Stampin’ Up! Marquee Messages Shaker Card for the Happy Stampers Blog Hop

Mornin’, y’all –  it’s Thursday and that means it’s Blog Hop Day!  We’ve got a color challenge today – we were asked to use Pool Party, Mossy Meadow and Soft Suede.  Be sure to check out how all the ladies in the hop use these colors in their projects today!

It took me a while to make this card this week.  I’ve been cropping and watermarking and posting new catalog sneak peek pictures.  And – the card I planned to make wanted a new item from my Pre-order.  So, I had the card started and then was waiting for my goodies to arrive.

And then they did.  But so did the notice that my tomatoes and pepper plants had shipped and will be here today!  So, spent most of Wednesday mixing soil and getting the raised beds ready.  And they are!  And, it was way too pretty a day to spend it inside – even to stamp!

So…what was I waiting for in my pre-order?  One of the items that caused a ton of excitement at OnStage last week.  Something that should be so…insignificant…and yet is kind of huge!

Foam Adhesive Strips - Stamps-N-Lingers
Can you see what that is?  That, my friends, is a package of Foam Adhesive Strips!  You’ll get a package of strips – all about 10 – 11″ long (2 sheets per package).  The strips are little – maybe just over 1/8″ wide? – and are double sided.  And they make making shaker cards a snap!

So – using these strips, and a new available-1-June stamp set called Marquee Messages, I combined the colors of the challenge, the new stamp set and some old friends from the current catalog and this is what I came up with.  Take a look-see:Marquee Messages Shaker Birthday 4 - Stamps-N-Lingers
So – I started this one by stamping the Marquee image from the Marquee Messages stamp set in Versamark Ink on a piece of Whisper White card stock.  Then I sprinkled it with love Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed the image.  I fussy cut it – to include the inside.  Just poke your snips thru the middle and then carefully snip your way to the inner edge.  Heat embossing makes fussy cutting easy!  I gave the image a little color with my Pool Party Stampin’ Write Marker.

Stampin’ Up! Layered Letters Alphabet Happy New Year Card


Well, good morning to you all on this very first Stamps-N-Lingers Blog Post for 2016! 🙂  I hope that you all had a great New Years Eve – and didn’t need too much hair of the dog this morning!  We did our usual – woke up (blearily) for a few minutes when we heard fireworks outside.  And went right back to sleep.  Yes, it’s true.  We are dyed-in-the-wool party animals! 😉

I made y’all a fun Happy New Year card today – but, when you see it, you’ll know that it could be a card for a lot of “Happy” occasions!  I used an old favorite – one I haven’t pulled out in a while – the Layered Letters Alphabet stamp set.  I also picked an image from the soon-to-be-retired Six Sayings Hostess set from the 2015 Holiday Catalog.  And I also took advantage of the Confetti TIEF – available in just 4 days in the Occasions Catalog!  Take a look-see:
