Stampin’ Up! Artisan Cool Treats!

Hey, y’all!  Happy Saturday to you.  Hope you’ve got a great weekend ahead of you!

My card for today uses the Cool Treat bundle and a little bit of Tasty Treats Specialty DSP to make a fun little card that’d be good for any special day for a special friend.  Take a look-see:


My sketch is from the Freshly Made Sketches challenge – I just turned it on its side.


And the color scheme is from The Card Concept.


I started by SNAILing two pieces of Tasty Treats Specialty DSP to Pear Pizzazz card stock and then I SNAILd the smaller panel to the card front.

The sentiment, from Cool Treats, is two separate stamped images.  I stamped the first word in Pear Pizzazz on a Whisper White panel.  Then the second word is stamped in Pool Party – easy to line up, since this is a photopolymer stamp set.  Then I SNAILd the panel to a Pear Pizzazz mat.


Next I made my artisan ice cream cone.  This isn’t ice cream you’re going to get at the grocery store.  This is boutique ice cream!  I stamped two scoops on Whisper White – one in stamped-off-once Pear Pizzazz (I suspect this is Mojito flavor) and one in Pool Party (Daiquiri Ice – yes, I have a cocktail theme going on here!).  Then I cut them both out with the matching die in the Frozen Treats Framelits.  The cone is cut from a piece of Crumb Cake card stock.  I used Liquid Glue to adhere the ice cream onto the cone.

I made some gourmet “sauce” by cutting it from some Mint Macaron Glimmer Paper, then I adhered it to the top scoop.


Since this is a grown-up ice cream cone, I decided it needed some edible flowers sprinkled on top.  I stamped one in Pear Pizzazz and two in Pool Party – these little flowers are from the Jar of Love stamp set.  Since I didn’t want any white on them, I just went ahead and fussy cut them.  Then I adhered the Pool Party flowers with Liquid Glue and then popped the Pear Pizzazz flower on with a little piece of Stampin’ Dimensional.  I finished them off with a tiny Pearl Basic Embellishment.

I adhered the cone to the sentiment panel with Liquid Glue, then popped the whole thing onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Then I added a little bow made with a piece of Whisper White Solid Baker’s Twine.


On the inside, I stamped a Pool Party ice cream scoop in the corner of a Whisper White panel.  Then I stuck a sticky note mask over top, and stamped the cone dish in Crumb Cake.  The sentiment, also from the Cool Treats stamp set, is stamped in Pear Pizzazz and embellished with a Pool Party flower from Jar of Love.  And, I added another little pour of Mint Macaron Glimmer Paper.


I SNAILd the panel to a Pear Pizzazz mat and into my Crumb Cake card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got a reprise of the Daiquiri Ice scoop and cup, complete with Mint Macaron Glimmer Paper sauce, plus some Pool Party flowers on the front…


…and the envelope flap got some more of the Tasty Treats Specialty DSP.


Et Voila!  I think the quiet color scheme helped the Cool Treats bundle create a very grown-up ice cream card for a special someone! Hope you like!

FINN-FAN FIX….

I own a guard dog.

He’s got baggy pantaloons.

He’s a little bit goofy (don’t know how that happened – I specified Not Goofy).

He sheds.  Like crazy.

But.  I do believe he’d at least warn of impending doom.

The other day, as I was channeling Carol Brady Alice (let’s be real – I don’t think Carol knew the difference between a chuck roast and a salmon), Ree Drummond and June Cleaver – putting a pot roast in the oven in anticipation of Wayne’s return home, my goofball started barking and growling!  BIG dog barks and growls!


I went to see what the problem was, thinking it was the horses coming to the pond for a drink and splash.  But, no.  There were guys at our neighbors, with a skid steer and chain saw and riding lawn mowers.  They were wearing orange jackets.

And they were obviously suspect.

He realized it was going to take a while to adequately keep his eye on these potential bad guys.  Being the man of the house and all.  So he paced himself…


But, as with all things when you’re just a kid, interest was soon lost.  Mom was aware of the problem.  She was a pilot, you know.  She could probably handle a few guys in orange jackets…


A kid’s gotta eat! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Cool Tasty Treats!

Happy Monday, y’all!  Once again I’ll say I hope this finds you safe!  Quite the weather weekend we had, yes?  As I write this on Sunday night, I can say we got off lucky.  We did find a tree down over our perimeter fence – thank goodness for smooth wire!  And a huge branch on the wood fence.  So a little work for Wayne. 🙁  But overall, so far so good.

Finn’s definitely learned a new skill from this wet weather.  It’s the fine art of standing still while your mom tries to dry off all your fur.  Every.  Time.  He.  Comes.  In.  Bleh!  The downside of having a dog!!  But, on the flip side, the rain water is making his coat all silky and shiny! 🙂

He’s ready for the nice weather again, I know.  He’s a little bored.

And you know what happens when a teenager gets bored….

Yea.

You know.

finn-blur
He’s a little cray-cray! 🙂

My card for today is one that depends heavily on some of the pretty Tasty Treats Specialty DSP.  I let the paper do the work and just added a sentiment from the Cool Treats stamp set and a few little embellishments.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Santa’s Sleigh Pink Christmas Thanks!

Good morning from Colorado!  Igor and I came for a day and a half to visit with my mom – we’d visited her at Christmas when he lived with us 21 years ago!  He very sweetly treated me to the trip – and we flew First Class.  What a lovely Christmas present!

This is what Finn thought of me leaving…

finn-with-his-chin-on-the-tub
But – the weather here is beautiful (if cold cold cold!) and the trip was uneventful.

And with its own beauty!

clouds-from-the-plane-window
So – this one’s from Colorado!

Since it’s the season of thank-you cards (that’s the season that follows Christmas, by the way!), I decided to make a Christmas thank you card.  I used the lovely Santa’s Sleigh Thinlits and some Cable Knit Dynamic TIEF, a bit of Softly Falling, and the new (in the Sale-A-Bration catalog) Any Occasion stamp set.  Take a look-see:

santas-sleigh-pink-christmas-4-stamps-n-lingers
Yes. It’s pink. 🙂

Here’s why – it’s all because of the TGIF Challenges!

tgifc87
I started with a piece of Whisper White and ran it thru the Softly Falling TIEF.  Then I used a piece of Stampin’ Sponge and brushed across the embossed portions of the panel with Blushing Bride ink.  I also brushed the edges with a Blushing Bride inked sponge, then SNAILd it on Flirty Flamingo card stock.

To make my Santa’s Sleigh tree, I first made a colored and embossed piece of Whisper White.  I inked up the raised portion of the Cable Knit Dynamic TIEF with the Blushing Bride ink, just tapping all over on the folder.  Then I carefully laid the panel inside, closed the folder and embossed it.   When I pulled it out of the folder, I cut two trees with the Santa’s Sleigh die.  While I was at it, I cut a third from Blushing Bride.

santas-sleigh-pink-christmas-3-stamps-n-lingers
I used Multi-Purpose Liquid Glue to adhere the Blushing Bride and right-most trees.   Then I popped the final one on with Stampin’ Dimensionals!

For the sentiment, I stamped the Thank You from the Sale-A-Bration Any Occasion stamp set in Flirty Flamingo on Whisper White.  Then I added a “string” with the string stamp image.  I fussy cut the whole thing and then used Liquid Glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere it across the trees.

santas-sleigh-pink-christmas-8-stamps-n-lingers
To add a little sumpin’ sumpin, I adhered two Blushing Bride sequins (from the Blushing Bride Sequin Trim) to the end of the banner “string”.  And finally, I added some Flirty Flamingo stars Enamel Shapes.

On the inside, I used a Whisper White panel and stamped the tree from Santa’s Sleigh in Blushing Bride.

santas-sleigh-pink-christmas-5-stamps-n-lingers
I matted the panel on Flirty Flamingo and then into my Blushing Bride card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

For my Whisper White Medium Envelope, I added a Santa’s Sleigh tree in Blushing Bride on the front…

santas-sleigh-pink-christmas-6-stamps-n-lingers
…and I embossed the flap in the Softly Falling TIEF, then brushed it with Blushing Bride using a sponge.

santas-sleigh-pink-christmas-7-stamps-n-lingers
Et Voila!  A pink-and-white Christmas card for the Thank-You Season using the Santa’s Sleigh stamp and thinlits set.  Hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Tasty Trucks Bring Cool Treats!

Well – good Monday-day-after-Christmas to y’all!  I sure hope you had a most wondrous Christmas Day with your family and friends.  And ate a lot!

We sure did – the Prime Rib was excellent and we had too many sides to count.  As usual!

Finn had himself a wonderful day.  He got three new bones – one from him mom (me!), one from his grandma (my mom!) and one from his Auntie Jan!

finn-with-his-new-christmas-bones
That’s him with just two of his new chewie-up-things!  He’s so happy!  And on top of all that – there was company!  Lots and lots of company!  And they all petted him and loved on him and told him how very handsome he is!  Which, of course, he is!  So, as I type this, he’s sacked flat out – sawing logs.  One.  Tired.  Little.  Man!! 🙂

My card for today is a quick and easy one – that uses the 2017 Occasions stamp set called Cool Treats and a freebie stamp set in the Sale-A-Bration catalog called Tasty Trucks.  Take a look-see:

tasty-trucks-and-cool-treats-4-stamps-n-lingers
I started out by cutting a Crumb Cake card base the same size as one of our Note Cards and Envelopes – 3 1/2″ x 5″ – but I made it a top-folding card (versus the side-fold in the Note Cards).  I made a background directly on the card base by stamping the pennant banner image from the Tasty Trucks set in Crumb Cake ink.  I just stamped it all over.

tasty-trucks-and-cool-treats-2-stamps-n-lingers
Then I took two strips of Cool Treats Designer Washi Tape and ran them across the front of the card.

My art and sentiment panel is a piece of Very Vanilla card stock.  First I stamped the two sentiment words from Cool Treats.  I stamped “Cool” first in Pool Party and then added “You’re” in Watermelon Wonder.

I made popsicles from Peekaboo Peach and Watermelon Wonder, using the images from Cool Treats.  I first stamped the popsicle images – the Peekaboo Peach ones are stamped full-strength, and the Watermelon Wonder was stamped off once.  I added the double-line image to the Peekaboo Peach treats – also in Peekaboo Peach.  For the Watermelon Wonder, I used the little curved line image – stamping it off once before stamping the popsicle,

tasty-trucks-and-cool-treats-1-stamps-n-lingers
Finally, I added Crumb Cake popsicle sticks and SNAILd my panel to the card front.  And that was it!

On the inside, I repeated the Crumb Cake pennants background and the two strips of Cool Treats Designer Washi.  My Very Vanilla panel got a sentiment from the Tasty Trucks set in Peekaboo Peach.  Then I added a line of tiny ice cream cones in Crumb Cake – this image is one of several tasty goodies in the Tasty Trucks set.  I colored the ice creams with my Pool Party, Watermelon Wonder and Peekaboo Peach Stampin’ Write Markers.

tasty-trucks-and-cool-treats-5-stamps-n-lingers
I SNAILd the panel into the Crumb Cake card base and…done!

My Crumb Cake envelope (from the Crumb Cake Note Cards and Envelopes), got more Tasty Trucks ice cream cones across the front…

tasty-trucks-and-cool-treats-6-stamps-n-lingers
…and a Cool Treats popsicle in Watermelon Wonder on the envelope flap.

tasty-trucks-and-cool-treats-7-stamps-n-lingers
Et Voila!  Quick.  Easy.  Single layer so it’s easy to mail!  Pretty much perfect – and all thanks to the fun images in the Cool Treats stamp set and the free and fun images in Tasty Trucks! Hope you like!
