Stampin’ Up! Crafting Forever Do Something Crafty

Mornin’, y’all!  It’s the end of the week again!  Whoo-hoo!

Don’t forget about my Eastern Palace Ordering Special – going on thru 8 May (which is Monday!).  Don’t miss out on Double Peppermint points and more.  More details are down below!

My card today uses the Crafting Forever stamp set from the new catalog.  This is the second time I’ve played with it – it’s just so cute!  This time I combined it with some of the new Fresh Florals DSP Stack.  Take a look-see:

Yep – no sentiment on the front.  Decided to try something wild and crazy!

My layout is inspired by the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.

And the color scheme is from the Color Throwdown this week.

I started by running a Whisper White panel thru the new Oh My Stars TIEF (avail 1 June!) for the card front.

Next, I stamped the Crafting Forever pot of paint brushes on a piece of Whisper White in Basic Black Archival Ink.  Then I placed the card stock near the edge of my Big Shot platform and set my Circles Layering Framelit die so that it would only cut a partial circle.

I ran it thru the Big Shot and then fussy cut the brushes – resulting in the image you see on the card.  Half circle…half fussy cut! 🙂

Then I used my Bermuda Bay, Wisteria Wonder and Powder Pink Stampin’ Write Marker (this one is available on 1 June) and colored the art tools.  I used some Smoky Slate to color the bristles.  And I decided to add a few faux stitches with my Basic Black marker while I was at it.

I cut a piece of Powder Pink paper from the Fresh Florals DSP Stack and SNAILd it to the card front.  Over that is a shorter piece of Bermuda Bay 3/8″ Mini Chevron Ribbon (1 June), adhered with some Liquid Glue.

I used a scalloped edge die from the Circles Layering Framelits to cut a Wisteria Wonder mat and SNAILd it over the paper and ribbon.  Then I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop my brushes over the top.

For the final touch, I stamped the Crafting Forever image in Basic Black ink on a piece of Powder Pink Fresh Florals DSP and fussy cut just the pot.  Then I adhered it over the stamped image with some Liquid Glue.  And that was it for the card front!

On the inside, I used the marker-to-rubber technique to color the words on a second sentiment from Crafting Forever using Wisteria Wonder and Bermuda Bay markers, and stamped it on a Whisper White panel.  I also added part of the brushes image in Basic Black Archival Ink and colored them with the same markers I’d used on the front.  To make the pot, I once again stamped the image on the Powder Pink paper and cut just that part out – then I adhered it to the panel and trimmed the excess with my snips.

I SNAILd the panel to a Wisteria Wonder mat and into my Powder Pink card base.  Then I SNAILd a Wisteria Wonder mat to the front of the card, popped my card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another Crafting Forever brushes image – colored and pieced just like the others – on the front…

…and the envelope flap got some more of the Powder Pink Fresh Florals DSP.

Et Voila!  I sort of like the simplicity of the no-sentiment card front.  Not sure I’ll do a bunch of them, but…I like how this one turned out.  Crafting Forever is just such a fun stamp set for us, don’t you think?  I hope you like!

Finn-Fan Fix…

The Finn-ster had a play date with his sister the other day.  

And we practiced a little obedience while we were there.

But mostly they did a lot of playing!!

And there was a little standing-over-the-top-of-my-sister…

On top of that, they had a little face-to-face with Maybelle.

Maybelle is my friend’s little cow.  She’s part Angus and part Brahma.  And she’ll die of old age at Jan’s house.  She gets fly-sprayed, brushed and walked every day.  And has an entire pasture full of grass and a pond.  And a little shed.

It’s pretty much cow-heaven.

Finn wasn’t too sure that Maybelle was a real thing.  He knew she was “real” – just wasn’t too sure what she was….she smelled funny, sounded funny and looked funny.

We don’t need one of those at our house, Mom.

Whatever “those” are….

Stampin’ Up! Crafting Forever Sneak Peek

It’s Friday!  And my puppy is back, my husband is recovering and my vegetable plants will arrive today!  Whoo-hooo!

I have a cute little card to share with you today, courtesy of the new Crafting Forever stamp set (available 1 June) in the new 2017-2018 Annual Catalog.  I paired it with a little bit of Pick a Pattern DSP (1 June) and came up with a simple CAS card.  Take a look-see:

I played with the sketch challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments.

And my not-my-normal-style color palette is from the Color Throwdown challenge this week.

I used Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Rich Razzleberry and Crushed Curry for this card!

To begin, I took a piece of Whisper White card stock and added Rich Razzleberry “stitches” around the edge with my Stampin’ Write Markers, then SNAILd it to a Pumpkin Pie mat.

The middle panel is a piece of Crushed Curry paper from the Pick a Pattern DSP, matted on Pumpkin Pie and SNAILd to the card front.

I stamped the scissors from the Crafting Forever stamp set, in Basic Black Archival Ink, on Whisper White, and fussy cut them.  I kind of liked the symmetry of cutting the scissors out with my scissors! 😏

I colored the handles with my Stampin’ Write Markers in Pumpkin Pie, Rich Razzleberry and Real Red and used Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere them to the card.

My Crafting Forever sentiment is stamped in Real Red on Whisper White and cut with a Stitched Shapes Framelits circle, then matted on a scalloped Pumpkin Pie circle cut with the Circles Layering Framelits.  I popped that on with Dimensionals, and the card front was done!  See?  Told ya it was quick and easy!!

For my inner liner, I repeated the Rich Razzleberry “stitches” around a Whisper White panel and added the Crafting Forever scissors in Basic Black Archival Ink.  Then I colored the handles with my Crushed Curry Stampin’ Write Marker.

I SNAILd it to a Pumpkin Pie mat and into my Rich Razzleberry card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another pair of scissors on the front – this one colored in Real Red…

…and a bit more of the Pick a Pattern DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This Crafting Forever stamp set is so cute – and it’s also the Angel Policy stamp set for 2017-2018.  Hope you like – and will be adding it to your wish list! 😊

Finn-Fan Fix…

So – the Finn-meister is home.

And he’s a good Aussie.

Which is to say…he’s exhausted! 😊👍😊👍

He and Ryder played and swam and ran and played and swam and ran….

Here’s how the pick-up went…

On the way down there, I reminded Wayne that Finn was going to be terribly excited to see us.  He was likely going to do a lot of leaping and wiggling and jumping around.  Protect the belly!

We were prepared.

Finn – was not.  He walked into the room – flat footed.  Tail definitely wagged – but…he was very quiet.  I know he was happy to see us.

He simply didn’t have an iota of excess energy with which to express it!

He laid down on the floorboard of the van and slept all the way home.  As I type this – he’s sacked out flat on the floor in the bathroom where the tile is cool and the A/C is blowing on him.

All in all – a wonderful experience for him!

It was a little embarrassing listening to all the praise heaped upon his freckled face, though!  

I got the distinct impression that they liked him.

At least a little bit! 😎😎
