Stampin’ Up! North Pole Wishes & Wonder 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 with a Christmas theme and pulled out an as-yet-uninked set – the Wishes & Wonder bundle – which includes the fun North Pole Wonder Dies.  I added some “Tis the Season DSP and…a couple of berries from the Poinsettia Dies.  Take a look-see:

And..here’s the sketch we all worked with this week!  As you can tell, I set it on it’s side!

I started with a piece of Shaded Spruce plaid from the ‘Tis the Season DSP and matted it on Real Red for the card front.  Then I matted a strip of a second design on Real Red and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I used my brand spanking new Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine (whoo-hoo!!) to cut some Shaded Spruce pine boughs with the North Pole Wonder dies and a couple Real Red Poinsettia Dies berries.   I also cut the deer from a piece of Bronze Brushed Cardstock.

I used SCEM (that’s his name – SCEM!) to emboss a piece of Copper Brushed Metallic Cardstock in the Dainty Diamonds Embossing Folder.  Then I cut it with a circle die from the North Pole Wonder dies.

I adhered a Square Vellum Doily with Liquid Glue to begin the collage.  Next is the greenery and…red-dery….  Then I topped it with the embossed copper circle.  Finally, I added the Bronze deer die cut.

I stamped a Wishes & Wonder sentiment in Shaded Spruce on a piece of Whisper White and cut it with a Stitched Rectangle Die.

I added a couple of the small North Pole Wonder pine boughs with Liquid Glue – then stuck three little Real Red Wonderful Gems on like…you know…berries! 😉

I tied a bow from a piece of Real Red 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim and adhered it with a Glue Dot. Then I stuck another Glue Dot on top of the bow.  Using that Glue Dot – and a couple of double-stacks of Stampin’ Dimensionals – I adhered the sentiment.

To finish off, I added some clear Wonderful Gems to a few of the large pine boughs – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped the mistletoe image from Wishes & Wonder in Shaded Spruce on a Whisper White panel.  I colored the berries with my Real Red Stampin’ Write Marker – and added a few Real Red Wonderful Gems!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Real Red mat and into my Early Espresso card base, adhered the card front with Liquid Glue and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Wishes & Wonder mistletoe on the front (no Wonderful Gems, though!)…

…and more of the plaid ‘Tis the Season DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Wishes & Wonder is a fun – sort of old-fashioned-vintage-y feeling stamp set and the matching North Pole Wonder Dies is so fun – check out the other dies that you’ve got to play with!

And the ‘Tis the Season DSP is the perfect complement to that bundle – and the entire Wonder of the Season Suite!

I hope you like! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Christmastime is Here Fun Fold Gift Card Holder

‘Sup, y’all!  How did the Fall-Back go for you?  It’s 7am here.  But really 8.  So – you should be wide-awake and perky!  Your dogs and cats and ponies are looking at you like – what the HECK!! – but…YOU got an extra hour of sleep.

Or…did you??!

Regardless – we’re in it now until Spring.  Bleh.

If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video, I appreciate you spending part of your last evening in Daylight Savings Time with me!  If not, but you’d like to watch the replay – here ’tis on YouTube!

The project we did last night is quite timely, since we’re plunging headlong into Gift Card Giving Season (GCGS).  I like giving gift cards – I do! – but…they always seem a little like I phoned it in.  So…I feel BETTER about it if I can present them in a beautiful and/or clever gift card holder.  And this one is both!  With the gorgeous Christmas Rose stamp set and bundled Rose Dies, atop wunnermus Christmastime Is Here Specialty DSP.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Mini Curvy Keepsakes Glow Lantern Decorations

Morning, y’all!  Happy Sunday!

If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video – I appreciate you spending part of your weekend with me!  If not – but you’d like to see how to make these fun decorations, here’s the replay. 🙂

A customer – and friend! – asked me about using Vellum and battery tea lights with the Mini Curvy Keepsake dies.  She also asked about using the Delicata inks on the Vellum.  So…I did it all – and made some Christmas and wedding/anniversary decorations.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Christmas Traditions Pop-Up Gift Card Holder

Morning, y’all!  Happy Monday!  I, for one, am hoping that we woke up to some sunshine and a little warmth today.  The entire weekend was entirely too yucky for us – wet and nasty.  It was the kind of weekend where you just wanted to roll over and stay in bed.  Maybe with some kind soul bringing a cup of hot chocolate.  And maybe a cookie.

Or twelve! 😉

If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video – I appreciate you spending some of your weekend with me!  If not, but would like to see how to make the pop-up gift card holder we worked on, here’s the replay!  Oh – and the last 30 minutes is all 2019 Occasions and Sale-A-Bration Catalogs Sneak Peeks!  Just sayin!

Stampin’ Up! Gift Card Holder Video Sneak Peek!

Good morning!  Winter has struck again here in GA – it was nasty last night! Bleh.  Cold and rainy and…well…NASTY!  I even brought the horses back in a few hours early so they’d start to get dry before the temps really dropped.  Even the girls were ready to come in!

Since it’s Sunday and I’m home – we’ll get together tonight at 8pm Eastern on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page for a little video!  And we’re going to make a fun-fold that’s just perfect for Christmas time giving!  Take a sneaky-peak!

Stampin’ Up! Sincerely Santa Project Kit

Happy Monday, y’all!  Hope you had a great weekend!  We got the promised snow and holed up at the house on Sunday.  Watched the Bronco’s.

Let’s just not talk about that game, okay? 🙁

I want to share a really cool project kit from the 2018 Holiday Catalog – it’s called the Sincerely Santa Kit.  And it’s totally cool.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tidings Project Kit Sneak Peek

Happy happy Hawwwmp Day, y’all!! About this time next week we’ll be done with the “hard” part of the test and will be in cruise control mode to the end!  We’ll be back to “regular” hours and weekends completely off!  And – I’ll be only about a week and a half from heading home!  Whoo-hooo! 🙂

So – couple of things before we get going.  First:  it’s time to be thinking about 2018 Holiday Catalog Shares!  I’ve got mine open and welcome you to take a look-see and get signed up!  Check out all the details and find a form for signing up right here.  Second:  today’s the last day to get entered to win the Pqper Pumpkin Blog Candy!  Click right here to get your name in the mix!

Stampin’ Up! Santa’s Workshop Memories & More Sneak Peek

Good Monday!  So…this is the next-to-last 12-hour Monday for me.  After the next one, we should go back to “regular” (to include actually taking the weekend off – gasp!) so that will be a relief.  I’m not as wired for this kind of schedule as I used to be.  12 hour day?  Got it.  Five in a row?  Cool – can do it in my sleep.  FIFTEEEN days in a row?  Not so easy any more.

But – I can do anything for 2 more weeks, so…this too shall pass.  I’ll be glad, though, to get back to having a little time and a lot more creative energy to make cards.  I have a lot of “wanna” when I get to the hotel at night, but…not a lotta “DO”!

Fortunately, one of the goodies that arrived in my pre-order was a Santa’s Workshop Memories & More Card Pack.  I used a few goodies from that, along with a large Poppy Parade Santa’s Workshop Card and Envelope from the pack we got as a free give-away on the Cruise.  And not one ink pad was opened in the making of this card!  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Merry Christmas!!

Merry Merry Christmas, y’all!  I hope this finds you well and opening presents and making dinner preparations!  I’ll be deviling eggs and bringing my Prime Rib to room temperature in readiness for cooking!

No card today – just a greeting from me and Finn.

Thank you all so very much for a most wonderful year! 🙂

As you sit down to dinner today and give Thanks for the Blessing of this Day and this Season, please remember our men and women in the military.  So many of them are spending this day away from their family and friends so that we may be with ours in Peace and safety.  Say a little prayer for them, if you please.

I’ll see you tomorrow, my friends.

But, if your order is over $150, please don’t use this code (you’ll miss out on your own Stampin’ Rewards if you use it) but you’ll still get the free gift. The free gift is your choice of any item valued up to $10.00 from the 2017-2018 Annual Catalog or the 2017 Holiday Catalog! And – you can even select one of the Host-exclusive sets! See my Rewards page for more details.


There’s Still Time – Join My Next Online Host Club!!


Sale-A-Bration is Coming and that’s a GREAT time to get Host Benefits!

Would you like to receive host benefits ? Would you like to build up your Stampin’ Up! tool chest a little at a time?  Well then – an Online Host Club might be the perfect solution for you!

My next club will start up on 3 Jan (coincidently with the arrival of the 2018 Occasions Catalog and the start of Sale-A-Bration!) and I have a few openings available.

How does it work?  Well – at a glance…

You sign up for a 6 month term and agree to:

  • Place a $25.00 minimum order each month
  • Place your order by the 20th of each month
  • Use the Host code I’ll provide in an email sent out at the beginning of each month

And what do you get in return?

  • Based on a random draw, you’ll be the “host” for one of the six months
  • In your month, you’ll be guaranteed a workshop total of $150 – meaning no less than $15 in Stampin’ Rewards for you to spend!
  • In your Host month, your order ships FREE!
  • When you place a host club order – which you’ll do each month – you’ll get DOUBLE peppermints for that order!  So – if all you did was place your $25 order for the six months, you’d end up with 12 Peppermints.  Most folks end up with all 16 (and then some) – and earn a free $40 gift!
  • At the end of the club, you’ll get to choose a free stamp set up to $20!
  • And – you get first dibs on the next Online Club!
  • FREE monthly tutorial with 4-5 projects – and access to all the past tutorials on my  website!
  • FREE catalogs during your membership term

Sound like something you’d be interested in? Let me know quick – spots are filling up fast!
