Stampin’ Up! Come To Gather a Harvest Hello Gift Bags

Good morning!  I hope you’re all having a wonderful day!

If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook live video – I appreciate you spending part of your wekeend with me!  If not – but you’d like to watch the re-run, here ’tis!!

I needed some gift bags for an upcoming event and saw my friend Linda Richenberg make these on her YouTube video.  Also – she gave me one a couple of weeks back, so…yeah!! 😉

I wanted to go with a Fall-but-not-Halloween vibe, so I pulled out the Harvest Hello’s stamp set with its bundled Apple Builder Punch and the gorgeous Come to Gather DSP to make some of these bags!  Take a look-see:

These are so fun and easy that I’ve already got a bunch of them ready to fill and tie up!  I’ve done several color combinations, using the different designs in the Come To Gather DSP.

The bag starts with a 7 1/2″ x 7 3/4″ piece of card stock and uses the Simply Scored board to score a few lines, Paper Snips to snip a few snips and some Tear and Tape adhesive.

Here’s a handy template for you!

One of the bags I made started with a Mint Macaron bag.  Once I made all my score lines – I added the DSP with Liquid Glue.  As you can see, I matted the front and back panels on Pretty Peacock card stock.

The picture above shows where I put my Tear and Tape Adhesive – on the 1/2″ flap and on the flap under the BACK panel.

Once I got the bag put together, I added a bag closure at the top – using the same color of card stock as the mats.  I punched one end with the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch and adhered the back with Liquid Glue.

 

Next up is the tag.  The base is the wood-grain paper from Come To Gather – punched at the top with the Scalloped Tag Topper punch.  I added some faux stitches with a Stampin’ Write Marker – the color depends on the color scheme of the bag!

I ran the ribbon from the Magnolia Lane Ribbon Combo Pack thru the tag  and then adhered it to the front of the bag with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  The Dimensionals are only on the sides of the tag – allowing the ribbon to run freely!

My pumpkin, from the Harvest Hellos set, is stamped in a coordinating darker color on Whisper White.  I colored the pumpkin using Stampin’ Blends.  Then I added a “tendril” and sentiment.  Once I punched it with the Apple Builder Punch, I added a coordinating stem (also made with the Apple Builder Punch).

I popped the pumpkin onto the tag with Stampin’ Dimensionals and added a Rhinestone (from the Holiday Basic Rhinestones or the Nobler Peacock Rhinestones) and a tiny Linen Thread bow!

Et Voila – once I get them all filled up – chocolate!! – I’ll tie a bow at the top and they’ll be ready to go!

This is SO easy to do – and would work for any occasion and with any DSP and card stock you’d like to use!  The Harvest Hellos bundle and Come To Gather DSP would be perfect choices for any Fall gifting need!  I hope you like!

This was kind of a down-and-dirty blog description – so…take a look at the video and see for yourself, okay? 🙂

Well – Dr. Wayne has been at it again!

No – not Mr. Reindeer (although he’s on the list….) – this time for something near and dear to MY heart!

My Breville Smart Air Pro oven!  Had a door problem so….

Screwdriver….Yes, Doctor (slap)!

Finn wasn’t QUITE as concerned over the outcome of this surgery but…he still kept an eye on the proceedings.

I mean – surgery is surgery.  And if he’s going to let Dr. Wayne continue to be the surgeon-of-record for Mr. Reindeer, it’s important to keep track of the goings on and doings of the surgeon.  Like…tracking professional education and stuff! 😉

So far so good.  Dr. Wayne may keep his privileges…

Finn Fan Fix


Well – yesterday was Finn’s semi-annual trip to the vet for all those shots and tests and…poking and prodding!

You’ll all be glad to hear he got a very clean bill of health!

And he’s a “very good dog – very healthy dog – very nice dog!”

True – true – true!

He has…however…put on a few pounds since his last visit. 🙁

He really doesn’t get a lot of HIS food – or even OUR food.

I feel pretty sure that his propensity for stealing his sister’s food is the prime culprit!

But – we’ll get him back down – easier in the winter when it’s not so durned hot for a furry-dog!

Going to the doctor – and being cute – and being a “very good dog – very healthy dog – very nice dog!” is exhausting work, though!

