Stampin’ Up! Winter Woods Christmas Season

Happy Weekend!  Hope you’ve got something fun planned!  I made it home safely yesterday ahead of the next winter storm.  Whoo-hooo!  Did not get the test done that needed to be done – the plane simply wouldn’t cooperate.  But – I got a nice little road trip and saw some of my friends from our last event in CA, which was fun.  So – far from wasted for me! 🙂

I’ve got a pretty little Christmas card for you today using the wonderful Winter Woods stamp set.  I set it stop some Woodland TIEF embossing – take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Merry Christmas To All Is Bright

Mornin’, y’all.  It’s Monday, the Monday after we lost #41.  He’s with Barbara and his little girl, now – but…we’re worse for the loss of George H.W. Bush.  He was a great man and a great patriot, who exuded grace and civility throughout his Presidency and his entire life of service.

I’m proud to have served under you, sir.

I’ve got a quick and easy card for you today – one that you can whip out in a heartbeat!  A little paper – in this case from the All Is Bright DSP – and stamp and some ink!  The Merry Christmas To All set is perfect if you want a big, bold sentiment!  Take a look-see…

The layout was inspired by the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches this week – although I turned it a little! 🙂

And the theme is from The Paper Players challenge!

Buckle-up, Buttercup – this’ll take about two blinks of an eye!


I started with a plain piece of paper from the All Is Bright DSP and matted it on Real Red for the card front.

Then I matted a smaller piece on Real Red and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I used my Stamparatus to stamp the large sentiment from the Merry Christmas To All stamp set in Shaded Spruce on a piece of Whisper White card stock.  I added the flourish in Real Red, matted the panel on Real Red – and popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I finished it with a Gold Metallic Pearl and the card front was done!

Told ya! 😉

On the inside, I added a second Shaded Spruce sentiment and a Real Red flourish to a Whisper White panel.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Real Red 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 more Merry Christmas To All flourishes in Real Red on the front…

…and then I put some more of the All Is Bright DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This very basic layout is perfect with some All Is Bright greenery and a bold, center-stage-taking sentiment from the Merry Christmas To All stamp set!  And – you could do this same design with any of your favorite DSPs and a big, stand-out sentiment!  Hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix

Today’s Finn Fan Fix has absolutely nothing to do with Finn.

Well – he DID go up to the gate to pick up the boxes.

So…it’s Finn-Fan-Fix-Adjacent! 🙂

We got a call from the Amazon Sunday delivery lady saying she had two boxes for us – so we just had her leave them inside the gate and then Wayne and the Man went and got them.

I was trying to remember what I’d ordered.  I’m a bit of a Prime-a-holic, y’all.  Not gonna lie.

So anyway – Wayne comes back in with…

Now I’m totally stumped.  What the….??

No kidding.  Three items and the packing slip.  Not another thing.  Those could have fit in a padded envelope – and not even needed a very BIG one!!  LOL!!

Well – it’s a good box for mailing Christmas I guess!! 🙂

Morning, y’all!  Hope the week is treating you well as you get ready for the big day!

I’m in Huntsville – worked for a while, did my meeting – then went and had dinner with a friend and his family – and their pretty darned new and awfully cute little baby boy!  Had such a nice time with them!!  It really made the long drive worthwhile!!

Stampin’ Up! Vintage Angels on Earth

Good morning!  So…Tuesday!  I hope you voted (or are planning to) today.  I’m hoping to get that done on our way out of town – cuz…I hate to think I’d have to spend the next few years NOT having the right to gripe and complain about our elected officials, right?!

On a much more important note…Amy and I will be traveling to Orlando today to begin our whirlwind week of fun at OnStage!!  This is Stampin’ Up!’s 30th Anniversary – so…it’s going to be a blow-out event, I am certain sure.  Watch thru the week for pictures and updates – the usual Spoiler Alert has been lifted.  Which means I can share goodies from the 2019 Occasions and Sale-A-Bration catalogs all willy and nilly!  Whoo-hoo!!  Can’t wait to see what’s in store!

For today, I’ve got an angelic card to share with you, courtesy of the Angels on Earth stamp set and some Tin Tile Dynamic embossing.  Take a look-see:
