Stampin’ Up! A Snowman Season in Winter Woods for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hey y’all – it’s Thursday, so it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!!  Today’s a color challenge – and I’m excited to see what everyone brings to the table!  I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop today!

The color challenge we’ve got is a fun one – really pretty wide open!  It helped me to simplify my design – which was good!  I’m a little behind on Christmas cards (gasp!  I know….you are SHOCKED!).  So… I needed something pretty – and if I could make a stack of them easy peasy – then…even better!  Winter Woods and a sentiment from the Snowman Season…plus my Stamparatus!…was the answer.  Take a look-see:

No – your eyes don’t deceive you.  That’s a no-layer card.  So…not nine Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Nay…not even ONE!

Yes – there’s been a significant disturbance in the Force!

So – here’s our color challenge.

I selected Shaded Spruce for my third color.

The layout was inspired by the sketch challenge over at Hand Stamped Sentiments.

And my Christmas tree was inspired by the Global Design Project theme challenge.

Okay – this is all stamping and all Stamparatus – so…here we go!

I started with some Whisper White Note Cards and Envelopes.

If you’re going to stamp-a-stack of these…here’s a look at how you can set up your Stamparatus.  I put the bare trees on a panel to stamp from the side.  On the other side of that panel is the large single pine tree.  If you look at the panel on the top – I put “Merry Christmas” from the Snowman Season set up there.

Starting with the bare trees in the Winter Woods stamp set, I stamped the note card in Smoky Slate.  I did all my cards with this image.

Then I flipped the panel and stamped the large pine tree in Shaded Spruce on all the note cards.  Finally – I added the Snowman Season sentiment in Shaded Spruce.

 

I added a Rhinestone Basic Jewel as a tree topper.

On the inside, I again set up my Stamparatus.  I stamped a sentiment from Winter Woods in Shaded Spruce.  Then I came back and added the single pine bough, also from Winter Woods and also in Shaded Spruce.

And…uhm…that’s it!  Easy peasy!

I did add the Winter Woods pine bough in Shaded Spruce on the front of the matching Envelopes.

Et Voila!  This is SO far out of my wheelhouse – no Dimensionals, no Linen Thread bows, hardly any bling at all!  But…I LOVE it!  Winter Woods – with the bare tree line AND the large and lush pine tree – is perfect for this color scheme!  And the big, fun sentiment from Snowman Season was tailor-made!  If you need a stack of Christmas cards…pull these sets (and your STAMPARATUS!!) and get busy.  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Plaid Peaceful Boughs for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hey y’all – it’s Thursday, so it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!!  Today’s a sketch challenge – and I’m excited to see what everyone brings to the table!  I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop today!

I decided to go All-Favorites-All-The-Time today, so….I’ve got Beautiful Boughs on Wrapped in Plaid DSP with Peaceful Boughs sentiments! Self-indulgent?  Maybe.  Take a look-see!

And…here’s our sketch! 🙂

I started with some predominantly Night of Navy paper from the Wrapped in Plaid 6″ x 6″ DSP that I matted on Night of Navy for the card front.

I used a little strip of SNAIL to secure some Gold 1/4″ Shimmer Ribbon, then adhered it on the back with Glue Dots.

For the art panel, I first stamped the medium size boughs image from Peaceful Boughs in Shaded Spruce.  I stamped the image off once on scrap paper and stamped the art panel twice without re-inking.  I added some splatter in stamped-off-once Night of Navy – again stamping twice without re-inking.  Then I matted it on Night of Navy and popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut each of the boughs dies in the Beautiful Boughs Die set in Shaded Spruce, each size of the detailed pine cone in Early Espresso and each size of the solid pine cone in Gold Glimmer Paper.  These I adhered together with Liquid Glue to create the layered pine cones.

I stamped a sentiment from the Peaceful Boughs set in Night of Navy on Whisper White and cut it out with the smaller label die in Beautiful Boughs.

Finally – I cut three berry cuts from Gold Glimmer Paper using the die in the Frosted Bouquet Dies.

I arranged all the boughs and berries and pine cones and sentiment – looking for the just-right “there it is” moment.  Once I got it – I pulled the sentiment off and took a picture.  Then I started layering everything with Liquid Glue.

The last piece was to adhere the sentiment on top with Stampin’ Dimensionals and Liquid Glue.

I added some Holiday Rhinestones in Cherry Cobbler around the pine boughs and a Shaded Spruce gem on the sentiment and the card front was done.

On the inside, I used my Stamparatus to add a second sentiment from Peaceful Boughs in Night of Navy.  In the corners, I stamped the pine boughs in Shaded Spruce that I stamped off once before stamping the panel then stamped it again without re-inking.  I also added the splatters in Night of Navy in the same manner (stamped off once then stamped twice without re-inking).  A few Holiday Rhinestones in Cherry Cobbler and Shaded Spruce finished it off.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Night of Navy mat and into my Shaded Spruce card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Peaceful Boughs boughs and splatters on the front…

… and a little more of that Wrapped in Plaid DSP on the envelope flap!

Et Voila!  Seriously – is it any wonder these are some of my favorite things?  And – the Peaceful Boughs and Beautiful Boughs are CARRYING over!  Whoo-hoo!  Know what is NOT?  THe Bundle pricing, is what!  That’s right – once the Holiday catalog goes away – so does that 10% savings.  So….get it now!  AND – the Wrapped in Plaid DSP is NOT carrying over, soooo – you know what you need to do!  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Perfectly Wrapped in Plaid Ho Ho Ho!

Morning, y’all!  Are you checking out the Year-End-Closeout bargains and determining which of the Retiring and Discontinuing goodies you need to add to your stash before they’re gone?  I hope so – don’t be risking losing them forever! 🙂

My card today uses a stamp set and punch that IS carrying over – the Perfectly Plaid Bundle with its Pine Tree Punch!  But – when next you see it – it will NOT be a bundle – and you will NOT be able to save 10% on the purchase price.  So…if you don’t have it yet…get it before the end of the Holiday catalog!

I mean – unless you LIKE spending extra money??

No?

Didn’t think so!

I used the bundle and combined it with the seriously gorgeous Wrapped in Plaid DSP.  Which is NOT carrying over – which means you MUST get it before 2 Jan (or before it sells out!).  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from this week’s Global Design Project sketch challenge.

And the Christmas-y colors are from the CAS Colours & Sketches color challenge!

I started with some Cherry Cobbler paper from the Wrapped in Plaid 6″ x 6″ DSP that I matted on Gold Foil for the card front.

Using SNAIL – I laid down a length of Shaded Spruce/Gold 3/8″ Striped Ribbon, that I secured in the back with Glue Dots.

I cut two Stitched Shapes squares from a piece of Whisper White – and two Gold Foil scalloped squares using the Layering Squares Dies.  I adhered them together with Liquid Glue – then adhered them to the card front.

I punched a Pine Tree Punch shape from two different – but similar! – designs in the Wrapped in Plaid 6″ x 6″ DSP.  Then I popped them both on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the Perfectly Plaid sentiment in Versamark Ink on a piece of Cherry Cobbler card stock and sprinkled it with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  Then I heat embossed it with my Heat Tool.

I cut the sentiment with a Stitched Rectangle Die and used Liquid Glue and a single Dimensional in the center to adhere it over the Pine Trees.

I added a few Shaded Spruce gems from the Noble Peacock Rhinestones and the card front was done.

On the inside, I used my Stamparatus to add a Cherry Cobbler plaid tree from Perfectly Plaid in the middle of a Whisper White panel.  When it was good and dry, I inked the second sentiment from Perfectly Plaid in Versamark and stamped it over top.  I heat embossed it in Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  Then I added a single Shaded Spruce Noble Peacock Rhinestone.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Gold Foil mat and into my Shaded Spruce card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another Cherry Cobbler plaid tree on the front…

…and one of the pretty plaids on the envelope flap!

Et Voila!  This Perfectly Plaid bundle – with a Pine Tree Punch (loves me a good punch!) is absolutely one of my favorite things and I am SO happy that it’s carrying over!  I hope you’ve already got it – but if you don’t – be sure to pick it up with the 10% bundle price.  And do NOT miss getting a goodly supply of the gorgeous Wrapped in Plaid 6″ x 6″ DSP before it is GONE, Baby, GONE!  I hope you like!

Finn took a little limelight-break today!

He allowed me to share a couple of sweet photos with you of a tiny human and one of my favorite people!

You guys might recall that a few weeks back I put together the super cool Countdown to Christmas Project Kit (which – OBTW – we’ll see again next Fall – YEAH!!!)?  And we talked about what kinds of things to put in a 2″ x 2″ box that was suitable for a 1+ year old.

Well – I got it pulled off.  I DID do some boxes for mom and dad – seemed fair!

So…yesterday I got some photos of young Nehemiah Walsh and his first Countdown to Christmas calendar!

Behold!

Seriously?  Is he not adorable??!

And – he comes by his ginger-ness quite honestly.  Here he is with his Dad (the aforementioned one-of-my favorite people!).

So…given the smiles and the fact that Jenna told me she’d been looking for a calendar and that this one is “perfect” – I’m going to take them at their word and stick this one in the WIN column!

AND – it’s easy-peasy to put together?!?  Score!

Stampin’ Up! Detailed Bells are Ringing for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Happy Thanksgiving, y’all!  Hope you have a most wonderful day with friends and family!  Thanks for taking a minute out of your holiday to take a peek at today’s Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!!  We’ve got a color challenge today – and I’m excited to see what everyone brings to the table!  I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop today!

Our colors are simple and classic and elegant so…I pulled out the Bells Are Ringing stamp set and bundled Detailed Bells dies.  Plus a couple of fun embossing folders.  Take a look-see:

And – here’s the colors we were playing with!

I also borrowed some design inspiration from the CAS(E) This Sketch challenge this week.

I started with two pieces of Very Vanilla cardstock.  I used my Stamparatus to stamp a little sentiment from the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set in Night of Navy near the bottom of the panel.  Then I embossed the panel in the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder and matted it on Night of Navy.  For the smaller panel, I pulled out the brand new Parisian Flourish 3D Embossing Folder (coming on 4 Jan in the 2020 Jan – Jun Mini Catalog).  I embossed the panel, matted it on Night of Navy and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

With the Detailed Bells Dies, I cut out two smaller solid bells in Very Vanilla and a larger solid bell in Night of Navy.  I also cut some detailed bells – two in Night of Navy and one in Copper Foil.

I adhered the detailed bells to their solid counterparts with Liquid Glue.  Then I adhered the smaller bells to the card front with Liquid Glue and popped the large bell on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I tied a little bow from 1/4″ Copper Trim and adhered it with a Glue Dot – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a sentiment from Bells Are Ringing in Night of Navy to a Very Vanilla panel.  In the corner, I stamped a small bell in Night of Navy.  Over the top, I added a Copper Foil Detailed Bell die cut with Liquid Glue.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Night of Navy mat and into my Very Vanilla card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got some Night of Navy bells on the front…

…and a Night of Navy bow on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Easy and elegant – the Bells Are Ringing Bundle, with the beautiful Detailed Bells dies – are perfect for the holiday season!  And the sweet sentiments in the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set add just the right touch.  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Holly Jolly Brick & Mortar Christmas

Happy Happy FRI-AWWWMP Day!

I know you know what I was doing there.

I hope this really IS your last work day of the week.

I also hope that you took your turkey out of the freezer!  I took ours out on Monday.  Which…might have been okay (I was THINKING it was okay!) if it was a 12-13 pound turkey.  This is a 21-pounder, so…it’s now languishing in water in a bucket in the fridge in the barn.  We’ll see. Fingers crossed!

My card today is a jump forward to Christmas – cuz…it’s like tomorrow!!  And it’s super easy and let’s the Night Before Christmas DSP really do all the work – with an assist from the Suite’s Memories & More Card Pack and the Holly Jolly Christmas stamp set.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from this week’s Sunday Stamps sketch challenge.

And the theme falls right into the photo inspiration from Hand Stamped Sentiments.

I started with the Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing Folder – and I swiped my Whisper White Craft Pad over the DE-bossing side of the folder.  Then I carefully stuck my Cherry Cobbler panel into the folder and ran it thru my die cutting machine with the 3D Embossing Folder Plate.

Once it was embossed – and lightly accented with white – I used the Craft Pad again to swipe lightly across the raised portions of the embossed panel.

I picked three fun designs from the Night Before Christmas DSP and cut three circles with the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I cut scalloped-edge circles of Gold Glimmer with the Circles Layering Framelits.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the DSP circles to their Gold Glimmer mats.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the largest circle to the Brick-embossed panel.  Then I popped the other two circles on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I pulled out my Night Before Christmas Memories & More Card Pack and selected a sentiment sticker in Pretty Peacock.  I used my Embossing Buddy to “dull” the stick ’em on the back of the sticker and then popped it onto the card front with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a few gold stars from the Most Wonderful Time Product Medley – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a sentiment from Holly Jolly Christmas in Pretty Peacock to a Whisper White panel.  Next to it is a couple of candy cane stickers from the Night Before Christmas Memories & More Card Pack.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Gold Glimmer Paper mat and into my Pretty Peacock card base.  For the front, I added a Gold Glimmer panel at an angle with Liquid Glue, then popped the card front over top with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Night Before Christmas Memories & More Card Pack candy canes on the front…

…and then I continued the candy cane theme with some more of the Night Before Christmas DSP on the envelope flap!

Et Voila!  The Night Before Christmas Suite is so….perfect!  I love the paper and the Memories & More card pack goodies – and the Holly Jolly Christmas stamp set and matching Jolly Christmas Dies.  It’s such fun and chock-a-block full of Santa-y Christmas goodness!  I hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix


We’re in tempt-the-old-cat-to-make-her-eat mode these days.  She’s apparently got some kidney function loss and that appears to affect appetite.  So…we’re on a quest.  Not only will we give her appetite stimulating meds – and antacid.  Via a shot.  Huh?  But that’s what the vet told us.  So…that’s what we’ll do.

In the meantime, I hit the grocery each day to get a selection of tempting morsels for the princess.

Just so you know – this is NOT the most cost-effective way to feed a cat.  Especially given that the super-special-I-love-them-so-much-give-me-MOREMOREMORE treats of Saturday become the you’ve-got-to-be-kidding-why-would-you-try-to-make-me-eat-THAT treats on Sunday.  🙁

But – on Tuesday, I found a secret for the time being.  It needs a date/time stamp of her approval, but…right this second…beef baby food mixed with Fancy Feast Grilled with Gravy seems to be hitting the spot for her!

This is a clean bowl for this little cat!

Finn is…less than thrilled by the super-special-I-know-it’s-the-bestest-food-ever-on-any-planet-anywhere-and-why-can’t-I-have-it that SHE gets and HE doesn’t.

See him out there?  He raced from one door to the other several times in an effort to get my attention to let me know he NEEDED to come in RIGHT NOW!!

Poor pitiful little 85-pound dog…he never gets anything good to eat…

Stampin’ Up! Angled Snowman Season!

Mornin’, y’all!  Well – Friday again!  Whoo-hoo!  I’m headed north today to get my hair cut – in preparation for next week’s OnStage!  I’m excited for that – it’s always great to see friends from around the country – and we’ll get to see (and order from!!) the new Occasions Catalog, too!  Can you believe it’s almost time for that!?  That means it’s almost 2020.

Where are the flying cars?!?  That’s all I want to know.  I’m pretty sure George Jetson promised flying cars by now… 😉

Anywho – more on OnStage as we get closer!

My card today is ready for Christmas!  And snow.  Which I hope we do NOT get.  No offense to snow or folk who love snow, but…I’m WAY okay without it!  But – that does mean that the only snowmen I’m going to be able to make are in paper.  Thankfully I’ve got the Snowman Season bundle and some cool and frosty Let It Snow Specialty DSP.  Take a look-see:
