ink.  Yep, no stamping!  I added some texture with the Cable Knit Dynamic TIEF and a few snowflakes from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits.  Take a look-see:

This card also plays along with the theme challenge from this week’s TGIF Challenge.

I started with a piece of Whisper White card stock, embossed it with the Cable Knit Dynamic TIEF and matted it on a piece of Powder Pink card stock for the card front.  

Next up, I matted a piece of Quilted Christmas DSP on Powder Pink and adhered it to the card front – sort of wonky-style – with Fast Fuse.  A second panel, from Christmas Around the World, is also matted on Powder Pink.  That one’s popped on with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

I adhered a strip of Powder Pink 3/8″ Shimmer Ribbon across the panels with some Liquid Glue.

The sentiment is cut from a piece of the Christmas Around the World DSP using an Ovals Layering Framelit and matted on a scalloped Powder Pink mat.  It’s adhered over the ribbon with Fast Fuse.

I cut three small snowflakes with the Seasonal Layers Thinlits from Powder Pink card stock.  I used my Fine-Tip Glue Pen to lay glue down all over each snowflake and sprinkled them with Dazzling Diamonds Stampin’ Glitter.  Then I adhered them with a little Liquid Glue to the card front.  The addition of a Rhinestone Basic Jewel on each snowflake finished off the card front.

On the inside, I cut two snowflakes with the Seasonal Layers Thinlits from the bottom corner of a Whisper White panel.  Then I adhered the panel to a Powder Pink mat with Fast Fuse (and a little Liquid Glue around the cut-out areas).  Finally, I used more Liquid Glue and stuck the die cut snowflakes back into the negative space.

I added a Rhinestone to each snowflake, Fast Fuse’d the panel into my Basic Gray card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got a Powder Pink Seasonal Layers snowflake adhered to the front with Liquid Glue…

…and another piece of the Christmas Around the World DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Now…”Happy Holidays” isn’t my normal choice for a greeting at Christmas – but I thought it would be fun to show how versatile that design is in the Christmas Around the World DSP!  And I love how the papers all work together with the the gorgeous Cable Knit Dynamic TIEF and Seasonal Layers Thinlits.  Hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Ready For Christmas for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop



Happy Thursday, y’all – and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! We’ve got a full roster playing with today’s sketch challenge, so be sure to check ’em all out when you get done here!  

Here’s the sketch on the table today:

I decided to go with a Christmas theme – no, I’m not Ready for Christmas (yet!) – but this stamp set is!  You can tell cuz that’s it name!  So, I paired the Ready for Christmas and bundled Christmas Staircase Thinlits with some Merry Little Christmas DSP.  Take a look-see:

To begin, I Fast Fused a piece of Merry Little Christmas DSP onto a Basic Black mat – black side up – the Old Olive side just wouldn’t do for this one!

Next, I cut a strip of Gold Glimmer paper and bannerized the ends with my Banner Triple Punch.  It’s adhered to the card front with Liquid Glue.

Over that, I added a Gold Foil Snowflake with some Liquid Glue.

To build my Christmas tree – it was so easy and fun! – I first stamped the image from the Ready for Christmas stamp set in Early Espresso on a piece of Whisper White card stock.  I used the Early Espresso to give just a hit of brown with the white – which, when added to the Garden Green in the next step….said “Christmas Tree” to me!

In the Christmas Staircase Thinlits, there are two dies that are pine tree boughs.  I cut 9 of them from Garden Green and, using Liquid Glue, “built” my tree.  Start at the bottom and work your way up.  It’s sort of like assembling a fake Christmas Tree (one of the older ones where you had to stick each branch in one at a time).  Easy.  Quick  And fun to build!  I used the little ribbon die and the star – both from Christmas Staircase Thinlits – to cut bows and a star from Gold Glimmer Paper.  These are adhered with Liquid Glue.  Then I used more Liquid Glue to adhere the tree to the card front.

My sentiment, from Ready for Christmas, is heat embossed in Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder on a strip of Basic Black (be sure to use the Embossing Buddy!!).  I’d made a gold-matted label sentiment – but…it just didn’t work for my card, so…hang on.  You’ll see that in a day or two! 😉

I cut banner ends with my Paper Snips and popped it over the tree with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  A small Black Rhinestone Jewel next to the sentiment finished off the card front.  

On the inside, I heat embossed a second sentiment from Ready For Christmas in Gold on a Whisper White panel.  Then I stamped the garland in Garden Green and added Gold Embossed bows (again – don’t forget to use the Embossing Buddy. Oh – and be sure the green ink is dry!).

I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Basic Black mat and into my Whisper White card base, Fast Fuse’d the card front on and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another Garden Green Ready for Christmas garland and gold embossed bows on the front…

…and a little more of the Merry Little Christmas DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I love this Christmas Tree-building set!  The boughs that the dies cut are very realistic – especially when layered up on the die cut tree!  And I think the black/white/gold – with just a pop of Christmas-y green is very striking, don’t you?  Hope you like!!

Stampin’ Up! Stamping Sunday Blog Hop – Labels to Love


Good Sunday morning, y’all!  I’ll have a second post a little later with my FB Live Video sneak peek!  

I’m excited to be a guest in the Stamping Sunday blog hop this week!  We’re all creating projects using the so-pretty (and versatile!) Labels to Love stamp set from the Stampin’ Up! 2017 Holiday Catalog to share with you today.  

I decided to add a few bits and pieces for my card – a little Christmas Around the World plaid DSP, some Pretty Pine boughs and berries, and an assist from Christmas Happiness.  Take a look-see:

I started by matting a piece of Christmas Around the World DSP (the plaid – my favorite!) on a piece of Gold Foil for the card front.  Next I pulled a piece of Whisper White and embossed it in the new Quilt Top TIEF, matted it on Gold Foil, and adhered it over the card front with Liquid Glue.

I used my Pretty Pines Thinlit dies to cut some Garden Green pine boughs, Real Red leaves and Gold Foil berries.

For the label, I inked the pretty sentiment from Labels to Love using my Garden Green and Real Red Stampin’ Write Markers and stamped it on Whisper White.  Then I punched it with the matching Everyday Label punch.  I also punched a label in Gold Foil, then adhered the sentiment to its mat – offset just a little – with Liquid Glue.

After a quick dry-fit to be sure I knew where I wanted to put what – I used Liquid Glue to adhere the Pretty Pines boughs, leaves and berries to the embossed panel.

I popped the matted sentiment over the embellishments with Stampin’ Dinensionals.  Then I tied a little bow from some Real Red Mini Tinsel Trim and adhered it with a Glue Dot.

The final touch was a small Black Rhinestone Jewel and the card front was done!

On the inside, I used the pretty pine bough image from the Christmas Happiness stamp set, and stamped it twice (without re-inking!) in Garden Green in the corner of a Whisper White panel.  Then I added a strip of the Christmas Around the World DSP that I’d matted on Gold Foil over the top.  Just cuz I could, I added a Black Rhinestone Jewel!

I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Gold Foil mat and into my Thick Whisper White card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another double-stamped pine bough from Christmas Happiness in Garden Green on the front…

…and I added some more of that wonderful plaid paper from the Christmas Around the World DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  The Labels to Love stamp set really lives up to its name – you gotta love all the different label-sized sentiments for Christmas, Thanksgiving, Halloween, New Years and even Valentine’s Day!  All paired up with the Everyday Label punch.  And – of course, you can hardly go wrong with pine boughs and plaid, now can you?  Hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Christmas Happiness Eclipse Noel

Hey y’all – it’s HAAAWWWMP day!  As I type this on Tuesday evening, I’m thinking about my friends down in Florida – with no power.  Water in places water shouldn’t be.  No water in places it should be.

And that makes me feel pretty darned petty for being pissy cuz we haven’t had power since yesterday.  Waaa….yea.  I’m not proud of it.

We have a generator and lanterns and bottled water.  And we can keep our cold food cold.

So – we have it pretty danged good.  Like I said – not proud.

My card for today – which I kind of am proud of – is an eclipse-technique Christmas card using the Christmas Happiness stamp set and some Large Letters Framelits.  And yes, I had to use a little more plaid paper from the Christmas Around the World DSP.  Take a look-see.

I played along with this week’s Tic-Tac-Toe challenge – I went right across the center of the “board”.

I started with a panel of Whisper White card stock, lined up the Large Letters Framelits that spell “NOEL” and cut them with the Big Shot.

Once they were all cut, I laid the whole panel (including the letters) down on my squishy Silicon Craft Sheet, with two upside down sticky notes – making sure that the cut out letters were being held securely by the sticky notes.  That way they wouldn’t come up when I stamped them with the Christmas Happiness images.

I stamped the pine boughs in Old Olive – twice.  Then I added the small pinecone (outline) in Early Espresso.  Those are finished off with the fill-in image in Soft Suede.  If you make this – be sure to hold the stamps down for an extra beat to help eliminate the “halo” around the cut letters.

I made the raised letters first by cutting each of them two more times in Early Espresso card stock, then I stacked them up with Liquid Glue.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the stamped Whisper White panel (without the letters) onto an Old Olive mat.  When you do this – don’t forget the middle of the “O”!  Then I popped each stacked letter in place with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The card front is a piece of plaid paper from the Christmas Around the World DSP Fast Fuse’d onto an Old Olive mat.  Then I added the sentiment panel with Liquid Glue.

I wrapped some Linen Thread around the card front three times and secured it in the back with scotch tape.  Then I made a Billie Moan bow and adhered that with a Glue Dot.  I tied a second “regular” bow with three strands of Linen Thread and stuck that over the first bow with another Glue Dot.  It’s finished off with a Real Red dot from the Brights Enamel Shapes.  Adding three more little shapes finished off the card front.

On the inside, I added another Old Olive pine bough and an Early Espresso/Soft Suede pine cone from Christmas Happiness to a Whisper White panel.

I Fast Fuse’d the panel to an Old Olive mat and into my Real Red card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another Christmas Happiness pine bough and cone on the front…

…and I added some more of the plaid Christmas Around the World paper to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I can’t help it, y’all!  I love this Christmas Happiness stamp set.  And the plaid paper from Christmas Around the World.  And the eclipse technique.  So…I pretty much had to use them all again – together!!  Hope you like!

Finn-Fan Fix  

Finn apparently loves Tropical Storms.

He acts like the driving rain and wind is just a way to get mud and puddles.  And mud puddles.  And mud hills.  And water on the ground (also known as puddles).

He loves mud and puddles.

So he’s spent the last couple of days running thru said mud and puddles.

And we’re going thru towels like crazy.

Which is bad – cuz as I type this on Tuesday evening we still don’t have our power back. So…no laundry!

But – ya gotta dry the dog.

Every.  Single.  Time.  He.  Comes.   In.

Which is a few!  Fortunately, he’s pretty good about it.  

Walks in the back door and stops on the rug.  

Are we doing this, Mom?

It didn’t stop raining, did it!?!?

Stampin’ Up! Around the World to Bethlehem!

Good Monday mornin’, y’all!  I can say that today and it isn’t even an oxymoron!

I won’t be picking up the blackberry (which is actually an iPhone now, but…I’ve been saying “blackberry” for so many years now…15?…that I can’t seem to change) or firing up the work computer.  So…Good Monday!! 😉

If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video – thanks for spending a little bit of your long weekend with me!  If not, and you’d like to watch the replay, here it is!

I used the Night in Bethlehem stamp set and the bundled Bethlehem Edgelits (save 10% when you buy them together!!) and added a little bit of pretty paper from the Christmas Around the World DSP to make my pretty Christmas card.  Take a look-see:

Around the World to Bethlehem - Stamps-N-Lingers 4

The layout for this one was inspired by the sketch challenge at the Global Design Project.

Screen Shot 2017-09-03 at 19.36.37

I started with a piece of Christmas Around the World DSP and matted it to a Smoky Slate panel for the card front.  The sentiment, from Night in Bethlehem, is stamped in Pool Party on the Whisper White panel and also matted on Smoky Slate.

Around the World to Bethlehem - Stamps-N-Lingers 3

I took a Silver Foil Snowflake and cut it into 8 wedges, then used my Grid Paper to help me line them up and adhered them to the back of the sentiment with Liquid Glue.  Be sure the Silver side is up!  The creamy color on the back is pretty and useful, but…not so much on this card! 🙂

Then I adhered the sentiment to the card front with Liquid Glue.

Using the “cityscape” dies in the Bethlehem Edgelits, I cut one in Silver Foil and one in Basic Gray.  I put a half of a Mini Stampin’ Dimensional under each of the end palm trees on the Basic Gray die cut and then used Liquid Glue to adhere it to the card front.

Around the World to Bethlehem - Stamps-N-Lingers 2

With Liquid Glue, I added the Silver Foil cityscape die cut – making sure that the bottoms lined up.

I wrapped a piece of Pool Party Baker’s Twine twice around, securing it in the back with scotch tape.  Then I used a Glue Dot to add a silver Year of Cheer star embellishment and a double bow.  A Rhinestone Basic Jewel finished it off!

Around the World to Bethlehem - Stamps-N-Lingers 1

On the inside, I lightly sponged a city scene in Pool Party using the “stencil” that remained from cutting the Bethlehem Edgelit die cut.  Then I added a second Night in Bethlehem sentiment in Pool Party and a Rhinestone Basic Jewel.

Around the World to Bethlehem - Stamps-N-Lingers 5

I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Smoky Slate mat and into my Pool Party card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

On the front of my Whisper White Medium Envelope, I sponged a second city scape in Pool Party…

Around the World to Bethlehem - Stamps-N-Lingers 6

…and then added a little more Christmas Around the World DSP to the envelope flap.

Around the World to Bethlehem - Stamps-N-Lingers 7

Et Voila!  This Night in Bethlehem and its matching Bethlehem Edgelits has to be one of my favorite sets in the new Holiday Catalog – I just love it.  I hope you like it, too!!

Don’t miss out on Double Peppermints, y’all!  Not for nuthin’ – if you buy the Night in Bethlehem Clear Bundle and the Christmas Around the World DSP to make this card…boom!  You’ve got enough right there to get those Double Points!  

Just sayin’…
