Stampin’ Up! Colorful Graceful Garden

Morning, all!  Welcome to the weekend – hope you’ve got some fun plans and that the weather is going to be nice for you!

I thought after a few days of what looked like complex, multi-step projects, that you might be ready for a super quick, super simple – but super pretty card!

So – I pulled out the new Graceful Garden stamp set and the Artistically Asian stamp set, plus some Color Theory DSP – and gave you exactly that.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Background Bits Sneak Peek for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop



Happy Thursday, y’all – and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! We’ve got a sketch to play with this week and I know all our ladies have made some beautiful projects for you.  Y’all be sure to hop thru all their blogs when you get done here! 🙂

Here’s the sketch…

I’ll be honest here, folks – I spent a fair bit of time sitting at my craft table trying to figure out what the heck to do with this one.  It for sure wasn’t one of those that I “saw” as soon as I looked at the sketch.  But – I finally decided to use the new Background Bits Host stamp set in the new Annual Catalog.  And I paired it up with some of the new Color Theory DSP.  Take a look-see:

Once I sort of got a picture in my head, it went together pretty quickly.  I started by SNAILing a piece of Whisper White card stock to a Tranquil Tide mat for the card front.

The bottom square of my stack is a piece of the Dapper Denim paper in the Color Theory DSP Stack, cut with a Stitched Shapes square die and matted on a scalloped edge Tranquil Tide square, cut with the Squares Layering Framelits.  It’s SNAILd to the card front.

For the angled panel, I stamped the floral background image in the Background Bits stamp set in Tranquil Tide twice on a piece of Whisper White and then cut it out with my trimmer.  I sponged the edges in Dapper Denim and then adhered it over the layered square with Liquid Glue.

I stamped the single flower image from Background Bits twice in Basic Black Archival Ink on another piece of Dapper Denim paper from the Color Theory DSP Stack and then cut it with a Stitched Shapes circle die.  I used a little Liquid Glue to adhere it to a Tranquil Tide scalloped circle and then popped it over the layers with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The final layer is my sentiment.  I inked the sentiment from Background Bits in Versamark and stamped it on a piece of the same paper as my art circle.  I sprinkled it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heated it up.  I snipped one end in a banner and then, to mimic a mat, I sponged the edges of the banner with Dapper Denim.  It’s adhered with Liquid Glue.  I added a few Pearl Basic Jewel Embellishments and the card front was done!

On the inside, I used my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to stamp a second sentiment from Background Bits in Dapper Denim on a piece of Whisper White card stock.  Across the bottom, I stamped the multiple flower image in Basic Black Archival Ink.  Then I used my Dapper Denim Stampin’ Write Marker to color in the white accents in the flowers.

I SNAILd the panel to a Tranquil Tide mat and into my Basic Black card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more of the Basic Black Background Bits flowers (colored in with Dapper Denim) across the front…

…and then I added more of the Dapper Denim Color Theory DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  It took me a minute to come up with an idea, but once I got rolling…I really like how clean and simple it turned out.  Background Bits is a lovely little stamp set – available exclusively with Stampin’ Rewards!  Hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! At Home With You Sneak Peek!

Happy Hawwmp Day, y’all!

We had a few big things happen today.  Ready?  Okay.  Here we go.

Wayne saw the first king/rat snake of the year!  Whoo-hoo!  We were afraid maybe they’d been culled out by the hawks.  Mice – your days are numbered! 🙂

Wayne also got a clean bill of health from the GI doc – all the labs and tests they did during his surgery came back negative!  Whoo-hooo-hoooo!!!

And finally – and this is YUGE! – we found a Vietnamese restaurant close enough for us to actually go to – and we went there!  And it was good – and a nice/safe/clean place to eat!

Oh my goodness, y’all!  I’m tickled to death over this!

I was so happy (and full!) that I came home and played with a new stamp set and framelits.  The At Home With You bundle!  I paired it up with some Color Theory and Wood Textures DSP.  Take a look-see:

There’s a little surprise on the front…

Right?  The sentiments in the At Home With You are sized and meant to go “inside” the door!  And there are two dies that work together in the At Home Framelits to create the opening door!

I started with a piece of Crushed Curry paper from the Color Theory DSP stack and SNAILd it to a Tranquil Tide mat.  I think it looks like stucco!

Next, I stamped the door image in Early Espresso on a piece of the Wood Textures DSP and cut it with the dies in the At Home Framelits.  The only trick here is to be sure the non-cutting (in other words – the creasing side!!) of the door die is on the correct side of the image!

I also cut the door outline die from a piece of Whisper White card stock.  In order to get the inside sentiment aligned correctly, I used my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to get it stamped in the right spot.  I inked the sentiment from the At Home With You stamp set in Tranquil Tide, and added it to the Whisper White “door”.  Then I used Liquid Glue to adhere the door to the white piece and then onto the card front.

I inked two lanterns from the set in Versamark and stamped them on Whisper White, sprinkled them with Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed them.  I cut them out with their matching dies in the At Home Framleits, then I popped them on the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I colored the tops of the lanterns with the Soft Suede Stampin’ Write Marker, and the candle flame with Daffodil Delight.

I made the wreath and two flower pots – stamping the wreath in Old Olive and the pots in Early Espresso.  I colored the flowers in Powder Pink, Berry Burst, Pink Pirouette and Daffodil Delight and the leaves in Old Olive.  

I popped the flower pots on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and then filled the pots in with Crumb Cake.