He pretty much crashed the rest of the day!

We’ll work on that exercise program…tomorrow! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Come and Gather 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 Hop is a color challenge – and I’m excited to see what everyone comes up with –  I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop!

When I saw the color combo for the challenge – I immediately thought – Come to Gather DSP.  Then I spent a little time hemming and hawing and decisioning.  Like…for about 5 seconds.  WAS this the right choice??  Should I go with the unexpected??  And then I remembered back to my college days – the first answer you believe to be true…usually is.  So…I stuck with my original choice and added some beautiful leaves and sentiments from the Gather Together Bundle.  Take a look-see:

And here’s our color scheme – so pretty! 🙂

When I saw the CAS(E) This Sketch layout this week – my brain “saw” the card!

This Gather Together bundle – with the Gather Together stamp set and Gathered Leaves Dies – is a fave – cuz it perfectly lends itself to my favorite card element – the Collage! So, of course that’s what I did!

I started with the wonderful wood-grain paper from the Come To Gather DSP and matted it on Cajun Craze for the card front.  I used a second design, also matted on Cajun Craze, for the horizontal strip element.

I cut yet another – predominantly Pretty Peacock – paper with the largest circle Stitched Shapes Die and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue – letting one edge hang off.  Then I trimmed that excess with a Paper Trimmer.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere a Tags & Feathers Element directly to the card front.

I inked up the large leaf from Gather Together in Early Espresso, stamped it off once on scrap paper and then stamped it on a piece of the wood-grain Come To Gather DSP.  Over that, I stamped the sentiment in Pretty Peacock and then cut the leaf with the matching Gathered Leaves Die.  I adhered it to the wooden tag with Liquid Glue.

I used my Stampin’ Spritzer to lightly mist some Pretty Peacock and Cajun Craze card stock and cut out the three smaller leaves from both colors (giving me 6 cut-and-embossed leaves). While they were still damp, I lightly curled them with my fingers.

I carefully adhered five of the leaves around and under the sentiment leaf, using Liquid Glue.  Then I used a couple of Stampin’ Dimensionals under the points of the sentiment leaf to fully stick it down.

I added the sixth leaf to the wooden tag with Liquid Glue.

I created a double-loop bow using a length of Cajun Craze Linen Thread (from the Come To Gather Ribbon Combo Pack) and a length of Linen Thread.  I just used the two lengths together as I wound the bow – and I reduced the number of loops to two big and two small!  I stuck the bow on with a couple of Glue Dots.  The final touch was three copper-finish Designer Elements.

On the inside, I added a second Gather Together sentiment in Pretty Peacock to a Whisper White panel.  Over the top is another leaf – in stamped off TWICE Early Espresso.  I also added a few splatters in stamped-off-THREE times Cajun Craze.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Cajun Craze mat and into my Early Espresso card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got a full strength Early Espresso leaf and Cajun Craze splatters on the front…

…and more Come To Gather DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  The entire Gather Together suite simply screams I LOVE FALL, don’t you think?  The Gather Together stamp set is perfect with it’s images and sentiments.  And…the Gathered Leaves dies – that emboss as they cut (with no additional pads/shims needed!) – is simply…wunnermus!  And they complement the gorgeous Come to Gather DSP like peanut butter does chocolate!   I hope you like!

Now that you’ve seen my card, take a minute to hop thru all our projects today  If you click on the Next Blog button, you’ll go right to Kristi’s page. And you can just click on the names below to go direct to all the blogs!

Stampin’ Up! Gather Together Harvest Hellos Sneak Peek 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 Hop is a sketch challenge – and I’m excited to see what everyone comes up with –  I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop!

I figured to give you another 2019 Holiday Catalog sneak peek – using the wonderful Gather Together and Harvest Hellos bundles – plus some Come to Gather DSP – and make a collage card for Fall!  Take a look-see:

And…here’s our sketch for the challenge!

I started with a piece of Early Espresso card stock, folded to make a landscape card front – and, using the large leaf image from the Gather Together stamp set, I stamped the leaves across the front of the card base in Early Espresso ink.

Next up is a strip of Come to Gather DSP, matted on Mint Macaron, and adhered right to the card front with Liquid Glue.  A second design, also matted on Mint Macaron, was next.

I used the same DSP design that I made my strip from and cut a Stitched Shapes circle.

The leaves – all cut with the wonderful dies in the Gathered Leaves Die set – are cut (and embossed at the same time!) from Mint Macaron and Pretty Peacock card stocks.  I used my Stampin’ Spritzer to lightly mist the card stock before running it thru the die cutting machine.  Yes – I did one set without misting….liked it better with the water.  So… 😉  I lightly curled the leaves just using my fingers to roll them.

I pulled out the Harvest Hellos stamp set and stamped the large pumpkin in Early Espresso on Very Vanilla.  I colored it with my Dark So Saffron and Light and Dark Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends – then I punched it out with the bundled Apple Builder Punch.  I also punched a little stem from Early Espresso.

I used the sentiment from Harvest Hellos and stamped it on Very Vanilla in Pretty Peacock.  Over top is a small pumpkin from Gather Together, stamped in stamped-off-once Mint Macaron – then cut with the matching die from Gathered Leaves.

I built up the collage with Liquid Glue for the leaves and Stitched Shapes Circle – and Dimensionals for the pumpkins.  Before adhering the colored pumpkin, I added a few loops of Cajun Craze Linen Thread from the new Gather Together Ribbon Combo.

I added some Pumpkin Pie jewels from the Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a second sentiment from Harvest Hellos in Pretty Peacock on a Very Vanilla panel.  Over top is a stamped-off-once Mint Macaron pumpkin from Gather Together.  I added a few more of those pumpkins – full strength! – across the bottom.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Mint Macaron mat and into my Early Espresso card base and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got more Gather Together pumpkins on the front…

…and more of the Come To Gather DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  These two bundles – Harvest Hellos and Gather Together – just go together like peanut butter and jelly!  Having them both – plus the Come To Gather DSP – will give you a huge head start for all your Fall and Thanksgiving projects!  You’ll be able to get your hands on all of it come 4 September!  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Birds of a Feather Sneak Peek for the Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop!

Good morning, y’all – welcome to another edition of Amy’s Inkin’ Krew team blog hop!  Each month we make projects centered around a theme – and this month our theme is Fall Frenzy!  We can interpret that any way we want – so…be sure to check and see everyone’s projects – we’ve got a bunch of talented ladies hopping with us this month!

First off – it’s hard to think about Fall when it’s 100 outside.  Just sayin’… 😉

I decided another sneak peek from the 2019 Holiday Catalog was the way to go here – and I figured….why not go with Thanksgiving?  So…I pulled out the new Birds of a Feather stamp set (which covers Thanksgiving, Halloween, Christmas and Valentine’s Day!) and paired the little turkey with some Come To Gather DSP.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one comes from this week’s TGIF Sketch Challenge.

And the colors are from… Sunday Stamps! 🙂

I started with some feather-y Pretty Peacock paper from the Come To Gather DSP (coming in the new 2019 Holiday Catalog on 4 Sept) and matted it on Crushed Curry for the card front.

On a smaller rectangle of Very Vanilla, I stamped the little turkey from Birds of a Feather (avail 4 Sept) in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored – her (she’s my turkey and she can be a she if I want to her to be, so… 😉 ) – with my Light and Dark Crumb Cake, Pretty Peacock and Rococo Rose Stampin’ Blends.  Plus my Crushed Curry, Cajun Craze, Early Espresso and Pretty Posy Stampin’ Write Markers.

I stamped the gobbler again on a second Pretty Peacock design from the Come To Gather DSP and fussy cut just the apron.  Did the same on a Pretty Posy checkered piece of 2019-2021 In Color 6″ x 6″ DSP and cut out the apron pocket.  I adhered both with Liquid Glue.

I stamped the Birds of a Feather sentiment in Pretty Peacock in the bottom corner.  Then I matted it on Crushed Curry and adhered it to the card front.

I pulled out a Tags & Feathers Elements and colored the middle stripe of one with my Pretty Peacock Blend.  Then I adhered it to the panel with Liquid Glue.

A tiny Linen Thread bow and some Pretty Posy 2019-2021 Faceted Dots finished off the card front!

On the inside, I added the Birds of a Feather gobbler in the bottom corner of a Very Vanilla panel and colored her as I’d done on the front.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Crushed Curry mat and into my Cajun Craze card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got another gobbler on the front…

…and some more feathery Come To Gather DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I love this little image from Birds of a Feather – and it’s so cool that the single set covers so many occasions, don’t you think?  And the Come To Gather DSP is going to be a mainstay for all your Fall projects!  I hope you like!

Now that you’ve seen my card, I hope you’ll take a little time to jump thru all the other projects we have to share. Click any name below, or you can use the Previous Blog button to jump to Terry Lynns’s page or the Next Blog button to see what Akiko’s been up to!

Stampin’ Up! Here’s a Card With Apples (a sneak peek!)

Good Monday, y’all!  Hope you had a most wonderful weekend and are ready to Soldier thru the work-week! 🙂  Did you do anything fun to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the Moon-landing?  Like….write something while hanging upside down?  Have a big ole glass of Tang?  Eat some freeze-dried ice cream? 🙂

Yeah – I didn’t do any of those things either.  I just thought back to where I was 50 years ago – and thought “Man.  That was COOL!”  Cuz…it totally was!

And – brave beyond measure.  Even though it is NOT – it SEEMS commonplace to us now, but…can you even imagine?  We had no CLUE what they’d find up there.  Or whether they’d come home (like…. to the point that a speech was waiting for the President just in case they didn’t).  But…they walked out there, strapped on a Saturn V and said….GO!

Wow.  Just….wow.  Body parts made of titanium wrapped in diamond!

On a much MUCH more mundane level, let’s look at a card, shall we?  This one uses a fun sentiment set from the Annual catalog called Here’s A Card.  And – I used the new Apple Punch and Come To Gather DSP (from the 2019 Holiday Catalog), too.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

I started with a piece of Whisper White and embossed it in the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder, then matted it on Pear Pizzazz for the card front.

Next up, I cut two Rectangle Stitched Dies from the wood-design of the new Come To Gather DSP (coming on 4 Sept!) and adhered them to the card front with Liquid Glue.

Using the new Apple Punch, I cut three apples from checked paper in the Come To Gather DSP.  I also used the punch to make three Early Espresso stems and three Pear Pizzazz leaves.  I used Liquid Glue to adhere the stems and leaves to each apple.

I pulled out the Support Ribbon dies and cut a few little hearts from Cajun Craze.  I adhered them to the two apples with Liquid Glue.  Then I stuck all the apples onto the card front with more Liquid Glue.

I stamped the sentiment from Here’s A Card in Cajun Craze on a piece of Whisper White and cut it with the small Rectangle Stitched Die.  Then I popped it onto the middle apple with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

To finish is off, I tied three small bows from Cajun Craze Linen Thread (yup – you read that right!) from the Come To Gather Ribbon Combo Pack (coming 4 Sept) and adhered them with little dabs of Liquid Glue.

On the inside, I added a second sentiment from Here’s A Card in Cajun Craze to a Whisper White panel.  In the corner I added another apple – letting the edges hang over and then trimming the excess with my Paper Snips.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Pear Pizzazz mat and into my Cajun Craze card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another apple on the front…

…and more of the checkered Come To Gather DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Oh my goodness – I love the new Apple Punch (it ALSO makes pumpkins!!) – and the Come To Gather DSP.  You’ll be able to grab both of those – plus the Come To Gather Ribbon Combo – on 4 Sept.  Unless…you join us now or on 1 Aug.  THEN you could get them even faster!  I hope you like!

Check out the Extra Extra Joining Special and…let’s chat! 🙂

If you love holidays—and don’t love taxes—we have some great news for you! Twelve U.S. states will have sales tax holidays for school supplies over the next several weeks. The dates for each state’s sales tax holiday will vary; the definition of “school supplies” will also vary from state to state. Fortunately, a selection of Stampin’ Up! products qualify as school supplies and will be tax-free during each state’s sales tax holiday period. (Sales tax holidays may not apply to additional county, city, and special jurisdiction taxes.)

Finn and Cerah having a little discussion.

He’s apparently said something that she didn’t care for and she’s stuck her tongue out at him.

We will never know….