For the wreath – I cut two more wreath shapes in Whisper White and adhered them all together with Liquid Glue then added it to the door with Liquid Glue.

For the door sign, I stamped the sign outline in Soft Suede and “Hello” – both in the At Home With You stamp set – in Soft Suede.  The sentiment is stamped in Tranquil Tide.  I cut it with its die and adhered it with Liquid Glue.  I finished it off with a tiny Linen Thread bow.

Finally, the welcome mat is inked with my Soft Suede and Tranquil Tide Stampin’ Write Markers.  I stamped it on Whisper White, cut it with its die and adhered it with Liquid Glue.

On the inside, I stamped a second At Home With You sentiment in Tranquil Tide on a panel of Whisper White.  Then I stamped the wreath in Old Olive – I covered part of the image with a small piece of tape.  Then I colored the flowers and leaves just like I’d done on the front of the card.

I added a little Linen Thread bow, SNAILd the panel to a Tranquil Tide mat and into my Daffodil Delight card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another At Home With You wreath…

…and I put some more of the Color Theory DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  No – really.  Et.  Voila!  I know it looks hard cuz it took a lot of words to say what I did.  But…it really wasn’t.  Just took a lot of words!  This At Home With You bundle is a ton of fun – with lots of sentiments and images for you to ensure that your card’s curb appeal is ready for any occasion.  Hope you like and are adding this one to your wish list!

Finn-Fan Fix…

Perhaps you’ve heard the old saying for new mom’s – sleep when the baby sleeps?

Well – apparently that’s true for dog-moms, too.  (Definitely not the most flattering pic of mom.  Thanks, Wayne!) 

The question is, though – how does the dog-mom saying go?  Is the Mom sleeping when the puppy is sleeping?

Or…is the Puppy sleeping when the mom sleeps.

He has two favorite places to be.  Well – three if you count my lap!

One is under my craft table! 🙂

The other is under my recliner.  So far under that it’s hard to see him.  

I think he thinks it’s a cave.

I just have to say it again.

He’s ridiculously cute and sweet.

TTFN

M

P.S.  No.  I haven’t squished him yet.  I’ve gotten so used to him being there that I always locate him before I put the foot rest down!

Stampin’ Up! Colorful & Delightful Daisy Thank You

Good morning!!  I hope your weekend is going well!

This afternoon, I’ll be taking the Finn-ster to our first obedience class.  Time for him to figure out that he can behave nicely even with other dogs and people around!  It’s step one towards my goal to do pet therapy with him!  Once I get home, I’ll be getting ready to do my Sunday night Facebook Live with y’all.  Not sure yet what we’re going to make, but…I think we’ll have fun!  So be sure to come on over to my Facebook page at 8pm Eastern this evening.  Here’s a link right to the page!

Now for today, I really tried to resist my strong desire to use my new favoritest bundle from the new catalog – the Daisy Delight bundle.

I tried.

And failed. 🙂

So I paired it up with some Color Theory DSP (also available 1 June) and this is what I ended up with.  Take a look-see:

I played along with a couple of challenges on this one.  The first, from Freshly Made Sketches, inspired the layout.

And the color scheme is from the CAS-ual Fridays challenge.

I elected to use Dapper Denim for my navy color, and began by SNAILing a piece of the Color Theory DSP Stack to a Powder Pink mat.  Powder Pink is one of the new 2017-2019 In Colors!

My center panel is simply a piece of Whisper White, matted on Powder Pink card stock and SNAILd to the card front.

I used a little Liquid Glue to adhere a piece of Powder Pink card stock to the Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from Daisy Delight in Dapper Denim on Whisper White and popped it over the Powder Pink mat with some Stampin’ Dimensionals.

For my flowers, I stamped the large flower image from Daisy Delight in Powder Pink four times on some Whisper White card stock, and cut them out with the Daisy Punch.

I used a Blender Pen to brush some Pink Pirouette ink near the center of the flowers, and then used Liquid Glue to stack two together.  I popped the flowers onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals and added a couple of Clear Faceted Gems (coming in the new catalog on 1 June) to the middles.

On the inside, I stamped some more Daisy Delight flowers in Powder Pink in the corner of a Whisper White panel.  Once again, I brushed Pink Pirouette onto the petals and the center of the flowers with a Blender Pen.  Then I used the flower-middle image in Daisy Delight to stamp a Powder Pink middle.  Finally, I added a second Daisy Delight sentiment in Dapper Denim.

I SNAILd the panel to a Powder Pink mat and into my Dapper Denim card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got a couple more Powder Pink Daisy Delight flowers on the front…

…and I added a little more of the Dapper Denim Color Theory DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I couldn’t help it, y’all.  I just love this set!!  Daisy Delight and the matching Daisy Punch.  Wow!  I hope you like – and….well.  You know the rest!  Get your wish lists ready!!

Scroll on down for the card cuts and all the products you’ll need to make this one for yourself!

Finn-Fan Fix…

Well, he’s back.  Finn has got his groove back!

But – he still didn’t have it on Friday night.  He only made it about half way to the barn with me when I went to tuck the horses in.

Guess he figured he was still meeting the intent of taking care of me, long as he could see me!

Or at least hear me!

Once he got back in the house, though….the great weariness overcame him once again….

Yes.  It overcame him right in the middle of chewing his bone.  One second he was chewing and then….asleep.

Check the tongue! And the fang sticking out.  LOL

Ridiculously cute.
